'Awaara' of Raj Kapoor & its Turkey connection

Raj Kapoor's Awaara in Turkish

The IMDB entry has this interesting information:
Comment 1: "The movie and the song were quite famous in Turkey during 50s, 60s, 70s and even 80s and it inspired a whole genre of films produced in Turkey"

Comment 2: "yes, it is. it is remade starring Sadri Alisik and Ajda Pekkan in Turkiye. The remake was named "avare" and released in 1964."

[Btw, IMDB lists a 1970 Turkish remake of the same name too.]

Sure enough, here's the Turkish version and the Turkish version of the song.
And yes, hear Raj Kapoor "speak" in Turkiye in the final scene of the dubbed version of Awaara. Beautiful. And other scenes from links.

I found other Turkish sites/youtube videos where there are references to it:
like this tv dance competition, this remixed version (Hindi and Turkiye), and this looks like a wedding celebration dance set to the song.

Nice post.Music and translation is shown to be a fascinating area to explore, not only for specialized translators as well as for researchers in translation studies, cultural studies, media studies and musicology.I might say that having music translated on Turkish translation or in any languages is far good to be one of the samples that beginners on tranlation to be practiced.
