Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 15
——————————————————————————

Now a days we have been managing one or two posts a day daily. When I look back ten years ago, we had similar situation in the blog even in those days.

For instance, on this day ten years ago, viz on 3 april 2010, two songs were covered in the blog viz:

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Main pyaar ka deewaanaa Aayi Milan Ki Bela-1964 All Songs posted
Aayi jhoom ke bahaar Insaaniyat-1955 07 of 17 songs posted

“Insaaniyat”(1955) was produced and directed by S S Wasan for Gemini Pictures, Madras. This movie had Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Bina Rai, Vijaylaxmi, Jayant, Jairaj, Shobhana Samarth, Badr Prasad, Kumar, Agha, Mohana, Zippy (Chimpanzee), T Mukherjee, Ishwar Lala, G v Sharma, Vijay Rao, G Bhatt etc in it.

The movie had a whopping 17 songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered so far.

Tere sang sang piyaa khel ke main rang 15.07.2009
Chup chup chup hone lagaa kuchh 23.08.2009
Aayi jhoom ke bahaar 03.04.2010

Gori kar le tu aaj singaar 11.12.2019

The third song from this movie viz.Aayi jhoom ke bahaar was covered in the blog ten years ago. So this gives us an opportunity to cover another song from the movie under the “Blog Ten year Challenge” series. So here is the eighth song from “Insaaniyat”(1955). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I request our kowledgeale readers to help identify her as well as others seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala, who keeps a keen eye on “Blog Ten Year Challenge” opportunities which have been rather limited for the last few weeks.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 14
——————————————————————————

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day: 4263 Post No.: 15489

———————————————–——————————-
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 13
——————————————————————————

In olden days (even today for that matter) Indians were expected to behave in a particular manner. For instance, when it came to their day to day live, most of them were “gareeb” and they were told that they had the sole right on the resources of the nation in the form of doles aka subsidies. All political parties claimed to be pro poor parties and promised to “hataao” gareebi if voted to power. After repeatedly getting voted to power on the plank of hataaoing gareebi, the same politicians now claim to be for the “gareeb”. These “gareeb” are supposed to be gullible possessing of short memory so the politicians can get away despite failing to fulfill their past promises.

Movie makers were no different. They too made movies for the same segment of society that were treated as “gareeb” by the political classes. This section of society was supposed to like movies with escapist stories that bore little resemblance to real life. Depicting real life was considered no no. Movies depicting real life were considered boring. Why would a “gareeb” audience come to the movie hall to watch movies depicting his real dull life ? This was what the movie makers believed in.

Sometimes, some movie makers would make movies with realistic movies. Ordinary movie goers and even press would describe these movies as boring. Most movies like this flopped.

Top stars acted in such movies for creative satisfaction, but the ordinary fans felt betrayed when they would go to the movie hall and find their star sans his usual mannerisms.

Rajesh Khanna is “Aavishkaar” (1973), and Amitabh Bachchan in “Man Aazaad Hoon” (1990) are two such movies that readily comes to my mind.

“Aavishkaar” (1973) was directed by Basu Bhattacharya Aarohi Film Makers Bombay. This movie had Rajesh Khanna, Sharmila Tagore, Dina Gandhi, Denis Clement, Satyen Kappu, Monika Jasnan (child artist), Devendra Khandelwal, Margaret, new discoveries Mahesh Sharma and Minna Johar etc in it.

The movie dealt with a real life “boring” tale, viz the marital life of a couple, played by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. Fans of superstar Rajesh Khanna, who went to the movie hass expecting a movie like “Aaraadhana”(1969) were disappointed. There was no way juvenile fans (including yours truly) of Rajesh Khanna, who were brought up on stuff like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) were going to like this movie.

This movie was only for “mature” movie goers. Just like “rich” people were looked down upon by “gareeb” people, “mature” people, with their occasional boring movies were looked down upon by people loving “mainstream” movies.

Please do not believe the review of “Aavishkaar”(1973) that is carried by wikipedia etc. These reviews are written with the benefit of hindsight by people who were not even born when this movie was released. I remember the reviews carried out in mainstream Hindi media during 1973 which bore no resemblance whatsoever with its review that we now find online.

