An idealistic journalist, a country in the throes of an election, the forces of conservatism, state cronyism and corruption ranged on one side, a charismatic leader of the people on the other. It is a no holds barred battle. At stake is the country's future and survival. On the run from the police and the conspirators, the journalist Vijay Khanna has to stake his everthing just to remain alive, forget saving the country. Only his lady love, princess Sunita, stands by him and believes in his innocence. Will he be able to stop the conspirators from seizing power? or will the police catch up with him for a murder he did not commit?
