“Roomaal”(1949) was directed by Ramchandra Thakur for Varuna Films, Bombay. This “social”movie had Nargis, Rahman, Jeewan, Indu, Jairaj, Badri Prasad, Majnoo, Jillobai, Cuckkoo, Ramesh Thakur, Urwashi, Jankidas, Deepak, Pitu, Boy Ratan, Azim, Shamu, Mukesh, Sohanlal, Ahmad etc in it.

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

Here is the sixth song from “Roomaal”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Nazim Panipati is the lyricist. The movie had two music directors in it, viz Hansraj Bahl and Aziz Khan, but the distribution of songs among them is not known. There have been indirect ways to verify thouh that some songs were composed by Hansraj Bahl. Seeing that another Hansraj Bahl song (thus indirectly identified) had lyics by Nazim Panipati, my guess is that this song with lyrics by Nazm Panipati could be a Hansraj Bahl composition as well.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. I request our knowledeable readers to throw light on the picturiusation of this song.


Song-Wo ankhiyaan mila kar chale gaye (Roomaal)(1949) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Nazim Panipati, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

wo ankhiyaan milaa kar
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re

kyun dukhiyaa dil ko tod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
kyun dukhiyaa dil ko tod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
hamen kiske sahaare chhod gaye
wo aag lagaa kar
wo aag lagaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi aag mein jalti re
main rah gayi aag mein jalti re
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re

wo chale gaye
wo chale gaye aur wahin hoon main
hoon aise jaisi nahin hoon main
hoon aise jaisi nahin hoon main
wo chale gaye aur wahin hun main
hoon aise jaisi nahin hoon main
wo paas bulaa kar
wo paas bulaa kar chale gaye
kyaa ho gayi mose galti re
kyaa ho gayi mose galti re
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar
wo ankhiyaan milaa kar chale gaye
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re
main rah gayi ankhiyaan malti re

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ह’ – हमने भी प्यार किया, नज़रों को चार किया ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

॰ ॰ ॰दिल का सूना साज़ तराना ढूंढेगा
तीर ए निगाह ए नाज़ निशाना ढूंढेगा॰ ॰ ॰

It is your words that tell of this predicament. Seasons come and go, as they have, year on year on year. . .  but the one who this heart wants to listen to again, has not returned after going away. . .

– – – –

With today’s song, we come to the end of this series of duets of Rafi Sb. This series got initiated on Rafi Sb’s birth anniversary (24th Dec) in 2017.  Having gone through 33 episodes, we come to the closure with the Hindi alphabet letter ‘ह’. On the way, over the past almost 15 months, we have touched upon many a wonderful duet songs that simply perpetuate the legend of this divine voice. A blessing that we shared the same time and the planet with him for a certain period of time. The association, and its lasting awareness, has been such a lovely enchanting experience, that has left in the mind two opposing emotions – happiness and regret.  Happiness that we have a wonderful legacy treasure bequeathed to us by this voice. And regret that there could have been more, but alas not destined to be. God works in his own mysterious ways, and we are but mortals subject to his method and his directions.

So much has been said – about Rafi Sb, in this series, and by other contributors on this blog. And by many others, writing about him on various platforms and publications. Satish Shenoy ji, in a comment earlier today, has written – “Any number of posts on Rafisaab are welcome, even at the cost of repetition”.  Yes, eventually there is a limit to words, and to the expressions.  But even after reaching that limit, the heart feels that enough has not been said.  What more could be said, I don’t know.  But I know that “कल और आएंगे॰॰॰ हमसे बेहतर कहने वाले” – and more will be said and written about Rafi Sb, in ways that has not found an expression as yet.  Such is the magic of this wondrous voice, I believe.

Today’s song is from the 1962 film ‘Mall Road’.  The singing accompaniment is Asha Bhosle.  Words are from the pen of Prem Warburtani and the music is from the mind of Sudarshan.

For the record, the complete list of previous songs in this series is given below,

So much more seems to be still wound up inside that needs to be said.  And all that needs to be said, is probably already present in the words that Rafi Sb has sung in his life.  Just to say that he is incomparable, comes to mind the lines he has already uttered,

ना तुम सा कोई जमाने भर में
तुम्हीं को चाहा मेरी नज़र ने॰ ॰ ॰

Maybe some more needs to be said.  Maybe another series of Rafi Sb songs will come about.  Nahm ji has also restarted one of her pending series just last week.  Still a good number of his songs are waiting to be posted here – about a couple of thousands more to go. A lot of opportunity still – to write more about him.  So yes, maybe another series of his songs, who knows.For now, let us listen to this song today – and the words that will come to mind are

हो गया दिल पे मेरे तेरी आवाज़ का जादू”.

Aameen.

Blog Day : 3874 Post No. : 14894

The New Theatres Ltd.(NT) has given some outstanding and famous directors to the Hindi film industry who got fame on an all-India level. A couple of them got recognition in the international level also. I list below a few of them:

Debaki Bose was known for his films like ‘Chandidas’ (Bengali, 1932), ‘Puran Bhagat’ (1933), ‘Seeta’ (1934), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937). ‘Nartaki’ (1940) etc. Kidar Sharma called him the ‘Dronacharya of film making’. He was the first director who used background music. Probably, he was also the first Indian film director who was honoured with a Certificate of Merit for his direction of the film ‘Seeta’ (1933) at Cannes Film Festival.

Nitin Bose was known for the use of his magical camera angle in the films he directed. His camera angles spoke more than the dialogues. Some of the notable films he directed was ‘Chandidas’ (Hindi, 1934), ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935), ‘President’ (1937), ‘Dharti Mata’ (1938), ‘Milan’ (1946), ‘Deedar’ (1951), ‘Waaris’ (1954), ‘Ganga Jamuna’ (1961) etc. He was the first to experiment with playback singing in his film ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935). He got the idea when he saw Pankaj Mullick singing in tandem with a song which he was playing on his gramophone record player.

