Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 18
————————————————

‘Pyaasa Saawan’ (1981) is one of the lovely reminders of those movie watching days, when we were (for me) watching movies either with elders in the family or with siblings and cousins or sometimes together with all. Those were the days when movie watching was the biggest attraction after ‘print media’, ‘radio’, and ‘cricket’ (for me).

To be a ‘fan’ of ‘Rajesh Khanna’ was still a year or two in the future to happen.

Another reminder of this movie are of course its songs. Particularly ‘Megha Re Megha Re’ and ‘Tera Saath Hai To’. Other songs of this movie were also good and they were frequently played on radio or loudspeakers.

The first song from this movie to be posted on the blog was ‘Tera Saath Hai To’. It was ten years ago, on 17.03.2009 and so far, no comment appears on this song on the blog. However, and that is another reason for this article of today, this song was covered only with one version and i.e. the female version sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Whereas, the song is a ‘multiple version’ song and the male version is sung by Kamlesh Awasthi. I am also sharing the lyrics for this male version of the song with a request to our ‘Editors’ to please update this in the ‘main post’. Also, the third stanza in the ‘female version’ was not included in the post of 17.03.2009, which I have included in full lyrics and would request Shri Atul ji and Shri Sudhir ji to kindly update in this song’s post.

Now coming back to the ‘ten-year challenge’ – 2009-2019 – the other movies represented on the blog that day i.e. on 17.03.2009 were;

  • ‘Dost’ (1974) (all songs have already been covered and needs to painted ‘red’)
  • ‘Deewaana’ (1992)
  • ‘Manchali’ (1973)
  • ‘Parwana’ (1971)
  • ‘Baat Ek Raat Ki’ (1962)

All the above movies except ‘Deewaana’ and ‘Pyaasa Saawan’ have already been covered for their all songs on the blog and Yippeeee’ed 🙂

‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ was directed by Dasari Narayan Rao for Tirupati Pictures Combine, Bombay. It was produced by Prasan Kapoor (brother of actor Jeetendra) and as such it was Jeetendra’s home production. Dasari Narayan Rao had also written the story and screenplay of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by GG Krishna Rao. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.08.1981.

The film has Jeetendra (in double role), Moushumi Chatterjee, Reena Roy, Deven Verma, Madan Puri, Asha Lata, Javed, Duggal, NS Bedi, Prem Kumar, Umesh Khanna, Ashok Saxena, Babloo, Babban, Raghvaiyya, Ashok Shivpuri, Heera, Billi, BA Subba Rao, Mahmood Khan, and Verma. Vinod Mehra and Aruna Irani make a special appearance in this movie, and Kumar Aditya makes a guest appearance.

This movie has six songs (including one multiple version song). All its songs are written by Santosh Anand and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar and Kamlesh Awasthi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three songs of this movie have been posted on the blog earlier and third, other than the two mentioned above is ‘O Meri Chhamak ChhalloThe song being posted today is the fifth song from this movie and that considering of the updating of the multiple version song.

All the songs from this movie were quite good songs and enjoyable songs – ‘Megha Re Megha Re’ and ‘Tera Saath Hai To’ are the ones which I liked most. Though I had watched this movie then I did not remember it completely and as I was preparing for this article I was recollecting its story and other songs. As Atul ji has mentioned in his post while presenting the first song from this movie on the blog, the movie reminds of the ‘Chadamama’ stories. Yes of course!!

Because here we see a Father becoming wealthier after lot of struggle and hard work and though neglecting his wife in the process of accumulating wealth and losing her up brings his only son with lot of love. And when once he has to attend the birthday celebration of this son, and he didn’t get a ticket in the flight (no advance booking may be 🙂 ) he orders his secretary to ‘charter a plane’ and finally reaching only to see that his son is not at home but enjoying in a club. . . (To be concluded 🙂 )

The son also finds himself in a similar situation like his father, when he takes over the family business and his marriage comes to a stage of ‘divorce’. But finally the Father saves it all and we have a ‘happy ending’ there 🙂

Let us now enjoy the today’s song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar. Lyrics are by Santosh Anand and it is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. On screen it is performed by Jeetendra and the beautiful Reena Roy!!

Song – In Haseen Waadiyon Se  (Pyaasa Saawan) (1981) Singer – Suresh Wadkar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Blog Day : 3894 Post No. : 14931

Today’s song is from the film Jungle ki Duniya-59. From the title itself, it is clear that it was one of those C grade films, in which stories take place on the background of Jungle and generally centre around a lost child who is inheritor of a big estate.

Most of us like to see films, be it on a TV, in a cinema hall,or through DVD. Some like old films some like new films.

Did you ever see films like, Khooni Khanzar,Dagabaj Doctor,Shaitaan ka paash,Char chakram,Daku Rani Talwarwali,Jaadu ka dandaa,Zinda Laash,Revolver Rani,Sindbad-Alladin-Alibaba,Flying man,Fighter Sheela,Khooni Darinda,Tarzan aur Jadugar,Tarzan aur Jadui Chiraag,Golden Gang,Murde ki jaan khatare mein,or Jadui putli ?

I bet none of these movie names have been even heard by you.These are all STUNT FILMS or in other words ‘C’ grade films.

In India I really wonder how the classification or Grading of films is done,or who is the person or the body authorised to do it. Because Censor Certificates do not label A B or C grades at all. Then how does this happen ?

My guess is that films are graded on 2 counts- One, The cost of production or Budget and the class of stars in it and Two, The class of people for whom the film is made or directed, like the Rich, middle and the Poor class. Whatever the basis,there is a very thin line between A and B grade films,while between these two and the C grade films,the line is very Bold and thick indeed !

Stunt films, Costume films,fantasy films and purely Religious films are normally treated as C grade films. These film do not carry any prestige, the actors working in them are exclusive to C grade films,the production values and the budget is quite low and most important, they are ALWAYS shown in theatres situated in older parts of the town, single screens, or only for Morning shows or in Theatres generally frequented by lower strata of society.

A person seeing/loving or craving for such films is generally considered a ‘Low’ creature and a person with ‘child brain’.

