“Mahasati Behula”(1964) was directed by Shanti Kumar for Adarshlok, Bombay. The movie had Mahipal, Jaimala, Lalita Pawar, Niranjan Sharma, Ulhas, Mridula etc in it.

This by now forgotten mythological movie had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Today (5 July 2020) is the 38th remembrance day of Bharat Vyas (6 January 1918-5 July 1982 ). As a tribute to this legendary lyricist, who worked mostly in mythological movies, here is another song from “Mahasati Behula”(1964).

Like the first song, this song too is a duet which is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Mukesh. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Shivram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that this song is picturised on Mahipal and Jaimala.

This song mentions “poonam ka chaand” and that makes this song a topical song, seeing that today is poornima (guru poornima). In addition, today this poonam ka chaand is also figuring in a chandragrahan, the third chandragrahan for the year 2020.

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

ना कजरे की धार
ना मोतियों के हार
ना कोई किया सिंगार 
फिर भी कितनी सुंदर हो
तुम कितनी सुन्दर हो

Yes, this song is from film ‘Mohra’ (1994). Ah but I am not bringing on the film version of the song.

This very song was earlier and originally sung by Mukesh in his inimitable voice in the sixties. The film for which he had sang never reached proper production stages. The song has since remained and gets counted amongst the many NFS that he sang. There are almost no details available about Mukesh version and hence this post will be quite short and devoid of any tables, histograms etc. 🙂

But then, I do not want to make the post too short either and so let me write something about the 1994 film which I have never seen. I am told it had a rather unexpected climax and so pondering if I should watch only the ending. 🙂

I consider myself qualified to write about the 1994 film as it is yet to make its debut on the blog which is quite surprising. There is a well-established wiki page of the movie on the net and I request interested readers to visit it for much of the details.

One of the apparent reasons as to why the song sung by Mukesh was included in the film could be probably because Viju Shah the music director of the film is the son of music director Kalyanji Virji Shah of composer duo Kalyanji Anandji. The lyric writer obviously remained Indeewar.

The film has 3-4 versions of the song sung by Pankaj Udhas and Sandhana Sargam.  All these years, I was under the impression that at least the romantic version was picturised on Raveena Tandon but it does not seem to be.

And, with such poor knowledge of “new films”, I am happy I seldom venture into this rather unfamiliar territory. I am sure more knowledgeable contributors will take up the film song and write in detail about the many versions.

As usual, I reached out to Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, the Surat based complier of Mukesh Geetkosh to see if I could get more details about the Mukesh version. He gave several leads such as searching the register where song was to be recorded, contacting any of the Kalyanji-Anandji’s orchestra team etc. He has also written to me stating that he has contacted Anandji, Indeewar, Mohnish Behl etc to get some leads but to no avail. All he remembers is the film being about Navagraha. I thank him for the continuous support and help I receive.

All these efforts of tracing the film that never took off being quite an ordeal, I decided to go ahead and represent this post on the blog. What is more important is that the complete song sung by Mukesh is available on several platforms and is a treat to listen.

Song – Na Kajre Ki Dhaar, Na Motiyon Ke Haar  (NFS-Mukesh) (1960s) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Indiwar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

tu taazgi phoolon ki
kya saadgi ka kehna
tu taazgi phoolon ki
kya saadgi ka kehna
singaar tera yauwan
yauwan hi tera gehna
teri soorat jaise moorat
main dekhoon baar baar
na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

tera ang sachcha sona
muskaan sachche moti
tera ang sachcha sona
muskaan sachche moti
tere honth hain madhushala
tu roop ki hai jyoti
ude khushboo jab chale tu
boley to bajey sitaar
na kajre ki dhaar
na motiyon ke haar
na koi kiya singaar
phir bhi kitni sunder ho
tum kitni sunder ho

तुम कितनी सुंदर हो

ना कजरे की धार

तू ताज़गी फूलों की
क्या सादगी का कहना
तू ताज़गी फूलों की
क्या सादगी का कहना
सिंगार तेरा यौवन
यौवन ही तेरा गहना
तेरी सूरत जैसे मूरत
मैं देखूँ बार बार
ना कजरे की धार
ना मोतियों के हार

फिर भी कितनी सुंदर हो
तुम कितनी सुंदर हो

तेरा अंग सच्चा सोना
मुस्कान सच्चे मोती
तेरा अंग सच्चा सोना
मुस्कान सच्चे मोती
तेरे होंठ हैं मधुशाला
तू रूप की है ज्योति
उड़े खुशबू जब चले तू
बोले तो बजे सितार
ना कजरे की धार
ना मोतियों के हार
ना कोई किया सिंगार
फिर भी कितनी सुंदर हो
तुम कितनी सुंदर हो

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 33
—————————————————————————

When I look back at 2010, the blog posting rate was surprisingly similar to the post rate of 2020. Every day one or two posts appeared during 2010. The blog clocked around 60 odd posts per month. Same is happening even in 2020.

Coming to this date 10 years ago, viz 3 june 2010, two posts were discussed in the blog as below :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tere binaa zindagi se koi shikwa nahin Aandhi (1975) All songs covered
Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake

Sunahri Naagin (1963) 07 of 08 songs posted

“Sunahri Naagin-1963” was directed by Babubhai Mistry for Everest Pictures, Bombay. Its story and screenplay were by Pt Madhur and Vishwanath Pandey. Dialogues were by C K Mast. It was a fantasy movie which had Mahipal, Helen, Sulochana, Anwar Hussain, Sapru, Priti Bala aka Zeb Rehman, Ulhas, Paul Sharma, Jeevankala, Bela Bose, Madhumati, Sheela Kashmiri, Kamal Mehra etc in it.

When I was going through the above, I thought that I was going through the credits of “Parasmani”(1963). Both movies were created by the same team, and even the star cast had much in common. Mahipal was the hero in both the movies, Here in ‘Sunahri Naagin'(1963), we have Helen in female lead instead of Geetanjali.

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the seven songs covered in the blog:-

S N Song Post number in blog Date of posting
1 Been na bajaana jaadu na jagaanaa 2342 12-March-2010
2 Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon 2345 14-March-2010
3 Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke 2449 16-March-2010
4 Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake 2511 3-June-2010
5 Main to ho gayi re badnaam 14495 16-July-2018
6 Yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye 15482 16-March-2020
7 Donon haathhon se dil kyun sambhaala hai 15493 24-March-2020

From the table, it can be seen that the movie made its debut in march 2010 and I discussed three songs from the movie in that month. Another song was discussed in june 2010. Then this movie was not taken up again in the blog for eight years.

