Ravi and Vijay's friendship was an example by itself. One was Life-Jaan, the other Jigar-Courage, the famous singer Ravi Kumar (Ayub Khan) and the daring Vijay Kumar (Manik Bedi). Vijay's mother had looked after Ravi since his childhood as such Ravi's life is indebted to them. It was said that nobody could separate the two friends.

Vijay's father had died when he was very young and till today his mother had not told him that the reason for his father's death was Jaikishan (Jackie Shroff) who is hiding from Vijay. Jaikishan is dreaded by all the rich people and every poor man loves his name. Some times Vijay and Jaikishen do meet, but they do not recognise each other.

One day Vijaykumar falls love with a girl called Meena (Mamta Kulkarni). The same girl, by the name of Minu falls in love with Ravi. Both Vijay and Ravi love the same girl, and one day Vijay comes to know that the girl who he loves and who is his life is in the arms of Ravikumar. Vijay's life comes to a standstill and from here begins a series of misunderstandings.

Does Ravikumar also come to know of this secret? 
Does Vijay ask RAvi for his love?
Finally, who does Meena belong to?
Why and how is Jaikishan responsible for Vijay's father's death?
When does Vijay come to know about Jaikishan's actual identity?

For answers to all these questions, see JANE JIGAR.
