Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 81
————————————————–

OK, so finally ‘Anmol Ghadi’ got yippeee’d this week, on the very first day of the week. And Atul ji, still waiting for you to clear the mystery behind this yippeee.

Once again, a very prolific week, the pace of post updates continues in full swing. Except that one day this week, we scored only a single. But for the rest of the week, it was all sixes with one extra run from an overthrow.

The blog scored 38 posts this week. Of these 38, we had only one guest post for the week – by Santosh Ojha ji. A total of 36 films made their appearance, with two films scoring two appearances each. We had 1 film that reached yippeee status. A whopping 15 films made their debut this week. That is close to almost half the films that got featured that week.  Since that week was done with, of the 36 films featured, 26 films have been formally and fully yippeee’d. Ten of them are still awaiting their numbers to be fully showcased. Given below is the detailed chart for the week. You will notice a new column and new notations today. I will explain them later in this write up.

You may notice that I used the phrase ‘formally and fully’ to qualify the yippeee status of the films. The reason I used this phrase is the following. As we are making progress towards our ideal of bringing on board all the Hindi film songs, we do find ourselves against certain difficult limitations. These have to do with – one, non availability of certain songs, and two, erroneous or missing information about some films and songs. I will highlight these situations as we progressively face them. For this week, here are the difficult situations that I came across.

The first one is the film ‘Mukhdaa’ from 1951. This film debuted on our blog on 16th Sep ten years back. The film has 11 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. We have located and posted 9 of them over the past decade. The remaining two are practically untraceable. Firstly, of the 11 songs listed, one was never put on a gramophone record, as the producers planned for and contracted with HMV for only 5 discs, which means 10 songs in all. The song at serial no. 6 – “Dekho Jee Pehli Baar, Kiya Hai Tumse Pyaar” was never released on a gramophone record. Then comes a footnote in the Geet Kosh which states that one record, N36900 was ordered, but then cancelled later on. It never got published, although the songs were recorded. This record was supposed to carry the two songs at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale Mehlon Mein Hans Rahe Hain” and serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee, Palle Nahin Maal Jee”. So that would mean that we should have 3 missing songs and not 2.

But wait, here is one more interesting twist in the story. It seems that after cancelling the publication of the record N36900, the producers went ahead and commissioned one more record, with number N50008. Looking at the huge gap in the series number of the records, it is clear that the latter record (N50008) was ordered much later than 1951. Strangely, this newly ordered record now carried the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal. . .” and the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri, Meri Teri”. This latter song at serial no. 10 was already published and is available as one side of the record with number N36870, the flip side of which carries the song at serial no. 5 – “Neele Se Dupatte Pe Hain Peeli Peeli Dhaariyaan”. The net outcome of these, what I shall call – confusing decisions – is that the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri. . .” is now available on two distinct published gramophone records for this film. And the song at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale. . .” has got lost, probably forever. The saving grace is that the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee. . .” is now available. It might also have been lost forever, but for this confusing set of decisions, which saved this song for posterity. And so the songs at serial no. 6 (this one not planned at all for release on gramophone record) and the song at serial no. 3 (unpublished due to cancellation of one gramophone record), are likely never going to surface. They may still be existing on some original spool tapes from the original recordings, and/or they may be on the soundtrack of the film. However, since both these items are not yet available in public domain, and with very little likelhood that they will make an appearance in the future, we could label them as LFe (Lost Forever). That does leave us two songs short of ever declaring this film as yippeee’d.

Coming to the second similar instance, also from this week. The film is ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ from 1962. It had made its debut on our blog on 23rd Dec, 2008. The seventh song of this film was posted on 24th Sep, 2011. Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. The missing song is the one at serial no. 5 – “Sahil Ki Taraf Kashti Le Chal, Toofaan Ke Thapede Sehna Kya”. As per the listing, this song was recorded in the voice of Hemant Kumar. This song never got published on a gramophone record. Now eight total songs will completely fit on 4 gramophone discs. But the producer seems to have taken a decision to completely omit this song. In fact, the song at serial no. 6 – “Bhanwra Bada Naadaan Haaye”, makes appearance on two gramophone discs nos. N54036 and N54038, while the above mentioned song in Hemant Kumar’s voice has been completely axed from any publication. It does not exist in the film. The film information booklet lists this song, and that is just about it. Here is one more case where a song qualifies to be labeled as LFe. And that also leaves the film ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ one song short of being declared as yippeee’d.

