ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 9
———————————————————————

My last post on our blog has been sometime back. I have been meaning to write about this song which has a couple of rare occurrences in the Hindi Film and Music world and was waiting for an opportune moment.

Recently, I have been fighting my own battles on my health front, having been hospitalised for surgical and advanced interventional pain management procedures, more than a couple of times in the last one year. I have diabetes, which is under control, however it has caused neuropathy in both my feet causing severe pain with tingling and burning sensations. I would like to take this opportunity to create awareness amongst all the readers of this blog that diabetes can be very dangerous and draining and that one should take care of their feet. One’s feet bear the entire weight of one’s body but always fail to get the attention and good care, as with other parts of the body.

Well, coming back to today’s post. Late last month, we, the regular (and irregular) contributors of this blog were told by our beloved SudhirJi, that the blog was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its creation and that song posts were expected from all the contributors. However, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t stick up to the deadline of sending in our contributions. However, Sudhir Ji would not relent and sent me another request to send in my post. This made me very embarrassed and I made a promise to myself that come what may, I will write my post and send it today, three days after my second extended deadline.

My association with this blog actually started around two years after I started my Facebook group – Rare Hindi Film Songs in 2010. In searching for old and rare songs to post, I would often visit the blog and later I came to know that even Atul Ji, the creator of this blog was a member and a regular visitor of my group. However, it took me almost 4 years to write my first post – for the song “Chup Chup Chup Kyon Baithe Ho” – and send it to Atul Ji for moderation and posting. Since then, I have been sending in my posts in bursts, start and stop.

Till date I have just posted about 20 odd songs, but I feel so much drawn to the Atulites group that I feel I have come to my home group amongst these various people across the world, who share similar passion and views. In particular, Avinash Ji and Sudhir Ji seem to like my kind of songs from movies of the 70s and early eighties, not that others are not encouraging.

My heartiest congratulations to Atul Ji, ASAD, Atulites and all the people who love HFM, on the 10th anniversary of this endeavour !!!

Now coming to today’s song. As I have mentioned above, this is a special song for me as it has a few rare characteristics associated with it, in the HFM world and also since it is quite a rare song. It is from the Pran, Navin Nischol and Rekha starrer ‘Dharma’ released in 1973. Two other songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog. For those who haven’t seen the movie or have forgotten it, the plot summary can be read here on IMDB.

Now, coming to this song with ‘Two Rare Occurrences’ for a Hindi movie!

It is an almost eight minute long song, starting with a straight cut and paste of the song “Aur Mera Naam Hai Jameela” sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the 1967 film ‘Night in London’ (composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and penned by Anand Bakshi). In both the films, Helen is the dancer performing this song on screen. But of course, the choreography is different in the two films. In this clip from ‘Dharma’, only one stanza of the original song from ‘Night In London’ is included and it is about 2 minutes in duration. Well this is one rare thing.

The second and most important rare thing about this song is that after Helen’s initial lip syncing to this cut-paste song, the actual song, sung by Asha Bhosle, is lip synced by four of the best cabaret dancers of that era. Of course after the Numero Uno – Helen – who’s in the first part. The subsequent segments are performed by Faryal, Sonia Sahani, Jayashree T and Bindu.

The video opens with Helen beginning the dance with some male dancers. The music has already begun. We can also see Ramesh Deo with Asit Sen, who is watching the dance wide-eyed and lecherously. They go to another dance bar and Faryal starts her part followed by Sonia Sahni performing in the third bar. In the fourth bar, Jayashree T is performing bhangra. In the last bar, they do drugs with drinks while Bindu is performing. In this film, Madan Puri and Ramesh Deo are together shown to cheat rich men by taking them to clubs and tempting them with wine and women. The song shows Seth Garib Das (Asit Sen) is being trapped by them and this cabaret number is organized for him.

I hope all of you like the interesting facts of this song as well as the song. Please comment.


Song – Arey Saaqi Jo Kal Ki Hai Bachi Baaki (Dharma) (1973) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Omi, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Sonik-Omi

Lyrics

yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

har ek dil ko dhadakne ki aadat huyi
main jis gali se bhi guzri qayamat huyi
log nazren bichaane lage
log nazren bichaane lage
haal dil ka sunaane lage
yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
utha parda
dekh jalwa
ke sheeshe mein
jawani ab utar jaaye
arey saaqi

rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
aa
rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
soyi hui jawani ko
tu chhoo ke zara jaga ja
meri nigahein, aadayen ye baahein bulaayen

dum mein dum hai to dum laga
duniya kya hai nasha hi nasha
aasmaan ke baadal to
kuchh bhi nahin
mazaa to tab hai ke
zameen pe baadal bana
mere humdum
raat hai kam
ke baaton mein
ye saari
raat na jaaye
mere humdum. . .

यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

हर एक दिल को धड़कने की आदत हुई
मैं जिस गली से भी गुज़री क़यामत हुई
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
हाल दिल का सुनाने लगे
यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
उठा पर्दा
देख जलवा
के शीशे में
जवानी अब उतार जाये
अरे साक़ी

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा
सोई हुई जवानी को
तू छू के ज़रा जगा जा
मेरी निगाहें अदाएं ये बाहें बुलाएँ

दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
हाय दिल दे जा निशानी

तेरी जिएगी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
ओ मेरे दिल जानी

दम में दम है तो दम लगा
दुनिया क्या है नशा ही नशा
आसमां के बादल तो
कुछ भी नहीं
मज़ा तो तब है के
ज़मीं पे बादल बना
मेरे हमदम
रात है कम
के बातों में
ये सारी
रात ना जाये
मेरे हमदम॰ ॰ ॰

Gaddaar (1973) was produced and directed by Harmesh Malhotra and starred Vinod Khanna, Yogita Bali, Pran, Iftekhar, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Ranjeet, Manmohan, Ajit, Padma Khanna, etc. The three songs in this movie were penned by Anand Bakshi and were composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Watching this movie, during its initial release and many a times subsequently, always gave me pleasure. It is a kind of story which you usually read in a James Hadley Chase novel or some Hollywood heist caper. A major heist goes off as planned, until one person double crosses the team. The rest of the movie is about how those involved hunt for the traitor who has disappeared with the loot from their last big heist.

The movie is an intriguing and gripping thriller that boasts of brilliant performances, witty dialogues and much more. You should definitely not miss this one.

As Greta Memsaab says, she was “positively riveted to my chair” while watching this movie. Read her review of this movie here

A reviewer on IMDB says;

“Solid cast with Pran, Iftekhar, Anwar Hussain, Madan Puri, Vinod Khanna, Manmohan, Ranjit, Ajit, etc. All are good. The plot is very good. It is probably based on some English crime novel. Unlike a typical Hindi movie, there are no clear heroes and villains. There are shades of gray which is unusual and makes the movie worth watching. Also, every character seems to have something special in him in spite of so many of them. Snowy locations are spectacular in this. “

Today(10 march 2018) is Padma Khanna’s 69th birthday. We, all here at Atuldom, wish her a long and healthy life. She currently lives in New Jersey, USA and is the founder and principal of Indianica Academy, where she and others teach youngsters Kathak and fusion dances to Indian Folk dancing for Bollywood enthusiasts.

We celebrate her birthday with this fast cabaret song sung by Lata Mangeshkar, penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is lip synced by Padma Khanna as she dances with the dance master Oscar (of Vijay Oscar Team). The song has heavy prelude and postlude music with an Arabian feel and tempo.

“Gaddaar”(1973) makes its debut in the blog with this song.


Song-Wai wai main jal gayi (Gaddaar)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

I had promised my co-Atulite and friend Avinash Ji that my next post will be of a song to his liking and which he, as probably many of us, have forgotten in more than four decades since this movie has been released. Some of the readers may be hearing this song for the first time.

