Raja (Mithun) was born and brought-up in Purani Basti, a large group of slum-like tenements in Bombay. Here he has been taught to sell and distribute locally brewed alcohol to all his crippled dad's, Bheema (Om puri), clients. Raja's attempts to educate himself are frustrated by his uncle and the local school-master. Years pass by, Raja has now grown up to be a local gangster and alcoholic. When Inspector Suraj Singh (Sanjay dutt)gets assigned to Purani Basti, he finds out that the entire region is under the control of Nagar (Amrsih puri), a gangster, who has political influence all the way to Delhi. Every attempt to reign in Nagar is frustrated. There is one bright spot though - Suraj's friendship with Raja - which is short-lived when Suraj finds out that Bheema killed his father, Inspector Dharam Verma (Dharmendra). How will this affect Suraj and Raja's friendship? With the two taking it out on each other, this leaves the field clear for Nagar and his gang to carry on doing what they have doing for years.
