Ghulam (Hindi: ग़ुलाम, Urdu: غلام, translation: Slave) is a 1998 Bollywood film directed by Vikram Bhatt. The movie was a homage to the Hollywood film On the Waterfront.[1]



Siddharth (Aamir Khan) is a Mumbai tapori, a boxing champion. His brother, Jai, makes money through a former boxing champion who now rules the community through terrorizing people and stealing money from innocent merchants. Siddharth saw his father's death when he was a child; this mentally effected him throughout his life. His father's words remained with him, though he had only been with his father for a little while. Siddharth meets a young woman, Alisha (Rani Mukerji) who rides with a motorcycle gang and Charlie (Deepak Tijori). This is a flavor for some comedy and a brilliant scene in which Siddharth is running towards a train and as the train is only a few feet away he jumps out of the way.

Siddharth and Alisha meet for the first time and fall in love, and the typical love story follows. Siddharth meets another person who reminds him of his father, Hari. He learns a bit more from this man of wisdom and helps him in his truth. How he does this and the how the message of Hari and his father is carried out is what the movie tries to convey.

Box Office

The movie was a box office sucess. This movie along with film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was instrumental in the rise of actor Rani Mukerji's stardom in bollywood.

  • Rani Mukerji became known as the "Khandala Girl" after the hit song "Aati Kya Khandala". [1]
  • This was the only movie in which Rani Mukerji's voice was dubbed.[citation needed]
  • Rani Mukerji's role was first offered to Pooja Bhatt.[2]
  • Adapted from Marlon Brando starrer On the Waterfront.
  • A sequence in the film shows Aamir Khan running on rail tracks towards an oncoming train, which misses him by a few feet as he jumps off the tracks. 1.3 seconds was the only difference between Aamir and the train. This stunt was actually performed, and by Aamir himself. It won him the Best Stunt award, but he later criticized himself for taking such an unnecessary risk. [3]
