Blog Day : 3721 Post No. : 14656

By now it seems to have become a routine for me to make only cameos on this blog, triggered either by a memorable event (such as the blog’s tenth anniversary) or a “nudge” from another Atulite. 🙂

I will not seek to correct this impression – for the facts speak for themselves. I will also not make any excuse of “being busy” – that would only be an insult to people like Atul and Sudhir ji who manage to give so much time to the blog, despite so many demands on their time.

So no excuse – mea culpa. Today’s post is also a result of a nudge – this time from Peevisie’s Mom.

It happens to be the birthday of Feroz Khan today – and she called me up to remind me of it. A while ago, she and I had discussed that the popular song “Hamaare Siwa. . .” (‘Apradh’ – 1972) had not yet been posted on the blog – so she called up to remind me that there was an occasion coming up to remedy the situation. 🙂 So here is the post for this song – and to remember Feroz Khan.

I remember writing about Feroz Khan earlier – I think it was a couple of years ago. I haven’t checked that post – and am writing purely from my thoughts of the moment – so kindly excuse me if much of what I say is repetitive.

Feroz Khan, for me, has his own place in Hindi cinema. There are many who had a more successful career than Feroz. Certainly as an actor, he wasn’t rated all too highly, if I’m to be brutally honest. He had his moments, but one would have to be disingenuous about his acting achievements, to put him in the same league as at least a dozen other actors/stars.

And though he was very successful as a producer/director, there have been more successful producers / directors. And yet, for me, Feroz holds his own in Hindi cinema. As a personality, he seemed to me to have something about him that made him different from others. I think it was the way he carried himself.

Much of my exposure to Feroz was, of course, in the 1970s. By that time he had turned producer – so I got to see him both as actor and producer – in films like ‘Apradh’ (1972), ‘Dharmatma’ (1975) and ‘Qurbani’ (1980). All these films have one thing in common – they are all made on a grand scale, with no expenses spared, no corners cut in producing an extravagant spectacle for the audience. Naturally this became the image of Feroz Khan in my mind – and I think, for most people. His films are glamorous, with foreign locales, expensive cars and the like. Feroz seemed to revel in this flamboyant image – and continued it through the 1980s and 90s in films like ‘Janbaaz’ (1986), ‘Dayavan’ (1988) and ‘Yalgaar’ (1992).

If the films made by him are to be taken as representative of his life, one would not be mistaken in saying that Feroz lived life king-size. I enjoyed each one of these films – they were thoroughly entertaining, with a decent story line (which is very important for me!) and good songs too. Most of the songs of films made by Feroz became super-hits, suggesting he had a good ear for music.

And yet, for me, the story doesn’t end here. It is the first half of his career, so very different from the second half, that makes his story fascinating for me. Like I’ve said before, my clearest memories of Feroz are from his films of the 1970s. But he acted in many films in the 1960s too – and any reference to his work that does not mention this would be incomplete.

One of my friends once jokingly said “Feroz Khan probably got into producing his own films because he got fed up of never getting the heroine.” 🙂

Yes, said in jest, but it is true that in many of his films till he began making his own, Feroz missed out. In some early films, he was the villain – so then it’s understandable. But in many other films too, even as the good / semi-good guy, he would end up not getting the heroine. In ‘Oonche Log’ (1964), the heroine dies – in ‘Mela’ (1970), his character dies as he “sacrifices” for his brother. And in films like ‘Aarzoo’ (1965), ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969), ‘Safar’ (1970), ‘Upaasna’ (1971), the heroine loves the other guy. Small consolation maybe that in ‘Darinda’ (1977) he manages to turn the tables on Sunil Dutt for ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969). 🙂

Of course, that was how the script was written – but it always made me feel bad to see Feroz lose out. 🙂 , even though he’d occasionally get to sing lovely songs like “Darpan Ko Dekha. . .”  and “Jo Tumko Ho Pasand. . .” in the process. 🙂

Then there were those black-and-white films of the 60s. Many not well-known, probably then categorized as “B’’ films. Many with Mumtaz, herself then not in the A league. Having both gone through similar careers in the 60s, Feroz and Mumtaz were very good friends – and it’s hardly surprising that Mumtaz was his lead when he produced Apradh (1972).

One song from a Feroz “B” film I fondly remember is “Anjaan hai koi” (‘Anjaan Hai Koi’ – 1969). I think this song was quite popular in its time – at least I remember it from my childhood. Other less-known Feroz films I remember are ‘Ek Paheli’ (1971) with Tanuja (“Main Ek Paheli Hoon”) and ‘Anjaan Raahen’ (1974) with Asha Parekh (“Mujhe Nahin Poochhni Tumse Beeti Baatein”).

