Ram Lakhan is a 1989 Indian Hindi-language action drama film directed by Subhash Ghai, and tells the story of two brothers, Ram and Lakhan, who come from a poor family but have very different personalities. The film features Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor as the titular characters, and also stars Rakhee Gulzar, Madhuri Dixit, Dimple Kapadia, Amrish Puri, Paresh Rawal and Anupam Kher in supporting roles.

The film begins with the introduction of the two brothers, Ram and Lakhan, who are orphaned at a young age and are brought up by their sister-in-law. Ram, the older brother, is an honest and upright police officer, while Lakhan is a street-smart, carefree guy who dreams of becoming a wealthy businessman. Despite their differences, the brothers share a strong bond and are inseparable.

Their lives take a turn when the wealthy and powerful Thakur Bhanu Pratap Singh, played by Amrish Puri, decides to take revenge on Ram for arresting his son, and makes his life miserable. In the meantime, Lakhan falls in love with Radha, played by Madhuri Dixit, who belongs to a wealthy family and is engaged to Thakur's nephew.

As Ram struggles to cope with Thakur's constant threats and Lakhan tries to win Radha's love, the story takes several twists and turns, leading to a shocking climax that changes everything.

One of the most memorable aspects of the film is its music, composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and featuring iconic songs such as "My Name Is Lakhan", "Tere Naam Liya" and "Main Hoon Hero". The film's dialogues, written by Anwar Khan, are also well-known and have become a part of pop culture in India.
