This article is the 17400th song post for the blog.

Blog Day :

5307 Post No. : 17400

That moment is here again with us. The moment when we reach a century of songs in the blog and post a special song to mark the occasion.

What is so special, one may ask. We already have 173 such occasions in the blog.

Indeed we had 173 such occasions and this is the 174th century for the blog.

Still, I find this century somewhat different vis a vis other centuries in general, and with other recent centuries in particular.

If we look at the rate at which we have been clocked our centuries, here is what we observe

Time taken for century Number of occasions Date of First occasion (century number) Date of final occasion (Century number) Remarks
upto twenty days (Fast centuries) 65 5 January 2009 (5th century) 31 January 2015 (108th century) Fastest century in 11 days- 46th century on 9 september 2011)
from 21 to 40 days (Medium Fast centuries) 68 25 November 2008 (3rd century) 21 September 2020 (160th century)
from 41 to 60 days (Slow centuries) 26 5 November 2008 (2nd century) 27 March 2022 (169th century)
from 61 to 80 days (Very Slow centuries) 14 17 September 2008 (1st century) 31 December 2022 (173rd century) Slowest century in 77 days- 170th century on 12 June 2022
Total 173

We can observe that the last time we had a fast century (in 20 days or less) was on 31 January 2015, viz 8 years ago ! Even our last medium fast century (scored between 21 to 40 days) was more than two years ago. In other words, the centuries that we are scoring continuously for more than two years are all slow centuries that are taking between 41 to 77 days.

This century, which is achieved in 28 days becomes the fastest century in the blog since 23 march 2018, when century number 142 was scored in 26 days.

In addition, we achieve 100 posts in a month in a long long time. The last time it was achieved was in March 2018 (113 posts). Hopefully, this century will be just the shift in momentum and the shot in the arm for this blog that was badly overdue.

One can notice that majority of posts in this latest century are guest posts. Bulk of guest posts are by one single overenthusiastic contributor Avinash Scrapwala who contribured a whopping 53 posts out of 100 ! One fellow contributor jokingly commented that he has set up a post writing factory. 😄

There are 22 other guest posts as well. That makes it 75 guest posts out of 100 ! My own contributions were mainly in the form of Blog Ten Year Challenge posts.

As many as 29 posts introduced new movies to the blog ! Five movies got YIPPEED during this century. 14 posts were Blog Ten Year Challenge posts. Lyrics for most of these songs were sent by Prakashchandra.

As we add songs, the background work needed to manage them has increased considerably. That is one major reason that has prevented me to post more of my articles. Articles where I discuss some topics of interest have also dried up. Hopefully I will be able to restore them soon.

In all this discussion, I was almost forgetting about the song. It is a song that I had discovered a while back and I had earmarked it for some special occasion. Then I forgot all about this song. When Prakashchandra sent this song as blog Ten Year Challenge then I got reacquinted with this song. I resisted the temptation to post this song as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge.

This song is a joie de vivre genre of song that is bound to cheer up the listeners. This song is not by well known artists. Rather, this song is acreation of unknown artists. The singer is totally unknown,. She recently made her debut in the blog when another song from this movie was taken up as part of Blog Ten Year Challenge.

The music director and lyricists are also less known. That is how rare this song and its details are.

This song is from “Bulbul”(1951). This obscure movie was directed by A Rashid for Hindustan Productions, Bombay. This movie had Majnu, Rukhsaana, Dilaawar, Sarla Devi, Jyotsna, Maqbool, Mannan, Sheikh etc in it.

“Bulbul”(1951) had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog so far. This fourth song from “Bulbul”(1951) is sung by Suman Purohit, a singer about whom I know nothing. For that matter even the lyricist A Rashid is an unknown name. Music is composed by K S Ragi who is relatively better known since we had had a few of his compositions already represented in the blog.

Here is this wonderful song from “Bulbul”(1951). Rare it may be, but it has the effect of cheering up the listener every time one listens to it. It is a forgotten gem created by forgotten artists.

This post is the ninth post of thed day. That is yet another record for the blog for quite some time. The last time nine songs were covered in one day was on 31 july 2020. It is only the 43rdday (out of 5307 days) that nine songs have been posted in the blog. The record for a day is 13, however.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This year has begun well for the blog. Let us hope that we sustain this momentum throuyghout the year.

I take this opportunity to thank all our contributors, visitors, well wishers and music lovers who keep supporting this blog in one way or the other and keep providing the fuel to drive this musical bandwagon.

Blog Day :

5307 Post No. : 17396

Today (28 January 2023) is the 16th remembrance day of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). He ruled the roost in HFM during 1950s and 1960s, and that too on his own terms. Imagine not using the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his songs and still managing to create great songs. Curiously, he found his playback singer of choice in Lata Mangeshkar’s family itself, in the form of her younger sinter Asha Bhonsle. There is no doubt that it was O P Nayyar who offered Asha Bhonsle the opportunity to become a playback singer second only to her illustrious elder sister.

