The story of Amaanat revolves around a middle-class family headed by Ravi Khanna (Manoj Kumar). Ravi is an honest and hard-working man who lives with his wife Sarita (Sadhana Shivdasani) and their children. Ravi's life takes a turn when he witnesses the murder of a man and decides to testify against the accused in court. The accused is a powerful and influential businessman named J.B. Mangal (Balraj Sahni), who uses his wealth and power to manipulate the legal system and get away with his crimes.
