Hullo Atuldom

“Shankar Shambu” (1976) was directed by Chand for AK Movies and had Feroz Khan, Vinod Khanna, Sulakshna Pandit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Ajit, Anwar Hussain, Pradeep Kumar, Sulochana, Jayshree T. Jankidas, Sudhir, Lalita Pawar, Viju Khote etc. It was a bandit story which is in my list of movies to be seen. This movie had five songs three of which have been posted on this blog. All the songs were written by Sahir Ludhianvi a favorite lyricist of a few followers of this blog.

For me this movie gives me an opportunity to remember two very handsome actors on their death anniversary today 27th April. It was a talk of Bollywood that these two actors became friends during the making of this movie. They then came together again for Qurbani (1980). I am talking Feroz Khan and Vinod Khanna. It is said that FK was so impressed by VK that when he began his ‘Qurbani’ Vinod Khanna was an automatic choice for the role of Amar. When Feroz Khan remade Maniratnam’s ‘Nayakan’ in Hindi as “Dayavan” Vinod Khanna was there in that too. But what I didn’t relish was the way the two left this world. There are various videos available on YouTube where artists from the industry pay tributes to these two and can’t stop themselves from mentioning that these two left the world on the same date; only nine years apart.

The first two songs from this movie posted on the blog were tributes to Sahir by Avinashji and came in 2016. The third one came last year in June. Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced by Bindu. From the picturisation it looks like Shankar and Shambhu have had a tiff and at the same time Bindu seems to be pacifying Vinod Khanna and also looks like she loves him. We also see spoil-sport Anwar Hussain directing cops to the hideout of the bandits.

BTW Bindu also turned 79 this year on 17th April. Let us enjoy the short song. (looks rather short from the clip I found).



Song-Gar nibhaane ki himmat na thhi aap mein (Shankar Shambhu)(1976) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji


na jaao re ae ae ae
gar nibhaane ki himmat na thhi aap mein
gar nibhaane ki himmat na thhi aap mein
dil lagaana na thha
dil lagaana na thha
haath thhaama thha mera toh yoon raah mein
chhod jaana na thha
chhod jaana na thha
gar nibhaane ki himmat na thhi aap mein
na jaao re ae ae ae ae ae

toot jaaye jo pal mein woh ikraar kya
toot jaaye jo pal mein woh ikraar kya
jisko duniya ka darr ho woh dildaar kya
pyaar ki raah mein jab kadam rakh diya
pyaar ki raah mein jab kadam rakh diya
dagmagaana na thha
dagmagaana na thha
gar nibhaane ki himmat na thhi aap mein
dil lagaana na thha
dil lagaana na thha
gar nibhaane ki himmat na thhi aap mein

Hullo Atuldom
after sending this post i saw the movie and understood the context of the song.
Bindu (munnibai) is a courtesan who is in love with Shambhu (VK). hShe is brainwashed by Anwar Hussain into luring Shambhu to marriage. He also ties up with the police to send an inspector and constable with her when she goes to the dacoit’s den.
WHen she meet Shankar and Shambhu; Shankar (FK) being the older of the two refuses permission to the marriage. Also he asks Shambhu to choose between Munnibai and him. He assigns him the task of hiding their loot which is in the suitcase (looted from Anwar Hussain,the reason why Anwar Hussain went to the cops). Shambhu chooses to pickup the suitcase thereby giving indication to Munnibai about his loyalties. And that is why she sings this song and asks him: “Gar nibhaane ki himmat na thi aap mein”
By the time the song comes to a close the the cops who are incognito light a fire and send a signal to their team.
And Shambhu further realizes Munnibai’s treachery
