“Mem Didi”(1961) was produced by L B Lachhman and directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for L B Films, Bombay. The movie had Lalita Pawar, Jayant, David, Tanuja, Kaysi Mehra, Dhumal,Rashid Khan etc in it.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our inhouse encyclopaedia has done great research on this movie. He informs us that this movie was a blantant copy of Frank Capra’s “A pocketful of Miracles” (1961). To decades later, Hrishikesh Mukherjee came up with another remake of the movie called “Achcha Bura”(1983). He also informs us that the hero of “Mem Didi”(1961), Kaycee Mehra was actually K C Mehra. He played Hero in “Chhabili”(1960) as ell as “Mem Didi”(1961) and then left films. He joined Tata Steel and served there for 41 years retiring as a Deputy Managing Director. Subsequently he became Resident Director of M/s Shapoor ji Pallon ji.

“Mem Didi”(1961) had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Mem Didi”(1961) to appear in the blog. This somng is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

The song is picturised as a picnic song cum growing up song on a very young Tanuja and others.

A.R. Rehman’s 54th Birthday on 06.01.2021
———————————————————-

Jo pehle din hi se dil ka kaha na kartey ham
To ab yeh logon ki baatien sunaana kartey ham

Agar na haath hmein uss dilrubaa ke dil detey
To dil par haathh sadaa dhar liya na kartey ham

Wo aafat-e-dil-o-jaan pe agar na martey
To apne marney ki duaa har dam duaa kiya na karte ham

Na hosh khotey agar uss pari ki baaton par
To aap hi aap aisi baatien kiya na kartey ham

Na lagti aankh to din raat sotey hi rehtey
Kisi ki chaah na karte to kya na karte ham

Jo ghambuton ka na hotaa teri tarah ‘Momin’
To dekhcharkh` ko hai, hai kh`udaa na kartey ham

– Momin Kh`anMomin –

I heard this above ghazal recital and liked the simplicity of expressions. It was credited to Momin Khan Momin(1800–14 May 1852), so I thought there has to be more to this ghazal. I found a ‘Deewan-e-Momin’ on Rekhta and confirmed that there are few more ash’aarin the complete ghazal. He was a contemporary of Mirza Ghalib.A most famous sha’ir by MomimKh`an Momin is this:

Tum mere paas hotey ho goyaa
Jab koyi dusraa nahin hotaa

It is said that Mirza Ghalib was so impressed by this sha’ir, that he had offerred his whole “Deewan-e-Ghalib” in exchange of this one sha’ir. Of course, in true legend’s style, the exchange did not happen. Even if there was no organised law for protection of intellectual property than, the exchange would have been redundant. Because Ghalib’s work is Ghalib’s and Momin’s kalaam remains Momin’s, after all.

Here is the famous sha’ir by the underrated poet which inspired this song:

Woh jo ham mein tum mein qaraar thha, tumhen yaad ho ke na yaad ho
Wohi, ya’ani wa’adaa nibaah ka,tumhen yaad ho ke nayaad ho

I felt compelled to give some details to emphasis the significance of Momin Kh`an Momin, as there is not much written about him on this blog.

Wikipedia says

“Momin was something of a polymath, with several interests apart from medicine and poetry. He was also competent inmathematics, geomancy, astrology, chess and Hindustani music.” And that his grave is located in Delhi, near the parking lot of Maulana Azad Medical college. What I have learned is that this medical college is India’s top medical college, second only to AIIMS, Delhi, I am yet to come across a doctor who has studied there. So now I am resolving to ask him/her whenever I encounter an alumnus, about the grave of Momin Kh’an Momin.

**********

Now to the real subject of this post, i.e A. R. Rehman. Though I grew up on the average, good, very good, fabulous and fantastic hindi film music of the golden era of hindi film music, A R Rehman still came as a breath of exotic air in 1992 with his debut film ‘Roja’. The translated lyrics from Tamil was a huge drawback of the songs of that film, but the touching melody and the brand new sounds of A R Rehman’s orchestration more than overpowered it. He has come a long way from those days, as has hindi film music. He has travelled through the waves of adulations, via his music school, his acumen in being the first musician to actually own the music he creates, through Sufiana, to fusion, Western classical, via the oscars etc., he is a global celebrity. A big celebrity in a hugely populated country like india is bound to be recognised at global level, that is the power of a big market.

The song I am presenting here is from the film “Jaane tu ya jaane na” (2008), with A R Rehman’s music and lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala. Seven singers are singing this song namely Benny Dayal, Satish Chakravarthy, Sayonara, Philips, Darshana, Svetha, Bhargavi, and Anupama Deshpande.

