“Phaansi”(1978) was directed by Harmesh Malhotra for Eastern Films, Bombay. This movie had Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit, Ranjeet, Pran, Jeewan, Ifthikhar, Sapru, Urmila Bhatt, Sudhir, Rammohan, Mohan Sherry, Shetty, Birbal, Aarti, Rajrani, aruna Irani, Asrani etc in it. THe movie also had special appearances by Anwar Hussain, B M Vyas, Randheer, Poornima, Mohan Choti, Chaman Puri and Dev Kumar.

This movie was one of those one hundred odd movies that Shashi Kapoor had signed up after the fortuitious success of his “Chor Machaaye Shor”(1975). The success of that movie had more to do with the music but Shashi Kapoor was the biggest beneficiary. Produceers made a beeline signing up Shashi Kapoor. Shashi Kapoor signed up all the movies indiscriminately. He became so busy that he did not have “dates” to offer for the shooting of these movies. Those were the days when actors gave “dates” in units of “shifts”, but Shashi Kapoor began to give his “dates” in units of “hours” rather than “shifts”, much to the chagrin of his producers, including his elder brother Raj Kapoor, who had signed him up for “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” (1978).

I was no Shashi Kapoor fan, and I did not touc any of these Shashi Kapoor solo movies even with a barge pole.

Coming to “Phaansi”(1978), this movie was no great shakes. I did not watch it. The only thing worth remembering in this movie was a Rafi-Sulakshana Pandit duetsong, “jab aati hogi yaad meri.” This song, one out of four songs in the movie has already been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Phaansi”(1978) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a mujra dance song where Aruna Irani plays the mujre waali and Shashi Kapoor is her centre of attention. To this date, I have not understood why Hindi movie heroes (who were supposed to be men of virtue) would make their presence felt in the mujra songs of those days. 🙂


Song-Hamaari beqaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena (Phaansi)(1978) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

Lyrics

humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir
idhar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir
idhar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si
nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar

kya batlaaun mere qaatil
kaise tumko paaya hai
jab galiyaan galiyaan dil bhatka
tab is manzil tak aaya hai
ajeeb hai ye pyaar ka safar bhi dekh lena
ajeeb hai ye pyaar ka safar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo
to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

aap ke deewaane bhi
aap ke deewaane bhi
aise kahaan baaz aate hain
dil se hain jo khelte
jaan pe bhi khel jaate hain
ab chaahe qayaamat uthh jaaye
deewaane kahaan ghabraate hain
ghabraate hain
ghabraate hain
tum aaj gham ke maaron ka jigar bhi dekh lena
tum aaj gham ke maaron ka jigar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo
to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

aa aa
loot ke baithhe ho tum
loot ke baithhe ho tum
kis ko andheri raaton mein
lahu ye hai ke rang hai
kuchh to laga hai haathon mein
yoon hi nahi kaha jaane jahaan
kuchh dam hain humari baato mein
haan baato me
ae ji baaton mein
udegi subah tak koi khabar bhi dekh lena
udegi subah tak koi khabar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome to today’s post (albeit one day late) under this series. Today’s post under this series is coming after a long gap of almost two years, though in between I had written two articles on Rajesh Khanna’s anniversaries.

29th December 2018 is the 76th birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (29.12.1942-18.07.2012).

In the previous article under this series we had a song from the ‘1978 movie ‘Chakravyuh’ and today we move forward to the year ‘1979’ …

I had mentioned it earlier and our Atul ji has also been writing this that by ‘mid-seventies’ the Rajesh Khanna magic started declining and his ‘golden period’ was almost over.

Why I am writing ‘almost over’ was because though his movies were failing at the ‘box-office’ they were still coming and he was seen in doing many different types of roles.

The difference was that his movies were not getting commercial success or they do not generate the same hysteria as his movies had been from ‘1969 to 1975’ or we can say from the period of ‘Aradhana’ to ‘Prem Kahaani’.

In ‘1976’ we had his much awaited and talked about movie ‘Mehboobaa’ directed by Kaka’s favorite director Shakti Samanta and the ‘team’ of RD-Anand Bakshi-Kishore together though creating the magical ‘mere naina saawan bhaadon’, ‘parbat ke peechhe’, etc it was not successful at the ‘box-office’.

In ‘1977’ Kaka had a ‘hit’ in ‘Chhaila Baabu’. And the critically acclaimed ‘Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein’…

‘1978’ again was not seen as good for him though his performances in ‘Chakravyuha’ and ‘Naukari’ were appreciated by the critics.

If we go through the filmography of Rajesh Khanna for these years i.e. 1976 to 1979, we can see his seeking different roles like and some of them like a ‘common man’ or ‘man next door’ viz. in ‘Mahaachor’, ‘Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein-1977’ (where he played a ‘postman’), ‘Chakravyuha-1978’, ‘Bhola-Bhala-1978’- an insurance agent (another role is of a ‘dacoit),

Then we can just see the range of directors he was working with for example if we talk of his ‘lean period’ or I can say those years where he was still a ‘under current’ existing strongly and waiting to hit on the ‘top’ again;

He had movies with directors like B.R. Chopra, Basu Chatterjee, Hrishikesh Mukherji, Narinder Bedi, Ramanand Sagar, Mehmood, Joy Mukherji, Omprakash and his favorite Shakti Samant.

Year Passed by Censor on Movie Director
1976 19.07.1976 Mehboobaa Shakti Samant

1979 10.01.1979 Jantaa Hawaldaar Mehmood
1979 18.04.1979 Amar Deep K. Vijayan and R. Krishnamurti

(* I have not included his movies with ‘Special Appearance’ like ‘Tinku’, ‘Hatyaara’, ‘Naya Bakraa’ etc in above list and corrected myself by including ‘Prem Bandhan’ for ‘1978’ which I missed to include in my previous article 😊)

And if we include ‘awards’ in our discussion he was nominated for the Best Actor Award by BFJA (Bengal Film Journalists’ Association Awards) for ‘Mehboobaa’, ‘Anurodh’, ‘Chakravyuha’, and ‘Amar Deep’ during this period.

