The song under discussion is from “Sampoorna Dev 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 (Malaualam), 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, celebrate their new year on this day since many centuries! It means that all these diverse places, separated by vast distances have been culturally integrated since 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 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.

Blog Day :

4531 Post No. : 16093

Today, December 13th 2020 is the 34th Remembrance Day of Smita Patil who today would have been 65 years of age, perhaps donning the hat of a director.

What an incredible filmy journey Smita Patil had in a short span of about 12 years! She acted in 70 Hindi films of which 18 films were new wave films. In addition, she acted in about a dozen non-Hindi new wave films. At the age of 23, she got her first National Award for the Best Actress for her role in ‘Bhumika’ (1977). After 3 years, she was bestowed with another National Award for the Best Actress in ‘Chakra’ (1980). At the age of 29, she was one of the juries in the Montreal International Film Festival (1984). At the age of 30, She got Padma Shri Award.

She had achieved fame and glory in a short period and left her legacies for the new generations of film enthusiasts to appreciate. Other eminent actresses had taken much longer periods to achieve more or less the same status in their acting career. It is amazing to note that during her 12 years of filmy career, she worked with many eminent directors of new wave/parallel cinemas such as Shyam Benegal, Satyajit Ray (Bangla), Mrinal Sen (Bangla), G Arvindan (Malayalam), T S Nagabharana (Kannada), Jabbar Patel (Marathi), Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, Ketan Mehta (Gujarati and Hindi), Kumar Sahani, Muzaffar Ali, Saeed Mirza, Govind Nihalani etc. In the sphere of mainstream cinema, she acted under the directors such as Raj Khosla, B R Chopra, Ramesh Sippy, Mahesh Bhatt, Prakash Mehra, Mohan Kumar, J Om Prakash, J P Dutta etc.

Smita Patil (17/09/1955 – 13/12/1986) was born in Pune to a freedom fighter turned politician, Shivajirao Patil, and a social worker, Vidyatai Patil. After completion of her school in Pune, Smita Patil joined her parents in Mumbai by which time, her father had become a cabinet minister in Maharashtra. She joined St. Xavier’s College for graduation. It is during her college days she got selected as a Marathi news reader in Mumbai Doordarshan following the start of its telecast in October 1972. (I have also watched her occasionally reading Hindi news as well).

In one of his interviews, Shyam Benegal has revealed that after the successful release of his first film ‘Ankur’ (1974), he had planned for two films for which he was looking for a new girl having an earthly look (colloquially called ‘desi’ look). When he noticed Smita Patil as a Marathi newsreader on Doordarshan. he felt that she had an attractive presence and has the required photogenic face as a village girl. She fitted very well as a second lead in his next film ‘Nishaant’ (1975). Shyam Benegal met Smita’s parents through a common acquaintance. Her parents readily agreed but Smita point-blankly refused to work in films. Her mother, Vidyatai Patil who had seen ‘Ankur’ (1974), didn’t want her to refuse the offer off-hand. It took some time for her mother to convince Smita to work in the film ‘Nishaant’ (1975).

However, before ‘Nishaant’ (1975) could start, Shyam Benegal took her in ‘Charandas Chor’ (1975), a children’s film which would be a sort of familiarisation process for Smita Patil. According to Shyam Benegal, unlike Shabana Azmi, who was a FTII graduate in acting, Smita Patil had no formal training in acting. But she was a quick learner and an intuitive actor. The only problem with her was that she had multiple interests and as such during shooting, her mind would get diverted to activities other than acting. She was an ace photographer and always carried her camera during the shootings. During the break, she would take candid photographs of her co-stars. For the initial period of shooting for ‘Nishaant’ (1975), and ‘Manthan’ (1976), Shyam Benegal was not only the director but also had to behave like her school teacher for imposing the discipline.

