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

Song – Suno Re Saadho Ye Sansaaram Ultam Paltam Ho Gaya (Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi) (1970) Singer – Manna Dey, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – RD Burman

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.

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.

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.

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Today, 29th September happens to be the 84th birth anniversary of Mehmood Ali commonly known as Mehmood. In a career spanning four decades he acted in around 300 films. I am not sure how many songs in these 300 films where picturised on him and how many Mehmood songs our blog has! We don’t have a separate category of songs on Mehmood, like we have for Johnny Walker. The songs of these two actors were always very special. But I am sure there will be enough songs to take us through a life time if we stick to posting one song on his birth anniversary and one on the anniversary of his passing away. Of course there is nobody to stop us from breaking this rule and sneaking in a few extras, right?
[Editor Note: Request is noted for a category of Mehmood songs. 🙂 ]

One of the more easily recognizable figures on the Hindi film screen. There are two hallmark identifications, with which we can easily pick out Asit Sen (the actor). The first one is his size. It is remarkable that he maintained his figure through the entirety of his career. One can see him in his earliest appearances in films like ‘Do Bigha Zameen’, playing the role of a seller of sweets and savories, and then also see him in films after three decades – ‘Mera Karam Mera Dharam’ (1987), playing the role of school headmaster. There is no change in his physique. For the number of years one sees him on screen in the same physical dimensions, the thought almost comes into the mind – maybe this is how he was born. 🙂
