Dimpy Singh (Madalsa Sharma), approaches Samrat Tilakdhari (Rajeev Khandelwal), a private investigator, with a strange case. Their garden was ruined for unknown, but apparently natural reasons; leading horticulturists have examined the fading plants but they have not been able to identify the probable reason. Further, her father’s favorite horse died prematurely; once again the cause is unknown. Furthermore, the health of Dimpy’s father Mahendra Pratap Singh (Girish Karnad), otherwise a strong and balanced man, has deteriorated. These possibly related problems prompt Samrat’s curiosity.
Samrat along with his assistant friend, Chakradhar Pandey (Gopal Dutt), visits the huge estate of Mahendra Pratap Singh. As he starts investigating, he discovers many mysterious facts. The story progresses when a murder takes place in the house, which leads to a series of events, complicating things for Samrat. Every character around seems to be hiding something. Then Anuj is found killed.
Dimpy is stuck in a brakeless car when Samrat saves her life. Doubt hovers around Mrs. Dave as Samrat learns she is a college friend of Mahendra Pratap. But she is innocent as she played pranks on Mahendra just as a sweet revenge for his college days. She reveals a college secret to Samrat: She had broken her legs due to a small prank played by Mahendra in their college days. And she proves her innocence.
Samrat then focuses on other characters. Sanjay is the killer. He is son of Mahendra Pratap’s first wife and wanted to revenge his father as he holds his father responsible for his mother’s death.
