Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Welcome all to this seventh article in the series ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon’. When I took up this series, I thought I will try to share articles on regular basis at least monthly, and so that within a year or so the series will get completed.

However, it has been more than five years now and some articles which I initially planned are yet to come … so we continue. And, instead of moving to the next year i.e., 1981 from the last post which presented a song of 1980, we will be enjoying a song again from a 1980 movie of Rajesh Khanna.

This is because I wish to include today’s song in this series and I constantly felt that I should not move ahead without this lovely song. After all, ‘1980’ was a special year for Kaka and it was like a turning point in his career as after this he was back and had started delivering hits on regular intervals.

But before moving ahead we will have a look on the articles posted in this series so far,

SN Song
1) Haseenon mere paas aao
2) Mahaa shoonya ke mahaan vistaar mein
3) Baby ghar chalo, ghar tum bin hai soonaa
4) Chal chal aage nikal
5) Tum nahin maanoge
6) Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin

Today’s post is to pay our tributes to Rajesh Khanna on his birth anniversary. That way it is a big day on the blog specially for Rajesh Khanna fans (or people like me 😊).

Today 29th December’2020 is the seventy-eighth birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (Jatin Khanna – his original name). He was born on 29th December’1942 and passed away on 18th July’2012.
He would have turned seventy-eight had he been alive today.

Rajesh Khanna made his debut in Bollywood with the movie ‘Aakhri Khat’ in 1966. However, it was only after three years i.e., in 1969 that his movie ‘Aradhana’ got released and he rose to stardom and popularity, which nobody had witnessed and tasted before.

In 1969 there were six movies of Rajesh Khanna released and they were viz. ‘Aradhana’, ‘Bandhan’, ‘Do Raaste’, ‘Doli’, ‘Itefaq’ and ‘Khamoshi’.
So that was exactly more than fifty years ago now, and coming to think of the end of this year 2020 his movies released in ‘1970’ will become ‘fifty years old’ now.

In 1970 following movies of Rajesh Khanna were released;

SNo Movie Title Director
01 Aan Milo Sajna Mukul Dutt
02 Anand Hrishikesh Mukherjee
03 Kati Patang Shakti Samanta
04 Sachcha Jhootha Manmohan Desai
05 Safar Asit Sen
06 The Train Ravikant Nagaich

The next year i.e., ‘1971’ was another big year for him which saw seven of his movies releasing in the year viz. ‘Amar Prem’, ‘Andaz’, Chhoti Bahu’,’Dushman’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Maryada’, and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’.

Looking back at the movies of Rajesh Khanna released in these three consecutive years (1969-1970-1971) makes me to try and visualise how people were responding to his movies ? specially when we read about the ‘mass hysteria’ he created then, and people thronging outside his bungalow to get a ‘glimpse’ of him or ‘girls’ leaving their ‘lips’ on his car and if that was not sufficient, they were also writing him letters with their ‘blood’. All seems like reading a ‘fairy tale’. But that was how the country was under the ‘severe’ grip of ‘Kaka’s charisma’ then. Today nobody will believe that such things happened then. Only those who have witnessed and lived through those years will be able to share about how it was then?

I bet, even today, if all the above movies (and others in later years from 1972 onwards) are released back-to-back and if one watches them, he will definitely fall in love with Rajesh Khanna.

Other main thing associated with Rajesh Khanna’s movies was their songs. Almost all the movies (not all of the 1980s) have a very good music and some have given us the gems of the songs of Hindi Film Music then. The picturization of the ‘song sequences’ and Kaka’s performing on them with his charismatic style and jigs also made the songs special. Songs created by R.D. Burman-Anand Bakshi-Kishore Kumar will always be remembered in the history of HFM of that era.

If somebody happens to come across HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980), please do read the complimentary messages on the release of this ‘geet-kosh’.

Here is what Music Critic Raju Bharatan had said about this decade; (I am reproducing it below);

“The music we created lives” says Naushad Ali, “because it is music with a soul, a tradition.” Such music also lives because now there is the Hindi Film Geet Kosh for each song to come dancing before our eyes. And, I remember, it was Bishwa Nath Chattejee who, some 15 years back corrected some factual errors I had made in my ‘Forty years of Naushad’ story in “The Illustrated Weekly.” Also, some five years back, I remember basing almost my entire four-page article on Sachin Dev Burman on the SD Geet Kosh so painstakingly presented by Bishwa Nath Chatterjee in his ‘Saurabh-77’.
I have therefore no doubt that Bishwanath will do a similar thorough job on the 1971-1980 HFGK. This 1971-1980 decade, in my opinion, is the most important Geet Kosh for our record, since this was the decade in which our Film music underwent a metamorphosis. Browsing through this 1971-80 Geet Kosh, we are sure to get a composite idea of why our composers could not by 1980, call the tune the way they did in 1971, the year in which that Musical Superstar, Rajesh Khanna, rose to his peak. Even without looking at this Geet Kosh, I can testify that Bishwa Nath Chatterjee has done a momentous job. …. ….”