In India ,this is the fate of C grade films.Actually these films have everything that A and B grade films have,like,story,songs,dances,fights etc,but still,the treatment given to handling of the story etc in the films is very poor or lacking in expertise.

Stunts have improved,Technology has evolved but the participation of Zippy the Monkey,Tiger the Horse,Moti the Dog,parrots,snakes and khatara cars named Rolls Royce ki beti and Austin ki Bachhi is missing ! The contribution of Fearless Nadia in making Stunt films popular can not be denied,but then she had the backing of companies like Wadia Movietone.Basant pictures,Ranjit,Sagar,national etc. When you read the stories of these films please don’t employ Logic or common sense to it. This is a different world altogether.The set of actors is fixed,many times the composers are unheard of or they are known composers now in bad shape,the Directors are typical and the production houses are exclusive to churn out such films.

It is,nevertheless,a fact that many well known and famous actors and actresses of the 40s and 50s evolved from the stunt films of yore. Examples are Jairaj or Master Bhagwan. Can you believe that this roly-poli Bhagwan dada was a great body-builder when he started in stunt films in the late 20s and 30s ? Lalita Pawar(Amboo),Madhuri,Rampyari,Miss Moti,Sabita Devi,and Sulochans(Ruby Myers) are some female examples who graduated to Social films via Stunt films.

Sometimes Gems are found in these C grade films. Remember the famous qawwaali- Hamen to loot liya mil ke husnwalon ne- which had the honour of becoming the prestigious 5000 th song in this Blog ? This was from a C grade film- AL HILAL.

In my younger age I was fond of stunt films and used to travel to theatres in Old city of Hyderabad,to watch films featuring Kamran (father of famous choreographer and Director Farah khan and Director,comedian,Anchor Sajid Khan),Naazi,Bhagwan and many such actors.” Adventures of captain marvel and Trip to the Moon” were my favourites from Hollywood’s republic Serial productions.

In the 50s and 60s,some respectability to these stunt films was brought by actors like Mahipal,Ranjan,Dara Singh,Azad,Hemant Birje etc.The set of Heroines was also set to Mumtaz,tabassum,Vijaya chaudhary,Indira,nishi etc.Mumtaz started with Stunts and graduated to greater heights and was counted in Top actresses of her days. Costume and Stunt films like Baaz,Insaniyat and Azaad etc were made respectable by the stars acting in them.

Over a period the picture changed and nowadays every alternate film has breath-taking stunts done by almost all top Heroes.

Action/Stunt films have a major segment and that is films made with Jungle as a background. Such films had their inspiration from Hollywood Tarzan films. The original Tarzan story was written by Sir Edgar Rice Burrows and it was first published in 1912,followed by its 23 sequels.The story proved to be immensely popular.No wonder,then,that it attracted the Hollywood producers.

The First Silent film ” Tarzan of the Apes” was released in 1918 in which Tarzan’s role was done by Elmo Lincoln and Jane Porter was Enid Markey.From 1918 to 2008,Hollywood has made 89 Tarzan Films. The First Talkie film on Tarzan was ” Tarzan-The Ape Man” in 1932.Johnny Weissmuller was doing Tarzan’s role and Maureen O’Sulivan was Jane in it. Johnny was a German bred Romanian settled in America.He was an Olympic Swimming Champion with 5 Gold medals.The pair of Johnny and Maurine was very popular. Johnny Weissmuller did 12 films of Tarzan from 1932 to 1948. 6 films with Maureen,2 without any Jane and 4 with Brenda Joyce.After Johnny 5 Tarzan films were done by Lex Barker and 6 were done by Gordon Scot.After 1960,there were different Tarzan actors in every film. The Chimpanzee “Cheetah” was there in films from 1932 to 1960,when he died.

In most films,the scripts were loyal to the novels.However,in the novel,Tarzan and Jane get married and they have a son too.But in films,they never got married and their son ” BOY ” was found and adopted by Jane. There was one film ” Tarzan goes to India”-1962, in which Firoz khan,Simi garewal,jagdish Raj (as Police Inspector),Murad and G.raghavan had also acted.

In western films,the popular roles are done by the same actors in many films and they are known by that character.For example Sean Connery is famous for James Bond roles,similarly,Johnny Weissmuller is known for his Tarzan roles.These actors later did many other films but their names were connected to the famous roles for ever. In India,we do not find such consistency.Here the actor is known by the Genre of his specialty films-like tragedy films-Dilip kumar,Comedy Films-kishore kumar,Romantic films-Dev Anand, Action Films-Akshay kumar etc.

In India, the core concepts of famous stories on Tarzan, Mythology or folk/costume are adapted by our film makers with great talent and creativity. While doing so,they have twisted the Time frame, boundaries of famous stories have been scaled with exceptional ease and an unusual mixture of story characters woven into films. For example, films like Sindbad, Alibaba and Alladin-65 or Shankar, Seeta and Anusuya-65 can only be thought of by the most creative and innovative story writers !

Famous character Tarzan has been combined in Hindi films with Delialah, King Kong, Circus, Cobra, Gorilla, Hercules, Jadugar, Magic lamp, Jalpari, Paristan, Fairyland and even Delhi ! For our film makers Time and History are no barriers. Tarzan has been adapted to its Indian Avatar in the form of Zambo, Zimbo, Zango and Zingaro.

Films with Jungle Titles are almost 60. Here too, the kind of variety in Titles will surprise you. Jungle is coupled with Boy, Beta, Man, King, Jawan, Jawahar, Hero, Girl, Goddess, Princess, Chandni, Sherni, Nagin, Queen, Love, Love story, Haseena, Hoor, Ladki, Sundari, Jawani, Pyar, Muhabbat etc etc. There is one Junglee Tarzan also to sum up the titles.

Today’s film Jungle ki Duniya-59 was made by Swastik Chitramala, produced by C J Kansara, directed by B N Choudhari (Ret Mahal-49 and Bedard-49). Music was by one film wonder Jugal Banerjee. There were 7 songs, recorded in 1956, but the film was censored only in 1959. The film cast was Indira, Baburao pehelwan, Umesh Sharma, Habib, Kesari, Heera Sawant, Kailash Kumari etc etc.

The Heroine was Indira. This is a ‘Same Name Confusion’ artiste. During the silent Era and early Talkie period, there was one Indira Devi. her real name was Effie Hippolet- an Anglo-Indian She acted in silent films since 1927, but did only one Talike-Wamaq Azra-1935. Then there is the comedian fatty Indira Bansal This Indira was different.

Indira, one of Punjabi cinema’s most popular leading ladies of the 1960s, was born on August 6, 1938 in northern India. Growing up in an aristocratic family in the Punjab village of Kharian, her family lost everything when they had to flee their home during partition to settle in Kanpur. In 1952 her family shifted to Bombay where an Elder brother ran a successful business.

Indira was noticed by the popular comedienne Bhagwan while he was shooting a movie at Jagriti Studios, and she was put in the cast of his film Rangeela (1953). Raj Kapoor, who happened to be visiting the set of Rangeela, noticed Indira and later cast her as the daughter of a rich industrialist in his film Shree 420 (1955).

Indira continued to appear in supporting roles in major Hindi productions like Funtoosh (1956), Yahudi (1958), and Dil Deke Dekho(1959). She had just appeared as the lead in the low budget yarn Jungle Ki Duniya (1959) when she was cast as the heroine in a Punjabi film titled Yamla Jatt in 1960. This was followed that same year by two more Punjabi pictures, Do Lacchian and Kiklee. All three films were very successful.

Returning to Hindi language movies, she found herself much in demand for B-films with colorful titles like Maya Mahal (1963), Jungle Boy (1963), Tarzan Aur Jadugar (1963), Pahadi Nagin (1964), Arab Ka Lal (1964), Son of Zimbo (1966), Sheba and Hercules (1967), Tarzan in Fairyland (1968) and CID Agent 302 (1968), sometimes playing the heroine, but more often than not as a vamp or villain. Occasionally she would snag a nice supporting role in a major production like Do Dil (1965) or Mere Huzoor (1968), and she still continued to star in Punjabi fare.

Sometimes billed as Indira Billi (her real name was Indira Kaur) she was interviewed in 1963 for Picturpost magazine where she talked about her beginnings: “I had not the good fortune of stepping into films and finding myself a heroine right from the start as had been the case with many glamour girls these days. It was a life of toil and tears, fighting every inch, every day, and month after month. Sometimes I was fed up, felt tired of the ceaseless struggle to make my presence felt. With the struggle for existence keen and with not enough money, those early days were none too happy for a girl aspiring for a respectable place in the film world, let alone stardom. Sometimes I had my misgivings whether I was right in coming into films. Some kind of inferiority complex took hold of me and I thought several times that I would never become a star.”

Indira married cinema owner Shiv Kumar in the early to mid-1960s and left the film scene in the early 1970s.(Thanks to shri Mike Barnum ji).

Kesari was a comedian and villain. He acted from 1933 to 1974, in 123 films. He also sang 10 songs in 7 films. Another small time actor was Habib who acted in 209 films from 1942 to 1980. In this film the famous monkey Zippy ( famous for his role in film Insaniyat-55) also had a role to do.

Today’s song is a dance song video, shot on Heroine Indira and Hero Umesh Sharma.

“Jail Yatra”(1947) was produced and directed by Gajanan Jageerdaar for Jaageerdaar productions, Bombay. This “Social” movie had Gajanan Jageerdaar, Kamini Kaushal, Raj Kapoor, Harish, Bikram Kapoor, Badri Prasad, Sunalini Devi, Dixit, Ramlal, Hemavati, Pratima Devi , Sagar, Munawwar Khan, Rammurty, Satyanarayan, Ramlal, Shamlal etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Jail Yatra”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Ninu Majumdar and Meena Kapoor. Sajjan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ninu Majumdar.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a dance song. Gajanan Jageerdaar , the hero of the movie, most probably lip synced in Ninu Majumdar’s voice. I am less sure about the lady lip syncing in Meena Kapoor’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-O gori kahaan chali us paar (Jail Yaatra)(1947) Singers-Ninu Majumdar, Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Sajjan, MD-Ninu Majumdar

Lyrics

o gori kahaan chali us paar
o gori kahaan chali us paar
chhod ke gaanvon ki bahaar

rasiya jaaungi us paar
bulaate hain jagmag baazaar
rasiya jaaungi us paar
bulaate hain jagmag baazaar
man hamaar dole ho
man hamaar dole ho

gori rum jhum rum jhum baaje
saawan ki bauchhaar
gori rum jhum rum jhum baaje
saawan ki bauchhaar
rasiya chhoom chhananchhan baaje
rasiya chhoom chhananchhan baaje

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 17
————————————————

‘Joshila-1973’ is another movie which I remember to have watched around end of seventies. It was screened during the weekly screening of movies at our ‘colony club’ where we stayed at that time. I never got a chance to watch it again. However, its heart touching song ‘Kiska rasta dekhe ai dil ai saudaayi’ became a permanent memory associated with this movie. This also became to be the most popular and famous song from this movie. Very aptly this movie was launched on this blog with this Kishore Kumar song on 15.03.2009.

Couple of other songs from this movie like ‘Dil mein jo baaten hai aao chalo ham keh den ’ and ‘Kuchh bhi kar lo ik din tumko ’ were also good and they were frequently heard on radio. Having the typical RD touch, they were also heard frequently on radio and loudspeakers.

However, none of the songs from this movie could make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala -1973’.

All the songs of this movie were written by Sahir Ludhianvi. But at that time, I was not a fan of Sahir Saab and had not read or known much about him. And it is natural for anybody given the age at that time not to bother about other things except listening the songs.

Coming back to our ‘blog ten-year challenge’ let us go through the list of movies of which the songs were represented ten years back on 15.03.2009;

‘Shareef Badmaash-1973’
‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’
‘Joshila-1973’
‘Kashmir Ki Kali-1964’
‘Manzil-1960’
‘Dil Tera Deewaana-1962’

All the above movies except ‘Joshila-1973’ have attained ‘Yippeee’ed status (all songs covered status) on the blog.

That brings us to the today’s movie, a song from which we are going to listen …

‘Joshilaa-1973’ or ‘Joshila’ was directed by Yash Chopra for ‘Trimurti Films Pvt Ltd’. It was produced by Gulshan Rai.

It had Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Madan Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Padma Khanna, Sulochana, Iftekhar, Sudhir, Hercules, Master Satyajit, I.S. Johar, Vikas Anand, Jagdish Raj, S.N. Bannerjee, Chandu Allahabadi, Praveen Kumar, Uma Khosla, Ramlal, Shamlal, Uma Dutt and Nazeer. Rakhi and Mahendra Sandhu had a special appearance in this movie.
And Roopesh Kumar, A.K. Hangal, Sheetal, Ashu and Laxmichhaya in guest appearance.

Story of this movie was written by Gulshan Nanda and screenplay was written by C.J. Pavri and Akhtar Mirza. Diagloues of this movie were written by Akhtar-Ul-Iman. Editing of this movie was done by Pran Mehra.

This movie was passed by censor board on 26.09.1973.

This movie had total eight songs. So far five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The other two songs posted (from the three I mentioned above) are ‘Kaanp rahi main ’ and ‘Sona Rupa laayo re ’. The song being posted today is the sixth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Also, I was under the impression that the song ‘sharma nan yoon ghabra na yoon’ was already covered, but that remains to be covered.

However, for today’s post I have selected a ‘lesser heard’ song from this movie. (Even I don’t remember to have heard it before preparing of this post).

As mentioned above all songs of this movie were penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and music was composed by R.D. Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar gave their voices to the songs in this movie. As per HFGK track listing of this movie Dev Anand’s voice is credited in one song.

Lata had two solos and one duet, Asha Bhonsle three solos (including one with Dev Anand’s dialogues) and one duet, and Kishore Kumar having one solo and two duet songs.

I guess that the today’s song and one more Lata solo were excluded* from the movie and hence their video seem to be unavailable. (I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this.)
*(though HFGK doesn’t have any note about this)

Let us now listen to today’s song. After repeat listening, we may find ourselves humming the other RD gem ‘khaali haath shaam aayi hai’ 🙂 as well. (that is the magic of music or ragas (if I am not wrong 🙂 )

Missing Films of 1960s – 94
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With every episode, we are closing in on clearing all the pending and available films for representation here on our blog. Today, we bring on the 1969 film ‘Pyaar’.

The word ‘Pyaar’ is likely to be one of those which are probably the most used in film titles. I have not done the search, but yes, it would be very interesting to take out a statistics on how many films have this word in their title. That being an interesting exercise in itself, I would take this to the next level – to check how many films are titled simply ‘Pyaar’. In the first five volumes of Geet Kosh, i.e. 1931 to 1980, there have been three films which are so titled. The years are 1940, 1950 and 1969.

The 1969 ‘Pyaar’ is produced under the banner of Film Makers, Calcutta, and is directed by Prahlad Sharma. The cast of actors includes Soma Salkar, Suraj, Sangeeta, Prem, Kavita, Biren, Shekhar, Alka, Jahar Rai, Baby Samli Rai, and Pandit Natwar etc. Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, all of them from the pen of Prahlad Sharma (the director himself). Music is from the mind of V Balsara.

This particular song is a solo sung by Rafi Sb. The hero is trying impress upon his heart throb, not to walk away alone, but to be together. In the process, he tells her about the difficulties trying the negotiate the life’s passages alone.

With this post, we have now introduced 94 films that were earlier not represented on the blog. A few more films are yet waiting to be posted. 🙂

 

Song – Akad Ke Kahaan Chale Meri Jaan  (Pyaar) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Prahlad Sharma, MD – V Balsara

Lyrics

akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan

bada lamba jeevan ka safar
nahin manzil ki tumhen khabar
ghiregi toofaan mein kashti
milegi tumko nahin dagar
samjhi
hamen tum le lo apne saath
kinaare se lag jaaoge
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan

zara aane do mast bahaar
aah haa
khiloge kaliyon se dildaar
aah haa
gulabi hothon ka pee zehar
marenge bhanwre roz hazaar
oh ho ho ho
hiran si aankhon mein le nasha
hamen madhosh banaaoge
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna . . . . gumaan

aji sun lo mere hamdam
nahin ye nakhron ka mausam
zamaane se hum do pyaase
badi hai donon or jalan
haaye
hamaare pehlu mein aao
yakeen hai pyaas bujhaaoge
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan

अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान

बड़ा लंबा जीवन का सफर
नहीं मंज़िल की तुम्हें खबर
घिरेगी तूफाँ में कश्ती
मिलेगी तुमको नहीं डगर
समझी
हमें तुम ले लो अपने साथ
किनारे से लग जाओगे
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान

ज़रा आने दो मस्त बहार
आ हा
खिलोगे कलियों से दिलदार
आह हा
गुलाबी होठों का पी ज़हर
मरेंगे भँवरे रोज़ हज़ार
ओ हो हो हो
हिरण सी आँखों में ले नशा
हमें मदहोश बनाओगे
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ गुमान

अजी सुन लो मेरे हमदम
नहीं ये नखरों का मौसम
जमाने से हम दो प्यासे
बड़ी हैं दोनों ओर जलन
हाए
हमारे पहलू में आओ
यकीं है प्यास बुझाओगे
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 15
————————————————

12th March, ten years ago. Six songs posted, and six films represented that day.  The films are ‘President’ (1937), ‘Paarasmani’ (1963), ‘Mera Gaaon Mera Desh’ (1971), ‘Elaan’ (1971), ‘Anjaana’ (1969), and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’ (1971). On that day, the 1971 film ‘Elaan’ made its debut on our blog with the song “Aap Ki Rai Mere Baare Mein”.

Of the six films appearing that day, four have already been yippeee’d.  Given the set of popular and familiar songs, the films ‘Paarasmani’, ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’ and ‘Anjaana’ have all their songs posted. ‘President’ – the 1937 film featuring KL Saigal and Kanan Devi, still has some songs pending. However today, I pick up the other pending film from that date – ‘Elaan’ of 1971.

The film has 5 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Music is by Shankar Jaikishan.  Two of the songs are already showcased here. The interesting thing about this film is that out of the five songs, one is a solo by Lata ji, one is a solo by Asha ji, and the remaining three feature Sharda as the singer. Two of these three are solos, and one is a duet with Rafi Sb.  This choice of singers underscores the then prevailing rumors about Shankar’s fancy for Sharda, and Jaikishan’s displeasure about this state of affairs.

The duet song, and the song by Lata ji are already posted. Today I bring on board the song by Asha Bhosle. Lyrics for this song are written by Farooque Kaiser. The song is presented as a cabaret dance by Rekha. The setting seems to be the villain’s den. The audience for this performance are Vinod Mehra, sporting a French beard in an effort to disguise his identity, Madan Puri playing the role of the gangster boss, and Jankidas as a senior lieutenant of the boss. A few more junior henchmen are spread out around the room.

The provocative cabaret is presented by Rekha. Back then in 1971, this was just her third film that she was appearing in. Her first film ‘Anjaana Safar’, made ready for release in 1969, ran into some problems with the Censors, and its actual release was delayed by a decade. It was released in 1979 with a change in title – ‘Do Shikaari’. Rekha played the leading lady opposite to Biswajit. Then in 1970 came the film ‘Saawan Bhadon’, opposite to Navin Nischol, which is considered as her debut film. And them in 1971, she appears in this film opposite to Vinod Mehra.

The performance, the dress up – all is very enticing and provocative. Rekha appears to be attempting to emulate Helen as she attempts to entice Vinod Mehra, who is apparently a target of something sinister. The gangster boss is seen adding some drug to the drink for Vinod Mehra. And at the end of the song, we see Vinod falling down unconscious.

The song itself is less familiar, however not unheard. Enjoy the song, and Rekha’s performance – every inch a temptress.

Song – Aaj Tumhaare Kaan Mein Keh Doon Mere Dil Mein Kya Hai  (Elaan) (1971) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Farooque Kaiser, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon
mere dil mein kya hai

aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon
mere dil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega

khud mein magan ho
dhadke mera mann
ab to milan ho
jaan sakey na mere dilbar
is paayal mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega

samajh gaye na
oy hoye hoye hoye

kaun bhala hai

aankhon pe teri parda pada hai
kaun bhala hai

aankhon pe teri parda pada hai
hanste hanste maar jo daale
us qaatil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na

ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega

“Aanchal Ke Phool”(1968) is released 50 years ago and that makes it a recent movie by the standards of this blog. 🙂 Nevertheless, little is known about this movie because it was a B grade movie and it failed to do well at the box office.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past and that was in 2011. Our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh provided details about this movie. Here is what he had to say about this movie :-

It was a MRS Film production, directed by Karunesh Thakur, with music from Ved Sethi.

Ved Sethi is a Punjabi Music Director and the above film seems to be the only film in Hindi for which he gave music.There are only 4 songs in the movie.

The cast consisted of Sajjan and Kamini Kaushal as the lead pair,supported by Jeevan, Chand Usmani, Sunder, Mohan Choti,Namrata, Jayant, Ulhas, Jagdish Raj etc.

The story is Shankar(Sajjan) is a Mill worker in Bombay and stays with his 5 sons and a daughter. When he gets his 7th child, his childless neighbours Sunderlal(Sunder) and Ranu(Chand Usmani) volunteer to adopt the new born, but Shanker and Maya(K.K.) refuse. The expenses of the delivery are so much that when his only daughter Radha(Baby Poonam) is injured in her leg, he has to go to the charitable hospital. When he learns that her leg has to be amputed ,he is devastated and abandones the daughter and tells his wife that Radha has died.

The entire story is a boring,lengthy tear jerker which tries to emphasise that children are God’s gifts etc…..

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Krishna Kalle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ved Sethi.

I am unable to identify the lady who lip syncs on this “aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” genre of song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.


Song-More man mein hai kaisi chubhan haay raam kaa se kahoon(Aanchal Ke Phool)(1968) Singer-Krishna Kalle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Ved Sethi

Lyrics

more man mein hai kaisi chubhan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
more man mein hai kaisi chubhan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
mora peera se toote badan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
more man mein hai kaisi chubhan
haaye raam ka se kahoon

halke halke pawan jhakore
jab jab lipte tan se more
kaahe nainan mein sharmaa ke hanse kajra main jaanoon na
more nas nas mein jaage agan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
more man me hai kaisi chubhan
haaye raam ka se kahoon

kaahe chunri sar se dhalke
kaahe mori paayal chhanke
kaahe palkan mein laaj basi bairi
itna bhi jaane na aa
piya julmi se laage nayan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
more man mein hai kaisi chubhan
haye raam ka se kahoon

sapnon mein baarat bhi dekhi
pi sang pahli raat bhi dekhi
sapnon mein baarat bhi dekhi
pi sang pahli raat bhi dekhi
kab sach honge sapne mere
kaise kah doon main jaanoon na aa
saji sapnon ki main hoon dulhan
haye ram ka se kahoon
more man me hai kaisi chubhan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
mora peera se toote badan
haaye raam ka se kahoon
more man mein hai kaisi chubhan
haaye raam
ka se kahoon

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 14
————————————————

‘Bobby’ created almost a storm in 1973. This drama of puppy love, completely fresh faces (almost, Rishi Kapoor had already made his mark in the ‘child RK’ role in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970)), and a love story aimed at an age bracket lower than college going young people – the lovers in this film are just transitioning from high school to college. In the early 1970s, the influence of the hippie movement and free love ideas from the west into the Indian society was still a compelling influence. And the provocative presentation, as is the wont of RK style, ensured that young people of all ages went to see this film multiple times in the theaters.

