ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 9
———————————————————————

My last post on our blog has been sometime back. I have been meaning to write about this song which has a couple of rare occurrences in the Hindi Film and Music world and was waiting for an opportune moment.

Recently, I have been fighting my own battles on my health front, having been hospitalised for surgical and advanced interventional pain management procedures, more than a couple of times in the last one year. I have diabetes, which is under control, however it has caused neuropathy in both my feet causing severe pain with tingling and burning sensations. I would like to take this opportunity to create awareness amongst all the readers of this blog that diabetes can be very dangerous and draining and that one should take care of their feet. One’s feet bear the entire weight of one’s body but always fail to get the attention and good care, as with other parts of the body.

Well, coming back to today’s post. Late last month, we, the regular (and irregular) contributors of this blog were told by our beloved SudhirJi, that the blog was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its creation and that song posts were expected from all the contributors. However, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t stick up to the deadline of sending in our contributions. However, Sudhir Ji would not relent and sent me another request to send in my post. This made me very embarrassed and I made a promise to myself that come what may, I will write my post and send it today, three days after my second extended deadline.

My association with this blog actually started around two years after I started my Facebook group – Rare Hindi Film Songs in 2010. In searching for old and rare songs to post, I would often visit the blog and later I came to know that even Atul Ji, the creator of this blog was a member and a regular visitor of my group. However, it took me almost 4 years to write my first post – for the song “Chup Chup Chup Kyon Baithe Ho” – and send it to Atul Ji for moderation and posting. Since then, I have been sending in my posts in bursts, start and stop.

Till date I have just posted about 20 odd songs, but I feel so much drawn to the Atulites group that I feel I have come to my home group amongst these various people across the world, who share similar passion and views. In particular, Avinash Ji and Sudhir Ji seem to like my kind of songs from movies of the 70s and early eighties, not that others are not encouraging.

My heartiest congratulations to Atul Ji, ASAD, Atulites and all the people who love HFM, on the 10th anniversary of this endeavour !!!

Now coming to today’s song. As I have mentioned above, this is a special song for me as it has a few rare characteristics associated with it, in the HFM world and also since it is quite a rare song. It is from the Pran, Navin Nischol and Rekha starrer ‘Dharma’ released in 1973. Two other songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog. For those who haven’t seen the movie or have forgotten it, the plot summary can be read here on IMDB.

Now, coming to this song with ‘Two Rare Occurrences’ for a Hindi movie!

It is an almost eight minute long song, starting with a straight cut and paste of the song “Aur Mera Naam Hai Jameela” sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the 1967 film ‘Night in London’ (composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and penned by Anand Bakshi). In both the films, Helen is the dancer performing this song on screen. But of course, the choreography is different in the two films. In this clip from ‘Dharma’, only one stanza of the original song from ‘Night In London’ is included and it is about 2 minutes in duration. Well this is one rare thing.

The second and most important rare thing about this song is that after Helen’s initial lip syncing to this cut-paste song, the actual song, sung by Asha Bhosle, is lip synced by four of the best cabaret dancers of that era. Of course after the Numero Uno – Helen – who’s in the first part. The subsequent segments are performed by Faryal, Sonia Sahani, Jayashree T and Bindu.

The video opens with Helen beginning the dance with some male dancers. The music has already begun. We can also see Ramesh Deo with Asit Sen, who is watching the dance wide-eyed and lecherously. They go to another dance bar and Faryal starts her part followed by Sonia Sahni performing in the third bar. In the fourth bar, Jayashree T is performing bhangra. In the last bar, they do drugs with drinks while Bindu is performing. In this film, Madan Puri and Ramesh Deo are together shown to cheat rich men by taking them to clubs and tempting them with wine and women. The song shows Seth Garib Das (Asit Sen) is being trapped by them and this cabaret number is organized for him.

I hope all of you like the interesting facts of this song as well as the song. Please comment.


Song – Arey Saaqi Jo Kal Ki Hai Bachi Baaki (Dharma) (1973) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Omi, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Sonik-Omi

Lyrics

yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

har ek dil ko dhadakne ki aadat huyi
main jis gali se bhi guzri qayamat huyi
log nazren bichaane lage
log nazren bichaane lage
haal dil ka sunaane lage
yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
utha parda
dekh jalwa
ke sheeshe mein
jawani ab utar jaaye
arey saaqi

rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
aa
rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
soyi hui jawani ko
tu chhoo ke zara jaga ja
meri nigahein, aadayen ye baahein bulaayen
veeraa. . .
hahh veeraa. . .aah
la laa la laa la laa la laa

o ho
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
arey saaqi

dil le ja nishaani
badi meherbaani
haaye dil le jaa nishaani
badi meherbaani
teri jiyegi
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
o mere dil jaani
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
ho mere dil jaani
haaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajana..aa..aa. . .

dum mein dum hai to dum laga
duniya kya hai nasha hi nasha
aasmaan ke baadal to
kuchh bhi nahin
mazaa to tab hai ke
zameen pe baadal bana
mere humdum
raat hai kam
ke baaton mein
ye saari
raat na jaaye
mere humdum. . .

यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

हर एक दिल को धड़कने की आदत हुई
मैं जिस गली से भी गुज़री क़यामत हुई
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
हाल दिल का सुनाने लगे
यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
उठा पर्दा
देख जलवा
के शीशे में
जवानी अब उतार जाये
अरे साक़ी

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा
सोई हुई जवानी को
तू छू के ज़रा जगा जा
मेरी निगाहें अदाएं ये बाहें बुलाएँ
वीरा॰ ॰ ॰
हाहह वीरा॰ ॰ ॰ आहह
ल ला ल ला ल ला ल ला

ओ हो
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
अरे साक़ी

दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
हाय दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
तेरी जिएगी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
ओ मेरे दिल जानी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
हो मेरे दिल जानी
हाए वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

दम में दम है तो दम लगा
दुनिया क्या है नशा ही नशा
आसमां के बादल तो
कुछ भी नहीं
मज़ा तो तब है के
ज़मीं पे बादल बना
मेरे हमदम
रात है कम
के बातों में
ये सारी
रात ना जाये
मेरे हमदम॰ ॰ ॰

Satyajit ji,
Bravo !
Despite your pain and the inabilities, you have written this post. It is highly creditable.
I am happy that your thoughts about the Blog and the members of our group are the same as all of us. We truly feel so much about each others. Actually, it is a rare thing ( adding to your two rare things in your post today). It is said that it is difficult to grow friendship,once you are around 40 years, but here all of us have belied this rule and have become friends. Thanks to this great Blog.
Thanks again for your post today and here is wishing you faster recovery.
-AD

What you say is so correct. We are all blessed to get such good friends through the blog.

What a bouquet of dancers! I have seen the film back in the day when it was playing in cinema houses. There was a huge rush of crowds to see it. But, alas, all I remember is the big song, raaz ki baat keh doon to. Pran was the big draw of the film. His style had all the viewers whistling and clapping.

How wonderful of you to draw attention to the uniqueness of the song. I don’t think such a use of another song has ever been done. Though in many RK films I have heard tunes of songs from other films, but there the MD was the same and also the film company.

I am hoping you will no longer suffer health complications. What you say about the feet is on point. I always get comfortable shoes and pay attention to my feet. I even wash my sneakers often as they can carry bacteria, being laced up.

Really a unique song. Something that Nasir Hussain had a habit of dishing out. Four songs at a time etc
But this is five in one. What an idea.
Take care of yourself and sharwariji- your pillar of strength.
And you are one Atulite whose time zone is ahead of the others. So you should begin the celebrations tomorrow.

Satyajit Ji,
Thanks for the post.Yes, It is an unusual dance number with multiple dancers at different dance bars. The tune is typical of 70’s when old timers ( MD’s) slowly faded. I have not heard this song before.
Regards

Lovely to see your post here, Satyajitji.
Really appreciate that still managed to write a post, inspite of the surgery and pain. Shows how much you care for the blog and Atulites.
Totally enjoyed watching this song. It’s a five-in-one – never seen one like this before. Catchy tune too. I remember seeing this movie as a kid – it was quite a hit, I think. I vaguely remember Pran being surrounded by the police early on, but escaping. Then being in disguise. Later in the film we have “raaz ki baat keh doon to” to suggest blowing his cover. Itna yaad hai. 🙂
Thanks once again.
It’s enjoyable to read all these celebration posts. 🙂

Dear Satyajit ji,
Really very creditable that you have posted this rare song braving your health condition and the associated physical and psychological stresses.
While watching the movie in the hall, it never occurred to me that it was a unique situation conceived and contrived by the makers of the film, mainly the writer and the director employing the 5 popular dancers of that time.
Thank you very much for bringing it to the attention of ASAD and HFM lovers.
Wishing you a very speedy recovery from your ailments and hope you regain your vigours and energy at the earliest.
Best regards,
Avadh Lal

A BIG Thank you to one and all, those who have commented here and also to those who have read the post. God bless you always!!

@Satyajit ji – first of all my apologies for the delay in commenting on this post. Actually I had read the post the same day, but since I do not remember this song I thought I would watch the song before I comment on the post, however other things in between got over it.
Now, for me the movie ‘Dharma’ means Pran Saab and ‘raaz ki baat kehdoon to …’, only these two memories and nostalgia of this qawwali is what I have in my mind and permanently there all over these years.
I vaguely remember to have watch this movie with my father when I must be around five.
And I don’t remember to have watched this movie again either in Theater or TV.
Once again thanks for the post, this rare song and interesting facts about it …!!! ( and I hope you forgive me for my late response)
Congratulations to you and all … yes , officially the ‘celebrations’ are not over yet … I hope they continue till 18th August with some posts in between 🙂
असित सेन के अभिनय का जिस विशेषण के साथ आपने वर्णन किया वह पढने के बाद, गाना देखते हुए बार बार हंसी आ रही थी 😊, पता नहीं असित सेन को ‘इस अभिनय’ के लिए कोई पुरस्कार भी मिला था या नहीं
