The film also stars Sharmila Tagore as Kaloo's love interest, Seema, and Prem Chopra as Ranjeet, the film's antagonist. Set in Mumbai, the film presents the story of a struggling, small-time newspaper, Khabardar, which is owned by a group of friends. They discover an important piece of news, that a wealthy businessman and politician, Seth Dharamdas (Rajan Kapoor) is secretly the kingpin of many illegal activities in the city. The friends want to publish the news to expose Seth Dharamdas, but fear the repercussions of doing so.

Enter Kaloo, who is confident in his skills as an investigative journalist and has a knack for digging up hard-hitting stories. He believes that the truth must be exposed and sets out to publish the story, but his endeavors are met with obstacles. Meanwhile, Seema, a talented journalist, is also determined to prove herself worthy in a male-dominated field, and she teams up with Kaloo to help him uncover the truth.

Throughout the film, Kaloo and Seema face numerous challenges, including threats from Seth Dharamdas and his henchmen. The tension builds up as they dodge danger at every turn, while the power struggle between Seth Dharamdas and the residents of Mumbai unravels.

One of the high points of the movie is its music, composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, with lyrics by Anand Bakshi. The songs "Akele Hain Chale Aao" and "Baith Ja Khadi Ho Ja" are still considered classics and are remembered fondly by fans of Hindi cinema.
