28th Sept 2022 marks the first birthday of Lata Mangeshkar without her physical presence in this world. Due to old age and couple of hospitalizations at the fag end of her life, her passing away on that fateful day of 06th Feb 2022 was not really shocking so to say.

But then, an emptiness befell upon music lovers all over the world. It was as if a part of our lives was lost forever. It was a different kind of mourning; one of helplessness and the bare truth that such a soul would never be born again. And such is a gargantuan legacy of work left behind that one can only sit back and wonder how an individual could achieve so much in a single life. It is not about the span-life of her singing or the number of songs that she has sung, but of the utmost dedication, sincerity to her career and the love of the masses that she received.

Calling her the greatest singer ever would arguably be an understatement. Love for her voice knows no religion, caste, creed or man made international boundaries. For her voice touched the innermost recesses of human souls. The voice that she has left behind has amalgamated with the atmosphere and will continue to regale music lovers for generations to come.

Adjectives, honorific titles, awards are altogether too, a pale shadow compared to what she has achieved and left behind. Her work and career encompassed the entire gamut of technology from shellac records to the present cloud technology.

Blessed are we for breathing the same air, sharing an epoch and a planet with Lata Mangeshkar.

There have been many biographical posts, anecdotes, series etc. on Lata Mangeshkar on this blog. In fact, in the recently concluded long series concluded by Atul ji covers her entire singing career from first to her last song sung in HFM. Also, her wiki page is quite elaborate if one has to understand the entire spectrum of her life and career in acting, singing, composing, production etc.

There were two aspects that I wanted to include in this post, and I have to profusely apologize to readers that I could manage neither due to other priorities and paucity of time.

One was to put forth a table listing her very first one or two dozen songs irrespective of whether she sang for Hindi / Marathi or for herself / playback. There are many blogs, articles, interviews and information out there on the net containing these facts, but to have it on a well-prepared table with her songs in chronological order and then get it vetted by veterans in the field was what I was looking for.

The second was to present my interest and limited knowledge and on her association with various composers and singers. There is so much that I wish to keep on writing about her Hindi film songs. Her pronunciation of the word “hum” in the title song of ‘Barsaat’ (1949) and again the finest way she sings the word “chaar” in the duet with Shankar Dasgupta in ‘Girls’s School’ (1949) amazes me to no end. That she could so effortlessly empathize with the situation of the song on screen in her voice modulation in 1940’s itself speaks volumes as to where she was headed in her career.

Why she has a solitary song for Gyan Dutt? Why Kishore Kumar used her sparingly in his compositions? Will the solo song from the film ’26 January’ (1956) ever be heard by music lovers are some of the points that I wanted to touch upon. Let me see, how soon, I can put these thoughts on the blog.

Her association with the many composers, singers, lyricists, actors etc. can be discussed with no end. Naming a few will be a gross injustice to the many others that she sang for. I shall hence stop myself from even attempting to do so.

Coming to the song to be posted for today’s occasion and considering that most of her songs in the golden period have already been covered on the blog, I made a rather strange request to the editors to kindly offer me a good song for the occasion. I know there are many more songs yet to be covered, but then again due to time constraints, I thought, I will make this new request. 🙂

A sad, solo from late 40’s or early 50’s was what I requested for.

And guess what?

Sudhir ji promptly sent me a gem of a sad solo from 1949. My goodness! Of all the years, 1949, the year Lata Mangeshkar stamped herself as the undisputed queen of playback. Music lovers know the importance of the year 1949 and the abundant flow of melody in that particular year.

Thank you, Sudhir ji and Atul ji. I could not have asked for anything better.

So here is the gem from 1949 film ‘Rakhi’ in the mellifluous voice of one and only Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing her a very happy birthday, I am sure the heavens and the Gods are more blessed to have Hema Hardikar aka Lata Mangeshkar amongst their midst.

