Lyrics(Provided by Khyati Bhatt)

hmm
kabhi kabhi
sapna
lagta hai
kabhi kabhi
sapna lagta hai
kabhi ye sab
apna lagta hai
tum samjhaa do
man ko kya samjhaaoon
kabhi kabhi
sapna lagta hai
kabhi ye sab
apna lagta hai
tum samjhaa do
man ko kya samjhaaoon

kabhi kabhi sapna lagta hai

mujhe agar baanhon mein bhar lo
shaayad tum ko chain miley
mujhe agar baanhon mein bhar lo
shaayad tum ko chain miley

chain to us din khoya maine
jis din tum se nain miley
phir bhi ye achha lagta hai
magar abhi
sapna lagta hai
tum samjhaa do
man ko kya samjhaaoon
kabhi kabhi sapna lagta hai

chehre par hai
aur ek chehra
kaise use hataaoon
mera sach gar tum apnaalo
janam janam tar jaaoon
aise sab sachha lagta hai
sab ka sab
sapna lagta hai
tum samjhaa do
man ko kya samjhaaoon
kabhi kabhi sapna lagta hai
kabhi ye sab
apna lagta hai
tum samjhaa do
man ko kya samjhaaoon

kabhi kabhi
sapna lagta hai
kabhi ye sab
apna lagta hai
tum samjhaa do
man ko kya samjhaaoon
kabhi kabhi
sapna lagta hai

This was a different sort of a film. It was tragic, but nice.

I have seen this movie. It is based on some Bangla novel. Its a story of impersonation. Girish Karnad a station master of some obscure station is faced with an abondoned dead body of person in a railway compartment, who happen to look a ditto copy of himself. Among his belongings he espies a diary where minutest details of the dead, his wife, his family are noted. He thought why not take his place and present himself a the husband of Hema Malini. He is accepted by everyone. To his credit he does not touch her till the end when we confesses.
Question that is bothering is : Is there a wife who cannot distinguishes his real husband from a phony one. I mean there are so many tell-tale marks on the body which are give-aways. What do you say?

It is a long time since the husband has gone away and if I remember right, the wife doesn’t have any chance to look at her husband properly since he leaves her and his family in the bridal night itself.
Anyway when everybody agrees he is her husband and alongwith her longing for her husband’s return, she can’t but accept him as her husband.
I read in a biography on Hema that her mother produced the film and made Girish Karnad star in it, because she wanted Hema and Girish to come near and was hoping that they would marry.

I had also thought that something like this may have happened in the story.

Nitinbhai, Harvyji and Arunji, thanks for shaving my $. 🙂 I was thinking of buying the dvd ye sochkar ki gaana achha hai, kalaakar badhiya hai, then movie needs to be good if not best.

the movie is quite good for people with a taste for true cinema ,i wonder whether basu chatterjee knew abour ”return of martin guerre ”the similar french movie with gerard depardieu ,it was cloned in 90s by hollywood as a much inferior mrs .sommersby with jodie foster and gere .the theme of stolen identity and matrimonial fidelity is very intriguingly handled ,as ava suri said it’s tragic so not everyone can digest it in days of ‘ek tha tiger ‘and ‘rowdy rathore ‘,i definitely loved this song and the movie too when i saw them in 90s and i had seen both the english and french versions earlier .the martin guerre story is documented historical truth so it happenned in reality and as they say truth is stranger than fiction .

Like

since the movie was released in i979 then it has to be presumed this is the first version and the french and american versions were made latter ,as basu chatterjee movies were popular in the festival circuit in seventies and eighties globally i have to conclude this was the original inspiration behind the cinematic versions of martin guerre , even if it came from a bengali book .i had mentioned this in my review of hema malini on mouthshut .com a few years ago under my pseudonym of jbz7879 ,it’s nice to see the vhs video here of the forgotten classic
