Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 105# In Remembrance – Kishore Kumar #
—————————————- ——————————————-

Today 13th October’2020 is the thirty-third ‘Remembrance Day’ of the legendary singer Kishore Kumar.
It was on 13th October’1987 that he left this world at the age of fifty-eight only (04.08.1929-13.10.1987) leaving his family, followers and fans shocked, grief-stricken and heart-broken.

On this occasion as a tribute to him here is a song from ‘1976’ movie ‘Aaj Ka Ghar’.

I was not aware of this movie earlier until I came across this song a few years back. I guess this must be a lesser known or may be even an obscure movie (though it is now available on internet and uploaded three months back (the link which I saw).

‘Aaj Ka Ghar-1976’ was directed by Surendra Shailaj for ‘Shi Adarsh Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Jaymala. Surendra Sinha was the production controller for of this movie.

It had Jaymala, Shreeram Lagoo, Romesh Sharma, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Baby Mona, Jalal Agha, Madan Puri, I.S. Johar, Chandrashekhar, Ramesh Deo, Master Tito and A.K. Hangal. They were supported by K.K. Purohit, Ilaben, Neelam, Jassu Ben, Jagirdar, Nazmu, Lata Sahni, Chhotu, Vinay, Hansa, Jagmohan Juneja, Mohan Thakur, Duggal, A.U. Khatri and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by B.K. Adarsh whereas the basic idea was by Harin Mehta. Editing of this movie was done by Ravi Patankar. Dialogues and lyrics were written by M.G. Hashmat and revised dialogues were written by Surendra Shailaj (who directed the movie).

Music of this movie was composed by music duo Anil-Arun who composed music for many successful Marathi movies from 1971-1991. Both of them worked independently as well as a ‘team’ for Marathi movies. They also worked as assistants (music arranger) for S.D. Burman and also worked as assistants for may Hindi movies jointly as well as independently.

Anil of Anil Arun is the famous music composer and arranger Anil Mohile whereas Arun Paudwal (spouse of Anuradha Paudwal) was music director. However, as Arun Paudwal passed away in 1991 the pair was broken.

Arun Paudwal also composed music for the ‘1992’ movie ‘Meera Ka Mohan’ which was released after his death. And thereafter Anil Mohile continued to give music to Marathi Movies. He also arranged music for more than hundred programs of Lata Mangeshkar and many Hindi movies too. He passed away on 1st February’2012. Lata Mangeshkar penned a heartfelt condolence on his death as he was very close to the Mangeshkar family.

Coming back to the songs of today’s movie the movie had only three songs-one solo each by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal and one duet of Anuradha Paudwal and Adolf.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.12.1976.

Today’s song is a back-ground song sung by Kishore Kumar and written by M.G. Hashmat. Music is composed by Anil-Arun (I guess this the only Hindi movie they jointly composed music for).

They make their debut on the blog with the movie also making its debut on the blog.

In the few initial posts in this series I had presented some background songs sung by Kishore Kumar. I think it would be interesting to compile a list of such background songs he sung in Hindi movies and that gives us an interesting topic for another post in the future.

Secondly when I came back from Kenya after finishing the project there, I had planned that I will surely visit Khandwa on at least two important dates i.e. 4th August and 13th October as the Kishore fans there always have special programs on these dates, however due to the current situation I doubt if the programs would be held there.

Also couple of years back we had heard that the ancestral home of Kishore Kumar in Khandwa is either sold or bought by somebody and it is going to be renovated due to its dilapidated condition. I am not aware of its present status now(or if it has been taken over by the state government as some rumors were there?). But I will always cherish the memories my earlier visits to Khandwa to this place and the Kishore Kumar memorial there on the Khandwa-Indore road.

Remembering the ‘versatile genius’ Abhas Kumar Ganguly – Kishore Kumar today and paying our tributes, let us listen to one of his songs …

I have not watched this movie. But, from the video of the song available it seems that the song gets played in parts in the movie at various situations and twists and turns in the story of the movie.

However, the happy ‘antaraa’ is played in the beginning of the movie (with titles, as I have watched the titles) and is repeated in the end of the movie where we have a ‘happy ending’ 🙂

I hope that you like this song …

Lyrics

(played in background with titles)

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar
Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar
Aaj ka ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi

Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal
Zindagi ka Safar
Dekh lo ik nazar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

(Lyrics as per video link)

Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar

Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar
Jaane kyon lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar

Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein
Kaisi ye aandhi chali
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein

Kyon tod di jhonkon ne
Gham ke shaakh se khilti kali
Chal diya baaghbaan bhi
Kali raund kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Ae aasmaan ye to bataa
Ye kis khata ki di sazaa
Kyun gaya apna hi dil mera tod kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

meri mamtaa ki nishaani ee

Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa

Gardishon mein waqt ki hain
Zindagi ke kaafile ae ae
Aa aa aa aa aa
Gardishon mein waqt ki hain

Dil se lagaaya kal jinhen

Chha gaya andhkaar
Ab main jaaun kidhar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

zindagi ki kashmakash se
toot kar jaaun kahaan
main chhoot kar is qaid se
jaaun bhi to jaaun kahaan
sholaa ban jal uthhi ee
meri shaam o sahar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Kaanton se bhi uljha magar
Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saudaagar” released on 26th october 1973, that means it is 15-days short of 47 years ago. The movie had Nutan paired with Amitabh Bachchan (he was yet to taste success, when he signed up for the movie). He played a ‘Gur’ trader who made a living out of ‘gur’ made from Date-syrup by Mahzubeen -a widow played by Nutan. He meets Phoolbanu (Padma Khanna), likes her, and approaches her father with a marriage proposal. Phoolbanu’s father (Murad) asks for ‘Mehar’ which Moti (AB) does not have. So he proposes marriage to Mahzubeen, so that he doesn’t have to pay her for the ‘gur-making’ and save up for the mehar by the end of the ‘gur-season’. At the end of the season he divorces Mahzubeen and again approaches Phoolbanu’s father who is satisfied with the mehar and Moti marries Phoolbanu. But he faces a problem when the ‘gur’ as the product made by Phoolbanu is not on the same level as the previous season and Moti loses customers and business. He is forced to seek out Mahzubeen who has by the married a widower who is honest to her that he wants a mother for his children. Moti requests her to make a few “vats of gur’ she is at first upset at him for the way he had treated her. She relents on seeing Phoolbanu and Moti’s pitiable condition. The movie ends with the two ladies meeting each other affectionately signifying that Mahzubeen had forgiven Moti’s selfishness for the sake of his family.

“Saudaagar” was directed by Sudhendu Roy who was a art director, production designer who later on became a director with Rajshri Production’s “Uphaar” (1971). He was associated with Bimal Roy from 1958/9 in movies like “Madhumati” “Sujata” etc and was active in Bollywood till 1999. His work could be seen in Subhash Ghai’s “Karz” Karma” etc, Yash Chopra’s “Silsila” “Chandni” etc and right on till “Vijeta” (1996; not to be confused with the movie produced by Shashi Kapoor). His youngest daughter Sharmishta has followed in her father’s footsteps.

Coming back to “Saudaagar”, it was based on the Bengali story “Ras” by Narendranath Mitra and was produced by Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri Pictures. Ravindra Jain was the writer and composer of its songs. If I am not wrong this was his first Hindi movie. He was born in Aligarh to a homemaker mother and Sanskrit pandit father. He was sent for training in music by his father who recognized his talent very early and he started singing bhajans at temples when he was young.

We have been entertained by his songs in Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gata Chal and numerous other movies. In this post from “Saudaagar” Atulji has made an interesting observation:- Ravindra Jain made a mark for himself with songs sung by singers other that the legends who were active then. But of course he had Asha, Lata, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey singing a song each for him in this movie. Todays’ song is in Mohd Rafi’s vocals, a very soft song typical Rafi Magic.

This movie had seven songs of which 5 are there on the blog as under

Song Posted on
Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon 4 April 2009
Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye 15 april 2009
Tera mera saath rahe 17 april 2009
Door hai kinaara 18 april 2009
Champa nahin chameli nahin 4 april 2019

Another interesting thing about this movies journey on the blog is it made its debut in April of 2009. We had four songs from that movie in that month. And the next post from the movie happened after a ten year gap in 2019 under the Blog Ten Year Challenge.

Remembering Ravindra Jain today on his anniversary, it is five years since he left this mortal world, but he will be immortal because of his work.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 101 # Remembering Salil Chowdhury #
————————————————————————————

Today 5th September 2020 is the twenty-fifth (19 November 1922 – 5 September 1995) ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ great music director and also lyricist, writer and poet Salil Chowdhary.

Salil Chowdhury has given us some of the unforgettable and even immortal songs in movies like ‘Do Bigha Zameen-1953’, ‘Naukri-1954’, ‘Jaagte Raho-1956’, ‘Madhumati-1958’, ‘Parakh-1960’, ‘Chhayaa-1961’, ‘Anand-1971’, ‘Mere Apne-1971’, ‘Rajnigandha-1974’ and many many others. There is a long list of his achievements and recognitions which very well deserved a detailed post. However today we will discuss a lesser known movie where music is composed by him.

