Hullo Atuldom

Two Indian actors were born in 1938 one in Calcutta and another in Surat. Both had their first movies around 1960/61. But their first film together happened sometime in 1977/78. “Mukti” (1977) was perhaps the first time they acted together. I am speaking of Shashi Kapoor (18th March 1938) & Sanjeev Kumar (9th July 1938), post which they were seen in 9/10 movies, the last of which released in 1989. I discovered this movie just before I began writing this post. The print that is available online is not very good but it gives a fair idea of the film.

“Oonch Neech Beech” was a movie produced by Jagdish Varma and directed by Wasi Khan (never heard of these names). Music direction was by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza, Anjaan & Aziz Qaisi (another new name) were the lyricists. Nitin Mukesh, Kamlesh Awasthi, Suresh Wadkar, Mahendra Kapoor were the playback singers. Raageshwari (according to various online sites, the titles card of the movie was not very helpful) was the only female singer used.
I have already mentioned that Shashi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar were in the cast. Additionally there were two power house performers- Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil. Then there were Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Nilu Phule, Sudhir, N.A. Ansari, Krishan Dhawan & Jagdish Raj playing important roles. The look that the cast sported in the movie was not like the way audiences were used to seeing them, specially the male in the cast. Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil carried looks that looked like extension of their realistic (meaning Art) films. The whole ambience of the film gave me a feeling that it was a long-in-the-making film. Readers may recall that Sanjeev Kumar had died in 1985 and Smita Patil in 1986. Possible that this may have been completed much before Sanjeev Kumar and Smita Patil died because the artists seem to have dubbed for themselves.

As for the storyline- Tulsi (Shabana Azmi) is a married woman who is deserted by her husband (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) at a railway station. Motilal (Shashi Kapoor) is the station master there and Hariram (Sanjeev Kumar) the coolie. These two try to help out Tulsi in her predicament, before Sumati (Smita Patil) enters the scene as Motilal’s wife. There is the usual misunderstanding between husband and wife as regards the relation that is between Tulsi and Motilal.
Here I would like to say that I am yet to see the full movie. I stopped seeing when I reached the song that we are having today. It is a multi-version song and I stopped seeing after the first version. Shashi Kapoor starts the song in Kamlesh Awasthi’s voice and Suresh Wadkar is playback for Sanjeev Kumar
Thinking of the cute actor of the Kapoor Khaandan today on his 5th anniversary. Shashi Kapoor passed away this date in 2017 (3 months before turning 80). He son Kunal Kapoor who had acted in afew films is essentially an Ad filmamker and daughter Sanjana who also featured in a some movies of the late 80s is now a theatre personality. Shashi Kapoor’s youngest son Karan Kapoor who began his journey as model for Bombay Dyeing etc is now into photography and settled in the UK.

P.S After writing the above post I finished seeing the movie. I found that the print that is available online has only one version of the song. Also the audio version on youtube is longer.

Apart from mainstream movies, which meant “action” movies in 1970s, there were social/family movies as well in those days. One major maker of such movies was Rajshree productions. In addition, there were a few south Indian producers of such social/ family movies as well.
