Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (1994)
Summary:Prem and Nisha meet and fall in love at the wedding of their elder siblings, but their plans to be together are put in jeopardy
Starring Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan, it celebrates Indian wedding traditions by relating to the story of a married couple and the relationship between their families; a story about sacrificing ones love for ones family. It is a remake of the studio’s own film Nadiya Ke Paar (1982).
Earning over INR1.35 billion (US$21 million) worldwide, the film became the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time. It contributed to a change in the Indian film industry, with new methods of distribution and a turn towards less violent stories. It was the first Hindi film to gross over INR1 billion, and when adjusted for inflation, it is still one of the highest-earning Bollywood films ever. Box Office India described it as “the biggest blockbuster of the modern era.”1
