Jaane Jaana Yoon Na Dekho Aaj Nafrat Se Mujhe” – this lovely lilting from the 1963 film ‘Faulaad’, is the creation of the songwriter Anjaan. A poet who has given us some of the most wonderful gems of the Hindi screen. Songs like “Pipraa Ke Patwaa Sarikhe Doley Manwaa” (‘Godaan’, 1963), “Bahaaro Thaam Lo Ab Dil, Mera Mehboob Aata Hai”(‘Namaste ji’, 1965), “Aap Ke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Nayaa Noor Hai”(‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, 1966),  “Aaj Tumse Door Ho Kar, Aise Royaa Mera Pyaar”(‘Ek Raat’, 1967), and “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriyaa Kaise Chamke”(‘Bandhan’, 1969) – and on to “Rotey Huye Aate Hain Sab, Hansta Hua Jo Jaayegaa. . .”(‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’, 1978), “Maano To Main Ganga Maa Hoon, Naa Maano Te Behtaa Paani”(‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’, 1978), “O Khaike Paan Barnaaras Waala” (‘Don’, 1978), “Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi” (‘Namak Halaal’, 1982), “Gori Hain Kalaayi’aan, Tu La De Mujhe Hari Hari Choodiyaan” (‘Aaj Ka Arjun’, 1990). And many more.

Remembering Anjaan on the 22nd anniversary of his passing away, earlier this week (3rd September).

Today, I present another wonderful song penned by him – a song that has been forgotten and has remained obscure for decades. The film is equally obscure – ‘Lady of the Lake’ from 1960. The film is produced and directed by AM Khan, under his own banner of AM Khan Productions, Bombay. It is a fantasy cum stunt film. The list of actors includes Azad, Krishna Kumari, Shaam Kumar, Sherry, Jai, Neelima, Shahgul, Ram, Fani Tinchar, Jilani, Jameela, Baby Leela, OK, Avtar, Maqbool, Robert, and Burhan etc.

The film has nine songs shared between three songwriters. Five songs are written by Anjaan, one by Saba Afghani and the remaining three by Munshi Naayab. Two songs of this film are already represented on our blog.  Today’s song is also from the pen of Anjaan. Music for all the songs is composed by the music director duo of Suresh-Talwar.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

This song is a duet in the voices of Geeta Dutt and Mahendra Kapoor. Here is duet combination of two well known singers, who came together very rarely during their careers. There may probably be fifteen or maybe less, songs that they have sung together.

A wonderful lilting melody that should have been heard more often. I am sure you would agree.

 


Song – Sun Re O Chhalia, Boley Kya Paayaliya (Lady Of The Lake) (1960) Singers – Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Suresh-Talwar

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

sun re o chhaliya
boley kya paayaliya
chhed ke dil ke taar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja
o tere bina ratiya
o re mann basiya
soona laage sansaar
sajanwa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

kab se baithi raah mein teri
baalam aas lagaaye
ho oo oo balam aas lagaaye
itne din ke baad miley bhi
to tum rahe paraaye
ho oo oo
do dil milne na paaye
behki adaayen
tujh ko bulaayen
dil hai bada beqraar
sajanwa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

jaadu ajab chalaaye gori
tera roop suhaana
ho oo oo tera roop suhana
pehli jhalak mili jab teri
dil ho gaya deewana
haaye ab isey kahaan hai jaana
ruk ja re ruk ja
palkon mein chhup ja
kar le ji bhar pyaar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja
o sun re o chhaliya
boley kya paayaliya
chhed ke dil ke taar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

सुन रे ओ छलिया
बोले क्या पायलिया
छेड़ के दिल के तार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
ओ तेरे बिना रसिया
ओ रे मन बसिया
सूना लगे संसार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

कब से बैठी राह में तेरी’
बालम आस लगाए
हो ओ ओ बालम आस लगाए
इतने दिन के बाद मिले भी
तो तुम रहे पराये
हो ओ ओ
दो दिल मिलने ना पाये
बहकी अदाएँ
तुझ को बुलाएँ
दिल है बड़ा बेक़रार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

जादू अजब चलाये गोरी
तेरा रूप सुहाना
हो ओ ओ तेरा रूप सुहाना
पहली झलक मिली जब तेरी
दिल हो गया दीवाना
हाय अबे इसे कहाँ है जाना
रुक जा रे रुक जा
पलकों में छुप जा
कर ले जी भर प्यार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
ओ सुन रे ओ छलिया
बोले क्या पायलिया
छेड़ के दिल के तार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

Blog Day : 4020 Post No. : 15132

21st July, 1969 – a tiny me was waiting for the arrival of the school bus, around 6.40 am in the morning, at the end of the lane where we lived, in Karol Bagh area of Delhi. Three, maybe four other friends, going to the same school – executing the normal morning routine, with strap bags on shoulders, waiting to espy the school bus that we all recognized oh so well, to take a turn from a crossing about 200 metres away – to come, and to gobble us up, and to carry us to yet another day at the school. I think, it was too early in life to philosophize about the love-hate relationship with education, school and school teachers. It was still kind of an eager fun to travel in the bus and get to a classroom, and spend time watching teachers do their things on the blackboard, for us. Ah yes, the blackboards back then were actually black, and white chalks were then the standard instrument of communication between the teacher and us.

Sorry, I am jumping the gun – classroom and education is not the topic today; ‘waiting for the bus’ is. So as I was saying, four five of us kids were at the appointed place, at the appointed time – waiting to be picked. Some of these memories are so vivid and crystal clear in the mind, as if it was just yesterday. Ah yes, does seem like yesterday. I remember there was a bakery and confectionery shop right on the corner where we used to wait for the bus. It was a family run business – two brother partners. Over the years, the ownership of that shop has remained in the family, but the subject matter of the shop has changed from confectionery to designer clothing today. I still remember, the board on the shop – ‘Paul’s – Bakers and Confectioners’.

The kids’ interest of course was in the candies, toffees and chocolate items displayed in the shop’s show cases. The shop would be open before we reached the waiting point, because being a baker, he was catering to the early morning needs of milk and bread supply, to the early riser families, which, in those times, was practically all the families in the neighborhood.

Ah, sorry, I digress again – waiting for the bus it was. So the different thing that happened on that morning was the the bus did not come on time. It was kind of a pleasant, expectation filled feeling in the kiddy hearts – is the bus not coming today? Well, bus used to be late once in a while. And the tiny minds would be inventing conjectures about the school being closed for this or that unimaginable reason. But then, those dreams used to be shattered within a matter of minutes – late it would be, but then it would appear on the horizon, and the young footsteps would prance on to the four steps and into bus, starting another day at the school.

But that day, the few minutes extended into many minutes – and no bus. Although we were all in the mood to run back home and make a pompous announcement of the mystery of the disappearing bus. Of course, none had the courage to do so. It was a mindless wait, but the instructions to this kiddy platoon was to stay rooted to the bus stop area, and not to wander away – no matter how late the bus was. And we waited. No, the parents were not with us. We kids were in that gray transition zone of trust building age, that the parents would drop us at the bus stop, and head back home, with the confidence that the kid would certainly board the bus and spend another productive day at the school. And so we waited.

One of the more enterprising member of this waiting platoon ventured into the bakery shop and asked for time. “Seven o five”, we were told – goodness the bus was twenty five minutes late. This had never happened before. It was a first in the long years of the tiny age of experiences that the kiddy minds had accumulated till then. But then, in the absence of any instructions for this unexpected, first time, unheard of situation, we were clueless as to what should be done. So we waited – did not have courage to venture back home – the certain thought in mind was that parents would simply scold us and ask us to get back to the bus stop immediately and wait some more. There must be a valid reason – breakdown, accident, petrol finish – whatever, but it will come. So go back.

But it didn’t come. Another fifteen minutes passed. Still no bus. The uncomfortable squirming had now transformed into an anxious fear – have we already missed it? Has the bus come and gone and all of us missed it by a minute or something. Now the fear started to grow, since if the bus had already gone, then the fault would be ours that we were a minute or two too late to reach the bus stop. And so what were we doing, while ambling towards the bus stop from home, how did we reach the bus stop late? And why? All sorts of uncomfortable thoughts were now cycling through the mind. And we waited.

But the tension was unbearable now. The urge was to rush back home, but in the absence of an explanation, the apprehension of the consequences did not allow us to move. First time in the long years of tiny experiences, we were facing a helpless situation, the CPUs of mind were primitive and no conclusive directions were forthcoming.

Finally, we saw a ray of hope. We espied a senior student of our school, walking towards our bus stop. This person used to board from the next stop on the route, about half a mile ahead. He came, he declared, and we conquered. 😀 😀

He informed us that the bus would not be coming that day, since the school had declared a holiday. So head back home and take a day off. Whoosh. . . the mounds of stones of uncertainty were suddenly lifted, a new energy seemed to flow now, in place of the helpless limbo. I am very very sure, all would have had this ‘Whoosh’ experience sometimes in school life – an unexpected holiday announcement. It was like ‘छप्पड़ फाड़ के’ – I am using this phrase in hind sight. Of course I was not aware of this phrase or its implications at that time.

Then one of us had the curiosity strong enough to ask, what happened, why this unannounced holiday. The senior was not very sure himself. He said his father had called the school, and the school had announced the holiday – it was because of the moon landing. Totally bewildered with this information the tiny brains could not process, we externally expressed relief and happiness, lugged the bags over the shoulders once again, and walked back home.

It was almost one hour after the bus time, and of course the parents were totally surprised to see me back at the doorway. Dad asked what was the matter. And I recounted in brief, about the wait, the senior student, the information about the holiday announcement and moon landing. Dad started to laugh. He had already known about this news – well he was part of the editorial team that published the morning paper. So he already had the information about the event in the late hours of the previous night. But there was no news in the papers about the school holidays. So then he ventured to confirm – went to another neighbor’s place to make a call to the school. We did not have a phone at home in those times. He returned after a few minutes, and his smile confirmed the announcement, and laid to rest any apprehensions, that I would be held to fault, for making up such tall story.

I asked him, and he explained, quite lucidly of course – he had prepared the news story for print just a few hours prior. But much of that did not register into the brain. The moon landing, Apollo 11, US spacecraft, Neil Armstrong – some key phrases stuck in the mind. I took up the newspaper and read through the story. The quantum and the quality of significance did not sink in then. But yes, this idea did sink in very earnestly that the event that happened was some towering, huge, first of its kind accomplishment by USA. In the later years, as my interest grew in scientific topics, I would come to realize the depth of significance and importance of this huge event. The man had landed on another celestial body for the first time in the history (known history??) of the mankind. Yes, it was huge.

On 25th May, 1961, John F Kennedy, the then US President, made this proposal to the US Congress, to land a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Of course, the objective was achieved on 20th July, 1969.

And so the event, and its earth shattering significance has stayed with me now, for all these years – all because the schools declared a holiday that day – to celebrate this towering achievement of the human race. The man had reached the moon, and the school was closed in celebration.

Today, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of that accomplishment. Over the past 50 years, the science of astronautics, and the technology had progressed by leaps and bounds. But the ‘man on the moon’ event has this envious and non-duplicate-able quality about it – what more to say. The US scientists and NASA took almost 8 years to accomplish the target that their famous president had set for them. Long before that, the Indian cinema had already responded with the film ‘Rocket Girl’, in 1962, and with this humorous and lilting melody created by Prem Dhawan and Chitragupt.

Searching for an appropriate song for this celebration, I chanced to discover this fabulous gem of a song that has probably been considered lost and consigned to the deep. I tried to search for songs with reference to ‘chaand’. Another song from this film – “Na Jaane Chaand Kaisa Hoga” – is an iconic, popular hit song that is already posted on the blog. When I read the words of the mukhda of this, I was very curious to search and pull out this song, because the mukhda kind of hints at traveling to the moon. With some time spend, I am able to locate this song in my collection. As far as I could check online, this song is not yet available. So I prepared and uploaded this song, and here am presenting it for this celebration today.

Listening this song, I am so surprised that this song has remained obscure all these years. A vintage Chitragupt melody that takes the listener on a journey of lilting extravaganza – so beautifully tuned and so exquisitely arranged. The humming composition simply is not getting out of my mind at this time – the lady wants to travel to the land of the moon and have a romance amongst the stars, and gentleman is not at all convinced that they would reach there alive. 🙂  The words of the song are so interestingly crafted – it is a veritable treat to listen to.

‘Rocket Girl’ is a film from 1962, produced under the banner of Film Sansar, Bombay and is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors is listed as Naaz, Sudesh Kumar, Jagdish Raj, Nilofer, Kanchanmala, Brahm Bhardwaj, Genius, Lal Bahadur, Mohammad Bhai, Ameer, Sandow, Shafi, Shammi, and Bhagwan Dada. Six songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, with wonderful music compositions coming from the mind of Chitragupt.

I have no idea whether this film is about space travel, and visit to the moon. Listening to the two songs, it appears that his film is about space travel, I request our more knowledgeable readers to add more information about this film.
[Ed Note: Details about the film ‘Rocket Girl’ have already been posted by Arun ji, our in-house encyclopedia, with the earlier posted song of this film – “Na Jaane Chaand Kaisa Hoga”. The same are also available at Atul Movies – Rocket Girl (1962). Thanks to Aero Survey for this reminder.]

Fifty years of moon landing – and a surprisingly wonderful song to go along with – enjoy.

आ जा चलें पिया चाँद वाले देस में

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The heart must have missed a beat – on reading the title of this post. Goodness. . . this wonderful iconic song, 65 years ago – it captured the imagination and the hearts of a generation, nay, many a generation of young hearts in love. This unforgettable song is imprinted on the sands of memory, never to be erased by any winds that may blow, till the end of life.

The golden age of melody was at its peak. The manner in which Shailendra knit together the words and lines of this love song – cannot be and has not been bettered since. The melody and the orchestration conceived by Shanker Jaikishan – the arrangement of the instruments, the preludes, the interludes, the rhythm – everything just perfect in this song. The renditions – Manna Da and Lata – the voices working together seamlessly – rising and falling in unison, and in apposition, complementing, merging – the “aa haa haa” lines going up all the way to the clouds. The lines

pyaar jo toota
saath jo chhoota

receding into the depths of somber apprehensions, and then suddenly a rising declaration of a resolution,

chaand na chamkega kabhi

the rendition volume going up all the way to the moon. The resolve expressed with such a dignified confidence in the nature’s machinations. The moon – no it will never stop shining, and thus, by implication, this love will never be broken, this companionship will never part. And suddenly, instinctively, unknowingly there is a lump in the throat and a warm moisture on the corners of the eyelids. Yes, yes – that is what love is – the poet, the music-waala, the singers – yes, they have got it just right, on the dot. Yes that is what love is, what it ought to be. Such noble souls lived in that golden era – who could feel it right, and conjure up an imagination, combining the words, the music and the sound – and then tell it to us so simply – that no further discourse would be necessary.

I am reminded of another quintessential song from the same film –

ramaiya vasta vaiya
maine dil tujhko diya

And once again, the simplest of words, the simplest verse one can conjure up – and there is no better way, no better words invented, before or since, to say – I love you.

And the scene, the depiction – the conceptualization – a master presenter is at work here. Here is an emotional entanglement coming to fruition in the hearts of two young people, almost at the very bottom of the ladder of social significance. A part time employee at a laundry, who has “borrowed” a suit that has come for cleaning, and his shoes are in tatters. A self employed teacher, who gives basic education to the underprivileged children in the backyard of her own home. But then love does not check on social status, or verify your bank balances, before making a burrow into the hearts. That love is simple. That love is without embellishments. That love is honest and innocent. That simply is love, and it happens, just happens.

The overcast skies, the lashing rains, the amused witness – the chaiwaala (tea seller), the incidental umbrella, the handy tootle that the young man plays, the happenstance of three cheruby toddlers in raincoats – all put together in a scenario that simply cannot now be erased from the memory’s palette.

The emotional expressions of the leading pair are just as consummate and accomplished as the scenario itself. The sharing of the umbrella becomes such a pivotal exchange. The young man offers it to the lady. And she hands it back, seeing him getting drenched. He takes it, but then sees that she is in the same plight, so immediately offers it back to her. She once again takes it, and with a helplessness writ large on her face, sees him getting drenched once again. And then the inevitable happens. With her eyes clenched, and her lips trembling with apprehension, she inches closer to him – dawning of the realization that one must share when there is a need. And the two come close now, holding the same umbrella – realizing that in love, one has to share, one has to hold together, and one has to steady each other against the squall of the winds and outpourings of this ruthless world.

And then the song begins – question by the young man, not specifically directed at her, but at himself too. And the lady answers, for both of them together – “. . . Maaloom Nahin Hai Kahaan Manzil . . .”. One of the supreme examples of cinema at its very best, in telling about emotions that shake a heart when the love is just starting to take baby steps in there. Marvellous . . . simply marvelous – much more than the best of the words can express.

Um. . . kind of got carried away with the original. 🙂

25 years after the release of the original, this song was used once again in the 1979 film ‘Salaam Memsaab’. And the manner of use is so very innovative. A little earlier, back in 1970, when ‘Mera Naam Joke’ was released, at the beginning of part II we see Raj Kapoor at the Bombay Carnival, hosting a bioscope stand, singing “Kehta Ha Joker, Saara Zamaana. . .”. And as he sings, he is operating the bioscope in which we are treated to clips of his earlier films, especially ‘Awaara’ and ‘Shri 420’. It is fun to watch those clips in fast forward mode.

In ‘Salaam Memsaab’, a similar presentation is used. A little background. Radha (role played by Zarina Wahab) and Sunder (role played by Asrani) are two young people, friends and in love. They are the street tamaasha people who sing and dance on the roadside to earn their living. Sunder has high aspirations, and wants to become rich quickly. Radha also has aspirations, but she is averse to making compromises with her principles of honesty and truthfulness. They work together, but this difference in their view of life generates arguments.

Near the beginning of the film, just about half hour into it, Radha chances to see a bioscope man, playing his machine near the Gateway of India. She gets in line and starts watching – she gets in when the song “Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua Hai. . .” is starting to play. We can see her enjoying the show, and then as the lead pair comes on at the beginning of the song, she gets into a different dreamy dimension of fantasy, and instead of seeing Raj Kapoor and Nargis on the screen, she sees herself and Sunder there, performing the same song, singing and expressing their newly discovered love for each other. She is fascinated, and the entire song is replayed on the screen in front of her, performed now by the two new lovers.

This is a very innovative presentation. In the singing parts of the clip, we can see Radha and Sunder performing, and in the other parts of the clip, the director uses the original footage and scenes. The entire song moves back and forth between the now Radha and Sunder, and the earlier scenes. Very interestingly edited and put together. E.g. when the line “Phir Bhi Rahengi Nishaaniyan” is playing, the scene clips back to the original version and we see the three toddlers with raincoats, toddling through the rain. Readers may recall that in the original version, the three kids are the children of Raj Kapoor – Ritu, Randhir and Rishi. The clip cuts back and forth between the current version, shown in subdued colors and shades, and the original version shown in black and white. Very intelligently designed.

In her dream of wide open eyes, Radha sees herself and Sunder, in an exact image of the hero and heroine on screen. As one watches their movements and expressions, the effort has been made to create an exact replica not just of the scenario, but also of the performance and expressions. You can open up two windows in the video playing software, and play the two songs, this one and the original, side by side. One is amazed by the effort made by Zarina and Asrani to replicate the performance as nearly as possible. Ah, we know it is not Raj Kapoor and it is not Nargis. But still it is a very impressive performance to see.

The film ‘Salaam Memsaab’ is produced under the banner of Roshan Films, Bombay and is directed by Asrani himself. The cast of actors includes Asrani, Zarina Wahab, Ranjeet, Manju Bansal, Rahman, Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Jugnu, Leela Mishra, Sulochana (Senior), Tom Alter, CS Dubey, Arvind Rathore, Anand Girdhar, Amol Sen, Dilip Tahil, Nilu Arora, Master Jeetu, Yusuf, and Raju, with friendly appearances by Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Yogita Bali, and Rishi Kapoor. The songs of this film are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and the music is by RD Burman. Seven songs are listed for this film which have been rendered by Mohamed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

This song, being a reuse, is not listed in Geet Kosh. And as I mentioned in an earlier episode of this series, it is not easy to track down such re-use songs, unless one has actually seen the film(s). I had also written that since I started this series, I have been getting inputs from many friends, from our bandwagon and also from others in our music lovers group, about such reuse songs. Since these songs are generally not listed, such inputs from friends has really added many interesting reuse scenarios that I was not aware of.

Today’s song was sent in as a suggestion from Anekant ji. He is a regular contributor in our comments section, and I am sure all are familiar with him. Not being aware of this reuse song, I am delighted to get this input from him. A real wonderful song, and a real wonderful reuse after twenty five years – from 1954 to 1979 to 2019 – and forty more, when we are now reading about it once again. 🙂

A reuse that takes you into a fantasy land of a dream of wide awake eyes. I am sure all of us have had some similar experience some time or another in our lives. Apologies for the digression, but I just remembered another such on screen ‘dream of wide awake eyes’ which I just cannot resist mentioning. 🙂 For all those who have seen and remember ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1972). Yes, I am referring to the song “Jaaneman Jaaneman Tere Do Nayan”. Amol Palekar is watching the film in a theatre. Onscreen the song is being performed by Dharmendra and Hema Malini. And within a few seconds, Amol Palekar goes into this ‘dream of wide awake eyes’, and through his eyes, we see the song being performed on screen by himself and Vidya Sinha. The reverie is quiet painfully broken as the villain appears at the end of the song and hits the hero with a belt. (Just from that split second profile, my feeling has been that it was actor Manmohan, the villain I mean.)

Ah so, we have a new category of songs to mull over – ‘dream of wide awake eyes’. And I am sure the readers will recall many such songs in Hindi films – yes, we do that a lot. 🙂

Enjoy today’s wonderful reuse treat and let’s wait for the next – what more such entertaining surprises are coming up.

Blog Day : 4008 Post No. : 15114

If someone pops up the name Jethalal, and asks for an identification, I am sure you will be puzzled to start with. Yes, surely a strange name, that many of the folks interested in Hindi films, will not be familiar with. This name belongs to the dear and popular actor of Hindi films – Sanjeev Kumar. His full real name was Harihar Jethalal Jariwala. Ah yes, now very familiar, right? 🙂

Remembering Sanjeev Kumar on the anniversary of his birth today. Had he been alive, he would have been 81 years old, having been born in the year 1938.

Sanjeev Kumar – an out and out product of stage and theatre, started his acting career at a very young age with IPTA (Indian People’s Theatre Association) and later continued with Indian National Theatre. He was born in Surat. The family moved to Bombay when he was young. After attending a training program at a local acting school, he joined the theatre while still in his late teens.

From the theatre, the progression to films was but natural for a performer as talented as he was. His first appearance was in the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ of 1960, in which he played a very small role. His first film as a hero was ‘Nishaan’ in 1965. For a few years his assignments were confined to C grade stunt and fantasy films. Then he 1968, he graduated into A grade cinema, with a sizeable role the 1968 film ‘Sunghursh’, alongside the likes of Dilip Kumar, Balraj Sahni, Iftekhar, Ulhas and Jayant. This year became a turning point in his career – ‘Raja Aur Runk’ became a runaway success, and ‘Anokhi Raat’ became the debut film of our blog. 🙂

The most powerful thing about Sanjeev Kumar’s performances has been that he never allowed himself to be typecast into any straitjacket. Whatever may have been the stage of his career, he willy nilly took such diverse variety of roles, regardless of the age and the temper of the character. When he was just 22, he played the role of a 60 year old in a stage play, father of 6 children. Positive or negative, he was simply concerned with a sincere portrayal. In ‘Anokhi Raat’ he plays the role of a dacoit. His comic roles are unforgettable – ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’, ‘Pati Patni Aur Who’, ‘Manchali’, ‘Angoor’, ‘Namkeen’, ‘Manoranjan’ . . . you name it. The diversity and the versatility of his performances is what brought the audiences into the cinema halls, just to see his roles. And for a surprising change, the viewing public never rejected him for his variety,

Today’s song is from the 1967 film ‘Gunehgaar’. From the era when he was still in the C grade stunt and crime thrillers, ‘Gunehgaar’ is the film in which he plays the role of an upright police inspector. His love interest is Kumkum, who later turns out to be the daughter of Sheikh Mukhtar, a wanted gangster. The film takes certain interesting and predictable turns, given the specifics of the relationships, and it ends with note of ‘All Is Well, That Ends Well’.

The film is produced under the banner of Simla Productions, and is directed by R Thakar. The cast of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, Sanjeev Kumar, Kumkum, Bhagwan, Madan Puri, Uma Dutt, Neelam, Nandini, Tuntun, Sulochana Chatterjee, Lakshmi Chhaya, Kundan, Dilip Dutt, and Tiwari.

The film has six songs, one of which – “Aankhen Pyaasi Lab Hain Pyaase” is already showcased here on our blog. The songwriting credits are shared equally between Akhtar Romani and Naqsh Lyallpuri. This song is from the pen of Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music direction is by Vedpal.

The song comes in at the start of the romantic relationship between Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum – it is that initial getting to know each other type of song, performed partly on a beach and partly in a garden. Singing voices are Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. A liltling and a very hummable song. Listen and enjoy.

jhukti hui nigaah mein
meri wafaa ka raaz hai
naghma bani hain dhadkanen
dil mera ek saaz hai
dekha jo tum ne pyaar se
har phool muskura diya
mehki hui bahaar ne
sajde mein sar jhuka diya
nisar mein us husn ke
jis ne khuda bhula diya

nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste
nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke
hamen khuda ke waaste

इक चाँद हमसफर मिला
कितनी हसीन बात है
वो हाथ खुशनसीब है
जिस में तुम्हारा हाथ है
हम आज इस तरह मिले
दिल की हसीन राह में
लाखों ही चाँद हो गए
रोशन मेरी निगाह में
तमाम कायनात आ गई
मेरी पनाह मेँ
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के

झुकती हुई निगाह मेँ
मेरी वफा का राज़ है
नग़मा बनी हैं धड़कनें
दिल मेरा एक साज है
देखा जो तुमने प्यार से
हर फूल मुस्कुरा दिया
महकी हुई बहार ने
सजदे मेँ सर झुका दिया
निसार मैं उस हुस्न के
जिसने खुदा भुला दिया

नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के
हमें खुदा के वास्ते
नई नई हैं मंज़िलें
नए नए हैं रास्ते
चले ना जाना छोड़ के

Blog Day :

3996 Post No. : 15092 Movie Count :

4142

Today 27th June 2019, is the eightieth birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994). We fondly remember him on this occasion and will be always thankful to him for giving us all those great nostalgic songs, great music and many everlasting gems.

As I was looking for a special song for this occasion and while going through his filmography, I decided to select a song penned by Nida Fazli. I thought they worked together in very few films so I was interested to introduce a new movie and I finally zeroed on this lesser known movie ‘Mangal Sutra’ (1981). I think even the song of today is a very lesser known and this might be because of this movie going unnoticed then. Even the filmography of RDB on ‘wiki’ does not have this movie in that list. (Since I could not prepare the details of RDB-Nida Fazli movies together I am deferring it for a post in the future).

‘Mangal Sutra’ was directed by B Vijay for Gaurav Films International, Madras. It was produced by Ravi Kumar. Mrs. Chandrika Shah and Mrs. Era Kalra were Associate Producers of this movie. It had Rekha, Anant Nag, Prema Narayan, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, and Om Shivpuri. The supporting cast included Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Rajendranath, BM Vyas, Chand Usmani, Jayshree T, Meena T, Guddi, Jezbel, Swaraj, NS Bedi, Shankar Singh, Vinod, Neeta, Sharma, Jailata, Baby Reema, Viju Khote and Madhu. Shashi Puri makes a guest appearance in the movie. And this movie introduced Master Vineet.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by MD Sundar. Dialogues were written by Snehlata Verma. Editing of this movie was done by P Bhakthavathsalam. Vijaykumar Raichura was the Associate Director of this movie. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.03.1981.

This movie had total five songs penned by Kavi Pradeep (one song) and Nida Fazli (four songs). Asha Bhonsle, Bhupinder Singh, Dilraj Kaur, Lata Mangeshkar, Meena and SP Balasubramaniam had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Music for this film was composed by RD Burman.

One movie by the same title was also made in 1947 (as per note in HFGK-Vol-VI), however no songs from this movie seem to be available as of now.

In the movie this song happens to be on the ‘suhaag raat’ of Anant Nag and Rekha. When I listened to this song for preparation of this post I remember to have listen it somewhere earlier but I had forgotten it. This song is nice duet and as mentioned above in the movie it is on the ‘milan ki raat’ where the newlywed couple sings this song. And for that matter I think this song is for all couples even if they are not ‘just newly wed’, they can enjoy it on anniversary or anniversaries or even on the ‘silver –jubilee’ of their marriage 🙂 . The song is sung by my favourite singers Asha Bhonsle and Bhupinder Singh.

It is unbelievable that twenty five years have passed since our beloved RD Burman has left us in 1994. He left us in January 1994. I was posted at Kota then. I got married in June (on his birth anniversary) and I remember the first Hindi movie me and wife watched together at Kota was ‘1942 – A Love Story’. . .

Once again thanking Pancham Da for the lovely, beautiful, exciting music and moments its music has given to us. Let us now enjoy today’s song. With this song the movie ‘Mangalsutra’ (1981) makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Welcome to a post which will get a reaction of “Yeh gaana baaki hai???” And I am sure Atulji will put this song under the category “How did I forget to post this song earlier?”.

In the 70s, and for all the 43 years since, this song has been extremely popular. It is a love song where the young couple meet on the sly, in the middle of the night. It was sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar for a sweet seventeen Neetu Singh and a handsome/ charming 23-year-old Rishi Kapoor. It had very simple choreography by PL Raj that made the pair look very adorable. It was written by Gulshan Bawra and set to tune by our today’s birthday boy.

27th June our dear RD Burman would have turned 80. Like I have written in my post which accompanied the song to remember Kishore Kumar on his last birthday, how I wish Pancham or RDB had not left this world when he did. Then the treasure trove of wonderful songs would have been overflowing. But then that was not to be and we lost him in 1994. But there is still a treasure trove which gives us a lot of songs which if played continuously will last us for days on end. There is a song for every mood. Currently as I write this, I have chosen some random songs on amazon prime music which began with “Chaand Churaa Ke Laya Hoon” (‘Devta’, 1978) went on to “Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si Palkon Pe” (‘Anaamika’, 1973) followed by “O Maanjhi Re” (‘Khushboo’, 1975) and has another 20 songs which include “Bangle Ke Peeche Teri Beri Ke Neeche” (‘Samaadhi’, 1972), “Roz Roz Dali Dali” (‘Angoor’, 1982), and “Mera Pyaar. . . Shalimar” (‘Shaimar’, 1978). Now I must admit I love RDB songs and what I chose to hear were songs which I have not heard in a while. I am totally impartial in my selections. 🙂

Now on to today’s song. Thank you, RD Burman, for bequeathing to us a huge set of songs to remember you with.

Editor comment-With this song, Asha Bhonsle completes 2600 songs as a playback singer in the blog.

A career that almost wasn’t at one time. His father, himself at the head of a famous film production company, did not want his own son to be associated with films and the film world. Maybe a very well intentioned direction to his offspring, knowing all the glittering and the sordid ins and outs of the industry. But then, destiny has its own will and its own ways to propel individuals in particular directions.

We are celebrating 95th anniversary of birth of one of the maestros of melody in the world of Hindi film music. Madan Mohan was just 51 when he left us in 1975. The world of film music is so much more richer that he was here and composed so many memorable ghazals and songs – from 1951 to 1975. The world of music is also so much more poorer, because he left us so young. One can never say with certainty about what could have been. But yes, one would surely feel – had he lived longer. . .

Way back in 1947-48, it was not that the young Madan was completely cut off from the film world. Being the son of Rai Bahadur Chunni Lal Kohli, one of the partners at the Filmistan studios, he had a very firsthand exposure to and familiarity with the exciting work that went on in a film studio. He was in any case, musically inclined, very inclined, since his childhood. A very less known piece of anecdotal history was recently discussed at our group get together in Delhi.

His first foray into the world of music actually is as a singer. Ghulam Haider Sb had recorded a duet in the voices Madan Mohan and Lata Mangeshkar, for the iconic film ‘Shaheed’ (1948). It was a children’s song, which was supposed to be picturized on the lead pair, when they were children (in the storyline). The song was recorded and made ready for filming. Before it could be put on the sets, Rai Bahadur Sb got a wind of it, and he prevailed upon Sashadhar Mukherji, who controlled the film production side of the company, to have that song deleted from the storyline. Sadly enough, his writ prevailed, and the song was taken off the film, as well as from the recorded tapes. No recording of this said duet song is available.

Our own Bakhshi ji, in one of his meetings with Sanjeev Kohli, son of Madan Mohan ji, had enquired about this episode and the fate of this very important recording. Sanjeev Kohli confirmed the episode, but also added with regret that even he has not been able to trace out this rare recording. Sanjeev has a lot of rare items available on tape that are connected with his father’s work, but this particular duet he could never trace.

Today, we are introducing a film that probably is the last film to be released, for which music was actively composed by Madan Mohan Sb. The film ‘Veer Zaara’ of 2004 does not count, in the sense that the music for that film has been adapted and arranged using some of the unused melodies that were created by Madan Mohan. The film ‘Chaalbaaz’ was initiated in 1974, while he was still alive, but due to whatever reasons, it could be released only in 1980.

After the release of ‘Mausam’ in 1975, and his passing away in the same year, the following films that carry music by him, got released in later years.

  • ‘Laila Majnu’ (1976)
  • ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’ (1976)
  • ‘Saahib Bahadur’ (1977)
  • ‘Inspector Eagle’ (1978)
  • ‘Jalan’ (1978)
  • ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1980)

So there is a continued stream of his work getting released, for the five years immediately after his passing away. This would be a very interesting analysis to review his work post 1975. ‘Laila Majnu’, the Rishi Kapoor – Ranjeeta Thakur starrer, is of course well known for its songs. It would be an appealing exercise.

Another very interesting thing about the song being presented today is that the singing voices are of Amit Kumar and Asha Bhosle. In an interview (available on YouTube here), Amit Kumar has stated that Madan Mohan was one of the first two music directors who called upon him to sing for them (the other being the duo of Sapan Jagmohan), outside of his singing under the direction of his father, Kishore Kumar. This song is probably Amit Kumar’s first song to be recorded by a music director other than his father.

The film is produced under the banner of Ravi Films, Bombay and is directed by Hari Mehra. The star cast is listed as Deepak Khanna, Jaya Kaushalya, Nadira, Anjana, Imtiaz, Kamal Kapoor, Heeralal, V Gopal, Leela Mishra, Hani Chaya, Atam Prakash, Master Nitin, David, Abhi Bhattacharya, Raj Mehra, and Jairaj. The four songs in this film are written by Yogesh and music, of course, by Madan Mohan.

Recorded sometimes in 1974, but eventually released in the film in 1980, the song is an interesting and somewhat unusual composition. Reading the lyrics, it feels as if the stanzas are almost in free form, and yet the tune that ties them together is very attractive.

The only song that Amit Kumar has sung for Madan Mohan. Listen and enjoy.

Today’s song is from a less known film – ‘Zindagi ke Mele’ (1956). The reason for selecting this song is that it is a duet of Shamshad and Rafi and is composed by my favourite composer Chitragupt – The King of Melody. For this film, his assistant was Dilip Dholakiya.

This was the last film of producer-director KB Lall (1911 – 25.8.1975). The other films he directed were, ‘Lal Haveli’ (1944), ‘Samrat Ashok’ (1947), ‘Lal Dupatta’ (1948), ‘Hanste Aansoo’ (1950) and ‘Angaarey’ (1954).

The cast of this film consisted of Chitra, Jagirdar, Dulari, Chandrashekhar, KN Singh, Kum Kum, Rashid Khan, Jankidas and many others. There were 3 lyricists – Manohar Khanna (father of music director Usha Khanna), Shevan Rizvi and Tanvir Naqvi. Today’s duet is written by Manohar Khanna.

The title of the film ‘Zindagi Ke Mele’ is actually very apt for the film industry. Film Industry is the only association of people which is truly secular from the beginning. Like a mela has all types of people, the film industry too has people from all over India, males and females and even a transgender. All religions merge into One Community – Community of Artistes, in this industry.

The film industry worked like a magnet, from the day it started. People of all religions, regions and colours joined here. Some made their mark, others just came, survived and left. The magnetism of film industry attracted people from all walks of life – doctors, engineers, architects, dentists, teachers, police officers, military persons etc. – all came here to try their Luck. One such person was music director Chitragupt Shrivastav, double MA, lecturer in a Patna College. It is worthwhile to take a  look at his life story again here.

Chitragupt was born on 16-11-1917 at village Karmaini in Gopalganj district of Bihar. He was brought up and educated in Bihar. He was perhaps the most educated composer of his times. He had done double MA in Economics and Journalism from Patna University and also taught for few years. He came to Bombay in 1945 and  having learnt classical music wanted to become a composer. He started as an assistant to SN Tripathi. His first break came in 1946 with ‘Lady Robinhood’, with the help of its director Ramnik Vaidya. Initially he got only stunt and devotional films to do. In 1952, film ‘Sindbad The Sailor’ songs became famous. In 1955, Dada Burman recommended him to AVM for ‘Shiv Bhakta’. This was a landmark film for Chitragupta, because he used Lata for the first time. Later Lata and Chitragupt had very good relations, till the end.

Actually Chitragupt should be counted as No 1 composer who gave very melodious songs to Lata, but this is forgotten because like Madan Mohan, Roshan, S-J, C. Ramchandra or SD Burman, he never got big banner films (at least not very often), which became a reason to discuss only their Lata songs frequently. Chitragupt always got only B and C grade films, which were not famous, but he was in no way less capable of composing good tunes for Lata.

Chitragupt was a very homely family man with a middle class mentality. He had a fun group comprising of  Lata, Usha, Meena, Dilip Dholakiya, Prem Dhawan and Chitragupt. They used to have lot of fun at the home of Chitragupt. Lata liked their food very much. Chitragupt Shrivastav was a Kayastha (‘Lalaji’ as they are called in Bihar ) and their non veg food was excellent.

In the late 1980s, I came in personal contact with Chitragupt, when my close friend’s daughter married his elder son. When Chitragupt learned that I liked ‘sattu ki poori‘ (a Bihari veg dish) very much, he called me to his house and we ate sattu puris and aaloo sabji, to our heart’s content !

His house in Prabhat building on Khar Road, Bombay had a music room on the ground floor, where he composed most of his tunes during 1959 to 1990. During the early 1960s up to 1965, he was so busy with work that – according to his son Anand – at one time 4 lyricists were writing lyrics in his home, Anand Bakshi in the garden, Majrooh in a room, Rajendra Krishna in the music room and Prem Dhawan under a palm tree and Chitragupt would visit one by one to see their progress !!

Chitragupt was such a simple person that when S-J demanded 5 Lakhs per film, he hesitated to ask for 50000 !

He remained a typical gentleman till the end. He was expert in using Bihari folk tunes in his songs. He became the MD of the first Bhojpuri film ‘Ganga Maiyya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo’ (1962). His main singers remained Lata, Rafi and Mukesh.

As far as singing songs is concerned, it was his hobby. He had sung 29 songs in 16 films in his career. Most songs were for SN Tripathi, who was his guru in film music. He gave music to 149 Hindi films, composing 1036 songs-  from ‘Lady Robinhood’ (1946) to ‘Shiv Ganga’ (1987).

He suffered a heart attack in 1968 and a paralytic stroke in 1974. He died on the 14th of January 1991. His children, Anand and Milind (who can forget their song from QSQT, “Papa Kahate hai Bada Naam Karega” which launched Amir Khan into incredible stardom!), the composer duo have also made an impact on the film world.

One can understand that people in India, with whatever vocation they followed, were attracted to film industry. But even a person with exceptional achievements at international levels, one who represented India 3 times in international games and established records –  he too? Yes, surprisingly one gentleman of this description and calibre, was keen to join films. His name was JANKIDAS MEHRA.

Jankidas was born on 14th June 1916. He completed his MA from Punjab University. He was an athlete and a cycling champion. By the age of 22 years, he represented India in 3 international meets and in 1938 had established a record for 1/2 mile race. He was the first and the only Indian to win the British Empire Games Distinction Medal.

Jankidas was also an author. He wrote and published books like, ‘Mahatma Gandhi In His Own Words’, ‘Extinction of Tasmanian Race’, ‘From Brothel To Victory Stand’, and ‘My Sports Ventures’. He was described as “. . . a rare combination of student, sportsman, idealist, aristocrat and democrat” by Australia’s leading weekly ‘Smith Weekly’, dated 22nd January 1938!

Jankidas was keen to join film industry. His first role was in Pancholi’s ‘Khazanchi’ (1941). On coming to Bombay, he found that his high qualifications and achievements were deterrents for most illiterate producers, to get him roles. Frustrated, he told a lie to a producer that he was illiterate and he got a role in film ‘Her Highness’ (1946), but he was not credited. Disgusted on some friend’s advice, he contacted V Shantaram. Here he got a role in film ‘Jeevan Yatra’ (1946) and ‘Dr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani’ (1946).

Jankidas went on to do 344 films in his career of 60 years. In the later stage of his career he became India’s first ‘Production Designer’. (Nowadays, this is a very important post in the industry). Jankidas always remembered what his dear friend Dalsukh Pancholi told him, just minutes before his death, he had said, “Jankidas, never put your children in film industry”. Pancholi died on his shoulders in the car itself.

Jankidas expired on 18th June 2003.

Another interesting, but less known actor in this film was Rashid Khan. Senior readers will surely remember this thin, short but talented actor. I always remember his comic role in film ‘Ek Phool Chaar Kaante’ (1960) (by the way, there came a movie ‘Ek Phool Teen Kaante’ in 1997!).

Born on 5-7-1915 at Baroda, Rashid Khan, a Sulemani Muslim, studied upto BA, LLB and came to Bombay to become either an advocate or an actor. Instead he joined All India Radio as an announcer. Balraj Sahni was after him that he should act in their drama, but he initially refused and then joined them. Balraj gave him a break in the film ‘Dharti Ke Laal (1946). Then came ‘Hasrat’ (1946), ‘Gudiya’ (1947), ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1947), ‘Anjuman’ (1948), ‘Aarzoo’ (1950), ‘Afsar’ (1950) etc. He acted in total 95 films.

He was a fixture in Navketan films, Guru dutt films and Hrishikesh Mukherjee films. He was loved by all directors and actors. Being a Gujarati, initially he had a problem with Urdu, which he learnt quickly and mastered it.

In 1953, he married one Suraiya. His son Fazal is a photographer and daughter Heena married into Fida Hussain family.

Rashid Khan rarely got long and big roles, but he made his small roles also memorable. He was not typecast. He did roles as villain, comedian and character artiste as father, brother or friend of the hero. While shooting at Famous studio, on 7-11-1972, he got massive heart attack and died while working (just like Gope). (Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji for info on Rashid Khan)

So, here is the duet of Rafi and Shamshad Begum from film ‘Zindagi Ke Mele’ (1956), composed by the King of Melody – Chitragupt.

“Dheere Dheere“ –

Dheere Dheere Machal Ae Dil-e-Beqaraar

Dheere Dheere Chal Chaand Gagan Mein

Dheere Se Jaana Bagiyan Mein O Bhanwra

Dheere Se Aa Ja Ri Ankhiyan Mein Nindiyaa Aa Ja Ri Aa Ja

Dheere Dheere Bol Koi Sun Na Le

Dheere Chal Dheere Chal O Bheegi Hawa

O More Sainya Ji Utrenge Paar Re Nadiyaa Dheere  Baho

Pal Pal O Pal Samay Tu Dheere Dheere Chal

Then there are songs have the word in different context, like;

O Gaadi Waale Gaadi Dheere Haank Re

Man Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dharay

And this category of songs cannot be thought of without the superbly melodious “Dheeme Dheeme Gaaun, Dheere Dheere  Gaaun”.

All the above songs are already posted in the blog.  I had actually planned to do a series on ‘dheere dheere’ songs.  I also have plans for a few more such word based theme posts.   But for all these themes I am finding only newer songs.  So the series idea is dropped, will just be preparing random posts for which ever song appeals.

Here I am presenting a song which suits the theme to the ‘T’. Its from the movie ‘Aashiqui’ (1990) which is making its debut here. More than 29 years ago this movie came and the music created a storm. I personally am witness to the rage these songs were. In recent days I have been listening to the songs of this film and I am having to revise my choice of best song in the movie. This song ‘Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana” used to by my favourite and I thought this was the best. But the other songs like the title song “Saanson Ki aroorat Hai Jaise”, “Jaan-e-Jigar Jaan-e-Mann”, “Main Duniya Bhulaa Doonga”,  “Nazar Ke Saamne Jigar Ke Ppaas”, “Ab Tere Bin Jee Lenge Hum”, “Tu Meri Zindagi Hai “, “Dil Ka Aalam Ab Kya Sunaaun Tumhen” etc.  Total 9 songs all are chartbusters. At the time this movie came and songs were so popular, it was a known fact that the songs were all from the Music Bank created by T-series (Gulshan Kumar). I think Mahesh Bhatt may have got to select the songs he wanted for his film. That is the only explanation for such high quality melodious songs in one film, when films used to succeed on only one or two good songs. Such was the condition of film music, despite the ghazal already having made a big comeback in Hindi film music. All songs in a film couldn’t be ghazal recitiations like in ‘Umrao Jaan’, so the film makers were making use of the urdu ghazal selectively.

There was at least one song in the above mentioned list which is a direct lift from an existing older song.

The music of the film was by Nadeem-Shrawan, and the singers were Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. The lyrics are by Rani Malik for this song. The film had newcomers Anu Agarwal and Rahul Roy for hero and heroine, with support cast of Deepak Tijori as the friend, Reema Laagu as the mother, Tom Alter as the warden, among others.

Here is an excerpt of a review on imdb.com :

“Each and every song of this movie is timeless. Nadeem-Shravan may not be creative and experimental like A. R. Rehman, but it is true that if “melody” had a second name it would be Nadeem-Shravan. “Aashiqui”, “Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin”,”Sadak”, “Saajan”, “Deewana”, “Dil Ka Kya Qusoor”, “Salami”, “Damini”, “Dil Waale”, “Raja Hindustani”, “Jeet”, “Pardes” are examples of this genius combination. Mahesh Bhatt is one of the finest filmmakers we had, but it is sad that his biggest commercial success is probably his weakest work as a director, or probably got overshadowed by the lovable music.”

I can’t agree more with the above para. I don’t know the songs of ‘Dil Waale’ and ‘Jeet’ of the above listed films, but can add ‘Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’ and ‘Dhadkan’ which came much later, to this list. ‘Pardes’ would be the highest point or the culmination of this phenomena called Nadeem-Shrawan.

The music of this film did make a clean sweep of the Filmfare Awards of 1991

Best Music Director : Nadeem Saifi – Shravan Rathod

Best Lyricist : Sameer (For the song “Nazar Ke Saamne”)

Best Playback Singer – Male :
Kumar Sanu  (For the song “Ab Tere Bin”)

Best Playback Singer – Female :
Anuradha Paudwal  (For the song “Nazar Ke Saamne”)

This is the tally of these artists in the blog so far,

Nadeem Shrawan 15
Anuradha Paudwal 35
Kumar Sanu 22
Sameer 30

No wonder that the songs of ‘Aashiqui’ have been rehashed multiple times and reused a couple of times for ‘Aashiqui’ – 2 & 3.  I have come across very very high praise for Nadeem-Shrawan, some go to the extent of calling them SD Burman-ish.  Output wise I am inclined to agree that they were able to maintain a particular standard, which was a difficult task, given the market and commercial requirements.   As for being SDB-ish, I have found a song or two by them to be in the SDB mode.

Anyway, the songs of this movie are on their way to becoming sort of folklore/folk songs in the next century 🙂 🙂 , at the current rate and trends.

Song – Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana (Aashiqui) (1990) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics – Rani Malik, MD – Nadeem Shravan

Lyrics

dheere dheere se
meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se
dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna jaane jaana
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana

dheere dheere se
meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se
dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna
jaane jaana
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana

jab se tujhe dekha
dil ko kahin aaraam nahin
mere hothon pe ek tere siwa
koi naam nahin
apna bhi haal tumhaare jaisa
hai saajan
bas yaad tujhe karte hain
aur koyi kaam nahin
ban gayaa hoon main
teraa deewaana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaana
oo dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa

tu ne bhi aksar mujh ko jagaaya
raaton mein
aur neend churaai
meethi meethi baaton mein
tu ne bhi beshaq
mujh ko kitna tadpaaya
phir bhi teri har ek adaa pe

धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना
ओह ….
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना

जब से तुझे देखा
दिल को कहीं आराम नहीं
मेरे होंठों पे एक तेरे सिवा
कोई नाम नहीं
अपना भी हाल तुम्हारे जैसा
है साजन
बस याद तुझे करते हैं
और कोई काम नहीं
बन गया हूँ मैं
तेरा दीवाना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना

तू ने भी अक्सर मुझ को 
जगाया रातों में 
और नींद चुराई 
मीठी मीठी बातों में
तू ने भी बेशक
मुझ को कितना तड़पाया
फिर भी तेरी हर एक अदा पे
प्यार आया
आ जा आ जा अब कैसा
शरमाना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना

Hullo to all Atulwaale

‘Daaku Aur Jawaan’ was a 1978 release. It was directed by Sunil Dutt and starred Reena Roy, Leena Chandavarkar, Bindu, Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Ranjeet, Om Prakash, Anwar Hussain, Kanhaiyalal, Asrani, Padma Khanna, Tun Tun, Sundar etc. Its music composers were Laxmikant  Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist.