Coming to the songs of the movie, “Aavishkaar” (1973) had five songs in it. Four of these songs are covered in the past as described hereunder:-

Ten years ago on this day, two songs were covered in the blog

मेरे मन की अभिलाषा में
तन की परिभाषा में
बचपन के गुड़ियाघर में ए
कितनी बार तुझे
खेलते खेलते तोड़ा आ

तू
हां तू ही तो है
मेरी अमर आशा

और प्रेम की आशा से
बनी तेरी काया है
कहाँ से बताऊँ तू आया है
पडा तुझे मैंने कहाँ पाया है
मेरे लाल

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)-Song No. 12
———————————————–

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) was directed by Babubhai Mistry. The movie had Mahipal, Helen, Anwar, Pratibha, Sapru, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Ajit, Habib, Shyam Kumar, Ragini, Bir Sakuja, K N Singh, Sulochana, Tun Tun etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the earlier songs covered in the blog:-

Been na bajaana jaadu na jagaanaa (Sunahri Naagin) 12 march 2010
Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon (Sunahri Naagin) 14 march 2010
Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke (Sunahri Naagin) 16 march 2010
Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake (Sunahri Naagin) 3 june 2010
Main to ho gayi re badnaam (Sunahri Naagin) 16 july 2018

As can be noticed, this movie made its debut in the blog on 12 march 2010. Next two songs from the movie were discussed on 14 march 2010 and 16 march 2010. So, a song from this movie was covered on this day ten years ago !

So the movie becomes a candidate for Blog Ten year challenge !

Ten years ago, the daily output of the blog was as low as it is in the present. Nowadays we are plodding along at barely one song a day. Those days, barely one song or two a day were often punctuated by spells of DOT days.

The reason for such slow output was that I was transferred from Jabalpur to Nagpur (in december 2009) and the entire process took upto end of february 2010. During this time I was living a nomad’s life and posting articles was a struggle.

Nevertheless, I was on the verge of settling down, and I had started to post two songs daily by March 2010. Following two songs were covered on this day ten years ago:-

Song Posted On
Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke (Sunahri Naagin)(1963) 16 march 2010
Dil le ke jaate ho kahaan(O Tera Kya Kehna)(1959) 16 march 2010

“O Tera Kya Kehna”(1959) has since been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today, as part of “Blog Ten Year Challenge”, here is a synchronised dance song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963). The song is sung by Lata and Kamal Barot. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandjui.

Resemblence of this song to “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” (Parasmani)(1963) is no coincidence. Both movies were directed by the same director (Babubhai Mistry) and written by the same screenplay writers (Pandit Madhur and Vishwanat Pandey). Both movies had Mahipal as the hero. This song in fact has the same tune. This song could be described as the equivalent song of “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” (Parasmani)(1963) in this movie. I am sure that Laxmikant Pyarelal were the composer of this tune (like that of “Parasmani”) as assistants to Kalyanji Anandji. Lyricist differs though. Here is in Indeewar. In “nooraani” song it was Asad Bhopali.

It is just a quirk of fate that “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” assumed cult status, while this song did not become that well known.

One of the dancers is Helen. I am unable to identify the other dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation.

PS-Prakashchandra, our inhouse face recognition expert tells us that the dancers are Madhumati (Helen look alike) and Bela Bose. Occupants of the Raj darbaar throne are Anwar Hussain and Zeb Rahman (aka Preeti Bala).

Lyrics

yoon na akadiye
yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye
yooon na bigadiye ho ho

kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho

chaahe jitna bacho
chaahe kitna daro
aji aankhon ka jaadu chalega
chaahe gussa karo chaahe shikwa karo
aji dil to kisi din jalega
aapka ye guroor koi kar dega choor
aapka ye guroor koi kar dega choor
hosh ud jaayega mere sarkaar ka
yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye

yoon na akadiye

laakh tan ke chalo

nazren to mil ke rahengi
honth daabe raho chaahe kuchh na kaho
aji aankhen to sab kuchh kahengi
oonche sar jhuk gaye

aaj jiski ada nahin janchti zara
aji kal dil ko bhaane lagega
jiske haalaat par nahin karte nazar
aji pal bhar mein aane lagega
ye ajab hai jahaan sab hai mumkin yahaan

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 11
———————————————————————————

‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (1978) was directed by Raj Kapoor for his home production RK Films, Bombay. He dedicated this movie to his beloved friend singer Mukeshchandra whom we fondly know as Mukesh.

The cast of the film includes Kanhaiyalal, AK Hangal, David, Hari Shivdasani, Leela Chitnis, Sheetal, Baby Padmini, Baby Komal, Tun Tun, Vishwa Mehra, Mansaram, Pardesi, Shriram Shastry, Nandini, Mona, Seema, Mani, Yasmin, Bina, Subroto Mahapatra and Javed Khan.

