In Hindi movies, people are shown falling in love even though they often cannot afford it. Just like one cannot sing bhajan on an empty stomach (one Hindi saying), one cannot afford to fall in love unless one is financially independent and secure (it is a Hindi saying of my creation 🙂 )

We often find people telling us that they remained uneducated because of poor financial conditions, but we will never find a drunkard who allows poor financial conditions to come in the way of him becoming a drunkard. Likewise, in Hindi movies we will never find a pair of lead actors telling us that they were not in a situation to lip sync a romantic duet because of lack of financial independence.

“Trishul”(1978) has as many as four duet songs and they are picturised on three pairs. Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman lip sync one duet while Shashi Kapoor and Hema Malini lip sync two duets. Going by the story, Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman were not in a position to lip sync a romantic duet but they did so even if they could not afford it.

Shashi Kapoor and Hema Malini are both shown as financially independent, so they can very well afford to fall in love and sing duets. They sing two duets and that is quite acceptable as far as I am concerned.

I quite like the fact that Amitabh Bachchan and Raakhi do not sing any duet in the movie because they actually cannot afford to.

The seventh and final song from the movie happens to be the fourth duet of the movie. It is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is lip synced by Sachin and Poonam Dhillon in a swimming pool. Now, here is a pair of actors who are college students and they are financially dependent on their parents. But like archtypical drunkards, they do not allow their lack of financial independence come in the way of singing a romantic duet.

With this song, “Trishul”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

During the last 5-6 years, I have studied in details Sahir Sahab’s filmy and literary poems. He had seldom used nonsensical words in his filmy songs, except in a couple of songs during his early filmy career. So I was surprised when the song under discussion started with nonsensical words ‘gaapoochi gaapoochi gam gam. I tried to find reason for using such words on the Internets and also after watching a number of TV interviews of Khayyam sahab. But I could not get any lead in the matter.

It was only when I was collecting materials for my article on Sahir Ludhianvi on the occasion of his 97th birth anniversary on March 8, 2018, I become aware of the fact the the nonsensical words (in fact, the first two lines of the song) were not written by Sahir Ludhianvi but were provided by Yash Chopra himself when he advised Khayyam sahab to incorporate them in the song. Khayyam sahab is said to have told Yash Chopra that neither his nor Sahir’s sensibility will allow him to use these two lines in the song. Yash Chopra told Khayyam that today’s younger generation likes such words in romantic songs. He then suggested Khayyam Sahab to discuss with Sahir Sahab and get it approved from him.

When Khayyam Sahab brought this issue to Sahir Sahab, he said this would spoil the song. Since Yash Chopra has given Khayyam sahab the task of getting Sahir’s approval, he had to convince him. He did so by making some changes in the tune and rearranging the the words.. Sahir Sahab reluctantly agreed to this addition.

[Source: Khaayam’s interview quoted in ‘Sahir Ludhianvi – The People’s Poet’ (2013) by Akshay Munwani.]

Incidentally, Sahir Sahab had refused to write a raunchy song in B R Chopra’s film ‘Dhund’ (1973). that song was finally written by the music director Ravi. The song was ‘jubna se chunariya khisak gayi re’.

Well researched, Mr. Kamath! Hopefully, Sahir Saheb never cringed whenever he heard the song, although he had reluctantly agreed to the rearrangement in words.

Mr. Atul’s article itself surprised me as it went into the socio-romantic aspects. Can a movie goer question why or how something has been portrayed? It is the story teller in the director that makes the movie what it is!
