Two signature melodies, one sweet voice,

Do Naina, Aur Ek Kahaani

Do Panchhi, Do Tinke, Kaho Le Ke Chale Hain Kahaan

And the voice – Aarti Mukherjee.

Celebrating Aarti ji’s birthday today – she turns 76 today. Greetings and best wishes to her for good health, and many more such celebrations to follow.

Aarti ji was born in Calcutta, in 1943. Along with her formal school education, her grooming in classical music also continued side by side, at the feet of teachers like Shri Chinmoy Lahiri, Shri Susheel Bannerjee and Ustad Mohammed Sageeruddin. It was a childhood dream for her to be a famous singer, and be counted in the same list as Lata Mangeshkar.

In her teen years – she was just 12 or 13, in 1955 she appeared in the ‘All India Music Talent Contest’ in Calcutta. Then couple of years down the road, in 1957, she participated in the Metro-Murphy Talent Search Contest held in Bombay. The panel of judges were the esteemed cream of music directors from Hindi cinema – Anil Biswas, Naushad, Vasant Desai and C Ramchandra. She was judged to be the winner in the female singer category. This recognition opened doors for her as a playback singer in the world of cinema. She was just fourteen years old.

Vasant Desai gave her the debut break when he invited her to sing for the 1958 film ‘Do Phool’. It is a chirpy lilting children’s song that she rendered so effectively – “Matak Matak Naachoon Re”. Oportunities started to come her way. She sang a duet with Lata ji, for the film ‘Sahaara’, also 1950 – “Atkan Matkan Dahi Chatokan”. Then on to ‘Schoolmaster’ in 1959, and ‘Angulimaal’, ‘Apna Ghar’ in 1960. The song “Dheere Dheera Dhal Re Chanda” is one of her earliest popular melodies.

In 1962, she got her first break in Bangla films, with the film ‘Kanya’. Her versatility and her sweet voice helped her to make a place for herself in the Bangla cinema, coming quickly to the level of popularity of Sandhya Mukherjee, who was the lead playback singer in that era. She has given playback to almost all the stalwart leading ladies of Bangla cinema of that time – Aparna Sen, Sharmila Tagore, Madhabi Mukherji, Debashri Roy, and Tanuja etc.  Her popularity was at its peak in 1970s.

Meanwhile, she continued to sing in Hindi films, such sweet renditions like – “Mat Jaiyo Piya Pardes Sajaniya Paiyaan Pade Re” (‘Vidyapati’, 1964), “Saara Mora Kajra Chhudaaya Tu Ne” (‘Do Dil’, 1965), “Kirnon Ki Dori Chaand Ka Palna” (‘Maya Sundari’, 1967), “Jaago Anjaani Rajdulaari” (‘Ek Surat Do Dil’. 1968), and more.

In 1975 came the popular and successful ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ – in which Ravindra Jain gave us such beautiful melodies – “Shyam Teri Bansi. . .”, “Kar Gaya Kaanha Milan Ka Waada” and “Main Wahi, Darpan Wahi”.

Aarti ji has won the Filmfare award for the best female playback singer in 1983 for the song of ‘Maasoom’ – “Do Naina. . .”. She has also won the Bengal Film Journalists Award for best playback singer in 1967, for film ‘Golpo Hoelo Satyi’ and 1976, for ‘Chhutir Phande’. For her vocal performance in ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975), she was honored with the Mian Tansen Award.

Today, I present a very interesting and a very pleasing melody from the 1959 film ‘Schoolmaster’. The film is a Hindi remake of the 1958 hit Kannada film, of the same name. The film is produced and directed by BR Panthulu, under the banner of Padmini Pictures. The star cast for this film is listed as BR Panthalu, Radha Kishan, Ulhas, MV Rajamma, Shakeela, B Saroja Devi, Kamini Kadam, Lalita Pawar, Achla Sachdev, Karan Diwan, David, Jawahar Kaul, Raja Gosavi, Puranik, Vishwa Mehra, Shivaji Ganeshan, Baby Laxmi, Kusumlata, Kumuda, Shashikala, Venkatesh, Gopi Nath, Ganesh, Vijay, Pramod, and Ramesh. The story of the film is a typical family drama of a joint family – a retired schoolmaster with three sons, and he ends up losing his house and even a respectful accommodation with his children. This theme has been replayed in many films, earlier and later.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. All the song have been written by Kavi Pradeep. The music is by Vasant Desai. Vasant Desai has used as many 10 playback singers in this film – Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Mahendra Kapoor, Pradeep, Lalita, Indu and Sarla. And then there is this one solo song in the voice of Aarti Mukherjee.

A lovely melody, and a very lovely rendition. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ek Do Teen, Gin Bhai Gin  (School Master) (1959) Singer – Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics – Kavi Pradeep, MD – Vasant Desai

Blog Day : 4017 Post No. : 15124

The years roll by – time stops for no one.

And, just like that, it is now 7 years since that day in 2012.

I still remember that day very well – I first got the news on Facebook.

One of my friends had posted “vaada tera vaada”, saying “RIP Rajesh Khanna”.

