Rafi Sb.

So much written about him. So much said. The words have ended. But the emotions continue to flow. So much more remains unsaid. So much more still waits. But the articulation struggles to create new epithets, define new qualifiers that may go beyond, and say a little more about this Divine Voice, about this persona so aptly described as God’s Own.

And yet, some more, little more. As it is, there are still many more songs in his voice that have to be brought on board here on our blog. I bring today a short ghazal of three couplets, that is indeed an abbreviated version. The poet who wrote these lines is Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal emperor. As a character in history – the last Emperor of the glorious Mughal dynasty, he appears in some films. One of them is ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954).

There is a scene of the Royal Darbaar – Deewaan e Aam, in which a mushaira is being held. The Emperor himself is presiding. And being an accomplished and an acknowledged poet himself, he is also one of the presenters. Rather he is the premier presenter – his kalaam is read as the first presentation in the mushaira. The actor reading the kalaam is Sadiq. [Author’s Note: This info is provided by Ahsaan Qasim.]

Only three she’ers (couplets) of one of Bahadur Shah Zafar’s original ghazal are presented. And the voice behind this poetry is that of Rafi Sb. The video clip of this mushaira is available on YouTube. I am presenting the extracted audio of the portion that is sung by Rafi Sb. This is a short one and a half minute presentation that is neither listed in Geet Kosh and is not available on any released gramophone records of this film.

In the film ‘Mirza Ghalib’, all the listed songs except one are rendered by Talat Mehmood. The one exception is in the voice of Rafi Sb – the ghazalHai Bas Ke Har Ek Unke Ishaare Mein Nishaan Aur”.  This partial ghazal now adds one more song in this film which is rendered by Rafi Sb.

Today morning, a dear friend Amol Saraf sent me a piece of his own writing that he has written for Rafi Sb. Amol ji is US based, and a lover of Hindi film music. And yes, that is the reason that we have connected, being part of an online group that meets once a week. After we got introduced on this forum, we have had long telephone conversations, about ourselves and our intense interest in Hindi film songs.

With his indulgence, I share this piece here. All the words that he has composed for Rafi Sb, leave almost nothing more to be said at present. A wonderful eulogy that appropriately honors the great soul.

मरहूम मुहम्मद रफी साहब

ना हुआ ऐसा कभी पहले
ना आगे कभी ऐसा होगा
चाहे कुछ भी हो सकता हैं
मुहम्मद रफी फिर नही होगा

भजन में भाव तुम ही हो
प्रभु मिलन की चाव तुम ही हो

हर अजान में भी बसे तुम हो
मेरी जान में रिसे हो तुम
शबद गान में अरदास तुम हो
ईसा के भाव गान में हो तुम
रात लोरी में दुलार तुम हो
सुबह के सूरज में हो तुम
माहताब की ठंडक में तुम ही हो
तारों की झिलमिल में हो तुम
खुशबू सभी फ़ुलों में तुम हो
सावन के झुलों में हो तुम
पुरवाई की मिठी छुँअन मे तुम हो
एव्हरेस्ट की ऊँचाई पर हो स्थित
वादीयों में गुँजती आवाज हो तुम
दिलं में मुहब्बत का झरना तुम हो
बादल बारीश नदी समंदर हो तुम
प्यार का मधुर साज हो तुम
गरीबों के ज़िंदगी की आस तुम हो
अमीरों के महलों की शान हो तुम
वादि-ए-हुस्न का खुमार तुम हो
हमारी ज़िंदगी का धनुक हो तुम
शान-ए-मौसिकी तुम से ही
ईज्जत-ए-कलाम तुम हो
शान-ए-वतन तुम हो ऐ रफी
ज़ीनत-ए-चमन आबाद है तुम से
शांति और अमन का परचम तुम ही हो
इन्सानियत की आन बान शान हो तुम
दूर रह कर भी साथ हर घड़ी हो तुम
रगों में बहता देश प्रेम तुम हो
हमारी ज़िंदगी में ज़िंदादिली हो तुम
ये दिल एक मंदिर हैं तुम्हारा
सारी दुनिया कहती हैं
मुहम्मद रफी हैं हमारा..  मुहम्मद रफी हैं हमारा
मुहम्मद रफी हैं हमारा..  मुहम्मद रफी हैं हमारा

अमोल बिदेसियाँ

हरदिल अज़ीज़ मरहूम मुहम्मद रफी साहब जी को
सादर सप्रेम अर्पण।

आज उनकी ४० वी बरसी पर उनकी रुहानी याद को…
दिल कि गहराईयों से सलाम आदाब करता हुँ।

और परवरदिगार से ईल्तेजा, ग़ुज़ारीश करता हुँ कि..
उनकी रुह को नेमत अताह करें।

आमीन

अमोल बिदेसियाँ

After reading the above lines, nothing more really remains to be said. The accolades continue to echo. The memories endure, the music sustains, the voice – Divine Voice, persists and prevails over all creation.

Mohmmed Rafi Sb – God’s Own.

Song – Nahin Ishq Mein Is Ka To Ranj Hamen  (Mirza Ghalib) (1954) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Bahadur Shah Zafar, MD – Ghulam Mohammed

Lyrics

nahin ishq mein is ka to ranj hamen
ke qaraar o shaqeb zara na raha
gham e ishq to apna rafeeq raha
koi aur balaa se raha naa raha

na thi haal ki jab hamen apni khabar
rahe dekhte auron ke aib o hunar
padi apni buraaion pe jo nazar
to nigaah mein koi bura na raha

zafar aadmi usko na jaaniyega
ho wo kaisa hi saahib e fehm o zaqaa
jise aish mein yaad e khuda na rahi
jise taish mein khauf e khuda na raha

नहीं इश्क़ में इसका तो रंज हमें
के करार ओ शक़ेब ज़रा ना रहा
ग़म ए इश्क़ तो अपना रफ़ीक़ रहा
कोई और बला से रहा ना रहा

ना थी हाल की जब हमें अपनी खबर
रहे देखते औरों के ऐब ओ हुनर
पड़ी अपनी बुराइयों पे जो नज़र
तो निगाह में कोई बुरा ना रहा

जफर आदमी उसको ना जानिएगा
हो वो कैसा ही साहिब ए फ़हम ओ ज़क़ा
जिसे ऐश में याद ए खुदा ना रही
जिसे तैश में खौफ ए खुदा ना रहा

Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 9 # Bhupinder Singh #

———————————————–———————————–——————

[Author’s Note : It is very unfortunate that this article which was in making with me since a very long time is being posted at a time when the ‘legendary voice’ discussed in this article has left us for it’s heavenly abode. . .
I would like to present it as it is where I stopped last and was supposed to add about the biographical information to finish this article. However, I will try to come back in future to present another article having the biographical information of this singer.]

Welcome all to this article where I will be taking you all down memory lane with the voice of Bhupinder Singh.

I am sure this name will immediately fill your minds with those many memorable songs and nostalgia associated with it. We all know this song “Naam Gum Jaayega. . . Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” and we also know the two voices in this song. And there have been albums/programs using the tag-line “aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” or “meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” from this song, for various compilations. And very naturally mostly they were identified or are related with the legendary female voice in this song which is of the ‘legend’ Lata Mangeshkar ji.

However, for me or maybe I can say that for few or many like me, we also remember this song mainly for the male voice in this song which is Bhupinder Singh ji. . . And again, for people like me (I am sure there must be many) this ‘aawaaz hi pehchaan hai’ is the ‘pehchaan’ of the ‘aawaaz’ and the name Bhupinder Singh.

I don’t know where it did start that I fall in love with this ‘gunguni’ aawaaz (as said by Khayyam Saab) which for me is ‘a voice which has pain and compassion’ and yes, it did have a ‘soothing effect’ too. If I try to recollect it now, I remember that I must have watched this movie ‘Kinaara’ (1977) around 1979-80 in our colony club during the weekly screening of movies there.

Among other songs from this movie this song “Naam Gum Jaayega” was the song easily touching the hearts, and not only touching but constantly growing on one’s mind, and it was also a popular song in those days (if I am correct).

But, I think, before that it was “Dil Dhoondhta Hai Phir Wahi Fursat Ke Raat Din (happy version) which I always think I must have listened frequently on radio and especially during the summer vacations when we used to sleep in the courtyard during every summer season in those years… and from this song itself these lines ya garmiyon ki raat jo purwaayiyaan chalen have been connected to my mind with garmi ki chhuttiyaan aur aangan mein letna. . .

And may be after that it was “Do Deewaane Shahar Mein, which is purely nostalgic for me and I like this song very much. This song has been a continued favorite of mine over all these years and whenever I have listened to it, its ‘magic’ on me has been the same effect each and every time – whatever we consider – be it the lyrics, the composition or its singing by Bhupinder Singh and Runa Laila. (For this one song specially and very few other songs, (I think she has very few in HFM), Runa Laila’s voice is one of the voices that I had in my memory, and which also is a part of this series).

During those years may be, I had listened “Sainyya Bina Ghar Soona“, “Ye Paudhe Ye Patte … Man Kahe Main Jhoomoon“, “Rangmahal Ke Dus Darwaaze… Sainyya Nikas Gaye” which got permanently embedded in my memories connected with childhood days. And these songs thereafter became part of my ‘nostalgia’ of those years.

When I started collecting cassettes, I was always looking for these songs for my collection and except the song from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ the other two were very difficult to find and I got them much later when we landed in ‘net-yug’.

I remember I watched ‘Maasoom’ after I passed out my matriculation exams in 1983 and among other songs from this movie I did also like the song “Huzoor Is Kadar Bhi Na Itraa Ke Chaliye“.

Around the same time as I was growing my fascination for Rajesh Khanna movies, and I had become a Rajesh Khanna fan I came to know about this lovely song from ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) “Rut Jawaan Jawaan“.

Then In 1985-1986 I had bought the movie album by T-series for my cassette collection, and I became aware of this song “Yaaro Neelaam Karo Susti” because of the album of the movie ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970).

In mid-eighties, there was this album from HMV, which was a compilation of songs of Bhupinder Singh from films and titled as ‘Karoge Yaad To’ (if I am not wrong), however this cassette has been misplaced somewhere from my collection. Through this album I got introduced to many of his gems which I had not listened earlier, viz.

Mere ghar aana aana zindagi

Thodisi zameen thodaa aasmaan

Koi jab se sharik e caravan hai’

Karoge yaad to

Gulaab jism ka yoonhi nahin khilaa hoga

Ek hi khwaab kai baar dekha hai maine

I still remember that this song “Kisi Nazar Ko Tera Intezaar Aaj Bhi Hai” from the 1985 movie ‘Aitbaar’ had become very popular then and heard frequently on radio and cassette players. I remember I bought the above album from Nehru Place market in New Delhi in one of my official visits there.

But I was always well aware of the song “Hoke Majboor Mujhe” from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), since my childhood days, may be because of my parents and their love for music. This song was played on radio frequently. When I grow up, I got to listened to it frequently on music programs on radio especially in the program of ‘All India Radio’s Urdu Service’. I had bought the cassette of ‘Haqeeqat’ during my stay at Kota from 1988-89 onwards.

When I get associated with this blog, I had shared lyrics of some of the above-mentioned songs and later I had also shared the following songs with articles.

Zindagi phoolon ki nahin, phoolon ki tarah mehki rahe ae’

Koyi jab se shareeq e kaarvaan hain’

Zehar detaa hai mujhe koyi dawaa detaa hain’

Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin’

Nayi umr ke naye sitaaron’

Raat banoon main aur chaand bano tum’

Sooliyon pe chadhke choome aaftaab ko’

Ahl e dil yoon bhi nibhaa lete hain’

Ye zindagi hai chaar pal’

 Listening to the songs sung by Bhupinder Singh has always given me immense pleasure and calmed my mind during various situations in life. It is like applying the ‘spiritual balm’ on one’s wounds. Also, I think that his voice is like a ‘equilibrium’ – always balanced. In happy situations neither you go jumping with his songs and similarly in sad songs you didn’t start crying. It balances the ‘mood’ whatever you are in, and it motivates to move forward from that point of time. It inspires.

Khayyam Saab had mentioned Bhupinder Singh’s voice as ‘a meethhi gunguni awaaz’ and Gulzar Saab said this unki aawaaz ka agar taabiz ban sakta to main zaroor banaa ke pehan leta’.

What to say … such a magical voice has left us now forever.

And readers will note that I have only mentioned about his voice in above write up. We should not forget that he was also an ‘ace instrumentalist’. Naushad Saab had said about Bhupinder Singh that nobody could come to closer to him in performing on guitar.

Bhupinder Singh has been instrumental in many unforgettable hits of HFM where he has played guitar in the songs. There are over three hundred songs where he has performed Guitar. I am not going to list the songs where he played the guitar. Not only Guitar but he also played ‘wood rubaab’. (I am not sure if he played rubaab in film compositions too).

Then there is altogether separate identity of Bhupinder Singh which is as a ‘Ghazal Singer’. That will also require another separate post and I am not going to discuss this in today’s post.

In the recent months I have regularly listened to his many songs and many non-film songs too since I want to finish this write-up. I came across many songs which I wish to bring here on the blog in the future.

I would also like to mention one of his songs which is very close to my heart and which is from the album ‘Karadi Katha – Bandar Bindaas Bandar’, the song is “Ae Dost Bahadur Dost Mere”.

Then here is a link of the song which also I came across in recent past — “Moko Kahaan Dhoondhhe Re Bande

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ (1974) which is written by Yogesh. This song is sung by Bhupinder Singh and is also composed by him. Yes, I think this was the first and last time when he composed a music for a Hindi Film.

So, today on the blog, we introduce music director Bhupinder Singh Soni (or Bhupendra Soni as mentioned in HFGK).

‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for Cine Guild, Bombay. It had Kabir Bedi, Prema Narayan, Gulshan Arora, Poornima, Sudhir, Shah Agha, Mukesh Bhatt, Soni, Randhir Raj, Viju Khote, Kirti Kumar, Sundar, Uma Dutt, Mac Mohan, and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board (after many ‘cuts’ as mentioned by Bhupinder Singh himself in his ‘exclusive interview’ (link given below)) on 13.08.1974 with an ‘A’ certificate (or restricted viewing certificate).

This movie has four songs written by Yogesh and composed to music by Bhupinder Singh. This movie is making its debut on the blog today.

 

Our tributes to our beloved Bhupinder Singh!!!

unki aawaaz hi pehchaan hai … aur sadiyon tak yah pehchaan rahegi …

yah aawaaz is kaainaat mein goonjti rahegi, gungunaati rahegi, gaati rahegi …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahen nahin ham dahr ke liye. . .

zindagi phoolon ki nahin
phoolon ki tarah
mehki rahe ae. . .

Song – Har Ek Saans Hai Mehmaan Kuchh Pehar Ke Liye (Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain) (1974) Singers – Bhupendra, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhupendra

Lyrics 

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans. . .

qafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena aa
kafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena
haseen ab ye nazaarein hain
bas nazar ke liye
har ek saans …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahe nahin ham dahr ke liye

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans …

Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) – 8 (1988)

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1988.

In the previous posts under this series we have already seen how the number of movies where music was composed by RD Burman was on a ‘reducing’ trend since 1986, as compared to the previous years from 1981 to 1985. Here is the list of movies from the year 1988 where music for these movies was composed by him.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Rama O Rama’. I was aware of the title song of this movie since long as this song was featured in one of the albums of songs sung by Amit Kumar. Also I did like this song very much.

‘Rama O Rama’ was directed by Mirza Brothers for Mirza Brothers Films Pvt Ltd’. It had Raj Babbar, Kimi Katkar, and debutant Aasif. The cast also included Pran, Raza Murad, Kiran Kumar, and Gulshan Grover. Supporting cast of this movie included Shammi, Shiva, Vishakha, Prabha Mathur, Shaila Khan, Murari Sharma, Rohit, Sridhar, Master Imran, Master Lovely, Baby Aisha, Master Javed, and others.

The story and screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers. And editing of this movie was done by Vijay Pande.

The film has 6 songs. Lyrics for the songs in this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and Usman Aarif. Music is composed by RD Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Mohd Aziz, Jayshree Shivram, Iqbal Siddiqui gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie included the following sound tracks,

Sl. No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz
02 Barson Ke Baad Dekha Aarif Iqbal Siddiqui
03 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Jayshree Shivram
04 Taubaa Aashiq Aur Aisa Anand Bakshi Asha Bhonsle, Mohd. Aziz
05 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Amit Kumar, Jayshree Shivram
06 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz

Today’s song is sung by Amit Kumar and Jayshree Shivram. On screen the male version is lip-synced by debutant Aasif. I am unable to identify the actress lip-syncing the female version on screen.

This was Amit Kumar’s first recording after the death of Kishore Kumar (he has mentioned about this in an interview). We can see the difference in his voice in singing of this song. He does sound like Pancham Da in the alaap “Raama O Raama”. This is a poignant song we can see how he has poured his heart in this song.

I have not watched this movie. But as mentioned above I only remember the today’s song from this movie since long or since 1988/89 I think. Yesterday was the eighty-third birth anniversary of musical genius RD Burman. Let us listen to his this poignant composition. I am sure you will like this composition very much.

