Full Plot

Sunita is a young woman who ends up married to the wrong man, Rajan. Thinking that he has conspired with his girlfriend, Monica to murder her, she runs away to find an old friend of her father's in Bangalore who may be able to help. Having no money, the only way she can get there is to join a traveling caravan. The crew of the caravan is Mohan, Mohan's sidekick Johnny, and Mohan's younger brother Monto. Along the way, the caravan crosses paths with a group of gypsies that includes some causal young men. Sunita soon falls in love with Mohan but Nisha is attracted to Mohan and this puts Sunita in danger again to make matters worse Rajan has conducted a manhunt to find Sunita either by hook or by crook. gavin ( Mohandas finds out that his trusted employee, Rajan, has been embezzling money from him. He confronts him, and Rajan attacks him, flinging him out of the window of the multi-storied building. The police think that the death is accidental. This leaves the coast clear for Rajan to wed Mohandas' only distraught daughter, Sunita, which he does. Shortly after the wedding, Sunita finds out the truth, and runs away from Rajan; meets with an accident, and ends up with a band of performing gypsies. She meets caravan van-driver Mohan, and is attracted to him. Sunita does not know that she has put herself in danger again - this time at the hands of knife-thrower, Nisha, who loves Mohan, and will kill anyone who gets in her way. To make matters worse, Rajan has not given up his search for Sunita. rAjOo ( Plot not found
