Skipping the letter ‘फ’ – no more songs available as applicable this series, starting with this letter. We come to ‘ब’.

This song from the obscure 1958 film ‘Sun To Le Haseena’, is an unfamiliar but a very lovely melody from the mind of S Mohinder. The film is a social drama coming from the famous Filmistan Studios, Bombay, and is directed by SP Bakshi. The Geet Kosh lists seven songs for this film. These seven songs are written by four songwriters – Saarshaar Sailiaani, Rahil Gorakhpuri, Anand Bakshi and Kaif Irfani. Today’s song is penned by Anand Bakshi. The music director is S Mohinder. Singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle.

The cast of actors for this film is listed as Shashikala, Ravindra Kapoor, Agha, P Kailash, Badri Prasad, Randhir, Gulab, Sabita Chatterjee, Kanu Rai, Manju, Manohar Geer, Vitthal Das Panchotia, Madhu Apte, Ramlal, Leela, Bazid Khan, Rajeshwar Singh, Noor, Chandramohan, Pathak, Shantaram, Ravi Tandon, Sundar, Pal.

The leading man Ravindra Kapoor, younger brother of actor Kamal Kapoor, belongs to the Kapoor family, and is a first cousin of the Raj Kapoor generation. Folks will remember Nasir Hussain’s 1971 film ‘Caravan’. In this film, Jeetendra has two assistants / cleaners in his truck business. One is Junior Mehmood, and the other is Ravindra Kapoor. Ravindra Kapoor did not make a successful and popular career in Hindi films as a leading hero. However, he was quite a hit in Punjabi films in 1960s, and was a very popular leading man in that time. Some of his Punjabi films include ‘Sherni’  (1973), ‘Kankan De Ohle’  (1970), ‘Dupatta’  (1969), ‘Mukhra Chan Warga’  (1969), ‘Paun Baran’  (1969), ‘Punjabi Munda’  (1968), ‘Pind De Kuri’ (1967), ‘Khed Preetan Di’  (1967), ‘Neem Hakeem’  (1967), ‘Kunwari’  (1966), ‘Gabroo Desh Punjab De’  (1966), ‘Laiye Tod Nibhaiye’  (1966), ‘Shokan Mele Di’  (1965), ‘Saat Saaliyan’  (1964), ‘Mere Haaniyan’  (1963), ‘Pardesi Dhola’  (1959), ‘Chambe Di Kali’ etc.

From 1970 onwards, he is known better by the name Goga Kapoor. In Hindi films, as per the Geet Kosh listings (till 1980), he has appeared in 20 films (there are more films listed post 1980 when we check online), of which about 7 or 8 are as leading man, opposite to heroines like Shashikala, Ameeta and Indrani Mukherjee. In the remaining appearances, he is in character artist roles. In his later years, he was doing more villain and gangster type roles. He passed away in 2011.

[Note: With tongue in cheek, I reveal my personal connection to this clan. My mother’s second cousin on her maternal side of the family (from Simla) is/was married to Ravindra Kapoor. 🙂 ]

The song is sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. It is a lively nok-jhonk exchange between lovers. Only the audio of this song is available, so it is not possible say who has sung it on screen. It could be Ravindra Kapoor and Shashikala, or it could be Agha, and one of the supporting ladies. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

Listen to this racy song. Peevesie’s Mom commented earlier today that “. . . josh which only Mohd. Rafi could bring to a song no matter who is lip syncing.” So true, the one and only Rafi Sb.
Enjoy this song.

Song – Baanke Teerandaaz Jaan Le Le Na Ho Naraaz  (Sun To Le Haseena) (1958) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – S Mohinder

Lyrics 

hoy baanke teerandaaz
jaan le le na ho naraaz
o baanke teerandaaz
jaan le le na ho naraaz
nazron waala teer
maar dil chiir
chhod ye naaz
arre jaa re dhokhebaaz
maut ko de na tu awaaz
arre jaa re dhokhebaaz
maut ko de na tu awaaz
kar doongi main shor
chhed na aur
baaz aa baaz
arre waah re waah
baanke teerandaaz
jaan le le na ho naraaz

maan bhi ja ik baar mila ke aankh zara tu has de
chaahe phir apni zehreeli zulfon se tu das de
haaye das de das de das de
oy
yun na mujhko tok
raasta tu na mera rok
yun na mujhko tok
raasta tu na mera rok
kar doongi main shor
chhed na aur
baaz aa baaz
achha
baanke teerandaaz
jaan le le na ho naraaz

door door se baat mohabbat waali kar le kar le
mujhse kuchh na poochh tujhe marna hai to le mar le
arre mar le mar le mar le
arre waah re waah
waah meri sarkaar
rooth ke hoga kaise pyaar
waah meri sarkaar
rooth ke hoga kaise pyaar
nazron waala teer
maar dil chiir
chhod ye naaz
hoy jaa re dhokhebaaz
maut ko de na tu awaaz

haaye ghazab ki cheez hai tu kyon tadpaaye tarsaaye
yun na mujhko ghoor mujhe kuchh ho na jaaye haaye
aji haaye haaye haaye haaye
haaye haaye
o sadqe main qurbaan
chhod sharmaana meri jaan
o sadqe main qurbaan
chhod sharmaana meri jaan
nazron waala teer
maar dil chiir
chhod ye naaz
jaa re dhokhebaaz
maut ko de na tu awaaz
jaa re dhokhebaaz
maut ko de na tu awaaz

