Saat Saath
Musings & Amusings

With threads on the "Muse & Music", "Three Reigning Queens", and "One of a Kind" in steady progress, I thought I will divert my attention to some other actors of the last half of the last century whose work has resulted in some great music. I received feelers from several members to start something like this, even though not at this scale. With these thoughts in mind, I have selected to look into the works of seven actors. These are:

Amitabh Bachchan
Dharmendra
Jeetendra
Manoj Kumar
Raaj Kumar
Rajendra Kumar
Sunil Dutt


Between them they made nealy 1200 movies. Starting today, I will post albums from their movies, probably one for each day. I happen to have CDs of most of this work, but may need occasional help. The Forum members have been gracefully great in cooperating. Thank you for all your suport. I am hoping I will continue to get similar support for this thread as well.

Now let us look at the individual filmographies of these actors ...

Amitabh Bachchan - "The Angry Young Man"

Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most significant personalities of the Indian cinema. He was very popular during 70’s and 80’s and later successfully revived his career starting in 2000. He proved to be one of the most resilient individuals.

During the height of his popularity he almost died in a freak accident performing his own stunt for a movie. After recovering, he saw his fortunes decline. He started his own production company and saw his wealth vanish on some foolish endeavors. Then suddenly, like phoenix rising from ashes, in 2000, he was back with a bang. He made waves on TV as a host of a popular game show. He started acting his age in several notable and successful movies. At one point, it appeared that in early 2000’s he was in almost every movie that was coming out of Mumbai.

Introduced by the great K.A. Abbas in the movie “Saat Hindustani” in 1969, initially he struggled to get a foothold in the industry. His fortunes changed with “Zanjeer” in which he portrayed the role of an angry young man. This established his persona and many hugely successful movies came with this trait of the actor at its core.

He won several awards during an illustrious career that includes three National awards and 12 Filmfare awards. He was elected as the star of the millennium by a British magazine that was open to all professional stars of not only present days but bygone days as well.

Amitabh entered briefly into politics. After winning an important election, he resigned from the job. He acted in over 200 movies in a career spanning 40 years. Here is his part 1 of his filmography …

Dharmendra - "The He Man"

Dharmendra entered into movies via a talent contest. His rugged looks and easy going nature made him one of very likeable stars in the film industry. Noted more for good looks than histrionics, once established as an actor he was in very much demand until very late in his career. But it wasn’t without struggle in his early and formative years. He made his acting debut with the film “Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere” in 1960. But, it was Bimalda’s “Bandini (1963)” that brought him recognition as an actor. After that he never looked back.

He entered politics and won a parliamentary seat. He is on record for not attending a single session.

Dharmendra never won any awards for movies he was in. He acted in over 250 movies in a career spanning 47 years. Here is his first part of the filmography …

Jeetendra – The “Jumping Jack”

Jeetendra, nicknamed as “Jumping Jack” for his dancing skills came into movies almost by accident. His family was in the business that dealt with imitation jewelry. While delivering some of the jewelry to the venerable Shantaram, who was making “Navrang (1959)” at that time, he was offered to act as a double for the leading lady of that movie, Sandhya. That he did. It eventually led to his debut as a hero in Shantaram’s “Geet Gaya Pattharon Ne” in 1964.

It was “Farz” in 1967, an imitation of a James Bond movie, that gave him an opportunity to do dancing for some of the songs. The movie was a huge hit and he became a favorite with producers from South in which he played almost the same role over and over again. Surprisingly, most of these movies were huge hits.

Jeetendra never won any awards for the films he was in. He acted in over 200 movies in a career spanning 45 years. Here is part 1 of his filmography …

Manoj Kumar - "Mr. Bharat"

Manoj was a man of many talents. Besides being an actor, he was a producer, director, editor, story, screenplay, dialogue, and lyric writer. Because he made several movies with patriotic themes and played the role whose name always was “Bharat”, he was nicknamed as “Mr. Bharat”.

While growing up he idolized Dilip Kumar. After graduating from school, he decided to enter into the movie industry. He changed his name to Manoj Kumar after the name of the character Dilip played in the movie “Shabnam” in 1949.

Manoj made his debut in a small role in “Fashion” in 1957. But the movie established him as a bonafied star was “Hariyali Aur Raasta” released in 1962.

Manoj won several Filmfare awards in various categories; Best Picture, Best Director, Best Story, Best Dialogue, and Best Actor. Quite an accomplishment. He has acted in less than 60 movies in a career spanning 40 years. Here is his filmography …
swarapriya
Raaj Kumar - The "Jaani" Man

Raaj Kumar made his debut as an actor in a small role in 1952 in “Rangili”. He appeared in several movies after the debut but mostly went unnoticed. Things changed with Mehboob Khan’s masterpiece “Mother India” released in 1957. He had a major supporting role and his performance was critically praised.

Raaj was famous for dialogue delivery that became his trademark. He played all types of roles that came along his way.

His son Puru, who had several problems with law, tried unsuccessfully to become an actor.

