When Khyati Behn sent in the lyrics of this song, she said, and I quote , that she “. . . was KB Exp to see that this film hasn’t yet found its place on the blog. Koi baat nahi, ab kar dete hai. :) “.  Well we all know, with Khyati Behn, the messaging has to be something out of the ordinary.

So two things prompted her to send in this song.  One, that after the stupendous success of ‘Sholay’ in 1975, this was the next occasion, after 5 years, that Dharmendra and Amitabh together appeared in a film, in which they sang a friendship duet.  And the second of course is the mystery trail of Amitabh songs that Atul ji seems to be going after with a great passion, and so she thought she will also pitch in.  Well, more the merrier, and it really applies to music, especially Hindi film music, and especially for the group of friends and readers of this blog, all passionate about Hindi film music.

So here we are, maybe not any closer to getting a preview of the mystery targets towards which the posts of the past couple of weeks seems to be heading.  But we do have one more wonderful song of these two stalwarts together, from thirty five years ago.

The film is ‘Ram Balram’ fron 1980.  It has to be special, since it is directed by the redoubtable Vijay Anand for Navjeevan Films, Bombay.  However, that could not still change or better the history, and this film was no patch on ‘Sholay’ from five years earlier.  For comparison sake, lets see what changed and what didn’t.  Kishore Kumar still was the voice behind Amitabh.  The lyrics still come from the pen of Anand Bakshi.  However, much else changed.  In ‘Sholay’, Kishore Kumar was the voice of Dharmendra, whereas five years later, it is now Amitabh that Kishore sang for.  In the previous instance, Manna Dey had sung playback for Amitabh, and in this song, Mohammed Rafi sings for Dharmendra.  And yes, the important change – the music director changed from RD Burman to Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The motor bike with the companion carrier changed into a three wheeled car. Interesting choice this one, because this car came into the market, appeared in some show rooms, kept away from the roads and then quietly disappeared. The singing voice for Dharmendra changed from Manna Dey to Mohammed Rafi.  The only other repeats in the star cast were Amjad Khan and Helen.  The rest of the start cast consists of Zeenat Aman, Rekha, Ajit, Sujeet Kumar, Prem Chopra, Nazneen, Urmila Bhatt, Ranjan, Utpal Dutt, Subrato Mahapatra, Master Lucky, Sandeep, Lalita Kumari, Asit Sen, Mohan Sherry, Kirti, Bharat Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Meghdoot, Moolchand, Ram Avtar, Mamaji, and Gautam Sarin.

Ah yes, one more significant difference is that both the leading men are not on the same side of the law.  Plus that they have links going back into their childhood, whereby it gets explained as to why these two, apparently on the opposite sides of the law, are great friends.  The magic of “Ye Dosti. . .” could not be recreated.  Although the tune created by LP is pleasing and different, but the zing that was present in the earlier song, is absent.

As Khyati Behn points out, this film opens its account on the blog today.  More to come as we move forward.  Till then, view, listen and enjoy this one.

PS: The above corrections to the text of this article are based on the correction point out by Sam ji, in the comments.

From the email that Khyati Behn sent me with the lyrics of this song, I reproduce the epithet she has used – “One more song to add to Lataji’s THE BEST MELODIES EVER COLLECTION.”  I heard this song, and I do agree with her.  A song par excellence, that has long been relegated to anonymity for various reasons and circumstances.

Hello everybody!

It’s been a while since I last wrote a post for this blog – the last one was on Rafisaab’s birth anniversary last year (December 24th). So it’s been more than 3 months!

The vast ocean of the Hindi film songs contains innumerable gems that lie hidden from the eyes, in the depths.  These gems, overshadowed by the waves of the popular melodies, more often than not, are even more endearing and more heartwarming than the popular tunes that capture the attention of the listening public.  And it is the true connoisseurs of this art that will delve into the deep to search out such gems.  It is these connoisseurs that value the sounds of the voices such as Suman Kalyanpur.

Greetings and best wishes to Suman Kalyanpur ji, on her birth anniversary (28th January).

One of the key threads of genres that runs through the films of 1960s is an array of action films that were centered around the he-man actor Dara Singh.  This was the period when Dara Singh constituted an entire segment of the film industry all by himself.  Stories and screenplays were written keeping him as the center of the universe.  His larger than life physical presence, his standing as a real life body builder and wrestler of international repute, and his reputation as an upright person with very clean habits and a very honest, very humane person – all these characteristics made him a very popular figure with the masses.  Here was a screen hero who would be easily idolized by the common man, for the simple reason that his screen roles were a very close reflection of his real life persona.

Only if religion had not fallen out of favor with the film industry. Kya kahen, sab paise ki maya hai (what to say, it is all a money game). The producers say that the public is not interested. And so they will lose money if they make religious films. And so we have been seeing less and less of religious and spiritual themes on screen. Rather, I do not recall seeing any title that indicates a religious film, in the past decade or so.

Readers may have noticed that very few posts were appearing in the blog for the last several days. That tends to happen during festival seasons/ holidays when I am unable to find much time to devote to blogging. As a result, backlog of blogging work piles up. In addition, I have been unable to discuss several topics that I have been wanting to discuss for quite some time.

Today (2 october 2014) is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shashtri. And this time it is a day when this day is being celebrated differently. A massive nationwise cleanliness campaign is being launched this day and it is expected to create awareness among masses to keep their premises clean. “swaachh Bharat Swasth Bharat” is the slogan. This is a movement that is launched with the expectation and people will slowly and steadily open their eyes to cleanliness so that in five years time, when we celebrate Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, India is a clean nation. Amen to that !

It was a message earlier in the morning yesterday. It was a reminder email from Khyati Ben, that 25th July 2014 is the 95th birth anniversary of the renowned music director, Sudhir Phadke. This post is on her request. The wonderful and unique song is also her suggestion, and the lyrics are provided by her.
