Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

(1971 – Solo)

Now, the maxim of proposes and disposes applies so well to the inception of this new series. Totally unplanned and unexpected for me that I am initiating it today. So here is how it transpired.

Some days back, Sadanand ji has posted a wonderful Rafi song “Zahe Kismat Teri Mehfil Se Jo Paighaam Aaya Hai”, a song from film ‘Chilman’ from 1949. In the accompanying article, he has presented a detailed analysis of Rafi Sb’s songs for the period 1944-50. It is such analyses that help to understand the career development of the artist and also to dispel some prevalent notions. As I was reading the article, the thought that came to my mind was about Rafi Sb’s performance in the last decade of his career, the changing 1970s. The idea formed into a list of songs from 1970s. In a matter of a few minutes and a few jottings, memories of wonderful songs kept coming to me. And the structure of the series exhibited itself to me. For each year of the decade, two songs – one solo and one duet. And I am spoilt for selection, for there are absolutely fabulous songs vying with each other to get on to this list.

But before I go into the discussion of Rafi Sb’s songs and his career graph in the 1970s, something else happened, that put in a very interesting diversion into my thought process. I was just browsing the anniversaries table, and found that today, i.e. 3rd September is the birth anniversary of music director Jaidev. Something clicked in my mind and looked that the list of songs I had jotted down for the Rafi Sb series for 1970s. And guess what, the very first song is by Jaidev. Things fell into place and this post materialized. The series belongs to the ‘Rafi Sb in Seventies’, but I defer the discussion on Rafi Sb himself to the next song in the series. This post brings together Jaidev and Rafi Sb, on this day, the birth anniversary of Jaidev.

From the pure gold dust of ‘Hum Dono’ (1961) to the very end, as one sifts through his enamoring creations, it is one beautiful wonder after another. Past the seventies, his work is confined either to the new wave cinema, or to non film music, or even to a throng of movies that did not see the light of the projector lamp. Going through his discography of the seventies and eighties is a journey through the divine. With Amitabh at his ascending best and Kishore the preferred background voice for him, it was Jaidev who would choose Yesudas to sing playback for Amitabh in the 1977 film ‘Alaap’ – “Koi Gaata Main So Jaata”– a creation without a peer.

After marvelous creations like ‘Gaman’ (1978), ‘Gharaonda’ (1977), ‘Ek Hans Ka Joda’ (1975), ‘Faasla’ (1974), ‘Dooriyaan’ (1979), ‘Prem Parbat’ (1973), ‘Bhaavna’ (1972), ‘Aalingan’ (1974), ‘Parinay’ (1974) etc. in the 1970s, he went on to create more wonderful music in the 1980s with films like ‘Jumbish’ (1986), ‘Ramnagri’ (1982), ‘Ek Naya Itihaas’ (1984), ‘Trikon Ka Chautha Kon’ (1986) and of course, ‘Ankahee’ (1985). Lost under the melody-less and sargam-less din of that decade, the songs of these films represent a lonely beacon in a stormy and directionless industry – a beacon that no one paid attention to.

Arguably the best songs rendered by Mukesh are the songs that finally got into a film, is when ‘Chandra Grahan’ was released in 1997. The film includes tracks that were recorded way back in 1973, and include the matchless Mukesh renderings of “Tujhko Yun Dekha Hai” and “Tumhi Ne Dil Ko Dil Samjha Nahin Hai”. And the long register of his unreleased films – ‘Ek Thaa Chander Ek Thi Sudha’ (based on Dharamveer Bharati’s novel ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’), ‘Mulaqaat’, ‘Aatish’ (starring Simi and Sohrab Modi), ‘Azaadi Pachees Baras Ki’, ‘Shaadi Kar Lo’, ‘Khunnas’, ‘Annda Didi’, ‘Shagun’, ‘Amar Jyoti’, ‘Shagun’ and more. Songs were recorded for all these films, but very few of them are really available anywhere. A large part is sitting in cans in some recording studios, or maybe lost forever.

The list is very long. The music of Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s ‘Madhushaala’, rendered by Manna Dey. Non film bhajans by Asha ji – “Phagun Ke Din Chaar”, “Aali Ri Mere Naina”, and so many more. Or the wondrous creation of Jaishankar Prasad sung by Asha – “Tumul Kolaahal Kaleh Mein Main Hriday Ki Baat Re Mann”. Or the novel interpretations of Ghalib – “Kabhi Neki Bhi Uske Dil Mein Gar Aa Jaaye Hai Mujhse” in Lata’s voice and “Shauk Har Rang Rakeeb e Sar o Samaan Niklaa”; of Jigar Moradabaadi – “Kabhi Shaakh o Sabz o Baagh”; of Faani Badaayuni – “Kaarvan Guzraa Kiya”; of Firaaq Gorakhpuri – “Hum Bhi Firaaq Insaan Thhe Aakhir Tarq e Mohabbat Se Kya Hota”.

What more to say? Maybe the idea that we need to do a series on the lost music of this matchless genius. As I am writing this post, I am also rummaging through the YouTube and picking out songs from his lesser known and unreleased films. And goodness, these are creations of such superb quality. It is so unfortunate that the creator of these fantastic pieces eventually left this world, literally homeless.

I revert to the list that I started from. This song is from the 1971 film ‘Ek Thi Reeta’. The words are from the pen of Sharsaar Sailaani, and the singing voice is Rafi Sb. A creation that seems so uncharacteristically alien to his style and strong footing in classical and folk milieus. But yes, believe it – this song is Jaidev.

Only the audio is available readily, but I would believe that this song is performed by Vinod Mehra on screen.

Listen and enjoy.


