‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The second song to appear in this series is this wonderful lively ‘middle eastern’ type song (as mentioned in the article which is the basis of this series).

The composition of this song spells magic as we listen to it again and again.

Now, coming to the ‘genre’ of this song, I browse the categories available on the blog to find if any songs of similar types have been categorized separately.   But I could not find songs which have categorized as ‘middle eastern type’ or ‘Arabic’ type songs. Though, surely, our Hindi films are having many such songs.   In the category ‘desert’ songs also I do not find this type of song. (I would request Atul ji and our members to correct me and or add/list such type of songs).

However listening to this song, reminds me of another composition of Pancham Da, and sung by Asha Bhonsle and on screen performed by Zeenat Aman. This is ‘Khatooba Khatooba’ from the 1980 Film – ‘Alibaba aur Chaalis Chor’. In both the cases the composer-lyricists are the same – R.D.Burman- Anand Bakshi.

Today’s song is duet sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhonsle ji, which is lip synced on screen by Amitabh Bachchan and Zeenat Aman. Prem Chopra and others are also seen in the picturization of this song.

This is from the 1979 film ‘The Great Gambler’.  I remember I liked this movie very much then and I watched it two times on consecutive days. Though I do not remember how ‘hit’ or ‘flop’ it was on the box office. Songs of this movie are special for us ‘the fans of 70’s’ and create nostalgia, though this film came at the end of the decade i.e. in 1979.

Like me our dear Atul ji also has some special feelings about the songs from this film. He has already posted three songs from this film out of a total of five songs. The first song to appear was naturally the most popular – ‘Do Lafzon Ki Hai Dil Ki Kahaani’ (posted in March 2009), while the song ‘Pehle Pehle Pyaar Ki Mulaaqaatein’ followed it in May 2009.  The third one ‘Tum Kitne Din Baad Miley’  appeared after a gap of almost four years in 2013.  All the three songs posted so far have been presented with lovely ‘nostalgic’ write ups of Atul ji.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song.


Song – Raqqaasa Mera Naam, Ae Saahib Sab Ko Salaam (The Great Gambler) (1979) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

ho oo ooo ooooo
raqqaasa mera naam
ho raqqaasaa mera naam
ae sahib sabko salaam
raqqaasa mera naam
ae sahib sabko salaam
aap ki khidmat ke liye
main haazir hoon aaj ki shaam
raqqaasa mera naam
aye sahib sabko salaam

tauba tauba dekhe to
mere andaaz koyi
oo oo u u

tauba tauba dekhe to
mere andaaz koyi
phir sun ke dekhe apne
dil ki aawaaz koyi
maine chhedi ghazal
ab chhedega koyi
mahb e raqs hoon main dekho
mahb e deed hain log tamaam
ae sahib
u u u

aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa

taarif ke qaabil hai tu
ek haseen qaatil hai tu
ek nazar
dekh idhar
jaane jigar r r r r
dil chaahe bas ho jaaun
tere ishq mein main badnaam
raqqaasa tera naam
ae sahib sabko salaam
ho o
raqqaasaa tera naam
ae sahib sabko salaam
aap ki khidmat ke liye main
haazir hoon aaj ki sham
raqqaasa mera naam
ae sahib sabko salaam

तारीफ के काबिल है तू
इक हसीं कातिल है तू

दिल चाहे बस हो जाऊन
तेरे इश्क़ में मैं बदनाम
रक्कासा तेरा नाम
ए साहिब सबको सलाम

ए साहिब सबको सलाम
आप की खिदमत के लिए
मैं हाज़िर हूँ आज की शाम
रक्कासा मेरा नाम
ए साहिब सबको सलाम
