Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There is an email from Avinash ji today morning wherein he has commented about the pace of posting in the current couple of weeks.  I quote – “. . . and this is where all my daily routine is getting affected, because the blog and the posts is my biggest motivation and new posts are not coming at earlier pace (leave alone my contributions 🙂 even others’ are very less, no doubt, as you had said our BOSSES must be having some other priorities#”.  So not exactly taken by any surprises, still it is heartening to note that the daily routine of our fellow travelers is entwined with the set of daily posts that appear on this blog. I know there have been similar discussions and comments in the past.  And the spirit continues. 🙂

Yes, the pace has been considerably slow in the past few days, with strike rate even dipping to a dot ball, on some days.  A dot ball has earlier been a rarity in the progression of this bandwagon, but in the past few days, I think we have seen more dot ball days than before.  Conflicting priorities have been piling up for both Atul ji and myself.  With vacations at schools and colleges, there is more preoccupation with family members, that takes time away from posting activities.  Speaking for myself, there is some housework that is in progress.  Such activities tend to disturb both the schedule, as well as the settings at home, and then it takes more time to settle down also.  In between, this dislocation sporadically impacted my net connectivity which is bothersome.  I hope this state of affairs will be over soon.  Many drafts and many requests are pending on my laptop, awaiting to be re-discovered.  Hoping to continue doing better. 🙂

In this process we have been missing a few anniversaries on the way.  Two gang members are very diligent in continuously pinging Atul ji and myself about the upcoming anniversaries. They are Prakash ji and Mahesh ji.  One continues to see regular reminders from them landing in the mailbox, for anniversaries that are coming up for the day as well as for 2 or 3 days in advance.  Both Atul ji and myself have not been able to justice to this string of reminders in the past few days.  Once again, hoping to continue doing better. 🙂

On the day before, there were two reminders from Mahesh ji.  The date was 9th June.  One of the anniversaries that Mahesh ji reminded is the passing away of the song writer Asad Bhopali.  The mention of this name brings to mind a bevy of beautiful musical memories, of the songs that have been penned by him.  Browsing through the list of songs on the blog, I find Asad Bhopali’s name appear for the first time at post number 13.  Way back on 31st July, 2009 Atul ji had posted the iconic “Dil Ka Soona Saaz Taraana Dhoondhega” from the 1973 film ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’.  As I pulled out the list of his songs on the blog, and scanned through it, I found scintillating gems like “Hansta Hua Noorani Chehra” (‘Paarasmani’, 1963), “Ae Mere Dil e Naadan, Tu Gham Se Na Ghabraana” (‘Tower House’, 1962), “Sau Baa Janam Lenge” (‘Ustaadon Ke Ustaad’, 1963), “Hum Tere Bin Jee Na Sakenge Sanam” (‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’, 1966), “Zara Sambhaalna Meri Jaan Apni Nigaahen” (‘Aaya Toofaan’, 1964), “Ajnabi Tum Jaane Pehchaane Se Lagte Ho” (‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain’, 1965), “Door Kahin Door Hamen Le Chalo Sanam” (‘Ek Sapera Ek Lutera’, 1965), “Naaz Thhaa Jis Pe Mere Seene Mein Wo Dil Hi Nahin” (‘Fareb’, 1968), “Raat Raat Bhar Jaag Jaag Kar Intezaar Karte Hain”, (‘Pyaar Ka Saagar’, 1961), “Ae Naazneen Ae Gulbadan” (‘Ek Nanhi Munni Ladki Thi’, 1970), “Main To Khadi Re Khadi Re” (‘Sab Ka Ustad’, 1967), “Dil Ki Baaten, Dil Hi Jaane” (‘Roop Tera Mastaana’, 1972), and many more.

I am a little surprised to see that just one song of the 1989 film ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’ is as yet showcased on our blog.  This is the film for which Asad Bhopali won the Filmfare award for the best lyricist. It is a sad irony that after a life full of struggle – a career spanning four decades, about 400 songs written for approximately 100 films – this recognition came to him at the very sunset of his life.  And even sadder is that just after the release of this film, he suffered from a paralytic stroke and was bedridden for the remaining months of his life.  He could not savor the news that the songs written by him had become hugely popular that year, nor was he able to go and receive the Filmfare award.  He passed away on 9th June, 1990 – equally consumed with sorrow and struggle in death, as he was intent with strife and distress while alive.

