All the rogues (Smugglers) of the city gave a start. Police became more alert. Vikral landed in India. The bars of the jail, hand-cuffs of the Police and custodians of justice were on the lookout of Vikral. Where was Vikral? But Vikral and his beautiful accomplice Sabrina dodged everybody.

Vikral confronted a dangerous gang in Bombay who wanted to grab treasury of Raja Sambhalpur. The Raja of Sambhalpur was an exact replica of Vikral. Their faces were like identical twins. Vikral refused to work with that gang. But he himself started searching that treasury on the clues given by the gang.

There was a curse on Raja of Sambhalpur and his three sons had died. On being advised by the 'Raj Guru' he sent his fourth son Guru Vachan away from him for fifteen years.

The Boss of the gang and Vikral located Guru Vachan. Vikral succeeded in kidnapping Guru Vachan. But Vikral got into an auto accident and lost his memory. This accident was managed by the boss. The treatment was a heavy electric shock but he managed to run away from the hospital and incidentally met Guru Vachan. They became allies. Vikral had told Guru Vachan that he knew whereabouts of his father and mother before the accident and so Guru Vachan was after Vikral. But Vikral behaved like a mad man. He also behaved like a child. Guru Vachan taught him to fight, run and destruct things. Vikral started to call Guru Vachan his 'Guru'.

One member of the gang Madan fell in true love with Chandra, the princess of Raja Sambhalpur. The unseen boss of the gang kidnapped Madan and sent his younger brother Sunder to the palace to trace the treasury impersonating Guru Vachan. But he failed. The boss kidnapped Vikaral and Guru Vachan. He trained Vikral as Raja and sent him too to the palace. The real Raja was also kidnapped. The boss asked the real Raja and when he refused to tell the whereabouts of the treasury, he through Sabrina kidnapped Princess and when she was insulted by the boss before the real Raja, the Raja told him where the treasury was located.

When the boss's henchmen reached the treasury with Vikral the unreal Raja, Vikral got a heavy shock since the treasury was electrified. Vikral regained his memory. When Vikral saw that the treasury was in his control, he demanded seventy per cent of it from the boss and the boss agreed.

The boss let go off the real Raja and princess on the condition that the real Raja bring the treasury to him and if he wanted his prince and princess alive. But instead of the real Raja, Vikral brought the treasury to the boss. The boss ordered Vikral to leave the treasury and get lost or else his body will be subject to a firing squad. Vikral smilingly opened the bag and it contained stones instead of precious stones.

What happened to the treasury? Who was Vikral? Whether Guru Vachan was re-united to his parents? To know this, you will have to see "Guru Aur Chela" from beginning to end.
