Today (5 July 2022) is the 5100th day for the blog.

Blog Day :

5100 Post No. : 17034

Regulars may have noticed lack of activity in the blog on my part for the last ten odd days. From June 25 till June 28, 7 posts were published and all these articles were posted by Sudhir jee. I had specifically requested him on 24 June 2022 that “it will be difficult for me to find time for publishing new posts til 24 June. So I request you to uphold the blog flag for these four days.”

Sudhir jee had promised to do the needful, viz ensuring that we had at least one post on each of these days. He ended up publishing four posts on 27 June 2022, prompted by an over-enthusiastic Avinash Scrapwala, who sent many RD Burman write ups on that day for publication. 🙂

I was extremely busy from the evening of 23 June till noon of 28 June. I was journeying throughout these days, crisscrossing various places, never staying in one place for more than one day. I was in mission mode to achieve mission critical tasks that could not be allowed to fail.

What exactly were there mission critical tasks ?

Convocation ceremony of 2016 batch of MBBS students of LTMMC was to take place on 24 June. As proud parents of our daughter who was among the one hundred plus MBBS students successfully completing their course and internship from LTMMC (Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical college), I and my wife obviously had to be present in Mumbai on this occasion. I took an evening flight from Gorakhpur to Mumbai on 23 june and arrived Mumbai at around 9 PM. My wife, who was at Bhopal, took an evening train (Punjab Mail) at Rani Kamlapati and arrived Mumbai on the morning of 24 June.

The convocation ceremony took place at the iconic Shanmukhananda auditorium of Mumbai, which is located close to LTMMC in Sion, Mumbai. I had read about this famous auditorium many times. Many well known cultural programs have taken place in this auditorium. Portraits of some legendary artists hang on the walls of the auditorium.

The convocation ceremony, which was supposed to start at 10 AM, started late, after 12 noon. The 2700 plus seat capacity auditorium was full of relatives of the students. While there were many from Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, several sets of parents and relatives had come from all over India, and some from abroad as well.

The 14 dignitaries (including six ladies) who were welcomed and seated on the dais were the “who is who” of medical fraternity in Mumbai.

The function was not a boring affair. These convocations held at Mumbai are very much like the film city functions, full of songs and dances. The students entered the hall dancing to some new popular Hindi movie songs, which I was obviously oblivious of. 🙂 They then took their seats in the front rows of the auditorium.

All the 14 dignitaries gave their speeches. That was followed by the function where individual students were called by name and handed over their certificates, medals etc. It was quite filmy ishtyle program. The name of the student and his/her details would be announced. Then a filmy song would play and the student would make a grand entry on the stage, dancing to that tune. Most of these tunes were new (unfamiliar to me), but I was happy to note that some of the students danced to the tunes of 1970s and 1980s Hindi movie songs as well. 🙂

The medals and certificate distribution went on till after 2 PM. then it was lunch break. After lunch break, four videos, prepared and shot by the students themselves, that showed their stay during these years in the college, were played. My daughter was co producer, director, (and actor too) in one of these videos. 🙂

It was evening when the gala function finally came to a close. The hectic and satisfying day had passed, but another hectic day awaited the two of us the next day. I and my wife had to catch an early morning flight to Gorakhpur the next day (25 June 2022).

We checked in to a hotel near the airport on the night of 24 June. We woke up at 4 AM in the morning and left for the airport. The flight was at 6 AM. We arrived Gorkhpur before time at 8 AM on 25 June which was a Saturday. After arriving at home, I (rather my wife), got busy in the task that was upon us. 90 % of the household items, including the car had already been sent to Bhopal in February 2022. The remaining items were now required to be packed and loaded on a truck to be dispatched to Bhopal. This work is normally done by professional packers, but my wife does it herself.

The truck was dispatched in the afternoon. Then we went to the gas agency and surrendered the gas connection.

The most important ‘item’ that we needed to shift was not luggage, but the two pets, namely Bhole and Izza. The cat had been shifted to Bhopal in February and that was less challenging because the cat went in our car along with wife and daughter. Taking the dogs by car for 1000 km was out of question because the car was no longer there in Gorakhpur. Moreover, the junior dog, Izza, is a very poor road traveller and she gets sick at the prospect of a road travel.

Fortuitously, there was one direct train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal the very next morning (26 June 2022). It is the only train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal that has an AC first coach in it. According to Railway rules, dogs can be taken either in dog box kept in Guard van (an unrealistic rule) or in AC first coach, if fellow passengers do not object. The best way to eliminate fellow passengers’ objection is to ensure that we book a two berth coupe (there are two such coupes in AC first coach). I had asked my staff to sound out the person who allots berths in the train including AC first that we should be allotted a two berth coupe.

But that is not all. Dogs are needed to be booked on the train. You need to have health certificate for them issued by a vet who certifies that they are fit to travel by train. That certificate is produced at the parcel office along with owners’ ticket and ID proof. Then a ticket is issued for the dogs allowing then to travel by train. Mostly, this booking of pets takes place one hour before the train has to start and the pets must be presented at the booking office. But that was a very challenging scenario. Gorakhpur Railway station is a very vast Railway station. The parcel booking office is in platform number one, whereas the train leaves from platform number nine. The two platforms are like two terminals of Mumbai Airport. So I sent my staff to convince the parcel officials to issue the pets documents earlier, if possible.

