Renowned for his bravery, Major Arjun Singh (Shahrukh Khan) ranks among the elite group of officers in the armed forces. Geeta (Sridevi), a Lawyer and Arjun Singh fall in love and soon, the knot, Arjun Singh has a unique sense of humour and pretends to be dead on a number of occasions. Geeta obviously, hates this prank which one day becomes a reality. Arjun Singh is assassinated by a terrorist Nagraj (Danny Denzongpa) and his friends Pancham (Tinu Anand) and Rahul (Asif Shaikh), following a gallant fight put up by Arjun Singh in a bid to free his sister Gayatri (Neena Softa) from their clutches. Geeta's life comes to a standstill in addition to losing her beloved, she also fails to get justice from the Court of Law and no harm is done to the criminals, adding insult to her grave loss. Geeta is humiliated by the villains at every opportunity.

Geeta decides to take law into her own hands. She comes across Kishan (Harish), Kevin (Ronit Roy), Kartar (Ravi Kissen), Khan (Sudesh Berry) and Kabir (Mohnish Behl), all prisoners convicted for murder and sentenced to death and later, masterminds their escape from her brother jailer Raghbir Singh's prison with the single objective of destroying those who destroyed her life. These five men comprise her army. They are soldiers of a different kind, a formidable force which can enable her to avenge her husband's death. 

Does Geeta succeed in her mission? 

To know the answer, you will have to view 'ARMY'.
