Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 25
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

If one were to pick style as the defining criterion, and pick the one male lead actor who best symbolizes this measure, the first name that will come to mind is Feroze Khan.

Remembering Feroze Khan on the anniversary of his birth today – 25th September.

He is the one icon in the industry who never let others forget his enthnicity.  He took pride in being a ‘Pathaan’, and made sure that others would remember it too.  Early in his career, the epithet applied to him was – Clint Eastwood of India.  He played that role in the 1975 film ‘Khotey Sikkey’ – a swashbuckling cowboy, with a flowing black cape, riding a horse, making appearances and departing, through a screen of fog and smoke.

But personally, I do not relish such epithets.  Feroze Khan does not need a foreign name to hang his cloak on.  Feroze Khan is Feroze Khan, and he has made his place in the industry, whether one likens him with a foreign actor or not.

One of the few actors who started their careers in the B/C grade cinema or in smaller side roles, but then soon broke into A grade and went on to play anchor roles in defining films.  Making his debut as a second lead in the 1959 film ‘Didi’, he went on to ‘Oonche Log’ in 1965 where he was teamed with two stalwart actors, Ashok Kumar and Rajkumar.  1965 also saw his breakthrough into A grade cinema with the release of ‘Aarzoo’ in which Rajendra Kumar and Sadhna played the lead roles.  These two films got him critical acclaim and also attention from the audiences.

His career continues at two levels after this.  He continues to play to lower stall with films like ‘Teesra Kaun’ (1965), ‘Wo Koi Aur Hoga’ (1967) and ‘Anjaan Hai Koi’ (1969) and more.  Alongside, he is also making his presence felt in the A grade with appearances in films like ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967), ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969) and ‘Safar’ (1970).  On the way, he also earned the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor award for his impressive high key performance in ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969).

At the turn of this decade he set up FK International, his own production house and turned a producer director with the 1971 film ‘Apraadh’.  He went on to produce some memorable box office hits as in ‘Dharmaatma’ (1975), ‘Qurbaani’ (1980) and ‘Jaanbaaz’ (1986).

Today’s song is a memory tickler from way back in 1966. The film is ‘Main Wohi Hoon’.  The beautiful words are crafted by Asad Bhopali, and the music is from the mind of Usha Khanna.  On screen, Feroze Khan is serenading and wooing a willing Kum Kum.  Listen to the lovely words, softly rendered by the inimitable voice of Rafi Sb.  Enjoy.

Song – Aankhon Pe Palkon Ke Ghoonghat (Main Wohi Hoon) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

aankhon pe palkon ke ghoonghat
gaalon pe zulfon ka pehraa
subhaan allaah
subhaan allaah
aap ka chehra
aankhon pe palkon ke ghoonghat
gaalon pe zulfon ka pehraa
subhaan allaah
subhaan allaah
aap ka chehra
aankhon pe palkon ke ghoonghat

ik reshmi dupatta
baahon pe jhoomta hai
halka sa ik tabassum
hothon ko choomta hai
hothon ko choomta hai
neechi nazar mein chhupa hai
jaise koi raaz gehraa
subhaan allaah
subhaan allaah
aap ka chehra
aankhon pe palkon ke ghoonghat

naazuk libaas mein yun
naazuk badan chhupa hai
shabnam ke perhan mein
jaise chaman chhupa hai
jaise chaman chhupa hai
ya chaand se aasman se
lipta hai baadal sunehraa
subhaan allaah
subhaan allaah
aap ka chehra
aankhon pe palkon ke ghoonghat

jazbaat ki mehak se
saansen basi huin hain
baalon mein motiyon ki
kaliyaan chuni huin hain
kaliyaan chuni huin hain
ya raat baandhe huye hai
sar se sitaaron ka sehra
subhaan allaah
subhaan allaah
aap ka chehra

aankhon pe palkon ke ghoonghat
gaalon pe zulfon ka pehraa
subhaan allaah
subhaan allaah
aap ka chehra

आँखों पे पलकों के घूँघट
गालों पे ज़ुल्फों का पहरा
सुभान अल्लाह
सुभान अल्लाह
आप का चेहरा
आँखों पे पलकों के घूँघट
गालों पे ज़ुल्फों का पहरा
सुभान अल्लाह
सुभान अल्लाह
आप का चेहरा
आँखों पे पलकों के घूँघट

इक रेशमी दुपट्टा
बाहों पे झूमता है
हल्का सा इक तबस्सुम
होठों को चूमता है
होठों को चूमता है
नीची नज़र में छुपा है
जैसे कोई राज़ गहरा
सुभान अल्लाह
सुभान अल्लाह
आप का चेहरा
आँखों पे पलकों के घूँघट

नाज़ुक लिबास में यूं
नाज़ुक बदन छुपा है
शबनम के पैरहन में
जैसे चमन छुपा है
जैसे चमन छुपा है
या चाँद से आसमान पर
लिपटा है बादल सुनहरा
सुभान अल्लाह
सुभान अल्लाह
आप का चेहरा
आँखों पे पलकों के घूँघट

जज़्बात की महक से
सांसें बसी हुईं हैं
बालों में मोतियों की
कलियाँ चुनी हुईं हैं
कलियाँ चुनी हुईं हैं
या रात बांधे हुये है
सर से सितारों का सेहरा
सुभान अल्लाह
सुभान अल्लाह
आप का चेहरा

आँखों पे पलकों के घूँघट
गालों पे ज़ुल्फों का पहरा
सुभान अल्लाह
सुभान अल्लाह
आप का चेहरा

How can we forget his love look in Jaag dil e diwana…… Surprisingly his first film that I watched of course on Doordarshan was Bahurani-63 in which he played younger step brother of Guru Dutt.
Thanks Sudhirbhai for the post and song.
