Ram Aur Shyam (English: "Ram And Shyam") is a 1967 Indian Hindi feature film, directed by Tapi Chanakya. Its producer was B. Nagi Reddy. It was previously produced as Ramudu Bheemudu by D. Ramanaidu under Suresh Productions Banner, a Telugu film starring N.T. Rama Rao, in 1964; Ram Aur Shyam is Nagi Reddi's Hindi version.

Ram Aur Shyam has music by Naushad and lyrics by Shakeel Badayuni, it stars Dilip Kumar, Pran, Waheeda Rehman, and Mumtaz.

The theme owes its origins to Alexandre Dumas, père's story The Corsican Brothers: twins separated at birth who grow up with very different temperaments and then exchange places, leading to the villain being taught a lesson.[1] Like The Corsican Brothers, which has been adapted into several feature films, Ram Aur Shyam has inspired remakes in Hindi movies too, with Seeta Aur Geeta (featuring female twins, played by Hema Malini) in 1972; Chaalbaaz (starring Sridevi) in 1989; and Kishen Kanhaiya (starring Anil Kapoor) in 1990.