This year, two songs have been discussed and one of these two songs was a Blog Ten Year Challenge song.

Today, another blog ten year challenge opportunity presents itself. On this occasion, here is this lovely song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963). It is sung by Mukesh and Lata. The song is picturised on Mahipal and Helen. This song appears to be the song corresponding to Chori chori jo tumse mili to log kyaa kahenge of “Parasmani”(1963).

Not only are the singers same in the two songs, even the lyricist 9Farooque Kaiser is the same. Parasmani had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Here Kalyanji Anandji are the music director. Though HFGK is silent about the assistant music directors, it appears to me that Laxmikant Pyarelal may have been the assistant music director in this movie. I can notice Laxmikant Pyarelal stamp in this song.

It is a lovely song to listen to. Its lyrics and details were sent jointly by Prakashchandra and Avinash Scrapwala. Prakashchandra gave valuable background information on this movie whereas Avinash Scrapwala was the catalyst behind this Blog Ten Year Challenge Post.

With this song, all the eight songs of “Sunahri Naagin”(1963) are covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEEED in the blog. I notice that “Parasmani”(1963) too had been YIPPEED with its equivalent song viz Chori chori jo tumse mili to log kyaa kahenge . Such coincidences occur in the blog all the time.

Blog Day: 4331 Post No.: 15625

Today, May 27, 2020 is the 56th Remembrance Day of India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. I also remember this day for two other reasons. First, it was the day when my SSC result was out in the morning and second, I had to attend my maternal uncle’s marriage. That day was almost like current lockdown situation except that the trains were running and we could go out. A pall of gloom was visible on almost every one’s faces I met at the marriage. The question in their mind was ‘After Nehru, Who?

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru was a visionary and the architect of modern India. For a newly independent country, charting of a growth path was necessary. The policies were directed towards creating infrastructure facilities like construction of major dams, power plants and setting up of heavy industries like steel plants, engineering and chemicals. Higher educational institutes like Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs), the Indian Institute of Management (IIMs) and other scientific institutes like All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMs) were set up. He was also the architect of non-alignment movement during the cold-war years.

There were also brickbats for Pandit Nehru’s policies. His handling of Kashmir issue in 1948 and his China policies were highly criticised. Also, the food crisis in the 1960s were blamed for not giving importance to the agricultural sector in the Five-year plans. The foremost critics of Nehruvian policies in those days were Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia of Socialist Party, Hem Barua, H V Kamath and Barrister Nath Pai of Praja Socialist Party, Balraj Madhok of Jan Sangh and Hiren Mukherjee of Communist Party of India. Despite their relatively much lower number of seats in the parliaments, they were forces to reckon with as the leaders from the opposition parties.

I remember in my teen that during the parliament sessions that the newspapers will carry front-page news of the criticism of Government’s policies by one or more of the names of the leaders I mentioned above. Some of these names may not ring bell to the new generations. Most of them were good orators. It was the charismatic presence of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru who aptly handled heated debate upholding the democratic norms in the parliament.

After the General Election of 1957, one more strong critic of Pandit Nehru’s policies entered the Lok Sabha. He was 33-year old Atal Bihari Vajpayee of Jan Sangh. There used to be heated arguments between the young Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Pandit Nehru in Lok Sabha. One of the anecdotes which Atal Bihari Vajpayee revealed during a ‘no confidence’ motion against his Government in 1996, proves that despite serious differences, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s admired Atal ji’s performance in the Lok Sabha. Let us read in Vajpayee’s own words which he spoke in Hindi (translated by me in English):

Once during the heated debate in the Lok Sabha, I told Nehru ji that he had a mixed personality in which he was both Churchill and Chamberlain (former prime ministers of the U K – first was supposed to be hawkish and the second dovish in crisis management). Nehru ji did not get angry. In the evening, I attended at a function organised for a visiting foreign dignitary. At the venue, Nehru ji saw me and called at his place to complement me for my rousing speech of that day in the Lok Sabha. He took me to one of the foreign dignitaries and introduced me by saying ‘he is a young leader from the opposition who always criticises me, but I see in him a great future’.

And what a great statesman Atal Bihari was as well. In 1977, when Atal Bihari Vajpayee became the Foreign Minister, he came to South Block to take charge of his ministry. While walking in the lobby of his office, he noticed that Nehru ji’s portrait was missing from the wall. He called his officials and asked them as to what happened to the portrait. There was no answer. After some time, he found that Nehru ji’ portrait was back in its place. Both these anecdotes indicate the greatness of both these leaders and their relationship in which there was no malice despite serious political differences.

Some of the IPTA members belonging to Hindi film fraternity were also the critics of the Nehruvian policies. Majrooh Sultanpuri in 1948 wrote a poem calling Pandit Nahru a stooge of Hitler and the slave of the Commonwealth for which he was arrested in 1949 by the then Chief Minister of Bombay State, Morarji Desai. Sahir Ludhianvi’s satirical song, cheen o arab hamaara hindustaan hamaara had an implicit criticism of the Government’s policies for widening the gap between ‘haves’ and ‘haves not’.

Shailendra was also the critics of Nehru. He had written a sarcastic poem on Nehru’s visit to the UK in June 1953 to attend the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth. In today’s scenario, probably, Shailendra would have become a persona non grata in South Block. But with Pandit Nehru, it was different. The following anecdote which I read on the facebook page of Dinesh Shankar Shailendra, the youngest son of Shailendra, throws some light which indicates that Pandit Nehru had no malice towards his critics.

Sometime after the Chinese aggression in October 1962, Pandit Nehru invited some members of Indian Film Industry to Delhi to personally thank them for doing programmes for the Indian Army to boost their moral and also raise funds. Raj Kapoor with his core team comprising Shankar-Jaikishan, Mukesh, Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra were also the guests. All the guests were waiting at the venue but Nehru ji got delayed. A bored Shailendra told Raj Kapoor that he was tired of waiting and would like to go back to his hotel room. He also said that there were so many important guests and he would not be missed. Raj Kapoor agreed.