Next morning, my staff, who had reached the station at 5 AM, phoned me informing me that the tickets for the pets had been booked. Booked without taking the pets to the parcel office ! That was a big relief. So we directly reached at platform nine. There is a road running parallel to the platform. So we reached close to our coach and boarded the train along with the pets and luggage.The staff who had got the pets ticket booked handed me the document. I profusely thanked the staff, but failed to notice that the ticket price was Rs 400/-. However, I paid the money to the staff later.

After some initial discomfiture, both dogs, including Izza made themselves comfortable. Bhole, as is his wont being a down to earth dog, preferred to sit down on the floor. I made Izza sit on the lower berth and she soon made herself comfortable there, much to our relief.

Though we had sent most of our luggage earlier, but subsequently my wife discovered some more items that needed to be carried with us. So our luggage had become considerable. In Gorakhpur, the staff took care of carrying the luggage. I needed similar help at Bhopal. So I phoned the mechanical officer at Bhopal and requested for the help of his staff in carrying my luggage. The train arrived Bhopal before time at 8:40 PM (scheduled arrival time was 8:55 PM). The luggage and pets were deboarded.

Our daughter, after her convocation on 24 June had taken a morning flight to Bhopal on 25 June. She was to receive us at Bhopal. All the luggage and the two pets were somehow accommodated in the car. Izza, whom I was holding in the front passenger seat was putting up a stiff fight. Somehow I managed to restrain her while we arrived at the home. So our pets were successfully transported from Gorakhpur to Bhopal.

Next morning (27 June), the daughter had to go back to Mumbai. She drove the car herself to the airport. In the return direction, I drove the car back to the home. By the time we arrived home and had our breakfast etc, the daughter had already reached Mumbai. 🙂

I had my train back towards Gorakhpur in the afternoon. The train got delayed by about three hours. I boarded the train in the evening instead of afternoon, and arrived Gorakhpur at noon of 28 June, instead of morning.

If I was busy till morning on 28 June, the other engagements for the next three days were even more important. It is just that I did not have to travel on these days.

The residence items had all been sent. So I needed some other accommodation at Gorakhpur. I had already booked a transit accommodation room in a Railway Officers rest house. I went there. After getting ready, I went to office and sent the quarter vacation memo to the concerned officials. I asked my staff to find out all the clearances that are required to be taken and to take them promptly. It turned out that clearances from five different departments (electricity, telephone etc.) is needed. My staff got busy arranging for these clearances, while I got busy doing things that needed my presence.

Though we had submitted the gas cylinders and regulator two days earlier, but papers were not given on that day because the dealer was unavailable. I went to the gas agency and waited for an hour before the concerned person arrived and I could take the relevant document with me.

In the evening, there was one get together in the Railway Museum in my honor. Looking at my hectic schedule, the organizers of the function were wondering whether I would be able to attend this function. I managed to attend it. When I was asked to give a speech on the occasion, I gave a long speech, all extempore of course.

The next day, viz 29 June 2022 was rather sedate by comparison as there were no pressing engagements on that day. There was one function in the evening where my staff working directly under me honored me. There too I gave one extempore speech. My contents in this speech were different from my speech of 28 June 2022. 🙂

The next date, viz 30 June 2022 was the all important day. More than the day, I was interested in the next day, the pehli taareekh,viz 1 July 2022, when I had an early morning train to Bhopal. It was the same train in which we had transported our pets from Gorakhpur to Bhopal on 26 June 2022.

I spent the morning of 30 June 2022 packing my stuff. I was under strict instructions from my wife not to leave anything behind, not to misplace anything, and complete my packing well in advance etc. I was trying to do all that but as always, I had to leave my packing till last moment, even though my train was early morning on 1 July 2022.

In the office, I tried to clean up my stuff from almirahs, computers etc. In the computer I had logged in to my accounts of WordPress, Gmail, Office365 etc. I tried to log off from most of them but I ran out of time.

There was a function in the afternoon in HQ meeting hall headed by AGM (Additional General Manager). It was followed by a function in our own mechanical department.

Final program of the day was organised in Railway Officers club at night. Officers and their spouses were present in good number on the occasion. It was organised to honor four people including me. After cultural programs, it was time for speeches. When it was time for my speech, I gave another extempore speech. It was a lighthearted speech containing fun facts that was well received by the audience. I also mentioned the song blog towards the end of my speech. I mentioned that I had a Hindi movie songs related site called Atul Song A Day, ASAD in short. Till today, it was ASAD Gorakhpuri, from tomorrow it will be ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

The speeches were followed by dinner. Some of the guests complimented me for my witty speech, which I had thought up at the spur of the moment.

The club day was over at 10:30 PM. I went back to rest house, tried to complete the packing, but I could see that some packing could only be done at the last moment. I set alarm for 4 AM in my mobile and tried to go to sleep.

It was the alarm that woke me up. Then I realized that I had to get ready for the early morning train. I took bath, packed the remaining stuff, and checked to see that nothing was left behind. The car driver was supposed to arrive at 5 :30 AM. My luggage was all packed. All dues of all people (milkman, newsman, the person who booked my pets) were paid. My mobile which gets discharge very fast was plugged in for charging.