P C Barua, though not originally from NT, got name and fame when he joined NT and directed ‘Devdas’ (1935). He directed some other films like ‘Manzil’ (1936), ‘Mukti’ (1937), ‘Zindagi’ (1940), ‘Jawaab’ (1942), ‘Subah-Shaam’ (1944) etc. He was the first director who used ‘flash back’ technique in ‘Roop Lekha’ (1934).

Bimal Roy started his filmy career as Assistant to P C Barua in cinematography, editing and direction. He was the Cinematographer for films like ‘Devdas’ (1935), Mukti’ (1937), ‘Haar Jeet’ (1940), ‘Meenakshi’ (1942) etc. He got his first assignment as director in NT when he directed ‘Hamraahi’ (1945). Other well-known films which he directed include ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), ‘Devdas’ (1955), ‘Madhumati’ (1958), ‘Sujata’ (1959), “Bandini’ (1963). ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953)’ was critically acclaimed and won a prize at Cannes Film Festival. ‘Madhumati’ (1958) got a total of 9 ‘Filmfare’ awards.

Name of a well-known director from NT is missing from the above list. I have chosen him in this article for his detailed profile. And he is Phani Majumdar.

Phani Majumdar (28/12/1911-16/05/1994) was born in Faridkot in Bengal Presidency (now in Bangla Desh). After his graduation in 1930, Phani Majumdar worked as a typist in a company. His connection with films started when he joined as Stenographer to P C Barua in Barua Studio sometime in 1932. Later he became his Assistant Director in ‘Devdas’ (1935) and ‘Mukti’ (1937). He was a script-writer for ‘Abhagin’ (1938).

Phani Majumdar got his opportunity to debut as director in ‘Street Singer’ (1938) with K L Saigal and Kanan Devi in lead roles. This film is regarded as classical musical melodrama like ‘Devdas’ (1935). His debut film was highly successful at the box office. With this film, K L Saigal and Kanan Devi reached the pinnacle of their filmy career as actor-singer.

After successfully directing ‘Kapal Kundala’ (1939) for NT, Phani Majumdar shifted his base to Bombay (Mumbai) sometime in 1941. But working as a free-lance director was not a cakewalk for him especially at a time when there was scarcity of raw films, getting actors for the films who were mostly studio attached and the studio time for shooting. But due to his fame as a director of ‘Street Singer’ (1938) and also his friendly nature, he could overcome the initial obstacles.

Luck favoured Phani Majumdar. Chimanlal Trivedi had closed down his film production company, CIRCO Productions and had set up a new banner, Laxmi Productions. He engaged Phani Majumdar for directing his first film ‘Tamanna’ (1942) under the new banner. From the cast and crew of the film, it would appear that Phani Majumdar had a free hand in selecting them. Apart from actors for the film like Leela Desai, Jagdish Sethi, K C Dey who were earlier attached to NT, he had engaged 7 technicians from Bengal for the film. This was the first film in Mumbai for Leela Desai.

‘Filmindia’, in its review of ‘Tamanna’ (1942) while lauding the performances of Jairaj, Leela Desai, Jagdish Sethi and K C Dey, was critical of the direction by Phani Majumdar. However, some of the film producers seemed to have a different views. The result was that Phani Majumdar was flooded with new assignments as director for ‘Mohabbat’ (1943), ‘Rajkumar’ (1944) and ‘Meena’ (1944). Thereafter, he produced and directed ‘Devdasi’ (1945), Insaaf’ (1946) and ‘Door Chalen’ (1946). He also directed an off-beat film ‘Hum Bhi Insaan Hain’ (1948) starring Dev Anand and Ramola.

In the early 1950s, Phani Majumdar directed ‘Andolan’ (1951) which was virtually a documentary type film depicting the history of the Indian National Congress since its inception in 1885 until 1947 and India’s freedom struggle. Thereafter, he directed Bombay Talkies’ ‘Tamasha’ (1952) and ‘Baadbaan’ (1954), the latter being actually produced by the Bombay Talkies Workers Cooperatives. Both these films were critically acclaimed though they were not successful in terms of box office receipts. Shakti Samanta assisted Phani Majumdar in both these films in direction as also in dialogues/script writing.

During 1955-59, Phani Majumdar joined Shaws’ Malay Films Productions, Singapore. During this period, he directed 11 films in Malay, Chinese and English languages. He directed the first Eastman Colour film in Malay language, ‘Hang Tuah’ (1956). The film won awards in the Asian Film Festival held in Hong Kong in 1957 and was nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear in Berlin International Film Festival, 1957. The prominent Malaysian film maker, Jamir Sulong assisted Phani Majumdar in his 6 out of 8 films he directed in Singapore.

After returning to India in 1959, he directed successful films like ‘Aarti’ (1962), ‘Oonche Log’ (1965) and ‘Aakashdeep’ (1965). In all, he directed 26 feature films in Hindi during 1938-1989. He wrote the scripts for most of his films which he directed. In addition, he also directed a few Children’s films and films in other languages like Bengali, Punjabi, Magadhi, Maithili, Malay, Chinese, English etc. Towards the end of his filmy career, he directed a few TV serials in Kolkata.

Phani Majumdar left for heavenly abode on May 16, 1994 at the age of 83. He was married to actress Monica Desai, the younger sister of actress Leela Desai.

Phani Majumdar mostly directed films which were acclaimed as creator of social consciousness. One of such films he directed was ‘‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954). The film was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone. The star cast included Kishore Kumar and Usha Kiran in the lead role supported by Kanhaiyalal, Gautam, Krishnakant, Nazira Begum, Shivraj, Usha Rani, Master Jagdeep, Baby Asha Parekh etc

The gist of the story of the film based on the film’s review in January 24, 1954 issue of ‘Filmfare’ and the song book of the film is as under:

Ramu (childhood roe played by Jagdeep) is the son of a poor Dhobi, Mahadeo. Ramu is smart and intelligent. His elder sister, Lakshmi is very proud of her younger brother. Every evening, Lakshmi walks through the fields to pick him up from the school for back home.

One day, Lakshmi falls ill. Mahadeo has no money to bring doctor to the village. Having ranked top in his class in the school examination, Ramu has to attend to a prize distribution ceremony. But Lakshmi cannot accompany him as she is ill. After the prize distribution ceremony, Ramu returns home quickly to show his Didi the books he received as the prize. He finds that his Didi is dead. Choked with grief, he asks his father as to why Didi died. Mahadeo has no answer except that he was so poor that he could not afford to call a doctor. The broken-hearted Ramu vows that he would become a doctor and treat free the poor in the village.

Mahadeo works hard to earn more money for the fulfillment of Ramu’s dream. In the school, Ramu is taunted by some of his rich classmates for a dream of a poor Ramu of becoming a doctor but he is indifferent to the taunts. Ramu’s hard work and his father’s struggle bring fruits. He finishes his school with good performance and gets admitted to the medical college.

Ramu’s aptitude for medical studies attracts attention of the Vice- Principal, Professor Tripathi. He takes a greater interest in Ramu’s studies. Ramu becomes a doctor. Professor Tripathi helps him further in his practice by placing his laboratory at Ramu’s disposal. He also allows Ramu to study in his residence since his house in the village is far-off. Professor Tripathi has a young daughter, Uma (Usha Kiran) who plays pranks with Ramu. Gradually, Uma falls in love with Ramu. However, he is shy to reciprocate the love. Moreover, he is aware that he is the son of a poor Dhobi and Uma is the daughter of a rich father. There is struggle between his heart and realities of the situation. However, at the end, they unite after overcoming the stumbling block of the society.

‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954) had 7 songs of which one song has been covered in the Blog. Interestingly, out of the 7 songs as many as 6 songs are solo songs of Asha Bhonsle. The remaining one song is sung by Kishore Kumar. All the songs were written jointly by Ali Sardar Jafri and Majrooh Sutanpuri and were composed by Khayyam.

I am presenting one of the remaining six songs from the film which is a rare one. The song is ‘taaron se akhiyaan milaaun main’ sung by Asha Bhonsle. When I first heard this song, I was surprised to note that the composition as well as the orchestrations of the song sounded like that of O P Nayyar. The fact is that when Khayyam composed the music for this song, O P Nayyar had not established himself as the music director of repute to copy his style of music. He came into prominence only after a runaway success of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) and its songs. But the film ‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954) was released on January 19, 1954, about 4 months before the release of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954).

Enjoy this song of Khayyam in the style of O P Nayyar.

Note: The information on Phani Majumdar is mainly from indiancine.ma, ‘Filmindia’ magazines, ‘Film Pictorial’- April 1945 issue and inputs from newspapers.

kaajal roya wo na mila aa
baadal roya naina roye

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘स’ – सुन गोरी खोल ज़रा घूँघट का डोर ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

॰ ॰ ॰जिनके मिलन को तरसे
वो तो ना आए
मौसम आए जाये॰ ॰ ॰

It is your words that tell of this predicament. Seasons come and go, as they have, year on year on year. . .  but the one who this heart wants to listen to again, has not returned after going away. . .

– – – –

Rafi Sb has sung playback for a whole range of performers all the way from mid 1940s to early 1980s, and then some. He never declined to sing for any actor, be that a newcomer, a junior artist, or even non-entities who made just one song, one film appearances. On the other hand, the association of Rafi Sb’s voice with some very important and specific performers, has been well discussed and documented. Almost invariably, Rafi Sb was the singing voice for these artists, no matter what.

One name that is very familiar in this context is Johnny Walker. Starting his career as a small time comedian, Johnny Walker went on to command such importance in the film world that his role, and invariably a song lip-synched by him, was part of a formula in the world of Hindi cinema. Pick any Johnny Walker film in 1950s and 1960s – you can be sure there is also a song performed by him, with playback from Rafi Sb. Rafi Sb was able to create that unique and peculiar rendition for Johnny Walker songs, that blended so seamlessly with actor’s dialogue delivery and acting styles. That is the depth of the singing prowess of Rafi Sb. And it applies across all actors. He sang for them, in their own styles, almost completely making himself invisible inside that actor.

Today’s song in this series is a typical Johnny Walker song. The film is ‘Phool Baney Angaarey’ from 1963. The film is produced under the banner of Asiatic Arts Production, and is directed by Suraj Prakash. This is a social drama that weaves a story of a joint family during the period of India’s 1962 war with China. The star cast includes Mala Sinha, Raj Kumar, Johnny Walker, Ashish Kumar, Shammi, Mumtaz Begum, Mukri, Nasreen, Tuntun, Sarita Devi, Lakshmi, Leela Mishra, Chaman Puri, Ravikant, Mansaram, and Bhalla amongst others.

Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film. All songs are written by Anand Bakshi, and the music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. Two songs of this film are already showcased here.

In this duet, Rafi Sb is accompanied by Kamal Barot. On screen, the song is performed by Johnny Walker and Shammi. The scenario is the first night of a newlywed couple. The groom is making efforts and requesting the bride to open her ghunghat and allow him to see her face. The exchange is comical, of course, given that Johnny Walker is the groom. He even mentions that yes, they have met before also, but that he just wants to confirm that he got married to the same person.

Enjoy this fun song, the penultimate in this series. Concluding episode should be coming shortly. 🙂

Song – Sun Gori Khol Zara Ghunghat Ka Door  (Phool Baney Angaarey) (1963) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Kamal Barot, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Missing Films of 1960s – 91
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yet another obscure and unfamiliar film from 1970.  The film is ‘Khooni Saaya’. Just as the name suggests, this is a stunt film – I am sure an effort to make a chilling crime thriller. What became of it, we have no idea.

The film is produced under the banner of Jayant Films, Bombay and is directed by A Zahoor. The star cast is quiet a mix of unknown, unfamiliar names, with just a few familiar names. The list reads as Hercules, Rozeena, Ratan, Azad, BM Vyas, Habeeb, Dhanraj, Tara, Yusuf, Sabir, Babejani, Qamarjani, Master Zuber, Master Latif, Fazal Khan, Khurshid Khan, Julian, Musachina, Master Roshan, Fazlu, Ramzan, Manju, Aruna, Indira Bansal, and Sheikh.

The Geet Kosh lists 4 songs for this film. The music director is identified as Kamal Kant – an unfamiliar name. However, when I check out blog lists, one song of this music director is already present here. That song is from a film from 1983. As I check the Geet Kosh, I can locate 4 films with music by Kamal Kant, between the years 1970 and 1980. Besides this film, the other films are all mythological. Then the 1983 film ‘Kaun Hai Wo’ seems to be another cops and robber story.

The lyricist’s name is equally unfamiliar – Azeez Jamaali. Geet Kosh shows his name in one film from 1955, and then just this film in 1970. His name appears in our blog for the first time today.

The four songs listed have been released on 2 gramophone records. As I check for the availability, I find that just one record, i.e. two songs, have so far surfaced in the public domain. Checking with other collectors, I am drawing a blanks as far as the remaining two songs are concerned.

The singing voice is that of Krishna Kalle. Krishna Kalle has recorded close to 200 songs in Hindi films (which include songs for unreleased films also, as per Geet Kosh). Her singing career in films starts in the mid sixties, and carries on till the early eighties. In 1970, she was quite at the peak of her singing career.

The song presented is a love song, with the lady expressing her feelings for her beau – that her eyes are where he lives.

Rehte Ho Meri Aankhon Mein. . .

Song – Rehte Ho Meri Aankhon Mein  (Khooni Saaya) (1970) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Azeez Jamaali, MD – Kamal Kant

Lyrics

rehte ho meri aankhon mein
palkon ki thandi chhaon mein
jeevan ka mere sahara
saajan hai pyar tumhaara
rehte ho meri aankhon mein

tum mere main hoon tumhaari
jaane ye duniya saari
tum mere main hoon tumhaari
jaane ye duniya saari
mehki hawaayen
behki fizaayen
geet milan ke gaayen
rehte ho meri aankhon mein
palkon ki thandi chhaon mein
jeevan ka mere sahara
saajan hai pyar tumhaara
rehte ho meri aankhon mein

dekho ji aise na dekho
nazron ko tum apni roko
dekho ji aise na dekho
nazron ko tum apni roko
uff ye nigaahen
dil mein samaayen
preet ki jyot jalaayen
rehte ho meri aankhon mein
palkon ki thandi chhaon mein
jeevan ka mere sahara
saajan hai pyar tumhaara
rehte ho meri aankhon mein

aaa aaaa
aaaa aaaaaa
aaaaa aaaaaaa

रहते हो मेरी आँखों में
पलकों की ठंडी छाँव में
जीवन का मेरे सहारा
साजन है प्यार तुम्हारा
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में

तुम मेरे मैं हूँ तुम्हारी
जाने ये दुनिया सारी
तुम मेरे मैं हूँ तुम्हारी
जाने ये दुनिया सारी
महकी हवाएँ
बहकी फिज़ाएँ
गीत मिलन के गायें
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में
पलकों की ठंडी छाँव में
जीवन का मेरे सहारा
साजन है प्यार तुम्हारा
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में

देखो जी ऐसे ना देखो
नज़रों को तुम अपनी रोको
देखो जी ऐसे ना देखो
नज़रों को तुम अपनी रोको
उफ़्फ़ ये निगाहें
दिल में समाएँ
प्रीत की ज्योत जगाएँ
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में
पलकों की ठंडी छाँव में
जीवन का मेरे सहारा
साजन है प्यार तुम्हारा
रहते हो मेरी आँखों में

आss आsss
आsss आsssss

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 76# Memories of the Seventies – Composer Rajesh Roshan #
————————————————————————————————–———————-

Welcome all and wishing all a very Happy New Year 2019!!!

May this New Year bring us all peace, prosperity, good health, and growth of our country in all areas which are concerned with the ‘common man’ and which helps to improve the ‘quality of life’ and ‘quality of living’ for the people of this country.

Within few months general elections for the parliament will also be held and people will get a chance to vote for their ‘fate’ and ‘fate’ of the country.

Let ‘positivity’ prevails and let the ‘truth’ triumphs over ‘misleading negativity’ and ‘social evils’ that are still a ‘threat’ for the ‘unity’ and ‘overall development’ of this country.

***

On the beginning of every year I always think that I should share a song which has celebration, a message in it and it should be motivational and/or inspirational too. And the better if it is a group song or having ‘chorus singing’ in it, to give it a sense of ‘collective spirit’ and ‘team spirit’ 🙂

I think the song I am presenting today serves this purpose I am looking for and it also motivates for ‘hard work’ (mehnat) to fulfil the dreams of individual and for the betterment of the society overall.

And the other reason for this article once again is ‘nostalgia’ and ‘songs that brings back memories’ …

It was not suddenly that the song came to my mind. It so happened that one day while I was travelling from my Camp place to work place and just give a look at the Sun which was shining brightly in the morning.

(Normally when I do that, giving a look at the Sun or staring it a while, the first thing coming to my mind is Kapil Dev 🙂 )

But that day when I try to stare at the Sun more, I break into singing these lines … ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’ … yes there is song which I had heard in my childhood, but another moment I confused it with ‘oonchi oonchi baaton se kisi ka pet bharta nahin’, but corrected myself that that the two were different songs.

Somewhere the tune of both of these songs appear to be connected because both songs are composed by the same music director Rajesh Roshan.
However, I had forgotten the name of the movie of this song ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’.

