#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 151 # Qawwalis – 14 #
———————————————————————

Qawwalis were common in Hindi films when I was growing up(1968-1983). As I grww watching them in the movies in my childhood, some qawwalis left lasting impression on my impressionable mind.

Qawwalis like ‘raaz ki baat kehdoon to’, ‘jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi’, ‘shirdiwaale sai baba’, ‘raat abhi baaki hai baat abhi baaki hai’, ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’, were the most heard qawwalis when I was growing.

‘Chadhhta sooraj dheere dheere dhalta hai dhal jaayega’ was a favourite of all ‘orchestras’ and one person from a Orchestra from Jalgaon used to sing it so well that always left the audience ‘spell-bound’. I remember this qawwali ever since.

All these qawwalisgrew up on me as I grew up in my life.

I have a special fascination for this genre of music. It always takes me to an entirely different ‘musical world’.

In the movies of ‘seventies’ qawwalis were a major attraction in the movies. Qawwalis like ‘ham to jhuk kar salaam karte hain’, ‘ham lootne aayen hain’, etc. were liked very much by the audience. There may be many more which I could have missed to mention here.

Jaani Babu Qawwal, Shakila Bano Bhopali and Aziz Nazan were the names I particularly remember whenever there was a discussion on qawwalis.
And as I had mentioned in my posts earlier that another name which I vaguely remembered was Shankar-Shambhu. At that age I could not understand the greatness of these peoples, and it is only after coming into the contact of this blog, that I got to read, learn, and know about these stalwarts in Qawwalis.

There was a phase when disco made an entry into HFM in mid-eighties to let us say till mid-nineties when Qawwalis took a little backseat (I think), otherwise they were always likened and had always been an integral part of HFM. In the recent years we have seen many Qawwalis in Hindi Films. The new digital age, technological advances in music instruments have enriched the presentation of Qawwalis. Movie makers have been experimenting by including ‘qawwali song’ or ‘fusion qawwali songs’ in their movies.

In Hindi movies qawwalis are woven with the story topic of the movie. So, we have ‘’romantic qawwalis’, ‘men vs women’, ‘husn aur ishq’, ‘celebrating a festival’, ‘devotional qawwalis’, ‘chor-police’, ‘marriage celebration’, ‘mujrim-munsif’, ‘scoring peanuts over each other’ (Atulogy), ‘nok-jhonk’, ‘teasing each other’, ‘musical competition’, and other types of qawwalis in our movies.

Or it may be a competition of poetry between two groups (read men and women mostly) where ‘qawwalis’ would perfectly fit into the plot of a movie.

In many movies they have been used to keep the suspense intact where actors, actresses would disguise themselves and enter the villain’s den to rescue their partners/friends caught by the villain. Or sometimes the villain will kidnap close relatives of the hero or heroine in the movie and ask for a ‘hefty’ ransom. And the hero/heroine would plan a song or disguise as a ‘musical-troupe’ to enter the ‘villain’s den’ to rescue a ‘child’, ‘relatives’ or a ‘famous scientist’ or a ‘police commissioner’ who would have been kidnaped by the villain or his associates.

To mis-lead the villain the hero/heroine or their friends and well-wishers would sing a qawwali and simultaneously free the innocent ones caught by the villain. Sometimes this would happen just before the climax of the movie.

In our movies we also have qawwalis where we see ‘lawful elements(police, CID) and the unlawful elements(goondas, or burglar, thieves)’ have a ‘qawwali muqaabla’ in “disguise”.

I am not a competent person to write or discuss about the technicalities of Qawwalis. But since I like them very much, I had undertaken this series and have presented some qawwalis from the ‘decade of seventies or 1971-to-1980’.

If we look on the statistics of the qawwalis already posted on the blog till today’s song, we get the following details (which could be of interest to music connoisseurs).

(The above details are so far compiled for the 173 qawwalis already posted on the blog. There might be some songs which might be missing in absence of the tag ‘Qawwalis’ on their post.
We will revisit the details in the future as and when possible, so till then … 😊)

In this series we have so far listened to the following qawwalis.

SN Qawwaali
1) Bada lutf thha jab kunwaare thhe ham tum
2) Hashr mein unka jab saamna ho gaya
3) Ham lootne aaye hain ham loot ke jaayenge

8) Kaun hai mujrim kaun hai munsif

11) Tumhaara pehlaa number Nabi ke tum ho dilbar
12) Nizamuddin Aulia banaa do bigde kaam hamaare
13) Tere chaahnewaale aaye hain

For now, we are concluding this series with the today’s qawwali from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Be-reham’.

This is another movie of which the dedication is to ‘All policemen known and unknown who lived for discipline and died for discipline’. That would also be sufficient for all to guess what the movie is all about.

“Be-reham-1980” was directed by R. Jhalani for ‘K.D.S. Films’.

It was produced by K.D. Shorey who also wrote the story of this movie.

Its star cast included Sanjeev Kumar, Mala Sinha, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, I.S. Johar, Kadar Khan, Urmila Bhatt, Keshto Mukherjee, Manmohan, Shetty, Raj Mehra, Rinku Jaiswal, Komila Virk, Viju Khote, Ashok Nag, Gurubachan, C.S. Dubey, Sheel Kumar, Amarjeet, R.S. Chopra, Madhup Sharma, Sudarshan Sethi, Sehgal, Uma Khosla, Vimal Chopra, and Helen in special appearance.

Moushumi Chatterjee, Kamal, Sujata and Dev Kumar make a friendly appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 01.08.1980.

Lyrics of the songs of this movie were written by Verma Malik and Jigar Muradabadi.
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Here is the list of songs this movie had.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Ik lafz e mohabbat ka adnaa sa fasaana hai Asha Bhonsle, Anup Jalota Jigar Moradabadi
02 Ye saal ki aakhri raat hai Shailendra Singh, Anuradha Paudwal, Chandrani Mukherjee Verma Malik
03 Haseenon ki duniya khudgarz hai Lata Mangeshkar Verma Malik
04 Milne ko aate ho, phir bhi mulqaat nahin karte ho Asha Bhonsle Verma Malik
05 Taqdeer ke kalam se koyi bach naa paayega Mohd Rafi Verma Malik/td>
06 Ham aaj ye kissaa khatm karen Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor Verma Malik

Today’s qawwali happens when the movie is already having some interesting ‘twists and turn’ in its story. I am not going to detail it more to keep intact the interest of those who would like to or have to watch this interesting movie.

I remember when the movie was released one of my classmates had watched it soon after its release and he was full praise for Sanjeev Kumar and others’ performances in this movie.

Sanjeev Kumar was common favourite of all us friends. And in our circle of juniors and seniors we often discussed about his roles, and everybody would have likened his performance in each of his movies then.
We now move to the today’s song.

It is picturised on Moushumi Chatterjee and the actor whom I am unable to identify.

We can see Keshto Mukherjee, Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy with many others present in the picturisation of this song.
Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Lyrics are by Verma Malik and music is composed by

Let us now enjoy today’s qawwali watching Moushumi Chatterjee’s charming performance and Keshto Mukherjee’s special antics. 😊
