Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 29
————————————————

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Dil Ka Nazraana Le O Dildaar Le” – this was the debut post of the 1973 movie “Chalaak” which was directed by someone called RK Banerjee. All these years I had only heard this song. Thanks to the ongoing ten-year challenge series I landed on the post of the song which had been popular in the 70s and is still heard on Vividh Bharti (All India Radio), I learnt that it was a Kiran Kumar – Radha Saluja song, which movie etc.

I landed on that post because of this “Mann Gaaye Wo Taraana“. Now this is another song that was popular on the radio in those days and is still heard sometimes on radio. I learnt that this is a piano song with Alka at the piano and Kiran Kumar in a jeep.

Radha Saluja and Alka are lost to followers of Bollywood and Kiran Kumar has turned to doing character roles or supporting roles since 1988 when we saw him in Rakesh Roshan’s “Khudgarz”. The rest of the cast of this movie comprised of Bhram Bharadwaj, Ajit, Danny, Lalita Kumari, P Jairaj, Gautam Sareen (in friendly appearances) alongwith Keshto Mukherjee, Jayshree T, Jagdish Raj etc. The synopsis of the movie as given on IMDB is

Monica Kapoor (Radha Saluja) lives a wealthy lifestyle in London, England. When she hears that her estranged brother, Kishan (Bhram Bharadwaj), has been killed while traveling in a train, she returns home to India and asks his much younger and drop dead gorgeous widow, Shobha (Alka), to move out so that she could sell the house, pick up the cash, return to London and get married to her boyfriend, Manoj (Danny). She does get to sell the house and compels Shobha to move in with Kishan’s friend, Amar (Kiran Kumar), but Manoj steals the cash and disappears. Humbled by this incident, Monica also moves in with Amar and Shobha, as well as Amar’s younger brother, Chickoo, and ends up falling in love with Amar. She decides to marry him at the Registrar’s Office. When he does not show, she returns home and finds him getting intimate with Shobha. What Monica does not know is that Amar is not who he claims to be but is, in fact, an escaped convict, who is determined to marry Shobha and get her to reveal the secret location of some gold bars.

Looks like it was a typical masaala film (should see it when I get some time).

There were 6 posts on 17th of April 2009:

Koi Humdum Na Raha

Tum Apni Saheli Ko

Raina Beeti Jaaye

Mann Gaaye Wo Taraana

Tera Mera Saath Rahe

Rootha Hai To Manaa Lenge

Of these ‘Jhumroo’, ‘Amar Prem’ and ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ have all their songs on the blog that means these movies have been YYIIPPEEEED! ‘Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo’ has three songs left and ‘Saudaagar’ has two left. ‘Chalaak’ has only two songs on the blog. Here is the third. It is written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Ganesh is the music director. It has playback by Asha Bhonsle.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 28
————————————————

Looking at 13th April of ten years ago, the post score card was six songs.

Ghar Aaya Mera Pardesi Aawaara 1951
Teri Duniya Me Jeene Se To Behtar Hai Ke Mar Jaayen House No 44 1955
Tu Kahan Ye Bataa Is Nasheeli Raat Mein Tere Ghar Ke Saamne 1963
Iktara Bole Yaadgaar 1970
O Neele Parbaton Ki Dhaara Aadmi Aur Insaan 1969
Prem Kahaani Me Ik Ladka Hota Hai Prem Kahaani 1975

Two of the six films represented that day had made their debut – ‘House No. 44’ (1955) and ‘Yaadgaar’ (1970). Of the six films, five are already yippeee’d over the past 10 years. The one film that still awaits all its songs to be posted is ‘Yaadgaar’. Today, we bring to fore the fourth third song of this film, from a total of six songs listed.

Manoj Kumar, having started his career in 1958 with films like ‘Panchaayat’ and ‘Sahaara’, turned a writer and a producer less than a decade later. His first venture was ‘Shaheed’ in released 1965. The film was directed by S Ram Sharma under the banner of KPK Movies, Bombay. Then in 1967, under the new banner of Vishal International, he produced and directed ‘Upkar’. Coming close on the heels of the 1965 conflict with Pakistan, and the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri in Jan 1966, this film rode a wave of popularity on the sentiments of nationalism and social integration, and became one of the major blockbusters of the 1960s. The film also established the image and tag name of Mr. Bharat for him.

In 1970, he followed it up with ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, again from his own banner of Vishal International, another film that is on the same theme of nationalism and Indian culture, further strengthening that image. The fact that the title role he played in these two films has the name ‘Bharat’ helped a lot, of course.

In 1970 came another film that followed in the footsteps of his earlier creations, with the similar socially relevant theme of nationalism and Indian culture. Although not from the banner of Vishal International (the production house was Kunal Chitra, Bombay), the film was directed by S Ram Sharma, an old friend who had also directed ‘Shaheed’ of 1965. As with ‘Shaheed’, the story and screenplay is written by Manoj Kumar himself.

The cast of actors for this film is listed as Nutan, Manoj Kumar, Pran, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Mehmood (Junior), Madan Puri, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Lalita Chatterjee, Asit Sen, Lakshmichaya, Shammi, Manmohan, Paulson, Jayshree, Kuljeet, Renu, Raj Kishore, Harbans Pape, Kirti Behal, Manohar, Naidu, Beerbal, Hansraj, Shrinath, Mohan Jerry, Dubey, Sabeena, Manohar Gosvai, Kesho Rana, Brahm Bhardwaj, Sobati, Aleeja, Genius, Darshan M, Ravikant, Chandra, Mohan Chhotu, Narbada Shankar, and Ramlal etc. One cannot help but notice a set of names that had had become regular in the cast of actors in his films – Kamini Kaushal, Pran, Madan Puri, Prem Chopra, Asit Sen, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Manmohan, Shammi etc.

The theme song of this film is “Iktaara Bole, Sun Sun Kya Kahe Ye Tumse”. The song was a major hit in its time, as the film tried to address the malaise of degradation of social values in the Indian society. The song touches upon a series of topics like population, corruption in routine life, fashion, cold war and deteriorating relations between nations, political leaders, religious dogmas etc. The theme runs in parallel to the romantic love interest between Manoj Kumar and Nutan, touching also upon the class/caste conflict in the society.

This song carries forward this message of class/caste conflict and the desire for social equality. The scenario relates to the class conflict in religion. A number of people are waiting outside a temple, to enter and to worship theie God. But the pujari (priest) at the temple, temporarily halts the entry of devotees into the temple, as the chief patron of the temple is expected shortly. Rana Shamsher Singh (role played by Tiwari) is the rich man who has provided the funding for the temple, and so the temple is known by his name – Rana Mandir. As other devotees wait to enter the temple, a war of words breaks out between Bhanu (name of the role played by Manoj Kumar, thankfully not Bharat, as in ‘Upkar’ and ‘Purab Aur Paschim’) and Rana, which turns into this song that tells about God and his relationship to His devotees. The words tell that God is not necessarily housed in the temple, and that He also manifests Himself in many other locations and endeavors that also involve the poor and the downtrodden of the society.

The words of this song are from the pen of Indeewar, who also wrote the iconic “Kasme Waade Pyaar Wafa Sab. . .” for Manoj Kumar’s ‘Upkar’. The music is by Kalyanji Anandji. This music director duo was the regular MDs for Manoj Kumar’s films – ‘Upkar’, ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Yaadgar’. But come 1972, Manoj Kumar switched to Laxmikant Pyaarelal with his next venture ‘Shor’.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor, the playback singer that Manoj Kumar preferred for himself. Listen to this typical ‘Bharat’ message that helped further strengthen the image of Mr Bharat.

Song – Wo Khet Mein Milega, Khalihaan Mein Milega  (Yaadgaar) (1970) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
Chorus
Tiwari

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapvaala)

aaye jahaan bhagwaan se pehle
kisi dhanwaan ka naam
us mandir ke dwaar khade khud
royen krishna aur raam

dhanwaan ko pehle miley
bhagwaan ke darshan
darshan ko tarastaa rahey
jo bhakt ho nirdhan
ye dakshina ki reet
ye pandon ke chhalaawe
dukaan mein biktey huye
mandir ke chadhaawe
aise hi agar
aise hi agar dharm ka vyaapar
chalega
bhagwaan ka duniya mein
koi naam na legaa
aisi jageh pe jaa ke tu kuchh bhi na paayega
bhagwaan aisa mandir khud chhod jaayegaa
chhod jaayega
chhod jaayega

bhagwaan raana mandir mein nahin
to aur kahaan milegaa

wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein ae milegaa
khalihaan mein milegaa
bhagwaan to ae bande..ae
bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milegaa
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milegaa

dhanwaan jo hai jhoothha..aa
ho ho o o 
shaitaan ke baraabar
aa aa aa aa
nirdhan agar hai sachchaa
bhagwaan ke baraabar
wo dhong mein nahin hai
imaan mein milegaa..aa
wo khet mein milegaa

ganga se bhi hai paawan
ho ho o o 
mazdoor ka paseena
aa aa aa aa
paani na koi samjhe
anmol ye nagina
aise hi paseenon ke nirmaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein milegaa

geeta sunaa rahaa hai..ae
aawaaz mein kalon ki..ee
taqdeer likh rahaa hai
nokon se wo halon ki..ee
mazdoor mein milegaa aa
wo kisaan mein ae milegaa aa
wo khet mein ae milegaa
khalihaan mein milegaa
bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milega..aa
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milega
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milega
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milega

bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milega

आये जहां भगवान से पहले
किसी धनवान का नाम
उस मंदिर के द्वार खड़े खुद
रोयें कृष्ण और राम

धनवान को पहले मिले
भगवान् के दर्शन
दर्शन को तरसता रहे
जो भक्त हो निर्धन
ये दक्षिणा कि रीत
ये पंडों के छलावे
दूकान में बिकते हुए
मंदिर के चढ़ावे
ऐसे ही अगर॰॰र
ऐसे ही अगर धर्म का व्यापार चलेगा
भगवान् का दुनिया में
कोई नाम ना लेगा
ऐसी जगह पे जाके तू कुछ भी न पायेगा
भगवान् ऐसा मंदिर खुद छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा

(भगवान् राणा मंदिर में नहीं
तो और कहाँ मिलेगा)

वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में ए मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे॰॰ए
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

धनवान जो है झूठा॰॰आ
हो हो ओ ओ
शैतान के बराबर
आ आ आ आ
निर्धन अगर है सच्चा
भगवान् के बराबर
वो ढोंग में नहीं है
ईमान में मिलेगा॰॰आ॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गंगा से भी है पावन
हो हो ओ ओ
मजदूर का पसीना
आ आ आ आ
पानी न कोई समझे
अनमोल ये नगीना
ऐसे ही पसीनों के निर्माण में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गीता सुना रहा है॰॰ए
आवाज़ में कलों कि॰॰ई
तकदीर लिख रहा है
नोकों से वो हलों की॰॰ई
मजदूर में मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो किसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ     
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा


भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 27
————————————————

Welcome all to today’s(6 april 2019) post in the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge Series’. The song I am going to present today is, by the standards of the blog, from a very recent movie ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’. And this is the movie falling under ‘Blog 10-year challenge’ today on 06.04.20019.

On this day ten years ago (viz on 6 april 2009), Songs of following movies were posted on the blog:-

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’
‘Jawaan Mohabbat-1971’
‘Bin Baadal Barsaat-1963’
‘Baap Bete-1959’
‘Chhaliya-1960’
‘Chaand-1959’

All these movies except ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ have already achieved ‘Yippeeee’ed’ status on the blog. 🙂

If one look back at the years that have passed by after this movie ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was released, almost ‘twenty-three’ years have elapsed since. Many things have happened during these twenty-three years in my life. I have been through many changes and shifting of places in my personal life during all these years.

My last post was about my stay at Kota-Rajasthan and my fond memories of that stay. My parents were staying at Parli Vaijnath at that time and my journey to home took thirty-six hours consisting of of train-bus-travel and transit time. The route I would take was Kota to Ratlam by broad gauge train. Ratlam to Purna junction or Indore junction, Indore to Akola and Akola to Parli Vaijnath by bus or Purna to Parli Vaijnath by train of South-Central railway.

