Textile factories are brought under administrative control of Mughals leaving their hereditary owners disgruntled. Looming financial ruin forces Maqdoom into exile. His young daughter Intisar is left orphaned as her mother had already expired. Prince Salim, the heir to Mughal throne and jilted lover of Mehar-Un-Nisa exploits her because in a rare coincidence, colour of her eyes is exactly similar to colour of Mehar-Un-Nisa’s eyes. Intisar’s lover Sarju is under trial for killing an officer of Agra Kotwali.
Affluent Jain businessman Veerji Seth is summoned by Salim to finance his army in rebellion against his father Akbar. His most loyal colleagues are killed by Salim.
There are many who are looking for an opportunity to avenge their miseries against Mughal Sultanate but the Sultanate is too powerful to be defeated by a handful of frustrated individuals.
