Remembrance day of Jaikishan :
———————————–
Today i.e. 12th September, 2020 is 49th death anniversary of Jaikishan, a half of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have just now read the detailed Wikipedia Page of Shankar-Jaikishan, so will reproduce some para’s which are worthy of mention in terms of Jaikishan’s death anniversary.

“Shankar Jaikishan enjoyed an unrivalled position in the Hindi film industry. During their heyday and even toward the later part of their career, they were the highest paid music directors in the industry. Barring stray exceptions, they were paid more than the leading actors and the promotional material of their films would give them more prominence than anyone else.”

“What can I say… my musical partner in life has gone, what is left of me to say anything more, I had never thought that at such an early age he would leave us all and go; Anyway his good qualities of maintaining goodwill, giving love and receiving love were innate in him and I too don’t have them in me. He used to regularly remind me of my innate quality of being in a boisterous mood all the time and always abrasive with some one or the other and so on and so forthwith…….”
(Shankar on Jaikishan’s death in an interview with AmeenSayani.)

The page also has this to say about Shankar Jaikishan, vis-à-vis different singers :

“Shankar Jaikishan combo worked above all of with Mohd Rafi and secondly Mukesh, and produced numbers of hits and unmatchable gems. Mohd Rafi was their favourite singer despite having good reputation with other playback singers of its time.”

I read somewhere else, that the mukhda of the song “Ye mera prempatra padh kar” from ‘Sangam’ was actually taken from the letter written by Jaikishan to his than fiancée “Priya”. So this could be the instance where Jaikishan unwittingly revealed that he is the composer of the block-buster song. This caused a rift between the two as Jaikishan broke the unwritten agreement between them, of not revealing which of them is the creator of any particular song. Here, Rafi Sahab is said to have intervened and solved the issue between Shankar and Jaikishan, and also later on between Lata Mangeshkar and Shankar in the mid 70’s.

But there is no doubt of the truth here when it is said that “Shankar-Jaikishan, along with other artists, composed “everlasting” and “immortal melodies” in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.[2] Their best work was noted for being “raga-based and having both lilt and sonority”.

All hindi film music fans agree that they changed the face of hindi film music with “Barsaat” and the success of the film and its music played a big role in this change.

The music I think was versatile and inspiring to new music directors. Theirs was a first of its kind duo, as far as I know who combined their talents and acumen with two lyrcists and made a fearsome foursome. They can also be called fabulous and formidable. They had to be, to be on top of the game for two decades. Shankar-Jaikishan can also be credited for starting the trend of version songs, one male and one female version. Contemporaries and seniors like Naushad and S.D.Burman rarely did it. Naushad in “Mere Mehboob” and S. D. Burman in “Sharmilee” and “Tere Ghar Ke saamne”. But in the later instance, it was both male solos.

I am actually trying to wrap up the long running series on Mohammad Rafi songs, so trying not to look for a Rafi Sahab song for posting on this occasion. But as luck would have it, I found this popular song from ‘Pyaar hi Pyaar’(1969). Moreover this song has a stamp of Shankar-Jaikishan signature style in the orchestration of the music. This is an Asha-Rafi duet, with the fast pace and beat. This is the manifestation of Asha Bhonsle making inroads in the Shankar Jaikishan cap, which started with “Teesri Kasam”. Shankar-Jaikishan were known for Lata only music scores through 50’s and not just for R.K. films. I think the exceptions to this were very rare and few, where Asha, Geeta Dutt or Shamshad Begum got to sing Shankar Jaikishan compositions. Suman Kalyanpur was one such alternative which Shankar Jaikishan tried, in mid- 60’s for duets with Rafi sahab.

I have also tried to find if Shankar Jaikishan ever re-used their own tune to compose songs, but could not find any such songs. Their music was a huge commercial success, so no one else could try and copy their songs.

The song I am presenting in a party song, where Vijayanthi Mala is trying to make Dharmendra jealous, flaunting a dance partner. There are other popular Rafi solos in the film, but this would be the most popular, with the title song of the film ’dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyar hi pyar beshumaar’.

S. Mohinder (8/09/1925-6/9/2020) : A tribute
————————————————–

Just as I was preparing this post for the birth anniversaries of both S. Mohinder and Asha Bhosle, comes the news demise of S. Mohinder. As I don’t know much about the music director, I was looking up on Google for basic information if it is available. I found the sad news and this news item.
S. Mohinder, among the last of the musicians of the 40’s, was born in Punjab on 8th September, 1925. The end has come just two days before he was to turn 95.