This is the story of the movie as given on Wikipedia-

Birju (Sunil Dutt) and Ramu (Vinod Khanna) are brothers and have a friendly bond with each other, They do a lot of pranks with the villagers, but the pressure of the landlord {Anwar Hussain) and the urban bad guy Bhairon Singh (Ranjeet) leads villagers to pay a fee for their lands to work on them. This leads Ramu to join the army as a Jawaan (Soldier). Bhairon Singh, with the help of Thakurain (Bindu) plans to frame Birju as a criminal on the night of Janamashtmi. Bhairon Singh brutally rapes Ganga (Reena Roy) and steals the entire wealth from the safe of her father. After getting raped by Bhairon Singh, Ganga commits suicide by jumping into the well. Bhairon Singh frames Birju for the rape and murder of Ganga and stealing the money. Birju is arrested by the police, but escapes and takes a pledge on Ganga’s funeral pyre that he will take revenge of her death and he turns into a Daaku (Dacoit). Ramu, in the war, is fighting against enemies, but gets back to his village after losing one leg. After a lot of turns and twists, Seeta (Leena Chandavarkar) finally reveals the truth that Bhairon Singh had raped Ganga and he has stolen all the wealth from her house with the help of Thakurain. When Birju comes to know about it, he beats Bhairon Singh in front of all the villagers and finally kills him by throwing him into the well where Ganga committed suicide. Now, Thakurain tries to kill Ramu, but Birju takes the bullet in his chest saving Ramu in the process. Thakurain is arrested by the police. Birju, finally breathing his last, requests Ramu to read the letter which was written by him. After listening to the letter from Ramu, Birju dies reuniting with Ganga in Heaven. In the end, Ramu marries Seeta and they lived happily ever after.

So that then seems to be a very normal Hindi film story where any reason is good enough for the hero to turn a ‘daaku‘. And I must say Sunil Dutt would have made an imposing daaku remembering him from all the daaku roles he had played starting from ‘Mother India’ (1957), – his first role as a daaku. Incidentally, in that films also, his role name is Birju. And to have Vinod Khanna play his brother would have been “a sight to soothe sore eyes”. Another of his earlier films in which he plays the role of daaku is ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ in 1963.

Today on the death anniversaries of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (its 21 years today since his passing away) and Sunil Dutt (14 years today) let us have a song from this 1978 movie which will give us an idea of their talents at the height of their careers.

Also, with this post, the film ‘Daaku Aur Jawaan’ makes its debut on our blog.

Lyrics

ho rakh di hai. . .

ho rakh di hai beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod saanwariya
rakh di hai
haan haan rakh di hai
beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod saanwariya
rok li hai
haan haan rok li hai
dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud gujariya
rok li hai dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud gujariya
rakh di hai
han haan rok li hai

naina jhuka ke jara baat kar
nakhra na aurat jaat kar
naina jhuka ke jara baat kar
nakhra na aurat jaat kar
naajuk kalaai toot jaayegi
toot jaayegi
na jor mardon ke saath kar
na jor mardon ke saath kar
chheen li hai
haan haan
chheen li hai maine teri dhaani chunariya
odh sakey to odh gujariya
rakh di hai beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod saanwariya
rakh di hai

do bol kya boley pyqar mein
oye oye oye oye oye
akad gaya tu to bazaar mein
o muaa
do bol kya boley pyqar mein
hey..y..y
akad gaya tu to bazaar mein
o koi teri bandhi main nahin hoon
rahiyo na is aitbaar mein
rahiyo na is aitbaar mein
tod di hai
haan haan
tod di hai maine teri prem rasariya
jod sakey to jod saanwariya
rok li hai dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud gujariya
rok li hai
haan

pakdoon kamar se uchhaal doon
dum kham tere sab nikaal doon
pakdoon kamar se uchhaal doon
dum kham tere sab nikaal doon
ho jiya chaahe le jaaun uthaaye ke
ho tujhe nadiya ke paani mein daal doon
nadiya ke paani mein daal doon
thaam liya
haaye re thaam liya maine tujhe
ban ke baawariya
chhod sakey to chhod
saanwariya
rakh di hai
beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod
saanwariya
rok li hai
dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud
gujariya
rakh di hai
haan haan rok li hai

हो रख दी है॰ ॰ ॰

हो रख दी है बीच सड़क मैंने गगरिया
तोड़ सके तो तोड़ साँवरिया
रख दी है
हाँ हाँ रख दी है
बीच सड़क मैंने गगरिया
तोड़ सके तो तोड़ साँवरिया
रोक ली है
हाँ हाँ रोक ली है
देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़ गुजरिया
रोक ली है देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़ गुजरिया
रख दी है
हाँ हाँ रोक ली है

नैना झुका के जरा बात कर
नखरा ना औरत जात कर
नैना झुका के जरा बात कर
नखरा ना औरत जात कर
नाजुक कलाई टूट जाएगी
टूट जाएगी
ना ज़ोर मर्दों के साथ कर
ना ज़ोर मर्दों के साथ कर
छीन ली है
हाँ हाँ
छीन ली है मैंने तेरी धानी चुनरिया
ओढ़ सके तो ओढ़ गुजरिया
रख दी है बीच सड़क मैंने गगरिया
तोड़ सके तो तोड़ साँवरिया
रख दी है

दो बोल क्या बोले प्यार में
ओय ओय ओय ओय ओय ओय
अकड़ गया तू तो बाज़ार में
ओ मुआ
दो बोल क्या बोले प्यार में
हे॰॰ए॰॰ए
अकड़ गया तू तो बाज़ार में
ओ कोई तेरी बंधी मैं नहीं हूँ
रहियों ना इस एतबार में
रहियों ना इस एतबार में
तोड़ दी है
हाँ हाँ
तोड़ दी है मैंने तेरी प्रेम रसरिया
जोड़ सके तो जोड़ साँवरिया
रोक ली है देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़ गुजरिया
रोक ली है
हाँ

पकड़ूँ कमर से उछाल दूँ
दम खम मैं तेरे निकाल दूँ
पकड़ूँ कमर से उछाल दूँ
दम खम मैं तेरे निकाल दूँ
हो जिया चाहे ले जाऊँ उठाए के
हो तुझे नदिया के पानी में डाल दूँ
नदिया के पानी में डाल दूँ
थाम लिया
थाम लिया मैंने तुझे बन के बावरिया
छोड़ सके तो छोड़
साँवरिया
रोक ली है देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़
गुजरिया
रख दी है
हाँ हाँ रोक ली है’
