“Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) was one of two movies that were released on 15 August 1975. “Sholay”(movie 1975) was the other movie. In the earlier weeks, “Sholay”(1975) was receiving lukewarm response from audience, and their makers were very nervous. After a few days of anxiety, the crowd suddenly began to rust into the movie halls screening “Sholay”(1975), much to the relief of their makers.

On the other hand, “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) began to attract house full audiences from the very first day. Unlike Sholay(1975) it was a low budget movie and it began to show profits as soon as it became clear that the movie would not be taken off after one week but would go on and on. There were many places where this movie ran longer than Sholay. In Ranchi, Sholay ran for 14 weeks whereas Jai Santoshi Ma ran far longer.

The music of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became very popular. By now the songs of this movie have become a part of many Indian househlds. This movie is the highlight in the careers of Usha Mangeshkar (as a playback singer) and C Arjun (as a music director). Kavi Pradeep, a lyricist extraordinaire of religious and patriotic songs, got to pen the kind of lyrics he so enjoyed.

“Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) had six songs, including one multiple version song. All songs have gone on to become all time hit songs.

The blog has five of them. Here are the details:-

Song Date of posting (Post number) Remarks

Yahaan wahaan jahaan tahaan mat poochho kahaan kahaan 11 December 2017 (13802) Multiple version song- Two versions
Karti hoon tumhaara vrat main sweekaar karo maa 11 December 2020 (16089)
Madad karo Santoshi maata 28 May 2021 (16388)

Only one song is left to be covered. Here is that final song. This song is sung by Manna Dey. This is a song of “Hausla afzaai” for Kanan Kaushal, who falls into hard days (as is customary in a a devotional movie. 🙂 )

Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is cpmposed by C Arjun.

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

With this song, all the six songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This song is the 200th song of Kavi Pradeep in the blog as a lyricist.

When film making started in India, most films-i.e. about 98 %, were based on Religious Mythological or Folk stories. Even in that early era, there were Producers and Directors, who dared to make films on unusual but interesting subjects like Fictional kingdoms, highly scientific discoveries etc. Worth mentioning are a few films like Prabhat’s ‘ Wahan alias Beyond the Horizon’-1937, Prakash pictures’ ‘Mr. X’-38, Ranjit’s ‘ Prof. Waman M.Sc.’, Sagar’s ‘ 300 days and after’-38, Adarsha Chitra, Calcutta’s ‘ India in Africa’-1939 (first film to do shooting outside India, in foreign countries), Sagar’s ‘ Mahageet ‘-37 and the best film by Prakash Pictures-” Khwaab ki duniya’-1937. ( there may be some more such films too).

Not all such offbeat films succeeded, but surely they provided a Ray of Hope that Indian cinema will surely come out of this beaten track and grandma stories. I am not very sure, but I have a strong feeling that during the early films of the 40s, a few C grade action and stunt films too were made on such offbeat themes. One such film is Master Bhagwan’s ” Bhedi Bungala alias House of Mystery “-1949, India’s first Horror film. ( during the shooting, in one scene Bhagwan had to keep his eyes wide open-as if in fear. He stretched them so much and for such a long time that for one day he lost sight of both eyes. After the doctor’s treatment he regained his vision. Can we expect such dedication in today’s actors, in general ?).

For lack of proper documentation, we are unable to comment on such films of yore. As far back as 1936, Prabhat film company had made a film on Mutiny on the sea by a brave woman- Amar Jyoti-1936, featuring a new heroine- Durga Khote. Life on ships and sword fighting by a woman was mesmerising the audience.

The celestial entities have always enticed the Human Race. They were effectively used in sciences like Astrology and Astronomy. Since time immemorial Man always wanted to visit these planets sans The Sun. Moon was the centre of attraction. Could the Hindi filmmakers keep off from making a film on this theme ? Most kept off ! They , perhaps, thought it safe to use The Moon (चांद ) only in songs and dialogues. However, going through the list of film titles, I found that films using the word Chand in the titles were made, but barring a few C grade stunt and action films, this ‘ Chand ‘ was alluding to something else like the Lover, beloved and other similar things.

Film titled only Chaand were made in -1934,1944 and 1959. Then there were 13 films having ‘ Chand ‘ in their titles. As far as I gather, there were only 2 films made on fictional stories involving the Planet Moon. One was Chand ki Duniya-1959 and the other was Chand pe Chadhai (Trip to the Moon)-1967.

Today’s song is from film Chaand ki duniya-59. It is quite a long song….7.41 minutes to be exact. the video reveals that the song is filmed on the Hero Soham Kapila, the heroine Nalini Chonkar and the comedian Ram Avtar. If you remember, he had a hilarious role in film Teesri manzil-1966 as a co-passenger of Shammi Kapoor.

