Today’s song is from the blockbuster of the 90’s decade, ‘Hum aapke hain kaun’-94 (HAHK). The song ‘Didi tera devar deewana’ is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramanyam and chorus. The Dev Kohli song is composed by Ramlaxman.

Many of the readers may find it difficult to digest that this comparatively ‘New’ song is discussed by a person who usually writes on ‘antiques ‘, i.e. songs from films of 30s and 40s. A solid jump of 50+ years ? Wonder pe Thunder ! You need not be surprised.

It is not that I do not like new films or songs, but nowadays everything about these films or songs is discussed on Print and TV media so much, that there is hardly anything left to write about. In any case, I have discussed earlier many songs from films of 80s,90s and 2000 and after that also. For example a song from film Lagaan-2001 was discussed,also from Zubeida-2000, Chameli ki shaadi-88 etc were discussed by me. In this connection, my favourite thinking is “Not all that was made before 1970 was good and not all that is made after 1970 is bad “.

These days I have lost patience to sit through 2 and more hours to watch a film, but I do have some new films listed as my favourites too. ( I saw these films in instalments,on TV). In recent times, few films impressed me no end. Film ‘Hum apke hai kaun'(hereafter called HAHK)-94 is one of them. I genuinely liked the film and few of its songs. The film came as a Puff of fresf air amidst the cluster of third rate meaningless movies. This Rajashri film totally fulfilled its purpose of clean entertainment. Though established in 1947, Rajashri films’ first noteworthy film was Aarti-62, followed by Dosti-64. From the 60s to the 80s, they gave many successful clean family entertaining films.

In 1988, Rajashri brought an era of Love stories that crossed class barriers. Film ‘Maine pyar kiya’-88 was a love story that touched hearts of youngsters. The film introduced a young Director Sooraj Barjatya ( grandson of the founder of RF) and also brought a star Salman Khan to make him a Superstar. It was his just second movie in career.

The same team came back in 5 years with HAHK and the film made all other hits like Sholey and Jai Santoshi Maa look like ‘also ran ‘! Few people know that HAHK is a remake of Rajashri’s own film “Nadiya ke paar-82”, starring Sachin, Sadhna Singh,Inder Thakur, Mitali etc etc. ( Inder Thakur died in Air India crash soon after.)

As is well known, the famous painter M F Hussain had crush on Madhuri. He saw film HAHK 85 times-as per a report in Indian Express (variously differing in other news portals from 60 to 90 times !). He then made a film ‘Gajgamini ‘-2000, with Madhuri. As expected, the film was a disaster at the Box Office. He also made lot many paintings of Madhuri ( she took payments per sitting).

As per a report in Indian Express, Madhuri got paid an amount of 2.75 crores for HAHK role of Nisha. It was also the first film to cross a collection of 1 Billion. With an investment of just 43 million, the film grossed 3.1 Billion in all. In 1994, mind you ! It was described as “the biggest Block Buster of Modern Era”. The film won Film Fare awards for Best Film, Best Director and of course best Heroine. It bagged the National award for Best popular film providing Wholesome Entertainment.

Why did the film become so captivating for the Indian audience ? The reasons could be…..

1. We like big business families with big houses with big lawns, so that Cricket can be played.
2. We love big weddings with all details,games,dance and music.
3. Nowadays, as a result of HAHK, no wedding is complete without Dance and music.
4. We love to see beautiful girls and handsome naughty boys falling in Love.
5. Comedy plots are a must.
6. Interesting characters like Anupam kher and Bindu.
7. New meaning for coughing…for young boys and girls.
8. Chhup Chhup ke Pyaar !
9. Active and clever Dog.
10. A Happy Ending !

Madhuri Dixit is my favourite actress ( but I am not MFHussain,please). Once I had a pleasure to get introduced to her when I went to a relative who stayed on the first floor of the same building where Madhuri stayed on second floor. She had come to them like an ordinary Marathi Mulgi in casual dress and still looked beautiful. Madhuri was born on 15-5-1967 and her first film was Abodh-84. She acted in 71 films. She came in limelight with her dance on song ‘Ek do teen…’from Tezaab-88. It was choreographed by Saroj khan. Same year she did a controversial scene with Vinod Khanna in film “Dayavaan”-88. In 1993, she created waves with her dance and song “Choli ke peeche..” in film Khalnayak. This too was choreographed by Saroj khan. Her last film released is ‘Total Dhamaal”-2018, directed by Inder Kumar.

