We have Ganpati Festival being celebrated all over. It brings back lot of memories for peoples like me. Especially the memories of the entertainment programs organized over the ten days of this festival. And secondly it’s the ‘prasada’ especially the ‘modaks’ 😊

Those were the years when I was growing. But the excitement and the thrill remain the same even today and savoring the varieties of modaks has only been more interesting and more joyful every year as it comes.

We were staying at Paras (District-Akola, Maharashtra) then. I was born in 1968 and we stayed there up to 1984. Thus, I spent my growing years to ‘mid-teens’ there in a colony for the employees of electricity board for the thermal power plant there.

Every year the Ganpati Festival would be celebrated for all, and it was called ‘Sarwajanik Ganesh Utsav’. A committee of selected members from the employees would be in charge for all the programs to be held during this festival.

The main attractions or the most awaited programs were screening of a movie, orchestras and plays. People were more interested in these as compared to other programs.

Normally the festival always started with ‘sthaapna’ and ‘bhajans’. The following days were spread over containing two orchestra programs, two plays, one movie, one mimicry show, one ‘katha-kathan (story telling)/pravachan/ or ‘one-act-plays.

One day would be specifically reserved for ‘cultural program’ wherein artists from the employees and their families used to perform their acts (song, dance, singing, folk song/dance etc. etc.).

And the last day would be ‘Shri Satyanarayan Katha and Prasad distribution’.

In this episode I am sharing the memories of the ‘naatak’ or ‘Marathi plays.

There were two (amateur) groups in our colony who normally staged Marathi plays.

My parents were part of one group. And both acted in many plays then. (Even I used to participate and act in plays for children then).

There must be many plays which I may have watched and took part in the rehearsals with my parents. I remember to accompany my parents in the rehearsals of the ‘plays’. During the process I would get the complete script embedded in my mind and many times I would help the participant if they forgot their dialogues.
(Later I was also promoted as a ‘prompter’ behind the ‘curtains’ as my voice was suitable for this activity then). (I think I have shared the same in one my posts or in the comments on the blog).

Some of the plays that I vividly remember are ‘taroon turk mhaataare ark’, ‘Rajkaaran gela chulit’, ‘raaygadaala jenvha jaag yete’, ‘thank you mr glad’, ‘ashroonchi jhaali phoole’, ‘sunbai ghar tujhach aahe’ etc.


In the ‘mode’ of the festival and the above memories playing in mind when I was browsing our blog couple of days back, I came across the movie ‘Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool’. To my surprise this movie so far had got only two songs posted on the blog and yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’.

The name of this movie reminded me the famous Marathi play ‘Ashroonchi Jhaali Phoole’ on which this movie was based. I am sure I must have watched the play first and the movie much later when it was on a TV channel.

I do not remember now but it is also possible that I may have watched this movie with elders in the family. Because as a grown-up boy when once I heard its’ song ‘jaane kaisa hai mera deewaana’, in my uncle’s collection of songs, I found it a little familiar to me.
After this I got this song it in my collection in 1999-2000 in an Asha Bhonsle-Kishore Kumar compilation. That time I was staying at Bareilly.

Well, the story of this movie ‘Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool-1969’ was written by eminent Marathi Playwright and writer Vasant Shankar Kanetkar. He was awarded the ‘Filmfare award for Best Story’ for this movie.

I had always had a great admiration for him ever since I had watched the play ‘Raaygadaaalaa Jenvha Jaag Yete’ and reading his writings in our school text books.

Vasant Kanetkar was born on 20th March’1922 at a small village Rahimatpur, in Satara District. He was second among the four siblings his parents have. His father Shankar Keshav Kanetkar was a famous Marathi poet, and he wrote by the pen name of ‘Girish’.
Vasant Kanetkar spent his earlier life in Pune, and he graduated from the Ferguson College Pune in Arts and later done his post-graduation (M.A.) from Sangli. During his higher studies he got the guidance from V.S. Khandekar and Kannada litterateur V.K. Gokak whose writings influenced him the most. He also had the influence of Shakespeare’s writings on him.

He joined the H.P.T. Arts college of Gokhale Education Society in Nashik and later went to become a professor and life member of this institute. He took on to writing short stories and novels during his services, and his first play ‘vedyanche ghar unhaat’ (Madman have his home in Sun/heat) came in 1957.
His play ‘raaygadaala jenvha jaag yete’ (When Raaygadaa awakens) brought him more fame and admiration and went on to become a milestone play in the history of Marathi Plays.

The Sangeet Naatak Academy awarded this play as the ‘Best Indian Play’ in 1964.

‘Ashroonchi Jhali Phoole’ was the next to bring him more fame and it was a commercially successful play too.
His ‘plays’ give a new life to Marathi theatre in terms of creativity and commercial success.
In his writing career of over fifty-four years, he penned down forty-two plays, four novels, many short stories along with writing for films, writing screen plays for TV etc etc.

