Today (5 may 2017) is the 11th death anniversary of Naushad saab. He passed away on the 5th of May 2006.

This is the 9th opportunity for this blog to pay a tribute to Naushad saab on his death anniversary. And yet, though I’ve written tributes for many here, I don’t remember writing one for Naushad saab yet. So here goes.

Naushad saab is not just an absolute legend in the world of HFM, he is somebody whose music I have extremely high regard for.

There are some composers for whom Shakespeare’s words from Julius Caesar “He doth bestride us like a colossus…” would not be inappropriate at all. Naushad saab very comfortably fits in – such was his stature, and such is his contribution, to HFM.

I will not discuss his life or career in great detail here – this is available from other sources. Besides, there are people far more competent than me to discuss this luminary’s life and career. I will, as I usually do, give my own personal take on Naushad saab.

I was a young boy when I first heard of Naushad saab. I used to listen to AIR a lot – and his songs would play very often. Not surprisingly, considering how popular his songs were in their time. And are, to this day.

That was how I first heard of the combination Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad. The announcer would invariably say “geetkaar Shakeel Badayuni” and more often than not, it would be followed by “sangeetkaar – Naushad”.

In those days, mid-70s, I had a totally wrong impression of Naushad saab’s age.

Roughly in my head, I had the following generations:
i) My generation (current) : Rajesh Khanna & co
ii) Previous generation (Gen -1) : Shammi Kapoor, Joy Mukherjee & co
iii) Still earlier generation (Gen -2) : Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar
iv) Still earlier generation (Gen -3) : Naushad, KL Saigal, Pankaj Mallick, Anil Biswas etc

Before that, no generation existed in my mind.

Most of us lived in the current generation or in previous generations upto Gen-2. If anyone in my friends’ circle knew any song of Gen-3, he would be looked at with awe. 🙂

Mind you, this was, say 1975 – and “jab dil hi toot gaya” from Shahjehan (1946) was hardly 30 years earlier.
Yet, in our schoolboy minds, that was ancient!

Today, that would be the equivalent of considering “chandni, meri chandi” as ancient. 🙂
See how things are relative!

Anyway, back to Naushad saab. I think his tagging as Gen-3 came from listening to songs like “Awaaz de kahaan hai” in the voices of Noor Jehan and Surendra. Or “akhiyan milaake” by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. These type of songs would play fairly regularly – and somehow got me to get a wrong impression of Naushad saab’s age.

In fact, to be honest, I thought he was long dead. I did not remember him composing – though he might have composed for the odd film that I was not aware of. Unlike an SD Burman who I remember was active (as much as he could be) till he passed away in 1975. So for us at the time, SD Burman was “current”, Naushad was “ancient”. Now when I check, I find that SD Burman was born in 1906, Naushad in Dec 1919. So, a full thirteen years later. 🙂

What misconceptions the mind comes up with!

It was only when I happened to come across a Naushad interview (sometime probably in the late 70s/early 80s), that I even knew that he was alive. I know it sounds naïve – but those were days when I had very limited awareness of such matters. I didn’t grow up with a lot of aware people around me – almost all my knowledge came from watching movies, listening to songs and the odd article. Naushad saab wasn’t very much in the public eye in the 70s. I think it was deliberate – he had sort of mentally retired too by the end of the 60s.

And yet, his songs would play every single day. With the treasure-house that he composed, that’s only to be expected. Songs from Andaaz, Baiju Bawra, Mughal-e-Azam and Ganga Jamuna were hot favourites on AIR, but also songs from Babul, Amar and the 1960s films like Leader, Saathi and Aadmi. So he was a fixture on AIR.

I always loved his music. I couldn’t then place what exactly made me love it – later I realized it must have been the classical tunes he composed that were so soothing and pleasant to the ear. Not one false tuning, not one jarring note. And mind you, this was all in the time when composers didn’t have all the paraphernalia to correct their work. They had a few instruments – and they usually had to get it right first time, or within very few attempts. Just this itself makes me respect composers of that time so much more.

With this limited support, they delivered such fabulous music. And Naushad saad was at the forefront of it.

I do not know of any Naushad saab song that I find jarring. Or that I do not like. The classical ones (like “aaj gaawat man”) are obviously in a league of their own but even the less classical or non-classical ones are pleasant to listen to. Such was Naushad saab’s sense of music.

Today, when I think of his songs, I feel an enormous sense of gratitude towards him. The songs keep playing in my head – my childhood favourites from Andaaz (oh, how I love ALL the songs of this film!), then the two biggies from Anmol Ghadi (“awaaz de” and “jawaan hai mohabbat”), the songs of Baiju Bawra, Ganga Jamuna, Uran Khatola (“o door ke musafir”)….what can I say!

There was this “natural” sense in Naushad saab’s music which fitted perfectly with the occasion for every song he composed. When Dilip Kumar danced to Rafisaab’s rendition of “nain lad jayee hai”, the song looks just so perfect – but there’s Naushad saab (and of course Shakeel too) very much behind this gem. In fact, all songs of Ganga Jamuna are gems – hard to pick one. How can you ignore songs like “dhoondho dhoondho re saajna” or “do hanson ka joda”?

Many of the films for which Naushad saab composed music went on to become Silver Jubilee hits. How much of this is attributable to his music, cannot be gauged but I won’t be surprised if the music played a big part in the success of these films. For example, Baiju Bawra, without its songs, is hard to imagine.

So thank you, Naushad saab, for leaving us with this invaluable treasure for eternity.

Today’s song is from, what I’d like to call, post-retirement Naushad saab. By the end of the 1960s, Naushad saab felt that the changing scene of HFM was not to his liking. Music was becoming loud and too westernized for his taste. Many of his contemporaries were also struggling to deal with this change. So Naushad saab quietly withdrew from the scene. He might have composed for just the odd film (maybe finishing his assignments) but otherwise, he had “retired”.

The 1970s were therefore left to, and dominated by, the likes of RD Burman, L-P and Kalyanji Anandji.

And then, Naushad saab made a comeback in the early 80s with a film called Dharam Kaanta. I remember this was much talked about mainly (possibly only) because of Naushad saab’s comeback.

The film was a multi-starrer – but didn’t quite click. Naushad saab’s music also didn’t quite make the impact it was expected to make – although the song “ye gotedaar lehenga” was quite popular.

All in all, it was probably just a confirmation to Naushad saab that the times had truly changed. That was the disco era – Naushad saab would have felt very out of place. But like Tennyson said “the old order changeth, yielding place to new”. That was the last I remember of Naushad saab’s music, though his bio suggests he did compose a bit more.

The song is picturised on Jeetendra and Rajesh Khanna. The voices are of Rafisaab and Bhupendra. It is quite odd to watch Bhupendra sing for Rajesh – this is the first time I’m seeing this. It left me wondering why Kishore didn’t do the job – but maybe Naushad saab wanted to have Bhupendra there, instead of Kishore. Any story here about Naushad saab & Kishore?

The lyrics for this song were sent to me by Peevisie’s Mom. She has done the write-up for the one other song from this film posted on this blog already – “ye gotedaar lehenga”.

One memory of this film.

I saw this in Kolkata in a film hall in 1982. I happened to be in town with some friends, we went for this late-night (9-12) show. I don’t remember the film too well but when I returned to my hotel room, I discovered the backpocket of my trousers had been slit – I had been pickpocketed. I must have had about Rs 150 or so in it, so not a huge sum – though in those days, this was a respectable sum.

But what made me feel worse was that the trousers were brand new – they were very expensive Vimal suiting material and I was wearing it for the first time. I got it stitched again but it didn’t look good – and I never wore those trousers again.

That was also the last time I kept any money in my backpocket. Lesson learnt.

