The British soldiers would normally come over to India and loot all its wealth and carry it over to there country. But once in a time they were all challenge by a king called Azad Singh, and caught and carry to Lady Elena but they all attack King Azad behind his back and he was wounded and treated by Dr. Harry (Prem Chopra) but Dr. Harry turn out to be a British employer despite being an Indian and decided to attack King Azad and his family which consist of his wife and baby son. And so the son was separated from mother and father at a very young age. He was grown up by a horse and dog and was named Raju Singh/Mard (Amitabh Batchchan) which took him one day to the enemy's/British house and daughter named Ruby (Amrita Singh) Dr. Harry's house where he will have to challenge and fight with his father to impress the British and also made a plan which will help him and his father outwit the British.
