13/10/2020 – 33rd death anniversary of Kishore Kumar
——————————————————————————–

Today is that day when we all remember the phenomenal Kishore Kumar. I should have planned ahead, but could not do so. Firstly I am working on so many posts at once that it is becoming a blur what is done and what is not. Secondly, I was under the weather for the whole weekend, and antibiotics make me more blurred than anything else.

Well, a post is to be done so one must look for a song. There are scores of songs to choose from. I have thought of a song from “Kaaran”, but I found today that it is already posted. Next I thought of the song from Poonam(1981) “main hoon haseena khol darwazaa dil ka”, which is not posted, but it turned out to be Amit Kumar’s song. It is possible for me to confuse Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar songs, as both sing in the same style and have similar voices. For example for a long time I was under the impression that bade achche lagte hain from Baalika Badhu is Kishore Kumar singing.

Then I looked for songs in the year 1980, thinking how there were so many songs which Kishore Kumar sang with Mohammed Rafi sahab. There was a pattern there where songs of major film in 1979, 1980 and 1981,in movies like, Shaan, Abdulla, Dostana, Naseeb, Karz, The Burning Train, Jaani Dusham, Kaala paththar, Raajput, The Great Gambler, Aap ke deewane, Aap to aise na thhe, Aas Paas, Bulandi, Ham Paanch, Raam Balram, Swyamvar , Kaalia, Khuda Qasam, Deedar-e-Yaar etc. were divided among the two of them.

Not specifically looking for Rafi-Kishore song, almost decided on a background Kishore solo from “Apne Paraaye”, which is a sad song, with everyone crying (there are many characters including Shabana Azmi) except Amol Palekar, who is smiling in his inimitable way. This is a “afsardaa” or a despairing category song.

But I moved beyond this one too and have landed on a song from “Zabardast” (1985). I am glad to be listening and viewing this song. I have not seen this movie either, but it was a multi-starrer of a kind and four of those stars are present in this outdoor picnic song. What with school kids carrying colour full flags, school bus, Rajeev Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri with an umbrella as a prop, Bagpiper like music in the interlude, and two cars on Table land of Panchgani.

Give me such songs anytime, I prefer these type of songs to club, party or dance songs. The song starts with Rati Agnihotri and Rajeev Kapoor arguing on Table land, Sunny Deol and Jayaprada march in with the school kids carrying flags. Sunny Deol hands over the white flag to Rati Agnihotri as a peace offering and Rajeev Kapoor starts singing the song. The Umbrella prop is visible throughout.

Song is a solo by Kishore Kumar, entirely sung on screen by Rajeev Kapoor, who is trying to woo Rati Agnihotri. Sunny Deol and Jaya Prada are also present and looking on. A good, catchy and feel good song, composed by R. D. Burman and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This movie is making its debut here with this song. Out of total 2709 songs recorded by Kishore Kumar 1209 are posted in the blog.
A tribute to the ‘harfanmaula’ on this Remembrance Day.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 105# In Remembrance – Kishore Kumar #
—————————————- ——————————————-

Today 13th October’2020 is the thirty-third ‘Remembrance Day’ of the legendary singer Kishore Kumar.
It was on 13th October’1987 that he left this world at the age of fifty-eight only (04.08.1929-13.10.1987) leaving his family, followers and fans shocked, grief-stricken and heart-broken.

On this occasion as a tribute to him here is a song from ‘1976’ movie ‘Aaj Ka Ghar’.

I was not aware of this movie earlier until I came across this song a few years back. I guess this must be a lesser known or may be even an obscure movie (though it is now available on internet and uploaded three months back (the link which I saw).

‘Aaj Ka Ghar-1976’ was directed by Surendra Shailaj for ‘Shi Adarsh Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Jaymala. Surendra Sinha was the production controller for of this movie.

It had Jaymala, Shreeram Lagoo, Romesh Sharma, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Baby Mona, Jalal Agha, Madan Puri, I.S. Johar, Chandrashekhar, Ramesh Deo, Master Tito and A.K. Hangal. They were supported by K.K. Purohit, Ilaben, Neelam, Jassu Ben, Jagirdar, Nazmu, Lata Sahni, Chhotu, Vinay, Hansa, Jagmohan Juneja, Mohan Thakur, Duggal, A.U. Khatri and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by B.K. Adarsh whereas the basic idea was by Harin Mehta. Editing of this movie was done by Ravi Patankar. Dialogues and lyrics were written by M.G. Hashmat and revised dialogues were written by Surendra Shailaj (who directed the movie).

