Today’s song is from the film Khush Naseeb-46. It was an ordinary social film made by Indra Movietone. Directed by V. panchotiya, the film had music by Anupam Ghatak and Pt. Lachhiram Tomar. We do not know who wrote the film’s 12 songs or even who sang these songs. Only few songs(actually only 2) are available on YouTube and the uploader ( Sadanand Kamath ji) has identified singers by voice, wherever possible. The limited cast mentioned in HFGK lists names as Padma Devi, Rukmini Devi, Anjali Roy, Bela Rani and V.Panchotiya. This too being incomplete, we do noit have any idea about its Hero or other artistes.

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The II world war had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created Black marketing. This made many people Millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in Film making. The increased cost of Raw Films made filmmaking 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased in Lakhs instead of thousands.

In 1945, only 74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Further, in 1947, the film industry produced a record number of films – 181, but of course that was due to Partition. The quality of films was sacrificed at the cost of the quantity of films made in 1946. However, some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of filmmaking.

Film Dharati ke Lal-46 was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. Neecha Nagar-46 won the Grand Prix award in French Film Festival. Film Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46 was dubbed in English as ‘ The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946.

Year 1946 also saw the Debut of several stars and artistes. In fact one can call 1946 as the ” Debut year” of Hindi film industry. See this….

Nirupa Roy debuted in film Amar Raaj-46

Geeta Bali debuted with a dance in film Badnaami-46

Geeta Roy sang her first film song in film Bhakta Prahlad-46

Balraj Sahni debuted in film Insaaf-46. It was a small role,though.

K A Abbas-Director, Pt.Ravi Shankar-MD, Balraj Sahni as Hero and Damayanti Sahni as Heroine made their Debut in film Dharati Ke Lal-46

Meena kapoor sang her first Hindi film song in film Eight Days-46

Sudhir Phadke debuted as MD in film Gokul-46

P L Santoshi as Director, Dev Anand, Rehman, Rehana and Kamla Kotnis debuted as actors in film Hum Ek Hai-46

Chitragupta did his first film as MD in Lady Robin Hood-46

Ram Ganguly became MD with film Maharana Pratap-46

Abhi Bhattacharya debuted in film Milan-46

Chetan Anand as Director, Uma Anand and Kamini kaushal as actresses debuted in film Neecha Nagar-46

Hansraj Behl debuted as MD with film Pujari-46

Madhubala(as Baby Mumtaz) sang her first song in film Pujari-46

Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote his first Hindi film song in film Shahjahan-46

S D Burman as MD and Kishore Kumar as an actor debuted with film Shikari-46

So, you will find the year 1946 was truly an year of change. The winds of Partition were already blowing and the second line of supplementary artistes was ready to replace the Migrators, after the Partition.

Film Khush Naseeb-46 was directed by V.Panchotiya. Vithaldas Panchotiya ( 15 th October 1906 to 2-10-1987 ). Except those readers, who have a knowledge of early era Hindi films, it is unlikely that other readers might have even heard this name. In the early era, when the studio system was firmly established, the artistes employed by the studio had no specific duties. Anybody and everybody had to do what was needed by the company. Due to this many capable artistes became all rounders in film making.
Vithaldas Panchotiya was certainly one such person. He has been a Producer, Director, story writer, dialogue writer, screenplay writer, lyricist, Singer, Music Director and God knows what else !

Born in October 1906 in Vadnagar in Gujarat, he followed his father’s footsteps. His father worked in stage dramas and toured with the drama company. From the age of 8 years Vithaldas started acting in dramas. Later he joined Calcutta’s Alfred Drama company, owned by Madon Theatres Limited. He worked on a salary of Rs. 35 pm. While working in dramas, he established his own Gujarat Film company and produced 12 silent films in 10 years. Vithaldas first acted in silent film ‘ Dhruv charitra’-1921. He learnt dance and music too. He acted , directed, sang songs and gave music also. He acted in Talkie film ” Muflis Ashiqe”-1932, claimed to be India’s first comedy film. He acted, sang and composed music for this film.

