If someone pops up the name Jethalal, and asks for an identification, I am sure you will be puzzled to start with. Yes, surely a strange name, that many of the folks interested in Hindi films, will not be familiar with. This name belongs to the dear and popular actor of Hindi films – Sanjeev Kumar. His full real name was Harihar Jethalal Jariwala. Ah yes, now very familiar, right? 🙂

Remembering Sanjeev Kumar on the anniversary of his birth today. Had he been alive, he would have been 81 years old, having been born in the year 1938.

Sanjeev Kumar – an out and out product of stage and theatre, started his acting career at a very young age with IPTA (Indian People’s Theatre Association) and later continued with Indian National Theatre. He was born in Surat. The family moved to Bombay when he was young. After attending a training program at a local acting school, he joined the theatre while still in his late teens.

From the theatre, the progression to films was but natural for a performer as talented as he was. His first appearance was in the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ of 1960, in which he played a very small role. His first film as a hero was ‘Nishaan’ in 1965. For a few years his assignments were confined to C grade stunt and fantasy films. Then he 1968, he graduated into A grade cinema, with a sizeable role the 1968 film ‘Sunghursh’, alongside the likes of Dilip Kumar, Balraj Sahni, Iftekhar, Ulhas and Jayant. This year became a turning point in his career – ‘Raja Aur Runk’ became a runaway success, and ‘Anokhi Raat’ became the debut film of our blog. 🙂

The most powerful thing about Sanjeev Kumar’s performances has been that he never allowed himself to be typecast into any straitjacket. Whatever may have been the stage of his career, he willy nilly took such diverse variety of roles, regardless of the age and the temper of the character. When he was just 22, he played the role of a 60 year old in a stage play, father of 6 children. Positive or negative, he was simply concerned with a sincere portrayal. In ‘Anokhi Raat’ he plays the role of a dacoit. His comic roles are unforgettable – ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’, ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’, ‘Manchali’, ‘Angoor’, ‘Namkeen’, ‘Manoranjan’ . . . you name it. The diversity and the versatility of his performances is what brought the audiences into the cinema halls, just to see his roles. And for a surprising change, the viewing public never rejected him for his variety,

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. From the era when he was still in the C grade stunt and crime thrillers, ‘Gunehgaar’ is the film in which he plays the role of an upright police inspector. His love interest is Kumkum, who later turns out to be the daughter of Sheikh Mukhtar, a wanted gangster. The film takes certain interesting and predictable turns, given the specifics of the relationships, and it ends with note of ‘All Is Well, That Ends Well’.

The film is produced under the banner of Simla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. The cast of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, Sanjeev Kumar, Kumkum, Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmi Chhaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari.

The film has six songs, one of which – “Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase” is already showcased here on our blog. The songwriting credits are shared equally between Akhtar Romani and Naqsh Lyallpuri. This song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Vedpal.

The song comes in at the start of the romantic relationship between Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum – it is that initial getting to know each other type of song, performed partly on a beach and partly in a garden. Singing voices are Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. A liltling and a very hummable song. Listen and enjoy.

Lyrics

nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste

nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
ho chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste
nai nai hain manzilen

aaaa aaaaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaaa aaaaaaa

ik chaand humsafar mila
kitni haseen baat hai
wo haath khushnaseeb hai
jis mein tumhaara haath hai
hum aaj is tarah miley
dil ki haseen raah mein
laakhon hi chaand ho gaye
roshan meri nigaah mein
tamaam kaayenaat aa gai
meri panaah mein
nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste
nai nai hain manzilen

aaaaa aaaa aaaaaa aaaa
aaaaa aaaa aaaaaa aaaa

jhukti hui nigaah mein
meri wafaa ka raaz hai
naghma bani hain dhadkanen
dil mera ek saaz hai
dekha jo tum ne pyaar se
har phool muskura diya
mehki hui bahaar ne
sajde mein sar jhuka diya
nisar mein us husn ke
jis ne khuda bhula diya

nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste
nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste
nai nai hain manzilen

aaaaa aaaa aaaaaa aaaa
aaaaa aaaa aaaaaa aaaa

ooooo oooo oooooo oooo
ooooo oooo oooooo oooo

नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के
हमें खुदा के वास्ते

नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के
हमें खुदा के वास्ते
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें

आsss आssss आssssss
आsss आssss आssssss

इक चाँद हमसफर मिला
कितनी हसीन बात है
वो हाथ खुशनसीब है
जिस में तुम्हारा हाथ है
हम आज इस तरह मिले
दिल की हसीन राह में
लाखों ही चाँद हो गए
रोशन मेरी निगाह में
तमाम कायनात आ गई
मेरी पनाह मेँ
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के
हमें खुदा के वास्ते
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें

आssss आsss आsssss आsss
आssss आsss आsssss आsss

झुकती हुई निगाह मेँ
मेरी वफा का राज़ है
नग़मा बनी हैं धड़कनें
दिल मेरा एक साज है
देखा जो तुमने प्यार से
हर फूल मुस्कुरा दिया
महकी हुई बहार ने
सजदे मेँ सर झुका दिया
निसार मैं उस हुस्न के
जिसने खुदा भुला दिया

नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के
हमें खुदा के वास्ते
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के
हमें खुदा के वास्ते
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें

आssss आsss आsssss आsss
आssss आsss आsssss आsss

ओssss ओsss ओsssss ओsss
ओssss ओsss ओsssss ओsss

हम्ममम हम्म हम्मममम हम्म
हम्ममम हम्म हम्मममम हम्म

What coincidence. Both songs posted on the day are from different movies but with the same title.

Like

i was also going to tell the same thing.
and another coincidence is both are lesser known films of the respective years
even if the main lead in the 1995 movie was Mithun Chakravarty yesterday’s song was on Atulji 😉
and Sudhirji thank you for wishing Harihar Jethalal Jariwala a.k.a Sanjeev Kumar
i was feeling that we had missed the date
yesterday also the 94th birth anniversary of Vasanth Kumar Shivashankar Padukone

Ah yes, Arun ji

🙂 Agreed. And that also makes it his middle name. I used it as a teaser query to start the article.
