Advocate Durga Prasad was to have received a file from Chote Thakur with regard to a case pending in a Court in Bangalore, India. However, Chote gets killed, he does not receive the file and the Court's decision goes against him. Then he is approached by a former Government Employee, an Inquiry Officer, who claims that he was wrongly dismissed and framed by corrupt Government Officials. Durga Prasad, along with his juniors, Ashok, Ravi and one other, decide to handle his case, however, before even the case could be filed, the Inquiry Officer is killed. An angered Durga is determined to take this matter to Court, but before that could happen, he and his wife, Laxmi, are killed in broad daylight right outside the Courthouse. His Junior, Ashok, promises to avenge their killings and sets about to locate their killers. He finds out that all of them work for Vidhya Sagar, and he goes about killing them one by one. Then the DIG of Police, Jagdish Chaudhary, assigns Police Inspector Vijayalaxmi to apprehend Ashok, not knowing that Vijaya and Ashok are in love with each other. She questions Ashok, but he provides her an alibi for each and every occurrence. But when the Mayor of Bangalore is killed, she catches Ashok red-handed, leaving open the question whether Ashok will be ready to provide an alibi for this death or merely claim that he did not do it. The question remains, if Ashok did not kill the Mayor, then who did?

The film was earlier titled Mera Kartavya. Due to Sanjays time in jail, the producers changed the title to be more positive. Vijeyta was chosen to show more support for Sanjay.

The film started in the early 90s around 1991-1992 when it was under the working title Mera Kartvaya. The film faced production delays, the film was a victim of long term shooting. It was supposed to release in 1994 but was further delayed and didn't see a release till the year 1996. The main reason of further delay was Sanjay's jail period which lasted till 1997. The film release finished in 1996 under the title Vijeta.

Sanjay Dutt had several delayed projects in the mid 90s period and this was one of them. However, this is one of the few Sanjay Dutt films where Dutt did his dubbing in time so Chetan Shashital didn't dub him.

The film was released incomplete due to Sanjay Dutt's imprisonment. The climax scene is ended very abruptly followed by the closing credits.

The film was incomplete mainly because of a rushed climax. The ending was supposed to be filmed in late 1995 but Sanjay Dutt had to go back to prison to serve his sentence and the scene was canceled. The film jumps to credits as soon as the villain dies and Sanjay is seen laughing.
