Om Prakash Chibber- better known as Om Prakash- was an actor who was seen mainly in character roles, in movies of the late 1950s till the very end of his career i.e. till 1994, “Bhai No 1” that released in 2000 came two years after his passing. He was only 78 at the time of his death.

But telling Om Prakash was a character actor is wrong, just because I saw him first as Sharmila Tagore’s ‘jijaji’ in the hilarious, Hrishikesh Mukherjee directed “Chupke Chupke” in 1975 (I am sure this is a movie I first watched on Doordarshan). He was adorable in this song. Similarly I saw him as Ramlal – father to Mehmood, Kalpana and Rajasree- in “Pyar Kiye Jaa” (again on DD). He was amazing through that film and this scene from “Pyar kiye jaa” (1966) was a standout. There are hundreds of such scenes that I can list out here as an example of what an outstanding actor this artiste was.

He began his career as a radio broadcaster in All India Radio in 1937. I have seen a biographical video somewhere on YouTube which talks of his journey from radio to films and how Dalsukh Pancholi gave him his first break in films in the 1944 release “Daasi” after which he was a regular in Hindi films. Here I should apologize for my ignorance, as to whether Om Prakashji has ever played a hero in any of his films. I do know that his was the central character in many movies where a Sanjay Khan or a Navin Nischol (just to give 2 examples) were the romantic lead as in “Das Lakh” or “Buddha Mil Gaya” . Can anyone forget the characters he played in “Namak Halal”, “Sharaabi”, “Zanjeer”, “Loafer”, “Howrah Bridge”, ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne”, “Azaad”, and and and hundreds of others.

He may have had songs filmed on him in the initial years of his career but the following songs have stayed in my mind

Song Movie (Year) Date of post in the blog
Iint ki dukki paan ka ikka Howrah Bridge (1958) 5 February 2009
Oy buddho lambo lambo Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 3 march 2009
Aayo kahaan se ghanshyam Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 12 may 2009
Teri patli kamar teri baali umar Dus Laakh (1966) 31 October 2012
Ajab teri kaareegari re kartaar Dus Laakh (1966) 7 September 2013
Suno re saadho ye sansaaram ultam paltam ho gaya Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi (1970) 21 February 2018

Meri patni mujhe sataati hai is a song that I discovered today.

He has had Manna Dey, Mohd. Rafi, Mahendra Kapoor etc giving playback for him. Today we see him singing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice, a song written by Aziz Kashmiri and tuned by Shankar Jaikishan.

“International Crook” (1974) was a movie produced and directed by Pachhi who also played the role of Jamal Pasha in that movie. I have read in some post, in our blog, that Pachhi was Om Prakash’s brother, and when (by chance) I saw the movie recently I was 100% sure (for sometime at least) that Omji was playing a double role. Then it occurred to me that this person had a huge paunch and hence cannot be Om Prakashji.

“International Crook” had six songs of which the blog has this song which was Avinashji’s contribution on the occasion of Dharmendra’s 85th birthday. Today’s song is to recall Om Prakashji, it is 24 years since he left this mortal world.


Song-Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna (International Crook)(1974) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Aziz Kashmiri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna

badhti dekhi aazaad se
saath saath mehangaai
arre sabko milkar rote dekha
kya dhobi kya naai
o mat ro mere laala
nahin to main bhi ro doonga

aur is darr ke maare maine
aur is darr ke maare maine
shaadi nahin karaai
shaadi nahin karaai

o Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna
bachna chorbaazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
o shreeman
o mister
tu jaldi bane manister
Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna

o praaji jaago
wo lut jaayega desh wo jiske
lut jaayega desh wo jiske
so jaayen pehredaar

“Naseehat”(1967) was produced by Dara Singh (Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati , Mohan Choti, etc.

