Synopsis[edit]

A former Indian soldier Karan (Sanjay Dutt) wants to seek revenge for his upright father, who was wrongly placed in jail because he is falsely accused and prosecuted by a shrewd lawyer Ravi Verma (Chandrachur Singh) who is backed up by his father in law Singhal (Raj Babbar) .

Singhal daughter Kajal is the wife of corrupt lawyer Ravi, who can win almost any case, During a court case he falsely accuses and convicts a righteous man of corruption and he commits suicide out of disgrace, his son major Karan swears revenge and one day after a party that Kajal and Ravi attend is able to fire a pistol directly at Ravi, but his wife Kajal (Mahima Chaudhry) comes in to save her husband using her body as a shield. Karan fires a second time and Ravi is shot in the spinal cord and loses part of his memory and the doctors diagnose him with 'retrograde amnesia".

In the hospital, Kajal succumbs to her wound and dies. As an attempt to restore Ravi's memory, Singhal requests the help of a street women Kajri, who looks exactly like Kajal (Mahima Chaudhry, in a dual role) to pretend to be Ravi's wife temporarily.

However, obstinate Karan is still seeking his revenge by stalking Ravi in the hospital and hatches a plan to kill Ravi. Karan and Kajri collect all the evidence that proves Karan's father's innocence. Ravi regains his memory and starts to sympathise with Karan, with the help of Kajri he promises Karan that once he gains full recovery he will prove to the court that Karan's father was truly innocent, but wrongly persescuted presenting all the proof. Learning of this turn of events, Singhal turns the tables on Ravi.

A major family feud ensues between Singhal and Ravi. Ravi with the help from Karan wins over the final court case and finally the real perpetrators are placed behind bars (including Singhal who had instigated this ), Ravi and Kajri unite happy at last and Karan gives himself up to the police voluntarily.
