Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

19/10/2020 – 64th Birthday of Sunny Deol
——————————————-
“Betaab” (1983) was produced by the Vijayta Films banner Dharmendra. This was the debut Hindi film of its lead actors, Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh. Today is Sunny Deol’s birthday, real name Ajay Singh Deol, made his debut at the age of 27 years.

The word “Betaab” evokes the Lata Mangeshkar’s melodious song “ Betaab dil ki tamanna yahi hai” by Madan Mohan in the film “Hanste Zakhm”. For a change, this is one of the films which I have seen, when it was released. I wanted to see the songs of this film for some time now, Sunny Deol’s birthday gave me the excuse. I have seen some of them, looking for a song shot on location. Critically speaking, this is not among the better scores by R. D. Burman. This is very basic, run of the mill music score, none of the RDB versatility being in evidence. May be the 80’s monotony is catching up with me. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist.

The location of the major parts of this film is a valley in Pahalgam, Kashmir, below the road leading to the glacier. The valley is named “Betaab valley”, and all tourist vehicles stop there on the way to Amarnath cave. It is a beautiful location, with the river flowing next to it.

We visited Kashmir in May 2012. I can say that it is one place on earth where time has stood still. I found a multiple locations which were seen in so many films of 60-80’s, the same as seen in the movies. Movie makers favorite location was the Dal Lake. The area surrounding it was a lot different, from what was seen in movies like “Aarzoo”. But I could see many places at Gulmarg and Pahalgam same as it was seen in movies. Seeing the wooden shop fronts in Pahalgam town, I remembered seeing the scene is “Bobby”.

Actually, Pahalgam has much more pristine and beautiful locations and points off the beaten track also, like the area called “Mini Switzerland”. I know the technology is so much advanced, and many megapixel cameras are now available to mankind to capture the nature’s beauty. But it is a fact that the human eye’s capacity is 576 megapixel. As far as I can understand, there is no camera in the world which can click or record at 576 megapixel.

This is what Google says, going to such details on a simple search:
“We see in 576 megapixel definition when our eyes are moving, but a single glance would only be about 5-15 megapixels. What’s more, your eyes naturally have a lot of flaws that a camera or digital screen don’t. For example, you have a built-in blind spot where your optic nerve meets up with your retina.”

Fantastic ! or zabardast ! But the fact remains whatever the camera captures or the digital screen displays, are to be seen and read by human eye. Visual input to the brain is through the eyesight, the brain can read only what the eyes will transmit.

Where I am going with all this? No where. But I can’t say I appreciate the way Google tried to dodge my question:) .

tajalli hai teri ye chaand kyaa hai chaandni kyaa hai
agar nazren salaamat hain to jalwon ki kami kyaa hai

Shakeel Badayuni – Laila Majnu(1953)

But I should not count my chickens here, as artificial intelligence may be able to transmit the perfect digital picture to human mind also, for all I know.

Like I said, give me such outdoorsy songs anytime, I am presenting the Shabbir Kumar Solo from “Betaab” filmed completely on location of the said ‘Betaab Valley”. In the song, Sunny Deol has found a “tasveer” of his childhood sweetheart Amrita Singh, in a magazine. He makes a cut out of the photo and sings this song, at his farm house, where he is shown to be rearing horses, and chickens etc.

In the movie Sunny Deol kidnaps Amrita Singh from her father’s house and keeps her in the farm house (seen the song) in a bid to remind her of their childhood friendship and love.

Some more trivia about the film:

• Singer Sonu Nigam played the role of Sunny Deol’s character as a child in this film.
• This film was remade in Telugu as “Samrat” (1987) and in Kannada as “Karthik” (2011).
• This was Javed Akhtar’s first film as a solo screenwriter after Salim – Javed split.
• Singer Shabbir Kumar got his big break in Hindi films when R.D. Burman got him to sing for all the songs in this film.

The movie must be something special to be remade in Telegu and Kannada, a reversal from what usually happens. I will elaborate the bit about Shabbir Kumar is the trivia above. It was said that, all songs of the film were to be recorded by Kishore Kumar. But since Kishore Kumar was away at the time, and the songs were needed for the scheduled shooting, they were recorded in the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The intention was to re-record the Shabbir Kumar portions afterwards in Kishore Kumar’s voice. But the songs turned out to be so well in Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar’s voices, that it was decided to keep the songs as it is. And thus the career boost for Shabbir Kumar happened.

I will end the post with a dialogue (by Sunny Deol) in the film, where Amrita Singh refuses to eat the food cooked by Sunny Deol. This is the dialogue I have had to repeat sometimes to my kids, 🙂 🙂 if they disagreed with my cooking:

“Khaana hai to yahi khaana hai, nahi khaana hai to bhi yahi khaana hai”

“Betaab”(1952) was produced and directed by Harbans for Susheel Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Naseem, Motilal, Kamal Kumar, Murad, Mirza Musharraf, Tiwari, Kamal, Nazeer Kashmiri, Agha Mirza, Afghan Sandow, S Kamal, Parvati devi, Meera Aarti etc.

“Betaab”(1952) had thirteen songs in it. Two songs have been covered so far.

Here is the third song from the movie. This song is sung by S D Batish. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Batish.

Going by the mukhda “binti karat hoon main tori maa” and going by the fact that it is penned by Bharat Vyas, some people may belieb=ve that it is a bhajan. Not al all. This song is a comedy song where a person is requesting his mother to get him married as soon as possible. He has no demands, no bars, no qualifications in mind for the prospective bride. The most openminded bridegroom ever !

The hilarious lyrics contains words that are considered politically incorrect now a adys but they raised no eyebrows those days. In any case it is a comedy song and it should be treated as such.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this fun song.


Song-Binti karat hoon main tori maa (Betaab)(1952) Singer-S D Batish, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics

agle phaagan tak jo mujhko
nahin milegi biwi
to saanch kahoon bhagwaan kasam
mujhe ho jaayegi t b
chaahe kaani ho
ya andhi ho
wo looli ho
ya langdi ho
chaahe goongi ho ya bahri ho
chaahe goongi ho ya bahri ho
wo kaali ho ya gori ma
tu shaadi kara de

mori shaadi shaadi shaadi

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Roopbani is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Batish.

Though the video of the song is available, I am quite clueless about the identity of the lady who lip sync this song while Ashok Kumar is seated on a grand piano.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the lip syncer.