Shyam Benegal says that despite all her sundry interest on the sets, Smita gave an excellent performance in ‘Nishaant’ (1975) as well as in ‘Manthan’ (1976). He narrated an anecdote during the shooting of the film in a village near Rajkot. A few college students had come to watch the shooting and were enquiring about the heroine. Smita Patil was sitting with four-five local women squatting against the wall. Someone from the unit pointed out in the direction of Smita Patil to the college students. They refused to believe him saying how could a heroine sit with local women? Her character in the film got so much assimilated with the local women that she could not be recognised as a heroine.

Shyam Benegal had initially considered Shabana Azmi for ‘Bhumika’ (1977). Later on, he felt that Smita’s body language and dialect seemed culturally apt for Hansa Wadkar’s character which required Smita’s visual presence from the beginning to the end. There were contradictions, complexities and also sexuality in the character of Hansa Wadkar and Smita had excellently handled all these in her role which fetched her the National Award for the Best Actress. According to Shyam Benegal, it was only after this award, Smita Patil took the acting career seriously.

After working under the direction of Shyam Bengal in ‘Kondura’ (1978) a bilingual film in Hindi and Telugu, there was a gap of 5 years during which Shyam Benegal had no occasion to take Smita Patil in his films. The reason could be that Shyam Benegal was associated with a couple of high budget films in which Smita Patil did not fit into the character.

‘Mandi’ (1983) was the last film Smita Patil worked under the direction of Shyam Benegal. In my view, this film is the best among Shyam Benegal’s films as also performance-wise the best of Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil for Shyam Benegal. Both of them have situations in the film in which they have to display different moods even in a single scene which only a few actors can perform to create a lasting impression on the audience .

With so much name and fame Smita Patil earned in acting in off-beat films, what were the reasons for her to seek the foray into mainstream commercial cinema? She did not fit into the idioms of commercial cinema. If I have inferred her personality on the basis of the articles written on her, a strong role rather than the money was her consideration to work in the films. I got some explanations for her entry into mainstream commercial cinema from a book ‘Smita Patil – A Brief Incandescence’ (2019) written by Maithili Rao. It was because of an incidence which hurt Smita Patil to such an extent that she decided to work in commercial cinema forthwith.

Sometime in 1981, one eminent successful director known for making ‘middle of the road’ films promised Smita Patil a role which she loved it. Later on, she came to know through the press that she was replaced by an actress who was also a successful star in commercial cinema. Within a few days from this incidence, Smita Patil signed two stupid films on a single day – ‘Badle Ki Aag’ (1982) and another one (probably,’Tajurba’ 1981). She wanted to prove that she was also a star material. Both these films did not fare well on the box office front.

Fortunately for Smita Patil, her next two mainstream films, Praksah Mehra’s ‘Namak Halaal’ (1982) followed by Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Shakti’ (1982), both with Amitabh Bachchan clicked at the box office which made Smita Patil a star-actor. After these successes, she did a spate of mainstream films, the notable films among them being ‘Aaj Ki Aawaaz’ (1984), ‘Ghulaami’ (1985), ‘Aakhir Kyun?’ (1985), ‘Amrit’ (1986). During this period, Smita Patil continued to work in parallel films such as ‘Ardh Satya’ (1983), ‘Tarang’ (1984), ‘Raavan’ (1984), ‘Giddh’ (1984), ‘Debshishu’ (1985) and ‘Mirch Masaala’ (1987). The end result was that in terms of numbers, her mainstream commercial films far exceeded her parallel films.

Smita Patil worked with Raj Babbar for the first time in ‘Tajurba’ (1981). It was during the shooting of ‘Bheegi Palkein’ (1982) when both of them developed a close relationship. Their closeness resulted in working together in as many as 20 films. Their affairs culminated into the marriage. Raj Babbar was already married to Nadira Babbar with two children.

Smita Patil died on December 13, 1986, 15 days after giving birth to her son Pratiek due to complications arising out of childbirth.

Shyam Benegal was back into new wave films by making a triology on Indian Muslim women with ‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubieda’ (2001). in a recent interview, he said that after Smita Patil, he has worked with many actresses but none of them came close to the versatilities of Smita Patil.

