The film ‘Jwala’ was started sometimes in the second half of 1950s.  It was finally released in 1970, a year after the passing away of Madhubala.  As with some of her last films, this film also has deficient and compromised editing, and possible use of a double in some scenes, just to try and complete the storyline.  But forever, this will be known as her last released film.

I have mentioned it in the past that I am quite absent minded when it comes to remembering important dates. There were occasions when I turned up at my work place, only to realise that it was a holiday. But more importantly, I tend to be absent minded about important dates of personal importance too, viz birthday of my spouse etc, which is never a good idea. Fortunately, my daughter, who always keeps track of such dates comes to my rescue.

Here is a very catchy song from a by now forgotten movie called “Banphool”. Kishore Kumar sang this song with gusto. Lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi and the music was a typically racy Laxmikant Pyarelal tune.

How do I classify this song ? There are a few songs in this blog that I call “car songs” because they were sung while riding a car. Here the hero Jeetendra sings this song riding an elephant. 😉
