#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Samaadhi-1972)
—————————————

Welcome all to this second post of mine on ‘background songs’ in Hindi movies.

Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Samaadhi’.

“Samaadhi-1972” was directed by Prakash Mehra for ‘Sangam Arts International’. It was produced by Bhagwant Singh and G.L. Khanna.

It had Asha Parekh, Dharmendra, Jaya Bhaduri (special appearance), Madan Puri, Abhi Bhattacharya, Raj Mehra, Sundar, Randhir, Ram Mohan, Shetty, Leela Mishra, Tun Tun, B.B. Bhalla, Bhushan Tiwari, C.S. Dubey, Sadhana Khote, Keshav Rana, Dulari, R.P. Sethi, Sadhu Singh, Master Satyajeet, Master Raju, Master Rajeev, and others.

Story, screenplay and dialgoues of this movie were written by Pandit Mukhram Sharma.
Editing of this movie was done by Lachhmandas.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.12.1972.

Majrooh Sultanpuri was the lyricist for this film and had written all the six songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs in this movie and their status on the blog.

Sr.no Song Title Singer/s Posted on
01 Kaanta laga haay laga Lata Mangeshkar 10.12.2008
02 Jab tak rahe tan mein jiya Asha Bhonsle 13.10.2008
03 Ye khel hain taqdeer ke Manna Dey
04 Jaane jaana jaao kal phir aana Kishore Kumar
05 Maine dekha ek sapnaa Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar 24.05.2014
06 O yaara yaara Asha Bhonsle

From the above table we can see that only three songs from this movie have so far been posted on the blog. The movie had its first song posted on the blog on 13.10.2008. So, it is long time now that this movie has still not been Yippeeee’ed on the blog.

(The sixth song mentioned in the above list is said to be deleted from the movie after its release. Only the audio of this song is available now.)

(None of the songs from this movie make it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ of ‘1972’. Though, ‘kaanta laga’ appears in the list of next rung of 23 songs at number 19.)

As mentioned above today’s song is a background song which is sung by Manna Dey. He has also sung many of this type of songs and in fact the next three-four posts under this series could all have songs sung by Manna Dey only. He was another perfect choice for such type of songs.

Today’s song is played in four parts in the movie as the movie progresses. The central character in today’s song is Lakhan the dacoit in this movie who is played by Dharmendra on screen. I watched this movie online last Sunday and I must say that this movie is one of the very nice movies of those years.

Lakhan Singh is a dacoit and usually he and his gang of dacoits is raiding various villages to loot the money and jewelry from the villagers. During one such raid he kidnaps Champa (Asha Parekh) and tries to molest her, but when she tries to fight back he falls in love with her. Champa is an orphan living with her Uncle and Aunt who are happy after her kidnapping. Lakhan took backs Champa to her home where Champa sees her Uncle and Aunt celebrating. She decides to live with Lakhan and both of them get married in a temple. Lakhan Singh leaves the ‘dacoit gang’, and the ‘boore kaams’, to live a happy life of a good citizen. However, Champa is diagnosed with Cancer. Her treatment could not be done in absence of money. Devastated by Champa’s death Lakhan returns back to his ‘dacoit avtaar’ and wants to take revenge of the ‘money lender’ who refuses him to give money for Champa’s treatment. However the money lender’s (Randhir) wife begs for his life and Lakhan forgives him. But the money lender informs Police about Lakhan.

Police comes to the village to arrest Lakhan but he escapes away with his child on his back. He returns back to his ‘dacoit companions’ who happily welcome him and his son back.

From here there are lot of twists and turns in this movie and the today’s song is played which comments on the destiny of Lakhan, and the helplessness and the ‘deeds’ of Lakhan Singh himself.

The first part of this song gets played when Lakhan Singh runs away from the police and returns to his ‘camp’.

The second part of the song is played when Lakhan Singh handovers his own son to Abhi Bhattacharya whose son accidentally gets killed falling from hill when Lakhan Singh kidnaps him for a ransom. Lakhan Singh gives his son to Seth Manoharlal (Abhi Bhattacharya) telling him that he is the one whom he kidnapped eight years back.

Eight years back Lakhan Singh kidnaps Seth Manoharlal’s son for money and hide in a temple atop a hill (in Rajasthan). When Seth Manoharlal reaches the temple with the money Lakhan Singh is coming down carrying the child and his legs stumble upon a stone on the slope and the child falls down from his hands and dies. Lakhan is shocked but keep hiding until Seth Manoharlal returns back after lot of pain and wiping for his son. (This scene is a very long scene in the movie and it captures the emotions of both very well. I like it very much).

Manoharlal raises Lakhan Singh’s son thinking of his own son who after growing up is played by Dharmendra again.
The third part of the song is played when his own son Ajay (grown up now-Dharmendra in double role) slaps Lakhan Singh for stealing the gun from his house.
The gun was actually taken by Seth Manoharlal’s nephew who wants to harm his own father (played by actor Sundar). Grief stricken Lakhan Singh leaves Seth Manoharlal’s house and this part gets played in the background.
By this time Seth Manoharlal gets to know that Ajay is in fact the son of Lakhan Singh only.

The fourth part of this song takes place in the end of the movie when Lakhan Singh sacrifices his life saving Seth Manoharlal and his family members at Ajay’s marriage function.

Jaggu (played by Madan Puri) who is Lakhan Singh’s accomplice tries to blackmail him for his sons reality and finally tries to loot them on the marriage function where the fights takes place and in the end Lakhan Singh saves all but lost his life saving Seth Manoharlal. Jaggu gets killed by Ajay.

(That is the background for the four parts of this background song. The part mentioned as part 2 is actually part-3 and I have numbered the part as they appear in the movie chronologically) 🙂

Enjoy this wonderful song sung by Manna Dey and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Musical magic is by Pancham.
