(A tribute to Ramesh Deo)

Today(30 January 2023) we introduce the movie “Hum Junglee Hain” from the year ‘1973’ on the blog.

Today 30th January’2023 is the ninety-seventh birth anniversary of yesteryears’ film actor Ramesh Deo.
He was born on 30th January’1926. If he would have been alive today he would have turned ninety-six today. He passed away last year on 2nd February’2022.

In his long career in Hindi and Marathi film industry he acted in many movies, and also in Marathi Stage Plays.

We have fond memories of his roles like Dr Kulkarni in ‘Anand’ and many other character roles and especially the negative roles he played in the Hindi movies.

I am not going into the details of his filmography in this post. Our Respected Shri Sudhir ji had done a detailed post on Ramesh Deo last year which I would like every ‘movie-buff’ should read. This post can be read here.

Ramesh Deo was a part of many movies of the ‘seventies’ when we were growing watching ‘Hindi movies’. He had a played a role in today’s movie, where I guess his role was of a ‘second lead’ in this movie. I have never watched this movie till now and I was not aware about its song till the preparation of this post. Though, I am yet to listen to the other songs from this movie. I had come across this song about a month back and since then I was holding it for presenting it on this occasion today.

On screen it is Ramesh Deo performing on this beautiful song with Vijaya Shree.

Here is a brief about the today’s movie.

“Hum Junglee Hain” was directed by P. Subramaniyam for ‘Rani Productions, Madras’.

This movie was produced by V.C. Jain and G.C. Lalwan.

The cast of this movie included Kiran Kumar, Manish, Sapru, Paintal, Birbal, Aparna Choudhury, Kavish, Shanti, Viraj, Brahmachari, Santosh Kumar, Annamma and others, with Ramesh Deo and Vijaya Shree.

Anand and Cho were introduced in this movie.

This movie was written by C.L. Kavish. Story of this movie was by P. Subramaniyam who also directed this movie.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee had done the supervision for editing of this movie. Editing was done by Gopalakrishnan and Babu.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.11.1973.

As the title of this movie suggests it is based on a story involving ‘Jungle’ and the ‘animal’ there. Even there is a song in this movie ‘haathhi ke daant le lo’…
The titles of this movie mention that this movie has been shot in the ‘Jungles’ of ‘Kerala’.

This movie has seven sound tracks including six songs. All the songs for this movie were written by Vedpal Verma who also composed the songs of this movie.
Background music for this movie was composed by Pugazendi.

Here is the detail of songs in this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Jab se dekha hai tumko Mohd Rafi, Usha Mangeshkar
02 Laa laa …main mehndi rachaaungi Asha Bhonsle
03 Haathhi ke daant le lo P. B. Shrinivas, L.R. Eswari
04 Baaton baaton mein mere dil ko… Mohd Rafi, Usha Mangeshkar
05 Khilaa re … chaand khilaa taare khile Mahendra Kapoor, Usha Mangeshkar, chorus
06 Laa laa … naa mehndi rachaa saki Asha Bhonsle
07 Dance Music

The titles of this movie mentioned Asha Bhonsle, Mohammad Rafi, Mahendra Kapoor, P.B. Srinivas, and L.R. Eswari as playback singers for this movie.

That means the titles of this movie does not mention the name of Usha Mangeshkar as playback singer for this movie.

However HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) gives credit to Usha Mangeshkar for three songs in this movie. Today’s song is one of them.

The audio-video links of the today’s song and HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mention Mohd Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar as singers for the today’s song.

As mentioned above on screen it is Ramesh Deo and Vijaya Shree performing on this song. I think this song is a nice song and it should be a better-known song. But I do not remember to have heard it even on radio over these years.

With today’s song this movie ‘Hum Junglee Hain-1973’ makes its debut on the blog today.

Let us remember Ramesh Deo and pay him our tributes today and listen to this song picturised on him.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 9
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 22 January 2013, six songs from six movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7383 Main dekhoon tohe din raati Naina (1953) 3 songs covered out of 7 by now
7384 Jaani re hum jaani re Saanwariya(1949) 8 songs covered out of 10 by now
7385 Sab din hot na ek samaan Senapati(1961) 2 songs covered out of 7 by now
7386 Ham pyaar ki baazi haare Sazaa (1951) Movie YIPPEED with this song
7387 Mera antar ek mandir hai tera Tere Mere Sapne (1971) Movie YIPPEED by now
7388 Maine tumko chaaha pehli baar Double Cross (1973) 2 songs covered out of 5 by now

We observe that two movies (out of six movies) whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date (viz 22 January 2013) have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (22 January 2023).

