Bade achche lagte hain

Posted on: June 27, 2012


“Baalika Badhu” (1976) which means “Child Bride” was a remake of a Bangla movie of the same name which was made in 1950s and where Mausami Chatterji had played the title role. Mausami Chatterji, after looking at Rajni Sharma felt that Rajni Sharma looked much more immature (and thus more suitable) for the role of the child bride.

Child marriage, which is outlawed in India after independence was quite common in the past and the movie is about that. In “Baalika Badhu” (1976), Sachin and Rajni Sharma (both teenagers at that time) played the lead roles.

Here is a lovely song from this movie. This song is sung by Amit Kumar for Sachin. Rajni Sharma utters a few monosyllables and thus gets credited for having sung this song. R D Burman’s voice can also be heard in the song.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. R D Burman, whose birth anniversary falls today (27th june) composed this song.

Song is lovely, pne of my favourites. Even though the song was a hit, Amit Kumar didnt become as successful as his father. Reasons? I remember the movie also, watched it on DD many years back. It was simple and nice.

Probably because he sounded like his father, and was competing against his father. He also started singing at early age, so relatively was a veteran in the sense that his voice did not get used for newcomers after Kumar Gaurav, and Kumar Gaurav flopped. Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Sanjay Dutt all used Kishore Kumar when he was still around and only briefly used Amit Kumar after Kishore’s death and before Kumar Sanu arrived. Aamir Khan started with Udit Narayan and Salman started with S P Balasubramaniam, so there was never a scope for Amit Kumar. He would have been more successful during late 70s to mid 80s if he did not have to compete against his father.

your analysis sounds true. even though he had immense talent like his father, he didnt succeed. unfortunate fellow. heard that he was a heavy drinker, is it correct?

I havent heard about his drinking problem. But its a fact that once he moved in with his father at age of 14, he stayed there thru all those times when his father was first married to Yogeeta Bali and then Leena Chandavarkar. Even after Kishore’s death in 87, Amit continued to live with Leena and her son Sumeet until about 2003, when he finally got married at age of 51. Here’s an excerpt from an interview of him in 2005:
————————————————————————–
You never got your dues from Bollywood. Comment.
I don’t hate Bollywood. I got disillusioned. Though I have given many hits here, I have opted out of the rat race. There is too much politics here.

My father had once told me that to survive here you have to wear a mask and I can’t do that. I am too old to indulge in that. I would rather sit at home. I am happy with my shows. But I would like to direct the music for a film because I love composing.

–So may be he got into drinking when he was disillusioned.