Today’s song is from a movie ‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’.

I came across this song almost seven years back and it is lying pending since then. That time the very less information was available with me about his movie. After that I got information from HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The movie had also become available online for some time before becoming unavailable again.

Here are the details about his movie.

‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Lakshmi Enterprise’ and ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee Unit’. Saroj Bannerjee, Susheela Kamat, Nitin Mukesh and Shakeel Chandra were assistant directors. The movie was presented by Ashok Hira and Kishore Kanungo

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Nityanand Dutt and D.N. Mukherjee were his associates.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Gulzar. Additional scenes were written by Salil Chowdhary and lyrics were written by Yogesh.

Das Dhaimade was the Editor in chief for this movie whereas Subhash Gupta was the sound editor. Editing was done by Shanker Pradhan, Shreedhar Mishra, Khan Zaman Khan and Anil Pradhan. Biren Tripathy was the Dialogue director of this movie. Anil Ghosh was the associate director and controller of production.

This movie had Vijay Arora, Robi Ghosh, Meeta Faiyyaz, Naarghita, Kumud Damle, Meher Banu, Rajni Bala, Sabeena, Sunita, Tun Tun. Kali Bannerjee, Utpal Dutt, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee. They were supported by S. N. Banerjee, Raj Verma, Bhola, Noni, Tarun Ghosh, Mukund Babu, Sudha, Sarita Devi, Shreedhar, Jagjit, Meena Rai and others.

Manna Dey, Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita had given their voice to the two songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Salil Chowdhury. Kanu Ghosh and Shashikant assisted him in music.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.11.1972.

Today’s song is a background song played while the titles of the movie are rolling. Earlier video links were available which now seem to have become obsolete and only the audio of this song is available.

This song is sung by Manna Dey. This movie had total two songs and the other song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Salil Chowdhury.

With this song ‘Sabse Badaa Suh-1972’ makes its debut on the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No.61
————————————————–—————————————————

Here, we move on to the second and last movie eligible today for the ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’.
The movie is ‘Sahaaraa-1958’.

As discussed in earlier post today the other movies represented today ten years back were as under;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye duniyaa rang badalti hai Sahaaraa-1958 07 songs posted
Dil se dil takraaye Love Marriage-1959 All songs covered
Matwaali naar thumak thumak chali jaaye Ek Phool Chaar Kaante-1960 All songs covered
Phir ek baar kaho Maayaa-1961 All songs covered
Dekhi anaadi teri preet Biraadari-1966 All songs covered
Kaun sunegaa kisko sunaayen Sautan Ki Beti-1989 01 song posted

“Sahaara”(1958) had ten songs in it, including one three version song. Two parts of that three version song is covered in the blog in this post. One of its versions could not be covered because that version does not seem to be available. Counting the two versions as two separate songs (as is the case in HFGK), the seven posts in the blog have covered eight songs from the movie so far. The fact that this is a three version song was discovered by me while going through the HFGK entries for this movie. The entries of this song has been updated accordingly, by adding part 3 of this song there. Part 2 ‘Aaghaz muhabbat ki baaten kya faydaa ab dohraane se’ appearently is not available as of now.

Here are the details of the eight songs from “Sahaara”(1958) discussed so far in the blog:-

Song Posted On Remarks
So jaa dukhiyaare 24.06.2009
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye duniyaa rang badalti hai 27.08.2010
Billi bajaaye baajaa 26.11.2010
Andhhon se dayaa karnaa daataa 12.12.2010
Mujhe tarke taalluk ke liye samjhaaya jaata hai 12.12.2011 Three part song, one part unavailable
Chham chham chham chham chale wo maa 16.06.2015
Ban ke suhaagan rahi abhaagan 18.12.2016

We can see that the movie made its debut on the blog on 24.06.2009 i.e. more than eleven years ago.

Well, when I noticed that the music director of this movie is Hemant Kumar and moreover lyrics were written by Bharat Vyas I was more than happy to take a song for presentation and do not want to miss this opportunity (because of special reasons 😊 which is the matter of another post, so keep visiting the blog 😊).

“Sahaaraa-1958’ was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for ‘Tasviristaan, Bombay’. It was produced by Kuldeep Sehgal. The movie had Meena Kumari, M. Rajan, Daisi Irani, Manoj Kumar, Geeta Sinha, Kuldeep Kaur, Kanhaiyalal, Badri Prasad Leela Mishra, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Sagar, Rinku, Shakeel Nomani, Khanna, Black & White, Kardar, Ameer Banu, Chandabai, Sadhna, Maya Das, Kanchanmala and others.The movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.08.1958.

Music of this movie was composed by Hemant Kumar. And lyrics for all the ten songs were written by Bharat Vyas.

The song under discussion is sung by Protima Bannerjee and composed by Hemant Kumar.

Lyrics of this song reminds me of another such song from the movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ – ‘jo dukh se ghabra jaaye wo nahin hind ki naari’. I think we have many songs in Hindi movies falling in this category where the ‘Bhartiya Naari’ is eulogized for her strength and sacrifices for the sake of her family. Today’s song happens in this situation in the movie.

The song is a background song where Meena Kumari can be seen travelling in a ‘bullock-cart’ returning from her ‘In-Laws house’, where her father in law requested her to suffer for the mistake of his own daughter to save his ‘prestige’ in the society …

I have not watched the full movie so can’t say much about it and its other songs …

If we can locate the missing part of the three part song then this song would see the movie getting YIPPEED. But seeing that one part of the song remains uncovered, this movie too remains technically unYIPPEED.

“Raagini”(1958) was produced by Ashok Kumar and Ganesh and directed by Rakhan for Ashok Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Padmini, Jabeen Jaleel, Balam, Sundar, Nazeer Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Amir Banu, Protima Devi, Rajendra, Master Vinod (Mehra), Baby Leela, Navami, Ifthikhar, Jamal, Mirajkar, Kathana, Bhardwaj, Narbada Shankar, Master Raja etc in it.

This “social” movie was quite an entertaining movie, as can be judged from the songs of the movie. This movie had as many as twelve songs in it. Eleven songs have been covered so far. Here are the details of these songs :-

Blog Post number Song Posted on Singers Remarks
341 Main Bangali chhokra Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle 4 December 2008

14842 Dil todne waale bata ke jaa Asha Bhonsle 16 Jan 2019
15383 Chhed diye mere dil ke taar kyun Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan, Ustaad Fateh Ali Khan 16 Jan 2020 Kishore Kumar and Anand Pal lip syncing in the voices of classical singers
15813 Tujhe dekh ke machal gaya aaj mera mann Asha Bhonsle 16 Jan 2020

The movie had Kishore Kumar and one would expect him to sing for himself. He did that in four songs. In addition, he lip synced a song in Rafi’s voice.

But that is not all. There is another song in the movie which is sung by doyens of Hindustani classical music namely Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan and Ustaad Fateh Ali Khan. This song is lip synced on screen by Kishore Kumar and Anand Pal.

Finding classically trained Naushad using the voices of Ustaads of Hindustani classical music is expected, but O P Nayyar, who was supposedly untrained in Hindustani classical music actually got Ustaads to sing for his movie is something unexpected.

Naushad of course, got Ustaad Amir Khan to sing in “Baiju Baawra”(1952), as also Pt D V Paluskar. In “Mughal e Azam”(1960) he got Ustaad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. We had also witnesed Pt Bhimsen Joshi singing in “Basant Bahaar”(1956).

Come to think of it, the title “Raagini” itself is a derivative of “Raag”. The movie apparently had Kishore Kumar playing a musician.

The movie begins with a classical song sung by Ustaad amir Khan while titles roll in. and that “movie opening” song is the only song from the movie which is not yet covered.

So, here is that twelfth and final song from “Raagini”(1958) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Ustaad Amir Khan. Lyricist is not known. O P Nayyar is of course credited as the music director.

A comment in youtube suggests that this song is in Raag Lalit, a morning raag.

I have a feeling that “Raagini”(1958) for O P Nayyar must haave been a labour of love, that gave been great creative satisfaction.

With this song, all the songs of “Raagini”(1958) are covered in the blog and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Thank you Nahmji for reminding me of this song. How? Well in your previous post on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan you mentioned his nephew. And immediately I thought of today’s song which is written by the poet, lyricist, author screenwriter and director who turns a year younger today.

This man has worked with all the legends of the Hindi film industry beginning (as lyricist) with Sachin Dev Burman in 1963 in a movie directed by Bimal Roy. His last released movie is “The Sky is Pink” which released in September 2019 and was directed by Shonali Bose (a new director who has been making films since 2005) and had music by Pritam Chakravarty. In the interim (1963 to 2019) he has written songs for movies directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Asit Sen etc of the earlier brigade and Shaad Ali, Mani Ratnam, Danny Boyle etc from the newer set of directors. He has of course written songs in the movies he himself directed, the last of which came in 1999 – Hu Tu Tu. This Sahitya Akademi, Dadasaheb Phalke, Padma Bhushan award winner has won several National Film awards, 21 Filmfare awards and also an Academy Award (popular as Oscars) plus a Grammy. Such a talent that even International juries cannot ignore right?

So it must already be clear that I am here wishing Shri. Sampooran Singh Kalra professionally called Gulzar on his 86th birthday. There is enough material in various posts about this man’s biography so let us go directly to the song which has a play of words that is typical of Gulzar saab.

In this song he has used words like “Piri” which I am sure that common people like me don’t know the meaning of. I would love it if someone can give synonyms.
This song is from “Ishqiya” which released in 2010. (10 years back). It was directed by Abhishek Chaubey, produced by Raman Maroo and Vishal Bharadwaj and has music by Vishal Bharadwaj. It had a highly talented star cast headed by stalwart Naseeruddin Shah, Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi and a whole lot of talent in supporting cast too. It was written by Gulzar too. The story was placed in Gorakhpur. It had to do with the escapades of two criminals who botch up a job and run away to take refuge in the home of one Vidyadhar Verma (Adil Hussain- remember seeing him as Sridevi’s husband in “English Vinglish”) and end up meeting Verma’s wife Krishna (Vidya Balan) who gives them shelter to achieve her own secret goal.

Baaki ki kahaani parde pe (see the movie to enjoy this ‘black comedy’). After all if this 86 year old can say “dil toh bachcha hai ji” even we, his fans, should have bachhpana in our “dil”
The song is sung by Raahat Fateh Ali Khan.

Happy Birthday once again Kalraji a.k.a Gulzar saab.


Song-Dil to bachcha hai jee (Ishqiya)(2010) Singer-Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Vishal Bhardwaj

Lyrics

aisi uljhi nazar unse hat’ti nahin
daant se reshmi dor kat’ti nahin
umr kabki baras ke sufed ho gayi
kaari badri jawaani ki chhat’ti nahin
wallah yeh dhadkan
badhne lagi hai
chehre ki rangat
udne lagi hai
darr lagta hai tanha sone mein jee
dil toh bachcha hai jee
dil toh bachcha hai jee
thoda kachcha hai jee
aaaaa
dil toh bachcha hai jee
aisi uljhi nazar unse hat’ti nahin
daantse reshmi dor kat’ti nahin
umr kab ki baras ke sufed ho gayi
kaari badri jawaani ki chhant’ti nahin
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa

raaa ra aaa aaa aa

kisko pata thha pehlu mein rakkha
dil aisa paaji bhi hoga
hum toh hamesha samajhte thhe koi
hum jaisa haaji hi hoga
haaye zor karein kitna shor karein
bewajah baaton pe ainvayi gaur karen
dil sa koi kameena aa nahin
koi toh roke
koi toh toke
iss umr mein ab khaaoge dhokhe
darr lagta hai ishq karne mein jee
dil toh bachcha hai jee,
dil toh bachcha hai jee
thhoda kachcha hai jee,
aaaa
dil toh bachcha hai jee

aisi udaasi baithhi hai dil pe
hansne se ghabra rahe hai
saari jawaani katra ke kaati
piri mein takra gaye hai
dil dhadkta hai toh
aise lagta hai woh
aa raha hai yahin dekhta hi raho
prem ki maare kataar re ae
tauba yeh lamhe
kat’te nahin kyun
aankhon se meri
hat’te nahin kyun
darr lagta hai khud se kehne mein bhi
dil toh bachcha hai jee,
dil toh bachcha hai jee
thhoda kachcha hai jee,
aaaaa
dil to bachcha hai jee

‘Gumnaami’ (2019) is a Bangla film with fairly good parts of dialogues in Hindi and English. The film is produced under the banner of Shri Venkatesh Films and is directed by Srijit Mukherjee. The main star cast consists of Prosenjit Chatterjee (as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and later as Gumnaami Baba), Anirban Bhattacharya (as journalist, Chandrachur Dhar), Tanushri Chakraborty (as Ronita Dhar), Surendra Rajan (as Mahatma Gandhi), Sanjay Gurubuxani (as Jawaharlal Nehru) etc. The film was released on October 2, 2019. Being a recent release, as of now, the movie is not available on video sharing platforms.

I watched the film on one of the OTT platforms. The film is not a biopic on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It is based on later events, relating to the investigations by Mukherjee Commission, which was set up by Government of India in 1999 to probe the death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The Commission was assigned the task to tackle the three broad theories surrounding the alleged mysteries and unanswered questions related to Netaji’s death. First, Netaji died in a plane crash while taking off from an airport in Taiwan. Second, he staged a fake plane crash to escape to Russia where he died in prison. Lastly, Netaji staged a plane crash, escaped to Russia and returned to India as a sanyasi (monk) known as ‘Bhagwan ji’ or ‘Gumnaami Baba’ who died in September 1985 in Faizabad.

Film starts with Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru advising Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who was the then Congress President, that he should support the British Government during World War II. They also advocate non-violent methods for attaining India’s freedom from the British Rule. Netaji disagrees by saying that freedom is to be snatched from Britishers rather than demanding from them. Due to his differences with Congress High Command, he resigns from the Indian National Congress. He goes abroad to make allies with Japan and Germany who are at war with Great Britain and the Allied forces. He sets up Indian National Army with the support of Japan.

After the surrender of Japan to allied forces in Burma, Netaji shifts his forces to Singapore and then to Bangkok. He advises his forces to surrender while he with Rahman will go to Tokyo for onward escape to Soviet Union which, according to his view, would become anti-British after the war. He can then fight for India’s independence from there. While travelling to Soviet Union, Netaji’s plane catches fire and he dies after a few hours of the accident due to burn injury on August 18, 1945. He is cremated and his ashes are taken to Tokyo.

There have been many commissions and reports to inquire about the circumstances of Netaji’s death but there still remains uncertainty and the doubts have been raised in various quarters about the death of Netaji from time to time. In 1999, Government of India decides to set up the Mukherjee Commission go into the mysteries behind Netaji’s death afresh.

In 2003, a journalist, Chandrachur Dhar is given an independent assignment by his employer, Indiatimes to make a research-based study on the mystery of Netaji’s death. Chandrachur believes that all the myths surrounding Netaji’s death are hoaxes. Nevertheless, he takes up the assignment and spends much of his time in gathering evidences. During this period, his entire thinking about Netaji’s life changes. The study and research on the Netaji’s life becomes his obsession to such an extent that he neglects his personal life. His wife, Ronita feels that she is living with a husband who is unstable, crazy and unpredictable. In a fit of anger, she ransacks all the papers and documents which Chandrachur had collected in the course of his reasearch. She files for a divorce and gets it. In frustration, Chandrachur resigns his job. Instead, he forms a passionate group of his friends called ‘Mission Netaji’ to study and research to solve the mystery of Netaji’s death.

Based on extensive studies and research, Chandrachur makes presentations before the Mukherjee Commission with evidences to prove that Netaji did not die in plane crash but escaped to Russia by staging a fake plane crash. From Russia, he came to India via Tibet as a wandering monk and stayed in Lucknow. He submits 19 evidences in support of his contention.  In 2005, Mukherjee Commission presented the report to the Government of India. The Report was presented to Lok Sabha and was publicly released.

Chandrachur and his friends of ‘Mission Netaji’ have assembled in his house to read the Commission’s report. Ronita, his ex-wife has come to wish her best to Chandrachur. While Commission has come to the conclusion that Netaji has not died in the plane crash based on the various evidences including the DNA report of his remains which have been kept in Tokyo, which was identified as that of a Japanese soldier. However, due to absence of any concrete evidence, the Commission is unable to come to the conclusion whether Netaji escaped to Russia. Further, the DNA test of Gumnaami Baba did not match with that of Netaji.  The Government of India rejected the report without giving any reasons.

The rejection of the Commission’s report affected Chandrachur so much that he locks himself in a room full of the books, and documents collected over the last 3 years for his ‘Mission Netaji’. He starts burning every documents, files and books connected with his research so much so the entire room engulfs with fire. Ronita calls his friends and gets the door broken to rescue Chandrachur. The film ends with Ronita convincing Chandrachur to keep on fighting for the truth of Netaji’s death. Hence, the fight must go on until an end to the mystery.

Before I started watching this film, I did not have a very high expectation from the film because, there has been many films on the life of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. Furthermore, I was one of the believers that Netaji died in the plane crash in August 1945 and the talks thereafter about the mystery of his death were all myths and conjectures. But once I completed watching the film in one sitting, I must admit that the director, Srijit Mukherjee has managed to present the film in a way which made me to rethink about the controversies surrounding Netaji’s death. This film is a class by itself putting it on a different pedestal.

Prosenjit Chatterjee, in the role of Netaji as well as Gumnaami Baba has given an excellent performance which was a pleasant surprise for me as most of his roles in Bangla films are that of a romantic hero. His performance as a Gumnaami Baba looks so real that for once, I started feeling that Gumnaami Baba could really be Netaji in disguise. As Netaji, almost all of his dialogues are in Hindi and English. It is only when he turns to act as Gumnaami Baba, his dialogues are in Bangla.

Another roll of honor in the film goes to Anirban Bhattacharya, who in the role of Chandrachur Dhar, has given the superb performance as a journalist. His submissions to the Mukherjee Commission and the crazy reactions to the news that the Commission’s reports have been rejected by the Government are his top-most performances in the film. In fact, he has an equal presence in the film if not more than Prosenjit Chatterjee.

The film is a mix of black & white and colour. The scenes involving Netaji in pre-1945 period are in black & white while scenes representing Gumnaami Baba, Chandrachur Dhar, the journalist and the proceedings of the Mukherjee Commission are in colour. The film has dialogues in Bangla, Hindi, English and few dialogues in Japanese. These combinations in the film give a feel of a period atmosphere as well as the natural proceedings of the story in the film.

While on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, it is incidental and interesting to note that today, July 23rd,is the Remembrance Day of one of Netaji’s closest aides who led  INA’s Women Wing named the Rani Jhansi Regiment. She is Captain (Dr) Lakshmi Sehgal (24/20/1914 – 23/07/2012) of INA born as Lakshmi Swaminathan. She had barely completed her MBBS and arrived in Singapore, where she met with Netaji and got immersed in the Azad Hind movement.

During the surrender of Singapore by British to the Japanese, Dr Lakshmi helped heal the wounded soldiers of prisoners of war, many of whom were Indians. They desired to form the Azad Hind Fauj. After the arrival of Netaji in Singapore in July 1943, Dr. Lakshmi met Netaji who was keen to take women into INA. Thus she became Captain Lakshmi Swaminathan of Rani Jhansi Regiment of INA.

In Burma operations, INA joined Japanese in December 1944 but by March 1945, Japanese were on the losing ground. INA decided to beat a retreat from Burma. While crossing into Imphal, Captain Lakshmi was arrested in Burma by the British Forces and held in prison in Burma until March 1946 when she was sent to Delhi for trials as a war criminal. However, on the eve of India getting independence,  Captain Sehgal and many of the INA facing trials were set free.

In March 1947, Captain Lakshmi married Prem Kumar Sehgal and shifted to Kanpur. She continued her medical practice in Kanpur. She became a Rajya Sabha member in 1971. During the Bangla Desh crisis in 1971, she set up relief and medical camps for refugees from East Pakistan in Kolkata. During the Bhopal gas tragedy in December 1984, she led a medical team to look after those affected by the gas. She was active as a medical practitioner until the age of 92.

‘Gumnaami’ (2019) has 5 songs of which 3 are in Hindi. All songs have been used in the film as background songs. I am presenting “Shubh Sukh Chain Ki Barkha Barse” rendered by Babul Supriyo and chorus. There is an interesting history behind this song.

After the establishment of the provisional Government in exile of INA in 1943, Netaji decided to have a National Anthem for his Government. He himself selected Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore’s “Jan Gan Man Adhinayak Jai He” and asked Mumtaz Hussain and Colonel Abid Hussain Saffarani of INA to translate it into Hindustani so that it becomes easy to understand the meaning to all. He selected Captain Ram Singh Thakur to composed in the martial music so that the listeners would be awaken. It is significant to note that on the day of India’s independence on August 15, 1947, Jawaharlal Nehru unfurled the Tricolour on the ramparts of the Red Fort after which Captain Ram Singh Thakur of INA conducted the orchestra with his musicians, playing the tune of the National Anthem of INA.

In the film, this song appears towards the end of the film, incorporating the flashback of what has happened in the life of Netaji from 1940-45 and the efforts made by the journalist to unlock the mystery of Netaji’s death. The credit title of the film gives credit to Mumtaz Hussain and Colonel Abid Hussain Saffarani as lyricists and the music to Captain Ram Singh Thakur. However, I feel that Rabindranath Tagore should also get the credit since the tune was originally composed by him for “Jan Gan Man Adhinayak Jai He”. The audio clip of the song has one extra stanza.

It is the song which reminds us with moist eyes, the fond memory of Netaji of his sacrifice for the freedom of the motherland.

suraj ban kar jag par chamke
bharat naam subhaaga
jai ho…o

jai jai jai jai ho…o
bharat naam subhaaga…aa

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today 18th July is the Remembrance Day of Rajesh Khanna. He passed away on 18th July 2012. As a tribute to him here is song from the 1980 movie ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’.

My last post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna-The Phenomenon’ came almost one and half year back on his birth anniversary. In that post I had discussed a song from the 1979 movie ‘Amardeep’ and for today’s post we move to Rajesh Khanna movies in 1980.

The seventies ended on a positive note for Rajesh Khanna with ‘Amardeep’ being a hit at the box office. But, then 1980 was more like ‘turning around’ year for him on a positive note. And few of his movies performed well at the box office though only one of them viz. ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’ became a ‘hit’ movie.

If we look back on the year 1980 from the point of view of Rajesh Khanna’s film career this was an important year for him – after his fourteen years in the film industry and recovering back after a string of commercially unsuccessful movies at the box-office.

However, these unsuccessful movies saw him playing different roles and it was like if he himself was trying to get out of his ‘Rajesh Khanna’ image and maybe it was a time for him where as an ‘actor’ he was doing an introspection of self.

As an actor he was looking for stronger roles. Nobody could have imagined that any star but Rajesh Khanna will be playing a role of a ‘psychopath who rapes and kills young women’ in those times in Hindi movies, but Kaka accepted this role in ‘Red Rose’. The movie was praised by all though it bombed at the box office. But it is considered a fine piece of the talent of the director Bharathiraja and Rajesh Khanna’s performance in it.

The other four movies of the same year 1980 viz ‘Phir Wohi Raat’, ‘Aanchal’, ‘Bandish’ and the today’s movie ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’ also had him playing different roles a like a ‘psychiatrist’ in the ‘horror’ genre ‘Phir Wohi Raat’, a villager in ‘Aanchal’, a medical college student in ‘Bandish’ and a rich jeweler’s son in ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’.

He appeared in the following movies in 1980;

S.No. Movie Year Passed by Censor Board Director
01 Thodi Si Bewafaai 1980 29.04.1980 Eesmaayil Shroff
02 Red Rose 1980 23.05.1980 Bharathiraja
03 Phir Wohi Raat 1980 06.08.1980 Danny Denzongpa
04 Aanchal 1980 18.09.1980 Anil Ganguly
05 Bandish 1980 07.10.1980 K. Bappaiah

‘Thodi Si Bewafaai-1980’ was directed by Esmayeel Shroff for Konark Kombine International. It was produced by Nand Mirani and Srichand Asrani, while Rashid Ismail was the co-producer of this movie. It was presented by Nand B. Mansharamaney. Subhash Sonik was the chief assistant director of this movie. Vasant Katkar was the art director of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Rajoo. Esmayeel Shroff was the writer of this movie and its dialogues of this movie were written by Moin-ud-din. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.04.1980.

It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sushant Ray, Padmini Kolhapure, Deven Verma, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, AK Hangal, Jalal Agha, Shashi Kiran, Raja Bakshi, Urmila Bhatt, Gayatri, Gouri Khorana, Preeti Ganguly, Deena Pathak, Leela Mishra, Madhu Chauhan, Lalita Kumari, Murad, Dharamveer, Moolchand, Ramavtar, Manmauji, Jameel, Kishore, Sunder Taneja, Gopal Sirkar, Mani and others. This movie introduced Dr. Maya Alagh.

This movie had total six songs written by Gulzar and composed by Khayyam Saab. Singers Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Sulakshana Pandit, Anwar, Jagjit Kaur and Bhupendra had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Today’s song is a background song (cum theme song too) sung by Bhupinder Singh.

This song is in three parts – first part happens as the movie starts with court proceedings where the court rules in favor of Neema (Shabana Azmi) and allows her to live separately from Arun Choudhary (Rajesh Khanna). The court also gives the custody of their child to Neema and allows Arun to meet the child for two hours once in a week on Sunday. As Neema, her child, her brother and Arun came out of the court, Arun once again tries to convince Neema to think about her decision but she is adamant and leaves with the child. Here the titles of the movie are rolling and the song continues.

Second part happens when Neema visits an optical shop for getting her spectacles repaired. The shop owner is Deven Verma and Arun (Rajesh Khanna) is working there. Here again very less dialogue is exchanged between them and Neema leaves the shop as Arun keeps watching her. The second part plays in the background here.

Third part of this song gets played when Arun visits Neema after a gap of twelve years to get his son back with him (as allowed by the court when the child completes fourteen years of age). However, he is told by Neema that Nandu (Sushant Ray) their son has gone to Bombay without telling her. Arun leaves in fury threatening Neema to meet once again in court. As he leaves Neema, who is shattered in grief, regrets to herself …

meraa to jeewan ujad gayaa …
main muqadamaa jeet kar haar gayi
tum muqadamaa haar kar jeet gaye
tumhaare liye Nandu sab kuchh hai, aur main kuchh bhi nahin,
ek baar mujhe bulaa kar to dekh liyaa hota, saaraa jeewan tumhaare pichhe pichhe chalti rehti …

Enjoy the words of Gulzar Saab, and Bhupinder Singh’s voice a perfect fit for such poignant philosophical songs and Khayyam Saab’s timeless music.

I have deliberately selected this background theme song for today where we can watch and enjoy the nuanced performances by both Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi.

Enjoy the ‘times’ and ‘charisma’ of Superstar – Rajesh Khanna. . .
