#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.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saudaagar” released on 26th october 1973, that means it is 15-days short of 47 years ago. The movie had Nutan paired with Amitabh Bachchan (he was yet to taste success, when he signed up for the movie). He played a ‘Gur’ trader who made a living out of ‘gur’ made from Date-syrup by Mahzubeen -a widow played by Nutan. He meets Phoolbanu (Padma Khanna), likes her, and approaches her father with a marriage proposal. Phoolbanu’s father (Murad) asks for ‘Mehar’ which Moti (AB) does not have. So he proposes marriage to Mahzubeen, so that he doesn’t have to pay her for the ‘gur-making’ and save up for the mehar by the end of the ‘gur-season’. At the end of the season he divorces Mahzubeen and again approaches Phoolbanu’s father who is satisfied with the mehar and Moti marries Phoolbanu. But he faces a problem when the ‘gur’ as the product made by Phoolbanu is not on the same level as the previous season and Moti loses customers and business. He is forced to seek out Mahzubeen who has by the married a widower who is honest to her that he wants a mother for his children. Moti requests her to make a few “vats of gur’ she is at first upset at him for the way he had treated her. She relents on seeing Phoolbanu and Moti’s pitiable condition. The movie ends with the two ladies meeting each other affectionately signifying that Mahzubeen had forgiven Moti’s selfishness for the sake of his family.

“Saudaagar” was directed by Sudhendu Roy who was a art director, production designer who later on became a director with Rajshri Production’s “Uphaar” (1971). He was associated with Bimal Roy from 1958/9 in movies like “Madhumati” “Sujata” etc and was active in Bollywood till 1999. His work could be seen in Subhash Ghai’s “Karz” Karma” etc, Yash Chopra’s “Silsila” “Chandni” etc and right on till “Vijeta” (1996; not to be confused with the movie produced by Shashi Kapoor). His youngest daughter Sharmishta has followed in her father’s footsteps.

Coming back to “Saudaagar”, it was based on the Bengali story “Ras” by Narendranath Mitra and was produced by Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri Pictures. Ravindra Jain was the writer and composer of its songs. If I am not wrong this was his first Hindi movie. He was born in Aligarh to a homemaker mother and Sanskrit pandit father. He was sent for training in music by his father who recognized his talent very early and he started singing bhajans at temples when he was young.

We have been entertained by his songs in Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gata Chal and numerous other movies. In this post from “Saudaagar” Atulji has made an interesting observation:- Ravindra Jain made a mark for himself with songs sung by singers other that the legends who were active then. But of course he had Asha, Lata, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey singing a song each for him in this movie. Todays’ song is in Mohd Rafi’s vocals, a very soft song typical Rafi Magic.

This movie had seven songs of which 5 are there on the blog as under

Song Posted on
Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon 4 April 2009
Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye 15 april 2009
Tera mera saath rahe 17 april 2009
Door hai kinaara 18 april 2009
Champa nahin chameli nahin 4 april 2019

Another interesting thing about this movies journey on the blog is it made its debut in April of 2009. We had four songs from that movie in that month. And the next post from the movie happened after a ten year gap in 2019 under the Blog Ten Year Challenge.

Remembering Ravindra Jain today on his anniversary, it is five years since he left this mortal world, but he will be immortal because of his work.

“Son of Sindbad” and “Daughter of Sindbad” were both released in 1958. So it seems to me that they were twins. 🙂

“Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) was directed by Ratilal for Starland Productions movie, Bombay. The movie had Jairaj, Nadira, Pran, Maruti, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor etc in it. The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi , Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Anjum Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta. Incidentally, Chitragupta was the music director in “Son of Sindbad” (1958) as well.

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

Hindi Songs in Bangla Film – 29
———————————-

I became aware about the stories built around the fictional character of Byomkesh Bakshi, the murder mystery solver when a TV serial based on these stories was telecast on the Doordarhsan’s National channel in early 1990s. The serial was directed by Basu Chatterjee with Rajit Kapoor playing the role of Byomkesh Bakshi and KK Raina as Ajit, his assistant. During those days, the character of Byomkesh Bakshi became known all over India. ‘Byomkesh’ became synonymous with persons having inquisitive nature.

I had watched most of the episodes during those years.  The episodes of this serial were recently re-telecast on the Doordarshan Channel during the Covid-19 lockdown. What I liked about the serial was restrained acting by Rajit Kapur as an investigator in a cool and calm mind, trying to solve the mysteries of murders with ‘much ado about nothing’ manner. In the end, the culprits were mostly the ones who were least suspected by the audience. This made the each and every episode a suspense thriller and the audience were glued to the show till the end.

