Considered one of the most iconic films of its time, Mr. India was the second biggest box office hit of 1987, and remains a cult classic in Indian Cinema. Described as a Hindi fantasy superhero film, it stars Sridevi, Anil Kapoor, and Amrish Puri in lead roles.
A poor but big-hearted man (Kapoor) takes orphans into his home.
