ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————

“Love is so short, forgetting is so long” – ah, this quote by Pablo Neruda! How true it is!! So simple yet so profound. . .  Don’t we all agree? Love, that feeling which each and every living being experiences for sure in its lifetime. Each one of us would have definitely celebrated it many times in our lives.

And this feeling is celebrated in this song too. Naqsh Lyallpuri, the lyricist puts it down so very simply. The pain of love is sweet and lovable. Its beautiful and it is the sustenance of two hearts that are in love. Love is serene and at the same time exciting. Lovers meet every day but that is inadequate, the longing to meet again remains. Hunger for the loved feeling, however much it is satisfied by these meetings, it remains. It is a feeling, a feeling forever. This is how the lyricist expresses the feeling in this song. His choice of words is simple, the lines are short but very effective in conveying the sentiment. Khayyaam, one of my favourite music composers has composed a distinctive kind of tune. The singing of Asha and Kishore is adorable.

Coming back to Pablo Neruda (12 Jul, 1904 – 23 Sep, 1973), the poet I alluded to in the beginning. He is a very well-known poet from Chile, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. He was also a diplomat and politician. This is a rare combination I feel, a poet and a politician!! Very unique. He is known for love poems. I found these lines by him fascinating.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

Anybody that agrees with the quote? Yes, we do. At least, the majority of us. For few it is “Love is for lifetime etc.”. For people who don’t fall into either category, they should do this – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Lee“.

Ah, this is the first song posted by our indefatigable Atul ji. From then to now, it is has been a decade. I am yet to find a person who is as consistent as Atul ji. His very able co-travellers, Sudhir ji and Arun ji are no less consistent. All these three are tireless wayfarers of the musical journey that is our blog. Arun ji is in fact the Bhishm Pitamah of Hindi Films. How can I forget the others? I cannot, they all contribute regularly. Each of them is unique in their own ways.  Unlike me who makes a guest appearance now and then!! Well, I was prodded by Sudhir ji into writing this. I feel grateful to him that he has not forgotten a nacheez like me. I am thankful to Raja ji for allowing to write on a song which he intended to write on. And to Avinash ji for providing the lyrics and all meta-data associated with song. And to Pradeep for being an inspiration. There I go accusing him again! Thank you all 😊

I am sure that the journey will continue until the end of our days on this beautiful Earth. Let us contradict Neruda now. Love for music is so long and cannot be forgotten. Neruda, are you listening? I am being a little cheeky 😉

Here is wishing the blog a long and musically fulfilled life!!

Blog Day : 3652 Post No. : 14505

Today is the death anniversary of one of India’s biggest superstars, Rajesh Khanna, affectionately referred to as Kaka. He passed away on the 18th of July 2012. I remember being shocked to hear of his death – and even wrote an emotional post on my blog on the occasion. Although I did know that he had been suffering from cancer, the news hit me hard. Today, it is already 6 years since his death. How time flies!

Maybe it’s a reflection of the person he was, but it seems to me that any conversation about Kaka invariably goes beyond his films, and delves into his personal life and relationships. His, admittedly none too positive, image seems to take over – at the cost of discussion about his films. This is unfortunate – but, to some extent, Kaka probably brought this on himself.

We all know he let success go to his head – and paid a heavy price for it. Like I’ve said before, maybe that was one of his roles here on this earth. To NOT be a role model, to be someone that can be held up as an example by parents to children of how NOT to let success get to your head. Anyway, later in life, Kaka did admit to the mistakes he’d made – and, on this Remembrance Day, I think I’d like to not talk about his mistakes. I’ve discussed them at length in previous posts – I don’t want to repeat myself.

Today, as I remember him, all I want to do is to thank him for the performances he gave me when I was just a young boy, growing up in the late 60s / early 70s. I’m going to pause just a bit here to remember those performances.

There were many – his filmography of that period and his success rate would put any other actor in the shade. Not even the big 3 (Dilip, Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand) who came before him could deliver that many hits in that short a time frame. Or the biggie who followed right after. But personally I couldn’t care less about the box-office success of those films. I was just a young boy – what did I know about the box-office? All I knew was, there was this “hero” on screen who, through his smile, or tilt of the head, or “guru” kurta, or dialogue delivery had me mesmerized in film after film, singing one blissful song after another (at that time I didn’t know about playback).

I didn’t always understand the storyline, or even all the dialogues, but everytime he would be romancing  the heroine, whether it was Sharmila or Mumtaz or Tanuja or Hema or another, it felt like all was just perfect with the world. It wasn’t as if other heroes didn’t have romantic scenes with the heroines, but somehow it seemed different in Kaka films. Later, when I thought about this, I felt it was possibly because romance was usually intrinsic to Kaka films. It formed part of the main plot itself. Whereas for others, it was an important element no doubt, but the storyline often had a crime-related plot – like smuggling.  Note that wherever romance IS the plot, the film seems very Kaka-like. For example, ‘Aa Gale Lag Ja’ (1973) could very well have been a Kaka film, though it had Shashi Kapoor in the main lead.

