Storyline

Abused by an oppressive brother-in-law Gajendra (Pran), Ramchandra (Dilip Kumar) runs away from home, and ends up in a small village where he is mistaken for Shyamrao (also Dilip Kumar), and must accept Ganga (Leela Mishra) and his new name or face severe exorcism. Meanwhile, Shyamrao is mistaken for Ramchandra by Anjana (Waheeda Rehman) and her dad (Nazir Hussain). When Gajendra finds out, he is enraged and attempts to beat the stuffing out of the person he thinks is his brother-in-law, but Shyamrao refuses to be abused or beaten, and all of a sudden things start changing in the household as well as in the community. It is not long before Gajendra finds out about the truth, and plans an ugly death for Shyamrao, and all those opposed to him. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A best film that cannot be made again
26 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ram Aur Shyam is a story about two twins.The movie has got enough amount of comedy scenes compared to any other movies. The climax is superb and it is appreciable.A best family story that cannot be made again in Indian cinema.The songs and the dances are very good.Mumtaz had played her role as a simple village girl who loves anything in this world none other than her lover.Waheeda Rehman excels in a lead role.Pran plays a very tough role in this movie as a cunning man who loves only money in this world.A great family show to be watched by all ages of the people.The story of the movie is a great one to watch it.The song "O BAALAM TERE PYAAR KI THANDI" would be one of the best yesteryear songs in the Hindi cinema
