Hullo Atuldom

“Qatl”, produced and directed by R K Nayyar released in 1986, was a crime story adapted from the American TV movie ‘In Broad Daylight’ (1971). It was one of the first releases of Sanjeev Kumar’s after his passing. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Rajinder Krishan (4) and Anand Bakshi (1). The playback singers used were Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Anup Jalota and Kavitha Krishnamurthy. The cast was Sarika, Ranjeeta, Plioo Wadia, Sanjeev Kumar, Marc Zuber, Shatrughan Sinha and Ashok Kumar.

The story revolved around fidelity, loyalty. It was the story of romance between an actor-director (Rakesh-Sanjeev Kumar) and his heroine (Rohini-Sarika). Just that the heroine is in love with her producer and theatre owner (Ranjeet-Marc Zuber) too. Sanjeev Kumar marries Sarika, and one day at a rehearsal there is a freak accident and Rakesh looses his sight in saving Rohini. The blind Rakesh learns to cope with life and blindness with the aide of his nurse (Sita -Ranjeeta) appointed by Rohini so that she can resume theatre. During one of the reheasals, the blind Rakesh discovers Rohini and Ranjeet’s secret meetings and their affair and is heartbroken. That is when today’s song happens.

One song from the movie has been posted. We are having the next song to remember our dear Harihar Jethalal Jariwala a.k.a Sanjeev Kumar a.k.a Thakur Baldev Singh on his 83rd birth anniversary. He was such a versatile actor that he played a young lover to his heroines as well as their father/ father-in-law as he did with Jaya Bhaduri and Sharmila Tagore. But of course he had most of the heroines of the 70s and 80s as his leading lady be it Mumtaz, Waheeda Rehman, Rakhee, Hema, Rekha, Moushumi etc; even Zeenat Aman played his romantic interest in a movie or two. He had the opportunity to enact nine different characters in “Naya Din Nayi Raat”. He had great comic timing and “Angoor” directed by Gulzar was the best example of it. He was a two time National Best Actor Award winner viz. : 1971 for “Dastak” and 1973 for “Koshish”. He was nominated for 14 Filmfare Awards -thrice as Best Supporting actor and the rest for Best Actor. He won the award thrice – for “Shikar” (supporting actor 1969) and “Aandhi” and “Arjun Pandit'” (best actor 1976, 1977).

Here is wishing that this talented actor was still among us. 🙏

Song-Kahaan jaa rahaa thha kahaan aa gaya hoon (Qatl)(1986) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kahaan jaa raha thha
kahaan aa gaya hoon
kahaan jaa raha thha
kahaan aa gaya hoon
na mujhko pata hai
na dil ko khabar hai
koi ibtida na
koi intahaa hai
safar ye mohabbat ka kaisa safar hai
kahaan jaa raha thha
kahaan aa gaya hoon
kahaan jaa raha thha

woh rangeen naghma kahaan kho gaya hai
woh rangeen naghma kahaan kho gaya hai
mera saaz khaamosh kyon ho gaya hai
woh jazbaa jo mushkil se maine jagaaya
woh phir jaagte jaagte so gaya hai
na jhonka hawa ka na pehli si khushboo
ye phoolon ki basti ya kaanton ka ghar hai
kahaan jaa raha thha
kahaan aa gaya hoon
kahaan jaa raha thha

woh jis ke liye ye andhere khareede
woh jis ke liye ye andhere khareede
ujaale ki keemat bhi uss ko bata doon
kabhi zindagi ki dua di thhi jisko
usey bewafai ki kyun na sazaa doon
usse bewafai ki kya main sazaa doon
sazaa doon
sazaa doon
yahaan se na aane na jaane ka rasta
magar qatl ke vaaste rah-guzar hai
magar qatl ke vaaste rah-guzar hai
magar qatl ke vaaste rah-guzar hai
magar qatl ke vaaste ae ae ae
rah-guzar hai

Hullo Atuldom

Who is a dainty person?

Dainty is an adjective. If you describe a movement, person, or object as dainty, you mean that they are small, delicate, and pretty.

