Hullo Atuldom

“Pyaar Hi Pyaar” – release date 17th October 1969- was directed by Bhappie Sonie and produced by Rajaram & Satish Wagle. It had music by Shankar-Jaikishan & Hasrat Jaipuri wrote most of the songs. Rajinder Krishan is credited with one song. The movie had a cast of Vyjayanthimala, Dharmendra, Manmohan, Mehmood, Helen, Dhumal, Madan Puri, D.K. Sapru, Sulochana -Latkar & Chatterjee, Raj Mehra AND PRAN. Plus there were some character artists who are familiar faces to all Hindi movie fans- like the rotund Moolchand, Robert (the Goan dancer who was a prominent face in dance numbers till 1989), even Shatrughan Sinha and Salim Khan (who later formed a duo with Javed Akhtar) were there in small roles.

It was a normal story where a police inspector on duty of finding a beautiful young woman’s father promptly falls in love with her. Then there are the regular complications that any Indian film with love story as theme would have. Vijay (Dharmendra) and Kavita (Vyjayanthimala) face complications in the form of Shyam Kumar (Manmohan) and Satish Raj (Pran, calling himself Ashok occasionally). So that is the background for the film
The film had six songs of which the blog has these four.

Song Date of post Remarks
Ham aa gaye phir dar kaahe ka 3 January 2009
Dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyaar hi pyaar 3 january 2009 (two songs from the same film! one after the other!)
Main kahin kavi na ban jaaun 5 January 2009
Tu mera main teri duniya jaley to jaley 12 September 2020 (post by Nahmji)

As we can see this film has debuted on the blog and is one of those films that are yet to be Yyippeeeed.

We are having the next song today on the occasion of Dharmendra’s birthday. He is turning 87 today. I know that there are enough fans of this smart (who was young at the time of this movie) old man among the followers of this blog. He still looks charming as was seen when he appeared on a satellite channel a few weeks back. We all know that he has been entertaining us since 1960. His last release was in 2020 in a Punjabi film “Jora -second chapter” and he was also seen in short film “Dream Catcher” in 2021. His sons and daughters (from his marriage to Hema Malini) are actors and his grandson Karan Deol (Sunny Deol’s son) has taken his first step into the filmworld a few years back.

Just to get an idea of the acting range of Dharam Paaji (he is addressed like this fondly) – “Yakeen”, “Satyakam”, “Pyaar Hi Pyaar”, “Khamoshi”, “Aaya Sawan Jhoom Ke” and “Aadmi Aur Insaan” were his releases of 1969.

The song is regular ched-chaad song. It has the hero complaining to the heroine and her friends and hindering them in their efforts to help the drowning Manmohan. It is the song that was written by Rajinder Krishan and sung with full gusto by Mohd Rafi .

Hullo Atuldom

Films with “Ek” in their title that are present on the blog:- 66 and in that list I found some titles have been repeated too like “Ek Gaon Ki Kahaani”; “Ek Hi Rasta” (3 times); amazing.

“Ek Se Badkar Ek” (1976) is one of the 66 on the blog. It was a movie produced & directed by Brij. It had Kalyanji-Anandji for music directors of songs written by Verma Malik. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi., Lata Mangeshkar and Runa Laila (from Bangladesh) were the playback singers used. The multi-starrer had Ashok Kumar, Raj Kumar, Sharmila Tagore, Navin Nischol, Anwar Hussain, Padma Khanna, Helen, David, Deven Verma, Purnima, Shetty etc in the cast.
Today I found a trivia about how Deven Verma was present in many movies made by Brij- Brij was the director of Deven Verma’s first production “Yakeen” and that association continued in films like “Chori Mera Kaam”, “Bombay 405 Miles” etc.

Most of the films made by Brij had Ashok Kumar and Anwar Hussain, with Ashok Kumar in all kinds of hair-do and Anwar Hussain being the Cigar-smoking White-suited gang=leader always after precious stones, and moorti (idols). All the heroes in Brij’s films were incidental and heroines eye-candy. There will be at least one song where the hero will be in disguise. Then there will be a song filmed on Ashok Kumar which will be mostly sung by Kishore Kumar. Let me make it clear here, that I am speaking of films made in the 1970s/80s and not the ones before that, I have not seen many of them. All-in-all, films made by Brij were entertainers.

