This movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past. Here are their details:-

Here is the fourth and final song from “Heera Panna”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman. In the song, Dev Saab is seen posing as a fashion photographer who claims to get skimpily clad females to pose for him. 🙂 I do not think too many moviegoers were convinced when the movie was released. Dev Saab and Rahman made their debuts together in the same movie in 1946 in “Ham Sab Ek Hain”. But we find Rahman playing a middle aged man in “Heera Panna”(1973) while Dev Saab kept insisting on playing half his age, looking as unconvincing as one can be. 🙂

The very first song of the movie, viz the theme song was the most popular song from the movie as far as I was concerned. I remember all the songs from the movie though I suspect that these songs have become rather less known songs by now.

With this song, “Heera Panna”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Main tasweer utaartaa hoon (Heera Panna)(1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

haan
zara hans ke
zara aur khhilkhhilaa ke
steady please

main tasveer utaartaa hoon
bikhri hui haseenon ki
zulfen sanvaartaa hoon
phir zulfon ke saaye mein
main raaten guzaartaa hoon
haaye
main tasveer utaartaa hoon
bikhri hui haseenon ki
zulfen sanvaartaa hoon
phir zulfon ke saaye mein
main raate guzaartaa hoon

koi haseenaa kitni bhi magroor ho
husn ki duniya mein kitni mashhoor ho
koi haseenaa kitni bhi magroor ho
husn ki duniya mein kitni mashhoor ho
masti mein choor ho
paas ho ke door ho
arre masti mein choor ho
paas ho ke door ho
daudi chali aati hai
main jisko pukaartaa hoon
main tasveer utaartaa hoon

chaand ki bhi na padi jinpe kiran
maine dekhe un haseenon ke badan
chaand ki bhi na padi jinpe kiran
maine dekhe un haseenon ke badan
meraa aisa hai chalan
jaane jaan o jaaneman
tod ke saare parde
main sabko nihaartaa hoon
main tasveer utaartaa hoon
haay bikhri hui haseenon ki
zulfen sanwaartaa hoon
phir zulfon ke saaye mein
main raaten guzaartaa hoon

thhak ke saahil pe samandar so gayaa
yaad teri aa gayi
main kho gayaa
thhak ke saahil pe samandar so gayaa
yaad teri aa gayi
main kho gayaa
ye gayaa
main wo gayaa
ye mujhe
kya ho gayaa
ye gayaa
main wo gayaa
ye mujhe kya ho gayaa
naam tera leta hoon
main jisko pukaartaa hoon

Joshila is a 1973 Bollywood thriller film directed by Yash Chopra. The film stars Dev Anand, Raakhee, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Madan Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Padma Khanna, A. K. Hangal, Sulochana Latkar, Sudhir, Hercules, Master Satyajeet, I. S. Johar, Vikas Anand, Roopesh Kumar, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj and Mahendra Sandhu.

Joshila was directed by Yash Chopra, produced by Gulshan Rai for Trimurti Films, written by Akhtar ul-Iman, Akhtar Mirza, Gulshan Nanda and C. J. Pavri, cinematography by Fali Mistry, edited by Pran Mehra and was released on the 19th of October 1973. The playback was by Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Dev Anand, lyrics were by Sahir Ludhianvi and the composer was R D Burman.

The storyline (according to IMDB) is:

Jailor Manmohan Krishan is responsible for looking after convicts undergoing sentences of rigorous imprisonment. He has a young, beautiful and captive daughter named Shalini. Shalini is a poet, one day while reciting her poetry, she meets with a young man, who introduces himself as Amar, who also happens to be a poet himself. The two of them spend beautiful moments together and finds themselves attracted to each other. Shalini wants to find out why Amar is in jail. She is told in no uncertain terms that Amar is in jail for murder – for killing the brother of his former lover, Sapna. She also found out that this is not true and would strive to the best of her merit to get Amar release from jail because she is in love with him and would like to marry him.

In this song, Padma Khanna lip syncs and dances with a male counterpart (unidentified) to “Kaanp Rahi Main” in Joshila 1973 sung by Asha Bhonsle, penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Rahul Dev Burman,

There were eight songs in the movie, of which four have been covered earlier in this blog. This is the fifth song to be posted.

