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

bagiya ke liye re ae

phool ho tum duniya ki

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

Lyrics

haan gunaah kiya hai huzoor maine

Mukesh and his Composers – 18
—————————————–

Subsequent to the posting of debut song from the film Veer Ghatotkach (1970), Sudhir ji sent me an email on 16 October 2018, saying that the said film had a wonderful Mukesh song and sought to know if I would be interested to take up the same in this series of mine. He further wrote that that he alternately taken up a Suman Kalyanpur song for representing the film in his series.

Whilst I feel quite gratified with such gestures, there is also a huge sense of resentment within myself for not taking up the posts of Mukesh more frequently.

Anyway, coming to next part of this series, we take up the curious case of composer Dilip Dholakia. I say curious because he represented himself under various names such as Dilip Roy, D. Dilip, Dilip Rai and unfortunately ended up a lesser known composer.

Because of the various names that he took upon himself, it is difficult to attribute all his contributions on the same page without an element of omission or mistake. Thankfully, the wiki page on him does justice to his various contributions in Hindi, Gujarati and Bhojpuri films. He has composed for 8 films in Hindi and 11 in Gujarati apart from the many films in which he assisted composers like Chitragupt, SN Tripathi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I came across two detailed post/articles on Dilip Dholakia. One is from AK ji’s blog wherein Ashok M Vaishnav ji has done a detailed post on the composer. This post also contains many informative comments and a few notably by our own Arunkumar ji. The other one is a news article published after the composer passed away on 02 January 2011. These two references give a fairly good idea about all his works.

Coming to the topic of this post, Mukesh has sung two songs for him in 1970 for ‘Veer Ghatotkach’ and ‘Dagaabaaz’. The one from ‘Dagabaaz’ has already been covered on the blog including the sad version. The song for this post was noticed by self in 2015 itself when Sudhir ji was doing his posts on the early songs of Mukesh from the forties.

Hearing the restrained rendition of Mukesh and the black and white print of the song, I had jumped the gun and reported to Atul ji and Sudhir ji that I had traced one more rare song from the 40’s. However my eureka moment did not last long and I was reminded that there are two films of the same name released in 1949 and 1970 respectively. Mukesh, apparently had no songs in the 1949 version of the same film title.

Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji was more than helpful in giving me the details and confirming that only 2 songs were sung by Mukesh for the composer in Hindi. I was also given to understand that Mukesh has 2 more songs in Gujarati and one song in Magadhi language under Dilip Dholakia. Here is the short table of the collaboration between Mukesh and Dilip Dholakia.

S.No

Name of song Movie (Year of release)

Lyricist

1

Hum Manmauji Raahi Mastaane (Happy and Sad versions) ‘Daghaabaaz’ (1970) BD Mishra

2

Us Pratham Pratham

 

‘Veer Ghatotkach’ (1970) BD Mishra

The present song is featured on Raj Kumar and Laxmi Chhaaya. I found an interesting and detailed article on the actor Raj Kumar. This person is different from the more famous actor with the same name. The jewellery and make-up worn by Laxmi Chhaaya should have given me enough hints that this song cannot belong to 1949. Also, she was born only in 1948. But then, what am I trying to prove? Well, I want to convey that it is only the voice of Mukesh and his unrepresented songs on the blog that I concentrate and not much on the heroines. 🙂

Now, let us listen to this wonderful rendition by Mukesh.