We shall have a song from “Ek Se Badkar Ek” today where we have the romantic lead dancing a Bhangra, possibly at a youth festival. It is obvious that Navin Nischol is not comfortable dancing, and Sharmila Tagore is too slim in front of him. This song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. This is the third song from the film to appear on the blog. I am sure many of the followers of this blog will recall today’s song which used to be played regularly on the radio.

With this we will be Wishing the pretty lady -Sharmila Tagore- on her birthday. She is one actress who proved that she was much sought after actress, who could be cast in any type of role, even after marriage and motherhood. She is the ideal inspiration and support for her actress daughter and daughter-in-law.

Today’s song is from the film Rasilee-1946.

In India, the Talkie film was born in 1931. Next 19 years were the Film Industry’s Teen years when it was shedding its limitations, trying new ways, learning the right things, expanding rapidly, making films considering the likes of the audience and achieving a status of a lovable, attractive and one of the most wanted industries to work for. The film industry entered its Adulthood in the early 50’s when the ” Golden Age of Music” enchanted the people of the world.

Every and each year from the 1931 to 1950, the Hindi films had some major events, some experiments, some innovations and some Milestones. 1946 was an year which too had its share in the process of Evolution. By 1946 to 1950 old towers shook hard to crumble. The studio system almost disappeared. Film industry could now boast of people highly educated, talented and hard working. Even artistes with International experience and success like Dewan Sharar, Shakuntala Paranjpye, actor Ranjan, Balraj Sahni etc contributed to Indian films. The old horse of Calcutta-New Theatres broke down and actors, directors and Music specialists from Bengal made a Bee-Line to Bombay, thus making it the strongest ever film centre.

1946 was also an year of consolidation, in a sense that due to the imminent Partition of India on the basis of Religion, agreed upon by Gandhi-Nehru combine, made Muslim artistes and film makers plan to pack their bags and move over to the new Utopia across the border. Their vacancies were to be filled up by the waiting second line of actors, directors and MDs. The film industry was to have a complete new look within 1-2 years and the beginning was from 1946. Thus the year was very important.

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The IInd 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 to 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 the 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 the Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946. The year of Rasili-1946, was indeed a remarkable year when many artistes made their debuts in Hindi films in different fields – acting, Direction, singing or composing music etc.
Just look at this list…

Nirupa Roy, Geeta Roy, Geeta Bali, K A Abbas, Ravi Shankar, Balraj and Damayanti Sahni, Meena Kapoor, P L Santoshi (as a Director), Dev Anand, Rehana, Rehman, Kamla Kotnis, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chetan and Uma Anand, Kamini Kaushal, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Meena Kumari (adult roles), Indivar, Tasneem, Baby Tabassum, actress Shashi, Nigar Sultana, Kukku(as Heroine), Kishore Kumar (as actor in Shikari), Sudhir Phadke, Ram Ganguly, S D Burman, Nissar Bazmi, Mohd. Shafi, Hansraj Behl, Chitragupta Shrivastav, Snehal Bhatkar and Vinod.

Film Rasilee-1946 was made by Jai Bharat Pictures. This social film was directed by Hanuman Prasad, who also gave music to this film. He even wrote 2 songs for this film. He had also acted in the film Aansuon ki Duniya-1936. He gave music to 19 films composing 135 songs and wrote 19 songs in 6 films. This was the only film he ever directed.

The cast of the film was Susheel Kumar, Radha Rani, Kanhaiya lal, Ramesh Gupta, Anant Prabhu etc etc. The Lyricist was Gafil Harnalvi. The singers were Shamshad Begum, Kalyani, Mukesh, Narayan Datt, Rafi and Geeta Roy. Actress Radha Rani was one of the “Same Name Confusion” pair, in which she was the Bambai wali Radha Rani- about whom I have written earlier.

