“Mahasati Behula”(1964) was directed by Shanti Kumar for Adarshlok, Bombay. The movie had Mahipal, Jaimala, Lalita Pawar, Niranjan Sharma, Ulhas, Mridula etc in it.

This by now forgotten mythological movie had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Today (5 July 2020) is the 38th remembrance day of Bharat Vyas (6 January 1918-5 July 1982 ). As a tribute to this legendary lyricist, who worked mostly in mythological movies, here is another song from “Mahasati Behula”(1964).

Like the first song, this song too is a duet which is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Mukesh. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Shivram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that this song is picturised on Mahipal and Jaimala.

This song mentions “poonam ka chaand” and that makes this song a topical song, seeing that today is poornima (guru poornima). In addition, today this poonam ka chaand is also figuring in a chandragrahan, the third chandragrahan for the year 2020.

Today (2 july 2020) is the 66th birth anniversary of Sayeed Mohammed Aziz-un-Nabi, better known as singer Mohammed Aziz (2 July 1954 – 27 November 2018).

I was under the impression that he made his debut as a playback singer in 1970s. I was mistaking him with Anwar, who began his career in 1970s. Mohammad Aziz made his debut as a playback singer in HFM in 1984. He shot to fame with “Main mard taange waala”, the title song of “Mard”(1985). He then sung some other memorable songs. One of them being “Mai se meena se na saaqi se”.

On the occasion of his birth anniversary, here is a song from “Aakhir Kyon”(1985). This song is sung by Md Aziz. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song gets played on a radio / two in one while Rajesh Khanna and Smita Patil, playing an estranged couple, look on.

The lyrics of the song are quite inspirational. The lyrics makes this song a forgotten gem.

I would prefer to stop counting the numbers, and rather go by the impressions in the memory. Well, it sounds so unbelievable that Nitin Mukesh turns 70 today. It seems like just a little while ago that we heard him sing for the first time in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970). It was actually an unlisted song, in English. A song of good wishes and greetings – “Wish Me Luck”.

Then in 1981, when the song “Zindagi Ki Na Toote Ladi” from the film ‘Kranti’ was doing the rounds of popularity, my first impression on hearing this voice was – how come, was this song recorded earlier? The voice sounds so close to the voice of Mukesh, his father. Well yes, the voice is distinct, if one is listening carefully. But it also has an unmistakable shade of Mukesh’s voice.

Nitin Mukesh was born this day in 1950. Although he made his singing debut in 1970, his songs are few and far between in that first decade of his career. His more active years were the 1980s and 1990s. And even so, one cannot count his career as being prolific.

Today’s song is from the 1981 film ‘Nakhuda’. It was a big banner film of its time, produced by Yash Chopra for Yash Raj Films. The film is directed by Dilip Naik. The star cast for the film is Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Swaroop Sampat, Raj Kiran, Madan Puri, Javed Khan, Vikas Anand, Sudhir Dalvi, Bharat Kapoor, Madhu Malhothra, Mac Mohan, Yunus Parvez, Asha Sachdev, Jagdish Raj, Mahaan, Murlidhar, Bandini, Nandini, Umesh, Murari, Chand, Raj Verma, Chandu, Pardesi, Amarnath, Rajesh, and Rauf Khan.

The film has 6 songs. One song is a composition by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and also sung by him. The remaining 5 songs are from the pen of Nida Fazli, and have been tuned to music by Khayyaam. One song of this film is already showcased on our blog. This is the second song of this film to make its appearance here today. Lyrics for this song have been sent in by our dear Avinash ji.

On screen, the song is picturized on Raj Kiran and Swaroop Sampat. As the words indicate, this is an ‘expectant parents’ song, with the characters expressing happiness and love for each other, with the knowledge that another member of the family is on way.

Wishing Nitin Mukesh, a very happy birthday, and also many many more years of good health and active singing. All the best wishes to him.

There are a few dates that every Indian knows by heart. For instance. Independence day (15 august), Republic day (26 january) and Mahatma Gandhi birth anniversary (2 october). India observes official holidays on these days.

There are some more important days in the history of India and most of them have to do with birth / death anniversaries of eminent persons. These dates are mostly associated with Indian freedom struggle followed by birth pangs of Independence.

The newly independent India was a desperately poor, undernourised, illiterate nation, lying in utter disarray and confusion. There were a few famous foreigners who were convnced that India as a nation was going to be shortlived.

The first few decades of independent India were very difficult. Indians had low self esteem and they had little to show for at the world level in any sphere.

Sports was considered a luxury that the poor nation could not afford. It was popularly believed that one who studied moved ahead in life whereas one who devoted time to sports was a slacker who would be a failure in his future life. -“Padhoge likhoge banoge nawaab Kheloge koodoge hoge kharaab”- it was a very popular saying in Hindi. There is even a song in a Hindi movie containing his idiom.

