#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

—————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 63# Khayyam Saab’s 91st birth anniversary
———————————————–—————————

Today 18th February 2018 (born on 18th February 1927) is the Ninety-first birth anniversary of Mohammed Zahur “Khayyam” Hashmi Saab, better known as Khayyam Saab to all of us.

On this occasion here is a rare song from the movie ‘Meena Kumari Ki Amar Kahaani-1979’. Music of this film was composed by Khayyam Saab.

‘Meena Kumari Ki Amar Kahaani – 1979’ was directed by Sohrab Modi for ‘Shaili Films, Bombay’. It had Dolly (as ‘Meena Kumari’), Bharat Bhushan, Madhu Malini, Meena Irani, Sunita Irani, Sunita Dheer, Twinkle, Jayshree T., Bandini, Jagdeep, Keshto Mukherjee, Ratna, Javed Khan, Bina Baba, Zery, Kedar Sehgal, Baby Parveen, and Sona (as ‘Madhubala’).

Lyrics of this film were by Afzal Shadab (all songs) and Music was composed by Khayyam Saab.

As per information available in HFGK this film had two songs. (However as mentioned in HFGK this film also included some dialogues and songs from some of the films of Meena Kumari viz. Azad’1955, Sharda’1957, Chirag Kahaan Roshni Kahaan’1959, Ghazal’1964, Chandan Ka Palna’1967 and Pakeezah’1971).

This film was based on Meena Kumari’s life and was passed by censor board on 28.11.1979.
I am neither much aware about this movie nor I have watched it, so I can not say much about this movie and its box office performance.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

I was quite in dilemma while deciding a song for today’s occasion, because there are still many many beautiful gems composed by Khayyam Saab that are yet to be posted on the blog here.

However, while going through the list of movies for which Khayyam Saab has composed music, I find that this is the only movie from the decade of 1971-1980 that is yet to make an entry on the blog. So today we get introduced to this movie on the blog.

During 1971-1980 we have the following movies of which the music was composed by Khayyam Saab;

The actresses Dolly and Sona who played the role of Meena Kumari and Madhubala in the film are also seen in the picturization of this song with others.

The other song is a duet sung by Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing Khayyam Saab, a ‘Very Happy Birthday’ today and a ‘healthy and peaceful’ life ahead, let us now enjoy this song!!!


Song-Wafaa e ishq mein khoye jahaan milte hain (Meena Kumari Ki Amar Kahaani)(1979) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Afzal Shadab, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics

Jo udaatey thhe laakhon ki neendein
Ab wo zere zameen so gaye
Haay mitti ki aagosh mein
Kaise kaise haseen so gaye

Khoye jahaan milte hain
Wafaa e ishq mein
Khoye jahaan milte hain
Bhatakti rooh ke ae ae ae
Bhatakti rooh ke
Aksar nishaan miltey hain aen
Wafaa e ishq mein
Khoye jahaan milte hain

Wo badnaseeb jo
Duniya se naamuraad gaye
Wafaa ke maare huye

Nazar se chhupke
wo hi meharbaan miltey hain
Bhatakti rooh ke ae ae ae
Bhatakti rooh ke
Aksar nishaan miltey hain ae
Wafaa e ishq mein
Khoye jahaan milte hain

Jo baazi haar gaye hain

Qaraar unko nahin milta
Apni jannat mein
Sukoon e dil ke liye
Bezubaan miltey hain
Bhatakti rooh ke ae ae ae
Bhatakti rooh ke
Aksar nishaan miltey hain ae
Wafaa e ishq mein
Khoye jahaan milte hain

Hawaa mein udtaa huaa

जो उड़ाते थे लाखों की नींदें

Missing Films of 1960s – 42
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

IS Johar had a lead of three years over Raj Kapoor. His film ‘Mera Naam Johar’, released in 1967, preceded the great showman’s masterpiece ‘Mera Naam Joker’ which came in 1970. It is a matter of conjecture now, as to who inspired whom. 🙂

So this film is the debut film for today. IS Johar was going very strong, and travelling to many destinations  in the 1960s. In 1965 we saw him in ‘Goa’ with Memood. In 1966, he travelled to ‘Kashmir’. Then in 1967, along with the proclamation that his name is ‘Johar’, he also appeared in ‘Bombay’. His next trip was somewhat delayed, considered that he travelled overseas to ‘Hong Kong’ in 1971, once again in Mehmood’s company.

