Virasat (1997)

A remake of Tamil film, Thevar Magan, which was directed by Bharathan, Virasat was probably one of the best film to come out in the year 1997. Directed by Priyadarshan, Virasat had a strong star cast comprising of Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Tabu and Pooja Batra. Based on the story revolving around the war between two brothers, Virasat entertained us with memorable performances by Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri and Tabu. Pooja Batra impressed in her debut while the story by Kamal Hassan and screenplay by Vinay Shukla was clap-worthy.

Anu Malik, though reused some of the tunes from Ilayaraja from the Tamil hits, composed some of beautiful songs like “Payalay Chunmun” , “Tare Hain Barati”, “Ek Tha Raja” and “Dhol Bajne Laga”. The scene between Amrish Puri and Anil Kapoor from the film where he tries to convince Anil Kapoor to stay back and improve the condition of the village is probably one of the best scenes in the history of Indian cinema. The movie opened slow but picked up well and turned out to be “Super-Hit” at the box office.

Unfortunately, the movie did not click at the box office.