There is this actress from my growing up years who was very Dainty. Petite is another word that could be used to describe her. Not only was she loved by the audiences she was also a favourite of all her co-stars. Sanjeev Kumar would treat her like a child (as admitted by this actress in an interview) possibly an after effect of their first movie together where he played her father. Even though after that they went on to co-star in many movies and enacting a whole gamut of relations. Rishi Kapoor and Mithun were friends of hers and she has co-starred opposite Vinod Khanna in her younger days and also played mother roles to his sons in movies of the new millennium. She has paired opposite Amitabh Bachchan in 2 films in the ’70s and was seen in a brief role in a Bachchan starrer in 2015. She was often heroine to Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Shashi Kapoor and was also comfortable sharing her heroes and screen space with actresses of her time be it Rekha, Shabana, even Sridevi. She has said that Dharmendra, who was her father-in-law’s (Hemant Kumar) friend, used to be very protective. Who wouldn’t be considering how dainty or petite or small she looked in comparison to half her heroes.

When I think back, I find that I remember many of her songs and used to like all of them. “Sun ri pawan, pawan purvaiyya”; “neend churaaye, chain churaaye”; “chhatri na khol udd jaayegi”; “tera saath hai toh mujhe kya kami hai”; “megha re megha re mat pardes jaa re”; “zindagi ek naatak hai”- all of them and some more, are on my list of personal favourites.

Oh I didn’t say who I was speaking of. Indira Chattopadhaya is our birthday girl today. She is called Moushumi Chatterjee in the film industry. She has been entertaining audiences since her debut in Bengali films in 1967. Her Hindi debut happened in 1972 with “Anuraag” where she played a blind girl opposite Vinod Mehra. She was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by Filmfare in 2015.

“Itni Si Baat” ( 1981) was a movie directed by Madhu M. (possibly the only Hindi movie by him) and produced by K. Raghavan (not heard this name too). Kalyanji- Anandji were the music directors with Viju Shah, Babla, Anil Mohile as assistants; and Anjaan was the lyricist. Asha Bhonsle, Alka Yagnik, Hemlatha, Amit Kumar and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers (as per the titles of the movie) It had Sanjeev Kumar- Moushumi Chatterjee heading a cast of Tamanna, Arun Govil, Urmila Bhatt, Asit Sen, Roopesh Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Baby Geetha, Master Gautam, Aashoo, Kesho Rana, Pardesi etc. Madan Puri and Om Prakash were in guest appearances.

I have seen this movie a few times on television and like its story. It is basically a story about a couple who are leading a harmonious monetarily comfortable life till they become parents. Then the wife starts feeling that things will ease up if she too takes up a job but the husband feels that is unnecessary. Also he has a feeling that she can help by being a little thrifty around the house and that would be help enough. To prove their points the couple switch duties and the wife finds a job and the husband starts looking after the house. They agree to experiment on this for a short period. What follows is chaos for the husband at home and wife at work and some hilarious moments. The movie comes to a close with the two realizing जिसका काम उसी को साजे और करे तो बुद्धु / डंडा/ ठेंगा बाजे’ “jiska kaam usiko saajhe, aur kare toh buddhu/ danda/ thenga baaje” (roughly translating to “every person is an expert in his own field”). Of course I don’t recall what happened to their monetary issue. 🙂

Today’s song happens at the beginning of the movie when Raja (Sanjeev Kumar) and Asha (Moushumi) have just expressed their love to each other. The song sung by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal, runs through titles of the movie showing courtship, marriage and start of the family.

Here is wishing our cute Moushumi a very Happy birthday.

Lyrics

Arre dheere dheere

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog so far. Lata Mangeshkar has sung in four of these songs. One song from the movie (which had Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in it) has been covered in the past.

Here is a Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Agni Rekha”(1973). This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on a lady who could be the leading lady of the movie, viz Sharda. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can see Sanjeebv Kumar among the audience.

This is a song that I had heard during its days ithout being aware of its details. The song subsequently got forgotten ith time. This song is undoubtedly a forgotten gem.

