“Be imaan” (1972) had bagged as many as seven filmfare awards, and that included the best actor award for Manoj Kumar for his performance in the film.

No Manoj Kumar film was released the next year. In 1974, Manoj Kumar hit the jackpot with the blockbuster ‘Roti Kapada aur Makaan’. ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’ of this movie toped the ‘Binaca Geetmala’ final list and the film was ranked no.1 at the ‘box office’. This movie was followed by ‘Sanyasi’ in 1975. Some songs of this movie were popular during its time. The film also turned out to be a hit ranking 5th in the list of ‘top Hindi films of 1975’.

The Manoj Kumar movie of 1976 that hit the movie halls was produced by Madan Mohla.

In his career, Madan Mohla produced films like ’Aasra-1966’, ‘Sharafat-1970’, ‘Raja Jani-1972’,’Humlaa-1992’ and ‘Chhupa- Rustam-A musical thriller-2001’. Except the 2001 film ‘Chhupa Rustam …’ all his films have music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. While I am not much aware of the box office performance or musical performance of ‘Aasra-1966’, one song from ‘Sharafat-1970’ –‘sharafat chhod di Maine …’ was very popular. ‘Raja Jani-1972’ was a ‘hit’ and its songs had been popular too.

Of the films Madan Mohla produced, ‘Aasraa-1966’ was directed by Satyen Bose, ‘Sharafat-1970’ was directed by Asit Sen, and ‘Raja Jani-1970’ was directed by Mohan Segal.

For this 1976 movie, Madan Mohla teamed up with his regular music composers Laxmikant Pyarelal and his regular heroine Hema Malini (‘Sharafat’ and ‘Raja Jani’). He signed up Manoj Kumar as the hero of this movie.

This movie was the first and only occasion where Madan Mohla directed a movie in his career.

The film turned out to be a Hit and its music was also popular.

This movie was ‘Dus Numbri’!!

***
The film had Manoj Kumar, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Premnath, Kamini Kaushal, etc. Produced by Madan Mohla and Pradyuman Mohla and Directed by Madan Mohla, it was written by Dhruva Chatterjee and S.Ali Raza.

As far as my vague memory allows me to remember, posters of Manoj Kumar wearing the classic ‘goggles’, the ‘beret’ hat, the jersey having number 10 on it, and jacket worn over it, is what immediately comes to mind when this movie is discussed.

The film was ranked seventh among the top hit films of 1976 (no.1 was ‘Kabhi-Kabhi). As per information on ‘wiki’ – The film was the top hit of 1976. The film ranked #10 for the 1970s decade and is also ranked #47 among all time hits.

To recreate the nostalgia and bring back memories of ‘moviegoers’ and for those who grew up in the ‘seventies’, today we mark the debut of this film on our blog.

Earlier I had thought about introducing this film with another song from this movie. However when I shared two title songs from the 70’s viz. ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’ and ‘Fakira’ (which fall in my favorite category of ‘philosophical’, ‘song with a messasge’) I thought that I should share this title song of “Dus Numberi” too.

BTW, we tend to have a title song in a typical Hindi movie. My personal feeling is that this trend was there in majority of the films produced in the Seventies (regulars of the blog can correct me/share their comments on this), and many title songs had been popular also (here ‘title song’ means having the ‘title name’ in the lyrics of the song’)

‘Dus Numbri’ was released on 17th April 1976- exactly 38 years ago. I think I must have watched it during the summer vacations then, and since the film was a ‘hit’, it must have at least 100 days or 15 weeks run at the theatres as it used to during those years.

Today’s song stood 10th in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year and it was the only Laxmikant Pyarelal composition among the top 10 songs on Binaca Geetmala that year. In fact this was the only Laxmikant Pyarelal composition among the top 20 songs of Binaca Geetmala that year. The next popular song from the movie, viz. ‘mujhe dard rehta hai, dil mein dard rehta hai’ s stood 24 th in the annual Binaca Geetmala ratings of 1976.

Dus Numbri was Manoj Kumar’s last major hit before ‘Kranti’ came in 1981. (in 1977 there were two Manoj Kumar releases ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’ and ‘Amaanat’.)

Those who have watched ‘Pehchaan’ and ‘Be-imaan’ would find the picturisation of Part-II of this song similar to ‘sabse badaa naadaan wahi hai’ and ‘Ek ek ginwaata hoon’ (which is yet to be posted on our blog), which happens to be at party/function, where Manoj Kumar challenges and takes on the corrupt-big-wigs in the society, and the pseudo-seculars, pseudo-socialists, and the hypocrites of the society, and threatens to expose them.

