BALWANT (Raza Murad) runs a country liquor unit under the protection of Police Inspector BILLARE (Arun Bakshi). BALWANT always dreams of being a rich man. To achieve this end, he in connivation with BADSHAH (Dan Dhanoa) and HEERA (Anupam Kher), manages to kidnap and hold at ransom, the baby seth of SETH DHANRAJ (Subiraj).
When BALWANT’s wife (Nandita Thakur) tries to stop him in doing such an act, he mercilessly kills her and passes on the blame on his own young son SHIVA and gets him arrested.
BALWANT snatches the ransom amount and disappears, leaving instructions with BADSHAH to do away with the child.
The boy, SHIV passes through a rough and stormy youth to grow up to be a feared hired assassin, SHIVA (ANIL KAPOOR).
One day SHIVA’s friend SALIM (Chunky Pandey) takes him to a brothel, where an attempt is on to molest innocent PARO (Vijaya Shanti). SHIVA interferes and saves PARO. PARO now adores.
Somewhere, HEERA bumps into SALIM, whom he disguises and places at SETH DHANRAJ’s house
