#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

(The movie – ‘Saaraansh-1984’, and tribute to Singer Bhupinder Singh)

Some movies touch you deeply, pull at your heart strings and get embedded permanently in your very being. It could be due the theme, the direction, or in the majority of the instances, the performances.

A few that have had such an effect on me are BOOT POLISH, MOTHER INDIA, SAHAB BIBI AUR GHULAM, DOST, KASTURI NIVASA (Kannada), MAUSAM, MOONRAM PIRAI (original Tamil version of Sadmaa), MASOOM, NAYAGAN, RUDAALI, BLACK.

The movie that is making its debut on the blog today is one such movie.

“SAARAANSH-1984” where a 29 year old NSD Graduate Anupam Kher debuted in the role of a 65 years old retired School Teacher, moved me to the very core. Kher’s acting and Mahesh Bhatt’s direction was superb in this movie.

Bhatt wrote the story, screenplay (with Sujit Sen), and dialogues written by Sujit Sen and Amit Khanna made the movie an emotional roller coaster ride. Able support was provided by Rohini Hattangadi, Neelu Phule, and Suhas Bhalekar.

Soni Razdan, Madan Jain, Akash Khurana, Alok Nath etc were in the cast.

Produced by Tarachand Barjatya of Rajshri Pictures the other credits of this movie are as;
Cinematography – Adeep Tandon, Editing-David Dhawan, Costumes-Amal Allana, Make up-S. Jayanta, Sound-Hitendra Ghosh, Art Direction – Madhukar Shinde.

The struggle of an old father coming into terms with the greatest loss of his life – the murdering of his only son in New York, his wife’s attempts at finding solace in the rituals and Pundits, standing up for a young woman whom they had taken as Paying Guest (against a local politician and his goons), contemplating suicide together earlier – the events unfold like a ‘tragic poem’ on the celluloid, but without losing hope for the final ‘ALL is WELL’.

Sanjeev Kumar, the thespian (with Sholay, Mausam, Zindagi, and Arjun Pandit, Trishul behind him) was the choice (in spite of Kher having been finalized by Mr. Bhatt) for the role by the Producers. But, Kher’s brilliant performance won him the ‘Filmfare Award’ for the Best Actor. Bhatt and Shinde also won for Story and Art Direction respectively.

The honor at the National Awards went to Naseeruddin Shah that year for ‘PAAR’. But Vasant Dev won the Best Lyricist award for ‘Saaraansh’.

This movie was India’s official entry for the Academy Award for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’. It was included in the Panorama section of the 1984-IFFI. At the 14th Moscow International Film Festival, it was nominated for the ‘Golden Prize’ and Bhatt was given a ‘special prize’.

(At the ‘Filmfare Awards’, the other nominations for the film were for Best Film, Director, Actress and supporting actress- almost all the major categories).

So far for Mahesh Bhatt his movies ‘Arth’, ‘Naam’, ‘Janam’, ‘Aashiqui’, ‘Sadak’, ‘Dil Hai Ke Maantaa Nahin’, ‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’, ‘Sir’, ‘Daddy’, ‘Zakhm’ etc have won him critical acclaim and many were commercially successful too. But to me ‘Saaransh’ is his most sensitive work same like Anupam Kher’s sensitive performance in this movie among his other movies.

Today’s song is a beautifully created and equally well picturised one. Kher, Hattangadi, Bhalekar and Alok Nath are the known faces here. Sung hauntingly by Bhupinder Singh, the lyrics are by Vasant Dev and music by Ajit Verman.

As mentioned earlier, Vasant Dev was given the ‘best lyricist award’ at the 32nd National Film Festivals.

Today is Bhupinder Singh’s birth anniversary (born on 6th February’1940). Surprisingly his voice features in two other favorite movies I have listed above.

This part was conceived on the 18th July’2022 the day Bhupinder Singh left for his heavenly journey and was informed to Avinash ji.

Lyrics noted are as per the audio of this song which is a longer version than the video, and provided by Avinash Scrapwala.

I am grateful to dear Avinash Scrapwala ji for his technical help. I feel lost with these things. He reminded me often, waited patiently and helped to make this post happen. (As mentioned above it was conceived on the day Bhupinder Singh left for his heavenly journey i.e. 18th July’2022, a gestation period of nearly nine months!!!)

Thanks also to all our ASAD friends who constantly goaded me to make a start.

Let us pay our tributes to Bhupinder Singh with this song.