This association of Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar lasted nearly two years before they had an acrimonious break up.

We as music lovers are more interested in music and less on the personal affairs of those creating them. As far as O P Nayyar is concerned, he worked in 73 movies (give or take a few). As many as 50 of his movies, including almost all of his movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED in the blog. The few unYIPPEED movies of those decades are unYIPPEED because the balance songs are unavailable.

So we have to movies in the later part of O P Nayyar’s career, if we want to discuss songs composed by him.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) is one of his less known movie. It was produced and directed by Kamran, a B grade movie maker (Father of Farah and Sajid Khan) for Rainbow Films, Bombay. The movie had Dev Mukherji, Nandita Bose (making debut), Jalal Agha, Rupesh Kumar, Anwar Ali, Nikita, Tiwari, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Anjum, Birbal, Maruti, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begum, Shefali, Raj Rani, Mehboob, Jayshree T etc in it.

The movie flopped and so the songs of this movie had no change to get popular because they were not heard by most music lovers.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog.

As a tribute of O P Nayyar, here is the second sonng from “Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P nayyar of course.

It is a sweet song to listen to. The song sounds like the songs she sang under O P Nayyar’s baton during those years.

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

This song is the 500th song of OP Nayyar in the blog as a music director. This is the final century of O P Nayyar seeing that O P Nayyar composed around 570 songs in all. That means we are within striking distance of covering all available O P Nayyar compositions in the blog.

We take this oppotunity to play our tribute to the legendary music director O P Nayyar.


Song-Chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle (Aisa Bhi Hota Hai)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

ek hansi iski hai saari duniya meri
ek muskaan sau saal ki zindagi
mujhko duniya mein ab aur kya chaahiye
mil gayi hai zamaane ki saari khushi
maine barson jo dekha thha sapna
aaj kismat se poora hua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

har ghadi har samay muskuraata hua
phool sa bachpana meri baahon mein ho
laal mera bada hoke jaaye jahaan
kaamyaabi sada iski raahon mein ho
door har dum rahe gham ke saye
ye hamesha hi meri dua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #
————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1951’ movie ‘Maalti Maadhav’ or ‘Malti Madhav’.

Here is the brief about this movie.

“Malti Madhav-1951’ was directed by M. Nilkanth for ‘Prasann Pictures’.

It was produced by Bhalerao-Shriniwas Joshi.

The cast of this movie included Durga Khote, Anand Marathe, Baby Shakuntala, Indu Pal, Pittu, Sushant, Vasant Shinde, Indu Kulkarni, Ganpat Rao, Gauri, Kelkar, Subodhini, Takalkar, Kumud Lele, Bargir, Suman, Raj Kishore, Sulochana and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.04.1951.

“Malti Madhav” is based on the famous ‘Sanskrit Play’ of the same name by the great poet Bhavbhuti.

Here is the brief about Bhavbhuti and the story of this movie as mentioned on ‘Wikipedia’ and quoted by our Respected Arunkumar ji in his post with a song from this movie presented on the blog on 15.09.2020.

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

This movie has nine songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960). Lyrics for all the songs have been written by Pt. Narendra Sharma.

Music for this movie has been composed by Sudhir Phadke.

Lata Mangeshkar, Malti Pande, Sudhir Phadke have given their voices to the songs in this movie. Though singer’s name for three songs has not been identified and mentioned in the list of songs in HFGK.

However as per the footnote given at the end for this movie in HFGK it is mentioned that as told by Sudhir Phadke, the voice of Lalita Phadke also appears in one of the songs of this movie.

So far, four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as per following details. (In order they were posted)

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Baandh preet phool dor Lata Mangeshkar 25.07.2011
02 Man mein mere angaarey hain Lata Mangeshkar 28.07.2011

04 Motiyon se maang bhare sundari suhaaye re Malti Pande 15.09.2020

We can see from the above table that this movie made its debut on the blog on 25.07.2011 and the second song also followed within three days on 28.07.2011. However, the third song from this movie took another seven years and it was posted on 08.08.2018. The fourth song appeared after a gap of two years thereafter.

Today we are going to listen to the fifth song from this movie more than two years after the fourth song was posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a ‘sweet’ song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar with beautiful verses by Pt. Narendra Sharma.

Music is composed Sudhir Phadke.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Editor’s note:-This song is the 100th song by Pt Narendra Sharma in the blog as a lyricist.

Let us listen to this beautiful song …

#the Decade of Fifties – 1941 – 1950 #

In the information provided in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) for this movie page lyricist’s name for one song is not mentioned. (And the singer’s name for only two songs has been provided on the movie page i.e. song no.1 &2. But for song number one the correct names are again mentioned in the ‘Corrigenda’.).
In the ‘addenda’ HFGK has mentioned the singers’ name for song no.4, 5, 8, 10, 6, 7 and 9 which I have provided in the below table.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s

Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

Let us now listen to today’s song…

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1973-7)
——————————————-——————————

Today’s song in this series is from the movie ‘Jeewan Sukh’.

