#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

(The movie – ‘Saaraansh-1984’, and tribute to Singer Bhupinder Singh)

Some movies touch you deeply, pull at your heart strings and get embedded permanently in your very being. It could be due the theme, the direction, or in the majority of the instances, the performances.

A few that have had such an effect on me are BOOT POLISH, MOTHER INDIA, SAHAB BIBI AUR GHULAM, DOST, KASTURI NIVASA (Kannada), MAUSAM, MOONRAM PIRAI (original Tamil version of Sadmaa), MASOOM, NAYAGAN, RUDAALI, BLACK.

The movie that is making its debut on the blog today is one such movie.

“SAARAANSH-1984” where a 29 year old NSD Graduate Anupam Kher debuted in the role of a 65 years old retired School Teacher, moved me to the very core. Kher’s acting and Mahesh Bhatt’s direction was superb in this movie.

Bhatt wrote the story, screenplay (with Sujit Sen), and dialogues written by Sujit Sen and Amit Khanna made the movie an emotional roller coaster ride. Able support was provided by Rohini Hattangadi, Neelu Phule, and Suhas Bhalekar.

Soni Razdan, Madan Jain, Akash Khurana, Alok Nath etc were in the cast.

Produced by Tarachand Barjatya of Rajshri Pictures the other credits of this movie are as;
Cinematography – Adeep Tandon, Editing-David Dhawan, Costumes-Amal Allana, Make up-S. Jayanta, Sound-Hitendra Ghosh, Art Direction – Madhukar Shinde.

The struggle of an old father coming into terms with the greatest loss of his life – the murdering of his only son in New York, his wife’s attempts at finding solace in the rituals and Pundits, standing up for a young woman whom they had taken as Paying Guest (against a local politician and his goons), contemplating suicide together earlier – the events unfold like a ‘tragic poem’ on the celluloid, but without losing hope for the final ‘ALL is WELL’.

Sanjeev Kumar, the thespian (with Sholay, Mausam, Zindagi, and Arjun Pandit, Trishul behind him) was the choice (in spite of Kher having been finalized by Mr. Bhatt) for the role by the Producers. But, Kher’s brilliant performance won him the ‘Filmfare Award’ for the Best Actor. Bhatt and Shinde also won for Story and Art Direction respectively.

The honor at the National Awards went to Naseeruddin Shah that year for ‘PAAR’. But Vasant Dev won the Best Lyricist award for ‘Saaraansh’.

This movie was India’s official entry for the Academy Award for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’. It was included in the Panorama section of the 1984-IFFI. At the 14th Moscow International Film Festival, it was nominated for the ‘Golden Prize’ and Bhatt was given a ‘special prize’.

(At the ‘Filmfare Awards’, the other nominations for the film were for Best Film, Director, Actress and supporting actress- almost all the major categories).

So far for Mahesh Bhatt his movies ‘Arth’, ‘Naam’, ‘Janam’, ‘Aashiqui’, ‘Sadak’, ‘Dil Hai Ke Maantaa Nahin’, ‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’, ‘Sir’, ‘Daddy’, ‘Zakhm’ etc have won him critical acclaim and many were commercially successful too. But to me ‘Saaransh’ is his most sensitive work same like Anupam Kher’s sensitive performance in this movie among his other movies.

Today’s song is a beautifully created and equally well picturised one. Kher, Hattangadi, Bhalekar and Alok Nath are the known faces here. Sung hauntingly by Bhupinder Singh, the lyrics are by Vasant Dev and music by Ajit Verman.

As mentioned earlier, Vasant Dev was given the ‘best lyricist award’ at the 32nd National Film Festivals.

Today is Bhupinder Singh’s birth anniversary (born on 6th February’1940). Surprisingly his voice features in two other favorite movies I have listed above.

This part was conceived on the 18th July’2022 the day Bhupinder Singh left for his heavenly journey and was informed to Avinash ji.

Lyrics noted are as per the audio of this song which is a longer version than the video, and provided by Avinash Scrapwala.

I am grateful to dear Avinash Scrapwala ji for his technical help. I feel lost with these things. He reminded me often, waited patiently and helped to make this post happen. (As mentioned above it was conceived on the day Bhupinder Singh left for his heavenly journey i.e. 18th July’2022, a gestation period of nearly nine months!!!)

Thanks also to all our ASAD friends who constantly goaded me to make a start.

Let us pay our tributes to Bhupinder Singh with this song.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Songs of Bhupinder Singh)
——————————————-——————————
(A tribute to Singer Bhupinder Singh on his birth anniversary)

Today 6th February’ 2023 is the eighty-third birth anniversary of Singer-Musician Bhupinder Singh. He was born on 06th February’1940 and he passed away last year, on 18th July’ 2022.

Had he been alive he would have turned eighty-two.

Bhupinder Singh as a singer has given us ‘timeless classics’ which will remain immortal in the ‘history of Hindi Cinema’. One of my favorite singers, he is also ‘one of my special voices of the decades of seventies’.

