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

The last time I discussed my dogs was in february 2013, which was more than two years ago. My dogs were two years old at that time. Now they are four years old. So they have become twice as old as they were at that time.

Amitabh – The Later Decades – 5
—————————————————–

The carrying capacity of this man is amazing. There is an aura about him that continues to draw the audiences. The measure of his success and popularity is pretty much sustained, as his fans continue to return to the cinema/video time after time after time. I believe that the secret behind this sustenance has been his capacity to re-invent himself, and his portrayals.

I must frankly admit that I have kept away from the mainstream cinema, mostly after the seventies faded away, and a new order both in terms of performers, as well as music, came on to the scene.  The time also coincided with the years amounting to almost two and a half decades that I was traveling, and away from India most of the time.  The viewing of current films was random and patchy at the best, and that I never went out of my way to acquire and watch a current film.  Unless it was recommended to me, and that too, by someone whose judgement I would trust.
