Dacoit Chief SUNDER SINGH and his lawless followers especially CHANDRA a dacoit girl had created terror in the hearts of peace loving people and Raja of the state. But prince MANIK with his few faithful friends kept on trying various ways to face the dacoits.....
Once he was attacked by CHANDRA and party... they fought... and as the fate would have it both were attracted to each other... and fell in love... They kept on meeting... they loved under the coolness of moon...and fought as enemies under the heat of sun...
CHANDRA could not control her jealousy when she saw another girl KUMARI (daughter of pradhan RAMSINGH) in love with MANIK......she kidnapped KUMARI and offered her for human sacrifice before her evil Gods.... But to the greatest surprise of all, Chief SUNDER SINGH objected to the sacrifice when he saw KUMARI.........!!
MANIK'S doubts were now confirmed, he explained CHANDRA that pradhan RAMSINGH were two names of the same man....and it is therefore he did not allow the death of his beloved daughter.
CHANDRA was in a great conflict, she set out to solve it BUT HOW???
Did she kill KUMARI and marry prince MANIK?... or 
Did she allow her to marry MANIK as per the wishes and orders of SUNDER SINGH? Did she kill KUMARI and marry prince MANIK? ...OR
Did she allow her to marry MANIK as per the wishes and orders of SUNDER SINGH? Did she kill or forgive her chief whom she worshipped like God...who was also murderer of her father?
Did she cease or continue to be a dacoit girl?
