Today’s song is from the film “Hum bhi kuchh kam nahin” -1958.

The film, as per its story belongs to a Costume and imaginary genre, but HFGK mentions it as a ” Social ” film. I wonder why ? The cast of the film consisted of Ameeta, Ranjan, Sumitra, P. Kailash, Kanu Roy, Majnu, Ram Avtar, Manju and others. The 7 songs of this film were written by Anand Bakshi, Rahil Gorakhpuri, Kaif Irfani and Sharki Bhopali. The lyricist Rahil Gorakhpuri wrote 30 songs in 12 films from Sun to le haseena-58 to Aaja Sanam-75. In addition, as Anwar in the pair Javed-Anwar, he wrote songs in 8 films. Javed in this pair was Manohar Lal Khanna – father of Composer Usha Khanna. The Music Director for today’s film was S.D.Batish. The film was directed by Raman Desai.

Now, this name Raman Desai is a strong case of ” Same Name Confusion”, because there was another Hindi film Director Raman Desai operating during the same period. Their fathers’ names were different but never mentioned anywhere. Sometimes Raman Desai of today’s film was mentioned as Raman Lal Desai in the film credits-like this film. With this small clue, I found out information about these two film directors to differentiate them from each others. Here we go….
RAMAN (Lalbhai) DESAI

Ramanlal Lalbhai Desai was born on 6-9-1915 at Ahmedabad ( some sources indicate different year and place). His father was a Station master in the BBCI Railway ( Bombay-Baroda and Central India Railway). He was educated in Bombay and he studied up to Inter-Arts. He soon left his studies to work as an assistant cameraman and assistant Director, in Paramount Pictures for Thief of Baghdad-34. In 1935 he shifted to Ganesh Movietone but came back to Paramount. He was assistant director in Fairy of the flute-36, Guru Ghantal-37 ,Black ghost-37, Burqawali-36, Aladdin-33, Vagabond lover-38, Madhur bansari-39 etc. He co-directed films like Patriot-37, Darpan-41 and Mere Saajan-41, in Rex Pictures. He was a good editor and a musician.

He became a full fledged Director with Daughter of the jungle-42, Mohabbat ki jeet-43, Circus girl-43, Bhagata Bhoot-43, Rangila Dost-44, Aadhar-45, Qismat ka Dhani-46, Jadui putali-46, Tiger man-47, Naqli Heera-48, Dhanwale-48, Dilwale-48, Roshni-49,Sangeeta-50, Aab e Hayaat-55, Hum bhi kuch kam nahin -58, Minister-59 and Jalim tera jawab nahin-60. He turned to Gujarati films and directed Sole saaj singar-77 and Kul deepak-78.
He was working as a Production supervisor for the film Nastik-54 (credited).

(Thanks to Shri. Harish Raghuwanshi ji for some info used here along with my notes).

RAMAN (Bhimbhai) DESAI

Raman B Desai was born in Bilimora, Gujarat, on 28-4-1918. At the age of 20 years, he joined Wadia Movietone as an assistant Director. He assisted Director Chaturbhuj Doshi for quite some time.

He became an independent Director with Pehli Pehchan in 1947. Then came Narad Muni-49, Raja Harishchandra-52, Hari Darshan-53, Naag Panchami-53, Chakradhari-54, Rajyogi Bharthari-54, Navaratri-55, Waman Avatar-55, Ram Navami-56, Naag Mani-57, Chandi Pooja-57, Grihalaxmi-59 (he also produced it) and Amar jyoti-1965. He also directed 6 Gujarati films. Due to his expertise in religious films, he was known as ” King of Mythological Films”.

Raman B Desai expired on 22-12-1997. ( He should not be mistaken for another director Raman Lal Desai, who operated in the same period and directed films like Aab-e-Hayaat-55 and Sangeeta-50 etc).

The name KANU ROY in today’s film cast is another instance of ” Same name confusion “. There was a composer (and an actor also) by the name Kanu Roy who gave music in a few films. Most people and many internet sites, including IMDB, consider these two different persons as one and claim films for acting and music together, as if he was an actor and a composer – a Two In One person !

In Hindi films this happened routinely, but in the early era of Talkie films. Master Krishna rao, Vinayak rao Patwardhan, Master Mohammed, Badriprashad, Vithaldas Panchotiya etc can be quoted as actor/composers. Lately, only the name of Kishore Kumar comes to mind in this category, off hand. Let us see who these two Kanu Roys were…

Kanu Roy (the Actor) was in reality a name for Nalini Ranjan Roy, born at Jabalpore. He was very fond of acting and so landed at Bombay Talkies,a company started by 2 Benagalese- Himanshu Roy and Devika Rani. Those days many people from Bengal used to come to Bombay Talkies, but only the capable ones like Amiya Chakravarty, Shashadhar Mukherjee or Ashok Kumar etc could make their careers here. Kanu Roy started his acting career with the film Basant-1942. His name Nalini was sounding like a Girl’s name in Bombay ( there were already a dozen Nalinis working in films those days), so it was changed and he opted for Kanu, his pet name in the house. Thus Kanu Roy came into films. Due to his good looks, he even became a lead actor in a few films. Nazrana-46 (UR) was one such film where he was working opposite Kamini Kaushal. Kanu Roy worked in 46 films from 42 to 83 ( kisi se naa kehna). Kanu Roy also left Bombay Talkies along with S.Mukherjee and others and joined Filmistan. He was in many Filmistan films like, Mahal, Munim ji, Nastik, Naagin, Jagriti etc. He acted in a Bangla film ‘Samar’too in 1950.

The other Kanu Roy (MD) was an extremely talented music composer of Bengali and Hindi cinema during 1960s and 1970s.. An unsung hero of Indian cinema, despite giving some wonderful songs to Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey, he got very little opportunities in Hindi cinema. He composed songs for Basu Battacharya’s introspective trilogy on marital discord in an urban setting, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Avishkar’ and ‘Griha Pravesh’ in the 1970s, and best remembered for giving the last but finest songs to Geeta Dutt – Meri Jaan Mujhe Jaan Na Kaho, Koi Chupke Se Aake and Mera Dil Jo Mera Hota. Ironically she died 6 months after she made a comeback to playback singing for the last time.

Kanu Roy hailed from West Bengal. He was born on 9th December 1912, in a poor family in the outskirts of Kolkata. During his early days he worked as a welder at Howrah Bridge, engaged in repairing work of the bridge. He worked as an assistant to Salil Chowdhury during his early days. As a full-fledged music composer, Basu Battacharya introduced him to Hindi cinema through Uski Kahani in 1966. He gave some of the finest songs to Geeta Dutt such as three songs of Anubhav (her last and final recordings), Aaj Ki Kali Ghata of Uski Kahani etc. He also composed music for Shyamla, which was recensored as Woh phir na aayee in 1981. ‘Geeton Ki Duniya Mein Sargam’ and ‘Khali Pyala Dhundla Darpan’ of Sparsh, ‘Hasne Ki Chaah’ of Aavishkar and ‘Boliye Surilee Boliyan’ of Grihapravesh are memorable songs of Kanu Roy. He gave music to only 8 films, namely Uski kahani-66, Anubhav-71, Avishkar-74, umhara kallu-75, Mayuri-75, Shyamala-79, Griha Pravesh-79 and Sparsh-1980.

He passed away on December 20, 1981, aged 69. . A less-known but extremely talented music director, very little data is available about him on net, In his colleague Gulzar’s words he was a simple person with a humming song always on his lips, and that he never quarreled or mingled with others. Some people and sites describe him as Geeta Dutt’s brother, but he was not her brother. Her brother was Mukul Roy.

HUM BHI KUCHH KAM NAHEEN-1958 was a typical B grade film specially made for the front benchers. As these types of films go, it had a story of king, vazir, a rebel, a princess, a joker, stunt fight, few good songs and lot of big animals like,Horses,Elephants tigers etc.

The hero was Ranjan(Ramnarayan Venkatramana Sarma, born in Madras in 1918 and died in USA in 1983) whose name spelt lot of Sword fighting(in real life too Ranjan was an expert Sword fighter).His name guaranteed lot of fighting,stunts and duet songs around trees.In this film also all this was present.
The story, s/play and dialogues were by Ramprakash Ashk.The music was by S.D.Batish who started his singing career in 1944 and Composer career in 1948 with Chupke chupke.Then came Balma, Patjhad, Khush Raho, Bahu beti, betaab, Amar kirtan, Rooprekha, Haar jeet, Toofan, Deewar, Ek arman mera, Saajish, Tipu sultan, Jalim tera jawab nahin, etc. He gave music as Nirmal Kumar in Lal Nishan and Nakhrewali also.

Batish who shifted to UK in 1964,moved to Santacruz,California-USA,in 1970 till he died there in 2006.(He used to say,’ I shifted from Santacruz,Bombay to Santacruz USA’).

Usman(Ranjan) and Mamubhai(Majnu) were fast friends.Usman was a young manwho did nothing, Mamu was King’s employee.Yar Khan(P.Kailash) the evil and crook Vazir of the king was waiting for a chance to usurp the throne.He kidnapped Zubeida(Manju),sister of Usman and took her to his palace where she commits a suicide.Now Usman wants his revenge.

Princess Zarina(Ameeta) is returning from her hunting trip.She is attacked by Yarkhan’s goons,but Usman saves her.They dutifully fall in love and she promises to help him.When the y reach the palace Usman is attacked by Yar khan’s soldiers but is saved by Zarina.There is Salma(Sumitra) court dancer,who also loves Usman and promises her help.

Finally Yar khan, croockedly captures both Usman and the King and blackmails Zarina to marry him or else……
Salma,Mamubhai and other loyalists rescue Usman.There is a terrific Sword fighting(obviously to use Ranjan’s skills) in which Yar khan is killed by Usman.The king returns with a bandbaja and Usman gets the job of Vazir and princess Zarina as his salary.

Today’s song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhosle and obviously is a Road Show song. Enjoy….

8th September – Birthday of Asha Bhonsle
————————————————————-

There are 25 songs tagged as ‘Tasweer’ (https://atulsongaday.me/category/tasweer-song/) song in the blog. Some of the stellar songs have missed the tag and have given a miss to the tag of ‘Tasweer’. I have listed a few such songs which I can refer to off-hand:

Tasweer Banaata Hoon Tasweer Nahin Banti

Ye Zulf Kaisi Hai

I feel as if some more significant songs are missing from my list above as well as the tagged page. So, the list is incomplete.

A ‘tasveer’ is something which tells a story. Be it a still image, a painting, a motion picture or mural. Imaginary or factual, reflection in reverse or converse. Not always needing a camera to capture it, just a glance is indelible sometimes. Moments captured in memory forever.

Some old timers in the film industry refer to movie as a ‘Tasveer’. I have forever called movies as ‘picture’. We never went to see film or movie, it was always ‘picture’. Some convent educated friends referred to them as ‘movie’ and some Kendriya Vidayala aluminis called them films. This is my own experiences, not a comment on anyone word preferences. In Urdu print, it is ‘film’ and in Hindi it is called ‘chal chitra’ translated as moving picture. So, the films moved and talked and told stories. But to tell a story, sometimes a still image is also enough. Technically, film is a roll on which the reflections are captured. What we watch on the screen is a projection of images captured on film rolls.

On the other hand, sometimes the story a ‘tasveer’ tells is incomplete for being one dimensional. The scene, the background, lighting, the capturer’s intentions, all have an impact on the story it tells. Even a panoramic photo fails capture the photographer. So, the millennials invented ‘selfies’ so that they can capture their own stories.

In our times, we have seen numerous such photos which have made history, given cause to monumental events, made unknown non-entities of the world into famous people. Also, photos which captured the events for posterity, stills which make us wonder at the creativity and unfathomable and unrecordable capability of creator of such beauty, and fabulous natural phenomena. Over the decades, there have been photos of apathy of humans around the world, which made humanity hang its heads in shame. Glory, shame, pain, ecstasy, wonder, happiness, surprise, loss and victory and many more emotions and expressions are recorded.
The camera is mechanical equipment after all. It has no feelings, so no sympathy with the subject it is capturing. It also reveals things, the subject wants to hide sometimes. I must grant it, it is a capable equipment, it captures the expression in the eyes of the subject. Mischief, despair, jealousy, pain, love, gaiety, you name it, the camera has seen it all.

I am glad to report that sometimes in gathering of friends, we forget to take selfies or pics… then we lament it on whatsapp that we didn’t click any. Better leave somethings for the mind and heart to capture. Is there a hard disk which can store as much as a human mind?

The ‘tasveer’ category song being presented here is from the film “Basant” (1960). The following 11 songs of this film are already posted in the blog.

Out of 14 songs of this film, 11 are Rafi-Asha duets and trio with SD Batish. Remaining 3 are solos by Asha Bhonsle. Incidentally, I have noticed that in the blog we spell the surname of Asha as ‘Bhonsle’, where as every where else that I can see it is Bhosle. Eleven duets in a film is a record, second such record is in the film ‘Halla Gulla’ (1954), where this same pair is singing all 9 songs.

Here is the song to celebrate the 89th Birthday of Asha Bhonsle, penned by Shewan Rizvi and composed by OP Nayyar.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 71

This date ten years ago (viz 19 July 2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Dil Ka Raaja -1972#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Dil Ka Raaja’.

This is another movie which I came across while presenting the ‘missing movies of 1972’ on the blog. Though this movie made its debut on the blog way back on 14.10.2014, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog. I do not remember to have listened to other songs from this movie. That is the reason for this post where today we will enjoy the second song from this movie.

Music for this movie is also composed by R.D. Burman.

‘Dil Ka Raaja-1972’ was directed by P. Madhwan for ‘Nadiadwala Associates, Bombay’. It was produced by A.A. Nadiadwala.

It had Raj Kumar, Leena Chandavarkar, Ajit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Indrani Mukherjee, Randhir, Meena T., Sheikh, Surendra Rahi, Manjeet, Omkar, Pandit Iqbal, Jankidas, Uma Dutt, Rajesh, Maqbool, Master Anil, Master Ripal, and Waheeda Rehman (in special appearance).

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Balamurugan. Dialogues of this movie were written by Kaushal Bharti.

Editing of this movie was done by Babubhai Thakkar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.11.1972.

As I mentioned above one song from this movie has been posted on the blog earlier and that was presented by Shri Satyajit Rajurkar on the blog.

In his post (which is his passionate post about Rafi Saab) he had also mentioned about the story of this movie which I am reproducing below from his post.

This movie is about two brothers who try to retrieve the lost glory of their “king” father through hard work and sincerity. After generously donating all the wealth accumulated by three generations of his family, Ramnagar-based Raja Vichitra Singh (Raaj Kumar), faces humiliation at the hands of Thakur Gajendra Singh (Ajit) when he is unable to pay a dowry for his sister, Gauri (Indrani Mukherjee). He does fulfill his promise by mortgaging his mansion, Raghupathi Bhavan, but the shock kills his wife, Lakshmi (Waheeda Rehman). Humiliated, with no one coming forward to help him, he leaves Ramnagar, along with his three children, Raja (Raaj Kumar), Bajrang (Jagdedep), and Vijaya (Meena T) and re-locates to Bombay, hoping to accumulate Three Lakh Rupees, so that he can get the Bhavan back as well as restore his honour. The rest of the story is about how Vichitra Singh, now a tonga driver and his children, who end up working as a coolies and labourers, try and save the money to enable them to get the mansion back.

The movie is a remake of the A Nageshwar Rao starrer “Dharma Daata” (1970).

‘Dil Ka Raaja’ had five songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Sundar hoon aisi main jidhar chaloon Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Sundar ho aisi tum jidhar chalo ek baar Mohd Rafi
03 O rajeshwari … badi hai shohrat tumhaare honthhon tumhaari aankhon ki Mohd Rafi,Asha Bhonsle
04 Jinke paas haathi ghoda, unke paas dil hai thodaa Rafi, Asha,Manna Dey
05 Jaao jaao tum bhi jaao, samajhte kya ho Mohd Rafi 14.10.2014

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is performed by two pairs i.e. Raj Kumar – Leena Chandavarkar, and Jagdeep – Bindu. (Rajkumar and Jagdeep play brothers in this movie).

This is a nice entertaining song sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhonsle. I hope readers will enjoy listening and watching this song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.

awaaz de ke ea
awaaz de ke
jo roke zamaana
zamaane ki baaton
mein hargiz na aana
aankhon mein aankhen
baahon mein baahen
daale huey saathh chalte hi jaana
tera pyaar hi to
meri zindagi hai
tera pyaar hi to
meri zindagi hai
ye waada raha dilruba
ye waada raha dilruba
qadmon mein tere
jannat hai meri
ho ke rahoongi
hamesha main teri
ye waada aa aa
ye waada raha saajna
ye waada raha saajna
saajna
ye waada raha saajna
saajna
ye waada raha saajna

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 14#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Rut Rangeeli Aayee’ of the year 1972. This movie is one those still missing movie for the year 1972 on the blog. Today it makes its debut here.

‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’ was directed by SM Pushkarna for Roshan Films, Bombay. It had Kanan Kaushal, Vijay Sharma, Jayshree T, Bharat Bhushan, Shyama, Brahmachari, Rehman, Nana Palsikar, Ramesh Deo, Madan Puri, Jagdish Malhotra, Bahri, Master Ratan and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.10.1972.

The film has four songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Tajdar Taj – two songs each. Music of this film was composed by Ratnadeep-Hemraj. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

 

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Husha Hayya, Sha Shaiyya…Shola Hoon Jawaan Asha Bhonsle, Chorus Hasrat Jaipuri
02 Koyi Chal Diya, Koyi Rah Gayaa Akela Mohd Rafi, Chorus Hasrat Jaipuri
03 Ek Zaraa Sa Kaam Karo, Bolo Bolo, Aaj Yahaan… Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle Tajdar Taj
04 Leke Main To Champaa Chameli Baabu, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle Tajdar Taj

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip synced by Brahmachari and Jayshree T. The song happens to be a stage drama song. However, since the movie is not available it is difficult to say in what context this song happens in the movie.

‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’ is an obscure movie of its time. Though video of couple of its song are available. But the movie seems to be unavailable, or I could not find it.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Aaj To Mera Ho Ja Tu“, from movie ‘Ratna Daaku’ to today’s movie song-post.

Lyrics

champaa chameli motiya leke aayi phoolonwaali

o mere dilbar chhaliya
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya

haaye ae
champa ya chameli na man bhaaye
champa ya chameli na man bhaaye
gori tera komal badan bhaaye
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o
jawaani kar de mere naam
o meri chhammak chhallo o o

gajrey
kharido gajrey
in bheeni
pyaari kaliyon le
arey chakkar
lagaaye barson
maine sajani
teri galiyon ke
meri galiyon ke na phere karna
rapat likhwa doongi teri warna
leke main to champa
aa ha

aa ha
ho leke main to champa chameli baabu
raste mein khadi hoon akeli baabu
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya
laga de in kaliyon ke daam
o mere dilbar chhaliya

haaye

nahin hain kaabu
kaisaa jaadu
tu ne kar daalaa

arey doongi
thhapede kas ke
aayaa majnu

tere sab nakhre hain
thhode din ke
ho loonga saare badle

champa ya chameli na man bhaaye
gori tera komal badan bhaaye
