The orphaned Mustafa (Nana Patekar) is taken in by a powerful mafioso (Paresh Rawal), and grows up to be his main henchman. Invariably attired in magnificent raiment, he is a ruthless, invincible servant to his master. His attitude to life changes due to two events. He notices the incorruptibility of a government servant, a modest Hindu family man with a wife and two grown up children. And he falls in love with a cabaret dancer who dies in an attack targeting him.
