Dev Anand – 97th Birth Anniversary
—————————————————–
Dharamdev Pishorimal Anand (26 September 1923 – 3 December 2011), is the full name of the dashing, debonair yet chocolate hero of the 50’s, also nicknamed as the ever green actor, he was a hero, director, producer and what not. He is known for never say die attitude and being a gentleman of the old world sense. He formed a trio of superstars with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor in the black n white era.

He was like a shining star which kept shining when all his neighbour, were laid down by age, health and simply lack of motivation. In the old ways, the culture of the film industry was about respect of seniors, treating others including junior artists, with respect and values which were based on humanity and equality in opportunities etc. The background of Dev Anand is an educated family of means. Plus that was an erawhen people with means had rich tastes and it converted into their conduct and dealing with fellow human beings. I have no knowledge how charitable or not Dev Anand himself was, because charity is not just sharing of monetary wealth, but sharing of positivity and knowledge also amounts of charity. Of course, there are people with such meanness in their makeup they will not lift an eyebrow, to facilitate someone else. And if such a person did lift an eyebrow, and someone else was slightly benefitted from it, the former will not like it. Ah…. I don’t know where I am going with this, but this is not towards Dev Anand.

I have recently seen his movies, “Kaala Bazaar” “Manzil” and “Kaala Paani” on youtube. Other unforgettable movie are such classics as “Guide”, “Tere Ghar Ke Saamne , “Jewel theif”, etc. I have read the Wikipedia page on Dev Anand. As I read through it, things got curious, as there is not filmography there. Very few films are mentioned, some of them I am yet to see. Zeenat Aman finds a mention as being discovered by him, but there is no mention of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. Also I found amiss the mention of his brothers Vijay Anand and Chetan Anand who were instrumental in his life and career. No mention of his great equation with SDB-RDB and Kishore Kumar.

There is also this line :
“Guru Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Pran, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Nargis, Kishore Kumar, S.D. Burman and R.D. Burman were his closest friends from the film industry.” If a man is known by the company he keeps, than there are no better examples.

The song I am presenting as a tribute to Dev Anand on his 97th birth anniversary is from the film “Amir Garib” (1974). The song comprises of two separate solos, by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, which are the mirror images of each other. The song picturization and the lyrics are also mirroring each other. Both songs are picturised on Dev Anand and Hema malini, singing the two solos. With colourful clothes, a beach, an open jeep on the beach, than the Swimming pool at the Sun & Sand just beyond the Juhubeach(Common in both songs, with extra’s looking like Europeans in colourful swim suits) and a park road with a tonga ride. This is a beach song, tonga song, car song swimming pool song, teasing song, pacifying song all rolled into one.

About version songs which are mirror image of each other, I can recall one song from the film “Himalaya ki god mein”
.
The following three songs from “Ameer Gareeb”(1974)are already posted in the blog :

The post is by Peevesie’s Mom which has a synopsis of the film. Another trivia is that the first song from this movie appeared on the blog as early as 21.06.2009, within its first year.

hohohoho

sajni ameer saajan gareeb
sajni ameer saajan gareeb

I have always loved this jodi. And Dev Anand also- otherwise how do we explain “Shareef Badmash”, “Joshilaa”, “Johnny Mera Naam”. She was there with him in his “Sachhe ka Bol Bala” in 1989 and “Censor” in 2001

Thanks for the post Nahm ji. Like the post very much and this song was quite frequently heard on loudspeakers during festivals then. Nice hummable song.
My father was a great fan of Dev Anand and so we are are his fans. There is not a single day when a Dev Anand song is not played in our home, though my father has already left us in 2011.
And such great songs from his movies. Even the newer generations like them. Like my daughters have their own Dev Anand songs as favorites … hai apna dil to aawaara, main zindagi ka saath nibhaata chalaa gaya and phoolon ke rang, se and yes dil ka bhanwar kare pukaar , many many 🙂
I have watched many of this movies including the older ones from B/W era and have cd’s in my collection too.

The today’s song also bring back memories of childhood to me.
Regards,
