Roop tera mastaana

Posted on: January 13, 2013


Today (13 january 2013) is the 87th birth anniversary of Shakti Samanta (13 january 1926- 9 april 2009). Some of the most memorable Hindi movies in 1960s and 1970s were Shakti Films production. Movies like “Howrah Bridge” (1958), “China Town” (1961), “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964), “An Evening in Paris” (1967), “Kati Patang” (1970), “Amar Prem” (1971) were Shakti Samanta’s movies.

Someone who created the above mentioned out and out entertainers is assured of his place in the Hindi movies hall of fame. His claim in further strengthened when we realise that “Aradhana” (1969), one of the most influential Hindi movie was also a Shati Samanta Production.

From the list of abovementioneds movies, we see that Shakti Samanta collaborated with Ashok Kumar and then Shammi Kapoor in his earlie movies and then made movies with a newcomer called Rajesh Khanna.

I was one of the millions of Hindi movie and music fans who were swept off their feet by Rajesh Khanna tsunami that hit the moviewathers with big force in late 1960s. I was one of the unlucky ones who did not watch most of Rajesh Khanna movies during its first run. “Haathi Mere Saathi” and “Apna Desh” were the only Rajesh Khanna movies that I got to watch during its initial run.

Notwithstanding the fact that I missed watching mostr Rajesh Khanna movies during that time, it was impossible to miss listening to the music of Rajesh Khanna movies of those days and being influenced by it. Have nots like me were just as influenced by the songs of Rajesh Khanna movies as the lucky ones (one can count more 40 + regulars of this blog among them 🙂 ).

Many people are surprised that the songs of “Aradhana” (1969) have not been fully represented in the blog. Perhaps I am saving the music of late 1960s and early 1970s for the last. 🙂

Four songs from “Aradhana” (1969) have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth song from “Aradhana” (1969). This is an “important” song of the movie that helps take the story of the movie forward for reasons that are self explanatory for those who have watched the picturisation of this movie. 🙂

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. It is picturised as a sensuous background song while we find Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore finding themselkves in a situation that I have by now named as a “roop tera mastaana” situation in honour of this song. 🙂

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman (officially) but the popular impression is that the music of this song was actually composed by R D Burman who was deputing for his ailing father in this movie.

roop tera mastaanaa
pyaar mera deewaana
roop tera mastaanaa
pyaar mera deewaana
bhool koi humse na ho jaaye
roop tera mastaanaa

aaj nashe mein
saara jahaan hai
haay sharaabi mausam behkaaye
ae ae ae ae
roop tera mastaanaa

aankhon se aankhen
miltee hain aise
bechain hoke
toofaan mein jaise ae ae
aankhon se aankh
miltee hain aise
bechain hoke
toofaan mein jaise
mauj koi saahil se takraaye
ae ae ae ae
roop tera mastaanaa
pyaar mera deewaana
bhool koi humse na hojaye

rok raha hai
humko zamaana
door hi rehna
paas na aana
rok raha hai
humko zamaana
door he rehna
paas na aana
kaise magar koi dilko samjaaye
ae ae ae ae
roop tera mastaanaa
pyaar mera deewaana
bhool koi hum se na ho jaaye

रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
भूल कोई हमसे न हो जाये
रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
भूल कोई हमसे न हो जाये

रात नशीली
मस्त समां है
आज नशे में
सारा जहां है
रात नशीली
मस्त समां है
आज नशे में
सारा जहां है
हाय शराबी मौसम बहकाए ए ए ए ए
रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
भूल कोई हमसे न हो जाये

आँखों से आँखें
मिलती हैं जैसे
बेचैन हो के
तूफान में जैसे
आँखों से आँखें
मिलती हैं जैसे
बेचैन हो के
तूफान में जैसे
मौज कोई साहिल से टकराए ए ए ए ए
रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
भूल कोई हमसे न हो जाये

रोक रहा है
हम को ज़माना
दूर ही रहना
पास न आना
रोक रहा है
हम को ज़माना
दूर ही रहना
पास न आना
कैसे मगर कोई दिल को समझाये ए ए ए ए
रूप तेरा मस्ताना
प्यार मेरा दीवाना
भूल कोई हमसे न हो जाये

This song was picturised in a single shot. That is the unique thing about it. The actors had to get their angles and expressions right. And to be sure, they delivered beautifully. What a wonderful song this is, and so well presented.

Happy Birthday Shakti Samanta. He gave us some wonderful movies.

It is not true that the song was picturised in a single shot. Look at the close-ups using back projections and cl-ups of Sharmila in train windows and different long shots.

Bharat – Ava is right. You are referring to a different song! i.e. ‘Mere sapno ki rani’.

Atul ji,
You have stated in the article as under:

“….. Music is composed by S D Burman (officially) but the popular impression is that the music of this song was actually composed by R D Burman who was deputing for his ailing father in this movie”

All these years, I was also under the impression that this song was a handiwork of R D Burman. However, during the course of my recent studies of S D Burman’s music, I came across some interesting information, one of them being that R D Burman was not involved in the composition and orchestration of this song.

Kersi Lord, Manohari Singh and Homi Mullan who were associated with the music arrangements of this song, has stated in their separate interviews conducted sometime in 2012 (Video clips are available on YT) that R D Burman was not involved in making this song. In fact, Kersi Lord says that R D Burman was not even present during the recording of this song.

Kersi Lord also said that one day S D Burman called him along with Marutirao Keer and his music arrangers – Basu Chakraborty and Manohari Singh and explained the background of the song. He also told them that they have full freedom to arrange music for this song. They were so motivated by the freedom S D Burman gave to them that Kersi Lord used electrical amplifier to his Accordion for the first time. Manohari Singh played Saxophone, Basu played Cello, Marutirao Keer played percussion and Homi Mullan played secondary percussion.

This statement becomes more significant knowing that all these three musicians who gave interviews, were not only a part of the team of R D Burman, they were also his close friends.

Shakti Samant, in a separate interview in 2001 had also confirmed that all the songs were composed by S D Burman only. R D Burman as Assistant Music Director, executed S D Burman’s work. He also revealed that S D Burman was not ill during the making of ‘Aradhana’ (1969). But he fell ill after the completion of the film. This is corroborated by the fact that Shakti’s Samant entrusted the music direction of his next two films – ‘Kati Patang’ (1970) and ‘Amar Prem’ (1971) to R D Burman. However, for ‘Anuraag’ (1972), he reverted to S D Burman.

There is one more evidence to prove as to how much S D Burman was involved in composition of this song. It is a known fact that every year, S D Burman would visit Kolkata during Durga Pooja and stayed in his house in Kolkatta. His admirers would come to his house and he would have musical soirees almost every day.

There is an article written in Bangla by Brajesh Biswas, Tabla maestro (he had aalso trained R D Burman in Tabla) in a Bangla magazine sometime in 2001 .A part of his article was quoted in English in an article appeared in April 1, 2014 issue of CARAVAN magazine.This incidence was quoted by Brajesh Biswas from what S D Burman had said in one of his musical soirees held during the Durga Pooja of 1968. I quote:

Many years ago,(Sachin) Dev Burman says, he had gone to visit a man in a village (in Tripura). He stood outside the man’s house and called his name many times, but there was no response. Finally, the man came out and begged (Sachin) Dev Burman’s forgiveness. His son was getting married that day, he said, and he was helping him put on his wedding attire. The groom, (Sachin) Dev Burman shortly discovered, was a little boy. A young girl who was playing ekka–dokka—hopscotch—nearby began taunting the little boy-groom with a tune:

Kalkay jaabey shoshur bari
Ahladey khaaye gawragori
Dekhbo toray praanbhorey shundori

(She’ll go to her in-laws’ place tomorrow
Even the thought of that makes her happy
I’ll watch your beauty to my heart’s content)

For his “sex-song,” Burman decreased the speed of that tune, and Biswas remembers him saying, “I’ll ask Kishore [the playback singer Kishore Kumar] to sing it slowly. And to breathe heavily.” That’s how a folk song from a village in Tripura became the classic ‘Roop tera mastana’ in the film Aradhana (1969).

This makes clear that S D Burman had already decided as early as in September/October 1968 which folk tune he was going to use, how he was going to improvise to look like a romantic song and who would sing the song.

Please note that the Bangla folk song and ‘roop tera mastaana’ have the identical metres.
