Today’s song is a complete turn around from my style of writing on old films and music. Today’s song is from the film “Chameli ki shaadi”(1986). Usually I restrict my choice of songs to the period between 1930s to the 1960s films. But there are some films made after 1970 ( and some made even after the year 2000) which I liked very much. “Chameli ki shaadi”(1986) is one such film.

I saw my last Hindi film in a theatre somewhere in the year 1975-76. After that I have not visited any Theatre. I have not seen any Multiplex from inside anytime. It does not mean that I stopped seeing films. In the 1980s and 1990s I saw films on my VCR and later on, on Television. As my age advanced, my patience receded and it was impossible for me to sit before a TV set for 4 hours to watch a movie of 2 1/2 hours and advertisements of 1 1/2 hours. In any case after the year 2000 the kind of films made were certainly not to my taste and I stopped seeing films completely, except some exceptions.

I like and love films made before 1970, but as I always say, “Not all that is made after 1970 is bad , as much as, not all that is made before 1970 is good either ! “. There were few very good and entertaining movies in the last 46 years too. Films like Deewar, Sholey, Satte pe satta, Trishul, Baadbaan, Anand Khoobsurat, Chitchor, chupke chupke, Rajnigandha and many more ( surprisingly this list will be quite long ! ) were the films which I saw repeatedly and liked them immensely. Almost all films made by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee and Basu Bhattacharya were my first choices. The most “recent” films I enjoyed seeing repeatedly were Malamal weekly, Pasand apni apni, Hangama and Hera Pheri part 1 and 2 both.

Chameli ki shaadi was one such movie which I liked very much and I see it again and again whenever I come across it on TV. Anil Kapoor ( born 24-12-1956) is not one of my favourite actors, but I feel he is very good at light comedy at the hands of a good Director. Out of his 120 films till 2017 January, starting from his first film Hamare Tumhare-79, I must have seen hardly 5 or 6 of his films like Chameli ki Shaadi-86, Mr.India-87, Ram Lakhan-89, Ghar ho to aisa-90, Gharwali Baharwali-98 etc etc.

Chameli ki shaadi-86 was his 20th film, but he was not very famous or well known by that time. He came to the notice of the bigwigs of the industry from this film and he reached the top with his net film, which was Mr. India-87. Then there was no looking back. Till Chameli….he was paired with other actors, but it was in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”, a low budget film that he first tasted sucees as a solo hero.

This Prakash Mehra production film was produced by Ramesh Ningoo and Susheel Gaur and it was directed by Basu Chatterjee. Lyrics were by Prakash Mehra and Anjaan. Music Directors were Kalyanji- Anandji. The cast was Anil Kapoor, Amrita Singh, Om Prakash, Amjad Khan, Komal, Pankaj Kapoor, Bharti Achrekar, Anu Kapoor, Tabassum etc etc. The film was censored on 22-1-86 and was it was released on 21-2-86. Chameli ki shaadi aka Chameli’s marriage was an out and out comedy film. Handled skillfully by a Master craftsman like Basu Chatterjee, no wonder it became a Hit and became a commercially successful film.

Basu Chatterjee (Bengali: বাসু চ্যাটার্জ্জী; born 10 January 1930 at Ajmer) is an Indian film director and screenwriter. Through the 1970s and 1980s, he became associated with what came to be known as middle cinema or middle-of-the road cinema, with film makers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Bhattacharya, whom he assisted in Teesri Kasam (1966). Like them, his films also dealt with light-hearted stories of middle-class families often in urban settings, focussing on marital and love relationships, with exceptions like Ek Ruka Hua Faisla (1986) and Kamla Ki Maut (1989), which delved into social and moral issues. He is best known for his films Chhoti Si Baat (1975), Chitchor (1976), Rajnigandha (1974), Piya Ka Ghar (1972), Baton Baton Mein (1979) and Shaukeen (1982).

Chatterjee started his career as an illustrator and cartoonist with weekly tabloid, Blitz published in Bombay (now Mumbai) by Russi Karanjia. Here he worked for 18 years, before he changed career paths to filmmaking when he assisted Basu Bhattacharya in Raj Kapoor and Waheeda Rehman starrer, Teesri Kasam (1966), which later won National Film Award for Best Feature Film. Eventually he made his directorial debut with Sara Akash in 1969, which won him Filmfare Best Screenplay Award.