There is a long list of my favorites of Bhupinder Singh which I had mentioned in my detailed post on him on the blog on 19.07.2022.

As a tribute to him on his birth anniversary, today I am presenting a ‘lesser-known’ and ‘lesser-heard’ song sung by him from the ‘1978’ movie ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’.

“Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan-1978” was directed by Sikandar Khanna for ‘Amar Chhaya, Bombay’. It had Ashok Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Moushumi Chatterjee, Amjad Khan, Ranjeet, Asrani, Paintal, Shashikiran, Mithoon Chakravarti, Arti, Sundar, Birbal, S.N. Tripathi, Gulshan Bawra, Asit Sen, Leela Mishra, Shivraj and others.

This movie introduced Mala Jaggi and Shobhini Singh.

Helen, Mukri and Dr. Shreeram Lagoo had guest appearances in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.09.1978.

I didn’t get to watch this movie during its first run. I have not watched this movie later either. I guess this movie is not available on ‘online platform’ or perhaps I could not locate it ?

Here is the brief summary of this movie taken from IMDB.

Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions. One: That he marry a woman of Rai’s choice, Shalini, who shall inherit half of the property; and in order for Vishal to inherit all of the property he must re-locate to their farmhouse in a village, cultivate a piece of land, and grow some crops on it within one year. Needless to say, Vishal is enraged at this, and neither of the two conditions are acceptable to him. However, he reconsiders this, and he and half a dozen friends travel to the village, set a comfortable albeit accommodations, and attempt to cultivate the land. Things do not go as planned, as Vishal and his friends are accused of molesting and raping a village belle, which leads to her suicide. His friends, noticing the changed atmosphere, disappear, leaving Vishal alone to carry out the mammoth task of cultivating the land on his own, without help or support, and angry villagers who may expel him from their village. It looks like Vishal is on his way of losing everything he had ever hoped, prayed, and taken for granted.

I have the memories of the ‘mukhda’ of the title song of this movie and the other song familiar to me with this movie name is ‘mannu bhaai motor chali pam pam pam’.

I am not familiar with the other songs of this movie so when I was browsing the movie page of this movie in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) I noticed that there is song sung by Bhupinder Singh in this movie. I listened to this song and like it very much. Today I am presenting this song to you.

Before that we will have a look on the songs of this movie.

This movie has six songs – all written by Rajinder Krishan, and the music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier in 2019.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted on
01 Mannu bhaai motor chali pam pam pam Kishore Kumar, Asrani, chorus 04.08.2019
02 He ilaahi yah kaisi kaisi sooratein…kaisa pardaa hai, jalwaa jalwaa hai Kishore Kumar, chorus
03 Main to … sab khil gaye gaalon pe mere Lata Mangeshkar 03.11.2019
04 Duniya mein sab se haseen, … arey kaun hai kidhar hai kaisi hai Kishore Kumar
05 Jo insaan jitnaa paseena bahaaye… phool khile hain gulshan gulshan Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mann Dey, chorus
06 Pyaar pardon mein chhupaane se kahaan chhuptaa hai Bhupinder Singh, chorus Being discussed in this post

Only one song from this movie i.e. Mannu bhaai motor chali pam pam pam made it to the ‘annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of the year 1979’ and it stood at number 33.

Let us now listen to the wonderful song sung by Bhupinder Singh. (I guess that this song must be played in the background in the movie). I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs including this song in particular.

Only the audio of the song is available.

Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Blog Day :

Nowadays it is happening with me regularly that whenever I come across a new song (newer to me) I check for its movie name, and when I became aware of the name of the movie I check it on the blog. I am under the impression that this movie surely is on the blog. But, when I found that the movie is not yet available on the blog, I do not believe it and keep checking many times in various lists  . The recent such instances is the movie ‘Taxi Chor-1980’ and another one is the today’s movie.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Daasi-1981’. I do not know if I was confusing the movie ‘Swaami-1977’ with ‘Daasi’, but I was surprised to note that ‘Daasi-1981’ is yet to make its debut on the blog.

I landed on this movie ‘Daasi-1981’ when I get to listen one of its songs, not the today’s one, on Vividh Bharati. I was planning to present that song which I listened to and liked, but I am leaving that one for another write-up soon.

This is because this movie ‘Daasi-1981’ has Sanjeev Kumar in it and today 6th November 2022 is the thirty-seventh ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Sanjeev Kumar.

Sanjeev Kumar (Haribhai Jethalal Jariwala) was born on 9th July 1938 and passed away on 6th November 1985 at the age of forty-seven only. One of the finest actors of Hindi Cinema Sanjeev Kumar was the most loved actor by of all our group of friends who grew up in the seventies.

We enjoyed his movies a lot and whenever there was a new Sanjeev Kumar movie released every one of us (friends) were eager to watch it as early as possible and then we used to discuss it a lot in our friends’ group meetings.

But I do not remember to have watched the today’s movie of Sanjeev Kumar which was released in 1981. I was studying in ninth standard then (in 1981-1982). It seems that the movie was also a lesser known or a non-successful movie of its time.

‘Daasi-1981’ was directed by Raj Khosla for ‘Gavrav International Productions, Bombay’.
It was produced by Subhash Verma.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, Vikram, Paintal, Siddharth Kak, Radhika Bartakke, Anita Advani, Sundar, Leela Mishra, Dhoomal, Bela, Meena, Rajesh, Arjan Sahni, Gauri Verma, Pooja Verma and others.

This movie had seven songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Ravindra Jain and Rajesh Roshan.

I will be presenting more details of this movie and its songs in my next write-up with a song of this movie.

Today as a tribute to Sanjeev Kumar we will listen to a song from this movie which is sung by Bhupinder Singh and which on screen is performed by Sanjeev Kumar.

Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Rekha, Moushumi Chatterjee, Vikram and others.

In the today’s song the character in the movie ‘under the circumstances’ is trying to justify his drinking … ‘thhodi sharaab pee loon’. So, I don’t think this song should fall under ‘drunkard’ song. But, incidentally recently I listened to ‘Madhushaala’ after a long time and also some ‘drinking motivational songs’ from Hindi movies. Actually, since many years I am longing to do a ‘compilation’ of all ‘these type of songs from Hindi movies’ 🙂
The today’s song reminded me of the following lines from ‘madhushaala’ …

‘dard nashaa hai is madira ka, vigat smritiyaan saathi hain, peeda mein anand jise ho aaye meri madhushaala’ 🙂 (well sometimes it happens … )

Let us listen to today’s song now and watch Sanjeev Kumar performing as a ‘ghazal singer’ …

Song-Thhodi sharaab pee loon(Daasi)(1981) Singer-Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

Log kehte hain main

apni shohrat se par
main sharamsaar hoon
mujhse poochho agar

girti tooti huyi
ek deewaar hoon

thhodi sharaab pee loon
thhodi sharaab pee loon
ho jaaye kuchh sahaara aa aa
ae doston tumhen kya
ae doston tumhe kya
ye bhi …
nahin gawaaraa
thhodi sharaab pee loon

sur taal bol bhooley
main meet yaad aaye
do ghoont pee liye to
sau geet yaad aaye
sau geet yaad aaye
geeton mein yaad bhar doon
geeton mein yaad bhar doon
dil ka main dard saaraa aa
ae doston tumhe kya
ae doston tumhe kya
ye bhi …
nahin gawaaraa
thhodi sharaab pee loon

(Dialogues not included)

bhoole huye dinon ki
yaadein jagaa rahi hain
shaayad kahin se koi
aawaaz aa rahi hai
aawaaz aa rahi hai
mud kar to dekh loon main
mud kar to dekh loon main
kisne mujhe pukaaraa aa
ae doston tumhe kya aa
ae doston tumhe kya
ye bhi …
nahin gawaaraa
thhodi sharaab pee loon

raste mein thhak gaya hoon
manzil se door hoon main
saahil hai door mujhse
saahil se door hoon main
saahil se door hoon main
toofaan ko banaa loon
toofaan ko banaa loon
main doob kar kinaaraa aa
ae doston tumhen kya aa
ae doston tumhe kya

nahin gawaaraa
thhodi sharaab pee loon
ho jaaye kuchh sahaara aa
ae doston tumhen kya
ye bhi …
nahin gawaaraa
thhodi sharaab pee loon

Music is an irresistible thing. It energizes the soul and is a great stress buster. Indian film music especially is very enchanting and melodious to listen.

Years back, during the age of black and white movies, there was not much variety in music. If you listen to old Hindi songs, you will find almost the same beats. The music was simple, yet it was very melodious. Singers like Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh, Lata and Asha were simply outstanding and still their magic is alive.

Although the times have changed and so is the pattern of music. There are varieties of music such as pop, rock, jazz and many more. But still if you compare a new old Hindi song (from 70s and 80s) with any of the latest ones, you will of course find a huge difference. New Old Hindi songs, though outdated, are still most demanded by the people.

The greatest appeal of the 70s is that it combines the simple and casual comfort of pop culture with the elaborate razzmatazz of disco combined with the introduction of electronic instruments and melodious compositions.

The new old retro music of 70s and 80s has done wonders in the Hindi film Industry in those times. These ‘New Old Hindi film songs’ are still favorites and not just among people of old age but also among youngsters. This is because of the fact that New Old Hindi songs used to have more voice transitions and high and low notes which makes their performance more appealing to the listeners. The New Old Hindi songs are always in, unaffected by latest ones.

Now what draws us to the swinging 70s is its rare combination of simple retro chick and disco dazzle. The decade in which women asserted their individuality through carefree dressing. An era when macho men wore florid shirts with broad collars. A time frame that broke out of the formal dress code to celebrate casual style and then climaxed the ‘me-decade’ as it was the beginning of ‘anything goes’ culture and a form of self-expression.

It was a period of ‘paradigm shift’ as far as the Bollywood heroine is concerned. Gone was the demure, submissive leading lady of the 60s and in stepped the empowered, modern heroine of the 70s.

Early 70s heralded with Mumtaz popularizing diaphanous fabrics and layered saris. Sharmila Tagore’s elaborate bouffant, arched eyebrows and Cleopatra-like winged eyeliner became her signature style. The mid-70s witnessed the simple and conservative chick of Hema Malini and Jaya Bhaduri.

The late 70s showcased the emancipated, modern woman whose clothes and accessories reflected her Westernized persona. The pleasantly plump form of a heroine morphed into the slim and lanky hippie look. Svelte Parveen Babi popularized the dancer’s leotard and body suit. ‘Bobby’ launched sweet 16, Dimple Kapadia dressed in true American High School style togged in miniskirts, bikini, hot pants and crop tops.

As for the Bollywood heroes of 70s , mixed era of romances and action flicks – saw a lot of variety from silk-lungi -kurtas and Guru Shirts favored by Rajesh Khanna and hardy denim jackets and bell bottom jeans ported by Amitabh and Dharmendra.

The first half of 70s was ruled by Rajesh Khanna and the latter half by Amitabh Bachchan, romances and then violent vendetta films.

And last but not the least, the 70s gave us excellent and retro songs and mega hits like ‘Sholay’, ‘Bobby’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Deewaar’ etc.

Here I leave you with my above thoughts to take you to today’s entertaining song. The song is sung mainly by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle but voices of RD Burman and Bhupinder Singh also figure in chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and music is trademark RD Burman.

The song is picturised as a party dance song on Shashi Kapoor, Leena Das, Sarita, Sujata and many others.

Lyrics of the song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 98
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 22 September 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6695 Jeet jyot tez chamak raha hai Amar Jyoti (1936) 8 songs out of 11 songs covered by now

Today 19th of August 2022 is the third ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of the legendary music director Mohammed Zahur “Khayyam” Hashmi Saab, whom we fondly know as Khayyam Saab.

He was born on 18th February 1927 in a village Rahon in the District of Jalandhar – Punjab.

From Jalandhar he came to Delhi and from Delhi to Lahore to Mumbai again back to Lahore and finally to Mumbai to start his career in Hindi Films in 1948. He started his musical career as a Singer first, singing a duet in the movie ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (1947) with Zohrabai Ambalewali. And later got his first assignment to compose music for the movie ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1948).

As per the statistics given in the book ‘Khayyam – The Man – His Music’, researched, compiled, and edited by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee, since 1948 to 2007 Khayyam Saab composed music for 55 movies (released) for 321 songs. As many as 17 movies where he composed music for 60 songs were not released for various reasons. Some of them were shelved and were not completed.

He had also given music to 194 non-filmy songs composed for various albums including patriotic songs and others. He also composed music for 8 TV serials composing 45 songs.

On our blog we have so far covered 201 songs composed by Khayyam Saab.

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Tere Shahar Mein’ (1986) in which Khayyam Saab was the music director.

‘Tere Shahar Mein’ was directed by for Sagar Sarhadi for Mahesheka Films Pvt Ltd., Bombay. It was produced by SS Broca. It had Naseeruddin Shah, Smita Patil, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Dipti Naval, Marc Zuber and others.

This movie had four songs composed by Khayyam Saab. Two songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Bashar Nawaz and Amir Minai had penned one song each. [Source for this detailed information is the book ‘Khayyam- The Man-His Music’ by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee.]

I guess that this movie was not released at all. Because very less information is available about the movie and video of the songs or others is not available. The ‘Hindi Filmography – 1986-2000’ mentions only the names of the Producer, Director, and Music Director for this movie title.

But luckily audio of the songs from this movie is available. I came across today’s song only few months back and loved it very much. The song is a gem of song but very less heard.

Today’s song is sung by Singer Bhupinder Singh.

Lyricist for this song is Bashar Nawaz. Incidentally yesterday, 18th August was his birth anniversary. Here is a brief about him taken from ‘Wikipedia’.

Bashar Nawaz (18 August 1935 – 9 July 2015) was one of the prominent progressive Urdu Poet, critic, and lyricist, who penned the song “Karoge Yaad To” in the film ‘Bazaar’ (1982). He picked up the ‘Pulotsav Samman’ and ‘Ghalib Award’ for his contribution to Urdu literature.

He had written lyrics for a few Hindi films such as ‘Bazaar’, ‘Lorie’ and ‘Jaan e Wafa’. Ghulam Ali, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Aziz, Asha Bhosle, Talat Aziz, Bhupinder, and Mehdi Hasan among others have given voice to his ghazals.

