Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Paanch” was a movie that released towards the end of 1980. It was presented by S K Films Enterprises and was produced by Surinder Kapoor having Boney Kapoor as executive producer. It was directed by Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana known professionally as Bapu. It had a huge star cast headed by Sanjeev Kumar, Shabana Azmi, Deepti Naval, Amrish Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakravarthy, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Uday Chandra, Aruna Irani, Dulari, Gita Siddharth, Roopesh Kumar, A K Hangal and Kanhaiyalal along with a whole set of known faces that constitute the firmament of Bollywood’s supporting actors.

The movie was a remake of the 1978 Kannada film “Paduvaaralli Pandavaru” which in itself was an adaptation of the Mahabharata. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Playback singers used were also the gems of Bollywood: – Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Shailendra Singh, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Anwar and Usha Uthup.

The movie had around 8 songs and made its debut on the blog with this song/ post by Sudhirji in 2016. Its been 5 years since that post and it is high time we have another song, unfortunately I have found links to audios of all the songs. But I have seen these songs and movies eons back and so I can tell that today’s song is being lip synced by Naseer, Mithun, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover and Uday Chandra (playback was by Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh, Anwar and Suresh Wadkar). It has these youngsters protesting the tyrannical ways of the local Zamindar (Amrish Puri) who is helped in his mission of ruling the small region in rural India by his munim (Kanhaiyalal in one of his brilliant acts as Munim). The youngsters are guided in their job by Sanjeev Kumar playing Krishna who incidentally happens to be the brother of the Zamindar. I remember that the little sounds that are off-beat in the song (Amit Kumar’s voice) were lip synced by Mithun. How I wish we had the video, my personal recommendation would be to see the movie to enjoy the full essence of the songs and see actors like Gulshan Grover and Raj Babbar in ‘hatke’ (different) avatars.

We are having this song today to wish Raj Babbar on his 69th birthday; my initial reaction when I discovered his age was “Oh! Is he that old!!!” Next was almost all the actors who played ‘paandavs’ in “Ham Paanch” are in the same age bracket and this man, along with Gulshan Grover I suppose, are the youngest. Raj Babbar, who was born in Agra- UP, made his way to movies through NSD. He was first hated for the character that he played in B R Chopra’s ‘Insaaf Ka Tarazu’ in 1980 which released around the same time as ‘Ham Paanch’. Prior to that he had appeared in ‘Kissa Kursi kaa’.

He had around 7 releases in 1980 with ‘Aap Toh Aise Na the’; Insaaf Ka Tarazu’; ‘Sau Din Saas Ke’ and ‘Ham Paanch’ still being in public memory. He has appeared in a few Punjabi movies too. He is an actor who has played all kinds of characters- positive, negative and grey too. Sometime in the ’90s he switched to playing fatherly characters which could be negative too. He was a three-time member of the Lok Sabha and two-time member of the Rajya Sabha. His children Juhi and Arya from his wife Nadira and Prateik from Smita Patil (to whom he was married till her death due to complications in child-birth) are all actors. He has also produced a few movies.

If we had the video of the songs of this movie we would have also been able to the see the fantastic-large eyed-baritone voiced Amrish Puri in what he was excellent in that period. He would have turned 89 on 22nd June had he been around.

Here is wishing Raj Babbar health and happiness and thank you for entertaining us for close to 45 years.
Editor’s note:- With this song, Laxmikant Pyarelal now have 900 songs in the blog as music directors.

I also watched it on T V only and found it too strong or gross as modern children would say. Never seen it again. Among some movies which have never been shown on satellite television, otherwise I may have seen it again after being able to understand what is being shown in the movie. I have seen this song and “aati hain paalki sarkaar ki” a few times

I know the songs, but movie I have not seen. This was a popular song and the title song. I knew the lyrics, had thought of posting it sometime. Reminds me of ‘Do aur do paanch”. Disappointed, as the video is not available.

Raj Babbar is well remembered for his films like, ‘Waaris”, negative role in ‘Aitbaar’, ‘Prem Geet’, and his meaningful role in Dilip Kumar starrer ‘Mazdoor’. Filmography is quite extensive, with off beat films and commercial films in 80’s and 90’s decade. He is one of those lucky few from theatre background, who made it big in the 80’s.