K. S. Shenoy Sir had made this comment to my recent post :

Nahm Ji, not heard this one before. Nice rendering by Rafi Ji.
At the beginning when I read that the post is about a children’s song, two songs immediately flashed in my mind
(Iconic) ‘Nanhe Munne….’
And ‘O mere pyarozameenke taro…’. Such beautiful song by Rafi Ji ,Asha&Sudha. Though not a sad tune, in the context of the movie it brings tears to my eyes.

He also gave the link for this song from the film ‘Zameen Ke Taare” (1960), which I found to be very sweet and poignant. Not just the mukhda only which Rafi sahab is singing, but the stanzas by two kids for whom Asha Bhonsle and Sudha Malhotra are singing. This was an unknown song and I heard it for the first time that day. It felt a familiar and dear song right from the first hearing. It is a lorry song also with the lorry driver, who is I think ‘Anwar Hussain’, the brother of Nargis. But his filmography everywhere has missed this movie,”Zameen ke Taare”, where he is getting to sing such a melodious song. The songs are composed by S. Mohinder and lyricist of this song is Pandit Indra.

Since I am doing anniversary posts regularly whenever possible, I decided to write a post for this children’s song for 8th September is the birth date of both S. Mohinder and Asha Bhonsle.
But that 95th birthday was not destined to be. So as a tribute to S. Mohinder I am reproducing a few lines from the famous song by the veteran composer of melodious songs :

mere liye sahar bhi aayi hai raat ban kar
niklaa meraa janaazaa meri baraat ban kar
achchhaa huaa jo tumne dekhaa na ye nazaaraa
haafiz khudaa tumhaaraa
guzraa huaa zamaanaa
aataa nahin dubaaraa
haafiz khudaa tumhaaraa
haafiz khudaa tumhaaraa

The famous song actually starts with this sha’ir byTanvir Naqvi :

Bhool jaana meri wafaaon ko
Bakhsh denaa meri khataaon ko…..

May the departed soul, rest in eternal, heavenly peace.


Song-O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron (Zameen Ke Taare)(1960) Singers-Rafi, Sudha Malhotra, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Pt Indra, MD-S Mohinder
Sudha Malhotra + Asha Bhonsle

Remembrance day of Mukri :

Mukri also spelled as Muqri was an Indian film actor, who worked as a comedian in Hindi films. Born as Muhammad Umar Mukri in Alibagh, in Kokani Muslim Family, he started his film career with the film Pratima along with noted film actor Dilip Kumar in 1945. Born of 5th January 1922, he left for heavenly abode on 4th September’2000 at the age of 72 years.

Mukri was seen in many films in character roles and comic role. One movie which comes to mind in ‘Ram aur Shyam”. Here also he featured with Dilip Kumar as his friend.

Today is the 20th death anniversary, so as a tribute, I have found a wonderful comic song picturized on Mukri and Mehmood. The film is ‘Madhavi’(1969), with Laxmikant –Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi as music director and lyricist. The movie had very good songs, I hear. This is the only Rafi song picturized on Mukri which remained to be posted, going by the information is Rafi sahab’s excel sheet. I expect, Mukri may not be as prolific as Mehmood, Johhny Walker or Agha. So there are most likely fewer songs where he actually sings. In this song Manna De is giving playback for Mehmood and Rafi Sahab is singing for Mukri. Now, in the absence of song video, how can I be certain of this ? I have searched on youtube, though the movie “Madhavi” is available, video of only one song is there. All other songs, only audio is available, including the song being posted. Actually, on closer inspection, there are voices of both Mehmood and Mukri are there is the song along with the singers. This is a comic song in real terms, maybe a rip-off on “Padosan” songs.

It was my husband who confirmed the playback for Mehmood and Mukri. As I was noting the lyrics this evening, he asked from where I had found this song from ‘Madhavi”. This is not a known song for me, but may husband knows the songs of this film very well.

The name did ring a bell that I had contributed the lyrics of Lata solo of the two songs posted :

parda hata de mukhda dikha de
saanjh sawere adharon pe mere

My husband also helpfully given the story outline of this costume drama film of Kings, Princes and Princesses. Sanjay Khan is a prince and Deepa, in title role of Madhavi, is a princess. Mehmood and Mukri are all part of the Sanjay Khan’s entourage. This songs is performed on stage. Pran is the Senapati of Sanjay Khan, and he has this dialogue as his ‘takiya kalaam” :

“Shaadi karungaa to sirf madhavi se, warna maut se !”

