This is the last song and culmination of a short series of posts about inspired/copied songs. The team of creators of this song from Sangharsh(1999) is Jatin-Lalit, Sameer and Sonu Nigam. This inspiration behind this song is the OPN song from “Ek Musaafir Ek Hasina”.

This is the list of the five songs posted so far in this series:

Song Posted on
Tu meri zindagi hai 21 Sep 2020
Bhoori bhoori aankhon waala ek ladka hai 28 Sep 2020
Love ki ghanti baj gayi meri 28 Sep 2020
Raaja ko raani se pyaar ho gaya 1 Oct 2020
Saathiya tu mere sapnon ka meet hai 6 Oct 2020

Before internet and Youtube, it may have been easy to simply copy or lift a song created by someone else and pass it off as your own. Lay persons who are not actually conversant with music and composition process would not be able to find a link.

There is the famed instance of Madan Mohan doing this sort of thing, and using the tune from Sajjad Hussain’s “Sangdil” song “Ye hawa ye raat ye chaandni”, for his song “Tujhe kya sunaaun main dilruba” in “Aakhri Daao” (1958). In fact Madan Mohan went on to use the same tune for the song “hai isi mein pyar ki aabroo” in Anpadh (1962).

In fact, the tune is also very similar for this ghazal rendition in Laal Qila.

Coming back to the song from Sangharsh(1999), the singer Sonu Nigam is trying to sing the style of Kishore Kumar, which he does in many songs, but here the precedent is a Rafi rendition. It appears to a deliberate attempt to make the song sound different from the “Ek Musafir Ek Haseena” song.

I have seen this movie on cable TV, so can try to give a bit of the background. It was about the horrors of ‘child sacrifice’ and black magic like issues that are a part of ancient dogmas prevalent in some parts. Practices like child sacrifice for attaining immortality. Ashutosh Rana played the character of the tantric/fanatic, which is looking to sacrifice a particular child of certain physical attributes, at a particular time and hour determined by some principles of black magic on a full moon night. The takeaway of the film was Ashutosh Rana’s performance as the tantric.

Priety Zinta is a police officers who is assigned to solve this case of case of saving the child kidnapped by the tantric.

Akshay Kumar is a professor in jail, the crime is unclear. Priety Zinta needs Akshay’s help to solve the case and save the child from being sacrificed.

The topic was certainly unique, never dealt before in hindi films. Priety Zinta visits Akshay Kumar in jail and he manages to spook her so much that she calls her friend Aman Verma in Delhi to share her fear and insecurity. Aman Verma is trying to reassure her divert her attention from her fears of past and present by singing this song on the phone.

So this is a phone song too. The funny part is Aman Verma’s phone goes dead while is song is still going on, he goes to a public phone booth to complete the song. Complete it does, with the donkeys surrounding the phone booth 🙂 🙂

tumhaari khataa hai

nigaahen milaa key yoon
mera chain lenaa
sataa ke mohabbat mein
yoon dard denaa
mujhe dekh ke
aise palken jhukaanaa
sharaarat nahin hai to
phir aur kya hai
haan
mujhe raat din
bas mujhe
chaahti ho

la la la la la

tumhen neend aayegi
ab na mere bin
mujhe hai yaqeen
aisa aayegaa ek din
khuli teri zulfon mein
soyaa rahoongaa aa
tere hi khayaalon mein
khoyaa rahoongaa aa
kabhi gaur se
meri aankhon mein dekho
meri jaan tumhaara hi
chehra chhupaa hai
haan
mujhe raat din
bas mujhe
chaahti ho
kaho na kaho
mujh ko
sab kuchh pataa hai
haan
karoon kya mujhe
tum bataati nahin ho
chhupaati ho mujh se yeh
tumhaari khataa hai
haan
mujhe raat din
bas mujhe
chaahti ho
hmmm mmm
hey he ae
la la laa aa

So old order changes and gives way to new. 2015 is gone and now we are onto the new year of 2016. Just the change of one day changes the month as well as year. It is a symbolic change that is recognised only by humans. Other species, like for example our pets do not recognise this concept of change of months and years.

Hindi film industry is like an ocean.Several small and big rivers join it and the ocean too gracefully accepts everything. Once inside, the individual rivers lose their identity and become a part of the ocean. Similarly, people from all corners of India join this industry, but only few get proper opportunity and recognition here. The rest simply disappear in this ocean. Success, they say, has no formula. Famous composer C.Ramchandra had once said, ‘If only there is anyone who can predict correctly what will succeed and what the public will like, such a person can earn millions here !’

‘Leader” is one of the top well known films from the year 1964. The year is crowded with such hit and popular films full of wonderful songs from Jahaan Ara, Haqueeqat, Wo kaun thhi, Shehnaayi, Aap ki Parchhayiyaan, Kashmir Ki kali, Dosti, April Fool Chitralekha, to Ghazal, Qawwali Ki Raat,Dosti, Kohraa & Chitralekha, Saanjh aur Savera, Sangam, Shagoon, Suhaagan, Raajkumar, Ziddi, Sharaabi, Beta Beti etc. I think all will agree this is an inspiring list of films. The year was an especially high point for Madan Mohan with eight releases going by the films already represented in the blog, which is equal to Shankar-Jaikishan’s eight films(songs posted). I think I will concentrate on 1964 for a while, for sending lyrics and writing an occasional post.

“Ek Do Teen” (1953) was a Shorey Films Production. After the success of his “Ek Thhi Ladki” (1949), Roop Shorey made “Ek Do Teen” (1953) with a similar story line and similar team. He in fact would make movies on the same storyline for the rest of his movie making career till 1970s, but would never be able to replicate the success of “Ek Thhi Ladki” (1949) again.

Last night, when the 700th song of Kishore Da was posted, immediately there was a comment by Mahesh Bhai Mammadapur, requesting to know whether Kishore Da has any songs sung under the music direction of Naushad. Decidedly, this pairing is absolutely rare, because their peak periods were far apart. When Naushad was on the top in 50s and 60s, Kishore Da was considered less than a mainstream singer. And when Kishore Da ruled the world of Hindi film music in the 70s and 80s, Naushad Sb was a spent force, with really very few films to his credit during this period.

Here is another fun song from the film “Minister”. Two months ago the post another song “Aji Biwi ko ghar pe bitthla ke” from this film appeared in the blog. The song I am discussing now will be the third song from this film. This is a “telephone song” sung by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. Music is by Madan Mohan and Lyricist is Rajendra Krishan. Unfortunately, I dont recognise the two actors who are lip synching this song. The song is funny enough, just like “mere piyaa gaye rangoon”. Bhagwaan Dada is seen only briefly during the song. Telephone songs have their own appeal as the the singers are required to be on the opposite ends of the line. But in this song, though it starts in a telephone booth and ends there too, the protagonists are singing it with each other and roaming around outdoors.

“Waqt” (1965) was one of the most influential Hindi movies of all times. The story of “Waqt” (1965) was by no means original, but the scale and presentation of the the story was was certainly grand. I have already given several reasons in the past why I call this movie an influential movie.
