Video of the Day: “Intehaan Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki” from Sharaabi (1984)


Happy New Year’s Eve!  Just think, It’s already 2008 in Bollywood! Sita-ji will be rockin’ in New Year’s Eve doing a jigsaw puzzle and listening to a book on tape because she doesn’t have a Bollywood movie on hand. Tomorrow she will head south of the border to look for signs of Bollywood in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  Nandini is making her way around the globe from Asia, perhaps flying over Bollywood right now!  BFC  believes that the scene in today’s video “Intehaan Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki,” shows how some may be celebrating the New Year.  It’s from the movie Sharaabi .

Sharaabi(English: Drunkard) is a 1984 Indian Hindi movie produced and directed by Prakash Mehra. This was Prakash Mehra’s last hit and sixth in a row with Amitabh, the other five being Zanjeer, Hera Pheri, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Laawaris and Namak Halaal. He did subsequently make Jaadugar with Amitabh but the film did not click. The movie stars Amitabh and Jaya Prada with Pran and Om Prakash along with Bharat Bhushan and Ranjeet The music was given by Bappi Lahiri. Vicky Kapoor, the only son of multi-millionaire industrialist, Amarnath, grows up to be an alcoholic, a spolit brat albeit with a good heart. Amarnath has detached himself completely from Vicky’s life, and provides him money in lieu of affection and care, living this to be taken care off by Munshi Phoolchand. Vicky is very resentful of being ignored by his dad in this manner, and leaves no stone unturned to mock and belittle him at every available opportunity. Amarnath hopes to get his son married, but Vicky loves the daughter of a poor blind man, Meena, which is not acceptable to Amarnath. One day Amarnath decides he has had enough and decides to turn Vicky out of his house. He has him sign waivers, and asks him to get out, which Vicky does so. While Vicky is relieved of being freed from his dad’s control, the question remains that with no skills at making a living, how is Vicky to survive in a cold-hearted world? (wikipedia)


Now watch Amitabh and Jaya Prada in “Intehaan Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki,” with music by Bappi Lahiri and playback singers Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle.

  1. Kishore Kumar and Amitabh were inseparable acts during the latter’s heydays. One could not imagine any Amitabh movie in those days, without Kishoreda’s songs. Both had heavily entertained the Hindi movie goers by the time KK passed away and Amirabh’s mega star image started to dwindle. Where would have been the names like Amitabh and Kaka (Rajesh Khanna) had it not been KK’s unprecedented singing to back up them over the cinema screens? I have raised the same point in my own blog here:

  2. Namaste Pankaj! Thanks for stopping by out blog and thanks for showing me this post! I especially like knowing this part:

    “Amitabh was the only actor who fully used to dub Kishoreda’s songs. You could watch him loudly sing each line with his bulging and tale-telling neck veins.”

    Know I’m going to be watching for those tell tale nck veins from now on. Excellent bit of knowledge.

    I like your blog, very nice!
    I’ll be checking it out from now on.

    All the best!
