The film Bhabhi Ki Chudiyan was a masterpiece.
Bhabhi Ki Chudiyan.
The film Bhabhi Ki Chudiyan, which was released in 1961 was a masterpiece. It was directed by Sadashiv Kavi. The music was composed by Sudhir Phadke.
The film was related to the story of a middle-class woman played by Meena Kumari who sacrificed her entire life for the cause of happiness for the family. Balraj Sahani had a small brother who missed his mother very early. The mother died before the brother got senses.
He required mother’s care. Balraj Sahani married Meena Kumari. She fulfilled all her duties of mother and nurtured the child. Sailesh Kumar played the role of the brother of Balraj Sahani. He married Seema Deo who belonged to a rich family. Durga Khote played the role of the mother of Seema Deo, while Om Prakash played the role of the father of Seema Deo. Her mother tried her tricks to get the brothers separated. She did not succeed.
Meena Kumari never begot any child due to miscarriage. But when Seema Deo’s child was seriously ill, Meena Kumari sacrificed her health to treat the child and at the end of the film died. Her bangles (chudiyan) did not burn after her body turned into ashes.
The excellent performance of Meena Kumari and Balraj Sahani made the film immortal. Sudhir Phadke’s excellent classical music mesmerized the audience. Lata’s song “jyoti kalash” still haunts huge number of cinelovers. Mukesh and Asha Bhosle also sang brilliant songs in the film. The real life story of sacrifice of a middle-class woman had made everyone spellbound. The film should be shown to the new generation for excellence of direction, music and powerful acting.
