The title character Veer belongs to the Pindhari tribe, which Mithun Chakraborty's character heads. The tribe has vowed to avenge a deception that cost them their land and reputation, forcing them to always be on the run.
Jackie Shroff puts in an appearance in the film too, as the Raja of Madhavgarh. He cheats the Pindharis to please the British but looses his arm in the bargain. He thirsts for revenge and decides to hunt down the Pindharis, little realising that his own daughter is in love with someone from the Pindhari tribe.
