Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this post which again is coming after a ‘long gap’ in this series. Well, I hope to conclude this series too at the earliest possible 🙂 .

In this tenth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna – the Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1983. This was the year of Rajesh Khanna. He was back on the top with a bang. I don’t know if I should say this that he was reinstated as the ‘King of Bollywood’ once again.

The successes of the movies ‘Avtaar’, ‘Sautan’, and to an extent of the movie ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’ brought Kaka back into the limelight again. Another movie ‘Nishaan’ starring Kaka which was also released during this year 1983 also performed well at the box-office. Though he had delivered some versatile performances and kept doing different roles during the period 1975 to 1978 he was still far away from that level of success which he had tasted before.

He finally got a big boost in 1983 after his continued good performances, critically acclaimed performances and some commercially hit performances in the previous years i.e. from 1979 to 1982. Hit movies like ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodisi Bewafaai’ (1980); critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose’ (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980); successful movies like ‘Bandish’ in 1980; and then multi-starrer hits like ‘Qudrat’ in 1981, and ‘Raajput’, ‘Ashaanti’, and ‘Dharam Kaanta’ in 1982 had finally paid off. With two back-to-back hits – ‘Avtaar’ and ‘Sautan’, where Kaka was the main lead and a semi-hit like ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’, brought a new life to Kaka’s filmi career or his ‘second innings’ as it is generally said.

In the year 1983 the following five movies of Rajesh Khanna were released. Although the movie ‘Baabu’ was passed by Censor Board in 1983, I remember it was released in theaters in 1985. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

Sl. No. Movie Title Director Censor Date
01 Agar Tum Na Hote Lekh Tandon 27.10.1983
02 Avtaar Mohan Kumar 27.01.1983
03 Baabu^ A.C. Trilokchander 01.11.1983
04 Nishaan Surendra Mohan 06.01.1983
05 Sautan Sawan Kumar 24.05.1983

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Avtaar’. And since this year 1983 was a special year for Kaka, I would like to present more posts covering songs from this year. Let us see how it works.

‘Avtaar’ made its debut on the blog on 27.08.2012 with this song “Ho Ooperwaale Tera Jawaab Nahin” and I would like to quote below what Atul ji had written about this movie of Rajesh Khanna.

“Avtaar” (1983) was a movie of Rajesh Khanna during the second innings of his acting career when he was no longer a superstar. The movies in which Rajesh Khanna acted during this phase won critical acclaim though even if Rajesh Khanna came nowhere close to regaining his lost crown.

 

‘Avtaar’ was produced and directed by Mohan Kumar for his home productions Emkay Enterprises. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sachin, AK Hangal, Sujit Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Madhu Malini, Yunus Parvez, Shashi Puri, Gulshan Grover, Pichoo Kapoor, Ranjan Grewal, Preeti Sapru and others. Madan Puri had a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kumar and Mushtaq Jalili. Screenplay of this movies was written by Mohan Kumar and dialogues were written by Mushtaq Jalili. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Bhatt. It was passed by Censor Board on 27.01.1983. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that this film was re-certified with English sub-titles by Censor Board on 06.05.1983.

The movie has five songs (including one two-part song) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. This is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Alka Yagnik, and Mahendra Kapoor. This song is picturized on Shashi Puri-Preeti Sapru, Gulshan Grover-Rajni Sharma. Both couples are lip syncing the voices of Suresh Wadkar and Alka Yagnik. Mahendra Kapoor’s voice is used for background score where we can see Rajesh Khanna working hard in his own garage and preparing himself for a greater challenge.

In the movie this song happens when Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi have left their home as their sons have betrayed them. Sachin (Sewak) accompanies them and arranges a temporary shelter for them. Not only this, after listening the conversation between his master and bibi ji he understands what his master needs. He then donates his blood and from the money for the blood, he buys aujaar (tools) for his master so that he can start his own garage. Rajesh Khanna has an uphill task from here to turn the fortunes while his sons are enjoying with their friends. That is where this song takes place, and we have some meaningful lyrics to listen.

That was all around forty years back now.

And if we go back fifty years i.e. to the year 1973 we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

Hullo Atuldom

“Arpan” (1983) was produced and directed by J. Om Prakash who passed away exactly a year and month ago on 7th August 2019. His movies had titles mostly starting with an “A”, for example “Aap Ki Kasam”, Aakraman”, “Aaye Din Bahaar Ke”, “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” etc. He was the presenter of two Rajesh Khanna starrers “Raja Rani” & “Aan Milo Sajna” both produced by Jagdish Kumar and director of the first-ever movie that his son-in-law Rakesh Roshan produced “Bhagwan Dada”. He was also the producer of “Aandhi”.

He began his career as a producer with “Aas Ka Panchhi” through his production house Filmyug in 1961 and followed it up with “Ayee MIlan Ki Bela” “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” “Aankhon Aakhon Mein” etc turning director with “Aap Ki Kasam”. He was a clerk in a film distributors office in Lahore and ended up being a manager there before coming to Bombay post Partition of India.

