Today, it is the turn of this 1973 Vinod Khanna starrer – ‘Dhamki’ to join the list of Yippeee films on our blog.

In 1973, it had been five years since Vinod Khanna made his debut with the film ‘Man Ka Meet’ (1968) and two years since he got his first break as a hero (in ‘Hum, Tum Aur Woh’ (1971)). He started his career as a villain, and continued to work with negative and also supporting roles in many films, before graduating into leading roles. His image as an energetic action person, actually brought to him more roles as an action hero. Many of his initial roles are either as a dacoit chief or a police inspector. The film ‘Dhamki’ is not much different. He plays the role of a CBI inspector who works to foils the plans of some foreign agents, trying to take over the control of a small erstwhile kingdom, by eliminating the new teenager heir to the throne. Vinod Khanna, helped by Mehmood Junior takes on this gang and saves the heir and the kingdom from falling into foreign hands.

This film was released, sandwiched between two other significant films of Vinod Khanna, in which he has played very sensitive roles which became better known films of that year. The first is ‘Achaanak’, which reprises the famous Nanavati murder case, and adds another dimension to it. The second is ‘Imtihaan’ in which Vinod Khanna has played the role of a college professor, taking on an educationist role very seriously. In comparison, ‘Dhamki’ may have been treated as just another cops and robbers tale.

The film is directed by Parvez for the banner of Tasveer Movies, Bombay. Interesting to note that Vinod, almost a debutante hero in 1973 was cast opposite to Kum Kum, who by this time was a veteran actress of a little over two decades, although her age does not show that on screen. Others in the list of actors are Ramesh Deo, Bela Bose, Junior Mehmood, Jaishree T, Meena T, Imtiaz, Tiwari, Sham Kumar, Brahm Bhardwaj, Munshi Munakka, Johnny Whisky etc. with special appearances by Helen, Ranjeet and Subhash Ghai.

There are five songs listed for this film. One song, “Kali Se Nazaaron Se Bahaaron Se” is penned by Verma Malik. The remaining four songs have been penned by Asad Bhopali. With the posting of this song, songwriter Asad Bhopali touches the double century milestone. He now has two hundred songs showcased on our blog.

The music is from the mind of that prodigal genius – Ganesh. The readers of this blog are by now very familiar with this name. Associated with an illustrious family of musicians, he is the son of Ram Prasad Sharma, and younger brother to Pyaarelal Ram Prasad Sharma (of the Laxmikant Pyaarelal duo).  In the beginning of 1960s, the name of Ganesh came to be acknowledged as the key contributor to the success of the music of Laxmikant Pyaarelal.  The effect of this impression in the industry was so strong that by the mid 1960s, he got about 10 assignments as an independent music director, even before a single film with his music had even got to the studio floors.

Ganesh was an expert with many instrument and a genius with creating tunes. He had the ability to create newer, fresher melodies that one had to stop and pay attention to. Pick up any film done by him (of which there sadly aren’t many), any song created by him, and as you listen, and if you are not aware of the identity of the music director, you will surely wonder who would it be, the creator of such a lovely melody. Somehow, the combination of the tones, the octaves and the emphases make the tunes created by this hugely talented musician simply touch a very endearing nerve, and the heart simply wants to sing along with the flow of the song.

But alas, recognition and success was not in his destiny. His songs, buzzing with hummable and memorable tunes, played themselves out in B and C grade cinema productions. Some of his songs escaped this banishment to the C grade world, and found a place on the radio waves, and in the mind and memories of listeners. Some such songs have remained in the memories; but then there are many other remarkable creations from him that are being rediscovered through this blog.

The earlier songs of this film that have been posted are,

1.       Chaand Kyaa Hai Roop Ka Darpan
2.       Hamsafar Ho Hamsafar Gham Na Kar
3.       Kali Se Nazaaron Se Bahaaron Se
4.       Yaaron Mujhe Peene Do

Today’s song is a stage dance song, which is performed on screen by Kum Kum, accompanied by. . .  an actress I am not able to place. She is either Jaishree T or Meena T. I request other readers and friends to kindly confirm. As is apparent from the sequence in this video clip, the plan is to eliminate the young heir to the throne by making him sit under a large glass chandelier, which will be made to fall on him at the end of the performance. The hero CBI officer and his side kick have been overpowered and are tied to water pipes in the basement. From the looks of it, all the members of the ‘evil’ gang are present in the audience. I can make out Sham Kumar and Ramesh Deo, and many more that I am not able to name, including a lady in yellow dress. Again, request to the more knowledgeable readers to help identify more people in this clip.

With this song, music director Ganesh now has 57 songs posted on our blog. Given that his total body of work is around 80 to 85 songs, we are close to getting all his songs on board. But for today, ‘Dhamki’ joins the list of films with all songs poster here. Time for another ‘Yippeee’ call.

[Ed Note: Dear Prakash ji has confirmed that the dancer on stage with Kum Kum is Jaishree T. And the lady in yellow dress, sitting in the audience, is Meena T. Prakash ji has also pointed out an error in the list of songs of this film – a case of incorrect cut and paste from another file. He has also pointed out the correction that there are two lyricists credited for this film. Prakash ji, thanks so much for your vigilant inputs, and for helping to update the correct information into this post. 🙂 ]

कौन वफादार है
कौन बेवफा है
तुमको भी पता है
हमको भी पता है
कौन वफादार है
कौन बेवफा है
तुमको भी पता है

राज़ है जो दिल में
पराई महफिल में
हम कैसे बताएं बताएं
कौन खतावार है
कौन बे-खता है
तुमको भी पता है
हमको भी पता है
कौन वफादार है
कौन बेवफा है

झूठी
ये दुनिया झूठी
देती रही है धोखा सभी को

जी भर के चाहो तुम भी किसी को
सागर

आओ ना॰॰॰
आओ ना प्यार करें
हाँ करें
दीवानों
रात मज़ेदार है
बात बेवजह है
तुमको भी पता है
हमको भी पता है
कौन वफादार है
कौन बेवफा है
तुमको भी पता है
हमको भी पता है

आँखें
दो प्यासी आँखें
कहती हैं रख दो
सीने पे सर भी
सोचो
हाँ इतना सोचो
कल की तो क्या
नहीं पल की खबर भी
जलवे

आओ ना॰॰॰
आओ ना प्यार करें

अंग लचकदार है
रंग फूल सा है
तुमको भी पता है

कौन वफादार है
कौन बेवफा है
तुमको भी पता है
हमको भी पता है
राज़ है जो दिल में
पराई महफिल में
हम कैसे बताएं बताएं
कौन खतावार है
कौन बे-खता है
तुमको भी पता है

“Reporter Raju”(1962) was a Wadia Brothers Productions/ Basant Pictures production movie. It was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Dwarka Khosla. The movie had Feroze Khan, Chitra, Jeevankala, Indira, Baby Vidya Rani, Manorama, Ratnamala, Sulochana Chatterjee, Shah Agha, Sunder, Majnoo, Shakeel Noomani, Raj Adeeb, Mintobai, Gani, Mohammed Ali, Geeta, Paro, Julian, B.M.Vyas, Anthny, Bismilla, Mithoo miyaa etc in it.

The movie receives a favourable review from Memsaab.

This movie had five songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Reporter Raju”(1962) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur, Rafi and chorus. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Mohinder. This is the most fun filled on all the songs in the movie. From the details provided in Memsaab’s review, we gather that this qawwali is performed by Kohinoor Theater Company led by Dewan Sunderlal (Sunder) and his beloved Gopi (Jeewankala). The lyrics of the qawwaali tell us of the situation when women would rule. If that happened then it is the males who would be required to remain behind veil. Women would go to office and males would be left holding up crying kids.

The lyricist, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan has let his hair down and he has come up with some wonderfully hilarious scenario for hapless males in a women ruled world. 🙂 The song is an aural and visual delight !

PS-My thanks to Prakashchandra for identifying several actors in the picturisation.

With this fantastic gem of a qawwwali, “Reporter Raju”(1962) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

It is believed that one needs to train hard and later work hard to become anything in life. But in India, people try to avoid hard work and want to succeed overnight. People trying to use “approach” to please higher ups-be they top officials or gods, instead of working to qualify for the job, is common.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“वो चाँद सा चेहरा लिए, छत पर तेरा आना

tu raat khadi thi chhat pe
nee main samjha ke chaand nikla

There is something so uniquely desi about this romantic element – ‘chhat pe’ – ‘on the rooftop’ scenario. If it were the western milieu, the thought would be to go as far as the balcony; the scenario being Juliet present at the balcony and Romeo serenading her from the garden below. No where the western writer has thought of ascending to the terrace, bring in the soubriquet of the moon, and then let the verse take over from there. On the subcontinent, so much romance seems to have happened on the terrace, in the pages of prose and in the lines of verse.

Erich Segal’s immortal novel “Love Story” has inspired quite a few movies. The first such movie was a Hollywood movie of the same name that was released in 1970, a few months after this novel was released on 14 february 1970.

Hindi movies have also joined the bandwagon. “Ankhiyon ke Jharokhon se” (1978) was based on “Love Story”. A Rajshree Productions release, this movie was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Hiren Nag. Vrajendra Gaur as the writer had adapted this story, Indianising the movie as much as he could.
