Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Today 29th December’2021 is the seventy-nineth birth anniversary (29 December 1942 – 18 July 2012) of Rajesh Khanna, born as Jatin Khanna.

On this occasion we pay our tributes to him and listen a song from one of his movies.

In this ninth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1982. In the year 1982 the following six movies of Rajesh Khanna were released (including ‘Disco Dancer’* where he had a friendly appearance).

(*Friendly Appearance, **Guest Appearance)

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna in the late seventies switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and taking a new challenge for his ‘second innings’.

In the late seventies and early eighties, he has a string of successful movies viz. ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodi Si Bewafaai’ (1980), and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose) (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980), and ‘Bandish’ (1980).

In 1981 he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil e Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

‘Qudrat’ (1981) was a multi-starrer movie and had good success at the box-office. That saw Kaka putting more efforts to change his image and considering films in the ‘multi-starrer’ and ‘action’ genres, which he thought earlier was not his ‘cup of tea’. It can also be said that these two ‘genres’, where he was not doing films, were partly responsible for the failure of his earlier movies on the box-office.

In 1982 we had Kaka’s films like ‘Raaput’, ‘Ashaanti’, ‘Dharam Kaanta’ which were multi-starrer as well as action movies. He further continued doing such ‘multi-starrer-masaala’ films like ‘Paapi Pet Ka Sawaal Hai’, ‘Dharm Aur Qaanoon’, ‘Maqsad’, ‘Bewafaai’, ‘Awaam’, ‘Vijay’, etc. coming in the next few years.

Today’s song is from one of the above movies and that movie is ‘Ashaanti’. This song also beautifully catches the ‘spirit of team efforts’ instead of a ‘one-man-show’ and advocates ‘helping each other’ to get success.

‘Ashaanti’ is directed by Umesh Mehra for Eagle Films, Bombay, and is produced by Parvesh C. Mehra.

The movie has Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi, Mithun Chakravarty, Kanwaljeet, Amrish Puri, Jeevan, Narendra Nath, Monty, Mac Mohan, Kishore Kapoor, Yusuf Khan, Ram Sethi, Nadira, Satyen Kappu, Bob Christo, Mohan Choti, Avtar Gill, Ajay Agrawal, Amir Jambra, Yusuf, Ganesh, and others. Prem Kishan and Ramesh Deo makes a special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 01.05.1982.

This movie has five songs composed by RD Burman. Lyrics for all the five songs are penned by Anand Bakshi. Following is the list of songs this movie had.

05 Shakti de ma … o pag pag thokar khaaun chal naa paaun … Chandrashekhar Gadgil, chorus 29.12.2012

That was all around forty years back now. And if we go back further ten years to the year 1972. That is around fifty years back from now, we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

We can see all the above movies had great music too as usual for Kaka movies.

Coming back to the today’s song it is from the movie 1982 movie ‘Ashaanti’. As mentioned above Lyrics for all the songs are written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by RD Burman.

In today’s song Rajesh Khanna is lip-syncing for the voice of Kishore Kumar, Mithun Chakravarty for Shailendra Singh, Kanwaljeet for Kishore Kumar and Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi and Shabana Azmi are lip-syncing for the voice of Asha Bhonsle.

We can see many others in the picturisation of this song.

Let us now enjoy this foot-tapping song now …

Hullo Atuldom

“Parvarish” (1977) was one of the four movies that was directed by Manmohan Desai in 1977. It was produced by A A Nadiadwala. It had a small starcast headed by Shammi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Tom Alter, Yusuf Khan (Zebisco of Amar Akbar Anthony which also released in 1977) plus some of Manmohan Desai’s favourite actors of that year viz. Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Kadar Khan and Amjad Khan. Kadar Khan also was in-charge of the dialogues.

The movie’s songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Laxmi Pyare. Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh and Lata- Asha- Usha were the playback singers used for the six songs of the movie, five of which are there on the blog as under.

Ye oonche mahal suhaane sab janta ka hai 29 November 2019 shortest post for a song from this movie

High time we took this movie, which first appeared on the blog in 2009, to “Yyiippeeee” station. And July 8th is a good date to do so as it is the 63rd birthday of the sweet-cute-charming-elegant-beautiful Neetu Singh a.k.a Baby Sonia of the gorgeous smile. She was born in Delhi in a Sikh family with the birth name Harneet Kaur. She began as a child actor in the late ’60s as baby Sonia with movies like ‘Suraj’, ‘Dus Lakh’, ‘Do Dooni Chaar’ etc. was seen as an adolescent in ‘Pavitra Paapi’ ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ etc before turning to adult roles with ‘Rickshawala’ ‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’ etc in 1973.

She had a good successful career of nearly 10-12 years as an adult before she bade goodbye to stardom to raise a family. We all know she is Bahu of the Kapoor-Khandaan, Mrs. Rishi Kapoor, mother of actor Ranbir Kapoor, etc.. But she is also Neetu Singh (Kapoor to the present generation of moviegoers) and we are all her fans. Here is wishing her good health and cheer. Happy Birthday Baby Sonia.

