Jawani Diwani (Hindi: जवानी दिवानी; traduction: Crazy youth) is a 1972 Bollywood movie directed by Narender Bedi, and starring Randhir Kapoor, Jaya Bhaduri, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, as leads. This was also Kader Khan's debut as a dialogue writer.

The film is most remembered for its songs by R.D. Burman, including, "Jaane Jaan Doodta Phir Ruha", "Saamne Yeh Koun Aaya", "Nahi Nahi Abhi Nahi" and "Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani". The film was a musical hit and the eighth highest grossing film at the Indian Box Office.[1]

After being stereotyped in the girl-next-door image after her Bollywood debut film, Guddi (1971),[2] Jaya Bhaduri tried to break out of the mould with a glamorous role in the film.[3]


Madhu (Nirupa Roy) falls in love with Ravi Anand (Balraj Sahni), son of an employee in her Thakur brother's (Iftekhar) household. When they get married, the Thakur breaks all ties with them, she moves into Ravi's home, where they live with his younger brother, Vijay (Randhir Kapoor). Subsequently, Vijay meets a girl, Neeta (Jaya Bhaduri), at school, with the usual problems with parents. She turns out to be the Thakur's daughter, who has been promised in marriage to Benny Sinha (Narendra Nath).




R. D. Burman composed and produced the music for this movie. The lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi. The song, "Jaane Jaan Dhoondta Phir Raha" made it to #26 on the Binaca Geetmala annual list 1972. The title of the hit film, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) was taken from a hit song from the film.[4]
