Struggle for existance and fight against tyranny is as old as the ages. Rajkumar an innocent farmer also fought for the existance of his folks and wanted to liberate them from the autocratic regime of Jagirdar and his puppet Veersingh. Renoo the only daughter and heir of Jagirdar who had just returned from a foreign country was also chip of the same block. She too was very much against Rajkumar whose only fault was that he loved the land of his birth, and even wanted to do for it. The only gospel in which he believed was "JIYO AUR JEENE DO". He sacrificed a lot for the achievement of this truth.

He fought for the right of tillers to hold their own land. This was the reason why he was being insulted and assaulted by the Faujdar and Renoo. Even his brother was shot dead, sister-in-law (Bhabhi) abducted and whole village burnt-down. This inflamed Rajkumar who took a solemn oath to take revenge and thus became a decoit. Renoo also took an oath to take revenge from Rajkumar. She succeeded in capturing him. While Rajkumar was being whipped in open-Arjun his comrade-in-arm rescued him. Renoo fled and was followed by Rajkumar, who captured her, took her to a Mandir and forcibly married her and asked her to go back to her home to live a life of a married woman without husband.

Veersingh who also had an eye on Renoo forced Jagirdar to agree to marry Renoo with him.......
