Nishchaiy (Prime Video)

But Ravi can't seem to track down his brother following his release.

Andaz Apna Apna (Prime Video)

Rajkumar Santoshi directed Vinay Kumar Sinha's romantic comedy Andaz Apna Apna in 1994. Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon, Karisma Kapoor, Paresh Rawal (dual role), and Shakti Kapoor fill the leading roles. The film became a cult classic despite its poor box-office performance. Andaz Apna Apna's vocabulary has entered common parlance.

Two suitors, Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan), fall in love and must protect an heiress from a villain as they vie for her hand in marriage. Two dreamers, Amar (Aamir Khan) and Prem (Salman Khan), have a shared goal: to become wealthy by marrying Raveena Bajaj (Raveena Tandon/Karisma Kapoor), the daughter of Ram Gopal Bajaj (Paresh Rawal), an heiress. After meeting on the bus, the boys quickly learn they're working towards the same objective. In their several efforts to win over the woman, the two fall flat.

Sajid Nadiadwala, under Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, produced the 1996 romantic action film Jeet, while Raj Kanwar wrote and directed it. Tabu, Amrish Puri, Karisma Kapoor, Sunny Deol, and Salman Khan are the film's stars.

Despite receiving an order to kill a professor (Alok Nath), a criminal (Sunny Deol) finds affection for the professor's daughter (Karisma Kapoor).

Raja and Prem, who are identical twins in the amusing story of Judwaa, grow up in quite different environments due to their separation at birth.

Roopali (Sushmita), a stunning model, enters Prem's life to help him cope with his fluctuating hormones. Prancing about town with Roopali is just one part of Prem's double existence as a loving spouse and doting father. And on top of all that, Prem and his wife are good friends with Lakhan (Anil) and his wife (Tabu). Pooja issues an ultimatum to Prem shortly after she learns of his love. Would Prem choose Pooja? Should he instead reach an agreement with Roopali?

Vivek (Mohnish), Prem (Salman), and Vinod (Saif) are the sons of Ramkishen (Alok) and Mamta (Reema). In order to protect her own sons, Mamta hardens her feelings for Vivek, who is her stepson, and he obediently accepts her decision.