So that is my memory of Dharam Kaanta (1982).

I’ll leave you with the song – I hope you enjoy it. It is in the cadre of “ye dosti, hum nahin chhodenge”. I will leave it to you to judge whether the music is reminiscent of Naushad’s earlier tunes. I could feel it here and there, though I think Naushad saab tried to make it a bit modern too.

The video doesn’t cover the complete song, so an audio is also provided here (courtesy Peevesie’s Mom).

Yesterday (27 april 2017), sometime around noon, I got to hear the very sad news that Vinod Khanna had passed away.
I had logged onto Twitter for a bit – and immediately saw a tweet saying “One of the most handsome actors of Hindi movies. RIP”. My heart sank. Soon it was clear that the person being discussed, and now trending as a hashtag, was our own beloved Vinod Khanna.

Recently a picture of Vinod Khanna had been circulating on social media. It shocked many (including myself) as it showed him in a very frail condition. I, for one, was not even aware that he was ailing. But nowadays, with advances in medical science, you tend to expect recovery, especially for someone barely 70.

It was not to be.

The end was therefore unexpected for me – and I think, for many.

All day today, my thoughts have been with Vinod Khanna. He was “my generation” and therefore the memories were even stronger. Much like the memories that came streaming into my mind when Rajesh Khanna passed away a few years ago.

Just to clarify, when I say “my generation”, I don’t mean he was my age. I consider the 1970s “my generation”, because that is the decade of my childhood, when I have most memories of watching, and being aware of, films. After that, especially approaching the mid-80s, it wasn’t quite the same – so I don’t consider films after, say 1982, as “my generation”. I know it’s arbitrary, but that’s how I see it.

Vinod Khanna was bang in “my generation”. Sure, he acted well after that too, but his rise in films, and his popularity, happened in the 1970s and continued later.

Vinod Khanna. Have we seen a more handsome actor in the last 40 years? Women swooned over him – and understandably. When he was a villain in his early career, however mean his role was, you really didn’t want him to be beaten up by the hero. He was too good-looking for that. 🙂

My first distinct memories of Vinod Khanna are probably associated with Mere Apne (1971). I distinctly remember seeing this film as a kid – it was a very different sort of film, with Vinod Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha the main characters, and Meena Kumari in a very different role. The song “koi hota, jisko apna”, picturised on Vinod, became very popular.

Those were the days of the Rajesh Khanna tsunami. Many newcomers joined the industry aspiring to be the next big hero. Anil Dhawan, Navin Nischol, Kabir Bedi, Amitabh Bachchan, Vijay Arora, Rakesh Pandey and many more.

The scene was crowded – the likes of Vinod Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha went the “villain” route to make a connect with the audience. They were popular villains too, but when they got lead roles and the crowd happily accepted them, they made the switch.

I remember seeing many of Vinod Khanna’s films at the time when he acted “villain” roles – Aan Milo Sajna, Purab aur Paschim, the fantastic Mera Gaon Mera Desh and Ek Bechara, to name just a few.

I also remember seeing films like “Hum Tum Aur Woh”, where he was cast opposite South Indian actress, Bharathi. Then there were other films like Kache Dhaage, Gaddaar and Aap Ke Khaatir, the last of these best-known for the hugely popular “Bambai se aaya mera dost”.

At that time, being a young teenager, I was much impressed by “Imtihaan”, a film about a teacher and his experiences in a school. The song “ruk jaana nahin, tu kahin haar ke” was not only very popular, it was very inspirational and motivational for many, including myself, at the time.

Then there was another film “Inkaar” which I saw at that time, and really liked. It was one of those James Hadley Chase type stories – I need to rewatch it.