Today’s song is a stage song where Amjad Khan is the chief guest and Neetu and Shabo (Desai didn’t break his head in naming his heroines) are the qawwali artists on the stage and use the situation to ‘take shots’ at Amjad Khan (ex. daku Mangal Singh) who was the cause of the death of their parents (Ram Sethi and Chand Usmani in blink and miss appearances). If I remember correctly, this was the song just before the climax of the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Usha Mangeshkar.

aakhir rach gaye wo din
wo sama guzar gaya
aaj toh aisa lage,

Rajesh Roshan, who celebrated his sixthsixth birthday last week (DoB 24 may 1955) had made his debut in Hindi movies as a music director with the ‘1974’ movie ‘Kunwaara Baap’. Thereafter he scored some nice music in his movies in his long career.

One year after his debut, he won the ‘Filmfare Award’ for ‘best music’ for the movie ‘Julie-1975’. He won his second filmfare award twenty-five years later, the movie ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai-2000’.
In between he was nominated for ‘Filmfare Award for Best Music Director’ for the movies ‘Swami-1977’, ‘Des Pardes-1978’, ‘Mr. Natwarlal-1979’, ‘Kaalaa Patthar-1979’, ‘Khoon Bhari Maang-1988’, ‘Karan Arjun-1995’, ‘Papa Kehte Hain-1996’, and ‘Koi Mil Gayaa-2003’.

‘Kaabil-2017’ was the recent movie where he scored the music.

I have already written a post here about the music of Rajesh Roshan and my nostalgic memories about the songs he created, so I will not repeat the same things here.

Today I present presenting a song from the movie ‘Ek Hi Raastaa-1977’. Incidentally this will be the third song in a row from this movie that I will be covering.

‘Ek Hi Raastaa-1977’ was a ‘Uma Cine Films’, Bombay presentation. It was a ‘social-family drama’ movie. It was produced and directed by Mohan Sehgal and its star-cast included Jeetendra, Shabana Azmi, Vinod Mehra, Asha Sachdev, Utpal Dutt, Roohi, Indrani Mukherji, Krishan Dhawan, Jagdeep, Om Shivpuri, Meena Rai, Maruti, C.S. Dubey, Chandrima Bhaduri, Jankidas, Umrani, Mahapatra, Polsan, Pardesi, O.P. Kohli, Master Indrajeet, Satyarani, Viraj Kumar, Bhola, Master Babu and Master Asif.

It had total five songs penned by Verma Malik and music of this film was composed by Rajesh Roshan (assisted by Gyan, Kishore, and Nirmal).

As per the information available, so far, there have been four films made with this title ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ in 1939, 1956, 1977 and 1993.

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

I have not watched this movie so cannot say much about it.

List of songs – ‘Ek Hi Raasta-1977’ as per HFGK (1971-1980) Vol-V; (in order of appearance in the Geetkosh)

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 109 # Tribute to actor Vinod Mehra #
————————————————————————————

30th October’2020 is the thirtieth ‘Rememberance Day’ of one of the much loved and handsome actors of Hindi Film Industry – Vinod Mehra. He was born on 13th February’1945 and passed away at the young age of forty-five only. The news of his death shocked everybody at that time. He started his career in Hindi movies as a child artist in the late fifties and his career as an adult began in 1971.

‘Seventies’ saw many actors who may not have worked more or given many hits but somehow they have left their indelible impression in the mind of movie-goers and children grown in ‘seventies’ like me.

I think I can include names like Vinod Mehra, Navin Nischol, Vijay Arora, Anil Dhawan, Mahendra Sandhu, Vishal Anand etc. in this list. (I may be forgetting some and not recollecting at this moment).

That was a time when we were watching movies without being a ‘fan’ of anyone. The ‘thrill’ of watching movie in the ‘theatre’ and the whole atmosphere, the big ‘posters’ , the ‘ticket windows’, the different color tickets of various ‘classes’, the ‘namkeen moongfalli, or chanaa and ‘sharbat’ was other main attraction in the intervals and coming out of the theatre after the show ends was like landing back from ‘another planet’ to our own 😊

Vinod Mehra is one such name from those years which immediately reminfds us of his ever ‘smiling face’. His hair style and his looks, his physique and appearance on the screen always give a ‘warm’ feeling. His ‘emotional roles’ make our eyes misty and gave our hearts a stir. Such was his impact. And when I am writing about him, first time here on the blog, I feel like missing a friend or like familiar person very much and my mind constantly asking me – why is that people like him passed at so early? at the age of forty-five?
I think these lines from the today’s song best explain my thoughts for him today ‘tumse nahin pehchaan meri, phir bhi aise lagtaa hai pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna saath rahaa ho jaise’…

It was like he was around in one special corner of our heart always there in the midst of so many stars around.

I remember his photo with his signature sent to my Father in reply to his fan mail which was in his possession along with other ‘star’s’ letters.

Well, going back to the movies of Vinod Mehra which I remember to have watched …

If I try to recollect now the movies of his that comes to my mind as an oldest memory of him, of course, start with ‘tere nainon ke main deep jalaaungaa’ i.e. Anuraag-1972 which I must have watched with my parents. But the song continued to haunt me as a flashback all over the years and the other song and movie permanently embedded on my impressionable mind was ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’ – its song – ‘jhoomtaa saawan dekho aaya’ – never got erased from my memory.

