After Shahid Khan is exiled for impersonating Sultana Daku and looting British trains, he starts working at Ramadhir Singh’s colliery. His wife dies when he is unable to be her side when she was giving birth to their son, because Ramadhir’s muscleman didn’t grant him a leave. Infuriated, Shahid kills the muscleman, and Ramadhir hires him as his new muscleman. But one day, he overhears Shahid’s plan of taking over the colliery, and so he has him killed in Varanasi. Nasir, Shahid’s cousin, learns that it was Ramadhir who killed Shahid, and so he flees with Shahid’s son, who, years later, sets out to take revenge, and becomes a tough guy everyone fears.
