Today (13th August 2018) would have been the 56th birthday celebration, or she would have completed 55 years of age. But that was not to be and we her fans lost her to an alleged “accidental death” on the 24th of February earlier this year. I know I don’t have to spell it out that I am speaking of Sridevi. I am sure it is a greater loss for her family – her daughters and husband. Specially when her daughter has just stepped into Bollywood and had her first release last month. And Jayaprada has put it beautifully in her tribute to her one-time co-star and supposed rival – like any mother Sri was anxious about her daughter’s debut film and audience-acceptance etc.

Instead of talking about how beautiful she was; how talented she was; and about her dances and supremely expressive eyes; or her comic timing, I want to go straight to today’s song. It is from her first ever Hindi release – ‘Solva Sawan’ (1979). It was directed by P Bharathiraja and is a remake of his Tamil original ’16 Vayathinile’, which translates to “at age 16”. The original was a commercial and critical success fetching a National award for S Janaki (playback) and Filmfare Awards for best actor (Kamalhaasan) and special award for Sridevi. Unfortunately, the movie failed in Hindi and nobody noticed the debut of Sridevi and she had to wait for four years to establish herself in Hindi films. And what a career from thereon. Infact she had six or seven releases in 1983 beginning with the extremely successful “Himmatwala” which revolutionised many things in the industry – song picturization, choreography, set decoration (songs with 100s of pots, sarees, chorus dancers etc) and music as a whole. We had songs like: “Ice Cream Khaaogi“; “Ek Aankh Maroon To Rasta Ruk Jaaye“; “Taaki O Taaki“; “Mama Mia Pom Pom” etc. to name a few of the songs that went on to become very popular – I am sure the purists who are reading this list are squirming 🙂 . I am sorry for putting all of them to discomfort but this was the route to Sridevi’s success in Hindi. What followed this wave of inane songs were sensible stuff like “Main Teri Dushman Dushman Tu Mera“; “Kaate Nahi Kat’te Yh Din Ye Raat“; “Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Choodiyan Hain“; “Tere Dil Mein Main Apne Armaan Rakh Doon“;what I am trying to point out is it was one inane song per movie at the most but they initially overshadowed her sensible stuff. But it was a fact that she was a darling of the masses from the time she stepped in front of the camera as a child.

Coming back to today’s song. It is a coming-of-age song where the heroine experiences pangs of love and is expressing it to whoever cares to listen – here it is the nature. And the white dress is supposed to indicate the purity of her feelings towards the veterinarian doctor (it was some actor called Madhukar, didn’t find any details about him on the net) who has arrived in the village and has managed to win her heart. The rest of the cast comprised of Amol Palekar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and Dina Pathak. The song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and music is by Jaidev. The singing voice is of Vani Jairam. Sridevi was actually only 16 when this movie was released.

[Ed Note: The censors certified this film in 1978, and the Geet Kosh carries it in the list of films from 1978. It was probably released in theatres few months later, in 1979.]