Salman khan ( Abdul Rasheed Salim Salman khan) was born on 27-12-1965. Except for his first 2 films, I never liked him, as an actor and a human being. That of course is besides the point. His films mostly run full houses. Till today he acted in 106 films,his latest being Loveratri-2018. 2 films are slated for release in 2019 already.After success of these 2 initial films, Salman khan thought that the Filmy name of ‘ PREM ‘ was lucky for him. Subsequently, till 2015, he has used name PREM in 15 films. ( by the way, Amitabh Bachhan used the name VIJAY in 20 films till 2010, Jeetendra used it in 18 films and Mithun used it in 16 films.)

The film’s music played a major role in its success. The Music Director was Ramlaxman. Originally, it was a team of two brothers- elder was Surendra and the Younger was Vijay Patil. They used to be a part of professional orchestras, doing public shows all over Maharashtra. The popular and very successful Comedian of Marathi cinema- Dada Knodake was impressed with the duo and offered them his film, ” Pandu Havaldar-75″. It was Dada Kondake who gave them the name Ram Laxman since they were brothers. Film’s music became very popular and they gave music to Dada Kondke’s 11 films in a row, from 75 to 82. Their first break for Hindi films came in 1977 with Agent Vinod.

The elder brother expired immediately after their first film itself, due to Jaundice. Vijay decided to continue the name Ramlaxman. His first major break in Hindi came after 25 films. ‘ Maine Pyar Kiya”-89 was a Musical hit film. Within next 5 years and another 25 films he gave music to HAHK. This time he hit Gold. The success was unprecedented and long lasting. Till 2016, he gave music to 61 Hindi films, with 433 songs to his credit. Side by side, he was doing Marathi films also. From 1975 to 2011 i.e. in 36 years, he did 37 Marathi films.

The story of Hum Apke hai kaun-94 was–

It is a very simple plot. Mohnish Behl ( Rajesh Nath) and Salman ( Prem Nath)are brothers raised by their bachelor uncle Alok Nath ( Kailash Nath). Alok Nath arranges an engagement for Mohnish Behl with Renuka Shahane ( Pooja), daughter of his old friends Anupam Kher ( Prof. Sidharth Caudhary) and Reema Lagoo ( Mrs. Chaudhary). At the engagement, Salman meets Renuka’s younger sister Madhuri ( Nisha). Through the engagement, marriage, and then preparations for the birth of Renuka and Mohnish’s first child, Salman and Madhuri secretly flirt and become closer and closer. Finally, they reveal their love to Renuka who immediately approves and declares her plan to arrange their engagement (in her role as the oldest female in Salman’s family). But before she can tell anyone else, she dies after a tragic fall, leaving her son motherless. In an effort to provide a mother for the baby, Alok suggests to Anupam and Reema that Mohnish should marry Madhuri. Madhuri at first misunderstands them to mean Salman. However, even when she learns the truth, she decides not to say anything as it has brought so much joy to everyone to plan this wedding. Salman understands and accepts her decision. At the last moment, the truth is revealed, through a Dog Redo ( Tuffy ). The families understand immediately the purpose of their sacrifice and applaud them for making it, but insist that it is purposeless, Madhuri can move into the household as an aunt rather than a mother to this orphaned baby. Happy Ending with another wedding.

Today’s song ” Didi tera devar deewana” was easily the most popular song of the film ( though I like ” Paise de do joote le lo” more), out of the 14 songs the film had.This number (14) was much above the average number of film songs per film during a period from 1950 onwards- that is about 45 years. The film too was longer than average films. It was 3 hours and 43 minutes running time. Very few people know that this song was ‘ inspired’ ( read copied) from the song ” Saare Nabian”, sung by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The song tune was forced upon the composer by the producers and the director. The film’s album sold like hot cakes.

Let us now enjoy the teasing song, which is easily one of the longest songs spanning 7m and 38 seconds.

“Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) was directed by Naseem for Pushpaanjali Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shammi Kapoor, Jabeen Jalil, Anwar, Achla sachdev, Nazeer Hussain, Ifthikhar, Radhika, Hammad, Manohar, Prem Sagar, Nirmal, Poonam, Heera, Shashibalka, Shujaat, Pyare, Sooraj etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered.

