Blog Day :

4822 Post No. : 16600

With passage of time, we in this blog have become sedate and relaxed, as befits people who have matured (read aged). 🙂 Things that we found exciting in the past fail to enthuse us any longer. The sense of keen anticipation is no longer there. People in the past would begin to think and talk in advance about forthcoming important blog events. That is no longer the case.

Take the case of Blog Century posts. This regular event used to be a keenly anticipated event in the past, even when such an even used to occur once every fortnight. Today, this event has become more rare and happens once in two months (or more), and yet goes largely unnoticed.

But the important thing is, the blog never stops. The rate of posting of songs may have slowed down considerably, but we ensure that there is no DOT day in the blog. The last DOT day in the blog was on 25 December 2019. After that, the blog has not had a DOT day for last 645 days ! And that gives us the confidence and the feeling that the blog is always on the move.

Perhaps it is past experience, or may be it is my inherent laid back nature that these days I do not think much amout the century post till the last moment ! Only when I realise that the Century post is due and it has to be posted TODAY that I start wondering what song to select for the occasion.

Initially, I had considered a “new” song for the occasion and I had collected some details as well. But when I searched, I was unable to find those details that I had collected after spending several hours. So I had to postpone that song for some future occasion.

The songs covered in the guest posts that were covered during thelast few days gave me some idea what song I should pick as the century song. I had almost decided that the final song of “Hamraahi”(1945) should be the century song. This was a rare song. This was a song that grew up on me the more I listened to it. But then I realised that I needed to pick this song based on other consideration. There were two consideration. I noticed that a music director duo was on 299. I also noticed that the songs covered from movies of a particular year added up to 599. So, this called for a song from that year and composed by that music director duo. In addition, we recently had the birthday of Lata Mangeshkar. So this song should be sung by her.

Considering all that, I decided to combine all the above centuries to decide on the next blog century , viz Blog century number 166, or in other words , blog post number 16600.

This post, the blog post number 16600, covers a song from “Saawan Bhaadon”(1949). “Saawan Bhaadon”(1949) directed by Ravindra Dave for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Munawar Sultana, Omprakash, Indu, Raj Adeeb, Jankidas etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

This song, the sixth song from the movie, is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

This song is the 300th song of Husnlal Bhagatram as a music director in the blog. This song is the 600th song in the blog from movies released in 1949. We in the blog have 500 plus songs from movies of other years, but this song makes 1949 the first year in the blog that has now contributed 600 songs in the blog.

It was the year 1949 that marked the beginning of the golden era of Hindi film music. Husnlal Bhagatram played a major role in making 1949 a musically supersaturated year. This year also saw the emergence of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer who would rule the HFM for the next six decades and more. Husnlal Bhagatram were the first music directors to complete 50 songs with Lata Mangeshkar. They utilised the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in 28 songs in 1949 and 40 songs in 1950. C Ramchandra were second, in using Lata Mangeshkar voice in 19 songs in 1949 and 30 songs in 1950. And this song serves as a (belated) birthday celebration song for Lata Mangeshkar !

So, one can see that this song from this movie “Saawan Bhaadon”(1949) ticks all the boxes, as far its eligibility as a Blog century song is concerned. If there is still any doubts in anyone’s mind about the credentials of this song, that would be removed when one listens to this song. Personally I listened to this song only now for the first time, more that 72 years later. And it sounds as sweet and divine as it may have sounded to the ears of music lovers who were around in 1949 !

With this song, the blog completes yet another century, and we duly take fresh guard for the next century.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all, whose continued and consistent support, encouragement and contributions is providing this musical bandwagon with the necessary fuel to keep taking us the newer and nbewer destinations in this musical journey.


song-Tum bin Raja nahin maika chain ho (Saawan Bhaadon)(1949) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

Tum bin raaja nahin maika chain ho

“Hamraahi”(1945), a New Theatres, Calcutta production was the Hindi remake of Bangla movie “Udayer Pathe”(1944) by the same production house, with virtually the same team that worked in the Bagla movie. The movie, directed by debutant director Bimal Roy, had Binota Bose , Radhamohan Bhattacharya, Tulsi Chakraborty, Rekha Mullick, Debi Mukherjee, Hiralal, Ramesh Sinha, Manorama, Maya Bose, Devbala etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have already been covered.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog so far:-

Song Date of post Remarks
Jan gan man adhinaayak jay he 15 August 2013 written and composed by Rabindranath Tagore . This song was part of movie before in became Indian national anthem
Gaaye ja tu apna geet 10 may 2014

Modhu gandhe bhara mridu snigdho chhaaya 5 May 2020 Bangla language song composed by Rabindranath Tagore

One can see that the future national anthem of India was present as a song in this movie, with Rabindranath Tagore duly getting credited as the composer ! He was the composer of another song (a Bangla song) in the Hindi version movie as well.