Remembering Rishi Kapoor on his 68th Birth Anniversary :

A journey started on 4th September, 1952. Rishi Kapoor’s life journey through his histrionics in tinsel town, starting with his father’s epic “Mera naam joker”, to the chocolate boy in ‘Bobby’ to the authentic Majnoo in “Laila Majnu” to the slick tycoon in “ Yeh Wada raha”, via the semi-villain in ‘Hum kisi se kam nahi”, with a heart of gold, no less. The hapless husband of ‘‘Damini” , the sacrificing lover boy of ‘Chaandni”, mark the fulfilling journey and career of a shining star with the a extra twinkle in the eyes. The nick name Chintu Kapoor suited him. And great things do come in small packages, or so I have heard.

Rishi Kapoor has more than justified the Kapoor khandaan’s legacy, with a kaleidoscope of films which people want to see again and again , just for his expressions and acting. I have just now seen the song .

This is one song I keep forgetting to mention while talking about RDB’s songs. In the song, though Rishi Kapoor is sitting in the restaurant and watching the song, it is clear who is emoting the best effect of the feel of the song. Clearly he was among the best actors of 70’s and 80’s heroes. May be Rajesh Khanna and Sanjeev Kumar were better than him, not counting Amitabh bachchan here.

Rishi Kapoor lost the battle to cancer on 30th April 2020, while the entire world was reeling under the ‘pandamic’. I could not pay a proper tribute to him at that time, so I am trying to do it now.

The pandemic’s lasting after affects are emerging like the rippling of the volcano. We all need to deal with these in a calm and collected manner, and keep faith that the things will improve in near and distant future.

Here is a small ghazal, for motivation:

– Kabhi maayoos mat honaa –

Main maantaa hoon waba’a ke din hain
Magar yeh din bhi khudaa ke din hain

Dilon se maayoosiyaan nikaalo
Zara sa aage shifa’a ke din hain

Guzar gayi umr ghaflaton mein
Yahi to rab se wafaa ke din hain

———-

Waba’a – widespread illness
Shifa’a – recovery from illness
Ghaflat – carelessness

Coming to the song, it is from the film “Deewaana”(1992). Singer is Kumar Sanu of this lengthy, long mukhdaa and long stanza’s song. Sameer is the lyricist and Nadeem-Shrawan are the music directors.

The following two songs from this film were posted way back in March 2009:
Paayaliyaa ho ho ho ho
Aisi deewaanagi

Someone made this comment in 2020 to this 28 year old song, on youtube :

कल के मधुर संगीत ,
आज के भंगार संगीत
जमीन आसमान का फर्क

Can’t disagree here, as the song is really “madhur”. This was also a personal favourite in 1992, though I might have seen this film on cable TV. The late Divya Bharti is the heroine with Rishi Kapoor, with Shah Rukh khan playing a third in a negative role, this character is not with a heart of gold 🙂 .

Rishi Kapoor is singing this song on stage with a bevy of dancers(One too many), my memory did not recall the extra dancers on stage. At least they are not in garish colour, so everyone is in heavenly sparkling white.

And may the departed souls rest in heavenly peace.

Sochenge tumhe pyar karen ke nahin – Deewana(1992)

Blog Day :

4430 Post No. : 15859 Movie Count :

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, one halfof the music director Laxmikant-Pyarelal was born on 03/09/1940. So that makes this 80th Birthday of the one of the most proficient, successful and talented musicians of the golden era of hindi film music. It is a well-known fact that both Laxmikant and Pyarelaljistarted their career as players of music instruments in the song recordings. If I am not mistaken, Pyarelalji, was a violinist.

‘Most proficient’ in the film industry’s history is the correct tag for Laxmikant-Pyarelal as they are the composers with the highest no. of songs composed which stands at 2901, in the blog’s stats page.

Laxmikant Pyarelal started as music directors in 1963, they hit the jackpot with Dost (1964). What followed is history, with awards, accolades and they never looked back. They are on record as loyalists of Rafi Sahab till his lifetime, who also sang maximum no of songs for them.