After some time, Pandit Nehru arrived and personally met all his guests. While talking to Raj Kapoor, Pandit Nehru suddenly asked ‘Where is Shailendra? – the man who wrote hothon pe sachchaayi rehti hai, jis desh mein ganga behti hai. Raj Kapoor was in a quandary. He immediately sent Shankar to bring Shailendra from his hotel room which he did. A relieved Raj Kapoor proudly introduced Shailendra to Pandit Nehru who insisted getting photographed exclusively with Shailendra. Nehru ji told Shailendra that he would personally sign the picture and send it to him which he did.

It was, therefore, no surprise that the finest tributes to Pandit Nehru following his death on May 27, 1964 came from his critics. After reading them, I feel that they have all come from the bottom of their hearts and also out of immense respect for him. Kaifi Azmi wrote a heart-felt song, meri aawaaz suno, pyaar ka raag suno for ‘Naunihaal’ (1967). He also wrote a nazm, Nehru in 1964. Sahir Ludhianvi wrote a nazm, Jawaharlal Nehru soon after the death of Pandit Nehru.

Pandit Nehru was a great admirer of Hindi and Urdu poetry. He was a fan of poets like Josh Malihabadi, Firaq Gorakhpuri, Suryakant Tripathi Nirala and Harivanshrai Bachchan with whom he used to interact with them on poetry. There are anecdotes on Pandit Nehru’s friendship with these poets which also reveal that Pandit Nehru took criticism from his friends without malice towards them.

Pandit Nehru was instrumental in setting up of Children’s Film Society of India in 1955. He had invited Kidar Sharma to direct the first film for the children, ‘Jaldeep’ (1956). The film won the award of the best film under children’s film category at Cannes Film Festival in 1957. For the next children’s film, ‘Bachhon Se Baaten’ (1957), Kidar Sharma requested Nehru ji as a part of the film. One can say that Pandit Nehru acted in a film where he was the main actor. [Source: Kidar Sharma’s autobiography, ‘One And Lonely Kidar Sharma’ (2002)].

Shailendra wrote a non-film song as a tribute to Jawaharlal Nehru. On the occasion of the 56th Remembrance Day of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, I am presenting the same non-film song ‘phool khilega baaghon mein’ (1964) which is rendered by Mukesh. The song is set to music by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Chacha Nehru

phool khilega baaghon mein
jab tak gulaab kaa pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
Nehru naam tumhaara
jab tak hai iss jag mein
chanda suraj kaa ujiyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

humko hai dukh humne kho daala apna humjholi
jiske saath deewaali thhi uske sang khelen holi
kaun bada ab hum jaise ban ke khilwaad karega
pyaar karega jhagdega jhoothi taqraar karega
khilega jag ke aangan mein
jab tak bachpan pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

kaun manga kar dega humko bhaalu haathi cheete
bachpan ke din apne to bachpan se pehle beete
kaun hamen chitti likhega pyaar bhari bhaasha mein
haay tumhen bhi hum likh paate kaash aur tum jeete
jab tak bachche muskaayenge youn nirmal jaldhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

wo muskaan hamaare jaisi hriday jeetne waali
wo gussa jo sheetal hai jaise barkha matwaali
wo ghudki jo sikhlaati hai sabak yaad kar lena
wo baaten jaise bikhraaye phool phool ki daali
yaad aayengi jab tak dukh mein degi yaad sahaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

phool khilega baaghon mein jab tak gulaab ka pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

chale gaye ho lekin lagta hai tum yahin chhupe ho
jaise hum bachchon se aankh micholi khel rahe ho
bagiyaa ke phoolon mein bikhri hai muskaan tumhaari
nadiyon ke sang chalte ho parvat ke saath khade ho
jab tak baaki hai duniya mein jo kuchh bhi hai pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

kabhi na bhoolenge hum tumne itna pyaar diya hai
kabhi na murjhaayega tumne jo gulzaar diya hai
hamen tumhaari yaadon ki saugandh ke hum bachche bhi
yogya banenge uske tumne jo sansaar diya hai
jab tak mehnat ke haathon jaayega vishwa sanwaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara

hum sachche insaan banen
hum dost banen vishwaasi
hum chaahe jo hon pahle hon achchhe Bharatwaasi
kabhi na ho ab jung zameen par
desh rahen sab mil kar
jung ek hi ho duniya mein
bhookh rog aur dukh par
jab tak bahti hai is duniya mein Ganga ki dhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par chaacha naam tumhaara
phool khilega baaghon mein
jab tak gulaab kaa pyaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
chaacha naam tumhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
chaacha naam tumhaara
tab tak zinda hai dharti par
chaacha naam tumhaara

Blog Day :

4320 Post No. : 15606 Movie Count :

4298

I am reminded of Halley’s comet when I started writing this post. Relevance and context. . .?

Well, as they say…. samajhne waale samajh gaye hain

Anyway, coming to this unique post, all I can say is that I was surprised when I was asked to go ahead with the song by none other than Sudhir ji. There is some email interaction happening between self, Atul ji and Sudhir ji on another topic.  In this interchange of emails and out of the blue, I was suggested to take up today’s “song”.

This song is from a film that never got completed. The film was shelved and the ‘song’ technically is from an unreleased film.

I am a huge admirer and follower of the rules of this blog such as.

  1. Only Hindi film and non-film songs are represented.
  2. Every song is represented only once, no matter how important or popular it is.
  3. Lyrics are a must in each post for the song represented.
  4. Multiple-version songs from the same film are considered as one.
    Etc.

Of course, there are some exceptions, such as room for songs rendered in English in our Hindi films etc. “Wish Me Luck” from ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970), “My Heart Is Beating” from ‘Julie’ (1975) etc. being such examples. But then, I understand, deviations do require some permission and go-ahead from the bosses. 🙂

Well, how about a shelved and incomplete film.? Yes, we do have many such representations also. So, what’s unique about today’s song? Ok, the interesting thing about today’s song is that it is

  1. From an unreleased/incomplete/shelved film
  2. Recording of the song is not available
  3. The singer has sung the song in a concert

With this background, I bring forth a song sung in a concert by Mukesh from the film ‘Chalaak’ (some sources attribute the making year to 1966) which never saw the light of the day. Not much information is available about this film on the web, but I happened to find a very interesting and detailed article of this film authored by one Mr Karan Bali, and posted on the blog named ‘Upper Stall’. Here is the link to the full article – https://upperstall.com/features/incomplete-films-chalaak/.

