Blog Day : 4003 Post No. : 15106

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 37
——————————————————————————————

This day, ten years ago – as such sections are generally titled in newspapers that carry a review of their news content from 50 or 100 or 150 years in the past. Well yes, our antecedents are more modest, and so we hark back 10 years into our collection on the blog. On 4th July, ten years ago, the films that got posted were,

 

Jauhri 1951
Dholak 1951
Chaand Mere Aaja 1960
Bank Manager 1959
Faulaad 1963
Jawaab 1970

 

Of these six films, three had made their debut on that date. The debut making films are ‘Jauhri’ (1951), ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ (1960) and ‘Jawaab’ (1970).

And then, of these six films, three have been yippeee’d so far – ‘Dholak’, ‘Bank Manager’ and ‘Faulaad’. Of the remaining six, one film is on the threshold of being announced as a yippee film. And this film is ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’. So we are posting the final song of this film, to formally announce this film as being yippeee’d today.

Reminds me, it would be an interesting analysis to know, how many of the Ten Year Challenge posts are resulting in the film being yippeee’d. Meaning that the film’s debut date and the yippee date are exactly 10 years apart.

The film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ of 1960 has 7 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Of these, six are already showcased on our blog. We bring on board, the final song of this film today. It is interesting to note that, as per the Geet Kosh, six of the songs of this film are available on gramophone records. And the 7th, which is today’s song, is available only in the film’s soundtrack. Thankfully, the video clip of this song is available online.

The song is written by IC Kapoor. Music composition is by Chitragupt. And the singing voice is of Mohammed Rafi. On screen, this song is performed by Bharat Bhushan. The song is presented in a party, where apparently, the tone of the song does not quite jell with the mood and ambience of a get together of the rich and well to do people.

In any case, we bring on board the last and final song of this film, adding it to the list of films with all songs covered –  over a period of ten years – exactly. 🙂

 

Song – O Duniyawaalo Kaisa Tumhaara Ye Sansaar Hai (Chaand Mere Aaja) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – IC Kapoor, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

o duniya waalo..oo
oo oo oo oo
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
jhoothe ki jeet yahaan
sachche ki haar hai
jhoothe ki jeet yahaan
sachche ki haar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

bade bade bazaar saja kar
gali gali mein dhol baja kar
sona dikhla peetal bechen
gin kar paise poore letey
dil ka sauda jaan ka sauda
hota hai imaar ka sauda
khoon pasina bik jaata hai
maut aur jeena bik jaata hai
pooch raha hai tumse bolo
kaisa ye vyohaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

aansoo le lo aanhen le lo
hasrat le lo chaahen le lo
taambe ka ik tukda phenko
toote dil ki duaaen le lo
loot chuke ho duniya saar
is par bhi taqraar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

sapnon ki duniya ko chhodo
asliyat se munh na modo
kab tak jhoothi shaan rahegi
do din to ye jaan rahegi
saaz samay ka bol raha hai
raaz ke taale khol raha hai
kaath ki handiya jal ke rahegi
khota ye vyopaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo
kaisa tumhaara ye sansaar hai
o duniya waalo..oo

ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ
ओ ओ ओ ओ
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
झूठे की जीत यहाँ
सच्चे की हार है
झूठे की जीत यहाँ
सच्चे की हार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

बड़े बड़े बाज़ार सजा कर
गली गली में ढ़ोल बजा कर
सोना दिखला पीतल बेचें
गिन कर पैसे पूरे लेते
दिल का सौदा जान का सौदा
होता है ईमान का सौदा
खून पसीना बिक जाता है
मौत और जीना बिक जाता है
पूछ रहा है तुमसे बोलो
कैसा ये व्योहार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

आँसू ले लो आहें ले लो
हसरत ले लो चाहें ले लो
तांबे का इक टुकड़ा फेंको
टूटे दिल की दुआएं ले लो
लूट चुके हो दुनिया सारी
इस पर भी तक़रार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

सपनों की दुनिया को छोड़ो
असलियत से मुंह ना मोड़ो
कब तक झूठी शान रहेगी
दो दिन तो ये जान रहेगी
साज़ समय का बोल रहा है
राज़ के ताले खोल रहा है
काठ की हँडिया जल के रहेगी
खोटा ये व्योपार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो
कैसा तुम्हारा ये संसार है
ओ दुनिया वालो॰॰ओ

(Cricket related memories & statistics #1)

During the 15k celebrations on our blog, our beloved Rajaji in his post – ‘Dil To Maane Naa, while congratulating all and wishing that this ‘musical journey’ just goes on and on … mentioned about the next target ‘15921’…!!! Now everyone was thinking of this ‘15921’? But it took Rajaji himself to give some hint and then it was disclosed to everyone. The figure was related to ‘Cricket Statistics’.

At that time, I had decided an article but as I progressed with the selection of the song and finally getting delayed with the article, I decided to do two articles first about the statistics part of my journey on the blog and the second one about my cricket related memories. So, here is the first article being posted today…

The reason for Rajaji’s mentioning of 15921 was Sachin’s runs scored in test cricket and after 15k we should look forward to this new target. This post of mine is too related to statistics but not of cricket though given by the Cricket World Cup around, statistics do also trigger some beautiful memories. However here I am looking for my own statistics on the blog and taking a look on how it has been for me so far on the blog.

My first lyrics contribution ‘Pyaar Ka Badlaa Mujhe Dekho Kaisa Milaa’ was posted on the blog on 13.09.2012 which was 1518th day for the blog and this was the 6633rd post on the blog. I tried my first article for the blog in Feb’2013 and it was posted on 26.02.2013.  This was 1684th day for the blog and this post was the 7565th post. (The song covered in this post was ‘Sang Mere Nikley Thhe Saajan’ from ‘Phir Wahi Raat (1980).

After that it took me 752 days to reach my twenty-fifth post on 20.03.2015 – ‘Na Koi Paisa Na Ilm Banaao Bambai Mein Film and that was 2436th day for the blog. It was the 10962nd post on the blog.

I feel very happy on my ‘quarter century’ and it reminded me of my favourite commentator Sushil Doshi’s words – “aur isi ke saath ye (Dilip Vengsarkar ki) quarter century poori”. . . (I don’t know why but I mostly remember ‘quarter century’ with Sushil Doshi’s commentary is for Dilip Vengsarkar. May be because whenever Vengsarkar was coming to bat he would easily score his first twenty-five runs very quickly 🙂 .

After that I was slowly getting into regular writing of articles for the blog. So, I reached my fiftieth post on 05.09.2015 with – ‘Krishna Krishna Bolo Krishna which was 2604th day and 11385th post for the blog. I entered the nineties on 31.07.2016 and it was 12280th post on the blog and the blog had become 2935 days older then.

Nineties mein aane ke baad, while I was eager to get to my first hundred, on the other side I was constantly remembering Chetan Chauhan one of my most favourite cricketer who never reach a hundred in test cricket, though me and many of friends were always praying for him, and always sincerely wished that he should get a hundred on his name. Well, it took me eighty-two days to reach from ninety to hundred. This was on 21.10.2016, and the song covered was ‘Bade Dinon Mein Khushi Ka Din Aaya’ (very appropriately though) and it was 3017th day for the blog, 12475th post of the blog.

Cricket mein century banaane ke baad jitni khushi ek batsman ko hoti hogi utni hi khushi mujhe bhi huyi 🙂 . By the time I completed my hundred posts on the blog, in the other category that is ‘lyrics contribution’ I had already scored over three hundred. And, since I always think myself an all-rounder (or a good all-rounder at least (not necessarily in cricket)) I was reminded of the many great achievers who scored a ‘hundred’ in both batting and bowling or bowling and batting in test cricket (or one day internationals too).

So, I was very happy on my ‘double’ achievement and it reminded me the doubles by the top famous all-rounders in test cricket. For me it was always of Kapil Dev.

In this process I had also completed a hundred in ‘Devnagri Script’ category and so I was the first to have scored a ‘hundred’ in the three (main) categoris on the blog. After that Sudhir ji reached a hundred in the ‘lyrics contribution’ category and that was a ‘Senior’s entry’ to this ‘triple’s club’ 🙂 .

