Movie: The song Mausam hai ganeka… appeared in the movie Surakshaa (1979) directed by Ravikant Nagaich and produced by B Subhash and Ravikant Nagaich. The actors of this movie are Mithun Chakraborthy, Ranjeeta Kaur, late Iftekar, late Jeevan, Jagdeep and Aruna Irani.

This song is in the beginning of the movie. The story till then is that Shiv Shakti Organization (SSO) intends to terrorize the people of India. CBI Chief (Iftekar) gets to know about this and informs Officer Gopi aka Gunmaster G9 (Mithun Chakraborthy) about it. He also orders Gunmaster G9 to investigate the matter. There is a murder attempt on Gopi in the beginning of the movie, so that we understand how dangerous his job is.

Song: Music by Bappi Lahiri lyrics by Faruk Kaisar.

The boy sings, “The season is of singing, playing musical instruments, to listen, to speak, to laugh and make others laugh, keep people awake at night, to be remembered. This life and this world are the dreams of a madman.”.

There is a Metaphor here. The eyes are indirectly compared to a camera, where the image is captured.

Now, the extra female singers are heard to say, “Gun Master. Gun Master. I love you. You are mine. Gun Master G9. (This portion has been deleted in the soundtrack of the video I found.)”

The boy continues, “The personality is seen in the eyes of people. Love is that enjoyment, which seems to be costly. But when you actually buy it, it is inexpensive. This life and this world are the dreams of a madman. Every road is the destination. Every storm is a sea bank (coast). Every musical composition is a song. Every song is a heart. This life and this world are the dreams of a madman.”

Here again the road is indirectly compared to the destination and a storm is indirectly compared to a sea bank.

Video: Dances are by B Hiralal and cinematographer is Ravikant Nagaich.

This song is placed at the beginning of the movie. Thus the credits are shown during the song. Compared to Mithun Chakraborthy’s dress and his car the colors of the girls’ dresses look faded. They could have used brighter colors for the girls’ dresses. The girls are shown doing natural things like applying lipstick, etc.

Even though the picturization of this song is on the streets, they have selected a good spot for it. The car moving down a fly over, with the girls holding a set of balloons looks good. Suddenly everybody is shown to be in a boat. Mithun Chakraborthy is shown as a playboy type of person. But his heart is in the right place. That is shown by the way he saves the little girl from danger. The hero’s character development is shown in the beginning only. So the narrative can be taken forward without bothering about it further.

When the heroine Ranjeeta Kaur watches him saving the little girl, she gets impressed.

Artists: Bhappi Lahiri sings the playback. Mithun Chakraborthy dances with some extra girls and Ranjeeta Kaur looks on.

Cultural Influence: This song shows how differently a girl can meet a boy in a movie. Several cinematic liberties have also been taken while flowing through the song.