Since the story behind the incomplete film is important, I am copy pasting the relevant paras from the same article. Readers are requested to read his detailed article from the link above as it also has some rare photographs taken during the shooting of this incomplete film. The sad tale of this film is linked with the equally sad life story of Madhubala, who was the heroine in this film.

Sometime around 1964, once she felt a little better, Madhubala decided to make a comeback and finish her work on yet another film that was stalled for quite some time, called Chalaak, where she was cast opposite Raj Kapoor. The film was being produced and directed by JK Nanda, who had directed singing star KL Saigal’s last film Parwana (1947), besides having worked with Madhubala earlier in films like Singaar (1949) and Dhake Ki Malmal (1956). The film also starred Agha, Om Prakash and Jeevan, while the music for the film was being scored by Raj Kapoor regulars Shankar-Jaikishan. According to the July 15, 1960 issue of Screen, some ten reels were in the can by then. Some more filming took place before Madhubala’s ailment again brought the film to a halt. It is said that she collapsed on the sets and was advised strict bed rest thereafter. Still determined to finish it, sometime around 1966, Madhubala again made a valiant attempt to complete the film. Stills of her from the film show just how ill she was, her still-beautiful face looking shrunken and heavily made up, a deep sadness in those famous twinkling eyes.

However, the physical effort to complete Chalaak proved too much for the actress. The film shut down shop for good. It was all the more tragic as it is said that Chalaak had just a few more filming days left. And in less than 3 years after its shelving, the Venus of the Indian screen left this world on February 23, 1969, when just 36. . .

While no records of the film’s music came out, Mukesh did sing a song from the film at some of his concerts. At one such function in the 1960s, he declared the film had not released but would soon be seen in the theatres. As we know that never happened. . .

The film never got released, however one solitary recording of Mukesh singing this song at a concert in Mombasa (Kenya) is thankfully available. I was aware of this song and had also heard it a few times on the net. But, for the reasons mentioned above regarding the rules of the blog, I was under the impression that I may not be entertained for posting it on the blog. However, when I was offered to represent this concert song, I grabbed it with both the hands. I thank Atul ji and Sudhir ji for giving me an opportunity to represent this unique song on the blog.

In connection with the writing of this post, I was also in touch with Shri Harish ji of Surat who as usual was quite prompt in his help and replies. I thank him for the help rendered.

I do not want to promise but can assure readers that the comet will appear soon again. 🙂

“Chandan”(1971) was produced and directed by Kewal Mishra for Kewal Art Production, Bombay. The movie had The movie had Som Dutt, Joginder Shelly, Komal aka Poonam Sinha, Jayashree.T., Zeb Rehman, Dilip Dutt, Ramesh Deo, Ram Mohan, Birbal, Mohan Choti, V.Gopal, Kishan, Meenakshi, Renu Joshi, M.Sahgal, Coca cola, Dhanraj, Asi Dutt, Kishan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

Som Dutt, the brother of Sunil Dutt, was launched by Sunil Dutt with “Man Ka Meet”(1968). Instead of Som Dutt gettinmg launched, that film helped Vinod Khanna getting launched.

It can be seen that Kewal Mishra saw enough in Som Dutt to sign him up as the hero for his movie. Seeing that the movie ended up belly up at the box office. I have no idea what he thought about this flop venture of his.

Not just the movie, even its songs ended up as forgotten.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. That was in 2013. While covering that song, I had mentioned that I had never heard of that movie and the song. Same can be said about this song under discussion as well. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mukesh. Omkar Verma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonik Omi.

The song is picturised as a typical chhed chhad turning into love kind of song on Komal (later better known as wife of Shatrughan Sinha) and Som Dutt. I found it a nice hummable song the very first time I listed to it.


Song-Ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan (Chandan)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Mukesh, Lyrics-Omkar Verma, MD-Sonik Omi

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 43
——————————————————————————————

As Gajendra ji had commented, couple of episodes ago – I am quite sure the readers are now beyond getting surprised by the songs posted in this series. Yes, some very interesting repeats, but oh well. . .

The interesting thing about today’s post is, well, two things. It is the singer’s Remembrance Day today, as well as, we also are showcasing the song as part of the 10 year challenge series.

10 years ago, this day, six songs were posted. Those were the days, when Atul ji was at his prolific best, and six new songs on the blog was quite the norm. And he followed an interesting convention. The songs he posted on one day, used to be in the incremental chronological order, as you can notice in the short table below.

Chup Hojaa Ameeron Ke Ye Sone Ki Ghadi Hai Bandi 1957 1814
O Pawan Veg Se Udne Waale Ghode Jai Chittod 1961 1815
More Ang Lag Jaa Baalmaa Mera Naam Joker 1970 1816
Gore Gore Gaalon Waale…Kahte Hain Mujhko Haseenon Ka Devtaa Haseenon Ka Devta 1971 1817
Mile Mile Do Badan Khile Khile Do Chaman Blackmail 1973 1818
Pahraa Hai Yahaan Pahraa Badnaam 1975 1819

There were two debut films that day – ‘Jai Chittod’ and ‘Haseenon Ka Devta’. And quite interestingly, both the films are at present miles away from being yippeee’d. Since that day, only one song has been added for ‘Jai Chittod’ (12 songs listed in Geet Kosh), and none for ‘Haseenon Ka Devta’ (6 songs listed in Geet Kosh). The remaining 4 films, ‘Bandi’ (1957), ‘Blackmail’ (1973), ‘Badnaam’ (1975) and ‘Mera Naam Joker’, the magnum opus by Raj Kapoor, have completed their account on the blog.

And yet, today, “Mera Naam Joker’ makes another appearance here, on account of an unlisted song. In that, it is a repeat song from RK’s own film from 1951 – ‘Awaara’. Being his own film, of course it would have been a simple thing to reuse the earlier song.

In the iconic song “Ae Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo”, the poet Neeraj declares,

haan babu ye circus hai
aur ye circus hai show teen ghante ka

pehla ghanta bachpan hai
doosra jawaani hai
teesra buddhaapa hai

The entire film was presented as three chapters, with two intermissions. And quite literally, RK has presented three phases of life in these three segments – childhood, youth, and old age. And in each of these phases, there is a different lady with whom the Joker’s heart gets entangled. And every time, his emotions and timid overtures are eventually disregarded – in face of certain compulsions of life that each one of those lady characters struggle with, in their own lives. In the first phase, there is a mismatch of age. In the second, there is a mismatch of location / language / societal background. And in the third, there is a mismatch of aspirations in life versus the values of life.

