Year 1969

Honesty stays

As honest as it gets: When ace comedian I S Johar was called on stage to present an award, he complained that Filmfare had done him "unendurable justice" by never giving him an award though his family considered him the best comedian in the world. And that we were adding insult to injury by asking him to present the trophy to a "totally unknown actor called Johnny Walker"!

Shammi Kapoor struck gold with the Best Actor trophy—his only one—for Brahmachari. He won the Best Supporting Actor trophy years later in 1982 for Vidhaata and finally, the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1994.

Waheeda Rehman returned to claim her second Best Actress trophy, for Neel Kamal and Simi Garewal did a repeat performance too, with her second Best Supporting Actress trophy for Saathi. The Best Supporting Actor trophy was taken home by Sanjeev Kumar for Shikar. The Best Screenplay Award was instituted this year, with Nabendu Ghosh bagging it for his adaptation of Sarat Chandra's Majhli Didi. And to top it all, there was the beautiful-as-a-dream Hema Malini performing a dramatic Mohini Attam.

The Sizzling 70s

Year 1970

Cabaret and Ray

Glitzy costumes, racy music, thunder thighs, drum rolls... no, it wasn't an item number, just cabaret making its debut on the filmfare stage. However dancer-actress Padma Khanna’s sizzling number, choreographed by Gopi Krishna, didn't go down too well with the audience. The applause alas, was ekdum thanda.

The taaliyan were much louder when Chief Guest Satyajit Ray handed protégée Sharmila Tagore her first Best Actress Award (Aradhana). Sharmila was happily pregnant (with Saif) and husband Mansur Ali Khan was there too, cheering her on.
Incidentally, it took years of pursuing Satyajit Ray to get him to the event. When he finally relented, he admitted, "One of the reasons why I was reluctant to conic was that I would feel out of my depth on such a star-studded occasion as this."

Another first this year was yodelling king Kishore Kumar's trophy for Best Male Playback Singer (Roop tera mastana in Aradhana). Bade bhaiyya Ashok Kumar was thrilled because he'd won the Best Actor Award (Aashirwad) as well. Meanwhile, Yash chopra collected his second Best Director trophy for Ittefaq, though the Best Film went to Shakti Samanta's Aradhana.

And there was one farewell speech. The Filmfare trophy bid an adieu of sorts to Lata Mangeshkar, who won for Aap mujhe achche (Jeene Ki Raah) and decided to opt out of the awards race to make way for new talent.

Year 1971

Bole to, Shatru

The quip-a-minute duo of Shatrughan Sinha and Asrani compered the show since Filmfare regular David was ill. When producer-director Devendra Goel told Shatru, "I've just seen your work in Chetna and liked it very much. I am going to offer you a film soon," the actor shot back, "Thank you for the announcement."

The singing honours went to Meena Kumari, who sang a ghazal, but the acting trophies went to Rajesh Khanna who collected his first for Sachcha Jhutha along with spice queen Mumtaz, who won her first and only acting trophy for her tawaif act in Khilona. (She also won the Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996.)

These were the early days of the parallel cinema and Filmfare recognised the movement by instituting the Critics' Award for Best Film. Director Mani Kaul's experimentative Uski Rod was the (bread) winner.

Year 1972

The Bachchans open a joint account

The crowds were huge and the pressure for invitations so severe (some things don't change!) that funnyman I S Johar admitted: "The Filmfare Awards function has become a sort of a status symbol."

This was a memorable year for oh-so-many reasons. Hrishikesh Mukherjee's unforgettable Anand glittered through the evening. It got Rajesh Khanna his second consecutive Best Actor Award. But a lanky young actor stood up to the reigning superstar with a smouldering performance that got him the first of his many Filmfare trophies. As Amitabh Bachchan took home the Best Supporting Actor Award for Anand, Jaya Bhaduri also won her first trophy—a special one—for her turn in Uphaar. The couple that wins together stays together!

Anand also earned Gulzar his first trophy, that for Best Dialogue. It swept up the Best Film Award for Hrishikesh Mukherjee and N C Sippy too, but the Best Director trophy went to Hrishida's good friend Raj Kapoor for his most ambitious venture, the semi-autobiographical Mera Naam Joker. The movie bombed at the box office, so the trophy offered some consolation to the great showman.

The Kapoor family was in full form this year— Prithviraj Kapoor won a Special Award which grandson Rishi Kapoor accepted on his behalf.

