Amongst various phases that we go through in life, childhood, though the earliest of our conscious phases, usually manages to imprint some memories in our brain that seem to be indelible right through our life. We might forget what we had for lunch earlier today but we remember a seemingly inconsequential event that occurred when we were ten!

For many people, these childhood memories include films and music that they were exposed to at that time. Years later, they recall (usually) fondly these films and this music – often associating them with childhood events. Success or otherwise of these films or music is immaterial – what matters is that they were part of the person’s growing up years.

For me, those years would be, say, from 1969 – 1981.

In 1981, things changed in my life – and probably changed me too a bit. I remember Love Story, Rocky and Ek Duuje Ke Liye being released in 1981. All of these films turned out to be huge hits – and their songs were a rage on radio every day. I listened to them – but could not muster any interest in the films themselves. A bunch of new actors for the Hindi film industry – all heavily promoted – and here I was, totally indifferent. Yes, for me, personally, 1981 marked the end of an era.

The start of the era was probably 1969. I have a few memories of pre-1969 but they are rather hazy , so I will not set the marker for before this year. I do remember 1969 though – Aradhana’s popularity is a clear memory though at that time I did not know it was 1969. Another clear memory is the death of President Zakir Hussain and it being declared a school holiday. Later I realized it was 1969.

I remember seeing an issue of Madhuri magazine in 1970. In our family we did not subscribe to film magazines but our neighbour did. I happened to be at their place and chanced on the magazine. The main story was about the top three heroines of the time, with their pictures.

They were Sharmila Tagore, Asha Parekh and Waheeda Rehman.

I remember this as if it were yesterday.

Of course these were the big names at that particular moment, especially after Aradhana and Kati Patang for Sharmila and Asha respectively. I’d guess Waheeda would have in the top 3 for much of the 60s, and even in 1970, she produced an outstanding performance in Khamoshi.

But I reckon, if a similar top-3 had been produced 2-3 years later, a different name might have made it to the list.

Mumtaz.

Today is Mumtaz’s birthday (or birth anniversary as some prefer to refer to the day).

So this post is dedicated to her, as we, in this blog, wish her a very happy birthday.

Personally, I’d like to thank Mumtaz (or Mumu as she is fondly called by her fans) for many of my fond childhood film memories.

“Dekho dekho dekho, bioscope dekho…Dilli ka Qutub Minar dekho, Bambai sheher ki bahaar dekho, ye Agre ka hai Taj Mahal, ghar baithe saara sansaar dekho”.

This was Mumu in Dushman (1971). Even as she was singing this song on screen (Lata’s playback), a little boy was enthralled. That was me. ? This song got stuck in my head.

“Sun champa sun taara, koi jeeta koi haara”.

Mumu in Apna Desh (1972). Another song that enthralled me at the time and got stuck in my head.

During that period (1970-1975), I saw a number of Mumtaz movies. She was at the top of her career at the time and was extremely popular amongst the masses.
It is well-known that she and Rajesh Khanna enjoyed a terrific chemistry on screen. Many of their films became hits, many of them had songs featuring both of them, which are popular to this day. Songs like “chhup gaye saare nazaare” and “ye reshmi zulfein” (Do Raaste), “yunh hi tum mujh se baat karti ho” (Sacha Jhootha), “maine dekha tune dekha…dushman dushman jo doston se pyara hai” (Dushman), “kajra lagaa ke” and “duniya mein logon ko” (Apna Desh), “gore rang pe na itna gumaan kar” (Roti), “karvatein badalte rahen” and “jai jai Shiv Shankar” (Aap Ki Kasam) and “prem kahani mein” (Prem Kahani).

I saw all these movies during that 1970-75 period. And loved the Rajesh-Mumu pairing. But apart from these films, I also saw other Mumu films like Pardesi, Ek Nari Ek Brahmachari, Apradh, Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Tere Mere Sapne, Tangewala, Mela, Loafer and many more.

Yes, during that period, with the possible exception of Hema Malini, I don’t think I saw as many movies of any heroine as I saw of Mumtaz.

So to me, just like Rajesh Khanna was very much part of my early growing up years, so was Mumtaz.

Only later I got to know that it had not always been like this for Mumtaz.

I’d first known her when she’d already stepped into the big league. But well before that, she’d had many years of working her way up the ladder. She started when very young – for example, she can be seen in the famous “pankh hoti to ud aati re” sequence (Sehra-1963). Already by this time, she’d been acting for a few years. And this, for somebody, born in 1947.

