I first met him on screen in 1971. The film was ‘Mere Apne’, a story of a destitute old lady fallen on to hard times, intersecting with gang wars between young street smarts. I had heard his name before. In 1968, when Sunil Dutt launched his younger brother Som Dutt via his home production ‘Man Ka Meet’, one also read in the news that another new face was being introduced – name Vinod Khanna.

Remembering Vinod Khanna on his birth anniversary today. He would have been celebrating his 76th year on this planet. He passed away five years ago, on 27th April, after losing a battle with the dreaded cancer.

As the decade of 1960s came to a close, the latter half introduced a few handsome young men to the the Hindi screen, that would go on to make big name for themselves over next few decades – Rishi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Amitabh Bachchan – and yes, Vinod Khanna.

I was verily impressed by his screen presence in ‘Mere Apne’. An attractive physique, a stoic and solemn demeanor that is not easily ruffled, a determined and earnest quietness, an un-agitated dialogue delivery that conveys a commanding confidence. His screen presence felt good and comfortable.

As the decade would progress, there would be more impressive performances that added to his stature as an accomplished actor in Hindi cinema. Starting with the villain’s role in ‘Man Ka Meet’, he went on to doing side roles or shared leads in films like ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, ‘Mastaana’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ and ‘Sachcha Jhootha’ (all 1970) and ‘Reshma Aur Shera’ (1971), he moved into the lead role with the film ‘Hum, Tum Aur Who’ (1971) opposite Bharati. That year also witnessed two more of his great perfromances – ‘Mere Apne’ by Gulzar and ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ by Raj Khosla. In the former he share the lead with Shatrughan Sinha, and in the latter with an established Dharmendra. And he stood his ground well in both these outings.

In 1972, we see him as the best friend of the hero in Gulzar’s ‘Parichay’. All this while, his presence in films is growing rapidly. In 1973 he plays the role of an army officer inadvertently caught in an illicit love triangle in ‘Achanak’, a film by Gulzar and KA Abbas. This role earned him a lot of critical acclaim.

In 1974, another very impressive performance in ‘Imtihan’ and also in ‘Haath Ki Safai’. For the latter performance, he got the Filmfare’s Best Supporting Actor award for the year. From 1976 I remember his roles in ‘Shaque’ and ‘Hera Pheri’. Moving on to bigger and better in 1977, we see him in ‘Parvarish’, the outstanding cops and robbers story ‘Inkaar’ and the blockbuster hit ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.

1978 turned out to be yet another big year for him with films like ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’ and ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’. 1979 saw him play the role of Rana ji in Gulzar’s ‘Meera’. And in 1980 he made it big with films like ‘Qurbani’ and ‘The Burning Train’. From 1981 I remember him in ‘Kudrat’, a film by Chetan Anand.

Although Vinod Khanna went on to a brilliant career, the above listed films are the ones that are in my mind as mine, my selection – I have watched them on the big screen.

In 1982, Vinod took a break in his career, to be with Acharya Rajneesh, his spiritual Guru. That break ended in 1986, as he returned to India, after Acharya Rajneesh was made to leave the US by the authorities. Coming back, Vinod rejoined the industry and continued with his career. We see him active in the industry all the way up to 2015. Later, the medical issues overtook his life and he passed away in 2017. His last role was in a film released posthumously in 2020 – ‘Guns Of Banaras’.

The song I present today is from the 1974 film ‘The Cheat’ aka ‘Farebi’. The film is from Jaimini Dewan Productions. (Readers will recall that Jaimini Dewan was the elder brother of actor Karan Dewan). It is directed by Sudesh Issar. The cast of the film is listed as Vinod Khanna, Maushumi Chatterjee, Nirupa Rai, Anwar Hussain, Fariyal, Ranjeet, Randhir, Uma Dutt, Jankidas, Dubey, Naidu, Nishan Singh, Haroon Khan, Madhu Chauhan, Shah Agha, Soni, Ratan Gaurang, Jawahar Chopra, Sunil Sharma, Sat Prakash, and Bindu.

The film has six songs, all have been penned by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The singing voice is that of Kishore Kumar. With this song, the film ‘The Cheat’ makes its debut on our blog.

The lyrics of this song have been provided by dear Prakash ji.

ae mere dil

ae mere dil

ye dil fareb din nasheen
ye moorten haseen haaen
ye dil fareb din nasheen
ye moorten haseen haaen
ye roop ki numaaishen
ye shokh shokh naazneen
thaam loon baahon ko
main rokun teri raahon ko
dil na mila na sahi
mila gaeen nigaahon ko
mila gaeen nigaahon ko
ae mere dil
la la la la
khushi se machal
la la la la
ae mere dil

bhara bhara ye jaam hai
ye mehki mehki shaam hai
bhara bhara ye jaam hai
ye mehki mehki shaam hai
ae dil mere bharam na kar
ye sab tumhaare naam hai
ye mere dil ki pyaas hai
ye zindagi ki aas hai
aaj tum se door jo
wo kal tumhare paas hai
wo kal tumhare paas hai
ae mere dil
la la la la
khushi se machal
la la la la
poori karunga main teri tamanna
aaj mere kadmon me duniya
ae mere dil
la la la la
khushi se machal
la la la la
ae mere dil

ए मेरे दिल
ला ला ला ला
खुशी से मचल
ला ला ला ला
ए मेरे दिल
ला ला ला ला
खुशी से मचल
ला ला ला ला
पूरी करूंगा मैं तेरी तमन्ना
आज मेरे कदमों में दुनिया
ए मेरे दिल
ला ला ला ला
खुशी से मचल
ला ला ला ला
ए मेरे दिल

ये दिल फरेब दिलनशीं
ये मूरतें हसीं हसीं
ये दिल फरेब दिलनशीं
ये मूरतें हसीं हसीं
ये रूप की नुमाइशें
ये शोख शोख नाज़नीन
थाम लूँ बाहों को
मैं रोकूँ तेरी राहों को
दिल ना मिला ना सही
मिला गईं निगाहों को
मिला गईं निगाहों को
ए मेरे दिल
ला ला ला ला
खुशी से मचल
ला ला ला ला
ए मेरे दिल

भरा भरा ये जाम है
ये महको महकी महकी शाम है
भरा भरा ये जाम है
ये महको महकी महकी शाम है
ए मेरे दिल भरम ना कर
ये सब तुम्हारे नाम है
ये मेरे दिल की प्यास है
या ज़िंदगी की आस है
आज तुमसे दूर जो
वो कल तुम्हारे पास है
वो कल तुम्हारे पास है
ए मेरे दिल
ला ला ला ला
खुशी से मचल
ला ला ला ला
पूरी करूंगा मैं तेरी तमन्ना
आज मेरे कदमों में दुनिया
ए मेरे दिल
ला ला ला ला
खुशी से मचल
ला ला ला ला
ए मेरे दिल

Thank you Sudhirji for this post thinking of The oh! So Handsome Vinod Khanna.
His dimpled chin and charming smile was at par with the crinky eyes of the Rajesh Khanna that girls fell for. And VK pulled off Grey characters with such ease. “Itna sundar aadmi toh kabhi burn nahin ho sakta hai” was the thought I have when I see movies where VK was negative
