“Majhli Didi” (1967) was produced by Kochi Sarkaar and Gopal Mukherjee and produced by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for K G Pictures. The movie was based on Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay’s Bangla novel “Mejhdidi”. The movie had Meena kumari, Dharmendra, Bipin gupta, Lalita pawaar, Master Sachin, eela Chitnis, Leela Mishra, Amal Sen, Abubakar, Parashuram, Ajit Chatterjee, Keshto Mukherjee, Samar Roy, Nimbalkar, Baby Saarika, Jalal Agha, Asit Sen, Shah, Satya Bannerjee, Aaythodha, Master Maruti, Master Khalid, Daya Bai, Niranjan Roy, Muniraaj, Baby Razia, Jalal Agha, Asit Sen etc in it.

Today (26 september 2014) is the 25th death anniversary of Hemant Kumar (16 june 1920-26 september 1989). On this occasion, here is a song from “Majhli Didi” (1967). Though HFGK described this song as one song, this song has as many as three versions. The first version of the song is sung by Lata, Kamal Barot, Neelima Chatterji and chorus. This is the version of the song that is mentioned in HFGK. This version is picturised as a Ramleela /Jaatra song picturised on Master Sachin, Parshuram etc. There is also the second and third version of the song which have identical lyrics and which are sung by Lata. The second version of the song is lip synced by Sachin with his mater (Leela Chitnis) on death bed. The third version is picturised on Master Sachin who lip syncs this song (in a happier frame of mind) in the presence of Meena Kumari.

Thus we see that the song has three versions, even though HFGK described this as just one song. This could perhaps mean that the records of the second and third version of the song were not recorded. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.
