Hullo Atuldom

2nd June 1988. 33 years ago, Raj Kapoor who was also called the greatest Showman, bid adieu to this mortal world.

He was first an actor who turned a filmmaker early in his career. It is said that he had done roles as a child actor in the late ’30s, but his first adult role happened in 1947 in ‘Neel Kamal’ with Madubala as his heroine. Within a year he turned a producer-director, set up the RK Banner and came up with “Aag” and went on to produce and direct nine more movies – the last of which was “Ram Teri Ganga Maili”. Additionally he produced ‘Biwi-o-biwi’, ‘Dharam Karam’, ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’, ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hain’, ‘Ab Dilli Door Nahin’, ‘Jaagte Raho’, Boot Polish’, ‘Aah’ i.e. the total output of RK banner during Raj Kapoor’s lifetime was 18. His sons Randhir- Rishi- Rajeev tried to keep the legacy of the banner alive and made a few more movies.

Of the movies that RK Banner produced in the ’70s two were directed by Randhir Kapoor viz. ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ and ‘Dharam Karam’.

“Kal Aaj Aur Kal” had a lot of interesting aspects associated with it. (1) It was the acting and direction debut of Randhir Kapoor. (2)It had three generations of the family :- grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor, father Raj Kapoor and Randhir kapoor. (3) It marked the last acting assignment of Prithviraj Kapoor and I have read somewhere that he dubbed for the movie almost from his death-bed. (3) The movie starred Raj Kapoor’s future daughter-in-law Babita. (4) This was the last RK movie for which Shankar- Jaikishan gave music. Apparently Jaikishan had completed recording the music for this movie before he passed away.

Mehmood gave a tribute to the RK family in a song from “Humjoli” (1970) when he played the grandfather, father and (modern) son.

KAAK had six songs of which the blog has four songs. Today’s song shows Raj Kapoor as the father of a stubborn young son and son of stubborn old father. He is torn between his love for his father and son. He does not want to take sides in the tug-of-war of the two generations and both father and son have asked him to choose who is more important. We have Raj Kapoor expressing all his emotions through his beautiful light-eyes (remember the reference to those eyes in the song “masti bhara hain sama”.)

The song is written by Neeraj and sung by Manna Dey.

Song-Dekhiye to kya ajeeb haal hai (Kal Aaj aul Kal)(1971) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Neeraj, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai
sochiye toh kya ajeeb baat hai ae ae
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai

ek daal iss tarah phooli phali
ek ek paat phool ban gaya
ek daal iss tarah phooli phali
ek ek paat phool ban gaya
ek daal iss qadar magar luti
ek ek phool dhool ban gaya
aaj aur kal ki dhoop chhaanv mein aen
iss liye samay ke soone gaanv mein
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai

ek hawa chali ke khil uthha chaman
ek hawa chali ke sab ujad gaya
ek kadam uthaa ke raah mil gayi
ek kadam uthaa ke path bichhad gaya
ek hawa chali ke khil uthha chaman
ek hawa chali ke sab ujad gaya
ek kadam uthaa ke raah mil gayi
ek kadam uthaa ke path bichhad gaya
iss liye dilon ki jeet haar mein aen
iss liye kisi ke preet pyaar mein aen
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai ae
sochiye toh kya ajeeb baat hai ae ae
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye to kya ajeeb haal hai
hmm hmm h hmm hmm
aa aa aa aa aa
