Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 10
————————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Nainaa-1973’.

One song from this movie was posted on the blog ten years back on this day. In all, five songs were discussed on this day ten years ago on 19 January 2012.

Here is the list.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Muhabbat mein aise zamaane bhi aaye Sagaai(1951) All Songs covered
Ye samaa ye khushi kuchh bolo jee bolo jee Ghar Ghar Ki Baat(1959) All Songs covered
Saaraa mora kajraa chhudaayaa toone Do Dil(1965) All Songs covered
Hone lagi hai raat jawaan jaagte raho Nainaa(1972) 5 of 7 Songs posted
Koyi ye kaise bataaye ke wo tanha kyun hai Arth(1982) 3 of 5 Songs posted

From the above table we can see that out of the five movies presented on the blog on 19.01.2012, three movies viz. ‘Sagaai-1951’, ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Baat-1959’ and ‘Do Dil-1965’ have already been Yippeeee’ed on the blog.

That leaves us two movies i.e., ‘Nainaa-1973’ and ‘Arth-1982’ from which songs can be discussed today.

I am presenting a song from ‘Nainaa-1973’ for which the lyrics were sent by our dear Prakash ji.

‘Nainaa-1973’ was directed by Kanak Mishra for ‘Shakti International, Bombay’. It had Shashi Kapoor, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rahman, Akashdeep, David, Padma Khanna, Sanjana, Shaukat Kaifi, Praveen Pal, Madhumati, Jagirdar, Naagar, Samson, Feroza, Teerath, Polsan, Dhanraj, Sitaram, Krishna Kumar, Radheshyam, Jugnu and others.

This movie introduced Darpan and Siddharth. Farida Jalal, A.K. Hangal, and Rajshree have special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.09.1973.

This movie had seven songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri (five songs), Kaifi Azmi and Indeewar (one song each).

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Here is the list of songs this movie had as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Hone lagi hai raat jawaan, jaagte raho Asha Bhonsle 19.01.2012
02 Jaane mujhe toone ye kyaa cheez pilaa dee Kishore Kumar, Sharda Being discussed today

06 Man panchhi kahin door chal door chal Sharda 25.05.2019
07 Mere dil door bahut door kahin bhi le chal Mohd Rafi

Out of the above list, I am aware of two songs ‘hamko to jaan se pyaari hai tumhaari aankhen’ and ‘albele sanam tu laaya kahaan’. May be other songs will turn out to be familiar after I listen to them.

I am sure I had not heard today’s song earlier. Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Sharda. On screen it is Shashi Kapoor and Padma Khanna lip syncing the song. The song is a ‘party song’ where other than Shashi Kapoor and Padma Khanna we can see Moushumi Chatterjee, David and others.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us now enjoy today’s entertaining song 😊

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 06#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ (1972). I had never heard of this movie earlier. I became aware of this movie only through HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

The film is directed by K Chatterjee for I.M.K. Films, Bombay. The star cast as listed in Geet Kosh includes Suma, Dinesh Rai, Sajan, Sonal, Darpan, Shambhu Mukherjee, Kailash Sharma, Gopal Bhatnagar, Ranjana, Usha, Sarita Devi, Preetam, Prem Roop, Samajeet, Prakash, Sudhanshu, Anil, Shyam, Manik, Sadanand, Udayveer, Prem, Mirchandani, BK Mukherjee, Sudhir, Satish, Namdev, Awasthi, Krishna, Satyadeep, and others. Anupama had a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.07.1972

This movie has three songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and composed to music by Usha Khanna. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Tum Kabhi Saamne Aa Jaao To Poochhoon Tumse Pankaj Udhas
02 Tori Nathani Kaahe Haale Doley Ri Usha Khanna, Chitra Singh
03 Main Aankhen Moond Ke So Jaaun Chandrani Mukherjee

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. Today’s song is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh and picturised on two actresses whom I am unable to identify, and many other artistes are seen in the picturisation of this song.
[Ed Note: The two dancers are Anupama (in orange dress) and Habiba Rehman (in blue dress). Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]

Here is the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to today’s movie, which is the 61st film in this list.
[Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala“.]

Note: – Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now. And there is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’ and ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The video and audio versions have common ‘first stanza’ of the song but the second stanza in both the version is different.

