Blog Day :

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 45
——————————————————————————————

Today I present a song from the 1974 movie ‘Aarop’. (Yes! the year of this movie needs to be corrected as ‘1974’. It was passed by Censor Board on 16.01.1974).

“Aarop-1974” is one of the two movies which are falling under ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today on 23.09.2019. The other movie is ‘Fashion-1957’.

As many as six movies were represented on the blog with their songs ten years back on the blog viz on 23.09.2009. Their details as well as the present status of the movies that these songs were from are as under :

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Jhinchak jhinchak Aarop-1973 04 of 07 songs covered
Bahaaron se poochho…laakh sambhaala Fashion-1957 06 of 08 songs covered
Kuchh bhi na bolenge Waaris-1954 All Songs covered in the blog
Mera naram karejwa dol gaya Aarzoo-1950 All Songs covered in the blog
Raat hai taaron bhari Pardes-1950 All Songs covered in the blog
Naina deewaane ek nahin maane Afsar-1950 All Songs covered in the blog

“Aarop-1974” was directed by Atmaram for ‘Gurudutt Films Combine, Bombay’. Atmaram (Guru Dutt’s brother) also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie.

It had Saira Banu, Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Rehman, Bindu, Bharat Bhushan, Keshto Mukherji, Paintal, Gulshan Arora, Kundan, Savita, Manik, Murad, Krishnakant, Jankidas, Rajan Haksar, Maruti, Viju Khote, Pardesi, Bhagwan, Sabina, Chandu, Mohan Choti and Johny Walker.
Lily Chakravarti, Rajesh Behl, Raj Mehra makes a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

Y.G. Chavhan was the editor for this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Vrajendra Gaud. Govind Singh was the Chief Assistant Director and Ram Govind was the assistant in screenplay.

For me I was familiar with only one song ‘nainon mein darpan hai, darpan mein koyi’ . Later on, when I started collecting cassettes, I was looking for this song and then I got to know the name of the movie this song was from. But I think this song was not easily available then.

After many years I came to know about the music composer of this movie and it was Bhupen Hazarika. Earlier I thought that it was composed by the duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

This movie had as many as eight songs in it. Though HFGK mentioned it as having seven songs- including one two-part song.
But, during the preparation for this article I watched this movie which is available online and I think out of the three Manna Dey solo songs two may have been excluded from the movie, or either they have been edited from the version of the movie available online.
(I think correction is also required in HFGK movie page of this movie ‘Aarop-1974’ as the sequence of the songs is not as per their appearance in the movie).

Lyrics for all the songs in this movie were written by Maya Govind. As mentioned above music of this movie was composed by Bhupen Hazarika.
The titles of the movie mentioned that the Bhajans in this movie are based on the tunes of the devotional songs of Saint Kavi Shankar Dev from Assam.

One can experience that essence (or in my words ‘mere desh ki mitti ki khushboo’) in the song being presented today.

Asha Bhonsle (two solo songs), Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar (one duet song only and they most popular from this movie), Laxmi Shankar (one solo), Bhupen Hazarika and K.N. Sharma (one song together) and Manna Dey (three solo songs) gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Out of the eight songs from this movie four songs have already been posted on the blog. From the remaining songs I had option of two Manna Da songs (they are available combined in one link online), one song by Asha Bhonsle (which again is picturized on Bindu, this time a mujra song and ten years back already a cabaret song picturized on Bindu was posted on the same day), and one song sung by Bhupen Hazarika and K.N.Sharma.

When I saw that there is a song having Bhupen Hazarika’s voice and still to be posted I selected this for they presentation today. The video for this song was already available and I came to know that this is not a full video of the song, but partial video only, when I tried to locate the audio/video of other pending songs from this movie. I find that the full audio song was available.
I think today’s song must be the first song in Hindi movies which was sung by Bhupen Hazarika.

On screen it is lip synced by Bharat Bhushan while the ‘shlokas’ from Bhagwat Geeta are played in the background. Saira Banu is also present during this song which is picturized in a temple where Bharat Bhushan is the priest.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie earlier and I watched it during the preparation of this article. I must say that the movie is an interesting movie to watch and all the characters shown and the artists performing them seems perfectly fit into it.
(I am avoiding to mention about the story line of the movie to keep intact the interest of those who may want to watch it).
The overall presentation is a balanced one and the movie keeps us engaged till the end.

Its songs are also good, but I think only the song ‘nainon mein darpan hai, darpan mein koyi’ was popular and that song was frequently played at that time on radio. I must have heard it earlier and but watching it now and listening to it again and again was enjoying.

Dialogues of the movie are also very nice and go well with the storyline of the movie and the fight between ‘virtuous’ and the ‘evil’.
I am not aware how this movie fared at the box-office then.

