There were two partners of a Hotel in Rangoon. While Jamna Dass was away, his partner Ram Lal was murdered. Jamna Dass dashed to Bombay where his daughter Nimmo has already gone. He made out a new will assigning the property to his daughter. He rang up Ashok to meet him. As he finished, he found his arrogant brother Jeevan face to face. An altercation; then a scuffle and last a gun fire sound and there lay Jamna Dass dead.

Mr. Singh, his secretary, appeared on the scene with a tape recorder in his head. A drama of black-mail starts. Both escape to Rangoon. Ashok comes over there and finds Jamna Dass dead. Frightened, he runs away. Soon, thereafter, Nimmo is kidnapped from her Hotel Room. Ashok & Murli fly to Rangoon after the culprits.
