Mujhe Jeene Do Play

Mujhe Jeene Do, 1963
Director: Moni Bhattacharjee
Music: Jaidev
Lyrics: Sahir Ludhianvi
Playback: Mohammad Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle
Starring: Waheeda Rehman, Sunil Dutt, Nirupa Roy, Rajendra Nath, Siddhu, Anwar Hussain, Burga Khote, Tarun Bose, Mumtaz

Sunil Dutt won a Filmfare Award as Best Actor. This film has never been released with subtitles. So, here it is for the Hindi challenged (and even the Hindi speakers). Subs by Raja with the songs also by Ava. Thanks to you both!

Thakur Jarnail Singh is known and feared in the region and has killed anyone who has dared to oppose him. He shoots down Champa's husband ruthlessly in front of her eyes, ignoring her pleas for mercy when the former refuses to provide ammunition and guns. He then shows up in full force during a wedding ceremony at the Zamindar's mansion and abducts a courtesan, Chamelijaan. Subsequently, he rescues her from his henchman, Thakur Kripal Singh, and with her consent, marries her in the presence of Pandit Ram Avtar and Maulana Sheikh Rahim. Shortly thereafter she becomes pregnant and gives birth to a boy who they name Sheru. With the child growing up, the Superintendent of Police hot on his tail, the trio go on the run and separate. A traumatized Chamelijaan must decide about their future when she not only goes to live in the same village as Champa - but watches her son learn to ride horses and take up firearms.

Babul Play

Babul, 1950
Director: S.U. Sunny
Music: Naushad
Lyrics: Shakeel Badayuni
Playback: Shamshad Begum, Talat Mahmood, Lata Mangeshkar
Cast: Nargis, Dilip Kumar, Manawar Sultana, Amar, A. Shah, H. Pahadi, Tun Tun, Jankidas, Vinod

Many thanks to Muz for supplying the VHS tape from which this was taken. It's from a recording of a BBC broadcast of the film many years ago and is hard-subbed for the Hindi-language impaired.

Set in a small village, Babul is a story of a young postmaster Ashok (Dilip Kumar). He stays in the house of a former postmaster and meets his daughter Bela (Nargis). Bela falls deeply in love, dreaming of a life with him. Meanwhile Dilip develops feelings for the Zamindar's daughter Usha (Munawar Sultana), who reciprocates his affection.

But the heartbroken Bela intervenes, revealing to Usha her own (misguided) belief that Ashok has already professed his love for her; this causes Usha (in a surprising show of class-transcending compassion) to renounce her love for Ashok in favor of Bela's prior claim, and to accept a pending proposal from the aristocratic son of one of her father's cronies. As Usha's wedding approaches, both she and Ashok lapse into depression, while Bela exults (despite recurring nightmares of a black-veiled rider coming to carry her away); a happy ending appears increasingly unlikely, and happily the director makes no last minute attempt to manufacture one.
