Ramchand and Bhishamchand wre two pioneering brothers in business. Bhishamchand, a life long bachelor brought up the two sons of Ramchand on his demise. He also gave the family business a firm foundation. Khubchand (Vinod Doshi) the older son of Ramchand begets two sons, Dhanraj (Victor Banerjee) and Sandeepraj (Akash Khurana).
Puranchand, Khubchand’s younger brother had died a few years ago. His three sons are Dharamraj (Raj Babbar), Balraj (Kulbhshan Kharbanda) and Bharatraj (Anant Nag). The film is tale of intrigue, plots and the inevitable war between the two families. Another player in the game is Karan (Shashi Kapoor) an orphan brought up by Bhishamchand. A series of events take place that bring the long hidden feud between the two families to fight and despite Bhishamchand’s efforts to mediate between the two, the situation gets out of hand and events take a tragic turn.
Dhanraj’s men accidentally kill the young son of Balraj and to take revenge Bharatraj murders Karan. Quite a few skeletons from the family cupboard are brought out in the open that only adds to the tensions and hatred, finally culminating in the destruction of the two families making us ponder on the brittleness of moral fabric.