The story of this movie was written by Jainendra Jain. Radhu Karmakar was the Director of Photography. Raj Kapoor who produced and directed this movie was also the editor of this movie.

HFGK lists nine songs and one dialogue track released on records of this movie. The total nine songs are including of their parts and the title song is mentioned to be in four parts. There are two more songs (the ‘aarti’ and ‘shlokas’ with the titles, and ‘’Yashomati maiyya se boley…’) in the movie having two parts. Narendra Sharma, Anand Bakshi and Vithhal Bhai Patel wrote the songs for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Bhupinder, Mukesh, and Nitin Mukesh who debuted as a singer in this movie had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.03.1978 with restricted viewing certificate.

Three songs from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram-1978’ posted on the blog earlier are as follows;

Song  Posted On
 Yashomati maiyya se boley Nandlala  07.09. 2008
 Satyam Shivam Sundaram  15.03.2010
 Suni jo unke aane ki aahat …  11.02.2020

I watched this movie much later in nineties (I think so). However, I remember, in my childhood, the two songs from this movie were very much popular viz. the title song “Satyam Shivam Sundaram“and “Yashomati maiyya se boley Nandlala” as they were frequently played on loud speakers and radio. The title song was also the most favorite number of almost all ‘orchestras’ which used to play it during ‘Ganesh Festival’ or other festival programs. However, I didn’t like both these songs then.

Rather I very much like the song “Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal” and the song being presented today, maybe I heard them on radio during those years. Later on, when I bought the album of this movie (an audio cassette in late eighties) the song “Suni Jo Unke Aane Ki Aahat” also become my favorite song from this movie with all other songs.

When I checked the ‘annual Binaca Geetmala’ for the year ‘1978’ I found ‘Yashomati maiyya se…’ (as expected), at number seven and the song was, surprisingly for me, not the title song of the movie but it was “Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal” ranking at number twenty-four of the list.

Well coming back to the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ today we have two songs posted on this day ten years back as follows;

 Song  Movie title-Year  Remarks

Blog

As one of the movies i.e. ‘Anpadh’ (1962) is already ‘Yippeeee éd’ on the blog we have ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ to be represented with a song on the blog today. The song I have selected today was noted long time back and was pending for posting. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Bhupendra. I like this song very much and particularly for those few lines sung by Bhupendra Singh which makes this song very very special of course with great singing by Lata Mangeshkar and so greatly composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal to the beautiful lyrics by Vithhal Bhai Patel.

Let us enjoy this wonderful song now …

(Note: – In the movie, this song appears in two parts. The video of the second part is not available now however full audio of this song is available).

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

Welcome all to the today’s post where I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Saudaagar-1991’. This is one of the two movies falling under ‘Blog Ten-Year challenge’ today. Another movie is ‘Sunahri Naagin-1963’.

Only two songs (better strike rate than the current ‘one song per day’😊) were posted on the blog on this day ten years back i.e. on 14.03.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ilu Ilu Saudaagar-1991 02 of 06 songs posted
Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon Sunahri Naagin-1963 05 of 08 songs posted

‘Saudaagar-1991’ is one of the many movies that I watched during my stay at Kota. I remember I watched this movie twice during its initial release. Later I have always enjoyed it in ‘parts’ whenever it was on TV channels. The main reason for watching the movie was that it was directed by Subhash Ghai (he was the producer as well) and secondly its ‘music’.
I am big fan of Subhash Ghai , not only for his direction but for the music of his movies as well.

Music has always been a ‘highlight’ of the movies directed by him and also the picturization of the song sequences in his movies which are choreographed in ‘style’.

I still remember watching ‘Ram Lakhan-1989’, ‘Saudaagar-1991’ and ‘Khalnayak-1993’ to packed houses in Kota and the audience breaking into cheers and dancing to the tunes of ‘My name is Lakhan’, ‘Ilu Ilu’, ‘Imli ka boota beri ka ped’, and other songs in ‘Ram Lakhan-1989’ and ‘Saudaagar-1991’.

Also, I cannot forget the ‘mesmerising silence’ watching the ‘artistically choreographed’ ‘Choli ke peechhe kya hai’ and the ‘picturesque beauty’ in the song ‘Paalki mein ho ke sawaar chali re’… from ‘Khalnaayak-1993’.