Three of the four movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge have already been taken up today and their songs covered in the blog.

The final BTYC eligible movie of the day is “Double Cross”(1973). The movie was produced by Yash Kohli and directed by Gogi Anand for Pasupti Pictures Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Vijay Anand, Rekha and Asha Sachdev in lead roles. The movie also had Devkumar, Madan Puri, Rajeeta Thakur, Kuljeet, Sulochana(Ruby), Mohan Choti, Sunder, Indra(Indira) Bansal, Capt.Manmohan, Polson, V.Gopal, Birbal, Raj Kishore, Habib, Mama, Ramesh, Lala Nazir, Jullien, Sammi, Shanti, D.Kumar, Dhanna, Baby Nalina, Sujata, Ratna, Zarina, Marie, Pushpa Varma, Parvati Shirodkar etc in it. David and Manmohan had made guest appearances.

Today is the 89th birth anniversary of Vijay Anand (22 January 1934-23 February 2004). He not only acted as hero in this movie, he was also involved in the movieas screenplay writer, Dialogue writing and Editing !

The song under discussion is a highly appropriate song for the occasion. The dialogues that precede the song has Vijay Anand breaking this news to Rekha that it was his birthday today. And then the duo break into this song in celebration. 🙂

Here is this song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

It is a song that I am listening for the first time, some 50 years after this song was created. It sounds as fresh and lively as it must have sounder 50 years ago. That is what is called timeless music.

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

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-5)
——————————————-——————————

Today we introduce the movie “Pyaasi Nadi” from the year ‘1973’ on the blog.

It was directed by Shankar Kinagi for ‘Ishwar Art International’.

This movie was produced by M.N. Bakia.

This movie introduced actor Vikram and actress Vani Ganpati (as mentioned in the titles of this movie).
It also had Gulshan Arora, Prashant (in special appearance), Shahina and Helen. They were supported by Bipin Gupta, Asit Sen, Murad, V. Gopal, Chandrakant Gokhale, Tribak Joshi, Narsi Patel, Albert, Barot, Daksh Dave, Puroshottam Shah, Himanshu Patel, Ashok Khanna, Vasu Naik, Chimanlal, Shantilal, Jagdish, Shrimati Bhasin, Kewal, Jadhav, Ramesh Jani, Seema Kapoor, Shefali, Hansa Chokshi, Urmila Bhatt, Bhola, Das, Raj, Ravi, Kallu Khan and others.

Story of this movie was written by Ranu and Screenplay was written by Ram Kelkar. Dialogues of this movie were written by Gulshan Jalalabadi and Ram Kelkar.
A.Javeed was the Dialogue Instructor of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Ramrao Ghatke.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.08.1973.

This movie has five songs. They were written by Gulshan Bawra (two songs), Mahendra Dehalvi (one song) and Tajdar Taj (two songs).

Music for this movie was composed by Ratandeep-Hemraaj.

Here is the list of songs from this movie.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Laakh yugon ka ek baras ho Tajdar Taj Asha Bhonsle
02 O re sajanwa, saagar mein kyun aate toofaan Tajdar Taj Mukesh, Chandrani Mukherjee
03 Zaalim ne pilaa de hai Mahendra Dehalvi Asha Bhonsle
04 Three six, two four, .. phone karo aur Gulshan Bawra Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Meri jaan kah ke log Gulshan Bawra Chandrani Mukherjee

Today’s song is sung by Chandrani Mukherjee and Mukesh. It is lip-synced on screen by Vani Ganpati and Vikram. It is a sweet song happening on a boat sailing in a river.

I am not aware of the context in which this song takes place happens, but in the video of the song Vani Ganpati utters some dialogues for Vikram and that can give us some clue, I think.

Lyrics for today’s song are written by Tajdar Taj and music is composed by Ratandeep-Hemraaj.

Let us listen to today’s duet in the voices of Mukesh and Chandrani Mukherjee now…

With today’s song this movie ‘Pyaasi Nadi-1973’ makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Pyaar Hi Pyaar” – release date 17th October 1969- was directed by Bhappie Sonie and produced by Rajaram & Satish Wagle. It had music by Shankar-Jaikishan & Hasrat Jaipuri wrote most of the songs. Rajinder Krishan is credited with one song. The movie had a cast of Vyjayanthimala, Dharmendra, Manmohan, Mehmood, Helen, Dhumal, Madan Puri, D.K. Sapru, Sulochana -Latkar & Chatterjee, Raj Mehra AND PRAN. Plus there were some character artists who are familiar faces to all Hindi movie fans- like the rotund Moolchand, Robert (the Goan dancer who was a prominent face in dance numbers till 1989), even Shatrughan Sinha and Salim Khan (who later formed a duo with Javed Akhtar) were there in small roles.

