“Majboori”(1954) also known as “Chhoti Bahan”(1954) was directed by Ram Daryani for Murli Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Balraj Sahani, Shyama, Gope, Kumar, Jeevan, Gulab, Pramila etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it which were penned by D N Madhok (7) and Pandit Gaafil (1).

Two songs have been covered in the past. Here is the third song from “Majboori”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The song is penned by D N Madhok. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

Only the audio of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

My post today (27 april 2018) should be read after reading what our dear Rajaji wrote last year in this post of his. In there he has poured a lot of love for the handsome actor- producer- (and lastly) a politician. He has spoken for all the fans of Vinod Khanna.

It is simply unbelievable that a year has passed since this most charming actor passed away. I remember how shocked I was on reading the news on our WhatsApp group that day. The news must have broken on the news channels about noon, around the time when Vividh Bharati – All India Radio’s commercial channel- starts their farmaishie filmy gaane etc. I used to have this habit of listening to this programme, with headphones on, as I commute around (I have stopped it since). Now that day, I was most happy with the content of the programme as every single song was from a Vinod Khanna movie and all of which I simply love. It occurred to me that those songs were being played as a tribute to the departed artist, only when I read all the WA messages on returning home. It was very very saddening. But then life is like that, and apparently Vinod was ill for sometime before his death. And as Rajaji has mentioned in his post last year, there were photographs being shared on social media of a rather sick Vinod, but I always thought that must be a look for some forthcoming movie. But that was not how it was to be.

I cannot forget the look on his face when he is listening to the recorded message from his wife. And then the pain on discovering that his wife has been unfaithful- in Gulzar’s song less wonder “Achanak”. Can remember how he smartly outwits Jeetendra’s father as villain in “Anokhi Ada”. Thinking of him singing “nainon mein darpan hain darpan mein koi dekoon jise subaha shaam” with Saira Banu on a cycle in “Aarop”.

After having made his debut in 1968 through Sunil Dutt’s “Man Ka Meet” and doing roles of secondary characters as Manoj Kumar’s friend in “Purab Aur Paschim”; Shammi Kapoor’s younger brother who loses track of ‘good and bad’ in “Jaan Pehchaan”; an inspector out to nab the smuggler (Rajesh Khanna) in “Sachha Jhootha”; and a few villainous characters we saw him as a confused educated unemployed man in “Mere Apne” which was followed by “Achanak” and a small blink and miss role in “Parichay”- all of which were made by Gulzar. No mention of Vinod Khanna is complete without thinking of the “Jabbar Singh” he played in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh”- he was unforgettable, he is unforgettable, we can’t forget him.

How can we forget him- when the radio plays “priye praneshwari” or “koi hota jisko apna” or “bambai se aaya mera dost” or “ruk jaana nahin tu kahi haarke” or “darbaar mein uparwaale ke” or “bhaagi re bhaagi re brijbala kanha ne pakda rang dala” or “lagi aaj saawan ki phir who jagi hai” and all the other famous and not so famous songs featuring him.

Though his pairing with Amitabh was always enjoyed we cannot forget that he paired well with Feroz Khan, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Sunil Dutt etc. As I was writing this post I wondered if he has never worked with Sanjeev Kumar and I saw that among yesterday’s posts is a song from “Chowkidaar” which had Sanjeev Kumar and VK is also there. The later year heroes Govinda, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan etc also co-starred with him playing an elder brother or father figure to them. He has done more than two movies each with most of the heroines of his era; be it Leena Chandavarkar, Bharati, Saira Banu, Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Parveen Babi, Reena Roy, Shaban Azmi, Rekha, Yogita Bali etc. and in his second innings Dimple Kapadia, Meenakshi, Madhuri, Madhavi, Jaya Prada, Sridevi etc. God, he had a good career and we were well entertained by him.

“Kudrat” was one of the movies where he co-starred Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini. It also had Raaj Kumar and Priya Rajvansh in important roles. It was directed by Chetan Anand and had rebirth as its theme. It had great songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Qateel Shifai and R D Burman was the music director. The song with this post is written by Majrooh and sung by Suresh Wadkar and Asha Bhonsle. It is a typical pahadi folk song performed by local dancers and as is the norm in Indian films the stars in the audience are drawn in to dance and shake a hip or leg with the performers. So, we can see Vinod Khanna starting the dance and trying to drag Hema Malini into it. This is followed by Aruna Irani (who plays the missing link between the two births of the main characters) Rajesh Khanna and Priya joining in. The song is meant to transport Hema into memories of her past birth and give her hints of link between Madho and Paro, Vinod catches Hema staring at Rajesh Khanna. And from here the story moves towards what the purpose of the movie is – getting justice for Madho and Paro (Rajesh and Hema) for the crime done to them by Raaj Kumar, father of Priya in this movie.

