This article is the 200th writeup of Raja in the blog.

Blog Day : 3569 Post No. : 14303

It’s been exactly five weeks since my last post here – but somehow it feels much longer. I’m reminded of that famous dialogue from Aandhi (1975) – “waise to ammavas pandrah din ki hoti hai, lekin is baar bahut lambi thi.” 🙂 These five weeks felt like five months.

One possible reason for this is that this happens to be my 200th post on this blog. So I’ve been on 199 for 5 weeks. Even Mudassar Nazar would be proud of my achievement. 🙂 Since this is IPL season, it’s also safe to say that franchisees wouldn’t exactly be falling over each other, outbidding each other to try to buy me at an IPL auction. 🙂

Not that I haven’t been nudged or reminded about this.

When I sent in my previous post, Atul told me it was my 199th and nudged me to get the 200th soon.

Peevisie’s Mom called me a while ago and reminded me of this.

One of Atul’s recent posts also nudged me (hint, hint!) to run that quick single.

And our Atulite whatsapp group also decided that it was high time.

And so I too decided today – yes, it is high time. This is unacceptable, even by Mudassar standards.

So here is the post – with due apology to everyone for this 5-week delay. And thanks to all who nudged me along the way. I needed it.

Actually, I had planned this 200th much earlier. Since I usually pick anniversaries for my posts, my first idea was Farooque Sheikh’s anniversary. That didn’t happen. Then, I’d planned for Jeetendra’s birthday. On both occasions I’d finalized the song – but, for a variety of reasons that I will not get into right now, I never got around to writing the post. No excuses though – if Atul can write up and post songs every single day, I just cannot have an excuse for taking five weeks for one post. 🙂

I see that these songs aren’t posted yet, so I can still write them up – no need for a specific occasion. In fact, the Jeetu song would be quite suitable for this post too – but I’m going with this particular one because it happens to have Moushumi Chatterjee in it too – and it is Moushumi’s birthday today. The Jeetu song can wait.

The song I’ve picked for today is an iconic song for a particular occasion – the baaraat in a wedding.

When I was very young, the song “meri pyari beheniya banegi dulhaniya” became very popular. Thanks to my name, I used to be constantly teased “bhaiya raja bajaayega baaja”.

This was in addition to another “baaraat” song for which I used to be teased – the famous “raja ki aayegi baaraat” from Aah (1953).

These were both regulars at any baaraat.

And then there was “ghodi pe hoke savaar”, today’s song.

It also became a very popular song for baaraat occasions – especially if the bridegroom was on a horse. The words suit the occasion perfectly, so it was only natural this song would play on the occasion.

“Ghodi pe hoke savaar” was not only popular then – I suspect, it’s still popular. Which is why I was very surprised to discover that it had not yet been posted on this blog. I know Atul has a category along the lines of “how come this song is not yet posted yet”. This song is the mother of all songs in that category, considering it’s almost ten years for this blog now. 🙂

In fact, this film “Ghulam Begum Baadshah” (1973) has not made an entry yet on the blog. So this is a debut for this film here. There’s a 1956 film by the same name which has songs here but, for this film, this is the first.

For me, another category that this song slips into – but is not a recognized category here – is “this song is in THIS film?”.

I’d heard this song umpteen times in my life – but never really got to know the name of the film it was from.

And then, a few years ago, I saw a film “Ghulam Begum Baadshah” (1973) prompted to me on youtube. It piqued my interest – I’d never heard of this film before, it was a 1970s film, it had Moushumi in it (I quite like Moushumi) – so I decided to give it a go.

When the prelude to the song started, I thought it sounded very familiar. And then when the song started, I was totally in this “ye gaana IS film ka hai?” mode. It was a very pleasant surprise.

It wasn’t the only one.

I remember that even the film turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Ok, I had zero expectations from it (that’s usually how I avoid disappointment :-)), but even so, it held my interest to the very end.

I remember there were scenes of patriarchy that annoyed me but what I liked most about the film was Moushumi and her role. From what I remember of her role, it had a lot of spunk.

As we know, in many movies, especially in earlier eras, the women are shown as weaker than the men. They need to be protected, they are subservient, they often don’t even have a mind of their own. They’re subdued, they’re shy. They’re not often shown as smart, thinking women.

In this film, from what I remember of it (I don’t remember the details well), Moushumi is shown as anything but weak. She gives as good as she gets, refusing to cower down to bullying. And when she is in a difficult situation, she finds her own way to get out of it, instead of depending on the male characters to solve her problems for her.

This is what I liked most about the film. And there’s a nice twist at the end too.

The film has Kumud Chugani too – always nice to see her in a film as well.

So if you haven’t watched this film – and want to watch a 1970s film – you could give it a shot. But don’t shoot me if you don’t like it – apni apni pasand. And I don’t claim to have high standards. 🙂

The song itself is by Rafisaab – and considering it’s an early 70s song, it was during his “lean” period. But even during this period, he had popular songs like this one – and “teri galiyon mein na rakhenge kadam” and “aaj mausam bada be-imaan hai”.

I think he does full justice to the song – singing it with gusto, as you’d expect on the occasion of a baaraat. The way midway in the song he pronounces “ghodi” is deliberately upbeat.

The lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan, music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

I hope you enjoy listening to this song as much as I do.

Once again, a very happy birthday to Moushumi Chatterjee. I think I’ve written a full post on her earlier – she was one of my favourite heroines in the 70s.

Whew! Got that 200th out of the way. Relief! 🙂 And thanks for tolerating me for these 200 posts.

“Do Premi”(1980) was directed by Raj Khosla for Shalini Films, Bombay. This “Social” movie, which was based on a novel penned by Gulshan Nanda, had Rishi Kapoor, Moushumi Chatterjee, Om Prakash, I.S. Johar, Deven Verma, Geeta Behl, Roopesh Kumar, Gautam Sarin, Master Bhagwan, Aruna Irani, K.N. Singh, Trilok Kapoor, C.S. Dubey, Nawab, Rajni Luthra, Raj Kishore, Kundan, Piloo Wadia, Pal Sharma, Manmauji, Dinu Harish, Mansaram, Noor Dewasi, R R Somaiyya, Uma Khosla, Anita Khosla, Reena Khosla etc in it, with a new discovery called Raj Bharti in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Here is the first song from “Do Premi”(1980) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Mausami Chatterji as a horse riding song on snow.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm as far back as in 2011 and I had planned to cover this song at that time only. I do not know how this song managed to remain unposted all these years. It was lying in the drafts folder of the blog for all these days.

Better late than never. With this song, “Do Premi”(1980) makes its debut in the blog.

“Miss Frontier Mail”(1936) was produced under the banner of Wadia Movietone and was directed by Homi Wadia. The star cast included Fearless Nadia, Sardar Mansur, John Cawas, Sayani Atish, Jaal Khambata. Gulshan,  Jaidev, Master Mohammed, Meenu Cooper, Bashir Qawwal, Munchi Thoothi etc.

Mr Sadanand Kamath, our beloved inhouse HFM researcher has given some interesting information about this movie. He informs that the movie was originally named “Frontier Mail”. Frontier mail which used to run between Bombay and Peshawar was the most prestigious train of BBCI Railways. The promotional posters of the movie carried the picture of a train crash. BBCI offcials took exception to that. In order not to displease the BBCI officials, The movie makers changed the name of the movie to “Miss Frontier Mail” and carried the disclaimer that the movie was about the adventures of a lady and had nothing to do with the train.

The story of the movie, as reconted by Mr Sadanand Kamath is as following:-

The Deputy Station Master at a railway station is murdered by a masked man. He escapes from the scene just before the Station Master Maganlal (Master Mohammed) arrives. Maganlal touches the knife which has been used by the masked man to kill the deputy. The police arrest Maganlal for the murder. His daughter Savita (Nadia) and son Jayant (Jaidev) is informed by their uncle, Shyamlal (Sayani Atish) about the news of their father’s arrest.

Savita is fond of hunting, playing tennis and racing fast cars while Jayant is an amateur film maker. Soon Jayant and his friend (Munchi Thoothi) get involved in the villain’s evil design and manage to film the mask man’s gang readying to blow up a bridge. The masked man dynamites the bridge as he has been contracted to do so by a man who wants to promote his airline business. However, Shyamlal tries to implicates Sunder (Sardar Mansur), son of a railway official, for the crime.

There is also a gangster’s moll, Gulab (Gulshan) who is romantically linked first with Shyamlal and then with Kishore (John Cawas), one of the gang members of the masked man. Both Gulab and Kishore are reformed and they side with Savita and her brother, Jayant in hunting down the masked man.

Sunder has a soft corner for  Savita and rushes to help her in dealing with rail gangs and murders. He and Savita are involved in several chases culminating in a fight scene on top of a speeding train where Savita fights the gang alongside Sundar on her bare hands successfully. At last, the identity of the masked man is revealed. He is none other other than Savita’s uncle Shyamlal. Ultimately, Shyamlal is killed by the police while he is trying to escape in a plane.

This movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past. Here are their details:-

Here is the fourth and final song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meenu Cooper, credited as Meenu the mystic. Lyricist is not known. Music is composed by Master Mohammad.

All the four songs in the movie, including the one under discussion were picturised on the same set. The song is a light hearted song where the artist talks about his experiences of betting on horses in the race course.

I have failed to get many words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, “Miss Frontier Mail”(1936) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) was directed by Raj Khosla for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay, the home production of Pradeep Kumar. The movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Shashikala, Rehman, B Nandi, Jagdeep, Nazeer Hussain, Tuntun etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised as a ghoda gaadi song, and the lip syncer is addressing the ghoda in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Chal beta left chal beta right(Do Dilon Ki Daastaan)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-O P Nayyar

Not being a speaker of Hindi, I know that I miss a great deal of nuance in both song and storyline in not understanding the lyrics to Hindi film songs. I am sure that is the case here too, but all the same the picturization of this song is so packed with information that for once I don’t really feel that deprived. His trademark lack of subtlety is one of Manmohan Desai’s greatest gifts to non-Indian fans of Hindi cinema, as is his trademark lunacy to all of mankind. An abundance of both mark this song as one of my favorites.

Kishore Kumar was around in the Hindi movie playback scene for two decades from 1948 to 1968 but all these while he was on the fringes. But a combination of many circumstances, that are well chronicled, ensured that changes of epic proportions took place in the Hindi movies schemes of things in late 1960s. Whe the commotion was over and things settled down, the old order had changed giving way to the new. The old timers (heroes, singers, music directors) suddenly found themselves upstaged and evicted from the scene in the new order.
