I remember, when I was a growing child, I used to hear the name of film personality called ‘Sajjan’ by elders at home, or likeminded cine-goers who were family friends of my parents.
I used to wonder who exactly this person was in the movies I was watching. It continued for many years and all this while I had no clue about this person.

When I was a grown-up boy (😉) and was studying in 11-12th standard I watched ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ in 1983-85. And here for the first time I get to know who exactly the actor named ‘Sajjan’ was. After that whichever movies new and older I watched I enjoyed his performance on screen. In the background his image of a good character actor (that build up in my mind from the discussions at home) was always there in my mind. So, I was also enjoying his negative roles in many black & white movies of fifties and sixties.

Aftergoing through his filmography, I can recall watching many of these movies where he played various roles particularly with negative shades or sometime being the associate of the of the main villain of the movie, or the different character roles.

But before that he had acted as a hero or second to the hero in the movies of fifties and sixties. There is a long list of the movies he was a part of; however, I am not listing them all here today.

Regulars on this blog would wonder why I am discussing Sajjan today. The reason is- today (15 January 2020) is his birth anniversary.

Sajjan Lal Purohit was born on 15th January 1921 in Jaipur, Rajasthan (then Jaipur State of British India). That way today marks his 100th birth anniversary.

I had not read about him in the details and maybe he must have been discussed on the blog which I might not be aware of, so I have taken some information from Wikipedia and reproducing the same here.

Wikipedia mentions that he graduated from the Jaswant College, Jodhpur and he desired to become a lawyer and not an actor.

Wikipedia also mentions the following regarding his career in the movies;

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films such as Masoom (1941) and Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Mumbai. In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time, the great showman Raj Kapoor was also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and Vakil Sahib and got Rs.35 as salary.
A poet by heart, Sajjan showed his talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena (1944) and lyrics for Door Chalen (1946) and Dhanyavad (1948). Sajjan also acted in small roles in Prithvi Theatre. His acting debut film was Dhanyavad. After that, Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. The heroine was Nalini Jaywant.
By then Sajjan was well established in the films. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films such as; Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, Paridhaan, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diiwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam Jhanjhar and Halla-Gulla. As hero, his last film was Kabuliwala, Do Chor, and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru with Rajesh Khanna. An artist of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram Aur Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

I had watched many episodes of ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ on TV and I liked Sajjan playing Betaal very much.

Sajjan passed away at the age of seventy-nine on 17th May’2000 in Mumbai (then Bombay).

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ which was picturized on him (part-1 of the song). I had noted this song long time back but recently when I was going through the list of pending songs and came across this song, I watched it again and noted that it was Sajjan who was lip-syncing this song so I thought to present it on his anniversary.

This song is shown happening in a ‘village temple’ as a part of ‘sandhya-aarti-bhajan’ where Sajjan and many others are present (villagers and temple associates). A grief-stricken Jeetendra is also seen taking resort in the temple and sitting in ‘dhyaan’ while listening the ‘bhajan’ and I think he remains in this situation for a long time (😊) because by the time the song ends Jeetendra had a ‘beard’ of many days.

Part-2 of the song is played in the back-ground while Jeetendra is shown lying on a hospital bed, but as the song gets played, he regains some strength to leave the hospital without caring the ‘staff’ present there and reach the temple after crossing ‘fields’ etc.

HFGK mentions this song as a one song and not in parts.

I have not watched this movie so I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

So far, two songs from this movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is from the movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ as mentioned above. Lyrics are by Neeraj and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.
Manna Dey is the singer of this song.
