Shambunath (Amrish Puri), a good Samaritan, freedom fighter and social worker, commands great respect in the town; to the extent that the locals do not even want to name their offspring without his blessings and consent.
On his part, Shambunath also loves the townsfolk as his own children; advising, counseling and admonishing them -- all for their own good. But the person most dear to him is Kashi.
A young, strong and handsome lad, Kashinath too adores his foster father more than anybody else in the world. The father and son duo share a very special relationship.
When the local vaid advises Kashinath to take his ailing father to Bombay for medical treatment, he is overjoyed. He goes about ecstatically telling everybody in town about his leaving to the city of his dreams, where he is sure he would make it big some day. Besides, he would also be meeting his brother Shiv (K.K. Raina), Shambunath's real son, who lives in Bombay with his family.
On their arrival, the father and son are baffled by the eerie and stony silence in the locality where Shiv resides. And gradually, their myths about the city, where everything is supposed to be within the realm of possibility, are rudely shattered. The doctor diagnoses Shambunath's disease as cancer in the advanced stage, and says there is little that can be done about it at such a late stage.
Kashi also realizes that the existence of his brother and the fellow shopkeepers depends on the mercy of the blood-thirsty Katiya and his brothers, who have unleashed a reign of terror to grab their land by hook or crook. His dreams turn into a nightmare!
However, for Kashi, the only silver lining is Gauri (Meenakshi Sheshadri) who understands his problems and is the only solace during his depressing and difficult moments.
The heartless Katiya with the help of his notorious brothers heaps atrocities on the hapless people, and Shiv too becomes a victim of it. It is then that the simple-hearted and undersigning Kashi realizes that things have actually reached a point of no return.
Kashi embraces violence to eliminate Katiya and his brother one-day-one.
And, Kashi had his reasons for choosing this lethal path!
Could he forget the humiliation of his father at the hands of the hardhearted Katiya, who forced him to come down on all fours and bark like a dog.
The cold-blooded killing of his brother and other people in the locality.
In the deadly fight that ensues between Kashi and Katiya, the latter's entire family is wiped out before the axe finally falls on Katiya's head.
