For today’s presentation we have a song from the movie ‘Aar Paar-1985’. This movie will make its debut on the blog today. This was one of the reasons to select a song from this movie. The other reason being that the song is sung by R.D. Burman himself. Another reason is that this song is a lesser-heard song as well. But if one listens to this song a few times it grows upon you. It is a very nice hummable philosophical song.

Today (4 january 2022) happens to be the twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Day’ (27 June 1939 – 4 January 1994) of our beloved Pancham Da. It has been twenty-eight years since he left us forever. But the music that he created will remain with us forever as long as HFM is around.

This is the fifth song in this series. I had kept this song up my sleeve for this day after drafting it more than one month back.

The song being posted today is our tribute to ‘Pancham Da’ and his ‘music’ in HFM.

The song is from the movie ‘Aar-Paar’(1985). ‘Aar-Paar'(1985) was directed by Shakti Samanta for his home productions ‘Shakti Films, Bombay’. Shakti Samanta was also the producer of this movie. It was an Indo-Bangladesh Co-Production. And Syed Hasan Imam (of Chitrangan-Dhaka) was the Co-Producer of this movie from Bangladesh.

‘Aar-Paar'(1985) had Mithun Chakravarty, Rosina, Nutan, Asit Sen, Utpal Dutt, Manik Dutt, Tarun Ghose, Ghulam Mustafa, Hasan Imam, A.T.M. Shamsuz Zaman, Ahmed Sharif, Ghulam Rafique, Madhu, Shekhar, Amal Bose, Kali Pada Sen, Bullet, Qutub, Mohammad Ali, Chunnu, Minhaz, Barua, Nurul Islam, Sumita Devi, Shahre Banu, Maya Ghose, Reena, Papiya and others.

Story of this movie was written by Shakti Pada Rajguru. Screenplay of this movie was jointly written by Shakti Samanta and Shanu Bannerjee.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Pradeep Roy Chowdhury. Bijoy Chowdhury was the editor of this movie.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman. kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Sabeena, Yasmin and R.D. Burman had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.11.1985.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is played in the background while we can see some policemen taking Mithun Chakravarty with them while some villagers (including friends of Mithun Chakravarty in the movie) are seen watching them.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by R.D. Burman. lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. Music is composed by R.D. Burman.

(This post also serves of bringing movies with same title on the blog. With this song Aar-Paar(1985) joins the well-known movie ‘Aar Paar-(1954) in the blog.

Songs from Artiste Name Films….Second Season….No. 3
———————————————————————

What is Beauty ?

Everybody’s definition of Beauty is different. It all depends upon individual likings. Some like good eyes, some like long hair, some like a round and attractive face….long nose…good smile… etc etc. Because of this, Shakespeare ended this debate by saying ” Beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes”. In other words, to each his own. However, there are many who go by the majority.

There have always been debates in the film industry as to who is the most beautiful actress and as expected there was no common answer. In the early times of cinema neither the audience nor the filmmakers ever bothered about the beauty of the actresses. In the 30’s, the stress was on film producing company names and the story of the film. It was in the 1940s that the point of beauty of the film heroine took prominence. When one sees the magazine and newspaper advertisements of that time, one notices this point.

During the 40’s decade two actresses were declared beautiful. One was Naseem Bano- who was called ‘ Pari Chehra” (face of the Fairy), and the other was Ragini- who was called “Aahoo Chashm” (Magical Eyes). Ragini’s eyes were Brown, which is a rarity. in all those years, there have been only three actresses, who had brown eyes. One was Vanmala, the second was Kamla Kotnis and the third was Ragini. However, it was only Ragini, who was given extraordinary publicity through newspapers, Hoardings and magazine articles, of being the ” Aahoo Chashm ” !

Ragini was born Shamshad Begum, on 11-12- 1923, at Gujranwala, in a bazaar, where, to quote that great sage, Agha Hashr, “Days are dormant and nights wide awake.” Her mother named her Shamshad Begum, and her father, Seth Diwan Parmanand, happily allowed a Muslim name. But, her mother died during her childhood, and Diwan took this young girl from Gujranwala to Lahore.

