“Neeli Aankhen” (1962) was a B grade movie that was soon forgotten and little is known about this movie by now.

Thanks to our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, we know all the details of this obscure movie. Here is what he has to say about this movie:

NEELI AANKHEN-1962 was a mystery film having a double role of the Hero Ajit. Some directors believed that a double role added to the mystery of the film.

Actually it was nothing like that, as the audience had long back become so intelligent that the moment the double role character appeared on the screen, they knew who it was and also waited for the ‘exposure’, which they knew, will come only in the last 1 or 2 reels. If the other aspects of the film like story ,acting, music etc was good enough, audience would pardon the director for the double role, or else, the film would face negative publicity forcing it to withdraw from the theatre sooner.

Obviously Neeli Ankhen belonged to the second category. The story was weak, direction was average, acting was very casual and nominal and the end was predictable.

Sheela(Shakila) was a young lady who loved Ajit(Ajit) a poor poet. She was the daughter of the multi millionaire Seth Rai Bahadur(Ramayan Tiwari-most unsuitable for this role. His face was such that,come what may,he could never look a wealthy Seth !). Sethji, though very rich,always looked for a burried treasure of Diamonds.The police was also on its look out and a gang of city criminals was also after it. Sheela does not know all this. She is busy in singing love songs and enjoying life.

Sheela is shocked when Seth ji brings Dilip-son of his London based old and late friend. Dilip(Again Ajit-who else ?) is a terrific look alike of Ajit, her lover. Premi ji a noted Astrologer predicts that Seth ji will face dire consequences soon and also predicts that Dilip will murder somebody. Sheela is worried and appoints Punjwani(Johnny Walker) a suitor of Sheela herself, to keep an eye on Dilip. Soon Seth ji is murdered and she suspects Dilip,who disappears.

After lot of intrigue, mystery,fights and chases, it is (finally) revealed that Dilip and Ajit is same(audience knew it all the while), that he is a CID officer and Premi ji is the murderer. Seth ji, Premijee and a partner had looted the diamonds and Premi suspected Sethji.
Anyway, Premi ji is arrested, the Diamonds are recovered and Sheela and Ajit (or is it Dilip ?) marry happily.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth song from the movie. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus. the song is picturised as a club/party song on Helen. Some of the well known dancers of those days, including our by now well known Edwina is also visible in the picturisation of this song. This is a villain’s den song too, with many baddies visible in the picturisation,along with Ajit

Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music was composed by Dattaram.

The audio is of poor quality in the video . The quality of recorded version is somewhat better.

I notice that there are some changes in the words in the two versions. The video version has the word “badal” where as the record version has the word “Bahak”/”machal”.

Thus the line jo “bahak” gaye qadam in audio version becomes jo “badal” gaye qadam and dil agar “machal” gaya in audio version becomes dil agar “bahal” gaya in the video version. The Indian censors those days were known to be overzealous vis a vis the lyrics of video versions of songs and they would often order change of certain words in songs. However, the recorded version of the song would continue to sport their original lyrics with impunity. The censors apparently felt that listening to the video version of the songs containing “objectionable” words was “harmful” for movie goers whereas listening to the recorded version of the song , “objectionable” words and all was alright. In what way are “bahak” and “machal” objectionable and not “bahal” is something that only the censors of those days can explain.

I have given the lyrics of the audio version below. Please replace “bahak”/ “Machal” by “badal” to get the video version of the lyrics. 🙂

Could it be the first time song with replaceable lyrics.
na wo bahekna na jaane
na wo machalna na jaane
tazzub hai
wo badalna na bhi na chaahe
kis miite ke bane hai
khuda bhi na jaane!!!
Reminds me of the replacement of word to balaatkar in 3 Idiots