As was searching the net, I came across this very interesting piece about Asad Bhopali, posted online by our very own Satyajit ji Rajukar.

This memory tickler from way back in 1963, comes from the Dara Singh action film ‘Aawaara Abdullah’.  The song is duet dance performed by Helen and Parveen Chaudhry.  Dara Singh is a captive, restrained by thick and heavy chains, while the captor, Chandrashekhar sits on his throne, enjoying his wine and eyeing the dancing women.  Dara Singh was in the prime of his youth in that time, as is so visibly evident from the single shot that goes across his outstretched right arm, and across his chest, giving a full splendor view of his strapping biceps, and the burly chest.  He is clearly under instructions from the director that he will not dismantle his captivity hardware till the song comes to an end. Till then, he is just supposed to put up a strong muscular frown on his face, as he glares at Chandrashekhar enjoying the wine and the dance.  If looks could kill. . .

The music is by N Datta, and the singing voices are of Usha Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle. A lilting memory from the radio listening days. View, listen and enjoy.

Song – Dil Hai Zaalim Nigaahon Ka Maara (Aawaara Abdullah) (1963) Singer – Usha Mangehskar, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – N Datta
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

dil hai zaalim nigaahon ka maara
dil hai zaalim nigaahon ka maara
bechaara jiya jiya
jiya na jiya
kya bharosa hai bolo tumhaara
kya bharosa hai bolo tumhaara
sahaara diya diya
diya na diya

tum se mohabbat hum karte hain
dil ki tamanna dil karta hai
tum se mohabbat hum karte hain
dil ki tamanna dil karta hai
oooo ooooo ooo oo oo
door bhi rehna
mushkil hai ab
paas aate bhi jee darta hai
jaane duniya ne milna hamaara
jaane duniya ne milna hamaara
gawaara kiya kiya
kiya na kiya
dil hai zaalim nigaahon ka maara
bechaara jiya jiya
jiya na jiya

aaj to hum ko
tum jee bhar ke
apna nazaara kar lene do
aaj to hum ko
tum jee bhar ke
apna nazaara kar lene do
hoooo ooooo ooo oo oo
pal do pal hi
armaanon se
dil ka daaman bhar lene do
kya khabar naam tumne hamaara
kya khabar naam tumne hamaara
dobaara liya liya
liya na liya
dil hai zaalim nigaahon ka maara
bechaara jiya jiya
jiya na jiya

tum ho suraj
hum hain shabnam
tum sab kuchh ho
kuchh bhi nahin hum
tum ho suraj
hum hain shabnam
tum sab kuchh ho
kuchh bhi nahin hum
hoooo ooooo ooo oo oo
aaj tumhaare
saamne aa ke
jitni khushi hai
utna hi gham
phir khuda jaane hum ne tumhaara
phir khuda jaane hum ne tumhaara
nazaara kiya kiya
kiya na kiya
dil hai zaalim nigaahon ka maara
bechaara jiya jiya
jiya na jiya
kya bharosa hai bolo tumhaara
sahaara diya diya
diya na diya

दिल है ज़ालिम निगाहों का मारा
दिल है ज़ालिम निगाहों का मारा
बेचारा जिया जिया
जिया ना जिया
क्या भरोसा है बोलो तुम्हारा
क्या भरोसा है बोलो तुम्हारा
सहारा दिया दिया
दिया ना दिया

तुम से मोहब्बत हम करते हैं
दिल की तमन्ना दिल करता है
तुम से मोहब्बत हम करते हैं
दिल की तमन्ना दिल करता है
ओss ओsss ओss ओs ओ
दूर भी रहना
मुश्किल है अब
पास आते भी जी डरता है
जाने दुनिया ने मिलना हमारा
जाने दुनिया ने मिलना हमारा
गवारा किया किया
किया ना किया
दिल है ज़ालिम निगाहों का मारा
बेचारा जिया जिया
जिया ना जिया

