“Amardeep” was a movie that was made by Shivaji Productions and directed by T. Prakash Rao in 1958. It was a remake of the Tamil “Amara Deepam” (1956) which also directed by T. Prakash Rao; which itself was a remake of the 1942 English film “Random Harvest” which was based on the novel of the same name by James Hilton. There was also a Bengali movie in 1957 “Harano Sur” on the same story. (all this information is thanks to Wikipedia) So that means there were audiences for this kind of sentimental stories.

The Tamil and Hindi versions had Padmini playing the character of Roopa who takes care of the hero- Dev Anand in Hindi and Shivaji Ganesan in Tamil- after he meets with an accident and forgets his past with Vyjayantimala (in Hindi) and Savitri (in Tamil). I had heard from my dad that he had seen the movie at the time of its release -first day first show and when the Tamil version released in a morning show (that was the name for the 9 or 10 A.M. show) he saw that too. I don’t remember what his review of the movie was but he had told me that the Hindi movie had 12 songs in it; the most popular one being “dekh humein awaaz na dena o bedard zamaane” having two versions.

Before I wrote this post, I sat through the movie. A decent movie, not exactly a tear-jerker but full of emotions on the part of the central characters. Plus, we have Pran putting in an act of possessive and hot- tempered “mangetar” (fiancé) of Vyjayantimala. So, there is scope for little fisticuffs at the climax. Then we also are surprised by the fact that the heroines are sisters who are separated in their childhood as the father gives away the younger daughter for cash to a wealthy man so that he can treat his sick elder daughter. And when the sisters, who are in love with the same man realise this, the elder one sacrifices her love and conveniently comes in the way when Pran fires at Dev Anand. There is a strained comedy track involving Johnny Walker and Mukri (which we could have done without). I hope this gives a brief idea about what the movie was all about. ??

There was one more reason for me to sit through this movie. I was trying to locate a song and its relevance in the movie. The song if it had ever been shot should have appeared here at 43:35 or thereabouts of the movie as we can see Dev and Vyjayantimala roaming around a mela and she has got some balloons in her hand. I was also trying to get the balloons (gubbaare) as it is the birthday of a keen follower of the blog. We also call him our in-house encyclopedia. Our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukh turns a year younger today(9 june 2018).

Wishing him a musical journey with us forever with this song by a singer- music composer about whom he has provided us vast information. Rajinder Kishan is the lyricist. It has an “Eena meena deka” feel to it. Specially the opening and interlude music piece. I would love to know if it was ever picturised, if so on whom and if not why such a lively song was left out of the movie, it would have lightened the proceedings.

Song-Le lo le lo gubbaare (Amardeep)(1958) Singer-C Ramchandra, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra


arre le lo le lo
lelo lelo gubbaare
le lo le lo
lelo gubbaare lelo
rang birange pyaare saare
rangbirange pyaare saare
le lo le lo lelo lelo gubbaare

sukde ko patle
arre phoole ko mote
darshan bhaari naam hai chhote
kaliyon se halke lelo
phoolon se pyaare lelo
rang birange pyaare pyaare
rangbirange pyaare pyaare
le lo
le lo
lelo lelo gubbaare

are peele
hai neele peele hare gulaabi
jhoome hawa mein jaise sharaabi
dole talab mein dole
saaqi ke dwaare dole
rangbirange pyaare pyaare
rangbirange pyaare pyaare
le lo le lo
lelo lelo gubbaare

baba bhi khele
aur baby bhi khele
jodi salaamat o baabu lele
chamke tumhaari waah waah
ulfat ke taare wah wah
rangbirange pyaare pyaare
rangbirange pyaare pyaare
le lo le lo
lelo lelo gubbaare aeeeee