Based on the above discussed circumstances, these two films will never reach the Yippeee status. So I have a proposal here to address this situation. In the face of such stern circumstances, I propose that we introduce a Yippeee variant status – ‘Conditional Yippeee’ – to be indicated as ‘Yc’ in our charts and tables. In such cases, when we come to the conclusion that it is (almost) impossible that one or more songs of a certain film will ever be traced, we may declare that film to be Conditinally Yippeee’d, once all the possibly available songs are accounted for on our blog. The proposal is presented for consideration of the team, and I would request other members to please present their views and comments. In the table above of the week’s status ten years ago, I am provisionally marking these two films as ‘Yc’, pending agreement by the team,

This week we have one more case of a partial missing song in a multi part / multi version scenario. In the case of the film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ from 1957. The main theme song of the film – “Chaand Ko Dekho Ji” / “Chaand Mere Aa Ja Re” – has one additional part, identified as the sad version. Details of this part are provided by dear Prakash ji, including the additional lyrics. Just that we as editors have not yet gotten around to update the post itself. In fact, the HFGK listing shows 7 songs, which include this sad version of the song. This sad version of the song is not released on gramophone discs, and is available only from the film itself. My effort is to get this post updated within a day, and be able to change the pending status of this film from ‘0.5’ to ‘0’. And by the way, the Geet Kosh listing has one incomplete information relating to this song. It lists Lata Mangeshkar as the singer of this part. However, as we view the video, we find that this part is in the voices of both Rafi Sb and Lata ji.

Let me come to the song for today. This discussion on errors and limitations has become quite long. I also wanted to write about the film ‘Doctor’ of 1941 and the related info error in the Geet Kosh. I encountered this error the previous week. But I will write about it in the next episode of this series.

‘Hercules’ of 1964, has quite a dubious distinction to note. The first song, the debut of this film, came on board on 18th September, 2010. Today, I bring on board the second song of this film. Interesting that this film has been in hibernation for a full decade, despite the fact that there are some wonderful songs pending for this film. As is evidenced by the song in this post – a Helen dance song in a royal darbaar setting. The words come from the pen of Anand Bakshi, the music is from the mind of N Datta and the singing voice is Asha Bhosle. On screen we see Dara Singh, as Hercules, in chains, possibly being prepared for execution. Other actors we see in this not so clear a video clip, are Nishi, BM Vyas, Maruti Rao, Leela Misra, P Kailash and Indira Billi.

Helen’s performance is her usual self – so wonderfully elegant and graceful, even as she gives a sensuous performance. The ease with which she is coordinating the dance movements, the lip syncing, the facial expressions et al – she is a master class all by herself.

I request the readers to please do comment on the proposed ’Conditional Yippeee’ status and the associated notation introduced in this week’s chart. Thanks.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 78
———————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago viz 13 september 2010 saw six songs getting covered. The fist post appeared at 6:06 AM whereas the sixth and final post of the day appeared at 17:37 AM. Six songs posted within 91 minutes. That is called making short work of the daily blog target ! 🙂

Here are the details of the six songs discussed on 9 september 2010:-

Blog Post number Song Movie Year of release Remarks
2957 Man letaa hai angdaayi Anmol Ghadi 1946 YIPPEED
2958 Haay re insaan ki majbooriyaan Ghoonghat 1960 7 songs covered out of 10
2959 Jhanan jhanjhanaa ke apni paayal Aashiq 1962 YIPPEED
2960 Chale jaanaa zaraa thahro Multiple version song Around the world 1967 YIPPEED
2961 Ba hosho hawaas mein deewaanaa Night in London 1967 YIPPEED
2962 One two three baby yaa yaa yaa Kismat 1968 YIPPEED

As can be seen from the above table, five movies out of six whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. “Anmol Ghadi”(1946) and “Kismat”(1968) got YIPPEED ten years back on this day viz on 13 september 2010 !

