“Grihlaxmi”(1959) was produced and directed by Raman V Desai for Bombay Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Shahu Modak, Pandhari Bai, Lalita Pawar, Kumari Nazar, Rooplaxmi, Miss Kala, Indira Bansal, Ramavtaar, Raj, Umakant, Pravin Paul, Devendra, Suryakant Shukla, Polson, Bhairav, Vipin Gupta etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Grihlaxmi”(1959) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be about a lady missing her beloved, or many be it is a Lord Krishn bhajan.I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Today (4 August 2020) is the 91st birth anniversary of Kishore Kumar (4 August 1929- 13 october 1987). And incidentally, today is the 4400th day for the blog !

Three articles from three regulars have already appeared on the blog today. It is interesting to note that all the three regulars decided to discuss three songs from the decade of 1980s.

The golden era of HFM, which began in 1949, ended in 1980. People who lived through the golden era can notice a palpable lack of overall quality in HFM after 1980. There were quite a few reasons for that. I have given this matter some thought and I have come up with some interesting observations. I will use those observations some other trime in some other article. Here I will just mention it in brief that the golden era of HFM becan when Indian classical base (melody based) was wedded with western classical base (symphony based). This mariage, which gave us the best of both the worlds, got dissolved in 1980. Western symphony was replaced by western caacophony while lyrics of the songs were dispensed with.

Another reason was gradual demise of the doyens of HFM maestroes. Shailendra (1966), Roshan (1968), Shakeel Badayuni (1970), Jaikishan (1971), Geeta Dutt (1972), Madan Mohan , Vasant Desai, S D Burman (all 1975), Mukesh (1976) and Rafi (1980) left the scene one after the other creating big voids. With the demise of Rafi on 31 july 1980, the HFM golden era literally ended.

If we still have a few songs worth listening to in 1980s, they they are invariably the creations of those who becan their careers during the golden era and they had the musical wherewithals to create quality music. It was the old guard who kept creating good music in 1980s.

One will notice that majority of memorable songs of 1980s were sung by old guard, viz Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. This state of affairs continued till late 1980s when Kishore Kumar died in 1987. R D Burman, who was sticking to Kishore Kumar confided in Amit Kumar that his music was unlikely to remain the same with the absence of Kishore Kumar.

Ironically, the music director who was the most responsible for the demise of HFM golden era, viz Bappi Lahiri, was also the music director who created the most number of memorable songs post 1980s. And no pruizes for guessing who were the singers. When Bappi Lahiri was bnot creating forgettable (but saleable) disco numbers, he was also creating golden era quality songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Unlike the golden era hit songs, these 1980s era songs were light on lyrics, making them chaalu songs. Still, these songs became popular because the singers could carry off these songs with inane lyrics with aplomb.

There are several Bappi Lahiri chaalu songs that Kishore Kumar turned into timeless classics. Some examples are movies like “Namakhalaal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984), “Aaj Ka Arjun”(1990). Incidentally , all these songs had Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles.

Then there were Jeetendra starrers where the lyrics were of even more “Chaalu” variery. But Kishore Kumar turned even those songs into classics. In these songs he often had the company of Asha Bhonsle, who could be regarded as his female version among playback singers, as far as singing versatility was concerned.

As a tribute to Kishore Kumar, here is the title song of “Tohfa”(1984). This movie was produced by D Ramanaidu and directed by K Raghvendra Rao for Suresh Productions, Madras. This archtypical Madrasi movie (Hindi remake) of 1980s had Jeetendra, JayaPrada, Sridevi, Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Mohan Choti, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Jayshree T, Master Rinku etc in it, with friendly appearance by Asrani.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Jayaprada and Jeetendra. They are seen prancing, with Saris of all varieties forming the background as well as the prop. Quite an imaginative picturisation.

And as observed earlier, the song on its own is nothing much to write home about. Still, this is one of those songs that had stood the test of time and it is still regarded as one of the popular songs of its era. Much of the credit for this has to go to the singers, viz Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Just like R D Burman’s music suffered after the demise of Kishore Kumar, bappi Lahiri’s music too failed to reach the same heights in the absence of Kishore Kumar’s vocals. It shows the calibre of Kishore Kumar’s singing abilities who with his Midas touch could convert a seemingly mediocre song into a timeless classic.

Personally, I found the music of 1980s bearably enjoyable, mainly because of songs like this. And unsurprisingly, most such songs had the voice of Kishore Kumar in them.

Enjoy this song. This song demostrates that one can act silly and it can be still enjoyable and fun for all concerned, provided you have the calibre to carry it off.

Blog Day :

Today (3 august 2020) happens to be the festival of Raakhi. Seeing that we are in the grips of a pandemic, most festivals in India are coming and going without much celebration. Things are not what they used to be till last year. Hopefully, we will be able to overcome this pandemic and will be able to celebrate all festivals and all other occasions of get together with the same kind of impunity that was taken for granted till a few months ago.

When the blog began on 19 July 2008, it had very small traffic. The blog used to get less than 50 hits daily. I was counting on the Raakhi festival day to see record traffic. The Raakhi festival that year fell on 16 august. I knew what song to cover on the occasion. It was the iconic raakhi song, bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana (Chhoti Bahan)(1959). That day, the blog saw a record breaking 198 visits ! I walked on cloud nine for several days after that. 🙂

Today (3 august 2020) is the festival of Raakhi again. This time I had not even decided upon the raakhi song. But I can always count of Prakashchandra. He keeps sending (and resending) songs for all important occasion. So I am never short of songs to chose from, eve after I have covered most well known songs for such occasions. I have covered all well known Raakhi songs during last 12 Raakhi festival occasions still Prakashchandra has been able to send me many more songs from the occasions.

Today, I have chosen a less known song from a less known movie. The movie is “Farishta”(1968), a B grade movie under the banner of Taj Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Dev Kumar, Nivedita, Asha Nadkarni, Jagirdar, Jagdish Raj, Sudhir, Master Shahid etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

This song is suung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I heard this song for the first time today, and it is quite a catchy song to listen to. Definitely a forgotten gem, that deserved to be better known among music lovers.

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


Song-Bhaiyya mere pyaare raakhi bandhaao bhaiyya (Farishta)(1968) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Dattaram

Hullo Atuldom

31st July, was that date in the monsoon of 1980, when the favourite singer of an entire generation left this world without any warning. There are anecdotes about the happenings of that date which keep surfacing now and then. We have heard that he was recording for Laxmikant -Pyarelal that day, a duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and was asked to stay back to record a songlet (if there is such a word) which was to play at the end of the movie and the words of that:

Tere aane ki aas hai dost
shaam phir kyun udhaas hai dost
mehki mehki phiza yeh kehti hain
tu kahin aas paas hai dost
tu kahin aas paas hain dost

seem like written for remembering this legend called Mohammad Rafi.

There is not a single day when a song played over the air-waves or on TV don’t remind us of his wonderful voice. There is not a single day when we don’t hum or sing a song that was a classic because he had sung it. There may be many who try to sing like him but God made only one Mohammad Rafi. Has anyone tried singing “kya hua tera waada, woh kasam woh iraada” in one breath, it is not easy. But when we hear Rafisaab render it, it feels like cakewalk. I will not even throw a challenge to sing “naache mann mora magan dhikna dhik dhik”. But I will definitely ask a Rafi clone to sing “yahoo, chahe koi mujhe junglee kahe” and follow it up with “champi tel maalish”. Both are fun songs abut they need a full-throated voice and range from lower to higher notes. I am not even going to list his soulful songs here; that would be really long and every single one as much on my personal playlist as the ones that I have mentioned here.

I would love to know how he modulated his voice to suit the on-screen actor. He was good for a Mehmood and Rajendra Kumar and sounded different in the same film. He sang for Guru Dutt and Johnny Walker and we could visualize the difference in the characters. No more examples as I have always said, I am not qualified or knowledgeable enough to comment or write about legends.

