I take this occasion to recall an old Hindi movie titled ‘April Fool’ (1964) Its brief story line was as under :
Ashok comes from a wealthy family, which is run by his dad, and elder brother, Alok. Ashok himself is a slacker, and is only interested in slacking, and playing practical jokes, and no doubt his favorite day is fool’s day, April 1st, when he outdoes himself. His jokes befriend him with Madhu, and both fall in love. Then a practical joke hits the truth, and both Ashok and Madhu become targets of an international gang, and must run for their own safety, as well as for the safety of their respective families.
The cast and other details of this fun movie were :
Director: Subodh Mukherji
Writers: Agha Jani Kashmiri (dialogue), Subodh Mukherji (screenplay)
Stars: Saira Banu, Biswajeet and Jayant
Original Music by : Jaikishan Dayabhai Pankal (as Jaikishan) and by Shankar Singh Raghuwanshi (as Shankar)
I also recall some of the songs from this movie but the major attraction was the title song “April Fool Banaya,Tau Un Ko Gussa Aaya” !
Here is a YOUTUBE link to the song :
(The video only shows Md Rafi’s picture)
So here is the original link on the lead players:
(This video has the English translation as well)
(Another surprise-this song has some dialogues in the voice of Saira Banu herself in between the verses-a novelty in those times !)
