Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki is a 1984 Indian Hindi feature film produced & directed by Babbar Subhash, starring Mithun Chakraborty, Smita Patil, Salma Agha, Karan Razdan, Geeta Siddharth and Amrish Puri. It was Super Hit at box office.
Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki is the story of Satish Kumar (Mithun Chakraborty). After the passing of his father, Satish is the only heir to a vast estate. As he is five years old, he can only inherit it fully when he becomes 20. The estate is placed under the care of his paternal uncle, Udaybhan Singh (Amrish Puri), who carefully drugs and intimidates Satish to such an extent that Satish is terrified of his uncle's shadow.
Years go by. Satish has achieved adulthood, is married to Aarti (Smita Patil), and continues to live in fear of his uncle. After one night of bliss, Satish finds out that Aarti had married him to rob him of cash and jewellery. He is devastated. Uday asks Aarti to leave, and Satish follows her. Aarti asks him for forgiveness, and he does so. However, Udaybhan knifes him to death and has it written off by the police as suicide. Aarti swears to avenge this through her child in her womb. Years later, Aarti and her son, Avinash (Mithun Chakraborty), surface to avenge Satish's death — they find out that it is not easy to hoodwink a wily Udaybhan, and they could well be endangering their very own lives.

Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki features a dance sequence called Jeena Bhi Kya Hai Jeena Teri Ankhon Ke Bina clearly modeled on Michael Jackson's video "Thriller", in which the ghoulish characters do a synchronised dance in a graveyard.
The film has recently gained attention for the filmi funk/jazz/soul song Come Closer, produced by Bappi Lahiri and sung by the film's actress Salma Agha. The song has been sampled in various (particularly hip hop) songs in recent years, including "My Life" (2006) by Dabrye featuring Showbiz and A.G., "The Medicine" (2006) by Planet Asia, "The Hitman (Kutmasta Kurt Remix)" (2006) by Create & Devastate featuring Masta Ace and Stricklin (2006), "Saanks Mä Murista Sun Muffinssiin" (2008) by Edu Kehäkettunen and DJPP featuring Stig Dogg, and Come Closer (2009) by Onra.
A movie poster quite similar to the original poster for Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki was shown in the posters for Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur. However, the 'a' from the word 'Kasam' has been removed.
Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki was remade as:
- The Secret Life of Akira Kikuchi in Japanese
- Materi Klyatva in Russian
- Sergio Martinez in Spanish
- Mangamma Sabadham in Tamil with Kamal Hassan, Sujatha and Madhavi. It was released in 1985, directed by veteran K. Vijayan. 
- Donga (film), a 1985 Bollywood film which also features a parody of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video that has become an Internet meme.
