Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

zeher judaayi kaa peena pad jaaye toh
bichhad ke bhi hum ko jeena pad jaaye toh
zeher judayi kaa pina pad jaye toh

jaane kahaan honge

lekin jahaan honge
wahaan fariyaad karenge ae
tujhe yaad karenge

Please check the lyric ‘fariyaad’… it should be ‘par yaad’

जब हम जवाँ होंगे, जाने कहाँ होंगे
लेकिन जहाँ होंगे, वहाँ पर याद करेंगे
तुझे याद करेंगे

word ‘fariyaad’ makes no sense

जब हम जवाँ होंगे जाने कहाँ होंगे
लेकिन जहाँ होंगे वहाँ फरयाद करेंगे
तुझे याद करेंगे

You are right. It does sound like “पर याद”, which is more logical.

Looks like another of those songs that I have been giving my own lyrics. This one i wrote without listening to the song as such. It is one of those songs that are by-heart for me.
But of course, ‘फ़रियाद’ may also be right considering that ‘wherever i am i shall PRAY that i meet you’.

ऑडियो को पुनः सुने,
सम्पूर्ण गीत में जहाँ – जहाँ भी लताजी ने ये पंक्तियां गाईं हैं
“….लेकिन जहाँ होंगे वहाँ फरियाद करेंगे
तुझे याद करेंगे….”
वहाँ पर “फरियाद” शब्द ही उच्चारित हुआ है
सिर्फ एक जगह जब शब्बीर कुमार ने ये पंक्तियां गाईं हैं तब “फरियाद” की जगह “पर याद” उच्चारित हुआ है…।

गीत की स्क्रिप्ट में एक और सुधार करें।
तीसरे अंतरे में जब लताजी पहली पंक्ति पुनः दोहराती है तब “तेरे शबनमी ख्वाबों” की जगह “तेरे रेशमी ख्वाबों” गाती हैं…।
निश्चित तौर पर यह गायन की त्रुटि रही होगी…।

अपने किसी साक्षात्कार में एक बार गीतकार आनंद बख़्शी साहब ने बताया था कि उनका हमेशा प्रयास होता था कि गीत की रिकॉर्डिंग के दौरान स्वयं उपस्थित रहा जाए…ताकि गीत के शब्द या उच्चारण में कोई त्रुटि ना रहे…लेकिन इस गीत की इन विसंगतियों को देख लगता है कि या तो बख़्शी साहब रिकॉर्डिंग के दौरान ग़ैर-मौजूद रहे होंगे या फिर किसी अन्य वजह से गीत को पुनः रिकॉर्ड नहीं किया गया / जा सका हो…। अन्यथा फिल्मी गीतों में ऐसी विसंगतियों को असामान्य ही माना जाना चाहिए…।

Thank you Anekantji for confirming the existence of फ़रियाद in the song as also पर याद.
And also thank you for drawing attention to the विसंगतियां in this song.

About the discrepancies in the lyrics and rendition of this song by both singers :
1. The songs of this film were initially recorded with Shabbir Kumar and were meant to be re-recorded by Kishor Kumar later on. I have given the details in this post https://atulsongaday.me/2020/10/19/teri-tasweer-mil-gayi-teri-tasweer-mil-gayi/. It is quite possible that songs were recorded in some other female singer or singers, instead of Lata Mangeshkar, since this was meant to be a dummy recordings. So later on only female portions were re-recorded, which is also a possibility. A word could be changed in the recording stage, for its better meaning and sound. On the other hand I also remember reading some where ( possibly in the urdu magazine “Shama”) that the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Lata matched so well and sounded too good with each other, or something like it. I have noted a point that there are no lines in this films duets , where Lata and Shabbir are singing together.

2. About the word ‘fariyad ’ in the song, its use here is very much correct. Fariyad is used in the context of “ Shikwa- shikayat”. Shikayat, complaint, fariyad, petitions are all intermingled in this as this is “ a lament for the misfortune of missing the loved one”. Prayer to the almighty also, not in the legal sense.
In Hindi “Faryad” is m aybe used only in legal sense. In Urdu, even a beggar is called faryadi or sawaali.

I had also noted the words “Lekin jahan honge, wahan par yaad karenge” by Shabbir Kumar and thought it sounded so basic and atpataa. But thought that it is a aberration on the singers part.

I have heard the both audio and video of the song with reduced speed. Shabbir Kumar is singing the word ‘Faryad’ correctly, it is just sounding like ‘par yaad’ in the audio. It seems both Lata and Shabbir Kumar are singing it from the hindi script as ‘fariyad’.

So there is no confusion, the word is fariyad or faryad.

Good to remember Amrita Singh, in films like Naam, chamedli ki shaadi and Saaheb. She did the bold roles in commercial films during her time, like her mother Rehana Sultana.

Mother’s name is Ruksana sultana isn’t it?

I have confused her mother with Rehana sultana all these years ? Ok. My mistake, her mother is not Rehana Sultana the actor, but Rukhsana Sultana.
