1972 - "Bombay to Goa"



Bombay to Goa is a 1972 adventure-comedy Hindi movie starring Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Aruna Irani and Mehmood. The movie is known particularly for its catchy tunes.

The film is a remake of a 1966 hit Tamil film Madras to Pondicherry.[1] It was a 'Semi-Hit' at the box office.

Bombay to Goa was remade in 2007 with an ensemble cast of comedians.


Storyline

The lives of Atmaram (Nazir Hussain) and his wife (Dulari) are turned upside down when they see their daughter, Mala's (Aruna Irani) pictures in a magazine. They arrange for Mala's marriage with the son of Ramlal (Agha). Mala is opposed to marrying anyone who she has not met, and is at the same time thrilled that the two persons she trusted, one Sharma (Shatrughan Sinha), and the other Verma (Manmohan) had actually submitted her pictures to a magazine, and were now willing to sign her up for a Bollywood movie. Mala is not able to understand her parents' opposition on her way to fame, and runs away from home with a lot of money and hands this money to Sharma and Verma. Greed overtakes Sharma and Verma, leading to the death of Verma. Mala, who witnessed Sharma kill Verma, now is on the run for her life. She boards a bus from Bombay which bound for Goa. Sharma soon overtakes her, and has one of his armed men on the bus to kill her. And then arrives Mala's admirer Ravikumar (Amitabh Bachchan), who not only protects Mala, but also accompanies her throughout the journey. Mala starts to trust and subsequently fall in love with Ravikumar. The bus journey is adventurous with the passengers, a totally mixed bunch, from all over India, different religions, cultures, and faiths, all thrown together for this journey. The bus is in the "control" of driver Rajesh (Anwar Ali), and conductor, Khanna (Mehmood).

Production

Amitabh Bachchan has had an illustrious career that has spanned decades. However, his official launchpad into cinema was the 1972 film Bombay to Goa, which was directed by S Ramanathan. So when the Big B heard that the director had passed on, he took to Twitter to express his grief yesterday. "S Ramanathan, director and producer of many of my films, friend .. passes away this afternoon .. No words to express grief ..!! Ramanathan ji ... a kind and righteous soul, god fearing and dedicated to his work - from 'Bombay to Goa' to 'Zamaanat' .. prayers!" The news seemed to put the veteran actor in a contemplative mood, as he later tweeted, "The world has still not found the correct protocol for death .. each have their own interpretation and emotion ... (sic)" S Ramanathan, who was known as Sir ji in the Indian film industry, was born and brought up in Bangalore and had his initial moorings in theatre.

Cast

Trivia

Mehmood offered the role of Ravikumar to future Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. Mehmood specially made this movie to launch his brother Anwar Ali and Amitabh Bachchan


IMDB
- 'Mehmood' offered the the role of Ravikumar to future Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
- The title song, "Bombay Goa" uses the music to the Beach Boys song "Help Me Rhonda"
  
- Amitabh Bachchan pressured Shatrughan Sinha to do the villain's role, although he wasn't keen on doing the it. He agreed only because of their close friendship from their struggling days.

- Shooting 'Dekha Na Haaye Re...' was a nightmare since Amitabh Bachchan required numerous retakes

- Mehmood was producing Bombay to Goa (1972) and wanted a protagonist for it. He was brain storming with his colleagues so as to who should be cast for the lead role when a certain somebody entered the room. He had met him only once before. He saw him and suggested to his colleagues that why don't we cast this "Lamba Ghoda" (Tall Horse). His colleagues agreed later on and the role went to Amitabh Bachchan.

- Aruna Irani was the only heroine who agreed to work with Amitabh Bachchan as he wasn't as popular those days.

- The driver and the conductor in this movie are named Rajesh and Khanna respectively. This was a tribute to the super-stardom of Rajesh Khanna who was the toast of Hindi cinema when the movie was released.

- The film was a remake of Tamil film Madras to Pondicherry which was directed by Thirumalai-Mahalingam who was director S. Ramanathan's Guru.