Lyrics

Tumhaari prem gagariya hai bhaari

Blog Day :

4616 Post No. : 16257

It is difficult for me to tell what I was doing during various dates of years gone by, seeing that I do not keep any diary. Diary writing used to be a great hobby of people of past generations. Now a days even the habit of writing with pen on paper has largely gone into disuse, and therefore going back don memor lane and giving accurate personal reminiscences has become difficult.

However, there are some ways. For example, I can go back say ten years and see the posts that I hame that day. From those posts, I can sometimes tell what I as doing that day in distant past.

I thought of going down the memory lane by exactly ten years to see if I can get a Blog Ten Year Challenge article written today. I found that on this day ten years ago, I had posted four writeups from four different movies. I found that one movie was still unYIPPEED.

Elated, I began to prepare my writeup. But when I checked up the links of the songs posted ten years ago, I realised that I had erred and that all the movies whose songs were discussed ten years ago on this day ere already YIPPEED. Instead of looking at the posts of 10 years ago, I had looked at the posts of 11 years ago, viz 8 March 2010.

So be it. So this article is not a Blog ten year challenge. It is an eleven year challenge, though.

The movie is “Chowkidaar”(1974). “Chowkidaar”(1974) was directed by Shyam Ralhan for Namrata Movies, Bombay. This “social” movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Yogita Bali, Vinod Khanna, Om Prakash, Jeevan, Sulochana, Sapru, Randheer, Zeb Rehman, Jayshree T, Asit Sen, Lalita Kumari, Ram Mohan, Joginder, Amrita Patel, Narmada Shankar, Uma Dhawan, Daljeet, Vimla, Dhanraj, Tilakraj, Babu Bhai, Kapila Sharma, Zebunnissa, Rajrani, Maqbool, Master Pramod, Vaishali (guest appearance) etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. The movie made its debut in the blog on this date ten years ago.
Here are the details of the songs covered so far:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting
2337 Ye duniya nahin jaagir kisi ki 8 March 2010
5738 Rehne do chanda badli mein 5 April 2012
5745 Thhoda sa aitbaar keejiye 6 April 2012
11235 Insaanon se kyun jhukte ho…zindagi zindagi 1 July 2015
14302 Chaloon main jidhar se 25 April 2018

The movie “Chowkidaar”(1974) had made its debut in the blog on this day eleven years ago.

When I think about this date 11 years ago, I cannot tell for sure what I was doing on this date. Did I attend any omen’s day function that day ? I cannot say for sure. Out of the four songs that were discussed that day, one song was penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. But there as no mention of his birth anniversary in that post. There was no mention of International women’s day either in this post or the other posts of that day. Those were simple days for the blog hen we lived simple lives not even aware of important days of HFM ! 🙂

THese days of course we are far more knolegeable on such matters. 🙂 Today the blog has already seen seven posts, and six of them have been Sahir Ludhianvi posts.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Chowkidaar”(1974), exactly eleven years after the movie made its debut.

This song is sung by Rafi. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The song is picturised as an “expression of love” genre of song on Sanjeev Kumar and Yogita Bali.

A nice “expression of love” song it is. I suppose that this is a typical Woman’s day song as far as Hindi movies are concerned. Statistics bear me out because this song is the 3222nd song of this genre in the blog, which is easily one of the most common genre of songs in HFM. So this song can be described as a Woman’s day song too. Women’s need not just be subjected to dry preachy praises on this day, they need to be wooed romantically as well. 🙂 That is what this song does. 🙂

So a Happy International woman’s day to all.

With this song, all the six songs of “Chowkidaar”(1974) are covered in the blog and the movie thus gets YIPPEED in the blog.

Song-Ik ladki bholi bhaali si (Chowkidaar)(1974) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

kahaan chali ho ye
sharma ke munh chhupaaye huye
kadam kadam pe
kayaamat si ek uthhaaye huye

ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ke jiska naam hai raadha
ke jiska roop hai saada
kuchh sharma ke
kuchh ghabra ke
kar gayi pyaar ka vaada
ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ke jiska naam hai raadha
ke jiska roop hai saada
kuchh sharma ke
kuchh ghabra ke
kar gayi pyaar ka vaada
ik ladki bholi bhaali si

shabnam jiska mukhda dhoye
sooraj rang nikhaare ae
shabnam jiska mukhda dhoye
sooraj rang nikhaare ae
mast pawan ka chanchal jhonka
jiske baal sanwaare
ankiyaan jiski badi badi
jiska badan phoolon ki ladi
aaj vo kaise dil de baithhi
soch rahi hai khadi khadi
ek ladki bholi bhaali si
ke jiska naam hai raadha
ke jiska roop hai saada
kuchh sharma ke
kuchh ghabra ke
kar gayi pyaar ka vaada
ik ladki bholi bhaali si

do bolon mein sab kuchh kah gayi
pyaar mein bebas ho kar rah gayi
do bolon mein sab kuchh kah gayi
pyaar mein bebas ho kar rah gayi
dil ki baat jubaan par laayi
thhokhar khaayi aur pachhtaayi
nikhri nikhri surat hai
ladki hai ya moorat hai
yahi to hai vo albeli
jiski humen zuroorat hai
ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ik ladki bholi bhaali si
ik ladki bholi bhaali si

Today (28 January 2021) is the 84rd birthday of Suman Kalyanpur (DoB 28 Jauary 1937). On this occasion, here is a song from “Rivaaj”(1972). This song is sung by Suman LKalyanpur. Indeevar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is lip synced by Mala Sinha and it is picturised as a god bharai ceremony song, as can be guessed from the lyrics of the song. Many people are seen in the picturisation. I can only identify Sanjeev Kumar. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

We take this opportunit to wish Suman Kalyanpur a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

06/11/2020 – 35th Remembrance day of Sanjeev Kumar

The song I am presenting today as a tribute to Sanjeev Kumar, the versatile actor, comic, romantic, angry young man, character actor and sometime villainous, actor and above all the Thakur of ‘Sholay’, is from the film ‘Love and God’ (1986). Sanjeev Kumar was born on 9th July, 1938 as Harihar Jethalal Jariwala , at Surat. His filmography lists 171 films from 1960 to 1994. He was just 48 years old when he died in 1985, though he had been doing the roles of old man since 70’s. In ‘Aandhi’ he is the patient hotelier husband of Suchitra Sen, caught between the ambitious father Rehman and his dutiful daughter. I have seen that film 4 decades ago, it is time to refresh the memory.

Who can forget the doctor in “Mausam”, singing “chhadi re chhadikaise gale meinpadi”. He was also one of the dedicated “Shatraj ke Khiladi”. The inspector in this, the lawyer in that plus the doctor in ‘Silsila’. Wah, come to think of it he was also one of the actors who had a profession. Be it a ‘darzi’ or a ‘domestic servant, nothing was too lowly for him. Who can forget the novelist in “Anamika”. It will be interesting to know if he played the role of a cook, or a librarian(possible), a professor, or a watchman, waiter etc.

Before I forget, he has the distinction of doing the role of Jaya Bahaduri (Bachchan)’s, husband, hero, friend, father, father-in-law etc.

The film “Love and God” was based on the story of Laila Majnu and Sanjeev Kumar eventually played the role of “Qais”(did Qais have a profession?) here, after the film was shelved and revived several times. Guru Dutt was originally cast in the role of ‘Qais’. The much delayed film by K. Asif was finally released in 1986 after even Sanjeev Kumar had died.

The song presented here is again a prayer (Du’aa) song, written by Khumar Barabankwi, composed by Naushad. Singers are the ever divine Mohammed Rafi Sahab and Lata Mangeshkar with Chorus. This du’aais very carefully following the protocol of prayer, in the sense, it starts with the devotion and how the Allah’s greatness is visible everywhere. Then first stanza talks how I am aggrieved and I have come to you, believing in you, with the hope in the heart. Second stanza has the appeal that all is in your hands and you will do as deemed best, you are the all merciful and save me from humiliation. Last stanza is the lament that I can’t bear this desolation, give the whole universe of others if you wish but grant me my one wish, i.e. my mohabbat.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 110 # Tribute to actor Sanjeev Kumar #
—————————————————————————————

Today 6th November’2020 is the thirty-fifth ‘Remembrance Day’ of India’s one of the most admired and finest actors Sanjeev Kumar. He was born as Haribhai Jethalal Jariwala on in Surat on 9th July’1938. And he passed away due to a severe ‘heart attack’ on 6th November’1985.