The reprisal of this song occurs close to the end of the second segment. The Joker has lost his heart to a circus artist visiting from Russia. And as their visit and stay comes to a close, the lady has to leave, and go back to her own country with her group. The circus manager (role played by Dharmendra), in an earlier conversation, has already cautioned him against getting too friendly with the visitors. That caution has now become a prophesy realized. Marina (role played by Russian actress Kseniya Ryabinkina) has to leave. The Joker is at the airport, with Sher Singh (role played by Dara Singh), his partner in crime, or let’s say, his ustaad in the art of romance. The Joker has come to bid farewell to the departing Russian troupe, and his lady love, who cannot stay. There is a brief exchange between the two lovers, and the lady leaves, planting a kiss on the Joker’s lips, and waving a good bye. Sher Singh asks the Joker as to what the lady has said in her native language. The Joker replies forlornly, that her words reminded him of an old song.

And then this song from two decades earlier is played once again, as a background piece. Marina walks to the plane, and the plane departs. And the verses penned by Shailendra are re-told yet once again in the life of the Joker –

duniya mein tere teer ka
ya taqdeer ka maara hoon. . .

This verse segment is the one that I never seem to have been able to get over all my life.  “That, in this life of mine, I have been vanquished either by my own destiny, or the glance arrows coming from your eyes – I do not know which one.” Such a powerful assertion in just ten words, ensconcing within itself a myriad philosophies of life, in a moment narrating and laying bare everything that can and could have gone wrong in an overwhelmed life. The emotions these ten words evoke inside, lie crumpled, tightly wound like a giant ball of thread, with no end visible – not enough words to unravel it and express it.

This song is probably one of the most recognizable songs ever in the ocean of Hindi film music – not only here in India, but also in many parts of this world, where RK’s films are loved as part of their own cultures. The first few bars of the prelude music start to play, and practically every one can recognize which song is coming up. And so, I remember, the first time I saw ‘Mera Naam Joker’, and this scene played out on the screen, and the Joker tells about being reminded of an old favorite song, and the prelude music begins to play – it was quite a shock of recognition that overpowered the heart. Yes, RK presenting this song at this juncture, makes all the sense, rounds up everything that he has been wanting to say through this film – ‘Mera Naam Joker’ – a wayward truant clown I am in this life.

An interesting throwback on this song – it was also repeated within the original film itself. Regular folks would remember, the closing scene – Nargis and Prithviraj Kapoor are visiting RK in the prison, after he has been incarcerated post his trial. It is a brief meeting – about two minutes or so. And as Nargis is asked to take leave, there is this standard dialogue that RK utters – “. . . meri soorat hi aisi hai”. Overcome by the understated innocence and simplicity, plus the unpretentious hangdog look on his face, Nargis once again rushes back into his arms, and exactly the same stanza starts to play in the background.

A few interesting observations about these two reprisals. Take the music and rendition. The song that plays in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ is very nearly the original, but as one listens carefully, one can make out small pieces of extra orchestral music that S-J have weaved in, merging it with the overall background score of the scene. And in the original film ‘Awaara’, the rendition has a small variation at the end. The words of the last line that Mukesh has sung include a very delicate and lovable “हाय” ~ “haaye” –

haaye. . .
awaara hoon..oon..oon. . .

This addition has made this line oh so much more endearing and adorable. Listening to this last one snippet made my day – more than all the pleasure and emotions that are flowing with the original complete version of the song. So surely, this segment, or at least this last line has been re-recorded, even then back in 1951, and presented separately as the end piece.

Next, in both these reprisals, there is a close, very close proximity of the lady love. In ‘Awaara’, the kiss almost happens – just short of the waving scissors of the censor board. And in ‘Mera Naam Joker’, the kiss does happen, with Marina forcefully planting it on the lips of the Joker. Oh well, I don’t know – should we expect a kiss, whenever this part of the song is played ??  Ha, ha, I am sure you will tell me – it happens only in the reel world. 🙂 🙂

Another cute co-incidence I discovered in the last scene of ‘Awaara’. RK and Nargis are in each others arms, and a loud voice calls out in the background, probably the prison warden or constable – “ओ क़ैदी नंबर 308, चलो” (“O prisoner no. 308, come on move.”). I made a little connect in my mind – I don’t know whether that was the intention of the director and dialogue writer. The number 308 – it rang a bell. 308 –> 30-8 –> 30th August –> Shailendra’s birthday. 🙂 🙂

Back to ‘Mera Naam Joker’, I might as well document it here, for possibly no more posts of this film could be forthcoming in the future. The three ladies who appear in each of the three chapters of this film, just examine the screen names – Mary, Marina, Meena. Sound quite connected, flowing right into each other. You combine Mary and Meena – becomes Marina. Just some musings of the wandering mind. Just like the three magazines that RK, Rajendra Kumar and Padmini are seen browsing through on the flight – Time (Padmini), Fortune (Rajendra Kumar) and Life (RK). 🙂 🙂

And then, back to Mukesh, after all so much wandering of the silly mind over the terrain of anecdotes and co-incidences. Even till late afternoon today, I hadn’t the faintest idea whether I would be writing post for the remembrance day today. Mahesh ji’s post, so wholesome and so satisfying, after posting that in early morning, I was not picking up new ideas to write another post on Mukesh. Later, in the afternoon, I was just browsing through the list of songs etc., and don’t know why, but I decided to check out the 10-year-challenge thing for today. Pulled out the list of songs for 27-08-2009. The title ‘Mera Naam Joker’ jumped out at me immediately, and before I could say bambi, my mind had made a few jumps around, connected other material, and brought out this well baked idea of doing a combined 10-year-challenge and repeat-songs post. Yes, I had this repeat song on my list, and had not yet planned when to post it. The mind made that decision for me today, and quite swiftly so, without taking me along on the steps of decision making.