Once I had even travelled the complete route by Bus. I travelled from Parli Vaijnath to Akola (seven hours). From Akola I took State Transport Bus for Indore (fourteen hours) and from Indore to Kota another state transport Bus (of MP) travelling almost eight hours.

I was a bachelor then. However, this travel and the journeys continued after my marriage and after having two daughters.

I was still at Kota Site when I got married. So, after that my wife was my co-traveller (:) ) and sometimes we were accompanied by my younger brother or my Father to support us in carrying our luggage. My elder daughter became a new member in our travelling team after her birth. In between my wife was alternatively staying with me for few months and them with my parents at Parli Vaijnath.

Finally, the project at Kota was completed in 1996 and I left for Phulpur-Allahabad leaving my family at Parli Vaijnath.

I reached Phulpur on 15th August 1996 and started there process of settling down there and began looking for a family accommodation so that I could bring my family to stay with me.

I was also doing my graduation through an ‘open university (IGNOU)’ then and did not want to change my study centre Kota. The next examinations were falling due in December and for that I was supposed to travel to Kota again. I attended my exams and took the same route to home via Indore. The Indore connection was important because I had my friends there whose friendship was cultivated by me during my stay at Kota as they were working there for a company from Indore.

I would meet my friends of Indore and spend some time with them. I often stayed at Indore for few days, visited nearby places of interests (tourists places) , some famous temples and watched a few movies also (and that might be a subject of an article in future 🙂 ) But this time, my plan was to visit Kota for my examinations and from there to go to Parli Vaijnath via Indore.

I took a luxury bus from Indore to Akola. This bus had video facility. Those were the days when many people among such bus travellers were quite keen to watch movies in Bus and they would even argue with the transporters if the video was not working. I was more interested in sleeping which was much needed for me because of the previous equally gruelling travel by road.

That day (or rather night) they played two movies back to back. One was ‘Ghatak-1996’ and other was ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’. I watched some parts of these moving in my half-sleep half-awoke state. I liked some songs and some part of both movies. I don’t think I got to watch this movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ again though I recall having watched ‘Ghatak’ again sometime later.

Both the movies were highly successful at the box-office and their music particularly of ‘Raja Hindustani’ was very popular. Both movies earned award nominations and won some of these awards as well.

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was directed by Dharmesh Darshan for ‘Cineyug’. It was produced by Alive Morani, Karim Morani and Bunty Soorma. It had Amir Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Johny Level, Navneet Nishan, Veeru Krishnan, Kunal Khemu (child artist then), Pramod Moutho, Mohnish Behl, Tiku Talsania, Farida Jalal and Archana Puran Singh.

Story of this movie was written by Dharmesh Darshan. And he was co-author in writing the dialogues of this movie alongwith Javed Siddiqui.Editing of this movie was done by Bharat.

Lyrics of this movie were written by Sameer. And as per Wikipedia this movie had total eight songs including two multiple version song (where one song was having three versions).

Music of this movie was composed by Nadeem-Shravan. Whereas the background music was given by Surinder Sodhi.
Alka Yagnik, Alisha Chinai, Bela Sulakhe, Kumar Sanu, Sapna Awasthi, Sapna Mukherjee, Suresh Wadkar and Udit Narayan have given their voices to the songs of this movie.

‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ was released (as per ‘wiki’) on 15th November’1996.

This movie had some very good soundtracks and as mentioned by Atul ji while posting the first song of the movie Aaye ho meri zindagi me tum bahaar banke
, couple of them were reminiscent of the music of the seventies.

When I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘ten-year challenge’, I promptly decided to take up the ‘challenge’. 🙂 I noted that this song has a female version to, and so it was a ‘multiple version’ song. I am sending our editors the lyrics for the female version of this song and requesting them to update the same in the post of this song.

Personally, I like this song Aaye ho meri zindagi me tum bahaar banke (both versions) very much. After watching this movie on that bus journey, this song was playing in my mind for the next few days. Another song “Kitna pyaara tujhe rab ne banaaya” was also very good.

And what to say about the song under discussion ! It was an enormous hit. This song was the highlight of the movie for many people.

The movie was inspired by ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile-1965’. If that 1965 movie had a “pardesi” song viz ‘pardesiyon se ankhiyaan milaana’, then ‘Raja Hindustani-1996’ had ‘its own “pardesi” song, viz Pardesi Pardesi Jaana Nahin’- which is the song under discussion.

The ‘pardesi’ song from ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ was a multiple version song having three versions. Not to be left behind, this “Raja Hinustani” song also has three versions. This song plays important role in taking the story of the movie forward. Like when heroine’s father comes to know about his daughter falling in love with a taxi driver, then – when the hero-heroine are separated due to misunderstanding , with heroine’s stepmother sowing seeds of ‘conflict’ further and heroine is also pregnant at this time, and finally third time – in the end when all ends well and the hero and heroine are re-united.

During all those years I had forgotten that this song was a multiple version song with three versions, and the ‘challenge’ hence got compounded for me. I had to listen to this song many times during its drafting. Also, with the female version to the earlier song added this post serve a purpose of ‘four songs’ “)

In the Suresh Wadkar version of ‘pardesi pardesi jaana nahin’ the hero sings couple of lines which in one version is lip synced by the hero and in another version he lip-syncs in Udit Narayan’s voice. Credit for this third version also mentioned the name of Udit Narayan (as taken from ‘wiki’ page of this movie), I think that is correct. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this and correct please.

With today’s song on the blog plus addition of the female version to the earlier song this movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ will have its five songs covered on the blog.

I know you are eager to listen this song again after so many years so without taking this article too long I am taking you to the song instead which itself is like an ‘epic song’. 🙂

To finish the tale, after reaching Parli Vaijnath, I travelled back to Phulpur, with my wife and daughter accompanying me, with my father also travelling with us to help us in getting settled at Phulpur.

