I am not well-informed about Hindi films of 1980s and beyond, except about those that I have watched in the theatres or on Video sharing platforms. Between the late 1960s and early 1970s, I used to watch almost one film every week either on Saturdays or Sundays. My ‘over-exposure’ to films, mostly masala films, during this period created an aversion in me that discuraged me from watch theese films in the later years. Probably the theory of diminishing marginal utility was being applied to me. Over a period of time, my quota of watching films came down from once a week to 2-3 films a year which is still in force. Because of this, I have missed many entertaining and a few quality films released especially in 80s and 90s.

It may sound strange but until yesterday, I was not aware that there was a film titled ‘Swati’ (1986). I do not recall having heard about this film from any one of my relatives and friends who have interest in Hindi films. What attracted me to know more about this film was that first, it was a film from a well-known banner, Prasad Productions. Secondly, its ensemble of star cast included Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Meenakshi Seshadri, Madhuri Dixit, Vinod Mehra, Sarika, Akbar Khan among others. I was not aware that Meenakshi Seshadri and Madhuri Dixit had worked together in a film. I came to know later that both of them had earlier worked together in ‘Aawaara Baap’ (1985).

From the synopsis of the film’s story, it appeared that Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore worked in this film in the role of an elderly couple. The combination of the actors under a well-known film production banner motivated me to watch the film, the DVD of which was available on-line. The film was a remake of a Telugu film of the same title which was released in 1984 and became the box office hit. The film was also remade in Kannada as ‘Usha’ (1986). The story of the film is as under:

Dr. Rajendra (Shashi Kapoor) is a doctor who runs a nursing home. Sharda (Sharmila Tagore) works as a nurse with Rajendra. An event in her life has happened which has forced her to live a life in anonymity and as a single mother (I will not go into the details). She has a grown up daughter, Swati (Meenakshi Seshadri). She is under the impression that her father has deserted her mother which had made her a feminist and outspoken. She hates hypocrisies and prejudices which dominate our society.

During one of her argumentative encounters with a group of males, Swati meets Ram Mohan (Akbar Khan) who is associated with some leftist group and always seen with writing slogans on the walls. After the initial hate relations with Ram Mohan, Swati falls in love with him. Dr. Rajendra has been a widower with a grown-up daughter, Anandi (Madhuri Dixit), a tomboyish type girl. She is in love with Kapil (Raja Bundela) simply because her idol is cricketer, Kapil Dev. She is also fond of asking her father as well Kapil puzzles to solve.

Swati thinks that after her marriage with Ram Mohan, her mother will be left alone. She needs a companion. Swati knows that her mother and Dr Rajendra like each other but due to societal constraints, both can not think of upgrading their fondness into a life partnership. Swati persuades her mother and Dr Rajendra to get married. His daughter, Anandi is happy that she would get a mother. The marriage takes place and Swati and her mother shift to Dr. Rajendra’s house. Things are now well settled. Both Swati and Anandi gel very well too. Anandi’s marriage with Kapil is also fixed.

One day, Swati finds an old man lying on the road unconscious. She takes him to Dr. Rajendra’s nursing home. The patient come into consciousness and tells his life story to Swati. It becomes apparent that he is Satya Prakash, Sharda’s fiancé and Swati’s real father. If the real story comes into light, it may affect the marriage of Anandi with Kapil. It is also likely to affect the relations of Rajendra and Sharda. But Swati steers the unforeseen problem taking into the confidence Rajendra after revealing him the real story and taking a promise from him that he would not reveal his patient’s identity to her mother. Satya Prakash knows that he has no chance of survival. His wish is to see Sharda for the last time.

On the day of marriage of Anandi with Kapil, Both Rajendra and Swati arrange to bring Satya Prakash to the marriage venue. He gets to see Sharda during the marriage ceremony from a balcony. After the kanyadan ceremony is over, Satya Prakash is happy to see Sharda. With happiness displayed over his face, Satya Prakash dies.