It was a normal story where a police inspector on duty of finding a beautiful young woman’s father promptly falls in love with her. Then there are the regular complications that any Indian film with love story as theme would have. Vijay (Dharmendra) and Kavita (Vyjayanthimala) face complications in the form of Shyam Kumar (Manmohan) and Satish Raj (Pran, calling himself Ashok occasionally). So that is the background for the film
The film had six songs of which the blog has these four.

Song Date of post Remarks
Ham aa gaye phir dar kaahe ka 3 January 2009
Dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyaar hi pyaar 3 january 2009 (two songs from the same film! one after the other!)
Main kahin kavi na ban jaaun 5 January 2009
Tu mera main teri duniya jaley to jaley 12 September 2020 (post by Nahmji)

As we can see this film has debuted on the blog and is one of those films that are yet to be Yyippeeeed.

We are having the next song today on the occasion of Dharmendra’s birthday. He is turning 87 today. I know that there are enough fans of this smart (who was young at the time of this movie) old man among the followers of this blog. He still looks charming as was seen when he appeared on a satellite channel a few weeks back. We all know that he has been entertaining us since 1960. His last release was in 2020 in a Punjabi film “Jora -second chapter” and he was also seen in short film “Dream Catcher” in 2021. His sons and daughters (from his marriage to Hema Malini) are actors and his grandson Karan Deol (Sunny Deol’s son) has taken his first step into the filmworld a few years back.

Just to get an idea of the acting range of Dharam Paaji (he is addressed like this fondly) – “Yakeen”, “Satyakam”, “Pyaar Hi Pyaar”, “Khamoshi”, “Aaya Sawan Jhoom Ke” and “Aadmi Aur Insaan” were his releases of 1969.

The song is regular ched-chaad song. It has the hero complaining to the heroine and her friends and hindering them in their efforts to help the drowning Manmohan. It is the song that was written by Rajinder Krishan and sung with full gusto by Mohd Rafi .


Song-Abhi salaamat abhi hai zinda aap ka khidmatgaar (Pyaar Hi Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

My first real jaan-pehchaan with this actor happened in 1970. The film – ‘Anand’. He plays the role of Dr. Prakash Kulkarni, friend of Dr. Bhaskar Bannerji (Amitabh Bachchan). His role was impressive and touching. At the climax of the film, when Anand is battling for his last breaths, Bhaskar is not present. He has gone on a last ditch hunt for a miracle medicine. Prakash is the doctor present in the room besides Renu (Sumita Sanyal), attending to Anand. It is 4.15 early morning.The final moments arrive. Anand requests for the spool tape player to be put on. Prakash realizes – the worst is about to happen. He asks the attending nurse to prepare an injection. And while the tape is playing Anand calls out for Babu Moshai, and his breathing ceases. Prakash is stunned and cannot move. There is horror and grief and dejection writ large on his face. These moments, this expression, the welling of tears in his eyes, and the unwilling acceptance of a final defeat – left an imprint on my mind strong enough to now remember the name of this actor – Ramesh Deo.

And then, the familiar face with now a recognized name – I could see him in many more films that followed. I would also become familiar with his earlier roles in Hindi films starting with ‘Aarti’ in 1962. I would see these earlier films, later as reruns or on Doordarshan. And somehow, he always made an impact on my mind with his performances. In ‘Khilona’ (1970), as Kishore, the wayward ghar-jamaai (resident son-in-law) of the Thakur Suraj Singh’s (Bipin Gupta) household, he is hell bent on throwing out a pregnant Chand (Mumtaz) for obvious inheritance gains. In 1971, one sees him in ‘Mere Apne’ as Arun Gupta, a low middle income householder, who tricks an aged Anandi Devi (Meena Kumari) to come and live in his home as an unpaid full time servant. In ‘Joru Ka Ghulam’ (1972), he is Ramesh, the scheming nephew of the rich businessman Shyamlal (Om Prakash), who continuously siphons off part of whatever money he handles in the business.