Of course, it was not always a happy ending. Kaka would often die in the film, breaking my heart.  This only made the film a bigger hit, so storylines were devised accordingly.

I thoroughly enjoyed those films – have fond memories of ‘Aradhana’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’, ‘Kati Patang’, ‘Dushman’, ‘Apna Desh’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’, and so many others. Whether it was “Mere Sapnon Ki Rani”, “Yahaan Wahaan Saare”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, “Waada Tera Waada”, “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona”, “Dilbar Jaani”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” or any of his numerous hits of the time, I knew them all by heart – all stanzas. We’d often sing these songs amongst friends.

At that time I had no idea about Kaka beyond his screen presence. Ignorance was truly bliss.

Then things began changing.

Suddenly he didn’t seem to have the same magic anymore. I tend to associate this with his “long hair” phase but, to be fair to him, that was just the fashion of the time. Hamming seemed to have set in – even the films seemed to lack that romantic feel about them. The last couple of movies I remember of that era that I saw, and could accept, were ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974) and ‘Prem Kahaani’ (1975).

Mehbooba (1976) was probably the first big shock for me. It was highly hyped at the time – what with the two biggest names, Kaka and Hema, as the lead actors. Not to mention RD Burman’s music. I remember the film being a big flop. Later I read that the decline started even earlier but for me, at that age, Mehbooba was the marker.

That was a terrible period for him. Flop after flop. I clearly remember ‘Bundalbaaz’, ‘Chalta Purza’, ‘Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka’, even BR Chopra’s ‘Karm’ (another much-awaited film) – all failed. But there were more.

Oh, one thing. I said I didn’t know about box-office but there was one indicator for me. I used to travel by school bus to school, 30 km away. En-route there was a film theatre. From the bus, we could see which film was running. That gave us a pretty good idea of hit or flop. I remember ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’ running for many weeks, whereas ‘Bundalbaaz’ and ‘Chalta Purza’ just came and went.

After watching ‘Aashiq Hoon Baharon Ka’, I really couldn’t take it anymore. What had happened to my “Ye Shaam Mastaani” Rajesh Khanna? How had he morphed into this “I am in love, you are in love, he is in love, she is in love” Rajesh Khanna? I stopped seeing his movies. I couldn’t bear to.

Later, in the mid-80s, I did watch a few – but only because they were on Doordarshan. ‘Thodisi Bewafai’ (1980), ‘Avtaar’ (1983) and ‘Aakhir Kyon’ (1985). I quite liked them. But only these.

For the next 25 years, I stayed away from Kaka films that I had not watched. Sure, I watched the old ones to relive their magic. But none of his post-1977 films. Only a few years ago, I mustered the courage to watch this category. I think it had to do with his death. Maybe I felt I was doing him grave injustice by avoiding these films. After all, he must have worked just as hard in them, as in his early films. So why not at least give them a shot? For Kaka’s sake.

I started with the more successful ones – at least those with popular songs. Like ‘Agar Tum Na Hote’ (1983), ‘Kudrat’ (1981), ‘Rajput’ (1982). I kept my expectations very low. I quite liked all these films. And I was quite impressed by Kaka too. I don’t recall seeing much of the hamming  that I had dreaded. Sure they were very different from his early 1970s films – but that’s to be expected.

Recently I got into the mood again – and did a Kaka binge. I watched ‘Amrit’ (1986), ‘Dhanwaan’ (1981), ‘Dard’ (1981), ‘Aanchal’ (1980), ‘Janta Hawaldar’ (1979) and ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), all within the last month. As usual, keeping expectations low. I liked some more than the others, of course. But what I realized is each of their story lines is very different from the rest. That also made me realize that Kaka’s movies often had that – different story lines. This, at a time in the late 70s or in the 80s, when usually you had formulaic dhishum-dhishum films, either as multi-starrers, or hero taking revenge on the villain.

I now plan to watch more Kaka films of the period. Even if they’re not good, that’s ok. I keep my expectations low – and I’m watching them for Kaka. His looks aren’t what they were in the early 1970s – but that only seems to make him all the more real for me. And, worst case, the film will probably have a reasonable story line.

Moving on to today’s song.

Now having watched all these Kaka films recently, and most of them not being much represented on the blog, I was somewhat spoilt for choice today. I could have picked at least half a dozen Kaka songs from these films alone – and I do plan to write up more from these films. But for today, I’ve chosen “Paise Ka Kaajal” from ‘Aanchal’ (1980).

