Hullo Atuldom

“Mehrban” (1967) as spelt in the titles of the movie was an AVM (Madras) production written and directed by A. Bhimsingh. It’s cast was headed by Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Sunil Dutt and had Ramesh Deo, Shyama, Ashim kumar, Jayanthi, Shashikala, Bharathi, Mehmood, Soodesh Kumar and Sulochana Latkar. The dialogues and lyrics were written by Rajinder Kishan and Ravi was the music director. The movie had seven songs of which the blog has the following two.

Song Date of posting
Ae mere dost ae mere hamdam 21 January 2013
Mera gadha gadhon ka leader 9 December 2016

As we can see this movie last made its appearance in 2016 with a wonderful post by Rajaji who was pushed to write by Avinashji. Infact, for the both songs posted, Avinashji was the lyrics contributor.

The 2013 post had a brief synopsis of the movie. It equated the movie to the 1990 David Dhawan directed Rajesh Khanna- Govinda starrer “Swarg”. I happened to see “Mehrbaan” recently and realised that the similarity is limited. Yes, Rajesh Khanna played the rich-man in “Swarg” similar to Ashok Kumar’s character in “Mehrban”. Govinda played the orphan who is devoted to the family similar to Sunil Dutt’s character in “Mehrban”.

The variations in the 1967 movie is that the wealthy couple Shanti Swarup (Ashok Kumar) and Parvati (Sulochana) have three sons and two daughters in addition to being the adoptive parents of Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt). (In “Swarg” the wealthy couple are childess) They also bring in Laxmi (Nutan) whose parents were known to them and who die leaving Laxmi to fend for herself. So, as we can see it is a full house. That gives the story all kinds of good, bad and ugly characters which helps the writer to gives us a three-hour long movie with lots of ‘rona-dhona’ ‘kasam khana and khilana’ etc. i.e. a highly emotional movie. The end is predictable in that all the family members come together and live happily, once again.

Just remembered another variation between “Swarg” and “Mehrban”. In “Swarg” Krishna (Govinda) becomes rich by acting in movies, buys back the property of his ‘sahabji’ (Rajesh Khanna) and teaches the errant brothers a lesson or two before bringing them back to apologise for all the wrongs that they have done. Kanhaiya of ‘Mehrban’ doesn’t wait to earn riches before coming back to set matters right in the adoptive family. Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt) has Laxmi (whom he marries before being sent away from the home by Sulochana) for support whereas Krishna does it with the help of his friend ‘Airport’ (Satish Kaushik).
Also, in ‘Swarg’ Sahabji’s wife dies of shock and in ‘Mehrban’ Shanti Swarup dies leaving his wife to the mercy of his ungrateful children.

‘Swarg’ was said to be a remake of ‘Mehrban’ which itself was a remake from the 1960 Tamil hit ‘Padikkadha Medhai’ (Uneducated Genius) which in turn was a remake of the 1953 Bengali movie ‘Jog Biyog’ which was based on the novel of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. So, that means this story will hold good in any time and age.

We are revisiting this movie today with a duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi but (surprise) it is not a romantic song. In fact, the movie doesn’t have any romantic song, in the true sense of the term. There is a Lata Mangeshkar solo which has Nutan pacifying a sad Sunil Dutt. This song relates the story of Shanti Swarup to his grandchildren.

This is one of five movies where Nutan and Sunil Dutt played the lead. As I was looking up the anniversaries tab of the blog I found that the birth-dates of the two were one day apart. I wondered what scenario it would have been, back then, when the shooting of the movies were on. Nutan would have turned 85 on 4th June and Sunil (birth-name Balraj) Dutt would have been 92. Just a passing thought, their sons are actors too and have acted together in a few movies.

Editor’s note-Lyrics of this song, which turns out to be a multiple version song, were sent by Avinash Scrapwala long ago.

ek aisa magar din bhi aaya
jisne raja ko nirdhan banaya
ho gaye khaali saare khazaane ae
haaye kaisa ye andher chhaaya

woh jo bete thhe aankhon ke taare
raja rani ke dil sahaare
kaam aise mein woh bhi naa aaye
chhupte phirte the aankhen churaaye

aaram ke saathi kya kya the

dhan rooth gaya toh koi nahin
kaun girte ko deta sahaara

bachpan se mehmaan wahaan thha
usne jiske tukde khaaye
sada usi ke paanv dabaaye
un bedardon ki mehfil mein
ek wahi hamdard bacha thha
lekin maalik ko kya deta
bechaare ke paas hi kya thha
bechaare ke paas hi kya thha

apne malik ke kadmon mein ro ro ke
khush hota charan uske dho dho ke
apna tan man nichhavar woh karta raha
ek ishaare pe malik ke marta raha
hai kahaani magar baat kal hi ki hai
na samjhna ise tum pura..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni

Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani

Pehle rehte the saagar kinaare
Ab samaaye dilon mein hamaare
Yaad unki rahegi jahaan mein
Jab talak hai ye chaand aur taare
Jo naa mitaaye mitegi kisi se
Chhodi hai aisi nishaani

Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani
Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani

On this occasion here is a song from the movie ‘Naach Ghar-1959’.

‘Naach Ghar-1959’ was directed by R.S. Tara for ‘Quality Pictures, Bombay’. R.S. Tara was also the producer of this movie. It had Ashok Kumar, Shobha Khote, Gopikrishna, Helen, Kamala Laxman, Anup Kumar, Dhumal, Iftekhar, Maya Das, Mirza Musharraf, Jamal, Sujata, Bismillah, Vivek and others.

These songs are :-

Lyrics

Meri sune to o pardesi

Chali hai tu kis gaaon mein
Chali hai tu kis gaaon mein

Bhalaa lage to tu bhi chalaa chal
Bura lage to jaane de ae

Are bhalaa lage to dil se poochh le
Buraa lage to jaane de ae

Meri sune to o pardesi

Meri sune to o pardesi
Bhalaa lage to gale se lag jaa …

Blog Day :

4518 Post No. : 16075

Some regulars of the blog are more keen eyed than most people and they keep looking for important events taking place in the blog. One important event happened in the blog yesterday. I became aware of it mainly because some regulars pointed it out in our whatsapp group.

On this day in the afternoon, the blog silently registered its 14 millionth visitor. The blog began 12 years ago on 19 july 2008 and it took the blog 4517 days to reach this magic figure on 29 november 2020.

Here is a summary of all the million visitors that have taken place in the blog so far :-

Visitor number Date achieved Blog day number Days taken for the million hits Remarks
1 million 25 October 2010 829 829 Slowest one million @ 1206 visitors per day
2 millions 7 November 2011 1207 378 @2645 visitors per day
3 millions 7 April 2012 1359 152 Fastest one million @ 6579 visitors per day
4 millions 10 December 2012 1606 247 @ 4049 visitors per day
5 millions 29 October 2013 1929 323 @3096 visitors per day
6 millions 12 October 2014 2277 348 @2873 visitors per day
7 millions 4 July 2015 2542 265 @ 3773 visitors per day
8 millions 20 April 2016 2833 291 @ 3436 visitors per day
9 millions 24 February 2017 3143 310 @ 3226 visitors per day
10 millions 14 January 2018 3467 324 @ 3086 visitors per day
11 millions 22 November 2018 3779 312 @ 3205 visitors per day
12 millions 4 July 2019 4003 224 @ 4464 visitors per day
13 millions 8 February 2020 4222 219 @ 4566 visitors per day
14 millions 29 November 2020 4517 295 @ 3390 visitors per day

Overall rate of visitors till now is 3099 visitors per day.

The above table shows that the blog, despite dealing in a non populist topic in a non TRP seeking manner, still draws a regular stream of visitors. It certainly serves as a source of encouragement for us.

I remember that the blog used to have visitors in trickles (in double figures in a day) during its early days. It was on 16 august 2008 that the blog touched three figures in a day for the first time. It was on 23 january 2009 (189th day of the blog) when more than one thousand visitors visited the blog for the first time. 5 August 2009 saw more than 2000 visitors for the first time in a day. The blog has even seen over ten thousand visits in a day. Here are the details:-

Date Number of visitors Blog day Remarks
19 July 2008 4 1 Only four visitors on the first day. Only occasion of single digit visitors in a day
20 July 2008 12 2 First time the blog reached double figure of visitors on the second day of the blog
16 August 2008 253 29 First time the blog reached three figures of visitors in a day
23 January 2009 1145 189 First time the blog reached four figures of visitors in a day
29 August 2009 2071 407 First time the blog reached 2000 visitors in a day
15 July 2011 3060 1092 First time the blog reached 3000 visitors in a day
4 October 2011 4137 1173 First time the blog reached 4000 visitors in a day
7 October 2011 5379 1176 First time the blog reached 5000 visitors in a day
9 October 2011 6082 1178 First time the blog reached 6000 visitors in a day
10 October 2011 7561 1179 First time the blog reached 7000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 8000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 9000 visitors in a day
19 October 2011 10630 1188 First and only time the blog reached 10000 visitors in a day

It took the blog more than 1000 days before it could get 3000 plus visitors in a day. But then all of a sudden, the blog touched heights of 4000 plus, 5000 plus, 6000 plus, 7000 plus, 8000 plus , 9000 plus and 10000 plus visits in a day in the month of October 2011, all within 15 days !

All these figures are interesting figures and they have been achieved without making any conscious attempts. In fact, we are not even aware how and why these visitors find us. All we know from wordpress stats is that the blog gets hits from all around the globe. Indiais the major country where this blog gets viewed the most and USA comes second. Other major countries from where this blog gets viewed are UK, Pakistan, Malaysia, Canada, UAE, Mauritius, Australia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, South Africa etc.

All we can conclude from the above is that Hindi movie music, especially those created decades ago, enjoy good following all around the world among music lovers of Indian origin and sometimes even among non Indian origin persons. People who are looking for difficult to find songs are likely to find their way into the blog. Some of them, after stumbling upon the blog may decide to bookmark the blog for further reference.

It gives us encouragement to find that we are visited even by people who are themselves associated with HFM and they sometimes post messages in the blog or contact us as well.

The figures about visitors to the blog are in a way a reflection on the fact that the work being done in the blog for old HF songs is being noticed and appreciated. And this is just the reward that we, like most normal human beings seek. Such appreciation is just the tonic that keeps us motivated and make us do this work regularly without taking any breaks.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati”(1969). This song is sung by Rafi and Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Only the audio of the song is available as of now. This movie was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappi Sanie for Amar Chhaya Productions. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Babita, Kamini Kaushal, Om Prakash, Helen, Rajendra Nath, Laxmi Chhaya, Mumtaz Begum, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Hari Shivdasani, Sudhir, Sulochana Latkar, Sujata, Snehlata, Jagadish Kamal, Maqbool, Devi Chand, Baba Benjamin, Shobha, Madan Kenny etc in it. So, my guess is that thd song was picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Babita. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

06/11/2020 – 35th Remembrance day of Sanjeev Kumar

The song I am presenting today as a tribute to Sanjeev Kumar, the versatile actor, comic, romantic, angry young man, character actor and sometime villainous, actor and above all the Thakur of ‘Sholay’, is from the film ‘Love and God’ (1986). Sanjeev Kumar was born on 9th July, 1938 as Harihar Jethalal Jariwala , at Surat. His filmography lists 171 films from 1960 to 1994. He was just 48 years old when he died in 1985, though he had been doing the roles of old man since 70’s. In ‘Aandhi’ he is the patient hotelier husband of Suchitra Sen, caught between the ambitious father Rehman and his dutiful daughter. I have seen that film 4 decades ago, it is time to refresh the memory.

Who can forget the doctor in “Mausam”, singing “chhadi re chhadikaise gale meinpadi”. He was also one of the dedicated “Shatraj ke Khiladi”. The inspector in this, the lawyer in that plus the doctor in ‘Silsila’. Wah, come to think of it he was also one of the actors who had a profession. Be it a ‘darzi’ or a ‘domestic servant, nothing was too lowly for him. Who can forget the novelist in “Anamika”. It will be interesting to know if he played the role of a cook, or a librarian(possible), a professor, or a watchman, waiter etc.

Before I forget, he has the distinction of doing the role of Jaya Bahaduri (Bachchan)’s, husband, hero, friend, father, father-in-law etc.

The film “Love and God” was based on the story of Laila Majnu and Sanjeev Kumar eventually played the role of “Qais”(did Qais have a profession?) here, after the film was shelved and revived several times. Guru Dutt was originally cast in the role of ‘Qais’. The much delayed film by K. Asif was finally released in 1986 after even Sanjeev Kumar had died.

The song presented here is again a prayer (Du’aa) song, written by Khumar Barabankwi, composed by Naushad. Singers are the ever divine Mohammed Rafi Sahab and Lata Mangeshkar with Chorus. This du’aais very carefully following the protocol of prayer, in the sense, it starts with the devotion and how the Allah’s greatness is visible everywhere. Then first stanza talks how I am aggrieved and I have come to you, believing in you, with the hope in the heart. Second stanza has the appeal that all is in your hands and you will do as deemed best, you are the all merciful and save me from humiliation. Last stanza is the lament that I can’t bear this desolation, give the whole universe of others if you wish but grant me my one wish, i.e. my mohabbat.

‘Ulfat’ was the maiden offer from K Razdan, the producer. The film was directed by K Shankar, who had directed many Tamil and Telugu films apart from some Hindi films such as ‘Bharosa’ (1963), ‘Rajkumar’ (1964), ‘Sachaai’ (1969), ‘Parde Ke Peeche’ (1971), ‘Chhote Sarkaar’ (1974), ‘Raja’ (1975) etc. The main star cast consisted of Raaj Kumar, Sadhana, Waheeda Rehman, Nazir Hussain, Agha, Shammi, Gulshan Bawra, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Mohan Choti, Sundar etc.

K Razdan started his career as a film publicist and Public Relation Officer for some film productions houses and actors. He was associated with Guru Dutt Films, Ashok Kumar Films, Sippy Films, Sagar Films, Vishal International Productions of Manoj Kumar etc. ‘Ulfat’ was his maiden film as well as the last film as a producer. Why did the film ‘Ulfat’ which went to the floor sometime in early 1970s, take so much time to complete?

I had read an article on Raaj Kumar in ‘Daily Hunt’ in which there was a paragraph on Raaj Kumar creating problems for K Razdan, the producer during the shooting of the film. For trivial issues, Raaj Kumar used to have problems with other actors and crew members. For instance, Raaj Kumar did not like Cinematographer, G Singh for his habit of scratching his beard while filming the shoot. One can observe from the credit title of the film that there were 3 cinematographers listed for the film.

Fed up with his tantrums, K Razdan filed a suit in the court against Raaj Kumar. While it is not known as to what was the outcome of the suit, Razdan was happy that at least he made Raaj Kumar to sit on a wooden bench in the court room with commoners during the court hearings. K Razdan decided to expose Raaj Kumar by writing a book, ‘Nark Yatra’ sharing his experiences of working with Raaj Kumar. However, he refrained from publishing the book. Finally, in disgust, K Razdan abandoned the film left unfinished. He continued to work as film publicist and PRO in the Hindi film industry till 1990.

Raaj Kumar has been known for his eccentricity. His decision to take charge of the unfinished film in early 1990s with good amount of investment was nothing less than a part of his eccentric behaviour. He required Sadhana for shooting a college scene and a romantic song with him. However, she flatly refused to join the shooting. Her rejection is understandable as in early 1990s, Sadhana was around 50 and Raaj Kumar was 64. The audience would not have appreciated watching both of them in a college scene and singing a romantic song!

Finally, Raaj Kumar completed the film by using a double for shooting the unfinished scenes of Sadhana with long shots and her back to the camera in close-up scenes. Of other actors, only Waheeda Rehman agreed to resume shooting for her parts. The dialogues for the left-over scenes were written by Raaj Kumar himself. Panini, his younger son, provided the background music. Obviously, with a long delay in completing the film with patched-up works, the film was out of date. There were no takers for distributing the films. Finally, according to a comment on one of the songs uploaded on the video sharing platform, the film was released under a new title. ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) on VHS tapes in August 1994 for satellite TVs. I am not sure whether the film had a theatrical release anytime thereafter.

I have no idea about the story of ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994). Looking at the star cast of the film, the story appears to be a love triangle. All the 5 songs of the film which was released by HMV on LP in 1978 were retained in the film. 4 songs were written by Rajinder Krishan while one song which Qateel Shifai had already written for a Pakistani film in the early 70s was used with a new tune. All the songs were set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

I am presenting the first song, ‘bahaaron se kahenge nazaaron se kahenge’ from ‘Ulfat’ (1978, UR/‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi on the words of Rajinder Krishan. Kalyanji-Anandji composed the music. The song is picturised on Raaj Kumar and a double of Sadhana.

At first, I was not too keen to provide the link of the video clip of the song which was probably taken from VHS tape of the film. The visuals are very bad and audio quality is average. Also, it is a shorter clip than the audio clip which was released in 1978 under the film’s original title ‘Ulfat’. One can make out from the visuals in video clip that the female actor is not Sadhana but her double. The audio clip of the song is excellent in audio quality and is longer. In the audio clip, there is also a bonus addition of the sad version of the song with dialogues between Raaj Kumar and Sadhana.

With this song, ‘Ulfat Ki Nayi Manzilein’ (1994) makes its debut on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s is a “this happened to me” post. It was a “dream” more than a “dream come true”. A chance to see the Dream Girl in person on my last trip to Mumbai.

So this is what happened- we had just landed at Mumbai airport. I was very tired after a long day followed by a delayed-flight. I told my husband that today i am in no position to walk the distance to the baggage-claim and am planning to hop on to any buggy that ferries passengers and I did. There were two passengers already on that buggy and the lady who was sitting mentioned that the passenger who was in the buggy that overtook us was Hema Malini. And I was disappointed that I had missed having a glimpse of her.

When we reached the drop-off point, I saw that the Dream Girl had just got off and was being courteous with the airport staff and allowing selfies. Very hesitantly I waved out to her and she acknowledged. Then I hinted through action that I would like to come closer and also click pictures with her and she permitted. Then my husband clicked a picture and she said:- “you will not get a good pic from so far, come closer.” And we had one more click which I shared instantly with my children.

My son commented immediately “He has never seen me smile so brilliantly.” But my personal feeling was there can be no smile as Brilliant as that of the Dream Girl -Hema Malini. She still looks a dream, and carries herself so elegantly and majestically. She displayed no airs about being a star or MP i.e. Member of Parliament.

My husband mentioned to her that I was a huge fan of hers and occasionally write about her in the blog. To this she replied- “hope you don’t write anything uncomplimentary”, and I said “oh no, not at all. We write only about the songs and their related movies.” And she gave me her brilliant smile. But this is one encounter that will stay with me forever and I am yet to believe it happened to me.

Recently my husband asked me why I haven’t written about my experience and I said I was waiting for an occasion. Plus I was wondering which song of hers should go with the post, and on what occasion do I present it etc. Today seems to be a good enough occasion. The anniversary of the lyricist of the song.

It is the 18th anniversary of lyricist Anand Bakshi (21 July 1930 – 30 March 2002). He was born Bakshi Anand Prakash Vaid, in Rawalpindi, in modern day Pakistan. His family came to India in the aftermath of partition. Poetry writing was his hobby and when he joined the Indian Army he continued to write whenever time permitted.

All of this are well known facts about Anand Bakshi. We also know that simultaneously he tried marketing his songs to Mumbai film industry. He finally got discharged from the army in 1956 and tried to become a writer or singer but found his foothold as a lyrics writer and “Bhala Aadmi” in 1958 was his first released movie where he wrote four songs.

“Mehndi Lage Mere Haath” with music by Kalyanji Anandji was his first success. And then the songs which found a mark in the hearts and minds of cine-goers never stopped. His wish to sing in movies was fulfilled when he sand “Baaghon mein bahaar aayi” and another solo for “Mom Ki Gudiya” in 1972. he has sung few more songs but written close to 3500 and we have 1036 of them on the blog.

Coming back to today’s song. On my return from Mumbai, last weekend, I saw “Pratiggya”(1975) starring Hema Malini, Dharmendra and Ajit. I don’t remember seeing the movie at the time of its release. This was a movie produced by Dharmendra himself and had “main jat yamla pagla deewana” (the only song from the movie on the blog) which is still in the minds of the fans even after a lapse of 45 years.

Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music directors with whom Anand Bakshi collaborated in 302 movies. As I was writing this I came across the list of movies released in 1975, fifteen of which had songs written by Anand Bakshi, would like to know if it is a record of some kind.

The song with this post comes immediately after the song “jatt yamla pagla deewana” comes to a close. At the end of the song a drunk Ajit Singh (Dharmendra) falls into the river and dreams that Radha (Hema) is Sahibaan and he is Mirza.

So here is this love song where Hema looks a dream in the dream sequence and let us say Thank You to Anand Bakshi for leaving us this gem.


Song-Uthh neend se mirziya jaag jaa (Pratigya)(1975) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

aa aa aa aa

uthh neend se mirziya jaag ja aa

vo aa gaye badla lene nu
haan aan aan
tere dushman mere veer
bedardi teer kamaan se ae ae
teri chhaati denge cheer
aisa lagta hai pyaar ke ae
nahin achche kuchh sanjog
humko mar ke bhi soniya aa aa aa
nahin milne denge log

sun sahibaan ?? yaqeen ke
rakh pyaar ki laaj jara
meri bakki(??) se daran farishte
te jatt se dare khuda
aane de unko saamne
hone de lahu-luhaan
chupchaap tamaasha dekh tu u u u u
tere sadke meri jaan
ye baat nahin wo jaante
mere dushman tere veer
jo maar sake mujhe soniye
ae ae ae ae
nahin bana abhi vo teer

“Mr John”(1959) was produced by Nigam and directed by Indar for N K Productions, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Johny Walker, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Ifthikhar, Krishnakumari, Mumtaz, Tuntun, Mohan Choti, Kamal Mohan, Sampson, Uma Dutt, Ravi, Champal Lala, Rashid, Daraaz, Wahid, Genious, Tiwari, Ramlal, Anil, Singh, Jaani, Ghouse, Tarun Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Ajeet, B Fazl e Kareem, Mukhtaar, Pt Baijnath etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Mr John”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and Rafi. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by N Datta.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on Shyama and Johny Walker. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Mujhe dekho hoti der (Mr John)(1959) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

mujhe dekho hoti der
khade kyun mera rasta gher

sajan ghar jaane do o

na dekho din na dekho raat

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 16

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah yes, this one too. This iconic and popular song from the 1969 film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, reappeared in a shorter version in the 1972 film ‘Baazigar’. Albeit the use of this song is somewhat casual, and does not seem to fulfill any purpose, symbolic or otherwise. Seems like a time filler, as one goes through the initial part of the film.

The original from the film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ is a quite a well picturized song, with the reality of the situation moving into a surreal dream where the real village people performing the song are replaced by the hero and heroine, in heroine’s mind. All the songs of this film became very popular, and did contribute significantly to the rising graph of Jeetendra as a hero.

Fast forward three years later. The film ‘Baazigar’ in 1972, was a potential launch vehicle for Roopesh Kumar (cousin brother of actress Mumtaz), as a hero. He had made his debut in 1965, in supporting roles, both as a comic villain and in character riles. This was the first, and likely the only film in which he appears in the role of a hero.

Roopesh’s real name was Abbas Farashahi. He was born in Bombay on 16th Jan, 1946 (okay, just a week back was his birth anniversary, would have been 74). His father, Ali Asgar Farashahi had a very good restaurant and bakery business.  However, being involved in dramatics in school and college, he was more interested to make a career in films. With some support from his cousin sister Mumtaz, he started working in small supporting roles. His first appearance is in the film ‘Tarzan and King Kong’ in 1965.

He appeared in over 120 films from 1965 through 1995. The list of his films do make an impressive reading. Here is a partial list of his films from the period till 1980 – ‘Sapno Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Aadmi aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ (1969), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971), ‘Andaaz’ (1971), ‘Raampur Ka Lakshman’ (1972), ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Prabhat’ (1973), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Insaaniyat’ (1974), ‘Zinda Dil’ (1975), ‘Nagin’ (1976), ‘Karm’ (1977), ‘Dildaar’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), ‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979), ‘The Great Gambler’ (1979), ‘Lok Parlok’ (1979), ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) etc.

Hmm. . . interesting to note that he also appeared in ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, the original film for the song being presented today.

He also produced and directed two films – ‘Hai Meri Jaan’ (1991) and ‘Meri Aan’ (1993).

Roopesh Kumar passed away quite unexpectedly, at a young age of 49. He was attending the Filmfare awards program of 1995. He suffered a severe heart attack while at the program, and passed away on way to the hospital.

The song presented today is picturized as a game being played at a picnic. This is a picnic with a difference. The only participants are the leading lady, Vijaylalitha and her pet animals – a horse named Chetak and a dog named Tommy. These are the screen names of these pets. Their real names, as per the credits are Joker and Johny respectively. The song is being played on a gramophone, and the game – well you can view it in the accompanying video. The song seems to have been edited, as it appears to end abruptly after playing one full stanza and getting into the start of the second stanza.

Ah yes, this 1972 film makes its debut on our blog today.

Overall, a very casual re-use in my opinion.

Song – Aa Mere Humjoli Aa, Khelen Aankh Micholi Aa  (Baazigar) (1972) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
