Hullo to all in Atuldom

Back to writing after a break and am having a problem trying to get my thoughts in order. These last few days I have made a few posts mentally and here I am trying to write about one of my favourite actors who would have turned 99 today.

The year 1972 saw a new genre of films wherein two actors who were past their prime – 61 and 52 was definitely not the age where actors play college students or young characters- were playing the central characters in a movie where the lead actor or the supposed- hero played second fiddle to these two. I am talking of Victoria No 203 by Brij Sadanah. Brij himself made another movie a few years later “Chori Mera Kaam” with these two seniors playing central characters. I am talking of an all-time favourite Jodi of cinelovers – Ashok Kumar and Pran.

S. K. Kapur was another producer -director who made this Jodi the centre of his stories in the moves of 70s and early 80s – Apna Khoon, Shankar Dada, Durga, Maan Gaye Ustaad. But the best tribute to the lovable Jodi was Kapur’s movie “Raja Aur Rana” – it didn’t have a regular actor playing the hero. Puneet Issar made his debut in this movie and was supposed to be a hero but “Raja aur Rana” was essentially Ashok Kumar- Pran all over. They did every antic that they were famous for from the time “Victoria No 203” became a success.

Before I go any further let me clarify one thing- Ashok Kumar and Pran did not team up for the first time in “Victoria No 203”; they have been cast together in movies since the 50s or even before that. Back then they used to play serious characters, mostly the protagonist and the antagonist. “Victoria No 203” changed all that. We saw the comic timing of these two senior actors.

I need to clarify one more thing- both these actors have performed in song situations through their career but post “Victoria 203” that also changed. The ability of these two to switch from insane characters of Raja and Rana can be gauged from the fact that about the same time Ashok Kumar played the grandfather in “Anuraag” and Pran was the grandfather in “Parichay”; Pransaab (as he used to be addressed) also played a regular cigar munching villain in “Roop Tera Mastana” that year. Such great actors and trailblazers – there are no replacements for them only actors who are inspired by them and aspire to be like them.

Today I bring to the blog a song from S. K. Kapur produced and Shibu Mitra directed “Raja Aur Rana”. The cast included Ajit, Shakti Kapoor, Puneet Issar, Madhu Malhotra, Chand Usmani, Aaloka etc etc supporting Ashok Kumar and Pran (Pran was always billed in the credits of movies as “And Pran”).

I have not seen the movie but I fell in love with this super Jodi all over again when I accidentally saw this song a few months back. We have Pransaab cross-dressing in this song and Shakti Kapoor and his henchmen playing the peeping- toms on the “loving couple”. The song was written by Varma Malik and Bappi Lahiri was the music director. We have Kishore Kumar singing for Ashok Kumar and Mahesh Kumar singing for Pransaab – the female voice belongs to Mahesh Kumar about whom our in-house encyclopaedia had written a few lines in a post of his. The post contained a song sung by Mahesh Kumar in dual voice, it seems he could sing in 32 voices.

This is such a cute husband-wife exchange with which we remember the adorable Pransaab on his 99th Birth anniversary.

I would also like to wish a fellow Atulite on his birthday today with lots of fun and music in his life. All the best to Avinashji on his birthday.


Song-Aji sunte ho (Raja Aur Rana)(1983) Singers-Mahesh Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Bappi Lahiri
Both

Lyrics

haaye haaye
haaye haaye haaye
aji sunte ho
o aji sunte ho
haan sunta hoon
aji sunte ho
lekar tum akhbaar ka panna
race ke ghode ginte ho
o aji sunte ho
koi vaid bulaao
koi doctor laao
hakeem mangaao
aji sunte ho

mujhe nauwaan lagaa hai
ik dard jagaa hai
haaye yahaan se uthha
aur yahaan gayaa hai
shaadi na hoti
main aaj na roti
dulhan na banti
bacche na janti
zaalim ye mahina
mera dhadke hai seena
tu dekh le apna
ye kaarnaama
kyun mujhe phansaaya
kar kar ke drama
ki toone mujhse
kartoot hai koi
tu mard nahin hai
jinn bhoot hai koi
o aji sunte ho
o aji sunte ho
haan sunta hoon

oye
ab kyun roti hai meri dulhan
pyaari tumhen yaad nahi aati
ab kyun roti hai meri dulhan
pyaari tumhen yaad nahin aati
woh baatein saari
har roz tu kehti
mujhe sair kara de
mujhe ticket manga de
mujhe film dikha de
chal India gate mein
zara ghoom ke aayen
aur Tajmahal mein
hum khaana khaayen
tu surkhi laali
powder bhi lagaati
aur daal ke surma
tu teer chalaati
tu karke fashion
har roz aa jaati
aur kehti le chal
mujhe Juhu Chowpati
wahaan paani puri
tu khoob udaati
kabhi idli dosa
kabhi kulfi khaati
main ho gaya kadka
palle nahin paayi
tera sair sapaata
kha gaya kamaayi
o bhool gayi tu
jab maze udaati
ab dard uthha toh
phir kyun chillaati
main sunta hoon
jeb mein kitne paise reh gaye
baitha baitha ginta hoon
main sunta hoon