He won the ‘All India Critics Association Award’ for ‘Best Actor’ for the movie ‘Chhaila Babu-1977’.

At the ‘Filmfare’ awards he was nominated in ‘Best Actor’ category for the movie ‘Amar Deep-1979’ (and this nomination for him at ‘Filmfare’ came after 1974 when he was nominated for the ‘Best Actor’ award for ‘Prem Nagar-1974’).

(for that matter sometimes, I think that he was loved very much by ‘Bengal’ and they loved him the most. I have a personal experience related to this, which I intend to share in my future articles under this series).
***

In my previous posts I start giving the details of the movies of Rajesh Khanna in that particular year of the song I was presenting therewith. And so, in the last two posts where we discussed the songs of Rajesh Khanna movies of 1977 and 1978, I am presenting today’s post with a song of a movie released in 1979.

His movie list of 1979 is as given below;

SNo Movie Year Passed by Censor Board
01 Jantaa Hawaldaar 1979 10.01.1979
02 Nayaa Bakraa 1979 16.02.1979*
03 Amardeep 1979 18.04.1979
04 Muqaabalaa 1979 14.09.1979*

(*special appearance)

(So, that is one change that I have made in my ‘presentation’ of the posts in this series. And, while I find it interesting, I am sure that readers will also enjoy this.)

Because, in this journey we have started from the years where Rajesh Khanna’s golden period was over and his movies in row were getting flopped at the box-office and he was ‘trying hard’ to get over to the ‘top’ again.

And though his movies, acting wise some the best of his career, had miserable failures at the box office his fans were still there and while Kaka was ‘as always’ in his heart saying to them ‘is kadar itnaa tumhe ham pyaar kartein hain’, his fans were waiting and more fans were waiting, to welcome him back again with ‘tum nahin jaanoge, tum nahin maanoge ‘kis kadar kitnaa’ tumhe ham pyaar kartein hain’ …

With this movie ‘Amar Deep-1979’ we move to the ‘eighties’ where Kaka’s style and mannerisms hit the screens again and Rajesh Khanna days were back again reaching to its heights (in terms of number of his number of movies in a single year) …

***

‘Amar Deep-1979’ was directed by K. Vijayan and R. Krishnamurti for ‘Sujatha International, Madras’. Presented by K. Balaje.

It had Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Shabana Azmi, Deven Verma, A.K. Hangal, Roopesh Kumar, Bindu and others. Ashok Kumar had a special appearance in the movie while Mithun Chakravarty had a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie. This movie introduced actress Deepa (from South).

Dialogues of this movie were written by Ali Raza, and Prem Kapoor was the dialogue director. Editing for this movie was done by B. Kandaswamy.

Music of this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. This movie had four songs written by Anand Bakshi. Anuradha Paudwal, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar had given their voices to these songs.

Rafi Saab had sung a song (few lines) which appears at the end of the movie and had already been posted on the blog here.

In the very beginning of the titles of the movie ‘sincere thanks’ have been expressed to Kaifi Azmi and Rafi Saab, so I guess that these lines were written by Kaifi Azmi.

HFGK Vol-V does not mention this song in the list of songs of this movie. (However, I would request editors to correct the number of songs of this movie to ‘five’ on the blog, with the today’s song it will be (3/5))

One other song from this movie ‘koi na tere pehle thhi’ was posted earlier on the blog in 2013.

I get to watch this movie after Rajesh Khanna’s sad demise in 2012 on a TV Channel.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. The song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi.

Song-Tum nahin maanoge (Amardeep)(1979) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Tum nahin maanoge
Tum nahin jaanoge
Iss kadar itnaa tumhe
Ham pyaar kartein hain
Zindagi hai tumse
Har khushi hai tumse
Hum tumhaare saamne iqraar kartey hain
Tum nahin maanoge

Kiss kadar kitna tumhen hum pyaar kartein hain
Aankh jhuk jaati hai
saans ruk jaati hai
Jab kabhi hum pyaar ka ijhaar kartey hain
Tum nahin maanoge

Arey tum nahin jaanoge ae

Har ik din ahaa milan ka din
Ahaa

Har ik raat milan ki raat

Ab tumse kahen kaise
Lab pe jo ruki hai baat
Hum kahaan us baat se inkaar karte hain
Kiss kadar kitna tumhe hum pyaar kartein hain
Tum nahin maanoge ae

Tum nahin jaanoge ae

Rut badli samaa badlaa aa aa

Lehraaya naya mausam
Aise mein kaho tum to
Kaanon mein kahen kuchh hum

Jo kaho manzoor hum sarkaar kartey hain
Ham tumhaare saamne iqraar kartey hain
Tum nahin manaoge
Tum nahin jaanoge

Jhaanko to mere dil mein
Samjho kya kahaani hai

तुम नहीं मानोगे
तुम नहीं जानोगे
इस कदर इतना तुम्हे
हम प्यार करतें हैं
ज़िन्दगी है तुमसे
हर ख़ुशी हैं तुमसे
हम तुम्हारे सामने इकरार करते हैं
तुम नहीं मानोगे
तुम नहीं जानोगे
किस कदर कितना तुम्हे हम प्यार करतें हैं
आँख झुक जाती हैं
साँस रुक जाती हैं
जब कभी हम प्यार का इजहार करते हैं
तुम नहीं मानोगे

अरे तुम नहीं जानोगे ए

हर एक दिन अहा मिलन का दिन
अहा
हर एक दिन अहा मिलन का दिन
हर एक रात मिलन की रात

अब तुमसे कहें कैसे
लब पे जो रुकी हैं बात
हम कहाँ उस बात से इनकार करतें हैं
किस कदर कितना तुम्हे हम प्यार करतें हैं
तुम नहीं मानोगे

