# Superstar Child Artist – Jr.Mehmood # Rafi Sings for Jr.Mehmood # 1
—————————————————————————
When I initially took up this song for sharing, I only intended to share the lyrics. But after listening to this song, the subject of the song prompted me to share my own experience with it which is ‘Lottery’…

Here is what I wish to share:

Many of us may have sometimes tried purchasing a ‘lottery’ ticket (or gambling or ‘ghodon par paise lagaana… something like that), to try ‘luck’ ‘at least once’!
In my formative years I knew about a few such things where one could try his luck for the ‘riches’. There was ‘lottery’, there was ‘matka’ (worli matka, kalian) or ‘satta’ etc etc.

In my home state Maharashtra, state sponsored lotteries and other lotteries flourished and I saw many people purchasing lottery ticket to try their luck.

I too had tried my luck at lotteries till I was in 12th and thereafter I gave it up realizing that this was not ‘my game’. I had already taken up a job and I realised that this was a better way to get money for me instead of resorting to ‘gamble’ and hoping for a ‘Jackpot’.

Still, when ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ came up for the first time, my friends and well wishers suggested that I should try my hand in it since they thought that my GK was at par with the KBC contestants who were reaching the hot seat and winning ‘respectable’ prizes. (Sitting at home the questions always seems to be easier to us 🙂 )

I fell in line with my well wishers’ suggestions and tried for the ‘KBC’. I easily cleared the first round and then eagerly waited for the call in second round. I took leave from the office for the whole day waiting for the call, but to no avail.

I repeated the same procedure once more with same futile result and then realised that this too was ‘not my game’, I reverted back to my earlier ‘philosophy’ of ‘juaa apni kismat mein nahin …’. I gave up and I have not given it a try since then, even after the passage of several seasons and despite the promptings from my family members and friends.

Coming back to the song, when I checked the details of the song and saw that it was sung by Rafi Saab, I looked at the starcast of this movie. It was almost 38-39 years ago that I had watched this movie and I do not remember much of the movie now except one song ‘jalaa do jaalaa do aag lagaa do’ (a song that I have already shared to Atul ji earlier).

I was expecting to find names like Mehmood, Rajendranath etc etc in the cast, but those names were not there. Finally when the video of this song began and Mukri apperaed on the screen, I thought that this song was performed by him on the screen. But soon I realised that it was Jr.Mehmood who was lip syncing and performing in this song.

Jr Mehmood lip syncing and that too in a voice none other than Rafi Saab’s ! That reminded me that he had also lip synced a song in “Do Raaste”. In this song, viz. apni apni biwi pe sabko badaa guroor hai Jr.Mehmood gets to lip sync in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice.

Seeing that ‘Rivaaz’ was a film of 1972, one could say that Jr.Mehmood had grown up suffiently in three years time, so much so that he was getting to lip sync in a male voice by this time !

I had never gone through the details of the ‘biography’ of Jr.Mehmood in the past. The only thing I remembered about him was his roles in a few films in our growing years. He was not much successful in films as a grown up adult.

Nevertheless, we all love him for the roles that he played those days and I think he was the Superstar Child Artist and Performer of those days. (He also worked with Rajesh Khanna in many films. 🙂 )
He must be the most lovable child artist in the industry of those days.

So I was surprised on reading in Wikipedia that he had acted in over 265 films (in 7 different languages) and that he had produced and directed 6 Marathi movies.

Going through this list of films and this song, a question formed in my mind– How many songs had Rafi Saab sung for him ?

I searched and found one more such song.

Then I found a link on YT that gave his biography. It is here.

Then I kept searching for more. I came across some useful and many useless links during my searches.

I also realised that his birthday date is not mentioned anywhere online, including in wikipedia !

Well, was it possible to know more about Jr.Mehmood from the man himself?
Was it possible to talk to him and find answers to these questions?

Information collected this way would be authentic, exciting and interesting too!!

28 january 2015 was a big day for me and it was like hitting a ‘jackpot’- perhaps for the first time in my life..

I got to speak to Junior Mehmood on that day ! I greeted him, gave him my well wishes, and told him the purpose of my calling to him.

I briefly told him about our blog and about this article that I wished to do on him.

He too congratulated us on covering more than 10 K songs in the blog. He too extended his best wishes to us.

I asked him about his ‘birthday’ and came to know that it falls in the second half of the year (that will be disclosed at the appropriate occasion.

It was quite remarkable to notice how polite he was in his talk. He gave me a patient hearing while I was talking to him excitedly. After all, I was talking to a ‘film personality’ (and that too after so many years, nearly two decades after I briefly met with Gulzar Saab in 1996 at Kota-Rajasthan).

He was equally enthusiastic in telling me about all the songs that Rafi Saab had sung for him. I was trying to remember everything correctly as he was reeling them off.

He talked about these songs with great passion. He remembers his films and their details very well.

Thanking him for the time given to me, I took some liberty and grab this opportunity to ask him;

‘Main agar kabhi Mumbai aaun, to app hamen milne ka mauka denge?

Most Welcome! Aap zaroor aayiye! He replied back.

More about him and the songs he performed in films (as ‘child artist’) in subsequent posts.

We have four songs in this series. And additionally we would take other songs sung by other artist (I think that female singers would be mainly associated in these songs ) to conclude this series in November on his birthday.

Today let us enjoy this wonderful song from the 1972 film ‘Rivaaz’. .

Interestingly wiki does not mention this film in the filmography of Jr.Mehmood)

Here is the brief information on this film that Atul ji has mentioned while posting the first song from this movie.

“Rivaaj” (1972) was produced by K C Bokadia and directed by T Prakash Rao. The movie had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Pandhari Bhai, Mukri, Gauri, Jayshree T, Raj Kishore, Zeb Rehman, Mehmood Junior etc in it.