munnu ke paapa
tera karoon siyaapa
mujhe hichki aaye (hitchki)
mera ji machlaaye (hitchki)
mujhe saans na aaye (hitchki)
mera sar chakraaye
mera munh bedardi
kya halaat kar di
main baithhi baithhi
khaaun hichkaule
koi amma amma
ander se bole
tu roz yeh kehta
ke munda hoga
agar tujhpe gaya woh
koi gunda hoga
main aath maheene
mushqil se bitaaye
tu pyaqr se ek din
nahin poochhne aaye
o aji sunte ho
koi vaidh bulaao
koi doctor laao
hakeem mangao
o aji sunte ho

kyon taane deti
sapnon ki raani
tere dushman mar jaayen
teri jiye jawaani
pehla aur dooja
kab tumhen laga thha
na tujhko khabar thhi
na mujhko pata thha
phir teeje maheene
meri khench rajaai
toone aadhi raat ko
khushkhabri sunaai
aur chauthhe paanchve
jab tu ghabraai
aur chhathe maheene
tujhe ulti aayi
main bhaag ke aaya
tujhe paass bulaaya
tujhe maalish ki thi
tujhe tel lagaaya
chhodo ab gussa
aa tujhe sula doon
tu thhak chuki hai
tere paanv daba doon
hai hai hai hai hai hai hai hai

biwi ke har koi (some sound by Ashok Kumar)
hai paanv dabaata
tu tel lagaake
ehsaan jataata
kis baat ke liye
phir tu akadta
gharwaala hoke
mere sar pe chadhta
aurat ka farz hai
bacchon ko janna
koi toone anokha
nahin kaam ye karna

mere paass na aana
batti na bujhaana
mujhe seeti bajaa ke
nahin kabhi bulana
meri tauba tauba
kaanon ko pakdoon
hai meri galti
main naak bhi ragdoon

jhaado na bhaashan
ka milta ration
hai ye situation
karwaao operation
dono nasbandi
chal kar karwaayen
kyun apne desh ki
aabaadi badhaayen

is mehangaai mein
ek baccha kaafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi

Blog Day : 3822 Post No. : 14822

Hullo to all of Atuldom 🙂

At the outset I must wish all the followers of Atulsongaday a happy and music-filled 2019.

January 4th is one of the dates for which I just have to write a song, with or without a post. How can I miss remembering our very own R D Burman- not that we can escape his music on other days, right? Every second song that plays in our mind would invariably be a Pancham composition specially if we have grown up in the 70s or 80s. Even those who subscribe to the view that the music of the 70s or the later years was not a patch on the music of the golden era would grudgingly say they love “chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko”; “mere naina saawan bhadon”; “kya hua tera waada”; “jis gali mein tera ghar na ho balama”; “abhi toh haath mein jaam hai” or “zindagi hai khel koi pass koi fail”. So, there is no escape from Panchamda or R D Burman and you have a song by him for any genre, mood occasion etc.

Panchamda’s music has helped the careers of so many actors and actresses; launched a few star kids and most often it used to be songs written by Majrooh or Anand Bakshi. But today I found an RD song written by Nida Fazli. I have been hearing and humming it since I had heard it for the first time in the 80s and for some reason presumed that it was written by Anand Bakshi (so much for my so-called knowledge about movies and HFM).

One of the reasons for my presumption could be that the hero of the movie was Randhir Kapoor. But that is also a misplaced assumption, as the scene stealer in the movie is or was Sanjeev Kumar and in a double-role too.

So here is the song from the 1981 RK Film’s (another assumption bursts here, all these years I thought Randhir Kapoor was the producer, turns out to be Raj Kapoor) “Biwi ‘o’ Biwi” directed by Rahul Rawail. This movie had all songs except one by Nida Fazli i.e. 5 out of 6 was by Nida and the last one by Vitthalbhai Patel. RD used Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle for playback. Today’s song is by Kishore Kumar on Randhir Kapoor who is seen romancing Poonam Dhillon in front of all her friends which is headed by Prema Narayan.

I was trying to visualise how he would have looked today- at 80- if he had not left us all those years ago. He didn’t even wait to enjoy the success of “1942 a love story”. But I don’t want to push the readers’ mind into sadness as a song composed by RD or Panchamda- as people loved to call him – has always had the ability to bring the listener on to the dance floor.


Song-Sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai (Biwi O Biwi)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Nida Fazli,MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai

jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

mohan ki raadha hai,
majnu ki hai laila
har yug mein lagta hai
dilwaalon ka mela
mohan ki raadha hai,
majnu ki hai laila
har yug mein lagta hai
dilwaalon ka mela
ek se do huye
pyaar ho gaya
arre sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

patthar ki masjid ho
ya chaandi ki moorat
duniya mein pyaar bina koi nahin teerath
patthar ki masjid ho
ya chaandi ki moorat
duniya mein pyaar bina koi nahin teerath
dil se dil jab mile pyaar ho gaya
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi ye mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

saagar ki oar chale
nadiya ghoonghat khole
bhanwara bhi kaliyon ke aage-peechhe dole
saagar ki oar chale
nadiya ghoonghat khole
bhanwra bhi kaliyon ke aage-peechhe dole
faasle kam huye
pyaar ho gaya
sadiyon se duniya mein yahi to kissa hai
ek hi toh ladki hai
ek hi toh ladka hai
jab bhi yeh mil gaye
pyaar ho gaya

सदियों से दुनिया में
ये ही तो किस्सा है
एक ही तो लड़की है
एक ही तो लड़का है
जब भी ये
मिल गए
प्यार हो गया

Blog Day : 3816 Post No. : 14814

Hullo to all of Atuldom

I seem to be running short of time daily. And I have missed many dates in the month of DECEMBER for which I would have loved to atleast write out the lyrics and send it to Atulji for appropriate posts. Birthdates of Shatrughan Sinha, Dilip Kumar, Rajnikant, Raj Kapoor, Om Prakash, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan etc. I even had songs of Suresh Oberoi, Mahipal, John Abraham ready in my head. Atulji surprised me by nearly missing Mohd. Rafi’s birthdate, but trust the eternal Rafi Bhakts in our group to send in posts on time and remind Atulji (he always tells that he is bad at remembering dates 🙂 🙂 ).

