Today’s post is the analysis of the song, Har koi chahata hai, which appears in the movie, Ik Mutthi Aasman (1973). The song has been analyzed on the basis of its context and visualization.
Movie – Ik Mutthi Aasman (1973)
The song, Har koi chahata hai, was featured in Pragati Chitra International’s socio-famrama, Ik Mutthi Aasman (1973), the producer-director being Virendra Sinha and starred Vijay Arora, Radha Saluja, Pran, etc.
Sudarshan (Vijay Arora) is from the Indian Navy and most times, while on a vacation, gets into a fight with the other crew members of the Indian Navy Ship INS Vikrant. K A Papachan (Pran) asks Sudarshan about the reason for the fights that the younger man begins. Sudarshan confesses that he doesn’t have a family and to hide the fact, he became aggressive. At this point, K A Pappachan says that he is also alone in this world and sings this song.
Song – Har koi chahata hai
The lyrics of the song, Har koi chahata hai, were penned by Indeevar and set to music by Madan Mohan.
The man sings, “Everyone wants a bit of the top most personal space of their own.”
Video – Har koi chahata hai
Director of Photography is Sudarshan Naag.
The video opens with a humming sound in the background. INS Vikrant is shown in its full glory, as the camera settles on Pran’s back. Pran turns around and begins to sing. He is trying to convince Vijay Arora. Soon, Vijay Arora is convinced and seen in civil clothes, disembarking from INS Vikrant. Pran is seen saluting from a lower deck. The song and the video end there.
Kishore Kumar has sung this song for Pran and Vijay Arora and others are also seen in the video.
There is no influence of any culture over this song. I find that the song has a lot of philosophical inclination. The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