As mentioned above I am unable to identify the artistes. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s lovely song…

तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
बात जिया की गोरी
पूछ के चोरी चोरी
बात जिया की गोरी
पूछ के चोरी चोरी
लाज का घुंघटा क्यों खोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

बोले ये खिली खिली गालों की कलियाँ
पिया के संग तू मनाए रंगरलियाँ
मोहे सता के तोहे मिलता है क्या री
छेड़ करोगी तो मैं दे दूँगी गारी
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

डाला है डाका तू ने मेरे ही घर में
फिर भी बुरी हूँ मैं री तोरी नज़र में
मोहे सखी री काहे देती हो ताना
मोरे लिए है तोरा भैया दीवाना
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

(आडियो में भिन्न दूसरा अंतरा)

किसको बुलाया था री तूने अंगनवा
कैसा है दिखने में तोरा सजनवा
पहले सखी री तोहे ननदी बनाऊँगी
पाछे में सगरे ये बतियाँ बताऊँगी
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

बात जिया की गोरी

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 9
————————————————————————————–

Today (18 January 2022) is a foggy wintery shivery morning in North India. To add to this woe, the nation is also into the grips of the third wave of Covid-19 virus.

This day ten years ago, viz 18 january 2012 was almost world apart. Those days I was in a stage of transition, viz I had been transferred to Bilaspur, but my attachmnent from Nagpur was still there, where I still had my accomodation. Since I had not got my accomodation at Bilaspur where I had been transferred, I would go back to Nagpur during weekends and holidaysat the first available opportunity.

Even without any proper accomodation, I had settled down well into my blogging, even if the rate of daily posts had gone down a bit.

It is clear that 18 January 2012 was no where near as difficult a day as 18 january 2022. Unlike today, when I woke up late and that too reluctantly, I has woken up early ten years ago as was my wont. Six songs were covered on that day. All these songs got covered before noon.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog ten years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5313 Bichhde huye pardesi Barsaat(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5314 Apni nazar se unki nazar tak Ham Log (1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
5315 Muhabbat karne waale kis qadar majboor hote hain Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs covered out of 12 by now
5316 Boley ye dil ka ishaara Santaan (1959) 3 songs covered in the blog out of 7
5317 Jaan chali jaaye jiyaa nahin jaaye Anjaana (1969) Movie YIPPEED by now
5318 Tere sang pyaar main nahin todna Naagin (1976) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that “Santaan”(1959) is one of the movies that is not yet YIPPEED. So this movie is still eligible for Blog ten year challenge today.

So, as blog ten year challenge, here is a song from “Santaan”(1959). The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised on Kamini Kadam as a “aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” genre of song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Kurbaani”(1943) was directed by Ram Daryani for Murli Movietone, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had Durga Khote, Ishwarlal, Vasanti, Kaushalya, Gulab, Kamla, Gope, Majid, Sheikh, Dharpure etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it.

One song from “Kurbaani”(1943) has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Kurbaani”(1943) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kaushalya and Ishwarlal. Wali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash.

Only the audio of this song is available. Seeing that the singers of this song acted in the movie as well, one can assume that the song was picturised on Kaushalya and Ishwarlal themselves.

Like the first song from the movie, this song too is a delightful song to listen to. This song has retained its freshness even today nearly 80 years after the song was created. Clearly a song that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 09
———————————————————

96th birth anniversary of O. P. Nayyar

Today, finally we arrive at a Rafi-Asha duet on the occasion of 96th birth anniversary of legendary composer of beautiful songs, OP Nayyar. I am sure, I have long back looked at this duet and saved the link multiple times in different laptops/folders.

I, for one, am most happy that this was somehow missed by all regular contributors to the blog, and not yet posted.  So that I am having a quintessential Rafi-Asha duet by OPN, which is written by Qamar Jalaalabadi.

