Raisaheb Surajbhan …
Raisaheb Surajbhan Chaudhary lives a wealthy lifestyle in a palatial mansion with his wife of 30 years, Rajlaxmi, and two sons, Rajkumar, who has been married to Shyama for several years; and Mohankumar who is studying in an out f town college. Surajbhan is disappointed with Rajkumar as he has as yet not produced a heir to his family. To make matters worse Mohan, a devout worshiper of Lord Bajrangbali, has taken a vow of celibacy and refuses to get married. Things change dramatically when a young woman named Neena, along with her son, enters the Chaudhary household claiming that Mohan had married and abandoned her. She goes through a number of medical tests which determine that the child is actually a heir of the Chaudhary family. Now Surajbhan and Rajlaxmi want Mohan and Neena to get officially married, much to Mohan's chagrin. Things get complicated when Surajbhan finds out that the child is actually Rajkumar's, and that Neena may have been pulling wool over all their eyes.

Injured by a Jewish child named Elijah, Brutus has his soldiers arrest him, and ignoring the father, Ezra's pleas, he has Elijah thrown to the lions. Ezra's servant, Emmanuel, breaks into Brutus' mansion and abducts his daughter, Lydia, and takes her to Ezra, so that he could kill her. But a grieving Ezra decides to adopt her and re-names her Hannah. Years later the father and daughter are financially well off but people continue to be oppressed by the Romans. Hannah comes to the assistance of Julius Caesar's heir, Marcus, due to an accident with his chariot, and he is smitten by her despite of his forthcoming marriage to Octavia. Unable to get her out of his mind, he dons a Jewish guise, calls himself Moshe, and dramatically befriends her and Ezra. He turns all his affections on Hannah much to Octavia's displeasure. Caesar wants him to wed but Marcus refuses, and an enraged Caesar gives him time to reconsider. Hoping that Moshe will marry her, Hannah is shocked when she witnesses him refusing Holy offerings and confronts him. It is this confrontation that will involve Ezra - who after some opposition - decides to permit him to marry Hannah - provided Marcus becomes a Jew. The question remains: Will Marcus accept this proposal?

Rajguru (Sohrab Modi) decides that Jhansi should get its proper recognition in history. He comes across a young girl Manu (the young Rani Lakshmibai) played by Baby Shikha. Her father has been hit by a carriage driven by an English driver. She gathers a few children to confront the driver. This and her confrontation with an elephant impresses the Rajguru who takes her in hand, shaping her into becoming a determined leader. He arranges for her, at the age of nine, to marry the much-older ruler of Jhansi, Gangadhar Rao (Mubarak), who is about fifty years, and become Queen. Manu grows up under the expert tutelage of the Rajguru, learning physical combat and political administration. The older Manu now called Lakshmibai gives birth to a boy who dies. She adopts another boy Damodar Rao who the English refuse to accept as the rightful heir. This further sets her against the British. During the uprising of 1857 (1857 Mutiny) she fights against them succumbing to her injuries in the end.
