Blog Day:

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that I knew little about when I was growing up. I watched this movie in 1978 when my went to college and my movie watching spree began with a vengeance. Those days, I only liked “new” movies and songs and scoffed at “old” movies and songs. But I had heard about old movies, so I would go and watch them when no “new” movie was there for me to watch. The old movies tended to run to empty house and so buying tickets for these movies was not a problem. I wondered if a day will come in future when one would be able to watch “new” movies with the same ease, without needing to queue up and black marketeers having a field day. Believe it or not, today we are actually in that situation where one can buy tickets of even brand new movies without needing to form a queue in the movie hall.

I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in a movie hall called Ratan Talkies. I knew that it was an old movie but still I mustered up enough tolerance within me and went to watch the movie. I was a few minutes late and the movie had already started. When I found that the movie had Raj Kumar (tragedy Kumar) and Meena Kumari (tragedy queen), I wondered if I had made a mistake and I would have to spend a misery filled three hours in the hall. But as soon as the songs of the movie began, I as well as others exclaimed-“arre ye gaana is film ka hai !”. Songs kept coming one after another, with the same collective response from the movie watchers.

Seeing that I had become a regular movie watcher only in that year, I had a lot of catching up to do. I was not aware about many of the actors that were there in the movie. Today, when I look back at the starcast of “Kaajal”(1965), I realise that it was full of big name actors. But when I was watching the movie at that time, I could identify only Raj Kumar, Meena Kumari and Dharmendra, aand that was all !

The movie had eleven songs in it. As many as ten songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

I came to know thanks to some whatsapp messages that today (12 june) is the birthday of Padmini (12 june 1932-24 September 2006). When I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in the movie hall. I had no clue about her. I did not even know that the actress seen in a few songs in the movie was Padmini.

On the occasion of Padmini’s birth anniversary, here is the eleventh and final song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as an archtypical get together song in a palatial home where people gather and politely watch a lady singing (while holding a sitar) and another lady dancing. In this song, Meena Kumari lip syncs while Padmini dances. Look at the people watching the performance. During those days, I did not even recognise Durga Khote !

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that was worth watching for its songs. Today, I would go to the extent of saying that only the songs of the movie must be watched. The story is too melodramatic for me. 🙂

Many decades later (after I began this blog), I came to know that Padmini had two more sisters and they too were dancing stars like her, and that together they were known as Travancore sisters.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, songs of “Kaajal”(1965) are now fully represented in the blog and this movie joins the list of movies that are YIPPEED in the blog.

Laltha, Padmini, and Raagini were the three sisters, in that order. They all acted in movies, mostly in Tamil, but also in Telugu. Like (just about) all young girls in Tamilnadu, they all learned carnatic music and bharata naatyam.

Lalitha acted in the Telugu film ‘Devadaasu’, as the courtesan, the role played in the Bimal Roy’s version by another Tamilian, Vyjayanthimala.
