Filmy Kutappe – 39 in English (Translated by AnoopInder Kaur)
1959, Punjabi black and white movie, Do Lachhian, featuring Indra Billi, Gopal Sehgal, Khairati Bhainga. “teri kanak di raakhi mundeya hun main ni baindi..kyu na baindi..Oh maar k chhaalan javaan..meri jhanjar laindi..khetaan nu paani lavaan..meri mehndi laindi..main sohni lgdi..tere kadma ch baindi” Shamshaad Begum-Rafi.
Back in mid 90s, people used to buy wheat grain sacks and get them ground to make flour. I was given responsibility to carry the sacks of grains to “Vijay Atta Chakki” and bring the flour which takes 2-3 hours. The filmy buff inside me urges me everytime to use this time lapse to watch movie. I always spend money given for flour to watch movie and paid the Chakki owner alternatively.
“gora rang na ho jaaye kaala k dhupe roti na pka..chhaleya tandoor te main pranthe laaniyan..tu kyu aaye door se..lassi pee la..roti kha le..kheti kr ve sohneya..Mahi chleya..Vaisakhi de mele..jalebiyan nu dil krda..tera km na gali de vich koi.. tu aaven jaaven mere badle”
Once my dad found out about my double- crossing and the “Filmy Kuttapa” followed.
“ik pind do lachhicn..choti ne pwarah paya..ve gabru khajoor vrga..ma chhutki kudi ne bulaya..moti akhiyan ne kehar machaya..pyar diyan la k jharhiyan..mainu morni de vaang nachaya” Shamshad Begum-Rafi.
My classmate Suresh’s father was cashier in State Bank where Prabhat Cinema’s cash account was. We asked him to give us new notes and get them exchanged from various shopkeepers with the ragged notes. Doing so, we always saved money for the tickets of movies. To avoid more “Filmy Kuttapas”, we divided the city in four divisions as A, B, C and D and each member of our Film Mandali went to the division away from his house. Smart lads!!! Ain’t We??
