Suraj Singh (Sanjay Dutt) is a man victimized by Fate. To bear the loss of his love, Shilpa (Shilpa Shirodkar), he gets addicted to drugs. Then in a complete reversal of attitude he turns against drug dealers. He vows to bring an end to the deadly drug smuggling which wreaks such havoc in people's lives. Dharmesh's daughter Vidya Agnihotri (Sangeeta Bijlani) loves Karan. Karan idolizes Justice Dharmesh Agnihotri, unaware of the man behind the mask of respectability. Daaga hires Suraj and deliberately creates animosity between Suraj and Karan. The enmity between Suraj and Karan is sealed when Karan's father Chandrakant is framed for murder and sent to jail where he is killed. Karan loses complete faith in the judicial system and vows to revenge on Dharmesh.
