64th Birthday of Ranjeeta Kaur – 22.09.2020
———————————————————
I wish life could be just a song for the road just like this song on a motorcycle. A song heard in childhood, mainly on radio. In 1980 we had a T.V. at home, but that was only aired in the evening. The radio could be heard during the day also, but they were on air for specific hours only, be it “vividh bharati” or “All india Radio”, of which urdu service was the one for film songs. All these years the lyrics of the song complete with the first stanza have stayed in the memory. After the advent of youtube, I may have looked up this song too alongwith many other old songs.

I have seen quite a few films of Ranjeeta while she was active in the 80’s, as I and my mother used to like her innocent, homely looks. Many of these films were B grade low-budget films like ‘Qismat”, “Tarana” and ‘Khwaab” to name a few. She was paired with Mithun Chakrovorty in these films. I was under the impression that “Ankhiyon ke jharoke se”(1978) was a debut film for her, whereas she had appeared in the hit film “Laila Majnu” in 1976, opposite Rishi Kapoor. Both these are notable films of her career. But there after she appeared in few A grade films in bit roles like ‘‘Rajput”, “Satte Pe Satta” and “Krodhi”. Films like “Ham se Badhkar kaun”, “Aap to aise na the”, “Ustadi Ustad se” and “Tarana” are all seen and forgotten films.

As Ranjeeta Kaur turns 64 today, I am presenting this happy romantic song where she is singing this duet on motorcycle and the beach. The name of the film is “Khwaab”(1980) and singers are Hemlata and Yasudas. The lyricist and music director is Ravindra Jain.

Two songs from the film are posted.
Tu hi wo haseen hai
Ek aas liye vishwaas liye

“Khwaab” is one of its kind title as I could find no other film with the title as ‘Khwab” or ‘Khwaab”. The word means dream, and this year 2020 is turning out like a bad dream. I am sure all of us have had this feeling that we are asleep and embroiled in a bad dream, and hope fervently that we will wake up soon and this whole tragic crisis will disappear. Hope that it will dissolve like a bad dream, is soon forgotten.

Let us go to the song, which I would have categorized as a “in the family way songs” seeing the words of first stanza, but this one is not such a song. I have a few songs for this category in mind. Let us see when I get around to those songs. They are mostly 80’s/90’s songs, so this can be a precursor to that series.

This song starts with the urdu alphabet ‘khai’ making it one of rare songs for ‘antakshari” 🙂 . Only other song I can remember is “khwaab ho tum ya koyi haqeeqat kaun ho tum batlaao……..”. Not that most people bother with the fine distinction between the ‘kh’ of “khilauna” and ‘kh’ of ‘Khwaab’. I can wish all I want for a way of distinguishing it in the English script, with a dot or some such thing. Rekhta.com has adopted an entirely different way of spelling the urdu /hindi words in English script, which is rather complicated even for someone like me. Urdu is a language with fewest dictionary words. Sometimes the same word is used for different meanings in different situation. One example is the word “taarikh” which means “date” and history, but not inclusive. Then there is the confusion with ‘q’ and ‘k’.

Common words where K is correct are :
Mushkil – difficulty
Ashk – tear (aansoo)
Rashk – envy
Shak – doubt
Kalaam – spoken word or talk
Shikwa – grievance
Shikayat – complaint
Shaukat – power or dignity

Q is appropriate here :
Qalam – pen
Ishq – love
Raqs – dance
Qalb – heart
Sadaqah – charity (sort of)
Beqaraar – restless, disturbed
Shauq – deep interest, zeal
Qataar – line, queue or array
Iqraar – acceptance or agree, promise

And there is added complication of words where ‘Q’ is compulsorily written as ‘que’ as it is done in ‘Ishque’ or ‘aashiqui’ or some names such as siddique and taarique. I have not gotten to two different alphabet with different sounds for whom the alphabet ‘t’ is used. The ‘t’ of ‘taara’ is different from the ‘t’ of ‘totaa’. There is confusion galore for the untutored. So we let it be, the ‘no pain no gain’ school of thought be brushed under the carpet 🙂 .

Now that I have heard the song two three times, I have realized that it remained in the memory because of its very sweet and melodious sound. It is memorable for the lyrics as well as tune and the singing of both Hemlata and Yasudas.

Both

Lyrics

khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein

mil ke rahenge donon
armaanon ki jannat mein
ham apne khwaab ko
badal denge ae
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge ae
haqeeqat mein

chhotaa sa ek ghar hogaa
haan chhotaa sa ek ghar hogaa
aur ghar mein honge
saanwle salone

hanste bolte khilaune
ham do hamaare do
nahin nahin
mere do tumhaare do
kat jaayegaa ye jeewan
unhi ki hifaajat mein
ham apne khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein

kabhi kabhi
beete dinon par
jaayegi jab nazar
oo ooo
sochenge kitne haseen thhe
woh shaam woh sehar

oo ooo
sochenge kitne haseen thhe
woh shaam woh sehar

nit aayengi bahaaren
nit khilenge phool suhaane
oo hoo ooo
nit aayengi bahaaren
nit khilenge phool suhaane

yoonhi rahenge zamaanon tak
khushiyon ke zamaane
aa haa haa
aa haa haa
ham tum judaa na honge
ab to kisi soorat mein
ham apne khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.


Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