Memsaab, when she was active in her blogging, had done a detailed review of this movie in her characteristic inimitable style.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here are their details:-

Blog post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
2226 Zara dekhiye meri saadgi 9 December 2009 Mahendra Kapoor
5305 Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo 16 January 2012 Asha Bhonsle
13739 Mujhko deewaana na kar 18 November 2017 Asha Bhonsle
16771 Aankhon se ishaara karke hamen 16 January 2022 Asha Bhonsle
16798 Teri aankhon ne in aankhon se jo baat kahi 28 January 2022 Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot, Mahendra Kapoor

Seeing that O P Nayyar was the music director, he had composed some listing music. He tended to have one male singer and one female singer who would sing for all the characters of the movie. The female singer of the movie, namely Asha Bhonsle, is thus used to give playback to the heroine REajshree (south) is three songs. In one song, she gives playback to Helen. In another song, (where Kamal Barot is another female singer), Asha Bhonsle gives playback to Helen clone, namely Madhumati.

If Asha Bhonsle was the female playback singer of choice for O P Nayyar, Rafi was his male playback singer of choice. But those days he had a falling off with Rafi, so he was forced to use another voice, namely Mahendra Kapoor for his male playback singing. This movie is one such movie.

Here is thew sixth and final song of “Naseehat”(1967) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is of course by O P Nayyar.

Mahendra Kapoor had three songs in this movie. He had given playback for three different actors in these three songs.

In the song under discussion, Mahendra Kapoor givbes playback for Mohan Choti, who is seen wooing a lady whom I am unable to identify. This song appears to be part of comic side plot where another comedian pair are likewise seen running around trees in the recommended way of carrying out romance in Hindi movies of those days.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, all the songs of “Naseehat”(1967) have been covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Ya ke tum pe meri jaan shabaab aa gaya (Naseehat)(1967) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

yaa yaa yaa
o ya ke tum par meri jaan shabaab aa gaya
ya ke phir mere marne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tum par meri jaan shabaab aa gaya
ya ke phir mere marne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tumko main apni khushi maan loon
ya ke phir aah bharne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tum par r

ye nazaare
ye nazaare jo mujhko deewana karen
hain bahaaron mein aise nazaare kahaan
door ho dil se dil ka andhera kabhi
aasamaanon mein aise sitaare kahaan
ya meri ee
ya meri aarzuon ki kaliyaan khilin
ya tumhaare sanwarne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tum par meri jaan shabaab aa gaya
ya ke phir mere marne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tum par

tumko dekha
tumko dekha
kadam dagmagaane lage
aisi masti fazaaon mein milti nahin
in mahakte huye gesuon ki kasam
aisi khushboo hawaaon mein milti nahin
ya ke dooba aa
ya ke dooba hua hoon main jazbaat mein
ya tumhaare ubharne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tum par meri jaan shabaab aa gaya
ya ke phir mere marne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tumko main apni khushi maan loon
ya ke phir aah bharne ke din aa gaye
ya ke tum par r

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 160 # Balidaan -1971#
———————————————–————

Today 26th Janunary’2022 is the seventy-third Republic Day of our country India.

On this day we celebrate our ‘republic’ and pay tributes to all who fought for the freedom of our country. It is because of them that we the ‘new generations’ enjoy the ‘fruits of freedom’.

On this blog we celebrate this day by listening to patriotic songs as well as songs praising our motherland.
Films on patriotic themes and on the biographies of great martyrs have been made from time to time. Such films are watched with equal enthusiasm all over. There is a long list of films made on patriotic themes, biographies of great leaders, freedom fighters and martyrs. Such movies serves to remind us of the great culture, rich heritage, and diverse traditions of our country.

We as Indians use the great resources, nature, and flora and fauna of this land. Our country has different seasons which helps in growing crops and feeding the people. Ours is the country bestowed with rich treasures of nature.

Therefore, we do have a collective responsibility to take care of our motherland which has given us so much to sustain our lives. It is our duty to protect the honour of our motherland. It is our duty to express our gratitude towards our ‘Matru Bhoomi’.

Today I am presenting a song which expresses the above mentioned sentiments.

This song is from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Balidaan’.

“Balidaan-1971” was directed by Ravi Tandon for ‘Verma Films Enterprises, Bombay’.It was produced by Aroon Varma and Darshan. It had Saira Banu, Manoj Kumar, Dev Kumar, Bharat Bhushan, Manmohan, Poornima, Manmohan, Anwar Hussain, Randhir, Asit Sen, Polsan, Heeralal, Janki Das, Bhushan Tiwari, Devraj, Gulab Singh, Kirti Kumar, Ranveer Raj, Om Sahni, Mahesh Raj, and Bindu and others.

