Saudagar (Hindi:सौदागर; translation: trader) is a 1991 Bollywood film, directed by Subhash Ghai. It starred two major actors of the Hindi silver screen of yesteryear, Dilip Kumar and Raaj Kumar, in the leading roles. It was the second film in which the two actors came together after the 1959 film Paigham. It also featured the debut performances of Vivek Mushran and Manisha Koirala, the latter of which became a noted Bollywood actress in later years. Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher, Dalip Tahil, Gulshan Grover, Dina Pathak, and Jackie Shroff are also featured in the movie.

This film is not to be confused with another Saudagar (1973 film), unrelated to the 1991 film. This film stars Amitabh Bachchan and Nutan.

The film got director Subhash Ghai his only Filmfare Best Director Award.



Two childhood friends, Veer "Veeru" Singh (Dilip Kumar) and Rajeshwar "Raju" Singh (Raaj Kumar) have become bitter enemies due to the machinations of Chuniya (Puri). So much so, in fact, that they have divided their territories and sworn to kill anyone who crosses the boundary. Against this backdrop, their grandchildren, Vasu (Mushran) and Radha (Koirala) fall in love and meet each other in secret quite frequently. When their romance surfaces, the rivalry between Veeru and Raju is rekindled. The two young lovers are told never to see each other again, on pain of death...


The music for the film was composed by the legendary duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal, and the lyrics were written by another big name in Bollywood, Anand Bakshi. The trio produced several memorable songs for the movie, notably Ilu Ilu, Saudagar Sauda Kar, and Imli Ka Boota.