Ram Avtar Pandey, from Rampur-UP, started his filmi career in 1938 with character roles. In the early 50s, he switched to comedy, when he gained weight and a pot belly. Ram Avtar was a fixture in many Nasir Hussain films. His roles in Badi Behan-49,Nagin-54, Hum sub chor hain-56, Tumsa nahin dekha-57, Jab pyar kisi se hota hai-61, Phir vohi dil laya hoon-63, Teesri Manzil-67, Yaadon ki Baraat etc are memorable. His last film was Prem Geet-1981. He acted in 133 Hindi films.

The film was made by Filmistan, a big banner. Unfortunately, it was made as a quicky, without much interest. The film was directed by Mohan Sinha (grandfather of actress Vidya Sinha, of Rajnigandha-74 fame). The MD was Nirmal Kumar alias S.D.Batish.

Many composers gave music to C grade films using Pseudonyms. For example, C. Ramchandra gave music to action films in the name of ” Annasaheb”, S D Batish used the name Nirmal Kumar, Durrani used Gunjan as his name, to quote a few examples. But one name hardly anyone knows and that is Anil Biswas. Yes, when he gave music to film Begunah-1949, he used the name as Haribhai. His co-MD was Shyamu- which was C. Ramchandra ! This information is given in The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema by Rajadhyaksha.

The cast of the film was Sohan Kapila, Nalini Chonkar, Ram Avtar, P. Kailash, Badri Prasad, Husn Bano, Indira Bansal, B M Vyas, Vijay Kumar, Noor (wife of Johnny Walker) etc etc. the banner was good, story was fine, songs were good, MD was good, Heroine and Director were good. The whole problem was with the dumb Hero- Sohan Kapila. he was one actor who was a Non Actor.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj, Shammi and Shashi, who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of the famous family members, these and such many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given a fair opportunity to display their talent on the screen, but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar ,which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director, who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan.

Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar. But the movie flopped, as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan, who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from scene for ever. His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued film career, but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him, who got chances to appearopposite illustrious heroines, unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen, no film maker came forward to sign them again. Out of sight is out of mind, it was a matter of time when public as well as film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951. It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan. The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabaadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films, among hundreds of aspirants. Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge set back when Aman flopped. He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia, opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately, Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea, Rattan Chopra understood and wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physique, but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards film industry .Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting. The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev Kapoor, Manish Kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop Kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak Kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

With all this no wonder the film was a flop and a good story was wasted. Today’s song is the 4th song of this film on the Blog. But the song is good. Enjoy….

Hullo Atuldom

2nd June 1988. 33 years ago, Raj Kapoor who was also called the greatest Showman, bid adieu to this mortal world.

He was first an actor who turned a filmmaker early in his career. It is said that he had done roles as a child actor in the late ’30s, but his first adult role happened in 1947 in ‘Neel Kamal’ with Madubala as his heroine. Within a year he turned a producer-director, set up the RK Banner and came up with “Aag” and went on to produce and direct nine more movies – the last of which was “Ram Teri Ganga Maili”. Additionally he produced ‘Biwi-o-biwi’, ‘Dharam Karam’, ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’, ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hain’, ‘Ab Dilli Door Nahin’, ‘Jaagte Raho’, Boot Polish’, ‘Aah’ i.e. the total output of RK banner during Raj Kapoor’s lifetime was 18. His sons Randhir- Rishi- Rajeev tried to keep the legacy of the banner alive and made a few more movies.

Of the movies that RK Banner produced in the ’70s two were directed by Randhir Kapoor viz. ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ and ‘Dharam Karam’.

“Kal Aaj Aur Kal” had a lot of interesting aspects associated with it. (1) It was the acting and direction debut of Randhir Kapoor. (2)It had three generations of the family :- grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor, father Raj Kapoor and Randhir kapoor. (3) It marked the last acting assignment of Prithviraj Kapoor and I have read somewhere that he dubbed for the movie almost from his death-bed. (3) The movie starred Raj Kapoor’s future daughter-in-law Babita. (4) This was the last RK movie for which Shankar- Jaikishan gave music. Apparently Jaikishan had completed recording the music for this movie before he passed away.

Mehmood gave a tribute to the RK family in a song from “Humjoli” (1970) when he played the grandfather, father and (modern) son.

KAAK had six songs of which the blog has four songs. Today’s song shows Raj Kapoor as the father of a stubborn young son and son of stubborn old father. He is torn between his love for his father and son. He does not want to take sides in the tug-of-war of the two generations and both father and son have asked him to choose who is more important. We have Raj Kapoor expressing all his emotions through his beautiful light-eyes (remember the reference to those eyes in the song “masti bhara hain sama”.)

The song is written by Neeraj and sung by Manna Dey.

