#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Yippeeee to Khote Sikkey-1974)

Few months back when I was travelling to my work place I got to listen to a program on a famous Radio FM channel. In This program, the anchor talks about the some special ‘characters’ from movies and the actors performing these characters, and the impact such characters have on the audience. That day this program talked about two special characters i.e. ‘Mogambo’ of ‘Mr. India-1987’ and ‘Jaykant Shikre’ of ‘Singham-2011’.

The anchor specially mentioned about the ‘expression of the eyes’ and how ‘expressive’ the ‘eyes’ of both the actors Amrish Puri and Prakash Raj give their respective roles a different dimension at different situations in the movie.

While listening to this program I wished that the anchor also mentioned about the actors who have such ‘expressive or especially the ‘eyes’ that ‘speak a lot’ and or actors who have such ‘killer eyes’. Though there was no mention of any other actor or actresses (for that matter I think that all actresses ‘just kill’ with their eyes 🙂 ), I was surprised when he didn’t mention even Pran Saab particularly when the discussion was about ‘villainous roles’.

I remembered how scared I would be whenever Pran appeared on screen in the movie ‘Kab? Kyun? Aur Kahaan-1970’. I remember I watched this movie with my Uncle at Akola when I was still a child. I used to hold the hand of my Uncle whenever Pran appears on screen in this movie. The other movie of Pran Saab where I was scared of him a lot was ‘Ram Aur Shyaam-1967’, and many of his black & white movies which I get to watched in those days. And when I mentioned this I meant of the ‘dreaded stare’ of Pran Saab. His eyes really scared me a lot then.

That reminds me the other villain Ajit whose performances in the movie ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat-1973’, ‘Zanjeer-1973’ and ‘Khote Sikkey-1974’ scared me a lot then. I was around 5-6 years in 1973-1974 when I must have watched these movies, mostly with my brothers and one of my Uncles. The ‘zanjeer-horse’ in the movie ‘Zanjeer’ also gave me some dreaded nightmares like it does for the ‘hero’ in the movie Amitabh Bachchan.
Couple of years later it was again Ajit in ‘Baarood-1976’ where he kills Dr. Shreeram Lagoo which give me lot of shivering then. I think it is Ajit’s ‘big-eyes’ that had a great impact and his eyes too ‘speak a lot’ which he did not want to speak on screen  and conveying a lot to his ‘gang-members’.

Likewise I think Prem Chopra’s eyes perfectly gives a ‘lecherous’ look whenever his character is shown full of lust.

I will not be listing all the actors or actresses who have such ‘special eyes’ which ‘speaks a lot’ or which ‘expresses a lot’. Every individual will surely have his take and opinions on this. But I would definitely mention about the special eyes of Rajesh Khanna. He can express lot of emotions through his eyes.

And, if readers permit me to go a little wild in my thoughts, I would like to mention what crossed my mind then when I was thinking of this write-up. Around the same time our dear Mahesh ji had forwarded the list of winners of ‘Filmfare Awards-2021’. It had a photo of actor Ranveer Singh – the winner of Best Actor award for ‘83’ – with a Red-cricket ball in front on him in the air. If you watch the eyes of Ranveer Singh, I think, they equally express the emotions of the cricketer Kapil Dev whose photos and visuals of those days, which now we get watch more and think on them. I think Kapil Dev’s eyes can be mentioned as ‘dreamy eyes with killer instinct’. And in the role as Kapil Dev, Ranveer Singh had given his best performance with the same emotions I feel. His had changed a lot for this role and acquired those mannerisms of Kapil Dev which made the movie a delight to watch.

And, now we come back to the ‘special eyes’ which according to me are most ‘thinking eyes’ or ‘eyes surrounded with mystery’  on screen i.e. the eyes of the actor of today’s movie – Feroz Khan. I had in my one of the earlier write ups mentioned about Feroz Khan ‘riding on the horse wearing his ‘cow-boy’ hat and ‘staring’ while riding on the horse.. That is something very special for me from the movies of ‘seventies’…

I think the actors performing negative roles or villainous roles have express a lot through their eyes as well as their dialogues and yelling.
Thus we can find such effective eyes of actors like Danny Denzongpa, Ranjeet and Sudhir (in this movie and their other movies too).

From my discussion on eyes, One may wonder if today is ‘world sight day’ today. IThat is not the case, but oday’s song is something that is talking of ‘eyes that kills’ 🙂

Let us come back to the movie whose song is being covered in this article …

Song-Oye maar sutteya (Khote Sikkey)(1974) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman


oye maar sutteya

oye balle balle nainaa yaar ke
oye maar sutteya aa

hoye balle balle nainaa yaar ke

jaise chalke kataar
ho rahe dil ke paar
oye re ae
oye maar sutteya aa
maar sutteya
ho balle balle nainaa yaar ke
yaar ke ae

aap jo teri deewaani
kaahe usko maare jaani
arey baand tere paayal
ho ke phire ghaayal
chhod tohe jaaungi kahaan
ab tujhe baawre
kaun samjhaaye re
maan jaa rasiya
oye maar sutteya aa
maar sutteya
hoye balle balle nainaa yaar ke
yaar ke ae

main giri o sainyya raja
thhaam le tu mohe aaja aa
arre toot gaya gajraa re ae
chhoot gaya kajraa re
dekho haalat meri soneya aa
o salone piyaa
kaahe maange jiya
maan jaa zaalimaa
oye maar sutteya aa
maar sutteya
oye balle balle nainaa yaar ke

jaise chalke kataar
ho rahe dil ke paar
haaye re ae
haan maar sutteya aa
maar sutteya
hoye balle balle nainaa yaar ke
yaar ke ae
o balle balle nainaa yaar ke
