Vishal (Rishi Kapoor)
comes from a wealthy Hindu family. His father is well known Chandraprakash
Singh (Amrish Puri), and his mom is a housewife, Sharda (Asha Parekh). Vishal
falls in love with a young Catholic girl, Ruby Miranda (Farha). While Ruby's
dad (Alok Nath) approves of the marriage, Chandraprakash does not, and will
not even hear of his son marrying someone not of equal status in wealth,
leave alone a different religion. He is all the more enraged when he learns
that Vishal is not really his son.
