Wonder pe Thunder !

Today’s song is from film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (1971). When I found that this very popular and famous song of the early 70s was yet to be covered in the blog, my first reaction was to disbelieve it. I was almost sure that there was some mistake. I scanned the entire ‘H’ alphabet film list, bur could not see this song under any heading. Then I checked the year wise and MD wise lists – with same result. I was wondering how this song has escaped from the keen eyes of our contributors, who are specialists in the songs of the 70s ! At the end of it, I even checked with Atul ji, who confirmed that the song, indeed, was yet to be covered by us. This was a bonanza for me.

This is one of the songs of RD Burman, which I liked very much. Comparatively, he was one of the new composers in those times – in my opinion – though he had already done about 40 films before ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (HRHK). In last few years I had liked few songs from his earlier films like ‘Parichay’ (1972), ‘Seeta aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Caravan’ (1971), ‘Kati Patang’ (1970) and ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966). However, he suffered in my hands, due to my biased view of film songs of the period of 70s and beyond and except few more songs of RD Burman, I never liked his music, which in general I felt, was too loud and mostly copied from other sources (see several U-Tube videos on this issue, as a proof). However, I concede that he was a worthy son of a worthy composer compared to some other composer-son composers and that his music was much better than theirs and that he lasted for a longer period, cut short only by his sudden death in 1994, at the age of 55 years.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle and chorus and its video shows that it was sung on screen by a Hippie Girl (Zeenat Aman) amidst a smoking Hippie crowd. Somewhere in the year 1966, I had visited Goa (Panaji) to participate in a conference. During my visit, we had 2 free days and we roamed around the beautiful beaches of Goa. Goa had been liberated from the Portuguese about 6 years back and the Indian tourists did not have enough time yet to spoil the beaches and cities of Goa. So we could really enjoy our trip. During our beach visits we saw many Hippie groups, behaving in a ‘who cares’ attitude on the beaches. No wonder, many of my colleagues took their photographs to show in their respective private circles. That was a time when the Hippie culture had spread around the world.

Hippie (also spelled hippy) people were members of a counter cultural movement during the 1960s and 1970s, that rejected the mores of mainstream American life. The movement originated on college campuses in the United States, and also spread to other countries. Hippies felt alienated from middle-class society, which they saw as dominated by materialism and repression, and they developed their own distinctive lifestyle. They favoured long hair and casual, often unconventional, attire, sometimes in ‘psychedelic’ colours.

Many males grew beards, and both men and women wore sandals and beads. Long flowing granny dresses were popular with women, and rimless granny glasses with both men and women. Hippies commonly took up communal or cooperative living arrangements, and they often adopted vegetarian diets based on unprocessed foods and practiced holistic medicine. Hippies tended to be dropouts from society, foregoing regular jobs and careers, although some developed small businesses that catered to other hippies.

Hippies advocated non-violence and love, a popular phrase being “Make love, not war,” for which they were sometimes called ‘flower children’. They promoted openness and tolerance as alternatives to the restrictions and regimentation they saw in the middle-class society. Hippies often practiced open sexual relationships and lived in various types of family groups. They commonly sought spiritual guidance from sources outside the Judeo-Christian tradition, particularly Buddhism and other Eastern religions. Hippies promoted the recreational use of hallucinogenic drugs, particularly marijuana and LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), in so-called head trips, justifying the practice as a way of expanding consciousness.

By the mid-1970s the movement had waned, and by the 1980s hippies had given way to a new generation of young people who were intent on making careers for themselves in business and who came to be known as yuppies (young urban professionals). Nonetheless, hippies continued to have an influence on the wider culture, seen, for example, in more relaxed attitudes toward sex, in the new concern for the environment, and in a widespread lessening of formality.

Film HRHK was Dev Anand’s idea. Initially, he wanted Zahida to become its Heroine. She, however rejected the offer when she learnt that in the film, she would be Dev’s sister – Jasbir. Dev Anand also wanted SD Burman to do the music. When Dada heard the original story, in which Zeenat falls in love with Dev, not knowing that he was her brother, Dada flatly refused the film and also advised Dev to change the story, as Indian public would be averse to an incest story. Eventually RD Burman was selected as MD.

Similarly, this song – “Dum Maaro Dum” was originally to be a duet of Usha Uthup and Lata Mangeshkar. Possibly Asha Bhosle, who was on the verge of leaving OPN and joining RD Burman (who had applied for a divorce with Rita –  his wife) scuttled the plan and the song came to Asha as a solo and another duet with usha Uthup. RD burman then changed the whole tune of the song, using Asha’s skill of singing in higher pitches.

