Koi patthar se naa maare mere deewaane ko

Debuts tend to be an interesting events for lots of people. Not only are they a nervous occasion for the debutant(e) but they are also a talking point for observers. Every aspect of the debut is analysed.

Was it as per expectations, did it fall short or did it perhaps even surpass expectations? Does the person have what it takes to make it big or is he/she going to end up as an also-ran?

Whether it was Sanjay Dutt in Rocky (1981), Kumar Gaurav in Love Story (1981) or Hrithik Roshan in Kaho Na Pyar Hai (2000), they have all gone through this intense scrutiny. In their cases probably even more so because they were sons of celebrities. Comparisons with their illustrious fathers would be inevitable.

Actually, come to think of it, this interest in debuts and nervousness on the part of the debutant(e) applies to all fields, not just acting. In cricket, for example, a batsman making his international debut often has butterflies in his stomach when he goes out to bat. His first objective is usually to get off the mark as soon as possible.

I have always found it interesting to hear stories of established actors talking of their first film. The eary days of their journey, so to speak. Many of them are candid and modest enough to acknowledge their nerves and thank the director or co-star for making them feel at ease and showing patience with them.

Talking of debutants and co-stars, one of the actors who has acted opposite the most number of debutant heroines is Rishi Kapoor. Unless somebody else has broken that record recently, he holds that record for Hindi movies. At least that is what I heard on a talkshow with Rishi (I think it was Koffee with Karan) sometime back.

His most famous co-star debut is probably his own debut movie (if you do not count the boy role he played in Mera Naam Joker). I am talking about the mega-hit Bobby (1973) where Rishi was introduced as a hero by his father, Raj Kapoor, and cast alongside a very young Dimple Kapadia.

And then there was Laila Majnu (1976) where Rishi was cast opposite another newcomer, Ranjeeta Kaur.

Now, Laila Majnu was made at a time when Rishi himself was just an upcoming actor. He had had the odd hit movie (Khel Khel Mein, Rafoo Chakkar) but could hardly be considered a serious marketable proposition. Certainly not in the non-glamourous, non-dancing, Arab-dress clad role of Majnu.

And Ranjeeta , inspite of her FTII background, was a rookie too.

And the story of Laila Majnu, for all its enduring folklore pull, could have been considered somewhat high-risk for the mid-70s. I do not know how previous Laila Majnu versions fared (I do know there was a Shammi Kapoor-Nutan version, which I think bombed) but I would not have put my money on a mid-70s version appealing to the audience of that time.

On top of that, Madan Mohan, the music director of the film, died before the movie was released and it was upto Jaidev to complete the music for the film.

But indeed inscrutable are the ways of Indian film-going audiences. The same audiences that thronged to movie halls to see an unheard-of devotional movie, Jai Santoshi Maa, and a zero-star-cast, albeit reasonably pleasant movie, Geet Gaata Chal, the previous year, now seemed to take fancy to this oft-repeated tale of two separated lovers, Laila and Majnu.

The movie became a big hit, certainly way bigger than anybody had anticipated. HS Rawail (who I remember best for Mere Mehboob) must have been thrilled.

But there is also a flip side to a successful debut. It brings with it high expectations. I remember Ranjeeta being talked about in glowing terms after the movie and as the next most exciting heroine out there. Somehow, she never quite made it to a star level, although she did have a few other movies like Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se and a few movies opposite Mithun (or maybe THAT is why she did not make it as a star. ;-) ).

Laila Majnu’s success probably had a lot to do with its music. It is a pity that Madan Mohan died before the movie could be released. He would have been very happy to see how much his creations were appreciated.

The most popular song of the movie was without doubt, “Husn haazir hai”. Sung, perhaps aptly by Lata Mangeshkar, considering it is must have been among Madan Mohan’s last few compositions.
I am not sure whether Jaidev had a role to play in this but it does not really matter.

It is a lovely song – and as if the Lata-MadanMohan combo is not attraction enough, the lyrics are by Sahir Ludhianvi. Enough said!

I remember seeing this movie in Bhubaneswar. My family had gone on an outing there. When Ranjeeta appeared on screen to sing this song, the front rows in the hall went delirious!!! Everytime she said “Koi patthar se”, the crowds would dance and whistle! Oh, the joys of watching a movie in a film hall, especially in a B-city. Am not sure these sort of things happen in multiplexes!

Anyway here is “husn haazir hai” where Laila tries to stave off an angry crowd that is beating up her lover, Majnu. She tries to reason, she tries to negotiate, she tries appealing to their better sense. Finally it looked like it worked. Sahir’s lyrics did the job. :D

Enjoy the song.


Song-Husn haazir hai muhabbat ki sazaa paane ko…koi patthar se naa maare mere deewaane ko (Laila Majnu) (1976) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi,MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

Husn haazir hai muhabbat ki sazaa paaney ko
Husn haazir hai muhabbat ki sazaa paaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko
Husn haazir hai mohabbat ki sazaa paaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko

Mere deewaane ko itnaa na sataao logon
Mere deewaane ko itnaa na sataao logon
Ye to veheshi hai, tumhi hosh mein aao logon
Ye to veheshi hai, tumhi hosh mein aao logon
Bahut ranjoor hai ye, ghamon se choor hai ye
Bahut ranjoor hai ye, ghamon se choor hai ye
Khuda ka khauf khao, bahut majboor hai ye
Khuda ka khauf khao, bahut majboor hai ye
Kyun chaley aaye ho
Kyun chaley aaye ho, bebas pe sitam dhaane ko
Koi patthar se
Haan, koi patthar se na maare mere deewaane ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko

Mere jalwon ki khata hai jo ye deewaana hua
Mere jalwon ki khata hai jo ye deewaana hua
Main hoon mujrim ye agar hosh se begaana hua
Main hoon mujrim ye agar hosh se begaana hua
Mujhe sooli chaddha do, ki sholon mein jalaa do
Mujhe sooli chaddha do, ki sholon mein jalaa do
Koi shikhwaa nahin hai, jo jee chaahey sazaa do
Koi shikhwaa nahin hai, jo jee chaahey sazaa do
Baksh do isko
Baksh do isko, main taiyaar hoon mit jaaney ko
Koi patthar se
Haan, koi patthar se na maarey mere deewaane ko
koi patthar se na maarey mere deewaane ko

Pattharon ko bhi wafaa phool banaa sakti hai
Pattharon ko bhi wafaa phool banaa sakti hai
Ye tamaasha bhi sar-e-aam dikhaa sakti hai
Ye tamaasha bhi sar-e-aam dikhaa sakti hai
Lo ab patthar uthaao, zamaane ke Khudaaon
Lo ab patthar uthaao, zamaane ke Khudaaon
Tumhen main aazmaaoon, mujhe tum aazmaao
Tumhen main aazmaaoon, mujhe tum aazmaao
Ab dua arsh pe
Ab dua arsh pe, jaati hai asar laaney ko
Ab dua arsh pe, jaati hai asar laaney ko
Koi patthar se
Haan, ko patthar se na maarey mere deewaaney ko
Koi patthar se na maarey mere deewaaney ko
Husn haazir hai muhabbat ki sazaa paaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko
Koi patthar se naa maarey mere deewaaney ko