So, Kaka was a ‘Musical Superstar’ too and music of his movies always had to be good if not great always. Though, many of his movies of the eighties surrendered to the popular demand and the music produced was same as in the league of the other movies of those years. (That we will be discussing in the future posts under this series on the blog).

Today we enjoy a lovely song from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Bandish’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I remember this song since my childhood days as it used to play on radio for the promotion of this movie. I like this song very much though the other song of this movie ‘rang bhare mausam se rang churaake’ was more popular, I think.

Today’s song also happens to be picturized on Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini like the above song.

By the way, let us also have a look on the blog ten-years back this day. Here are the details of songs posted by our dear Atul ji on 29.12.2010 on the blog;

SN Song
1) Ham dono do premi duniya chhod chalen
2) Karwaten badalte rahen saari raat ham
3) Bye bye miss good night kal phir milenge
4) Rimjhim rimjhim dekho baras rahi raat
5) Pasand aa gayi ik kaafir haseena
6) Aayo re aayo re aayo re saawan aayo re
7) Aa jaao aa bhi jaao

So, we had seven posts in a single day – all Rajesh Khanna songs – all posts done by Atul ji, including two songs from ‘Bandhan-1969’. I think that makes many things clear and no body should have doubt now as who else other than me and Raja ji is the great fan of Rajesh Khanna. 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song and remember Kaka …

Song-Mere hosh le lo deewaana bana do (Bandish)(1980) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

mere hosh le ae lo o
deewaana banaa do
mere hosh le ae ae lo o
deewaana banaa do
koi baat chhedo
fasaana banaa do
mere hosh le ae lo o
deewaana banaa do
koi baat chhedo
fasaana banaa do

nazaaron ko dil ki kahaani sunaa kar
bahaaron ka mausam
suhaanaa banaa do
mere hosh le ae ae lo o
deewaana banaa do
koi baat chhedo
fasaana banaa do o

ye jee chaahta hai
zaraa jee ke dekhen
ye jee chaahta hai
zaraa jee ke dekhen
mohabbat ka meethhaa zehar
pee ke dekhen
mohabbat ka meethhaa zehar
pee ke dekhen

bahaanon ko chhodo
bahaana banaa do
koi baat chhedo
fasaana banaa do
mere hosh le ae ae lo o
deewaana banaa do

na yoon sharm se tum
nigaahen jhukaa lo o
mujhe zindagi do
mujhe maar daalo o
na yoon sharm se tum
nigaahen jhukaa lo o
mujhe zindagi do
mujhe maar daalo o
mujhe is nazar ka nisaahnaa banaa do
mere hosh le ae lo o
deewaana banaa do

jo tumne kahaa hai
jo hamne kahaa hai
jo tumne kahaa hai
jo hamne kahaa hai
zaraa socho thehro
ye sab kuchh nayaa hai
zaraa socho thehro
ye sab kuchh nayaa hai

naye pyaar ko tum
puaanaa banaa do
koi baat chhedo
fasaana banaa do
mere hosh le lo o
deewaana banaa do
koi baat chhedo
fasaana banaa do

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
————————————–

मेरे होश ले ए लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो
मेरे होश ले ए ए लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो
कोई बात छेड़ो
फ़साना बना दो
मेरे होश ले ए लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो
कोई बात छेड़ो
फ़साना बना दो

नजारों को दिल की कहानी सुना कर
बहारों का मौसम
सुहाना बना दो
मेरे होश ले ए लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो
कोई बात छेड़ो
फ़साना बना दो ओ

ये जी चाहता है
ज़रा जी के देखें
ये जी चाहता है
ज़रा जी के देखें
मोहब्बत का मीठा
ज़हर पी के देखें
मोहब्बत का मीठा
ज़हर पी के देखें

बहानों को छोडो
बहाना बना दो
कोई बात छेड़ो
फ़साना बना दो
मेरे होश ले ए ए लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो

न यूं शर्म से तुम
निगाहें झुका लो ओ
मुझे ज़िन्दगी दो
मुझे मार डालो ओ
न यूं शर्म से तुम
निगाहें झुका लो ओ
मुझे ज़िन्दगी दो
मुझे मार डालो ओ
मुझे इस नज़र का निशाना बना दो
मेरे होश ले ए लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो

जो तुमने कहा है
जो हमने कहा है
जो तुमने कहा है
जो हमने कहा है
ज़रा सोचो ठहरो
ये सबकुछ नया है
ज़रा सोचो ठहरो
ये सबकुछ नया है

नए प्यार को तुम
पुराना बना दो
कोई बात छेड़ो
फ़साना बना दो
मेरे होश ले लो ओ
दीवाना बना दो
कोई बात छेड़ो
फ़साना बना दो
