The story is about two criminals Veeru (Dharmendra) and Jai (Amitabh Bachchan). Both are hired by a retired police officer Thakur ( Sanjeev Kumar) to help him to capture a ruthless uncouth dacoit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan) who has created a havoc in the Ramgarh village by terrorizing with his presence.

The police inspector has kept a huge sum for a reward for this task. Gabbar Singh who has taken his revenge on the police inspector by cutting of both his hands and also killing his only son leaving his young daughter-in-law Radha (Jaya Bhaduri), widowed.
