Today’s song is a rare song from a C grade Stunt film-Khooni Laash-43. This film was made by Amrit pictures. The name of Producer or the Director of this film is not mentioned in HFGK. This is one of the several problems of the C grade Stunt/ Action films, made on shoestring budgets. Most times the film booklet was not issued and in maximum cases the song records were also not issued commercially. In some films, selected songs are available on records. In the cast also only 4 names are given. The music director was K.Narayan Rao.

K. Narayan Rao is known to be a composer of C grade action/stunt films. No book or Encyclopedia gives information about his Bio data. All the information is available only via the HFGK only.

The first film of K Narayan Rao seems to be Madari Mohan-40, where he joined hands with another composer Prof. B R Deodhar. In 1943 he gave music to Pistolwali,Khazanchi Ka beta,Khooni Laash and Duniya Deewani.In 44,it was Lehri Cameraman and Qatil. In 46,he gave music to Royal mail, Khooni, Reporter, Maaf Kijiyega and Dhokebaaz. In 47-Extra Girl, Chabuk sawar and Sher E Bangal. In 48-Bahadur Naresh, Jungle Goddess, and white Face. 1949-Jagriti, Nakli Baap, Chunnu Munnu and Billi. 1950- Meri Asha and Meherbani. Then in 1959 came his last film with Lacchhiram- Hazar Pariyan. Thus he gave music to 25 films, but not even one film was a Hit, nor was any of his songs famous.

People like Narayan Rao reflect the kind of artistes that were used in C grade films. The audience of such films was typical. They were not worried about the film story or the songs. All that they looked for was sensational dangerous stunts, fighting, a little raw comedy and a reasonably good looking Heroine. With these basic requirements, stunt films did not need well known actors, MDs, Directors or story writers. These films touched the baser emotions of the audience which was generally the lower strata of the society, daily earners and uneducated lot.

Most of us like to see films, be it on a TV, in a cinema hall, or through DVD. Some like old films, some like new films.

Did you ever see films like, Khooni Khanzar, Dagabaj Doctor, Shaitaan ka paash, Char chakram, Daku Rani Talwarwali, Jaadu ka dandaa, Zinda Laash, Revolver Rani, Sindbad-Alladin-Alibaba, Flying man, Fighter Sheela, Khooni Darinda, Tarzan aur Jadugar, Tarzan aur Jadui Chiraag, Golden Gang, Murde ki jaan khatare mein,or Jadui putli ?

I bet none of these movie names have been even heard by you ever. These were all STUNT FILMS or in other words ‘C’ grade films.

In India I really wonder how the classification or Grading of films was done, or who was the person or the body authorised to do it. Censor Certificates do not label A B or C grades at all. Then how does this happen ?

My guess is that films are graded on 2 counts- One, The cost of production or Budget and the class of stars in it and Two, The class of people for whom the film is made or directed, like the Rich, middle and the Poor class. Whatever the basis, there is a very thin line between A and B grade films, while between these two and the C grade films, the line is very Bold and thick indeed !

Stunt films, Costume films, fantasy films and purely Religious films were normally treated as C grade films. These film did not carry any prestige, the actors working in them were exclusive to C grade films, the production values and the budget was quite low and most important, they were ALWAYS shown in theatres situated in older parts of the town, single screens, or only for Morning shows or in Theatres generally frequented by lower strata of society.

A person seeing/loving or craving for such films was generally considered a ‘Low’ creature and a person with ‘child brain’.

In India ,this was the fate of C grade films. Actually these films had everything that A and B grade films had, like, story, songs, dances, fights etc, but still, the treatment given to handling of the story etc in the films was very poor or lacking in expertise.

Stunts have improved, Technology has evolved but the participation of Zippy the Monkey, Tiger the Horse, Moti the Dog, parrots, snakes and khatara cars named Rolls Royce ki beti and Austin ki Bachhi is missing ! The contribution of Fearless Nadia in making Stunt films popular can not be denied, but then she had the backing of companies like Wadia Movietone, Basant Pictures, Ranjit, Sagar, National etc. When you read the stories of these films please don’t employ Logic or common sense to it.
This was a different world altogether. The set of actors was fixed, many times the composers were unheard of or they were known composers now in bad shape, the Directors were typical and the production houses were exclusive to churn out such films.

