5 Must Watch Movies Of Sanjeev Kumar (A Tribute to him)


Best actor of Hindi Cinema One of the finest performers of Indian cinema is Sanjeev Kumar had said goodbye to the stage of this world on 6th of November in 1985. Most of us new generation people know him as Thakur of film Sholay, though this actor has played really versatile and soulful characters in many other remarkable Bollywood movies. The veteran actor of 80s was fit into any role from drama to action and from comedy to romance and to suspense also which made him win the national award for best actor in 1971 and 1973. 
Let list here five best films of Sanjeev Kumar (according to me) that every cinema lover must watch :
* Mausam:
Mausam top Sanjeev Kumar movie by Vibhu & Me
This 1975 film is an absolute fine piece of drama by Gulzar. In this film, Sanjeev Kumar played a young man for a short time while the entire story shows him as an old man who is a doctor in regret. Although this film is believed to be made alive by Sharmila Tagore who played a double role performing both mother as well as daughter, I find the role of Sanjeev Kumar flawless in making the film successfully touch the corner of viewers heart the way it does. The Madan Mohan songs add to the melody of this tragic love story.

* Koshish

This Gulzar created film is plotted on a deaf and dumb couple, played by Sanjeev Ji and Jaya Bhaduri Ji. The performance is excellent in showcasing the life events, joys, sorrows, pain and pleasure of the mute couple. The role of Hari Charan Mathur played by Sanjeev Ji along with all other characters of the films creates hope in despair when specially abled people love, live and express themselves and confront the challenges of life. Many cinema critics count Koshish as the finest performance of Sanjeev Kumar.

* Angoor:

Plotted on the story of two pairs of identical twins, played by Sanjeev Kumar and Deven Verma, this 1982 film is an absolute fun. Though there are many other touching roles played by Sanjeev ji in his career, I include this film here being a soulful light comedy. The film is a screenplay based on Bengali novel Bhrantibhas in which the life events of characters take amusing twists and turns.

* Aandhi:

Another 1975 Gulzar film starring Sanjeev Kumar that fetched awards and applause was Andhi. The plot of this film is said to be based on the life events of late prime minister Indira Gandhi which made it controversial while release. Sanjeev Kumar in this film played against Suchita Sen who played the role of a politician in power while they meet and separate due to emotional circumstances. All time classic melodies R. D Burman song “tere Bina Zindagi se koi..” and “tum aagye ho Noor aagaya hai..” are from this film.  

* Pati Patni Aur Who:
Pati Patni Aur Who top movie of Sanjeev Kumar by Vibhu & Me
This is film that gave us lesson to take bath with cold water through its popular track “Thande Thade pani se nahana chahiye..” The 1978 B. R. Chopra film is a family drama full of comedy, romance and emotions. The story is plotted upon extramarital affair in the life of  Ranjeet Chaddha played by Sanjeev Kumar with his wife and secretary.

Despite these five best I could name here, Sanjeev Kumar films like Namkeen, Manchali, Seeta Aur Geeta, Trishul, Itni si Baat, Aap ki Kasam, Anamika, Shatranj Ke Khilari and many more are also there to make you a fan of Sanjeev Kumar’s acting and talent.
Do let me know which one is your favorite Sanjeev Kumar flick.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Tradition of Respecting and Celebrating Food

A story to begin with

After winning the great battle of kurukshetra, Yudhisthira was now king of Hastinapur. And then one day, all of sudden Krishna went to Yudhishithira and started saying in urgency "dadasvannam dadasvannam dadasvannam yudhisthira (“Give food! Give food! Give food! Yudhisthira). As the great battle had affected everyone in the country, food was the first way to start giving relief to the suffering countrymen.  As suggested by Krishna, yudhisthira then organized the great asvamedha-yajna. Mahabharata records an extraordinary celebration of distributing food as a part of the sacred year-long rites and rituals.