Sharadindhu Bandopadhyay, the creator of Byomkesh Bakshi had written 32 published stories on his fictional character during 1932-70. He was associated with Bombay Talkies during 1938-40 as a story-writer for the films like ‘Bhabhi’ (1938), ‘Vachan’ (1938), ‘Navjeevan’ (1939), ‘Kangan’ (1939), ‘Durga’ (1939), ‘Punar Milan’ (1940) and ‘Azaad’ (1940). In 1970, he had started writing the 33rd story of Byomkesh Bakshi with ‘Bisupati Badh’ as its title. However, before the completion of the story, he died in 1970.

Some of the stories of Byomkesh Bakshi were made into feature films, mainly in Bengali. I got a list of 20 Bangla films made on Byomkesh Bakshi between 1967-2019. Probably, a few more films may have been made on Byomkesh Bakshi with different titles. One film was made in Hindi titled ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’ (2015) under the banner of Yash Raj Films.

Last week, Partha Chanda, one of the regular visitors to our Blog conveyed to me that the Bangla film, ‘Har Har Byomkesh’ (2015) had 3 Hindi songs. I watched the film on one of the OTT media services with English subtitles. The film is based on one of 32 stories – ‘Banhi Patanga’ (English title: ‘Moth and Flame’). In Urdu, this  story could have got the title of ‘Shama and Parwaana’.  It is directed by Arindam Sil. The story is set in around mid-1940s. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Byomkesh (Abir Chatterjee), his wife, Satyabati (Sohoni Sarkar) and his friend Ajit (Ritwick Chakraborty) have come from Kolkata on a holiday to Varanasi. They are the guests of DSP Pandey (Harsh Chhaaya). However, in a couple of days, Byomkesh co-incidentally gets involved in solving the murder mystery in Varanasi.

Pandey had received an invitation from Deepnarayan Singh (Adil Hussain), a rich zamindar to attend a party along with his guests in his palace for celebrating his cure from a liver ailment which had made him bed-ridden for about 5 months. In the party, Byomkesh was introduced, among others, to zamindar’s physician, Dr Palit (Dipankar Dey), Debnarayan (Indradip Dasgupta), the ‘good for nothing’ nephew of Deepnarayan, Shakuntala (Nusrat Jahan), the wife of Deepnarayan who is half of his age and whom he had married rather forcefully after the death of his first wife. During the party, Inspector (Shadab Kamal) came to the palace and informed Dr Palit of robbery in his clinic. However, not much monetary loss was reported. What could be the reason for robbery?

On the very next day, Deepnarayan dies soon after Dr. Palit administers injection for his liver problem. DSP Pandey rushes to the palace along with Byomkesh and Ajit. After interrogating those present in the palace including Dr. Palit and other relatives of Deepnarayan, Byomkesh comes to the conclusion that Deepnarayan has been murdered, possibly for one of the two motives – to corner his vast property by the interested relatives and second, to get rid of him due to extra-marital relationship.

As the investigation progresses, the list of suspects grows in the eyes of Byomkesh. The first is Debnarayan, the nephew of the deceased who would be the immediate beneficiary of the vast property as Deepnarayan has no children. Debnarayan’s wife, Chandni could also be a suspect as after the death, Shakuntala, now widow, would lose power in the palace. Chandni would be the de fact owner of the property as her husband, Debnarayan is not a smart person. Third, the Manager of the estate of Deepnarayan who. with his boss Deepnarayan’s death would get more freedom in managing the financial assets with the scope for misappropriation of money for his own benefits.

Even Shankutala, the widow of Deepnarayan is not above suspicion who is now 3-month pregnant. Byomkesh regards this as an illicit pregnancy as she has become pregnant when Deepnarayan had been bedridden for nearly 5 months with 24 hours surveillance from nurses on him because of his serious illness. Of course, Dr Palit is also in suspect’s list as it is only after he administered the injection, Deepnarayan had died. It is possible that he could have been influenced by any one of the suspects with an offer of handsome monetary rewards for administering poison to Deepnarayan.  And lastly, Narmada Shankar (Subrata Dutta) who is from the same native place as Shakuntala has been friendly with her and has an access to meet her in the palace.

Finally, Byomkesh finds the killer and he is not from the above list. He reveals to all those present in the palace as to how he cracked the case. The film ends with Byomkesh, his wife, Satyabati and Ajit taking a stroll over the ghats of Varanasi as their holidays have just now begun.

I was curious about the title of the film, ‘Har Har Byomkesh’. After watching the film, I guess that the director wanted to give an indication that the whole episode took place in Varanasi, the city of Mahadev (Lord Shiva). So salutation, ‘Har Har Mahadev’ became ‘Har Har Byomkesh’. Interestingly, ‘Vyomkesh’ (pronounced in Bangla as ‘Byomkesh) is made up of two words, ‘Vyom’ (Air, space) and ‘Kesh’ (hair or jatta). When Lord Shiva is doing tandav nrutya, his hairs swing into the air. So Vyomkesh is another name for Lord Shiva. This is the interpretation I got on the internet about ‘Vyomkesh’.

‘Har Har Byomkesh’ (2015) has 3 songs – all in the sub-dialects of Hindi. This is not surprising as the story is set in Varanasi (as against Patna in original story). All 3 songs are composed in three different genres of Hindustani semi-classical music – Thumri, Chaiti and Bhajan. I am presenting here a Chaiti song “Roothe Sajan Kaise Manaawe Ho Raama” sung by Sabina Mumtaz Alam, Hindustani classical singer. The song is written by Sutapa Basu and is set to music by Bickram Ghosh, also a Hindustani classical musician and a fusion music director.

It is a mujra song which is being performed by a mujra singer in the midst of her admirers led by Debnarayan (Indradip Dasgupta), Narmada Shankar (Subrta Dutta) and their cronies in a boat sailing in River Ganga near the Varanasi ghats. Ajit (Ritwick Bandopadhyay), Byomkesh’s friend has gone for a stroll on the ghats of Varanasi. He is surprised to find Debnarayan on the boat enjoying the mujra performance just one day after the death of his uncle, Deepnarayan.

Song – Roothe Sajan Kaise Manaawe Ho Raama (Har Har Byomkesh) (2015) Singer – Sabina Mumtaz Alam, Lyrics – Sutapa Basu, MD – Bickram Ghosh

Lyrics

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 25
—————————————————————————

Today is 1 may 2020, viz the first day of the fifth month of the year 2020.

When I look back on this day ten years ago, I find that three songs were covered that day (1 may 2010). These songs were :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa Mehmaan-1974 03 of 06 songs posted
Tumhaari mast nazar gar idhar nahin hoti Dil Hi To Hai-1963 All songs covered
Pyaar to ik din honaa thaa Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati-1969 05 songs posted

So it means that two movies are eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge” today.

One of these two movies is “Mehmaan”(1974).

This movie had six songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog. The movie made its debut ibn the blog this day ten years ago !

Here are the three songs of “Mehmaan”(1974) that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa 01.05.2010
Meri chaahat rahegi hameshaa jawaan 26.04.2012
Ram Raheem Krishn Kareem … 25.10.2017

I may have discussed three songs from the movie, but these songs were spaced several years apart. Second song from the movie was discussed in 2012 and the third in 2017.

So, despite covering three songs from the movie, I do not remember anything about this movie. So when I watched the song under discussion today, I had some great and inadvertent fun watching the picturisation. I could see a very young Rekha lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice, but who was the gentleman, jumping up and down. He appeared somewhat familiar ! And then it hit me, Arrey, it was Vishwajeet ! He was well past his prime by 1974, but he was still trying to turn the clock back rather valiantly. 🙂

The song starts as a motor boat song. Then the duo shift to a park, where the song becomes a classic running around the trees song- as I S Johar would have described it. 🙂

Then the duo jump over on a jeep. End of the song finds Rekha alighting from the jeep and walking off in a huff, determined not to go back to the jeep. But she quickly has a change of heart when she finds monkeys ahead. 🙂

Lyrics are by Sahir Ludhianvi. Normally known for penning songs espousing the caause of social justice, communal harmony, women emancipation and other such noble causes, Here he is called upon to pen a rather more mundane kind of a song- viz a romantic song. And the lyrics are quite cute. “Chhoona mat mujhe”- is the warning issued by the lady. “royegi jo chhoone waala koi na mila”- is the response. Then she relents and sets the terms that she is agreeable to this “chhoona” business provided it is carried out gently. 🙂