It is, nevertheless, a fact that many well known and famous actors and actresses of the 40s and 50s evolved from the stunt films of yore. Examples are Jairaj or Master Bhagwan.Can you believe that this roly-poly Bhagwan dada was a great body-builder when he started in stunt films in the late 20s and 30s ? Lalita Pawar(Amboo), Madhuri, Rampyari, Miss Moti, Sabita Devi, and Sulochana (Ruby Myers) are some female examples who graduated to Social films via Stunt films.

C grade films were those films which were made by not so famous banners, almost unknown actors directors and composers. Usually C grade films used to be action/stunt films, made on shoestring budgets, having a fixed storyline resembling Tarzan, Hercules or Hollywood action films of Robin Hood, with the background of a jungle, Tribal people, King-Queen-wicked Vazir and similar stories.

C grade films were always quickies, made on shoe-string budgets. During the late 30s and 40s, Master Bhagwan action films used to be completed in about Rs. 50,000 only- including studio rent, sets, artistes’ fees and other expenses. C grade films had a captive audience comprising factory workers, daily wagers, Low grade earners and students. However, such films used to rake in big profits to the film makers. Therefore, even top class banners sometimes made C grade films, to make up their losses in big film flops.

There were certain production houses specialised and thriving on such films, like Paramount films, Jagriti films, Mohan pictures, Wadia Movietone etc etc. The actors and actresses of such films were fixed. Since the studio system was in vogue, the film studios usually had their actors and directors fixed. Music directors were of no consequence, so anybody would do. Well known composers like C.Ramchandra used to take another name while composing music for C grade action films. Music assistants of famous composers used to give music to such films. Well known composers falling on bad days also gave music to such films. C grade films rarely made Commercial records for their film songs, so such songs are a real rarity even with big collectors.

Some common and regular names one found in Action/Stunt films are, Nadia, Boman Irani, Sayani, Bilimoria bros, Cooper sisters, Zohra Khatun, Ameena Khatun, Khatun Bai, Prakash, Adjania, Noorjehan (sr.), Moosa Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan, Azim bhai, Basheer, Ali, Bachha, Chandra Rao, Harishchandra Rao, Shankar Rao, Master Bhagwan, Mirajkar, Jamshed, John Cavas, Lalita Pawar, Navin chandra…and many such names.

Barring a few names like Lalita Pawar, Bhagwan, Nadia etc, all the other action film actors remained unknown. No one knows anything about them.Actors like Baburao pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan ( He was the Hero in the First Gujarati Talkie film ‘ Narsi Mehta ‘), Chandra Rao, Sayani etc were quite famous in their times, but except their Filmography (thanks to HFGK), nothing more is known about them. All of them ended with only mere names !

Sometimes Gems were found in these C grade films. Remember the famous qawali- Hamen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne- which had the honour of becoming the prestigious 5000th song in this Blog ? This was from a C grade film- AL HILAL-58

In my young age I was fond of stunt films and used to travel to theatres in Old city of Hyderabad, to watch films featuring Kamran (father of famous choreographer and Director Farah khan and Director, comedian, Anchor Sajid Khan), Naazi, Bhagwan and many such actors.” Adventures of captain marvel and Trip to the Moon” were my favourites from Hollywood’s Republic Serial productions.

In the 50s and 60s,some respectability to these stunt films was brought by actors like Mahipal, Ranjan, Dara Singh, Azad, Hemant Birje etc. The set of Heroines was also set to Mumtaz, Tabassum,Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Nishi etc. Mumtaz started with Stunts and graduated to greater heights and was counted in Top actresses of her days. Costume and Stunt films like Baaz, Insaniyat and Azaad etc were made respectable by the stars acting in them.Interestingly, some famous actresses like Meena Kumari, Shobhana Samarth,Nirupa Roy, etc had acted in stunt C grade films initially.

Over a period the picture changed and nowadays every alternate film has breath-taking stunts done by almost all top Heroes, thanks to SFX, of course !

