Prithviraj Chauhan conquers Delhi after humbling Mughal ruler Mohommad Ghori, who pleads for mercy and is permitted to leave. He then permits Gujarat's Rajnartaki, Karnataki, to live honorably in his region. When his Pradhan Mantri spends his time wooing her, he first warns him, but when the former attempts to molest her, he kills him. When he is told that Rajkumari Sanyukta, the daughter of Raja Jaychand Rathaur loves him, but is prevented by her father, who not only refuses to invite Prithviraj for the Swayamwar, but humiliates him by erecting his statue as a gatekeeper. Sanyukta is then asked to pick her future husband and she garlands the statue, Prithviraj shows up and both elope. An enraged Jaychand forms an alliance with the latter's enemies and rivals, including a vengeance-seeking Ghori and they prepare to attack Delhi. Prithviraj, who ends up spending a lot of his time with his new bride, eventually rallies his army, and firmly believes that Hindustan's enemies are not foreigners but it's very own people - not knowing how close he is to the truth and to the deception and treachery that await him.