Then in ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), he plays the role of barrister P Amarnath, one of the three baddies (along with Harishchandra (Ajit) and Ramakant (Krishan Dhawan)), who commit a fraud at a bank and implicate Ashok (Dharmendra). Later, when Ashok returns and plans revenge against these three, he first destroys them financially through stock market wrangling. At this point in the film, there is a scene with an excellent performance by Ramesh Deo. As the news comes in that all their investment is lost at the stock market, it effects the brain of barrister Amarnath, and he goes mad. There is a two minutes long sequence with an editing gap of 15 seconds in between, which is performed by him. He goes mad, he cries, he laughs, he proclaims he wants to be rich, and then he runs out of the office room. He meets Ashok outside. Ashok is supposedly dead. So there is now a reaction of fear and horror, he runs away from him, crashes into a parked car, then runs off on to the road and is hit by another car. This sequence which is about 700 feet of reel length is supposedly shot as a single performance sequence. His histrionics are impressive and authentic.

Ramesh Deo, a veteran of almost 300 Hindi films, about 200 Marathi films, 30 Marathi stage plays with almost a thousand live performances – passed away on 2nd February earlier this year. Besides the impressive portfolio of stage and screen performances, he also has to his credit being the producer of many TV serials, documentaries and approximately 250 ad films through his own production company – Ramesh Deo Productions. A part of this body of work was also directed by him.

He traces his ancestry to the Rajput clans of Jodhpur. His great grandfather and grandfather were engineers who were part of the team that built the Jodhpur palace. Later they were invited by Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur, for constructing newer parts of the city. His grandfather was appointed as the chief engineer of the project. Later, his father, who studied law, became the legal advisor in the city administration of Kolhapur.

Ramesh was born in Kolhapur on 30th January, 1926. After his normal school and college education, he got introduced to films through Dinkar Patel, a Marathi film maker, who was a family friend. Once when Dinkar Patel was filming in Kolhapur, Ramesh and a group of his friends went to see the shooting. Quite unexpectedly, Dinkar Patel invited the group to join a scene in a college sequence being filmed, as students. The film was ‘Paatlachi Por’ (released in 1951). As per Ramesh, it was by this chance participation that the film bug bit him, and he decided to make acting as a career. This is in 1950.

He started his career as a junior artist and soon graduated to featured roles. His first notable performance that received critical acclaim was as a villain in ‘Andhala Magto Ek Dola’ (1956). Later, he signed up as a villain for ‘Saata Janmaachaa Sobati’, but was offered the lead instead when the hero was removed. Never typecast, many of his films’ publicity material would have a teaser asking audiences to guess whether he was the hero or villain!

Through the 1950s, Ramesh confined himself to Marathi cinema and stage, Then happened a chance encounter. The drama troupe he was working with was traveling in the rural Maharashtra. Having tea at a roadside tea shop, he realized that no one knew him as an actor. He felt let down within, that after having worked in the industry for almost a decade, he was a nobody for the common man. The same common man would readily recognize and acknowledge Hindi film stars. And he made up his mind to move to Hindi cinema also.

His first role in a Hindi film was in ‘Aarti’ 1962. And after that there was no looking back. In film after film in the sixties, he made a mark for himself, and a firm position in the Hindi film industry as a character artist. At 96, when he passed away, he was still actively working. In a manner of speaking, he died literally with his boots on.

The song being presented today is from the film ‘Love And Murder’ from 1966. The film is produced under the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay and is directed by Raja Paranjape. The brief star cast is listed as Prithviraj, Ramesh Deo, Jaimala, Heeralal, Helen, Kammo, Edwina, and Chandrakant Gokhale. Ramesh Deo plays the role of Ranjit, apparently a small time con-man, but in reality he is the unknown boss of the underworld gang. The plot of the film is available on MuVyz website at Love And Murder – Plot.

On screen, the song is performed by Ramesh Deo. The quality of the video is not very good, and I am not able to identify the lady companion for whom Ramesh is lip syncing this song. I request other knowledgeable readers to please help identify the lady actor in this video clip.

Ramesh Deo – a lasting presence in Marathi and Hindi cinema. A career that goes from 1950 to 2022. Seventy two years of active work in the cinema and theater industry – this must be a record of some sort. He had completed 96 years of his life’s journey when he bid the forever good bye to the world. As mentioned earlier, literally with his boots on – still actively working when he passed away.

He leaves behind his wife and two sons. Seema Deo, his spouse of 59 years, is a lasting romance of his life. This must also be a record of some sorts – the two appeared in more than 50 films as husband wife or as lovers. Ramesh had first seen her in a suburban train while heading to a studio and realized that she too was looking for film work. “That day, I got a plum assignment. We introduced ourselves, became friends, and soon got married,” he had said. Today, their children, actor-filmmaker Ajinkya Deo and filmmaker Abhinay Deo (‘Delhi Belly’) have done them proud.

Peace and divinity be with you Ramesh Deo. It has been an especially long innings. You will always be remembered for the huge variety of roles that you presented.