Song – Us Pratham Pratham Parichay Mein Hi (Veer Ghatotkach) (1970) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – BD Mishra, MD – Dilip Dholakia

Lyrics

us partham partham parichay mein hi
maine khoya tha apnapan
us partham partham parichay mein hi
maine khoya tha apnapan
phir mila tumhari aankhon se
mere pranno ko nav jeevan
us partham partham parichay mein hi

soona soona jeevan tha mera tumhaare bina
soona soona jeevan tha mera tumhaare bina
ek akela mann tha mera tumhaare bina
tum ne aa kar mujhe wo geet diya
priye jhoom utha mera tan mann
phir mila tumhari aankhon se
mere pranon ko nav jeevan
us partham partham parichay mein hi

poonam jaisi sundar saloni tumhari chata
poonam jaisi sundar saloni tumhari chata
yauvan tumhara barkha me umadti ghata
main janam janam ka pyaasa tha
tum mujhko mili banke saawan
phir mila tumhari aankhon se
mere pranon ko naw jeevan

us partham partham parichay mein hi
maine khoya tha apnapan
phir mila tumhari aankhon se
mere pranon ko nav jeevan
us partham partham parichay mein hi

उस प्रथम प्रथम परिचय में ही
मैंने खोया था अपनापन
उस प्रथम प्रथम परिचय में ही
मैंने खोया था अपनापन
फिर मिला तुम्हारी आँखों से
मेरे प्राणों को नवजीवन
उस प्रथम प्रथम परिचय में ही

सूना सूना जीवन था मेरा तुम्हारे बिना
सूना सूना जीवन था मेरा तुम्हारे बिना
एक अकेला मन था मेरा तुम्हारे बिना
तुमने आकर मुझे वो गीत दिया
प्रिए झूम उठा मेरा तन मन
फिर मिला तुम्हारी आँखों से
मेरे प्राणों को नवजीवन
उस प्रथम प्रथम परिचय में ही

पूनम जैसी सुंदर सलोनी तुम्हारी छटा
पूनम जैसी सुंदर सलोनी तुम्हारी छटा
यौवन तुम्हारा बरखा में उमड़ती घटा
मैं जनम जनम का प्यासा था
तुम मिलीं मुझे बनके सावन
फिर मिला तुम्हारी आँखों से
मेरे प्राणों को नवजीवन

उस प्रथम प्रथम परिचय में ही
मैंने खोया था अपनापन
फिर मिला तुम्हारी आँखों से
मेरे प्राणों को नवजीवन
उस प्रथम प्रथम परिचय में ही

Mukesh and his Composers – 17
———————————-

We have discussed the songs sung by Mukesh for Aparesh Lahiri and his son Bappi Lahiri in the last two successive posts. Incidentally these two posts were on the birth and death anniversary dates of Mukesh.
Much earlier in the series, we have also discussed about Mukesh songs for S D Burman and R D Burman. Well, no prizes for guessing where we are heading with these discussions. Yes, the father-son associations that Mukesh had in his singing career and the name that came immediately to my mind was that of Rajesh Roshan. It appears that Mukesh’s association with father-son composers is restricted to the three duos discussed above. I found it prudent to have this short table of the details before we head to the composer of this post Rajesh Roshan.

S No Father-Son composer Number of songs by Mukesh
1 S D Burman 12
R D Burman 15
2 Aparesh Lahiri 1
Bappi Lahiri 2
3 Roshan 36
Rajesh Roshan 3

It is pointless, for obvious reasons to discuss the above table in totality, but we cannot help noticing that Roshan songs for Mukesh are more than all the other 5 composers put together.

In the above table, all songs of all composers are represented on the blog except one under Rajesh Roshan which is being introduced with this post. And, one song under R D Burman from Naukri (1978) is yet to be represented.

R D Burman started his composing career in 1961 and took Mukesh onboard only in 1965. Thereafter he had 14 more songs by Mukesh all in the 70”s and with quite a number of them being hits. To reiterate he composed 15 songs for Mukesh as against 12 by his father who had first composed for Mukesh way back in 1948.

Coming to the today’s post, Rajesh Roshan began his composing career only in 1974 and started with a bang with Kishore Kumar in Kunwaara Baap and Julie in 74 and 75 respectively. 76 was the year in which Mukesh passed away and we have only 3 songs that Mukesh sang for Rajesh Roshan and two of the movies were released after Mukesh had left this world.