We stayed at Phulpur for a few months, before it was time for my wife to rejoin my parents at Parli Vaijnath in what could be described as a “Pardesi pardesi jaana nahin” situation for me. 🙂

The first part of the song is sung by Sapna Awasthi (lip syncing by Kalpana Iyer), Alka Yagnik (for Pratibha Sinha) and Udit Narayan (lip synced by Aamir Khan).
Second version is sung by Kumar Sanu (on Aamir Khan) and Alka Yagnik (on Karishna Kapoor).
The movie ending third version is sung by Suresh Wadkar (for Johny Lever), Bela Sulakhe (for Navneet Nishan) and Udit Narayan (for Aamir Khan).

Let us now enjoy this wonderful, entertaining and rocking melodious 🙂 song.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 26
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day – the score card was six films, and six songs. The songs posted on that day are listed below.

 

Naino Me Pyaar Dole Sheroo 1957
Kaare Kaare Baadraa Bhaabhi 1957
Jab Baadal Lahraaya Chhoo Mantar 1956
Dil Pukaare Aare Aare Jewel Thief 1967
Tumhaari Nazar Kyun Khafa Ho Gayi Do Kaliyaan 1968
Har Haseen Cheez Ka Main Talabgaar Hoon Saudaagar 1973

 

Out of the six films, five films have since been Yippeee’d on the blog. I notice this interesting push for completing songs of a film. It seems that the preference is always to complete songs of films from 1950s and 1960s. Most of the time, when we are searching for a suitable selection for this Ten Years Challenge series, the films with songs pending are most likely to be not from 1950s and 1960s. I think it is a combination of preference for the melody and music of those two decades, plus the availability. On these two counts, the films from 1950s and 1960s would score the highest, and hence their quicker movement towards Yippeee status.

The film from this list, which still has songs remaining to be posted, belongs to 1973 – ‘Saudaagar’. When this film appeared in the theatres, the one surprising element was the lead pair – Amitabh Bachchan and Nutan, plus Padma Khanna of course. Once one got to know the storyline though, the choice would be rationalized. But at first sight, Nutan – a fairly senior lead actress by that time, paired opposite to an almost rank new comer, Amitabh Bachchan, at first raised some eyebrows. Nutan, having made her transition from child role (‘Hamaari Beti’, 1950) to lead actress roles with ‘Hum Log’ and ‘Nagina’ in 1951, had over two decades of career behind her. Amitabh, on the other hand, was just into the fifth year of his career. Having made a debut with the 1969 film ‘Saat Hindustani’, he was still seen as the Babu Moshai (‘Anand’, 1970), an actor in second lead type roles. No doubt, ‘Zanjeer’ also happened in 1973, and that put him on a fast track as an action hero. But when ‘Saudaagar’, and of course ‘Zanjeer’ were planned and were under production, the phenomenal succcess of the latter film was still into the future. At such a time, the casting of ‘Saudaagar’ surely surprised critics and audiences alike.

The film’s story is a sensitive portrayal of a love triangle, in which one side of the triangle is actually a pretense, nay a fraud, mounted by the male protagonist, for a vested interest, which is to finance his betrothal to his real love interest. It is a plain case of a dishonorable deception, which goes way beyond cheating and defrauding for money – it is a devious fraud on the heart and emotions of gullible and vulnerable widow. Moti (Amitabh) is a young trader in gur (jaggery made from the juice of date palms). Majubee (Nutan) is a relatively older widow, expert in making the jaggery from the date juice. The two have business relations, in that Moti collects the juices from the date palms, brings to Majubee, who makes jaggery from it, and Moti sells it in the market.

Phool Banu appears on the scene, and Moti falls head over heels for her. His efforts to gain a bride are thwarted by Phool Banu’s father, who demands a handsome meher amount for the marriage. Unable to procure the hefty amount demanded, Moti hatches a plan in his mind – he decides to get married to Majubee, and save money on the production process of gur, because he would not have to pay Majubee, once he becomes her husband. Majubee is shocked and surprised by the proposal, refuses at first, but then slowly gives in to the cajoling and pursuance by Moti. They get married. At the end of one season of gur making, Moti saves enough to pay the meher for his desired bride. He divorces Majubee, and immediately marries Phool Banu. Majubee is devastated, and completely broken, at being used such by this devious man, who has used her and defrauded her of her vulnerable honor in life.

But the story does not end here. As it turns out, Phool Banu has no inkling of the gur making proces. Her main interests in life are “Sajna Hai Mujhe Sajna Ke Liye“. Moti, unable to now supply good quality gur in the market, loses his reputation, and his business. The affluence is gone, the reputation is gone, and so is the dream of a happily-ever-after life with his beloved. And the story moves further. . . to be dealt with in another post later. 🙂

The film is produced by the house of Rajshree – Rajshree Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay. It is directed by Sudhendu Roy. Besides the three important stars already named, the impressive cast of actors includes Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V Gopal, CS Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadira, Ras Raj, Paritosh Choudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Rai, Jugnu, Chandu Allahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habeeba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, and Baby Shamina.

Geet Kosh lists seven songs for the film. All the songs are created by the lyricist – MD Ravindra Jain. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen, it is performed by Padma Khanna, as she is walking back home from the river banks, after having crossed it on a boat. Amitabh has seen her, and is following her from the boat itself. Of course Padma Khanna, i.e. Phool Banu, is very much aware that she is being followed by this lanky and handsome young man. So she is playing the siren’s role to the hilt. Introduces herself in the song, she tells her pursuer about herself and her youth, and clearly communicates that she is verily enjoying the attention she is getting from him. In a couple of close shots, Amitabh looks very much like a provoked predator, as he eyes this willing beauty dancing for his benefit.

A catchy song, and enticing words. . . both characters are hunters, laying veritable traps for each other. 🙂

Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019)-Song number 25
—————————————————-

This is my First song post for ‘The 10 year Challenge’ series. Today, 10 years ago, on this day, 6 songs were posted. They were 1 song each for films ‘Bahut Din Huye’ (1954), ‘Marine Drive’ (1955), ‘Naag Devta’ (1962), ‘Bees Saal Baad’ (1962), ‘Prince’ (1969) and ‘Lootmaar’ (1980).

From the day it started, I was keen on participating, but everyday that I checked I found films either belonging to the 60s to 80s or films which were already Yippeee’d. I became helpless. Not that I can not or don’t want to write on songs of films of 70s and beyond, but they are not of my liking. Further I like to write only on songs or films, where I have something substantial to offer to our readers.

