Jamai Raja (meaning "Son-in-law") is a romantic action comedy Hindi film of 1990. The film features Hema Malini, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. The film is directed by A. Kodandarami Reddy and is a remake of 1989's Telugu film Attaku Yamudu Ammayiki Mogudu starring Vanisri, Chiranjeevi and Vijaya Shanti.


Durgeshwari Devi (Hema Malini) is a very rich and proud lady. She stays in her palace-like home with her two sons Dheeraj and Neeraj, her daughter Rekha (Madhuri Dixit), her brother, nicknamed DDT (Anupam Kher), and his close friend, nicknamed BBC (Satish Kaushik) along with her personal secretary, Shakti. Rekha studies in a medical college in Bombay. Durgeshwari Devi has full control over her home and company and is feared by all. Her ambitions of wedding Rekha in a rich family like hers seem to fail when Rekha falls in love with Raja (Anil Kapoor). Raja is an unemployed, poor but smart and educated man. Durgeshwari seeing him to be a smart fellow puts a condition for agreeing to the marriage which would humiliate him and thus back out. She asks Raja to live with them after the marriage and not other way round where the bride goes to live at groom's home.

Duregeshwari tries many tricks to humiliate, demean and even portray false image of Raja in front of Rekha with help of all her aides. But putting all in vain, Raja outdoes her tricks and eventually also enters in her good books.



The songs of the film are composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and lyrics by Javed Akhtar.
