The recent months have been very different for me as I was going through many things including many thoughts going through my mind. (I will be trying to put them in my write-ups and present them in future on the blog.).

There was a busy work schedule at work whole of July-August as we shifted the whole warehouse from one place to another (around 10 kms from original location). Thereafter it was getting settled at new location and matching the speed with the requirements of Production in the factory. Add to this the daily travel to reach the workplace and coming back to home. I was not getting into the right mood of writing.

And that is the reason I was less active on the blog. But I was never away from listening music and even watching movies in theaters. I had always loved watching movies in theaters and it gives me immense pleasure. So far in the recent one month I have watched four movies in the theaters. I enjoyed all of them.
On the other hand I was getting my daily dose of listening radio especially Vividh Bharati on FM every morning and evening on my way to office and back.

There have been many songs which I get to listen on radio for the first time and in many cases I always wish that I would present them on the blog. But as the days passed I tend to forget the songs listened. The program in the evening, which I listened to most, plays non-stop Hindi song and doesn’t mention the movie-name the songs are from. So over the period, it slips and after few months I get reminded of such songs again or even the songs get played on after a long gap in the same program.

Today’s song is one such song which I had first listened almost more than one and half-year back. I had then thought to present this on the blog. Because this song is a very nice song or rather a gem of a song but not much heard, may be because it is not from the golden period of Hindi songs.

This song is from the film ‘Maashuka’ (1987).

‘Maashuka’ was directed by Arati Bhattacharya for Harshavardhan Films.

She had also written the story of this movie. (Aarti Bhattacharya was a Bengali actress who also worked in Bhojpuri and Hindi movies as actress, script writer and director. From the information given on her wiki page I guess that the actor in his movie Kunaal is the same person whom she married, and who also was an Bhojpuri actor. There is information available on Aarti Bhattacharya on internet which needs to be compiled in detail for presentation).

The film was produced by Rajiv Ranjan Singh. It had Kunaal, Moonmoon Sen, Arun Govil, and Zarina Wahab, with Shoma Anand. Sachin had a friendly appearance in this movie and then there was Amjad Khan above all of them. Paintal, Murli, Asha Sharma, Master Ravi, Bhagwan Sinha, Shivraj, Mukesh Kumar, Anwar, Fanu, Dharm Raj, Maharana, Ratan, Birender, Sushil Yadav, Master Akash, Gupta, Harisharan, S. Madan, Prabha Mishra and others. Pradeep Kumar also had a special appearance in this movie.

Dulal Dey was the screenplay writer and associate director of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Nawab Arzoo.
Editing of this film was done by Bibhuti Bhushan. S Tewari and RK Aroon had written the lyrics of the songs in this movie. Asha Bhonsle, Suresh Wadkar, Shabbir Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Manhar, Ratna Aroon, Subhash and Kunal have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by RK Aroon. This name is new for me and I am not aware much about this music director. Also there is very less information available about him.

This movie had total six songs. Today we listen to a song from this movie which is sung by Shabbir Kumar and penned by Shardanand Tewary.

I think both the lyricist and the music director will make their debut on the blog with the debut of this movie on the blog today.

Incidentally, when I remembered this song on 26th October and checked for biographical details of Shabbir Kumar it was his sixty-ninth birthday on that day. He was born on 26th October 1954.

We belatedly wish Shabbir Kumar a very happy birthday on the blog.

Shabbir Kumar has sung many songs in the eighties and nineties and I too like many of his songs which I would like to present here in follow-up posts.

For today, let us enjoy this wonderful song …

On screen, it is actor Kunaal lip-syncing the song and also seen in the picturisation of this song are Moonmoon Sen and Arun Govil.