Song-Ye shor hai gali gali (Ek Thhi Reeta)(1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics

hazaaron aaften le kar
kisi but par shabaab aaya
jo aaya bhi to yoon aaya
ke zaalim be hisaab aaya
haaye

ye shor hai gali gali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali

nazar mein ik suroor hai
adaa nashe mein choor hai
ye keh rahi hain shokhiyaan
ke baat kuchh zuroor hai
nazar mein ik suroor hai
adaa nashe mein choor hai
ye keh rahi hain shokhiyaan
ke baat kuchh zuroor hai
yoon hi nahin
idhar udhar
machi hui ye
khalbaleee
shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali

wo mastiyaan bikherti
nazar nazar ko gherti
yahaan wahaan
kahaan kahaan
nigaahe naaz pherti
wo mastiyaan bikherti
nazar nazar ko gherti
yahaan wahaan
kahaan kahaan
nigaahe naaz pherti
dilon ko loot’ti hui
chali wo manchali chali
shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali

haseen hai
jawaan hai
kisi ke dil ki jaan hai
wo kaun khushnaseeb hai
ye jispe meharbaan hai
haseen hai
jawaan hai
kisi ke dil ki jaan hai
wo kaun khushnaseeb hai
ye jispe meharbaan hai
jidhar se wo
guzar gayi
mehak uthhi
kali kali
shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali
ye shor hai gali gali
ke wo jawaan ho chali

हज़ारों आफतें ले कर
किसी बुत्त पर शबाब आया
जो आया भी तो यूं आया
के ज़ालिम बेहिसाब आया
हाये

ये शोर है गली गली
ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली
ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली
ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली

नज़र में इक सुरूर है
अदा नशे में चूर है
ये कह रही हैं शोखियाँ
के बात कुछ ज़ुरूर है
नज़र में इक सुरूर है
अदा नशे में चूर है
ये कह रही हैं शोखियाँ
के बात कुछ ज़ुरूर है
यूं ही नहीं
इधर उधर
मची हुई ये
खलबली
शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली
ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली

वो मस्तियाँ बिखेरती
नज़र नज़र को घेरती
यहाँ वहाँ
कहाँ कहाँ
निगाहे नाज़ फेरती
वो मस्तियाँ बिखेरती
नज़र नज़र को घेरती
यहाँ वहाँ
कहाँ कहाँ
निगाहे नाज़ फेरती
दिलों को लूटती हुई
चली वो मनचली चली
शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली
ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली

हसीन है
जवान है
किसी के दिल की जान है
वो कौन खुशनसीब है
ये जिसपे मेहरबान है
हसीन है
जवान है
किसी के दिल की जान है
वो कौन खुशनसीब है
ये जिसपे मेहरबान है
जिधर से वो
गुज़र गई
महक उठी
कली कली
शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली
ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली

ये शोर है गली गली
के वो जवान हो चली

Sudhirji,
A new series of Rafi…special songs of 70s. I am really looking forward for this unplanned and unexpected series of yours. In MOST OF THE CASES 😉 unplanned series gives you tremendous amount of unexpected joy, I strongly believe. 🙂
A great tribute to Jaidevji by remembering him on his birth anniversary. I am sure Bharatbhai, a great fan of Jaidevji will love it.
Thanks
Khyati

Sudhir-ji,
Thanks for remembering my most favorite Md Jaidev-ji on his B-day.

You have mentioned “the novel interpretations of Ghalib – “Kabhi Neki Bhi Uske Dil Mein Gar Aa Jaaye Hai Mujhse” in Lata’s voice” is not a fact, as the song is sung by inimitable Asha-ji.

Your another comment “What more to say? Maybe the idea that we need to do a series on the lost music of this matchless genius.” makes me wonder that you might not have noticed that (by the way, trying not not to indulge in self-praise,) I am already contributing on this Blog a series called ‘Genius of Jaidev’ from January 24th and the last (14th gem) appeared on August 20th. I wish to conclude the series with few more gems. (Hai ichchha baliyasi)
I request you to please look at some of them and will very much appreciate your expert’s comments about them on the blog or personally to me via e-mail (Atul-ji has my e-mail address)

Bharat ji,

I have to apologize for this delay in responding to your message (almost 3 weeks now). And I must say that I am remiss, at having mentioned about a series on Jaidev, while I am familiar with the ‘Genius of Jaidev’ series that you are currently posting. As I mentioned in the post, the “Rafi Sb in Seventies” series got going at a short notice and the connection to Jaidev’s anniversary changed a few things in this post,in a short time. As I started to build this post as a Jaidev tribute, I started to scan the songs from obsucre and unreleased films in the 70s and 80s. I got so thrilled at hearing some samples, and that sentiment got expressed as a desire for a new series on Jaidev. What I meant was to showcase his unheard and underappreicated work from 1970s and 80s.

Regarding the Ghalib ghazal, I seem to have mixed it up with Lata’s rendition, composed by Hridyanath Mangeshkar, which I have on a cassette of ghazal selections.

Bharat ji,
I am not sure I merit an expert status. I am just a listener of music, a listene with passion, maybe. I am following your series on the Raagmaalas and also the Jaidev songs, with great interest. I sincerely appreciate your grasp and knowledge of the subject. I can state my appreciation, but I am not sure I can present ‘expert’ comments. But I will say that I do follow your posts with sincere interest.

I may not be very regular and active in the comments space, due to other time constraints and priorities. I will reiterate that my lack of comments not be viewed as lack of interest. Given time, I do scan all posts, because it is a matter of passionate interest, and also a matter of compilation of data on this blog, for which I am collaborating with Atul ji.

Continue to look forward to your posts. And yes, there is another aspect that I do want to check with you offline on email, relating to your work in the industry. I will write to you separately and discuss.

Cheers and best regards

Sudhir
