Rajesh Khanna - The Phenomena (2012)

जिन्दगी बादी होनी चाहिहे लम्बी नही।..!!!

His famous dialogue from the evergreen movie "Anand"

He wrote a new chapter in the movie..irrespective of the language barrier.  He created his own path..where few dreaded to tread along.

His style, the looks, the tweaky smile, nodding head..all these made him a first of its kind in the movie world. He was simple man's lover boy.  

The scene where Rajesh says to Amitabh..."am seeing my death in your eyes..." my all time favorite dialogue. The beauty of friendship echoes in those words!!!!

The greatest movies I admire him was in Anand,  Namak Haram & Bawarchi. These are the perfect university for how lead the life.  

I admire him on most of his movies...but the best pick are :

1. Anand : How to lead the life when you know you are at the end of the tunnel.  His body language, dialogues, songs..his jugal bandhi with Amitabh, Johny Walker are still fresh in my memory.

2. Namak Haram : Always look at the situation from close with them..then you realise the pain.  How neatly explains this basic principle in the movie..tailor made for Rajesh & Amitabh.

3. Baawarchi: Always we tend to miss the small small things which blows us out of the proportion..and ultimately we live in the mess...just take the small threads & neatly tie becomes a perfect fabric.  just iron out the small small will get wrinkle free beautifully essayed in this movie.

Ironically all the above three movies were from the table of Hrishikesh Mukherjee..and no doubt all these are few master pebbles from his table.

Long live Rajesh will be there with us forever... dialogue from your own movie...

आनंद मरा नही...आनंद मरेते नही।.. 

राजेश खन्न मरा नही राजेश खन्न मरते नही।..


  1. Wonderful tribute to a truly wonderful actor! His performance in Anand still gives me the goosebumps. Never seen a better movie or acting than that!
    He truly will live our hearts and minds.

  2. ಮನಸ್ಸು ಯಾಕೋ ವಿಹ್ವಲವಾಯಿತು ಸಾರ್,

    ಉಜ್ವಲವಾಗಿ ಬೆಳಗಿದ ತಾರೆಯೊಂದು ಕಾಲಾಂತರದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ಮಂದಿಯ ಅವಗಣನೆಗೆ ಗುರಿಯಾಗಿ ನಶಿಸಿಹೋಗುವಾಗ ಅದರ ಒಡಲ ನೋವು ಕೇಳುವವರೇ ಇರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ.

    ಒಬ್ಬ ಸೂಪರ್ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ ತಾನು ಕೊಟ್ಟ ಯಶಸ್ಸುಗಳ ಸರ ಮಾಲೆಯನ್ನು ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗ ಕೆಲವೇ ಸೋಲುಗಳಿಂದ ತೊಳೆದು ಹಾಕುತ್ತದೆ.

  3. Dear Srikanth,
    I loved Rajesh Khanna very much in Amar Prem, Anand and Safar. His acting capabilities are unquestionable. Many of his filmy dialogues came true in his real life, that was the real tragedy. Rajesh khanna as an actor, he is ever loved.
    A good tribute to him

  4. Prashanth..Thank you So much..Some movies, characters etch a permanent mark in our souls..We may or may not like the person..but the characters/portraits..are indelible..

  5. Yes Badari Sir..Tradewaalaha's neither digest the success nor failure..Rajesh Khanna belongs to leauge of his own..

  6. Prakasha Chikkappa..

    The characters he played on the screen are one can come near it..Sometimes it happens..they become characters itself in reel and real life..
