Greed begets sin and sin begets death. It is a story of a greedy and vile man, notoriously known as "Lal Nishan"; whose name spells terror in the minds of peace-loving people of Bankipur State. Disguised as a noble man, he becomes the right hand man of the Maharaja, in order to know the secret of the hidden treasure from the Princess Tarni. Having failed in his design, Lal Nishan tactfully manages to hire a ragged and handsome wild horse trainer Dilher to make false love with the princess and know the secret. But love knows no bounds and Delher knowing the secret of Treasure from the Princess, fails to divulge it to Lal Nishan gets enraged and cunningly traps both Dilher & the Princess and tactfully tries to take out the secret from the Princess. How Dilher with the help of his faithful horse and a tactful dog saves the Princess from the jeopardy and how magnificently he recovers the Treasure from Lal Nishan by a blood-curdling and death defying duel in a most spectacular and breath-taking climax, will haunt your memory forever. See it on the Silver Screen.
