Set in 1947 during the Partition of India, the film tells the story of a truck driver, Tara Singh (Sunny Deol), a Sikh, who falls in love with a Muslim girl, Sakeena (Amisha Patel), belonging to an aristocratic family.
During the Hindu-Muslim riots that erupted soon after the Partition, Tara saves Sakina from a murderous mob chasing her. Subsequently, Sakena starts living in Tara’s house and the respect culminates into love.
Sakeena and Tara get married and become parents of a baby boy. Their life seems like a bed of roses, till Sakena lays her hands on an old newspaper that has a photograph of her father (Amrish Puri), who she believes had been killed during the riots that took place during the partition.
The father is now the Mayor of Lahore and when Sakeena calls him from the Pakistani Consulate in Delhi, he arranges to fly her to Lahore. But Tara and their son, who are supposed to accompany her to Lahore, are told at the last minute that their visa formalities have not been completed, which compels them to stay back on the Indian soil.