Song-Chaand gagan mein hai tanha (Maashuka)(1987) Singer-Shabbir Kumar, Lyrics-Shardanand Tewary, MD-RK Aroon

Lyrics

chaand gagan mein hain tanhaa
wo bhi tanhaa
main bhi tanhaa aa
saaraa aalam tanhaa tanhaa aa
tanhaa tanhaa
chaand gagan mein hain tanhaa
wo bhi tanhaa
main bhi tanhaa aa
saaraa aalam tanhaa tanhaa aa
tanhaa tanhaa
chaand gagan mein ae hai tanhaa aa

tum mere saath thhe ae
saath thhi raushni ee ee
tum mere saath thhe
saath thhi raushni ee ee
gham ke rishton se
anjaan thhi zindagi ee
par ik mod par
chal diye chhod kar
waqt ke saath tum bhi mujhe ae
tanhaa aa aa
saaraa aalam tanhaa tanhaa
tanhaa tanhaa aa
chaand gagan mein hai tanhaa aa

naa hamdam koyi ee ee
naa koyee ee manzil
naa hamdam koyi
naa koyee manzil
meri kashti kaa koyee nahin saahil
shikwaa karne se kya
hoga ab haasil
zindagi ab kategi meri ee
tanhaa aa aa
saaraa aalam tanhaa tanhaa
tanhaa tanhaa
chaand gagan mein hai tanhaa aa
wo bhi tanhaa
main bhi tanhaa aa
saaraa aalam tanhaa tanhaa aa
tanhaa tanhaa
chaand gagan mein ae hai tanhaa aa

चाँद गगन में है तन्हा
वो भी तन्हा
मैं भी तन्हा
सारा आलम तन्हा तन्हा
तन्हा तन्हा
चाँद गगन में है तन्हा
वो भी तन्हा
मैं भी तन्हा
सारा आलम तन्हा तन्हा
तन्हा तन्हा
चाँद गगन में है तन्हा

तुम मेरे साथ थे
साथ थी रोशनी
तुम मेरे साथ थे
साथ थी रोशनी
ग़म के रिश्तों से
अंजान थी ज़िंदगी
पर इक मोड़ पर
चल दिये छोड़ कर
वक़्त के साथ तुम भी मुझे
तन्हा॰ ॰ ॰
सारा आलम तन्हा तन्हा
तन्हा तन्हा
चाँद गगन में है तन्हा॰ ॰ ॰

ना हमदम कोई
ना कोई मंज़िल
ना हमदम कोई
ना कोई मंज़िल
मेरी कश्ती का
कोइ नहीं साहिल
शिकवा करने से
क्या होग अब हासिल
ज़िंदगी अब कटेगी मेरी
तन्हा॰ ॰ ॰
सारा आलम तन्हा तन्हा
तन्हा तन्हा

चाँद गगन में है तन्हा॰ ॰ ॰
वो भी तन्हा
मैं भी तन्हा
सारा आलम तन्हा तन्हा
तन्हा तन्हा
चाँद गगन में है तन्हा॰ ॰ ॰

Dear Avinash ji,

“The program in the evening, which I listened to most, plays non-stop Hindi song ….”

Could you please mention the name of the Channel as also the Program and, if possible, the FM frequency?

ARATI BHATTACHARYA is well known to avid fans of old Bangla Films like me. IMHO, her best performance was in the 1972 Film “STREE” where she was cast against Uttam Kumar and Soumitra Chatterjee.

Looking forward to more regular Posts from you.

With warm regards

PARTHA CHANDA

Thanks for your comments Partha ji.
The program I listen to is ‘Shaam Sinduri’ on Vividh Bharati at 17:00 hrs onwards till 18:45 IST. I listen to it at 93.90 FM here at Vadodara. Advertisements are also played in between. May be because this is a FM channel.

I had also noted it earlier but later could not find the link and some sources also mentioned the lyricist name as S. Tiwari.
However from the record image link shared by you, I think the lyricist is R.K. Aroon. I would request our editors to please review and conclude for correction.
Regards,

I guess the lyricist of this song as per above provided vinyl image of the movie is R.K.Aroon(the music director himself)

S.Tiwari/Shardanand Tewary the Lyricist wrote only one song for this movie i.e.,Chunri bheegee jaaye(sung by Suresh Wadkar & Ratnaa Aroon)
Corrections Please…………

And the Hero Kunal is also known as Kunal Singh(Bhojpuri actor/Politician) and the director Arati Bhattacharya is also credited as Arati Bhattacharjee in some places like on the vinyl record image of the movie….
