A young teacher challenges the power structure built on corruption. Kumar (Nana Patekar) is the young teacher who teaches in school. Prerna (Smita Patil) is the only daughter of the headmaster of the school. She gets attracted to Kumar as she is admiring his courage to fight with the Zamindar – the collector Sahibrao Patil (Girish Karnad) of that village is cruel and often plays politics in the name of his power and status. Due to his this attitude, many people are not given justice. Kumar starts to build his own campaign and successfully gets elected in elections against that Zamindar. But once in power, the people who elect him find that they have no hold on him. He keeps himself busy with his new found duties. Slowly, Prerna and the associates of Kumar find a change in him. The agendas, the promises are all forgotten. He is fast becoming the man she was supposed to hate the most, the former collector.