The car arrived. I got the stuff loaded in the car, handed over the key to the reception, and left for the station. Halfway towards the station, I pressed my left pant pocket and realized that my mobile was not there. I had forgotten the mobile back in the room. I asked the driver to turn back, the key was again taken from reception. The mobile, plugged in the power socket, was taken along with the charger. Heaving a big sigh of relief, I restarted for the station.

The train, unlike on 26 June 2022, started late. This train kept getting delayed because it went from a much longer diverted route and that took seven hours longer to reach Bhopal. The train, that was supposed to arrive Bhopal at 8:55 PM on 1 July arrived Bhopal at 4:20 AM on 2 July 2022. My luggage had become sizable and I needed to help of Railway staff this time too. The staff arrived to carry my luggage after I had already unloaded them from the train. Just as I was thinking that I may have to wait, I found my wife entering the platform. So, she had arrived to receive me, along with her sister this time. All the luggage was easily accommodated in her sister’s MUV and we left for the Bhopal home. We arrived there when it was early morning.

Why all these hectic activities ? “Blame” my birthday for this which took place on 20 June. That birthday, unlike the previous birthdays meant that it was finally time to say goodbye to Railway service. In other words, I was to retire on 30 June 2022. All the hectic engagements and functions were being held for that reason.

I am very happy and relieved that I managed to overcome all the logistical challenges successfully without any failure anywhere. It was quite a logistical challenge and it took some meticulous planning and co operation of many that led to successful executions of all the plans that were laid out.

To cut a long story short, with effect from 1 July 2022, I am a retired person settled in Bhopal. So this blog is now officially ASAD Bhopali. 😀

Today (5 July 2022) happens to be the 5100th day for the blog. It is an appropriate occasion for me to break this news to the readers of the blog. 🙂

On this occasion, I have chosen a song from ‘Sher e Watan’ (1971). It was directed by Harbans for New Sunrise Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Dara Singh, Nishi, Rajan Haksar, Nadira, Bela Bose, Aruna Irani, Bhagwan, Roopali, Pal Sharma, Dhanraj, Saudagar Singh, Prakash, Trilok Singh, Uma Khosla, Bramhachari etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has already been covered in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle. The song is picturised on two females where one plays the role of a male by attaching a thin mustache under her nose.

Usha Khanna is the music director. The main reason why I chose this song is that it is penned by Asad Bhopali. 😀

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This rarely heard song is a song that grows on you as you get exposed to this song.

It is a nice feeling to be able to join the club of our seniors. Hopefully I will be able to have an active and fruitful second innings like them. 🙂

Blog Day :

5100 Post No. : 17033

Today’s song is from an obscure film – ‘Vishwamitra’ (1952).I am sure that 99.9% readers must not have even heard of this film ever. Then why did I select a song from this film to discuss? There is a strong reason for it. When I first saw this film’s name in HFGK a few days ago, I noticed the name of the director and the music director and honestly, I was thrilled ! The director was Kala Maharshi Baburao Painter, one of the pioneers of Indian films- both silent as well as talkie. He was also the mentor of many film luminaries who shone later in their lives. All of them had learnt the ABCD of film making at the feet of Baburao Painter. Great directors like V Shantaram and Master Vinayak were the prominent learners under him.Any industry, to develop into a profitable one, requires hard work by the pioneers. This applies totally to the Hindi Film Industry in India. The original initiators of the film industry were not any rich people, but the industry took the seeds from ordinary, middle class people.They had no riches, but their zeal, dedication, ambition and desire to achieve goals overtook their poverty and they toiled and moiled to raise the required finance for their projects. We all know about  the great Dadasaheb Phalke, who staked everything he owned to achieve his goals and became a name to remember forever. In this endeavor, he was not alone. There was one more person from Kolhapur, who took Phalke’s dream much ahead from silent to talkie films. His name is taken today with awe and respect by film historians. He was Baburao Painter.

Kala Maharshi Baburao Painter (real name Baburao Krishnarao Mestri) was born on 3rd June 1890 at Kolhapur. The success of Dadasaheb Phalke in making films in India inspired Baburao and his cousin brother Anandrao immensely. They too wanted to make films, but it was not possible in Kolhapur. Phalke had gone to England to learn film making and had brought machinery from England. This was beyond the reach of these poor young men.

Anandrao found that a second hand projector was for sale in Null Bazar in Bombay. Crazily, he decided to change the projector into a film camera, by making some structural changes. They sold the family’s gold ornaments and bought the projector. To start with and to get further finance they used it to show films in theaters. They even showed some Hollywood films here. After several attempts, Anandrao was successful in converting the projector into a film camera. Baburao was also with him in this. Unfortunately, Anandrao died suddenly giving a setback to the project.