Being a staunch Gandhian, he used to participate in rallies etc. Some of his films were Hindustan-32, Insaf ki Tope-34, Gaibi Gola-35 ( he was the writer and the director too.He gave a break to Baby Noorjahan in this film.), Khudai Khidamadgar-37 aka Garib ki Tope, Takdir ki Tope-38 etc . As per one source, he acted in 35 films, directed 10 talkie films, sang 8 songs, gave music to 1 film and wrote Lyrics to 2 films. Additionally story, dialogues and screenplay writing were also done by him. Some of his films were, Shaikh chilli-37, Khush naseeb-46, Prabhu ki maya-55, Ghar ki numaish-49, Karmaveer-38, Raman-54, Jagriti-54, Hum sab chor hain-56, Basant 60, Bhagvat mahima etc.

I find it very difficult to know exactly how many films he did in various capacities in the 1930s, as there are conflicting claims by him and Master Fida Hussain. In a few cases the details in HFGK and what he claims, gets contradicted. Some of his films in the 40s are Ramanuj-43, Giribala-47, Grihalaxmi-48, Ghar ki Numaish-48 ( released only in 1962, with the title ‘ Jai ho muhabbat ki ‘ )

Thanks to information and statistical data provided by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji of Surat, we know that his Filmography consists of a total 11+ 26 films. The break up is-

11 silent films
25 Talkie films as Actor and 1 film as a writer only.
9 films as a Director
2 films as Lyricist and
2 films as Music Director
As per Muvyz data, he sang 37 songs in 8 films.

from 1951 to 1960, he did 13 films- mostly ( 9) for Filmistan. He directed 2 of them. After 1960 his work was reduced. The death of his 3 sons broke him emotionally. As a true Gandhian, it was his dream to make a film- Gandhi Sangram- on mahatma Gandhi. He had done all the spade work and the Muhurat of shooting was also done on 2-10-1987, The Government had promised finance. Even Rajiv Gandhi promised him that. However nothing came to him and he died on 30-10-1996, with his dream unfulfilled.

His daughter Shradha used to work in Gujarati films. She too died in a Train accident in 2000. Her daughter Deepshikha is an actress.

I do not know the story or any other details of this film. Here is the first song from film Khush Naseeb-46,sung by an unidentified male and Zeenat Begum. With this song film Khush Naseeb-46 makes its Debut on this Blog.

( some information for this post is taken from an article by prof. Surjit singh ji and some from Harish ji, book 100 years of Hindi films by Antarkar and my notes)

Blog Day :

‘Radio days’ are here again for me. My new workplace is around 55 kms from my residential place, so it takes me around one hour or little a more than that, to reach office.

That gives me a good one-hour time in the morning and in the evening to tune in to ‘Vividh Bharati’.

In the morning my day starts normally with ‘Bharat Ki Goonj’, and in the evening it is ‘Shaam Sindoori’, ‘Sangeet Sarita’ and some part of ‘Jailmala’ if the ‘traffic’ on the way is more.

In the past two months I have got to listen many many songs which includes songs of ‘golden era’, new songs (from eighties onwards) and current or latest songs too.

Also, they include songs known to me and songs that I do not remember to have heard earlier. And the very latest songs which are totally new for me 😊

Today I am presenting one song of yesteryears which I liked a lot. This song is from the movie ‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’. I have not watched this movie and I was not aware of its details. But I liked this duet song (today’s) very much. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mohd Rafi. I do not remember this song getting included in any of the ‘song compilations’ brought out by HMV on audio cassettes in the eighties and nineties.

After listening to today’s song, I checked its details and watched its video. The song is lip-synced by Dheeraj and Vaishali on screen.

‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’ was directed by Rajesh Nahta for ‘Ranglok Productions, Bombay’. It had Dheeraj Kumar, Vaishali, Jayshree T., Rajendra Nath, Shatrughan Sinha, Manorama, Harindranath Chatopadhyay, Gajanan Jagirdar, Hercules, Vitthal, Praveen Pal, Shefali, Wajid Khan, Jeevan and others.

‘Raaton Ka Raja-1970’ had seven songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by the Rahul Dev Burman.