When Basu Chatterji debuted with the much acclaimed Sara Akash, he not only announced the arrival of a new kind of cinema, rooted in the regular lives of ordinary people, he also etched 1969 as the year that marked the beginning of the Indian New Wave cinema. Together with Mani Kaul’s Uski Roti and Mrinal Sen’s Bhuvan Shome, Sara Akash took Indian films to the next level, taking a close look at the conflicts, aspirations, emotions and relationships of people who were next door, not larger than life.

Sara Akash based on first part of Rajendra Yadav’s debut novel Sara Akash (The Infinite Cosmos, 1951), explored the internal conflicts of a newly-wed couple in a traditional middle class joint family in Uttar Pradesh and how they grapple with the new challenges of domestic life they were not prepared for. The film was entirely shot on location giving it a greater feel of actual reality. Chatterji himself identified with the milieu as he had been brought up in Mathura. His own inspirations, especially Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves and the films of France and Sweden were reflected in his style of story-telling – to narrate as it happened, with no frills attached.

Some of his best films are Rajnigandha (1974), Baaton Baaton Mein, Chhoti si Baat, Shaukeen, Swami, Apne Paraaye, Dillagi, Chitchor, Khatta Meetha and Ek Ruka Hua Faisla. He also directed Dev Anand in Man Pasand, Rajesh Khanna in Chakravyuh and Amitabh Bachchan in Manzil but these films did not do well. He has also directed many Bengali films like Hothat Brishti, Hochcheta Ki & Hothat Shei Din. He has directed 37 films in Hindi. He has even acted in one film Jalwa-1986. ( credited also).

He directed the TV Series Byomkesh Bakshi and the popular Rajani (TV series) for Doordarshan.

He was a member of the jury at the 10th Moscow International Film Festival in 1977. Chatterjee is a member of International Film And Television Club of Asian Academy of Film & Television. He had his retrospective as part of Kala Ghoda Art Festival Mumbai in February 2011.
His daughter Rupali Guha is also a film director. Her first Hindi film “Aamras”, released in September 2009, is a coming of age film involving four schoolgirls. Rupali’s next, a Bengali film “Porichoi” with Prosenjit Chatterji, deals with estranged father-daughter relationship. She also produces TV serials under the Filmfarm banner. Her serials include Tumhari Disha, Rakhi Bhai Behen ka hai Pyaar, Dil se diya Vachan & Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se for ZEE TV, Kashi for NDTV Imagine & Uttaran for COLORS. (adapted from Wiki).

I liked this film, with a simple uncomplicated story without any subplots and total entertainment.The expert director had ensured that the film kept moving on and the audience enjoyed it very much. The story of Chameli ki Shaadi was….

Charandas (Anil Kapoor) is a small town young man living with his brother Bhajandas (Satyen Kappu) and Bhabhi (Tabassum). He is unemployed and wants to be a wrestler with Ustad Mastram(Omprakash)- who has warned him to keep off from girls and not to marry till he is 40 years old.
When Charandas meets Chameli (Amrita Singh), the daughter of a coal merchant, they fall in love neck deep and want to marry. They are from different castes and as he is jobless, there is opposition from both sides. Both are, however firm. Chameli is kept prisoner under lock and key by her parents in her house.

Advocate Harish (Amjad Khan) comes to the help of Charandas. He suggests Charandas to elope with Chameli and that he will get them married under his legal protection as both are adults. Chameli’s parents Kallumal( Pankaj Kapoor) and Champa (Bharti Achrekar) call Chameli’s crook Mama Chhaganlal (Annu Kapoor) as a help to solve this problem.

Charandas and his friends fool Chameli’s parents and mama and the pair runs away. They get married in the house of Harish under the protection of Ustad Mastaram and his boys of the Akhaada. Both side parents come with their caste supporters to stop the marriage, but advocate Harish skillfully convinces both parties and the film ends with Chameli ki shaadi successfully performed with Charandas.

The best scene of this film which I liked is the first meeting of Charandas and Chameli in a posh restaurant of the town. Chameli’s friend Anita (Komal) is also present. This is one of the most hilarious scenes from a Hindi film after a long time. I must have seen this scene a hundred times till today. While writing this article also I saw it again on YT.