Firstly, this song comes in the category of “ye gaana IS film mein hai?” for me. I’d heard it all those years ago but didn’t know which film it was from. Secondly, ‘Aanchal’ is not represented yet on the blog, so it makes its debut today. Thirdly, it is a song & dance – and I quite like song & dance. 🙂 What I particularly liked about this one, apart from the song itself, is Kaka’s style. Not that he was a great dancer, but his style here reminded me of the Kaka of the early 1970s, when he’d dance similarly opposite heroines of the time. 🙂

The film stars Kaka, Rekha, Raakhee, Amol Palekar and Prem Chopra. It’s a village-based story, where Kaka and Amol Palekar are brothers, with Raakhee married to Amol Palekar. Since Kaka is her husband’s younger brother, Raakhee treats him with great affection. Kaka too has highest regard for his bhabhi. Prem Chopra, who has a score to settle with Amol Palekar, plays mischief, creating misunderstanding in his mind about the relationship between Raakhee and Kaka. Also, doing the same to Rekha, who is in love with Kaka.

To be honest, the film picks up only in the second half – the first half is rather slow. But maybe it is a build-up to show the relationships between the characters. I was rather keen for the film to get on with the plot. 🙂

In any case, do listen to this fairly catchy tune composed by RD Burman.  Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. As usual, the lyrics have been provided to me by Avinash ji. He is always very helpful in this respect, sending me lyrics for any post I plan to write.

Not only this, he is a huge Kaka fan – a much bigger fan than I am. Avinash ji did tell me that he might not be able to write a post for Kaka on this occasion. So this is our joint tribute to Kaka, as we remember him fondly today.

Kaka, hope you are at peace, wherever you are. And thanks for all the memories.

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 11
———————————————————————

All right, the occasion demands that I write a post.  It is the tenth anniversary of the blog, ek post to banti hai. 🙂

So like all things transient, whether one is or isn’t the world moves on.  Time and tide wait for none.  I said this to my brother a few days ago.

Is it all make believe ?

What is real here ?

What exactly is happening ?

What are we doing here ?

What is the purpose of all this maya jaal ?

Anyways let me delude all and sundry that any of this matters.

Checking the date of my last post in the blog, I realise it is almost 2 years ago.  I really didn’t mean to deprive the blog of my ramblings for so long, whether it makes sense or not.

As always there is no dearth of bollywood songs.  My search among celebratory songs kept coming back to this one from ‘Hollywood/Bollywood’ (2002).  This movie is Canadian production directed by Deepa Mehta.   This is a light hearted love story, containing just the right dose of drama, songs at regular frequency, with almost black humour, of Dina Pathak mouthing dialogues such as “I am not here to bury Ceaser, but to praise him”. How did they manage not to draw the curtains after this one ? Not an easy task, this editors job. This, in the last 10 minutes of the movie.  No need to say there never was a chance for  anymore goals in the game.

So here is the song, a firm favourite of the last decade. Both the lyricists and music director are new names for the blog. The singing by Sonu Nigam and Alisha Chinoy is very peppy and infectious with a spontaneity which makes this song special.  This also reaffirms my belief that Sonu Nigam is the true disciple and carries the torch for Rafi  Sahab’s singing legacy.

Congatulations on the 10th anniversary of the blog to all involved.  Thanks to Atul ji and Sudhir Sir, it feels good to write about things and nothings.

sitaron se aage jahaan aur bhi hain
abhi ishq ke imtihan aur bhi hain
 
tihi zindagi se nahin yeh fazaayein
yahaan sainkadon kaaravaan aur bhi hain
 
qanaa’at na kar aalam-e-rang-o-bu par
chaman aur bhi, aashiyaan aur bhi hain  
 
agar kho gaya ek nasheman to kya gham
muqaamaat-e-aah-o-fughaan aur bhi hain
 
tu shaaheen hai, parvaaz hai kaam tera
tere saamne aasmaan aur bhi hain
 
isi roz-o-shab mein ulajh kar nah rah jaa
ke tere zamaan-o-makaan aur bhi hain
 
gaye din ke tanhaa thaa main anjuman mein
yahaan ab mere raaz-daan aur bhi hain

 


Song – Rang Rang Mere Rang Rang Mein (Bollywood Hollywood) (2002) Singer – Sonu Nigam, Alisha Chinoy, Lyrics – Jaideep / Taabish Romani, MD – Sandeep Chowta
Sonu Nigam + Alisha Chinoy

Lyrics

aaa ha
oo ho
hoye
rang rang mere rang rang mein
rang jaayegi tu rang
sang sang mere sang sang mein
sang aayegi sang  
ho oh ho
oh ho

ho oh ho
oh ho

 
hey..ea ye..ea
rang rang mere rang rang mein
rang jaayega tu rang

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘न’ – नज़र ने लूटा है, अदा ने मारा है ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

फूलों से दोस्ती है, काँटों से यारी है ॰ ॰ ॰
ऐसी मज़े की प्यारे ज़िंदगी हमारी है ॰ ॰ ॰

ज़िंदगी हो भी तो जैसी तुम्हारी थी, वैसी हो॰ ॰ ॰ कोई अच्छा था तो वो भी दोस्त था, कोई अच्छा नहीं था तो भी यार ही था। A big heart such as yours is a rarity in humans.

