Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ae maine kasam li

Posted on: November 8, 2008


Dev Anand was one of the leading heart throbs of Bollywood in 1950s and 60s. It is my personal opinion that he should have retired from playing teenage hero in 1960s as soon as he turned 40.

But he continued to play the role of teenager with actors younger than him playing his parents. Most of his movies after “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” failed because of his insistence to play teenage hero in his 50s, when younger heroes were already around to play such roles.

“Tere Mere sapne” was a contemporarty movie of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” where Dev Anand acted opposite Mumtaz. No idea about the fate of the movie, but its songs did well.

Here is one of the nice songs from this movie. Inclusion of this song calls for introducing a new tag viz “bicycle” song. Actually in this song the girl rides on the front bar of a bicycle, which to my mind is the most romantic use of a bicycle that Bollywood movie makers have devised. Girl riding on the pillion of a motorbike, which was later devised in “Bobby” comes a distant second.

I have some more songs in this “bicycle” songs with the girl riding on the front bar. I am thinking of opening separate tag for this category of songs, but I wonder what should be the name of this tag. May be “girl on front bar of bicycle” will do ? Too long, I think. Any suggestions ?

saans teri madir madir jaise rajnigandhaa
pyaar teraa madhur madhur chaandni ki gangaa

janam janam, tere liye, badli hamne kaayaa
nahin honge judaa
nahin honge judaa

I do agree that Dev Anand used to look an odd hero when casting himself opposite younger heroines like Zeenat and Tina. Even that was OK – the mismatches got progressively worse when he continued into the 1980s.

But I am a big fan of Dev saab and will excuse him his acting excesses. He is just very young at heart, that is all.

Coming to this movie, Tere Mere Sapne, it flopped. Badly.
And that was a big disappointment to Dev Anand & Vijay Anand. The movie was actually a very good movie – but a very serious movie. Not a timepass, halka-phulka movie. The audience rejected it. I liked it a lot.

It is a comment on the medical profession and on idealism.
At that time there may have been some idealism in the profession – am not sure about it anymore.

Nice song, of course. And thanks for posting.

I enjoyed watching Tere Mere Sapne. It was much later that I read The Citadel by AJ Cronin, and even later that I found out that the movie was based on the book. An Indian version of foreign books can only be called ‘loosely adapted’, as a lot of things are changed.

Mumtaz and Dev Anand looked well together. Mumtaz had a meaty role here, as she progresses from a simple schoolteacher who marries for love. She has to suffer a miscarriage and also see her husband turn into a man who has sold his soul for money.

Maybe this complicated story did not go well with the audiences. But I do remember liking the movie a lot.