Only one song Pappu Can’t dance saala (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na), is so far posted, making this the second song from the film. This is an outdoorsy song filmed on very pristine locations, near the river, where Imran Khan and Genelia D’souza with friends are picnicking, and having fun. The location of shooting is a bit away from the usual Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar, but nearby, with the long road, which goes along Krishna River. This is the other route for travelling to Mahabaleshwar.

This film is produced by A’amir Khan and his cousin Mansoor Khan. The lyricist A’bbas Tyrewala is also the director of the film for launch of A’amir Khan’s nephew, I’mran khan. Quite the family affair this is, so my assessment of locations this song is filmed is bang on target. More so, as I have recently travelled the route, remembered this song and looked up to confirm that the mountains haven’t changed much in 12 years 🙂 :-).


SongNazren milaana nazren churaana (Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Naa)(2008) Singers-Benny Dayal, Satish Chakravarthy, Sayonara, Philips, Darshana, Svetha, Bhargavi, Anupama Deshpande Lyrics-Abbas Tyrewala, MD-A R Rahman

13/10/2020 – 33rd death anniversary of Kishore Kumar
——————————————————————————–

Today is that day when we all remember the phenomenal Kishore Kumar. I should have planned ahead, but could not do so. Firstly I am working on so many posts at once that it is becoming a blur what is done and what is not. Secondly, I was under the weather for the whole weekend, and antibiotics make me more blurred than anything else.

Well, a post is to be done so one must look for a song. There are scores of songs to choose from. I have thought of a song from “Kaaran”, but I found today that it is already posted. Next I thought of the song from Poonam(1981) “main hoon haseena khol darwazaa dil ka”, which is not posted, but it turned out to be Amit Kumar’s song. It is possible for me to confuse Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar songs, as both sing in the same style and have similar voices. For example for a long time I was under the impression that bade achche lagte hain from Baalika Badhu is Kishore Kumar singing.

Then I looked for songs in the year 1980, thinking how there were so many songs which Kishore Kumar sang with Mohammed Rafi sahab. There was a pattern there where songs of major film in 1979, 1980 and 1981,in movies like, Shaan, Abdulla, Dostana, Naseeb, Karz, The Burning Train, Jaani Dusham, Kaala paththar, Raajput, The Great Gambler, Aap ke deewane, Aap to aise na thhe, Aas Paas, Bulandi, Ham Paanch, Raam Balram, Swyamvar , Kaalia, Khuda Qasam, Deedar-e-Yaar etc. were divided among the two of them.

Not specifically looking for Rafi-Kishore song, almost decided on a background Kishore solo from “Apne Paraaye”, which is a sad song, with everyone crying (there are many characters including Shabana Azmi) except Amol Palekar, who is smiling in his inimitable way. This is a “afsardaa” or a despairing category song.

But I moved beyond this one too and have landed on a song from “Zabardast” (1985). I am glad to be listening and viewing this song. I have not seen this movie either, but it was a multi-starrer of a kind and four of those stars are present in this outdoor picnic song. What with school kids carrying colour full flags, school bus, Rajeev Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri with an umbrella as a prop, Bagpiper like music in the interlude, and two cars on Table land of Panchgani.

Give me such songs anytime, I prefer these type of songs to club, party or dance songs. The song starts with Rati Agnihotri and Rajeev Kapoor arguing on Table land, Sunny Deol and Jayaprada march in with the school kids carrying flags. Sunny Deol hands over the white flag to Rati Agnihotri as a peace offering and Rajeev Kapoor starts singing the song. The Umbrella prop is visible throughout.

Song is a solo by Kishore Kumar, entirely sung on screen by Rajeev Kapoor, who is trying to woo Rati Agnihotri. Sunny Deol and Jaya Prada are also present and looking on. A good, catchy and feel good song, composed by R. D. Burman and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This movie is making its debut here with this song. Out of total 2709 songs recorded by Kishore Kumar 1209 are posted in the blog.
A tribute to the ‘harfanmaula’ on this Remembrance Day.

Blog Day :

4384 Post No. : 15738

A week before the 12th birth anniversary of the Blog on July 19, 2020, an idea propped up in my mind. Some time back, I had read the interviews of a 78 RPM record collector of Indore and also of the vintage gramophone turn-table collectors of Pala near Kottayam which were published in some newspapers. Atul ji’s Blog has been in existence for 12 years with almost daily posting of songs. With nearly 15800 songs spread over 4300 films covered and a hit of a little over 1,36,22,000, the Blog must have attained the numero uno position among the musical blogs in India. This is a great achievement. So, I felt that the creator of this Blog – Atul Besra deserves to be interviewed which should get published in newspapers/magazines. This was just my momentary thought.

Soon, I found myself alighting from a train at Gorakhpur Junction railway station on Sunday morning, July 19th. I hired one of the yellow-coloured autorickshaws queued up outside the railway station for reaching Atul’s railway quarters. Luckily, I found Atul ji taking a stroll in his railway quarter complex with his dog, Bhole when my autorickshaw was on its way to enter the complex. I got down from the autoricksha and walked towards Atul ji.

‘Good morning’. I wished him to which he reciprocated looking at me somewhat perplexed and confused. Either he must have been surprised to find me suddenly in front of him or he failed to recognise me.

‘I am sorry I came here to meet you without giving you any intimation. My intention was to make a surprise visit to your house to wish you personally on the occasion of 12th birth anniversary of the Blog and to have a tete-a-tete with you’. I said apologetically to Atul ji.

‘Oh! Thank you. I am pleasantly surprised to find you here’. With this, the confusion in Atul ji’s mind vanished. He cut short his stroll and took me inside the complex of the Officers’ Quarters. As I was walking through the complex, I saw a couple of peacocks roaming on the lawns. The lawns were skirted by flower plants. There were good number of trees in the complex. As we were walking through the lawns, I found some squirrels running away from us and climbing on the trees. From the tree, a squirrel looked at us in contempt flipping its tail, probably signaling us that we had encroached upon his territory. Overall, the complex had a good ambience.

Inside the complex, there were rows of brick-coloured houses. Atul ji showed me his house which had a mini-gate. A name board at the gate displayed his name in Hindi and English. Below his name was a caution notice to the visitors: ‘Beware of friendly Dogs inside the house’. This, I thought, may be a caution of a different type – the dogs can ‘lure’ the visitors with their friendly dispositions.

After freshening up and finishing a breakfast of Aaloo Parathas with curd and pickles, we relaxed for sometime in main room which was much larger than what I had in my flat. There was an open wall unit on which I specifically noticed a replica of Vande Bharat Train-18 and a cricket bat personally signed by MS Dhoni. On a corner low-height table, an old gramophone record player with a big pavilion horn was kept. Suddenly, Bhole came from nowhere and sat in front of the turn-table, looking straight into the horn giving a logo-like image of HMV. The wall hanging comprised of a Railway Calendar, a portrait of Kapil Dev holding World Cup 1983, and a photo-collage comprising of popular singers, lyricists and music directors of golden period of Hindi film music. Lastly, I noticed a metal photo-frame in which a picture of Bhole, Chhote and a cat resting together was placed.

When I was surveying the main room, Atul ji was immersed in some thoughts – may be thinking about an outline of an article to be written and posted on the Blog for today’s special occasion or about some official work in the pipe line.

‘Let me formally congratulate you for completing 12 years of continuous blogging without a break’ and a Happy 12th anniversary of the Blog. I wished him once again to commence an informal interview with him so that his responses looked natural.

‘Thank you for a pleasant surprise visit. The Blog is the labour of love not only of me but all those who have been regularly contributing by way of guest posts, comments, suggestions etc’. Atul ji said with all humilities, keeping a watch over Bhola who had sat in front of the horn of an old turn-table.

I started with some questions to Atul ji which I had already framed in my mind. But in order not to appear as a formal interview, I asked these questions as of I was in conversation with him.

Me: Since when did you get interested in Hindi film songs?

Atul ji: During my growing up days in the late 1960s, one day I heard a song ‘mere saamne waali khidki mein’ on the radio. I loved the song. I was told by my maternal uncle that the singer was Kishore Kumar. Later, I heard several songs of Kishore Kumar. A few months later, the songs of ‘Aradhana’ (1969) became the rage of the nation. Some songs of this movie were sung by Kishore Kumar. I came to know that Rajesh Khanna was the hero of that movie. Rajesh Khanna as an actor and Kishore Kumar as the male playback singer became instant hits in Hindi films. Gradually, my liking in Hindi film music widened to songs of the golden period of Hindi film music, broadly comprising of the songs of the films released during 1950-65. Later on, when I got involved in my Blog, I also developed taste for the old film songs especially of K L Saigal, Pankaj Mullick, Kanan Devi, Ameerbai Karnataki and many more.

