One of his most well known poems. It tells of the in depth vision of this poet’s mind that has explore the sensitivities of the human mind and this existence. He passed away day before yesterday, on a Sunday afternoon. Went in for a post lunch nap, never to rise again – as simple as that. He was 87.

Born as Nandram Das Bairagi on 10th February, 1931, in Rampura village of district Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh, he had a penchant for writings songs and poems right from his teen years. The manner in which he strung together his verses, and then the way in which he presented them, made him a popular poet at kavi sammelans and cultural programs. People were drawn to this very young man whose words of romanticism, and the social and philosophical messaging brought him to limelight quite early in life. Once at such a gathering, the local candidate for an upcoming election anointed him with the name ‘Balkavi’, and this name then became his signature for life. [This episode is attributed to Kailashnath Katju, a candidate belonging to the Congress party.]

The association with this political outfit became stronger as he moved into election politics. In 1968 he was elected to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly. He won again in 1980, and was a minister in the cabinet till 1984. From 1984 to 1989 he was a member of the Lok Sabha. After this, he was also a member of the Rajya Sabha from 1998 to 2004.

In his heydays, he wrote occasional songs for films, in the decades of 1960s and 1970s. His first film as a songwriter is ‘Gogola’ from 1966. The duet “Zara Keh Do Fizaaon Se Hamen Itna Sataayen Na. . .” became quite popular. Not only had he the ability to write such romantic verses, but also to create such comedy songs as “Bori Bunder Se Borivali, Dekh Li Maine Gali Gali”, also from the same film.  He has written about 40 songs for the following films (as per Geet Kosh listings),

  • Gogola (1966)
  • Do Boond Paani (1971)
  • Reshma Aur Shera (1971)
  • Veer Chhatrsaal (1971)
  • Achhaa Bura (1972)
  • Kshitij (1974)
  • Rani Aur Lalpari (1975)
  • Jaadu Tona (1977)
  • Pal Do Pal Ka Saath (1978)
  • Azaadi Pachchees Baras Ki (UR)
  • Chautha Paalna (UR)
  • Mausam Badla Hai (UR)

His best known and most popular creation is “Tu Chanda Main Chaandni. . .” from ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, that is tuned by Jaidev. In ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’, he worked with SN Tripathi and in ‘Rani Aur Lalpari’, he teamed up with Vasant Desai. His verses from ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’ are poetic gems – “Nimbuwa Pe Aao Mere Ambuba Pe Aao…”, “Gauri Raat Guzaar Do Kar Chakvi Se Baat…”, and “Jaga Rahe Ghanghor Nagaade Bula Rahi Hai Ranbheri…”. His songs in the normal B grade horror film ‘Jaadu Tona’ are way beyond the quality of the film – “Har Sannata Kuchh Kehta Hai, Har Khamoshi Kuchh Gaati Hai. . .” and “Saanwri Saloni Jamna Ka Jeevan, Ganga Ki Umar Paaye Tu. . .”.

Today I present this unusual philosophical song of love from the film ‘Jaadu Tona’ (1977). The music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. The singing voices are of Yesudas and Asha Bhosle. A poignant and curious exchange on the topic of love, that talks not of birds and roses, but tells the tales of silences and the conversations of mind. Well composed in a slow pace for the mood of the song, and equally well rendered by Asha ji and Yesudas.

Bidding goodbye to the poet of simple verses and deep insights. RIP Balkavi Bairaagi ji.

झर गए पात

Song – Har Sannaata Kuchh Kehta Hai  (Jaadu Tona) (1977) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Balkavi Bairaagi, MD – Hemant Bhosle
Yesudas + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

wo sapnon mein bhi aate hain
to khushboo si chhaa jaati hai
us waqt ka aalam kya hoga
jab baahon mein aa jaayenge
andaaz lagaane waale hi
andaaz lagaaya karte hain
aksar gumsum sapne hi
awaaz lagaaya karte hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

is aag se jo takraata hai
ye aag usey pee jaati hai
is aag ko jo pee jaata hai
kehte hain khuda ho jaata hai
do chaar gunaahon ki hasrat
chhoti si tamanna maafi ki
insaan hi rehne do mujhko
mujhko na khuda kehlaana hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kehte hain khuda ki haalat bhi
kuchh aisi hi ho jaati hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

वो सपनों में भी आते हैं
तो खुशबू सी छा जाती है
उस वक़्त का आलम क्या होगा
जब बाहों में आ जाएंगे
अंदाज़ लगाने वाले ही
अंदाज़ लगाया करते हैं
अक्सर गुमसुम सपने ही
आवाज़ लगाया करते हैं
सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

इस आग से जो टकराता है
ये आग उसे पी जाती है
इस आग को जो पी जाता है
कहते हैं खुदा हो जाता है
दो चार गुनाहों की हसरत
छोटी सी तमन्ना माफी की
इन्सान ही रहने दो मुझको
मुझको खुदा ना कहलाना है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कहते हैं खुदा की हालत भी
कुछ ऐसी ही हो जाती है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है

Today, May 13th, is the remembrance day of the famous Bangla singer, Utpala Sen.

Utpala’s career has primarily been associated with the Bangla cinema. Her participation in Hindi cinema is limited to less than twenty songs in about 11 films, during the years spanning the mid 1940s to mid 1950s. A large portion of her songs in Hindi cinema have been rendered under the music direction of Pankaj Mullick.

