Master Dinanath (Amitabh Bachchan) a freedom fighter played a major role in the 1942 Quit India Movement & was badly injured. Thakur Pratap Singh, a businessman carried on illegal business with duplicate currency with the help of Don (Prem Chopra). Master Dinanath got the job of a kerosene merchant and supplied kerosene at Bharat Nagar. There were others like Samsher Singh (Shammi Kapoor) the owner of a motel, country liquer supplier, Puttu Anna( Prem Nath) owner of tea snacks bar, Ghosh Babu (Uttam Kumar) a grain merchant & Gulam Ali( Parikshit Sahani) a shopkeeper and tea supplier. They were all accomplices in the illegal business. Master Dinanath on the other hand was an idealist. Raju (Amithabh Bachchan), son of Dinanath & Bharati (Sharmila Tagore) was busy in illegal activities & made easy money. Asha (Hema Malini) was a business partner. When Dinanath objected to the use of his school premises for illegal dealings, Pratap Singh & Sher Singh (Kadar Khan) set fire to Dinanath's house & kidnapped Bharati with her daughter Priti (Parveen Babi). Dinanath thought that his wife and daughter Priti had perished in the fire. Sher Singh tried to force Bharati to marry him. Bharati murdered Sher Singh & handed herself to the police. After coming from jail, Bharti met her family. Deepak (Navin Nischal), the son of Pratap Singh and a sincere police officer & Priti loved each other. At the end justice was meted out and everything ended on a peaceful note.