It shook me – I immediately checked Twitter for validation. (Now Twitter is known to post fake death news from time to time. Not so long ago, they had posted news of Mumtaz’s death – thankfully, fake.) But I wanted a second source.

Sadly, and I realized this very soon with a sinking feeling, the news on 18th July 2012 was not fake. Rajesh Khanna (or Kaka, as he was more affectionately known) HAD passed away. For the past year, he had been suffering from cancer – and the cancer had finally won.

I felt miserable that day. Not that I didn’t know he was suffering from cancer, but I never expected him to go when he did.

That day my Facebook status was
Kya samjhega ye aalam koi
Badaa bhaari hai dil ye mera
Ki le gaye ho saath safar pe tumhaare
Tukda jo kabhi tha dil ye mera

Rubbish poetry, I know – but hey, it did reflect my mood.

Those were the times when I’d seek refuge in my blog. I’d just dump my thoughts onto my blog, for my own sake. It was my way of releasing my feelings, not suppressing them within.

That day too I went to my blog, and wrote a piece for Rajesh Khanna. A personal piece – well, about as personal a piece that one can write about someone he has never met, someone whose many character flaws one acknowledges, and yet someone who was a big part of one’s childhood.

I’ve written about Kaka several times here, and I don’t want to bore readers by repeating stuff.

I’ll just say a few things, and then move on to the song.

Firstly, most times when I discuss Kaka with others (I don’t do much of this anymore), I get the following reactions.
Firstly, a criticism of his acting – mostly his set mannerisms, and his hamming.
Secondly, criticism about him as a person.

I’ve noticed that people who dislike Kaka, tend to dislike him rather intensely. 🙂 On one, or both, of the above counts.

And, I must admit, they would not be wrong.

The first point first.

Without doubt, Kaka’s acting lost its freshness after a few years – and was a big reason for his decline. His superstar success lasted only a few years. During this period, he acted in a whole lot of films. Both he, and his producers, wanted to cash in on his name. Just his name used to be enough to sell a film. Sure, the films were all successful – Kaka holds the record for maximum number of consecutive hits.

But over-exposure comes with its risks. Especially when you’re boxed into a method of acting, expected to conform to set mannerisms, and a set dialogue delivery style. Yes, they made you successful, but style wears out after a while. Kaka’s mannerisms did become an issue. That the storylines also were beginning to get thin, did not help.

Much later in his career, we got to see a different Rajesh Khanna. Not THE superstar anymore, he could afford to act differently, in different roles. Let’s not forget he got his break in films by winning an acting contest, so he couldn’t have been that bad an actor. 🙂

Now, to the second point.

Again, I have to agree. It’s no secret that Kaka allowed success to get to his head. His unprofessional, and possibly even mean, behaviour with colleagues and others, left a lot of people bitter. No doubt many would have been happy to see him go down. A point made even more stark when compared with the upcoming star, Amitabh Bachchan, who was the model professional actor, punctual and polite.

I will not defend Kaka on this front at all. Much later in life, he did realize this himself.

All I will say is, every one of us has failings. Maybe if Kaka’s success had been more gradual, he’d have been a different person. Failure teaches us much more than success – Amitabh had a string of failures before becoming a superstar.

One person’s life is often a lesson for another. Just as people can tell aspiring youngsters “Look at Amitabh – how he struggled early in his career, but his perseverance and professionalism made him a superstar”, they can also say “Look at Rajesh Khanna – how he let success get to his head at a young age, and destroyed his career and relationships”.

One can learn from both.

To me, while I accept these criticisms, I will always remember, and thank, Rajesh Khanna for giving me many wonderful memories in my childhood.

That tilt of the head, that smile, that kurta, that dialogue delivery – today people might mock all of this, but in those days, these are what millions swooned over. That “Pushpa, I hate tears” line is still one of the best-known lines in Hindi cinema.

His films of that era made me feel good when I saw them in the early 70s. Later, when I saw them again, I’d still smile at “rona kabhi nahin rona”, “yahaan wahaan saare”, “nainon mein nindiya hai”, “ye shaam mastaani” and a whole lot of other songs. They’d bring back memories of my childhood.

Like one of my best friends (in class I) would always sing “pyaar deewana hota hai” from Kati Patang. It was his favourite song. I liked it a lot too, but I’d counter him with “ye shaam mastaani”. I know it sounds silly, but these are not just songs for me – they have memories attached to them. Like the incident attached to “o mere dil ke chain” – I’ve discussed the incident here earlier.

And that’s the thing. Each person’s memories are different, and therefore connect with someone is different. And while I acknowledge all Kaka’s failings, I also want to give him back a little bit of that love that I got from watching his films during my childhood.

That’s also the reason for this post. I haven’t written for a while now, but Avinashji requested me to write a post for this occasion. I was hesitant, since I sincerely believe I’ve lost my writing ability. I even told Avinashji “I can’t write anything longer than a tweet now” :-). But he was kind enough to share with me a whole lot of Kaka songs not posted yet, so I could easily pick one.

Now to the song.

Initially I thought of posting a sad song, considering it is on Kaka’s death anniversary. But then I thought again.

What I’d like to remember most of Kaka is the joy I got from watching his films, from before his decline. I think, from up there, he’d also probably like most people to remember him for those films.

