Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was liked by my mother at the time when it was a regular on the radio waves. Specially the lines about aate mein mitti, chaawal mein kankar behisaab hai. I suppose those were the times when people had to rely on groceries from ration-shops (kids of the new millennium will not know what the fuss is all about). I remember people used to stand in queues to buy common things like soaps, oils, and other essentials. Aah! Those were different times and a different way of living.

The song with this post also reminds me of the discussion we had on the blog when the song Sun-Saahiba-Sun-Pyaar-Ki-Dhun/from ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’ (1986) was posted; about how Raj Kapoor used some of Hasrat Jaipuri’s lyrics in some of the movies he acted in post 1970. The sources that I referred to before writing this post gives credit to both Ravindra Jain and Hasrat Jaipuri for this song. We have knowledgeable followers of the blog who will enlighten us further on this.

A thought crossed my mind as I sat through the video of this song – if we see Rishi Kapoor on-screen these days it feels like we are seeing Raj Kapoor. The thought got confirmed recently after I saw ‘102 Not Out’ (2018) where Rishi plays a 75-year-old adorable, easily-irritable old man. I had to see the movie – how could I not see an Amitabh Bachchan – Rishi Kapoor movie :). Nice movie should be seen at least once.

With this post we remember the original showman of Bollywood – Raj Kapoor- on his 30th death anniversary. I remember reading about his demise in the newspaper on 3rd or 4th June – there were no instant messaging systems then and getting news about happenings in Mumbai, in local newspapers in Tamil Nadu (I had just begun my married life in a small town of TN that day) was generally a day or two late – different times and a different way of living.

Raj Kapoor had been conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke award that year. I remember seeing the event live on Doordarshan when he was assisted on to the stage. He collapsed at the event and was rushed to AIIMS New Delhi where he passed away almost a month later due to complications arising from his asthma. But his legacy lives in the form of his work as an actor, producer and director. His movies had great music and songs with meaningful lyrics. Whether it was “Sajan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo Khuda Ke Paas Jaana Hai” or “Ik Din Bik Jaayega Maati Ke Mol” – his songs conveyed truths of life. He spoke of the life of the common man in ‘Dil Ka Haal Suney Dilwaala‘  and of eternal love in “Main Na Rahoongi Tum Na Rahoge Phir Bhi Rahengi Nishaaniyan“. His songs had a worldwide appeal; it is said that his “Awaara Hoon” is remembered even today in Russia. What more do I say about this legend, it will be “chota munh aur badi baat”.

Let us get on to the song of the day. It is from the 1975 Naresh Kumar produced and directed ‘Do Jaasoos’. Raj Kapoor along with Rajendra Kumar played detectives out to trace a millionaire’s daughter and, in the process, catch a gang of smugglers led by Prem Chopra. Singer Shailendra Singh made his acting debut in this movie. Hasrat Jaipuri and Ravindra Jain are credited as lyricists and Jain was also the music director. Today’s song is in the voice of Mukesh and Rafi. Raj Kapoor considered Mukesh his singing voiceand Rafi was the chosen voice for Rajendra Kumar on a majority of occasions. The song is a take on the state of the nation at that point of time, but I think it is still relevant.

Remembering Raj Kapoortoday on his 30th anniversary of passing away.

[Ed Note: As per Geet Kosh, Hasrat Jaipuri and Ravindra Jain are jointly credited as lyricist for this song.]

