Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

(1980 – Duet)

A brief and approximate view of the numbers from Rafi Sb’s career. I am basing this view on the data available in the Rafi Song list, and from browsing of the Geet Kosh. In the 1940s, starting from 1945 and upto 1950, his film songs number less than 200, approximately in the range of 165 to 170. Then in the 1950s, this number rises dramatically. An approximation is 1370 film songs in that decade. In the 1960s, we see a furhter improvement in this number – the approximate number of songs as per records is 1500, plus or minus 10. As we come into the 70s, there is a drop in this number. The records show that there are approximately 1025 songs in the decade from 1971 to 1980. I would like to add that these numbers also include the known songs from unreleased films, i.e. songs that were recorded for films, but the films either did not get made or were not released.

A tabular view of this data is as below

1945 – 1950 ~ 165 or 170 songs
1951 – 1960 ~ 1370 songs
1961 – 1970 ~ 1500 songs
1971 – 1980 ~ 1025 songs

Without getting into a number to number comparison by decade, I would just add that the number Kishore Da’s songs in the decades of 1950 and 1960 are little less than 200 in each decade. In the decade of 1970s, number of film songs by him are well over a thousand. I do not have precise numbers but together in the 1970s and 1980s, Kishore Da’s has sung approximately 2200 songs in Hindi films. I would conjecture that the number of his songs in the 1980s would be higher. In the decade of 1980s, the choice of top singers that music directors and film producers had, got limited after the passing away of Rafi Sb in 1980.

The numbers, purely by themselves, do not really show any alarming decline. With the advent of Kishore Da into playback singing, yes, the space got shared. But in my opinion, the numbers do not show the much hyped decline. It is just an expected adjustment that is bound to happen when the space gets shared. The quality of rendition needs no arguments or advocacy, at all. The sampling that I have gone thru in this series, is reason enough to discard any such speculative theories. And I must add, that for every song that I have posted, there are many more fabulous and popular songs, that are already posted here on the blog, and many that are still waiting in the wings to be showcased here. For each year, I had list of up to six or eight un-posted songs that I picked as tops, and then short listed them to two for each year. For most years, I assure you, it was a difficult choice.

And as I was doing this sampling, out of curiosity, I did wander into the decade of 1980s also. In the past, I have not paid much attention to this decade. As I checked the lists and browsed on line, I am able to find a continuous string of songs in Rafi Sb’s voice all the way to 1989 – songs that were recorded before his passing away, and then used in films and released, as and when the films got ready. There is more than enough selection available to do another series on Rafi Sb’s songs in the 1980s. That, I am sure, will be of great interest – dealing with the creative work and the quality of an artist, after his departure from this world. Of course, the work is created before he departed, but it got slowly and progressively released to listeners and fans over a period of another decade.

The song in this post is a superlative gem by all measures (including the subdued calisthenics on screen, by Jeetendra ;) ). A wonderful duet sung with Lata Mangeshkar, from film ‘Aasha’. The lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and the music is composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. On screen, the song is performed by Reena Roy and Jeetendra. (A little clarification is required. The YT link says that the accompanying singer is Asha Bhonsle. Geet Kosh lists the singer name as Lata ji.) The video clip also shows Girish Karnad and Rameshwari, very briefly in the beginning. Elsewhere in the clip, we also see Om Prakash, playing the tabla in one of the scenes.

The film boasts of more very fabulous numbers – two more solos by Rafi Sb and one more duet with Lata ji, with another song – a prayer in the honor of Mother Goddess that Rafi Sb has sung in the company of legendary bhajan singer Narendra Chanchal. Each one of these songs are real memorable gems. Some of them already posted here – the wonderful “Jaane Hum Sadak Ke Logon Se Mehlon Waale Kyon Darte Hain”, and “Dhak Dhak Se Dhadaknaa Sikha De” . Besides the Lata solo number that is also heart stealer – “Sheehsha Ho Ya Dil Ho, Aakhir Toot Jaata Hai”.

The melody in this song is such a flowing pleasure, with voices and verses continuously melding into each other. Listening to this song fills the heart with such joy. Listen and enjoy.

NOTE: I did not deliberately included a goodbye to close this series. Because, the series has not yet ended, although we are at the target year that we had set. There sit still are some surprise posts to add to this series. More memories are still on way. :)

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 19

- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

(1980 – Solo)

It was 1980 that we lost this precious human being and an inimitable, pure and natural artist, to the directions of the Power that we humans do not understand. His gift of the voice and emotional empathy was bestowed by Him, and He chose to call back this endowment to the humanity. With all the hindsight and life’s experience we do understand the inevitability of this event, and our inability to do anything about it. Nothing but resigned acceptance is what we can offer. But in Rafi Sb’s case, one question does keep nagging, with regret – ‘Did it have to be so soon?’. Just at 56 years of age. And a voice that simply did not age at all. Nahm ji had commented a few days back on one of the songs – Rafi Sb’s voice is sounding younger than the actor who is performing on screen (it was Dharmendra, in film ‘Dharamveer’ from 1977).

