Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 12
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day in 2009, the film ‘Darling Darling’ made its debut on our blog. This 1977 production from Fortune Films International, has six songs. The song that brought in this film to our blog is the Kishore Kumar favorite – “Aise Na Mujhe Tum Dekho”.

Then, over the past decade, only one more song of this film was added. And now, in the 10 Year Challenge series, we are bringing on the third song of this film. An interesting side thought – maybe in the years to come, this blog and its data, relating to various stats, as well as patterns of how the films went from debut to yippee, will become fodder for PhD research projects at universities that have film studies departments. Research scholars will be analyzing such data to find correlations between the patterns of appearance of the songs of a film, and the perceived quality of its music, and its popularity curve. Interesting food for thought, right?

This 1977 film of Dev Anand, is not his own Navketan production. It was still the 1970s, and despite a descending graph, Dev Anand was still in demand enough to be called upon by other friendly production houses to play the lead role. In 1977, he was in his 54th year, and still going strong as the hero.

The film, from the banner of Fortune Films International, was directed by Gogi Anand. The star cast of this film reveals many a names which can be considered as fixtures in Dev Anand films; check out the names – Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Mehmood, Jeevan, Nadira, Dhiraj Kumar, Poonam, Durga Khote, Sajjan, Helen, Ranjan, Raj Verma, Shivraj, Shaifali, V Gopal, Jankidas, Hercules, Jhankna Desai, Geeta Khanna, Juliyan, Baby Guddi, Baby Padmini, Monto, Sheikh, Beerbal, Shahid Bijnauri, and Dhanna.

This song is performed in a mental asylum – a device that is used by directors to inject free format comic relief into the storyline. Dev Anand and Mehmood are leading the song performance. Dev Anand is sporting a full  beard as part of a disguise, and Mehmood appears in a tie and his birthday suit – well, almost 🙂 . As the song progresses, one realizes that they are on a search and rescue mission of some sort, as we see interludes of familiar faces as captives under duress. We get fleeting glimpses of Zeenat Aman, Sajjan and Nadira. We have already had a glimpse of Jeevan, in the very first scene of this song, leaving the premises with a large suitcase in his hand. One can also identify junior actor Sheikh, just behind Dev Anand and Mehmood, as the opening lines of this song are being rendered. I am sure there are more junior artists in this crowd of ‘mad’ persons which can be named, but I am not able to identify more.
[Note: Regulars will recall actor Sheikh – he has performed on screen, the iconic qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“, in the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958).]

The song is penned by Anand Bakshi and the music composition is by RD Burman. The singing voices are of Kishore Kumar and Mehmood.

This brings on the third song of this film – across a span of ten years. 🙂

ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला॰॰आ

ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला

हाहा हा हा हा हा हा
ये सच है
या फिल्मी गाना है

ये दुनिया क्या है
ये दुनिया पागलखाना है
अरे ये दुनिया क्या है
ये दुनिया पागलखाना है
पागलखाने के अंदर इक पागलखाना है
जितने बाहर हैं
उन को इक दिन अंदर आना है
ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला॰॰आ
ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला
अरे जितने बाहर हैं
उन को इक दिन अंदर आना है
है है है

कहीं ना कहीं
यहाँ या वहाँ
अरे कहाँ
वहाँ
यहाँ
वहाँ
यहाँ नहीं
वहाँ नहीं
वहाँ नहीं
यहाँ नहीं
वहाँ

जमुना के तीर
लैला को ढूँढे
जमुना के तीर
लैला को ढूँढे
जमुना के तीर
जमुना के तीर
जमुना के तीर
क्या बोलने का कमाल है सच्ची

इस दिल में
या इस घर में
इस दिल में
या इस घर में
कहीं ना कहीं
अरे आग लगी है

अरे धुआँ हि धुआँ हैं भई धुआँ

इस में सबको जल जाना है
पागलखाना है
अरे पागलखाने के अंदर इक पागलखाना है
के जितने बाहर हैं
उन को यक दिन अंदर आना है
ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला॰॰आ
ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला

हम प्रेमी हैं दीवाने नहीं हैं
हम पंछी हैं परवाने नहीं हैं
हम प्रेमी हैं दीवाने नहीं हैं
हम पंछी हैं परवाने नहीं हैं
हम उड़ जाएँगे
हमको जकड़ लो
ज़ंजीरें लाओ
लाओ लाओ
इनको जकड़ लो
जकड़ लो

मुश्किल हमको समझाना है
पागलखाना है
अरे पागलखाने के अंदर इक पागलखाना है
के जितने बाहर हैं
उन को यक दिन अंदर आना है
ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला॰॰आ
ओ लैला॰॰आ
तुझे ढूँढे तेरा छैला