So, I checked about the song and also checked on the blog if it was already covered.
Luckily it was not and thus this opportunity for me to present it here on the blog.

This song is from the 1978 movie ‘Muqqaddar’!!!

Earlier I had planned to send this article during the festival of Diwali, however I could not send it then …

***
When I was still finishing this article, I got to listen the last episode of ‘2018’ of our Primer Minister’s ‘Man Ki Baat’ and also became aware of the recent happenings of the All India DGP/IGP Conference and the awards for ‘National Unity’. Then the PM also highlighted about the many achievements in Sports by India and I when he narrated about a twenty-year-old cyclist and the feat she achieved I real felt very proud about it and was stunned to know that she cycled almost 300 kms every day to complete world tour in 159 days (and to become the ‘first Asian’ to do so) …

At the same time, I was very sad to read a news about a ‘fact check’ for PM’s waiving a train – whether he was ‘waiving an empty train’, which was on its first journey from the newly inaugurated of ‘Bogibeel Bridge’.

This news proves how low we have fallen down in our ‘socio-political’ ‘ethics and morality’. And I am not taking side of any parties involved in this. Even this thought of raising doubt at such an event at this level is very disappointing and it is a sad comment on our day to day affairs where other serious issues are being mocked by peoples having their ‘own selfish motives’.

Let us wish that ‘false propaganda’ and ‘false allegations’ not take over the real concerning issues of our country and let people use the social media with maturity.

Well ‘neki aur badi ki ladaayi jabse duniya bani hai tabse se chali aa rahi hain, agar buraayi na ho to koi achchaayi ko na poochhe, oonchaai ko samajhne ke liye hamehsa nichhayi ko samajhna chaahiye’

And between this ‘neki and badi’ is our Police force who safeguards us and safeguards our Nation in turn from the various ‘crimes’ in our society … I salute to them all and hope they keep up the good work rising above ‘caste, creed, religion, and beliefs’, in the interest of ‘National Unity’ forever …

Our today’s movie – ‘Muqaddar-1978’ is ‘DEDICATED TO, THE TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR SOLDIERS! THE UNSUNG HEROES! THE POLICE!!

And the dialogues mentioned above are not mine … Abdul Bhai (Yunus Parvez) is saying this to Inspector Vijay Saxena (Sanjeev Kumar) in our today’s movie …

Abdul Bhai runs a ‘road side dhaba’ and Inspector Vijay is his daily customer, and when Abdul Bhai suggests Vijay that he should get married so that he doesn’t have to worry about his food …

‘meri shaadi to us din ho gayi thhi jis din main police mein bharti huaa thha’
‘Chori dakaiti murder ye sab ek wafaadaar biwi ki tarah hamesha mere saath lage rehte hai…
‘Aisaa lagta hai Abdul Bhai is duniya se achchhe aadmi uthh gaye hain’

(Sanjeev Kumar at his best and the dialogues of this movie also, I think, very nice, I thought it was Kader Khan, but no, they are by Dr. Balkrishna Mauj)

Meanwhile as Inspector is taking his dinner a ‘bhikhari budhhiya’ comes and ask for ‘kuchh khilaa do’, Vijay asks Abdul Bhai’s assistant to give her food and he will pay for it …
‘main gareeb ki madad karne ke khilaaf nahin hoon Vijay Bhai, lekin kisika haath paaon salaamat ho to use bheekh dena use kaamchor banaana hai’ … (Abdul Bhai’s sincere thoughts …)

‘Abdul Bhai aadmi ka sabse badaa dushman uska pet hai, agar wo bhara rahe to thhik hai, agar khali ho jaaye to dimaag se jhagdaa karta, aur phir kuchh karta hai jise ham pasand nahin karte’ (Inspector Vijay’s statement on reality (fact check? 😊 )

As the Bhikhari Buddhiya is crossing the road a car hits her and run away … Inspector Vijay follows the car, and as usual taking ‘Kaanoon’ in his hands ‘beats the ‘badmaash(s)’ … but then he has to face his senior – played by Jairaj – and his ‘quintessential’ questions (which are valid even today?)

‘jis buddhiya ki khaatir tumne ye sab kuchh kiya hai wo ab bhi maje se bheekh maang rahi hai, aur jinhe jail mein hona chaahiye thha wo asptaal mein pade hain’
‘Police force ko tumne apne haathon ki taaqat aajmaane ka jariyaa samjha hai’(Jairaj)

Sir un logon ne mujhe rishwat dene ki koshish ki hai, samajhte thhe Police ko kharida ja saktaa hai, is tauheen se mera khoon khaul utthaa’

Tumne unhe wahin sazaa dene ki koshish …, Ye dekho aaj ke akhbaar, ‘police maarpit ke liye hai ya rokne ke liye’, Governer, Mayor na jaane kitne phone aa chuke hain,
‘wo sab chaahte hai ke tumhaare khilaaf action liyaa jaaye’

Lekin Sir mujhe unse koi jaati dushmani nahin thhi

Jaati dushmani mujhe bhi tumse nahin hai …

Main tumhe dhaaravi ke ilaake mein transfer karta hoon, Jahaan kuchh sakht kisam ke mujrim active hai … tumhe apni taaqat aazmaane ka poora poora mauqa milega’ Ya to tumhaari sakhti se sudhar jaayenge, ya to wo log tumhe apne aap par kaabu rakhna sikha denge

So, our Inspector is now in Dharavi, and he already has a sincere and dedicated assistant there – Patil (Bharat Kapoor) … who eventually sacrifices his life since he has been asked that ‘is mujrim pe goli mat chalana’ … but mujrim fires on him …

In Dharavi we have Parishit Sahni as a ‘labour leader’ working in a ‘kapada mill’ of Amjad Khan who is also interested in ‘smuggling’ and to become the ‘wealthiest smuggler’ …
Amjad Khan has a sister – played by Rekha – who is interested in social work and has a soft corner towards labors in the ‘basti’ and Ramu Dada is there in the form of Shashi Kapoor who is a ‘spoiled’ younger brother of Parishit Sahni.
Vidya Sinha plays wife of Parishit Sahni, Shashi’s Bhabhi and Rekha’s friend. Paintal is Shashi’s lieutenant and accompanies him whenever he is driving truck and enjoying ‘mujaras’ after the day’s hard work …

Sanjeev Kumar after reaching Dharavi destroys many ‘daaru and matke ka addaas’ and declares to the goons …
“Aaj se jurm ki wo tehniyaa kat gayin hain, jinpe baithhke tum manmaani kiya karte thhe”

Ramu Dada is still not co-operating Inspector Vijay until he realises the real game of the Smugglers …
Vijay is hopeful of rehabilitating Ramu Dada and reform him to the ‘regular stream’ of ‘good people’ …

But how does it happen finally is after the today’s song and I would like the readers interest intact to watch this movie so not going in further details of this movie here … 🙂

Since the beginning of the movie many are waiting for ‘Dushehra’ festival, like Amjad Khan declares bonus to workers as he wants them to work on ‘Dushehre ki Chhutti’ and he can in hide of it arrange ‘smugglers meet’ so that no one doubts …

***
A beggar (Chandu) – deaf and dumb – always asking for money from Amar Babu (Parikshit Sahni), on his advice has given up begging and from the money given by Amar Babu is now making pictures of ‘Ganesh, Sai Baba’, and ‘Shri Ram’ made by Rangoli on the road side …

***

Peoples are celebrating ‘Dushehra’ now and that is where the today’s song happens …

‘The evil -Raavana’s effigy is set with its ten faces of ‘evils’ and Parikshit Sahni, Rekha, Vidya Sinha with the labors in the basti starts celebrating with this song and Shashi Kapoor joins in between ( coming back from his tour to Goa) , and at the end of the celebrations as the Ravana’s effigy is set to fire by the arrows of Parikshit and Shashi Kapoor, enters our Inspector Vijay Saxena – Sanjeev Kumar – for checking of the ‘truck’ driven by Shashi from Goa with smuggled items 😊

***

Rangon bhari aisi raat
Hey rang udey kahin deep jaley
Aayi holi deewaali saath
Arey aaj to aake naa jaaye re saathi
Rangon bhari aisi raat

Kaanton mein kaliyaan khilaa aa
Phoolon se gulshan sajaa
Kaanton mein kaliyaan khilaa aa
Phoolon se gulshan sajaa aa

Arey do din ki hasti mein
Dil jhoome masti mein
Aur sapnon ki basti mein
Tu mehnat ki jalti mashaalen jalaa aa
Sadiyon se soyaa muqaddar jagaa aa

Hoye ae ae ae ae
Hoye hoye hoye ae

Raat din hon ye mele re
Dil na tarse akele
Dil tera jisko chaahe ae
Badhke baahon mein le le

Ae saanson se bandh le
Saanson ki dori
Haathon mein le ke haath

Jaati hai jaan to jaaye khushi se
Chhoote kabhi naa ye saath

Ae saanson se bandh le
Saanson ki dori
Haathon mein le ke haath
Jaati hai jaan to jaaye khushi se
Chhoote kabhi naa ye saath

Baahon ke saaye mein aa
Sharmaa ke aankhen milaa

Ae baahon ke saaye mein aa
Sharmaa ke aankhen milaa
Phir paayal chhankegi
Phir choodi khankegi
Aur phir bindiyaa chamkegi
Tu mehnat ki jalti mashaalen jalaa aa
Sadiyon se soyaa muqaddar jagaa aa

Ho o ho ho o o

Barse tan ka paseena re
Ban ke saawan maheenaa

Katraa ban jaaye moti ee
Zarraa zarraa nageena
Hey aaj jahaan teri raahon mein saathi
Udey ghamon ke ye dhool

Phool khilenge wahin kal
Jhoom ke mast bahaaron ke phool

Aaj jahaan teri raahon mein saathi
Udey ghamon ke ye dhool
Phool khilenge wahin kal
Jhoomke mast bahaaron ke phool

Hey ae
Sooraj se aankhen milaa
Taaron ko o dharti pe laa aa
Sooraj se aankhen milaa
Taaron ko o dharti pe laa aa

Ye dharti teri hai
Ye sapne tere hain
Aur sab apne tere hain
Tu mehnat ki jalti mashaalen jalaa
Sadiyon se soyaa muqaddar jagaa
He ae ae aa
Mehnat ki jalti mashaalen jalaa
Sadiyon se soyaa muqaddar jagaa
Bachke bachke bachke …
Mehnat ki jalti mashaalen jalaa
Sadiyon se soyaa muqaddar jagaa
Immaandaari se aha aa aa
Mehnat ki jalti mashaalen jalaa
Sadiyon se soyaa muqaddar jagaa

Blog Day : 3818 Post No. : 14816

“Phaansi”(1978) was directed by Harmesh Malhotra for Eastern Films, Bombay. This movie had Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit, Ranjeet, Pran, Jeewan, Ifthikhar, Sapru, Urmila Bhatt, Sudhir, Rammohan, Mohan Sherry, Shetty, Birbal, Aarti, Rajrani, aruna Irani, Asrani etc in it. THe movie also had special appearances by Anwar Hussain, B M Vyas, Randheer, Poornima, Mohan Choti, Chaman Puri and Dev Kumar.

This movie was one of those one hundred odd movies that Shashi Kapoor had signed up after the fortuitious success of his “Chor Machaaye Shor”(1975). The success of that movie had more to do with the music but Shashi Kapoor was the biggest beneficiary. Produceers made a beeline signing up Shashi Kapoor. Shashi Kapoor signed up all the movies indiscriminately. He became so busy that he did not have “dates” to offer for the shooting of these movies. Those were the days when actors gave “dates” in units of “shifts”, but Shashi Kapoor began to give his “dates” in units of “hours” rather than “shifts”, much to the chagrin of his producers, including his elder brother Raj Kapoor, who had signed him up for “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” (1978).

I was no Shashi Kapoor fan, and I did not touc any of these Shashi Kapoor solo movies even with a barge pole.

Coming to “Phaansi”(1978), this movie was no great shakes. I did not watch it. The only thing worth remembering in this movie was a Rafi-Sulakshana Pandit duetsong, “jab aati hogi yaad meri.” This song, one out of four songs in the movie has already been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Phaansi”(1978) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a mujra dance song where Aruna Irani plays the mujre waali and Shashi Kapoor is her centre of attention. To this date, I have not understood why Hindi movie heroes (who were supposed to be men of virtue) would make their presence felt in the mujra songs of those days. 🙂


Song-Hamaari beqaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena (Phaansi)(1978) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

Lyrics

humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir
idhar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir
idhar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si
nazar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar

kya batlaaun mere qaatil
kaise tumko paaya hai
jab galiyaan galiyaan dil bhatka
tab is manzil tak aaya hai
ajeeb hai ye pyaar ka safar bhi dekh lena
ajeeb hai ye pyaar ka safar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo
to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

aap ke deewaane bhi
aap ke deewaane bhi
aise kahaan baaz aate hain
dil se hain jo khelte
jaan pe bhi khel jaate hain
ab chaahe qayaamat uthh jaaye
deewaane kahaan ghabraate hain
ghabraate hain
ghabraate hain
tum aaj gham ke maaron ka jigar bhi dekh lena
tum aaj gham ke maaron ka jigar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo
to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

aa aa
loot ke baithhe ho tum
loot ke baithhe ho tum
kis ko andheri raaton mein
lahu ye hai ke rang hai
kuchh to laga hai haathon mein
yoon hi nahi kaha jaane jahaan
kuchh dam hain humari baato mein
haan baato me
ae ji baaton mein
udegi subah tak koi khabar bhi dekh lena
udegi subah tak koi khabar bhi dekh lena
humaari bekaraar si nazar bhi dekh lena
jo sab ko dekh lo to phir idhar bhi dekh lena

Blog Day : 3811 Post No. : 14807

After yet another hiatus of a few months, I am back on the blog today (24 december 2018).

And I’m sure most people who know me here, will know why. 🙂

Yes, it is that big day for Hindi film music lovers all around the world today – it is the birth anniversary of Mohammad Rafi, or, as he is affectionately and reverentially referred to by many, Rafisaab.

And while I might miss out on writing on any other anniversary on this blog, this is one date I try my best to never miss. As I’ve said many times before, this is my very small, entirely insignificant, way of saying “thank you” to the person who has given me countless hours of happiness in my life.

Different people derive happiness from different things. For me, music has always been a core part of my existence for as long as I can remember. I often have a song on my lips – often sub-consciously. This has occasionally led to embarrassing situations but thankfully it has never affected my love or passion for music. And I think I’m in very good company on this one – there are so many people out there for whom music is an integral part of their daily lives.

This is also one big reason we are all here together on this blog. HFM lovers, from all parts of the world, in all age-groups, sharing their love for HFM.

And when we talk of HFM, especially during its golden age, it’s hard not to talk of Rafisaab.

This is why I write tributes to him at least twice a year. On his death anniversary, and on his birth anniversary. I do write about him on other occasions too, but if I miss out on either of these occasions, I feel I’m letting him down. For all that he has given me, can’t I even write a few words on these specific occasions to pay tribute to him?

So here I am today.

Now, what should I write?

I’ve written many posts here on Rafisaab and discussed my feelings about him. About his songs, his personality, how he managed to break in and find a special place in my heart and my life, at a time when Kishore Kumar was absolutely king. There’s nothing more I can write that will not be a repetition.

Yet, the sheer joy of writing about Rafisaab is so exhilarating that, at the risk of boring readers, I will share a few thoughts.

After all, when I watch videos of Jeetendra narrating his now-famous Deedar-e-Yaar experience with Rafisaab, or Shammi Kapoor narrating his “aasmaan se aaya farishta” story about Rafisaab, or SP Balasubramaniam talking about “deewana hua baadal”, I enjoy listening to these stories every single time. I know the stories inside out by now, but the passion and love with which these stories are narrated, is itself special for me.

It would surprise no one if I said that, as an early-1970s boy, the one male singer who was my universe at that time was Kishore Kumar. In those days I’d often listen to “current songs” – and naturally that meant his songs were playing everywhere, on every single radio programme, every single day.

Other singers like Mukesh and Manna Dey (and even Rafisaab) would also figure but almost like an exception. Kishore’s was easily THE most dominant male voice of the time.

I was very fond of Kishore Kumar – in my classroom in school, my friends would all invariably sing the latest Kishore songs.

Then one day, I think it was the afternoon 1.00-1.30 programme (I don’t remember its name), I happened to listen to an old song.

At that time I had only vaguely heard of that song. So I knew a few lines but I’d never heard its rendition before.

What was this song! What was this voice! Who was this singer!

I stood transfixed. Rongte khade ho gaye.

I knew it wasn’t Kishore. And when the announcer said “abhi aapne Mohammad Rafi ko film Baiju Baawra mein sunaa”, I realized that in my universe, the one where Kishore Kumar had until then occupied almost complete mindspace, I’d have to made room for another voice.

It wasn’t as if I hadn’t heard Rafisaab songs till then. Of course I had. But my mind had been so full of Kishore, that every other voice had been drowned out in the process. Hey, I was still a young boy then, so not particularly discerning.

That song was “o duniya ke rakhwaale”.

How I wanted to hold on to that song! To listen to it again. And again.

From the initial “bhagwaan” to the “rakhwaale, rakhwaale”, I didn’t know what hit me. The highs and lows, the peaking and the ebbing, the modulations, the way he sings “bhagwan” three times at the start – and each one is a different cry to God – there was no way this song was not going to make an impact on me.

Of course those were pre-internet days. I couldn’t just search for the song and play it again. ? And where I lived, I didn’t even have access to a music store – nor would I have been able to buy a cassette even if I’d wanted to.

At that time I could only hope that I’d get to listen to the song again. In fact, that was how things were in those days. You’d listen to a song, love it – and then hope it would come in a farmaish again. 🙂

From that moment onwards, I became a keen Rafisaab listener. I am sure the same songs that I might not have paid attention to earlier, suddenly began speaking to me. I distinctly remember songs like “suhaani raat dhal chuki” (a Vividh Bharati favourite 🙂 ) , “parbaton ke pedon par”, “ek dil ke tukde hazaar hue”, “ye teri saadgi”, amongst others.

Every single song I listened to, I fell in love with.

When I listened to “kar chale hum fida”, I had tears in my eyes. Many years later I saw the film but Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics, Madan Mohan’s music and Rafisaab’s voice – how can you remain impassive to that song?

When I listened to “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, it transported me to a different world. Again Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics are magical, and Rafisaab’s rendition elevates them to a different level altogether.

Another song I got to listen to, and was extremely fond of at that time (I still am!), was “karwaan guzar gaya”. I’ve always had a soft corner for good lyrics – and Neeraj’s lyrics, even by his high standards, are just amazing in this one.

I can reel off many more songs that I listened to – each one only further confirming to me that while Rafisaab might have had a decline in the early 70s, to even suggest that he was in any manner a lesser singer than Kishore Kumar was sheer lack of understanding of music.

My paternal grandmother, who didn’t know a word of Hindi, and didn’t know who Kishore Kumar or Rafisaab were, clearly had a discerning ear. We had a cassette of Abhimaan at home – it would play a lot. It would start with “meet na mila”, and while every song in the film is a gem in its own right, she’d always tell me to play THAT song. Yes, “teri bindiya re” – which is one of my favourite songs of the 1970s.

So this is how Rafisaab managed to break into my Kishore Kumar-dominated young mind. 🙂

And since then he has a permanent and very special place in my mind and heart. In my younger days I didn’t have access to much music other than via radio – now of course it has all changed. I spend hours listening to music, many of these hours listening to Rafisaab. No particular song or playlist – just randomly listening to his songs, one after another. One moment it could be “mere mehboob tujhe”, the next “tumhaari zulf ke saaye mein shaam”, the next “aye gulbadan”. Just listening to his voice gives me so much joy – just the way he joins in in “awaaz deke hamen tum bulao” is special for me. And the way he joins in the middle of “deewana mastaana hua dil” – it’s just so awesome!

So there’s the singer Rafisaab for me.

But my post would be incomplete if I limited it to just Rafisaab’s singing.

What makes him so much more special for me is the person he was. Obviously I never got to meet him, so this is secondhand, but there isn’t a single person who knew Rafisaab, who does not vouch for what a great human being he was. It wasn’t just his soft-spoken nature, he was kindness and generosity personified. He could easily have put on airs, he could have demanded a ransom price, such was his stature and such was the demand for his voice. Yet he was made of a different stock – “kuchh aur mitti ke hi baney the”. There wasn’t a single trace of arrogance or greed in him.

Rafisaab did not hesitate to work with upcoming composers, giving them hits in the process. He knew their financial position and would even refuse to take more than just a token from them. Throughout his career, he believed that whatever he had achieved was due to the grace of God – he would often point upwards when someone praised his singing.

No wonder then that Rafisaab is remembered today not just for his voice but also for the person he was. How often do you come across a person like this?

No wonder that on his death, crowds thronged the streets of Bombay to pay respect to him. This, despite pouring rain.

Is it any wonder that I am such a big fan of Rafisaab? And I can safely say there are many who are much bigger fans of him – main to kuchh bhi nahin.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a special occasion – so I’ve picked a song that I heard for the first time today.

I wanted to pick a song from Rafisaab’s supposedly “lean” period. For some reason, this period fascinates me. I’ve always supported the underdog – so if someone tells me that a particular singer had a bad patch in a particular phase of his career, there’s a good chance I’ll listen to songs of that singer in that particular phase. 🙂 It’s just the way my mind works.

I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it today.

It has trademark Rafisaab elements in it – and is a pleasant song to listen to. I didn’t want a sad song for the occasion, after all it’s his birth anniversary.

It’s from a film, Gunaah Aur Kanoon (1970). I have no clue about the film but going by the name, it sounds a bit like Crime and Punishment. 🙂

The song itself is definitely worth a listen. Music is by Sapan Jagmohan, who might not have been in the top rung of composers, but have created quite a few memorable tunes of their own.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did while listening to it the first time. I have already listened to it a few times now. 🙂


Song-Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin(Gunaah Aur Kanoon) (1970) Singer-Mohammad Rafi, Lyrics-Anwar Farrukhabadi, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Jo baat janam le le dil mein
Jo baat janam le le dil mein
Us baat ka kyun izhaar na ho
Us baat ka kyun izhaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Maana ke jawaani hai aayi
tauba
Ye nasheeli angdaayi ee ee
Maana ke jawaani hai aayi
Tauba ye nasheeli angdaayi
Thham thham ke baras ae shokh ghata
Thham thham ke baras ae shokh ghata
Jazbaat ki hadd se paar na ho
Jazbaat ki hadd se paar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Ye shaam ki surkhi gaalon par
Haaye
Ye raat ka aanchal baalon par r
Ye shaam ki surkhi gaalon par
Ye raat ka aanchal baalon par
Pad jaaye nazar tujh par jiski
Haaye pad jaaye nazar tujh par jiski
Kaise wo tera beemaar na ho
Kaise wo tera beemaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
