Trivia

Madhuri Dixit had many flops during her early career when she met her on sets of Karma 1986 where she was shooting for her film Aawara Baap 1985.Subash Ghai offered her a dance number in Karma 1986 which got edited out so he decided to do her grand launch with Ram Lakhan 1989 but destiny had something different for Madhuri Dixit as Tezaab 1988 released first and she became an overnight star.

A Subhash Ghai classic
7 April 2006 | by shashikrishnaSee all my reviews

One of Bollywood's classics from the apt hands of Subhash Ghai, 'Ram Lakhan' tells the tale of two brothers Ram and Lakhan. Typical to its masala-based Bollywood style entertainment this movie has it all - romance, action, revenge, emotional quotient, music (a major plus point for Ghai for roping in seasoned Laxmikant Pyarelal duo) and the very vital entertainment factor that worked so well back then and still does.

Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor give extremely competent performances cast opposite Dimple Kapadia and Madhuri Dixit respectively. Rakhee Gulzar plays the mother who waits eagerly to avenge her husband's unjust death. A complete family entertainer, 'Ram Lakhan' is a Subhash Ghai classic.

A must watch.
