#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

Blog Day :

4089 Post No. : 15231

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

When one discusses songs sung by Lata, we mostly discuss all time classics, songs that have stood the test of time, songs that have become iconic etc. And there are hundreds of such songs.

Also, she was very particular about the kind of songs that she would sing. She would look down upon songs with lyrics that she found objectionable. Instead of facing her ire, music directors would often take the easy way out and get these songs sung by some other singer. And the major beneficiary was her own sister Asha Bhonsle. Most cabaret songs sung by shady female characters (often Helen, Bindu etc: ) in the movie went to Asha Bhonsle. On some occasions, some music directors who had the necessary connections with Lata ji (viz Laxmikant Pyarelal) managed to convince her to sing such songs. That is how we found her agreeing to sing a few cabaret songs for Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The “Inteqam”(1969) cabaret song Aa jaane jaan tere liye main aas lagaaye is a song that is normally the preserve of Asha Bhonsle, Lata has done an Asha Bhonsle in this song !

Likewise, when the “disco” craze began, which killed off the golden era of HFM for ever, it is rare to see her singing “disco” songs.

So it comes as a great surprise to everyone how she agreed to sing this “disco” song from “Khuddaar”(1982). This movie was produced by F K Rattonse and Anwar Ali and directed by Ravi Tandon for Yokohoma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, amitabh Bachchan, , Vinod Mehra, Tanuja, Parveen Babi, Bindiya Goswami, Prem Chopra, Mehmood, A K Hangal, Ramesh Dev, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raveendra Kapoor, Madhu Malini etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it and the songs were mostly of “Chaalu” kind as was the trend in those days. Our own Raja, even to this day, can be successfully trolled by reminding him that the song Angrezi mein kahte hain ki I love you wfrom this movie was the top hit song of Binaca Geetmala that year. 🙂

On the occasion of Lata Mangeshkar’s birthday, here is a “Disco” song from “Khuddaar”(1982).To this day, I have not been able to understand how Lata Mangeshkar agreed to sing this song ! But she sang this song alright. And this song is a party song too, fit to be covered on the occasion of her birthday.

The song is sung by Lata and Kishore Kumar. If Lata agreed to sing such a song, then Majrooh Sultanpuri agreed to pen a song like this ! Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan. He certainly must have been quite a persuasive person, who convinced Majrooh Sultanpuri and Lata to be associated with this song. 🙂

The song is picturised as a party song on Vinod Mehra, Kalpana Aiyyer and many others.

Hullo Atuldom

“Khoon Ki Pukar” released in 1978 – censor certificate is dated 29-5-1978. It was directed by Ramesh Ahuja and produced by Tahir Husain’s T. V. Films Pvt. Ltd. It had a cast headed by Vinod Khanna and Shabana Azmi with Aruna Irani, Amjad Khan, Roopesh Kumar, Krishnakant and Pran as main supporting characters. The movie opens with the lines in “buland awaaz” (have always wondered whose voice it was)

khudi ko kar buland itna, ke har takdeer se pehle,
khuda bande se khud pooche, bata teri raza kya hai

which translates as

Make yourself so worthy that before deciding your fate God shall ask you what you wish for!

This was standard for all movies made by Tahir Husain. The movie’s songs were written by Hasrat Jaipuri (2) and Gauhar Kanpuri (5). Bappi Lahiri was the music director. The seven songs were rendered by Lata Mangeshkar (3 solos and 2 duets), Kishore Kumar (1 solo and 1 duet), Anuradha Paudwal (1), and Mohd. Rafi (only a duet).

I have been seeing this movie as and when time has been permitting over the last couple of days and this is what I have seen –

” After the murder of his wife, and his son’s kidnapping, Dr. Vidya Bhushan (Pran) decides to devote the rest of his life as a Poojary, living on the premises of a princely-donated temple, hoping and praying that one day he will be reunited with his estranged son. One day a wounded bandit named Sher Singh (Vinod Khanna) comes to the temple and Pran treats him back to health. He not only shields the man from the police, but also lies to the townspeople that the man’s name is Amrit, When Amrit recovers, he is grateful to Vidya for looking after him, and he falls in love with a town belle by the name of Shalu (Shabana Azmi). What Vidya does not know is that Amrit is really interested in the gold and jewellery hidden in a secret underground chamber below the temple; and what Amrit does not know is Shalu is seeking vengeance against Sher Singh for killing her father.”