He presided over the ‘Marathi Sahitya Sammelan in 1988’. He was felicitated with the ‘Maharashtra Gaurav Puraskar’ in 1990 and was honored with Padma Shri in 1992 for his accomplishments in writing. His writings have been translated into many languages.
He passed away on 30th January ‘2001.

I am reproducing here the plot of this play ‘Ashroonchi Jhaali Phooley’ (Tears have become Flowers) as given on the ‘wiki-page’ of this play.

The movie ‘Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool is based on this story.

The play depicts the turns in fortunes in the lives of the two main protagonists, Vidyanand, a professor of mathematics, and his young protégé Lalya.
Professor Vidyanand is a morally upright, brilliant professor of mathematics in a college in a town in Maharashtra. He comes across an intransigent student, Lalyaa, and succeeds in reforming him. Lalya graduates from college and enters the Indian Police Service as a cadet. Meanwhile, his college is taken over by a local politician, Dharmappa, who also has strong criminal links. Dharmappa wants to exploit the college for commercial gain. When Vidyanand resists, Dharmappa subverts Vidyanand’s own colleagues to implicate him falsely under embezzlement charges.

Vidyanand is removed from his position and is thrown in jail. In jail, he undergoes a transformation, and comes out as a hardened criminal, bent on enacting revenge against those who falsely implicated him. He teams up with his childhood friend turned con-man, Shambhu Mahadev, and puts in motion a plan to defraud the politician who has ruined his life.

In the meantime, Lalya, who is now a senior police officer, is assigned to apprehend Vidyanand. Lalya, oblivious to Vidyanand’s transformation, embarks on this mission. Eventually, Vidyanand achieves his revenge, but in the process finds he has lost his moral center and compromised the very values he has stood for. In the end, Vidyanand is apprehended by his protégé, but finds redemption in the fact that his life as a teacher caused his protégé Lalya to reform himself.

“Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool-1969” was directed by Satyen Bose for ‘Anoop Kumar Productions’. It was produced by S.M. Sagar and Anoop Kumar. It had Ashok Kumar, Deb Mukherjee, Alka, Nirupa Roy, Raj Mehra, Anoop Kumar, Rakesh, with Helen and Pran. They were supported by Kumud Tripathi, Manik Dutt, Kumari Uma, Mughni Abbasi, Shekhar Purohit, Janki Das, Tarun Ghosh, Bazid Khan, Radhey Shyam, Gautam Mukherjee, Pardesi, Uma Dutt, Madhup Sharma, Prakash Misra, Behari, M.A. Latif, Vinod Sharma, Lalit Kapoor, Genius, Ramlal, Amrit Rana, Nadir, Deepak, Aziz Siddiqui, and Habib.

As mentioned above story of this movie was written by Vasant S. Kanetkar.
Screenplay of this movie was written by Nabendu Ghosh, and dialogues were written by Govind Moonis.
Editing of this movie was done by Wamanrao (which I guess is Wamanrao Bhonsle of the duo Waman Bhonsle-Guru Dutt Shirali).

This movie had five songs in it. Lyrics for four songs were written by Taj Bhopali and Govind Moonis penned one song.

Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle lent their voices to songs of this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Following is the list of songs in this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Election mein maalik ke ladke khade hain Kishore Kumar, chorus

(* Note – Song number 03 mentioned above does not feature in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) in the list of songs of this movie. I have not come across any corrigendum or addendum regarding this. However, this song is very much there in the movie that is available online. I am not aware if this was added to the movie after its release?

So, the total number of songs of this movie are five and it needs to be corrected on the blog. This is also a song that does not find mention in HFGK.)

Today’s song is the third song of this movie to be posted on the blog. The earlier two songs of this movie posted on the blog were posted in the month of May’2009. That means the third song of this movie is coming after long gap of 4507 days (including 16.09.2021).

Today’s beautiful romantic song is sung by Kishore Kumar. We have Debu Mukherjee lip-syncing it on screen for Alka.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …



Song-Ye dil sadaa dhadkaa kiya (Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool)(1969) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Taj Bhopali, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

That is nice down-memory-lane post Avinashji
Thank you for giving the story of the movie. It reminded me of the 1993 Mithun Chakraborty movie “Phool Bane Angaar”. same storyline. must have been based on the story by Prof. Kantekar
Good melodious song too, looks like Kishore Kumar had a special sound for Deb Mukherjee- remember “tu auron ki hyun ho gayi”. “roop tera aisa darpan mein na samaaye” and “sawere ka suraj tumhaare liye hain”


it seems that Mashaal-1984 was inspired by the same story?


Yes, even Mashaal had same story. Should see if Chopras have mentioned it in their credits


V K Gokak ( Vinayaka ) was the 5th Jnanapeetha Award winning writer of Kannada, for his Epic BHARATHA SINDHU RASHMI, in 1990.

Spent his last days as a devotee of Sri Satya Sai Baba at Puttaparthi, AP.

Kannada, with 8 Awards, is the highest Jnanapeetha winning Indian language.
