Desh Premee (English translation The Patriot) is a 1982 Hindi film directed by Manmohan Desai and starring Amitabh Bachchan in a dual role alongside an ensemble cast including Hema Malini, Navin Nischol, Parveen Babi, Shammi Kapoor, Uttam Kumar, Parikshit Sahni, Premnath, Sharmila Tagore and Amjad Khan. It was the fifth collaboration of Manmohan Desai and Amitabh Bachchan. The film was average at the box office, however both critically and commercially, it failed to re-create the magic of previous Amitabh-Manmohan Desai films.
The film is dedicated to the memory of Mohammed Rafi who sang the film's title song and one of its cast members Uttam Kumar, both of whom died two years before the film was released. This was the only film for which music director Laxmikant was also a playback singer for one song.