From the above it is evident that the movie was a typical Bollywood-masala-movie relying heavily on the tried and tested ‘lost and found’ theme and ‘dacoits and revenge’ for additional leverage with the audience. Vinod Khanna and Shabana Azmi were a popular on-screen couple from the 1976 released “Shaque” to “Lahu Ke do Rang” which came in 1979 after which VK suddenly left everything and went off to Rajneesh Ashram. They did about 7 films as romantic pair and this must be one of the only movies were VK played a nasty dacoit after he turned to playing the main hero roles. Of course, this dacoit is the hero of the movie or as the stars of Bollywood like to say – character with grey-shades which gets reformed eventually, 😊

Today’s song is penned by Hasrat Jaipuri whose 20th anniversary was on 17th of September. On screen it is performed by Shabana and VK for a song sung by Lata and Kishore.
This song is also meant to wish Shabana Azmi on her 69th birthday. We all know that she was born on 18 September to poet Kaifi Azmi and his actress wife Shaukat Azmi. She is supremely talented and has won 5 National Awards for Best Actress over the years from her debut film “Ankur” in 1975 to 1999 for “Godmother”; she is also a Padma Award winner along with being a social and Women’s Rights activist.

It was not by design that I chose this song today. My aim was just to see if Shabana had worked in any movie produced by Tahir Husain and I landed on this. Why did I look for a Tahir Husain movie? Because I wanted to remember him on his 81st birth anniversary which is on 19th September. Tahir Husain – who was brother of Nasir Hussain and father of actors Aamir Khan and Faizal Khan. Tahir Husain also produced a few movies beginning with the 1971 “Caravan” till “Madhosh” in 1994. We have seen him in front of the camera in a few films directed by his brother Nasir Husain.

So, here is today’s song which starts with a couplet

ये इश्क़ नहीं आसान बस इतना समझ लीजिये
एक आग का दरिया है और डूब के जाना है

I have heard this couplet a number of times in my life and I decided to google to find its poet/ shaayar. First google came up with Jigar Moradabadi’s name, then I also found these lines attributed to Mirza Ghalib. Now I am confused. I hope there is someone in the followers of this blog who will tell who wrote this first. But Hasrat Jaipuri has begun the song with the couplet and let us enjoy it.

P.S.: I love the way Vinod Khanna walks dressed as the groom in the middle of the song. 🙂


Song-Ye ishq nahin aaasaan itna hi samajh leeje (Khoon Ki Pukaar)(1978) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

yeh ishq nahin aasaan
itna hi samajh leeje ae
ek aag ka dariya hai
aur doob ke jaana hai
samjhe buddhu
aah!nahin
nahin samjha

pyaar taqdeer jagmagaata hai
rang jeewan mein jamaata hai
pyar bandook toh nahin nadaan
sabko insaan yeh banaata hai
abhi bhi nahin samjhein
ab bhi bhi nahi samjha

mohabbat karke dekho
kisi pe marke dekho
mohabbat aag bhar de
ke patthar mom kar de
ooo
jab tak dil par chot na khaaye
pyaar ki manzil koi na paaye
tum dikhlaa do pyaar ki manzil
apni samajh mein kuchh nahin aaye

saathi mere ban jaana
samjhoge afsaana
saathi mere ban jaana
samjhoge afsaana
o jaane jaana pyaar ko na jaana
o jaane jaana pyaar ko na jaana
humse seekho pyaar ka jaadu chalaana aa
pehle aankh milaana,
phir gale se lagaana
samjhe
samajh gaya

jab se tum aayin zindgaani mein
lag gayi aag jaise paani mein
ek hulchal si ho gayi paida ha aa
meri khaamosh naujawaani mein

abhi toh ibtida hai
abhi dekha hi kya hai
mohabbat zindagi hai
mohabbat hi khuda hai
hoooo
lagti ho tum to pyaar ki devi
manmandir mein aan baso ji

aayi samajh mein pyar ki geeta
pyaar kiya bhagwan ko jeeta
main hoon tera deewaana
main hoon tera parwaana
main hoon tera deewaana,
main hoon tera parwaana
o jaane jaana pyaar maine jaana
o jaane jaana pyaar maine jaana

humse sikho pyar ka, jaadu chalaana aa
pehle aankh milaana
phir gale se lagaana
phir gale se lagaana

Hullo to all Atulwaale

Majrooh Sultanpuri was an Urdu poet and also a lyricist or song writer for Bollywood movies. He was born in 1919 in Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh as Asrar ul Hassan Khan to a father who was a police officer. His father, though, a police officer, was not too keen on his son receiving English education and Majrooh was therefore sent for traditional ‘Madrasa education’ which led to his obtaining the qualification first of Dars-e-Nizami – a seven-year course which concentrated on religious affairs along with proficiency in Arabic and Persian- and then the certificate of Alim.(Personally, I don’t know what Alim is). He thereafter joined Lucknow’s Takmeel-ut-Tib College of Unani. He was a struggling Hakim when he happened to recite one of his ghazals at a mushaira in Sultanpur. The ghazal was a hit with the audience and Majrooh decided to drop his fledgling medical practice and began writing poetry seriously. Soon he was a ‘regular’ at mushairas and a “shagird” i.e. disciple of the then top name in Urdu Mushairas viz: Jigar Moradabadi.