Qamar Jalaalabadi has already featured in this series.  So, this post in about Rafi Sahab’s association with Asha Bhonsle and OP Nayyar. Film is ‘Basant’ from 1960. The following 10 songs of this film are already posted on the blog:

Baaje Waala Patiyaale Waala
Chori Chori Ik Ishaara Ho Gaya Hai
Duniya Pakki Four Twenty
Hamne Unke Saamne Pehle To Khanjar Rakh Diya
Mere Dil Pe Lagaa De Darling Apne Naam Ki Chit
Mere Lahange Mein Ghunghroo Lagaa De
Nainon Mein Sooraj Ki Kirnen
Peechhe Hat Hat Hat Babu Chhed Naa
Raaste Mein Ik Haseen
Ukkad Dukkad Bamba

To find an OPN-Rafi song, I was just going through the list of songs Music Director-wise page in the blog and I found that right from ‘Baaz’ (1953) which is the third film score for OPN after ‘Aasmaan’ and ‘Chham Chhama Chham’ in 1952, Rafi Sahab is a regular in all his films.  Rafi Sahab has no songs under OPN in the film film ‘Mangu’ (1954).

Significant, popular and hit music scores of OPN-Rafi combination:

1964 Kashmir Ki Kali
1965 Mere Sanam
1966 Aqalmand
Do Dilon Ki Dastaan
Saawan Ki Ghata
Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi
1968 Hamsaaya

This combination gives us a real treat of great songs from mid 50’s to late 60’s. I am getting the feeling that I have missed something in the above list, so it may be worth visiting again.  I have counted 200 plus songs in the excel sheet, so that makes a good sizable portion of all songs composed by OPN in his career.

Total tally of these OPN and Asha Bhonsle songs is as below:

OP Nayyar (1952-1994)

487

71 movies (562)
Asha Bhonsle

2887

7874

As for Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets, 547 of these are posted on the blog.  Compare this with 348 Rafi-Lata duets in the blog. At a guess there are around 450 Rafi-Lata duets, as compared to anything between 650-700 Rafi-Asha duet songs. Rafi-Asha duets are too many to go through at short notice.  So I will surmise to say that these two have sung many iconic and classic songs under numerous music directors, like OPN, SDB, RDB, Ravi, Chitragupt, Kalyanji Anandji etc.

So here’s is song, a duet by OPN in the film ‘Basant’ (1960).  The year 1960 is the peak of OPN, but he was to go on to give greater musical treat to Hindi film music in the 60’s, with Rafi and without Rafi in a rare instance.  His association with Asha Bhonsle is a long one, which eliminated the need for more than one female playback singer in a film’s score.  Asha Bhonsle is the most versatile singer to have graced the Hindi film playback field.  No doubt, OPN has a big role to play in shaping Asha’s career, in the face of stiff competition from her sister Lata Mangeshkar, who ruled the field for more than 30 years.

OP Nayyar has the distinction of having succeeded in the film industry music scene, without having Lata Mangeshkar sing a single song for him.  It makes a big statement about OP Nayyar, to have withstood this sort of situation and survived spectacularly, swimming against the tide.

The song must have been filmed on Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, seeing they are the lead pair of the film.  Johnny Walker and Kammo are another pair in the film, but the song is sounding like a Shammi Kapoor song. So this one is also among the last few Rafi songs on Shammi Kapoor, to be posted here on this blog. Rafi-Shammi Association details have to wait for another day.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 8
————————————————————————————–

Today 16th January’2022 is the ninetysixth birth anniversary (16.01.1926 – 28.01.2007) of Omkar Prasad Nayyar whom we know by the name of O.P. Nayyar.

His name and music need no introduction. He was the ‘legend’ and has given us many songs to listen and cherish forever. He crafted a special place for his music in the annals of HFM and his music will be loved till it lives on this planet.

I am big fan of OPN’s music and thought that I was aware of all his movies where he composed music for. So, when I got this mail from our dear Prakash ji containing a song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’ I was surprised as the name of the movie didn’t ring any song in my mind. I feel very awkward or rather shameful of myself that I was not aware of this movie and its songs.

Well, so I decided to present this song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’, and that way I can listen the other songs of this movie too.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 09.12.2009 with its song ‘Zaraa dekhiye meri saadgi’ and after that only two songs from this movie have been added on the blog so far. One on 16.01.2012 and one on 18.11.2017.

Today after ten years of 16.01.2012 the movie becomes eligible for one of its songs under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge – 2012-2022’. (Incidentally one more movie where music is composed by O.P. Nayyar is eligible today under BTYC as its’ songs were presented on 16.01.2012 and this movie is yet to be Yippeeee’ed. This movie is ‘Kalpana-1960).

Let us see the list of movies represented on the blog ten years back on 16.01.2012.

Here is the list.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai/a> Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs posted
Beqasi hadd se jab guzar jaaye/a> Kalpana (1960) 5 songs posted

Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo Naseehat(1967) 3 of 6 songs posted/td>
Muhabbat ho gayee jinse Kahin Din Kahin Raat(1968) All Songs covered

As mentioned above today we listen to a song from ‘Naseehat-1967’.

This movie was produced by Dara Singh (as mentioned by Atul ji in one of earlier posts).

‘Nasihat’ or ‘Naseehat-1967’ was directed by Om Patwar for ‘Deedar Movies, Bombay’.
It had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

This movie had seven soundtracks including one music track and that left us with six songs which are listed below.

Four songs out of six were written by S.H. Bihari (1,2,4 & 5 from the below list) and two songs were written by Aziz Kashmiri (3 & 6 in the below list)

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by O.P. Nayyar.

Mukesh and his Co-Singers – 8
——————————————–

Today, we take up Mukesh’s association with playback singer Jagjit Kaur wherein there is a solitary duet and that too in an unreleased film called ‘Hum Ek Hain’.

There are 3 released movies named ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and one unreleased. Mukesh has sung one solo in one of the released movies under Usha Khanna and one solo and a duet in the unreleased movie under Khaiyyam. Confused? Well, me too and hence the table below.

Films titled ‘HUM EK HAIN’
Year of release Composer Mukesh songs
1946 Hunslal Bhagatram Nil
1969 Usha Khanna One solo
Unreleased Khayyam A solo and a duet with Jagjit Kaur
1982 N/A N/A

Further, I came across a rather familiar song which is again represented by the name “Hum Ek Hain” – “Awaaz Do Hum Ek Hain.  And seeing that popular actors have been featured in the video version of the song, one is left to imagine which of the above films, the said song belongs to.

Fortunately, I did not have to struggle much to trace the details as it was amply clear that it was a stand-alone NFS (1962) patriotic song produced by Govt of India’s Films Division and sung with much gusto by Rafi Saab. Details of the said song are represented on our blog in this link here. Of all the composers Khayyam Saab scored music for the album thereby creating additional curiosity as well as confusion for me.

Now, an original film booklet sheet of 1969 film in which Mukesh has a solo is easily available on the net and is reproduced below.

For some strange reason, Mukesh’s name is missing in the list of playback singers. I am not sure if the song was dropped from the film soundtrack, but the solo does exist in audio form.

I have covered one post on Mukesh’s complete association with Usha Khanna – “Tera Mera Pyaar Koi, Aaj Kal Ki To Baat Nahin“, and two separate posts on his filmi (“Sab Tthaath Pada Reh Jaayega“) and NFS songs (“Na Hui Gar Mere Marne Se Tasalli Na Sahi“) under composer Khaiyyam. Many songs in the said three posts are still available for grabs for covering in the blog.

Coming to Mukesh’s combo with Jagjit Kaur, I have said in the beginning of the post that there is a solitary duet. It’s a surprise that the two artists did not collaborate more in spite of Mukesh seemingly to be close to Khayyam Saab family. However, we should remember that Khayyam Saab himself engaged Jagit Kaur sparingly for playback songs and relied more on the two Mangeshkar sisters.

As we are well aware, both Khayyam Saab and his wife Jagjit Kaur left for their heavenly abode in the very recent past.

Khayyam Saab:           18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019
Jagjit Kaur:                1930 – 15 August 2021

I pay tributes to both the artists and bring forth this duet of Jagjit Kaur and Mukesh from an unreleased film titled ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and composed by Khayyam Saab. Jagjit Kaur sings in unison with Mukesh and her voice is not heard separately. Such is the rarity of this only duet of the combo.

