#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

My memories of ‘Summer vacations’ in my younger days mainly revolve around playing cricket, reading story books, and watching movies.

We eagerly waited for the vacations so that we could visit our grandfather’s place (which was at Akola -30 kms from Vidyut Nagar Paras where we were staying then from 1968-1984) and watch newly released movies there. I think that I can still recall (with full accuracy) names of movies that we watched and the names of the theatres that screened them.

So, when I was just thinking of my list of songs that evokes ‘nostalgia’ in me and /or others that were in my ‘list of favorite songs of the seventies’, I also thought of having a look at the dates of release of some of the movies and to see if I had watched them during my ‘summer vacations’ then.

And as I get drowned into the ‘RDB tunes’ (as discussed in my earlier post), I came across this song ‘main choron ki raani hoon’ which I heard again after 30-35 years.

Considering the date of certification of this movie, it is quite possible that it was released during the summer of 1976 and we must have watched it during the ‘summer vacations’ then.

I think that only two songs from this movie became popular namely the song ‘saawan ka mahina aa gaya’ (which is there in my list of ‘favorite songs of the seventies’) and the other being the title song viz. ‘logon ki zubaan pe apna naam hai pehla’. The other songs seem to have failed to appeal to music lovers and hence they were forgotten. The song under discussion is one of the forgotten songs from the movie.

None of the songs from this film made it to the ‘annual list’ of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year. I do not know how the film itself fared at the ‘box-office’. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this matter.

This song is ‘main choron ki raani hoon’ sung by Asha Bhonsle and composed by R.D.Burman. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.

Here is a brief about this movie;

Harish (Bharat Bhushan (spelled as ‘Bharat Booshan’ in the titles of the movie) and Khan Sahab (Trilok Kapoor) are good friends and both work in Police.

Khan Sahab is SP and senior to Harish.

Bharat Bhushan has two sons.

Mangal (Om Prakash) is Bharat Bhushan’s driver. He has a daughter Bhindi (bin Maa ki bachchi).
His daughter and the elder son of the Inspector are ‘natural’ 🙂 friends.

On an Eid day Bharat Bhushan and his family, his wife Kamla (Kamini Kaushal) and two sons along with Om Prakash and his daughter, arrive at Trilok Kapoor’s house to greet him on the Eid day. Trilok Kapoor has an urgent call and a tip-off about the ‘General’ the king-pin of the smugglers(jiske peecchhe Police barson se lagi huyi hai ) , and so he is just stepping out when Bharat Bhushan intervenes and offers him to enjoy the festival and taking the responsibility to nab the smugglers on his own.

Kopa Ka Baana (Copa ca bana 🙂 !!!)

Premnath in his typical villain avatar uttering, screaming, shouting ‘Kopaa Ka Baana’ (or ‘Copacabana’) all the film, manages to escape from the spot, but his ‘red diary’ falls there at the Beach (I wonder if this is the same diary:) that was later used in the film ‘Don’ of Amitabh) which has the contact numbers and names of all the ‘whose who’ of the ‘under-world’.

So this ‘crucial laal diary’ is collected by Bharat Bhushan, who carries it to home (and not directly to Police Station 🙂 )

To get hold of this diary Premnath plans to kidnap Bharat Bhushan’s children while Om Prakash is driving them to school.

Kopa Kaa Baana aa

‘Diary tumhaare paas aur bachche hamaare paas, ab farmaaiye aapka kya prrograamme ( 🙂 ) hai

Premnath with his aide Anwar Hussain makes a ‘smart’ move and reach Bharat Bhushan’s place to get hold of the ‘red diary’ and later shots Bharat Bhushan, so that he does not disclose the names and other details that he must have memorized from the ‘diary’.

He also injures Kamini Kaushal who loses her sight and before leaving they set the house on fire.

At the ‘villain’s den’ Elder of the two children succeeds in running away from the ‘gang members’ injuring –Dev Kumar (one of them).

He grows into Sunil (Sunil Dutt) and becomes a CID Officer under SP-Khan Sahab (Trilok Kapoor).

Meanwhile, Premnath instructs his accomplices to shoot both children. Karim (Tiwari) who receives the order on the phone has a change of heart and also this child (our dear baby) starts crying while the soft-hearted Tiwari (Karim) assures him ‘haan bete tujhe Daddy milega, zaroor milega, zaroor milega, Aaj se main tera Daddy !

This boy is our Master Bitttoo who grows up into Vinod Khanna and becomes a ‘chor.’

On the other side Police arrests Om Prakash in doubt of helping the ‘smugglers’ in kidnapping of the Inspector’s children.
Nobody heeds to his requests as some money is also recovered from his home.

Insaan paise ke liye kitna gir sakta hai

And finally this poor guy can not prove his innocence and is sent to jail – ‘das saal qaid-e-ba-mashakkat’…

So, from here the film takes-off …

‘Two brothers getting separated, a father and a daughter getting separated, a mother loses her sight’ – all lost here – How they find each other is the story!!

With some twists and turns (inspired from ‘Johny Mera Naam’, but not that much effective and thrilling, and for the comic relief here we do not have Pehla Ram, Duja Ram and Teeja Ram! ) , RDB’s entertaining music, a qawwali by Aziz Nazaan, Hindu-Muslim brotherhood, and typical ‘masaala’ film dialogues like ‘kaanoon ke haath bade lambe hote hain’ (magar … kaanoon ke haath pahunchne tak kayi maasoom insaanon ka khoon beh jaayega ..)

Overall it seems to be a good interesting movie that keeps you engaged till the end and the ‘fans of seventies’ will definitely like it and those who have forgotten it would love to watch it again!!

‘Nehale Pe Dehlaa-1976’ was produced by Sunil Dutt for his own banner ‘Ajanta Arts, Bombay’.
It was directed by Raj Khosla.
The cast of this film had Sunil Dutt, Saira Banu, Vinod Khanna, Bindu, Ranjeet, Premnath, Om Prakash (Special Appearance), Kamini Kaushal, Anwar Hussain, Trilok Kapoor, Tiwari, Dev Kumar (Guest appearance), Bharat Bhushan, Keshav Rana, Romeo, Shiv Kumar, Vikas Anand, Prem Kumar, Hercules, Daljit Rao, Pahalwan, Dhanraj, Vivek, Sonu, Bittu, Ejaz, Jilani, Ramesh and others.

Screenplay of this film was written by K.K.Shukla and dialogues by Satish Bhatnagar

The film had total five songs.

Four songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and one by Farooq Qaisar (qawwali). Music was composed by R.D.Burman.
Qawwaali is sung by Aziz Nazaan who also composed it(as per HFGK).

Aziz Nazaan, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Manna Dey gave their voices to the songs.
Mukesh’s name is also there in the singers list of the films , however so far as I am aware there is no Mukesh song in this film and his voice is not there in any of the released songs of this film.

The Censor Board passed this film on 30.03.1976.

Earlier, only one song from this movie ‘saawan ka mahina aa gaya’ has been posted on the blog and that too far back in 2009. So, the today’s song is the second song from ‘Nehle Pe Dehla – 1976’ to appear on the blog.

@ Atul ji – many thanks for the post !!
However, one correction is needed in the line -‘ He also injures Kamini Kaushal who loses her sight (to regain it at the end of the film)…’
Kindly DELETE ‘to regain it at the end of the film’.

I sincerely regret the mistake at my end. Kindly correct please.
