Today’s song is a comedy duet from the film ‘Roshni’ (1949).

The film was made by Standard Pictures Corporation, Bombay. It was directed by Ramanlal Desai and the MD was C Ramchandra. The lyricist was PL Santoshi. The cast of the film was Rehana, Nihal, Pran, VH Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Sophia, Chand Barq, Indira, Shama, Zarine, Ishrat etc.

After making it in Hindi films as an MD for film ‘Sukhi Jeevan’ (1942), C Ramchandra had joined Jayant Desai productions on a salary of Rs. 300 pm. He gave successful films like ‘Bhaktaraj’ (1943), ‘Zaban’ (1943), ‘Lalkar’ (1944), ‘Manorama’ (1944) and ‘Samrat Chandragupta’ (1945), C Ramchandra felt that he deserved a salary increase. As Jayant Desai was not ready to increase it to his desire, he left the company. After a few months, with the help of Kavi Pradeep, C Ramchandra joined Filmistan, where he got what he wanted, namely salary of Rs. 1,000 pm and freedom to give music to outside films also.

While he continued with Filmistan, he reached his peak in career by giving hit musicals like ‘Safar’ (1946), ‘Shehnai’ (1947), ‘Sajan’ (1947), ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’ (1948), ‘Khidki’ (1948), ‘Patanga’ (1949), ‘Sargam’ (1950) and many more. Meanwhile he was giving music to films of other production companies, but managing a proper balance with Filmistan films. ‘Roshni’ (1949) was also one such film.

Taking a look at the cast, I found 3 actresses of interest, about whom not much is known to common lovers of old films and music. The first was Shama. During the period of 1930’s and the 1940’s, there were 3 actresses with the name Shama or Shyama. The first of them was Shyama Zutshi, second was Shama Dulari and the third was actress Shyama, who ruled in the 50’s and the 60’s with over 160 films.

Shyama Zutshi was the first Kashmiri Girl who joined films in 1934. She acted in many films, some of which are :-

1 ‘Vishnu Bhakti’ in 1934
2 ‘Laila Majnu’ in 1935
3 ‘Khooni Jadugar’ in 1939
4 ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ in 1935

Shyama Zutshi belonged to a well to do family of Lahore. Her father was a barrister. She was quite a successful and sought after actress but suddenly she moved out from films and focused on politics and freedom struggle. Shyama was a congress leader .

Another reason for her to quit films was the presence of a fellow Kashmiri Actor Chander Mohan Wattal. Chander Mohan would always tell her to quit as according to him acting in films was not meant for girls from good families . Chander Mohan Wattal opposed the entry of Kashmiri girls to films .

The second was Shama Dulari. Not much is known about her personal life. Shyama Dulari hailed from a small city of Madhya Pradesh. She was interested in acting and had acted in school and college dramas. After education, she came to Bombay and appeared for a screen test and interview at Filmistan. She passed the test, but did not like the salary that was offered.

She went to Poona and met WZ Ahmed of Shalimar Pictures. He was quite impressed with her and signed an exclusive contract for 3 years, offering her a very lucrative salary. However in the next two years she acted only in two films – ‘Meerabai’ (1947) and ‘Shehzadi’ (1947). Due to the contract, she could not work anywhere else also.

After 1947, when Ahmed migrated to Pakistan along with Neena, she came to Bombay. Jayant Desai signed her for the lead role in the film ‘Lakhpati’. Unfortunately, due to her father’s illness, she had to leave Bombay and go back to her native city in MP. She came back and tried to get work. She worked in films like ‘Rangeela Rajasthan’ (1949), ‘Shair’ (1949), ‘Roshni’ (1949), ‘Rooplekha’ (1949), ‘Naqli Baap’ (1949), ‘Jal Tarang’ (1949), ‘Ek Teri Nishani’ (1949), ‘Char Din’ and ‘Dolti Naiya’ (1950). Her last known film was ‘Babul’ (1950) wherein she did a small role.

No information after that. Problem was that at the same time the famous actresses Shyama (Khurshid Akhtar) and Shyama Dulari were in the film line. Shyama initially was acting under the names like Baby Akhtar, Baby Khurshid and Baby Shyama; whereas Shama Dulari was credited as Shama, Shama Dulari and sometimes Shyama also. I listed films in Shyama’s name and tried to see the credits of films which were available. Though very few films are available on You Tube, I tried to separate the films for Shama Dulari based on her credits and by conjuncture. Still there could be some errors, which will be corrected when proof comes up suitably.

The third was Shyama, too well known to write anything about. We all know her well.

The case of Shama Dulari was different. She was actually a victim of an intentional restrictive contract. When she signed a contract with WZ Ahmed of Shalimar Pictures, Poona, little did she know that she would rot there without work for 3 years ! The company used her only in 2 films – ‘Shehzadi’ (1947) and ‘Meerabai’ (1947). Rest of the time she was paid only half salary and legally she was prohibited from working elsewhere. It was only after Ahmed migrated to Pakistan, with Neena and without paying the staff salaries, she became a free bird.

