Janbaaz (lit. Daredevil) is a 1986 Indian film, produced and directed by Feroz Khan, which became popular for its portrayal of drug addiction and Anil Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia's steamy sex scene. Sridevi featured in the song "Har kisiko nahi milta yaha pyaar zindagi mein" which became an instant chart-topping hit. The movie is greatly inspired by the Gregory Peck and Joseph Cotten starrer Hollywood movie Duel in the Sun (1946).

Plot[edit]

Rana Vikram Singh lives in a huge farmhouse with his wife, Laxmi and two sons: Rajesh (Feroz Khan), a police officer and Amar (Anil Kapoor), a fun-loving playboy. Amar's entry begins with him playing a round of loaded Russian Roulette which he wins and proclaims himself jaanbaaz.

Rajesh has gone through a traumatic experience of losing his love Seema (Sridevi), when she succumbed to drug addiction. He vows to fight the drug menace. An underworld kingpin Raja (Shakti Kapoor) murders Rana's old friend. Reshma (Dimple Kapadia), his friend's daughter, takes shelter in Rana's house. Rajesh is on the drug trail. Reshma's father lost a huge bet (by being tricked) to Raja after which Raja killed him in a fake accident.

When Reshma goes to live with them, Amar sleeps with her in a horse stable. After savoring Reshma and ruining her life, Amar refuses to marry her. Reshma is heartbroken but continues to move on with her life. When Rana comes to know of Amar's relationship with Reshma, he warns him that Reshma is not suitable for their family. But Amar maintains an interest and is jealous to see Reshma in the company of Vikas, an employee at the farmhouse. A fight ensues between Vikas and Amar, and Vikas is killed. Amar is now on the run, and Rajesh has been assigned the task of apprehending him. But at the end Reshma doesn't go to Rajesh.