Here is the fifth song from “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Vishwamitra Adil is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bipin Baabul.

The song is picturised on as a party/ get together song on Jabeen Jaleel (as far as I can tell). Shammi Kapoor is also visible alongwith several other people and all of them are shown dancing in this western style song.

Blog Day : 3554 Post No. : 14261

So, minus 1 and plus 1, we still got to the 100th Yippeee film yesterday.

Minus 1 because on 3rd April, Atul ji had announced the Yippeee-ing of the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983), after posting its ‘sixth + seventh’ songs together – an announcement that turned out to be incorrect. Avinash ji pointed out that there is still one more song to be posted from this film. With some more leg work and info-search we now have more detailed info about the song list of this film. Below is the details of the songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ that I had shared with Atul ji the same day, in email.

I just checked the 1981-90  volume compiled by Jagdish Purohit and Ghulam Qureshi, with the involvement of Suman Chaurasia of Indore. This volume was published as the HFM lovers were/are waiting for Hamraaz ji to bring out his next volume.

In this volume, the compilers have listed 12 songs for this film. Since ‘Razia Sultan’ is a well known film, and a landmark in itself, I am sure lots of information sources are available and there is less chance that the compilers would be in error. In a musical film like this, number of songs certainly would not be limited to 6/7.

The list of all songs, as per this volume, is

  1. Ae Dil e Nadaan
  2. Aayi Zanjeer Ki Jhankar
  3. Naghma e Mohabbat
  4. Jalta Hai Badan
  5. Hariyala Banna
  6. Ae Khuda Shukr Tera
  7. Khwaab Ban Kar Koi Aayega
  8. Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai
  9. Taraana e Jashn e Taajpsohi
  10. Shubh Ghadi Aayi Re
  11. Ae Dil e Nadaan (this may be part 2, or a reprisal)
  12. Falak Se Awaaz Hai

As per our blog listing, we have as yet covered 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and possibly 11. As per the singer list, the songs 9 and 10 seem to important loaded songs; 9 has 4 singers and 10 has 6 singers. Both these songs have Ustad Faiyaaz Ahmed Khan, and Ustad Niaz Ahmed Khan in the list of singers.

Just like maybe Pakeezaah, the remaining songs are probably less heard, less popular ones, which may drop from the collective memory.  You may recall that the non-Ghalib items in Mirza Ghalib (3 in number) remained obscure for quite a long time, since the radio and the radio listening public focused on the Ghalib creations in this film.

So that was minus 1 for 3rd April.

However, Atul ji is quick to also point out that back on 16th Jan, we had actually Yippeee’d two films together on the same day. That had happened, because both Atul ji and I were separately working on two different Yippeee posts, and our communications to each other regarding the posts seemed to have crossed but not read by each other. So in quick succession, both he and I posted two Yippeee songs that day – “Gaadi Dilli Waali Chali” (‘Delhi Junction’, 1960) and “Soyi Soyi Chaandni Hai. . .” (‘Khazaana’, 1951). In his write up, Atul ji has noted that,

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

In fact, as Atul ji was hastening to complete the above Yippeee post for that day, I was equally busy on my keyboard, and almost simultaneously – a difference of about 45 minutes, I too posted the Yippeee post for the day, only to realize immediately that the work is now duplicated. So I immediately went back into my post and added this footnote,

[Ed Note: It was only after this song got posted that I took a breather, only to notice that Atul ji has also already welcomed another film (the previous post) to Yippeee-land today. It most certainly seems like the ‘yippeee-ing hour’, what with two films racing to Yippeee-land, just within minutes of each other. 😀 😀 ]

So, the two miscues cancelled each other out, and we are firmly able to announce that 100 Yippeee films have happened in the first 100 days of this calendar year (Gregorian). 🙂

Now, moving beyond the century yesterday, we come to ‘IOI’ of the Yippeee train today. Atul ji had posted the penultimate song of this film yesterday. Yes, I refer to the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’ – a film that has a full list of very memorable songs. This film made its debut on our blog way back on 12th Nov, 2010. Just see the list below of the songs posted so far. Each one of these songs is a veritable gem – in a mood that is so representative of the music of the 1960s.

