“Kaaghaz Ki Naao” (1975) was produced and directed by BR Ishara for BRI Arts, Bombay. The movie had Sarika and Raj Kiran (making their debuts as lead actors in grown up roles). The movie also had Pradeep Kumar, Aruna Irani, Helen, IS Johar, Paaro, Johnny Whisky, Dileep Dutt, Shyam Dubey, Amal Sen, Hamid, Asha Sharma, Rajni Verma, Hardeep, Maniyar, Arbind Dasgupta, Manhar Desai, Asit Sen, Manmohan Krishan, Reena Ghosh, Master Mitthoo etc. in it.

There were four songs in the movie. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the three songs already covered in the blog:-

Here is the fourth and final song from “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Aruna Irani and Pradeep Kumar.

With this song, “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

This song marks an “artificial”, but significant century for the blog. “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) becomes the 1100th movie that has been YIPPEED in the blog. To put things in perspective, 1100 movies constitutes some one fifth of all the movies that were released from 1931 till 1980. These 1100 movies had nearly 7100 songs in them, viz. 50 % of all the songs covered in the blog.

While some movies are easy to YIPPEE, if all their songs are all time classics and so readily available, majority of movies are such that at least one or two of their songs are rare and obscure. Searching for these songs can be a tall order. There are cases where the missing songs are not even available online. There are several instances where the missing songs of these movies had to be uploaded and made available online for the first time by us (read by Sudhir Ji).

One benefit of YIppying a movie is that we no longer have to search for songs of that movie. We can forget about these movies and concentrate of movies that are as yet unyippeed.

To take the example of the year 1959, 1959 saw as many as 114 movies getting released. 103 of these movies are represented in the blog. As many as 47 of these movies are already YIPPEED. This is the highest number of YIPPEED movies from one calender year. So in effect, now we only have to search for missing songs from 56 + 11 movies of 1959.

“Rajnigandha”(1974) was the first movie to be YIPPEED in the blog on 10 september 2008. We were not even aware of this fact on that date. 🙂 It was the only YIPPEED movie during 2008. 2009 saw another 8 movies getting YIPPEED. It is from 2012 that we consciously started thinking on YIPPYing movies. More that 10 movies each are being YIPPEED since 2012. As many as 202 movies were YIPPEED in 2013, which is the highest number of movies YIPPEED in a year.

This year 2018 has seen us YIPPYIng at least one movie every day. Till now we have YIPPEED 66 movies in 65 days of the year. We were on a similar new year resolution during the last year of 2017 as well. On that year we posted one YIPPEE every day till 5 may 2017, viz for 125 days, when that steak got broken on 6 may 2017. Let us see how long our unbroken streak of 2018 lasts. 🙂

The blog at present has songs from 3858 movies and we are adding one extra movie every day (which is another new year resolution with us). My guess is that all the songs may be available for around 2000 movies. It may not be possible for other movies to get YIPPEED because all songs of these movies are not available.

Time will show whether I am proved right or otherwise vis a vis final tally of YIPPEED movies in the blog. For now, let us celebrate having the 1100th YIPPEED movie in the blog.


Song-Na jaiyyo re sautan ghar sainyya (Kaaghaz ki Naao)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

na jaiyo re ae
sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re ae

jaadu bhi jaane wo tona bhi jaane
najariya se dil ko pirona bhi jaane
hans ke mile door hona bhi jaane
hans ke mile door hona bhi jaane
tu hi na maane
na maane ae ae
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
na jaiyo re ae sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re ae

tan se lubhaaye
adaaon se loote
pal mein vo maane to pal mein hi roothhe
bairan ke hote hain sab roop jhoothe
bairan ke hote hai sab roop jhoothe
tu hi na jaane na jaane ae ae
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
ruk ja main ro ro padoon tore painya
na jaiyo re sautan ghar sainya
na jaiyo re ae ae ae

This is the 2800th song of Rafi Sb to be showcased on our blog.
‘Mera Suhaag’ (1961) is the 3800th film represented on our blog.

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part I-Arun Raghavan
—————————-
During his HFM career, Rafi worked with 14 music directors in more than 100 songs each. I describe them as Major music directors for Rafi or three figure music directors with Rafi. Then there were 45 music directors who composed between 11 to 99 songs with Rafi. We can call them semi major or two figure music directors with Rafi.

Major (viz three figure) music directors created 2743 song with Rafi, which is 53 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. The semi major (viz two figure) music directors created 1528 Rafi songs, viz 30 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. So we can say that the major and semi major music directors (59 in number) contributed a whopping 83% of all Rafi songs, which adds up to 4271 songs in all.

Then there were 170 music directors who worked with Rafi in less than 10 songs each. They were like the proverbial squirrels of Ramayan fame, who would carry a few grams of tiny pebbles each on their tiny paws while the giant vaanars would carry large boulders on their shoulders. The individual contributions of each of these music directors may be small in comparison to the major music directors, but the cumulative total of Rafi songs by these single figure music directors adds up to a figure of 503 ! This total is bigger than the career total of HFM songs sung by some well known playback singers, viz K L Saigal, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood etc. And these songs contain quite a few wonderful songs as well.

I had discussed this fact while discussing a song on the occasion of Rafi’s birth anniversary. Raja, while commenting on that article had written –

“Just wondering if we have covered songs of all those 173 composers (1-9 songs category) here already? If not, that could be a project. Every composer who has used Rafisaab should be on the blog, even if the song being posted for that composer isn’t necessarily the Rafisaab one (if it is, of course better!).
That could be our way of showing our gratitude to that composer.”

I had taken note of Raja’s suggestion. And this writeup begins our series of articles about those music directors who were associated with Rafi in less than ten songs each. The name that I have chosen for this series is- pal do pal ka saath. This phrase is taken from that memorable qawwaali from “The Burning Train” (1981) containing this phrase.

In the beginning, I will discuss those music directors who have worked with Rafi in just one song each.

There are 48 such music directors. While most of them are small time less heard music directors, we have some rather well known names too in the list.

I decided to take up these names alphabetically. The first name that crop up in Alphabetical order is Aabid Hussain Khan who composed one Rafi-Zohrabai Ambalewaali duet in a 1949 movie called Last Message”(1949). While a few songs from this movie are available, the Rafi song , viz. “na thahar sake na tadap sake” does not seem to be available.

The next name that comes up alphabetically is Aparesh Lahiri (father of Bappi Lahiri). He has composed one Rafi song in a movie called “Subhash chandra” (1978). Since Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary is coming up next week, that would be the opportune time to cover this song.

The next name in the list of music directors is Arun Raghavan. He was a South Indian music director and he worked in just one Hindi movie. This movie, called “Mera Suhaag” (1961) was produced by Produced by N S R Mani and directed by H Krishnamoorthy for Secarts, Madras. The movie had Kanta Rao, Rajnala, Ramkrishna, K V S Sarma, A V subbarao, Balkrishna, Krisha Kumari, Girija, Rajshree, Hemlata etc. in it. In all likelihood, this movie was a remake of a south Indian movie where songs were re reccorded in Hindi. There were nine songs in the movie. Eight of these songs were sung by well known South Indian playback singers viz. P Susheela, S Janki and P B Srinivas.

But there was one song in the movie which was sung by Rafi. And that happens to be the one and only collaboration of Arun Raghavan as a music director with Rafi in a Hindi movie.

The song is penned by Vinod Sharma, who like the music director is an obscure name for this blog.

This song is a rare song. Only the audio of the song is available.

From the sounds of it, the song appears to be used as a background song in the movie.

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

So much discussion on a song which is a rare and obscure song. Most sites dealing with HFM will struggle to find anything to write on this song. But trust us in this blog to treat most songs in general and songs like this in particular with so much care and respect, and we are able to come up with so many special things to say about songs like this.

This song is special for us for the following reasons:

1. This is the only occasion when Rafi has sung a song under the music direction of Arun Raghavan and under the penmanship of Vinod Sharma.

2. This is the 2800th Rafi song in the blog. It was a conscious decision on our part to use a Rafi song from a less known music directors to emphasize that they too have contributed their mite in enriching HFM.

3. With this song, “Mera Suhaag”(1961) becomes the 3800th movie to get represented in the blog. The same reason as given above applies here as well for considering this movie for this honour.


Song-Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath (Mera Suhaag)(1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Vinod Sharma, MD-Arun Raghvan

Lyrics

Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh uske man ki baat
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath

dharmraj ne drupad suta ko diya juye mein haar
harichandra ki raani taara bik gayi beech baazaar
bik gayi beech baazaaaar
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh
uske man ki baat

Shakuntala ko raaja bhoola
jiska thha vishwaas kiya
chhoti si thhi baat
Raam ne
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya

tujhko bhi vanwaas mila hai
teri karun kahaani
kul maryaada raah mein teri
?? deewaani
tera dharm piya ko paana
?? tujhko mil jaaye
haan
?? tujhko mil jaaye
dukh ki kaali si raat kate
sukh ka sooraj muskaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye

The duration has been sliced to less than half, rather almost one third. That is, in comparison to the previous interregnum. Maybe not THE quickest but one of the quickest. Ah yes, I refer to the century milestone, the 122nd that we strike today. The reference to the duration is the time comparison between this one today, and the one that came just before it. We had hit the 12 thousand mark on 20th April. After that, it has been a real slow tread to come to the next one hundredth mark, which happened on 18th June. Counting the days, the number is 60. One of the tardiest to have occurred on this blog. But then we made it up, very sprightly and very quick – from 19th June to 10th July today. Counting the days, the number is 22. Wow, that is the bandwagon at its galloping best. The Raanchiwaala Gaanewaala is pulling out all the stops.

Congratulations to all the bandwagoneers – one more batch of a hundred songs is now added to the collection. And the musical journey continues, merrily onwards.

रांचीवाले का ईरानी ढाबा

– “क्यों जी, आज का स्पेशल क्या है”

– “एकदम फ्रेश फ्राइड चटपटा मसालेदार ग्यारह नौ सौ”

– “ये ग्यारह नौ सौ क्या डिश है भाई”

– “गाना है सर !! ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौवाँ। बस आज ही सर्व होगा”

– “भाई ऐसा क्यों, आज ही क्यों सर्व होगा”

– “अरे साहब, कल हम नया ताज़ा ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौ एक, और उस से भी आगे चलेंगे”

“लाऊं क्या, सर ?”

– “क्या”

– “गाना, ग्यारह हज़ार नौ सौ वां”

– “अच्छा, पेश करो, लेकिन ताज़ा होना चाहिए”

– “एकदम ताज़ा सर, एकदम नया, पहले इस ढाबे में कभी नहीं सर्व किया गया”

“अभी लाया”

🙂 🙂

Welcome all to our next century milestone, piling nine hundred on top of eleven thousand. And we are now just 100 short of the next thousandth milestone. And we hope to get there shortly now. This milestone has been quite slow to arrive. We have taken full forty days from the previous century, which occurred on 24th Jan.

We in this blog often come across milestones. The most common milestone is century of songs which occurs after every one hundred songs and so far we have had 101 such centuries.
