Hullo Atuldom

It is winter and the temperatures in Bangalore and adjoining regions have taken a dip. I am sure North India will be much colder, I don’t know what is the experience of those in western and eastern India. But then, winter is the feature for the entire Northern hemisphere at this time of the year.

We have categories on the blog, that songs are tagged under. The Category “Rain” and “Saawan” have around 86 and 109 posts/ songs respectively. “Saawan” is used to talk of rains and is also the month in the Hindu calendar, when the Indian sub-continent experiences heavy monsoon rains.

In sharp contrast we have only 2 posts for “Summer” category and 5 for the “Snowy Mountain” category. No separate category for winter, cold winds etc. Does that mean that there are no songs in Hindi films that are filmed in winter, when the cold winds blow etc.? No. I recall songs from “Junglee”, “Kasmir Ki Kali”, “Aap Ki Kasam” and hundreds of other films that have ever-so-popular songs that were filmed on the snowy slopes of the many hill-stations that the Himalayan range offers. But when songs from these movies were being posted on the blog, in the infancy stages of the blog i.e., Atulji may not have thought of this particular category; if he had, then this category would have had lots of songs. Today’s song will fit the bill for “Snowy Mountain”.

This song is from the 1992 release, Mani Ratnam directed and K. Balachander produced “Roja”. It had a cast of Pankaj Kapur, Madhoo (billed as Madhubala), Arvind Swamy, and a whole lot of South Indian actors. This is because “Roja” was made in Tamil and later its dubbed versions were released in other languages. The movie had some melodious songs that were written by Vairamuthu (in the Tamil original) and P.K.Mishra (for the Hindi dubbed version). The playback singers used (in Hindi) were Hariharan, Minmini, Sujatha Mohan, Shweta Rao, Baba Sehgal, S.P. Balasubramaniam, KS Chitra. The music director was A R Rehman.

“Roja” was the story of a gritty- young lady. The lady, Roja (Madhoo) is married to a man who was selected as a prospective groom for her older sister. But the to-be-groom (Rishi) takes a liking for Roja. She agrees to the marriage after getting to know that her older sister is happy that she was rejected (she had her heart set on marrying another guy). Roja settles in her husband’s (Arvind Swamy) home when she gets to know that he has been selected to go on deputation to Jammu-Kashmir for helping the army communication center with military intelligence. The young couple find themselves in alien yet beautiful land. Roja’s life turns upside-down when her husband is abducted by Kashmiri terrorists demanding the release of a leader of their’s in exchange. The movie shows how Roja runs from pillar-to-post to get assistance in rescuing her husband, specially when she has a language problem too- she can communicate only in Tamil. (This part got diluted in the Hindi-dubbed version though).

The song with this post happens when the young couple- Roja and Rishi- are exploring the snow clad Baramulla, and honeymooning. It is in the voices of SPB sir and K S Chitra.
The Tamil version of the song was sung by Sujatha Mohan and Unni Menon.

With this post we are wishing the music director, singer, Oscar-award winner A R Rehman on turning a year older today. In addition to the Oscars he has a few Filmfare and National awards to his name. Plus the government of India has conferred the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan on Rehman. We wish him health and happiness and hope to have lots of great music from him.


Song-Ye haseen waadiyaan ye khula aasmaan (Roja)(1992) Singers-K S Chitra, S P Balasubrahmaniam, Lyrics-P K Mishra, MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics

yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan
aa gaye hum kahaan
ai mere saajna
in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi
mujhko tum jo miley
har khushi mil gayi
tere hontho pe hai husn ki bijliyaan
tere gaalon pe hai zulf ki badliyaan
tere baalon ki khushboo se mehke chaman
sangmarmar ke jaisa yeh tera badan

mere jaanejaan yeh hai teri chaandni
chhed do tum aaj koi pyaar ki raagini
yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahaan ae mere saajna

yeh bandhan hai pyaar ka
dekho toote na sajni

yeh janmon ka saath hai
dekho chhoote na sajna
tere aanchal ki chhaanv ke taley
meri manzil mujhe mil gayi

teri palkon ki chhaanv ke taley
mohabbat mujhe mil gayi
yeh haseen vaadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahaan ae mere saajna
in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi
mujhko tum jo miley
har khushi mil gayi
yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan

aa gaye hum kahaan ae mere saajna

jee karta hai saajna
dil mein tumko bithha loon
aa masti ki raat mein
apna tumko bana loon

uthne lage hain toofaan kyon
mere seene mein ae sanam
tumhen chaahoonga dil o jaan se
meri jaane jaan teri kasam

yeh haseen waadiyaan yeh khula aasmaan
aa gaye hum kahaan
ai mere jaanejaan

in bahaaron mein dil ki kali khil gayi
mujhko tum jo miley
har khushi mil gayi

mere jaanejaan yeh hai teri chaandni
chhed do tum aaj koi pyaar ki raagini
yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan
aa gaye hum kahaan
ae mere saajna
yeh haseen waadiyaan
yeh khula aasmaan
aa gaye hum kahaan
ae mere saajna
