Hullo Atuldom

“Five Rifles” (1974) was produced and directed by I.S. Johar. I think it was also written by I.S.Johar. Anyone who used to see the movies in the 70s will recall that the male actors – won’t call them protagonist or heroes- were look-alikes of Shashi Kapoor and Rajesh Khanna; credited in the movie’s titles as Shahi Kapoor and Rakesh Khanna. The others in the cast were Ambika Johar (in a double role), Veena, D.K. Sapru, Murad, Kamal Kapoor (in one of his many videshi, police commissioner acts), Anil Johar, Satyadeep etc. and I.S. Johar, of course. The songs of the movie were written by Rajinder Krishan and Indeevar. The movie had five songs and the blog has the following two of them:-

Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi 30 june 2009
Tera husn allah allah tera roop raam raam 6 June 2018

Avinashji has written a lot of details, about the film, in this post

I don’t recall if I had seen this movie at the time of its release (maybe I had) but saw the movie recently and felt that it spoke about too many things. I.S. Johar had ‘Nashabandi’ (prohibition on sale of liquor), ‘Nasbandi’ (family planning movement of the 70s), freedom-struggle, corrupt ‘Senapati’ of some unnamed kingdom who helps the foreign ruler dethrone the Maharaja etc. all in the story of this movie. Additionally, there was an extended climax which went from the plains to the snow-capped hills in North India with snowmobiles etc. Plus all the gorillas/apes that kept popping here-there-everywhere through the movie. And weird cars which split from the middle, suddenly become flying cars, and amphibians. Just too many things in one movie for the audience to digest; in addition to the two look-alikes and a non-acting heroine. God, I sat through it to see what the song-and-dance was all about. Oh I forgot, a song from “Johar Mehmood in Goa” (1965) was used in the scene where the Apes helping the freedom-fighters are being escorted to Jail.

Today we are having a song where we see Inder Sen Johar (read somewhere that he was Inderjeet Singh Johar, whichever is correct) disguised as a dancer out to hoodwink the ‘Daaroga’ and breaking into a mujra singing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. There is another girl dancing in a black dress outwitting the hawaldars who have accompanied the Daaroga.

I.S. Johar, born on 16th february 1920, was an M.A. in Economics & Politics and before completing LLB. He was born in modern day Pakistan, got stuck in Patiala at the time of partition and could never return. He made his debut in Bollywood in 1949 and also appeared in a few international projects. He was seen in comic roles with tongue-in-cheek dialogues and did serious roles too with subtle ironic or frankly sarcastic jibes at Indian customs, mores, superstitions and institutions. It is 38 years since his passing and 10th March is his anniversary.


Song-Malmal mein badan mora chamke (Five Rifles)(1974) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aa aa aa aa aa aa aa
malmal mein badan mora chamke
jobanwa damke
sajanwa kaise chhupaoon haaye haaye
malmal mein badan mora chamke
jobanwa damke
sajanwa kaise chhupaoon haaye haaye
kaise chhupaoon gori baahein
ye tirchhi nigaahein
jawaani ki adaayein
malmal mein
malmal mein badan mora chamke
jobanwa damke
sajanwa kaise chhupaoon haaye haaye

resham ki maine choli mangaai
resham ki maine choli mangaai
do pal tann par bhi tikne na paayi
ho toot gayi dori jo
li angdaayi
toot gayi dori jo
li angdaayi
huyi aisi halchal
huyi aisi halchal
mangani padi malmal
malmal mein
malmal mein badan mora chamke
jobanwa damke
sajanwa kaise chhupaoon haaye haaye

hoke jawaan maine bada dukh paaya
hoke jawaan maine bada dukh paaya
dekhe buri aankh se apna paraaya
kaahe ye jawaani aayi
kaahe ye shabaab aaya
kaahe ye jawaani aayi
kaahe ye shabaab aaya
huyi aisi halchal
huyi aisi halchal
mangaani padi malmal haay
malmal mein
ho malmal mein badan mora chamke
jobanwa damke
sajanwa kaise chhupaaoon haaye haaye
kaise chupaoon gori baahein
ye tirchhi nigaahein
jawaani ki adaayein
malmal mein
malmal mein badan mora chamke
jobanwa damke
sajanwa kaise chhupaoon haaye haaye

The movie name ‘Five Rifles’ bring back memories – first and foremost – of the qawwali – jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi which was played everywhere those days. I do not remember the movie completely but the act of monkeys is what has been embedded on my mind since my childhood.
Watching I.S. Johar on screen has always been enjoyable. I like his roles.
Thanks for remembering him on his anniversary and introducing us this song from this movie.
Regards,
