After the passing of her parents, Mumbai-based Neelam lives a poor lifestyle with her ailing maternal uncle, and is employed as a Typist with Suryakant Ahuja, who wants her for himself. When she refuses, he hires a pimp, Lallan, to coerce her, initially to no avail, but subsequently financial worries, to pay for medicines for her uncle and hospitalized boyfriend, Vikram Malhotra (whose friends gang-raped her), compel her to accept money and become a call-girl. Vikram recovers and relocates to live in London along with his mother, while her uncle passes away. Alone and destitute she is rescued by some slum dwellers and starts to live in a concrete pipe, making a living as a prostitute. She catches the eye of local gangster and extortionist, Anha, and agrees to be his mistress if he stops collecting Haftas from the community. Anha does agree but another extortionist, Dhanna, moves in on this vacated territory. A confrontation ensues and Anha is killed.
