Searching for the lost love in someone else

Human life is strange as well as complicated. And so are the male-female relationships. You never know whom you fall for, how, when and why. The 'why' is the most ticklish among these questions and normally it is difficult to answer. However sometimes, it is mandatory to search for its answer to understand and resolve the intricacies of life and relationships. Doosra Aadmi (1977) directed by Yash Chopra's assistant - Ramesh Talwaar is a sentimental drama exploring this 'why' which plays havoc in the lives of its characters. Doosra Aadmi (the second man) is based on the Hollywood movie - Goodbye Again (1961) which is a celluloid adaptation of Francois Sagan's bestselling novel - 'Aimez-vous Brahms ?' This is based on the plot of a woman's getting attracted to a man younger in age to her because he has resemblance with her erstwhile lost love. Since this youth is a happily married person, the leading lady's throwing herself upon him leads to rift in his marital relationship and everything goes in the negative direction until a true friend and well-wisher of the mature lady guides her in the right direction. The pivotal character of Doosra Aadmi is Nisha (Raakhee Gulzaar) whose beau - Shashi (Shashi Kapoor) is no more and to get her out of his haunting memories, she has converted herself into a workaholic. Being a freelancing professional, she is approached by a budding entrepreneur - Karan (Rishi Kapoor) who employs her in his newly established advertising agency. Karan has entered into marriage with Timsi (Neetu Singh) after their courtship and they are a happy couple. With the entry of Nisha in Karan's life, troubles start for their marital relationship because Nisha visualizes her dead beau - Shashi in Karan and her infatuation for Karan increases with the passage of time. Karan too does not remain unaffected by it and soon this attraction becomes a two-way traffic. Cracks appear in the home of Karan and Timsi and it is on the verge of complete breakage when Nisha's close friend and well wisher - Bheesham (Parikshit Saahni) makes Nisha realize her mistake and she steps out of the life of Karan. Once you do not get united with the love of your life or some unfortunate incident takes him / her away from you, you (being a true and devoted lover) start looking for him / her in every new face you come across and when you find even the least of similarity between the two (i.e., the lost one and the one now in front of you), you happen to visualize the face of the bygone one in the present one. It is natural because we have learnt to love and certain lovers are so sincere that it becomes irresistible for them. But the reality of life as well as world is that the gone one does not come back. And it may prove fatal to impose his / her memories (and image) on someone else. The narrator has kept the bubbly romance in the initial portion of the movie and once the main track starts, not allowed any digression. Since the movie is based on a sentimental and serious theme, the entertainment quotient sinks in that part and despite the good script and the touching performances, a feeling of heaviness envelops the spectator. This movie, therefore, is not everybody's cup of tea. But the movie is well made all the same. Perhaps it would have been much better, had Yash Chopra directed it himself. Anyway, Ramesh Talwaar has done his job well. Doosra Aadmi boasts of good music like all Yash Raj banner movies. Rajesh Roshan has composed melodious tunes for the beautiful lyrics of Majrooh Sultaanpuri. It contains chartbusters like Chal Kahin Door Nikal Jaayen, Nazaron Se Keh Do Pyar Mein Milne Ka Mausam Aa Gaya, Aankhon Mein Kaajal Hai etc. My personal favourite from the music album of Doosra Aadmi is - Aao Manaayen Jashn-e-Mohabbat Jaam Uthaayen Jaam Ke Baad (sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar). Technically the movie is good. Several beautiful locations shown on the screen are eye-soothing. The movie is not unduly long and ends at the appropriate point. Casting Shashi Kapoor in the role of Raakhee's dead beau and Rishi Kapoor in the second man (Doosra Aadmi) she comes across is an example of very thoughtful casting because the faces of the real life uncle (Shashi Kapoor) and nephew (Rishi Kapoor) resemble (their mannerisms also resemble) and thereby a reason has been furnished for Raakhee to get attracted to Rishi Kapoor. Shashi is wonderful in the cameo whereas Rishi and Neetu have always been made for each other whether it's the reel life or the real life. Parikshit Saahni has delivered a mature performance (the way he has always done throughout his career) in the role of Bheesham. Finally, it's Raakhee Gulzaar who is the heart and soul of this movie and she has shown her class in the author-backed role. Doosra Aadmi was a box office flop and it's quite natural too because this movie is emotionally heavy and not fit for light entertainment. However one more reason for the box office failure of this otherwise good movie is that it was ahead of its time. In that period, the Indian audience was not mature enough to digest the attraction of an elder woman towards a younger man (especially when the man is married). That maturity came to it with the passage of time and later on we saw the acceptance of such movies (or such tracks in multilayer movies). Now this movie can also be watched, understood, felt and accepted by the viewers.

Ahead of it's times

Yash Chopra during the 70s made films like Deewaar,Trishul and in between he made romantic films like Kabhie Kabhie which was a big hit, Doosra Aadmi was his production directed by Ramesh Talwar. The film had a different theme(for Hindi films),it is based on the Hollywood movie - Goodbye Again (1961) which is a celluloid adaptation of Francois Sagan's bestselling novel - 'Aimez-vous Brahms ?' The film has a concept which was not accepted that time of a lady falling for a younger guy because he resembles her previous love. The film starts with routine love story and then transforms into a mature one and is well handled, no doubt, we also have comedy in between by Deven Verma. It ends on a predictable note though but perhaps the director thought it's smart considering the theme being bold. Direction is good Music by Rajesh Roshan was superb, Chal Kahin Door is a superb song sung by Kishore,Lata and Rafi, rest songs by Kishore and Lata are superb too. Rishi Kapoor is superb in his role, Neetu Singh is admirable too in her role, both were dating that time and it shows in their chemistry. Shashi who is real life uncle of Rishi suits the role and impresses in a cameo, Raakhee is superb in her role too Parikshit Sahni is good, Satyen Kapoo is as always good, Deven verma entertains Years later in 2001 there was a movie Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya which had Govinda and his nephew Vinay Anand in a remake of this film which too bombed.

Good remake of Ingrid Bergman movie

This movie has several things going for it. For starters it has a nice story (original for a Hindi film). Well, original? It's actually a remake of a Ingrid Bergman movie (i think it was Goodbye Again) also starring that guy from Psycho. In this movie Raakhee Gulzar (in Ingrid Bergmans role) falls for a younger man (Rishi Kapoor) who is engaged to be married (Neetu Singh). But this being a Hindi movie she has a reason : Rishi Kapoor resembles her deads lover Shashi Kapoor (GREAT casting). Parikshat Sahni and Simmi Gare wal give nice support. The cast in this Yash Chopra film (Shashi Kapoor, Raakhee, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Simmi Garewal and Parikshat Sahni is almost the same cast as in Yash Chopras Kabhi Kabhie minus Bachchan and Waheeda). The music in this film by Rajesh Roshan is just great. Evergreen songs bu Kishore, Rafi and Lata. Years later it was remade as Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya with Tabu in Raakhee's role, Govinda in Shashi Kapoors role and Govindas nephew in Rishis role. That movie was a pain in the...
