When Bhavani attempts to make better the lives of some prostitutes, including Janki and her blind daughter, Gopi, she meets with opposition from a goon named Phatte Dada. She approaches a seemingly corrupt, alcoholic and unkempt Police Inspector Ashutosh Das, who belittles her, but she does find some solace when she seeks the assistance of Purshottam, an aspiring politician, who had been influenced by none other than her dad. Purshottam inducts her in his political party, permits her to run a newspaper publication, as well as instructs criminal code proceedings against Phatte. Then Jayanti identifies Purshottam as her husband's killer and Bhavani's faith in Purshottam and in the Indian judicial system are shaken when she is held liable for defaming Purshottam's name and operating a brothel, her mother is accused of killing her father and is subsequently confined to a mental institute, Gopi is abducted, sexually molested, and killed allegedly by a hoodlum named Abdul Sattar, while Bhavani herself is subsequently arrested by Inspector Zoravar Singh for the murder of Deepali Das, the sister of Ashutosh, and a prostitute by profession.
