Deepak Verma, a Planist is prosecuted by an ambitious and ruthless Lawyer named Mr. G.D. Thakral. Deepak's wife Aarti begs Thakral for mercy, but in vain, she and her young children, Arun and his sister Komal watch helplessly as their innocent father is put to gallows.

They struggle through the grim realities of life and grow up. Inspite of his bitter struggles Arun becomes a strong and ideal lawyer, the youngest lawyer in the same Court where Thakral is still heading the show with his ruthless ambitions.

But fate takes a hand in the game................and Vicky lands into a murder case.

So, today it is Vicky, the son of Thakral, facing a charge of murder in Court.
