Abducted at a young age, Shama is sold to Asgharibai, is re-named Surajmukhi, and grows up to be a well-known Courtesan. When Yuvraaj Singh, his uncle, and brothers attempt to molest her, a bandit, Sultan Singh, comes to her rescue, steals all the jewelry from the Singhs and gives them to her. The Singhs then complain to the police, who assign this matter to Inspector Dildaar Dawood, who, in turn, posts a hefty reward for Sultan's arrest. Surajmukhi openly performs a prayer for Sultan's well-being, donates the stolen jewelry, and is subsequently arrested. Sultan rescues her, and when she is molested by Lohari, he marries her. She subsequently gives birth to Munni, and manages to persuade Sultan to surrender to the police, Sultan agrees to do so, but is gunned down. Taking advantage of this opportunity, Lohari and Yuvraaj abducts Munni and Surajmukhi respectively. With Sultan dead, who will come to Surajmukhi and Munni's rescue?
