(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#1)

Welcome all, to this post which is another of those posts of mine that was planned way back (in February 2019, to be precise)when I presented a song from the 1977 movie ‘Paapi’.

Music for this movie ‘Paapi-1977’ was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Though I had not watched this movie ‘Paapi-1977’, I liked the song that I then presented. Today’s song, also by Bappi Lahiri, came up in the list of suggestions that appeared in ‘YouTube’ with that song.

One comments on YT on this song caught my attention. The comment was about the use of ‘flute & base guitar’ in the today’s song. When I listened to the song I was awestruck. I do not remember to have listened to this song any time before. And also, may be the movie it was from, wasn’t a successful movie this song may have been forgotten easily.

So, it was then that I decided to take up this song for presentation, and was looking for the right occasion. Later on, I decided to send it for posting on 27th November the birth day of composer, singer Bappi Lahiri (sources mentioned him as a dancer, disco musician, and actor and record producer too).

Bappi Lahiri was born on 27th November’1952 in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal to Aparesh Lahiri and Bansari Lahiri who themselves were accomplished Bengali singers and musicians. Both his parents also came from Jalpaiguri.

On 27th November’2019 Bappi Lahiri celebrated his sixty-seventh birthday!!!

Today we belatedly wishing him a ‘very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful musical life ahead’.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview), this year in 2019 he has completed fifty years in his film-music journey. He has many records on his name and also have been conferred by many many awards till now. And he is still going on – rocking.

The first Hindi movie he composed music was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.

I was never a big Bappi Lahiri fan, but I was actively considering writing about Bappi Lahiri compositions. The reason behind this was that here in our camp, we were listening to many of his songs (both as a composer and singer) during our regular parties and I realised that these songs were liked by many and they all have good music, particularly the ‘beats’ which people danced and enjoyed a lot. These were mainly the songs from his ‘disco era’.

One of my bosses particularly loved ‘Jeele le jeele le aayo aayo jeele le’ every time ‘bhaai ye gaana zaroor bajaana’. On one or two occasions when he was asking us to play some ‘English’ or ‘Kenyan’ music I brought him back to the songs of ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, ‘Disco Dancer’ or played other Bappi Lahiri songs.

‘Bambai se aaya mare dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was perhaps the song that first introduced me with the music of Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loud speakers or in orchestras.

Subsequently I got introduced to songs from ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc.
I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I had not watched these movies until now.

I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because they were played by my friends during the summer vacation of 1983 after our 10th board exams were over.

Bappi Lahiri had composed some nice songs in his pre-‘disco era’ that I was not aware of. Subsequently I have discovered a few such songs and I have shared afew of them on the blog.

For example, songs like ‘Ye naina ye kaajal’ from ‘Dil Se Mile Dil-1978’, ‘Sainyya bina ghar soona’ from ‘Aangan Ki Kali-1979’ etc. were shared by me long back.

After ‘Disco Dancer’ it was ‘Himmatwaala-1983’ which I watched with my younger brothers & cousins in the summer vacations (1983) and I liked few of its songs if not all.

Then there were movies where Bappi Lahiri composed songs for the movies from ‘South’ banners where Jeetendra was the main hero. From these movies I remember, ‘Jaani Dost-1983’, ‘Haisiyat-1984’, ‘Tohfaa-1984’ and of course I like all songs from ‘Sharaabi-1984’.
I also liked some of the songs from ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’ which I watched during my stay at Akola (1983-1985).

I didn’t like the songs from ‘Mawaali-1983’. I liked one or two songs from ‘Justice Chaudhary-1983’. I did not watch these movies.

During 1983-85 when I was studying in 11th-12th standard disco music was ruling the charts in India. But I was more inclined to the golden era of HFM then and Rajesh Khanna movies, so I lost the track of many Bappi Lahiri songs and may be even not liking some of them.

However, I like one or two songs from some of the Rajesh Khanna movies where Bappi Lahiri composed the music for them and which were released from 1984-1984 onwards.
In between during this decade i.e. 1981-1990 and onwards 1990 there are movies where I like some of the songs from the movies where Bappi Lahiri had composed the music for. But I am not listing them here all (and maybe I will be taking them in my posts in future on Bappi Da 😊).