Me: How did you get the idea of starting a blog exclusive for discussing a Hindi film song a day?

Atul ji: I used to converse with Raja ji on a cricketing forum on the matter relating to cricket. Gradually, the conversations turned toward Hindi films songs also when I came to know that Raja ji was also interested in discussing Hindi film songs. We felt that it was not appropriate to discuss Hindi films songs on a cricketing forum. Since we had a mutual passion for Hindi film songs, I proposed creating a separate blog for discussing Hindi film songs which Raja ji whole-heartedly supported the idea. Thus, https://atulsongaday.me/ was born on July 19, 2008 with the intention of discussing one Hindi song a day on the Blog. I can say that it was Raja ji who inspired me to create the Blog. The first song posted on the Blog was mile na phool to kaanton se dosti kar lee.

Me: What was the response to the Blog?

Atul ji: It is quite natural that in the initial period, the responses by way of the visitors to the Blog and comments on the songs were slow as the Blog was newly started and its existence was not known to many potential readers. But during the first three months, the average visitors to the Blog per day picked up to around 300 which further rose to around 500 during the first 6 months. By the time the Blog had completed one year, it had covered around 1500 songs. Over the years, the Blog coverage of songs as well as visitors have shown significant upward trends. As against the target of one song a day, we had many time posted 5-6 songs per day. As of now, the Blog has clocked over 13 million visitors with nearly 15800 songs covered which are spread over 4300 films. Also, the Blog has over 1200 Hindi films for which all the songs in the films have been covered. These are remarkable achievements.

Me: Do you feel that the purpose for which the Blog was created has been achieved to your satisfaction?

Atul ji: I would say without any hesitation that the Blog has achieved much more than what I had intended at the time it was created. Apart from coverage in terms of the number of songs and the films, the Blog has become fairly an authentic reference point for those who intend to study the Hindi film music. We have endeavor to cover artists who are unknown to the present generations by bringing them to the notice of the readers, their contributions to Hindi films in general and the Hindi film music in particular. Over a period of time, we have also widened the scope of the Blog by cover non-film Hindi songs. As you may aware, we have covered all the available songs sung by K L Saigal and Suraiya and all the avalable songs composed by Sajjad Hussain.

But the greatest achievement of the Blog which I had not thought of when it was created is that it has become a platform for collaborative efforts of like-minded Hindi film music lovers. The regular visitors of this Blog share certain unwritten common values. They are all knowledgeable, intelligent, mature and well settled individuals, whose love for the Hindi film music is deep and long lasting. The Blog has helped create a close-knit community of like-minded individuals, who share common interests, and they share each other’s joys and sorrows too.

Me: Just a wild thought occurred to me – 25000 songs by 25th Birth Anniversary of the Blog. Is it achievable?

Atul ji: Oh! It is too long a period to think about this target. But going by the present rate of coverage of the song per month, the target seems to be achievable.

Me: A last question. I have planned to publish our conversations as a part of your interview in a reputed newspaper or magazine. I hope I have your permission to do so.

Atul ji: I personally feel that there is no need to publish my interview in any newspaper or magazine. I speak through my Blog. I would, therefore, request you to just use my laptop and type the article based on our discussion with a song of your choice. I will get it uploaded on our Blog. This is quicker and timelier than on the newspaper/magazine. Besides, the Blog has readers across all continents.

Before I could respond to Atul ji, my wife woke me after the alarm set at 05:30 AM started ringing for my morning walk. I sat on my bed for some time before realising that I was infected by ‘Mungerilal Ke Haseen Sapne’.

Happy 12th birth anniversary of the Blog to Atul ji and his bandwagon.

On the occasion of the 12th birth anniversary of our musical Blog, I have chosen a picnic song, ‘dilon ke melon ka naam picnic’ from ‘Naadaan’ (1951). The song is sung by Geeta Dutt, Chitalkar and Chorus. The song is written by P L Santoshi which is set to music by Chic Chocolate who was the music arranger for C Ramchandra.

With this song, all the songs of ‘Naadaan’ (1951) have been covered in the Blog.

Enjoy this picnic song. Our Blog is like a ‘picnic point’ where musically like-minded persons meet for enjoyment.

Today’s song is from the 1974 movie ‘Hawas’. This movie is mostly known by its song “Teri Galiyon Mein Na Rakkhenge Kadam“. I remember that this song was frequently played on radio and loud speakers in those years. And I too associate this movie only with this song and had never tried to listen to the other songs of this movie. And yes, I never get to watch this movie until now.

