In my previous posts I have mentioned about the summer vacatons during my childhood days when I would be watching movies in the company of my Uncles, brothers and cousins. We used to visit the Akola, the nearest city for many reasons (viz buying provisions etc), but watching movies was the main attraction for us – children- to go to Akola.

Watching movies in the company of my uncles (and later on in the company of my brothers) used to be enjoyable and memorable experiences to savour. I still remember standing in queue for getting the tickets of the movie and recalling how cheap the ‘tickets’ used to cost those days. One could watch these for as low as 50 paise(cost of front row-third class ticket) while the most expensive tickets for balcony used to be priced at around Rs.4-5.

On our way backback home we used to drink ‘special sharbat’ en route at the ‘lokhandi pul’ (Iron Bridge) near the municipality garden.

When I thought about sharing a few songs from the films that I had watched during the ‘summer vacations’, I was reminded of the song under discussion. I actually checked my annual exam mark-sheet(it used by called ‘Progress Card’those days ) to confirm the date on which I had watched the movie containing this song. :). I had passed the standard IVth and the results were declared on 30.04.1977. ‘Summer vacations’ may have started thereafter, from May-1st onwards. So I am pretty certain that I had watched this movie in may 1977.

This movie under discussion is ‘Dildaar-1977’. Songs of this movie may not be great songs but, so far as I can remember, a few songs from this movie were very popular those days and were heard on radio and loud speakers quite frequently.

Two songs from this movie ‘school (or sakool 🙂 ) mein kya padhoge’ and ‘teri meri shaadi seedhi saadi’ are there in my list of ‘my favorite songs of 1970’s’.

I was considering sharing one of these songs but I have decided to share another song from this film which is a duet. This duet song is picturised on Jeetendra and Nazneen, the lead pair of this movie.

All songs of this movie are ‘pure nostalgia’ for me. I like all of them. So, while I am happy to introduce this movie on the blog, I am also surprised that till date none of its songs were posted on the blog. And thanks to Atul ji that I can share and discuss this film on the blog after over thirty-nine years of its release which was in 1977. It was passed by the Censor board on 23.04.1977.

‘Dildaar-1977’ was a ‘Suresh Productions, Madras’ presentation and directed by none other than the famous director K.Bappaiah. It was produced by D.Rama Naidu.

It had Jeetendra, Rekha, Nazneen, Shashikala, Prem Chopra, Jeevan, Jagdeep, Keshto Mukherjee, Urmila Bhatt, Roopesh Kumar, Meena T, Sheetal and others. Deven Verma, Sujit Kumar and Raza Murad made guest appearance in the movie.

The story of the movie was by Bala Murugan and Inder Raj Anand wrote the dialogues for this movie.
The film’s title mentioned Umakant Sharma as the Dialogue Director of the movie. (something special ?)

The film had five songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar gave their voices to the songs of this film, where there was one solo by Kishore Kumar and other four songs were all duet songs sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar.
I do not remember much about the film’s story and other things and would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on it.

Here is the brief (plot) about this movie as given on wiki page;

Banke Lal lives a fairly wealthy lifestyle in a village along with his widowed mom, Laxmi. He has earned an award from the Government as well as had been interviewed on All India Radio as he had excelled in farming. He is in love with Parvati, the daughter of the village Sarpanch, Charandas. When Charandas refuses to permit him to wed Parvati as she is more educated, Banke vows to wed a city-bred woman who is, even more, qualified than Parvati. He re-locates to Bombay, and after a few weeks return home with his new bride, Lata. Shortly thereafter chaos reigns in his life when he finds out that Lata is a mentally unstable runaway bride, her to-be spouse is wealthy Advocate Shamsher Singh and the entry of Savitri – who claims that Banke married her and that she is pregnant with his child.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song which is a dream sequence song and it is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar.

(With this post I conclude this ‘mini-sub- series’ of songs which brings back the nostalgia of ‘summer vacation movie watching for me. This is all for now till some similar nostalgic feelings come to the fore prompting some more nostalgia based series in future.) 🙂

This is a song out of my memory book too. I had seen it back then with my dad (who else) at Navrang theatre in Andheri. Don’t know if it still exists!
I remember there was some song on a Bullock cart also. And that Rekha is mentally unstable in the movie. Shd see it again.

Want to see an adult movie Le Aib Dulhaniya Pakistan se(A) Bhojpuri Duration:01 hour 52 minutes.
Arunji must be passing by whenever he visits Andheri Station(W)

This song brings back memories. I had completely forgotten it but the moment I saw the title, it clicked in my head. 🙂 Thank you, Avinashji.

And to see that anybody other than me knows the song “sakool mein kya padhoge, ho Raam” feels so good! 🙂 I remember that song only too well. This was also the movie where Jagdeep had that funny style. 🙂
