Benaam Badshah is an Indian action drama released in 1991 and directed by K. Ravi Shankar. Anil Kapoor plays a criminal, who, from his early abandonment as a child, grows up to become an assassin. His criminal activities extend into kidnap and rape when he destroys the life of Jyoti (Juhi Chawla) on her wedding day. With her life torn apart, Jyoti decides her only route forward is to stay with her attacker. Among the desolation of criminal life, Jyoti attempts to reform the rapist, who she now names Deepak (Anil Kapoor). Under the stringent confines of Indian social culture, Jyoti uses her wits to establish a relationship with Deepak to improve her desperate situation. All of Jyoti's hard work may be ruined when Jaikal (Amrish Puri) offers Deepak a contract to assassinate Kaameshwari (Rohini Hattangadi). The Bollywood movie focuses on the cultural constraints of women, the role of poverty in crime and explores human redemption.
