During that time Kundan (Jeevan) starts Bus services in the Town with the primary goal to remove those Horse Card Riders from the Town to gain more profit.
Shankar (Dilip Kumar), on of the Taange Waalas, complaints for the same. Kundan proposes a race between Tonga (Horse Carting) and Bus and if Taanga wins he would stop bus services in the Town. No one is ready to accept this foolish proposal as no one can think about winning a Horse Carting over a Bus. However, Shankar accept the challenge with the hope that at least he would get an opportunity to prove him moreover if challenge is not accepted life of Horse Cart Riders are going to be hell in future. But ironically no one is going to support him except is love interest Rajni (Vyajayantimala).
