It can be seen from the table of 1998 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 11 songs in 4 movies released in 1998.

Two songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1998 have been covered in the blog. All songs from one movie “Dil Se”(1998)- a grand total of one Lata Mangeshkar solo song, has been covered in the blog. So 9 songs from 3 movies of 1998 sung by Lata Mangeshkar are yet to be covered in the blog.

Alphabetically “Dushman”(1998) is the first movie of 1998 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dushman”(1998) was inspired from Hollywood movie “Eye for an eye”(1996). It was produced by Pooja Bhatt and directed by Tanuja Chandra for Pooja Bhatt Productions, Bombay. The movie had Kajol(in dual/double role), Sanjay Dutt, Ashutosh Rana, Tanvi Azmi, Jas Arora,Pramod Moutho, Kunal Khemu, Pratima Kazmi, Anupam Shyam,Vani Tripathi, Amardeep Jha, Rahul Singh, Vishesh, Sanjeev Vatsa,Robin Bhatt, Pinky Singh, Omkar Singh, Baby Varsha, Naresh suri,Master Vishal,Dinesh Chaturvedi,Krishna Bhatt, Savita Karle, Varsha Lalwani, Javed Rizvi, Narendra Sachar etc in it.

The movie had 9 songs in it. Five of these songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in it.

One song (a Lata Mangeshkar duet song) has been covered in the past.

Here is another song from the movie. It is a multiple version song. Female version is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and male version by Jagjit Singh. Male version also has humming by Lata Mangeshkar, so it can even be considered a duet. In case we consider a duet then it would become the first ever Lata-Jagjit Singh duet in Hindi movies. Here I have considered it as a duet.

Lata Mangeshkar version is a background song which is picturised on Tanvi Azmi, Kajol, Baby Varsha, Jas Arora etc.

Only audio of the Jagjit Singh (with Lata Mangeshkar humming) is available.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————

———————————————–————————

Here is the list: –

33 Tere Mere Sapne Vijay Anand 13.05.1971 Y ippeeee’ed
34 Tulasi Vivaah Chandrakant 22.07.1971 3/14 Songs posted

We can see from the above table that three movies viz. ‘Baghaawat’, ‘Dakoo Maan Singh’, and ‘Maayaa Baazaar’ have not yet made their debuts on the blog.

The songs from these three movies seem to be unavailable as of now (as I could not find them). One movie ‘Hulchal’ had no songs in it. That gives us thirty movies from the total of thirty-four movies which have been represented on the blog.

Out of these thirty movies exactly half numbers i.e., fifteen movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, eleven movies from this period 01.05.1971 to 31.08.1971 still have a few songs left to be covered. Out of these eleven movies I have presented songs from ‘Badnaam Basti’, ‘Bahke Kadam’, ‘Brahmaa Vishnu Mahesh’, ‘Iraadaa’ and ‘Shaan E Khuda’.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan’. I had not listened to the songs from this movie earlier and even the name was new to me when I came across it first time. I listened to the today’s song while preparation of this post and liked the song too.

“Puraani Pehchaan-1971” was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Durga Films, Bombay’.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Tanuja, Madan Puri, Bela Bose, Shammi, B.B. Bhalla, Tarun Bose, Dhanraj, Dilip Dutt, Johny Whisky, Sangeeta, Rafia Sultana, and others.

This movie had six songs composed by Music Director Bhushan and lyrics for all songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Following is the details of the songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Bachpan ka saath chhoota hai jaise ki khwaab toota hai Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Murli naa chhed Kaanha Asha Bhonsle
03 Ye naa hamse poochhiye mil gayaa hai kya hamen Mohd Rafi,Asha Bhonsle 24.12.2012
04 Aye jaan e bahaaraan rooh e chaman Mohd Rafi 27.01.2016
05 Aa aa, aa jaa, mujhe neend aa gayi thhi, kisi dard ne jagaaya Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today
06 Aaj ki raat nahin dil ko jalaane ke liye Asha Bhonsle

Geet Kosh-V mentions that the title for this movie was changed later from ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ which was its initial title given. Also, the 78 RPM records for the soundtracks of this movie were released by this name – ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ only.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1971.

Two songs from this movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan-1971’ have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is Tanuja lip syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also see in the picturization of this song are Sanjeev Kumar, Bela Bose, Madan Puri and others.

This song seems to be a ‘haunting’ song in the movie. I have not watched this movie, so can’t say much about it.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

The picturization of this song reminds us of similar other songs in Hindi movies, e.g., ‘rulaa ke gayaa sapnaa mera’ from ‘Jewel Thief-1967’ etc. But we do not exactly know in what context the today’s song happens.

However, we can listen and enjoy the today’s song …

As mentioned above singer for today’s song is Asha Bhonsle and lyrics are by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music is composed by Bhushan.


Song-Mujhe neend aa gayi thhi (Puraani Pehchaan)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Bhushan

Lyrics

aaja aa aa aa

aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa

mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
kisi dard ne jagaaya
dhaley aankh se jo aansoo
tera naam yaad aayaa aa
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa

meri har khushi pareshaan
meri har nigaah pyaasi
kabhi kaash tu bhi dekhe
mera gham meri udaasi
maine pyaar se hameshaa
tera har sitam uthhaayaa
dhaley aankh se jo aansoo
tera naam yaad aayaa aa
mujhe neend aa gayi thi
mujhe neend aa gayi thi
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa

teri berukhi ke haathon
main qaraar kho chuki hoon
kayi baar ashq tadpe
kayi baar ro chuki hoon
mujhe gham ki aag de kar
toone raat din jalaayaa
dhaley aankh se jo aansoo
tera naam yaad aayaa aa
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa
aaja aa aa

tera pyaar ban gayi hai
kisi ajnabi ki baahen
tujhe mil gayi hai manzil
meri kho gayi hain raahen
jo na dekhna thha dekha
jo naseeb thha wo paayaa
dhaley aankh se jo aansoo
tera naam yaad aayaa aa
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
kisi dard ne jagaaya
dhaley aankh se jo aansoo
tera naam yaad aayaa aa
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi
mujhe neend aa gayi thhi

Celebrating 75th year of India’s independence
————————————————————

I was just talking to a friend, who is very much involved with charity work and NGO’s. I said to her that it is very important for us to be charitable in all walks of life, for the health and prosperity of our soul. Doing a small thing for someone else’s benefit, however small that thing may be, which might not require any great effort on our part, gives immense satisfaction to us. This is to be experienced and not imparted. Giving and sharing of knowledge, makes the job of a teacher and guide the most charitable one in my opinion. Giving of advice or offering verbal guidance is sometimes ridiculed. But if an experience is shared, helps someone reach a correct decision or destination, there is nothing like it, as an act of charity free of cost.

But I find in myself, a hesitancy is directly offering to help. If I come across someone in need, then I would do so in whatever capacity I can, I told the friend, but I don’t go out of my way to find if someone requires some help. This is where I lack, and the charity organisations and NGO’s do the maximum output this way. The final conclusion of this discussion was that if everyone of us is involved in small acts of charity, in whatever way and in whatever capacity we can, the world will be a much better place.

Not that it is a very bad place to live, there is good and there is evil. Most of humanity is a charitable mass. Here devilry exists, that’s how we can know and value the goodness around us. One day I found a very good friend of mine reading a so called, non-fiction book titled “There is no devil”, or some such similar thing. My instant reaction was “Hey don’t read fiction posing as non-fiction”. She is not normally into reading books and this one was a thick paperback. This incident happened some years ago. I reminded her of it recently when our conversation turned to evil doers and evil people.

I believe that the world survives because of people who mean good and are trusting.

On my own part, if I need some help or favour, I will usually directly ask for it, no beating about the bush and hinting, nor waiting for that person to offer help. This habit of mine sometimes embarrasses people, which I realise belatedly. And then I have to do damage control, by saying it is alright if you can’t do it, or if you can do only this much, that will also be a great help.

This, I am told is because I have a very trusting nature. I also find it very easy to share my problems. If I am having some difficulty, or something is not getting done and I am stuck somewhere, I will share it with someone who is on hand, or standing in front of me. Of course, not to strangers, only with people I know well, I behave in this impulsive manner. Some may thing that “yeh achha hai, apne problem doosron ko de do aur khud free ho jaao” 🙂 :-).

Often, I have found that sharing of problems and issues, lessens the worry and sometimes results in help from unexpected and unknown sources. Any which way resolution of the problem is the end result. Such help from unexpected quarters is what is called divine help.

The world as it is, is running on trust. If trust on the laws of nature and the essential goodness, correct faculties and abilities of fellow human beings was not part of the DNA of humans then there would be nothing happening here on this earth. If this was not so, no one will be able to drive a vehicle on the road, to give an example of a small routine act.

And this is the same invincible trust which makes me type these random thoughts and experiences of life and send them for posting in the blog. I have known it that I have been in the correct place and deservedly the best possible blog, with the aim of categorising the hindi film songs. Eleven years ago, when I discovered this blog, I was under the impression that film music is my favourite pass time activity(after reading). But after all these years of writing for the blog, I am not very sure that it is the film songs or the writing, which I took up in earnest only with this blog, is my favourite activity. May be listening old hindi film songs is my passion and writing about them and other things is my calling.

Where I am going with all this? Not towards any particular destination as such. Only to express the conviction that being charitable and trusting is the natural way of life for human beings. If we are living any other way than it is somewhat an unnatural state to be in. There are people around us who feel insecure at some minor/major level and they behave in a less charitable manner, maybe in some aspect of their lives. Also, there are certain paranoia’s visible around us, which don’t really amount to abnormal behaviour, but they cause a handicap to the personal growth of affected person. Not to say that I have never been uncharitable or less trusting in my life. We all the susceptible to insecurities and paranoias of different kind.

But there is certainly a way to victory out of all this, with the strength of character, belief, trust and faith. These are the things that are required to succeed in any field. Sporting activity is no different, and as we celebrate the excellent performance of Indian athletes in the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics, and a first Gold Medal in athletics, won by Neeraj Chopra, we also celebrate the victory of the individual excellence, collectively with the joy of celebrating the 74 years of independence.

A song befitting the sporting triumph and the assertion of national pride is being presented, from the film ‘Chak de India’ (2007). The song is composed by Salim-Sulieman, written by Jaideep Sahani and the singers are Sukhwinder Singh, Salim Merchant and Marianna D’cruz.

This is a background song in the movie as the women hockey team is readied to participate in the world cup. The character building, confidence instilling and disciplining steps taken by the coach are what pays eventually as each player excels personally, toughens mentally, disciplines psychologically and grows up with the team and then succeeds. True success belongs to the whole team, not to the individual players, not to the captain, nor to the coach. In this years Olympics, eerily, the reel incident replicated in real life, with the Indian hockey team defeating the touted Australian team, in a shocking upset to reach the semi-final.

One song from this film is already posted in the blog:

This blog is an important and valued place on the internet and it is an honour to be a part of it. I dread to be a cause of any mis-happening or demeaning of the integrity of the blog. This space is my karambhoomi, dear diary, sounding board and much more, and I have been open to corrections/suggestions regarding my posts, by Atul ji and Sudhir ji.

While wishing Happy Independence Day to all the readers, I also wish to thank Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, for allowing me to write to my heart’s content. I will be forever grateful and indebted to this blog and all people associated with it, my fellow guest writers, Deshmukh Sir, Kamath Sir, Peevisie’s Mom and Satyajeet Rajurkar Sir (to name a few), and all the visitors and regular commenters. The confidence expressed by these senior historians and accomplished persons in different fields, means the world to me. It humbles me and encourages me to write more and better posts in future.

“Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) was one of two movies that were released on 15 August 1975. “Sholay”(movie 1975) was the other movie. In the earlier weeks, “Sholay”(1975) was receiving lukewarm response from audience, and their makers were very nervous. After a few days of anxiety, the crowd suddenly began to rust into the movie halls screening “Sholay”(1975), much to the relief of their makers.

On the other hand, “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) began to attract house full audiences from the very first day. Unlike Sholay(1975) it was a low budget movie and it began to show profits as soon as it became clear that the movie would not be taken off after one week but would go on and on. There were many places where this movie ran longer than Sholay. In Ranchi, Sholay ran for 14 weeks whereas Jai Santoshi Ma ran far longer.

The music of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became very popular. By now the songs of this movie have become a part of many Indian househlds. This movie is the highlight in the careers of Usha Mangeshkar (as a playback singer) and C Arjun (as a music director). Kavi Pradeep, a lyricist extraordinaire of religious and patriotic songs, got to pen the kind of lyrics he so enjoyed.

“Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) had six songs, including one multiple version song. All songs have gone on to become all time hit songs.

The blog has five of them. Here are the details:-

Song Date of posting (Post number) Remarks
Main to aarti utaaroon re Santoshi maata ki 18 August 2013 (8551)
Yahaan wahaan jahaan tahaan mat poochho kahaan kahaan 11 December 2017 (13802) Multiple version song- Two versions
Karti hoon tumhaara vrat main sweekaar karo maa 11 December 2020 (16089)
Madad karo Santoshi maata 28 May 2021 (16388)

Only one song is left to be covered. Here is that final song. This song is sung by Manna Dey. This is a song of “Hausla afzaai” for Kanan Kaushal, who falls into hard days (as is customary in a a devotional movie. 🙂 )

Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is cpmposed by C Arjun.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, all the six songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This song is the 200th song of Kavi Pradeep in the blog as a lyricist.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films:36
——————————————————

It has been almost one year when I wrote my last article under the series ‘Hindi songs from Bangla films’ on July 23, 2020 in the Blog. There are some more Hindi songs from Bangla films which are yet to be covered. But most of them are those films from which at least one song has been covered in the Blog. So, I kept the series on the back-burner.

A few days back, Partha Chanda ji, a regular visitor to our Blog, suggested me to write on a Hindi song from a Bangla film, ‘Goynar Boksho’ (Jewellery Box, 2013). The song was of my type which I immensely liked it. The synpsis of the film made an interesting reading. These two factors pushed me to write the article forthwith.

In the film, Maushumi Chatterjee has a pivotal role of a ghost who watches three generations of women brought up in a different social status as to how they attach importance to her jewellery box. I had liked Maushumi Chatterjee’s performance of a middle-aged aunt in ‘Piku’ (2015). Another interesting role of a new daughter-in-law in the film was played by Konkona Sen Sharma whose performance I have liked in ‘Wake Up Sid’ (2009). Surely, it was going to be an interesting film to watch with English sub-titles which I did so on one of the OTT platforms.

‘Goynar Boksho’ (2013, Bangla) was produced under the banner of Shree Venkatesh Films Pvt Ltd and was directed by Aparna Sen. The main cast included Maushumi Chatterjee, Konkona Sen Sharma, Saswata Chatterjee, Srabanti Chatterjee, Paran Banerjee, Pijush Ganguly, Aparajita Adhya, Manasi Sinha etc. The film’s story was adapted from the novel of the same name and a short story ‘Rashmonir Sonadana’ both written by Sirshendu Mukhopadhyay, a well-known Sahitya Akademy Award winner Bangla laureate.

In an interview with the Times of India sometime in 2012, Aparna Sen had revealed that she had read the story for the first time in 1993 and immediately decided to make a film on it. However, she could not get the right type of the film production house to finance the film. It took nearly 20 years to find the right film production house by which time, she had become a kind of celebrity film directors of art/parallel films.

The story of the film is as under:

Chandranath (Paran Banerjee) the patriarch of Mitra joint family was once landlord in East Bengal. After partition, the entire family migrates to West Bengal side. The Mitra family stays in a big 3-story house. Being from the family of landlord, none of the menfolk has worked for a living. Obviously, Chandranath’s two sons – Chandan (Saswata Chatterjee) and Chanchal (Pijush Ganguly) pass their time fishing in the pond near their house and visiting their respective courtesans in the evenings.

In the house, the 70-year old aunt, Pishima (Maushumi Chatterjee) who got married at 11 and became widow at 12 in Faridkot, has been deprived of all worldly pleasure, conjugal relationship and good food. She finds solace in her jewellery box containing 5 kgs of gold jewelleries as a part of her ‘streedhan’. Chandranath’s younger son, Chandan gets married to Somlata (Konkona Sen Sharma), a poor girl from an adjoining village. The family’s financial condition can be judged from the fact that the expenses for the wedding are paid off by selling an old Burma teak-wood double bed and an expensive carpet. All the members of Mitra family are afraid of Pishima because of her authoritative and cursing voice. Also no one in the family wants to be in the bad book of Pishima as she holds the jewellery box which the family can inherit once she dies.

One day, Somlata on a visit to Pishima’s room, finds her dead. Knowing fully well that once she dies, her gold jewellery would be sold over time for the family’s sustenance, Pishima turns ghost and entrusts the jewellery box to Somlata with a condition that she should safely keep it in a secret place without any family members knowing it including her husband. Now, the box has been handed over to the second generation. After the death of Pishima, the family members search for the jewellery box but in vain. They also call the police in case the box has been stolen but again police fail to find out the box.

None of the family members can see the hukka smoking Pishima’s ghost except Somlata to whom she bullies just to make sure that her jewellery box is not misused by her. However, due to adverse financial condition of the family, Somlata looks the gold jewelleries as a means of raising capital for her husband to set up a saree shop. For this purpose, she pledges one of the gold ornaments and convince Pishima that once the business earns profit, she would get the jewellery back in the box. Over a period of time, the fortunes of Mitra family improve enabling Somlata not only to get back the pledged ornament but also some of the antiques of the house which the family had sold for their sustenance.

Somlata gives birth to a daughter who grows up to become a college going Chaitali (Srabanti Chatterjee). One day, Somlata shows all the ornaments in the jewellery box to Chaitali who evinces no interest in the ornaments as they are all old style. Besides, she has no interest in wearing gold ornaments. Chaitali has an affair with a boy who is involved in supporting the underground movements in East Pakistan. On the advice of Pishima’s ghost, Chaitali donates all the ornaments to support the underground movements for an independent Bangla Desh. The film ends with a poem recitation-cum-song when the ghost of Pishima merges with the fog over the river.

Maushumi Chatterjee in the role of Pishima – both live and as a ghost, has given a lively performance. Generally, the role of a ghost should bring horror situations. But in this film, Maushumi Chatterjee in the role of ghost, brings comic situations in the film like her hukka smoking, her bullying tactics, the sarcastic comments on the family members, her suggestion to Somlata that like her husband, she should also have an extra-marital affair etc. Probably, the Bangla audience would enjoy more fun from her dialogues which have to be in East Bengali dialect due to her role being a native of Faridkot.

Konkona Sen Sharma as Somlata, the new daughter-in-law, has a contrasting role vis-à-vis Maushumi Chatterjee. She is so scared with the presence of Pishima in the house that she starts stammering. It is much later that a positive bonding develops between Pishima and Somlata. Both of them have a major presence in the film. The superlative performances of Konkona Sen Sharma as well as Maushumi Chatterjee in the film got them Filmfare Awards for the best actress and the best supporting actress, respectively in Bangla film category.

The coverage of the third generation in the film seems to be too rushed up. It gives an impression that the Aparna Sen was in a great hurry to finish the film. Probably, the film had become too long for a non-mainstream category and she therefore may have edited out some sequences from this part of the film.

It is interesting to note that Aparna Sen’s ‘Goynar Baksho’ (2013) was released, on April 12, 2013. After a week, Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Ek Thhi Daayan’ (2013) was released. In both these ‘ghost’ films, Konkona Sen Sharma acted. The story of ‘Ek Thhi Daayan’ (2013) was written by Mukul Sharma, the father of Konkona Sen Sharma and the ex-husband of Aparna Sen.

‘Goynar Boksho’ (2013) has 8 songs of which one song is in Hindi. It is interesting to watch a short Bengali rap song which is sung when some distant relatives of Chandranath visits Chandan’s saree shop to buy sarees for their daughter’s baby shower. The lyrics of the rap song mostly use various names of the sarees. The rap song was rendered by all the actors involved in the scene. All the songs were set to music by Debijyoti Mishra who was the chief assistant to Salil Chowdhury for 14 years and for Ilaiyaraja for 2 years.

I am presenting the Hindi song ‘sakhi ri saawan bhaawat naahi’ which is a ‘biraha’ song rendered by Shubha Mudgal in a Dadra format. The lyricist of the song is not mentioned. As with most of the songs in the film which is played in the background in driblets interspersed with dialogues, this ‘biraha’ song also follows the same pattern in the film. So, it is better to listen to the song on the audio clip for getting its seamless rendering.

This is a sublime song using the minimum musical instruments to give prominence to the singer’s voice. In the film, the song plays in the background when Somlata, on the instigation from the ghost of Pishima, is about to get involved with an extra-marital affair when her husband is away on a long tour.

Sixty-five years have passed since ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955) -JJPB for short – was released. I had seen the film in a theatre in South Mumbai either in 1955 or 1956 (this film had run for nearly 2 years in a single theatre in Mumbai). But I had no recollection of much of the film. It was only after I watched some parts of the film on the video sharing platforms over a period of time, I could connect some scenes from the film I saw in my childhood. The film still evokes interest of the cinema lovers especially of those who relish the classical dance/music.

I am now in a better position the appreciate a bold and somewhat adventurous decision Shantaram took to produce and direct JJPB with the classical dance as a theme. If not handled properly, the theme could have turned the film into a documentary rather than a feature film. It was a high budget film in a technicolour extravaganza. Shantaram’s bold and daring decision to make JJPB has be admired in the backdrop of the following handicaps he faced:

(1) The successive failures at the box office of ‘Surang’ (1953) and ‘Subah Ka Taara’ (1954), both directed by V Shantaram had already put a financial strain on his banner, Rajkamal Kala Mandir. Under the circumstances, producing a film with a classical dance theme which Shantaram had never handled in the past, that too in technicolour was fraught with a huge financial risk.

(2) There were examples in the 1940s when Sagar Movietone made ‘Kumkum The Dancer’ (1940) and Wadia Movietone made ‘Court Dancer/Raj Nartaki’ (1941) with classical dance theme. The results were not encouraging. Both these films failed at the box office putting the financial strains on the respective banners. Eventually, Sagar Movietone had to be merged with National Studio and Wadia Movietone got split between Wadia Brothers and the Wadia Studio was sold to V Shantaram.

(3) It was a high budget film but the lead actors in the film were non-stars – a handicap for the box office collections. The lead actor, Gopi Krishna was just emerging as a choreographer in a couple of films while the lead actress, Sandhya had acted in two Hindi films prior to getting the lead role of a dancer in JJPB. Moreover, she was not a trained classical dancer like Vyjayantimala who had already became a star actor-dancer and had the capacity to attract the crowd in the theatres much higher than that of Sandhya.

Despite these handicaps, going ahead with JJPB showed the confidence level of Shantaram as a director and a master craftsman of the cinema medium. Probably, Shantaram may have felt that with his technicolour film, he was in a better postion to present the classical dance theme than what Sagar Movietone and Wadia Movietone had made in 1940-41. He put Sandhya under Gopikrishna for the intensive dance training for over a year which included training during the shooting of the film as well.

Shantaram was very successful in winning over the audience who had rejected his previous two films. He made the Indian classical dances visually appealing to the audience by presenting them in a hybrid choreography, coupled with the lavish settings. The visuals in Technicolour appealed to the audience. The film became Shantaram’s most successful films on the box office front. More than the commercial success of the film, it was personal satisfaction for Shantaram as a producer-director when JJPB won the National Award and the Filmfare Award for the Best Film for 1955.

Since JJPB was all about Indian classical dances, it was apparent that the songs need to be based on the Hindustani classical music. It is said that some well-wishers of Shantaram including Vasant Desai had suggested him to entrust the music direction of the film to Naushad who had emerged as a star music director in the classical genre after the phenomenal success of his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952). But Shantaram entrusted the music direction to Vasant Desai. It is interesting to note that after ‘Dahej’ (1950), as a music director, Vasant Desai was not associated with Shantaram’s subsequent films, ‘Parchhaain’ (1952), ‘Surang’ (1953), ‘Teen Batti Chaar Raasta’ (1953) and ‘Subah Ka Taara’ (1954).

In his zeal to prove the confidence reposed on him by his mentor, Vasant Desai travelled all over India to pick up the best musicians for his music team for JJPB. In Jammu, he picked up Shiv Kumar Sharma, an upcoming Santoor player who was still in his teen at that time. From Banaras, he picked up Pandit Samta Prasad, the renowned Tabla player. Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan of Indore played sitar for Vasant Desai. In JJPB, Santoor as a musical instrument was used for the first time which later became a part of many Hindi film songs and background music.

After almost all the songs had been recorded, Vasant Desai had composed the title song in raga ‘Darbari’ for which he persuaded Ustad Amir Khan to sing. Ustad Amir Khan arrived at the recording studio for the final rehearsal and recording. At the last moment, Vasant Desai felt that he should get consent of Shantaram before the recording. So, he invited him to the recording studio to listen to the final rehearsal. Upon listening to the rehearsal, Shantaram was unhappy. He called Vasant Desai to an adjoining room and advised him to cancel the recording and suggested to either change the tune or the singer or both. Somehow Vasant Desai, on some pretext, persuaded Ustad Amir Khan to come for the recording the next day.

A nervous Vasant Desai reached home and sat down quietly. He did not know what was wrong with the composition and could not sleep that night. Early morning, it dawned to him that all the dances in the film had very fast tempo and rhythm whereas his tune was in very slow tempo and so were the aalaaps. Vasant Desai composed the same song in Raga Adana in very fast tempo and aalaaps. He rehearsed the new tune with Ustad Amir Khan in the presence of Shantaram who was pleased with the new composition. [Source of this triva on title song -”Journal of SIRC”, Annual 2012].

I am presenting here the much talked about title song, ‘jhanak jhanak paayal baaje’ rendered by Ustad Amir Khan. The words are of Hasrat Jaipuri and the music composition is of Vasant Desai.

The title song became so popular that Ustad Amir Khan used to get ‘farmaish’ in his public concerts to sing the title song. Later, Ustad Amir Khan started singing a much-elongated version of this song (nearly 9 minutes) in his concerts and the gramophone record for the same was released. Ustad Amir Khan sang live the title song of the film on the occasion of the diamond jubilee (60th week) celebration of the film in the presence of the distinguished guests at the Liberty cinema in Mumbai.

It can be seen from the table of 1987 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 21 songs in 12 movies released in 1987. It is the lowest number of songs sung in a year by her after she made her mark in HFM in 1949.

1 song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1987 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 20 songs from movies of 1987 that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 1 movie of 1987 (“Diljala”) has been covered in the blog. So 20 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 11 movies of 1987 are still available for discussion in the blog.

Alphabetically “Aag hi Aag”(1987) is the first movie of 1987 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aag Hi Aag”(1987) was produced by Pahlaj Nihalani and directed by Shibu Mitra for Vishaldeep International combines, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Moushumi Chatterji,Neelam (Kothari), Richa Sharma(W/o Sanjay Dutt), Shakti Kapoor, Danny Denzongpa ,Mac Mohan, Tej Sapru, Om Shivpuri, Geeta Siddharth, Satish Kaul, Jagadish Raj, Pinchoo Kapoor, Yunus Parvez, Akela, Vinod, Chachi, Master Vishal Nihalani, Master Chirag Nihalani,Aniruddh Agarwal etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these seven songs were multiple version solo song in three parts, sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Audio of the song offeres us longer versions of the song. Video versions of the song are only partial. The video tells us that the song is picturised on Mausami Chatterjee. Dharmendra, Richa Sharma Dutt, Om Shivpuri, Shatrughan Sinha, Geeta Siddharth, Chunky Pandey, Neelam Kothari are also seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Since this song has three versions, it counts as three Lata Mangeshkar songs. So three songs out of 21 songs sung by her in movies of 1987 get covered in one post. Only one Lata Mangeshkar song of 1987 was available in the blog till now. With this post, the number quadruples. The year 1987 now has 4 songs out of 21 Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1987.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” is a title that has been used twice in Bollywood- in 1967 and 1989. The 1967 film had a cast of Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Biswajeet etc and had music by Madan Mohan for songs written by Kaifi Azmi. This was directed and produced by Jagdev Bhambri.
The 1989 film had Rajesh Khanna leading a cast of Neelam, Chunky Pandey, Om Shivpuri, Shafi Inamdaar, Navin Nischol and Dipika Chikhalia in a special appearance. It had music by Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. This one was directed by Sikander Bharti and produced by Rajeev Kumar Choudhry.

The content in both the films seem to be different going by the synopsis available on the internet. But I know for a fact that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1989) was majorly inspired by the 1969 Balraj Sahni- Sadhana- Sanjay Khan starrer “Ek Phool Do Mail”. This statement of mine is sufficient to give the followers an idea about the movie, correct? Of course, there were minor differences in the story. In “Ek Phool Do Mali” (EPDM) Sadhana becomes an unwed mother because she is molested, whereas “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (GKC) had Neelam getting pregnant with Chunky Pandey’s child. In EPDM Sanjay was a mountaineer and GKC had Chunky as a racing enthusiast. Rest of the story was same in both the movies. And both movies had melodious songs.

GKC had eight songs with two songs having happy and sad versions. “Tutak tutak tutak tutiya” was very popular when the movie had released and I think it was inspired by some Punjabi folk song; this one had two versions. Another song ‘yeh kismat hai kya, jaanta hai wahi’ also had two versions. The happy version is when Kumar (Rajesh Khanna) is celebrating his happiness with wife (Deepika) and friends. We see that this song is echoing the thoughts that Dilip Kumar and Shammi Kapoor had put forth in this song.

In the second version we have Rajesh Khanna singing out his life experiences, and says ‘ek thokar lagi, toota sara nasha’.

Bappi Lahiri used Mohammad Aziz, Amit Kumar and Sapna Mukherjee (youtube is crediting Alka Yagnik for this song, need confirmation) for this song and Alisha Chinai and Amit Kumar for ‘Tutak tutak tutiya’. Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Sarika Kapoor (another new name, for me at least) were the other playback singers.
Mohammad Aziz who sang the sad version of today’s song would have celebrated his 67th birthday on July 2nd. He was born in Kolkatta. He sang, primarily, in Hindi, Bengali and Odia films plus some Sufi devotional songs and also various genres in 10 other languages. He was also credited as Munna in some movies. ‘Mard’ by Anu Malik was his breakthrough though the 1984 movie ‘Amber’ with music by Sapan-Jagmohan was his debut in Bollywood. He has sung alongside all the prominent singers of the ’80s and ’90s with music composed by RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Ravindra Jain, Raamlaxman etc; even OP Nayyar and Naushad.

Amit Kumar who has sung the duet with Sapna Mukherjee (or it could be Alka Yagnik, as per the tagging on youtube) celebrates his birthday on July 3rd turns 69!!!!! Is it so!!!!! Unbelieveable!!!! Cannot think of some people as aging, right no 🙂

We have enough fans of Amit Kumar on this blog and everyone knows his history, lineage etc. His last film appearance was in the 1989 release ‘Mamta Ki Chhaon’ which was a movie left incomplete by Kishore Kumar-his father. He had acted in many movies made by his father beginning with “Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” in 1964. He won the Filmfare award for best singer in 1982 for the 1981 release “Love Story”.

Here is remembering Munna a.k.a Mohammad Aziz on his birth anniversary and Wishing Amit Kumar many more Happy Returns. May he continue to entertain us. He is launching a special RD Burman tribute on his birth-date on his YouTube channel… looking forward to it

Happy version (Duet)

Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz)

Song-Ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1989) Singers-Alka Yagnik/ Sapna Mukherjee, Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

Happy version

aadmi kismat se kya
lad paayega bolo yahaan
darr ke kismat se ruka hai
iss zameen pe aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
hooo ooooo
ooooo
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hai wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

jitne oonche ho insaan ke hausle
utne oonche mahal uske kadmon taley
ho jitne oonche ho insaan ke housle
utne unche mahal uske kadmon taley

jinki mehenat ke dam se mahal hai khade
unko rehne ko milte hai kyon jhonpde
unki mehenat main ye akal shaamil na thhi
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
uski mehenat mein hogi kahi kuchh kami
warna kya hai jo kar na sake aadmi

aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banaayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

aaj ka aadmi chaand ko chhoo saka
phir bhi dharti ko khushaal na kar saka
yahaan mehenat se sholon pe bhi gul khile
buri kismat se barsaat mein ghar jale
aaa aaaa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa
ye takraar sadiyon se yoonhi chale
magar ho sake na kabhi faisle
ye sach hai ki mehnat se sab kuchh miley
magar jab ye kismat yahaan saath de
na mehenat hai chhoti na kismat badi
hai donon ke dam pe ye duniya khadi
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain khadi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

——————————————–
Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz )
——————————————–

har dua ek baddua
kyun ban gayi,
pal mein yahaan
bewafa kismat bhi,
uthth gaya sar se aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

ye kismat hai karti ajab faisle
yahaan milke sab kuchh
bhi kuchh na miley
bhatakti hai yoon dar-badar zindagi
ke marke bhi insaan mar na sakey
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri

ek thhokar lagi toota saara nasha
ab hai jaanaa kahaan kuchh nahin hai pata
laake kismat ne chhoda hai kis mod par
jo musaafir thha khud ban gaya raasta
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi

“Ek Paheli”(1971) was directed by Naresh Kumar for Asha Movies, Bombay. This suspense movie had Feroz Khan, Tanuja, Rajendranath, Madan Puri, Aruna Irani, Bipin Gupta, Madhavi, Manohar Deepak, Tuntun, Daljeet, Laxmi Arya, B M Vyas, Sndar, Uma Khosla etc in it.

“Ek Paheli”(1971) had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here are the details of these five songs :-

Song Date of posting
Mera tumhaara saath to sadiyon ka saath hai 15 June 2009
Kaahe kartaa hai tu itna shor…tera mera ek rastaa 9 September 2009
Aansoo ki ik boond hoon main 20 December 2013
Main ek paheli hoon barson se akeli hoon 25 September 2020
Ye raat ye jawaani ye botal sharaab ki 9 June 2021

Here is the sixth and final song from “Ek Paheli”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. This song plays in the background with suspense all over the place. We see Feroz Khan, Madan Puri etc hiding behind various places in a Cementry while a mysterious female figure is seem walking around ruins. Unlike most Hindi suspense movies, where the mysterious female figure dons a white sari, here the female figure is in western dress ! That is a bit of a letdown as far as I am concerned. 🙂

The song itself is suitably spooky, hich could be described as a “gumnaam hai koi” genre of song. Suman Kalyanpur has done a very nice job singing it. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

With this song, all the six songs of “Ek Paheli”(1971) are covered in the blog and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog.


