“Raja Rani” was a 1973 movie which was directed by Sachin Bhowmik – otherwise known to be a story and screenplay writer; it was produced by Jagdish Kumar.

The movie had a star cast led by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore (who seemed to look younger in this movie as compared to Aradhana of 1969 ??). The supporting cast consisted of David, Iftikar, Raj Mehra, Bhram Bharadwaj, Asit Sen, Suresh, Naaz. Dulari etc. Anand Bakshi wrote songs which tunes by R.D. Burman.

I have seen this movie so long back that it feels like another time and space and age but the synopsis given on Wikipedia helped stir my memory. Here it is:

A young widow commits suicide when she is compelled to forgo her modesty to save her child from illness. The child runs away on seeing his dead mother and becomes a thief named Raja. Raja is a very handsome and intelligent thief who manages to steal and escape from police every time.

He lives with his friend Tony who dreams of marrying his girlfriend Mary. Raja once steals at a home during night and police chase him. To escape from police, he enters into a marriage hall and in the bridegroom’s room. He finds a letter of groom who ran away as he does want to marry the girl his father arranged for him. Raja disguises himself as groom veiling his face with flowers when original groom’s father knocks the door. Raja eventually marries the girl in the marriage hall.

He feels troubled on whatever happened and he escapes from the room during the nuptial night without even seeing who is his wife as she has also veiled her face with wedding dress. The groom’s father and the bride misunderstand that original groom has escaped from the hall. Raja is caught by police and he sent to jail for six months. The original groom dies in an accident on the same night. Nirmala (the girl whom Raja married) is thrown out by her in-laws as she is an unlucky girl because of which their son died. Nirmala returns to her uncle’s home where she is not welcomed due to their financial position. She wanders everywhere and she finds no help from anybody rather try to spoil her modesty. She turns to a courtesan and dances for her living.

Raja is released from jail and he searches for the girl he married. When he does not find the whereabouts of that girl he returns to his normal life of stealing. He hires a room and stays with his friend Tony near the place where Nirmala, now courtesan Rani, resides. Raja visits Rani’s home to escape from police and he sees Rani dancing. Something makes him feel bad and he slaps Rani and throws away one of the clients who tried to misbehave with her. Rani does not get angry but she likes Raja slapping her. Rani and Raja, without knowing about their relation to each other, start to develop a feeling of love towards each other.

Rani insists Raja to stop stealing and Raja insists she stop dancing. Both decide to live a decent life. Rani changes the mind of one of her clients and because of which his wife accepts her as her sister as she saved her husband from doing wrong. Raja finds a job as school van conductor. But he loses his job when the school finds he was thief before. Raja and Rani do a small business of selling snacks but are charged for child theft one day. The father of the child is the man whom Rani changed from becoming bad. Rani and Raja are released and they become good friends of the man’s family.

The wife of the person invites to their child’s birthday party and gives her good saree and necklace to wear on that day. Rani loses the necklace given by the man’s wife. To return the necklace they struggle a lot as it costs in thousands. Raja and Rani are compelled to break the promise made to each other without each other’s knowledge. Raja goes to steal in home and gets caught. He finds Rani dancing in front of the owner of the house. When the owner of the house tries to misbehave with Rani, Raja rushes to save her. In a struggle, the owner is killed and Raja is blamed for that.

Did Raja really kill the owner? What happened to the necklace which both have lost? Did Raja and Rani know who they are to each other? This forms the rest of the story.

Two songs from this movie has been posted so far- one in 2008 and second in 2009, that itself is another age and time. The blog has come a long way since.

Today (8 december 2017) on the occasion of the 73rd birthday of Rinku Tagore alias Begum Ayesha Sultana wife of ex-Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. Ok let me make it simple. It is Sharmila Tagore’s birthday. She is a descendent of Rabindranath Tagore as both her parents were grand children of Rabindranath’s maternal and paternal brothers.

On researching about Sharmila I found that the little girl in Tapan Sinha’s 1957 ‘Kabuliwala’was her sister Tinku Tagore. Her children Saif and Soha have also followed in her footsteps to become actors of repute and even her daughter and son in-laws are actors of repute- Kareena and Kunal Khemmu.

Today’s song sees her with Rajesh Khanna walking the streets and beaches of Mumbai playback is by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.


