Sahibaan is a romantic drama film from 1993 directed by Ramesh Talwar and produced by Mushir-Riaz. The film stars Rishi Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles. The story is set in a small village in Punjab and follows the life of Sahibaan (Madhuri Dixit), a young and beautiful girl who falls in love with a local boy named Mahendra (Rishi Kapoor). However, Sahibaan's father (Anupam Kher) has already fixed her marriage with another man named Ghazi (Salim Ghouse), who is a wealthy and powerful landlord.

Despite the objections of her father and society, Sahibaan refuses to marry Ghazi and elopes with Mahendra. This leads to a series of unfortunate events that put their love and lives in danger. They are pursued by Ghazi, who is determined to get Sahibaan back at any cost. Meanwhile, Mahendra's father (Suresh Oberoi) is also against their relationship and sees Sahibaan as a threat to their family's honor.

As the story unfolds, Sahibaan and Mahendra face numerous challenges and obstacles in their quest for love and happiness. They encounter deceit, betrayal, and violence, which test their courage and determination. Along the way, they also receive help from some unlikely allies.

Sanjay Dutt plays the character of Lachhi, who is Mahendra's friend and ally. His character provides a comic relief and adds a fun element to the otherwise serious and emotional tone of the film.

The film showcases the beauty and culture of Punjab, with its colourful costumes, lively music, and warm hospitality. The cinematography captures the scenic landscapes and rustic charm of the village, which transports the viewers to a different world.

The performances by the lead actors are commendable, with Madhuri Dixit stealing the show with her grace and charisma. Rishi Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt deliver solid performances, bringing depth and authenticity to their characters.

The music of the film is composed by Shiv-Hari and features some memorable songs, such as "Sahibaan Meri Sahibaan" and "Rab Se Sajan Se Jhoot Nahi Bolna". The lyrics, penned by Anand Bakshi, are romantic and soulful, which add to the film's emotional impact.

Overall, Sahibaan is a heartwarming tale of love and sacrifice that will leave a lasting impression on the viewers. It is a perfect blend of drama, romance, and action, with a touch of comedy. The film has a strong message of standing up for one's beliefs and following one's heart, even if it means going against the norms of society.
