Queen Madhuri is known as Hunterwali because of her penchant for punishing the criminals of her kingdom with a hunter whip. Under her just reign there is peace and prosperity in the kingdom. But her cousin Pratap has designs on the throne. He is successful in invading the kingdom and also captures Madhuri. But before he can capture her daughter Kishori, she is rescued by the faithful Ishwar Singh. Ishwar Singh raises her and trains her in combat, along with his son Vijay. Fifteen years later, the time comes for Kishori to take on the mantle of Hunterwali and deliver justice to the poor and oppressed. Getting word of this, Pratap sends his forces to arrest her. Vijay is captured by them, but the heroic Kishori manages to rescue him.

Pratap has Madhuri imprisoned in a dungeon and taunts her with the threat of capturing her daughter. He announces that Madhuri will be hanged to lure Kishori. But Kishori and her trusted hunter foil his plans. With some help from Vijay and many death-defying acts, she captures Pratap and his chief henchman Ajit. Peace reigns in the kingdom again as Queen Madhuri is restored and Pratap and Ajit get their just rewards.
