Synopsis

Captain Vijay Malhotra, attempts to defend himself when three army officials intercept a truck-load of arms and ammunition. They are about to sell illicit ammunation to gangsters. He stops the trio of smugglers, then gets shot to death by a mysterious man by the name of DK.

A subsequent inquiry into this incident revealed that Vijay was guilty of this offence. His dead body was stripped of all medals, and commendations, and left for cremation by his wife, Geeta, and a young son, Raju. The local villagers refused to permit Geeta from even cremating the body of a traitor, and left his body to rot in the hot desert climate. Geeta lives in the desert in depression.

Years later, Vijay's friend (Ashish Vidyarthi) hires Vicky to seek revenge for the people that were involved with the murder of Vijay Malhotra. However nobody understands the reason of the murders. Vicky learns the true history of what happened through his adoptive mother Shanti.