I remember, sometime around 1978, Filmfare magazine had, as its cover story, the top three heroes of the time. No.1 was obviously Amitabh Bachchan, No. 2 was Dharam but at no.3, surprisingly for me, was Vinod Khanna. Not Shashi Kapoor or Jeetendra or Rishi Kapoor or even the redoubtable Sanjeev Kumar, but Vinod Khanna. (At that time, they also had Hema, Zeenat and Parveen as the top three heroines).

I don’t know what their criteria was – and this isn’t intended to compare actors – but my point is, Vinod was one of those stars whose star value was not always self-evident.

The late 70s were the days of the multi-starrer – and Vinod had his fair share of them. Hera Pheri, Amar Akbar Anthony, Khoon Pasina, Parvarish, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, The Burning Train, Qurbani – all big films of the time, featuring Vinod Khanna.

There was also a Vinod solo – Lahu Ke Do Rang, with the popular “chaahiye thoda pyaar”. I think this film did well at the box-office. I remember I quite liked it.

And then, suddenly (at least to me it was sudden), Vinod quit films. To join Osho. He was right on top of his game at the time – but for some reason, he chose to take that step.

Anyway, he was back after a few years for his second innings. During this period he had films like Dayavan and Chandni, both making an impact on the audience, even if he shared screen space with Feroze Khan in Dayavan, and was not the male lead in Chandni.

I sort of lost track after that – though I did see him in Jurm (1990), looking every bit as handsome as he’d looked 15 years earlier.

The most recent film of his that I happened to watch was Dabangg – that was in 2010. He acted even after that – most recently in Dilwale (2015) but I haven’t seen any of his films after Dabangg.

So a career that started with Man Ka Meet (1968) went on for almost 50 years!

And oh, before I forget to mention it, Vinod Khanna was more than just an actor. He joined politics in the late 90s and won elections from Gurdaspur. As far as I know, unlike many film stars who joined politics and failed to connect with their constituencies, Vinod Khanna was actually popular in the Gurdaspur constituency.

So, all in all, quite a life, quite a career. His family would be proud of him.

As I reflect on his career today, I can only thank him for giving me these memories. And since he was “my generation”, that makes it even more special for me.

Coming to the song for today.

Late in the evening, I got this wish to write on the blog for Vinod Khanna. I checked for a few songs I had in mind – they were all already in there. Then, to my surprise, I noticed that this song, which was quite popular in its time, was still not on the blog.

I quickly contacted Atul to inform him that I planned to do a write-up and would it be ok if I used this song. I wanted to be sure it wouldn’t clash with any other planned post. He said “go ahead”.

So here is “meri dushman hai ye”, probably better known as “ye khidki jo band rehti hai” from Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki (1978).

This film, best-known for getting two yesteryear biggies, Asha Parekh and Nutan, to act together was a big hit, as far as I remember. The title song was extremely popular at the time.

I last saw the film ages ago, sometime in the late 70s. It was a film revolving around Asha Parekh, who Vijay Anand is in love with, and Nutan who he is married to. Vinod Khanna is Vijay Anand’s son from Asha Parekh but is brought up with great love by Nutan. This causes resentment for Deb Mukherjee, Nutan’s own son, especially when he gets to know that Vinod Khanna is not even Nutan’s own son. After some misunderstandings, where Vinod Khanna typically plays big brother-shielding-younger-brother, all ends well.

The song is sung by Rafisaab, with lyrics by Anand Bakshi and music by L-P. I remembered this picturised on Vinod Khanna, so I went looking for it today, but I myself hadn’t heard it in a while.

So, while presenting it here on the blog, I just want to remember Vinod Khanna again.

Go well, Sir – and rest in peace.


