Shivraj who is a very nice and honest man, runs a good business in Bombay city. He is leading a smooth life with his family till he signed a paper of partnership with Purshottam. Purshottam who looks very simple and religious man, is actually a powerful smuggler. Above all, Shivraj being ignorant of his nature gets his daughter engaged with his son.

But if bad luck prevails, it effects the man from all side and it happens with Shivraj. At that time three prisoners run away from the jail and come to his home in disguise of servants with the intention of taking away all his precious jewelleries.

One midnight they get a golden chance to fulfill their desire but suddenly they see Shivraj coming home totally broken down where he narrates the bad tricks of Purshottam to his wife and daughter. He says the now he is bound to obey his every command, because he has been cheated by Purshottam very badly.

While listening his story, all three of them change their hearts and promise within themselves to save him from Purshottam's hands instead of cheating him.

Finally they play a tremendous game with Purshottam and he just looses his balance completely but when Shivraj came to know about it, he just wonders who these three Farishtes are.

Did all three of them get success?
Did Purshottam take revenge with three enemies?
Did Police catch these three prisoners?
Were they really criminals who felt bad to see others in trouble?
If yes, then why did they became criminals?
Who was the responsible for their misdeeds?

The answer of these questions is ..... "HUM FARISHTE NAHIN"