A stint at a film school led him to Hindi film Industry and from there it was no looking back for him. He soon proved his versatility and genius in acting and also won prestigious National Film awards for Best actor two times- for ‘Dastak-1970’ and ‘Koshish-1972’.

And after that many awards and praises continued to shower on him for his various roles and class acting in movies.
But destiny has something else in store for him. While he survived a heart attack in 1976 and after that went to US to have a by-pass surgery, but it didn’t help and he suffered a massive heart attack on 06.11.1985 and passed away at the young age of forty-eight only. Though he played many roles of older age person in movies in real life he didn’t get a chance to reach that ‘older age’.

Sanjeev Kumar was an actor that everyone in Our group of cricket loving friends in our colony admired, even though they were ‘great’ fan of someone else.

I am reminded of many of his roles and the movies he acted in when I try to go down mewmory lane. But I will leave that for another post in the future. (I am also not giving here the other details of this movie as per my normal practice and leaving the same to be given with other song/s of this movie to be posted on the blog in near future).

I will now come to today’s song. It is from a movie which I remembered watching during those growing years between 1975-1980.

The movie is a ‘1972’ movie ‘Rivaaj’.

Two songs of this movie, both shared by me, have been posted on the blog earlier which were in my memory. Today’s song was also shared by me around the same time, but somehow it remains to be posted.

I will reproduce the text of my mail that I write to Atul ji then while sharing this song;

“Very happy to share this song, as it was in my vague memory and time to time haunt me some time. finally, I got it and now sharing to you.
though I do not remember the film completely now, but here in this song I got this saffron clad SANJEEV KUMAR as I had mentioned while sharing first song from this 1972 – RIVAAJ.

I am also reproducing a brief about this movie as taken from ‘Wikipedia’ here;

“Mala Sinha plays a young widow and she stays in the temple with her father Pujariji or temple priest played by Nazir Hussain. In the temple itself she meets Shekhar, Sanjeev Kumar, where both fall in love and want to get married, when opposition comes from Shekhar’s mother, Pandari Bai, who is against child widow’s re-marriage. She gets her son married to a woman of her choice played by Zeb Rehman. Lakshmi starts leading the life of a widow. Shekhar’s wife is blessed with a daughter Rajji and starts leading a contented married life, when destiny jolts him with loss of his job and death of his wife with cancer. Rajji happens to witness him lighting the pyre of her mother by Hindu custom, is unable to understand, and suffers a psychological shock thinking that her father had burnt her mother alive and would burn her too! She starts hating him and is scared of him, which further deepens the pain and loss of Shekhar.

Here respite comes for Rajji when her grandmother tells her that her mother will come back in the form of a plant or take up another woman’s form and return to her beloved daughter from God. Rajji goes to the cremation grounds again and sees a plant where her mother had been cremated. She starts talking to it as if it was her mother. Lakshmi who had come to the river nearby, chances to hear Rajji talking to the plant and filled with emotion starts talking back from the back of a small temple of God Hanuman, pretending to be her mother. Rajji is overjoyed and the ritual is repeated everyday with Lakshmi being unaware as to whose daughter Rajji is.
Meanwhile Shekhar saves the life of the wheel chair ridden sister and heiress Sulochana Latkar of Shatrughan Sinha, who appoints him as her estate manager, much to the chagrin of her brother. He is involved in saving her assets from her rogue brother many times which creates ill-will amongst them.

Shekhar is also told by his mother that Rajji meets some woman pretending to be her dead mother and Shekhar discovers that she is no other than Lakshmi who loves his daughter as her own now. Again, Lakshmi is derided by Shekhar’s mother as well as her own father Pujari ji for dreaming of having a family.

Shatrughan Sinha kidnaps Rajji and there ensues a bloody struggle which however nasty, brings back and unites Rajji, Lakshmi and Shekhar, bringing them back to the precincts of the holy Jagdish Ji Temple, the bells resounding the power and glory of God.”

Let us now listen to the today’s song and watch the great Sanjeev Kumar in ‘two-state’ of mind – ‘one totally devastated’ and want to ‘end the world’ as he has lost his beloved wife, and the other one pacifying him to ‘think and hope good fortunes coming to him in the future’.

The lyrics of this song are written by Kaifi Azmi and it is composed to music by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi and Manna Dey are the singers.

Blog Day : 4464 Post No. : 15949

07/10/2020 – 79th Birthday of Usha Khanna
———————————————————————–

We are celebrating the 79th birthday of Usha Khanna, the only female music director, shall we say with a sizable films and number of songs to her credit. Ameerbai Karnataki is the other female composer I can think of. This field as some technical fields in the film industry has been dominated by males. The reasons for this could be socio-political. As the musicians were mostly men, so it is understandable. Like I said the technical side is dominated by males in this industry. There are very few female director’s also. No cinematographers that I have heard of, recently if someone has entered the fray I don’t know.

Usha Khanna’s career statistics are impressive, better than even major well known music composers. Imdb is listing 141 films from 1959 to 2016, that is five and half decades.

In my Vinod Khanna post yesterday, I said that the film “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” is missing in the filmography at imdb. I didn’t look close enough, it appears. Peevesie’s Mom informed me that it is very much there in the list but as “Conqueror of destiny”. Imdb is giving the names of hindi film in English translation. The two of us had fun translating some of the names of Vinod Khanna’s films, which imdb had left as it is.

As Usha Khanna’s filmography is untouched by this translation bug, I am trying my hand at it :

1. Dil deke dekho : Give your heart then see for yourself. (That’s full sentence)
2. Hum Hindustani : We Indians (That was easy)

About the movie Alibaba and 40 thieves(1966) I have written some things in this post of a song from Alibaba chaalis chor (1954).

The stats page of the blog shows that she has composed 973 songs, and only 223 are posted so far. That is less than 25% of the total song composed by the one of the most prolific music directors of the golden era of hindi film music and later. My own tally is 4 posts of Usha Khanna’s songs, posted by me so far, including the present post. The blog also has 37 songs sung by Usha Khanna.

The present song is from the film Alibaba and forty thieves (1966). The composer is Usha Khanna. There are two lyricist credited with writing this song, namely Prem Dhawan and Javed Anwar. Javed Anwar is the pen name used by her father Manoharlal Khanna, for writing ghazals and film songs for her.

Three songs from the film are posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere khayaalon ka tu hi khuda (Alibaba and forty thieves) 23 October 2011
Ham tere charaagh hain jalaaye jaa bujhaaye jaa (Alibaba and forty thieves) 29 January 2015
Dekhiye zara pyaar se kyun khafa ho dildaar se (Alibaba and forty thieves) 14 January 2020

The singers are Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur, singing for Sanjeev Kumar and L. Vijayalaxmi. The song is a sweet romantic song picturised in colourful sets. Actually I saw a few songs of this movie today. I am trying to find an old song where, the slaves are being sold in the market and one female is singing a song, calling out for rescue. I vaguely remember such a song having seen in “Chhayageet” on TV. Since the TV used to be black n white, the colour songs are also remembered in black n while. I did not find the song I am looking for. It could be anywhere as I know only the situation. It’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

Hullo Atuldom

“Waqt Ki Deewaar” is a 1981 release. It had Neetu Singh, Sulakshana Pandit, Jeetendra, Pran, Kadar Khan, Amjad Khan, Satyen Kappu, Paintal, Preeti Ganguly etc.

There was one other important actor in the cast. An actor who didn’t have a ‘set image’ in Bollywood. He could fit into any role he signed up for. He has played father, father-in-law, boyfriend, etc to Jaya (Bachchan) Bhadhuri. We are talking of Sanjeev Kumar here. Born Harihar Jethalal Jhariwala in 1938, he made his debut in 1960 with a small role in “Hum Hindustani”. His first film as a protagonist was “Nishaan” which came in 1965. On the road to becoming an actor-star who could be banked upon to play any character that he was given, we have seen him play Dilip Kumar’s brother in the 1968 released “Sanghursh” and friend to Shammi Kapoor in “Sachchaai” (1969).

