Remembering (belatedly) Vijay Anand on the anniversary of his passing away (23 Feb, 2004).

Really very few artists and film makers in the industry have been as versatile as Vijay Anand has been. Active in the industry since the early 1950s, Vijay is the youngest of the three Anand brothers. He did have an advantage of two elder siblings, Chetan Anand and Dev Anand, having made a place for themselves in the industry, when he also decided to take the plunge. And under the umbrella of his illustrious seniors, he had the opportunity to delve and develop a multi faceted career. In a career that spans more than five decades, Vijay Anand, or Goldie as he was known to his friends, made his mark as a screenplay and dialogue writer, as a director, as a producer, as an editor, and as an actor. His works are limited, given the span of his career, but the quality of his work speaks for itself. The films he has directed are outstanding, and he is acknowledged as the best director for picturization of songs, in the Indian film industry. In this aspect of film making, which is supremely significant given the musical nature of Indian cinema, he is without a peer.

And then there is another facet to his multi-skilled personality, that is not very well known. And that is as a song writer. As per the records, Vijay Anand wrote songs for just one film and that is ‘Chhupa Rustam’, a 1973 production from the banner of Navketan. This is one unique film in his career, in that he directed it and also acted in it. And of the seven songs in this film, he has written three, the remaining four coming from the pen of Neeraj. The music, as always for Navketan, is from the baton of S D Burman. The film did not make any significant impression at the box office. For Dev Anand, the success of ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (1971) was already in the past. And with ‘Chhupa Rustam’, he tried his level best to recreate the magic of ‘Johnny Mera Naam’ (1970), but could not quite pull it off.

‘Chhupa Rustam’ is a thriller and suspense film, loosely based on the novel ‘Fear Is The Key’ by the British author, Alistair MacLean. Adapting it for the Indian screen, and brining in the complications of cross border politics and insurgency, the plot became convoluted, and did not remain convincing. Being the pull of the Navketan brand, the cast of actors for this film is very impressive. It includes Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Vijay Anand, Premnath, Ajit, Prem Chopra, Bindu, Veena, Sajjan, Ak Hangal, Kamraan, Rashid Khan, Shyam Kumar, Sudhir, Uma Dutt, Ratan Gaurang, Nawaab, and host of other actors.

One song from this film is already represented here on this blog. The song, “Jo Main Hota, Ik Toota Taara Teri Raaton Ka”, is a very trendy sound, performed on screen by Bindu and Vijay Anand himself. The song in this post, is no less ear catching. The words and the music combine to make a light and frolicsome exchange between lovers. On screen, it is performed by Dev Anand and Hema Malini, with Prem Chopra also visible in the clip, fretting and fuming over what he thinks is his prize (Hema Malini) in the arms of his rival (Dev Anand). The situation is that A K Hangal, Dev Anand’s father in this film, has discovered an ancient treasure of gold, and has codified in his diary, his findings plus the directions to reach the treasure. He, and his diary fall in the hands of Ajit and his gang, who are also on the lookout for the same treasure.

Despite incentives and torture, AK Hangal does not open his lips to reveal the code. Dev Anand, who in reality is a police officer, is trying to trace his lost father. With his sidekick Jimmy (Vijay Anand) he manages to infiltrate Ajit’s camp. He discovers he father, and also discovers that Ajit is holding Sajjan, a rich businessman, and his family as hostages. Hema Malini is the businessman’s daughter. Prem Chopra, who is the son of Ajit, covets the young lady. But of course, the young lady will fall for the handsome police officer, masquerading as a student of the famous explorer, A K Hangal. He pretends to help Ajit and his gang, by trying to decode the contents of AK Hangal’s diary. And in parallel, he continues to romance his lady love. Prem Chopra objects, Dev Anand feigns annoyance and threatens to stop working on the diary, Ajit relents, Dev A demands that the lady in question be visible to her all the time, and as an act of rubbing salt in the wounds of poor Prem Chopra, the two lovers sing this song together in front of Prem Chopra, who has been made to believe that the lady indeed will be his prize, but for the moment, she must humor Dev A so that he continues to work on decoding the directory. Yes indeed, the plot and the situations got pretty inane in this film.

But for now, let’s put aside the situation, and just enjoy the song. As I said, the words capture the attention, and the music captures the ears. Probably one of those songs that should be heard and not seen. But a very lovely composition by all accounts, especially being one of the only three songs that Vijay Anand has written for the Hindi screen. Enjoy.

Vijay Anand wrote songs for another movie:
You can see it in this video of opening sequences of Movie Ghunghroo Ki Awaaz(at 8:59)(in which he was actor,producer and lyricist)
That movie has got superb songs by R.Burman

I stand corrected. I checked and you are right. Vijay Anand is credited with the lyrics and dialogues for this film ‘Ghungro Ki Awaaz’ from 1981. Generally, the quick reference always is the Geet Kosh, and the current available print volumes come up to 1980 only. So a good lesson for me that I should check beyond 1980 also, to ensure that the statements in the write ups are accurate. Thanks for this correction, Prakash ji. 🙂