I found the film in keeping with tradition of Prasad Productions which is known for producing films in the genre of family drama. In the standard of 1980s, the story of the film is bold and broad-minded. From the title of the film, it is apparent that it is Meenakshi Seshadri’s film. I have not seen any film of Meenakshi Seshadri. So, it is the first time I am watching her performance in this film which is outstanding. She has displayed all the moods of her character in the film – from a hard-core feminist, a kind hearted daughter for her mother as well for those affected by the prejudice towards them in the society. Her best scene is the poignant moments in the film when she has to solve the issues arising out of a sudden appearance of real father. Madhuri Dikshit as a step sister of Meenakshi Seshadri has a light comical role which she performs very well. She has a lively presence in the film. Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore in the role of elderly couple look elegant. Dialogues by Rahi Masoom Reza is catchy.

Despite having good share of melodramatic contents, the film is not a tear-jerker. I found the film absorbing.

‘Swati’ (1986) had 5 songs none of which has been represented in the Blog. I present the first song from the film ‘shaadi mubaarak bole shehnaayi’ to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Alka Yagnik. The words are that of Anand Bakshi which are set to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It is a marriage song picturised on Meenakshi Seshadri and Madhuri Dixit on the occasion of the marriage of their parents Sharmila Tagore and Shashi Kapoor.

With this, ’Swati’ (1986) makes its debut on the Blog.

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 107 # Tribute to Sahir Ludhianvi #
——————————————————————————–

Today 25th October’2020 is the fortieth Remembrance Day of poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. He was born on 08th March’1921 and that will mark hundred years of his stepping out on this planet earth.

Sahir Ludhianvi left this mortal world on 25th October’1980 due to heart attack when he was playing cards with his friends.

Today remembering Sahir Ludhianvi and paying him a tribute on the blog I am presenting a song penned by him for the ‘1977-movie- Jaagriti’. As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie was first titled as ‘Ajab Teri Sarkar’ and even its song records were released by this title. I think that affected one song of the movie which was supposed to be in four parts, but now only one of its parts is available.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore.

Jayshree T and Helen make special appearances in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.03.1977.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs of this movie sung by Asha Bhonsle noted long back are ready with us, however I when I came across this song sung by Suman Kalyanpur I selected it for today’s presentation for ‘special’ reasons. It’s a song praising to almighty and sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

I hope you will like the song too.

With today’s song this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ makes its debut of the blog (and also join the same titles of movies released in ‘1949’ & ‘1954’. There was one more movie with the same title released in ‘1992’.

With the today’s movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ making its debut on the blog, all movies where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for movies released from 1971-1980 are now represented on the blog.

I think this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ must be an obscure movie of its time and may be not seen by many. I would request knowledgeable reader who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie, its songs and artists in the movie.

let us now listen to today’s song …

16/10/2020 – 72nd Birthday of Hema Malini
————————————————————-
So the dream girl is turning 7 & 2, 72. This same way we should make 2 & 2, 22. Right ? wrong, imdb is making “two and two make five”, in simple translation of the movie “Do aur do paanch”(1980). They have “Athiest” for “Nastik”, “The patriot” for “Deshpremi” and “Blind law” for ‘Andha Kanoon”. This is great going. But they go a step ahead and translate “Naseeb” as “Destiny and Fate”, whereas “Dard” is “Conflict of emotion”. I learnt today that ‘Trishul” is “Trident” and “Kasauti” is “Criterion” in English. Many of the 173 films listed in the filmography have been left alone, to dwell in their hindi/urdu quagmire. Some titles like ‘Shareef Badmash” ‘Sharafat” ‘Sholay” ‘Sachhe ka bolbalaa”, “ Ek chadar maili si”,”Jise tu qubool kar le” and ‘Maan Gaye ustaad” have been wisely given a wide berth.

But they can’t stop from falling into “Seven on seven” for “Satte pe satta”. And they failed to translate “Dharmatma” into “The Godfather” ?. They could have done worse and translated “Raziya Sultan” to “Emperor of Contentment”. I did tell Peevesie’s mom the other day, this translating of movie names business is a good exercise for the brain.