On the occasion of Smita Patil’s 34th Remembrance Day, I have selected a song from the film ‘Mandi’ (1983) which is directed by Shyam Benegal with Smita Patil in the role of Zeenat. It is a mujra song, ‘chubhti hai ye to nigodi mujhe bhaari angiya’ sung by Asha Bhosle and picturised on Smita Patil. This raunchy song is written by Insha which is set to music by Vanraj Bhatia.

The film starts with this mujra song as credit titles are rolling. One can see Naseeruddin Shah as a worker in the kotha, Shabana Azmi as Madam of the kotha and Harish Patel as police who is watching the mujra through the window. The mujra starts with the classic ‘sit-down’ pose with alluring expressions of Smita Patil. In the last part of the song, she gets up and steps into a vigorous dancing in kathak style.

According to Vanraj Bhatia, Asha Bhosle who had sung many songs for him, refused to sing this song by saying that it was a dirty song. She cancelled the recording three times. It was Ismat Chugtai who convinced her by saying that she had sung many kotha songs. Why not one more? The reason as to why Vanraj Bhatia persisted on Asha Bhosle even after she cancelled the recording three times could be that only Asha Bhosle could do justice to sing to sound like a raunchy song.

Although the name of the lyricist is mentioned as Insha, I feel that he is Syed Insha Allah Khan ‘Insha’ (1756-1817). He had used his nom de plume ‘Insha’ in some of his poems. He had also used in the song under discussion. Insha was a contemporary of Mir Taqi Mir in Mughal court. Later, he shifted to the court of Nawab of Awadh in Lucknow for getting a higher stipend. He was a multilingual poet who wrote poems in Urdu, Persian, Hindi, Punjabi, Kashmiri, Bengali, Marathi etc. I have gone through some of his ghazals and nazms. He seems to be a witty and unconventional poet. His prose work, ‘Rani Ketki Ki Kahaani’ is regarded as the first short story written in Hindi.

The video version has the full song interspersed with some dialogues, while the audio version is without dialogues and does not have the last stanza.

jhijak kar un nein kuchh ajab dol se

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 105# In Remembrance – Kishore Kumar #
—————————————- ——————————————-

Today 13th October’2020 is the thirty-third ‘Remembrance Day’ of the legendary singer Kishore Kumar.
It was on 13th October’1987 that he left this world at the age of fifty-eight only (04.08.1929-13.10.1987) leaving his family, followers and fans shocked, grief-stricken and heart-broken.

On this occasion as a tribute to him here is a song from ‘1976’ movie ‘Aaj Ka Ghar’.

I was not aware of this movie earlier until I came across this song a few years back. I guess this must be a lesser known or may be even an obscure movie (though it is now available on internet and uploaded three months back (the link which I saw).

‘Aaj Ka Ghar-1976’ was directed by Surendra Shailaj for ‘Shi Adarsh Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Jaymala. Surendra Sinha was the production controller for of this movie.

It had Jaymala, Shreeram Lagoo, Romesh Sharma, Helen, Lalita Pawar, Baby Mona, Jalal Agha, Madan Puri, I.S. Johar, Chandrashekhar, Ramesh Deo, Master Tito and A.K. Hangal. They were supported by K.K. Purohit, Ilaben, Neelam, Jassu Ben, Jagirdar, Nazmu, Lata Sahni, Chhotu, Vinay, Hansa, Jagmohan Juneja, Mohan Thakur, Duggal, A.U. Khatri and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by B.K. Adarsh whereas the basic idea was by Harin Mehta. Editing of this movie was done by Ravi Patankar. Dialogues and lyrics were written by M.G. Hashmat and revised dialogues were written by Surendra Shailaj (who directed the movie).

Music of this movie was composed by music duo Anil-Arun who composed music for many successful Marathi movies from 1971-1991. Both of them worked independently as well as a ‘team’ for Marathi movies. They also worked as assistants (music arranger) for S.D. Burman and also worked as assistants for may Hindi movies jointly as well as independently.

Anil of Anil Arun is the famous music composer and arranger Anil Mohile whereas Arun Paudwal (spouse of Anuradha Paudwal) was music director. However, as Arun Paudwal passed away in 1991 the pair was broken.

