Storyline: Born in an orphanage Yeshwant lives a middle-class lifestyle in Mumbai, India, along with his wife, Ragini. He works as a Police Inspector while Ragini is an I.A.S. student. Yeshwant’s honesty and diligence only gets him suspended with half-pay, and he has his lawyer friend, Vikram, assist him. Even while the Enquiry Commission is investigating his conduct, he is arrested by Inspector Joshi for killing a man, which gets him 10 years in prison. Vikram, however, appeals and a higher court overturns this conviction. An embittered Yeshwant returns to work only to find that his wife, now the Deputy Collector, is having a much-publicized affair with her body-guard, Police Inspector John Frank, who was her fellow collegian. Distracted from chasing criminals, Yeshwant has only one objective now – confront Ragini and kill John Frank – by hook or by crook, while his opponents, which include Salim Sheikh and the State Chief Minister Virendra Deshmukh, are busy plotting his demise.
Inspector Yeshwant Lohar (Nana Patekar) is a plainclothes police detective. His wife Ragini (Madhoo) is illiterate; Yeshwant wants her to learn to read so that she may join the Indian Administrative Service (IAS).
Yeshwant goes undercover as a beggar to catch a drug dealer, Salim (Mohan Joshi). Salim is sent to prison and Lohar is ostensibly praised by his superior Chopra. However, Chopra is corrupt, and in actuality is Salim’s pay. Chopra frames Lohar for murder and gets him sent to prison as well.
Meanwhile, Ragini joins the IAS as a police officer, and is assigned to Yeshwant’s former station. She suspects Chopra of framing her husband, and lets Chopra know that she is watching him closely. Chopra becomes alarmed and tries silence to Ragini. She rejects his bribe offers and escapes the thugs hired by Chopra to intimidate her.
Chopra plots to defame Ragini. She has been attacked, so he assigns Atul (Atul Agnihotri), an old friend of Ragini, as her police guard. Chopra then spreads allegations of a love affair between them, supported by faked pictures of Atul and Ragini in a compromising position.The minister who is a womaniser, scolds her and also tries to hug her. Chopra shows the pictures to Yeshwant, who avoids Ragini during conjugal visits, and releases them to the press, discrediting her with the public.
Yeshwant is released from prison, and confronts Ragini. She pleads with him to believe she is faithful. Yeshwant is enraged, and goes on a killing spree. He kills Chopra’s accomplices, and then kills Chopra himself while he is engaged in an illegal drug deal. With Chopra’s crimes revealed, Yeshwant is vindicated.