Other songs were composed by R C Boral.

The seventh and final song from “Hamraahi”(1945) is an “inspirational” song. It is sung by male and female chorus. Munshi Zakir Hussain is the lyricist. Music is composed by R C Boral.

moorakh man kya jaane
moorakh man kya jaane ae ae

Today 28th September, we remember Sardar Bhagat Singh (28th September 1907 – 23rd March 1931), on his 114th birth anniversary.

We on the blog pay our tributes to him by posting a song from the movies made on his life.

I have mentioned in my earlier posts that the year 2002 was a special year from the point of view of ‘movies made on Bhagat Singh’. That year three movies were released on the life of Bhagat Singh.

23rd March 1931 Shaheed

The Legend of Bhagat Singh

Shaheed-E-Azam

We have already introduced the movies ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ and ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ on the blog.
“23rd March 1931 Shaheed” and “The Legend of Bhagat Singh” were released on the same date, and the third movie “Shaheed-E-Azam” was delayed and was released later in the same year i.e.,2002.

All the movies covered the story of Bhagat Singh from his birth to death, including important incidences of Bhagat Singh’s life. All these were presented by interweaving of songs which too were based on same incidences and theme.

The movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ was almost frame to frame copy of ‘Shaheed-1965’ of Manoj Kumar.

I have been fortunate to present a few songs from the movies made on Bhagat Singh earlier on the blog, they are –

Shaheed – 1965 ( pagdi sambhaal jatta on 28.09.2013)

Shaheed E Azam Sardar Bhagat Singh – 1974 ( vekho loko on 23.03.2016)

The Legend of Bhagat Singh – 2002 ( desh mere desh mere meri jaan hai tu on 28.09.2018)

23rd March 1931 – Shaheed ( saans hain jab talak naa rukenge kadam on 23.03.2021)

Today I am going to present a song from the movie ‘Shaheed E Azam-2002’. It was directed by Sukumar Nair for ‘Surjit Movies’.

This movie was produced by Iqbal Gill. Gurmail Singh Dhami and Harjinder Dhami were the co-producers of this movie.

This movie had Sonu Sood in the role of Bhagat Singh. The other star cast included Raj Zutshi, Binnu Dhillon, Manav Vij, Dev Gill, Rajendra Gupta, Shama Sikander, Abhijeet Lahiri, Sadhana Singh, Ron Sladczyk and others.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Harinder Gill while its editing was done by Omkar Bhakri.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.05.2002.

Lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Khwaja Parvez and S.M. Sadiq. This movie also included poetry of Baba Bule Shah and Sardar Bhagat Singh.

Music of this movie was composed by Maqbool Khan, Sabar Ali (Pakistan) and Sardool Sikender.

Today’s song is sung by Roop Kumar Rathod and Udit Narayan. On screen it is performed by Sonu Sood, Manav Vij, and Binnu Dhillon (I guess). This song happens to be in the jail premises as its picturisation shows.

Let us listen to today’s song now and pay our tributes to Bhagat Singh on his birth anniversary today.

(I have not been able to note correct words in Punjabi language, I would request knowledgeable readers to correct me wherever it is required.)

Hullo Atuldom

“Pukaar” (2000) was a Rajkumar Santoshi directed and Surinder Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, and Bharat Shah production. It had dialogues and screenplay by Anjum Rajabali and Rajkumar Santoshi, lyricists were Majrooh Sultanpuri (who wrote four songs) and Javed Akhtar (wrote two songs). A R Rehman was the music director. The cast was headed by Madhuri Dixit, Namrata Shirodkar, Anil Kapoor; Farida Jalal, Girish Karnad, Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Danny, Rohini Hattangadi, K D Chandran, Anjan Shrivastav, Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Rishi etc. in supporting roles. There was a surprise element in the cast, which I shall get to later in the post.

