(Released: May 10, 1985)
Mr. Malwankar (A K Hangal) lives a small tenement in Grant Road, Bombay, with his son, Arjun (Sunny Deol), daughter, Sudha (Supriya Pathak), and wife, Rukmini (Shashikala), who is his second wife, as his first wife passed away. Although he is well past his retirement age, he continues to work for an abusive employer, Ashok (Ghanshyam). Arjun's attempts at seeking employment are all in vain. One day when hoodlums are beating up a man, he intervenes, beats the hoodlums up with the help of half of his friends. This is when his life changes forever. One of his friends', Mohan (Satyajit Puri), is killed; Arjun finds out who the killers are, and kills them in broad daylight; he is arrested, and subsequently released, only to be told by his father that he is no longer welcome. A politician, Shiv Kumar Chougule (Anupam Kher), takes a liking to Arjun and employs him, and gives him all the support and assistance he needs to fight hoodlums. Arjun now finds he has a mission in life, and is quite content. He meets with Geeta Sahani (Dimple Kapadia), and both fall in love. Then there is a change in the political set-up, which results in Shiv Kumar compromises with the very powers he had undertaken to destroy. Now Arjun has no one to stand behind him and support him, and he may have to take up his fight against Shiv Kumar, or die trying.