Main To Tere Haseen Khayaalon Mein Kho Gayaa Sangraam 1965 3195 12-Nov-10
Masti Mein Doley Jiyaa Ho Sangraam 1965 4270 25-Jul-11
Dam Dam Dam Dam Damroo Baaje Sangraam 1965 10405 25-Oct-14
O Tera Chhup Chhup Ke Chale Aana Sangraam 1965 14093 23-Feb-18
Nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re Sangraam 1965 14255 10-Apr-18

These songs represent a music that was full of verve, full of energy, full of a joyous expression of love, taking in a lot of influence of the western rock and pop genres. Rhythm was more or less the dominant temper of this music, which was made for a popular taste that was already initiated by an increasing influence of western rhythms on the young minds of this nation. The decade of the 1960s was the time when the joys of freedom and the pain of partition were both tending to fade into paler shades, getting better of the passing generations.

The film is produced under the banner of Film India, Bombay, and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, and King Kong.

After his earlier cameo appearances in films of 1950s, the first lead role that Dara Singh landed was in the film ‘King Kong’ of 1962. This was followed by ‘Aawaara Abdullah’ in 1963, then ‘Ek Tha Alibaba’, ‘King of Carnival’, ‘Rustom e Baghdad’, also 1963. In 1964, we see him in ‘Aandhi Aur Toofaan’, ‘Aaya Toofaan’, ‘Hercules’, ‘Dara Singh’ (yes, a film titled after his own name), ‘Rustom e Rome’, ‘Baadshah’, ‘Veer Bhimsen’. So when we come to 1965, Dara Singh has already appeared in a lead role in 12 films in just three years. The reason I am making this observation is that when I viewed this film in preparation for this post, I found a very interesting aspect. In this film, he is accompanied in the star cast by his younger brother Randhawa. The two brothers have already appeared together in ‘Aawaara Abdullah’, ‘Hercules’ and ‘Veer Bhimsen’. This is their fourth film together. As I viewed this film, I realized that the dialogues of both are dubbed in voices other than their own. I have not had time to sample once again his earlier films (some of which I know I have seen earlier) to ascertain whether this dubbing aspect is present in any of his earlier films. I do remember reading, well a long time back, that in the initial years of his career, his diction of Hindi/Urdu dialogues was less than desirable, as his voice had a very strong Punjabi accent to it. But I did not realize that he would be going through more than a dozen films and still be required to have his dialogues dubbed. The voice of the dubbing artist is very familiar, but I am not able to place a name to it right now.

The film is a costume drama with a strong element of palace intrigues and lost and found siblings stories. The corrupt Wazir (prime minister) has the king assassinated, and usurps the throne for himself. The king has two sons. The nanny for the two children is able to escape the bloodshed in the palace, along with one of the princes. The Wazir kind of adopts the second son, and raises him on a diet of lies and misinformation, hiding the truth about the death of the king, his father. The Wazir has a daughter, whom he wants to get married to the prince-in-custody. The prince-in-custody also fancies the lady. But the lady had lost her heart to a commoner in one of the villages in the kingdom, during some interludes that are very conveniently created by the story writers. The person she fancies, is actually the other prince, who had been taken away by the nanny and was raised by her in anonymity. So the tale of this film is about how the two brothers at first are enemies on account of fancying the same lady; then some way through the film, the truth about siblings is revealed and they become a team to vanquish the scheming Wazir and reclaim their father’s kingdom. And yes, the younger sibling gracefully steps aside for his elder brother to take over. 🙂

The one more interesting thing that I note about this film is the long drawn fighting sequences. Regular fans of Dara Singh films will recall the name King Kong. Yes, we had a wrestler by this name in that era when freestyle wrestling was a hugely popular spectator sport with the likes of Dara Singh, Randhawa, Goldstein, Imam Bux, Sheikh Ali, Hamida Pehalwan and of course the Great Gama Pehalwan etc. being the big names billed for such events. Believe it or not, but that was an era when for a freestyle wrestling match between some great names, one could expect anywhere from 1 Lakh to 2 Lakh spectators to be present (a Lakh is 100,000).

