An institution for the handicapped is run on land belonging to a rich, but disinterested landlord. The landlord has two sons. The older Ramu is arrogant while the younger one is lame. After Ramu is defeated in a football match by a crippled inmate Ravi, he takes revenge by evicting the institution inmates from their property. To add to his woes, the homeless Ravi is kidnapped by gangsters who want to use him as a beggar. With nothing going his way, can Ravi save himself? Will the rich landlord see the error of his ways and reinstate the institution? As Ravi proves, some people may be disabled, but they are no less than others.
