Staying in Pune, Dinanath, a retired service person has two sons - Rajeev (Raj Babbar) an engineer by profession, calm, understanding and aiming to achieve something very big, and the second son Sanjeev (Sunjay Dutt), a car mechanic with bad habits like drinking and smoking. But due to this nobody likes him or has any respect for him. Sanjeev however is very caring and kind. Dinanath has one daughter, Payal whose aim is to land up in films. Dinanath also has one sister Kalavati (who is a widow) who stays with them. Kalavati constantly supports Rajeev and discourages Sanjeev, leading to constant fights in the house. One day while saving his sister Payal from Premnath (Ramesh Deo), Sanjeev lands in the lock up. When Sanjeev comes back to house, he is asked to leave house by Rajeev without actually knowing the reason. Sanjeev comes to Mumbai in search of job. He works in the bakery of Chandulal (Madan Puri). Sanjeev saves Chandulal's niece Bela (Jaya Prada) from Kundan (Shakti Kapoor). Bela starts liking Sanjeev. But Sanjeev loves Archana (Rati Agnihotri), a daughter of rich person Ganga Prasad whom he met in Panchangani. Even Archana loves Sanjeev. One day in the absence of Chandulal, Bela calls Sanjeev to her room, but Chandulal sees this and kicks Sanjeev out, but Bela accept her mistake and starts loving Sanjeev more. This causes a heart attack to Chandulal and he dies. In the meantime Rajeev gets a job in Ganga Prasad's company and increases in status day by day. Ganga Prasad is so impressed by Rajeev, he offers him to be his son-in-law. Rajeev doesn't disclose that he has a brother like Sanjeev. After the job in the bakery, Sanjeev gets a job as taxi driver, where he accidentally meets Rajeev, and comes to know about Rajeev and Archana's marriage. For his brother, Sanjeev sacrifices his love and marries Bela. Also Archana marries Rajeev. But after marriage, Rajeev encounters kidney failure, for him, the kidney has to come from a relative and it matches with Sanjeev. Unknowingly Sanjeev donates his kidney to Rajeev. This acts as eye opener for Rajeev who know starts believing relations more than money. Archana also comes to know about Sanjeev’s sacrifice. When she tries to meet Sanjeev, she is abducted by Kundan, who tries to rape her, but Sanjeev saves her and in the fight loses his life. Later Rajeev comes to know about Sanjeev's greatness and he accepts his guilt. Bela, while delivering a child, dies. The son is adopted by Rajeev and Archana whom they name Sanjeev and Rajeev promises to give him all the love which he could not give to Sanjeev.
