Synopsis

Vijay (Amitabh Bachhan) is the illegitimate son of a construction baron Raj Kumar Gupta (Sanjeev Kumar) and his first love Shanti (Waheeda Rehman), whom he gives up to marry a wealthy heiress. Shanti comes by to wish him success on his marriage, with the news that she is carrying his child and moving away. She gives birth to son Vijay and raises him into adulthood. After she dies, Vijay comes to Delhi to take revenge by destroying his father's business and family connections. Shashi Kapoor and Poonam Dhillon play his half-siblings who are caught in the crossfire of Vijay's revenge.

Vijay also crosses paths with Raakhee, the devoted secretary of Sanjeev Kumar and rival company president Hema Malini.
