“Sangdil” (1967), unlike “Sangdil”(1952) is a less known movie. It was directed by Dharam Kumar for Alamdeep Productions, Bombay. This B grade movie had Manohar Deepak, Bhagwan, Johnny Walker, Surendra, Ameeta, Dara Singh, Anwar, Indira, Satish etc in it.

“Sangdil”(1967) had five songs in it that have been forgotten with time. But these songs are forgotten gems.

One song from “Sangdil”(1967) has been covered in the blog. Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.

The song is picturised as a synchronised dance song on a stage, watched by a house full audience in a hall.

I am unable to identify the two dancers. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Lyrics

Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
o Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli

mehfil mein tumhaare jalwon mein
o o o
kya mujhpe qayaamat dhhaayi hai
kya mujhpe qayaamat dhhaayi hai
sau baar to dhhalka hai aanchal
sau baar ye nazar sharmaayi hai
sau baar ye nazar sharmaayi hai
ye mulaaqaat jaadoo asar nikli
kyun Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli

tum hosh mein rehna ae saaqi
o o o o o
mumkin hai rahe na hosh mujhe
mumkin hai rahe na hosh mujhe
ab mera sambhalna mushqil hai
behkoon to na dena dosh mujhe
behkoon to na dena dosh mujhe
saat rangeen pichhle pahar nikli
o Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli
meri jaan le gayi
do jahaaan le gayi
ho ise shola kahoon ya kahoon main bijli
Badi kaafir tumhaari nazar nikli

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the date when we think of our favourite innovator of the 70s and 80s. The songs he composed for his debut, in the 1961 released “Chhote Nawaab”, were of a different flavour from the music he created in his later years. Of course, I don’t need to mention that today is Pachamda a.k.a R D Burman’s remembrance day.

It is 26 years since his passing and we, his fans, still talk of him in present tense. We do not tire of describing his love for experimenting with sounds- using a glass and spoon or broom and comb to create the opening note of a song; or asking an artist to gargle warm water to provide a dramatic effect to a scene. Asha Bhonsle has often mentioned how she had to practice breathing to sing “piya tu ab toh aaja”.

My quest for a song to go with this post lead me to the blog’s “List-of-songs-by-movies” page of the blog and I found that we have yiippeeeed all of RD’s initial movies viz: – Chhote Nawab, Bhoot Bangla, Teesra Kaun, Teesri Manzil, Pati Patni, Chandan ka palna, Bahaaron Ke Sapne, Abhilasha, Pyaar Ka Mausam, and Waaris i.e. his contribution to the world of HFM in the 60s has been fully represented on the blog.

Of the movies of the next decade, the more popular ones are yiippeeeed and that is a longer list which I recommend the readers to find for themselves. Same is the case with movies of the 80s where we find that many popular movies are yet to even debut on the blog and some are one or two songs away from being yyiippeeeed. That means we are spoiled for choice as to which song will go with the post. Then the next point to be considered is whether we want a song sung by Panchamda or just a song with just his music. Then I thought if I wanted a solo, duet- all male or male-female duet etc etc. The possible songs kept changing even as I wrote the post and finally, I did an akad-bakad-bambe-boo and landed on this song which will help the concerned movie attain Yiippeeeehood.

Following songs from the movie have been covered so far:

Sapna mera toot gaya
Hamne tumko dekha tumne hamko dekha aise
khullam khulla pyaar karenge hum donon
Ek main aur ek tu

For the story and personal thoughts connected with “Khel Khel Mein” a visit to the above posts will suffice. Today’s song is perfect for the weather North of India and many parts of the northern hemisphere of the world are currently experiencing- supremely cold winds and snow in many areas. I have seen this movie a number of times. If I am not wrong, other than at the time of its release in the 70s, only the mukhada and first antara are there in the movie. With this Khel Khel Mein has attained Yyiippeeeehood.

Let us get to the song without much ado. It is an RDB- Gulshan Bawra- Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhosle classic.


Song-Aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye (Khel Khel Mein)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saayein
woh bhi iss tarah,
mil jaayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

sang chalein toh manzil door nahin hai
jahaan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
ho ho ho
sang chale to manzil dur nahin hai
arre jahan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
yeh kaarvaan chalta rahe
chaahe jahaan jalta rahe
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare
iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
ho ho ho
yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare

iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
hansti rahe yeh zindagi
badhti rahe dil ki lagi

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
woh bhi iss tarah,
mil jaayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

“Jaagir”(1984) was produced and directed by Pramod Chakraborty for Pramod Films, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman, Mithun Chakraborty, Shoma Anand, Amrish Puri, Preeti Sapru, Danny Denzongpa, Ranjeet, Beena Bannerjee, Azad, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, R.S.Chopra, Bob Christo, Tarun Ghosh, Iftekhar, Kamal Kapoor, Praveen Kumar, Pran, Subroto Mahapatra, Baby Pinky, Sujeet Kumar, Mac Mohan, Master Ravi, Amol Sen, Asit Sen, Sunder Taneja, Ashalata Wabgaonkar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

One of these songs was a new year song. Today (1 january 2020) is an ideal occasion to cover this song.

So here is this new year song from “Jaagir”(1984). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a stage dance performance on Zeenat Aman, Dharmendra etc. House full audience, including Raj Kishore, Subroto Mahapatra, Amrish Puri, Shoma Anand, Ranjeet, Preeti Sapru, Praveen Kumar,Sunder Taneja(anouncer) are present on the occasion. Amrish Puri and Ranjeet receive call (on landline phone, brought to them on their chairs) that their nefarious business has been foiled and the main person was donning an orange boiler suit. And Ranjeet recalls having seen this boiler suited man onstage. So he obviously plans his next move as soon as the song finishes. 🙂 Our villains never act till the song performance is over !

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy new year 2020. 2020 has a nice sring about it, especially because we are already familiar with 2020 format of cricket :). Let us hope that this year will see quick fire action in our lives and also in the blog, similar to the action that we are used to seeing in a 2020 game of cricket.

With this song, “Jaagir”(1984) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Round up of 2019

An eventful year comes to a close. I have had great experiences that will bring a smile on my face when I think of them or look at the related pictures.

First- my daughter gave me a promotion and I enjoyed every minute of the event. Only feeling at the end of it was— having waited for it from last July, when she announced her intention, I felt January came too soon and the week, with happenings related to the event, was over with the blessings of the elders of the family and good wishes of friends and relatives. And I must thank the Atulites too who came for it.

The next two months of the year were rather quiet. The major point of March being the R.M.I.M meet. I was lucky to have been able to attend the R.M.I.M in Bangalore this year -30th &31st March to be precise. And am I glad I attended it on both dates, unlike the last time when I went for one day and left almost immediately after lunch.

This time R.M.I.M was celebrating two birth centenaries – that of Chitragupta and Shamshad Begum. There was also a mention about the fact that Manna Dey would also have been 100 this year. Plus, there was a mention that many music luminaries of the past, who would have been 100 this year, need to be remembered.

On the occasion our Gajendraji reminisced about his encounter or meeting with the Shamshad Begum in 2012, when she was 92. He spoke about how sharp her memory was and about her sense of humour. He mentioned that when he asked her about her feelings towards her songs being remixed by the current generation her reply surprised him. She is said to have told him that by remixing, the songs were kept alive and more people were able to relish them.

Later during the post lunch session there was a debate or discussion on how social media impacted music and films. The discussion also touched whether it was right to colourise old black & white classics, remix or morph old videos etc. This was followed by Kushal Gopalka’s session where he spoke about his association with Shamshad Begumji. He mentioned another incident that showed Shamshad Begum’s view about life. He talked of an event for which he had escorted Shamshad Begumji; where the master of ceremonies asked her about her colleagues who were no more and had died rather young; for this -he says- her reply was “humari umr par nazar mat daaliye.”
My personal take-home from this was I got to meet the gracious, simple and humble Sudha Malhotra. She sounds very melodious in person even when she speaks.

For more on the meet I suggest visiting here.

April end saw me in Mumbai for a few days on some personal agenda. Which I clubbed with a met-up of friends from ASAD. That was a good gangout with guruji also landing back in Mumbai that morning and meeting Bakshishji and Nitinji for the first time (didn’t feel it was the first time though) and of course Sudhirji was also there. So, in all a good gangout even if I was present only for a short time I enjoyed.