29th December is another important date for bhakts of Hindi films of the 70s- it is the birthdate of Kaka aka Rajesh Khanna of the charming smile that got him a huge female-fan-following that was crazy enough to write him letters dipped in blood, and I have read in numerous articles and heard hundreds of interviews about how his car would be covered with kisses of his fans. Rajesh Khanna the first real superstar of Bollywood who had 15 consecutive solo hits from 1969 to 1971- an unbroken record. He had 127 films (117 released and 11 unreleased) as protagonist and only 22 multi-star films. He had a fan-following among his fraternity too and Mehmood parodied him in “Bombay To Goa” where the driver and conductor of the bus were called ‘Rajesh’ and ‘Khanna’.

We all know that Rajesh Khanna’s career had a great take off with the double role that he played in Shakti Samantha’s ‘Aradhana’ singing “ho oooo,he aeae, ha aaaa” on an open jeep travelling alongside the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway’s toy train to a bashful Sharmila Tagore pretending to be disturbed in her reading of the Alister Maclean’s “Where Eagles Dare”. But his pairings with Asha Parekh, Mumtaz, Hema Malini, Rekha, Rakhee, Zeenat and others of the 70s were no less eye-pleasing. His most popular songs may have been sung by Kishore Kumar but can anyone forget “Ye jo chilman hai dushman hai humari”; “bina badra ke bijuriya kaise chamke”; “humse ka bhool hui jo yeh sazaa humka mili”; “arre jana hai toh jao boolayenge nahin” or the forever classic “zindagi kaisi hai paheli hai re”. A lot of the singers of the 70s and 80s have had opportunity to give playback for Kaka but we cannot escape the Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna songs.

For today’s post I have chosen a Rajesh Khanna – Hema Malini song- this was a favourite pair of mine post “zindagi ek safar hai suhana” and Kudrat, Mehbooba, Rajput etc only made me love this pair even more. They have appeared in 10-15 movies together.

The song I chose is from the 1979 released Mehmood directed “Janta Hawaldaar”. Hema Malini had an extended guest appearance in the movie. I have also managed to steer clear of ‘Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna’ addiction as also the Anand Bakshi- R D Burman strangle. The song is sung by Anwar in a very Rafi-like manner with Majrooh as the lyricist ad Rajesh Roshan as composer. And the added bonus in the song is Rajesh Khanna has danced differently.

This may be my last post for the year. So I thought I should take this opportunity to wish all of Atuldom a very Happy 2019. And close the year thinking of Kaka or Jatin Khanna (his birthname)- our very own Rajesh Khanna.


Song-Aadhi roti saara kabaab (Janta Hawaldaar)(1979)Singers-Lata, Anwar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Blog Day : 3795 Post No. : 14783

Hullo, hi, pranaam. Good day to all of Atuldom.

Today (8 december 2018) we have a handsome man turning a year older. He has crossed 80 a few years ago but that has not reduced his charisma or charm or fan-following. He is still active on the silver-screen, even if only in home productions, and has his sons as his co-stars.

He has had a rather loooonnnngggg journey having started in 1960. He was the son of a village school headmaster in Ludhiana of Punjab. His mother was the one who supported him in fulfilling his dream of being an actor (he has mentioned this in various interviews of his). He was bitten by the acting bug after seeing Dilip Kumar on-screen. To pursue his dream, he entered the Filmfare New Talent Contest and won it. He was launched by Arjun Hingorani in “Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere” in 1960. From then on, he has been entertaining us.

Dharmendra – the he-man with a soft heart. I have read in numerous of his interviews and heard him on television too that his home is always open to anyone who needs his help. The first time I registered this actor or fell in love with him was probably in “Guddi” along with Jaya Bhadhuri (she was also shown to be a Dharmendra fan) or was it in “Seeta aur Geeta”. Or it could be that I saw “Sholay” fell in love with Veeru and then subsequently saw “Guddi” and “Seeta aur Geeta” on Doordarshan and realized who Raka or Dharmendra (he played himself in Guddi) the actor was.

After “Sholay” I have seen many of his movies, even those where he stood next to a bookshelf and sang – “ya dil ki suno duniyawalon ya mujhko abhi chup rehne do” or stood looking out of a window with the “Meghdhoot” in had singing – “tum pukarlo, tumhara intezaar hai”. Loved him even with his heavy lip-sticked- makeup singing “aap ki haseen rukh pe aaj naya noor hai”.

How can anyone forget his pairing with Meena Kumari, Asha Parekh, Waheeda Rehman, Nutan, Vyjayanthimala, Sadhana, Saira Bano, Mumtaz, Babita and all the other ladies of the 60s. He is a lucky guy as he got to romance all the leading ladies of the 70s & 80s. He was sensible enough in not trying to play a romantic lead in the 90s and the few movies where he had heroines it was either Jaya Prada or Sridevi. In the other movies he played a mentor or guardian to the hero or heroine as in “Dadagiri” {1987} he mentors Padmini Kolhapure and helps her in her mission to take revenge against Amrish Puri.