Song-Main ek chor tu meri raani (Raaja Raani)(1973) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

This article is Peevesie’s mom’s 200th writeup in the blog

Hullo Atuldom

I had a message from Atulji after he posted my last contribution: “Your next write-up will be your 200th. So, make that a special write-up. 🙂 ”. And my reaction was “oh maa”. I didn’t realise I had done 200 posts. I knew I was within touching distance of the double century but not just one run away. But then here it is and I must thank Atulji for posting 99% of all that I have written and sent him since 2012.

Mere yaar ko mere allah de ek chaand sa pyaara lalla was my first post ever in any blog. I remember what I had sent him was one long unstructured post. Atulji was good enough to edit it to look readable. Plus the lyrics that I had sent had to be corrected for spellings etc. Before the song from “Dacait” I used to only send lyrics of those songs which I thought everyone will like and enjoy.

The first person to tell me “now that you have started writing please don’t stop” was my daughter, our Peevesie. I think I have kept my promise to her. My next post came around 15 days later for the birthdates of Amitabh and Rekha and since then whenever I think of a song I try to write something around that particular actor or actresses’ birthdays. That means I don’t write daily but about once in a week or 10 days.

My 100th post came up with this Sanjeev Kumar-Vidya Sinha song from “Hiraasat” and that first 100 took me a little more than three years. Now this next 100 posts have come in two years, so, just goes to show how much addiction I have developed in writing “for the blog”. And no, I have never tried to find rare songs only tried for different combinations. I also try my best to write and send a post for some dates in the calendar of this blog in addition to birthdates of Amitabh, Rekha, Kishore Kumar etc.

Now today is also a birthdate of an actress of the time when I was growing up. She was a style icon in her times. She proved that a girl clothed in western outfits was as much an Indian as a girl in a saree or salwar suit. She was unconventional in her style of dressing as well as the roles she chose. Consider this- you debut in a sister role to a hero and in your next movie with the same hero you try to woo him. Cut to two years later you again pair up with the actor and this time as his romantic co-star, this was something unheard of in an industry which said once a sister always a sister.

But without rebelling against the norms of the industry she gained a foothold in Bollywood and went on to be the favourite of the masses. B.R Chopra (whose anniversary was on 8th of this month) cast her in the role of a lady caught in a difficult marriage early on in her career and later he showed faith in her and this time cast her as rape- survivor who kills her tormentor when she finds that he has committed the same crime on her younger sister. Okay I agree my preamble is getting very confusing. I am talking of Zeenat Aman or Zeenie baby as her fans used to call her. The two B.R. Chopra films are “Dhundh” and “Insaaf Ka Tarazu”. The other movies that I referred to were- “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”, “Heera Panna” and “Ishk Ishk Ishk”- all with Dev Anand (she did about seven movies with Dev Anand.)

Zeenat Aman was liked by the audiences no matter whom she was paired with whether Amitabh, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Sanjeev Kumar etc. Oh yes, she had paired romantically with Sanjeev Kumar too. Remember “Manoranjan” “Takkar” etc. She was friendly with her female co-actors too as could be seen when she appeared in an episode of “Koffee with Karan” with Hema Malini. There have been movies where she has co-starred with Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi, Moushmi Chatterjee etc.

I am spoilt for choice as to which song to present today. I can choose from any of the movies I have mentioned or a song with any of the co-stars I have listed. I am choosing a song with the co-stars I listed, in fact a song which features three talented ladies- Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi and our dear birthday girl Zeenie. It is from the 1982 Umesh Mehra directed “Ashanti”. It had a huge star cast led by Rajesh Khanna and Mithun Chakravarty with the above-mentioned ladies and Amrish Puri. The music director was R.D. Burman and lyricist was Anand Bakshi. Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar. We have Mithun and Rajesh Khanna in disguise for that matter even the girls are dressed as Lavani dancers.

Happy Birthday Zeenat dear. Wish you all health and happiness today and forever.

Lyrics

suniye

arey tere aashiq bhare hain andar
paagal hain do chaar aar
hhaa aaa aa aa

aisi tikhat main aisi karaari

ik baabu ne pakad liya thha
ik din raste mein haath
aisi tikhat main aisi karaari

bechaare ki chutti ho gayi ee ee ee hi hi
bechaare ki chutti ho gayi
aisa ho gaya haal
log uthha ke le gaye usko seedha haspataal
bachke rehna
phir na kahna

laungi mirchi main kolhapur ki

haan

bade badon ke chhakke chhoote
sun kar mera naam
aate jaate karte hain sab
door se mujhe salaam

bade badon ke chhakke chhoote
sunkar mera naam
aate jaate karte hain sab
door se mujhe salaam
ek gali ka ladka mujhse
ae ae ae ae he
ek gali ka ladka mujhse

aaj talak gaata phirta
galiyon mein yahi geet

o bach ke rahna
phir na kehna
ho laungi mirchi main kolhapur ki
pahuna
lagi toh mushkil hogi
ho laungi mirchi main kolhapur ki
dajiba
lagi toh mushkil hogi
haan

waise to main sharmeeli hoon
lekin mere hazoor
mirchi mirchi hoti hai
nahin hoti koi khajoor
bhool se ik deewaana mera aa aa ho
bhool se ik deewaana mera
dil baitha thha maang
wahin hai baithha
jahaan pe maine
todi uski taang

o bach ke rahna
phir na kahna
ho laungi mirchi main kolhapur ki
pahuna
lagi toh mushkil hogi
laungi mirchi main kolhapur li
lagi toh mushkil hogi
si si karte phiroge ji ji
si si karte phiroge ji ee ee
lagi toh mushkil hogi
ho laungi mirchi main kolhapur ki
dajiba
lag gayi toh mushkil hogi

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Let us have a fun song from the 1981, Shomu Mukherjee produced & directed “Fiffty Fiffty” (and this is how fifty is spelt in the title card) which was certified on 15/10/1981 and released on 13/11/1981. It starred Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim with Om Shivpuri (Bihari), Purnima (Mrs. Thakur), Amarnath (Thakur Vijendra Singh who is killed by Mr. Bihari before the titles), IndraniMukerjee (Mrs. Bihari who becomes dumb due to Mr. Bihari), Jairaj, Anita Guha, Nazir Hussain, Johny Whisky, CS Dubey, Jankidas, Jagdeep, Mushtaq Merchant, Kader Khan and Ranjeet. Dialogues were by Kader Khan. Anand Bakshi wrote the songs and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors.

Today, the 18th of July 2017, is the 5th remembrance day of one of India’s most enigmatic and exasperating film stars. You don’t need to rack your brains too much to guess who I am talking about. It should be pretty obvious – is there anyone more loved, and at the same time, more derided than Rajesh Khanna, ever in the industry? A time was when he was worshipped by hundreds of thousands, and then a time came when the weight of the crown of being the self-styled superstar, became an annoying, nay, a highly dislike-able phenomenon.

In a calendar year we celebrate special anniversaries of personalities related to HFM in almost all the months. Moreover, we pay our respect and homages on the remembrance day of such personalities too.

We also celebrate birth anniversaries of our team members and their family members and other ‘special days’ in their life, through posts/songs on the blog.

Today (5 may 2017) is the 11th death anniversary of Naushad saab. He passed away on the 5th of May 2006.

This is the 9th opportunity for this blog to pay a tribute to Naushad saab on his death anniversary. And yet, though I’ve written tributes for many here, I don’t remember writing one for Naushad saab yet. So here goes.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

A very Happy Holi (today on date 13 march 2017) to all who visit this blog.

Let there be lot of colour all around you; but not on your clothes??; makes washing difficult ??! And if there is a water shortage in your region please play dry holi- with only colours. Ideally the colours should be organic; they do less harm to the skin and eyes -this is what I have read I haven’t used them ever. I don’t even remember when and where was my last holi; possibly when I had just moved to Dahisar in Mumbai back in 2000. But I still love to see others forget themselves in this game of colours. And also, I love to think of all the famous delicacies that are made at Holi. I have heard of Ghujiyas and Kaanji Vadas, Thandaai and Bhaang. Another major attraction to Holi (for me) these days are the various songs that play on the Radio and TV channels. Enough to drive one down memory lane.

Today, 08th March 2017, is the 96th birth anniversary of Sahir Ludhianvi – the poet – lyricist – whom we fondly remember for his memorable or rather immortal poetry and songs too – and the classic poetic gems – which he contributed to the Indian Cinema.

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This post under this series is not in chronological order as far as my ongoing reminiscences about Rajesh Khanna movies are concerned. But this post fits in this series about Rajesh Khanna. This particular movie “Chakravyooh”(1978) was critically acclaimed for the performance of Rajesh Khanna as also for ‘its offbeat story line’ which was at variance with typical Rajesh Khanna-romantic movies that we were used to.