I guess this was an obscure movie of its time and it must have been forgotten easily. I could not find any video of this movie on internet and I think that this also seems to be unavailable as of now on internet.

“Jeewan Sukh-1973” was directed by Debu Sen for ‘Suman Productions’.

It had Dheeraj, Monica (New discovery), Nargis Banu, Anand Chaini, Nazeer Hussain, Dhumal, Asit Sen, Darshan, Niliman Pal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Praveen Pal, Mushtaq, Shirli, Bihari, Jhumru, Prakash Thapa, Hardeep, Dhananjay, Sanjana, Jankidas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

This movie has four songs written by three lyricists. Naqsh Lyallpuri had written two songs, and Janisar Akhtar and Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ had written one song each.

Music of this movie was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Do nigaahen teri, do nigaahen meri Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
02 Meri paayal kahin na kuchh kah de Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle
03 Hans le gaa le, jee le mere pyaare Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ Manna Dey
04 Ab kisliye uthhayen ehsaan zindagi ke Janisar Akhtar Naseem Banu

Today this movie ‘Jeewan Sukh-1973’ makes its debut on the blog with a song sung by Manna Dey.
Lyrics are are Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’, who, I guess, will also be making a debut on the blog as Lyrics writer.

Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

As mentioned above only audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs and other information about this movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Editor’s note:-This song is the 600th song of Manna Dey in the blog as a playback singer.

This is the 17300th post on this blog.

Blog Day :

What is going on today? I am sure this question is worrying the minds of quite a few if not many or all regulars of this blog. Atul ji seems to be in a big hurry today. Seven posts already since his first good morning call at 5 am. Aha, so getting to the century number it seems. Yeah, ok, that’s it, he wants to complete the century, and make the century post today. But why? What is the tearing need? Is there a birthday not known to anybody? Is it a special day for someone on the bandwagon or in the industry? The anniversary page has no listing for today. ये क्या हो रहा है? क्या चल रहा है?

So yes, a mystery has been created by today’s blog activism. Already 7 songs on the board, and of course, the century strike is still to come. Well, here now. 😀

Ok so let me reveal the story in the background. This mystery scramble started less than 24 hours ago. About 5 days back, Atul ji and I exchanged some messages and decided that this century milestone will be an Asha Bhosle special. Some very interesting numbers are co-inciding. So we agreed to search and locate some special and rare song for this event. It took me about day to zero in on the song. I told Atul ji about it, and he agreed. So we planned to make the century post with this song.

So far, we were not in a scramble. Taking it easy, one or two posts a day, maybe get to the century milestone by 5th Jan or so. That suddenly changed last evening. Around 6.40, I got a message from Atul ji. He asked me whether we can make the century post tomorrow, i.e. today, 31st December. And he also shared the reason. As soon as I heard that, I was excited too. We agreed for the scramble, and the scramble happened.

Okay, okay – sorry for the long prelude. I will explain. First, the Asha Bhosle angle. We are coinciding two century milestones for her with this post. I wonder if the regulars have noticed that we have not be posting any Asha Bhosle songs for the past few days. Well, the reason is that Asha ji is at 2999th song on this blog, before this one. So this becomes her 3000th song being showcased here.

Ah, but wait, there is more. Asha ji is also at 1499th solo song with us. So this is now her 1500th solo on the blog. That makes today’s post a dual century milestone for her.

Before her, the two stalwart singers who have crossed these milestones are of course Lata ji and Rafi Sb.  Lata ji is currently at 3829 songs overall, and 2479 solos. Rafi sb is at the second place with 3222 songs overall and 1511 solos.

Now coming to the date, and the reason for the scramble. This is a piece of co-incidental information that Atul ji dug out yesterday. Most likely he was looking at the ten year challenge data for the BTYC 2022 series. So all it takes to guess this angle is to look at the songs posted ten years ago on 31st December 1912. The last song of that day, the New Year’s Eve of 2012, was the 7300th song on the blog. And so now, I am sure the numbers will fall in place in the minds.

Exactly ten years ago, were exactly ten thousand songs before this post. Ten years – ten thousand songs, that is a very telling achievement. Just for comparison, let’s see what came before that. From 19th July, 2008 to 31st December 2012, it is a few days less than 4 and a half years. In that period, we clocked 7300 posts. OK, so the comparison is nowhere balanced. The first 4.5 years come at an average of 1622 songs per year. And the next ten years come at an average if 1000 songs per year. That is quite a difference, which portrays the drop in the pace of posting over the years.