Utpala Sen was born on 12th March, 1924, in Dhaka (now in Bangladesh). Her first performance was at the age of 11, when she sang for the Dhaka radio station. In the early 1940s, her family migrated to Calcutta, and she joined the radio station in this city. In 1944, she made her debut in the cinema with the New Theatres film ‘Meri Behen’, and also began her career in Bangla cinema shortly thereafter. She continued to sing for Hindi films till about 1955, after which she concentrated on Bangla cinema only. She passed away this day in 2005, after a prolonged battle with cancer.

The song presented today is a duet from the film ‘Jhoothi Kasmen’ of 1948. This film is directed by a familiar name in Hindi cinema – HS Rawail. He directed this film for his own production company – Rawail Productions. The star cast of this film listed as Ramola, Robin Majumdar, Heeralal, Rooplekha, Sundar, Ridku, Iftikhar, Prem Kumari, and Manorama etc.

The film has 11 songs listed. Names of two songwriters are listed – Jameel Mazhari and GA Chisti. However, the specifics of which writer wrote which songs is not given. Music direction is by GA Chisti. Looking at the cast of actors, since Robin Mazumdar is listed as an actor, it can be safely surmised that he is singing playback for himself. In that case, it appears that this song would have been picturized on Robin Mazumdar and Ramola. Utpala is most likely singing playback for Ramola.

The song is a light hearted exchange of love between two young lovers, proclaiming that they belong to each other for life. A delightful composition that attracts the mind. Listen and enjoy.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 67#
———————————————–——————–

On our blog we have a ‘category’ of ‘songs excluded from movie’, and so far, seventy-nine songs have been posted/included in this category of songs. Today I present a song from the movie ‘Kaalaa Pathhar’ (1979), which belongs to this category.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie in theatre when I must be 11/12 years old. Thereafter just six-seven years back I got its DVD from an online store to enjoy the movie again and revive the nostalgia. But, I was aware of the today’s song many years before, or exactly since 1991 when I got recorded this movie’s songs from the LP record, for my choice compilation of ‘Daag-Deewaar-Kaalaa Pathhar’ songs in a 90 min cassette.

‘Kaalaa Patthar’ was directed by Yash Chopra for his home productions Yashraj Films, Bombay. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 09.08.1979.

Its cast holds a ‘galaxy of stars’ which includes Shashi Kapoor, Rakhi Gulzar, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh, Parveen Babi, Prem Chopra, Parikshit Sahni, Romesh Sharma and Poonam Dhillon (in special appearance), Manmohan Krishna, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Satyen Kappu, Yunus Parvez, Geeta Siddharth, Gautam Sarin, Sharat Saxena, Mac Mohan, Sudesh Mahaan, Sudhir Dalvi, Sudha Chopra, Harish, Mohan Sheri, Vikas Anand, Jagdish Raj, Suresh Oberoi, Prem Sagar, Pardesi, Nazeer Kashmiri, Ashok Razdan and many others.

This movie has six songs, penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Rajesh Roshan. Interesting to note that the background music for this movie is by Salil Chaudhary. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Mohd Rafi, Pamela Chopra, S.K. Mahan, and Usha Mangeshkar have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog, and the song being presented today is the fourth song from this movie to appear on our blog. The previous posted song of this movie appeared on the blog on 24.05.2012. Wow. . . six years wait to get to the next song. 🙂

Today’s song is written by Sahir Ludhianvi and thus this is the third song of Sahir Ludhianvi which I am able to share here under the category of ‘songs excluded from movie’, the earlier two being, Kya Tum Wahi Ho – from ‘Mann Ki Aankhen’ (1970) and Ja Ri Behna Jaa Tu Apne Ghar Ja from ‘Trishul’ (1978).

The other Sahir songs which were excluded from movies, and which have been posted on the blog so far are also listed here – Rut Phire Par Din Hamaare – from ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), Yoon Hi Dil Ne Chaaha Tha Rona Rulaanaa – from ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963) and Saajan Bin Neend Naa Aawe – from ‘Munimji’ (1955).

HFGK Vol- V doesn’t mention anything about ‘exclusion’ of this song from the movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to share information if any they have about this song please.

 Let us now enjoy the today’s song, which I do like very much. 🙂

 Mujhe pyaar ka tohfa de ke. . .

Song – Mujhe Pyaar Ka Tohfa De Ke (Kaala Pathhar) (1979) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Sahir Ludhianvi, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

mujhe pyaar ka tohfa de ke
tapti baahon mein leke
mujhe pyaar ka tohfa de ke
tapti baahon mein le ke
meri har saans mein pyaas jagaa di
tumne ae kya kiya

he ae

tumne itna uksaaya
dil roke ruk na paaya
tumne itna uksaaya
dil roke ruk na paaya
mere ehsaas mein aag lagaa di
tumne kya kiya

ek chhed thhi wo yunhi si
tum jisko haqeeqat samjhe
ae ae ae ae
jab chhed na thhamne paayi
ham usko mohabbat samjhe
ho o

us chhed ke sadke jaayen
jis chhed se tumko paayen
us chhed ke sadke jaayen
jis chhed se tumko paayen
zaraa si chhed ne baat banaa di
tumne ae kya kiya

dil ik din to jaana thhaa
hamne socha jaane do
ho o o

is dil ko thhaam ke rakkho
itna na lehraane do
o o

ye dil kab lehraata thha
har ik se katraata thha

har ik se katraata thha
tumhi ne mel ki raah sujhaa di
tumne kya kiya

o ho ho ho ho
aa aa aa aa
o o o o
aa aa aa aa aa

thhamne do meri dhadkan
aisi bhi kya wahshat hai
ae ae ae ae
hamne apni keh di hai
tum bolo kya niyat hai
ho o
o o
bolun to kaise bolun
dil apna kaise kholun
bolun to kaise bolun
dil apna kaise kholun
mere hothon pe mohar lagaa di
tumne kya kiya

mujhe pyaar ka tohfa de ke
tapti baahon mein le ke
mujhe pyaar ka tohfa de ke
tapti baahon mein le ke
meri har saans mein pyaas jagaa di
tumne ae kya kiya

he ae ae

tumne itna uksaaya
dil roke ruk na paaya
tumne itna uksaaya
dil roke ruk na paaya
mere ehsaas mein aag lagaa di
tumne kya kiya

