Kyon Ki (Hindi: क्योंकि, Urdu: کیونکہ, translation: "Because") is a 2005 Bollywood drama film directed by Priyadarshan and starring Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Rimi Sen, Jackie Shroff, Om Puri and Sunil Shetty. It is a remake of the 1959 film Khamoshi.
The film tells the story of a young man named Anand (Salman Khan) who was deeply in love with a girl named Maya (Rimi Sen), who unfortunetly drowns in a swimming pool. Anand is charged for her murder and is taken to a mental asylum. After Maya's death Anand is completely shattered and begins to go crazy. At the mental asylum, there are two main doctors, Dr. Sunil (Jackie Shroff) and Dr. Tanvi Khurana (Kareena Kapoor).
Sunil turns out to be Anand's close childhood friend. Anand makes a commotion everyday and behaves like a child. This upsets Tanvi and she almost removes Anand from the asylum. One day when she finds out about his past, she feels bad for him. She apologizes to him and she starts spending time with him. They soon become good friends and she falls in love with him. Tanvi starts to help cure him and one day he is completely cured. He is normal now, and remembers everything. Anand decides to leave the asylum now. As soon as Tanvi finds out, she runs to Anand and expresses her love to him. He is surprised, but he apreciates her love and decides to stay. He falls in love with Tanvi too. They both are happy with each other. But there is a problem, Tanvi is engaged to someone named Karan (Sunil Shetty).
When Tanvi's father, Dr. Khurana (Om Puri) finds out about her love for Anand he is angered. He tells Tanvi to forget about Anand and leave him. Tanvi refuses, and continues to love Anand. At that time Karan comes back to India. At first, Karan is unaware of Tanvi and Anand's love for each other. But when Karan finds out, he tells Tanvi to go and live with Anand. Meanwhile at the asylum Anand explodes into a violent rage against Dr. Khurana which results in him being lobotomized by Khurana. Sunil and Tanvi arrive at the asylum in order to smuggle Anand out so that he and Tanvi can run away together, however it is too late as Sunil finds out about Anand being lobotomized. Realising that Anand is much better off dead Sunil kills him by suffocating him. A concluding scene is shown in which Tanvi is now a patient at the asylum and has apparently also been lobotomized.