So today’s song is from one of his early films – Bandhan (1969). I remember seeing this film long ago, though I don’t remember the story now.

By the way, it is exactly 50 years since this film was released. 1969 was a milestone year for Kaka – this was the year he became a superstar with Aradhana. And Do Raaste was a huge hit too.

The song “jaana hai to jao” shows early glimpses of the superstar-to-be. One can see some of those mannerisms that would become his hallmark in the coming years. And it is always fun to see Kaka and Mumtaz together, even if this was a less-known film than their more famous films to come.

The song is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Not surprising that Mahendra Kapoor was used, considering music is by Kalyanji-Anandji. The MK-KA combo had a huge hit with Upkar (1967), so KA were happy to use MK again. And at that time, Rajesh Khanna was “just another hero”. Kishore Kumar had not yet become his voice. In fact, in this film, even Mukesh sings a happy song for Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

I hope you like the song.

Thanks for the memories, Kaka.

Whatever the world might say about you, remember, when it comes to romance in film,

“tere hi to sar pe mohabbat ka taaj hai”.

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

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

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

pyaar jo toota
saath jo chhoota

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

chaand na chamkega kabhi

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

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

ramaiya vasta vaiya
maine dil tujhko diya

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blog Day : 4008 Post No. : 15114

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

nai nai hain manzilen
naye naye hain raaste
chale na jaana chhod ke

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 38
——————————————————————————————

Today’s movie falling under ‘ten-year challenge’ is ‘Banarasi Babu-1973’.

First song from this movie, the title song was represented on the blog ten years ago on this day (8 july 2009).

The other movies represented on the blog on this day are;

Movie title-Year Remarks
Muqaddar Ka Sikandar-1978 All Songs covered
Banarasi Babu-1973 03 of 07 songs posted
Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati-1969 05 songs covered
Aashiq-1962 All Songs covered
Bhaabhi Ki Choodiyaan-1961 All Songs covered
Mirza Sahiban-1947 All Songs covered

‘Banarasi Babu-1973’ was directed by Shankar Mukherjee for ‘Alankar Chitra’, Bombay’. Shankar Mukherjee was also the producer of this movie.

It had Dev Anand, Rakhi, Yogita Bali, Jeevan, Veena, Manorama, I.S.Johar, Bhagwan, Maruti, Rashid Khan, Rajan Haksar, Shivraj, Polson, S.N.Tripathi, Raj Rani, Brahm Bharadwaj, Kavi Babu, Dhanna, Bhushan Tiwari, Uttam Raj, Jerry, Raj Ratan Malhotra, Qamar Ali, Pradeep Dasgupta, Bhola, Nazeer Kashmiri, Jamini Babu, Neela Rai, Pahalwan, C.K.Dubey, and Miss Kamal Rai. Faryal makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by K.A. Narayan. Dialogues for this movie were written by Rakesh Pant. The editing of this movie was done by Babu Lavande.

This movie had total seven songs (including one multiple version song). All of its songs were written by Rajinder Krishan, and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.
Lata Mangeshkar had sung three solo songs, Kishore Kumar had two solo and Asha Bhonsle had one solo songs in this movie. The movie had one duet song sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

I remember to have watched this movie during my childhood but I have forgotten most of it by now except its songs. I liked Bure bhi ham bhale bhi ham…ham hain Banarasi Babu very much then, perhaps because of its catchy tune. I had even memorized this song then and I remember it even today. That also happened to be the most popular song from this movie which finished at thirtieth number in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala list’ of 1973.

I also recall that other songs from this movie were also nice and they were frequently heard on radio or loud speakers. Like, ‘mere peecche ek ladki’ (multiple version song, posted on 03.12.2017), ‘aap yahaan se jaane ka kya loge’, ‘tauba tauba sharaab badnaam ho gayi’, ‘qamar meri lattoo’, and the today’s song ‘koi koi raat aisi hoti hai’.

I was under the impression that these songs must have been covered earlier so it came as a surprise to me when I found that they are yet to be posted on the blog.

For today’s post I have selected the song ‘koi koi raat aisi hoti hai’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar, which a nice hummable song. It is a regular on radio even today.
This song is lip synced by Rakhi on screen and we can see Dev Anand also present there, for whom Rakhi is singing the song but she is not aware that this Dev Anand is not the same that she is looking for. 🙂

Let us now enjoy this song …

Lyrics

Koi koi raat aisi hoti hai ae ae

Koi koi raat aisi hoti hai ae ae
Jismein koi baat aisi hoti hai

Aur aane waale aa ke bhi naa aaye

tum samay ki ret par chhodte chalo nishaan
dekhti tumhen zameen
dekhta hai aasmaan

These uplifiting lines are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak. The poetry composed sometimes in the early 1950s, was presented as a song in the 1953 film ‘Naya Raasta’. Saraswati Kumar Deepak is a song writer who has been confined to mythological and religious fare for most of his career. Active in the Hindi cinema since 1943, his songs can be heard in films all the way to the end of 1970s.

Remembering Saraswati Kumar Deepak today (8th July) on the anniversary of his passing away. And incidentally, yesterday (7th July) was his birth anniversary also.

He was born on 7th July 1918, at Navsthala Hasanpur in district Bulanshehar in Uttar Pradesh. His original name was Ram Gopal Sharma. Not much information is available about his early years. His education was in Hindi and Sanskrit. He did his BA from Meerut College. As a young man, he had begun writing poetry and prose.

In early forties he came to Bombay, and in 1942 he joined the production house of Fazli Brothers. His first assignment was as the writer of advertisements and promotional material in Hindi, for the films produced by Fazli Brothers. His first song appeared in the film ‘Zabaan’ of 1943 – “Dheere Se Kadam Badhaata Chal, Bigdi Taqdeer Banaata Chal”, which was composed by C Ramchandra and sung by Ishwarlal and Kaushalya. His next song – “Soti Hun Ab Chanda Mujhe Jagaa Dena”, appeared 1944, in the film ‘Badi Baat’. The song was rendered by Amirbai under the direction of Feroze Nizami. This song became very popular in its time, and the name of its writer started getting known somewhat in the industry.

In 1945, his songs appeared in ‘Piya Milan’ and ’Swarn Bhoomi’. However, 1946 became a defining year for him. Four films were released that carried songs written by him – ‘Bhakt Prahlad’, ‘Dev Kanya’, ‘Maansarovar’ and ‘Uttra Abhimanyu’. As the names of these films suggest, yes, they had an effect to have Saraswati Kumar typecast as a writer for religious and mythological films. This categorization he was never able to shake off for the rest of his career.

That is not to say that he did not write other type of songs for other genres of films. The songs “Kahin Ka Deepak Kahin Ki Baati” (‘Aag’, 1948), “Raat Gayi Phir Din Aata Hai” (‘Boot Polish’, 1953, and “Nigaahon Se Dil Mein Chale Aayiega” (‘Hameer Hath’, 1964) are a sampler that represents that wide portfolio of genres he could handle. He has written close to 350 songs for about 100 Hindi films. Besides that, he translated and dubbed the songs and the dialogues for about 25 regional language films.

Saraswati Kumar was not just a song writer. He was also a screenplay writer, a dubbing specialist and a renowned author of literature for children. Books like ‘Haathi Ghoda Paalki’ and ‘Jai Janani, Jai Bharati’ became quite popular and famous. He used to write a lot for All India Radio – plays, songs, sponsored programs etc. for two years, he anchored the program ‘Apni Kahaani, Apni Zubaani’ – sponsored by Bank of Baroda. And above all, as a journalist, he continuously contributed stories and articles for newspapers and magazines.

He passed away in 1986, just after completing his 68 year.

The film ‘Bansari Bala’ is produced by Moghabhai Deasi under the banner of Desai Productions, Bombay, and is directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The cast of actors listed for this film is Chitra, Daljeet, Maruti, Niranjan Sharma, Krishna Kumari, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Mishra, Kamal, Meenu Mumtaz, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Susheel Kumar, Nadir Mota, Razia, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Jugnu, Shashimala, Savitri, Jagdish Kamal, Heera Sawant, Sheela Waaz, Suresh Nigam, Master Rajesh, and Al Nasir.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Six songs are written by Pandit Faani and the remaining three are by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. Music direction is by Kamal Mitra. All the three songs which are written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak have been sung by Sudha Malhotra. One of these three is already showcased here on our blog – “Main To Chanda Ki Nagri Se Aayi Re”.

 Today’s lilting song is in the sweet singing voice is of Sudha Malhotra. Words are from the pen of Saraswati Kumar Deepak, and the signature melody is by Chitragupt. On screen, the song is performed by Chitra, who tells about her heart after someone came to her dreams and cast a captivating spell on her. The song is filmed in a garden. And we can see the subject of her aspirations (Daljeet) also present there, although she is not aware as she continues with the song.

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

Listen and enjoy.

Blog Day :

4005 Post No. : 15109 Movie Count :

4150

For today’s post, I have chosen a movie who’s two namesakes are already there on the blog and thanks to their popularity they have even been yippeed already. However, this 2002 release and another namesake are perhaps waiting for me to open their account on the blog.

This film like many of the movies (phenomena particularly seen in 1930s) was inspired by a play. The director Vipul Amrutlal Shah adapted this movie from his own Gujarati play Andhalo Pato (Blindman’s Bluff). He has done these kind of adaptations later as well. I feel that its certainly a good idea to adapt movies from plays, novels, short stories etc as these often have wonderful ieas in them around which screenplays can be built. A good script will always give strength to a movie. Music no doubt is important to a movie but it can only do so much alone. I hope our filmmakers today will focus more on continuing this trend of re-using good stories rather than re-using good songs to make something else out of them!

