“Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989) was produced by Habib Nadiadwala and directed by Tinnu Anand. The movie was an adaptation of Frank Capra’s “Meet John Doe”(1941). Amitabh Bachcahn played the lead role in the movie.

While “Meet John Doe”(1941) was a superhit movie, its Hindi adaptation failed miserably at the box office. “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989), like its Hollywood original, showed the hero as a common man, helpless against system. Indian audience, brought up on staple diet of escapist movies were not mature enough to appreciate movies that were off the beaten track. People expected Amitabh Bachchan to play his usual larger than life superman like character, but the movie depicted him as an ordinary man, as powerless and helpless as most ordinary men, and movie goers were not prepared for that. While “Meet John Doe”(1941) was a superhit movie, its Hindi adaptation failed miserably at the box office. So it showed, if any proof was needed that Indian audience of 1989 had not reached the maturity of Hollywood audience of 1941 !

Personally I quite liked the movie, but I was in a minority. Most other people had expected to see Amitabh Bachchan as an angry young man of “Trishul” or “Andha Kaanoon” and they felt let down with the non escapist fare that this movie served.

“Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989) had just one song in it.

Here is that sole song from “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989). This song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and chorus, in addition to some unidentified voices. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and it is picturised on himself. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Amar Utpal.

Since it is the only song from the movie, this song serves dual purpose simultaneously. This song is the debutant song as well as a YIPPEE song. So one can say, rather pompously that “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989), makes its debut in the blog with this song and get YIPPEED as well. 🙂


Song-Itne baazoo itne sar (Main Aazaad Hoon)(1989) Singer-Amitabh Bachchan, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Amar Utpal

Today , the 20th of June, is a special day for us Atulites.

What’s so special about it, you ask?

Well, he who celebrates the birthdays of so many artistes here (and has an anniversary page on the blog) just happens to have been born on this date, a few summers ago.

Wishing all followers of ASAD a very Happy Diwali… I know the festival of lights is over but the schools are yet to reopen after the Diwali Holidays. So the spirit of Diwali is still there in the air.

When ‘Anand’ was released in theatres in 1970, I was still in school. I remember I did not get a chance to see this film on the big screen in the first run.  It would be later re runs that I got to see this film.  Being still not very involved with cinema and music, the best fare for us used to be what we could see on Doordarshan.  Rather, whatever was telecast on Doordarshan was always the quality stuff in my mind.  So having watched films like ‘Sikander’ (1941) and ‘Roti’ (1942) and ’Baazi’ (1951) on TV, the micro mind of mine carried them as benchmarks and anything that we would see on posters and billboards going to and from school, would be just so so.  I remember, when we came to know about this film ‘Anand’, the names Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan did not mean much to us.  Rajesh Khanna, to some extent, as we had all heard the “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani Kab Aayegi Tu” that became popular the year earlier.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 4
—————————————————–

Almost ‘Lolita’, but not quite so.  In the book, the young nympho is only 12 years old, and the old man is actually a pedophile.  In this Hindi film take off, the young girl is 18, and the old man is not a pervert, but is actually in love. And for all that matters, for all the time it matters, it is a two way love between the girl and the old man.

Around the time this film was relased, a joke was doing the rounds. Q: What is the height of good luck?  A: Amitabh in ‘Nishabd’.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 3
—————————————————–

There is something very special about his voice.  Not that other thespians of the industry are any way less impressive.  Every actor and actress have their own unique styles and expressions, and many of them have become memorable across the decades.  The sounds and the words sometimes combine together to leave such an imprint on the mind of the audiences, that certain dialogues of certain artists become popular and become part of the current idiom.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 2
—————————————————–

I am sure everyone remembers Dr. Bhaskar Bannerji.  A very young rookie doctor, who is very troubled with the state of health affairs in general.  An introvert and reserved person, living a very sedate life.  The story is ‘Anand’ and the actor behind the Babu Moshai character captured the attention and the imagination of the audiences and critics alike.  He was new, and struggling and still to land a lead role for himself.  That was 1970.