Similarly, in the 1988 “Paap ko jalakar raakh kar doonga” he is shown his to keep his emotions under control in front of his niece played by Farha after her husband is killed by ‘goondas’ and quietly trying to take revenge against the people responsible of the havoc caused in his ‘hasta khelta’ niece’s life. He is an actor who held his ground during the Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan wave.

There are many movies starring Dharmendra and we have covered all his popular ones. Atleast that is what I expected. But I am proved wrong there are many more out there which makes it a difficult job to decide what song to present here. I am taking the easy way out and posting the song which is topmost on my head. It is by the Kishore Kumar- Anand Bakshi- R D Burman trio, from the 1978 Pramod Chakravarty produced and directed “Azaad” which was decently successful at the box office.

It was a typical masala movie where Hema Malini played a rich-spoilt- haughty princess and Dharam an eccentric do-gooder (Ashok) who first has his run-ins with the Rajkumari, teaches her to respect food, the poor etc and finally lands up in a factory owned by her. The movie goes through the routine of the princess trying to humiliate Ashok, then falling in love with him and the evil villains trying every trick to bring the movie to the climax.

Today’s song happens when Hema is in the haughty phase and Dharam wants to protect all of the jungle creatures if possible. The song shows our darling Dharam in his trade mark style of being rough and tough (junglee to an extent) and Prem Chopra to be a little stupid. But this is the perfect song to show who or what we experienced when we saw Dharmendra on screen in the late 70s and early 80s.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday dear Veeru or Garam Dharam alias Dharmendra.


Song-Main Laila ka Majnu Shirin ka Farhaad (Aazaad)(1978) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Blog Day : 3790 Post No. : 14774

Hullo to Atuldom

At the outset let me wish our friend of Atuldom “A very Happy Birthday” and lotsa of love and joy forever. Let her always be a mystery (paheli); atleast till I meet her personally. But from accounts about her that Sudhirji had once shared on the blog and Atulji’s had written in his post I am very eager to meet her. Till then I will be content with the occasional telephonic chat or WhatsApp masti that we indulge in. Wish you a very Happy Birthday Khyatiji. Have a great day musical day.

“Amir Garib” is a movie I have seen ages back at the time it was released. I have very foggy memory of the contents, only thing I recollect is both Dev Anand and Hema play petty thieves in addition to picking each other’s pockets, and sing the same song one after the other i.e. “soni aur moni ki hai jodiajeeb” has two versions that follow each other in quick succession, in Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Also, I recollect how gorgeous and petite Hema lookedand Dev Anand’s style of dressing, and dancing.

For the plot content I consulted the WIKI and this is what I found :-

The film starts with Mumbai police officials deliberating how to crack a spate of robberies targeting the rich in the city by a masked thief called Bagula Bhagat. Inspector Anand (Sujeet Kumar) is given charge of the case.
Meanwhile, one gets to see musician and singer, Manmohan, alias Moni, working in a hotel owned by Seth Daulatram (Premnath) who is pursued by Sunita aka Soni, a pickpocket, who lives with her foster mother (Sulochana). In fact, Sunita’s rich businessman father died when he was duped by his treacherous manager, Daulatram.

Actually, Bagula Bhagat is Moni in disguise, whose informers (including Birbal and Tuntun) garner information about the misdeeds of unscrupulous traders and businessmen. These then become the target of Bagula Bhagat, who robs them of their riches only to distribute among the poor and the needy. Moni’s heart beats for the ill trodden after a childhood incident, in which his grandfather was killed by a ruthless landowner, who not only belittles him for his poverty, and mocks him about Moni’s mother having been duped by a rich man.

After a series of incidents-some interesting, others outright boring and outlandish Moni and Soni agree to teach Seth Daulatram a lesson for his misdeeds. But before that, Moni comes to know that Soni’s foster mother is actually his mother and that inspector Sujeet Kumar is the fiancé of his foster sister. The film ends after a courtroom drama, in which the judge tries Bagula Bhagat for his misdemeanours. Does the judge take a lenient view of Moni’s plea for rights of the poor? Or is he delivered a harsh punishment?

Lets have this party song today to celebrate our Khyatji’s birthday. It has the normal masala movie setup of a climax song, with the villain (Premnath) bringing in the heroine’s mother (Sulochana) as his hidden trump to thwart the hero and heroine in their mission. We have Ranjeet playing Premnath’s chamcha.

This song also shows Dev Anand in the style he was known for after the advent of colour in movies.

Blog Day : 3778 Post No. : 14758

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Once upon a not-so-long a time ago the anniversary page on our blog said that Helen – the dancing diva – celebrates her birthday on 21st October and I had sent this song – “Lovelina, Aa Gaya Main“, from ‘Agent Vinod’ (1977) for the occasion. Then over the years we got enlightened that her birthdate was 21st November. And as I sit to write this, further enlightenment strikes – she turns 80 today!!!! WOW!!! And she has been entertaining us since she was 13, having appeared in ‘Awaara’ in 1951 – that is 67 years in public eye. Of course, the last time I saw her in front of the camera was on satellite television when she appeared on the chat show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ along with another favourite of mine – Asha Parekh. And so far, the last film that she has appeared in is ‘Heroine’ (2012) which is directed by Madhur Bhandarkar and starred Kareena Kapoor in the main lead. In there she portrays the character of a film artiste who is past her prime and is forgotten by the industry.