होय बाँके तीरंदाज़
जान ले ले ना हो नाराज़
ओ बाँके तीरंदाज़
जान ले ले ना हो नाराज़
नज़रों वाला तीर
मार दिल चीर
छोड़ ये नाज़
अरे जा रे धोखेबाज़
मौत को दे ना तू आवाज़
अरे जा रे धोखेबाज़
मौत को दे ना तू आवाज़
कर दूँगी मैं शोर
छेड़ ना और
बाज़ आ बाज़
अरे वाह रे वह
बाँके तीरंदाज़
जान ले ले ना हो नाराज़

मान भी जा इक बार मिला के आँख ज़रा तू हस दे
चाहे फिर अपनी जहरीली ज़ुल्फों से तू डस दे
हाए डस दे डस दे डस दे
ओय
यूं ना मुझको टोक
रस्ता तू ना मेरा रोक
यूं ना मुझको टोक
रस्ता तू ना मेरा रोक
कर दूँगी मैं शोर
छेड़ ना और
बाज़ आ बाज़
अच्छा
बाँके तीरंदाज़
जान ले ले ना हो नाराज़

दूर दूर से बात मोहब्बत वाली कर ले कर ले
मुझसे कुछ ना पूछ तुझे मारना है तो ले मर ले
अरे मर ले मर ले मर ले
अरे वाह रे वाह
वाह मेरी सरकार
रूठ के होगा कैसे प्यार
वाह मेरी सरकार
रूठ के होगा कैसे प्यार
नज़रों वाला तीर
मार दिल चीर
छोड़ ये नाज़
होय जा रे धोखेबाज़
मौत को दे ना तू आवाज़

हाए ग़ज़ब की चीज़ है तू क्यों तड़पाये तरसाये
यूं ना मुझको घूर मुझे कुछ हो ना जाये हाए
अजी हाए हाए हाए हाए

जा रे धोखेबाज़
मौत को दे ना तू आवाज़

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

 

‘प’ – प्यार की बातें कोई ना जाने याद तेरी फिर आए ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

पल दो पल का साथ हमारा, पल तो पल के याराने हैं
इस मंज़िल पर मिलने वाले

उस मंज़िल पर खो जाने हैं

Yes, we know, and we realize it. But still, it does seem that this साथ was not even justified as दो पल or even one. खो जाने वाली मंज़िल, कुछ बहुत ही जल्दी आ गई. . .

Skipping the letters ‘ढ’ and ‘ण’
‘ढ’ – very few songs starting with this letter – either all used, or not applicable to this series.
‘ण’ does not have any song starting with this letter. Made a very interesting discovery as I browsed the Hindi dictionary for words starting with ‘ण’. There is only one word that starts with this letter. More interestingly, the letter itself has uses as a monosyllabic word, and has at least 10 meanings associated. Wow.

So we come to the letter ‘प’ today. And here is a wonderfully lovely song to go with it.

Today’s episode of this series brings up the second song of the film ‘Magic Carpet’ (1964), one of the ‘jaadugar sainyaan’ category of films, which were a popular genre in the 1950s and 60s. Although classified as B/C grade films, this category of films had their own distribution circuits, their own cinema halls where they were exhibited, and a very loyal coterie of audience who would not let go even one of this category without a visit.

The film is produced by AM Bhanji under the banner of Unique Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. In the Geet Kosh, the cast of actors is listed as a very short list – Chitra, Azaad, BM Vyas and Bhagwan. The additional names of actors in this film, as taken from the casting credits in the film (that has now become thankfully available in public domain), are Bela Bose, Dalpat, Bimla Kashmiri, Kesri, Aroon, Maqbool, Radhe Shyam, Arvind Kumar, Mehroo Bai, Bakshi, Master Kishore, Kalla, Rafiq, Sandow, MD, Dawood, Amir, Musa, Julian, Khalil, Rehman, Salim, Zippy and Nagina.

Geet Kosh lists five songs for this film, penned by four poets, Jia Dehlavi, Shakeel Nomaani, Aish Farooqi and Farooque Kaiser. This song is written by Shakeel Nomaani. The music – by Ram Prasad. Yes, he is the same Ram Prasad Sharma, father of Pyaarelal (of Lxmikant Pyaarelal duo) and Ganesh. A brief about this music director is included in the post for the song “Antul Habi Ke Dekho Kabhi. . .“.

The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. On screen, we see this song initiated by Bhagwan Dada, and a lady, whose name, if I may hazard a guess, is Bimla Kashmiri. I could be wrong, and I welcome inputs from more knowledgeable readers and friends, to correct or confirm this guess.