Song – Ram Kaho Ya Rahim Kaho Tum Krishn Kaho Ya Kareem Kaho  (Hum Ek Hain) (UR) (1960s) Singer – Mukesh, Jagjit Kaur (only in chorus with Mukesh), Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Khayyaam

rasmen hon yaa reet ke bandhan dhong hain saare
nadaanon ne aap kiye hain ye batwaare
wo hai sab ka aaj bhi us ko sab hain pyaare
deen yahi hai dharm yahi hai
maanavta ka maan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho

(aaa aaa aaa aaa)

tarse par bhagwan ke darshan kar na paaye
(aaa aaa aaa aaa)

sab par mandir dwaar khulen kab wo din aaye
(hmm hmm hmm hmm)

kab tak ye andher kahaan tak ye anyaay..ae..ae
kab tak ye andher kahaan tak ye anyaay..ae..ae
jis ne sabko ek banaaya
uska mat apmaan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho

awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

वो है अल्लाह
वो है ईश्वर
वो है मुक्ति धाम
एक नहीं सौ रूप हैं उसके
एक नहीं सौ नाम

राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

मंदिर मस्जिद एक हैं दोनों उसके आगे
उसकी लीला देख ना पाएँ महल अभागे
दुनिया रस्ता भूल गई है ऐसा लागे
मन में कोइ खोट रहे ना मन तब जागे
आपस में मतभेद ना बरतो
इतना मत अभिमान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो

तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

ज़ातें पातें वर्ग नियम सब झूठे सारे
रस्में हों या रीत के बंधन ढोंग हैं सारे
नादानों ने आप किए हैं ये बटवारे
वो है सबका आज भी उसको सब हैं प्यारे
दीन यही है धर्म यही है
मानवता का मान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी

कौन ये मंदिर द्वार खड़ा है शीश झुकाये
(आ आ आ आ)
तरसे पर भगवान के दर्शन कर ना पाये
(आ आ आ आ)
सब पर मंदिर द्वार खुलें कब वो दिन आए
(हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म)
कब तक ये अंधेर कहाँ तक ये अन्याय॰॰ए॰॰ए
कब तक ये अंधेर कहाँ तक ये अन्याय॰॰ए॰॰ए
जिसने सबको एक बनाया
उसका मत अपमान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो

Blog Day :

4929 Post No. : 16769

Today’s song is from a C grade film called Baghi Sardar (1956).

I remember once Atul ji had expressed his opinion that ‘many times the B and C grade films provide A grade music’. I tend to agree with his opinion on this issue. There are many examples of songs from costume, stunt, action and religious films which became very popular. Off hand I remember at least two songs. The first was “Zara Saamne To Aa O Chhaliye” from a religious film ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ (1957). It was sung by Lata and Rafi, written by Bharat Vyas and music was by SN Tripathi. This song not only became very popular, but it became the No. 1 song on Binaca Geet Mala for 4 weeks. The second was a Rafi song “Parwardigar e Aalam, Tera Hi Hai Sahara” from the film ‘Hatimtai’ (1956). There was another song also from this film”Jhoomti Hai Nazar Jhoomta Hai Pyaar” which too became very popular. This was a costume film.

Another example comes to my mind. A qawwaali from the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958), a costume film. This qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne” became very famous. This song also had the prestigious honor of being the 5000th song for this Blog on 13-11-2011. Further, it had an unique honor of having write ups from 3 stalwarts, namely Atul ji, Sudhir ji and Raja ji. Incidentally, earlier in 1935 also there was a film Al Hilal, first directorial venture of the great Mehboob Khan. This was a film made by Sagar Movietone. The songs of this film also became very popular. However, since the playback had not yet started then, no records were issued for these songs.

I used to like watching religious films because of the trick scenes of the films. I liked stunt and action films for their death defying stunts by the actors and I saw costume films because of their King, Queen and evil Vazir stories. Children liking such films, for the reasons given here, is understandable, but I wondered how adults and grown up people came to see such films. Later I learnt that there is a child hidden in every adult.

This child in some adults gets excited with magic, supernatural strength and fighting. Such people constituted the audience of B and C grade films. The audience for religious films constituted old adults, and ladies, who believed in God’s power. Film makers all over the world have always taken such people as their targets and films were made to attract them and satisfy their emotions.

Right from the First Silent film ‘Raja Harishchandra’ (1913), films have been made on religious stories. A vast nation like India provides plenty of folk tales and all these have been used to make films. In addition, Arabian Night stories of 1001 was yet another bumper source of masala for making interesting films. The 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and to some extent the 60’s had been making stunt / action / costume / religious films. In early films, till film ‘Aan’ (1952), the actors working in the films used to do all the stunts themselves. From this film, use of doubles and fight masters/composers started being used. In film ‘Aan’, the fights and the horses were managed by Azim Bhai and Douglas took care of fight scenes involving fencing. Same year, in films like ‘Sinbad Jahaazi’ (1952) and ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo) (1952), the south developed hero Ranjan (real name Ramnarayan Venkatraman Sarma) appeared on Hindi scene in Bombay and entertained us with his Olympic level fencing fights. Earlier he was seen in ‘Chandralekha’ (1948), ‘Nishan’ (1949) and ‘Mangala’ (1949) – remakes of their Tamil films. In the subsequent years these Fight Masters became ‘Action Directors’.

In the films from 1935 to the 1950s, Nadia and others used to perform the stunts themselves. In the 60’s – a decade dominated by romantic films, for heroes, the action was mostly relegated to the climax scenes to rescue the ‘Damsels in Distress’ ! The 60’s also saw the emergence of ‘The Action Hero’. The first film, where a hero dared to bare his chest for the first time, was in film ‘Phool Aur Patthar” (1966) and the action hero was born with Dharmendra !

The set of actors, directors, producers, banners and even the audience was fixed for such films. Certain theaters were earmarked to exhibit such films in every city and small town. Some heroes of these action films, later on, became directors for such movies e.g. Majnu, Kamran, Daljit, John Cavas etc. ‘Baghi Sardar’ (1956) was also directed by Majnu, who started his talkie film career with a parody film ‘Majnu’ (1935). Though his original name was Harold Lewis, he was branded as Majnu and he too continued with this name.

MAJNU – Harold Lewis was a Punjabi Christian. He was born on 2-11-1913. It is said that before joining films, Harold had worked in circus as a joker. He acted in 3 Silent films, including ‘Flames Of Flesh’ (1930).

He was the childhood friend of Roop K Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film, he chose Harold as the hero. Majnu was introduced as a leading man opposite Shyama Zutshi by producer/director Roop K Shorey in film ‘Majnu’ (1935) — a musical comedy satirizing the old story of Laila Majnu, produced, directed and shot in Lahore with Ghulam Haider as music director. With daring motorbike stunts and special effects, audiences were thrilled at the sight of Majnu strapped on the railway tracks by the villain.

The film was a success and RK Shorey repeated Majnu as the leading man in his next film, ‘Tarzan Ki Beti’ (1938). ‘Tarzan Ki Beti’ was hailed as the best jungle picture ever produced in India at the time. Filmed in the snowy Himalayas, the film topped its predecessor in its action sequences and placed Punjab on the entertainment map of India and the world.

Majnu appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films. He was also doing films with other producers. In 1942 he did a double role in ‘Nishani’ and in 1943 he directed his first film ‘Paapi’. Shorey also gave him a film ‘Badnami’ (1946) for direction and it was here that Majnu met IS Johar who wrote the story and dialogues of ‘Badnami’.

Majnu paired with IS Johar in ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), the debut film of Johar. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956). His last film with Johar was ‘Akalmand’ (1966).

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was ‘Majnu’ (1935) and his much delayed and released last film was ‘Shri Krishna Bhakti’ (1973). He acted in many Punjabi films also. He directed 8 films including ‘Paapi’ (1943), ‘Badnami’ (1946), ‘Son Of Alibaba’ (1955), ‘Tatar Ka Chor’ (1955), ‘Malika’ (1956), ‘Basre Ki Hoor’ (1956), ‘Baghi Sardar’ (1956), and his last film – ‘Chandu’ (1958).

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The cast of this film consisted of Daljit, Chitra, Majnu, Ameeta, Amarnath, Prithvipal, Shaikh, Helen, Kammo, Satish Batra, Ramesh Thakkar, Shakuntala, Kanchanmala, Jugal Kishore etc. The music for this film was given by composer BN Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us know who this BN Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali, in the early era of Hindi films – HCBali or Harishchandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering KL Saigal in the early 30s.

BN Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer and was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films. He gave music from ‘Bedard’ (1949) up to ‘Do Dilwaale’ (1973), a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film ‘Bahut Door’ (1940s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973. Though he composed music with a variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary, BN Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

“Jab Un Ka Khayal Aata Hai”, sung by Rafi in ‘Pehla Pehla Pyar’ was a copy of Rafi’s “Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai” by Hansraj behl. “Sapne Meine Saiyan Tum Aaya Na Karo” – Asha / Manna Dey song was a true copy of OP Nayyar’s “Ek Pardesi Mera Dil Le Gaya”, and “Tu Us Ka Kar Bhala” – Rafi in ‘Raja Vikram’ sang the same “Bhagwaan” tune as in “O Duniya Ke Rakhwaale” etc.