But the truth is Helen is not a forgotten has-been as far as the industry and her fans are concerned. She is still remembered fondly whenever we hear songs that she had performed to. Her sprightly steps, her outfits which were never garish even when there were sequins and feathers stuck on them, her luxuriant hair done up in various styles – are somethings which no other dancer or actress has ever tried to copy. She was never called a plain item girl, she was always the supporting actress who had some substance to her role even if it was two or three songs, with a few emotional scenes and there were films she was the second heroine pining for the hero and would give up her love or life in the climax so that the lead pair could live HAPPILY EVER AFTER. She has had a HAPPILY EVER AFTER life personally too even though she is her husbands’ (Salim Khan) second wife, theirs is a one big happy family and all of her step children have bonded closely with her. She has an adopted daughter who was given a grand wedding in 2014 and is now a grandma to that girl’s child. Her family is growing and hope her happiness grows too.

‘Ram Balram’ is a 1980 movie produced by Tito and directed by Vijay Anand. The movie was an average success at the box office. It brought Jai (Amitabh) and Veeru (Dharmendra) together after a gap of five years – five years after the super successful ‘Sholay’ (1975). ‘Ram Balram’ was the story of two ‘chachere bhais’ (cousins) who have a score to settle with Ajit – another of their chacha – who is responsible for all the calamities that struck their family. There is also a nautch girl – Tarabai (Helen) – who has some axe to grind against Ajit. As the movie moves to the climax, we have the brothers and Tarabai reaching their goals but in the melee Tarabai dies but not before seeing her daughter (Zeenat Aman) happy and in love with Ram (Dharmendra). Today’s song is a typical ‘trying to distract the villains’ henchmen’. The song is sung by Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Dilraj Kaur. It has both Zeenat Aman and Helen dressed in sarees (unusual for them) dancing a typical Dharmendra dance. The song was written by Anand Bakshi.

I had been reserving this song for a rainy day- for a time when I write a last-minute post. And so here it is to wish both Zeenat Aman (had her birthday on 19th– turned 67) and Helen a very happy birthday.

 

Song – Balram Ne Bahut Samjhaaya Par Ram Ne Dhoka Khaaya (Ram Balram) (1980) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Dilraj Kaur, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

बलराम ने बहुत समझाया
बलराम ने बहुत समझाया
पर राम ने धोखा खाया
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
जो होना था हो गया
जो होना है हो जाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

हम पिंजरे के पंछी
पिंजरे के पंछी
हम पिंजरे के पंछी
हमसे कितनी दूर बहारें
दूर बहारें
आओ मिल कर सोचें
मिल कर सोचें
आओ मिल कर सोचें
अपनी बिगड़ी आप संवारें
तेरी सारी बातें जैसे लकड़ी की तलवारें
लकड़ी की तलवारें
लकड़ी की तलवार तो
तलवार तो
मुश्किल में काम ना आए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

हो गोरे मुख पे जुल्फ ये काली
नागन सी लहराए
नागन से रहना दूर सपेरे
तुझे डस ना जाये
जान हथेली पर जो रखे
अपने पास वो आए
आने वाले आ गए
आ गए
दिल धड़के हाए हाए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

जब तक राम की सेना आए
गाते रहो ये गाना
ओमम्ममम ओमम्ममम
जब तक राम की सेना आए
गाते रहो ये गाना
बंद हैं सारे दरवाज़े
हर रस्ता है अंजाना
अरे मुश्किल है इस रावण की लंका से बच के जाना
अरे मुश्किल है इस रावण की लंका से बच के जाना
विनती है हनुमान से
हनुमान से
लंका में आग लगाए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
जो होना था हो गया
जो होना है हो जाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

Blog Day : 3778 Post No. : 14757

‘Dhongee’ (censor certificate 23-12-1976), was a movie directed by Ashok Roy and produced by Kant Kumar productions. It seems to have had a delayed release (Wikipedia says it was released 4th May 1979). It has a starcast of Randhir Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Asrani, Sujit Kumar, Farida Jalal, Iftikhar, and Premnath. Rakesh Roshan had a friendly appearance. The lyricist to this movie was Anand Bakshi and music director was Rahul Dev Burman. The movie had five songs and Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar were the playback singers. One song of this film – “Haaye Re Haaye Tera Ghunghta” – has been posted earlier, as a contribution by Pamir Harvey where a brief outline of the movie is provided. This song is popular to this day. I remember that sometime in the late 90s or early 2000 there was a remix version to this song which triggered the memory of this song. As I sat to write this post I discovered that there has been another version of this song which has been used in a recent movie titled ‘Paisa Vasool’ (2004) – I don’t know anything about this recent movie.

Continuing after seeing the movie 🙂

So, ‘Dhongee’ is the usual masaala stuff, with a brother (Randhir Kapoor) and sister (Farida Jalal) loving and helping each other with wooing their prospective fathers-in-laws (Raj Mehra and Satyen Kappu). The brother’s aim is to fulfil his ‘dead’ father’s promise to the groom’s father and see that his sister lives a happy married life. On the way to fulfilling this he meets with an accident and ‘dies’. The insurance amount that his sister gets post the brother’s death is used by his fiancée (Neetu Singh) and her father to get the sister married. This is one part of the movie. But it is not even ‘interval time’ in the movie. Now begins the tale. The brother has actually survived the accident, has been unconscious for about 2 months, tended by a Nepali Gurkha – typically named Bahadur; recovers just in time to remember his sister’s wedding date; rushes home to witness the wedding without being seen by anyone. Now he is guilt-ridden that he has cheated the insurance company and is ready to do any activity that will earn him the money to repay the insurance. Here Bahadur steps in, suggests a name and location change & sends him to Nepal. Randhir Kapoor (Anand) is intrigued that random people around Kathmandu recognise him and escort him to a palace. After a few scenes that show the goings-on in the palace it is revealed that the palace is the headquarters for printing fake notes, belongs to Bahadur alias John and Anand has been cleverly sweet-talked into standing-in for the actual John (Premnath – it was the period when he used to play the BADMAN). Additionally, it is also revealed that the ‘dead’ father is a captive in the palace; the fiancée reaches Kathmandu (on duty, being an air-hostess); sees Anand; goes back; reports to the sister and then the whole family comes to help and rescue the father and brother and finish the movie. The songs are spread through the movie with a mandatory dance with the villain – Premnath is made to sing and dance.

Remembering Premnath today on his birth anniversary, he would have been 92. He was already the cute roly-poly fisherman – Braganza (‘Bobby’, 1973)- when I first became aware of the actor. And through the 70s he was Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh (‘Johnny Mera Naam’, 1970) Khan Badshah (‘Shor’, 1972), Dharmdas ‘Dharmatma‘ (‘Dharmatma’, 1975), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’, 1976), Sir Juda (‘Karz’, 1980) etc. I don’t remember having seen any of his movies where he had played a hero. I remember my father was a fan of the songs pictured on him in Raj Kapoor’s ‘Barsaat’ (1949) – “Patli Kamar Hai Tirchhi Nazar Hai“; “Main Gareebon Ka Dil Hoon Watan Ki Zabaan” from ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955) and “Main Raahi Bhatakne Waala Hoon” from ‘Baadal’ (1951). I recently discovered Vodafone Play – an app offered by Vodafone – which has a section dedicated to old movies, and I discovered ‘Saaqi’ (1952) – an interesting Arabian Nights type fantasy film where he co-starred with Madhubala.

Today’s song has Premnath sharing screen space with Randhir Kapoor (his nephew – ‘bhaanja’, in real life) and Neetu Singh, and shaking a leg outside the Kathmandu temple. I think this was a popular song in the past. Amit Kumar is the playback for Premnath.

Blog Day : 3766 Post No. : 14739

8th November, this year (2018) was bang in the middle of the festivities connected with the big Indian festival of lights Deepawali, which is said to symbolize Rama’s return to Ayodhya after completing the stipulated 14 years of exile. It is said that since the day he returned was the day of Amavasya whole of Ayodhya was lit up to pave the way for the Lord. Another belief is that it marks the vanquishing of the demon Narkasura by goddess Kali and so one of the five days of festivities is called “Kali Chaudas” or “Narka Chaturdashi”.

Whatever the belief it is a five day long festival of lights and joy and celebrations in most parts of India. So here is wishing the Atulsongaday followers or Atulites as I like to call the followers a Happy Deepawali and Prosperous New Year. Some parts of the country will be celebrating “Bhai Dooj” or “Bhau Beej” on 9 November. Happy Bhai Dooj too.

The spirit of the festival is such that I found that the blog has been getting one-song-per-day for a few days now. I myself visited the blog after 3 days today. But the festival was not the only reason for my absence, my all-time favourite grudge about Bangalore had also played a part for my absence.

In fact I heard the Vividh Bharati too after quite some days and it was playing all songs of Usha Uthup in the 9:30 p.m. program. On googling I realized that it was Usha Uthup’s birthday on 8 november 2018.

She has turned 71, time has really flown since she was first sang under RD Burman’s baton in the 1971 for “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” and followed it up with “Bombay to Goa” in which she also made an appearance on-screen. She has an unusual voice which is normally not used for the female lead but more for dance numbers. But our legs move automatically to songs sung by her whether it is “one two cha cha cha”; “hari om hari”; “rambha ho”; “doston se pyar kiya”; “pyar karna toh zaroori hai”; or “I love you, kya kushi hai kya hai gham”. I find that the stats page shows that we have “6” songs of Usha on the blog (I could locate only 3). That is surprising considering that many of her songs were popular and still are popular.

The song with this post is another such song. It is from the 1978 released Krishna Shah directed multi star-casted “Shalimar”. The songs were written by Anand Bakshi and music was R. D. Burman’s. Shalimar’s LP contains 10 songs of which 3 were instrumental, one was a multi-version song. we have three songs from the movie on the blog, here is the next. It is a song which is filmed in a dance school where Aruna Irani is shown giving training for “Cha Cha Cha”. There is also a gambling den attached to the school where we see a sardar (Premnath) squandering his wealth, suffering a heart attack and being assisted by Dharamendra. It is from here that the story of the movie begins.

Blog Day : 3760 Post No. : 14732

Surprise! Surprise!! Surprise!!!

Found one more song, very popular in its times? No, even today. Perfect for the category – How come this song was not posted earlier? It is absolutely amazing that after 14730 posts (number of songs posted will be more as has been explained a few times before) we still find popular songs that are yet to make an appearance on the blog. What to do? Bollywood music is an ocean and we are still standing at the shores.

1973 was the year when Amitabh Bachchan tasted success in the form of Zanjeer. Rishi Kapoor made his debut with Bobby. The stars of the previous set were also in their prime and we had successful movies Anamika, Loafer, Daag, Chhupa Rustam, Raja Rani, Jugnu, Loafer, Do Phool, Banarasi Babu etc having their songs in that years Binaca Geetmala Annual List along with songs from Anuraag, Victoria No. 203, Do Chor, Raja Jani, Shehzaada, Shor, Mere Jeewan Saathi, Rampur Ka Laxman, Parichay, Yeh Gulistan Humara, Gora aur Kala which were movies that released in 1972 but whose songs were still popular in ’73 to figure in the “Saalaana List Of BGM”. The top song from that list is already on the blog- Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi (Zanjeer). Songs number 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 are all on the blog how come only song number 2 got left out? Time to rectify the situation- here is song number 2 from the “Saalaana List Of BGM” as Ameen Sayani would call the list.

The song number 2 was written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyarelal were the music directors. It was a favourite (still is I presume) among young love birds who long for privacy. The feeling that no outsider should intrude when one is with one’s beloved as also one doesn’t have to go out when the beloved is around. Does all this sound heavy, literature- kind of stuff. I will simplify it- “Baahar se koi andhar na aa sake, andhar se koi baahar na jaa sake”. Hmm now people understood where I am leading. Isn’t it surprising this song is not yet on the blog.

Raj Kapoor made “Bobby” after the debacle of “Mera Naam Joker”. A voracious reader of “Archie comics” Raj Kapoor thought of a teen-love story which was somewhat in keeping with those times. I remember a scene where Piloo Wadia – friend of the hero’s father- walks into an Irani Restaurant. She is seen by Raj (Rishi Kapoor’s name in the movie) & he rushes into the inner room with his girlfriend, to avoid being caught. He also asks Bobby (Dimple) to keep her feet off the ground as he knows that Piloo Wadia will peep from below the swinging- doors of the room. That is how youngsters used to be back then, possibly this behaviour was more out of respect to the elders or fear of being detected. “Bobby” was successful in bringing Raj Kapoor out of the red and to think that “Bobby” was a standard story of rich boy- poor girl, parents not accepting, lovers running away, and finally parents relent when the lovers threaten dire consequences.

“Bobby” was a departure from all of RK Film’s previous movies on many counts. Laxmikant Pyarelal replaced Shankar Jaikishan as music directors. Anand Bakshi replaced all of Raj Kapoor’s favourite lyricists. Finally, almost all of RK’s films showed the life of the common man with romance being an also-ran but Bobby was all about falling in love, misunderstanding between lovers, making-up etc.

Talking of Laxmikant Pyarelal reminds me today (3 november 2018) is the birth anniversary of Laxmikant- he would have turned 81. His teaming up with Pyarelal Sharma gave Bollywood a huge treasure trove of songs. The statistics page of our blog says that the treasure trove has 2901 songs of which 776 are posted. They hit the right chord with the audience from almost the start of their career as independent composers, having been assistants to Kalyanji Anandji, Sachin Dev Burman etc and even to R D Burman in RD’s debut “Chhote Nawab”. The friendship between RD and L-P was lifelong and RD played the Harmonica for LP’s songs in “Dosti” and Laxmikant made an appearance as himself in “Teri Kasam” which had music by RD.

So, let us remember Laxmikant with this song number 2 of the “Saalaana List Of BGM” or Binaca Geetmala Annual List. It was sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Shailendra Singh.


Song-Ham tum ek kamre mein band hon aur chaabhi kho jaaye(Bobby)(1973) Singers-Shailendra, Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

baahar se koi andar na aa sake
andar se koi baahar na jaa sake
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya hon
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho
hum tum mmmm
ek kamre mein band hon oo
aur chaabhi kho jaaye
hum tum ek kamre mein band hon oo
aur chaabhi kho jaaye
tere nainon ki bhool bhulaiyya mein
bobby kho jaaye
hum tum ek kamre mein band hon
aur chaabhi kho jaaye

aage ho ghanghor andhera
baaba mujhe dar lagta hai
peechhe koi daaku lutera
un
kyun dara rahe ho

aage ho ghanghor andhera
peechhe koi daaku lutera
upar bhi jaana ho mushqil
neeche bhi aana ho mushqil
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho
hum tum
kahin ko jaa rahe hon oo
aur rasta bhool jaayen
o ho
ham tum kahin ko jaa rahe hon
aur rasta bhool jaayen
teri bainyaan ke jhoole mein sainyaan
bobby jhool jaaye

hum tum ek kamre mein band hon
aur chaabhi kho jaaye

aa haa aaa
aa haa aaa
aa aa aaa
aa aa aa aa aa

basti se door
parbat ke peechhe
masti mein choor ghane pedon ke neeche
andekhi anjaani si jagah ho
bas ek hum hon
dooji hawa ho
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho

hum tum
ek jangal se guzren
aur sher aa jaaye
hum tum ek jangal se guzren
aur sher aa jaaye
sher se main kahoon
tumko chhod ke
mujhe kha jaaye
hum tum ek kamre mein band hon
aur chaabhi kho jaaye

aise kyun khoye khoye ho
jaage ho ki soye huye ho

kya hoga kal kis ko khabar hai
thhoda sa mere dil mein yeh darr hai
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho
socho kabhi aisa ho toh kya ho
ham tum
yoonhi hans khel rahe hon
aur aankh bhar aaye
tere sar ki qasam tere gham se
bobby mar jaaye

hum tum ek kamre mein band hon
aur chaabhi kho jaaye
tere nainon ki bhool bhulaiyya mein
bobby kho jaaye

hum tum mmm
hum tum mmmm
ek kamre mein band hon oooo
ek kamre mein band hon ooo
aur chaabhi kho jaaye
aur chaabhi kho jaaye
aur chaabhi kho jaaye
aur chaabhi
kho jaaye
kho jaaye

