Sandhya(Mamta Kulkarni) is witness to the brutal death of her Forest Officer father, Sunder Rajan(Girish Karnad) at the hands of a dreaded docoit Jageera(Mukesh Tiwari). Sandhya wishes to end Jageera's inflence in Devdurg region & so she seeks help from Colonel Krishnakant Puri(Amrish Puri) who agrees to assist her. K.K.Puri summons about a dozen of his fellow officers & subordinates to assist him. They all gather at Devdurg loaded with arms & ammunitions to combat Jageera. But Jageera has great influence over the local police too & they prevent K.K.Puri & his men from carrying any sort of guns & weapons. This does not deter Puri & his men & they continue to stay on in Devdurg & gain the confidence of the villagers. Later on the villagers come to know that these men had been dishonourably discharged from the army for being cowards & for retreating when attacked by the enemy. Puri & his men now have two choices. Will they abandon Devdurg & let history repeat itself or will they got back their honour by fighting out the battle like brave men?