तुम नहीं जानोगे

रुत बदली समा बदला आ आ
लहराया नया मौसम
ऐसे में कहो तुम तो
कानों में कहें कुछ हम

जो कहो मंज़ूर हम सरकार करते हैं
हम तुम्हारे सामने इकरार करते हैं
तुम नहीं मानोगे
तुम नहीं जानोगे

झांको तो मेरे दिल में
समझो क्या कहानी है

ये अपनी मोहब्बत की
बड़ी प्यारी निशानी है
ऊँ ऊँ ऊँ ऊँ ऊँ ऊँ ऊँ
ये अपनी मोहब्बत की
बड़ी प्यारी निशानी है
दिल्लगी क्या यूं सरे बाज़ार करतें हैं
अरे इस कदर इतना तुम्हे हम प्यार करतें हैं
तुम नहीं मानोगे
तुम नहीं जानोगे
किस कदर कितना तुम्हे हम प्यार करतें हैं

इस कदर इतना तुम्हे हम प्यार करतें हैं
तुम नहीं मानोगे
तुम नहीं जानोगे

Blog Day : 3816 Post No. : 14814

Hullo to all of Atuldom

I seem to be running short of time daily. And I have missed many dates in the month of DECEMBER for which I would have loved to atleast write out the lyrics and send it to Atulji for appropriate posts. Birthdates of Shatrughan Sinha, Dilip Kumar, Rajnikant, Raj Kapoor, Om Prakash, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan etc. I even had songs of Suresh Oberoi, Mahipal, John Abraham ready in my head. Atulji surprised me by nearly missing Mohd. Rafi’s birthdate, but trust the eternal Rafi Bhakts in our group to send in posts on time and remind Atulji (he always tells that he is bad at remembering dates 🙂 🙂 ).

29th December is another important date for bhakts of Hindi films of the 70s- it is the birthdate of Kaka aka Rajesh Khanna of the charming smile that got him a huge female-fan-following that was crazy enough to write him letters dipped in blood, and I have read in numerous articles and heard hundreds of interviews about how his car would be covered with kisses of his fans. Rajesh Khanna the first real superstar of Bollywood who had 15 consecutive solo hits from 1969 to 1971- an unbroken record. He had 127 films (117 released and 11 unreleased) as protagonist and only 22 multi-star films. He had a fan-following among his fraternity too and Mehmood parodied him in “Bombay To Goa” where the driver and conductor of the bus were called ‘Rajesh’ and ‘Khanna’.

We all know that Rajesh Khanna’s career had a great take off with the double role that he played in Shakti Samantha’s ‘Aradhana’ singing “ho oooo,he aeae, ha aaaa” on an open jeep travelling alongside the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway’s toy train to a bashful Sharmila Tagore pretending to be disturbed in her reading of the Alister Maclean’s “Where Eagles Dare”. But his pairings with Asha Parekh, Mumtaz, Hema Malini, Rekha, Rakhee, Zeenat and others of the 70s were no less eye-pleasing. His most popular songs may have been sung by Kishore Kumar but can anyone forget “Ye jo chilman hai dushman hai humari”; “bina badra ke bijuriya kaise chamke”; “humse ka bhool hui jo yeh sazaa humka mili”; “arre jana hai toh jao boolayenge nahin” or the forever classic “zindagi kaisi hai paheli hai re”. A lot of the singers of the 70s and 80s have had opportunity to give playback for Kaka but we cannot escape the Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna songs.

For today’s post I have chosen a Rajesh Khanna – Hema Malini song- this was a favourite pair of mine post “zindagi ek safar hai suhana” and Kudrat, Mehbooba, Rajput etc only made me love this pair even more. They have appeared in 10-15 movies together.

The song I chose is from the 1979 released Mehmood directed “Janta Hawaldaar”. Hema Malini had an extended guest appearance in the movie. I have also managed to steer clear of ‘Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna’ addiction as also the Anand Bakshi- R D Burman strangle. The song is sung by Anwar in a very Rafi-like manner with Majrooh as the lyricist ad Rajesh Roshan as composer. And the added bonus in the song is Rajesh Khanna has danced differently.

This may be my last post for the year. So I thought I should take this opportunity to wish all of Atuldom a very Happy 2019. And close the year thinking of Kaka or Jatin Khanna (his birthname)- our very own Rajesh Khanna.


Song-Aadhi roti saara kabaab (Janta Hawaldaar)(1979)Singers-Lata, Anwar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan

“Afsaana” (1966) was a Devi Movietones presentation. It was produced by Dilip Mukherji and directed by Brij Sadanah. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Padmini, Pradeep Kumar, Jagdeep, Helen,Anwar Hussain, Tuntun JeevanKala, Master Khaliq, Jillani, Amrit Rana, Amar,Ted Lyons and His Cubs etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Afsaana” (1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Padmini who is shows lip syncing this joyous song while driving a car and going through roads that appear quite empty. we are talking of 1966 when Indian roads indeed were empty with very few people owing cars. Even owning two wheelers was considered a sign of luxury and privilege those days.

