Himmatwala (The Brave) is a 1983 action Hindi film starring Jeetendra and Sridevi. The film is credited with turning actress Sridevi into a star in Hindi cinema. The film was the highest grosser of the year it was released in and declared a blockbuster.
A couple of songs from the film composed by Bappi Lahiri became hugely popular – “Nainon Mein Sapna” (sung by Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar) and “Taki O Taki” ( sung by Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle).
Inspired by the huge success of the film in 1983, Sajid Khan directed a recent remake of the film starring Ajay Devgan. The remake however, released in the year 2013, was a disaster at the box office.