Let us now enjoy today’s song, which grows on us if we listen to it a few times.

Blog Day :

4083 Post No. : 15223

The date today 22 september 2019. It is a sunday.

Ten years ago, this date (22 september 2009) was a working day. I was in Nagpur, Maharashtra. Despite that day being a working day, I had covered as many as eight songs on that day. Posting six or more songs in a day used to be no big deal for me.

Here are the details of the eight songs that were covered on 22 september 2009.

Song (Movie title) Year Posting time Remarks
Aandhiyaan gham ki yoon chalin (Zeenat) 1945 1:29 All Songs covered on the blog
Wo marne se nahin darte (Shama Parwaana) 1954 2:19 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaye chaand ne aansoo (Lagan) 1955 5:00 TWO/out of Eight songs covered
Ritu aaye ritu jaaye (Hamdard) 1953 5:38 All Songs covered on the blog
Mujh ko tum jo mil gaye (Detective) 1958 7:10 Seven/out of Eight songs covered
Idhar to haath la pyaare (Aakhri Daao) 1958 7:59 All Songs covered on the blog
Bahaaron se poochho (Mera Ghar Mere Bachche) 1960 8:11 Five/out of Nine songs covered
Dharti 1970 8:34 All Songs covered on the blog

As can be noticed, I was awake till 2:19 AM after midnight and I had already posted two songs for the day. They I went back to sleep and woke up before 5 AM. Then I posted six more songs. The eights and final song for the day was posted at 8:24 AM !

Those were the days when I could post eight songs in a day by early morning ! What productivity ! 🙂

I hardly slept those days and that did not even affect my health. My wife, whenever she would join me would make adverse comments about my tendency to sleep less. Her persistent nagging may have finally borne fruit because these days I neither keep awake that late nor do I wake up so early. And I no longer post that many songs in a day. I actually wonder now how I was that motivated one decade ago.

By contrast from ten years ago, today (22 september 2019)I have so far posted just one post.

Here is the second song from the day, when it is already evening. This song is part of the blog ten year challenge. As can be seen from the table above, four out of eight movies have been YIPPEED by now. So only the remaining movies can be taken up for this ten year challenge.

The song taken up for this challenge is from “Lagan”(1955). This movie was produced by directed by O P Dutta for O P Films, Bombay. The movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Sajjan, Shammi, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Baby Naaz, Pappu, Om Prakash, Shamlal, Ram Avtar, Baij Sharma, Pt Iqbal, Shivrj, Uma Dutt, Parshuram, Kanwar Kesho etc , with guest appearance by David.

The song under discussion is the third song out of eight songs that this movie has.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricisr. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song appears to be a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scparwala.

Blog Day : 4069 Post No. : 15206

Today (8 september 2019) is the birth anniversary of Bhupen Hazarika (8 September 1926 – 5 November 2011).

It is appropriate that we honour him in the blog with a song. Lyrics of the song (sent by Avinash Scrapwala) is there with me. When I listened to the song, I wanted to listen to the original Assamese song. That opened a Pandora’s box. I discovered such a goldmine of information about Bhupen Hazarika, Assam, Assamese culture and History etc that it became a case of information overload for me. Now I have so much information to discuss that I do not known where to begin.

The thought that immediately came to my mind is whether Bhupen Hazarika has got his due recognition. The answer is, yes, belatedly, but his contribution has been recognised and he received Bharat Ratna this year in 2019. A posthumous recognition, and a richly deserved one.

The contribution of Bhupen Hazarika in putting North East part of India in general and Assam in particular and bringing its rich culture to the notice of outsiders is immense.

He began very young and visited all over the world and became a truly cosmopolitan Indian. And he never forgot his roots !

Assam and North East is a remote part of India, and it was considered a “punishment” post for Indians living in other parts of the country. That was mainly because this part of the country was neglected and underdeveloped. The aspirations and feelings of this part of the country were not properly addressed. This led to feeling of alienation and led to separatist movements and militancy.

I had the experience of being posted in this “punishment” posting area from 2000 to 2003. These three years helped me understand Assam and North East first hand by interacting with the natives of the region. And I realised how their hopes, aspirations, demands etc were falling into deaf ears for decades.

Now, for the last few years, attempts has been made to make the people of north East region feel like every one else. The infrastructure works that were languishing for decades have been fast tracked. In 2000, I was posted in Lumding division. The MG line from Lumding to Badarpur and beyond in South Assam was planned for BG conversion but the progress was abysmally slow. During the last few years, this project was fast tracked and now we finally have BG line between Lumding and South Assam. A travel between Silchar to Lumding, which took 12 hours now takes five hours. This remote area now feels more mainstream with rest of Assam. Assam itself now feels more mainstream in India than ever before.

