He commits a murder to save the honour of his wife and runs away. Police follows and fires at him. Police thinks that he has been killed in an encounter and lost in the sea. Shanta is told that she has become a widow.

Now she has only Sunil to live for. Sunil, when grows up, becomes a police officer and was sent after the master criminal SAKIA who was none other than his father Haria, who was saved from a sure death by Pammi, Dr. Umesh, and Amarnath who makes him believe that he is Sakia - Pammi's Hush and Haria accepts that because his memory is lost. By Pammi he gets a son Baldev, who was brought up in an atmosphere of big crime........

How Sunil as a symbol of law clashes with his father and half brother, the symbol of crime? And what happens next?

You will get answer to these questions on the screen in film HAATHKADI.