Thinking of the handsome Vinod Khanna today.

Thoda Sa Dil Laga Ke Dekh. . .

Film – ‘Musafirkhana’ from 1955, she plays the role Mary, the love interest of Frankie (Johnny Walker). Mary’s mother fancies another match for her daughter, and Frankie is contemplating suicide on that account. As it often happens in films, Mary breaks out into a song, trying to lift up Frankie’s dying spirits.

1958 – she plays the role of Nargis, the bosom friend of Sheela (Nutan), in this confused and comic scenario of mixed identities and true love – ‘Aakhiri Daao’. Funny to note that Nargis is her real name. And casting credit lists her assumed name. Always life is so interesting.

On to 1960 and ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’. Now she is Sheela, the naughty and playful nurse, who is reprimanded by the head nurse for putting on too much lipstick. Then it is ‘Half Ticket’ in 1962. As Lily, a partner in crime with Raja Babu (Pran) – the scene is simply hilarious, as she tries again and again to pat Vijay’s (Kishore Kumar) bottom – actually his back pocket, searching for an expensive diamond that Raja Babu has hidden there. There is a whole music and dance sequence, with a tape recorder keeping company, as she tries to extract the stolen goods from Vijay, without letting him know.

In 1965, she is Stella, the au pair companion to Rita (Nanda), in the musical romantic drama ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. 1970, moving into senior roles; the film is ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, and she herself is Rita, the British Indian wife of Sharma (Madan Puri), always with a smoking cigarette in her hand.

Fast forward forty years, to 2012 – she is very much on screen, this time playing the mother in law to Nargis (Daisy Irani) and grandmother of Farhad (Boman Irani) in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi’.

6th March earlier this year, she passed away in her sleep, just some weeks short of her 89th birthday. A memorable career for more than six decades, with quite over 200 films in her portfolio, and a number of very successful TV serials thrown in for good measure. Nargis Rabadi – she would have been 89 today.

Born this day in 1929, Nargis’ father was a priest in the Parsi temple. She was just 3 years old when her father passed away. Her mother raised her two daughters, working as a cook at the Parsi community festivals. After completing her studies, her elder sister got a job as an office secretary at Johnson & Johnson. So when Nargis completed her studies, she also came to Johnson & Johnson, working in the packaging department.

A close family friend and uncle, Chinuu Mama, was associated with the film industry. One thing led to another, and Nargis was introduced to Sheikh Mukhtar, who at that time was searching for a second lead lady for his film ‘Ustad Pedro’ (1951). At first, he was concerned that Nargis may not be able to handle the Hindi/Urdu dialogue, being a Parsi. But Nargis talked to him and the director Harish, and they were convinced she could do the role. That’s how she got her first break in films.

And with the first break, she also got a new name. The film’s director was concerned that her name might be confused with another rising star of those years – Nargis. And so he suggested her to change her name to Shammi. She did, and the name served her well for the remainder of her life. In later years, she became to be better known as Shammi Aunty.

Stringing through the cameos above, an interesting thing emerges. Her name is Nargis. She changes that to Shammi. In the 1958 film ‘Aakhiri Daao’, her name in credit appears as ‘Shammi’, and her screen name is Nargis. Then in 2012, her screen name is not clearly evident (in ‘Shirin Farhad. . .’), but then her daughter in law (Daisy Irani) has the screen name of Nargis. 🙂

Alongside ‘Ustad Pedro’, Harish was also directing another film at the same time – ‘Malhaar’ (produced by Mukesh, the singer). Impressed by her performance during the shooting of ‘Ustad Pedro’, he cast her as the heroine of ‘Malhaar’ opposite to another new face, Arjun. Although ‘Ustad Pedro’ did good business and was popular, ‘Malhaar’ failed to impress at the box office. The prospects of growing as a leading lady in the industry slowly receded.

But on the other hand, she became very much in demand for second lead female roles. Especially if the role demanded some comic goofiness, Shammi was quite the first name that the producers thought of. With little breaks here and there, she continued her cinematic journey, playing oh so many an endearing roles, leaving behind indelible memories. The wide eyed shocked look on her face as she opens the door to find her grandson (Boman Irani) standing there, as if coming out of a melee – is simply priceless. So many more of such moments flicker through the mind’s eye, as I pull together this piece today.

The song that I present today, however, is on a more somber note, the words expressing the very emotion that the heart wants to convey – “तुम चले॰॰॰ क्यों चले”. The film is ‘Awaara Ladki’ from 1967. This is an Asha Bhosle solo rendition that is picturized on a much younger Shammi. In the clip, we also see Sudesh Kumar – with a very lost look on his face, walking away from her, and then the song begins.

It is a peculiar situation – I am reminded of the one earlier song that I had posted from this film. The emotional mood of the song and the situation of that song is precisely the same – Sudesh Kumar + lost look + walking away, only the lady singing that song is different. It is Sheela Ramani singing “Arre Jaane Waale Nazar To Mila Ja”. Discovery of these two similar songs indicate some sort of a love triangle in the film’s story. Interesting – prompts me to watch this film.

This song is not listed in the Geet Kosh, although the print does indicate that there are more songs than the four listed. Music is by Dhaniram, and the uploader of this video clip, a dear friend Dharmesh from Rohtak, has indicated that the lyrics are from the pen of Kaif Irfani. So I will go by that information for now.

Bidding a good bye to a dear goofy artist, and to the long innings she has played on screen. Rest in peace, Nargis; or maybe I should say, wallow in mirth Shammi Aunty, wherever you are.

Adios and farewell.

 

Song – Tum Chale. . . Kyon Chale  (Awaara Ladki) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Kaif Irfani, MD – Dhaniram

This song is the 14300th song post in the blog.

Blog Day : 3567 Post No. : 14300

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part II-Chaand Pardesi
—————————-

If one thinks that posting “blog century” songs is quite a straight forward matter then think again. Though we have posted as many as 142 blog century posts, hardly any of them were easy picks. I had to think hard and long before finding songs befitting the occasion.

As the number of centuries mounted, we began to combine those blog centuries with other special occasions, viz. artist century, contributor century, artist anniversaries etc.

The post under discussion marks the 143rd century for the blog. In other words, it is the song post number 14300 for the blog.

I just mentioned that selecting “blog century” songs is not a trivial matter. Let me describe the thought process/ behind the scene activities that took place before I settled on this particular song as the “blog century” song.

First thing first. I had made up my mind that I would author this post. The reason was simple. I realised that our other contributors, including the usual century author Sudhir Jee were hard pressed for time these days. So I decided that I needed to write this post.

Many of our special posts including century posts have tended to appear towards the midnight, which may be prime time for TV but not for the blog. Blog prime time is day time on a weekday, so I made up my plan that this article should appear by morning today (24 april 2018) which happens to be tuesday.

When the day began, the tally of posts stood at 14297, so it meant that three posts needed to be posted, including two posts prior to the century post.

Did I have any song in mind for the “blog century” post ?

Yes, I had. It was a rare song, and quite a remarkable song. I had discovered this song a few months ago and I had noted down its lyrics as well. It was a long song and noting down the lyrics took a good amount of time. I had earmarked this song as a special song, to be covered as a “blog century” post or any such occasion.

This song had another qualification. I had begun my series of Rafi songs called (Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song. I had begun this series by aiming to cover those music directors who composed just one song with Rafi. I had decided that these songs would be special occasion songs in the blog. The first (and so far only) song in the series was composed by Arun Raghavan. I had combined this song to mark several special occasions, viz. that song was the 2800th Rafi song in the blog and the movie, which got introduced in the blog with the song was the 3800th movie covered in the blog.

My planned song that I had earmarked also fitted the same bill. It was also the only Rafi song composed by that music director.

With time, I realised that this song could be combined to mark another extremely rare occasion which few regulars may be able to guess. It could become the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog !

So I had silently made sure that the tally of Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had gradually inched upto the 499 mark in the blog. 🙂

So, when the time arrived to post the 14300th song article, I had every thing covered. Or that is what I thought.

When I began to search for this song in my hard disk, I was unable to locate it. I had noted down its lyrics spending several hours. I was sure it was there somewhere but where ? I managed to locate the video in my hard disk but not the lyrics.

OK, I will have to note the lyrics again, I thought.

When I began to listen to the song, I received another jolt. This song that I was remembering as a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had another voice in it. So my carefully laid plans got thrown out of the window immediately.

What to do now ? Now I needed to search for songs composed by other composers who worked with Rafi in just one song. This list is fortunately very much there in my excel sheet, and show I immediately began to search for Rafi songs composed by these one Rafi song composers.

The songs that I located were just solo Rafi songs, and they somehow did not sound worthy of being the blog century song. Nevertheless, one such Rafi song, after repeated listening began to grow upon me and I decided that this song was going to be the song for the occasion. So I noted down the lyrics of the song.