In the past, roads and bridges would not be constructed in border areas because China used to object. Now the government ignores such Chinese protests and goes ahead with the construction work. That is how the long pending demands of Assam and North East were met. Bogibeel Bridge, which was a demand since 1985, in the agreement signed between AASU and Indian Government was gathering dust for decades before this bridge finally got constructed and inaugurated in 2019. One year ago, another bridge (which too was not getting constructed in the past because of Chinese protests) got finished and was inaugurated. This bridge over river Lohit, connecting Dhola and Sadia ( the longest road bridge in India), was very appropriately named as Bhupen Hazarika Bridge.

At a time when North East felt alienated from rest of India, it was people like Bhupen Hazarika who kept their morale high and kept their hopes alive, and kept their faith in India intact.

Not just India, even the neighboring Bangladesh regards him highly. His iconic Assamese folk song Manush Manusher Jonno (Humans are for humanity) was chosen to be the second most favourite number after the National anthem of Bangladesh, in a Bangladeshi opinion poll.

Many of his Assamese songs became known all over India after their Hindi versions were made. One such album of his songs was “Main aur Mera Saaya”(1993). Here, Gulzar translated some of Bhupen Hazarika’s iconic Assamese songs into Hindi.

These Hindi songs became so popular that they are sung all over India by artists and they are performed by school children in their cultural programmes.

Here is the song “Ek Kali Do Pattiyaan” from this album. Bhupen Hazarika had sung this song originally in Assamese as “Eti Kuhi Duti Paat”. This song has subseuently been sung by many other artists, in Assamese as well as Hindi, and I guess in other languages as well.

Here is this goose bump inducing folk song from Assam, beautifully translated into Hindi by Gulzar. The song is sung and composed by Bhupen Hazarika.

As mentioned above, the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 4035 Post No. : 15159

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 42
——————————————————————————————

Though I have been discussing Hindi movie songs in the blog for more than a decade now, it is not as if I had watched too many movies during my “formative” years. I recall having watched a few movies in early 1970s, with the last of these movies being “Zindagi Zindagi” (1972) in 1972.

My movie watching spree began in 1978 (after six years) when I joined college and got “freedom” that I as a college goer was “supposed” to enjoy. 🙂 And I fully misused my freedom, by watching movies when I should have been attending my classes.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched not just the current movies but also those movies which had come between 1972 and 1978 which I had missed during their time. This included all Amitabh Bachchan hit movies like “Zanjeer” (1973), “Deewaar”(1975), “Sholay” (1975) etc.

When my pre teen movie watching ended in 1972, I had watched very few movies. I could only identify Rajesh Khanna, Tanuja, Mumtaz etc thanks to Rajesh Khanna movies like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) that I got to watch at that time. Thanks to watching “Haqeeqat”(1964) is an open field show at night in my railway colony, I became familiar with Dharmendra. In another such free show, I watched “Dil Diya Dard Liya”(1966) and that is how I became familiar with Dilip Kumar.

That was about it. I had not watched any movies of Rajendra Kumar, Raj Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Sanjeev Kumar, Saira Bano etc till 1978 !

During my “catching up with lost time” movie watching spree, I watched “Resham Ki Dori”(1974) some time in 1978 or 1979. This movie, as I know now thanks to HFGK, was directed by Atmaram for Modern Pictures Bombay. The movie had Saira Bano, Dharmendra, Kumud Chhugaani, Rajendranath, Sujit Kumar, Sajja, Ramesh Deo, Rajan Haksar, Jayshree T, Kundan, Meena T, Bhagwan, Shabnam, Sapru, Shivraj, Jankidas, Keshav Rana, Sundar, Master Sachin, Ramlal, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Radheshyam, Chaand Usmani (Special appearance), Kanwar Ajit, Suresh, Murad etc in it.

Except Dharmendra, almost every other actor in the movie was “new” and unfamiliar for me. Many of them continued to remain unfamiliar to me for decades. For instance, I was not aware which actress played the sister of Dharmendra in this movie. Somehow I had erroneously assumed that she was called Urmila Bhatt (I find , to my surprise that she is not even there in the cast). Only now, when I checked up the starcast, I realised that the sister had to be Kumud Chhugaani.

The movie had six songs in it. The most popular song of the song was the raakhi song and it was posted exactly ten years ago. So that means that this day ten year ago was the festival of Rakshabandhan. And as was the practice in the blog, Rakhi related songs were discussed on the blog on that day (5 august 2009).

Song Movie Remarks

Today, as part of blog ten year challenge (2009-2019), here is a song from “Resham Ki Dori”(1974). This song is a lovers’s song. It is sung by Rafi, with a few sweet nothings uttered by Saira Bano (I guess). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Dharmendra and Saira Bano. It was for the first time in this movie that I had seen Saira Bano in a movie. I had not seen her in “Padosan”(1968) because my elders did not take me to watch this (or other well known movies) of those days.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 4030 Post No. : 15147

It is that day of the year again.

The 31st of July.

A date that doesn’t need any reminder for lovers of HFM.

Of all the days in the calendar, a few stand out – and the 31st of July is one of them.

For it is the death anniversary of one of the most loved and respected figures of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, respectfully referred to as Rafisaab.

Today on his 39th death anniversary, we on this blog, remember him with great fondness and respect.

I’ve written about Rafisaab many times here on this blog. In fact, there’s no one I have written about more than about Rafisaab.

To be honest, there really isn’t anything more for me to say that I haven’t already said before.

How I, growing up in a Kishore-dominated era, fell in love with Rafisaab’s voice.

How I’ve done all-nighters listening to Rafisaab songs, completely losing track of time.

How much I respect Rafisaab for being such a good human being, inspite of having the power to abuse his position, if he had wanted.

I’ve written about all this – and more. And I don’t want to bore readers here by repeating stuff.

Not that I get bored of writing about Rafisaab. Never. When I don’t ever get bored of listening to his voice, how can I possibly get bored of writing about him? It is such a pleasure, and an honour, to write about Rafisaab.

So whether I have any new material or not, I will write about Rafisaab – even if it is only a few lines. That is the very least I can do for someone who has given me so much joy in life. And on his Remembrance Day, I just have to write a few lines for him – to thank him for everything.

Different people make a mark in this world for different reasons. Not all leave a legacy of course, but I doubt even those who do, have any idea of the magnitude of the legacy they would leave behind. And its endurability.

I doubt Rafisaab thought about all this when he was alive. He was a simple man, happy to earn his living through the one profession that he loved, and knew he was loved for – singing. Even for that, he was humble enough to always point upwards, to God, to suggest He was to thank for everything.

Rafisaab was very soft-spoken. For all his animation while singing, he was an extremely shy person in conversation and avoided interviews. Which is also why there are very few interviews of him available out there. It is our loss, but then that was the person he was. At least we have his songs, and anecdotes of those who knew him with us.

Rafisaab was devoted to his profession – he would do riyaaz for hours. He enjoyed spending time with his family. And enjoyed playing badminton. And good food. A man who always had a smile on his lips, who never thought ill for others – on the contrary, he went out of his way to help others.

A simple man – but what a legacy!

One that he would never have imagined during his lifetime.

Even today, 39 years after he is gone, there isn’t a day when his songs are not playing on radio. There isn’t a day when HFM lovers from around the world are not listening to his songs on whatever device they have. Today, thanks to technology, we have access to music on demand.

Yes, Rafisaab has enriched the lives of millions by his sheer voice. And that, for decades. And, I am sure, will continue for decades too. Such is the love people have for Rafisaab. It transcends generations.

This is another aspect that makes me really happy for him. It is great to see young generations today, even teenagers, listen to Rafisaab’s songs. Of course, their music interests are current too – and they should be. But from what I’ve seen, many of them are still happy to listen to old HFM songs – and Rafisaab, of course. Which is why I say Rafisaab’s voice transcends generations.

In my own case, I know my next generation is also very fond of Rafisaab. My niece’s husband invariably plays Rafisaab songs in his car. Not just for me, but for himself too. Not that my niece complains. She is herself very fond of Rafisaab. 🙂 They like current songs too, but Rafisaab is a fixture in their car. Especially 1960s songs like “dil ke jharoke mein”, “pukaarta chala hoon main” and “deewana hua baadal”. I swear, I did nothing to influence them – it all happened by itself. 🙂 Actually, my niece’s father-in-law is also a Rafisaab fan, so maybe that played a role too.

Now my niece has a kid – he is not even 3, but I have a feeling he will also soon be listening to Rafisaab. 🙂

I will not be surprised if this is the story in many other families too. I hope it is – then Rafisaab’s legacy is in safe hands.

Rafisaab deserves nothing less. A person with such a divine voice, a person who had such a good heart, who did good for so many, deserves every little bit of love and respect he gets.

I always have a warm feeling, and feel energized, when I discuss, or write about, Rafisaab. His songs immediately come to my mind, THAT voice, those intonations in the rendering. I get lost, happily so, thinking about his songs.

I can keep going on and on, but then I will be repeating what I’ve written in the past. And will be boring the readers. 🙂

So I’ll just move on to the song for today.

This is from Jaani Dushman (1979). A decade right up my sleeve, given that I’m a 1970s boy. Avinashji, himself a huge Rafisaab fan, sent me the lyrics and requested me to do a write-up.

By the late 70s, Rafisaab had regained his place in public mindspace. The first half of the decade had been totally dominated by Kishore Kumar (inspite of a few Rafisaab hits). But by the mid-70s, Rafisaab began coming back. I remember Laila Majnu (1976) songs being a success. A year later, he had chartbuster hit songs in Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Hum Kisise Kam Nahin (1977) and Apnapan (1977), to mention just three films.

And so he continued, with hits in Abdullah (1980) and Karz (1980), right until his untimely death.

Jaani Dushman (1979) was during his revival phase.

The film has the popular, foot-tapping Rafisaab-Asha Bhosle duet “tere haathon mein pehna ke chudiyaan”, but also the song of today “chalo re doli utthao kahaar” (which comes multiple times in the film, if I remember right), was popular too.

The film itself is a multi-starrer in keeping with the trend of the time. Those were the days of multi-starrers – many commercial films had two or more lead heroes and heroines. JD went a step further, and must be considered a mother of multi-starrers – it had at least 5 “heroes” – Jeetendra, Sanjeev Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Shatrughan Sinha and Sunil Dutt. And Rekha, Reena Roy, Bindiya Goswami, Neetu Singh and Sarika amongst the “heroines”. Other movies of that era that were multi-multi-starrers that come to mind are Naagin (1976) and the Burning Train (1980).

I remember seeing the film at the time, but given my pathetic memory, I don’t remember too much of it. I do remember that it was meant to be a horror film of sorts, where a monster is supposed to murder every newly-wed bride. Something like that.

The songs of the film were quite popular, and the film too did well I think.

“Chalo re doli utthao kahaar” is a background song, picturised during the bidaai of a daughter as she leaves her parents’ home. It is a typical Rafisaab song – he was very good at emotional, background songs of this type. With their ebbs and flows.

Talking of emotional, background songs, am reminded of Ravi, the composer of songs of Waqt (1965) saying he had insisted with the Chopras on Rafisaab singing “waqt se din aur raat”, though Mahendra Kapoor, and not Rafisaab, was generally their preferred singer. He had said that this song would suit Rafisaab more than anyone else.

Similarly Kalyanji Anandji picked Rafisaab to sing a couple of lines as background song in that death scene in Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978) – “zindagi to bewafa hai, ek din thukraayegi”. Anandji said in an interview that he was a bit embarrassed to ask Rafisaab to sing those lines, because he had no other song in the film, and it was only a couple of lines. But he wanted them to be in Rafisaab’s voice. Without the slightest ego, Rafisaab rendered those lines with his usual high standards.

L-P, ever loyal to Rafisaab, even during Kishore Kumar’s peak, used him to render the emotional background song “nafrat ki duniya ko chhod ke” of Haathi Mere Saathi (1971) even though Kishore Kumar sings the songs picturised on Rajesh Khanna.

This song for today is also an L-P composition. I request you to please listen to this song – and remember Rafisaab today.

Rafisaab, you will always be in our hearts. The years roll by, but the love and respect does not diminish one bit. For what you’ve given the world, millions are ever grateful to you.

Personally, I can’t thank you enough, hence this post as a humble tribute.

(As mentioned above, lyrics for today’s song have been provided to me by Avinashji. I thank him for providing me these lyrics).

Blog Day : 4028 Post No. : 15144

Today, 29th July, is the 66 birthday for Anoop Jalota, the renowned singer of classical and semi-classical music. Known as the Bhajan Samrat, his forte is in the arena of religious bhajans and devotional songs. Here is wishing him many many happy returns of this day.

Anoop was born this day in 1953, in Nainital. His late father, Purushottam Das Jalota has also been a renowned singer of devotional songs himself. Anoop got his initial education in classical music at the Bhatkhande Music Institute in Lucknow. He started his singing career as a chorus singer at All India Radio. Over the years, he has sung popular sugam sangeet and ghazals also. But he has not been as famous and successful in that area. He started singing devotional songs and for that, he has become very popular. He was honored with the award of Padam Shri in 2012.

His songs in Hindi films are quite limited, although I do find two songs by him already on our blog. Today’s song is from the 1977 film ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’. This song is written by Pandurang Dixit and its music is also composed by him. On screen, this song is performed by Manmohan Krishan.

The film is produced by the Sarla Charities Trust, and is directed by Ashok V Bhushan. It is a screen adaptation of the biographical book on Sai Baba by the late Shri Govindrao Dhabolkar. The cast of actors includes Sudhir Dalvi in the title role, Manmohan Krishan, Raj Mehra, B M Vyas, Usha Chauhan, Beerbal, Nazeer Kashmiri, C S Dubey, Gurbachan Singh, Jyotsana Kirpekar, Preetam Balley, Vatsala Deshmukh, Ratanmala Pandit, Bhawna, Master Teeto, and Master Raju. The film has many special and guest appearances, viz., Rajendra Kumar, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Premnath, Manoj Kumar, Madan Puri, Sachin, Dhiraj Kumar, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Satish, and Kuljeet.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Some are traditional, and the remaining are penned by Dev Krishan, Manoj Kumar and Pandurang Dixit. The latter is also the music director  for this film. One song of this film is already showcased here on our blog.

In this song, the on screen performer is Manmohan Krishan. He is leading a few others, including some police personnel and taking them to the place where Sai Baba resides.

This song was recorded in 1977, when Anoop would have been just 24 years of age. One can make out the difference in the quality of the voice – in this song and his singing 40 years hence, in the current period.

The Bhajan itself is written and composed very beautifully. Exhorting the listener to meditate on the universality of the message of brotherhood, and the underlying unity and commonalities of all the religions and beliefs. That is the message of Sai Baba – ‘Sab Ka Maalik Ek’ – that the Supreme One is the One and same for all people.

Blog Day : 4028 Post No. : 15142

In old days, we had days of specialists. Hero, Heoine would sing songs, play lovey dovey, etc.

Villain’s would made the life of hero and heoine miserable. They would have mujra and or cabarat dancers as part of villain’s set up.
Singing quawwali in disguise would be the response of the lead actors.

Then there was comic side plot. And then character artists, such as parents of the lead actors, siblings of the lead actors etc.

From 1970s onwards, days of multitasking began and specialists found themselves threatened. Here the hero himself would do comedy as well as villainy. The heroine would perform cabarat/ mujra herself.

Fortunately, one did not witness multi tasking till 1960s and specialists ruled the roost those days.

As far as comedy was concerned, Johny Walker was the go to man, and he was followed by Mehmood.

When I try to analyse Johny Walker’s comedy, I find that his comedy often involved being in the wrong books of ladies. Sometimes he would find himself on the wrong side of dogs as well. 🙂

Johny Walker had acted in not one but two movies called “Baazi”, viz “Baazi” (1951) and “Baazi”(1968). “Baazi”(1951) was his debut movie, whereas “Baazi”(1968) came towards the fag end of his career.

“Baazi”(1968), lesser known that the 1951 namesake, was directed by Moni Bhattacharya for Golden Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Helen, Ansari, Nazir Hussain, Ullhas, Chans Usmani, Amar, Manmohan, Keshto Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Today (29 july 2019) is the 16th remembrance day of Johny Walker (11 November 1926 – 29 July 2003). As a tribute to him, here is a song from “Baazi”(1968). IT is a Johny Walker type comedy song, viz a song where he is in trouble at the hands of the fair sex. It turns out that he sees not one but two ladies simultanously and he finally gets caught by both.

So here is this song from “Baazi”(1968). it is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song shows Johny Walker being taken to task by Helen and Shammi. Singing while being chased by two ladies, that is Johny Walker for us. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Are dil hamaara

Husn waalon ka akhaadaa
Akhaadaa ho gaya
Apne hi haathon se khud apna

Ek anaar
Do beemaar
Ek anaar do beemaar
Kaisi uljhan mein hain pyaar
Badi mushkil hai
Haan Badi mushkil hai
Haan haan badi mushkil hai ae

Do do ulfat ke bazaar

Koyi mere ae
Koyi mere do tukde kar ke
Rok de is bumbaari ko o o o
Koi mere do tukde karke
Rok de is bumbaari ko
Ek tukdaa shole ko de de
Aur ik tukdaa chingaari ko
Is jhamele se yaaron main gharbra gaya aa
Is jhamele se yaaron main gharbra gaya
Dil dhadkane lagaa
Sar bhi chakra gaya
Gaya gaya gaya aa aa
Meri khaatir do do yaar
Meri khaatir do do yaar
Ladne marne ko taiyyaar hain
Badi mushkil hai
Haan badi mushkil hai
Haan haan badi mushkil hai
Ek anaar do beemaar

Badi mushkil hai
Haan badi mushkil hai
O ho badi mushkil hai

Uparwaale ae
Uparwaale ne mujhko
Do kaan diye do aankhen
Do o kaan diye do aankhen
Mil jaate jo do dil mujhko
Phir yoon naa ukhadti saansen
Phir yoon naa ukhadti saanse
Do ke chakkar mein meri akal phans gayi

Maine kheli thhi single

Do do ulfat ke bazaar

Badi mushkil hai
Haan badi mushkil hai
Haan haan badi mushkil hai ae ae ae

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”.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 33
——————————————————————————————

30th May – ten years ago. The steady pace of six songs per day is quite natural, and consistent. The six movies that were represented that day are

  • Chaandni Chowk             1954
  • Aas Ka Panchhi               1961
  • Aadhi Raat Ke Baad         1965
  • Zanjeer                          1973
  • Hamshakal                      1974
  • Bhola Bhaalaa                 1978

The first four films on this list above are already fully represented on our blog. The reprisal song for today is from the 1978 film ‘Bhola Bhaala’. This film is directed by Satpal, under the banner of Venkteshewara Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors is listed as Rajesh Khanna, Rekha, Maushumi Chatterjee, Joginder, Satyen Kappu, Sulochana, Pinchoo Kapoor, V Gopal, Sudhir Thakkar, Jankidas, Rajkumar, Devraj, Master Chiku, Shakti, Ashu, Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Sudhir, Ratnamala, Raj Mehra, and Aruna Irani.

The six songs in this film are all penned by Anand Bakshi. Music direction is by RD Burman. This is the third song of this film to appear on our blog.

On screen, this song is lip synced by Rajesh Khanna, disguised as a sanyaasi. Rekha also appears in this song, as the main dancer attraction. She is also wearing saffron clothes, but she is not lip syncing. Apparently, a certain rich man is making an offering of a costly chhatr (‘छत्र’), as he has been blessed with a son after a very long wait.

This song seems to be a song of deception, to steal that costly offering. I have not seen this film, and so I request other knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this film and this song situation.

Blog Day : 3921 Post No. : 14986

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 28
————————————————

Looking at 13th April of ten years ago, the post score card was six songs.

Ghar Aaya Mera Pardesi Aawaara 1951
Teri Duniya Me Jeene Se To Behtar Hai Ke Mar Jaayen House No 44 1955
Tu Kahan Ye Bataa Is Nasheeli Raat Mein Tere Ghar Ke Saamne 1963
Iktara Bole Yaadgaar 1970
O Neele Parbaton Ki Dhaara Aadmi Aur Insaan 1969
Prem Kahaani Me Ik Ladka Hota Hai Prem Kahaani 1975

Two of the six films represented that day had made their debut – ‘House No. 44’ (1955) and ‘Yaadgaar’ (1970). Of the six films, five are already yippeee’d over the past 10 years. The one film that still awaits all its songs to be posted is ‘Yaadgaar’. Today, we bring to fore the fourth third song of this film, from a total of six songs listed.

Manoj Kumar, having started his career in 1958 with films like ‘Panchaayat’ and ‘Sahaara’, turned a writer and a producer less than a decade later. His first venture was ‘Shaheed’ in released 1965. The film was directed by S Ram Sharma under the banner of KPK Movies, Bombay. Then in 1967, under the new banner of Vishal International, he produced and directed ‘Upkar’. Coming close on the heels of the 1965 conflict with Pakistan, and the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri in Jan 1966, this film rode a wave of popularity on the sentiments of nationalism and social integration, and became one of the major blockbusters of the 1960s. The film also established the image and tag name of Mr. Bharat for him.

In 1970, he followed it up with ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, again from his own banner of Vishal International, another film that is on the same theme of nationalism and Indian culture, further strengthening that image. The fact that the title role he played in these two films has the name ‘Bharat’ helped a lot, of course.

In 1970 came another film that followed in the footsteps of his earlier creations, with the similar socially relevant theme of nationalism and Indian culture. Although not from the banner of Vishal International (the production house was Kunal Chitra, Bombay), the film was directed by S Ram Sharma, an old friend who had also directed ‘Shaheed’ of 1965. As with ‘Shaheed’, the story and screenplay is written by Manoj Kumar himself.

The cast of actors for this film is listed as Nutan, Manoj Kumar, Pran, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Mehmood (Junior), Madan Puri, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Lalita Chatterjee, Asit Sen, Lakshmichaya, Shammi, Manmohan, Paulson, Jayshree, Kuljeet, Renu, Raj Kishore, Harbans Pape, Kirti Behal, Manohar, Naidu, Beerbal, Hansraj, Shrinath, Mohan Jerry, Dubey, Sabeena, Manohar Gosvai, Kesho Rana, Brahm Bhardwaj, Sobati, Aleeja, Genius, Darshan M, Ravikant, Chandra, Mohan Chhotu, Narbada Shankar, and Ramlal etc. One cannot help but notice a set of names that had had become regular in the cast of actors in his films – Kamini Kaushal, Pran, Madan Puri, Prem Chopra, Asit Sen, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Manmohan, Shammi etc.

The theme song of this film is “Iktaara Bole, Sun Sun Kya Kahe Ye Tumse”. The song was a major hit in its time, as the film tried to address the malaise of degradation of social values in the Indian society. The song touches upon a series of topics like population, corruption in routine life, fashion, cold war and deteriorating relations between nations, political leaders, religious dogmas etc. The theme runs in parallel to the romantic love interest between Manoj Kumar and Nutan, touching also upon the class/caste conflict in the society.