I am glad I checked this out, and got to make this connection and getting this post out today. In the earlier post today, Mahesh ji has mentioned a figure of ~80% songs of Mukesh being hit songs. I cannot think of any other singer, at this level of prolific output, who can be associated with this high a percentage of successful and popular songs from his or her body of work. And then the second connect came when Arun ji deposited on the Whatsapp group, a reminder of the Mukesh anniversary program on Doordarshan seven years ago. I recalled that this was also the very first question that the person interviewing me and Shikha ji, put to me in this program. That question was – “Mukesh ji has about 800 songs to his credit? Why does it always seem that has sung much more?”

And my answer was exactly on these lines – in any singer’s body of work, there is a certain percentage of songs which are memorable, which became popular, and which are quite well retained in the memory. However, with all other singers, this ratio of popular and memorable songs to their total repertoire, is comparatively lower. By extrapolating this expectation, the mind always thinks that in case of Mukesh, his body of work ought to be much larger, if the number of his popular and memorable songs is so much. This is a very interesting point. After that TV program, I had this very discussion with a number of friends, and mostly we agreed to this conclusion.

No doubt the music director and the poet – they have a very significant contribution towards the creation of a song. But it is the voice of Mukesh, that makes something different out of any song. That is what has made so large a percentage of his songs popular and memorable. A soulful voice – that was my assertion on that TV program also, that – “मुकेश जी की आवाज़ में एक अनोखी आत्मीयता है, जो किसी और गायक में नहीं मिलती”.  There is this so unique a characteristic of his rendition – an effortless exposition of the emotions, expressed in a most relaxing mode.

I feel I could go on and on. But then, not now. Another song, another post – there seems to be so much more one wants to say about this soulful, mellifluous voice – almost divine.

Song Repeat – Mera Naam Joker (1970)

Song Reprised at End – Awaara (1951)

Song – Aawaara Hoon. . .  (Mera Naam Joker) (1970) Singers – Mukesh, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Shanker Jaikishan

Lyrics

aabaad nahin barbaad sahi
gaataa hoon khushi ke geet magar
gaataa hoon khushi ke geet magar
zakhmon se bharaa seena hai mera
hansti hai magar ye mast nazar
duniyaa aaa..aaa aaa..aaa
duniyaa mein tere teer kaa
ya taqdeer kaa maara hoon
aawaara hoon

Mukesh and his co-singers – 5
————————————————

We remember Mukesh on his remembrance day today (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976).

Needless to say, the post had to be special. But, when a singer has almost 80% of songs considered as hits and most of these songs already represented on the blog, what can be more special. Well, a few hitherto songs of Mukesh continue to be discovered with a great deal of exhilaration to his fans and old hfm lovers in general. I assume that the present song will make this post special.

It is well known that Mukesh has nil to very few duets with singers like Noorjahan, Amirbai Karnataki, Jagit Kaur, Khursheed, Parul Ghosh etc. With singers like Hamida Banu, Suraiya, Rajkumari, Surinder Kaur, Sitara Kanpuri etc, the numbers are again quite few. He does have sizable numbers with Lata, Asha, Suman Kalayanpur, Geeta Dutt etc.

A very interesting companion in singing in this discussion will be off course the versatile Shamshad Begum. I had almost taken it for granted that all songs of hers with Mukesh have been covered on the blog. But then one thing led to another and resulted in this post of which I am extremely happy. Not one but two duets have been discovered in the last few weeks. Before I proceed with revealing the songs, it is pertinent to mention the traceability aspects of these duets.

We go back to Sadanand ji posting the Mukesh number for MGR in the comments section. I decided to take up Dhaniram’s collaboration with Mukesh and as usual sent the query to Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji (of Surat) enquiring if it was the sole song under the composer.

Harish ji did confirm the singularity of the case, but added a priceless info that there is a duet in Shole (1953) in which Mukesh has a duet with Shamshad Begum. He further stated that very few music lovers are aware of this duet. The context being Dhaniram being the other composer apart from Naresh Bhattacharya to have scored music for the film. When I searched for this duet on the internet, I came across a Hemant Kumar solo and his duet with Shamshad Begum. Not losing hope, I was lucky enough to find the full movie on youtube. I first decided to go through the credit titles if I could trace Mukesh.

The film titles are shown on a railway track with very poor background and the moving train literally pushing the titles out of the screen. With great difficulty, I saw all the titles and there appears no mention of any of the playback singers in the film. Here, I would seek more knowledgeable reader’s kind explanation as to why many of the old films never bothered to credit playback singers in the titles. I suppose this trend continued even in the sixties for quite a few films.

The print of the film is extremely poor in both voice and picturization. The saving grace being something is available to run through. In spite the bad print and poor audio what stands out is the impeccable grace and beauty of Bina Rai and the ever energetic and melodious voice of Shamshad Begum. Coming back to the bad print of the film Shole (1953), I decided to run the film arbitrarily at short intervals. Then for one of the duets with a rather long prelude, I could hear sound bites very familiar to me. Yes, it is undoubtedly Mukesh.

I was so excited that I noted the time at which this duet starts and closed the film. I went to the other room in my house where my wife was busy with our daughter in her studies. They had a cursory look at my face and instantly both asked what I was so delighted about. I told them about the discovery and they again became engrossed with the studies knowing very well that this guy has no better work to do. My daughter likes a few songs of Raj Kapoor sung by Mukesh and wife likes a few of his duets and solos, but they are never into these statistics and other aspects of old hfm songs as I am. Anyways, I was back to the same link and juncture and again savored what I was listening for the very first time; an unheard duet of Mukesh. Only the first couple of lines of the mukhda are sung by Mukesh and then Shamshad Begum takes over for the rest of the duet. Its an extremely melodious duet to listen.

Now coming to another strange feature, I found four different versions of this song. The below table is self-explanatory and I have provided links for each of the versions.

Version Singers YouTube link
Film Soundtrack Mukesh, Shamshad Begum https://youtu.be/G8gkPL4qc8o
Hemant Kumar https://youtu.be/mmoh60LfIsc
78 rpm record Hemant Kumar https://youtu.be/OuvVFrcTYuU
Hemant Kumar, Shamshad Begum https://youtu.be/zlzgIDgky7g
Full movie SHOLE (1953) https://youtu.be/W6ubiNUgZuQ

Now, if the film had Mukesh and the 78 rpm version songs had Hemant Kumar, it would have been quite understandable. But, Hemant Kumar having sung the film version of the solo makes the case quite intriguing. Did Mukesh walk out of the film after singing the duet? We may never know. What we do know is that during this period he was working in various departments such as acting, composing, producing etc. and these experiments costing him dearly in terms of getting offers to give playback arguably for the rest of his singing career.