Baburao now needed finance to go ahead. Luckily a famous classical singer of those days, Tanibai Kagalkar – wife of Bapusaheb Kagalkar and the sister of Vinayakrao Ghorpade (who was the father of child actress and singer Vasanti), invested Rs. 15,000 – an astronomical figure for those times. Baburao established Maharashtra Film Company in Kolhapur and started preparations for making his film ‘Sairandhri’, released in 1919. The cast of this film included 2 women, Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi and Anusuya Bai aka Susheela Devi. These women were promptly thrown out of their homes and society. They remained with the company and even cooked and washed clothes of artistes, besides acting in the films other times. Gulab Bai aka Kamla Devi later posed for the symbol of Prabhat Film company- playing the tootari with bent body. She married Fattelal, one of the directors of Prabhat Films.

‘Sairandhri’ was a tremendous success. Enthused Baburao Painter made another 15 films. Lokmanya Tilak was so impressed with Baburao’s dedication, he awarded him the title of ‘Cinema Kesari’. Baburao Pendharkar was the General Manager of the company, mainly because he could speak fluent English with customers. Others were V Shantaram, Dhaiber, Damle and Fattelal as his assistants in different departments. Sarpotdar, NH Apte and Vashikar were the scriptwriters and Prof NS Phadke, the novelist, wrote film titles. In the 1920 second half, there was a big fire in the company and all films were burnt.

Baburao Painter started afresh in 1921. He made many mythological and historical films. Baburao was the first to make a social film, ‘Savkari Pash’ on the issue of exploitation of  poor farmers by money lenders in the villages. In 1928, a foreign trained film director was appointed from Bombay – Moti B Gidwani, on a fat salary. (He was later to direct the film ‘Khazanchi’ (1941) in Lahore). This caused unrest in the company and resulted in Shantaram, Dhaiber, Damle and Fattelal leaving the company. They established Prabhat Film Company. In 1930, Baburao also left the Maharashtra Film company. When talkie films started he made 7 talkie films, including 2 Hindi films – ‘Pratibha’ (1937) and ‘Matwala Shaayar Ramjoshi’ (1947) along with Shantaram. He then left films and concentrated on his painting and sculpture. In the year 1952, he was forced by his old friend BG Pawar to come to Bombay and direct his film ‘Vishwamitra’. However, most of the  shooting was done in Kolhapur itself. Baburao Painter died on 16-1-1954 at Kolhapur.

Baburao’s contribution to Indian film industry-

  1. He was the first to use colored screens and clothes for realistic effect.
  2. Indoor filming with artificial lighting.
  3. Fade out and fade in techniques
  4. Outdoor shootings; Debaki Bose, in his visit to the studio, was amazed to see Baburao’s working techniques.
  5. Making sketches of scenes and costumes before shooting.
  6. Advertising posters. Film booklets with film story and pictures.

All assistants of Baburao Painter became big people. He was simply a God sent gift to the Hindi film industry.

[Author’s Note: Thanks for the information culled from ‘The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema’ by Ashish Rajadhyaksha, ‘Marathi Cinema in Retrospect’ by Sanjit Narwekar and my own notes.]

Another surprising name was that of the Music Director- B Laxman aka Laxman Berlekar. When the talkie films started, it created tremendous curiosity among not only the audience but also those who loved acting, singing and composing music. Even the great names in these fields had a desire to act, to sing or to compose music for the films. Actors who were legends on the stage dramas like Master Nissar or Bal Gandharva, professional singers like Manik Varma, musicians like Pt Ravi Shankar, and poets like Kazi Nazrul Islam (now the national poet of Bangladesh) did their bits in few films. Most of these professionals contributed in just one or two films and then disappeared from the film line.

Some of the ‘one/two films’ music composers are Imam Baksh – ‘Mr and Mrs Bombay’ (1936), Shankar Rao Khatu – ‘Village Girl’ (1936), Master Ratnakant – ‘Rangbhoomi’ (1935), Pt Hansraj – ‘Mastana Mashooq’ (1936), Harish Bharadwaj – ‘Ahinsa Path’ (1949), Dattaram Gadekar – ‘Vikram Shashikala’ (1949), Chetumal – ‘Bombay’ (1949), Madhukar Golwalkar – ‘Main Abla Nahin Hoon’ (1950), Prafulla Chaudhari – ‘Swayamsidha’ (1949), Madhukar Acharya – ‘Kinaara’ (1949), Kazi Nazrul Islam – ‘Chauranghee’ (1942) etc.

B Laxman was also one such one film wonder in Hindi, though he had been a well known name in Marathi films and stage dramas. Berlekar was born in 1920 at Kolhapur. He loved music from his childhood. He first learnt playing harmonium and then studied in Gandharva Mahavidyalaya. Famous singer Wamanrao Padhye was his teacher.

In those days Ganesh Melas were popular in Maharashtra. Berlekar and Sudhir Phadke acted and sang in mela dramas. Both worked in Shrikrishna Sangeet Mela of Kolhapur. Laxman was very handsome and had a good personality. He acted as a child Prahlad in Hindi film ‘Bhakta Prahlad’ (1934) made by Saraswati Cinetone of Poona. Berlekar sang Hindi ghazals very well he gave music to 7 Marathi films and 1 Kannada film. ‘Vishwamitra’ was the only Hindi film he did. He used different pseudo-names like B Laxman, Dinkar Laxman and LB Sarang (saarang was his favourite Raag).

