This article is written by Arunkumar Deshmukh, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

There is a child in every man. That is why fantasy, magic, mystery, puzzles and games are loved by adults too. To satisfy man’s curious and child-like nature, many literary creations were undertaken by well known authors from time immemorial.

Indian and Greek Mythology and Arabian Night Stories are sureshot indicators that fantasy has always fascinated man. A man with 10 heads, a man with lion’s head, half Horse half man and other variations of human body, flying carpets, talking trees and animals were fragments of human imagination to entertain eagerly awaiting adults at all times.

Certain Gods(Indian, Greek and Roman)had the power to fly and become visible and invisible, at will. When you read mythological stories, you are simply amazed at the imaginative powers of our ancestors !

It is no wonder, then, that when Films started moving and talking on the screen many versions of these stories were made and presented to the willing audiences all over the world. Man has always been extremely fascinated by invisibility and so one of the most popular stories on the screen has been about The Invisible Man.

H G Wells, who wrote mystery novels like “The Time Machine”,serialised a novel in the pages of “Pearson’s Weekly” in 1897.It was published as ‘” The Invisible Man.” on the same year.

Like novels of Jules Verne(1828-1905) who wrote ‘20000 leagues under the water”,”Journey to the centre of earth”, “From the earth to the Moon” and ” Around the World in 8 Days”, H G Wells’ novels were also popular and a movie was made on his novel in 1933 titled ” The Invisible Man”. It was directed by James Whale. The film was so popular that its remakes and versions coninued to be made and the numbers 1940 to 2006 add up to over 22 films.

Would Hindi film industry lag behind in it ? No Way !

The story of The Invisible Man also enchanted our producers and our first film on the invisible man was made as ‘ MR. X ‘ in 1938. It was made by Prakash pictures. It was directed by Dwaraka Khosla and the music director was Shankar Rao Vyas. The lead pair was Jayant and Rattan bai.

Another film ‘MR. X’ was produced in 1957, starring Ashok kumar, Nalini Jaywant and Johnny Walker. N.Dutta’s music win this movie was a hit and the Rock n Roll song ‘Laal laal gaal’ became an iconic song.

The third film was ‘Mr.X in Bombay’-1964 with Kishore Kumar. Here too the songs became quite popular.

After a gap of almost 25 years, a film on this theme was made by SHEKHAR KAPOOR- MR. INDIA-1987.

SHEKHAR KAPOOR was born on 6-12-1945 at Lahore. His father was a leading Doctor and mother was a Journalist cum stage actress.

He studied in Delhi and on his father’s insistence became a Chartered Accountant. He served in a MNC and then worked as a Management Consultant for few years in London.

He came back to India and started working in small roles in films like Ishq Ishq Ishq, Jaan Hazir Hai, Toote khilone, Jeena Yahaan, Khanjar etc.

He entered Direction with Masoom-1983, but he came into his own as a director with Mr.India-87. Then came Joshiley, Time machine and Bandit Queen. He directed English films like Elizabeth, The four feathers, Elizabeth-2 Golden Age, New York-I love you, and three Apples fell from Heaven.

During this period too he continued working in films like Bindiya Chamkegi,Falak, Gawaahi, Drishti, Nazar, Saatwaan Aasmaan, and Vishwaroopam.

He also produced 2 films- Dil se-88 and The Guru-2002.

Mr.India-1987 became famous not only due to its theme, casting and direction, but also because of its music. It’s songs became very popular,especially ‘Hawa Hawai…’ done by Sridevi on screen.

Here is the synopsis of MR. India, as it appears on Wiki-

The film opens with the revelation that violence has escalated in India, in which the central villain is Mogambo (Amrish Puri). Mogambo is a brilliant yet insane General whose goal is to conquer India. From his island, modeled after the island of Dr. No, Mogambo monitors the evil-doings perpetrated by his henchmen. All his subordinates know the formal salute “Hail Mogambo!”, emphasizing his complete authority over his minions.