I am not aware about the film’s story or other details. The cast shown in HFGK is Baburao (Pehalwan), Shanta Rin, E.Bilimoria and Ali. Obviously Eddie Bilimoria was the hero and Shanta Rin must have been the Heroine. Dinshaw and Eddie Billimoria were the brothers who were active from silent films upto films of 50’s decade through the Talkie era, but they always featured in C grade films and hence even their long careers did not make them big stars.

Today’s song from this film is sung by Naseem Akhtar. In fact this was her first hindi film in Bombay for which she sang songs. Naseem Akhtar ‘s father was a Sarangi player. They were originally from Kashmir. She was born in 1924. She started singing on Lahore Radio. Impressed with her singing style,composer pt. Amarnath gave her a break in Nishani-1942. Till then she used to sing at rich people’s functions and mehfils etc. after Nishani,she came to Bombay to sing for Khooni Laash-43.She never acted in any films.She sang in Bhai, Ek din ka Sultan, 40 karod, Flat no.9, Pehli nazar, Ratnavali, Dharma, Sanyasi, Wamiq Azra, Tadbir, Shahjehan, Nek Parveen, Safar, Keemat, Sohni Mahiwal, Bhanwar, Ek Roz, Doli, Parai aag etc. She sang for Naushad, Ghulam Mohd, Anil Biswas, Shyamsunder, Ghulam Hyder, Rafiq Gaznavi, Govind Ram, Sajjad Hussain, Firoze Nizami and C.Ramchandra.

She sang 72 songs in 40 films in India. She left for Pakistan after Partition and sang in a few films, but was not successful. She got married and settled as a housewife. It seems she died in Lahore on 11-5-2007 at the age of 87 years.

With this song, film Khooni Laash-1943 makes its Debut on this Blog.

“Dhuen Ki Lakeer-1974” was directed by Kishore Sahu for ‘Rupanjali Productions Ltd, Bombay’. It had Parveen Babi, Ramesh Arora, Dinu Harish, Preeti Ganguly (all four making their debuts in Hindi Cinema), Aatm Prakash, Urmila Bhatt, Pinchoo Kapoor, Lalita Kumari, Major Sudan, Montu, Malini Bhatia, Uma Dutt, Ashalata, Ved Sharma, Khalid, Rajkumar and others.

03 Teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein Nitin Mukesh, Vani Jairam Rameshwar Tyagi 18.01.2009

It can be seen in above table three lyricist contributed four songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Shamji Ghanshamji who also making his debut as music director with this movie.

I think this was an obscure movie of its time though I am aware of one song from this movie i.e., ‘teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein’ (I vaguely remember to have heard this song on a rainy night on radio in my childhood days and since then I have never forgotten it 😊 ). Also, this song seems to be the only known song from this movie.

Today 20th January 2021 is the ‘sixteenth remembrance anniversary’ (04.04.1954 – 20.01.2005) of one of the beautiful actresses of the seventies Parveen Babi. I have watched many of her movies and liked her performance in all of them. I am going to list all her movies and I leave it for yet another post in the future on her.

On this occasion here is a song from this movie ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer-1974’. This movie had made its debut on the blog on 18.01.2009. Since that day, 4385 days have passed while this movie is represented in the blog with just this one song i the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Ajit Singh and Krishna Kalle and on screen it is performed by Ramesh Arora and Parveen Babi respectively.

Pinchoo Kapoor, Urmila Bhatt and many others can also be seen in the picturization of this song.

The blog ten year challenge series is in progress in the blog since 2019. The current blog ten year challenge (2011-2021) has not yet picked up steam because very few songs were discussed during the initial days of 2010. That year even had a few DOT days during the first few days of the year.

This day ten year ago (viz 20 january 2010) saw just one song getting discussed, and that one song was from “Anjaan”(1956). This movie cannot be taken up for Blog Ten year challenge today because the movie has already been YIPPEED.

So what to do ? “Anjaan”(1956) may have been YIPPEED in the blog, but “Anjaan”(1941) is not. So let me discuss a song from “Anjaan”(1941) today. 🙂

“Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

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

Here is the fourth song from “Anjaan”(1941) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rajkumari. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pannalal Ghosh.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knoledgeable readers to thro light on the picturisation of the song.