The movie was a fictional account of the terrorist problems plaguing India. We had Anil Kapoor playing Major Jaidev Rajvansh and Farida Jalal and Girish Karnad played his parents. Major Jaidev has Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) as his childhood friend who has been in love with him forever. The Major and his fellow officers manage to rescue a leading politician and also capture the terrorist (Abhrush played by Danny) who has masterminded the kidnapping of the politician (Govind Namdeo).

The movie had all the masala needed for calling itself a patriotic movie- terrorist (supposedly from Pakistan), corrupt politician, men in uniform who go beyond their prescribed calling in tracing/tracking the terrorist in spite of being severely wounded or even dying in the melee. The whole movie is set in some picturesque hill-town which has a colonial Town Hall where the climax takes place. The terrorists decide to blow up the town hall and its clock tower with the help of time-bombs and our severely wounded hero with his highly repentant girl friend (why the girl is repentant can be understood if one sees the movie)- who are both tied to structure- have all the time duration of the song/ event being held in the premises of the Town Hall to discover and deactivate the bombs.

We are having the song that is being staged during the climax with this post. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. On screen the person lip-syncing the song is Lata Mangeshkar herself (the surprise element that I wrote about earlier). I was awed when I saw the song for the first time ever all those years back – 21 years back to be exact. She was only 71 then. The song has The Lata Mangeshkar playing herself and singing this plaintive appeal to end all violence. She appears in her trademark saree with a group of kids who also emote the song rather well. We can see Girish Karnad and Farida Jalal in the audience and Danny stealthily making his way into the premises using forged ID card.

We all know that Lata didi (as the whole entertainment industry addresses her) had faced the camera at the beginning of her career. Recently I received this video of a Marathi song where she appears with her sisters in the group of children singing at a party. Our blog also has the first ever song in Hindi which was for the marathi movie “Gaja Bhaau” (1943).

Same date, last year, Atulji has taken up the daunting task of trying to list every single Hindi movie where Lata Mangeshkar has even ‘hummed’ a line. That series was kicked off with this post. That is material for about 64 posts and at the rate of one-post per week we reached post number 53 this Monday, the series kick started on her birthday, last year.

I may not be a huge fan of this “Bharat Ratna”, but I always try to sing her songs and admire the way she modulates her voice to suit the situation, actor and emotion of the song. I love many of the songs she has sung but will not sit to enlist them here.

Me, with my feeling of being a candle in front of such a huge personality, also try to send a post/song to wish this Nightingale lots of good health and cheer.

Song-Ek tu hi bharosa ek tu hi sahaara (Pukaar)(2000) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, Md-A R Rahman

Lyrics

Blog Day :

In the early 1940s, New Theatres (NT) was going through some lean period as some of its films like ‘Meenakshi’ (1942), ‘Saugand’ (1942), ‘Kashinath’ (1943), ‘Waapas’ (1943) etc could not garner box office success. During this period, there were exodus of some of the artists and technicians from NT to Bombay. In this background, NT produced ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1944) in Bengali with some new artists, new technicians and also with a new director, Bimal Roy who was the Cinematographer and the Editor with NT. The film became a big box office success, recouping to some extent the lost glory of NT.

Buoyed by the fresh success, NT decided to remake Hindi version, ‘Hamraahi’ (1945) with more or less the same star cast that were in the Bangla version. The star cast included Binota Bose (her first and the last Hindi film as an actress) and Radhamohan Bhattacharya in the lead roles, supported by Tulsi Chakraborty, Rekha Mullick, Debi Mukherjee, Hiralal, Ramesh Sinha, Manorama, Maya Bose, Devbala etc.

Incidentally,as reported in The Daily Telegraph’s E-paper, the lead actor, Radhamohan Bhattachraya’s 100th birth anniversary was on September 27, 2021. Bangla film fraternity gathered in Kolkata to pay tribute to him especially by actors who had worked with him. At the end of the gathering, one of his film, ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1944) was screened for the audience.

‘Hamraahi’ (1945) did not get the same success at the box office as was with its Bangla version. DVD of ‘Hamraahi’ (1945) is not available for viewing on any of the video sharing platforms. So, I watched the Bangla version, ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1944) with English sub-titles. The story of the film is the theme of rich-poor conflicts. The idea of making the film on rich-poor conflicts may have come when NT produced a documentary film on the Bengal famine of 1943 which was directed by Bimal Roy. The story of the film is as under:

Anup (Radhamohan Bhattacharya) is a middle-class journalist staying with his mother and a sister, Sumitra (Rekha Mullick). Anup gets a job at industrialist, Rajendranath’ office as a as a Publicity Officer. He also writes speeches for Rajendranath (Ramesh Sinha in Hindi version) which are well appreciated and Rajendranath attains a status of an intellectual.

Anup meets Gopa (Binota Bose) in a library where he comes to know that Gopa is the daughter of Rajendranath whose wife had falsely accused his sister, Sumitra of stealing from his house when she attended a party on the invitation of her school friend, Gopa, Anup decides to leave the job. After some persuasion by Rajendranath’s son, Souren (Debi Mukherjee), Anup agrees to complete the speech he was writing for Rajendranath. Souren in return agrees to get Anup’s novel printed.

Gopa gets hold of the manuscript of Anup’s novel. After reading it, she is impressed with the viewpoints he has about the rich-poor class struggles. She starts meeting Anup quite often. In the meanwhile, the novel is printed and released but instead of Anup’s name, the novel carries the name of Sauren as the author. Anup is not in a position to prove the wrong-doing of Souren, Instead, he decides to take up the issues of the workers in factories of Rajendranath. Gopa also gets involved with workers’ union to understand their problems. Anup becomes popular among the workers and becomes the leader of the workers’ union.

Souren is not happy with this development. He hires goons to to disturb the workers’ meeting during which Anup gets hurt. Gopa arrives to take care of him. The next day, the photograph of Gopa with Anup becomes a scandalous news. Rajendranath bars Gopa from meeting Anup. He also visits Anup’s house requesting him not to meet Gopa in future which Anup agrees under the impression that Gopa regretted her decision to join him as told to him by Gopa’s father. But it was not true as Gopa decides to leave her father’s house to join Anup for the betterment of underprivileged.

It is interesting to note that the film ends with Gopa driving a car to catch-up with Anup who has decided to leave the place. As soon as she locates him walking on the road, she abandons the car and walks with Anup for ‘udayer pathe’ (new path of dawn). In a way, the film became ‘udayer pathe’ for Bimal Roy as well as a renowned director. Later, he directed ‘Do Beegha Zameen’ (1953) with more or less the similar theme of rich-poor conflicts.

Generally, in the films with the story of rich-poor conflicts, capitalists have been mostly shown as a ruthless exploiters of the working class. The leaders representing the working class have often been shown with militant attitude. In ‘Udayer Pathe’/Hamraahi’, Bimal Roy has shown the characters representing the capitalist and the labourer in a restraint manner. There are no rhetoric dialogues for one-upmanship. Even the romantic relationship between Anup and Gopa have been kept in a very restrain fashion. In the film, they meet mostly in the context of understanding and solving the problems of workers with an undertone of liking for each other.

The story of ‘Udayer Pathe’/Hamraahi’ was written by IPTA writer, Jyotirmoy Roy. After the tremendous success of ‘Udayer Pathe’, Jyotirmoy Roy wrote a full-fledged novel in Bengali on the subject which became among the best seller novel.

‘Hamraahi’ (1945) had 7 songs (including one song in Bangla) of which 5 songs have been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the 6th song, ‘hansi chaand ki aaj niraali’ sung by and picturised on Binota Bose. The song has been written by Munshi Zakir Hussain which is set to music by R C Boral. Actually, the tune of this song is almost the same as that of the Bangla version of the song, chander hasir bandh bhengechhe which was written and composed by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and used in ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1944).

I have watched the Bangla version of the song which is available in the film ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1944). The song has been beautifully picturised in a full moon light setting. I have given below the link to the Bangla version of the song just to get an idea as to how the song was picturised in Hindi version of the film. The background behind the song picturization is as under:

After attending the workers’ meeting, Gopa and Anup are on their way to return to their respective homes. On the way, they find moonlit path. Gopa desires to spend some time to enjoy the nature in the midst of moon light. It is at this point, Anup reminds her of the commitment she had made to sing a song for him. He says that it is a perfect setting for singing a song. She sings the song full of description of the nature (prakriti varnan) which is Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s one of the favourite themes. Munshi Zakir Hussain’s lyrics for Hindi version retains some parts of the ‘prakiriti varnan’ with some different imageries, probably to fit words in the pre-composed tune of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore.

I heard both the versions of the songs only a few days back. But the songs often linger in my mind for the beautiful nature poetry woven with melodious tune.

Today’s song is from an obscure old film Jhoothi Sharma-1940. The film was made by Bhavnani Productions, Bombay and was directed by its owner Mohan Bhavnanni himself Music was given by the veteran, multi-talented Badri Prashad and the songs were written by D.N.Madhok.

Though the film was obscure which remained unknown in later years, it was a special film because a German had written its story and screenplay, while another German had provided the background music and the orchestration for the film. Now, where did the Germans come from in this film ?

Very few people know that Indian Cinema had a little known connection with the rise of Hitler in Germany in 1932-33. A group of men , engaged in Cinema in Germany, flocked to India in the 30’s and played a vital role in Indian Cinema and the arts of that time. After Hitler took over Germany in 1933, the German Cine Studio’s glory days were over and they were turned into Nazi Propaganda Machines !

It was at this time that several of its men left the studio and arrived in India, and contributed during the Indian cinema’s formative years.

The foremost among them is Frantz Osten, a German whom Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani met at the UFA when they went to train there (they worked with Lang and Marlene Dietrich). Osten had already been directing films for the couple since 1925, when he made Light of Asia for them from Germany.

In 1934, he came to India and the next year, after Rai founded ‘ Bombay Talkies ‘ the legendary film studio in Malad that now lies in ruins, Osten directed its first film.

He went on to direct the famous Devika Rani-Ashok Kumar starrer, Achhyut Kanya, without much knowledge of Hindi. The film, which featured the song “Main ban ke chiriya”, was shot by Joseph Wirsching; the sets were designed by Karl von Spreti and the laboratory was headed by Zolle, Osten’s team of UFA ex-members who worked for Rai’s state-of-the-art studio.

Osten and his fellow Germans directed 16 films for Rai. It was a remarkable feat for people who knew little Hindi ‘ mistaking the word “bulbul” once for a pair of bulls. While in Bombay, he became a member of the Nazi Party (1936). He was interned by the British at the outbreak of WW2 while shooting his last film there, Kangan. Released and allowed to return to Germany (1940).

“It’s not clear if they had anything to do with the Nazi ideology, either way,” said film historian Amrit Gangar.

“If they did, it did not show in their films. But there were two other people who almost certainly migrated to India because of the persecution of Jews.”

They were Walter Kauffman, a scholar and composer interested in Oriental music, and Wilhelm Haas, a writer and a friend of Franz Kafka.

“Both were Jews, and Haas came to India because of Kauffman, who went on to found the Bombay Chamber Music Society,” Gangar added.

Kauffman arrived in 1934 after meeting director-producer Mohan Bhavnani at the UFA (where V. Shantaram also did a stint).

“Haas was in Czechoslovakia, but left the country for India just after Hitler’s invasion,” Gangar said.

Kauffman, Haas and Bhavnani worked together in Premnagar (1940), Naushad’s first film as music director. Kauffman composed the background score; Haas wrote the screenplay.

“It is debatable, but Kauffman is probably also the person behind the All India Radio signature tune. Haas was a member of the Indian chapter of PEN,” Gangar said. Haas also wrote the script for Bhavnani’s Jhooti Sharam (1939) and Kauffmann provided Orchestration and background music.

The story of Paul Zils ( 1-6-1915 to 30-3-1979 ) stands out, though. Zils, believed to be a Nazi sympathizer, turned up in India under strange circumstances: he was bound for Indonesia in a steamer that got torpedoed by an Indian naval ship during World War II and he was taken prisoner.

After his release, because of his film experiences, the leadership of the sales department in Ezra Mir led government documentary production company, called him to join Information films of India. End of October 1945, he came to Bombay and started his work. In March 1959 he returned to Germany.

Josph Virsching-the Cinematographer, however, stayed back in India till his death in 1967. He did few Hindi films too.