This song carries forward this message of class/caste conflict and the desire for social equality. The scenario relates to the class conflict in religion. A number of people are waiting outside a temple, to enter and to worship theie God. But the pujari (priest) at the temple, temporarily halts the entry of devotees into the temple, as the chief patron of the temple is expected shortly. Rana Shamsher Singh (role played by Tiwari) is the rich man who has provided the funding for the temple, and so the temple is known by his name – Rana Mandir. As other devotees wait to enter the temple, a war of words breaks out between Bhanu (name of the role played by Manoj Kumar, thankfully not Bharat, as in ‘Upkar’ and ‘Purab Aur Paschim’) and Rana, which turns into this song that tells about God and his relationship to His devotees. The words tell that God is not necessarily housed in the temple, and that He also manifests Himself in many other locations and endeavors that also involve the poor and the downtrodden of the society.

The words of this song are from the pen of Indeewar, who also wrote the iconic “Kasme Waade Pyaar Wafa Sab. . .” for Manoj Kumar’s ‘Upkar’. The music is by Kalyanji Anandji. This music director duo was the regular MDs for Manoj Kumar’s films – ‘Upkar’, ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Yaadgar’. But come 1972, Manoj Kumar switched to Laxmikant Pyaarelal with his next venture ‘Shor’.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor, the playback singer that Manoj Kumar preferred for himself. Listen to this typical ‘Bharat’ message that helped further strengthen the image of Mr Bharat.

Song – Wo Khet Mein Milega, Khalihaan Mein Milega  (Yaadgaar) (1970) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapvaala)

aaye jahaan bhagwaan se pehle
kisi dhanwaan ka naam
us mandir ke dwaar khade khud
royen krishna aur raam

dhanwaan ko pehle miley
bhagwaan ke darshan
darshan ko tarastaa rahey
jo bhakt ho nirdhan
ye dakshina ki reet
ye pandon ke chhalaawe
dukaan mein biktey huye
mandir ke chadhaawe
aise hi agar
aise hi agar dharm ka vyaapar
chalega
bhagwaan ka duniya mein
koi naam na legaa
aisi jageh pe jaa ke tu kuchh bhi na paayega
bhagwaan aisa mandir khud chhod jaayegaa
chhod jaayega
chhod jaayega

bhagwaan raana mandir mein nahin
to aur kahaan milegaa

wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein ae milegaa
khalihaan mein milegaa
bhagwaan to ae bande..ae
bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milegaa
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milegaa

dhanwaan jo hai jhoothha..aa
ho ho o o 
shaitaan ke baraabar
aa aa aa aa
nirdhan agar hai sachchaa
bhagwaan ke baraabar
wo dhong mein nahin hai
imaan mein milegaa..aa
wo khet mein milegaa

ganga se bhi hai paawan
ho ho o o 
mazdoor ka paseena
aa aa aa aa
paani na koi samjhe
anmol ye nagina
aise hi paseenon ke nirmaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein milegaa

geeta sunaa rahaa hai..ae
aawaaz mein kalon ki..ee
taqdeer likh rahaa hai
nokon se wo halon ki..ee
mazdoor mein milegaa aa
wo kisaan mein ae milegaa aa
wo khet mein ae milegaa
khalihaan mein milegaa
bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milega..aa
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milega
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milega
wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milega

bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milega

आये जहां भगवान से पहले
किसी धनवान का नाम
उस मंदिर के द्वार खड़े खुद
रोयें कृष्ण और राम

धनवान को पहले मिले
भगवान् के दर्शन
दर्शन को तरसता रहे
जो भक्त हो निर्धन
ये दक्षिणा कि रीत
ये पंडों के छलावे
दूकान में बिकते हुए
मंदिर के चढ़ावे
ऐसे ही अगर॰॰र
ऐसे ही अगर धर्म का व्यापार चलेगा
भगवान् का दुनिया में
कोई नाम ना लेगा
ऐसी जगह पे जाके तू कुछ भी न पायेगा
भगवान् ऐसा मंदिर खुद छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा

(भगवान् राणा मंदिर में नहीं
तो और कहाँ मिलेगा)

वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में ए मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे॰॰ए
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

धनवान जो है झूठा॰॰आ
हो हो ओ ओ
शैतान के बराबर
आ आ आ आ
निर्धन अगर है सच्चा
भगवान् के बराबर
वो ढोंग में नहीं है
ईमान में मिलेगा॰॰आ॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गंगा से भी है पावन
हो हो ओ ओ
मजदूर का पसीना
आ आ आ आ
पानी न कोई समझे
अनमोल ये नगीना
ऐसे ही पसीनों के निर्माण में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गीता सुना रहा है॰॰ए
आवाज़ में कलों कि॰॰ई
तकदीर लिख रहा है
नोकों से वो हलों की॰॰ई
मजदूर में मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो किसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ     
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा


भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा
