The orphan Jackie (Shroff) is raised by notorious criminal Pasha (Puri). When Pasha is arrested, he asks Jackie to silence the main prosecution witness, a retired police officer, Mathur (Shammi Kapoor). Jackie kidnaps Radha (Sheshadri), Mathur’s daughter, who then falls in love with him and asks him to give himself up. The obstacles are Mathur, who hates Jackie, and Jackie’s rival (Shakti Kapoor). Jackie has to save both Mathur and Radha from Pasha in the violent climax before he can be forgiven. Ghai’s independent hit marketed its unknown lead, Jackie Shroff, via a major advertising campaign using a series of teaser ads. The film includes several of Ghai’s trade- mark song picturisations in mountainous locales (e.g. Ding-a-dong baby sing-a-song).
