Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati” (1969) was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappie Sonie with songs written by Rajinder Krishan and composed by Kalyanji Anandji. It had a cast of Babita, Shashi Kapoor, Om Prakash, Rajendranath, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Helen Hari Shivdasani etc.

The story was a straight forward one of a rich girl (Babita) falling in love with Prem Chopra who is after her wealth (as usual). Pritam (Shashi Kapoor) falls in love with this girl and tries to woo her away from her chosen person and has the approval of her rich uncle (Om Prakash) and is eventually successful. Then there is a minor twist regarding the birth mother foster mother etc. That is the synopsis. The movie had 7 songs of which the blog has 6 as under:-

A man is always happy when he is in his comfort zone. I too feel at home and comfortable when I am dealing with films of the Vintage Era, i.e. 30’s to 50’s. There comes a feeling of togetherness, familiarity and ease of communication. I am sure the same must be the case of those who write on films of the recent past, i.e. of the period 70’s to the present. Change the position and one feels awkward, uncomfortable and not so well. This is not a statement about any period, but I am trying to paint a picture, how people are happy in the surroundings which are known,familiar and about which one has the knowledge. By the way, I have written many posts on films from the 70s to as late as 2018 also.

Maybe this is due to the age difference, but I am certainly not one who detests whatever is new – may it be a Cinema, a song or social environment. Change is mandatory, inevitable, unavoidable and a reality. Wisdom is in accepting what is changed and then in finding points of similarity and likeability in the new changes. Changes are effected to conform to present needs, visions and compatibility towards outside influences beyond our control.

Changes are the precursors of Evolution. From Fish to Humans is a result of changes which took place in thousands of years. One who says changes are bad, is saying that remaining as Monkeys was better ! However, changing or accepting the changes does not put a stamp on the uselessness of the older things. It only means that those things were good in those times and conditions.

Take the simple example of NFS (Non Film Songs) v/s Film songs. NFS were popular from the 30’s to the 50’s. After that NFS disappeared perceptibly and today only Film songs are there. Why did this happen ? If you listen to most of the NFS, they were slow,soft, melodious, soulful but they made you illusioned. That was when the world was trying slowly to come out of the effects of World Wars. Several countries were becoming independent. The world started brimming with enthusiasm,hopes and visions of a brighter future. Lilting tunes and newer musical instruments helped upping the positive vibes, so necessary to build up a new World. Film songs filled this need and slowly the slow, soft and soulful NFS disappeared. Just compare the film songs of the 40’s, 50’s and today’s film songs. See the difference. Today we feel old music was better, but that is because of Nostalgia – memories attached to those songs, films and people. It was good for those days. Today this is good.

When one talks of NFS, can one forget Jagmohan ? Those were the days when NFS by Jagmohan, Juthika Roy, Pankaj Mullik, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood and many more private singers shook the music world and their records sold by thousands. Although Jagmohan Sursagar ( 6-9-1918 to 4-9-2003) sang 33 songs in 19 Hindi films, he gave music to only 1 Hindi film in his career. Film Sardar-55 was produced and directed by Gyan Mukherji (30-9-1909 to 13-11-1956). He directed only 7 full films and 2 half films. Film Madhu-59 and Sitaron se aage-58 were done half when he died suddenly. Madhu-59 was completed by S.Mukherji and Sitaron se aage-58 was completed by Satyen Bose. Gyaqn Mukherji directed films only in which Ashok Kumar was Hero( same way, his brother Shankar Mukherji directed films of only Dev Anand-except Jhumroo-61 of Kishore kumar)

There were 9 songs in the film originally, however one song by Lata was removed from the film later. Songs were written by Udhav Kumar(5), Kaif Irfani(3) and Vrajendra Gaud(1). When you listen to these songs, you can’t believe Jagmohan could give such variety in film music. One song, sung by himself, was based on Fox Trot music-a novelty in films of that period. I feel sorry that Jagmohan was not used by the Hindi film industry as a MD for more films. We surely missed some good music because of that.

The cast of the film was Ashok Kumar, Bina Rai, Nigar Sultana, Jagdish Sethi, Rama Shukul (probably his last film), Tiwari and many others.Nigar Sultana was one of the busiest artistes in the 50’s. Out of her total 52 films, she worked in 32 films from 1950 to 1960. She was also famous for her affairs with several film artistes. The famous writer journalist ‘ Manto’ has written quite a juicy account of it in his book.

Nigar Sultana (21 June 1932 – 21 April 2000) . She appeared in Aag (1948), Patanga (1949), Sheesh Mahal (1950), Mirza Ghalib (1954), Yahudi (1958), Do Kaliyaan (1968), etc. but she is most notably remembered for playing the role of “Bahar begum” in the historical epic film Mughal-e-Azam (1960). She was the wife of filmmaker K. Asif. She died in May 2000, in Mumbai, India.

Nigar Sultana was born on 21 June 1932 in Hyderabad, India. She was the youngest daughter of a family of five. She had two brothers and two sisters. She spent her childhood in Hyderabad where her father held the rank of a Major in the Nizam’s State Army. She went to school for a while and later studied at home. She took part in a school drama on one occasion and ever after was keen on acting. After her father’s retirement, the family faced financial difficulties and Nigar was married off to a Driver. After she became pregnant the couple took divorce.

The first film Nigar ever saw was Hum Tum Aur Woh (1938). She was so utterly thrilled by it that when Jagdish Sethi, a friend of her father’s, offered her the lead in a film he was making with Mohan Bhavnani, she took it on the spot.

She entered the films with the 1946 film Rangbhoomi. She also did a small role in the film 1857. Then came Bela-47 as a Heroine opposite Jairaj. Raj Kapoor’s Aag (1948) was her first big break to Bollywood. She played the character role of “Nirmala”, which was equally appreciated by critics and audience. After that, she played character roles in a number of films.

Her big picture was Shikayat (1948), made in Poona; and after that many more in which she played leading roles. She played the role of the court dancer Bahar, who envies Prince Salim’s (Dilip Kumar) love for Anarkali (Madhubala) in the film Mughal-e-Azam (1960). The songs Teri mehfil mein and jab raat ho aisi matwali were picturised on her.Her other films included Dara (1953) and Khyber.

Patanga (1949), Dil Ki Basti (1949), Sheesh Mahal (1950), Khel (1950), Daman (1951), Anand Bhavan (1953), Mirza Ghalib (1954), Tankhah (1956), Durgesh Nandini (1956) and Yahudi (1958) are among her noted movies. She was most active during the 1950s and appeared in only a lesser number of movies later. Jumbish: A Movement – The Movie in 1986 was her last Bollywood film. The famous song of Patanga-49 ” Mere piya gaye Rangoon” was filmed on her. She looked very attractive in that song. The song is still popular.

When she was working for Ranjit Films, she posed for a provocative photo. On the publication of that photo, Ranjit removed her from their films. Later many other heroines did such Photo sessions, but the First daring was by Nigar Sultana.

Nigar Sultana was linked with Pakistani actor Darpan Kumar. She had actually married him, when he was called to Bombay by kardar for his films. In the mid 50s when she was in financial difficulties Darpan and she were divorced. On 13 June 1959, Nigar Sultana held a press conference specifically to deny reports that she was married to the Pakistani actor. Later, Nigar Sultana married K. Asif, producer-director of Mughal-e-Azam (1960). When finally she divorced K.Asif, he gave her 200 rupees per month as compensation.

Nigar had close friendship with actor Shyam, Kamal Amrohi, Najam Naqvi, Rehman, Zuhur Raja, and D N Madhok also.

Nigar Sultana was the mother of actress Heena Kausar. Heena Kausar appeared in secondary roles in a large number of films during the 1970s and early 1980s.

Two actresses of the 1950s, Chitra (born Afsar-un-nisa) and Paras (born Yusuf-un-nisa) were Nigar Sultana’s nieces.

She had also been married to S. M. Yusuf when he lived in India, with whom she had one child. The child became actress Heena Kausar. Nigar acted in 52 films in her 26 years’ career.