Good Bye.

मुझे यार ने मिटाया

मेरी जान जिस ने पाया
उसे मिल गई खुदाई
वो नसीब ले के आया
तेरे गेसूओं का साया

‘Naseehat’ (1967) was produced by Dara Singh (though Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Today (28 January 2022) is the 17th remembrance day of OP Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). On this occasion here is a song from “Naseehat”(1967).

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot and Mahendra Kapoor. SH Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by OP Nayyar.

The song is picturised as a dance song aboard a cruise liner. The music begins as a Beatles type western tune on guitar, but it soon gets converted into an arch-typical OP Nayyar punjabi bhangda dance music. The female dancers could be Helen or even her clone Madumati (both figure in the star cast). Male dancer could be Randhawa. I am not sure So I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancers and others seen in the picturisation.

[Ed Note: As dear Prakash ji confirms, the lead dancers are Madhumati and Sheila Ramchandra, and two of the supporting dancers are Manjula and late Saroj Khan.]


Song-Teri aankhon ne in aankhon se jo baat kahi (Naseehat)(1967) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Kamal Barot, Lyrics-SH Bihari, MD-OP Nayyar

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 150 # Year -1971#
———————————————–————————

We are celebrating ‘fifty years’ of the year ‘1971’, and discussing the movies released during that year and their songs.

In one of my earlier post I had mentioned the details of movies released from 01st January’1971 to 30th April’1971.

Today we look at the movies released between 01st May’1971 to 31st August’1971.

Here is the list: –

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1971.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Music of Uttam Singh – 01
—————————

#Nostalgia – Summer – 1983 (2) #

When I talk about the summer nostalgia-1983 I cannot forget the today’s movie. And that is why this separate write-up. Because the movie was a special movie for people like me who were interested in Manoj Kumar and his movies. And since his brother was making a debut with three others also making a debut, we (me and my friends) were excited about this movie.

Promotion of this movie on radio had already started earlier when we were already preparing for our board exams (of class Xth). Me and my friends used to discuss about its songs as some were nice songs and already heard frequently during promotion of this movie. Few songs from this movie were also becoming our favorites and we were also eager to watch the debutant actor and actresses of this movie.

The movie is ‘Painter Babu from 1983. The music of this movie is composed by music duo Uttam Singh- Jagdish Khanna. This was their first movie as music director duo. And this was also the first introduction of these names to me.

Well, we get to watch this movie in the vacations after our board examinations were over. After watching and liking this movie we become curious to know more about the music composers of this movie viz. Uttam Singh and Jagdish Khanna. However, after the Board exams it was ‘World Cup-1983’, and around the same time the results for the exams were declared. After that everything took a back seat and looking for admissions to ‘polytechnic’ or ‘11th -12th, become the priority. And that time there was no internet or blog like ‘atulsongaday’, and I was also not into contributing of lyrics or writing about movies and their songs 😊, So everything was deferred for the future.

‘Painter Babu’ was not as much successful on the box office as it was expected to do. But its beautiful songs were liked and enjoyed by music lovers like me. Some of its songs were already popular like “Kab Talak Shamma Jali Yaad Nahin” which has already been posted on the blog on 11.07.2012, more than eight years ago. Since I loved the songs of this movie, I had shared two of its songs after getting associated with this blog. I had noted two songs of this movie long time back, but they remained to be posted.

Today I am presenting this song on birth anniversary of Music Director Uttam Singh.

Uttam Singh was born on 25th May’1948. Today is his seventy-third birth anniversary. On this occasion we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead. (We will discuss more about him and his filmography in the future posts coming on the blog. Till then we move to the today’s movie again.)

‘Painter Babu’ is directed by Ashok for ‘V.I.P. Films, Bombay’. It is produced by Manoj Kumar who also wrote the story and screenplay for this movie and had also done the editing.

The star cast of the film includes Rajiv Goswami (debutant and in title role), Meenakshi Sheshadri (debutant), Neelima (debutant), and Virendra Sharma (also a debutant).  They were supported by Rakesh Bedi, Madan Puri, Om Shivpuri, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Bandini, Ram Mohan, Kamaldeep, Bharat Kapoor, CS Dubey, Birbal, Lalita Kumari, Meena T, Tun Tun, Sundar Taneja, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Shyam Jeet, Walia, Heera, Bhinda, Leela Mishra, Jankidas, Sudhir, Mohan Choti, Shammi, Dinesh Hingoo, Aruna Irani, Kamini Kaushal and others. Singer Mahendra Kapoor had a special role in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.03.1983.