Missing Films of 1960s – 64
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we bring on board another missing film from 1967. ‘Shamsheer’ is an obscure film, which many people won’t remember now. We become aware of such films, mostly through the Geet Kosh listings.

A film by the same name was also produce a decade or so earlier – in 1953. ‘Shamsheer’ – meaning a ‘sword’ – this word appears in the title of many films actually. There are films by the name ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ – in 1940 and 1953 (yes, in 1953, both ‘Shamsheer’ and ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ appeared in the same year). Then way back in 1935, we have another film titled ‘Shamsheer e Arab’.

The 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’ was produced under the banner of Sangram Pictures of Bombay, and and was directed by Babubhai Mistry. This film was costume drama. One look as the list of actors, and we realize this is a Sheikh Mukhtar film, with the list of actors reading as Prithviraj, Sheikh Mukhtar, Geetanjali, Ajeet Singh, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Maruti, Helen, Madhumati, Lakshmichaya, Jeevankala, Ratnamala, Sarita, Uma Dutt, Paulson, Ridku, and Meenakshi.

Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, which are written by four songwriters – two songs by Aish Kanwal, two by Asad Bhopali, one by Bharat Vyas and one by Madhukar Rajasthani. This song is written by Asad Bhopali. Music direction is by the duo of Lala-Sattaar. Readers are familiar with the trio of Lala-Asar-Sattaar. Of these, Lala and Sattaar also gave music together as a duo.

So presenting today, the first song of the 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’. It is a quick paced ‘nok jhonk’ type duet which is sung by Raf Sb and Shamshad Begum. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information for this film and this song, if available.

Song – Aaj Ye Bijli Kahaan Giregi  (Shamsheer) (1967) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Lala Sattaar

Lyrics

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

/ औ, ऋ /

‘क’ – कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

ना जाने कौन ये आवाज़ देता है॰ ॰ ॰

The sounds of his voice keep reverberating in the valleys of the mind – the voice that carries a million musical memories of an entire lifetime, unforgettable.

Today’s song in this series is a delightful exchange of young hearts in love. The film is ‘Salaam Memsaab’ from 1961. On screen, the song is performed by a very young Subiraj, and a very enchanting Kum Kum. It is always such a joy to watch Kum Kum on screen with that scintillating smile and the twinkle in the eyes that goes along with it. In a chirpy naughty mood, her expressions and her movements are such a pleasure to see. However, in this clip, I must say, her dance movements are just the typical signature dance steps of Bhagwan. Now Bhagwan is also in this film, and it is a matter of conjecture whether he had some say in the choreography and songs picurization. Maybe he did, the steps in this clip are so very much Bhagwan.

The film is produced by an entity that is called the Young Technicians Unit – Baria Films, and is directed by K Parvez. The star cast is listed as

Kumkum, Subiraj, KN Singh, Sheikh, Bhagwan, Meena, Wasi Khan, Arvind Kumar, Ahmed Patni, S Malik, Bir, and Naazi. Music for this film is composed by Ravi. The eight songs in this film are written by four songwriters – Asad Bhopali, SH Bihari, Priyadarshi and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. This particular song is from the pen of Asad Bhopali.

The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. The song is a lover’s tete-a-tete with the young Subiraj pursuing Kum Kum. At first, he is responsible for making her fall, then he tries to appease her by asking her “कहिए कैसा मिजाज है॰॰॰”.

A fun song, that is also such a wonderful melodious memory from the radio listening days. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Kahiye Kaisa Mizaaj Hai Aapka (Salaam Memsaab) (1961) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Ravi
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

kya bharosa hai mardon ki zaat ka
kya iraada hai aakhir janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey

hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey

ye baaten roz kahaan jaane wafaa
aise mein dil bhi mera
masti mein jhoom utha
halka halka sa nasha chhaane laga
ab zindagi ka mazaa aane laga
kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey
nahin nahin aapko samajhne lagey
kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka

कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
ओ कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
ओ कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

जिस दिन से प्यार हुआ
दिल बेक़रार हुआ
जीना दुश्वार हुआ तेरी कसम
जिस दिन से प्यार हुआ
दिल बेक़रार हुआ
जीना दुश्वार हुआ तेरी कसम
यूं ना सताया करो
दिल ना जलाया करो
कसमें ना खाया करो झूठे सनम
तेरा दीवाना हूँ तेरी कसम
क्या भरोसा है मर्दों की ज़ात का
क्या इरादा है आखिर जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

नज़रों ने जान लिया
दिल ने पहचान लिया
लो हमने मान लिया अपना तुम्हें
नज़रों ने जान लिया
दिल ने पहचान लिया
लो हमने मान लिया अपना तुम्हें
मुश्किल से बात बनी
दिल को है बस ये खुशी
तुमने समझा तो सही अपना मुझे
देखो जी ऐसे नहीं देखो हमें
ओ सारा झगड़ा था इतनी से बात का
हम से क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