Below is table of the short list of 3 songs with all the details. Needless to say, all 3 songs were famous and in particular the one from Tumhaari Kasam remains active in public memory to this day.

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Pari re tu kahaan ki pari Udhaar ka Sindoor (1976) Asha Bhosle Majrooh Sultanpuri
2 O maiya mori main mahin makhan Charandas (1977) Rajinder Krishan
3 Hum dono milke kaaghaz pe dilke Tumhaari Kasam (1978) Asha Bhosle Anand Bakshi

Tumhaari Kasam had Jeetrendra in the lead role, but the duet sung by Mukesh with Asha Bhosle was featured on Navin Nischol. The film was released two years after Mukesh passed away and yet it’s the only notable feature left of the film today. The tune is quite catchy and is a personal favourite of mine.

Charandas was released in 1977 and it makes a debut on the blog with this last of the 3 songs of Mukesh sung for Rajesh Roshan. The song is sung on screen by Om Prakash who seems to be the protagonist in the film.
Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji helped me with the confirmation of both the tables and I am ever grateful to him.

27th August – a traveling tour, a distant land, and an unexpected loss; a loss that is as numbing even today, as shattering as it was when it happened then. 1976, and a hotel in Detroit, USA. The soul of the voice and the voice of the soul – both were stilled forever. A life of just 53 years. And a singing career that was wonderfully placed. Both cut short by the matters of the heart – matters that could not be set right.

Today, we remember Mukesh, through his songs, in an effort to re-live the times. And to enjoy the listening pleasure that this voice still continues to be forty two years after his departure.

Mahesh ji’s wonderful selection “Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai” from an obscure film ‘Subhash Chandra’ has already posted earlier in the day today. Here is one more song in the memory of this soulful voice.

The film is ‘Aayega Aanewaala’ from 1967. This film is produced and directed by Kewal Misra for his home company, Kewal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors reads as follows – Kumkum, Sanjeev Kumar, Sabita Chatterjee, Ram Mohan, Kundan, Rajan Haksar, Chaman Puri, Uma Khosla, Ravi Khanna, Bela Bose, Khairati, and Agha.

There are six songs in this film, all written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and the music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. One song of this film has already been posted here. This is the second song coming on board.

The filming location for this song is Simla (in Himachal Pradesh) – a very scenic and a popular vacation resort, right from the pre-independence days. The song is picturized as what appears to be a picnic song. Sanjeev Kumrar is wooing and teasing Kum Kum, telling her that he is a seasoned player, and that he is not easily perturbed.

The song is a lively, playful song. In the voice of Mukesh, it becomes more endearing. The voice suits all types of emotions – even naughty playfulness. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Hum Wo Nahin Jo Aapke Kadmon Mein Dil Ko Rakh Den (Aayega Aanewaala) (1967) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
teri nazar ka raaz hain hum
bade zamaana saaz hain hum
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
badi haseen hain ye adaayen
kaho hamen na aazmaayen
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum
tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum  
tumhen kasam hai maan jaao
hamen ye tewar na dikhaao
kyon ke zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

Mukesh and his Composers – 16
—————————————–

Today 27 August, we remember Mukesh on his remembrance day.

My last post on his birthday (22 July) was about his collaboration with Bappi Lahiri. We remain with the Lahiri family in this post too as we discuss the songs sung by Mukesh for Bappi Da’s father Aparesh Lahiri.

There are probably more songs sung by Aparesh Lahiri than the films that he composed music for.

Not much information is available on the net and I request knowledgeable readers to write more on his composing career. From the little information, I could gather in connection with this post, I came across a Bengali film named Subhash Chandra (1966). Needless to say it is based on the life and times of one of the most adored and respected freedom fighters of India, Subhash Chandra Bose.