The achievements and success are too many, for me to start listing them. But their association with Anand Bakshi is the longest one, and must be the biggest such combo. I would guess the total songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal may have around 2000 written by Anand Bakshi.

On this birthday occasion , I am presenting the song from the film Krodhi (1981), by this very same team/combo of Lakshmikant-Pyarelal with AnandBakshi. The singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar. The was a multi-starrer film by Subhash Ghai. The starcast was Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Maushmi Chatterjee, Zeenat Aman, Shashi Kapoor etc and of course the love birds in the song, Sachin and Ranjeeta. The four songs of the film, which I remember are all nice one’s. But the movie is making a debut here on the blog with this song.

I have seen the movie, so can give a little outline of the story. Dharmendra is a gangster or smuggler, Zeenat Aman works for him and has a lot of regard and respect for him, as he has helped her a lot with the responsibilities. Zeenat Aman meets Shashi Kapoor (Police Inpector ?) at her sister’s wedding. Zeenat Aman and Shashi Kapoor get married, but Shashi Kapoor is not aware of the connection between Zeenat Aman and Dharmendra. The police is looking to arrest Dharmendra but he escapes and takes shelter in a village, where people mistake him for a godman or sadhu. Dharmendra adopts the disguise to escape the police. Sachin and Ranjita are the two characters who don’t make much difference to the story.

In the song, which Sachin and Ranjita are singing in the garden ‘Chameli baagh”, Dharmendra is looking on, and I think later on he helps them in some way or they are both murdered, by the villains. Dharmendra is also reminded of his late wife Maushmi Chatterjee while watching the song. Lata Mangeshkar is play backing for both Ranjita and Maushmi in the song.

The sort of word play which was a signature of Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi songs, is visible in this song.

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 18
——————————————————
30/08/2020 – Birth anniversary of Shailendra

As children’s songs go, there is a healthy dose available of such songs in hindi films especially in the 50’s and 60’s. Or rather, I should say a healthy dose of children’s songs too along with the other types of songs be it religious songs, happy go lucky masti songs, romantic songs, sad songs, club/party songs, dance/folk/stage songs, road-side tamasha songs, comic songs and the philosophical/theme songs. Not to forget the lori/lullaby songs. Good quality songs were many and all the songs were made with painstaking care. So there is nothing like finding unheard songs. They may not remain in memory some months after the actual post is done, because the memory I find is a very fickle thing. It retains the information fed to it years ago, but is rather quick to do away with recently found and heard things. This is no fault of the songs concerned.

There are iconic songs like
‘nanhe munne bachche teri mutthi mein kya hai’, “naani teri morni ko mor le gaye” and
“Lakdi ki kaathhi kaathhi pe ghodaa” to name a few.

Two of three songs song which came to mind are written by Shailendra.

Here I found a children’s song from a the film ‘Deep jalte rahe” (1959), a duet by Rafi sahab with Vijaya, composed by Roshan-to commemorate the birth anniversary today of the lyricist Shailendra. He was a fourth pillar of the one of its kind winsome foursome of Shankar-Jaikishan-Shailendra-Hasrat Jaipuri. We see these names on many famous films credits. The team could not have been the legends they are without one another. Shailendra teamed up with other music directors also with notable success. A prime example is ‘Guide” with S. D. Burman.

Shankardas Kesarilal Shailendra was born on 30th August, 1923 and died on 14th December, 1966 at the age of just 43.

He is said to have died with heartbreak after the failure ‘Teesri Kasam” at the box office, a film close to his heart, also produced by him. Life is nothing if not full of obstacles. One needs to be full of strength to cross each hurdle. What should have been just such obstacle in Shailendra’s life, making him stronger for newer journey, turned out to be his last hurray. The film is a classic on its own, and plus the songs are pearls dotting the necklace of gold. I quote from one of the songs from the film, penned by Shailendra :

sitaaron ne munh pherkar
kaha alvida humsafar
chala kaarwaan ab chalaa
aa aa
aa bhi jaa
raat dhalne lagi
ho
chaand chhupne chala
ho
aa aa bhi jaa

oofaq par khadi hai sehar
andhera hai dil mein idhar
oofaq par khadi hai sehar
ho
andhera hain dil mein idhar
wahi roz ka silsila
aa
aa bhi jaa
raat dhalne lagi
chaand chhupne chala
ho
aa aa bhi jaa

Remembrance day of Kalyanji :
24th August :

Since yesterday, when I chanced upon “Dharmatma”(1975) in the “list of songs-moviewise”, I am in a fix. How to start this post !

Unbelievably, only two famous songs from ‘Dharmatma” are posted.
kya khoob lagti ho and

tere chehre mein wo jaadoo hai

Dharmatma had only 4 songs but all were quality songs. As a tribute to Kalyanji (of Kalyanji-Anandji duo) on his 20th death anniversary, I am presenting this song “meri galiyon se logon ki yaari badh gayi”, a duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. Indeevar is the lyricist.

I have seen this movie in the early 80’s at Belgaum. A lasting memory is of people throwing coins in the theatre, when the song ‘tere chehre mein woh jaadoo hai’ began. I have seen the movie one more time after that, on TV. So the impression is of that pristine scenery of locations in Afghanistan, the colourful and beautiful Hema Malini, those light romantic songs, which are light yet intense. This is, I think is the hall mark of Kalyanji-Anandji, not so much in the early phase of late 50’s but later movies, I find the compositions to be a bit more intense than what other music directors were making. They are basically in the mold of Shankar-Jaikishan, similar to Laxmikant-Pyarelal. But Kalyanji-Anandji’s compositions usually were intense and sharp, but fell short of going over the top. The music orchestration was sounded brighter, never dull. Take the songs of “Saraswati Chandra”, understated yet intense on emotion. Or the songs of ‘Jab jab phool khile”, it was like extreme emotion of a Madan Mohan’s and the unwillingness of SDB to cross a boundary. I think S D Burman crossed his own self-imposed boundaries only in “Pyaasa” and “Guide” to some extent. But that is another story.

This unique balance is visible in numerous songs they composed for Manoj Kumar’s films and Feroz Khan’s films too. Take “Purab paschim”’songs, they are a study in contrasting compositions, from “koyi jab tumhaara hriday tod de” to “purva suhaani aayi re….”. Through 70’s they were using a mix of male playback singers for singing for various camps and also actors, including Rajesh Khanna. For female songs, by and large they were faithful to Lata Mangeshkar.

I think the audio cassette I had of sad songs of Mukesh, had mostly Kalyanji-Anandji’s compositions. I will try and list them.
koyi jab tumhaara hriday tod de
Chaandi ki deewaar na todi
Mujhko iss raat ki tanhaayi mein aawaaz na do
Hum chhod chale hain mehfil ko
Main to ek khwaab hoon
Waqt karta jo wafaa
Mere toote huye dil se
Hamne tujhko pyaar kiya hai itna
Jis dil mein basa thha pyaar tera

Another thing to be noted here is that most of them are written by Indeewar. The Kalyanji-Anandi teaming with Indeewar was pretty consistent throughout, with few exceptions like “Kora Kaaghaz” and “Jab Jab Phool Khile”. By 1980’s they had also teamed up with Anjaan.

Coming back to the film ‘Dharmatma”, it could have been tacky and gone out of control. But Feroze Khan as director did manage to make this film a worthy adaptation of ‘The Godfather”. An indianised version couldn’t have been better than this in the 70’s. Clearly the outdoor location shots are fabulous and full of vibrant colour. Cinematography must have been one of the reasons for its popularity when released, the same year with the block buster like “Sholey”. Later on more technically slick movies could be made, but no one could quite capture the brilliance of the deserted sunny Afghanistan. The ‘buzkashi’ scenes were replicated in ‘Khuda Gawaah” later. It is also a fact that need for glorification and glamorization of nomadic tribes held sway over authentic portrayal of the tribal lifestyle of the region.

The song is a function song, where Hema Malini as ‘Reshma’ is dancing, more trying to make a statement and asserting her independence to both Feroz Khan and Danny Danzongpa.

I quote these lines from another song (waqt karta jo wafaa) by Indeevar :

ham bhi pyaase hain ye saaqi ko bataa bhi na sake
saamne jaam thaa aur jaam uthaa bhi na sake
kaash ham ghairat-e-mehfil ke na maare hote

Certainly, Reshma here has no such hang-ups 🙂 🙂

And Hema Malini as the gypsy girl is yet to be emulated by anyone. It is the magic of Cinema in Eastman colour. I want to say no more.