ये रुत ये प्यारा समां
दिल की दुनिया है जवां
ये बातें रोज़ कहाँ जान ए वफा
ये रुत ये प्यारा समां
दिल की दुनिया है जवां
ये बातें रोज़ कहाँ जान ए वफा
ऐसे में दिल भी मेरा
मस्ती में झूम उठा
हल्का हल्का सा नशा छाने लगा
अब ज़िंदगी का मज़ा आने लगा
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का

Blog Day : 3520 Post No. : 14136

There are many artists for whom I’ve written posts here, remembering them on their birth or death anniversaries. But there are two artists who have featured more than others in this regard. I remember them every day anyway – so on their anniversary it is only a matter of a different intensity. I am grateful to them every single day for their legacy, the treasure trove they have left us behind with. They are long gone now from this world – coincidentally they went within a few months of each other – but they remain, and will always remain, in my heart. And not just my heart, but millions of hearts. Such is the love we have for them, such is the hold they have over us.

I am of course talking about two giants of the industry – Rafi Saab and Sahir Ludhianvi.

Today happens to be the 97th birth anniversary of Sahir – and here I am, writing yet another post in his memory. I have already written many posts on him, so I expect this will be a short one. At least, by my standards. 🙂

From all accounts, Rafi Saab and Sahir were like chalk and cheese. Rafi Saab is reported always having a smile on his lips, a total lack of ego, easy to work with, a generally non-controversial nature – and was one of the most-loved artistes in the industry.

In contrast, Sahir was seen as egoist, not the easiest person to work with. He was seen as often being bitter and rebellious. He had his fair share of controversies – and differences with other artistes. It’s also fair to say that while everyone acknowledged his genius as a poet and lyricist, he didn’t exactly endear himself to one and all.

And yet both of them have a special place in my heart. They were masters of their craft, and when they executed it, whether through the written word (Sahir) or through his voice (Rafi Saab), the words went straight to my heart.

Since this is a post for Sahir’s anniversary, I will keep it to Sahir from here on.

Sahir needs no introduction to anyone here. And if he does, there are far better sources to discuss him than this post, so I would recommend checking out any of them. Here I will only talk briefly about why I love Sahir so much. It goes without saying that Sahir’s poetry (which often found its way in his lyrics) was in a class of its own. In fact, he often dumbed down (simplified) his poetry to make it more understandable for film-going audiences.

Much of Sahir’s poetry is understandably in Urdu – and his lyrics for film songs too have a strong Urdu slant to them. As a big fan of Urdu, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Sahir’s poetry and lyrics, even if I don’t always understand them. 🙂 But if it were only Urdu that attracted me to him, that would be at one level only. After all, I have a great regard for Shakeel Badayuni too – his lyrics were also often Urdu-based, and second to none.

No, it is more than just Urdu that attracts me. It is the poet himself – Sahir, the person.

To the world, his bitterness (‘talkhi‘), his moodiness, his ego, his sharp tongue might have made him intolerable. To me, I think it is these very qualities that helped him write the poetry he did. You cannot be dispassionate, you cannot be without fire in your belly – and write rousing poetry. It just doesn’t work. An actor might be able to completely keep his persona behind and immerse himself in a role the moment the director screams “Action”. After all, he is an actor – his job is to be somebody he isn’t in real life.

On the contrary, for a poet, his writing is nothing but an expression of himself and his creativity. And that creativity is a function of his mind, heart and soul. So it is only natural that how he thinks or feels will get reflected in his writing. It is possible to of course separate the two – and seasoned poets do – but when the poetry is in sync with the mood, it probably flows much more naturally. I’m guessing this – I’m no poet. 🙂

So Sahir throwing his feelings into his poetry is something I totally approve of. Now, to the content itself.

In his inimitable style, he wrote on a variety of topics. But he is most identified with having a strong opinion on social issues of the day – and never hesitating to express his opinion. He often used his poetry as a medium to convey a strong message. Sometimes showing a mirror to society, sometimes questioning the government of the day. Sometimes exposing hypocrisy, sometimes calling for revolution. Whatever it was, he was not just another poet content to write some lyrics and get paid for them. He was socially sensitive – and clearly the ills in society bothered him deeply. And this is one of the main reasons I SO love Sahir. How I wish we had more poets like him today, with so much awareness and concern for the plight of the common man!

He has written about injustice in society (“Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo”), about the need for unity in a fractured society (“Tu Hindu Banega Na Musalmaan Banega“), about women’s plight in India (“Aurat Ne Janam Diya Mardon Ko”), about hope (“Na Munh Chhupa Ke Jiyo”, “Ponchh Kar Ashq Apni Aankhon Se“, “Wo Subah Kabhi To Aayegi”) and despair (“Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai“, “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain“, “. . .Rehne Ko Ghar Nahin Hai, Sara Jahaan Hamaara“).

For someone who had a grounding in Urdu, he could write beautiful bhajans like “Tora Mann Darpan Kehlaaye“, “Prabhu Tero Naam“, “Allah Tero Naam“, “Meri Sun Le Araj Banwaari“,  and the immortal “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyam Saanwre“.

Then there is the philosophical Sahir too, exemplified in songs like “Aage Bhi Jaane Na Tu“.

A recurring theme in his writing is the mother-child relationship, maybe based on his own experiences in life. It is well-known that he was particularly close to his mother – and chose her above his much more affluent father when he had to make a choice. So we see beautiful lyrics on mother-child in ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (“Tu Mere Pyaar Ka Phool Hai“), ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (“Tere Bachpan Ko“), ‘Trishul’ (“Tu Mere Saath Rahega Munne“)  – and I am sure some other films too.

Then there is the qawwaali Sahir. He excelled in them, with the qawwaalis of ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’, ‘Dharamputra’ and ‘Taj Mahal’ showcasing just some of his work.

And then there is the romantic Sahir. Yes, while he wrote about all other aspects of life, he did not come up short on what was bread-and-butter for most poets – romantic poetry. He could write the most romantic lines – the romantic songs of ‘Gumraah’ and ‘Hamraaz’, for example, just take your breath away. And not just these films – think of songs like “Parbaton Ke Pedon Par” from ‘Shagoon’, and on the same ‘parbat’ theme, “Ye Parbaton Ke Daayare” from ‘Vaasna’.

I can go on and on, discussing his songs, but I think I need to now come to the song for today. It is also a romantic song, but this time from very late in his career. It is no secret that in the 1970s, Sahir was disillusioned with the quality of lyrics on offer in Hindi cinema. Urdu, which offered so much richness to lyrics, was being phased out and replaced with more ‘chaalu‘ lyrics. In general, films (and music too, I might add) had become more loud and less, for want of a better word, classy.

He himself withdrew for a bit – and while he continued to work for the BR Chopra/Yash Chopra banners, he wasn’t as prolific as in the 60s. His disillusionment is probably best expressed in one of his most memorable songs of the decade – “Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon“.

It is in this context one needs to see the song for today. It is from the 1980 film ‘Chehre Pe Chehra’, a film that makes its debut on the blog today. I remember this film being released – and being a flop. I haven’t seen the film – my understanding is, it’s based on the famous ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ story. Sanjeev Kumar plays the dual role. The song is a romantic song – and pleasant enough, even if it doesn’t quite scale to the level of his heady songs of the 1960s. Even so, in comparison to the fare around at the time, I’d say its lyrics are better than most other songs of the time. Of course this is just my personal opinion.

Let’s now listen to the song, sung by Sulakshana Pandit and Rafi Saab. Music is by N Datta, one of his most famous pairings. I leave it to you to judge for yourself what you make of this song. I quite like it.

Lyrics were provided to me by the ever-helpful and reliable Avinash ji. A big thanks to him. He makes it so much easier for me to just focus on the write-up itself.

aaj socha hai. . .
aaj socha hai
khayaalon mein bulaa kar tum ko
pyaar ke naam pe thodi si shikaayat kar len
aaj socha hai

aaj socha hai
khayaalon mein bulaa kar tum ko
pyaar ke naam pe thodi si shikaayat kar len
aaj socha hai

aise bichhade ho ke jaise kabhi milna hi nahin
aise bhoole ho ki jaise  kabhi jaana hi na thha
ajnabhi ban ke agar yoon hi sitam dhaana thha
paas aana hi na thha  paas bulaana hi na thha
aao toote huye
aao toote huye
khwaabon ki jiyaarat kar len
aaj socha hai ae

ranjishen bhi wahin palti hain
jahaan pyaar paley
pyaar hi jis se nahin
us se gilaa kya hoga
meri ummeed hai tu
teri tammanna main hoon
aur chaahat ki duaaon ka sila kya hoga
ranjishen bhool ke
ranjishen bhool ke
khwaabon ko haqeeqat kar len
aaj socha hai

kya kahoon main tumhen
kya samjha hai kya maana hai
meri chaahat ne tumhen
apna khudaa maana hai
apna hissa hi tumhe maine sadaa maana hai
jaan ko kis ne bhalaa tan se judaa maana hai
jaan aur tan se
jaan aur tan se naya ahd-e-mohabbat kar len
aaj socha hai
aaj socha hai
khayaalon mein bulaakar tumko
pyaar ke naam pe thodisi shikaa …

hmm hmm hmm hmmmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm

aaj socha hai. . .

आज सोचा है॰॰॰
आज सोचा है
खयालों में बुला कर तुमको
प्यार के नाम पे थोडी सी शिकायत कर लें
आज सोचा है

आज सोचा है
खयालों में बुला कर तुमको
प्यार के नाम पे थोडी सी शिकायत कर ले ए ए
आज सोचा है

ऐसे बिछड़े हो के जैसे कभी मिलना ही नहीं
ऐसे भूले हो कि जैसे कभी जाना ही नहीं था
अजनबी बन के अगर यूंही सितम ढाना था
पास आना ही न था पास बुलाना ही न था
आओ टूटे हुए
आओ टूटे हुए
ख़्वाबों कि ज़ियारत कर लें
आज सोचा है ए

रंजिशें भी वहीँ पलती हैं
जहाँ प्यार पले
प्यार ही जिससे नहीं
उस से गिला क्या होगा
मेरी उम्मीद है तू
तेरी तमन्ना मैं हूँ
और चाहत की दुआओं का सिला क्या होगा
रंजिशें भूल के
रंजिशें भूल के
ख़्वाबों कों हकीकत कर लें
आज सोचा है

क्या कहूँ मैं तुम्हे
क्या समझा है क्या माना है
मेरी चाहत ने तुम्हें
अपना खुदा माना है
अपना हिस्सा हि तुम्हे मैंने सदा माना है
जान को किसने भला तन से जुदा माना है
जान और तन से
जान और तन से नया अहद-ए-मोहब्बत कर लें
आज सोचा है

आज सोचा है
खयालों में बुला कर तुमको
प्यार के नाम पे थोडी सी शिका…

Blog Day : 3510 Post No. : 14101

It’s not easy writing this. I’ve written many posts here on the death anniversaries of various artistes – but in all those cases, I’ve had the benefit of distance of time from the event. Even if it is the first death anniversary, at least 365 days have passed since. That does make a difference. Today’s post isn’t a death anniversary post. It’s a tribute post, of course, but the artiste in question has just left us a few hours ago! And we are still in mourning. Which is why I write this post now with a lot of sadness in my heart.

This morning, when I woke up, I got the news that was like a bolt from the blue – that Sridevi, one of the most famous and popular actresses of our times, was no more. When I checked my whatsapp messages today, a regular morning routine, there was a message from one of my nieces – “This Sridevi news has left me so disturbed. She was my all-time favourite”.

I immediately checked Twitter, which is my usual go-to source for latest news. And sure enough – it was real, not a fake news item. Twitter is notorious for fake news being spread – but this time, unfortunately, there was nothing fake about this. Tributes were pouring in on Twitter.

I took a deep breath. It all seemed so unbelievable, it took me a while to digest the news. Sridevi  had died a few hours earlier of a cardiac arrest in Dubai. She had gone to attend a family wedding – it turned out to be her last day on this earth. There were pictures of her from just a few hours earlier – she looked just fine. In fact, she looked more than fine, she looked gorgeous – like she’d always looked. I was not aware of any health complaints of any sort. So then how did this suddenly happen?

There are theories floating around, some to do with her diet, pills etc. I do not want to discuss any of this here – it is all in the realm of speculation anyway, and I am sure we will get to hear more about it in the days to come.  Right now, all I know is that my thoughts have been with her all day today. I can see Sridevi’s face right in front of my eyes –superbly expressive, that twinkle in her eye, that smile. I can see her dancing, whether as a Naagin, or doing a break-dance in Michael Jackson style – completely at ease with both.

I can see her portraying a docile, innocent Anju one minute, and a chaalu Chaalbaaz Manju the very next. That is / was Sridevi. She could do both sadness and madness to such perfection within minutes – and you wouldn’t be able to say she was acting. No wonder she won many millions of fans all over the world. And not just Hindi film fans. Sure, she reigned as superstar for almost a decade in the Hindi film industry but her career in the South Indian film industry was not just longer, it was also probably far richer.

There will be many obituary and tribute pieces written for Sridevi in the days to come. As is common, her entire life will be detailed – from her early days to her final ones. Her career will be discussed in great detail, as will her personal life. I choose not to add to the repetitive element of these. I am no expert on Sridevi anyway – and anyone who wants a lot of facts on her is better advised to seek out one of those other sources. As is my wont, I will discuss Sridevi here from a personal perspective.

Hmm, where do I start? When did I first hear of Sridevi? I must admit that I first heard of Sridevi only in the late 1970s, though she had already become a popular name in South Indian cinema for some years by then. I lived in Eastern India at that time, where the exposure to South Indian cinema was very limited – and I’d heard of very few actors and actresses of the South.  Of course I’d heard of the legends (Sivaji Ganesan, MGR, Gemini Ganesan, Savitri, KR Vijaya etc.) but of the then-current lot, I’d not heard of many. Yes, I’d heard of Kamalahasan and Rajinikanth, though I’d not seen any of their films. As for heroines, I got to hear names like Sripriya, Srividya, Sujatha. And Sridevi. To me, the name Sridevi was just one of these names at that time.

Around that time, South Indian producers once again began to show interest in making Hindi films. Of course earlier too they had made a lot of films but the pace had slackened in the 1970s. It suddenly began picking up towards the end of the decade. Understandably these producers wanted to work with actors they were familiar with. So, just like Jamuna and KR Vijaya in an earlier generation, we got to see new South Indian faces entering the Hindi film industry.

Thus, in 1979, we got news that two big-name South Indian actresses would be seen in Hindi films. Jayaprada would be seen in a film called ‘Sargam’ (1979), and Sridevi would be seen in a film called ‘Solvaan Saawan’ (1978). ‘Sargam’ became a huge hit – and set Jayaprada on her way to success in the Hindi film industry. ‘Solvaan Saawan’, on the other hand, just came and went – and with that seemed to sink Sridevi’s future too in Hindi films. She simply seemed to have disappeared from the Hindi film scene.

For a while, I forgot about the existence of Sridevi, even as she was becoming a progressively more popular and successful star in the South. As it is, Hindi films rolled merrily on – with established heroines like Zeenat Aman, Hema, Parveen and Reena Roy, and a new set of heroines like Poonam Dhillon, Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure, Anita Raaj and Deepti Naval.

By then, I was getting increasingly busy with my studies and was not able to keep pace with Hindi movies.

Then came 1983 and ‘Himmatwaala’ happened.  Sridevi returned with a bang. This film, in which she starred opposite Jeetendra, turned out to be a smash hit, with the songs becoming super-duper hits. Ironically for me, these songs only hastened my distaste for songs of that period, a distaste that had been formed with songs like “Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain”, “. . .Chaaye Pe Bulaaya Hai” becoming big hits. From then on, I almost completely shut myself off from Hindi films for a while.

‘Himmatwaala’ was one in a string of films from South India, many of which were commercially successful during the 1980s. Many of them starred Sridevi, Jeetendra and Jayaprada. Some starred Rajesh Khanna. But I had got a mental block about these films. So while Sridevi and Jayaprada were becoming big stars in Hindi cinema, I refused to watch their films. Years later, around 2007, I did watch ‘Himmatwaala’ on TV, keeping my expectations very low. Must admit it wasn’t all THAT bad!

Despite this mental block, I did watch the odd Sridevi film. The first one I remember watching was ‘Sadma’ (1983). I remember thinking “Oh, so THIS is Sridevi!”.  I liked her in the film. Then I watched ‘Tohfa’ (1984). Only because it was being screened in our local club and my friends persuaded me to watch it. I went in with very low expectations – and was therefore not very disappointed. Again, I liked Sridevi in the film. But then I’m not a particularly big fan of Jayaprada. So in comparison, I’d any day prefer to watch a Sridevi film. And then I watched ‘Moondram Pirai’ (1982), the Tamil classic – of which ‘Sadma’ is a remake. Apart from these three films, I didn’t watch a single Sridevi film in the 80s.

Thankfully her career wasn’t dependent on my taste at the time 🙂 otherwise it would not have taken off at all. She kept going from strength to strength. By 1986, when she would be seen in ‘Sultanat’, ‘Aakhri Raasta’, ‘Jaanbaaz’, ‘Karma’ and ‘Nagina’ – all big movies, I realized that whether I was watching her movies or not, the whole of India seemed to be watching them. And loving her.

I realized that though there were other heroines like Meenakshi Seshadri and Dimple Kapadia who had the odd hit film, and Jayaprada was still very much in the mix, Sridevi had gone ahead of them all. She was now probably the No.1 heroine of the time. (Rekha, by then, was in a league of her own).

Then in 1987, Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Mr. India’ hit the screens – and that probably sealed it. Anyone who had any doubts about Sridevi’s rank in the industry was effectively shut up by this film. Her “Hawa Hawaii” song was a rage all over India. And then there was “Kaate Nahin Kat’te Ye Din Ye Raat”, which was Sridevi all the way.

Around this time, it was not inconceivable that a film would run on Sridevi’s name alone. She had earned that superstar status. On the male front, Amitabh Bachchan in the mid to late 1980s wasn’t having a good run. And none of the other male stars were quite superstar material yet. Sridevi was.

Yet she continued to act in a remarkable number of poor-to-average films – such was the quality of films in the 1980s! You can hardly blame the actor for that. You were lucky if there was one memorable film in ten. Most films could be forgotten the moment you stepped out of the hall.

Of her other well-known films, two from 1989 come to mind – ‘Chaandni’ and ‘Chaalbaaz’. I remember ‘Chaandni’ becoming a superhit. I’m not so sure about ‘Chaalbaaz’ – though it is one of my favourite Sridevi films. She plays a double role – and how. The film, a remake of ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), is a hilarious comedy, completely owned by Sridevi.

1991 saw ‘Lamhe’ – another landmark film in her career. Once again, Sridevi was seen in a double role. Mother and daughter. A very different sort of film. I think ‘Lamhe’ failed at the box-office – it was a storyline that the audience found difficult to accept. But that does not take away from Sridevi’s performance.

1992 saw ‘Khuda Gawaah’, again a double role for Sridevi. Mother and daughter again. I wonder if any heroine has done more double roles than Sridevi. Fabulous scenes of Afghanistan, fabulous acting by Sridevi.

1993 had the resounding and expensive flop, ‘Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja’. After this, her career took a dip – and after ‘Judaai’ (1997), she was next to be seen in a lead role, goodness, 15 years later, in ‘English Vinglish’ (2012). And what a performance! It was SUCH a pleasure to see her in this film, putting up such a mature performance, that I was left wondering what might’ve been in the preceding 15 years.

Oh, one thing. I saw each one of the films I’ve mentioned above only after 1995. Yes, even her 1980s hits. Like I said before, I studiously stayed away from 1980s films at the time they were released. Not just Sridevi films, but all 1980s films. In the process, I might have missed some good ones too. I caught up with many of them later. After 1995.

And as I watched Sridevi, I could understand why she had become such a superstar. Beyond her looks and her amazing dancing ability, there was a fine actor. Not everyone realizes this – but her ability to take a scene to a different level altogether, just with her facial expressions, a roll of the eyes, a smile from the side of her mouth, all of this added to producing a memorable performance. And I daresay unlike the male superstars, her mannerisms didn’t come across as clichéd, even if she repeated them. She only endeared herself even more to the audience.

Yes, I could fully understand why Sridevi was a superstar. But ironically I realized this only after she had conceded the top spot to Madhuri Dixit, herself a deserving No.1. Many folks make a big deal of the Sridevi – Madhuri rivalry. I’ve never cared about it – each actor has his/her time and ups and downs. Both Sridevi and Madhuri were terrific actors and entertainers – and that is the main reason they were loved so much by the public. Anyway, the timing when the realization hit me, is irrelevant. What’s important is she is loved by millions of people. The outpouring of grief today is testimony to this. Whether you are a superstar or not, is secondary.

Let’s move on to the song for today.

I’ve picked this song from ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1989). It’s one of my favourite Sridevi films. I have watched it multiple times – and can still watch it. A ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) remake, Sridevi here plays Anju (the docile one) and Manju (the chaalu one). The male leads are played by Sunny Deol and Rajinikanth. Though the film stars Anupam Kher, Rohini Hattangadi and Shakti Kapoor too, the film belongs to Sridevi. The dialogues are hilarious – check them out on youtube.

