Aaya mausam dosti ka – S P/Lata/Shailendra/Usha – Raam-Lakshman – Salman/ Bhagyashree/Lakshmikant/Huma | Maine Pyar Kiya (1989)


There is a story behind this movie. Bhagyashree was introduced in a 1987 teleserial Kacchi Dhoop (The Sunlight During Dawn and Dusk). The hero was Ashutosh Gowarikar. Sooraj Barjatiya wanted to make his first movie with Ashutosh Gowarikar and Bhagyashree. But, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s built was such that he could just lift the fragile Bhagyashree and take her away. On the other hand, the story line of the movie was that the hero patiently waits for the turn of his luck to get married to the heroine. Thus, the director settled for Salman Khan. But, Bhagyashree’s family, having royal antecedents, insisted that she would wear only decent clothes in the entire movie, which the director complied with.
Movie: This song appeared in 1989 romantic musical hit film Maine Pyar Kiya (I have fallen in love) directed by Sooraj Barjatiya (debut) for Rajashri Productions. The movie starred Salman Khan, Bhagyashree (debut), Reema Lagoo, Alok Nath, Rajeev Verma, etc. This is Salman Khan’s first movie in a lead role. He had already portrayed a character role in his first movie Biwi Ho Toh Aisi (1988).
A poor mechanic Karan (Alok Nath) lives in a village with his only child Suman (Bhagyashree). He has secured a job in Dubai to earn money for his daughter’s marriage. He leaves his daughter with his childhood friend Kishan (Rajeev Verma). Kishan allows Suman to live in his home at his friend’s request. Kishan’s son Prem befriends Suman, with the assurance that a boy and a girl can have a platonic relationship with each other.
One day, Prem and his friend Manohar (Lakshmikant-Berde) are playing table tennis and challenges Suman for a match. Right then, Suman receives her father’s letter and gets emotional. Prem sings this song to cheer her and she also joins in the song.
Song: The lyrics were penned by Asad Bhopali and the music was scored by Raam-Lakshman.
This song affirms the platonic relationship between the boy and the girl.
Video: Cinematography is by Arvind Laad. Dance choreography is by late Jay Borade.
The video opens with Bhagyashree sitting in front of the dresser in her room in sadness. Lakshmikant Berde tries to cheer her. Salman Khan begins the song. She laughs at the way both the boys try to cheer her up. Both the boys begin to dance. The next shot is of the open table tennis court where Bhagyashree joins Salman Khan in a match. She wins the match.
He becomes mock upset and the next instant smiles. This time Bhagyashree and Lakshmikant Berde perform a few dance steps. In the next shot, they are lying down on the grassy border of a road where some youths are racing on motorbikes. Salman Khan and Bhagyashree also join them and Salman Khan wins.
Salman Khan convinces Bhagyashree to drive his car and she does it very awkwardly. Lakshmikant Berde is sleeping on the back seat. Suddenly, one of the tyres gets punctured. Bhagyashree and Salman Khan change the tyre together after they transfer Lakshmikant Berde to a grassy patch of land.
The car suddenly begins to move. It is Lakshmikant Berde, who is driving the car. A change in location later, Huma Khan, who is the milkmaid supplying milk to them, comes along to dance with the servants in the house. She approaches Lakshmikant Berde and begins to dance. He also replies to her in the song.
They dance until Rajeev Verma comes with a serious expression on his face. In the next shot, Bhagyashree is cycling on a garden path and Salman Khan skates along. The song peters out and the video ends as Bhagyashree begins to lose her balance.
Artists: The playback of this song was sung by S P Balasubramaniam and Lata Mangeshkar and the onscreen performances are by Salman Khan, Bhagyashree, Lakshmikant Berde, Huma Khan and others.
Cultural Influence: This is a simple filmi song affirming the platonic friendship between the hero and the heroine. Though the song talks of platonic friendship, there are some inappropriate gestures by the actors playing the servants of the house. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
