Mast bahaaron ka main aashiq

Posted on: August 27, 2012


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

A few days ago the blog completed 6500 songs and also 1600 songs of Rafi Sahab. Moreover Lata Mangeshkar also has achieved 1900 songs in the blog. So the two of them have featured in more than 3000 or almost 3500 songs in the blog. The difference being the Rafi-Lata duets and some more songs like group songs where they both are singing alongwith others.

Our film industry is unique in this aspect that the vocalist here are having tremendous scope and range to perform. The sky is the limit literally. And both Rafi and Lata have touched the sky and come back. No other platform in the world comes even close to this. They have time and again given award winning performance as playback singers which have translated into awards for the actors lip synching those songs.

This calls for a celebration(3500 songs for Rafi & Lata). And a party like song, a Rafi solo, composed by Laxmikant –Pyarelal seems to be the song I came across( again) recently. While we were coming back from our native place last week, my husband found this MP-3 cd of songs in a shop. This song is the first one in that Audio CD. When I visited the blog after returning, I found this song Ho gori zulf ka bikhar jaana already posted. It got me thinking that may be some songs from the CD are not posed yet. So here is that song from ‘Farz’(1967), picturized on Jeetendra and Aruna Irani. The heroine in the film is Babita, but in this humdinger of a song, Aruna Irani is dancing along with the ‘Jumping jack’ Jeetendra, who is wearing his famous white pants and white shoes. I have not seen this movie but I have read that it is an action thriller. It was also a hit film and its songs were very popular.

Before I forget, the lyricist is Anand Bakshi. About Laxmikant-Pyarelal, it must be said that they made the most of Rafi’s no-interference policy per se MD’s and their compositions with Shankar-Jaikishan running a close second. He was willing to sing whatever was asked of him and he would go the extra mile to achieve the impossible, it seems to me. There are many examples which can be cited in this regard. Many of Laxmikant Pyarelal songs leave me amazed. If Rafi was not there to sing them, pray who would have even attempted them. Or may be MD’s wwould not have composed such songs, but for Rafi. It is one thing to sing a rhythm based song at a high pitch and another thing altogether to sing a melodious one and to maintain the smooth tenor of voice throughout the mukhda and each portion of the song. The songs of “Farz” also are an example to testify that the songs of the 60’s took too much out of Rafi as a singer.

Any way, if Rafi Sahab did not mind, who are we to mind or worry. It is all so much water under the bridge and a legacy to savour for time immemorial.

Song-Mast bahaaron ka main aashiq (Farz)(1967) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

koo koo
koo koo
mast bahaaron ka main aashiq
main jochaahe yaar karoon
chaahe gulon ke saaye se kheloon
chaahe kalise pyaar karoon
saara jahaan hai
mere liye
mere liye

main hoon woh deewaana
jis ke sab deewaane haan
main hoon woh deewaana
jis ke sab deewane haan
kis ko hai zaroorat
teri aye zamaane haan
meraa apna raasta
duniyaa se kya waasta
mere dil mein tamannaaon ki
duniyaa jawaan hai
mere liye
mere liye
koo koo
mast bahaaron ka main aashiq
main jo chaahe yaar karoon
chaahe gulon ke saaye se kheloon
chaahe kali se pyaar karoon
saara jahaan hai mere liye
mere liye

meri aankhon se zaraa
aankhen to milaa de haan
meri aankhon se zaraa
aankhen to milaa de haan
meri raahen rok le
nazren tu bichha de haan
tere sar ki hai qasam
main jo chalaa gayaa sanam
to yeh rut bhi chali jaayegi
yeh to yehaan hai
mere liye
mere liye
koo koo
mast bahaaron ka main aashiq
main jo chaahe yaar karoon
chaahe gulo nke saaye se kheloon
chaahe ka lise pyaar karoon
Saara jahaan hai
mere liye
mere liye

sab ko yeh bataa do
keh do har nazar se haan
sab ko yeh bataa do
keh do har nazar se haan
koyi bhi mere siwaa
guzre na idhar se haan
batlaa do jahaan ko
samjhaa do khizaan ko
aaye jaaye yehaan na koyi
yeh gulsitaan hai
mere liye
mere liye
koo koo
mast bahaaron ka main aashiq
main jo chaahe yaar karoon
chaahe gulon ke saaye se kheloon
chaahe kali se pyaar karoon
saara jahaan hai mere liye
mere liye
mere liye
mere liye
mere liye
mere liye