आज तो हम को
तुम जी भर के
अपना नज़ारा कर लेने दो
आज तो हम को
तुम जी भर के
अपना नज़ारा कर लेने दो
होss ओsss ओss ओs ओ
पल दो पल ही
अरमानों से
दिल का दामन भर लेने दो
क्या खबर नाम तुमने हमारा
क्या खबर नाम तुमने हमारा
दोबारा लिया लिया
लिया ना लिया
दिल है ज़ालिम निगाहों का मारा
बेचारा जिया जिया
जिया ना जिया

तुम हो सूरज
हम हैं शबनम
तुम सब कुछ हो
कुछ भी नहीं हम
तुम हो सूरज
हम हैं शबनम
तुम सब कुछ हो
कुछ भी नहीं हम
होss ओsss ओss ओs ओ
आज तुम्हारे
सामने आ के
जितनी खुशी है
उतना है ग़म
फिर खुदा जाने हमने तुम्हारा
फिर खुदा जाने हमने तुम्हारा
नज़ारा किया किया
किया ना किया
दिल है ज़ालिम निगाहों का मारा
बेचारा जिया जिया
जिया ना जिया
क्या भरोसा है बोलो तुम्हारा
सहारा दिया दिया
दिया ना दिया

Nitin ji,

This composer was generally called as N.DATTA and not Datta Naik in film credits.
Secondly the above list is incomplete. He composed music for 55 films,starting with Marine Drive-55 to Chehre pe chehra-80. You have given only 45 names.
Filmography is usually given serially yearwise.
The years of few films are not correct,e.g. Dharmaputra is 1961 film,but you mentioned it as 1962 film.
Kindly check details for accuracy before posting ANYTHING,as it involves not only your name,but also the Blog’s name.
On hand we try to give genuine and authentic information,and on the other hand such incomplete or inaccurate information paints a different picture.
I hope you understand that this is an important point and will check every entry before posting here.
Thanks.

Nitin ji,
Film First Love was a 1961 film and NOT 1963 . Only Dattaram was the composer.
N.Datta was not involved in it.

Nitin ji,

This list is a mixture of Dattarm’s films and N.Datta’s films.
Tarzan comes to Delhi-65 was a Dattaram film.
N.Datta was not there at all.

Posting incomplete list of movies of an artist can be acceptable, but posting incorrect list of artist by combining movies of artists with similar names is unacceptable, especially when it has clearly been established in this blog that N Datta, Dattaram and Narayan Datta were three different individuals. Please avoid posting such incorrect and misleading lists cut and pasted from sites that are unable to differentiate among artists with similar sounding names.

I have used his real name for information purpose. Everybody knows N Datta.
I have given alphabetically for easy access
Why bring Narayan Dutt in the picture when I have not included any of movies
There is always a discripancy of 1-2 years(date of release) over various sites.
I have always maintain the lists are indicative and not exhaustive.
As far First Love is concerned it was Dattaram(which I have given credit to him) but one of song the site claims to be N Datta hence the mention; which could be I agree erroneous. .
Tarzan comes to Delhi is Dattaram’s music. But the site I referred to credits it to N Datta which caused the error. Only few days I had had rightfully attributed to Dattaram.
Regret inconvenience caused.

Nitin ji,

If everybody knows N.Datta,they also know his real name. His Filmography is on his filmy name and not on real name.
Narayan Datta’s name was to stress the point that even if names are similar,persons are different.
A film is credited to the year it is censored,unless there is hugh gap in censoring and release dates.
While giving data,generilsations are not acceptable,like a difference of 1-2 years etc.
You have never ever mentioned,while giving data that your lists are indicative and not exhaustive. Here again,as Atul ji says,incomplete list can be tolerated but not incorrect one.
You yourself are agreeing that you are copying data from sites,as it is given and pasting it here. This precisely is our point. The internet sites are generally not reliable and one should not blindly copy/paste them. What purpose is served ?
Collection of data,verification and its usage are painstaking processes. It is not as simple as cut/paste affair.
What is printed on your name determines your knowledge quality,so it is better,safer and proper to check every entry before posting it on your name.
Nitin ji,all this is for your good only and also to keep the Blog clean with as much correct info as possible.
You must write only what you can defend with proof.
-AD

Thanks

Thanks a lot Sudhir Kapoor Saab for going through my post on Asad Bhopali on my blog. He was truly an underrated lyricist.

Dear Satyajit ji

Yes, a lyricist who should have got more recognition.

Thanks for your well compiled and written blog post on Asad Bhopali.
