Happy Birthday Sadhana!

02 Sep

My ten favourite Sadhana songs

Today on your 71st birthday, wish you a happy birthday and many more to come, dear Sadhana! Thanks for the beautiful films and moments, which you have gifted us!
Sadhana, one of the Hindi screen’s beautiful leading ladies. She was a trend-setter in fashion, when nobody even knew this word. She was glamorous, beautiful and more importantly talented actress. Given the trend of the 60s, where the frothy musicals reigned supreme, she got ample scope to show her acting talents in variety of films. Bimal Roy, the ace-director cast her in Parakh (1960) and Prem Patra (1964). Raj Khosla made a trilogy of films with her in central roles Woh Kaun Thi? (1964), Mera Saaya (1966) and Anita (1967).

Her thyroid problem led to an eye ailment, which led to her going on a long treatment in the USA, due to which she was missed on many films. Her come-back films were Intequam (1969) and Ek Phool Do Mali (1969) were hits. The 70s even saw her don the cap of the director for Geeta Mera Naam (1974). The changing trends of the 70s saw her take retirement from the silver screen, though the 70s saw the release of delayed films like Amanat (1975), Vandana (1975) and Mehfil (1981). Her last film Ulfat ki Nayi Manzilein, whose music was released in 1968, got released in 1994. In the song here, we see how the film must have been completed with doubles, in the song, baharon se kahenge nazaroon se kahenge, we see only the back of the character played by her.

I have chosen only solo songs from her films and I have restricted myself to one song pro film.

1. o sajana barkha bahaar aayiParakh [1960]
MD: Salil Chowdhury; Lyrics: Shailendra; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

The quintessential rain song! After Love in Simla, this was to be her second release as a leading lady in a film. In Love in Simla she gets transformed from a plain Jane to a glamorous lady. After seeing her glamorous avatar, Bimal Roy nearly wanted to drop her from Parakh, but she managed to convince him to cast her in the role of a village postman’s daughter. This portrayal was a big success and the rest as they say is history.

2. tera mera pyar amarAsli Naqli [1962]
MD: Shankar-Jaikishan; Lyrics: Shailendra; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

Just like in Parakh, she again got a role as a simple working middle-class girl living in a chawl. She plays the character of Renu, who helps the poor by teaching their kids in the evening. Dev Anand plays the heir to a fortune, who forsakes his wealth and goes in search of true love. As is often the case brings thus misfortune to himself and others. Thanks to the tight direction of Hrishikesh Mukherjee it doesn’t become too melodramatic.

3. main to tum sang nain milake haar gayi sajanaManmauji [1962]
MD: Madan Mohan; Lyrics: Rajinder Krishan; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

From one simple girl to the other. Sadhana gets to play a vegetable-seller, living in a slum. The story though revolves more around Kishore Kumar and Naaz, who plays his sister. Sadhana plays Kishore Kumar’s love interest. His habit of telling lies gets on the nerves of his near and dear ones, since they are the ones who suffer more from it. This is Sadhana’s first movie with the musical score by Madan Mohan. They would work together in two more movies.

4. naina barse rimjhim rimjhimWoh Kaun Thi [1964]
MD: Madan Mohan; Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

Woh Kaun Thi was the first in the trilogy of films with Raj Khosla as a director. When I was small, I grew up with the opinion that this must be one fantastic film, since all my aunts were raving about it. But now the general opinion in the blogosphere seems to be against it. I have never seen the film, so I don’t have an opinion, but the songs are great. I was vacillating between naina barse or jo hamne dastan sunayi. Don’t ask me what made me decide for naina barse? Sadhana looks good as a ghost as well!

5. kaun aaya ki nigaahon me chamak jaag uthiWaqt [1965]
MD: Ravi; Lyrics: Sahir; Singer: Asha Bhosle

She is anything but a ghost in Waqt. Charming the heads off of two brothers with her beauty, though to be fair to her she is in love with only one of them. And this very song is the one, which creates the misunderstanding, which makes one of the brother (Raaj Kumar) believe that this song is being sung for him, while it is meant for another one (Sunil Dutt).

6. naino me badra chahe – Mera Saaya [1966]
MD: Madan Mohan; Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

What a seductive number! The second part of the trilogy with Raj Khosla finds Sadhana playing not a ghost this time, but all the same quite an elusive personality. Caught a part of a dacoit gang, she claims to be the wife of a renowned lawyer, who has just lost his wife. How can that be possible? An interesting and enthralling mystery-thriller! Do watch it!

