Beta (Translation: Son) is a 1992 Indian Hindi drama film, directed by Indra Kumar and written by Naushir Khatau and Kamlesh Pandey. It featured Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Aruna Irani in pivotal roles.
The movie is an official remake of 1987 Tamil movie Enga Chinna Rasa, whose story was inspired by the Kannada novel Mallammana Pavada, by B. Puttaswamayya, which incidentally had been adapted into a 1969 Kannada movie Mallammana Pavaada, with screenplay by Telugu director P. Pullaiah, based on his 1955 Telugu movie with similar story titled Ardhangi, which was based on Maddipatla Suri’s Telugu translation of Bengali novel Swayamsidda, written by Manilal Banerjee. Swayamsiddha went on to be made into a 1975 Bengali movie of the same name. Ardhangi was remade in Tamil as Pennin Perumai and in Hindi twice as Bahurani in 1963 and as Jyoti in 1981. Enga Chinna Rasa also went on to be remade in Kannada as Annayya, in Telugu as Abbaigaru and in Odia as Santana (1998).