June end was a trip to Bhopal to meet my gang of girls from college and chilling out in the heat of Madhya Bharat. But that was also fun, we parted with a promise of making it an annual affair.

July saw me in Kerala, the island resort of Ashtamudi, with newly acquired relatives and getting to know them. September end was Navaratri which saw me in my ‘sasural ka village’ as well as in Kolkata for Durga Pooja. A long-cherished dream of visiting the pooja pandals was fulfilled by my personal Santa.

Actually, for all of the above, I must thank my personal Santa as he never questions me or my intentions. He also turned a year older, an age when people normally hang-up their boots and think of taking life easy having worked for 40 years now. But my Santa has not yet thought about his boots or rest. He has a lot of enthusiasm for outings and excursions and is already planning his next joyful weekend. These breaks are what keep him going in stressful work conditions I suppose. God bless him forever.

I must thank our Sadanandji and Sudhirji for the song with this post. I am thanking Sudhirji as he suggested the song, since I have little knowledge of any song featuring the Shamshad Begum – Chitragupta combination. On a busy Saturday morning I pestered Sudhirji to find out if any Shamshad Begum song in Chitragupta’s music direction was left to be posted and he gave me this song before the day was out. Sadanandji has to be thanked as he is the one who has uploaded the song to YouTube. The movie is the 1953 release “Manchala” which had music by Chitragupta, the additional reason for my choosing this is, it is a duet by Shamshad Begum and Chitragupta.

Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was the lyricist for a movie which was produced and directed by Jayant Desai and had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Agha Jeevan etc in the cast. Going by the lyrics and the sound of the song the male in the song could have been Agha.
Happy Partying & tik tok tik tok to 2020.

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 95th birth anniversary :

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is for a song from the 1981 release “Zamaane ko Dikhaana Hai” which was produced and directed by Nasir Hussain. It marked the debut of Padmini Kolhapure as an adult; prior to this she had acted as a child star in numerous movies. The music department was handled by Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman. The songs were play-backed by Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Mohd. Rafi and Pancham. Nasir Hussain took a few scenes from his “Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hain” – song on train top; runaway girl from “Caravan” and a song & dance competition inspired from “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”. Additionally, there are multiple songs in a scene as in “Yaadon Ki Baraat” and “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”.

The story of the movie was very simple and straight: – a rich man, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo (may his soul rest in peace) has two sons Ramesh (Randhir Kapoor in a guest appearance) and Ravi (Rishi Kapoor). Ramesh (the older son) loves and marries a not-so-rich girl and so is banished from the household. All this happens during the absence of the younger Ravi who convinces his dad to forgive his BHAIYYA and sets out to bring his brother back. He finds that his bhaiyya and bhabhi are dead leaving their baby in the care of the bhabhi’s sister Kanchan (Padmini Kolhapure). Now his job is to convince Kanchan of his good intentions, fall in love with her in the process and take her & his nephew home but not before the movie runs through its set of twists and turns. Then there is also the rich man’s bad brother to take care of before the movie comes to an ‘ALL IS WELL THAT ENDS WELL’ close.

The movie had fairly popular songs, two of which are already on the blog. Today’s song is a multi- version song. Also, one of the version forms part of the multiple song set that I mentioned. In one version we have a song and dance competition where Vijay Arora (guest appearance) along with his partner (Aarti Gupta- also in guest appearance) challenges Rishi to the floor. But he is too drunk to get off the chair. So, Padmini takes to the floor sings & moves a leg and Rishi Kapoor joins and they compete with good support from the kids in the audience.

The second version with different stanzas has a drunk Padmini leading the song where the lovers fantasize about their future. We had Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosle giving their voices to the two songs.

This movie released about a year after Rafi saab’s death. This post is also to celebrate the 95th birth anniversary of Padmashri Mohd Rafi.
Rafi saab- the man who started his career in films in 1944 with a song under Shyam Sunder’s baton. In the career that spanned 36 years he had lent his voice for all the actors who have graced the silver screen in that time frame. He also appeared on-screen in two films. He was the favourite singer of an entire generation and the following generation too. People loved his Halke-Phulke songs as much as his classical based songs. He had great control on his voice and could go full-throated or soft in the same song. Don’t know why god stopped making singers like him and no matter how much one sounded like Rafi saab they couldn’t sing like him and none of his clones or apes or people who claimed to have been inspired by him reached that height of popularity. And I have heard and read in various places that he was a very humble human being. Like the song which Amitabh sang in a movie (in Mohd. Aziz’s voice) in 1990 “na phankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya, Mohd. Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya”; we, his fans, too miss him.

