Welcome all to today’s post where I am presenting a song from the 1993 movie ‘Gardish’. I like this song very much. I had shared this song long time back but it was yet to be to be posted on the blog. This song is penned by Javed Akhtar.

Today 17th January 2020 is the 75th birth anniversary of Writer, Poet and Lyricist Javed Akhtar who was born on 17th January 1945 at Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh).

We on the blog wish him a ‘very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’…

Javed Akhtar who started his film career as a ‘screen play’ writer with Salim Khan, came from a family of Poets. His father Jan Nisar Akhtar was an Urdu poet and lyricist while his grand father and his great grand father’s elder brother were also a poet.

The pair of Salim-Javed has given Hindi movies many successful and milestone movies working together including hits like ‘Andaz-1971’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’, ‘Deewaar’,’Sholay-1975’ etc. I am not going to list them all here in this post for today, and maybe we will have a separate post on this in the future.

After separating from Salim Khan (in 1981-1982), Javed Akhtar continued writing for movies as an independent screen writer and has been a part of many successful movies like ‘Betaab-1983’, ‘Mashaal-1983’, ‘Saagar-1985’, ‘Arjun-1985’, ‘Meri Jung-1985’, ‘Dacait-1987’, ‘Main Aazaad Hoon-1989’ etc.

After writing for movies he moved on to writing lyrics for the movies. He began his journey as a lyricist with the movie ‘Silsila-1981’ and till the latest movie to be released next week i.e. ‘Panga-2020’ he has penned lyrics for more than one hundred movies (if the information available in the domain is correct ‘Panga-2020’ will be his 111th movie as a ‘Lyricist’). As a lyricist he has given us many many memorable songs and many songs which have a high ‘poetic’ value.

His lyrics for the movies ‘Saaz-1996’, ‘Border-1997’, ‘Godmother-1998’, ‘Refugee-2000’, and ‘Lagaan-2001’ fetched him the ‘Best Lyricist’ award at the National Awards of that year.

He has also won many ‘filmfare’ awards for his ‘screen writing’ and ‘lyrics writing’ which I am not listing them all here. And instead will come back on the movie details for the today’s song.

‘Gardish-1993’ was presented by ‘Good Knight Films’. It was produced by R. Mohan and directed by Priyadarshan.

Priyadarshan also wrote the ‘screen play’ of this movie.

The movie had Jackie Shroff, Amrish Puri, Farida Jalal, Shammi Kapoor, Kunika, Asrani, Dimple Kapadia, Raj Babbar, Rakesh Bedi, Tej Sapru, Anand Mahadevan, Suresh Oberoi, Annu Kapoor and Shagufta Ali. This movie introduced Aiswarya (from South) and Mukesh Rishi.

Story of this movie was written by A.K. Lohitadas. Its dialogues were written by Suraj Sanim.
Viswanathan Vaduthala, Mohan Payyanoor, Vijay. K. Bhavan, Sonu Sisupal were assistants in direction. Also, there were II- & III-unit directors – R.R. Shinde and Murali Nagavally respectively.

Editing of this movie was done by N. Goplakrishnan. Santosh Sivan was the Director of Cinematography of this movie.
Choreography of this movie was done by Sundaram, Prabu Deva and Suchitra.

Back ground music was scored by S.P. Venkatesh.

Lyrics were penned by Javed Akhtar and music was composed by R.D. Burman. The movie had six songs.
Asha Bhonsle, M.G. Sreekumar and S.P. Balasubramaniam had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19th August 1993 and it was a remake of Malayalam movie ‘Kireedam’. It’s remake was also made in Telugu, Kannada before the Hindi version and later in Bengali and Tamil.

I had watched this movie twice then – once at Kota (I was staying at Kota then) and once at Indore during my ‘in-transit’ halt their while travelling from Kota to Parli-Vaijnath.

I liked this movie very much then as it had some powerful performances especially by Jackie Shroff, Amrish Puri, Dimple Kapadia and Mukesh Rishi and others too. I would also mentioned the role played by Annu Kapoor wherein he is playing an educated unemployed who accidentally become a ‘beggar’ for survival, but capitalizing on it he went on to employ many educated unemployed into his ‘business’(empire of ‘bhikharis’😊, and he also ‘innovatively’ deputes each of them according to their ‘relevant qualification’ for placement of ‘begging’ at a particular ‘location/field’.

It’s a ‘cynical comedy’ type role and Annu Kapoor has given his very best in this role.