With this post the movie ‘Rama O Rama’ makes its debut on the blog.

5069 Post No. : 16987

Today’s song is from the film ‘Mala The Mighty’ (1948).

When I had first heard the name of this film, I wondered how ‘Mala’- a girl can be mighty ? I could never imagine that Mala could be a male’s name too. It was only after I grew up and toured the Eastern India (read W.B.) for official work, I came across this strange phenomenon – where, what is considered as an exclusive feminine name in the rest of India, could be a male’s name too ! Names like Mrinal, Vimal, Kamal, Jyoti, Mridul, Daya, Champavati, Devki, Dwaraka, Hiran etc. India truely is unique !

Film ‘Mala The Mighty’ was described as a costume drama, but clearly it was a C grade jungle film. The film’s other name was also ‘Sher-e-Jungle’. The film was produced by Basant Pictures of Homi Wadia. Homi was the younger brother of JBH Wadia and they were joint owners of Wadia Movietone, which was famous for making action/stunt films in the 30’s and the 40’s. The arrival of Fearless Nadia into Wadia Movietone strengthened its fortunes, The younger brother Homi Wadia fell in love with Nadia. he wanted to marry her, but his mother was against it. Therefore, only after his mother’s death, Homi married the then 51 year old Nadia and she became NADIA WADIA !

In 1942 there was a dispute between the brothers. The elder JBH Wadiawanted to make social and other genre films, while Homi wanted to continue with action/stunt films. He felt the financial risks were much less in action films and as such they already had a very good team of actors. In the end Homi Wadia formed his own Basant Pictures. The whole team led by Nadia joined Homi’s production house. Wadia Movietone had the non-human participants for stunt films, like the horse -Punjab Ka Beta, a Dog – Tiger and a Motor car – Rolls Royce Ki Beti. Homi Wadia made a new team with the Horse – Rajpoot, Dog – Moti, Motor Car – Austin Ki Bachhi and in addition they had a motorcycle – Runnio.

Home Wadia had the winning lead pair of Nadia and John Cawas for stunt films. By 1948, Nadia had reached the midpoint of her career. From 1933, in 15 years’ time she had done 28 action/stunt films. She slowed down and in the next 11 years she did 15 films only. Homi was always on the lookout for an actress who would take over from Nadia. First he got actress Radha Rani who did only 7 films for him and left. Then he found actress Leela- about whom no information is available. There was a time when several Leelas were acting in Hindi films – like Leela Chitnis, Leela Desai, Leela Chandragiri, Leela Gupte, Leela Pawar, Leela Sawant, Singer Leela Mehta and later on Leela Naidu. Out of these Leela Pawar, Leela Sawant and Leela Gupte were acting in stunt films of mainly Master Bhagwan. But Wadia’s Leela was not known. Anyway, she did only a few films, got married and left films.

Cast of the film was John Cawas, Leela, Dalpat, Azim, Shri Bhagwan, Shyamsunder, Waman Talpade and a few others. The film was also directed by John Cawas. A physical culturist, John Cawas was born in 1910 in Jubbulpore, Madhya Pradesh state. Athletic, handsome,  and with an impressive physique (he won the 1930 All-India Bodybuilding Championship), John was a natural choice for the action flicks that had become so popular in the 1930s.

Hailing from a Parsi family he appeared as an extra in Wadia Movietone’s ‘Noor-e-Yaman’ (1935) which led to supporting roles in that company’s films ‘Desh Deepak’ (1935), ‘Hunterwali’ (1935) and ‘Miss Frontier Mail’ (1936), all featuring stunt queen Fearless Nadia, who he would continue to work with in countless other films.

He quickly graduated to lead roles in pictures like ‘Toofani Tarzan’ (1937), ‘Diamond Queen’ (1940), ‘Stunt King’ (1944), ‘Black and White’ (1944), ‘Atom Bomb’ (1947), ‘Maya Mahal’ (1949), ‘Jungle Ka Jaadu’ (1955), ‘Magic in Baghdad’ (1956), ‘Diler Daku’ (1957), and ‘Circus Queen’ (1959). He acted in 40 films, out of which he worked in 26 films with Fearless Nadia. He also directed 3 films – ‘Mala The Mighty’ (1948), ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ (1956) and ‘Zimbo Ka Beta’ (1966).

Not content with just acting, he also kept busy as an assistant director, director, and writer on numerous films, the bulk of which were produced by JBH and Homi Wadia. Wadias gave him a flat in their office building to live – free for life. John Cawas never married, and after retiring from films, he continued on as caretaker of the Wadia film offices until his death on October 4, 1993.

Another cast member was Azeem – who later on became well known as a Fight Composer in Hindi films. Azim Bhai (real name: Saiyad Azim Jafri) was one of the leading action directors in Hindi films. After a stint in the army he headed off to Bombay in 1934 and found work as stunt man at Eastern Art Film Company where he was put under contract and he worked on most of the company’s films like ‘Sher Ka Panja’ (1934) ‘Bal Hatya’ (1935), ‘Dharam Ki Devi’ (1935), and ‘Prem Raatri’ (1936).

When Eastern Art Film went out of business, Azim moved over to Saroj Company then found work at Paramount Film Company, Imperial Film, and Wadia Movietone where he worked both as a stunt man and as an actor. Afterwards, he joined Master Bhagwan’s team and acted in many action/stunt films.

By the end of the 1940s, he became a Fight Master independently. Azim became well known for his swordsmanship and he often worked alongside fellow stunt coordinator Master Douglas and two were tasked with training Dilip Kumar and Prem Nath in that sport for the film ‘Aan’ (1953). Azim has also trained many action directors and stunt persons including Ghani, Ravi Khan, Dawood (aka Hercules), Veeru Ustad, and Mansoor.

Azim Bhai coordinated the stunts on a number of fantasy films including ‘King Kong’ (1963), ‘Jadugar Daku’ (1962), ‘Parasmani’ (1963), ‘Sunehri Nagin’ (1964), ‘Hercules’ (1964), and ‘Aaya Toofan’ (1964), the spy films ‘Spy In Rome’ (1968) and ‘Kismat’ (1969), as well as the horror flicks ‘Bees Saal Pehle’ (1972) and ‘Ab Kya Hoga’ (1977).

He died on 23-10-1984.

There was another Fight Composer with a similar name – S Azimbhai (Sheikh Azim), who was much junior and he operated from 1954 to 1999. He is not to be confused with the senior one.

The third interesting name in the cast is of Dalpat – a sure name in action films. Dalpat (Joshi) was a stunt artiste. A tall, sophisticated and suave person mostly appeared in negative roles . Dalpat  was a part of Wadia’s unit since its inception and played the role of villain in the stunt movies ,which used to have Fearless Nadia and John Cawas or occasionally some other hero, apt in performing stunts.

Owing to the unprecedented popularity of Miss Nadia, other filmmakers also cast her along with John Cawas and Dalpat in their similar type of stunt movies for which she was known. After her era was over, Basant Pictures concentrated their energy in making mythological and Arabian Night movies, in which Dalpat always had a role. Later in the 50s, the studio system came to an end and actors and technicians who learned their art from their benevolent master Homi Wadia, looked for assignments from other producers.

One may call it destiny or lack of initiative on the part of Dalpat. He was offered only costume/stunt/religious movies by outside producers.  Dalpat, who did a stint as production controller for a few movies, was reverentially called Dalpat Kaka owing to his age, seniority and status by film folks. Age did not affect his appearance and he looked as suave as he was many decades earlier. He started his career by acting first in ‘Hoor e Baghdad’ (1934). He worked in 120 films. His last film was ‘Toofaani Takkar’ (1978).

I had seen the film ‘Mala The Mighty’, in its second or maybe the third run in the early 50s. The film was a rehash of the frequently used, but tested formula of Tarzan – slightly modified. Such stories never stopped entertaining people. In any case who wanted the story? They all wanted the stunts, animals, fights and dances.

The story of the film is,

Mohanlal (Azim) is a rich businessman. Once while on a trip in a ship, on a bad stormy night, the ship is wrecked. He survives but his wife dies, and his 2 daughters are missing. After 15 years he decides to search for his daughters in the jungles of Kaliyana, bordering the sea, hoping that they might have been washed ashore.

With him is Chimanlal (Shri Bhagwan) who was to marry one of the daughters, and a friend Professor Tatto (Shyamsunder). On the border of the jungle they employ Ali Bux (Kareem), a guide and his friend Trivedi, who is actually a gold digger looking for the golden treasure of tribal queen Sheen. On their way they are attacked by tribals but there comes Mala The Mighty (John Cawas) who saves them with his army of elephants. Mala is the legendary king of the jungle who fights lions, tgers and kills crocodiles etc. He takes the party to his tree top house and they find Leela (Leela) a 17 year old beauty living as his companion.

Trivedi is captured by the tribals. He strikes a deal with Sheen, the queen (Leela – in double role), to capture Mala, whom Sheen loves, in exchange for the gold treasure. Mala gets captured and is brought to the tribal chief Rajan (Waman Talpade) who wants to kill him. Meanwhile Leela comes there with the party to rescue Mala. Mohan Lal recognises both girls as his long lost daughters. Rajan tries to kill Mala, but Sheen saves him and gets killed. The animal friends of Mala arrive and the tribals run away. Leela hugs her father but refuses to go with him, choosing to remain with Mala The Mighty.

Today’s song is sung by the film’s young and upcoming composer Chitragupta Shrivastav, M.A. Lyricist was Shyam Hindi.
The End !

In 2003 this was a very popular song.  They would constantly play this song on FM channels.  We had kept a small FM radio in the office, and usually it was kept on from mid-day, when all the urgent work of the section was done.  Rest of the work could be handled while listening to songs on FM radio. Listening to it many times, tends to make transcribing the lyrics, an easy task. Analyzing the words and their meaning is not so simple.

I thought the word was “udtaa hua wo. . .” in this line “girtaa hua woh aasman se. . .

girtaa huaa woh aasmaan se aa kar gira zameen par
khwaabon mein phir bhi baadal hi thhe wo kehta raha magar

There is the act of ‘falling’ twice in one line.  The poet could mean, that once the fall starts, it stops only when you reach the earth.  It would also mean that falling from a great height, i.e. aasmaan, only rock bottom will stem the fall.

Similarly, there is very interesting simile used in this first line:

toota toota ek parinda aise toota
ke phir jud na paaya
loota loota kis ne uss ko aise loota
ke phir udd na paaya

The bird is broken,
Never to be whole again
Who has done this great pillage,
So, the bird can never fly again.

kho ke apne par hi to
uss ne thha udnaa seekha
gham ko apne saathh mein le le
dard bhi tere kaam aayegaa

It learnt to fly,
Only by losing the wings,
Hold your sadness close,
The pain also will be useful.

tukde tukde ho gaya thha
har sapna jab woh toota aa
bikhre tukdon mein Allah ki
marzi ka manzar paayegaa

When the dreams are shattered to pieces
Arrange those pieces, to find
A new scenario with Allah’s will.

When dreams are broken, wishes are denied, it is always because Allah has willed something better and different for you.

girtaa huaa woh aasmaan se
aa kar gira zameen par
khwaabon mein phir bhi
baadal hi thhe
wo kehta raha magar
Allah ke bande hans de
jo bhi ho kal phir aayegaa

Falling down from the skies
It fell to the earth,
His vision full of clouds
Kept on the refrain,
O Allah’s faithful, laugh
Tomorrow is a new day
There is hope.

Now I know, why it is not ‘udtaa hua’, but ‘girtaa hua…..’.

This is a great motivational song for when the chips are down.  This was the first song of Kailash Kher, which made him famous.  I always thought that this is a private album song, but it is actually a film song from the film ‘Waisa bhi hota hai – II’.  This is supposed to be a sequel to ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’.  Both these movies have passed me by.  I am not sure if I have seen ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’, but I am sure about ‘Waisa bhi hota hai – II’.  Vishal Dadlani is the lyricist and composer with his partner Shekhar. The credits of this movie have a long list of lyricist and music directors and singers.  It also has a longish line of actors.  It seems that the film’s making is a pool of multiple strugglers in different fields of film making, who were trying to get a foothold in the industry at that time.

Kailash Kher is playing himself in the film singing this song.  So this is also a singer actor song.  Another trivia is that Rabbi Shergil also played himself and performed his own song on the screen in this film.

Song – Allah Ke Bande Hans De, Allah Ke Bande (Waisa Bhi Hota Hai II) (2003) Singer – Kailash Kher, Lyrics – Vishal Dadlani, MD – Vishal Shekhar

Blog Day :

5034 Post No. : 16943

Today’s song is from the ‘Golden Years’ of ‘Hindi Film Music’. It is from the movie ‘Garibi-1949’.

I had come across this song more than seven years back and I had shared it as well however this song remains to be posted till now.

This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali.

Regulars on the blog must be aware that I have also shared many Zohrabai Ambalewali songs as I like them very much. I had been listening to her many songs during 2013-2014 when I used to browse and listen to her songs regularly.

Today’s movie ‘Garibi’ was directed by Ramchandra Thakur. It had Geeta Bali, Jayraj, Nirupa Roy, P. Kailash, Usha Kiran, Banke Bihari, Ramesh Thakur, M.K. Hasan, Bhoopat Rai, Tarabai, Jayram, Jawahar Kaul and others.

Here is a brief about this movie as mentioned by our Respected Arunkumar ji in his comments on one of the song-posts of this movie

GARIBI (1949), a Ranjit movietone film had music by its contracted composer B C Rani and lyricists were Rajendra Krishna, Shevan Rizvi, B.R. Sharma and M G Adeeb.
I don’t know whether Chandulal Shah ever knew on what storylines their movies were being produced on the assembly line, because not only all 4 set-sections of Ranjit studios were always shooting some films but sometimes they used to hire the neighboring Sharda studios also.
This was one movie which eulogized the virtues of poverty (Garibi) as compared to Riches (Amiri). Geeta Bali, hailing from a poor family loves and gets married to rich Jairaj. She finds it difficult to adjust to the rich ways of her sasural, particularly Saas-Sasur (Tarabai-Bhupat Rai),while her poor mother(Nirupa Roy) and Father(P. Kailash) get poorer but they have very high ideals and come to the rescue of their rich relatives when there is a problem with their daughter(Usha Kiran),who is in trouble with her husband(Jawahar Kaul).
Having learnt that only Money cannot give happiness, the rich family respects the poor and poverty. This was a very unconvincing storyline and badly handled too. The only saving grace was its superb music.

This movie has eights songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).

Music for this movie was composed by Bulo C. Rani. Four lyricists contributed the eight songs in this movie and they are Rajinder Krishan (three songs), Shewan Rizvi (two songs), B.R. Sharma (two songs) and M.G. Adeeb (one song).

Here is the list of songs of this movie :-

From the above table we can see that three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. The first song of this movie was posted on 21.10.2011 and the second song followed a week later on 28.10.2011. However, after that this movie was forgotten and the third song of this movie appeared on the blog after a gap of almost six years.

Now, today, we are going to discuss the fourth song from this movie after a gap of another four and half years.

Today’s song is written by B.R. Sharma and it is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali. This is a nice philosophical/ motivational song and I like it very much.

Music is composed by Bulo C. Rani.

Let us now listen to today’s song …


Song-Do roz ka jeena hai jee jee ke jiye jaa (Gareebi)(1949) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

bhool ja afsaana
Is duniya faani ka
Armaanon ki lehron pe
Sun geet jawaani ka
In maujon mein tu kho ja
Aur mauj kiye ja
Jiye jaa
Jiye jaa
Do roz ka jeena hai
Jee jee ke jiye jaa
Do roz ka jeena hai
Jee jee ke jiye jaa

Ye ishq tamaasha hai
Aur husn tamaashaayi
Hai donon hi deewaane
Aur donon hi saudaayi
Tu donon ki masti ko
Pehlu mein liye jaa
Jiye jaa
Jiye jaa
Do roz ka jeena hai
Jee jee ke jiye jaa
Do roz ka jeena hai
Do roz ka jeena hai
Jee jee ke jiye jaa aa aa aa
jiye ja
Jiye ja
Do roz ka jeena hai
Jee jee ke jiye jaa

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Missing Films of 1972-Kavi Sammelan -03#
——————————————

Welcome all to today’s post.

Today’s ‘poetry recitation’ is the third offering from this movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ (1972) to appear on the blog.

The first ‘poem-post’ from this movie – “Tum Ek Baar Priye Aa Jaao“, was posted on the blog on 05.02.2022. This poem was written and recited by ‘poet-lyricist’ Maya Govind. The second poem from this movie – “Lakshmi Maiyya Var De” was presented on 12.02.2022 which was written and recited by Kaka Hathrasi.

The movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ was directed by Kedar Sharma for Rajshri Productions Pvt Ltd., and it was was produced by Tarachand Badjatya. Compering of this poetry recitation program and introduction of the poets was done by Ramrikh ‘Manhar’.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1972, which means this movie has now completed ‘fifty years’ of its age 😊

The footnote for this movie page in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that “Bharat ke shreshthhtam Kavi pehli baar ek saath rajat-pat par pesh kiye gaye thhe” – (“भारत के श्रेष्ठतम कवि पहली बार एक साथ रजत-पट पेश किए गए थे”). Poems of following poets are included in this movie.

Rashtrakavi Shri Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’
Santosh Anand (mentioned as ‘Santoshanand’)
Kaka Hathrasi
Som Thakur
Bekal ‘Utsahi’
‘Neeraj’
Snehlata ‘Sneh’
Radheshyam ‘Pragalbh’
Shail Chaturvedi
Govind Vyas
Maya Devi
Nirbhay Hathrasi
Balkavi Bairaagi
Omprakash ‘Aaditya’
Manik Verma
Kedar Sharma
Gopal Prasad Vyas

(Addenda in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for this movie mentions that there were two more creations by Vimlesh and Paras Bhramar in this movie.)

Today’s poem is written by Gopaldas Saxena popularly known to us by his pen-name ‘Neeraj’. He has given us a ‘treasure trove’ of his poems and many immortal lyrics in Hindi Film Songs which will be read and savored by generations to come, as long as poetry and Hindi Film Music is discussed.

This recitation is a set of three short poems. In Hindi, this is called a ‘मुक्तक’ (muktak). These are short poems that are not connected to each other, although they are presented together.

Neeraj ji was born on 04.01.1925 and left this world on 19.07.2018. A detailed post on Neeraj ji, with the song “Isko Bhi Apnaata Chal Usko Bhi Apnaata Chal” (film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’, 1965), was written by our Shri Sadanand ji on 20.07.2018 as a tribute to him. I think this is one of the excellent posts on the blog that everybody should read. Hence, I am not mentioning about Neeraj ji’s biography or filmography in brief here. Because his ‘stature’ is so great and requires a post of such calibre which is already written by Sadanand ji. This post mentions in details about the biography of Neeraj ji and his journey into the world of poetry and film songs. I request readers to kindly go through this post.

Let us now listen to today’s philosophical poem – a set of three short ‘मुक्तक’,  recited on screen by a younger Neeraj ji himself.


Song-Khushi Jis Ne Khoji Wo Dhan Le Ke Lauta (Kavi Sammelan)(1972) singer-Neeraj, Lyrics-Neeraj

Lyrics

Muktak – 1

khushi jis ne khoji
khushi jis ne khoji
wo dhan le ke lauta aa
hansi jis ne khoji
chaman le ke lauta

khushi jis ne khoji
wo dhan le ke lauta
hansi jis ne khoji
chaman le ke lauta

magar pyaar ko
khojne jo chala wo o o o
na tan le ke lauta
na mann le ke lauta
khushi jisne khoji

Muktak – 2

koi chala
koi chala
to kis liye
nazar tu dabdaba gayi

koyi chala
to kis liye
nazar tu dabdaba gayi
singaar kyun seham gaya
udaasi kyun ye chha gayi

na janm kuchh
na mrityu kuchh
bas itni sirf baat hai ae ae
ki kisi ki aankh khul gayi
kisi ko neend aa gayi ee
koyi chalaa to kis liye …

Muktak – 3

chhup chhup ashru bahaane waalon
moti arth lutaane waalon
kuchh sapnon ke mar jaane se
jeewan nahin maraa karta hai

sapna kya hai
nayan sej par
soya hua aankh ka paani
sapna kya hai
nayan sej par
soya hua aankh ka paani ee ee
aur tootna hai us ka jyon
jaage kachchi neend jawaani

geeli umar banaane waalo
doobe bina nahaane waalo
geeli umar banaane waalo
doobe bina nahaane waalo
kuchh paani ke beh jaane se
saawan nahin maraa karta hai ae ae

chhup chhup ashru bahaane waalo
moti arth lutaane waalo
kuchh sapnon ke mar jaane se
jeewan nahin maraa karta hai

मुक्तक – 1

खुशी जिसने खोजी
खुशी जिसने खोजी
वो धन ले के लौटा
हंसी जिसने खोजी
चमन ले के लौटा

खुशी जिसने खोजी
वो धन ले के लौटा
हंसी जिसने खोजी
चमन ले के लौटा

मगर प्यार को
खोजने चला वो॰ ॰ ॰
ना तन ले के लौटा
ना मन ले के लौटा

खुशी जिसने खोजी

मुक्तक – 2

कोई चला
कोई चला
तो किस लिए
नज़र तू डबडबा गई

कोई चला
तो किस लिए
नज़र तू डबडबा गई
सिंगार क्यों सहम गया
उदासी क्यों ये छा गई

ना जन्म कुछ
ना मृत्यु कुछ
बस इतनी सिर्फ बात है
के किसी की आँख खुल गई
किसी को नींद आ गई
कोई चला
तो किस लिए॰ ॰ ॰

मुक्तक – 3
छुप छुप अश्रु बहाने वालो
मोती अर्थ लुटाने वालो
कुछ सपनों के मर जाने से
जीवन नहीं मरा करता है

सपना क्या है
नयन सेज पर
सोया हुआ आँख का पानी
सपना क्या है
नयन सेज पर
सोया हुआ आँख का पानी
और टूटना है उसका ज्यों
जागे कच्ची नींद जवानी

गीली उमर बनाने वालो
डूबे बिना नहाने वालो
गीली उमर बनाने वालो
डूबे बिना नहाने वालो
कुछ पानी के बह जाने से
सावन नहीं मरा करता है

छुप छुप अश्रु बहाने वालो
मोती अर्थ लुटाने वालो
कुछ सपनों के मर जाने से
जीवन नहीं मरा करता है

Mukesh and his Co-Singers – 8
——————————————–

Today, we take up Mukesh’s association with playback singer Jagjit Kaur wherein there is a solitary duet and that too in an unreleased film called ‘Hum Ek Hain’.

There are 3 released movies named ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and one unreleased. Mukesh has sung one solo in one of the released movies under Usha Khanna and one solo and a duet in the unreleased movie under Khaiyyam. Confused? Well, me too and hence the table below.

Films titled ‘HUM EK HAIN’
Year of release Composer Mukesh songs
1946 Hunslal Bhagatram Nil
1969 Usha Khanna One solo
Unreleased Khayyam A solo and a duet with Jagjit Kaur
1982 N/A N/A

Further, I came across a rather familiar song which is again represented by the name “Hum Ek Hain” – “Awaaz Do Hum Ek Hain.  And seeing that popular actors have been featured in the video version of the song, one is left to imagine which of the above films, the said song belongs to.

Fortunately, I did not have to struggle much to trace the details as it was amply clear that it was a stand-alone NFS (1962) patriotic song produced by Govt of India’s Films Division and sung with much gusto by Rafi Saab. Details of the said song are represented on our blog in this link here. Of all the composers Khayyam Saab scored music for the album thereby creating additional curiosity as well as confusion for me.

Now, an original film booklet sheet of 1969 film in which Mukesh has a solo is easily available on the net and is reproduced below.

For some strange reason, Mukesh’s name is missing in the list of playback singers. I am not sure if the song was dropped from the film soundtrack, but the solo does exist in audio form.

I have covered one post on Mukesh’s complete association with Usha Khanna – “Tera Mera Pyaar Koi, Aaj Kal Ki To Baat Nahin“, and two separate posts on his filmi (“Sab Tthaath Pada Reh Jaayega“) and NFS songs (“Na Hui Gar Mere Marne Se Tasalli Na Sahi“) under composer Khaiyyam. Many songs in the said three posts are still available for grabs for covering in the blog.

Coming to Mukesh’s combo with Jagjit Kaur, I have said in the beginning of the post that there is a solitary duet. It’s a surprise that the two artists did not collaborate more in spite of Mukesh seemingly to be close to Khayyam Saab family. However, we should remember that Khayyam Saab himself engaged Jagit Kaur sparingly for playback songs and relied more on the two Mangeshkar sisters.

As we are well aware, both Khayyam Saab and his wife Jagjit Kaur left for their heavenly abode in the very recent past.

Khayyam Saab:           18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019
Jagjit Kaur:                1930 – 15 August 2021

I pay tributes to both the artists and bring forth this duet of Jagjit Kaur and Mukesh from an unreleased film titled ‘Hum Ek Hain’ and composed by Khayyam Saab. Jagjit Kaur sings in unison with Mukesh and her voice is not heard separately. Such is the rarity of this only duet of the combo.

Song – Ram Kaho Ya Rahim Kaho Tum Krishn Kaho Ya Kareem Kaho  (Hum Ek Hain) (UR) (1960s) Singer – Mukesh, Jagjit Kaur (only in chorus with Mukesh), Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Khayyaam
Mukesh + Jagjit Kaur
Mukesh + Jagjit Kaur + Chorus
Chorus

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

wo hai allah
wo hai ishwar
wo hai mukti dhaam
ek nahin sau roop hain us ke
ek nahin sau naam

ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

mandir masjid ek hain dono us ke aage
uski leela dekh naa paayen mahal abhaage
duniya rasta bhool gayi hai aisa laage
mann mein koi khot rahe na mann tab jaage
aapas mein matbhed na barto
itna mat abhimaan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

zaaten paaten varg niyam sab jhootthe naare
rasmen hon yaa reet ke bandhan dhong hain saare
nadaanon ne aap kiye hain ye batwaare
wo hai sab ka aaj bhi us ko sab hain pyaare
deen yahi hai dharm yahi hai
maanavta ka maan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

kaun ye mandir dwaar khada hai sheesh jhukaaye
(aaa aaa aaa aaa)

tarse par bhagwan ke darshan kar na paaye
(aaa aaa aaa aaa)

sab par mandir dwaar khulen kab wo din aaye
(hmm hmm hmm hmm)

kab tak ye andher kahaan tak ye anyaay..ae..ae
kab tak ye andher kahaan tak ye anyaay..ae..ae
jis ne sabko ek banaaya
uska mat apmaan karo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
awaaz tumhari pahunchegi
maalik tak jo bhi naam bhajo
ram kaho ya rahim kaho
tum krishn kaho ya kareem kaho
ram kaho ya rahim kaho

वो है अल्लाह
वो है ईश्वर
वो है मुक्ति धाम
एक नहीं सौ रूप हैं उसके
एक नहीं सौ नाम

राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

मंदिर मस्जिद एक हैं दोनों उसके आगे
उसकी लीला देख ना पाएँ महल अभागे
दुनिया रस्ता भूल गई है ऐसा लागे
मन में कोइ खोट रहे ना मन तब जागे
आपस में मतभेद ना बरतो
इतना मत अभिमान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

ज़ातें पातें वर्ग नियम सब झूठे सारे
रस्में हों या रीत के बंधन ढोंग हैं सारे
नादानों ने आप किए हैं ये बटवारे
वो है सबका आज भी उसको सब हैं प्यारे
दीन यही है धर्म यही है
मानवता का मान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

कौन ये मंदिर द्वार खड़ा है शीश झुकाये
(आ आ आ आ)
तरसे पर भगवान के दर्शन कर ना पाये
(आ आ आ आ)
सब पर मंदिर द्वार खुलें कब वो दिन आए
(हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म)
कब तक ये अंधेर कहाँ तक ये अन्याय॰॰ए॰॰ए
कब तक ये अंधेर कहाँ तक ये अन्याय॰॰ए॰॰ए
जिसने सबको एक बनाया
उसका मत अपमान करो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
आवाज़ तुम्हारी पहुंचेगी
मालिक तक जो भी नाम भजो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो
तुम कृष्ण कहो या करीम कहो
राम कहो या रहीम कहो

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.