King Kong was a hugely bulky wrestler. His real name was Emile Czaja, and he was of mixed Indian – Australian descent, born in Hungary. He became a professional wrestler in the sub-continent and also appeared for bouts in all of south east Asia and Japan etc. Like Dara Singh he also migrated into Hindi films during the late 1950s and 60s, and appeared in many films generally as part of the villain’s team that would give a thrashing the heores to start with, and then at the end, get a beating of their lives at the hands of the lead wrestler. On YouTube, there are a few video footage clips of actual wrestling matches between Dara Singh and King Kong. Both of them appeared in many Hindi films together.

King Kong makes an appearance in this film also, as one of the henchmen of the devious Wazir. He has an additional significant presence in this film, as he also plays the father to the the young lady (Aruna Irani) who is the love interest of Maruti, the sidekick of Dara Singh in the film, making up a very detailed CSP (comic side plot). He fights on the side of the baddies, but eventually gives in to the goodies, since his daughter is in love with one of the goodies team member.

Ah yes, so I was talking about the long drawn out fight sequences in the film. They begin to appear almost from the start of the film, continue regularly throughout. Given these segments, the CSP and the songs, the actual story and dialogues have very little room to maneuver themselves. Everything other than the fight sequences seem to be in a hurry to get themselves done with. 🙂

Today’s song is the sixth song in the film. And what a rollicking dance song this one is. The trio of music directors – Lala Asar and Sattaar seem to be outdoing themselves in getting through the songs of this film. The song is filmed as a group dance song. The occasion is that the Wazir’s daughter has fled her father’s palace, choosing to come to the village where Dara Singh resides with his mother (actually his nanny from the royal babyhood days). The Wazir’s soldiers are chasing her, and they have been given a good beating by Dara Singh, Maruti and their team. This song is a celebration of their victory. We see Dara Singh and Geetanjali (Wazir’s daughter) and Dara Singh’s ‘mother’ seated prominently amongst the audience watching this performance. Maruti is part of this group dance. The video clip that is available is somewhat out of focus, on account of colors being splayed a little, as the photochemicals on the celluloid have aged. The face of the lead dancer is not very clear, and before I hazard a guess as to her identity, I request other friends and readers to please help identify this actress.

Enjoy this final song from this film to make it on to the billboard of our blog. And with that, we announce the Yippeee-dom status to this film. All aboard.

The eighth and final song from “Mr India”(1961) is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi, alongwith chorus. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kphli.

Only the audio of the song is available. It sounds like a dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Mr India”(1961) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Today (10 march 2018) is the 100th day of the year 2018. We have been seeing one movie attaining YIPPEEHOOD everyday from the first day of the year 2018 . This streak lasted till 2 april 2018. I posted what I thought a “YIPPEE” song on 3 april 2018 as well, but it was pointed out the next day that the movie had more songs. So the YIPPEE streak came to an end, but that was not because of any lack of effort or motivation on our part. We have since resumed the one one YIPPEE movie per day routine once again.

There was one day (16 january 2018) when two YIPPEE movies had been covered. So in effect, we have YIPPEED 100 movies in 100 days of the year and the movie “Mr India”(1961) is the 100th YIPPEED movie of 2018. So this is another of those “artificial” centuries milestones that we often achieve in the blog these days. 🙂

That is not the only “artificial” century distinction with this post. There is another. This movie becomes the 100th YIPEED movie in the blog whose title begins with the letter M. 🙂

HFGK mentions nine songs in the blog for the movie. But on listening to the two balance songs, they turn out to be one and the same. So in effect, “Ten O’clock” (1958) had eight songs in it.

Here is the eighth and final song from “Ten O’clock” (1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus. Khawar Zamaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Ganguly.

The song is picturised as a dance song on an undentified lady and others. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer. Yakoob is also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Ten O’clock” (1958) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

An interesting observation regarding the Yippeee process for the film that is getting Yippeee’d today. Regular readers would have noticed a pattern in the manner that the films are getting Yippeee’d these days. Generally, in the case of films with just two or three songs remaining to be posted, the last two (or last three) songs kind of appear at a very rapid pace, almost on a daily basis, one right on top of the other. With such films, the penultimate one (or two) songs appear in quick succession followed by the final song of the film, on the next day.

