“Tamanna”(1969) was directed by K P Atma for K S Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Shashikala, Agha, Nazima, Deven Verma, Nazeer Hussain, Sulochana, Sajjan, Achla Sachdev, Asit Sen, Krishn Dhaan, Rasheed Khan, Narbada Shankar, Kesri, Khairaati, Vimal Raj, Moolchand, Radheshyam, Sayyad, Md Ibrahim, Fatima, Santosh etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. To of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tamanna”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Rafi and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The O P Nayyarish Punjabi dance music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Mala Sinha, Biswajeet and others. It is a song that deserved to be better knon, but it ended up as an obscure song from an qually obscure movie.

Unnoticeably, ith this song, Kalyanji Anandji complete their 600th song in the blog as music directors.

Mohammed Rafi – 96th birth anniversary

—– Waqt ——-

Yeh waqt kya hai
yeh kya hai aakhir ke jo musalsal guzar raha hai
yeh jab na guzra thha
tab kahan thha
guzar gayaa hai to ab kahan hai
kahin to hogaa
kahan se aaya kidhar gayaa hai
yeh kab se kab tak ka silsilaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai
yeh waqi’ye
haadse
tasaadum
harek gham
aur har ek masarrat
har ek azziyat
har ek lazzat
har ik tabassum
har ek aansoo
har ek naghma
har ek khushboo
woh zakhm ka dard ho
ko ho lams ka jaadoo
khud apni awaaz ho ki mahaul ki sadaayen
yeh zehan mein banti aur bigadti hui fazaayen
woh fikr mein aaye zalzale hon ki dil ki halchal
tamaam ehsaas
saare jazbe
ye jaise patte hain
behte paani ki sateh par
jaise tayrte hain
abhi yehaan hain
abhi wahaan hain
aur ab hain ojhal
dikhaayi detaa nahin hai lekin
yeh kuchh to hai
jo ki beh rahaa hai
yeh kaisa dariya hai
kin pahaadon se aa rahaa hai
yeh kis samandar ko jaa rahaa hai

yeh waqt kya hai
kabhi kabhi main yeh sochtaa hoon
ki chalti gaadi se ped dekho
to aisa lagtaa hai
doosri simt jaa rahe hain
magar haqueeqat mein
ped apni jagah khade hain
to kya yeh mumkin hai
saarisadiyaan
qataar-andar-qataar apni jagah khadi hon
yeh waqt saakit ho
aur ham hi guzar rahe hon
is ek lamhe mein
saare lamhe
tamaam sadiyaan chhupi hui hon
na koyi ‘aayinda
na guzishtaa
jo ho chukaa hai
jo ho rahaa hai
jo hone waala hai
ho rahaa hai
main sochtaa hoon
ki kya yeh mumkin hai
sach ye ho
ki safar mein ham hain
guzarte ham hain
jise samajhte hain ham
guzarta hai
wo thhamaa hai
guzarta hai ye thhamaa huaa hai
ik aayi hai ye bataa huaa hai
hai munjamid
yaa pighal rahaa hai
kise khabar hai
kise pataa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

yeh kaaynaat-e-azeem
lagtaa hai
apni azmat se
aaj bhi mutma’een nahin hai
ki lamha lamha woh
wasee’a-tar aur wasee’a-tar hoti jaa rahi hai
yeh apni baahen pasaarti hai
yeh kehkashaaon ki ungliyon se
nayi khalaaon ko chhoo rahi hai
agar yeh sach hai
to har tasavvur ki had se baahar
magar kahin par
yaqeenan aisa koyi khalaa hai
ki jis ko
in kehkashaaon ki ungliyon ne
ab tak chhuaa nahin hai
khalaa
jahaan kuchh huaa nahin hai
khalaa
ki jis ne kisi se bhi ‘kun’ sunaa nahin hai
jahaan abhi tak khudaa nahinhai
wahan
koyi waqt bhi na hogaa
ye kaayenaat-e-azeem
ik din
chhuegi
is an-chhuye khalaa ko
aur apne saare wajood se
jab pukaaregi
‘kun’
to waqt ko bhi janam milegaa
agar janam hai to maut bhi hai

main sochtaa hoon
yeh sach nahin hai
ki waqt ki koyi ibtidaa hai na intehaa hai
yeh dor lambi bahot hai
lekin
kahin to is dor ka siraa hai
abhi yeh insaan ulajh rahaa hai
ki waqt ke is qafas mein
paida huaa
yahin woh palaa badhaa hai
magar use ‘ilm ho gayaa hai
ke waqt ke iss qafas se baahar bhi ik fazaa hai
to sochtaa hai
vo puchhtaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

– Javed Akhtar –

I had heard a part of the above poem and just decided to reproduce it in a post. But while typing the whole saga, it lost me on the way to the end. I am able to understand it word to word, but to understand what exactly Javedsahab is trying to say or ‘in ke kehne ka tatparya kya hai’, I will have to go deep. Or maybe not so deep and what he says is what he means.
______________________________________________

This terrible year is coming to an end. Human kind has endured a test of psychological strength this year. And has learned (hopefully) that even if places of worship are not open, the Almighty is reachable from anywhere, for the universe, the world and its occupants, owners and tenants, wheelers and dealers, the powerful and the poor, the destitute and the able bodied, are all His creations. The ‘khalaa’ that Javed Akhtar refers to in the poem above, is also the creation of the Almighty creator. So is the concept if ‘waqt’. Whether it is running away from you or towards you. The time is allotted to us, to live on this earth peacefully with other creations. Before I move on, ‘khalaa’ is space, in worldly terms is means ‘empty space’ and in celestial terms it is infinite.