The film tells the story of Vijay Singh Rajput (Bachchan) a hard-working but temperamental man who has spent all his life working for one bank and even achieving them international recognition. When Vijay loses his mind and goes on a violent rampage beating up another employee, he is subsequently fired. He decides to take vengeance by organising a full on heist and having the same bank robbed by three blind men as no one will suspect them. The film was quite appreciated when it released.
The detailed plot was as follows:-

Obsessive and temperamental bank manager Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) loses his job for badly beating up a bank clerk who tried to embezzle money. Angered at losing his job he plots revenge on the bank by intending to stage a heist. He employs three blind men – Vishwas (Akshay Kumar), a blind person who has the power of the sixth sense, Elias (Paresh Rawal) and Arjun (Arjun Rampal) — when, after passing by school for the blind, he understands that blind people can be trained to do things like sighted people. He blackmails and enlists the help of Neha (Sushmita Sen) who is a teacher at the school to train the trio to do the seemingly impossible heist. He chose blind people because they, as thieves, would never be suspected as noone would believe blind people can rob a bank.

The bank robbery is successful, with the jewels safely captured by the three. However, in the process of robbing the bank, Elias’s face is exposed, captured in footage and prompting citywide posters with his face. Meanwhile, Mr. Rajput anxiously tries to extort information from Vishwas and Arjun regarding the jewels and their location. Unable to answer, as they did not collect the items, they try to defer the answer by changing subjects. Ultimately, it is revealed that Elias is the one with complete knowledge of the box’s belongings. Meanwhile, tensions rise between Rajput and Neha; the latter resists the abusive nature of Rajput and his obnoxious harassing of Vishwas and Arjun. Arjun confesses his love to Neha, who reveals that she is associated in the plot only for the well-being of her younger brother, Rahul, who has been kidnapped by Rajput.

In a furious attempt, the police try to locate Elias. Elias lands up at Rajput’s place after getting drunk. Rajput tries several ways to force Elias into revealing the location of the box. Unable to generate an answer, he slams Elias, who falls on the ground and injures his eyes, causing bleeding. Even in this scenario, Rajput tries to get the information, but Vishwas and Arjun resist and claim that they will reveal the location if Elias is treated by paramedics. Rajput sends them to get Dr. Siddiqui. Vishwas senses that Elias is in danger and Arjun and Vishwas double back to the training center to save him. Rajput starts to harass Elias by tickling him to force him to reveal the answer.

In the action, Elias falls off the balcony and dies. Unable to bear the shock of the death, Neha pulls a gun on Rajput and threatens to reveal everything to the police if he does not leave her and the other two alone. Rajput notifies Neha that all these acts were done under her training, and he is spotless. Unable to bear this fact, Neha shoots herself, just as Vishwas and Arjun return after hearing loud screams.

Both men gang up on Rajput and try to attack him. Once Rajput realises that the men are ignorant about the jewels, he starts shooting them. The police arrive, and confusion ensues. Vishwas and Arjun come out and claim that Rajput is abusing them while he claims that there is a big conspiracy involving the two men, Neha and Elias. Unable to believe that blind men can ransack a bank and amidst Rajput’s impassioned defence, the police start getting suspicious. In the heat of defending himself, Rajput reveals that he had sent over Elias, thus confessing his crime.
In the end, Rajput has been locked away. Vishwas and Arjun decide to take care of Rahul and ultimately find the jewels – they were hidden in Elias’ musical instrument.

This would appear as the typical Hindi film end where the evil man ends up in jail. However, old timers may be remembering the curious case of Bandini having two endings being shot. As told in Bioscope ki Baaten on Vividh Bharti’s pitara programme long back Bimalda could not decide what end to give the movie. One option was to send Nutan’s character to hear new beau played by Dharmendra and the other was for her to go to her old love Ashok Kumar. As per announcer Kamal Sharma who hosted it as per my memory, Bimalda shot both the endings and showed it to a selected audience (perhaps the distributors??) who decided that the ending where She goes to side of the ailing Ashok Kumar would be more apt.

However in this movie’s case, the film makers had another ending in mind which was released in the overseas version! In the overseas viewers version, Rajput bribes the cop (Aditya Pancholi) and is set free, in return to get him his share and gets his manager Bhandari (Ajit Vachani) arrested. Vishwas and Arjun are sitting in a train (waiting for it to depart) and Rajput is standing on the platform with a smile on his face. He then warns them that “A dangerous game is about to begin”, after which Vishwas and Arjun both draw their guns, and the film ends.

Perhaps the film makers felt that overseas audience would better accept the corrupt angle while also leaving room for a sequel which never happened. Obviously, the alternate ending overseas version was longer in length too.

Interestingly, when the movie released, the pirated movies would often come via the Dubai route and in India, people going to cinemas and watching it at home were seeing the different endings! The movie was a big hit. I especially loved the way Sushmita Sen matched up to Amitabh Bachchan during her very effective role. Its sad that we have got to see so less of her in films. Bollywood, She hasn’t been seen since Chingaari (2006). Are you listening??

Before, I come to the chosen song itself, I must mention a very curious case of P-stats for the song. One man who “appears” as if He is yet to make his debut on the blog as far as one can see has not yet made his debut on the blog is making his debut with this song post. What’s interesting is that He’s making his debut on the blog as a singer, a composer as well as what he’s most known as – a Lyricist! Another interesting thing is that his co-composers in the song are a well known composer duo as well as a talented, now sadly deceased, solo composer. So this song for which he has written the lyrics has four composers! That’s quite rare must say!! I was surprised when I first discovered this and had to get hold of the “record” i.e. the CD to confirm the same! This gentleman has not only been a singer, composer and lyricist but also contributed to films as a dialogue writer as well as an actor!
You can see the CD for the credits here on Amazon.

I hope I have made you curious about the identity of the artist! You’ve probably heard some songs of his. He’s known for reviving Bambaiyya style songs in films like Ghulam (1998) and Satya (1998). For many years he was in demand for his Bambaiyya lyrics! His name is of course Nitin Raikwar.

How he came to write probably his biggest hit which kick started his lyricist career is a quite interesting incident. The year was 1996. Actor and filmmaker Neeraj Vora recommended that he go and meet ‘Mr Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan. Aamir was shooting on the sets of Ghulam at Sanpada in Navi Mumbai. He needed someone to write some funny shayaris for a character in his next film Sarfarosh. When Nitin reached there he found that due to some technical slag the whole unit was on standby while it was being rectified. Seeing Aamir free, Nitin went up to him and requested him to give a listen to one of the songs he had written. Aamir heard it and immediately called the director Vikram Bhatt. They both found the song unusual but nice. That song which got included in the movie was ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ which became a super duper hit (It was sung by Aamir himself with Alka Yagnik. Its not yet on the blog and I’m reserving it for a future post by me. Me. Me. Peevsie’s mom and other’s please note 😀 ). This song will probably feature in any playlist of Bambaiyya Hindi songs.

He was to follow it up with many hits. One of these is already on our blog. That is the famous Apun Bola Tu Meri Laila from Josh (2000) which has already had a post by Peevsie’s mom nearly 6 years back on 20th August here:-

In the tagging it has got miscredited to Sameer (who also wrote for the movie) and thus it became his “secret debut” on the blog (the writeup does mention him in one place!). The correctness of the credit can be easily seen on the CD here

Some of his other popular songs include Excuse Me Kya Re (from Style 2001) and Khallas from RGV’s Company (2002). He penned for many more movies being sought out for the Bambaiyya flavour. He was also called for children’s movies like Chhota Chetan (1998) and Jajantaram Mamantaram (2003).

He talked about all this in a 2017 interview with Mid Day.
To quote from it:-

Writing in tapori language was a skill that Raikwar developed after he moved to Mumbai from Pune in 1987. By then, he had already tried his hand at singing in orchestras, something his father wanted him to do since he was a successful show organiser. “But I didn’t see myself singing in orchestras all my life. I was aware of the risk and struggle involved in Bollywood, but I was adamant to make it,” he says. With little money to spend, Raikwar’s story reads like that of so many others who move to Mumbai from smaller towns to try their luck. “When a man is struggling, he spends time with people who are like him. So I would sit at chai tapris and talk to rickshawallas, drivers and daily wage labourers. Because I’m talkative and an extrovert by nature, I could strike up a conversation with just about anyone. That’s how I picked up the slang,” he says. Even when he didn’t have projects, Raikwar would write and seek feedback from his friends, some of whom were already working in the film industry as supporting actors. And it’s through their assistance that he finally met Anil Kapoor on the sets of Ladla. “I consider that the turning point in my life. Anil Kapoor felt I had potential and introduced me to directors and filmmakers,” he says. Raikwar’s first song was Teri Tirchi Nazar Main Hai Jaadoo for Anil Kapoor-starrer Loafer in 1996. But it was Aati Kya Khandala that earned him fame like no other. In fact, it helped him bag a Shah Rukh Khan film soon after. “I remember writing Apun Bola in 15 minutes after I heard the script. I wanted it to reflect Goan culture so I included words like kokum curry. You’ll also find words like ‘hoinga’ and ‘karenga’, just the way a Catholic aunty would say them,” he says.

In 2014, Raikwar had to put all work on the backburner for two years due to an illness. It began with bouts of headache, and he was later diagnosed with subdural hematoma of the brain. “The clots had to be removed through surgery. For a long time, I couldn’t work because of the illness. I’m fine now, and hope to get back to what I do best,” he says.

“I think what worked for me at that point was the novelty factor. People dig variety. For instance, we may love our vada pav, but when the burger made an entry in early 2000, we started queuing up for it. It’s the same with songs,” he says. These days, Raikwar is working on his debut album for which he has collaborated with Shrikant Ahire, one of Maharashtra’s foremost shadow dancers. He plans to release a single from it next month. The song is called Khan Sahab Apne Ladke Ko Sambhal. “I thought I’d write in a manner that people identify with. I can’t write in a flowery and larger-than-life way. It’s not me.”

For some reason, the album and song are yet to release though the 2017 interview suggested it would happen soon. No other work from him has come too as far as I can see.

Coming to the song post, It’s a very danceable song composed by our composer ‘quartet’ of Nitin Raikwar, Aadesh Shrivastav and Jatin-Lalit. Joining Nitin Raikwar sing in the movie are Aadesh Shrivastav himself and Actor/Singer Arun Bakshi who you all stalwarts probably already know about from his multiple movies. Written in his usual tapori style, the song for me at its core is quite a philosophical song asking one to not worry about our troubles and that we will one day have everything we want. The song has a nice uplifting mood to it that I love to listen when feeling a bit down sometimes. The feelings of the song somehow remind me of Manna Dey’s rendition of ‘Door Tera Gaon Ho, Thake Tere Paaon Hon Chalta Chal’ from movie Fashionable Wife (1959) which too I am fond of.

Here is the song for you all Bambaiyya Hindi lovers:-

Its picturised on Akshay Kumar, Arjun and Paresh Rawal. The song had become quite an anthem in those days just like today we have Apna Time Aayega but probably in a larger way. A view of the youtube comments of the song will prove that.

Karan Arora says, “My dad is a GM in maruti showroom now……. But 15 years ago…we had a financial crisis…He had to work as a driver under an advocate….we use to live on rent in one room of a govt. Apartment. I was 5 years old At that time.. Jab bhi main dukhi hota tha….he always use to say ” fatela jeb sil jayega…. Jo chahega mil jayega….. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote…. ” to encourage me… But us time esa lagta tha ki future hi nahi hai hamaara…but here we are… Living happily now… So I’m just sharing my story with you guys to encourage everyone who’s struggling in life right now….. Abhi main tum log ko kehta hoon “fatela jeb sil jayega… Jo chahega mil jayega…. Tere bhi din ayenge chhote”……bs rukne ka nahi…. Chalte raho…. 💙💙💙”

Saurabh Mahambrey says, “If three blind guys can sing about a better tomorrow and successful rob a bank …. You can do anything 😂😂😂”

Enceladus says, “2019 anyone 😂 this song is for eternal struggle”

Shubh Patil says, “Best way to get rid of anxiety attacks.. 2019 still here😁😁”

CRT says, “Whenever I feel down, I remember this song. And half of my tension goes away 😃”

Ansh Patil says, “Iconic song.. Amazing movie.. Specially Paresh Rawal rocks”

Shubham Hatekar says, “This song encourages me more than “Apna Time ayega”. Anyone feels same.”

I certainly feel the same. Stay motivated and keep going. You are stronger than the sum of all your troubles. Never forget that.

Missing Films of 1960s – 113
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Famous last words, and all the associated idiomatic paraphernalia that goes along – well, it has happened with me too. 🙂 On Monday last (1st July), while posting the 112th episode of this series, I had, with much fanfare announced that no more films of 1960s are traceable at present. And the very same day, our dear Sadanand ji pointed me towards a link on YT – a song uploaded by Shri Girdhari Lal ji (of Jodhpur), from the film ‘Rang Raliyaan’ of 1962. This film is on the list of 79 films that I posted in that article – list of films that are still to be traced.

And so in my defense I want to state that Girdhari Lal ji is one of the earliest sources that I consulted, while searching for the missing films and songs. That must have been about 3 to 4 years ago, when I had started working on this series. At that point in time, he had told me that, he had not yet started working on the films from 1960s, so he could not say with certainty. Later, as I was getting to close this series, I should have checked with him again, but missed doing that. And this upload has been online for about 11 months now. 🙂

In my article I have written at one place,

The last column gives the no. of films which are not yet available, and I mean, not available from any source, period. As far as my search of the past almost four years reveals, songs of these films are not available anywhere in public domain. I could be wrong, and oh boy, I will be the happiest person to be told that I am wrong 🙂 .

Yes, I am happy to get hold of songs from a very rare and obscure film, and also to bring this film on board. And I heartfully thank Sadanand ji for bringing this song and upload to my notice. Further, I am so glad that providence made me close that article with the lines,

I suspend further publications in this series. I say suspend, because I want to leave the door open for the possibility that any of the remaining 79 films of this decade, may turn up, only God knows where and when.

Well, one of the films did turn up right away. 🙂

Not only has Girdhari Lal ji uploaded these songs online, he also sent me many more details about the film itself, which I am presenting here.

The film is produced by Achchhe Saheb (name given in Geet Kosh). It is directed by Aziz Kashmiri, who has also written the songs in this film. The cast of actors of this film includes Meena, Manhar Desai, Manju, Randheer, Dalpat and Om Prakash.

The film has seven songs, one of which is a long two part song. All songs are written by Aziz Kashmiri. Three music directors have contributed to the film – Vinod, Lachhiram and S Bannerji.  This particular song is composed by Lachhiram. The singing voice is that of Mubarak Begum.

This song is vintage Mubarak Begum. As I listened to this song multiple times, the rendition and the nuances kept taking my mind back to her other hit songs like “Tumhaara Dil Mere Dil Ke Muqaabil Ho Nahin Sakta. . . Bemuravvat Bewafaa. . .”, “Aankhon Aankhon Mein Har Ek Raat Guzar Jaati Hai”, and “Mere Aansuon Pe Na Muskura”. A sad song of a broken heart, I simply do not seem to be able to get enough of listening to it. A very rare and a very obscure addition to our blog – a song whose existence we have not been aware of all these years.

And yes, this find also gives hope and encouragement that more of the missing films and songs may be recovered in time.
Aameen.

kismet ne jinhen nashaad kiya
kyon hum ne mohabbat. . .

ae baad e saba tu jaa ke zara

क्या भले दिन थे

क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
क्यों दिल का सुकूँ बर्बाद किया
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये

क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
क्यों खाना ए ग़म आबाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
मजबूर हैं हम तुम क्या जानो

वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
ओ ओ ओ
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
किस्मत ने जिन्हें नाशाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 38
——————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal-1965’. This movie was introduced on the blog on this day ten years back viz on 5th July 2009.

The movie ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal-1965’ is known mainly for its ‘epic song’ ‘Caravan guzar gaya’ written by Neeraj. The movie made its debut in the blog with this song.

Whenever I come across ‘milestone movies’, ‘epic movies’, or ‘the movies which have left a mark in the annals of Hindi film history’, I feel the urge to find out more about such movies and to share its songs on the blog if the opportunity for that still exists. I get an opportunity to share a song from this mvie today. I think that it is the first opportunity for me to cover a song composed by Roshan, one of my favourite music directors.

Though only one song from the movie is supposed to be left over, I found out that the number of leftover songs is not one but two.

As per HFGK this movie had seven songs (including one multiple version song) only. Movie information on wiki listed eight songs for this movie.

The one song not mentioned in HFGK is a song which plays in the background when the titles of the movie keeps rolling, and this is the song we are going to present here today.

The other remaining song from the movie is penned by Manmohan Tiwari according to HFGK. However, the movie titles only mention the name of Neeraj ji as lyricist for this movie.
So I guess that the today’s song is also written by Neeraj ji.

(I would request our editors and knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.)

Now, for all such movies and their songs where we wish to cover the relevant details, trivia or biographical information about the ‘cast and crew’ of that movie we always have few posts which comes with such information.
Details of this movie and its songs, including trivia etc are covered in posts on the songs , viz.

Mero sainyya gulabiyo ko phool
Isko bhi apnaata chal usko bhi apnaata chal
and
Caravan guzar gaya gubaar dekhte rahe

After today’s post, just one more song from the movie is left to be covered. I can say that the remaining song will waiting for an appropriate occasion before that song gets covered. 🙂

Looking back at this date ten years back, songs from following movies were covered on the blog on 05th July 2009;

‘Umang-1970’ All Songs covered
‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal-1965’
‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahein-1959’ All Songs covered
‘Jhoola-1962’ All Songs covered
‘Aaraam-1951’ All Songs covered
‘Aarzoo-1950’ All Songs covered

‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ was directed by R. Chandra for Shri. Vishwabharati Films. It had Tanuja, Rajeev, Leela Chitin, Shobhna Samarth, M.A. Latif, Renuka Rai, S.K. Prem, Ulhas, Bhalla, Raj Kishore, Khurshid Bawra and others.

Music for this movie was composed by Roshan and lyrics were written by Neeraj and Manmohan Tiwari (one song).

Today’s song is sung by Bhupinder Singh. It is a background song that plays with titles rolling on the screen. This song also has a second part which appears at the end of the movie.

Today’s song is a motivational song that seeks to inspire the new generation to bring about a positive change in the society for the upliftment of all. Thisis is in complete contrast to the debut song of this this movie ten years back on the blog, which was a ‘melancholic song’ (as Atul ji mentioned in his post ten years ago).

Let us now listen to today’s song …

Lyrics

Nayi umar ke naye sitaaro
Nayi fasal ki nayi bahaaro
Khilo phalo is tarah ke
Poore chaman ka poora libaas badley
Nayi umar ke naye sitaaro
Nayi fasal ki nayi bahaaro

Likho jawaani ke naam khat wo
Ke phool ban jaayen khaar saare
Be-roshni ki lagaao kalmen
Zameen pe ugne lagen ae sitaare
Badaldo pichchhle hisaab aise
Ulat do gham ke naqaab aise
Ke sab ki sab ye zameen badley
Ke sab ka sab ye aakaash badley
Nayi umar ke naye sitaaro
Nayi fasal ki nayi bahaaro
Nayi umar ke naye sitaaro
Nayi fasal ki nayi bahaaro]

Khilo phalo is tarah ke
Poore chaman ka poora libaas badley
Nayi umar ke naye sitaaron
Nayi fasal ki nayi bahaaron

नयी उम्र के नए सितारो
नयी फसल की नयी बहारो
खिलो फलो इस तरह के
पूरे चमन का पूरा लिबास बदले
नयी उम्र के नए सितारो
नयी फसल की नयी बहारो

लिखो जवानी के नाम ख़त वो
के फूल बन जाएँ खार सारे
बे-रौशनी की लगाओ कलमें
ज़मीन पे उगने लगे ए सितारे
बदलदो पिछले हिसाब ऐसे
उलट दो ग़म के नकाब ऐसे
के सब की सब ये ज़मीन बदले
के सब का सब ये आकाश बदले
नयी उम्र के नए सितारो
नयी फसल की नयी बहारो
नयी उम्र के नए सितारो
नयी फसल की नयी बहारो

नयी उम्र के नए सितारो
नयी फसल की नयी बहारो
खिलो फलो इस तरह के
पूरे चमन का पूरा लिबास बदले
नयी उम्र के नए सितारो
नयी फसल की नयी बहारो