7. kareeb aa yeh nazar phir mileAnita [1967]
MD: Laxmikant-Pyarelal; Lyrics: Raja Mehdi Ali Khan; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

I don’t know what made Raj Khosla change his music director after having such a fruitful association with him. In the third and last part of the trilogy Madan Mohan is replaced by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. They haven’t done a bad job, but I always think, what would have Madan Mohan done.
Sadhana gets to play again a mystery woman, who is dead but not.

8. o mere bairaagi bhanwara – Ishq Par Zor Nahin [1970]
MD: S. D. Burman; Lyrics: Anand Bakshi; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

Sadhana gets the opportunity to be romanced by two men once again. This time by Dharmendra and Biswajeet, who are good friends. Although it looks from the video as if she were playing the elusive lady again, she in fact plays the muse of the engineer-cum-poet character played by Dharmendra. I had read somewhere that Biswajeet produced this film, but imdb credits this to Suresh Saigal.
This is the only Sadhana film, to have music by S. D. Burman.

9. suniye zara dekhiye na – Geeta Mera Naam [1974]
MD: Laxmikant-Pyarelal; Lyrics: Rajinder Krishan; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

The seduction train rolls ahead, and in this song the object of seduction is Feroz Khan. Sadhana’s umpteenth double role. She must be holding the record for maximum double roles in Hindi films. Evidently she plays here the ‘bad’ twin sister, after all good women don’t go about seducing men! By the way, won’t you also like to see a Hindi movie for a change, where both the twins are bad or both are good or both are… whatever!

10. aap ki inayaten aap ke karam – Vandana [1975]
MD: Ravi; Lyrics: Asad Bhopali; Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
After having played Balraj Sahni’s wife (mind you a platonic wife) in Ek Phool Do Mali, she gets the chance to romance his son Parikshit Sahni, who in the publicity during the launch of the film was called Ajay Sahni.

Sadhana was to have starred in a film called Picnic with Guru Dutt, which got shelved after his death. A song has survived, which is quite nice. It is kitna rangeen hai ye chaand sitaaron ka samaa. Another film with Dev Anand also didn’t see the light of the day and that was Saajan Ki Galiyan, which also starred Nargis’ niece and the then-flame of Dev Anand, Zaheeda. Two songs seem to have survived, hamne jin ke khwab sajaye and hum khoob jante hai.

Once again, Happy Birthday Sadhana!
Enjoy the playlist here!

    How nice it is to be the first one to comment! Sadhana’s birthday completely missed my mind even though I had it listed. I’m so glad to come here and see your list, Harvey. I must say I prefer Sadhana’s earlier films to her later ones, even musically. By the time it came to Geeta Mera Naam and Vandana, the quality of songs had deteriorated.

    From your list: 1-5 are absolutely classic numbers, though I must admit to preferring Lag jaa gale to Naina barse from Woh Kaun Thi. I like both songs though.

    My favourite Sadhana numbers (other than the ones from your list, and obviously ones that she is ‘singing’)? (I won’t add the videos; maybe you could just link them like Madhu did?)

    1. Ab aur na kuch bhi yaad raha from Prem Patra
    2. Mere nazrein hasee from Ek Musafir Ek Haseena
    3. Dukh aur sukh ke raaste from Hum Dono
    Humne tujhko pyar kiya hai kitna from Dulha Dulhan
    5. Aaja aayi bahaar from Rajkumar

    • harveypam

      September 3, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      Well I nearly missed it as well!
      I thought it was on the 6th. The facebook group “100years of Indian cinema” reminded me of it. Thank God, I’d the post nearly ready, thus I could post it in the nick of time!
      I think I also prefer her earlier films rather than her later ones, she had after all directors like Bimal Roy and Raj Khosla. I would say the songs in the 70s had acquired another quality. I find RDB’s scores in the 70s of a very high quality! Madan Mohan’s score for Woh Kaun Thi is fabulous. Choosing one song was very difficult for me too!

      I have linked the songs now as you have wished. That was a good idea!

      All the songs you ahve emntioned wer eon my short-list except for aaja aayi bahaar from Rajkumar. I think I was over-exposed to that song in the 80s, when it used to be played day-in-day-out on radio or at least I had that feeling. 😉

      For taking out dukh aur sukh ke raaste I’d the excuse that it is nearly a duet! 😉

      Thanks for the songs Anu!

    Happy Birthday Sadhana *phewww*, just in time!! Shabaash harvey for remembering it 🙂

    Sadhana seems to have some quirky brushes with destiny regarding her films. 1968 to 1994 is a looong time. That must be a record. Then the films with Guru Dutt and Dev which never got completed.