Its Mohammed Rafi Sahab’s 96th birth anniversary on 24/12/2020. Usually for Rafi sahab’s anniversary posts, or for the century posts, Raja ji is invited to do the honors of writing a special post. But I am seizing the opportunity, this time round. It is Rafi Sahab birth anniversary post as well as the 3100th songs post by Rafi sahib on the blog. This post is also my 300th song post, so a special Rafi song is called for this occasion.

Two months ago, I was looking for a song by Usha Timothy to post for her birthday on 8th October. I found a song by her, but it turned out to be a group song. The audio clip was 11 minutes long. The song itself is more than 9 minutes. Myswar.com listed this as a two part song one by Suman Kalyanpur and Usha Timothy and another by Mohammad Rafi and Manna Dey. It is from the 1966 film “Sunehre Kadam” and is composed by Bulo C. Rani. The lyricist is Nyay Sharma.

This is a very special song I have come to realize it while writing the lyrics. I will have to list them so that I don’t miss any points:

1. It has the longest solo rally, for a group song by Rafi sahab and large part of this rally is with minimal music.
2. This must be the only song with these four singers together.
3. The way the repetition of lines is done throughout the song, with singing of the same line in a different way. This is especially true of Rafi sahab’s repeated lines and also Manna De’s. In Rafi sahab’s songs, invariably it can be taken for granted, that the repetition of lines will have variations.
4. The song is a like a relay race, and the one starting it is doing the winner’s lap, with the trophy.

Actually Manna De has a small part to sing but Usha Timothy is having very few lines to sing. Seeing the video was a surprise again. It is a competition sort of song with two artists performing on stage and singing is done by Agha in Rafi’s voice and Shashi Kala in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Rehman is seen standing next to Agha and enjoying his singing, so is a female standing next to Shashi Kala similarly amused by the song. The expressions of quite enjoyment on Rehman’s face can be described perfectly in one word, i. e. “Mehzooz”.

A comment on youtube said that this song based on raag zhinjhoti/maanjhkhamaj. Whether it is true or not, the song does sound unique and stand out as a song to be savoured.

These are the songs from the movie already posted in the blog :

Song Date of posting Remarks
Na baaz aayaa muqadaar mujhe mitaane se 24 June 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Naazuk hoon albeli hoon 2 August 2011 MD- S Mohinder
Maangne se jo maut mil jaati 5 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Ye ghar aapkaa hai chale aayiye jee 25 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Na to inkaar kiya na to iqraar kiya 29 October 2020 MD-Bulo C Rani

The song is like a gorgeous long meal, a smorgasbord. Mohammed Rafi sahab is singing different portions of this song, with relish. And we listeners are mesmerised. The bass of Manna Dey’s parts is in tune with Rafi sahab’s sometimes sweet, sometimes mischievous, nasheeli, some with smooth softness. We can’t actually eat this, but we consume it and our senses absorb the nuances of the song. I just wish the parts where Suman Kalyanpure and Usha Timothy are singing, could be softened a little. They bring a mesmerised person back to earth, but Rafi sahab is back again in the last part of the song, in tandem with Manna Dey and they both bring it to a level field so we are not too sorry the song has ended, and there is no more of it to be heard for the first time.

I actually looked far and wide, to find if there is still more left to be found of this song. Lyrics by Nyay Sharma are equally good and make the most of the tune of the song. But for the large parts of the song, the words were redundant I felt, it was the raag and the rhythm and soft vocal voice singing the words which became paramount. This is a rarity, as it happens only with classical raagaa’s. The only other time I can recall this happening with me, was when I heard Kumar Gandharv here .
Is this what is known as a sum total greater than its parts?

Blog Day :

4533 Post No. : 16100

So we are at it again. For the 161st time in the blog ! We arrive at post number 16100 in the blog with this writeup !

I have mentioned it in the past that we no longer look forward to these century posts with the same eagerness as in the past. This applies not only to blog centuries but also to the centuries of artists. At this moment, a good number of artists are into their ninetees. I propose to take them all up to their respective centuries after we are done with this blog century.

This post too takes up one such case. The artists in questions are Shankar Jaikishan. If some artists are in their 90s, then they are in their 990s- 999 to be precise. This post sees then break into the four figure mark. We have had singers (four) and lyricists (three) who are in fopur figures in the blog. Shankar Jaikishan join them today and become the first music directors to reach 1000 songs in the blog.

I was in quite a dimemma to pick a song for the occasion. All iconic Shankar Jaikishan songs from the golden era of HFM are altready covered. A few leftover songs of that era somehow did not fit the bill. I was looking for a special song- typically a rare song.

Finally I have zoeroed in on a song which qualifies to be called a rare song. It is not a song of 1940s or 1950s. Rather it is a song of recent vintage (by the shandards of this blog).

Moreover, this song is quite unusal in the sense that one would not guess it to be a Shankar Jaikishan song if he is not informed beforehand. One would guess it to be a song composed by Kalyanji Anandji, or R D Burman, or Bppi Lahiri, considering when this song was composed, but this song is a creation of Shankar Jaikishan, or more precisely Shankar (seeing that Jaikishan had already expired by then).

It is quite a surprise that this song did not get popular. I was very much into HFM listening those days, but even I never got to listen to this song even once ! That has to do with the fact that the movie did not do well at the box office. It was not really a surprise seeing that the movie did not star Amitabh Bachchan. The movie starred Jeetendra and Neetu Singh. Jeetendra, alongwith Sri Devi or Jaya Prada could draw crowds, but not Jeetendra and Neetu Singh, and the movie duuly flopped. The songs of this movie, including this song remained unheard by majority of music lovers.

This movie was “Chorni”(1981). I had heard about this movie but I did not consider this movie worthy of watching. So I saved my 3 Rs and 80 paise (ticket for a balcony seat) which I then spent on watching some other “worthy” movie. 🙂

“Chorni”(1981) was produced by V K Sood and directed by Jyoti Sawroop for Kesar Films, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Dr Shreeram Laagoo, Indrani Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni, Jalal Agha, Helen, Leela Mishra, Anita, Shashi Kiran, Sunil Dhawan, Sundar Taneja, Rajesh Valecha, Master Shaaka, Baby Suparna, L R Tiwari, Ramlal, Jugnu, Uma Khosla, Parveen Pal etc in it. Aruna Irani, Ajeet, Mohan Choti were also there in guest appearances.

The movie had Six songs in it.

This song, the second song from the movie to appear in the vlog, is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shailly Shailendra is the lyricist. Shankar (under the brandname Shankar Jaikishan) is the composer.

The song is picturised as a club dance song on Helen.

Those were those of disco songs. Music director was clearly under instructions to create a Disco song. The song sounds like a song meant for those days, but it is not a disco song. It is a western style song with western orchestration allright, but it is a proper song with proper lyrics, just how it used to be in Hindi movie songs in pre disco days.

Listening to this song is a scintillating experience. I have listened to this song quite a few times. The song grabs your mindshare on the very first listen. It is not like those songs that one needs to listen to a few times before it grows on you. It grows on you immediately, even before Asha Bhonsle sings hef initial lines.

The video is over four minutes long. The audio is even longer at over six months. The singing is superb, as one expects from Asha Bhonsle. The music is quite incredible to listen to, and the music is what one remembers long after the song is over. What a song. The song may be an unusaul composition from Shankar Jaikishan. The sonbg deserves to be presented in the blog as their 1000th song in the blog.

Here is this special forgotten gem. Let us savour this song and welcome Shankar Jaikishan to the exclusive club of HFM artists who have completed their 1000 sopngs in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. Our special thanks to those who haas repeatedly petitioned me. One thousandth song of Shankar Jaikishan was their long pending demand.

We are all happy that Shankar Jaikishan become the first music directors in the blog to reach four figures. In time, they could well become the first music directors whose entire set of 1200 odd HFM compositions may be showcased in the blog. we are just 200 odd songs away from that mark.

So let us celebrated blog’s 16100th post and Shankar Jaikishan’s 1000th song in the blog with this fantastic hidden gem of a song.

15 August 1975 saw the release of a movie that went on to become an all time surprise hit. No, I am not talking about “Sholay”(1975) which was released on that date. “Sholay”(1975) was a big budget multistarrer movie and it was expected to do well at the box office, at least by the makers of the movie, if not the trade pundits.

Another movie was released on 15 august 1975. It was a low key release in a few movie halls. This movie was expected to do a modest business and was expected to last just one or two weeks in movie halls before being replaced by other movies.

But surprisingly, this movie, which had no big stars, and which was a religious movie (that was considered infra dig by city bred movie goers) began to draw crowds that was comparable to the crowd thronging to watch “Sholay”(1975).

Seeing that this movie was made on a shoe strong budget, this movie turned out to be one of the most profitable movie ever for its makers. People would offer prayer in the movie hall and perform aarti. This goddess, which few people were aware of, suddenly found a pride of place among the pantheon of Gods.

This movie, a surprise all time super duper hit, was produced by Satram Rohara and directed by Vijay Sharma for Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay had Kanan Kaushal, Ashish Kumar, Anita Guha (playing the title role), Bharat Bhushan, Rajani Bala, Bela Bose, B. M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Manohar Desai, Dilip Dutta, Mahipal, Padmarani, Leela Mishra, Sushila Devi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. The movie makers had roped in C Arjun ( largely a music director of B grade movies) as the music director. Kavi Pradeep, a top lyricist of 1940s and 1950s, but more or less out of work by that time, was signed up as the lyricist. He was an inspired choice as the lyricist, seeing that penning religious songs and patriotic songs was his strong suit.

All the songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became hugely popular and they remain so. Kavi Pradeep, in addition to penning the lyrics, also sung two songs in the movie in his characteristic style and these songs became all time classics.

Today (11 December 2020) is the 22nd remembrance day of Kavi Pradeep(6 February 1915 – 11 December 1998). On this occasion, here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975). This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar who found herself in the role of leading female playback singer in the movie, which was rare for her, as she normally got one song in most movies, for some side actors.

This song happens to be the 200th song of Usha Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog. It is quite a befitting song to mark her double century in the blog.

This song, a prayer to Santoshi Maa, is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala (long long ago).

Blog Day :

4521 Post No. : 16080

Hullo Atuldom

I have been getting reminders and ‘pokes’ (a term from Facebook) in the form of personal messages from a few Atulites who are asking me why the sudden slump on my part. Now I know what Atulji goes through when all of us question him on “Blank days”. I also am feeling like the first-follower of the blog ‘Rajaji’ who took a few weeks to reach his 200th post with ghodi pe hoke sawaar.

This slump can be attributed to the festival season and having my Mom-in-law for company. I would like to copy-paste a thought that Rajaji has written in his 200th post (sorry for not taking your permission Rajaji)

“No excuses though – if Atul can write up and post songs every single day, I just cannot have an excuse for taking five weeks for one post. :-)”.

In spite of the mentioned reasons I managed to sneak in my post number 399 and that was only 10 days back.

December 3rd is one of those days in the calendar, followed by ASAD, which has two occasions to have special posts. To start of let me wish the “Raunaq-e-blog” a very happy birthday. This was a title bestowed on the recipient in a post three years ago on this date. May she have a healthy, peaceful, musical and joyful day. May her appearances on the blog and WA group be more regular. Wishing our Ben Katie a very happy birthday. On this day I present you a song of the forever PACHCHEES romantic hero of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and the better part of the 80s. May you be as Evergreen and Hyperactive as him.

I went through the filmography of the forever Pachchees Dev Anand and found a few songs of his first decade in the film industry yet to be posted here on the blog. I had almost made up my mind about the song too. One such song was from the movie “Ham Bhi Insaan Hain” (1948) of which the blog has only four from a possible nine songs. But the hurdle for me was the name of the music director “H P Das”. A name new to me; as also the names Amir Banu, Ramola Devi, German, Niharika, Pal, G. Das etc. I decided that this movie and its songs should be handled by the more knowledgeable stalwarts of ASAD. I decided that I shall tread on safe territory and have chosen a song from a movie of the 70s.

I have seen this movie ages ago on Doordarshan and recall that it had something to do with the construction of a bridge to connect India’s North East with the rest of the country. The favoured villain of those times- Pran- played a chieftain of that region who is against the bridge construction as this will lead to the betterment of the locals whom he has kept under his bondage. Sharmila Tagore played the local girl who is ready to take up arms at her Chief’s behest and goes on a mission to sabotage the bridge. Dev Anand played the engineer in-charge of the Bridge Project and also the reason for Sharmila Tagore’s change of opinion about the bridge, its construction, and her chief ‘Deng Do Rani’ (Pran). Johnny Walker, Lalita Pawar, Sujit Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Jayshree T., Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Iftikaar etc played supporting characters. The movie had music by S. D. Burman and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The movie’s title was picked up from Allama Iqbal’s patriotic song “Saare Jahaan se Achcha”. In fact “saare jahaan se achcha” features in the movie too in the voice of Sushma Shrestha and chorus.

Gori gori gaaon ki gori re was the first song to be posted. Mera naam yaao mere paas aao was next. Then came this song Naina soyi soyi raina jaage jaage by our in-house encyclopedia who has made some interesting observations about Lata singing with Uncommon Singers. There was another uniqueness about that song- it was possibly the only time when Lata, SD Burman and RD Burman featured together.
The last song to be posted has been Ho tushima ree tushima aa gaya toofaan by Sadanand Kamathji and it was a tribute to Burmanda on his anniversary.

There are three more songs left of which the film version of “Saare Jahaan se Achcha” is one.

Before we get on to the song I must thank Atulji for allowing us as contributors on his blog and posting my mail to him giving details of the song as my first post ever as lyrics- contributor. That prompted me to send a few more lyrics as farmaishes and then the writing bug bit me and the number of days between my posts have been steadily reducing. I know my contributions are not masterpieces but my own thoughts and feelings. How I wish I had the patience of Sadanandji to write well-researched posts. Or the knowledge of Arunkumarji whom I call Guruji or even the resources (read HFGK) of people like Sudhri, Avinashji etc. I must also mention the love of Nahmji’s love for poetry and poets and her posts have been enlightening.

Today’s song is filmed on Dev Anand and a bunch of kids something on the lines wallah kya nazaara hai mausam bada pyaara hai, galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani; hans tu hardam khushiyaan ya-gham etc. These were the songs that followed “Ye Gulsitaan Hamaara” but all were feel-good songs where Dev Anand is trying to cheer the crowd. It is in the voice of Kishore Kumar. It is nine years since Devsaab passed away and it feels like yesterday. Thinking of the fabulously stylish and charming actor who entertained us for decades.

Once again wishing our Ben Katie on her birthday. Let us have all the birthday songs on loop for her.

Blog Day :

4511 Post No. : 16060

Today (23 november 2020) is the 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (23 November 1930- 20 July 1972). I was aware of this fact yesterday itself, seeing that I had received several contributions for the occasion. Moreover, this date, which happens to be a monday, is also a day when I present my weekly series of Lata Mangeshkar songs sung in a particular calender year- a very research heavy project. So, my hands were full on sunday (22 november) preparing for all these articles to be published on 23 november 2020.

By late night on 22 november 2020, I had four articles ready, one for Lata Mangeshkar and three for Geeta Dutt, to be published on the morning of 23 november 2020. I had plans to post another article on Geeta Dutt (this one), as that article was going to be a special article on the occasion of Geeta Dutt’s birth anniversary.

I was not the only one who was busy on sunday. It turns out that our own Gajendra Khanna was also busy. A big Geeta Dutt fan and the administrator of Geeta Dutt site geetadutt.com, Gajendra Khanna had prepared a one hour long programme on the occasion and had left a link of the programme on our whatsapp group. I listened to this programme in the morning. As is his wont, Gajendra Khanna’s programme was extremely well researched and contained new, eye opening informations. It was through this programme that I realised that Geeta Dutt (nee Roy) had not made her debut in Hindi movies in 1946, but it was in 1945 in “Aadhaar”(1945). HFGK contains very sketchy information on this movie and mentions name of movie characters as singers. “Aadhaar” (1945) is her first Hindi movie as a playback singer. I notice that a song Aayi balloon waali aayi re in Geeta Dutt’s voice (alongwith S N Tripathi) is actually posted in the blog with correct attribution. That was thanks to information provide by geetadutt.com, ofcourse. HFGK mentions this song as sung by Shehzaadi. Shehzaadi could well be the name of the character who lip syncs this song in the movie.

This programme also contains some other interesting information about Geeta Dutt. For instance, she has sung over 90 songs in Gujarati. She has also sung in Bangla (her mother tongue), Marathi, Punjabi etc. What is very special is the fact that she sounds a natural in all these languages. For instance, Gajendra Khanna finds her Punjabi diction impeccable in her Punjabi language song that he played in his programme.

It is unfortunate that her married life turned out to be disastrous and such a god given singing talent like hers, that should have blossomed, instead got withered and finally got cut short prematurely, because of the after effects of her unhappy marriage with Guru Dutt.

Despite all the circumstances that impeded her after her marriage, Geeta Dutt has still left us with more than a thousand songs to savour. The blog has 899 songs so far and this article is being written to mark the 900th song of Geeta Dutt in the blog. I was wondering what song to showcase as her 900th song in the blog. Most of her well known songs, including iconic songs are already showcased in the blog. Many of the songs not yet covered either did not fit the bill, or their audio quality was not upto the mark, or the genre of the song did not suit the occasion.

I covered a song that I thought was a nice discovery. But a few hours later it was pointed out that the song was already covered in the past.

So it was back to the drawing board.

Now I have picked another special song. This song is from an obscure movie called “Putli”(1950). “Putli”(1950) was produced and directed by Wali Sahab for Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti ,Pran, Yaqoob, Husn Banu, Srinath, Majnu, Prem Dhawan, Ramesh Thakur, Sheela Naik etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. HFGK mentions singers only for three songs. The singers mentioned for these songs are Meena Kapoor for all three songs and a male voice in one of these three songs. There is no mention of singers for remaining eight songs.

What is special about this song is that HFGK is silent about the singers of this song. On listening to the song, it is clear that the song contains the voices of Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begam. So this song is a “new” discovery as a Geeta Dutt song as well as a Shamshad Begam song.

Uploader of the audio of the song mentions Harikrishn as the lyricist and Aziz Hindi as the music director. While the music director matches with the entry of HFGK, the lyricist does not as HFGK is silent about the lyricist. HFGK Wali Sahab and Abid Gulrej are mentioned as the two lyricists. I think that the uploader of this song has more information about this song as he may have taken this information from the record label.

With this song, Geeta Dutt now has exactly 900 songs in the blog as a playback singer. It is befitting that she should reach this mark on the occasion of her 90th birth anniversary today. What a delightful song to bring up this occasion.

As a great coincidence, this song is the 700th song for Shamshad Begam in the blog and she too completes her century with this song.

PS-Sadanand Kamath Jee has located the video of the song. He identifies the two female dancers as Sheela Naik (lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice) and Cuckkoo (lip syncing in Shamshad Begam’s voice).

Blog Day :

4500 Post No. : 16037

Welcome all to this post, which should have come yesterday. But as they say ‘it is better late than never’ and as we on the blog say ‘it is never too late (even if the post comes after a long gap (ranging from a week to a month) of a particular special day).
😊
In any case we will be having a song to enjoy, a look-back (or glance? 😊) on the yesteryears or a brief journey ‘down memory lane’ …

I will directly come to the point now and clear the suspense that yesterday 11th November’2020 was the eighty-fourth (born on 11.11.1936) birthday of the gorgeous, beautiful, (plus sober, decent?), cheerful, ever smiling and ‘chulbuli’ actress Mala Sinha.

On the blog we today belatedly wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I got to watch many of her movies from the ‘golden era’ or ‘black & white’ era and later many of her movies from the ‘colored’ era too. I am not going to list them all here because it will be a long list. I would only like to say that I do not remember any single movie of her ‘where I have not liked her performance’. I always like her screen presence and also her appearances in the songs or song sequences.

When I was looking for information about her initial career, I got to learn that she was an approved singer of ‘All India Radio’ but never got to playback singing in movies.
Ot of the twentythree Bangla movies she acted in, she was paired with Uttam Kumar in seven movies. Interested readers can visit for more interesting information on her on ‘wiki’ here.

On the occasion of her birthday I am going to present a song picturized on her from the movie ‘Rivaaj-1972’ which I came across recently. After listening to the song I totally fall in love with this song.

‘Rivaaj-1972’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Sona Films, Madras’. (This movie was dedicated to the memory of the great K. Asif)

It was presented by H. Prasann Chand Nahar. K.C. Bokadia was the producer of this movie.

It had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar (the sub title for Sanjeev Kumar mentions ‘President award winner), Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Jr Mehmood, Baby Gauri and Zeb Rehman.
They were supported by Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Pandri Bai, Mukri, Mrs. Shaukat Kaifi Azmi, Raj Kishore, Swaraj Kumar, Subrato and others.

The story of this movie was written by R. Venkatachalam. Its dialogues were written by Kaifi Azmi.
Editing of this movie was done by R. Bhaskaran.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.08.1972.

The movie had eights songs (including a multiple version song) written by Kaifi Azmi, Indeevar, Hasrat Jaipuri, Anjaan, S.H. Bihari and Neeraj. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers for this movie.

Here is the list of the eight songs of this movie and the songs already posted have been added with their link;

Song Lyricist Posted On
Main teri prem deewaani meera Neeraj Being covered in this post
Tujh mein hoon main mujh mein hai tu S.H. Bihari 09.07.2013
Pyaara pyaara sabse nyaara aanewaala hai koyi hamaara Indeevar
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (male version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (female version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Lagey koi lottery yaa jackpot lagey Anjaan 30.01.2015
Jalaa do jalaa do jaalaa do duniya ko jalaa do Kaifi Azmi 06.11.2020
Phoolon sa mahka huaa ye reshmi tan mera Anjaan

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Today’s song is picturized on Mala Sinha where she is lip-syncing in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Sanjeev Kumar and many others are also seen in the picturization of the song which happens in a temple (the famous Meera temple of Udaipur, as mentioned in the ‘wiki’ page of this movie ‘Rivaaj-1972).

The beautiful lyrics for today’s song are by Neeraj ji.

When I listened to the song for first time around a week or ten days back, I was totally taken up by this song and fall in love with it. It grows upon us if we listen to it again and again.
This beautiful composition of Shankar-Jaikishan is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and I must say what I mentioned for Mala Sinha that I have never came across a single Suman Kalyanpur song which I had not liked and enjoyed.

With the song Suman Kalyanpur has now four hundred song on the blog. Still a long to go to cover her remaining songs. It is still below half way mark if we consider the total 857 songs sung by her in Hindi movies. Today happens to be the 4500th day for the blog. Suman Kalyanpur completing her 400th song in the blog on the 4500th day for the blog sounds quite a befitting occasion.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song …
Ed note:-Moreover, this article is the 300th article for Avinash Scrapwala as a guest contributor in the blog.

We can see from the above that there has been at least one Thousandth song post every year from 2009 onwards. 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013 saw two such posts, which means that the blog added nearly 2000 songs in these years.

All these songs were very very special songs in one way or the other. Some songs were iconic songs, some extremely rare, while some were popular in their times but had been forgotten with passage of time.

Some of these posts combined other major blog landmarks. For instance song post number 3000, a popular song, was Lata Mangeshkar’s 1000th post in the blog. Song post number 4000 , a popular songwas Rafi’s 1000th. 6000th post, a non film song was Asha Bhonsle’s 1000th post in the blog.

The 5000th song post, recognised Bulo C Rani, the less known music director of this iconic qawwaali, who completed his century in the blog with this song.

In the earlier days of the blog, regulars would eagerly look forward to the thousandth post and would try to guess the song. In some cases, for instance the 5000th post, people successfully guessed the song because we were posting far too many Bulo C Rani compositions in the blog those days to take him to his hundredth song in the blog. 🙂

Who could forget the leadup to the ten thousandth song in the blog ! Regulars, on those pre whatsapp days were keeping in touch with each other on e mail, sharing messages like, one more song posted, three to go. What song it is going to be, etc. The excitement, the eager anticipation, and finally the song getting posted, and the comments on the song post- those were heady days for the blog. Those who were part of those exciting days still fondly remember those days.

One can notice that the thousandth posts have been coming relatively slowly ever since. Song post 11000 took 254 days, whereas the next thousandth posts took over 300 days each to materialise.

Song post 15000 was the slowest. It took 444 days.

What about song post 16000 ? This gets posted today. It has taken 555 days !

444, 555. Such honky tonk numbers inadvertently and unnoticeably creep into the affairs of the blog. Who can forget the concidences involved while posting the “1” songs- viz song post numbers 1, 11, 111, 1111 and 11111 ! Those who have forgotten about the amazing coincidences noticed are requested to go though this article.

Another thing noticeable about these writeups is that they are penned by pillars of the blog, such as Raja, Sudhir Jee etc. Some of these writeups have been joint efforts, involving upto three contributors. Sudhir Jee’s contribution extends beyond the article writing. He would also dig up the song for the occasion, often a rare not yet on internet gem and upload that specially for the occasion. For instance, the 10000th song post was a song of 1931 (the earlist year for HFM) and it was especially uploaded by him minutes before that post was published on 20 July 2014 !

Selection of the song has been a matter of much speculation among the regulars of the blog, as discussed above. While some of these songs have been correctly guessed by them, guessing them has become difficult of late. That is because the person writing the article (that is often me) is not sure what song to pick. I myself manage to land an appropriate song often at the last moment. For example, I accidentally discovered the song for song post number 13000 and posted it for that occasion. When I was myself not clear about the song, how were others going to guess the song ! That way I feel like legendary leg spinner B S Chandrashekhar. He himself did not know what ball he was going to deliver next, so how was it possible for the batsman to anticipate his next delivery ! 🙂

In our whatsapp group of regulars, some of them have been guessing the song that would be the 16000th song for the blog. One guess is that it would be a Lata Mangeshkar song, alongwith her career records. That did not happen.

I was actually toying with such an idea. But then I realised that the songs that I could use with such an idea did not seem suited for an occasion like the 16000th song for the blog.

Just when it seemed that I was unable to find a suitable song, I stumbled upon this song which is being presented today. This song was discovered by me almost like how I discovered the 13000th song post song.

This song is as rare as they can be, from a movie that can be as rare as they come. The movie is “Toofaani Teerandaaz”(1959). The movie, a “stunt” movie, is produced and directed by A R Zameendaar for Navshakti Films, Bombay. The movie had Shanta Kumari, Deep Kumar, Tuntun, Sheikh, Habeeb, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Ismail Azad, Sajjan, Goldstein, Daya Devi, Nazeer Kashmiri, Amir Ali, Sattar, Md Ali, Ghani, Azam, Haneef, Yunus, Nawab, Funtoosh, Baby Shahjahaan, Khan Habib, Khan Nusrat, Khan Atiq etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. The movie is yet to make its debut in the blog.

The songs are rare, but they have been made available online thanks to the generosity of some well known HFM music collectots and sharers.

The song under discussion is a qawwaali. It is sung by Ismail Azad qawwaal and Sudha Malhotra,accompanied by male and female chorus. In all great qawwaalis, it is the lyricist who makes the qawwaali great.Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist of this fantastic qawwaali. Music is composed by Iqbal.

Only the audio of thd song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Ismail Azad (singing for himself) and Shakila Bano Bhopali, with others in the standard qawwaali set up so common in Hindi movies those days.

The song is in the same league as many iconic qawwaalis of Hindi movies. It is just that this song failed to get popular and so remained under the radar. With time, the song was forgotten. Thanks to music collecter Shri Girdharilal Vishwakarma, and the uploader shri Aditya Pant, we can enjoy this fantastic fantastic qawwaali. Our thanks to them.

The song, a nearly seven minute feast, starts with a long harmonium piece, followed by an interesting war of words between the two genders. Quite a remarkable song that will grow on the listeners if they listen to it a few times. I know it because I got tolisten to it quite a few times while trying to get the lyrics right.

“Toofaani Teerandaaz”(1959) makes its debut in the blog with this song.

Another thousandth song post done ! I feel relieved and happy. It will be a while before I will have to worry about finding another suitable song for the occasion. 🙂

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. This set of thousand songs took 555 days to arrive at a rate of less that two songs per day, but what is important is that we are still on the move and we continue to add to an already rich collection of songs. I take this opportunity to thank one and all. I expect that we will continue to recive the same support, help, encouragement, contributions etc for one and all.

Male chorus
Female chorus

Lyrics

Shukr kar hamne tujhe chaand si soorat de di
naaz kaliyon ka hawaaon ki nazaakat de di
teri zulfon ko ghataaon ki bhi rangat de di
loot kar saare zamaane ki muhabbat de di
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

ham na hote to bahaaron mein na rangat hoti
chaand mein noor na kaliyon mein nazaakat hoti
pad gayi jaan zamaane mein hamaare dam se
pyaar tum kisko jataate jo na aurat hoti
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

tujhko magroor kiya
keh ke haseena hamne
teri khaatir kiya
manzoor ye jeena hamne
banke majnu kahin laila pe huye hain qurbaan
cheer laaye pahaadon ka bhi seena hamne
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

chaahe joban bhi
tera hukm na taala hamne
daali Mirza ke gale pyaar ki maala hamne
isko kehte hain muhabbat yahi hoti hai wafa
khud to girte bhi rahe
tujhko sambhaala hamne
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

le sahaara meri baahon ka zara ab to sambhal
do kadam raah e wafa mein tu mere saath to chal
teri ulfat ki nishaani nahin jag mein koi
mard ke pyaar ka wo dekh nishaan Tajmahal
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

pahle mumtaz ne ki jaan muhabbat mein nisaar
baad mein Tajmahal ka hai banaana bekaar
waqt ne phoonk diye kitne wafaaon ke charaag
beh gaye mauj mein kitni hi kumhaaran ke pyaar
aise hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

zahar aankhon ka har ek jaam mein daala tumne
zulf ke parde mein hai saanp ko paala tumne
hashr(?) tak yaad rahega tera ye zulmo sitam
banke hawwa hamen jannat se nikaala tumne
phir bhi hamse ye gil hai ke wafaadaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

taane sakhiyon ke sune
hamne hi Radha banke
pyaar mein ho gaye ruswa kahin Laila ban ke
Ram ka saath diya kisne museebat mein bata
kaun jungalon mein phira saath mein Seeta ban ke
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin

ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin
ham wafaadaar nahin
tu bhi to dildaar nahin

jaa tere husn ka ab koi talabgaar nahin
dil hai aurat ka koi pyaar ka baazaar nahin
ham nahin ?? ke ab naaz uthhaane waale
aur aa jaayenge dil hampe lutaane waale
ham na honge to ye kya shaan rahegi baaqi
jaan jaayegi magar aan rahegi baaqi
kaun hai aap ki soorat se jo bedaar nahin
qatl kar denge tumhe haath mein talwaar nahin
?? naazuk mein ye taaqat meri sarkaar nahin
?? se nipatna koi dushwaar nahin
phir bhi hamse ye gila hai ke wafaadaar nahin

ham wo baazaar nahin tu bhi to dildaar nahin…

“Aakhir Kyon”(1985) was produced and directed by J Omprakash. Now I realise why this movie title starts with the letter “A”. 🙂

The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Smita Patil, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Asrani, Sujit Kumar, Shubha Khote, Beena Bannerjee etc in it.

THe movie was a archtypical South Indian “social” movie. Peevesie’s mom, while discussing one earlier song from the movie had provided this summary of the story of the movie

That movie had a very topical theme of a wife (Smita Patil) being abandoned by her whimsical husband (Rakesh Roshan) for another girl (Tina Munim). The story goes on to show Smita becoming a TV anchor (she was one prior to coming into movies) and then graduating to a Novelist. Then it turns out that when her husband’s business falls in bad times he approaches her; requests her to write for him; so that he can get their daughter (whom had forcibly kept with himself at the time of separation) married decently. That is the gist of the movie. We also had a partly bald Rajesh Khanna playing a TV (DoorDarshan) cameraman who admires Smita for her rebounding power and is a support to her throughout.

This movie came at a time when DD was the only channel available and people used to have one TV in their drawing rooms. And whole families used to sit and watch whatever was dished out to them. Otherwise I cannot imagine an entire family sitting and watching this kind of a musical show on TV these days. Also those were the days when people used to quote Rani Jhansi in all their speeches. Also Indira Gandhi and Margaret Thatcher were sources of inspiration.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far, with the movie making its debut in the blog in 2008, the first year for the blog !
Here are the details of the song covered in the blog :-

Blog post number Song Date posted
422 Dushman na kare dost ne wo kaam kiya hai 21 December 2008
5603 Saat rang mein khel rahi hai 8 March 2012
9544 Komal hai kamzor nahin tu 8 March 2014
15696 Ek andhera laakh sitaare 2 July 2020

We can see from the table that second and third song from the movie were discussed on 8th march (2012 and 2014) on the occasion of Women’s day. It shows that the movie had some sort of “Women’s empowerment” message in the movie.

Today (17 october 2020) happens to be the birthday anniversary of Smita Patil (17 October 1955- 13 December 1986). On this occasion, here is the fifth and final song from “Aakhir Kyon”(1985) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song is picturised as a get together song where Smita Patil lip syncs this semi classocal song while others, including Tina Munim, Rakesh Roshan and others look on. Tina Munim also uses this opportunity to fantasise about Rakesh Roshan.

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

With this song, all the five songs of “Aakhir Kyon”(1985) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog. This movie took nearly 12 years (3753 days to be precise) to get YIPPEED.

This song is the 3600th song of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog.
