Aa ha, close to midnight, and we are at the Yippeee-ing hour once again. And the film that we are inviting into the yippeee-land tonight is ‘Hongkong’ from 1962.

There are many films that have taken us to foreign lands, and even around the world. But I am sure you will agree, that the film that has the most songs about foreign places, is this one. Let us just examine – first we have two important cities of south east Asia covered in the song – “Hongkong China Mina Singapore”. Then we have three nations from Africa, covered in the song “Kenya Uganda Tanganika”. An then, in yet one more sojourn abroad, we are taken to visit the Hawaii islands in the song in this post “Hono Lu Lu, Hono Lu Lu, Honolulu, Honolulu”. I am sure, outside of the film ‘Around The World’ (1967), in all probability, it is this film that covers the maximum number of foreign locations in its songs.

As per the Geet Kosh listings, this film is from the production banner of Pachhi Productions, and is directed by Pachhi himself. The star cast is led by Ashok Kumar and B Saroja Devi. Other members of the star cast include KN Singh, Helen, Bhalla, Babu Rao, Kitty, King, Doctor, Balram, Vishwamama, Kundan, Om Prakash, Lilly, and Leo amongst others. The nine songs of this film are written by four songwriters – Shewan Rizvi, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, SH Bihari and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, the song writer for this particular song is not identified. Music is from the mind of OP Nayyar.

Although the film itself is available, I am not able to locate online, the video clip of this song. As an interesting aside, there is a minor discussion around the availability of this complete version of this film in the collector circles. It seems that the video version of this film that is the most easily available, is purported to be an edited and incomplete version, in which the ending of the film has been edited out. And then there are one or two collectors who claim that they have the complete version of this film. Honestly, I have seen both the versions – the one that is more easily available, and the more complete version with a collector friend of mine – with very clear difference in the footage.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle. This is yet another wonderful and soft creation from OP Nayyar, having a slow paced rhythm. The tune allows to break down the lines of the song into shorter phrases, emphasizing each of the phrase components, and making the song sound more endearing. An enchanting rendering by Asha Bhosle – readily one of her best songs.

The list of earlier songs posted is given below. The nine songs have taken as much as almost six years, to all come on board.

Missing Films of 1960s – 45
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I scanned the filmography of Nayyar Sb, presented by Atul ji in his late evening post yesterday, my eyes stopped with a jerk on seeing a ‘0’ in the decade of 1960s. Quick shift to the left and I find that the film is ‘The Killers’ from 1969. And the mind said ‘wow’ again – this film, and that too with Nayyar Sb’s music – how can that be an outsider still. Time to set the record right. So the immediate decision was to debut this film – immediately. 🙂

‘The Killers’ – is a kind of a multi starrer before its time. It brought together Sheikh Mukhtar, Dara Singh and Ajit – all stars in their own right of the genre of stunt / suspense / thriller films. Other players in the star cast are Helen (of course), Bela Bose, Leela Chitnis, Bhagwan, Jagdish Raj, Anwar Husain, Amar, Maruti, Savita, Sushma, Ram Lal, and Kundan etc. And yes, the alternate title of this film, now do not be surprised – ‘Hum Sab Qaatil Hain’, a la ‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain’ and ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’.  😀 😀

The film is produced under the banner of Sangam Films, Bombay, and is directed by Maruti. The six songs in this film are shared between Aziz Kashmiri (2) and SH Bihari(4). This song is written by SH Bihari. Music – yes OP Nayyar Sb.

A wonderfully composed song, that immediately brings to memory, the similarly paced song – “Hum Ne To Dil Ko Aap Ke Kadmon Mein Rakh Diya”, sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle for Nayyar Sb in the film ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965). The use of sitar is simply so exquisite.

On screen, the song has been performed so sensuously by Helen, as she showers her graces on to her beau, role played by Dara Singh. In the initial moments of the song, the gentleman seems spooked, watching the lady wearing a towel, and then getting ready. He has this bowled over astounded expression on his face – almost as if, if he was required to say something, then God help the director.

But all in all, a wonderful composition, and performed equally wonderfully on screen by Helen. This is not a dance song, but she has conducted herself extremely tastefully.

With this, the film ‘The Killers’ makes its debut on our blog. And enjoy this lovely song. And the Helen performance.  🙂

 

Song – Nazren Mila Ke Aap Ne Ehsaan Kar Diya  (The Killers) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

hmmm hmmm hmmm
la la la la laaa lalla
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm

nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
duniya mein aur kuchh bhi nahin
pyaar ke siwa
sab kuchh wafaa ke naam pe
qurbaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya

bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
mushqil tha zindagi ka safar
aap ke bagair
baahon mein le ke aap ne
aasaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम
ला ला ला ला लाss लल्ला
हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम

नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
दुनिया में और कुछ भी नहीं
प्यार के सिवा
सब कुछ वफा के नाम पे
कुर्बान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया

बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
मुश्किल था ज़िंदगी का सफर
आप के बगैर
बाहों में ले के आप ने
आसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13929

It is almost close to midnight, and in some regions, it is the ‘witching hour’. Well, on our blog, it is the ‘Yippeee-ing hour’ 🙂 🙂 .

Today’s yippeee film is an obscure film from 1960 – ‘Delhi Junction’. This film has recently been a matter of gossip in the circle of collectors. You see the thing is that there is word going around that this film is available with someone, who is willing to sell it for a price; quite a price I assure you. At first, it seemed to be another interesting stir in the collector’s community, types if which continue to create waves quite frequently, and then come to a naught. But then it seems, it became a serious talk. A couple of posts emerged on the YouTube containing short video clips of the songs of this film. So it seems there is serious game afoot, and it is possible that we may get some more confirmed news – time frame undefined. Depends on when someone is able to meet the pricing demands. Let us see.

The film has some really memorable songs, as can be ascertained from the table of posted songs, included further down in this article. These songs have been dear favourites from the radio listening days. And that makes this film all the more inviting, and interesting.

The film comes from the production house of Nigaaristan (India) Films, Bombay. It is produced by RL Sharma and is directed by Mohammed Husain. It must have been considered an important film in its time, considering the star cast. The players leading the cast are Ajit and Shakila. Other members of the cast include Nishi, Maruti, Manorama, Tiwari, Pran, Protima Devi, Murad, Rafiq, Kamal Mohan, Harun, Anwari Bai, Pal Sharma, Jagdish Kanwal, Nadir, Satish, Sadiq, Sarita, Kukku, Rajni, and Khurshid etc.

The film sports a total of six songs. The music director is Kalyanji Veerji Shah. So this turns out to be one of the handful of films, where Kalyanji Bhai is alone credited for the music. As it turns out, this is the last of the six films that carry the name of Kalyanji Bhai only. Althougt Anandji, the younger brother, has always been working with Kalyanji, it is only after ‘Chandrasena’ (1959) that the duo started to use Kalyanji-Anandji as the official name of their team. The six films of Kalyanji Veerji Shah are ‘Post Box 999’ (1958), ‘Samrat Chandragupt’ (1958), ‘Bedard Zamana Kya Jaane’ (1959), ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Baat’ (1959), ‘O Tera Kya Kehna’ (1959), and this film being yippeee’d today.

The film has four songwriters identified – Gulshan Bawra, Prem Dhawan, PL Santoshi, and Farooque Kaiser. Today’s song is by PL Santoshi. The assignment of specific lyricist to individual songs is included in the table below.

The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar supported by chorus. When I started to work on this post, my initial impressions were that this might be a children’s song. But no, this turns out to be quite a song for mature adults, especially ones who are smitten with the matters of the heart. If you are surprised by this assertion, then just check out the lyrics below and listen to the song. With lines like “Dekho Dekho Nazron Ka Signal Gira’ and ‘Jaane Jo Ulfat Ka Jaadu Wo Hi Chalen”, this song is in no way going to be counted as a song for children.

The film has made its debut on the blog way back on 18th December, 2011, just over six years now. Wow, it seems we are taking multiple years to completely bring on board all songs of individual films. But I assure you that on many occasions, it is just a reflection of the online availability of the songs themselves. Take the case of this film today – the final song that we are showcasing here, is not yet available anywhere on the internet, and I am posting it online from my collection for the first time today.

The earlier posted songs of this film are listed below.

 

Zaalim Zamaane Ne Itna Sataayaa Hai 5149 18-Dec-11 Gulshan Baawra
Naam Tera Leke Mohe Chhede Hai Zamaana 10451 5-Nov-14 Farooque Kaiser
Tere Mukhde Ki Dekhi Jhalak Jab Se 11232 30-Jun-15 PL Santoshi
Kehti Hoon Main Sach Sach 13633 6-Oct-17 Prem Dhawan
Kya Karoon Dil Kisi Pe Kho Gaya 13637 7-Oct-17 Prem Dhawan

 

So with this post, let us all welcome the film ‘Delhi Junction’ to the Yippeee land today. One more down today. . and many still to go.

[Ed Note: It was only after this song got posted that I took a breather, only to notice that Atul ji has also already welcomed another film (the previous post) to Yippeee-land today. It most certainly seems like the ‘yippeee-ing hour’, what with two films racing to Yippeee-land, just within minutes of each other. 😀 😀 ]

Song – Gaadi Dilli Waali Chali  (Delhi Junction) (1960) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – PL Santoshi, MD – Kalyanji Veerji Shah

Lyrics

tum bhi chalo
hum bhi chalen
tum bhi chalo

jalne waali zaalim duniya dekhe khadi
ye to sabko jalaati chali
ye gaadi dilli waali chali
gaadi dilli waali chali
ye gaadi dilli waali chali

गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
बिना टिकट ले जाने वाली
सब रेलों से रेल निराली
छुक छुक करती चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली

देखो पानी आग बिना ये कैसी चली

बलखाती लहराती दुल्हन जैसे चली

टेढ़ी मेढ़ी ऊंची नीची इस की गली
ये तो छुक छुक करती चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली

देखो देखो नज़रों का सिगनल गिरा

देखो देखो आहों का धुआँ उठा

गाड़ी चली

शोर मचाती प्यार जगाती सीटी बाजी

ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली

पास में जिनके दिल हो बाबू

जानें जो उल्फ़त का जादू
वो ही चलें

तुम भी चलो

जलने वाली ज़ालिम दुनिया देखे खड़ी
ये तो सबको सबको जलाती चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली
ये गाड़ी दिल्ली वाली चली

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

ये लहू नहीं है पग में
आशा का लहू बहता है
तुम सुन जो सको तो सुन लो
बह बह के तुम्हें कहता है
आशा को तोड़ ना जइयो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

इस लहू को इक दिन सजनी
सिंदूर बनाना होगा
तेरी मांग सजानी होगी
डोली में बिठाना होगा
उस दिन की खोज में रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

Missing Films of 1960s – 44
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There is so much to be explored and to be showcased. This journey of debut songs is taking us down the 1960s path, and almost every day we are discovering fabulous gems of song that most people have not heard.

Today’s film is ‘Flying Circus’ from 1965. The film is produced under the banner of Regal Films, Bombay and is directed by Dhanpat Rai. The star cast is led by Ranjan and Nasreen, and also includes Bela Bose, Neelofer, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Polson, Shyam, Vishwa Mehra, Shri Bhagwan and Kamini Devi etc. There are six songs listed for this film. Music is composed by Robin Bannerjee. Two lyricists are identified – Farooque Kaiser and Yogesh Gaud. This song is from the pen of Yogesh Gaud.

The singing voices are those of Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot.

The music is the key. An obscure film, and a lesser known music director. But see, what wonders can be created even in these obscure circumstances. From the sound and flow of the song, I am quite sure this is a twin dance song. Also, keeping Nasreen’s name possibly for the leading role, the two names that could possibly be performing this song on screen are Bela Bose and Neelofer, but I am just guessing. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends, to add more information for this film and this song.

A lilting fast paced dance number, I am sure you are going to like.  Enjoy

 

Song – Lag Gaya Re Lag Gaya Re Teer Nishaane Pe  (Flying Circus) (1965) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Kamal Barot, Lyrics – Yogesh Gaud, MD – Robin Bannerjee
Suman Kalyanpur, Kamal Barot

तीर निशाने पे
जाएगा बचके कोई मेरी निगाहों से
लग गया

Missing Films of 1960s – 43
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It was a great day yesterday. 🙂 The sun completed its journey cycle of the southern hemisphere, and slowly started to edge over the tilt of the earth’s axis and initiated its journey of the northern hemisphere. The Uttaraayan is initiated. The sun has moved from the ‘dhanu’ constellation to the ‘makar’ constellation, as per the Indian solar calendar. The cycle of seasons moves from Hemant to Shishir. It is the start of the abatement of the cold weather (in the northern hemisphere).

It is a day of great celebrations all over the country. It is the Lohri festival in northern states; it is Pedda Pandaga in Karnataka and Andhra; it is Pongal in Tamilnadu; it is Sukarat in the central states; it is Maagh Bihu in the eastern states. It is the month of Maagh as per the Hindu calendar. On this day of Sankraanti, it is ‘Maagh Mela‘ a big festival in the villages and the centres of pilgrimage. It is considered most auspicious to have a dip in the holy rivers at sunrise on this day. Special pooja ceremonies are held in homes and in temples. Special sweet preparations, and food preparations are done for today. ‘Khichdi’, a meal prepared from rice and lentils is a must preparation for the day. People of all regions will prepare these dishes in large volumes and distribute to one and all.

It is also the beginning of the New Year, as per the Hindu calendar. And so, another Happy New Year greetings to all friends and readers of this blog. 🙂

Yesterday, 14th January, 2018, was also a very very special day for Atul-Song-a-Day. Ah yes, the team messages have been going back and forth since about 10.30 last night. The blog has reached a milestone of fantastic proportions. At just about 11 pm last night (Indian Standard Time), the visitors ticker on the blog main page crossed over from the number 9,999,999 to the number 10,000,000 – signifying that the blog has counted its 10 millionth user. Over a period of 9 years, 5 months and 27 days (till 14th Jan, 2018), now more than One Crore (or Ten Million) visits have been made to this blog.

Folks from all over the world come to our blog in search of songs and music and authenticated information, and yes, accurate lyrics. By any standards, this is a unique web location on this planet. I have said this earlier too – it is an ever enlarging compendium of history of Hindi films and Hindi film music san pareil, anywhere. It is not just the songs that are important – we have such a depth of information that is collated with the rigours of a research project. In our collective humble opinion, no other web site can boast of such a large number of film synopses, film reviews, persona bio sketches, historical compilations, etc., relating to Hindi films and Hindi film music. And not just that, there is in depth articles on so many topics that relate to festivals, historical events, traditions, religious sentiments, eminent personalities – all the stories tied to and told through a film song. That is one accomplishment that surely will take a lot, even to imitate.

It is a ‘labour of love’, to borrow a phrase from our own blog masthead. And this labour of love is effected through a team of good people; people who have come together just for the love of music, and people who have selflessly contributed to this project which is now of gigantic proportions. And key here is ‘good people’ – who only argue with each other for the sake of establishing either the authenticity of information, or the correctness of lyrics 😀 😀 . When good people come together and put together their efforts – only good things will be the outcome. 🙂

I introduce to the readers today, this debut song from the film ‘Eid Ka Chaand’ from 1964. In my effort to bring out the missing films from 1960s, I have already crossed over into 1967. But as I continue to keep checking backwards, I find that more and more films and / or their songs, from this decade at least are becoming available in public domain. ‘Eid Ka Chaand’ is also one such film, from 1964, for which apparently I missed locating this song which, as per the date, was posted back in 2013.

‘Eid Ka Chaand’ is a film from Vakil Productions, Bombay and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors includes Vijay Dutt, Chitra, Krishna Kumar, Niranjan Sharma, Hiralal, Wazir Mohammed Khan, Maruti, Fazlu, and Sadiq amongst others. There are nine songs listed for this film. The songs are written by Kaifi Azmi, and the tunes are composed by Alla Rakha (aka AR Qureshi). Four of these are sung by Laxmi Shankar, which in itself is a treat for music lovers.

The song presented today in the voice of Rafi Sb. The song tells of the qualities of good people, and how they are favoured by the angels in the heavens. The sentiments expressed in these words are so much the fundamental tenets of the Islamic tradition, which in of itself, is a focus on the goodness of human beings.

So quite an appropriate song to pull together all the celebrations and the goodness of people we discussed above. May the Sun’s traversal into Uttaraayan bring together all the warmth of this time and these people into your lives.

Happy Makar Sankraanti and a Happy New Year to all.

Rewind back – goodness – 46 years. This song is from 1971, and the dear melody that we all love is quite alive and well.

Two names that we remember, and honor today – Chitragupt and Kaifi Azmi. Today, it is the birth anniversary of Kaifi Azmi and it is the passing away remembrance day for Chitragupt.

Back in 1971, Chitragupt is passing through his silver anniversary in the tinsel town, and Kaifi Azmi is celebrating his 20th in the same industry.

Chitragupt, born in 1917, started his career with Hindi films in 1945-46. In 1971, his journey has thus far passed through about 130 films, and he has composed approximately 930 songs so far. Kaifi Azmi, born in 1919, started to write for Hindi films in 1951. In 1971, he has thus far written approximately 225 songs for about 50 films.

With such illustrious and prolific careers behind them, it is a wonder that these two stalwarts did not get together till 1970 – almost two decades and more, that both of them had been active in the industry. Their coming together film in 1970 is ‘Hamaara Adhikar’. Then, in 1971, both collaborated once again for creating the songs for ‘Saaz Aur Sanam’. And then, that’s it. These two are the only films, and a handful of songs that these two worked on together.

‘Saaz Aur Sanam’ is a production from the banner of Wadia Movietone and is directed by JBH Wadia. The list of actors reads like – Premendra, Rekha, Suresh Chatwal, Sapru, Purnima, Bhagwan, Asit Sen, Kirti Kumar, Panna Kapoor, Bismillah, Dalda, Rajni Bala, Renu, Brahmachari, Ratan Kumar, Hercules, Dayanand, and Arvind etc.

Premendra is a name that we encounter for the first time in the film ‘Deedaar’ of 1970. He appears in ‘Holi Aayee Re, again in 1970, then in two films in 1971 – ‘Duniya Kya Jaane’ and ‘Saaz Aur Sanam’. And then this name does not appear any more in the listings. Four films, and that’s it. Rekha, who has just made her debut, also in 1970 with the film ‘Saawan Bhadon’ (opposite to Navin Nischol), continues to be active in the Hindi film industry to date.

The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar. The song is performed on screen by Rekha. The two protagonists – Rekha and Premendra – are both in their night-wear. It is clearly a ‘roothna – manaana’ category of song. Premendra is the one who is doing the sulking, and Rekha is the one who is trying to appease him. the hints of playfulness and naughtiness that we would see more of in her subsequent films, are quite visible in this song. Plus the original analysis that Atul ji has once done – it takes about three and a half minutes to “appease” a “sulking” hero or heroine, as the case may be. 🙂

A heartfelt salute to Chitragupt and to Kaifi Azmi on this day today. And a dearly wonderful song to celebrate. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Na Rootho Hamen Paas Aane Bhi Do  (Saaz Aur Sanam) (1971) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Kaifi Azmi, MD – Chitragupt

Missing Films of 1960s – 42
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

IS Johar had a lead of three years over Raj Kapoor. His film ‘Mera Naam Johar’, released in 1967, preceded the great showman’s masterpiece ‘Mera Naam Joker’ which came in 1970. It is a matter of conjecture now, as to who inspired whom. 🙂

So this film is the debut film for today. IS Johar was going very strong, and travelling to many destinations  in the 1960s. In 1965 we saw him in ‘Goa’ with Memood. In 1966, he travelled to ‘Kashmir’. Then in 1967, along with the proclamation that his name is ‘Johar’, he also appeared in ‘Bombay’. His next trip was somewhat delayed, considered that he travelled overseas to ‘Hong Kong’ in 1971, once again in Mehmood’s company.

The film is produced under the banner of Sudershan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Saran Kant. Besides himself in lead role, other members of the cast include Sonia Sahni, Dhoomal, Aruna Irani, Raj Mehra and Tiwari amongst others. The film has 6 songs listed. Music is from the mind of Usha Khanna. Two songwriters are listed – Asad Bhopali and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, only three of the songs have a specific lyricist identified. For this song, the lyricist name has not been identified. This song is written by Qamar Sb. (This information is actually available in the addenda to the volume IV of Geet Kosh, which I missed referring to earlier.)

The song is delivered in a very comical situation. And the songwriter has written some very catchy lines to match the situation. Apparently it seems that IS Johar and Sonia Sahni have to make a getaway from the clutches of the villain’s gangsters, who are blocking the roads even, and screening the people coming and going. And the way out found by the hero is something that can happen only in IS Johar films. They form a funeral procession, and they have Sonia Sahni acting like a dead body, being carried in the traditional funerary ‘takht’ on the shoulders of a group of people. IS Johar, with his head tonsured and wearing only a dhoti, seems to be the epitome of the prime mourner, carrying the traditional fire in a ‘matka’.

He leads the singing, with this song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. The group of people accompanying him includes people who are playing the ‘dholak’ and ‘khartaal’ etc. The procession meets the villain’s henchmen in a sort of a road block. And IS Johar is singing and telling the entire real story – that the dead body is  actually ‘zinda’ (alive), and that they are making good an escape with no one the wiser.

The play acting is so convincing that the henchmen who are leading this group of baddies, actually come forward and shoulder the funerary carriage for some distance, even singing along with the group. A most hilarious situation contrived by the director, and so brazenly and blatantly executed by IS Johar and company. IS Johar looks so convincing in his role as a fake mourner, and as he sings along the lines in which he is indicating the truth of the situation, only if someone would listen ‘between the words’. . . – “Jaane Waala Chala Hai Dekho Rok Sakey Na Koi” 🙂

See, listen and enjoy.

Missing Films of 1960s – 41
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1960s is turning out to be a very interesting era. Notwithstanding the known popular songs, it is the unfamiliar and the forgotten songs that are turning out to be absolutely fantastic entertainment.

Take today’s debut film – ‘Dilruba’ from 1967. Ah yes, I know there might be some eyebrows raised in surprise – but well, ‘Dilruba’ is an earlier film, and aren’t we familiar with it. And that its songs are very much present on our blog. And goodness yes, the film has been yippeee’d already. Well I guess you are right on all counts, except that the film ‘Dilruba’ that has been yippeee’d already is a film from 1950. The film that I am bringing on board today is a same name film, but it is from 1967. Yes, this same name confusion sometimes makes miss some new items.

And to share a very interesting aside here. The songs of this 1967 film have been uploaded by Sa Re Ga Ma on their YouTube channel. And I can’t believe it myself, that a seasoned organization like Sa Re Ga Ma is making such blunders. Maybe the old timers in the company are gone, and the new crop are just following an employment opportunity by rote. You know, they have uploaded the audios of the songs of 1967 film, with an image of the poster of the 1950 film. Quite a blunder this one is.

So the 1967 ’Dulruba’ comes from the banner of Festival Films, Bombay. It is directed by Mohammed Husain. The cast of actors includes Kumkum, Madan Puri, Madhumati, Helen, Shyam Kumar, Ajeet, Maruti etc. The film has 5 songs, for which the music has been composed by Usha Khanna. The five songs are written by three songwriters – Asad Bhopali, Javed Anwar and SH Bihari. This particular song comes from the mind of Asad Bhopali. Again, an aside which may just be a reminder for the regulars. The name Javed Anwar is actually a set of two poets working together. Javed is Manoharlal Khanna, father to Usha Khanna the MD, and Anwar is Raheel Gorakhpuri.

The singing voices are those of Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. What a charming twin dance song this one is. I myself am also hearing it for the first time. With let us say, names of three dancers in the list of actors – Helen, Kum Kum and Madhumati – I don’t even want to start guessing which two of them would be performing this song on screen. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this film, this song and its picturization.

So with this hit, the film ‘Dilruba’ from 1967 opens its account here on the blog today.  A wow song that I am sure you will enjoy.

Song – Haaye Allah Kyon Hum Ne Pyaar Kiya Tum Se  (Dilruba) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Usha Khanna
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
pehle ye dard na tha
rang yun zard na tha
pehle ye dard na tha kya mila tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se

shokh nazren sharaabi ishaara
chheen kar le gaya dil hamara
shokh nazren sharaabi ishaara
chheen kar le gaya dil hamara
zindagi ki kasam
har jafaa har sitam
zindagi ki kasam
har jafaa har sitam
hans ke karna pada hai gawaara
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se

kabhi khud aa gey bin bulaaye
kabhi laakhon bahaane banaaye
kabhi khud aa gey bin bulaaye
kabhi laakhon bahaane banaaye
dil hi dil mein sanam
sochte hain ye hum
dil hi dil mein sanam
sochte hain ye hum
jaane apne ho ya tum paraaye
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
pehle ye dard na tha
rang yun zard na tha
pehle ye dard na tha kya mila tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se
haaye allah kyon hum ne pyaar kiya tum se

Blog Day : 3464 Post No. : 13901

OK, so we come to the Yippeee song for today. The film is ‘Naag Mandir’. Just day before yesterday we have posted a song from this film. And you know, an interesting thing happened. This film has six songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Before yesterday’s post, three songs were on the blog. And then, with yesterday’s post, this film got a double promotion. What with that song being a multi version song, actually two songs on the list – actually same song sung by two different singers – the count got incremented not by 1 but by 2. That is convention we follow on this blog. In case the same song appears more than once in a film, as a multi part song or as a song separately sung by more than one singers, then we include all such multi parts / multi versions in the same post.

So then, having jumped straight to 5 from 3, I was just curiously checking on the sixth song. And goodness, it turns out to be one of the special favorites from the radio listening days. As I searched the YouTube and other online sources, as far as I could make out, this song is not yet available anywhere online. Just that put a bee in the mind, and I wrote to Atul ji let’s Yippeee this film right away. Of course, Atul ji’s response was a happy – ‘more the merrier’. 🙂

Today’s song, as mentioned earlier, is a favorite from radio listening days. A breezy paced rendering by Lata Mangeshkar, in what appears to be a group dance, given that there is a chorus accompaniment to the lead singer. The song tells of the experiences of the heart as it gets smitten and love for someone settles in it for the first time. A lovely tune composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal, as they navigate through the lines of the song at different paces. It is a pleasure to listen to.

With this post, the Yippeee-dom ranking for ‘Naag Mandir’ is confirmed. 🙂

Chorus

Lyrics

chala
wo chala
wo nazar se meri
nazar bacha kar chala
nazar bacha kar chala
chala
wo chala
wo nazar se meri
nazar bacha kar chala
nazar bacha kar chala
usey kaise main rokun ae dil
nai raahen paraai mehfil
mera kya hoga
mera kya hoga
chala
wo chala
wo nazar se meri
nazar bacha kar chala
nazar bacha kar chala

aa haa
aaha
aa haa
aaha

jab haathon mein haath
kisi ka aa gaya
jal gaye laakhon deep
ujaala chhaa gaya
sabko bhula ke usey apna bana liya
sabko bhula ke usey apna bana liya
ye hai dil ki meharbani
mera kya hoga
mera kya hoga

chala

chala

chala
wo chala
wo nazar se meri
nazar bacha kar chala
aaa aaa
nazar bacha kar chala

aa haa
aaha
aa haa
aaha

dil ko jabse rog laga hai pyaar ka
phool ki patti sa
nahin talwar ka
pi ko pukaarun kabhi aadhi aadhi raat ko
pi ko pukaarun kabhi aadhi aadhi raat ko
kabhi sochun main deewaani
mera kya hoga
mera kya hoga

chala

chala

chala
wo chala
wo nazar se meri
nazar bacha kar chala
aaaaaa
nazar bacha kar chala
usey kaise main rokun ae dil
nai raahen paraai mehfil
mera kya hoga
mera kya hoga

चला
वो चला
वो नज़र से मेरी
नज़र बचा कर चला
नज़र बचा कर चला
चला
वो चला
वो नज़र से मेरी
नज़र बचा कर चला
नज़र बचा कर चला
उसे कैसे रोकूँ मैं ए दिल
नई राहें पराई महफिल
मेरा क्या होगा
मेरा क्या होगा
चला
वो चला
वो नज़र से मेरी
नज़र बचा कर चला
नज़र बचा कर चला

आ हा
आहा
आ हा
आहा

जब हाथों में हाथ
किसी का आ गया
जल गए लाखों दीप
उजाला छा गया
सबको भुला के उसे अपना बना लिया
सबको भुला के उसे अपना बना लिया
ये है दिल की मेहरबानी
मेरा क्या होगा
मेरा क्या होगा

चला

चला

वो चला
वो नज़र से मेरी
नज़र बचा कर चला
आ आ
नज़र बचा कर चला

आ हा
आहा
आ हा
आहा

दिल को जबसे रोग लगा है प्यार का
फूल की पत्ती सा
नहीं तलवार का
पी को पुकारूँ कभी आधी आधी रात को
पी को पुकारूँ कभी आधी आधी रात को
कभी सोचूँ मैं दीवानी
मेरा क्या होगा
मेरा क्या होगा

चला

चला

वो चला
वो नज़र से मेरी
नज़र बचा कर चला
आआ
नज़र बचा कर चला
उसे कैसे रोकूँ मैं ए दिल
नई राहें पराई महफिल
मेरा क्या होगा
मेरा क्या होगा
