It is so heartening to see our beloved blog reaching yet another big milestone of 15000 songs being posted! Over a decade plus of hard work by all involved has made this possible but above all it has been Atul ji’s steadfast disciplined hard work which has led to it. I first of all congratulate him for this achievement. Your dedication, hard work and encouragement is always inspiring us. I have run out of hats to raise for all the wonderful work you have been doing here on this blog. May God always bless you and give you strength to achieve all your goals in your personal and official life.

I also wish to thank all the other contributors who have all become my friends during the journey of this blog. It has been a pleasure knowing you and Its always enjoyable meeting all of you. I think we should celebrate soon with a celebratory party Hangout (online or offline) with all of us meeting in spite of the time zone differences which separate us but love for music at the end of the day never fails to join us. Keep smiling always and be ever happy all of you!

For today’s song post I have chosen a song I was in love with when the movie released. This movie had some lovely songs under the baton of ace composers Jatin-Lalit and it makes its debut on the blog with this song. The movie was directed by a favourite director of mine, Kundan Shah whose film ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ (1983) is a delightful watch for all avid movie lovers even today years after its release (I shudder to hear talks of it being remade. Classics should be best left untouched. ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai’ (1980) was touched just last week and all critics unanimously agree it was best left untouched). The movie’s name of course is ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ which was a 1994 release. Many big names and soon to be big names participated in this delightful movie whose main details are as given below:-

Movie: Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994)
Director: Kundan Shah
Starcast: Shahrukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Deepak Tijori, Rita Bhaduri, Satish Shah, Anjan Srivastav, Goga Kapoor, Tiku Talsania, Ravi Baswani, Naseeruddin Shah, Juhi Chawla
Producer: Vikram Mehrohtra
Banner: Shemaroo Video Pvt Ltd
Release Date: February 25th 1994

This is how Wikipedia describes the movie:-

‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ (lit. Sometimes yes, Sometimes no) is a  1994 Indian Hindi romantic coming-of-age comedy film directed by Kundan Shah and starring Shah Rukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamurthy, Deepak Tijori and Naseeruddin Shah. This is one of the rare mainstream Hindi movies in which the hero plays the role of a loser. It is widely considered to be one of Shah Rukh Khan’s best performances, and he has said that it is his favourite film. He received the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance for his role. Produced on a budget of ₹1.4 crore, the film grossed ₹5.5 crore, equivalent to ₹84 crore (US$12 million) adjusted for inflation. At the 39th Filmfare Awards, it won the Critics Award for Best Film and the Critics Award for Best Actor for Shah Rukh Khan, who also won the Best Actor award for ‘Baazigar’ (1993) at the same ceremony.

I still remember seeing this slice of life movie in a theatre. I was now old enough to go to a theatre by myself and I made the most of the period watching many of the good movies of the period. In spite of the movie being released during exam times, my parents permitted me to watch it and I enjoyed watching it. All the actors in the movie had done really good roles. Suchitra Krishnamurthy had made her acting debut with the movie. Many critics didn’t like her acting but I felt she tried her best giving a genuineness to the performance. She didn’t appear in much movies due to her personal life decisions but I have liked the few and far between movies she did. During the pop boom, she had done a handful of albums too whose cassettes I have enjoyed in those days. ‘Dole Dole’ was a particular favourite with me. Deepak Tijori who was the other lead also did a wonderful role. He was a competent actor and I feel its sad that we have not been able to see much of him for many years. He’s been more active in the field of direction though. As it is I love movies set in Goa and have thoroughly enjoyed movies set there.

Not many may be knowing that this movie was also remade in Telugu by the name Swapnalokam (1999) starring Jagapathi Babu.

Here is the plot of the movie:-

Sunil (Shah Rukh Khan) is woken up from his dream of marrying the girl he loves, Anna (Suchitra Krishnamurthy), by Sunil’s sister (Sadiya Siddiqui). Sunil is a happy-go-lucky scamp who loves music and is not interested in studies, which bothers his father, Vinayak (Anjan Srivastav). Sunil, Anna, and Chris (Deepak Tijori) are 3 members of a 6-person music band, who are looking to make it big. Anna rejoins the group after being away for a while, which makes Chris happy too, as he too loves Anna. After Anna reenters his life, Sunil begins to try and change his ways in order to get Anna to fall in love with him.

