Video of the Day: “Aap Jaisa Koi” from Qurbani, 1980


Qurbani has some of my favorite things in Bollywood: a tight slap to the face within the first 10 minutes of the film, cool nightclub scenes, great villains and Amjad Khan! Biddu was the music director for the song “Aap Jaisa Koi” which introduced him and Pakistani singer Nazia Hassan to Indian films.

Feroz Khan plays a thief named Rajesh who is blackmailed by villain Vikram (Shakti Kapoor) and his evil sister Jwala (Aruna Irani) into staking from crime boss Rakka (Amrish Puri). Jwala is Rakka’s ex chp05_big_006.jpgwife and has been cheated by Rakka, who has stolen her fortune and divorced her. Jwala wants revenge and will stop at nothing to get it. If Rajesh does not do the job, Vikram will kill Rajesh’s lover, Sheela ( Zeenat Aman), who is a disco club singer and dancer, and Rajesh’s best friend Amar’s (Vinod Khanna) daughter Tina (Natasha Chopra). The thief is continuously being stalled by Inspector Amjad Khan. Written by Ali Halai. (wikipedia)

  2. I was all of 2, and by all accounts, deeply in love with “Aap Jaisa Koi” and Ms Hasan- she was so pretty! So sorry she died of cancer :( I had a baby crush on her brother too, who sang a bit with her in her non-Bollywood albums.

    I think Zeeni looks hottest in the yellow outfit- the red one is just cut funny – but thats my 2 cents.

    Sitaji, you feature on my blogroll as of today, with drum rolls…..thank you for adding me to yours!

  3. Suhkriya for the add to the blogroll Shweta!

    Another blogger, Richard out of NYC, has a much more musical page and he took a liking to this same tune and listed a techno version and I added some other links in my comment that you may want to check out here:

    Here are those links to the other versions, none as good as the originals:

    I listen to Dhoom radio online sometimes and if you do too, you’ll hear a commercial with “Aap Jaisa Koi” as background music. It’s played almost every hour.(http://www.dhoomfm.com/)

    Now this song is back in my head and I’ve registered your 1 vote for the yellow.
