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:

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 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert. From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns.

Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse : वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥ Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum.. I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki. अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2| Atasi Pushpa Sankasham Hara Nupura Shobhitam..Ratna Kankana Keyuram Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum... I salute to the teacher of this world Krishna,

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who.. I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold. ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life! I am not the wife wh
