On Republic Day, two political bigwigs, Deshbandhu Sharma & Shankar, visit when they mortify VK because of the rivalry prior and deny him his chance of being set free. Then, his colleagues seek the reason, and he spins back. A few years ago, VK was a courageous investigative journalist who consistently defied anarchy & depravity. He is acquainted with a classical dancer, Maria Fernandes, and loves her. Once, Deshbandhu & Shankar deceive and molest her when VK affirms to print it. Being aware of it, the brutes apprehend him with false allegations. In the court, subduing Maria, they deem him insane and place him in the asylum. Accordingly, he is subjected to torments and turns into a handicap. Later, they shift him to Central Jail.

Time passes, and VK is acquitted, and with the aid of Maria, he sets up a newspaper, New Delhi Diary, accompanying trained journalists, his sister Uma, and her beau Suresh. VK frames for counterstrike by creating a nonexistent journalist, Viswanath, and breaking the prison of his team. At once, they start their murder spree, which VK instantly publishes, and that triumph. Within no time, the paper summits as the leading one in India. Suresh & Uma suspect something fishy. Meanwhile, Deshbandhu & Shankar move forward for VK's amity owing to his popularity, which he accepts. In tandem, VK's team slaughters Deshbandhu, whom Suresh witnesses and collects the evidence. Hence, VK edicts to remove him, too, when Siddique & Appu die. Uma overhears the conversation and revolts against VK, who is aware of their love affair and rescues Suresh. Then, Ananth & Vishnu move to assassinate Shankar and die in the encounter, and VK publishes it. However, knowing his survival, VK is dejected but does not leave the spirit. During that time, Shankar heckles when Maria eliminates him. Finally, the movie ends with VK & Maria proceeding with their sentence.
