Two signature melodies, one sweet voice,

Do Naina, Aur Ek Kahaani

Do Panchhi, Do Tinke, Kaho Le Ke Chale Hain Kahaan

And the voice – Aarti Mukherjee.

Celebrating Aarti ji’s birthday today – she turns 76 today. Greetings and best wishes to her for good health, and many more such celebrations to follow.

Aarti ji was born in Calcutta, in 1943. Along with her formal school education, her grooming in classical music also continued side by side, at the feet of teachers like Shri Chinmoy Lahiri, Shri Susheel Bannerjee and Ustad Mohammed Sageeruddin. It was a childhood dream for her to be a famous singer, and be counted in the same list as Lata Mangeshkar.

In her teen years – she was just 12 or 13, in 1955 she appeared in the ‘All India Music Talent Contest’ in Calcutta. Then couple of years down the road, in 1957, she participated in the Metro-Murphy Talent Search Contest held in Bombay. The panel of judges were the esteemed cream of music directors from Hindi cinema – Anil Biswas, Naushad, Vasant Desai and C Ramchandra. She was judged to be the winner in the female singer category. This recognition opened doors for her as a playback singer in the world of cinema. She was just fourteen years old.

Vasant Desai gave her the debut break when he invited her to sing for the 1958 film ‘Do Phool’. It is a chirpy lilting children’s song that she rendered so effectively – “Matak Matak Naachoon Re”. Oportunities started to come her way. She sang a duet with Lata ji, for the film ‘Sahaara’, also 1950 – “Atkan Matkan Dahi Chatokan”. Then on to ‘Schoolmaster’ in 1959, and ‘Angulimaal’, ‘Apna Ghar’ in 1960. The song “Dheere Dheera Dhal Re Chanda” is one of her earliest popular melodies.

In 1962, she got her first break in Bangla films, with the film ‘Kanya’. Her versatility and her sweet voice helped her to make a place for herself in the Bangla cinema, coming quickly to the level of popularity of Sandhya Mukherjee, who was the lead playback singer in that era. She has given playback to almost all the stalwart leading ladies of Bangla cinema of that time – Aparna Sen, Sharmila Tagore, Madhabi Mukherji, Debashri Roy, and Tanuja etc.  Her popularity was at its peak in 1970s.

Meanwhile, she continued to sing in Hindi films, such sweet renditions like – “Mat Jaiyo Piya Pardes Sajaniya Paiyaan Pade Re” (‘Vidyapati’, 1964), “Saara Mora Kajra Chhudaaya Tu Ne” (‘Do Dil’, 1965), “Kirnon Ki Dori Chaand Ka Palna” (‘Maya Sundari’, 1967), “Jaago Anjaani Rajdulaari” (‘Ek Surat Do Dil’. 1968), and more.

In 1975 came the popular and successful ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ – in which Ravindra Jain gave us such beautiful melodies – “Shyam Teri Bansi. . .”, “Kar Gaya Kaanha Milan Ka Waada” and “Main Wahi, Darpan Wahi”.

Aarti ji has won the Filmfare award for the best female playback singer in 1983 for the song of ‘Maasoom’ – “Do Naina. . .”. She has also won the Bengal Film Journalists Award for best playback singer in 1967, for film ‘Golpo Hoelo Satyi’ and 1976, for ‘Chhutir Phande’. For her vocal performance in ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975), she was honored with the Mian Tansen Award.

Today, I present a very interesting and a very pleasing melody from the 1959 film ‘Schoolmaster’. The film is a Hindi remake of the 1958 hit Kannada film, of the same name. The film is produced and directed by BR Panthulu, under the banner of Padmini Pictures. The star cast for this film is listed as BR Panthalu, Radha Kishan, Ulhas, MV Rajamma, Shakeela, B Saroja Devi, Kamini Kadam, Lalita Pawar, Achla Sachdev, Karan Diwan, David, Jawahar Kaul, Raja Gosavi, Puranik, Vishwa Mehra, Shivaji Ganeshan, Baby Laxmi, Kusumlata, Kumuda, Shashikala, Venkatesh, Gopi Nath, Ganesh, Vijay, Pramod, and Ramesh. The story of the film is a typical family drama of a joint family – a retired schoolmaster with three sons, and he ends up losing his house and even a respectful accommodation with his children. This theme has been replayed in many films, earlier and later.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. All the song have been written by Kavi Pradeep. The music is by Vasant Desai. Vasant Desai has used as many 10 playback singers in this film – Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Mahendra Kapoor, Pradeep, Lalita, Indu and Sarla. And then there is this one solo song in the voice of Aarti Mukherjee.

A lovely melody, and a very lovely rendition. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ek Do Teen, Gin Bhai Gin  (School Master) (1959) Singer – Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics – Kavi Pradeep, MD – Vasant Desai

Lyrics

Tumhaare bina o sajna adhoori hoon main 14690 12-Oct-2018

Here is the fourth and final song from “Aarambh”(1976) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Aarti Mukherji. Shri Shalabh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anand Shankar.

Only the audio of the song is available. Assuing that Rama Vij was the leading lady of the movie, my guess is that this song was picturised on her (playing a wronged lady) standing near a piano (being played by the hero) where she is blessing the hero despite being wronged. 🙂

Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get one word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, all the songs in the movie are now covered and “Aarambh”(1976) joins the list of movies that are YIPPIED in the blog. This movie becomes the 150th movie starting with the letter “A” that has been YIPPIED in the blog. 🙂


Song-Khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe (Aarambh)(1976) Singer-Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics-Shri Shalabh, MD-Anand Shankar

Lyrics

khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe
zindagi pyaar ke saanche mein sada dhalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe

manzilen khud hi miley raah se teri aakar
manzilen khud hi miley raah se teri aakar
tere jazbaat e tamanna ki raushni paa kar
teri azmat mein
azmat mein
nihaan rasme wafa milti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe
khush rahe ae
khush rahe tu

zindagi phoolon bhari geeton bhari ho teri ee
zindagi phoolon bhari geeton bhari ho teri
bas yahi ek dua tere liye hai meri
tere gulshan mein kali kali
khwaabon mein pali khilti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe
zindagi pyaar ke saanche mein sada dhalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu
khush rahe ae
khush rahe tu

Song-Tumhaare bina o sajna adhoori hoon main (Aarambh)(1976) Singer-Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics-Shri Shalabh, MD-Anand Shankar

Lyrics

tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main
tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main
jiski manzil ho tum
aisi doori hoon main
tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main

mere man ke gagan ke tumhi chandrma
meri har raat tumse bani poornima
tum ho baadal
tumhaari mayuri hoon main
jiski manzil ho tum
aisi doori hoon main
tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main

tum mujhe yoon miley
gandh se jyun pawan
dhany hai paa tumhen mera tan mera man
preet ki kalpna se poori hoon main
jiski manzil ho tum
aisi doori hoon main
tumhaare bina o sajna
adhoori hoon main

My workplace has a bank in its premises. Yesterday (7 march 2018), the female branch manager of the bank came to me seeking permission to organise a seminar for women. “Tomorrow 8 march is women’s day, you know”- she explained.

So today (8 march 2018), the bank organised a women’s day programme in the meeting hall of our workplace. The bank manager spoke on the occasion, I was asked to speak on the occasion. Bank had invited a gynaecologist who spoke about cancer among females and preventive measures to be taken.

In my address, I mentioned that I was aware of today being Women’s day because I was aware of today was Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary. I also know that Sahir Ludhianvi was born on Women’s day. 🙂 So I was aware of 8 march being the women’s day. I need to thank Raja because his articles about Sahir Ludhianvi on these occasions over the years has had the effect of this date getting indelibly ingrained in my brain’s ROM. 🙂

I cannot help but talk of Indian economy whenever I address people, no matter if they are women. 🙂 I stated that Indian GDP was growing at 7% per year. At this rate, an economy doubles in size every ten years. Indian today is a $ 2.5 trillions economy, ten years ago it was a $ 1.2 trillions economy whereas twenty years back India was $ 442 billions economy. So Indian economy is getting doubled up every ten years. I expressed the view that the contribution of Women in Indian workforce is quite meagre. If they join in the workforce and contribute to the national GDP then Indian may grow at a higher rate which means India may start doubling its economy every 6-7 years instead of every 10 years.

I also stated that we should not expect others to do our work. We popularly feel that “sarkaar” should do everything. Who is “sarkaar” ? We are “sarkaar”, since we are a unit of a central government organisation ourselves. If we improve our performance then we will help add our mite to the growth of Indian economy. Then I informed our female staff, and also the female staff of the bank how our unit was in some way among the best units in its category, thanks to the hard work done by us over the past couple of years.

Then I declared that I practiced in my personal life what I was preaching as far as women empowerment was concerned. 🙂

It is my opinion that every day is women’s day and not just 8 march. For that matter every day is man’s day as well, and every day is a children’s day as well. why wait for that designated day. we can observe these days every day. 🙂

Women empowerment does not mean using the term as a buzzword for page 3 discussion. It means given women the freedom to do what they want to do with their lives without requiring to give explanations to others, viz family, society etc and they deserve to get all the support that they can get.

There are some Hindi movies that can be described as movies supporting this theme. I posted the penultimate song of “Tapasya”(1975) recently and in the process I realised that the movie was a befitting movie to be showcased on Women’s day. This movie is based on a story by Ashapoorna Devi, a Gyanpeeth Award and Padmshree award winner Bangla novelist.

This movie was directed by Anil Ganguly for Rajshre Productions. The movie had Raakhi (in the central role), Parikshat Sahni, Asrani, Manju Bansal Asrani, A K Hangal, Nasir Hussain, Adil, Manju Bhatia, Urmila Bhatt, Birbal, Abha Dhulia, C S Dubey, Raja Duggal, Master Eknath, Gayatri etc in it.

The Hindu newspaper carried the following review of this movie :-

…We have Indrani Sinha (Raakhi Gulzar), eldest daughter of an ailing professor, Chandrakant Sinha (AK Hangal), caring for her father and three younger siblings. The college going Indu (as Indrani is fondly called) and the ailing professor’s doctor, Sagar Verma (Parikshat Sahni) fall in love, and just when Indu goes to Sagar’s house to meet his mother (Lalita Pawar), disaster strikes.

Chandrakant Sinha bids adieu to the world, leaving the responsibility of his three younger children on the shoulders of Indu, who takes the selfless decision of not getting married. In the midst of heart tugging drama and poignancy, she spurns Sagar’s proposal for marriage, even though he offers to take the three siblings to his house and care for them. Her decision is moulded to a certain extent by Sagar’s mother’s belief that being saddled with her family’s responsibility, Indu might be unable to fulfil her commitments as a wife and daughter-in- law.

To make ends meet and take care of her siblings, Vinod (Asrani), Madhu and Chanda, Indu leaves her studies and starts a school on the advice of her father’s colleague (Nazir Hussain). The first sign of dissent in the house surfaces when Vinod is exhorted to leave his house by his prospective father-in-law (Om-Shivpuri) in lieu of a good job. After the marriage, Vinod and his wife, Pinky comes to Indu’s house to attend a function. During the course of song and dance, an irritated Pinky (Manju Asrani), has an altercation, first with Madhu and Chanda, which results in an escalation of tension, at the end of which Indu slaps Vinod for offending Sagar.

A chastised and hurt Sagar decides to stop meeting Indu, and leaves on a pilgrimage with his mother. In his absence, Indu concludes the marriage of her two sisters. Thereon, she decides to leave her house for a sabbatical, but in the nick of time Vinod and Pinky come, with Pinky atoning for her prudishness. With everything settled, the only question is the outcome of Indu’s sacrifice and Sagar’s wait?

Of the cast, Asrani is a revelation. One cannot but rue the penchant of Bollywood to typecast brilliant and versatile actors into silos which they are unable to break again. Parikshat Sahni, in a restrained portrayal that suits his limited histrionic prowess, is ideal opposite Rakhee. Rest of the character actors, including Hangal, Lalita Pawar and Nazir Hussain are competent in their roles.

The movie had four songs in it. Three of the songs have been covered in the past. These are the three most well songs from the movie. Here are the details of songs already covered in the blog:-

The fourth and final song, which is the song under discussion is one that I had never heard before. But when I heard this song for the first time, I realised that this song was a special song and this deserved to be discussed as the last song, and on a special occasion with a special writeup. So here is this heart warming song from a heartwarming movie on the occasion of Woman’s day. The song is sung by Aarti Mukherji. M G Hashmat is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

Picturisation shows Raakhi running her school and singing this song to young kids. Different stanzas in the song represent different years when Raakhi growing older and her younger siblings growing up. The younger siblings are finally shown grown up as the song comes to an end.

This movie “Tapasya”(1975) which I have not watched earned the national award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment for the year. In addition, Raakhi won the Filmfare award for best actress for her role in this movie. That way Raakhi did a Sanjeev Kumar in this movie, playing a role of an elderly woman when she was not even 30 years of age at that time !

With this lovely song, “Tapasya”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Bachchon tum ho khel khilaune (Tapasya)(1975) Singer-Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics-M G Hashmat, MD-Ravindra Jain
Chorus

Lyrics

bachchon tum ho khel khilaune

tumhaara khayaal
achaanak kadmon ko rokne lagta hai
dar lagta hai

adhoora na rah jaaye
aur kab tak intzaar karte rahoge

haha
main samajh gaya
tumhen is baat ka darr hai
ki kahin mere aane jaane se
tumhaari tapasya mein baadhaa na pad jaaye
main tumse vaada karta hoon Indu
ki jab tak tumhaari tapasya poori nahin hogi
main tumse nahin miloonga

mukhda tumhaara bhola bhaala
karta hai is ghar mein ujaala
mukhda tumhaara bhola bhaala
karta hai is ghar mein ujaala

didi hum hain khel khilaune

“Masoom” (1983) was inspired from “Man, Woman and Child written” by Erich Segal. And it must be said that the tale was very well adapted by Gulzar who wrote the screenplay and directed with great sensitivity and understanding by Shekhar Kapoor. There were few people in the audience who remained unmoved by the plight of eight year old Rahul (played by Jugal Hansraj), a result of one night affair between an unwed Bhawna (played by Supriya Pathak) and a happily married DK (Naseeruddin Shah) at Nainital at a time when DK’s wife Indu (Shabana Azmi) is expecting their first child. DK goes back home and has a happy family life with two daughters Pinky (Urmila Matondkar) and Minni (Aradhana).

Abdul Rashid Kardar belongs to the trio of directors who are called the Movie Mughals of the Hindi cinema world. The other two directors in this group are K Asif (Mughal e Azam, Mohabbat aur Khuda etc.) and Mehboob Khan (Roti, Mother India, Son of India etc.). They are called Movie Mughals, as all of them approached their profession with a big heart, and budget was never considered a constraint in the face of quality or perfection of their creations. The movie names listed are an ample illustration of this trait.
