Indian romantic action movie Baazigar was released in 1993. It was directed by Abbas-Mustan and made by Venus Movies. In addition to Raakhee, Adi Irani, Shilpa Shetty, Dalip Tahil, Siddharth Ray, and Johnny Lever playing supporting roles, it has Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the key roles. In the movie, a young guy seeks revenge for his family's demise. The novel A Kiss Before Dying by Ira Levin, published in 1953, and the 1991 movie of the same name serve as the story's loose inspirations.
Ajay Sharma, a young boy, vows to exact revenge on Madan Chopra, a wealthy businessman, for the death of his father. The older of Chopra's two daughters is Seema, and the younger is Priya. Ajay and Seema start dating in secret. Chopra competes in his final auto race in Madras only to discover that another competitor, Vicky Malhotra (Ajay plays the part), let him triumph intentionally so that he could meet him. Priya met and fell in love with "Vicky" after Chopra is impressed by him. By adopting alternate identities, Ajay is able to date Seema and Priya simultaneously.
Later, after her parents plans her wedding with somebody else, Ajay persuades Seema to kill herself along with him. They both write suicide notes and sign them, but he later claims he was just testing her love for him and tears up his letter while retaining hers. They decide to get married the following day at the registrar's office. Ajay, however, takes Seema to the building's roof and pushes her off, killing her as they wait for the office to open. After that, he sends her suicide note covertly to her residence. To avoid more humiliation must the suicide letter be found, Chopra swiftly orders the case closed. With the assistance of police investigator Karan Saxena, Priya covertly carries out more research since she has a suspicion that her sister did not actually kill herself.
Ravi, who had a crush on Seema in college, reveals to Priya that he has a picture of Ajay and Seema together during an event held at Seema's dorm. Ajay learns of this and kills Ravi before Priya can get to him to see the picture. In the course of their conflict, Ajay coerces Ravi into writing a suicide note that makes it seem as though Ravi is the one who killed Seema. As a result, the probe is put on hold once more. In the meantime, Ajay gradually gains Madan's trust while posing as "Vicky." Madan Chopra makes the decision to get Priya and "Vicky" engaged.
In a flashback, it is revealed that Chopra worked as a project manager for the business owned by Ajay's late father, Mr Sharma, but was jailed for 3 years after Sharma caught him defrauding money. Madan begged for forgiveness after serving his sentence in prison, and Sharma's wife convinced her husband to hire him again. Unknown to everyone, Chopra had come back to exact vengeance. Sharma gave Chopra the power of attorney when he needed to leave on a business trip one day, and Chopra took advantage of the situation to take over as the company's owner. When Sharma returned, he discovered this but was too late. As a result of Chopra taking out a loan in Sharma's name, his family was forced to leave their luxurious property. When his mother came to ask for their house back, Ajay saw Chopra eve-teasing her; as a result, she cursed him for disaster and powerlessness later in life. Ajay, who was deeply hurt, resolved to hold Chopra accountable, and now his main goal in life is to bring Chopra to justice.
Fast-forward to the present and Anjali, a friend of Seema, meets Priya and Ajay at jewellery. She also finds a picture of Seema and Ajay taken at her birthday celebration. That evening, "Vicky" and Priya become engaged. During Ajay's engagement party, Anjali calls the Chopra household and asks Babulal, the head servant, to inform them that Ajay and "Vicky" look alike. Anjali is killed by Ajay, who then places her corpse in a bag and throws it in a river, while Babulal tries to tell Priya about it over the phone.
When Chopra needs to take a business trip, history is repeated by giving "Vicky" the power of attorney. But soon, a guy and his dog discover Anjali's body on a seashore, and when Inspector Karan and Priya learn about this, they know that murderer is still around. Realizing that Priya and Karan are determined to locate the murderer and that he has grown to love Priya, Ajay tries to expedite his preparations. When he and Priya encounter the actual Vicky Malhotra, Ajay's colleague, whose name he had stolen, Priya becomes suspicious, throwing a wrench in his plans.
Vicky informs Priya of Ajay's true identity, and she immediately makes her way to his Panvel residence. When she discovers a marriage locket containing images of him and her sister, she is stunned. When Ajay gets home, she confronts him about his wrongdoing. Then, after telling her his own experience, he adds that his father passed away from a heart attack and his younger sister passed away from disease as a result of the misery her father drove their family into. Due to her mental instability and trauma after her husband's and daughter's death, Ajay's mother is unable to identify Ajay as her son. Priya understands that her father is to blame. Chopra arrives at his home, shoots Ajay in the arm, and has his goons beat him up.
As soon as Ajay's mother regains her sanity, Chopra hurts her when she tries to step in, which infuriates Ajay. He engages the gangsters in vicious combat and is about to execute Chopra but police inspector Karan convinces him to show pity for his mother. Chopra seizes the chance to hit him with a rod while giggling uncontrollably. Ajay responds with a laugh before killing Chopra by impaling him with the same rod. He announces to his mother that he has recovered everything before passing out in her arms. Ajay's mother, Inspector Karan, and Priya watch helplessly as he passes away from his wounds, at last at rest.
