I think cinema, movies and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians. -Francis Ford Coppola
I am grateful to the utorrent, a free movie downloading software and other applications available today. This really helps me to keep my love for cinema young and alive.
Since last many days I have watched many Retro movies (which I like the most) and of the actor whom I admire the most. The most popular Indian Actor of 1970’s Rajesh Khanna. I always wish that “Kaash.! Unke zamaane meh janm liya hota.!”
Roughly a week ago I watched his film Anand (1971). This film stars Amitabh Bachchan (a famous character of Babu Moshai.!), Sumita Sanyal and Dara Singh. This Film was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and was written by Gulzar Sahab.
This film ends with a great message that “Enjoy the life in the best way you can.!”
A year later, the same director came up with the another movie named Bawarchi (1972). Amitabh Bachchan narrates this story which revolves around the family of Sharma’s. This film stars Jaya Bhaduri (now Jaya Bachchan), Asrani, and Rajesh Khanna. Again the script was written by Gulzar Sahab.
It was 30/12/2012, Sunday. As usual I woke up late and then took a bath, recite religious books, offer noon namaaz. And as per my regular habit I took a plate (this time it was Chicken Biryani) for lunch and sat on my bed. I put the curtains off and switch on my laptop (Compaq Presario CQ40) and start playing a film Bawarchi.
The film starts with the introduction of family members of the Shanti Niwas (Sarcasm: Where there is no Shanti..) Then Rajesh Khanna(Raghu) arrives at their place in a Khaki dress with shorts and a Maharastrian cap. He asks for a job of a Bawarchi (a cook) which family wants desperately.
Then he starts sharing love, humanity and generosity with all the family members and gain their trust within some days. He change their food habits and all mismanaged household chores. He believes in “Dusron ka kaam karne meh jo anand milta hai, waisa anand aur kaha.?” These words of him makes a family very happy and joyous. They bury their hatreds and start enjoying. They even forget the greed of the jewels which was with their Daduji.
Raghu helps in quitting the habit of drinking alcohol of the elder brother. He also helps in making two sister-in-laws respect and love each other. He sings for the Chotu Taansen, teaches dance to Krishna ben, and make others learn that self-ego leads to failure.
He does every best possible thing for the betterment of the family. One day he steals away the jewel box of Daduji and hand it over to the boy. And at last that boy reveals the reality of the Raghu.
The boy said that Raghu gave this box to me, so that I can return it to you and marry Krishna.
Raghu made every possible effort to put smiles on everyone’s face. By doing this he wants that you approves Krishna marriage with me. He added.
Then Krishna ran to stop Raghu to continue his service as Bawarchi. But Raghu replies that his life mission is to spread happiness and joy in people’s life. He had completed his task in Shanti Niwas and now he has to go.
The film took 2 hours and 15 minutes to finish.
The characters and story were very superbly drafted. It again ends with a message of helping each other and make the world a better place to live in.
I switch on the lights in my room and found my Biryani plate as it is. Not more than one two spoons I tasted. The taste of Biryani was delicious but I must say not more than Bawarchi film.
The New Year-2013 is welcoming us and its time for Bid Adieu to 2012.
And I took this resolution in the new year that I will surely try to spread happiness and love in the world around me. Women in the country are not safe, and are undergoing inhuman torture. I will try my best with my hands and limbs to make India a better place to live in.
May Almighty Allah Rest the soul of the victim in peace. And may Allah gives me enough strength to fulfill my resolution. -Aamin
Happy New Year In Advance.! Take Care.!