So, for this post when I decided to present this song from the 1980 movie ‘Saboot’ I just thought to a look on the movies released in the decade of 1971-1980 and of which the music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

During the preparation of this list I came across many movies of this period when Bappi Da had created some musical gems, that failed to get popular as the movies failed at the box office. The song under discussion is a case in example. I also realized that I liked many of his songs but I may not have given that much attention to the songs composed by him before the ‘disco era’ or even after ‘1985-1986’.

Like, when I came a across the movie name ‘Ek Ladki Badnaam Si’ which was not released, and looked for its songs, I found that already one of its songs has been posted in a detailed post on Bappi Lahiri by Sudhir ji here.

So, instead of going into the other details I will come back to the list of movies where Bappi Lahiri has given music in the decade 1971-1980 starting in 1973 with ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’. Incidentally this movie was introduced on the blog by ‘yours junior’ 🙂 only.

(Also, I got an opportunity to introduce movies ‘Paapi-1977’, ‘Ek Baar Kaho-1980’, ‘Patitaa-1980’ earlier on the blog 🙂 )

‘Saboot-1980’ was directed Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay for ‘The Bharat Pictures, Madras’

It was presented by Abbasi Brothers. It was produced by Raaj Baweja and G.H. Navani.

It had Navin Nischol, Vidya Sinha, Kaajal Kiran, Om Shivpuri and Prem Chopra.

Vinod Mehra makes a friendly appearance in this movie.

While the other cast includes Padma Khanna, Rajendranath, Paintal, Narendranath, Mohan Sherry, Sudhir Dalvi, Amar Mrudulla, Roopesh Kumar, Gauri Varma, Maruti, Mohan Choti, Trilok Kapoor, Rajkishore, Raj Mehra, Darshan, Rajan Kapoor, Sunder Tinea, Moolchand, Sheikh, Jugnu, Birbal, Albela, Azad.

Story of this movie was written by J.K. Ahuja, and Omar Khayyam Saharanpuri wrote the dialogues. Screenplay was written by Kumar Ramsay.

Bal Korde was the editor of this movie and Shyam Ramsay was his co-editor.

This movie had total five songs (including one multiple version song) written by Amit Khanna. Music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Bappi Lahiri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.02.1980 with restricted viewing certificate.

With today’s song ‘Saboot-1980’ makes its debut on the blog.

There is one more song in this movie ‘Jeena bhi koi jeena hai, jab tak tera saath nahin’ which sounds familiar to me and I listened to it and liked it too. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar and is multiple version song.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song where in Kaajal Kiran is lip syncing to Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The song is picturised on Kaajal Kiran and Navin Nischol who seems to be a little hesitant first to the invitation from Kaajal Kiran, but surrenders in the end of the song.
Kajal Kiran or Sunita Kulkarni (her real name) which I became aware only recently celebrated her sixty-first birth anniversary on 18th October (born on 18.10.1958).
She became famous with her debut in ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin-1977’. And after that went on to act in many movies but none of them got the level of ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’. And very few of them were successful to an extent. She retired from the movie scene in around end eighties.

Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay the famous of the seven Ramsay brothers jointly directed this movie. F.U. Ramsay the famous Producer was their father.
Kumar Ramsay, Keshu Ramsay, Arjun Ramsay, Gangu Ramsay and Kiran Ramsay are the other five brothers among the seven Ramsay brothers.
They mainly produced and directed ‘Horror’ movies starting with ‘Do Gaz Zameen Ke Neeche-1972’.

Tulsi Ramsay (born on 29th July’1944) passed away last year on 13th December 2018. He directed many movies and also Producer, Production Designer and Writer.
Shyam Ramsay (born on 17.05.1952) who passed away recently on 18th September 2019 was also director of many movies other than that he was also Producer, editor and writer for many movies.
I think both of them also jointly directed many movies or many movies had the director name as ‘Ramsay Brothers’. I am not mentioning more about the films they produced or directed, because that will require another detailed post.

Coming back to today’s song, the lyrics are by Amit Khanna and music is composed by Bappi Lahiri. This lovely song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar…