During a performance at a friend’s wedding, Sunil realizes that Anna and Chris have some chemistry between them. Sunil is devastated, so he decides to create a rift between Anna and Chris. Sunil eventually gets caught in his own web of lies. Anna, furious with Sunil for such a betrayal, slaps him and decides to never talk to Sunil ever after. Sunil is thrown out of the band for being a miscreant. However, as luck were to have it, fortune favours Sunil who saves the band from being heckled at a local club performance by putting on a stellar show, so the entire band forgives and forgets.

Meanwhile, Anna’s father has been giving thought to getting her settled in life and decides that Chris is worthy of the honour. He makes his intentions known to approach Chris’ parents with a proposal. However, Chris’ parents have other ideas and decide Chris’ marriage to their friend’s daughter. Anna and her family are dejected.

Sunil consoles Anna during this time and the tide slowly turns in his favour. Anna’s father, having realized that Sunil will love and take care of Anna, convinces Anna to marry Sunil. Sunil is overjoyed until he realizes Anna still loves Chris. Sunil decides to reunite the two and get them married. On the wedding day, as Chris and Anna are about to exchange rings, Chris’ ring slips out of his hand and rolls out of sight. Everybody starts searching for it. Sunil spots the ring but feigns ignorance, even as his younger sister gazes at him with a heavy heart. Eventually, Chris locates the ring and the couple gets married.

Just after the wedding, Sunil is shown sitting on the sidewalk, dejected and heartbroken. By happenstance, a random girl (Juhi Chawla in a guest appearance), who is lost and is seeking directions, approaches Sunil. Sometime later, Sunil and the girl are seen walking in the moonlight and talking merrily.

Anthony and Vasco, two criminals who are a part of the story, see Sunil with the new girl and break the fourth wall, saying that Sunil will be alright. The criminals hear the police siren and immediately scamper away as the credits roll.

If you’ve not watched the movie yet, do catch this feel good movie. It had some of the best performances and the late Renu Saluja had also edited it well. I heard sometime back that Shah Rukh Khan has bought the rights of the movie. Don’t know if he’s planning to remake it but its definitely one of his best and sincere performances. The movie was a sleeper hit and made more than double (nearly 5.5 crores) on the box office in those days.

The song’s lyrics have been very thoughtfully written by Majrooh Sultanpuri sahib and sung lovingly by the flavour of those days, Kumar Sanu. The combination of Majrooh Sahib with Jatin-Lalit was one of the top combinations for me in the 1990s. Just like the song, I pray that we never wake up from the suroor of good music we all live in all the time and keep singing songs of our love for music as well as each other.

Song – Ae Kaash Ke Ab Hosh Mein Hum Aane Na Paayen (Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa) (1994) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Jatin Lalit

Lyrics

ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane naa paayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane naa paayen

khilti mehakti
yeh zulfon ki shaam
hanste khanakte
yeh hothhon ke jaam
khilti mehakti
yeh zulfon ki shaam
hanste khanakte
yeh hothon ke jaam
aa jhoom ke saaz uthhayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen

laa laa laall laa
laalla laa laa laa
laa laa laa laa la laall laa

ho bas agar tum hamaare sanam
hum to sitaaron pe rakh den kadam
ho bas agar tum hamaare sanam
hum to sitaaron pe rakh den kadam
saaraa jahaan bhool jaayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen

ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें

खिलती महकती
ये ज़ुल्फों की शाम
हँसते खनकते
ये होंठों के जाम
खिलती महकती
ये ज़ुल्फों की शाम
हँसते खनकते
ये होंठों के जाम
आ झूम के साज़ उठायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें

ला ला लाल्ला ला
लाल्ला ला ला ला
ला ला ला ला ल लाल्ल ला

हो बस अगर तुम हमारे सनम
हम तो सितारों पे रख दें कदम
हो बस अगर तुम हमारे सनम
हम तो सितारों पे रख दें कदम
सारा जहाँ भूल जायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें

Gajendra Ji,
Thanks for the celebration post. Yes, thru ASAD we have made new friends. Met few in person. Rest thru electronic media.. I feel like a novice ( in HFM) when I read many of the posts. I have found many gems ( songs) thru ASAD
I liked this movie. A good song for the post. I also immensely liked ‘Woh to hai albela;;;” from the movie.