    Unfortunately some of her breathtaking songs from Ek Musafir Ek Hasina are not solos though this one is not bad, but not as good as the other. It has the typical OP Nayyar touch at least.

    • harveypam

      September 3, 2012 at 12:31 pm

      Yeah, pacifist, that was in the nick of time, wasn’t it? Thanks to facebook! Thanks for you shaabaashi! 😉

      1968 to 1994 is indeed a long long time. Time enough to grow up, marry and have kids, my aunts would say! 😉

      You need not restrict yourself to her solo songs. my readers don’t have to! Like Ava said once you can even post a song with a dog called Sadhana! 😀

      Is that Jankidas on the chello? Funny to see Rajendranath and Dhumal dancing around in philibegs! 😀 They look absolutely silly!
      Thanks for that!

    It is a nice list of songs. You could have likewise made a list of ten Sadhana duets too. 🙂

      That will come on her next Birthday, Ins’allah!

    Excellent selection Harvey!! The last one particularly is a favourite.As pacifist pointed out, lovely songs in EMEH. I love 2 songs from Mere Mehboob, “Tere Pya me Dildaar” and “Mere Mehboob me kya nahin“.

    • dustedoff

      September 3, 2012 at 6:53 am

      I love those two songs, too! Not Sadhana solos, but lovely songs too, nevertheless. 🙂

      • harveypam

        September 3, 2012 at 1:55 pm

        tere pyar me dildaar is a solo, Madhu! Or did I miss something again!

          September 4, 2012 at 6:01 am

          Ouch, My mistake; yes, you’re right – it is a solo. I mixed it up with God knows which song. 😦

          • harveypam

            September 4, 2012 at 12:27 pm

            I should be the last one to complain, the way I mix up things, a mixer in comparison is a languid pond.

      September 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

      Thank you, Karthik!
      I believe you that aap ke inayatein is one of your favs, after all it is from Ravi! 🙂

      The two songs of Mere Mehboob are nice as well.

  5. Songs Of Yore

    September 3, 2012 at 4:12 am

    Main to tum sang nain milake, Nainon mein badra chhaye, Naina barse rimjhim – it is interesting to note that Madan Mohan composed his best songs on Sadhana. And it is a unique coincidence that all the three have naina. O sajna barkha bahar aayi, Tera mera pyar amar, O mere baragi bhanwra are also my great favourites. Thanks for giving some outstanding songs. The information about unreleased films and some of their songs were excellent.

    • harveypam

      September 3, 2012 at 1:59 pm

      Madan Mohan did have a penchant for aankhen songs, didn’t he? I think one can make a list of MM and eye songs. And Sadhana did have beautiful eyes, so it must have suggested itself to him and his lyricist.
      Thanks for the praise AK!

    September 3, 2012 at 5:43 am

    Good playlist, Harvey. Must go now and listen to it. Sadhana is one of my most favourite actresses, so beautiful, so controlled in her performances, and yes, glamorous. Pity about her thyroid and her eye. 😦

    • harveypam

      September 3, 2012 at 2:03 pm

      Agree with your praise of Sadhana! Love her too!
      BTW as soon as more songs pour in, I’ll update the playlist. So it is sure to become longer!

  7. dustedoff

    September 3, 2012 at 6:51 am

    Happy birthday, Sadhana! (And, harvey – thank you for remembering that!) You’ve listed some lovely songs (I especially love the one from Manmauji), and some that I’d never seen before (like Aapki inaayatein aapke karam). By the way, Parikshit Sahni was credited as Ajay Sahni also in his first film, Anokhi Raat. I wonder when he switched to the name we know him by now…

    I see that Anu has mentioned some of my (or should I say ‘our’?!) favourites – I too love Lag jaa gale ke phir yeh more than Naina barse rimjhim-rimjhim, and Meri nazrein haseen jo ke tum ho haseen. Here are a couple of others that I like:

    From Aarzoo, Aji roothkar ab kahaan:

    From Hum Dono, Dukh aur sukh ke raaste:

    …and, from Parakh, Mere mann ke diye:

    • harveypam

      September 3, 2012 at 2:18 pm

      Thanks to 100 years of Indian Cinema facebook group, who reminded me of it, otherwise this post would have come out on the 6th! 4 days late!
      There are so many beautiful songs filmed on Sadhana, it was a pleasure to go through all of them, but difficult to choose ten.
      Yeah the metamorphosis from Ajay (invincible) to Parikshit (the tested one) is also a mystery to me, but considering the fate of his films not a surprising one, is it?
      My aunts, my big source of film knowledge till the advent of Internet also knew him only by the name Parikshit. And one of them was a big fan of his. She even liked him in that detective serial of his on DD in the late 80s.

      lag jaa gale is indeed fabulous. But to pick up one fav from Woh Kaun Thi is for an indecisive person like me an herculean task.
      Since both, Anu and you have mentioned it. Here it is:

      and for a good measure jo hamne daastan apni sunaiyi

      As you might think, aji roothkar ab kahaan was also on my short-list. That is why I’m so happy that you posted it.
      And I was sure you would bring in mere mann ke diye! Thank you!
      BTW, did you see we not only like the same songs, we also choose nearly the same screen cap from the song mila hai kisi ka jhoomka!

