‘Bandhe Haath-1973’ is a movie that I had watched in a ‘touring talkies’ in a ‘village fair’, 10/12 kms away from the colony-place where we were living at that time in 1974-75.

Since then, two things related with this movie have become embedded in my mind- one – the title song of the film ‘dekho ye mere bandhe haath’ sung by Kishore Kumar, and second is the name and face of O.P.Ralhan.

‘Bandhe Haath-1973’ was directed by O.P.Goyal for Ralhan Productions, Bombay. The cast of the film was Mumtaz, Amitabh Bachchan, O.P.Ralhan, Kumud Chhugani, Ajit, Anjana, Sardar Akhtar, Ram Mohan, Ranjit, Madan Puri, Gajanan Jagirdar, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Baldev Mehta, Pinchoo Kapoor, Kamaldeep, Moolchand, Sikandar, Ravikant, Ratan Gourang, Maqbool, Usha Amershi and Vanita Thakur. This film was passed by Censor Board on 18.01.1973.

All six songs in this movie are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D.Burman.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Today, on the occasion of R D Burman’s birth anniversary, I am presenting this ‘special song’ from the genius Pancham Da.

I was introduced to this song in 2007-08 through a audio cd of R D Burman songs given to me by a friend. At that time I thought this was a ‘Non-filmi’ Song because I had not heard it before and also because it was not famous or popular unlike other R D Burman songs.

When I joined this blog and started searching/sharing songs I found the video of this song and got to know that this was from ‘Bandhe Haath-1973’. After that I had shared this song, and this is one of my older contributions that are yet to be posted on the blog.

When our dear Satyajit ji started the series on Pancham da (Rahul Dev Burman – Forgotten Songs), I got a chance to remind him to post this song, but then he suggested that even I can do a write up and post it.

So now I have got this chance to introduce to all this ‘boat song’ which is modified and presented as a ‘cabaret song’!

Yes, that is the ‘specialty’ of this song!!

It shows us the ‘innovative-creative genius’ of Pancham Da.

Only a few months back (in December’2014) I got to listen to the audio of this song from the album ‘Legends-R.D.Burman’. Before the song, there is an interesting conversation between Gulzar Saab and Pancham Da, wherein Gulzar Saab admires his ‘experimental creativity’ and discusses how R D Burman could modernise folk tunes to suit contemporary film setting while still retaining the originality of the folk songs. Pancham Da in reply to this tells Gulzar Saab that he had learnt this from his father the great late S.D.Burman who always taught him to do ‘newer things/experiments’ in the field of music.

Let us now enjoy this lovely song sung by Asha Bhonsle which is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Mumtaz lip syncs this song onscreen in Asha Bhonsle’s voice and others playing fishermen lip sync in chorus.
