Does the name Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor ring a bell in our minds? No? But if I say “Nandu, sabka Bandhu”, will that help us to identify the person I am talking of? I think the answer will be yes, by some of the regulars in the blog. Now one more famous line from this actor—“main crime master GO-GO, ankhen nikal ke goti kheloonga”. I can quote so many of his dialogues that I will stop here or the readers will say –“Samajhta nahin hai yaar” (she is boring us). Now I am sure that all of you would have come pretty close to identifying the actor who celebrated his 58th birthday yesterday (3rd September).
(Note: The article was received in good time yesterday, but could not be posted in time. :) )

I am sure we have all loved and loved to hate the characters played by this multi talented entertainer. He been around since 1975 but it was his performance in the movies ‘Qurbani’ (1980) and ‘Rocky’ (1981) really got him his place in Bollywood. There was a time in the early 80s when along with Kader Khan, Aruna Irani and Asrani he was present in all of Jeetendra’s movies. The heroines would change but this four were a must in the movies of that time.  Jackie Shroff played his chamcha (lieutenant) in “Swami Dada” and he went on to become the villain in Jackie’s debut movie (as hero) “Hero”  the very next year. He has completed 40 years in the industry and now his daughter is also walking in his footsteps. He is a decent dancer, although he was made to lose in a competition scene in the 1981 ‘Rocky’, as the storyline of the movie required the hero Sanjay Dutt to win. He has shared dance scenes with Mithun Chakravarty, Govinda and Amitabh Bachchan too.

Let us have a dance number to wish this Dilliwaala Dilwaala a very Happy Birthday. It is the same one, I referred to in the previous para. It is written by Anand Bakshi and RD Burman is the music director. Jalal Agha plays the host for the competition and Shammi Kapoor is the chief guest. The play back singers are Pancham (aka RD Burman himself), Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.  Half way through the song the playback singer gets interchanged amongst the male artists— I think this is very rare. The dancers in this song are Sanjay Dutt, Rena Roy, Tina Munim and Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor a.k.a Shakti Kapoor. (I am sure everyone would have guessed it by now.)

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is not that Arvinder ji has requested this song loong back. His request is fairly recent. But he has been so consistently persistent that he has been reminding me at least twice a day (somedays even more than twice) to post this song. A song that has been in the memory for oh so long. But he could not find it anywhere on the internet and YouTube. When he checked with me a few days ago, I confirmed to him that yes, I have it. Then last week, it so happened that he was riding with me in my car, and I had the very CD in the player, that contains this song. When the song played, wow, the excitement on his face was something that has to be seen to be believed.

And so his persistence with reminders became even more acute. I could have given him the song on a pen drive or a CD. But for him, the primary listening mode is his own playlist on YouTube, which he accesses from his smartphone, and listens to his favorites, whenever and wherever. And so his continuous demand that this song be uploaded on the YouTube. [As he tells me, he does not know how to use a PC.  And so. . .]

Of course, besides and inspite of the consistent persistent pestering, I have to thank Arvinder ji for bringing back to memory one of those memorable songs that we heard the radio. The lilting and catchy tune of this song made me immediately sit up, when I pulled it out and heard it after Arvinder ji reminded me. What a wonderful melody this one is.

The film is ‘Bekhabar’ from 1965. Words are from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Music comes from the mind of S Mohinder, and the singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. Goodness, this song is waiting to be found. . . no, this song should not have been waiting to be found.

Ah but, enough said. Click the play button and listen to this charming quick paced folk style. And enjoy.

Song – . . . Ke Meethi Meethi Karejwaa Mein Peer Hoye Re (Bekhabar) (1965) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – S Mohinder
Chorus

Lyrics

khadi thi bagiya mein hairaan
ke aa gaye sainyyaan beimaan
kuchh aisa kas ke maara baan

sharam sainyyaan se mohe laagi

खड़ी थी बगिया में हैरान
के आ गए सैंय्यां बेईमान
कुछ ऐसा कस के मारा बान

ओ मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे
मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे
हम तो जानें दीवानी तू काहे को रोये रे
ओ मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे

शरम सैंय्यां से मोहे लागि
हाए॰ ॰ ॰
शरम सैंय्यां से मोहे लागि
छुड़ा के हाथ वहाँ से भागी
मैं बिरहन सारी रैना जागी
के मीठी मीठी
ओ मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे
हम तो जानें दीवानी तू काहे को रोये रे
ओ मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे

सुबह सैंय्यां आए घबरई के
हाए॰ ॰ ॰
सुबह सैंय्यां आए घबरई के
तबीयत पूछन लागे अई के
तो मैं बोली घूँघट सरकइ के

हम तो जानें दीवानी तू काहे को रोये रे
ओ मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे

पिया बोले नदिया ले जाऊँ

पिया बोले नदिया ले जाऊँ
मैं तेरा कंचन जी बहलाऊँ
मैं बोली ऊई मैं कैसे जाऊँ

हम तो जानें दीवानी तू काहे को रोये रे

ओ मीठी मीठी करेजवा में पीर होय रे

“Saaz Aur Aawaaz”(1966) was directed by Subodh Mukherji. The movie had Joy Mukherjee, Saira Banu, Kanhaiya Lal, Padma, Niranajan Sharma, Asit Sen, Mumtaz etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. I was under the impression that all the songs of this movie were already covered in the blog, with the last song discussed in 2013 itself. Now it turns out that I had had failed in counting the songs of this movie. The fact that I had not discussed one of the songs from the movie was pointed out by H M Aparna, who takes her role of tagging YIPPEED songs very seriously and who often detects songs whose links were missing despite the songs being discussed in the past. Now she has pointed out a song from ‘Saaz aur Aawaaz”(1966) which I had actually failed to discuss and still I had painted the title of this movie orange declaring that all nine songs of the movie were discussed.

Here is the ninth and final song from “Saaz Aur Aawaaz” (1966) which I had failed to discuss so far. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Khumar Barabankwi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Note: The link for video clip of this song is now available, courtesy Nitin ji. The song is a group dance with Padma Khanna as the lead dancer.

With this song, “Saaz Aur Aawaaz”(1966) now ACTUALLY joins the list of movies that have all its songs covered in the blog.

Today’s song is a special song-for me, because it is not only composed by one of my favourite composers, but it is also sung by him, as a duet with Shamshad Begum, in the film Hamaari Shaan-1951. Chitragupta is the composer / singer of this song.

In my opinion, out of all the composers ( including my favourite C. Ramchandra), these were the only 4 composers, whose compositions, I personally found very melodious in about 90% times. This is a very high percentage for melody, which not every composer can boast of ! These composers are….

Composer period of activity Total films Total songs average films/year
Hansraj Behl (19-11-1916 to 20-5-1985) 1946-1979 71 530 2
Khemchand Prakash(12-12-1907 to 10-8-1950) 1939-1950 46 437 4
Chitragupta (16-11-1917 to 14-1-1991) 1946-1988 148 1028 3
Ravi (3-3-1926 to 7-6-2012 ) 1955-1990 111 792 3

source-muvyz.

Composer Ravi was an assistant to Chitragupta in his early days. Both Chitragupta and Ravi also sang songs in Hindi films and in each other’s films as well. Chitragupta sang 28 songs in 15 films and Ravi sang 21 songs in 18 films. Additionally Ravi was also a Lyricist and wrote about 66 songs in 21 films.

Sometimes I wonder whether singers sang the best when singing for their favourite composers ? Just see the kind of singing Mukesh did for Shankar-jaikishen, Lata did for C.Ramchandra (during 1949-1958), Kishore did for S D Burman, Rafi for Naushad, Talat for Anil Biswas or Asha for first O P Nayyar and then R D Burman.

Lata was also very close to Chitragupta. Actually they had a small group, consisting of Prem Dhawan, Dilip Dholakia, Lata and Chitragupta. After every song recording, they all used to go to Chitragupta’s house in Khar and have a Bihari Lunch there. Lata was very fond of Bihari food. ( I too like Bihari Sattu ki poori and Aaloo ki sabji ). They used to go to Picnics also.

Film Hamaari Shaan-51 was produced by Nanabhai Bhatt and directed by his elder brother Balwat Bhatt. The early 50s was a period when many films used the theme of importance of Joint families or maintaining the old family traditions. The partition had practically broken many joint families and the family system in india was going through an upheaval, what with formation of smaller units of families in metropolitan towns,due to scarcity of space and increasing inflation. Elders in the society wanted old values to be nurtured further, but the whole system seemed to be heading for a transformation into nuclear family system-out of sheer necessity. If a family had 4 brothers,the parents would be with only one family, thus depriving 3 families of building values in the younger generations. The film industry was trying to re establish these but to no avail. Film Hamari shaan also was woven around such a theme.

The film was directed by the elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt- Balwant Bhatt. He was born at Porbandar, Gujarat on 13-1-1909. Balwant started his career by assisting Naval Gandhi in 1930-31 and then N.B.Vakil at Sagar Studios in 1932. He turned Director with the advent of Talkie films and joined Prakash Pictures with Actress-1934. His first film was Chalta purja-1932 and the last one was Nagin aur Sapera-1966. He directed 34 films, mostly stunt and C grade films. He directed some Gujarati films like Sansar Leela, Seth Sagsha, Diwadandi,Snehlata etc. He was the producer of Dillagi-1942, Gunehgar, Alif Laila etc. Diwadandi-1950 became famous for its song-” Taari aankhni afini”, sung by Dilip Dholakia with music by Ajit Merchant. His film Mordhwaj-52 was the Debut film for Music Director Narayan Dutt. Balwant Bhatt died on 7-2-1965, at Bombay.

