Blog Day : 3912 Post No. : 14971

———————————————–
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 26
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day – the score card was six films, and six songs. The songs posted on that day are listed below.

 

Naino Me Pyaar Dole Sheroo 1957
Kaare Kaare Baadraa Bhaabhi 1957
Jab Baadal Lahraaya Chhoo Mantar 1956
Dil Pukaare Aare Aare Jewel Thief 1967
Tumhaari Nazar Kyun Khafa Ho Gayi Do Kaliyaan 1968
Har Haseen Cheez Ka Main Talabgaar Hoon Saudaagar 1973

 

Out of the six films, five films have since been Yippeee’d on the blog. I notice this interesting push for completing songs of a film. It seems that the preference is always to complete songs of films from 1950s and 1960s. Most of the time, when we are searching for a suitable selection for this Ten Years Challenge series, the films with songs pending are most likely to be not from 1950s and 1960s. I think it is a combination of preference for the melody and music of those two decades, plus the availability. On these two counts, the films from 1950s and 1960s would score the highest, and hence their quicker movement towards Yippeee status.

The film from this list, which still has songs remaining to be posted, belongs to 1973 – ‘Saudaagar’. When this film appeared in the theatres, the one surprising element was the lead pair – Amitabh Bachchan and Nutan, plus Padma Khanna of course. Once one got to know the storyline though, the choice would be rationalized. But at first sight, Nutan – a fairly senior lead actress by that time, paired opposite to an almost rank new comer, Amitabh Bachchan, at first raised some eyebrows. Nutan, having made her transition from child role (‘Hamaari Beti’, 1950) to lead actress roles with ‘Hum Log’ and ‘Nagina’ in 1951, had over two decades of career behind her. Amitabh, on the other hand, was just into the fifth year of his career. Having made a debut with the 1969 film ‘Saat Hindustani’, he was still seen as the Babu Moshai (‘Anand’, 1970), an actor in second lead type roles. No doubt, ‘Zanjeer’ also happened in 1973, and that put him on a fast track as an action hero. But when ‘Saudaagar’, and of course ‘Zanjeer’ were planned and were under production, the phenomenal succcess of the latter film was still into the future. At such a time, the casting of ‘Saudaagar’ surely surprised critics and audiences alike.

The film’s story is a sensitive portrayal of a love triangle, in which one side of the triangle is actually a pretense, nay a fraud, mounted by the male protagonist, for a vested interest, which is to finance his betrothal to his real love interest. It is a plain case of a dishonorable deception, which goes way beyond cheating and defrauding for money – it is a devious fraud on the heart and emotions of gullible and vulnerable widow. Moti (Amitabh) is a young trader in gur (jaggery made from the juice of date palms). Majubee (Nutan) is a relatively older widow, expert in making the jaggery from the date juice. The two have business relations, in that Moti collects the juices from the date palms, brings to Majubee, who makes jaggery from it, and Moti sells it in the market.

Phool Banu appears on the scene, and Moti falls head over heels for her. His efforts to gain a bride are thwarted by Phool Banu’s father, who demands a handsome meher amount for the marriage. Unable to procure the hefty amount demanded, Moti hatches a plan in his mind – he decides to get married to Majubee, and save money on the production process of gur, because he would not have to pay Majubee, once he becomes her husband. Majubee is shocked and surprised by the proposal, refuses at first, but then slowly gives in to the cajoling and pursuance by Moti. They get married. At the end of one season of gur making, Moti saves enough to pay the meher for his desired bride. He divorces Majubee, and immediately marries Phool Banu. Majubee is devastated, and completely broken, at being used such by this devious man, who has used her and defrauded her of her vulnerable honor in life.

But the story does not end here. As it turns out, Phool Banu has no inkling of the gur making proces. Her main interests in life are “Sajna Hai Mujhe Sajna Ke Liye“. Moti, unable to now supply good quality gur in the market, loses his reputation, and his business. The affluence is gone, the reputation is gone, and so is the dream of a happily-ever-after life with his beloved. And the story moves further. . . to be dealt with in another post later. 🙂

The film is produced by the house of Rajshree – Rajshree Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay. It is directed by Sudhendu Roy. Besides the three important stars already named, the impressive cast of actors includes Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V Gopal, CS Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadira, Ras Raj, Paritosh Choudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Rai, Jugnu, Chandu Allahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habeeba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, and Baby Shamina.

Geet Kosh lists seven songs for the film. All the songs are created by the lyricist – MD Ravindra Jain. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen, it is performed by Padma Khanna, as she is walking back home from the river banks, after having crossed it on a boat. Amitabh has seen her, and is following her from the boat itself. Of course Padma Khanna, i.e. Phool Banu, is very much aware that she is being followed by this lanky and handsome young man. So she is playing the siren’s role to the hilt. Introduces herself in the song, she tells her pursuer about herself and her youth, and clearly communicates that she is verily enjoying the attention she is getting from him. In a couple of close shots, Amitabh looks very much like a provoked predator, as he eyes this willing beauty dancing for his benefit.

A catchy song, and enticing words. . . both characters are hunters, laying veritable traps for each other. 🙂

Blog Day : 3875 Post No. : 14896

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I love masala movies as much as I love movies which are close to reality. I am of the opinion that movies should make us forget our daily tensions as much as entertain us. There were a few movie makers during my growing up years whose films were a must-see for my parents as they were entertaining as well as showed middle-class families and their ways. These movies were generally targeted towards family audiences – ‘Khoobsurat’ (1980), ‘Golmaal’ (1979), ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) etc fell in this category and I must thank Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chaterjee for these gems.

Then there were these absolute entertainers which needed us to keep “logic at home” before going to see them. Else how does one explain the story of a pair of twins one of whom looks much older than the other -‘Dharam Veer’ (1977) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979). How does one explain the jumps in the climax; the heroes begin punching the villains on board a ship – belonging to a Rajput clan- that is anchored at sea but sing romantic songs and songs of friendship in the environs of Kashmir (in ‘Dharam Veer’). Or the heroes are following the villain who has kidnapped their mother through the streets of Mumbai on the way to the Juhu airport (which used to be where people parked their private aircrafts formerly) but strangely the streets look like some foreign land – turns out it was Singapore!! But when the climax scene is getting over, and the villains meet their final fate, all the places that Mumbaikars are familiar with make an appearance on the screen (in ‘Suhaag’).

Now ‘Suhaag’ and ‘Dharam Veer’ are two movies which I must have seen a number of times (have lost count) in spite of all these glaring ‘logic-less-ness’ (I know there is no such word in English language). There are a few other movies which fall under the ‘entertainer without logic’ category- ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Parvarish’ (1977), ‘Naseeb’ (1981), ‘Desh Premee’ (1982), ‘Coolie’ (1983), ‘Mard’ (1985) – which I have seen about 100 times (not exaggerating). And it seems the maker of these Mr. Manmohan Desai had the confidence that his audience will lap it all up without questions.

In recent times I have been seeing these series of videos on YouTube wherein Amitabh Bachchan (the permanent fixture in most of the above-mentioned Manmohan Desai movies) in company of Rishi Kapoor was relating how they enacted all those scenes, as directed by Manji (Manmohan Desai’s pet name apparently) even if they were not personally convinced that there was any logic in the scene. The duo specially drew attention to the “mother of all logiclessness” scene – three people lying in a row and donating blood to an accident victim. Now there is nothing illogical in three people donating blood; but blood from the three being collected into a single bottle? And a single tube carrying blood to the patient!!! And has anyone heard of the blood group of RH. Also, Amitabh pointed out how Manji thought the villains were brainless as they could not see through the disguise of 3 people who have gate-crashed into a wedding and singing on top of their voices – ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.