Let us enjoy Marjrooh Saab’s words, Laxmikant Pyarelal’s composition and wonderful singing of Mukesh Saab. This is a title song that was meant to be a “timepass” song but the song has managed to remain dormant in the recesses of one’s memory. Listening to this song certainly brings back memories of 1970s for those who had lived through that era.

So here is this title song of “Dus Numberi” (1976)- A movie that was released exactly 38 years ago !

कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो
बात कहूँ मैं खरी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी
ये दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी

अरे कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो
बात कहूँ मैं खरी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी
ये दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी

एक नम्बर का हाथ दिखाया
जब कह के जय काली
अरे एक नम्बर का हाथ दिखाया
जब कह के जय काली
कितने ही सेठों कि भारी जेब हो गयी खाली
दो नम्बर हैं और निराला
देखूं और खुल जाए ताला
उड़ के पाकिट में आ जाए
हरे नोट कि परी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी
ये दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी

नम्बर तीन का चमत्कार
देखो जब फेंकूं पत्ता
अरे नम्बर तीन का चमत्कार
देखो जब फेंकूं पत्ता
सबकी तबियत करूँ साफ़ दिल्ली हो या कलकत्ता
चौथे मेरा गज़ब का झांसा
आप किया दूजे कों फांसा
कभी कभी तो पुलिस कों उलटे दिखलाऊं हथकड़ी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी
ये दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी

पाँचवां नम्बर ज़ुल्म का दुश्मन
मैं दुखियों का साथी ई ई
पाँचवां नम्बर ज़ुल्म का दुश्मन
मैं दुखियों का साथी
छठा देश के गद्दारों से
छीन लूं घर कि बाज़ी
नम्बर सात करे जो दंगा
एक हाथ मैं कर चंगा
लंगडी टंगड़ी छुरी कटारी
सब रह जाए धरी
के दुनिया
एक नम्बरी
तो मैं
दस नम्बरी
के दुनिया
एक नम्बरी
तो मैं
दस नम्बरी

कला आठवीं ये हैं कि
मैं प्यार से मिलता सब से
अरे कला आठवीं ये हैं कि
मैं प्यार से मिलता सब से
प्यार कि खातिर इंसान क्या है
लड़ जाऊं मैं रब से
नवां जो मुझसे मिले हसीना
नौ दिन तक न रुके पसीना
और नम्बर
दस

और नम्बर

लिखा है ये तो हर थाने में
सिफत है क्या क्या दीवाने में
जितनी उंगलियां इन हाथों में
उतनी जादूगरी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी
ये दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी

कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो
बात कहूँ मैं खरी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी

क्या हैं मेरा नाम न पूछो
गिर जायेंगे जाम न पूछो
कौन हूँ मैं ये जान के सब कों
लग जायेगी थर थरी

अरे कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो

ये दुनिया एक नम्बरी तो मैं दस नम्बरी
इस महफ़िल में किस पर क्या क्या
रंग चढ़ा सब जानू
इस महफ़िल में किस पर क्या क्या
रंग चढ़ा सब जानू
कौन छुपा किस भेस में प्यारे
मैं सब कों पहचानू
क्या हैं मेरा नाम न पूछो
गिर जायेंगे जाम न पूछो

लूट के जिसका घर बैठे हो
महल सजाये अपना
लूट के जिसका घर बैठे हो
महल सजाये अपना
उसका लहू पुकार रहा हैं…

उसका लहू पुकार रहा है
यार बचोगे कितना
ज़ुल्म हैं जितनी रात और दिन के
लूँगा बदले सब गिन गिन के
ज़ुल्म हैं जितनी रात और दिन के
लूँगा बदले सब गिन गिन के
तुम तो क्या
अरे बड़े बड़ों कि
कर दी तबियत हरी
के दुनिया एक नम्बरी

अरे कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो
बात कहूँ मैं खरी

As the name suggest it was with beimani they won the awards. They bought all the copies of Filmfare to fill up the nomination forms.
All the top films like Seeta Aur Geeta, Pakeezah, Apna Desh, Raja Jani, Victoria No 203 et al fell at the wayside. It was pure beimani perpetrated by Bharat Jai Jawan Jai Kisan!!!!

Interesting ! but, then there must have been ‘judges panel’ also or was it only on the basis of the nomination forms?
and this must also be the starting point then at filmfare, because the next year was more of surprise when Rishi Kapoor got the award for Bobby, and mark begining of the controversies which since then have a long list so far ! 🙂

It started with Rajesh Khanna buying the award for Sacha Jhutha in 1970 beating out Sanjeev Kumar in Khilona.

@ Atul ji – many thanks for posting this one !!
