Awwal Number is a 1990 film directed by Dev Anand. The film features the then 67-year-old Dev Anand with Aditya Pancholi and Aamir Khan.


The story revolves around cricket where a new star Sunny (Aamir Khan) has been included in the team in place of another famous star Ronny (Aditya Pancholi). All this creates hatred in the heart of Ronny against Sunny, although Sunny respects him. Ronny decides to take revenge on Sunny; meanwhile a terrorist decides to put a bomb in the field where a match is to be organised between India and Australia.

DIG Vikram Singh (Dev Anand) comes to know about the plan of the terrorists and goes on to prevent the attack, saving thousands of lives. Sunny also becomes a star by playing a match-winning stroke for the country.



The Music is Composed By Bappi Lahiri and Lyrics by Amit Khanna. Voice is rendered by Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Udit Narayan, S. Janki and Bappi Lahiri
