Anil Kapoor's blockbuster Ram Lakhan turns 33 today

Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor was undoubtedly the blockbuster king of the 80-90s Indian cinema. Every drama he headlined broke the box office records to become a massive success. One such film that, to date, is counted amongst the iconic ones is Ram Lakhan.

Released today, 33 years ago, Kapoor's Ram Lakhan earned acclaim right off the bat. From a taut storyline to vibrant performances to a memorable music album, the film had everything that represents the Indian culture of cinema. The timeless star took the audience on a hero's journey in which two brothers (Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff) take revenge against evil.

Apart from making an indelible mark on the audience with his performance, Kapoor's music video My Name Is Lakhan, among others, still holds the same command over the viewers.

Directed by Subhash Ghai, the iconic Ram Lakhan had a terrific ensemble of cast, including Dimple Kapadia, Saeed Jaffery, Amrish Puri, Anu Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Raza Murad, Anupam Kher and Satish Kaushik.