Quite an interesting and fun song, even if much of the fun is inadvertent. This is a song from nearly five decades ago. I have been watching this song and listening to it for the first time in true tubelight fashion. I got to watch this song only because the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 24
—————————————————————————

“Anmol Moti”(1969) was produced and directed by S D Narang. The movie had Jeetendra, Babita, Rajendra Nath, Jayant, Aruna Irani, Shabnam, Jagdeep, Jayant, DK Sapru, Veena, Tuntun, Saul George, Gajanan Jagirdar, Jeevan, Hari Shivadasani, Jagdish Raj, Meena T, Prakash Thapa, Niranjan Sharma, Iftekhar, Uma Datt, Kanu Roy, Tiwari, Abhimanyu Sharma, Om Sahani, Baby Meena, Baby Mozal, Baby Neena, Basant, Hansa, Khursheed, Lajpat Mehra, Miss Gillain, Miss Kerian, Moolchand, Moses, Mrs Hacker, Narbada Shankar, Raj Deep, Rajan Kapoor, Ramesh, Ramlal, Razak, Sham, Sudha, Sundeep, Susheela, Uma Khosla etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past. The movie had made its debut ten years ago on this very day with the song Ae jaane chaman tera goraa badan .

That day ten years ago saw only two songs covered in the blog. The other song apart from the “Anmol Moti”(1969) debut song was Akela hoon main hamsafar dhoondhhta hoon from “Jaal”(1969). This movie has since been YIPPEED in the blog.

Only two songs from “Anmol Moti”(1969) have been covered in the blog. So there is choice of as many as four songs today as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post. As it is, Prakashchandra as well as Avinash Scrapwala both sent songs for this challenge, and they sent different songs ! Prakashchandra sent his contribution earlier, so I am going with the song sent by him as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This is one song that I have listened to a lot of time. It is one of those iconic songs that I used to listen to during my formative years, even though I had no clue what movie these songs were from. I have listened to this song many a times, on loudspeakers as well as Radio. It is only now, more than 50 years later, on this day 25 April 2020 that I have come to know that this iconic song is from “Anmol Moti”(1969). I can be that kind of a tubelight. 🙂

The song is picturised as a boat/ river song on Babita, with Jeetendra also making a belated appearance. Many other ladies (who appear like foreigners, perhaps from Soviet Union) are also seen in the picturisation, performing synchronised swimming, underwater swimming etc.

As mentioned earlier, lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who pips Avinash Scrapwala to the post for this “Blog Ten Year Challenge” opportunity.

‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) is a dubbed Hindi version of Bangla film, ‘Paari’ (1966). Produced by Pranoti Bhattacharya (nee Ghosh, wife of Abhi Bhattacharya) under the banner of New India Pictures, Calcutta, the filmias directed by Jagannath Chatterjee. The main star cast includes Dharmendra, Pranoti Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Bikash Roy, Dilip Roy, Satya Banerjee, Padma Devi, Renuka Roy etc. Dilip Kumar had a guest role of a Warden of Andaman Jail. The film is based on a story written by the famous Bengali writer, Jarasandha (real name: Charu Chandra Chakraborty). Pranoti Ghosh is not new to the Hindi films. Earlier, she had worked in Hindi films like ‘Phulwaari’ (1951), ‘Parichay’ (1954), ‘Jagriti’ (1954), ‘Love Marriage’ (1959) and ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962).

‘Paari’ (1966, Bangla film) is the only film in which Dharmendra got opportunity to work with his childhood idol, Dilip Kumar even though he had only one or two scenes with his idol. However, Dharmendra could not get a full-fledged Hindi film to work with Dilip Kumar. He felt that some ‘jinx’ came on the way and he could not fulfil his dream of working with Dilip Kumar in a Hindi film. The ‘jinxed’ examples are set out below:

Dharmendra was to work in ‘Aadmi’ (1968) with Dilip Kumar but his role ultimately went to Manoj Kumar. In 1979, his dream of working with Dilip Kumar almost became a reality when Nasir Hussain selected Dharmendra and Rishi Kapoor in the role of sons of Dilip Kumar in ‘Zabardust’. However, after a few days of shooting, the film was shelved reportedly due to creative differences between the director and Dilip Kumar about the storyline. Later, Nasir Hussain made the film afresh in 1985 with Sanjeev Kumar, Sunny Deol and Rajiv Kapoor with some changes in the story. BR Chopra selected Dharmendra to play the role of Chandragupta in ‘Chanakya’ (1980s) in which Dilip Kumar had a role of Chanakya. However, the film got shelved due to financial problems faced by the producer. When Dilip Kumar got chance to act and direct ‘Kalinga’ (UR – 1990s), Dharmendra tried his best to get a role for himself but Dilip Kumar told him that he could not be fitted in any worthwhile role in the film.
(These are taken mostly from interviews Dharmendra gave to film journalists at various times).

