Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) Vs HAHK (1994)

Today’s third post is Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) Vs HAHK (1994). I was introduced to Nadiya Ke Paar in the early 1980s by the radio channel Vividh Bharati when they were promoting the movie. But, I never got to watch the movie before the time I posted the reviews of its songs here. On the other hand, I had the compulsion to watch HAHK (1994) or Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (1994) with Mom and my sister because my sister is a diehard fan of Salman Khan. I found comparing the 2 movies very interesting.

Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) Vs HAHK (1994)

  1. HAHK (1994) is a clear remake of Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) and was released 12 years after the first movie was. The story has been made modern for the changing audience’s tastes.
  2. The language in which Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) has been made is a mixture of Awadhi and Bhojpuri and HAHK (1994) is modern Hindi.
  3. With modernity, the remake has taken on a subtle amount of vulgarity. My argument is that a modern tale can be told decently. I guess in the above sense Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) was a better movie, with no vulgarity.
  4. According to the 2 movies, a girl did not have a right to choose her life-partner in the early 1980s and even in the 1990s. They have to attain their choices after a lot of struggle or divine intervention.
  5. HAHK (1994) was considered to represent cultural values. But, other than Mayi ni Mayi… there is no folk dance or song, which could represent the 2 families’ traditions.
  6. The music of the latter movie by Raam-Lakshman was more popular than Ravindra Jain’s compositions in Nadiya Ke Paar (1982).

Nadiya Ke Paar (1982) songs

Jab tak poore na ho phere saat…

Sanchi kahe tore aawanse hamre…

Aaj hamare dil mein…

Joote lelo paise de do…

Babul jo tumne sikhaya…

Dhiktana dhiktana dhiktana…

Chocolate lime juice…

Yeh mausam ka jadoo hai mitwa…

Didi tera devar deewana…

Pehle pehla pyar hai…

Dhiktana dhiktana dhiktana (Version 2)

Mayi ni mayi…

Lo chali main…

Mujhse juda hokar…