In between I must have watched his ‘Do Phool-1973’, ‘Kunwaara Baap-1974’, ‘Raftaar-1975’, ‘Do Jhooth-1975’,’Naagin-1976’, ‘Ghar-1978’, ‘Chakravyuha-1978’, ‘Swarg Narak-1978’, ‘Dada-1979’, ‘The Burning Train-1980’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’, ‘Khuddaar-1982’. I watched these movies either with my parents or my uncle.

For ‘Jaani Dushman-1979’ I was permitted to go alone and not take my younger brothers with me so that they don’t get scared watching and after watching the movie 😊

I watched his ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’, ‘Dharam Aur Qanoon-1984’, ‘Jeene Nahin Doonga-1984’, ‘Locket-1986’, ‘Aag Hi Aag-1987’ with my brothers and cousins.

And I watched ‘Eeshwar-1989’ during my stay at Kota.

I watched his ‘Amardeep-1979’ in 2012 when Rajesh Khanna passed away and movies of Kaka were screened specially on a tv channel.

I watched his ‘Anurodh-1977’ on VCD, much later when I was in Nagpur in 2016 and liked his role very much.
The latest of his movie that I watch was ‘Aarop-1974’ which I watched on my laptop in Sep’2019 during my stay at Kenya (during my preparation for a post for BTYC).

I may have also watched his other movies but I am forgetting them like I think I had watched ‘Sabse Bada Rupaiyya-1976’ and later ‘Amarprem-1971’ may be on tv channels.

However, when I see his filmography now, I realized that I have yet to watch many of his movies from the seventies as well as of eighties till he was doing acting.

Coming back to today’s song now, it is from the movie ‘Ek Hi Raasta-1977’ wherein Vinod Mehra is lip syncing for Rafi Saab’s voice and music is composed by Rajesh Roshan. Lyrics are by Verma Malik.

Shabana Azmi and a child artist (Master Inderjeet/Master Asif/Master Babu?) are also seen in the picturization of this song.

One song from the movie was introduced by me here where in I have given the details of this movie – ‘Ek Hi Raasta-1977’. So, I will not repeat the same here, and instead I will give the details of songs from this movie in the following table (our new practice, so that whenever the movies are Yippeeee’ed on the blog we need to ‘insert’ the links of the respective songs only and update the table for grand ‘finale’ 😊

Lyrics

(dialogues not included)

(Child’s laughing sound)

Tumse nahin pehchaan meri
Lekin aise lagta hai
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae

Tumse nahin pehchaan meri
Lekin aise lagta hai
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise

Tujhe dekh ke bhooli bisri
Tasveer ubhar aati hai
Yaad ki dhundhli si parchhaayee
Dil mein utar jaati hai
Donon ko naa yaad rahaa ho
Ho sakta hai aise
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae

Tujhse mera kya naata
Jab samajh nahin paata hoon
Doob ke main gehraayiyon mein
Ye sochke reh jaata hoon
Kisi janam mein toone koi
vachan liya ho jaise
Pehle bhi kisi yug mein apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae
Tumse nahin pehchaan meri
Lekin aise ae lagta hai
Pehle bhi kisi yug me apna
Saath rahaa ho jaise ae

(गीत के शुरुवात में दिए गए संवाद शामिल नहीं किये गए हैं)

(बच्चे के हंसने की आवाज़)

तुमसे नहीं पहचान मेरी
लेकिन ऐसे लगता है
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुमसे नहीं पहचान मेरी
लेकिन ऐसे लगता है
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुझे देख के भूली बिसरी
तस्वीर उभर आती है
याद की धुंधली सी परछाई
दिल में उतर जाती है
दोनों को ना याद रहा हो
हो सकता है ऐसे
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुझसे मेरा क्या नाता आ
जब समझ नहीं पाता हूँ
डूब के मैं गहराईयों में
ये सोचके रह जाता हूँ
किसी जनम में तूने कोई
वचन लिया हो जैसे
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

तुमसे नहीं पहचान मेरी
लेकिन ऐसे लगता है
पहले भी किसी युग में अपना
साथ रहा हो जैसे ए

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 108 # Tribute to Lyricist – Anjaan #
——————————————————————————–

Today 28th Oct’2020 is the ninetieth birth anniversary (born on 28.10.1930 in Varanasi) of Lalji Pandey better known to us by his pen-name ‘Anjaan’.

As per our blog statistics he has written over 1300 songs during his career in Hindi movies. Most of his works were in collaborations with composers Kalyanji–Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, R. D. Burman and Bappi Lahiri.

He passed away at the age of sixty-six on 3rd of Septemeber’1997 in Mumbai.

On his ‘birth anniversary’ I was looking for a song from a new movie where he had penned all the songs.

I am taking the readers to the decade of seventies. Today we will listen to an enjoyable song from that decade. This song was frequently heard on radio those days. It was perhahs the only known song from the movie.

I have not watched this movie so I am in no position to discuss much about it.

The movie is “Jwaalaamukhi”(1980). So it is another same name movie getting introduced in the blog.

“Jwaalaamukhi-1980” was directed by Prakash Mehra for Baboo Mehra Productions, Bombay. It had Waheeda Rehman, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Vinod Mehra, Shabana Azmi, Bindu, Kader Khan, Shreeram Lagoo, Pran, Ram Sethi, Bhola, Yunus Parvez, Shivraj, Asha Chandra, Mumtaz Begam, Goga, Kirti, Uttam Sodi, Jugnu and others.