Even this early, Ragini had the looks that made her noticeable. In those days, the classical sense of beauty was quite different. Large, sparkling eyes and a fair complexion was enough for any girl in the films to be termed beautiful. Aahoo Chashm Ragni and Pari Chehra Naseem (Saira Bano’s mother) were both considered the epitome of beauty, although young people question those attributes today as “just average”. Ragini had Brown eyes. In Indian cinema there were only 3 Heroines who had such Brown eyes. Ragini was one, Kamla Kotnis was second and the third was Vanmala.

Ragini was not able to go to school for undisclosed reasons, although she had a happy childhood. Diwan Sahab’s good friend, Roop K. Shorey was a well known film maker, and one day, while visiting his house, he noticed the girl child. “Isn’t she cute?” he said. “She has the looks of a fine film actress.” Although Diwanjee had some reservations about allowing the girl to join the industry, Shorey pledged that he would look after her at every step of the shootings. In those days, there were very few girls in the industry. To find a seventeen year old girl as the heroine meant that you had hit the jackpot.

Shorey cast Shamshad as Ragini, in Kamla Movietones’ Punjabi film, Dulla Bhatti in 1940. M.D. Kunwar was the hero, while Ragini played Nooran in the film. It was a hit and people were spellbound by her charm. Her next film, Sehti Murad did not make such a bang. She also did ‘himmat’ and ‘Raavipaar’. Later, she worked in many films before Partition, including her first Hindi film,Nishani-42,,naila,Anarkali,Poonji, Kaise Kahoon, Dasi, Shirin Farhad,farz and others. In Kardar’s film, Shahjahan, Ragini played Mumtaz Mahal, while her first hero, M. D. Kunwar, who had done Dulla Bhatt’s role, characterized Shahjahan with great aplomb. Kunwar was so enamoured of Ragini that he had requested Kardar for the role, to be close to Ragini. Unfortunately, Ragini did not respond to his romantic advances, and Kunwar sank himself in perpetual drunkenness, which led to his getting infected by tuberculosis and his death soon after that.

After Kardar’s Shahjhan, Ragini did a few more films before Partition, namely Nek Parveen, Farz, etc. Amongst these, director Niranjan’s film, Farz was Sudhir’s first film too, and Ragini played the lead with him. Ragini acted in 14 Hindi films, before her migration. Ragini got married to mian Mohd. Aslam in 1945 and took a break to raise a family. After Partition,she migrated to Pakistan and was welcomed with open arms in Pakistan. She worked as the heroine in films like Mundri, Akeli, Nazrana, Beqarar, Shararey, Mumtaz and Zanjeerin Pakistan. Radio Pakistan , during its creative days, used to play the hit songs of Beqarar, Naukar and Bedari in the 1960s. The song from producer S. Gul and director NazeerAjmeri’s 1950 film, Beqararis, still played on the radio. Dil ko laga ke kaheen thokar na khana. It was sung by Ali Bux Zahoor and Munawwar Sultana, and remains one of the earliest hit duets of Pakistani films.

Ragini was an expressive character actress, who did a variety of roles in films like Husn o Ishq, Anarkali, and Aab e Hayat She made a perfect Mumtaz Mahal in Naseem usSaqlain’s Taj Mahal, although she wore a half veil in some of the scenes. It was a remarkable spectacle, but flopped because the local audience could not understand its historical significance. A huge expense to uplift it, with superb costumes, apart from the details taken care of during the royal procession shown in the film, are its high points. Ragini was able to use her arching eyebrows and expressive eyes brilliantly in Taj Mahal. Much has been written about her intimacy with famous producer, S. Gul, but he always maintained and proved by his actions that he had sympathy and reverence for her and shared her grief and heart felt fondness for the good times she had spent in the undivided India.

