Sharaabi (English: Drunkard) is a 1984 Indian Hindi drama film produced and directed by Prakash Mehra. This was Prakash Mehra's last hit and sixth in a row with Amitabh, the other five being Zanjeer, Hera Pheri, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Laawaris and Namak Halaal. He did subsequently make Jaadugar with Amitabh but the film did not click.
The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Prada with Pran and Om Prakash along with Bharat Bhushan and Ranjeet. The music was given by Bappi Lahiri. This is based on Arthur directed by Steve Gordon[disambiguation needed] & starring Dudley Moore. Sharaabi became a silver jubilee "Blockbuster" at the box office and went on to be another mega hit of Amitabh Bachchan. This was also one of the Megastar's last films before he left films and ventured into politics.
Vicky Kapoor (Amitabh Bachchan), the only son of multi-millionaire industrialist, Amarnath (Pran), grows up to be an alcoholic, a spolit brat with a good heart. Amarnath has detached himself completely from Vicky's life, and provides him money in lieu of affection and care, leaving this to be taken care of by Munshi Phoolchand (Om Prakash). Vicky is very resentful of being ignored by his dad in this manner, and leaves no stone unturned to mock and belittle him at every available opportunity. Amarnath hopes to get his son married, but Vicky loves Meena (Jayapradha), the daughter of a poor blind man, which is not acceptable to Amarnath. One day, Amarnath decides he has had enough and decides to turn Vicky out of his house. He has him sign waivers, and asks him to get out, which Vicky happily does. While Vicky is relieved of being freed from his dad's control, the question remains that with no skills at making a living, how is Vicky to survive in a cold-hearted world?
