Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 11
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I could not have expected a better surprise than this one today. Aha, here is this wonderful memorable song that has got repeated in a film after 34 years. And now, that repeat itself is 28 years past. Wow, 62 years later we are going to talk about a song from 1957, which appeared once again in another film in 1991.

Yes, the iconic song of road travel that has been immortalized in the annals of Indian cinema. The tone and the context of the song – a vagabond traveler, a second hand truck, the endless roads, and a journey without a destination – it set the template for others to emulate. Footloose has no mark over this. Don’t we all, at some time in life, aspire for a meandering aimless trip, just for the sake of the journey. And just for the heck of it. The destination – may it exist or not, companions – may they be there or not. Desultory, adrift, without any aim, feckless – when the apparent random futility is the purpose of the endeavor. What a state to be in – being, and yet not being, nary a care in the world. Aah yes, the mind sometimes wants an escape of sorts – “Le Chala Jidhar Ye Dil Nikal Padey”.

The original from the film ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957) needs no introductions. The words, the melody and the imagery is etched in the mind, in all its details – Delhi roads of mid 1950s, sans traffic; the time when the traffic used to pass under the India Gate, and the Kashmere Gate (now these are monuments, cordoned off from the traffic); a miniscule encounter with a coy lady sitting in a car coming from the opposite direction; driving past the Taj Mahal; the long row of village belles carrying earthen pots of water, offering no grass (घास नहीं डालती 🙂 ) to the most handsome beseeching young man claiming to be laid out like a carpet at their feet – yes, all etched in the mind like it happened yesterday.

Time was when Sachin Da was quite, nay very selective, as always, in his choice of the singing voice for individual songs. And Kishore Da was never his ‘always’ choice for playback for Dev Anand. But Sachin Da has been proven right and right and right again, in his choice of singing voices. Imagine a “Khoya Khoya Chaand. . .”, or “Dil Ka Bhanwar. . .” or “Tu Kahaan Ye Bataa. . .” or “Hum Bekhudi Mein. . .” in a voice other than Rafi Sb, and a “Jaayen To Jaayen Kahaan. . .” in a voice other than Talat Sb, or the jazzy “Hum Dum Se Gaye. . .” in a voice other than Manna Dey, or the magnificent “Ye Raat Ye Chandni. . .”, or “Na Tum Hamen Jaano. . .” or “Chup Hai Dharti. . .” or “Yaad Aa Gayin Wo. . .” in a voice other than Hemant Da. It just will not stick in the imagination. Sachin Da got the best, the most suitable voice for the song, and after listening to them, the only verdict is – it cannot be bettered. In all the outings that Sachin Da shared with Dev Anand, apparently ‘Funtoosh’ (1956) and ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970) are the only two collaborations wherein we hear Kishore Da as the only voice playing back for Dev Anand. In all other films they have done together, Sachin Da has used a combination of different voices for Dev Sb. ‘Baazi’ (1951) also has only Kishore Da’s voice backing up Dev Anand for “Dil Ye Kya Cheez Hai. . .”, but then it is the only male voice song in the film, and that too, a song that only Kishore Da can do justice to.

And not just for Dev Sb. Sachin Da also has Rafi Sb and Kishore Da playing back for Rajesh Khanna in ‘Aradhana’ (1969), and Rafi Sb, Kishore Da and Manhar as the singing voices for Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Abhimaan’ (1973). Here was a music director who had his finger not on the pulse of public appeal, but on the pulse of divining which voice is the most suitable for a particular melody, a particular mood, and a particular situation.

And so, coming to the surprise that I mentioned in the first line of this write up. As I picked up this song for creating the next post in the series of repeat songs, a realization hit home. Today is the birth anniversaries of the two stalwarts who created the original song in 1957 – Sachin Da and Majrooh Sb. For Majrooh Sb, it is the centenary celebration, and for Sachin Da it is the 113th. Actually, Majrooh Sb’s info was already in mind since last night, as I was preparing Sadanand ji’s excellent write up for this great poet. And the rest of the coincidental links fell in place as I picked up this song for today’s post.

The film ‘Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin’ from 1991, is a popular hit romantic comedy from its time. It is remake of the storyline of the iconic ‘Chori Chori’ from 1956, which had the lead pair billing of Nargis and Raj Kapoor. And in turn, ‘Chori Chori’ is following the same storyline as the 1934 Hollywood hit film ‘It Happened One Night’, starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, and directed by the legendary Frank Capra. This theme has also been used in other films in Kannada and Tamil. In later years, we also see ‘Jab We Met’ in 2007, based somewhat loosely on the same storyline.

The film is produced by Gulshan Kumar and is directed by Mahesh Bhatt. The lead pair is Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt. By 1991, Aamir was already an acknowledged star in the industry, and Pooja was just beginning her career. For both of them, this film proved to be a strong fillip for their individual careers.

The caper is well known – a spoilt heiress of a rich businessman flees from home, to be with the person she believes, wrongly of course, she is in love with. On the way, she meets another boy, the hero of the story, who helps her to get to her target, and eventually lands her back at her father’s home. As an outcome of the road adventures that are shared by the boy and the girl, they inadvertently and without realizing it till quite late in the storyline, fall in love with each other. And the movie ends with the girl fleeing once again (with the help of a very co-operative father) on the way to the altar, to be with the person she is truly in love with.

When I came to this connection, I was/am quite astounded. What a selection of a song for a memory reprisal. The original song with Dev Sb in the driver’s seat, is about an aimless road adventure. And in this film, the lead protagonists are going thru a road adventure of their own making, trying to save themselves from police, the detectives in pursuit and the general public who have been made aware of the runaway girl through newspaper ads and posters.

On their runaway adventure, there is car breakdown. It is taken into a garage for repairs. The mechanic departs briefly to get some welding work done from outside. The boy-girl pair are alone in the garage. The radio on the mechanic’s desk is playing. And as the mechanic departs, on comes this song on the radio waves. It catches the attention of the boy, who requests the girl to increase the volume on the radio. He is quite taken in with this ‘मस्त’ (catchy, engrossing) song. Coming close to the girl he takes her in his arms and they begin to dance to the tune. Their eyes meet. There is that oh so lovely pause in everything. Something tingles and connects. There is surprise and uncertainty on the faces of both of them. In the eyes, there is also an expectation of a liking that is so demure and endearing. It is one of those moments that feels like eternity. And yes, magic.

Till that ‘पाजी’ (scoundrel) mechanic barges in with a newspaper in hand announcing that the girl’s father is publicly searching for her. The moment of magic is so brutally broken.

The repeat song is the original. In this scene, somewhat less than two stanzas are played. Of course this is not listed in the songs of the film and does not appear on its cassette or CD. And so, in this post, I am retaining the original credits for this everlasting song.

And yes, once again, celebrating the anniversaries of the two of the greatest song-music creators in the Indian film industry. “Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke. . .” – goodness, what a fantastic tagline.

Song – Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke, Hum Se Kuchh Na Boliye  (Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin) (1991) Singers – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – SD Burman

Lyrics

hum hain raahi pyaar ke
hamse kuchh na boliye
hum hain raahi pyaar ke
hamse kuchh na boliye
hum hain raahi pyaar ke
hamse kuchh na boliye
jo bhi pyaar se milaa
hum usi ke ho liye
hum usi ke ho liye
jo bhi pyaar se milaa
hum usi ke ho liye

dard bhi hamen qubool
chain bhi hamen qubool
dard bhi hamen qubool
chain bhi hamen qubool
hamne har tarah ke phool
haar mein piro liye
hamne har tarah ke phool
haar mein piro liye
jo bhi pyaar se milaa
hum usi ke ho liye
hum usi ke ho liye
jo bhi pyaar se milaa
hum usi ke ho liye

dhoop thi naseeb mein
to dhoop mein liyaa hai dam
dhoop thi naseeb mein
to dhoop mein liyaa hai dam
chaandni mili to hum
chaandni mein so liye
chaandni mili to hum
chaandni mein . . .

हम हैं राही प्यार के
हमसे कुछ न बोलिए
हम हैं राही प्यार के
हमसे कुछ न बोलिए
हम हैं राही प्यार के
हमसे कुछ न बोलिए
जो भी प्यार से मिला
हम उसी के हो लिए
हम उसी के हो लिए
जो भी प्यार से मिला
हम उसी के हो लिए

दर्द भी हमें कुबूल
चैन भी हमें कुबूल
दर्द भी हमें कुबूल
चैन भी हमें कुबूल
हमने हर तरह के फूल
हार में पिरो लिए
हमने हर तरह के फूल
हार में पिरो लिए
जो भी प्यार से मिला
हम उसी के हो लिए
हम उसी के हो लिए
जो भी प्यार से मिला
हम उसी के हो लिए

धूप थी नसीब में
तो धूप में लिया है दम
धूप थी नसीब में
तो धूप में लिया है दम
चाँदनी मिली तो हम
चाँदनी में सो लिए
चाँदनी मिली तो हम
चाँदनी में ॰ ॰ ॰

“Jhoothha Kahin Ka”(1979) was directed by Ravi Tandon for R M Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rishi Kapoor, Nitu Singh, Rakesh Roshan, Prem Chopra, Om Shivpuri, Satyen Kappoo, Indrani Mukherji, Helen, Preeti Ganguly, Keshto Mukherji, Ifthikhar, Hari Shivdasani, Yunus Parvez, Indira Bansal, Mushtaq Merchant, Hungama, Harish, Dharamveer, R P Sethi, Brahm Bhardwaj, Vandana Shashtri, Vikas Anand, O P Goyal, Gauri Verma etc in it.

This movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Jhoothha Kahin Ka”(1979) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishhore Kumar with his usual energy, accompanied by chorus. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I had planned to post this song long long ago (as post number 10970). I do not know how I missed posting it at that time. The video of the song was available then and now it had vanished. A video (with some East European voiceover) is still available, but the video link of that time that I had noted down with the lyrics has vanished by now. The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and many others as a club song.

During the late 1970s, I considered the songs on this movie as infra dig. But now the songs of this movie are regarded as truly classic songs. when one looks at the quality of songs that got created in the years that followed, I had to grudgingly agree that yes, the songs of this movie are indeed classics vis a vis the songs that followed.

Just look at the songs that have been covered earlier:

“Chalti Ka naam Gaadi” (1958) was a brainchild of Kishore Kumar. Legend has it that Kishore Kumar produced this movie to get over his tax problems. He wanted to produce a movie that he hoped would flop at the box office and that would enable him to balance his accounts for income tax purposes. He gave away the rights of this movie to his secretary Anoop Sharma who is credited as the Producer of this movie. The movie was directed by Satyen Bose and the movie included the three Ganguly brothers namely Ashok Kumar, Anoop Kumar and Kishore Kumar as well as the would be wife of Kishore Kumar namely Madhubala.