Finally, I found one film from 1st April 2009, which had some scope for me. The song is from film ‘Bahut Din Huye’. First, out of the 17 songs only 3 songs are posted on the blog and hence lot of choice to choose a song from remaining 14 songs, and secondly, the background of the film, the stars, the producer/director, the company etc were matters where I could elaborate to my will. So, I opted for this film’s song today.

The film is from the southern giant – Gemini Pictures. The film title sounds almost like a translation of ‘Once upon a time…’. It is a very apt title too, because the film is based on a folk tale of south. I like such films made in south and also their mythological films. When I see these films, the costumes of all the actors as well as their palaces etc remind me of similar pictures that used to appear in Chandamama magazines.

Chandamama (Chandoba in Marathi) magazines vied with my childhood craze of seeing films and reading books. Like many of my age group, our childhood had an important segment covered by Chandamama (in 13 Languages, including English and Sanskrit) readings. I strongly believe that  either the south film actors copied costumes from Chandamama pictures or the vice versa, but they resembled each others, for sure !

As expected, ‘Bahut Din Huye’ was a remake of Gemini’s own block buster ‘Bala Nagamma’ from 1942. Gemini Studios was the best known Madras studio in the 1940s for redefining the concept of mass entertainment with ‘Chandralekha’ (1948), the first Madras film to break successfully into the Hindi cinema circuit. SS Vasan started Gemini as a distribution agency, the Gemini Pictures Circuit, distributing and partly financing films by K Subramanyam’s Motion Picture Producers Combine. When the Combine went bankrupt, Vasan bought the studio in 1939 at public auction for a mere Rs 86,427-11 (annas)-9 (paise) (according to Randor Guy). The studio’s début feature was probably Balkrishna Narayan Rao’s ‘Madanakamarajan’ (1941), but it only took off when cameraman-scenarist K Ramnoth joined it along with his Vauhini partner, art-director AK Sekhar. This team made most of Gemini’s early features: ‘Mangamma Sapatham’ (1943), ‘Kannamma En Kadhali’ (1945) and ‘Miss Malini’ (1947) before the ‘Chandralekha’ blitz catapulted it on to the national stage.

In the early days, the most important event in the studio was Uday Shankar’s dance extravaganza ‘Kalpana’ (released 1948) which also provided training for most of Gemini’s technicians as well as providing the model for an Orientalist dance idiom later associated with influential Tamil choreographers like Hiralal and Chopra Master. A few minor hits followed ‘Chandralekha’ before the studio’s second major onslaught on the national box office with ‘Apoorva Sahodarargal’ (1949), a trilingual that established the studio’s dominance in the genre of the costumed adventure movie. Although its Hindi version ‘Nishan’ was not a major success, Vasan continued making Hindi films, often signing up major stars of Hindi films himself: e.g. the Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand film ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955), Vyjayanthimala’s ‘Raj Tilak’ (1958) and ‘Paigham (1959) starring Dilip Kumar, Raaj Kumar and Vyjayanthimala. They also made the mega-budget Tamil classic ‘Avvaiyyar’ (1953). An important later production was ‘Motor Sundaram Pillai’ (1966), Sivaji Ganesan’s only film at this studio. In 1958 the studio expanded into the Gemini Colour lab, licensed by Eastman color Kodak film. After Vasan’s death, his son SS Balasubramanyam produced the unsuccessful ‘Ellorum Nallavare’ (1975). Gemini’s productions declined in the 70s, although it remained successful as a studio and equipment rental business now taken over by the Anand Cine Services.

The unprecedented foray of Gemini’s Vasan’s hit film ‘Chandralekha’ into all India market, Subramaniam Srinivasan or simply SS Vasan, became aware of the unlimited scope of the Hindi belt market for south-made Hindi films. Vasan was a writer, editor, producer and director, but above all, he was a business tycoon. He  established the popular Tamil magazine ‘Anand Vikatan’, and owned Gemini studios, Gemini Laboratories and Gemini distribution circuits.

He soon decided to take advantage of the success of ‘Chandralekha’ and made another tri-lingual film. In Tamil it was called ‘Apoorva Sahodarargal’, in Telugu, it was ‘Apoorva Sahodaralu’, and in Hindi it was called ‘Nishan’ (1949). This film too was a  success. Encouraged by this, SS Vasan made his 1943 Tamil Hit film ‘Mangamma Sapatham’, into a remake in Hindi with the name ‘Mangala’ (1950). Not by coincidence, but by design, the hero for all these 3 remakes and the originals was Ranjan. ‘Mangala’ was remade in Sinhalese as ‘Mathalan’ in 1955 and in Telugu as ‘Mangamma Shapatham’ in 1965, featuring NT Ramarao (later the Chief Minister of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh), and Jamuna.

Enthused and inspired with Vasan’s success in the Hindi belt, another giant from the South came forward. AVM’s Tamil film ‘Vazhkai’ (1949) was a big hit in south. AVM made a Telugu Version of it with the name ‘Jeevitham’ in 1950 followed by a Hindi version ‘Bahaar’ in 1951. They introduced Vyjayantimala with this film, in Hindi. The story of the film and the music by SD Burman made film a big hit in Hindi too. AVM then made Hindi film ‘Ladki’ (1953), with a Tamil and Telugu version. This too became a hit film. However by that time the South market had grown manifolds and there was no need for the south film makers to venture into the Hindi belt to earn money. Thus, there was a slow down in this type of activity. The south now started making Hindi films directly in Madras by calling actors from Bombay. And some films were dubbed too.

The divide between the north and the south went on widening, which finally resulted in the anti-Hindi agitations of the 1960s and 70s in Madras and other southern places. Fortunately, in recent times and with the new generation, thanks to the coalition politics at the centre and states as well as IT centres at Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore, the North-South exchange is much better and each state is identified individually. Thanks also to novels of writers like Chetan Bhagat. And thanks to modernization.