My one hundred and fiftieth post came on the 3545th day of the blog with this song – ‘Jin Khoja Tin Paayiyaan’ – on 02.04.2018, the post number being 14228th.

Reaching 175 did reminded me of Kapil Dev’s 175 against Zimbabwe, how can anyone forget that? I remember we had gone to the nearby city for some work and when I was heading to my home in the colony few of my friends told me about the score of Indian batting which was very shocking for me. As I reached home Kapil Dev was already on the crease, so what I do was to take the transistor with me in the ground- so that I can concentrate alone (and may be the transmission was not clear inside home, I don’t remember it fully now) near my home where we use to play cricket to listen the commentary there because the match was already very tense. But as Kapil Dev started hitting the ball to each corner of the ground the excitement was on the top and the rest, we all know is a history now.

My first lyrics contribution was the 6633rd post on the blog. And today as I share this post on this 3996th day for the blog, this is the 15091st post on the blog.

Before I joined the blog, the blog had 340 songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi already covered on the blog and the today’s song is Sahir Saab’s 623rd song on the blog. In between I had also completed a century of my contribution for Sahir Ludhianvi songs on 27.03.2015, with the song “Teri Karam Kahaani Teri Aatma Bhi Jaane“,  on the 2443rd day for the blog, and so far I think have been successful in contributing around 130 songs of Sahir Saab. May be the final tally will cross 150 if everything goes well. The journey is on!!! 🙂

In between I had an opportunity to share a long song six-part song – “Sambhaalo Ae Watan Waalon Watan Apna Sambhaalo“, and I think I can take it as the highest score in an innings in any type of contribution here (lyrics and lyrics in Devnagri script) except the write up/post, and will always remind of the highest score in test cricket which is 400* not out by Brian Lara. 🙂

On the way I do secretly completed my fourth hundred in ‘lyrics contribution’ (like the third one), however nowadays in this ‘age of technology’ the secrets cannot be hold for too longer and when I was silently moving towards another ‘achievement’, which I thought would also pass on secretly, there were already ‘some signals’ asking me about it and I realized that ‘ab raaz chhupaana mushqil hai’. . . 😉

For today’s post too I have selected a song penned by Sahir Saab and composed to music by Ravindra Jain ji. This movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain’ (1979) was the first collaboration of Sahir Ludhianvi and Ravindra Jain the other being ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ in 1980. All songs for ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ have already been covered on the blog.

Today we get introduced to the film ‘Hum Tere Aashiq Hain’ from 1979.

‘Hum Tere Aashiq Hain’ was directed by Prem Sagar for his home production Prem Sagar Films, Bombay and under the banner of Sagar Art Enterprises. It was presented by Ramanand Sagar.

It had Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Sheetal, Keshto Mukherjee, Arvind Trivedi, Ram Sethi, Mac Mohan, Shammi, Birbal, Jankidas, Paro, Aashoo, Shobhna Shah, Madhu Shah, Shanti, Aasha, Nirmal Kumar, Chander Mohan Khanna, Dhawan, and Ramlal. Tom Alter makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Kamleshwar and Ramanand Sagar. Suhrid Kar, CL Kavish and Kulwant Jaani were writers for additional screenplay and dialogues. Script and scenario for this movie was written by KK Shukla. Editing of this movie was done by Lachmandass. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.11.1979.

This movie had six songs all written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Ravindra Jain. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

For the preparation of this post I had requested Atul ji for the records and I can say here that the one going through this details maintained by Atul ji can only realize the efforts put by him and by Sudhir ji too in recording of the statistics on the blog and its retrieval whenever they want to have it for some special occasion (may be some auto ‘alerts’). I salute both of them!!!

Finally remembering all the statisticians in Indian Cricket and paying our tributes to their great works let us enjoy the today’s songs. They may be the first one to know of all the approaching milestones and records like our Atul ji or Sudhir ji (by the way I remember Sudhir Vaidya as a famous statistician in Indian Cricket history) and they all may be first one to know all the raaz’s which the general public may not be aware unless disclosed or made public 🙂 , and may be in other fields of our society we have some secrets/mystery which were never disclosed/solved. . .

And since I have not watched this movie I cannot say and disclose the ‘hidden’ raaz’s of this movie, except this song 😉

However, it seems to be an interesting movie to watch. For now let us enjoy this beautiful song.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Reading the title of the post, you must be wondering – “ये क्या हो रहा है?” (“What is this going on?”). This song – who says this song is not yet posted. Goodness, this film is yippeee’d long back. So why are we re-posting this song? Sudhir seems to have taken up certain vice (or vices) with unlikeable after effects. 😀 😀

Well, no and yes. No – I have not taken up any such vices 🙂 that may impair my abilities to make decisions about posting songs. And yes – this song, from film ‘Madhumati’ of 1958, is already posted here on our blog. The film ‘Madhumati’ made its debut here on 1st May, 2009. The eleven songs of this film made their appearances over the subsequent four plus years, and film was yippeee’d on 4th Jul, 2013. This song originally appeared on 3rd May, 2009. ‘Madhumati’ is a done deal.

Of course your question still remains – “ये क्या हो रहा है?”. The answer to that follows.

I will try to make the long story short. Beginning of this month, Bakshi ji and I were in Bombay, to attend the annual two day seminar titled ‘Cine Music Beyond Entertainment’, which is arranged by our friend Shri Kushal Gopalka, every year. In one of the post session discussions, I came to know about a very interesting anecdote. The session was on the life and work of music director Vasant Desai.

The anecdote is about the 1971 film ‘Guddi’. The Geet Kosh lists three songs for this film,

The first two songs are penned by Gulzar. The third is a traditional bhajan, written by Meerabai, one of the greatest saints of the Bhakti Movement in India, which originated in India in the eighth century AD. Meerabai, who belonged to the royal family of Mewar (in Rajasthan) spent her time here on this sub continent, in the fifteenth century AD. Music for these three songs is composed by Vasant Desai. All three songs are in the voice of Vani Jairam. When the film released in theaters, it had only these three songs in it.

Now, one of the supervisory activities that the producer and distributor staff undertake, especially in the first one or two weeks of the film exhibition, is that they go to select cinema halls where the film is being shown. They will be present in the hall as the film is being shown, and they will also mingle with the crowd during intermission and at the end of the film. The objective is to pick up and gather live feedback about the film from the audience. It helps them to make some choices and educated decisions about the future exhibition plans.

One thing that happened during this exercise was that the team gathered feedback that sounded negative. One part was the use of only one playback voice, and that too a very fresh debut. Plus the overall summary of live audience feedback sounded disheartening and negative. Immediate discussions happened involving Hrishikesh Mukherji, the producers (Rupam Chitra) and the distributors. One recommendation that came out of these discussions was to somehow modify the mix of songs in the film. It was felt that the bhajan song (of Meerabai) should go. What should replace it? How to create a new song for the film at a short notice? Please note that this description of events is for the very first one or two days after the release of the film.

One of the recommendations from the distributors was to include another song, preferably by Lata Mangeshkar. After quick discussions, it was decided to re-use the song of ‘Madhumati’. I really wonder how fast the decision and action taken process worked. Approvals were sought and taken – Bimal Roy’s estate, Salil Chowdhury et al. The team was reassembled, and the song was picturised. Apparently, the Meera bhajan was in the same setting in the film. At the party, Jaya Bhaduri is performing the Bhajan by Meerabai – “Hari Bin Kaise Jiyun Ri” – an expression of her waiting for Samit to come to the party. This song from ‘Madhumati’ fitted the emotional-expression criteria to the T.

The song was picturzed, it was edited into the film, replacing the bhajan, the censor certificate for revision to the film was applied for and taken. Multiple copies of the revised reel of the film was quickly processed and produced on emergency basis, and distributed to the theatres for immediate change to the film being shown. How fast this whole process worked – one may gauge the speed and success of this whole exercise from the fact that the revision appeared in the theatres before the first week of exhibition was complete, i.e. within the first 5 or 6 days only.

