"Beta" (Hindi: बेटा, Urdu: بیٹا, translation: "Son") is a 1992 Bollywood movie directed by Indra Kumar. The film featured the pairing of Madhuri Dixit with Anil Kapoor, who were previously paired in "Tezaab" and "Parinda". The film is perhaps best remembered for the hit song "Dhak Dhak Karne Laga", which earned Dixit her nickname as the "Dhak-Dhak Girl" ("dhak-dhak" = heartbeat). "Beta" won four Filmfare Awards including Best Actress (Dixit), Best Actor (Kapoor), Best Playback Singer (Anuradha Paudwal for "Dhak Dhak Karne Laga") and Best Supporting Actress Aruna Irani. It's a remake of Tamil blockbuster "Enga Chinna Raasa" directed by Bhagyaraj. Actually the Tamil movie "Enga Chinna Raasa" was remade from the 1969 Kannada movie "Mallammana Pavada" directed by the Great Puttana Kanagal. Padmasree B.Sarojadevi and Kannada Film Legend Dr. Rajkumar were the actors in the original Kannada movie.

The song "Dhak Dhak Karne Laga" was actually recycled from "Abbanee Tiyyani" composed by Illayaraja from Telugu blockbuster Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari, which was dubbed and released in hindi as "Aadmi Aur Apsara".


Beta is the story of Raju (Anil Kapoor), the only child of a widowed multi millionaire. Raju's father can provide him anything he wants but Raju's only desire is to get mother's love, in order to please Raju, his father gets married to Nagmani (Aruna Irani), thinking that she will take care of Raju more than his real mother would. Raju becomes completely devoted to his stepmother, doing whatever she wishes. Time passes by, Raju grows up and gets married to Saraswati (Madhuri Dixit). Saraswati discovers that Nagmani's motherly love for Raju is fake and all what Nagmani is interested in, is capturing Raju's wealth. And thus begins a battle within the household between daughter-inlaw and mother-in-law.
