"Gadar" a.k.a. "Gadar: Ek Prem Katha" is a 2001 Bollywood action movie starring Sunny Deol, Amisha Patel, and Amrish Puri set in the time of the Indian partition. Gadar: Ek Prem Katha was a box office phenomenon and sold more tickets at theatres in India than any film in history apart from Sholay. When Gadar was released on 15 June 2001, producer for Zee Telefilms, Nitin Keni, director Anil Sharma, lead star Sunny Deol, assorted trade pundits, and seasoned film critics had no idea that the film, which was set during a turbulent time in modern Indian history, would create box-office history. Gadar clashed with Aamir Khan's Lagaan at the box office. Made for 185 million, Gadar has made more than 2.86 billion to date and, after its theatrical run, was commercially the most successful movie in India when it was released. It is in list of "Biggest Blockbusters Ever in Hindi Cinema". Gadar is the third highest grossing film in Bollywood history in India & fifth highest worldwide when inflation is taken into account. With this film, Deol was nominated for the Film fare Best Actor Award.
