I had not watched any movies in movie halls between 1972 to 1978. When I joined college and with that got the freedom to do what I pleased, I went on a movie watching spree with a vengeance, as if to make up for the lost time. I would watch all the movies that were released in the city, except “low brow” stuff that got released in old and remotely located movie halls.

I had missed out watching classics like “Zanjeer”(1973), “Deewaar”(1975), “Sholay”(1975) etc during their first release. I watched them during their re runs. watching movies during re runs is not the same as watching them when they are hot off the press, so to say. Fortunately, I could watch “Don”(1978) during its first release and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie. Lots and lots of Amitabh Bachchan movies were getting released those days. Curiously enough, I did not like most of them except “Don”(1978), “The Great Gambler” (1978) and “Deshpremi”(1982), though I watched them all.

I did not have high opinions about other actors, but I would watch their movies too. It was during the end of the decade that “Sargam”(1979) was released. I was told by my Telugu speaking friend (there were quite a few of them there), that this movie was a remake of a Telugu movie Siri siri Muva. The songs of this movie were quite a rage on loudspeakers. I felt that the standard of HFM, going by the standards of the songs of this movie, was going down. 🙂

Today, I find that all songs of “Sargam”(1979) have remained in music lovers’ memory. Each and every one of the seven songs of “Sargam”(1979) became popular and remains so to this day.

I had watched the movie, and I found it so so. 🙂 I have subsequently just watched the picturisation of the songs, while noting down the lyrics of the songs.

Six out of seven songs of “Sargam”(1979) have been discussed in the blog. I went through the writeups of the previous si songs discussed nin the blog. It turns out from comments and posts that Ava had the same view about this movie viz. she too found it so so. But people like nahm and Peevesie’s mom were big fans of this movie and its songs. Nahm in fact discussed two of the songs during anniversaris of Rafi. Peevesie’s mom and Prakashchandra sent me the lyrics of two other songs of the movie.

I discussed one of the songs of the movie during the birth anniversary of Jaya Prada. It was then that I discovered that she is in the same age group as me and Ravi Shashtri going by her date of birth. It means she was 17 when “Sargam”(1979) was released and she was 14 when its Telugu original was released. She looked older than that, I opined. Peevesie’s mom was up in arms when I questioned her age but thankfully nahm supposted me stating that she too considered Jaya Prada older than 17 in the movie.

The one as yet undiscussed song from “Sargam”(1979) is an archtypical “remonstrting with the Almighty” song. The picturisation shows Jaya Prada geing married off against her wishes by her step mother Shashikala, with Shriram Laagoo playing the usual helpless ladki ka baap. The groom is the budding villain Shakti Kapoor. 🙂 Dhiraj Kumar, playing Shashikala’s son and Om Shivpuri playing the priest are also visible in the picturisation.

Rishi Kapoor’s lip syncing and dafli playing may have lasted for only some three minutes or so , but that is enough time for Almighty to get properly shamed and He sends timely help in the form of policemen who arrive at the temple just as the last stanza of the song gets over and Rishi Kapoor begins the play the dafli with a frenzy and the dafli is seen getting red and red from the blood that oozes out from the dafli player’s hand.

The policeman arrive and stop the marriage- in “ruko ye shaadi nahin ho sakti” ishtyle. 🙂 And it is from then onwards that the movie takes its due course what with Jaya Prada exiled and Rishi Kapoor accompanying her in his bid to find her a suitable groom. In typical “Chandamama” story style, Jaya Prada discovers in the last reel that Rishi kapoor himself is the proper groom for her. I in fact remember rfeading a story like this in Chandamama, so I was not surprised by the story of this movie.

With this seventh and final song from “Sargam”(1979), this movie now joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. With this, “Sargam”(1979) becomes the latest YIPPEED movie in the blog.

Song-Kahaan tera insaaf hai kahaan tera dastoor hai(Sargam)(1979) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

jaag aankhen khol
chup kyun hai bol
mere bhagwan
ye kya ho raha hai
mere bhagwan
ye kya ho raha hai
kahaan tera insaaf hai
kahaan tera dastoor hai
kahaan tera insaaf hai
kahaan tera dastoor hai
main to hoon majboor o bhagwan
main to hoon majboor o bhagwan
kya tu bhi majboor hai
kahaan tera insaaf hai
kahaan tera dastoor hai
kahaan tera insaaf hai
kahaan tera dastoor hai

sab kehte hain
toone har abla ki laaj bachaai
aaj hua kya tujhko
tere naam ki raam duhaai
aisa zulm hua to hogi
teri bhi ruswaai
teri bhi ruswaai
aankhon mein aansoo bhare hain
dil bhi gham se choor hai
kahaan tera insaaf hai
kahaan tera dastoor hai
main to hoon majboor o bhagwan
kya tu bhi majboor hai
kahaan tera insaaf hai
kahaan tera dastoor hai

kaisa atyaachaar hai
shaadi ya vyopaar hai
daulat mein sab zor hai
dharam bada kamzor hai
bikte hain sansaar mein
insaan bhi baazaar mein
duniya ki ye reet hai
bas paise ki jeet hai
aisa agar nahin hai to
sach bhagwaan kahin hai to
sach bhagwaan kahin hai to
mere saamne aaye wo
ye vishwaas dilaaye wo
mere saamne aaye wo
ye vishwaas dilaaye wo
mere saamne aaye wo
ye vishwaas dilaaye wo
mere saamne aaye wo
ye vishwaas dilaaye wo o o

Chandamama style is perfect way of describing this movie. The songs have stood the test of time, some of them, and sound quite melodious. Ramji ki Nikli Sawari, Mujhe mat roko, Dafliwale, Parbat ke us paar, Koyal boli, vagaira.

In the Coke-Pepsi (battle for supremacy between two peers) battle of Jaya and Sridevi, I liked Jaya better. Rishi has this ability of doing justice to any role he is given. I like the Chandamama like sequences between them. Baki ok si hi thi picture.

I do not get a chance to watch this movie in a ‘cinema-hall’. I watched on ‘doordarshan’ in 1990 when actually the ‘rath-yartra’ was on.
I like all the songs of this movie and I think one can watch and enjoy this movie.
Congratulations on covering all songs of “Sargam-1979” and its joining to the “list of movies-all songs covered” 🙂

i liked the post very much.
i noted that this movie has achieved YYIIPPEEEE!!! status because i saw Avinashji has been revisiting its songs. so it one more song away from my hands and this time it is by Atulj himself. but no problem.
Congratulations Atulji on covering all songs of “Sargam”