So, when our dear Prakash ji had sent a song from this movie, I was eager to know about the other songs from this movie. So far, two songs (including the song mentioned above) from this movie have been posted on the blog.

‘Hawas’ is directed by Sawan Kumar for ‘Mercury Productions’. He was also the producer, storywriter and the lyricist of this movie. The star cast includes Anil Dhawan, Neetu Singh, Bindu, Vidya Sinha, Shiv Kumar, Fariyal, Pradeep Kumar, Randhawa and Mehmood. Supported by Pichoo Kapoor, Ashok Khanna, Randhir, Asit Sen, Shera, Basant, Neelam, Nelu, Sharmilee, Jugnu, and Coca-cola. Rekha and Vinod Mehra made friendly appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie is written by Sawan Kumar while the screenplay was written by Bimal Dutt. Dialogues were written by Ameen Sayani and editing of this movie was done by YG Chouhan. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.06.1974 with ‘restricted viewing’ certificate.

This movie has five songs sung by Asha Bhonsle (four songs) and Mohd Rafi (one solo song).  Lyrics for all the five songs are written by Sawan Kumar and music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Today, 8th July is the sixty-second birth anniversary of actress Neetu Singh (born on 08th July, 1958). On this occasion here is a song from this movie picturized on her. She is lip-syncing Asha Bhonsle’s voice on the screen and many other female artists and Anil Dhawan can be seen in the picturization of this song.

I had never listened to this song earlier. It’s lovely song and grows upon if we listen to it more and more.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

कल रात उस ने ए

कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ
कल रात उस ने
कभी इस करवट अ अ अ अ अ अ
कभी उस करवट अ अ अ
दीवाना रहा
कभी तन से लिपट
कभी मन से लिपटता
हाँ कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ आ
कल रात उस ने

बड़ा दीवाना है
वो तो प्रेम के राग सुनाये
बड़ा दीवाना है
वो तो प्रेम के राग सुनाये
मोरी कोरी चुनर
मोहे लगता है डर
कहीं मैली ना हो जाए
मोहे पास बुलाये
मैं ना जाऊं खुद आये
उसे लाज ना आये
मोहे अंग लगाए
फिर सारे दीप बुझाए
डरके बोली
ओ हमजोली
कल का वादा
बिलकुल पक्का
वो मुस्कुराता रहा
कभी ऐसे पलट अ अ अ अ अ अ
कभी वैसे पलट अ अ अ
दीवाना रहा
कभी तन से लिपट
कभी मन से लिपटता
हाँ कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ आ
कल रात उस ने

क्या किया

बड़ा नटखट है वो
बन गया रे कृष्ण कन्हाई
बड़ा नटखट है वो
बन गया रे कृष्ण कन्हाई
मैं जमुना में
नहाने गयी
और उस ने चाल चलाई
मेरी साड़ी चुराई
मेरी अंगियां चुराई
मैं पैय्यां पड़ी
मैंने बिनती करी
नहीं माना रे राम दुहाई
बोला राधा
संगम होगा
मैं क्या कहती
वादा जो था
मैं शर्माती रही
कभी ऐसे सिमट अ अ अ अ अ अ
कभी वैसे सिमट अ अ अ
दीवाना रहा
कभी तन से लिपट
कभी मन से लिपटता
हाँ कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ आ
कल रात उस ने

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 16

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah yes, this one too. This iconic and popular song from the 1969 film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, reappeared in a shorter version in the 1972 film ‘Baazigar’. Albeit the use of this song is somewhat casual, and does not seem to fulfill any purpose, symbolic or otherwise. Seems like a time filler, as one goes through the initial part of the film.

The original from the film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ is a quite a well picturized song, with the reality of the situation moving into a surreal dream where the real village people performing the song are replaced by the hero and heroine, in heroine’s mind. All the songs of this film became very popular, and did contribute significantly to the rising graph of Jeetendra as a hero.

Fast forward three years later. The film ‘Baazigar’ in 1972, was a potential launch vehicle for Roopesh Kumar (cousin brother of actress Mumtaz), as a hero. He had made his debut in 1965, in supporting roles, both as a comic villain and in character riles. This was the first, and likely the only film in which he appears in the role of a hero.

Roopesh’s real name was Abbas Farashahi. He was born in Bombay on 16th Jan, 1946 (okay, just a week back was his birth anniversary, would have been 74). His father, Ali Asgar Farashahi had a very good restaurant and bakery business.  However, being involved in dramatics in school and college, he was more interested to make a career in films. With some support from his cousin sister Mumtaz, he started working in small supporting roles. His first appearance is in the film ‘Tarzan and King Kong’ in 1965.

