Bitter hatred had always existed between two Rajput families, namely those of Bharat Singh (Pran) and Prithviraj Singh (Sunil Dutt), resulting in the death of Bharat's nephew. Years later, Prithviraj's son Dharamraj (Sunil Dutt in a double role) gets married to Sunaina (Yogeeta Bali), who gives birth to a baby boy named Deshraj. On Deshraj's 10th birthday, Prithviraj goes to make peace with Bharat and invites him for a birthday party, which Bharat attends, but there is no end to the animosity - which results in the death of Prithviraj, when his chauffeur, Chandu (Ramesh Deo), is bribed and manipulated by Bharat and his men. Dharamraj is beside himself with anger, he poisons Chandu, and sends Deshraj to the U.S. to continue his studies and live in a safer atmosphere. Years later, Deshraj (Anil Kapoor) returns home, meets and falls in love with a young woman named Leela (Poonam Dhillon), who is none other than Chandu's daughter. Fearing for his son's life, Dharamraj proposes peace with Bharat and would like his son to marry Bharat's daughter, Padmini (Anita Raj). When Deshraj refuses to marry Padmini, Dharamraj has Leela abducted and imprisoned. Deshraj must now make a choice - he can marry Padmini and ensure there is peace between the two families or alternatively he can elope with Leela and live a life full of fear and uncertainty, not knowing when they will be killed, and whether it will at the hands of Bharat or at the hands of Dharamraj himself.