The details of the songs as listed in HFGK (Vol-IV, 19611-1970) is as given below;

S.No. Song Singer/s Posted on the Blog on
01 Raaton kaa raajaa hoon main Mohd Rafi 26.10.2014
02 Ae dekho to yahaan, koyi nahin hai Asha Bhonsle

It can be seen from the above table that four songs of this movie ‘Raaton Ka Raja’ have been posted on the blog.
Today’s song is the fifth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Let us now enjoy today’s lovely duet song …

Total upto 1963 684 movies 2209 2609 1830 594 135 48

It can be seen from the table of 1963 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 111 songs in movies released in 1963. As many as 103 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 37 movies of 1963 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 31 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 8 Lata songs belonging to 6 movies of 1963 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Bhootnath”(1963). This stunt movie was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Sevak Films, Bombay. The movie had Vijaya Chaudhary, Ranjan, MohanChoti, Rajan Haksar, Jeeankala, Ulhas, Kundan, Prem Sagar, Dan Singh, Lal Bahadur, Dalda, Roshanlal, Kumar Sahu, Laxmi Chhaaya, Chanda, Ameer, Daood, Shaida, Sundar, Nazeer Kashmiri etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it, including two Lata Mangeshkar solos. To songs from the movie (inclusding one Lata Mangeshkar solo has been covered in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Bhootnath”(1963). Keshav Trivdi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vedpal.

This lesser known song is a lovely song to listen to. The song is picturised on Vijaya Chaudhary I guess. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady lip syncing the song.Listening to this song, the first thought that crossed my mind was that this song is a hidden gem that deserved to be better known.


Song-Bhoole se kar liya pyaar (Bhootnath)(1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Keshav Trivedi, MD-Vedpal

Lyrics

bhoole se kar liya
bhoole se kar liya
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani ee
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani
deke jiya anmol

deke jiya anmol
leli badnaami
bhoole se kar liya pyar
ho gayi naadaani
bhoole se kar liya

kiski nazar ne dil par haaye
kiski nazar ne dil par haaye
jaadu sa kar daala
kiski meethhi yaad me naache
man mera matwaala
ho man mera matwaala
raah take hain kiski ankhiyaan
ho o
raah take hain kiski ankhiyaan
deewaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani ee
bhoole se kar liya

meethha meethha dard nasheela
meethha meethha dard nasheela
phail gaya nas nas mein
naa main apne bas mein rahi
naa manwa apne bas mein
naa manwa apne bas mein
khaali suhaani chot karli
ho o
khaali suhani chot karli manmaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani
bhoole se kar liya pyaar
ho gayi naadaani

76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar
————————————————————

Gham-e-dil sunnane ko jee chaahtaa hai
Tumhen aazmaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Sunaa hai ke jab se bohat door ho tum
Bohat door jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Unhen ham se koyi shikaayat nahin hai
Yunhi rootth jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Faqat hai yahi unn ki nazron ka dhokaa
Ke dhoke mein aane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Duaa hai ke ham se woh sau baar rootthen
Hamaara manaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

Nazar wo na aayen par unn ki gali mein
Yunhi aane jaane ko jee chaahtaa hai

—————————————————-
I could not find whose ghazal is this is, but giving it here as it rhymes with the title of the movie ‘Dil Chahta hai” (2001).

The song is a duet by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. All the songs of this film are penned by Javed Akhtar and composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. At the turn of the century, the melodious songs, sufiana, fusion, newer music instruments were all the new fad. And the foreign location shoots were also back with a bang in mainstream hindi films. It was not only the Yash Chopra films that were shot in Switzerland etc. There is the whole world to explore and Hindi films have been shot at many locations.

The film ‘Dil chahta hai’(2001) was shot at Australia, when the character Akash played by Amir Khan, moves to Sydney to look after his father business operation in Australia. The character of Akash was the meaty one in the film, with all the jokes to crack, all the drama to enact. It was the role of Sameer played by Saif Ali Khan that was less complex, understated but full of contradictions. Akshaye Khanna’s character was Siddarth, the quite sensitive artist, who looks at the world through the artistic eye.

I saw the movie again recently after this last post and thought again, that it is hard to believe that it is a 20 year old movie. Obviously made at the turn of the century, it has those vintage mobile phones, which look like antiques to today’s generation. Our generation has seen the most sweeping changes in lifestyle, of all the previous generations. The earlier generations, had very less comforts than us but I dare say their happiness quotients was higher than us, as they had less expectations and desires. The more our generation has achieved, it wants more of it, the comforts and the excitement, and thus losing out on the contentment in life.