So, that leaves us with “Ghoonghat”(1960) as the sole movie eligible for today’s blog Ten year challenge.

As many as seven songs of “Ghoonghat”(1960) have been covered so far. Here are the details:-

Song Posted On
Laage naa moraa jiyaa 13.05.2009

Ye zindagi ka mausam aur ye samaa suhaanaa 24.03.2012
Meri pat raakho Giridhaari 8.09.2020

Here is the eighth song from Ghoonghat”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Helen and others. No, it is not a cabarat song, rather it is a proper desi dance performance, where Helen lip syncs in not just Hindi but also in Tamil, Bangla and Punjabi, accompanied by the appropriate regional dances as well.

The picturisation shows Helen and others on stage. Dancing legend Gopi Krishna also joins during the Tamil part of the song.

The audience seated in the front row include Pradeep Kumar, Bina Rai, Minu Mumtaz etc.

Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who has done a gallant job in attempting to note down the lyrics of all the languages. I request our knowledgeable readers to help suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 66
———————————————————————————–

Ten years back on 31 august 2010 (tuesday), the first post of the day appeared at 7:39 AM and the sixth and final post appeared on 9:42 AM.
Here are the details of these six songs from six movies:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ae jaane e jigar dil mein samaane aajaa Aaraam-1951 All songs covered
Ek main hoon ek meri beqasi ki shaam hai Taraanaa-1951 All songs covered

Husn e jaanaa idhar aa Saathi-1968 All songs covered
Koi aur duniyaa mein tumsaa haseen hai Pyaar Ki Kahaani-1971 02 songs posted

Four movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have already been YIPPEED. That leaves us with just two unYIPPEED movies namely “Naache Naagin Baaje Been”(1960) and “Pyaar Ki Kahaani”(1971) that are eligible for today’s Blog Ten Year Challenge.

“Naache Naagin Baaje Been” (1960) was produced by Devi Sharma and directed by Tara Harish for Janta Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Kumkum, Chandra Shekhar, K.N.Singh, Amar, Sunder, Parasram, Ratna, Sood, Kamal Mehra, Chandabi, Ratan Gurung, Rafiq, Indira Bansal, Helen, Agha etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. The movie made its debut in the blog ten years ago. Five songs from the movie have been covered so far as detailed below :-

Song Posted On
Beet gayi hai aadhi raat 31.08.2010
Ham jaan lutaa denge apni saajan ki jaan se pehle 23.10.2015
Main hoon gori naagan 30.112015
Le ke sahaaraa tere pyaar ka 04.04.2017
Gori naagan ban ke na chalaa karo 23.05.2018

Here is the sixth song from “Naache Naagin Baaje Been” (1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This song is puicturised as a dance song where a lady is seeen wooing her beau. When I watched the lady dressed in Maharashtrian style sari, I thought that she looked familiar but who was she ? Lyricist sender Prakashchandra also sends details of the song and the movie, and he had mentioned this song as picturised on Helen and Agha. Me bad ! One does not expect Helen to be dressed in a sari and one often struggles to identify her when she is dressed in Indian attires. 🙂

Prakashchandra has sent the lyrics (as mentioned above) while Avinash Scrapwala has sent the BTYC related details.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 62
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was in cruise mode, merrily covering six songs every day. 28 august 2010, the day exactly ten years ago was no exception. First song of the day got posted at 7:01 AM and sixth post at 8 :34 AM !

Ten years back the following songs were posted on the blog;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Kyaa bataaun muhabbat hai kyaa Parbat-1952 All songs covered
Dil ke phaphole jal uthe seene ke daag se Parichay-1954 03 songs posted
Tum ek baar muhabbat ka imithaan to lo Baabar-1960 All songs covered
Meri aankhon se koyi neend liye jaata hai Pooja Ke Phool-1964 All songs covered*
Binaa badraa ki bijuriyaa kaise chamke Bandhan-1969 04 songs posted
Saath mein pyaaraa saathi hai Dil Daulat Duniyaa-1972 03 songs posted

Three out of six movies have since been YIPPEED. Other three movies are still up for grabs as far as today’s blog ten year challenge is concerned.

So, here is a song from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972), the latest of the six movies, and perhaps the most obscure of the six movies that were covered ten years ago.

Three songs from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972) have been covered so far :-

Song Posted On
Saath mein pyaaraa saathi hai 28.08.2020
Masti aur jawaani ho 18.07.2013
Ruk meri raani…. o monalisa 18.07.2017

Here is the fourth song from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Lyrics is supposedly a joint effort of Hasrat Jaipuri and Neeraj (according to HFGK). Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Rajesh Khanna and Sadhana were in lead roles, this song was almost certainly picturised on them. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.
Mr Anekant, our knowledgeable reader informs us that the song was picturised on Jagdeep and Helen.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Following is the list of six songs from six movies that were covered on this day ten years ago (on 12 August 2010).

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Modern Girl-1961’.

I associate this movie with its popular duet ‘Ye mausam rangeen samaa’ which was written by Gulshan Bawra. I was not aware of others songs from this movie. But, thanks to the ‘blog ten-year challenge’ I get to listen the other songs from this movie now. 😊

‘Modern Girl-1961’ was directed by R. Bhattacharya for ‘Rainbow Movies’. It was produced by B.D. Narang. It had Pradeep Kumar, Sayeeda Khan, Smriti Biswas, Nalini Chonkar and Johny Walker, with Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Amar, Raj Kumar, Amrit Rana, Jagdish Kanwal, Helen, Protima Devi, Leela Mishra, Lilian, Sheela Vaz, Meena Parel, Tun Tun, Bela Parmanik, Sarita Devi, Daya Devi, Begum Bai, Nimmo, Aruna, Asha, Baby Farida, Bela, Rita, Sohanlal, Uma Dutt and others.

As per HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) this movie had seven songs composed by Ravi. Lyrics were written by Rajinder Krishan- four songs, and S.H. Bihari, Qamar Jalalabadi and Gulshan Bawra had penned one song each for this movie.

Mukesh, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, the following four songs from ‘Modern Girl-1961’ have been posted on the blog;

Today’s song is club-dance song picturized on Helen who is lip-syncing Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also seen in the picturization of this song are Pradeep Kumar, Johny Walker, Madan Puri and others.

Blog Day :

4390 Post No. : 15756

Today, 25th July is the 24th anniversary of the passing away of GS Kohli, one of the most talented musician and music director in Hindi cinema’s Golden age.

Gursharan Singh Kohli was born in 1928. As a child and young man, he learnt to play dholak and many other musical instruments. He was just 24 years when he started working with the famous music director OP Nayar, as his assistant. He continued to be Nayar Sb’s assistant music director till the end of 1960s, even though he had started his own career as an independent music director with the film ‘Lambe Haath’ in 1960.

He went on to create wonderful music for films like ‘Shikari’ (1963), ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ (1965) and ‘Namaste ji’ (also 1965). Despite scoring some of the most popular hit songs of the 1960s, his career remained confined to B and C grade cinema. His last film as an independent music director was ‘Jaalsaaz’ in 1969.

Today we present this enchanting cabaret song from the 1966 film ‘Do Matwaale’. The song is penned by Farooq Qaiser and is sung by Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Helen, as a club dance song, in the inimitable way that only Helen can perform. Present in the scene also we can see the actress Malika, and two Sikh gentlemen, who actually are Randhawa and Madan Puri in disguise.

The lyrics of this song were sent in by Prakashchandra ji.

Another very enamoring dance number by Helen, who performs to the music of GS Kohli.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 33
—————————————————————————

When I look back at 2010, the blog posting rate was surprisingly similar to the post rate of 2020. Every day one or two posts appeared during 2010. The blog clocked around 60 odd posts per month. Same is happening even in 2020.

Coming to this date 10 years ago, viz 3 june 2010, two posts were discussed in the blog as below :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tere binaa zindagi se koi shikwa nahin Aandhi (1975) All songs covered
Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake

Sunahri Naagin (1963) 07 of 08 songs posted

“Sunahri Naagin-1963” was directed by Babubhai Mistry for Everest Pictures, Bombay. Its story and screenplay were by Pt Madhur and Vishwanath Pandey. Dialogues were by C K Mast. It was a fantasy movie which had Mahipal, Helen, Sulochana, Anwar Hussain, Sapru, Priti Bala aka Zeb Rehman, Ulhas, Paul Sharma, Jeevankala, Bela Bose, Madhumati, Sheela Kashmiri, Kamal Mehra etc in it.

