The Unforgettable was the first album of ghazals and nazms launched by Jagjit-Chitra. It was released in 1977.

These days television and FM radio stations bombard the viewers/listeners with new film songs. A song becomes popular at once, or not at all. In a month or two, another song takes its place at the top of the Pop charts and it’s gone forever.

But those were slower times. When I turned up in Delhi in 1979, The Unforgettable was still gathering steam. My cousins had a turntable, and I listened to this album in the good old way, placing the needle on the record. The sounds were amazing. The music was soothing and seductive. Jagjit’s voice, heavy but low, crooned out the ghazals. Chitra’s fluty voice was melodious. Together they seduced my senses with the breathtaking shairi and a melody that gave me an out of body experience.

I listened to the album over and over again. I bought a copy of its cassette as well and listened to it all the time. It never lost its magic for me. At each listening, I would fall under its spell anew.

I know there are many other ghazal singers who are far superior. But that was the time of Jagjit and Chitra and they ruled the roost.

I was just at the end of my teens then. I was full of hopes and aspirations. The world was out there and full of possibilities. In such a rosy scenario, such songs sounded even sweeter, such songs that spoke of love and longing.

For this post I have chosen the first song in the album, “Baat niklegi to phir door talak jayegi”. The song is a recitation of the shairi, it is not ‘sung’. Yet Jagjit Singh’s mellifluous voice makes it sound like a soulful nazm. It speaks of a lover asking a young girl to hide her passions lest she is censured for it. It is loaded with sensuality and sweetness of love.


Song-Baat niklegi to phir door talak jaayegi (Jagjit Singh NFS)(1977) Singer-Jagjit Singh, Lyrics-Kafeel Azar, MD-Jagjit Singh

Lyrics

Baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi
Log bewajha
Udaasi ka sabab poochenge
Yeh bhi poochenge
ki tum itni pareshaan kyun ho

Ungliyaan uthengi
sookhe huye baalon ki taraf
ik nazar dekhenge
guzre huye saalon ki taraf
Choodiyon par bhi kayi tanz kiye jaayenge
Kaanpte haathon pe bhi, fikre kase jaayenge

Log zaalim hain
har ik baat ka taana denge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
unki baaton ka zara sa bhi asar mat lena
Warna chehre ke ta’asur se samajh jaayenge

Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae
Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae ae
Mere baare mein koi baat na karna unse

baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi

Come 1977 and Shatrughan Sinha had been around in films for about 8 years now. He already had two Filmfare awards for best supporting actor under his belt – in 1971 for ‘Paaras’ and 1975 for ‘Dost’. On screen, majority of his roles have a style – freewheeling, assertive and emphatic, whether being the smug good guy or the abrasive bad guy. In the seventies, Shatrughan Sinha was one of the busier actors in the industry, averaging 8 to 9 films a year.

(1977 – Solo)

When I picked this song for this series, my first reaction was – wow, not yet posted on the blog? I remember from the radio listening days, that this song was very popular in its time. And it still carries a very vibrant appeal that will take the listener to a high. Rafi Sb has sung this song with such zest and abandon, his voice sounding so bright and breezy. Without the visual, the song conjures up images of a playful teasing situation, as the lady seems to be upset and is walking off, being pursued by a persistent lover, who expresses casual disregard for her but also promises that she will be turning back in no time. A promise that is fulfilled, not later than the end of the song.

SHATRANJ KE KHILAADI(1977) was Satyajit Ray’s first Hindi feature film which he directed with multi star cast from India and abroad. The film was based on a short story by the same name written by Munshi Premchand which I had read during my school days. I watched this film once again and I must say that I enjoyed the movie much more than I had seen it about 3 decades back. The film was produced by Suresh Jindal under the banner of Devki Chitra. The main actors in the film were Amjad Khan, Sanjeev Kumar, Saeed Jaffrey, Shabana Azmi, Farida Jalal, Victor Bannerji, Richard Attenborough, Tom Alter, Barry John, Farooque Shaikh, David Abraham, Veena etc. Amitaab Bachchan was the narrator of the film.

Actually when we were racing towards 10000 I had thought that we will be reaching 10000 on June 27th and it will coincide with RD Burman’s birthday. But that was not to be as after all Atul has his responsibilities towards work and family which are a natural first in any one’s life. So we have reached Gaana number 9931. Chalo lets March Onto 10000.

1977 ‘Alaap’, a classic film, produced and directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee with star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Chhaaya Devi, Asrani, Om Parkesh, Farida Jalal etc had superb music by Jaidev and beautiful lyrics of Dr. Harivanshrai Bachchan and Dr. Rahi Masum Raza. There were eleven songs, and two out of them were in two parts. Since those two songs, viz ‘Mata Saraswati’ and ‘Aayee ritu saawan ki’ were combined and presented for the Blog, all, except the present song, are already covered. I may get first time credit to put ‘Alaap’ in the list of ‘Movies-All songs covered’.

My timing is somewhat off-key these days. So much else is dragging my attention that I am missing to hit the dates, even though I have planned it in advance. With due apologies to Atul ji. :) He is aware of at least two missed dates in this year, where the write ups are almost done, but could not be completed in time. Some of these dates are overdue so much that it does not make good sense to post them, rather better to wait for the next opportune moment.