Year 1973

Win, win, Hema

It was a tough year to be a judge. There was Kamal Amrohi's glittering Pakeezah, Ramesh Sippy's breezy Seeta Aur Geeta, Dev Anand's intoxicating Hare Rama Hare Krishna and Manoj Kumar's Be-Imaan.

Hema Seeta-Geeta Malini it was who bagged the Best Actress trophy (her first, for presented to her by Amitabh Bachchan). Zeenat Aman won her first and only Best Supporting Acting trophy, for her third film, Hare Rama Hare Krishna.

However, Be-Imaan proved to be a surprise winner, bagging seven trophies in all, including the Best Film, Best Director (for producer-director Sohanlal Kanwar) and Best Actor trophies for Manoj Kumar. Manoj also won the Best Editor Award for Shor, incidentally.

Year 1974

Jodi No 1

There was so much drama on the stage and off it that the audience didn't know where to look. For one, Simi Garewal's plunging neckline and Zeenat Aman's backless dress created much hungama. Then there were three recently married ultra-glam star couple in focus—Jaya Bhaduri-Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia-Rajesh Khanna and Raakhee-Gulzar. What's more, they all won awards, too!

For the first time, there was a tie for the Best Actress category—the judges couldn't refuse Jaya for Abhimaan or Dimple for Bobby. There was another departure from tradition—this year the judges renamed the Best Supporting category making it An Outstanding Performance In A Parallel Role. The awards went to Amitabh for Namak Haram and Raakhee for Daag. The judges observed that their roles were as important as Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore's. Incidentally, 1976 was the only other year in which the supporting role became the parallel role. Gulzar took home the Best Dialogue trophy for Namak Haraam, Rajesh Khanna bagged a Special Award for his role in Anuraag.

The other scene stealer was Raj Kapoor's popcorn romance Bobby, which got 12 nominations and went on to win five awards. Rishi Kapoor bagged the Best Actor Award. The other awards were Allauddin (Best Sound Recordist), A Rangaraj (Best Art Director) and Narendra Chanchal (Best Playback Singer).

And, oh yes, there was also this film called Zanjeer. Neither Amitabh nor Jaya got any awards for it, but another legendary couple, Salim-Javed, expectedly won the Best Story and Best Screenplay Awards for their work.

Year 1975

A time for tears

"It's like having a baby in one's old age," quipped Kalyanji-Anandji to host David. They'd won their first Filmfare Award, for Kora Kagaz, in a long career of 20 years.

Jaya Bachchan wasn't pregnant but was overcome by emotion all the same and burst into tears when Hrishikesh Mukherjee presented her the Best Actress Award for Kora Kagaz.

Who was pregnant was Dimple (with her second child). She and husband Rajesh Khanna created a stir when they arrived and Rajesh received his third Best Actor trophy (Aavishkar) to an even bigger uproar.

Vinod Khanna won his first and only Best Supporting Actor award for Haath Ki Safai. (His next one was for Lifetime Achievement in 1999.) Other couples were Salim and Javed with their wives, Salma and Honey Irani. Zeenat Aman, sexy and single, was really hot this year—she running a 101-degree fever!

Year 1976

Surprise, surprise!

It was a rocking year with movies like Aandhi, Amanush, Deewaar, Julie, Jai Santoshi Maa, Khushboo, Sanyasi, Julie and Sholay in the race.

Deewaar won seven trophies—Best Film (Gulshan Rai), Best Director (Yash Chopra), Best Actor In A Parallel Role (Shashi Kapoor), Best Story, Screenplay and Dialogue (Salim-Javed), and Best Sound (M A Shaikh). Amitabh Bachchan was nominated for Best Actor in Deewaar but did not win and got the loudest applause when he sportingly handed over the trophy to Sanjeev Kumar for Aandhi.

There were other piquant presenters. Rakesh Roshan handed over the Best Music Director trophy (Julie) to younger brother Rajesh. Helen gave away the Best Dialogue Award to Salim while Shabana Azmi presented Javed the Best story award. Just a coincidence, of course.

It was also a year of surprise winners. Suchitra Sen (Aandhi) and Jaya Bhaduri (Mili) were nominated for Best Actress but Lakshmi (Julie) walked away with the trophy.