His collaboration with the music-duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal started with the ‘1979’ movie ‘Gautam Govinda’ and lasted till ‘Khalnayak-1993’.
Let us have a look on the list of movies where Laxmikant-Pyarelal scored the music for the movies directed by Subhash Ghai;

SNo Movie Title Year
01 Gautam Govinda 1979
02 Karz 1980
03 Krodhi 1981
04 Hero 1983
06 Meri Jung 1985
07 Karma 1986
08 Ram Lakhan 1989
09 Saudaagar 1991
10 Khalnaayak 1993

Today’s song from ‘1991’ movie ‘Saudaagar’ is picturized on the then debutant pair Manisha Koirala and Vivek Mushran. Also present in the picturization of the song is Anupam Kher who played a ‘pivotal’ role in the movie.

The song is sung by Kavita Krishnamurthy, Manhar Udhas and Sukhvinder Singh. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs from ‘Saudaagar-1991’ posted on the blog earlier are as follows;

Blog Day : 4240 Post No. : 15456

———————————————–——————————-
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 9
——————————————————————————

We have two movies that qualify to be covered Under the ‘Blog Ten Year challenge 2010-2020’ today (26 february 2020). One is the ‘1958’ movie ‘Chaubees Ghante’ and the other movie is from the ‘Seventies’ i.e. ‘Ahsaas-1979’.

‘Ahsaas’ was released in ‘1979’ that is when I was above eleven years old. Since the movie was released with ‘restricted viewing’ means we had no chance of watching and discussing this movie among out not yet adult friend circle.

One song from this movie was frequently played on radio and had also make its mark in the ‘Binaca Geetmala’ (it ranked eighteenth in the annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1980). Unlike the movie, its songs were not deemed restricted for adult listening. So listened to this song a lot. This song was the main reason why I and others adolescents like me remembered the name of this movie. That song was ‘sapnon ke shahar ham banaayenge ghar’. I think that this this was the only popular song from this movie at that time.

‘Ahsaas-1979’ was directed by S.K. Suri for ‘Sippy Films Pvt Ltd, Bombay’. S.K. Suri or Surendra Suri also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. It was produced by G.P. Sippy.

(Atul ji has mentioned in his post here that this movie from the Sippy’s came in between ‘Sholay-1975’ and ‘Shaan-1980’. But with newcomers and also with a new music team).

The cast of ‘Ahsaas’ include the new comers Dina, Parvez, Rakesh Bedi, Kiran Vairale, Sahil and Rita Rani Kaul.

This movie had special appearances of Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Simmi, Bindiya Goswami, Bindu, Simple Kapadia and Amjad Khan.

The other supporting cast include Chand Usmani, Leela Mishra, Sunder, Mohan Sheri, Asha Potdar, Arun Desai, Deepak, Raj, Sanjay Kaushik, Ashok Junior, K.S. Deshpande and Dina Nath.

M.S. Shinde was the editor of this movie (He was also the editor of ‘Sholay-1975’).

Dialogues of this movie were written by Suraj Sanim.

This movie had six songs written by Indeevar (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh gave their voices to the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1979.

So far four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

During the preparation of this post I also listened to other songs from this movie. I had not paid attention to them earlier though I might have heard them earlier. I discovered that the other songs are also good, particularly today’s song which appears familiar. Among other songs the first song of the movie which starts with the title is also a nice one and seems to be inspired from ‘ye dosti ham nahin todenge’ (the music is nice but may be the song didn’t get much attention since the movie didn’t go well with the audiences).

Coming back to the songs posted on the blog ten years back, three songs were discussed on that day :-

hamko sabhi har baat pe tokey
jo khud karey wo hi karne se roke ae
hamko sabhi har baat pe tokey
karey ham kisise pyaar
chheena ye bhi adhikaar
karey ham kisise pyaar
chheena ye bhi adhikaar
mele mein ham to akele khade
jo naa chhote hai naa bade
badi mushkil mein wo pade ae

unki mushkilon ka
ahsaas nahin ee
unke liye waqt kisi ke paas nahin
ho jo naa chhote hai naa bade
badi mushkil mein wo pade

toofaan umangon ka itnaa jyaada
duniya badalne ka apnaa iraada
toofaan umangon ka itnaa jyaada
hamaara jawaan pyaar
tod dega har deewaar
hamaara jawaan pyaar
tod dega har deewaar
bandhan mein kab tak rahenge jakde
jo naa chhote hai naa bade
badi mushkil mein wo pade ae

unki mushkilon ka
ahsaas nahin ee
unke liye waqt kisi ke paas nahin
ho jo naa chhote hai naa bade
badi mushkil mein wo pade ae

जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े

जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े
जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े

उनकी मुश्किलों का
अहसास नहीं ई
उनके लिए वक़्त किसी के पास नहीं
हो जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े

उनकी मुश्किलों का
अहसास नहीं ई
उनके लिए वक़्त किसी के पास नहीं
हो जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े ए

उनके लिए ना तो बाहर की दुनिया
उनके लिए ना तो घर की दुनिया
उनके लिए ना तो बाहर की दुनिया
ना इस किनारे
ना उस किनारे
हो ना इस किनारे ए
ना उस किनारे
बीच धारे पर है वो खड़े
जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े

उनकी मुश्किलों का
अहसास नहीं ई
उनके लिए वक़्त किसी के पास नहीं
हो जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े ए

हमको सभी हर बात पे टोके
जो खुद करे वो ही करने से रोके ए
हमको सभी हर बात पे टोके
करे हम किसीसे प्यार
छीना ये भी अधिकार
करे हम किसीसे प्यार
छीना ये भी अधिकार
मेले में हम तो अकेले खड़े
जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े

उनकी मुश्किलों का
अहसास नहीं ई
उनके लिए वक़्त किसी के पास नहीं
हो जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े

तूफ़ान उमंगों का इतना ज्यादा
दुनिया बदलने का अपना इरादा
तूफ़ान उमंगों का इतना ज्यादा
हमारा जवान प्यार
तोड़ देगा हर दीवार

हमारा जवान प्यार
तोड़ देगा हर दीवार
बंधन में कब तक रहेंगे जकड़े
जो ना छोटे है ना बड़े
बड़ी मुश्किल में वो पड़े ए

उनकी मुश्किलों का

Blog Day : 4240 Post No. : 15454

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 8
——————————————————————————
I am fond of saying that this blog was quite prolific in the past and presently we are crawling as a slow rate in comparison. But that was not the case throughout. There was a phase in the blog in the past when the posts in this blog has almost dried up. That was from december 2009 till february 2010. There were as many as 34 DOT days in the blog out of 90 days during these three months. Only 112 posts were published in the blog during these three months. Thus the blog those days was not even a song a day blog. It had even become no song in a day blog on 33 % days.

The reason was that I had found myself transferred from my earlier place of posting viz Jabalpur in the month of December 2009. It was an inter zonal transfer in Railways parlance. I was transferred from WCR zone to SECR Zone, whose HQ was at BIlaspur, Chhattisgarh. I reported at Bilaspur in the first week of december 2009. I stayed there for a few days before it was decided that I would be posted at Nagpur.

It took me a while before I got a quarter allotted to me at Nagpur in February 2010. I then went to Jabalpur, vacated my quarter there and brought the luggage to Nagpur. It was first week of March 2010 before I could get settled in Nagpur.

During these three months from December 2009 to February 2010, it was difficult to find time for blogging. Still, I thried to keep the blog going. The laptop that I had was my constant companion and I had a dongle for internet connectivity, but posting on a regular basis when I was literally living out of suitcase was a tough challenge.

All these dot days means that there are not too many occasions today (ten year later) when we can find songs for ten year challenge. There are days that were DOT days, so there is no question of being able to discuss a ten year challenge song those days. On the few days when some songs were discussed, many of these songs have already been YIPPEED by now.

Take the example of blog activity on this day ten years back (viz on 26 february 2010). Three songs were posted on the blog on that day :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Kitne raanjhe tujhe dekhkar bairaagi ban gaye Ahsaas-1979 04 of 06 songs posted
Aur kuchh der thahar aur kuchh der na jaa Aakhri Khat-1966 All Songs posted
Hame haal e dil tumse kahna hai Chaubees Ghante-1958 05 of 08 songs posted

“Chaubees Ghante”(1958) had made its debut on that day ten years ago. The writeup of this article was quite brief and sketchy, and contained little details about the movie. It shows that I did not have time to do research on this song. Moreover, ten years ago I was far less knowledgeable about HFM than today. I did not even have access to HFGK those days.

Now I know that this movie was directed by Dwarka Khosla for Zar Productions, Bombay. The movie had Premnath, Shakila, Maruti, Shammi, Nishi, Samson, Rajan Kapoor, K N Singh etc in it.