One may enjoy the picturisation, but one is not advised to handle the steering wheel like Padmini ! She is shown grabbing the steeling wheel with one hand, and she keeps rotating the steering wheel even on straight road. 🙂 If ladies get inspired to drive watching Padmini them most pedestrians will run for cover, that is for sure. 🙂

The car is also shown going through a bridge over a river. This portion of the scene somehow reminded myself of Bogibeel bridge, India’s longest rail cum road bridge over the mighty Brahmputra river that was inaugurated recently (on 25 december 2018). I would dearly love to talk about that bridge in one of my future writeups. For now, let us enjoy this road song from “Afsaana” (1966)

Song-Jaise kahin lehra ke pawan chanchal nikle(Afsaana)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lata, Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

jaise kahin lehraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
jaise kahin lahraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
tod ke har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

bin jaane bin dekhe
kise humraahi keh dete
bin jaane bin dekhe
kise humraahi keh dete
duniya ko thukraa ke
hum khenche huye aanchal nikle
jaise kahin lehraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
tod ke har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
wahaan koi nahin apna
peechhe mud kar kya takna
wahaan koi nahin apna
peechhe mud kar kya takna
chalte hi rahne ki
jab baandh ke hum paayal nikle
jaise kahin lehraa ke pawan chanchal nikle
tod ke har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

aayegi kabhi ae dil teri manchaahi koi manzil
aayegi kabhi ae dil teri manchaahi koi manzil
hum bhi to isi dhun mein
aankhon mein bhare kaajal nikle
jaise kahi lehrake pawan chanchal nikle
tod kar har zanjeer sitam hum chal nikle

# Superstar Child Artist – Jr. Mehmood # 5
—————————————————————————

Welcome all to this fifth article in this series, where I am presenting songs picturised on Superstar Child Artist Junior Mehmood and simultaneously exploring his filmography along with his biographical information too.

So far, we have enjoyed the following songs under this series;

Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

Na koi paisa na ilm

Mera naam hai Mehmood

Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

As I have mentioned in my articles earlier, Junior Mehmood was a familiar name for us children who were growing and still young in the years of the ‘seventies’, and he was the most loved ‘child artist’ in those years of early seventies.

And because of those memories and nostalgia associated with the movies he acted, some of the songs picturised on him became a part of my permanent memory.

Today’s song is one such song and which surprisingly have remained to be posted on the blog so far.

Naeem Sayyad whom we know by the name of Junior Mehmood was born on 15th November’1956 in a middle-class family in Mumbai. His father was a railway engine driver in the railways and Naeem was among the six siblings in the family.

His elder brother was a photographer and used to work for films and during one such shoot when little Naeem accompanied him to watch the shooting it so happened that when a child star working in the movie ‘Kitna Naazuk Hai Dil’ (shelved) was not able to deliver his dialogues properly that little Naeem took a dig at him saying ‘you cannot even speak these simple lines’. The director of the movie was present there and he asked little Naeem if he can speak those lines without mistake and there little Naeem got his first break to work in Hindi movies and the rest is history, as he was noticed (on the sets of ‘Suhaag Raat-1968’) by the great comedian Mehmood who not only give his name to him and recommended him to many producers/directors. Thereafter it was not looking back for Junior Mehmood and he had gone on to become the most famous and beloved ‘child artist’ during those years and also one of the richest among other junior artists then.

Junior Mehmood celebrated his 62nd birth anniversary during last month (15th November) and though I personally wished him on his birthday on the 14th evening itself I got late in sending this article for the blog due to some hectic work schedule at workplace. (I also apologise to our Editors for the delay on my part in sending this article to them, even though I had sent them a message of sending the article then).

Well, coming back to the today’s song, it is from the 1970 movie ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani’.
Yes, the movie which is mostly famous for its song ‘samaa hai suhaana suhaana, nashe mein jahaan hai’. And very aptly this movie was launched with this song on the blog ( almost ten years back now 🙂 ) in 2009.

I also mentioned in my earlier articles under this series that I am trying to list out the filmography of Junior Mehmood since I found that the filmography mentioned by various sources had some discrepancies in it.

‘Naunihaal-1967’ was his first released movie.

He shot to fame with his performance in ‘Bramhachari-1968’ wherein he also performed on Mehmood’s ‘ham kaale hain to kya hua’ (from ‘Gumnaam-1965’).

Mehmood was his ‘Guru’.

In ‘1971’ he again performed on Mehmood’s famous ‘Mehbooba mehbooba bana leo mijhe dulha’ (from ‘Sadhu Aur Shaitaan-1968’) in the movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong’ wherein Mehmood and I.S. Johar were the main leads.
I have mentioned the above in my earlier article in this series here.

We also saw him repeating Mehmood’s ‘Hamjoli-1966’ act in the song ‘birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya’, which was covered in the previous article in this series.

However, during the preparation of today’s article I came across a link from the movie ‘Baalak-1969’ where Junior Mehmood is performing on Shashi Kapoor’s ‘Affo Khudaa’ from the 1965 movie ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. I am giving this link for interested readers to watch it here (just watch it and enjoy 🙂 ).

In the song being presented today we can see him doing a ‘Shammi Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Mehmood’ 😊

From 1967 to 1970 he acted in twenty-three movies as mentioned in the table given below.

And from this list we can guess how popular he was in those years.
(The HFGK Vol IV (1961-1970) does not mention the release dates of the movies so it is difficult to arrange the movie according to their date of release unless otherwise I watch each movie and note down its date of release from its certificate.)

‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani-1970’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Vijaya International, Bombay’.

It was produced by B. Nagi Reddi & Chakrapani.

It had Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Bharati, Gajanan Jagirdar, Sulochana Chatterjee, Shabnam, Maruti, Praveen Pal, Jalal Agha and Rakesh Roshan with Mahesh Kumar, Baby Sonia, Master Ripple and Junior Mehmood and supported by many others.

Om Prakash, Jagdeep and Shashikala made a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The story of this movie was written by Poovanan M.A while the dialogues were written by Inder Raj Anand. Editing of this movie was done by C.P. Jamboolingam.

This movie had total five songs written by Rajinder Krishan (2), Hasrat Jaipuri (2) and Qamal Jalalabadi (1).
Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Hemlata, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

(going by the titles of this movie I guess it was passed by the Censor Board on 04.11.1970) …

This movie ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani-1970’ is important from the point of view of Junior Mehmood films because he was nominated for the National Award for the best child actor for this movie. However, it awarded to Rishi Kapoor for the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker-1970’.

I was curious to know how he had felt that time and want to know from Junior Mehmood himself. When asked about it, he was very humble to say that it was a quite happy moment in his life as he was appreciated and he didn’t have any regrets on not winning the award then.