Now, interestingly, Vasant Desai was away from Bombay at that time. Important point to note is that this whole decision making and replacement process happened without the involvement of Vasant Desai, the music director.

Possibly many of our learned friends in this musical bandwagon may already be aware of this. I was not, so this was a startling discovery for me. I must add hurriedly that yes, I have seen this films, possibly more than once, but somehow I do not carry any memory of this song being present in this film.

The booklets of the film do not contain this song. And hence, the Geet Kosh also does not list this song. This song does not appear on the EPs/LPs of this film. This song has no other status in relation to this film, except that yes, it is included in the film. The credits at the beginning of the film remain unchanged. Vani Jairam is the only playback voice, and Vasant Desai is the sole music director. And so, the video of this song is the only evidence that this song is present in the film.

A very, very interesting episode. For me, it brought into very sharp focus, an idea that songs from earlier films are at times, re-used in later films. Before this discussion happened in Bombay, I was aware of one or two such instances. They were just interesting trivia in the mind. After this discussion highlighted this activity so sharply, an idea started to form in my mind. I started to search for more such instances. I searched through my own memory, I researched the remarks and footnotes in the Geet Kosh, and I discussed this with friends and collectors in our group and in my circle, trying to gather more information about such re-use of songs. And when I am able to gather a sizeable list, the thought came to the mind – this is a new series to discuss this very interesting facet of the Hindi film music.

As I am gathering information about such instances, I also became aware af the various modes of re-use. Yes, the re-use happens not only just ‘as is’, but there even are further variations on how this re-use may occur. As we proceed with the series, I will be highlighting and discussing these different re-use ‘styles’. It does make for a very interesting discussion.

And so, here is the first offering of this series. The song from ‘Madhumati’ of 1958 is re-used – as is, ditto, no change – 13 years later in ‘Guddi’ of 1971. Ah, I must correct myself. One change does happen. The original song in ‘Madhumati’ has three stanzas. The re-use version in ‘Guddi’ has only two stanzas. The first stanza of the ‘Madhumati’ version is left out.

This is the very first re-use ‘style’ – the song has been directly used and copied as is. No alterations, no additions, no other changes. Just get approvals, and simply insert the earlier song, as it fits into the storyline. This is the simplest form of re-use. I will be presenting more such instances moving forward.

So view this associated video clip, and listen to the original recording of this song, now being lip synced by Jaya Bhaduri. The scenario is so utterly different. The original setting in ‘Madhumati’ is mountains, forests, river and waterfall. The entire natural surroundings seem to be participating in the earlier picturization of the song. In this later ‘Guddi’ incarnation, this is just a song being sung at a party. The performer, very naturally, is just standing still, as the audience simply watches and waits for the song as it progresses. Absolutely minimal activity and movement in this scene.

Besides Jaya, we can also see Sumita Sanyal, Utpal Dutt and Vijay Sharma in the clip, as family members watching the impromptu performance. Samit Bhanj, for whose benefit and in whose wait, this song is being performed, is seen arriving at the party, just as the song gets started, and he thoughtfully waits just outside the entrance to the room, listening to the song being performed. Amongst the guests at the party, there are many familiar faces – of junior artists that are part of such scenes in films. But their names remain obscure.

Before I close this write-up, another very interesting aside. The film ‘Guddi’ has already been yippeee’d on our blog, as of 20th March, 2013. That is, as per the Geet Kosh list of songs. But now, we have one more additional song from this film. A repeat, but nonetheless another song that is part of this film, performed by the actor(s) in this film. Another cateogry called for – ‘yippeee+‘ – finding more songs in a film that are officially listed for the film. 😀 😀 I am sure there are more than one such instances earlier also, when songs for certain films have been posted that do not appear in the official list of songs.

So. . . starting this interesting journey of repeat songs in Hindi films. I hope this thread will interest you.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Not all journeys have a pre-determined destination.

Sometimes a traveler sets off on a journey, purely with the intention of travel. For how long, which specific places he will travel to, where he will stop, who and what he will encounter…these are all unknown.

All he knows is that he has the desire to travel – and will travel for as long as he has such desire, and the ability to travel.

And it is just as well that he travels without a set destination or time-frame. That would take away from the enjoyment of the journey itself. It is not that the travel is meaningless – it certainly has a purpose. Just that the purpose is to enjoy the journey, not to keep a destination or time-frame in focus.

I’d like to think this blog is one such journey – and Atul is this traveler.

Atul has himself said many times, when he posted his first song on this blog on the 19th of July 2008, he had no idea what it would go on to become. As a music lover, all he wanted was to have a blog of his own. A place where he could post songs of his choice and share his taste with other music lovers. Pretty simple, isn’t it?

At that time, he would’ve been happy if he could have got to a 1000 songs on the blog. That would have been huge.
2000? Amazing!
5000? Are you CRAZY?
10000? Ab bas bhi karo yaar, kuchh zyaada hi ho gaya

But this traveler never stopped travelling. One step at a time, he kept walking. The milestones kept passing by. He acknowledged them – but never stopped. Sort of like “nadiya chale chale re dhaara, chanda chale chale re taara, tumko chalna hoga, tumko chalna hoga”.

Along the way, he met fellow-travellers and became friends with them. They joined him on his journey, so he had company. But he never stopped.

Yes, he might have occasionally slowed down, but the most important thing is – he never stopped.

And that is the only reason we can today celebrate this mega-milestone.

The biggest to date.

15000.

Yes, that’s a thousand songs, fifteen times over.

Mind-boggling.

But, to me, that’s not the whole story.

If you take a flight from Moscow to Vladivostok, it takes about 8 ½ hours.
The Trans Siberian Express train takes about a week.

If I had the time, I know how I’d like to travel.
I’d like to breathe in every moment of the travel – not rush it.

This blog has not rushed through these 15000 songs mindlessly, just for the purpose of statistics. If it had done so, it could’ve reached this milestone much earlier.

No, that was not the idea of this blog at all. Ever.

As I said earlier, Atul’s idea was to share songs with other music-lovers. To have these songs introduced on the blog, discussed in detail with appropriate credits to artistes, with a video/audio and full lyrics.

That was – and continues to be – the format for every single song from day one.

And when you have a format of this type, you want every song to have its own space and time. If you post 20 songs on one day, are you doing justice to each individual song? Won’t it just get lost in the crowd?

So the pace of this blog recognizes this important aspect of music appreciation – don’t overload.

So the bigger story (for me at least) is HOW we have got to 15000.

One song at a time, ranging from 1 to about 7 songs a day (7 itself is a high number), we have come this far over TEN years and NINE months. Yes, we are in our 129th month now. And the posting has not been sporadic – it has been EVERY SINGLE DAY (except for very few days when there’s been no posting).

THAT, for me, is truly astounding.

For ONE person to have THIS level of dedication, commitment and discipline, despite all sorts of constraints along the way – THAT to me is mind-boggling.

Yes, we guest posters have joined on the journey, and posted from time to time. (I’m saying this a bit hesitatingly given my own limited contribution in the last year). But, as Sudhirji pointed out in a recent post, Atul’s posts are 3 times more than all our guest posts put together. That shows the sheer weight-lifting he does.

And mind you, this is just the number of posts. There’s so much more on the blog- the various statistics, by movie, by year, by artiste and so on. And anniversary dates. Atul has truly built a repository for the ages.

That brings me to my next point.

The repository.

It is not that songs aren’t available on the net. Of course they are. There are songs all over the place.

But this blog is different. It doesn’t treat a song as just a song. There’s a narrative about it, a background wherever possible. About the film, the artistes involved. And Atul is a stickler for accuracy, so he does his level best to get the facts and lyrics 100% accurate. It’s not easy with some old songs where the audio itself isn’t clear – but he makes a genuine effort. And that is because of the type of person he is – no shortcuts, no compromises.

All of this means that the reader gets as accurate a source as possible.

Then consider the songs themselves.

Some of these songs are rare songs, which were not even available earlier on the net. Some others were available, but with limited detail. When these songs were made available here, the blog tried to give the song, and its artistes, full respect.

