Sameer (Gautam) returns to his basti Sai Nagar after a lapse of ten years. Jimmy (Sunil Shetty) his childhood friend is surprised to see him. Sameer reveals that he has killed two cops in a gun deal. Raghav (Ashutosh Rana) the elder brother of Jimmy, who is underworld don, working for a bigger boss called Dayal (Tinnu Anand) takes Sameer in his gang in the request of Jimmy, but not before getting everything thoroughly checked from Iqbal Danger (Sanjay Dutt). Iqbal Danger, once upon a time was forced to kill the man, who was having an affair with his beloved. Iqbal was jailed but now is a refined singer and a changed person and sings for an audience in his Bewafa Bar.

Preeti (Preeti Jhangiani), who had a liking for Sameer, when he had left the place ten years back, meets him and they fall in love. Bandya (Vinod Kambli) a common friend of Jimmy and Sameer is bumped off. Jimmy gets wild. He wants to revenge the killing of Bandya not aware that his own brother Raghav is the killer of Bandya.

Bandya was killed on the order of Dayal, because Bandya owed money to another gang Afzal company. During this time Sameer's love with Preeti was bloomed but Sameer is compelled to reveal his identity to Preeti that he is an undercover cop and has come on a mission to finish off crime in Sai Nagar and catch Dayal. Preeti is shocked.

All hell (ANNARTH) breaks loose on Jimmy mistaking Afzal's gang as Bandya's killer revenges the death of Bandya. Dayal is furious with this development. He asks Raghav to kill Jimmy his own brother so that the gang ware and gang rivalry between him and Afzal company is averted.

Raghav, because of the greed of money and lust for power personally kills Jimmy.

Sameer now reveals his true identity of cop to Raghav. Raghav wants even his sister to be killed along with Sameer for she is in love with Sameer. Sameer along with Iqbal Danger is finally able to eliminate both Raghav and Dayal and accomplishes his secret mission successfully, but only after going through the pain of losing his dear friend Bandya and Jimmy.