This movie introduced Devyani.

Story of this movie was written by Balkrishna Mouj. Editing of this movie was done by Harish Pathare.

Additional dialogues and final screenplay were written by Manoj Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.12.1971.

‘Balidaan-1971’ had six songs including one multiple version song. All songs for this movie were written by Verma Malik and they were composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

The details of the songs in this movie are as given below.

The male version of today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, and female version is sung by Krishna Kalle. I guess that the male version is picturised on Bharat Bhushan on the screen and the female version is picturised on Poornima. In both versions many other artists are also seen.

Blog Day :

Today 9th January’2022 is eighty-eighth birth anniversary of singer Mahendra Kapoor.

He was born on 9th January’1934 and passed away on 27th September’2008.

We remember him on this occasion and pay our tributes by listening to a song sung by him here on this blog. I am a big fan, if not a great fan, of Mahendra Kapoor songs.
These include patriotic songs and songs from other genres too.

After getting associated with this blog I have tried to bring many of his songs which so far are not posted on the blog.

Today’s song is one such song which I have noted long time back or almost nine years back.

This song is from the movie ‘Santosh-1989’.

One song from this movie has already been posted on the blog.

‘Santosh-1989’ was an ‘East-n-West Movies’ presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan.
Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. It had Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others.

Story of ‘Santosh-1989’ was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by V.V. Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).
Cinematography was done by Radian Kinagi.

This movie had six songs. Lyrics for the songs of this movie were written by Santosh Anand (five songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song). Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

It was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

A brief about this movie has been taken from IMDB and reproduced here below.

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

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. It is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar. Also seen in the picturization of this song is Herma Malini.

Lyrics are by Santosh Anand and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Listening to today’s song may remind some, the well song ‘aur nahin bas aur nahin, gham ke pyaale aur nahin’ from ‘Roti, Kapada Aur Makaan-1974’. I like this song and today’ song very much.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is written by Santosh Anand and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Enjoy!!!

Today’s song is from the 1969 movie ‘Sambandh’. I was aware of this ‘title’ since my childhood and I mainly associated this movie with its song ‘Chal Akelaa Chal Akelaa Chal Akelaa, Tera Mela Peechhe Chhoota Raahi Chal Akelaa’. I have a big nostalgia of this song, and whenever I listen to it the song takes me to a different world altogether. This song brings back many memories of childhood for me.

Somehow, I didn’t get to watch this movie for many years, and later on when I started my music collection (1986-1988), I got to listen to another song from this movie i.e., ‘Andhere Mein Jo Baithhe Hain, Nazar Un Par Bhi Kuchh Daalo’ which I got in a compilation ‘Hits of Mahendra Kapoor’.

Then I came across one more song from this movie, this time sung by Hemant Kumar – ‘Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche’ I like them all. And since the songs were penned by Kavi Pradeep my attraction towards this movie only increased further.

Secondly the music for this movie was composed by OP Nayyar Saab. And none of the songs composed by him for this movie sound like his characteristic music. That created a mystical ‘aura’ about this movie around me and that is still there (even I watched it once now I want to watch it more).

Then I became aware of one more song from this movie which was sung by Asha Bhonsle ‘Akeli Hoon Main Piya Aa’…

Years passed, and I carried the memory of the above songs. When I become associated with this blog, I was still interested to know about this movie and its songs. But it was only recently when for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’ our dear Prakash ji sent all the remaining songs from this movie that were still to be posted.

He sent us remaining four songs. Before that one more song ‘Tum Ko To Karodon Saal Huye Batlaao Gagan Gambhir’ got posted on the blog. Around the same time, I was browsing the HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) for the movies of 1969. Obviously, this movie ‘Sambandh’ features in that list too.

Finally I decided to watch this movie online. I liked the movie very much, but the print available online is not of a good quality both for the picture and the sound. Also, some parts and songs seemed to be edited from the available version of this movie.

Coming to today’s song from this movie, I can write something about it now as I have watched this movie. The song happens when Deb Mukherjee has lost his mother Sulochana. Deb had to perform his mother’s last rites without his father. He is aware that Pradeep Kumar is his father. But Pradeep Kumar is not aware that Deb Mukherji is his own son. Grief stricken Deb Mukherjee sings this song on the stage where Pradeep Kumar is also present. As Deb Mukherjee could not control his emotions while performing this song and stops singing, Pradeep Kumar who was listening in the spectator’s gallery come to the stage and sings a song consoling Deb Mukherjee. This second song is the song ‘Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche’, or ‘Ab To Is Desh Ki Maati Hi Teri Maata Hai’.

The first song (or the first part) is the song we are going to listen to today. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor.

Today also happens to be the eighty-eighth birth anniversary of Mahendra Kapoor (09.01.1934 – 27.09.2008), so this song also serves as a tribute to him.

Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Abhi Bhattacharya, Achala Sachdev, Nana Palsikar, Anjana Mumtaz, Vijaya Choudhury, Milon Mukerji, Sulochana Latkar, Ulhas and others.

Lyrics for today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let’s take a look on the list of songs of this movie and their status on the blog, as given below. We will further discuss about the movie in the concluding posts for the songs of this movie. For now I am skipping those details.

Hullo Atuldom

Today we are revisiting a movie that released in 1966 and was directed by J B H Wadia. The songs were all written by D.N. Madhok and C Ramchandra was the music director. It had 8 songs of which only 2 are on the blog. These are the ones posted:

Song Remarks
Duniya banaane waale ne post by Sudhirji marking 4200th post of the blog and has a lot of info about the actor Sajjan.
Tasveer bhi dekhi thhi this is also a post by Sudhirji.

Interesting notes are present in this second post about how C Ramchandra and D N Madhok have collaborated only twice (before this movie) and that too in the beginning of their careers.

Both these posts provide links to Memsaab’s blog and the synopsis/ review to the movie. BTW I forgot to mention that we are revisiting “Tasweer”.
As I sat to write this post my aim was to look for movies starring Zulfiqar Ali Shah Khan whose birthday falls on 25th September. He would have turned 82. I was paying particular attention to movies at the start of his career. I stumbled on a few movies where he had made uncredited appearances and the songs associated with them. I found that most of his initial songs are already present on the blog. I also found the song which was his absolute first appearance. I looked up for the song on the blog and also posted a comment pointing to the actor’s presence (that is the reason for my noticing that detail Nahmji).

I am sure the followers of the blog have figured out that I am talking of the very handsome, smart, fashionable, uber-cool icon of Bollywood. An actor, who in the later half of his career made super cool movies which were all phenomenal successes. His movies were peppered with great music, action and emotions. He had a special liking for the Cow-Boy getup. We are remembering Feroz Khan today. Sudhirji’s post of 2017 gives us a lot of insight on Feroz ‘stylish’ Khan and his career, I am sure I can’t better it.

Today’s song see him dance with Helen. We have Kalpana sitting, getting sad and shedding a tear and Sajjan (in a french beard) as part of the audience.

Today’s song is from the ‘1963’ movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’.

I have in past written about how I find some songs which were embedded in my impressionable mind in the childhood, either because of watching some movies or listening the songs on Radio.

Today’s song is one such song.

I had in my earlier post here mentioned that I had watched this movie ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan-1963’ when I was growing and have forgotten it now.
But I was always remembering this movie’s title and couple of its songs, and I was always looking for them.
So last year when I presented a song from this movie, I also go through the list of the other songs from this movie just out of interest. I did not listen to the remaining songs then.

Now, deviating from today’s post a little, I would like to mention one other song also from a mythological movie that I was vaguely remembering was ‘shankar bhole
bhaale shail bihaari, dam dam dam dam dmru baaje, traahimaam, traahimaam’.

I was sure that I had watched the movie where this song was there in my growing years.

I was always looking for this song and the only thing I remember was Dara Singh playing the Shivji’s role.

Few years back this song ‘shankar bhole bhaale shail bihaari’ was posted on the blog on 07.03.2016. But this did not contain the words ‘traahimaam traahimaam’. Four years later I presented a song ‘bolo shiv shiv shambhu bam bam bam’ from the movie ‘Har Har Mahadev-1974’. It also didn’t contain the words ‘traahimaam traahimaam’. Then the ‘dam dam dam damru baje’ words were also not there, and I thought that I may have, in my growing years, mixed-up with songs from the above movies and with a song from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’ which is another movie I have a nostalgia associated with it. There is a song in this movie ‘Dam Dam Dam Dam Damru baje’.

Now we come back to today’s post. About a month back when ‘shraavan’ month was about to start I started looking suitable songs to share on the blog. Also, I was looking for movies where few songs were required to ‘Yippeeee’ them on the blog.

Normally during this period of the year (i.e. shraavan month and later Ganpati festival) I am always reminded of some mythological and other movies which I had watched when I was growing.

Last year around the same time I had presented a song from ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’. The song was posted on 07.08.2020. Whatever songs from this movie have been posted on the blog are good songs and I like them very much.

I was remembering that there is a ‘naag-devtaa’ song in this movie. I thought I would present it on ‘Naag Panchami’ and if not on that day, I would share it in this month of ‘shraavan’ at least.

So, I take a chance to listen remaining songs from this movie and came across the today’s song. And finally, I got this ‘traahimaam …’ which actually is ‘traahimaam
Paahimaam’ 😊

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan-1963’ was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Roopkalaa Pictures’. It was produced by Mahipatray Shah. It had Anita Guha, Mahipal, with Ramsingh, Krishnakumari, Kummo Tripathi, and Raja Nene. They were supported by Ratnamala, T.N. Sinha, Prakash, Yunus Parwez, Mridula, Punam Kapoor, Baijnath, Ajit, Rehana, Uma Dutt, R.S. Dube, Munshi, Shekhar, Chand, Devchand, Lal Bahadur, Kishore, Dilawar Khan, Baby Chand, Burhan, Jugal Kishore, Dinanath, Vijay Kumar and Master Aziz.

The story of this movie was written by Vishwanath Pande, C.K. Mast, Pandit Madhur, and S.M. Abbas.
Editing of this movie was done by Ramchandra Mahadik.

‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan-1963’ had nine songs, all written by Pandit Bharat Vyas. The music was composed by Pandit Shivaram.

Mahendra Kapoor, Manna Dey, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Mahendra Kapoor had sung six solo songs in this movie and two of them have been posted on the blog so far. That gives us four solo songs more by Mahendra Kapoor to be posted on the blog.
Today we are going to listen one of them.

Manna Dey had sung one solo and Mukesh had one duet with Suman Kalyanpur which has also been posted on the blog. Suman Kalyanpur had solo song other than the duet with Mukesh which has also been posted on the blog.

Following is the list of the songs of this movie as appearing in the HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

S.No. Song Title Posted On
01 Sabko naach nachaane waala 24.11.2011
02 Bhagwaan Krishna ki amar kahaani
03 Jaa jaa jaa chhod de o chhaliyaa 07.08.2010
04 Apne piyaa ki main to bani re joganiya 25.10.2009
05 Bhaarat bhoomi mahaan hai
06 Ye duniya banaana aur banaa ke phir chalaana 07.08.2020
07 Nadiya na piye kabhi apna jal 15.05.2015
08 Ho o naag devtaa traahimaam paahimam Being presented today
09 Kan kan mein bhagwaan

As mentioned above today we listen to a song sung by Mahendra Kapoor which on screen is lip-synced by Mahipal (I have always loved watching him on the screen).

From the picturisation of the song I guess that the King’s (Yunus Parwez) son (Master Aziz) is very sick or maybe he has lost his life (because of snake-bite) and all efforts to revive him are failed. And so finally Mahipal is praying ‘Naag devtaa’ to bring back the child’s life. ‘Naag devtaa’ finally saves the child.

The video of this song is little longer and includes conversation which I have not included in the lyrics.

Let us now listen and enjoy one more song from ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwaan’.

(I would like to see this movie moving to ‘Yippeeee-land’ as early as possible 😊 )

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 147 # Balidaan -1971#
———————————————–—————————–—

Today 24th July 2021 is the eighty-fourth birthday (born as Harikishan Giri Goswami on 24th July’1937) of actor Manoj Kumar.
I have mentioned it in my earlier posts that Manoj Kumar and his movies have a special place in our heart or in the heart of those, who like me, have grown during the decade of seventies.

