The novel “Parineeta” penned by Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay has been used in several movies in Hindi as well as in other languages. Some movies had the same title, viz Hindi movies “Parineeta”(1953) and “Parineeta”(2005). Then there have been other movies where the film title was different.

“Sankoch”(1976) was a Hindi movie which was based on the novel “Parineeta”. This movie was directed by Anil Ganguly for Suyog Films, Bombay.

The movie had Jeetendra, Sulakshana Pandit, Vikram, A K Hangal, Om Shivpuri, Aruna Irani, I S Johar, Dulaari, Urmila Bhatt, Baby Chintu, Ramesh Deo, Seema, Roohi, Jankidas, Lalita Kumari, Prreti Ganguly, Dinesh Hingoo, Keshto Mukherji, Birbal, Arvind Rathod, H L Pardesi, Shaukat Bharti, Shail Chaturvedi etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. With time these songs have ended up becoming quite rare.

One song, arguably the most well known song from the movie has been covered in the blog.

Today (2 match 2018) is the 85th birthday of Anandji (2 march 1933) of Kalyanji Anandji music director duo. On this occasion, here is a song from “Sankoch”(1976). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. M G Hashmat is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

HFGK counts this song as one song. This song figures in the movie twice and the lyrics are different in the two occasions. The song gets played while the husband-wife duo of Jeetendra and Sulakshana Pandit are shown having one of their countless disagreements.

This song is one that I do not recall having heard before. It is a nice song to listen to and it quickly grows upon the listener.

We take this opportunity to wish Anandji Veerji Shah a very happy 85th birthday and we wish him many more happy returns of the day.

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13900

Exactly one month and a day – from the time that we hit the last century milestone. The 13800th song had come on to the blog on 10th Dec. And today, 10th Jan, we arrive at the 13900th station of this musical journey. Many congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. We are into another year now, and folks keeping tabs will agree, the pace of postings, and pace of participations has really picked up in the past 10 days. Or to put a positive twist – in the first 10 days of the year. The mind goes back to the whatsapp message on the group – that new year resolutions are but a matter of interest for about a week into the new year. After that, the crowds on the morning walk are back to the thin normal expected for those early hours of the day. 🙂

But so far, so good – the going has been good in these ten days. And quite truthfully, as of now, we have ready posts from many contributors waiting in the wings to come on board. The limitations are at times either just a specific anniversary or a milestone must be covered, or that a debut and a yippeee song must be part of the day’s menu. On all these counts, we seem to be doing really well so far. But, oh then, it is just 10th Jan as yet. Maybe we will create a new record of determined sustenance this year. Or then, maybe we won’t. Time, as they always say, will tell. 🙂

Welcome all to the 13900th पड़ाव on this long and interesting journey of Hindi film music. On this, 3643rd day of the existence of this blog. For such significant milestones, we conventionally attempt to bring together important milestones for artists or anniversaries of artists. Today, the 10th Jan, is the birth anniversary of two living luminaries of the Hindi film industry.

First we have Basu Chattejee, who turns 87 today. Basu Chatterjee, a name that is synonymous with what is termed as the middle-of-the-road genre of Hindi films. Films that are not big star high budget bonanzas of formulaic composition, and neither they are at the extreme end of the avant-garde. If you think of ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) and ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), then that is the genre termed as middle-of-the-road. I remember those were the school days, and it was films like this that none in the family had any objections for us kids to go and watch with friends. For almost a decade, Basu Da’s films were a routine. If it is directed by him, then it is a must watch film.

I have seen almost all of his films as they appeared, during my student years, first school and then college. I was not very familiar with Basu Da as a personality. But his films carried / still carry such an enchanting charisma of natural flow, natural performances, and stories that are closer to real life, but are close in a very endearing sense. The romanticism is nurtured in very natural surroundings. The lead actors are seen waiting at public bus stops, and eating at known regular restaurants. The characters appear to be closer to life – vulnerable, defeat-able, more real than the ‘macho’ heroes of the mainline cinema. The humor is simple, expressed in everyday language. And the story lines – quite natural and rarely getting overdramatic.

That was the cinematic diet that challenged the supremacy of the mainline big budget cinema. Yes, there were other companions of Basu Da on this journey, who share the same penchant for clean and happy entertainment. Of course, Basu Da stands out as the one who has given us wonderful hits year after year, for almost a decade. A quiet sampler of his films from his first decade – ‘Baton Baton Mein’ (1979), ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ (1979), ‘Dillagi’ (1978), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Swami’ (1977), ‘Safed Jhoot’ (1977), ‘Priyatma’ (1977), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1976), ‘Chitchor’ (1976), ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), ‘Us Paar’ (1974), ‘Piya Ka Ghar’ (1972), ‘Sara Akash’ (1969). And of course the list does not end here. It continues well into the early 2000s, albeit that it then gets mixed with mainline, big stars films also.

Each of the films listed above merits an individual write up, in as of itself. Many would remember the songless ‘Sara Akash’ – a tale of a newly wed couple and their tribulations of adjusting with each other and with the families. Ascending forward from this, Basu Da has given us delightful fare to watch year in and year out. A dear salute to this master of the understatement of the middle-of-the-road cinema.

The second birthday we celebrate today is Yesudas. At 77 today, exactly 10 years younger to Basu Da, this young man is the owner of that home grown sound of singing that has adorned many a films by Basu Da. We frequently see his presence in Basu Da’s films, starting with ‘Chit Chor’ and ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ both in 1976, almost becoming the ghost voice of Amol Palekar for many of his films. Although he recorded his first song for Hindi cinema in 1971, for the unreleased film ‘Jai Jawaan Jai Kisan’, the first released films for him were the two mentioned, in 1976.

Born in 1940 in Cochin, Yesudas started his singing career with Malayalam films in 1961. He made a siginificant contribution to the films in south Indian regional cinemas, before heading north to Hindi cinema in early 1970s. His debut in the popular Hindi cinema with Basu Da’s films quickly earned him an important recognition as a playback singer of significant merit.

Yesudas has been honored seven times as the Best Playback Singer at the National Awards. About him, music director Ravindra Jain has said that if he ever regains his vision, the first person he wants to see is Yesudas.

Today’s song brings together these two luminaries. The film ‘Apne Paraaye’  (1980) is directed by Basu Da. In the film, Yesudas is the playback voice for Amol Palekar, yet once again. The song is a duet with Asha Bhosle, and on screen this is performed by Amol Palekar and Shabana Azmi.

Ed Note: Our dear Pratap ji has added this information. The story of this film is based on the novel titled ‘Nishkriti’ written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. ‘Nishkriti’ means ‘chhutkaara’.
Ed Note: Dear Arun ji has further added that this novel is the last work of Sharat Chandra, and also his shortest novel. Further, the more appropriate flavor of the meaning of the word ‘Nishkirti’ is ‘deliverance’ or ‘setting free’.

In the story line, the couple and their two children have fallen on hard times, due to machinations and misunderstanding within a family of brothers. Utpal Dutt and Girish Karnad are brothers, both lawyers. Amol Palekar is their younger cousin, who stays in the same household. The envy between the wives of Amol Palekar and Girish Karnad forces Amol to leave the household and go to live in the village home of the family. The misunderstandings between the families reach a high pitch with legal action being initiated by Girish Karnad, at the behest of his wife, against Amol. Eventually, the eldest brother, Utpal Dutt, steps in, to iron out the problems. The family is reunited, with the caveat that Girish Karnad and his wife leave the household and move to another city.

The song is placed in the time when Amol and his family are relegated to the servant’s hut of the family’s village home, and the dishonest and unscrupulous supervisor of their family estate reduces the family to a hand-to-mouth situation. Amol has played the role of the youngest brother who is not perturbed even in the extreme circumstances. In this song, he is telling his ‘mann’, his own self, and also his two sons, that one should be happy and have a song on the lips, no matter what are the difficulties facing oneself.

The sensitive lyrics are from the pen of Yogesh and the softly paced and oh so relaxing composition is tuned by Bhappi Lahidi. A wonder strike that is so different from the ‘disco’ Lahidi that we are more familiar with.

Wishing both Basu Da and Yesudas, many more such celebrations to follow in the coming years.

And once again, congratulations to all members of this bandwagon, on the 139th century song. Surely, we have come a long way. And equally surely, we still have a long way to go. . .  Cheers.


Song – Gaao Mere Mann  (Apne Paraaye) (1980) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhappi Lahidi

Lyrics

gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
poora nahin hota kisi ka
yahaan har sapan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
bujhe koi aasha ka diya
to phir se jala le
dukhon se tu haar na raahi
kiye ja jatan
ho oo
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
rukenge na tere liye re
samay ke charan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

दुखों से तू हार ना राही
किए जा जतन

चाहे सूरज चमके रे चाहे
लगा हो ग्रहण

रो कर चलता है
हंस के तू चल

Blog Day : 3455 Post No. : 13857

The new year 2018 began yesterday. We started celebrating the birthdays of artists from the first day of the year itself, by discussing a Nana Patekar song. Nana Patekar is one of many artists who chose the new year day to be born. 🙂

As far as our regulars are concerned, they are not too far behind. They are just one day behind Nana Patekar. As many as three of our regulars, namely Pradeep Raghunathan, Peevesie’s mom and Sheela ji(wife of Avinash Scrapwala) are celebrating their birthdays today on 2 january 2018. We in this blog wish them all very happy birthdays.

We have just the right song available with us to greet them. This song is from “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975).

The songs of this movie, especially its title song used to be a big rage those days. Jaspal Singh made his mark as a playback singer with this movie.

Most songs from this movie were sung by lesser known singers, namely Jaspal Singh, Chandrani Mukherji, Hemlata etc. Songs sung by Jaspal Singh in the movie were the most popular songs. But this movie also had the voices of legendary singers, viz Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar utilised once each.

I have not seen the movie but I had listened to its songs. The songs were quite popular and would play on the loudspeakers every where. I still remember those days of 1975 when I would be going on my way from my home towards my school and nearing the railway footoverbridge over Ranchi Railway station when the title song of the movie would be blaring out from a loudspeaker located nearby.

I cannot believe that it was 42 years ago that I used to listen to the songs of “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975) on loudspeaker. That is nearly half a century ago. If I go to the same location now, hoping to relive those days, I am sure that I would feel let down. Most probably that place may have undergone a sea change, with concrete jungle having come up in that place which used to be an open field, fit to be used for playing cricket, among other uses. Even my school (where I used to go) has now been relocated.

The movie had nine songs in it. Six of them, including the duet by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle (Shyam abhimaani o shyaam abhimaani) has been covered in the blog.

The movie had a solo song by Kishore Kumar in it. It was one of the rare occasions where Ravindra Jain used Kishore Kumar’s voice. But he would always make Kishore Kumar’s voice count in his compositions. The most well known Kishore Kumar song composed by Ravindra Jain is the iconic “Chor Machaaye Shor” (1973) song- Le jaayenge le jaayenge dilwaale dulhaniya le jaayenge.

As I have not seen “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975), so I am not sure how various songs in the movie have been used. Lyrics of this Kishore Kumar song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala as far back as in 2012. Somehow this song has eluded being covered in the blog. I discover that this song is a “birthday” song. That way it is an appropriate song for the occasion of the birthdays of three of our regulars.

The picturisation shows this song lip synced by Madan Puri who is seen singing this song to celebrate the birthday of Sachin. Those were simple days when mostly children used to get to celebrate their birthdays in real as well as reel lives in India. 🙂

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

HFGK counts this song as one song though this song had two versions. Apart from the well known happy version, this song has a brief sad version of it too.

Here is wishing all our young at heart birthday kids a very happy birthday today.

The 25th of October is an important date for Hindi film music lovers. In fact, not just for them but for lovers of Urdu poetry too. For it is the anniversary of passing away of one of the industry’s foremost lyricists, Sahir Ludhianvi, who was highly regarded not just for lyrics but also for his poetry. In fact it was his poetry that brought him recognition early on – he just extended it to the film industry.

Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

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.

All numbers are unique unto themselves – inasmuch as each number has its own claim to fame just by being what it is. And but for the imagination and fancies applied by our minds, which at times picks on certain characteristics and binds some special stature to some of them, all these numbers would be as interesting, or for that matter disinteresting, as any other number. Let me quote the instance of a number that has now become famous as the ‘Hardy – Ramanujan Number’. This anecdote is attributed to a conversation in or about 1919 (wow, ninety seven years ago), that happened in London. Indian mathematician Srinivas Ramanujan, who was based in London for some time, was ill and confined to his bed at his residence. His friend, Godfrey Hardy, another mathematician (who had invited and arranged for Ramanujan’s travel etc. to London), came visiting him. The initial conversation was about Hardy’s journey to see Ramanujan.