While Majrooh is popular as a film lyricist and is widely known in that capacity, be it known that he also created one of the best-known verses of Urdu poetry, “Main akela hee chala tha janibe manzil magar, log saath aate gaye aur carvan banta gaya!” (I set off alone towards the destination but people joined in and soon it became a caravan!) Majrooh Saab (I think that is how an elder should be addressed) visited Bombay (now Mumbai) to attend a Mushaira where producer A.R. Kardar was part of the audience. He contacted Majroohsaab through Jigar Moradabadi and offered him a chance to write for movies which Majroohsaab refused as he didn’t think highly of them. But he relented on Jigar Moradabadi’s persuasion. Kardar then took him to Naushadsaab who tested whether Majrooh, gave him a tune and asked him to write something to fit that and Majrooh returned with “Jab Usne Gesu Bikhraye, Badal Aaye Jhoom Ke”; Naushad was impressed and they worked together in Majrooh’s first movie “Shahjehan” in 1946.So that then was Majrooh’s entry into movies. His work lasted well into the next millennium with movies that had songs penned by him releasing as late as 2004 – a forgettable masala movie “Ek se Badkar Ek” had “aankhon hi aankhon mein yeh kya baat ho gayi” which was penned by Majroohsaab. And I must say the song was good inspite of the movie.

A small trivia here: 2011 had a movie called “Soundtrack” which had my favourite Majrooh song of all times “ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke” and the makers of this movie were decent enough to give credit to Laxmi-Pyare and Majroohsaab.

In his long innings in Bollywood he had associated with the father S D Burman from “Paying Guest” (or even before that) to “Abhimaan” and with the son R D Burman we had albums like “Caravan” “Yaadon Ki Baraat”“Teesri Manzil” and all the etceteras that anyone cares to add. Majroohsaab also had association with another father -son pair. Can anyone forget “rahe na rahe hum mehka karenge” or “ab kya misaal doon mein tumhare shabab ki” with Roshan’s music? His work with Roshan’s son Rajesh Roshan is nothing less and equally popular. If I am not wrong the association started with “Kunwara Baap” in 1974 and went on with works like “Udhar ka Sindoor’’ “Jay Vijay’’ “Inkaar’’ –remember ’’tu mungda mein gud ki dali’’ was from the pen of Majroohsaab, unbelievable no? the 2001 release “Mujhe meri biwi se bachaao” was the last time Rajesh Roshan got to work with Majroohsaab. Of course, we cannot forget all the other albums the two have associated for in the intervening years – “Doosra Aadmi” “Janta Hawaldaar” “Ek baap chhe bete” etc.

“Doosra Aadmi” was a movie that was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Ramesh Talwar. This was Ramesh Talwar’s debut as director. It was written by Raju Saigal and Sagar Sarhadi and had a cast of Rakhee, Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Parikshat Sahni, Satyen Kappu, Deven Verma, Gita Siddharth, Sheetal etc.

Atulji has posted the first song from this movie in 2008. He had given a brief of the story in that post. He followed it up with a post that had Deven Verma singing a beautiful song.

Here is the next song from this movie which was requested by someone called Bharati in the comments section to the song “Kya Mausam hai”. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It is more of a background song played at a house-party and Rakhee and Rishi waltz to the tune in a dimly lit room with Parikshat Sahni looking not-so-approvingly as he is the only person who knows that Rakhee is looking for Shashi Kapoor in Rishi Kapoor.

Today on the occasion of Majrooh saab’s remembrance day and Rajesh Roshan’s 64th birthday a song they gave us in 1977 i.e. 42 years back.


Song-Aao manaayen jashne mohabbat (Doosra Aadmi)(1977) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan
Both

Lyrics

Aaa
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

hamaari tamanna tumhen pyaar karna
hamein aur karna kya
hamein aur karna kya
mohabbat mein ruswa
huye bhi toh kya hai
duniya se darna kya

aage koyi ilzaam nahin hai
chaahat ke ilzaam ke baad
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthaayen jaam ke baad
aao manaayen

yeh aalam hai jaise
udda jaa raha hoon
tumhein leke baahon mein
tumhein leke baahon mein

tumhaare labon se
hamaare labon tak
nahin koyi raahon mein
kaise koyi
abb dil ko sambhaale
itne haseen paighaam ke baad

aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

Dedication 🙂

This article is dedicated to ‘males’ who are good at cooking, are good chefs (the professionals) 🙂 , and the non-professionals who can cook well for themselves (for their wives (sometimes) (?), and for their family members and/or friends 🙂 as and when required. 🙂
Also I would like to express my gratitude to all females too who cook food for their family members and do all the hard work to ensure the family members get to ‘eat’ and are’ happy’. 🙂

***
I salute to all of them and wish I could also try and be like them and learn cooking. :).

I hope from the above statements nobody gets confused and misunderstands me if I am going to write about ‘cooking’ only and how it is going to be getting connected with a song, as, after all, this is a blog to present songs. 🙂

Yes, we are definitely going to enjoy a song which in my childhood was frequently heard on radio and so I was longing to share it here …

***
I was thinking about writing on this subject for almost two to three years. This kept getting delayed for one reason or the other…
Also this subject came to my mind because I am not good at cooking and had always found it as ‘boring’ or ‘burdensome’.