Arun Verma (Anil Kapoor) is an orphan and a street-walking violinist who rents a large, old house. There, he houses a dozen or so orphaned children and takes care of them with the help of his cook and caretaker Calendar (Satish Kaushik). Arun is poor, owes debts to the local food merchant Roopchand (Harish Patel), and is overdue to pay the landlord Maniklal (Yunus Parvez). In spite of these problems, Arun tries to look on the bright side of every situation. As time goes by, Calendar reminds Arun that the cost of running the home continues to rise. Arun decides to rent out the room on the first floor. When he goes to the local newspaper to run an advertisement for the room, he meets Seema Sohni (Sridevi) and makes her his tenant. They get off to a rocky start but Seema eventually becomes friends with everyone.

One day, Arun receives a mysterious letter from a family friend, Dr. Sinha (Ashok Kumar), who reveals that Arun’s late father had created a device that would make its user invisible. With the directions in the letter, Arun, accompanied by his ward Jugal, enters his father’s laboratory and finds the device. The device is in the shape of a gold watch worn on the wrist. When it is activated, it makes the wearer invisible to the naked eye. This invisibility is pervasive except for one flaw: when red light is focused on the wearer, he becomes visible. Arun and Jugal decide to keep the device a secret between them. Seema goes to a lavish party hosted by Teja and Daaga, where she performs a song under the guise of a Hawaiian dancer. She is nearly killed by the criminals after her disguise is spoiled, but Arun invisibly rescues her, styling himself “Mr. India”. Thereafter, Seema falls in love with her rescuer, though not attracted to his civilian alter ego.

Mr. India later defeats Mogambo’s men in several encounters, foiling their criminal plans. Mogambo’s computer-aided intelligence teams reveal that Mr. India’s specific actions against the gambling den bring benefit to Arun Verma. Mogambo has bombs disguised as toys, planted in places where children can find them. One of the bombs kills Arun’s youngest and dearest charge, Tina, driving Arun to immense grief. Arun, Seema, Calendar, and the surviving children are brought before Mogambo. Mogambo tortures them so that they reveal Mr. India’s true identity and the location of the invisibility device. Arun eventually volunteers to this when Mogambo threatens to drop two children into a pit of acid; but because Arun has dropped the device, he cannot become invisible to prove himself. Frustrated, Mogambo has them sent into the dungeons.

However, they are all able to escape. Mogambo activates four missiles, which are poised to destroy all of India. Arun confronts him, and the two fight. When Arun has overcome Mogambo, he deactivates the launch of the missiles. Arun, Seema, Calendar, and the children escape, while Mogambo’s fortress is destroyed. Mogambo himself dies in the fire.

Arun’s dual identity remains a secret to most people, while he returns to his former life.

Here is a parody song from this interesting film, which is equally enjoyable.

Thanks Arunji. Aadhi Raat Ke Baad (65) is another such movie that comes to mind. Its sort of a sequel to Mr X (57) where Ashok Kumar once again comes back as the invisible man.

bluefire ji,
I remember this film-Aadhi raat ke baad-65.
I dont think Ashok kumar is invisible in it.in fact no one is invisible.It was a murder mystery,where the dead persons are not dead actually and come back to tell the truth etc.

bluefire ji,
When I posted my reply to you,I had mistakenly thought about some other film of similar type of name.Then I realised that your comments are always fact based,so I hastily went back to my notes and then I realised my error. Before I could correct myself,you had posted this VDO.
I am sorry for this lapse.
You seem to be right here.I have NOT seen this film,but obviously looks like a take-off on Mr.X-1957.
Thanks for adding to my information.

Arunji, like always, i just wanted to point out something that would add value to ur stellar work. Please dont be sorry. I read somewhere that this movie was a sequel to Mr X. Since we dont make many sequels, i got curious and ended up watching it just few months ago. Hence i remembered. The things that u remember from 40s and 50s and share with us based on ur memory and notes that u have preserved, its a great service to movie lovers. I may not always express it with “thanks” and all those words like others would, the truth is I really cant put it in words how i feel about ur contribution. Everyday there is something new to learn from ur posts, its unbelievable. Regards.

For those interested in trivia-

All songs featured in the parody song of Mr. India were from Laxmikant Pyarelal movies.

Just a correction you need to make Atulji- The lyricist of Mr. India is Javed Akhtar and not Anand Bakshi. (Though most songs featured in this song had original lyrics by Anand Bakshi, the lyrics of parody version were written by Javed Akhtar.