But I will definitely quote an Amitabh Bachchan song which said:

na phankaar tujh sa tere baad aaya, Mohammad Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya

Getting directly to today’s song. As

rasm e duniyaa bhi hai
maukaa bhi hai
dastoor bhi hai

I will just give the details of the song which is from the 1981 release “Ham Se Badhkar Kaun”. We have thus far, only one song from this movie which is this one. That means we haven’t visited this movie in the last nine years. Atulji has given the gist of this movie in that post in a single line- ‘run of the mill’. I will just add that it also relied on the lost-and-found theme. Today’s duet is Asha Bhonsle with Mohd.Rafi (duet number 533) performed on-screen by Mithun, Ranjeeta, Bhagwan Dada and chorus.

dil churaake chala woh deewaana
haa aa dekho logon yeh kaisa zamana

Screenplay is the first stage when a film is said to be born on paper. A screenplay writer translates the story/script from its literary form to an audio-visual presentation incorporating the ideas of the directors as to how each character is to be presented, the mood of the scenes, the surrounding environments, the stance of dialogue deliveries, the camera angles, lighting etc. Some screenplay writers also incorporate the dialogues. Directors like Satyajit Ray would write the screenplay in sketch form, visually presenting the scenes in each sheet of paper, something like what we used to see RK Laxman’s ‘You Said It’ in newspapers. In other words, screenplay is a complete document, representing a film in a paper format.

In a professional set-up, a director of the film would like to have with him a bound copy of the screenplay, a copy of which he would also handed over to each one of main actors, cinematographer, art director, sound engineer, choreographer, lyricists, music directors etc. before the film’s shooting commences. Some of the directors like Bimal Roy used to follow the system (as revealed by Dilip Kumar in an interview) while directors like Guru Dutt did not give much importance to this system as quite often, he used to make changes in the screenplay at the spur of the moment  while shooting (as revealed by Abrar Alvi in his book, ‘Ten Years With Guru Dutt’). In our office parlance, we can call screenplay as a manual of instructions for all those who are closely associated with the making of a particular film.

From the above description, it is apparent as to how important the role of screenplay writers have in the making of films. Unfortunately, most of the screenplay writers are ‘faceless’ in the sense that their faces seldom appear on the film magazines. It was Salim-Javed, the duo who, as a story, screenplay and dialogue writer, attained the status of stars during 1970s and early 80s and their faces became familiar to most of the cinema-lovers.

I am discussing in this article, one of the most prominent ‘faceless’ screenplay writers, an introvert who kept a low profile despite writing screenplays for many Hindi films for over 3 decades, which became popular. Some of his works attained the classic status such as ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Devdas’ (1955), ‘Sujata’ (1959), ‘Bandini’ (1963), ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966), ‘Abhiman’ (1971). He is the Bengali novelist and short-story writer, dancer, theatre actor and the director, Nabendu Ghosh who became a screenplay writer by default.

I came to know about Nabendu Ghosh for the first time about 3 years back when I was going through a book ‘Gulzar in Conversations with Nasreen Muni Kabir’ and Gulzar’s many interviews on the newspapers. In the book and the interviews, Gulzar gave credit to Nabendu Ghosh in shaping his career as a screenplay writer. I became interested in knowing him in details only when I came to know that he had made a statement as early as in 1945 that if at all he joined the film industry, it would be only under Bimal Roy. I found this statement surprising because in Bengali literary circle, he had already attained the status of a star writer due to popularity of his novels and short stories.

During the past few days, I have read books and interviews on Nabendu Ghosh given by his colleagues in the film industry, his own interview on Vividh Bharati and the extracts from his Bengali autobiography, ‘Eka Naukar Yatri’ (‘Traveler of the Lonely Boat’) translated in English by his daughter, Ratnottama Sengupta. On the basis of these sources, I have written his profile incorporating the important events in his life which is given below:

Nabendu Bhushan Ghosh (27/03/1916 – 15/12/2007) was born in Dhaka where he did his early schooling. The family shifted to Patna when his father, an advocate started practicing at the Patna High Court. Nabendu continued his secondary school in Patna and continued his college there completing MA in English literature. During his Patna days, Nabendu joined a local theatre group where he acted, mostly in the female role. He also learnt dancing at Uday Shankar’s Almora Cultural Centre.

