6th October, he would have been 72. Life is such. It always, well almost, seems as if this was not the time to go. But this passage is such – no one has any say about it. One can only express emotions and reflect upon the loss. And then there are souls, people who are more close to heart than others. And the loss, the vacuum, seems to be bigger and deeper.

A person who once had declared that “. . . cricket, not films, is my first love”. At school, college and local club levels, he played a fair amount of good cricket, in the company of would be test players like Eknath Solkar and Budhi Kunderan. But then, he settled for a career in films, when he realized that he could never be a Vishwanath. [Author’s Note: These references are excerpted from an interview with Illustrated Weekly of India, in 1979.]

Born in 1946, he was not even a year old, when the family moved from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) to Bombay, when the partition happened in 1947. There was a temporary back and forth movement of the family between Bombay to Delhi (1957) and then back to Bombay (1960). Throughout his school and college days, he had a very normal progression of life, playing cricket and watching films. He aspired to be a cricketer, and also, he was enamoured by films.

As he stepped into his 20s, and completed his college education, a meeting with Sunil Dutt brought to him his break in films. Sunil Dutt was in preparation for his film ‘Mann Ka Meet’ (1968) which was intended to be a launch vehicle for Som Dutt, his younger brother`. Vinod played the a grey villain type role in this film. Some of his next few assignments followed in the same vein – supporting roles or villain’s roles – ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’, ‘Sachcha Jhootha’, ‘Mastana’ in 1970 and ‘Elaan’ and ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ in 1971.

1971 is also the kind of firming-up an take-off year for Vinod. This year came his first film as an action hero in ‘Hum, Tum Aur Woh’. Also, this year was released the much acclaimed ‘Mere Apne’, produced and directed by Gulzar. A sensitive film about coming of age youngsters and the growing angst among the new generation, Vinod was cast in a strong lead role, challenged by another equally strong role of Shatrughan Sinha, the two heading competitor street gangs in a typical city in India.

Come 1973, and Gulzar cast him in the lead role in an off-beat theme on the commercial circuit – and a surprise songless film no less from this poet and film maker. ‘Achanak’ takes on where ‘Ye Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke’ (1963) faded out ten years earlier. Loosely connected with the famous/infamous Nanavati case (1959-61) from real life, the film takes off from the point where, in real life, the jury’s verdict of not guilty (at the Session Court level) was overturned by the Bombay High Court and awarded life imprisonment to the accused. The film was critically acclaimed – and so was the lead role played by Vinod.

Quite well considered as an established actor by this time, we see him in 1974, in the role of a college lecturer in ‘Imtihan’. A string of action films continues, far too many to be listed. I will follow him through the films that I actually viewed in that decade – ‘Aarop’ and ‘Haath Ki Safai’ in 1974, ‘Shaque’ and ‘Hera Pheri’ in 1976, ‘Parvarish’ in 1977, ‘Inkaar’ and ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’ in 1978, ‘Meera’ in 1979 and ‘The Burning Train’ in 1980. I am sure you will say I missed some. Yes, surely did. Just for a special mention – the highest grossers and the most popular films of their years – ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ in 1977, ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’ in 1978 and ‘Qurbani’ in 1980. With a portfolio as the one sampled above, the career discussion is fully represented, even if we choose not to mention his films that came later.

His film career was punctuated between 1982 and 1986, when he took a self-imposed leave from his career and went to stay with Osho, or Guru Rajnish. But whatever the circumstances may have been, he returned to the industry in 1987, and just continued without a pause with his career.

Vinod Khanna passed away on 27th April last year (2017).

Remembering him on his birth anniversary, here is a lesser known, but a wonderfully performed song from the film ‘Aadha Din Aadhi Raat’ from 1977. The film is from the banner of Bharati International, Madras and is directed by Dhundi. The star cast includes Asha Parekh, Vinod Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Prem Chopra, Om Shivpuri, Jalal Agha, Jayshree T, Prem Bedi, TP Jain, Surendra Nath, Kirti Kumar, Pratima Devi, Vishu Raje, Makranee, Shobha Harman, Ranjeet, and Keshto Mukherjee etc.

The song is penned by Anand Bakshi and the music is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The scene is a party, ostensibly at the residence of Prem Chopra, in honor of a certain person / friend returning from abroad. It is apparent that Vinod Khanna is in disguise and masquerading as that friend of Prem Chopra. Shabana, who plays the role of Prem Chopra’s daughter, is offended at the wooing advances being made by this foreign returned gentleman whom she quite clearly does not fancy. The body language and the silent exchanges indicate that Prem Chopra is trying to make her stay on in the party, so possibly there is some business angle to this interaction also. And the presence of some dangerous looking characters in the party frame, indicates that the ‘business’ that Prem Chopra is pursuing is not really a good happy one.

Menewhile in the CSP (comic side plot), apparently the real ‘foreign returned’ gentleman has been kidnapped by our hero and is being held captive, with the help of his side kick – Jalal Agha.

The actual gentleman who is being forcibly kept away from the prospecting party event, is the character actor by the name TP Jain. In 1960s and 70s, TP Jain was a very active figure in the Delhi theatre circles and a very active presence in the plays on Delhi Doordarshan.

This song reminds one of “Priye Praneshwari” (‘Hum, Tum Aur Woh’, 1971), a similar disguise song, albeit a suited booted version.

Enjoy this farcical performance, and a lesser known lilting melody – “Main London Chhod Ke Aa Gaya”.

“Do Premi”(1980) was directed by Raj Khosla for Shalini Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rishi Kapoor,Mausami Chatterji, Om Prakash, I S Johar, Deven Verma, Geeta Bahl, Roopesh Kumar, Aruna Irani, K N Singh, Trilok Kapoor, Gautam Sareen, Bhagwan, C S Dubey, Nawab, Raj Kishore, Kundan, Piloo Wadia, Pal Sharma, Manmauji, Dinu Harish, Mansaram, Noor Dewasi, R R Somaiyya, Uma Khosla, Anita Khosla, Reena Khosla, Raj Bharti (new discovery) etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Do Premi”(1980) to ppear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composition is by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The usual far fetched over the top variety of song situation can be seen in the pictturisation. Rishi Kapoor and I S Johar barge into the premises of Om Prakash where he is marrying off his daughter (Mausami Chatterji) to Roopesh Kumar while Rishi Kapoor feels that he, being the hero, who had sung a duet with the lady in the past, should be the groom instead. So this song is a faux badhaai song where they pay underhand compliments to the “credentials” of the would be groom.

One can see many actors in the picturisation. Bhagwan, playing a watchman stands out among them.

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

Details of the five songs that have already been covered in the past are given below:-

Here is the sixth and final song from “Bandhe Haath”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Picturisation shos that it is a “tribal” dance song. A “tribal” dance song in Hindi consists of skimpily dressed dancers, wearing strange outfits / masks etc that are vaguely of African or Red Indian origin.

The main female dancer is a skimpily clad Mumtaz who makes sure that the movie makers save money hiring a Helen or Padma Khanna for this dance sequence. She alongwith other similarly dressed females perform this dance in the presence of a housefull auditorium.

Whenever such performances take place in a Hindi movie, one can be rest assured that baddies would be swarming the place. This song is no exception. We find a galaxy of baddies, led by Ajit, Madan Puri etc marking their attendance. They are looking for Amitabh Bachchan, who like the baddies would invariably find himself in the vicinity of such a dance performance.

SAmitab Bachchan may be hiding in the outfit of a Sheikh, but he cannot escape from Ajit’s eagle eyes, who then passes on the intelligence to his minions as well as a policeman (Ram Mohan ?). What is the standard way in which our Hindi movie heroes try to hide from the baddies ? The join the dance performance. How an uninvited dancer can join in the performance and how the back stage organisers allow this to happen is something that we will never know. And how the hero is aware of the lyrics as well as the corrrect dance steps for the dance is also something that is a mystery to all. This supposedly disguised hero then lip syncs and dances loudly and quite prominently which is their standard attempt to hide from the baddies. :).

That is not all, we find another disguised dancer (O P Ralhan ?) joining in, no doubt easily dodging the back stage managers to the performance, and he too starts to sing and dance loudly. In his part of the song and dance, he “discreetly” passes on the information that baddies are in hot pursuit of him.

It all sounds quite silly really, but we are so used to such dance performances that we do not bat out eyelids. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the people who are visible in the picturisation of this song.

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

‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ (1971) is different from the serial ‘Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ which came a long time after the movie. The movie was an all-round entertainer. We would not get anything less in a movie where Om Prakash heads the cast and the hero (Sanjay Khan in this case) plays a second fiddle to Om Prakash and Jagdeep. Plus, when the mirch-masalas Lalita Pawar and Shashikala spice up the whole setup, it is but natural that the lead cast (Sanjay Khan and Leena Chandavarkar) become secondary – their presence being needed for the romantic interludes.

I must confess I was unaware of this movie till a few years back – till 2014 to be exact. I chanced upon it on one of the umpteen satellite channels. The title made me sit through what turned out to be an enjoyable family- entertainer (as they used to be called back then) which didn’t make you start crying halfway through. A family-entertainer essentially was one which one could see with the entire family and the viewer will be preached about how to maintain family relationships and a few ladies in the audience will be seen crying into their hankies. This movie was not like that.

So, coming to today’s song we have Om Prakash playing a Sadhu Baba and Sanjay and Jagdeep are his chelaas (I think it means students) with Sunder playing an assistant. In the movie Sanjay is Om Prakash’s son, Sunder – his servant and Jagdeep is Sanjay’s saala (brother-in-law). The song has Shashikala and Lalitha Pawar as ladies who have come with queries to the “antaryaami baba”. Through the song we get a gist of the movie. The song is in the voice of Manna Dey written by Rajendra Krishan, with music composed by RD Burman.

One song from this movie was discussed in 2016 by our Avinashji. On the occasion of Om Prakash’s passing away anniversary today; we shall see him the way he was largely-loved by the public. It is 20 years since he passed away.

In those days we used to live in Chembur, Bombay (not yet Mumbai then) and both Om Prakash and Ashok Kumar lived not very far from where we were. Those were the days when it was still cable TV and not satellite TV. And what did the cable operator providing service to our apartment do, he just stopped service for the day and put up a notice on black card— to enable the public in the area to attend the funeral of our beloved “jija ji” (as Om Prakash’s character was in “’Chupke Chupke”) we are suspending our service for a day. That was how much he was loved.

We can remember so many of his memorable characters – starting from ‘Guddi’ (1971) (that is where I noticed him first) to all his characters in Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies, to ‘Ghar Ho To Aisa’ (1990) (that is the last time I saw him in a movie). Of course, his career spanned 42 years and starting from movies made in Lahore in 1942 to “Ghar Ki Izzat” in 1994 he was a co star to every actor – big or small- and gave his best no matter the size of the role as in ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ (1970).

Thinking of Jija ji today on his anniversary

dhanya hai saadho
ye devi bhi
chidiya jaisi bholi bhali
rang birange pankh hai iske
chonch magar hai kaali kaali
apni boodhi saas ko is ne
ghar se maar bhagaaya
jab ye saas bani to is ko
bahu ne mazaa chakhaya
ho bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam
phir se
bam bam leharey bam bam

hey..ey
suno re saadho ye sansaaram
ultam paltam ho gaya
kahaan ki bhakti
pooja paatham
thokam thaakam ho gaya
ho bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam
bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam

bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam

बाबा-लीका

हे॰॰ए
सुनो रे साधो ये संसारम्
उल्टम पल्टम हो गया
कहाँ की भक्ति
पूजा पाठम
ठोकम ठाकम हो गया
बम बम लहरे बम बम
बम बम लहरे बम बम
सुनो रे साधो ये संसारम्
उल्टम पल्टम हो गया
कहाँ की भक्ति
पूजा पाठम
ठोकम ठाकम हो गया
बम बम लहरे बम बम
बम बम लहरे बम बम

देखो रे देखो
देखो रे साधो
कलयुग की नारी का नमूना
अपनी ही संतान को इसने
कस के लगाया कैसा चूना
अपनी बहू को बेटे से अपने
सौ गज दूर सुलाया
प्रभु कृपा से
फिर भी इसने
चाँद सा पोता पाया
बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम
फिर से
बम बम लहरे बम बम

धन्य है साधो
ये देवी भी
चिड़िया जैसी भोली भाली
रंग बिरंगे पंख हैं इसके
चोंच मगर है काली काली
अपनी बूढ़ी सास को इसने
घर से मार भगाया
जब ये सास बनी तो इसको
बहू ने मज़ा चखाया
हो बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम
फिर से
बम बम लहरे बम बम

हे॰॰ए
सुनो रे साधो ये संसारम्
उल्टम पल्टम हो गया
कहाँ की भक्ति
पूजा पाठम
ठोकम ठाकम हो गया
हो बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम
बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम

बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम

Missing Films of 1960s – 42
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

IS Johar had a lead of three years over Raj Kapoor. His film ‘Mera Naam Johar’, released in 1967, preceded the great showman’s masterpiece ‘Mera Naam Joker’ which came in 1970. It is a matter of conjecture now, as to who inspired whom. 🙂

So this film is the debut film for today. IS Johar was going very strong, and travelling to many destinations  in the 1960s. In 1965 we saw him in ‘Goa’ with Memood. In 1966, he travelled to ‘Kashmir’. Then in 1967, along with the proclamation that his name is ‘Johar’, he also appeared in ‘Bombay’. His next trip was somewhat delayed, considered that he travelled overseas to ‘Hong Kong’ in 1971, once again in Mehmood’s company.

The film is produced under the banner of Sudershan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Saran Kant. Besides himself in lead role, other members of the cast include Sonia Sahni, Dhoomal, Aruna Irani, Raj Mehra and Tiwari amongst others. The film has 6 songs listed. Music is from the mind of Usha Khanna. Two songwriters are listed – Asad Bhopali and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, only three of the songs have a specific lyricist identified. For this song, the lyricist name has not been identified. This song is written by Qamar Sb. (This information is actually available in the addenda to the volume IV of Geet Kosh, which I missed referring to earlier.)

The song is delivered in a very comical situation. And the songwriter has written some very catchy lines to match the situation. Apparently it seems that IS Johar and Sonia Sahni have to make a getaway from the clutches of the villain’s gangsters, who are blocking the roads even, and screening the people coming and going. And the way out found by the hero is something that can happen only in IS Johar films. They form a funeral procession, and they have Sonia Sahni acting like a dead body, being carried in the traditional funerary ‘takht’ on the shoulders of a group of people. IS Johar, with his head tonsured and wearing only a dhoti, seems to be the epitome of the prime mourner, carrying the traditional fire in a ‘matka’.

He leads the singing, with this song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. The group of people accompanying him includes people who are playing the ‘dholak’ and ‘khartaal’ etc. The procession meets the villain’s henchmen in a sort of a road block. And IS Johar is singing and telling the entire real story – that the dead body is  actually ‘zinda’ (alive), and that they are making good an escape with no one the wiser.

The play acting is so convincing that the henchmen who are leading this group of baddies, actually come forward and shoulder the funerary carriage for some distance, even singing along with the group. A most hilarious situation contrived by the director, and so brazenly and blatantly executed by IS Johar and company. IS Johar looks so convincing in his role as a fake mourner, and as he sings along the lines in which he is indicating the truth of the situation, only if someone would listen ‘between the words’. . . – “Jaane Waala Chala Hai Dekho Rok Sakey Na Koi” 🙂

See, listen and enjoy.

Chorus

Lyrics

ram naam satya hai

jo chaahe wo kar sakta hai

log jinhen bejaan samajhte
hotey hain wo zinda
bolo
ram naam satya hai
gopal naam satya hai
ram naam satya hai

insaanon ke bas mein kya hai
kaahe akde banda

baat ram ki ram hi jaane
honi thi so hoi
baat ram ki ram hi jaane

I was under the impression that “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965) was YIPPEED with the last song that was discussed in the blog. Now it turns out that I had incorrectly assumed that song as a multiple version song and that a song from the movie was actually left to be discussed.

So here is this missing song from “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965). This song is sung by Kamal Barot, Shamsdhad Begam and chorus. Akhtar Romani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

hullo Atulwaasis

Welcome to the 97th birthday party of Gubbaare Waale Baba. He was a master of carrying any disguise, get-up or make up. Can one forget the red-wigged Sher Khan? Or Malang chacha. Or Raka. or Gajendra Singh or Halaaku. He had his own style of blowing smoke rings which first appeared in Bari-Behan (1949). He was sinister to the extent that people would not name their new borns – Pran. His name always appeared in the movie credits as “And Pran”.

A few days ago when it was Lata Mangeshkar’s birth anniversary on 28 september 2016, I posted a Lata writeup, where I mentioned that we have been discussing a Lata song almost on a daily basis right from the beginning of this blog 8 years ago. I knew that we had more than 3070 Lata songs in the blog. I became curious to find out the number of days for which this blog is active. At first I decided to do the calculation manually, but then decided that I should let technology do the hard work for me. So, after some trial and error, I got just the excel formula that I needed. It was then that I realised that the blog was 2994 days old at that time. I mentioned this fact in the blog. I also realised that we were very close to 3000 days mark. So I contacted a few regulars of the blog and requested them for their special writeups on the occasion.
