Hello Atuldom

“Awaam” (1987) was produced by B.R. Chopra and Ravi Chopra. It was directed by B.R. Chopra and had dialogues by Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza.
It had Ashok Kumar, Shafi Inamdar, Iftikhar, Om Shivpuri and Shreeram Lagoo playing friends, and past freedom-fighters who are living on benefits that freedom-fighters used to get. Additionally, Shafi Inamdar, Om Shivpuri and Shreeram Lagoo are politicians in post-independence India and Shafi Inamdar’s character is shown to be hand-in-glove with anti-national (Gaddaar) elements and Om Shivpuri being happy reaping benefits of the Gaddaars.

Rajesh Khanna played the son of the straight-forward Iftikhar and is shown to worship Ashok Kumar. Then there are Deepak Parashar and Raj Babbar who are Rajesh Khanna’s friends. Poonam Dhillon & Smita Patil are the female characters who are slightly more than glamour dolls. There is Nana Patekar who plays an Army officer who has engaged Rajesh Khanna (an infantry man) to look into the activities of the corrupt people. Oh, I forgot to mention Maneesha kohli (character actor Dev Kumar’s daughter) played a negative character with some good dance numbers featuring her. Plus Vijay Arora, Chandrashekhar, Saeed Jaffery, Satish Shah, Rita Rani Kaul, Ashalata and Sushma Seth form the supporting cast. (As we can see it was a multi, multi-starrer).

So that is the story of the movie in short. But the movie itself was 2 & 1/2 hours long with a few people being eliminated every time the cover of the Gaddaars is blown. I know also this because my favourite D2H channel is having a festival of BR Chopra films this week- to remember the producer-director on his birth anniversary which is on 22nd April; he would have been 108. They have aired Ittefaq, Agni Pariksha, Karm, Awam and Afsana is scheduled for tomorrow. Some really ‘Hatke’ movies have been selected, and not the oft-repeated Naya Daur, Baghban, The Burning Train etc. And since it is a BR Chopra film festival I am sure that the channel must have been spoilt with a large library to choose from.

I discovered a few interesting tit-bits as I sat to write this post.

1) this was B R Chopra’s final film as director. Then he made Mahabharat the television series.
2) for about 36 years Ashok Kumar and B R Chopra worked together starting with Chopra’s first film Afsana in 1951.
3) Iftikhar was a permanent in Chopra’s films for 30 years and this was the last time they worked together.
4) Rajesh Khanna acted in a BR Chopra film after 10 years in ‘Awam’; Karm was in 1977.
5) from ‘Gumrah’ to ‘Awam’ Ravi gave music for BR Chopra films for 25 years. This was their last together.
6) This was Smita Patil’s last movie. She had completed shooting her scenes and dubbing was left. Rekha dubbed for Smita’s character.

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor & Asha Bhonsle and Rajesh Khanna & Poonam lip-sync. Hasan Kamal was the lyricist.

With this post we can also wish the beautiful Poonam on turning 60 a few days back. April 18th was her birthday. It is hard to imagine that she is 60. All the best to her for great times ahead.

Thanks for the post. I never heard of / or am aware of, film ‘Awam’ .
Of course I did like many of BR Chopra movies starting from ‘Ek Hi Rasta’
It was good to go thru some of the facts presented by you, about BR films and their long association with various artistes and people. We could also recall Mahendra Kapoor’s association with BR films

Yes Mahendra kapoor, Ravi were always in BR Films music department.
And all of his films had good music.
Plus BR Films had two no music films- Ittefaq and Kanoon

I remember reading news article about Madhavi(Southern heroine who acted opposite Amitabh in Gereftar,Andha Kanoon, Agnipath) was going to play the lady spy`s role, then one fine day Dev Kumar`s daughter( who acted opposite Manoj Kumar`s son in Do Gulaab) played that role….I guess there is one more Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhosle duet picturised as rain song on Smita Patil and Raj Babbar,…..I have even sent the lyrics of that song log long long back, which was not used…..in the blog………,There is one more patriotic song in this movie I guess…….

That rain song looked good. It ends as a party song with Maneesha lip-syncing the final stanza.
Even I read that Madhavi was supposed to do this movie.
Also I read that BR Chopra had approached Rajesh Khanna for Aaj Ki Awaaz too, but because of pre-commitments Rajesh Khanna opted out.
Then I read that Chopra had planned Baghban with Dilip Kumar which didn’t happen; it happened much later when Ravi Chopra directed Amitabh Bachchan