When I was going through the above, I thought that I was going through the credits of “Parasmani”(1963). Both movies were created by the same team, and even the star cast had much in common. Mahipal was the hero in both the movies, Here in ‘Sunahri Naagin'(1963), we have Helen in female lead instead of Geetanjali.

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the seven songs covered in the blog:-

S N Song Post number in blog Date of posting
1 Been na bajaana jaadu na jagaanaa 2342 12-March-2010
2 Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon 2345 14-March-2010
3 Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke 2449 16-March-2010
4 Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake 2511 3-June-2010
5 Main to ho gayi re badnaam 14495 16-July-2018
6 Yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye 15482 16-March-2020
7 Donon haathhon se dil kyun sambhaala hai 15493 24-March-2020

From the table, it can be seen that the movie made its debut in march 2010 and I discussed three songs from the movie in that month. Another song was discussed in june 2010. Then this movie was not taken up again in the blog for eight years.

This year, two songs have been discussed and one of these two songs was a Blog Ten Year Challenge song.

Today, another blog ten year challenge opportunity presents itself. On this occasion, here is this lovely song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963). It is sung by Mukesh and Lata. The song is picturised on Mahipal and Helen. This song appears to be the song corresponding to Chori chori jo tumse mili to log kyaa kahenge of “Parasmani”(1963).

Not only are the singers same in the two songs, even the lyricist 9Farooque Kaiser is the same. Parasmani had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Here Kalyanji Anandji are the music director. Though HFGK is silent about the assistant music directors, it appears to me that Laxmikant Pyarelal may have been the assistant music director in this movie. I can notice Laxmikant Pyarelal stamp in this song.

It is a lovely song to listen to. Its lyrics and details were sent jointly by Prakashchandra and Avinash Scrapwala. Prakashchandra gave valuable background information on this movie whereas Avinash Scrapwala was the catalyst behind this Blog Ten Year Challenge Post.

With this song, all the eight songs of “Sunahri Naagin”(1963) are covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEEED in the blog. I notice that “Parasmani”(1963) too had been YIPPEED with its equivalent song viz Chori chori jo tumse mili to log kyaa kahenge . Such coincidences occur in the blog all the time.

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 24
———————————————–

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (Bangla film, 1959) was written and directed by Prafulla Chakraborty. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Chhabi Biswas, Anup Kumar, Chhaya Devi, Tulsi Chakraborty, Bikash Roy, Shyam Laha, Sheela Paul, Helen, Jahar Roy etc. I have watched the video of a moderately edited film on one of the video sharing platforms. Probably, the film’s VHS tape was damaged as I found some  ‘jumps’ in the continuity of the film’s story. Unfortunately, English sub-titles are not available. A short synopsis on the cover of the VCD of the film helped me to understand the film’s story in a proper perspective.

The film opens with Raja (Uttam Kumar), a small-time thief coming out of the jail and Bhola (Anup Kumar), his close associate receives Raja outside the jail. Both of them discuss the plan for a bigger heist.

One day, Mala (Sabitri Chatterjee) arrives in their neighbourhood with her father (Tulsi Chakraborty) to reside in the locality where Raja and Bhola stay.  In the first meeting with them at the time of getting down from the bus, Bhola helps Mala and her father in bringing out their belongings from the bus. But in doing so, he picks her father’s wallet. Finding his wallet missing, Raja decides to pay the fares on their behalf to impress them to be of helping nature. Within few days, Raja and Bhola became closer to Mala’s father, though Mala keeps  a distance without offending them.

Mala is the only earning member by working in the theatre. She is not aware of Raja’s real identity. He tries hard to impress her to gain her attention.  In the meantime, Gobardhan (Bikas Roy) has been trying to stalk Mala in his efforts to make her join films. She tells Raja and Bhloa about her problems with Gobardhan which results in both of them punishing him on more than one occasions. All these actions of the duo create good impression on Mala who starts liking Raja.