The film in Bengali language seems to have been quite popular from what I could understand. Mukesh who has sung about a dozen Bengali songs has one song in this 1966 particular film too. The same film was made in Hindi and seems to have disappeared without much popularity. In the Hindi version too, Mukesh has sung the same song with the same tune as the Bengali version.
[Ed Note: As per the Geet Kosh, the Hindi version of this film was released in 1978.]

This is the solitary song sung by Mukesh for Aparesh Lahiri and hence there will be no table in this post. 🙂

Evidently, there has not been much research by me in this post and I apologize for the same. However the details were sketchy and since it was the only sung by Mukesh for the said composer, I did not dig much into the career of Aparesh Lahiri.

Much of these details were provided to me by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi and I am thankful to him.

Before I conclude the post, I would like to repeat what a few noted and eminent personalities have said about Mukesh.

Salil Chowdhury: Each word from his lips was a pearl. No one could sing the way Mukesh did, with the right diction, inflexion and intonation. His vocal timbre was out of this world.

Raj Kapoor: I am just a body, Mukesh is my soul.

Anil Biswas: I have lost my son. (on Mukesh’s passing away)

Needless to say, the above quotes speak volumes about Mukesh; the man with the golden voice, playback singer par excellence and the noble soul.

The voice of Mukesh will forever continue to resonate in the world of music.


Song – Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai (Subhash Chandra) (1978) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD – Aparesh Lahiri

Mukesh and his Composers – 15
—————————————–
Remembering Mukesh on his birthday (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976)

Mukesh singing for Bappi Lahari is bound to raise eyebrows for the simple reason that the two artists worked in two different periods of time.
However, when Bappida started his hindi music journey in the beginning of the 70s, Mukesh was still giving playback. His first score for hindi movies was for the film Nanha Shikari (1973) and incidentally his first composition featured Mukesh. This was a pleasant surprise for me, when I was going through some articles on Bappida. For his fans here is his official website.

Coming to the next part of this series and after a long time, here is the short collaboration of Mukesh singing for Bappida. (The post itself is even shorter ) 🙂

There are only two songs; a duet with Sushma Shrestha in Nanha Shikari (1973) and a solo from Bazaar Band Karo (1974) which I present in this post.

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 mohe kar de vidaa de ke pyaar Bazaar Band Karo (1974) Naqsh Lyallpuri
2 tu hi mera chanda tu hi taara Nanha Shikari (1973) Sushma Shrestha Yogesh

“Bazaar Band Karo” is a 1974 Bollywood film produced and directed by B. R. Ishara and starring Manhar Desai and Asha Chandra. One song from the film is already posted on the blog and this is the second out of the four songs from the movie.

The bidaai song immediately reminds us of one of the most famous songs in this genre, the one from S. D Burman’s Bambai ka Babu’s iconic song Chal ri sajni ab kyaa soche(Bambai ka babu) sung by Mukesh himself.

A sort collaboration and an even sorter post, but the memories and the melodies of the singer are too many.


Song-Mohe kar de vida (Baazaar Band Karo)(1974) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

mohe kar de vidaa aa aa
de ke pyaar
hmm hmm hmm
re baabul kya soche ae
hmm
doli le ke khade hain kahaar
baabul kya soche
mohe kar de vidaa aa aa
de ke pyaar
hmm hmm hmm

aaj tere ghar ki jyoti
hmm
daaman mein lekar moti ee
hmm
aaj tere ghar ki jyoti
daaman mein lekar moti ee
dwaar piya ke pahunchengi roti
o o o o
dwaar piya ke pahunchenge roti
hmm
mohe kar do vidaa de ke pyaar
hmm hmm

laut na jaayen baarati

“Man Tera Tan Mera”(1971) was directed by B R Ishara for Nitin Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana Sultan, Anil Dhawan, Shatrughan Sinha, Manmohan Krishna, Asit Sen, Dulaari, Vivek, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Pardesi, Nayantara, Abhijeet Sen, Ravi, Roopaali, Hameed, Shakeel, Madhumati, Anand Narula, S K Sinha, M abbas, C K Shetty, Ram Singh, Prakash, Satyendra, Jeetendra Sharma, R Khosla, Master Susheel, Rashmi (new discovery) and Rukhsana (new discovery) etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Man Tera Tan Mera”(1971) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mukesh. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

Only the audio of this song is available. Like most Mukesh songs, this song too bears the mdas touch of Mukesh, but this song somehow managed to end up becoming an obscure song. The fact that the movie failed at the box office obviously has to be the main reason why this song failed to get enough exposure among music lovers.