‘Farz’ may appear tacky when seen today, but when it released in 1967, it created a storm! It was a fast paced, action spy thriller! Never a dull moment really. A remake of the equally successful Tamil movie ‘Rahasiya Police 116’, ‘Farz’ forever changed Jeetendra’s image from a weepy hero into that of ‘Jumping Jack Jeetu’! ALL the songs are superb! Laxmikant-Pyarelal created such feet tapping numbers. The song that Jeetu sings on Babita’s birthday, “Bar bar din ye aye..” is a treat even today. Character actors Agha and Sajjan too had well etched roles in ‘Farz’. Kanchana, the South Indian actress played a bad girl who later helps the spy, Jeetu. ‘Farz’ will never bore you to this day…..

I agree with Mani Menon, I remember seeing this movie as a child and being totally captivated. I bit my nails down to the fingers during the action sequences, sure that poor Jeetu was going to DIE. The scene where he attempts to break the window of his prison and falls down in a shock because it is electrified remained etched in my mind. It was years later I saw the same scene in the bond film Dr.No and realised apna wala scene was a lift from that film 🙂

All the songs of the film are a treat. This one, Baar Baar din ye aaye and also Tumse O haseena kabhi mohabbat na maine karni thi.

Oh , how did i forgot to mentioned these two songs in the write up ? hota hai, bade bade blog mein aisi chhoti chhoti baaten ho jaati hain.

Ava Suri, most of the spy thrillers made in those times had chilling scenes that were ‘inspired’ by the James Bond movies. Of course, poor Sean Connery could never do something that all our ‘home made’ Bonds did. He couldn’t chase his ladies all over the scenery and sing catchy songs! Poor Sean must’ve gone green with envy! 😉

Maniji,
Aap shayad bhool gaye ho ki hamare “home made” Bonds were much younger than Sean Connery, who took the right decision of not to chase “any beauty” at that age. 😆

Khyati-ji, aap sahi kaha! Hamare ‘Bonds’ jawan zaroor the! Aur itne talented bhi the! Gana gana aate the, piano bajana aate the, aur time mila to, desh ki suraksh ke liye, dushmano ko mar mar kar ‘Lijjat pappad’ banana bhi aate the! 🙂
Khair, hamare jasoosi movies ‘timepass’ zaroor the!

Sean Connery was 32 yrs old when his first James Bond movie, Dr. No (1962) came out, and he did sing a few really catchy lines in his own voice- Under neath the mango tree – startling bikini clad Ursula Andress who was coming out of water in that famous beach scene. He had a very good voice.

I was pointing toward his movies of later days and his “Bond girls”. Yes, like you have said, he had a good voice.

Yes, bluefire-ji! Sean Connery sang ‘Underneath the mango tree me honey and me can watch for the moon…” But there was no 100 piece orchestra accompanying him! He sang it ‘yoo hi’. But you’re right! Ursula Andress did get startled. I was 17 years old when I, along with my classmates, had bunked class and gone for ‘Dr No’ in Bombay. And I must say, we were startled to see Ursula emerging from the sea like some Greek Goddess! 😉

Farz is indeed an action-packed movie – and worth a one-time watch at least. In an interview, Jeetu said that it was his desperate attempt to save his career, seeing as it was going nowhere. Farz also had a poor opening but then Jeetu, in his desperation, bought out tickets himself to try to prop it up. And once people began visiting the halls, it really caught on and became a big hit, changing Jeetu’s fortunes and image.

The songs of this movie are good timepass songs.

Thanks for this write-up, nahm ji.

Did Jeetendra too buy out the tickets , to put a houseful Board outside theatre, i thought that was Rajendra Kumar’s modus operandi ! Good business tactic.