In line with their plan to strike something big, Raja and Bhola get acquainted with a businessman Datta (Chhabi Biswas) and impress him into lending them money for their business which does not exist. Datta gives them the financial support as well as goods with a proviso that if  they sell the goods,  he would give them concession. However, being thieves and cheaters, both of them decide neither to return the money nor the goods.

One day, Raja and Bhola are seen picking someone’s pocket in a bus in which Mala is also travelling. She comes to know the real side of Raja. She starts avoiding him. Having lost Mala, Raja decides to reform himself and becomes a changed man. He gives up pickpocketing and cheating business much against the advice of his close friend, Bhola. And then Bhola also falls in line with Raja as for him, his unimpeachable friendship with Raja is more important than his notorious vocation.

Raja approaches businessman Datta and tells him the actual truth about his activities and his love for Mala. The fact is that Datta was already aware of Raja and Bhola’s nefarious activities. He was handling with a reformist approach by testing them with financial help to start a business and become the good citizens.  Datta goes and meets Mala and asks her to forgive Raja. Raja once again regains Mala’s love and the film has a happy ending.

When I watched this film, I was getting a feeling that I was watching a Bollywood film. The story of the film was nowhere near to the quality of most of the Bangla films with strong story lines. However, to the credit of the film’s director, Prafulla Chakraborty and of the main actors like Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Anup Kumar and the veteran Chhabi Biswas, there was not much of dull moments in the film. The director ensured that Uttam Kumar and Anup Kumar in the roles of petty thieves with their light comical performances remained the likeable characters for the audience in their roles throughout the film.

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (1959) has 3 songs all of which sound like Bollywood songs insofar as musical compositions are concerned. Of the three songs, one song is in Hindi and the remaining two Bengali songs are solos sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Incidentally, Manna Dey sung for Uttam Kumar for the first time in this film in which he had also done yodelling.

I am presenting the only Hindi song in the film, “Tere Liye Aaya Hai Le Ke Koi Dil’ sung by Geeta Dutt. The song is picturised on Helen as a dance song in a  thieve’s den in which Uttam Kumar is present. The song is written by Naqsh Layallpuri. The musical score is that of Sudhin Dasgupta, the younger brother of Kamal Dasgupta. The tune of the song sounds somewhat similar to one of the Hindi film songs of the 50s which I am not able to recall. The song has  OP Nayyar style of composition.

Enjoy one more Helen song among the umpteen songs, Geeta Dutt sang for her in Hindi films.

(Based on Audio Version)

tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
kitne haseen hain ye palkon ke saaye
dekh tujhe koi ishaaron se bulaaye
kitne haseen hain ye palkon ke saaye
dekh tujhe koi ishaaron se bulaaye
rahegi na pheeki
bahaaren zindagi ki
aa tujh ko khushi ki
dikhaa doon manzil
rahegi na pheeki
bahaaren zindagi ki
aa tujh ko khushi ki
dikhaa doon manzil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya. . .

तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
रहेगी ना फीकी
बहारें ज़िंदगी की
आ तुझको खुशी की
दिखा दूँ मंज़िल
रहेगी ना फीकी
बहारें ज़िंदगी की
आ तुझको खुशी की
दिखा दूँ मंज़िल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
कहती हैं फसाना
निगाहें मस्ताना
तुझे तो समझाना
बड़ा है मुश्किल
कहती हैं फसाना
निगाहें मस्ताना
तुझे तो समझाना
बड़ा है मुश्किल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

जलवे दिखाती यूं नज़रें बचाना
कर के बहाना किसी को तरसाना
जलवे दिखाती यूं नज़रें बचाना
कर के बहाना किसी को तरसाना
छोड़ ये अदाएं
जो दिल को जलाएं
आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
छोड़ ये अदाएं
जो दिल को जलाएं
आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया. . .