He was the preferred actor for all producers and directors of South Indian film industry when they had remake plans of films that were successful in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada etc. So we saw him in “Khilona” which was made from Tamil and he played the role that Sivaji Ganesan played in the original. He has apprised roles played by NT Rama Rao (Telugu) in “Takkar” “Shrimaan Shrimati”, Dr. Rajkumar (Kannada) in “Shaandaar” etc. Who can forget “Naya Din Nayi Raat” which had him play 9 different characters. He was given lead roles by South Indian film makers even as we saw him play father to Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor or supporting roles in “Zabardast”, “Silsila”, “Hero”, “Sawaal” etc.
We were regaled to wonderful comedy by this versatile actor in “Angoor”, “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, “Hero”, “Biwi O Biwi”, “Seeta Aur Geeta” etc. At the same time he was there in Satyajit Ray’s “Shatranj Ke Khiladi” playing a chess-obsessed citizen of Lucknow.

He has been romantically paired with most of the heroines in the movies of those times- be it Moushumi, Sharmila, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Rekha, Nutan, Mala Sinha, Tanuja and even Waheeda Rehman. We have seen him in two-hero movies too like with Shashi Kapoor in Mukti, Jeetendera in Khilona, Waqt Ki Deewar, Dharti Kahe Pukar ke, Faraar with Amitabh Bachchan, Bereham with Shatrughan Sinha.

Let us enjoy this two-hero song and think of this super actor and see him smile and charm the audience. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Mohd. Rafi. It is written by Anjaan and Laxmi -Pyare are the music composers. We have Jayshree T and Sulakshna Pandit adding to the glamour quotient and Amjad Khan plotting his next move.

Lyrics(Based on audio link)

ae yaar teri yaari
humein jaan se hai pyaari
ae yaar teri yaari
humein jaan se hai pyaari
teri yaari pe
teri yaari pe jaan luta denge
luta denge
luta denge
tere saath hai marna jeena
jahaan tera girega paseena aa
tere saath hai marna jeena
jahaan tera girega paseena
hum paseene pe
hum paseene pe khoon bahaa denge
bahaa denge
bahaa denge

ae yaar teri yaari
humein jaan se hai pyaari ee
ae yaar teri yaari

yoon raah mein chalte chalte
koi yaar nahin ban jaataa
yoon raah mein chalte chalte ae
koi yaar nahin ban jaataa

lagta hai ke tera mera
lagta hai ke tera mera
koi pichhle janam ka hai naata
woh yaar hai jo dukh baante
teri raahon se chunke kaante
woh yaar hai jo dukh baante
teri raahon se chunke kaante
tere kadmon pe
tere kadmon pe phool bichhaa denge,
bichhaa denge
bichhaa denge

ae yaar teri yaari
humein jaan se hai pyaari
ae yaar teri yaari

hum saath hon jis mehfil mein
hum par dil haare duniya
hum saath hon jis mehfil mein,
hum par dil haare duniya
teri meri yaari ko
teri meri yaari ko,
hai rasste nihaare duniya

duniya toh kisi din chhoote,
yaari marke na toote
duniya toh kisi din chhoote,
yaari marke na toote
ye zamaane ko
ye zamaane ko ek din bataa denge,
batadenge, batadenge
ae yaar teri yaari
humein jaan se hai pyaari
ae yaar teri yaari

moorat hai sachhaai ki tu,
baaki saara jag hai dhokha
moorat hai sachhaai ki tu
baaki saara jag hai dhokha

tujhpe hai bharosa jitna
tujhpe hai bharosa jitna
utna na khuda pe hoga
teri oar jo aankh uthhaaye
tujhse jo kahin takraaye
teri oar jo aankh uthaaye
tujhse jo kahin takraaye
saari duniya mein
saari duniya mein aag laga denge
laga denge
laga denge
ae yaar teri yaari
humein jaan se hai pyaari
ae yaar teri yaari
hamen jaan se hai pyaari
teri yaari pe
teri yaari pe jaan luta denge,
luta denge
luta denge
ae yaar teri yaari