Ragini was invited to India to do two films,Chamkee-52 and Insaan-52. She completed these and went back to Pakistan. Later she divorced her first husband and married producer Gul. Her last days in Pakistan were very sad. She was thrown out of her house by her Son in Law,as he did not want an actress in his house. She spent her last days in a small room in Lahore and died unsung on 27-2-2007 at the age of 85 years. (information collated from various sources like pak.mag, cinerang by Isaq Mujawar, muVyz, HFGK,Flashback, Chanderi Smriti Chitre by Samant, upperstall with thanks and my notes)

Today’s song is from the film Ragini-1945. Actress Ragini was not in the film. The film cast consisted of Smriti Biswas, Najam ul Hasan, Pran, Aruna Devi, Gyani ji, Roofi and many others. The film was made by Maheshwari Pictures, Lahore and was directed by Shankar Mehta. He directed only 4 films in his career-Pagli -43, Ragini-45, Aai Bahar-46 and Rokshawala–60 ( for which he was also one of the producers). The music was by Pt. Amarnath – the eldest brother of Pt. Husnlal and Pt. Bhagatram.

The Hero of the film Ragini (RAGNI, as per the HFGK)-45 was Najam, who was (in)famous for eloping with Devika Rani of Bombay Talkies. Najmul Hasan was born on 5-9-1910, into a noble family of Lucknow. He was tall and very handsome and was bitten by the urge to act in the films. He left his Law studies and headed for Bombay. He met Sarojini Naidu, who was a family friend. She strongly recommended his name to Himanshu Rai. His Screen test was taken in which he passed. Though at first sight, Himanshu Rai was not impressed with his manner of behaviour, he still selected him for the First film of Bombay Talkies, opposite Devika Rani in Jawani ki Hawa-1935.

During Jawani ki Hawa-35- which was loosely based on Agatha Christie’s “Murder On The Orient Express”, published in 1934 only- Devika Rani fell in love with Najmul Hasan and they decided to elope. Their second film- Jeewan Naiyya-36 went on floor and the love birds flew to Calcutta. There was a great commotion in Bombay Talkies. Shashdhar Mukherji the production manager was close to his Bengali Boss Himanshu Roy. Mukherjee traced the couple to Calcutta, met Devika Rani and convinced her to return to Himanshu. Devika Rani returned, Himanshu Roy pardoned her, but not Najmul Hasan.

Najmul Hasan did not come back to Bombay. He joined the New Theatres in Calcutta and did films like Anath Ashram-37,Dushman-38,Kapal kundala-39,Jawani ki Reet-39, and Nartaki-40. Even in Calcutta, Najmul Hassan had a rocking affair with superstar Jahan Ara Kajjan. After doing the film Meenakshi-42, Najmul Hasan did some films like Daasi-44 , Ragini-45 and kaise Kahoon-45 in Lahore and then he decided to migrate to Pakistan in 1947. In Pakistan he did some films like Eid-1951, Ashiyana, Doctor, Mirza Jatt, Taxi Driver and Heer Ranjha etc.

Najmul Hasan, a very bitter man for the treatment he received in Pakistan, died in 1980 in Pakistan. (Based on information from सुंदर ती दुसरी दुनिया by Ambarish Mishra,pak.mag, The magical world of Bombay Talkies by Lalit Joshi with thanks and my notes)

Today’s song is sung by Zeenat Begum, who was not only a find of Pt. Amarnath, but also his main singer for many of his films.


Song- Ik hook si uthhti hai dil mein baar baar kyun(Raagini)(1945) Singer- Zeenat Begum, Lyricist- not known, MD- Pt. Amarnath

Song-Daata sun le maula sun le (Jail)(2009) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Ajay Kumar Garg, MD-Shamir Tandon

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
raahon se meri kaante chun le
dar pe khade hain sar ko jhukaaye
itni si araj hamaari ee
daata sun le, maula sun le
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le

raat to kaali hai
din bhi andhera hai
raat to kaali hai
din bhi andhera hai
apni palkon ki
tu chhaanv mein rakhna
jeevan ki dori ko tu thhaamke rakhna
haathon mein tere hi
hai duniya hamaari ee
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le

galtiyaan jo hamne ki
wo maaf kar dena
mann mein sachchaayi ka aa
vishwaas bhar dena
raatein gujarti hain
aankhon hi aankhon mein
kuchh phool dhoondhte hain
kaanton se bhari shaakhon mein
saanson ki dharti pe hamri paap ka parbat bhaari ee
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
maula aaa sun le
daata aaa sun le ae
maula aaaa sun le ae ae

