Anamika (Hindi: अनामिका) is a 1973 Hindi film made in India and directed by Raghunath Jalani. It is a romantic, suspense film with memorable songs by composer R.D. Burman and lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri, such as "Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si" sung by Kishore Kumar and "Bahon Mein Chale Aao" sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

This film is unrelated to the 2008 film Anamika starring Dino Morea.[1]


It is the story of a reclusive writer (Sanjeev Kumar) who finds a young woman (Jaya Bhaduri) thrown from a speeding car with her hands tied and her mouth gagged. He, his uncle, and his secretary (Asrani) take the unconscious girl home, and when she wakes up the next morning, she doesn't remember anything about her life and insists that she is the writer's wife. The uncle convinces the writer to humor the girl until she regains her memory. In the meantime, she shows him the crazy, fun part of life. He calls her Anamika, which means "Girl without a Name." As he is falling in love with her, he sees clues about her past that raise more questions: Is she a married woman named Archana or is she a prostitute named Kanchan? Just as unexpectedly as she had come into his life, she leaves him. When he sees her again at a party, she refuses to recognize him. The movie's mystery deepens as the writer finds out who the woman actually is.




Film expert and musicologist Rajesh Subramanian says the song Bahon mein chale aao was shot at Sur Mandir (bungalow owned by S D Burman) at Khar Road and the swing used in the song was actually purchased by R D Burman for his first wife Rita Patel.

All lyrics written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, all music composed by Rahul Dev Burman.