Ten years later, this movie had debuted in the blog when I was trying to find my feet at Nagpur, Maharashtra. Today (26 February 2010), exactly ten years later, I find myself at Gorakhpur, UP (via Bilaspur, Chattisgarh and Izatnagar, Bareilly, UP). By now five songs from the movie have been covered. Three songs were covered when I was at Nagpur. One song each was covered at Bilaspur and Izatnagar respectively.

Here is the sixth song from “Chaubees Ghante”(1958) appearing in the blog when I am based at Gorakhpur, UP. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bipin Baabul.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

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


Song-Aaj ka salaam lo kal ka waada pakka(Chaubees Ghante)(1958) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Bipin Baabul

Lyrics 9Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Doodloo loo oo oo
Didlee lee ee ee ee
Doodloo loo oo oo

Sambhal sambhal ke chal zaraa
Kadam kadam pe jaal hai
Sambhal sambhal ke chal zaraa
Kadam kadam pe jaal hai
Samajh ke paansa phenk le
Ye zindagi ki chaal hai
Aaj ka salaam lo
Kal ka waada pakka
hans ke mera naam lo
kal ka waada pakka
kal ka waada pakka
kal ka waada pakka
Doodloo loo oo oo oo
Didlee lee ee ee ee
Doodloo loo oo oo oo

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 7
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ – (2010-2020).
Once again we have a movie which has completed a ‘decade’ on the blog with only one of its song posted on the blog.

This movie is ‘Raja Babu-1994’.

Regulars on the blog would be surprised why I am presenting a song from this movie? I am neither a Govinda fan nor is this a song that triggers any memories in my mind.

I want to clarify that I do have a connected memory associated with this movie and I watched it too. But it was not by choice, rather to make used of my waiting time, when I was forced to endure wait of twelve to sixteen hours at Guna (M.P) Railway station.

I was reminded of that incident when I came across the name of thjis movie while checking for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’.

I was travelling from Nagpur to Kota via Bina. At Guna station our train was terminated as there was some problem on the Guna-Kota route. Onward journey was possible only next day. My cousin (from Nagpur) was also travelling with me so we decided to take a round of Guna. There was a theatre near the railway station running this movie ‘Raja Babu-1994’ so (reluctantly for me, because I was not much interested in watching all the new movies then) we decided to watch this movie.

I don’t remember now if I like it then or not.

I think I had only watched very few of Govinda movies viz. ‘Marte Dam Tak-1987’, ‘Swarg-1990’, ‘Hum-1991’, ‘Aankhen-1993’ when I was staying at Kota and watching movies with colleagues on Sundays/holidays was ‘customary’.
However, later on I like him very much in ‘Coolie No.1-1995’, ‘Deewana Mastaana-1997’, ‘Bade Miyaan Chhote Miyaan-1998’ etc.

Recently I get to watched his ‘Bhaagam Bhaag-2006’ on TV.

Coming back to today’s post, one song from ‘Raja Babu-1994’-the much talked about song (or the most popular?) from this movie- has already been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the second song from the movie to be posted on the blog.

Two songs were posted on the blog on this day ten years back i.e. on 21.02.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Sarkaay lyo khatiyaa jaada lage Raja Babu-1994 01 of 07 songs posted
Din control ke aye … itni lambi chaudi duniya Mr. Sampat-1952 03 of 13 songs posted

‘Raja Babu-1994’ was directed by David Dhawan for ‘Sapna Arts’. It was produced by Nandu G. Tolani. It had Govinda, Karishma Kapoor, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Gulshan Grover, Prem Chopra and Kadar Khan, and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by K. Bhagyaraj. Dialogues were written by Anees Bazmee. A.K. Rana was the Chief Asstt. Director and A Muthu was the Editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.01.1994.

Lyrics for the seven songs (including one multiple version song) in this movie were written by Sameer and music was composed by Anand-Milind.

Only one song from this movie has been posted earlier and the today’s song is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a duet song sung by Kavita Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan and its picturized on Govinda, Karishma Kapoor and others.

Let us now listen to this song …

(Note: (1) – The words in the ‘mukhda’ of this song are different as ‘Yaad sataaye teri neend churaaye, ab dil naa lagey dilbar’ in the separate audio/video links available on YT however in the movie (available online) the words are ‘Yaad sataaye teri neend churaaye meri, dil naa lagey dilbar’. Lyrics noted here are as per the audio link given below (longer version).
Note: (2) – The audio version is having one extra ‘antaraa’ (the second one, which is not in the video) which has been included in the lyrics below).