Blog Day :

Hullo to Atuldom

November 2nd is the birthday of a dear Atulite. A person who is very very important for Atuldom turns a year younger today. Without him there would be a lot of stress and strain on our dear Atulji when it comes to handling all the farmaishes and contributions that we Atulites keep sending and expect instant posting on the blog.

I have met him only once for a few hours and since then have often taken the liberty to pick up the phone and put all kinds of requests -from trying to speed up posts getting to the blog to asking help when my son and daughter visited Delhi. And he has never said a “NO”. Thank you so much Sudhirji. You are a true Dillwala Dilliwala. Wish you a very very Happy Birthday. Hope you have lots of time to be the co-poster of the blog. Hope you are able to find rare and hitherto unheard songs for all our collective listening pleasure. Hope you are able to find songs that rekindle memory of the radio listening days. Hope all your series find appropriate songs and you never run out of Mohd. Rafi songs. 🙂

Incidentally November 2nd also happens to be birthday of another Dilliwaala, viz SRK. SRK- Badshah also goes by the names Rahul, King Khan and occasionally Om Kapoor – I mean Shahrukh Khan. So, he has been around since 1988 entertaining his fans first on television in the serials Circus, Fauji and Dil Dariya and then burst on to the Bollywood firmament with the Hema Malini directed “Dil Aashna Hai” and Raj Kanwar directed “Deewana” which got him the best debutant award in 1993.

And since then he hasn’t looked back winning hearts and awards in his journey of 30 years in the entertainment industry. He has worn the hats of producer, IPL team co-owner, actor with ease and also tried his hand at singing. He has tried portraying villainous, romantic and comic characters with success as also played the lead in movies where he is a hockey coach (Chak De! India) or a person with Asperger Syndrome (My Name Is Khan). He is a complete entertainment package and here is wishing him all the best in life.

It is very difficult to choose a song that will showcase SRK’s energy and SK’s love for music. So, I have selected an SRK song which is one I enjoy and hope Sudhirji also likes. It is from a 21-year-old movie directed by Aziz Mirza- Yes Boss. It had Juhi Chawla and Aditya Pancholi as co-stars for SRK with Ashok Saraf, Johnny Lever, Gulshan Grover and Kashmira Shah in supporting roles. The song is an improvisation of a qawwali (my feeling). It is at a party hosted by Aditya Pancholi who runs an Ad agency and has his roving eye on all the models employed there. Juhi is also a model who is on his radar but SRK has taken it upon himself to shield her and has Johnny Lever and Ashok Saraf assisting him in his mission “shield a drunk Juhi from the BOSS”.

The song was written by Javed Akhtar, Jatin- Lalit were the music directors and Abhijeet Bhattacharya (was his birthday on October 30th, wishing him too although a little late)

Once again a very Happy Birthday to our Sudhirji.


Song-Jaata hai tu kahaan (Yes Boss)(1997) Singer-Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-Jatin Lalit
Chorus

Lyrics

Chak chak
Chaka chakchak
Chak chak

jaata hai tu kahaan

sun pyaare

ruk ja re

duniya ke bade tedhe medhe raaste
khatre hi khatre hain tere vaaste
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

duniya mein aajkal
aisi bhi loot hai
kehne ko pyaar hai
samjho toh jhoothh hai
dekh tu lutne laga
tera haath hai kis ke haathon mein
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

shaa la lalaa
sha la lalalalaa
turururu lalaa
shaa la lalaa
sha la lalalalaa
turururu lalaa

pyar ka karte hain jo shor
dhyaan hai tera jin ki oar
aa main bataaoon kaun hain woh
raat mein daaku din mein chor
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

haath main jodoon tore
padoon main balma tore painyaan
chhod ke tu mohe na ja
karoon main binti more sainyaan
ho sun le mori araj sajanwa
poochhe tohse mora manwa
o jaane waale ye to bata,
jaane waale ye to bata
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

jaane tu jo baat kahoon main ishaaron mein
haan ishaaron mein
bikte hain imaan yahaan baazaaron mein
baazaaron mein
anjaane
tu na jaane
koyi jaal phaila teri raahon mein hai
koyi baat hai jo meri baaton mein hai
tu ye jaan le baaton baaton mein
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan

faisla tujhko aaj karna hai
doob jaana hai ya ubharna hai
uss taraf jhoothh hai dikhaawa hai
iss taraf pyaar ka bulaawa hai
uss taraf laalachi nigaahein hain
iss taraf mere dil ki raahein hain
jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan
sun pyaare
sun pyaare
ruk ja re
hey ruk ja re
duniya ke bade tedhe medhe raaste
khatre hi khatre hain tere vaaste

jaata hai tu kahaan
are re re re jaata hai tu kahaan
re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan
jaata hai tu kahaan

re baaba jaata hai tu kahaan
