Disco Dancer is a 1982 Indian musical drama film directed by Babbar Subhash and starring Mithun Chakraborty, Kim, and Kalpana Iyer. Set in the world of disco music and dance, it follows a young man named Jimmy, who dreams of becoming a famous disco dancer despite the disapproval of his father. The film begins with a flashback to Jimmy's childhood, where he is shown as a talented dancer performing for his family and friends. His father, however, disapproves of his love for dance and wants him to focus on his studies instead. Jimmy realizes that he cannot pursue his passion for dance in his hometown of Simla and decides to move to Mumbai to become a professional disco dancer.

In Mumbai, Jimmy meets the beautiful Rita, who aspires to become a singer, and the two develop a close friendship. Together, they enter a disco dance competition and win, catching the attention of a wealthy and cunning businessman named Rajesh Oberoi. Rajesh sees potential in Jimmy and offers him a contract to become a famous disco dancer, but Jimmy's success soon begins to overshadow Rajesh's own reputation in the music industry.
