Today (23 september 2014) is the death anniversary of Rajinder Krishan, a versatile and prolific lyricist of the golden era. He made his debut as a lyricist in late 1940s and he was supposedly past his prime by 1970s, but he continued to pen some superb songs even in 1970s. 1973 was a year when Rajinder Krishan wrote songs in “Banarasi Baabu”, “Jwaar Bhaata”, “Kahaani Kismat Ki” and “Blackmail” ! People loved the songs of these movies, majority of them (including myself) without knowing the details of these songs.

“Blackmail” (1973) was directed by Vijay Anand for V R Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Rakhi, Shatrughan Sinha, Madan Puri, Ifthikar, Kamal Kapoor, Kuljeet, Upendra Trivedi, Ranjita Thakur, Shefali, Jagdish Raj, Prem Sagar, Keshav Rana, Pushpa Pathak, Julien, Kishan Bahadur, Prakash, Kamal deep, Master avinash, Baby Yasmmeen etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed. and what songs they were ! Mile mile do badan khile khile do chaman (Blackmail) ,
Naina mere rang bhare sapne to sajaane lage (Blackmail) and the evergreen song Pal pal dil ke paas tum rahti ho(Blackmail)(1973).

Here is the fourth song from “Blackmail” (1973). This song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on Rakhi, with Shatrughan Sinha and Dharmendra also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. This is one song from this song that I had never heard before till today. 🙂

aayee thhi manzil
aake phir kyun kho gayee
ek nayee manzil se woh
sharmaa ke waapis ho gayee eeee eee
sharmaa ke waapis ho gayee
apni aakhon mein naye
sapne sajaa loon
kiss tarhaaa
waqt aane par badal jaataa hai
mausam jiss tarhaa aaaa

jo kabhi
sunee na thhi
main samajh gayee woh bhaashaa
aashaa main aashaa
mujhe kyaa huaa
hmmmm hmmmmm
hmmmm hmm hmmm hmmm
hmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmhmmm
aashaa main aashaaa
main aashaaa
hmmm hmm hmm

I think this is one of Vijay Anand`s flop movie, but the songs are picturised by him very beautifully.Vijay Anad presented Dharmendra and Rakhee very beautifully.