As we are nearing the end of this series, we are actually getting to hear songs that are some of the very last that he would have recorded. The voice seems to carry on its endeavors, unchanged. One cannot feel any sign of the voice letting up. The intonations are as fresh as they were back in 1947, the gusto and the zest seems unchanged since ‘Yahoo’ happened (‘Junglee’, 1961).

But that is what we would like to believe. The person himself had other thoughts. Humble as ever, as he was, in the mid 1970s, he is said to have expressed a need to learn more at the feet of a proper guru, as he felt that his singing still needed improvements. A wonder that a singer of his caliber would think so. Or maybe it was not the singer thinking so, rather it was the person within the singer who was expressing his humble-ness, quite in line with the characteristics of the personality.

Coming to this solo song from 1980. Obscure and well known, both categories are generally progressing concurrently with every artist, all through the career. This gem of a song is from an obscure film that year – ‘Shaadi Se Pehle’. A film from the banner of SM productions, it is directed by Karunesh Thakur. The music is by Sapan Jagmohan, and the lyrics are written by Gauhar Kanpuri. The cast of actors lists the lead actors as Praveen Sood and Shahnaaz – names that do not ring any bells in the memory. Rest of the cast is recognizable – it includes Rajendranath, Raj Mehra, Komilla Wirk, Poornima, Jagdish Raj, Dheeraj Kumar, Surjit Kaur, Rajan Kapur amongst others.

A very lovely and aesthetic expression of the first tryst between lovers. The poetical paradigm is very endearing. The pace and the emphasis is just about perfect for the mood of such a song. And the rendering by Rafi Sb – I simply have no more words to say on that.

Listen and enjoy.


Song-Ik khoobsoorat ladki mujhe raat ko mili thhi (Shaadi Se Pehle)(1980) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Gauhar Kanpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

dulhan banaa ke laaye
baahon ki doli mein hum
us ko bithaa ke laaye
jab raat ho gayi to
armaanon ko jagaaya
yaani ke apni bigdi
taqdeer ko banaaya
naaraaz kaise hoti
naaraaz kaise hoti
wo so rahi thhi
haaye
ik khoobsoorat ladki
mujhe raat ko mili thhi
ik khoobsurat ladki
mujhe raat ko mili thhi

phoolon ki chaandni pe
hamne usey sulaaya
phir pyaar wyaar kar ke
seene se bhi lagaaya
aage naa hum se poochho
us raat hum kahaan thhe
dil dil se mil rahe thhe
do jism ek jaan thhe
maare sharam ke shamma
maare sharam ke shamma
gul ho gayi thhi
haaye

फूलों की चाँदनी पे
हमने उसे सुलाया
फिर प्यार व्यार करके
सीने से भी लगाया
आगे ना हमसे पूछो
उस रात हम कहाँ थे
दिल दिल से मिल रहे थे
दो जिस्म एक जान थे
मारे शरम के शम्मा
मारे शरम के शम्मा
गुल हो गई थी
हाए
इक खूबसूरत लड़की
मुझे रात में मिली थी
इक खूबसूरत लड़की
मुझे रात में मिली थी

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

(1979 – Duet)

We are now nearing the end of the decade. The selections continue to prosper. A good share of duets of 1979 are already posted here. And the selection of singing partners continues to be very varied. Besides Lata ji and Asha ji, other names are Hemlata, Anuradha Paudwal, Savita Suman, Usha Khanna etc. This duet, released during 1979, is sung along with Usha Mangeshkar.

The film is ‘Teen Chehre’. The song is essentially a ghazal that has been presented as a duet. The poet behind this ghazal is Saajan Dehlavi. The music is by Shyamji Ghanshyamji. The star cast of the film includes names like Sujit Kumar, Anjana, Ravi Raj, Jaishri T, Meena T, Nana Palsikar, Leela Patel, Ravindra Mahajan, Polson, Mohan Choti, Rekha Chauhan, Moolchand, Kalpana Dewan and others. Since only the audio of this song is available, it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to add more information in this regards.

I am running out of words and epithets to write, about the voice of Rafi Sb. In this song also, hearing his voice so lively and so full of enthusiasm, it is such an experience. No matter the situation, the artist on screen, the emotional content – he has just the right notes and emphasis to express and to render. And more than just rendering, he has this capability to make the listener feel and empathize with the emotion. Not many singers are able to do it. The experience of Rafi Sb voice is so unique. And yes, so everlasting.