Let us go to the song and birthday girl now. The Wikpedia page on Hema Malini is here and is quite exhaustive. If I have to say something from my own “two paisa worth” opinion, Hema Malini was one courageous female artist, who being a public personality, chose to be Dharmendra’s second wife, rejecting other eligible bachelors such as Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra. About Dharmendra’s commitment, there is very filmy dialogue “ekbaar main ne commitment kar li, to phir main apne aap ki bhi nahi suntaa”. Bigger men and personalities have been found to have feet of clay, in similar situations.

The song I have chosen to present today is a much heard and seen song in “Chaayageet”. It was lying buried in the memory and as soon as I saw the title of the song it came back that it is a song where HemaMalini is playing “hide n seek” with kids in the garden. The kids in question are, Master Chintu, Master Raju, Master Alankar, Master Laddu, Padmini Kolhapure, Madhu Malini, Master chicoo, Bunty, Bobby etc. all child artist. The list is sourced from two different sources, so could be inaccurate. There is sad version also of the song, where these kids are singing and searching for Hema Malini.

This is the brief story line of the film, which stars, Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Asrani, Prem Chopra etc.:

Sapna, who works under a number of aliases, is a modern day female Robin Hood, who steals from whoever she can, so that she can maintain a home for orphans. One day she meets with wealthy and eligible bachelor, AnupamVerma, and poses as a wealthy princess. He takes her to meet his grandparents, and even lets her live in his palatial bunglow. But soon Sapna’s past catches up with her, when she is recognized as Champabai, a prostitute.

The creative team is the prolific Laxmikant-Pyarelal-AnandBakshi, with Lata Mangeshkar singing both versions with few un-credited kids voices and chorus.

Hullo Atuldom

13th October happens to be the death anniversary of an actress who has played mother to all Bollywood actors and some actresses too.
Nirupa Roy. She was often called the “Queen of Misery” as she has portrayed characters that are forever in sorrow and tragedy. There are many jokes about how she was a careless mother and has been separated from her children in film after film. She was permanent mother to Amitabh Bachchan in movies made in the 70s and she has played his foster mother even in “Lal Badshah” which came in 1999, think that was her last release too.

In the interim Dharam, Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra and Khanna Rishi Kapoor etc have also been the apple of her eye. She made her debut in 1946 in a Gujarati film “Ranakdevi”. The same year saw her act in a Hindi Movie- “Amar Raj” with Trilok Kapur as hero. She was routinely cast in mythologicals in the ’40s and ’50s and it is said that people used to visit her home to get her blessings. “Do Bigha Zameen” (1953) was an important film of her career where she played the wife of Balraj Sahni the farmer who loses his land to industrialization. In later years, she co-starred Balraj Sahni as mother to three school-going children in “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani” (1970) and a doting bhabhi to his brother Randhir Kapoor in “Jawaani Deewani” (1972). She was also the heroine to P.Jairaj, Ashok Kumar in many of the movies of the ’50s. In ’70s, when she began doing character roles she was still wife of Ashok Kumar or his bahu as in “Santaan” (1976) and “Anurodh” (1977).

Personally speaking I became aware of this mother only through “Deewar” (1975) and later “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977). Subsequently I have seen a lot of movies where she was sometimes ‘strict and sweet at other times’ mother and loved her smile.

Today we remember this sweet mom of Bollywood with a song that sees her wishing her ‘ungrateful’ son and his family all the best in life at the birthday party of her grandson. It is from “Santaaan” which had this famous song.