Nabendu got a job in DIG’s office in Patna. However, during Quit India Movement, he wrote articles against the British rules. For this, he got warning from his sympathetic superiors from the office not to indulge in writing anti-British articles. Instead of heeding their advice, he preferred to resign from the job and shifted to Kolkata in 1944 where his life as a novelist and short story writers began. By the end of 1940s, Nabendu had became a star writer as his novels and short stories were very popular. During this period, he had written stories depicting almost every aspects of life in Bengal – the famine, the tram, the strike, the rationing, communal violence, partitions victims etc.

On a visit to Rajshahi (now in Bangla Desh) sometime in 1945, he watched a Bangla film ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1945) in a theatre. The film had influenced him so much that he took a vow that if he ever become a writer for the films, it would be for Bimal Roy, the director of the film. Probably, this was more like an emotional reaction to the film rather than his serious intention at that time. After a couple of years, Nabendu had a chance meeting with Bimal Roy in Kolkata who was impressed with writings. But it was not until 1951 when Ashok Kumar invited Bimal Roy to direct the film ‘Maa’ (1952) that Bimal Roy thought of taking Nabendu along with him.

Both for Bimal Roy and Nabendu Ghosh, the migration to Mumbai was not by choice but because of the compelling circumstances. With the creation of East Pakistan (now Bangla Desh), the markets for Bangla films and the Bangla novels and short stories had considerably dwindled thanks to the then East Pakistan Government’s policy of suppressing Bangla language in favour of Urdu. What was thought to be a temporary assignment in Mumbai in 1951 became a long creative association between Bimal Roy and Nabendu Ghosh from 1951 to 1966 as a screenplay writer in 9 films besides doing cameo roles in ‘Do Bhiga Zameen’ (1953) and ‘Sujata’ (1959).

During his 3 decades of association with Hindi films, Nabendu Ghosh wrote screenplay for a little over 30 films which included apart from Bimal Roy’s films mentioned above, films like ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Baadbaan’ (1954), ‘Milap’ (1955), ‘Detective’ (1958), ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Laal Pathar’ (1971), ‘Abhiman’ (1973), “Pratigya’ (1975), ‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’ (1978), ‘Krodhi’ (1981) etc. He also directed ‘Trishagni’ (1988) which gave him the National Film Award for the best debut director. Sometime in the middle of his filmy career, he had directed ‘Doctor Babu‘ (based on Phanishwarnath Renu’s story, ‘Maila Aanchal’) with Dharmendra and Jaya Bahaduri in the lead roles and RD Burman as the music director. When 70% of the film was canned, the producer of the film died leaving the film unfinished.

In 1995, he directed a television serial for Doordarshan, ‘Anmol Moti’ on Ashok Kumar. He directed Children Film Society’s ‘Netraheen Sakshi’ and for Ministry of Health, the film ‘Ladkiyaan’ (1997). He was a visiting faculty at FTII and conducted workshops on screenplay writing during 1967 to 1980. During his life time, Nabendu wrote 26 Bengali novels, 18 collections of Bengali short stories and his only English book – ‘Ashok Kumar – His Life and Times’.

Nabendu Ghosh passed away in Kolkata on December 15, 2007 at a ripe age of 91. Nabendu Ghosh’s last novel, ‘Kadam Kadam’ based on the experiences of character actor, Nazir Hussain in INA, was released during his birth centenary year 2016.

If we go through the list of the films for which Nabendu Ghosh wrote screenplays, it would be observed that most of the films were based on stories from literature. His screenplay writings were so powerful that even in respect of women displayed in the films as fallen from the grace from the eyes of the society, the cine audience loved those characters like Chandramukhi in ‘Devdas’ (1955), Kalyani in ‘Bandini’ (1963), Bijli in ‘Chanda Aur Bijli’ (1965), Hirabai in ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) and Chandni in ‘Sharafat’ (1970). Raj Kapoor had said after the release of ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) that Nabendu Ghosh’s screenplay brought in him the character of  ‘Hiraman’ more than that of Raj Kapoor.

Ratnottama Sengupta, the daughter of Nabendu Ghosh directed one-hour documentary film, ‘And They Made Classic Films’ on the bonding between Bimal Roy and her father based on his interviews. The film was shown at 23rd Kolkata International Film Festival, 2017. One of the interesting anecdotes which Ratnottama Sengupta narrated from the documentary film is –

“On the first day of shoot of ‘Devdas’ (1955), Dilip Kumar was in a tense mood walking up and down on the studio floor. When Nabendu Ghosh asked the reason, Dilip Kumar said that all three are sitting on his shoulders, referring to Pramathesh Barua who directed ‘Devdas’ (1935), KL Saigal who acted in it and Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay who wrote the novel. She said that Nabendu Ghosh buried all three ghosts and painted a fresh picture of Devdas in his screen-play in such a way that even today when we talk of Devads, we think of Dilip Kumar.” [Quoted in an article by Anuj Kumar in ‘The Hindu’, January 5, 2018).

There were some pitfalls in Nabendu Ghosh’s filmy career also. He never got credit for writing screenplay for the film ‘Madhumati’ (1958). In fact, there is no mention of screenplay writer in the credit title of the film. When Guru Dutt selected one of his stories and wanted him to write screenplay for ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) on his story, Nabendu Ghosh declined by saying that he was busy with the screenplay of ‘Sujata’. He gave his story to Guru Dutt requesting him to get the screenplay written by someone else. When the film was released, Nabendu Ghosh was surprised to note that he was not credited in the film as a story writer while Abrar Alvi was duly credited as screenplay and dialogue writer.

‘Baadbaan’ (1954) for which Nabendu Ghosh wrote the screen-play, is regarded as a classic film though the film did not fare well at the box office. Vijay Anand who claimed in an interview at Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute, Kolkata in 2003 that he had seen this film 10 times. He regards it as a piece of literature appearing on the screen. It was more of a screenplay writer’s triumph than the director.

I am presenting a song “Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko” from ‘Baadbaan’ (1954) which is rendered by Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Indeevar which is set to music by Timir Baran-S K Pal. In this song, Asha Bhosle seems to be trying to sing like Lata Mangeshkar, that too the way Lata has sung in ‘Anarkali’ (1953). Of course, this is my hunch.

Song – Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko (Baadbaan) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Timir Baran, SK Pal

Lyrics

thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahoon to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahoon to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor
 
beh jaaye na teri duniya
aansoo na bahaaungi main
beh jaaye na teri duniya
aansoo na bahaaungi main
meri haaye na tujhko jalaa de
tere paas na aaungi main
mujhe dekhe na teri nazren
dekhe na teri nazren
ho jaaun itni door
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor
 
baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
taqdeer ke bair kiya hai
taqdeer se lad loongi main
main tod chalun
main tod chalun ek pal mein
tod chalun ek pal mein
duniya ka har dastoor
magar tere pyar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoom majboor

thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahun to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor

That leaves us only one movie i.e. ‘Khaandaan-1965’ which is still eligible to be considered for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’.

Though I am regularly browsing the blog, I failed to notice that three songs of this movie ‘Khaandaan-1965’ were yet to be covered. This discovery came as a big surprise for me. I had a ‘bigger’ ‘surprise’ waiting for me, But they will be discussed some other time. For the time being, we will come directly to the today’s song and post.

‘Khaandaan-1965’ or ‘Khandan-1965’ was directed by A. Bhim Singh for ‘Vasu Films, Madras’. S. Ramanathan was the associate director of this movie and A. Hussain was his assistant. This movie was produced by Vasu Menon.

Story of this movie was written by M.S. Solaimalai and dialogues were written by Rajinder Krishan who also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

A. Bhim Singh who was the director of the movie wrote the screenplay of this movie and he was also the editing supervisor of this movie. A. Pauldoraisingam was the editor of this movie.

This movie had eight songs written by Rajinder Krishan and music was composed by Ravi. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, the following five songs from “Khaandaan-1965” have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri pooja tumhi devtaa ho 28.07.2010

Today’s song is the sixth song from this movie being presented on the blog. This enjoyable ‘teasing’ song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle and picturised on Sunil Dutt and Nutan in a ‘village fair’ or ‘mela’ set up where many other artists can also be seen participating in the picturization of this song.

Today, 25th July is the 24th anniversary of the passing away of GS Kohli, one of the most talented musician and music director in Hindi cinema’s Golden age.

Gursharan Singh Kohli was born in 1928. As a child and young man, he learnt to play dholak and many other musical instruments. He was just 24 years when he started working with the famous music director OP Nayar, as his assistant. He continued to be Nayar Sb’s assistant music director till the end of 1960s, even though he had started his own career as an independent music director with the film ‘Lambe Haath’ in 1960.

He went on to create wonderful music for films like ‘Shikari’ (1963), ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ (1965) and ‘Namaste ji’ (also 1965). Despite scoring some of the most popular hit songs of the 1960s, his career remained confined to B and C grade cinema. His last film as an independent music director was ‘Jaalsaaz’ in 1969.

Today we present this enchanting cabaret song from the 1966 film ‘Do Matwaale’. The song is penned by Farooq Qaiser and is sung by Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Helen, as a club dance song, in the inimitable way that only Helen can perform. Present in the scene also we can see the actress Malika, and two Sikh gentlemen, who actually are Randhawa and Madan Puri in disguise.

The lyrics of this song were sent in by Prakashchandra ji.

Another very enamoring dance number by Helen, who performs to the music of GS Kohli.

Song – Hata De Jaam Nazar Se Nazar Mila Saaqi  (Do Matwaale) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Farooq Qaiser, MD – GS Kohli

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is sure to get a “How Come?” reaction from all concerned, even Atulji and Sudhirji will probably include it in the category of “How come this song was not posted earlier?” and “How did I forget to post this song earlier?”. Also I know we have fans of today’s song among the followers of the blog who will say “How did we miss it in all these 12 years of the blog?” I, who regularly try and send a song for the birthday and anniversary of the main actor in this song, also kept putting it off for God Knows what occasion!!!

But better late than never. And here is an all-time popular song.

There are hundreds of multi-version songs in filmdom. Usually we will have the same song sung as happy and sad, male- female, family reunion versions etc. Today’s is a hatke (different) multi-version song. It cannot be categorized as Happy-Sad or Male -female versions. In both versions of this song all the characters involved lip-sync. There are two couples, hence four singers. And finally, the mood of the songs are “roothna-manaana” and/or “teasing song”. I won’t call it eve-teasing as one song has the girls teasing the guys. There is equality here. 😉
The first version (in the movie) happens when the boys -Chuttan and Puttan land up accidentally in the house of Shaila (Aruna Irani) and she walks in, with her friend Poonam (Anjana -she was not yet Anjaana Mumtaz then). The girls have the upper hand in this version as they threaten the boys of handing them over to her father (Jeevan) or Poonam’s inspector brother (Chandrashekar). The song closes with the girls tying up the boys.

The second one is in Mahabaleswar where the boys are in hiding from their strict father (Ashok Kumar). I must mention here that I was reminded of this movie because of Guruji’s recent post where he mentioned the actress who played the mother character to Chuttan (Mehmood) and Puttan (Vinod Mehra). This movie “Do Phool” was a 1973 release which was directed by S. Ramanathan, a remake of the Tamil “Anubavi Raja Anubavi”. The movie had four songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which were set to music by R D Burman. Only one song from this movie Muthukodi kawaadi hadaa is present on the blog, posted way back in 2009.

Here is the next one today, which also happens to be Mehmood’s 16th anniversary. It is in the vocals of Asha, Usha, Kishore and Mehmood.