People of my generation got to see his earlier movies as well as his movies made when he was on the verge of retirement.

I mentioned earlier movies of Manoj Kumar because old black and white movies of 1960s and 1950s used to have their re runs on screens in 1970s, sometime in one or two shows, and sometimes even in full regular shows in theatres.

We may not have got the opportunity to his initial movies like ‘Fashion’, ‘Sahaara’, ‘Panchayat’, ‘Kaanch Ki Gudiya’, ‘Piya Milan Ki Aas’ etc, But we have been fortunate to get to watch his movies like ‘Woh Kaun Thhi?’, and ‘Hariyaali Aur Raastaa’ from the black and white era.

We also got to watch ‘Gumnaam’, ‘Upkaar’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Purab Aur Paschhim’, ‘Pehchaan’, ‘Roti Kapdaa Aur Makaan’, ‘Sanyaasi, ‘Dus Numberi’, ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’, etc.

I may have seen some more of his movies too with elders without realising it as I was still a child. Some songs from such movies have been in my memory since my childhood. E.g., ‘ik taaraa boley sun sun sun, kya kahe tumse’ from ‘Yaadgaar-1971’. I do not remember to have watched this movie, but this song keeps haunting me as if I had watched it.

I cannot forget my uncles teasing me with the song ‘Ye Gangaram ki samajh mein naa aaye’ in my childhood, may be because I was a ‘gol-matol-healthy boy’ 😊

There were some old movies which used to get screened in noon shows in the seventies and eighties. That is how I got to watch ‘Do Badan’, ‘Saawan Ki Ghataa’, ‘Patthar Ke Sanam’, ‘Anita’, ‘Amaanat’, ‘Neel Kamal’, when I was a grownup boy.

His movies when he was on the verge of retirement included ‘Kalyug Aur Ramayan’, and ‘Clerk’ etc. In between I remember I had watched ‘Shor’, ‘Mera Naam Joker’, ‘Be-imaan’ and ‘Pehchaan’ on VCR.

But I am sure I had not watched today’s movie i.e., ‘Balidaan-1972’. Also, I could not remember if I had listened to any songs of this movie except today’s song, which I think I must have heard earlier.

“Balidaan-1971” was directed by Ravi Tandon for ‘Verma Films Enterprises, Bombay’. It was produced by Aroon Varma and Darshan. It had Saira Banu, Manoj Kumar, Dev Kumar, Bharat Bhushan, Manmohan, Poornima, Manmohan, Anwar Hussain, Randhir, Asit Sen, Polsan, Heeralal, Janki Das, Bhushan Tiwari, Devraj, Gulab Singh, Kirti Kumar, Ranveer Raj, Om Sahni, Mahesh Raj, and Bindu and others. This movie introduced Devyani.

Story of this movie was written by Balkrishna Mouj. Editing of this movie was done by Harish Pathare. Additional dialogues and final screenplay were written by Manoj Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.12.1971.

‘Balidaan-1971’ had six songs including one multiple version song. All songs for this movie were written by Verma Malik and composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

The details of the songs in this movie are as given below.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted on the blog

06 Pranaam karo is dharti ko jisne hamko janam diya Krishna Kalle

We can see from the above table that three songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be presented here.

This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Manoj Kumar performing on this song on screen. We can see Saira Banu, Dev Kumar and many others in the picturisation of this song.

Let us now listen to today’s song which Verma Malik has written in his characteristic style lamenting the decadent ways of the modern society.…

“Aag”(1967) was produced and directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Dilms, Bombay. This movie had Feroz Khan, Mumtaz, Aruna Irani, Shyama, Srandhir, Madan Puri, Jeevan, Achla Sachdev, Manohar Deepak, Mohan Choti, Ram Mohan, Manmohan, Bipin Gupta, Amar Nath, Tun Tun, Indira Bansal, Ramlal, Sunder etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Aag”(1967) to appear in the blog. The song is picturised on Feroz Khan who plays a villager leading a contented life there as evidenced by this joie de vivre genre of song.

Towards the end of the song, we find Feroz Khan crossing a narrow stream on a narrow bridge. Half way on that makeshift bridge he comes across Mumtaz just as the song is coming to an end.

The song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.
