Satya is the story of a man who comes to Mumbai to make a living. A series of
incidents put him in jail where he meets and becomes close to a gangster Bheeku
Mhatre (Manoj Bajpai). Once out of prison, Bheeku initiates him into the gang
and gives him a place to live in. Opposite this apartment, Vidya (Urmila
Matondkar), a struggling singer, lives with her aged parents. A relationship
between Satya (J. D. Chakravarthy) and Vidya develops alongside his rise in the
underworld. Of the latter fact however, Vidya is completely unaware.