But in my mind, there is another very crucial observation to be made. Just in the fact of sustenance. In the known world of online blogging and entertainment and music, our blog most likely stands out as being the most consistent, the most sustained and the most continuing presence online – among the blogs that are run and managed by an individual or a small group. Yes there are other blogs that continue to thrive and continue to be regular, but they are mostly with corporate or external support and sponsorship. I am sure we all are aware of many blogs related to Indian Cinema and Hindi film songs, that we have visited over the years, but then with time, majority of them have lost steam, or slowed down. There is definitely a fatigue factor associated with this activity too. Sustaining the effort to continue is a big factor. And then, to ensure this sustenance on a day to day basis – I am confident to claim that our blog is without a peer across the wide internet.

So that is the story behind the eight posts that have been pulled together at a scramble within less than 24 hours.

Another coincidence I would like to mention here. Asha ji also figures in the 7300th post ten years ago. The song in that post is “Mohabbat Ka Haath Jawaani Ka Palla” from the 1958 film ‘Howrah Bridge’. The song is a duet by Rafi Sb and Asha ji. As noted in that post, that was the 300th duet song of this pair. Before this we were not noting and announcing century milestones for duet songs. It started with the post 7300.

And so, Asha ji then a centurion, and today too, Asha ji is a centurion.

Coming to the song in this post today. When Atul ji had sent me a query about some very special song of Asha ji for this milestone post, my mind went to this song, and for some very good reasons.

The song itself is very obscure and a rare discovery. As are many of the creations of the music director Sajjad Husain. Yes, the music for today’s song is from the mind of this genius music director, who was not given his due by the industry. The reasons can be discussed and debated, but the quality and the composition of his music cannot be. Par excellence is what comes to mind when we talk of this maverick music director.

The film is ‘Mera Shikar’ from 1973. After his 1963 venture with ‘Rustom Sohrab’, he was lost in the mists of forgotten anonymity for all of ten years. Then we see his name in this obscure and less heard of film that comes in 1973. An then it also disappears without a splash. Other than the fact that it is recorded in the Censor Board registers, and on account of that, it also appears in the Geet Kosh, no one had heard of or mentioned this film for many decades. With the coming of the internet, as access to many obscure things became easier, the aficionados started searching for lost and obscure songs of lesser heard music directors and singers and lyricists.

The difficulty with this film is that a. no gramophone records at all were made and b. the film itself is not available.

The songs of this film were presumed lost for a long time. And then they were discovered. On a spool tape. So now at least the songs are available, albeit it has been a difficult and anonymous journey.

A total of three songs are listed and identified for this film. One of the songs, in the voice of Rafi Sb, is already showcased on our blog – “Teri Mehfil Mein Aaye Hain”. This song was posted more than eleven years ago on 17th June, 2011.  The other two songs have not become available online, although they have been with private collectors for some time now. I first got these songs from my dear friend Girdhari Lal ji of Jodhpur. Then later, these songs also came to me once again thru another dear friend, Zafar Shah of Delhi. When the discussion for this post started, and my mind came to this song, I checked with Zafar Bhai, and he indicated that this song is already uploaded by him on his YouTube channel about six months ago. And so we have this song now available, to be played today as the 3000th song and 1500th solo song of Asha ji.

A vintage Sajjad creation, this song has such an endearing and yet intriguing melody. The verse lines are short and Sajjad Sb has knitted them into his music very beautifully. When we agreed to do this song for this post, I have since then heard this song repeatedly tens of times. And I am not getting tired of listening to it again and again. The rhythm and the arrangements are simply enchanting.

And then of course, the rendition by Asha ji. All I can say is – just listen to the song. And I think you will be bowled over, as I am.

The lyricist – Shakeel Nomani (or Numani) is once again a lesser known personality in the film world. He was a writer and wrote in newspapers and magazines in Urdu, Hindi and English. His name appears as the songwriter in a few films in 1950s and 60s. He wrote all the songs for four films – ‘Panchaayat’ (1958), ‘State Express’ (1961), ‘Daku Maan Singh’ (1971) and ‘Mera Shikar’ (1973). In addition he has written songs in ones and twos for the following films – ‘Sair e Paristan’(1958), ‘Lady Robinhood’ (1959), ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’ (1960), ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960), ‘Flight To Assam’ (1961), ‘Reporter Raju’ (1962), and ‘Magic Carpet’ (1964). Besides writing songs, he has also appeared as an actor in about 20 films. Our blog carries 16 songs already of this lesser known writer.

Shifting gears again – it is the closing hours of the year 2022. Tomorrow will be a new day and the beginning of a New Year. For some time now, I have wondered occasionally, what does a New Year mean. As the day dawns and the sun rises, it will be a day no different than today, or any other day that we have lived through. And when we talk of New Year, there are so many occasions during the 12 months that New Year is celebrated by different societies, different groups of people on different dates. Any way, apologies, I will not continue with my tangential musings.

It is a block time of 12 months that get a new number tomorrow. Different thoughts and different people will associate different expectations and measures and resolutions and plans with this next block of 12 months. And so, wishing all good luck and happiness with all their expectations and plans in the coming year. Also wishing good health to everybody, and a contented peace of mind to go along with it.

Let’s bring on 2023.