Anyway, such were the movies of Manmohan Desai in the 70s. He started making movies in the 60s with ‘Chhalia’ (1960) being his directorial debut. Which was followed by ‘Bluffmaster’ (1963), ‘Budtameez’ (1966), ‘Sachaa Jhootha’ (1970), ‘Kismat’ (1968) etc. Of the 20 films he made in a career span of 29 years 13 were successful. He had writers like Kadar Khan, KK Shukla, Prayag Raj, Salim Javed, Anand Bakshi, Sahir, Qamar Jalalabadi, Gulshan Bawra and Shailendra pen the stories and songs for these movies. He had also worked with Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmi Pyare, RD Burman and Anu Malik for music direction in his movies.

Today’s post is to remember the magic of Manmohan Desai on his 82nd birth anniversary and what better song than the one that shows his logical thinking. One patient getting blood from three donors all at once. 🙂

Blog Day : 3781 Post No. : 14761

I in this blog often talk about “natural” landmarks and “artificial” landmarks for the blog. “Natutral” landmaks for the blog are those that are intuitive, viz. century of songs in the blog, and later century of songs in the blog for an artist, a contributor etc.

Later, when we began to keep track of blog related statistics, we became aware when a duo of singers completed their century of duet songs, or the blog itself completed a century (or its multiple) of days.

Many of these “artificial” (more accurately “derived” or “secondary”) landmarks went unnoticed in the early days of the blog. For instance, we completed several hundred days and also thousand days in the blog but we remain blissfully unaware. In fact, the level of blissful unawareness was such that we did not even noticed it when the blog completed one year of its existence on 19 july 2009. 🙂

We have come a long way since.

While many of these landmarks events have to be created by effort, there are some landmarks that happen on their own. Time related landmarks, viz hundreds of days or thousands of days get achieved with time.

Likewise, number of visitors in the blog also happen with time, though that is dependent on factors like ability of the blog to attract visitors.

This blog had a humble beginning on 19 july 2008. During its early days, it attracted less than 100 visitors daily. There were only 406 visitors for the blog during july 2008, the month when this blog started.

I regarded it as a “landmark” occasion when the blog clocked more than one hundred visits for the first time. It was on 16 august 2008, the day of Rakhi festival, when I covered the iconic Rakhi song Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana .

The blog averaged 31 visitors a day in july 2008 and 72 visitors a day in august 2008 before breaking into the three figure region with 276 visitors per day during september 2008. 23 january 2009 was the first day when this blog received more than one thousand visitors in a day. 1145 visitors arrived on the blog on that day. The blog reached four figure a day mark for the first time during february 2009 with 1069 visitors daily. It was in june 2011 that the 2000 mark was breached for the first time. An average of 2226 visitors visited daily during this month. It took only two more months to reach the 3000 visitors a day mark. August 2011 saw 3109 visitors daily in the blog. The next peak arrived in october 2011. It was not 4000 mark or 5000 mark or even 6000 mark, rather an average of 7224 visiors per day that was achieved in this month ! On one particular day, viz 19 october 2011, as many as 10630 visitors arrived at the site !

It was too good to last though. By now we have settled at an average of over 3000 visitors daily.

In the process, the blog recorded its first one million visits on 25 october 2010, after 829 days. The subsequent million visits have come rather more quickly, as can be expected. The third millionth mark was reached the fastest- in just 152 days. Now a days, it is taking around 300 odd days (nearly ten months ) to reach one million visitos mark.

The blog clocked 10 million visits on 14 january 2018 at around 22:30 IST. The 11th million visitor was clocked on 22 november 2018 at around the same time.

Here is the summary of the eleven million visitors in the blog so far:-

Number of Visitors Date when achieved Blog day days taken for the million visits
1 million 25-Oct-10 829 days 829
2 millions 07-Nov-11 1207 days 378
3 millions 30-Apr-12 1359 days 152
4 millions 10-Dec-12 1606 days 247
5 millions 29-Oct-13 1929 days 323
6 millions 12-Oct-14 2277 days 348
7 millions 04-Jul-15 2542 days 265
8 millions 20-Apr-16 2833 days 291
9 millions 24-Feb-17 3144 days 311
10 millions 14-Jan-18 3466 days 332
11 millions 22-Nov-18 3779 days 313

I was wondering what song to discuss on the occasion. Finally I zeroed in on a joyous song from “Kaala Pathhar”(1979). This song is sung by Rafi, Lata, S K Mahan, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The picturisation shows almost the entire star cast (this was a multi starrer movie !) – viz Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh, Parveen Babi etc.

The video version of this song from “Kaala Patthar”(1979) is nearly six minutes long. But the audio version is even longer (nearly eight minutes long). I have provided both version of the some here.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement. It goes without saying that it was the support and encouragement of music lovers that helped the blog achieve this impressive number of visits from music lovers. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue on its merry ways with many more landmarks to achieve enroute.

Blog Day : 3699 Post No. : 14617

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I have written two posts in the past to celebrate this actor’s birthday. Both times the occasion had been a last-minute discovery. Also last year I happened to discover that this actor shared his special date with music composer- Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, of the Laxmikant- Pyarelal duo.

Pyarelal Sharma was the son of a trumpeter popular as “Babaji” or Ramprasad Sharma and learnt the basics of music from his father. He was tutored to play the violin by a Goan musician, Anthony Gonsalves – a music composer and arranger who had assisted many prominent music directors of the 50s & 60s and it is widely believed that hugely popular song “My name is Anthony Gonsalves” that Laxmi-Pyare composed for Manmohan Desai’s Amar Akbar Anthony was a tribute to Pyarelalji’s music teacher. He made his entry into movies along with Laxmikant Kudalkar by assisting all the reputed composers of the 50s. In fact, they also assisted R D Burman in his first movie “Chhote Nawab” and their friendship continued even after L-P made a name for themselves in later years. The stats page of our blog gives the number of songs by this duo as 2901 and we have posted only 772 songs; so that leaves us with a very wide choice to go with this post.

But when we try to find songs in combination with the actor who turns a year older today, things become slightly difficult. Though L-P have given music to many movies that starred this actor there are very few songs actually picturised or choreographed on him. This is partly because in the period when L-P were active this actor used to primarily play villainous roles. He might be present on the scene during a song or two but not actually shake a leg, “John Jaani Janardhan” from Naseeb is one such example (that was an L-P composition)- our today’s birthday boy is present in the song as Amitabh’s boss. Now I see an “Aah! I know who she is talking about” reaction from whoever is reading this.

Of course, there are two bosses for Amitabh in that song and so, without further ado, let us wish Shakti Kapoor on his birthday. 🙂
Today’s song is from Yash Johar’s Dharma Productions’ 1990 release “Agneepath” which was directed by Mukul Anand. The title was taken from Harivanshrai Bachchan’s poem with the same name which is recited at the beginning of the movie. It starred Amitabh Bachchan and Danny in main characters and Shakti Kapoor plays himself (an actor visiting Kancha Cheena, the villain, in his den) in a guest appearance for a song and dance sequence along with Archana Puran Singh.

The song confirms, what I always felt, that Shakti Kapoor was a better dancer than many of the lead actors, barring Mithun Chakravarty Jeetendra or Govinda (to name a few of our good dancing actors), of that time who used to be his co-stars. He definitely had a sense of rhythm. And he looks so good in this song, that I have a feeling he should have got a few lead actor or hero-type roles. I remember seeing him in a movie where Smita Patil falls in love with him and marries him only to be cheated later on. The same was the case with Swaroop Sampat in Himmatwala and Karamdaata.

The song was written by Anand Bakshi. Aadesh Shrivastava and Runa Laila are the playback singers. Goga Kapoor and Bob Christo are seen frolicking around in the party.

Here is wishing Pyarelalji and Shakti Kapoor a very Happy and musical birthday today (3 september 2018).

Blog Day : 3672 Post No. : 14555

Bappi Lahiri is a music director whose name is to this date associated with “Disco” music. He is also regarded as one who hastened the end of the golden era of HFM.

It may sound ironic that when one has to discusses Bappi Lahiri’s better compositions in HFM, one discusses his non disco songs, many of them from his pre disco phase. Even the great compositions of Bappi Lahiri during his “disco” phase were non disco songs. It was not “Disco Dancer” (1982) songs, but non disco songs from “Namak Halal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984) and “Aitbaar”(1985) that are fondly remembered to this day.

