Woh Tera Naam Tha is a Bollywood film from 2004, starring Rajat Bedi and Amrish Puri. The music was composed by Roop Kumar Rathod. The cinematographer was Manmohan Singh.


Orphaned at a very young age, Badruddin alias Badru was taken in by the kind-hearted Ustad Samad Khan (Puri), a once popular singer in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. During one of his shows, Samad found his audience distracted, and taking this as an insult to his art, gave up singing altogether. Badru is attracted to Samad's pretty daughter, Reshma, who also likes him. Badru has another admirer in the beautiful Naseem, but does not reciprocate her love. When Akhtar, a free lance photographer from Delhi, arrives there, Reshma and he instantly fall in love, leaving behind a heartbroken Badru. When Akhtar proposes marriage, Samad angrily rejects him, as he wants Reshma to marry Nawab Hyder Ali's son, Basharat (Bedi). This anger has repercussions on Samad's health and he is hospitalized. His treatment will cost a lot of money, so Reshma decides to take part in a singing competition, which she wins. Samad is treated and returns home to start preparations for Reshma's marriage, and is told to his astonishment that Reshma has already turned down Basharat's proposal. Basharat decides to take this matter into his own hands, and goes to Samad's house, and there is no one who can stop him from forcibly marrying Reshma.


On all, 'Woh Tera Naam Tha' is a formulaic film but it was mentioned that "given mentality of current audiences, a subject like this will hardly find takers" .[1]
