     13The Hindi hit of 1995 is a remarkably scripted 
     14drama combining at least four genres: a Kali 
     15mythological, a reincarnation drama, a 
     16modernisation melodrama and a Sholay (1975) 
     17kind of Western. At some time in the past in 
     18Rajasthan, shown before the credit titles, Karan 
     19(Salman Khan) and Arjun (Shah Rukh Khan), 
     20the sons of Durga (Raakhee), are killed by the 
     21evil Durjan Singh (Puri). Durjan Singh had 
     22earlier killed their father and grandfather and 
     23appropriated the family’s ancestral property. 
     24However, Kali responds to Durga’s pleas and 
     25the dead sons are reborn as the streetfighter 
     26Ajay and the stable boy Vijay. The plot 
     27becomes complicated when a ‘modernised’ 
     28Durjan Singh, his villainy intact, becomes an 
     29arms smuggler in partnership with Mr Saxena 
     30(Ranjeet), whose daughter Sonia (Kajol) loves 
     31Vijay although she is supposed to marry Durjan 
     32Singh’s equally villainous son, Suraj. However, 
     33troubled as well as invigorated by memory 
     34flashes stemming from their earlier 
     35incarnations, Ajay and Vijay in the end unite 
     36with their mother to defeat the evil gang. The 
     37film had a series of hit songs, e.g. Yeh janmon 
     38ka bandhan hai (its leitmotif spanning the 
     39generational divide) and Jaati hun main/Jaldi 
     40hai kya, picturised on Kajol and Shah Rukh
