Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Usually one chooses songs full of happiness and celebration for these types of occasions to celebrate, but as usual, I choose this haunting song, to celebrate. 🙂

The song is from the 1983 film ‘Sansani – The Sensation’. I have watched this movie one late night for the sake of this haunting song by Asha Bhosle. The movie was just a masala / murder mystery, where at the end the noble characters like Dr. Shriram Lagoo and Jayashree Gadkar turn out to be characters with grey shades. If you are a die-hard fan of Hindi movies of  70`s and early 80`s like me, you may enjoy this  pot-boiler, but watch the movie at your own risk. 🙂

But listen to this song, you may like it audio-wise.

This is an obscure mystery movie produced by Kavita Seth, who is also billed in the credits as “KAVITA – Introducing” as an actress. She is one of the principal lady characters in the movie. She appears wearing a white saree, roaming in the graveyards, and crying for her beloved Shailendra Singh (the playback singer, who got billing as “Friendly Appearance”). Shailendra Singh appears only at the climax, and also in a photograph in front of which the actress cries and sings this haunting song. But he did not get a playback singing chance, which is his original forte.

There is some confusion about the year of release of this movie, LP image of this movie shows the year 1979, censor certificate clearly shows the date 23-6-1983. According to HFGK-6, 1983 is the release of this movie.

The movie was “Dedicated to Late Director Irshad Afzal”, (I guess before the release of the movie the director must have passed away). The movie was produced under the banner of Panorama Pictures. The producer of the movie is Kavita Seth, who also makes her acting debut with this movie. The director’s name is mentioned differently in different sites as Irshad / Irshad Afzal / A Irshad.

The star cast of the movie includes Vinod mehra, Bindiya Goswami, Prem Chopra, Dr Shriram Lagoo, Shailendra Singh (Special Appearance), Kavita (Introducing), Jagdeep, Jayashree T, Jayashree Gadkar, Keshto Mukherjee, Jagdish Raj, Coca Cola, TP Jain, Ali Masood, Nilima, Meena T, Raj Kishore, Amal Sen, M Baig, Amarnath, Dutta Bhatt, Viraj, Gopal, Dina Pathak, Gulshan Grover, Viju Khote etc.

Songs of this film are written by Irshad (who was also the director). Music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. It has been mentioned in the credit sequences of the movie that the assistants to music director are Kersi Lord and Uttam Singh. These two genius composers cum arrangers also contributed to the musical score of this movie to a great extent. Kersi Lord has also done a lot of work with RD Burman.

The musical compositions of the movie are sung by playback singers like Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Bhupender, Varsha Bhosle, and Hemant Bhosle. This movies has got following sound tracks

  1. Asha Bhosle : Phir Teri Yaad
  2. Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Bhupinder & Varsha Bhosle : Patthar Ka Hai Sanam
  3. Asha Bhosle, Hemant Bhosle & Chorus : Sansanikhez Koi Baat
  4. Asha Bhosle, Varsha Bhosle : Saqiya Tu Koi
  5. Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar : Ab Kahaan Jayenge Hum (Happy)
  6. Amit Kumar : Ab Kahaan Jayenge Hum (Sad)
  7. Hemant Bhosle : Theme music

Records of the movie were issued by The Gramophone Company of India Ltd. (aka His Master`s Voice). The movie was shot at outdoor locations of Madras, Bangalore, and Tamilnadu.

On screen this song has been divided into 3 parts. The first stanza features Dina Pathak, Shailendra Singh (i.e. appears in a photograph) and Kavita Seth aka Kavita . The 2nd stanza features Kavita Seth, Dr.Sriram Lagoo, and Vinod Mehra. And the 3rd stanza features Kavita Seth, Vinod Mehra and Jayashree Gadkar.

About the Music Director: Hemant Bhosle is the late son of Asha Bhosle. He passed away on September 28th of 2015. I like his musical compositions of the songs of ‘Taxi Taxie’ (1977). Given below is an incomplete filmography for him. If at all any additions or deletions are there in this regard, please let me know.

  • Taxi-Taxie (Polydor-1977)
  • Jadu Tona (Polydor-1977)
  • Anpadh (Polydor-1978)
  • Damaad (Polydor-1978)
  • Sansani (HMV-1980/Irshad)
  • Sweety (Music India-1980)
  • Nazrana Pyar Ka (Polydor-1980)
  • Shradhanjali (HMV-1981/Anjan)
  • Barrister (HMV-1982/Yogesh)
  • Teri Meri Kahani (TV Movie 1982/Anjaan,B.R.Chopra)
  • Doosra Kinara (1982)
  • Beta (1982/HMV/Anjaan)
  • Bandhan Kachchey Dhaagon Ka (HMV-1983)
  • Raja Jogi (1983)
  • Bachchon Ka Khel (1983/Gulshan Bawra)
  • Dharti Akash (TV Movie 1983)
  • Dharam Shatru (T-series,Super-1985/1988)
  • Bhaago Bhoot Aaya (1985)
  • Aakhiri Sanghursh (1987/1997)

Hemant Bhosle also provided music for some Marathi songs.

About the Lyricist Irshad:  I searched for lyricist Irshad`s other works, but got confused with Irshad who has connection with the Kishore Kumar camp, and has written songs for films such as ‘Door Ka Rahi’ (1971 – which has the famous song “Beqaraar Dil, Tu Gaaye Jaa”), ‘Badhti Ka Naam Dhadi’ (1974) ‘Shabaash Daddy’ (1978) and ‘Chalti Ka Naam Zindagi’ (1982). Irshad also written songs for other movies like ‘Naag Pooja’ (1971), ‘Pattharon Ka Shaher’ (1972) – both for Usha Khanna. Also for ‘Alibaba’ (1976) – Dara Singh starrer with Hansraj Behl as the music director.

I got further confused when I watched the movie credit sequences which displays the photo with garland and agarbatti and lines like “Dedicated to our beloved director – Irshad Afzal”, and further in the credits – “Lyrics, written and directed by IRSHAD”.

I doubt whether all the above Irshads are one and the same. I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help clarify this possible ‘same name confusion’.

One of the comments related to the song in some site is as follows: “Phir Teri Yaad” is a completely mental slice of Indian psych/funk”. I failed to understand this comment, I request someone to please elaborate about this comment.

I will conclude my endless banter here 🙂

Congratulations and best wishes to our blog on its MEGA CELEBRATION. I love everything and everyone related to our blog. Visiting and reading the blog posts gives me immense joy.

फिर तेरी याद आ गयी
ग़म की घटा॰॰ छा गयी
रातों की
वीरानी
हमको॰॰
रुला गयी
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी
ग़म की घटा॰॰ छा गयी
रातों की
वीरानी
हमको॰॰
रुला गयी
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी॰ ॰ ॰

कभी गुज़र हो
बहार का अब
तो दिल के ज़ख्मों को
छूके गुज़रेगी
कोई जो आये
फुहार की रुत
तो बादलों से
भी आग बरसेगी
तेरे बिना अब
मेरे हमदम
है मौत ज़िन्दगी
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी
ग़म की घटा॰॰ छा गयी
रातों की
वीरानी
हमको॰॰
रुला गयी
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी॰ ॰ ॰

हैं ज़िंदा लाशें
ये दिल के अरमान
तेरे ही ग़म के
खफन में हैं लिपटे
जनाज़ा उठने
को है तू आ जा
सफर आखिरी
तो कर ले तय मिलके
वरना ये
रूह प्यासी
प्यासी ही रह जायेगी
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी
ग़म की घटा॰॰ छा गयी
रातों की
वीरानी
हमको॰॰
रुला गयी
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी॰ ॰ ॰

चिराग ए दिल भी
है बुझने को अब
पनप रहे हैं
अंधेरों के साये
सुलग रही हैं
तड़पती सांसें
मसीहा बन के
कोई तो आ जाए
शोला है
हर धड़कन
ग़म की चिताओं की
फिर तेरी याद आ गयी
ग़म की घटा॰॰ छा गयी
रातों की
वीरानी
हमको॰॰
रुला गयी

फिर तेरी याद आ गयी
ग़म की घटा॰॰ छा गयी

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 8
———————————————————————

I started to write this post, because of my fascination (or is it obsession?) about the music of this movie. Finally for the anniversary occasion, I thought, let me write about this movie, “koi toh kissi din is film ke gaane ke baare mein  likhega, main hi kyon na likh daloon???” 🙂 .Ye soch ke and also for the reason that I love the Raj Khosla type of narrative and his song picturization style.

Let me talk a little about the style of song picturization by Raj Khosla which I like very much. Remember the songs of ‘Mera Saaya’, ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, ‘Chiraag’, ‘Kuchche Dhaage’, ‘Do Raaste’, ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’, ‘Anita’, . . . I can go on and on about his style of direction and his song picturisation style. I will stop about that.

The songs of this film are written by Farooq Kaiser (06.06.1918 to 10.11.1987). He was one of the dominating forces of music in Indian Cinema during the 1950s through the 1980s. He contributed to more than 115 movies and 390 songs. His name is spelt in many different ways like Faruq Kaisar, Farooq Kaiser, Faruk Kaiser etc.

Besides being a songwriter, he worked as chief assistant director with Raj khosla in ‘Prem Kahaani’ and ‘Kuchhe Dhaage’. He also worked with Lekh Tondon in ‘Prince’ (Shammi Kapoor starrer) and ‘Lal Patthar’. He worked in Hindi movies in the capacities of lyricist, dialogue and screenplay writer, production manager, associate director, second unit director or assistant director or chief assistant director.

Today’s film ‘Naqaab’ (1989) is nothing but a modern version of Raj Khosla own potboiler ‘Woh Kaun Thi’, but in this, we have no beautiful Sadhana in double role or haunting black and white camera work or Lata ji`s haunting vocal chords or Madan Mohan`s music compositions. But in this movie we have a new name Kamaal makhdoom, as the music director. Some other movies for which he provided music are – ‘Pavitra Ganga’ (1984), ‘Bhatke Raahi’ (1984), ‘Teri Aarzoo’ (1986), and maybe more.

In ‘Naqaab’, the very musical Raj Khosla entrusted a humble music teacher Kamaal Makhdoom, rather than his favourites Laxmikant Pyarelal with the music score due to severe budgetary constraints. When she heard the songs, Asha told Khosla, ‘If you promote this music well, it will be another Umrao Jaan.’ Tragically, several (political) reasons ensured that this exquisite score never even got normal publicity; the film’s failure did the rest. Those lucky enough to have heard the music cherish “Na kisika dil mujhe chahiye”, “Naina lad gaye” (with Suresh Wadkar), and the title song as treasured memories that sound as fresh almost 30 years later.))

A brief about the music director. Kamaal Makhdoom was born in Hyderabad (India) in 1950. He learnt classical music for 5 years in Hyderabad. He came to Mumbai in 1973 and he worked as an assistant with top music directors at that time, like Sham ji Ghansham Ji and Lala Sattar for more than 10 years. After that he got first chance as an independent music director in the film ‘Pavitra Ganaga’ in 1982. In the same year he did his 2nd independent film ‘Bhatke Rahi’. After that successful year he worked in many average Hindi films but ultimately he got a big break in 1986, with Raj Khosla’s ‘Naqaab’ which had Rishi Kapoor, Farah, Amjad Khan etc. After this film, he did many Hindi movies, Tele films, Music Albums and TV serials etc.

Those days, (i.e. late 1980s – early 90`s), in a certain magazine article, I remember reading Asha Bhosle crying foul about Gulshan Kumar`s dumping her songs of Naqab, saying that the T-series had sabotaged the musical compositions of the movie. Raj Khosla who was in need of money for the release of his movie very badly, sold the musical rights of the movie to T-series. And allegedly, Gulshan Kumar purposefully did not market the songs of this movie because of Anuradha Paudhwal`s rivalry towards Mangeshkar sisters. That marketing technique sealed the fate of the music of this film. I remember Gulshan Kumar did the same thing for Shashi Kapoor`s home production ‘Ajooba’ because Laxmi-Pyaare did not used Anuradha paudhwal voice for the movie. Sad state of things, but that’s how it is.

‘Naqab’ is Raj Khosla`s last directorial venture. He tried to get his his friend Vinod Khanna for the lead role, but for some reasons, the lead role went to Rishi Kapoor. Farha emoted well and she has been photographed very beautifully. The handsome Vijayendra Ghatge played the villain`s role and Amjad Khan with his huge structure and histrionics acted well. The old timer Chand Usmani is also in the star cast. She is there in the Raj Khosla camp, from the days of Raj Khosla`s ‘Anita’ days. Bindu to whom Raj Khola gave a fresh lease of life in ‘Do Raaste’ as Neelambari, acted in a role with grey shades. Old timer Mohan Choti is there in a small role.

The main chunk of the musical compositions are rendered by Asha Bhosle and the male counterpart is the ever dependable Suresh Wadkar, one of my favourites. Actually I don`t like qawwali songs, but in this movie I liked the qawwali song sung by Majid Shola which was also picturised on him.

That brings me to the close of this post. To be frank, I am very bad about writing the things, mainly because of my lack of communication skills and I get confused regarding where to start and where to end while writing the post, And of course there is my own nagging doubt about my  English writing skills. 🙂

Finally, I want to thank Atul ji and Sudhir ji for bearing my occasional outbursts, impulsive reactions, harsh comments (sometimes I myself, find them too harsh, really). I wonder sometimes, agar main Atul ji or Sudhir ji ke jagah hota aur apni khud ki lines padh ke meri reaction kya hotaa!  But then, main apne aap ko tasalli bhi de detaa hoon ye soch ke “O.K., Atul ji and Sudhir ji apne hi hain aur mera temperament woh jaante hi honge aur blog bhi mera apna hi toh hai, mujhe woh log adjust kar lenge” 🙂 🙂 Atul ji, Sudhir ji, sunn rahe hain na aap log. . . 🙂

I present the song “Jaan e Mann, Jaan e Wafa” today, which is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. I hope you will like it.

Song – Jaan e Mann Jaan e Wafa, Aa Ke Parda To Utha (Naqaab) (1989) Singers – Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics – Farooq Kaiser, MD – Kamaal Makhdoom

Lyrics

aaaaaa aa aaa
aaa aaaa aaa aa

jaan e mann jaan e wafa

jaan e mann jaan e wafa
aa ke parda to utha
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa
aake parda to utha
zindagi kuchh bhi nahin hai tere jalwaon ke siva
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa

har kadam chhaaya dhuaan
har taraf raaz yahaan
kya karoon kaun sune
meri aawaz yahaan
tu bhi gumnaam hai..ae
tu bhi gumnaam hai
kis naam se doon tujhko sadaa
jaan e mann jaan e wafa
aa ke parda to utha
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa

meethi meethi hai kasak
jism se rooh talak
meharbaani ho teri
dekh loon ek jhalak
dil se aawaaz jo..oo
dil se aawaaz jo
nikley wohi hoti hai duaa
jaan e mann jaan e wafa
aa ke parda to utha
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa

raah takti hoon teri
aankhen pyaasi hain meri
ab to aa jaaye nazar
wo nazar pyaar bhari
meraa imaan hai..ae
meraa imaan hai
ek din tujhe bhejega khuda
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa
aake parda to utha
zindagi kuchh bhi nahin hai tere jalwaon ke siva
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa
jaan e mann jaan e wafaa

Atul Song-A-Day 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I fondly remember my radio playing this song during the afternoons of my summer vacations (in our old rented house, and in the morning Radio farmaish programmes and during the late night, 11`clock Mumbai Vividh bharati programme “Bela ke phool”. This song belongs to my growing years; therefore I do have many fond memories of this song . Though it was not that badly picturised, the listening pleasure is more than that of watching it. If one hears this duet, in my personal opinion, it does have soothing effect on listeners.