One other multipart song from this movie is present on the blog. I have given a brief about this movie in the comments of this song. Here is the penultimate song of the movie which had music by Laxmi-Pyare. Verma Malik was the lyricist. This song is sung by Asha Bhosle

meri dua hai sada
meri dua hai sada
rahe sukh se sansaar tera

Hullo Atuldom

“Coolie” was released on 2nd December 1983. It was produced by Ketan Desai and directed by Manmohan Desai. Kadar Khan was the script writer as also the dialogue writer. It starred Waheeda Rehman, Rati Agnihotri, Shoma Anand, Rishi Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Satyen Kappu, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Om Shivpuri, Nilu Phule, Ashalata (who passed away recently),and Shubha Khote, Amrish Puri and Mukri in guest appearances. Of course it had Manmohan Desai cast Amitabh Bachchan in the title role with an Eagle as his companion. The Eagle was called Allah Rakha in the movie.

The movie had Kadar Khan give some great dialogues to his characters, some of which were heavy duty and some were funny. For example Iqbal introduces himself with “Humaari taarif zara lambi hai. Bachpan se hain sar pe Allah ka haath aur Allahrakha hai apne saath. Baju pe 786 ka hai billa, 20 number ki bidi peeta hoon. kaam karta hoon coolie ka aur naam hai Iqbal”. He follows it up with “jiske sar pe pad jaaye haath bache na uska ek bhi baal” and that get smirks from the audience. Then during the course of a fight scene with Suresh Oberoi, Amitabh Bachchan picks up a Hammer and Sickle, holds it up in a particular fashion and mouths “Hum mazdooron ka seena lohe ki deewaar hai, aur yeh humaare hathyaar hain. Yeh humara pet paal bhi sakte hain aur tum jaison ka pet phaad bhi sakte hain”.

“Coolie” was a movie that was slammed by the critics as the worst ever etc. but was lapped up by the paying public. It has attained cult status over the years. Puneet Issar was just a villains’ henchman when he was signed for the movie but the fight sequence in which AB was hurt made Puneet Issar famous. And the smart Manmohan Desai froze the scene in the final cut of the movie and a message appears on screen marking it as the shot when AB was injured. Apparently this was done at Amitabh’s behest. That was the kind of relation that AB shared with Manji (as Mamohan Desai was called by his friends).

One thing was on display in 1982. The level of love that the public had for the actor by the name Amitabh Bachchan. When he lay comatose in a Bombay Hospital, a whole nation prayed for him. There were reports of how people made promises to their respective gods and even fulfilled them when he recovered and restarted work on 7th January 1983. It proved that the struggle that he had on the way to superstardom had borne fruit.

Just another matter that he was a good actor who made the incredible seem normal, like fighting a leopard, tiger and a crocodile at times, with bare hands (he was not the first one to do this onscreen) in “Khoon Pasina” and some other movies. He made it seem normal that a roadside orphan could grow up to be a well to-do do-gooder who is even benevolent on the man who insulted him when he was in his teens- remember “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”. He mastered rhythm and could move a leg to music without making a fool of himself. He was appreciated when he tried to sing in his tuneless style to begin with and he has sung around 20-30 songs in his career that started in 1969. Of course he has recited poems in “Kabhi Kabhi” and “Silsila”.

He has had a wide range of roles post 2000 when he switched tracks to play characters that are appropriate to his age. He has co-starred with heroes who are his children’s age group. He is one of the actors of that generation who still has movie-makers seek him with specific roles & movies. The other was Rishi Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan have acted together in a number of movies first time being in “Kabhi Kabhi” 1976. Their first successes also came in the same year-1973. Rishi Kapoor’s “Bobby” and Amitabh Bachchan’s “Zanjeer”. The two were long time friends and the last time they collaborated was in “102 not out” in 2018.

This jodi has been my personal favourite from the first time I saw them. And it is but natural that I present this song of “Coolie”. It shows the two actors’ comic side. The two of them are not eyeing the same girl. Their target is the prize money that the girl’s father Mukri promises for bringing the girl back home. She has this penchant for running away from home and is in cahoots with Sunny (Rishi) who dons a new getup every time he drops her home. Only this time Iqbal has also spotted the girl and decides to drop her home and claim the prize money.