He also wrote 13 episodes of the TV serial ‘Amir Khusro’, which was telecast on Doordarshan in 1983. Bashar also penned 26 episodes of the musical opera ‘Saare Jahan se Accha Hindustan Hamara’, which was broadcast by All India Radio. He scripted a serial on Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, which was televised on Doordarshan in 2000.

Nawaz’s poems have been translated into Marathi, Hindi, Punjabi, and Kannada and published in journals and anthologies. As many as ten of his poems have been translated into English by Zaheer Ali. Anwar Saeed from Pakistan has made special mention of Bashar Nawaz in his book ‘Short History of Urdu Literature’. His ghazals and poems have been included in almost all the anthologies of best Urdu poetry from 1960 onward, said noted Urdu poet Khan Shamim. On 9 July 2015, Bashar Nawaz died at the age of 79 in Aurangabad (Maharashtra).

Let us now listen to the today’s lovely song sung by Bhupinder Singh and composed by Khayyam Saab. Lyrics are written by Bashar Nawaz as mentioned above.

With this song the movie ‘Tere Shahar Mein’ makes its debut on the blog.

Our tributes to Khayyam Saab !!!
His immortal compositions will live forever and will continue to mesmerize the coming generations with the magic of his music !!!

भूले बिसरे कई अफसाने सुनाने आया
भूले बिसरे कई अफसाने सुनाने आया

कोई दस्तक सी हुई

कोई दस्तक सी हुई

फिर कोई दर्द ए मुहब्बत को जगाने आया
फिर कोई दर्द ए मुहब्बत को जगाने आया

भूले बिसरे

महकी महकी सी हैं

महकी महकी सी हैं
कुछ आज फ़ज़ाएं दिल की
फूल ही फूल कोई जैसे

निगाहों में सितारे ले कर
फिर से राहों में
कोई दीप जलाने आया
फिर से राहों में
कोई दीप जलाने आया
बाद इक उम्र के
फिर चाँद सिरहाने आया
भूले बिसरे

कोई झोंका है वो खुशबू का
जो सहन ए दिल में
कोई झोंका है वो खुशबू का
जो सहन ए दिल में
इक मुसाफिर की तरह रात बिताने आया

Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 9 # Bhupinder Singh #

———————————————–———————————–——————

[Author’s Note : It is very unfortunate that this article which was in making with me since a very long time is being posted at a time when the ‘legendary voice’ discussed in this article has left us for it’s heavenly abode. . .
I would like to present it as it is where I stopped last and was supposed to add about the biographical information to finish this article. However, I will try to come back in future to present another article having the biographical information of this singer.]

Welcome all to this article where I will be taking you all down memory lane with the voice of Bhupinder Singh.

I am sure this name will immediately fill your minds with those many memorable songs and nostalgia associated with it. We all know this song “Naam Gum Jaayega. . . Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” and we also know the two voices in this song. And there have been albums/programs using the tag-line “aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” or “meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” from this song, for various compilations. And very naturally mostly they were identified or are related with the legendary female voice in this song which is of the ‘legend’ Lata Mangeshkar ji.

However, for me or maybe I can say that for few or many like me, we also remember this song mainly for the male voice in this song which is Bhupinder Singh ji. . . And again, for people like me (I am sure there must be many) this ‘aawaaz hi pehchaan hai’ is the ‘pehchaan’ of the ‘aawaaz’ and the name Bhupinder Singh.

I don’t know where it did start that I fall in love with this ‘gunguni’ aawaaz (as said by Khayyam Saab) which for me is ‘a voice which has pain and compassion’ and yes, it did have a ‘soothing effect’ too. If I try to recollect it now, I remember that I must have watched this movie ‘Kinaara’ (1977) around 1979-80 in our colony club during the weekly screening of movies there.

Among other songs from this movie this song “Naam Gum Jaayega” was the song easily touching the hearts, and not only touching but constantly growing on one’s mind, and it was also a popular song in those days (if I am correct).

But, I think, before that it was “Dil Dhoondhta Hai Phir Wahi Fursat Ke Raat Din (happy version) which I always think I must have listened frequently on radio and especially during the summer vacations when we used to sleep in the courtyard during every summer season in those years… and from this song itself these lines ya garmiyon ki raat jo purwaayiyaan chalen have been connected to my mind with garmi ki chhuttiyaan aur aangan mein letna. . .

And may be after that it was “Do Deewaane Shahar Mein, which is purely nostalgic for me and I like this song very much. This song has been a continued favorite of mine over all these years and whenever I have listened to it, its ‘magic’ on me has been the same effect each and every time – whatever we consider – be it the lyrics, the composition or its singing by Bhupinder Singh and Runa Laila. (For this one song specially and very few other songs, (I think she has very few in HFM), Runa Laila’s voice is one of the voices that I had in my memory, and which also is a part of this series).