Also, during late forties and early fifties, the void created by the passing away of KL Saigal in early 1947 was yet to be filled. Good friends Mukesh and Talat Mahmood were vying to fill the gap and they both failed. One can now say with much conviction that the void created by KL Saigal will remain till the end of days.

Coming back to the versions, both the film soundtracks have poor audio and the 78 rpm ones have better audio quality. For some reason, I personally feel the duet of the film soundtrack is the best amongst the four if a better copy is available to listen. The momentary pause that Shamshad Begum has in the film soundtrack is more appealing than in the version song. Now one may ask, pause is a pause and how it can be differentiated. Well, crazy music lovers have additional senses to assimilate such nuances in music. Long live such craziness. 🙂

Now we come to the important discussion on the combo of Shamshad Begum and Mukesh. Forget writing in detail about their association, the very mention of the two names together excites me to no end.  Mukesh and Shamshad Begum, two different styles, but when it came to duets the styles glued to form some glorious duets in the annals of HFM. At many places on the net it is mentioned that the singers have altogether 22-24 duets. I am happy to list 29 and here is the carcanet of the jewels.

A cursory glace at the table reveals that they have actively sung most of their 29 duets during a period of only for 4 years of their career. This aspect has much to be pondered about.

Before I proceed to write on the above duets please note that song no 23 has SD Batish, 26 has Geeta Roy, Pramodini Desai and 27 has Rafi saab singing along with Mukesh and Shamshad Begum in the respective songs.

It would not be an exaggeration to state that Mukesh and Shamshad were pioneers in playback singing. I know it is more often used for Shamshad’s career, but let us not forget that Mukesh too started giving playback as early as 1944 with ‘Uss Paar’. Why ‘Uss Paar’ and not ‘Moorti’ or ‘Pheli Nazar’? Well, that could take another detailed post. 🙂

In the above list song number 1, 3, 4 and 5 are regular features on Radio Ceylon and are played to this day. 6 was of course the directorial debut of Raj Kapoor, with Ram Ganguly’s haunting scores – the songs of the film remain popular to this day. The next film of RK, as we are well aware, had a change in composers. Shamshad Begum had a cabaret solo in ‘Awara’ and a couple of not so popular songs for SJ thereafter.

10 by one of my favourite composers Ghulam Mohammed is a rare treat to hear. I only wish Mukesh has sung more songs for him.

8, 9 and 11 to 14 need no description and arguably are the best-known duets of the combo; the magician of these two films being none other than the great Naushad.

‘Shabnam’ under SD Burman had 3 duets of the combo with Mukesh giving playback for thespian Dilip Kumar. Needless to say, the songs of this film were a huge rage during those days.

21 under Gyan Dutt is an absolute masterpiece. The debut movie of Madan Mohan had the combo singing a comical duet at 22.

The other songs may not be very well known, but as I have said earlier it is the combination of the singers that make the duets lively and a pleasure to listen.

Quite a few of these duets have been covered by our Sudhir ji in his series on Mukesh wherein he covered the rare and difficult to trace songs at the beginning of Mukesh’s career. Again, as I have written earlier, in spite of the best efforts of Sudhir ji having covered all the songs of Mukesh till 1950, welcome discoveries continue to be uncovered and 2 is such an example. Sudhir ji has shared the audio with me and it will be posted on the blog in the very near future. 🙂

29 and probably the last duet of the combo is covered in this post and I have already written about the many facets of this song. In fact Sudhir ji has sent queries and sought clarifications from his collector friends to understand the existence of the multiple versions of this song in the film.

‘Shole’ (1953) was directed by BR Chopra for Hira Films. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Bina Rai, Purnima, Jeevan, Mohana, Manmohan Krishna, Mirza Musharaf, Romi, Naaz, Uma Dutt etc in it. The movie had two music directors viz Dhaniram and Naresh Bhattacharya. The present song is composed by the latter. The lyrics of this multiple version song are credited to Kamil Rashid.

The lyrics of the Hemant Kumar solo version are slightly different in the 78 rpm vs the soundtrack versions, but giving due credit to Hamant Da, I herewith, for obvious reasons, present the lyrics of only the film soundtrack version of Mukesh and Shamshad Begum

I thank Harish ji for all the help rendered in making this elusive duet of Mukesh appear on the blog. I also thank Sudhir ji and Atul ji for giving me yet another opportunity to present this post.

Lastly, on his remembrance day, I pay humble tributes to Mukesh whose mellifluous voice continues to regale listeners the world over.

Mukesh and his Composers – 19
————————————
chaahe kahin bhi tum raho,
chaahenge tumko umr bhar
tumko na bhool paayenge

Remembering Mukesh on his 96th birth anniversary (22 July 1923 to 27 August 1976).

A life and career spent on entertaining music lovers all over the world, the very mention of his name brings to the mind several of his priceless renditions. A voice which remains active on air-waves to this day and beyond. More than being on the air-waves and various technological formats, it is the legacy and remembrance of the familiar voice that continues to dwell in the hearts of music lovers. A voice so familiar that it directly conveys to our hearts the feelings expressed in his songs.

For this post, I have taken the liberty of using material and information provided by many fellow blog contributors as well as Shri Harish ji.

It all started when Sadandand ji posted a comment on this post of Sudhir ji in his rather elaborate and highly researched series on missing films and songs of the 60’s which was given to him as a homework. Sadanand ji in the comments section of the aforesaid post has provided quality information and the video link of the song. The fact that Mukesh had sung a solo for MGR made me sit up and take notice. I had heard the song but was not aware that it was featured on MGR.

I was under the impression that it could be the only song sung by Mukesh for MGR. So I asked our Sudhir ji if he could send me the list of Hindi films in which MGR had acted. His prompt and detailed reply was as follows,

Year Movie
1951 Ek Tha Raja
1956 Gul e Bakaavali
1961 Baghdad
1962 Hamen Bhi Jeene Do
1962 Meri Bahen
1963 Raj Mahal
1965 Nartaki Chitra
1970 Koi Ghulam Nahin
1974 Aakhiri Nishaan
1975 Rangeen Duniya
1976 Love in Kashmir
1970s Ganga Ki God Mein (Unreleased)

A dozen films which included an unreleased film. Going through the list, one finds that the very first Hindi film in which MGR acted has a duet of Mukesh with Shamshad Begum. I am not sure if Mukesh sang for MGR in the duet, but it appears that the song under discussion is his only solo for MGR.