Moving to the film, it has a few one liner jokes that have become a part of lingo between friends in my generation, like “hum log cake khaane ke liye kahin bhi jaa sakte hain”, ‘Waise bhi perfection ko improve karna mushkil hotaa hai”, ‘Kitni ajeeb baat hai, ke ham teenon hi Sydney jaa rahe hain – tum, main aur yeh flight” wagera wagera !

The song of this post is a duet by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, with composers producing unique musical sounds, using newly invented music instruments. The song is shot in and around Sydney, in parks showing ancient trees, with Amir and Priety take the arial tour in a helicopter, overlooking the famous Lotus shaped Opera house at the famous harbor, picnic in the garden near the marina, travel in the city bus etc. I am not sure if one of the parks shown is the Botanical garden or not. The characters are having food at the cafes, and roaming around down town or up town whichever way you want to look at it, walking the harbour bridge which has the railway, road and walkway on the same level, while singing this song. Literally a steel sheet re-enforced ghat is shown to emphasis the line ‘pyaar ke ghat jo utarte hain’, which is carpeted with Chinese grass :-).

After one such outing the couple is returning home by the metro train, when Priety misses it, and left alone at the platform, while the train moves away. While Priety is waiting, an old man looking like a poor street person is approaching her and she is scared. At the same time Aamir returns by the returning train, and seeing that the old man has scared Preity, goes and hugs the old man saying ‘did she scare you?” ‘she did? how mean of her”. This is a movie and hence the joke. The big city crime scene is not a joke anywhere in the world.

Australia is a unique country, in a sense second only to USA. USA has a lot more mixture of different races. But Australia is something, which never sought independence from the colonial powers, because by the time the British empire was done with the continent, the aboriginals were extinct and the survivors were the one who had come to serve the British interests. So, no nativity and no going back to the past and not much history recorded of the pre-colonial era. Only to look towards the future, which is not a bad state to be in, all things considering. No wonder, it has been the land of opportunities for European, Asians, chinese, afrikans and Polynesians alike in the 20th century. It thrives in its solitary splendor in the southern hemisphere with jewel like cities dotting its coast line. The Chinese might have been the neighbors of long forgotten aboriginal races of the continent, as the continent is a snug fit into the south china sea. When the continents were a single land mass, of course.

Today is the 76th Birthday of Javed Akhtar, so to celebrate, here is this new age song penned by him. A poet is a champion who plays with words, and Javed Akhtar is a champion of champions in this regard.


Song-Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain (Dil Chaahta Hai)(2001) Singers-Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics-Javed Akhtar, MD-Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

Lyrics

Jaane kyun log pyaar karte hain

Blog Day :

4565 Post No. : 16164

Regulars on the blog would have noticed that I was looking for movies where only one song was posted. Recently I shared some songs where I tried to add a second song to the ‘one song movies’ on the blog.

Then we also noticed that some movies were standing for a long time with ‘only one song’ represented on the blog for a long time. Some were fortunate to get represented with their second song because of the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ started with ‘2009-2019’ songs (from 02.02.2019).

The blog was started in the year 2008. And had the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ got started in 2018 the movies represented in 2008(and having only one song posted) would also have got reviewed and added with their second song.

So, movies introduced on the blog in 2008 missed the opportunity to get reviewed after ten years (and now we can say for around twelve-thirteen years)

I came across one such movie ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974’ which was introduced on the blog on 07.12.2008.
We added the second song of this movie on 14.12.2020 on the blog. The gap of posting between the two songs of above movie being ‘4390’ days.

So, let us wait and see who the winner is 😊

We are not yet concluding the ‘race’ (list) here, but adding one more movie which for now is already ahead of the ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam’ song.

S.No. Song Title Movie-Year First song Second Song Diff in days
01 Pyaar kiyaa nahin jaata ho jaata hai Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974 07.12.2008 —- —-
Achchha lagta hai ye bholaa bhaala sanwariya ___ 14.12.2020 4390 days
02 Lahron ki tarah yaadein Nishaan-1983 13.08.2008 Being presented today 4540 days

(we will keep updating this list if any other song ‘breaks’ the record of the movie ‘Nishaan’).

The first song from this movie ‘Nishaan-1983’ was posted on the blog on 13.08.2008.

‘Nishaan-1983’ was directed Surendra Mohan for ‘Brar Productions’.