The story of RK – from ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) to ‘Bobby’ (1973) is quite well known. ‘Mera Naam Joker’ was designed and produced by RK as his magum opus. He put his everything into that film, both the creativity and the finances – and lost out on the gamble at the box office. Many reasons can be analyzed as to why that happened. ‘Mera Naam Joker’ is a remarkable film, but then maybe RK went overboard in certain aspects. With the huge success of ‘Sangam’ (1964) behind him he gambled that the length of the film won’t be a deterrent to the audience. He called the wrong numbers on the dice. The film was a financial disaster for RK, in its first run. It broke him.

But his resilience to bounce back played out well. After a gap of three years, he came up with ‘Bobby’, and he had the audiences lapping it up, again and again. Some journalist even wrote that RK has extracted his revenge on the system, as well as the audiences, and got compensated many times over for the disaster of ‘Mera Naam Joker’.

‘Bobby’ was also a significant departure for RK banner in another way. The Shankar-Jaikishan duo of music directors had been rendered solo, by the untimely departure of Jaikishan in 1970. RK took a glaring decision to switch music directors, bringing to close an association that had lasted for more than two decades. Many industry observers commented that this was expected. Many others in the industry were shocked by this move. A move that essentially signaled the downturn of Shankar as an MD. He doggedly tried to keep the SJ banner alive but the zest and the verve was gone, forever. The numbers speak for themselves – in 1971, seventeen films were released with music by SJ. Of course, presumably, a fair share of the work on this set of seventeen would have been done while Jaikishan was still alive. The rest of the decade of 1970s tells a grim story. 1972 – 8 films; 1973 – 7 films; 1974 – 4 films; 1975 – 5 films; 1976 – none; 1977 – 2; 1978 – 1; 1979 – 2; 1980 -1. The magic sun of SJ was slowly fading away.

RK switched to Laxmi-Pyaare. From RK’s perspective, this was a correct strategic move. And the results are for everyone to see. Of course, no one can discount the uncanny ability of RK to inspire creation of absolutely wonderful music for his films. And yes, Laxmi-Pyaare delivered to his expectations. The songs of ‘Bobby’ were super hits in their time, and they continue to be in popular demand even now after almost four decades. I am sure I do not need to present the song list to make this point. 🙂

With ‘Bobby’, RK and Laxmi-Pyaare introduced a new and a very different sound to the world of Hindi film music. The name – Narendra Chanchal. A singer with a very expressive, a very deep baritone – a voice with a phenomenal range that rivaled even Mahendra Kapoor in rendering the higher octaves. It is quoted that RK had heard him sing at some religious function. He followed up with some more research, and then decided to bring in this voice for a Sufi-like song in the film.

I remember that the promotion and the publicity presentations for this film was quite low key. The film was introduced without much fanfare. Yes, the choice of moving from SJ to LP did become talk of the town, but nothing much more than that. And this new singer – Chanchal, got introduced to the public, just as is. Working with the expected fare of Lata, Shailendra Singh, Asha and Manna Da, the audiences would be taken by surprise as Chancal would appear in person on the screen, to present this song.

And the song was an immediate hit. Over the years, it has gained almost a cult status. In reasonable memory, this probably was the first Sufi-type song presented in such traditional Sufi garb, in a Hindi film. No, I am not trying to discount all the bhajans and songs of religious expression that came before this. But surely, this song introduced a completely new sound in the Hindi film music space. The genre – picking on the original writings of Bulle Shah, the famous Sufi poet from Punjab. And the voice – no, not choosing Rafi or Manna Dey to render this. Chanchal – a new voice, a new full throated sound, that you had to slightly reduce the volume on the radio or gramophone, as his singing came on.

RK’s uncanny ability to present a song on the screen in a manner that the emotions of the players on screen will grab the emotions in the audience’s mind and heart, and pull the strings, almost viciously. The two young lovers are at a precipice of near break-up. Just recently into their romance, a jarring note of an unexplained misunderstanding tears them apart, oh so cruelly. The young man follows the lady, as she joins a school trip to get away from him. He tries to approach her; she is cold and nonchalant, and the ever chivalrous bystanders give a good beating to the young man. The lady is still silent. And so is the young man, just looking at her imploringly, asking for a chance to explain. The conversation is not entertained. The hearts are pining and wreathing with tears. But the stand-off remains. Explanations are not allowed. The silent gazes of pain, the eyes telling beseeching stories of pleadings. But no, the words are not permitted.

And then, this deep throated sound from a singer sitting in a group of porters, rises to block out and mask all the other sounds in the camp. A voice that delivers the message, the words that the young man is trying to articulate, but is not able to. Those words are compellingly brought out in this loud rustic voice of a folk singer, singing by the campfire, playing on a daff (‘डफ’) in his hand. The memories go back to ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). There also, the protagonist plays the daff, when an important message, and the right words are to be delivered.

Over the years, Chanchal did sing, maybe a dozen, or maybe a score more songs in Hindi films. And then he quietly exited and went back to his forte – the world of popular religious bhajans. His success in that field is simply phenomenal, and for everyone to see. Just that he could not jell well with the systems of the tinsel town Mayanagri.
[Author’s Note: After little more research on the internet, we find that the total number of songs sung by Narendra Chancal in Hindi films is about 35.  Nahm ji has pointed out in comments another wonderful solo – “Kabhi Gham Se Dil Lagaaya” from film ‘Daaku’ (1975). Other superb solos by him are:
“Meri Zindagi Tumhare Pyaar Pe Kurbaan” – from ‘Jeevan Sangram’ (1974)
“Loot Liya Sansaar” – from ‘Fauji’ (1976)
“Yaar Di Chaukhat Kaaba Kaashi” – from ‘Ram Bharose’ (1977)
“Do Ghut Pila De Saaqiya” – from ‘Kaala Suraj’ (1986)
“Tut Gayi Je Yaari” – from ‘Ramkali’ (1986)
The other songs are duets, group songs, and of course religious bhajans.]

Ten years back, this day, the output on the blog was nothing short of phenomenal. On 10th March, 2009, a total of 12 songs were posted. Atul ji was quite in the pink, and on the roll, during those initial weeks and months of this blog. 12 songs mean that 12 films got represented that day. And ‘Bobby’ made its debut on that day, with the song – “Main Shaayar To Nahin”.

