Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1983.

A young boy of fifteen, who has just successfully passed out his SSC-Board exams, is keen on taking up higher studies further. He is uncertain of the future, as the subjects he like and the subjects his family & friend circle want him to study are extremely opposite. Finally he lands with an admission in 11th with PMC stream and additional vocational subjects.

Now, as usual in our middle class society, and given the age this boy is also in love with Hindi films and dreaming about the future.

But slowly there was some passion, some madness growing in his watching of the Hindi films and falling in love with HFM. This boy was getting inclined to the movies of an actor who was not of his time, but an actor, who by that time was taken over by an ‘angry young man’ in the industry.  However, few of his films appeared in quick succession at the same time i.e. in 1983 and this actor was in news again.

This boy was now getting more and more involved with his favorite actor’s mannerisms, style, his acting, his sensible matured performances, his romance and his song sequences. He liked the various characters this actor played in the movies and particularly the ‘death scenes’ in his films where the actor dies in his own ‘inimitable style’.

With every new film he watches of this actor the ‘hysteria’ continued to grow on and on …

*****
The actor mentioned in above story is none other than the Indian Cinema’s first Superstar – Rajesh Khanna.

And the boy?

*****
Fast forward to 2015. The boy is now a 47 years old person and yours very sincerely. As he writes this post, he is looking back over those years, discovering how and where it actually started – the ‘magic’ of Rajesh Khanna and his films. Recollecting all that I had gone through in those years, I wish to analyze it all now. How it happened? What thinking process I was going over then? etc.

As I try to get to the point in time when exactly it must have started, I can surely say that ‘Mehbooba’ (1976) and ‘Mere Jeewan Saathi’ (1972) are the two prominent films that touched me the most and molded the mind of a young boy in his early teens. I got to watch these films in our colony during the weekly screening of films in the ‘Recreation Club’ for the employees. Given the stage of adolescence, one tends to be attracted to the world outside and the friends in society. And,very importantly, one is eager to fall in love with someone – someone special. A time where the gap between a world of ‘dreams’ and the world of ‘reality’ is only a few years apart. But when one is in love, nothing seems to be impossible. And the mind is always looking for an altogether different ‘world’.

The other few movies, starring Rajesh Khanna that I remember to have watched before 1983 were ‘Bandish'(1969), ‘The Train’ (1970), ‘Tyaag’ (1976), ‘Chakravyuha'(1978),  ‘Thodi Si Bewafai’ (1980), and ‘Dhanwan’ (1981). Besides, there are few more movies which remain in my memory. These I must have watched  with some family members. The films are ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ (1971), ‘Anuraag’ (1972), ‘Roti’ (1974) and ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974). These are nostalgic films for me and their song brings back sweet memories.

I divide my watching of Rajesh Khanna films into three phases – as ‘as a child’, ‘in early teens’ and the others ‘in late teens and further’. In this series which takes off today I will be sharing ‘my times with Rajesh Khanna films’ and some songs from his films, remembering the late Superstar on his 74th birth anniversary (29th December).

For this occasion I have selected this song from the 1976 film ‘Mehbooba’ where Rajesh Khanna is seen doing a stage performance and the films’ titles also rolling …

The lyrics for this song are by Anand Bakshi. Music is composed by RD Burman. Perfectly matching the combination, it is sung by Kishore Kumar for the film ‘Mehbooba’ directed by Shakti Samanta.

A special song for this special occasion…

Enjoy the ‘style and substance of – the phenomenon- Rajesh Khanna’!!

Lyrics

haseenon
mere paas aao
main gaata hoon
tum muskuraao
meri raahon mein
aankhen bichhaao
arey tum mein se hi banegi koi meri
mehbooba
mehbooba
mehbooba
mehbooba

jiski jheel si gehri aankhon mein
mera dil dooba
jiski jheel si gehri aankhon mein
mera dil dooba
main uska mehboob banoonga
wo meri mehbooba
mehbooba aa
mehbooba

arey jiski jheel si gehri aankhon mein
mera dil dooba
main uska mehboob banoonga
wo meri mehbooba
mehbooba
mehbooba
mehbooba
ae mehbooba

jahaan dekhi maine
koi haseen
nazneen
mehzabeen
mere dil mein aayee wahi kahin
ye meri mehbooba to nahin
ae hi hi hi
hi hi hi hi
jahaan dekhi maine
koi haseen
nazneen
mehzabeen
mere dil mein aayee wahi kahin
ye meri mehbooba to nahin
ye meri mehbooba to nahin

हसीनों
मेरे पास आओ
मैं गाता हूँ
तुम मुस्कुराओ
मेरी राहों में
आँखें बिछाओ
अरे तुम में से ही बनेगी कोई मेरी
महबूबा
महबूबा
महबूबा
महबूबा
जिसकी झील सी गहरी आँखों में
मेरा दिल डूबा
जिसकी झील सी गहरी आँखों में
मेरा दिल डूबा
मैं उसका महबूब बनूँगा
वो मेरी महबूबा
महबूबा आ
महबूबा
अरे जिसकी झील सी गहरी आँखों में
मेरा दिल डूबा
मैं उसका महबूब बनूँगा
वो मेरी महबूबा
महबूबा
महबूबा
महबूबा
महबूबा
महबूबा
ए महबूबा

जहान देखी मैंने
कोई हसीं
नाजनीन
महज़बीन
मेरे दिल में आयी वही कहीं
ये मेरी महबूबा तो नहीं
ए ही ही ही
ही ही ही ही
जहान देखी मैंने
कोई हसीं
नाजनीन
महज़बीन
मेरे दिल में आयी वही कहीं
ये मेरी महबूबा तो नहीं
ये मेरी महबूबा तो नहीं
