Vishwavidhaata is a 1997 Hindi movie directed by Farogh Siddique starring Jackie Shroff, Ayesha Jhulka, Sharad Kapoor, Pooja Batra, Arjun and Ashish Vidyarthi. The film is shot in India and Sharjah. It is a remake of a Tamil movie Pudhiya Mugam, written by Revathi and Suresh Menon. The film features songs composed by A. R. Rahman, re-used from Pudhiya Mugam.

Jai Verma (Sharad Kapoor) lives in Bombay. He is an honest, unemployed youth who cannot arrange for his mother's treatment. He happens to meet underworld goons looking for such frustrated people, and they force Jay into the world of terrorism. Rai Bahadur (Ashish Vidyarthi), the uncrowned king of terrorism, orders Jai to be killed when he revolts.
Jai flees to Sharjah and undergoes plastic surgery to begin a new life. He returns to India as Ajay Kahnna (Jackie Shroff), meets his ex-lover Radha (Ayesha Jhulka) and marries her. They have a baby boy, Ravi Khanna (also Sharad Kapoor). Ravi's parents want him to become a police officer to do away with traitors, but they themselves end up becoming a target instead.
