“Johny Mera Naam” (1970) was a Trimurti Films production. It was produced by Gulshan Rai and directed by Vijay Anand. The movie had Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Prem Nath, Randhawa, Padma Khanna, Jeevan, Jagadish Raj, Sulochana Latkar, Pran, I.S.Johar, Ifthekar, Sajjan, Shaam Kumar, Tabassum, Dulari, Madhup Sharma, Anil, Chander, Mridula, Radheshyam, Bihari, V.Gopal, Keshav Rana, Subroto, Baby Reshma, Saudagar Singh, Hardith Singh etc in it.

The movie was a hit movie and its music had played an important role in the success of the movie. I had not watched the movie during its initial run since good kids were not supposed to watch too many movies those days. 🙂 I watched this movie during its rerun sometime in late 1970s/ early 1980s and I was quite dazzled by the movie even at that time. It was easily one of the better directed Hindi movies that one can come across.

Five songs from this movie have been discussed ion the past. All of them were extremely popular songs and remain so to this date. When I watched the movie, I realised that the song were picturised quite nicely and imaginatively too.

Today (22 january 2014) is the birth anniversary of Vijay Anand (22 january 1934-23 february 2004) , the director of this movie. On this occasion, here is the sixth and final song from the movie.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Padma Khanna as a cabarat cum seduction song. Randhawa, a gang member of Premnath decides to turn over a new leaf at the insistence of his lover Padma Khanna and the two run away, only to be captured by the other gang members of Premnath. Padma Khanna gives this performance for Premnath in an attempt to try and save the life of Randhawa. A “majboor”” woman offering herself to Premnath for the sake of the life of her lover- the picturisation, including the dialogues that precede the song are far too explicit and suggestive for my comfort. That is the reason that I cannot bear to watch the picturisation of this song. So I would rather listen to this song than watch its picturisation.

But duty is duty. 🙂 So here is this sixth and final song from “Johny Mera Naam” (1970). The song is sung superbly by Asha Bhonsle. The lyrics by Rajinder Krishan make it one of the most hard hitting cabarat cum seduction songs in Hindi movies. The same Rajinder Krishan had also come up with another memorable song which was sung not by Asha Bhonsle but by Lata !. The song was Aa jaane jaan tere liye main aas lagaaye. Rajinder Krishan of course could come up with great lyrics with original ideas in them for any genre of songs.

Kalyanji Anandji composed the music.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

A great opening and the continued success of Johnny Mera Naam was, in a way, responsible for the utter flop of another great movie Mera Naam Joker. Although, in re-runs Joker is the best grossing movie for R K Films to date.

I never realised that the success of Johny Mera Naam could have been responsible for the flop show of Mera Naam Joker.

Atul, I remember discussing this with my mother, who had read it in many film journals/magazines, about it.

As per Wikipedia, ‘Johny Mera Naam’ was released on November 17, 1970 and ‘Mera Naam Joker’ on December 18, 1970.

Also, Johnny Mera Naam was the first in its genre, thanks to Vijay Anand, to have the game changing (baazi palatna) themes, which were the hallmark of the films of 70s and 80s.

I think censor officials heavily edited/scissored the song.While watching,I get a feeling that the song is badly chopped in between. Any confirmations ?

Thank you, Sadana d Kamat Ji. This shows that JMN had full 4 weeks of viewership and word of mouth to be the cause of MNJ’s downfall.

I had seen both these films when they were released. If my memory serves me right, ‘Johny Mera Naam’ was released without much pre-release fun fare while ‘Mera Naam Joker’ was released with much of pre-release hypes, probably created more by media than R K Films.

‘Johny Mera Naam’ was a fast-paced thriller like T-20.cricket match. The first part of ‘Mera Naam Joker’ was like opening batsmen giving a solid and crisp start in a Test Match. However, the film’s next two parts were like a dull Test Match with subsequent batsmen not keeping up to the expectations of the spectators.

Apart from this, the length of the film was an issue with the audience. After some years, I again saw the edited version of ‘Mera Naam Joker’ and I liked it.

The word of mouth played an important role in the box office collections of these two films – Johny Mera Naam revived from it and ‘Mera Naam Joker’ got dumped from it on its first release.

Despite a great thriller story I always dislike to view the movie because of this song due to its vulgar picturization. Well, but hats-off to the lyricists of golden era who never compromise with words.
Rajendra Krishna is the topmost underrated lyricist of Bollywood. In real sense, he is the Shailendra of small banners. While Shailendra is not much Urdu expert, RK had a very good command on Urdu. He is the primary choice of C. Ramchandra and Madan Mohan but both these music directors was not associated with big banners RK’s work never highlighted. RK is the only lyricist who penned all songs for movie COLLEGE GIRL (1960) for SJ while except this all films of SJ have one, more or all songs by their regular lyricists Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri right from Barsat (1949). After Shailendra’s death, Sachhai (1969) is such second film where all songs penned by RK. RK is also the third most used lyricist by SJ. He also worked with all top MDs like Naushad, Hushlal Bhagatram, OP Nayyar, Khaiyyam, SDB, Roshan, Chitragupt etc also tuned up well with next generation MDs like KA, LP, RDB etc. He is the one such lyricist who penned songs for almost all the themes and situations of life. He is more active during 1947 to 1981 after then he penned lyrics for few films only. He contributed songs for near about 250 films whereas he also write screen-play for more than 100 films.
