(A tribute to actor Om Puri- On his Remembrance Day)

Today 6th January 2022 is sixth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of one of the finest actors this country has produced. We are all aware of his talent and he has acted in several international films too.

He was born on 18th October 1950 in Ambala-Punjab.

He is none other than our beloved Om Puri. An actor without a face or rather a ‘cinematic face’ as he was ridiculed at the FTII Pune during his days there. I remember, there was an article about him in a Marathi magazine or Newspaper (I do not remember correctly) titled ‘bin chehryacha kalaawant’ (literally meaning ‘an actor without a face’) after ‘Ardhsatya’ had released.

I also remember that I had watched this movie after passing my matriculation exams that year in 1983. Later on I got to watch many of his movies on TV and also watched the show ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ where he appeared as an actor and was a commentator too.

I also remember his role in ‘Kakkaji Kahin’ – a TV serial- which I like very much. (I wish it should be ‘telecast’ again).

There is a long list of his movies I watched and wherein I like the characters he played. I am not going to mention the list and others details in today’s post here.

His struggles since his childhood days and later on how he reach to the National School of Drama and from there to the FTII Pune and how he reach to the mainstream cinema speaks a lot about his character and the person he was. From FTII Pune to mainstream Cinema and displaying his talent in acting is like a ‘dream story’.

He was famous for his ‘outspokenness’ and calling a spade ‘a spade’ and that many times landed him in controversies too. His personal life had also not gone well for him which hastened his ill health and that may have also been resulted an un-timely death of this ‘greatest actors’.
Missing him is like missing someone from your very near and dear ones.

It was shocking news for me the day he passed away or rather the next day of his death when the news broke in the next day morning to me. (I was at Anand that day. I and my wife had come from Nagpur to meet our daughters who were studying at Vidyanagar then.).

Today as a tribute to him I present a song from a lesser known or obscure movie ‘Chor Chor Chhup Jaa-1975’.
This is said to be the first film of Om Puri.

This movie was a ‘children’s movie’.

It was directed by B.V. Karanth for ‘Children’s Film Society of India’ and ‘Karanth Associates’

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.11.1975.

It had Om Puri (chor), Prasad Tagat (Madhav) and Bandar (Ramu), Dr. N. Ratna, Vishwanath Mirle, Ratna Vishwanath, Aster Anantmurty, Sheela Rao,

Mohan and Zareena are singers whose voices are used in the only song this movie has.

The idea of the story and scenario is by Dr. N. Ratna.

Editing of this movie was done by P. Bhaktavatsalam. The dialogues of this movie were written by Bansi Kaul who was also the Deputy Director of this movie.

Screenplay was written by B.V. Karanth and he also composed the music for this movie.

Here is a short note about what this movie is all about taken from ‘worldcat.org’ –B.V. Karanth page.

Madhav a mute kid has too many wonderful toys, but no friends to play with. He befriends Ramu, a monkey and his owner, a thief. This strange friendship has an unexpected affect. In trying to talk to the monkey, Madhav begins speaking haltingly, while Ramu’s thieving owner moved by the child’s innocence decides to give up stealing.
What happens next?

Luckily this movie is available on ‘Youtube’ and those interested can watch it there.

I am very much thankful to the up-loader of this movie.

I watched this movie and enjoyed it as I always have a liking for such type of movies.

As mentioned about today’s song is sung by Mohan and Zareena (HFGK mentions Rubeena) which on screen is lip synced by Om Puri (first part) and Prasad Tagat (second part).

This is a playful song which happens when the child, the ‘chor’ and the Bandar ‘ramu’ are playing ‘hide and seek’ game and the second part is when the ‘chor’ and his ‘bandar’ leave the kid at his home …

Let us enjoy today’s song and watch the young Om Puri in his first film (if the sources are correct).

Arre waah, what a coincidence!!!
I had thought that this song should come on Om Puri’s anniversary and here it is.
There are very few songs filmed on Om Puri & this one is from our childhood. I remember having seen it on television and recently again on youtube
