Forgotten Songs of Bappi Lahiri – Song # 2
————————————————————

For my second song of this series, I wanted to choose a song sung by Bappi Da himself. I was searching the movie and song databases, when I came across this haunting melody.

The years 1976 and 1977, amongst some others, are very special in my life. I had finished my school (SSC) and had entered the collage (Intermediate/11th & 12th) life. You can imagine a teen, who has just finished his, very strict, catholic convent school, entering the next phase in his life (collegian life, where there were no compulsions on wearing the uniforms, carrying a school bag and tiffin (lunch) or dabba, as it was called in my mother tongue (Marathi).

There were lots of other things which were not compulsory as well. I’ll leave it to your own imagination or experience. But the two most important things which I liked were, one – No Monitoring to check if the students attended the collage every day and two – there were 3 theatres/Cinema Halls next to my collage (a total of 9 theatres/cinemas with a radius of 2 – 3 kms.

Another unique thing was that my collage was a co-educational institution, whereas my school was a Boys Only convent. I was quite excited about this fact but came to understand soon enough that I was extremely shy when talking to any girl. Thus, movies were my only source of entertainment.

There were some very good movies released in those years which were block-busters like Kabhi Kabhie, Naagin, Adalat, Mehbooba, Kallicharan, Dharam Veer, AAA, etc. During those years, one young romantic pair was quite popular and that was Sachin & Sarikaa. This pair beczme a big hit in those days due to the stupendous success of Geet Gaata Chal (1975). Some of the other movies where they were paired in leading roles were Shyam Tere Kitne Naam, Raksha Bandhan, Zid, Madhu Malti, etc.

One more movie where they acted in romantic lead roles was Pratima Aur Payal released in 1977. My today’s song is a very haunting melody composed and sung by Bappi Lahiri for this movie. I have seen this movie but the memory is very vague about the story line. I only remember that it is told in a flash back about sculptor and a dancer. The story is told to Seema and Vikas – two lovers who bear striking resemblance to Manu, the sculptor and Kala, the dancer, who die a century earlier, in each other’s’ arms.

The movie directed by Sharan Aggarwal for producer B. K. Agarwal, under the banner Shivam Pictures, Bombay. The songs were penned by Rajkavi Inderjit Singh Tulsi, Shiv Kumar Saroj, Indeevar and Gauhar Kanpuri. The composer was Bappi Lahiri. The movie starred Sachin, Sarika, Om Shivpuri, Rita Bhaduri, etc.

I have been unable to locate the video of either the movie or the song being uploaded. Only audio in uploaded.

Today’s song “Soona Hai Jeevan Mera” is composed and sung by Bappi Lahiri and penned by Shiv Kumar Saroj.

I am not familiar with this song and do not also remember to have heard it earlier. Like the verses and the composition too. I have not watched this movie, but I was aware of this ‘title’ thanks to HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).
Thanks Satyajit ji for the post and introducing us this forgotten song.
Regards,
* (@ Satyajit ji – so there are two Bappi Lahiri ‘series’ under going now one you – for – forgotten songs and one by me for some of his songs which I like very much and from the ‘lot’ of ‘known songs’ 🙂 )
