#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 38 # Composer – R.D.Burman #
—————————————————-

While compiling the list of mp3s of songs composed by R.D.Burman, I came across this song from ‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’. This song reminded me that I had watched this film at a ‘touring talkies’ years back (may be in 1974-75).

Watching films in the ‘touring talkies’ was an altogether different experience for us those who grew up in the seventies. In one of my posts earlier I had mentioned about watching the film ‘Bandhe -Haath – 1971’ in a ‘touring talkies’. The ‘touring talkies’ would visit to village near our Colony (where we were staying then (1968-1984)). They would camp there mostly during the ‘summer vacations’ or during any village festivals or fairs and they would then leave.

Coming back to today’s post, I was aware of two songs from this movie ‘Shareef Badmaash’- ‘tere sau deewaane’ and ‘neend churaake raaton mein’-these were the most popular and frequently heard songs from the movie. They would feature in many song compilations on cassettes and/or CDs.

I had completely forgotten today’s song. Moreover I do not remember to have heard it anywhere all these years.

‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’ was directed by Raj Khosla for Navketan International Films Pvt. Ltd. It was produced by Dev Anand.
The film has Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Ajit, Jeevan, Bhagwan, Helen, Man Mohan (in guest appearance), Trilok Kapoor, Sudhir, Shyam Kumar, Captain, Mrudula, Birbal, Nawab, Minal Hercules, Ved Puri, Mac Mohan, Shah Agha, Jankidas, Uma Dutt, Sudarshan Sethi, Dhanna, Bihari, B.Soni, M.A.Latif, Mamaji, Habib, Gulab Singh, Gurbachan Singh, Aditya Sharma, Rashid Khan, Viju Khote, Sapru, Prem Kumar, and Shatrughan Sinha and others.

The film had five songs in it which were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by R.D.Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs.

The film was passed by Censor Board on 31.03.1973.

I had also forgotten about the story of this film. So I bought a VCD . Details of the movie that are mentioned in the blurb on the jacket of the VCD/DVD is given below;

The Government of India has devised plans for a new kind of super aircraft. A gangster, Diwan, manages to get this plan which is in a micro-film through a driver who kills the Scientists.

However Diwan gets rid-of this driver and throw him in a river after getting hold of the film. Diwan hides the plan in his safe along with other valuable materials.

The police find out that the plans have been stolen by a ‘Diwan’, and start a manhunt for all Diwans in Bombay. When they come across the Diwan, they ask him to show them his valuable, which he agrees to do so. To his shock, he finds that he has been betrayed and burgled.

The police and the Diwan – with inputs from Diwan- conclude that the thief is none other than Diwan’s trusted man, Ajit. The Police have Ajit arrested, but he refuses to divulge any information.

Diwan recruits a man called Rocky who is entrusted with the task of arranging for Ajit’s escape from the prison, as well as to find out the whereabouts of the valuables from Ajit. Rocky, who keeps on denying that he is Rocky, agrees to do so for a large sum of money as his fee, to which Diwan agrees.

Rocky’s plan is to seduce cabaret dancer, Seema, who is the lover of the Jailer, and hence gain entry to the jail. When this fails, Rocky gets himself arrested and jailed in the same prison as Ajit.

After his entry into the prison, it gets revealed that the man they call Rocky is not Rocky at all but an imposter, who had agreed to pose as Rocky just to get the large fee.

The real Rocky, who calls himself Kanhaiyalal, agrees to help the imposter Rocky to escape from prison along with Ajit, so that they can find the plans and hand them in to Diwan, and collect their fee.

But fate has other plans for the imposter Rocky, as he is caught by another master criminal and gangster, Ranjeet, and is held captive until he tells him about the whereabouts of the plans as well as the valuables.

The song is composed by R.D.Burman and listening to it after many years gives me the heady feeling of ‘pure nostalgia’.

The tune by Pancham Da is very catchy and the song grows up on the listener as one listen to it a few times.

The two movies that were discussed back to back in this series were pure ‘masala’ films. And in the ‘Seventies’ Manmohan Desai ruled as the ‘master of the masala films’.

So, for the ‘movie-buffs’ of the ‘films of the seventies’ and those who enjoy Manmohan Desai’s ‘masala’ films and like the many ‘coincidences’ in his films, or the ‘connecting links’ and ‘happenings as ordained by the ‘Director’ here are some interesting coincidences which happened in my last three posts (including this one);

– The two songs that I selected for this ‘summer nostalgia posts’ are compositions of R.D.Burman and that was the first reason for the posts too,
– The post that I share as a background post also had a song that is sung by Asha Bhonsle (Sitamgar – 1959),
– The second and third post had a song from a film which was produced by an actor for his own banner – 1) Sunil Dutt -‘Ajanta Arts’, ‘Nehle Pe Dehla-1976’ and (2) Dev Anand -‘Navketan International’ – ‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’ and both these films were directed by Raj Khosla (I realized this fact only while finalizing this song-post) 🙂
– The lyrics of the songs for the two posts are by the same lyricist – Anand Bakshi.

If you want more, here it is!!

– All the three posts have songs starting with alphabet ‘M’, ‘main bhi teri dil bhi tera jhoomnewaale’, ‘main choron ki raani hoon’, and ‘mohabbat baazi jeetegi’…

– Both the movies – ‘Nehle Pe Dehla-1976’ and ‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’ had their last appearance in the blog in ‘2009’. 🙂
– None of the songs from both the above films made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ during their respective years.
– While the song ‘main choron ki raani hoon’ from ‘Nehle Pe Dehla -1976’ is the first song of the movie, the song ‘mohabbat baazi jeetegi’ is the last song in the movie ‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’:)
– Trilok Kapoor acts as the Head of the Police in both the above films, which ‘post-wise is ok, but chronologically it is not so because he is a Police Commissioner in ‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’ while only SP in ‘Nehle Pe Dehla -1976’ 🙂

– (that is how formula of ‘success’ gets worked out)

And believe me nothing was planned except ‘compiling of mp3s of R.D.Burman songs’ and a ‘nostalgia’ post (which will be a separate post and delayed now) but in the process we got to enjoy three Asha Bhonsle songs

… And wait wait….

Wait for the next post … Oh my God!!

The song in the next post too has the voice of Asha Bhonsle in it. 🙂

Let us now enjoy this song where Hema Malini is lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. The songs happens in the ‘villain’s den’ where Ajit has captured both Dev Anand and Jeevan alongwith Dev’s mother.