Aaja aaja aaja ab to aa jaa (Ek Paheli)(1971) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

koi aahat koi sadaa
jab aayi
dil chaunk uthha
bheegi bheegi palken jhhapkin
mujhse mere dil ne kaha
dil ne kaha
aaja
aaja
aaja
Ab to aa jaa
dhhalne lage hain ujli raat ke dhundhhle saaye
aaja
aaja
aaja

ae mere mehboob e nazar
aa bhi jaa
ab der na kar
khul jaaye na raaz kahin
aa jaaye na koi idhar
koi idhar
aaja
aaja
aaja
Ab to aa jaa
dhhalne lage hain ujli raat ke dhundhhle saaye
aaja
aaja
aaja

dil ki baat adhoori kyun hai
pyaar mein ye majboori kyun hai
janam janam se hum donon mein
aakhir itni doori kyun hai
doori kyun hai
aaja
aaja
aaja

Over the last few days we have had some very wordy posts- wordy in terms of the write up and also length of the song/s. None of these posts were boring, they were educative and informative.

Nahmji’s post was a lesson on Ramadan, Hajj, Umrah, and the pilgrimages to Makka and Madinah and also the protocols being followed in these times of the Pandemic.

This post of Atulji spoke of “Covid 19: Virus and treatment Simplified” as our Avinashji has said in the comments to the post.

In between the two posts we had one by our in-house encyclopedia on his disciplined habits of making handwritten notes about the movies he had seen. In the post he has written a point to which even I subscribe to “Depending on the age of the person, the period of ‘old films’ differs. For an young man of, say 20-25 years old films may mean films which came in the 80’s and 90’s. For people of 30-40 years, films of the 6o’s and 70’s are old films. For people of 45-60 years of age, old films are from the 50’s. Only people in the age bracket of 65 to say 80/85, it is films of the 30’s and 40’s which are old films!”

In addition I was going to mention that the meaning of entertainment and content of the films made in each era reflects the current social scene, problems, and aspirations of the younger generation. This too Guruji has spoken about in this post yesterday.

I have always seen movies with the intention of getting entertained and I love it when there is no logic in what is shown on the Silver-Screen. That is why I like the “RH ka group” and “two jyothis emanating from the eyes of an idol and giving vision to a blind lady” scenes. Similarly I like it when the doctors on-screen say “isko dawa ki nahin dua ki zaroorat hai”. I am sure the medical fraternity must be squirming in their seats when they see the doctors mouthing these words. Same goes for the Police, they are always shown to arrive late at scenes of crime unless the lead actors are playing the cop. But we will focus on the cops of Indian movies in a different post.

The song with this post sees the heroine playing a doctor. She is the resident Doctor who does her rounds, checks on all the patients and smiles lovingly at each one of them (and that should be enough to cure half her patients as her smile is high-voltage). One of her patients has lost his memory in some accident (regular feature in all Indian Movies) and Dr. Sushma (Madhuri Dixit) not only takes care of him but also falls in love with Krishna (name given to the character played by Aditya Pancholi by the hospital) and marries him. Later, the doctor’s friendly Inspector Ranjit Kapoor (Suresh Oberoi) warns her that her husband was set to kill her before the accident and her life may be in danger if he regains his memory. Krishna regains his memory when he has another accident (again normal for Indian Movies) and he again tries to kill the Doctor accusing her of being the cause of his sister’s death. Then the movie follows the usual path of clearing misunderstandings and All Is Well in the end.

This was the plot of “Sailaab” which released 31 years ago in August of 1990. It was a remake of a 1988 Tamil movie which I have seen in the open-air auditorium of the colony where I had lived in the initial years of my married life. “Sailaab” was produced by Surendra Jain and directed by Deepak Balraj Vij. Bappi Lahiri was the music composer of songs written by Javed Akhtar and Anjaan. The playback singers used were Anupama Deshpanse, Amit Kumar, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Sudesh Bhonsle, Asha Bhonsle, and someone called Mangal Singh. The cast comprised of Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Pancholi, Suresh Oberoi, supported by Anand Balraj, Shafi Inamdar, Om Shivpuri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, C S Dubey, Sahila Chadda, Jamuna, Shammi, T.P. Jain etc. I have seen climax of “Sailaab” and must say that it was edge-of-seat experience. The most popular song of this movie won Saroj Khan a Filmfare award for best choreography.

We are having this song to wish Madhuri on her birthday. I don’t think this popular actress of over 70 films needs any introduction. Neither do I need to say that she is a recipient of 6 Filmfare awards and also been awarded the PadmaShri by the government of India in 2008. She made her debut in a Rajshree Productions movie in 1984 and was repeated by the production house in “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun”(1994) a movie that ran to packed houses for 200 days. She has co-starred all the actors (male and female) of the ’80s and ’90s. Then she got married and settled into domestic bliss for a few years and returned with Yashraj films “Aaja Nachle” in 2007. Since then we see her intermittently on-screen and being appreciated for the wide range of characters that she is playing. We also see her on television judging Dance Reality shows.

On to today’s song which is sung by Amit Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is written by Javed Akhtar. Going by the available video it looks like the song plays in parts and these have been uploaded as one whole. This song is almost similar to “tumse milke aisa laga tumse milke” from “Parinda”.
