Synopsis

The story revolves around two brothers, Kishen (Jackie Shroff) and Karan (Anil Kapoor), who have spent their childhood growing up alone on the streets of Mumbai. In order for Karan to have a better upbringing and education, Kishen joins Anna Seth (Nana Patekar). Anna owns an oil factory, but that's a mere prop to cover up his dealings within the underworld. Karan is unaware of the fact that his brother is working for a gang. Inspector Prakash (Anupam Kher), Karan's best friend, is aware of Anna's gang activities and wants to bring him to justice. Anna knows that Karan and Prakash are best friends, so he sets up the murder of Prakash when Prakash and Karan are supposed to meet after Karan's arrival from America. Karan is devastated with the happenings, and is even more shocked to learn that his brother Kishen is a gangster, and that too working for Anna, the man responsible for Prakash's murder. Against Kishen's wishes, he joins Anna's gang and starts tipping off a rival gang. This is revenge for Prakash's death-by playing off one gang against the other, he hopes to exterminate both of them at the same time. In a desperate attempt to get Karan away from it all, Kishen gets him married to Paro. But when the couple are brutally killed on their wedding night, Kishen is out for revenge against Anna Seth.