For those who have not watched this movie I would sum-up the storyline in the following –
– The tagline on the posters of the movie – ‘Wanted to be a man of law, now wanted by the law’ i.e. the protagonist in the movie – the hero- Jackie Shroff.
– Amrish Puri, who plays the father to Jackie Shroff in this movie, is a Havaldar in Police and always dreaming of his song becoming a Police Inspector (the movie starts with this scene in Police Station …)
– However, life takes a turn for the hero who was an aspiring Police Officer who took on ‘criminals’ to save his Father first, then his Sister and finally ending up killing the goon … Shiva (Jackie Shroff) is arrested by Police for the offence…
– The movie ends with Amrish Puri submitting a police verification report for his son’s Police Job to his senior Suresh Oberoi mentioning that as per the police verification report Shiva (Jackie Shroff) cannot become a police officer since he is a ‘criminal’ now …

(The film won two Filmfare Awards—Best Art Direction (Sabu Cyril) and Best Action (Thyagarajan), and was nominated for Best Actor (Shroff), Best Supporting Actor (Amrish Puri), and Best Supporting Actress(Dimple Kapadia, as per information available on ‘wiki’.)

The songs of this movie composed by R.D. Burman were nice and I like them. ‘Rang Rangeeli Raat’ by Asha Bhonsle and the words (in some foreign language, I think) reminds the song ‘dil ki manzil kuchh aisi hai manzil’ from ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne-1963’.

The other songs were also good. And the one that I am presenting today was my favorite song from this movie. The song keeps growing on as we listen to it more and more.

I had then (in 1993) got this one song recorded six times on one side of the cassette. I am sure, our readers will also like this song. The song has some beautiful meaningful verses penned by Javed Akhtar.

This song is sung by S.P. Balasubramaniam and composed by R.D. Burman.

Let us now enjoy today’s song from “Gardish”(1993).

Song-Ham na samjhe thhey baat itni si(Gardish)(1993) Singer-S P Balasubrahmanyam, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si ee
Khwaab sheeshe ke
Duniyaa patthar ki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe ae
Baat itni si
Khwaab sheeshe ke
Duniyaa patthar ki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si ee

Aarzoo hamne ki to ham paaye
Aarzoo hamne ae ki to ham paaye
Roshni saath
Laayee thhi saayein
Saaye gehre thhe
Roshni halki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe ae
Baat itni si
Khwaab sheeshe ke
Duniyaa patthar ki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si ee

Sirf veeraani
Sirf tanhaayee
Sirf veeraani
Sirf tanhaayee
Zindagi hamko
Ye kahaan laayee
Kho gayee hamse ae
Raah manzil ki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si
Khwaab sheeshe ke
Duniyaa patthar ki
Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si ee

Kyaa koyee beche
Kyaa koyee baante ae
Kyaa koyee beche
Kyaa koyee baante
Apne daaman mein
Sirf hain kaante
Aur dukaanein hain
Sirf phoolon ki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si
Khwaab sheeshe ke
Duniyaa patthar ki ee
Ham naa samjhe thhe
Baat itni si ee

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
—————————————

हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी ई
ख्वाब शीशे के
दुनिया पत्थर कि ई
हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी
ख्वाब शीशे के
दुनिया पत्थर की ई
हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी ई

आरज़ू हमने की तो हम पाएं
आरज़ू हमने की तो हम पाएं
रौशनी साथ
लायी थी सायें
सायें गहरे थे
रौशनी हलकी ई
हम ना समझे थे ए
बात इतनी सी
ख्वाब शीशे के
दुनिया पत्थर की ई
हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी ई

सिर्फ वीरानी
सिर्फ तन्हाई
सिर्फ वीरानी
सिर्फ तन्हाई
ज़िन्दगी हमको
ये कहाँ लायी
खो गयी हमसे ए
राह मंजिल की ई
हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी
ख्वाब शीशे के
दुनिया पत्थर की
हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी ई

क्या कोई बेचे
क्या कोई बांटे ए
क्या कोई बेचे ए
क्या कोई बांटे
अपने दामन में
सिर्फ हैं कांटे
और दुकानें हैं
सिर्फ फूलों की ई
बात इतनी सी
ख्वाब शीशे के
दुनिया पत्थर की ई
हम ना समझे थे
बात इतनी सी ई

Avinash Ji
Thank you for the post. And good song selection too. One of RD’s work of the time when he was in his lean phase. Wish the movie had fared better then it may have boosted RD’s confidence.
This used to be a popular song and was ranked high in the Superhit Muqabla that used to be on DD metro. But as we always say the fate of the movie sealed the fate of the songs.
I had Amrish Puri in that movie
