After Billoo's widowed mother, Kamla, passes away, he goes to live with Parvati and Shankar, and their three children, Ravi, Jyoti and Pinky. Billoo watches as Shankar gets killed by a goon, Than Than Tiwari, and swears to avenge this after fulfilling his responsibility of looking the rest of the family.
