Hullo all in Atuldom

Saw a good clean movie with a straight forward story today. The story was almost as if inspired from the life of Valmiki.

Let me begin at the beginning. As I was writing my previous post on Hrishikesh Mukherjee I went through the filmography and saw that I had missed out seeing Sabse Bada Sukh; Arjun Pandit; Naukri; Achcha Bura; Naamumkin (of the 70s and 80s) and a few from the earlier decades. So, I decided since I have the time I shall see one today. But before that I was looking for songs where Sachin Dev Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri had collaborated and was also hoping that all the songs of this duo had not bee posted. And sure enough all the extremely popular albums – Paying Guest, Solva Saal, Lajwanti, Nau Do Gyarah, Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi etc- that the two have worked together on have made their appearance on the blog. So that left me with the 70s to put under the search engine (because post 31st October 1975 SD Burman was not there). The 70s have given us a few gems from this duo- Phagun, Abhimaan, Sagina, Arjun Pandit etc. and on running through “the list of songs moviewise and checking up the status of these movies I found we have one song posted from Arjun Pandit, all songs of Abhimaan, Phagun (3 out of 6) Sagina (all songs posted). That left only Arjun Pandit for my use. Then I checked up number of songs in the movie and one out of three are posted.

Bingo! Here is the next song. I sat through the uploaded version of the movie on YouTube – the actual movie might have been longer as the YouTube version had only two songs, so maybe some parts of the movie too, may have got edited on the way to the cyberworld. Was impressed by the star cast. More positive feelings when I saw the introduction of Bindu in the movie. And the good feeling didn’t diminish through the movie. Nothing could go wrong with the movie- after all Hrishikesh Mukherjee was the director, dialogues were by Gulzar, central character was played by Sanjeev Kumar. The rest of the cast were also good actors, even debutant actress Srividya (from the South Indian film industry).

A small introduction to Srividya. She was born in 1953 to the Carnatic classical singer M L Vasanthakumari and Tamil film comedian Krishnamurthy. She made her acting debut at a very young age as the family had financial problems as her father had to stop acting due to some illness. She was successful in all the four South Indian language cinemas. She was also an expert classical vocalist and had done playback singing in a few south movies. Her filmography says she has worked in 5 Bollywood movies and that “Jaise Ko Taisa” was her first Hindi movie. But the title card of “Arjun Pandit” says introducing “Srividya”. {Need experts to clarify this}.

Today’s song shows Srividya getting ready to receive her friend and Saajan. Very simple sweet lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri and simple orchestration by SD Burman. Only two singers were used in the movie- Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The Kishore Kumar song from this movie was posted on October 1, 2013 on the occasion of the lyricist and music director’s birthdate. {do we still have doubts about the birthdate of S D Burman as is mentioned by Bluefire in the comments to this posthttps://atulsongaday.me/2013/10/01/dil-mera-udaa-jaaye}

Oh, I just realized I have to explain about the Valmiki- inspiration angle to this movie. We have Sanjeev Kumar playing a henchman to the local Zamidaar (Rajan Haksar) who is dreaded by everyone in the village including his own daughter. Enter Ashok Kumar, as the doctor in the local village health centre and also a friend of the zamindar. His calm and loving nature inspires Sanjeev Kumar (Arjun Sardaar) to turn a new leaf, educate himself and make his daughter be comfortable when he is around. He goes on from being an illiterate strongman to a compassionate compounder to the doctor and finally also ends up looking after the family of the doctor as a responsible elder and family member would. So that then is the Valmiki part.

Song – Bolo Preetam, Kya Boli Thee Main Aage Re (Arjun Pandit) (1976) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – SD Burman