[Author’s Note: Thanks to ‘मराठी चित्रपट संगीतकार कोष’ for this information.]

Film ‘Vishwamitra’ was made by producer Baswant Pawar under the banner of his own Baswant Films, Bombay. It was directed by Baburao Painter and music was by B Laxman. All the 6 songs and the film story was written by Manohar Khanna (father of MD Usha Khanna). The cast was DK Sapru, Sheela Nayak, Vivek, Madhav Kale, Apte and many others. Today’s song is the second song of this film here.

Welcome all to this post which again is coming after a ‘long gap’ in this series. Well, I hope to conclude this series too at the earliest possible 🙂 .

In this tenth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna – the Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1983. This was the year of Rajesh Khanna. He was back on the top with a bang. I don’t know if I should say this that he was reinstated as the ‘King of Bollywood’ once again.

The successes of the movies ‘Avtaar’, ‘Sautan’, and to an extent of the movie ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’ brought Kaka back into the limelight again. Another movie ‘Nishaan’ starring Kaka which was also released during this year 1983 also performed well at the box-office. Though he had delivered some versatile performances and kept doing different roles during the period 1975 to 1978 he was still far away from that level of success which he had tasted before.

He finally got a big boost in 1983 after his continued good performances, critically acclaimed performances and some commercially hit performances in the previous years i.e. from 1979 to 1982. Hit movies like ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodisi Bewafaai’ (1980); critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose’ (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980); successful movies like ‘Bandish’ in 1980; and then multi-starrer hits like ‘Qudrat’ in 1981, and ‘Raajput’, ‘Ashaanti’, and ‘Dharam Kaanta’ in 1982 had finally paid off. With two back-to-back hits – ‘Avtaar’ and ‘Sautan’, where Kaka was the main lead and a semi-hit like ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’, brought a new life to Kaka’s filmi career or his ‘second innings’ as it is generally said.

In the year 1983 the following five movies of Rajesh Khanna were released. Although the movie ‘Baabu’ was passed by Censor Board in 1983, I remember it was released in theaters in 1985. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

Sl. No. Movie Title Director Censor Date
01 Agar Tum Na Hote Lekh Tandon 27.10.1983
02 Avtaar Mohan Kumar 27.01.1983
03 Baabu^ A.C. Trilokchander 01.11.1983
04 Nishaan Surendra Mohan 06.01.1983
05 Sautan Sawan Kumar 24.05.1983

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Avtaar’. And since this year 1983 was a special year for Kaka, I would like to present more posts covering songs from this year. Let us see how it works.

‘Avtaar’ made its debut on the blog on 27.08.2012 with this song “Ho Ooperwaale Tera Jawaab Nahin” and I would like to quote below what Atul ji had written about this movie of Rajesh Khanna.

“Avtaar” (1983) was a movie of Rajesh Khanna during the second innings of his acting career when he was no longer a superstar. The movies in which Rajesh Khanna acted during this phase won critical acclaim though even if Rajesh Khanna came nowhere close to regaining his lost crown.

 

‘Avtaar’ was produced and directed by Mohan Kumar for his home productions Emkay Enterprises. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sachin, AK Hangal, Sujit Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Madhu Malini, Yunus Parvez, Shashi Puri, Gulshan Grover, Pichoo Kapoor, Ranjan Grewal, Preeti Sapru and others. Madan Puri had a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kumar and Mushtaq Jalili. Screenplay of this movies was written by Mohan Kumar and dialogues were written by Mushtaq Jalili. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Bhatt. It was passed by Censor Board on 27.01.1983. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that this film was re-certified with English sub-titles by Censor Board on 06.05.1983.

The movie has five songs (including one two-part song) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. This is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Alka Yagnik, and Mahendra Kapoor. This song is picturized on Shashi Puri-Preeti Sapru, Gulshan Grover-Rajni Sharma. Both couples are lip syncing the voices of Suresh Wadkar and Alka Yagnik. Mahendra Kapoor’s voice is used for background score where we can see Rajesh Khanna working hard in his own garage and preparing himself for a greater challenge.

In the movie this song happens when Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi have left their home as their sons have betrayed them. Sachin (Sewak) accompanies them and arranges a temporary shelter for them. Not only this, after listening the conversation between his master and bibi ji he understands what his master needs. He then donates his blood and from the money for the blood, he buys aujaar (tools) for his master so that he can start his own garage. Rajesh Khanna has an uphill task from here to turn the fortunes while his sons are enjoying with their friends. That is where this song takes place, and we have some meaningful lyrics to listen.

That was all around forty years back now.

And if we go back fifty years i.e. to the year 1973 we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

One can notice that three movies (out of five) whose songs were covered on 4 july 2012 have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today on 4 July 2022.

“Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964) is one of the BTYC eligible movies.

“Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964) was produced and direted by V Shantaram for V Shantaram productions, Bombay. The movie had Rajhsree Shantaram, Jeetendra (new artist), Surendra,Bharati,K.Date,Mai Bhide,Nana Palshikar,C.H.Atma,Paresh Kumar,Dalvir,Parshuram,Kamaal, Babloo etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight songs from the movie have already been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the eight songs that have been covered so far:-

Only audio of the song appears to be available. In case the song was picturised, it may have been picturised as a mujra song on Rajshree. I request our knowledgeabe readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the songs of “Geeta Gaaya pattharon Ne”(1964) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 60
————————————————————————————–

Welcome all to this post under ‘blog ten year challenge 2012-2022’.

