Birth Anniversary of R. D. Burman on 27/06/2021.
———————————————————–

Today morning I was thinking how there are a few songs from the films like ‘Betaab’ ‘Rocky’ etc that are not posted. With the same thought came the reminder of movies like ‘Love story’, in which Kumar Gaurav, the son of Jubilee star Rajendra Kumar, and Vijeta Pandit, the sister of Sulakshna Pandit, made their debut. There was a spate of star sons joining the movies at that time. Even Dev Anand launched his son, Manoj Kumar launched his brother. From what I read in magazines, these star sons had to learn film acting at Tanuja Chandra’s acting institute, where they were taught all type of things which included horse riding and fighting etc. They were also taught to speak Urdu, which was not part of their education otherwise.

Except for Manoj Kumar’s films, all such films had R D Burman’s music as he was believed to be the success formula of such films.

The senior stars would give interviews to “Shama’a”’s editor who went by the pen name ‘Musaafir’ about their son’s debut movie and their coaching in various skill required to be a successful hero. I am positive about having read these things about Rajendra Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Dev Anand and Dharmendra. Most of these star sons worked in some films for a few years, then they disappeared from films. Only Sanjay Dutt and Sunny Deol were more successful and they are still around.

The film “Love Story” ‘s starcast is Kumar Gaurav, Vijayta, Rajendra Kumar, Vidya Sinha, Danny Denzongpa, Amjad Khan, Jagdish Raj, T.P. Jain, Kamaldeep, Azad, Jezebel, Gufi Paintal, Farooque Shorty, Subhash, Amarjeet Sunder, Hangama, Shakeel, Laxman Thumre, Aruna Irani, Prem Kalra, Dev Kumar, Ram Mohan, Bharat Kapoor, Ram Sethi, Bina. The film is jointly directed by Rahul Rawail and Rajendra Kumar, with Rajendra Kumar producing the film. The music is by R. D. Burman and lyricist is the evergreen Anand Bakshi.

I have seen two duets from this movie now, of which only one song is posted. I have read this post, which talks of the twin solos of this film “Yaad aa rahi hai”, which was my personal favourite from this film. This song should also be posted soon.

But I am choosing one of the duets which I saw just now. Both have outdoor shooting and are expressive of various emotions and 5 minutes plus long. There was a short series of a sort I had planned for outdoorsy songs, which I seem to have waylaid. Links of many such songs are saved in my laptop.

In the film ‘Love story’, which I have seen in Minerva theatre when it was released, there is some triangle love story of Vidya Sinha, Rajendra Kumar and Danny Danzongpa. Vidya Sinha and Rajendra Kumar were to marry, but she ends up married to Danny, and Vijeta is their daughter. Rajendra Kumar marries someone else (Beena?) who is now dead, and Kumar Gaurav is the son. So, there is some animosity among the set of parents also, apart from villain.

Now between my husband and me, we have recalled the whole set of characters and their roles in the story. Vijetaa is a much pampered and cossetted daughter as Danny is very much possessive of her. Kumar Gaurav’s father is a little strict, but he knows how to spin stories around and not get a scolding. Kumar Gaurav sets his wrist watch an hour behind to hoodwink his father Rajendra Kumar upon being late for an event. Amjad Khan is the comic relief as the Hawaldar who arrests the two love birds, who have eloped in the 70’s fashion. This fashion or trend of eloping was truly started with ‘Bobby’. Now what Amjad Khan does is takes one “hathkadi” and ties them both together on one end each of hathkadi. This makes it easy for them to elope again, after being arrested. Dev Kumar is a friend or henchman of Danny Danzongpa, who is interested in getting Vijeta married to his son. So, he has more motive in separating the couple, to the extant even wanting to kill Kumar Gaurav. But all is well in the end, and it is a happy ending.

In the climax fight sequences, Kumar Gaurav saves the life of Danny and the latter is then convinced that Kumar Gaurav is the better bet for his daughter.

Lata Mangeshkar and Amit kumar are singing for Vijeta and Kumar Gaurav. The songs of this film were very popular back then. Lyrics are a breeze, as I remember them all, but have to do more work on the words interspersed and the singers voices. I am presenting this well written, composed and shot happy song in outdoor locales of maybe Manali or someplace near the himalaya’s which can be seen in the background, to commemorate the memory of Rahul Dev Burman on his birth anniversary.

Song-Dekho maine dekha hai ye ik sapna (Love Story)(1981) Singers-Amit Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics (as per audio version):

Dekho main ne dekha hai yeh ik sapna
phooolon ke shehar mein hai ghar apna
kya samaa hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
kitna haseen hai yeh ek sapna
phooolon ke shehar mein hai
ghar apna
kya samaa hai
tu kahaan hai

main aaya aaya aaya aaya
aa jaa aa

yehaan teraa meraa naam likkha hai ae
rastaa nahin yeh a’am likkha hai
ho yeh hai darwaaza
jahaan tu khadi hai
andar aa jaao
sardi badi hai

yehan se nazaara aa
dekho parbaton kaa
jhaankoon main kahaan se
kahaan hai jharokhaa

yeh yehaan hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
kitna haseen hai yeh ik sapna
phoolon ke shehar mein hai ghar apna
kya samaa hai
tu kahaan hai

main aaya aaya aaya aaya
aa jaa aa

achchha yeh bataao
kahaan pe hai paani ee

baahar beh rahaa hai
jharnaa deewaani ee
bijli nahin hai
yahi ik gham hai

teri bindiya kya
bijli se kam hai
chhodo mat chhedo
baazaar jaao

jaata hoon jaaungaa
pehle yehaan aao
shaam jawaan hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
dekho main ne dekha hai yeh ik sapna
phoolon ke shehar mein hai ghar apna
kya samaa hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa

kaisi pyaari hai yeh
chhoti si rasoyi ee

o ham donon hain bas
dooja nahin koyi ee
iss kamre mein
hongi meethhi baatein

uss kamre mein
guzrengi raatein
yeh to bolo hogi
kahan pe ladaayi

maine woh jagah hi
nahin banaayi
pyaar yehaan hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
kitna haseen hai yeh ek sapna
phoolon ke shehar mein hai ghar apna
kya samaa hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
dekho maine dekha hai yeh ek sapna
phooolon ke shehar mein hai
ghar apna

kya samaa hai
tu kahaan hai
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa
main aayi aayi aayi aayi
aa jaa aa

Slight correction to ur story Nahmji.
Dev Kumar is not Danny’s henchman. He is just a way-side thug out to make a quick buck by robbing Vijeta (who is in full bridal jewellery). U r correct abt the enmity between the fathers and the saving of Danny by Kumar Gaurav for the movie to have a happily-everafter end

Thank you for the correction. I bow to your superior memory powers. Dev Kumar was typecast in short bad man roles.

I feel like adding that we used to murder this song, inspite of loving it as: “main aayi aayi aayi, tu baba”.
Sorry Anand Bakshiji

Reminds of a parody of the “Zanjeer” song :

bana ke kyun bigaada re
bigaada re naseeba
uparwaale
Telpaade

“Telpade” was the name of the family in the flat directly above us, when I watched the movie ‘Zanjeer’ in 1981 on VCR.
