Sooryavansham (transl.?Lineage of the Sun God) is a 1999 Indian Hindi-language romantic musical drama film directed by E. V. V. Satyanarayana. It stars Amitabh Bachchan and Soundarya, with Jayasudha, Rachna Banerjee, Anupam Kher and Kader Khan in supporting roles. Revolving around the tensed relationship between a traditional father and his illiterate yet obedient son, the film portrays how the strict patriarchy causes a drift between them.

Sooryavansham served as the remake of the 1997 Tamil-language film Suryavamsam directed by Vikraman. Made on a budget of ?7 crore (US$943,000), principal photography took place in and around various locations in India such as Hyderabad, Gujarat and Rajasthan, as well as Sri Lanka. S. Gopal Reddy acted as the cinematographer, while Gautham Raju edited the film. Anu Malik composed the film's music, with lyrics penned by Sameer.

The film was opened to positive reviews towards the performance of Bachchan, but ended up being a Box-office bomb, grossing only ?6.67 crore (US$890,000). However, over the years, it has gathered cult following among the Indian diaspora, and has been telecasted frequently in the Television channel Set Max.[citation needed]

The Sooryavansham Family Head - Thakur Bhanupratap Singh is the sarpanch of the village of Bharatpur. The people of Bharatpur respect and revere Thakur Bhanupratap for his blue blood and virtuous ideologies. Thakur Bhanupratap has done yeoman's service not only for the people of Bharatpur but also for those of the 18 neighbouring villages in the district. The local police and administration also obey his orders in the matters of law.

Thakur Bhanupratap lives in a grand mansion with his wife Sharda, three sons, Karan, Varun and Heera and daughter Urmila. One of his sons is an engineer, one is a doctor, while Heera, the youngest one, lives like a servant in the house because of his illiteracy. It is Heera's illiteracy because of which Thakur Bhanupratap dislikes Heera, and let alone talking to him, he hates even looking at Heera. Heera is not allowed to be involved in familial matters and performs menial activities like cleaning, washing, herding cattle etc. Although hated by Thakur Bhanupratap, Heera has intense love and respect for his father, making him an ideal and worthy son. Yet, Thakur Bhanupratap's feelings for Heera are only hate and antipathy. Heera is loved and cared for by none except Sharda and Heera's close friend Dharmendra/Mindra, one of the servants in the house.

Thakur Bhanupratap arranges the marriage of his daughter Urmila. A few days before the engagement ceremony, the groom comes to his house along with his uncle Ranjit Singh, a retired major, and sister Radha. Radha, a modern young woman, is unaware of Heera being Thakur Bhanupratap's son and makes Heera do various chores. On the day of the engagement, when Radha learns the truth from her father, she is shocked as well as touched. Subsequently, Radha develops an eagerness to know why Heera lives like a servant in his own house. Radha inquires Dharmendra about this. Dharmendra narrates Radha Heera's past -

During his childhood, although Heera attended school, he was very weak in his studies. He scored zero in the school examinations, because of which he was beaten by his father. Even when Heera rewrote the mark on his score card to make it 100, he still got a beating from his father by getting caught after writing 100 erroneously. Heera wasn't at all interested in studies. He used to go to school only to meet Gauri, the girl who was adopted by Thakur Bhanupratap after the demise of her parents. Gauri was more than just a friend for Heera. One day at school, a teacher thrashed Gauri. Heera hit the teacher and bolted away along with Gauri. He began to hate the school where his beloved, Gauri was punished, and discontinued his academic studies. Gauri, however, continued her studies. Thakur Bhanupratap thought that Heera's company would hamper Gauri's studies and sent her to a boarding school in the city. Being separated from Gauri, Heera became desolate. Heera cheered up on the weekends w
 hen Gauri came home for the 2-days' stay, during which the two met each other. Soon, Heera and Gauri attained adulthood. Thakur Bhanupratap planned Heera's marriage with Gauri. When Gauri came to know about this, she attempted suicide but was timely rescued by Heera. Gauri told Heera that she preferred death to marriage with an illiterate man like him. For Gauri, Heera was a man of straw and by marrying him, she would belittle herself in front of her educated peers. Heera let go of Gauri and thus the relationship between the two ended. Thakur Bhanupratap, learning only half the truth, was filled with more hatred for Heera tha
