Chandan (clean shaven Mithun Chakraborty) lives in a small village with his mom (Dina Pathak) and sister Sona. He earns his living driving a horse driven carriage. His lady love is the beautiful Roopa (Rati Agnihotri). Roopa has admirers like Bhola (Jagdeep), who will go to any extent to win her heart. On the other hand there is Trishul Singh, (also Mithun) who is a dacoit with a big moustache, is out to loot and kill for the sake of money. Unknowingly he also loots the house of his mother (Dina Pathak), and he does not know that Chandan is his twin brother. He frequents the house of a dancer Kamobai (Surinder Kaur). One day he comes across a seriously injured Chandan and is shocked to find the resemblance. He quickly takes advantage and assumes Chandan's identity, faking Chandan as dead, he goes to live with Sona and Chandan's mom. He hopes that the police inspector assigned to his case (Viju Khote) will conclude that Trishul Singh is dead when they find Chandan's body. In this way he hopes to elude the police and start his life afresh. But his plans are foiled as Chandan is still alive and mistaken by his gang of dacoits as Trishul Singh. However, Chandan is timid and not cut out to be a cutthroat dacoit like his twin, and it will not be long before the gang finds out that something is wrong, and they may possibly take advantage of Chandan's good-nature for their own greed and gain.
