Atul often says that inspite of the blog having already clocked five-digit number of songs, there are still plenty of very good songs out there that have still not found their way to the blog.

In my opinion, that is not a bad thing, because it keeps our journey of discovery interesting and exciting. Compiling songs on this blog is as much about the journey as about the destination – and we take as much pleasure in the journey as in getting closer to our destination. We have milestones, minor and major, that keep beckoning to us to approach them – and as we pass each milestone, we not only celebrate it but also set our sights on the next one.

In a sense, this is no different from a long train journey. Each kilometer has to be covered, there are no shortcuts – but each scheduled stop is a minor milestone, each major junction is a major milestone – and when we pass one, we look forward to the next. Atul, more than anybody else, would totally identify with this analogy, I am sure. :-)

Coming to myself, as somebody who thoroughly enjoys a journey of discovery, I spend a lot of my time on youtube, just clicking on links of songs that I feel I have never heard before. Admittedly, they are mostly songs that are at least 40 years old but it is always done with a hope that underlying the link is an undiscovered gem. In a sense, this is pearl-diving on youtube. :-)

I was on one such mission a couple of days ago when I came across a Kishore da song that I had never heard before. Now there are many of his songs that I have never heard before, but this one stunned me. Not only because it is from the early 70s (an era that I felt I knew fairly well) but it is such a fabulously rendered song that I am surprised it is not rated higher among his gems. That I had never heard it before was very humbling, to say the least.

It also further underlined to me the voice that was Kishore Kumar in that period. This was 1972 – I was a young boy then and Kishore absolutely ruled the airwaves in those days. In every radio programme, on songs played on streets, you would hear his voice. Maybe, in an era spoilt for Kishore Kumar riches, this song just didn’t get noticed enough.

Then, as I always do, I immediately checked the blog to see if this song was already posted. The song is from the film Tanhaai (1972) – and I found not a single song of this film has been posted yet. I then decided that this had to be corrected immediately. Bahut na-insaafi hai! :-)

In general, I prefer to have seen a film whose songs I am posting. It tends to give some context to the song and the post.

So I looked for the film on youtube, found it and watched it last night.

Tanhaai (1972) is directed by Jagdish Nirula and produced by S.I. Shivdasani. It stars Anil Dhawan, Rehana Sultan, Shatrughan Sinha, Laxmi Chhaya, Junior Mehmood, Jagdev, Iftikhar, Poornima, Lalita Kumari among others.

I must say I quite liked the film, especially considering I had zero expectations at the start. :-) It is a film, typical of that period – the floral prints of Anil Dhawan’s and Shatrughan Sinha’s shirts are evidence of this. :-) And while there is nothing spectacular about the story, what I really liked about it is that it is a pleasant film, and therefore watchable. I watched it all the way, without getting bored.

The film also made me wonder why Rehana Sultan didn’t do better in the industry – I have only seen a few movies of hers, and she has been impressive in them all.

Anil Dhawan of course had more success – he was part of the a whole bunch of turn-of-the-decade newcomers (late 60s/early 70s) like Navin Nischol, Ajay Sahni, Vijay Arora, Rakesh Roshan, Vinod Mehra, Amitabh Bachchan and many others. That was a period of Rajesh Khanna dominance but this bunch managed a few successes between themselves. One of them went on to somewhat greater heights. :-)

While watching the film, I noticed that the other songs are not too bad either. But this particular one by Kishore, this one which made me watch the film in the first place, is my favourite.

I will not narrate the whole story here – some of you might want to watch it. Also, a warning. I get a bit nostalgic when I see a film of my childhood era, especially when I see signs like a SELVEL board on the side of the road. :-) So if you watch the film and don’t like it, don’t blame your wasted time on me. :-)

In any case, whether you enjoy the film or not, I am fairly confident you will enjoy this song. It was “love at first hear” for me. The song and picturisation do seem to be influenced by the success of “roop tera mastana” of Aradhana but it is surprising that the song didn’t get known a fraction as well. Or maybe I just missed hearing it before. Glad I found it at least now.

