B. R. Chopra’s romantic comedy “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, based on the “seven-year itch” of Hollywood starring Marilyn Monroe made its blog debut on 25th February 2009 with the most famous song of the movie thhande thhande paani se nahaana chaahiye. After three years na aaj thha na kal thha was posted on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s Birthdate. After almost a full year Sudhirji gave us this article on a song which can be called as a “movie inside a movie” song.

All the posts with these songs give us a fair idea of what a fun movie “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” was. Hence, I am not writing any gist of the movie. The idea to revisit this movie came as there are promos of a modern version of this movie being shown on Television these days. I found that there are five songs in the movie and three have been posted on the blog. On going through YouTube, I could find only four songs from the movie. (resolution: shall sit through the movie one of these days to see if it has the missing song). I remember that “o duniya ke rakhwale” was used in the movie, actually only one line of the mukhda, when Sanjeev Kumar wants to reset his alarm clock. That was in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor.

I am trying desperately to refrain from writing what a fine actor Harihar Jethalal Jariwala -popular as Sanjeev Kumar- was, or about his comic timing or about his smart looks and smile. I am also not going to list out the wonderful movies that he has acted in or how much I love seeing him in emotional scenes. We have a brilliant post by Sudhirji mujhko to qaatil ki itni pehchaan hai which will give us a picture of the kind of actor Haribhai (as his friends in the industry addressed him).

Today on the occasion of the 34th remembrance day of Haribhai we can have the last available song from “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor, written by Anand Bakshi and Ravindra Jain was the composer. This lively song is at the wedding of friends of the lead couple, who later go ahead and get married (in the movie 🙂 ). The song kind of follows the qawwali format. This was one of the movies where Sanjeev Kumar acted his age and was not an aged person meaning senior citizen.

“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.
