Blog Day :

4280 Post No. : 15521

In my last article, I had discussed playback singer and actor Shyam Kumar, who has acted in many Hindi films but remained unidentified for most of the Hindi film audience. In this write-up, I am presenting one more such actor who has made us to notice him in many films but remained unsung because he did very small roles in most of the films in which he got opportunity to act – mostly as a sidekick, a henchman, a doctor, barman, hotel manager etc.  Though his roles in most of the films have been very brief say, not be more than 5 minutes duration but whatever he did as an actor in varied roles, it was noticeable to the filmy audience. The actor is Keshav Rana whose face in the films may be familiar to many cine audience but may not be known by his name to them.

I had seen Keshav Rana in some of the films in the late 60s and early 70s during which I was active in watching films almost every week-end but I was not aware of his name.  His acting as a police inspector in ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) in a comical situation has still remained in my memory.  I did not know his name until I started collecting the pictures of personalities connected with Hindi films during the last 5-6 years. It was a co-incidence that his image propped up when I was searching for something else. And the image of Keshav Rana emerged as a scene from a film ‘Dillagi’ (1966). That was the beginning of my work to identify him in many more films.

Not much information about the early life of Keshav Rana is available on-line. The only information I know from IMDb is that his full name is Keshav Singh Rana and he belongs to Faizabad in UP. From his filmography, it appears that he came to Mumbai to join the film industry in the later half of 1950s. His first film as an actor was ‘Anjaan’ (1956). His most active years was 1960s and 1970s when he worked in around 50 and 70 films, respectively. On a rough count, Keshav Rana must have worked in around 130 films during 1956-1986.

During the last fortnight, I have seen some important films with Keshav Rana’s  scenes under prominent banners like that of Shakti Samanta, Arjun Hingorani, Ramesh Sippy, J Omprakash, BR Chopra, Prakash Mehra etc. He did a variety of roles in the films but in most of the films, he was moslty typecast as  Police Inspector/Commissioner, Doctor,  Hotel Manager, Barman, a patron of mujra dances etc.  In others films, he mostly performed roles in negative shades and sidekicks to the main actors. Of the films of Keshav Rana, I watched, the only film in which he got a relatively longish role of Puran Bahadur in negative shade of a blackmailer was in ‘Dillagi’ (1966).

Keshav Rana excels in negative roles with a smiling face. But behind his smiling face lies his evil and manipulative designs to blackmail his victims. In this role, he generally avoids fighting and bloodbath in most of his films. He leaves these parts to other henchmen. For example, in films like ‘Dillagi’(1966) and ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’ (1978), he takes out his Rampuri knife but never uses it. Instead, he entrusts his fellow henchmen to fight it out. His light comical roles as a police inspector in ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) with Hema Malini (as Geeta) and as a barman in ‘Shaan’ (1980) with Amitabh Bachchan have been well appreciated.

I have uploaded an audio clip incorporating along with the song, the screen shots of scenes in which Keshav Rana appears in some of his important films. Check out the audio link below.

‘Qatl’ (1986) appears to be Keshav Rana’s last film after which he did not act in any film. I could not get any information as to what he did thereafter.

Keshav Rana had played a small role of a patron of a kotha dancer in ‘Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo’ (1962), the first Bhojpuri film.  The film was directed by Kundan Kumar. The star cast included Kumkum, Ashim Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tiwari, Bhagwan Sinha, Helen, Leela Mishra, Kumari Khanna (Padma Khanna) etc. The story, screen-play and dialogues were written by Nazir Hussain. Songs were written by Shailendra which were set to music by Chitrgupt.

I am presenting the song ‘Luk Chhip Badra Mein Chamke Jaise Chanwa’ from the first Bhojpuri film rendered by Lata Mangeshkar and picturised on Kumkum who is dancing for the patron, Keshav Rana.

Listening to the song in audio clip gives a feel of the dance in a nautanki (folk theatre) in the rural Bhojpuri region. And why not? Both Shailendra and Chitragupt hail from Bhojpur region of Bihar.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 15
——————————————————————————

Now a days we have been managing one or two posts a day daily. When I look back ten years ago, we had similar situation in the blog even in those days.

For instance, on this day ten years ago, viz on 3 april 2010, two songs were covered in the blog viz:

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Main pyaar ka deewaanaa Aayi Milan Ki Bela-1964 All Songs posted
Aayi jhoom ke bahaar Insaaniyat-1955 07 of 17 songs posted

“Insaaniyat”(1955) was produced and directed by S S Wasan for Gemini Pictures, Madras. This movie had Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Bina Rai, Vijaylaxmi, Jayant, Jairaj, Shobhana Samarth, Badr Prasad, Kumar, Agha, Mohana, Zippy (Chimpanzee), T Mukherjee, Ishwar Lala, G v Sharma, Vijay Rao, G Bhatt etc in it.

The movie had a whopping 17 songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered so far.

Song Posted On
Tere sang sang piyaa khel ke main rang 15.07.2009
Chup chup chup hone lagaa kuchh 23.08.2009
Aayi jhoom ke bahaar 03.04.2010
Main bandar hoon shahar kaa … 24.05.2010
Apni chhaayaa mein bhagwaan bithhaa le mujhe 31.07.2013
Raja beta bada hoke jaayega school 30.04.2019
Gori kar le tu aaj singaar 11.12.2019

The third song from this movie viz.Aayi jhoom ke bahaar was covered in the blog ten years ago. So this gives us an opportunity to cover another song from the movie under the “Blog Ten year Challenge” series. So here is the eighth song from “Insaaniyat”(1955). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I request our kowledgeale readers to help identify her as well as others seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala, who keeps a keen eye on “Blog Ten Year Challenge” opportunities which have been rather limited for the last few weeks.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 14
——————————————————————————

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Song-Aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyyo (Namak Halal)(1982) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

“Jung Aur Aman”(1968) was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Beauty Films, Bombay. This “costume” drama movie, a euphemism for a B grade movie, had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Jayant, Murad, Krishna Kumari, Rajan Haksar, Sujata, Sushma, Indmohan, Laxmi Chhaaya, Noorjahaan, Kesri, Moolchand, Mohan Choti, Nadira etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of them were solo songs and one a female duet. Two of these songs have been overed in the past.

Here is the third song from “Jung Aur Aman”(1968) to appear in the blog. This song is a female duet and it is sung by two less known female playback singers viz Krishna Kalle and Pathare. I am not aware who Pathare is. She makes her debut as a playback singer with this song, unless we know her by another name. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on her.

The movie has three synchronised dance songs sung in raj darbaar. This song is on such song. I am unable to identify the two dancers. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

I am unable to distinguish the two female voices as well and that is why I have not bothered to provide colour coding in this song. In any case, Pathare appears to sing only in chorus and not alone, as far as I can tell.

Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.


Song-Hans kar sharaarat karna na (Jung Aur Aman)(1968) Singer-Krishna Kalle, Pathare, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-G S Kohli

‘Shatranj Ke Khilaadi’ (1977) was Satyajit Ray’s first and only Hindi feature film which was based on a short-story by the same name written by Munshi Premchand. The film was produced by Suresh Jindal under the banner of Devki Chitra. From the low budget black and white Bangla films, Satyajit Ray charted his way into high budget Hindi colour film with multi-star cast with Mumbai and Kolkata based actors and also actors from the West. The actors included Sanjeev Kumar, Saeed Jaffrey, Amjad Khan, Shabana Azmi, Farida Jalal, Victor Bannerji, Richard Attenborough, Tom Alter, Barry John, Farooque Shaikh, David Abraham, Veena etc.

After successfully producing his first Hindi film ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), Producer, Suresh Jindal in a chance meeting with Satyajit Ray sometime in 1974 requested him to direct for him a Hindi film, or an English film. If not, he is prepared to produce a Bengali film for him to direct. Satyajit Ray’s reaction to his request was positive as he said that he himself was thinking of directing a Hindi film. This opened their partnership of making ‘Shatranj Ke Khilaadi’ (1977).

From 1974 to 1976, the time was spent mostly on a detailed research on the subject including meetings with scholars in India and the UK. Both Satyajit Ray and Suresh Jindal visited various places in India and abroad which had connection with the story of the film for checking the authenticity of the historical events and also for the selection of authentic props. The visits included havelis of Lucknow and Jaipur, thakur baris of North Calcutta (Kolkata), museums and libraries of Hyderabad and London etc. The shooting of the film was delayed by few months due to non-availability of Sanjeev Kumar for health reasons. The film’s shooting finally commenced in December 1976 and wound up by June 1977. For details about the making of this film, one can read the book ‘My Adventures with Satyajit Ray : The Making of Shatranj Ke Khiladi’ by Suresh Jindal (Harper Collins, 2017).

I had covered in detail the story of the film while discussing one of the songs from the film, Kaanha main tose haari. Just to recapitulate in short, the story is set in the background of the impending take over of Awadh by the British troops as they feel that the Nawab of Awadh, Wajid Ali Shah is busier with singing, dancing and poetry reciting sessions than governing his kingdom. On the other hand, two of the aristocrats of Nawab are unmindful of what is in store for Awadh and of their families, as they are addicted to playing chess. At the end of film, Satyajit Roy has highlighted situational irony in which while Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, in order to avoid bloodshed, abdicates Awadh to Britishers, the chess playing aristocrats continue to play chess at a far-off place from their houses in order to avoid calls from Nawab to fight the Britisher troops. In the event, a bloody fight ensues between the two on a trivial chess move in which they are prepared to kill each other.

The film had 5 songs of which two songs have been covered in the Blog. Of the remaining 3 songs, 2 songs are partially used in the film although the record versions of them are longer. The remaining one song ‘hindola jhoole shyam’ which I am presenting here was deleted from the film before its the release. The song is rendered by Calcutta Youth Choir (as a chorus) which is set to music by Satyajit Ray. The lyrics are written by Wajid Ali Shah. Incidentally, Calcutta Youth Choir was set in 1958 by Ruma Guha Thakurta along with Salil Chowdhury and Satyajit Ray.

The long prelude and the last interlude music with short taraana would indicate that this song has been written for Kathak dance performance or for a musical play on Krishna. The verses were written by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah. The last stanza has some Urdu words. Some of the Urdu poets like Nazeer Akbaradbadi and Hasrat Mohani have written many poems in praise of the beauty of Lord Krishna and on his divine love for Radha in the mixed language of Urdu and Awadhi/Brij.

I was eager to know as to where this deleted song would have appeared in the film. I had read that Nawab Wajid Ali Shah had written plays about Lord Krishna and his raasleela with Radha in which, sometime he himself used to perform as Krishna. With this background, I guess this song would have fitted in the beginning of the film, during which a short Kathak dance is being performed by Wajid Ali Shah (Amjad Khan) as Lord Krishan along with Radha and other dancers.

The song is not only pleasing to ears but also soothing to the mind.
