Dharam-Veer is a 1977 Hindi-language action film directed by Manmohan Desai and produced by Subhas Desai under the Mehboob Studios and R.K. Studios banner. It features Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Zeenat Aman, Neetu Singh, Pran. The music of this film was composed by Laxmikan-Pyarelal.
Bobby Deol, Dharmendra’s younger son, makes a brief appearance as a kid version of his father’s role. It was one of Desai’s four major singles of the year, all of which were based on the ‘separated and reunited’ subject (the others were Parvarish and Chacha Bhatija).
Dharam-Veer is set in a legendary realm and relates the story of twin brothers who were separated at birth yet grew up to be best friends, unaware that they were true brothers. It also recounts their exploits, including Dharam gaining the heart of a lovely princess, court intrigues, and a slew of villains. The film went on to become a massive blockbuster in India, becoming the second highest-grossing film of 1977 and one of the most popular films of the decade.
The soundtrack was composed by Laxmikant–Pyarelal, while the lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi, a veteran. The film’s soundtrack was as popular and profitable as the film itself. Misirlou covered Hum Banjaaro ki Baat Mat Pucho ji.