Song-Saawan mein kahin aag na lag jaaye chaman ko (Tanhaai)(1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Amanullah Khan Aman, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

Bheege huye aanchal mein
sameto na badan ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko

Uljhi hui saansen hain
dhadakta hua seena
Hey
Uljhi hui saansen hain
dhadakta hua seena
Honthon pe dabee baat hai
maathe pe paseena
Hey hey
Khilti hai kali dekh ke
naazuk se behen(?) ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko

Ye madbhari tanhaai
ye tanhaai ka jaadoo
Hey
Ye madbhari tanhaai
ye tanhaai ka jaadoo
Aise mein bhala kaise ho
jazbaat pe kaaboo
Hey hey
Rangeen banaa lo
isi pal bhar ke milan ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 6

Aah, coming back to Bombay. :)

In the first five episodes of this series, I have covered the Bombay gangouts that took place in December last year.  However, my tales of Bombay are not yet done. Moving forward with this series, I am going to be writing about my personal experiences with this enigmatic city which is a confluence of contradictions.

” DIVE INTO A GOOD BOOK ”

The picture shows one of the scenes of my dream we all know that the weirdest things in this world are dreams. Before this dream I read a book – ‘The midnight theft’. The name sounds good but the contents was just horrible. Now the question comes that if I found the book was such, then why did I go on to read the whole book. Actually it is my habit or I do not know what but I have a tendency to complete things which I have started.

June 6th is Sunil Dutt’s birth anniversary. He was born in 1929, so we celebrate his 86th birthday. His debut film was Railway Platform (1955). The role of the idealist, who wants to change the society, would follow him for most part of the 50s. In 1963 he donned the role of a dacoit Thakur Jarnail Singh, which was quite unusual for the times. In fact, it was sort of an extension of his role in Mother India (1957). Dacoit roles would haunt him for the rest of his career. He did meaningful films, particularly with Chopra brothers in the 60s. His magnum opus Reshma aur Shera (1972) though left him in financial doldrums, which sent him on a film-signing spree throughout the 70s. At first it was to pay back his debts and later for the cancer treatment of his wife. He took leave of his career as a leading man after launching his son in Rocky (1981) with the film Dard Ka Rishta (1982).

With this song the film Dhongee (1976) makes its debut on this blog. I know only this song from this film and remember it from my childhood days, when it used to be played on the radio, on Vividh Bharati to be precise. The YT uploader has erroneously mentioned this movie as a release of 1979.

Troika of the Blog’s latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore Kumar : 3. Kishore Kumar
—————————————————————————————————

After reading a vast repository of information available on the internet as well as in the books, I am pretty certain about the personalities of Mukesh, Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle etc. But I am not so sure about what sort of person Kishore Kumar was. He was branded as eccentric, unpredictable, money minded, stingy etc etc. In a rare interview conducted by Lata Mangeshkar about a couple of years before his death in 1987, he had revealed that he donned the mask of eccentricity and unpredictable behaviour just for those persons whom he disliked and did not wish to be associated with. But how can one explain his eccentric behaviour even with his elder brother Ashok Kumar and his family members whom he respected a lot ? (In this context, there is a story narrated by Ashok Kumar’s daughter, Preeti Ganguly which I will skip here. (Those interested may read it here).

एक गाना सुना होगा – “बड़ा ही CID है वो नीली छतरी वाला, हर ताले की चाबी रखता हर चाबी का ताला”॰ अपने blog पर भी है॰ लगता है अब इस गाने को थोड़ा बदलना पड़ेगा, ऐसे – “बड़े ही CID हैं, ये अतुल गैंग के मेम्बर्स, गाना guess करने में हैं अव्वल नंबर”॰ काश, लेकिन नहीं, अभी ये गाना blog पर नहीं है॰  :)

(You must have heard the song – “Badaa Hi CID Hai Wo Neeli Chhatri Waala”.  It is on our blog.  Seems as if this song needs to be modified.  Like This – “Bade Hi CID Hain, Ye Atul Gang Ke Members, Gaana Guess Karne Mein Hain Awwal Number”.  Sorry, this one is not yet on the blog).

As we all know, there are thousands of songs out there and they can all be classified in many different ways. Here on the blog, Atul himself has categorized songs into several categories, depending on mood (sad/happy), or content (birthday/Diwali), or style (qawwali/disco) or even musical instrument (guitar/harmonium). And many other ways.

Apart from all these, there is one category that we don’t have but I think all of us will agree could be a fun category. That is “songs that if I hadn’t heard in my childhood or seen the movie, I don’t think I would ever have heard in my life”. :-)
