Hullo to all in Atuldom

September 2, 2017. The lady who made the fringe-cut hair style popular would have been 76. Yes, I am talking of Sadhana and that hair style called “sadhana cut”. I am sure every girl of the 1960s and 70s would have sported the style at least once in her lifetime. Apparently this look was inspired from the British actress Audrey Hepburn (some more on this later).

Sadhana was born in a Sindhi family in Karachi (now in Pakistan). Her father was the elder brother of Hari Shivadasani; that makes Babita her first cousin and Karisma and Kareena her nieces. Post partition they settled in Mumbai where she had her schooling. She was in Bombay’s Jai Hind college when she was approached by some producer who had seen her on a college stage-play. This led to her debut in movies through the Sindhi film ‘Abaana’.

Sashadhar Mukherjee took her on to co-star his debutant son Joy Mukherjee after seeing her in an ad of the Sindhi movie. RK Nayyar, till then an assistant director, was the director of the film. It was RK Nayyar (later her husband) who worked on her look and gave her the Audrey Hepburn fringe and thus ‘Love in Simla’ became the launch vehicle for Joy Mukherjee, Sadhana and Sadhana-cut. In this film she had a tomboyish character that blooms into a beautiful lady; something akin to the ugly-duckling changing into a swan. Post the debut there were a spate of movies showcasing her talent as the simple village girl “Parakh”; or simple middle-class girl “Asli Naqli”; or the simple rich girl “Hum Dono”. That doesn’t mean she always played the simple girl, alongside these movies she also starred in Raj Khosla’s trilogy of suspense films. I don’t tire of seeing “Mera Saaya” specially the courtroom scenes and her naughty expression as the street dancer in “Jhumka Gira Re”; but then she was unforgettable in all the songs of that movie and throughout the entire movie.

If I sit to draw up a list of my favourite Sadhana songs “Lag Ja Galey Ke Phir Ye Haseen Raat Ho Na Ho”and “Naina Barse” – both from ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964), will top the list which will include “Jhumka Gira Re”, “Tu Jahaan Jahaan Chalega Mera Saaya Saath Hoga” – both from ‘Mera Saaya (1966), “Tera Mera Pyar Amar” (‘Asli Naqli’, 1962) “Main To Tum Sang Nain Mila Ke” (‘Manmauji’, 1962), “Chehere Pe Khushi Chha Jaati Hai” (‘Waqt’, 1965), “Geet Tere Saaz Ka Teri Hi Awaaz Hoon” (‘Inteqaam’, 1969), and more. And the song from ‘Hum Dono’ (1962)  “Abhi Na Jaao Chhod Kar” will try to push “Lag Ja Galey Ke Phir Ye. . .” from the top of the list (depending on my mood 😊). Of course, she was a big actress much before I began to see movies with a conscious mind. Whatever I have seen is all thanks to the weekend movies shown on Doordarshan in the late 70s and 80s. But the songs, which have been playing over and over again on the radio waves made me her fan. I remember seeing her as an avenging angel in ‘Inteqaam’ (1969), scaring Manoj Kumar in ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964), as also the typical eye candy act in movies like ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Aap Aaye Bahaar Aayi’ (1971), ‘Raajkumar’ (1964), ‘Aarzoo’ (1965) etc. (all thanks to DD).

She made a comeback to movies, briefly, after her illness starred in ‘Ek Phool Do Maali’ (1969), ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’ (1972), etc.and also produced a few movies like ‘Geeta Mera Naam’ (1974) and ‘Pati Parmeshwar’ (1989) starring Dimple Kapadia.

‘Geeta Mera Naam’ was a 1974 movie produced by RK Nayyar. Sadhana was the star and the director of the film. The film also starred Sunil Dutt, Feroz Khan, Helen and Rajendranath. The film’s music is by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This is the synopsis that Wikipedia gives

The film tells the story of four children who are separated at a fair and unknowingly reunite years later when Geeta (Sadhana) meets Nita (also Sadhana) in prison. Nita has been wrongly accused of murder. Geeta is then caught up in a scheme to find the true killer which leads her to her brother Johnny’s (Sunil Dutt) gang.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle with both Helen and Sadhana lip syncing to her. It looks like a pre-climax song where Feroz Khan is desperately trying to save Sadhana (I am guessing this).
[Ed Note: Prakash ji has identified the male dancer accompanying Helen in this video clip as Oscar Unger.]

Let us enjoy and think what it would have been like if Sadhana had not taken sanyaas from movies – would she have gone the way her contemporaries Asha Parekh, Mala Sinha etc. did- meaning doing mother and bhabhi roles or would she have turned full time producer etc. Oh we can let our imagination run wild and speculate.

 

Song – Mujhe Maar Daalo Main Mar Jaaungi (Geeta Mera Naam) (1974) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

 

Lyrics

haan mujhe mar daalo
main mar jaoongi
marte marte ye saabit kar jaoongi
ke zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
mujhe mar daalo
main mar jaoongi
marte marte ye saabit kar jaoongi
ke zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
haan

toofano se mujhe aata hai khelna
mere liye khel hai zulmon ka jhelna
haan haan haan haan haan
haan haan haan haan haan
toofano se mujhe aata hai khelna
mere liye khel hai zulmon ka jhelna
zulmo pe zulm karo
zulm sahoongi
phir bhi kahoongi
ke zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi

aaa aaa aa aaa aa
aaa aaa aa aaa aa
aaa aaa aa aaa aa
aaaa

nikhra hua hai kaisa
aaj rang sham ka
aise me kyon na aye
mazaa inteqaam ka
haan haan haan haan haan
haan haan haan haan haan
nikhra hua hai kaisa
aaj rang sham ka
aise me kyon na aye
mazaa inteqaam ka
gore badan se jo khoon bahega
beh ke kahega
ke zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi

jitna sitam karo
utna hi kam hai
jeene ki khushi hai
na marne ka gum hai
haan haan haan haan haan
haan haan haan haan haan
jitna sitam karo
utna hi kam hai
jeene ki khushi hai
na marne ka gum hai
qaatil zubaan se jo chup rahega
lahu to kahega
ke zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi

mujhe mar daalo
main mar jaoongi
marte marte ye saabit kar jaoongi
ke zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
zindagi bhi maut hai
maut bhi hai zindagi
haan

मेरे लियूए खेल है ज़ुल्मों को झेलना
हाँ हाँ हाँ हाँ हाँ
हाँ हाँ हाँ हाँ हाँ

After yet another fairly long absence from the blog, I am back here with this post.

As I said in my previous post, this absence has purely to do with my tendency sometimes to withdraw from social contact and go into a shell. It is a phase I go through and has absolutely nothing to do with any specific individual or group.

Least of all, this blog.

Jay Bholenath. Happy Maha Shivartri to all.

I pray to Lord Mahadev to give strength to one and all.

On this occasion (24 februarry 2017), we have the last song from Mehmood’s “Kunwaara Baap”(1974). It is picturised on Mehmood, Bharati, Aachi (as Manorama was called in Tamil movies) and others. It shows Mehmood pleading with the lord to give strength to his child’s legs. Bharati is shown pinning for her lost child which she had left at the stairs of this very temple. Aachi is there to provide moral support to Mehmood.

Today (20 january 2017) is the 12th death anniversary of Parveen Babi (4 April 1949 – 20 January 2005). She was the classiest and prettiest leading actress of 1970s as far as I was concerned. Unlike most other leading actresses of her time, she sadly had a disturbed life post retirement when she suffered from mental disorders viz paranoia, schzopheria etc and she met with an anonymous death staying alone. Her death in fact was discovered on 22 january 2005 after her residential society secretary alerted the police that she had not collected milk and newspapers from her doorstep for three days. Police speculated that she was dead for about 72 hours before her body was discovered. That is how her death has been estimated to have taken place on 20 january 2005.