Raaj won Filmfare awards as the Best Supporting Actor a couple of times. He acted in over 70 movies in a career spanning 43 years. Here is his filmography …
swarapriya
Rajendra Kumar - The "Jubilee Hero"

Rajendra Kumar made his debut in a bit role in 1950 in the film “Jogan” which starred Nargis and Dilip Kumar. In the beginning of his career he tried to emulate Dilip, in acting, mannerisms, and dialogue delivery. He even started combing like him. Soon he found his own groove with Mehboob Khan’s “Mother India”, released in 1957. But it was “Goonj Uthi Shehnai” made in 1959 that established him as a star in his own right.

In 60’s and early 70’s his star had a meteoric rise. Almost every film he made was a jubilee hit. Apparently at one point, he had seven jubilee films, all running at the same time. This earned him the nickname “Jubilee Hero”.

Like many other stars, his star status declined by mid 1970’s. Then he was back in form at the end of 70’s by playing more mature roles starting with “Saajan Bina Suhaagan (1978)”.

Rajendra produced and directed few movies. He tried to launch his son Kumar Gaurav as an actor but wasn’t successful.

Rajendra never won any wards for the movies he was in though was nominated a few times. He acted in nearly 100 movies in a career spanning 48 years. Here is his filmography …

Sunil Dutt - The "Gentleman Actor"

Sunil Dutt was a successful radio announcer for Radio Ceylon Hindi programs. He made his film debut in 1955 with “Railway Platform”. Couple of years later, he had a major breakthrough as an actor with Mehboob Khan’s “Mother India” which proved to be a fertile ground for many aspiring actors. The very next year he married Nargis, who played his mother in “Mother India”.

Sunil was a close friend of writer Agha Jani Kashmiri, who was instrumental in bringing Nargis to the movies. They collaborated in many movies together.

He made history by producing and directing a one-actor movie called “Yaadein” in 1964. He produced many movies and directed a few. His son Sanjay is also a popular actor.

When his wife Nargis passed away, he set up an organization called “Nargis Dutt Foundation” that helps raise money for cancer research.

He was elected to congress many times and served as a cabinet minister.

Sunil won the Filmfare award as the Best Actor a couple of times in his career. He acted in over 100 movies in a career spanning nearly 50 years. Here is his part 1 of the filmography …

(Amitabh) Saat Hindustani (1969)

This is the movie in which Amitabh made his acting debut. It was made by the great K.A. Abbas. Amitabh won the National Award as the Best Newcomer for his portrayal in the movie.

Unfortunately, I have only one song from this movie. I am hoping that other members can come forward to help share the missing songs shown in red italics in the table below.

Here is the one song I have ...

(Jeetendra) Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne (1964)

Jeetendra made his debut with this Shantaram's musical. It has several beautiful numbers and one wonders why Ramlal gave music to only few Hindi films, that too only for Shantaram. I'm not sure how popular he was in Marathi movies.

By the way this story was a clever adaptation of a sculptor named "Jakkanna". Earlier this was made in Telugu as "Amara Shilpi Jakkanna". I will upload these songs later in this section.

Amara Shilpi Jakkanna (1964) - A Telugu Film

This movie, a historically true story of a famous sculptor, is also the basis of Shantaram's "Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne" that uses social backdrop. I am uploading songs of these in back-to-back two posts.

The song "Ee Nallani Rallalo" was a poem written many years earlier by the famous poet CNR during his college days. It was published in his college magazine titled as "Ramappa".

Interestingly the time duration for the whole is less than the parts. Also there is a song here, "Dekh Tere Bhagwaan" which is a take on the hit song from "Nastik" written and sung by Kavi Pradeep, "Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan".

Now for the songs ...

(Amitabh) Bombay Talkie (1970)

Apparently Amitabh had a brief role in this movie where he is seen in a funeral procession. It is Usha Uthup's hip singing that gives a lift to the songs with able assists from Asha, Rafi, and Kishore where Shankar & Jaikishan provide the music.

Both instrumentals I am uploading are interesting. The title music starts with a song in the background you can hear briefly and then it drowns in the razzle dazzle of Mumbai street noise. The other instrumental is a beautiful piece that is based on Uthup's "Good Times" song. The instrumental music is nearly 30 seconds longer in duration compared to the actual song but is real pleasing to listen to.

Here are the songs ...

(Jeetendra) Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti (1967)

After appearing in a bit role in Shantaram's "Stree (1961)" and later in a supporting role in "Sehra (1963)", finally Mumtaz made the richly deserving grade to be Shantaram's leading lady in this film. This was also Jeetendra's second movie with Shantaram. Interestingly, music director Satish Bhatia makes use of Suman Kalyanpur in three solos and a duet. I don't know when Suman sang this many songs in an important movie. The album also has one of my favorite solos of Mukesh, "Hari Hari Vasundhara". Great lyrics. Beautiful composition. Soul stirring singing.

Here are the songs from this beautiful album ...
