As our readers must be knowing by now, a biopic on the first dancing hero of our country – Bhagwan Dada – has been made and is ready for release. Bhagwan Dada was a pioneer in making dancing popular in Hindi cinema and a long list of dancing heroes from Rishi Kapoor to Prabhu Deva owe a bit to him. However, he is a name that is forgotten today.
Bhagwan Dada introduced choreographed dancing to Hindi cinema with his film Albela in the 1950s. The film had eleven songs, but the two of the most popular songs from the film are ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ and ‘Bholi Surat Dil Ke Khote’. The video of ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ has already been released and appreciated. Lot of accolades were showered on the song for the accurate recreation of the 1950s era and also for the elegant moves by Mangesh Desai who plays Bhagwan Dada and Hindi star Vidya Balan who is playing Geeta Bali.This is the first time any major actress from Hindi cinema would be playing any role in a Marathi film.
Now, here you can see that the same feel and touch has been maintained in the song ‘Bholi Surat Dil Ke Khote’ as well. The song has Vidya Balan and Mangesh Desai gracefully performing the trademark choreography that was so popular back then. The extras, the costume and the sets all take you back to the wonderful 1960s. One thing you can’t fail to notice in the song is that not only a lot of hardwork but also a lot of heart and love has gone into making it and that definitely comes across.
The film releases on 24th June and the lovely songs and the interesting promos have without doubt piqued the interest of film enthusiasts.
