Naam (English: Name) is a 1986 Hindi-language Indian feature film directed by Mahesh Bhatt, starring Nutan, Sanjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav, Poonam Dhillon, Amrita Singh and Paresh Rawal. The film is regarded a milestone in the careers of both Mahesh Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. Naam proved to be a blockbuster at the Indian box office, playing for over a year at a majority of India's cinemas and stands as the eighth highest grossing Hindi film of the 1980s decade grossing ₹305 million (US$4.5 million). The soundtrack for the movie also contributed to its huge success. "Chithi Aayi Hai" (Lyrics: Anand Bankshi, Singer: Pankaj Udhas) was selected as one of the 100 songs of millennium by BBC Radio.
To add to this burden, the family has to consider the waywardness of Vicky, who is always getting into trouble with the law. Ravi, on the other hand, is a hard-working, responsible son who earns for the family, but also makes sacrifices for Vicky. Vicky is determined to get a job in Dubai as he has heard of thousands of Indians making a successful living there.
Ravi arranges for Vicky's visa and the money to go to Dubai. Once in Dubai, the Kapoors receive no word from him. Vicky has encountered problems in Dubai, as he was cheated out of a job and his visa was obtained fraudulently. In order to remain in Dubai, he must work for ruthless international smuggler Rana (Paresh Rawal), and must earn his keep or be turned over to the authorities.
The movie could not be awarded that year since no award ceremony took place in the years1986, 1987 and 1988.
Bhatt and Dutt were both lauded as award favorites by many critics upon release of the film but unfortunatly neither could be awarded that year since no award ceremony took place in the years 1987 and 1988 due to security issues.
