Boxer is a 1984 Hindi-language feature film directed by Raj N. Sippy, starring Mithun Chakraborty, Rati Agnihotri, Sharat Saxena, Danny Denzongpa and Tanuja.


Dharma (Danny Denzongpa) works as a boxer with Kashmir Silk Mills. The Managing Director is very pleased with him, and assures him that if he will win the next boxing bout against Shera, he will be sent to London. Unfortunately, Dharma loses the bout, he is grievously injured, unable to box anymore, and shortly thereafter he is fired from his job. Thereafter an embittered Dharma takes to drinking alcohol in a big way, ignoring his pregnant wife, Savitri (Tanuja), & young son, Shankar (Mithun Chakraborty). Things get worse when Savitri gives birth to a second baby boy, Sonu. Then in order to make ends meet, Shankar takes to stealing, and hiding from the law. Years later, Shankar, now a career criminal, is arrested for stealing a watch from a man coming out of a jewellery store, he is tried in court and sentenced to jail for 6 months. In prison, he meets with boxing manager, Tony Braganza (Parikshat Sahni), and after his release he starts to train with him and eventually challenges the reigning Champion Raghu Raj (Sharat Saxena).