Song-Dekhiye to kya ajeeb haal hai (Kal Aaj aul Kal)(1971) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Neeraj, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai
sochiye toh kya ajeeb baat hai ae ae
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai

ek daal iss tarah phooli phali
ek ek paat phool ban gaya
ek daal iss tarah phooli phali
ek ek paat phool ban gaya
ek daal iss qadar magar luti
ek ek phool dhool ban gaya
aaj aur kal ki dhoop chhaanv mein aen
iss liye samay ke soone gaanv mein
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai

ek hawa chali ke khil uthha chaman
ek hawa chali ke sab ujad gaya
ek kadam uthaa ke raah mil gayi
ek kadam uthaa ke path bichhad gaya
ek hawa chali ke khil uthha chaman
ek hawa chali ke sab ujad gaya
ek kadam uthaa ke raah mil gayi
ek kadam uthaa ke path bichhad gaya
iss liye dilon ki jeet haar mein aen
iss liye kisi ke preet pyaar mein aen
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye toh kya ajeeb haal hai ae
sochiye toh kya ajeeb baat hai ae ae
ek paanv chal raha alag alag
doosra kisi ke saath saath hai ae ae
dekhiye to kya ajeeb haal hai

“Girls’ School”(1949) was written and directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Lokmanya Productions, Bombay. Lokmanya Productions was a joint venture of Kavi Pradeep and Amiya Chakraborty. This movie had Geeta Bali, Sohan, Mangala, Krishna, Sajjan, Ram Singh, Shashikala, Vimala Vashisht etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Anil Biswas was signed up as the music director. But he walked out of the movie when he found Kavi Pradeep the co producer interfering in his work. So C Ramchandra composed music for the remaining songs.

Six songs from “Girls’ School”(1949) have been covered in the past. The movie incidentally had little to do with the education of girls despite its fancy title. And the movie duly flopped. So the songs of the movie are better enjoyed as standalone songs, rather than as part of this movie.

Today (1 may 2021) is the birth anniversary of Manna Dey (1 may 1919-24 october 2013). On this occasion, here is a song from “Girls’ School”(1949). The song is sung by Manna Dey and Shamshad Begam. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Anil Biswas is mentioned as the music director of this song, but I suspect that this song could have been composed by C Ramchandra, seeing that C Ramchandra used the voices of Shamshad Begam and Lalita Deulkar as female voices in other songs composed for the movie, mainly because Lata Mangeshkar, the first choice for female playback singer, who had recorded three songs with Anil Biswas for the movie, refused to record more songs, when she came to know about the unceremonious ouster of Anil Biswas from this movie. However, I have gone with Anil Biswas as the music director here as mentioned in HFGK.

Today is also International labour day. The lyrics of the song sound appropriate for tat occasion as well.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

The song under discussion is from “Sampoorna Devi Darshan”(1971). “Sampoorna Devi Darshan”(1971) was produced by S J Rajdev and directed by Shantilal Soni for ‘Sargam Chitra, Bombay’. The movie had Sushma, Ashish Kumar, B.M. Vyas, Padma Rani, Shabana, Uma Dutt, Azad, Shery Mohan, Arvind Pandya, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Shri Bhagwan, Bhagwan Sinha, Maya, Shobha, Suman, Prem Lata, Daya Devi, Rajeshwari Rao, Haroon, Prince Arjun, Kiran Kumar, Dalpat Bhai etc in it.

Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by R. Priyadarashi. Editing of this movie was done by I.M. Kunnu. Lyrics of this movie were written by B.D. Mishra and music was composed by S.N. Tripathi.

Lyrics of the song as well as details of the movie were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala, with the request that- “Kindly introduce the movie with your writeup please, as I am not good when it comes to writing about mythology. Please.

While making the above request, he assumed that I can write about mythology. In reality, I know even less about this topic. Whatever litle I knew about this topic was from my voracious reading of children’s magazines like Chandamama, and also reading of Geeta Press Gorakhpur religious publications during my younger days. I have already forgotten most of that.

I in fact, learnt something new from the email of Avinash Scrapwala. I realised that there is a Navratri during Durga puja of october November and also another navratri in the summer season. The summer season navratri is called Chaitra navratri and it marks the beginning of the Hindu calendar year.

Today marks the beginning of Hindu calendar year Samvat 2078. This is Vikram Samvat (Vikram calendar), which, we can see is 57 years ahead of Gregorian calendar (the one that is commonly followed by most people). However India adopted Shak Samwat (Shak Calendar) as Indian calendar which has the same months as Vikram calendar but it started in 78 AD, unlike Vikram Samwat which started in 57 BC. Official Shak calendar is tied to the Gregorian calendar. It begins on 22 march, and on Gregorian leap year it begins on 21 march.

Chaitra is the first month of Hindu Vikram Samvat calendar year. This year this day falls on 13 April. Chaitra navratri begins from this day. This time it is from 13 april to 22 april.

Like during the october-november Navratri, the chaitra navratri too is observed by praying to different avatars of Goddess Durga during the nine days of the festival. These avataras, that are worshipped on the nine days are:-from day one to day nine-Maa Shailputri, Maa Brahmcharini, Maa Chandraghanta,Maa Kushmaanda,Skandmata, Maa Katyayani, Maa Kaalraatri, Maa Mahagauri and Maa Sidhhidaatri.

The festival marks the beginning of the spring season and it ends with Ram Navami or the birthday of Lord Rama.

