atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

The main male protagonist of the film Namkeen (1982) is the truck driver Gherulal (Sanjeev Kumar), who arrives in the life of an old woman (Waheeda Rehman) and her three daughters, and how his arrival changes their lives. He being a truck driver is always on the move, thus Gulzar’s musafir songs suit his character quite well.

Gulzar’s third film, as a director, Parichay (1972) has often been accused of being a copy of The Sound of Music (1963). I think that this is too much of an exaggeration, since the only common thing between the stories of the two films being a teacher, who wins over his unruly wards. That is a common theme enough in films and novels. The whole context and the treatment of the story is completely different. All said and done one can’t deny that the song saa re ke saa re has a similarity to doe a deer. The similarity is not in the tune but in the sense that both songs explain the seven notes of music.

Parichay (1972) was Gulzar’s third film as a director. With this film began a fruitful association with R D Burman, who would henceforth give music nearly to all his films, so long the latter lived. Achanak(1973), Mausam (1977), Meera (1979) and Lekin (1999) being the exceptions.

Namkeen (1982) tells us the story of the truck driver Gherulal (Sanjeev Kumar), who arrives in the life of an old woman (Waheeda Rehman) and her three daughters, and how his arrival changes their lives. He falls in love with the elder daughter (Sharmila Tagore), who reciprocates his love. Mitthu (Shabana Azmi) also thinks that he is in love with her and is happy since she has fallen in love with him too. Mitthu, though speech-impaired, writes poems. After Gherulal has gone, she starts spending time in the hills and writing poems. This is one of them.

Namkeen (1982) is the story of an old woman (Waheeda Rehman) and her three daughters (Sharmila Tagore, Shabana Azmi and Kiran Vairale), into which the truck driver Gherulal (Sanjeev Kumar) crashes in. This is a flashback song. The old woman recollects her days as a courtesan, and the times when she was in love with her daughters’ father.

With this song Namkeen (1982) makes its debut on this blog. Namkeen is the story of an old woman and her three daughters, as Gulzar says, in their incomplete family (adhooraa saa parivaar). The elder daughter, Nimki (Sharmila Tagore) has passed the age of marriage (Gulzar’s words, not mine), the middle one Mitthu (Shabana Azmi) is speech-impaired and the youngest is Chinki (Kiran Vairale), who is very cheeky. In this family arrives as a paying guest the truck driver Gherulal.

This is the title song of Mukti (1977). Death and Loss play a central role in the film in different forms. Thus this song is used in bits and parts throughout the film. I have included the complete audio version and also the bits which I could find, which were used in the film. Since these bits give away the ending of the film, a SPOILER ALERT! Please don’t watch the videos of the film, if you don’t want the ending to be revealed.

In Mukti (1977), Shashi Kapoor and Vidya Sinha play a happily married couple, till he is framed for murder and thus gets capital punishment. Thinking that he is dead she relocates to Bombay, where she meets the local goon, who helps the lonely “widow” and her daughter settle down. This other man is played by Sanjeev Kumar. In this song he seems to be drinking so that he can feel brave enough to admit his love to his adored one.

Mukti (1977) stars Shashi Kapoor, Vidya Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar and Bindiya Goswami. Shashi Kapoor plays Vidya Sinha’s husband. This happy couple has a daughter, who would grow up to be Bindiya Goswami. In the happier times of this small family, the father sings a lullaby to his daughter. As usual in films, these happy times don’t last forever and the father goes missing and then it is the mother’s turn to sing the lullaby with a similar mukhdaa but different antaras. Both versions are included here.
