In a remote region in India there has been a tradition of settling differences by fighting a duel with pistols with only one bullet in each of them. Such was the duel fought by Shankar and Thakur Bhavani Singh, with the latter emerging as the victor. Years later, Bhavani's son, Prithvi, returns from London, meets Shankar's son, Gora and daughter, Tara, befriends them, and eventually both Tara and Prithvi fall in love with each other. When Bhavani finds this out, he forces Prithvi to marry Rajeshwari, a girl from a family background of his choice. Unable to make up his mind, Prithvi ends up marrying both women, leading to Tara giving birth to a son, Pratap. Bhavani is enraged when he learns of this and furiously lashes out at Gora Shankar and his tribe of gypsies slaying Tara and a lot of while having their homes torched. Gora himself is arrested by the police, and sentenced to several years in prison. When he is discharged, he asks Bhavani for a duel, but Prithvi intervenes and is killed. Gora takes Pratap, his grandson, to live with him, while Rajeshwari gives birth to a boy, Ranvir, who is raised and brought up by Bhavani. More than a decade later, Pratap and Ranvir meet as strangers, become friends, only to find out that there is an old score to be settled - which can only be done when they follow the age-old tradition of the duel - resulting in only one man surviving. The question remains, who will survive this time? And, will the cycle of hate and violence continue or will the power of love break this unholy tradition?