However, this post is on the collaboration of Mukesh with composer Dhaniram about whom very less material is available on the net. Shri Arunkumar ji helped me in sending the web-link of one of his interviews and it can be found here.

I have come across Dhaniram’s name many years back as two of his songs sung by Talat Mahmood are my personal favourites. They are Yeh Kya Hai Dhang Zamane Ka and aao baadal chain se royen.

The one from Dak Babu(1954) is simply out of the world. I request readers to listen to this composition and rendition by Talat Mahmood and especially the lines.

aye dil aisi mehfil se to
behtar tanhaai hai

One can only ask, where are those days and where are those people who created such majesties.

Coming back to Mukesh-Dhaniram, the present song appears to be their only collaboration and hence there will be no table. (But, then there is always a possibility of tracing obscure songs…)

The present film Meri Behan (1962) starring MGR was the dubbed version of the Tamil film ‘Aransilankumari’ (1961) as confirmed by Sadanand ji.

Now some interesting trivia.

Mere Behan (1962) was based on Tamil film Aransilankumari (1961).

Aransilankumari (1961) was based on 1952 Hollywood film Scaramouche.

Scaramouche (1952) in turn is based on the novel with the same title by Rafael Sabatini.

The novel by Rafael Sabatini is based on story set during the French revolution.

So, the conclusion can be deduced that our own Mere Behan (1962) was based on French Revolution. ?

Since I could trace very little to write on Dhaniram and considering the fact that Mukesh has a solitary song for the composer, I have probably failed to do justice to the post and the composer.

I am however glad to present this solo number sung by Mukesh for the great MGR. I thank Sadanand ji, Arunkumar ji, Harish ji, Sudhir ji and Atul ji for having given me this opportunity to present the song.

The post is a tribute to Mukesh on his birth anniversary for his voice has become an inseparable part of our lives which he himself had said in one of his songs…

chaahe raho jaa kar kahin
paaoge tum mujhko wahin
ki band gar aankhen zaraa
main khwaab ban kar aaunga


Song-Nanhe munne nanhe munne laal desh ke (Meri Bahan)(1962) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Pt Indra Chandra, MD-Dhaniram

Lyrics

nanhe munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke
nanhe munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke
le tujh se boloon
baat cheet ki
ise maan le re
ismein maan le
nanhe munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke

bade hoke manzil par tum
jald pahunchna
munne naam kamaana
bade hoke manzil par tum
jald pahunchna
munne naam kamaana
phool ho tum duniya ki
bagiya ke liye re ae
bagiya ke liye
phool ho tum duniya ki
bagiya ke liye re ae
bagiya ke liye
nanhe munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke

neem ped ooncha dikha
bhooton se log daraate ae ae ae
ae ae ae
neem ped ooncha dikha
bhooton se log daraate
mat darna polam pol
jhoothhi gappon se
nis din
rakhna khud pe bharosa
mere naujawaan
bade log baithh kahin
fizool ki baat karen
bade log baithh kahin
fizool ki baat karen
phailaayenge ye jhoothh
kabhi na maan’na re
beza aisi baat na inki
baabu maan’na na
baabu maan’na
nanne munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke
le tujh se boloon
baat seekh ki
ise maan le re
ismein maan le
nanhe munne
nanne munne
laal desh ke

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Coming into the 5th episode of the repeat song series. Here is an example of a straight and simple reuse, as is. The film is ‘Raja Kaka’ from 1973. And the famous drunkard song by Mukesh – from the 1960 film ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’, has been re-used in this film, without any changes or re-recording. As we listen to this picturization, it is clearly the original song that is simply being replayed in this film.

The song was performed by Balraj Sahni on screen in the earlier film. In this one, actor Roopesh Kumar takes on the role of a drunkard and attempts his own version of histrionics for the same verses. ‘Raja Kaka’ is a film about the relationship between rich industrialist and labour class. During the 1970s, the trade union movement was pretty strong in India, and we have many films in that era that have tackled this subject. In the film, Kiran Kumar and Roopesh Kumar are two very close friends. Both are street smart don type good samaritans, and they are trying to do good for the poor labour community in their area. Kiran Kumar is more suave and Roopesh Kumar is more rustic. As is evident from the video clip, Roopesh Kumar is of the type to get drunk, climb atop a stationary bus, and sing out this song.

Some interesting background into the reuse of this song. Firstly, the music director duo of the two films is the same – Kalyanji Anandji. And with some checking, I can say that possibly the producer of these two films is also the same. As per the Geet Kosh, the production banner for ‘Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere’ from 1960 is Kanwar Kala Mandir and the name of the producer is listed as Bihari Masand. For the latter film from 13 years later, the production banner name is given as TM Bihari (Producers), and no specific name given in the producer column. The name of the producer of the former film and the name of the production banner of the latter film kind of map together, raising the possibility that the two films had the same producers. So having the same music director and the same producer – that is the easiest route to re-use of songs.

This video clip is incomplete. Only one stanza is covered. When viewing the complete film, it seems as if edit cuts or other splicing has reduced the length of the pircturised song, and the song seems to have an abrupt beginning and an abrupt end. I tried checking this in different versions available, but the situation seems to be the same. I have not been able to lay hands on a VHS tape of this film – checking that source may provide some definite information about the duration of the re-used song.

Mukesh’s voice – as always – is a pleasure to listen to. Check out the original song a here – “Haan Gunaah Kiya Hai Huzoor Maine”. When that one was posted, we had the discussion in comments about the correct words of the mukhda of this song. The manner in which it has been rendered, the first two words at times sound like “Haan Bura. . .”, and sometimes they sound like “Haan Gunaah. . .”. That little discussion on the rendition still persists. The readers may make up their minds as they listen to the song.

An iconic Mukesh song, reused in a later film. It sure does help to have the same music director and the same producer. 😉

 

Song – Haan Gunaah Kiya Hai Huzoor Maine  (Raja Kaka) (1973) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – KL Pardesi, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
