Hunsnwale tera jawab nahin (Version 2) – Mohammad Rafi – Ravi – Rajendra Kumar | Gharana (1961)


This is a second version of the song, picturized differently, in a different situation.

Movie – Gharana (1961):

Hunsnwale tera jawab nahin (Version 2) appeared in 1961 Gemini Studios’ hit family drama Gharana (1961) produced and directed by S S Vasan. The movie starred Rajendra Kumar, Raaj Kumar, Asha Parekh, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, Devika, Shobha Khote, Agha, Vijayalakshmi, Krishna Kumari, Master Pappu, Moppet Raju, etc.

Tyrannical Shanta (Lalita Pawar) runs the large household of her husband Ramdas (Bipin Gupta), with a strict baton in hand. The movie makers have intentionally given this character the name Shanta, which is paradoxical, considering the character-traits. Ramdas is a very religious but meek man, who allows his wife to bully everyone in the house. Gauri (Krishna Kumari) is the eldest widowed DIL of the house. She has 2 naughty little boys (Master Pappu and Moppet Raju).

Ramdas’ second son is Kailash (Raaj Kumar), who is married to Sita (Vijayalakshmi), who loves her husband and is devoted to him. College student Kamal, Ramdas’ youngest son is in love with another student Usha (Asha Parekh). Bhairavi (Shobha Khote), the old couple’s youngest child is married but gave up her married home to return to her mother’s place, due to a trivial matter. Sarang (Agha), Bhairavi’s husband is also living in the household trying to convince his wife to return home, with him. Bhairavi is the typical spoilt brat.

Sita becomes pregnant, soon and begins to be treated well by her MIL, Shanta. Bhairavi cannot tolerate this. Bhairavi has placed seeds of distrust in the heart of Kailash about his wife and brother. He, often, listens to only some part of the conversation between Kamal and Sita and decides that all is not hunky dory with them. Kamal and Usha get married.

During the reception, Kailash sees Kamal make a beeline to Sita, in her room, since she has not come for the reception due to ill-health. Kailash misinterprets the conversation between his wife and brother. The older man takes his car and drives off at breakneck speed and is about to plunge into a large abyss created by some damage to a mountain road. His friend’s sister, Ragini (Minoo Mumtaz) stops him from taking the extreme step and takes him to her home.

Bhairavi begins to create a rift between Usha and Shanta. When Kamal protests, Sita insists that he and Usha apologize to Shanta. Sita and Kamal are trying to maintain the unity in the joint family, in their own ways. Ragini is a dancer. As she and Kailash are returning from a performance, Usha sees them together in Ragini’s car. When Usha tries to tell Kamal about his brother being with another girl, he slaps her because he blindly believes that his brother would not be disloyal to his wife. Usha feels offended and Kamal sings this song to placate her.

The first version is a day-dreaming song sequence for Asha Parekh. How can Rajendra Kumar know that song? Asha Parekh is still crying. As the song proceeds further, she begins to smile and runs into his arms. The song peters out and the video ends there.

Cultural Influence:

This is a typically romantic filmi song where the hero tries to mollify the offended heroine. Some men think praising the beauty of a girl can mollify her. That is the attitude of most lyricists. The musical instruments used in this subtle song are different from that of the first version. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