The other interesting cast member was Kanhaiyalal, whose career was like ” Jate the Japan pahunch gaye Cheen”. He joined the industry to become a Lyricist, but became an Actor. As an actor also he created a lasting impression.

Pandit Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi was born on 15-12-1910 in Banares. His father was Bhairodutt and mother was Parvati Devi. He studied only upto 4th std. When he was 15 year old he was given the family Kirana shop to manage, but due to his hobby of seeing dramas, the shop had to be closed. Then he was tried on a Chakki. Here also he failed. Seeing his inclination, his father started his own Drama company called ‘ Sanatan Dharm Natak Samaj’. Kanhaiya started doing odd jobs in that company.

After father’s death, his elder brother Sankata Prasad went to Bombay and joined Sagar Film co. Kanhaiya also went to Bombay . There he wrote a drama ” 15 August ke baad” and wanted to stage it, but it was censored too much and he failed in this too.

He left for Calcutta and joined the drama company of Agha Hashr. He got a good role of ‘Tabalchi’ in it. But he left this too and went to Allahabad joining a Ramleela group where he presented one drama also. Once Chimanlal Desai of Sagar had come there. He saw Kanhaiya and called him to Bombay. He only wanted to write songs, stories and dialogues, but fate made him an actor only.

He first did an extra role in the film ” Sagar ka Sher”. He was noticed by Motilal and he took him to Mehboob. He was given a role in the film “Gramophone Singer-38″. His next big role was in the film ‘ Sadhana”-39, it was followed by Bhole Bhale-39, Ek hi Raasta-39 and Service limited-39.

In 1940, his life’s most important role of ‘Sukhilala’ was done by him in the film Aurat-1940. After 17 years, Mehboob chose only him to do the same role in the remake “Mother India-1957”.

Kanhaiyalal was known to be a “Scene Eater” by other stars. Even Dilip Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajesh khanna, Ashok kumar etc appreciated his dialogue delivery and acting. In his private life, Kanhaiayalal was very down to earth. Though he could easily afford it, he never bought a car and always travelled in Bus, Train or a Taxi.

He worked in 141 films and surprisingly 7 songs were picturised on him,on screen.Besides acting, Kanhaiyalal wrote dialogues, stories and songs in films. He wrote 57 songs in 8 films namely, Sadhana-39, Comrades-39, Bhole Bhale-39, Sanskar-40, Civil Marriage-40, Radhika-41, Nirdosh-41 and Kasauti-41.

His dedication for work was always appreciated. During the shooting of the film Aurat-40, the set fell on him and he was injured, but he told Mehboob,-‘ Don’t stop the shooting. Take the shots.’ After the shooting, he was given treatment.

Some of his films were Behen, Radhika, Lal haveli, Ganga jamuna, Sautela bhai, Grihasthi, Upkar, Ram aur Shyam, Teen bahuraniyan, Jeevan mrityu, Hum panch etc etc.
He gave his last film shot for film Hathkadi-82.
Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi died on 14-8-1982, when he was 72 years old. He died in Delhi, leaving behind his wife, two sons and four daughters, and hardly any property. Even the body of the celebrated artiste could not be brought to Bombay, his home.

(information drawn from Sagar Movietone by Biren Kothari, Beete kal ke sitare by Shriram Tamrakar, wiki, HFGK,muVyz and my notes, all with thanks.)

Let us now listen to this good song by Shamshad Begum, from the film Rasilee-1946.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Samaadhi-1972)
—————————————

Welcome all to this second post of mine on ‘background songs’ in Hindi movies.

Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Samaadhi’.

“Samaadhi-1972” was directed by Prakash Mehra for ‘Sangam Arts International’. It was produced by Bhagwant Singh and G.L. Khanna.

It had Asha Parekh, Dharmendra, Jaya Bhaduri (special appearance), Madan Puri, Abhi Bhattacharya, Raj Mehra, Sundar, Randhir, Ram Mohan, Shetty, Leela Mishra, Tun Tun, B.B. Bhalla, Bhushan Tiwari, C.S. Dubey, Sadhana Khote, Keshav Rana, Dulari, R.P. Sethi, Sadhu Singh, Master Satyajeet, Master Raju, Master Rajeev, and others.

Story, screenplay and dialgoues of this movie were written by Pandit Mukhram Sharma.
Editing of this movie was done by Lachhmandas.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.12.1972.

Majrooh Sultanpuri was the lyricist for this film and had written all the six songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs in this movie and their status on the blog.

Sr.no Song Title Singer/s Posted on
01 Kaanta laga haay laga Lata Mangeshkar 10.12.2008
02 Jab tak rahe tan mein jiya Asha Bhonsle 13.10.2008
03 Ye khel hain taqdeer ke Manna Dey
04 Jaane jaana jaao kal phir aana Kishore Kumar
05 Maine dekha ek sapnaa Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar 24.05.2014
06 O yaara yaara Asha Bhonsle

From the above table we can see that only three songs from this movie have so far been posted on the blog. The movie had its first song posted on the blog on 13.10.2008. So, it is long time now that this movie has still not been Yippeeee’ed on the blog.

(The sixth song mentioned in the above list is said to be deleted from the movie after its release. Only the audio of this song is available now.)

(None of the songs from this movie make it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ of ‘1972’. Though, ‘kaanta laga’ appears in the list of next rung of 23 songs at number 19.)

As mentioned above today’s song is a background song which is sung by Manna Dey. He has also sung many of this type of songs and in fact the next three-four posts under this series could all have songs sung by Manna Dey only. He was another perfect choice for such type of songs.

Today’s song is played in four parts in the movie as the movie progresses. The central character in today’s song is Lakhan the dacoit in this movie who is played by Dharmendra on screen. I watched this movie online last Sunday and I must say that this movie is one of the very nice movies of those years.

Lakhan Singh is a dacoit and usually he and his gang of dacoits is raiding various villages to loot the money and jewelry from the villagers. During one such raid he kidnaps Champa (Asha Parekh) and tries to molest her, but when she tries to fight back he falls in love with her. Champa is an orphan living with her Uncle and Aunt who are happy after her kidnapping. Lakhan took backs Champa to her home where Champa sees her Uncle and Aunt celebrating. She decides to live with Lakhan and both of them get married in a temple. Lakhan Singh leaves the ‘dacoit gang’, and the ‘boore kaams’, to live a happy life of a good citizen. However, Champa is diagnosed with Cancer. Her treatment could not be done in absence of money. Devastated by Champa’s death Lakhan returns back to his ‘dacoit avtaar’ and wants to take revenge of the ‘money lender’ who refuses him to give money for Champa’s treatment. However the money lender’s (Randhir) wife begs for his life and Lakhan forgives him. But the money lender informs Police about Lakhan.

Police comes to the village to arrest Lakhan but he escapes away with his child on his back. He returns back to his ‘dacoit companions’ who happily welcome him and his son back.

From here there are lot of twists and turns in this movie and the today’s song is played which comments on the destiny of Lakhan, and the helplessness and the ‘deeds’ of Lakhan Singh himself.

The first part of this song gets played when Lakhan Singh runs away from the police and returns to his ‘camp’.

The second part of the song is played when Lakhan Singh handovers his own son to Abhi Bhattacharya whose son accidentally gets killed falling from hill when Lakhan Singh kidnaps him for a ransom. Lakhan Singh gives his son to Seth Manoharlal (Abhi Bhattacharya) telling him that he is the one whom he kidnapped eight years back.

Eight years back Lakhan Singh kidnaps Seth Manoharlal’s son for money and hide in a temple atop a hill (in Rajasthan). When Seth Manoharlal reaches the temple with the money Lakhan Singh is coming down carrying the child and his legs stumble upon a stone on the slope and the child falls down from his hands and dies. Lakhan is shocked but keep hiding until Seth Manoharlal returns back after lot of pain and wiping for his son. (This scene is a very long scene in the movie and it captures the emotions of both very well. I like it very much).

Manoharlal raises Lakhan Singh’s son thinking of his own son who after growing up is played by Dharmendra again.
The third part of the song is played when his own son Ajay (grown up now-Dharmendra in double role) slaps Lakhan Singh for stealing the gun from his house.
The gun was actually taken by Seth Manoharlal’s nephew who wants to harm his own father (played by actor Sundar). Grief stricken Lakhan Singh leaves Seth Manoharlal’s house and this part gets played in the background.
By this time Seth Manoharlal gets to know that Ajay is in fact the son of Lakhan Singh only.

The fourth part of this song takes place in the end of the movie when Lakhan Singh sacrifices his life saving Seth Manoharlal and his family members at Ajay’s marriage function.

Jaggu (played by Madan Puri) who is Lakhan Singh’s accomplice tries to blackmail him for his sons reality and finally tries to loot them on the marriage function where the fights takes place and in the end Lakhan Singh saves all but lost his life saving Seth Manoharlal. Jaggu gets killed by Ajay.

(That is the background for the four parts of this background song. The part mentioned as part 2 is actually part-3 and I have numbered the part as they appear in the movie chronologically) 🙂

Enjoy this wonderful song sung by Manna Dey and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Musical magic is by Pancham.

Hullo Atuldom

Two Indian actors were born in 1938 one in Calcutta and another in Surat. Both had their first movies around 1960/61. But their first film together happened sometime in 1977/78. “Mukti” (1977) was perhaps the first time they acted together. I am speaking of Shashi Kapoor (18th March 1938) & Sanjeev Kumar (9th July 1938), post which they were seen in 9/10 movies, the last of which released in 1989. I discovered this movie just before I began writing this post. The print that is available online is not very good but it gives a fair idea of the film.

“Oonch Neech Beech” was a movie produced by Jagdish Varma and directed by Wasi Khan (never heard of these names). Music direction was by Laxmikant Pyarelal and Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza, Anjaan & Aziz Qaisi (another new name) were the lyricists. Nitin Mukesh, Kamlesh Awasthi, Suresh Wadkar, Mahendra Kapoor were the playback singers. Raageshwari (according to various online sites, the titles card of the movie was not very helpful) was the only female singer used.
I have already mentioned that Shashi Kapoor & Sanjeev Kumar were in the cast. Additionally there were two power house performers- Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil. Then there were Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Nilu Phule, Sudhir, N.A. Ansari, Krishan Dhawan & Jagdish Raj playing important roles. The look that the cast sported in the movie was not like the way audiences were used to seeing them, specially the male in the cast. Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil carried looks that looked like extension of their realistic (meaning Art) films. The whole ambience of the film gave me a feeling that it was a long-in-the-making film. Readers may recall that Sanjeev Kumar had died in 1985 and Smita Patil in 1986. Possible that this may have been completed much before Sanjeev Kumar and Smita Patil died because the artists seem to have dubbed for themselves.

As for the storyline- Tulsi (Shabana Azmi) is a married woman who is deserted by her husband (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) at a railway station. Motilal (Shashi Kapoor) is the station master there and Hariram (Sanjeev Kumar) the coolie. These two try to help out Tulsi in her predicament, before Sumati (Smita Patil) enters the scene as Motilal’s wife. There is the usual misunderstanding between husband and wife as regards the relation that is between Tulsi and Motilal.
Here I would like to say that I am yet to see the full movie. I stopped seeing when I reached the song that we are having today. It is a multi-version song and I stopped seeing after the first version. Shashi Kapoor starts the song in Kamlesh Awasthi’s voice and Suresh Wadkar is playback for Sanjeev Kumar
Thinking of the cute actor of the Kapoor Khaandan today on his 5th anniversary. Shashi Kapoor passed away this date in 2017 (3 months before turning 80). He son Kunal Kapoor who had acted in afew films is essentially an Ad filmamker and daughter Sanjana who also featured in a some movies of the late 80s is now a theatre personality. Shashi Kapoor’s youngest son Karan Kapoor who began his journey as model for Bombay Dyeing etc is now into photography and settled in the UK.

P.S After writing the above post I finished seeing the movie. I found that the print that is available online has only one version of the song. Also the audio version on youtube is longer.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Remembrance Day – Shashi Kapoor)
—————————————

Today we pay our tributes to yesteryears’ actor Shashi Kapoor. He passed away on this day 4th December in 2017. He was born on 18th March’1938.

On this occasion I am presenting a song from the 1978 movie ‘Aahuti’.

Shashi Kapoor was a regular feature in many of the movies in the seventies and many multi-starrer movies especially. Today’s movie is one such movie which I had watched in my childhood and being a story of three brothers it touched me and since then is there in my memory. Though, I do not remember the whole movie now except for its songs.

‘Aahuti’ was directed by Ashok Bhushan for ‘Basho Productions, Bombay’.

It had Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev, Kamini Kaushal, Ajit, Madan Puri, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Raj Mehra, Kuljeet, Dulari, Birbal, Rajan Kapoor, Ranjana Sachdev, Preeti Ganguly, Ranbeer Raj, Pal Sharma, Darshan Arora, Dharmveer, Master Romi, Master Rajesh, Master Ravi and others.

Pradeep Kumar makes a ‘special appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.04.1978.

This movie had six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Following is the list of songs in this movie;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Is duniya mein kaun sanwaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-1) Mahendra Kapoor, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
02 Is duniya mein kaun sanwaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-2) Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Manhar, chorus
03 Kaash aisaa hota Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 04.08.2016
04 Saathi mere saathi rut aati jaati Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 22.07.2018
05 Naukri sau ki hazaar ki Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
06 Jugni ik ladki ka naam Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 04.04.2021

So far three songs from the above have been earlier posted on the blog.

I had mentioned in my previous post with a song of this movie that the two songs from this movie which brings back memories for me are ‘Is duniya mein kaun sanwaare sab ke bigde kaam’ and the second one is the today’s song ‘Naukri sau ki hazaar ki’. This song is lying since long now and today we are going to listen and watch it ‘remembering Shashi Kapoor’ and also Parveen Babi both of whom appeared in many movies of the ‘seventies’.

Let us now listen to today’s beautiful song which is sung by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal. The song is lip-synced by Shashi Kapoor and Parveen Babi respectively.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Remembering Dev Anand)
—————————————

Today 3rd December’2022 is the eleventh ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ (born on 26th September 1923 – passed away on 3rd December 2011) of the legendary actor Dev Anand.

My father was a big big fan of Dev Anand (BTW I am also a Dev Saab’s fan too) and may be because of that I got to watch many of his movies in my childhood which I remember vaguely. In my childhood we were staying in colony of State Electricity Board and there used to be a weekly screening of Hindi movies which mostly were the older and older movies. Because getting newly released movies were a ‘costly affair’ for the ‘colony club committee’. In this weekly screening I get to watch many of Dev Anand’s black and white movies e.g. ‘Sarhad’, ‘Sharaabi’, ‘Bambai Ka Babu’, etc. and some older movies of sixties and early seventies too. This was the period from 1975 onward and 1977-to-1983 for me, if I remember correctly. Since watching movies and listening songs on radio was common for all in our family I get those songs imbibed on my mind also develop a liking for HFM of golden period e.g. the song ‘hai apnaa dil to aawaraa’ and many other songs. Why I am mentioning only this song is because it was the most favourites of my father and he used to play it on ‘mouth organ’ frequently and in the colony cultural programmes held during festivals.

Well there is long list of Dev Anand’s movies and songs which are favourites of me and even my family today. Like the song ‘phoolon ke rang se’, ‘dil ka bhandwar kare pukaar’, ‘hai apnaa dil to aawaraa’ etc which my daughters too like very much and they are always there in their playlists.

I get to listen to many Dev-Kishore-RDB combination songs daily on FM channels on radio and it is always a great pleasure to listen to them.

What I want to bring to the notice of the readers is that Dev Anand’s magic spell is still upon us and it will be there as long as Hindi movies and HFM will be there. It is not only the people of older generations of my generation who are the ‘fans’ of Dev Anand but even the newer generations and music lovers have fallen in love of him and his songs.