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 17
————————————————————————–
20/08/2020 – Death anniversary of Avinash Vyas
———————————————————————————–

The names of both Avinash Vyas and Bharat Vyas remind everyone of mythological movies and their bhajans and religious songs. On this death anniversary, I found a song, a Rafi solo with a difference. It is nothing like a bhajan or a mythological situation song, but appears to be roadside tamasha category song.

This is a fun song from the film Aadhi roti (1957). This movie has actors like Prem Adeeb, Master Bhagwan, Sulochana Latkar, Daisy Irani and Manorama. The songs are composed by Avinash Vyas and written by (unrelated) Bharat Vyas. As per the Rafi excel sheet, this song is performed on screen by Master Bhagwan. It figures as it does sound like a Bhagwan Dada song.

Three songs from the film are posted as below :
teri duniya mein aa kar bhi
so jaa re so jaa mere laal
main gori gori gori gori chhori

Actually the lullaby song “so ja re so jaa mere laal” is a multiple version song, with one more sad solo by GeetaDutt and a sad version by Rafi Sahab. I am glad that I visited the songs of this movie today. The sad version is something else and I don’t want to stop listening to it. Reminds me of another multiple version sad, lullaby song where Rafi Sahab scores a unbeaten ton in cricketing parlance: aaj kal mein dhal gaya. Composing a song, bringing it to the best possible shape and rehearsing it, till you get the perfect rendition with true expression must be as much hard work as it takes to complete a century in the test match. But then “Beti Bete” was in 1964, with Shankar-Jaikishan being so busy that they were canning more than one song in a day, as per some reports. So here Rafi Sahab and also other singers had to deliver the right take much quickly and had not much opportunity to be pedantic.

Excel sheet is also listing many Rafi songs composed by Avinash Vyas for Gujrati films. I would have attempted to post a gujrati song, especially the ‘Garba” songs like ‘mehnditevaavi’. But I hesitated, due to my half knowledge of the language. A Marathi song should be a safer bet to add in this series.

Avinash Vyas may not be one of the greats of the golden era of hindi film songs. This is a 1957 song, just about the right time when the composers had finally digested that a phenomena like Rafi Sahab exists. S. D.Burman was in his peak with films like “Pyaasa”, “paying Guest” etc., O. P. Nayyar was also getting into his groove and played a masterstroke with “Naya Daur”. Madan Mohan was still getting there with “Gateway of India”. But I feel strongly, that a couple of songs from this film “Aadhi Roti”, especially the lori song is a quality creation, deserves to hold its head high. This “lori” Rafi version has overshadowed the song I am posting here, as I heard it just now, after the present song and prepared the lyrics.

But I liked this song a lot too, for its peppy and mischievous spirit and Rafi sahab’s expertise and perfect delivery and timing in singing it. Another song, where it feels as if, more than one person is singing it, when actually only Rafi Sahab’s voice is there and no chorus to accompany. And plus also the fact that he seems to have so much time to sing not just the words, but accompany them with a lot of his typical ‘murkiyan’. All of this is done within the blink of an eye. Well, almost.

Any wonder that I wish, I was a butterfly on the wall, when all these recordings were happening in the recording studios.

This Rafi solo is presented, as a tribute to Avinash Vyas on his remembrance day.

This is Gulzar !

— KITAABEN —

Kitaaben jhaankti hain band almaari ke sheeshon se
badi hasrat se takti hain
mahinon ab mulaqaaten nahin hotin
jo shaamen unn ki sohbat mein kata karti thhin, ab aksar
guzar jaati hain computer ke pardon par
badi bechain rehti hain kitaaben
unhen ab neend mein chalne ki ‘aadat ho gayi hai

badi hasrat se takti hain
jo qadren wo sunaati thhin
ke jin ke cell kabhi marte nahin thhe
wo qadren ab nazar aati nahin ghar mein
jo rishte wo sunaati thhin
wo saare udhde udhde hain

koyi safha palat-ta hoon to ik siski nikalti hai
kayi lafzon ke ma’ani gir pade hain
bina patton ke sukhe tund lagte hain vo alfaaz
jin par ab koyi ma’ani nahin ugte
bahut se istelaahen hain
jo mitti ki sakoron ki tarah bikhri padi hain
gilaason ne unhen matruk kar daala

zaban par zaiqa aata thha jo safhe palatne ka
ab ungli click karne se bas ek
jhapki guzarti hai
bahut kuchh tah-ba-tah khultaa chalaa jaata hai parde par
kitaabon se jo zaati raabta thha kat gayaa hai
kabhi seene pe rakh ke let jaate thhe
kabhi godi mein lete thhe
kabhi ghutnon ko apne rehal ki soorat bana kar
neem sajde mein padha karte thhe, chhute thhe jabeen se
wo saara ilm to milta rahegaa ‘aayinda bhi
magar wo jo kitaabon mein milaa karte thhe sookhe phool aur
mehke huey ruq’ae
kitaaben maangne, girne utthaane ke bahane rishte bante thhe
unn ka kya hogaa
wo shayad ab nahin honge !

