Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

In haathhon se sabki gaadi chal rahi hai

Posted on: August 29, 2011


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

Greetings and welcome all to the 4500th song on this blog.

A little more than 3 years, 4500 plus songs (considering that there are a few multiple version songs), gives us an average of ~ 1500 songs per year, which works out to an average of a little over 4 songs per day. When Atul ji had started working this blog (as Song-A-Day 😀 ), I am not sure how far in the future he would have visualized, and how much coverage he would have been projecting in his own mind. But from the vantage point of today, looking back over the three years, I can certainly say the following. The treasure of music that has been accumulated on this blog, speaks volumes for the commitment and consistency that Atul ji has applied to this effort. It is not a simple task to be discussing on an average 4 songs per day; an average that is up to 6 – 7 songs in the recent months. Discussing, yes – not simply posting a song, but researching, confirming information, putting the lyrics in place, looking for online links, publishing the item if not already available online, preparing a brief write up, and then the physical task of putting the song and all the associated data online. The only one link that seems clear in the effort picture described above, in the absence of the fact that this is not job or a profession for him – the only link that shines through is his love for this music. And I am sure all readers will agree with me and will join me in greeting Atul ji on the continued success of this endeavor, and wishing that this kaarwaan of mausiquee to continue forever. The song from Ek Jhalak (1957) comes to mind

ye hastaa huaa karwaan zindagi ka
na poochho chalaa hai kidhar
tamanna hai ye saath chalte rahen hum
na beetey kabhi ye safar. . . .

Another key point for this milestone. The 45th century has been achieved in a record time of 13 days. This beats the previous record of 14 days, that was established with the 43rd century.

And now, coming to this 4500th offering. I must thank Arun ji for connecting the dots for me. This surely is a rare song. I have heard it long back, and then it disappeared for a while. I was not aware that this is a deleted song from the iconic movie Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958). As I went back to check the blog, I realized that as yet only 2 songs from this movie are posted. I am sure the others will also follow in short order – the songs of this movie are simply irrepressible.

Coming back to this song. After seeing two reminders of ‘patience’ 🙂 from Arun ji, I was intrigued. I searched and found this song, and here it is for your listening pleasure. Besides, I discovered the connection between this song and the movie, thanks to Arun ji. I have seen this movie so many times, but I have always viewed the versions in and after the 70s and 80s when the song was not in the film. It surprised me that this song was taken out probably due to the line that mentions Dilip Kumar’s name. There are so many songs that contain the names of real actors, but this is first time I heard that a song had to be deleted for this reason.

Talking about exclusions, there are other instances wherein songs have been removed from films, and then independently, the same songs turned out to be hits and became very popular. A few examples come to mind.

1. The song Chain se hamko kabhi jeene na diyaa from the film Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye (1974). This song was excluded due to some differences that arose between OP Nayyar and Asha Bhosle, after this movie was completed. Despite the exclusion, the song turned out to be the Filmfare award winner of the year.

2. The song Balmaa khuli hawaa mein from the film Kashmir Ki Kali (1964) Originally the film was released with the song, and then as an afterthought, the censor came down on this film post-release, and ordered the removal of this song, as it crossed the limits of decency pertaining to “revealing” the female figure. The song was taken out after the film already had a one week run in the cinema halls.

3. The song “Akhiyon Ko Rehne De Akhiyon Ke Aas Paas” from the film Bobby (1973). This song is available in the album, and probably was part of the original release of the film also. But then it was shortly removed from the film.

4. The song “Hum Ne To Dil Ko Aap Ke Kadmon Pe Rakh Diya” from the film Mere Sanam.

5. The song Main pyaar ka raahi hoon from the film Ek Musafir Ek Hasina.

I am sure there are more such instances, and would request our readers to add more information related to them.

Now, coming back to the song for this post. Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi is a comedy musical produced under the banner of KS Films and directed by Satyen Bose. The star lineup includes the trio of Ganguly brothers, Ashok, Anoop and Kishore, and also has Madhubala, Veena, Sahira, Helen, Cuckoo, Sajjan, KN Singh, SN Bannerjee, Mohan Choti and others. The wonderful compositions are from the baton of SD Burman. In this movie, Burman Da’s assistants were Jaidev and RD Burman. The lyrics are penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

The story revolves around three brothers who own the Mohan Garage, an automobile repair shop, and their adventures in romance as well as in the world of gangsters. On screen, this song is performed in the garage, by the three brothers, and their assistant mechanic, Mohan Choti. The assistant mechanic strikes up a conversation topic as to reason behind the popularity and success of this enterprise and why do customers trust them for repair work. In response, there is a song (what else? 🙂 ). Kishore Kumar breaks into this song and then the other two brothers join in. In the song, the line about Dilip Kumar is also mimicked by Kishore Da himself. (Right now, only the audio clip is available; the above description of on screen performance, is provided by Arun ji himself). The words in the song say that the cars of this world are in good running condition because of the labor and efforts of the car mechanics.