      • dustedoff

        September 4, 2012 at 6:03 am

        Yes, I noticed that screen cap! Actually, throughout that song, I think she looks the prettiest there, with that hibiscus (?) dangling from her fingers. Sweet. 🙂

    • Anu Warrier

      September 3, 2012 at 4:14 pm

      Madhu, Parikshit Sahni made his debut as Ajay Sahni, which was his real name. However, he soon dropped that and called himself ‘Parikshit’ which was the name that Rabindranath Tagore had suggested for him.* Balraj Sahni taught English literature at Shanti Niketan, and his wife, who was studying for her Bachelor’s, was pregnant then, and due to give her exams.

      (*Parikshit Sahni’s interview to Mid-Day in 2006.)

      • harveypam

        September 3, 2012 at 5:34 pm

        Thanks for this information, Anu! Very interesting!
        But interestingly enough, Balraj Sahni always uses the name Parikshit in his autobiography, which must have come out some time around 1968-69, since he refers to his romancing Vyjyanthimala in Sunghursh.
        Maybe he thought it will be easier if he debuts under the name Ajay since it is easier to pronounce than Parikshit.

        • dustedoff

          September 4, 2012 at 6:04 am

          Thanks, Anu! I did know he debuted as Ajay Sahni, because Anokhi Raat happens to be one of my all-time favourite films. Didn’t know how he got the name ‘Parikshit’ – thank you for that lovely bit of trivia!

    September 3, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    The other number from Anita that you claim not to like:

    Her superhit number:

    Poor Sadhana lost her lovely looks pretty soon, thanks to her thyroid problem.

    • harveypam

      September 3, 2012 at 5:38 pm

      Well the Anita song you’ve posted is not bad and it is not that I don’t like it. It is just that it is not a song to which I listen often.
      The jhoomka gira re is lovely as ever! Pink suits her, doesn’t it?
      I think she looked pretty even in Intaquam and later films.

      • dustedoff

        September 4, 2012 at 6:07 am

        Since you’re mentioning Intequam, here’s a solo from that. Sadhana does the daaru act in Kaise rahoon chup. Not one of my favourite songs, but anyway:

        • harveypam

          September 4, 2012 at 12:34 pm

          I used to like this song, because a good friend of mine used to hum it in a sweet manner.
          But few years later, I went to an Indian restaurant in Vienna and they had pushed the repeat button for the instrumental version of this song. And it went on and on and on and the food there was awful. The coming together of this two elements make this song insufferable for me. Though basically it is not such a bad song!

    I am late to this party, and I see most of the songs I knew have already been posted.
    However, I still found one —

    Not in the same league as “Geeta Mera Naam”, but you have to build upto it 😉

    Love you list , almost all are my favorites 🙂

    • harveypam

      September 5, 2012 at 11:33 am

      Late to the party and still come with a bombastic song! Wonderful!
      bedardi balama tujhko is indeed a song with which one identifies Sadhana.
      Thanks for the song, it goes on the play list!

      BTW didn’t she have more solos songs in Geeta Mera Naam?

  11. Shashi

    September 6, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Long time since I visited these pages.

    Wonderful list you have compiled, Harvey. I would have selected maybe 1-2 songs differently, but largely it would be your list. I would have included a song from “Aarzoo” (1965) instead of “Vandana”(1975)

    On Ishq Par Zor Nahin(1970), I think Biswajit was not the producer. He did produce (and direct) “Kehte Hai Mujhko Raja” (1975) which had Dharmendra and him in the lead again. Maybe you are referring to that movie.

    • harveypam

      September 6, 2012 at 1:39 pm

      Missed you and your comments, Shashi!
      Glad to have you back!

      Glad to see so much similarity between your and my list.

      Most probably you are right that I got confused between the two films.

