Sharda (Raakhee) vows vengeance when her husband is murdered by his two evil cousins, Bhishamber (Amrish Puri) and Bhanu (Paresh Rawal), and she and her two young sons are thrown out on the street. Those sons grow into the upstanding police officer Ram (Jackie Schroff) and the easily tempted dreamer Lakhan (Anil Kapoor). If the family is to be avenged, Ram will have to lead his brother away from the path of corruption he's strayed onto, and protect him from the influence of Bhanu and Bhishamber. Written by

Nothing great but decent entertainer
7 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Subhash Ghai made several entertainers in 80's, like KARMA(86) and RAM LAKHAN

RAM LAKHAN was nothing new or unique in any sense The story was a mix of DEEWAAR and other films yet the film is entertaining

Anil's LAKHAN character is full of fun and actually is the highlight of the film, the role became damn popular

The movie is a typical revenge story and nothing new yet it's entertaining

The film has several comic scenes from Anupam and Satish who got the best comic award

Direction by Subhash Ghai is decent Music is a highlight, MY NAME IS LAKHAN is very good and was a rage the Madhuri Number front of Jackie is the best

Amongst actors Anil is the highlight of the film and does a great job in his part, this role actually gave him immense fame, popularity and he balances th comedy and serious scenes perfectly Jackie is his usual serious self Madhuri is decent and so is Dimple Amrish Puri overacts, Paresh and Annu are good Raakhee is as usual Gulshan Grover hams in the role that gave him fame Raza Murad is okay