What I like about the song is the various outfits and wigs that AB and Chintu use. The detailing that has gone into draping Chintu with a dhoti that has extra width to cover the stilts when he is trying to compete with the elephant’s height. And also the pronounced jerks that AB and Shoma Anand experience when on the elephant which at first feels that they are having a camel ride.

This song is in the voices of Shailendra Singh and Shabbir Kumar. This movie was the first time AB had a different voice.
All in all a fun song to celebrate the 78th birthday of the superstar of the millennium who has also been given the epithet BigB.

11/10/2020 – 78th Birthday of Amitabh Bachchan
———————————————————————-

A few days ago I saw this whatapp forward video, where a few Africans were singing this hindi song “rote rote hansnaa seekho hanste hanste rona”. This song is a known song, often heard on radio, but not recently seen or heard.

I knew it was a song sung on screen by Amitabh Bachchan. I checked the blog, to find it was not posted. This is a well-known song from 1983 film “Andhaa Kanoon”, where Amitabh Bachchan’s role was supposedly a guest appearance. Getting the lyrics of this song was a breeze, as I knew the lyrics and lines of stanza’s.

This song is a multiple version song with Kishore Kumar happy version, Kishore Kumar sad version and Baby Rajeshwari sad version. I was not able to find the audio/video of sad version by Baby Rejeshwari. Music and lyrics are Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi, respectively.

Trivia about the film:

1.This film was a remake of the hit Tamil movie “Sattam Oru Iruttarai” (1981) starring Vijayakanth. The Tamil film was also remade in Telugu as “Chattaniki Kallu Levu” (1981), in Malayalam as “Maattuvin Chattangale” (1982) and in Kannada as “Nyaya Ellide” (1982). It was also remade in Tamil with the same title in 2012.

2.Rajinikanth made his Hindi film debut in this film.

3.The villains in this film, played by Prem Chopra, Danny Denzongpa and Pran, were named Amar, Akbar and Anthony after the film “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977).

4.Amitabh Bachchan’s character in this film was named after the poet and lyricist Jan Nisar Akhtar.

5.Amitabh Bachchan had signed this film for a guest appearance. However, as the film’s shooting progressed his role was increased till it became an important supporting role.

Songs already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Ye andhaa kaanoon hai 11 October 2010
Meri behna deewaani hai 13 August 2011

That’s a typical of Amitabh Bachchan guest appearance where he is getting to sing the title song as well as a multipurpose song. It is not clear why his character in the movie was named after Jan Nisar Akhtar.

There are many names to given to Amitabh, like Big B, Shehenshah, Angry young man and star of the millennium. Big B would be the based on this stature of being a superlative performer and his authoritative voice plus the physical presence of screen. Shehenshah, is the title of 1988 film directed by Tinnu Anand, whose story is credited to Jaya Bachchan. The angry young man was the creation of Saim-Javed duo of script writers. Star of the millennium is a bit tricky, as millennium is period of thousand years. So starting in 1969, he has less than 30 odd years of stardom in the millennia of 1000-2000 and next millennia is now 20 years old. So technically this superstar is riding in a millennia to the next. Not that it matters to me as such, but things like titles also need to be logical. However unfashionable it might be.

Amitabh Bachchan is singing this song to stop his daughter from crying. His wife is played by Madhavi, who is also present in the song. Judging from the sad version, tragedy strikes the happy family, so this song is likely in flashback.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 104# Qeemat-1973 (Happy Birthday – Rekha) #
—————————————- ————————————————–

On the blog, other than sharing songs and posts for special occasions we also simultaneously work on ‘different projects’ from time to time. One of the projects that I have taken up is to introduce ‘movies having same titles’ on the blog.
We also combine launching of new ‘movie’ with special occasions like anniversaries of artists, actors, actresses etc.

Today I am presenting a song from the 1973 movie ‘Qeemat’. We already have a movie titled ‘Qeemat-1946’ on the blog and all its songs have also been covered on the blog.

Movies with the title ‘Qeemat’ (or ‘Keemat’) were also made in the year 1956 and later on recently in 1998.
However, I guess that the songs of the ‘Qeemat-1956’ are difficult to find and may be not available as of now.

