A love-triangle suspense film. The heroine (Aman) is married to a vicious, crippled tyrant (Denzongpa) who is killed in the beginning of the film (shot from the killer’s subjective point of view). The heroine and her secret lover (Khan) are the prime suspects. Their story is shown in flashbacks alternating with the progress of the police investigation. In the end, another man (Nischol) confesses to the crime: the old tyrant had raped the man’s wife and she became a nun.