India had very few sporting achievements. Indians celebrated those few and far between sporting achievements quite hard. India was a powerhouse in Hockey and they used to win gold medals in Olympics continuously till 1956 Olympics. After that they began to get challenged, first by newly independent Pakistan (who won the gold in 1960 Olympics defeating India) and then by Europe and the downfall of Indian hockey began. 1964 Olympics gold and 1975 World cup title were exceptions rather than rule. After 1975, India never won any major international Hockey tournament.

India was no good in any other sports.

Cricket was very popular in India though this popularity did not translate into excellence. Cricket was popular among the “middle” class Indians. Majority of Indians considered themselves as “Middle” class those days. The reason why cricket was popular among “middle” class public had to to with its dress. While one needed to wear shorts to play other games which was considered infra dig by “middle” class Indians, cricket was played while wearing full pants, and so one felt like a sahab rather than a lowly individual while playing cricket. It was a “saala main to saahab ban gaya” kind of feeling for Indians who took to cricket.

Till mid 1970s, longer version of cricket, played in white dress, was the only form of cricket. Despite the popularity of cricket in India, Indian cricketers, with some honourable exceptions, were by and large quite mediocre at international level. The top players of England would not even tour India, and that gave India the opportunity to defeat a depleted English team in 1951-52, which was the first test win for India in test cricket. For next two decades, Indian registered some infrequent test wins, mostly against weak and / or new comer teams, viz Pakistan and new Zealand.

1971 to 1973 was a surprising purple patch for India when they managed to win three test series in a row, against West Indies in 1971, against England in 1971, and in home series against England during 1972-73. But this freak run against depleted sides was too good to last and India got soundly thrashed in their next test series against England in England during 1974.

During that disastrous tour, India played two limited overs match against England and lost tamely.

The first Limited overs world cup was played in England in 1975. Indian public as well as cricketers had no clue about the rules of the game. That was demonstrated rather dramatically during the opening match of that world cup. England piled on 334/ 4 in 60 overs. India in reply, crawled to 132/ 3. Gavaskar, opening the innings, scored 36 runs and remained not out ! He was perhaps trying to play out the overs and draw the match ! The fact that playing out overs and not scoring runs did not avoid defeat, unlike in test matches was not known to many.

In that world cup, India lost every match, except one which they played against a rag tag team of expatriates who represented a team called “East Africa”. East Africa was a collection of club level players from various African nations. India was able to record their only victory of the world cup against this team.

India did even worse in the next world cup in 1979. this time they lost all the matches. Their most humiliating defeat was against Sri Lanka, who at that time were an associate team, they were not yet a test team.

When the third world cup was held in England in 1983, then it was being considered yet another cakewalk for West indies, who had won both the world cups and whose team boasted of strong batting line up and a fearsome pace bowling quartet. They were so strong that other teams would write off their chances against West Indies and would concentrate on winning other matches.

Indian public as well as players were sure that it would be yet another forgettable world cup for them. Some cricketers had already planned to go visit USA on a sight seeing tour after the group stage matches.

This world cup had two groups of four teams each. In each group, the teams played each other twice. The top two teams qualified for the semi finals.

The first group match that India played was against West Indies ! Because of rain interruptions, this match was played over two days. India batting first scored a so so total of 262/8. Yashpal Sharma, with 89 runs, held the innings together where the second highest score was only 36 runs by Sandip Patil. West Indies, after a decent start, suddenly had a middle order collapse against the dibbly dobbly military medium bowling attack of Sandhu, Madanlal and Roger Binny who claimed 5 wickets among themselves. At 130/8 , West Indies were in big trouble, but their tail then began to wag valiantly. Just when it appeared like the tail were taking West Indies to a famous fighting win, Ravi Shashtri struck to claim the two vital tailender wickets. West Indies were bowled out for 228 ! It was a major upset. It was the first ever world cup defeat for West Indies, It was the first ever win for India against a test side (only the second win for them in world cup).

The next match for India was against Zimbabwe, an associate team, and India won comfortably.

Then normal world cup service seemed to resume for India. They lost their next two matches tamely, by 162 runs (against Australia) and 66 runs (against West Indies).

After two wins and two losses, India played Zimbabwe again. While batting first, India were in dire straights at 17/5. Overconfidence by the entire batting line up plus good use of swinging and bouncy conditions by Zimbabwean bowlers had brought India on its knees. The entire top order, viz Gavaskar (0) , Srikkanth (0) , Mohinder Amarnath (5), Sandeep Patil (1) and Yashpal Sharma (9) were blown away. Only bowlers and wicktkeeper were left, who were not known for any great batting feats at international level.

Kapildev (the captain) and Roger Binny took the score to 77, when Binny fell for a gritty 22. Next man Shashtri fell for one, and India was 78/ 7 ! Next man in was Madanlal, he scored 17 and fell when the score was 140.

At 140/8, it appeared as if India was going to maintain its past record of losing to an associate team in the world cup. Incidentally, Zimbabwe had already defeated Australia in this world cup in their very first world cup match.

Kirmani, the wicket keeper was definitely the last hope because Sandhu after him was a perfect rabbit with the bat. Kirmani held his end intact and concentrated on protecting his wicket. He faced 56 balls and scored 24 not out.

All this while, Kapildev was going alone sedately. Coming in at 9/4, he saw off the rampaging opening bowers Rawson and Curran, who bowled bulk of their quota of overs in their opening spell.

After initial jitters, Kapildev began to open up. He had already reached into late 70s when the eighth wicket fell for 140. The eight batsmen who fell had contributed just 55 runs among themselves.

After the fall of eighth wicket, Kapildev started to throw his bat around. The boundary was short on one side and longer on the other, but most Kapildev sixes (six of them) were straight sixes over long on boundary where the boundary was long. Kapildev struck six sixes and 16 fours. When Rawson and Curran returned to finish off their balance quota of overs, they were pulverised, being struck at over ten runs per over.

Kapildev did not give any real chances. He chanced his arms and his hits fell on no man’s land. It was Kapildev’s day out on that day of 18 june 1983.

India reached a respectable looking 266/ 8, a total that looked impossible for most parts of the innings.

While chasing, Zimbabwe were off to a decent start. their first wicket fell at 44, but after that, Indian dibbly dobbly trundlers (Sandhu, Madanlal, Binny and Mohinder Amarnath) did all the damage, with Kapildev taking the final wicket. India had won by 31 runs. It was not a case of India getting out of jail, rather it was like India escaping from the gallows !

Suddenly, India, who looked like going home, were in the reckoning for a semi final spot. They were second in the group with 12 points behind West Indies. Final group match of India was with Australia who were third in the group with 8 points and they too had a chance to pip Indians to the post by defeating india by a decent margin and going through on equal points but better run rate.

This India vs Australia match was a virtual quarter final. India batting first scored what looked like a poorish total of 247 all out in 55. 5 overs.

While chasing, Australia lost their first wicket cheaply with the score on 3. It was the prized wicket of Trevor Chappel who was man of the match in their previous encounter in the tournament. But the second wicket began to score runs and started to look threatening. Just when I and my hostel mates began to despair, the second wicket fell at 46, then the third at 48, fourth at 52, fifth at 52, sixth at 67 etc etc. The trundling trio of Sandhu (2 wickets), Madanlal (4 wickets) and Binny (4 wickets) skittled Australia out for 129 and took India to semifinal. It was something that was looking out of question just two days back.

The day when India stormed into the semi final was 20 june 1983. I was in my hostel where it was a tradition that birthday boy of the day would treat entire hostel with Mithai. That day happened to be my birthday, and the mithai celebration turned out to be quite sweet and memorable for all concerned.

The memory of semi final was a blur. Most Indian wins (except one) came when India batted first. But this time India bowled first and restricted England to 213. India concentrated to keeping wickets in hand. India emerged a comfortable winner in the end in a chase that they executed well, though they gave anxious moments to Indian fans, apparently showing no urgency to score quickly in the middle overs.

Three matches in five days, and three wins. India were in the final of the world cup !

Three days later, it was another sunday. The date was 25 june 1983. The day of the final.

Those were the days when only Delhi and perhaps Bombay had TV. Most part of India only had Radio. Listening to cricket match commentary in a hostel with lots of like minded hostelmates was quite an experience. Everyone had radios, but majority of people would throng together to listen to the commentary on one single radio. If I recall correctly, that used to be the radio of a person who was a cricket enthusiast and claimed to be related to Sharmila Tagore based on the resemblance of his teeth with that of Sharmila Tagore. 🙂

We listened to the commentary of Indian batting, but there was not much to cheer about. India kept losing wickets at regular intervals and India was bowled out for a paltry 183. Chasing 183 was no big deal for West Indies. They were set a similar target in the semifinal against Pakistan and they had romped home with ease, winning by eight wickets with 11.2 overs to spare.

The innings break coincided with our dinner break in the hostel. After dinner, people would traditionally go on an after dinner walk towards the golf course located in front of the hostel some half a km away. West Indies innings had started by then. India claimed an early wicket, but that only brought Viv Richards to the crease. He was going hammer and tongs at the Indian bowling. All of us were reconciled to the fact that it was going to be a one sided match, with west indies winning comfortably.

Then, against the run of play, we gathered that a wicket had fallen, and it was the wicket of Richards ! A big sigh of relief. But West Indies was not a one batsman team. they has a long and strong batting line up. Even their wicket keeper and tailenders could score runs. Moreover he target was not much. A few hefty blows from some batsman, and the match would be decided.

While listening to the commentary, more in hope than real expectation, we found the fourth and fifth wickets falling at the same score, and the wickets were that of Larry Gomes and Clive Lloyd. At 76/6 , Bacchus, another thorn in Indian flesh was gone. Both of the had scored big double centuries against india in India.

Dujon and Marshal gave anxious moments to Indian bowlers. Then Dujon fell to Mohinder Amarnath . 119 for 7 ! Then 8 for 124. Marshal gone, he too to Mohinder Amarnath.

Finally, West Indies resistance came to an end at 140. A 43 run victory for India. So the world had a new champion, an out rightly unexpected champion. If West Indies was to be dethroned, one would expect any team other than India to achieve it. But it turns out that it was the Indian David that slayed the West Indian Goliath.

West Indies had won the earlier two world cups. Their title wins did nothing much for world cricket. But this unexpected fluke win of India against all odds changed the game of cricket ! Indian interest in the game suddenly moved on to the next higher gear. So much so that Indians began to invest far more in cricket. The Indian industry, far smaller and modest then than what it is now, began to take much more interest in cricket. So much so that the world cup which was always held in England and always sponsored by Prudential Bank of England,, was held the next time in Indian subcontinent. This time it was sponsored by an up and coming Indian business house called Reliance ! In 1983, India was considered an also ran, but by 1987, India was a strong title contender ! It is another matter than India lost in the semifinal itself.

1983 win was a fluke no doubt. But he future results showed that Indian cricket had arrived at world stage after this fluke world cup win. Two years later, there was a World Championship of cricket in Australia. India, because of its defeat at home to England in 1984-85 was being considered as a no hoper. Kapildev, the world cup winner in 1983, had lost his captaincy and Gavaskar was made the captain for this WCC. Once again, defying all predictions, India won all their matches, remained undefeated and lifted the WCC title. So it was like Fluke title won 1983 was followed by its sequel, fluke title win II ! Later there would be some ODI tournament wins for India. India began to be counted among favourites in all subsequent world cups.

That is not all. Indians began to take interest in running the administration of ICC (international cricket council) which was till then a preserve of British stiff upper lip Lords who were running it in a manner that was hardly helping popularise the game. Indian businessman, such as Jagmohan Dalmia, took over the running of ICC, and improved the financial condition of ICC beyond all recognition. Today ICC is one of the richest sporting body. It is richer than most sporting bodies where Indians do not take interest. For instance, Rugby is a sport in which cricket playing nations like England, Australia and New Zealand take interest, but India does not. Resul ! International body of Rugby earns far less than ICC.

Much of ICC riches (around 70 % of it) today comes from India. That is how much money Indian market contributes to world cricket. It is this Indian market that has made BCCI one of the richest sporting body of a cuntry, richer than ICC in fact. Seeds of all these giant Oak trees were sown on this day 37 years ago, thanks to that miraculous fluke title win on 25 june 1983 !

25 june 1983 gave Indians immense self confidence that they too can do it. And as mentioned above, they used this win to advance their cricket. Cricket academies sprung up all over India, and some of them were by private companies. For instance, a pace academy came up in Madras, called MRF pace academy. Fans of other countries mocked it, but if today Indian pace attack is considered one of the best pace attacks, then remember, it is the result of three decades of investment on training of pace bowlers in different academies spread all over India. And that started only after this great fluke event that took place on 25 june 198.

This win inspired not just India, but its neighbours too, who may not admit it openly but they look up to India and get inspired. Interest in cricket picked up in these nations too. Pakistan won the world cup in 1992 and Sri Lanka announced its arrival in cricket scene by unexpectedly winning the world cup in 1996. Three world cup title wins out of four between 1983 and 1996 ! All this was made possible because of that first title win in 1983 ! Even Bangladesh became a cricket crazy nation and started to play international cricket from 2000.

Other sports too benefited in India. Indian Sportsmen in other sports too began to have more self belief. One great example is that of Indian chess. Just like India was supposedly considered incapable to producing fast bowlers till 1970s, India was also considerd incapable of producing Chess grandmasters. Those days, India had just two international masters, that was all. AICF (All India Chess Federation) began to invest more in organising chess tournaments inviting strong chess players from abroad. India saw its first Grand master in 1987 in the form of Vishwanathan Anand in 1987. Later on, he became World Champon as well. He inspired whole lot of Indians to take up Chess. Today India has some 60 off Chess Grandmasters and based on average ELO raking of the top ten chess players in the world, India is among top four strongest chess playing nation in the world !

Likewise one can add the example of Indian Badminton too.

To mark this major major achievement of Indian sport in general and Indian cricket inparticular, here is a cricket song from “Ferrari Ki Sawaari”(2012). This film was produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and directed by Rajesh Mapuskar for ‘Vinod Chopra films’. This movie had Sharman Joshi, Boman Irani, Ritvik Sahore, Seema Pahwa, Aakash Dabhade, Deepak Shirke, Paresh Rawal, Satyadeep Mishra, Achyut Potdar, Bhalchandra Kadam, Vijay Nikam, Nilesh Diwekar and others, with a special appearance by Vidhya Balan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. He not only discovered this cricket song, he sent its lyrics to me specially tomark the occasion of Indian world cup win on 25 june 1983 ! He certainly keeps an eagle eye on important days in the annals of Indian history !

The song is sung by Sonu Nigam, Aishwarya Nigam, Rana Mujumdar and Ashish. Satyanshu Singh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Preetam. Video is partial. One needs to listen to the audio to savour the full song.

Here it is ! Let us once again savour the great moment in the history of India that took place this day 37 years ago.

Blog Day:

4355 Post No. : 15674

Hello everyone,

So after what seems like ages, I’m back here with a post.
You can therefore assume it must be a special occasion.
A special anniversary, of an artiste or celebrity.

And it is.

Today is the birthday of the most important celebrity for this blog.
In fact, without this celebrity, the blog would not even have existed.
Yes, I’m talking about Atul himself.

Wish you a very very happy birthday, Atul.
Many happy returns of the day!

Now Atul might not consider himself a celebrity – but for us, he very much is.
I checked the dictionary definition of “celebrity” and there are two definitions
“a famous person, especially in entertainment or sport”
“the state of being well known”.

Atul satisfies BOTH conditions, in the context of this blog.
Ok, so he might not be a celeb in Bollywood yet, he might not make it to Page 3 or gossip columns (or maybe he does, I don’t know!). But if the dictionary definition is satisfied, I am too. 🙂

I don’t know where to start writing from, but I think a journey down memory lane might not be such a bad place to start. Those of you who have heard this before, kindly bear with me.

It all started in the first half of 2005. Probably around April or so.

In those days I was in Holland, and pretty crazy about cricket.
Not the right sport for that country, or the right country for that sport. 🙂
I got no TV coverage of cricket – and I was desperate to discuss cricket with like-minded cricket fans.

Luckily I had internet – so that was a life-saver in this context.

BBC in those days had a forum called BBC  TMS where one could discuss cricket. It was mostly Indians and Pakistanis, so you can imagine the level of discussion and amount of abuse. 🙂 Much of it was deliberately in Hindi, to avoid catching the eye of the forum moderators.

But after a while, they caught on to what was going on – and eventually the forum was shut down.

I then began hunting for other options.
I came across a Pakistani cricket forum which I joined.

It was there that I came across a person who went by the handle of “squarecut” (I think).

Now most of the discussion on the forum was obviously of modern/current cricket (Tendulkar, Wasim Akram etc) but this handle posted on topics of an earlier era – mostly the 1970s. And mostly talking about Indian cricketers of that era – like Vishwanath.

I could immediately relate to this. This was MY era, and I loved to discuss cricket of that era. So I immediately warmed to this person.

What was most remarkable was that his experiences were very similar to mine.
And his posts were also very interesting.

After a while, I got bored of that forum and continued my search for other options.

I came across a new forum, started by a few Indians in the wake of the BBC TMS shutdown.

I was initially a bit unsure of it, but then I saw a familiar handle.
The same “squarecut”.

So I joined that forum.
And for many years, Atul and I (and many other friends we made on that forum) spent many wonderful moments discussing cricket, and a lot of non-cricketing stuff, on that forum.

Anyway, long story – of How I Met Atul.
(Someone needs to make a Netflix series on this. :-))

Continuing (Season-2 of HIMA), the best thing about the forum was that though it was primarily a cricket forum, we could, and would, discuss anything under the sun.

Politics, movies, music, culture, anything.
And since there were people from around the world, it was quite interesting.

It didn’t take long for me to discover that Atul was keen on Hindi songs too.
Bas, phir kya tha?

We set up a section on the forum to discuss just this.
We called it Geetmala, where each person would pick up a topic (Atul picked up “trains” – anyone surprised?) and post 10 or so songs on it.

One day Atul announced that he had just started a blog.
He has always been someone who likes to experiment with things, so this was a sort of experiment for him too.
For nostalgia sake, I checked just now and found that blog still very much intact – it is on the blogroll of this blog.

One of the posts is http://squarecutsblog.blogspot.com/2008_06_01_archive.html .
Dated 1st June 2008.

Having now got some blogging experience, Atul decided to start a new blog where he would discuss one song a day.

And thus, on the 19th  of July 2008, a first post on this “one song a day” blog appeared.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

I’m sorry for this rather elaborate throwback to another era, but since it is Atul’s birthday today, I couldn’t help reminiscing how we first got to know each other.

And oh, we did manage to meet once too.

When Atul was posted in Nagpur, I made a trip to Nagpur to meet him and a common friend (from the cricket forum). My only trip to Nagpur ever.

It was wonderful meeting Atul, and having dinner with him.
We discussed cricket of the 70s, songs and of course this blog.

There are other memories too.
Atul and his special relationship with Bangladesh cricket, for example. 🙂

No mention of Atul would be complete without talking about Atulisms. 🙂

This is a term I coined to refer to Atul’s unique one-liners.

For example, on his first blog referred to above, in an August 2008 piece, he says “Knowing fully well that Indian authorities are not likely to exert themselves in such strenuous tasks like thinking, planning, etc, I have done all the hard work for them.” 🙂

I can go on and on, but I think readers might already be impatient about the length of this post.

So I’m going to go straight to the song now.

As usual, I owe this song to Avinashji. He was in fact the person who requested me to write a post for this occasion, and gave me a choice of a few songs to pick from.

I picked this one – Avinashji has provided the lyrics.

It is a multiple version song from the film ‘Jeevan Rekha’ (1974).

Some more details about the film, provided to me by Avinashji.

“Jeewan Rekhaa-1974” was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for ‘Nanak Films, Bombay’. It has Pran, Farida Jalal, Tabrez, Jalal Agha, Keshto Mukherjee, Chandrashekhar, Asit Sen, Aparna Choudhari, Vikrant, Jagdish Raj, Ravish Dhillon, Shetty, K.N.Singh, Ajit, Raj Rani, Rajni Bala, Pravin Pal, Polson, Ramlal, Sudarshan Sharma, Kirti Kumar, Kamaldeep, Dev Sharma, Surendra Kohli, Thakur Chhabra, Vikas Bali, Ashok Seth, Prince Shakil, Sagar, Rashid Khan, Master Vijay and others. Manmohan and Fariyal make special appearance in this movie.

This movie has as many as seven songs (including one multiple version song being presented today).
Three lyricist Dev Kohli (four songs), Anjaan (two songs) and Kafil Azar (one song) wrote the lyrics for this movie.
Music was composed by two music directors Suman Raj – three songs and Jagdish J- four songs.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Mukesh and Chandrani Mukherjee had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.07.1974.

Male version of this song is sung by Manna Dey, the female version by Chandrani Mukherjee.

I vaguely seem to remember a film by this name, but I don’t recall hearing this song before.

When Avinashji sent me the video(s) and I listened to the song, I instantly fell in love with it.

It’s a cheerful and positive song – and I think quite fitting for this occasion – “Geet Hai Ye Zindagi, Gungunaate Aur Gaate Chale Chalo, Chale Chalo”.

Doesn’t this just describe what Atul has been doing with this blog? It seems just perfect for Atul on his birthday. 🙂

So once again, wish you a very happy birthday, Atul. I hope you like this choice of song.

Just want to mention that the composer Jagdish is a totally new name for me. If anyone knows more about him, kindly enlighten me.

And Atul, if I’ve got any facts wrong in this post (my memory isn’t very good) , please let me know. 🙂

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Even this one – you might say. Aah yes, even this one. 🙂

This song from ‘Mahal’ in 1949, probably has the most recognized prelude across the entire history of Hindi Film Song. It has become the signature song of the earlier decades of Hindi cinema. No representative selection of Lata ji’s songs would ever be considered complete without it.

The all too familiar picturization – the girl on the swing then the empty swing, the lonely boat in the river, the stunningly beautiful features of Kamini (Madhubala) – the song and its images are now an unforgettable montage. There is a whole traditional lore that now accompanies this song, which has achieved a cult status over the decades.

‘Kadambari’ from 1975, is delicate love story of young hearts which has some unconventional twists to it. The film is based on the novel ‘Dharti Sagar te Sippiyan’ written by Amrita Pritam. The film is produced under the banner of Madhu Creation Picture Pvt Ltd, Bombay and is directed by HK Verma. The star cast lis listed as Shabana Azmi, Vijay Arora, Arpana Choudhary, Jeet Surendra, Ajeet Singh, Mona, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, and V Gopal etc.

The film has two songs. One is written by Amrita Pritam herself –“Ambar Ki Ek Paak Suraahi, Baadal Ka Ek Jaam Uthaakar”, composed by Ustad Vilayat Khan and sung by Asha Bhosle, and the second one is “Kyon Hum Tum Rahen Akele”, written by Geetanjali Singh and is composed and sung by Ajeet Singh.

As per the official listings, that is all the songs in this film. In fact both the songs are already present on our blog and in that sense the film is already yippeee’d.

But wait, here is the surprise that was mentioned in a message early morning today. The film carries this iconic song – a repeat version, which in of itself, has a significant importance. The song is not reused in its original form. It has been re-recorded in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurty, and reused in this film. The important point here is that this is the debut recording of a film song by Kavita Krishnamurty in Hindi films – her first song. And she gets to re-render this classic masterpiece.

The song appears in the film in two parts. One stanza is performed close to the beginning of the film. The occasion is the birthday party of Chetna (Shabana Azmi). A very close and dear friend, Amit (Vijay Arora) is still awaited to join. In this mood, Chetna sings one stanza of this song – “Deepak Bagair Kaise Parwaane Jal Rahe Hain“.

The second stanza – “Bhatki Huyi Jawaani. . .” appears sometime before the end of the film. This stanza appears in the background. The situation is that a chance meeting happens between Chetna and Sheetal (Aparna Chaudhry) after many years. Both are in passing through difficult time in life, both are single and both are awaiting the men they love to return to them. Sheetal is in love with Sudhir (Jeet Surendra), who is the brother of Chetna.

As Chetna departs from Sheetal’s home, the song starts to play, with the visual cutting back and forth between Sheetal at home, with paintbrush and canvas, and Chetna in a three wheeler heading back to her home. “Maanjhi Bagair Naiya Saahil Ko Dhoondhti Hai” – the two friends are like directionless boats at sea, searching for the shores.

A brief summary of the storyline,

Chetna and Amit are childhood friends, and are in love. Amit has a past that he once reveals to Chetna – that he is an illegitimate child. His mother was a victim of a violent assault, and the man responsible neither did own up, nor accepted the lady. Amit’s mother (Chand Usmani) single handedly brings up Amit and educates him to be a doctor. Amit reveals that he has such a reverence for his mother that he has taken a vow never to marry, not sure how the prospective addition to the family would treat his mother and whether she would understand the painful past in the family.

To Chetna it becomes clear that Amit will not marry. She is heartbroken, but then she promises herself she will never pursue him for matrimony. An interlude happens in between, and Chetna is now carrying Amit’s child. She hides this fact from everyone, including Amit, moves to Bombay from Delhi on the pretext of a job, stays there for a couple of years, has the child and then returns home with a story about an unfortunate family where the parents passed away leaving behind this newborn child. So she has adopted the child.

The parallel love saga of Sheetal and Sudhir is also not working out well, and the two are not seeing each other. Both are in pain, but both are restraining. Chetna meets with Sheetal and talks with her to coax her back and rebuild the relationship with Sudhir.

In the meantime, Chetna and Amit are also back to their normal exchanges. Amit’s mother, who has always liked Chetna, starts to help with taking care of the child. Some observations, some exchanges, something about the child and Amit’s mother comes to realize that the child’s father is Amit, her son. Situations progress to an amiable juncture where this fact gets revealed and is accepted by everybody. Both couples are back together once again.

It is a sensitively handled drama of love. There are no emotional overplays in the film. Every situation is underplayed and intelligently handled. Love stories are not always dependent on villains and stern parents to play out their saga. In some cases, it is the protagonists themselves who provide the interesting and unexpected turns to the story. ‘Kadambari’ is one such story.

The reuse of the two stanzas of this song are also very imaginative and very appropriately linked into the specific situations and story flow.

And yes, by the way, as per the ten year challenge chart published early morning today, ‘Kadambari’ made its debut 10 years ago today. Quite appropriately, we bring on this post, and add the repeat song to the list of songs of this film on our blog. The song has been suggested to me by Dear Avinash ji, who has also sent us both the set of lyrics – in Hindi and English.

A mysterious and dreary night of a palace from 1949 got transformed into a birthday party at a middle class home in Delhi in 1975. Watch, listen and enjoy.

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that I knew little about when I was growing up. I watched this movie in 1978 when my went to college and my movie watching spree began with a vengeance. Those days, I only liked “new” movies and songs and scoffed at “old” movies and songs. But I had heard about old movies, so I would go and watch them when no “new” movie was there for me to watch. The old movies tended to run to empty house and so buying tickets for these movies was not a problem. I wondered if a day will come in future when one would be able to watch “new” movies with the same ease, without needing to queue up and black marketeers having a field day. Believe it or not, today we are actually in that situation where one can buy tickets of even brand new movies without needing to form a queue in the movie hall.

I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in a movie hall called Ratan Talkies. I knew that it was an old movie but still I mustered up enough tolerance within me and went to watch the movie. I was a few minutes late and the movie had already started. When I found that the movie had Raj Kumar (tragedy Kumar) and Meena Kumari (tragedy queen), I wondered if I had made a mistake and I would have to spend a misery filled three hours in the hall. But as soon as the songs of the movie began, I as well as others exclaimed-“arre ye gaana is film ka hai !”. Songs kept coming one after another, with the same collective response from the movie watchers.

Seeing that I had become a regular movie watcher only in that year, I had a lot of catching up to do. I was not aware about many of the actors that were there in the movie. Today, when I look back at the starcast of “Kaajal”(1965), I realise that it was full of big name actors. But when I was watching the movie at that time, I could identify only Raj Kumar, Meena Kumari and Dharmendra, aand that was all !

The movie had eleven songs in it. As many as ten songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

I came to know thanks to some whatsapp messages that today (12 june) is the birthday of Padmini (12 june 1932-24 September 2006). When I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in the movie hall. I had no clue about her. I did not even know that the actress seen in a few songs in the movie was Padmini.

On the occasion of Padmini’s birth anniversary, here is the eleventh and final song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as an archtypical get together song in a palatial home where people gather and politely watch a lady singing (while holding a sitar) and another lady dancing. In this song, Meena Kumari lip syncs while Padmini dances. Look at the people watching the performance. During those days, I did not even recognise Durga Khote !

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that was worth watching for its songs. Today, I would go to the extent of saying that only the songs of the movie must be watched. The story is too melodramatic for me. 🙂

Many decades later (after I began this blog), I came to know that Padmini had two more sisters and they too were dancing stars like her, and that together they were known as Travancore sisters.

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

With this song, songs of “Kaajal”(1965) are now fully represented in the blog and this movie joins the list of movies that are YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

I know of a few people who have two birthdays each year. This can be explained as an adjustment for the sake of getting admission in schools which have a condition that the child should have completed 3½ when getting admitted to pre-school, and/or 5½ when the child starts class one in June. June is the time when the academic sessions begin in India and this rule has been in place for ages. So I have two cases for this in my family – my mother’s birth year was changed to comply with admission requirements.

June 1st is a special date for an Atulite who loves to travel. He has traveled to places which offer a lot of adventure and camping attractions. He has chronicled his travel experiences in www.sadanandsafar.blogspot.com.

It is our Sadanand ji’s birthday, a special birthday today. I shall not mention his age as I know him to be rather young at heart – his travels and treks are a testimony to that.

Currently his journey is discovering songs which we have hitherto not heard, Hindi songs which are from Bengali films. This series has given us some great songs. He has a lot of patience to dig out authentic and accurate information from varied sources like past issues of the magazine ‘Film India’ and other sites. He is painstakingly trying to find links. All the best to him in this – may we get more of the same. Here I will admit that his series has made me look out for songs in south Indian movies and a link that our In-house encyclopedia sent me has started that journey for me. I hope that I am able to sustain myself for as long as Sadanandji who has crossed 600 posts on the blog of which 28 posts were of Hindi songs in Bangla films. That is indeed a lot of rummaging through available online and offline material.

He has one more love – pointed out to me by our Avinash ji, whom I brain-stormed with before I sat to write this post. He loves poetry or shaayari as it is called. Avinash ji drew my attention towards Sadanandji’s love for Gopal Das Neeraj. So today we will have a song penned by Neeraj.

I just realized that I should explain my opening paragraph.

Since morning we have been wishing Sadanand ji through WhatsApp and he graciously thanked everyone but added “Thanks for wishing me on my official birthday. My actual birthday is **/07/****” . So that means we get to wish him one more time – ‘duguna wishes’. I am sure that this change in date of birth may have happened at the point of school admissions, am I right Sadanand ji ? As one of my many acquaintances loves to say – “same case as my mother”.

Now I shall move to the song for which I must thank Avinash ji; he has provided me the lyrics in both English and Devanagari (his forte). He also provided me the link to the audio and video and I realized why he suggested this song from “Gunaah” (1993).

I think I have seen this movie ages ago on television and this movie had Sunny Deol, Dimple Kapadia, Sumeet Saigal, Anjana Mumtaz, Shammi, Manohar Singh, Akash Khurana, Raza Murad, Avtar Gill  etc. It was the story of a young journalist (Sunny Deol) who is found wounded on the shores of Goa, treated by Dr. Joe D’Costa (Manohar Singh). He suffers from amnesia and then remembers details about himself, his life etc after five long years. He recollects that he was instrumental in the downfall of an upright politician and had a girl friend etc. Then the movie makes its way through the usual lanes of finding the real-culprits. The movie was directed by Mahesh Bhatt had songs written by Neeraj and Payam Saeedi (don’t know anything about this person) and Rajesh Roshan was the music director.

Today’s song starts on the seashore, in a Goan village setting with choreographer Ganesh Acharya (don’t know if he was the choreographer for this movie) lip-syncing to Manhar Udhas and we see Manohar Singh urging Sunny Deol to join the fun. I am unable to identify the girl (she looks very familiar) who is lip syncing to Sadhana Sargam.

Wishing Sadanand ji once again a musical day with family and remember your fellow Atulites when you cut the cake. 😉