The song for today showcases, to some extent, why Sridevi was so popular. Just look at her bindaas dancing, just look at the expressions on her face. This is classic Sridevi. You cannot but love her in this song. Although it features Sunny Deol too, and a whole host of supporting dancers, Sridevi clearly steals the show. I’ve watched the song five times already today. It’s one way of remembering Sridevi. I am sure you will like the song too. Just observe Sridevi through the song – she is having so much fun, this song will just lift your spirits.

Lyrics have been provided by Avinashji. He was kind enough to offer to write them up, as soon as he got to know that I was planning to do this write-up. Thanks a lot, Avinashji.

Thank you for all the wonderful memories, Sridevi. You will always remain in our hearts.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ओ’ – ओ तेरा छुप छुप के चले आना

मेरी आवाज़ ही पहचान है
गर याद रहे

जी, अब तो सिर्फ आवाज़ ही सहारा है। और यादें। ज़िंदगी काश कुछ अरसा पहले मिली होती॰ ॰ ॰

Rafi Sb never shied away from giving playback to any actor, no matter the age, the role, or even stature in the industry. He would gladly lend his voice to new comers, as well as to lesser known artists, be they the onscreen debutants, or be they new or less popular music directors and lyricists. At times, he would even accept a very nominal amount, or even zero amount, as his fee, when a producer apologetically mentioned about his financial circumstances. Such stories are legion in the industry.

Today’s song is a ‘romantic’ duet from the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’. It is a love song, in a manner of speaking – however it is picturized on the pair that forms the ‘comic side plot’ or CSP in the film. The actors performing this song online are Maruti and Aruna Irani.

The film is produced under the banner of Film India, Bombay and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. This film is another Dara Singh starrer, and its cast of actor is listed as Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, and King Kong. The music is from the trio of music directors – Lala, Asar and Sattaar. The songs of this film are written by Aish Kanwal and Madhukar Rajasthani, and this song today is from the pen of the latter.

Comic side plot in Hindi films is akin to the concept of ‘comic relief’ of the stage and theatre dramatics. In many films, not just Hindi, but in other regional cinema also, we find that the hero has a friend or a sidekick, who in turn has a secondary storyline running in parallel with the storyline of the hero. The highlight of this storyline is the romantic angle which involves one of the supporting actresses in the film, generally a friend of the heroine. This side plot progresses alongside the main storyline. Mostly, the male protagonist in this side plot is a comedian. And the relative importance of the comedian actor, of the role played, and of the side plot itself is measured by whether this side plot pair gets to perform a song on screen. In most films, we find that yes, this side plot romantic pair gets to sing at least one, and occasionally, even more than one songs.

In this film, the side plot players are Maruti and Aruna Irani. And they have a song to play. Romance is being expressed, albeit in the typical comic style of Maruti, with a discussion on possibilities of a marital alliance thrown in for good measure. Rafi Sb’s voice is accompanied by Kamal Barot. And we get to hear a treat of an entertaining duet – romance in the side plot alleys. Enjoy.

 

 

Song – O Tera Chhup Chhup Ke Chale Aana (Sangraam) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Kamal Barot, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Lala-Asar-Sattaar
Mohammed Rafi + Kamal Barot

mere pyaar ka bole kabootar
ghum o ghum o ghum
aur kisi ko dena chakkar
yoon yoon yoon yoon
aur kisi ko dena chakkar
yoon yoon yoon
achha nahin dil ko jalaana
hoye haaye

Missing Films of 1960s – 39
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What luck, I must have missed this song in my online searches earlier when I was looking for songs of missing films from 1964. When I located this song couple of days back, I realize it has been sitting here for almost five years. What luck.

And what a wonderful melodious song this one is. और कैसे कैसे कहूँ – the more obscure the film, the higher probability that we will find some really great songs. I was completely bowled over by this song when I was able to locate it and then listened to it. The song has been uploaded by our dear friend Parag Sankla.

This is a stunt film that was produced in 1964 under the banner of Padma Productions, Bombay. Name of the director is given simply as Jal. The star cast is familiar for such films of that era – Azaad, Chitra, Heeralal, Krishna Kumari, Kamal Kapoor, Shaam Kumar, Heera Sawant, Sheikh, Maruti, Fazlu, and then a lot more names that are not very familiar – Gani, Nihal, Renu, Meena, Master Dillu, Nayar, K Murti, Buniyad Ali Sultan, Gopal, and Raghunath.

Geet Kosh lists 7 songs for this film. As per the listings, only 4 songs appear to have been released on gramophone records, and three may be lost, unless the film itself is traced. Names of two music directors are listed – Manoharlal and S Kishan. Manoharlal is possibly Manoharlal Khanna, whom we know more as a lyricist, although his name also appears as a music director in a few films. The specific MD name against individual songs is not given so I propose we use the MD name as ‘Mahoharlal, S Kishan’.

Coming to lyricists, once again two names are listed – Akhtar Romani and Farad. And once again, the specific name against individual songs is not listed, so it is not possible to identify the writer of this song.

Singing voices are of Geeta Dutt and Mahendra Kapoor. Both have sung their lines with zest and fun. A wonderful song for light mood and fun.

So this film makes a debut on our blog today. At least four songs of this film are available, so we should be seeing more of them here.

Song – O Mr Johnny Mizaaz Kaisa Hai  (Tarzan Aur Captain Kishire) (1964) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Manoharlal, S Kishan