On just a whim, I decided to check up another solo Rafi song composer. And guess what ? This song was very much a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet !

When I listened to the song, I realised that it was an suitable replacement for the song that I had originally planned and which turned out to have more than two voices.

So, I got a song which was the only occasion when this music director got to utlise Rafi’s voice in his compositions. And this song happens to be the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog.

This song in question is from a forgotten movie called “Ban Maanush”(1979). It was directed by Kamram Khan for O K Films, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Padma Khanna, Kamran, Uma Dhawan, Mohan Choti, Sundar, Ratan Mala, Monal, Rajan Kapoor, Habeeb, Hamid Khan, Sawan, Chaachi, Sabir, Ramjanam singh, Danny Junior (new discovery), Jagdep (special appearance) etc in it.

“Ban Maanush”(1979) had three songs in it. This song under discussion is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. So “Ban Maanush”(1979) makes its debut with this rare and special song.

The video of this song is very much available. One can see that the song is picturised as a qawwaali song where a gentleman and a lady assisted by their respective teams of chorus sing this song.

Good qawwaali’s in Hindi movies always have great lyrics in them. And this qawwaali is no exception. Farooque Kaiser is done very well in penning the lyrics of this song. Music is composed by Chaand Pardesi.

Qawwaali is one genre of song where picturisation plays as important a role as the lyrics is savouring and enjoying the song. The saying “the song is better heard than seen” does not apply to qawwaalis.

Qawwaalis were normally seen in muslim social movies. In these movies, qaawwaali are one occasion where the two genders are seen interacting with each other in full public view. It is one occasion where the two genders openly use amorous terms and the public (otherwise quite conservative) do not mind. I think this kind of qawwaalis have been invented in Hindi movies and I do not think amir Khusro, the creator of Qawwaali might have imagined that the qawaalis would serve this pupropse, viz helping the two genders (who otherwise remain segregated) to interact with each other and express their feelings with each other.

To help avoid embarrassment that may result if one a male and a female were to sing the song, the lead singers are supported by friends of the same gender to lend moral support by singing in chorus.

Another thing that one notices in these filmy qawwaalis are that the lyrics of this songs are quite liberal and broadminded and not at all conservative and narrow minded. One is readily reminded of the epic qawwaali of “Barsaat Ki Raat”(1960) that covers lots and lots of topics viz. Krishna, Radha, Meera, Buddha, Maseeh etc.

The qawwaali under consideration is a nice “expression of love” genre of qawwaali. I can see that Padma Khanna lip syncs in Asha Bhonsle’s song, but I am unable to identify the gentleman who lip syncs in Rafi’s voice.

This qawwaali is a forgotten gem from my college days which I had never heard before.

In summary, here are the salient features of this song post:-

1. This song is the only Rafi song that music director Chaand Pardesi composed in his career. And what a superb song it is. This article is our way of honouring the one Rafi song music director Chaand Pardesi.

2. This song is the 500th duet song sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. What to say about this feat. These two legends have easily sung the most number of duets songs ever. I have not yet counted the number of duets sung by them, but I have read an estimate this puts this figure to over 800 ! The second most prolific duet singing pair happens to be Rafi-Lata pair. They are a “distant” second with “just” 400 plus duets. 🙂

3. This song is the 14300th song of the blog. The previous blog century was achieved on 23 march 2018. So this century has taken 32 days.

There was a time when we used to clock centuries in 16 days. We may have slowed down, and in the course of this century we even had a dot day, but at least the musical bandwagon is still on the move. And this matters a lot.

We are on the verge of several landmarks in addition to the usual blog century landmarks. Lots of artists are closing in to their century and multiple century marks. Even a regular contributor is stuck on 199 (hint ! hint ! 🙂 ). So there are lots of exciting and interesting events ahead of us.

When one considers this series (pal do pal ka saath), this was only the second episode. There are more music directors with justone Rafi song to their credit. Their time would also come and we will honour them too with similar special write ups.

As for now, I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support for nearly ten years. That reminds me, we are on the verge of completing ten years in another four months. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue to roll on and on and in the process we will find ourselves acquainted with lots and lots of great musical gems, and some of them for the first time.