Regards

Thanks Shenoy ji. I also love that song but it wouldn’t have suited the occasion!

Gajendra ji,

Your celebration post reminded me of my first encounter with Shah Rukh Khan (of course, on the screen) when I watched this film in the theater. But I went to watch the film especially for the direction of Kundan Shah whom I adored as a director after watching his debut film ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’ (1983 and the TV Serial ‘Ye Hai Jo Zindagi’ (1984-85).

In my view, Shah Rukh Khan did not surpass his acting ability displayed in this film in any of his subsequent films. Probably,his acting in ‘Swades’ (2004) may be the next best.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks Sir. Glad it reminded you of a good time at the cinema. Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi is a real classic. We need more such comic serials and indeed lovely writing.
Yes Swades is another brilliant effort though I consider Chak De India as equally good.

Dear Gajendra ji,
Thanks for your post here.
My request to you is not to make your posts an Yearly event. I know about the deep and exhaustive knowledge that you have about films and its music and it will not be too much to ask for your more frequent posts here, so that we all can benefit from your experience and knowledge.
Every person is different and has his own likings. When more people contribute here, a variety of information can be shared.
You have the necessary writing and storytelling skill. I know that getting enough time may be a problem, since you are working and are involved in so many activities at a time.
However, I will look forward to more of your posts here. One advantage for me is that I get automatically exposed to newer songs, which otherwise is not possible.
One big benefit of being an Atulite is getting exposure to variety of music and songs from recent films.

It is such a typical Kumar Sanu song from the times. Listening to this after ages. Good to see Suchitra Krishnamoorthy. SRK actually looks young and nice :).

@Gajendra ji – thank you very much for this post. Always happy to read your posts. Please do keep posting as possible.
Thank you for all your best wishes to us too.
I had watched this movie when it was released and liked it very much. The music of this movie was also very nice and I liked its songs very much. As your rightly said meeting our team members in person was always a great experience and it all happened because of this blog only. I fondly remember meeting you at Bengaluru and Mumbai gang out.
Congratulating you and all on this ‘Blog 15k milestone’ and wishing that ‘behoshi ka ye safar yoon hi chalta rahe, aur geet-sangeet ka ye nasha yoon hi chadhta rahe’
Thanks again for this post !!!

Gajendra ji,

Thanks for the post. One of the few films I have seen in theatres.
Beaming innocence by the lead actors.
And then, let me not stop myself from writing this, I was expecting a Shamshad Begum post from you.

Gajendra ji ,

Nice reminder, flashback to the good old days of Anand Milind, Nadeem Shravan and Jatin Lalit. There was a while when these ruled the music industry Sameer being lyricist and Kumar Sanu Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik as main singers. I know Jatin Lalit combined with Majrooh Sahab too , but don’t if the other two also worked with Majrooh Sahab.

Regards.

Mazaa aa gaya ye post padh ke, Gajendraji.
And a lovely song to go with it.

It has been a great pleasure meeting and knowing you, Gajendraji. I know I haven’t attended your Sunday get-togethers (and even missed the recent RMIM meet), but I’m somewhat tied to home. Have been for years now.

Coming to this song, I’ve seen this movie – indeed it is worth a watch, for its somewhat hatke storyline, and very good performances. I have seen almost all SRK films of the 1990s (even movies like Guddu and Ram Jaane :-)). But I’ve still to see Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham (2001). 🙂

I didn’t know that “Albert Pinto….” has been remade. Really? And they’re planning to remake JBDY? No way! It deserves to be in its own special place, without anyone messing with it.