This new year day is celebrated in different parts of the country by different names viz. Gudi Padwa (Maharashra, MP,Chattisgarh), Ugadi (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka), Puthandu (Tamilnadu), Vishu (Kerala), Bihu (Assam), Poila Baisaakh (Bangal), Baisaakhi (Punjab) etc.

Just imagine for a second. All these regions of India, located far far away from each other, have been celebrating their new year on this same day for many centuries! It means that all these diverse places, separated by vast distances have been culturally integrated for many many centuries ago ! How else do you explain the fact that all these regions celebrate their new years on the same day ! I notice that I have stayed in almost all the above mentioned regions of India and I have observed this new year celebrated in almost all its different forms. 🙂

Religious minded people use this occasion for pooja, archana, aradhana etc, whereas cultural minded people celebrate it through songs and dances. Vigorous Punjabi dance on this occasion is well known to most people. Personally I am a big fan of Bihu dance that I saw getting performed on this occasion, during my stay in Assam two decades ago. These festivals also have much to offer to those who look forward to sweets and pakwaans. 🙂

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had six songs (including one five-part song). All the songs of this movie were written by B.D. Mishra and music was composed by S.N. Tripathi.

The list of the songs given in HFGK is as follows;

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Jai devi maata, jai nau durgaa maata Manna Dey, Chandrani Mukherji, chorus
02 Sansaar ki kaisi reet hai …sachchaayi roye duniya mein Asha Bhonsle
03 O raaja aa jaa na mere paas Asha Bhonsle
04 Aao suhaag ki raat manaa le… tumhaare sang jeenaa thha Asha Bhonsle
05 (a) Nij janm bhoomi dharti maa ko naman-part-1
(b) Hari bhari brajbhoomi seenchti sadaa
(c) Kaam krodh mad lobh moh kitnaa hi zor lagaaye
(d) Paap taap santaap jhoothh ki ek na chalegi
(e) Teerath teerath mandir mandir jo ghoome din raat
Manna Dey, Chandrani Mukherjee, chorus
06 Maa Paava gadh thhi ootaryaa mahaakaali re (garbaa)

When I first looked at the name of the movie and the lyrics of the song, and looked at the request of Avinash scrapwala regarding this being a song for the occasion, my first impression was, how can it be. It is a song fit for Durga puja. Then, on doing some research, that I have presented above, I found out that there is something known as Chaitra Navratri and that it is a festival like the Navratri of Dashara, and that this song is actually tailormade for the occasion. Now I have realised that the world “Nav Durga” that we often come across is not “nav Durga” but “nau Durga” viz. “nine Durga”, and it refers to the nine forms of Durga.

The song plays in the background at the credits appear on the screen. The lyrics of this song mentions all the nine forms of Durga.

This shows that the makers of movies like this were very well versed with Indian mythology and they could make movies on such topics. The lyricists of the songs of such movies had indepth knowledge about the subject as we can see from the lyrics of this song, which comes from the pen of B D Mishra. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

With this song, “Sampoorna Devi Darshan”(1971) makes its debut in the blog. 1971 saw 115 movies getting released. This movie is the 106th movie of 1971 to find representation in the blog.

We this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year and chaitr navraatr.

Let us now listen to song devoted to Maa Durga, the Goddess who is worshipped during this Chaitr Navraatr.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 131 # Qawwalis – 9
——————————————-—–—————-——

Welcome all to another post presenting a song from the ‘decade of seventies-1971-1980’. The years when I was growing, and as a ‘child’ I have many memories and nostalgia especially related with the only popular entertainment medium available those days i.e., ‘Hindi Cinema’, ‘Radio’ and ‘Hindi Film Music’.

Today I am once again taking you to back to the ‘seventies’. Today we will listen to a ‘qawwali’ composed by Raam Laxman. His first on the blog in this category. Today’s song in not a ‘pure’ ‘qawwali’ but can be termed a ‘fusion-qawwali’ if I am not wrong. Today’s song can also remind readers of the famous ‘raaz ki baat kah doon to’ from the movie ‘Dharma-1973’.

Well, the today’s song or ‘qawwali’ is from the movie ‘Agent Vinod-1977’.

‘Agent Vinod-1977’ was directed by Deepak Bahri for ‘Sargam Pictures Pvt. Ltd., Bombay’.
It had Mahendra Sandhu, Asha Sachdev, Rehana Sultana, Iftekhar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Nazir Hussain, Ravindra Kapoor, K.N. Singh, V. Gopal, Vishwa Mehra, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Sunder, Bhagwan, Sharat Saksena, Kamal Deep, Master Romi, Shail Chaturvedi, Ranvir Raj, Gurbachan, Brujendra Mohan, Jagdeep, Helen, Jayshree T., Leena Das, Sheetal, Asha Potdar, Geeta Khanna, Shobhna Shah and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.07.1977.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my Father, I had forgotten about this movie except its one song ‘Lovelina aa gaya main’. And later on, when I started my music collection, I was always looking for this movies’ song. The other thing that had made to my ‘impressionable mind’ was its dashing hero Mahendra Sandhu. However, I do not remember if I watched his other movies too (they are not so many I think).
But like many other stars from the ‘seventies’, I always remember Mahendra Sandhu’s name whenever movies or related stories about movies were discussed among friends or in the family with elders.

