Bhor aayi gayaa andhiyaaraa

Posted on: May 23, 2011


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

It has been variously said that there is a song in Hindi movies for practically any occasion, any situation, any profession, in short, there is a song for probably just anything. One just has to look for it long enough. The list of categories of songs on this blog itself is evidence that there are absolutely zany and unthinkable situations for which there are songs in Hindi movies. So, is there a song for cleaning dishes? I am sure there are more than one song in domestic or business situations wherein dishes are being cleaned with music and singing. How about cleaning dishes and utensils to classical music? :D)

Here is one. Although the focus of the song is not washing dishes, but in one part of the song, folks on the screen are cleaning utensils to the tune of the classical morning raag, Alhaiya Bilawal.

Bawarchi is comparatively a recent movie i.e. compared to the songs of Kanan Devi and Pahadi Sanyal. Released in 1972, it has both a vintage and new look appeal. Vintage, because the movie is almost 40 years old today, and new look, because all, or most of the characters are known, familiar, and many of them are still with us. And this mixture of vintage and new look is also reflected in the team of actors that get together for this song. The line up contains many generations of artists both on screen and in the background. Take for example, Durga Khote, heroine in the movies since 1930s. she is the Rani Taramati in the 1932 production of ‘Ayodhyecha Raja’ by Prabhat Studios, then she is Princess Mrinalwati from the 1943 epic movie, Prithvi Vallabh by Sohrab Modi, on to being Jodha Bai in K Asif’s magnum opus ‘Mughal e Azam’, and now in 1972, she is the elder daughter-in-law of the retired and widower Postmaster, Shivnath Sharma (played to the hilt by Harendranath Chattopadhyay). Or take Usha Kiran, starting her career in 1948, with a golden track record from movies like Daag, Baadbaan, Patita, Kabiuliwala etc. Then we have the later generation (termed as new in 1972) with Rajesh Khanna, Jaya Bhaduri, Asrani, Manisha, Paintal etc. Not counting out AK Hangal, a senior theatre artist whose screen debut was with Teesri Kasam in 1966. (Interesting trivia – AK Hangal “walked” the ramp in a wheel chair, at a fashion show in Mumbai, in Feb 2011). Or Kali Bannerjee, the doyen of the golden age of Bengali cinema, playing the second son, Kashinath in this movie. And of course, Dadu ji, the geriatric head of the ‘Shanti Niwas’ in the movie; Hirendranath Chattopadhyay, a playwright and a poet, independent member of Parliament of the first Lok Sabha (1952-57) from Vijaywada; born in 1898, and screen debut in 1962 movie Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam. And then we have the stalwarts behind the screen, artists like Kaifi Azmi, Madan Mohan, Manna Da, Kishore Da, Laxmi Shankar and Nirmala Devi. It took all these folks of varied origins and pedigree, to pull together this light classical tour-de-force that has the entire joint family up at the break of dawn and singing a welcome to the new day. And pulling it all together is the master of India’s “middle class” cinema, Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

The day starts with the “servant” of the house (Raghu, played by Rajesh Khanna) cleaning the dishes and utensils, and singing to the tiniest member of the family, Pintoo Baba (played by Raju Shreshta). On hearing the song, the first one to get up is Asrani, (In the movie, Asrani plays the youngest son, Vishwanath, aka Babbu, an aspiring music director in Bollywood, having a job as an assistant to the famed duo composers ‘Rajnikant-Nyaarelal’). Then cousin sisters, Jaya and Manisha join. Dadu ji joins, followed by his two others sons and daughters-in-law (whom he ‘lovingly’ calls “kanoon ki beti”), and then what follows is literally a tour-de-force. One expected Asrani to pull out the guitar and play Elvis, for he is a music director in waiting. One expects Jaya and Manisha to dance, for they are shown as learning dance in the movie. We even expect Harendranath to sing, for he is known for his singing on and off screen; check out the movie Aashirwaad. But seeing Durga Khote and Usha Kiran mark steps to the teen-taal is a surprise and a veritable treat to watch. The looks on the faces of AK Hangal and Kali Bannerjee are the prize in themselves, on seeing their wives mark out the Kathak steps. 🙂

The wonderful, hearty and happy lyrics are by Kaifi Azmi, a song full of joy bringing the entire family together. The light classical composition, based on raag Alhaiya Bilawal is by Madan Mohan, allowing for all, from Jaya, to Asrani, to Harindranath, to Durga Khote and Usha Kiran to participate. The voices are many; Manna Dey singing for Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Da singing for Asrani, Laxmi Shankar singing for Jaya, Nirmala Devi singing for Manisha, and last but not the least, Harendranath singing for himself. Madan ji has used this raag earlier also in the movie “Man Mauji” – ‘Chanda Re Jaa Re Jaa Re’. In this song, the classical touch is greatly enhanced, for we have two acclaimed classical singers, Manna Dey and Lakshmi Shankar lending their voice to make this a wholly remarkable musical creation.

So just click on play and enjoy this wonderful ‘all family affair’ full of fun and joy.

(NOTE: As part of the lyrics, I have tried to note down the sargam and the taal as much as I could possibly do. I would request the readers who have better knowledge of the classical music and dance steps, to kindly review and correct / complete the sargam and taal notations. There is one place in the lyrics indicated by (. . . . ) where I have not been able to pick out the taal at all. I would appreciate inputs from more knowledgeable readers. Thanks. 🙂 )

If I am not mistaken, there is a song where Sanjeev Kumar is at cleaning the utensils. Most probably it is from Swayamwar, where he plays a rich man playing a servant like in Naukar.

“And pulling it all together is the master of India’s “middle class” cinema, Hrishikesh Mukherjee.” How true. All Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies were nice neat and clean fun, with a social message thrown in. I remember “Khoobsurat”, “Rang Birangi”, “Naram Garam” “Golmal”, “Rajni gandha”, “Angoor” etc. Serious movies would be “Anand”, Abhimaan and Bemisaal etc. “Bawarchi ” was very nice movie, the character played by Rajesh Khanna is loved by all the other characters and plays a binding role in the family, till he decided to sacrifice the love/respect of the same family members and runs away with that big suitcase which is supposed to hold all the wealth kept hidden by the Old man.

Hello PVC’s Mom

U r right about “angoor” was directed by Gulzar. It was based on “Comedy of errors” by W. shakespeare. Hope u dont mind the abbr. name(pvc). It has stuck me as this since the beginning, when i first saw yr comments.