On the occasion of Dev Anand’s ‘remembrance day’ today I am presenting a lesser heard song from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Prem Shastra’. I vaguely remember that in the early eighties this movie was scheduled to be screened in our ‘colony’ but it was cancelled later.

“Prem Shastra-1974” was directed by B.R. Ishara for ‘Nalanda Arts, Bombay.

It was produced by Amar Jeet.

It had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Bindu, I.S. Johar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sajjan, Anwar Hussain, Murad, Asit Sen, David, Mumtaz Begam, Dulari, Manhar Desai, Mohan Sheri, Lajwanti Sharma, Amrut Patel, Mishrilal and others.

Rehman and Anju Mahendru had a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B.R. Ishara who also directed this movie.
Editing of this movie was done by I.M. Kunnu.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.07.1974 with ‘restricted viewing’ certificate. (However in the later years the ‘restricted viewing’ condition was removed for this movie.).

“Prem Shaastra” had seven soundtracks released with five songs, one theme music track, and one title music soundtrack.

All the songs for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music for them was composed by Lamikant-Pyarelal.

Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle are the only two voices who have sung the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is Dev Anand lip-syncing the song in his ‘characteristic style’. Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Bindu and many others.

I had been longing to introduce this movie on the blog since long and earlier I had planned to present a duet song from this movie. But finally I decided on the today’s song which is a nice song and if we listen to it few times it grows on us.

I had mentioned in my earlier write-ups that I liked such ‘drink driven’ 🙂 songs very much and when you have Kishore Kumar and a Dev Anand combination you are surely going to love it. (Around a month back I had presented a song where the hero of the movie is sings ‘thhodi sharaab pi loon, ho jaaye kuchh sahaara, aye doston tumhe kya ye bhi nahin ganwaara’, but today’s hero is different he publicly ‘announces’ that ‘main sharaab pi rahaa hoon’ 🙂 and warns nobody should ‘disturb’ him):)

Let us listen to today’s song now…

(Note – The audio version of this songs has one extra stanza (the first one) which is not there in the video version of this song.).

With today’s song ‘Prem Shaastra-1974’ makes its debut on the blog.

wo taraana aa main nahin
kis liye ae ae teri aankhen
kar rahi ee ee hain ishaare
ab na koyee pukaare
main sharaab pi rahaa hoon
main sharaab pi rahaa hoon

husn kya hai ik haseen
zindagi ki bhool hain
ishq mein hai kuchh nashaa
ye magar fazool hai
husn kya hai ik haseen
zindagi ki bhool hain
ishq mein hai kuchh nashaa
ye magar fazool hai
ye magar fazool hai
jisne bhi ee ki mohabbat
mar gayaa aa gham ke maare
ab na koyee pukaare
main sharaab pi rahaa hoon
main sharaab pi rahaa hoon
doston mere kissey
ho gaye ae khatm saare
ab na koyee pukaare
main sharaab pi rahaa hoon
main sharaab pi rahaa hoon

Hullo Atuldom

History of Indian cinema is incomplete without mentioning the influence of Parsi theatre, specially in the initial years of the film industry. When we throw a question to Google about “influence of Parsi theatre on Indian Film Industry” this reply pops up:- “Stylistic elements like declamatory theatrical performances, the progression of narrative through song & dance sequences, melodrama, disguise & plot reversals”. I am sure there are knowledgeable followers of Atuldom who will be able to throw more light on this subject. If I recall, our in-house encyclopaedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukh, has written about this in a few of his posts.

I think Sohrab Modi was one of the first Parsis in Indian Cinema and there have been many Parsi actors in later years too and I remember many of them in character roles- Dinyar Contractor, Dinyar Tirandaz and his wife Roshan, Daisy Irani, Maneka Irani, Honey Irani, etc. Nauheed Cyrusi, Perizad Zorabian of the current generation have played central characters. There are some mainstream actors who have a Parsi parent or grandparent. I am not going to list all of them here.

