Caravan- Revisiting after 50 Years



The musical superhit movie directed by Nasir Husain featured Asha Parekh, Jeetendra, and Aruna Irani accomplished 50 years on fifth Nov 2021 and was a brilliant hit in India. You’d be shocked to notice that it was a super-duper hit in China when it was launched eight years after its Indian launch. In truth, Caravan, consider it or not, bought 19 million tickets in India – and 100 million tickets in China! 100 million broke all data in China for a overseas movie. One of many earliest Indian movies to earn the massive bucks in Chinese language home markets was Raj Kapoor’s 1951 Indian basic Awara. launched in 1955.

Caravan‘s superb success in China was matched solely thirty years later by Nasir Husain’s nephew, Amir Khan along with his 3 Idiots.

The film’s storyline was nothing nice. A runaway heiress joins a passing caravan of gypsies, to flee the villain who murdered her father, then falls in love with the main man, who finally rescues her from the villain, and so on, and so on. The movie’s plot was loosely impressed by the 1953 movie Lady on the Run, a little-known crime drama set in opposition to the backdrop of a carnival burlesque present, which was modified to a gypsy present in Caravan.

Aruna Irani has a major position on this movie.The touring troupe featured Madan Puri because the supervisor and a younger Aruna Irani because the star performer Nisha. In truth, Irani almost stole the present from the movie’s heroine along with her animated performances within the songs ‘Chadhti Jawaani Meri Chaal Mastani’, ‘Dilbar Dil Se Pyaare’ and ‘Ab Joh Mile Hain Toh’.

The screenplay of the movie was supplied by Bhowmick, however the therapy of the movie was all Husain, who turned it into the entertainer that it was. In keeping with the movie’s star Asha Parekh in her biography The Hit Lady, Caravan occurred by accident.

The spotlight of the movie was its music, composed by R D Burman, and lyrics by Mazrooh Sultanpuri. In Caravan, there was a track for each temper. There was the delicate romantic duet ‘Kitna Pyaara Waada’, the highway track ‘Goriya Kahaan Tera Desh Re’, the goofy efficiency quantity ‘Daiya Yeh Important Kahaan Aa Phasi’, and, after all, essentially the most well-known of all of them, the cabaret observe, ‘Piya Tu Ab Toh Aaja’ picturized on Helen, which introduced singer Asha Bhosle her third Filmfare award for Greatest Feminine Playback Singer.
