Shankar (Shahrukh Khan) is a mute man, raised by the powerful Raja-Saab (Amrish Puri) who treats him like a slave. The elderly Raja-Saab, who is a ruthless and cruel man with a large appetite for young women, wants to marry Gauri (Madhuri Dixit), a vivacious young girl. Gauri, however, wants to see a picture of her future husband first, so Raja-Saab sends her one of Shankar. Gauri falls instantly in love with him and the wedding proceeds. However, before the ceremony is completed, she discovers that it's not Shankar whom she has married and faints; Raja-Saab orders the priest to continue with ceremony, even though the marriage would be invalid while Gauri is unconscious. Gauri refuses to give Raja-Saab her body, so he imprisons and tortures her. When her brother Ashok (Mohnish Behl) comes to save her, Raja-Saab kills him. Moments before he dies, Ashok makes Shankar promise him to save his sister; Shankar and Gauri, who have already fallen in love by this point, flee Raja's mansion.

After a long chase through the mountains and jungle, Raja-Saab's men manage to capture them. Shankar is beaten and mortally wounded, then left to die in the mountains; Gauri is sold to a brothel. Shankar is found and saved by a mysterious healer, who operates on his throat while he is still unconscious. The healer, who discovers that Shankar is not mute by birth, is able to repair some of the damaged nerves in Shankar's throat, enabling him to speak. Shankar recalls that when he was a boy, two men, greedy for his father's wealth, murdered his parents in front of him; when young Shankar threatened to tell everyone what they did, someone came up from behind him and shoved hot coals into his throat, rendering him mute. Shankar, after recovering from his wounds, seeks revenge on the two men who killed his parents, and in the process discovers that Raja-Saab wwas the person who made him mute and who ordered his parents to be killed. He kills Raja-Saab's two henchmen and finally manages to corner Raja-Saab, whom he kills by setting him on fire.

Gauri, meanwhile, has escaped from the brothel and in the end she and Shankar are reunited.
