When I looked at the filmography of Madan Mohan, I found that “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) is one of the few movies that is not yet represented in the blog. The movie was directed by Jagdev Bhambhri for Hema Pictures, Bombay. This social movie had Hema Malini, Feroz Khan, Neetu Singh, Jagdeep, Abhi Bhattacharya, Afzal Khan, Baby Madhu Malini, Hakeem, Surendra Khosla, Hitler, Dev Sharma, Moolchand, and Helen, with special roles by Bindu, Padma Khanna, Aparna Chaudhary, Dev Kumar, Fariyal, Laxmi Chhaaya, Jayshree T, Dheeraj, Tabrez, Gopal Sahgal, Sudarshan Sharma, Nandu, Jagdev Bhambhri etc in it.

This “social” movie had five songs in it. It is a popular misconception for people, including me that the song sharaafat chhod di maine is from this movie. No, this song is from “Sharaafat”(1970).

“Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) had five songs in it. Four of the songs are Asha Bhonsle solos and one song is a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet.

Here is the first song from “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Verma Malik is the lyricist. music is composed by Madan Mohan.

There are several observations one can make about this song. First is that Madan Mohan was clearly under instructions to create a tune that sounded like RD Burman. Second observation is that this song is a Helen song but with some difference. Helen does give a cabaret dance performance, but she is dressed not like a cabaret dancer but like how an apsara out on a mission to break the “tapasya” of a tapaswi muni would dress. Third observation is that the person incharge of getting this song picturised was quite a confused soul. He did not have much clue what to do and he succeeded in totally messing up the picturisation of this song. Most Helen songs are supposed to be watched, but here is a Helen song picturisation that tries to show almost every actor acting in the movie instead of concentrating on the main task at hand viz choreography of this song and thus wasting Helen in this song.

The movie, it goes without saying, deservedly failed at the box office. Nevertheless, the movie has music by Madan Mohan so this movie needs to find representation in the blog. Better late than never. so here is this Helen song from “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976). With this song, “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam (Sharafat Chhod Di Maine)(1976) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

aaj ki mehfil
aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil
aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
aaj paimaana aur ye jaam
aaj paimaana aur ye jaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

shaab e hayaat laaun
jannat ka khwaab laaun
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

saanson ki garmi de doon
dhadkan ki thhaap de doon
o o
saanson ki garmi de doon
dhadkan ki thaap de doon
aankhon ka pyaar de doon
dil ka milaap de doon
pyaar ke pyaale mein ye bhara hai
paigaam
paigaam
paigaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

honthon pe mere dilbar tera hi naam aaye
o o
honthon pe mere dilbar tera hi naam aaye
ji chaahta hai aisi har roz shaam aaye
ab to hai zindagi bas yahi kaam
kaam
ho kaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