Wishing that Rafi Saab was still with us and thanking god for giving us such a divine-voiced singer let us enjoy today’s song.

Today’s song is from an obscure film-Dhola Maru-1956. The film was produced by and under the banner of Cine Workers’ Society, Bombay. It was directed by N R Acharya and the music was provided by S K Pal – for whom this film was his swan song. This was his last film as MD. All the 11 songs of the film were written by Bharat Vyas. The cast was Usha Kiran, Pradeep Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Rehana, Sapru, S Nazir, Kumkum and many others including 5 actresses named as Miss Pammi, Miss Usha, Miss Hemlata, Miss Hansa and Miss Sarita as well as a guest artiste- Ulhas.

” Unity in Diversity” was a favourite slogan of Nehru. Truly, there is no other country in the world having such a diverse population and area. The biggest surviving Democracy in the world has 28 states and 9 Union Territories. Our constitution mentions 22 official languages, including Urdu and Sanskrit. In this vast country about 30 languages are spoken, each by more than 3 million people, 120 languages are spoken by more than 10000 people and about 1600 spoken languages and with script- both mixed. In addition, 7 major and several other religions too.

With so much of diversity of languages, religions and cultures, it is a wonder that India has survived for thousands of years. The main factor is the binding of Indian Culture and Tolerance. It is interesting to recall that, just prior to getting Independence, Winston Churchill and many other world leaders had predicted that within a short period, India will disintegrate into pieces. Contrary to their wishful thinking, Indian people have come out stronger in last 75 years.

Due to the diversity, there are separate Folk lores in almost every state. Love stories are the major contributors. Like the famous Laila-Majnu and Romeo-Juliet, every state has its own Love story. Even our Mythology has thrilling love stories, Like Uttara- Abhimanyu, Dushant-Shakuntala, Arjun-Subhadra etc.

For love stories, Punjab and Sindh lead all the way. You have several such stories as – Sohni Mahiwal, Heer-Ranja, Sassi-Punnu, Monal-Rano, Umar-Marvi, Lila-Chanesar, Noori-Tamchi, Dhaj-Rorkumar and Mirza-Sahiban are some of the most popular love stories of Punjab and Sindh.

Like I said, in other regions too, there are Love stories like Jodha -Akbar, Salim-Anarkali, Bajirao-Mastani, Prithviraj-Sanyogita, Amrapali-Bimbisar, Mumal-Mahendra, Amaravathy-Ambikapathy (south-Tamil) etc.

There was yet another popular Folk-Lore of Lovers in the states of Rajasthan, M.P., Chhattisgarh and Gujarat and that is the story of Prince Dhola and Princess Maru. Unlike the Punjab Folk-Lores of Lovers, Dhola Maru has several versions, especially Rajasthani and Chhattisgarhi versions. Several Books and stories as well as Folk songs were written on Dhola-Maru. There was a Gujarati Hit film Dhola-Maru-1983.

( When I had first heard the name of Dhola-Maru, I was reminded of the Japanese steamship Kamagota Maru, which had carried about 300 Sikh and other Indians, who tried to enter Canada. They were refused and sent back to India. On reaching Calcutta, they were refused entry as they were from Hongkong. There was a fight and in the ensuing firing, hundreds were killed. This was known throughout the world.)

Dhola – Maru story took place somewhere in the 15th century. However this is a Happy ending Love story, unlike most Punjabi tragedies.

The Rajasthani version of the story is-

The Legend of Dhola and Maru is the Indian version of Romeo-Juliet saga. The princess Maru was from a place called Pugal near Bikaner while Dhola was the young and handsome prince of Gwalior. A terrible drought in Pugal made Maru’s(then 2 years old) father shift to Gwalior, which was ruled by his friend, the father of Dhola. He stayed there for three years and before leaving for his hometown, the two kings each promised to get their children married to each other. However, after a span of 20 years all promises were forgotten and Maru was betrothed to a man called Umra. But destiny prevailed, and bard from Pugal who had travelled to Gwalior sang at the royal court about the childhood betrothal of Dhola and Maru. After listening to the song Dhola fell hook, line and sinker for the virtuous princess Maru. With love in his eyes Dhola began wooing Maru who also fell in love with the handsome Dhola. Where two hearts collide there has to be an outcome, and so they decided to run away.

