Kisi ka dil lena ho

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

We had two opportunities to meet fellow Atulwaasis last year- one when guruji visited Bangalore and next when Avinashji visited. Both have given me lasting memories. I also liked Avinashji’s idea of getting Atul’s Banjaarey to sign an autograph with their thoughts to make up a Collage of Autographs. It was to show something about our interests or as Avinashji has said in his write up on the Gangout—Man Ki Baat. It has showed that most were in a philosophical mood and had unknowingly or unintentionally contributed to the thought (my own thinking too) “Zindagi kaisi hai paheli/ Kal kya hoga kisiko pata”- the very basis of a Banjaara’s (Nomad’s) life. One of the songs which I keep humming a lot also points to the same thought of Zindagi being a Paheli—and that song is Aage Bhi Jaane Na Tu, Peeche Bhi Jaane Na Tu, Jo Bhi Hain Bas Yehi Ek Pal Hai.

I am sure many are wondering where all this is leading. Well I realised that today 3rd March is the birth anniversary of the music director of “Waqt” the movie from which the above song is. We have many movies in our blog which have songs by Ravi also called Ravi Sharma and Bombay Ravi when he gave music in Malayalam movies. The Stats page of the blog shows that Ravi gave music to about 110 movies with a total of 819 songs of which there are 425 songs on the blog- slightly more than half of his work in Hindi movies.

He was born in Delhi and didn’t have any formal training in classical music. Whatever music he picked was from listening to his father sing bhajans. He taught himself to play harmonium and other classical instruments and worked as an electrician to support his family. In 1950 he decided to shift to Bombay and become a professional singer. Hemant Kumar discovered him in 1952 and hired him to sing backing vocals in Anand Math. His list of hit songs include “Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai’, “Babul ki duyaen leti ja”, “Doli chadh ke dulhan sasural chali” and “Mere Yaar Bana Ke Dulha” -eternal popular numbers associated with wedding celebrations. Then there are philosophical numbers like “Na Munh Chupa ke Jiyo” ched-chaad numbers like “Mat Jaiyyo Naukariya Chhod Ke” or love songs like “Jab chali thandi hawa jab uthi kaali ghataa” or the eternal love song (in my opinion) dripping in praise of one’s lover “chaudhvin kaa chaand ho, yaa aaftaab ho, jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam, laajwaab ho”.

On going through Ravi’s Filmography/ Discography we come cross “he neele gagan ke taale”; “aap aaye to khayaal-e-dil-e-naashaad aaya”; “jaagega insaan zamaana dekhega” – songs which gave a big boost to Mahendra Kapoor’s career. But then we cannot forget songs like “o neele parbaton ki dhaara”; “zindagi itteffaq hai”; “tora man darpan kehelaye”; “sun le pukaar aayi aaj tere dwaar leke aansuon ke dhaar’; and many more can be added to this list of Ravi’s association with Asha Bhonsle. Just when I was thinking if Ravi has worked his magic with the Mohd. Rafi I remembered of a movie called “Chinatown” which for some strange reason I always thought had music by OP Nayyar. Same is the case with Kishore Kumar; a song – hum toh mohabbat karega- which I thought had music by anybody else but Ravi turns out to be an absolute Ravi wonder. Can we forget “C.A.T cat cat mane billi” or “hum toh mohabat karega” or even “ye raatein ye mausam nadi ka kinaara” for that matter; all gems. So, what I am trying to point out here is the list of popular movies which have music is long and we will end up saying “Oh! This is also a Ravi song!?” whether we try to look for Manna Dey or Lata Mangeshkar or say Usha Mangeshkar under Ravi’s baton the result will be the same.

So today (3 march 2017), on his 91st birth anniversary, a not so popular song from a very popular album- Dilli Ka Thug- yes, this movie is still a long way off from having all its songs on the blog; as was pointed out by our Peevesie almost three years ago, when we had visited Sudhirji in Delhi. We had four out of the eight songs then; the situation is still the same. Today song is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and is sung a club song by Asha Bhonsle on Minu Mumtaz. We have Kishore Kumar (in disguise) and Nutan in the audience.

P.S. Don’t know why but this song reminds me of “babuji dheere chalna pyar mein zara sambhalna”. Can’t explain why?

Song-Kisi ka dil lena ho (Dilli Ka Thug)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

kisi ka
dil lena ho
ya kisi ko
dil dena ho
hanste jaao
gaate jaao
nazron ko takraate jaao
jalwa phir dekho
kisi ka
dil lena ho
ya kisi ko
dil dena ho
hanste jaao
gaate jaao
nazaron ko takraate jao
jalwa phir dekho
aeji jalwa phir dekho

usi ka nasha hai jo ki jhoomega jhumaayega
usi ka hai jaam jo ki badh ke uthhaayega
usi ka nasha hai jo ki jhoomega jhoomayega
usi ka hai jaam jo ki badh ke uthhaayega
darna na
ghabraana na
o baabu ji
sharmaana na
hanste jaao
gaate jaao
nazron ko takraate jaao
jalwa phir dekho
aeji jalwa phir dekho

aankhon se jafaayen aur dil mein wafaayen hain
ye to matwaale dilbar ki adaayen hain
aankhon se jafaayen aur dil mein wafaayen hain
ye to matwaale dilbar ki adaayen hain
roothe to
manaana na
aur jaayen to bulaana na
hanste jaao
gaate jaao
nazron ko takraate jaao
jalwa phir dekho
aeji jalwa phir dekho

khud toh pyaase maren
auron ko na peene den
yahi to hai duniya
na jiyen aur na jeene den
khud toh pyaase maren
auron ko na peene den
yahi to hai duniya
na jiyen aur na jeene den
logon ko
machalne do
koi jalta ho
toh jalne do
hanste jaao
gaate jaao
nazron ko takraate jaao
jalwa phir dekho
kisi ka
dil lena ho
ya kisi ko dil dena ho
hanste jaao
gaate jaao
nazron ko takraate jaao
jalwa phir dekho
aeji jalwa phir dekho
