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.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