PS-Our regular visitor Ammj Wijesiriwardene points out that the video of the song is available. From the video, we see that the song is picturised as a stage performance song where one lady, flanked by two others, lip syncs this song and that is performed by their dance accompanied by a dholak player, as this performance is watched by a housefull audience in a haveli. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

Today’s song is from the film Khush Naseeb-46. It was an ordinary social film made by Indra Movietone. Directed by V. panchotiya, the film had music by Anupam Ghatak and Pt. Lachhiram Tomar. We do not know who wrote the film’s 12 songs or even who sang these songs. Only few songs(actually only 2) are available on YouTube and the uploader ( Sadanand Kamath ji) has identified singers by voice, wherever possible. The limited cast mentioned in HFGK lists names as Padma Devi, Rukmini Devi, Anjali Roy, Bela Rani and V.Panchotiya. This too being incomplete, we do noit have any idea about its Hero or other artistes.

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The II world war had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created Black marketing. This made many people Millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in Film making. The increased cost of Raw Films made filmmaking 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased in Lakhs instead of thousands.

In 1945, only 74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Further, in 1947, the film industry produced a record number of films – 181, but of course that was due to Partition. The quality of films was sacrificed at the cost of the quantity of films made in 1946. However, some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of filmmaking.

Film Dharati ke Lal-46 was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. Neecha Nagar-46 won the Grand Prix award in French Film Festival. Film Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46 was dubbed in English as ‘ The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946.

Year 1946 also saw the Debut of several stars and artistes. In fact one can call 1946 as the ” Debut year” of Hindi film industry. See this….

Nirupa Roy debuted in film Amar Raaj-46

Geeta Bali debuted with a dance in film Badnaami-46

Geeta Roy sang her first film song in film Bhakta Prahlad-46

Balraj Sahni debuted in film Insaaf-46. It was a small role,though.

K A Abbas-Director, Pt.Ravi Shankar-MD, Balraj Sahni as Hero and Damayanti Sahni as Heroine made their Debut in film Dharati Ke Lal-46

Meena kapoor sang her first Hindi film song in film Eight Days-46

Sudhir Phadke debuted as MD in film Gokul-46

P L Santoshi as Director, Dev Anand, Rehman, Rehana and Kamla Kotnis debuted as actors in film Hum Ek Hai-46

Chitragupta did his first film as MD in Lady Robin Hood-46

Ram Ganguly became MD with film Maharana Pratap-46

Abhi Bhattacharya debuted in film Milan-46

Chetan Anand as Director, Uma Anand and Kamini kaushal as actresses debuted in film Neecha Nagar-46

Hansraj Behl debuted as MD with film Pujari-46

Madhubala(as Baby Mumtaz) sang her first song in film Pujari-46

Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote his first Hindi film song in film Shahjahan-46

S D Burman as MD and Kishore Kumar as an actor debuted with film Shikari-46

So, you will find the year 1946 was truly an year of change. The winds of Partition were already blowing and the second line of supplementary artistes was ready to replace the Migrators, after the Partition.

Film Khush Naseeb-46 was directed by V.Panchotiya. Vithaldas Panchotiya ( 15 th October 1906 to 2-10-1987 ). Except those readers, who have a knowledge of early era Hindi films, it is unlikely that other readers might have even heard this name. In the early era, when the studio system was firmly established, the artistes employed by the studio had no specific duties. Anybody and everybody had to do what was needed by the company. Due to this many capable artistes became all rounders in film making.
Vithaldas Panchotiya was certainly one such person. He has been a Producer, Director, story writer, dialogue writer, screenplay writer, lyricist, Singer, Music Director and God knows what else !

