COMMANDER is a story of those brave people who fought and loved with equal fury; their roaring bullets announced the ancestral enemity between Dora's and Danda's; two tribes inhabited in the range of mountain.

Dancer Rosy's Cafe was their choiced spot where many a time the peaceful and soothing atmosphere was pungented with the smoke of their guns. Neither the peaceful efforts of Commander, the brave chieftain of Danda's, nor the iron hands of sheriff could avoid the rough nature of John, the notorious head of Dora's and revenges of mischief monger Tony, the step brother of Commander.

Love never bothers for enemity. A heart throbbing revenge by Tony ends in bringing two throbbing hearts of Commander and Vickie, the sweet young sister of John closer to the extent that neither the established enemity nor the rough resistance of John could cause any hinderance towards their love meetings. John furiously decides to kill Commander on the spot, Tony is inspired by Rosy to save his brother while Commander and Vickie had left the place, John picks up tussle with Tony which incidently results in murder of John but with the dagger of Commander. Rosy is at the helm of affairs and Tony inorder to save his skin bribes Captain of a foreign ship to abscond Rosy.