Umra came to know about their plans and went after them with his brother sumra. The eloping lovers on their Camel with their bows arrows were no match for the Umra-Sumra brothers who had guns. However, they were able to evade the evil brothers and took refuge in a forest. Unfortunately Dhola was bitten by a snake and died on the spot, Maru, thus cheated by her lover, proceeded to weep the death. Luck favoured Maru and her cries were heard by Lord Shiva and consort Parvati. Parvati requested her husband to revive Dhola and thus by divine intervention the lovers were united to live happily ever after.

There are some differences in the Chhattisgarhi versions, where in prince Dhola gets married to Rewa for 12 years, after which,he goes for Maru etc.

In Indian films, there were some actresses who were earmarked to do the roles of Mothers and Grandmothers. Some of them were Leela Chitnis, Durga Khote, Leela Mishra, Deena Pathak, Nirupa Roy, Achala Sachdev and few others. While Leela Mishra and Deena Pathak seemed to be born to do such roles, most others were Heroines in their Hey-days. Achala Sachdev was a prominent actress, who was highly respected in the industry – only till she was in circulation. Once she retired from films, no one bothered about her and she died absolutely a lonely death.

Achala Sachdev ( 3-5-1920 to 30-4-2012) (original name Rajinder)’s name is permanently conjoined with a mother’s role. She did a mother’s role when she was very young and since then-more than a heroine- she has been seen either as a sister or Mother in films. In her earliest film ‘Dilruba’-50 she was Dev Anand’s sister and later in many films she was a fixed mother of Dev Anand.

She worked in All India Radio, Lahore,she came to Delhi after the Partition and continued her job in All India Radio, till her first film. She acted in 181 Hindi films, 3 Punjabi films and 1 Gujarati film, in addition to 1 uncompleted Bangla film. She acted in few television serials and FD documentaries too.

In her early years she had got married to Gyan Sachdeva. She begot one son and one daughter from him. Her son Jyotin, a business consultant, settled in US and Daughter was married in Bombay. When she could not pull on, she divorced her husband. After 12 years of loneliness she fell in love and married an American Clifford Douglas Peters, who was an Engineer and ran an Electronics factory in Poona. She stopped accepting new films after 1976 and then shifted to Poona.

After her second husband died, she shifted from her Bungalow in Bhosari, near Poona to a specious flat in Hadapsar area of Poona. She had completed all films on hand ,but due to insistence of family friend Yash Chopra, she acted in some of his films- notably ‘Dilwale dulhaniya le jaayenge’-95. Though her last film was ‘ Dahak ‘-98, her last released film was Suno sasur ji-2003.

During her heydays, she was very friendly with Sunil Dutt and Nargis, Mona Dev Anand ( kalpana kartik), Meena kumari, Saira Bano and her mother Naseem Bano. She was very punctual during her shootings. Once while working in a Rajesh Khanna film, she had to wait for him for 4 hours, with all make up done. When this continued to happen for next 10 days, she left the film and went back to Poona. Rajesh Khanna wrote an apology letter to her and then only she came back to complete the film.

Once she was in Poona, she was all alone. No one from film industry ever contacted her in her last 40 years. She was very generous. She had donated 25 lakhs to an NGO, Janseva Foundation to start ‘Achala Sachdev Institute of Education”. She also gave 15 Lakhs to Dr. H.V.Desai Eye Hospital for a ward construction. In her last days,she even donated her flat also to the NGO Janseva Foundation.

She was sick for last 6 months and was looked after by the NGO. Admitted to Poona General Hospital ICU, she got Paralysis, lost her vision and then lost her life on 30-4-2012. A highly successful film star with lots of money, but she was neglected by her own son and daughter. Above all, in last 40 years in Poona, not one soul from the film world met her. What was pathetic was, when she was admitted in I.C.U., her attending doctor, Dr. Mehta sent messages to Yash Chopra and others in Film industry, but none came or even inquired and she died a lonely death.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 89 #
—————————————–

Welcome all to this post where once again I take you all back to the songs of seventies.