She died on 23 April 2000 in Mumbai, India. ( Thanks to wiki, book Inhe na Bhulana by Harish Raghuwanshi ji, HFGK, muVyz and my notes, for this information.)

Let us now listen to today’s excellent song from the film Sardar-55. As I had said in a few articles back, many such ‘Gems’ from the 50’s must still be uncovered. Jagmohan used 5 singers for 9 songs. Today’s song is by Asha Bhosle. In that period, she always got songs for Cabarets, Mujaras, dances and for side heroines. From this struggling position, she fought her way up to an enviable position, reaching Guiness Records. Hats off to her grit and hard work.


Song-Aayee jhoom ke deewaani liye pyaar ki nishaani (Sardaar)(1955) Singer- Asha Bhonsle, Lyricist-Udhav Kumar, MD- Jagmohan Sursagar (Jaganmoy Mitra)

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani

zara dil tu sambhal jaana
machal kahin mat jaana
tujhe apni kasam
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

tujhko hansaane tadpaane
hazaaron anjaane tere ghar aaye
banke deewaane parwaane
bejaane pehchaane yahaan mandraaye
gar jeena hai to dhokhe se zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

koi agar lalchaaye
tujhe bahlaaye
bane dildaara
karde jigar dikhlaaye
kasam bhi khaye
wahi haaye mara
in ghaaton se aur baaton se zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

ye hai zamaane waale
bade matwaale
sabhi saudaayi
padna na inke paale
na karna hawaale
nazar harjaai
koi aankhen bichha khaanse na zara
dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana
aayi jhoom ke deewaani
liye pyaar ki nishaani
zara dil tu sambhal jaana

Welcome all to this post. Today we are going to listen to a ‘party’ song from the movie ‘Yaadgaar-1970’.

‘Yaadgaar-1970’ was directed by S. Ram Sharma for ‘Kunal Chitra, Bombay’. It had Nutan, Manoj Kumar, Pran, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Junior Mehmood, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Lalita Chatterjee, Asit Sen, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shammi, Man Mohan, Polsan, Jayshree, Kuljeet, Renu, Raj Kishore, Harbans Pape, Kirti Behl, Manohar, Naidu, Birbal, Hansraj, Shrinath, Mohan Shery, Dubey, Sabina, Manohar Gosvai, Kesho Rana, Brahm Bharadwaj, Sobti, Alija, Genius, Darshan M., Ravikant, Chandra, Mohan Chhotu, Narbada Shankar, Ramlal and others.

This movie had six songs written by Indeevar and Verma Malik (three songs each).
(One song ‘ik taaraa boley’ is in two parts and it is considered as two songs).

Here is the list of songs of this movie as given in HFGK Vol- IV (1961-1970),

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ik taaraa boley tun tun, kya kahe ye tumse sun sun (Part-I) Mahendra Kapoor 13.04.2009
02 Aaye jahaan bhagwaan se pahle… wo khet mein milegaa Mahendra Kapoor 13.04.2019
03 Jis ghar mein daaku chor chhupe… Ik taaraa boley tun tun (Part-II) Mahendra Kapoor 13.04.2009
04 Bahaaron ka hai melaa … phool koi mere liye bhi to ho Asha Bhonsle Being posted today
05 Boli saawan ki raat badi paawan hai raat… Hamne dekhi hai honewaali bhabhi Mahendra Kapoor, Nutan, Manhar, Jr Mehmood, Birbal 16.05.2021
06 Jis path pe chalaa us path pe mujhe aanchal to bichhaane de… mujhe saath to aane de Lata Mangeshkar 28.11.2011

Music for this film was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip-synced on screen by young Jayshree T. In the movie this song happens at a ‘party’ (held in the name of ‘family gathering’) arranged by Prem Chopra with not so good intentions for Nutan. He tries to misbehave with Nutan.

However, it turns out that his own sister (in the movie) (I am unable to identify this actress) also has to go through the same trauma as Nutan, when actor Raj Kishore misbehaves with her. Of course, this incident takes place after the song and dance performance of Jayshree T is over and almost all members present in the party are already drunk.

So far, five songs (including one multiple version song) from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the sixth and final song of this movie ‘Yaadgaar-1970’ to be posted here on the blog. With this song, ‘Yippeeee’ moment for this movie arrives today.

Let us now listen to today’s song.

Lyrics are by Indeevar, and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

“Hamshakal” (1974)was produced by T Govindrajan and directed by Jambu for Olympic Pictures, Madras. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Tanuja, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rajesh Behl, Asrani, Meena T., Uma Dhawan, Baby Sonu, Jankidas, Prem Kumar, Madhukar, Pahalwan, Kumud Chhugani, Jagdeep etc. David, Aruna Irani, Manmohan and Asit Sen made special appearances in this movie.

This movie was originally made in Kannada as Baalu Belagithu (1970). Its box office success led to this movie getting remade in two other South Indian languages. It telugu, it was “Manchivadu” (1973) and in Tamil it was titled “Oorukku Uzhaippavan”(1976).

The Hindi remake “Hamshakal”(1974) had Rajesh Khanna, the biggest box office draw of all time in Hindi movie in the form of Rajesh Khanna, but that failed to help the movie and it flopped.

The movie songs were decent hits of tgose days, though.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog till now :-

Song Date of posting
Kaahe ko bulaaya mujhe baalmaa pyaar ke naam se 23 May 2009
Rasta dekhe tera vyaakul 30 May 2009
Ham tum gum sum raat milan ki 10 May 2010
Ek taara thhaa bada pyaara thhaa 29 December 2019
Udti chidiya udte udte 10 May 2020
Main tumko doongi sainyya pyaar ki nishaani 10 May 2021

One can see that all but one song of tghe movie have been covered i the blog during the month of may. Two songs from the movie were discussed in may 2009, another in may 2010. The next song was discussed on 29 december 2019. Next two songs have been discussed on 10 may 2020 and 10 may 2021 respectively.

It would be a good idea to cover the seventh and final song of “Hamshakal” (1974) in may 2021 itself. So here is that seventh and final song. This song is a less heard song. I had never heard it before. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Anand Baakshi is the lyricistr. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Tanuja who plays a “paagal” aurat in a paagalkhaana, which was the then politically incorrect way of describing what we today describe as a “mentally challenged” resident of a lunaatic asylum.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Hamshakal” (1974) have been covered in the blog and the movie tus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

The year ‘1971’ saw one hundred and fifteen movies released in that year. We are going to see the total list in future posts on the blog. Today we will see the list of movies released between Jan to April(From01.01.1971 to 30.04.1971).

Hullo Atuldom

“Dil Deewaana” (1974); written as ‘Dil Diwana’ in the movie’s titles; was a Rose Movies production i.e. Ramesh Behl was the producer and Narendra Bedi was the director. Though people feel it was a sequel of the successful “Jawaani Deewaani” (1972) I don’t think so.

The similarities in the two movies are the producer, director, main lead, music composer and lyricist were the same. While “Jawaani Deewaani” dealt with love between college-mates, family misunderstandings, and ‘rich-girl not-so-rich boy’ theme, “Dil Deewaana” had a rich, spoilt, playboy who tries to mend his ways when he encounters a girl working in his office. As per the norms of Hindi movies, Indian movies will be more appropriate, the girl is not-so-poor, is economically responsible for the day-to-day living of her family and is unimpressed with the economic standing of the boy. The rich boy Vijay (Randhir Kapoor), decides to introduce Nita (Jaya Bhaduri) to his doting grandma (Durga Khote) when his past catches up with him in the form of Gita (Aruna Irani), her brother Pyarelal (Manmohan) and an infant. There is one more character in this film Sunita (played by Komal a.k.a. Poonam Sinha) to add to the woes of the hero. All-in-all a normal masala movie which I recall having seen ages ago, during the days when doordarshan was the only channel available.

