‘Ulfat’ was the maiden offer from K Razdan, the producer. The film was directed by K Shankar, who had directed many Tamil and Telugu films apart from some Hindi films such as ‘Bharosa’ (1963), ‘Rajkumar’ (1964), ‘Sachaai’ (1969), ‘Parde Ke Peeche’ (1971), ‘Chhote Sarkaar’ (1974), ‘Raja’ (1975) etc. The main star cast consisted of Raaj Kumar, Sadhana, Waheeda Rehman, Nazir Hussain, Agha, Shammi, Gulshan Bawra, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Mohan Choti, Sundar etc.

K Razdan started his career as a film publicist and Public Relation Officer for some film productions houses and actors. He was associated with Guru Dutt Films, Ashok Kumar Films, Sippy Films, Sagar Films, Vishal International Productions of Manoj Kumar etc. ‘Ulfat’ was his maiden film as well as the last film as a producer. Why did the film ‘Ulfat’ which went to the floor sometime in early 1970s, take so much time to complete?

I had read an article on Raaj Kumar in ‘Daily Hunt’ in which there was a paragraph on Raaj Kumar creating problems for K Razdan, the producer during the shooting of the film. For trivial issues, Raaj Kumar used to have problems with other actors and crew members. For instance, Raaj Kumar did not like Cinematographer, G Singh for his habit of scratching his beard while filming the shoot. One can observe from the credit title of the film that there were 3 cinematographers listed for the film.

Fed up with his tantrums, K Razdan filed a suit in the court against Raaj Kumar. While it is not known as to what was the outcome of the suit, Razdan was happy that at least he made Raaj Kumar to sit on a wooden bench in the court room with commoners during the court hearings. K Razdan decided to expose Raaj Kumar by writing a book, ‘Nark Yatra’ sharing his experiences of working with Raaj Kumar. However, he refrained from publishing the book. Finally, in disgust, K Razdan abandoned the film left unfinished. He continued to work as film publicist and PRO in the Hindi film industry till 1990.

Raaj Kumar has been known for his eccentricity. His decision to take charge of the unfinished film in early 1990s with good amount of investment was nothing less than a part of his eccentric behaviour. He required Sadhana for shooting a college scene and a romantic song with him. However, she flatly refused to join the shooting. Her rejection is understandable as in early 1990s, Sadhana was around 50 and Raaj Kumar was 64. The audience would not have appreciated watching both of them in a college scene and singing a romantic song!

Finally, Raaj Kumar completed the film by using a double for shooting the unfinished scenes of Sadhana with long shots and her back to the camera in close-up scenes. Of other actors, only Waheeda Rehman agreed to resume shooting for her parts. The dialogues for the left-over scenes were written by Raaj Kumar himself. Panini, his younger son, provided the background music. Obviously, with a long delay in completing the film with patched-up works, the film was out of date. There were no takers for distributing the films. Finally, according to a comment on one of the songs uploaded on the video sharing platform, the film was released under a new title. ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) on VHS tapes in August 1994 for satellite TVs. I am not sure whether the film had a theatrical release anytime thereafter.

I have no idea about the story of ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994). Looking at the star cast of the film, the story appears to be a love triangle. All the 5 songs of the film which was released by HMV on LP in 1978 were retained in the film. 4 songs were written by Rajinder Krishan while one song which Qateel Shifai had already written for a Pakistani film in the early 70s was used with a new tune. All the songs were set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

I am presenting the first song, ‘bahaaron se kahenge nazaaron se kahenge’ from ‘Ulfat’ (1978, UR/‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi on the words of Rajinder Krishan. Kalyanji-Anandji composed the music. The song is picturised on Raaj Kumar and a double of Sadhana.

At first, I was not too keen to provide the link of the video clip of the song which was probably taken from VHS tape of the film. The visuals are very bad and audio quality is average. Also, it is a shorter clip than the audio clip which was released in 1978 under the film’s original title ‘Ulfat’. One can make out from the visuals in video clip that the female actor is not Sadhana but her double. The audio clip of the song is excellent in audio quality and is longer. In the audio clip, there is also a bonus addition of the sad version of the song with dialogues between Raaj Kumar and Sadhana.

With this song, ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) makes its debut on the Blog.

Good post giving insight into Raj “jaani” Kumar’s eccentricities.
I don’t know if it is a coincidence that our in-house encyclopedia gave us a background about Raj Kumar and his famous “Jaani” yesterday on the group. This is what he shared:-
In Hindi cinema after Sohrab Modi,it was Raaj kumar whose dialogues were popular. He was famous for his favourite word ” Jaani “. The other day,while going through the discussions on RMIM group on Google I found an interesting question,” Why Raaj kumar is called Jaani,when he never used this word in his film dialogues ? “. On checking thoroughly,one found that it was only in the film Saudagar and Tiranga,Raajkumar had used the word Jaani ,only once each. That’s all. Then why does this word become his identity ? The answer is, this word was used by Raajkumar in private conversations and interviews very frequently,that is why !!
Incidentally yesterday it was Raj Kumar’s birth anniversary. He would have been 94

I had read about Raaj Kumar on our Whatsapp group yesterday and I had reacted on the post with thumbs up. The dialogues writers of his films have picked up the word ‘Jaani’ from his personal talks.

One film journalist had quoted an instance during the shooting of ‘Saudagar’ (1993) when there was a rumour about Raaj Kumar suffering from cancer. A worried Subhash Ghai, after gathering enough guts, asked him about the rumour. Raaj Kumar replied:

‘Jaani, Raaj Kumar marega to zukaam se thhodi na marega, koi badi bimaari se hi marega na’.
So, he has used the word ‘Jaani’ while talking to Subhash Ghai.

I sometime feel that Raaj Kumar in reel life was using his real life personal dialogues with others.