Lyrics

tere gham ko chhupaana hai zamaane ki nigaahon se ae
hansi ka kaam lena hai sulagte ae ae ae
dil ki aahon se
mere dil pe chhaayi hain haaye gham ki ghataayen
mere dil pe chhaayi hain haaye gham ki ghataayen
sitaaron se keh do na wo muskuraayen
mere dil pe chhaayi hain haaye gham ki ghataayen

jabaan par tera naam aane na doongi
mohabbat pe ilzaam aane na doongi
bhula doongi main teri saari jafaayen
mere dil pe chhaayi hain haaye gham ki ghataayen

mere dil ko barbaad kar dene waale
kaleje ko zakhmon se bhar dene waale
tujhe phir bhi dil de raha hai duaayen
mere dil pe chhaayi hain haaye gham ki ghataayen
sitaaron se keh do na wo muskuraayen
mere dil pe chhaayi hain haaye gham ki ghataayen

His elder son Amarnath is a TB patient. Inspite of the opposition of Kundanlal, Lali is ready to marry Nandlal. At the time of marriage, Rajaram brings Amarnath-TB patient as the bridegroom and Lali gets married unknowingly to Amarnath. When they return to Lucknow, Amar dies and Lali becomes widow. Rajaram puts the entire blame on Lali and starts torturing her like a mother-in-law. Despite all this Lali decides to stay there and look after that family. Slowly,Rajaram changes his mind about Lali, looking at her dutifulness and devotion to family.

Lyrics

hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
ik khushi maangi jo hamne saikado gham paaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

dil ki har ik aarzoo dil mein hi ghut ke reh gayi
dil ki har ik aarzoo dil mein hi ghut ke reh gayi
har tamanna har khushi ik ashq banke beh gai
kya thhikaana unka jo kismat ke hi thhukraaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

zindagi ke dene waale ye bhi kya hai zindagi
zindagi ke dene waale ye bhi kya hai zindagi
jee rahe hain is tarah jaise saza hai zindagi
kuchh na poochho is jahaan ne kaise din dikhlaaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Shatrujit Paul. Its dialogues were written by Rahi Masoom Raza. Editing for this movie was done by Shivaji Avdhoot.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.02.1974.

‘Mehmaan-1974’ had total six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Ravi. Asha Bhonsle, Deedar Singh Pardesi, Mahendra Kapoor, Meenu Puroshottam and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie made its debut on the blog in 2010 with its first song posted on 01.05.2010. After that its second was posted on 26.04.2012.
But the third song was posted after more than five years gap on 25.10.2017.
Its fourth song got posted in ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 01.05.2020 as the movie completes its ten year long run on the blog.

Then the sixth song was posted this year on Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary. This year is the ‘birth centenary celebration year’ of lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi (born on 08.03.1921 – 25.10.1980). On the blog we achieved seven centuries of Sahir Ludhianvi on 08.03.2021.
He is on 700 on the blog since then. The today’s song will be 701st song of Sahir Ludhianvi on the blog.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Mehmaan-1974’ as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chhod arre jaa mujhe na pakad Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle 01.05.2020
02 Khuley gagan ke neeche panchhi Minoo Purushottam
03 Uff ye jawaani ye adaa Mohd Rafi 01.05.2010

06 Meri chaahat rahegi hamesha jawaan Mohd Rafi 26.04.2012

Today’s song is sung by Minoo Purushottam and on screen, I guess, it is Lata Sinha lip syncing the song. (I have not watched this movie, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.).

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Sahir Ludhianvi and music is composed by Ravi.

This is the final song from ‘Mehmaan-1974’ and with this song all songs of ‘Mehmaan-1974’ gets covered on the blog and the movie moves to ‘Yippeeee’ club now. 😊
