More about the movie

Loosely modelled on Akira Kurosawa's film 'Ikiru' (1952), the film is a melodramatic story of Anand Sehgal (Rajesh Khanna) suffering from a terminal disease. The film begins with There. Bhaskar (Amitabh Bachchan) winning a literary prize for a book he has written on one of his patients - Anand and the rest of the film is in flashback. Anand is suffering from lymph sarcoma of the intestine and has only a few days of life left. Anand is from Delhi and comes to Mumbai for treatment where Doctor Bhaskar K. Banerjee is assigned with the responsibility of treating him. With his high spirited fun-filled demeanour, Anand instantly blows the doctors away and not only the doctors but also everybody who comes in contact with him - Dr. Prakash's wife Suman, Matron D'Sa and also Bhaskar's love interest Renu (Sumita Sanyal).

A wonderful friendship is forged between Anand and Dr. Bhaskar from their very first meeting. Extremely jovial and talkative Anand makes everybody around him happy but doesn't believe in sharing his pains. The story moves forward with Anand continuing to befriend people from all across of life. Everybody he comes across is charmed by his jovial smile and pranks but is also driven to tears when they come to know that this wonderful man is left with only a few days of life left to him. If there is any film that will make you feel absorbed till the last scene and most probably shade more than a few drops of tears - then Anand is one that you will love to watch time and again for this is a story that never gets old.

Rajesh Khanna in his portrayal of Anand is nothing less than brilliant, and this is certainly one of his career best performances. Amitabh Bachchan in his pre-stardom days is also fantastic as Doctor Bhaskar K. Banerjee or BabuMosai - the name he was given by his extraordinary patient. Rajesh Khanna, with his perfect portrayal of the character, makes the audiences laugh at one moment, and the very next the viewers are shedding tears.


With its memorable dialogs and songs written by stalwarts like Hrishikesh Mukherjee himself, Gulzar, Bimal Dutta and D.N.Mukherjee, extraordinary music by Salil Chowdhury and also superlative performance from great singers like Manna Dey, Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar - Anand easily cements its position among the all time best Hindi movies of all time. The director masterfully exerts stupendous performances not only from the leading and supporting actors but also from the versatile music director, the best lyricist and also the best singers of the country and creates a masterpiece of melodramatic representation of human sentiments and emotions. Music by Salil Chowdhury is truly the hallmark of the movie and the simple four song sound track with all time favourite songs like 'Zindagi Kaisi Hai Paheli Haaye' or 'Maine Tere Liye Hi Saat Rang Ke Sapne' continues to mesmerize the readers even after more than 40 years of their composition.

It is the last moments of the film that makes it a truly memorable and real classic. Bachchan matches Rajesh Khanna step by step in these scenes and the last scene with him weeping on Anand's dead body and Mr, Chowdhury's heart touching background score is simply as best as you have seen any Hindi movie. This is a perfect movie for family viewing. You can order it online and have it delivered at your doorstep.

    Anand: ~~zindagi ~ kaisi ~ hai ~ paheli ~ haye....~~
    This movie was a big hit and has not gone old by the time. The movie is still as fresh as it was when it was released in 1970.
    Directed Hrishikesh Mukherjee and produced by N.C. Sippy, are the two names who used to produce blockbusters during that era.
    Cast: Rajesh Khanna: Anand Sehgal Amitabh Bachchan: Dr. Bhaskar Johny Walker:Isa Bhai/ Murarilal Ramesh Dev:Dr,.Kulkarni Sumita Sanyal: Renu Asit Sen
    Producer: N C Sippy
    Director: Hrishikesh Mukherjee
    Lyrics: Gulzar, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Yogesh
    Music: Salil Chaudhary
    Story: Bimal Dutt, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Gulzar

    What I liked: Story, dialogues, script, lyrics, performance – everything was marvelous and probably that is the reason for this movie getting so many filmfare awards – for best movie, for best supporting actor, for best actor, etc. Songs that I still remember are – “kaheen door jab din dhal jaaye, saanjh si dulhan nazar churaye, chupke se jaaye, mere khyalon ke aangan mein koi sapnon ke deep jakaye… deep jalaye” and “maine tere liye hi saat rang ke sapne choone, sapne surile sapne…” and “zindagi kaisi hai paheli hai, kabhi ye hasaye, kabhi ye rulaye…” and “na jiya jaaye na… tere bina mera kahin jiya jaaye na…”

    Best moments of this movie: When Anand calls anyone as Murarilal When Anand calls Dr Bhaskar as Babu Moshai When Anand is about to die and begs doctor banerjee for life When Anand recites the poem – ae maut tu ek kavita hai When Anand tells Isa bhai about the philosophy of life When Anand calls mother (instead of sister) to the head sister of the hospital (who is very strict) When Anand meets Renu for the first time When Anand says – Babu Moshai – hum sab upar wale ke haath ki ek kathputli hain…” When Anand dies.

    What this movie conveys: Anand was a patient but in real sense he was a natural doctor who was spreading life even when he knew that he is going to die soon Dr Bhaskar was a doctor, a doctor who is called as next to god in context of giving life… but moments came when Doctor Bhaskar became so helpless Story: Anand is suffering from Lymphosercoma of blood or blood cancer and is about to die in next six months or so. But he is so lively personality that he wants to live every moment that is left with him even when he comes to know about his illness. Infact there are indications at time that he is afraid to die and that is why also tries to make every moment as lively as possible. Dr Bhaskar is a very serious personality, and a capable doctor. Anand is admitted in the hospital and Dr Bhaskar is treating him. Both are just complimenting personalities. Bhaskar on one hand speaks very little and Anand on the other hand cannot be silent even for a second. Ultimately Anand is able to get place in everybody’s heart… and everybody cries to know that he is about to die except himself… Rajesh Khanna, Amotabh, Ramesh Dev, Johny Walker – all did a wonderful performance to make this movie a memorable movie. The movie is 14 reels and almost 2 hrs duration.

    This is of that type “Once in a Lifetime” movie. One of the greatest movie of not only Indian cinema but also of World cinema. It deserve its place in between top 5 movie I have ever seen. A must watch movie. And what a character created by Hrishikesh Mukherjee! And Rajesh Khanna was something beyond imagination.

  3.  Masterclass from Hrishikesh Mukherjee 11 October, 2012 On
    I watched this movie almost 10 years ago and it still is etched in my memory. I have always liked this movie. Great performances by Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna. But the masterclass came from director Hrishikesh Mukherjee.