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) was directed by Babubhai Mistry. The movie had Mahipal, Helen, Anwar, Pratibha, Sapru, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Ajit, Habib, Shyam Kumar, Ragini, Bir Sakuja, K N Singh, Sulochana, Tun Tun etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. I am sue that Laxmikant Pyarelal were the assistants in this movie seeing the resemblence in music with “Parasmani”(1963).

The song is picturised as a dance song on Helen who is seen performing for Anwar Hussain playing a royal. Among others in the picture, one can notice Edwina too, playing a maid standing silently.


Song-Donon haathhon se dil kyun sambhaala hai(Sunahri Naagin)(1963) Singer-Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai
donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai
aaj lagta hai
aaj lagta hai kuchh hone waala hai
aaj lagta hai kuchh hone waala hai
donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai

bahki bahki nazar
bahke bahke kadam
bahki bahki nazar
bahki bahki nazar
bahke bahke kadam
daal ke munh pe zulfon ko aaye hain hum
dal ke muh pe zulfon ko aaye hain hum
teri mehfil mein
teri mehfil mein humse ujaala hai
teri mehfil mein humse ujaala hai
aaj lagta hai ae
aaj lagta hai kuchh hone waala hai
donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai

chupke chupke sahen kaise kaise sitam
chupke chupke sahen
chupke chupke sahen kaise kaise sitam
chain aaya na pal bhar tumhaari kasam
chain aaya na pal bhar tumhaari kasam
toone kis din ka
toone kis din ka badla nikaala hai
toone kis din ka badla nikaala hai
aaj lagta hai ae
aaj lagta hai kuch hone waala hai
donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai

jaanti hoon teri saari jaadugari
jaanti hoon teri
jaanti hoon teri saari jaadugari
pyaar jhootha tera preet jhoothi teri
pyaar jhootha tera preet jhoothi teri
munh pe kahti hoon
munh pe kahti hoon dil tera kaala hai
munh pe kahti hoon dil tera kaala hai
aaj lagta hai
aaj lagta hai kuchh hone waala hai
aaj lagta hai kuchh hone waala hai
donon haathon se dil kyun sambhaala hai

“Baazi”(1968), not to be confused with the well known “Baazi”(1951) was directed by Moni Bhattacharya for Golden Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Helen, Ansari, Nazir Hussain, Ullhas, Chans Usmani, Amar, Manmohan, Keshto Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Aa mere galey lag jaa o jaane jaana 7860 9-Apr-2013
2 Pyaar ki ye baaten hamko na samjhaao 7949 21-Apr-2013
2 Ek anaar do beemaar badi mushqil hai 15143 29-July-2019
2 Dil tootaa roye nainaa 15440 17-Feb-2020

Here is the fifth and final song from “Baazi”(1968). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

This song is quite a remarkable song. It is picturised as a stage performance song on Helen and Waheeda Rehman. Helen plays evil queen and Waheeda Rehman her daughter. The evil queen regards herself as the prettiest female around and she would not hesitate to get prettier females killed, even if she happens to be her own daughter.

This is a very long song, more than ten minutes long. The picturisation also shows several small time actors as well.

I think that this song must be one of a kind for lyricist Shakeel Badayuni too. This must be one of the very few Helen dance songs for him.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung five female duets in the movies of 1968. Four of these duets are already covered in the blog. So, with this song, all the five female duets of Lata Mangeshkar from movies of 1968 are covered.

With this song, “Baazi”(1968) joins movies that have all their songs covered in the blog and the movie thus gets YIPPEED.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Main haseena naazneena (Baazi)(1968) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

nigaahon se main kheloon
arre jisko bhi main dekhoon
wo jaan de de wahin
wahin een
main sameena mahajabeena
mujhmein kya kya nahin een een
mujhme kya kya nahin
nahin een een

pyaar ki main hoon ik daastaan
mere dam se hai duniya jawaan
main nahin to bahaaren kahaan
mere bas mein hai saara jahaan

main hoon shola
main hoon shabnam
main hoon naghma
main hoon sargam
aa aa aa
jhuke hain mere aage

ye aasmaan aur zameen zameen een

o main haseena
main sameena
koi mujhsa nahin een
mujhmein kya kya nahin

o main haseena
main sameena
koi mujhsa nahin een
mujhmein kya kya nahin