Lyrics

Lagey koi lottery
Koi jackpot lagey ae

Apni bhi kismat ki naav
Kisi ghaat lagey
Lagey koi lottery
Koi jackpot lagey
Apni bhi kismat ki naav
Kisi ghaat lagey
Lagey koi lottery

Ghodon ki chaal se jaage taqdeer ye
Kaaghaz ki lottery badle tasweer ye
Kismat jo saath ho
Har baazi haath ho
Saare dukh dard ki toote zanjeer ye
Ghodon ki chaal se jaage taqdeer ye
Kaaghaz ki lottery badle tasweer ye
Kismat jo saath ho
Har baazi haath ho
Saare dukh dard ki toote zanjeer ye
Lagey
O lagey
Lagey koi lottery
Koi jackpot lagey
Apni bhi kismat ki naav
Kisi ghaat lagey
Lagey koi lottery ee
A ha aa

Roop ki koi pari
Ho basi nigaahon mein
Saath saath jo chale
Baahen daale baahon mein
Note hon hare hare
Zeb mein bhare bhare
Har khushi khareed len
Zindagi ki raahon mein
Haay ae
Roop ki koi pari
Ho basi nigaahon mein
Saath saath jo chale
Baahen daale baahon mein
Note hon hare hare
Zeb mein bhare bhare
Har khushi khareed len
Zindagi ki raahon mein

Lagey
O lagey
Lagey koi lottery
Koi jackpot lagey
Apni bhi kismat ki naav
Kisi ghaat lagey
Lagey koi lottery ee

Partiyon ki dhoom ho
Hotelon mein dance ho
Zindagi ho aish ki
Pyaar ho romance ho
Har adaa mein force ho
Har jagah pe source ho
Hamen mile Leaderi
Aisa koi chance ho
Haan

Partiyon ki dhoom ho
Hotelon mein dance ho
Zindagi ho aish ki
Pyaar ho romance ho

Har jagah pe source ho
Hamen mile Leaderi
Aisa koi chance ho

Lagey
Ho lagey
Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey
Apni bhi kismat ki naav
Kisi ghaat lagey
Lagey koi lottery
Koi jackpot lagey
Apni bhi kismat ki naav

Lagey koi lottery ee

Lag gayi
Lag gayi
O lottery lag gayi
A ha ha ho ghabraao mat o

घोड़ों की चाल से जागे तकदीर ये
कागज़ की लाटरी बदले तस्वीर ये
किस्मत जो साथ हो
हर बाज़ी हाथ हो
सारे दुःख दर्द की टूटे ज़ंजीर ये
घोड़ों की चाल से जागे तकदीर ये
कागज़ की लाटरी बदले तस्वीर ये
किस्मत जो साथ हो
हर बाज़ी हाथ हो
सारे दुःख दर्द की टूटे ज़ंजीर ये

बाहें डाले बाहों में
नोट हों हरे हरे
जेब में भरे भरे
हर खुशी खरीद लें ए
जिंदगी की राहों में
हाय ए
रूप की कोई परी
हो बसी निगाहों में
साथ साथ जो चले
बाहें डाले बाहों में
नोट हों हरे हरे
जेब में भरे भरे
हर खुशी खरीद लें ए
जिंदगी की राहों में

ओ लगे
लगे कोई लाटरी
कोई जैकपोट लगे
अपनी भी किस्मत की नाव

लगे कोई लाटरी ई

पार्टियों की धूम हो
होटलों में डांस हो
जिंदगी हो ऐश कि
प्यार हो रोमांस हो
हर अदा में फोर्स हो
हर जगह पे सोर्स हो
हमें मिले लीडरी
ऐसा कोई चांस हो
हाँ
पार्टियों की धूम हो
होटलों में डांस हो
जिंदगी हो ऐश कि
प्यार हो रोमांस हो
हर अदा में फोर्स हो
हर जगह पे सोर्स हो
हमें मिले लीडरी
ऐसा कोई चांस हो
लगे
हो लगे
लगे कोई लाटरी
कोई जैकपोट लगे
अपनी भी किस्मत की नाव
किसी घाट लगे

कोई जैकपोट लगे
अपनी भी किस्मत की नाव
किसी घाट लगे
लगे कोई लाटरी ई

Avinash ji,

My pleasure Sir !!
thanks for the appreciation.

lovely song Avinashji.
and the locations where the song is filmed took me down memory lane— Opening at Cafe Naaz in Kamla Nehru Park (hope they have not changed the name), Chowpatty, Air India building at Nariman Point, Marine Drive, Taj at Gateway Of India. oh just made me realise its been years since i went to these places. probably the last tym i went here was when my children were in school, almost 10-12 years. and all these are my favourite spots in Mumbai. thank u Avinashji for this Mumbai Darshan

@ Peevesie’s Mom ji – thanks !!
though I have been to Mumbai few times, it happened to be only for a short time or a journey break, hence have not visited all the tourist/famous locations, so I cannot say much about that ‘darshan’ 🙂

Avinash ji

Beautiful narration and flow of words.
I think you need to write much more

Many Thanks .

Thank you Mahesh ji !!
‘To write more posts’ is my this year’s resolution, and I shall try my best for it. Hope you will like them and keep posting your feedback on them.

Avinash,
Congrats for having talked to Jr Mehmood. Till recently I used to watch him daily in TV serial: Pyar Ka Dard; he has put on lot of weight. Thanks for ferretting out the requisite info.

Atulji, Aapke KBC (tendency in a man to gamble) ke CANDID thoughts ko kya kahe? Aao ka yeh blog is EVERGREEN Atulji. Koi taarif kare nahin kare … Oooooooooooofffff!
