Raj (Aamir) and Juhi (Rashmi)

Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak was one of the greatest hits of the 1980’s. This romantic drama was released in 1988 and stars Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla. Aamir khan became a craze after this movie was released and he got the ‘ Chocolate Boy ‘ tag .  Most of the songs in the movie  are fabulous. ‘ Papa Kehte hain ‘ became a super hit song of those times.

The story goes like this

Thakur Jaswant Singh (Alok Nath) and Dhanraj Singh (Dilip Tahil) are brothers who stay in a village called Dhanakpur. They have a sister Madhumati who gets pregnant and ditched by Ratan Singh. Jaswant Singh goes to Ratan’s family and meets Thakur Raghuveer Singh and  pleads to accept her into the family. They reject the proposal and both the families become staunch enemies. Dejected Madhumati commits suicide. With frustration Dhanraj kills Ratan on his wedding day. He’s imprisioned. Jaswant moves to Delhi with Dhanraj’s kids. He does well for himself and raises Dhanraj’s kids.

When Dhanraj is released from prison after several years, he receives his son’s letter. He sneaks into his son’s college and sees Raj (Aamir) his son singing and enjoying his life.  That’s when Aamir sings the famous song ‘ Papa Kehte hein ‘ . When Raj and his friend go to Dhanakpur to resolve a land dispute, Raj’s eyes fall on Rashmi (Juhi Chawla). They again meet up at a Holiday spot. They loose their way while returning home and it’s during this period they fall deeply in love. Raj comes to know that Rashmi belongs to Thakur Raghuveer’s family whom they are enemies with. He does not disclose this to her.

When Rashmi’s father Randhir Singh comes to know about the affair, he decides to get his daughter married. Both Rashmi and Raj decide to elope. They stay in a  deserted fort and are blissfully happy. Finally Rashmi’s father comes to know about their whereabouts. He hires a contract killer to kill Raj  but he ends up shooting Rashmi instead. Aamir overpowers the contract killer and runs  to rescue Rashmi. She breathes her last. Unable to come to terms with his loss, Aamir kills himself with a dagger which was given by Rashmi. They finally unite  forever in death.

The most popular song of this movie is Papa Kehte hein which was a huge hit. In this video Dhanraj is released from Jail and he sneaks into his son’s college to have a glimpse of his son. You also get to see Aamir’s ex wife Reena . She’s in a red dress with long hair. I leave you to enjoy the song. It’s fun to watch the old couple jiving to this number . Enjoy !!!! 🙂 🙂
