Hullo Atuldom

“Sadma” (1983) was produced by Raj N. Sippy & Romu N. Sippy, directed by Balu Mahendra and had lyrics & dialogues by Gulzar. Ilaiyaraaja was the music director who used Suresh Wadkar, Yesudas, Asha Bhonsle, Sridevi and Kamal Haasan as playback singers. The following songs of the movie are present on the blog.

6964 Surmayee ankhiyon mein nanha munna ek sapna de ja re Multiple version song Yesudas 7 November 2012
17218 Ye hawa ye fizaa Asha Bhonslr 7 november 2022

“Sadma” had a cast of Sridevi, Silk Smitha, Leela Mishra, Ashalata Wabgaonkar, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Arvind Deshpande, Paintal, Gulshan Grover, Somayajulu and Kamal Haasan. The film was a remake of the Tamil film “Moondram Pirai” (1982) which also had Kamal and Sridevi.

A small trivia about this movie is that (future maestro) A R Rehman had worked as a keyboard player for this film.

Another trivia is that this was the debut -in Hindi- for Iliaraaja, Balu Mahendra and Silk Smitha. It was the only film where Kamal Haasan and Sridevi acted together in Hindi even though they were a popular pair in South Indian Cinema.

It was the story of the relationship shared by a guileless lonely school teacher and a young woman who has regressed to her childhood due to an accident that has caused retrograde amnesia. The school teacher rescues the girl from a brothel and takes her with him to Ooty, where he takes good care of her and eventually manages to treat her back to normalcy with the help of his friendly neighbour and a local medicine man. But the outcome of this treatment is that the girl goes back to her parents and forgets the school teacher who had looked after her in the interim period.

The melodious lullaby from this movie surmayee-ankhiyon-mein-nanha-munna-ek-sapna-de-ja-re was posted on the blog on this dated in 2012. A mail from Prakashchandraji drew my attention to it, so this movie is in the running for Blog-Ten-Year-Challenge 2012-2022. The following were the songs that were posted on the blog on this-date-that-year. Here are the posts of 7th November 2012 and their yyiippeeee status.

6964 Surmayee ankhiyon mein nanha munna ek sapna de ja re Sadmaa (1983) 5 songs covered out of 6 by now

Here is the next song from “Sadma”- it is in the voices of Kamal Haasan and Sridevi. It is story sung as a song by Kamal Haasan’s character to entertain the child in the young lady. Sridevi is extremely cute in this and so is Kamal Haasan. The song was one that was by heart for me back then, subsequently (post marriage i.e.) I heard and learnt the Tamil song too in the equivalent situation; that song was also sung by Sridevi and Kamal Haasan. I found that Gulzarsaab has written the Hindi lyrics giving the same meaning as the Tamil original.

Incidentally, Kamal Haasan turns a year older on 7th November. Here is wishing this actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, playback singer, television presenter and politician a Very Happy Birthday. His last movie released this year on 3rd June and it was his 232nd release. May he continue to entertain us.

Editor’s note:-Today, two different songs rom “Sadmaa”(1983) get covered as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge. with this, all the six songs of “Sadmaa”(1983) get covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.