Coming back to today’s movie and its song, the song is from ‘Qeemat-1973’ and it is picturised on lead pair of Dharmendra and Rekha of this movie.

Today 10th October is sixty-sixth birth anniversary (born on 10th October’1954) of Bhanurekha Ganeshan or Rekha as we fondly know her. So, today we wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Today’s song is from a movie of ‘1973’ i.e. a movie released almost forty-seven years back. Let us have a look on how this year was for Rekha and the movies she appeared on screen in this year;

SNo Movie Title Date Passed by Censor Board Director Co-Star
01 Anokhi Adaa 03.04.1973 Kundan Kumar Jeetendra
02 Barkhaa Bahaar 15.10.1973 Amar Kumar Navin Nischol
03 Dharmaa 23.11.1973 Chaand Navin Nischol
04 Double Cross 25.10.1973 Gogi Anand Vijay Anand
05 Kahaani Qismat Ki 19.12.1973 Arjun Hingorani Dharmendra
06 Kashamkash 21.11.1973 Feroz Chinoy Feroz Khan
07 Khoon Khoon* 02.06.1973 Mohammad Hussain
08 Namak Haraam 19.11.1973 Hrishikesh Mukherjee Rajesh Khanna
09 Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye 29.12.1973 Ali Raza Sunil Dutt
10 Qeemat 29.06.1973 Ravi Nagaich Dharmendra

*(as ‘Special appearance’)

We can see from the above details that she was paired with Dharmendra in ‘Qeemat’ and ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’. ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’ was one of the super-hit movies of that year.

I am not aware of the today’s movie ‘Qeemat’. I guess it was flop and forgotten movie.
I had watched this movie ‘Keemat-1973’ in 1985-1988 during my stay Parli-Vaijnath and I had earlier mentioned the same in my post here .

I do not remember the story of the movie now, nor do I remember how I felt about the moview back then. This movie was an action packed ‘spy thriller’ movie.

Dharmendra was known as ‘he-man’ those days. Considered the most suitable hero for ‘action packed’ movies, he was in the lead role in this movie along with Rekha, Prem Chopra and others.

1973 was a significant year in Dharmendra’s career as many of his movies released during 1973 were ‘super-hits’ and his roles in these movies were well appreciated.

The year preceding ‘1973’ and succeeding it were also successful years in his film career.
He was nominated for the ‘best actor’ ‘Filmfare award’ for ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat-1973’, however he did not win it.

Here let us have a look at the movies starring Dharmendra released in the year 1973 (in alphabetical order):

SNo Movie Title Date Passed by Censor Board Director Co-Star
01 Blackmail 28.11.1973 Vijay Anand Rakhi
02 Jheel Ke Us Paar 28.08.1973 Bhappi Soni Mumtaz
03 Jugnu 28.07.1973 Pramod Chakravarty Hema Malini
04 Jwaar Bhaataa 16.10.1973 A. Subbarao Saira Banu
05 Kahaani Qismat Ki 19.12.1973 Arjun Hingorani Rekha
06 Loafer 12.03.1973 A. Bhim Singh Mumtaz
07 Phaagun* 08.06.1973 Rajinder Singh Bedi Waheeda Rehman
08 Qeemat 29.06.1973 Ravi Nagaich Rekha
09 Yaadon Ki Baarat 05.10.1973 Nasir Hussain


*(as ‘Special appearance’)

‘Qeemat-1973’ or ‘Keemat-1973’was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti Internationals, Madras’. Ravi Nagaich had also done the photography of this movie. It was produced by P. Mallikharjuna Rao.

It had Dharmendra, Rekha, Prem Chopra, Rajendra Nath, Aagha, Satyen Kappu, Maruti, Murad, Puranik, J.N. Anand, Prem Kumar, Kirti Kumar, Subhash, Suhail, Arjun Kumar, Shabnam, Indira Bansal, Halam, Kalam, Munni, Rani, with Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Ranjeet.