I originally wanted to present this post during the ‘Diwali festival’ since this song brings back my memories of ‘Diwali vacation’ days of my childhood. L liked this song as well as the other songs from this movie.

The song is from the ‘1975 movie ‘Warrant’. I was around seven years old then when the movie was released in 1975.

‘Warrant-1975’ had Dev Anand in lead role. And today 3rd December 2019 is the eighth ‘remembrance anniversary’ (26.09.1923-03.12.2011) of actor, producer, director Dev Anand.
We pay our tributes to him and will always be grateful for some of the great roles he played in the Hindi movies and also for the memorable and everlasting music which was a part of most of his movie.

Many new Dev Anand movies were getting released in those years when I was growing, but we were not getting to watch them then. Here when I say new movies means movies like ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’, ‘Ameer Ghareeb’, ‘Warrant’, ‘Jaaneman’, ‘Bullet’, ‘Kalaabaaz’, ‘Darling Darling’, ‘Sahib Bahadur’ etc.

Instead in our colony club’s weekly movie screening we were getting to watch many of his old ‘black and white’ movies, like ‘Sarhad’, ‘Bambai Ka Babu’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota hai’, ‘Pocketmaar’, ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Teen Deviyaan’ etc.
And some the movies like ‘Shareef Badmaash’ I watched in a ‘touring talkies’ may be in 1974-75, and I think I watched some of the movies like ‘Joshilaa’, ‘Des Pardes’ during end seventies or early eighties.

I was not a big fan of Dev Anand in my childhood. But my father was a very big fan of him and because of that I became aware of his old movies and songs from them.
And I vaguely remember to have watched ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’, ‘Heera Panna’, and ‘Chhupa Rustam’ with my father when I was a child.

Later on, I watched many of Dev Anand movies between 1981-1988 and after that. However, for this post I am restricting myself and the discussion to the decade 1971-1980 only. In all the movies which I watched later including his ‘coloured’ and ‘black & white’ movies I always liked his acting, dialogues deliveries and his style.

However, I am still to watch many of his movies from the seventies which weren’t successful but their music was always very good.

Let us have a look at the Dev Anand movies released from 1971-1980:

The songs from this movie ‘Warrant-1975’ are nostalgic for me since my childhood days, and even though I had never watched this movie until I watched it online this year on ‘Diwali’ day.

I think we watched more movies in the summer vacations than the Diwali vacations, naturally because summer vacations would be longer than Diwali vacations.

I always had a very big nostalgia for the famous three movies and their songs which I remember to have watched during the Diwali festival which were released in the same year in 1974.
These are ‘Bidaai’, ‘Roti’, and ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. I have vague memories of watching these movies with elders in the family or may be all of them viz. my grandmother (my grandfather was still against watching of movies), aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.
I have mentioned about this in my ‘song nostalgia’ on the blog here.

Later I read somewhere that these three movies were released on the same day during Diwali of that year i.e.1974 (14.10.1974, knowledgeable readers can please correct me if I am wrong). Though, now equipped with the information in HFGK if we see the dates of their being given the Censor Certificates are;
Bidaai-09.10.1974, Roti-11.10.1974 and Roti, Kapadaa Aur Makaan-13.09.1974.

And those days ‘hit’ movies always used to run over fifteen weeks to twenty-five weeks. So, people like us staying in near by towns from the city would get to watch the movies on holidays or during the vacations when all family members would visit the city where my grand parents were staying.

‘Warrant-1975’ was passed by Censor Board on 01.11.1975 and I think it was around ‘Diwali’ of that year that this movie must have hit the theatres. And that is why I am reminded of its’ song during ‘Diwali festival’ every year. (The songs from this movie were frequently played either on loud speakers or on radio then and that is why they must have made their way to my impressionable mind then.
I also remember the songs of ‘Ameer Ghareeb’ which were played frequently and I didn’t like them then and they were very irritating to me).

Well, all the three movies that I mentioned above viz. ‘Bidaai’, ‘Roti’, and ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’ were declared as hit or super hit movies of that time. However, in comparison to the above movies I was under impression that the today’s movie ‘Warrant-1975’, was not a successful one, but now sources mentioned that it was among the top ten grossers of that year.

‘Warrant-1975’ was directed by Pramod Chakravarty for N.P. International, Bombay.

It was produced by N.P. Singh.

Here is again one more movie which is dedicated to the ‘police forces’ in the country;

“Dedicated to those Officers and men of our police force who suffered and sacrificed their lives so that their countrymen can live in peace”

‘Warrant-1975’ had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Pran, Dara Singh, Ajit, Satish Kaul, Sulochana, Madan Puri, Jankidas, V.Gopal, Bunty, Aparna Choudhary, Kuljeet, Seema Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, Narbada Shankar, Praveen Paul, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti, Viju Khote, Lambha, Raja Saigal, Rajan Kumar, Manjit, Paul Sharma, Habib, Ujagar, Rajnish, Dhanna, Pehlwan, Birbal, Kirti Kumar, Devdas, Hercules, and many others.

Lalita Pawar, Joginder and Sujit Kumar make friendly appearance in this movie.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues were written by Vrajendra Gaur.
Editing of this movie was done by Narinder Arora.

The movie is an interesting movie to watch except few action scenes where Dev Anand is jumping over the buildings and like that are not easy to digest’😊. They could have been avoided and fight scene suitable to Dev Anand’s image would have been much better.
All the stars perform well to their character in the movie and the movie keeps one engaged till the end.
And most importantly music of this movie is very nice and all songs are very good.

The movie had four songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by R.D. Burman.
Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie where Kishore Kumar had two solos and one duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and other than the duet Lata Mangeshkar had sung one solo song in this movie.
(*HFGK also mentions the name of Asha Bhonsle in the singer’s list of this movie however movie title clearly mentions the name of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar only).

Only one song from this movie featured in the ‘annual ‘Binaca geetmala’ of 1975’ ranking at number twenty-ninth, and it improved by featuring two songs from this movie in the annual ‘Binaca geetmala of 1976 i.e. Ruk jaana o jaana at number twenty-three and ‘main tumse mohabbat karti hoon’ at number thirty-one.

And so, very rightly these two songs have already been posted on the blog and in accordance of their popularity too. 🙂

Song Posted on
Ruk jaana o jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana 18.09.2008
Main tumse mohabbat karti hoon 19.11.2014

Today’s song happens when Mehra (Pran) – Chief of Police and his team (read Jagdish Raj and others) are looking for Jailor Arun (Dev Anand) who is on the run with a murder accused. Police is having the information that Arun would be attending the marriage function of Pyara Singh (Dara Singh)’s sister Guddo (Seema Kapoor).

Pran plays the father of Dev Anand and is a Chief of the Police. Dev Anand being a Jailor also and son of the Police Chief is wanted by Police and is on the run. Jailor Arun had helped and eloped with the accused Dinesh and is sheltering him. The reason being that during a revolt by the prisoners and an attempt of ‘jail-break’ Dinesh saves the life of the Jailor.
Jailor (Dev Anand) wants to know that why a ‘murderer’ saved his life and when he could have run to avoid his hanging which was going to take place soon.
So our Jailor wants to know the ‘truth’ and also look for the ‘asli gunahgaar or qaatil’ of a scientist (Madan Puri), after the accused Dinesh finally breaks the ‘secret’ of his being wrongly ‘trapped’ in the ‘murder-case’ and real ‘qaatil’ and ‘culprits’ are some other people and not him.

The plot is interesting and the presentation is having all the ingredients of the ‘seventies’ movies and one can enjoy the movie and the ‘thrill’ of watching it.

Let us now enjoy the song where Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman perform in disguise (for the police and not for us – the viewers) hiding their real identity in the movie.

Zeenat Aman plays Rita Verma who is the daughter of the deceased scientist Madan Puri and is looking for the killer of her father to take revenge of her father’s death. (But here there is a ‘twist’, and I am leaving that for those interested and want to watch this movie) 😊

As mentioned above the song is composed by R.D. Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.
Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar have given their voices for Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman respectively in this energetic bnagra style dance song.

I hope you will like this song and enjoy it …:)

Today also happens to the birthday of our own Khyati Ben. We wish her a very happy birthday.

Blog Day : 4155 Post No. : 15322

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2019. There are a lot of messages being forwarded on WhatsApp and other social media platforms urging the reader to enjoy the last TEEN year in a long time to come, after this the new millennium will be on the threshold of adulthood (India has 21 as the official age at which a person is considered an adult).

Here is the first birthday post for the month. Let us all wish the “raunaq e blog”- titled bestowed on the recipient two years ago on this date- a very Happy Birthday. May she be forever healthy happy cheerful and full of life, as she has been described by Atulji and Sudhirji in their posts in the blog.

I have not gone looking for hitherto unposted Talat Mehmood songs as Atulji had suggested two years back but went with my regular practice of mixing this birthday girl with the flamboyant, evergreen, forever PACHCHEES (25) actor of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s who was forever hyperactive. And going by what the two Sutradhars of our blog have written, our birthday gal sounds to be ‘hyperactive’ and may she be forever PACHCHEES or shall I say “Aththara” (18). Wish you a very happy birthday Ben Katie a.k.a Khyatiben. Lets us have a great time today on your birthday. Let the music begin and play through the day from this end of the globe to your end.

tum jiyo hazaaron saal saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar,
sau saal jiyo tum jaan meri , or the evergreen baar baar din ye aaye.
Let all these and other birthday songs available here and elsewhere be played on loop (as kids we used to say rewind and replay the cassette). Let our dear birthday gal choose a song she likes; we shall play that too on LOOP.

Today we also remember Raju “Guide” on his 8th Remembrance Day with a song that showcases him with his typical mannerisms which I feel he adopted after around 30-35 years in the industry. That typical nod, crooked smile that made ladies go weak at the knees (or was that smile always a killer) etc. This is from the 1982 release “Swami Dada” which was produced and directed by Dev Anand and had a large cast. The ladies in the movie were Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure (she was still a teenager), Urmila Bhatt, Sushma Seth, Naaz, Christine O’Neil, Beena, Baby Khushboo etc. The male cast was headed by Dev Anand, Mithun Chakravarty, Naseeruddin Shah, Shakti Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tom Alter, Bharat Kapoor, Sudhir etc, this was Jackie Shroff’s first credited screen appearance playing Shakti Kapoor’s confidant.

The first song from this movie was posted exactly seven years back for the same occasion; at that time, I had found this on IMDB.com –

Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

On revisiting imdb I found a little more to go with the above –
Dev Anand is one of the tapori gang, handled by Kulbhushan Kharbanda. He escapes to Western country, only to come back and see that the members of the gang living in same conditions. He, himself have become a spiritual person. Named Swami. In order to break the gang, Dev poses himself as Ringo Dada. Hence the name Swami Dada
Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

“Swami Dada” had music by RD Burman and Anjaan was the lyricist. The playback for today’s song is by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar.
Thinking of the style icon, winner of Dadasaheb Phalke award (2002), Padma Bhushan (2001), and three-time filmfare award recipient one of which was the life-time achievement in 1993, and a darling of the masses for nearly sixty years who is still an inspiration and will remain one for generations to come thanks to the legacy he has left behind. I am not trying to describe the kind of movies he was associated with or anything about his biography here. Let us just get on to the song.


Song-Galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani (Swaami Dada)(1982) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

paanch ke note mein ab kya dam hai

ho o o dus ka note cigarette ko bhi kam hai
ho o ab hare note ka mol hai kya
socho kuchh oonchi baat zara
ab baat karo toh laakhon ki
dekhenge khwaab karodon ke

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho o ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

aaj sanwar ke dekha jo darpan
apni nazar se sharma gayi ee
kiske hunar ka chal gaya jaadoo
kahaan thi kahaan se kahaan aa gayi
ho mera haar

iss heere ke haar mein kya hai
apna mol toh aanko
tum kya ho kya ban sakte ho
apne dil mein jhaanko
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
asli baat na jaani ho o o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani

mil ke mere saath chalo toh
woh duniya dikhlaoon
jeete ji woh jannat kaise
milti hai batlaoon

tumko masheeha maan liya hai
ab jaana hai aur kahaan aan
tumse mile toh dekhe ujaale
varna dhuaan thhe donon jahaan
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
ho duniya ko hairaani ho o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
