—————————————- ————————————————–

On the blog, other than sharing songs and posts for special occasions we also simultaneously work on ‘different projects’ from time to time. One of the projects that I have taken up is to introduce ‘movies having same titles’ on the blog.
We also combine launching of new ‘movie’ with special occasions like anniversaries of artists, actors, actresses etc.

Today I am presenting a song from the 1973 movie ‘Qeemat’. We already have a movie titled ‘Qeemat-1946’ on the blog and all its songs have also been covered on the blog.

Movies with the title ‘Qeemat’ (or ‘Keemat’) were also made in the year 1956 and later on recently in 1998.
However, I guess that the songs of the ‘Qeemat-1956’ are difficult to find and may be not available as of now.

Coming back to today’s movie and its song, the song is from ‘Qeemat-1973’ and it is picturised on lead pair of Dharmendra and Rekha of this movie.

Today 10th October is sixty-sixth birth anniversary (born on 10th October’1954) of Bhanurekha Ganeshan or Rekha as we fondly know her. So, today we wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Today’s song is from a movie of ‘1973’ i.e. a movie released almost forty-seven years back. Let us have a look on how this year was for Rekha and the movies she appeared on screen in this year;

SNo Movie Title Date Passed by Censor Board Director Co-Star
01 Anokhi Adaa 03.04.1973 Kundan Kumar Jeetendra
02 Barkhaa Bahaar 15.10.1973 Amar Kumar Navin Nischol
03 Dharmaa 23.11.1973 Chaand Navin Nischol
04 Double Cross 25.10.1973 Gogi Anand Vijay Anand
05 Kahaani Qismat Ki 19.12.1973 Arjun Hingorani Dharmendra
06 Kashamkash 21.11.1973 Feroz Chinoy Feroz Khan
07 Khoon Khoon* 02.06.1973 Mohammad Hussain
08 Namak Haraam 19.11.1973 Hrishikesh Mukherjee Rajesh Khanna
09 Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye 29.12.1973 Ali Raza Sunil Dutt
10 Qeemat 29.06.1973 Ravi Nagaich Dharmendra

*(as ‘Special appearance’)

We can see from the above details that she was paired with Dharmendra in ‘Qeemat’ and ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’. ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’ was one of the super-hit movies of that year.

I am not aware of the today’s movie ‘Qeemat’. I guess it was flop and forgotten movie.
I had watched this movie ‘Keemat-1973’ in 1985-1988 during my stay Parli-Vaijnath and I had earlier mentioned the same in my post here .

I do not remember the story of the movie now, nor do I remember how I felt about the moview back then. This movie was an action packed ‘spy thriller’ movie.

Dharmendra was known as ‘he-man’ those days. Considered the most suitable hero for ‘action packed’ movies, he was in the lead role in this movie along with Rekha, Prem Chopra and others.

1973 was a significant year in Dharmendra’s career as many of his movies released during 1973 were ‘super-hits’ and his roles in these movies were well appreciated.

The year preceding ‘1973’ and succeeding it were also successful years in his film career.
He was nominated for the ‘best actor’ ‘Filmfare award’ for ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat-1973’, however he did not win it.

Here let us have a look at the movies starring Dharmendra released in the year 1973 (in alphabetical order):

SNo Movie Title Date Passed by Censor Board Director Co-Star
01 Blackmail 28.11.1973 Vijay Anand Rakhi
02 Jheel Ke Us Paar 28.08.1973 Bhappi Soni Mumtaz
03 Jugnu 28.07.1973 Pramod Chakravarty Hema Malini
04 Jwaar Bhaataa 16.10.1973 A. Subbarao Saira Banu
05 Kahaani Qismat Ki 19.12.1973 Arjun Hingorani Rekha
06 Loafer 12.03.1973 A. Bhim Singh Mumtaz
07 Phaagun* 08.06.1973 Rajinder Singh Bedi Waheeda Rehman
08 Qeemat 29.06.1973 Ravi Nagaich Rekha
09 Yaadon Ki Baarat 05.10.1973 Nasir Hussain


*(as ‘Special appearance’)

‘Qeemat-1973’ or ‘Keemat-1973’was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti Internationals, Madras’. Ravi Nagaich had also done the photography of this movie. It was produced by P. Mallikharjuna Rao.

It had Dharmendra, Rekha, Prem Chopra, Rajendra Nath, Aagha, Satyen Kappu, Maruti, Murad, Puranik, J.N. Anand, Prem Kumar, Kirti Kumar, Subhash, Suhail, Arjun Kumar, Shabnam, Indira Bansal, Halam, Kalam, Munni, Rani, with Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Ranjeet.

K.N. Singh and Jayadev make a friendly appearance in this movie.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwamitra Adil while the story idea was by Ramjee. V.D. Puranik was the dialogue director for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by N.S. Prakasam.

This movie had total six songs composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. The lyrics for all the six songs were written by Anand Bakshi.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. (The titles of this movie mentioned the name of Ajit Singh in the list of singers, however HFGK Vol V doesn’t mentioned his voice in the songs of this movie in the list on the movie page of this movie).

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. I guess this song would have been the only somewhat ‘known song’ from this movie. Because I remember to have listened to it in my childhood years on the radios and so when I watched the movie in 1987-88, I remember to have heard it earlier.
However, this and other songs of this movie seem to be all forgotten because in the recent years also I have recollections of listening to them on radio.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

‘Qeemat-1973’ was passed by Censor Board on 29.06.1973 under ‘restricted viewing’ (A) certificate.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra and Rekha where Dharmendra in his ‘own’ style is requesting Rekha to forgive him 😊

Let us now listen to this song…!!!

With this song ‘Qeemat-1973’ makes its debut on the blog. 🙂

Avinash Ji, this once again is a pure nostalgia song and movie for me. 1973 was a huge year in terms of movies and music (HFM)!! I am feeling a bit sheepish in saying this but I have seen all the movies mentioned on both the lists, many of them as first day first show!!

Good one!!

Keep them coming!!
