“Nehle Peh Dehlaa” is the story of those people who sacrifice their lives for the sake of Law and Order. Inspector Harish who died in harness while performing his duty was one such person. Not saitisfied with that, the leader of the smugglers gang who shot him down, kidnaps his two sons and orders them to be met with the same fate.

The elder one, Sunil, however, manages to escape and he comes back to the smugglers den with the police to get his brother released from their custody. But to his shocking surprise he does not find anybody there.

A kind-hearted member of the same gang, Karim Khan, adopts the younger brother as his son and decides to bring him up in an ideal manner. And this secret is known only to another member of the gang named Tiger.

Sunil receives Police training under the supervision of a close friend of his father named Mr. Khan, who is also a Police Officer and Sunil makes his mission of life to bring every law breaker of the country to books and to find out his missing brother, for whom his blind mother is always in tears. Sunil acts and behaves like a “goonda” to eliminate their class and forms a gang of his own by selecting three dare-devils named Rahim, Philomina and his beloved and bewitching Meena as his colleagues.

The proud leader of the smugglers gang now comes to know that a rival gang is functioning in the city that is a step ahead of them in every respect.

Sunil manoeuvers to fall a prey in the hands of that leader with his other members, and begs of him to enroll them as members of the gang. The clever leader puts a condition that their request could be acceded only if they put an end to the life of the I.G. of Police Mr. Khan. Sunil accepts the horrifying condition and this time also he proves himself to be a step ahead of him in smartness.

Sunil after making untiring efforts for a number of years, finally confronts the members of the gang who ruined his family by killing his father, kidnapping his brother and making his mother blind for life. And at this stage Sunil faces another situation in comparison to which the previous ones pale into insignificance. People term this situation as “Destiny” and one who changes the destiny through will power, courage and determination, is known as “NEHLE PEH DEHLAA”