Listen to the mesmerizing sounds of the mandolin play, as only one master of mandolin could play. That is Sajjad Husain. Listen to lilting rendition by Asha ji, as she tells about expectations and desires that rise in the mind when one is in love with another. . .

teri chaahat mein jeeyen
teri hasrat mein maren
hai ye armaan. . .

Listen to this wonderful creation – and wonder sometimes, why was this master musician always relegated to the sidelines.

Amen.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (missing movies of 1975- Lyricist Ravindra Jain)
————————————

Welcome all to this post which marks my 6th hundredth post on the blog. This year ‘2022’ has been a very good year for me especially in terms of my contributions for the blog. This year I celebrated milestone of ‘five hundredth post’ in the month of ‘April 2022’ and today I reach six hundred posts on the blog. (there is much more to my statistics for the year ‘2020’, ‘2021’ & ‘2022’ , but that is the matter of another post which I would take at appropriate time 🙂 in the future.).

I once again express my gratitude for Atul ji for giving me this opportunity to be associated with this blog. I am also grateful to Sudhir ji and all senior members on the blog for their blessings and always supporting me and appreciating my efforts.

In my earlier post I had mentioned that these days I was looking for songs written by Ravindra Jain.
Ravindra Jain who started his journey into Hindi Film Music in the decade of ‘seventies’ bring with him a ‘freshness’ in the Hindi Film Music with his touch of ‘folk based’ music and some simple poetry in his lyrics.

We are all aware of how Ravindra Jain who was ‘blind’ since his birth went on to become a successful composer in Hindi Film Industry and produced some of the immortal songs for Hindi Film Music. He not only achieved ‘multifaceted’ success in the Film Industry but also composed for TV Serials and wrote songs too.

For today’s occasion I will not go into the details of his biography. Instead, I will present here his filmography since his debut in Hindi movies as a music composer in 1972- to till the end of that decade i.e., 1971-1980.

I have earlier compiled and presented the filmography of Sahir Ludhianvi and Khayyam Saab on the blog. I wish to present to compile and present the filmography of Kavi Pradeep, Pt. Narendra Sharma on the blog in the future.

For this post I have tried and compiled the filmography of Ravindra Jain as a ‘lyricist’ till the year of 1980. For the years 1980s and onwards I have added those movies which have already been represented on the blog till now (and not all the movies of him from 1980 onwards. That I have left for another post in the future).

Let us now have a look over the filmography of Ravindra Jain as mentioned above.

Ravindra Jain as a lyricist has already reached over one hundred songs on the blog.
But still, there are many of his movies from this decade 1971-1980 which have not been presented on the blog. I will also try to bring them on here in the future.

Today I am introducing one such movie from this decade.

Today’s song is from the ‘1975’ movie ‘Salaakhen’.

In my previous post I had mentioned that Ravindra Jain’s compositions from the movies ‘Geet Gaata Chal-1975’, ‘Chitchor-1976’, ‘Fakira-1976’, and etc? ( 🙂 ) did feature in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of the year ‘1976’ …

This ‘etc?’ is the song of today’s which ranked at 29th in the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1976’. This song was composed as well as written by Ravindra Jain.

A sweet-melodious song to listen to …

I would also like to repeat the same about this movie ‘Salaakhen-1975’ that I do not remember to have read about this movie or any discussion about this movie among our friend circle then. And I think this movie was also a non-successful and a forgotten movie of its time.

“Salaakhen-1975” was directed by A. Salaam for ‘Eagle Films, Bombay’.

It was produced by Parvesh Mehra.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Sulakshana Pandit, Ramesh Deo, Amrish Puri, Sudhir, Sajjan, Tarun Ghosh, Anjana, Brahm Bharadwaj, M. Rajan, Mac Mohan, Birbal, Master Ratan, Master Chikoo, Jairaj, V. Gopal, Keshto Mukherjee and others.

Mehmood had a guest appearance in this movie.

Shammi Kapoor has a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by ‘Eagle Films’ Story department. Screenplay of this movie was written by S.P. Baxi and dialogues were written by A. Salaam (who also the director of this movie).
Editing of this movie was done by S.M. Asgar. Pran Mehra was the Chief Editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.12.1975.

This movie has six songs penned by three lyricists viz. Dev Kohli, Ravindra Jain and Hasrat Jaipuri as per details given below.

Sr.No Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Chal chal kahin akele mein Dev Kohli Sulakshana Pandit, Hemlata, chorus
02 Barkha ka mausam jee ko jalaa ke chalaa jaaye Ravindra Jain Asha Bhonsle
03 Mere dekh ke lambe baal Hasrat Jaipuri Asha Bhonsle
04 Seema seema seema sehne ki bhi hai koi seema Ravindra Jain Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
05 Maze udaa lo jawaani rahe na rahe Hasrat Jaipuri Asha Bhonsle
06 Chal chal kahin akele mein Dev Kohli Sulakshana Pandit

Music for this film was composed by Ravindra Jain.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip-synced by Shashi Kapoor and the beautiful Sulakshana Pandit.

