Blog Day : 3474 Post No. : 13953

The film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ is an intense personal favorite, as are many of Vijay Anand’s films. This film is a very sensitive, rational and balanced view of the healthcare systems in our country, especially in the rural areas. Of course, the time frame is of 1960s (the film released in 1971). The medical profession and healthcare systems have seen unbelievable transformations, especially the brazen and vulgar commercialization of this profession, that was once considered a hallowed service of the people. But maybe more of that later.

I like this film, in all its aspects. I know when this film was released, there were many articles in magazines and newspapers, trying to find and point out technical and medical faults with the film’s many medical scenarios. It was like pointing out the defects in a mango, that one is no doubt enjoying, but still complaining that the skin of the mango is too thick or too thin. 🙂 My counter to this discussion was – please, hold on, this is a film, a dramatization of human situations. The director is trying to tell a story, about a very important profession in the society, attempting to exhibit certain ground realities, and also trying to suggest some approaches. It is not a treatise on anatomy or cardiology, that should be scientifically perfect, but does not tell a story.

In my humble opinion, all aspects of this film are very creditable – be it the storyline development, be it the dialogues and dialogue delivery, be it the performances by individual actors – no matter what is the time that character spends on the screen, be it the pace at which the tale progresses, be it the subtle and overt messages it intends to present, or be it the music and the songs – each one of them being a gem status song. I am sure the readers are familiar with the many songs of this film, and they will agree to this statement. Neeeraj, the poet, and Sachin Da (SD Burman) have collaborated to create and bring a set of such beautiful and meaningful songs. And when one tops that with Vijay Anand’s handling of the song picturization scenarios, it is like ‘सोने पे सुहागा’.

Let us take today’s song for example. This is the penultimate song of this film to be posted (and yes, we should be on the lookout for a Yippeee call for this film, very shortly 🙂 ). The story revolves around a small town, and the small hospital this town has. The senior doctor in this hospital (role played by Mahesh Kaul), who founded this hospital, is in the evening of his life. He is part paralyzed, and not fully capable to handle his duties as the Chief Medical Officer. His wife (role played by Paro), on the other hand, rules the hospital with an iron hand, and does not allow the inability of her husband to manage the setup, to be exposed to the outside world or to the regulatory authorities. Another senior doctor in the hospital is Dr Kothari (role played by Vijay Anand), who has given up his battle with the complexities of life, and is drowning himself in drink, in the anonymity of this small out of the place village. Into this scenario steps in Dr Anand (role played by Dev Anand). A recent graduate, he is fresh young mind with hallowed dreams of serving the poor people.

The situation for the song is that an elderly couple in the village (roles played by Sapru and Dulari), very hesitatingly and bashfully announce to the doctors at the hospital that they are on way to the first child in their lives. There is happiness and good news scenario, punctuated by the sad news that the child, when born, is not breathing. Dr Kothari, the gaynecologist, is drunk and out cold, not in a position to even wake up. Dr Anand saves the day, and brings the child back into the living world, by attempting to and cleaning his windpipe which was blocking the child’s breathing. It is a day of salvation and new life for this old couple. Of course, celebration has to follow.

So the family has a celebration at their home, and this song, a dance by Jaishree T, is part of that celebration. Dr Anand is present, along with other invitees from around the village. Also present is Nisha (role played by Mumtaz) a school teacher in the local school. Of course, the amorous developments have already taken place between the new young doctor and this pretty school teacher. It is a match made in heavens, as they say. OK, but the rest of the story at another time. 😉

As with everything else in this film, even this dance is such an exquisite piece of performance. As I said earlier, in the hands of a master director like Vijay Anand – it has to be so. The performance is nothing short of a full blown onslaught on the senses, that it does not leave anytime for the viewer to breathe. The pace of music is so fast. The lyrics and words are tumbling right on top of each other. Neeraj has knitted together the words that catch you trying to keep pace with understanding them while hearing the next line. Burman Da’s melody, no matter is delivered at Presto speed, and one has to be very alert to keep pace with the music, still comes out to be an exquisite song delivery.

And the performance by Jaishree T – probably the best I have seen from her. The choreographer, Hiralal, has done a real great job in conceptualizing this dance. You may watch it more than once to check – no movements are repeated, even if the lines are being repeated. The dance goes from one breathless set of movements to the next, without a respite. The three minutes and some seconds performance just leaves one breathless, trying to keep pace with the words, the melody, the dancers movements, the dancers expressions – everything so perfectly blended together into a swirl of a pleasurable whirlwind experience. Just watch when Jaishree T dances and moves to the line – ‘sheeshi hoon kewde ke paani’. Or for that matter, just pick any line, and each line is expressed through her movements so exquisitely.

The performance and the words of the song, also work to further develop, whatever it is that is developing between the young doctor and the pretty schoolteacher, for one can catch them exchanging furtive glances as the performance progresses.

A lovely song, a fantastic performance, that I for one, simply am not tired watching it again and again. View, and enjoy, this onslaught on the senses. Exquisite performance all around.

 

Song – Mera Saajan Phool Kamal Ka, Kali Main Raat Rani Ki  (Tere Mere Sapne) (1971) Singer – Asha Bhosler, Lyrics – Neeraj, MD – SD Burman

Lyrics

mera saajan
o mera saajan phool kamal ka
kali main raat rani ki
raat ki rani chameli ki khushboo
sheeshi hoon kewde ke paani
kali main raat rani ki
mera saajan phool kamal ka
kali main raat rani ki

meri najaakat
hai lakhnauwa
choodi hai meri ajmer ki
choli silaai maine
dilli mein jaa ke
saari hai pehni chander ki
meri najaakat
hai lakhnauwa
choodi hai meri ajmer ki
choli silaai maine
dilli mein jaa ke
saari hai pehni chander ki
ras ki pyaali phoolon ki daali
laali main joban jawaani
kali main raat rani ki
mera saajan phool kamal ka
kali main raat rani ki
mera saajan
mera saajan phool kamal ka
kali main raat rani ki

haaye
simmi jaisi raja
naak hamaari
saayera baanu jaisi chaal re
nakhre mere mumtaaj jaise
sadhna jaise mere baal re
simmi jaisi raja
naak hamaari
saayera baanu jaisi chaal re
nakhre mere mumtaaj jaise
sadhna jaise mere baal re
sone ki chidia
aafat ki pudia
gudia hoon main japaani
kali main raat rani ki
mera saajan
ho mera saajan phool kamal ka
kali main raat rani ki
raat ki rani chameli ki khushboo
sheeshi hoon kewde ke paani
kali main raat rani ki
mera saajan phool kamal ka
kali main raat rani ki

मेरा साजन
ओ मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की
रात की रानी चमेली की खुशबू
शीशी हूँ केवड़े के पानी
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की

मेरी नजाकत
है लक्खनन्व्वा
चूड़ी है मेरी अजमेर की
चोली सिलाई मैंने
दिल्ली में जा कर
साड़ी है पहनी चंदेर की
मेरी नजाकत
है लक्खनन्व्वा
चूड़ी है मेरी अजमेर की
चोली सिलाई मैंने
दिल्ली में जा कर
साड़ी है पहनी चंदेर की
रस की प्याली फूलों की डाली
लाली मैं जोबन जवानी
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन
मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की

हाए
सिम्मी जैसी राजा
नाक हमारी
सायेरा बानू जैसी चाल रे
नखरे मेरे ममताज़ जैसे
साधना जैसे मेरे बाल रे
सिम्मी जैसी राजा
नाक हमारी
सायेरा बानू जैसी चाल रे
नखरे मेरे ममताज़ जैसे
साधना जैसे मेरे बाल रे
सोने की चिड़िया
आफ़त की पुड़िया
गुड़िया हूँ मैं जापानी
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन
हो मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की
रात की रानी चमेली की खुशबू
शीशी हूँ केवड़े के पानी
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday, dear atul-song-a-day blog
Happy  birthday to you

🙂

Yes, it’s that special day of the year again. It’s our blog’s happy happy birthday. It was born on 19th July 2008, so today it completes 9 years. And we, wherever we are in the world, are definitely not going to let the occasion go by without celebration.  Maybe we don’t have cakes and candles, but we have enough blog handles. 🙂 (Ok, admittedly, that was a terrible one!).

Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 12
———————————————————————-

Atul ji has become a legend now 🙂 . Anybody disagrees? I dont think so. Who else has achieved what he has achieved – a mammoth task of collecting information about 10,000 songs and then writing/sharing the same with like-minded enthusiasts. A monumental work, unselfish to the core. What sacrifices he must have made, how much time he would have spent, what passion he must be having to carry on blogging relentlessly for almost 9 years!! You would get an idea of it when you go through one of his write-ups for the song “Kitne Bhi Tu Kar Le Sitam“. Forget about miserly people running such a blog, it is not a possibility at all. Even a person earning good amount of money would hesitate to do it. You will understand my statement in its full extent only if you read the above-mentioned write-up.

Missing Films of 1960s – 27

Gosh, returning to this series after almost eight months.

Atul ji tells us about his resolution to post at least one song per day that brings on board a new film, onto our blog. When I revisited this series to revive it, I suddenly realized that this series, just by the fact of what it is, is actually a series of songs that would serve the purpose of bringing new films on to the blog – which is one of the resolutions of Atul ji.

APNI IZZAT (1952) seems to be an obscure film as not much information about the story of the film is available on the internet.  Harishchandra Pictures under which the film was produced was not a big banner. Nanabhai Bhatt directed the film.  The star cast included Motilal and Munawwar Sultana in the lead role with Gope, Yakub, Agha, Yashodhara Katju, Sulochana Chatterjee, Raj Mehra, David etc in the supporting roles. The impressive star cast indicates that it was not a ‘B’ grade movie.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 27

‘फ’

“फुर्र से उड़ जाती थी बुलबुल”

Although he lacked the finesse and comeliness of Shammi Kapoor, yet Jeetendra did acquire the epithet of ‘Jumping Jack’ of Hindi cinema. The film was ‘Farz’ from 1967. White shoes till then, were typically a trademark of either Rajkumar, or of the villain bosses like NK Ansari etc. In ‘Farz’, Jeetendra donned these white shoes for the song “Mast Bahaaron Ka Main Aashiq”. The image captured the imagination and clicked with the audiences. And then of course, followed a string of films with songs by Jeetendra presented with the same vigor and similar mannerisms. The ‘Jumping Jack’ epithet quite stuck on now.