And then, Sholay was nominated in nine popular categories—Film, Director, Actor (Sanjeev Kumar), Supporting Actor (Amjad Khan), Comedian (Asrani), Story (Salim-Javed), Music Director (R D Burman), Lyricist (Anand Bakshi-Mehbooba) and Playback Singer (R D Burman-Mehbooba)—but only won a Technical Award for Best Editor. Ouch!

Year 1977

Kabhi Kabhie Khushi

'24th Filmfare Awards Night: We survived the emergency axe' said the headline. And guess who presided over the function—Atal Behari Vajpayee! His speech got him a standing ovation from the audience.

A tribute was paid to Mukesh who died the previous year on August 27, 1976. His son Nitin Mukesh sang the award-winning Kabhi kabhie mere dil mein on stage and also accepted his late father's Filmfare Award (for Kabhi Kabhie) from Raj Kapoor.

Incidentally, Kabhi Kabhie won four trophies in all—Best Music Director for Khayyam, Best Lyrics for Sahir Ludhianvi, Best Singer for Mukesh and Best Dialogue Writer for Sagar Sarhadi.

Raakhee and Sanjeev Kumar walked away with the top acting honours. She won her first Filmfare Award for Tapasya and he got his second Best Actor trophy in a row, for Arjun Pandit.

Meanwhile Gulzar collected his fourth trophy, Best Director for Mausam.

Year 1978

Shaadi Ke Baad

After two Supporting Actor trophies, Amitabh Bachchan finally won the Best Actor trophy for Amar Akbar Anthony to thunderous applause from the audience. Director Manmohan Desai handed Amitabh the trophy on stage. Wife Jaya didn't look in top spirits, but hey, it was only because she had just recovered from jaundice.

Two freshly-wed couples were the centre of attention this year. Vinod Mehra postponed his honeymoon to be there with his one-day-old wife Meena. But Kamal Haasan and Vani Ganapathy outdid them—they came straight from their wedding reception!

Year 1979

Enough, says Asha

After much persuasion, Simi Garewal agreed to compere the show. And whaddya know, her elegant turn was as big a hit as her figure-hugging black gown.

Best Actress Nutan glittered too, in a strapless white gown and a soft fur stole wrapped around her slender shoulders. She won the award for Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki.
Amitabh Bachchan looked dapper as he collected his Best Actor trophy (his second) for his double role in Don.

Seven-time winner Asha Bhosle (Yeh mera dil — Don), following Didi's footsteps, announced her retirement from the Filmfare Awards.

Laxmikant-PyarelaPs tally was just one less than Ashatoi's. They won their sixth Filmfare Award for Best Music in Sargam. They'd won earlier for Dosti, Milan, Jeene Ki Raah, Amar Akbar Anthony and Satyam Shivam Sundaram.

The Offbeat '80s

This was the decade of reality bytes. Of Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil and Naseeruddin Shah and the glory years of art films

Year 1980

It's her evening!

Put this one down to the Kapoor style. "It's nice to be like this together, like one family, meeting once a vear." Shammi Kapoor sighed in 1980. That khandanni quote sums up the spirit in which the stars assemble every year for the Filmfare Awards.

There's competition, yes, but loads of togetherness and apnapan that binds the fraternity. Shammiji had reason to celebrate this year. Brother Shashi Kapoor's off-the-track drama Junoon bagged six awards—Best Film, Best Director, Best Cinematographer, Best Sound Recordist, Best Editor and Best Dialogue. Jennifer Kapoor grabbed attention in her off-shoulder blouse, headband and beads. (Shashi Kapoor stuck to a traditional suit and bow tie.)

Asha Sachdev's plunging neckline caused a flutter too, but hottie Zeenat Aman preferred a sober white salwar suit with her hair in Bo-Derek like curls. Rekha and Zarina Wahab stayed loyal to their southern silks.

Best Actress Java Bachchan (Nauker) arrived to a loud cheer from the crowd. Husband Amitabh decided to let her hog the limelight and even declined to step on stage that year. "It's her evening!" he explained. But then, relented to give the trophy to Jennifer Kapoor.

Vinod Mehra, after his unfortunate separation from wife Meena, came hand-in-hand with Bindiya Goswami, going public with their relationship.

Best Comedian nominee Deven Verrna declared, "Like Lataji and Ashaji, I retired in favour of up-and-coming newcomers and sure enough. Utpal Dutt got it for Golmaal." The laugh riot also got Amol Palekar the Best Actor award.

