Shaan is a 1980 action thriller film. The film was directed by Ramesh Sippy, with a story written by Salim-Javed, after the blockbuster success of their previous venture, Sholay.
The film was an average performer upon its initial release. However, it did a great business after re-runs with packed houses. Eventually, it was declared to be the highest grosser of 1980.
It is classed as an all-time Blockbuster. It did obtain the services of Sholay’s music composer, R.D. Burman, whose songs bagged a Best Music nomination at Filmfare.