(Also seen in the picturisation is one actor playing a police whom I am unable to identify now).

As mentioned above, with the today’s song this movie ‘Salaakhen-1975’ makes its debut on the blog today and joints the ‘same title movie ‘Salaakhen-1998’ on the blog. 🙂

Let us now enjoy this song which certainly would take back many to those wonderful era of ‘seventies’ and bring back memories of those years …

Song-Seema Seema Seema sehne ki bhi hai koi seema(Salaakhen)(1975) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

seema seema seema
sehne ki bhi hai koi seema
seema pe sipaahi baithha hai
zaraa bol dheema dheema aa

seema seema seema
sehne ki bhi hai koi seema
seema pe sipaahi baithha hai
zaraa bol dheema dheema aa

seema seema seema aa

kuchh log yahaan par lete hain
kaanon ka nazar se kaam
o o o o o
ho o o o o
kuchh log yahaan par lete hain
kaanon ka nazar se kaam
naadaan tu deewaanon ki tarah
kyun leta hai mera naa aam

seema o seema o seema
dheeraj ki bhi hai koi seema
behtar hai ke ham tum karwaa len
ab chal kar apnaa beema

hey seema seema seema

tum sar se lekar paaon talak
lagti ho mujassim raat
tum sar se lekar paaon talak
lagti ho mujassim raat
anjaam pe bhi zaraa rakhnaa nazar
phir karnaa koi aaghaaz

seema seema seema
chup rehne ke hai koi seema aa
koi bhed agar khul jaaye kahin to
ban jaayegaa keema
seema seema seema

pathhar ke sanam
ab kuchh to kaho
yoon hi ho naa jaaye shaam

ho ho ho ho o
aa aa aa haa aa
pathhar ke sanam
ab kuchh to kaho
yoon hi ho naa jaaye shaam

seema se zaraa tum aage badhho
to dil ko miley aaraam
seema seema seema
le tod di maine seema aa

raho saath magar
aisaa na karo jo mushqil ho jaaye jeena
hey
seema seema seema
sehne ki bhi hai koi seema
seema pe sipaahi baithha hai
zaraa bol dheema dheema aa
zaraa bol dheema dheema aa
zaraa bol dheema dheema aa

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Bikhhre Moti-1971)
—————————————

Theme songs and or background songs is the common feature in Hindi films. I think it was more common especially in the Hindi movies from the seventies. Such songs also help to push the narrative of the story. They also help to show the growth and transformation of the characters through different phases of life in the movie.

I had always liked such songs very much as most of the time their lyrics are quite philosophical and motivational in general.

I am planning to present such songs yet to be presented here in the coming future. Today’s song is one such song from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Bikhre Moti’. I was under the impression that this movie has already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. May be I was confused with the other movies having ‘Moti’ in their titles.

“Bikhre Moti-1971” was directed by Chanakya for ‘Gita Shree Films’.

It was produced by Omee Arora.

It had Jeetendra, Babita, Sujit Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tarun Bose, Asit Sen, Shabnam, Irshad Panjtan, Murad, Uma Dutt, C.S. Dubey, Chand, Yusuf, Prem, Roma, Baby Shobha, Baby Nasarat, Master Ratan, Master Manoj, with Helen and Kamini Kaushal.

Story of this movie was written by C. Kugunathan. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwamitra Adil.
Editing of this film was done by Ramrao.

This movie had five songs in it (including today’s song which is played in parts in the movie).
Lyrics for all the songs of this movie were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this film was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the brief about this movie, which I have taken as it is from the movie link available on ‘YouTube’.

Sulochana (Kamini Kaushal) is a young mother who accepts forced widow-hood and has to leave her home with her two sons. She gets involved in an accident while saving the life of a millionaire’s only daughter Leela and ends up losing her two sons.
The millionaire, by his will, names Sulochana as the guardian of Leela before his death. Fate ordains her sons Anand (Jeetendra) and Gopi (Sujit Kumar) to grow up in totally different environments. Anand gets rescued by Inspector Ram Prakash (Nazir Hussain) and grows up to be a police officer while Gopi grows to be a notorious criminal.
Unaware of their relationship, Gopi and Anand become arch enemies, when they both fall in love with Leela (Babita). Gopi sets out to end Anand and takes the help of Jeevan (Tarun Bose) a murderer released from jail. (Unquote)
Jeevan is the person who is none other than the father of the two siblings Anand and Gopi?
So, what happens next? , That is something to watch in the movie.

The above brief will also give readers a background about the today’s ‘background’ 🙂 song.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor who has sung many such background songs and they suited him too.

Video of this song is not available. And the audio available does not have the third stanza of this song. Also the first three lines before the ‘mukhda’ of this song are not available on the audios that I have been able to come across so far.

If one carefully goes through the lyrics of these first three lines of the song and the lyrics of the third stanza of this song one can easily guess that what is ‘lost at the start of the movie’, ‘all comes back’ at the end of the movie.

Also, from the song it is clear that the ‘central character’ in this song is ‘Sulochana’ ‘the mother’ played by Kamini Kaushal.

(The first part of this song is played immediately at the beginning of the movie after the ‘production logo’ (at 00:51 to 03:48). The titles are rolled as the first stanza is played in the background and end with it there. This is when Sulochana is devastated as her husband deserts her with the two children.

The second time this song is played in the movie at 14:21 to 16:31 where the first stanza is played again and this time the second stanza is played in addition to the first one. This part happens when Sulochana has already been separated from her two sons and she is at the millionaire’s home and wants to leave them. However the daughter of the millionaire, the doctor and other members in that family requests her to help and take care of the little girl who by now thinks Sulochana as her mother.

The third stanza of this song is played at the ‘happy end (:) ) of this movie at 02:14:07 to 2:15:19 where the movie ends. The separated family finally gets united in the end of the movie and this third part of the song is played then.)

‘Bikhre Moti-1971’ has five songs in it as per list given below.

SNo. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jalti rahe teri mamta ki jyoti Mahendra Kapoor Being presented today
02 Main bhi sochoon door khada ae kaun hai Asha Bhonsle
03 Ye jo ladki hai Mohd Rafi, Lata 03.09.2014
04 O zaraa dekh chalna haay haay haay Mohd Rafi
05 Ek nazar chaahoon main halki halki Asha Bhonsle

As we can see from the above table only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog so far.

Today’s song sung by Mahendra Kapoor is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

With this song, Mahendra Kapoor now has 400 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

Song-Jalti rahe meri mamta ki jyoti (Bikhre Moti)(1971) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

toota haar
chhoot gaya teekaa

reh gaye nain a rote
vidhwaa ho gayi
ye suhaagan
apne piyaa ke hote

jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

raam ki leela
kaun bataaye
dekh jo kismat
tujhko dikhaaye ae
is mele ki reet yahi hai
milta jaaye ae
bichhadtaa jaaye
honi ki palak roti hai
teri aankh nahin roti
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

sooraj dooba
chaand bujhaa re
jaane kidhar gaye
toot ke tare ae ae
ab to rain basar karni hai
bas ye soch ke
chup ho jaa re
tera pyaar na sone paaye
taqdeer rahe soti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

muskaa le tu
ankhiyaan bhar ke ae
rut aayegi aur nikhar ae ae
waapas aaya
haar galey ka
kahaan jaayenge moti bikhar ke
o bhar le maang
lagaa le tikaa
teri aur badhhe jyoti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

This song post covers the 1300th song of Kishore Kumar in the blog as a singer.

Blog Day :

5234 Post No. : 17228 Movie Count :

Today 16th November 2022 is the one hundred and fifth birth anniversary of Chitragupt Shrivastava (born on 16.11.1917 and passed away on 14.01.1991). He is better known by his name Chitragupt.

Music director Chitragupt had a long journey in Hindi Film Music since 1946 to 1988 (as per information available). However some sources mentions ‘Chandaal-1998’ as his last film where he is credited with one song. This needs to be checked and authenticated. The titles of this movie don’t mention his name as a music director. (His sons Anand-Milind composed music for this movie.).

In his long career music director Chitragupt has composed many memorable and unforgettable songs and they will always be cherished by music lovers. His name will remain in the annals of Hindi Films Music. He was also the pioneer of the music for ‘Bhojpuri films’ ever since the first ‘Bhojpuri’ film was produced. He has composed timeless melodies in many ‘Bhojpuri’ films. He has collaborated with many mainstream singers from Hindi film music in Bhojpuri films too. And we already have some of these songs posted on the blog. Some of them, from the movies in the ‘eighties’ are yet to be presented on the blog. Today we pay our tributes to Chitragupt ji and remember this talented yet ‘underrated’ music director on this blog on his birth anniversary.

Today we are going to enjoy a song from a ‘Bhojpuri’ movie of ‘1986’.

In Hindi film music, music director Chitragupt has collaborated with singer Kishore Kumar and their collaboration have given us some very very special everlasting songs. Many of them are my favorites. I wish many more should have been there from this un-usual ‘combination’.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and this song will mark the 13th century of Kishore Kumar songs on the blog. We still have many Kishore Kumar songs to be covered on the blog. I hope we will be able to see all of them on the blog in our life-time.

Much has already been written about Kishore Kumar – the person and Kishore Kumar – the singer, so I am not going to repeat same here again. But, yes, I have something to write on my journey with Kishore Kumar songs at different stages of my life which I am leaving for another post which I would like to present later on the blog.

Similarly, I am not going into the many other details about Chitragupt ji here today in this article. His music has a ‘special place’ in my heart and I would certainly like to put my thoughts in an article here surely in the future.

So what special for today?

Today’s special is this composition by Chitragupt ji which all of us are going to enjoy. And we are going to enjoy the singing of none other than Kishore Kumar of this song.
(I am not aware if this is going to be the first Kishore Kumar song in Bhojpuri on the blog).
Today’s song is from the movie ‘Ganga Ke Teere Teere-1986’.

It was directed by Rajpati for ‘Shri Jagannath ji Pictures. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.04.1986.

“Ganga Ke Teere Teere” was produced by Hari Kishan Madhavdas Masand and Kishan Uttamchand Lalwani.

It had Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Madhu Malini, Ram Singh, Girja Mitra, Satyen Kappu and Bharat Kapoor.

They were supported by Yunus Parvez, Chand Usmani, Dulari, Shubha Khote, Vandana Shastri, Rajrani, Jai Pahalwan, Ratna, Master Mani, Mishra, Pande, Master Vinit Jha, and Shabana (Banarasi).

Dilip Sinha, Shekhar Purohit, T.P. Ojha, Brajesh Tiwari and Jayshree T made guest appearance in this movie.
Story of this movie was written by Rajpati. Editing of this movie was done by S.R. Sawant.

Rajpati also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Music of this movie was composed by Chitragupt.

Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, and Udit Narayan had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is lip synced on screen by Ram Singh (I guess). Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Madhu Malini and many others.

This song is has a village set up where people seem to be gathered for some village fair (?).

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy this entertaining song …

With today’s song this movie ‘Ganga Ke Teere Teere-1986’ makes its debut on the blog .

This article is the 17200th blog post for the blog.

Blog Day :

5212 Post No. : 17200

Slowly and steadily, and also unnoticeably, we arrive at yet another century milstone for the blog. This article is the 172th century post, or in other words post number 17200.

The previous century was achieved on 14 august 2022 (Blog day number 5140). This century is being achieved on 25th october 2022( Blog day number 5212). In other words, this century has arrived in 72 days, at a glacial pace of 1.4 songs daily.

This is the second century milestone for the blog after I retired from service in June 2022. If I thought that I would be able to devote more time to the blog post retirement, that does not seem to have happened.

There are some reasons that may have prevented me from going at a better rate. One reason is that the sheer volume of content in the blog that we have accumulated requires lots and lots of background work. I am still devoting considerable time to the blog but that is happening in ackground work, and is not getting reflected in the number of posts.

Readers who are following Blog Ten Year Challenge series will notice that we used to post as many as eight songs a day ten years ago. That was the situation when I was a full fledged employee holding a key post. Still I was able to be highly productive as far as the blog was concerned.

I used to wake up before 5 AM those days and would start working on the blog right away. Today also I wake up at the same time, but I am unable to do any blog work right away. My morning is devoted to walking my two dogs one by one between 5 AM and six AM. I did not have to do this ten years ago. My dogs those days freely roamed around on their own and came back on their own. This state of affairs continued till I retired. It is only now I am realising how much time my dogs were saving me during my working days, because I did not have to walk them daily. They did their walking, running and other excecises on their own.

Right now my residence is seeing some construction work, so for the time being I am unable to open my laptop right away because it means waking my wife up. Once the construction work is over, I will be able to keep the computer in some other room and that would allow me valuable early morning hours before my wife even wakes up. That is what I used to do doing my working days, when my computers were located in a room far away from the prying eyes of my wife. 😉 Moreover, even my wife was with me only for a few days in a year as she was herself working in a far off place.

Most articles that get covered in the blog these days are guest posts. Others are mostly Blog Ten Year Challenge posts. The idea now a days is that there should be at least one post daily and taht there should not be a DOT day in the blog. The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (Blog day number 4177). So we now have seen at least one post daily continously for 1035 days. Hopefully this will continue for long. There were days when I was unable to post, like for instance during the last few days of my service. Sudhir Jee has kept the blog flag high on those days by posting at least one article daily.

Personally I have not been able to really “blog” where blog means expressing my views in detail on various topics. There are lots and lots of topics where I would like to express myself in detail. In the past I have written in detail about several topics. Hopefully I will be able to achieve the same form soon enough.

While looking for a century post song, I came across this rare song from a rare movie which is a composition of artists that are hardly known to most music lovers.

The movie is “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959). “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959) was produced by S J Rajdev and directed by S Pal for Rajni Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Nazi, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Burhan, Jillani, Tuntun, Nimmo, Shashimala, Majnu, Malik, Balwant Sharma, Khursheed, Razak, Govind, Khanna, Parshuram, Gawli, Sandow etc in it.

There were six obscure songs in this obscure movies. One song from “Zimbo Ki Beti”(1959) has been covered so far.

Here is the second song from the movie. It is sung by Minu Purushottam and Khursheed Baawra. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Prem.

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

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose encouragement, support and contributions in one way or the other has kept this musical bandwagon rolling on and on for more than 14 years, which is a lot for an online collaboration of music lovers. Hopefully we will see this blog keep adding many more songs and centuries to its tally in the days, months and years to come.
