Hullo to all in Atuldom

My post today (27 april 2018) should be read after reading what our dear Rajaji wrote last year in this post of his. In there he has poured a lot of love for the handsome actor- producer- (and lastly) a politician. He has spoken for all the fans of Vinod Khanna.

It is simply unbelievable that a year has passed since this most charming actor passed away. I remember how shocked I was on reading the news on our WhatsApp group that day. The news must have broken on the news channels about noon, around the time when Vividh Bharati – All India Radio’s commercial channel- starts their farmaishie filmy gaane etc. I used to have this habit of listening to this programme, with headphones on, as I commute around (I have stopped it since). Now that day, I was most happy with the content of the programme as every single song was from a Vinod Khanna movie and all of which I simply love. It occurred to me that those songs were being played as a tribute to the departed artist, only when I read all the WA messages on returning home. It was very very saddening. But then life is like that, and apparently Vinod was ill for sometime before his death. And as Rajaji has mentioned in his post last year, there were photographs being shared on social media of a rather sick Vinod, but I always thought that must be a look for some forthcoming movie. But that was not how it was to be.

I cannot forget the look on his face when he is listening to the recorded message from his wife. And then the pain on discovering that his wife has been unfaithful- in Gulzar’s song less wonder “Achanak”. Can remember how he smartly outwits Jeetendra’s father as villain in “Anokhi Ada”. Thinking of him singing “nainon mein darpan hain darpan mein koi dekoon jise subaha shaam” with Saira Banu on a cycle in “Aarop”.

After having made his debut in 1968 through Sunil Dutt’s “Man Ka Meet” and doing roles of secondary characters as Manoj Kumar’s friend in “Purab Aur Paschim”; Shammi Kapoor’s younger brother who loses track of ‘good and bad’ in “Jaan Pehchaan”; an inspector out to nab the smuggler (Rajesh Khanna) in “Sachha Jhootha”; and a few villainous characters we saw him as a confused educated unemployed man in “Mere Apne” which was followed by “Achanak” and a small blink and miss role in “Parichay”- all of which were made by Gulzar. No mention of Vinod Khanna is complete without thinking of the “Jabbar Singh” he played in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh”- he was unforgettable, he is unforgettable, we can’t forget him.

How can we forget him- when the radio plays “priye praneshwari” or “koi hota jisko apna” or “bambai se aaya mera dost” or “ruk jaana nahin tu kahi haarke” or “darbaar mein uparwaale ke” or “bhaagi re bhaagi re brijbala kanha ne pakda rang dala” or “lagi aaj saawan ki phir who jagi hai” and all the other famous and not so famous songs featuring him.

Though his pairing with Amitabh was always enjoyed we cannot forget that he paired well with Feroz Khan, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Sunil Dutt etc. As I was writing this post I wondered if he has never worked with Sanjeev Kumar and I saw that among yesterday’s posts is a song from “Chowkidaar” which had Sanjeev Kumar and VK is also there. The later year heroes Govinda, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan etc also co-starred with him playing an elder brother or father figure to them. He has done more than two movies each with most of the heroines of his era; be it Leena Chandavarkar, Bharati, Saira Banu, Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Parveen Babi, Reena Roy, Shaban Azmi, Rekha, Yogita Bali etc. and in his second innings Dimple Kapadia, Meenakshi, Madhuri, Madhavi, Jaya Prada, Sridevi etc. God, he had a good career and we were well entertained by him.

“Kudrat” was one of the movies where he co-starred Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini. It also had Raaj Kumar and Priya Rajvansh in important roles. It was directed by Chetan Anand and had rebirth as its theme. It had great songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Qateel Shifai and R D Burman was the music director. The song with this post is written by Majrooh and sung by Suresh Wadkar and Asha Bhonsle. It is a typical pahadi folk song performed by local dancers and as is the norm in Indian films the stars in the audience are drawn in to dance and shake a hip or leg with the performers. So, we can see Vinod Khanna starting the dance and trying to drag Hema Malini into it. This is followed by Aruna Irani (who plays the missing link between the two births of the main characters) Rajesh Khanna and Priya joining in. The song is meant to transport Hema into memories of her past birth and give her hints of link between Madho and Paro, Vinod catches Hema staring at Rajesh Khanna. And from here the story moves towards what the purpose of the movie is – getting justice for Madho and Paro (Rajesh and Hema) for the crime done to them by Raaj Kumar, father of Priya in this movie.

Thinking of the handsome Vinod Khanna today.

Peevesie’s Mom ji,

You have developed into an expert “post” Master !
The way you jumped to this level is highly commendable. A result of hard work, determination and passion, I suppose.
Good.
I enjoyed reading your today’s post on your favourite actor Vinod Khanna. I say ‘ your’, because initially I too liked him very much, but later on became a common stuff.
-AD

Thank you so much for your kind words. It is very encouraging