This movie had six songs which were penned by Ravindra Rawal and composed to music by Raam-Laxman.

Following is the list of songs of this movie (as given in HFGK Vol-V-1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Zu zu … main jhonka matwaala Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Lovelina main aa gaya Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh 21.10.2013
03 Band kamre mein ek ladki akeli Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Sandhu
04 Mehfil mein aaye ho aao muqaabil Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey Being discussed today
05 Yaara dildaara, tera ye ishaara Usha Mangeshkar, Dilraj Kaur
06 Ham to nikle ram bharose Mahendra Kapoor, Jaspal Singh, chorus

We can see that as many as nine singers were used for the six songs in this movie. This easily give us hint about the variety of the songs this movie had.

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 21.10.2013. Around the same time, I had noted the today’s song which is being presented today.

Today’s song happens in a party and is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. On screen it is Leena Das and Mahendra Sandhu lip-syncing in the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey respectively.
Also seen in the picturization is Asha Sachdev who accompanies Mahendra Sandhu in the party which I guess is hosted by Pinchoo Kapoor who seems to have planned to trap Mahendra Sandhu – a secret agent. And for this purpose, Leena Das sings the song to woo Mahendra Sandhu. Mahendra Sandhu who is already aware of their intentions joins the song. Not just that , he even cautions them ‘hamse na uljho aye jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge,
pehchaan jaaoge, phir maan jaaoge’ 😊

I hope readers will like today’s song as much as I do. 😊

let us now enjoy today’s song …


Song-Mehfil mein aaye ho aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge (Agent Vinod)(1977) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Ram Laxman

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aa aa
Jo roshani hai
aaftaab chaand taaron mein
Jo dilkashi hai
chaman ke haseen nazaaron mein
Mere shabaab mein
aise samaa gaye ae donon
Ke jaise pyaar ke nagme
jawaan bahaaron mein

Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge
Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge

Aji hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Surkh zanjeer nazar teer
Adaayein khanjar
Hain tabassum mein bijliyaan
Mera shabaab kehar
Aa aa
Inmein uljhaana mujhe
Koi aasaan nahin
Maut ka darr ho jise
Main wo naadaan nahin
Kabhi nishaana
Kabhi waar chook jaata hai
Mera qaatil har ek baar
Jhhuk jaata hai
Iss ghadi bhi hoon nishaane pe
Waar kar jaao
Ya meri maut ka phir aitbaar kar jaao

Hmm bahut dekhe
Haan
Hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Waqt ke saath main har rang mein
Dhal saktaa hoon
Zidd pe aaoon to rukh hawaa ka
Badal saktaa hoon

Josh mein yoon naa machal
Naaz itna bhi naa kar
Tujhko behkaa gayi hai
Ye jawaani ki lehar
Ye mera kaam thha
Aagaah tujhe kar dena
Koi mushkil nahin
Gumraah tujhe kar dena
zulfein kar doon jo pareshaan to
Aise ghir jaao
Inn andheron mein
Umr bhar bhatakte reh jaao
Achha
Hmm
Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge

Jahaan mein dekhe hi nahin hai
Toone zindaa dil

Tu bhi samjhaa nahin nadaan
Adaayein qaatil
Aa aa
Aaj maukaa hai milaa

Phir na karnaa tu gilaa
Main hoon tayyar khadaa
Jhoothi zidd pe hai adaa
Jaane kyon teri jawaani pe
Reham aata hai
Haath aaya shikaar bhi
Koi ganwaata hai

Nainon se teer chale
Haan
Meri aahon se chale

Neechi nazron ki hayaa
Khaali ye waar gayaa
Tabassum ki ye bijlee
Naa meri jaan nikli
Ye meri shokh adaa
Kuchh asar hi naa hua
Dekh meri angdaayee
Ye bhi mujh tak na aayi

Mere liye koi nayaa sitam
Ijaad karo
Ya jo jawaab diya hai maine
Use yaad karo
Kyon yaad aaya ke nahin

Aji hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

“The Right And the wrong”(1970) was written, produced and directed by Harbans (Micky) Kumar for Deluxe Films Corporation. It was the first Carribean (West Indian) colour movie, produced in Trinidad and Tobago, a country with large population of Indian origin emigrants who left India and settled in that as well as neighbouring countries (such as Guyana, Suriname etc) a few centuries ago. Many West Indian Cricketers with Indian sounding names are descendents of those Indian origin people. Names like Sonny Ramadhin, Rohan Kanhai, Alvin Kalicharan, Shivnaraine Chanderpal, Ravi Rampal, Darren Ganga, Ramnaresh Sarwan are familiar to cricket lovers.

“The Right And the wrong”(1970) had Ralph Maharaj, Angela Seukaran, Elain Le Gare, Frant Raiter,Francis ashlby, Gloria Kim david, Holly Betaudier, Jasse mcdonald,Mark mathews, Rasheed Pier khan, Susan Hawkins, Tony Maharaj,Yusuf Ali etc in it.

This movie was set in the era hen these emigrants from India were used by white people as contract labours. The movie was in English but it had two Hindi songs in it. Some Hindi movie names were roped in to create these songs.

One such song is already represented in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh ! This song (and for that matter the movie itself) was a big hit among Indian origin people of West Indies. If one is not aware, one would consider that song as from an Indian movie. This song, O mere hamraahi kyun tera man ghabraaye was discussed in the blog on 2 January 2009, more than 12 years ago !

It turns out that the second Hindi song from this movie was a Holi festival song ! Today (29 march 2021) is the festival of Holi. These are unusual days for India and the world, when extreme caution is advisable while celebrating festivals. On this occasion, here is this “unusual” Holi song from an English language Carribean movie.

If the earlier song was sung by Mukesh, then this song is sung by Manna Dey. The song also has male and female chorus. Thakur Chhabra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vedpal Verma.

Lyrics of this song and other details ere sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Holi.

Blog Day:

A celebration of 100 years of Sahir Ludhianvi – his 700th song being posted on our blog.

A hundred years today. Being celebrated by the 700th post on our blog.

Sahir Ludhianvi – the “. . . Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, who would be actually “. . . Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, being relevant for all times, and responsive to all the pitfalls and tragedies of the human experience. But then also, never to be discounted for romanticism a la “Ye Raat Ye Chaandni Phir Kahaan. . .” and “Yoon To Hamne Laakh Haseen Dekhe Hain“, or even as “Phir Na Keeje Meri Gustaakh Nigaahi Ka Gila“, or the upbeat strings of “Mere Labon Pe Dekho Aaj Bhi Taraane Hain. . .“, or even the most in depth portrayal of the bhakti (devotion) sentiment, as in “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyaam Saanwre“, and “Tum Bansi Ho Main Taan, Ham Tum Do Nahin” and even more intense in “Aaj Sajan Mohey Ang Laga Lo. . .“.

Yes, it is the poet who is Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar, touching all the facets of experiences of life, from the time when a child is pining for the moon as a toy, and all the way to the derelict conclusion of the human life as in “Lo Apna Jahaan Duniyawaalo, Hum Is Duniya Ko Chhod Chale“.

Sahir Sb seemed to have an affinity for the phrase ‘pal do pal’. We hear these words in ‘Railway Platform’ (1957) –

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara, Pal Do Pal Ki Yaari
Aaj Ruke To Kal Karni Hai Chalne Ki Tayaari
Basti Basti Parvat Parvat. . .

Repeated in ‘Mehmaan’ (1974)

. . .
Pal Do Pal Dhoom Machha Ley
Yoon Mar Mat Mar Mat Yaaraa

In ‘Zameer’ (1975), he would write

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal
Do Pal. . .

Then again in ‘Burning Train’ (1980), reminding us of the shades of ‘Railway Platform’

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara
Pal Do Pal Ke Yaaraane Hain. . .

And yes, ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ (1976) of course,

Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon
Pal Do Pal Meri Kahaani Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Hasti Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Jawaani Hai

In ‘Pyaasa’ of 1957, he had posed three very profound questions in the lines of poetry he wrote for that film. At a personal level, the query was “Jaane Wo Kaise Log The Jin Ke Pyaar Ko Pyaar Mila“. On the plane of social strife and stigma he had asked “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain“. And then, the ultimate question of life that he has posed is “Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai“. The film gains its depths, attempting to interpret and address these questions. And more than sixty years later, these questions continue to haunt the discerning mind. Timeless queries, one would say, but still, crystallized for once in words by Sahir.

There is this one incisive insight that the poet possesses, or maybe the other way round, this incisive insight possesses the poet. Each verse, each song that he has penned in his lifetime, goes well beyond the simple words that he wrote. His words, his lines offer you, nay they force you to take a pause and think – what profundity, in just this simple arrangement of 8, 10 or 15 words. And the thought will stay in the mind for much much longer that what it took to simply read the words for once.

This life, ‘zindagi’ – the incisive insight brings out so many facets that the poet examined it. In 1954, he penned the following for ‘Taxi Driver’

Ae Meri Zindagi
Aaj Raat Jhoom Le, Aasmaan Ko Choom Le
Kis Ko Pata Hai Kal Aaye Ke Na Aaye. . .

For ‘Munim Ji’in 1955, he wrote

Ek Taraf Haseen Jalwe Hain
Ik Taraf Jawaani
Zindagi Hai Zinda. . .

In 1958, his words for ‘Light House’ are

Tang Aa Chuke Hain Kashmakash-e-Zindagi Se Hum
Thukra Na Den Jahaan Ko Kahin Be-dilee Se Hum

With 1960 came ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ and the promising words are

Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhoolegi Wo Barsaat Ki Raat. . .

1962, and it is ‘Hum Dono’, with the lines

Main Zindagi Ka Sath Nibhata Chala Gaya. . .

With ‘Aaj Aur Kal’, 1963, ‘Zindagi’ was a most depressing thought.

Maut Kitni Bhi Sangdil Ho Magar
Zindagi Se To Meharbaan Hogi

‘Chandi Ki Deewaar’ and 1964, another depressing sentiment

Kahin Qaraar Na Ho Aur Kahin Khushi Na Miley
Hamaare Baad Kisi Ko Ye Zindagi Na Mile

And then, a refreshing thought in 1965, with these lines in ‘Shagoon’,

Ham Hain Maayoos Magar Itne Bhi Maayoos Nahin
Ek Na Ek Din To Yah Ashqon Ki Ladi Tootegi
Ek Na Ek Din To Chhatenge Ye Ghamon Ke Baadal
Ek Na Ek Din To Ujaale Ki Kiran Phootegi
Zindagi Zulm Sahi Zabr Sahi Gham Hi Sahi

On to 1969, and the life is a happenstance – film is ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’,

Zindagi Ittefaaq Hai
Kal Bhi Ittefaaq Thi Aaj Bhi Ittefaaq Hai

And in the same film, we have the sobering sentiment as,

Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Khushi Ke Phool Bhi
Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Ghamon Ki Dhool Bhi
Zindagi Kabhi Yaqeen Kabhi Gumaan Hai
Har Qadam Pe Teraa-Meraa Imtahaan Hai
Zindagi Ke Rang Kai Re Saathi Re. . .

Come 1975, and it is ‘Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka’; the refrain once again is downbeat as in

Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuchh Itna Qareeb Se
Chehre Tamaam Lagne Lage Hain Ajeeb Se

But then it is ‘Zameer’ in the same year that bounces back to say,

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal Do Pal
Ise Khona Nahin Kho Ke Rona Nahin

Plus a more sobering thought, from the same film,

Tum Bhi Chalo Hum Bhi Chalen
Chalti Rahe Zindagi
Naa Zameen Manzil Naa Aasmaan
Zindagi Hai Zindagi

With ‘Kaala Pathar’ in 1979 came the motorcycling song that infused the bubbling spirit of freedom and hope.

Jaate Huye Qadmon Se
Aate Huye Qadmon Se
Bhari Rahegi Raahguzar
Jo Ham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ik Raastaa Hai Zindagi
Jo Tham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ye Qadam Kisi Muqaam Pe
Jo Jam Gaye To Kuchh Nahin

Coming to the song being presented today. It is a wonder that I thought of, as I listened to this song today after a very long time. Yes, a child pining for getting the moon to play with. And with the ‘बाल हठ’ (a child’s obduracy), it is an overwhelming experience to be able to convince the child and talk it out of its impossible wish. As I listened, I am reminded of the story from the Ramayan – the passage where Ram, as a toddler, one day gets into His mind that he wants the moon to play with. No amount of coaxing and appeasing and promises by the parents and others can talk Him out of His insistence. And the accompanying wailing and waving of arms is making Kaushalya and Dashrath very worried and uncomfortable. Rajguru, Vashishth ji is summoned for help. He arrives and says, well, if the child is wanting the moon, give Him the moon. The parents are confused, and ask Vashishth ji, as to how to make that happen.

Rajguru asks for a large dish (‘परात’) with raised edges. The dish is placed in front of the child, and is filled with water. Instantly, the likeness of the moon is reflected in the water in the dish. So Vashishth ji beckons the child and points to the reflection and says, here is the moon, now play. So the toddler Ram, seeing that the moon is now so close, puts His hands in water, but swish and splash as He may, He is not able to hold in hand, the reflection that can be seen with the eyes. But the splashing play pleases Him, and the wailing is forgotten.

Sahir Sb is addressing the same situation in this song, likely that the child is insisting on visiting ‘Chanda Mama’. And as is the rule in Hindi films – well, you have a song to for a three-minute-disposition-of-a-difficult-situation. The lines in the song are actually trying to reason with the child, based on some simple logic statements, that aim at convincing the child that they (the three bad men in the film) are much better suited to be ‘Mamma’ to the child than the distant moon.

So there is arguments like, hads ‘Chanda Mama’ ever visited you? Has ‘Chanda Mama’ ever invited you to his place. He just sits in the sky and creates a fake uproar. Where as we (the three bad men in the film) are with you every day. We play with you, we take care of you and bring you toys. And so, as is wont in Hindi films, all it takes is three minutes of music and song to change the mind of any individual in any situation. Start the song, and you can time the mind conversion almost exactly to 3 minutes (maybe plus a few more seconds).

The video of this song is not available, but it most certainly is picturized on Geeta (role played by Baby Rani) who plays the upset little child, wanting the moon, and the three bad men – Govind, Joseph and Nazir (roles played by Pran, Ajit and Anwar Hussain respectively). The singing voice for the three bad men are back played by Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Manhar. The singing voice is not identified for a few lines at the end of the song, which are apparently lip synced by the child.