Amjad Khan, Aruna Irani and Raj Babbar had ‘special appearance’ in the movie.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.12.1980.

I do not remember how this movie had fared at the box office so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

The movie had five songs including a music track as mentioned in HFGK and listed below (our new practice now onwards while introducing a movie 😊)

All the songs were written by Anjaan and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

None of the songs from this movie made it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ of 1981 (as the movie was released in December’1980).
When I thought that the today’s song should be more popular as I liked it listening then too and could have made to the list or ‘shadow list’ of the ‘binaca geetmala’ (or songs that could not make it to the finals as compiled by Anil Bhargava), to my surprise it was not. However, one other song from this movie “Paan, beedi, cigarette, tambaaku, na sharaab, ham ko nasha hai muhabbat ka janaab’ sung by Kishore Kumar made it to this ‘shadow’ list.

List of songs in this movie as appearing in HFGK (1971-1980) Vol-V.

Song Title Singer
1) Hum tere bina bhi nahin jee sakte … Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata
2) Hmm hmm tujhe sab pyaar karte hai…ye chehre pe chehraa Kishore Kumar
3) Kabhi tumne kisi ko phaansaa … Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
4) Hmm welcome …. hamko to nashaa muhabbat ka hai janaab Kishore Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha
5) Music –

let us now enjoy this wonderful and highly hummable song. It is picturized on Shabana Azmi, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra and Reena Roy who are performing on the song while many others are seen in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Even this one – you might say. Aah yes, even this one. 🙂

This song from ‘Mahal’ in 1949, probably has the most recognized prelude across the entire history of Hindi Film Song. It has become the signature song of the earlier decades of Hindi cinema. No representative selection of Lata ji’s songs would ever be considered complete without it.

The all too familiar picturization – the girl on the swing then the empty swing, the lonely boat in the river, the stunningly beautiful features of Kamini (Madhubala) – the song and its images are now an unforgettable montage. There is a whole traditional lore that now accompanies this song, which has achieved a cult status over the decades.

‘Kadambari’ from 1975, is delicate love story of young hearts which has some unconventional twists to it. The film is based on the novel ‘Dharti Sagar te Sippiyan’ written by Amrita Pritam. The film is produced under the banner of Madhu Creation Picture Pvt Ltd, Bombay and is directed by HK Verma. The star cast lis listed as Shabana Azmi, Vijay Arora, Arpana Choudhary, Jeet Surendra, Ajeet Singh, Mona, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, and V Gopal etc.

The film has two songs. One is written by Amrita Pritam herself –“Ambar Ki Ek Paak Suraahi, Baadal Ka Ek Jaam Uthaakar”, composed by Ustad Vilayat Khan and sung by Asha Bhosle, and the second one is “Kyon Hum Tum Rahen Akele”, written by Geetanjali Singh and is composed and sung by Ajeet Singh.

As per the official listings, that is all the songs in this film. In fact both the songs are already present on our blog and in that sense the film is already yippeee’d.

But wait, here is the surprise that was mentioned in a message early morning today. The film carries this iconic song – a repeat version, which in of itself, has a significant importance. The song is not reused in its original form. It has been re-recorded in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurty, and reused in this film. The important point here is that this is the debut recording of a film song by Kavita Krishnamurty in Hindi films – her first song. And she gets to re-render this classic masterpiece.

The song appears in the film in two parts. One stanza is performed close to the beginning of the film. The occasion is the birthday party of Chetna (Shabana Azmi). A very close and dear friend, Amit (Vijay Arora) is still awaited to join. In this mood, Chetna sings one stanza of this song – “Deepak Bagair Kaise Parwaane Jal Rahe Hain“.

The second stanza – “Bhatki Huyi Jawaani. . .” appears sometime before the end of the film. This stanza appears in the background. The situation is that a chance meeting happens between Chetna and Sheetal (Aparna Chaudhry) after many years. Both are in passing through difficult time in life, both are single and both are awaiting the men they love to return to them. Sheetal is in love with Sudhir (Jeet Surendra), who is the brother of Chetna.

As Chetna departs from Sheetal’s home, the song starts to play, with the visual cutting back and forth between Sheetal at home, with paintbrush and canvas, and Chetna in a three wheeler heading back to her home. “Maanjhi Bagair Naiya Saahil Ko Dhoondhti Hai” – the two friends are like directionless boats at sea, searching for the shores.

A brief summary of the storyline,

Chetna and Amit are childhood friends, and are in love. Amit has a past that he once reveals to Chetna – that he is an illegitimate child. His mother was a victim of a violent assault, and the man responsible neither did own up, nor accepted the lady. Amit’s mother (Chand Usmani) single handedly brings up Amit and educates him to be a doctor. Amit reveals that he has such a reverence for his mother that he has taken a vow never to marry, not sure how the prospective addition to the family would treat his mother and whether she would understand the painful past in the family.

To Chetna it becomes clear that Amit will not marry. She is heartbroken, but then she promises herself she will never pursue him for matrimony. An interlude happens in between, and Chetna is now carrying Amit’s child. She hides this fact from everyone, including Amit, moves to Bombay from Delhi on the pretext of a job, stays there for a couple of years, has the child and then returns home with a story about an unfortunate family where the parents passed away leaving behind this newborn child. So she has adopted the child.