Song-Zindagi ke mod par ham tum miley aur kho gaye(Man Tera Tan Mera)(1971) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

zindagi ke mod par
hum tum miley aur kho gaye
ajnabi thhe aur phir ham ajnabi se ho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

pal do pal jazbaat ki ee
pal do pal jazbaat ki
lahron mein kitna josh tha
ek zara si der mein
toofaan ke dhaare kho gaye ae
kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par
hum tum miley aur kho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

dil ke har ek taar ne ae
dil ke har ek taar ne
kya jaaniye kya ?? hai
saaj chheda aur sabhi nagme pareshaan ho gaye ho gaye
zindagi ke mod par hum tum miley aur kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par

jis kadar nazdeek aaye
jis kadar nazdeek aaye
faasle badhte gaye ae
do musaafir kab miley hain
par pahuch kar kho gaye ae
kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par hum tum miley aur kho gaye
ajnabi thhe aur phir ham ajnabi se ho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 66# Singer – Mukesh
———————————————–——————–

Just few days back I came across this song that I am presenting today. After listening to it I was feeling like maybe I had heard it on ‘radio’ many many years back. When I listened to it once I just kept listening to it again and again and with every new day this song is growing on me, on and on. The song is from the 1978 movie ‘Pal Do Pal Ka Saath’ and it is sung by Mukesh ji.

‘Pal Do Pal Ka Saath’ was directed by BR Ishara for Kaveri Films, Bombay. The cast of actors includes Shekhar Kapoor, Rama Vij, Shamli (New Discovery), Asit Sen, Paintal, Johny Whisky, Aarti, Tiger, Mishri Lal, Mohammad Ali, Amal Sen, Narayan Gwalani, Hameed, Sitaram, Jasbir, Prakash Joshi, Vijay Nangia, Bhaiyalal Sharma, Kashi Prasad Chaurasia and others.

This movie has four songs penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri, Yogesh, Balkavi Bairagi and Dev Kohli. Music for this movie is composed by Shyam Saagar. One song from this movie had been posted on the blog earlier in 2014 i.e. four years back and it was introduced by Sudhir ji – ‘Chupke Se Peechhe Se Aa Ke’ sung by Rafi Saab and lyrics of this song are by Dev Kohli.

As mentioned by Sudhir ji in his post this movie seems to be an ‘obscure movie’ though it contains ‘gems of songs’ (‘veritable gems’ as Sudhir ji has mentioned in his post) as we can say for the earlier song and the today’s song after listening to them. I don’t remember to have heard about this movie earlier and not gone through its information before. It was only after listening to the today’s song that I searched for its details in HFGK Vol V and also read the earlier post on the blog. This movie was passed by censor board on 07.04.1978.

Almost forty years have passed since the movie and its music had been created, however listening to its songs revives the memories of the music of those years and Mukesh ji’s singing of the many other songs for Yogesh ji. Yes, today’s song is penned by Yogesh.

Since the movie was an obscure movie I think its songs were also forgotten easily. I am not able to locate online, the other two songs of this film. As per Geet Kosh, these are solo songs in the voices of Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey. We have to search for them and need to bring them here for our listening pleasure. Till then let us listen to this wonderful composition of Shyam Saagar and savour the magic Yogesh ji’s words and Mukesh ji’s singing…

Only the audio of this song is available as of now. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs please.

Song – Anuraagi Mann Sab Kuchh Seh Le (Pal Do Pal Ka Saath) (1978) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Shyam Saagar

Lyrics

anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le
har uljhan mein
hans ke tu rah le
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le

ik sang tera
parichay gehra
janam janam ka ye naata re
ik sudh kho kar
besudh ho kar
geet tumhaare hi gaata re
do chehron ka tu ik darpan
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le

mita’ti nahin hai prem ki rekha
toofaanon ke bhi aane se
tripti adhoori
rah jaati hai
saagar ko bhi
paa jaane se
ho na ho poora tera samarpan
anuraagi mann . . .
har uljhan mein
hans ke tu rah le
anuraagi mann sab kuchh sah le

———————————————————
Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)
———————————————————

अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले
हर उलझन में
हंस के तू रह ले
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ल

इक संग तेरा
परिचय गहरा
जनम जनम का ये नाता रे
इक सुध खो कर
बेसुध हो कर
गीत तुम्हारे ही गाता रे
दो चेहरों का तू इक दर्पण
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले

मिटती नहीं है प्रेम कि रेखा आ
तूफानों के भी आने से
तृप्ति अधूरी
रह जाती है
सागर को भी
पा जाने से
हो न हो पूरा तेरा समर्पण
अनुरागी मन. . .
हर उलझन में
हंस के तू रह ले
अनुरागी मन सब कुछ सह ले

“Chori Chori”(1973) was Produced and directed by Keval P Kashyap for KPK Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Sanjay, Radha Saluja, Bindu, Gulshan Bawra, Jageerdaar, Kamran, Ifthikhar, Lalita Chatterji, Sapru, Asit Sen, Tuntun, Dhumal, Yashodhara Katju, Bhagwan, Sundar, Brahmchari, Jankidas, Jugal Kishore, Subroto, Vijay Dutt, Manohar Deepak, Birbal, Madhu Apte, Jerry, Kishore Sharma, Gulab Singh, Hamid, Sooraj, Darshan, Bina Bhalla, Mridula, Veerendra Kaushik, with guest appearances by Jeetendra, Shashi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Simi Garewal, Sameer, Jagdeep, Paintal, Mohan Choti, Maruti, Shakti Samanta.

This movie, which is far less known than “Chori Chori”(1956), had six songs that are equally obscure.

Here is the first song from “Chori Chori”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan, just like what was the case for “Chori Chori”(1956). In reality it was just Shankar, seeing that Jaikisha had expired in 1970.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Chori Chori”(1973) makes its debut in the blog.
PS-One partial video is available. One can see that this song is lip synced by Shashi Kapoor.

Song-Vaasta hi na jab raha tumse (Chori Chori)(1973) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

vaasta hi na jab raha tumse
phir jafaaon ka kya gila tumse
vaasta hi na jab raha tumse
phir jafaaon ka kya gila tumse
tum kisi gair ki amaanat ho
kaisa shiqva-gila bhala tumse
vaasta hi na jab raha

dard de ke paraaye ho baithhe
kaise maangoon main ab dava tumse
dard de ke paraaye ho baithhe
kaise maangoon main ab dava tumse
kam se kam jhoothhi tassali dete
haaye ye bhi na ho saka tumse
vaasta hi na jab raha

chand roti hui yaadon ke siva
dekh lo kuchh nahin liya tumse
chand roti hui yaadon ke siva
dekh lo kuchh nahi liya tumse
yaaron hanste ho mujhpe khoob hanso
aur ho bhi sakega kya tumse
vaasta hi na jab raha

uski kismat pe rashq aataa hai
jiske dil ka jahaan basa tumse
uski kismat pe rashq aataa hai
jiske dil ka jahaan basa tumse
achchhi kismat hi nahin thhi apni
kaise kah doon bura hua tumse
vaasta hi na jab raha tumse
phir jafaaon ka kya gila tumse
vaasta hi na jab raha