The chance which Dharmendra got to work with Dilip Kumar in the Bangla film ‘Paari’ (1966) was like a ‘consolation prize’ for him having done only a couple of scenes with Dilip Kumar in the film towards the end. The story of the film which was dubbed in Hindi with a new title as ‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) is as under:

The story is set in the pre-independence period in a rural setting in Bengal. The film starts with a Jail Warden asking Tara Sen (Pranoti Ghosh), a prisoner as to why she has requested to be transferred to Andaman Jail. From here onwards, the story is unfolded in a flash-back mode until her sea journey to Andaman Jail.

Tara is the only daughter of a landlord in a village. She is fond of walking in the midst of nature in the village along with her childhood friend Ghanshyam (Dharmendra) who is looked after by the landlord. Because both of them indulge in some sort of mischiefs in the village, Ghanshyam’s gaurdian sends him to the city for schooling. After few years, Ghanshyam returns to the village as he failed in matriculation examination. He is employed by the landlord. Tara and Ghanshyam like each other but due to societal constraints, they refrain from expressing their love for each other to culminate into a marriage. After all, Tara is the daughter of a wealthy landlord and Ghanshyam is a poor commoner who works for landlord.

Tara’s parents are looking for a suitable boy for her marriage. In the meanwhile, she falls prey to the lust of the village Daroga, Badal Gupta (Abhi Bhattacharya) who is a drunkard and a womaniser. Tara’s parents try their best to take care of her by arranging her marriage with a suitable boy. However, the scandal comes to the notice of the father of the groom, a landlord who humiliate Tara and her father in derogatory words. Ghanshyam gets angry that his employer and Tara are getting insulted. He starts dispersing groom’s side supporters by wielding his lathi which accidentally kills the groom’s father. Ghanshyam is arrested on murder charge. Tara’s father is also under threat of arrest as an accomplice.

With scandal looming on her head coupled with police case, Tara decides to marry Daroga, Badal Gupta provided he drops the charges against her father and Ghanshyam which he agrees. They get married. Tara tries her best to make her husband to mend ways and give up his vices but fails. One day, Tara comes to know that her husband is going to spoil the life of an innocent girl who happens to be her friend. She confronts him. In fits of anger, she stabs her husband resulting in the life-threatening injuries to him. Tara is arrested as she has admitted the crime.

While in hospital, Daroga requests his wife Tara to change her statement to police to say that he accidentally fell on a sharp instrument so that she is saved from the jail and more importantly to preserve his self-respect as he has never been defeated in his life, that too from a woman. Tara refuses to change her statement to the police. Badal dies of stab injuries. Tara is jailed for the murder of her husband.

In the meanwhile, Tara comes to know that the court has awarded Ghanshyam the imprisonment for life and he is jailed in Andaman. She remembers the sacrifice made by Ghanshyam to save her honour and wishes to be with him as he has no one to support in Andaman. She pleads with the Jail Warden to transfer her to Andaman Jail which is granted. The Warden of Andaman Jail (Dilip Kumar) is not prepared to accept her in the Andaman jail as she cannot stay with Ghanshyam as a prisoner who is on parole. The reason is that as per the Jail Manual, only the husband and wife prisoners can stay together not necessarily in prison but in the outskirts of the prison as well.

In the meantime, Warden has gone through their files and suggest to both of them to get married so that they can stay together in Andaman. Both Tara and Ghanshyam are not ready to get married to each other due to their conventional upbringing. The Warden shows his helplessness and orders her repatriation to her original prison. The next day, Tara runs away from the jail. The jail police forces fail to locate her. Ghanshyam is also on lookout for her but returns unsuccessful. The film ends with Ghanshayam returning to his room disappointed only to find Tara sitting in a corner of his room in a semi conscious state. Ghanshyam brings her to consciousness and for the first time they embrace each other.

The highlight of the film is the presence of Dilip Kumar in a special appearance in the role of the Warden of Andaman Jail. His presence suddenly galvanises the film for about the last 15 minutes. His fluency in dialogue delivery with voice control – both in Hindi (Bengali in Bangla version) and English is worth watching. The video of Dilip Kumar’s 15 minutes’ role in the film as a Warden is here for those interested in watching his performance.

‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) has three songs one of which is a Bangla pre-marriage folk song. I am presenting the first song from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is ‘Bandhu Re, Ye mann dole bole kya re koi jaane’ sung by Manna Dey. The song is set to music by Salil Chowdhury on the words of Haneef-Jackie whose names I heard for the first time. I have also listened to the equivalent song in the Bangla version of the film ‘Paari’ (1966) which is written and set to music by Salil Chowdhury. The same tune has been used for the Hindi version song which I feel, is more or less the translation of the Bangla version. Haneef-Jackie seems to be the pseudo names.

A small part of the song under discussion is also used as a background song on the day of the marriage of Tara (Pranoti Ghosh) with Badal Gupta (Abhi Bhattacharya). I like the prelude music of the song with a beautiful combination of musical instruments especially Flute, Sitar and Guitar which is partly available in the video clip but fully available on the audio clip. It is interesting to note that Manna Dey sings second stanza of the song with somewhat Bengali pronunciation.

With this song, ‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) makes its debut in the Blog.

Welcome all to this post, where, under the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’, we have another movie which has completed a ‘decade’ on the blog with only one of its song posted on the blog.

This movie is ‘Prem Bandhan-1978’*. And the song ‘main tere pyaar mein paagal’ from this movie was posted on the blog exactly ten years back i.e. on 27.01.2010.

Two more songs were posted on that day and the three songs posted that day were as given below;

Husn bhi hai udaas udaas Fareb-1953
Main tere pyaar mein paagal Prem Bandhan-1978

Browsing other songs from ‘Prem Bandhan-1978’ it is clear that only the above-mentioned song of this movie was the most popular song from this movie. It ranked at number 14 in the ‘annual list’ of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of the year ‘1979’. Since the movie was passed by the Censor Board on 26.12.1978 it must have been released in theatres in around year end 1978 or around first week of January’1979 I guess.

The title song from ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se-1978’ topped the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year followed by ‘aadmi musaafir hai’ from ‘Apnaapan-1977’.

The other movies released in 1978 and where music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal are as given below;

Songs from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’(two songs), ‘Phaansi’(one song), ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’(two songs) made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1978’.

Coming back to today’s movie, ‘Prem Bandhan-1978’ was directed by Ramanand Sagar for ‘Gouri Films Pvt. Ltd, Bombay’. It was produced by R.R. Nanda. It had Rajesh Khanna, Rekha, Moushami Chatterjee, Vikram, Keshto Mukherjee, Prema Narayan, A.K. Hangal, Lalita Pawar, Helen with Sheetal, Janki Dass, Bhagwan, Gopi Krishna, Mumtaz Begam, Birbal, V. Suri, Brahm Bharadwaj, Satyadev Dubey, Bhakatani, Surinder Bhatia, Manmauji, Ramlal, Kanwar Sarhadi, Dr. Jayant Abhyankar, Narbada Shankar, Chandru Atma, Sunder Taneja, Ram Avtar, Javed Khan.

This movie introduced Rippy Singh, Arvind Trivedi and Madhu Shah. Story of this movie was written by Suhridkar.

The screenplay was written by Ramanand Sagar, Satish Bhatnagar, Suhridkar. Satish Bhatnagar also wrote the dialogues of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Lachmandass while C.L. Kavish wrote the script of this movie.

Lyrics of this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) lists total six number of songs in this movie. The voices of Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey and Chandru Atma were used for the songs in this movie).
(HFGK Vol V mentions the voice of Pankaj in today’s song however in the movie credits his name is not appearing among the list of Singers).

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 26.12.1978.

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 sung by Pankaj, Asha Bhonsle, and Kishore Kumar. Rajesh Khanna and Rekha are lip syncing in the voices of Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle respectively. Prema Narayan and many others are also seen in the picturization of this song.

The song is interesting and nice to listen to and watch. (I think if the video of the full song would have been available it would have been more enjoyable to watch. None the less we can still listen and enjoy this beautiful composition).

As mentioned above I could not locate the full video of this song. However, the audio of the full song is available and the lyrics are noted as per the audio link of this song. I guess that this song was also edited in the movie or maybe it is edited in the online version of this movie.

I have not watched this movie and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …

This song is also a nice one and I am sure readers will also like this song like me.
Let us now enjoy the today’s song …