The situation of today’s song is that Mama Chhaganlal (Annu Kapoor) is looking for Charandas to teach him a lesson. Friends of Charandas lure him to a Restaurant to catch Charandas, whom he has never seen. When mama has a few drinks Charandas and his friends make fun of him and do his ” Dhulaai.”

I am sure you will enjoy the Cabaret dance and the video of the action in the Club.



Song-Peena haraam hai na pilaana haraam hai (Chameli Ki Shaadi)(1986) Singers-Alka Yagnik, Kishore Kumar, Lyricist- Prakash Mehra, MD- Kalyanji-Anand ji
Anil Kapoor
Annu Kapoor


peene ki talab hai to piyo
shauk se piyo
par shart ye hai
pee ke yahaan
hosh mein raho

peena haraam hai
na pilaana haraam hai
peena haraam na pilaana haraam hai
peene ke baad pyaare
haan ladkhadaana haraam hai

peena haraam hai
na pilaana haraam hai
peena haraam na pilaana haraam hai
peene ke baad pyaare
bahak jaana
dagmagaana haraam hai

uthho natwarlaal
pehchaana ke nahin
itne dinon baad mile hain

bhootni ke
bhool gaya kya
bhool gaya
bhool gaya mujhe
hoor kyon raha hai mujhe
are sambhaal apne aap ko
zyaada pee li hai kya
uthh nattu uthh

sorry sorry
arre dedh pasli ka thha
aur abhi bhi dedh pasli ka hi rah gaya

arre bhai jaan
aap ko galat fahmi huyi hai
mera naam natwarlal nahin hai
mera naam

tere puraane latke nahin gaye ab tak
puraane latke
natkhat bade
achcha meri taraf se ek le ke aana
inke liye
ye haan
o bhool gaya mujhe
he he

ye kya badtameezi hai be
bad tameezi hai
bhootni ke
keh diya na ek baar
mera naam natwarlal nahin hai
meri naam chhadammmilal hai

magar shakal soorat se tum bilkul natwarlal lagte ho
tum uske judwe bhai to nahin ho


mujhe maaf
agr tum natwarlal nahin to phir ye kyon
baithho yahaan

laao ji laao

nasha laal paani mein dekha anokha
peeke do ghoont
gala ghont do ghamon ka
ghont do gala
peene ke baad nazar khaaye na dhokha
khul jaaye bhed doston dushmanon ka
tu hi mera jigri yaar hai
mujhko tujhse kitna pyaar hai
pyaar ye dil ke aar paar hai
dil tujhpe lattu
aankh wahi hai naak wahi hai
baal vahi hai
chaal vahi hai
haan tu natwar laal wahi hai
mere yaar nattu

masti hai jaam hai
haan masti hai jaam hai
kitna aaraam hai
masti hai jaam hai
kitna aaraam hai
peene ke baad pyaare
chhatpataana haraam hai

peena haraam na pilaana haraam hai
peene ke baad pyaare
haan tadfadaana haraam hai

dekh natwar
ab bhi maan jaa
toone zyaada pee li hai

abe o bhootni ke
keh diya na ek baar
ki main chhadammilaal hoon
maanta hi nahin

mujhse udhaar le kar mujhi se katra raha hai
aur yahaan luta raha hai
chhod diya tujhe

abe bhootni ke
chhod to sahi

arre tu bhi kya yaad karega
mera bhi bada dil hai
chhod diya tujhe


ho o
jo peena hai to pyaar ke jaam peena
jo peena hai to pyaar ke jaam peena
nasha jis ka mar ke bhi utre kabhi na
kya baat kahi
jo le doobe tujhko
wo peena kya peena
behosh hoke bhi jeena kya jeena
subah bhula de
shaam bhula de
duniya ka har kaam bhula de
kya hoga anjaam bhula de
jaam ka ye jaadoo
naam badal ke
dekho jhaansa
jhaanson se kitnon ko phaansa
aakhir ulta pad gayaa paasa
bana tamaasha tu

mai kyun badnaam hai
kyon kyon
mai kyun badnaam hai
kyun peena ilzaam hai
arre mai kyun badnaam hai
kyon peena ilzaam hai
peene ke baad pyaare
haraam hai

peena haraam na pilaana haraam hai
peene ke baad pyaare
ye thharthharaana
o badbadaana
haraam hai