All songs of this film became popular, especially “Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka Sabka Kehna Hai” and “Dum Maaro Dum” were heard everywhere. The lyrics of the song “Dum Maaro Dum” were very apt to indicate and describe the philosophy and frustration of the younger generation in that period –

duniya ne hum ko diya kya
duniya se hum ne liya kya
hum sab ki parvah karen kyun
sabne hamara kiya kya

All this clearly indicated what was eating the minds of young people.

Fortunately, 70s was the period when the Hippie culture was on decline worldwide. As such, this type of philosophy and such cult did not fit into the Indian mind set in any case. Therefore, this culture did not grow much here and had a natural end – like everywhere else in the world.

Two interesting anecdotes about this film. One, Dev Anand in his autobiography -“Romancing With Life “, published in 2007, had confessed that during this film, he had fallen in love with Zeenat. He was to make a confession to her, when he learnt that she had gone very close to Raj Kapoor. In one party, he also saw Raj kapoor hugging Zeenat and she was responding to him. Dev was disillusioned. He knew that Zeenat was keen to work in RK’s film ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’, and that all this was due to that only. He simply removed her thought from his mind.

Second is about the Burmans. In the program ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’, Pancham narrated that – “Papa used to go for morning walk everyday in Juhu. People recognised him and would say, look, SD Burman is going. One day he came back very excited. He told me, today people recognised me and said, Look RD Burman’s father is going. Papa was proud of me that my music in HRHK was famous and popular.”

Nandu Chawathe- a leading fiddler and violinist was associated with Pancham in those days. This person – Nandu Chawathe, was a guest in one of our get togethers of Atulites in Mumbai, thanks to one of our members Nitin ji Shah. He had played some songs on his violin in that meeting,  Chawathe says that Dev Anand was very much upset, when Asha replaced Lata and Pancham took time to compose the new tune for Asha Bhosle. The final product, however, pleased Dev Anand.

The story of the film, as given in wiki, is –

In the background of the rise of the International Hare Krishna movement in the 1970s, is a Montreal-based family of the Jaiswals, consisting of mom, dad, son, Prashant, and daughter, Jasbir. Due to differences, Mr and Mrs Jaiswal separate, leaving Jasbir with dad, and Prashant with his mom. Eventually Prashant and his mom travel to India, leaving father and daughter behind in Montreal. Mr. Jaiswal remarries, and brings his new wife to live in his home. Jasbir is told by her nanny that her mother & brother are dead. Back in India Prashant is sent to a boarding school and his father makes sure that none of Prashant’s letters reach Jasbir, so that it would be easy on her part to get over emotional trauma. Jasbir is upset with her inconsiderate step-mother and ignorant father who is deeply immersed in his business.

Years later, Prashant has grown up to be a pilot. He has received a letter from his dad that Jasbir, who had rebelled and left home, is now located in Kathmandu, Nepal, with a group of hippies. Prashant decides to find his sister and hopefully get her back to the family. When Prashant lands in Kathmandu he does not find Jasbir, but instead finds Janice, who is indeed his sister with a new name. Janice has no recollection of her childhood, and is always in the company of hippies spending most of her time consuming alcohol & drugs with them.

Janice lives with the hippies in the property rented out by local landlord Drona. Drona’s real business is stealing ancient artifacts from Kathmandu and selling it to foreign nationals. Michael, one of the hippies, is the one who does all the dirty work for him. Janice’s boyfriend Deepak misunderstands that Prashant is trying to woo Janice, hence they exchange a few blows every time they meet. Meanwhile, Drona has an eye on Shanti, a local salesgirl working in one of the shops owned by him. Shanti has feelings for Prashant which creates one more enemy for him. Later Prashant and Shanti elope and get married. At the same time a precious idol is stolen from local temple by Michael, which he hides in Janice’s house. Prashant secretly observes all this. Drona tries to frame Shanti for theft by secretly planting another stolen artifact in her house. Later he spreads the word that since the day Prashant has arrived idols are being stolen and he is stalking local girls.

The police commissioner is a friend of Prashant’s father, and has already received a letter stating the purpose of Prashant’s visit to Kathmandu. He suspects that Drona is trying to frame Prashant because he has married Shanti. He gets a search warrant for the entire property of Drona and recovers a diary which has contact details of his friends abroad who help him sell the stolen artifacts. The police also recover the stolen artifact from Shanti’s home, squarely blaming Prashant for it. Shanti is deeply hurt by this and looks around for Prashant. Prashant meanwhile is with Janice, trying to convince her that he is her brother, who she had been told dead long back. Michael overhears the conversation & conspires to put the blame on the brother-sister duo. Taking advantage of the situation Drona and Michael instigate the locals against Prashant by framing him for the theft and duping Shanti under pretext of marriage. The hippies and the locals are now ready to bash Prashant the moment they come across him.

When Prashant again tries to meet Janice, the hippies give him a solid thrashing. The police commissioner intervenes and Prashant is saved. At the same time the true face of Drona is uncovered and he meets his end trying to run away from police. Janice sees that both her parents have arrived to meet her and realizes that Prashant is indeed her brother. Janice is deeply hurt that her parents had to see her in this state. She runs away from them and commits suicide. In her suicide note she tells Prashant how deeply she loved him and she never intended him to find her in this state and suicide was the only way out for her.

‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (released on 9-12-1971) was a Landmark film for Navketan – a film production company, which could boast of a world record (yet unbeaten) that the company was run for 62 years by the same person who established it in 1949 ! The cult song “Dum Maaro Dum” became so popular that no function was complete without this song for the next 10 years! Enjoy this song here today…..

Today’s song is truly a rare song. It is from a film called Romantic India-1936. It was a C grade costume film, directed by veteran Mohan Sinha. Looking at the film’s cast of Jeevan, Shyamsunder, Noorjehan, Radharani, Pt. Badri pershad, Gulab etc etc., it is confirmed that it was one of those C grade films which had its own audience in almost every village, town and city in India.

During the 20s, 30s and the 40s decades, films catered to all types of movie goers. Various Genres were used like Mythological, Religious, Stunt, Adventure, Folk tales, Historical, Social, Mystery, Family, Drama, Fantasy, Costume, Comedy, Tragedy and every other conceivable Genre possible. These films catered to all age groups as well as all social divisions like the poor, middle class and the rich. The daily earners, workers and lower strata of the society were avid viewers of stunt films.

When I started seeing stunt films, the first choice was of course films of Fearless Nadia. However, by that time most of her films were unavailable and I could see only a few of them. Stunt films of Shankar rao Vazre, Master Bhagwan, Chandrarao Kadam, Kamran, Dalpat, Navin Yagnik, John Cavas, Boman Shroff, Billimorea brothers, Prakash, khaleel, Master Vithal, Baburao pehelwan etc were lapped up by me and my like minded friends. Most of these films were seen at the cost of attending school.

These stunt films had not only their own fixed audience, but also these films were shown in particular theatres of the towns. usually, these were situated in poor areas and the owners never believed in its maintenance. Perhaps, even the audience was uncomfortable in well maintained, soft cushioned, airy and clean theatres ! Like the audience and the theatres, the cast of stunt films, the directors and the producers were fixed and usual. The Music Directors had not much work, since the audience considered songs as a hindrance to the film story. Rarely commercial records of stunt film songs were made. Master Bhagwan once revealed that a stunt film was made completely in Rs. 50,000 easily, all expenses included ! Therefore, these films used to give good profits to the producers and investors.

Collecting information on actors working in such films was and is a tough task. In general, collecting details of any actor of yesteryear is very challenging. When I started writing on old films and its artistes, I realised that doing research on old time cine artistes is a very tedious task. The kind of sources one has to tap is simply unimaginable. If you happen to meet a close relative or a family member, who has the knowledge about the old timer, then you are lucky. This was precisely what happened in case of Bhudo Advani ( his son), Parshuram (his daughter), Mirza Musharraf ( his daughter/son in law ), Indurani (her son), Latika ( her daughter), Vasant kumar Naidu ( his Nephew) and Shankar rao Vazre( his grandson) who met/contacted me and I could get enough Bio data on them. But this is by and large by pure Luck only. Otherwise hard work in such searches is the only way and one does not know how much time it will take and what will be the final outcome.
A case in point is that of yesteryear Heroine Mrudula. I came to know some information and the address of Mrudula, by chance, and I was very happy. Mrudula was the First Heroine of Dilip Kumar in his Debut film Jwar Bhata-1944. She was staying in a building near Arey Dairy in Worli, Bombay. I immediately contacted Shishir krishna Sharma ji, who is an expert in interviewing such old timers and gave him the information. At the first opportunity, he went to that address. Unfortunately, she had left that place and with great difficulty, he got her current address. He reached that building- Samudra Mahal in Worli. However, to his dismay, the watchman at the gate did not allow him to enter, despite explaining to him. He was not even allowed to talk to her on intercom. The matter ended there only. Now we know where she lives, since 2 years but cant contact her. She is already above 90 years of age. Such are the unseen difficulties in meeting the surviving old artistes.

Similarly, when I started work on different Radharani named actresses, initially I thought that there were 3 Radha Ranis. Sadanand ji Kamath helped me by providing some clues and I reworked on the whole matter, finally arriving at the correct information. This is really hard work.

In case of Radha Rani, most important point is, there are only Two of them and NOT three as believed earlier. One was operating only in Calcutta and the other was from Bombay. Here are the details. Here, I am making it a concise version to avoid too long an article. Since the Radha Rani who worked in film Romantic India-1936 was from Bombay, here is only her information.

RADHA RANI (BOMBAYWALI) –

She was the daughter of a Military Officer. Born at Quetta, Baluchistan, in or around 1920-21, she had a British father and Indian mother. She had total Indian looks. Her initial education and schooling was done in Bombay. She became an expert in Horse Riding, swimming, cycling, driving and skating. She was very beautiful and attractive. At the age 15, she looked quite grown up with distinct features. While in school final itself, she got offers from films. Her first film was Romantic India-36. Being an expert singer, she started singing in films. Next she acted in Badhe Chalo-37.

She was called to Calcutta to act in film ‘ Swaraj ke Sipahi ‘-37. From Calcutta, she went to Madras to do a role in a Telugu film ‘ Bhakta Jaidev ‘-38. Returning to Bombay, Radha Rani acted in Sunehra Baal-38 and then joined Wadia movietone. Here she did 7 stunt/action films.

After this she became a freelancer and acted in 18 more films of different banners. She also acted in Punjabi film ‘ Kurmai’-41. Her achievements in films were amazing. Stepping directly from school classroom onto the Silver screen, in her first 5 years of career itself, she had bagged 15 feature films. This was mainly due to to her striking screen beauty, linguistic dexterity and histrionic versatility. She was a consummate actress, singer and dancer. She was very fond of reading English literature and would spend time reading books during shooting breaks.

She made a good pair with actor Zahoor Raja in 8 films. She acted in 3 films of his production company and in film Badal-42, he directed her. her last film was Rasilee-46. After this film she got married and went to England.

Filmography- Romantic India-36, Badhe Chalo-37, Swaraj ke sipahi-37, Bhakta Jaydev-38(Telugu), Sunehra Baal-38, kahan hai manzil teri-39, Hind ka lal-40, Diamond queen-40, Jai swadesh-40, Bambaiwali-41, Manthan-41, Safed sawar-41, Seedha Rasta-41, Darpan-41, Kurmai-41(Punjabi), Swami-41, Badal-42, Motorwali-42, Sewa-42, Suhagan-42, Jungle Princess-42, Mazaq-43, Mr.Jhatpat-43, Paraya Dhan-43, Sawal-43, Bhai-43, O Panchhi-44, Ghazal-45, Laaj-46 and Rasilee-46.

By a sheer coincidence, there was another ‘Same Name Confusion’ artiste in this film- Noorjehan. This was Noorjehan Sr. Her career spanned from the silent era to 1953. To add to the confusion, she also sang few songs. A part of her career clashed with the more famous singer actress Malika-E-Tarannum, Noorjehan. This created confusion in the minds of those interested in the history of Hindi films. After a study of long time spent in gathering information about the Senior Noorjehan, we are now able to distinguish between the two artistes. For our readers, here is information on the senior Noorjehan, who had worked in film Romantic India-36.

Noorjehan-Sr.’s real name was Zebunnisa,but since there were already many Zebs in the film line,she took the name of Noorjehan. She was from a Tawayaf family of Lahore. She started with Silent film Gulnar-1930,then came All for love,chandramani,Hind ke tare,Shaliwahan etc. After doing about 10 silent films,she first appeared in a Talkie Mirza Sahibaan-1933. (The silent films were produced till sept.1934).

She was actually not a professional singer,but in those days it was compulsory for the Lady actors to sing songs also,since playback had not started. That is the reason she sang also. She did about 57 Talkie films like patit pawan,Kala wagh,Kismet ki kasauti,Vaaman avtaar,Delhi Express,Jaane aalam,karvaan e husn,Rangeela Nawab,Sati toral, Stree dharma,Romantic India,Shaahu chor,tope ka Gola,Adarsh mahila etc. After 1937,she did not get major roles and songs also diminished. Her last film was Anarkali-53.
The confusion causing films of Noorjehan Sr. are…. 1941- Radhika- sang 2 songs, Sasural- 3 songs, Ummeed-1 song. She also worked in Sikander and Red signal.
1942- Dhiraj- sang 1 song. Also acted in Chandni
1943- Adab Arz-sang 1 song. Also acted in Vish kanya
1944-No film
1945-Ghazal
1946-Jadugar, Eight days, Gwalan, Maharana Pratap, Sofia, Talwarwala
1947- Aabida, Do Bhai, Meerabai.
After retirement from films, she lived in Bombay, Dadar area. She knew Driving, so she became a Lady Driver instructor in a Driving School, to sustain for some time. Thereafter no information on her.

Coming back to today’s film Romantic India-36, it was directed by Mohan Sinha . He was born on 2-12-1903 at Indore. He studied upto matriculation in Indore. His uncle was General Bhavnani Singh, who was in the Indore state army. With his help, Mohan got in state army as a Lieutenant. However, he did not continue for long and left the army. In 1933, he started a film company at Indore-Navyug films. But due to lack of opportunities in Indore, it was closed soon.

Mohan came to Bombay, floated Krishna Films and made and directed a film ” Fashionable India”-35. It was a hit film and he got offers from Rajputana films,General FPictures, Circo and National. He worked with all of them. Sinha went to Calcutta and started Murli pictures. he made ” Swaraj ke sipahi”-37, which was a flop. he came back to Bombay and directed Industrial India-38, for General films. Then came Swastik-39, Laxmi-40,Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41. He floated Murari Pictures in 1942 and made badlati Duniya-43 and krishnarjuna yudha-45 ( This film was appreciated by Dr. Rajendra prasad, Dr. Shamaprasad Mukherji, Veer Savarkar and Acharya kriplani also). One interesting fact about Mohan Sinha was that he directed 3 films describing India of those days, namely Fashionable India-35, Romantic india-36 and Industrial India-38.

In 1946, Mohan Sinha directed K L Saigal in Omar khayyam and Surendra in 1857, Raj kapoor in Dil ki Rani-47 and Dev Anand in Jeet-49. Mohan Sinha directed in all 32 films. He wrote lyrics for 62 songs in 7 films. His last film was Shaan E Hind-60. He died in 1984. Mohan Sinha’s granddaughter Vidya Sinha was an actress.

Today’s song is sung by Noorjehan Sr. In the song there is a long talk by a male person. It seems, the singer is trying to motivate that person not to lose hopes and stop drinking.

Here is the ninth and final song from “Shaarda”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is picturised as a drunkard song on Raj Kapoor. Those who have seen Mukesh sing a drunkard song in “Jaagte Raho” (1959),could well expect Mukesh to sing this song, but this song is sung by Manna Dey ! Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ranmchandra.

The song situation in this song is rather more sombre than what was the case in “Jaagte Raho” (1959), as far as I can tell. IT is a rather lesser known drunkard song, but it can for that reason, may be regarded as a forgotten gem.

With this song, “Shaarda”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya (Shaarda)(1957) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya
khoob kiya
arey khoob kiya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
khoob kiya arrey ae khoob kiya

wo ghadiyaan khawaab ki ghadiyaan thhin een een
mai jin ghadiyo mein jaaga tha
duniya ki khushi ek saaya thhi
duniya ki khushi ek saaya thhi
main jiski lagan mein bhaaga thha
main jiski lagan mein bhaaga thha
paanvon ko jo mere tod diya
khoob kiya
arrey khoob kiya
botal ki taraf munh mod diya
khoob kiya
arrey ae khoob kiya

jab mujhse zamaana door hua aa aa aa aa
jab mujhse zamaana door hua
botal ne kaha
bataaun kya kaha
nahin bataata
achcha bataata hoon
har dard ke mare ko ek din
to padti hai zaroorat to meri
padti hai zaroorat to meri
toote huye dil ko jod diya
khoob kiya
arrey khoob kiya
duniya ne to mujhko chhod diya
khoob kiya
arrey ae khoob kiya

“Prem Pratigya”(1989) was produced by B Lognathan and directed by Bapu. This movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Madhuri Dixit, Vinod Mehra, Deven Verma, Satish Kaushik, Aruna Irani, Ranjeet, Neelu Phule, Kamal Deep, Jamuna, Farida Dadi, Darshan, Manmouji, Subhash, Sayeeda Khan, Jahangir, Renu Joshi etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

The song is a party song where the hero is suipposed to steal the show. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The lyrics are nice and the music is wonderful. This song had the potential to be as memorable as the Kishore Kumar songs of “Namak Halaal” and “Sharaabi” songs of same genre. But then those songs were picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and this song under discussion is lip synced by Mithun Chakraborty. Chalk and cheese ! People less discerning than me in such matters may disagree. Nevertheless, it is my opinion that the great singing by Kishore Kumar, assisted by great lyrics and music, got wasted in this case.

I am unable to identify the female dancer seen in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

With this song, “Prem Pratigya”(1989) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Sheeshe ki umar pyaale ki aakhir bisaat kya(Prem Pratigya)(1989) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Today 27th June (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994) is the 79th birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman, whom we fondly remember as ‘Pancham’.

On this occasion here is a song from the 1985 Movie ‘Sitamgar’. Th film was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal. It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj, Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie. V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza. The movie was passed by the Censor Board on 08.03.1985.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by RD Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

As the movie makes its debut on the blog today I can select only one song for today’s presentation. Going by the songs of this movie that I have already heard, I can say that some of them are very nice songs.

In 1985 the following movie with music composed by RD Burman were released,

  1. Rahi Badal Gaye
  2. Ram Tere Kitne Naam
  3. Hum Dono
  4. Ek Se Bhale Do
  5. Lava
  6. Zabardast
  7. Sitamgar
  8. Saagar
  9. Alag Alag
  10. Oonche Log
  11. Aawara Baap
  12. Arjun
  13. Hum Naujawan
  14. Shiva Kea Insaaf

From the above list one can easily understand that he was still there composing good music whereas it is said that he was passing through a lean phase and was overshadowed by other music directors during those years in the 1980s. Well, that is the subject for another post and so I am limiting my write-up for this presentation here only.

This movie also falls under one of my objective of ‘movie having the same title’. So far on the blog we have ‘Sitamgar’ from 1958 already launched earlier. As mentioned in HFGK Vol VI movie with same title was also released in 1934 & 1954, making it four times so where movies with same titles have been released. With today’s song, the film ‘Sitamgar’ of 1985 makes a debut on our blog.

Remembering Pancham Da today and his music let us move to the today’ song now. . .

 

Song – Hum Kitne Nadaan The Yaaro (Sitamgar) (1985) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana
sach hai agar to ek mohabbat
jhooth hai baaki saara fasaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

pad gaye jaise in aankhon pe
zulm ke nafrat ke parde
pad gaye jaise in aankhon pe
zulm ke nafrat ke parde
zindagi tera mujrim hoon main
ho sake to o maaf kar de
andhi raah ke andhe safar mein
beet gaya jeene ka zamaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

ab ye mohabbat ka
ehsaan hai
ye jo thhodi jaan hai mujhme
ab ye mohabbat ka
ehsaan hai
ye jo thhodi jaan hai mujhme
aap hi main jiska qaatil hoon
zindaa wo insaan hain mujhme
ham kitne naadaan thhe yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana
sach hai agar to ek mohabbat
jhooth hai baaki saara fasaana
ham kitne naadaan the yaaron
aaj ye samjhe
aaj ye jaana

हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना
सच है अगर तो एक मोहब्बत
झूठ है बाकी सारा फ़साना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

पड़ गए जैसे इन आँखों पे
ज़ुल्म के नफरत के परदे
पड़ गए जैसे इन आँखों पे
ज़ुल्म के नफरत के परदे
ज़िन्दगी तेरा मुजरिम हूँ मैं
हो सके तो ओ माफ़ कर दे
अंधी राह के अंधे सफ़र में
बीत गया जीने का ज़माना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना

अब ये मोहब्बत का
एहसान है
ये जो थोड़ी जान है मुझमे
अब ये मोहब्बत का
एहसान है
ये जो थोड़ी जान है मुझमे
आप ही मैं जिसका कातिल हूँ
ज़िंदा वो इंसान हैं मुझमे
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे
आज ये जाना
सच है अगर तो एक मोहब्बत
झूठ है बाकी सारा फ़साना
हम कितने नादान थे यारों
आज ये समझे …
आज ये जाना …

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a Peevesie discovery. I don’t remember when exactly, but definitely a few years back she mentioned about this song to me. And it looks like she has seen and enjoyed the video too and it has stayed in her memory. She remembered exactly how the song starts. And the dance steps of Govinda and Madhuri. Awesome combination. Just like in the previous Madhuri Dixit song where with Prabhu Deva as her co-dancer, here too, she is excellent. She is in a different orbit when she has a dancer for a co-actor. In “Que sarasara” she matched Prabhu Deva step for step, here it is a typically Govinda dance that is a treat.

So what, if the lyrics are non-sensical. The song is set as a fun-song, going by the video I have a feeling that Madhuri has accidentally eaten or drunk something intoxicating and Govinda is trying his best to control her in the given circumstances.

A few days back I had sent a song from ‘Disco Dancer’ to Atulji and then I had made up my mind to follow it with another Mithun song which features a ‘mithai‘. There were other songs from the 70s which were running through my mind for this particular post which is for a very special occasion. Songs which showed the male running the household while the female is away at work. But on reviewing those songs I felt that the song which Peevesie suggested is better. Why? Well for one today is a party occasion and “mithai toh banti hai” – it is our Ranchiwaale Gaanewala’s birthday (now its about time to give him a new name, he is no longer in Ranchi 🙂 ). It has a lot of activity in it and our sutradhaar is a hyperactive person. I don’t need to give any proof to show his level of activeness, his commitment to his pets, work and the blog is proof enough. There have been days when I have found him online early in the morning with a post at 5:45 a.m. and a few times his last post has been at 12 in the night. Hats off to his dedication. Approximately 10804 posts (on the day this is being written) and still having a lot of ideas to connect with songs and give us new post daily – AMAZING. Thank you Atulji for giving us this group and site to turn to.

Before I sat to write all this, I read through what I had written last year and I feel the same even now- May God give Atulji health, peace of mind, lots of time and good infrastructural support in the form of unending internet and electrical connections. And we will not mind him being absent from the blog when his family is around as they are more entitled to his time. (Hope he enjoyed his first vacation, this year, after he started the blog) And hope he doesn’t mind us pestering him with our farmaishes. Here is hoping he gives us many opportunities to celebrate and we will keep presenting him with lovely songs.

Coming to today’s song it is from the 1990 release “Izzatdaar” which starred the stalwart Dilip Kumar in the lead with the south Indian actor Raghuvaran as villain. Another southern star- Swapna- played Dilip Kumar’s daughter, Madhuri played his grand daughter and Govinda plays a man who works for the underworld (I think) but gets reformed on falling in love. (the powers of the feeling of love 🙂 ). It was a revenge story with Dilip Kumar avenging his daughter’s death etc. with lot of Bollywood masala. It was directed by K Bapaiah, Anand Bakshi wrote songs which were composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. Amit Kumar and Alka Yagnik are the playback.

Wish you a very happy birthday Atulji

 

Song – Ek Rasgulla Kahin Phat Gaya Re (Izzatdaar) (1990) Singer – Alka Yagnik, Amit Kumar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Alka Yagnik + Amit Kumar

Lyrics

Missing Films of 1960s – 72
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s film of the 1960s being introduced is ‘Badmaash’ from 1969.  A very obscure and unfamiliar film, that is known only by its presence in the Geet Kosh. But I was surprised when I checked out the cast. This film belongs to the Sheikh Mukhtar genre. His films may not be blockbusters, but still they are known only because they are Sheikh Mukhtar films. Even so, this film is lesser known in comparison.

It is well known that Sheikh Mukhtar would be churning out films very regularly, but he never established a production house that sustained. Practically all his films are produced under different banners. This film is from the banner of Saras Chitra, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The star cast of this film reads like Sheikh Mukhtar, Helen, Chandrashekhar, Padma, NA Ansari, Vishwa Mehra, Dalda, Shashimala, Satyen Kappu, Jilani, Chandrakala, Surya Kumar, Bhagwan, Rachna, Jayshree, Satish Vyas, Nawab, Jaswant, Ajeet, Abdul Sattar, Nanak, Motu, and Nandini Desai. The regulars are all there – Chandrashekhar, Helen, NA Ansari. And then of course the lesser known regulars. A nearly new name for that era, which appears in this list is Satyen Kappu. We have known him from his character roles in films of 1970s and onward. On checking his filmography, we find that he makes his debut in this film, in all likelihood. I say it this way, because the available information for character artists is not very accurate. This is the earliest film in which his name is listed.

There are only four songs listed in the Geet Kosh, for this film. All the songs are from the pen of Anjaan. The music director is Avinash Vyas. A little surprising to read his name associated with this film. Not that he does not have other B/C grade films in his portfolio. But most of his films are either religious / mythological or fantasy / costume drama. ‘Badmaash’ seems to be his only stunt / crime drama film.

The singing voice is Krishna Kalle. As I have been reviewing the films of second half of 1960s, I find her name appear quite regularly in songs of B/C grade films of that era. This song seems to be a club/bar song, and the performer appears to be drunk herself. Given the cast of actors, it would seem that Helen is the female lead in this film, opposite to Chandrashekhar. It is possible that this song may be performed by her. Another possibility is Padma, a name that I think refers to Padma Khanna, who was also a leading dance item performer of that era. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about the film and its songs.

Rendering by Krishna Kalle is just too good. These types of songs were a monopoly of Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt – actually more of Asha Bhosle in that period of latter part of 1960s. With this song, one can see the potential that Krishna Kalle had to compete with Asha Bhosle.  But well, history is history. Listen and enjoy this definitive performance by her.

 

Song – Utha Palken Mila Nazren  (Badmaash) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken
mila nazren

idhar to dekh
kaisi pyaas
machli hai nigaahon mein
idhar to dekh
kaisi pyaas
machli hai nigaahon mein
dhadakte dil ko le le
shokh baahon ki panaahon mein
mohabbat ki
nai khushboo
se ye saansen mehakne de
utha palken
ay
mila nazren

ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
ye maana
saagar o meena ka
dilkash daur hota hai
magar aankhon se peene ka
mazaa kuchh aur hota hai
haseen palkon
ke saaye mein
naye saagar khanakne de
utha palken
mila nazren
ye paimaane chhalakne de
behakta hai
agar ye dil
bura kya hai behakne de
utha palken
mila nazren

धड़कते दिल को ले ले
शोख बाहों की पनाहों में
मोहब्बत की
नई खुशबू

ये माना
सागर ओ मीना का
दिलकश दौर होता है

सागर ओ मीना का
दिलकश दौर होता है
मगर आँखों से पीने का
मज़ा कुछ और होता है
हसीन पलकों

नए सागर खनकने दे
उठा पलकें
मिला नज़रें
ये पैमाने छलकने दे
बहकता है
अगर ये दिल
बुरा क्या है बहकने दे
उठा पलकें

“Mall Road”(1962) was directed by Viren Dablish for Indira Films, Bombay. The movie had Chandrashekhar, Sangeeta, Amrit Rana, Kammo Tripathi, Surya Kumar, Bela Bose, Radheyshyam, Ratna, Saroj, Alok Verma, SR Sharma, Bagla, Srikant Sharma, Nepali, Roshan, Dalda, Munshi ji etc in it.

This obscure movie had seven songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Mall Road”(1962) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi. Veren Dablish is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sudarshan.

Only the audio of the song is available. The lyrics clearly show that the song is a drunkard song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Jaam chalne ko hai…saaqiyaa aisi pilaa de (Mall Road)(1962) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Viren Dablish, MD-Sudarshan

Lyrics

jaam chalne ko hai
sab ahle nazar baithe hain
aankhen churaana na saaqi
hum bhi idhar baithe hain
hic

saaqiyaa aisi pila de
hum ko divaana bana de
hum nashe mein choor ho kar
apne saare gham bhula den
hum nashe mein choor ho kar
apne saare gham bhula den
saaqiyaa aisi pila de

main sharaabi hoon to kya hai
saari duniya ko nasha hai
aankhon par parde pade hain
aankhon par parde pade hain
ismein kya meri khata hai
kyun mujhi se hai khafa tu
hic
khafa tu
kyun mujhi se hai khafa tu
bas mujhe itna bata de
saaqiyaa aisi pila de
hahahaha

mujhko begaana samajh kar
ek deevaana samajh kar
kyun mujhe be-aabru karte ho
parvaana samajh kar
kyun mujhe be-aabru karte ho
parvaana samajh kar
dard hai mere bhi dil mein
haay haay haay haay
dard hai mere bhi dil mein
kuchh to iski bhi dava de
saaqiyaa aisi pila de

Sabse buri sharaab hai (Naatak)(1975) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

sabse buri ee sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se
main kyun inhen pasand hoon
poochhe koi is janaab se ae
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se

mere baaare mein
ye khayaal hai janaab ka aa
mere baare mein
ye khayaal hai janaab ka
main ek khila hua
phool hoon gulaab ka
ho lipte huye hain
is kadar
kaante magar gulaab se
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se

wo hai deewaana
jisko bhi mujhse pyaar hai ae
wo hai deewaana
jisko bhi mujhse pyaar hai
tauba hai yaaron
mera koi aitbaar hai
ho kaise suna doon aapko
kisse hai kuchh kharaab se ae
sabse buri sharaab hai ae
main hoon buri sharaab se
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharab se

koi na koi
ilzaam mil jaayega aa
koi na koi
ilzaam mil jaayega
kahin na kahin mera naam mil jaayega
ho padh kar fasaana dekh lo
koi kisi kitaab se
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se
main kyun inhen pasand hoon
poochhe koi is janaab se
sabse buri sharaab hai
main hoon buri sharaab se