Song-Ye khidki jo band rahti hai (Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki)(1978) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Meri dushman hai ye
Meri uljhan hai ye
Bada tadpaati hai
Dil tarsaati hai
Ye khidki khidki
Ye khidki
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai
Meri dushman hai ye
Meri uljhan hai ye
Bada tadpaati hai
Dil tarsaati hai
Ye khidki khidki
Ye khidki
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai

Lagta hai mela na jaane kahaan
Aashiq jawaan hote hain yahaan
Arrey sabko pataa hai ye daastaan
Is ghar mein hai ek ladki jawaan
Aankhen jhuka ke guzro is gali se
Aane jaane waalon se kehti hai
Ye khidki
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai

Gham ki ghata hai
ye chhant jaayegi
Aahon se deewaar phhat jaayegi
Jab saamne se ye hat jaayegi
Ghoonghat mein gori simat jaayegi
ik roz khul jaayegi toot ke ye
Kitni nazron ke teer sehti hai
Ye khidki
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai

Aaye kabhi chaubaare mein wo
Kuchh soche mere baare mein wo
Arrey baatein kare do ishaaron mein wo o
Chup se khadi hai us kinaare mein wo
Us paar wo hai
Aur is paar main hoon
Nadiya beech mein behti hai
Ye khidki
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai
Ye khidki jo band rehti hai

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1
——————————————————————–

On this blog, one thing we enjoy is, celebrations.  🙂

We are always looking for an opportunity to celebrate – and every other day, we get a reason to do so. Often it is somebody’s birthday or birth anniversary, or a milestone of a 100th or 1000th song for an artiste, or for the blog. And even if it is a death anniversary, which is not really a cause for celebration, we use the occasion to pay tribute to the concerned artiste. Many of my own posts fall in this category. An occasion gives me an opportunity to reminisce and share my thoughts.

After yet another fairly long absence from the blog, I am back here with this post.

As I said in my previous post, this absence has purely to do with my tendency sometimes to withdraw from social contact and go into a shell. It is a phase I go through and has absolutely nothing to do with any specific individual or group.

Least of all, this blog.

It’s been a while since my last post here.  And to be absolutely honest, I haven’t even been active on the blog recently.

This is for a variety of reasons, none of which is, thankfully, any cause of worry. I go into this shell from time to time. I hope Atul, and my other friends here, know me long enough now to not mind my absence. It is nothing to do with the blog or with them, it is just me and my bizarre-ness. Anyway, it doesn’t matter – what matters is that I’m back here today.

But why today? What’s so special about today? Well, today is special, not just for one, but for two reasons. Firstly, the 8th of March is celebrated worldwide as International Women’s Day. Secondly, it also happens to be the birthday of Sahir Ludhianvi, one of our most celebrated poets and lyricists.  And most people who know me on this blog know what a special place Sahir has in my heart.  I have often posted his songs here, especially on his birth and death anniversaries. I feel that’s the least I can do for him.

Today, the 8th of March, is a very special day for some of us.

No, it’s not because it is International Women’s Day. Well, that too, but also because it is the birthday of somebody associated with the Hindi film industry who is very close to us.

Yes, I’m talking about Sahir Ludhianvi. Sahir Sb would have been 96 today had he been alive.

The last two weeks of December are usually relatively busy weeks for me. I say “relatively” only in the context of the rest of the year for me, which is reasonably relaxed. My generally lazy nature gets a thorough jolt and wake-up call, in these last two weeks.

Another day, another milestone! Only the other day we were celebrating Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And now we have another milestone.

Some might say, this blog is beginning to deliver milestones like Virat Kohli or Ravichandran Ashwin do. 🙂
But who’s complaining? I, most certainly, am not! 🙂

As I write out this post today, I have strong emotions attached to it.

It is a huge honour for me to write this post. I have to thank Atul for giving me the opportunity to do so.

Just a few days ago, Atul sent me an e-mail asking me if I could do a write-up for Kishore Kumar’s 1000th song on this blog. And of course, I immediately mailed back “Sure”. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity – it is indeed a very special occasion and a huge honour for me.

Ok, I’ve got a new favourite song now.

It is a measure of my still very limited knowledge of songs, in comparison to the vast ocean out there, that I still keep discovering songs that I fall in love with.
