Hullo to all of Atuldom

I seem to be running short of time daily. And I have missed many dates in the month of DECEMBER for which I would have loved to atleast write out the lyrics and send it to Atulji for appropriate posts. Birthdates of Shatrughan Sinha, Dilip Kumar, Rajnikant, Raj Kapoor, Om Prakash, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan etc. I even had songs of Suresh Oberoi, Mahipal, John Abraham ready in my head. Atulji surprised me by nearly missing Mohd. Rafi’s birthdate, but trust the eternal Rafi Bhakts in our group to send in posts on time and remind Atulji (he always tells that he is bad at remembering dates 🙂 🙂 ).

29th December is another important date for bhakts of Hindi films of the 70s- it is the birthdate of Kaka aka Rajesh Khanna of the charming smile that got him a huge female-fan-following that was crazy enough to write him letters dipped in blood, and I have read in numerous articles and heard hundreds of interviews about how his car would be covered with kisses of his fans. Rajesh Khanna the first real superstar of Bollywood who had 15 consecutive solo hits from 1969 to 1971- an unbroken record. He had 127 films (117 released and 11 unreleased) as protagonist and only 22 multi-star films. He had a fan-following among his fraternity too and Mehmood parodied him in “Bombay To Goa” where the driver and conductor of the bus were called ‘Rajesh’ and ‘Khanna’.

We all know that Rajesh Khanna’s career had a great take off with the double role that he played in Shakti Samantha’s ‘Aradhana’ singing “ho oooo,he aeae, ha aaaa” on an open jeep travelling alongside the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway’s toy train to a bashful Sharmila Tagore pretending to be disturbed in her reading of the Alister Maclean’s “Where Eagles Dare”. But his pairings with Asha Parekh, Mumtaz, Hema Malini, Rekha, Rakhee, Zeenat and others of the 70s were no less eye-pleasing. His most popular songs may have been sung by Kishore Kumar but can anyone forget “Ye jo chilman hai dushman hai humari”; “bina badra ke bijuriya kaise chamke”; “humse ka bhool hui jo yeh sazaa humka mili”; “arre jana hai toh jao boolayenge nahin” or the forever classic “zindagi kaisi hai paheli hai re”. A lot of the singers of the 70s and 80s have had opportunity to give playback for Kaka but we cannot escape the Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna songs.

For today’s post I have chosen a Rajesh Khanna – Hema Malini song- this was a favourite pair of mine post “zindagi ek safar hai suhana” and Kudrat, Mehbooba, Rajput etc only made me love this pair even more. They have appeared in 10-15 movies together.

The song I chose is from the 1979 released Mehmood directed “Janta Hawaldaar”. Hema Malini had an extended guest appearance in the movie. I have also managed to steer clear of ‘Kishore Kumar for Rajesh Khanna’ addiction as also the Anand Bakshi- R D Burman strangle. The song is sung by Anwar in a very Rafi-like manner with Majrooh as the lyricist ad Rajesh Roshan as composer. And the added bonus in the song is Rajesh Khanna has danced differently.

This may be my last post for the year. So I thought I should take this opportunity to wish all of Atuldom a very Happy 2019. And close the year thinking of Kaka or Jatin Khanna (his birthname)- our very own Rajesh Khanna.

Chorus

Lyrics

aadhi roti saara kabaab

are ye ka nakli toda maarat ho
asli toda humse suno
taa tadkat taa tadkat tai
dhirkat dham dhadakat dhai
tam tadhkat thai

aaaaaa

kal raat chaand ke upar thi kaali ghata
ande ki bhains ki tumne bana di ghazal

arrey waah

achcha to shaayar bhi hain janaab
bol mere murge kukdu koon
haah jaisi boli waisa jawab

udta patang hai dori se
samjhe ji tum

ab humaare sawaal ka jawaab do
humne baadaam ke andar dekha aadmi
kya iska matlab
ab tum bataao ji

inne badaam ke andar dekha aadmi
aisa kahin bhi toone suna hai ri
arey hum bataate hain
baadaam aankon ko bhi toh kehte hain log
inmein jo jhaanke
dikhe wahi aadmi

arey waah
aur kya
arey waah
aur kya
haar gayi main to tumse janaab
ban gayi murgi kukdu koon
heyy jaisi boli waisa jawaab
bol ri kabutari, gutar goon goon

haa aadhi roti saara kabaab
bol mere murge kukdu koon
aadi roti saara kabaab
bol mere murge kukdu koon
bol mere murge kukdu koon
bol mere murge kukdu koon

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 48
—————————————–
Ichak daanaa beechak daanaa daane oopar daanaa from ‘Shri 420’ (1955) has become one of the immortal songs of the 1950s. I can watch the video clip of this song umpteen times without reaching the saturation point. For our generation, it was an unique song in that it was the first song for us where riddles had been incorporated with answers in the song itself. n this song, a teacher (Nargis) is teaching her students the identification of a fruit, a vegetable and a bird through the riddles. This was a novelty and the song became a hit in our school so much so that during the recess, we used to devise out own riddles, albeit sometimes with wrong hints for others to solve them.

Vasant Desai had a fairly long stint of thirty plus years in the film industry, and yet his total assignments as a music director are less than fifty. It is said that he did not take up or did not get many assignments because of his style. His style is deeply rooted in the classical and folk traditions, and he maintained that style throughout his career. In the 60s and 70s, his assignments are few and far between, and yet, with each outing as a composer, he has left an indelible mark.