This is what makes this blog a treasure house, a repository for generations.

While on this point, I think I must mention fellow travelers (we call them Atulites) who have contributed greatly to enriching this blog.

Atul will be the first person to admit that his own knowledge of songs and artistes would never have been enough to make the blog what it is today. This is nothing to be ashamed of. All of us know more about some songs and eras, and less about others.

But we thankfully have some “maharathis” (they know who they are, so I won’t name them 🙂 ) who, between them are an ocean of knowledge, and like walking encyclopedias. Their contribution, whether through posts or through comments, is truly outstanding. They have enriched this blog so much, taking it to a different level altogether.

So when we talk of team effort, this is a perfect example of it.

This brings me to my next point of awe.

If this blog had been a commercial venture, I can understand a business posting songs every day, to maximize its views, and earn revenue as a result, through advertising or other means.

But Atul has been doing this as a labour of love. It started as that, in 2008 – and continues to this day with the same intent.

So a labour of love, posting songs every single day, for 129 months at a stretch, to the level of detail and accuracy that this blog has – just pause for a moment to let that sink in.

Pause.

So while we celebrate the 15000 milestone, I request everyone to try to appreciate the true significance of it.

It’s not just the number – it’s the weight of the love and effort that has gone into it. It’s like 15000 kg of love and effort.

Along the way, this blog has done something else too. Possibly unintended initially, but as “Blog Ke Side-Effects” 🙂 , it has brought us Atulites together. Many of us have met each other, we now have a whatsapp group, all thanks to the blog, and Atul.

For me, personally, it has been a very enriching journey. I’ve been fortunate to have been involved right from day one – and along the way I’ve got to know some wonderful people with an amazing level of knowledge about HFM. I’ve got to know SO many songs only through this blog.

I really can’t thank Atul enough for all this.

So even if my participation has been very limited of late, this blog, and everyone associated with it, will always have a very special place in my heart.

And on this occasion, I can only wish that the journey goes on and on as we head towards the next target of 15921. 🙂

A line that comes to mind is “apni pyaar ki gaadi chalti rahe, apni pyaar ki gaadi chalti rahe”. 🙂

Now onto the song for today.

I must admit it wasn’t easy for me to decide on a song for this occasion.

For one, not only has the blog already got 15000 songs, but even the songs still to be posted are mostly relatively new songs ( which I barely know), or lesser-known songs of a much earlier era than mine.

This makes my task somewhat difficult.

A song I had in mind got cancelled out because it had already been posted, so I had to renew my efforts.

But one thing. I did have an idea of the type of song I wanted to post.

I wanted a fun, lively song. After all it is a celebratory occasion, so why not a fun song?

The lyrics didn’t really matter too much, as long as it was a jhakkaas song. 🙂

While looking for random songs, I tend to think of the 1970s as my first choice of decade. The main reason for this is, it is the decade I grew up in – and there’s always a chance I’ll come across a song that I heard in my childhood, and that still happens to not be posted. This has happened on a few occasions with me.

I’ll be the first to admit that the 1970s songs signaled the end of what is popularly known as the golden era of music. By the time the 1970s came along, audience tastes had changed. Not just in India, but around the world. The hippie culture had come in, there was a sense of wanting to break away from the established order of things.

It was only natural that India too would be affected by this trend. Films are a good reflection of society – and films of the 1970s are markedly different from those of an earlier era.

Music, as a very important component of Indian films, also reflected this.

And no one exemplified this better than RD Burman.

RD (or Pancham as he was popularly known) was a trend-setter. Hugely gifted, he experimented a lot, with instruments, tunes and sounds. The audience, already ripe for change, embraced RD’s style wholeheartedly and made him a huge success.

It was not that RD could not compose traditional tunes – he could, and he did. But he also made a deliberate effort to invent his own style, to distinguish himself from his legendary father’s style.

I personally think music, like everything else, evolves. We need to recognize that times keep changing – and music needs an audience too. So if the audience is changing, why wouldn’t music change too?

So, as Tennyson said, “the old order changeth, yielding place to new”.

The song I have picked today is from my schoolboy days. I had heard it a few times then – we used to sing it in school. But somehow I never heard it after that, and had even forgotten all about it.

Recently I came across it again – and was surprised to find it hadn’t been posted yet.

Initially I was thinking of keeping it for an RD occasion, seeing as it has such an RD stamp about it – but then I guess this occasion is as good as any.

If we are celebrating 15000 songs on this blog, and Atul is the architect of it AND is also a 1970s schoolboy, why not a song that he might have heard in those days too?

Dil to maane na….meri jaan, meri jaan aa aa aa aa

Vintage RD & Asha Bhosle.

Ever since this song has come back into my life, I’ve enjoyed listening to it.

I hope you enjoy it too. Jhakkaas enough for you? 🙂

Congratulations to all of us, travelers on this journey, for the 15000-milestone.

And a special thanks to Atul for bringing us all together.

Looking forward to milestone 15921. 🙂

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this special occasion where we are now celebrating Fifteen thousand song-posts on the blog!!!  My heartiest congratulations to Atul ji, Sudhir ji and our respected senior and other team members on the blog and to all of our readers and well-wishers of this blog.

Well, my ‘love story’ (‘Prem Kahaani’, pehle ‘affair’ likhnewaala tha, phir ‘relationship’, phir thhik karke ‘love story’ likha  🙂 ) with this blog started around 2009 and it was because of Sahir Saab’s song ‘Dil Karta O Yaara Dildaara Mera Dil Karta’ (which I was looking because it was in my memory and nostalgic for me). So, thanks are very much due to Sahir Saab and I thank him for that. (I am sure he is accepting it there 🙂 )

My first comment was also on a song penned by Sahir Saab ‘Kashti Ka Khamosh Safar Hai’ – that was in 2009. Still, it took me three years more to become a contributor on this blog which happened in 2012.

How much I loved this blog and how HFM was my hobby earlier and became a passion later, and how HFM and this blog became an important part of my life thereafter, has been mentioned by me in few of my other posts on the blog. So, I will not go into more details on that. Rather I would like to write what I have not said earlier.

I came into writing when I was studying into eighth standard and my first article was published from a district newspaper from Akola then. It was an article about Chetan Chauhan when he was dropped from the playing side of India in test cricket. After that few more articles, all on cricket, were published in the same newspaper that time. Simultaneously after that I was approaching tenth standard and the board examinations, but still cricket was always on top in my mind. I did send few articles to the popular magazines in circulation then, but they were returned with some suggestions to me and that gave me a learning on how to plan and arrange the articles.

However, everything changed after I passed out matriculation and joined vocational subjects in eleventh instead of the subjects I liked most i.e. ‘Arts’. I have mentioned that journey on the blog in this article here. And during these two years I was more on movies and cricket and so as expected I failed in the examination. After that I joined a construction company and start working there and continued to working after that.

Now between all these years i.e. 1985 to 2009 I was working and continuing with my hobby of collecting cassettes, watching movies, listening music. And that was the biggest recreation and motivation for me during all those years. It so happened in 2009 that my close friends working in the same company with me in Kachchh but in different units/departments, push me to take up writing and that is how I started my blog and after that my younger daughter who used to write regularly became a part of that blog.

So finally the circle came to round and life brought me back to my passion of writing after a gap of almost twenty-seven years. And when I came into contact with this blog and started sending my contribution for lyrics earlier in 2012 I thought to give a try for writing articles and my first article appeared on the blog in 2013.

When I became a lyric contributor to the blog, that was my ‘new birth’ and at that point, life started again for me with new purpose, new energy, inspiration and motivation. And all these factors – purpose, energy, inspiration, motivation, celebration, and nostalgia keep growing further as my journey with the blog has been continued and still going …

Many childhood memories of watching movies, of songs from movies of yesteryears, keep surfacing and it was like one memory triggering other memory and bringing close to its related vague memories of those beautiful years. I started getting connected to many incidences which were lying dormant in my memory or which I had forgotten. And, I must say that since coming into the contact with the blog and specially after having HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) when I started sharing song posts of songs with the seventies, I had been transformed to that era only when my age was growing between eight to fifteen years.

In my circles whenever someone asks my age, I always used to tell them that ‘I am only seventeen years old and do not to grow more than that’. But the blog has reduced my age between eight-fifteen and I keep shuffling in that ‘age-era’ only i.e. if I considered up to 1983. And if I considered up to 1980 then my age is twelve years only.

I think I have also mentioned this earlier that finding this blog and being a part of this was a feeling like ‘this was the destination of my life’ and ‘all these years of life I was alive for this purpose only’. Always feeling fortunate and blessed to be a part of this journey and a member of this team …

Meeting some of the team members and seniors in the group during the ‘gang-outs’ has given many unforgettable memories and those are the most cherished moments of my life. And it is going to continue in future too 🙂 . The joy from discussions during such meetings and sharing of thoughts also cannot be expressed in words. And most importantly during such meetings I also got a chance to meet many respected and dedicated ‘like-minded peoples’ who in their own capacity are not less than a ‘encyclopaedia’ about yesteryears Hindi films and Hindi film music.

Thanking again to Atul ji and all other members and this wonderful blog. . . I am trying to express my feelings in the following ‘poem’;

उन यादों को, उन किस्सों को,
उस कहानी को,
शायद इसी दिन के लिए संभाला था
मन गुंजन करता ये भंवर
शायद इसी पल के लिए बेताब था

 दिल का ये भंवर
नादान ही तो था
कुंज कुंज करता गुंजन
भीतर भीतर बेचैन था
मिले जो आप तो ये चहकने लगा
सुरीली यादें बिखेरने लगा
बचपन फिर से मुस्काया
जवानी ने जैसे ली अंगडाई
एक कहानी को मंजिल मिली
कुछ यादों को भूली हुयी तारीख मिली
कुछ किस्सों को एक पड़ाव मिला
तन्हाई को एक महफ़िल मिली
साथी नए नए मिले
सुरीले सफ़र का कारवां मिला

 

And let us now enjoy the song with a vintage Kishore voice from the 1971 movie ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’. (Yes, the year of this movie is to be corrected as ‘1971’ on the blog and for the two posts already posted on the blog. Though in the second post one tag ‘songs of’ is correct i.e. ‘songs of 1971’)

‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ was directed by Randhir Kapoor for R.K. Films, Bombay. This was Randhir Kapoor’s first movie too and he was introduced or launched in style with also given direction of this movie. It was produced by Raj Kapoor.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hullo to Atuldom.

Let me wish all a very Happy New Year.

No, my post is not late by three and half months, it is just that India is a country which follows a calendar called Shak Samvat which the Hindus follow and Hijri which the Muslims follow. The new year by the Hijri calendar starts sometime in September but as far as the Hindu Calendar is concerned every region seems to have a different time of the year when the new year starts. And each region has a name for its New Year’s Day – Gudi Padva (Samsaar Padvo in Konkani), Ugadi, Poila Baishak (in East Indian States), Bighu (Bikhu in Uttarakhand), Bishuva Sankranti, Cheti Chand, Vishu or Chitra Vishu (in Kerala and Tamil Nadu), I am sure I am missing a few names in this list – what do I do, we have a vast country. But the common thread here is most of the above are in March – April of the Gregorian calendar (only in some parts new Year is during Diwali and southern part of Kerala has its new year at Onam). In Punjab it is Baishakhi, celebrated on the Mesha Sankraanti which occurs today for this year (generally it is 13th April). So now that explains why I wished Happy New Year.

14th April also happens to be the birth anniversary of the architect of the constitution of India, first law and justice minister and one of India’s founding fathers – Bharat Ratna Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar or Babasaheb Ambedkar as he is popularly known the world over.

He was a jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards the untouchables (Dalits), while also supporting the rights of women and labour. My tributes to him on his 128th birthday without spelling his biography here.

There is another event which takes up my day on 14th April every year. In addition to it being our New Year (what we call Vishu) it is the birthdate of a very special person. There is a departure from the usual this year in that the New Year is on the 15th but birthdates don’t change, do they?

So, 14th April is the birthdate of part-time Atulite, full-time Satulite. He is at that year of life when people hang up their boots (he is not hanging them yet) and try to find time for other pleasures and hobbies that took a back seat when they were working hard to make ends meet. This Satulite calls himself Peevesie’s Dad. He takes pleasure in the achievements of his family – his son, daughter, brothers-sisters, brothers & sisters -in-law; is a big bhakt of his parents and parents-in-law; and is generous in encouraging his wife and kids towards whatever they are good at and forever supportive.

Infact he tried his level best to teach me to ride a two-wheeler and didn’t actually give up on me, but I must say I was a bad student who took a whole decade to master riding a two-wheeler. And was rewarded with a two-wheeler to ease my work load as soon as I mastered it. 🙂

As a teenager and right upto the end of my student days I was a staunch hater of any kind of automation and computers in particular. I had a feeling that each computer would eat up the job opportunity of two or three deserving humans (people called me crazy, maybe I was). But it does seem to have replaced a lot of things in people’s lives. Now, today’s birthday boy tried to change my mindset vis-à-vis computers and persuaded me to enroll myself in one of the many match-box size training institutes that tutored commoners about Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc, in addition to teaching a crash course in Corel or PageMaker. He thought it will be a useful skill, I must admit he was not wrong. Then he initiated me into the World-Wide Web and emails, and I am 100% sure he is ruing the day I agreed to learn all that he tried to get me to learn. He finds me at the desktop most of the time these days, and zooming in and around Bangalore (never unnecessarily) on a two-wheeler. And am also sure (secretly) he must be thanking my nervousness of being behind the wheel of a four-wheeler 😉

Oh, there are so many things that I can thank him for – he has lived half his life trying to understand me and my ways and moods. We have common interests in most aspects of life, possibly a little too much of compatibility, according to our children. The song with this post is ideal to express everything that I need to tell him. And the best part about the song is that it is not a lovey-dovey young couple song but a song choreographed on a motley group of honeymoon tourists which has a middle aged couple (Shabana Azmi – Boman Irani), mismatched couple (Ameesha Patel – Karan Khanna), small- town couple (Kay Kay Menon – Raima Sen), seemingly perfect couple (Minisha Lamba – Abhay Deol); and two other couples (Sandhya Mridul – Vikram Chatwal & Dia Mirza – Ranvir Shorey) who are on honeymoon but not exactly in love. (Dia Mirza and Ranvir are not in this song but they are part of the tourists in the Honeymoon Travels bus.) It is from the 2007 Reema Kagti directed “Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.” The music for this song is by Vishal- Shekhar and Javed Akhtar is the lyricist. Sunidhi Chauhan and Shekhar Ravjiani are the playback. The movie was produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. I am in love with the choreographer of this song who has allowed the actors do their own thing which adds to the sweetness of the song.

Today’s song is a party song filmed aboard a cruise ship in Goa. I think the song is ideal for one more occasion – partying for the post number 15000 (FIFTEEN THOUSAND Phew!) of the blog. Let me try to list out all that we are celebrating in this series of celebratory posts – 10 complete years of the blog, 10 year challenge (on-going series); 1,15,40,016 hits (as I write this); 3919 days of existence (at the time of writing this) AND 11032 posts by our fearless leader (as Sudhir calls Atul ji) – we celebrated Atulji’s 10000 individual posts but missed complimenting him for tirelessly giving us 11000 posts. And the biggest point of celebration – post number 15000. In addition to celebrating the New Calendar in various parts of the country.

It has taken five years to get to 15k from 10k with numerous milestones and centuries strewn enroute.  The blog has bonded all of its regular followers, some of who are contributors in various avatars, in a bond like none other, a whole bunch of unrelated people who had never dreamt of being friends and don’t mind being called Atulites. For all this and more to come I thank ASAD the blog which is our collective addiction.

Also a very Happy Birthday to our Satulite.

Blog Day : 3915 Post No. : 14977

Today’s song is from the 1981 movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan’. And let us start from where I left in my last post with the song of the same movie here.