It was produced by B.S. Shaad.

It had Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Rekha, Poonam Dhillon, Amrish Puri, Jeevan, Roopesh Kumar, Geeta Siddharth, Vijay Arora, Birbal, Satyen Kappu, C.S. Dubey, Jankidas, Rajan Haksar, Amarnath Mukherjee, Kamaldeep, Kanchan Mattu, Sarwar Kanwar, Shyam, Anand Girdhar, Shammi, Vijay, Baby Pinki, Master Rizwaan and others.

One known song from this movie ‘lahron ki tarah yaadein’ has been posted on the blog as mentioned above.

This movie had total six songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rajesh Roshan.

I remember that one more song from this movie i.e., ‘ankhiyon hi ankhiyon mein teri meri baat chali’ was also a popular song and frequently heard on radio (one may find this a typical L-P composition, but it is not 😊).

Another song which I liked from this movie is ‘beliyaa ab ke ye bahaar koi gul nayaa khilaayegi’.

But I am presenting a lesser heard song from this movie which one may find to be a Rajesh Roshan signature composition.

The song is duet song by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by Rekha and Jeetendra respectively.

let us now enjoy today’s song.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 1
———————————————————————————–
Blog Ten year Challenge, which was started in 2019 and which continued in 2020 as well, now enters 2021. This post is the first post for blog ten year challenge (2011-2021).

January 2011 was quite like January 2021, with only one or two songs being posted everyday. Unlike 2021, we already had DOT days in the year 2011 by 11 january 2011. Thankfully, these days I am very particular about avaoiding DOT days at any cost. As a result, the just concluded year 2020 sa NIL DOT days. The only other year in the bloh]g that had NIL DOT days as the year 2017.

This day on 2011 saw only one song being discussed and that song was a song from “Shola Aur Shabnam”(1961) namely Jeet hi lenge baazi ham tum…pyaar ka bandhan toote naa .

“Shola Aur Shabnam”(1961) was directed by Ramesh Sahgal for Parijat Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Tarla, Dharmendra, Abhi Bhattacharya, M Rajan, Mubarak, Vijaylaxmi, Jeeankala, Sulochana, Leela Mishra, Dhumal, Johny hisky, B N Shukla, B Perera, Baby Chandrkala, Master Akashdeep etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs that have been discussed so far:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting
1257 Jaane kyaa dhoondhti rahti hain 10 May 2009
1803 Jeet hi lenge baazi ham tum…pyaar ka bandhan toote naa 25 August 2009
3430 Ladi re ladi tujhse aankh jo ladi 11 January 2011
5983 Phir wohi saawan aayaa 21 May 2012
10393 Mathura Shyaam chale 22 October 201

The song under discussion today is sung by Rafi and Jagjeet Kaur. Khayyam is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to thro light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that the song was picturised on the lead pair of Tarla and Dharmendra.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.


Song-Pehle to aankh milaana (Shola Aur Shabnam)(1961) Singers-Rafi, Jagjeet Kaur, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Khayyaam

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

pehle to aankh milaana
phir thhoda sa sharmaana
sharma ke chale jaana
are waah waah waah wah
haan
pahle to paas bulaana
thhoda sa pyaar jataana
ghabra ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

kaise gori apne dil ki baat labon par laaun
arre kaise gori apne dil ki baat labon par laaun
husn tumhaara bijli jaisa
dekh ke main darr jaaun
main ik hindustani chhori
main kyun pyaar jataaun
main ik hindustani chhori
main kyun pyaar jataaun
itna kar sakti hoon
tujhko dekhoon aur muskaaun

ghoonghat pat ko sarkaana
phir thhoda sa muskaana
muskaa ke chale jana
arre waah waah waah waah
pahle to paas bulaana
thhoda sa pyaar jataana
ghabra ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

in aankhon ko o gori
tu kitni achchi laage
in aankhon ko o gori
tu kitni achchi laage
hum jaison se aakhir kyun tu haath chhudaakar bhaage
jab tu hans kar aankh milaaye
dil ye dhadkan laage
jab tu hans kar aankh milaaye
dil ye dhadkan laage
jee chaahe main sharmaaker dil rakh doon tere aage

pehle ban thhan ke aana
hamen thoda sa tarsaana
tarsaa ke chale jaana
are waah waah waah waah
kamaal hai
pehle to paas bulaana
thhoda sa pyaar jataana
ghabra ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

pehle to aankh milaana
phir thhoda sa sharmaana
sharma ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (02)
————————————–————————————–

