It is a remake of Uttam Kumar's Bengali classic Ami Se O Shakha (1975),which was also based on the Bengali story of the same name by Ashutosh Mukherjee. When a deprived boy, brought up in a privileged family and indebted for virtually everything he has, lends in a perplexing situation, the life seems unfair to him. There are very few who actually appreciate benevolence showered on them. When it comes to repay such debt, many of us try to find excuse to avoid the difficult situation. But the protagonist of this movie is a noble individual, an ideal hero, who knows that everything he has in life, is owed to a family and when he finds himself in a situation where he has to give up his love and profession, he doesn't look back.


Dr. Sudhir Roy (Amitabh Bachchan) and Dr. Prashant Chaturvedi (Vinod Mehra) meet Ms. Kavita Goel (Raakhee) on a holiday and start meeting her regularly. Though he himself was interested in Kavita, Sudhir recommends Prashant to her for marriage. When she asks why he himself can't marry her, Sudhir narrates his flashback.

Sudhir was the second son of a poor school teacher and hopes that his big brother would get a job and provide for them. But when his big brother becomes mentally ill and his father dies, he resorts to petty thieving. When police catch him, Magistrate recognizes him and adopts him. Sudhir grows up along with magistrate's son Prashant and receives same education and becomes a pediatrician. Now he tells her that he can't marry her on medical grounds as his brother was a psychiatric patient and he has a criminal background.

Kavita and Prashant marry and Prashant leaves for London tor higher studies while Sudhir stays in Bombay to take care of magistrate and Kavita. After coming back, he starts medical practice and charge more money from patients especially to do illegal abortions. Sudhir tries to reason with him but he wouldn't listen. One day Prashant's patient dies during abortion and he gets arrested. Sudhir tells police that he was the actual culprit and changes all hospital records to prove that. In return he takes word from Prashant and Kavita to use medical profession to serve people, not to earn money. They give him their word and do exactly the same. Sudhir gets nine year sentence and loses his medical registration.

After nine years Kavita and Prashant welcome Sudhir from jail along with their son.