Year 1981

When rapist turned presenter

The tears mingled with smiles this year. Nargis was deeply missed when chief guest Sunil Dull arrived with their children Sanjay, Namrata and Priya. But life goes on... And who better than Kishore Kumar to get things going? Kishorer, who was scheduled to perform two songs, ended up giving an hour-long performance, with brother Ashok Kumar and son Amit joining in the fun, too. What's more, in an emotional moment, Kishorerda decided to sing one of Mohammed Rafi’s songs instead of his award-winning Hazaar rahein (Thodisi Bewafai). Haan, haan, he brought the house down.

In contrast was the fresh-off-the-rack Deewane pair of Nazia and Zoheb Hassan. singing Aap Jaisa Koi. First-time Best Actress winner Rekha (Khubsoorat) and Best Director Govind Nihalani (Aakrosh) were both away in the US and missed their big day. Hrishikesh Mukherjee, the director, who made it possible for Rekha and also won the Best Film Award, accepted Rekha's trophy on her behalf. Best Actor Naseeruddin Shah (Aakrosh) brought along his mother and fiance Ratna Pathak to share his big day. One scene that raised smiles all around was when Padmini Kolhapure received the Best Supporting Actress trophy (Insaaf Ka Tarazu) from her on-screen rapist Raj Babbar!

Year 1982

Chakra View

There was big-time applause when Rekha gave first-time Best Actress Smita Patil (Chakra) her trophy and an affectionate kiss on her cheek. 'Cos Rekha was nominated for Umrao Jaan herself! Sporting, na?

Incidentally, Naseeruddin Shah got the Best Actor award for Chakra too.
Best Supporting Actor Amjad Khan (Yaarana) brought the house down when asked how he played the horribly wicked villain and the good man with equal ease. "When I play the good man, I am acting, when I play villain, I am myself!" he laughed.
An audio-visual homage was paid to David, Filmfare's long-time compere, who had passed away.

This year, Poonam Dhillon turned compere. Padmini Kolhapure, singer and Deepti Naval, dancer for the evening. Padmini did a great job of singing Yeh galiyan, yeh chaubara (Prem Rog) on stage. Deepti Naval rehearsed continuously for 10 days and was still at it just before going on stage. As for Poonam Dhillon, she almost didn't make it because she was shooting in Manali and the flight timings simply weren't working out. No problem— Ramanand Sagar's production unit shifted base to Kashmir so that she could make it.

Year 1983

Pancham intended

It was celebration mixed with nostalgia as the Filmfare Awards completed 30 years. An audio-visual of the Filmfare journey captured the mood perfectly.

To begin at the beginning, Sarika, scheduled to conduct the foyer interviews, came late because her car broke down en route. She hastily hailed a cab and managed to make it in time, looking stunning in a white skirt and blouse teamed with tribal jewellery.

Hema Malini was not that lucky, though. Hema. who had gone to Chennai the previous night, flew back in the morning so that she could attend the event. But alas, had to cancel out when baby Esha came down with chicken pox.

The competition in the Best Film category was stiff this year. Showman Raj Kapoor finally beat B R Chopra (Nikaah), Ramesh Sippy (Shakti), Sagar Sarhadi (Bazaar) and Subhash Ghai (Vldhaata) to win his third Best Director trophy for Prem Rog, his love story with a message. Son Randhir Kapoor good-humouredly cribbed that he had to miss out on his prime drinking time in the evening because he had to be there to clap for his father!

The Best Actor tussle turned out to be a Dilip Kumar vs Amitabh Rachchan one. Amitabh lost out despite three nominations—for Shakti, Namak Halaal and Bemisal. The other two films nominated, Shakti and Vidhaata, had Dilip saab. The thespian won for the former.

R D Burman, who picked up his first Filmfare trophy for the musical caper Sanam Teri Kasam. started the show with his 70-piece orchestra. Panchamda and Best Playback Singer Kishore Kumar brought the house down with some memorable numbers—Chingari koi bhadke, Sanam teri kasam, Ye dosti hum nahin and Jaana o meri jaana.

Another pair of friends, Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar, who took home the Best Screenplay Award for Shakti, had recently gone their separate ways. However, when Salim spotted an anxious Javed in the foyer, he called out. "Javed saab!" and they shook hands. Ye dosti hum nahin...