Arun Paudwal also composed music for the ‘1992’ movie ‘Meera Ka Mohan’ which was released after his death. And thereafter Anil Mohile continued to give music to Marathi Movies. He also arranged music for more than hundred programs of Lata Mangeshkar and many Hindi movies too. He passed away on 1st February’2012. Lata Mangeshkar penned a heartfelt condolence on his death as he was very close to the Mangeshkar family.

Coming back to the songs of today’s movie the movie had only three songs-one solo each by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal and one duet of Anuradha Paudwal and Adolf.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.12.1976.

Today’s song is a back-ground song sung by Kishore Kumar and written by M.G. Hashmat. Music is composed by Anil-Arun (I guess this the only Hindi movie they jointly composed music for).

They make their debut on the blog with the movie also making its debut on the blog.

In the few initial posts in this series I had presented some background songs sung by Kishore Kumar. I think it would be interesting to compile a list of such background songs he sung in Hindi movies and that gives us an interesting topic for another post in the future.

Secondly when I came back from Kenya after finishing the project there, I had planned that I will surely visit Khandwa on at least two important dates i.e. 4th August and 13th October as the Kishore fans there always have special programs on these dates, however due to the current situation I doubt if the programs would be held there.

Also couple of years back we had heard that the ancestral home of Kishore Kumar in Khandwa is either sold or bought by somebody and it is going to be renovated due to its dilapidated condition. I am not aware of its present status now(or if it has been taken over by the state government as some rumors were there?). But I will always cherish the memories my earlier visits to Khandwa to this place and the Kishore Kumar memorial there on the Khandwa-Indore road.

Remembering the ‘versatile genius’ Abhas Kumar Ganguly – Kishore Kumar today and paying our tributes, let us listen to one of his songs …

I have not watched this movie. But, from the video of the song available it seems that the song gets played in parts in the movie at various situations and twists and turns in the story of the movie.

However, the happy ‘antaraa’ is played in the beginning of the movie (with titles, as I have watched the titles) and is repeated in the end of the movie where we have a ‘happy ending’ 🙂

I hope that you like this song …

Lyrics

(played in background with titles)

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar
Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar
Aaj ka ye ghar
aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraake pee gaya
Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraake pee gaya
Kaaton se bhi uljha magar
Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal
Zindagi ka Safar
Dekh lo ik nazar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

(Lyrics as per video link)

Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar
Jaane kyon lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar
Baar baar aansuon ne bheegoyi nazar
Jaane kyon lut gaya aa aaj ka ye ghar
aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein
Kaisi ye aandhi chali
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aaj khushiyon ke chaman mein
Kaisi ye aandhi chali
Kyon tod di jhonkon ne
Gham ke shaakh se khilti kali
Chal diya baaghbaan bhi
Kali raund kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Aur koi chhod jaata
To na yoon hota gila
Ae aasmaan ye to bataa
Ye kis khata ki di sazaa
Kyun gaya apna hi dil mera tod kar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Baar baar aansuon ne bhigoyi nazar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

meri mamtaa ki nishaani ee
bin mitaaye mit gayi
meri mamtaa ki nishaani ee
bin mitaaye mit gayi
ik deep ki thhi raushni
kyon bin bujhaaye bujh gayi ee
naa wo geet (?)
naa wo geet
naa wo dhun
naa wo swar
Jaane kyun lut gaya aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa aa ye ghar

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa

Gardishon mein waqt ki hain
Zindagi ke kaafile ae ae
Aa aa aa aa aa
Gardishon mein waqt ki hain
Zindagi ke kaafile
Dil se lagaaya kal jinhen
Hain aaj unse faasle
Chha gaya andhkaar
Ab main jaaun kidhar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

zindagi ki kashmakash se
toot kar jaaun kahaan
main chhoot kar is qaid se
jaaun bhi to jaaun kahaan
sholaa ban jal uthhi ee
meri shaam o sahar
Jaane kyun lut gaya
Aaj ka aa ye ghar
Aaj ka aa ye ghar

Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Aansuon ka zehar jo bhi
Muskuraa ke pee gaya
Kaanton se bhi uljha magar
Wo phool ban ke jee gaya
Ho gaya phir safal
Zindagi ka Safar
Dekh lo ik nazar

Blog Day : 4468 Post No. : 15961

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 101 # Remembering Salil Chowdhury #
————————————————————————————

Today 5th September 2020 is the twenty-fifth (19 November 1922 – 5 September 1995) ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ great music director and also lyricist, writer and poet Salil Chowdhary.

Salil Chowdhury has given us some of the unforgettable and even immortal songs in movies like ‘Do Bigha Zameen-1953’, ‘Naukri-1954’, ‘Jaagte Raho-1956’, ‘Madhumati-1958’, ‘Parakh-1960’, ‘Chhayaa-1961’, ‘Anand-1971’, ‘Mere Apne-1971’, ‘Rajnigandha-1974’ and many many others. There is a long list of his achievements and recognitions which very well deserved a detailed post. However today we will discuss a lesser known movie where music is composed by him.

Today’s song is from a movie ‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’.

I came across this song almost seven years back and it is lying pending since then. That time the very less information was available with me about his movie. After that I got information from HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The movie had also become available online for some time before becoming unavailable again.

Here are the details about his movie.

‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Lakshmi Enterprise’ and ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee Unit’. Saroj Bannerjee, Susheela Kamat, Nitin Mukesh and Shakeel Chandra were assistant directors. The movie was presented by Ashok Hira and Kishore Kanungo

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Nityanand Dutt and D.N. Mukherjee were his associates.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Gulzar. Additional scenes were written by Salil Chowdhary and lyrics were written by Yogesh.

Das Dhaimade was the Editor in chief for this movie whereas Subhash Gupta was the sound editor. Editing was done by Shanker Pradhan, Shreedhar Mishra, Khan Zaman Khan and Anil Pradhan. Biren Tripathy was the Dialogue director of this movie. Anil Ghosh was the associate director and controller of production.

This movie had Vijay Arora, Robi Ghosh, Meeta Faiyyaz, Naarghita, Kumud Damle, Meher Banu, Rajni Bala, Sabeena, Sunita, Tun Tun. Kali Bannerjee, Utpal Dutt, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee. They were supported by S. N. Banerjee, Raj Verma, Bhola, Noni, Tarun Ghosh, Mukund Babu, Sudha, Sarita Devi, Shreedhar, Jagjit, Meena Rai and others.

Manna Dey, Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita had given their voice to the two songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Salil Chowdhury. Kanu Ghosh and Shashikant assisted him in music.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.11.1972.

Today’s song is a background song played while the titles of the movie are rolling. Earlier video links were available which now seem to have become obsolete and only the audio of this song is available.

This song is sung by Manna Dey. This movie had total two songs and the other song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Salil Chowdhury.

With this song ‘Sabse Badaa Suh-1972’ makes its debut on the blog.

“Raagini”(1958) was produced by Ashok Kumar and Ganesh and directed by Rakhan for Ashok Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Padmini, Jabeen Jaleel, Balam, Sundar, Nazeer Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Amir Banu, Protima Devi, Rajendra, Master Vinod (Mehra), Baby Leela, Navami, Ifthikhar, Jamal, Mirajkar, Kathana, Bhardwaj, Narbada Shankar, Master Raja etc in it.

This “social” movie was quite an entertaining movie, as can be judged from the songs of the movie. This movie had as many as twelve songs in it. Eleven songs have been covered so far. Here are the details of these songs :-

15383 Chhed diye mere dil ke taar kyun Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan, Ustaad Fateh Ali Khan 16 Jan 2020 Kishore Kumar and Anand Pal lip syncing in the voices of classical singers
15813 Tujhe dekh ke machal gaya aaj mera mann Asha Bhonsle 16 Jan 2020

The movie had Kishore Kumar and one would expect him to sing for himself. He did that in four songs. In addition, he lip synced a song in Rafi’s voice.

But that is not all. There is another song in the movie which is sung by doyens of Hindustani classical music namely Ustaad Amaanat Ali Khan and Ustaad Fateh Ali Khan. This song is lip synced on screen by Kishore Kumar and Anand Pal.

Finding classically trained Naushad using the voices of Ustaads of Hindustani classical music is expected, but O P Nayyar, who was supposedly untrained in Hindustani classical music actually got Ustaads to sing for his movie is something unexpected.

Naushad of course, got Ustaad Amir Khan to sing in “Baiju Baawra”(1952), as also Pt D V Paluskar. In “Mughal e Azam”(1960) he got Ustaad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. We had also witnesed Pt Bhimsen Joshi singing in “Basant Bahaar”(1956).

Come to think of it, the title “Raagini” itself is a derivative of “Raag”. The movie apparently had Kishore Kumar playing a musician.

The movie begins with a classical song sung by Ustaad amir Khan while titles roll in. and that “movie opening” song is the only song from the movie which is not yet covered.

So, here is that twelfth and final song from “Raagini”(1958) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Ustaad Amir Khan. Lyricist is not known. O P Nayyar is of course credited as the music director.

A comment in youtube suggests that this song is in Raag Lalit, a morning raag.

I have a feeling that “Raagini”(1958) for O P Nayyar must haave been a labour of love, that gave been great creative satisfaction.

With this song, all the songs of “Raagini”(1958) are covered in the blog and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog.

Every 23rd January we pay our tributes to the great visionary, a courageous and brave leader of our freedom struggle Netaji Subhashchandra Bose.

All of us are aware of his biographical details and details about his fight for the freedom of people of India and how he led his own fight in the way he thought was the best way to deal with the ‘British Empire’ then.

In one of my earlier posts on the blog here we have also discussed about the various movies based on the life of Netaji Subhashchandra Bose.

While we all celebrate his birth anniversary on 23rd January there are different versions about his last days (16 to 18th Aug 1945) and the last journey that he took from Taiwan to fly to Russia where he thought he would get support from the Russians in his fight against the Britishers.

However, 18th August 1945 is mentioned as that ‘unfortunate’ day in the history of ‘freedom struggle’ of India when Netaji Subhashchandra Bose was last seen alive. Remembering him and paying our tributes to him here is a song from the 1966 movie ‘Netaji Subhashchandra Bose’.

Earlier only audio of this song was available. Now I have came across a video clip of this song which shows this song as a background song with the ‘titles’ of the movie.

(However, the wordings of the song suggest that it must have been based during his last few years when after Gandhiji’s ‘do or die’ call Netaji Subhashchandra Bose was inclined towards Gandhiji and was thinking of writing a letter to him extending his support.)

“Netaji Subhashchandra Bose-1966’ was directed by Hemen Gupta for ‘Adarshlok’. It had Abhi Bhattacharya, Jaymala, Bipin Gupta, Ulhas, Padma Devi, Niranjan Sharma, N.R. Madholkar, Maxworth, Leela Mishra, Rajeshwar Dayal, Sudharshan Sethi, Chand, Ramesh Sharma, Arvind Sharma, Iqbal, Jadish Kanwal, Kishan Raj, Lila Jaywant, Rehana, Jamuna, Snehmala, Madhurika, Meenakshi, Moni Chatterjee, Kant Kumar, Paresh Kumar, Munshi Niyamatulla, Mohan Kaul, Jaisingh Sawant, Kamal Kapoor, Bazeed Khan, K.C. Supariwala, Panna Kapoor, Murray, Woolga, Harry, Peace, Kelly and others.

Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Adarsh while Editing of this movie was done by I.M. Kunnu.

This movie had five songs written by Kavi Pradeep and composed to music by Salil Choudhary. Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Hemant Kumar and Savita Bannerjee had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far four songs of this movie have been posted on the blog as following;

S.No. Song Title Posted on
01 Janmbhoomi maa main yahaan tu wahaan 23.01.2014
02 Suno re suno … ye Subhash ki katha 23.01.2015
03 Jhankaaro jhankaaro agneeveena 23.01.2017
04 Dushmanon saavdhaan 23.01.2020

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. Lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep and music is composed by Salil Choudhary.

With this song all songs from the movie ‘Netaji Subhashchandra Bose-1966’ have been covered on the blog.

Let us listen to this poignant song.

Song-Ab jung shuru kal se (Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kavi Pradeep, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

ab jung shuru kal se
ab kal se hai sangraam
sweekaar karo baapu
ye Subhash ka pranaam
ab jung shuru kal se

sevak ye tumhaara ab

अब जंग शुरू कल से

ज्वाला के पथ का राही

आशीष तुम मुझे दो

माँ की दिवाली के हित
खेलेंगे कल से होली
हम जा रहे हैं करने
रौशन वतन का नाम

अब जंग शुरू कल से …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No.55
———————————————————————————–

Today is 15 august 2020, the 74th independence day of India. 10 years ago, on the occasion of 64th independence day of India, this blog had covered as many as eight patriotic songs. Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks

As can be seen from above, one song from “Samadhi”(1950) still remains to be posted. It is this to be covered. And that song is an appropriate song for the occasion. This movie ‘Samadhi’ (1950) was about the freedom struggle of India and about Subhash Chandra’s Bose. No wonder that the songs of this movie were mostly patriotic songs as can be seen from the list of the songs of this movie covered in the blog:-

Song Remarks
Gore gore o baanke chhore
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa
Abhi shaam aayegi niklenge taare
Wo paas aa rahe hain ham door jaa rahe hain
Idhar muhabbat udhar zamaaana
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidaan ki ek kahaani

Here is this seventh and final song from “Samadhi” to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist of this song with resembles Indian national anthem. Music is composed by C Ramchandra. The tune resembles the tune of national anthem.

[Editor’s Note: As per the information provided by Sadanand ji, the original authors of this song are Mumtaz Hussain and Colonel Abid Hussain Saffarani of INA. The song has been adapted for this film, and Rajinder Krishan has added the following three lines only,

sab milkar Hind pukaaren
Jai Aazaad Hind ke naare
pyaara desh hamaara

The film credits do not acknowledge the original lyricists and the original composer of this song.]

I take this opportunity to greet each and everyone a happy 74th independence day.

Lyrics of this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

With this song, all songs of ‘Samadhi’ (1950) get covered in the blog and the movie gets YIPPEEE’D.

शुभ सुख चैन की बरखा बरसे

प्यारा देश हमारा

सूरन बन कर जग पर चमके
भारत नाम सुभागा

जय जय जय जय हो

Hullo Atuldom

Ideally this post should have come last year, when this veteran of about a few hundred movies, turned 80. But then that has not happened.
I have decided that we shall not let the occasion go unnoticed. And in south India, the celebration for a person turning 80 is normally on completing 81, as the system of calculating the auspicious date to celebrate says that the person should have witnessed a 1000 full moons in his life, with the life being said to have started after the 1st birthday. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Whatever be the logic, the celebration called “Sadabhishekam” is after the person crosses 81 and our celebrity is turning 81 today. So here we are wishing this veteran a Happy 81st birthday.

He was born Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jafri on 29th March 1939 in Amritsar. He made his first screen appearance at the young age of 11 or 12. B.R.Chopra’s “Afsana” was the starting point followed by “Ab Dilli Door Nahin”, “Hum Panchi ek Daal ke”, “Do Bigha Zameen”, “Aar Paar” etc. AVM’s “Bhabhi” saw him in his first role of a grownup. And then there was no looking back and we have seen him in movies till 2017- a really long career. He played a leading man in a few movies before finding his comic timing in “Brahmachari”.

He has had many famous songs filmed on him -“Paas baitho tabiyat bahal jayegi”, “In pyar ki raahon mein”, we have seen him shaking a leg when Shamshad Begum sang, for Kumkum’s debut in movies, “kabhi aar kabhi paar”. This post introduces us to the person whose 81st birthday it is today.

Yes we are wishing “Soorma Bhopali” of Sholay a.k.a father of Jaaved and Naaved Jaafri of ‘Booogie Boogie’ fame. Simply put we are celebrating comedian Jagdeep’s birthday.

He may have done around 100 movies prior to “Sholay” but when Salim-Javed wrote the character of ‘Soorma Bhopali’ it changed Jagdeep’s fortunes forever. He was seen in many movies after “Sholay” too but very few remember him as the sidekick of Gopi (Mithun Chakravarty) ‘Kabari” in Surakksha”” (1979); ‘Chandu alias James Bond’ in the 1977 release “Agent Vinod”; he had a tiny-blink-n-miss role in Feroz Khan’s “Qurbani”. Jagdeep was forever requested to reappraise his Soorma Bhopali, atleast once, in many subsequent movies. He himself wrote and directed a movie with the title “Soorma Bhopali” in 1988. I don’t know much about that movie other than the fact that it had a whole lot of Jagdeep’s co-actors from “Sholay” making guest and special appearances in that movie. IMDB.com gives the list of actors as Agha, Amitabh Bachchan, Master Bhagwan, Birbal, Brahmachari, Danny, Dharmendra; Aruna Irani appears to be the sole female in the starcast.

I have chosen a song from this 1988 movie to accompany this post. The music directors were Dilip Sen- Sameer Sen and songs were written by Asad Bhopali, Jaan Nissar Akhtar and Jagdeep himself has written a song. It was a difficult task selecting a song from this movie as Jagdeep has also sung a few songs in the movie. But I finally decided that we will have a song that accompanies the movie’s credits that is what I have deduced from the available clip. This song is sung by Mohd Aziz and Jagdeep and Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. As I was writing the lyrics I caught the names of lot more actors than those that I have mentioned who were common to Sholay and this movie.

Here is wishing our very own Soorma Bhopali, who had a one-liner to his character in Sholay that said “Soorma Bhopali aise nahin hai”, A very Healthy and happy Birthday.


Song-Main hoon Soorma Bhopali (Soorma Bhopali)(1988) Singer-Md Aziz , Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Dilip Sen Samir Sen
Jagdeep

Lyrics

assalaam vaalekkum
aadaab arz hai

aao hanste hanste
aur jaao hanste hanste
paan khaalo
aur issi baat pe bajaao taali

ke main hoon soorma bhopali
arre haan soorma bhopali
ke main hoon soorma bhopali
miyaan haan soorma bhopali
main na rahoon Bhopal mein

main hoon soorma bhopali
miyaan haan soorma bhopali

yeh mera bhopal hai
jo pyaar se maalaamaal hai
bairagadh se T T Nagar tak
jo hai yahaan khush-haal hai
moti masjid jaama masjid
Taj ul Masjid dekh kar
jo bhi dekhe birla mandir
chamak uthhe hai uski nazar
kamlapati raani ka mahal hai
beech mein donon taalon ke
jaise meri naak hai pyaare
beech mein donon gaalon ke
meri chaal anokhi sabse
meri chaal anokhi sabse
meri ada hai niraali ee ee
main hoon soorma bhopali
miyaan haan soorma bhopali

meri cycle meri dulhan hai
isko saja ke rakhta hoon
ise akela jab bhi chhodoon
taala laga ke rakhta hoon
logon meri soorat pe na jaao
dil hai mera aaine jaisa
mujhse meri ammi ne kahaa thha
beta haath ka mail hai paisa

paise ki parwaah na karna
bhale kaam mein rehna aage
uske karam par rakhna bharosa
woh jab chaahe kismat jaage
ooparwaala
ooparwaala kadam kadam par
kare teri rakhwaali ee ee
main hoon soorma bhopali
arre haan soorma bhopali
main na rahoon bhopal mein
toh sheher lage hai khaali ee ee
main hoon soorma bhopali
miyaan haan soorma bhopali
main hoon soorma bhopali
miyaan haan soorma bhopali
