Tere Naam (English: In your name) is a 2003 Indian Hindi-language romantic drama film. It is directed by Satish Kaushik and written by Bala and Jainendra Jain, starring Salman Khan and Bhoomika Chawla in her Hindi film debut.[1] The film is a remake of Bala's own directional venture, Tamil film Sethu (1999).[2]

The film was based on a real life incident of a friend of Bala's, who had fallen in love, lost his mind and ended up at a mental asylum.[3][4]

Tere Naam was released on 15 August 2003. Khan was highly praised for his portrayal of Radhe Mohan and the role is widely considered to be his finest performance till date.[5][6] Tere Naam was nominated for a total of 24 Awards, winning 7 of them, including 8 Filmfare Award nominations.[7] In 2011 Kaushik announced a sequel to Tere Naam, thus he is currently working on the script.[8]


Radhe Mohan (Salman Khan) is a rough and uncouth college rowdy and also The Students Union Chairman of the college, who uses violence as the only way to deal with people. He lives with his brother, a Magistrate (Sachin Khedekar), and his sister-in-law, who is the only person who seems to understand him properly.

The movie opens with Radhe winning the elections to the office bearers of the college's Students Union followed by celebrations and in-campus fight between the rival candidates.

Radhe has a staple diet of yes-sir friends surrounding him. He comes across a timid girl, Nirjara (Bhumika Chawla), who is the daughter of a poor temple priest, and starts to woo her. When she initially rejects him, he kidnaps her and forces her to fall in love with him.

When the girl falls in love with him, Radhe is attacked by brothel goons and ends up in a swamiji ashram with brain damage. With no memory of his past and having developed an unusual behaviour, he starts to recollect memories. At one point, he is completely back to his normal self and tries to escape by climbing over the gates. Unfortunately, he fails and ends up with serious injuries.

Whilst sleeping with his injury, Nirjara makes a surprise visit. However Radhe is asleep and she leaves with this woeful memory of him. As she is about to leave the institution, he wakes up and realises that she had come to see him. As he calls out, she leaves unable to hear him.

Persistent to meet her he makes another attempt to leave the institution and this time he is successful. When he arrives at her house he is presented with his love unfortunately dead. He realises that she had committed suicide.

Distraught after what he saw, he just walks out and at that point he is met with the mental institution wardens who came chasing after him. The film ends with Radhe leaving with them as he has nothing to live for after his true love's death.



Amisha Patel was originally considered to play the role of Nirjara,[citation needed] but scheduling conflicts prevented her from accepting. The role was given to Bhumika Chawla, who made her Bollywood debut in the film.