As the song progresses, we also see Azaad and Chitra in the clip. Majority of the performance of the song is by Bhagwan and Bimla Kashmiri. Azaad does not appear to lip sync any of the lines, but Chitra does take up lip syncing in one of the stanzas. So in all, the onscreen performance and mapping to the playback voices, is kind of mixed up in this song.

And so, this song brings up the 24th episode in this series. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Pyaar Ki Baaten Koi Na Jaane Yaad Teri Phir Aaye  (Magic Carpet) (1964) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Shakeel Nomaani, MD – Ram Prasad
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics 

pyaar ki baaten koi na jaane

hum shama aur tum parwaane
raaz na khulne paaye

jaise tujhe dulhan banaane
aa rahi hain bahaaren
door ka jalwa dil na maane

meri ada ke o deewaane
kaun tujhe samjhaaye
wallah tauba meri haaye
allah tauba meri haaye
o wallah tauba meri haaye
allah tauba meri haaye
chaand sa chehra zulfen kaali
nazar na lag jaaye
wallah tauba meri haaye

प्यार की बातें कोई ना जाने
याद तेरी फिर आए
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए

चाँद सा चेहरा ज़ुल्फें काली
नज़र ना लग जाये
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए

दिल को तेरी तिरछी नज़र ने
दे दिया है सहारा
दिल को तेरी तिरछी नज़र ने
दे दिया है सहारा
जाओ अजी झूठे कहीं के
तुम ना समझे इशारा
हम शमा और तुम परवाने
राज़ ना खुलने पाये
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
चाँद सा चेहरा ज़ुल्फें काली
नज़र ना लग जाये
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए

काबू अब दिल पर नहीं है
गा रही हैं बहारें
काबू अब दिल पर नहीं है
गा रही हैं बहारें
जैसे तुझे दुल्हन बनाने
आ रही हैं बहारें
दूर का जल्वा दिल ना माने
दिल से निकले हाए
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
प्यार की बातें कोई ना जाने
याद तेरी फिर आए
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए

देखो मुझे ऐसे ना देखो
क्या कहेगा ज़माना
देखो मुझे ऐसे ना देखो
क्या कहेगा ज़माना
जाएँ कहाँ तेरी गली से
कोई नहीं है ठिकाना
मेरी अदा के ओ दीवाने
कौन तुझे समझाये
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
चाँद सा चेहरा ज़ुल्फें काली
नज़र ना लग जाये
वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
ओ वल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए
अल्लाह तौबा मेरी हाए

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ट’ – टूटे तो टूटे कोई दिल का सहारा ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

हम आस किए जाते, तुम पास नहीं आते
जाना था चले जाते, मिलने को चले आते

Everyone has to depart, someday. But this beseeching yoke of memories is now becoming an encumbering burden, that would probably be lightened only when I myself will depart.

– – – –

Presenting the next episode in this series. With close to half of Rafi Sb’s songs already posted on the blog, it is getting to be not an easy job to find songs to fit the requirements of the series. The alphabet letter for today is ‘ट’. When we scan the list of songs, we find a long list of songs starting with ‘t’, but then on closer review, one finds that majority of these ‘t’ songs are actually for the syllable ‘त’ –  as in ‘तुम’, ‘तुम्हारे’, ‘तेरा’ etc. There are very few songs that will start with the sound of ‘ट’.

But then, the going is still good. In fact I found two very good songs that satisfy this criteria; the second one I found fit quite well into another series, so I kept that aside for now.

This song is from the film ‘Lagan’ from 1971. Prior to this, two other films by this same title have been made – on in 1941 and the second in 1955. This is the third one. The film is produced under the banner of RRK Combine of Madras (now Chennai), and is directed by Ramanna. The star cast of this film includes Nutan, Ajay Sahni, Prem Chopra, Farida Jalal, Jagdeep, Bindu, Sulochana, Shabnam, Jaishri T, Nazir Hussain, Beerbal, Dubey and Kailash Chopra amongst others.

The film is a family drama – a story about a mother (role played by Sulochana) and her two sons (roles played by Prem Chopra and Ajay Sahni aka Parikshit Sahni). They relocate from Burma to Bombay, and a good Samaritan soul (role played by Nazir Hussain) in the form of a friend of the lady’s late-husband, hands them over substantial assets that are the share of the late-husband. Life is comfortable, only that the elder son (Prem Chopra) is wayward, and seeks extra-marital happiness. His wife is on way for a child, and he mistreats her. When this become known to the mother, she resolves to take action against her elder son, and to set him right.

The film has six songs, all written by Anand Bakshi, and tuned to music by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. Some of the songs are well heard memories from radio listening days. I picked this song for being a duet of Rafi Sb, but could not locate its video. I even scanned the film quickly, but it seems this song has been excluded from the film.

A duet in the voice of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle, it seems like a sad song of separation. As I scanned the film, I really could not make out where and how this song might fit into the storyline. If it were a solo sad song, then it could have fit in well. But a sad song presented as a duet seems to have no place in the film.

And so, presenting the next in this series, a song that is presents  a complaint, possibly from to a separated companion, or may be to the Almighty.

Song – Toote To Toote Koi Dil Ka Sahaara  (Lagan) (1971) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

toote to toote koi dil ka sahaara
toote to toote koi dil ka sahaara
sahaara
ho hi raha hai phir bhi apna guzaara
ho hi raha hai phir bhi apna guzaara
roothe to roothe koi saathi hamaara
roothe to roothe koi saathi hamaara
hamaara
ho hi raha hai phir bhi apna guzaara

chaahe wafa kar chaahe kar bewafaai
chaahe wafa kar chaahe kar bewafaai
hum wo nahin jo denge teri duhaai
samjhe na samjhe zaalim tu ye ishaara
ishaara
ho hi raha hai phir bhi apna guzaara
toote to toote koi dil ka sahaara

ro ro ke phir na tera hum naam lenge
ro ro ke phir na tera hum naam lenge
baahen kisi ki bhi hum to thaam lenge
chhoote to chhoote hamse daaman tumhaara
tumhaara
ho hi raha hai phir bhi apna guzaara
toote to toote koi dil ka sahaara
roothe to roothe koi saathi hamaara
hamaara
ho hi raha hai phir bhi apna guzaara

टूटे तो टूटे कोई दिल का सहारा
टूटे तो टूटे कोई दिल का सहारा
सहारा
हो ही रहा है फिर भी अपना गुज़ारा
हो ही रहा है फिर भी अपना गुज़ारा
रूठे तो रूठे कोई साथी हमारा
रूठे तो रूठे कोई साथी हमारा
हमारा
हो ही रहा है फिर भी अपना गुज़ारा

चाहे वफा कर चाहे कर बेवफाई
चाहे वफा कर चाहे कर बेवफाई
हम वो नहीं जो देंगे तेरी दुहाई
समझे ना समझे ज़ालिम तू ये ईशारा
ईशारा
हो ही रहा है फिर भी अपना गुज़ारा
टूटे तो टूटे कोई दिल का सहारा

रो रो के फिर ना तेरा हम नाम लेंगे
रो रो के फिर ना तेरा हम नाम लेंगे
बाहें किसी की भी हम तो थाम लेंगे
छूटे तो छूटे हमसे दामन तुम्हारा
तुम्हारा
हो ही रहा है फिर भी अपना गुज़ारा
टूटे तो टूटे कोई दिल का सहारा
रूठे तो रूठे कोई साथी हमारा
हमारा
हो ही रहा है फिर भी अपना गुज़ारा

“Lachak”(1951) was produced by Shriram Bohra and directed by M I Dharmsey for Shree Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Geeta Bali, Amarnath, Kuldeep Kaur, Agha, Paro, Nayantara, Mukri, B M Vyas, Ramkumar, Shanti Sharma, Rukhsana, Zareena, Cecil, Ram Singh, Anand, Sheikh etc in it.

The movie had nine songs that were penned by seven lyricists ! Sheikh and Shreeram had penned two songs each, and the remaining five songs were penned by five different lyricists. These songs had the voices of at least six singers in them may be more.

One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Lachak”(1951) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Moiram.

Only the audio of the song is available. One YT uploader has uploaded the audio of this song where video of some other song from some other movie viz Parchhaain(1952) has been combined with this audio. I find such practices highly abhorrent as it misleads people.

Hullo to all atulites

In the euphoria to celebrate the blogs 10th anniversary with an appropriate post last week I missed out on a few anniversaries, occasions for which I always try and send a special song. I just realised that 18th July is the anniversary of another favourite. So here is a song for the occasion.

But I think, we can have a song featuring one in a movie in which the other is the main lead. The two actors I was thinking of combining are Rajesh Khanna and Sanjeev Kumar.

We missed Sanjeev Kumar’s birthday last week, he would have been 80 years on 9th July. And 18th July, it will be six years since Rajesh Khanna passed away. Both the actors were active around the same period. Both had their distinct styles in acting and also the kind of characters they enacted. They have appeared in about five films together – “Bandhan”, “Aap Ki Kasam”, “Chala Murari Hero Banane”, “Suraag” and I think Rajesh Khanna had a guest appearance in “Ram Tere Kitne Nam” which released about the time Sanjeev Kumar passed away. “Bandhan” was essentially a Rajesh Khanna movie where Sanjeev Kumar had a small role as a lawyer who fights a case for Rajesh Khanna. “Aap Ki Kasam” had Sanjeev Kumar play RK’s friend and neighbour and the eventual cause for the separation of Rk and Mumtaz. I don’t remember much about “Chala Murari Hero Banane” which was a movie about movies made by actor Asrani and I feel both RK and SK might have played themselves i.e. film stars, in guest appearances. That brings us to “Suraag” which is a Sanjeev Kumar movie where Rajesh Khanna is in a guest appearance in a song situation along with Tina Munim.

Remembering Rajesh Khanna with this song from “Suraag” which was produced by Jagmohan Mundhra and directed by Jag Mundhra and Ambrish Sangal. It had Sanjeev Kumar as husband to Gita Siddharath, playing a professor in Criminology and Parikshat Sahni playing a doctor who is the professor’s unmarried friend. Shabana Azmi plays Parikshat Sahni’s wife who is kidnapped on her way to New York. And then the movie’s mystery begins. The movie had music by Bappi Lahiri and written by Kaifi Azmi. The playback singers use in the movie were Mohd. Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Bappi Lahiri and Kishore Kumar. Today’s song is a qawwali where Rajesh Khanna is on stage with Tina Munim and Gita Siddharath and Sanjeev Kumar are in the audience. Half way through the song Gita spots Shaban Azmi among the chorus girls and then the chase to find her picks up steam. I have seen this movie ages ago so I don’t remember if the song happens abroad or in India. The movie’s story transports the audience back and forth between India and America.

Here is the song which has Rafi and Asha giving playback alongwith male and female chorus.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ध’ – धीरे धीरे मोहब्बत जवां हो गई ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

दुनिया में आया है तो फूल खिलाये जा॰ ॰ ॰

With your songs, and your deeds, that is what you accomplished in your life; that is the only memories we remember you by . . .

– – – –

Presenting the next episode in this series. The film is a standard family drama from the still sedate 1960s, and the fever of disco was still hidden in far horizons. The film is ‘Bhai Behen’ from 1969. The lead pair of Nutan and Sunil Dutt, with a better part of two decades of careers behind them, still look handsome and comely.

The film comes from the banner of Vikram Productions, Madras, and is directed by the renowned A Bhimsingh. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Pran, Padmini, Sulochana, Helen, Diwakar, Mukri, Bhalla, Shivraj, V Puranik, and Babbanlal. Quite a formulaic presentation this one must be – one look as the list of actors, and one can quickly surmise the type of roles that each actor would have played.

Seven songs and four songwriters are listed – Rajendra Krishan, SH Bihari, Pt Narendra Sharma and Hasrat Jaipuri. This song is from the pen of SH Bihari. Music is composed by the duo of Shanker Jaikishan.

The song is about coming of age and the blossoming of first love. The song plays out in the gardens and then on to the boat and the Bombay coastline. Both Sunil Dutt and Nutan are still fresh from their 1967 hit together – ‘Milan’. And a little further back, they also have more hits together – ‘Khandaan’ in 1965 and ‘Sujaata’ in 1960. Ah yes, also ‘Gauri’ from 1968.

Enjoy this lesser heard melody in the voices of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle.

Song – Dheere Dheere Mohabbat Jawaan Ho Gai  (Bhai Behan) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi

aap to jaane kya
mujhse keh kar miley
aap to jaane kya
mujhse keh kar miley
phool armaan ke dil mein itne khile
phool itne khile
husn ki zindagi gulsitaan ho dayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi

kar chuke aap jab
mujh se ahd e wafaa
kar chuke aap jab
mujh se ahd e wafaa
farq itna hi donon mein baaki raha
haaye baaki raha
aap dil ban gaye
aur main jaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi
dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi
baat itni badhi dastaan ho gayi

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘झ’ – झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान ॰ ॰ ॰

बस्ती बस्ती पर्वत पर्वत गाता जाये बंजारा  ॰ ॰ ॰

Over the hills and through the valleys; on lonely roads and barren deserts; be it crowded cities or a lonely boatman – there is always a song, and your voice with it, don’t have to search far. . .

– – – – –

What a gem of discovery this song is. I can’t recall having heard it earlier. The film is ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ from 1954. The film itself is not so unfamiliar – three songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. Although of course it is lesser known than its more famous same name predecessor from 1935. Btw, there is another film by the same name in 1977 also.

But this song – such a melodious creation it is, and a surprise that it has remained obscure for such a long time.

The 1954 ‘Dhoop Chhaaon’ is produced by MO Suhel for the banner of Suhel Art Productions, Bombay and is directed by SM Raza. Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film, all composed by Aziz Hindi. Four song writers are listed – Manohar Khanna, Jaan Nisar Akhtar, Arshi Ajmeri and Khaawar Zamaa. This song is from the pen of Jaan Nisar Akhtar. An interesting aside, the name of assistant music director is listed as Madan Sachdev. I wonder if this is the same person as S Madan, who gave music for the 1960 film ‘Batwaara’. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on this observation.

The star cast is listed as Shyama, Bharat Bhushan, Agha, NA Ansari, Krishna Kumari, Shameem, Mumtaz, Maqbool, A Roshan, Ahmed, and S Nazeer. And I just recalled something, and confirmed with the anniversaries list. 12 June, that is this past Tuesday, was the birth anniversary of Shyama. And yesterday, 14th June, was the birth anniversary of Bharat Bhushan. Given that they are the lead pair in this film, it is more than likely that this duet song is picturized on them. Earlier this week I was thinking of doing a post on Shyama, but could not get to it. This song turns out to be a bonus in that respect, reviving the memories of these two stalwart artists of Hindi cinema.

A lovely melodious song that is seems to have missed the attention of music lovers. Since I traced out this song on YT, I have heard it many times and simply do not seem to be getting over it. I am sure you will enjoy too.

 

Song – Jhuk Ke Zameen Choom Raha Aasmaan  (Dhoop Chhaaon) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Aziz Hindi
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaa
aaaaaa aaaa aaaaaaaaa
aaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaa aa

jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

dekho sajan kaisi har shai pe khushi chhaayee hai
baat mohabbat ki ban aayi hai
aaj miley do dil
milne ki ghadi aayi hai
kaisi haseen aaj ki tanhaai hai
jhoom raha kab se umangi samaan
choom rahi phool ka munh titliaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

nazron mein lehren hain
haathon mein tera haath hai
mera jahaan aaj mere saath hai
kitni jawaan kaisi rangeen mulaqaat hai
saath mein armaanon ki baraat hai
kehti huin pyaar bhari daastaan
beh rahin saagar ki taraf naddiyaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
jhuk ke zameen choom raha aasmaan
aaj galey mil rahe dono jahaan
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna
phir kyon na milen kyon na hum saajna

झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान

देखो सजन कैसी हर शै पे खुशी छाई है

झूम रहा कबसे उमंगीं समां
चूम रही फूल का मुंह तितलियाँ

फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना

नज़रों में लहरें हैं
हाथों में तेरा हाथ है
मेरा जहां आज मेरे साथ है
कितनी जवां कैसी रंगीन मुलाक़ात है
साथ में अरमानों की बरात है
कहती हुईं प्यार भरी दास्ताँ
बह रहीं सागर की तरफ नद्दीयां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
झुक के ज़मीन चूम रहा आसमान
आज गले मिल रहे दोनों जहां
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना
फिर क्यों ना मिलें क्यों ना हम साजना

Blog Day : 3601 Post No. : 14373

“Naag Jyoti” (1963) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Swastik Films Production, Bombay. This mythological movie had Mahipal, Anita Guha, Sunder, Ratnamala, Rajen Haksar, Khurshid etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Naag Jyoti” (1963) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik. Sardar Malik last appeared in the blog on blog day number 3302 (date 2 august 2017). So he appears in the blog again on day number 3601, viz. after the passage of 299 days. 🙂

For statistically minded music lovers, this “tall promise” song (tera mera pyaar amar hoga) is the 501st Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog.


Song-Maana tum na rahoge maana ham na rahenge(Naag Jyoti)(1963) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

maana tum na rahoge

maana tum na rahoge

chaahe jo len hum laakhon janam
chaahe jo len hum laakhon janam
phir bhi na bichhden teri kasam

maana tum na rahoge
maana hum na rahenge
par tera mera pyaar amar hoga
par tera mera pyar amar hoga

This song is the 14300th song post in the blog.

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part II-Chaand Pardesi
—————————-

If one thinks that posting “blog century” songs is quite a straight forward matter then think again. Though we have posted as many as 142 blog century posts, hardly any of them were easy picks. I had to think hard and long before finding songs befitting the occasion.

As the number of centuries mounted, we began to combine those blog centuries with other special occasions, viz. artist century, contributor century, artist anniversaries etc.

The post under discussion marks the 143rd century for the blog. In other words, it is the song post number 14300 for the blog.

I just mentioned that selecting “blog century” songs is not a trivial matter. Let me describe the thought process/ behind the scene activities that took place before I settled on this particular song as the “blog century” song.

First thing first. I had made up my mind that I would author this post. The reason was simple. I realised that our other contributors, including the usual century author Sudhir Jee were hard pressed for time these days. So I decided that I needed to write this post.

Many of our special posts including century posts have tended to appear towards the midnight, which may be prime time for TV but not for the blog. Blog prime time is day time on a weekday, so I made up my plan that this article should appear by morning today (24 april 2018) which happens to be tuesday.

When the day began, the tally of posts stood at 14297, so it meant that three posts needed to be posted, including two posts prior to the century post.

Did I have any song in mind for the “blog century” post ?

Yes, I had. It was a rare song, and quite a remarkable song. I had discovered this song a few months ago and I had noted down its lyrics as well. It was a long song and noting down the lyrics took a good amount of time. I had earmarked this song as a special song, to be covered as a “blog century” post or any such occasion.

This song had another qualification. I had begun my series of Rafi songs called (Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song. I had begun this series by aiming to cover those music directors who composed just one song with Rafi. I had decided that these songs would be special occasion songs in the blog. The first (and so far only) song in the series was composed by Arun Raghavan. I had combined this song to mark several special occasions, viz. that song was the 2800th Rafi song in the blog and the movie, which got introduced in the blog with the song was the 3800th movie covered in the blog.

My planned song that I had earmarked also fitted the same bill. It was also the only Rafi song composed by that music director.

With time, I realised that this song could be combined to mark another extremely rare occasion which few regulars may be able to guess. It could become the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog !

So I had silently made sure that the tally of Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had gradually inched upto the 499 mark in the blog. 🙂

So, when the time arrived to post the 14300th song article, I had every thing covered. Or that is what I thought.

When I began to search for this song in my hard disk, I was unable to locate it. I had noted down its lyrics spending several hours. I was sure it was there somewhere but where ? I managed to locate the video in my hard disk but not the lyrics.

OK, I will have to note the lyrics again, I thought.

When I began to listen to the song, I received another jolt. This song that I was remembering as a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had another voice in it. So my carefully laid plans got thrown out of the window immediately.

What to do now ? Now I needed to search for songs composed by other composers who worked with Rafi in just one song. This list is fortunately very much there in my excel sheet, and show I immediately began to search for Rafi songs composed by these one Rafi song composers.

The songs that I located were just solo Rafi songs, and they somehow did not sound worthy of being the blog century song. Nevertheless, one such Rafi song, after repeated listening began to grow upon me and I decided that this song was going to be the song for the occasion. So I noted down the lyrics of the song.

On just a whim, I decided to check up another solo Rafi song composer. And guess what ? This song was very much a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet !

When I listened to the song, I realised that it was an suitable replacement for the song that I had originally planned and which turned out to have more than two voices.

So, I got a song which was the only occasion when this music director got to utlise Rafi’s voice in his compositions. And this song happens to be the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog.

This song in question is from a forgotten movie called “Ban Maanush”(1979). It was directed by Kamram Khan for O K Films, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Padma Khanna, Kamran, Uma Dhawan, Mohan Choti, Sundar, Ratan Mala, Monal, Rajan Kapoor, Habeeb, Hamid Khan, Sawan, Chaachi, Sabir, Ramjanam singh, Danny Junior (new discovery), Jagdep (special appearance) etc in it.

“Ban Maanush”(1979) had three songs in it. This song under discussion is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. So “Ban Maanush”(1979) makes its debut with this rare and special song.

The video of this song is very much available. One can see that the song is picturised as a qawwaali song where a gentleman and a lady assisted by their respective teams of chorus sing this song.

Good qawwaali’s in Hindi movies always have great lyrics in them. And this qawwaali is no exception. Farooque Kaiser is done very well in penning the lyrics of this song. Music is composed by Chaand Pardesi.

Qawwaali is one genre of song where picturisation plays as important a role as the lyrics is savouring and enjoying the song. The saying “the song is better heard than seen” does not apply to qawwaalis.

Qawwaalis were normally seen in muslim social movies. In these movies, qaawwaali are one occasion where the two genders are seen interacting with each other in full public view. It is one occasion where the two genders openly use amorous terms and the public (otherwise quite conservative) do not mind. I think this kind of qawwaalis have been invented in Hindi movies and I do not think amir Khusro, the creator of Qawwaali might have imagined that the qawaalis would serve this pupropse, viz helping the two genders (who otherwise remain segregated) to interact with each other and express their feelings with each other.

To help avoid embarrassment that may result if one a male and a female were to sing the song, the lead singers are supported by friends of the same gender to lend moral support by singing in chorus.

Another thing that one notices in these filmy qawwaalis are that the lyrics of this songs are quite liberal and broadminded and not at all conservative and narrow minded. One is readily reminded of the epic qawwaali of “Barsaat Ki Raat”(1960) that covers lots and lots of topics viz. Krishna, Radha, Meera, Buddha, Maseeh etc.

The qawwaali under consideration is a nice “expression of love” genre of qawwaali. I can see that Padma Khanna lip syncs in Asha Bhonsle’s song, but I am unable to identify the gentleman who lip syncs in Rafi’s voice.

This qawwaali is a forgotten gem from my college days which I had never heard before.

In summary, here are the salient features of this song post:-

1. This song is the only Rafi song that music director Chaand Pardesi composed in his career. And what a superb song it is. This article is our way of honouring the one Rafi song music director Chaand Pardesi.

2. This song is the 500th duet song sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. What to say about this feat. These two legends have easily sung the most number of duets songs ever. I have not yet counted the number of duets sung by them, but I have read an estimate this puts this figure to over 800 ! The second most prolific duet singing pair happens to be Rafi-Lata pair. They are a “distant” second with “just” 400 plus duets. 🙂

3. This song is the 14300th song of the blog. The previous blog century was achieved on 23 march 2018. So this century has taken 32 days.

There was a time when we used to clock centuries in 16 days. We may have slowed down, and in the course of this century we even had a dot day, but at least the musical bandwagon is still on the move. And this matters a lot.

We are on the verge of several landmarks in addition to the usual blog century landmarks. Lots of artists are closing in to their century and multiple century marks. Even a regular contributor is stuck on 199 (hint ! hint ! 🙂 ). So there are lots of exciting and interesting events ahead of us.

When one considers this series (pal do pal ka saath), this was only the second episode. There are more music directors with justone Rafi song to their credit. Their time would also come and we will honour them too with similar special write ups.

As for now, I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support for nearly ten years. That reminds me, we are on the verge of completing ten years in another four months. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue to roll on and on and in the process we will find ourselves acquainted with lots and lots of great musical gems, and some of them for the first time.

This special song may well be the first time many of our music lovers will get to listen to this song. Here is this wonderful song from the golden era of HFM. Enjoy !

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
rang bhi uda uda hai
kadam bhi ruke ruke
kaise karenge pyaar ye
naina jhuke jhuke

uthaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

uthaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisar honge

hum jisko dil de den
usi ke yaar honge
tumhaari tarah to hazaar honge
hum jisko dil de den
usi ke yaar honge
tumhaari tarah to hazaar honge

hum jisko dil de den
usi ke yaar honge
tumhaari tarah to hazaar honge
uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge

tumhaari tarah to hazaar honge

ishq waale wafa nahin karte
daawe karte hain khoob badh chadhh kar
jab nibhaane ki baat aati hai
bhool jaate hain pyaar ye dilbar

bhool jaate hain pyar ye dilbar
bhool jaate hain pyar ye dilbar

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
husn waale daga nahin karte
ye hamaara yakeen hain dilbar
jinke baalon mein phool khilte hain
ho nahin sakte unke dil patthar
ho nahin sakte unke dil patthar
ho nahin sakte unke dil patthar

aa aa aa aa aa
ae mere dard e jigar
itni taareef na kar
naaz itne na uthha
humko sar pe na bithha
humko maaloom hai sab
teri chahat ka sabab
dard ye tune diya
pyaar to humne kiya

pyaar to humne kiya
pyaar to humne kiya

aaj phir tera pyar maanga hai
ik zara sa karar maanga hai
phir wahi intzaar maanga hai
phir tera etbar manga hai
dard ka razdaar maanga hai
dil ka aayina daar manga hain
jinko jannat ka shauk hai maangen aen aen
humne allaah se yaar manga hai
humne allaah se yaar maanga hain
humne allah se yaar maanga hai

sab kuch khuda se maang liya
uthte nahi hain, mere haath is dua ke baad
humne allah se yaar maanga hai
humne allah se yaar maanga hai

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
duaayen mangne se
chhaanv zulfon ki nahin milti
mohabbat zindagi ki sabse
mushqil aazmaayish hain
tadap hai dard hai aansu hain
ruswaai bhi hai ismein
magar ye aazma lene ke
kaabil aazmaayish hai

ye dil chaahe toote
padenge hum na jhoothhe
tumhare liye bekaraar honge
ye dil chaahe toote
padenge hum na jhhoothhe
tumhaare liye bekarar honge

ye dil chahe toote
padenge hum na jhhoothhe
tumhaare liye bekraar honge
uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

hum jisko dil de den
usi ke yaar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

The eighth and final song from “Mr India”(1961) is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi, alongwith chorus. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kphli.

Only the audio of the song is available. It sounds like a dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Mr India”(1961) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Today (10 march 2018) is the 100th day of the year 2018. We have been seeing one movie attaining YIPPEEHOOD everyday from the first day of the year 2018 . This streak lasted till 2 april 2018. I posted what I thought a “YIPPEE” song on 3 april 2018 as well, but it was pointed out the next day that the movie had more songs. So the YIPPEE streak came to an end, but that was not because of any lack of effort or motivation on our part. We have since resumed the one one YIPPEE movie per day routine once again.

There was one day (16 january 2018) when two YIPPEE movies had been covered. So in effect, we have YIPPEED 100 movies in 100 days of the year and the movie “Mr India”(1961) is the 100th YIPPEED movie of 2018. So this is another of those “artificial” centuries milestones that we often achieve in the blog these days. 🙂

That is not the only “artificial” century distinction with this post. There is another. This movie becomes the 100th YIPEED movie in the blog whose title begins with the letter M. 🙂

Lyrics

ba balu
o ba balu

o o
chhod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
o chhod ke na jana aadhi raat ko
tu kya jaane re bedardi
tu kya samjhe re bedardi
meri baat ko
dil tod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
baba lu
o baba lu

babalu babalu
babalu babalu

chamke abhi to mere maathe ke taare
maathe ke taare ho
kyun humko meethhi meethhi baaton se maare
baaton se maare

daala aate hi bahaana
haaye aisa bhi kya aana o mulakaat ko
dil tod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
o o chhod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
tu kya jaane re bedardi
tu kya samjhe re bedardi
meri baat ko
dil tod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
ba balu
o ba balu

ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu

uljhi laton se khele ban ke hawaayen
ban ke hawaayen ho
bhole dilon ko loote teri adaayen
teri adaayen

karna hamse na kinaara
dil na tarse kal tumhaara
mere saath ko
dil tod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
o o chhod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko
tu kya jaane re bedardi
tu kya samjhe re bedardi
meri baat ko
dil tod ke na jaana aadhi raat ko o
ba balu
o ba balu

ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu

(aa aa aa aa aa)
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu

o o o o
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
ba balu ba balu