He had a keen ear for good music that were lyrical and melodious. Of course his movies were mostly romantic and filled with family-emotions and values. At least that is what I remember from what I have seen in his films of the ’80s. He was associated with 23 movies from the ’60s to his last released in 2001- a Rahul Roy starrer called “Afsana Dilwalon Ka” post which he retired. Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors of 12 of these movies .

The coming together of this triumvirate gave us ‘Suno Sajna Papihe ne’, ‘Saathiya Nahi Jaana’, ‘Achha toh hum chalte hain’, ‘Aadmi Musafir hain’, ‘Fauji gaya jab gaon mein’ etc etc. But if I am asked to choose songs that this association gave and make my playlist it will include ‘Palat meri jaan tere kurbaan’, ‘Yeh mausam aaya hain’, ‘Badra chhaye ke jhoolein pad gaye’, and some not-so-popular ones like ‘Somwaar ko hum mile’, ‘I am in love you are in love’, some soulful numbers like ‘Mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse’, ‘Yeh shama toh jali roshni ke liye’ and suddenly I will find enough songs to play for almost half a day and more. I notice that in mentioning songs that I like I haven’t touched a single movie of the ’80s like ‘Aas Paas’, ‘Arpan’, ‘Aasha’, ‘Apna Bana Lo’ etc.; these movies would feature as whole albums on my list.

So coming back to “Arpan”, I find that it is one-song away from Yyiippeeeehood. That is the reason to choose a song from that film to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma on his 80th birthday. Of late he has been making appearances on some television channels as guest-of-honour to judge music contests. And that gives us, his fans, opportunities to hear anecdotes of his long musical career that began when he was around 12 years old. He was the son of trumpeter Ramprasad Sharma who was his first guru. He began learning to play the violin from the age of 8 and was further coached by the Goan musician Anthony Gonsalves and it is believed that “My name is Anthony Gonsalves” from Manmohan Desai’s ‘Amar Akbar Anthony” was the music duo’s way of acknowledging the tutor.

Pyarelal’s brothers were also musicians and his brother Gorakh Sharma was an expert at string instruments like Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Rubaab, Electric Guitar and had the opportunity to play in the song ‘Chaudvin Ka Chaand’ under Ravi’s music direction. Pyarelal’s other brothers Ganesh, Anand and others were all into music and Ganesh was a music director for movies made in the late ’60s through the ’70s.

“Arpan” may have been a movie which many followers of this blog would have given a miss thinking that it was Produced in Madras as that was the period when Jeetendra was deep into acting in films made by production houses of Madras and Hyderabad. Also the general story-line of the movie gives us that impression.

The movie was essentially a tearjerker where Reena Roy played Jeetendra’s fiance, who is forced to marry her boss Raj Babbar as punishment for having slapped him in the office and not allowing him to molest her etc. To further his intention, he kidnaps Jeetendra’s sister’s (Preeti Sapru) boyfriend (Shashi Puri) and keeps him captive till Reena agrees and marries him. This makes her a ‘bad character’ in the eyes of Jeetu’s mom (Dina Pathak) but only Jeetu’s friend (Sujit Kumar), sister and jija know the real reason for Reena’s marriage to Raj Babbar. The movie moves forward with Jeetu meeting Parveen Babi, marrying her, getting her pregnant etc. Then he happens to stumble upon Reena’s reason of marrying Raj post which there is misunderstanding with his wife, Reena becoming a widow, Parveen Babi loosing her baby so on and so forth. That is why I said that this was a tearjerker. Essentially a movie full of calamities for the heroine and it comes to an end with Reena consuming poison, making her way to Jeetu’s home and handing over her baby to Parveen Babi. Ultimate qurbaani so that her ex-lover can live happily ever-after.

Today’s song is a duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, written by Anand Bakshi (who else) and on-screen couple are Preeti Sapru and Shashi Pur.

Wishing Pyarelalji(DoB 3 September 1940) a very Happy Birthday.

sajan sajani ka ghoongat kholenge ae
do nainon ke prem taraazu mein preetam ko tolenge

dekhenge chup chaap tumhein hum
sharm se kuchh na bolenge
yeh chup rehne ka waada
bhool na jaana rakhna yaad

teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubarakbaad

aakhir yeh taqdeer humaari
kab tak humse roothhegi ee
aakhir yeh taqdeer humaari
kab tak humse roothhegi ee
oonchi oonchi duniya ki
deewaar giregi tootegi ee
chori chori milne se phir r
jaan humaari chhootegi
iss badnaami ke darr se ae
hum ho jaayenge aazaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

uske baad
maine poochha uske baad

kya shaadi ke baad bhi saajan
aise geet sunaayenge ae
kya shaadi ke baad bhi saajan
aise geet sunaayenge ae
ya chhup baithhe door se sajni
ke mann ko tadpaayenge ae
sajni saajan se phir hum
miyaan biwi ban jaayenge
teri god mein munna hoga
mere honthon pe fariyaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad
