RAJA is a happy-go-lucky youngman who has to bully extravagant people to raise cash, only to provide everything to his beloved NISHA. But unfortunately most of his life is spent in or out of prison transit. Nisha loves Raja but, she doesn't like Raja's reckless life style.

Raja comes across BHEEM THAPA who has been watching Raja like a shadow. Thapa tells Raja that he can help him to fulfil all his dreams for Nisha if only Raja agrees to play Thapa's tune. Raja shows his inclination and Thapa shows a photograph to Raja. Rjaa is stunned to see the photograph of his look-alike. Thapa reveals that photo belongs to a multi-millionaire NIRMAL who inherits a huge tea estate in Palanpur. Raja agrees to take over as Nirmal and strikes a deal with Thapa.

Nirmal on the other hand is on the look out for the real murderer of his fahter and in the process languishes his love for SANDHYA. With the turn of events Nirmal becomes the target of his wily Manager in league with the seductive step mother of Raja and dies in a manipulated car accident.

Now Thapa take advantage of the situation and plants Raja as Nirmal - to make believe that Nirmal is not dead, but very much alive.

Do all the people who had seen Nirmal being cremated take Raja's claim as Nirmal still alive?
Does the strong hand of law manage to solve the mystery behind this Who's Who drama?

To divulge the mystery you have to see "CHHUPA RUSTAM" on the screen replete with songs, dances, thrills and frills.
