Arvind Desai (Dilip Dhawan) is the only son of a rich businessman (Shriram Lagoo) who deals in luxury handicrafts and products. His feelings for his father are mixed. While he hates his dominating nature, he admires his power and lack of scruples. He has long discussions on art and politics with a Marxist friend (Om Puri), is seeing his father's secretary, Alice (Anjali Paigankar) and sometimes he visits a prostitute, Fatima. Much against his wishes, his marriage is arranged to a girl from a high-class family that has just returned from Paris much to Alice's mother dismay who realizes that Alice was time-pass for Arvind and nothing more.
