Aaj Ka Goonda Raaj (transl. Ruffians rule) is a 1992 Indian Hindi-language action crime film starring Chiranjeevi, Meenakshi Sheshadri in lead roles. It is a remake of the 1991 Telugu film Gang Leader. This was Chiranjeevi's second film in Bollywood. The film explores the concepts of exploitation by anti-social elements and the impact of crowd psychology.

Aaj Ka Goonda Raaj was the remake of Chiranjeevi's own Gang Leader (1991). The film was a success at the box office but couldn't repeat the same blockbuster business like the original. Its 8th top grosser of that year at the box office. It grossed 3.75 crore at the box office. Mainly the songs were big hit at that time.[1]


Raja is portrayed as educated, righteous, honest, challenging, and a daredevil who is unemployed. With no work, he spends his time with his four friends. This upsets his grandmother and elder brothers Amar and Ravi, who worry about him.

Troubled by a lack of money, the family has many problems. Ravi's pending IAS examination requires money they do not have. To raise money, Raja and his friends take a job getting rid of Shalu, a tenant who has illegally settled in a house. Raja has an easy time getting rid of Shalu. But from then on, Shalu creates hell for him and moves into his house and life permanently.

Tejpal and Nagpal are power brokers. They succeed in getting Ritu married to Ravi, now an IAS officer, who is about to become a collector. The villains think this is a perfect strategy: Saxena's sister is married to Raja's brother. Raja revolts but is cornered. He has many clashes with the duo. In one of these clashes, Raja's friends and eldest brother Amar are murdered. All is lost until Raja and Ravi discover the truth about Tejpal and Nagpal. Raja and Ravi decide to end the Gundaraj.



While working on the film, Sharat Saxena endured an injury that disengaged his left arm after a fall.[2]


The album featured hit songs composed by Anand–Milind and written by Sameer. The album managed top sales in 1992.[3]