Song – O Rooth Jaane Waale, Mera Qasoor Kya Hai  (Rakhi) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Saarshaar Sailaani, MD – Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai
kyon pher leen nigaahen
kyon pher leen nigaahen
kyon mujhko gham diya hai
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

fariyaad kar rahi hai
sehmi hui jawaani
kisko sunaaun ae dil
dukh dard ki kahaani
apne nahin jab apne
gairon se kya gila hai
o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

beete huye dinon ki
baaton ko yaad kar ke
guzri hui suhaani
raaton ko yaad kar ke
main dil ko ro rahi hoon
dil mujhko ro raha hai
o rooth jaane waale
o rooth jaane waale
mera qasoor kya hai

din raat kha raha hai
gham teri berukhi ka
nazdeek aa raha hai
anjaam zindagi ka
tu hi bata ke aise
jeene mein kya maza hai. . .

ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है
क्यों फेर लीं निगाहें
क्यों फेर लीं निगाहें
क्यों मुझको ग़म दिया है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

फरियाद कर रही है
सहमी हुई जवानी
किसको सुनाऊँ ए दिल
दुख दर्द की कहानी
अपने नहीं जब अपने
ग़ैरों से क्या गिला है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

बीते हुये दिनों की
बातों को याद कर के
गुज़री हुई सुहानी
रातों को याद कर के
मैं दिल को रो रही हूँ
दिल मुझको रो रहा है
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
ओ रूठ जाने वाले
मेरा कसूर क्या है

दिन रात खा रहा है
ग़म तेरी बेरुखी का
नज़दीक आ रहा है
अञ्जाम ज़िंदगी का
तू ही बता के ऐसे
जीने में क्या मज़ा है॰ ॰ ॰

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 78
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 4 August 2012) saw as many as eight songs from eight different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6367 Wo thhi ham thhey ham thhe wo thhi Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now
6368 Jin raaton ki bhor nahin hai Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein (1964) Movie YIPPEED by now
6369 Tum bhi chalo ham bhi chalen chalti rahe zindagi Zameer (1975) Movie YIPPEED by now
6370 Na aaj thhaa na kal thha Pati Patni Aur Woh ( 1978) 4 songs coovered out of 5
6371 Khuda hi juda kare to kare Aap To Aise Na Thhey (1980) Movie YIPPEED by now
6372 Arre nazar lage na saathiyon Des Pardes (1978) Movie YIPPEED by now
6373 Jis ka koi nahin uska to khuda hai yaaron Laawaaris (1981) Movie YIPPEED by now
6374 Jeewan se na haar o jeene waale Door Ka Raahi (1971) 6 songs covered out of 9

One can notice that six movies (out of eight) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago on 4 august 2012 have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten YEar Challenge today on 4 August 2022.

We also notice that all the eight songs featured the voice of Kishore Kumar. That was to mark the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s birth anniversary which falls of this day. This gives us an idea how prolific this blog used to be ten years ago, when six and more songs used to get covered in the blog with ease.

“Door Ka Raahi”(1971) is one movie that is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today. This movie was produced and directed by Kishore Kumar. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Tanuja, Abhi Bhattacharya, Ganga, Amit Kumar, Bambi, Hiralal, Yograj, Iftikhar, Padma Khanna, Shivraj, Asit Sen, Keshto, Radheshyam, Gautam Mukherji, Ratan Gaurang, Abhay Shah,Baby Deepa aka Rajni Sharma, Kishore Kumar, Moni Chatterjee, Sameer Kumar etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Six songs from the movie have been covered so far.

Here is the seventh song from ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Though HFGK is silent about the lyricist, the record label mentions A Irshad as the lyricist. Music is composed by Kishore Kumar.

Only audio of the song is available. It is almost certain that the song was picturised on Kishore Kumar himself in case this song was picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

We take this opportunity to pay our tribute to Kishore Kumar (4 August 1929- 13 october 1987) on the occasion of his 93rd birth anniversary.

मुझे
खो जाने दो
दुनिया की
निगाहों से परे

जहां ना हूनह सके
कोई नज़र
मेरा निशां
कोई आवाज़ ना पहुंचे
कोई
आँसू ना बहे
किसी तिनके
किसी ज़र्रे
को ना हो
मेय गुमाँ

मेरी लाश पर
रख दे
कुदरत ही एक सफ़ेद कफन
रूह को मेरी नज़ारों में ही
खो जाने दो
दास्ताँ मेरी
हवाओं को ही
दोहराने दो

Blog Day :

Today 31st July we remember the ‘divine voice’ of Hindi Film Music Late Shri Mohd Rafi Sahab on his Remembrance Day and pay our tributes to him on this blog.

Mohd Rafi left this world on 31st July 1980. Forty-two years have passed since he left this world. But, for the music lovers, not a single day passes without his voice ‘singing’ around us …

On this blog there have been many passionate, heartfelt, lovable posts on Rafi Saab in the past and they will continue in the future too.

I am not going to write about Rafi Saab’s voice, his songs or his personality and the many incidences which have been known to us about his generosity and all.

I would like to pay my tributes today to Rafi Saab by presenting one of his songs which touched me very much. I had come across this song during the month of January this year when it was being played on ‘Vividh Bharati’. I can now guess that it must be around 14th January the ‘Remembrance Day’ of music director Chitragupt ji. This programme was dedicated to him. Since then, I had listened to this song many times. Not only the singing of this song, but the whole composition is ‘simply great’ in terms of its lyrics and music. Lyrics for this song are by Shailendra ji.

This song is from the Bhojpuri movie or rather the ‘first Bhojpuri movie’ ‘Ganga Maiyya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo-1962’.
So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

This movie made its’ debut on the blog on 23.04.2015 with its song ‘kaahe bansuriya bajaule re sudh bisraule’.
This post was presented by Shri. Sudhir jee and I would like to reproduce here what he has mentioned about this movie in his post.

This is the first Bhojpuri film that was made in India. An interesting anecdote behind its creation. At an film awards ceremony in late 1950s, the then President of India, Babu Rajendra Prasad, who hails from Bihar, spoke with Nazir Hussain, the renowned character actor, also from Bihar. The president queries why not make films in Bhojpuri language. In fact, Nazir Sb was already preparing a script for a Bhojpuri film, with this title. He promised the president that it will happen soon.
Nazir Husain discussed the script with Bimal Roy, but he did not express any great amount of interest in the project. A later chance meeting with Bishwanath Prasad, a businessman and a film distributor and exhibitor in Bihar, led to a more interested commitment, and the film was launched with financing from the businessman. The film was completed in 1962. A special screening was arranged for the President, before the public release. The film was released to public in 1963.

The title of the film refers to a tradition in Bihar that says, ‘Mother Ganga, I will offer you the auspicious yellow sari’. The word ‘piyari’ represent the yellow sari. The tradition is that people will pray to Mother Ganges, and place their wish to her, in their prayers. On the fulfilment of their wishes, they will make an offering the auspicious yellow sari, to Mother Ganges.

“Ganga Maiyya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo-1962” was directed by Kundan Kumar for ‘Nirmal Pictures’.
It had Kumkum, Aseem Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tiwari, Mishra, Helen, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan Sinha, Tun Tun, Mangala Prasad, T.N. Sinha, Keshav Rana, Amal Sen, Kesarbai, Mastram, Bhushan Tiwari, Daya Devi, Dubey, Kumari Padma and others.

This movie had six songs (including one multiple version song) written by Shailendra and composed to music by Chitragupt.

Lata Mangeshkar, Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Mangeshkar, and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and on screen it is played in the background when the heroine of the movie Kumkum is getting married. Also seen the picturisation of this song is Leela Mishra, Nazir Hussain, Aseem Kumar, and many other artistes.

This song sung by Rafi Sahab is the only song sung by him in this movie (as per the list of songs and singers mentioned for them in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

Let us now listen to this heart wrenching song sung by none other than Rafi Sahab.

(I would also like to given here a brief translation of this song mentioned on a You Tube link by a enthusiastic reader

Shut in a cage of gold, the bird’s heart is sad, the branch of the tree is broken, the nest is scattered, and the blue sky is lost forever. With tear filled eyes the mute bird, the beloved daughter of her mother, is going away to an unknown place. O my father these pearls of my tears I leave behind with you. Her friends kept shedding tears as the hunter took the bird away. My dear forget about me and let go off all the hopes of our meting again.

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 …

This date (6 july) ten years ago was 6 July 2012. That date saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

We can observe that three movies (out of six) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been Yippeee’d. That leaves us with three movies that are still eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today on 6 July 2022.

‘Pilpili Sahab’ (1954) is one of the eligible movies.

The movie has nine songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here is the sixth song from ‘Pilpili Sahab’ to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardul Kwatra.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

खुशी के सुर मिले तो

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.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Raaste Aur Manzil-1968’.

One song from this movie was posted on the blog more than six years ago on 21.12.2015. I had shared lyrics for that song ‘main bahot door bahot door’. Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

Ram Kadam (August 1916 – 19 February 1997) was a famous and prominent music director of Marathi movies. I love his compositions in Marathi movies. Incidentally I had been instrumental in introducing his three Hindi movies viz. ‘Sant Tulsidas-1972’, ‘Raaste Aur Manzil-1968’ and ‘Pinjara-1973’ wherein I had shared lyrics for songs posted on the blog.

I didn’t have any information about the movie ‘Raaste Aur Manzil’ at that time as I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV those days.
But now, armed with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) I am presenting another song from this movie and also details of the movie . This movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time and more details or videos of this movie seems to be unavailable.

“Raaste Aur Manzil-1968” was directed by C. Vishwanath for ‘Saira Productions, Bombay’. It had Naseer, Azra, Bharati, Janraj, Sabina, Sushma, Pratima Devi, Master Sachin, Sabnoor, Surendra Chutki, Girish, Kadam, Waghmare, Karandikar, Angre, Bal Krishna, Babu, Salim, Karnik, Yakub, Nawab, Moolchand Kapoor, Surendra Mota, Nazir Kashmiri and others.

“Raaste Aur Manzil” had five songs in it which were written by Ibrahim Faiz M.A.

Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

Here is the list of songs from this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Agar gham sataaye mera naam lena Not mentioned
02 Kaise keh doon ki mulaaqaat nahin hoti Krishna Kalle
03 Aaoonga main aaoonga Krishna Kalle
04 Main bahot door chalaa aaya hoon Mohd Rafi 21.12.2015
05 Khatm hua din jaltey jaltey … Mohd Rafi

HFGK doesn’t mention the singer’s name for the first song in the above list. Though, it does mention the name of Asha Bhonsle along with Mohd Rafi and Krishna Kalle, in the singer’s name for this movie in its foot-note for this movie-page.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and the video of this song is luckily available. (Thanks to up-loader of this song).

We can see an actor, whom I am unable to identify, shown in jail singing this song. This song is a sad song and I do not know in what context it happens in the movie. We can see others artists (as prisoners) in the picturisation of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to today’s song now which is a nice composition to listen to …

Song-Khatm hua din jaltey jaltey (Raaste Aur Manzil)(1968) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Ibrahim Faiz, MD-Ram Kadam

Jaltey jaltey
Ho gayi gham ki raat
Ho gayi gham ki raat
Khatam hua din jaltey jaltey
Ab to meri naakaam ummeedon

Gham ke sahaare din beete hain
Aas liye phir bhi jeete hain
Gham ke sahaare din beete hain
Aas liye phir bhi jeete hain
Khatam ho ab to

Khatam ho ab to
Dukh ki chinta
Khatam ho dukh ki baat
Khatam ho dukh ki baat
Khatam hua din

Mamta ka aadhaar kahaan hai
Mera paagal pyaar kahaan hai
Mamta ka aadhaar kahaan hai
Mera paagal pyaar kahaan hai
Ek kiran hai wo bhi komal
Ek kiran hai wo bhi komal
Kaun de apna saath
Kaun de apna saath
Khatam hua din
Jaltey jaltey
Ho gayi gham ki raat
Ho gayi gham ki raat

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Raaja Raani -1973#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1973’ movie ‘Raaja Raani’.

This is one of the movies released during ‘Rajesh Khanna era’ in Hindi movies.

I recall to have read that this movie was termed as un-successful or it was even considered as a ‘flop’ movie of its time. But times have changed now and considering various factors (economic) and the collections made by this movie then, this movie is now considered as a ‘hit’ or ‘successful’ movie of its time.

Here is what the Wikipedia page on Rajesh Khanna mentions about this movie now (in the section ‘acting career’ of Rajesh Khanna) –

“As per the review of Raja Rani written in 2014 by ‘The Hindu’ newspaper, the film did well at the box office and, taking into consideration the inflation as of 2014, the film would have grossed more than 100 crores. The attire worn by Khanna was a sleeveless shirt and trousers, thick leather belt, shoes without socks and a black cap.The Hindu review noted “On a lesser actor, the attire would have fallen flat, but Khanna, as a small time thief, carries it with characteristic élan.”

In 1973 Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore appeared together in the following movies (in alphabetical order):

Movie Title Director Lyricist/s Music Director Passed by Censor Board

Other than the above movies Rajesh Khanna appeared in ‘Namak Haraam’ with Rekha, then in a documentary made by BBC i.e. ‘Bombay Superstar’, and also did a guest appearance in a Telugu movie ‘Bangaru Babu’ (as mentioned on Wikipedia).

Sharmila Tagore appeared in ‘Aa Galey Lag Jaa’ with Shashi Kapoor in 1973 apart from than the three movies with Rajesh Khanna as mentioned above.

“Raaja Raani” was directed by Sachin Bhowmick. He was also the writer of this movie.

Sachin Bhowmick (17 July 1930– 12 April 2011) was mainly as a writer (story and screenplays) for many movies in Hindi. ‘Raaja Raani’ was the only movie where he had done the direction for a movie.

The producer of ‘Raaja Rani’ was Jagdish Kumar and it was presented by J. Omprakash.

‘Raaja Raani’ had Sharmila Tagore, Rajesh Khanna, Raj Mehra, Iftekhar, David, Suresh, Brahm Bharadwaj, Asit Sen, Altaaf, Naaz, Dulari, Praveen Pal, Ravikant, Madhup Sharma, Kanu Rai, Uma Dutt, Ratna, Ashok Saxena, Master Manoj, Master Chiku, Baby Subiya, Surender Shore, Indrani Mukherjee, V.K.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.01.1973.

This movie had seven songs all written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by R.D. Burman.
Here is the list of songs this movie had.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Phir aankh se aansoo barse Lata Mangeshkar
02 Haa… mere chehre ki taraf Lata Mangeshkar
03 Jaa re jaa maine tujhe Lata Mangeshkar
04 Main ek chor tu meri raani Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar 08.12.2017
05 Aasmaan pe chaandni ka Lata, Mukesh, Rajesh Khanna 21.10.2008
06 Naa tumse huyi naa hamse huyi Lata Mangeshkar
07 Jab andheraa hotaa hai Asha Bhonsle, Bhupendra, chorus 11.09.2009

(Two songs from this movie ‘Jab andheraa hotaa hai’ and ‘Main ek chor tu meri raani’ made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year 1973 and they stood at number ten and twenty-one respectively.).

We can see from the above table that three songs from this movie have so far been posted on the blog. The movie made its debut on 21.10.2008 on the blog.

The three songs were also the most well-known songs from this movie. The others songs were not that popular and are lesser known songs. But they play their role carrying the movie forward according to the demands of the story.

Today’s song is one such poignant song filmed on Sharmila Tagore. It is a background song in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. (We can also see one male and one female artist present in the picturisation of this song whom I am unable to identify.)

I have not yet watched this movie however today’s song (including others) and the following declaration in the voice of Rajesh Khanna, in the beginning of this movie, can give readers the idea of the story of this movie.

“This film is dedicated to those innocent victims of circumstances – The Fallens – who aspire and desire to rehabilitate themselves and become good citizens.”
More details about the story of this movie have been mentioned by Peevesie’s Mom ji in her post with the song ‘main ek chor tu meri raani’ posted on the blog on 08.12.2017.

Let us now listen to today’s song.

Song-Phir aankh se aansoo barse (Raja Rani)(1973)Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor
likhne waalon se keh do
likhey ek kahaani aur
phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

na kisi ko taras hi aaya
na kisi ko aai laaj
logon ne hanskar dekha phir
ek tamaasha aur
lo aasmaan mein kat gayi
lo aasmaan mein kat gayi
phir ek patang ki dor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

phir ik aangan ki chhaaon
ban gayi parbat ki dhoop
phir ik gangaa ki mauj ne
badlaa madiraa ka roop
phir ik panghat ki raani
phir ik panghat ki raani
chal di marghat ki ore
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur

kit jaaye ud kar panchhi
jiske na par naa ??
aur chaaron taraf shikaari
baithhe phailaaye jaal
is choron ki nagari mein
is choron ki nagari mein
har koyi roop ka chor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur
phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor
likhne waalon se kehdo
likhey ek kahaani aur