Music of this movie was composed by music duo Anil-Arun who composed music for many successful Marathi movies from 1971-1991. Both of them worked independently as well as a ‘team’ for Marathi movies. They also worked as assistants (music arranger) for S.D. Burman and also worked as assistants for may Hindi movies jointly as well as independently.

Anil of Anil Arun is the famous music composer and arranger Anil Mohile whereas Arun Paudwal (spouse of Anuradha Paudwal) was music director. However, as Arun Paudwal passed away in 1991 the pair was broken.

Arun Paudwal also composed music for the ‘1992’ movie ‘Meera Ka Mohan’ which was released after his death. And thereafter Anil Mohile continued to give music to Marathi Movies. He also arranged music for more than hundred programs of Lata Mangeshkar and many Hindi movies too. He passed away on 1st February’2012. Lata Mangeshkar penned a heartfelt condolence on his death as he was very close to the Mangeshkar family.

Coming back to the songs of today’s movie the movie had only three songs-one solo each by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal and one duet of Anuradha Paudwal and Adolf.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.12.1976.

Today’s song is a back-ground song sung by Kishore Kumar and written by M.G. Hashmat. Music is composed by Anil-Arun (I guess this the only Hindi movie they jointly composed music for).

They make their debut on the blog with the movie also making its debut on the blog.

In the few initial posts in this series I had presented some background songs sung by Kishore Kumar. I think it would be interesting to compile a list of such background songs he sung in Hindi movies and that gives us an interesting topic for another post in the future.

Secondly when I came back from Kenya after finishing the project there, I had planned that I will surely visit Khandwa on at least two important dates i.e. 4th August and 13th October as the Kishore fans there always have special programs on these dates, however due to the current situation I doubt if the programs would be held there.

Also couple of years back we had heard that the ancestral home of Kishore Kumar in Khandwa is either sold or bought by somebody and it is going to be renovated due to its dilapidated condition. I am not aware of its present status now(or if it has been taken over by the state government as some rumors were there?). But I will always cherish the memories my earlier visits to Khandwa to this place and the Kishore Kumar memorial there on the Khandwa-Indore road.

Remembering the ‘versatile genius’ Abhas Kumar Ganguly – Kishore Kumar today and paying our tributes, let us listen to one of his songs …

I have not watched this movie. But, from the video of the song available it seems that the song gets played in parts in the movie at various situations and twists and turns in the story of the movie.

However, the happy ‘antaraa’ is played in the beginning of the movie (with titles, as I have watched the titles) and is repeated in the end of the movie where we have a ‘happy ending’ 🙂

I hope that you like this song …

Chorus

Lyrics

(played in background with titles)

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar
Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar
Aaj ka ye ghar
aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraake pee gaya
Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraake pee gaya
Kaaton se bhi uljha magar
Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal
Zindagi ka Safar
Dekh lo ik nazar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

(Lyrics as per video link)

Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar
Jaane kyon lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar
Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar
Jaane kyon lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar
aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein
Kaisi ye aandhi chali
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein
Kaisi ye aandhi chali
Kyon tod di jhonkon ne
Gham ke shaakh se khilti kali
Chal diya baaghbaan bhi
Kali raund kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Ae aasmaan ye to bataa
Ye kis khata ki di sazaa
Kyun gaya apna hi dil mera tod kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

meri mamtaa ki nishaani ee
bin mitaaye mit gayi
meri mamtaa ki nishaani ee
bin mitaaye mit gayi
ik deep ki thhi raushni
kyon bin bujhaaye bujh gayi ee
naa wo geet (?)
naa wo geet
naa wo dhun
naa wo swar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa

Gardishon mein waqt ki hain
Zindagi ke kaafile ae ae
Aa aa aa aa aa
Gardishon mein waqt ki hain
Zindagi ke kaafile
Dil se lagaaya kal jinhen
Hain aaj unse faasle
Chha gaya andhkaar
Ab main jaaun kidhar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

zindagi ki kashmakash se
toot kar jaaun kahaan
main chhoot kar is qaid se
jaaun bhi to jaaun kahaan
sholaa ban jal uthhi ee
meri shaam o sahar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Kaanton se bhi uljha magar
Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal
Zindagi ka Safar
Dekh lo ik nazar
Aaj ka ye ghar
Aaj ka ye ghar

11/10/2020 – 78th Birthday of Amitabh Bachchan
———————————————————————-

A few days ago I saw this whatapp forward video, where a few Africans were singing this hindi song “rote rote hansnaa seekho hanste hanste rona”. This song is a known song, often heard on radio, but not recently seen or heard.