Over the past decade, nine of those films have been yippeee’d, and three remain. As I checked the list, I was somberly surprised that a film like ‘Bobby’, with one superlative song after another, had not yet been yippeee’d here. And mind you, the songs pending are not lightweights. Each one of them is a popular super hit, all by itself.

Quick round up review of credits – the words of this song are adapted and redrafted by Rajkavi Inderjeet Singh Tulsi, based on an original song by Bulle Shah. The music – Laxmi-Pyaare. Singing voice – Narendra Chanchal. On screen, the singer himself is performing the song, carrying the messages between the two young lovers, Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia, who are not communicating, except through the eyes. And the words of this song so powerfully express the unsaid emotions between them.

If you have ever been in love, this song is for you. And yes, if you have ever been in love, this film is for you.

Blog Day : 3887 Post No. : 14917

Today’s song is from film Gauri-1943. It was a film made by Ranjit Movietone. The Lyrics, Story and Screenplay as well as the Direction was by Kidar Sharma. The cast of the film was Prithviraj Kapoor, Shamim, Monica Desai, Rajkumari Shukla, Brijmala, Amarnath etc etc.

The making of film Gauri-1943 had a big story behind it. This is described in great details by Kidar Sharma himself, in his autobiography ” The one and Lonely Kidar Sharma”. We will,however, discuss this in an abridged version here.

Kidar Sharma left New Theatres, Calcutta and shifted to Bombay, for a new chapter in his life and career. His close friend from Calcutta, Prithviraj Kapoor, who was in Bombay earlier, had arranged for his meeting with Ranjit’s chief Chandulal Shah. Even before Sharma reached Bombay, Shah had known about him and had become his fan.He saw film ” Chitralekha “-41, made and directed by Kidar Sharma, several times,in his own Theatre-Opera House in Bombay, mostly with his consort Goharbai Mamajiwala. He was very much impressed with Sharma ji’s work. Shah and Goharbai both, were actually eager to employ Kidar Sharma. Therefore, without any hitch, he was hired at a very lucrative salary of Rs. 3000/- pm and an advance of Rs. 5000/- to bring his family from Calcutta.

Kidar joined Ranjit on 3rd October 1941. His first film here was ‘ Armaan’-42. During this film, he became very friendly with actor Motilal, whom Sharma regarded as a very good artiste. During his next film, ‘Vish kanya’, Kidar took Raj Kapoor as his third assistant. His close friend Prithviraj was worried about the future of Raj, hence Sharma took him under his wings so that he will learn the making of films in all aspects. In effect Raj was only a Clapper Boy here, but he was a keen observer of everything. He was a little childish still. In one of the outdoor shootings of the film, Kidar Sharma got so much irritated with Raj Kapoor’s irresponsible behaviour that in anger, he slapped Raj kapoor on the sets, in front of all the staff. Later Sharma felt bad about the incident and decided that one day, when he would become a Producer, he would make Raj Kapoor his Hero in that film (Neelkamal-47…earlier started as ‘ Bechara Bhagwan ‘ as its Title). More about this film some other time.

In 1943, Sharma wrote a story “Gauri”- set in Calcutta and woven around the Durga Pooja in Bengal. It was a very touching human story and very emotional too. During the story session, both Chandulal Shah and Goharbai could not control their emotions and wept openly. Shah liked the story so much that he volunteered to sent a team to Calcutta for shooting during the Pooja Festival days.

Sharma insisted that the Hero’s role of Khumar- the Idol Maker be done only by his friend Prithviraj kapoor. His name was of course agreed upon. However, Goharbai queried as to who Sharma had in his mind to do the sensitive Heroine’s role. Sharma ji replied that he needed someone who looked fresh and innocent. He asked for some time. Actually he had thought of Monica Desai- the younger sister of famous actress Leela Desai. Monica worked as a school teacher in Calcutta. She had done a small role in his film ‘ Chitralekha’-41. In those days Sharma was impressed with her and had assured her that when he gets stabilised as a Director and has a suitable script, he will give Heroine’s role to Monica.

Next day, Sharma ji told Chandulal Shah about her selection. Chandulal had confidence in his judgement. The big hearted Shah gave Rs. 5000/- to Sharma to send to Monica for coming to Bombay comfortably in First Class. Kidar Sharma sent the money to her and asked her to travel only by First class to Bombay, to get down at Dadar, keep the luggage in Cloak room and freshen up in the waiting room. She was asked to wear a silk saree also. Sharma asked her if she understood all instructions and she confirmed. She was to visit Ranjit Studios at 2.30pm, when Sharma would introduce her to Sethji.

On the afternoon of her arrival day, the Shah couple and others waited anxiously for Monica’s arrival. In the afternoon, Monica arrived at the gates of the studio looking tired and untidy, along with all her luggage. Seeing her Chandulal became nervous, but asked Sharma ji to arrange for her stay and food etc. Chandulal Shah was not only upset with Monica’s looks but also annoyed. Still without commenting, he left the studio immediately with Goharbai. Sharma as well as Prithviraj felt humiliated with the foolish Monica who came to the studio, not following Sharma’s instructions. This she did to save some money, but put everyone in an awkward situation. Anyway, Sharma made her staying etc arrangements.

Next day, Chandulal called him to his office and said that he will continue making film Gauri, as promised, but he will not participate in any shootings, recordings or other matters till the film is completed. He will however, see the finished movie before it goes to Censors. It was too obvious that both the Shahs were upset about the ordinary looking and childish, immature Monica as Heroine.

Kidar Sharma gulped all this quietly and started work on the film quickly. The team went to Calcutta also and came back. When the film was completed, Sharma invited Chandulal and Goharbai to see it. Actually whenever such a preview was done all other Directors of Ranjit also attended it, but this time there were only the two of them-Chandulal and Goharbai. The entire team of the film was also present. Sharma had known that when Chandulal did not like the film, he usually abused loudly and sometimes even threw his chappals at the screen. With bated breath, Sharma showed him the film Gauri and waited for his reactions, expecting fireworks. Instead, Chandulal and Goharbai left the room and went to their office. Everyone,including Sharma was sure that Sharma has to leave the company now.