Among Geeta Dutt’s endearing songs, there are innumerable duets. Maximum no. of her duets is bound to be with Mohammed Rafi sahab, for the obvious reason that at the times she was most active, coincides with the period when various music directors were having all male songs sung by Rafi sahab. So there are films where Rafi sahab has duets with Lata, Asha and Geeta, plus solos by all of them, with a female duet also thrown it. This would be a typical late 50’s music score. Sometimes a female singer or two are changed and Shamshad Begum is there, with one solo and/or duet.

Looking for major co-singers for Geeta Dutt among the 900 songs already posted in the blog, I have found this list:

Geeta Dutt duets with major playback singers Total duets in the blog
Rafi Geeta Dutt Duets 111
Talat Mehmoood Geeta Dutt duets 21
Lata Geeta Dutt duets 17
Kishore Kumar Geeta Dutt duets 13
Geeta Dutt-Asha Bhonsle duets 25
Mukesh Geeta Dutt duets 14
Shamshad Begam-Geeta Dutt duets 9
Manna Dey Geeta Dutt duets 17
Hemant Kumar Geeta Dutt duets 19
Geeta Dutt Mahendra Kapoor duets 7
G M Durrani Geeta Dutt duets 16
C Ramchandra Geeta Dutt duets 5

While no other singer is crossing the 25 mark in the blog, the duets with Rafi sahab are at 111, so far and counting. I was surprised to find so few with Mukesh at 14 and Shamshad Begum at 9. Mukesh is at 792/932, so the possibility of few more duets with Geeta Dutt is there. Shamshad Begum is at 701/1273, so maybe a few more of these female duets are out there, waiting their turn.

I found this very nice sad melancholy duet of hers with Talat Mehmood. Considering that 386 out of 450 songs of Talat Mehmood are posted in the blog, I am glad to have found not one but two duets of these two. Even then I am optimistic that these two can reach the figure of 25. Presently they are at 21, plus the two song I have found, makes it 23. Let us see where the tally will reach finally.

This song from the film ‘Dr. Z’ is written by Akhtar Romani, and composed by Manohar Arora. These 4 songs of this film are already posted in the blog.

Song Posted on
Hello sweety seventeen 9 September 2011
Ye bheegi bheegi raat gagan par taaron ki baaraat 31 October 2018
Main hoon bhaiyya dim timkar 1 March 2019
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani 17 November 2020

Geeta Dutt has three duets to sing in this film one each with Mohammed Rafi, S. Balbir and Talat Mehmood. With this post all three duets by Geeta Dutt in this movie are posted.

Out of 900 odd songs already posted, I can guess less than 350 are duets. Going by this trend remaining 500 songs of Geeta Dutt, 80+ songs with Rafi appeared unlikely, so as to make them 200. I have counted total 147 songs of these two including group songs. So roughly less than 20 duets of Geeta Dutt-Rafi are still at large, we have to catch them sooner or later :-).

The tune of the song reminds me of this 1961 song.


Song-Dil ko laga ke bhool ki dil ka nishaan mitaa diya (Dr Z)(1959) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Akhtar Romani, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

dil ko laga ke bhool ki ee
dil ka nisha mita diya aa
dil ka nishaan mita diya
humne bhari bahaar mein
apna chaman jala diya aa
apna chaman jala diya
(aa aa aa aa)

duniya ki har jafa sahi
kuchh bhi magar na keh sake
duniya ki har jafa sahi
kuchh bhi magar na keh sake
humne wafa ke naam par
jo kuchh bhi thha luta diya aa
jo kuchh bhi thha luta diya(aa aa aa aa aa)

shiqwa kisi se kya karen
marzi hai ye naseeb ki
shiqwa kisi se kya karen
marzi hai ye naseeb ki
chaaha jise mita diya
chaaha jise bana diya
dil ka nishaan mita diya
(aa aa aa aa aa)

leke falak ke chaand ko
koi kare to kya kare
leke falak ke chaand ko
koi kare to kya kare
apna bhi ek chaand thha
duniya ne jo chhupa diya aa
duniya ne jo chhupa diya(aa aa aa aa aa)

kis ko khabar thhi pyaar mein
jal jal ke khaaq honge hum
kis ko khabar thhi pyaar mein
jal jal ke khaaq honge hum
khaaq ka kya jahaan mili
jisko mili uda diya aa
jisko mili uda diya
(aa aa aa aa)
hamne bhari bahaar mein
apna chaman jala diya aa
apna chaman jala diya
(aa aa aa aa)

