Jindagi Ko ke Bharosa
Yo Ta Sano Khelauna Ho
Dui Aankhama Ek Ma Hanso
Arko Ma Ruhai Chha
Ratri Ko Andheri Bhihani Ko Sunaulo
Yehi Nai Sansar Ko Rit Ho Sathi
Har Ek Palma Dukhai Dukha Chha
Sukha Ta Bahana Nai Ho
Aauna saans afno Nai Nimti
Jana saans Aarkai Ko Nimti
Jindagi Ko Ke Bharosa
Mritu Ko Badal Le Gherekai Chha
Dui Aankhama Ek Ma Hanso
Aarko Ma Ruhai Chha
Jagit Singh’s Jeevan Kya Hai
Jeevan kyaa hai chalataa phirataa ek khilonaa hai
do aankhon men ek se hansanaa ek se ronaa hai
jo jii chaahe vo mil jaaye kab aisaa hotaa hai
har Jeevan Jeevan jiine kaa samajhautaa hai
ab tak jo hotaa aayaa hai vo hii honaa hai
raat andherii bhor suhaanii yahii zamaanaa hai
har chaadar men dukh kaa taanaa sukha kaa baanaa hai
aatii saans ko paanaa jaatii saans ko khonaa hai

I was at Paljor Stadium watching one of the semi finals where I came across two boys still in their teens behind me chatting over the match and their confusion over the personality of Pem Dorji. They had never come across the name of Pem Dorji and were rather in a belief that the person might be some yesteryear female football player. I was giving ear to their talks with disbelief.

The film was shot in short span and directed by Ugen Chopel who went on to become a famed director of Nepali cinema. Saino was more than a cinematic brilliance with dialogues of character actors getting mass appreciation. Who can forget the lines like “daiba ko daya lay….and the Pukar Gurung’s act with his signature line…” koi cha mah sangha khelnay”. Saino was later made into Bengali and Hindi film but with little success. But its Hindi serial version “Ajnabi” was a big nationwide hit in Doordarshan.
These days I am thinking….samay pani thikkai ko chaaa…there should be the sequel of Saino. In the last scene Danny is being shown as going with the Police men in their police jeep and I still recollect the last line Tripti says something like “hami parkhinay chau” so, how about Danny returning back after his jail term. I am sure we would love to see how his relationship with Tripti and his small mitzu carry on after such a long time. With Tripti back on her acting forefront she can match the screen presence of Danny. Pheri kunai ramro Nepali film nahereh ko pani tah barsai bhayo ni…..!!
We just would like the trio of Danny Denzongpa, Ugen Choppel and Ranjit Gazmer to bring back the old magic…once more!!
