The plot revolves around an abandoned child named Raju or Vikram, played by Akshaye Khanna. He is left to fend for himself as a young boy in a city train station. An old man named Ganpat, played by Om Puri, takes him in and raises him as his own. Ganpat sells tea on the platform and scrounges food from leftover plates. Raju learns the tricks of the trade and becomes a hustler himself, stealing from passengers and bribing railway officials.

Raju, now a young man, gets into a fight with a local goon, leading to his arrest by the police. In jail, he meets an elderly man who advises him to turn his life around and become a law-abiding citizen. Raju takes this advice to heart and decides to become a lawyer.

He works hard to pass his exams, and soon he graduates with a degree in law. He sets up a practice in the city and takes on cases where justice is not being served. He quickly becomes known for his skills in the courtroom.