The movie starts with a phone ringing in a ‘central hall’ 🙂 of a ‘spacious’ bungalow, and as the phone bell is ringing, servants from all corners of the house run to pick it up. However, they are stopped by PA (Deven Verma),
‘thehro telephone ham uthhayenge. Ham bade maalik ke PA hain yane ke Personal Assistant’.

From the other side Bade Maalik (of course Jeetendra) calling at home from a Bussiness tour (I think) informs his PA about Chhote Maalik’s (double Jeetendra) birthday today and instructs him to arrange a ‘shaandaar party’ and call all ‘milnewaale’ to the party in evening. He also tells his PA that he will be reaching by the evening flight. I don’t know why his PA gets surprised and asked ‘Hawaai jahaz se?

‘kya kahaa ham nahin jaa sakte’, what do you mean? that is how Bade Maalik appears on screen, when he is informed by one of his assistants that flight tickets are not available in any of the services, so Bade Maalik tells him that
‘aaj hamaare bete ka janamdin hai, aur aaj ke din ham duniya ke kisi bhi kone mein ho, ghar zaroor pahunchte hain’,

‘I am sorry Sir, aaj ki flight mein ek bhi seat khaali nahin hai’

‘agar seat khaali nahin to ‘Charter a plane’ …

At home the PA is looking for Chhote Maalik as Bade Maalik has left by plane for home, but where is Chhote Maalik? all servants in the house report the PA that Chhote Maalik is nowhere neither in his room nor in the garden ??

And here we have Chhote Maalik Ravikant (Ravi Kapoor or Jeetendra for us 🙂 ) celebrating his birthday with singing and dancing with his girlfriend and others in a club …

While he performs and entertain us on his birthday with this song dance performance in this movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’, in real life, we also wish him a very happy birthday and peaceful and healthy life ahead.

***

Today 7th April 2019 is the seventy-seventh (born on 07.04.1942) birth anniversary of actor Jeetendra.
When I thought of presenting the song under discussion, I was doubtful whether I would be able to write with the same passion as I display for other actors like say Rajesh Khanna. But then I have written on actors other than Rajesh Khanna who are part of the ‘nostalgia’ for me
of my growing years’, when we watched movies without being fans of any specific actor/actress. There were several movies of Jeetendra that I had watched during my growing up years and I thank him for the entertainment, the beautiful memories and many lovely songs from his movies.

I remember I watched many of Jeetendra movies with my Parents and elder ones in the family like Uncles. Those were family drama movies and they were mostly from the producers of South. Here I would mention movies like ‘Farz-1967’, ‘Jeene Ki Raah-1969’, ‘Waaris-1969’, ‘Humjoli-1970’, ‘Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari-1971’, ‘Banphool-1971’ which I vaguely remember some of them. Then movies like ‘Badaltey Rishtey-1978’, ‘Swarg Narak-1978’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane-1979’, ‘The Burning Train-1980’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’.

I watched many of his movies with brothers and cousins in summer vacations and these were mainly the multi-starrer movies of the seventies. And these were movies like ‘Nagin-1976’, ‘Dharam Veer-1977’, ‘Dildaar-1977’, ‘Nalayak-1978’, ‘Aatish-1979’,’Jaani Dushman-1979’ (this I watched alone), ‘Khoon Aur Paani-1981’, ‘Samrat-1982’, ‘Udhar Ka Sindoor-1976’, ‘Kinaara-1977’, ‘Priyatama-1977’, ‘Jal Mahal-1980’, ‘Nishaana-1980’ (which I must have watched during end seventies or early eighties)

This trend continued till ‘Himmatwala’. It was round this time that ‘Souten’ and ‘Avtaar’ were released and then it was mainly Rajesh Khanna for me.

Nebertheless I remember that my grandmother, aunts and others tenants in our building wanting to watch ‘Tohfaa-1984’ had asked me to do the advance booking for this movie and so I watched this movie too.

Around the same time, I watched his ‘Farz-1967’, ‘Khilona-1970’, ‘Ek Bechaara-1972’. I watched ‘Maqsad-1984’ because of Rajesh Khanna.

After that as I grew up and was already working, I watched his ‘Geet Gaya Pathhrone-1964’, ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta-1967’. The other reason watching for ‘Geet Gaya Pathhrone’ was it was V. Shantaram’s movie. Then I watched his ‘Caravan-1971’, and all this was during 1985-1988. I also watched ‘Pataal Bhairavi-1985’ for the fantasy factor in it.

I think I had watched ‘Swarg Se Sunder-1986’, ‘Locket-1986’, ‘Souten Ki Beti-1989’,

I think I watched ‘Parichay-1972’, ‘Aasha-1980’, ‘Karmyogi-1978’ either on TV or VCR much later than above.

I must have watched some of his other movies either in theatre or on TV, like ‘Mere Hamsafar’, ‘Dharti Kahe Pukaar Ke’ etc. but don’t remember them.

Also, I must have watched some of his earlier movies or part of them on TV but I don’t remember.

I don’t remember to have watched any Jeetendra movies after that all these years except when I watched ‘Dil Aur Deewaar-1977’ last year on an online facility and on my mobile phone. This was for post with a song from this movie and since I had nostalgia about this movie’s name but had not watched it in those years.

Watching movies then was always enjoyable and it would be interesting now to watch his movies by conscious selection which I have missed, movies like ‘Mere Huzoor-1968’ (which I don’t remember to have watched) or ‘Boond Jo Ban Gaye Moti-1967’, ‘Jigri Dost-1969’ (of which couple of songs are my favorites) and of course ‘Naya Rastaa-1970’ which has songs penned by Sahir Saab.

‘Deedaar-E-Yaar-1982’ is another movie which I think I should watch. And then ‘Apnapan-1977’, ‘Maang Bharo Sajna-1980’, ‘Arpan-1983’, ‘Nishaan-1983’ (for Kaka), and ‘Mehndi Rang Laayegi-1982’ …

Many more to the wish list … and it is my mistake if I have missed to add any of his ‘must-watch’ movies in the above list, like I remember my seniors liked ‘Meri Aawaaz Suno-1981’ very much then, which I am yet to watch.

Now we come back to today’s song which is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip-synced by Jeetendra. Reena Roy is accompanying him in this performance and we can see many others in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics are by Santosh Anand and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past. Here is the list of these songs already covered in the blog:

1 Tera saath hai to Multiple version song 915 17-Mar-09
2 O meri chammak challo 970 25-Mar-09
3 Megha re megha re 6412 10-Aug-12
4 In haseen waadiyon se 14933 17-Mar-19

This is the final song from this movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ and with this ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ has all its songs covered on the blog. 🙂

This song is the 800th song of Laxmikant Pyarelal as music directors.

Once again wishing Jeetendra a very happy birthday today, let us now enjoy this song …

‘Bobby’ – a once in a life time sojourn. Smitten by this film, youngsters in any age will not be awed by any other drama of romance.

‘Bobby’ – the heart beat of a generation. Murmurs of that heartbeat continue to be alive decades after. Memories of that first love still makes the blood race through the veins, just as if that primal experience is still happening – for the first time.

‘Bobby’ – never before, and never after – was a story of adolescent love, ever presented with such an alluring composure, and such a charismatic style.

‘Bobby’ – open that page even today, and the freshness of fragrance of that first touch, that first embrace, that first kiss – under a row of Gulmohar trees in full bloom, still has the thump to pummel you off your feet. The ‘flame of the forest’ is ablaze with a riot of red. And so are the raging emotions within – not just the star crossed lovers on screen – it is me too, still floundering and floating in those seminal sensations of love – the moment frozen in time and age, forever. Check out the lover’s tryst at the swimming pool. Every other experience of passionate emotions pales into insignificance in the face of this compelling, electric attraction.

‘Bobby’ – the enduring Perfect Storm – nothing else comes close to capturing that first pubescent surge of hormones – the heart’s first introduction to the fascinating enthrallment of passion and love.

‘Bobby’ – the first steps into the adventures of delight, when the self desires to make space for another for the first time, savoring the first unfamiliar ecstasies of love.

‘Bobby’ – a film, a name, and a girl in a white frock with grey dots and a red piping – standing next to the entrance, near the golden statue of a maiden carrying a pot of water, quenching the thirst of many kinds; and the strains of music that play on that first sighting – “Jeena Yahaan Marna Yahaan, Is Ke Siwa Jaana Kahaan”. As always, the master of melodramatic presentation, RK chose this oh so appropriate music to play when this simple young girl made her first presence on the screen, and into the hearts of million young men – yes – Is Ke Siwa Jaana Kahaan. . .

I have written before about my many crushes on many a beauty of the silver screen. But this was / is the first time I really fell in love. Never heard of this girl before. Dimple Kapadia – no background in films, no links in the industry – and one day, she is just there, standing near the entrance, next to that golden statue. It was just a moment – and she took my heart away. That was just yesterday, but it seems as if an age has passed, and an entire life story of love has been played out. And yet, frozen in time, it still is 1973, and Bobby and me – forever.

As far as I can remember, no other film, no other director had, till that time, tried to tackle the subject of adolescent romance. Yes, there have been many films about childhood friendships that blossom out into love and romance when the protagonists are adults. College going students – yes, many films that have dealt with college romance. The one drawback of these tales was – the lead pair never did look like college students. Senior actors in their thirties, forties and even fifties, attempting to play romantic leads on a college campus. All is well till the movie plays, but once done, the memories remain of the oversize actors trying to fit into very young shoes.

Bobby was different. Bobby was homegrown fresh, young, as young can be. Dimple – all of sixteen years when she stepped into this role. Rishi, albeit not so young, was 21. But with his cupcake Johnson baby looks, he charmed his way into the hearts of a million girls. Take away all the aesthetics, and the story is as old as the ruins of Ranjeet Studios – boy from rich family meets girl from family not of the same social status, they fall in love, and the entire world around them crumbles down upon them. Coming all the way from days of Parsi theatre and silent cinema, this tale has been played over and over again, umpteen times.

And then, after seven decades or so, this tale once again exploded on to the screens, and ignited a whole generation of teenagers – a fire that has not been doused since then. It was not the melodrama that worked; it was, somewhat maybe, the music that worked; it was not the apparently artificial ambience of the Nath affluence – the rich side of the tussle; it was not the exaggerated and affected brash and boisterous Braganza who wears the same undersized suit to every formal scene in the film, (gosh, even the not so affluent have a proper dress sense), and the supporting roles – mother, nanny, friends, society girls, mild brained proposal for making a business alliance – in short, there was nothing in the film that was not done before, even by RK himself, nothing that was new for the cinema screen and for the audiences. What turned out to the winner was the lead pair – two unknown faces whose on screen chemistry tugged at the strings of the heart of the audience, and turned the rest of the oft repeated paraphernalia around them into a very convincing, charming, fascinating tale.

And between the two of them, Bobby comes up trumps to the histrionics of Raja. The film is Bobby, and Bobby all the way. Making innocence and glamour look oh so easy, the images in the mind are forever now – the coy and shy little girl in a frock, who is afraid to step into the lavish party, keeps standing at the entrance; the naïve and innocent little girl, telling about the ‘dhuk-dhuki’ in her heart when she see him; the troubled and broken lady, her heart asunder albeit from a misunderstood conversation, as she too looking on with pleading eyes, but unable to take a step towards him; the screaming pleading young woman, beseeching her grandmother not to lock her up, as Josef physically pulls her away and carries her upstairs at the behest of an agonized but very firm Mrs. Braganza. . . and many more. The images keep playing in the mind. And the film is all about this teen aged girl who is so intensely convinced about her love – you can see it in her face as she pleads with her grandmother – that she will die if separated from Raja; and sitting in the audience seats, one is so starkly convinced that she will, that there are tears streaming and the body muscles want to jump on to the screen and beat the hell out of Josef.

Oh Bobby, Bobby, Bobby – she pulled up a storm, and then – she just walked away. In a manner of speaking, it is good that she did. The legend and the aura of Bobby remained constant, unremitting . . . verily to become perpetual. The Dimple that we see from a decade later is a very different avatar. The memories, the marvel, the legend of Bobby, has remained intact. Nobody could quite portray the coy innocence and purity of heart, as we see Bobby on the screen and in the dreams. And that is very well for me – it is 1973, and Bobby, forever.

I am both sad and glad to get the opportunity for announcing the Yippeee-dom status for this film. After a 10 years travel, finally all the songs of this film are now present on the blog. 🙂  And sad, because we won’t be discussing this Bobby again in any future post. 😦

Eight songs, eight wonderful songs keeping alive the RK tradition for the best in music. The songs created quite a ripple when released, and over the decades, have remained popular with every new generation of teenagers, who simply love the ideas of simple thoughts as in “Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai” and “Hum Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Hon”. 🙂 The seven songs posted earlier happened in the following sequence.

 

1 Main Shaayar To Nahin 869 10-Mar-09
2 Ankhiyon Ko Rahne De 998 30-Mar-09
3 Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai 5708 30-Mar-12
4 Jhoothh Bole Kauwwaa Kaate Kaale Kawwe Se Dariyo 13319 8-Jun-17
5 Ham Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Hon Aur Chaabhi Kho Jaaye 14732 3-Nov-18
6 Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo, Bulle Shaa Ye Kehta 14918 10-Mar-19
7 Na Chaahoon Sona Chaandi 14940 20-Mar-19

 

A journey that started 10 years ago, culminates today, with the posting of this fabulous and scintillating party song that carries many layers of silent conversations within itself. We are more than two third of the way into the movie. Nath and Braganza have fallen out big time, with the belligerent Braganza promising all sorts of consequences if Nath’s son is seen anywhere close to his daughter. Bobby is sent off to Goa – a la “Akhiyon Ko Rahne De Akhiyon Ke Aas Paas“. Raja is confined and under watch. New Year eve is nigh. The business driven Nath makes a business driven decision to announce the engagement of his son with the daughter of Mr. Sharma, one of his business associates. No matter that the lady chosen is somewhat retarded, and much below her actual age in mental capacity. Not being able to rebel and speak his mind, unable to confront his father, Raja is in a deadly dilemma about his life.

The party happens. The song happens. And Raja gets the answer for his life. As I said, the song has multiple layers of silent conversations happening. The party and the celebration is one. The parents are agog with delight of having struck two birds with one stone – made a major business gain, and tied down a wayward son into household chains. The joy of Nikki (Farida Jalal) is on a different high – she is getting married into another rich family. Then the song and the performance itself – that speaks of the travesty of love and lovers. Woe becomes he who is wretched enough to be entangled in a snare of love.

And there is the mind of Raja – bewildered, afraid, not believing what is going on around him. His insides are in a shamble, his heart is in agony, and all his parents can think of is an alliance for him, and a grand new year party. A look at him, his lost expressions in the midst of so much dance and revelry. And one is reminded of another RK song –

dhakke pe dhakka, reley pe relaa
hai bheed itni, par dil akela
par dil akela

And the scenario takes you back across two decades of musical and cinematic articulation – the troubled expressions of the face of Raja feeling hopelessly lost amidst the ongoing celebration, threading back to the joker singing at the Bombay carnival (‘Mera Naam Joker’, 1970), leading you back one more layer, to the bumbling hobo, new to the big town, and completely lost in its hustle bustle (‘Shri 420’, 1955). When I see that image, that look on Rishi Kapoor’s face during this party song, my mind goes back these two steps to more of RK’s wonder illustrations.