    September 23, 2012 at 10:02 pm

    Oh God Harvey, I feel horrible for not commenting for so long! 😦 I’m so sorry! I’ve been really really busy (Dev’s birthday is on 26 September! -winkwink- :D) and I got grounded too. It’s just been really stressful moving from Singapore to Florida. (And. I don’t like it here. :()

    But I think Woh Kaun Thi is great! I watched a bit of it on the plane ride but not all. I think Manoj/Sadhana is actually cute. Don’t hit me, I like Manoj!

    • harveypam

      September 24, 2012 at 12:01 am

      O, don’t you mind!
      I am so sorry to hear that you are in such a stressful state. Moving to a different continent does come with its price. I can imagine it must be a drastic change for you right from the climate to the mentality. I hope things get normalised soon for you!

      So long as I have my freedom for not liking Manoj much it is okay for me if people like him. What’s more, I think he does look good of sorts!

      • bombaynoir

        September 24, 2012 at 12:40 am

        Yeah, it is so stressful. My grandma, who took care of me most of the time, is still in Singapore. Her visa isn’t ready yet. And my aunty’s never had any kids, so she just does not know how to take care of me. Well dangit, give me food and I’ll entertain myself. But no, she has to get all worked up over the littlest of things. I’m annoyed with her.

        I just want to go back to Singapore. Yes. I want the food there. I want my grandma (She took care of me great), I want my classmates, I… I want the 4pm radio that plays old songs. Sigh… I miss it all. Most of all I hate being teased over liking DEAD people. That just annoys the heck out of me. I don’t know why nobody understands how much I like cinema. I hate being taunted for it.

        And school. Full of such imbeciles. For God’s sake, did nobody teach their kids not to use cuss words in class at least?! And the teachers don’t give a damn about that. AND IT’S SO BORING. My God. I’m only allowed to use the laptop for a freaking hour and for the rest of the day I sit around and do nothing. LIFE IS BORING WITHOUT CINEMA. AND CINEMA IS MY LAPTOP.

        I’m sorry for ranting Harvey. I’m just so annoyed with everyone around me now. If I could I would just book the next flight to Singapore and pack up and leave. To hell with everyone else! I was perfectly happy in Singapore. Really happy. With just Dev’s films and my normal life. I don’t see any damn opportunities here! I don’t want to become another stupid American student!!!!

        …I’m sorry Harvey… sigh.

    November 1, 2012 at 7:00 am

    Wikipedia has interesting information on Sadhna’s (first) cameo role in Shree 420’s Ichak Dana Bichak Dana, acting as one of the students in the song. I re-watched the song but could not really make out which of the young girls is Sadhna.
    The original post and the ensuing comments have covered almost all of Sadhna solos. Here a few that can be added to the illustrious list:

    Main Har Raat Jaagi Ke Ek Raat Shayad – Gaban – 1966 Lata Mangeshkar – Shanker Jaikishan :

    Maine Dekha Tha Saono Men Ek Chnadrahaar – Gaban – 1966 Lata Mangeshkar – Shanker Jaikishan:

    Soorat Hassen – Badtameez – 1966 – Lata Mangeshkar – Shanker Jaikishan –

    Pahela Pahela Pyar Hai – Badtameez – 1966 – (Quite surprisingly) Suman Kalyanpur – Shanker Jaikishan –

    More Saiyan Pakde Baiyan – Sachaai – 1969 – Asha Bhosle – Shanker Jaikishan –

    Beet Chale Haye Ram – Sachaai – 1969 – Asha Bhosle – Shnaker Jaikishan –

    Dil Ki Chali Haye Ram Rut Ye Bahar Ki – Sachaai – Asha Bhosle – Shanker Jaikishan –

    [All the songs of Sachaai are by Asha Bhosl, may be because a tiff Lata had with Shanker for having introduced Sharda! Just an unconfirmed guess.]

    Kya Roz Roz Peena – Chhote Sarkar – 1974 Shanker Jaikishan – {Sadhna does seem watchable, but by now songs become just un-listenable]

    Of course, I have gone on to add up the list , more for records. In terms of lasting quality of songs, I would certainly restrict the listing to two of Gaban Songs and one by Suman Kalyanpur in Badtameez.

        November 2, 2012 at 9:14 am

        Since the solos on Sadhana has been quite an enriching fair , it would be interesting to revisit he subject with duets.
        We would heave equally absorbing debate over individual preferences.

          It is not my personal favourite one, but it is sort of sweet, isn’t it?

              Of course they are. The first part of Intequam was interesting, but in the second half it started dragging!

    SADHANA enthralled audiences with her unique style-especially dress and demeanor the white sari-her favorite, was so hauntingly beautiful in woh kaun thi…………………hiowever, mere mehboob was absolute brilliant where she complemented rajendra kumar frame by frame..narrowly missed two awards