This special song may well be the first time many of our music lovers will get to listen to this song. Here is this wonderful song from the golden era of HFM. Enjoy !

ishq waale wafa nahin karte
daawe karte hain khoob badh chadhh kar
jab nibhaane ki baat aati hai
bhool jaate hain pyaar ye dilbar

bhool jaate hain pyar ye dilbar
bhool jaate hain pyar ye dilbar

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
husn waale daga nahin karte
ye hamaara yakeen hain dilbar
jinke baalon mein phool khilte hain
ho nahin sakte unke dil patthar
ho nahin sakte unke dil patthar
ho nahin sakte unke dil patthar

aa aa aa aa aa
ae mere dard e jigar
itni taareef na kar
naaz itne na uthha
humko sar pe na bithha
humko maaloom hai sab
teri chahat ka sabab
dard ye tune diya
pyaar to humne kiya

pyaar to humne kiya
pyaar to humne kiya

aaj phir tera pyar maanga hai
ik zara sa karar maanga hai
phir wahi intzaar maanga hai
phir tera etbar manga hai
dard ka razdaar maanga hai
dil ka aayina daar manga hain
jinko jannat ka shauk hai maangen aen aen
humne allaah se yaar manga hai
humne allaah se yaar maanga hain
humne allah se yaar maanga hai

sab kuch khuda se maang liya
uthte nahi hain, mere haath is dua ke baad
humne allah se yaar maanga hai
humne allah se yaar maanga hai

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
duaayen mangne se
chhaanv zulfon ki nahin milti
mohabbat zindagi ki sabse
mushqil aazmaayish hain
tadap hai dard hai aansu hain
ruswaai bhi hai ismein
magar ye aazma lene ke
kaabil aazmaayish hai

ye dil chaahe toote
padenge hum na jhoothhe
tumhare liye bekaraar honge
ye dil chaahe toote
padenge hum na jhhoothhe
tumhaare liye bekarar honge

ye dil chahe toote
padenge hum na jhhoothhe
tumhaare liye bekraar honge
uthhaaye maine naina

Missing Films of 1960s – 65
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Back to hunting in the 1960s once again. ‘Mr Murder’ from 1969 is as rare and obscure as one can think of. This very sweet melody is already published on YouTube, only partially though. I am uploading the more complete version today.

The film ‘Mr Murder’ is produced under the banner of Bundelkhand Films, Bombay and is directed by NA Ansari. The main star cast is listed as Naqi Jahan, Krishan Mehta, Ansari, Chand Usmani, and Rajan Kapoor.

The five songs in this film have been composed by the music director duo of Sonik Omi. Sonik Omi had made their debut as a team three years earlier in 1966, with the musically successful ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’  ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ (1966). After that, this film in 1969 is just their fifth outing. The names of Shakeel Badayuni and Qamar Jalaalabaadi are listed as songwriters for this film. This song is written by Shakeel Sb.

The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. A very sweet song that should not have become as unknown as it has become. Listen and enjoy.

[Ed Note: Sonik Omi’s first film is ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ and not ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’. The correction has been made in the article. Thanks to Satyajit ji for catching the error.]

Song – Hum To Dil Jaan Dono Hi Kho Baithe  (Mr Murder) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Sonik Omi

Lyrics

hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

ye baharon ka mausam
ye thandi hawa
tujh se pehle mazaa in mein
kuchh bhi na tha
ye baharon ka mausam
ye thandi hawa
tujh se pehle mazaa in mein
kuchh bhi na tha
aaj har cheez mein
ik naya rang hai
pyaar ka dhang hai
tu mere sang hai
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

tum mujhe is tarah
mere dilbar miley
jaise ik pyaase panchhi ko saagar miley
tum mujhe is tarah
mere dilbar miley
jaise ik pyaase panchhi ko saagar miley
tum ko paaya to
dil ko khushi mil gayi
zindagi mil gayi
bekhudi mil gayi
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

ये बहारों का मौसम
ये ठंडी हवा
तुझसे पहले मज़ा इन में
कुछ भी ना था
ये बहारों का मौसम
ये ठंडी हवा
तुझसे पहले मज़ा इन में
कुछ भी ना था
आज हर चीज़ में
इक नया रंग है
प्यार का ढंग है
तू मेरे संग है
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

तुम मुझे इस तरह
मेरे दिलबर मिले
जैसे इक प्यासे पंछी को सागर मिले
तुम मुझे इस तरह
मेरे दिलबर मिले
जैसे इक प्यासे पंछी को सागर मिले
तुम को पाया तो
दिल को खुशी मिल गई
ज़िंदगी मिल गई
बेखुदी मिल गई
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

Here is the fifth and final song from “Murder in Circus”(1971) to appear in the blog. According to HFGK, the song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Khanna, though I can only detect Asha Bhonsle’s song. Perhaps Usha Khanna sings in chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is picturised as a Villain’s den song on two main dancers and other dancers. I am unable to identify the two main dancers. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identigy them.

With this song, “Murder in Circus”(1971) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
