Storyline

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.

a fallen legend
28 December 2006 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

whatever happened to the legend who gave us masterpieces like Karz, Hero, Vidhataa??, even Raam Lakhan, Meri Jung, Karma, Sadaagar was quality fare, his decline started with Pardes, got worse with Taal & he became downright mediocre with Yaadein, a total insult to anyones intelligence, to make matters worse, he came up with Kisna after this, lets not even go there.

anyways, back to Raam Lakhan, this was a lot of fun, i remember as teenager, we began worshiping anil after this & tezaab, every boy in school had a fringe just like him. he was phenomenal as lakhan. Jackie was passable as his brother & anupam hilarious. Madhur became everyones fantasy after this.Sigh...the good old days.