There were 8 songs in “Hamaari Shaan”(1951), sung by 7 singers and written by 4 Lyricists. 5 songs are already posted and today’s song is the 6th song from this movie. The cast of the film was Durga Khote, Yaqub, Agha, David, Umakant, S.Nazir, Yashodhara katju, S N Tripathi, Bharat Bhushan, Veera, Meera etc etc. The story of the film was….

HAMARI SHAAN-1951 was a Deepak Pictures’ film.Produced by Nanabhai Bhatt,it was directed by Balwant Bhatt.The story/s-play/dialogues were byPt.Girish.MD was Chitragupta and Lyricists were Anjum Jaipuri,RMAKhan,S.K.Deepak and B.D.(Bhagwat datt)Mishra.

In a certain village in UP,a joint family of panditji resides. Panditji alias Harprasad, his wife Ganga, three children, their wives and an unmarried daughter Kumud who is engaged to Satish,s/o/ Damadi lal,who is stingy like his name.

Gopal is their neighbour. Hs sister kala’s marriage is broken as they can not give dowry of 2000 rupees. Kala tries suicide. Panditji not only saves her, but also gives Rs 2000- and gets her married. Gopal thus becomes his trusted assistant for ever.

One day Panditji dies while saving Damadilal from goons’ attack. His family gets fragmented with all brothers dividing property, but no one is ready to give 5000/- dowry for sister’s marriage. Gopal convinces Satish and he marries Kumud, without dowry, secretly. Damadilal, his father comes there, with Pistol to stop the marriage.

In the ensuing fight Gopal is killed accidentally by Damadilal’s gun. Damadilal repents, blesses the couple, gives all property to them and goes on a Teerthyatra.

The brothers also unite once again.

Here is this song from “Hamaari Shaan”(1951) which is sung by Shamshad Begam, Chitragupta and chorus. B D Mishra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This is a song from film Neelampari-1952. It is a duet of Asha Bhonsle and Geeta Roy, under the baton of composer Khwaja Khursheed Anwar.

Many readers may not be having much information about this Music Director, because he migrated to Pakistan in 1947. However he kept on visiting India on and off to compose music for a few films, till 1952. After this he never came for composing music in films.

The song under discussion today is from Yahudi ki Ladki-57. It is a duet sung by Shamshad Begam and Geeta Dutt. Hemant Kumar was the music director. This is one of the very few films in Hindi Film History, which had a similar story plot in four films at different times.

Here is a song from film Sindbad the sailor-52.

The name of Sindbad will remind you the storybooks we have read in our childhood. Sindbad,Allauddin, Alibaba,Birbal-Akbar, Haatimtai, Gulebakavali, Vetal Pachhisi and many such books have entertained the growing children for many generations in the past. I do not know what today’s generation young children read. But then, do they read at all ? I guess these children see the stories on TV-not the ones I have mentioned here. Their Heroes are different.

If we in this blog pride ourselves in the fact that we “dig” (literally and figuratively) old and obscure songs and share our findings, there have been other HFM lovers who have dug out information about lesser known artists from the past and brought them to limelight. Greta (Memsaab) has done a yeoman’s service in helping bring lesser known faces of Hindi movies to limelight. It is because of her amazing researches on lesser known artists that we now remember the names of artists like Nazir Kashmiri, Laxmi Chhaayaa, Bela Bose, Ted Lyons etc. In fact, I became aware of lead artists like Shakila, Shyama etc mainly because of her articles in her blog. This was in addition to her love for artists like Shammi Kapoor, Dara Singh, Ranjeet etc, of course.

When I started collecting cassettes in 1985, I was very crazy about purchasing of cassettes at regular intervals; I was always searching for songs of old films (especially of Rajesh Khanna films at that time).

It was my practice, beginning from 8th standard onwards that I would take up some part time job during my vacations which I would give up as classes would resume. I had taken up a part time job during the vacation period after class 12th as well, but unlike the previous years, I did not go back to my classes this time, rather I continued with this job since I was aware that I was going to fail in my exams.

Today (18 july 2015) is the third death anniversary of Rajesh Khanna ( 29 december 1942- 18 july 2012). People who only read about his superstardom in article and who did not live through that era will not be able to understand what that meant. The entire India was head over heels in love with Rajesh Khanna from late 1960s to early 1970s. Like all good things, it was too good to last forever, though. Rajesh Khanna was not able to handle his superstardom and he began to alienate those who had helped him reach the top. The same people who helped him reach the top began to desert him in favour of the next superstar in the making, viz Amitabh Bachchan, who was better equipped to handle his superstardom.

What is this blog all about

This blog discusses Bollywood songs of yesteryears. Every song has a brief description, followed by a video link, and complete lyrics of the song.

This is a labour of love, where "new" songs are added every day, and that has been the case for more than seven years. This blog has over 11300 song posts by now.