Paul Zils directed 3 Dev Anand films, according to the documents. Hindustan Hamara-50 and Zalzala-52 are found in HFGK, but the third film called ‘ Shabash”, though listed in 1949, gives no details, except the film name. ( Information adapted from the book ” Walter Koffman” by Amit Gangar, with thanks and my notes.)

The cast of the film Jhoothi Sharm-40 was Trilok Kapoor,Bimla Kumari, Shareefa, Navin Yagnik, Nayampally, Girish, Iqbal, Rajkumari and others. The film was directed by Mohan Bhavnani. Most of the new generation readers may not know anything about this pioneer film maker.

Mohan Dayaram Bhavnani was born on 2-10-1903 at Hyderabad-Sindh. He studied at the College of Technology, Manchester (1921-24). After graduation, he went to Germany to study film making at the UFA (Universum Film ArtikenGessel schaft), a German motion picture production company in 1924. He came back to India and joined Kohinoor Film Co. in Bombay. He made several Silent films with actress Sulochana, like Cinema ni rani, Maitri prem, Veer Bala, Bhamto Bhoot, Wild Cat of Bombay ( she played 8 different roles in it) etc. Then he joined Imperial film co. in 1927. In 1931 he became an independent producer with Indian Art Production.

He returned to Germany to study sound film technique, when the advent of the Talkie happened in India. he came back and made his first Talkie Farebi jaal aka The Trapped-1931, a part Talkie film. It flopped but actress Durga Khote debuted with this film and sang 2 songs too. Even his future wife Enakshi Rama Rau also acted in this film in a small role.

He started his Ajanta Cinetone(1933-34) and his own Bhavnani Productions (1935-1948). He hired famous author Premchand to write a story for the film ‘ Mazdoor’ (The Mill)-1934. The film was banned for 2 years. It was followed by the film Jagran-1936- both films on Labourer’s problems. He also produced a film Ajeet-48, the first full length colour film on 16 mm and blown up on 35 mm.

He left filmmaking and joined the Government Films Division as its first Chief producer (48-55). Then he went to China, on the invitation of Chow En Lai to make documentaries for China. He took his cameraman Kishore Rege and S.K.Kulkarni with him.

His wife Enakshi became a famous Dancer and also wrote books on Dances of india. Mohan Bhavnani died on 30-12-1962 at Bombay The 72nd Annual Cannes film Festival was organised from 14th to 25th May 2019 and it was dedicated to short films made by Mohan Bbhavnani of india. What an honour for him to get such a tribute!

It can be seen from the table of 1999 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 14 songs in 7 movies released in 1999.

Two songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1999 have been covered in the blog. So 12 songs from 7 movies of 1999 sung by Lata Mangeshkar are yet to be covered in the blog.

Alphabetically “Dulhan Banoon Main Teri”(1999) is the first movie of 1999 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dulhan Banoon Main Teri”(1999) was produced and directed by B Subhash. The movie had Faraz Khan (Late), Deepti Bhatnagar, Kashmira Shah, Johny Lever, Dilip Tahil, Pramod Moutho, Arun Bakshi, Vishwajit Pradhan, Anil Nagrath, Beena, Raj Kiran, Johny Whisky, Madhu Malti, Babban Lal, Sheetal, Dhirendra, Anand Jog, Madhu Acharya, Deep Dhillon, Subhash Rajpoot, Satyam Chauhan, Sheeba Bhakri, Vicky Borade, Geeta, Karan Verma(child artiste), Ajit Srivastava, Roop gagan Kang, Ajit Kumar, Vinny Kumar, Vivek Pande etc in it.

The movie had 9 songs in it. One song had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in it.

Here is that one song from the movie.

This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Udit Narayan, Vinod Rathod and chorus. Dev Kohli is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Laxman.

Only the audio of the song seems to available. A video (apparently fake) is in circulation, so that does not count.

The audio is more than ten minutes long. Prakashchandra, who sent the lyrics as well as other details, guesses that this song was picturised on Deepti Bhatnagar, Faraaz Khan(Late) and Vishwajeet Pradhan.
PS;THe video, whose link was pointed out by Mahesh Mamadapur, shows that the song is picturised on Deepti Bhatnagar and Faraaz Khan.

With this song, the movie makes it’s debut in the blog.