Listen and enjoy.

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – -

(1979 – Solo)

This song by Rafi song has been a very dramatic reunion for me, and very that too, very recently. Although 1979, but who would even pay an iota of attention to a film titled ‘Badmaashon Ka Badmaash’. Till just two three weeks ago, I was not even aware that a film by this name exists. However, this song is one of the category which I call ‘heard-just-once-o-but-never-forgotten’. Times were fairly into the second half of seventies. We had moved into our own home by this time. And my family still did not own a TV. My mamma ji (maternal uncle) and his family had moved in with us. And the extended family was sharing their TV.

I believe it must have been some time earlier than 1979, that I heard this song for the first time. And once again, in a live program on Doordarshan. This one by Rafi Sb. I remember the evening pretty well. Rafi Sb being one of the favorites of my mamma ji, we watched this program together. He sang many hits and favorites to start with. During the latter half, he sang some poignant songs and a couple of somber ghazals. And close to the end, he himself said, the mood of the evening has become subdued, and so he is presenting this song. And without any additional information, he broke into this song. And I must say that he changed the somber mood within seconds. I was taken in by the play of words, and the very Punjabi getup of the entire song. My mammaji was thrilled, and was ready with comments like – “waah wah, kya cheez sunaai hai” , and “who says Rafi is done with”.

I had no inkling about the details of this song. I had no idea what category it was. Being a Punjabi sounding song, the first and the firm thought was, this is one of those Punjabi songs, either from a Punjabi film or simply a Punjabi non-film song. It never did occur to me otherwise. Later, when I had tried to sometimes look for this song, I was searching for it in the Punjabi genres, and so never did locate it. But the song stayed with me, committed into memory.

Then, as I started my selection of songs for this series – which is what, more than three decades since I heard this for the first time, I was scanning the Geet Kosh pages for year by year pick of the songs. Alphabetically, this film is close to the beginning of the list as given in Geet Kosh. I read the name of the film, and almost skipped it. My glance caught the word ‘रफी’ and I paused. As I read the title of the song, well I need not describe the thrill and expectation that arose within me. Goodness. . . after sooooo. . . many years. I could not believe that I was reading it right. Now, armed with more information I started searching for the song itself. And as luck would have it, it is available online.

And of course, just for this experience, this song becomes part of this series. But not only for that. It is a wonderful song in its own right. Music is by Hansraj Behl. One of his last films I would presume. He passed away in 1984.

The lyricist name is a new one – Munsif. I am not familiar with this name, and request other friends and readers to add more information about him. The star cast of the film includes Satish Kaul, Bhavna Bhatt, Madan Puri, Raza Murad, Rajendranath, Mehar Mittal, Gopal Sehgal, Ram Mohan, Mumtaz Begum, Tuntun, Bhag Singh, Yash Sharma, Mounto etc. With the presence of names like Mehar Mittal and Gopal Sehgal in the cast, it seems that the team behind this film has its base in Punjab. That is how Hansraj Behl also is associated.

A lively song by Rafi Sb, very much in the Punjabi folk milieu. Especially the pronunciation of ‘time’ as ‘tem’ – a very catchy accent of the language.

Listen and enjoy.

dhak kar rakhh tera roop hai kunwaara ji
aaj tak waadon hi se kiya hai guzaara ji

tujhse tem poochhenge ae ae
aree na baandho gori
baazu pe ghadi

tujhse tem poochhenge
ji raah chalte manchale
tujhse tem poochhenge
heeriye tem poochhenge
goriye tem poochhenge
soniye tem poochhenge

अरी ना बांधो गोरी॰॰ई॰॰ई
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
हो हो ओ ओss
हो ओ ओ
अरी न बांधो गोरी
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
अरी न बांधो गोरी
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे

मिलेंगे जवान तेरा राह रुक जाएगा
कह कह टेम तेरा मुंह थक जाएगा
मिलेंगे जवान तेरा राह रुक जाएगा
कह कह टेम तेरा मुंह थक जाएगा
दिल अपने वो तेरे
ओए तेरे तेरे तेरे
दिल अपने वो तेरे
पैरों पे रख देंगे
अरी न बांधो
अरी न बांधो गोरी
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे हे

घड़ी बंधी देख बड़ी पड़ेगी दुहाई रे
यूं आवाज़ें आएंगी वो घड़ी वाली आई रे
आ हाss
घड़ी बंधी देख बड़ी पड़ेगी दुहाई रे
यूं आवाज़ें आएंगी वो घड़ी वाली आई रे
फूल सी जवानी
जवानी जवानी जवानी
फूल सी जवानी की नज़ारा लूटेंगे
अरी न बांधो
अरी न बांधो गोरी
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे॰॰ए

ढक कर रख तेरा रूप है कुँवारा जी
आज तक वादों ही से किया है गुज़ारा जी
हाँ
ढक कर रख तेरा रूप है कुँवारा जी
आज तक वादों ही से किया है गुज़ारा जी
रखवाली करते मर गए
हम मर गए
मर गये
मर गए
रखवाली करते मर गए
मौजें और लूटेंगे
अरी न बांधो गोरी
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे॰॰ए

अरी न बांधो गोरी
बाज़ू पे घड़ी
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
जी राह चलते मनचले तुझसे टेम पूछेंगे
हीरिए टेम पूछेंगे
गोरिए टेम पूछेंगे
सोनिए टेम पूछेंगे

It was 1958. A singing contest was organized in Bombay, sponsored by Murphy radios. The judges of the contest were the ‘दिग्गज‘ music directors of that era – Naushad, Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Vasant Desai and Madan Mohan. With a battery of such illustrious composers sitting in the jury, just be able to participate and perform in their presence, would have been a privilege. And for sure, the best talented aspirants had applied to be part of this contest. The singer that this impressive selection panel honored to be the best singer was a young man, originally from Amritsar, but settled in Bombay since childhood. The interesting thing about this young man was that he had been earlier rejected in auditions by All India Radio and Young India Ltd. (the gramophone records company). Along with being honored as the winner the verdict of this panel, Mahendra Kapoor got an opportunity immediately to sing for some of the music directors on the judge’s panel.

A voice that is a signature of mysteries. The deep bass vibrations resound like the echoing sound waves passing through the gullies and valleys of the mountainside, covered with moist and heavy fog, adding to the bass heaviness. Reminds one of ‘sannaata’ and ‘kahmoshi’ and ‘kohraa’ of the lonely pathways, being tread by a ‘raahgir’ – the ‘banjaara’ traveler walking alone and humming ‘chal akela. . .’.

An icon that stands the tallest on the horizon of the Hindi film landscape. And a persona whose influence spans more than six decades of the history of this medium – a medium that itself is just over eight decades young now.

Dharam Devdutt Pishorimal Anand – born this day in Shakargarh, district Gurdaspur. The year – is irrelevant. With a persona like Dev Sb, the length of years behind was as meaningless as the number of years ahead of him were meaningful. The zest for life and the energy to be – the age and years did not matter. The only thing that mattered was the young-ness of the mind that simply refused to be afraid of the towering Time that overcomes all. Not that he professed any eternal life. And neither did he survive the scythe of reaper of time. But the time and the years that he lived and breathed, there was always another horizon to reach, always another mountain to scale. And the mantra for life simply was – young-ness of the mind.

I can imagine in my mind’s eye. Atul ji getting interviewed on some online forum. The interviewer asks about what he does. Atul ji tells him that he is managing this Atul Song A Day blog. The interviewer asks Atul ji to describe this blog, what prompted him to set this up and tell about its specialties. Atul ji starts telling about the blog, its origins and its features. Near the end of the interview, the interviewer asks so tell what is new on the blog today. Atul ji raises one hand to cover a yawn, then remarks – “nothing much, the usual stuff, we just clocked another 100 songs today.” :D :D

Prem naam hai mera. . .
Prem Chopra. . .

Thus happens the surprise introduction of this villain cum character artist, in the film ‘Bobby’ (1973). I call it a surprise because his name does not appear in the credits at the start of the film. ‘Bobby’ was one of the films that I got to see on the big screen, with family. Prem Chopra would be a familiar artist in the nascent mind of the school going ‘yours truly’, thanks to films like ‘Shaheed’ and ‘Upkar’. And so, when abruptly and unexpectedly on to the shining tinsel screen, appears this familiar face and the familiar voice, chewing on a blade of grass, and making his presence felt in a very lewd and unexpected manner, I remember I was aghast – “arre, is ka to naam bhi nahin hai, ye kaise aa gaya?”. For a split second, the thought did cross my mind – “cinema waalon ne koi galat reel laga di hai”. But immediately as the film continued, that thought would be discarded. “Achhaa, aisa bhi hota hai. B’gair naam ke bhi actor film mein aa jaate hain”.

(1978 – Duet)

And with this duet, another film from 1978 makes a debut on the blog. The film is ‘Damaad’ directed by Raja Rakshit. This song I would not categorize as obscure. It was heard relatively more often on the radio, and continues to be alive in memory. And what a gem of a song this one also is.