With great courage, Sharma went to their office to know their opinions. To his great surprise, Chandulal dug into his pocket and removed whatever money was there and gifted it to Sharma. He said,” this is my gift to you for making a sublime movie.” Gohar too appreciated heartily. Both of them were spellbound with Monica’s performance. Shah offered Monica a 3 year contract, furnished house and a new car with a driver etc. Shah also increased Sharma’s salary to Rs.5500/pm.
Thus Monica Desai’s first film was a great success. ” Durga” was a winner. Kidar Sharma was a winner.

One of the cast in the film was Rajkumari Shukla. At that period of time, there were 3 Rajkumaris working in Hindi films. One and the most famous was Rajkumari Dubey-Banareswali. The second was Rajkumari-Calcuttewali. Her real name was Pullobai. And the third was this Rajkumari Shukla. She was known as the ‘ mother of the Indian screen’.

Rajkumari Shukla was born in Benares in 1903. She joined films to earn her livelihood. She was married but got bad treatment from her in laws. After the death of her husband, her torture incresed. One Nana Baba, her neighbour was kind enough to help her and get her a job in Madon Theatres, where he was working. Rajkumari had no issues or parents. She treated Nana Baba as her father. She entered films with Uljhan-42. She started getting mother roles and she excelled in that. She worked only upto Nai Maa-46. But she acted in Bangla and Gujarati films too.

In all she did more than 60 films. Hindi films were 31 only. Some of the more known films that she did were Ek raat-42, Vakil sahib-43, School master-43, Sanjog-43, Paraya Dhan-43, Panghat-43, Namaste-43, Najma-43, Gauri-43, Aage kadam-43, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Dr,Kumar-44, Sharbati aankhen-54, Hamara sansar-45, Gaon ki gori-45 and nai maa-46. She sang only 1 song in film Panghat-43.

Today’s song is sung by singer actress Shamim. She was variously credited as Shamim, Shameem, Miss Shamim, Shamim Akhtar. She was born in Lahore and died in Lahore, where she migrated after Partition. Her biodata was given on 17-1-2019 in a post on film ‘Return of Toofan Mail’-42.

Lyrics

Majboor hain is dil se ae

Majboor hai is dil se

ye kaisi pilaayi hai
jaaye hai jidhar dilbar

jaaye hai jidhar dilbar
haay dilbar

duniya se niraala hai
jaanaan tera deewaana

haay kaise bache hasrat
haay hasrat
har aankh mein haaye hai
haay kaise bache hasrat
haay hasrat

khil jaaye kali dil ki
khil jaaye kali dil ki
halka sa tabassum tera
gulzaar khilaaye hai
halka sa tabassum tera
gulzaar khilaaye hai
tum saamne baithho ke main
jee bhar ke tumhen dekhoon
jee bhar ke tumhen dekhoon
tum jyon hi huye ojhal
haay ojhal
jhat aankh bhar aaye hai
tum jyon hi huye ojhal
haay ojhal
jhat aankh bhar aaye hai
majboor hai is dil se
is dil se
ye kaisi pilaai hai

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 13
————————————————

When the blog’s train reached 9th March of 2009, ten years ago, one of the songs posted that day was from the 1980 film ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’.  Till that point, it was the third song posted for this film. Today, after a gap of 10 years, the fourth song of this film finds its place here.  Wow, ten years it took – and none of us thought of looking at this film again during these years.

The film has 6 songs in all. As I checked out the remaining three songs, and I played this one, I simply could not go ahead to listen to the other two remaining. I just continued to play this one over and over again. What a lovely creation this one – a brief description of the season of rains – ‘saawan’. One of thos songs which one is surprised that it has been overlooked .

The words are from the pen of Gulzar. As soon as one hears the line “Kaanch Ki Boonden Barsen Jaise” – it is Gulzar’s name that comes to mind, as the writer of this song. And the music by Khayyaam Sb – simply superb and marvelously simple. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. The three contributions have come together so beautifully to create this lovely song of rain.

‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’ is produced under the banner of Konark Combine International and is directed by Ismail Shroff.  The film boasts about an all star cast that includes Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Padmini Kolhapure, Sushant Ray, Shriram Lagoo, Deven Verma, Dr. Maya Alagh, AK Hangal, Jalal Agha, Shashi Kiran, Urmila Bhatt, Gayatri, Gauri Khurana, Preeti Ganguly, Deena Pathak, Leela Mishra, Viju Khote, Madhu Malhotra, Lalita Kumari, Murad, Dharamveer, Moolchand, Ram Avtar, Manmauji, Sundar Taneja, Kishore, and Jameel.

A lovely ‘saawan’ song – and it is time it came on board. 🙂

 

Song – Barse Fuhaar, Barse Fuhaar, Kaanch Ki Boonden Barsen Jaise  (Thodi Si Bewafai) (1980) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Khayyaam

barse phuhaar
barse phuhaar
kaanch ki boonden barsen jaise
barse phuhaar

heeron ke haar pehne phuhaar

resham ke taar le ke bahaar
jhoole re
koi agar jo aaye nazar
to kehna re kehna re kehna
barse phuhaar
barse phuhaar
kaanch ki boonden barsen jaise
barse phuhaar
barse phuhaar

baaji hai paaj thandi hawaa je
saawan ki
baaji hai paaj thandi hawaa je
saawan ki
agni laga ke gili ghata je
saawan ki
koi agar jo aaye nazar
to kehna re kehna re kehna
barse phuhaar
barse phuhaar
kaanch ki boonden barsen jaise
barse phuhaar
barse phuhaar

meetha sa shor dil se wo chor
aata hai
meetha sa shor dil se wo chor
aata hai
kehte hain log saawan mein mor
aata hai
koi agar jo aaye nazar
to kehna re kehna re kehna
barse phuhaar
barse phuhaar
kaanch ki boonden barsen jaise
barse phuhaar