I knew it was a song sung on screen by Amitabh Bachchan. I checked the blog, to find it was not posted. This is a well-known song from 1983 film “Andhaa Kanoon”, where Amitabh Bachchan’s role was supposedly a guest appearance. Getting the lyrics of this song was a breeze, as I knew the lyrics and lines of stanza’s.

This song is a multiple version song with Kishore Kumar happy version, Kishore Kumar sad version and Baby Rajeshwari sad version. I was not able to find the audio/video of sad version by Baby Rejeshwari. Music and lyrics are Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi, respectively.

Trivia about the film:

1.This film was a remake of the hit Tamil movie “Sattam Oru Iruttarai” (1981) starring Vijayakanth. The Tamil film was also remade in Telugu as “Chattaniki Kallu Levu” (1981), in Malayalam as “Maattuvin Chattangale” (1982) and in Kannada as “Nyaya Ellide” (1982). It was also remade in Tamil with the same title in 2012.

2.Rajinikanth made his Hindi film debut in this film.

3.The villains in this film, played by Prem Chopra, Danny Denzongpa and Pran, were named Amar, Akbar and Anthony after the film “Amar Akbar Anthony” (1977).

4.Amitabh Bachchan’s character in this film was named after the poet and lyricist Jan Nisar Akhtar.

5.Amitabh Bachchan had signed this film for a guest appearance. However, as the film’s shooting progressed his role was increased till it became an important supporting role.

Songs already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Ye andhaa kaanoon hai 11 October 2010
Meri behna deewaani hai 13 August 2011

That’s a typical of Amitabh Bachchan guest appearance where he is getting to sing the title song as well as a multipurpose song. It is not clear why his character in the movie was named after Jan Nisar Akhtar.

There are many names to given to Amitabh, like Big B, Shehenshah, Angry young man and star of the millennium. Big B would be the based on this stature of being a superlative performer and his authoritative voice plus the physical presence of screen. Shehenshah, is the title of 1988 film directed by Tinnu Anand, whose story is credited to Jaya Bachchan. The angry young man was the creation of Saim-Javed duo of script writers. Star of the millennium is a bit tricky, as millennium is period of thousand years. So starting in 1969, he has less than 30 odd years of stardom in the millennia of 1000-2000 and next millennia is now 20 years old. So technically this superstar is riding in a millennia to the next. Not that it matters to me as such, but things like titles also need to be logical. However unfashionable it might be.

Amitabh Bachchan is singing this song to stop his daughter from crying. His wife is played by Madhavi, who is also present in the song. Judging from the sad version, tragedy strikes the happy family, so this song is likely in flashback.

Dev Anand – 97th Birth Anniversary
—————————————————–
Dharamdev Pishorimal Anand (26 September 1923 – 3 December 2011), is the full name of the dashing, debonair yet chocolate hero of the 50’s, also nicknamed as the ever green actor, he was a hero, director, producer and what not. He is known for never say die attitude and being a gentleman of the old world sense. He formed a trio of superstars with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor in the black n white era.

He was like a shining star which kept shining when all his neighbour, were laid down by age, health and simply lack of motivation. In the old ways, the culture of the film industry was about respect of seniors, treating others including junior artists, with respect and values which were based on humanity and equality in opportunities etc. The background of Dev Anand is an educated family of means. Plus that was an erawhen people with means had rich tastes and it converted into their conduct and dealing with fellow human beings. I have no knowledge how charitable or not Dev Anand himself was, because charity is not just sharing of monetary wealth, but sharing of positivity and knowledge also amounts of charity. Of course, there are people with such meanness in their makeup they will not lift an eyebrow, to facilitate someone else. And if such a person did lift an eyebrow, and someone else was slightly benefitted from it, the former will not like it. Ah…. I don’t know where I am going with this, but this is not towards Dev Anand.

I have recently seen his movies, “Kaala Bazaar” “Manzil” and “Kaala Paani” on youtube. Other unforgettable movie are such classics as “Guide”, “Tere Ghar Ke Saamne , “Jewel theif”, etc. I have read the Wikipedia page on Dev Anand. As I read through it, things got curious, as there is not filmography there. Very few films are mentioned, some of them I am yet to see. Zeenat Aman finds a mention as being discovered by him, but there is no mention of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. Also I found amiss the mention of his brothers Vijay Anand and Chetan Anand who were instrumental in his life and career. No mention of his great equation with SDB-RDB and Kishore Kumar.

There is also this line :
“Guru Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Pran, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Nargis, Kishore Kumar, S.D. Burman and R.D. Burman were his closest friends from the film industry.” If a man is known by the company he keeps, than there are no better examples.

The song I am presenting as a tribute to Dev Anand on his 97th birth anniversary is from the film “Amir Garib” (1974). The song comprises of two separate solos, by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, which are the mirror images of each other. The song picturization and the lyrics are also mirroring each other. Both songs are picturised on Dev Anand and Hema malini, singing the two solos. With colourful clothes, a beach, an open jeep on the beach, than the Swimming pool at the Sun & Sand just beyond the Juhubeach(Common in both songs, with extra’s looking like Europeans in colourful swim suits) and a park road with a tonga ride. This is a beach song, tonga song, car song swimming pool song, teasing song, pacifying song all rolled into one.

About version songs which are mirror image of each other, I can recall one song from the film “Himalaya ki god mein”
.
The following three songs from “Ameer Gareeb”(1974)are already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere pyaale mein sharaab daal de phir dekh tamaasha 21 June 2009
Main aaya hoon leke saaz haathon mein 12 August 2012
Kahin janaab ko mera to intezaar nahin 3 December 2018

The post is by Peevesie’s Mom which has a synopsis of the film. Another trivia is that the first song from this movie appeared on the blog as early as 21.06.2009, within its first year.

Atul ji has rightly mentioned in his post regarding BTYC posts coming up regularly, having taken precedence over other projects in the process. I think, on the other hand it is also helping bring movies bring closer to ‘Yippeeee’ and also helping movies getting noticed after an interval of couple or few years where the movies earlier were having some songs posted and took a back-seat thereafter without any reason.

In some cases where many movies made their debut ten years ago and were forgotten thereafter after getting only one song posted, the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ has been like a ‘boon’ for them. In turn it also gives a chance to readers to visit the songs of movie like these and recall their songs which were played then and also recall some fond memories if any.

Consider the case of one of the two movies due for ‘BTYC’ today – ‘Mahaan-1983’ which made its debut on the blog ten years back and so far, has only one song posted on the blog.

Let us have a look on the six songs posted on the blog ten years back on this day on
22.09.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered
Teri kaafir nigaah kar gayi dil ko tabaah Miss Coca Cola-1955 All Songs covered
Yaad karoon tori batiyaan Mr Lambu-1956 All Songs covered

Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

‘Mahaan-1983’ had some good songs like the one ‘Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai’ already posted on the blog and ‘pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli’ being the most popular song from the movie. ‘Ye din to aata hai ek din jawaani mein’ sung by Pancham and Asha Bhonsle was the other song frequently played and like then.

Music for ‘Mahaan-1983’ was composed by R.D. Burman.

I had not watched this movie then and have not watched it so far, so can’t say much about the movie.

When I noticed that this movie was due for BTYC today I went through its songs and I have selected one other song (which required more time from me to complete the ‘baat’:) ), but then noticed this lesser heard (I don’t remember to have heard this song earlier) song sung by Kishore Kumar and have selected this song for today’s presentation.

The song is lip-synced on screen by Amitabh Bachchan and also seen in picturization of the song is Zeenat Aman and also seen is a Puppet (of Ramdas Padhye the famous ventriloquist, I guess I am correct) with them.

‘Mahaan-1983’ had total seven songs in it all written by Anjaan and composed by R.D. Burman.

So far, only one song from ‘Mahaan-1983’ have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai 22.09.2010

I am not giving details about the movie and other songs too, and holding them for a detailed post with other song of the movie to be presented in the future on the blog.

(Unlike the song which finishes ‘aadhi baat’ I am not completing my ‘baat’ here)

Let us now enjoy today’s song from this movie. 🙂

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas whereas the video link doesn’t have the second stanza as given in the audio link.)

Remembering Kishore Kumar on his 91st Birth Anniversary :

teri gali main aata sanam
naghma wafa ka gaata sanam
tujhse suna na jaata sanam
phir aa jidhar aaya hoon magar
ye kehne main deewaana
khatm bas aaj ye wehshat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob

Abhas Kumar Ganguly (born 4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987), became the famed Kishore Kumar of Hindi film world. Being a Bengali but born and brought up in hindi heartland and settling down to work in Bombay film industry to follow the footsteps of big brother, must have helped form a cosmopolitan outlook in his attitudes. I have just read the Wikipedia page on Kishore Kumar and found it enlightening in many ways. Some of the eccentric behavior described in the page, are funny and not so funny at the same time.

Reading the detailed page has confirmed many of my conceptions about Kishore Kumar. Chief among them being the fact that S. D. Burman, had a great role to play in shaping him as a super playback singer. For a long time through 50’s and 60’s it is apparent that he only ever gave playback for Dev Anand. He was making films, acting as hero and character roles, singing for himself, composing songs for his own films etc. etc. 50’s and 60’s were the most productive decades for Dev Anand, but he was singing songs on screen with the total range of singers, Rafi, Kishore, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood and even Mukesh. If Manna De also sang for Dev Anand during this time, I don’t know off hand. Even in Navketan films, the songs were divided among Rafi and Kishore, a few were by Hemant Kumar too early on. So it is understandable that 70’s and early 80’s is Kishore Kumar’s most productive period, after he was convinced by RDB to seriously concentrate on playback singing. Even than he was reportedly choosy about the actors for whom he sang.

Kishore Kumar also has a distinction of being the singing star and having enjoyed playback by Rafi Sahab. Only other singer to have this distinction is G. M. Durrani.

Some of the sad melancholy songs of Kishore Kumar are my favourite sad songs which I have listed in another post. The above quoted song “mere Mehboobqayamathogi” is one such song, the lyrics of which were written in a book of songs I used to keep in my childhood.

I had short listed the solo from “Sanam Teri Qasam” – Sheeshe ke gharon mein dekho to patthar dil wale baste hain”, but I found that song a bit depressing. So I shifted to another happy sounding song.

I am presenting this peppy, feel good song from the film “Bezubaan”(1982). It’s a party song, where Shashi Kapoor is singing in praise of his wife Reena Roy and counting his blessings. It is a solo song by Kishore Kumar, witten by Ravindra Rawal and composers are Raam-Laxman. The entire cast of the film is present in this gathering. The party is moving from indoors to outdoors and indoors again while Shashi Kapoor is so shaky and imbalanced with happiness keeps falling down and dropping things 🙂 🙂 . The details of the film are available on imdb site. The songs were quite good in this film especially the song “harek jeewan hai ek kahaani par ye sachchayi sab ne na jaani”, story- telling solo by Lata Mangeshkar.

Song-Tere jaisa koi khoobsoorat nahin (Bezubaan)(1982) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Raam-Laxman

Lyrics(As per audio)

Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise raushni dene chamke
Yoon hi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise roshni dene chamke
Yunhi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Tere hansne se achcha mahurat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Munh chhupaane ki koyi zaroorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Kitna mujhe tujhpe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Kitna mujhe tujh pe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Nainon mein bin tere koyi moorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Hullo Atuldom

4th August. A day that is important for Kishore Kumar fans. He would have 91.

Almost as a ritual all channels will show some movie were we see the best side of KK. His wonderful singing, his comic timing. His weird dancing. We will be treated to either Padosan or Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi or any other popular movie. But we in this blog are unique, in the sense we dig out a new song for every occasion/ post. We also strive to find a different facet of the artist.

I had done a similar thing. I had written a full post and was taking down the lyrics of the song I had zeroed in on. For some reason I visited the blog’s “List of songs-moviewise” tab and searched for my selected song. And what do I find!!?? The song which I thought was not yet on the blog was already posted, only under a different movie. Which song was this? It was this song. I always thought it belonged to another famous movie. I wrote out everything about that song and then discovered the above link.

But there is nothing to worry. We still have a large library of songs to choose from. So here is a new song. New by the standards of this blog. I don’t know which was the last song of Kishore Kumar under Shankar-Jaikishen baton that was posted on this blog. Let us have one today.

“Chorni” (1981) was directed by Jyoti Swaroop and starred Neetu Singh with Jeetendra. The movie was about how a young maid (Neetu Singh) is exploited and harassed by the spoilt son of the family that has employed her. How, when she tries to save herself, she is framed and accused of being a thief. She is sent to a juvenile home and on coming out she is a changed person. But the judge (Dr. Shreeram Lagoo) who had sent her to the juvenile home takes her home to try and change her back into the loving soul that she was. The general physician (Jeetendra) of the judge’s family takes it on himself to groom her too and in the process falls in love. Today’s song is the doctor voicing his love to the girl.

This was one of the last movies with Shankar Jaikishan’s music I suppose. The song has all the elements of a S-J song, and could have been a tune that they would have used for a Shammi Kapoor song. Specially the closing of the song. It was written by Shailendra. This song is having Kishore Kumar giving playback to Jeetendra who is wooing a sweet and simple Neetu Singh. “Chorni” makes its debut on the blog on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s 91st birthday.

My accomplishment in this post is I have managed to find a song where Kishore Kumar is not giving playback to Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan or Dev Anand and it is not by the standard team of Anand Bakshi- R.D.Burman or Laxmikant Pyarelal. Another achivement is I haven’t mentioned any known facts about KK- his birthplace, birth-name or lineage.

Remembering the singer behind many successful actors.

Ed notes: According to HFGK part 6, the lyricists of “Chprni”(181) were Shailly Shailendra, Hasrat Jaipuri, Veerendra and Singaar. Singaar is the lyricist of this song.

Blog Day :

4400 Post No. : 15779

Less than a week ago, we were commemorating the death anniversary of Rafisaab on this blog. And here we are today to discuss another singing legend, this time on his birth anniversary. Of course, it’s none other than Kishore Kumar, another much-loved personality in the Hindi film industry.

As I said in my recent post on Rafisaab, I am a huge Rafisaab fan. But that doesn’t mean I’m not fond of Kishore Kumar.

I know some people have this “Rafi or Kishore” binary, but, thankfully for me, I don’t. I absolutely love both of them, and refuse to play one against the other. Why would one do that?

We’re extremely lucky to have had both singers in the industry. Why would we pick one, and exclude the other? Are our hearts so small? Is our love for music so narrow?

I, for one, thoroughly enjoy listening to both of them – and do listen a lot to both.

But today is Kishore da’s day, so the rest of this post is about him.

To call Kishore da a singing legend is absolutely true. But to call him only a singing legend doesn’t do justice to him at all.

Kishore da was an all-rounder par excellence – actor, director, producer, composer, writer, in addition to being a singing legend. So in a way, if I might very loosely use a cricketing analogy, he was Sir Garry Sobers to Rafisaab’s Bradman. 🙂 Bradman is considered the greatest batsman ever, whereas Sobers is considered the greatest all-rounder ever.

As with Rafisaab, I’ve written several posts here on Kishore da too. For me, he was an essential part of my pre-teen, and teen years, when he absolutely reigned. And from then, right till his death in 1987, he was the numero uno male singer in terms of popularity.

Much of my early musical experiences invariably had Kishore Kumar in them. It’s not like one had much of a choice in the 1970s – if you were listening to current songs, or watching current movies, you almost HAD to listen to Kishore songs. 🙂

I grew up in that atmosphere, and knew most Kishore songs of that era by heart. All three stanzas, if there were three.

Many of the hit movies at that time were Rajesh Khanna’s, but Kishore Kumar songs were big hits even in non-Rajesh films. Songs like “teri duniya se”, “dekha na haaye re”, “musafir hoon yaaron”, “ye jeevan hai”, “meri bheegi bheegi si”, “geet gaata hoon main” and many more. As I said, he just ruled at that time, so the actor in the film didn’t even matter.

Almost every one of my classmates in school was a Kishore fan, with the exception of one, who was a KL Saigal fan. In fact I first heard of KL Saigal only from him.

I too joined the bandwagon – and in the lunch break, we’d have a quick lunch and sing songs. Mostly Kishore, of course.

In those days, I had this habit of having ONE favourite song which I’d sing non-stop for a few days. It could be for 3-4 days, or a week or even 2 weeks. But I’d sing it non-stop, probably to the annoyance of others around me. 🙂

Again they were mostly Kishore songs.

I distinctly remember “jaane jaa, dhoondhta phir raha”, “chala jaata hoon”, “o mere dil ke chain”, “aadmi jo kehta hai” and “tere bina zindagi se koi”, though there were many more.

So now, when I have SO many fond musical memories of Kishore Kumar of those days, how can I POSSIBLY turn my back on him, just because I also became a Rafisaab fan later? Sorry, can’t do that.

At that time, I didn’t know too many Kishore songs from the 1950s. But as and when I got to listen to them, I’d just fall in love with them. How can you not fall in love with “piya piya piya”, or “o nigaahen mastaana”, or his songs of Funtoosh (1955) or Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958)?

I feel, in the 1980s, he lost a little bit of that softness in his voice that he had in earlier decades. But some of that could also be to do with the type of songs he was called upon to sing. After all, even in that decade, he did sing songs like “lehron ki tarah yaadein”, “manzilein apni jagah” and “o yaara”.

And, if he hadn’t passed away in 1987, he could have easily continued to sing for many more years.
Even “o yaara” was from the 1987 film, Kaash.

But this is only one aspect of Kishore da.

He is also well-known as an actor, mostly in comedy lead roles of the 1950s and 1960s. I’ve seen many of those films – and I really like them.

The thing is, Kishore had no hang-ups, and could do the most crazy scenes on screen. Dances, songs, impersonations, anything.

I don’t know anyone else who was so versatile – the closest is possibly IS Johar or Mehmood.

But look at “kuen mein kood ke mar jaana” from Parivar (1956). That’s sheer Kishore genius.

And of course, “aake seedhi lagi” from Half-Ticket (1962) where he sings both in a male voice (for Pran) and female voice (for himself, disguised as a woman).

There are many more Kishore songs picturised on himself, that are pure fun – “main Bangali chhokra”, “CAT Cat”, “paanch rupaiya barah aana”, “meri pyaari bindu”, “is duniya mein pyaare, do kaam karna” , “guni jano bhakt jano” immediately come to mind.

Having said that, to assume that Kishore never took anything seriously wouldn’t be entirely true. Yes, most of his roles were comedy roles. And in real life too, his co-artistes often said he would enliven proceedings with his jokes and pranks. And yet, he could make meaningful cinema too.

Two films I like a lot are both produced and directed by Kishore Kumar. Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971). Not only are the songs (composed by Kishore himself) excellent, but the storyline makes you think too. Especially Door Ka Raahi, which is unconventional in how it explores various facets of life, through the eyes of a traveler.

What more can I say about Kishore Kumar?

If the film industry is primarily about entertainment, Kishore Kumar was the ultimate entertainer. Even his live concerts were highly entertaining because he could connect very easily with his audience. No wonder he was loved so much.

There’s a lot more one can say about Kishore Kumar, but I will move on to the song for today.

This is from the film Harjaee (1981). In 2017, I posted a song on Kishore’s death anniversary from this film. Today I’m posting a song from this film on his birth anniversary.

I’m quite fond of both these songs, because they are vintage Kishore-Pancham (RD Burman) for me.

Kishore and Pancham had a long and extremely fruitful association. They were very close friends too, since Kishore, being very close to SD Burman, knew Pancham right from his childhood.

This is what I wrote about the film Harjaee (1981) on that post.

I remember seeing this film at that time – haven’t seen it since. Contrary to the typical multi-starrer, masala films of the time, this film, starring Randhir Kapoor and Tina Munim, was a proper tear-jerker. From what I remember, Randhir Kapoor is a carefree, prankster type of guy who pretends to have cancer, just to get Tina Munim to fall for him. His parents too believes his story and get Tina to be sympathetic towards him. Then tragedy strikes. Randhir Kapoor gets really diagnosed with cancer. The rest of the story is how he copes with it, how Tina copes with it, how their respective families cope with it.
The film has some good songs – like many Randhir Kapoor films do. Whether his films did well or not, there used to invariably be at least one hit song (often more) in each of his films. I remember during my schooldays, I personally didn’t mind Randhir Kapoor films at all – though I was clearly much in the minority at the time.

While watching this song “ye rut hai haseen” it struck me that this is yet ANOTHER song where the hero sings a song at a party, and makes the heroine cry or feel very uncomfortable. Off the top of my head, I remember songs in similar situations in Do Badan, Teesri Manzil, Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka and Brahmachari . Maybe Atul should have a separate category for this. 🙂

Wish Kishore da a very happy birthday though he is not here with us anymore. He is probably up there singing to Pancham’s tunes, songs of Anand Bakshi’s lyrics, picturised on Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

And, for old times’ sake, singing to SD Burman’s tunes, songs of Majrooh, picturised on Dev Anand. 🙂

Kishore da, you will always remain in our hearts.

Thanks for all the entertainment, and for enriching our lives.


Song-Ye rut hai haseen dard bhi hai jawaan (Harjaayee)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Vitthalbhai Patel, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa

milna tha hum mil hi gaye
phool pyaar ke khil hi gaye
milna tha hum mil hi gaye
phool pyaar ke khil hi gaye
ho
dil se yehi doon main dua
milke na ho koi judaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa

sapne the sapne hi rahe
apne jab apne na rahe
sapne the sapne hi rahe
apne jab apne na rahe
ho
roothe ho tum kaun suney
koi pyaar ka shikhwa gilaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa

tan mann preet ke deep jaley
aaye seher na raat dhaley
tan mann preet ke deep jaley
aaye seher na raat dhaley
ho
socho zaraa
hogi bhalaa
phool se khusboo kaise judaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan

Today 21st July’2020 is the ninetieth birth anniversary of lyricist Anand Bakshi (born on 21 July 1930, he passed away on 30th March 2002). As a tribute to him here is a song written by him from the 1982 movie ‘Insaan’.

“Insaan-1982” was directed by Narinder Bedi for ‘Mukesh Movies Pvt Ltd’. Narinder Bedi also wrote the screenplay of this movie.

This movie was produced by Ved Khanna. It had Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Reena Roy and Amjad Khan. They were supported by Shyama, Late Karan Diwan, Narendra Nath, Sudhir, Kishore Jariwala, Asit Sen, Roopesh Kumar, Viju Khote, Pannu Balouch, Dev Kishan, Jayshree T., Meena Roy, Dulari, Birbal, Amrit Pal, G.S. Aassie, Dhanalal, Misrilal, Narbada Shankar, Sharma, Thakurdas T., Moolchand. Aruna Irani made a special appearance in this movie and the movie introduced Master Sameer.

Story of this movie was written by Veena Bedi. Dialogues of this movie were written by Rajinder Singh Bedi. Scenario writer of this movie was Satish Bhatnagar.

Editing of this movie was done by Waman Bhonsle and Gurudutt Shirali. Dev Kishan was the dialogue director of this movie. Robin Bhatt was the chief assistant director and Dilip Kotalgi was the chief assistant editor of this movie.

This movie had total six songs including one multiple version song (which is being presented today). All the songs were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Background music for this movie was given by Sapan-Jagmohan.

Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh and Amit Kumar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.05.1982.

Today’s song is sung Kishore Kumar and second version or rather the sad version is sung by Amit Kumar. I had not watched this movie so can’t say much about the movie and its box office performance. However, I became aware of this song in 1987-89 when I bought a audio cassette of Amit Kumar ‘hits’ by HMV. But only the sad version of this song was there in this cassette. Later when I started contributing lyrics to this blog in 2012-2013, I came across the Kishore Kumar version or a happy version of this song. I like this song very much as it comes from my favorite category of ‘motivational-philosophical songs’ 😊

The meaningful lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. The happy version is picturized on Jeetendra with Master Sameer also seen in the picturization of this song. I am not aware of the picturization of the sad version of this song.

With this song ‘Insaan-1982’ makes its debut on the blog. And that also serves the ‘mission’ of bringing ‘movies with same titles’ on the blog. So far, we have ‘Insaan-1944’ and ‘Insaan-1952’ already introduced on the blog.

Your sincerely also had a part in sharing the song from ‘Insaan-1952’ three years back on the blog. As per HFGK one more movie with same title was released in ‘2005’ too.

If we have look on the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of the year 1982 we can see as many as five songs from Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal making it to the annual list then. The movies were ‘Ek Hi Bhool-1981’, ‘Fifty-Fifty-1981’(2 songs), ‘Raaste Pyaar Ke-1982’(2 songs), ‘Desh Premee-1982’, ‘Apnaa Banaa Lo-1982’, however the top six songs were by other lyricist and on the ‘top of the list’ was Majrooh Sultanpuri’s ‘angrezi mein kehti hain ke’ from ‘Khuddaar-1982’.

Let us now enjoy the beautiful lyrics of Anand Bakshi and the composition of Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
