(Majrooh) Dastak (1970)

This was noted Urdu writer Rajinder Singh Bedi’s maiden directorial venture. He also produced the film based on his own story, originally published in early 40s. Even though Bedi Saab directed only a handful of films, his recognized best work was as a multiple-award winning dialogue writer of several films of Bimal Roy and Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

The film also introduced Rehana Sultan in the lead. She was a graduate of the Film Institute and was the first one from the Institute to land a major role in Bombay Filmworld. She garnered the National Award for Best Actress for her brilliant performance. She also had another important film that very same year. 1970’s “Chetna” dealt with lives of prostitutes. This back-to-back art films projected a certain image of Rehana and she could never capture the imagination of filmmakers to offer her roles in the mainstream commercial films.

Sanjeev Kumar, who was the hero of the film, also won the honors of landing on the Nation Award for Best Actor. Kamal Bose, who was the cinematographer, won the National Award for the Best Black & White Photography. Hrishida, who was the editor of the film, won the Filmfare Award as the Best Editor.

Besides fine acting, and rich lyrics penned by Majrooh Saab, the film is best known for its unforgettable compositions. Every song from the film is a piece of gem. The treasure is in the listening pleasure of mastery of instruments used in these songs, especially a blend of various instruments such as veena, sitar, and gentle rhythm of tabla beats that create a lasting mesmerizing experience. The movie also won yet another National Award, a first for its music composer Madan Mohanji that he richly deserved.

There are only a few songs in the film. The song “Maai Ri” has a version by Mohanji himself. When he was ready to sit down and compose this song with Lataji lending her voice, he got a message stating that Lataji is ill and will not be able to attend her recording session. Then Madanji went ahead and sang the song himself to guide Lataji how he perceived it. Later on after Mohanji passed away some of CD collections honoring him included this song. I am uploading it in its entirety here.

A note about the ghazal from the film “Hum Hain Maata-E-Koocha”. This song was not written for the film. It came from one of Majrooh Saab’s published book of his ghazals. In some gathering Madanji heard Majrooh Saab recite this ghazal and decided to include it in the film. The original ghazal apparently is much longer than what we hear in the film. Out of 7 stanzas Madanji selected only three; 1, 3, and 7. There is a brief audio clip with Madanji singing beginning of this ghazal. It is available on his web site. Because of its poor quality, I am not uploading it here.

Here are all the songs and a few music clips from the film, in two back-to-back posts, starting with the next post, with Majroohji and Madanji collaborating and completely captivating your time…
