Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 41
——————————————————————————————

1st August of 2009, ten years ago. Five songs had been posted that day. As many as 4 movies opened their accounts on the blog that day – the four debut movies being ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’ (1952), ‘Sabse Bada Rupaiya’ (1955), ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ (1957) and ’Laakhon Mein Ek’ (1971). The fifth film – ‘Bhabhi’ from 1957 had its 5th song posted that day.

The current status of these five films is that two of them – ‘Bhaabhi’ and ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ have since been yippeee’d. for the remaining 3 films, two songs are pending for each one of them. The following table gives the complete status, as of just prior to this post today. The second last column gives info about the film status as of ten years ago, and the last column gives the status, as of today.

Ruk Jaa Re Piyaa Sabse Bada Rupaiyya 1955 Deb 7 of 9
Tie Lagaa Ke Maana Janaab Ban Gaye Hero Bhaabhi 1957 5th Yippeee’d
Tum Kyaa Jaano Tumhaari Yaad Me Ham Kitna Roye Shin Shinaaki Bubbla Boo 1952 Deb 5 of 7
Sainyaa Kyon Aaye Mujhe Angdaayi Duniya Rang Rangeeli 1957 Deb Yippeee’d
Jogi O Jogi Arre Pyaar Me Kyaa Hogaa Laakhon Mein Ek 1971 Deb 3 of 5

Getting on to Ten-Year Challenge, I looked up the pending songs from the three films that are still awaiting yippeee status, and I have picked this song from the film ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’ of 1952.

This film is produced and directed by PL Santoshi, under his home banner of Santoshi Productions. The main cast of actors is listed as Rehana, Ranjan, Sadhana Bose, Veera, Baby Tabassum, Radha Kishan, Mumtaz Ali, Tiwari, Samson, Indu Pal, Shama Gulnar, Prabhu, Sarosh, Bingu, Goldstein, Mehmood, Senoor (parrot), Titi (cat).

The film has 7 songs which are penned by PL Santoshi and the music is composed by C Ramchandra. In the earlier posts, our dear Arun ji has dealt with the theme of the picture, its main artists and the issue of the film being banned by the govt, inspite of getting a ‘U’ certificate from the Censors. Interested readers may refer to the detailed posts by Arun ji, for the following songs – “Arey Baba. . Ye Hansi Baba. . Ye Khushi Baba. .” and, “Kuchh Chuhalen Hon Kuchh Charche Hon”.

Interesting to note that 1998, a TV serial with title ‘Cincinnati Bublaa Boo’ was telecast by Star Plus, over a period of 25 weeks – yes, ‘Shin Shinaaki’ and ‘Cincinnat’ sound very suspiciously close to each other. Cincinnati is a city in the US, and Shin Shinaaki is the name of the female lead in this fantasy story.

The song is crafted like a bhajan, and has very very philosophical flavor. Actually, the theme of this song is surprisingly quite profound – telling about a thief who lives inside, and does not allow the individual person to light the lamp of devotion. Tied with the bonds of karma, the person is not able to resist as this thief plunders the treasures of good will and bhakti, and keeps the self entangled in the web of this world. This thief is ‘maaya’, the illusory misconceptions and wrong understanding of this world, which hides the truth about this world, the self and the devotional relationship to the Almighty.

The verses of this song have a deep meaning, and are very well crafted. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar. A song that needs some attention as one listens to it.

With this song, the film ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’moves one step closer to Yippeee status. Now only one more song of this film remains to be posted here.

Song – Sai Re, Sai Re. . . Ghar Ghar Mein Ik Chor Sai  (Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo) (1952) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – PL Santoshi, MD – C Ramchandra

laakh kare koi zor

kaisa jaadu daala tujh pe
tu kuchh bhi na boley re
tu kuchh bhi na boley
tan mann baandh liye hain dono
tan mann baandh liye hain dono
baandh karam ki dor
saai ghar ghar mein ik chor
saai ghar ghar mein ik chor
saai re saai re
saai re saai re
ghar ghar mein ik chor
saai ghar ghar mein ik chor
saai ghar ghar mein ik chor
saai re. . .
