Bollywood filmmakers choose unique titles for their films that either match the plot line or are related to the film’s characters. Did you know that multiple films have often shared the same title? In some cases, the titles were exactly the same, with no changes even in the spelling. The good part was that these films had a different concept and genre. For example, one film titled Hera Pheri was made with Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna; while another is a classic comedy film featuring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal. Similarly, Amol Palekar’s Golmaal and Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal are two different films. Today, we will talk about a film title which was used thrice. The title is Aankhen. Let’s take a look at them.
Aankhen was produced and directed by Ramanand Sagar. The film turned out to be a big-budget one, with shooting in various international locations. The film features Mala Sinha, Dharmendra, Mehmood, Lalita Pawar, Jeevan and Madan Puri in crucial roles. The film narrated the story of post-independence India facing terrorist attacks in Assam, resulting in many deaths and casualties. A group of concerned citizens then decided to do something to stop the violence.
Aankhen featuring Govinda, Chunky Pandey, Kader Khan, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Ritu Shivpuri, Raageshwari and Shilpa Shirodkar in crucial roles is one of the hit films of the 1990s. The David Dhawan-directorial is about two good-for-nothing brothers, who are embroiled in a conspiracy involving a political assassination and try their best to save the country. The film is packed with action and a perfect amount of comedy. The film reportedly collected Rs 25.25 crore at the box office.
The Vipul Shah-directorial featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Sushmita Sen, Paresh Rawal and Arjun Rampal in pivotal roles is a thriller drama. The film revolves around a temperamental man unceremoniously stripped of his duties as a bank manager; then he decides to seek revenge by robbing the bank.