Today’s song is sung by Hemlata and written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Let us now enjoy the song …

Note *** (there are some parts of the old songs of Hindi movies used in this song of which the lyrics were already available on the blog and I have copied the respective ‘antaras/song’ from the blog and reproduced here, instead of noting down the lyrics again)

Today’s song is from an obscure old film of the first decade of the Talkie films- Snehlata-1936.

The song is sung by Rajkumari under the baton of Lallubhai Nayak. This Prakash Pictures’ film was directed by Balwant Bhatt-elder brother of another director Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of the film was, Gulab, Jayant, Panna, Umakant, Shirin Bano, Rajkumari,Lallubhai etc etc.

When films started to be made in India, in the early part of the 20th century, only local talent was used,naturally. As the industry started taking a shape,it was seen as an opportunity to earn wages. It was also an industry which did not require high education, a better creed or a particular religion. All that was required was to look reasonably well ( even tolerable) and readiness to do work. When films were shown in villages towns and cities, it created a desire in the hearts of aspirants and a flow to the film centres like Lahore, Calcutta, Kolhapur and Bombay started.

The Talkie film set the norms for actors. for the main roles-good looks, ability to speak in Hindi and singing ability and for other roles-tolerable looks, readiness to learn and do hard work were the standards. Being Talkie, knowledge of speaking Hindi/Urdu became necessary. This automatically became an exit point for several European, Jew and Anglo Indian artistes who had dominated the silent films. Thus the gates now opened for Hindu and Muslim girls, boys and adults.

As the industry grew, opportunities and requirements increased. Aspirants from other than local stations started pouring in, making the film industry a true representative Of Bharat, that is India. people from far off places thronged to Bombay, Lahore and Calcutta. Bombay had artistes hailing from U.P., Rajasthan, Bengal, Punjab, Delhi in addition to Gujarat and Maharashtra. Some artistes came from obscure and far off places too.

Some such examples come to mind offhand are, Hero Vijaykumar came from Shimla ( later even Sheila Ramani also came from there), kamla Kotnis from Andhra, Ranjan from Tamilnad, A,K,Dar aka Jeevan and Chandramohan from Kashmir, Amirbai Karnataki from Hubli, Sarvottam Badami from Bangalore etc etc.

When actress Shyama Zutshi from Kashmir acted in films like Vishnu Bhakti-34 and Karvaan E Hayaat-35, there was a hue and cry. Famous actor Chandramohan – who too was from Kashmir-resented that women from Kashmir came into films and warned Shyama not to act in films and go back. Eventually, she left films and joined Politics with her father in Kashmir. She is popularly considered as the First Kashmiri girl in Hindi films- followed by Yashodhara Katju in the 40s and 50s. Now of course so many girls and boys are from Kashmir in films. However Shyama Zutshi was NOT the first actress form Kashmir.

The First actress form Kashmir to work as a Heroine in Hindi films was GULAB, who was part of the cast of today’s film Snehlata-36. Her real name was Saraswati Devi. She was born on 10-6-1908 at Jammu. She joined Krishna Film Company in 1924. Her first silent film’Krishna kumar’ came in 1925. She worked in 60 silent films. Her last silent film was ‘Dagabaz Dushman’-32, made by east India Film co.Bombay.

Her first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33, made by Vishnu Cinetone. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. She sang one song ‘more preetam jab ghar aaye’ composed bu Kikubhai Yagnik. Then came Baburao Patel’s ‘Bala Joban’-34, Sewa Sadan-34 and Nai Duniya-34 ( Debut film of Rajkumari and Jayant). In this film Gulab sang 2 songs.

Gulab was very beautiful and quite popular in film industry. Some of her films were Bambai ki sethani-35, Challenge-37, Bharosa-40, Pyas-41, Ek Raat-42, Station master-42, Gaali-44, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Mirza Sahibaan-47, Lahore-49, Badi Behan-49, stage-51, Post Box 999-58, Chhabili-60 etc etc. She acted in 160 films. her last film seems to be Haqeeqat-64 ( stats from MuVyz)

The Hero of film Snehlata-36 was Jayant. I used to like his masculine, well built personality and resonant voice. Rugged type of roles ( like in Madhumati-58) suited him best. I wonder how this Pathan must have acted in love story films ! His real name was Zakeria Khan. His family was from Peshawar. he was born on 8-10-1915. Till he was 15 year old, his father Sardar S.A.Khan was a Sports superintendent in Alwar state. After schooling, Jayant joined Alwar state army as second Lt. After 2 years he quietly resigned and proceeded to Bombay to become an actor. His family was unaware of this.

For few months, he went from one studio to another looking for an opening. Finally Director Vijay Bhatt met him and took him in Prakash Pictures Gujarati film ‘Sansar leela’-33, which was remade in Hindi as Nai Duniya-34. After this no work for few months and he did smaller roles in stunt films- about 30 films. Director Gunjal advised him to shift to Social films and he did Mud-40, opposite Shobhana Samarth. Then there was no looking back. Films like Mala-41( which was remade as Amar-54 and Jayant had acted in it also doing the same role), Zevar-42, Daavat-43, Poonji-43, Shirin Farhad-45, Maa baap ki laaj-46, Shoharat-48 etc came to him.

Jayant did 105 films. He sang one song in film State Express-38 also. His last film was Insaniyat-74. Film ‘Love and God’ was released in 1986. Jayant had 3 sons- Amjad khan (Gabbar singh), Inayat khan and Imtiyaz khan. Jayant died on 2-6-1975….just 2 months before film ‘Sholey’-75 was released !