It surely is a pity that this song had to be excluded from the movie, and under such minor pretext.

Enjoy this rare find, rendered in the typical style of Kishore da, and thanks once again to Arun ji, for reminding to dig this out. Voila. 😀

Sudhir ji / Atul ji,
Thank you very much for posting this song.I requested for this song to Atul ji,because most of the readers might not be even aware of this song as it was removed from the film,after its release,within a week’s to a month’s time (depending upon the place ).
In those days I was a Bhakta of Kishore Kumar and used to see all his movies on the FIRST DAY FIRST SHOW basis,whenever possible.Not that it was always possible,but then it would be within a week’s time at the most.
When we saw this movie,we enjoyed a lot.3 of its songs were very popular,the first ofcourse was Bajoo-Babu samjho ishare….. the second was the above song and the third was dedo mera 5 rupiaya bara anna.
After few days we came to know that this song is removed from the film.Those of our friends who missed it felt very sad.However its record was already out and was not withdrawn from the market.It too went out of stock as people bought it immediately,lest it too was withdrawn.However the song and the record is available even today,luckily.
The reason why the song was removed from the film,as published later,was that Dilip kumar’s reference was made in the song as “rota tha Dilip Kumar…” I dont know if the objection was from Dilip kumar,but it was said,’not to hurt the feelings of Dilip kumar fans…etc’.
Though earlier too in many songs,Actors and Actresses names were woven into songs,there was no derogatory description in them.Actually,if you hear Kishore Kumar’s song,” Khush hai jamana aaj pehli taareekh hai…..”,in it also Dilip Kumar’s name was taken by him.
Anyway,I am sure this song will be liked by our readers.
Thanks once again.
-AD
N.B. My congratulations for reaching the level of 4500 songs.It truly is a great achievement.My good wishes for newer heights in the future.As they say…” Atul ji, Aagey Badho-Hum Tumhare Saath Hai “.

Thanks a lot for this farmaish, as well as for your patience. Getting to know about such rare gems and also getting to know about the background behind such songs- all this is priceless, and we are privileged to have you among us in this blog.

And I am very thankful to Sudhir jee, who wrote this aryicle as soon as he got to know about your farmaish, but this song is so special that I decided to wait a while to post it as the 4500th song of the blog.

Thanks a lot for your best wishes. Indeed, I would like us to be able to discuss many more great songs and reach many more landmarks in future.

Sudhir,

Out of five instances you indicated of songs being excluded from the movies released, four were of O P Nayyar. Here is one more of OP Nayyar song meant for SAWAN KI GHATA (1966) which was not included in the movie :

Yes, it is an interesting trivia that most excluded songs are from O P Nayyar movies. But O P Nayyar is not to blamed for the exclusion of these songs. In fact, the losers are the music lovers. We are fortunate that at least the audio of these great songs are still available.

Hearty congrats, Atul, for this milestone!!! 4500 songs!!! Wow!

What a delightful song too! Have never heard this song before. Loved it when I heard it for the first time today. Vintage Kishore da.

Wonderful write-up, Sudhirji. Indeed there have been a few lovely songs that got recorded but didn’t get into the film when it was released. I think there was a song also in Ye Raaste Hain Pyar Ke. And wasn’t there a song of Mughal-e-Azam also? And I can’t help feeling there may have been a song of Pyaasa too.

Thanks a lot, Raja. so you too had not heard this sonfg before ? Good to know that you too are a mortal sometimes, like me. 😀

I too seem to recall that a Mughl e Azam song was deleted from themovie. And even a few “Barsaat” (1949) songs were deleted from the movie. One can make a good list of such deleted songs. In fact, this blog too has a categiry called “songs deleted from the movie” as well as a related category called ‘songs deleted from the DVD/VCD” 😀

Hi Atul,
Heartfelt wishes for reaching this milestone and all the best to reach even higher.
I’m following this blog since a few days now and i am mesmerized by the wide and great variety of songs that’s put up regularly. still pleasurable is the experience of getting a chance to listen musical genius which have somehow stayed back to hold on to it’s preciousness with a subdued aura to a generation of listener which were their own.

It’s a pleasure being here. Keep up the good work.