The film is produced under the banner of Sudershan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Saran Kant. Besides himself in lead role, other members of the cast include Sonia Sahni, Dhoomal, Aruna Irani, Raj Mehra and Tiwari amongst others. The film has 6 songs listed. Music is from the mind of Usha Khanna. Two songwriters are listed – Asad Bhopali and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, only three of the songs have a specific lyricist identified. For this song, the lyricist name has not been identified. This song is written by Qamar Sb. (This information is actually available in the addenda to the volume IV of Geet Kosh, which I missed referring to earlier.)

The song is delivered in a very comical situation. And the songwriter has written some very catchy lines to match the situation. Apparently it seems that IS Johar and Sonia Sahni have to make a getaway from the clutches of the villain’s gangsters, who are blocking the roads even, and screening the people coming and going. And the way out found by the hero is something that can happen only in IS Johar films. They form a funeral procession, and they have Sonia Sahni acting like a dead body, being carried in the traditional funerary ‘takht’ on the shoulders of a group of people. IS Johar, with his head tonsured and wearing only a dhoti, seems to be the epitome of the prime mourner, carrying the traditional fire in a ‘matka’.

He leads the singing, with this song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor. The group of people accompanying him includes people who are playing the ‘dholak’ and ‘khartaal’ etc. The procession meets the villain’s henchmen in a sort of a road block. And IS Johar is singing and telling the entire real story – that the dead body is  actually ‘zinda’ (alive), and that they are making good an escape with no one the wiser.

The play acting is so convincing that the henchmen who are leading this group of baddies, actually come forward and shoulder the funerary carriage for some distance, even singing along with the group. A most hilarious situation contrived by the director, and so brazenly and blatantly executed by IS Johar and company. IS Johar looks so convincing in his role as a fake mourner, and as he sings along the lines in which he is indicating the truth of the situation, only if someone would listen ‘between the words’. . . – “Jaane Waala Chala Hai Dekho Rok Sakey Na Koi” 🙂

See, listen and enjoy.

Blog Day : 3462 Post No. : 13894

Today is the eighty fourth birth anniversary (9 Jan 1934 – 27 Sep 2008) of singer Mahendra Kapoor. On this occasion today, I present this lovely and haunting song from the 1966 film ‘Naag Mandir’ here on our blog. This song has two versions one sung by Mahendra Kapoor and another sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

‘Naag Mandir’ was directed by Shantilal Soni for Mayurkala Pictures, Bombay. The star cast was led by Mahipal, Vijaya Choudhry and included Indira and BM Vyas.

This movie has six songs, including one multiple version song. Songs for this movie are written by three songwriters – Shiv Kumar ‘Saroj’, Bharat Vyas and Asad Bhopali. This song is written by Bharat Vyas. Music for this movie is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi have given their voices to the songs in this movie. So far three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Not much other information about this movie is either mentioned in HFGK Vol IV or available on other sources.

I became aware of this song around end-eighties, when I started collecting cassettes and also getting compilations of various singers recorded on blank (TDK/Sony) cassettes. In this endeavor I got recorded the Mahendra Kapoor songs on 14.10.1991 and since then this song is there in my collection. I like this song very much and sometimes it automatically come to my lips and I broke into humming it.

When I checked on the blog, I was surprised to note that this was still to be posted. Also, it was only few weeks back that I discovered that this song also has a female version and that too sung by Lata Mangeshkar. There is some difference in the lyrics. Both versions have one common stanza and one different stanza.

Coming back to the songs of Mahendra Kapoor I would like to mention that I like many of his songs very very much. And as and when I have got the opportunity to share his songs I have tried to get them posted on this blog. I am not going into the biographical details of Mahendra Kapoor and the list of his songs in this post today. I will just stop here and leave you with this song to enjoy today remembering him, and his contribution to Hindi Film Music.

“Johar in Bombay” (1967) was directed by Shantilal Soni for Thakkar Pictures, Bombay. The movie had I S Johar, Sonia Sahni, K N Singh, Rajendranath, Madan Puri, Polson, Jeevankala etc in it.

This movie was a slapstick comedy where I S Johar and Rajendranath fumble their ways to glorious feats like defeating the nefarious designs of evil scientists with the help of Alladin’s jinn thanks to Alladin’s lamp that I S Johar accidentally comes across in his antique shop.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog. All of them were covered in 2011. After a gap of over seven years, here is the next song from “Johar in Bombay” (1967) to appear in the blog. This song is a comedy song which is a parody of some popular songs of that era.

