China Gate is a 1998 Bollywood film directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. It is a "humble tribute to the late Akira Kurosawa ", crediting Seven Samurai (1954) as its inspiration and starred Samir Soni in his film debut. It was partly influenced by Ramesh Sippy's Sholay (1975).
The film is famous for the song "Chamma Chamma", sung by Alka Yagnik, composed by Anu Malik, and featuring Urmila Matondkar dancing to it. The song was subsequently used in Baz Luhrmann's Hollywood musical film, Moulin Rouge! (2001). The role played by Mukesh Tiwari as cruel Jageera was well appreciated.
