Captain Vijay Pal Singh is branded a coward, disgraced, humiliated by society and disowned by his parents for abandoning his ship risking the lives of over 300 passengers. With guilt on his mind and low self-esteem Vijay takes up work as a miner in a coal mine owned by Dhanraj Puri. Puri is a self-senile man who thinks about himself, by endangering the lives of his workers to profit himself and with no benefits or medical facilities for them. Vijay attempts to get rid of his cowardice by saving the lives of his co-workers by the contended wrath of Puri. The same happens when water forces its way into one of the mining tunnel endangering the lives of hundreds of workers; this time Vijay hopes to make it big so that he can be able to put together his life again.

During the making of this film, its said that the makers were not satisfied with the music of the film and they wanted to replac composer rajesh roshan. (they had a hit toghether dosra admi) but lata mangeshkar warned the makers that if they replace rajesh roshan with another composer, she said she wont sing for the makers again. So here the makers dint have a choice they had to listen to lata. Salil chawdry composed the bachgroun music for the film. The makers just had doubts because the music was different and underplayed. Today the songs and music is classic till now people know ek raasta, bahome teri, dhoom mache dhom, mere jhoroko aye baraat etc. Rajesh Roshan wanted to compose for yash chopra other film Trishul, but yash told raju to compose for Kaala Patthar, it will be a challenge, yash chopra suggested to rajesh roshan.
