Mumbai: Zee Classic will air Hum Kisise Kum Naheen as a part of ‘Nasir Hussain Film Festival’ on Sunday, 14th January 2018 at 12 noon.
Produced and Directed by Nasir Hussain, Hum Kisise Kum Naheen has an ensemble cast, comprising of Rishi Kapoor, Kajal Kiran, Tariq Khan with supporting artists Amjad Khan, Zeenat Aman, Om Shiv Puri and Tom Alter playing pivotal roles. This 1977 release is a Bollywood masala movie which has action, romance and drama galore. Talking of masala movies one cannot help but think of the pioneering man – Nasir Hussain who introduced this genre to Bollywood. Along with this super hit formula that defines present day ‘Bollywood’ movies, no Nasir Hussain movie could ever be complete without foot-tapping music or romantic songs; that was typical of the musical entertainer that the legendary man was.
Remember the song Bachna Aye Haseeno, whose remixed version happens to be a party anthem even today? Or, ‘Kya Hua Tera Wada’ which is sung by almost every heart-broken lover? Bringing the best of pop-culture from the 70’s, this Nasir Hussain movie – Hum Kisise Kum Naheen features songs by veteran singers Mohammad Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle including Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yeh Ladka Hai Allah Kaisa Hai, Hai Agar Dushman (Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahi) and Mil Gaya Hum Ko Saathi to name a few. While the music of Mamamia was used as the inspiration for Mil Gaya Hum Ko Saathi, ABBA’s Honey Honey also features in the movie and can be seen playing in the background just before the song ‘Kya Hua Tera Waada’ begins.
Hum Kisise Kum Naheen begins with a wealthy man who sells his entire estate in Africa and converts it to diamonds. He carries them in a belt, when he suffers a heart attack in the rest-room, he requests a passer-by to deliver the diamonds to his son, Rajesh (Rishi Kapoor) which ends up in a bicycle toolbox that belongs to Sanjay Kumar (Tariq Khan). Meanwhile, Saudagar Singh (Amjad Khan) the antagonist sends his goons to find the diamonds.
The movie is packed with love, drama and revenge where star-crossed lovers try their best to meet, whilst a son looks for the diamonds bequeathed to him by his father and gets trapped in a web of lies.
