Om Prakash Chibber- better known as Om Prakash- was an actor who was seen mainly in character roles, in movies of the late 1950s till the very end of his career i.e. till 1994, “Bhai No 1” that released in 2000 came two years after his passing. He was only 78 at the time of his death.

But telling Om Prakash was a character actor is wrong, just because I saw him first as Sharmila Tagore’s ‘jijaji’ in the hilarious, Hrishikesh Mukherjee directed “Chupke Chupke” in 1975 (I am sure this is a movie I first watched on Doordarshan). He was adorable in this song. Similarly I saw him as Ramlal – father to Mehmood, Kalpana and Rajasree- in “Pyar Kiye Jaa” (again on DD). He was amazing through that film and this scene from “Pyar kiye jaa” (1966) was a standout. There are hundreds of such scenes that I can list out here as an example of what an outstanding actor this artiste was.

He began his career as a radio broadcaster in All India Radio in 1937. I have seen a biographical video somewhere on YouTube which talks of his journey from radio to films and how Dalsukh Pancholi gave him his first break in films in the 1944 release “Daasi” after which he was a regular in Hindi films. Here I should apologize for my ignorance, as to whether Om Prakashji has ever played a hero in any of his films. I do know that his was the central character in many movies where a Sanjay Khan or a Navin Nischol (just to give 2 examples) were the romantic lead as in “Das Lakh” or “Buddha Mil Gaya” . Can anyone forget the characters he played in “Namak Halal”, “Sharaabi”, “Zanjeer”, “Loafer”, “Howrah Bridge”, ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne”, “Azaad”, and and and hundreds of others.

He may have had songs filmed on him in the initial years of his career but the following songs have stayed in my mind

Song Movie (Year) Date of post in the blog
Iint ki dukki paan ka ikka Howrah Bridge (1958) 5 February 2009
Oy buddho lambo lambo Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 3 march 2009

Suno re saadho ye sansaaram ultam paltam ho gaya Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi (1970) 21 February 2018

Meri patni mujhe sataati hai is a song that I discovered today.

He has had Manna Dey, Mohd. Rafi, Mahendra Kapoor etc giving playback for him. Today we see him singing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice, a song written by Aziz Kashmiri and tuned by Shankar Jaikishan.

“International Crook” (1974) was a movie produced and directed by Pachhi who also played the role of Jamal Pasha in that movie. I have read in some post, in our blog, that Pachhi was Om Prakash’s brother, and when (by chance) I saw the movie recently I was 100% sure (for sometime at least) that Omji was playing a double role. Then it occurred to me that this person had a huge paunch and hence cannot be Om Prakashji.

“International Crook” had six songs of which the blog has this song which was Avinashji’s contribution on the occasion of Dharmendra’s 85th birthday. Today’s song is to recall Om Prakashji, it is 24 years since he left this mortal world.


Song-Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna (International Crook)(1974) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Aziz Kashmiri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

badhti dekhi aazaad se
saath saath mehangaai
arre sabko milkar rote dekha
kya dhobi kya naai
o mat ro mere laala
nahin to main bhi ro doonga

aur is darr ke maare maine
aur is darr ke maare maine
shaadi nahin karaai
shaadi nahin karaai

o Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna

teri aankhen band neend se
aur dushman hoshiyaar
jaag nahin to le doobegi
dushman ki lalkaar
o praaji jaago
wo lut jaayega desh wo jiske
lut jaayega desh wo jiske
so jaayen pehredaar
so jaayen pehredaar

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 115 # Debutant movie – International Crook-1974
——————————————————

In our mission of bringing remaining Shankar-Jaikishan movies on the blog, today we are introducing the movie ‘International Crook-1974’.

Today 8th December is also the eighty-fifth birthday of actor-producer Dharmendra (born on 8th December’1935) who acted in this movie. He is lip syncing and performing on this song from the above movie, and we will enjoy this song while we wish him a ‘very very Happy Birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’.

‘International Crook’ (alias ‘Kaalaa Baazaar’) was directed by Pachhi for his home productions ‘Pachhi, Bombay’. Pachhi was also the producer and writer of this movie.

The movie had Dharmendra, Saira Banu, Feroz Khan and Om Prakash with Hiralal, Rajan Haksar, Sushila, Rathod, Foreign artists Azar, Lily, Ferooze, Shaheen and supported by Sunder, Manorama, Raj Mehra, Jayshree T., Habib, Sulochana Chatterjee and Jagdeep.

Screenplay of this movie was written by R.S. Chaudhury, editing of this movie was done by Shyam Rajput. Dialogues for this movie were written by Aziz Kashmiri who also wrote the lyrics for all the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.07.1974 with ‘restricted viewing (A) certificate’.

Music for ‘International Crook-1974’ was composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

This movie had six songs sung by Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar and Sharda as given below

Song
Crook crook crook, International crook …
Mere dil mein tu hi tu hai zaraa aitbaar kar le ae
Pyaar ki mujhpe nazar kyaa daali
Bachnaa chorbazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
Husn-e-Iran o meri jaan
Poochha jo pyaar kya hai, sharmaa ke maar daala

I had never gone through this movies’ songs earlier and it was the first time that I was listening to them. Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on-screen Dharmendra is performing with Saira Banu also with him in the picturization the song.

I liked the song and it certainly grows upon us if we listen to it again and again. Also, it has been shot at beautiful outdoor picturesque location (foreign locations, I guess 😊). This song has beautiful lyrics written by Aziz Kashmiri and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its other songs please.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and welcome 😊 ‘International Crook-1974’ on the blog ….

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas while in the video the first stanza seems to be edited or may be there is other link of full song may be).