The film was directed by the elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt- Balwant Bhatt. He was born at Porbandar,Gujarat 0n 13-1-1909. Balwant started his career by assisting Naval Gandhi in 1930-31 and then N.B.Vakil at Sagar Studios in 1932. He turned Director with the advent of Talkie films and joined Prakash Pictures with Actress-1934. His first film was Chalta purja-1932 and the last one was Nagin aur Sapera-1966. He directed 33 films,mostly stunt and C grade films. He directed some Gujarati films like Sansar Leela,Seth Sagsha,Diwadandi,Snehlata etc.He was the producer of Dillagi-1942,Gunehgar,Alif Laila etc. Diwadandi-1950 became famous for its song-” Taari aankhni afini”, sung by Dilip Dholakia with music by Ajit Merchant. His film Mordhwaj-52 was the Debut film for MD Narayan Dutt. Balwant Bhatt died on 7-2-1965,at Bombay.

Film Snehlata -36 was also made in Gujarati. In those days, the regional language film industries were not that developed, so bilingual film making was quite common. The film seems to have had 7 songs, but HFGK mentions only 4 songs-all sung by Rajkumari, who was a regular singer in that period. The film ‘which was also known as ‘Bharat ki Devi’ had all songs written jointly by brothers Vijay and Shankar Bhatt.

Blog Day : 3812 Post No. : 14810

Today, the December 25, 2018 is the Remembrance Day of music Director, Eric Roberts akka Vinod (22/05/1922 – 25/12/1959) who left for the heavenly abode on this day of 1959 at a prime age of 37. Vinod has been one of my favourite music directors who mostly followed the ‘Punjabi Ang’ of music, introduced in Hindi films by Pandit Amarnath. He composed top class melodies in Hindi and Punjabi films. His musical career started with ‘Khamosh Nighaaen’ (1946) and composed music for 28 Hindi films till his death in 1959.

Vinod came into prominence in his filmy musical career with his excellent song compositions in ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949). One of songs from this film laara lappa laara lappa laai rakhdaa became very popular. Both Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar sang for Vinod for the first time in this film. Despite this success, he had to share music direction in a few subsequent films with other music directors. Most of such films failed at the box office despite his good music. With this kind of his filmy career, he joined the list of talented music directors who could not sustain their successes to reach in the top bracket of the music directors.

In 1949, music director Shankar-Jaikishan made a successful debut in ‘Barsaat’ (1949). S D Burman had his first major success as a music director in ‘Shabnam’ (1949). Both these music directors consolidated their positions in the Hindi film industry after their first success. One of the main reasons for their long successful careers, in my view, was that both of them were selective in choosing the films, that too from the top banners. As against these, Vinod, after the success of ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949), continued to be mostly associated with ‘B’ grade film banners. Though a few of such films were moderately successful, it was not enough to attract attention from the top banners. In Hindi film industry, if one gets branded as a music director of ‘B’ grade films, it is very difficult to get entry into the top banners.

A few select songs among others composed by Viond are listed below as my favourite:

Song Singer(s) Movie (year)
badla nazar aata hai Satish Batra-Premlata ‘Taara’ (1949)
ye shokh sitaare Lata-Rafi ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949)
taare wohi hain chaand wohi hai Lata ‘Anmol Ratan’ (1950)
kaaga re jaa re jaa re Lata ‘Wafa’ (1950)
nighaahon ko jab aa gayaa musukuraana Sulochana Kadam ‘For Ladies Only’ (1951)
mere barbaadiyon per muskuraane aa gaya koi Lata ‘Sabzbaagh’ (1951)
chupke se na jaa o man ke raaja Asha Bhonsle ‘Aag Ka Dariya’ (1953)
mere dil jhoom zara S Balbir ‘Mumtaz Mahal’ (1957)

Among the male playback singers, who sang for Vinod, Mohammed Rafi topped the list with 33 songs. Among the female playback singers singing for him, Asha Bhonsle took the honour of singing the maximum songs (82).

As a tribute to music director, Vinod, I have selected one of my favourite songs ‘ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do’ rendered by Asha Bhonsle for the film ‘For Ladies Only’ (1951). The film seems to have got delayed as I remember to have seen an advertisement of this film in an old film magazine of 1949 as ‘Titlee’. Probably, at the time of the censor certification, the name of the film was changed to ‘For Ladies Only’. The film was directed by Vedi. The star cast included Kuldeep Kaur, Kamal Mehra, Satish, Sadhana Bose, Rupa Verman etc.

There were 8 songs in the film with 6 lyricists and 8 playback singers. The song under discussion was written in a ghazal format by ‘Sharma’ which I presume to be Buta Ram Sharma. Narendra Sharma never wrote ghazals for the films and Kidar Sharma rarely wrote lyrics for other banners.


Song-Ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do (For Ladies Only)(1951) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do
ulfat ko phir hai kiska sahaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

bulbul chaman ko chhod bayabaan jaa rahe
bayabaan mein jaa rahen
kaise karoge tum ye gawaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

jinse thhi zindagi wo hi jab gair ho chale
jab gair ho chale
phir aur kaun hoga hamaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

dil ro raha hai apni tasalli ke vaaste
tasalli ke vaaste
jaaye kahaan ye dard ka maara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

“Amar Jyoti”(1965) was directed by Raman Desai for Bombay Movietone, Bombay. This fantasy movie had L Vijaylaxmi, Mahipal, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Sapru, Sarla devi, Gopi Krishn etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Amar Jyoti”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Today 24th December 2018 is the ninety-fourth (24 December 1924 – 31 July 1980) birth anniversary of the ‘divine voice’ Mohammad Rafi Saab.
And today 24th December also happens to be the birth anniversary actor Mahipal (24 December 1919 – 15 May 2005).
I have very deep respect and great admiration for both of them in my heart and it will be until we are associated with Hindi Films and Hindi Film Music.

It was in 2017 that I came to know about the birth anniversary of Mahipal ji and its falling on 24th December (because of this article on BHD by our own Shishir ji) – the same date – we have birth anniversary of Rafi Saab. So, last year I presented a song from the movie ‘Maharaja Vikram-1966’ here.

This year too I wish to present a song and thus was looking a song sung by Rafi Saab and lip synced by Mahipal. I think most of the songs may be have already been covered and I was able to find a ‘duet’ sung by Rafi Saab and Sudha Malhotra and lip synced on screen by Mahipal and Anita Guha.

