(Shakeel) Aadmi (1968)

This movie was based on the 1962 Tamil hit, “Aalayamani”. Tamil actor Veerappa who produced this movie went nearly broke trying to make this movie. After it became a huge hit in Tamil, it was remade in Telugu as “Gudi Gantalu” in 1964 and barely scraped its investment. This should have given a clue to Veerappa. Nevertheless, he decided to make it in Hindi and signed Dilipji to play the main lead. Dilipji was one of those actors who demanded a huge salary to act. Convinced that this movie will work in Hindi, Veerappa decided to sign Dilipji by agreeing to all of his demands.

After several years in production, mainly because of the financial difficulties of the producer, it was finally released in 1968 and proved to be a dud at the box office and was a financial disaster for its producer.

Ever so dependable Dilip Saab was not into his character. It was a feeble effort on his part. This must be one of his indifferent and weak performances. Manoj had a major role in the film. In real life he idolized Dilip Kumar while growing up. He even changed his name to Manoj after Dilip’s character in “Shabnam” made in 1949. It was one of his lifelong ambitions to work with Dilip Saab. This film offered him that opportunity. In a supporting role, Manoj’s performance was passable.

For many years I was under the impression that Naushadji’s music was perhaps a tad better compared to his last outing with "Ram Aur Shyam" but still feeble. In the last few years I changed my mind about it. I think Naushadji had composed beautiful songs. All songs are very appealing. Of course song of the album is “Aaj Puraana” by Rafi Saab. But both Lataji’s solos are beautifully composed and sung only the way she can. Interestingly Naushadji originally composed the song “Kaisi Haseen” with Rafi Saab and Talatji. But under pressure from Manoj, Naushadji yielded and recomposed the same song with Mahendra Kapoor and Rafi Saab. Until his death, for this “transgression”, apparently Talatji never forgave Naushad Saab.

I am uploading all songs and several instrumentals in three back-to-back posts. The first two posts contain the songs from the film. The third post contains several instrumentals of the song “Aaj Puraana”. Here is the first set of songs...

(Anand Bakshi) Barood (1976)

This was one of the earlier films of Rishi Kapoor who was riding high in popularity during those days. Parmod Chakravorty, who directed the film, originally considered Dharmendra for the role. He decided against it for a younger hero. Incidentally Dharmendra along with Hema Malini appear as guests in the film.

This film introduced a new leading lady in Shoma Anand. Even though the movie was a modest success, Anand made only few notable films, but today is still active in television.

The film has several veteran film actors headed by Ashok Kumar. When Dadamoni’s character is introduced we see him fighting, shooting, fencing, and other physically acrobatics activities one has never seen him do before.

The movie was shot extensively in many locations outside India. Some of these include New York, Zurich, Madrid, and Paris. It is an action oriented film that included all kinds of chases borrowed many from various Bond films. Because of this the background music played a big role in the film. I am including some of these music clips in the second post.

There are only a few songs in the film. In the first post I am including all these. Mukesh makes a rare appearance for Burmanda. But the standout song of the movie is Kishoreda’s unforgettable “Matlab Jo Samjhe”. A beautifully sung utterly engrossing song filled with emotion and pathos.

Here is this and other songs from the film…

(Hasrat Jaipuri) April Fool (1964)

Shankar & Jaikishan made sure that this day, April 1, celebrated as an All Fool's Day around the world, will be remembered by the Indian music lovers forever by composing some of their beautiful and memorable music for this film. Subodh Mukherjee, who introduced Saira Banu in "Junglee" in 1960, is back here with another winner with her in this film, "April Fool".

I am uploading songs from this film in two back-to-back posts. Please note that the music clip “Pool Aquatics Show” in the first post is included in the song “Aa Gale Lag Jaa”. The beginning of this song is same as the “Pool” music. If you are downloading this song, then there is no need to download the music clip.

Here are this and other songs from this popular album starting in the first post...

(Majrooh) Baraat (1960)

This movie tells the story of simple folks in a small village with a mixture of usual share of many good poor people and a few bad rich people. Shakila plays a poor girl who is the object of affection of both the parties. In between there is an usual dose of songs with Mukesh’s “Muft Hue” being a standout. Here is this and other songs from this film…

(Rajinder Krishan) Miss India (1957)

This movie came the same year as Mehboob Khan’s magnificent homage to undying spirit of womanhood “Mother India”. That movie also starred Nargis in the title role who gave the performance of a lifetime. When compared to that film this movie simply pales. “Miss India” also starred among others I.S. Johar, who also wrote its story, the screenplay, the dialogues, and was in-charge of its direction. Comedians Mehmood and Rajendra Nath have brief roles as goonies to Pran. For nearly half of the movie Nargis is donned as a young man. That precludes any chance of exploiting her talent as a great actress she was. Burmanda composed its music which was just about average coming from him.

Here are the songs from this film…

(Shailendra) Kanhaiya (1959)

This film was directed by the character actor Om Prakash from his own story for his producer brother Pachhi. It had great music by Shankar & Jaikishan. It was shot in beautiful Kashmir. It had the great star pair in Nutan & Raj Kapoor who were coming off the triumphant success they enjoyed with Hrishida’s “Anari” that was released earlier the same year. It seemed like it had all the ingredients to make it a hit. However, the movie was rejected by the audience mainly because of the hodgepodge of a storyline.

The only thing worth remembering about this film was its music. Dattaram was the assistant music director. All of the songs from the film were chartbusters. My favorite of the album is, one of the great songs by Mukeshji, “Mujhe Tum Se Kuchh Bhi Na Chaahiye”. A heart wrenching song with deep pathos. Utterly unforgettable. I am uploading this and other songs from this album in two back-to-back posts.

Here is the first set of songs…

(Shakeel) Baazi (1968)

There is a dance drama in this movie that is based on the story of Snow White. In it Snow White is played by Waheeda. Helen plays the evil stepmother and the wicked witch. There are seven short people playing dwarfs. The music also borrows heavily from the 1939 classic English film “Wizard of Oz” where the dwarfs also double as munchkins. Here is this music piece and other songs from this film…

(Anand Bakshi) Night In London (1967)

Music saves this film from a hackneyed plot and poor direction. Much of the blame lies on an incohesive screenplay. Some of the songs of this movie are good, especially two solos by Rafi Saab, “Ba Hosh-O-Hawaas” and “Nazar Na Lag Jaaye”. Also the background music is excellent. LP makes extensive use of Jazz instruments, notably a trumpet, for most of the important scenes. I am uploading above songs and others plus several music clips in two back-to-back posts.

Here is the first set of songs…