During those years may be, I had listened “Sainyya Bina Ghar Soona“, “Ye Paudhe Ye Patte … Man Kahe Main Jhoomoon“, “Rangmahal Ke Dus Darwaaze… Sainyya Nikas Gaye” which got permanently embedded in my memories connected with childhood days. And these songs thereafter became part of my ‘nostalgia’ of those years.

When I started collecting cassettes, I was always looking for these songs for my collection and except the song from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ the other two were very difficult to find and I got them much later when we landed in ‘net-yug’.

I remember I watched ‘Maasoom’ after I passed out my matriculation exams in 1983 and among other songs from this movie I did also like the song “Huzoor Is Kadar Bhi Na Itraa Ke Chaliye“.

Around the same time as I was growing my fascination for Rajesh Khanna movies, and I had become a Rajesh Khanna fan I came to know about this lovely song from ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) “Rut Jawaan Jawaan“.

Then In 1985-1986 I had bought the movie album by T-series for my cassette collection, and I became aware of this song “Yaaro Neelaam Karo Susti” because of the album of the movie ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970).

In mid-eighties, there was this album from HMV, which was a compilation of songs of Bhupinder Singh from films and titled as ‘Karoge Yaad To’ (if I am not wrong), however this cassette has been misplaced somewhere from my collection. Through this album I got introduced to many of his gems which I had not listened earlier, viz.

Mere ghar aana aana zindagi

Thodisi zameen thodaa aasmaan

Koi jab se sharik e caravan hai’

Karoge yaad to

Gulaab jism ka yoonhi nahin khilaa hoga

Ek hi khwaab kai baar dekha hai maine

I still remember that this song “Kisi Nazar Ko Tera Intezaar Aaj Bhi Hai” from the 1985 movie ‘Aitbaar’ had become very popular then and heard frequently on radio and cassette players. I remember I bought the above album from Nehru Place market in New Delhi in one of my official visits there.

But I was always well aware of the song “Hoke Majboor Mujhe” from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), since my childhood days, may be because of my parents and their love for music. This song was played on radio frequently. When I grow up, I got to listened to it frequently on music programs on radio especially in the program of ‘All India Radio’s Urdu Service’. I had bought the cassette of ‘Haqeeqat’ during my stay at Kota from 1988-89 onwards.

When I get associated with this blog, I had shared lyrics of some of the above-mentioned songs and later I had also shared the following songs with articles.

Zindagi phoolon ki nahin, phoolon ki tarah mehki rahe ae’

Koyi jab se shareeq e kaarvaan hain’

Zehar detaa hai mujhe koyi dawaa detaa hain’

Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin’

Nayi umr ke naye sitaaron’

Raat banoon main aur chaand bano tum’

Sooliyon pe chadhke choome aaftaab ko’

Ahl e dil yoon bhi nibhaa lete hain’

Ye zindagi hai chaar pal’

 Listening to the songs sung by Bhupinder Singh has always given me immense pleasure and calmed my mind during various situations in life. It is like applying the ‘spiritual balm’ on one’s wounds. Also, I think that his voice is like a ‘equilibrium’ – always balanced. In happy situations neither you go jumping with his songs and similarly in sad songs you didn’t start crying. It balances the ‘mood’ whatever you are in, and it motivates to move forward from that point of time. It inspires.

Khayyam Saab had mentioned Bhupinder Singh’s voice as ‘a meethhi gunguni awaaz’ and Gulzar Saab said this unki aawaaz ka agar taabiz ban sakta to main zaroor banaa ke pehan leta’.

What to say … such a magical voice has left us now forever.

And readers will note that I have only mentioned about his voice in above write up. We should not forget that he was also an ‘ace instrumentalist’. Naushad Saab had said about Bhupinder Singh that nobody could come to closer to him in performing on guitar.

Bhupinder Singh has been instrumental in many unforgettable hits of HFM where he has played guitar in the songs. There are over three hundred songs where he has performed Guitar. I am not going to list the songs where he played the guitar. Not only Guitar but he also played ‘wood rubaab’. (I am not sure if he played rubaab in film compositions too).

Then there is altogether separate identity of Bhupinder Singh which is as a ‘Ghazal Singer’. That will also require another separate post and I am not going to discuss this in today’s post.

In the recent months I have regularly listened to his many songs and many non-film songs too since I want to finish this write-up. I came across many songs which I wish to bring here on the blog in the future.

I would also like to mention one of his songs which is very close to my heart and which is from the album ‘Karadi Katha – Bandar Bindaas Bandar’, the song is “Ae Dost Bahadur Dost Mere”.

Then here is a link of the song which also I came across in recent past — “Moko Kahaan Dhoondhhe Re Bande

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ (1974) which is written by Yogesh. This song is sung by Bhupinder Singh and is also composed by him. Yes, I think this was the first and last time when he composed a music for a Hindi Film.

So, today on the blog, we introduce music director Bhupinder Singh Soni (or Bhupendra Soni as mentioned in HFGK).

‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for Cine Guild, Bombay. It had Kabir Bedi, Prema Narayan, Gulshan Arora, Poornima, Sudhir, Shah Agha, Mukesh Bhatt, Soni, Randhir Raj, Viju Khote, Kirti Kumar, Sundar, Uma Dutt, Mac Mohan, and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board (after many ‘cuts’ as mentioned by Bhupinder Singh himself in his ‘exclusive interview’ (link given below)) on 13.08.1974 with an ‘A’ certificate (or restricted viewing certificate).

This movie has four songs written by Yogesh and composed to music by Bhupinder Singh. This movie is making its debut on the blog today.

 

Our tributes to our beloved Bhupinder Singh!!!

unki aawaaz hi pehchaan hai … aur sadiyon tak yah pehchaan rahegi …

yah aawaaz is kaainaat mein goonjti rahegi, gungunaati rahegi, gaati rahegi …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahen nahin ham dahr ke liye. . .

zindagi phoolon ki nahin
phoolon ki tarah
mehki rahe ae. . .

Song – Har Ek Saans Hai Mehmaan Kuchh Pehar Ke Liye (Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain) (1974) Singers – Bhupendra, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhupendra

Lyrics 

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans. . .

qafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena aa
kafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena
haseen ab ye nazaarein hain
bas nazar ke liye
har ek saans …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahe nahin ham dahr ke liye

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye

हर एक सांस है
मेहमान कुछ पहर के लिए
हर एक रात बनी है
यहाँ सहर के लिए
हर एक सांस है॰ ॰ ॰

कफ़स में रह के
बहारों से क्या हमें लेना
कफ़स में रह के
बहारों से क्या हमें लेना
हसीन अब ये नज़ारे हैं
बस नज़र के लिए
हर एक सांस है॰ ॰ ॰

हमारे बाद भी
आएंगे लोग जाएंगे
हमारे बाद भी
आएंगे लोग जाएंगे
तो क्या हुआ जो
रहे नहीं हम दहर के लिए

हर एक सांस है
मेहमान कुछ पहर के लिए
हर एक रात बनी है
यहाँ सहर के लिए
हर एक सांस है॰ ॰ ॰

Blog Day :

5047 Post No. : 16960

Today 13th May’2022 is the seventy-sixth birthday of Shri Bishwanath Chatterjee compiler of Hindi Film Geet Kosh Vol-V (1971-1980). Those who have the copy of this Geet Kosh would have read about his brief introduction on the cover page no.2 of this Geet Kosh.
He has also been a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for HGK Vol-I to Vol-IV etc. and a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for the ‘List of Hindi Films (Talkie) – 1931-1987.

He has also been a co-author/co-editor with Vishwas Nerurkar for the books on Khayyam Saab, Kishore Kumar, Vasant Desai and Sudhir Phadke.

Here is a brief about him as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) by Devi Shankar Kanojiya and other details which Shri Chatterjee shared with me. (Devi Shankar Kanojiya a family friend is younger to Bishwanath ji by five years and settled at Kanpur now. He was earlier working in Telecom department of Government of India.).

Bishwanath Chatterjee was born on 13th May’1946 at Nagpur. He is born and brought up at Nagpur only. After his studies he joined the Department of Audit & Accounts (Postal). (This department was later bifurcated in two i.e., Accounts and Audit being separate departments.)
His first posting was at Jaipur (for Jaipur circle) where he stayed for one year i.e. 1970-1971. His next posting was at Bhopal where he stayed till 14.05.1980 and was transferred to Nagpur w.e.f.15.05.1980.
He retired in May’2006 as Director of Accounts (Postal) and now settled in Nagpur. He has a daughter who is happily married and stays abroad with her family. She has a son.

It so happened that around 1966 Bishwanath ji got interested in Hindi Film Music, or rather the HFM attracted him so much that after two years i.e., around 1968 a thought to compile the details of all songs till date, then stems in his mind.
However, in absence of sufficient and required resources he had to suppress the idea temporarily but a strong urge to have such a compilation has already taken deep roots in his mind.
In ‘1975’ he got to know about Harmandir Singh Hamraaz ji through the weekly ‘Screen’ and came into contact with him. He came to know that Hamraz ji was also working on a similar project and in fact almost 50% work of compiling such information has been completed by Hamraz ji till then. So he decided to support full heartedly to Hamraaz ji. And he has been instrumental in preparing the ‘manuscript’ for the first four volumes of ‘Geet Kosh’ and after that he independently compiled the ‘Geet Kosh – Vol-V’.

He also accompanied Shri Hamraaz ji in extensive travels to places like Bombay, Poona, Indore, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Calcutta, for gathering information and meeting various film personalities and film connoisseurs to get accurate information as possible.

In between, in the year of 1975 he founded ‘Saurabh Radio Shrota Sangh’ at Nagpur and also published ‘Saurabh-1977’ (as a co-editor). But due to economic constraints he had to discontinue this publication.

Shri Chatterjee has been a ‘passionate’ student of Hindi Film Music and has keen interests in Hindustani Classical Music. He has his own library consisting of lot of books about films and Geet & Ghazals.

I got a chance to meet him once during my stay at Nagpur in 2015-2017, where our regular reader Shri Avinash Shravane was also with us. It was a ‘film screening’ program by ‘Cine Montage, Nagpur’.
I left Nagpur on 09.03.2017 and since then I am in touch with him on phone-calls. As very rightly mentioned by Shri Kanojiya ji, Bishwanath ji is very humble, generous, enthusiastic and extremely sensible person.

Yesterday evening when I called him he was very happy and enthusiastic as ever. We discussed many topics and shared our thoughts too.

Once again I wish him a very happy birthday today, and a healthy and peaceful, yet’ full of music’al life ahead.

When I think about him I find the today’s song perfectly fit for this occasion as the ‘fragrance of his works and words – in the form of ‘Geet Kosh’ will be there forever –spreading the ‘spring’ of ‘nostalgia and memories’ for generations together.

‘Zindagi phoolon ki nahin
Phoolon ki tarah aa aa mehki rahe ae …’

Today’s song is from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Griha Pravesh’.

‘Griha Pravesh’ was directed by Basu Bhattacharya.

Basu Bhattacharya was also the writer and producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Shamila Tagore, Sarika, Master Bittoo, Sudha Chopra, Manik Dutt, Vimal Joshi, Raj Verma, Nandlal Sharma, R.S. Chopra, Satay Bannerjee, Shashi Jain, Tarun Mujherjee, Nilesh, Khoka Mukherjee, Danny, Master Bharat, and Nitin Sethi.
Dinesh Thakur, Priya Darshini, Ranjan, Devendra and Gulzar made a friendly appearance in this movie.

Script of this movie was written by Gulzar and Basu Bhattacharya.
Editing of this movie was done by Om Prakash Makkar.
Dialogues of this movie were written by Gulzar, and he also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Yesudas, Sulakshana Pandit, Chandrani Mukherjee, Pankaj Mitra, and Bhupendra had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kanu Roy.

Today’s song is sung by Bhupendra Singh and is a background song in the movie. It happens when the titles of this movie are rolling down.

Lyrics are by Gulzar and music is composed by Kanu Roy.

(I had noted this song more than five years back during my stay in Kenya and had earlier saved it for a special post.
Later on our dear Prakash ji had also sent the lyrics for this song with other remaining songs of this movie.).

Hullo Atuldom

“Trimoorti” (1974) was produced and directed by Rajendra Bhatia. It had a cast of Parveen Babi, Kanchan Mattoo, Arpana Choudhary, Sanjay Khan, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani, Achala Sachdev, A.K. Hangal, Arvind Trivedi, Gulshan Bawra, Krishnakant, and I.S.Johar, Parveen Paul, Keshto Mukherjee, Sarita Joshi etc. Its music director was Rahul Dev Burman and Gulshan Bawra was the lyricist.

The blog has this song which was posted in 2017 on Parveen Babi’s anniversary.
I was reminded of this movie when I saw one of its song on some channel. The song had Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan uniformly dressed. That made me wonder “what is happening!!!” as actors normally like to standout or look unique etc. I also saw a few other songs and in most of these the heroes are uniformly dressed. I haven’t seen the movie but I presume there must be an element of comedy in it if the song with this post is an indication. It has Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan pampering their mother in the voices of Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar and Bhupinder.

4th January is the remembrance date of Panchamda, a.k.a. Rahul Dev Burman. 3rd January was the 81st birthday of Sanjay Khan and 1st january was the 82nd birthday of Govardhan Asrani known popularly as Asrani. This post wishes Sanjay Khan and Asrani (belated) wishes health and happiness on their birthdays and thank RDB for giving us years of happiness with his music.


Song-Achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa (Trimurti)(1974) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-R D Burman
Kishore Kumar + Bhupinder Singh
Kishore Kumar + Bhupinder Singh + Nitin Mukesh

Lyrics

achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa
o maa o maa
achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa
o maa o maa
duniya bhar ki khushiyaan humko dene waali
o maa o maa

achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
o maa o maa
o maa o maa

toone jaag jaag ke raaton mein
humen meethhi neend sulaaya hai
teri mamta ke saaye ne humen
sardi garmi se bachaaya hai

har haal mein ye ghar swarg lage
ye to maa teri maaya hai

o maa o maa
o maa o maa
achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
o maa o maa

maara jo kabhi galti pe humen
humse dukh zyaada tujhko hua

hum aansu baha ke chhup ho gaye
lekin maa tera man roya

aisi mamta ki moorat ki
jeevan bhar karte rahe pooja
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
duniya bhar ki khushiyaan humko dene waali maa
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
