Shanti and Raj were both from a middle-class family. Shanti was an ordinary clerk in an office and Raj an Engineer in a huge construction company. They were deeply in love and one day Raj took Shanti home to meet his mother. His mother accepted Shanti and Raj was very happy. But only after he returned home did he know of his mother's true intention. His mother had received a proposal for Raj's marriage for the hand of his boss's daughter. After the marriage, his boss wanted to make Raj a partner in the company. Raj's values dropped, his love was forgotten totally. Shanti's tears merged in the sounds of Raj's shehnai (music played on weddings) on his wedding. He did not accept Shanti even after he found out that she was going to be the mother of his child. Raj now became R. K. Gupta, the business magnate. He tried to silence Shanti with his money. But she did not relent. Shanti left the town and went for away to give birth to a baby boy, Vijay. Before she could see Vijay achieve something in life, she departed from this world, but took a promise from her son that he would be a good human being, he would not lose his values in life. After his mother's death, Vijay left his home town and headed for the city where his father, the business-magnate, R.K. Gupta lived. Here R.K. Gupta lived in his happy world with his wife, his son Shekhar and daughter Kusum. Vijay reached the city ready for a confrontation with his father, the all powerful R.K. Gupta. Vijay, an ordinary person on the one side and R.K. Gupta on the other. There was a world of difference between the two of them, father and son, two faces of the same blood, love of the same woman. Vijay, entered into his fathers life with revenge in his heart. Revenge for all the misery he had made his mother go through. R. K. Gupta had no clue about all this. He did not know that Vijay was his son.
Cold war developed between the two. Finally, one day Vijay reveals the truth to R.K. Gupta. Realising that Vijay was own son, his own blood and Shanti's son, his past hits him like lightening. He remembers Shanti, his lost love. He falls in his own eyes. Today he felt like the poorest man in the world. He had neither Shanti nor his son Vijay.