Through the 1960s, Mumtaz worked as a heroine in B-movies (notably with Dara Singh, who was one of her favourite co-stars at the time and encouraged her a lot during that period).

When she wasn’t playing B-movie heroine, she was playing the secondary actress role in A movies – often wanting the hero, but not getting him, as in Aadmi Aur Insaan and Patthar Ke Sanam. Through the sixties, she could be seen in well-known films but not as the main heroine – films like Khandan, Sawan Ki Ghata, Humraaz, Brahmachari and Mere Sanam come to mind.

With V. Shantaram’s Boond Jo Ban Gaye Moti (1967) opposite Jeetendra and Ram Aur Shyam (1967) opposite Dilip Kumar, she made the transition to a different league – that of a lead actress in a non-B film.

Ram Aur Shyam (1967) became a huge hit. It had Dilip Kumar in a double role – one was paired opposite Waheeda Rehman, the other opposite Mumtaz. And though Waheeda Rehman had more screen time, Mumtaz had her moments too, with the popular “o baalam tere pyar ki thandi aag mein jalte jalte” picturised on her and Dilip Kumar.

From then on, things began looking up for her. Do Raaste (1969) was again a big hit. And for Khilona (1970) she even won a Filmfare award. After that, the lead roles began coming her way fairly comfortably. Once you are seen as a saleable star, producers line up at your doorstep.

So it was indeed quite a journey for Mumtaz. From being a starlet to becoming a star. It is to her credit that she persevered all the way. Some people (like Rajesh Khanna) achieve stardom very early in their careers – others have to work for years for it.

Mumtaz enjoyed her stardom years in the early 70s. But then, just when she was still very much on top, she got married and left the film industry in the mid-70s. She wrapped up her remaining assignments and settled abroad with her businessman husband. It was a Hindi film industry version of a Bjorn Borg retirement. ?

Anyway, now onto today’s song.

The song for today is from Khandan (1965).

The film was one of the biggest grossers of the year and its music became very popular. Ravi won a Filmfare Award for it, as did Sunil Dutt for his acting. While the heroine is Nutan, Mumtaz stars in the film as second lead opposite Sudesh Kumar, who plays Sunil Dutt’s brother.

The role Mumtaz plays is actually a negative one, where she and her brother, Pran, try to win over Sudesh Kumar and break his family, with the help of Lalita Pawar, who is the matriarch of the family.

It is a fun song that allows us to see Mumtaz dancing in her typical 1960s “western” style, reminiscent of her in “O meri maina” from Pyar Kiye Jaa. That Sudesh Kumar doesn’t seem to quite match up to Mumtaz in the dance, doesn’t detract from the fun of the song.

I hope you enjoy this song too – ao dance karein.
And once again, we wish Mumtaz a very happy birthday.

Two songs from this movie “Tu Hi Meri Zindagi” (1965) have already been discussed in this blog. I would like to present two of my most favourite songs of this movie. The first one is presented here, and am sure the other one (Maayus Na Ho Aye Mere Watan) will be posted in the near future.

“Tu Hi Meri Zindagi” (1965) was produced under the Filmalaya banner by Sashdhar Mukharjee, and directed by his eldest son Rono Mukherjee, who also composed music for this movie.

The movie starred Deb Mukherjee (Rocky), Nivedita (Maria), Salome, Darshan, Lata Sinha, Chhaya Devi, Amar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Paul Sharma, Shetty, Heera Sawant, Uma Khosla, Pradeep Gupta, Sudarshan, Devraj, Jaffar, Raj Bakshi, Mohan Sharma, Master Akhtar, Rummy, Tingo, Shyam Chatterji, etc.,

I have checked the first two posts and it does not provide any story info. So here goes (as per IMDB).

FREEDOM IS MY BIRTH RIGHT shouted one of the glorious sons of the motherland and he would not rest until he cut all the shackles of bondage.
This was the spirit which inspired our hero who belonged to the masses. Rocky, the last unsung patriot in the Gomes family which was well known for its tradition of having sacrificed everything for the cause of liberation of Goa, was unlike his ancestors because his grandmother, the only survivor of the family had very cautiously kept away Rocky from the influence of politics and revolutionary movement. But he was born to be the liberator of Goa and all circumstances worked up to provide him a field so that he could become immortal.
The happy go lucky Rocky turned into a maniac when his love was frustrated with the death of his beloved Maria who fell a victim to Portuguese atrocities. Rocky avenged her death by killing Portuguese tyrants. Then by force of circumstances, Rocky was dragged into the revolutionary movement and he identified himself with the ideal of his country’s freedom. Thus he found an opportunity and an altar to pour out all his suppressed attachment and love for his country providing his people a life of honour and grace.
His sacrifices kindled a fire of freedom in each hear which was enough to burn down the malicious designs of those who do not honour the people right to be free to govern themselves.

This is a bar song and Asha Bhosle’s voice is lip synced by Salome, AKA Salome Roy Kapur nee Aaron, Miss India 1972 (Eve’s Weekly) who did modelling, acted in this film, before becoming a film choreographer, known for choreographing the song, “Main Shaayar Toh Nahin” in Bobby (1973). She married a Punjabi businessman and bore him three sons – Siddharth Roy Kapur (who recently married noted Bollywood actress Vidya Balan), Kunaal Roy Kapur and Aditya Roy Kapur.

Her father-in-law was Raghupat Roy Kapur, who acquired the pseudonym G Rakesh and produced by his first film, Shahenshah Akbar (1943), with K.N. Singh as the lead. Soon his wife and children joined him and he went on to produce films like Zanjeer (1947), and even directed films like Lekh (1949), with Motilal and Suraiya and Banwra (1950) with Raj Kapoor and Nimmi. Salome’s parents, Sam and Ruby Aaron were qualified dance teachers, who introduced the Sama dance form to India, and also taught actor Bhagwan for film Albela (1951).

This song, a duet by Asha Bhosle and Mohd. Rafi is penned by Raja Mehndi Ali Khan and as mentioned above, composed by Ronodeb Mukherjee.

Since even before the films started to talk and sing, music has been an important part of the cinematic experience. Even in the days of silent films, there used to be a live orchestra sitting close to the screen, who would provide music accompaniment and some sound effects to make the proceedings more interesting and to keep engaged the attention of the viewers. Of course, when the sound came, and the music and song became such an inseparable part of the theme, the presentation and the making of the films that with it came a new distinction and a new significance that got attached to the role and position of a music director. But the story of the music and song in the films does not end there.

kuchh jodiyaan duniya mein bahut kam milti hain
magar jab milti hain to ghazab ka aalam hota hai

There are combinations of artists that have created some wondrous songs and music. But the disappointment at times is that these artist may have had really very few opportunities to work with each other. Yesterday, as I started to select some songs to post for today to celebrate Mukesh’s anniversary, this thought came to my mind. And I started to look for some songs that Mukesh has sung under the music direction of Jaidev. Just putting together these two names, sounds like a great combination that expected would be creating some wonderful gems together.

The blog completed six years yesterday (19 july 2014). It was planned to touch the much anticipated 10,000th song mark on that day, but that could not be achieved due to unavoidable circumstances. Today the circumstances are favourable. And fortunately it happens to be a sunday as well. Today we are definitely going to touch the 10,000th song mark. What is more, this will be achieved when it is still 19 july 2004 in some parts of the world ! So the roundness of the world, which dictates that different nations have their own times comes to our rescue. :)

Fortunately or unfortunately (for my friends, readers and followers) I belong to the variety of people who take pleasure in bringing out the hidden rare gems from HFM, usually from the 60s and the 70s. In keeping with my passion for “Rare Hindi Film Songs” (RHFS is my group on FB), today, I present two forgotten gems from one single movie – “Raftaar” released in 1975.

One can say, in some ways, it was a letdown. I mean my first meeting in person with Khyati Ben. We had been in email touch prior to that. I was in US, and had made plans to go down to Los Angeles and meet her. For identification purposes, she had sent me her photograph – a most dazzling blonde, with sharp features and attractive eyes, carrying a red rose. As per suggestions from Raja ji (who was also party to the email thread), I had been instructed to wear a trench coat, a felt hat, dark glasses and sporting a fake beard. And yes, also to carry a red rose. That would have been the identification to each other. Then, we had code words also defined for a more certain identification. On seeing the red rose in her hands, I was supposed to approach her and ask the question –“Aasmaan mein kitne sitaare hain?”. And she was supposed to reply with “hoshiyaar, khatre ke har taraf se ishaare hain”. That was how the introduction was planned.

I fondly remember my radio playing this song during the afternoons of my summer vacations (in our old rented house, and in the morning Radio farmaish programmes and during the late night, 11`clock Mumbai Vividh bharati programme “Bela ke phool”. This song belongs to my growing years; therefore I do have many fond memories of this song . Though it was not that badly picturised, the listening pleasure is more than that of watching it. If one hears this duet, in my personal opinion, it does have soothing effect on listeners.
