Tujh ko rakhhe raam tujhko allah rakhhe

Posted on: October 5, 2011


“Aankhen” (1968) is a “Saagar Arts International” movie which was directed by Ramanand Saagar. This movie had Dharmendra, Mala Sinha, Mehmood, Madan Puri,Amarnath, Zeb Rehman, Kumkum, Sujit Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Jeevan, Sajjan, Hiralal, Daisy Irani, Parduram, Dhumal, A. A. Khan, Master Rattan, Lalita Pawar etc.

I have discussed three well known songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This song is a “disguise” song in which Mehmood, Mala Sinha and Dhuman are disguised as beggars while they try to find out the location of Dharmendra while roaming around the streets of Hongkong (or is it Singapore ? ).
Correction- It is Beirut. I thank Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh for this information.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey, with voice of Mehmood also interspersed in the song at some places. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Am seeing Dharmendra and Mala Sinha in Aankhen. Just saw the *international FAKIR* song. There is a major *viewers don’t digest* there. A whole stanza is not in Turkey or Beirut where the song is supposed to happen. The surroundings and people in the crowd looks like they are of Mongolian descent. Feels like it was shot in Japan or Singapore where the first part of the movie happens.
Been seeing it for years and noted it for first time today.
Possibly this happens if we see a movie a few times, we start seeing the surroundings instead of the main actors

OK so the location in this song is definitely a mix of two places.

The first part, the first stanza, up to the harbour scene as the trio are in a boat, is definitely Beirut of the 1960s. The faces are very Caucasian. The architecture is very mid eastern, with arches and all. The signage on buildings is mostly English and Arabic.

After this the boat enters the narrow waterways, which remind me of the Chao Phraya waterways in Bangkok. Now we see mongoloid features and Chinese lettering on signage, temples and idols which are very south east asian, and Buddha. I recall this entire scene from my roaming about in Bangkok.

For the third stanza, we are once again back to Beirut, with ruins which are definitely mid eastern architecture, arches and all, and the signage returns to be English, the faces return to being Caucasian,

This is a mix of locations, I think, purposely done by the director to add variety to the picturization.

Good observation, good catch.:)

Thank you Sudhirji for confirming what I saw. Though my remark about it being Japan or Singapore was off the mark.
This reminds me of the “viewers don’t digest” column that used to be a feature in the Filmfare magazine in the 70s & 80s. Readers used to send this kind of articles. Don’t know how to locate the magazine to see if this was mentioned in any issue of that year.