What has remained with me from that movie is Jaya Bhaduri playing a girl who had a mind of her own and made decisions for herself. In fact, she was one of the actresses in the ’70s, who played such roles very often and whose standing was on-par with her male co-star. I wouldn’t say that she was a great dancer like her contemporary Hema Malini (Jaya Bhaduri could put the correct foot forward and be in rhythm) but she was good in all other aspects.

I must admit that I was not a huge fan of hers, but I loved her in all the movies that I saw including “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham” (2001) with which she made a comeback to commercial movies. She had already restarted acting with “Hazaar Chaurasi ki Maa” in 1998 but that was essentially an art or middle-of-road movie which went unnoticed by the masses.

She is a Padma Shri winner along with a few Filmfare best actress awards to her name. She has been in the Hindi industry since 1971 when ‘Guddi’ released where she played a sweet, film-crazy teenager who is in love with her matinee idol Dharmendra. Of course she had already acted in a few Bengali movies before ‘Guddi’.
With this post we wish her on her 73rd birthday and also on completing 50 years in Bollywood.

‘Dil Deewaana” had six songs of which the blog has the following two:-

Song Date of posting
Jaa re jaa bewafa 9 April 2014
Sun Neeta main tere pyaar ke geet gaane lagaa hoon 30 April 2014

Today’s song is in a discotheque. We have Jaya in loud make-up but still looking dainty, pretty and cute. The song happens post Jaya inhaling some intoxicating smoke from Sharat Saxena. The song has all the elements that RD Burman was known to put in his songs- catchy tune, lot of ups and downs for the singer to race her voice through and she (Asha Bhosle) doesn’t disappoint. We have flashbacks of this song from Caravan (1971) in terms of insanely sane choreography. And it is to Jaya Bhaduri’s credit that she has pulled it off amazingly. Wish she had been offered more such dances and run-of-the mill glamour-doll roles, I wonder how she would have performed them.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 127 # Aatish-1979#
——————————————-—————————

I had mentioned in one of my earlier post on the blog, that nowadays (since Nov’2020 end) I got to listen to the radio utilizing my morning and evening time of about an hour or so while commuting towards my workplace (in the morning) and while returning back (in the evening). And normally I tune in to ‘Vivid Bharati’ only.

This exercise has given me an opportunity to listen to many songs from yesteryears and also songs from new movies. The joy and excitement of ‘the next song to be played’ is always there as on radio we cannot play songs of our choice.

Today’s song is one such song. hen I was listening to it, it sounded familiar but then I had not attentively listened to the name of the movie while the broadcast was on. The refrain ‘salaam salaam salaam’ in this song sounded familiarbut I could not put a finger to it. So, I looked for the details of this song.

This song turned out to be from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Aatish’.

That reminded me that I had watched this movie in the ‘summer vacations’ at Akola with my brothers and cousins. But I do not remember anything about the story of this movie and other details. Only thing that is still fresh in my mind is that this was a ‘Jeetendra Movie’. 😊

I looked for the video of this song and found that this song is performed by Neetu Singh (and I must say she is looking very beautiful in this song). Jeetendra, the object of her craving, is also present in the picturization of this song.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saksena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ladke ke bhes mein ladki hoon Asha Bhonsle, Chorus
02 Main nehlaa thhi bas nehlaa Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today
03 O meri laadli pyaari behnaa Mohd Rafi, Hemlata 13.08.2011
04 Sharaab hai, haan, sharaab hai Mohd Rafi, Chorus
05 Babu manejara ve he babu, manejara ve Lata, Rafi, Chorus
06 Kahin naam na apnaa likh dena … Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata, Bhushan Mehta, Mohd Rafi, chorus

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 13.08.2011. So, one can notice that this movie is about to complete its ‘ten-year’ run on the blog within next five months. 😊

let us now listen to today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced on screen by Neetu Singh. As mentioned above lyrics are by Ravindra Jain who has also the music director for this movie.

If you search in google for ‘history of post cards in India’ top of the results yields this result;

In July 1879, the Post Office of India introduced a quarter anna postcard that could be posted from one place to another within British India. This was the cheapest form of post provided to the Indian people to date and proved a huge success. … The postcard facility continues to this date in independent India.