Born in October 1906 in Vadnagar in Gujarat, he followed his father’s footsteps. His father worked in stage dramas and toured with the drama company. From the age of 8 years Vithaldas started acting in dramas. Later he joined Calcutta’s Alfred Drama company, owned by Madon Theatres Limited. He worked on a salary of Rs. 35 pm. While working in dramas, he established his own Gujarat Film company and produced 12 silent films in 10 years. Vithaldas first acted in silent film ‘ Dhruv charitra’-1921. He learnt dance and music too. He acted , directed, sang songs and gave music also. He acted in Talkie film ” Muflis Ashiqe”-1932, claimed to be India’s first comedy film. He acted, sang and composed music for this film.

Being a staunch Gandhian, he used to participate in rallies etc. Some of his films were Hindustan-32, Insaf ki Tope-34, Gaibi Gola-35 ( he was the writer and the director too.He gave a break to Baby Noorjahan in this film.), Khudai Khidamadgar-37 aka Garib ki Tope, Takdir ki Tope-38 etc . As per one source, he acted in 35 films, directed 10 talkie films, sang 8 songs, gave music to 1 film and wrote Lyrics to 2 films. Additionally story, dialogues and screenplay writing were also done by him. Some of his films were, Shaikh chilli-37, Khush naseeb-46, Prabhu ki maya-55, Ghar ki numaish-49, Karmaveer-38, Raman-54, Jagriti-54, Hum sab chor hain-56, Basant 60, Bhagvat mahima etc.

I find it very difficult to know exactly how many films he did in various capacities in the 1930s, as there are conflicting claims by him and Master Fida Hussain. In a few cases the details in HFGK and what he claims, gets contradicted. Some of his films in the 40s are Ramanuj-43, Giribala-47, Grihalaxmi-48, Ghar ki Numaish-48 ( released only in 1962, with the title ‘ Jai ho muhabbat ki ‘ )

Thanks to information and statistical data provided by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji of Surat, we know that his Filmography consists of a total 11+ 26 films. The break up is-

11 silent films
25 Talkie films as Actor and 1 film as a writer only.
9 films as a Director
2 films as Lyricist and
2 films as Music Director
As per Muvyz data, he sang 37 songs in 8 films.

from 1951 to 1960, he did 13 films- mostly ( 9) for Filmistan. He directed 2 of them. After 1960 his work was reduced. The death of his 3 sons broke him emotionally. As a true Gandhian, it was his dream to make a film- Gandhi Sangram- on mahatma Gandhi. He had done all the spade work and the Muhurat of shooting was also done on 2-10-1987, The Government had promised finance. Even Rajiv Gandhi promised him that. However nothing came to him and he died on 30-10-1996, with his dream unfulfilled.

His daughter Shradha used to work in Gujarati films. She too died in a Train accident in 2000. Her daughter Deepshikha is an actress.

I do not know the story or any other details of this film. Here is the first song from film Khush Naseeb-46,sung by an unidentified male and Zeenat Begum. With this song film Khush Naseeb-46 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Blog Day :

4567 Post No. : 16168

‘Radio days’ are here again for me. My new workplace is around 55 kms from my residential place, so it takes me around one hour or little a more than that, to reach office.

That gives me a good one-hour time in the morning and in the evening to tune in to ‘Vividh Bharati’.

In the morning my day starts normally with ‘Bharat Ki Goonj’, and in the evening it is ‘Shaam Sindoori’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’ and some part of ‘Jailmala’ if the ‘traffic’ on the way is more.

In the past two months I have got to listen many many songs which includes songs of ‘golden era’, new songs (from eighties onwards) and current or latest songs too.

Also, they include songs known to me and songs that I do not remember to have heard earlier. And the very latest songs which are totally new for me 😊

Today I am presenting one song of yesteryears which I liked a lot. This song is from the movie ‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’. I have not watched this movie and I was not aware of its details. But I liked this duet song (today’s) very much. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mohd Rafi. I do not remember this song getting included in any of the ‘song compilations’ brought out by HMV on audio cassettes in the eighties and nineties.

After listening to today’s song, I checked its details and watched its video. The song is lip-synced by Dheeraj and Vaishali on screen.

‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’ was directed by Rajesh Nahta for ‘Ranglok Productions, Bombay’. It had Dheeraj Kumar, Vaishali, Jayshree T., Rajendra Nath, Shatrughan Sinha, Manorama, Harindranath Chatopadhyay, Gajanan Jagirdar, Hercules, Vitthal, Praveen Pal, Shefali, Wajid Khan, Jeevan and others.

‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’ had seven songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by the Rahul Dev Burman.

The details of the songs as listed in HFGK (Vol-IV, 19611-1970) is as given below;

S.No. Song Singer/s Posted on the Blog on
01 Raaton kaa raajaa hoon main Mohd Rafi 26.10.2014

Total upto 1963 684 movies 2209 2609 1830 594 135 48

It can be seen from the table of 1963 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 111 songs in movies released in 1963. As many as 103 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 37 movies of 1963 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 31 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 8 Lata songs belonging to 6 movies of 1963 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Bhootnath”(1963). This stunt movie was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Sevak Films, Bombay. The movie had Vijaya Chaudhary, Ranjan, MohanChoti, Rajan Haksar, Jeeankala, Ulhas, Kundan, Prem Sagar, Dan Singh, Lal Bahadur, Dalda, Roshanlal, Kumar Sahu, Laxmi Chhaaya, Chanda, Ameer, Daood, Shaida, Sundar, Nazeer Kashmiri etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it, including two Lata Mangeshkar solos. To songs from the movie (inclusding one Lata Mangeshkar solo has been covered in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Bhootnath”(1963). Keshav Trivdi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vedpal.

This lesser known song is a lovely song to listen to. The song is picturised on Vijaya Chaudhary I guess. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady lip syncing the song.Listening to this song, the first thought that crossed my mind was that this song is a hidden gem that deserved to be better known.


Song-Bhoole se kar liya pyaar (Bhootnath)(1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Keshav Trivedi, MD-Vedpal

Lyrics

bhoole se kar liya
bhoole se kar liya
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani ee
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani
deke jiya anmol
leli
ho o o
deke jiya anmol
leli badnaami
bhoole se kar liya pyar
ho gayi naadaani
bhoole se kar liya

kiski nazar ne dil par haaye
kiski nazar ne dil par haaye
jaadu sa kar daala
kiski meethhi yaad me naache
man mera matwaala
ho man mera matwaala
raah take hain kiski ankhiyaan
ho o
raah take hain kiski ankhiyaan
deewaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani ee
bhoole se kar liya

meethha meethha dard nasheela
meethha meethha dard nasheela
phail gaya nas nas mein
naa main apne bas mein rahi
naa manwa apne bas mein
naa manwa apne bas mein
khaali suhaani chot karli
ho o
khaali suhani chot karli manmaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani

76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar
————————————————————

Gham-e-dil sunnane ko jee chaahtaa hai
Tumhen aazmaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Sunaa hai ke jab se bohat door ho tum
Bohat door jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Unhen ham se koyi shikaayat nahin hai
Yunhi rootth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Faqat hai yahi unn ki nazron ka dhokaa
Ke dhoke mein aane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Duaa hai ke ham se woh sau baar rootthen
Hamaara manaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Nazar wo na aayen par unn ki gali mein
Yunhi aane jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

—————————————————-
I could not find whose ghazal is this is, but giving it here as it rhymes with the title of the movie ‘Dil Chahta hai” (2001).

The song is a duet by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. All the songs of this film are penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. At the turn of the century, the melodious songs, sufiana, fusion, newer music instruments were all the new fad. And the foreign location shoots were also back with a bang in mainstream hindi films. It was not only the Yash Chopra films that were shot in Switzerland etc. There is the whole world to explore and Hindi films have been shot at many locations.

The film ‘Dil chahta hai’(2001) was shot at Australia, when the character Akash played by Amir Khan, moves to Sydney to look after his father business operation in Australia. The character of Akash was the meaty one in the film, with all the jokes to crack, all the drama to enact. It was the role of Sameer played by Saif Ali Khan that was less complex, understated but full of contradictions. Akshaye Khanna’s character was Siddarth, the quite sensitive artist, who looks at the world through the artistic eye.