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 117 #Happy Birthday Reena Roy
———————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1978’ movie ‘Karmayogi’. I was longing to share a song from this movie and launch this movie on the blog since long (actually for many years now 😊).

However, the song I had earlier planned to share is not today’s song, but a different song from this movie.

Today’s song was heard frequently on radio and loudspeakers in those days when I was about ten and half years old (considering the date of censor certificate of this movie).

The reason for introducing this song today here on the blog is to celebrate and wish yesteryears beautiful actress Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’ today. She turns sixty-three today (born on 7th January’1957).

We wish her a safe, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I had in my earlier post mentioned about Reena Roy’s movies that I watched and liked too, so I am not going to repeat the same here. We will straightway come to today’s movie and the song.

‘Karmayogi-1978’ was directed by Ram Maheshwari for ‘A.R. Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Anil Suri. It had Mala Sinha, Rajkumar, Jeetendra, Rekha, Reena Roy, Ajit, Nazeer Hussain, Jagirdar, Yogita Bali, Sudhir Dalvi, Dheeraj, Kanhaiyalal, Jagdeep, Dhoomal, Mushtaq Merchant, Omkar Ema, Chandrashekhar, Jagdish Raj, Master Abbas, Master Parvez, Master Rajiv, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1978.

This movie had six songs, including one multiple version song. Lyrics for all songs were written by Verma Malik and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey were the playback singers for this movie.
Lata Mangeshkar had sung only one solo song in this movie and this is the same song being presented today.
None of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1978’ or 1979. However, today’s song made it to the ‘shadow list’ of songs or ‘songs of the next rung’ of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1979.

I had watched this movie on VCR during my stay at Kota circa 1990-1991. Though I have now forgotten the story of the movie, but I always remember a song from this movie. That song is another song sung by Asha Bhonsle and picturized 0n Rekha.

I had forgotten about today’s song but recently when I checked the Asha Bhonsle song for a post, I rediscovered this Lata Mangeshkar song. After listening to it, I recalled that this song was playedfrequently on loudspeakers during its time.

That is all for this post today. We wait for the next interesting post with other song of this movie. Till then let us once again wish Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’, and listen to today’s lovely song …

As mentioned above this song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lyrics are penned by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

With today’s song ‘Karmayogi-1978’ makes its debut on the blog. 😊

R. D. Burman – 27th Death Anniversary on 04.01.2021
———————————————————————-
Summer vacation (1981):

I have just now checked the release date of Rocky 1981 is 8th May, 1981. So someday after 8th May, that year I have seen this movie at Belgaum in a theatre, called ‘Roopali”. Most of our local cousins, and some of their cousins were all collected at my elder uncle(Mamu)’s place at Belgaum. So many people of different age group were there, so lunch was a hotch-potch hurried affair. There was a railway crossing involved between the house and the theatre. A cousin was sent ahead on bicycle to get the tickets from the counter, as a new movie’s first show was likely to get houseful. By the time we all reached the theatre in batches of two’s and three, walking all the way, the boy had gotten the tickets. Rest of it is a blur, I remember only snatches of films scenes, story is all forgotten. Songs were quite popular and all were good quality songs. They were heard over the years, so remembering them is no problem.

I have thought of posting a song from this film in the past too, but the song that readily came to mind is ‘Kya yahi pyar hai” which is already posted.

We are commemorating R. D. Burman’s 27th Death anniversary on 04.01.2021, so this song from Rocky is presented. Though I was not aware that this song is in ‘Rocky’ the song’s words, music, tune everything is there in memory. The lyrics I could write from the memory also, that is the magic of input given to the young mind.

R.D.Burman is the composer here and Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The singers the Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar giving playback for Sanjay Dutt and Tina Munim. This was a movie made for launching of Sanjay Dutt, and was directed by Sunil Dutt, as per the credits at imdb. This was also the first movie of Shakti Kapoor. Editor remark:-Shakti Kapoor had made his debut in 1970s itself. “Darwaza”(1977) is a case in point.

Song Date of posting
Kya yahi pyaar hai (Rocky) 5 January 2015
Aa dekhen zara kis mein kitna hai dam (Rocky) 4 September 2015

The video links of this movie’s songs are not available of youtube. I could find only the audio links.

This is a nice hummable duet with good music orchestration.

Meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai

ho o o naam gum jaayegaaaaaa
chehra yeh badal jaayegaa
meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai ae
gar yaad rahe

I wonder if human voices are like DNA or fingerprints, as no two voices are ever absolutely the same. In blood relatives the voices are very similar, but they are also distinguishable with slight differing inflections. We have experienced such situations where, we have not met a person for a few years, but as soon as we hear their voice, without seeing them at first, we recognize the person and the face flashes before the eyes, before we turn around and actually see that person.

Connecting with people on the cell phone is not the same. We tend to recognise people by the names which are saved in the phone. If people with whom we have lost touch, call on the phone, most of the times they have to identify themselves. Unless it is a person who is very close to us, it is most likely that it will not be recognised. Reliance on technology is eroding the human capacities of recognition and memory. The adventure of people calling from faraway places and the delight that was felt when hearing from loved one on landline phones is dwindled.

Now the last few weeks, I was on vacation, ostensibly for the special occasion of my 3rd century post. I have been looking to find some more songs and more importantly outdoorsy songs, to write posts. There are many thousand songs filmed on locations around the world in newer hindi films. Quite a few of them are very nice and decent songs. Pleasing on the ears and on the eyes.

I don’t want to run more concurrent series, so this will be random song post in between, picturised on outdoor exotic(read fresh) locations.

I talked of voices and inflection in the opening paragraph of this post. The voice of Meena Kumari is a distinct lively sound and I though the voice of ZebaBakhtiar carries some similar inflections to Meena Kumari’s voice. Zeba is a Pakistani actor who played the lead role in the R.K. Films ‘Henna’ 1991. The clothes worn by her in this one film have had a lasting impact on Indian fashions and clothing style for women for these 3 decades. This film brought the ‘Anarkali’ pattern with a bang, and the style has carved a niche in the Indian dressy and formal outlook. Common Indians like to be modestly and festively dressed in weddings and functions, prefer this style. The ‘Anarkali’ once arrived has made itself a permanent fixture in the wardrobes of Indian fashionistas and commoners. The Anarkali has changed various avatars, but it has stayed ahead of the traditional chaniya choli in high fashion.

Bhanu Athaiya(April 28, 1929 – October 15, 2020) is the costume designerfor ‘Henna’ 1991, the first Indian to have won an Oscar award, which she did for ‘Gandhi’ 1982.

I have seen a few songs of Henna just now, and found a couple of imaginatively picturised on location songs. The song being presented here is a Lata solo, written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have chosen this song, for its melodious tune and also for its picturization showing snowy mountains, green manicured gardens and around an unmanicured river locations at ‘Austria’.

It is clear from what I have seen today, that though the idea of this film was conceived by Raj Kapoor, but the actual filming in done after the death of Raj Kapoor. Only one song, the qawwali has so far been covered in the blog, so this is the second song to posted from this film.

In this song, I think Zeba dances like a doll, and her moves are totally without avarice. Appreciable that she has looked this good on screen, only on the strength of the dresses and some makeup which is rather a distraction from her real beauty. The narrow shouldered fragile look is another thing she shares with the young Meena Kumari.

Since today is new year day of the Gregorian calender, followed the world over, here is the pragmatic Faiz Ahmed Faiz:

– Naya saal –
Aye naye saal bataa tujh mein nayapan kya hai
Har taraf khalq ne kyun shor macha rakkha hai

Din ki roshi wahi, taaron bhari raat wahi
Aaj ham ko nazar aati hai har ek baat wahi

Aasmaan badla, afsos na badley hai zameen
Ek hindse ka badalna koyi jiddat to nahin

Agle barson ki tarah honge kareene tere
Kise maaloom nahi? barah mahine tere

Tu naya hai to dikha subah nayi shaam nayi
Warna in aankhon ne dekhe hain naye saal kayee