The film is ‘Nanha Farishta’ from 1969. A film by T Prakash Rao, is a touching tale of three criminals whose lives are transformed by the love a small child girl they have kidnapped. The star cast of this film includes Pran, Ajit, Anwar Hussain, Baby Rani, Padmini, Pandharibai, Balraj Sahni, Johnny Walker, Suresh, Mukri, Raj Mehra, Sunder, Maruti, and Prem Kumar.

The film has four songs, all penned by Sahir Sb. The music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. Two of the four songs are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here, as the centenary celebration of this gifted poet. And we also add the celebration of adding the 700th song by Sahir Sb to our blog.

A very refreshingly joyful song – yes, Sahir Sb had the versatility to pen such gems also.

Listen and enjoy.

Blog Day :

4603 Post No. : 16232

Hullo Atuldom

12th February was the birthday of an Atulite. He has started a series to introduce missing movies of the ’70s, and just as well as movies of 70s will complete 50 years. It is unbelievable that movies that were part of our childhood are 50 years old.

‘Guddi’, ‘Andaz’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Caravan’, ‘Anand’, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Parwana’, ‘Tere Mere Sapne’, etc all 1971 releases, all which I have seen multiple times. I am sure that these movies would be favourites of a majority of the followers of this blog.

There is one more movie that will complete 50 years this year. Its release date has been recorded on various internet sites as 1st July 1971, but the censor certificate has a date of 24th February 1970 i.e. exactly a year after its leading lady bade goodbye to this mortal world.

Madhubala- the beauty who charmed an entire generation of moviegoers. A beauty who had an infectious smile and near-musical laughter: – can anyone forget the laughter that precedes ‘haal kaisa hai janaab ka’ or the mischievous smile through ‘accha jee main haari chalo maan jaao na’ and ‘jaanu jaanu re chhupke kaun aaya tore angna’. Her eyes were so expressive. But write-ups about her say that she kept a low public profile and was not seen at film parties and premieres.

She was born Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi in Delhi on 14th February (which the world celebrates as valentine day in modern times) as fifth of eleven children to Ataullah Khan and Ayesha Begum. An out of work father first reached Delhi from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) and then to Bombay. A very young Mumtaz was first cast as a child actor in the 1942 release ‘Basant’ which was followed by ‘Mumtaz Mahal’,‘Phulwaari’, ‘Dhana Bhagat’, ‘Rajputaani’. Baby Mumtaz became Madhubala from “Neel Kamal” in 1947. It is said that baby Mumtaz and baby Mahjabeen became friends in the period they were child actors and grew up to be contemporaries – Madhubala and Meena Kumari. Madhubala is said to have been a fan of Meena and her voice.

Madhubala was one of the most popular, successful and highly paid actresses of the ‘50s and ’60s. She acted in 73 movies in a career spanning almost two decades though the ‘60s saw only five films of hers. She also produced three movie: – ‘Naata’ (1955), ‘Mehlonkekhwab’ (1960) and ‘Pathan’ (1962). She sang a song or two as baby Mumtaz in ‘Basant’. She was an enigma who was rarely seen at filmy functions or premieres, this was because she was an obedient daughter and submitted to the domination of her father. According to what Dilip Kumar has once said:- she was the only female star for whom crowds would gather at the gates of the studios where she was shooting. Many believe she was one of the most underrated actresses as her beauty attracted more attention than her talent. She was good at expressing a range of emotions through her eyes- comedy, pathos etc etc. In spite of being an iconic actress she never won any awards and was only nominated for her role in “Mughal-e-azam” but she reigned on the hearts of her fans.

She was unlucky in life and had a few heartbreaks before leaving this world and Kishore Kumar, whom she married in 1960, yearning for her. She died on 23rd February 1969 of congenital heart disease;an ailment for which there was no treatment when she was diagnosed in 1954 on the sets of a film being made in Madras. By the time heart surgeries were possible she was too weak to withstand and was confined to bed for nearly nine years. In 1966 she attempted to complete her part of work in the Raj Kapoor starrer “Chalaak” but that was also a strain for her fragile body. (Most of this information I have found on Wikipedia about an actress/ star who was on my dad’s list of favorites in those times).

The song with this post is from a movie that was shot sometime in the ‘50sand we have a very young Sunil Dutt romancing the princess “Jwala” (Madhubala). This movie is significant as it is the only movie of Madhubala that was shot in colour, “Mughal-e-azam” was partly in colour at the time of making, but “Jwala” was made as a colour movie. Sudhirji’s post gives us details about the movie which was essentially a ‘princess falling in love with a commoner who turns out to be a prince in exile’ story. Today’s song is written by Rajinder Krishan, tuned by Shankar -Jaikishan and sung by Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar.

February was the month of Madhubala’s birth and she would have turned 88. It is also the month she left the world at 36. We, her fans, can only fantasize how she would have looked as an octogenarian.
