Sunghursh

Sunghursh is a 1968 Indian Hindi film directed and produced by Harnam Singh Rawail. It is based on a short story Layli Asmaner Ayna in Bengali language by Jnanpith Award-winning writer Mahasweta Devi, which presents a fictionalised account of vendetta within a thuggee cult in the holy Indian town of Varanasi; the film stars Dilip Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar, Balraj Sahni, Deven Verma, Durga Khote and Iftekhar. The music is by Naushad and lyrics for the songs are by Shakeel Badayuni. Naushad and Badayuni had worked together on many films and were "the most sought after" composer-lyricist duo of the time in Bollywood. Sunghursh was popularly mistaken to be a debut film of Sanjeev Kumar, it did well commercially on release and is called a "classic" Bollywood film. It is the last film where Vyjayanthimala worked together; the actors had done a great number of films together in the lead roles, every one was a commercial success. The director Harnam Singh Rawail's son Rahul Rawail, a director, paid a tribute to this film by titling one of his as Jeevan Ek Sanghursh starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.

Bhavani Prasad is a powerful Shakta priest at Kashi. Prasad, a devotee of the black goddess Kali and a thuggee, religiously follows a practice to murder wealthy travelers who stay in his pilgrim guesthouse and offers them as a sacrifice to Kali. Prasad's son Shankar does not agree to such practices, opposes his father and decides to leave the village with his wife and their three children: Kundan and Gopal. Prasad forcibly takes Kundan with him to follow in his footsteps and forbids him from seeing the rest of the family. Young Kundan is now being raised by his grandfather Prasad, who desires to have Kundan as his successor, head of a temple and pilgrim guesthouse on the banks of the Ganges river. Prasad mysteriously puts the blame on his enemy and nephew, Naubatlal. Prasad had earlier killed Naubatlal's father; when Naubatlal learns the truth, he decides to take revenge, but Prasad kills Naubatlal before he could do anything. Naubatlal's family decides to leave the village and settle down Calcutta where his two young sons and Ganeshi Prasad, work as merchants.

They learn about their father's death from their mother and swear to avenge their father's death by killing Prasad and his grandson Kundan. Kundan continues to serve Prasad in the Banaras temple, but does not follow the practice of killing people; when he is invited to his younger sister, Yashodha's marriage, Kundan gets a chance to visit his mother and grandmother and his siblings after many years. One day, Kundan meets Laila-E-Aasmaan, a courtesan, in the temple who has come from Calcutta after her madam's death. Kundan falls in love with Munni. Kundan proposes to Laila, but Prasad does not agree to the marriage, knowing that Laila was hired by Dwarka and Ganesh Prasad to seduce Kundan and bring him to them. Kundan decides to end the feud with Dwarka. Dwarka attacks Kundan, but gets killed my him; as repentance for his grandfather's sins, Kundan decides to serve Ganeshi and takes another identity, that of Bajrangi to make peace with him, only to realise that Ganeshi Prasad is in love with Laila and wants to marry her as his second wife.

Director Rawail had considered Sadhana to play the lead actress of the film. He had waited for months to sign her in his Mere Mehboob, but now the actress had developed thyroid problems and took a break from acting for treatment in Boston. Rawail signed Vyjayanthimala for the role. Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala who had worked together for Naya Daur were said to have a romantic affair; the actors parted. Thus, most of the scenes between the two actors for Sungharsh were shot separately; when the film was near completion, it was rumoured that with the increasing conflicts between the two leading actors, Vyjayanthimala would be replaced by another actress, Waheeda Rehman. Rehman had replaced Vyjayanthimala in another Hindi film starring Kumar, Ram Aur Shyam, being shot with Sunghursh. Vyjayanthimala declined the claim of her leaving the film when it was about to finish its shooting. Sungharsh was the last film where Vyjayanthimala worked together. By both the actors had done the maximum number of films together and each was a commercial success.

Sanjeev Kumar, who had acted in theatre and other smaller film productions, was noticed through his performance of negative role through Sungharsh and he shot to fame. He was commended for his role while a newcomer as compared with established actors like Dilip Kumar and Balraj Sahni; the film was popularly mistaken to be his debut. As Sungharsh was set in Varanasi during the 19th century, Rawail took special care about the costumes and sets to create the look for the period; the actor-director Rajesh Roshan had worked as an assistant director on the film. The music for all the songs is composed by Naushad and the lyrics are written by Shakeel Badayuni. Naushad and Badayuni had worked together on many films and were "the most sought after" composer-lyricist duo of the time in Bollywood, their collaborations of Baiju Bawra, Mother India, Mughal-e-Azam and more are quite popular. They had worked with Rawail and had given the musical hit Mere Mehboob in 1963; the film's soundtrack has seven songs sung by Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar with one song sung by Asha Bhosle.

All are solo songs where Naushad used the music fro
