"Raju" Khanna lives with his elderly father, Nihalchand, mom, and a
younger sister. He studies Arts in college, and has a sweetheart in
fellow-collegian, Neena Bakshi. When Rajan graduates, his father wants him to
work at the very same firm he is employed in, but Rajan wants to join the
military. His father opposes this, has a heart attack, and Rajan accepts the
job offer, and goes to work in his father's office. He does not do too well,
his father passes away, and he joins the military. When he returns, nothing
is the same anymore, Neena is engaged to be married to a rich and handsome
young doctor, and her dad refuses to even consider Rajan as his son-in-law.
Disheartened, he returns back to the military, into the war zone. Then he
volunteers to rescue a senior military officer, does get through enemy lines,
and finds out to his shock that the senior military officer is none other
than Major Bakshi. Both Bakshi and Rajan know that it will only be one of
them who can make it safely back to their base.
