Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, sometimes called QSQT and released in 1988, is an Indian Bollywood film written by veteran producer/director Nasir Hussain and directed by his son Mansoor Khan. The film starred Hussains nephew, Aamir Khan, along with Juhi Chawla in their first major roles. It is often wrongly believed to be the debut film for both actors. However, Aamir Khan had earlier appeared in a small role in Holi (1984), and Juhi Chawla in Sultanat (1986). Upon release, the film became a box office hit and shot its leading stars to fame overnight. The film was also the first major hit for the music-director duo of Anand-Milind and singer Udit Narayan.
Qayamat Se Qayamat Taks music, romantic storyline, and young actors shifted the momentum away from the violent and aging ethos that were prevalent in the films at the time. It also made melodious tunes once again popular over the 80s trend of disco and breakdance influenced soundtracks. Indiatimes Movies ranks the movie amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films.