Why is it so ? It is easy enough to explain. Look at the singers of the non disco movies. Look at the lyrics of the non disco movie songs vis a vis the Disco movie songs. And also look at the actors who featured in the songs. Chalk in disco, cheese in non disco songs.

In this blog we mostly cover music of HFM era. Bappi Lahiri began his career when HFM era was still on and he created some memotable songs in his earlier movies. “Zakhmee”(1975) caught the imagination of the music lovers. I for a considerable period thought that R D Burman was the composer for this movie !

“Chalte Chalte”(1976) title song has become an iconic farewell song and it is sung in all get togethers in India till today that are held to bid farewell to people.

Songs of “Toote Khilaune”(1978) and “Shiksha”(1979) unfortunately did not become popular but what great songs they were. I feel that the failure of his great songs early in his career may have turned Bappi Lahiri into a cynic and he may have told himself-“to hell with classy music that does not sell.” His “disco” music indeed began selling like hot pakodas.

I intend to cover all available songs of music directors who were active during the golden era of HFM. Bappi Lahiri is a music director who only partially belongs to the golden era, so all his songs will not be covered in the blog. While I will cover all his songs created till 1980s, I will cover only those post 1980 songs of Bappi Lahiri that I feel belong here. There are indeed some such post 1980 songs, viz “Namakhalaal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984) etc that I have discussed earlier.

Bappi Lahiri is now on 99 songs in the blog. I had originally intended to cover one of his remaining worthy songs from post 1980 era, but now I feel that I should post one “rare” song on this occasion as we often do in the blog. This “rare” song is from a “rare” movie. This movie is “Ahsaas”(1979) which was a quickie movie made by G P Sippy in between his “mega” projects that he was known for. The movie, which was directed by S K Suri for Sippy Films, Bombay had a cast of largely unknown newcomers. Deena and Parwez were the lead pair. Others in the cast were Rakesh Bedi, Kiran Vairaale, Sahil, Reeta Raani Kaul, Chaand Usmani, Leela Mishra, Sundar, Mohan Sherry, Asha Potdar, Arun Desai, Deepak Raj, Sanjay Kaushik, Ashok Junior, K S Deshpande, Deenanath etc. Realising that the movie would fail to attract audiences unless it had a few big names, the movie makers had roped in names like Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Simmy, Bindu, Simple Kapadia and Amjad Khan. Amitabh Bachchan and Bindiya Goswami were also there in special roles. HFGK does not mention mention their names, but their faces were plastered prominently in the publicity posters of this movie.

Amitabh Bachchan and Bindiya Goswami figure in one party song in “Ahsaas”(1979). This song has been forgotten by most music lovers. I have chosen this song to serve as the 100th song of Bappi Lahiri in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Bindiya Goswami lip syncs in Lata’s voice,Amitabh Bachchan, who towers over every other participant in the picturisation dances in the song with a girl nearly one and a half foot shorter than him.

This forgotten sung is sung nicely by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. His lyrics show how a good lyricist could turn a song meant for a routine situation into a nice hummable song. It is sad that he and Anjaan would later be reduced to pen inane lyrics in future.

Here is this superb “party” song from a forgotten movie, which is the 100th song of Bappi Lahiri in the blog as a music director. With this, Bappi Lahiri becomes the 36th music director and 85th artist overall to notch a century of songs in the blog.

Blog Day : 3600 Post No. : 14368

Today (27 may 2018) is the 3600th day for the blog. I posted a light hearted song on the occasion. Now, here is a proper party song. 🙂

This song is from “Naseeb”(1981). “Naseeb”(1981) was an archtypical Manmohan Desai movie. It had Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Rishi Kapoor, Kim Yashpal,Pran, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Amrish Puri, Prem Chopra, Shakti Kapoor etc in it.

It is amazing to realise that this movie had just six songs in it but they were sung by as many as eleven singers ! Rafi, Lata, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Usha Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Anwar, Shhailendra Singh, Kamlesh Awasthi were the singers who lent their voices in these six songs.

Five songs from the movie have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these five songs :-

Post Date

John Jaani Janardan 68 4-Sep-08
Zindagi imtihaan leti hai 2546 18-Jun-10
Chal mere bhai tere haath jodta hoon 10401 24-Oct-14
Rang jama ke jaayenge 11621 1-Dec-15
Pakdo pakdo pakdo jakdo jakdo jakdo 13683 28-Oct-17

Theree is never a dull moment in a Manmohan Desai movie. There are many great HFM songs that are regarded as “better heard than watched”, but no Manmohan Desai song is likely to fall in that category. Manmohan Desai songs are almost always great treats to watch. These songs would tend to be long songs but audiences would still watch them spellbpound.

This song under discussion is no exception. Lilting Laxmikant Pyarelal prelude music begins while a cage descends on the banquet hall of the five star hotel. Hema Malini emerges out of a cage. This is somewhat (or rather delibetarely) reminiscent of Amitabh Bachchan emerging out of an easter egg in “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977), another Manmohan Desai blockbuster. Amitabh Bachchan is very much present here in this song as well- and this time as a waiter in that five star hotel who tends to double up as a singer as well as is testified in the song John Jaani Janardan from this movie.

Amitabh Bachchan may be waiting on the guests, but he also manages to dance a step or two in between serving the guests. 🙂 He would get to do this some more in “Namak Halal”(1982) a few months later. 🙂

In these parties, one is bound to have a guest showing undue interest on the female singer. Prem Chopra is that errant guest here. Oldtimers may recall that Prem Chopra was lusting after Hema Malini since the days of “Raaja Jaani”(1972) and he even got Hema Malini to sing a song or two for him. For instance, this song Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972). 🙂

Prem Chopra has a message for Hema Malini (dance ke baad kamre mein milo) and he gets Amitabh Bachchan to act as the instant messenger. Amitabh Bachchan, as is his wont, hands his tray over to Prem Chopra and goes towards Hema Malini to deliver the message. Whether Hema Malini is scandalised by the contents of the message is something we never get to know because the song resumes as if nothing happened.

The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The video of the song is over five minutes long. Still the video version has one stanza missing in it. The audio version of the song has all stanzas, but then this version has a few lesser lines (less repetition of lines) and the Amitabh Bachchan- Hema Malini dialogue is missing in the audio version.

The song is the title song and so it talks about “Naseeb” viz fate. Naseeb leads to coincidences which we already know even without Manmohan Desai telling us. This song as well as other songs of this movie too have some coincidences associated with them. This song, the sixth and final song from the movie appears on the 3600th day of the blog. The movie had another philosophical song in it, viz Zindagi imtihaan leti hai . And guess what ! That song was covered in the blog eight years ago on a day that happened to be the 700th day of the blog !

That is not all. The fifth and penultimate song from the movie, viz Pakdo pakdo pakdo jakdo jakdo jakdo was covered on the day when the final of Premier Kabaddi League was being played. Now, the sixth and final song from the movie is being covered on the day when the final of IPL is under progress as I type these lines. 🙂

So, without typing any more lines, here is this wonderful philosophical title song from “Naseeb”(1981) on the 3600th day of the blog.

With this song, all the songs of “Naseeb”(1981) are covered in the blog and “Naseeb”(1981) now joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Shaan” (1980) was a movie directed by Ramesh Sippy and produced by Sippy Films. Music was by Rahul Dev Burman and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The credits of the movie show a dancer shaking herself to Usha Uthup’s singing and Mohd. Rafi is credited as late Mohd. Rafi. (The release date of the movie was 12 Dec 1980.) Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and RD were the other singers.

Amitabh Bachchan- Shashi Kapoor- Shatrughan Sinha were the male lead with Sunil Dutt being credited as special appearance. Rakhee- Parveen Babi- Bindiya Goswami were the female lead with Helen and Bindu putting in guest appearances. Johnny Walker headed the supporting cast and Mazhar Khan made his debut in this movie and Kulbhushan Kharbanda got his first villain role, though the movie didn’t do the same wonders for him as Ramesh Sippy’s previous “Sholay” did for Amjad Khan. Salim- Javed were the script writers. The movie was of the typical-Bollywood-masala genre. Sunil Dutt played an upright cop with Amitabh and Shashi as his time-wasting, happy-go-lucky, “naalaayak” brothers who are jolted to being responsible persons when their brother gets gruesomely-murdered. Then the movie follows standard lines of the brothers seeking out the villain with the help of Shatru and entering the villain’s den in disguise as folk dancers etc. in between all this they also find time to con a few people, fall in love with the heroines, have lover’s tiffs (roothna manana etc.) That gives scope for around six/ seven songs in the movie of which two are love songs, one a club dance, etc. etc.

Today’s song is the club dance song which is in the vocals of Asha Bhonsle. The lead actors are present with the one-point mission of relieving Bindu (a maharani of some XYZ riyaasat) of the diamond necklace she is wearing. Bindiya Goswami and Johnny Walker have newly formed a team with Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor whereas Parveen Babi has made her own plans. I remember, at the time when this movie released, there was a lot of debate regarding the opening lines of the song. The version that used to play on the radio made the opener sound like Hema Malini’s voice and what was present on the audio cassettes sounded like Parveen Babi herself. And finally, what appeared onscreen sounded like Asha Bhonsle. At that time, in Binaca Geetmala, Ameen Sayani had remarked on this but now I can’t recall what was the final outcome of the debate on this point. But that need not stop us from enjoying the song today, right?

On the occasion of the 71st birthday of Ramesh Sippy, the maker of movies Andaz, Seeta aur Geeta, Sholay, Shakti, Saagar, Shaan etc. we are having the third song from Shaan. It also helps us in remembering Parveen Babi who passed away on 20th January 2005. The song shows Parveen Babi in what she was best at- a smiling glamourous beauty with luxuriant hair.


Song-Pyaar karne waale pyaar karte hain shaan se (Shaan)(1980) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman
Parveen Babi

Lyrics

“Dostaana” (1980) was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Raj Khosla for Dharma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, Helen, Pran, Jaageerdaar, Sajjan, Ifthikhar, K N Singh, Trilok Kapoor, Ruby Meyers, Jagdish Raj, Sudhir, Mc Mohan, Sharat Saena, Sudha Chopda, Paintal (guest appearance), Abhimanyu Sharma, Colonel Kapoor, Mohan Sherry, Birbal, Yunus Parwez, Goga Kapoor, Vikas Anand, Prem Sagar, Keshav Rana, Master Rajesh Valecha, Darshan etc in it.

The movie had Five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. In other words, this movie is lined up for being YIPPEED. I was looking to YIPPEE some other movie today, but I found that I had miscalculated and that movie stil had some other song yet to be covered. Then I looked for another movie and there too I was off by one song. So instead of losing more time, I decided to use this movie which is a low hanging fruit for me, viz I am certain that it is the final song of the movie and secondly its lyrics are readily available with me.

The lyrics of this song has been sent to me by Prakashchandra. The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Most songs of the movie were get-together/ party songs and this song is no exception. This “sentimental” song is lip synced by Zeenat Aman with other lead characters dutifully in attendance.

The songs of this movie were quite popular at that time and continue to be so. Personally I did not like the songs all that much and it is only recently that I have grudgingly started to like them. 🙂

With this song, “Dostaana” (1980) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

PS-Did anyone noticed that Laxmikant Pyarelal have composed for movies titled “Dost”, “Dosti” as well as “Dostaana” ? 🙂 And all these movies are YIPPEED in the blog. 🙂


Song-Kitna aasaan hai kehna bhool jaao (Dostaana)(1980) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao

kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa

Here is a song from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. It is written by Anjaan and Kalyanji Anandji are the music directors. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar.

This movie had great songs. All Eight of them. But a lousy story line (I can see a whole lot of Atulites chuckling right Rajaji?)