‘Bahut Din Huye’ had a cast consisting of Madhubala, Ratan Kumar, Agha, Kailash, Savitri (debut film in Hindi), Lalita Pawar, Pushpvalli (mother of Rekha), Kanhaiya Lal etc. Ratan Kumar had a big role in this film. Another film of 1954, ‘Jagriti’ also had a pivotal role for Ratan Kumar.

Ratan Kumar’s real name was Syed Nazar Ali (born 21-8-42 at Ajmer, passed away 12-12-2016 at California, USA). He started working as a child star when he was just 4 year old. His first film was Baburao Patel’s ‘Gwaalan’ (1946). He did 25 film roles before he acted in film ‘Jagriti’. He worked in many famous films like ‘Sargam’ (1950), ‘Malhaar’ (1951), ‘Afsaana’ (1951), ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), ‘Boot Polish’ (1953) etc. After doing film ‘Jalwa’ in 1955, he migrated to Pakistan in 1956, with his family, and remade ‘Jagriti’ in Pakistan, as ‘Bedaari(1957) – Urdu translation of the Hindi word Jagriti. This film used the same old tune for a film song in Pakistan, aimed at igniting a similar emotion and patriotic zeal, among the listeners. – “Aao Bachcho Tumhe Dikhayen Jhaanki Hindustan Ki… (come children let us show you glimpses of India), is a popular Hindi film song of the 1950s. “Aao Bachcho Sair Karaayen Tumko Pakistan Ki… (children, let us take you on a tour of Pakistan) is an equally hit song of the same period in Pakistan. The movie ‘Bedaari’ (1957) was produced by his elder brother Wazir Ali Rizvi.

He played a young boy’s role in many Pakistani films later. ‘Naagin (1959) was the first Pakistani film he played a lead actor opposite Neelo as the lead actress. Ratan Kumar’s success, as a lead actor, could not last long because his later films did not do well at the box-office and he eventually faded away.

In 1977, his 4 years old daughter died in an accident in Lahore, Pakistan. He was so emotionally upset after that accident that he decided to quit the Pakistani film industry. In 1979, Ratan Kumar left Pakistan never to return again. In the late 1960s, Ratan Kumar also got into the business of selling oriental carpets and had started travelling back and forth from Pakistan to Europe for this business. Eventually he ended up settling down permanently in the United States after 1979.

Ratan Kumar was living in California, in his old age, and was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia 10 days before his death on 12 Dec 2016. He had a long history of illness, though. In 1996, his lungs had collapsed twice in the same year. When they collapsed the third time in 2000, he was left paralyzed and went into a coma for eight days. Then he recovered in four to five months and became somewhat normal again. His survivors include 2 sons, a daughter and seven grandchildren .

Music for film ‘Bahut Din Huye’ is by a pair of BS Kalla and E Sankar Sastry. Many south Indian composers had tried their hand at giving music to Hindi films in the 50s decade. MDs like Ghantasala, BS Kalla, SD Parthasarathi, E Shankar, B Laxman, Vishwanathan, R Sudarshanam, SV Venkataramana, TR Ramanathan and TG Lingappa are few of the lesser known music directors from south, who composed music for Hindi films. They gave melodious music, but somehow they did not succeed here. One reason could be their use of southern singers, for whom acceptability was a problem here for Hindi songs. Names like Ramesh Naidu, Adi Narayana Rao and the pair of Vishwanathan-Ramamurthy were at least known names here. Their films like ‘Piya Milan’ (1955, MD – Ramesh Naidu), ‘Suvarna Sundari’ (1958, MD – Adi Narayana Rao) and ‘Naya Aadmi’ (1956, MD – Vishwanathan-Ramamurthy) had many popular songs.

The film had 17 songs, 7 of these were sung by Lata Mangeshkar and the remaining were either by chorus or unnamed male/female singers. The lyrics were by Pt. Indra. Let us now hear today’s chorus song and enjoy the song and dance video.

Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019)-Song number 24
—————————————————-
Nowadays, we generally believe that the golden era of HFM lasted from 1949 till 1980 and after that the general standards of HFM fell down several notches, never to recover again.

When I was growing up in 1970s, I felt that this deterioration of HFM had started in 1970s itself. Some of the songs that later were considered classics were regarded by mediocre by me during those days. For instance, the songs of “Do Chor”(1972) were mediocre for me. Song like Yaari ho gayi yaar se lak tunoo tunoo was jarring to my ears. “Sanyaasi” (1974) songs were downright mediocre as far as I was concerned.

Many Laxmikant Pyarelal compositions of 1970s were chaalu to my ears and I did not like them much. I did not like the songs of “Suhaag”(1979) much but today these songs are considered near classics.

“Aas Paas”(1980) songs were very much mediocre songs to my ears and minds. No wonder that I did not watch this movie. The most chaalu and popular song of the movie was Tum jo chale gaye to hogi badi kharaabi. This movie made its debut in the blog with this song. That was on 31 march 2009, viz exactly ten years ago.

The movie had six songs in it, but only one more song from the movie has since been covered. This second song is Hamko bhi gham ne maara which was posted on 6 december 2013. After that, there has been no more covereage of songs from this movie for more than five years.

Now, thanks to the “blog ten year challenge” series, this movie “Aas Paas”(1980) came to the notice of Avinash Scrapwala and he sent the lyrics of another song from “Aas Paas”(1980).

This song, the third from the movie to appear in the blog, is sung by Rafi and Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is omposed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a typical Punjabi style dance song. It is picturised on Dharmendra, Hema Malini and many other male and female dancers in bright colorful attires. harmendra with his two left feet style dancing makes for a sharp contrast from Hema Malini, a dancing exponent.

As mentioned earlier, I had not watched this movie during its time and I was not even aware of this song till now. So this song comes in the blog exactly ten years after another song appeared in the blog. And at the same time, this song comes to my notice some four decades after it was created. So I suppose this can also form some kind of a challenge series, viz – Songs coming to notice forty year after its creation. 🙂

For now, here is this latest presentation under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019)” series.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 23
————————————————

On 28th March of 2009, six songs had made their appearance on the blog. The songs and the films represented are listed below.

 

Man Darpan Hai Dushman 1939
Mitti Se Khelte Ho Patita 1953
Sach Kahta Hoon Bahut Haseen Ho Jaali Note 1960
Chanda Re Mori Patiyaan Le Jaa Banjaarin 1960
Baalamwa Bolo Na Bolo Na Picnic 1966
Yoon Na Sharmaa Phailaade Apni Gori Gori Baanhen Parwaana 1971

 

Of these six films, ‘Dushman’ (1939), ‘Patita’ (1953), ‘Jaali Note’ (1960), ‘Picnic’ (1966) and ‘Parwaana’ (1971) have been yippeee’d by now. The 1960 film ‘Banjaarin’ remains. This film has eight songs in all. Three songs have been showcased here. Today, we bring on the fourth song, on the 10th anniversary of this film’s debut here.

‘Banjaarin’ is produced by Ratan, under the banner of Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The film is a costume drama, directed by Jaswant Jhaveri.  The list of actors reads like Kanchan Kamini, Manhar Desai, Lalita Kumari, Sundar, Indira Bansal, Dalpat, Pal Sharma, Neelu, Shri Bhagwan, Bela, TN Sinha, Saroj, Murari, Paro, Prayag, Rehana, Paulson, Geeta, Chetan Kumar, Malika, Sheela R, CH Singh, Shekhar Purohit, Shriram, and S Chaddha.

The eight songs of this film are all penned by Pt Madhur. The music is by Pardesi – a lesser known artist whose name appears as music director for maybe 4 or 5 films only. The singing voice in this song is Geeta Dutt.

The video clip of this song is available. The clip is somewhat dim, and hence much details or even identification of artists on screen is not very feasible. The song is overlapped with a lot of other action in the film. The song itself seems to be a club dance song, or maybe a villain’s den song. There are a number of artists, but I am able to recognize only Sunder. I am not able to identify the main dancer in this song. Is that Sheela Ramani? I am not sure. I would request our more knowledgeable readers to please help with identification of artists.

The song is constructed well. I am hearing it for the first time today. It sure has an interesting rhythm and beat to it, and it has been rendered by Geeta Dutt with the customary zest. Listen and enjoy.

[PS: I have not been able to decipher two words in the first stanza. I request other folks to please help insert the correct words.]

Song – Qismat Ke Khel Tu Khel Khilaadi  (Banjaarin) (1960) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Pandit Madhur, MD – Pardesi

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 22
————————————————

This day, ten years ago, the songs that we were listening to are listed below,

 

Dukh Ke Ab Din Beetat Naahin Devdas 1935
Antam Fantam Chhod De Babu Hum Sab Chor Hain 1956
Hai Kali Kali Ke Lab Par Lala Rukh 1958
Jaa Re Beimaan Tujhe Jaan Liyaa Private Secretary 1962
Dil Ki Girah Khol Do Raat Aur Din 1967
Apni Aadat Hai Sabko Salaam Karnaa Pyaar Deewaana 1972

 

Six songs were posted, six films represented. Over the past 10 years, four of these films have completed their run of songs – ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958) and ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967).

For the remaining two films, the score card says –

‘Private Secretary’ (1962) – 4 songs posted out of total 7 listed, and
‘Pyaar Deewaana’ (1972) – 2 songs posted out of total 8 listed.

So in preparation for the Ten Year Challenge post for today, as I started to scan the remaining songs of these two films, I had to stop right at the first song that I checked, for I knew it has to be this one today. The song is a stage dance song from the film ‘Private Secretary’. The listing in the Geet Kosh is not fully informative, because the song title listed is actually the lead in verse to the song. The burden of the song comes later, and it was not apparent when I read the song title. But when I played this song – my goodness, I am amazed that a song of this caliber has been lying unnoticed for all these years. That is the reason for the urgency in my mind to post this.

This song was frequently heard on the air waves during the radio listening days, and so it is a very familiar and a favorite song from that time. After the leading verse, as soon as Lata ji starts to croon “O O O Saanwre. . .”, I just sat up straight with surprise – my God, this song, this lovely melody. Not yet posted. Hiding where all these years. And I knew it has to get posted right away.

The film ‘Private Secretary’ is produced under the banner of Radiant Movies, Bombay and is directed by Chander. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Jaishri Gadkar, NA Ansari, Mohan Choti, Poornima, Raja Gosavi, Neelam, Jerry, TN Sinha, Manohar Geer, Raj Kumar, Ravi Khanna, Kashi, CN Kapoor, Athawale, and Umakant. The seven songs listed are all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by Dilip Dholakia. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar.

The song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar on screen, as a stage performance. In the beginning of the song, we can see Ashok Kumar and Mohan Choti as part of the audience. A wonderful song and an equally wonderful performance – the song merits to be on the list of best dance songs.

Listen to this charming melody. And tell me. Did you have the same reaction as I did?

Song – O Saanwre, Aa Ja Pyaar Liyei  (Private Secretary) (1962) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Dilip Dholakia

हमको तो लागे सारी दुनिया पराई
मिलने की प्यास लिए
एक यही आस लिए
बैठी रहूँ मैं सुबह शाम रे
ओ ओ ओ
ओ सांवरे
आ जा प्यार लिए
गाती बहार लिए
के तेरे बिना मोरे नैना हुवे
बावरे
ओ सांवरे

दिल को बिछाया है
राहों में तुम्हारी
जाने कब किस्मत जागेगी हमारी
दिल को बिछाया है
दिल को बिछाया है
राहों में तुम्हारी
जाने कब किस्मत जागेगी हमारी
दिन जाये रात आए
दिल से ना आग जाये
साँसों में गूँजे तेरा नाम रे
ओ ओ
ओ सांवरे
आ जा प्यार लिए
गाती बहार लिए
के तेरे बिना मोरे नैना हुवे
बावरे
ओ ओ ओ सांवरे

Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019): Song number 21
—————————————————–

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Holi!

Some movies have a lot of memories attached to them. Yash Chopra’s “Chaandni” is one such movie. The year was 1989 and I had been to Mumbai (maayka) for my delivery. So, I had a lot of free time when I could interact with all my friends and neighbours like never before (and never have I had a similar opportunity too) 😉 that made that visit to Mumbai special. For those Atulites who know me- I had shifted out of Mumbai post marriage and so the term “visit to Mumbai”.