Such cases were not uncommon in the Hindi film industry. This happened with actress Meena Shorey too (Lara Lappa girl) and Sohrab Modi, who demanded Rs. 60,000 from her to remove a legal case against her for breaking their contract and working in a Lahore film. It was with the intervention of Mehtab, that the amount was reduced to Rs. 30,000, which Meena had to pay through her nose to avoid legal action.

Same happened with Mrudula, the first heroine of Dilip Kumar in the film ‘Jwaar Bhata’ (1944). She had signed a contract with Devika Rani of Bombay Talkies for work in the films. However, after ‘Jwaar Bhata’, she did not get any film. After 1945 end, Devika Rani left Bombay Talkies, selling all her shares and getting married to ‎Svetoslav Roerich,  a Russian artiste, leaving Mrudula to rot for the remaining 3 years without work and thus spoiling her career.

This also took place with the firebrand actress Shanta Apte, when Prabhat Film company threatened her to take legal action if she worked in films of other companies, breaking their contract. She was a tough person. She staged a demonstration at the gates of Prabhat film company and also sat for Fasting (अन्न सत्याग्रह). Newspaper reporters were called, and for the fear of bad publicity, Prabhat compromised and relieved Shanta Apte unconditionally !

The third name in the cast is Indira (Wadkar). In the 40’s and 50’s, there were 3 Indira named actresses. Indira Wadkar, Indira Billi (heroine of some Punjabi films) and Indira Bansal – the fat comedienne. Hansa Wadkar’s father had three sisters, Kesharbai, Indirabai and Sushilabai. Sushila was married to Master Vinayak, a renowned actor-director of the early era of Indian cinema. The elder sister as well as Indira Wadkar were acting in films and Indira was a classical singer as well. Indira acted in several films including ‘Duniya Kya Hai’ (aka ‘Resurrection’) (1937) and in films of Vinayak’s production company Hans Films like ‘Devata’ (1939) in Marathi. Indira used the surname Wadkar to avoid using the family name Salgaokar, for fear of reprisal from society against women acting in films. Her older sister, Kesharbai, was working in a film made by MG Rangnekar and suggested that Indira Wadkar work in films to sustain her family. She acted in 11 Hindi films. She was a popular shrewish mother in law in Marathi films.

Today’s song is a comedy duet sung by Chitalkar and Shamshad Begum. Enjoy.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Sindbad the Sailor’ (1952).

During our childhood, when we were in school, we were fond of different stories. Our school books contained interesting stories of kings, explorers and great souls. In those days most children used to read outside school books. Some kids were lucky whose grandparents told them stories from mythology and history. This not only gave entertainment but also helped build up good values of life. Some children liked mythology stories, some liked historical and yet some others liked adventure stories. The joint family culture helped develop the right kind of mindset and value addition.

I was a keen reader and I used to read whatever came to my hands – be it a book, magazine or even a newspaper. However, my choice was stories of adventure. Up to 10-15 years of age I read stories of Aladdin, Alibaba, Sindbad, Hatimtai, Navnath stories, Vedic stories, Ramayan-Mahabharat stories, historical stories and such stuff. After that age, I switched over to reading detective and mystery stories by Edgar Wallace, Earl Stanley Gardner, Agatha Christie, Arthur Connan Doyle, Berkeley Grey, Rodrik Graham, Ellery Queen, Brett Haliday, Peter Cheney, Sax Rhomer etc. I know all these names will be Greek and Latin to today’s generation. Those days were different. Today’s scenario is different. there is neither comparison nor criticism. Times change, the world changes. That was good for us, today’s generation likes something else. It is OK.

My point is some stories in this world are evergreen. For them there is no generation barrier, no age difference, no time change. They are immortal, in a sense. Stories from Arabian Nights, Sherlock Holmes, Ramayan – Mahabharat, Greek stories like Helen of Troy etc are ‘all time favorites’. These stories have provided entertainment to several generations. Over the long years, maybe the stories have changed to some extent too. Nevertheless, their entertainment value has remained constant.

Aladdin, Sindbad, Alibaba etc. are stories from The Arabian Nights. The history and story of Arabian Nights is interesting. Stories of Arabian Nights or 1001 Nights are so interesting that for many generations they have been a source of entertainment. Alibaba, Aladdin and Sindbad are the evergreen stories. Arabian Night stories evolved through a story which took place in Persia. King Shahriyar became a woman hater after he found that his wife was unfaithful to him. He not only killed her, but he started marrying a new girl every day, and on the second day of marriage the wife would be killed to avoid unfaithfulness.

The legend says that Scheherazade, the beautiful young daughter of the Vizier, decided to marry the king Shahriyar, against wishes of her family. On the first night of marriage, she started telling him a story which she left unfinished. Curious to know the story’s end, the king postponed her killing. On every night Scheherazade employed the same technique – finish the story from the previous day, from within that story, start a new story, and then keep that one unfinished that night. Thus she continued 1001 stories on 1001 nights. Finally the king changed his opinion and pardoned his wife.

These stories included historical stories, love tales, tragedies, comedies, poems, eroticas, stories of jinn, ghosts and apes, sorcerers, magicians etc. Places like Basra, Istanbul, Baghdad etc. were frequently mentioned in these stories. A lot of films have been made on different popular characters of Arabian Nights. Here is a short history of films made, it may not be complete but surely is an indicator of how the Indian film industry took advantage of the ready made interesting stories. These stories were liked by not only children, but also millions of adults – like me, for example.

A cursory look at the Film Title Index-1913 to 2012 by Hamraz ji tells us that the most popular stories are on Aladdin, Alibaba and Sinbad as well as Gul E Bakavli, besides films on other not so well known characters. In the Silent film era, films on Alibaba were made in 1927 (2 films); Aladdin in 1927 (2), 1928, 1931; Sindbad in 1930(2) and Arabian Nights – 1930. During the Talkie films, the first film on Alibaba was in 1932, then in 40, 46, 54(2), 66, 76, 77, 80 and 2004. On Aladdin in 35, 36, 39, 41, 49, 52 (2), 55, 57, 58, 66, 78, 82(2). On Sindbad in 46(2), 52(2), 58, 65 and 2000.

As always, the creative heads in the story departments of filmmakers invented titles like Alladin Ka Beta, Alladin Ki Beti, Aladdin and Laila. Similarly son and daughter were gifted to Alibaba and Sinbad and films made on them. The funniest title was ‘Sindbad, Alibaba and Aladdin’ (1965) ! On a quick check of HFGK entries for the 1940s decade we find that as many as 9 films were made in 1946 alone on these characters. Added were Baghdad Ka Chor, Hoor e Baghdad, Sher e Baghdad, Arab Ka Chand and Shah e Misr – in which actor Ajit debuted with his real name Hamid.

The frame story of Sindbad is – In the reign of Haroon Al Rasheed, a poor porter (coolie) feels tired and sits on a bench in the garden of a rich person. There he complains to God why there are rich persons who do nothing and poor persons who toil all day. The rich person hears this and calls the porter inside his house. After providing him food etc. they start conversation and learn that names of both are same – SINDBAD. The rich Sindbad tells him how he became so rich and describes his 7 sea voyages one by one. Thus starts each voyage story in detail and in first person. Surprisingly, Sindbad’s is the only story about a sailor’s voyages in the entire 1001 stories of The Arabian Nights !

Today’s song is from one of my favorite films – ‘Sindbad the Sailor’ aka ‘Sindbad Jahaazi’ (1952). The English people always called him SINBAD, but in India he is the popular SINDBAD. The film was produced by Balwant Bhatt and directed by his younger brother Nanabhai Bhatt – an action film veteran. The cast included Naseem – who entered the films in the 1930s with a bang and titled as having a ”pari chehra” due to her beauty. She was on the last part of her career. (After the entry of Madhubala, the crown of Beauty went to her and she was called “The Venus”). Ranjan was the hero. There was Pran and Nirupa Roy – who along with Pran played the role of a Villain in this film. And to imagine that she was already famous for her roles in mythological and religious films ! But then Nirupa Roy had done some action and stunt films too, fighting and winning over big goons ! The rest of the cast consisted of regulars for such types of films.

The Music Director was again my favorite – Chitragupt, the genuine melody maker of Hindi films. This wonderful duet is sung by Rafi and Shamshad, as only they could sing such lovely song. Enjoy this melodious duet. . .

Lyrics

zindagi sanwar gayi mastiyon se bhar gayi
jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi
zindagi sanwar gayi mastiyon se bhar gayi
jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi

baat nayi aa gayi
ho o o o o o
baat nayi aa gayi husn ke guroor mein
sar jhuka diya hai jo ishq ke huzoor mein
baat nayi aa gayi husn ke guroor mein
sar jhuka diya hai jo ishq ke huzoor mein
jaaneman wo aapki berukhi kidhar gayi

jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi

kaun hoon khabar nahin
ho o o o o o
kaun hoon khabar nahin
hosh kho chuki hoon main
bhool kar jahaan ko
teri ho chuki hoon main
kaun hoon khabar nahin
hosh kho chuki hoon main
bhool kar jahaan ko
teri ho chuki hoon main
ek din ki dillagi
kya se kya hai kar gayi
jab se pyaar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi

dil ko aaj kya hua
ho o o o o o
dil ko aaj kya hua
haath mein na aaye hain

dhadkanon ki taar par saaz saaz gaaye hai
dil ko aaj kya hua
haath mein na aaye hain

dhadkanon ki taar par saaz saaz gaye hai
kya kahu tumhe sanam dil pe kya gujar gayi
jab se pyar ki nazar dil mein hai utar gayi
zindagi sanvar gayi mastiyo se bhar gayi
jab se pyar ki nazar dil me hai utar gayi

क्या कहूँ तुम्हें सनम
दिल पे क्या गुज़र गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई
ज़िंदगी संवर गई
मस्तियों से भर गई
जब से प्यार की नज़र
दिल में है उतर गई

Hullo Atuldom

‘Cape Fear’ (1962) was a noir psychological thriller that had Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum and Polly Bergen in the cast and was directed by J Lee Thompson. The movie was based on the 1957 novel ‘The Executioners’ by John D. Macdonald. The movie was the story of an attorney whose family is stalked by a criminal he had helped to send to jail.

‘Mangal Dada (1986) was directed by Ramesh Gupta, had Sunil Dutt, Reena Roy, Amjad Khan, Sarika, Satyendra Kapoor, Achala Sachdev, Farida Jalal, Bhagwan Dada, Birbal etc in its cast. Though it released in 1986 it was launched in 1975. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and songs were written by Shaily Shailendra, Gauhar Kanpuri, and Indeevar. Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mageshkar, Aarti Mukherjee and Manhar Udhas were the playback singers. It seems Reena Roy’s voice was dubbed by someone else.

‘Qayamat’ (1983) was directed by Raj N Sippy. It had Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil in its cast. (Jaya Prada’s was either a special or guest appearance). Majrooh Sultanpuri and RD Burman were the lyricist and music director for songs that were sung by Asha Bhonsle. One song sequence from this movie is posted on the blog as part of Sudhirji’s series on ‘songs repeated in Hindi films’ – this one “Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai“.

‘Kanoon Kya Karega’ (1984) was directed by Mukul Anand and had a cast of Suresh Oberoi, Danny, Deepti Naval, Iftekhar, Shraddha Verma, Sharat Saxena etc. in the cast. The music was by Salil Choudhury but I can’t find any songs attributed to this movie. (I think I have seen this on television).

“Zahreela” (2001) was also directed by Raj N Sippy (he seemed to have been in love with the plot.) The movie’s cast was Mithun Chakravarthy, Om Puri, Kashmera Shah, Gulshan Grover, Shalini Kapoor, etc. The songs were written by Dev Kohli and Anand-Milind were the music directors. Abhijeet, Sudesh Bhonsle, Jaspinder Narula, Purnima, Sonu Nigam, and Preeti Uttam were the playback singers.

I am sure the reader is thinking why I have listed all these movies here. Well all the Hindi films were inspired from ‘Cape Fear’. This statement will give us an idea of the story of all the movies.

This post has a song from ‘Mangal Dada’ which is written by Gauhar Kanpuri and is sung by Manhar Udhas and Lata Mangeshkar.

Gauhar Kanpuri made his debut in Bollywood in 1967 but the real breakthrough came in 1975 when he wrote the songs for Sunil Dutt’s ‘Zakhmee’. After ‘Zakhmee’ he regularly associated with Bappi Lahiri. Many of the songs he wrote went on to become popular:- “Abhi Abhi Thi Dushmani” (Zakhmee), “Ae Mere Humsafar Ae Meri Jaan-e-Jaan” (‘Baazigar’ – 1993), “Tumhe Geeton Mein Dhaaloonga” (‘Saawn Ko Aane Do’ – 1979) to name some. In his career of nearly 25 years he wrote around 300 songs for almost 120 films. The statistics page of our blog says that there are 22 songs written by him on the blog. He was born on 1st October 1932 and passed away on 29th June 2002.

[Author’s Note: The matter for this post has been extracted from Cinemaazi article – ‘Gauhar Kanpuri – Lyricist‘. And I found this site has given atulsongaday.me as its source. Back to starting point? 🙂 ]

30th June is the birth anniversary of Shri Kalyanji Veerji Shah of the Kalyanji-Anandji music director duo. He would have been 94. I am sure we have enough material on the blog on this music duo and Kalyanji bhai, in particular. We all know that the musical journey of Kalyanji Bhai began when he played the ‘been music‘ for ‘Nagin’ in 1954. A journey that went on for almost 46 years with one popular song following the other. Each and every lover of HFM will have a personal playlist of Kalyanji-Anandji song. The blog has 630 songs of this duo from a possible 1435.

Today’s song must be a rare occasion when K-A associated with Gauhar Kanpuri. I haven’t found a video link to the song; but I am assuming that it is filmed on Sunil Dutt and Reena Roy.

This Week, That Year – 9
———————————–
26Jun – 02Jul, 2012

Ah yes, long gap. My intention has been to make this series a weekly affair. But then – ‘man proposes, everybody else disposes’ keeps happening with me. 😀 . And so, intentions aside, this series has been a victim of my preoccupations / laziness / lack of creativity – howsoever I may say it. But of course, no excuses are relevant.

Rear view mirror scenario on the blog, of the week that was – 26th Jun to 2nd July of 2012. Let us take a look at the numbers first.

Here is the table that shows the daily postings on the blog for that week.

A total of 33 songs were posted in that week, at an average of about 4.7 songs per day. The pageant of the calendar covered is four decades – from 1936 to 1976.  Break up of films by decade is as follows,

1930s  –  2 (Both from 1936)
1940s  –  1 (Jugnu, 1947)
1950s  –  12
1960s  –  9
1979s  –  9

No film got repeated and so we covered 33 films during that week, Well actually, it is 32 films and 1 NFS. The NFS was a song by CH Atma.

As many as 9 films made their debut that week. And yes, 2 films got Yippeee’d in that week – ‘Duniya’ (1968) and ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974). Just as an aside, I did a quick check on the Yippeee status of films, till that week. When the week started, we were 3 years, 11 months and 7 days ahead of the blog initiation date of 19 July, 2008. Want to take a guess as to how many films had been Yippeee’d till then? I myself was a little surprised at the number. By that date, we had already Yippeee’d 135 films on the blog. Majority of this list is from the 1950s and 1960s. Surprise item is that there is one film from 1939. Besides, there are 12 films from 1940s, and 17 films from 1970s. The remaining 105 films are from the two decades of 50s and 60s.  We were 6,133 posts old on 26th June.

The week saw two major milestone achieved. On 28th June, with the song “Beech Bajariya Mori Chunariya Sar Se Sarki Jaaye” from film ‘Khoobsurat’ of 1952, SH Behari arrived at his first century milestone. He had made his debut on the blog on 1st December, 2008, and completed his first century in a little more than three and a half years. On 30th June, with the song “Koi Bechaara” from the film ‘Sannata’ of 1966, Lata Mangeshkar breached the 1,800 mark on the blog.

Of all the 33 films that were showcased that week, 25 have been Yippeee’d since then. Seven films continue to be tagged with ‘Pending’ status. One film, ‘Tangaawaali’ from 1955 carries the conditional Yippeee tag. Of the 9 songs in this film, 7 are already posted here. However two songs are not released on 78rpm record. The video of the film has not yet surfaced on public domain. So we tag those two songs as untraceable (UT). And pending their discovery, we tag the film with the status as conditionally Yippeee’d (Yc).

During this current week, two songs of pending films in this week have been posted as part of the ten year challenge series. One song from the 1973 film ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’  – “Haaye Bichhua Das Gayo Re”, was posted by Avinash ji on 27th June, and actually Yippeee’d that film too. And just a little while ago today, Atul ji has posted the song “Kaaraj Ki Jyot Sadaa Hi Jarey” from the 1936 film ‘Amar Jyoti’. So the numbers given above get modified as pending films reduced to 6 and the number of Yippeee’d films now is 26.

And with the song that I bring to the blog in this post, these numbers will change once again. This song is from the 1961 film ‘Hum Matwaale Naujawaan’. This film so far has only one song remaining to be posted. With this post on the blog, the film will also get Yippeee’d. Pending films list is further reduced to 5 and the Yippeee’d films number increases to 27.

The song is a real gem – a vintage Chitragupt creation. The music director is well known for his melodious commpositions. And this song is a very fine example of his creativity and talent. I listened to this song today, after tons of years, jiggling my memory of the radio listening days. And I am surprised that this melody has been waiting in the wings for so long. This film made its debut here on 28th October, 2010. The previous posted song (fifth one from the film) came on to the blog on 29th September, 2018. The final song of the film comes on board today, after more than eleven and a half years of its debut.

The song is such an endearing duet of Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. The lyrics are from the pen of Mahjrooh Sb.

The words of the song indicate as being a male-female duet. But since it is sung as a all female duet, it is possible that this duet may be a performance by two actresses on screen, one taking the role of the male person. The male person is trying to woo the lady and invites her to visit his alley, And the lady appears to be putting up a refusal to the gentleman’s advances.

A very lively melody, that is a hallmark of Chitragupt’s music. Jiggling memories of the wonderful music that we used to enjoy on the radio.

Listen and enjoy.

This is the 1,100th post by Arunkumar Deshmukh.

Blog Day :

5083 Post No. : 17006

POST NO. 1100  !!!!

Today, I have mixed feelings in my mind. One way, I am happy that I am posting my 1,100th article here and on the other way, I am wondering how did I achieve this all? My first post came up here on 1-10-2012, though I had been posting my comments on the Blog’s other posts since the end of 2010. That time I had not even dreamt that I would ever write 1100 articles here or that I would remain connected with this Blog for almost 10 years continuously.
 
A habit of seeing old films and jotting down all the film details in my diary later that day turned into almost a career of writing articles on old films, its people, songs and anecdotes etc, in the last part of my life. Not many people start a second inning after retiring from a job of 35 years – that too absolutely unconnected to what one did in the last so many years !
 
That way my life has been taking unexpected turns at every stage, unconnected with what I did earlier. After coming in the merit list of 12th standard, I joined Medical College. Midway through the first year of M.B.B.S. I left it and joined Agriculture college. I won the All India Best Cadet N.C.C. Trophy at Delhi, as a Senior Under Officer. After graduating in Agriculture, I declined the Govt. Officer’s post in the department and became a Medical Representative in Glaxo, then All India No. 1 company. After 35 years in this field, I retired as General Manager-Marketing !
 
During this period I excelled in Astrology and won the ‘Jyotish Praveen’ title from Poona Mahasabha. I also earned a Brown Belt in Judo, besides acting in dramas etc. I traveled all over India, Pakistan. Nepal and Sri Lanka, U.K. and USA. After retirement I visited Europe, Switzerland and Australia with my wife.
 
With all this done, I turned to my original love – old films and music. I learnt how to use a Computer at the age of 71 years and  using old surviving diaries started writing articles on this Blog. I interviewed close relatives of a few old-time artistes and published them on the internet. I have written on Marathi films, Telugu films and even Kannada films on different blogs. There was a time when I wrote on 5 to 6 different Blogs at a time on different topics like history of films and film songs etc. But my first love has always been AtulSongADay. I honestly believe that I could do all this in this field due to the encouragement of Atul Ji. My heartfelt thanks to him. I must also mention the name of Sudhir ji, who has always supported and helped me. We have been very good friends and are in constant touch. Thanks, Sudhir ji.
In this Blog, I got good company from friends, many I have been able to meet also BUT I HAVE YET TO MEET ATUL JI. I have never even talked to him on phone anytime ! I wish that before I end all this game, we meet at least ONCE !
At this juncture, I did some self assessment. I have kept all the logbooks wherein I first hand-write my articles, before typing them. I have 27 such log books chronicling all my 1100 posts as well as interviews, lined up serially with dates of writing, date of posting on the Blog, serial number, film,song and year details of each post. I found out some statistics.
 
In these 1,100 articles, I have written on songs from films of 1930-40 (152), 1941-50 (417), 1951-60 (412), 1961-70 (46), 1971-80 (27), 1981-90 (8), 1991-2000 (5), 2000-2010(1) 2011-20 (3)  and NFS – 29 = Total 1,100 articles. This works out to 89% posts on films from 1932 to 1960 and only 11%  after 1961. So the fact remains that less than 100 posts are done for films of the post 1961 period, contrary to my estimate of about 200 such posts. This makes me ‘The Grand Old Man’ (पुराण पुरुष) in true sense.
 
Coming to today’s film, ‘Jhamela’ (1953) was a film made by Master Bhagwan after his colossal hit film ‘Albela’ of 1951. Prior to ‘Albela’, Bhagwan was making and directing only stunt films. The making of ‘Jhamela’ has an interesting history. After ‘Albela’, Bhagwan wanted to make a film called ‘Beta Laadla’ with Raj Kapoor and Nargis. He had talked to Raj and he had accepted it for Rs. 55,000 only. Bhagwan had kept RK’s cheque also ready. Meanwhile there was a party to celebrate the ‘Albela’ success, at Sai Prasad, CR’s house.
 
During the party, there was a discussion about Bhagwan’s next social film and PL Santoshi announced ‘Jhamela’ as his next film. Bhagwan was surprised and said,”What jhamela ? There is no story, nothing.” Santoshi said “The story can come later. First you make an announcement. The name is catchy and CR will give music”. Due to pressure from guests like S Mukherjee, CR, Santoshi and other guests, Bhagwan made the official announcement.
 
However, in spite of the success of ‘Albela’, Bhagwan’s luck started going down and down. Though he made many films like ‘Jhamela’, ‘Rangeela’, ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Bhala Admi’, ‘Pyara Dushman’, ‘Kar Bhala’, ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’, ‘Sachche Ka Bolbala’, ‘Hum Deewane’, ‘La Bela’ etc., he did not see same luck again. ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Pyara Dushman’, and ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ did somewhat better.
 
It was from the film ‘Albela’ that CR gave music to Bhagwan’s film in his real name. Prior to this, he gave music to his stunt films as ‘Annasaheb’.This type of use of pen names was followed by many MDs. GM Durrani gave music as Gunjan, SD Batish gave music as Nirmal Kumar. Snehal Bhatkar used several names like Vasudev, B Vasudev, VG Bhatkar and Snehal, before taking up another pen name Snehal Bhatkar for the rest of his career. Actually his name was Vasudeo and Snehal was his daughter’s name. These are well known, but today I will tell you 2 pen names FIRST time on the internet – on this Blog! Hardly anybody knows that Anil Biswas gave music to film ‘Begunah’ (1949) in the name of Haribhai. His co-MD in this film was Shyamu – none other than C Ramchandra. This information is given in the Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema by Rajadhyaksha on pages 67 and 190.
 
Although the team for ‘Jhamela’ was the same as Albela and they tried their best, still ‘Jhamela’ was not successful. Somebody had told Bhagwan that titles ending with ‘la‘ were lucky for him. Bhagwan tried this even, but he did not succeed in films like ‘Jhamela’, ‘Rangeela’, ‘Kar Bhala’, ‘Sachche Ka Bolbala’ and ‘La-Bela’. All this led to Bhagwan’s downfall to rock bottom. He had to sell his houses, cars etc and go back to the chawl where he had started from in his career. Bhagwan is a real case of ‘Rags to Riches to Rags‘.
 
Today’s song is a duet of Lata and Chitalkar.  I like duets of 2 pairs – Hemant Kumar – Lata, and Chitalkar – Lata, in that order. Even for my 1000th post on 18-8-2021  I had selected a CR song, but it was a chorus of Amirbai, Rajkumari, Durrani, Khan Mastana and CR. Today is 18-6-2022 – a gap of 10 months and 100 songs…an average of 10 posts every month for the last 10 months !
 
I once again thank all those who helped me in this fruitful journey. Enjoy the CR-Lata duet.

pachhtaaye tumhen munh laga ke
parvaah bhi yahan hai kisi ko

suno ji suno ji suno ji
hamen yaad nahin hai ye baat
kaho ji
kaho ji

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 18#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Subah O Shaam’ (1972). This is one of the movies still missing on the blog. I became aware of this movie almost seven years back through HFGK when I got my first copy of HFGK i.e. HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). I had then planned to present a Rafi song from this movie – “Meri Biwi Jahaan Se Niraali Hai”. I was actually looking for songs in the category ‘praising the wife/spouse song’; later on I dropped that idea (something for the good I think). Today I am presenting a duet song from this movie, which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar.

‘Subah O Shaam’ (1972) was directed by Chanakya for Shri Ganesh Prasad Movies, Madras. It included in its star-cast Waheeda Rehman, Sanjeev Kumar, Fardin, Loreta, Irin, Simin Gafri, Azar, Meeri, Kahanmoyi, Tajdudd, Tehrani, Rafi and others. This movie also had Rafiyee and Paiman as child artists. As mentioned in HFGK this movie was the ‘First Indo-Iranian Hindi Picture’, and that explains us the reason for the unfamiliar artists’ name in the star-cast of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.08.1972.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Here is the list of songs in this movie as provided in HFGK.

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Chhod Mera Haath Mujhe Peene De Lata Mangeshkar
02 Laa Laalalaa… Saaqi Ki Zaroorat Hai Naa Jaam Ki Lata Mangeshkar
03 Teri Meri Meri Teri Nazar Lad Gayi , Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
04 Tadap Tadap Ke Bhi Aye Yaar Ham To Jee Lenge Lata Mangeshkar
05 Meri Biwi Jahaan Se Niraali Hai, … Mohd Rafi
06 Mere Laal, Mere Laal, Aaj Tera Janamdin Hai … Lata Mangeshkar

From the above table we can see that this movie had four solo songs by Lata Mangeshkar and one solo song by Mohd Rafi. There was only one duet and that was also the only song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle in this movie. Today we listen to this duet song. Only audio of this song is available so it is not clear on whom this song is picturised. However I guess that it is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman. I would request knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs, story etc.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding today’s movie which is the 125th film in the alphabetical list of films of 1972, as per Geet Kosh. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Mathura Na Jaao Bhai Kaashi Na Jaao”  from movie ‘Shiv Bhakt Baabaa Baalaknaath’ to today’s movie song-post.

The movie had eight songs in it according to HFGK, but one noticed that song number 8 (singers uncredited) is the same song as song number 5. So in reality, “Lahu Ke Do Rang”(1979) has seven songs in it and not 8.

Four songs have been covered in the blog.

As blog ten year challenge, here is the fifth song from “Lahu Ke Do Rang”(1979). This song is sung by kishore Kumar and Sulakshana Pandit. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Vinod Khanna and Prema Narayan.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day:

4909 Post No. : 16723

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 8
———————————–
07Nov – 13Nov, 2011

OK yes, the tag line is correct, but the date is definitely out of sequence. Sincere apologies for this parallax effect. This is not the week of 7th Nov. This post should have come at least 6 weeks ago. And truly, the post template and lyrics and all the tag stuff was ready then, but the words to compose the post were trapped behind some real and imagined ‘constraints’.

Ah but you will say, why pitch in with the week of 7th Nov now, six weeks later. Well surely, for a special reason. That was a special week, with a very special milestone reached by the blog. On Saturday, the 13th November, 2011, we reached the 5000th post. That day, the blog had been in existence for 1,213 days – exactly 3 years, 3 months and 26 days. And we completed 5,000 posts, at a simple daily average of 4+ songs – day on day.

Superlatives have become repetitive on this blog now, as we have written time and again about the blog’s progress over the years. But the wonder is that the wonder simply does not cease to amaze – the wonder of the blog itself, of being on the blog, of being part of the bandwagon. Whether the pace is slow or fast, we have never been without steam.

Looking back then, from this 13+ years vantage point, it seems like just a speck on the past time line. But just think about it – about the feelings then, on arriving at the 5000th station of this journey. And I am sure, as we looked ahead at the future, this 16,700+ post compendium, was not even visible on the time line. And probably not even in the minds of the bandwagoneers. Some member or members did mention 10,000, maybe. But going beyond that, then crossing the 15,000 mark, and still continue to merrily chug along – probably that thought did not even cross anyone’s mind. The ambience has changed so much since those days 10 years ago. Now, the feeling is that nothing is impossible for this bandwagon and its fearless leader.

It was a dhamaaka celebration. A celebration that store the hearts of everyone – literally. The blog ne loot liya mil ke gaana sun’ne waalon ko. . .

