The story revolves around the egoistic ambitions of a singer, which is presented on the backdrop of two musical gharanas of Indian classical music represented by Pandit Bhanu Shankar Shastri (Mahadevan) and Khansaheb (Pilgaonkar).

Living in a princely state of Vishrampur, Khansaheb is unable to defeat Panditji in the annual singing competition arranged by the Maharaja of the state. But Khansaheb continues to challenge Panditji until fourteen years later when Panditji leaves the stage without singing. Khansaheb thus becomes the winner and is given the status of royal singer. The king also presents Khansaheb with a dagger (Katyar) and proclaims that the state would pardon one murder if committed by the royal singer with this dagger in self-defense. In the meantime Uma (Mrunmayi Deshpande) packs her things and leaves the haveli when the royal attendants, along with the royal poet Banke Bihari, arrive to take charge of the Mansion. Khansaheb moves to the haveli with his daughter Zareena. They come to know that Panditji has left the state without informing anyone, not even his daughter Uma.

Sadashiv (Subodh Bhave) arrives at the haveli to learn music from Panditji, with whom he had childhood associations of music. All these years, Sadashiv hadn't been able to pursue music due to his family conditions. He is disappointed to learn that Panditji has given up singing and is nowhere to be found. Khansaheb gets insecure on listening Sadashiv's rendition of Panditji's song, and throws him out. However, Sadashiv learns from Khansaheb's daughter Zareena about Panditji's daughter Uma. Sadashiv then locates Uma and learns the truth about Panditji's renunciation of music. The British officer, with his typical penchant for treachery, convinces Khansaheb's wife to poison Panditji to enable Khansaheb to win the coveted competition.

In a fit of fury, Sadashiv enters Khansaheb's mansion with the intention of murdering him. However, Zarena dissuades him and challenges him to take revenge on Khansaheb by singing better than him. Sadashiv then starts learning music from Uma through Panditji's book, which was written before his departure. Later they meet Panditji at a temple festival and bring him home. Panditji asks Sadashiv to learn from Khansaheb.

One day, Khansaheb is performing in a local program where Sadashiv listens in disguise. However, Sadashiv suddenly breaks out in a song and when challenged, wagers to out-do the Khan. Sadashiv loses, and as per the terms of the challenge, becomes a slave of Khansaheb and gets his voice bound over to Khansaheb. Now he cannot sing without the permission of Khan. Zareena sees the unfairness in all this arrangement and blackmails Khansaab into returning Sadashiv's voice by threatening to expose him in court.

Then Sadashiv challenges the Khan in the annual competition — what follows is the essence of Indian philosophy of music.
