#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

Today 24th July 2021 is the eighty-fourth birthday (born as Harikishan Giri Goswami on 24th July’1937) of actor Manoj Kumar.
I have mentioned it in my earlier posts that Manoj Kumar and his movies have a special place in our heart or in the heart of those, who like me, have grown during the decade of seventies.

People of my generation got to see his earlier movies as well as his movies made when he was on the verge of retirement.

I mentioned earlier movies of Manoj Kumar because old black and white movies of 1960s and 1950s used to have their re runs on screens in 1970s, sometime in one or two shows, and sometimes even in full regular shows in theatres.

We may not have got the opportunity to his initial movies like ‘Fashion’, ‘Sahaara’, ‘Panchayat’, ‘Kaanch Ki Gudiya’, ‘Piya Milan Ki Aas’ etc, But we have been fortunate to get to watch his movies like ‘Woh Kaun Thhi?’, and ‘Hariyaali Aur Raastaa’ from the black and white era.

We also got to watch ‘Gumnaam’, ‘Upkaar’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Purab Aur Paschhim’, ‘Pehchaan’, ‘Roti Kapdaa Aur Makaan’, ‘Sanyaasi, ‘Dus Numberi’, ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’, etc.

I may have seen some more of his movies too with elders without realising it as I was still a child. Some songs from such movies have been in my memory since my childhood. E.g., ‘ik taaraa boley sun sun sun, kya kahe tumse’ from ‘Yaadgaar-1971’. I do not remember to have watched this movie, but this song keeps haunting me as if I had watched it.

I cannot forget my uncles teasing me with the song ‘Ye Gangaram ki samajh mein naa aaye’ in my childhood, may be because I was a ‘gol-matol-healthy boy’ 😊

There were some old movies which used to get screened in noon shows in the seventies and eighties. That is how I got to watch ‘Do Badan’, ‘Saawan Ki Ghataa’, ‘Patthar Ke Sanam’, ‘Anita’, ‘Amaanat’, ‘Neel Kamal’, when I was a grownup boy.

His movies when he was on the verge of retirement included ‘Kalyug Aur Ramayan’, and ‘Clerk’ etc. In between I remember I had watched ‘Shor’, ‘Mera Naam Joker’, ‘Be-imaan’ and ‘Pehchaan’ on VCR.

But I am sure I had not watched today’s movie i.e., ‘Balidaan-1972’. Also, I could not remember if I had listened to any songs of this movie except today’s song, which I think I must have heard earlier.

“Balidaan-1971” was directed by Ravi Tandon for ‘Verma Films Enterprises, Bombay’. It was produced by Aroon Varma and Darshan. It had Saira Banu, Manoj Kumar, Dev Kumar, Bharat Bhushan, Manmohan, Poornima, Manmohan, Anwar Hussain, Randhir, Asit Sen, Polsan, Heeralal, Janki Das, Bhushan Tiwari, Devraj, Gulab Singh, Kirti Kumar, Ranveer Raj, Om Sahni, Mahesh Raj, and Bindu and others. This movie introduced Devyani.

Story of this movie was written by Balkrishna Mouj. Editing of this movie was done by Harish Pathare. Additional dialogues and final screenplay were written by Manoj Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.12.1971.

‘Balidaan-1971’ had six songs including one multiple version song. All songs for this movie were written by Verma Malik and composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

The details of the songs in this movie are as given below.

This particular post lacks depth and focus…you should discuss lyrics and music on songs posted. Some posts are superb but most others are poor. Example of good one is Jaan penchant ho of Gumnaam.

I have noted your observations, will try to include the same in my future articles.