The parallel love saga of Sheetal and Sudhir is also not working out well, and the two are not seeing each other. Both are in pain, but both are restraining. Chetna meets with Sheetal and talks with her to coax her back and rebuild the relationship with Sudhir.

In the meantime, Chetna and Amit are also back to their normal exchanges. Amit’s mother, who has always liked Chetna, starts to help with taking care of the child. Some observations, some exchanges, something about the child and Amit’s mother comes to realize that the child’s father is Amit, her son. Situations progress to an amiable juncture where this fact gets revealed and is accepted by everybody. Both couples are back together once again.

It is a sensitively handled drama of love. There are no emotional overplays in the film. Every situation is underplayed and intelligently handled. Love stories are not always dependent on villains and stern parents to play out their saga. In some cases, it is the protagonists themselves who provide the interesting and unexpected turns to the story. ‘Kadambari’ is one such story.

The reuse of the two stanzas of this song are also very imaginative and very appropriately linked into the specific situations and story flow.

And yes, by the way, as per the ten year challenge chart published early morning today, ‘Kadambari’ made its debut 10 years ago today. Quite appropriately, we bring on this post, and add the repeat song to the list of songs of this film on our blog. The song has been suggested to me by Dear Avinash ji, who has also sent us both the set of lyrics – in Hindi and English.

A mysterious and dreary night of a palace from 1949 got transformed into a birthday party at a middle class home in Delhi in 1975. Watch, listen and enjoy.

‘Sparsh’ (1980) was Sai Paranjpye’s first feature film. Besides directing it, she wrote the story, screen-play and dialogues.  At the time of making of the film, she faced enormous problems at every stage – from the selection of actors to the submission of the film’s final print to the Central Board of Film Certification and then to the Feature Film Jury of the National Film Awards on due date. And if I go by what the director of the film has revealed through her interviews in newspapers and periodicals and also in her Marathi book, ‘Sai – Maaza Kalapravaas’, the major obstacles came from the producer of the film – Basu Bhattacharya, who was known in Hindi film industry as a stingy producer.

Sometime in the later half the 1970s (the actual year is not known), Sai Paranjpye produced a 10-minute documentary film on the visually impaired for Delhi Doordarshan to be telecast on the World Handicap Day. For this purpose, Sai Paranjpye had to visit a blind school to get a feel of how the blind students study and do extra-curricular activities. She had gone to the blind school with the apprehension in her mind as to whether she will be able to emotionally cope up with when she would witness them in the school.  However, she was pleasantly surprised to observe that the blind students were playing on the ground with a lot of excitement as if they were normal students. She also met the principal of the school who was also blind and had done PhD from the University of Wisconsin (USA). He looked savvy and dynamic – same as how a normal person at his position would look. Then an idea occurred to her that visually impaired persons need to be treated like normal persons more than showering pity and sympathy. This idea was translated in her TV documentary.

Sai Paranjpye, however, felt that 10-minute TV documentary was too short to cover the important aspects of what she had witnessed in the blind school. So, she expanded the subject into a telefilm titled ‘Raina Beeti Jaaye’ with Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Sushma Seth which was telecast on Delhi Doordarshan (year is not known but it has to be sometime in the later 1970s.). The film was well received and there were demands for its re-run on Doordarshan. This encouraged her to make a full-length feature film with a story revolving around a couple – one handicapped with blindness and the other a normal person who is emotionally handicapped. She also covered in the script some day-to-day incidences of the blind students. Thus, the idea of ‘Sparsh’ (1980) was born.

Sai Paranjpye had written the script of ‘Sparsh’ keeping in mind Sanjeev Kumar and Tanuja in the lead roles. However, after agreeing to work in the film, at the last moment, Sanjeev Kumar got himself out of the project when he came to know that the film was to be produced by Basu Bhattacharya. Probably, Sanjeev Kumar had a bad experience in working with Basu Bhattacharya in ‘Anubhav’ (1971) and ‘Girha Pravesh’ (1979). In his place, Naseeruddin Shah was roped in. Since the director was not sure about the working chemistry between Naseeruddin Shah and Tanuja, the latter was replaced by Shabana Azmi who had earlier worked with Naseeruddin Shah. When no one was ready to produce the film, Basu Bhattacharya offered to produce the film under his banner, Aarohi Films. The music direction was entrusted to Kanu Roy, the ‘darbaari’ musician of Basu Bhattacharya as Sai Paranjpye calls him. For lyrics, she selected her favourite, Indu Jain.

The film was to be majorly shot at Blind School Relief Association (BSRA) at Delhi. For the first time, Sai Paranjpye personally realised that Basu Bhattacharya, the producer was a stingy person. He had asked all the actors in the film to come for the shooting in their own dresses. Sai Paranjpye had to arrange for the uniform of the blind students in the film with a donation of cloth from a reputed cloth mill of Mumbai. The producer had arranged the free accommodation to all the actors and the technical staff in the hostel of BSRA which were barely comfortable. There are many more interesting anecdotes while making the film which have been described in Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book referred to above in her own witty style.

Because of the subject of the film, a couple of philanthropists had given the donations for making the film which was naturally passed on to the producer of the film. In addition, there were many others who have contributed in the making of the film. In the credit title of the film, the list of such persons is bigger  than the list of the main and supporting actors. In short, my guess is that Basu Bhattacharya did not have to shell out much for the financing of the film as a producer.

It is worth noting that when ‘Sparsh’ (1980) was being made, Basu Bhattacharya was already working on his home production, ‘Griha Pravesh’ (1979). Aspersions were cast on the Aarohi Films that a part of the finance meant of ‘Sparsh’ (1980) was diverted for financing ‘Griha Parvesh’ (1979). So, the finance from the producer was not forthcoming on time for ‘Sparsh’ (1980). By the time the  film’s shooting was completed, Sai Paranjpye realised that she was not only the director but also a de facto production controller.

The film’s shooting was completed and was sent for processing at Bombay lab. But the prints had not come back for a long time. In fact, the Lab had not taken the processing of the film since Basu Bhattacharya had not cleared his dues to the lab on his earlier films. Since Sai Paranjpye wanted to send the film for participating in the National Film Awards, there was an urgency to complete the work on time. The producer of the film was not in a hurry to complete the process. Sai Paranjpye met the owner of Bombay lab and requested to take the processing of the film. She also assured him that  she would  arrange to pay for the processing out of her own resources. Thus, the film was processed, dubbed and a print of the film was sent in time as an entry for National Film Awards, 1980. The film won 3 National Film Awards – the best film, Sai Paranjpye for the best screen-play and Naseeruddin Shah for the best actor. The irony was that Basu Bhattacharya as a producer received the best film award for ‘Sparsh’ (1980) in the hands of the President with a cash prize.

It took another 4 years for ‘Sparsh’ (1980) to get a theatrical release in 1984. The premier of the film was held at Eros theatre in Mumbai. In 1985, the film won 3 Filmfare Awards – The best film and two awards for Sai Paranjpye for best director and the best dialogue. On the one side, the film was critically acclaimed not only in India but also in International film festivals held at London, Cairo, Beijing and Sydney. On the other side, barring Naseeruddin Shah who got all his dues from Basu Bhattacharya after putting much pressure on Basu Bhattacharya, no one including Sai Paranjpye, Shabana Azmi, Kanu Roy, Indu Jain, playback singer Sulakshna Pandit etc. got their dues from the producer for the film. For music director, Kanu Roy, it was his last film who died of cancer few months after the completion of the film.

Incidentally, Sai Paranjpye, in her film ‘Katha’ (1982) named Farooq Shaikh as Basu who was doing a negative character in the film. Is it symbolic or just a co-incidence?

The star cast of ‘Sparsh’ (1980) includes Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi in lead roles supported by Om Puri, Sudha Chopra, Mohan Gokhale, Arun Joglekar etc with scores of blind students.  Ustad Amjad Ali Khan made a guest appearance in the film as a sarod player.  The film was certified by the Censor Board on January 30, 1980. The film is now available for watching on a video sharing platform with English sub-titles and it is in HD. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

The story centres around the two main characters. Anirudh (Naseeruddin Shah) is the principal of a blind school who is handicapped by his blindness. Kavita (Shabana Azmi), a young widow is emotionally handicapped due to death of her husband. She has become reclusive and shuns the society. Her only hobby is the gardening and singing. Her close friend, Manju (Sudha Chopra) tries to bring Kavita out of her shell and suggests to work for the blind school of which her husband is one of the patrons. But she  does not succeed much.

On a party arranged by Manju on the occasion of her marriage anniversary, she invites Kavita who reluctantly agrees to attend. In the party, Kavita sees Anirudh whom she had briefly met near her house. She meets him and gets formally introduced as a principal of a blind school. After getting to know her background, Anirudh requests her to join his blind school as he finds it difficult to get the required sighted personals for the school. After much persuasion by Manju, Kavita joins the blind school.

After joining the blind school, children are happy with Kavita as they get the motherly treatment which was not there earlier. She makes them participate in extra-curricular activities like handicrafts, sports, plays, music etc. Anirudh is happy that the children have been kept busy in constructive activities. Over a period of time, both Anirudh and Kavita come closer and start liking each other’s company. They get engaged.

However, Anirudh starts developing complex of being visually handicapped. He feels that after marriage Kavita would get projected having made a great sacrifice in marrying a handicapped person. He would always feel low in front of Kavita. He may have to depend upon her after the marriage. So, he decides to call-off the engagement. Kavita is shocked by his decision but she diverts her mind by continuing her work among the blind students of the school. She learns Braille, (the language in which blind students read the books) and translate many books in Braille.

One day, Anirudh comes to Kavita’s house and request her to leave the blind school as according to him, it is creating the resentments among the other visually impaired staff and teachers. Actually, this is an excuse. The real reason is that Anirudh finds himself uncomfortable ever since he called off his engagement with Kavita. This time, Kavita tells him that she would not leave the school as it is her need to be with the 200 students of blind school. And if Anirudh forces her to leave, she would revolt against the order. After the few days of this incidence, Kavita, while in the school comes to know that Anirudh has been transferred to another blind school out of Delhi. Kavita tenders her resignation sighting the reason that the school needs Anirudh more than her.

When Manju comes to know about these developments, she goes to meet Anirudh in his office and tells him point blank that he has been seeing the imaginary issues in his marriage out of his complex and ego without giving any consideration the impact of his decision on Kavita’s life who has once again been emotionally shattered with his decision. After Manju’s friendly banter, the realisation comes to Anirudh’s mind. The film ends with a scene showing Anirudh slowly walking towards Kavita’s house.

The highlight of the film is Sai Paranjpye’s crisp screen-play and dialogues which I feel has made the film more interesting to watch with no melodramatic scenes. Naseeruddin Shah’s restrained performance as a blind principal of the school is one of his bests among his acting in the middle-of-the-road films. Before the shooting, he had spent about a fortnight with the blind principal of BSRA, Delhi to observe his mannerism and conduct. One can observe in the film that Sai Paranjpye has not shown him as blind man in a conventional way which we are used to see in Hindi films. He looks like a normal sighted man. It is only his mannerism in talking, walking, picking up of things etc which gives an impression of a blind man.

The title of the film ‘Sparsh’ is very apt which literally mean ‘touch’. But in a broader sense, it means ‘feeling’ which is the essence of the film. I will highly recommend the readers of this Blog to watch the film, preferably in one seating if not already seen.

‘Sparsh’ (1980) has 3 songs, all written by Indu Jain and sung by Sulakshna Pandit. The songs have been set to music by Kanu Roy. I am presenting the first song ‘Geeton Ki Duniya Mein Sargam Hain Hum’ sung by Sulakshna Pandit and chorus. In audio clip, there is an additional stanza. Overall, it is an inspirational song.

With this song, ‘Sparsh’ (1980) make a debut in the Blog.

Blog Day :

Sai Paranjpye has so far directed 8 feature films in Hindi. She has written story and script for all these films. Each of these films has some interesting background as to what prompted her to make those films. In this article, I am covering her film ‘Saaz’ (1997) which was produced by Amit Khanna under the banner ‘Pulse Films’ of the Plus Channel of which he was the managing director during 1989-2000.

Sometime in 1995-96, Plus Channel decided to produce some ‘middle-of-the-road’ films. Directors like Shyam Bengal, Basu Chatterjee, Sudhir Mishra, Aruna Raje, Gautam Ghosh and Sai Paranjpye were enlisted to direct  such genre of films which resulted in the release of films, ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996), ‘Gudgudee’ (1997), ‘Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi’ (1996), ‘Bhairavi’ (1996), ‘Gudia’ (1997) and ‘Saaz’ (1997), respectively.

Shabana Azmi had worked with Sai Paranjpye in ‘Sparsh’ (1980) and ‘Disha’ (1990). As per Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book, ‘Sai – Maaza Kalapravaas’ (2016), one day Shabana came to her with a proposal on behalf of Plus Channel to direct a film with a woman-oriented story in which she would like to work. Sai Paranjpye accepted the proposal. The subject of sibling rivalry in the professional fields had attracted Sai Paranjpye but she had not thought of making a film on the subject. With this proposal, she thought as to why not make a film on sibling rivalry.

We are aware that there have been many instances of sibling rivalries – be in epics, history, business, media, industrial houses etc in India where there was thin line of difference between the professional and personal rivalries. According to Sai Paranjapye, sibling rivalry of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle is unique in the sense that their personal relationship by and large has remained intact over the years in the midst of their professional rivalry. And Sai Paranjpye wanted to bring this uniqueness in the film.

When Sai Paranjpye worked on the script of the film, she realised that the film was leaning towards making of a biopic on Asha Bhosle. She felt uncomfortable to make a film on such a script involving the personal lives of the siblings. Furthermore, she has no acquaintance with both the sisters.  The idea of making a film depicting Asha Bhosle was, therefore, dropped. However, in the revised script, the main theme of two playback singing sisters were kept in mind with some twists in the stories just to segregate her story from the real life story of Lata and Asha Bhosle. However, a couple of events which actually happened during the lives of  Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar were incorporated as they were in the public domain, written by those who had witness those events.

The star cast of ‘Saaz’ (1997) included Shabana Azmi, Aruna Irani, Parikshit Sahani, Raghuveer Yadav, Ayesha Dharker, Zakir Hussain, Amar Talwar, Brijbhushan Sahani, Bhupen Hazarika etc. The story, script and dialogues were written by Sai Paranjpye who also directed the film. The film was mostly shot around Mumbai. Some last part of the film were shot in Seychelles.

The film was certified by the Censor Board on 31-12-1996. But film failed to get release in theaters. The reason is stated to be the ban put by the Theater Owners Association on the exhibition of films produced by Plus Films due to the non-payment of arrears of rent from Plus Channel to some theater owners. I am not aware whether the film was released in the theater after this ban. Probably, the film got released later on TV.  It was only after reading some parts of the script of the film published verbatim in Sai Paranjpye’s Marathi book referred to above that made me to watch the film. I am pleasantly surprised to note that she has handled the theme of sibling rivalry of playback singing sisters very delicately and objectively. There are some poignant moments between the two sisters which are very heart-touching.