***

Regulars on the blog are aware of how some members of this blog are fond of talking about our social institutions or our public transports and communication, like railways and post departments specifically.
Actually, it would not be wrong to say that some members like me are madly in love with the railways and postal departments in our country. And why not, both the railways and postal departments have their presence all over the country and these services also play major roles in nation building and national integration. I have a BIG nostalgia associated with both of these services.

***
I remember in my childhood days I was, (even now I am), very much fascinated with the postal services, their stationery. The overall atmosphere in a ‘post-office’ have always fascinated me.

A ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was very much popular and the most preferred one to send letters among families and friends, and others. Due to my interest in books and magazines I was frequently using it for getting various publications.

I used to order books through VPP and sometimes even if I could not buy books, I would ask for the ‘list of publications’ from various publishers. We needed to send only a ‘post card’ and in return there would be an envelope carrying printed list with printed pictures of some of the books. That would give me immense pleasure.

I was also having my library containing story books and magazines for children to read mainly during summer vacations.

The simple ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was used for many things like conveying important messages or urgent messages, as it was said that the post-cards were delivered faster than the ‘inland letter’ and ‘envelopes.
My Grand Father staying at Akola (i.e., 25 kms from Paras) was always using post-card to send us letters. And it was the same with most other people.

Years back I had pursued my correspondence studies through IGNOU wherein all the study materials were delivered by post and all communication was through posts only. So, one can guess how close the post services are to my heart. 😊

I do not remember anyone raising any ‘privacy violation issues’ those days for ‘post-cards’. I vividly remember that a ‘postman’ would never read your letters unless requested by those who could not read. They would make it a point to handover the letters to the ‘addressee’ and to no one else.

***

After coming back from Kenya in Dec’2019, I got to visit the post office here in Vadodara many times particularly for dispatch of my daughter’s online shop products and other communications. I noticed how the department has been now given a modernized look and we can also see attractive guidelines and information painted on the walls giving it a ‘super-market’ type look.

But I also noticed someting that has not changed over the years. It is a one iron-box used for storing ‘stamps’ (a box little big than or similar to a metal school box of those days) and the ‘sorting room’ or ‘chamber’ having wooden partition separating it from general office.

Another change that I noticed is in the price of the post card, inland letter and envelope. Now we have to pay fifty paise for a post card.

I have a vague recollection that I have seen post cards of ten paise or five paise as well ! May be when I was a child, I must have seen them some with my ‘stamp-collecting’ friends.

Slowly and gradually After the advent of mobile phones and many modes of faster communication the ‘postal modes’ has Slowly and gradually taken the back-seat.

Recently for the sake of nostalgia I bought one piece each of ‘post card’, inland letter and envelope’.


***
What we discussed above is all good one side of the ‘coin’ (or post-card I should say) including happy memories and nostalgia.

On the other side there is another side. Now people do not find time to write letters as they are ‘busy’ in life. Sometimes it can even create misunderstandings between two close friends, where lack of response from either side can strain their relations.

People close to you or even not so close to you always have expectations. And there are some people who are not at all punctual like others, to return a call or a reply to a letter and reciprocate with same zeal and enthusiasm. It may be inadvertentand not deliberatel, but not responding for whatever reason may affect our relations with others.

As an example, it is my habit even now to call each and every friend that I am in contact with, even if they do not reciprocate with the same enthusiasm (I expect somebody should also given me a call and give me a pleasant surprise ).

I have noticed that nowadays people will send you friend requests, emails, WhatsApp messages or use all kind of social networks. On the other hand they generally avoid face to face conversation or the joy of meeting a person and giving him (or her) a hug (😊). In older days people would jump at the opportunity of meeting each other (I mean jump with joy 😊).

Communicating with our near and dear ones is so cheap and affordable, still there are some who cannot find time to communicate with others.

In older days, such people would be described as ‘arey yaar wo to pandrah paise ka ek post card bhi nahin bhejta hai’ or ‘kam se kam pandrah paise ka ek card hi post kar dete Bhai’, ‘itne dinon se tumhaari koyi khabar hi nahin aayi, pandrah paise ka card bhi nahin kharid sakte the kya, aisi bhi kya kanjusi’😊 (I have still maintained to keep the conversation in sophisticated language … and not using dialects 😊)

After remonstating thus, the long lost friends would readily forgive you and give you benefit of doubt in view of the various reasons given by you for responding. And after a little good natured quarrel everything would be fine among the aggrived and the aggriever.

What about someone who is in love with you and has ‘nyochhawar’ed’ (slang?) oneself on you, she or he will definitely say what the lady in today’s song is saying …

I will not repeat it here instead let us listen to this in today’s song …

Jayshree T is performing this song from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Ahinsaa’. We can see Ranjeet and others in the picturization of this mujra song.

“Ahinsaa-1979” was directed by Chand for ‘Ashwin Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Shiv Kumar.

Story of this movie was written by Chand and K.B. Pathak and dialogues were written by Jainendra Jain. Editing of this movie was done by B.S. Glaad. It had Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Prem Nath, Ranjeet, Nirupa Roy, Alka, Kamini Kaushal, Rajendra Nath, Jayshree T., Jairaj, Trilok Kapoor, Tun Tun, Kundan, Mohan Shery, Bhagwan, Romeo, Jankidas, Birbal, Raj Kishore, Master Raju, Shiv Kumar, Keshav Rana, Rajan Haksar, Narendra Pathak, Major Anand, Ranveer Raj, Hiralal and others. Om Shivpuri, Dev Kumar, Shakti Kapoor, Shyamlee make a friendly appearance in this movie. Asrani make a special appearance in this movie.

This movie had four songs. Two were written by Rajkavi Tulsi and one each by Ram Bharadwaj and Anjaan.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Anand Kumar C., and Badri Prasad (mentioned in HFGK not in the movie titles) had given their voices to the songs in this movie.
Music of this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.06.1979.

let us enjoy this rocking(😊) mujra song dedicated to the lovely ‘post-cards’ what they were in the seventies – ‘khat, pandrah paise waalaa’. Just out of curiosity I counted and noted that the word ‘pandrah paise waalaa’ appears ‘sixteen’ times in the song…

With today’s song this movie “Ahinsaa-1979” makes its debut on the blog. (It also serves another purpose of bringing ‘movies with same title on the blog’. We already have “Ahinsaa-1947” on the blog.

I have not watched today’s movie so can’t say much about its storyline but we can get idea of the story of this movie from the following dedication in titles;

‘This movie is dedicated to all those criminals and dacoits who surrendered themselves to the law with the inspiration of Loknayak Shri. Jayaprakash Narayan’

I had come across the today’s song a few months ago when I was looking for ‘Kalyanji-Anandji’ composed songs.
On going through other songs of this movie I find only song sounding familiar to me which is ‘Yaar mera rab ho gaya’ only. I was curious to know about the other songs so I listened to them and found today’s song as an interesting 😊 song.

Let us now listen to today’s song. Lyrics for the today’s song are by Ram Bharadwaj and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

arey pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa

ye mardon ki jaat
nibhaaye naa saath
muyee mardon ki jaat
nibhaaye naa saath
jo aurat ko samjhe
khilaunaa aa
kabhi bante hain yaar
kabhi karte hain pyaar
jo dikhaate hain sapnaa salonaa
hai tujhko qasam
ye bataa de balam

ye bataa de balam
kya souten ne tere din phere ae
arey kaalaa jaadu daalaa
bairi kaalaa jaadu daalaa

bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa

dekh main phuljhadi
tere dar pe khadi ee
dekh main phuljhadi
tere dar pe khadi
mujhe pehnaa de pyaar ka kangnaa aa
ye hai arzi meri
ye hai marzi meri
tere nainon mein hai mujhe basnaa
mere dil mein hai jo
naa jaane tu wo
mere dil mein hai jo
naa jaane tu wo
kaise bedardi sainyya se ae ae
kaahe padaa paalaa
bairi kaahe padaa paalaa

par tune to khat bhi na daalaa
arey pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
pandrah paise waalaa
bairi pandrah paise waalaa
