The protagonist of the film is Romeo (Vikram Singh), who is in love with Shalu (Rinku Ghosh), an exotic dancer. He visits the pub where she works which gets raided by the police. He is arrested for possession of a firearm. The gun was handed to him seconds before the raid began by the character Manoj Masti Bhai (manoj Joshi).
Romeo becomes the victim of police brutality in prison. Angered by his mistreatment, he swears vengeance and, upon his release, solicits the help of Mumbai underworld don Vijay Bhaichara (Govind Namdeo) so as to kill Masti Bhai. The law, represented by encounter specialist Anjali (Seema Biswas) is on to grab the killer. Meanwhile, Romeo is getting in deeper with the criminal world in Mumbai. He forms a gang with Shalu and Vijay Bhaichara. Vijay has a falling-out with Romeo after Romeo kills a wealthy businessman named Naresh Jindal without informing Vijay.
An enraged Vijay becomes Romeos arch rival. He sides with Inspector Anjali to finish Romeo in an encounter. One by one, Romeos associates and friends are killed.
Eventually, Romeo decides to abandon his life of crime and start anew. However, his past catches up with him.Romeo is involved in an altercation with the law in which he is shot 6 times, but somehow survives.
The film was reviewed by Indian film critic Taran Adarsh. He did not have a very positive opinion of it, calling it a "dull fare". He wrote that the films plotline was formulaic, and based on a premise that has been done many times before in Indian cinema. He does express some measure of admiration for Seema Biswass character.