– – – –

The first line of the song and the mind is tuned in for another gem of a creation from Chitragupt. This next song in this series is vintage Chitragupt.

The film is ‘Police Detective’ from 1960. The melody was still the reigning empress, and the creators of the likes of Chitragupt were still at their inspired best. Such a lovely playful song of two hearts in love, expressing their hearts to each other.

The film is a production from the banner of Neo Light Films, Bombay and is produced by Balwant Bhatt and Ram Kamlani. It is directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of actors listed for the film is impressive and includes Shyama, Sudesh, David, Jaishri Gadkar, Lilian, Ram Kamlani, Helen, Anwar, Shammi, Bhagwan, Meena, Genius, Susheel Kumar, Jai Kumar, Nisar, Roshanlal, Ramesh Roy, Saleem, Ghulam Rasool, Gani, Mohammad Ali, Sevanand, Ameer, Douglas, Tiger (Dog), and Pedro, the human chimpanzee. Hmm. . . Sevanand – interesting, would have liked to see an image of this actor. . . whether any similarity to Dev Anand. 🙂

Six songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan. Two of these songs are already showcased here on our blog. This is the third one to come on board from this film. The singing companion of Rafi Sb in this song is Lata Mangeshkar. Given the list of actors, this song is most likely picturized on the lead pair of Shyama and Sudesh Kumar. I request other readers and friends to please comment on this guess.

Listen to this lovely tête-à-tête between two hearts in love – complaints of hearts stolen through deceit and ripostes of challenges that if this is deceit, then welcome to take back the heart. Wonderful play of words, and a lovely tune that ties them together. A pleasure to listen.

Song – Nazar Ne Loota Hai, Ada Ne Maara Hai  (Police Detective) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
agar ye dhokha tha
to kis ne roka tha
laga ke dil ye kehte ho
ke dil bechaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

hamaare haal pe to ye zamaana hansta hai
ke jiske paas dil ho wo kabhi to phansta hai
hamaare haal pe to ye zamaana hansta hai
ke jiske paas dil ho wo kabhi to phansta hai
to phir kyon rotey phirtey ho
ke dil nazron ka maara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

hamaare naaz bhi sehne padenge ulfat mein
likhe hain sainkdo chakkar
tumhaari kismat mein
hamaare naaz bhi sehne padenge ulfat mein
likhe hain sainkdo chakkar
tumhaari kismat mein
jo hum pe guzregi seh lenge
jab dil tum pe waara hai
agar ye dhokha tha
to kis ne roka tha
laga ke dil ye kehte ho
ke dil bechaara hai
nazar ne loota hai
ada ne maara hai
haseenon ka
ye dhokha bhi
bada hi pyaara hai
nazar ne loota hai

नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
अगर ये धोखा था
तो किस ने रोका था
लगा के दिल
ये कहते हो
के दिल बेचारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

हमारे हाल पे तो ये ज़माना हँसता है
के जिसके पास दिल हो वो कभी तो फँसता है
हमारे हाल पे तो ये ज़माना हँसता है
के जिसके पास दिल हो वो कभी तो फँसता है
तो फिर क्यों रोते फिरते हो
के दिल नज़रों का मारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

हमारे नाज़ भी सहने पड़ेंगे उलफत में
लिखे हैं सैकड़ों चक्कर
तुम्हारी किस्मत में
हमारे नाज़ भी सहने पड़ेंगे उलफत में
लिखे हैं सैकड़ों चक्कर
तुम्हारी किस्मत में
जो हम पे गुज़रेगी सह लेंगे
जब दिल तुम पे वारा है
अगर ये धोखा था
तो किस ने रोका था
लगा के दिल
ये कहते हो
के दिल बेचारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है
अदा ने मारा है
हसीनों का
ये धोखा भी
बड़ा ही प्यारा है
नज़र ने लूटा है

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘द’ – दिल्ली वाले साब गजब कर डाला रे ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

खुदा भी आसमान से जब ज़मीं पर देखता होगा॰ ॰ ॰

तेरी आवाज़ को किसने बनाया, सोचता होगा॰ ॰ ॰

The voice, that defined a new benchmark for divinity; no wonder if God Himself would be wondering, how such a human voice got created. . .

– – – –

Presenting the next song in this series.

This one turns out to be a fun exchange between a lady and a gentleman, who most likely are a husband-wife pair. From the lyrics, one can surmise that the gentleman works with the police force and has recently been promoted to be a ‘thaanedar’, or in other words – the inspector who heads a police station. In today’s parlance, this would be equivalent of an SHO – Station House Officer.

So the lady is expressing wonder at the action of some higher up officer – ‘Dilli Waale Saahb’ to make her husband an inspector. She seems not being able to believe it – ‘gajab kar daala re’. And then the rest of the song follows, with some fun lyrics as the two exchange some humorous comments. Listen to the lyrics, and the enjoy the fun.

The song is from the film ‘Bhikhaari’ from 1949. Now a very interesting thing noted in Geet Kosh. This film seems to be the same as the 1948 film ‘Satyanarayan’. As we review the information about these two films, all the demographics, as in production banner, director, music director, lyricists and actors, all are exactly the same. And further, the list of songs is almost identical. The nine songs are listed with exactly the same mukhda. The film ‘Satyanarayan’ has one extra item, as in instrumental music recording. Interesting thing is that the serial nos. of the gramophone records are different. This indicates that the songs were released twice on two different sets of gramophone records, under the respective names of two films.

The film is produced under the banner of Bhagwan Pictures, Bombay. Two names are listed as directors – Kumar Sahu and R Vishnuram. The nine songs are penned by four lyricists – Pt Indra, Madhukar (a name that is likely the same as Madhukar Rajasthani), Sewak and Surjeet (again, a name that is likely the same as Surjeet Sethi). Music is composed by Hansraj Behl. List of actors includes Ranjeet Kumari, Roop Kumari, Jawahar Kaul, Balakram, Sewak, B Gill, SP Mahindra, Chanchal Kumari, Leela Gupte, and Laxmi Chand.

The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi Sb and Binapani Mukherji. Enjoy this fun song – another addition to the list of memorable duets of Rafi Sb.

 

Song – Dilli Waale Saahb Ghajab Kar Daala Re  (Bhikhaari) (1949) Singer – Binapani Mukherji, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Pt Indra, MD – Hansraj Behl

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 4 # Nitin Mukesh #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fourth article in this series where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

As Gulzar Sahab has said in one of his famous albums. . .

door kahin jab wo pahaad ka tilaa baadlon se dhhak jaata tha
to ek aawaaz sunaayi deti

Zaahir si baat hain ki umr ke jis padaav par aap honge, aur jo yaadein aapke zehan mein bas gayin hongi, aap ko bhi kuchh aawaazein sunaayi deti hongi, aur ho sakta hai unka andaaz shaayad kuchh alag sa hota hoga, jaise ki mujhe lagta hai ki ye aawaaz. . .

Noorie. . .     Noorie. . .

Lekin ye aawaaz to mere dil ki gehraaiyon mein tab se hi utar gayi thi. . .

Since, and so far, I vaguely remember to have heard this song playing on the radio in home and too on a dark rainy night. Maybe I was in half sleep when this song was playing on radio. Even today whenever I get to listen to this song, I have the same nostalgic feeling always

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

May be that time I didn’t even have this knowledge of who was singing but as I grew up and this voice also grew up over the years leaving behind very few yet unforgettable gems in the history of HFM. The most popular of them all, I think, must be this,

zindagi kin aa toote ladi ee
pyaar kar le ghadi do ghadi

Yes!! Today we are discussing Nitin Mukesh under this series of ‘Special Voices’. As I took this journey through his biography and filmography (or discography), as usual, I am filled with ‘nostalgia’ and the years and those songs which brings back many memories. Maybe he has sung very less songs in numbers but almost all of them are so special and unique that one cannot forget them easily.

Nitin Mukesh was born on 27th June, 1950, to a celebrity father who by then had established himself in HFM. There were days he saw his father struggling and they didn’t have enough money to pay even his school fees. And on the other hand, Mukesh, who unlike him wanted that his children get good higher education, sent Nitin to the London School of Economics. However, like his father Nitin was also not interested and not good in studies and hence requested his father to allow him to come back home and leave studies and pursue singing. There after Nitin used to accompany his father on all of his musical tours and stage programmes. He was doing this since he was nine.

As his father Mukesh used sing his own songs in these programmes he asked his son that he should sing other singers’ or specifically Rafi Saab’s songs. Nitin Mukesh remembering this has talked about how great his father was and how much both of them respect and loved Rafi Saab’s singing. It is said that Raj Kapoor wanted that Mukesh’s son should sing a song for his son Rishi in the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) and so Nitin had given his voice for Rishi Kapoor in this song.

Earlier Nitin Mukesh was mainly interested in singing and doing stage programmes only, however on insistence from his father he took on to singing in his movies and thus make a debut in singing with this song from ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’ (1974), a duet with Vani Jairam,

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

Moving forward with Gaapoochi Gaapoochi Gam Gam’ (‘Trishul’, 1978) and ‘Wo Aurat hai tu mehbooba’ from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ also of 1978. And reaching the popular heights with Zindagi ki naa toote ladi’ in ‘Kranti’ (1981). He continued the same magic with two songs from the movie ‘Nakhuda-1981’ of which “Suno Ik Baat Bolen” is already posted on the blog. After that very few playback songs, as I think he mainly got involved with doing stage shows only and singing ‘bhajans’.

During those years I was in Kota (Rajasthan) and I had bought his album on cassette, ‘Nehanjali’ by HMV which had ‘bhajans’ composed by Shekhar Sen. This album was released in 5/89 and it was added to my collection on 28.10.1989 (may be around ‘Diwali’ festival, if I am correct).

However the songs of ‘Eeshwar’ (1989) especially “Ram ji Ne Dhanush Toda”  and one song in particular from the movie ‘Clerk’ (1989) – “Rakh Gita Par Haath”, are those which were quite good and were appreciated well, with ‘Ye Paisa Bolta Hai” from ‘Kaala Baazaar’ being the most popular. Other favorites that I want to list are – “Tu Mujhe Suna Main Tujhe Sunaaun’ from ‘Chaandni’ (1989), and ‘So Gaya Ye Jahaan’  topping the popularity charts in the previous year of 1988. Among his other songs I like ‘Zindagi Ka Naam Dosti’ from ‘Khudgarz’ (1987}, and “Dil Ne Dil Se Kya Kahaa” from ‘Aaina’ (1993). However, as said earlier Nitin Mukesh had been continuing with his stage shows, and we can find the details of his latest tours on his website here.

On our blog so far, we have only four of Nitin Mukesh songs (all duets) posted. Out of the many of his songs that are yet to make it on the blog, and taking a ‘liberty’ for this series I have selected a song not from the decade of 1971-80 but, for this today’s post I have selected a ‘very special and lovely song’ from a 1989 movie, for this today’s special day too. This is a song from the 1989 movie ‘Santosh’, which is also making a debut on the blog today.

This song was lying dormant in my memory and got revived in 2010-2011, after many years, during a discussion with a friend.

Thereafter, when I joined this blog as a ‘lyrics contributor’ I had shared this song with Atul ji in 2012. In fact, thereafter I have shared all the songs of this movie with him. However they are yet to be posted. It is opportune that Nitin Mukesh’s birth anniversary is on 27th June’ which incidentally is a ‘special day’ for me too. 🙂

‘Santosh-1989’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. The star cast includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar and others. The story of this film was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat, assisted by Ashok Naik. Cinematography was done by Radian Kinagi. Lyrics of this movie were written by Santosh Anand and Manoj Kumar. Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film Was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

A brief about this movie from IMDB is reproduced here below;

Cold-hearted and manipulative Kamla has fallen in love with a poor man and marries him and has a child named Santosh. She soon realizes that life is not fun living in poverty, and abandons her child and husband, and returns back to her father and his wealth. She re-marries millionaire Kailashpathi, and has a child named Kundan from him. Years pass by, Kundan and Santosh have both grown up. Kundan is the owner of the mill with his mom, while Santosh is a struggling mill worker, and a union leader. A confrontation ensues between the mill and the workers, and Kamla is able to negotiate a settlement and get the workers back to work. But then, she fails to keep her promise to the workers. Santosh opposes this, and she sets her goons and Kundan against him. Santosh is abducted and held prisoner by Kamla and Kundan, and the only way he can be released is when he compromises with them.

The today’s song is a duet song sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Herma Malini respectively, while many other artists are present and can be seen in the picturization of this song. One can easily spot Sarika in this crowd of party-goers.

 

Song – Yun Lagne Lagi Aajkal Zindgani (Santosh) (1989) Singer – Nitin Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar , Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘थ’ – थोड़ी सी ज़िंदगानी राजा बीते ना जवानी ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

दिल तू भी गा, प्यार में मुस्कुरा ॰ ॰ ॰

Yes, we grew up with and learned all about the heart, and the smiles and love, listening to your songs. . . how we wish there were more. . .

– – – –

Scraped through with some difficulty for today’s episode – not many songs, and duet at that, beginning with this letter ‘थ’.

Today’s song is from a lesser known film from 1957 – ‘Laxmi Pooja’.  The film is produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Hemlata Pictures, Bombay. The list of actors of this film reads like – Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anant Kumar, Babu Raje, Praveen Pal, Indira, Manju, Shri Bhagwan, Sukumar, Rajrani, and Meenu Mumtaz etc.

The nine songs of this film are all written by Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by Chitragupt. Quite a melodious song, this offering is. The singing voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Rafi Sb.

Apparently the lady’s beau has a stronger attachment to religious pursuits, much to the dismay of the lady. And she is trying to win him over with her winsome expressions about youth being wasted. And the gentleman replies – it is not just youth, but the entire life that is getting wasted, so let us sing the praises of the Good Lord. The lady is not giving up her rightful claim and she too presses on with her efforts to snare him with the promises of love. Our man, appears to be made of sterner stuff – and absolutely does not give up by the time 3rd antaraa starts to play (somewhat breaking the rule we have always found useful in such song situations).

There is another song of a similar theme – from the 1975 film ‘Sanyaasi’ – “Chal Sanyasi Mandir Mein“. It would be interesting to compare notes and lyrics. . . 🙂

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Thodi Si Zindgani Raja Beete Na Jawaani  (Lakshmi Pooja) (1957) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt
Chorus

Lyrics

thodi si zindgani

kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re

kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

rang rangeele raja aaja

dekho saawan ke badra chhaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

nain baan hain

kyon karta abhiman re
kyon karta abhiman re
teri preet badi deewaani
preet laga prabhu se agyaani
jahaan dhokha na koi khaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re

Never a day passes when your memories don’t pay a visit. . . bringing with them wonderful songs, heard and unheard. . . a treasure that keeps on playing in the alleys of the mind. . .

– – – –

Today’s episode features a wonderful breezy duet from the 1959 film ‘Naach Ghar’. This film is a social drama produced and directed by TS Tara, for the banner of Quality Pictures, Bombay. As the name suggests, the film has a theme that is built around a stage dance group, i.e. a nautanki group. It involves characters for whom dance and music is the drive in life; it also has others who would like to usurp and manipulate these passions for their own advantage; and then there are good hearted people who want to bring happiness to all. The cast of actors is very impressive – Ashok Kumar, Shobha Khote, Gopikrishan, Helen, Kamla Lakshman, Anoop Kumar, Dhumal, Iftikhar, Maya Das, Mirza Musharraf, Jamaal, Sujata, Bismillah, and Vivek.

As I check for details online, I come across a poster that shows Helen dancing in accompaniment with Gopi Krishan. Now this should be a veritable treat to watch – Helen dancing with an acknowledged master of classical dance. One of the websites https://bombaymann2.blogspot.com/ has reproduced a brief introduction of the film from the information booklet of the film, as below,

The whole worlds a stage – a Naachgar. Its impossible to tell its whole story in a small space like this. But we are glad here to introduce a few interesting characters whose strange doings give this story its fasicnation. . Radha: A simple village maiden who is in love with Mohan and eventually effaces herself in order that Mohan should be happy. . Mohan: A simple village youth, struck first by paralysis and then by a Raja’s bullet. He is dazzled by city life and, forsaking Radha, develops a strong infatuation for Renu, a city dancer. . Mohini: A young girl, orphaned by a storm. She finds her way into a Nautanki troupe and daydreams of happiness with Gopi, its organiser. But fate having decreed otherwise, she is ultimately forced into a Naachghar – away from her sweetheart. . Gopi: A Nautanki dancer, whose art show brilliantly in partnership with Mohini. They get lost to each other in the maze of city life – and take any knocks from fate in the process. . Shekhar: An opportunist, money-crazy couttier of the Raja of a state, who was the main barrier between Radha and Mohan and Gopi and Mohini. The only man he feared was Bihari. . Bihari: Orginally a guide in shikar-forest, he became the principal aide to the Raja Saheb and his chief confidant. . Raja Saheb: A large-hearted chief of a large state, who wanted to see everyone happy and prosperous. [Source: Booklet]

 

Geet Kosh lists 10 songs for this musical – all songs are created by the team of Sahir Ludhianvi and N Datta. The count of songs is like – one Rafi Sb solo, three Lata solos, four Rafi-Lata duets, and then one duet of Rafi Sb each with Asha and Geeta. Way back in September 2012, two songs of this film were posted in quick succession. Three more songs have followed in the interim. Today we get to the sixth song of this film. All songs are quite a treasure, and I hope the remaining songs will find their place on this blog shortly.

This song is one of the Rafi-Lata duets – kind of a teasing song, where in the lady requests not to be teased in public, and the gentleman wraps it up by stating that one should be open with one’s feelings – “दुनिया का डर क्या”.

A remarkable configuration of singing lines; the first two antaraas are all by Lata, with Rafi Sb making an appearance in the third. As the song progressed, I was almost thinking whether some error had been made and this was another solo. But then Rafi Sb’s voice appeared in the third antaraa. . . 🙂

Enjoy this quick paced and breeze tête-à-tête between lovers.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ज’ – जब घड़ी बोले चार गोरी करके सिंगार ॰ ॰ ॰

॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰
तुम्हें रुकना पड़ेगा, मेरी आवाज़ सुन कर ॰ ॰ ॰

जी, आपकी आवाज़ सुन कर तो हम आज भी रुक जाते हैं।  आप खुद ही कहीं दूर हो, जहां हमारी आवाज़ शायद नहीं पहुँचती॰ ॰ ॰

Looking at the title line, I am tempted to start searching for songs which are built around the theme of the clock and  time on the clock. Yes, there are a few songs that come to mind, but then likely many of them are probably already here on the blog. Let me see.

Coming to the next letter in the alphabet for this series. The song that I have selected is a duet of Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur from the film ‘Gambler’. Not, this is not the 1971 Dev Sb starer, but an obscure and forgotten film from 1960. One song of this film is posted on the blog in July 2013. Close to five years now, that we are getting to revisit this film and add to its counter.

When I look at the detailed credits of this film, I am a bit surprised that this film is obscure and unfamiliar. The banner name is Vikas Productions from Bombay. More important, the producers of this film are Ram Kamlani and Dwarka Khosla, the latter being also the director of this film.

The star cast is quite, rather very impressive, for it includes Premnath, Shakeela, Agha, Poornima, Pran, KN Singh, Shammi, Madan Puri, Kanchanmala, Kukku, Mridula, Raja Amrohi, Jai Kumar, Meena, Ram Kamlani. Hmmm, a Premnath and Shakeela starrer in the late 1950s. . . should have been a better known film.

Anyway, seven songs listed. All songs from the pen of Prem Dhawan and music by Chitragupt, assisted by Dilip Dholakia. The song itself has a peculiar signature – a long pause of silence in the middle of the last word in last lines of the mukhda and the antaraas. I can’t recall a similar tune design for a song in Hindi films.

The song is a ‘nok-jhonk’ song – the gentleman says something to offend the lady to start with, she complains about it, he retracts and apologizes, and then all is well once again. And the planned tryst at 4 O’Clock is very much on. The pause becomes so noticeable, as the rest of song is quite fast paced. As I said, a peculiar tune design experimented by Chitragupt. A fun song, I am sure you will enjoy.

Song – Jab Ghadi Bole Chaar Gori Kar Ke Singaar  (Gambler) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt
Mohammed Rafi + Suman Kalyanpur

Lyrics

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘छ’ – छैल छबीला रंग रंगीला कौन नगर से आया ॰ ॰ ॰

मैं गाउँ तुम सो जाओ ॰ ॰ ॰

Your soothing voice is enough to bring a gentle peace to any restless mind. Yes, you would sing and calmness would descend, settling the perturbations of the mind. There was this promise of some divine massage that would heal the disturbances. Alas, just the recordings remain. . . a poor semblance of the real.

‘Madan Manjari’ from 1961 is promising treasure of wonderful music that came from the mind of Sardar Malik. Three gems of this film are already showcased here on our blog. Today, I bring on this fourth treasure, as the next episode in this series of duets of Rafi Sb.

This is a stunt film directed by Jasubhai Trivedi for the banner of Mukund Pictures of Bombay. All eight songs of this film are written by Hasrat Jaipuri, and are tuned to music by Sardar Malik. The cast of actors is listed as Nalini Chonkar, Manhar Desai, Kammo, Sundar, BM Vyas, Naseem, Tuntun, Shekhar Purohit, Meena, Amarjeet, Ajeet, Anil Kumar, CL Singh, Anwari, Premi, BR Ramchandran, Premlata, Champaklala, and Niranjan Sharma etc.

The voice accompanying Rafi Sb is Kamal Barot. Quite a coincidence that the same pair of voices is also present in the previous song posted (part of the Missing 1960s series). The presentation of this song is very fast paced, and the somewhat less than perfect quality of the sound recording of this presentation, makes it sound somewhat higher pitched than expected.

But a lovely song nonetheless. Enjoy.

Song – Chhail Chhabeela Rang Rangeela Kaun Nagar Se Aaya (Madan Manjari) (1961) Singer – Kamal Barot, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Sardar Malik

Lyrics

तेरे लिए मैं लाया
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह
छैल छबीला रंग रंगीला
कौन नगर से आया
हाए बाँकी हसीना
दिल का नगीना
तेरे लिए मैं लाया
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह॰॰आह

दिल के सौदागर लाखों देखे
प्यार है हीरा जाने ना कोई
प्यार है हीरा जाने ना कोई
प्यार की कीमत हमसे पूछो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ
सारी उमरिया प्यार में खोई
सारी उमरिया प्यार में खोई
ओ मेरे जाना
ले नज़राना
प्यार का मोती लाया
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह
छैल छबीला रंग रंगीला
कौन नगर से आया
होय बाँकी हसीना
दिल का नगीना
तेरे लिए मैं लाया
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह॰॰आह

हाए बड़ी चालाक है दुनिया
मुंह पे शबनम दिल में शोला
मुंह पे शबनम दिल में शोला
मेरी मोहब्बत धोखा ना समझो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ
आऊँगा ले कर प्यार का डोला
आऊँगा ले कर प्यार का डोला
लेके चलूँगा
प्रेम नगरिया
तू ही मेरे मन भाया
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र झूठ है अल्लाह
अर्र र्र र्र र्र सच है वल्लाह॰॰आह