The film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ is an intense personal favorite, as are many of Vijay Anand’s films. This film is a very sensitive, rational and balanced view of the healthcare systems in our country, especially in the rural areas. Of course, the time frame is of 1960s (the film released in 1971). The medical profession and healthcare systems have seen unbelievable transformations, especially the brazen and vulgar commercialization of this profession, that was once considered a hallowed service of the people. But maybe more of that later.

I like this film, in all its aspects. I know when this film was released, there were many articles in magazines and newspapers, trying to find and point out technical and medical faults with the film’s many medical scenarios. It was like pointing out the defects in a mango, that one is no doubt enjoying, but still complaining that the skin of the mango is too thick or too thin. 🙂 My counter to this discussion was – please, hold on, this is a film, a dramatization of human situations. The director is trying to tell a story, about a very important profession in the society, attempting to exhibit certain ground realities, and also trying to suggest some approaches. It is not a treatise on anatomy or cardiology, that should be scientifically perfect, but does not tell a story.

In my humble opinion, all aspects of this film are very creditable – be it the storyline development, be it the dialogues and dialogue delivery, be it the performances by individual actors – no matter what is the time that character spends on the screen, be it the pace at which the tale progresses, be it the subtle and overt messages it intends to present, or be it the music and the songs – each one of them being a gem status song. I am sure the readers are familiar with the many songs of this film, and they will agree to this statement. Neeeraj, the poet, and Sachin Da (SD Burman) have collaborated to create and bring a set of such beautiful and meaningful songs. And when one tops that with Vijay Anand’s handling of the song picturization scenarios, it is like ‘सोने पे सुहागा’.

Let us take today’s song for example. This is the penultimate song of this film to be posted (and yes, we should be on the lookout for a Yippeee call for this film, very shortly 🙂 ). The story revolves around a small town, and the small hospital this town has. The senior doctor in this hospital (role played by Mahesh Kaul), who founded this hospital, is in the evening of his life. He is part paralyzed, and not fully capable to handle his duties as the Chief Medical Officer. His wife (role played by Paro), on the other hand, rules the hospital with an iron hand, and does not allow the inability of her husband to manage the setup, to be exposed to the outside world or to the regulatory authorities. Another senior doctor in the hospital is Dr Kothari (role played by Vijay Anand), who has given up his battle with the complexities of life, and is drowning himself in drink, in the anonymity of this small out of the place village. Into this scenario steps in Dr Anand (role played by Dev Anand). A recent graduate, he is fresh young mind with hallowed dreams of serving the poor people.

The situation for the song is that an elderly couple in the village (roles played by Sapru and Dulari), very hesitatingly and bashfully announce to the doctors at the hospital that they are on way to the first child in their lives. There is happiness and good news scenario, punctuated by the sad news that the child, when born, is not breathing. Dr Kothari, the gaynecologist, is drunk and out cold, not in a position to even wake up. Dr Anand saves the day, and brings the child back into the living world, by attempting to and cleaning his windpipe which was blocking the child’s breathing. It is a day of salvation and new life for this old couple. Of course, celebration has to follow.

So the family has a celebration at their home, and this song, a dance by Jaishree T, is part of that celebration. Dr Anand is present, along with other invitees from around the village. Also present is Nisha (role played by Mumtaz) a school teacher in the local school. Of course, the amorous developments have already taken place between the new young doctor and this pretty school teacher. It is a match made in heavens, as they say. OK, but the rest of the story at another time. 😉

As with everything else in this film, even this dance is such an exquisite piece of performance. As I said earlier, in the hands of a master director like Vijay Anand – it has to be so. The performance is nothing short of a full blown onslaught on the senses, that it does not leave anytime for the viewer to breathe. The pace of music is so fast. The lyrics and words are tumbling right on top of each other. Neeraj has knitted together the words that catch you trying to keep pace with understanding them while hearing the next line. Burman Da’s melody, no matter is delivered at Presto speed, and one has to be very alert to keep pace with the music, still comes out to be an exquisite song delivery.

And the performance by Jaishree T – probably the best I have seen from her. The choreographer, Hiralal, has done a real great job in conceptualizing this dance. You may watch it more than once to check – no movements are repeated, even if the lines are being repeated. The dance goes from one breathless set of movements to the next, without a respite. The three minutes and some seconds performance just leaves one breathless, trying to keep pace with the words, the melody, the dancers movements, the dancers expressions – everything so perfectly blended together into a swirl of a pleasurable whirlwind experience. Just watch when Jaishree T dances and moves to the line – ‘sheeshi hoon kewde ke paani’. Or for that matter, just pick any line, and each line is expressed through her movements so exquisitely.

The performance and the words of the song, also work to further develop, whatever it is that is developing between the young doctor and the pretty schoolteacher, for one can catch them exchanging furtive glances as the performance progresses.

A lovely song, a fantastic performance, that I for one, simply am not tired watching it again and again. View, and enjoy, this onslaught on the senses. Exquisite performance all around.

If remembering important dates is likened to batting in cricket then I must admit that I am a tailender batsman on the lines of B S Chandrashekhar, who found it easier to take wickets than score runs. In his test career, he took 242 test wickets but scored only 167 runs. 🙂

Luckily, many of our regulars are like Gavaskar, Tendulkar and Virat Kohli when it comes to remembering important dates and they always come to my rescue. Someone or other of our regulars never fails to inform tailenders like me about important dates pertaining to the blog.

Today (3 december 2017), when I woke up and checked our whatsapp group, I found a message from our earliest riser-“Many Many more happy returns of the day Khyati Ji !!”

That message from our earlier riser Satyajit Rajurkar informed me that it was the birthday of Khyati Bhatt, our latest riser 🙂 .

when I became the second to greet her followed by some others, she was immediately online to respond. Supposed to be the last one to rise among us (seeing that she is located in US), she was already awake at that time. 🙂

A little while later, I received a phone call from Peevesie’s mom, another of our strong batters in matters related to remembering dates. We need to have a song to greet her, she insisted. She told me that she has never met Khyati Ji and so she does not know anything about her. Read her introduction that Sudhir Jee wrote about her during our run up to 10kth song, I suggested. she informed me that she had already gone through that, but she could not get a clue about her musical taste, so she was at a loss about choosing a suitable song.

I tried to sound knowledgeable and informed her that Khyati ji’s husband is a big fan of Talat Mehmood,, so as an aadarsh Bhaartiya-American naari, she is bound to like what her husband likes. But I do not have a list of Talat Mehmood songs that are yet to be discussed, she informed me. Yes that indeed was a problem seeing that Talat Mehmood has sung some 450 songs in all and the blog already has 368 of them. So sending her a list of the balance 80 odd Talat Mehmood songs would be a tall order at such short notice.

Peevesie’s mom had sent me a contribution for Dev Anand, and I suggested that another Dev Anand contribution would serve the purpose. Would a “Heera Panna” song do, she enquired. Of course it would do, I opined.

Peevesie’s mom informed me that she would send just the lyrics of the song and asked me to write an article on Khyati ji. Sudhir Jee would have been just the man to write on her, but he seems to be travelling and is hence un-available, so the job of writing about the birthday girl fell upon me.

I am not as knowledgeable about Khyati Bhatt as Sudhir Jee and some of our Mumbai based regulars are, but I have talked to her on phone on quite a few occasions. I have attended a “gang out” just once, and on that one occasion, I had met her.

I consider myself a “good” observer of people, so I think my interactions with her, however limited they may be, gives me enough content to be able to write on her in a “knowledgeable” manner.

The first thing that anyone notices about Khyati Bhatt is that she is an extremely friendly soul, someone who has the knack of putting others at ease with her calming and reassuring presence. One can realise all this just by talking to her on phone. My first few interactions with her were on phone. One does not realise how time passes when one talks to someone like her. Talks with her have often lasted 15 minutes or more and we have covered lots and lots of topics during that time. I am sure if she gets talking with Peevesie’s mom or any other ladies among our group then their talks would last even longer. 🙂

When we met at the “gang out” at Mumbai on 21 december 2014, I never felt like I was meeting her for the first time. I remember that I have used the very same words while meeting with other regulars as well. 🙂 The fact that all of us HFM music lovers are like this is a great blessing. Personally I consider myself blessed to have known so many HFM lovers who in addition to being likeminded music lovers are likeminded in their nature as well. If every person is as simple, friendly, understanding and accomodating like our regulars then the world will be a much better place to live. I am happy that at least we in our small group of regulars have so many great individuals.

Did I forget to mention that Khyati Jee is the raunaq of every gathering that she attends. She was easily the raunaq and bahaar of that gangout. In fact, now I have come up with a suitable term for her. I call her our “raunaq e blog”. 🙂

Khyati Bhatt is quite an interesting person as we all know. Those who do not know may read about her in this endearing account of her penned by Sudhir Jee. Like most of our regulars, she can be likened to an iceberg. 🙂 Behind the friendly person lies an extremely well accomplished individual. “Thhodi bahut padhi likhi bhi hai“- where thhoda bahut padha likha hona means being a post graduate in mathematics.

Her elders were well connected with film people. She in fact recalls being seated adjacent to Asha Parekh and Dilip Kumar in a wedding reception in her younger days. She was so young at that time that it never occured to her to take their autographs at that time. 🙂

As a music lover, her copy of HFGK (delivered to her by Sudhir Jee) is her prized possession. She has made very good use of that venerable tome.

For instance, she went through the list of movies of 1960s and compared them with the list of movies covered in the blog. Based on that she prepared an excel sheet where names of missing movies were given. She gave the task of covering these missing movies to Sudhir Jee. That is how Sudhir Jee began his series on missing movies of 1960s. By now he has covered many missing movies of 1960s.

That excel sheet gave me the idea that I should do the same for other decades as well. So now I have a comprehensive list of all the movies of all the years (from 1931 till 1980) that are missing from the blog. This is a great help as I can immediately find which movies from which year are not yet covered in the blog. That work now gives me a quick “at a glance” idea about which movie has how many songs in it and how many songs are covered. So I quickly know which movies and which songs to look for. With so many movies and songs already covered, keeping track of them and spending time only on uncovered songs and movies is an idea (derived from her excel sheet) that is proving out to be an extremely handy way of keeping track of songs for me. So, Khyati Bhatt inadvertently helped add another dimension to the background research work of this blog.

Sudhir Jee has many more juicy details about her but he is refusing to share those details with us. 🙂 And other regulars are wondering what these details could be. Peevesie’s mom in fact states that Khyati Bhatt is a “paheli” for her. So, she has chosen this song “ek paheli hai tu” from “Heera Panna”(1973) to greet her on the occasion of her birthday.

So here is this “Heera Panna” (1973) song “Ek Paheli Hai Tu” which is sung by Kishore Kumar and hummed by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced by Dev Anand and Sheetal. Dev Anand (also also Peevesie’s mom) kept thinking throughout the song that it was Raakhi. Peevesie’s mom’s was also wondering how Raakhi agreed to do this scene. 🙂

We in this blog wish Khyati Bhatt a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. May our beloved “raunaq e blog” keep spreading sunshine in the lives of all that she meets and interacts with.

Hullo Atuldom

“Banarsi Babu” is a 1973 movie which was produced and directed by Shankar Mukherjee. The movie had Dev Anand- Rakhee- Yogita Bali in the lead with Jeevan, I.S. Johar, Manorama, Veena, Bhagwan Dada, Maruti etc in supporting cast.

It was a very simple story of twins getting separated in childhood- one is adopted by a wealthy lady (Raj Rani) and the other remains with the biological mother (Veena) in Banaras. The child with the foster mother grows up to be a wealthy businessman (Sohan) and the other a pickpocket (Mohan) who has Gulabi (Yogita Bali) as an accomplice.

On a trip to Kashmir Sohan meets the beautiful Neela (Rakhee) falls in love and marries her. He has a scheming manager Saxena (Jeevan) who sends him away on some other trip to London and replaces him with his look-a-like from Banaras in Neela’s life so that they can con her of her inheritance. Matters take a twist when Gulabi comes looking for her Mohan and bumps into Sohan.

Another twist is when escaping the clutches of Saxena’s henchmen he walks into his mother Veena’s hospital room and she calls him Mohan. Then when he returns home he finds Neela cold towards him as she has begun suspecting that he is after her wealth. All this leads to a climax where first the two brothers find each other and then they fight Saxena. Finally, two and half hours are up during which time we are also treated to some entertaining songs penned by Rajender Krishan and composed by Kalyanji- Anandji. Kishore Kumar (who else) was the voice for Dev Anand and Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle were the voices for the ladies.

On the sixth anniversary of the stylish actor producer and director Dev Anand let us remember him with a lively song from this movie. The song has Rakhee and Dev Anand as Sohan romping about on the snow-clad mountains and teasing each other. After the song it is revealed that they are in love and on a honeymoon.

A small trivia: 1973 saw Dev Anand in five movies- “Shareef Badmaash” with Hema Malini & Rakhee (already yyiippeed); “Joshila” again Rakhee and Hema Malini (not yet yyiippeed); “Heera Panna” with Rakhee and Zeenat Aman (only 2 songs posted); “Chhupa Rustam” with Hema Malini (not yet yyiippeeeed); and “Banarasi Babu” with Rakhee and Yogita Bali (only 1 song as yet that too posted in 2009). So, we se that Hema and Rakhee were his preferred heroines that year. Just a little food for thought.

Editor’s note-Though Lata and Asha Bhonsle are described as the female playback singers in the movie, the female version of this song does not sound like Lata’s (Lata is mentioned as the singer in HFGK). Perhaps she had sung the record version and the movie version had another voice ? The voice sounds more like Usha Khanna, it hardly sounds like Lata.

ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki

hey ae ae ae ae
haaye dil ki dushman jaan ki dushman
dil ki dushman jaan ki dushman
yeh bhi na samjhaaye
kyun saaye ki tarah yeh mere peechhe peechhe aaye
main ladka seedha saadha
main ladka seedha saadha
kya jaanoon iska iraada
munh se toh yeh kuchh na boley
aankhon se boley zyaada
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki

haaye deewaani se pyaar karen toh
arre deewaani se pyaar karen toh
deewaane kehlaayen
baahon mein aa jaaye toh
hum shaayad maan bhi jaayen
hai mausam mast gulaabi
tara ru ru ru ru
hai mausam mast gulaabi
dil kaise ho na sharaabi
pyaar zaraa sa kar len toh hai
iss mein kaun kharaabi

mere peeche ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peeche ek ladki

Female version (this happens when Rakhee tries to remind her husband of the good times they had experienced in Kashmir unaware that the one with her is Mohan not Sohan)

Deewaane se pyaar karoon toh
Deewaane se pyaar karoon toh
Deewaani kehlaaoon
Baahon mein aa jaaye toh
Main shaayad maan bhi jaaoon
Hai mausam mast gulaabi
La la la la la la
Hai Mausam mast gulaabi
Dil kaise ho na sharaabi
pyaar zaraa sa karloon toh hain
issme kaun kharaabi
mere peeche ek ladka
ek ladka pagla sa
awaara baadal sa
ghoom raha hain
jhoom raha hain
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peeche ek ladka
ek ladka pagla sa
awaara baadal sa
ghoom raha hai
jhoom raha hai
dil de doon isko kaise

After a fairly long break, I’m writing a post for the blog today.

There’s no particular reason for this break – it is just one of those things. I go through these periods of high-frequency posting to nil-posting every now and then.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

So, we are on that date of the year when we write a special post for a very special person. We have two posts by kids of the 70s who grew up listening to the works of this special person. For once I waited to see what these two are going to say before I pen my own thoughts. This is because I have come to realise that the three of us love the same things about this person- his multi talents- singing (first and foremost), comedy (acting), direction, music direction and he has also written a few songs. We are his fans and he was said to be a huge fan of K.L. Saigal. His aim was to sing like Saigal.