I will just say that the celebrity who celebrates his birthday on 2nd December is from Parsi Theatre. He began by playing Mohammad Ali Jinnah in “Gandhi” – a play which was followed by some more theatrical appearances and ads for ‘Krackjack’ (the biscuit), ‘Fanta’ (the cold drink), etc.

Of course he began his life at The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower as a waiter and room service personnel. He also helped his mother in running her bakery & Namkeen shop in South Mumbai. With the tips that he gathered at the Taj he saved up enough to buy a camera which he used to click photos of school cricket & football matches which he sold for 20 and 30 rupees.

We are reading about Boman Irani. He made his on-screen debut in 2000 with a blink-n-miss role in Mansoor Khan’s “Josh”. “Everybody Says I’m Fine!” (2001 release) was an Indian-English language film that was also actor Rahul Bose’s directorial debut and Boman Irani’s first screen presence of substance. Then we have had a deluge of memorable roles of this multi-talented versatile actor- Dr. J.C. Asthana (“Munna Bhai M.B.B.S” in 2003), Principal Viru Sahastrabuddhe a.k.a. VIRUS (“3 Idiots” in 2009), the forgetful college Principal of ‘Main Hoon Na’ (2004) etc etc. He has played Farokh Engineer in the 2021 release “83”. He has also acted in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Kannada films. A notable aspect of Boman Irani’s career is that he has never played any character that makes a caricature of any community.

Boman Irani has acted in a movie where he was romantically paired opposite Farha Khan (one of those in the industry with Parsi antecedent). It had a cast of Daisy Irani, Shammi, Mahabanoo Modi Kotwal, Nauheed Cyrusi, Dinyar Contractor, Kurush Deboo etc. The movie was “Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi” (release date 24 August 2012) which was directed by Bela Bhansali Sehgal and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. It had music by Chandrajeet Ganguly a.k.a Jeet Gannguli, Amitabh Bhattacharya and Faraz Ali were the lyricists for sings sung by K.K., Shreya Ghoshal, Usha Uthup, Mohit Chauhan and Neeraj Shridhar.

The song with this post is a romantic song where we see Farha Khan and Boman Irani romancing in typical Bollywood fashion.

Lyrics

rum da ra ra ra
pa rararara
rarararara
rum da ra ra ra
pa rararara
rarararara

hai dosti
kuchh zyaada zindagi se ho gayi
hai dosti
phir taaza zindagi se ho gayi
ye pyaar tera
khumaar sa hai
suhaane khwaab humne bhi bune ae
ishq mein tere bina
ishq mein tere bina
dil hi na lage
ishq mein tere bina
ishq mein tere bina
dil hi na lage

ahhahaha
tujhe milke samjhe
tujhse pahle kaisi
thi zindagi
thi zindagi
chehre se gulshan dil se sehra jaisi
thi zindagi ee
thi zindagi ee
ye pyaar tera
ye pyaar tera
bahaar sa hai
bahaar sa hai
to aaj phool humne bhi chune
ishq mein tere bina
ishq mein tere bina
dil hi na lage
ishq mein tere bina
ishq mein tere bina
dil hi na lage

meri har dhadkan pe toone khwaahish likh di
kya baat hai
kya baat hai
mere bikhre sur thhe
toone bandish likh di
kya baat hai
kya baat hai
ye pyaar tera
ye pyaar tera
malhaar sa hai
malhaar sa hai
taraane aaj humne bhi sune ae
ishq mein tere bina
ishq mein tere bina
dil hi na lage
ishq mein tere bina
ishq mein tere bina
dil hi na lage
hai dosti kuchh zyaada zindagi se ho gayi ee ee
hai dosti phir taaza zindagi se ho gayi
ye pyaar tera
ye pyaar tera
bahaar sa hai
bahaar sa hai
suhaane khwaab humne bhi bune
ishq me tere bina
haan tere bina
dil hi na lage
ishq mein tere bina
haan tere bina
dil hi na lage
ishq mein tere bina
haan tere bina
dil hi na lage
ishq mein tere bina
ha tere bina
dil hi na lage