This movie has seven songs written by three lyricists viz. Manoj Kumar, Qamar Jalalabadi and Qateel Shifai. Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar, and Bhupinder Singh have given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of the songs in this movie is as given below.

S.No. Song Title
01 Ho, ham kuchh bhi rakh le naam uskaa
02 Painter Babu, I love you
03 Kab Talak Shamma Jali Yaad Nahin” (Posted 11-07-2012)
04 O mere sajan barsaat mein aa  (Discussed Today)
05 Yaar kapadaa shaandaar hai
06 Hamkaa le chal yaaraa thhandi thhandi nahar ki kinaare
07 Jab yaad ki badli chhaati hai tab aankh meri bhar aati hai

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. On screen Meenakshi Sheshadri is lip syncing for Lata Mangeshkar’s voice and Mahendra Kapoor is singing for himself as plays a ‘boatman’ here in this song. Rajiv Goswami, the hero of the movie is seen in jail in the picturization of this song and many other artists perform on the boat in this song.

This song may remind some of us the song “Kho Gaya Hai Mera Pyaar” from the film ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ (1962) sung by Mahendra Kapoor. In that song the ‘hero’ is searching for his lost love, while in today’s song the heroine is missing her beloved and singing for him.

I have said above that few songs of this movie are very nice. E.g. the song “Kab Talak Shamma Jali Yaad Nahin” posted earlier on the blog, the songs “Jab Yaad Ki Badli Chhaati Hai”, “Hum Kuchh Bhi Rakh Len Naam Uska’ and the song beibg discussed today’s. But surprisingly none of these songs could make it to the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1983. However two other songs from this movie featured in the list – they are “Humka Layi Chal Yaara Thandi Thandi Nehar Ke Kinaare” (at rank 21) and “Yaar Ladki Shaandar Hai” (ranking at number 26).

Let us now listen to the today’s song and take a trip down memory lane (almost) thirty-eight years back. . .

 O mere sajan barsaat mein aa

And also wish a very happy birthday to Uttam Singh. . .

(Lyrics for this song are written by Manoj Kumar as I have noted from some alternate sources. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) does not mention the lyricist’s name for individual songs separately).

‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979) haa an impressive list of actors of the new wave films but I do not recall having read or heard about this film. So, I recently watched this film on a video sharing platform. The story of the film was interesting and was in keeping with Basu Chatterjee’s favourite subject – the lives of middle-class people in urban setting.

‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979) was produced under the banner of Jamu Productions and was directed by Basu Chatterjee. The star cast included Shabana Azmi, Shekhar Kapoor, Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab, Dina Pathak, Kiran Vairale, Vidya Sinha, Devendra Khandelwal, Arvind Deshpande etc. The film was based on a short story written by a well-known Hindi writer, Mannu Bhandari. Incidentally, Basu Chatterjee’s ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) was also based on Mannu Bhandari’s short story, ‘Yahi Sach Hai’. She has also written screen-play of the film ‘Swaami’ (1977), directed by Basu Chatterjee. Incidentally, Basu Chatterjee’s maiden directorial venture, ‘Saara Aakash’ (1969) was based on the first part of Rajendra Yadav’s novel of the same name. Rajendra Yadav is the husband of Mannu Bhandari.

Mannu Bhandari is one of the pioneers of Hindi literary movement called ‘Nayi Kahaani’ (New Story). Under this movement, stories are written based on the real-life experiences. She generally writes short stories on middle class women who is financially independent and intellectually capable to share the responsibilities on equal footing with men. Most of the character in her short stories are woman-centric. I have given story-writer’s background just to give an idea as to how the story in the film unfolds.

Shekhar (Shekhar Kapoor) and Lekha (Shabana Azmi) are from small towns who had made Mumbai their work place. Both are in love with each other and wants to get married. But their families are against this marriage because both belong to different castes. One day, both of them get married under Special Marriage Act, without the knowledge of their respective parents and start living in a small rented tenement. In the evening they spend time with their theatre friends with Sushma (Zarina Wahab) and Dinesh (Amol Palekar) being part of their friend circle, among others.

Sushma and Dinesh love each other but Sushma’s father is against this marriage. The real cause for the opposition to the marriage is that Sushma is the only bread-winner for the family, her father being unemployed for months. Both of them are encouraged by Shekhar and Lekha to get registered marriage which they follow and a date is decided for the registered marriage. In the group, there is Sipra (Vidya Sinha) who has lost her husband at a very young age with a small kid to look after. Lekha encourages her to start a play school for the small children and arranges the students and a place to start the play school. She is helped by her theater friends. (I think, the characters of Sushma, Dinesh and Sipra have been introduced just to jextapose the problems which have been faced by Shekhar and Lekha).

In all these efforts and also due to change of climate from town to Mumbai, Lekha is not keeping good health. Shekhar advises her to visit his parent’s house in a small town for few days for a change which she reluctantly agrees. Earlier, she had visited the place with Shekhar after the marriage for a very short stay. This time, Lekha stays for a longer period and during the initial period, she is quite happy with open sky, greenery all around and more importantly, the easy life away from the hustle bustle of Mumbai.

Within a few days of her stay, Lekha realises that all is not well in the house. The house has been divided into two parts with one part being occupied by Shekhar’s uncle and his family. Shekhar’s house is run by his mother (Dina Pathak) and Lekha’s mother-in-law (here after I will call her as ‘matriarch’) who is the final decision-maker in the house. Her father-in-law (Arvind Deshpande) has no say in the running of the house.

Shekhar’s younger brother, Shanker who is studying for BA wants to change his spectacles as his number has changed and he is getting head-ache. But his mother is not prepared to spend money for a new spectacles. On the other hand, she is prepared to spend money for some rituals to be conducted by a swami. Lekha tries to convince the matriarch by saying that Shankar’s study will be affected but it is of no use as she thinks that Shanker wanted to change the spectacle for more fashionable frame. (This shows the misplaced priorities for spending money in a rural/semi-urban setting).

In the house, the elder daughter-in-law who has become widow is looked down by the mother-in-law. Her younger brother, Diwakar (Devendra Khandelwal) occasionally visit her widow sister in the pretext of enquiring her well-being. But the real reason for this visit is to meet Gauri (Kiran Vairale), the younger sister of Shekhar. Both like each other but the matriarch is against Gauri meeting him since he happens to be the brother of her elder daughter-in-law whom she hates. With all these problems, Lekha feels suffocated even under the vast open place and a leisure life. She thinks of returning to Mumbai.

The matriarch finally decides to get Gauri married to a widower who is almost double the age of Gauri. Lekha tries to convince the matriarch that Gauri should get married to Diwakar who not only loves Gauri, but is also educated. Again, the matriarch has her own way and fix the date for Gauri’s marriage with a widower. Lekha is frustrated. She has to stop this marriage. Since Lekha has already decided to return to Mumbai, she tells both Gauri and Diwakar to run away from the town and board the same train in which she is returning to Mumbai. While Gauri agrees, Diwakar develops cold feet and politely refuse to become the part of the escape to Mumbai with Gauri. Lekha has no option but to take Gauri with her to Mumbai to stop her forcible marriage to a aged widower. In this plan, she takes into confidence, the matriarch’s sister-in-law and her elder daughter-in-law.

In Mumbai, Sushma and Dinesh have got married and are staying in Shekhar’s house while Lekha was out of Mumbai. They are happy as their parent have reconciled to the marriage. Shekhar and Lekha offer Dinesh and Sushma to continue to stay in their house until they find a house for themselves. She consoles Gauri that they will look for a suitable bridegroom for her in Mumbai. The film ends with Lekha’s dialogues as under:

‘Hum log yahin achche hain.
Ye muthi bhar aasmaan, ye chhoti si jagah
Lekin yahaan din mein hosla to hai’

[We are happy here (in Mumbai).
A fistful of sky, a small room.
But here there is an encouragement to survive].

I liked two aspects of the film. First, the director has refrained from showing the usual quarrelsome relationship between mother-in-law (Dina Pathak) and the daughter-in-law, Lekha (Shabana Azmi). The villainous elements in mother-in-law is visible but these do not turn into conflicts as Lekha treats her mother-in-law as a product of a small town and understands her psychology. Mother-in-law on the other hand restrains herself while dealing with Lekha as she realises that Lekha is not only financially independent but she is also educated to deal with such situations.

The second aspect of the film which I like is that there is element of realism when Lekha plans the escapes of Gauri and Diwakar to get married in Mumbai by registered marriage. That Diwakar develops cold feet to this plan is in keeping with the psychology of the small town where societal pressure can make the life of his parents miserable if he runs away with a bride to be. Whether Diwakar would eventually comes to Mumbai to get married to Gauri or not has been kept open in the film with a dialogue that if Diwakar does not turn up, Lekha and her friends would arrange for a suitable bridegroom for her.

