Tere Naam (Hindi: तेरे नाम, Urdu: تیرے نام, In your name) is a 2003 Bollywood musical 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. The film is a remake of Bala's own directional venture, Tamil film Sethu (1999).
The film is supposedly based on a true story as the DVD cover says "Unfortunately a true love story", though during the end credits a fictitious disclaimer is shown. Before the release of the film media speculated the film was based on Khan's real life relationship with actress Aishwarya Rai.
Tere Naam was released on 15 August 2003 and was a major success at the box office. Salman was highly praised for his portrayal of Radhe Mohan and the role is widely considered to be his finest performance till date. Tere Naam was nominated for a total of 24 Awards, winning 7 of them, including 8 Filmfare Award nominations. In 2011 Kaushik announced a sequel to Tere Naam, thus he is currently working on the script.
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.

The film was offered to Amisha Patel to play the lead role of Nirjara opposite to Salman Khan. Due to date problem actress refused the film, and then which went out to Bhumika Chawla who made her debut in Bollywood.
Tere Naam garnered overwhelmingly buoyant reviews. Subhash K Jha of Times of India waxed lyrical about Salman claiming that the actor had outshone even Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan. " Obsessive unrequited love has been done by many actors in the past from Dilip Kumar in Mehboob Khan's Andaz to Amitabh Bacchan in Parwana to Shah Rukh Khan in Anjaam. But none has done it with such stunning physical and emotional aggression. Salman takes over the show with gut-wrenching and finally devastating impact."
Tere Naam opened to packed houses. The response to Tere Naam surpassed that of Gadar Ek Prem Katha, Lagaan, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon and Koi... Mil Gaya. Jodhpur saw almost a dozen people donning Salman's Tere Naam hairstyle for the first day's show. And this was the place where Salman Khan had received the maximum flak after his black buck case.
Komal Nahta reported in Film Information that the collections at Meerut's Nandan cinema have broken records over the last five years. Two hours after the advanced booking counter for the film opened for the first time, the theatre sold Rs 3 lakh (Rs 300,000) worth of tickets.