***

When I was about twenty I had to leave home and parents for my job and this was the first time that I was going to be staying alone without family members and so I would be without home cooked food by Mother who normally cooked for all of us at home. It was the first time for me when I faced this situation of having to cook food for myself.

My mother was also a working woman, so I remember that sometimes we three brothers used to assist her in some small things like sometimes getting coal for the ‘sigri’ and arranging it till it got ignited and hot enough to cook food. Sometimes we used to collect wood for burning. Those were the days and my childhood was like that, until cooking gas come to our home finally may be in 1985-86 I think.
But, I must also mention here that my Father was good at cooking some special dishes but it depended on his mood- viz on some special occasion or when the situation so0 demanded :).

I had to leave my parents as I took up a job and started to live with my other bachelor colleagues and so the ‘cooking’ phase of my life began for me. My colleagues wondered how come I was so ignorant of this matter and why I had never been to a ‘hostel’. To my sensitive soul, it appeared as if I was being held guilty of a ‘big crime’ or ‘big sin’. 🙂

Slowly they took pity on me and started teaching me the basics of coolikng viz chopping of vegetables starting with ONIONS first, which was enough to bring ‘tears to my eyes’. 🙂

When we used to get late from work and cooking at home was not possible we had to eat in Hotels and that resulted in ‘food poisoning’ and ‘diarrhoea’ on several occasions.

We used to have this ‘rice thali’ in ‘Madras Hotel’ at Kota where I was a regular monthly member. I ate there for almost 6/7 years till I get married 🙂

Before marriage I had already learnt to cook a few dishes well and also ‘cleaning’ of utensils (even now I can do this work whenever my wife wants me to her her in cooking. :). I consider cleaning and washing easier than cooking.

Nevertheless I was very good at and keep improving in one area, viz making good ‘tea’ (‘kadak chaai’).

During those ‘bachelor days’ in the morning after waking up the first thing I would look for was ‘ek cup garam chaai’. In cse I was unable to get it for reasons such as someone forgetting to buy the necessary stock of provisions to make tea, then that would spoil my morning.

On one such instance when I wanted to have a ‘cup of tea’ but found the ‘tea powder’ (tea leaves) was out of stock!!
I think I left office a little earlier that day , determined to buy the grocery first so I bought Tea powder – one kg :). My colleageus found it amusing when they knew this reason for my leaving early in the morning. 🙂

During my stay at Kota,I often had to change accomodation as my colleagues would get transferred to other sites. I had developed a group of friends who use to cook occasionally. I learnt to cook ‘mixed Punjabi daal’ from them and I used to give the ‘daal’ a good ‘chhonka’. I also learnt the chemistry of ‘rice & water’ and there were some ‘thumb rules’ that our neighbours staying there taught to us.
One of my friend from Indore was expert in making perfect ‘round chapaatis’ and we were very happy for that, his only condition was he would eat rice daily since he was habitual of that because of his stay in interior Andhra Pradesh for some time.

This cycle of ‘cooking’ for self, or eating out and risking health, and hiring a maid to cook, later on sharing cooking activities with friend, again going back and joining hotels on monthly basis to eat ‘rice plate’ (which normally in Maharashtra means having chapati, rice, dal, sabzi etc etc) continued for five-six years till I got married.

After my marriage sometimes I had cooked ‘mixed Punjabi daal’ for my wife and this remains my favourite.

As years passed I again got disconnected from the ‘cooking habits’ and was only restricted to making Tea, since I used to have two three cups Tea in the morning and sometimes a cup in the evening too after coming back from work to home.
Later on in the morning we agreed that the first ‘tea’ would be served by my wife, the second by me and the third turn – if required – would again be by her with breakfast. 🙂

Other than this the routine continues where my wife has to do everything for all of us but now my daughters have also taken up helping their mother in cooking …

After getting married there were instances in the initial years when my wife was with my parents and I was at project sites and so she would stay with them for a few months because ‘bade bete ki shaadi ke baad garb mein bahu aayi hai to …’
After all she was the ‘badi bahu’ and since I had no sisters a new female member was welcomed with warmth and love …

Well, life is an on-going process with only ‘change’ being the only constant and we never know what life has in store for us in future …

After a few years, it so happened that I visited Mumbai for our Atulites gang-out and had to stay with our ‘Maha Guru’ at his home in Mumbai. I was feeling very great and very fortunate, but then I was very very blessed when I got to eat food cooked by our ‘Maha Guru’ himself and I was really feeling ashamed on my laziness once again (because ‘apni galti par pachhtaana har insaan ka farz hai, lekin ye pachchhataap kuchh kshnon ke liye rehta hai 🙂 ) and I decided that when our ‘guru’ in his seventies can do ‘cooking’ why not me?, and so as usually I decided that I will cook myself for my wife … or at least start helping her in domestic works :).

The ‘gang out’ was in November’16 and it so happened that the next month on the first day of the next new year I and my wife travelled to Anand to see my daughters and while she will stay there with my daughters I will visit to Khandwa for my official works and return to Nagpur.
Now the real ‘test’ was after my reaching at Nagpur!!

As was usual for me, I ate out in nearby hotels for a couple of days and then I decided that ‘now I should take inspiration from our ‘Maha Guru’ and other ‘Gurujis’ and resolved to cook for myself-at least dinner in the evening.
It was decided that I would make a video call to my wife every evening after I finalised the menu and do the preliminary cleaning chopping of ingredients as required and keep ready the basic ingredients nearby …

And thus, started my ‘online learning for cooking’ course and every day I used to call my wife in the evening after initial preparations of the menu I wish to have that evening …
This time the ‘judaai’ was longer for almost a month a little over one month …

I learnt a great deal from her in this distance learning course.

Sometimes whenever she is not feeling well, I would first suggest her to order food from outside to have a change … but then she would come up with ‘kitna achchaa hota agar koi khaana banaake mujhe khilaaye’.

So, I would suggest to her that I would cook if she allowed me … she put us a great resistance the first time.

‘Rehne do, mujhe kuchh achchha khaane ka man kar rahaa hai, aap ke haath se wo swaad nation aayega’ 🙂 ‘main khud hi banaa deti hoon’, ‘Aap agar ho sake to wo saaf-safaai kar dena bas’ 🙂 …

Now, away from our country and home and ‘ghar ka khaana’, I am missing it all. Though we are getting ‘Indian Food’ to eat here (in our Camp) and some of us (from Bihar) are also good at cooking we get to eat ‘litti chokha’ ‘samosas’ ‘jalebi’ on special occasions, it can never be a substitute for the real thing. …

All those fond memories of having food at home since childhood keep haunting me nowadays and also I also remember how once in my childhood I refused to eat ‘aaloo ki bhaaji’ and was ‘scolded’ and ‘slapped’ by my father.

The movie …

‘Wafaa-1972’ was directed by Ramanna for R.R.Pictures, Bombay.

It had Sanjay, Rakhi, Hina Kausar, Nazeer Hussain, Joginder, Krishan Dhawan, Naaz, Sunder, Sulochana Chatterjee, Anwar Ali, Padma Khanna, Prem Kumar, Swaraj, Jayshree T, Kalavati, Deshpande, Shabnam, Puranik, Anand,

Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath, Bipin Gupta, Madan Puri, Sapru had friendly appearance in this movie.

Lyrics for all the five songs (as per HFGK Vol V) were written by Rajinder Krishan and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Manna Dey have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

With today’s song this movie ‘Wafaa-1972’ is making its debut on the blog.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.03.1972.

Almost forty seven years back …

(We already have ‘Wafa-1950’ movie already on the blog, this ‘Wafaa-1972’ joins its company)

There is another song from the 1973 movie ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ ‘daal roti khaao prabhu ke gun gaao’ which along with the today’s song had been in my memory since childhood, the reason may be that they were frequently played on ‘radio’ in those years…
I was also surprised that the song being presented today had not been posted on the blog so far.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song where in the first half the husband is trying to cook for his wife but as usual surrenders finally 

Today (13 february 2019) also happens to be the ‘World Radio Day’ and this one ‘from radio days’ will definitely bring back memories of those days for many. 🙂

Blog Day : 3790 Post No. : 14774

Hullo to Atuldom

At the outset let me wish our friend of Atuldom “A very Happy Birthday” and lotsa of love and joy forever. Let her always be a mystery (paheli); atleast till I meet her personally. But from accounts about her that Sudhirji had once shared on the blog and Atulji’s had written in his post I am very eager to meet her. Till then I will be content with the occasional telephonic chat or WhatsApp masti that we indulge in. Wish you a very Happy Birthday Khyatiji. Have a great day musical day.

“Amir Garib” is a movie I have seen ages back at the time it was released. I have very foggy memory of the contents, only thing I recollect is both Dev Anand and Hema play petty thieves in addition to picking each other’s pockets, and sing the same song one after the other i.e. “soni aur moni ki hai jodiajeeb” has two versions that follow each other in quick succession, in Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Also, I recollect how gorgeous and petite Hema lookedand Dev Anand’s style of dressing, and dancing.

For the plot content I consulted the WIKI and this is what I found :-

The film starts with Mumbai police officials deliberating how to crack a spate of robberies targeting the rich in the city by a masked thief called Bagula Bhagat. Inspector Anand (Sujeet Kumar) is given charge of the case.
Meanwhile, one gets to see musician and singer, Manmohan, alias Moni, working in a hotel owned by Seth Daulatram (Premnath) who is pursued by Sunita aka Soni, a pickpocket, who lives with her foster mother (Sulochana). In fact, Sunita’s rich businessman father died when he was duped by his treacherous manager, Daulatram.

Actually, Bagula Bhagat is Moni in disguise, whose informers (including Birbal and Tuntun) garner information about the misdeeds of unscrupulous traders and businessmen. These then become the target of Bagula Bhagat, who robs them of their riches only to distribute among the poor and the needy. Moni’s heart beats for the ill trodden after a childhood incident, in which his grandfather was killed by a ruthless landowner, who not only belittles him for his poverty, and mocks him about Moni’s mother having been duped by a rich man.

After a series of incidents-some interesting, others outright boring and outlandish Moni and Soni agree to teach Seth Daulatram a lesson for his misdeeds. But before that, Moni comes to know that Soni’s foster mother is actually his mother and that inspector Sujeet Kumar is the fiancé of his foster sister. The film ends after a courtroom drama, in which the judge tries Bagula Bhagat for his misdemeanours. Does the judge take a lenient view of Moni’s plea for rights of the poor? Or is he delivered a harsh punishment?

Lets have this party song today to celebrate our Khyatji’s birthday. It has the normal masala movie setup of a climax song, with the villain (Premnath) bringing in the heroine’s mother (Sulochana) as his hidden trump to thwart the hero and heroine in their mission. We have Ranjeet playing Premnath’s chamcha.

This song also shows Dev Anand in the style he was known for after the advent of colour in movies.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Last year on this date, post our Avadh Lalji had asked in the comments “I wonder whether it is a deliberate omission on your part to exclude many of her successful films she has done with the Millennium Star as also his name from the list of her leading co-stars?”

My answer to this was “You are right about not mentioning Amitabh. Because that is my normal habit. Posting a common song also. And I forgot to put in the disclaimer… Errors and omission to be excused.”

This year too I am attempting a similar post today (10 october 2018). A Rekha song with another superstar/ actor of those times. Two movies of Rekha with this smart, handsome, he-man (so many adjectives) released in 1973. They have co-starred in about twelve movies in the 70s to the late 80s out of which they made a pair in six. Their pairing was as good, eye- soothing and well received as say Amitabh- Rekha or Jeetendra- Rekha or Vinod Mehra- Rekha. They came together after a gap of 29 years this year when Rekha made an appearance in a song that plays with the end credits of the movie. The song paid a salute to all things that this He-Man actor is known for and I went to see the movie for old times’ sake. Review about that on a later date.

Today’s song is from the 1984 released “Jhootha Sach” which was produced by A.G. Nadiadwala and directed by Esmayeel Shroff. The songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman was the music director.

It told the story of Vijay (Dharmendra) who is bringing up his son and daughter with the help of a nanny (Lalitha Pawar) after the death of his wife. But the children miss a mother’s presence and so with the help of their nanny find a mother for themselves and wife for their father. They pack the two off to a honeymoon. On their way back, the father is killed now the new mother is unable to break the news to the kids. But she is lucky to find a person who looks exactly like Vijay only he is a tough goon. The rest of the movie is full of the twists and turns that are regular fare in Bollywood movies.

This movie came 10 years after the Dharam- Rekha blockbuster “Kahaani Kismat Ki”. The ordinary looking Rekha of KKK had undergone a transformation and learnt the art of looking gorgeous. Possibly she had taken a few tips from various quarters on how to present herself. The transformation was slow as can be seen in her movies that released post 1976 when she stopped being a gawky teenager and entered her 20s. Today’s song seems to be a question that she is putting to the audience in the guise of asking her hero. “Kaisi lag rahi hoon main?” If you ask me her eternal fan she was gorgeous then and gorgeous now even when she is 60+.

Wishing her on her birthday today (10 october 2018).

Blog Day : 3721 Post No. : 14656

By now it seems to have become a routine for me to make only cameos on this blog, triggered either by a memorable event (such as the blog’s tenth anniversary) or a “nudge” from another Atulite. 🙂

I will not seek to correct this impression – for the facts speak for themselves. I will also not make any excuse of “being busy” – that would only be an insult to people like Atul and Sudhir ji who manage to give so much time to the blog, despite so many demands on their time.

So no excuse – mea culpa. Today’s post is also a result of a nudge – this time from Peevisie’s Mom.

It happens to be the birthday of Feroz Khan today – and she called me up to remind me of it. A while ago, she and I had discussed that the popular song “Hamaare Siwa. . .” (‘Apradh’ – 1972) had not yet been posted on the blog – so she called up to remind me that there was an occasion coming up to remedy the situation. 🙂 So here is the post for this song – and to remember Feroz Khan.

I remember writing about Feroz Khan earlier – I think it was a couple of years ago. I haven’t checked that post – and am writing purely from my thoughts of the moment – so kindly excuse me if much of what I say is repetitive.

Feroz Khan, for me, has his own place in Hindi cinema. There are many who had a more successful career than Feroz. Certainly as an actor, he wasn’t rated all too highly, if I’m to be brutally honest. He had his moments, but one would have to be disingenuous about his acting achievements, to put him in the same league as at least a dozen other actors/stars.

And though he was very successful as a producer/director, there have been more successful producers / directors. And yet, for me, Feroz holds his own in Hindi cinema. As a personality, he seemed to me to have something about him that made him different from others. I think it was the way he carried himself.

Much of my exposure to Feroz was, of course, in the 1970s. By that time he had turned producer – so I got to see him both as actor and producer – in films like ‘Apradh’ (1972), ‘Dharmatma’ (1975) and ‘Qurbani’ (1980). All these films have one thing in common – they are all made on a grand scale, with no expenses spared, no corners cut in producing an extravagant spectacle for the audience. Naturally this became the image of Feroz Khan in my mind – and I think, for most people. His films are glamorous, with foreign locales, expensive cars and the like. Feroz seemed to revel in this flamboyant image – and continued it through the 1980s and 90s in films like ‘Janbaaz’ (1986), ‘Dayavan’ (1988) and ‘Yalgaar’ (1992).

If the films made by him are to be taken as representative of his life, one would not be mistaken in saying that Feroz lived life king-size. I enjoyed each one of these films – they were thoroughly entertaining, with a decent story line (which is very important for me!) and good songs too. Most of the songs of films made by Feroz became super-hits, suggesting he had a good ear for music.

And yet, for me, the story doesn’t end here. It is the first half of his career, so very different from the second half, that makes his story fascinating for me. Like I’ve said before, my clearest memories of Feroz are from his films of the 1970s. But he acted in many films in the 1960s too – and any reference to his work that does not mention this would be incomplete.

One of my friends once jokingly said “Feroz Khan probably got into producing his own films because he got fed up of never getting the heroine.” 🙂

Yes, said in jest, but it is true that in many of his films till he began making his own, Feroz missed out. In some early films, he was the villain – so then it’s understandable. But in many other films too, even as the good / semi-good guy, he would end up not getting the heroine. In ‘Oonche Log’ (1964), the heroine dies – in ‘Mela’ (1970), his character dies as he “sacrifices” for his brother. And in films like ‘Aarzoo’ (1965), ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969), ‘Safar’ (1970), ‘Upaasna’ (1971), the heroine loves the other guy. Small consolation maybe that in ‘Darinda’ (1977) he manages to turn the tables on Sunil Dutt for ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969). 🙂

Of course, that was how the script was written – but it always made me feel bad to see Feroz lose out. 🙂 , even though he’d occasionally get to sing lovely songs like “Darpan Ko Dekha. . .”  and “Jo Tumko Ho Pasand. . .” in the process. 🙂

Then there were those black-and-white films of the 60s. Many not well-known, probably then categorized as “B’’ films. Many with Mumtaz, herself then not in the A league. Having both gone through similar careers in the 60s, Feroz and Mumtaz were very good friends – and it’s hardly surprising that Mumtaz was his lead when he produced Apradh (1972).

One song from a Feroz “B” film I fondly remember is “Anjaan hai koi” (‘Anjaan Hai Koi’ – 1969). I think this song was quite popular in its time – at least I remember it from my childhood. Other less-known Feroz films I remember are ‘Ek Paheli’ (1971) with Tanuja (“Main Ek Paheli Hoon”) and ‘Anjaan Raahen’ (1974) with Asha Parekh (“Mujhe Nahin Poochhni Tumse Beeti Baatein”).

And of course, ‘Kashmakash’ (1973) and films like ‘Khote Sikke’ (1974) and ‘Kaala Sona’ (1975). The last-two were typical films that could have been made for Feroz – I remember enjoying both of them. 🙂

In general, I liked watching his films, especially of the 70s and later – they were never boring. Feroz himself, while never having pretensions to being a great actor, was fun to watch. And one of my favourite Rafisaab songs is picturised on him – “Jaag Dil-e-Deewaana”. 🙂 (‘Oonche Log’ – 1965).

So today, on his birthday, I have fond memories of Feroz Khan – and want to thank him for making entertaining films, with lovely songs. Today’s song is from ‘Apradh’ (1972) – the once very popular “Hamaare Siwa”. I remember listening to it a lot on radio at the time.

I saw the movie ages ago – sometime in the 70s. Have not seen it since, so I don’t remember anything of the story. I think it was something to do with smuggling, and had a lot of foreign locales, but sorry, I can’t remember any more than this. It’s surprising that in more than 10 years on this blog, the song hasn’t been posted yet. But better late than never, I guess.

So today, on Feroz Khan’s birthday, let’s all enjoy this song from his own film – the first film he produced/directed.

 

Song – Hamaare Siwa Tumhaare Aur Kitne Deewaane Hain (Apradh) (1972) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare?
haan tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
achha?
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

khoobsoorati aur wafaa
dekhi na donon ek jagah
haan haan dekhi na donon ek jagah
hote hain mard bade shakki
baat hai ye bilkul pakki
bholi si
aati ho nazar
haan haan bholi si
aati ho nazar
ho chanchal chaalaak magar
aurat ka dil jaane nahin
aap hamen pehchaane nahin
chhodo chhodo hum bhi sayaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

tum ho pareshaan kis gham se
raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
haan haan raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
apni kaho chhodo meri
karte ho kyon hera pheri
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
sab ko nishaana banaate nahin
khud harjaayee bhanwre ho tum
ek jagah kab thehre ho tum
chhodo chhodo hum to parwaane hain

hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
hmm
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain

हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं

हाँ तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं
कसम से किसी को नहीं मैं जानती

अरे छोड़ो छोड़ो ये तो बहाने हैं

खूबसूरती और वफा
देखी न दोनों एक जगह
हाँ हाँ देखी न दोनों एक जगह
होते हैं मर्द बड़े शक्की
बात है ये बिलकुल पक्की
भोली सी आती हो नज़र
हो चंचल चालाक मगर
औरत का दिल जाने नहीं
आप हमें पहचाने नहीं
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम भी सयाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

तुम हो परेशान किस ग़म से
राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
हाँ हाँ राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
अपनी कहो छोड़ो मेरी
करते हो क्यों हेरा फेरी
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
सबको निशाना बनाते नहीं
खुद हरजाई भँवरे हो तुम
एक जगह कब ठहरे हो तुम
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम तो परवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

Blog Day : 3669 Post No. : 14545

Hullo Atuldom

4th august 2018 marks the 89th birth anniversary of our beloved Kishore Kumar. 89- oh my god! How I wish Kishoreda had been around. The programme content of all TV or Radio channels would have gone overboard playing wonderful Kishore Kumar songs. And not only ones till 1988/89 (when the songs of “Mamta Ki Chaon Mein” were released) but we -his fans- would have had a lot more songs in Kishoreda’s voice.

But of course, with the available songs itself I am in a dilemma. We have around 2709 Hindi songs – both released and unreleased and short songs to choose from of which the blog has 1101 songs leaving us with very many songs.

The redoubtable Wikipedia has a few tables and going through them I am astonished. One table gives the number of songs that Kishoreda has sung with other singers and it is no surprise (to me) that Asha Bhonsle tops the list with 673 songs (I don’t think the number is of duets only, it could include multi-singer songs also) and among male co-singers Mohammad Rafi has sung 72 songs with Kishore da. I would love to know how many Kishore Kumar – Mohammad Rafi songs we have on the blog and how many of these are duets. Also, on going through the tables that I mentioned, I found that he has sung 73 songs composed by himself and worked with 110 music directors including himself. All these figures need not be accurate but give us a fair idea of what is left for us to look through to celebrate the birth anniversary.

But coming back to my dilemma- I have put a few pre-conditions regarding the song I choose to go with this post. First condition was it should not feature Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna or Amitabh Bachchan, I don’t know how many potential songs got left out due to this condition. Next, I felt it should be song that takes the movie one more step towards yyiippeeeeing- a not-so-difficult condition to meet. Then my final condition was to try and find a song which was on a character artist or supporting actor or some actor who is least expected to Lip Sync to Kishore Kumar.

And I found just the song I was looking for !

We all know that Kishore Kumar has sung songs for all moods and emotions. His voice when he sings romantic or sentimental songs is outstanding. I am not going to give a sample-list of his romantic/ sentimental songs, I am just going to the song which I have in my mind.

This is from the 1985 Yash Chopra produced and directed “Faasle”. It had about 10 songs 2 of which have been posted. It had Rohan Kapoor- Mahendra Kapoor’s son- making his debut along with Farha- Shabana Azmi’s niece. It also starred Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Farooq Shaikh, Deepti Naval and Raj Kiran. I have seen the movie at the time of its theatrical run and remember that most of the songs were romantic and shot among mountains, lakes or gardens with smoky or cloudy background the kind of weather that hill-stations are famous for. Sunil Dutt played father to his motherless daughter Farha; having lost his wife when the daughter was born. He doesn’t remarry but is in love with Rekha. Problems erupt when the daughter grows up and Rohan Kapoor walks into her life. Shahryar was the lyricist for the movie and Shiv-Hari the music directors. The movie and its songs were the perfect launch for any youngster of that period. It showed that the lead pair could ride horses, show full range of emotions etc.

Thus, I have a song which has fulfilled the three conditions I laid out and the best part is Mahendra Kapoor’s son lip-syncing to Kishore Kumar.

Wish Kishoreda was there to see how this set of Hindi film music crazy set is celebrating his birth anniversary.
