Hullo Atuldom

“Dil Deewaana” (1974); written as ‘Dil Diwana’ in the movie’s titles; was a Rose Movies production i.e. Ramesh Behl was the producer and Narendra Bedi was the director. Though people feel it was a sequel of the successful “Jawaani Deewaani” (1972) I don’t think so.

The similarities in the two movies are the producer, director, main lead, music composer and lyricist were the same. While “Jawaani Deewaani” dealt with love between college-mates, family misunderstandings, and ‘rich-girl not-so-rich boy’ theme, “Dil Deewaana” had a rich, spoilt, playboy who tries to mend his ways when he encounters a girl working in his office. As per the norms of Hindi movies, Indian movies will be more appropriate, the girl is not-so-poor, is economically responsible for the day-to-day living of her family and is unimpressed with the economic standing of the boy. The rich boy Vijay (Randhir Kapoor), decides to introduce Nita (Jaya Bhaduri) to his doting grandma (Durga Khote) when his past catches up with him in the form of Gita (Aruna Irani), her brother Pyarelal (Manmohan) and an infant. There is one more character in this film Sunita (played by Komal a.k.a. Poonam Sinha) to add to the woes of the hero. All-in-all a normal masala movie which I recall having seen ages ago, during the days when doordarshan was the only channel available.

What has remained with me from that movie is Jaya Bhaduri playing a girl who had a mind of her own and made decisions for herself. In fact, she was one of the actresses in the ’70s, who played such roles very often and whose standing was on-par with her male co-star. I wouldn’t say that she was a great dancer like her contemporary Hema Malini (Jaya Bhaduri could put the correct foot forward and be in rhythm) but she was good in all other aspects.

I must admit that I was not a huge fan of hers, but I loved her in all the movies that I saw including “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham” (2001) with which she made a comeback to commercial movies. She had already restarted acting with “Hazaar Chaurasi ki Maa” in 1998 but that was essentially an art or middle-of-road movie which went unnoticed by the masses.

She is a Padma Shri winner along with a few Filmfare best actress awards to her name. She has been in the Hindi industry since 1971 when ‘Guddi’ released where she played a sweet, film-crazy teenager who is in love with her matinee idol Dharmendra. Of course she had already acted in a few Bengali movies before ‘Guddi’.
With this post we wish her on her 73rd birthday and also on completing 50 years in Bollywood.

‘Dil Deewaana” had six songs of which the blog has the following two:-

Song Date of posting
Jaa re jaa bewafa 9 April 2014
Sun Neeta main tere pyaar ke geet gaane lagaa hoon 30 April 2014

Today’s song is in a discotheque. We have Jaya in loud make-up but still looking dainty, pretty and cute. The song happens post Jaya inhaling some intoxicating smoke from Sharat Saxena. The song has all the elements that RD Burman was known to put in his songs- catchy tune, lot of ups and downs for the singer to race her voice through and she (Asha Bhosle) doesn’t disappoint. We have flashbacks of this song from Caravan (1971) in terms of insanely sane choreography. And it is to Jaya Bhaduri’s credit that she has pulled it off amazingly. Wish she had been offered more such dances and run-of-the mill glamour-doll roles, I wonder how she would have performed them.

@Peevesie’s Mom ji – I think I am listening this song first time. Thanks for introducing this to us. I like the music of R.D. Burman. I do not know much about this movie and its songs too.
Regards,

Not surprised that you haven’t heard this before. Was not so popular, don’t know if it was even played on the radio