Today’s song also resembles some song, but I am unable to recollect exactly. If some reader recognizes the original song, please mention as your comment here.

lagi re lagi re lagi lagi re

lafde mein pado na jaane jigar
jhagde na karo yoon shaam pahar
paam papa pam paam papa pam
haahi hi hahai hi
are hum bhi hain tere deewaane
zara dekh lo humko ek nazar
bakta hai

ae husn ki mallika haan kar do
apna dil bhi gulzaar karo

haay kis’se aankhen chaar karoon

ooh haaye

We are celebrating fifty years of the year 1972. And we are adding on the blog, the movies of 1972, which so far have not been presented on the blog. There were total 131 movies released in the year 1972. We will be checking this list alphabetically and keep adding such movies which are still missing. In this ‘project’ our today’s movie is ‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’.

I was surprised that this movie has not been presented on the blog till now. I was under the impression that this movie has already been covered on the blog. Well, alphabetically ‘Gaon Hamaaraa Shehar Tumhaaraa’ is the forty-sixth movie from the year 1972 (as per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). In between from alphabet ‘D’ to ‘G’ we find one more movie ‘Fighter Sheela’ of which the songs and other information seems to be unavailable as of now.

*Note: – Songs for films ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Bharat Darshan’ and ‘Fighter Sheela’ seems to be unavailable as of now).

‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ is directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Films, Bombay. He is also the producer of this movie. This movie was presented by Rajendra Kumar. The star cast includes Rajendra Kumar, Rekha, Sujit Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Satyadeep, Shamsher, Aarti, Ajit Sachdev, Sundar, Bhagwan, Kamaldeep, Kanhaiyyalal and others.

Dialogues of this movie are written by Rajinder Krishan. And editing of this movie is done by Govind Dalwadi. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1972.

‘Gaaon Hamaaraa Shehar Tumhaaraa’ had four songs written by Rajinder Krishan and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle had given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

S No Song Title Singer/s
01 Nayi hawaa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chalaa Mohd Rafi
02 Ik pyaar karnewaale ne ik pyaar karnewaale se ye poochha Mohd Rafi
03 Kaise kahoon kis’se kahoon sharm ki hai baat Asha Bhonsle
04 Jaana hai jaana hai door kahin jaana hai Lata Mangeshkar

Today’s song is the first song in the movie, and it is played while the titles roll on. It is sung by Mohd Rafi, and on-screen Rajendra Kumar is lip-syncing the song. Rajendra Kumar is shown carrying his luggage and singing the song and telling the ‘gaaonwaalaas that he is going to ‘shehar’ now.

Some other artists, (whom I am unable to identify) can also be seen in the picturisation of this song which shows Rajendra Kumar’s journey from ‘village’ to ‘city’ and the city is none other than Bombay (current day Mumbai).

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to the today’s song

With the today’s song the movie ‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ makes its debut on the blog.

Song – Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala (Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara) (1972) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala

sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
paani ki boondon ke badle
harey note barsaataa hai
bhar letein hai jholi
jiska jitna zor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
deewaaron ko haath lagaao
to batti jal jaati hai
apne ghar to diya kabhi naa
saari raat jala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
dekha jaayega kismat mein
jo bhi likha hoga
nikal pade jab ghar se
kyun naa karega raam bhala aa
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala
aon Hamaara

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 08
———————————————–

14 Jan – Remembrance Day of Chitragupta

Chitragupta has recorded 260 plus songs with Rafi Sahab for Hindi and Bhojpuri films during the period 1950 to 1980.  Having gone through the whole list of these songs, I have come to the conclusion that I am a creature of radio.  The songs heard on radio long back ring a bell and I am drawn to them.  There are other well-known songs, which I had not heard on the radio as a child, they don’t make this short list of my personal favorites.

Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi Ke Ab Ye Des Hua Begaana

Chali Chali Re Patang Meri Chali Re

Laagi Chhoote Na Ab To Sanam

Deewaana Aadmi Ko Banaati Hain Rotiyaan

Teri Duniya Se Door Chale Ho Ke Majboor

Koi Bata De Dil Hai Jahaan

Mujhe Dard e Dil Ka Pata Na Tha

Jaag Dil e Deewaana Rut Jaagi Vasl e Yaar Ki

Ye Parbaton Ke Daayera Ye Shaam Ka Dhuaan

There are some songs, which I have discovered in recent years and written posts for them too.  But since I can’t recall the tune and the lyrics and the feel of the song, by just looking at the mukhda, is not the songs fault.  So, if some people find their personal favorites missing from the above list of Rafi Sahab’s solos and duets under Chitragupta, they can blame me.

 Today is the 31st death anniversary of veteran music director Chitagupta, who has composed 1000 plus song in his long career from 1940’s to 80’s. In commemoration, I am discussing a Rafi solo, composed by Chitragupta and written by Manohar Khanna for the film ‘Zindagi ke Mele’(1956). Only two songs from this film are posted in the blog.

Kar Le Ri Solah Singaar
Tu Meri Heroine Main Tera Hero

It is said that Chitragupta never reached the status of A grade music directors.  But from where I can see, it doesn’t make any difference in the long run.  Because his compositions have survived the test of time, just like most of the melodious and memorable work done by all the music directors of the golden era of Hindi film music.  The field was crowded in the 50’s with talented and established MD’s and also with new aspirants.  The songs of all the composers are equally appreciated and loved.  I have always found the unheard (by me) songs of Chitragupt, very melodious and likable, with a spirit of their own.  They make their mark and leave an impression, with their rustic flavor.  I always make it a point to listen to his songs whenever they appear in the blog, especially solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar.  500 of these songs are already posted in the blog, as can be seen in the table.

Chitragupta 500 139 movies (1057)
Manohar Lal Khanna 46

The song is lamenting the society and its remorseless, paralyzed state in the face of injustice.  ‘Duniya Waalon’ are the mute spectators of an unjust practice, which those suffering it do not deserve.  And those who standby and do nothing to stop the injustice, cruelty and ugliness in the society are to be equally held responsible, because they had the means to oppose the practice and should have raised their voices.  But they chose to do nothing, and there have been very few social reformers in India who have actively worked to stop this practice of ‘dahej’.  The experience of civilizational development has shown that making criminal laws, has not worked in reducing the crimes.  Crimes continue to increase, despite stringent laws.  The reforms have to stem from the value system in the society.   Like many other social evils, the ‘dahej’ and dowry system has become a part of the landscape in our enlightened society.  Here we think that we are the culture and we have learnt to turn the other way, in the name of civilized and appropriate behavior.

The truth camouflaged into lies and lies camouflaged as truth.

The movie title ‘Zindagi Ke Mele’ reminds me of the iconic song, this unforgettable Rafi solo :

ye zindagi ke mele
ye zindagi ke mele
duniyaa mein kam na honge
afsos ham na honge


Song – Saji Sajaai Dulhan Reh Gayi Baabul Neer Bahaaye (Zindagi Ke Mele) (1956) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Manohar Khanna, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

dhan se baandhe..ea

beh gaye armaan
aansoo ban ke

phool bane angaaray
baap chhupaaye

aaj sharam ke maare
maiyya roye
sau sau aansoo
dwaar se doli
lauti jaaye
o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye
saji sajaayi
dulhan reh gayi
baabul neer bahaaye
o duniyaa waalo

dhan ke liye
nirdhan ki beti
ho oo oooo

duniyaa ki in rasmon ko
bhagwaan aag lag jaaye..ea..ea
bhagwaan aag lag jaaye
maathhe lagaa hai daag jo kaala
iss ko kaun mitaaye
o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye
saji sajaayi
dulhan reh gayi
baabul neer bahaaye
o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye

धन से बान्धे॰॰ए

फूल बने अन्गारे
बाप छुपाये

आज शरम के मारे
मैय्या रोये
सौ सौ आन्सू

लौटी जाये
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा न्याय
सजी सजाई

भग्वान आग लग जाये॰॰ए॰॰ए
भग्वान आग लग जाये
माथे लगा है दाग जो काला
इस को कौन मिटाये
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा न्याय
सजी सजाई
दुल्हन रह गयी
बाबुल नीर बहाये
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा न्याय