This movie was released in the year that I passed out from my school and probably saw it during the intervening period when I left the school and started my junior college. The movie was no great shakes, as in a run-of-the-mill romantic thrillers with the then popular (one of them) jodis of Randhir Kapoor and Rekha. These two acted together in many movies starting with Rampur Ka Laxman (1972), Dharam Karam (1975), Dafaa 302 (1975), Khalifa (1976), Ram Bharose (1977), etc.

Aaj Ka Mahatma (1976) was directed by Kundan Kumar for producers Kundan Kumar and Sharad Kumar, music by Laxmikant and Pyarelal.

The movie stars Randhir Kapoor, Rekha, Ranjeet, Bindu, Manmohan, Manmohan Krishna, Kumud Chuggani, Purnima, Shetty, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Keshto Mukherjee, Sanjana, Dilip Dutt, Manorama, Rajan Haksar, Jeevan, Anand Joshi, Kirti Kumar, Rajan Kapoor, Narbada Shankar, A.N. Malhotra, Bhagwan Sinha, Deepak, Ramesh Deo, etc

The storyline:

Randhir and Ranvir Verma are twins. Randhir is straightforward, while Ranvir is a petty criminal. These petty thefts add up, and soon the police arrest Ranvir, and he is sentenced to prison. In prison, Ranvir incurs the wrath of a gangster, Tony, and is killed. Randhir undertakes to find the killer, and gets himself arrested, and imprisoned to get to see who the killer is. After getting out from prison, Randhir plans to avenge his brother’s death, without knowing that he himself could endanger his very life, as well the life of his girlfriend, Mala. The song “Chandni chand se hoti hai, sitaron se nahin, pyar bhi ek se hota hai hazaron se nahin…” is still popular.

This song is sung by the one and only Lata Mangeshkar (many a times sounding like sister Usha, in this song), penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is lip synced by Bindu who is dancing to the song. The lead pair of Randhir Kapoor and Rekha are also present.

The song has a Goan flavour, with strong use of trumpets. There were many songs, based on Goan music, composed by LP after the success of “Na maangoon sona chandi” from Bobby 1973. In 1974, it was “Daaru ki botal mein” from Majboor; in 1976 it was today’s song and “Prem ka rog bada bura” from Dus Numbri; in 1977 they came up with “Hey La la Hey Lala Jhoomo Zara” from Chacha Bhatija; etc.

With this song, Aaj Ka Mahatma (1976) makes its debut on this blog.

I hope this song brings nostalgia to lots of people who were in their teens during the mid-seventies.


Song-Kombda ba baanu aashiq zhaala (Aaj Ka Mahatma)(1976) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Kombda ba baanu aashiq zhaala

Blog Day : 3497 Post No. : 14054

Last weekend, during my forced medical leave, I was a bit bored and wanted to watch any old Hindi mystery movie, which I had not seen. My search on You Tube led me to a B grade (or even C grade) movie with good lead stars (Vinod Mehra and Yogita Bali) and even a bit of interesting story line. However, I wasted 1 hr 56 minutes of my time, except for a song which is as good as the old Bappi Da songs.

This song brought out goose pimples in me. It was so enthralling, so melodious, so refreshing, so sweet, excellently penned and composed. Bappi Da probably went back to his basic days of “Chalte Chalte”, “Dil Se Miley Dil”, “Lahoo Ke Do Rang” etc, because this song belongs to the same genre as songs from these movie. I usually do not post songs post 1980s, unless it is absolutely rare and beautiful. This rare gem is from a 1988 thriller titled “Who Milie Thi” aka “Kaun Hai Khooni”. Kishore Kumar comes up with another winner with this romantic number. The song is composed by Bappi Lahiri as mentioned and written by Farook Kaiser. The female voice during the interlude and at the end of the song is of Meena Patki.

Now without prolonging the suspense let me tell you that the song I am talking about is “Chhoo Ne Se Maila Ho Aisa Badan Toone Paaya Hai”. Even today, when I come across such a soft romantic song, the music and the lyrics can take me back to a cherished time, making instantaneous connections to places and times full of evocative memories. The song is penned either by Gauhar Kanpuri or Farooque Kaiser, composed by Bappi Lahiri and is from “Woh Milie Thi” (1988)

For those readers interested in the synopsis, it goes as this:

Amar, young and smart foreign returned Mines Engineer moves to Lalitpur to reopen his own coal mines which were closed down fifteen years back after the mysterious deaths of Amars father and uncle. But before he reaches to his destination he meets a beautiful mysterious girl Milie performing mujra in mysterious Pili Haveli.

While crossing the long and dark valleys, Milie suddenly vanishes and Amar collides with Milie’s skeleton in pitch darkness. Amar’s friend police inspector Vikram tells him that Milie had died five years back and it is her soul that is still around in search of peace. Amar doesn’t believe this and keeps on trailing Milie wherever he sees her. Once while trailing Milie Amar finds inspector Vikrams dead body and is accused for his murder.

Meanwhile Amar goes back to city and gets married but has to run back to Lalitpur leaving his forest night because his friend Vijay meets an accident, After reaching there he finds it was a minor accident. Now one after another incident holds Amar to go back to meet his newly wedded bride. His mother reaches Lalitpur with his bride. Amar happily goes to meet his wife but once again he is forced to leave her by a danger siren. Amar runs towards the source but on the way he is attacked by mysterious people and the police save him. Amar reaches home and finds his bride missing. He runs to find her but is taken on gun point by his own servant John and the real race with the devil starts, a race, in which the devil is only interested to kill Amar.

The movie had three directors – Dilip Bose, Samir Chowdhury and Azeem Malik and was produced by Rama Kapoor, the movie starred Vinod Mehra, Yogeeta Bali in lead roles, supported by Mahesh Anand, Vikas Anand, Bindu, Aruna Irani, Jagdeep, T.P. Jain, Joginder, Kader Khan, Madhu Malini, Ram Mohan, Shobhini Singh, Jayshree T., Veena with special appearences by Shashi Kapoor and Moushumi Chatterjee.

Today (13 february 2018) is the 73rd anniversary of Vinod Mehra (13 February 1945 – 30 October 1990). Here is this gem of a song from a “recent” yet obscure movie as a tribute to Vinod Mehra.

With this song, “Wo Milie Thhi”(1988) makes its debut in the blog.

My movie watching spree was at its peak during the year 1975 – 76. Mind you, in 1976 I had to appear for my school leaving certificate (the SSC board exam). But being a street smart teen with a knack for remembering most of the things that I came across, I always used to score good marks in my exams. Not that I stood in the top three in my class, but I was not in the bottom three as well. Hope you get my drift.

During the several morning shows I saw, missing my classes, I distinctly remember seeing Mazaaq because it was the movie which I saw on the penultimate day before the school closed for my half yearly exams. It was not a great movie that one can remember (as you can see from the synopsis below), but I had to see it as it was the new release on that day (Friday) and watching movies was my staple diet, so any movie would do.

It was only in my twenties that I heard this sweet song and was floored by it. This song has Asha Bhonsle and Pancham at one of their best. I hope many of you remember this song and those who haven’t can marvel at this beautiful melody.

The movie synopsis:

The movie story deals with Vinod who is in search for job. One day he rescues Dr. Aruna (Irani) from a fire, and when she recovers, he steals a certificate in the name of Heeralal Mehta, certifying that the person is medically mentally challenged. He changes the name on the certificate, goes around acting mad, getting food & clothing for free. He also involves his down and out friend, Raja (Mehmood) in this scheme.

The Police are informed about Vinod, and in order to escape he re-locates to Bangalore. Once there he applies and gets a job as a Manager with the Narang family business, meets with Moushumi and both fall in love with each other. One day Moushumi’s dad comes across the certificate, and also a newspaper notice about Vinod’s escapade and his mental condition. He fires Vinod and asks him never to meet Moushumi again.

Vinod returns to Bombay, gets another certificate from Dr. Irani, this time certifying that he is sane, and he past actions were just a joke, and returns to Bangalore – only to find that Moushumi is about to married to another man her dad has chosen for her. The rest of the movie is about what happens next?

The movie stars Vinod Mehra, Moushami Chatterji, Aruna Irani, Iftekhar, Asrani, Mukri, Keshto Mukherjee, Agha, Bhagwan, Shobha Khote, Viju Khote, Paintal, etc. It is directed by Kumar for producers Jayantha Mukherjee, Ritesh Mukherjee (Moushami’s husband in real life). The music is composed by Rahul Dev Burman and the songs are penned by Yogesh Gaud.

“Takra Gaye Do Baadal Ambar Pe” by Asha Bhonsle with monologues in the interludes by Vinod Mehra, composed by R D Burman and penned by Yogesh Gaud from “Mazaaq 1975”.


Song-Takra gaye do baadal ambar pe (Mazaaq)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-R D Burman
Vinod Mehra

Lyrics

Takraa gaye do
Baadal ambar pe ae
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae
Takraa gaye do o

Maushami,
Kitna pyaaraa naam hai
Is naam ka saath toh
Har mausam se hai
Chaahe woh sardi ka ho
ya garmi ka
Patjhad ka ho
ya saawan ka

Ahh Chhodo
Jaao
Bade woh ho tum m
Naam mera
Jod diya
Mausam se sanam m
Mausam
Phir bhi
Mausam hai sanam m
Naam mera
Joda na bataa
Khud se kyun balam
Mujhse milaao yeh nain to
Aise na jalaao mere mann ko o o o
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae ae
Takraa gaye do

Yeh saawan ka mausam to khoobsoorat hai hi
Lekin tumhaari is khubsoorat umar ne
Ise aur bhi khubsoorat bana diya hai

Jaane
Aayi
Kaisi yeh umar
Ban ke kali
Khilne lagi
Sooni raah par r
Tan mein
Mann mein
Uthhi yeh lehar r
Tujhse sajan
Takraaye mann
jaaoon main bikhar
Aag lage re saawan ko o
Chhoo gaya mere daaman ko o o
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae
Takraa gaye do o

Joshila is a 1973 Bollywood thriller film directed by Yash Chopra. The film stars Dev Anand, Raakhee, Hema Malini, Pran, Bindu, Madan Puri, Manmohan Krishna, Padma Khanna, A. K. Hangal, Sulochana Latkar, Sudhir, Hercules, Master Satyajeet, I. S. Johar, Vikas Anand, Roopesh Kumar, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj and Mahendra Sandhu.

Joshila was directed by Yash Chopra, produced by Gulshan Rai for Trimurti Films, written by Akhtar ul-Iman, Akhtar Mirza, Gulshan Nanda and C. J. Pavri, cinematography by Fali Mistry, edited by Pran Mehra and was released on the 19th of October 1973. The playback was by Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Dev Anand, lyrics were by Sahir Ludhianvi and the composer was R D Burman.

The storyline (according to IMDB) is:

Jailor Manmohan Krishan is responsible for looking after convicts undergoing sentences of rigorous imprisonment. He has a young, beautiful and captive daughter named Shalini. Shalini is a poet, one day while reciting her poetry, she meets with a young man, who introduces himself as Amar, who also happens to be a poet himself. The two of them spend beautiful moments together and finds themselves attracted to each other. Shalini wants to find out why Amar is in jail. She is told in no uncertain terms that Amar is in jail for murder – for killing the brother of his former lover, Sapna. She also found out that this is not true and would strive to the best of her merit to get Amar release from jail because she is in love with him and would like to marry him.

In this song, Padma Khanna lip syncs and dances with a male counterpart (unidentified) to “Kaanp Rahi Main” in Joshila 1973 sung by Asha Bhonsle, penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Rahul Dev Burman,

There were eight songs in the movie, of which four have been covered earlier in this blog. This is the fifth song to be posted.

This is the 3300th song by Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog.

Blog Day : 3482 Post No. : 13987

Having overcome the guilt of not contributing any song posts to one of my favourite blogs, I now feel mentally at ease.

My younger son got married recently. All our energy and resources were directed towards making this event a great success. We were very lucky that everything went as planned and now both my boys are happily married and have moved into their own sweet homes. Me and my wife now have the task of downsizing our 5 bedroom house to a more manageable 2 or 3 bedroom house. This process will be completed within the next 3 to 6 months.

Also, on the day of the said marriage, after finishing all the major events, I unfortunately, snapped the Achilles’ tendon in my right leg. I had to be rushed to the hospital and had my leg put in a a fiberplast cast. I have been told to use crutches and/or a wheel chair so as not to put any pressure on the leg. Thus, I am not at home for the next six weeks and have ample time to present some interestingly rare songs on this blog.

Now, as I sit down to write today’s post, I fondly recall this gem of a song, which used to feature in one of my audio cassettes titled R D Burman with Lata Mangeshkar. If you are hearing this song for the first time, I would suggest that you listen to it at least two or three times. This song grows on you.

Well that’s an interesting expression. How or why does a particular song grow on you ?

For me, I think it has to do with either it’s rarity, complexity or uniquity (is that a word?).

If there’s a lot going on in a song, it can take a number of listens to pick up on the big picture, as you may be focusing on one thing in particular. It takes time to build that picture up. Sometimes I listen to a song I have listened to a lot and still pick up on things I had never noticed before. If a song has a unique nature to it, it can take me time to adjust to it.

Today’s song is from an obscure movie, Savera from 1972, which makes its debut on this blog. It is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. I distinctly remember having seen this movie but I hardly remember the story line. I just remember that Rehana Sultan is Saroj who loves Jatin (Kiran Kumar) but, unwillingly, under family pressure, goes on to marry Amar (Anil Dhawan). However, while being married, she is pregnant with Jatin’s child, which she is unaware of. I only remember this much and even this may be 100% wrong. However, we are here to appreciate this beautiful song.

Tons and tons of material has been written about our favourite Pancham Da aka Rahul Dev Burman. My saying anything further will be like showing a lamp to the sun, a cliché used widely in Hindi. The song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar and penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Ed note: This rare song, a song that grows on you with repeated listening, is the 3300th song by Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog.


Song-Main to deewaani tere liye o re piya(Sawera)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
Laa la laa la
Laa la laa la
Hmm Hmm Hmm Hmm

Tujhpe Luta Di Ye Zindgaani Re
Main To Deewaani
Hmm Hmm Hmm Hmm
Laa La Laa La aa

Tera Pyaar Le ke
Dooloon Nazaaron Mein
Udta Hai Panchhi
Jaise Bahaaron Mein
Yeh Mere Tan Se
Kisi Ki Mehak Aaye
Poochhe Pawan Se
Kaliyaan Ishaaron Mein
Unko Khabar Kya Mujh pe
Kaisi Jawaani Re
Main To Deewaani
Tere Liye
O Re Piya
Main To Deewaani
Tujhpe Luta Di
Ye Zindgaani Re
Main To Deewaani

Apne Piya Ke
Dil Mein Utar Ke Main
Soyi Sanwar Ke
Jaagi Nikhar Ke Main
Mohe Mila Jo
Rang Sajan Se
Chhalki phiroongi
Wohi Rang Bhar Ke Main
Laagoon Abhi Se Balma
Kaisi Suhaani Re
main to deewaani
Tere Liye
O Re Piya
Main To Deewaani
Tujhpe Luta Di
Ye Zindagaani Re
Main To Deewaani

Kya Jaanoon Sajna
Sansaar Ki Baatein
Maine To Seekhi Hain
Do Pyaar Ki Baatein
Hai Mera Mandir
Teri Nigaahon Mein
Aur Meri Pooja
Tujhse Mulaakaatein
Tujhpe Khatam Hai Saiyaan
Meri Kahaani Re
Main To Deewaani
Tere Liye
O Re Piya
Main To Deewaani
Tere Liye
O Re Piya
Main To Deewaani
Tujhpe Luta Di
Ye Zindgaani Re
Main To Deewaani
Tere Liye
O Re Piya
Main To Deewaani

Rare Gems – Laxmikant Pyarelal
————————————
Being a fellow contributor to the ASAD blog, one is privy to being in the WhatsApp group, which while reading through the posts sometime back I came across my name and I was surprised. Atul Ji, the creator of ASAD had mentioned that my name had come up as the one with the longest absence from the group, with my last post more than two years ago.

It’s true and I would like to sincerely apologise to one and all about this. It can be attributed to many reasons including work etc, but it was never the lack of interest. My love for HFM and listening to it (and that too rare songs) is what gives me the maximum pleasure and acts as a real pain killer and a soother of sorts.

I have been meaning to post this song from almost immediately after my last post here. It is as rare as songs can go and would fit in to any programs broadcasted by SLBC (Radio Ceylon for us old timers) like Bhoole Bisre Geet or Jaane Pehchane Geet, etc

I would like to take this opportunity to discuss some aspects of the music of Laxmikant Pyarelal, the composers of this fab song. It is a fact that I started liking and then following their music immediately after the super hit “Bobby” in 1973. What I found was a huge repatriorie of successful and hit songs, right from their first movie as music directors – Parasmani 1963.

Before this they worked as assistants and instrumentalists with Shankar Jaikishan and Kalyanji Anandji. They also helped their friend Rahul Dev Burman during his first movie as composer, “Chote Nawab” (1961). Pyarelal Ji himself told me, during my visit to his house in September of 2013, that Pancham was exactly that – a composer. He had just composed the tunes of the songs from his first movie, but the preludes, interludes, counter melody and the background music was composed and conducted by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The Laxmi-Pyare Jodi have composed and conducted music for more than 600 movies. According to my friend Bobby Singh Ji, who has thus written on his website (Bobby Talks Cinema) – “Laxmikant, was more inclined towards composing and Pyarelal into the arrangement. In fact Pyarelal is considered to be one of the top 5 arrangers in Hindi Film Music History, with outstanding knowledge of Indian Musical Instruments’ Arrangements.”
The melody of the song in today’s post is simply superb.In fact, Laxmi-Pyare had an uncanny knack of producing real gems for B or even C grade films. The guitar and flute, specially in the postlude is simply mesmerising. The instruments used were Bass Guitar, Electric Organ, Trumpet, Thrombone, Drums, Piano as well as Saxaphone by Manohari Da.

This song is from “Sweekar” released in 1973. The censor certificate is dated 18th May 1973. The movie starred Mahendra Sandhu, Hansa Maker, Namit Kapoor, A K Hangal, Raj Mehra, Shaukat Kaifi, Keshto Mukharjee, Kesho Rana, etc, with a special appearance of Gulshan Arora. It was written and directed by Sudhendru Roy for producers C D Shah and Harish Upadhyay for Filmlands Productions.

I had seen the movie when it was released but have forgotten the story. If any reader can shed some light on the story, kindly do so for the benefit of other readers.

With this song, Sweekar (1973) makes a debut on this blog.

Editor’s note: This song has ended up being as rare as the posting by the contributor. 🙂 I last heard this song in 1970s. Prakashchandra recently sent the lyrics of this and other song from the movie. So there are our regulars who remember this song, no matter how obscure it is. The song is picturised on Hansa Maker and Namit Kapoor, as informed by Prakashchandra.


Song-Angdaaiyaan le le kar tanhaaiyon mein aksar (Sweekaar)(1973) singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

 

angdaiyaan le lekar
tanhaaiyon mein aksar
main sochti rehti hoon
kahin pyaar ho na jaaye
ikraar ho na jaaye
ae dil
ae dil
angdaaiyaan le lekar
tanhaaiyon mein aksar
main sochti rehti hoon
kahin pyaar ho na jaaye
ikrar ho na jaaye
ae dil
ae dil

sulge rang roop mera
paani mein aag jaisa
sandal se is badan se
lipte koi naag jaisa
ruswaaiyon se dar kar
parchhaaiyon se chhup kar
kuch dhoondhti rahti hoon
kahin pyaar ho na jaaye
ikraar ho na jaaye
ae dil
ae dil


sapnon mein ho gayi hai
saajan se baat jaise
lagta hai aa rahi hai
meri baaraat jaise
shehnaaiyan yoon sun kar
shehnaaiyon ki dhun par
main jhhoomti rehti hoon
kahin pyaar ho na jaaye
ikraar ho na jaaye
ae dil
ae dil


jaane woh preet apni
jaane paraayi hoon
kya ho jo meet mann ka
thhoda harjaai ho
harjaaiyon se mil kar
gehraaiyon mein kho kar
main sochti rahti hoon
kahin pyaar ho na jaaye
ikraar ho na jaaye
ae dil
ae dil


angdaiyaan le le kar
tanhaaiyon mein aksar
main sochti rehti hoon
kahin pyaar ho na jaaye
ikraar ho na jaaye
ae dil
ae dil

अंगड़ाइयाँ ले ले कर
तन्हाइओं में अक्सर
मैं सोचती रहती हूँ
कहीं प्यार हो ना जाये
इक़रार हो ना जाये
ए दिल
ए दिल
अंगड़ाइयाँ ले ले कर
तन्हाइओं में अक्सर
मैं सोचती रहती हूँ
कहीं प्यार हो ना जाये
इक़रार हो ना जाये
ए दिल
ए दिल

सुलगे रंग रूप मेरा
पानी में आग जैसा
संदल से इस बदन से
लिपटे कोई नाग जैसा
रुसवाईओं से डर कर
परछाईंओं से छुप कर
कुछ ढूंढती रहती हूँ
कहीं प्यार हो ना जाये
इक़रार हो ना जाये
ए दिल
ए दिल

सपनों में हो गई है
साजन से बात जैसे
लगता है आ रही है
मेरी बारात जैसे
शहनाईयां यूं सुन कर
शहनाईओं की धुन पर
मैं झूमती रहती हूँ
कहीं प्यार हो ना जाये
इक़रार हो ना जाये
ए दिल
ए दिल

जाने वो प्रीत अपनी
जाने पराई हूँ
क्या हो जो मीत मन का
थोड़ा हरजाई हो
हरजाईओं से मिल कर
गहराईओं में खो कर
मैं सोचती रहती हूँ
कहीं प्यार हो ना जाये
इक़रार हो ना जाये
ए दिल
ए दिल

अंगड़ाइयाँ ले ले कर
तन्हाइओं में अक्सर
मैं सोचती रहती हूँ
कहीं प्यार हो ना जाये
इक़रार हो ना जाये
ए दिल
ए दिल

Rahul Dev Burman – Forgotten Songs – 4
——————————————-

When I started this series, I thought it would be an easy task to pick up these forgotten songs one by one for posting. However, after three posts I now realise that, with so many of the Pancham gems not posted here, it is quite a difficult task. After pondering on the task for some time, the solution, which was always logical, was staring at me right in the face. Go alphabetically!!