And then, we have this covert conversation happening between the dancer and the teenager with a troubled mind. The dancer is singing for him, without him realizing it so, at the beginning. In the first stanza, the dancer explains to Raja, the vagaries of love one has to endure. Falling in love does not mean just losing your heart to someone – actually one loses everything in life, one’s entire world and even one’s happiness. Then the dancer goes on to explain the time of adolescence – and this one line in this song is so intensely killing –

ye ek saal
bachpan aur jawaani ke beech ka
bada bura hota hai

And in this one liner, the lyricist has said everything that one needs to be said for the agonies of coming of age. This time of transition and hormonal changes bring in awarenesses that didn’t exist in the mind before. And these awarenesses are confusing, troubling and at times frightening. The call of the dancer’s voice now catches Raja’s attention – who realizes that this song is being sung for him. And in the second stanza, the dancer now reveals an answer. The seed is planted, the way is shown, and the contemplation of an elopement is initiated –

bacha ke aa..aankh
panchhi pinjra le ke ud jaaye to. . .

Lovely choreography here. For a moment, Raja is encircled by other dancers with frightening masks, as if he is caged inside a prison of fear, and the next instant, the dancer is floating away like a bird flying. And the words for the second stanza commence. Just pause and watch again this small magical interlude segment.

The third stanza of this song appears separately and a little later in the film (and is inserted as Part II in the lyrics below). Raja has run away from home, reached the place in Goa where Bobby is confined with her grandmother. He pleads to be allowed to meet, and to be permitted to be married. Grandma locks him up also, and sends message to Bombay. In the night, Raja manages to escape, gets in to Bobby’s room, and now they both flee on the mobike. The third stanza plays now. The burden of this stanza says that this incurable malady of love is under no one’s control, no matter how formidable a learned person (jogi – one who can control the senses and the mind) or how skilled a snake charmer might one be. A snake charmer is supposed to have power to control any snake. The lyrics say that the serpents of love are not even in their control.

The words in the song, the choreography, the covert exchanges happening between the dancer and the teenager – oh so well designed and executed. There is another layer of conversation that gets revealed. Just watch the expressions and try to visualize the mind of the young man as the song progresses. He is troubled, he is lost, he is incensed by the apparent sarcasm that the dancer is singing. And then he catches on. The message of being trapped “Ae. . .  Phansaa” transforms from his original thoughts that he played the game of hearts and lost and got trapped in this pining pain of love. But when Nikki joins the party, and the dancer points out yet once again “Ae. . .  Phansaa” he realizes – not earlier as he was thinking, but the entrapment is happening now, with the new proposed alliance for him. One begins to see a glimmer of understanding dawn in his eyes and his expressions. He is now listening more carefully. And when the second stanza is in progress, one can clearly make out that now he is fully in sync with the dancer, and her words, and the covert messages that she is communicating. And when the words for flying away with the pinjra are aired, the young man is all attention, slowly one feels the mind moving towards a new resolve, a new plan. At the end of this stanza, there is a very brief, but very meaningful pause, a wink, and a twist smile – almost as if saying – ‘Go’. In the film, the next thing we see is the mother, with letter in her hand, announcing with a scream that her son has run away – and the party has not yet ended. And the next thing we see is the young man and the vroooom of the Rajdoot GTS bike.

And I would like to talk about the dancer now, saving that for the last. In my mind, probably the best dance performance by Aruna Irani, across her career. The music is very fast paced, the movements are very energetic, and true to the RK traditions, the woman in her is so vividly and so sensitively, and sensuously presented. It is such a treat to watch this performance. I have lost the count of times that I have replayed this video in the past couple of days as I work to complete this write up. A superlative performance indeed, by her. Her expressions exhibit how much she is enjoying this herself. And very clearly, she is giving everything to this song. The sequences of steps, the movements – wonderfully choreographed and so expressively delivered by her.

The film credits do not include the name of the dance director, but after some digging, I am able to locate the name. The dance director in this film is Sohanlal, of Madras (now Chennai). It is tons of years ago, but I remember having met him in Madras. There was a brief period of time when I was in Madras on a job assignment. And one of my aunts, who stayed in Madras – her family was a tenant in the bungalow of Sohanlal, somewhere in Adyar area. I used to visit my aunt’s family almost on a weekly basis. And on a couple of occasions I even sat in the studio where Sohanlal ji was instructing students for practice.

Back to Aruna Irani. She has a brief but a significant role in the film. The misunderstanding that is caused between the young lovers, inadvertently, she is in the middle of it. In all her scenes, she looks so extremely charming and ravishing. And always on the dot with her presence and dialogue delivery.  A short and a very sweet performance. Of course with this dance as her best one that I can remember.

And so, the last of Bobby songs is now posted. We announce the addition of this film to the list of Yippeee’d films on our blog. Maybe, I won’t be writing any more about this film. But that is not to say that I do not have more to say about the film, and about Bobby – my first love. That is going to remain with me forever. Yes, it is 1973. . . forever.

The film is a benchmark for stories of young romance, that have been told, and as well for the stories that still have to be told. But the legend of ‘Bobby’ will endure.

The songs that have given idioms that have crept into the language of this subcontinent, be it “. . . pyaar mein sauda nahin”, or “. . . par pyaar bhara dil kabhi na todo, is dil mein dilbar rehta”, or even the simple expression that says “. . . mujhe kuchh kehna hai”. And yes, the ice breaker as one attempts to attract the attention of a lady – “main shaayar to nahin. . .”.

And thus I close this post with the reiteration – an expression for all who are always young in the heart. . .

“If you ever have been in love, this film is for you. . .”

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today 4th January is the twenty fifth ‘Remembrance Day’ (27th June’1939- 04th January’1994) of the ‘versatile genius’ RD Burman or our beloved Pancham Da. One cannot believe that it is twenty five years now since Pancham Da left us. His songs are a daily routine for me and maybe many like me, and so it never appears that he is not there. He is always there with us – the music lovers.

I wish to send an article with other song composed by Pancham for this occasion, however could not finish that article hence I for today’s occasion I am sharing herewith one of my already pending article under the series ‘Pancham-Rafi Jodi’s variety songs. We already have the following songs earlier in this series posted on the blog;

Jaag devta naag devta

Raqqaasa mare naam

Maine kab chaaha ke doolha banoonga

So coming back after a long gap in this series, today we have song composed by RD Burman from the movie ‘Takkar’ (1980). Today’s song of ‘Pancham – Rafi Jodi Songs’ is a melodious devotional song.

‘Takkar’ is a Padmalaya Films Production. produced by GA Sheshagiri Rao and directed by K Bapaiyaa. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Zeenat Aman, Jeetendra, Jayaprada, Vinod Mehra (double role), Bindiya Goswami, Ranjeet, Mac Mohan, Ashok Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Sujit Kumar, Jeevan, Mukri, Asrani, Shivaraj, Leela Chitnis, Komila Virk, Jalal Agha, Mohan Choti, Master Bittoo, A. Abdul Hameed, Mac Mohan, Umesh Sharma, Swaraj Gupta, Anand Mohan, Umesh Khanna, K N Reddy, Pawan Babu, Asha Sachdev, Prema Narayan etc. in it.

As per HFGK this movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.04.1980. It had total seven songs in it wherein Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs in this movie. Lyrics for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and Music was composed by R.D. Burman.

I do not remember to have heard this song till this post. Also from the list of other songs of this movie they don’t seem familiar to me. Though I am aware that there was this movie in those days, but have not watched it then and even till date. This is the second song from this film to appear on the blog.

Here is the brief about this film that Atul ji mentioned while posting the first song from this film (on 09.09.2013) – Moorty Ganesh Ki Andar Daulat Desh Ki.

In today’s song Sanjeev Kumar and Zeenat Aman are lip syncing in Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle’s voice respectively on the screen. Ashok Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Jeevan, Bindiya Goswami and others are seen in the song.

From the video of the song one can assume that Zeenat Aman looks for her ‘Shyam’ in Sanjeev Kumar and Ashok Kumar seems to find the spiritual one, few seem to be interested in Kanhaiyya’s moorty itself and Sanjeev Kumar preparing to take on the evils or he too wants to get this ‘moorty’. Only those who have watched this movie can help us.

But the song is a nice hummable one. As mentioned above lyrics of this song are by Anand Bakshi and it is composed by RD Burman.

Let us now enjoy this interesting song.

Song – Maakhan Chor Nandkishore Manmohan Ghanshyam Re (Takkar) (1980) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – RD Burman
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhonsle
