Hullo Atuldom

‘Prem Rog’ (1982) was a film produced by Raj Kapoor’s RK Film’s and directed by Raj Kapoor himself. It had Rishi Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor from the Kapoor clan heading the cast with Padmini Kolhapure, Nanda, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raza Murad, Leela Mishra, Sushma Seth, Bindu, Om Prakash, Kiran Vairale featuring in prominent roles/characters. Vijendra Ghatge, Rajendranath, Tanuja, Asha Sachdev, Monty Nath, Dulari and Dina Pathak featured in either special or guest appearances.

The story was based on the issue of widow remarriage which I am sure is never a dated topic. There is a very poignant dialogue which Shammi Kapoor (as Bade Raja Thakur) says towards the end of the film which meant that “we (The Thakurs) lay down rules for the public to follow and move on in life but in reality we are ourselves bound by age-old customs.” (The original dialogue, as written by Jainendra Jain is “हम लोग दोहरी ज़िंदगी जीते हैं, दूसरों के लिए और, अपने लिए कुछ और। ये सब दिखावा है। मगर हमारे यहाँ विधवा की दूसरी शादी नहीं हुआ करती।”).  The story was written by Smt. Kamna Chandra. Pandit Narendra Sharma and Santosh Anand were the lyricists and Laxmikant Pyarelal were the music directors. Sudha Malhotra, Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar and Anwar were the playback singers used.

An interesting titbit on the film is that it was the first time that Shammi Kapoor acted in a RK Film, almost 30 years after Raj Kapoor established the banner. Although they had appeared together in ‘Char Dil Char Rahen’ in 1959 and also appeared in a guest appearance in a song of Manmohan Desai’s 1981 release ‘Naseeb’. Raj Kapoor had cast Shashi Kapoor in his ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (SSS) (1978) and a few of the earlier films of RK Banner.

‘SSS’ had Padmini Kolhapure play the childhood of Zeenat Aman and ‘Prem Rog’ (after four years since “SSS”) saw Padmini play one of her first adult roles. (Nasir Hussain’s ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’ also had Padmini play an adult role and that released before ‘Prem Rog’) Padmini went on to win the Filmfare award for Best Actress in that year.

We have four songs from film on the blog. Today we are revisiting the film on the occasion of Rishi Kapoor’s birth anniversary- he would have turned 70. He had some different types of roles post 2000 with films like ‘Raju Chacha’, ‘Kuchh Khatti Kuchh Meethi’, ‘Agneepath’ etc and he tasted a different success. The highlight of this period of his career was his on-screen reunion with Amitabh Bachchan in “102 Not Out” when both played old-aged father-son duo.

He was nominated in the Best Supporting actor and Best Actor in a Comic role for playing a 90-year-old grandfather whose heart-attack is instrumental in bringing his dysfunctional family together for a ‘final family photo’ which will be captioned “Kapoor & Sons, since 1921” (that was also the title of the movie). Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor won the Filmfare for this role. Other than this he was an National Award winner for ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970), Filmfare award winner for ‘Bobby’ (1973).

With today’s song we shall also wish (belatedly) Pyarelal Sharma of the Laxmi-Pyare duo on turning a year younger on 3rd September. He has given us so many lovely, melodious moments since the early 60s in the company of Laxmikant Kudalkar after having started as assistants to the big-names of Bollywood music. In all 174 songs composed by the duo appeared in the Finals of Binaca Geetmala. The stats page of the blog says they have composed 2900 songs, in about 635 films, of which the blog has 942 i.e. we are not even halfway in covering the songs composed by Laxmi-Pyare. The first film of the duo came in 1963 and the last film on which they worked together was in 1998. Pyarelal has been seen on Television in recent times as special judge on many musical shows. Wishing him good health.

Here is the song in the voice of Suresh Wadkar that comes at the start of the movie. It shows Rishi Kapoor dressed simply in a shirt devoid of the blazers, jerseys and mufflers that he was famous for. The song is written by Santosh Anand.

ho o o

are kuchh nahin een
kuchh nahin een
are kuchh nahin een
kuch nahin een
phir kuchh nahin hai bhaata
jab rog ye lag jaata
main hoon prem rogi
haan main hoon prem rogi meri dawa to karaao
main hoon prem rogi meri dawa to karaao
jaao jaao jaao kisi vaid ko bulaao
main hoon prem rogi
phir kuchh nahin hai bhaata
jab rog ye lag jaata
main hoon prem rogi meri dawa to karaao
main hoon prem rogi

kuchh samjha aur kuchh samajh na paaya
kuchh samjha aur kuchh samajh na paaya
dil waale ka dil bhar aaya
aur kabhi socha jaayega
kya kuchh khoya
kya kuchh paaya
ja tan laage vo tan jaane
ja tan laage vo tan jaane
aisi hai is rog ki maaya
meri is halaat ko
haan meri is haalat ko najar na lagaao
meri is haalat ko nazar na lagaao
o jaao jaao kisi vaid ko bulaao
main hoon prem rogi

ho o
ho o o

ho ho ho
ho ho ho
ho ho ho ho ho ho

ho ho ho
ho ho ho
ho ho ho ho ho ho

aa aa aa aa aa
(ho ho ho)
aa aa aa aa aa
(ho ho ho)
aa aa aa aa aa
(ho ho ho ho ho ho)
aa aa aa aa aa

 

ho o o
ho o o
ho o o
ho o o
soch raha hoon jag kya hota
soch raha hoon jag kya hota
ismein agar ye pyaar na hota
mausam ka ehsaas na hota
gul gulshan gulzaar na hota
hone ko kuchh bhi hota par
hone ko kuchh bhi hota par
ye sundar sansaar na hota
mere in khayaalon mein
mere in khayaalon mein tum bhi doob jaao
mere in khayalon mein tum bhi doob jaao
jaao jaao jaao kisi vaid ko bulaao
main hoon prem rogi

yaaro hai wo kismat waala
prem rog jise lag jaata hai
sukh-dukh ka usey hosh nahin hai
apni lau main ram jaata hai
har pal khud hi khud hansta hai
har pal khud hi khud rota hai
ye rog laa-ilaaj sahi
phir bhi kuchh karaao
o jaao jaao jaao
are jaao jaao jaao
mere vaid ko bulaao
mera ilaaj karaao
aur nahin koi toh mere yaar ko bulaao
o jaao jaao jaao mere dildaar ko bulaao
o jaao jaao jaao mere yaar ko bulaao
main hu prem rogi

aa aa aa aa

हो ओ ओ

अरे कुछ नहीं
कुछ नहीं
अरे कुछ नहीं
कुछ नहीं
फिर कुछ नहीं है भाता
जब रोग ये लग जाता
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी
हाँ’ मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी मेरी दवा तो कराओ
जाओ जाओ जाओ किसी वैद को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी
फिर कुछ नहीं है भाता
जब रोग ये लग जाता
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी मेरी दवा तो कराओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

कुछ समझा और कुछ समझ ना पाया
कुछ समझा और कुछ समझ ना पाया
दिल वाले का दिल भर आया
और कभी सोचा जाएगा
क्या कुछ खोया
क्या कुछ पाया
जा तन लागे वो तन जाने
जा तन लागे वो तन जाने
ऐसी है इस रोग की माया
मेरी इस हालत को
हाँ मेरी इस हालत को को नज़र ना लगाओ
मेरी इस हालत को को नज़र ना लगाओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ किसी वैद को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

हो ओ
हो ओ ओ

हो हो हो
हो हो हो
हो हो हो हो हो हो
हो हो हो
हो हो हो
हो हो हो हो हो हो
आ आ आ आ आ
(हो हो हो)
आ आ आ आ आ
(हो हो हो)
आ आ आ आ आ
(हो हो हो हो हो हो)
आ आ आ आ आ

हो ओ ओ
हो ओ ओ
हो ओ ओ
हो ओ ओ
सोच रहा हूँ जग क्या होता
सोच रहा हूँ जग क्या होता
इस में अगर ये प्यार न होता
मौसम का एहसास ना होता
गुल गुलशन गुलज़ार ना होता
होने को कुछ भी होता पर
होने को कुछ भी होता पर
ये सुंदर संसार ना होता
मेरे इन ख़यालों में
मेरे इन ख़यालों में तुम भी डूब जाओ
मेरे इन ख़यालों में तुम भी डूब जाओ
जाओ जाओ जाओ किसी वैद को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

यारो है वो किस्मत वाला
प्रेम रोग जिसे लग जाता है
सुख दुख का उसे होश नहीं है
अपनी लौ में राम जाता है
हर पल खुद ही खुद हँसता है
हर पल खुद ही खुद रोता है
ये रोग ला-इलाज सही
फिर भी कुछ कराओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ
अरे जाओ जाओ जाओ
मेरे वैद को बुलाओ
मेरा इलाज कराओ
और नहीं कोई तो मेरे यार को बुलाओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ मेरे दिलदार को बुलाओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ मेरे यार को बुलाओ
मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी’

आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ
