Vijaypath (English: Path of Victory) is a 1994 Bollywood action drama film starring Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Danny Denzongpa.[1]

The film was one of the hits of 1994 in India mainly due to its soundtrack composed by Anu Malik, which became an instant superhit. Divya Bharti was originally meant to be the female lead, but was replaced by Tabu after her death.

Dilawar Singh also tries to kill their sons. Driver Shanker's son, Karan (Ajay Devgn) loses his eyesight while saving Justice Saxena's son Babloo.

Justice Saxena's wife, the two children and Rajesh Saxena leave the city. Dilawar Singh finds them and kills the Judge's wife and throws Babloo out of the running train.

Soundtrack[edit]

The soundtrack album of the movie composed by Anu Malik topped the charts in 1994. Apart from the side-splitting "Ruk Ruk Ruk Arey Baba", sung by Alisha Chinai, the mushy romantic number "Raah Mein Unse Mulaqaat", rendered by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik can be heard playing on FM broadcasting radio and stereo even today. The other songs, too, chipped in to the popularity of the album.[2] The album brought off rank 537 in the "Best Albums of 1994" and was in the place 5214 in the "Best Albums of the 1990s".[3]