Not in the case of the film being Yippeee’d today. On examining the list of songs of this film as they appear in the table below, the penultimate song of this film came on board on 12th Jan, 2018. And its Yippeee song today appears after a gap of almost two and a half months. And the reason for this delay – it is yours truly, of course. 🙂

When the penultimate song got posted on 12th Jan earlier this year, I immediately sent a note to Atul ji, requesting for doing the Yippeee honors for this film. The reason is that I wanted to bring on board the video of the song. Apparently the earlier posted songs of the film ‘Bus Conductor’, from 1959, were in video form, as one can make out from the write-ups of the first three songs of this film posted. These first three songs came on board on 2009, 2014 and 2016, and they were earlier available in video form. Now, these songs are no longer available, and the YT account of the erstwhile uploader has been blocked due to “multiple copyright infringements”. So the video clips of these songs are no longer available online. (Once again, the caveat – as far as I can search it online 🙂 ).

I have been able to acquire the video of this film through one of my good friends. I do not wish to say that we are the only ones having a this video film. Quite possibly, the video version is also in the hands of other friends, known or unknown. So anyway, I wanted to upload the video of this song for this post today. But as I was checking the previous posts for this film, I realized what had happened, Then I decided not to post the video clip of the song on YT. And the link that I am using in this post for now, is the audio upload of this song by Sa Re Ga Ma.
[Ed Note: The video clip of the song is now added on Vimeo, as suggested by Atul ji. The link is added below.]

And so, with this song, today we add the 1959 film ‘Bus Conductor’ to the list of films having all their songs showcased on our blog.

The film is a production from the banner of Sharda Films, Bombay, produced by Ashok Bhambri. It is a social drama, directed by Dwarka Khosla. The cast of actors, as listed in the Geet Kosh, reads like – Shyama, Premnath, Amarnath, Maruti, Satish Batra, Sujata, Umesh Sharma, Ramlal, Khairati, Narbada Shankar, Ameer Bano, Sadhna, Surya Kumari, Helen, Kanchanmala, Sheela Vaz and Cuckoo. An interesting aside here. Maruti, whose name appears in the list actors, plays the role of a dance teacher in the film. He is the friend of the hero, played by Premnath. As I was watching the credits of the film, I discovered that the story of this film is written by Maruti himself.

The film has six songs. All the songs are written by Noor Devasi. And the music has been composed by the duo of Bipin-Babul. The five songs of this film posted earlier, are listed below.

Dil Se Main Mujh Se Dil Takra Gaya Bus Conductor 1491 23-Jun-09
Zindagi Mein Rang Bhara Hai Pyaar Ka Bus Conductor 10550 29-Nov-14
Man Mein Tere Kyaa Hai Bataa De Gori Bus Conductor 12625 27-Nov-16
Daanv Chalne Ko Hai Bus Conductor 13613 26-Sep-17
Paas Hamaare Aaiye Bus Conductor 13909 12-Jan-18

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle, and in the film it is presented as a dream sequence. Shyama is sleeping, and she sees a dream in which she is singing this song, as she plays the sitar, and that she is also dancing to this song. The sequence is filmed as alternating shots that show Shyama playing the sitar and singing, and also dancing simultaneously. Surely possible in a dream sequence only.

As I was checking out the earlier posts, I came across the query from Atul ji himself, as to what is the ‘Bus Conductor’ connection in the film. So I checked out the video. The role of the bus conductor in the film is played by Premnath, who is otherwise a rich person, belonging to an affluent family. The reason that he goes underground and becomes a bus conductor, is explained in the beginning of the film.

Premnath belongs to a very rich family of landlords. He is an aspiring writer, albeit an unsuccessful one. He writes short stories, and sends them for publication to different magazines. His stories are always getting rejected. And so he makes a decision that he will leave his home and its luxuries, and live like a common person, search for a job, and work to earn a living – all this for a learning experience of life, so that he is able to genuinely write about life and people, and make his stories more convincing.

There is an emotionally charged scene in the beginning of the film, in which we see him receive some more rejections in mail, and we see an outburst in which he tells his bhabhi (wife of elder brother) that he is leaving home, and will return only when he has achieved success as a writer. He declares that he forgoes all the comforts and luxuries of his rich-person life, will go out into the world to fend for himself, get a firsthand experience of a common man’s life, and write about it. With this loud and emotionally charged declaration, he departs from his home to start a new life incognito. I must add that the performance by Premnath in this scene, did not sound very convincing to me.

So he leaves his luxuries and finds a job as a bus conductor. The rest of the film is about his interactions with people. He makes friends with Maruti, who lives in a chawl and dreams about being a choreographer in films. He meets Shyama who is also from a rich family, but is forced to ride a bus one day when her car breaks down. She forgets her bag on the bus, giving an opportunity to the make-believe bus conductor to play the honest good Samaritan and take the bag to her home. Which of course leads to more things, as expected.

He also witnesses a murder, as one passenger alighting from his bus is pushed under the wheels of the bus itself – he tries to chase the culprit but is unable to apprehend him. The person behind the murder is connected with Shyama’s family, and story gets into the expected filmy complexities.

Of course, all is well in the end, as the rich girl gets a rich husband to be, the murder is solved and the culprit apprehended – rather killed as he runs on to a railway track as he is being chased by the hero and the police. If the writer wrote a new story and it got published; I must have missed that sequence in the quick review that I did of this film. And the rich-boy-masqerading-as-a-poor-boy returns home to his luxuries with his lady love.

On the whole, it is quite an un-convincing plot, with equally un-convincing performances. And as is always the case, it is the songs that draw us.

But nonetheless, one more film to be Yippeee’d on our blog.

“Bandhe Haath”(1973) was directed by O.P.Goyal for Ralhan Productions, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz, Amitabh Bachchan, O.P.Ralhan, Kumud Chhugani, Ajit, Anjana, Sardar Akhtar, Ram Mohan, Ranjit, Madan Puri, Gajanan Jagirdar, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Baldev Mehta, Pinchoo Kapoor, Kamaldeep, Moolchand, Sikandar, Ravikant, Ratan Gourang, Maqbool, Usha Amershi, Vanita Thakur etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Bandhe Haath”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R d Burman.

I have only been able to locate the audio as of now. I am sure that the video too is available and that it is picturised as a dance song on Mumtaz and others. Let us make do with the audio for the time being.

What a lilting dance song it is. The tune does bear some similarity with another R D Burman composition, viz the holi song from “Sholay”(1975) and may be some other sngs as well.

Blog Day : 3535 Post No. : 14200

Yesterday (22 march 2018), the blog was having a dot day till about 8 PM and then three articles were published just as the day was getting over, duly taking care of the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie for the day. Today (23 march 2018), we have had four songs discussed already, and that covers the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie.

But we are not done for the day. People have not noticed that we are onto another landmark. These days we mention the post number in the beginning of the post. The last article had its post number as 14199. So the next article has to be the net century post for the blog, viz post number 14200.

This century post occasion must be the most uneventful as well as the most underprepared century post. I was not sure about the song I was going to pick for the occasion till very late. I thought that I had chosen the song. But that song got changed in the afternoon. In the evening that song got changed again. This song, the 14200th song for the blog will appear at around 11 PM IST, after being finalised at about 8 PM ! In fact I discovered this song and heard it for the first time at 8 PM !

I had decided that this century post would cover a song penned by Kaifi Azmi. so the songs that I kept chosing and changing were all penned by Kaifi Azmi.

It was yesterday evening that I had decided on Kaifi Azmi as the artist to feature for the century song. So I began to research on the songs of Kaifi Azmi. I found, much to my surprise that the list of all songs penned by Kaifi Azmi is not available online, unlike the case for many other artists. Kaifi Azmi has an official site but I found that site a half hearted attempt and there I could not find what I was looking for.

So I spend my time from yesyterday evening till this evening compiling the list of all Kaifi Azmi songs that he has penned in HFM. I arrived at a figure of 351 songs from 88 movies. I was under the impression that Kaifi Azmi was on 199 in the blog and so I was hoping that this song would combine blog century will Kaifi Azmi’s 200th song in the blog. But I found that my earlier calcutaion was incorrect. Kaifi Azmi is on 189 and not quite 199. Nevertheless, now I have a fairly good idea about Kaifi Azmi’s output in Hindi movies.

I find that the music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi worked could be broadly categorised in two categories- First category was those who were lovers of urdu. Second category were those who did not have command over Hindi/ Urdu but they realised the value of a good lyricist.

In the first category, we have music directors like Madan Mohan, Ghulam Mohammad, Khayyam, Jaidev, A R Qureshy, Pt Lachchiram, O P Nayyar, Roshan etc etc. Kaifi Azmi worked with Madan Mohan in 14 movies, which is the highest number of movies for him with one music director. On the other end of the spectrum, he worked with Roshan and O P Nayyar in just one song each. The first song in the blog was sole Roshan composition that Kaifi Azmi penned. So this blog was starged with a rare song though it was not realised at that time. 🙂

The only O P Nayyar composition that was penned by Kaifi Azmi was the lilting title song of “Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi” (1966).

The other category of music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi was associated in HFM were those who had poor command over Hindi/ Urdu. They were mostly Bangla speakers. But what compositions they created with Kaifi Azmi. This category of music directors include names like S D Burman, Hemant Kumar, Kamal Mitra, Bappi Lahiri, Aparesh Lahiri, Robin, Kanu Roy, Dilip Roy etc.

For this occasion, I have chosen a song that must be regarded as a rare song on many counts. This song is a rare song per se, in the sense that I had not heard this song till now, even though this song was composed in 1970, when I as a precocious music loving kid would listen to all HFM that would get played on Radio, loudspeakers etc.

This song can also be desribed as rare because it is a club song as well as a Helen dance song. One does not associate Kaifi Azmi with a Helen dance song, but this song is very much a Helen dance song.

Though the song has dance by Helen, she does not do any lip syncing. The song is a male solo song. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, regarded uncharitably as poor man’s Rafi by some. The song is lip synced as a party song in Shammi Kapoor style. No, it is lip synced neither by Shammi Kapoor nor by Vishwajeet, whom many people rather uncharitably regarded as poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. the song is lip synced by Chandrashekhar who could well be described as a poor man’s Vishwajeet. That would make him poor man’s poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. 🙂 The song does have such self effacing lines as

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar

The picturisation also shows some well known villains in attendance. K N Singh and Jeewan are present on the occasion. Jeewan seems to have understood every word of this heavy duty lyrics, going by his facial expression. 🙂

I got to listen to the song a few times in the process of noting down of the lyrics. I found the song growingon me. It is that kind of song.

So here is this unsung song as the rather unnoticed 14200th song in the blog. This century took a sedate 26 days. Hopefully we will pick up speed in the coming days and weeks.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support, good wishes and encouragement that keep fuelling this musical bandwagon. Let us hope that this bandwagon keep on rolling, like the mythical perpetual motion machine.


Song-Chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein (Daghabaaz)(1970) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Dilip Roy

Lyrics

chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
aur kisi ne bhi badhke sambhaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
dard patthar ne seene mein paala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
log hanste rahe
koi rota raha
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
mujhko mahfil se lekin nikaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

Blog Day : 3535 Post No. : 14197

“Suhaagraat”(1968) was directed by R Bhattacharya for A J Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rajshree, Johny Walker, Mehmood, Dhumal, Shabnam, Prakash, Sulochana, Jankidas, Moti Chatterji, Bipin Gupta etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Suhaagraat”(1968) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a village fair dance song on Rajshree who is seen singing and dancing alongwith many other dancers. She singles out Jeetendra for her advances, while talking about becoming grown up (laagi re julmi umariya) which causes her to fall down frequently (main gir gir jaaun).

I have noticed that Lata avoided singing cabarat songs, but she did not realise that such village fair songs are also sort of like native cabarat dances, as far as their dance steps as well as lyrics are concerned. 🙂

Here is the sixth and final song from “Pardesi”(1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

What a hidden gem of a song it is ! It is a synchronised dance song picturised on Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. The picturisation shows people gathered around the dancers who sing and dance while we have Manmohan Krishna playing “Been” and a gentleman (whom I am unable to identify) playing guitar.

This song can be described as a snake dance song, a dance form which has become quite popular nowadays thanks to Bangladeshi cricketers. 🙂 The snake dance steps of theb Bangladeshi cricketers were taken from the “Nagina”(1986) song Main teri dushman dushman tu meri main naagan to sapera. This dance step has been mass copied by Sri Lankan cricket watching public as well as famous people (like Sunil Gavaskar, for instance) by now. So the “novelty” value of that snake dance step has been lost. Have no worry. Here is another snake dance song, one that is performed by Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. Being a synchronised dance song, it is a fit snake dance song for a pair of Bangladeshi batsmen batting together at the crease. They can dance like Mumtaz and Padma Khanna whenever they feel that that are on the verge of winning a match. 🙂 And do not forget to give credit to me for this wonderful snake dance song. 🙂

With this song, “Pardesi”(1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
