‘DON’ was a dangerous, cunning, fearless criminal – ‘DON’ was wanted by the Police of ELEVEN countries, but he used to slip out of the clutches of LAW like a wisp of breeze.  DSP Mr. D’ Silva, the much respected police officer of Bombay had set his mind to catch ‘DON’ at any cost. 

‘ROMA’ was also bent upon catching ‘DON’. ‘ROMA’ whose brother was killed by him. She was expert in KARATE and JUDO. She was anxious to know the whereabouts of ‘DON’ and his gang. BUT the only person who had this information, was named ‘JASJEET’, the famous Trapze artist of his days in Circus, but as fate would have it, these days he was forced to walk on CRUTCHES. He was also burning with hatred and revenge – not for ‘DON’ – his target was DSP D’ Silva and one day they both came face to face with each other – JASJEET had a gun in his hand and his eyes were full of hatred – And one day ‘ROMA’ also reaches ‘DON’ – She joined his gang and now was in a position to take revenge of her brother’s death at her will – and one day DSP D’ Silva got hold of ‘VIJAY’ – Who was this ‘VIJAY’ – What connection he had with ‘DON’ – And how he helped the LAW against ‘DON’ and his gang of smugglers – SEE all this in NARIMAN FILMS SUPPER HIT FILM ‘DON’.
