Train travellers in India are quite used to crowding, not just in the lower classes, but even in upper classes. Getting privacy is the last thing they expect in a public transport system like Indian railways.

The highest form of privacy that one could get in Indian Railways in the past was in the first class coaches, which had separate cabins of four berths each , with a couple of two berths only cabins as well. Those first class (non AC) coaches have become extinct with time. Now the AC first class have similar compartments.

It is a dream fantasy of young males oozing adrenaline through every pore that they get to share one such train coupe with a stranger lady who is unaccompanied of course and that she should be game for what he intends to do under such circumstances. 🙂

Hindi movies have had several such rail song situations in the past, though the final outcome in these songs were not always as intended. In “Jab pyaar kisi se hota hai”(1961), Dev Anand finds himself in the same first class coupe with Asha Parekh. But instead of uttering sweet nothings and romancing her, he is forced to make threats of jumping out of the train, and Asha Parekh calls his bluff. Please go ahead and jump, she challenges him. Left with no option, Dev Saab jumps out, much to the shock of Asha Parekh, but the jump is timed so perfectly that he lands on the roof of a passing bus which was moving under the rail underbridge at that very moment ! Quite a Manmohan Desai like timimg and coincidence indeed. More than two decades later, a mother, standing in the first floor of her house would be standing there holding her baby, watching a dancing party on the road. The kid would slip out of her hand and fall on the lap of Amitabh Bachchan who would be passing under in his tonga at that very instant !

In “Kaala Baazaar” (1960), Dev saab once again gets into a first class compartment, where Waheeda Rehman in already there. And much to the disappointment of all young men, who find themselves in such situations, the parents of the girl also happen to be there. Why a girl need to travel with her parents even when she has grown up ! Dev Saab has no option but to sing a song full of double entendre, where he is singing about “ooper waala jaankar bhi anjaan hai”. The parents think that he is singing about the Almighty, while Waheeda Rehman, after some time begins to have doubts.

The next decade, viz 1970s saw the fantasy of young men being addressed rather more satisfactorily. We had song situations where grownup girls would actually be travelling alone and find themselves in the same coupe with the young male. By this time, the earlier non AC first class coach had given way to AC first class coaches in Hindi movies.

Thus we find Randhir Kapoor and Tanuja sharing the same AC compartment with each other in “Hamraahi” (1973). If Randhir Kapoor is expecting a walkover, he finds that the lady can wields a mean knife if required.

But the fantasy of the young movie going males have been addressed in the most satisfying manner in the movie “Ek Haseena Do Deewaane” (1972). In this song, we find Jeetendra and Babita finding themselves in the same AC coupe. The song situation finds Babita participating with equal gusto, with the song proceeding along the traditional Hindi movie ways where the boy keeps making advances and the girl keeps rejecting his advances. But as can be guessed by veteran Hindi movie songs watchers, her resistance becomes feebler and feebler as the song progresses.

Those who had had opportunities of watching the telecast of cricket matches by Doordarshan in the past, they will recall that the sole DD cameraman often missed the action. Instead of showing the ball going to the fence like a trace of bullet, the camera often ended up showing us a portion of the fence on the other side of the field.

As the song reaches its end, the camera behaves erratically like a DD camera telecasting a cricket match. Instead of showing us what happens next, we are shown the train entering a tunnel and next we are shown the working of a steam locomotive, viz its piston moving to and fro in the cylinder, letting off steam in the process.

Well, it must be said that this is the only such rail song that I have come across. Seeing the rail songs that came before, this must be the holy grail of all rail songs as far as an average adrenaline full Hindi moviegoer is concerned whose wildest fantasy gets played out in this song.

On the occassion of Kishore Kumar’s 85th birth anniversary today (4 august 2014), here is this song from “Ek haseena Do Deewaane”(1972). The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Jeetendra and Babita. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Caution-Do not try it in a train. 🙂

Another guy shown in the song with turban is YUNUS PARWEZ and whether the lady with ghoonghat on her head is character artiste (young)LALITA KUMARI ?

She is not Lalita Kumari. She looks more like one dancer gone plump. BTW all locomotion are stationary only the scenes are moving(back projection)

May be a Young SAROJ KHAN(then a Dance assistant->just guess work) 🙂

how did i miss this post in 2014, as Rajaji has said- full of Atulisms.
am still grinning after reading it.
going by what i read about the movie on WIKI there is every possibility that this song is post the marriage of Jeetu and Babs (in the movie)