 

Song – Do Jasoos Karen Mehsoos (Do Jaasoos) (1975) Singer – Mukesh, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri/ Ravindra Jain, MD – Ravindra Jain
Mukesh + Mohammed Rafi

Lyrics

do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
kaun hai sacha
kaun hai jhoota
har chehere pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

pyaas lagey to doodh piyo,
doodh mein paani milta hai
mandir mein bhi aaj diya
naqli ghee ka jalta hai
na asli mithaai hai
na asli malaai hai
maava hai sinhgaade ka,
kya zaalim halwaai hai
aate mein mitti chaawal mein kankar behisaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

zehar dawaa mein shaamil hai
zehar dawaa se behtar hai
zehar bhi naqli milta hai
marna bhi ab doobhar hai
desh ke sachche dushman hain
yeh jo milaawat karte hain
in ki badaulat kitne log
maut se pehle marte hain
aise logon ko pakadaana
sabse bada sawaab hai
kaun hai sacha,
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho socho
zara samajho samjho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

jab dekho hartaalen hain
jaane kiski chaalen hain
samjhaute ka naam nahi
agni mein ghee daale hain
deewaane toofan karen
logon ko hairaan karen
nehru ji ko bhool gaye
baapu ka apmaan karen
nehru ji ko bhool gaye,
baapu ka apmaan karen
apna hi ghar phoonk rahe hain
kaisa inqlaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho ho
zara samajho ho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji

do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
duniya badi kharaab hai

दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

प्यास लगे तो दूध पियो
दूध में पानी मिलता है
मंदिर में भी आज दिया
नकली घी का जलता है
ना असली मिठाई है
ना असली मलाई है
मावा है सिंघाड़े का
क्या ज़ालिम हलवाई है
आटे में मिट्टी चावल में कंकर बेहिसाब हैं
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

जहर दवा में शामिल है
जहर दवा से बेहतर है
जहर भी नकली मिलता है
मरना भी अब दूभर है
देश के सच्चे दुश्मन हैं
ये जो मिलावट करते हैं
इनकी बदौलत कितने लोग
मौत से पहले मरते हैं
ऐसे लोगों को पकड़ाना
सबसे बड़ा सवाब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

जब देखो हड़तालें हैं
जाने किसकी चालें हैं
समझौते का नाम नहीं
अग्नि में घी डालें हैं
दीवाने तूफान करें
लोगों को हैरान करें
नेहरू जी को भूल गए
बापू का अपमान करें
नेहरू जी को भूल गए
बापू का अपमान करें
अपना ही घर फूँक रहे हैं
कैसा इन्क़लाब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो हो
ज़रा समझो हो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी

दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

xईx  ‘उ’
“उन्हें मंज़िल नहीं मिलती जो किस्मत के सहारे हैं”

Ah yes, you notice that I skipped the vowel ‘ई’ and jumped straight to the vowel ‘उ’. The reason is that in all the film and non film songs that I could access and check, all songs starting with ‘ई’ have already been posted. With its typical usage profile in the language, there are very few songs that start with words that start with ‘ई’ in Rafi Sb’s list of songs. So I move on to the next vowel in sequence.

Many of the songs discussed in this blog are well known songs. But in this blog, I also discuss songs that are rare and not known to many people. In fact, this blog may be one of the very few places on internet where such songs may find mention.

“Roti” (1974) was a lovely Rajesh Khanna-Mumtaz movie. It had a good and different story line and it was a nice movie to watch.

“Qaidi no 911” (1959) was a “B grade” movie in the sense that it was an action thriller and it had Sheikh Mukhtar as action hero. When I say it was a B grade movie, I mean no disrespect. In fact, I think movies like this with Sheikh Mukhtar as hero were as good as the A grade action movies of 1970s. Yes, action movies had begun to be regarded as A grade by 1970s.

Manoj Kumar was a movie maker who would make movies with simplistic messages telling India was good, west was bad ( Purab aur paschim), Villagers were good, city folks were bad ( Upkaar ) etc. In this connection, here is this movie “Yaadgaar” (1970) where Manoj Kumar continues to shove his ideals down the throats of public.

It is a very common public lament that things were going from bad to worse, and people then long for the “good old day” when things were so nice.

As a small kid, I had heard about three monkeys of Gandhiji that symbolised- “bura mat suno, bura mat dekho, bura mat kaho.” So when I actually heard a song with the same lyrics, I naturally liked this song. It became one of my favourite songs of that era.