It was a calculated and a planned choice – the song I mean. Lyrics from the pen of Shewan Rizvi, music composed by Bulo C Rani and rendered with such zest and fervor by Ismail Azaad Qawwaal. And on screen, a name that we had some hard time digging up and confirming – Sheikh, the comedian. Yes, the qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne”. The qawwali that merits to be counted amongs the top 5 iconic qawaalis in Hindi films. That was the choice for the 5000th milestone song for the blog. The write up that day was a shared effort by Atul ji, Raja ji and yours truly. It truly is an honor to be part of that write up.

Ten years later, as we look back, it surely is a major joy that we picked this song for the 5000th milestone.

Now let’s play the numbers game for the week that was – from 7th to 13th November. A whopping 50 songs were posted that week, for an average of little above 7 songs per day. Quite a prolific week that was. Total number films showcased were 43. The film ‘Khel’ of 1950 made four appearances, the film ‘Mayur Pankh’ of 1956 made 3 appearances and ‘Anurodh’ from 1977 made two. The film name ‘Taqdeer’ appeared twice in that week, albeit from different years – 1943 and 1967.

The decade of 1941-50 was represented by 11 songs, the decade of 1951-60 by 12 songs, the decade of 1961-70 by 17 songs, the decade of 1971-80 by eight songs, and the 80s and 90s were represented by one song each. And so 1960s was the prominent decade with almost 30% songs posted that week.

As many as 13 films made their debut this week, and yes, 3 films also got Yippeee’d already. All three films are from 1970s – ‘Amar Prem’ (1971), ‘Mili’ (1975) and ‘Anurodh’ (1977). Since that week was done, 18 more films that appeared in that week are Yippeee’d by now.

We had two major artist milestone also come up that week. Hasrat Jaipuri completed 300 appearances on the blog, on 12th November with the song “Tu Kyun Mujhko Pukaare” from the film ‘Mayur Pankh’. And then on the 13th, the 5000th post also celebrated the century of songs composed by Bulo C Rani.

Here is the week’s data in table form.

Since 13th November of 2011, after this iconic qawwaali was posted, just one more song from the film ‘Al Hi Lal’ has appeared on the blog. That song is “Amma Main Bada Hoke Bahut Kaam Karoongaa” which appeared on the blog on 29th July, 2017. Here is one more song from this film – a duet sung by Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur. This is a lilting melodious song af a lovers’ tete-a-tete – a typical running-around-the-tree love song. On screen, this song is lip synced by Mahipal and Shakila.

The song is written by Shewan Rizvi, music composed by Bulo C Rani. The lovers are complaining about stolen hearts, and are naming each other as the thief responsible for it. Apparently it seems that once the qawwaali became the big hit that it is, somehow the remaining songs got very little attention from the listeners. This song is a wonderful one in its own right, but not so well known. I too got to hear it for the first time as I was searching for other songs of this film.

Listen to this lovely duet, I am sure you will like it.

 

Song – Tum Ho Dil Ke Chor, Kare Dil Shor  (Al Hi Laal) (1958) Singer – Manna Dey, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Shewan Rizvi, MD – Bulo C Rani
Manna Dey + Suman Kalyanpur

Lyrics

tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya. . .
o ho ho haan
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

aa haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

bedard ne deke dard
kiya dil sard
nigaahen pher ke
teri chaah ne
dil ki aah ne loota
raah mein hamko gher ke
laakh bachaaya
bach nahin paaya
dil ye hamaara
tum par aaya
o ho ho haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

o mast nazar
jaata hai kidhar
ik teer sa dil pe maar ke
badnaam na ho
badnaam na kar
ilzaam na de bekaar ke
raaz hamaara
tu ne jaana
jaan na le
bedard zamaana
o ho ho haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

sharma ke na ja
tadpa ke na ja
iqraar to kar le pyaar ka
jab aankh jhuke
aur lab na hiley
ye matlab hai iqraar ka
neechi nigaahen
dil ki kahaani
pyaar ki hai ye
khaas nishaani
o ho ho haan
tum ho dil ke chor
kare dil shor
tumhen pehchaan liya
aaj khula ye raaz
hamaara raaz
kisi ne jaan liya

तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया॰ ॰ ॰
ओ हो हो हाँ
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

आ हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

बेदर्द ने देके दर्द
किया दिल सर्द
निगाहें फेर के
तेरी चाह ने
दिल की आह ने लूटा
राह में हमको घेर के
लाख बचाया
बच नहीं पाया
दिल ये हमारा
तुम पे आया
ओ हो हो हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

ओ मस्त नज़र
जाता है किधर
इक तीर सा दिल पे मार के
बदनाम ना हो
बदनाम ना कर
इल्ज़ाम ना दे बेकार के
राज़ हमारा
तू ने जाना
जान ना ले
बेदर्द ज़माना
ओ हो हो हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया

शर्मा के ना जा
तड़पा के ना जा
इक़रार तो कर ले प्यार का
जब आँख झुके
और लब ना हिले
ये मतलब है इक़रार का
नीची निगाहें
दिल की कहानी
प्यार की है ये
खास निशानी
ओ हो हो हाँ
तुम हो दिल के चोर
करे दिल शोर
तुम्हें पहचान लिया
आज खुला ये राज़
हमारा राज़
किसी ने जान लिया