The entire film is centered around the character of Shabana Azmi with Dina Pathak getting a fairly good exposure in the film. Shekhar Kapoor has early presence in the film. But during Lekha’s visit to town, he is no whre to be seen in the film. Finally, he comes back in the frame only towards the end of the film. The performance of Kiran Vairale as Gauri is very good despite this being her maiden film as per the credit titles. Rest of the cast like Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab, Vidya Sinha, are guest artists in the film.

This film reminded me that there was an adorable actress, Kiran Vairale who has left her mark in the films like ‘Naram Garam’ (1981), ‘Saath-Saath’ (1982), ‘Namkeen’ (1982), ‘Lorie’ (1984), ‘Saagar’ (1985) etc, suddenly vanished from the Hindi films. I checked her filmography and came to know that she has not been seen in films after 1986.

The only personal information I knew about Kiran Vairale at the time of her entry into films was that she was the daughter of Madhusudan Vairale, who was a cabinet minister in Government of Maharashtra and later a Member of Parliament of Indian National Congress from Akola. I found an interview of her, published in E-Times of India, January 28, 2017 which gave me some idea about her filmy career and why she left the films sometime in mid-1980s.

Kiran Vairale was exposed to acting for the first time in 1972 when she was in class XI at St. Anns High School, in Fort, Mumbai. Farooque Shaikh who was to direct a short play for the school, came to her class and out of of those called for audition, she was selected for the lead role in a 45-minute play, ‘Mirza Sahibaan’. After her matriculation, Kiran Vairale joined St Xavier’s College where Farooque Shaikh had studied and had formed Hindi drama/music group. She participated in inter-college dramas.

It was her association with IPTA from 1975 to 1984 which gave Kiran Vairale to brush up her acting. In IPTA, she did four plays with Farooque Shaikh, one among them was ‘Doosra Aadmi’ by Sagar Sarhadi. Later, the play was made into a film by Yashraj Films in 1977 in which she had a side role. Due to her IPTA connection, she got roles in many films during 1977-84, most of which were from top banners.

During her short tenure in Hindi films (1977-86), Kiran Vairale acted in 19 films some of which I have already mentioned above. In addition, she worked in one Kannada film ‘Pallavi Anu Pallavi’ (1983). In most of the films, she got the side roles like hero’s sister or heroine’s friend.

Sometime in the middle of 1980s, Kiran Vairale got married to Syed Fahd Asad Mumtaz, a nephew of Dilip Kumar (his sister, Taj Mumtaz’s son) and migrated to USA. Presently, Kiran Vairale (now Kiran Mumtaz) owns and runs one of the largest immigrant-based recruitment advertising agencies in New York.

Since I have also discussed Kiran Vairale in the article, I am presenting the song, ‘o shaam aayi rango mein rangi huyi’ from ‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979), sung by Lata Mangeshkar which is picturised on Kiran Vairale. The song is written by Yogesh which is set to music by Salil Chowdhury.

It is a boat song in which Shabana Azmi is seen along with Devendra Khandelwal (Kiran Vairale’s love interest in the film) and Desh Maheshwari in the role of Kiran Vairale’s brother.

This is the second song of the film (out of 3 songs) to appear on the Blog. The video clip has got full song but sound quality is not so good while audio clip does not have 3rd antara of the song but sound quality is good.

Song-Ho o o shaam aayi rangon mein rangi huyi (Jeena Yahaan)(1979) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics(Based on Video Clip)(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ho o o shaam aayi rangon mein rangi huyi
paayal vaayal mere paanvon mein
koyi baandho laake nayi nayi
o o shaam aayi ee
rango nmein rangi huyi
paayal vaayal mere paanvon mein
koyi baandho laake nayi nayi
o shaam aayi ee
rangon mein rangi huyi

mujhe koyi nayi chunri dila do
mere liye naya kangna koyi laa do
ye soone se maathhe pe
kare cham cham kumkum ki
tum aisi koyi bindiya laga do
ho o o shaam aayi rangon mein rangi huyi

ye jaadoo kaisa hai jaanoon na
lage mujhe ye to jeewan mera sona
ye jaadoo kaisa hai jaanoon na
lage mujhe ye to jeewan mera sona
saja le tu nainon mein
dheere dheere ore manwa mere
koyi ek sapna salona
ho o shaam aayi ee
rangon mein rangi huyi

mere mann ki aasha adhoori
hogi ik din ye to kahin poori
mere mann ki aasha adhoori
hogi ik din ye to kahin poori
kabhi na main bhooloongi
sang sang tere saathi mere
beete ye jo shaam sindoori
ho o shaam aayi ee rangon mein rangi huyi
paayal vaayal mere paanvon mein
koyi baandho laake nayi nayi
ho o shaam aayi ee rangon mein rangi huyi
