Rajnikanth, Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Hasan star in this classic tale of the clash of money and innocence, Kishen (Kamal Hasan) and Karan Khanna (Amitabh Bachchan), are two brothers separated at birth, when their father Kapil (Kadar Khan), a security officer, is killed by a pair of dangerous smugglers, Ranjit (Ranjit) and Vedant (Shakti Kapoor). Kishen falls in love with a girl (Poonam Dhillon) and is devastated to discover that her brother is none other than his old enemy Ranjit. Ranjit now frames Kishen for a murder.

Meanwhile Karan falls foul of the law when his best friend, a police officer, Hussain (Rajnikanth) is killed in an encounter and Karan decides to seek revenge. Here he comes up against police officer Geeta (Madhavi), with whom he falls in love. How the two brothers find justice and reunite their scattered family, makes up the plot of this thrilling drama. The film is directed by Prayaag Raj and has music by Bappi Lahiri. Hit songs include 'Dhoop Mein Nikla' and 'Aana Jaana'.