I saw the movie again recently after this last post and thought again, that it is hard to believe that it is a 20 year old movie. Obviously made at the turn of the century, it has those vintage mobile phones, which look like antiques to today’s generation. Our generation has seen the most sweeping changes in lifestyle, of all the previous generations. The earlier generations, had very less comforts than us but I dare say their happiness quotients was higher than us, as they had less expectations and desires. The more our generation has achieved, it wants more of it, the comforts and the excitement, and thus losing out on the contentment in life.

Moving to the film, it has a few one liner jokes that have become a part of lingo between friends in my generation, like “hum log cake khaane ke liye kahin bhi jaa sakte hain”, ‘Waise bhi perfection ko improve karna mushkil hotaa hai”, ‘Kitni ajeeb baat hai, ke ham teenon hi Sydney jaa rahe hain – tum, main aur yeh flight” wagera wagera !

The song of this post is a duet by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, with composers producing unique musical sounds, using newly invented music instruments. The song is shot in and around Sydney, in parks showing ancient trees, with Amir and Priety take the arial tour in a helicopter, overlooking the famous Lotus shaped Opera house at the famous harbor, picnic in the garden near the marina, travel in the city bus etc. I am not sure if one of the parks shown is the Botanical garden or not. The characters are having food at the cafes, and roaming around down town or up town whichever way you want to look at it, walking the harbour bridge which has the railway, road and walkway on the same level, while singing this song. Literally a steel sheet re-enforced ghat is shown to emphasis the line ‘pyaar ke ghat jo utarte hain’, which is carpeted with Chinese grass :-).

After one such outing the couple is returning home by the metro train, when Priety misses it, and left alone at the platform, while the train moves away. While Priety is waiting, an old man looking like a poor street person is approaching her and she is scared. At the same time Aamir returns by the returning train, and seeing that the old man has scared Preity, goes and hugs the old man saying ‘did she scare you?” ‘she did? how mean of her”. This is a movie and hence the joke. The big city crime scene is not a joke anywhere in the world.

Australia is a unique country, in a sense second only to USA. USA has a lot more mixture of different races. But Australia is something, which never sought independence from the colonial powers, because by the time the British empire was done with the continent, the aboriginals were extinct and the survivors were the one who had come to serve the British interests. So, no nativity and no going back to the past and not much history recorded of the pre-colonial era. Only to look towards the future, which is not a bad state to be in, all things considering. No wonder, it has been the land of opportunities for European, Asians, chinese, afrikans and Polynesians alike in the 20th century. It thrives in its solitary splendor in the southern hemisphere with jewel like cities dotting its coast line. The Chinese might have been the neighbors of long forgotten aboriginal races of the continent, as the continent is a snug fit into the south china sea. When the continents were a single land mass, of course.

Today is the 76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar, so to celebrate, here is this new age song penned by him. A poet is a champion who plays with words, and Javed Akhtar is a champion of champions in this regard.


Song-Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain (Dil Chaahta Hai)(2001) Singers-Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Lyrics

Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun wo kisi pe marte hain
jaane kyun log pyar karte hain
jaane kyun wo kisi pe marte hain
jaane kyun u u
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyaar mein
sochiye to bas gham hain
pyar mein
jo sitam bhi hon kam hain
pyaar mein
sar jhukaana padtaa hai
dard mein
muskuraana padtaa hai
zehar kyun zindagi mein bharte hain
jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun uun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyar bin jeene mein
rakkhaa kya hai
pyaar jis ko nahin wo
tanhaa hai
pyaar bin jeene mein
rakkhaa kya hai
pyaar jis ko nahin wo
tanhaa hai
pyar sau rang le ke aata hai
pyar hi zindagi sajaata hai
log chhup chhup ke pyaar karte hain
jaane kyun saaf kehte darte hain
jaane kyun oon
jaane kyun
o jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

pyaar bekaar ki museebat hai
pyaar har tarah khoobsoorat hai
ho pyar se ham dur hi achchhe
arre pyaar ke sab roop hain sachche
ho ooo
pyar ke ghaat jo utarte hain
doobte hain na wo ubharte hain
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
pyaar to khair sabhi karte hain
jaane kyun aap hi mukarte hain
jaane kyun
jaane kyun

jaane kyun
jaane kyun
jaane kyun