He appeared in over 120 films from 1965 through 1995. The list of his films do make an impressive reading. Here is a partial list of his films from the period till 1980 – ‘Sapno Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Aadmi aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ (1969), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971), ‘Andaaz’ (1971), ‘Raampur Ka Lakshman’ (1972), ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Prabhat’ (1973), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Insaaniyat’ (1974), ‘Zinda Dil’ (1975), ‘Nagin’ (1976), ‘Karm’ (1977), ‘Dildaar’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), ‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979), ‘The Great Gambler’ (1979), ‘Lok Parlok’ (1979), ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) etc.

Hmm. . . interesting to note that he also appeared in ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, the original film for the song being presented today.

He also produced and directed two films – ‘Hai Meri Jaan’ (1991) and ‘Meri Aan’ (1993).

Roopesh Kumar passed away quite unexpectedly, at a young age of 49. He was attending the Filmfare awards program of 1995. He suffered a severe heart attack while at the program, and passed away on way to the hospital.

The song presented today is picturized as a game being played at a picnic. This is a picnic with a difference. The only participants are the leading lady, Vijaylalitha and her pet animals – a horse named Chetak and a dog named Tommy. These are the screen names of these pets. Their real names, as per the credits are Joker and Johny respectively. The song is being played on a gramophone, and the game – well you can view it in the accompanying video. The song seems to have been edited, as it appears to end abruptly after playing one full stanza and getting into the start of the second stanza.

Ah yes, this 1972 film makes its debut on our blog today.

Overall, a very casual re-use in my opinion.

Song – Aa Mere Humjoli Aa, Khelen Aankh Micholi Aa  (Baazigar) (1972) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Chorus

Lyrics

ho o o ho o
ho o o ho o

[dialogue]

ho o o ho o
ho o o ho o

aa mere hamjoli aa
khele aankh micholi aa
galiyon me chaubaaron me
baaghon me bahaaron me
ho
main dhoondhoo tu chup ja

main aaun

main aaun
na na na

peepal ke oopar jaa baitha
chup se mera saathi
dhak se lekin dhadak gaya dil
gir gayi haath se laathi
o pakdaa gaya

main aaun
na na
main aaun
na na na
aaun
na
main aaun
aa jaa

“Naughty Boy”(1962) was produced and directed by Shakti Samanta. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Kalpana, Omprakash, Sundar, Madan Puri, Kanu Roy, Krishnkant, Kundan, Praveen Paul, Shivraj, Sulochana Cahtterji, Prretibala, Nand Kishore, Masud, Paachhi, Manjula, Samar Chatterji, Kamaldeep, etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised as a picnic song on Kishore Kumar and others. Towards the end of the song, we find them ending up on a beach/ sea shore.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other revelers in this picnic song.

The song initially has some gibberish words (or may be words in some other languages). I request our readers with keener ears to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

“Jawaan Mohabbat” (1971) was produced by Hardeep Chatrath and Krishan Kumar and directed by Bhappi Sonie for Roopanjali Production, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Asha Parekh, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Pran, Dhumal, Shashikala, Sarika, Rajendra Nath, Raj Mehra, Madhavi, Daisy Irani, Sujata Bakshi, Krishan Dhawan, Madhumati, Ashwani Kumar, Kumud Tripathi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth song from “Jawaan Mohabbat” (1971) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised as a “picnic” song on Asha Parekh and her sahelis. They are being watched from a distance by Shammi Kapoor and his trusted sidekick Rajendranath.

“Picnic” was made so popular by Hindi movies that it had become a fashionable pastime of people those days. I was a tiny school going kid those days and even we were taken on “picnic” by our school. 🙂 But I do not recall any “picnic” songs being sung on those occasions. We kids were more interested in playing and eating on those occasions. 🙂

So another new year is upon us. 2016 is gone and now we are into 2017. Celestially speaking, the earth has completed one full circle round the sun during this period. While the earthlings were busy indulging in their petty activities during this year, the earth covered a distance of 970 millions km at a speed of 107000 kmph which is a speed of 30 km/second !

The last two weeks of December are usually relatively busy weeks for me. I say “relatively” only in the context of the rest of the year for me, which is reasonably relaxed. My generally lazy nature gets a thorough jolt and wake-up call, in these last two weeks.