Ten years back on this day i.e. 03rd July’2012, as many as seven songs from seven different movies were covered on the blog.

The details of these songs are as given below:-

Song Title Name of the movie (Year) Remarks
Aise machal ke nain badal ke Do Gunde(1959) Movie Yippeeee’ed by now
Phoolon se dosti hai Duniya Jhukti Hai(1960) 2 of 8 songs posted
Chadhe chanda to tum bhi chale aana Aplam Chaplam(1961) 3 of 7 songs posted
Dhaley din aise Laal Kothi(1978) 1 of 4 songs posted
Kaa jaanoon main sajaniyaa Hum Paanch(1980) 3 of 6 songs posted
Jaan e jaan dhoondhta phir rahaa Jawaani Deewaani(1972) Movie Yippeeee’ed by now
Dil ki baat kahin lab pe na aa jaaye Teri Qasam(1982) 1 of 6 songs posted

From the above table we can see that only two movies out of seven movies represented on the blog on that day have since been ‘Yippeeee’ed on the blog.

This means that five movies are eligible for blog ten year challenge today (3 July 2022).

I am presenting a song from the ‘1982’ movie ‘Teri Qasam’.

Today 3rd July’2022 is also the seventieth birthday of Singer Amit Kumar (born on 3rd July’1952). On this occasion I am presenting a song from ‘Teri Qasam’ which is sung by Amit Kumar.

‘Teri Qasam-1982’ was directed by A.C. Trilokchander for ‘Navjeevan Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Titu.

It had Kumar Gaurav, Poonam Dhillon, Girish Karnad, Ranjeeta, Nirupa Roy, Monty, Paintal, Jyoti Bakshi, Neelu Arora, Najma, Rakesh Bedi, Mushtaq Merchant, Kanti, Manmouji, Birbal, S.P. Chaturvedi, Dinkar Chaudhary, Meghdoot, Bhola, Shivraj, Babli, Gauri Verma, Raj Bachchan and others.

This movie introduced Shiv Kapoor.

Padmini Kapila, Mukul Agrawal made special appearances in this movie while music director Laxmikant had a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.05.1982.

This movie had six songs thatwere written by Anand Bakshi R.D. Burman was the music director.

Here is the list of songs of “Teri Kasam”(1982):-.

Sr.No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Ham jis raste pe chale us raste pe thhi preet khadi Lata Mangeshkar, Amit Kumar
02 Ye zameen gaa rahi hai aasmaan gaa rahaa hai Amit Kumar
03 Gee two hai haan jee haan, gee two hai Amit Kumar
04 Kya huaa ek baat par barson ka yaraana gaya Amit Kumar
05 Mere geeton mein meri kahaaniyaan hai Amit Kumar
06 Dil ki baat kahin lab pe na aa jaaye Amit Kumar

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog and that was ten years ago on 03.07.2012. It means that this movie has completed its ten years run on the blog with only one of its songs posted.

While presenting the first song from this movie on the blog, Atul ji has given his opinion why Kumar Gaurav turned to be a failure after his debutant ‘big-hit’ movie ‘Love Story’.
Though Atul ji has mentioned that the music of this movie was composed by R.D. Burman but ‘he did not enjoy the songs of this movie’ may be because he didn’t like this movie.
But I would like to mention here that I liked all the songs of this movie very much. I had watched this movie, and I have no recollections whether I had liked at that time. But Pancham Da has given a very nice musical score ino this movie. All the songs from this movie are very good. However, only one song from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year 1982. This song ‘ye zameen gaa rahi hai’ stood at 22nd position.

We will be enjoying the others songs from this movie in the future.

Today we are going to listen to the second song from this movie.

This song sung by Amit Kumar is a nice song from this movie which is lip synced by Kumar Gaurav. From the picturisation of this song the song seems to be a stage show song wherein we can also see Poonam Dhillon and many other artists seated among the audience.

Let us now listen to today’s song which seems to happen after the two lovers (Kumar Gaurav and Poonam Dhillon) get estranged over some misunderstanding 🙂

Wishing Amit Kumar a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Hullo Atuldom

Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia was born on 1st July 1938 to a father who wanted the son to be a wrestler. The obedient son did go to the Akhada and trained with his father along with learning music and practising at a friend’s home.

Pt. Hariji has said once, and I quote, “he was not very good at wrestling but the training had helped him build up strength and stamina which has helped him play the bansuri (flute) to this day.”

Initially he was learning vocal music but switched to playing the flute and Bholanath Prasanna of Varanasi was his guru. After a few years, Annapurna Devi was his guide and that is when he turned to playing the flute left-handed. Panditji is the recipient of numerous awards including the Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has collaborated with Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma since the 60s with albums like “Call of the Valley”. The Shiv-Hari combo gave music to a few Hindi films too, most of them from YashRaj Films.

Today we are wishing Panditji on turning 84 a few days back with a composition that is from Yash Chopra directed, Firoz A Nadiadwala produced and May 1993 released “Parampara”.

Much of the movie was shot in the famous boarding school of Ajmer -Mayo College. It starred Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher as the seniors. Raveena Tandon, Neelam Kothari, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan (this was his debut in Hindi films) formed the young brigade. Ashwini Bhave and Ramya Krishnan were cast as Vinod Khanna’s wives – one chosen by him and the other by his father Sunil Dutt. Saif and Aamir were VK’s children who are educated in a boarding school where they sing today’s song. Anand Bakshi wrote the songs.

This is a song which has Amit Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar singing for the collegiates who are enjoying after “lights out” (I have seen this movie a long time back, hope I am correct?)

3rd July a very important date in the life of a singer who has carried the legacy of his family, in HFM. His uncle began as an actor who used to sing his own songs; most of which are popular to this date. I am speaking of the Ganguly family and the uncle I spoke of was Ashok Kumar. 3rd July happens to be the birthdate of Amit Kumar who was born into the Ganguly Family as son of Kishore Kumar (a singer-actor in his own league) and Ruma (who was also an actor-singer).

There are singers and people connected with the arts in Ruma’s lineage too -Ruma’s mother was also a singer. It is hardly surprising that Amit Kumar took to singing early in life. There are interviews available in public Domain where Amit Kumar has spoken about how he used to sing at Durga Pooja pandals and how his mother complained to his ‘Baba’ etc. Amit Kumar has also spoken about how his father “Baba” took him to Bombay (Mumbai back then) and how he began his journey. One thing about Amit Kumar is that he never tried to ape his father. His voice was distinct and we have a few duets of Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar where the distinction is obvious (two of these are on the blog.)

We have had 58 Amit Kumar songs (only) on the blog. The categories listed on the right hand side of the blog show that he has had duets with all possible male and female playback singers. We also have songs (on the blog) where he has appeared on-screen. Today- 3rd July – we wish Amit Kumar on turning 70.

What!!!! did I say 70!!!! Unbelievable. He is still so youthful when we see him on the various reality shows as judge. He is his father’s biggest fan. And we are his fans. A very Very Happy Birthday Amitda.

Belated Wishes to Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia on turning an year older.

With this Shiv-Hari song from “Parampara” which makes its debut on the blog.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Nirdosh-1973’.

‘Nirdosh-1973’ was directed by S.M. Sagar for ‘Nav Sampati Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Nariman.H.Baria and A. Khaliq
This movie has Vinod Mehra, Yogita Bali, Padma Khanna, Mehmood Junior, Iftekhar, Nazneen, Mohan Choti, Sujit Kumar, Mumtaz Begum, Lalita Kumari, Kuljeet, Yograj, Lakhanpal, Saidul Hasan, Yunus Parvez, Shivraj, Dilip Dutt, Pardesi, O.N. Mehrotra, Chanchal Kumar, Amir Ali, Mohan Shery, C.S. Dubey, Murad, Shyamu, Bramhchari and others.

Story, screenplay, and dialogues of this movie were written by Aziz Qaisi. Editing of this movie was done by P.S. Wagle.

This movie has four songs in it that were written by Asad Bhopali and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 09.06.2012 i.e. ten years back with its song ‘Koyi mantar maar de aisa koyi jantar…’. The second song from this movie was posted on the blog on 28.12.2012 and this song was ‘ho koyee pyaar se tohe dekhe sanwariyaa’.

The first song of this movie posted on the blog was an Asha Bhonsle solo song and the second song was a duet by Asha Bhonsle and Mohd Rafi.

This movie completed its ten-year run on the blog recently on 09.06.2022. However, it missed the posting of a song from it under the ‘blog ten-year challenge’. But that does not prevent us from discussing a song from this movie and listening it today.

Just for information ten years back on 09.06.2012 there were three songs were posted on the blog as summarised below:-.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Aayi pari rang bhari kissne pukaaraa Do Phool(1958) All songs covered
Kalpana ke ghan baraste Amar Jyoti(1965) 6 of 9 songs posted
Koyi mantar maar de aisa koyi jantar.. Nirdosh(1973) 2 of 4 songs posted

Out of the three movies represented on the blog on 09.06.2012 only one movie viz. ‘Do Phool-1958’ has been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog.

‘Amar Jyoti-1965’ and ‘Nirdosh-1973’ are yet to be YIPPEED.

Incidentally movies with title ‘Amar Jyoti’ were also released in ‘1936’ and ‘1984’. None of these movies with the name ‘Amar Jyoti’ have been YIPPEED so far.

Movies with the title ‘Nirdosh’ were made in ‘1941’ and ‘1950’ and ‘1973’. it is the movie of the most recent vintage viz 1973 that is being discussed today. None of these ‘Nirdosh’ have been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog 😊
That gives an opportunity to bring these titles closer to their journey of ‘Yippeeee-land’.

So, today, I am presenting herewith a song from the ‘1973’ – ‘Nirdosh’.

Lyrics of today’s song have been sent by Prakashchandra. When I received his mail and read the movie name ‘Nirdosh’, I became curious to know about the songs of this movie since I had no recollection about the title and its songs.

After listening to the songs of this movie, I realised that the song ‘ho koyee pyaar se tohe dekhe sanwariyaa’ has a familiar ring to it. I might have listened to this song on radio or elsewhere earlier.
Sujit Kumar and others can also be seen in the picturisation.

As mentioned above lyrics of the today’s song is written by Asad Bhopali and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

“Maha Pooja”(1954) was directed by Shaanti Kumar for Amar jyot Pictures, bombay. The movie had Naina,Ratnamala, Amirbai Karnataki, Shashi Kapoor senior(not the famous one), Anant Marathe, Prem Prakash, Bikram Kapoor, Kusum Thakur, Sabita Chatterjee etc. Prem Adib and Murad were guest artists in the movie.

“Maha Pooja”(1954) had nine songs in it. four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Maha Pooja”(1954) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this song, a Krishn bhajan is available. Seeing that Amirbai Karnataki acted in the film, it is clear that the song was picturised on herself.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Cape Fear’ (1962) was a noir psychological thriller that had Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum and Polly Bergen in the cast and was directed by J Lee Thompson. The movie was based on the 1957 novel ‘The Executioners’ by John D. Macdonald. The movie was the story of an attorney whose family is stalked by a criminal he had helped to send to jail.

‘Mangal Dada (1986) was directed by Ramesh Gupta, had Sunil Dutt, Reena Roy, Amjad Khan, Sarika, Satyendra Kapoor, Achala Sachdev, Farida Jalal, Bhagwan Dada, Birbal etc in its cast. Though it released in 1986 it was launched in 1975. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and songs were written by Shaily Shailendra, Gauhar Kanpuri, and Indeevar. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mageshkar, Aarti Mukherjee and Manhar Udhas were the playback singers. It seems Reena Roy’s voice was dubbed by someone else.

‘Qayamat’ (1983) was directed by Raj N Sippy. It had Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil in its cast. (Jaya Prada’s was either a special or guest appearance). Majrooh Sultanpuri and RD Burman were the lyricist and music director for songs that were sung by Asha Bhonsle. One song sequence from this movie is posted on the blog as part of Sudhirji’s series on ‘songs repeated in Hindi films’ – this one “Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai“.

‘Kanoon Kya Karega’ (1984) was directed by Mukul Anand and had a cast of Suresh Oberoi, Danny, Deepti Naval, Iftekhar, Shraddha Verma, Sharat Saxena etc. in the cast. The music was by Salil Choudhury but I can’t find any songs attributed to this movie. (I think I have seen this on television).

“Zahreela” (2001) was also directed by Raj N Sippy (he seemed to have been in love with the plot.) The movie’s cast was Mithun Chakravarthy, Om Puri, Kashmera Shah, Gulshan Grover, Shalini Kapoor, etc. The songs were written by Dev Kohli and Anand-Milind were the music directors. Abhijeet, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jaspinder Narula, Purnima, Sonu Nigam, and Preeti Uttam were the playback singers.

I am sure the reader is thinking why I have listed all these movies here. Well all the Hindi films were inspired from ‘Cape Fear’. This statement will give us an idea of the story of all the movies.

This post has a song from ‘Mangal Dada’ which is written by Gauhar Kanpuri and is sung by Manhar Udhas and Lata Mangeshkar.

Gauhar Kanpuri made his debut in Bollywood in 1967 but the real breakthrough came in 1975 when he wrote the songs for Sunil Dutt’s ‘Zakhmee’. After ‘Zakhmee’ he regularly associated with Bappi Lahiri. Many of the songs he wrote went on to become popular:- “Abhi Abhi Thi Dushmani” (Zakhmee), “Ae Mere Humsafar Ae Meri Jaan-e-Jaan” (‘Baazigar’ – 1993), “Tumhe Geeton Mein Dhaaloonga” (‘Saawn Ko Aane Do’ – 1979) to name some. In his career of nearly 25 years he wrote around 300 songs for almost 120 films. The statistics page of our blog says that there are 22 songs written by him on the blog. He was born on 1st October 1932 and passed away on 29th June 2002.

[Author’s Note: The matter for this post has been extracted from Cinemaazi article – ‘Gauhar Kanpuri – Lyricist‘. And I found this site has given atulsongaday.me as its source. Back to starting point? 🙂 ]

30th June is the birth anniversary of Shri Kalyanji Veerji Shah of the Kalyanji-Anandji music director duo. He would have been 94. I am sure we have enough material on the blog on this music duo and Kalyanji bhai, in particular. We all know that the musical journey of Kalyanji Bhai began when he played the ‘been music‘ for ‘Nagin’ in 1954. A journey that went on for almost 46 years with one popular song following the other. Each and every lover of HFM will have a personal playlist of Kalyanji-Anandji song. The blog has 630 songs of this duo from a possible 1435.

Today’s song must be a rare occasion when K-A associated with Gauhar Kanpuri. I haven’t found a video link to the song; but I am assuming that it is filmed on Sunil Dutt and Reena Roy.

Song – Kadam Kadam Tera Pyaar Hum Paate Rahen Sanam (Mangal Dada) (1986) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Manhar Udhas, Lyrics – Gauhar Kanpuri, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
Lata Mangeshkar + Manhar Udhas