—– GULZAR

I think the above poem is enough as introduction and ta’aruf of Gulzar Sahab.
Faced with such ‘qalaam’, what does it matter when and where he was born. Yes, Gulzar sahab has turned 86 today. May he live to be 186 or more, as long as he creates such ‘naayab nageene’ as nazmen and naghme.

— Urdu zabaan —-

Ye kaisa ishq hai urdu zaban kaa,
mazaa ghultaa hai lafzon ka zuban par
ki jaise paan mein mehenga qimaam ghultaa hai
ye kaisa ishq hai urdu zaban kaa….

nasha aataa hai urdu bolne mein
gilauri ki tarah hain munh lagi sab isltelaahen
lutf deti hai, halaq chhooti hai urdu to,
halaq se jaise mai ka ghunt utarta hai

badi aristocracy hai zaban mein
faqeeri mein nawaabi ka mazaa deti hai urdu
agarche ma’ani kam hote hain urdu mein
alfaaz ki ifraat hoti hai

magar phir bhi buland awaaz padhiye
to bohat hi mu’atabar lagti hain baaten
kahin kuchh dur se kaanon mein padhti hai agar urdu
to lagtaa hai ke din jaadon ke hain khidki khuli hai,
dhoop andar aa rahi hai

ajab hai ye zaban urdu
kabhi kahin safar karte agar koyi musaafir
sher padh de ‘mir’, ‘ghalib’ ka
wo chaahe ajnabi ho,
yahi lagtaa hai wo mere watan ka hai
badi sha’ista lehje mein kisi se urdu sun kar
kya nahin lagtaa ki ek tehzeeb ki awaaz hai urdu.

—– GULZAR ——-

How true the above thoughts are, so inherently accurate for urdu, the spoken language.

Thanks dear ‘Peevesie’s Mom’, for reminding me of Gulzar Sahab birthday and this movie ‘Hu Tu Tu’ and its deeply meaningful songs, written by Gulzar sahab.
Also a well composed and picturised song. Composer is Vishal Bharadwaj and singers are mainly Lata Mangeshkar and Hariharan. There are more voices singing some goan rhythm at the start and koli folk song in the middle.

But the star of the show is Gulzar sahab’s unmatched poetry.

Remembrance day for Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan:

Since 31st July, I am on an unprecedented spree of anniversary and birthday posts. When I scrolled down the month of August in the “Anniversary dates” page of the blog, I saw that on 16th August there are three birthdays and one death Anniversary. Birthdate is of Hemlata, Saif Ali Khan and Manisha Koirala. Incidentally both Manisha Koirala and Saif share not just the birthdate, but the year too, both born in 1970. So both are turning 50 today.

Nusrat Fateh Ali khan is among the legendary musicians of 20th Century. He was born in 1948 and breathed his last on 16th August, 1997, at the age of only 49. It is a tragedy for the talented musicians, who received international accolades, name and fame in his short life. A vocalist, an institution in the qawwali form of the singing, a composer and a writer also for these qawwalis. He sang other poets qalaam too, but most of his renditions are credited as written and composed by himself. Listening to his rendition of these qawwali’s is an experience to behold, especially the recordings of live performances in private functions. Most of his qawwali’s have by now been remixed in some way, or somewhat repackaged and mostly recorded in the voice of his nephew Raahat Fateh Ali Khan. One such example is “mere rashk-e-qamar”, which is not a patch on the original rendition of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Qawwali is a much loved and revered form of musical renditions in the sub-continent. In my short and narrow experience and viewpoint, this is a form of music, which has never failed to impress and influence the listener. I have seen unlikeliest of people fall into the spell of this. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s forte was sufiana with a mix of folk and Hindustani classical. His influence on hindi film music was evident even before his music actually arrived on Indian scene, from across the border. It is true that music and strains of sufiana in the case, know no boundaries.

I feel, the revival of appealing music, in hindi films from 90’s onwards is due to the influence of this sufiana music from across the border, and a few fresh blood which arrived on the young shoulders of A. R. Rehman. Others followed, but the A.R. Rehman style of music and the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s style of sufiana, though rarely crossing over to each other’s side, continued their journey and the journey continued for over two decades. This has put the contemporary hindi film music in the international market as a saleable product. Punjabi Pop’s role in this process is also there.

Oka, now we go on to the birthdays and anniversary. When I saw these name, this movie “Kachche Dhaage” seen maybe on cable TV, surfaced in the memory. Good songs was the first recollection, plus impression of Manisha’s beauty, scenic views in songs, Saif Ali Khan’s Sauvé city suits, with scenes of desert etc. Ajay Devgan’s role of angry young man was the main lead with Manisha and Saif is the step brother from city with Namrata Shirodkar in tow.

So I have a sufiana qawwali which is written, composed and sung by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, from the film ‘Kachche Dhaage”(1999). Saif and Manisha both are present in this qawwali, which is performed on screen by Anu Kapoor. With this song Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan makes a debut on the blog as a singer and lyricist. One song composed by him was earlier posted.

This movie has more great songs, with punjabi folk flavor, so they should last us a few more anniversaries and birthdays, in coming years.

Chorus

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa
Nawaazta hai jo sab ko
Wo dil nawaaz hai tu oo ooo
Niyaazmand hain sab
Aur beniyaaz hai tu u
Zamaane bhar ke banaata hai
Saare bigde kaam
Kareem saare zamaane ka
Kaarsaaz hai tu ooo oo

Iss shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna
Iss shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna
Dar pe jo sawaali aate hain
Iss shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna
Dar pe jo sawaali aate hain

Ik teri kareemi ka sadqaa
Ik teri kareemi ka sadqaa
Wo man ki muraaden paate hain
Ik teri kareemi ka sadqaa
Wo man ki muraaden paate hain

Iss shaan-e-karam

khaali na rahi

dukh dard ke maaron ki jholi

kya tera karam hai dar pe tere
kya tera karam hai dar pe tere
bharti hai hazaaron ki jholi
shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna
Iss shaan-e-karam

mushkil ko tu aasaan banaa detaa hai
mushkil ko tu aasaan banaa detaa hai
har guncha-e-ummeed khilaa detaa hai

taqdeer se ho jaaye jo bhai se judaa
uss bhai ko bhai se milaa detaa hai
shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna
Iss shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna

Din raat hai mangton ka pheraa
Din raat hai mangton ka pheraa
Pa ma ga ma ga ga

Din raat hai mangton ka pheraa
Din raat hai mangton ka pheraa
Kya khoob sakhi hai dar teraa
Kya khoob sakhi hai dar teraa
Milti hai karam ki bheekh unhen
Milti hai karam ki bheekh unhen
Daaman jo yehaan phailaate hain
Milti hai karam ki bheekh unhen
Daaman jo yehaan phailaate hain

Milti hai karam ki bheekh unhen

Iss dar ki sakhaawat kya kahiye
Iss dar ki sakhaawat kya kahiye
Ga ga ga ga ni sa ga ga ga ga ga
Ga ga ga ga ni sa ga ga ga ga ga
Ga ga ga ga ni sa ga ga ga ga ga
Iss dar ki sakhaawat kya kahiye
Iss dar ki sakhaawat kya kahiye
Pakke rishte teri rehmat se jo ban jaate hain
Pakke rishte teri rehmat se jo ban jaate hain
Kachche dhaage se bandhe log chale aate hain
Kachche dhaage se bandhe log chale aate hain
Tu mila detaa hai bichhde huey insaanon ko
Tu mila detaa hai bichhde huey insaanon ko
Tere andaaz-e-karam shaan ye dikhlaate hain
Iss dar ki sakhaawat
kya kahiye
Iss dar ki sakhaawat kya kahiye

Khaali na gaya mangtaa koyi
Khaali na gaya mangtaa koyi
Mohtaaj yehaan jo aate hain
Mohtaaj yehaan jo aate hain
Wo jholiyaan bhar ke jaate hain

Mohtaaj yehaan jo aate hain
Wo jholiyaan bhar ke jaate hain

Iss shaan-e-karam ka kya kehna