And of course, ‘Kashmakash’ (1973) and films like ‘Khote Sikke’ (1974) and ‘Kaala Sona’ (1975). The last-two were typical films that could have been made for Feroz – I remember enjoying both of them. 🙂

In general, I liked watching his films, especially of the 70s and later – they were never boring. Feroz himself, while never having pretensions to being a great actor, was fun to watch. And one of my favourite Rafisaab songs is picturised on him – “Jaag Dil-e-Deewaana”. 🙂 (‘Oonche Log’ – 1965).

So today, on his birthday, I have fond memories of Feroz Khan – and want to thank him for making entertaining films, with lovely songs. Today’s song is from ‘Apradh’ (1972) – the once very popular “Hamaare Siwa”. I remember listening to it a lot on radio at the time.

I saw the movie ages ago – sometime in the 70s. Have not seen it since, so I don’t remember anything of the story. I think it was something to do with smuggling, and had a lot of foreign locales, but sorry, I can’t remember any more than this. It’s surprising that in more than 10 years on this blog, the song hasn’t been posted yet. But better late than never, I guess.

So today, on Feroz Khan’s birthday, let’s all enjoy this song from his own film – the first film he produced/directed.

 

Song – Hamaare Siwa Tumhaare Aur Kitne Deewaane Hain (Apradh) (1972) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare?
haan tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
achha?
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

khoobsoorati aur wafaa
dekhi na donon ek jagah
haan haan dekhi na donon ek jagah
hote hain mard bade shakki
baat hai ye bilkul pakki
bholi si
aati ho nazar
haan haan bholi si
aati ho nazar
ho chanchal chaalaak magar
aurat ka dil jaane nahin
aap hamen pehchaane nahin
chhodo chhodo hum bhi sayaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

tum ho pareshaan kis gham se
raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
haan haan raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
apni kaho chhodo meri
karte ho kyon hera pheri
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
sab ko nishaana banaate nahin
khud harjaayee bhanwre ho tum
ek jagah kab thehre ho tum
chhodo chhodo hum to parwaane hain

hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
hmm
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
————————————————————

हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
हमारे?
हाँ तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं
कसम से किसी को नहीं मैं जानती
अच्छा?
और किसी को नहीं पहचानती
अरे छोड़ो छोड़ो ये तो बहाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

खूबसूरती और वफा
देखी न दोनों एक जगह
हाँ हाँ देखी न दोनों एक जगह
होते हैं मर्द बड़े शक्की
बात है ये बिलकुल पक्की
भोली सी आती हो नज़र
हो चंचल चालाक मगर
औरत का दिल जाने नहीं
आप हमें पहचाने नहीं
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम भी सयाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

तुम हो परेशान किस ग़म से
राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
हाँ हाँ राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
अपनी कहो छोड़ो मेरी
करते हो क्यों हेरा फेरी
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
सबको निशाना बनाते नहीं
खुद हरजाई भँवरे हो तुम
एक जगह कब ठहरे हो तुम
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम तो परवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं
कसम से किसी को नहीं मैं जानती
हम्म॰॰॰
और किसी को नहीं पहचानती
अरे छोड़ो छोड़ो ये तो बहाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं

aahaa! the first song that we used to sing, years ago, at antakshari when given the “akshar” ‘ha’ is finally here
a very sweet post Rajaji. and even i have heard that joke – “Feroz Khan probably got into producing his own films because he got fed up of never getting the heroine.”.
but whatever be the reason he had a style all his own. a drawl all his own. and always well maintained even when he was grappling with illness “welcome” which released in 2007 is a testimony

@Atul ji /Sudhir ji,
One correction please – below the video clip in the lyrics – provided by …
Please delete my name, as I have not shared earlier/sent now the lyrics for this song.
Thanks,

Avinash ji,

Thanks for the catch; correction has been made.

Raja Saab , thanks for this write up and song. Thanks Peevesie’s Mom ji for the “nudge” 🙂
Raja Saab, as you rightly said Feroz Khan has his own place in Hindi Cinema and his movies of 70s-early 80s have special place of ‘Nostalgia’ for people like me who were growing in these years watching Hindi Cinema.
“Tum mile pyaar se” my favorite from this movie and around 6/7 years back I had brought VCD of this movie to watch it as I do not remember the movie or its story. (May be I had watched it in my childhood with elders in the family).
I remember the today’s song was also frequently heard on radio.
Then “Khotey Sikke” is our permanent memory …
There are still many of his movies and songs yet to appear on the blog and after reading your article I am thinking that I can also try a write up from my side in future with a song from his movie 🙂
Thanks again …!!!
