Hi,

Amitabh is not seen in this movie. He was in the cast initially and i think did a few shots too. Hrishida had wanted a new face for the hero and had to cast Sumit Sanyal (correction)since Anand got released earlier.

FYI

Masoom (1982)

Huzoor is kadar bhi na itra ke chaliye
Khule aam aanchal na lehra ke chaliye

Koi manchala gar pakad lega aanchal
Zara sochiye aap kya keejiyega
Laga de agar badh kar zulfon mein kaliyan
To kya apni zulphein jhatak deejiyega...

Badi dil nasheen hain hasee ki ye ladiyan
Ye moti magar na bikhraya keejye
Uda ke na le jaye jhonka hawa ka
Lachakta badan yun na lehraya keejye

Bahut khoobsurat hai har baat lekin
Agar dil bhi hota to kya baat hoti
Likhi jaati phir dastaan-e-mohabbat
Ek afsane jaisi mulakat hoti


Sophisticated flirting... gorgeous song and superb lyrics... The affluent buisness man Naseer is partying at a close friend's(Saeed Jaffrey) house and they are both slightly drunk reminscing about their youth. They sing together teasing Shabana(Naseer's wife) who is both amused and annoyed... note the subtle interplay of moods in the song. Shekhar Kapoor, when he manages to finish any movie makes it so nuanced, in the case of Masoom, I find it superior to the original book, Man, Woman and Child.

Gulzar is superb in his use of "aap" ...remember his "Aap ki aankhon Mein kuch...and aap ki badmashiyan." The song moves forward in suggestive playful threats, that flatter the girl...umm....as long as it is not realised wink2.gif.

Koi manchala gar pakad lega aanchal
Zara sochiye aap kya keejiyega
Laga de agar badh kar zulfon mein kaliyan
To kya apni zulphein jhatak deejiyega...


When finally Shabana is annoyed, note the bantering, beautiful lines...

"Bahut khoobsurat hai har baat lekin
Agar dil bhi hota ko kya baat hoti..."


Note the use of tabla, unusual always for Pancham, with the wonderful guitar and is that a santoor in the pauses? I wonder if Bhupendra also played the guitar for the song.

Check out the vid... saw it after a long time... it has not dated one little bit.

Lekin(1991)


Kesariya baalma, o ri
Bawri bole log
Na main jiuti na mariyo main
Birha mharo rog re
Bawri bole log, log re...

Chadte din ki aanch batorun
Til til, til til sab jal jaun
Dhalte sanjh ki rakh kuredun
Ret mein sab ral jaye, sab ral jay
Na mil payi na bichadi main
Kaiso ye sanjog re
Bawri bole log re...

Maaru thal ki laambi chhaiyyan
Nis din, nis din kuch likh jaun
Mero sandeso koi suna jo
Jis ko wo, jis ko wo, dikh jaye
Preet ko dekhen nagri wale
Peed na dekhen log re
Bawri bole log re...


The song (based on 'rag' maand) plays with the opening credits of the film and sets its tone. A soul trapped between life and death, unable to escape.... "Na main jevti na mariyo main/birha mharo rog re/bawri bole log." And the last stanza captures the poetry of the entire movie...in the long shadows of the desert, I write something everyday... if someone could hear my message they would see it... "Preet ko dekhen nagri wale/peed na dekhen log re," they do not see the pain behind the romance... the entire movie is about this, a soul trapped in pain, and the man who relives that experience entrapped by it in his turn...

Love this movie...it is a confused hotch potch of all kinds of theories of parapsychology, rebirth and ghost literature. But it works...or, at for me, it did. It is a movie full of implausible suggestions, but they are so evocative that they hold you enthralled, enriched by a rather barren, alien landscape of sharply etched sandunes, a gorgeous Dimple, holding you with her pain-filled eyes, those fascinating songs and a story that comes alive through Gulzar's dialogues that are a wierd mix of modern pragmatism and extreme romanticism.

Vinod Khanna is a government officer in the archeological department, who is fascinated with antiques. The movie begins with him fiddling with an old lock and key forgetting everything in his concentration. He is sent to a remote village in Rajasthan to evaluate and restore an old building, and on the train he is cautioned by a traveller not to cut his nails... it invites ghosts, he warns Khanna. The next shot has Dimple who seems to have arrived from nowhere in his compartment and who disappears rather mysteriously. (yes, I know, typical bhoot elements of hindi films... but you have to see Dimple's expression and that train as it pulls to a stop at a remote station in the middle of the night...I am reminded so strongly of those old days when we would travel as students and the train would sometimes stop at a remote station in the middle of the night and we would get glimpses of places we would never see again.)

The next shot is sharply realistic, he meets up with an old college friend (Amjad Khan) who is the local big wig, an IAS officer who is pretty much in charge of the village. Vinod Khanna stays at at the guest house and at Amjad's place, the casual scenes thrown in between their interactions... reveal so much detail. Gulzar, quietly shows a Hindu-Muslim couple, and the perfect harmony in which they live. Amjad reads his namaz and Bina Rai(?) is heavily decked up as a traditional Hindu married woman sporting a big bindi. Wish the movie had more of Amjad, he is lives the role of an IAS officer in a small village, who is familiar with the territory and is experienced in handling difficult situations...It is such a non-dramatic role which Amjad plays with an extremely nuanced ease.

to be contd.