This song is from the 1957 movie ‘Pawanputra Hanuman’.

It was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Basant Pictures’. It was presented by Homi Wadia for ‘Wadia Brothers Productions’.

It had S.N. Tripathi, Mahipal, Anita Guha, B.M. Vyas, Krishna Kumari, Ratnamala, Heera Sawant, Indira Bansal, Korega, Amirbai Karnataki, Praveen Paul, Mumtaz, Master Prithvi, Helen, Kanchanmala, Shiela Vaz, Samar Roy, Dalpat, Sudesh, Ramshastri, Bhujbal Singh Uma Dutt, S.K. Singh, Shri Bhagwan, Ajit Kumar, R.S. Dubey, Abdullah, Yadav, Julian and others.

This movie had as many as ten songs composed by Chitragupta and written by G.S. Nepali (Six songs) and Saraswati Kumar Deepak (four songs).

Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, Mohmmad Rafi, Shamshad Begam, Sudha Malhotra and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is written by Gopal Singh Nepali.

Actually, I came across this song as a song from the movie ‘Hanuman Chalisa – 1969’ on YouTube. As I was not aware of the details of this movie, I asked for the movie page from HFGK Vol IV from my daughter. Going through the details as mentioned in HFGK it is mentions that: –
“As per information from the production house ‘Basant Pictures, Bombay’ (1) this film was a collection of some parts of the previous movies produced by them, (2) also including songs from those movies, (3) and this movie ‘Hanuman Chalisa-1969’ was not a full-length feature film.
That made me more curious to know about its songs (if any) presented on the blog and if the today’s song was already there.
From the list I could not found any songs on the blog and keep repeatedly searching for titles with ‘Hanuman Chalisa’… until I find a link on YT which mentions the name of the movie as ‘Pawanputra Hanuman-1957/ Hanuman Chalisa-1969’ for this song ‘mere Raam kahaan ho tum …’

Three songs from this movie ‘Pawanputra Hanuman-1957’ have already been posted on the blog wherein our two respected Seniors Arun ji and Sadanand ji have shared two and one posts respectively sharing songs of this movie.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song sung by Rafi Saab and Sudha Malhotra and performed on screen by Mahipal and Anita Guha.

Blog Day : 3811 Post No. : 14807

After yet another hiatus of a few months, I am back on the blog today (24 december 2018).

And I’m sure most people who know me here, will know why. 🙂

Yes, it is that big day for Hindi film music lovers all around the world today – it is the birth anniversary of Mohammad Rafi, or, as he is affectionately and reverentially referred to by many, Rafisaab.

And while I might miss out on writing on any other anniversary on this blog, this is one date I try my best to never miss. As I’ve said many times before, this is my very small, entirely insignificant, way of saying “thank you” to the person who has given me countless hours of happiness in my life.

Different people derive happiness from different things. For me, music has always been a core part of my existence for as long as I can remember. I often have a song on my lips – often sub-consciously. This has occasionally led to embarrassing situations but thankfully it has never affected my love or passion for music. And I think I’m in very good company on this one – there are so many people out there for whom music is an integral part of their daily lives.

This is also one big reason we are all here together on this blog. HFM lovers, from all parts of the world, in all age-groups, sharing their love for HFM.

And when we talk of HFM, especially during its golden age, it’s hard not to talk of Rafisaab.

This is why I write tributes to him at least twice a year. On his death anniversary, and on his birth anniversary. I do write about him on other occasions too, but if I miss out on either of these occasions, I feel I’m letting him down. For all that he has given me, can’t I even write a few words on these specific occasions to pay tribute to him?

So here I am today.

Now, what should I write?

I’ve written many posts here on Rafisaab and discussed my feelings about him. About his songs, his personality, how he managed to break in and find a special place in my heart and my life, at a time when Kishore Kumar was absolutely king. There’s nothing more I can write that will not be a repetition.

Yet, the sheer joy of writing about Rafisaab is so exhilarating that, at the risk of boring readers, I will share a few thoughts.

After all, when I watch videos of Jeetendra narrating his now-famous Deedar-e-Yaar experience with Rafisaab, or Shammi Kapoor narrating his “aasmaan se aaya farishta” story about Rafisaab, or SP Balasubramaniam talking about “deewana hua baadal”, I enjoy listening to these stories every single time. I know the stories inside out by now, but the passion and love with which these stories are narrated, is itself special for me.

It would surprise no one if I said that, as an early-1970s boy, the one male singer who was my universe at that time was Kishore Kumar. In those days I’d often listen to “current songs” – and naturally that meant his songs were playing everywhere, on every single radio programme, every single day.

Other singers like Mukesh and Manna Dey (and even Rafisaab) would also figure but almost like an exception. Kishore’s was easily THE most dominant male voice of the time.

I was very fond of Kishore Kumar – in my classroom in school, my friends would all invariably sing the latest Kishore songs.

Then one day, I think it was the afternoon 1.00-1.30 programme (I don’t remember its name), I happened to listen to an old song.

At that time I had only vaguely heard of that song. So I knew a few lines but I’d never heard its rendition before.

What was this song! What was this voice! Who was this singer!

I stood transfixed. Rongte khade ho gaye.

I knew it wasn’t Kishore. And when the announcer said “abhi aapne Mohammad Rafi ko film Baiju Baawra mein sunaa”, I realized that in my universe, the one where Kishore Kumar had until then occupied almost complete mindspace, I’d have to made room for another voice.

It wasn’t as if I hadn’t heard Rafisaab songs till then. Of course I had. But my mind had been so full of Kishore, that every other voice had been drowned out in the process. Hey, I was still a young boy then, so not particularly discerning.

That song was “o duniya ke rakhwaale”.

How I wanted to hold on to that song! To listen to it again. And again.

From the initial “bhagwaan” to the “rakhwaale, rakhwaale”, I didn’t know what hit me. The highs and lows, the peaking and the ebbing, the modulations, the way he sings “bhagwan” three times at the start – and each one is a different cry to God – there was no way this song was not going to make an impact on me.

Of course those were pre-internet days. I couldn’t just search for the song and play it again. ? And where I lived, I didn’t even have access to a music store – nor would I have been able to buy a cassette even if I’d wanted to.

At that time I could only hope that I’d get to listen to the song again. In fact, that was how things were in those days. You’d listen to a song, love it – and then hope it would come in a farmaish again. 🙂

From that moment onwards, I became a keen Rafisaab listener. I am sure the same songs that I might not have paid attention to earlier, suddenly began speaking to me. I distinctly remember songs like “suhaani raat dhal chuki” (a Vividh Bharati favourite 🙂 ) , “parbaton ke pedon par”, “ek dil ke tukde hazaar hue”, “ye teri saadgi”, amongst others.

Every single song I listened to, I fell in love with.

When I listened to “kar chale hum fida”, I had tears in my eyes. Many years later I saw the film but Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics, Madan Mohan’s music and Rafisaab’s voice – how can you remain impassive to that song?

When I listened to “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, it transported me to a different world. Again Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics are magical, and Rafisaab’s rendition elevates them to a different level altogether.

Another song I got to listen to, and was extremely fond of at that time (I still am!), was “karwaan guzar gaya”. I’ve always had a soft corner for good lyrics – and Neeraj’s lyrics, even by his high standards, are just amazing in this one.

I can reel off many more songs that I listened to – each one only further confirming to me that while Rafisaab might have had a decline in the early 70s, to even suggest that he was in any manner a lesser singer than Kishore Kumar was sheer lack of understanding of music.

My paternal grandmother, who didn’t know a word of Hindi, and didn’t know who Kishore Kumar or Rafisaab were, clearly had a discerning ear. We had a cassette of Abhimaan at home – it would play a lot. It would start with “meet na mila”, and while every song in the film is a gem in its own right, she’d always tell me to play THAT song. Yes, “teri bindiya re” – which is one of my favourite songs of the 1970s.

So this is how Rafisaab managed to break into my Kishore Kumar-dominated young mind. 🙂

And since then he has a permanent and very special place in my mind and heart. In my younger days I didn’t have access to much music other than via radio – now of course it has all changed. I spend hours listening to music, many of these hours listening to Rafisaab. No particular song or playlist – just randomly listening to his songs, one after another. One moment it could be “mere mehboob tujhe”, the next “tumhaari zulf ke saaye mein shaam”, the next “aye gulbadan”. Just listening to his voice gives me so much joy – just the way he joins in in “awaaz deke hamen tum bulao” is special for me. And the way he joins in the middle of “deewana mastaana hua dil” – it’s just so awesome!

So there’s the singer Rafisaab for me.

But my post would be incomplete if I limited it to just Rafisaab’s singing.

What makes him so much more special for me is the person he was. Obviously I never got to meet him, so this is secondhand, but there isn’t a single person who knew Rafisaab, who does not vouch for what a great human being he was. It wasn’t just his soft-spoken nature, he was kindness and generosity personified. He could easily have put on airs, he could have demanded a ransom price, such was his stature and such was the demand for his voice. Yet he was made of a different stock – “kuchh aur mitti ke hi baney the”. There wasn’t a single trace of arrogance or greed in him.

Rafisaab did not hesitate to work with upcoming composers, giving them hits in the process. He knew their financial position and would even refuse to take more than just a token from them. Throughout his career, he believed that whatever he had achieved was due to the grace of God – he would often point upwards when someone praised his singing.

No wonder then that Rafisaab is remembered today not just for his voice but also for the person he was. How often do you come across a person like this?

No wonder that on his death, crowds thronged the streets of Bombay to pay respect to him. This, despite pouring rain.

Is it any wonder that I am such a big fan of Rafisaab? And I can safely say there are many who are much bigger fans of him – main to kuchh bhi nahin.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a special occasion – so I’ve picked a song that I heard for the first time today.

I wanted to pick a song from Rafisaab’s supposedly “lean” period. For some reason, this period fascinates me. I’ve always supported the underdog – so if someone tells me that a particular singer had a bad patch in a particular phase of his career, there’s a good chance I’ll listen to songs of that singer in that particular phase. 🙂 It’s just the way my mind works.

I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it today.

It has trademark Rafisaab elements in it – and is a pleasant song to listen to. I didn’t want a sad song for the occasion, after all it’s his birth anniversary.

It’s from a film, Gunaah Aur Kanoon (1970). I have no clue about the film but going by the name, it sounds a bit like Crime and Punishment. 🙂

The song itself is definitely worth a listen. Music is by Sapan Jagmohan, who might not have been in the top rung of composers, but have created quite a few memorable tunes of their own.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did while listening to it the first time. I have already listened to it a few times now. 🙂


Song-Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin(Gunaah Aur Kanoon) (1970) Singer-Mohammad Rafi, Lyrics-Anwar Farrukhabadi, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Jo baat janam le le dil mein
Jo baat janam le le dil mein
Us baat ka kyun izhaar na ho
Us baat ka kyun izhaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Maana ke jawaani hai aayi
tauba
Ye nasheeli angdaayi ee ee
Maana ke jawaani hai aayi
Tauba ye nasheeli angdaayi
Thham thham ke baras ae shokh ghata
Thham thham ke baras ae shokh ghata
Jazbaat ki hadd se paar na ho
Jazbaat ki hadd se paar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Ye shaam ki surkhi gaalon par
Haaye
Ye raat ka aanchal baalon par r
Ye shaam ki surkhi gaalon par
Ye raat ka aanchal baalon par
Pad jaaye nazar tujh par jiski
Haaye pad jaaye nazar tujh par jiski
Kaise wo tera beemaar na ho
Kaise wo tera beemaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