Mahendra Kapoor is the singer. The lyricist of the song is not known. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is picturised in the usual light hearted manner on I S Johar and others, meant to appeal mainly to low brow audiences. 🙂


Song-Meri pyaari pyaari soorat ko kisi ki chhuri na lage (Johar in Bombay)(1967) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

meri pyaari pyaari soorat ko
kisi ki chhuri na lage
chashme baddur
chhuriyon ko chhupa lo bakshe mein
police ki nazar na lage
chashme baddur

yoon na peechhe phira karo
dhandha koi kiya karo
yoon na peechhe phira karo
dhandha koi kiya karo
tumse badhkar kaanyiyaan hoon main
chaal samajh kar chala karo
meri pyaari pyaari soorat ko
kisi ki chhuri na lage
chashme baddur

zara saamne to aao pagle
chhup chhup ladne mein kya raaz hai
zara main bhi to dekhoon zaalima
tu kaisa teerandaaj hai
zara saamne to aao pagle

bahaaron aag barsaao
koi bandook laaya hai
koi dambook laaya hai
o hunter
maut ban jaao
koi bandook laaya hai
koi dambook laaya hai
giro ae pattharon
in dusmanon ke kaale haathon par
chalo ae goliyon
kambakht gaddaaron ke seenon par
bahaaron aag barsaao
koi bandook laaya hai
koi dambook laaya hai

yaahoo
yaahoo
chaahe koi mujhe jungli kahe
kehne do ji kehta rahe
hum jang ke toofaanon mein gire hain
hum tang karenge
chaahe koi mujhe jungli kahe
yaahoo
yaahoo
yaahoo
yaahoo

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 58 # Remembering Singer-Poet – Kavi Pradeep #
———————————————–—————————————————-

Today (11th December, 2017 is the nineteenth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.02.1915 – 11.12.1998) of Ramchandra Narayanji Dwivedi whom we fondly remember and whose name has been engraved in the history of Indian Cinema and Poetry as Kavi Pradeep.

On this occasion here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa-1975” which is penned by Kavi Pradeep (he has written all the six songs for this movie) and also lent his voice to the background version of this (today’s) song in the movie.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma.
It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’.

Bharat Bhushan makes an ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The seventies was a very special decade for Hindi movies. It saw the emergence of the first superstar of the industry and later on the rise of an angry young man on screen. Action films, formula films, multi starrer movies came to the fore in this decade. Story presentation and action underwent changes from the earlier decades. Towards the end of the decade, we found disco music entering in Hindi film music in a big way.

This decade also saw one of the greatest mythological hit of all times viz. ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ in 1975.

Released in the same year as Sholay, this was a low budget movie but later on created records for collection. I have blurred memories about tales that many women started ‘santoshi maata vrat’ after watching this movie.

All the songs of this movie were very popular. Today’s song in particular holds a special nostalgic value for me.

I was just above 7 years old at that time. I remember that we watched both Sholay and Jai Santoshi Maa on the same day at Akola. I remember the name of the theatres. ‘Shalini’ talkies, which had that typical theatre like built inside and ‘Manek’ talkies – one of the old in the city and still maintained well and spacious.

Today when I checked the release dates of both these movies, I find that “Jai Santoshi Maa” was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and “Sholay” was passed by Censor Board on 12.08.1975).

The song being presented today has two versions. One version is sung by Kavi Pradeep and the other by Mahendra Kapoor with chorus in both of them. music is given by C. Arjun and lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep ji.

This song, oozing with devotion and spirituality has a calming effect on me and it puts me at peace. No wonder that this is a song that I like to listen to again and again.

(Note: – In HFGK Vol-V this song is mentioned as appearing at number two and six, which normally should be in the order of appearing of the songs in the movie. However, I would like to mention here that this needs to be corrected in HFGK as in the movie this song appears at number one and two respectively in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Kavi Pradeep.

HFGK mentions the song ‘main to aarti utaaroon re’ at number one while in the movie it comes at number number five. And, at number six is the last song of the movie ‘madad karo he… madad karo santoshi maata’).

Let us now listen to this wonderful song …

Feroze Khan – a name that forever spells flamboyance and style. Almost sounding like the Kingdom of the Pathaan. A popular and likeable persona who had to face near disapproval as a leading man, till quite many years into his career.

Remembering Feroze Khan on his 78th anniversary of birth today (25th September).

One more film to add to the list. Today’s Yippeee film is ‘Hamaare Gham Se Mat Khelo’ from 1967. Being a film of relatively recent vintage, I am surprised that I am not able to find this song online. This song was heard fairly frequently on the radio in those days, but it seems to have dropped out of the collective memory.
