     16Ajay Sharma (Khan) becomes a ‘baazigar’, a 
     17gambler, in order to win over Priya (Kajol) and 
     18eventually to bring about the ruin of Priya’s 
     19father, Madan Chopra (Tahil). Previously, 
     20Chopra had similarly ruined Ajay’s father 
     21Vishwanath Sharma (Mahadevan) by 
     22appropriating Sharma’s industries and forcing 
     23Ajay’s family onto the streets. Ajay’s revenge 
     24consists of seducing Priya’s sister Seema 
     25(Shetty) and pushing her from a tall building. 
     26He then changes his identity and kills two more 
     27people while ingratiating himself into the 
     28Chopra household. In a violent ending Ajay 
     29dies in his mother’s (Raakhee) arms after he 
     30has killed Madan Chopra. The commercial hit 
     31inaugurates Shah Rukh Khan’s much-discussed 
     32playing of unusually vicious type of leading 
     33men (cf. Darr, 1993). Here, the depiction of 
     34his cold-blooded murder of Seema became 
     35especially controversial. Among the first of the 
     36several Khan-Kajol romances culminating in 
     37the smash hit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge 
     38(1995), the main bulk of the film features the 
     39fresh and spontaneous performances of these 
     40still-new stars in song hits such as Bazigar o 
     41bazigar and Yeh kali kali aankhen.
