#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 136 # A tribute to lyricist Verma Malik & Rishi Kapoor#
——————————————-————————————————-—

Today 30th April’2021 is the first ‘Remembrance Day’ of actor Rishi Kapoor. He was born 04th September 1952 and passed away on 30th April 2020 at the age of sixty-seven only.

When I was a growing child in the seventies Rishi Kapoor was a rising star and had started his film career with the 1973 movie ‘Bobby’. I must be five years old then. And as I have mentioned in one of my earlier articles, I had not watched this movie. Maybe I have watched few songs of this movie on TV. Then there were movies like ‘Rafoo Chakkar’, ‘Badalte Rishtey’, ‘Raajaa’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, ‘Jhoothha Kahin Ka’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane’ etc, then ‘Naseeb’’ ‘Ye Waadaa Rahaa’, ‘Karz’, ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhaanaa Hai’ and others which are a part of nostalgia of my growing years. I am not going to list all of them here. But I would like to mention few of his movies which I watched as a grown-up boy, ‘Saagar’, ‘Chaandni’, ‘Bol Radha Bol’, ‘Deewaanaa’, ‘Heena’ etc which I watched during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan).

In the recent years I watched his ‘102 not out’ on TV after his death.

As I mentioned above his movies are part of my growing years and will always be remembered whenever Hindi movies of the seventies-eighties’ are discussed.

He was very active in his personal life too and he spoke his mind on many issues on social media like twitter.

He was smiling even on the day he was hospitalized as we have seen in a video in circulation in media after his hospitalization or just before the night that he left us.

He lived his life to the fullest and his smiling face can never be forgotten.

For today’s occasion I am presenting a song which is a background song from the movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’. If we see the types of roles Rishi Kapoor played on screen and his personal life, he was always a ‘Zindaa Dil’ person.

Let us have a look on the list of movies released in ‘1975’ having actor Rishi Kapoor acted in them.

S. No Name of the movie Actress Passed by Censor Board
01 Khel Khel Mein Neetu Singh 13.05.1975
02 Raajaa Sulakshana Pandit 17.11.1975
03 Rafoo Chakkar Neetu Singh 02.01.1975
04 Zindaa Dil Neetu Singh 15.10.1975

(I sincerely hope that I have not missed any movie in above list)

Today’s song is written by lyricist Verma Malik. We remember him too and pay our homage to him. His ninety-sixth birth anniversary passed on 13th April’2021.
He was born on 13th April 1925 and left this world on 15 March 2009.

Today’s wonderful song also serves as our tribute to him.

Coming back to the today’s movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’, it was directed by Sikander Khanna for ‘S.B. Films International, Bombay’.

It had Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Zahira, Pran, I.S. Johar, Roopesh Kumar, Rajesh Lahar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, C.S. Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Padma Chauhan, Rajrani, Uma Khosla, Master Shailesh, Master Rocky, Baby Fatima, Meenakshi, Goga, Dham Mota, Ghanshyam, Manohar Azad, and K.D. Shorey, Raja Duggal and Sikander Khanna in special appearance.

This was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1975.

This movie had five songs penned by Verma Malik and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi. I guess that this song appears in the movie in parts. HFGK Vol-V mentions this song as one song only. Video for all the parts of this song seems to be un-available.

In the year ‘1975’ Verma Malik wrote lyrics for the following movies.

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aandolan Jaidev
02 Apne Dushman Kalyanji-Anandji
03 Chori Mera Kaam Kalyanji-Anandji
04 Do Jhooth Shankar-Jaikishan
05 Monto Kalyanji-Anandji
06 Raftaar Sonik-Omi
07 Sanyaasi Shankar-Jaikishan
08 Zindaa Dil Laxmikant-Pyarelal
09 Zorro Kalyanji-Anandji

From the songs penned by him in the above movies, only one song made it to the final of Binaca geetmala 1975. It was a song from ‘Sanyaasi-1975’ and it was was at number thirty-two. However, the top two songs of the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ 1975 were written by Verma Malik. They were from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’.

Let us now listen to today’s song (a philosophical song) and pay our tributes to lyricist Verma Malik and actor Rishi Kapoor…

Today’s song, which I guess is played in parts in the movie, are available in audio in several versions. I have selected a version that contains all stanzas .

Song-Zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai (Zinda Dil)(1975)Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

Lyrics

Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aaaa aa

Hanskar har mushkil apnaa
Duniyaa kaa yahi asool
Khilkar jab tak kali hanse naa
Tab tak bane naa phool
Hanste chehre ke sab saathi
Rone ko saath naa koyee
Hansne waalaa bane sitaaraa
Roye to paanv ki dhool
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

Ik din maut aayegi sabko
Aaj nahin to kal hai
Kisi ki khaatir mar jaana
Ye baat badi mushkil hai
Sadiyon tak wo rahegaa amar
Jo auron pe huaa nichhaawar
Mar kar bhi zindaa rahtaa hai
Wo hi to zindaa dil hai
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa

Pee jaa aankh ke aansu inko
Palkon pe naa tol
Tapak pade jo dharti pe to
Jayegi dharti dol
Jis jeewan mein dukh naa aaye
Wo jeewan bhi kyaa hai
Kabhi nahin Zindaa dil hotey
Gham se daanwaadol
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Phoolon se bhi chaand hai sundar
Chaand se sundar preet
Preet se sundar man apnaa
Man se sundar man ki jeet
Man ki jeet jalaa ke tu kar de
Raushan yaar kaa ghar
Preet mein jeena
Preet mein marnaa
Yahi hai prem ki reet
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Phoolon se bhi chaand hai sundar
Chaand se sundar preet
Preet se sundar man apnaa
Man se sundar man ki jeet

I know I have seen this movie (with my dad of course) at the time of its release. I vaguely recall that Rishi Kapoor’s character is always reprimanded by Pran, his father. And there is a brother of Rishi Kapoor who keeps taking advantage of the feelings between Rishi and Pran. Even before this song Pran asks Rishi to give up Zaheera for his brother.
Later, when Neetu enters the story, the brother again tries to spoil things for Rishi.
BTW, who is the actor who plays the brother ‘Kewal’?
@Avinashji, nice post.