K.N. Singh and Jayadev make a friendly appearance in this movie.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwamitra Adil while the story idea was by Ramjee. V.D. Puranik was the dialogue director for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by N.S. Prakasam.

This movie had total six songs composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. The lyrics for all the six songs were written by Anand Bakshi.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. (The titles of this movie mentioned the name of Ajit Singh in the list of singers, however HFGK Vol V doesn’t mentioned his voice in the songs of this movie in the list on the movie page of this movie).

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. I guess this song would have been the only somewhat ‘known song’ from this movie. Because I remember to have listened to it in my childhood years on the radios and so when I watched the movie in 1987-88, I remember to have heard it earlier.
However, this and other songs of this movie seem to be all forgotten because in the recent years also I have recollections of listening to them on radio.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

‘Qeemat-1973’ was passed by Censor Board on 29.06.1973 under ‘restricted viewing’ (A) certificate.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra and Rekha where Dharmendra in his ‘own’ style is requesting Rekha to forgive him 😊

Let us now listen to this song…!!!

With this song ‘Qeemat-1973’ makes its debut on the blog. 🙂

10/10/2020 – 66th birthday of Rekha
——————————————————-

Today it is the birthday of Rekha, full name Bhanurekha Ganeshan. Some do refer to her as indian “Greta Garbo” for being elusive. However in this era of snooping social media and swooping television media, if someone of her status and lifetime experiences, wants to be a recluse, thumbs up to her. In her time she has been called “Jane Fonda” of India as well for her efforts to resurrect herself as the style icon of the industry. She is remembered for her many memorable characters enacted on the screen.

Back in the 80’s, we the impressionable teenagers, used to hang on to her photos and interviews in magazines. The new generation hasn’t heard of magazines, and google will probably say ‘bullets’, the ones needed to put in the guns, so they can fire. I know about my children, they haven’t experienced the passion and craze for magazines like we did, be it film, sports, politics or finance. I can report that I have spent my hard earned money on all the categories, fortnightly, monthly and weekly.

Yes, back to Rekha and magazine covers. I recall her on one such cover holding the black lady in her hand. Now that I checked, she has 4 filmfare awards of best actress for Khoobsurat & Khoon Bhari Maang, supporting actress in Khilaadiyon ke Khilaadi and last Life time achievement award in 2003. The “K” factor seems to have worked well for her. She used to appear in all the Filmfare award functions as the style icon, often wearing the hyderabadi “Khada dupatta” in its different avatars.

This is the Wikipedia pageWikipedia page on Rekha for more information about her. As per imdb site she has worked in 190 films between 1966 & 2018, having started as a child artist.

The song I have chosen to post today is ‘Raaste pyar ke” 1982, where she was a part of a love triangle with Shabana Azmi and Jeetendra. The gist of the story is Shabana and Rekha are best friends and they both fall in love with Jeetendra. Rekha decides to sacrifice her love for her friend, but then Shabana also finds out about the sacrificial intentions of Rekha and takes measures so that she falls sick and dies in the end, I am not sure. The measure is not a suicide attempt, but eating a lot of ‘green challis”. Jeetenda has not much say in these proceedings.

One song from the film is already posted.

The song under discussion is a nice solo by Lata Mangeshkar, also the title song. The team of Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi do a job in this situational song.

Song-Tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe raaste pyaar ke (Raaste Pyaar Ke)(1982) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Mit gayeen hazaaron jawaaniyan
mit gayeen hazaaron jawaniyan
deni padi jinhen qurbaniyan
jinhe qurbaniyan
yaad aati hain unn ki kahaaniyan
kahaaniyan
zindagi ne jinhe
chhoda maar ke
maar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke ae
raaste pyaar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke
kya pataa kaun kab kahaan
baitth jaaye thhak haar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke

zakhmon ke nishaan silte nahin
silte nahin
zakhmon ke nishaan silte nahin
yaadon ke chaman khilte nahin
bichhde to phir kahin milte nahin
do panchhi kabhi ik daar ke ae
ik daar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke

faisla ye hamen manzoor hai
faisla ye hamen manzoor hai
faasla ye hamen manzoor hai
apni manzil bahot hi door hai
bahot hi door hai
ruk gaye ham kisi ko pukaar ke ae
pukaar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke ae
raaste pyaar ke

iss muhobbat ke qaabil ham nahin
iss muhobbat ke qaabil ham nahin
ham nahin
ham ko apnaa zara bhi gham nahin
koyi khush ho khushi yeh kam nahin
ham chale raat gham ki guzaar ke
guzaar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke
kya pataa kaun kab kahaan
baithh jaaye thak haar ke
thhak haar ke ae
thhak haar ke

06/10/2020 – 74th birth anniversary of Vinod Khanna
——————————————————————————-

This duet song by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhonsle is one more song from the 80’s and radio days. This remained in the memory as a very good song from the film ‘Insaan” 1982, starring Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra and Reena Roy. I looked up this song again a few days ago for including in the Rafi series, as there are no duets in the series. But I am not including it there, instead posting it as a anniversary post for Vinod Khanna. The song is sung on screen by Vinod Khanna and Reena Roy.

This is the trivia I found about the song, inadvertently.
“Saathiya Tu Mere Sapnon Ka Meet Hai – This song was based on the 1977 British hit “Angelo” by the pop band Brotherhood of Man.”

I was not looking to add to the short series of inspired/copied songs. But since this falls in the category it is added in the series as the 5th song. There is only one more song in the series, barring any more inadvertent incidents.

Seeing the filmography of Vinod Khanna, his career started with films “Man ka Meet” and “Nateeja” in 1969. He graduated from bit roles to villan’s role in “Aan Milo Sajana” and small character in Manoj Kumar’s “Purab Paschhim” in 1970. Then came some of those critically acclaimed films like “Reshma aur Shera”, “Mere Apne” in 1971. He was noticed in both these films, especially “Mere Apne” with the main hero there. In “Mera Gaon Mera desh”(1971), he enacted the role of villain “Jabbar Singh”, which was later rehashed in “Sholay” as “Gabbar Singh”.

In “Achaanak” (1973), a movie directed by Gulzar he played an army officer, where he kills his wife and friend, using the methods learnt in training for killing the enemies, than uses the same training to evade arrest. I have seen this movie on TV, but don’t remember how it ends. He gets medals and accolades for same thing in a war, and a conviction for killing his unfaithful wife and deceitful friend. The dilemma was the basis of the film’s story. This is also a once seen, never forgotten sort of film. I would call it the most important film of Vinod Khanna’s film career.

The year 1974 brings more important films like “Imtehaan” and ‘Haathh ki safai”. Major hits start with multi-starrer “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977), many more films later. Somewhere along the way, Vinod Khanna seems to have been typecast in the role of Daaku in many films, even as a hero.

Come 1980 and there were not so hit “The Burning Train” and super hit “Qurbani”. Feroz Khan’s “Qurbani”, had Vinod Khanna in the meaty title role, the one doing sacrifice.

I almost missed “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” (1978), as it is absent in the list of films at imdb. A few more multi starrters like “Kudrat”(1981) and “Rajput”(1982) later he was still short of a superstar status. Then came the Osho twist in the story and he left everything to join the aashram. He was out of the industry for almost 5 years. He made a very impressive comeback in 1987 with excellent hero oriented films like “Insaaf” and “Satyamev Jayate”. He continued working in many films for three decades till his death in 2017.

He had a stint in politics too like Amitabh Bachchan, was an MP from Punjab.

Some film buffs and Vinod Khanna fans contend that had he not got involved in “Osho” and left the industry at a crucial juncture, his career graph would have been very different. These are of course conjectures, and we will never know what could have been.

So here is the song from “Insaan”, composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and written by Anand Bakshi, as a tribute to Vinod Khanna on his 74th birth anniversary.