The film’s story has been told in a flash-back mode during Bansi’s (Shabana Azmi)’s sessions with a psychiatrist played by Parikshit Sahani. She needed this treatment as she has lost the will to sing after the death of Hemang Desai (Zakir Hussain) with whom she was in love and would have married him. In all her sessions, Bansi reveals events from her childhood to playback singing career as to how she was always played second fiddle to her elder sister. How she broke the relationship with her didi for 10 years due to snatching of her chance to sing on India’s Independence Day at Delhi. But after the sudden death of her elder sister, Bansi feels guilty of depriving  her elder sister of spending time with her daughter.  Towards the end of the film, Bansi gets a good news that her daughter has won the award as a promising playback singer. This pleasant news makes Bansi to sing live in front of the audience in Seychelles. The tape of her singing is sent to psychiatrist who comes at the airport to receive her and announces that she does not need any more treatment. So his relationship with Bansi as a doctor and a patient is over. Instead, he wants now to be her friend. The films end with both them walking together out of the airport.

In my view, this film is not one of the best among the films Sai Paranjpye has directed. Probably, in trying to make the film different from that of the sibling rivalry of Lata and Asha Bhosle, too many characters were introduced. As a result, about last one hour of film does appear some disconnect from the first part of the film which has some brilliant stamp of Sai Paranjpye. However, I feel that she has succeeded in creating sympathy of the audience for the younger sister without their malice towards the elder one.

In keeping with the subject of the story, ‘Saaz’ (1997) has as many as 11 songs (including a multiple version song). Songs are written by Javed Akhtar which have been set to music by 4 music directors – Ustad Zakir Hussain, Bhupen Hazarika, Raj Kamal and Yashwant Deo. The reason given by Sai Paranjpye for multiple music directors is that since sisters are playback singers working with different music directors, the songs in the film should reflect the different style of music direction. Two of the music directors, Ustad Zakir Hussain and Bhupen Hazarika also acted as music directors in the film.

Out of the 11 songs of the film, 3 songs have been covered in the Blog, all by Peevesie’s Mom. I am presenting the 4th song from the film which is a multiple version song. The song is “Baadal Ghumad Badh Aaye”. The male version of the song is sung by Suresh Wadkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy sings the female version. Both the versions of the song are set to music by Yashwant Deo in Raag Megh-Malhar. In the credit titles of the film, only Javed Akhtar’s name appears as a lyricist. But in reality, both the versions of the song have been written by Sai Paranjpye. There is an anecdote as to why Sai Paranjpye had to write the lyrics of the song as revealed by her in her Marathi book referred to above.

Javed Akhtar has written all the songs except the one under discussion which was last to be written. Despite repeated reminder, Javed Akhtar could not write the song. Yashwant Deo who was to set the song to music had booked the recording room and taken the dates of Suresh Wadkar and Kavita Krishnamurthy. All the musicians were also booked for the date of recording. Now only two days had left for the recording of the song but both the version of song’s lyrics was not yet ready. Just one day before the song recording date, it came to light that Javed Akhtar has gone to Khandala with a film producer. The cancellation of recording of the song would have entailed a huge loss and also the shooting schedules would have been affected entailing further loss.

Yashwant Deo mentioned to Sai Paranjpye that even if he gets the song in the morning of the song recording date, he can manage somehow to complete the rehearsals and record the song at the appointed time at noon. Sai Paranjpye came home at night and completed the lyrics of two versions of the song, foregoing her sleep. In the morning, she handed over the lyrics to Yashwant Deo and recording of the songs took place as schedule.

On return from Khandala on the next day, Javed Akhtar was shocked to learn that the songs have already been recorded. He got annoyed on Sai Paranjpye.  After 3-4 days, an executive from Plus Films came to her asking for her lyrics which Javed Akhtar wanted to read. He took lyrics to Javed Akhtar. There was no further development which meant that Javed Akhtar had no issue with the lyrics. On this issue, Shabana Azmi remained neutral.

Javed Akhtar won the National Film Award for the best lyrics in ‘Saaz’ (1997).

It is not an easy task for a novice to write lyrics based on Hindustani classical raags. The choice of words shows that Sai Paranjpye has hold over Sanskritised Hindi. For the first time, I have heard the word kanakalankrit bhor (dawn of golden colour). While the male version of the song is reflective of the onset of the rains, the female version of the song signals the end of the rains and the sun is shining giving a dawn of hope. This is symbolic for the resurgence of playback singing career of Bansi (Shabana Azmi) after she lost her will to sing.

Suresh Wadkar version of the song is pictuirsed on Raghuveer Yadhav who has played the role of a father of singing sisters, Mansi and Bansi. The picturization of the song is based on a true story in the life of Dinanath Mangeshkar who had gone to the house of Vishram Bedekar (Marathi and Hindi film director) in the midnight, drenched under heavy rains to borrow money to quench his thirst for alcohol. Bedekar taunted him by saying that it did not behove well for such a great artist to beg for money. Dinanath Mangeshkar retorted by impromptu singing a bandish in Raag Megh-Malhar and after completing the bandish, he took money from Bedekar as a present for his rendering.

Enjoy both the version of the songs in the backdrop of the approaching monsoon season.

“Parvarish”(1977) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films, Bombay. This movie had Shammi Kpoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Nitu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Kadar Khan, Amjad Khan, Dev Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Hina Kausar, Master Ratan, Master Tito, Chand Usmani, Sheikh, Bhushan Tiwari, Viju Khote, Tom Alter, Yusuf, Meena, Baby Shalu, Moolchand etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised on Shabana Azmi and Nitu Singh who play pickpockets on the streets of Bombay.While Nitu Singh was a natural in such a role, Shabana Azmi was a total misfit in this role. So movie makers rightly avoided goving her similar non serious roles in future.