Getting back to “Chaandni” – those were the days when there were VCRs in many home and people used to rent Video Cassettes of movies which they couldn’t see in the theatres. I have seen a few movies in that way in the company of my neighbour’s family and more importantly their son. Their son was a year or two older to me so he was a mentor, guide, friend, idol and so many other things for me. To start off (as was the norm in those times) he was my Rakhi bro but we had a different equation between the two of us. He being my idol – I started liking Rekha- his favourite and he, on his part, made an effort to like Amitabh because he doted on me. Whatever love I have for physics, all branches of mathematics, and history is because I followed his way of studying them.

Oh, I again went away from Chaandni- so “Parinda” and “Chaandni” were the two movies the two of us saw back-to-back. “Chaandni” was a typical triangular love story. To start of it is a simple love story where the girl- Chaandni (Sridevi)- is wooed not-so-easily by the guy- Rohit (Rishi Kapoor). But the guys’ family has an issue with the alliance but accept it because their ‘only’ son is adamant. They go ahead have an engagement etc. But unfortunately, Rohit meets with an accident and is bound to a wheel chair. His family decides that this is the best time to humiliate the girl and so Rohit is forced to break-off the engagement so that the girl doesn’t have to face his family’s behaviour.

Now what does the girl do? She leaves Delhi, comes to Mumbai and lands a job in Lalit’s (Vinod Khanna) office. He is already pining for his dead wife when he falls in love with her, she takes some time to reciprocate though she is always civil to him and his mother. The next twist in the story comes when Lalit meets Rohit in Switzerland, where he has gone for business and Rohit has come for treatment. They become friends and decide that on returning to India they will introduce their respective girl friends and also marry on the same day etc. Isn’t that enough to twist the story further and make it a triangle?

As for the songs posted on the blog this date in 2009 – here they are

This will be the 7th song from “Chaandni” which had Shiv-Hari as music directors and Anand Bakshi as lyricist. I cannot keep myself from saying: Sridevi looks so pretty and baby-like in this song, actually she looks like a baby through the movie. This song is shot on the streets of Delhi or New Delhi. I would like it if the Dilliwale followers of the blog help in identifying the locations. It will be nice to know. 🙂

This song is also in memory of the aforementioned friend who loved to ape Rishi Kapoor and his sunglasses and sweaters. This friend was also a Dilliwala for a brief period of his life.

Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 20
——————————————————–

Today (21 march 2019) is the festival of Holi. Indian festivals are based on Indian festivals and so they fall on different days in different years vis a vis Gregorian Calender). For instance, ten years ago in 2009, Holi festival had taken place on 11 march.

It is not possible to have Ten year challenge for Holi festival songs, because first, the festival falls on different days in different years of Gregorian calender (as discussed above). Secondly, one movie normally has only one Holi song. I have yet to come across a movie that has two separate Holi songs.

This article is not a Holi song, but it is a “Blog Ten Year Challenge” song nevertheless. And it is a very special song as we will come to know soon enough.

Seven songs from seven different movies were covered in the blog on 21 march 2009. Out of these movies, “Dhoop Chhaaon”(1935), “Acchut Kanya”(1936), “Aag”(1948) , Anaadi”(1959) and “Kaaliya”(1981) have been YIPPEED by now. So that leaves only two movies viz “Jantar Mantar”(1964) and “Chaandni”(1989) that are eligible for blog ten year challenge today (21 march 2009).

The movie “Jantar Mantar”(1964) was directed by Radhakant for Omkar enterprises, Bombay. This “kalpnik” movie, which basically means a C grade movie, had Mahipal, Vijaya Chaudhary, Ulhas, Sherri, Jeewankala, Babu Raje, Mridula, Qamar, Ghanshyam, Ajeet Kumar, Dubey, Kesri, Saiyyad, Rajmala, Madhumati etc in it.

The movie has six songs. One song from this movie has been covered in the past. And that one song was discussed exactly ten years ago on 21 march 2009. One song covered in 21 march 2009 and then no khoj khabar of this movie for full one decade. Bahut naainsaafi hai !

That one song from this movie was a Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet. The second song from this movie, which is being discussed today after exactly ten years is a Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet as well. And this is no ordinary Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet. This song, a rare song, is the one hundredth Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur duet in the blog.

With this song, Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur become the seventh singing duo to have a century of their duet songs in the blog. Here are the details of these singing duos:

singing duo Number of duet songs in the blog
Rafi-Asha Bhonsle 518
Rafi-Lata 335
Kishore Kumar-Asha Bhonsle 219
Kishore Kumar-Lata 193
Mukesh-Lata 139
Rafi-Geeta Dutt 107
Rafi-Suman Kalyanpur 100

The song is penned by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music is composed by Sardar Malik. This song is picturised on Mahipal and Vijaya Chaudhary. Incidentally, a song of Anu Malik, Sardar Malik’s son and Hasrat Jaipur I’d nephew was covered in the blog earlier today.


Song-Jaadu dekhe tone dekhe (Jantar Mantar)(1964) Singers-Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Sardar Malik
Both

Lyrics

jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar
main hoon pyaasi prem deewaani
aisi baat na kar
main hoon teri tu hai mera
manchaahe dilbar

main door kahin jaaun
aakaash ke taaron mein
ulfat ko nibhaaungi
toofaan ke dhaaron mein
toofaan ke dhaaron mein
hum donon ki ek lagan hai
dil mein dil ka ghar
main hoon teri tu hai mera
manchaahe dilbar

jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar

ye pyaas to saagar hai
main doob ke jaata hoon
tere hi ujaalon se
har cheez ko paata hoon
har cheez ko paata hoon
lab par tera naam suhaana
duniya ka kya darr
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar
jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar

kyun dekhoon kisi ko main
tum meri mohabbat ho
jeewan ka sahaara ho
aankhon ki ibaadat ho
aankhon ki ibaadat ho
koi na samjhe dil aurat ka
hota hai mandir
main hoon teri tu hai mera
manchaahe dilbar

jaadu dekhe tone dekhe
dekhe sab jantar
bigdi baat bana dete hain
pyaar ke do mantar
