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.

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 …

Lyrics

Jaltey jaltey
Ho gayi gham ki raat
Ho gayi gham ki raat
Khatam hua din jaltey jaltey
Ab to meri naakaam ummeedon
Ab to meri naakaam ummeedon
Pal do pal ka saath

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

Khatam hua din
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

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
Aavishkaar Basu Bhattacharya Kapil Kumar, Gyandev Agnihotri Kanu Roy 26.09.1973
Daagh Yash Chopra Sahir Ludhianvi Laxmikant-Pyarelal 30.03.1973
Raajaa Raani Sachin Bhowmick Anand Bakshi R.D. Burman 15.01.1973

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. Sharma (new discovery) and many others.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Dave.

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 aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor

na kisi ko taras hi aaya

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 ??

likhey ek kahaani aur
phir aankh se aansoo barse
phir chhaayi ghataa ghanghor

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 22
————————————————————————————–

The month of february 2012 was a “normal” month by the standard of the blog those days. A typical day of that month saw 6, 7, or 8 songs getting covered in the blog.

23 February 2012 was very much a “normal” day for the blog in the sense that seven songs from seven different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details :-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5509 Mar gaye ham jeete jee maalik tere sansaar mein Shabaab(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
5510 Mere lalla ko sulaayegi nindiya Suhaagan(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
5511 Saagar pe aaj maujon ka raaj Rangoli(1962) Movie YIPPEED by now

5515 Laayi kahaan hai zindagi Taxi Taxie(1977) 3 songs covered out of 5 by now

One can notice that five movies (out of seven) whose songs were represented on the blog ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only two movies that are yet to be YIPPEED and therefore eligible for the Blog ten year challenge today on 23 February 2022.

“Nayi Raahein”(1959) was one of the movies that are yet to be YIPPEED. This movie was produced by Devendra Goel and directed by Brij Sadanah for Goel Cine Corporation, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Ashok Kumar, Anoop Kumar, Nazir Hussain,Shobha Khote,Madan Puri, S.K.Prem, Jaswant, Radha Kishan etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs have already been covered. Here are their details:-

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 19
————————————————————————————–

February 2012 was a month that saw as many as 178 songs getting covered in the blog, at an average of over 6 songs a day. There were several days when even 8 and nine songs were covered in one day !

The date of 15 February 2012 was a sedate day in comparison. Only four songs were discussed on this date. Here are their details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5458 Ek teer chala dil pe laga Mahal(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5449 Wo dekhen to unki inaayat Funtoosh(1956) Movie YIPPEED by now
5460 Ye kya jagah hai doston Umrao Jaan(1981) 7 songs covered out of 9
5461 Yoon to milney ko ham miley hain bahut Faasle(1985) 3 songs covered out of 10

One can observe that two out of four movies whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago are already YIPPEED. That leaves us with only two movies whose songs can still be discussed today, ten years later, as part of “Blog Ten Year Challenge”.

“Umrao Jaan”(1981) is one such movie. This movie, a musical extravaganza, had as many as nine sons in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Umrao Jaan”(1981) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shahariar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam. The song is picturised on Rekha, with Rita Rani Kaul, Farooque Shaikh and Umme Farwa also seen in the picturisation.

It is a very short song, less that two minutes long. The audio and video versions contain one extra stanza not available in the other version.

Lyrics of the song have been provided by Prakashchandra. The lyrics combine all the stanzas that are available either in the audio or in the video version.

This article is the 16800th post in the blog.

Blog Day :

4942 Post No. : 16800

Centuries – pivotal events. And always welcome. Give us a quantized measure of manageable progress.  Like one part of a lo..ong project accomplished. Or like completing one cycle of an endless process. Would we like to compare with the earth going around the sun? Maybe not a good idea. A century taking 365 days to complete. Or maybe compare to Victor Trumper and Don Bradman and Majid Khan – getting a century in the very first session of a test match. Ah but that maybe going too fast for this crowded bandwagon of Atulites.

Well then maybe the Phileas Fogg of the Victorian Britain, who put the girdle around the world in eighty days. Hmm. . . that could be a close measure. Although I assure you that this bandwagon is trotting along somewhat faster than him, and his trusted valet – Passepartout. Now this name always intrigued me till the time I discovered that this faithful valet was a Frenchman. And that explained a lot that happened in the saga of the precise Mr. Fogg.

So let’s see. We are now at the 168th century mark on this trip into the dreamland of music. If he did a Fogg-Song-A-Day on his trip, one girdle of the earth would account for 80 songs. And if he did this 168 times, he would have enjoyed the flavor of 13,440 editions of Hindi film music. So yes, we are doing better than him on that count.

[Ah yes, you may catch the misdirection in my drift, but then this is just a tongue in cheek opening of the one hundred and sixty eighth hundred milestone post of remarkable blog.]

Remarkable is just one word, and it is incapable of spanning the entire gamut of emotions that arise when I begin to describe this blog. And its accomplishments. And yes, we have a gargantuan accomplishment, as recent as three days ago, that we must also talk about. And we will.

So yes, remarkable is an inadequate qualifier. Into the fourteenth year now, and few months away from completing it. And no bureaucratic or corporate infrastructure to drive it. And appearing on a day to day basis, just like the sun rising in the east every day. The drive of THE one person, and the “साथी हाथ बढ़ाना. . .” pull and push of the entire bandwagon. In my entire personal experience of all the young years I have, I have never seen or even heard someone mention something similar; of the classic real life manifestation of the celebrated poetic idiom of Majrooh Sb – “. . . लोग साथ आते गए, और कारवां बनता गया”.

Beyond all the kudos and accolades and all the bouquets and all the doffed headgear that we can shout out with joy, we must also acknowledge and honor – that element of destiny that actually drives all the human endeavors. Like the Marco of ‘Guide’ says to Raju, when he discovers the lost caves of ancient history, replete with sculpted beauties – a lifetime of aspirations realized. He says, “. . . लेकिन तुम जानते हो राजू, आज तक कोई पारखी यहाँ तक क्यों नहीं आया? क्योंकि ये काम मेरी किस्मत में लिखा था।” [“But do you know Raju, why no connoisseur has ever reached here? Because this discovery was destined to be my endeavor.”]

Yes, the endeavors of the chosen, ordained by destiny. For other than that, there is no plausible explanation as to why it happens so in the affairs of men and in the flow of history. Accomplishments, discoveries, explorations, deeds of triumph – history always has a name written on them. It is never that hordes of men discovered America, or that a whole school of mathematicians got together to propose the methods of Calculus. History always has a name – a singular busybody to associate with high tides of achievements.

This blog, by any measure, is a feat of incalculable perseverance, and defined merit that has endured years and years of continuity. And that is yet an understatement, as for the subject matter that this blog deals with – the unending ocean of music that is the Hindi film song. And a project that has now assumed a life of its own. At the 16,800 mark today, we are just about at the one third mark, considering just the first five decades of Hindi cinema. And not even at one fifth, if the scale expands to cover almost the entire ten decades of film music – as the time passes. Only an insightful vision can fathom the purpose, the purposefulness, and the lasting dedication that has brought this humble beginning that started with saying – “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” to that zenith of accomplishment where the burden of the group song now is

Geeton Se Dosti Hai, Music Se Yaari Hai
Aise Maze Ki Pyaare Zindagi Hamaari Hai

A Labor of Love – so rightly printed in the banner of our home page. There is no other way accomplishments of such enormous magnitude are made. Decidedly yes, one song at a time. But the cumulative effect of the persistent doggedness and the dedicated perseverance brings us here to this pinnacle of a looming mountain range ahead.

There is so much about this blog that boggles the mind that I would like to propose we stop calling this Atul-Song-a-Day Blog and start calling it Atul-Song-a-Day Boggler. Because that is what happens with this bandwagon – a new mind boggling something or the other week-in and week-out. Everything is so colossal and titanic about this blog that it is now beyond even creating wonder in the minds of regulars.

And yet, we have events on the blog that shake us all. Three days ago, on 25th Jan, the visitor clock on our home paged logged in the 15 Millionth visit. Atul ji had done some basic averaging to announce that we are clocking more than three thousand visitors per day, which in turn translates to two visitors hitting this blog every minute. Quite a crazy number considering that this blog deals with a topic that one would consider as not being the choice of majority of the social media users. Hindi film song, and that too pre 1980s. And goodness, non digital music – who would prefer that in this age. But of course, the numbers belie expectations. 3000+ hits a day – I am sure very few non-commercial, non-social-media web sites can boast of such a massive following.

So, 168th century. And 15 million visitors. Celebrations are called for and have been announced. But of the date today, there is one more celebration that we must honor and observe. Suman Kalyanpur, an eminent and essential Diva of Hindi cinema, turns 85 today.

The profiles and biographies and discographies – all have been touched upon and presented in numerous posts on this blog itself. I will not attempt to present those details again. I will talk about Suman Kalyanpur, as I see her in my mind, an artist, an accomplished singer who has made her mark on the history of Indian cinema, in face of many odds and struggles.

The singular expression that comes to mind when her name is mentioned – a quiet and humble persona that has led a blemish-less career as a playback singer, a career that has lasted almost four decades of active performance. The tinsel town that is India’s film industry, is a hard and difficult place to survive. Much has been said about the circumstances that have been faced by many a talented and gifted artists who did not get their seat on the stage of first tier performers. And it is surprising to see many a name that did not make it.

But surely, here is a name that was not a first preference of the top line banners and music directors. Despite that, to make a mark and leave behind memories of songs that will never be forgotten – that is surely an accomplishment. A major part of her repertoire belongs to the B and C grade cinema. And when one listens to those obscure and forgotten sounds and melodies, one is surely inclined to wonder.

Today, I present an obscure and unheard melody – a song from an obscure film from 1963 – ‘Royal Mail’. One of the many variations of the theme of Zorro that have kept appearing regularly in Indian cinema. For a long time, this film was unavailable, until recently, when the video of this appeared online. Although the film is available now, but all the songs of this film are not. Especially this song, a solo rendition by Suman Kalyanpur – I have not been able to locate it online, and so I have uploaded it from my collection.

Way back in 2014, I had uploaded one song of this film, at the request of a reader of another blog. That song is “Chali Jaaye Re Jeevan Ki Gaadi”. The lead pair in this film are somewhat unknown names – Mahesh Kumar and Ambika. The above mentioned song was picturised on this lead pair. And today’s song also features the lead pair. Mahesh Kumar is present in the clip, but only Ambika is lip syncing the song. The dialogues leading into the song indicate the situation. The Rajkumari (Ambika) was in some trouble, and a masked vigilante (Mahesh Kumar) saves her. This masked person is known in the land as Royal Mail, and is a friend of the poor and the oppressed, and a foe of the oppressors. And when he asks permission to leave, Rajkumari breaks into this song, expressing her gratitude and requesting the masked masquerader to stay and accept her love.

The words are from the pen of Indeevar, and the music is by Avinash Vyas. An unheard and lovely song that I post today, to honor Suman ji on her 85th birthday. I wish her well, I wish her good health and comfort and I wish her many more such celebrations to follow.

So, we have had centuries today, we have had millions, and we also have an important birthday celebration. 28th Jan, 2022 – a red letter day of sorts.

I wish Atul ji, and the rest of the gang of bandwagoneers many more centuries up ahead. That the drums may keep rolling and the band keeps on playing – all the wonderful music that we love.

I would like to close this post with some lines remembered from the very first song posted by Atul ji, four thousand nine hundred and forty one days ago –

ab aage jo bhi ho anjaam, dekha jaayega
khuda tarash liya, aur bandagi kar li

Happy listening.


Song – Zindagi Dene Wale Dil To Mera Leta Jaa  (Royal Mail) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

dil ki aankhon se tujhko dekha
hum ne pehchaan liya
tere dil ki pooja mein
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
hum ne tujhe apna maan liya
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

phool sa dil seena parbat sa
tujh sa koi dildaar kahaan
tere iraade rok sakey jo
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
aisi hai deewaar kahaan
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

sab kuchh de kar kuchh na liya
tu kaisa dene waala hai
tera shukriya jaane waale
kaisa jaadu daala hai
kaisa jaadu daala hai
zindagi dene waale
dil to mera leta ja
pyaar tu de ke na de
yaad to apni deta ja
zindagi dene waale

ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

दिल की आँखों से तुझको देखा
हमने पहचान लिया
तेरे दिल की पूजा में
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
हमने तुझे अपना मान लिया
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

फूल सा दिल सीना परबत सा
तुझ सा कूई दिलदार कहाँ
तेरे इरादे रोक सके जो
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ऐसी है दीवार कहाँ
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

सब कुछ दे कर कुछ ना लिया
तू कैसा देने वाला है
तेरा शुक्रिया जाने वाले
कैसा जादू डाला है
कैसा जादू डाला है
ज़िंदगी देने वाले
दिल तो मेरा लेता जा
प्यार तू दे के ना दे
याद तो अपनी देता जा
ज़िंदगी देने वाले

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.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
raahon se meri kaante chun le
dar pe khade hain sar ko jhukaaye
itni si araj hamaari ee
daata sun le, maula sun le
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le

raat to kaali hai
din bhi andhera hai
raat to kaali hai
din bhi andhera hai
apni palkon ki

jeevan ki dori ko tu thhaamke rakhna
haathon mein tere hi
hai duniya hamaari ee
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le

galtiyaan jo hamne ki
wo maaf kar dena
mann mein sachchaayi ka aa
vishwaas bhar dena
raatein gujarti hain
aankhon hi aankhon mein
kuchh phool dhoondhte hain
kaanton se bhari shaakhon mein
saanson ki dharti pe hamri paap ka parbat bhaari ee
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
daata sun le
maula sun le ae
maula aaa sun le
daata aaa sun le ae
maula aaaa sun le ae ae

It can be seen from the table of 1987 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 21 songs in 12 movies released in 1987. It is the lowest number of songs sung in a year by her after she made her mark in HFM in 1949.

1 song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1987 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 20 songs from movies of 1987 that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 1 movie of 1987 (“Diljala”) has been covered in the blog. So 20 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 11 movies of 1987 are still available for discussion in the blog.

Alphabetically “Aag hi Aag”(1987) is the first movie of 1987 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aag Hi Aag”(1987) was produced by Pahlaj Nihalani and directed by Shibu Mitra for Vishaldeep International combines, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Moushumi Chatterji,Neelam (Kothari), Richa Sharma(W/o Sanjay Dutt), Shakti Kapoor, Danny Denzongpa ,Mac Mohan, Tej Sapru, Om Shivpuri, Geeta Siddharth, Satish Kaul, Jagadish Raj, Pinchoo Kapoor, Yunus Parvez, Akela, Vinod, Chachi, Master Vishal Nihalani, Master Chirag Nihalani,Aniruddh Agarwal etc in it. The movie Introduced Chunky Panday. Vinod Mehra and Gulshan Grover made friendly appearances in the movie.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these seven songs were multiple version solo song in three parts, sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Audio of the song offeres us longer versions of the song. Video versions of the song are only partial. The video tells us that the song is picturised on Mausami Chatterjee. Dharmendra, Richa Sharma Dutt, Om Shivpuri, Shatrughan Sinha, Geeta Siddharth, Chunky Pandey, Neelam Kothari are also seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Since this song has three versions, it counts as three Lata Mangeshkar songs. So three songs out of 21 songs sung by her in movies of 1987 get covered in one post. Only one Lata Mangeshkar song of 1987 was available in the blog till now. With this post, the number quadruples. The year 1987 now has 4 songs out of 21 Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1987.

With this song, “Aag Hi Aag”(1987) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day:

4698 Post No. : 16390

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 6
———————————–
23May – 29May, 2011

The seven days in May 2011, from 23rd to 29th. I am sure the world was extremely busy, as it always is, and there would be no dearth of info about what the then current trends and news were. Seems like this week was kind of low key and ordinary in terms of world events. But let us not go there. 🙂

Let us take on the story of that week, on our blog. Let us do the numbers first, and then I will take the readers through some very interesting details about the films that featured during that week.

It was kind of a slow week, by the then current standards. We had two dot days and just 21 posts. A super number comparing to what we are going through at current times. But with the then norm of 40+ posts in a normal week, this week was definitely slow. An average of 3 posts per day, or 4 posts in case we discount the dot days.

20 films got showcased that week, which means that in 21 posts, there is only one case of a film appearing twice. So 20 films and 21 posts, with the 1977 film ‘Aakhiri Sajda’ contributing two songs. Of the 20 films, no less than 9 were debut songs – films making their first appearance on the blog. The films making their debut that week are

Kaarwaan e Hayaat (1935)
Wahaan (1937)
Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani (1946)
Pagle (1950)
Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne (1964)
Baawarchi (1972)
Sankalp (1974)
Faaslaa (1974)
Aakhri Sajdaa (197)7

As far has completion report is concerned, we had one film celebrate its entry into the Yippeee club. The 1957 film ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ completed its list of songs contributed to the blog.

Also, in the 21 posts, total of 23 songs were included. This happens with we have a multi version song, and both (or all) versions of the song are accommodated in the same post. In this week, we had two posts that had 2 songs each, making a total of 23.

In terms of the decades covered, the data is as follows,

1930s   4
1940s   6
1950s   4
1960s   1
1970s   6

Yes, me too, am surprised to see just one film appearing for 1960s. But well, it is what it is.

No milestones got breached this week. In the previous week on 17th May, the blog had celebrated its 3900th song. So this week remained quiet uneventful on the milestones front.

Here is the week’s data in table form.

In one of he earlier episodes of this series, I have introduce the idea of ‘Ut’ songs, or possibly untraceable songs. Let us review the status and implications of this idea, for this week’s posts.

On 23rd May 2011, the first film in order of posting is ‘Shama’ of 1946. As I check the status of the songs of this film, it has total of 10 songs listed. 8 of these 10 are already on our blog. However, 1 song can be termed as untraceable. The film is available in public domain. The song at serial no. 9 – “Wo Chal Diye Phir Aag Kaleje Mein Laga Kar” was not released on gramophone record, and neither it is contained in the film that is available. That leaves one more song available for posting, after which was will be in a position to declare this film conditionally Yippeee’d.

The films ‘Wahaan’ of 1937 and ‘Faasla’ of 1974, both made their debut on 23rd May 2011. And have never been heard of again. Their tally stands at 1 song, even after a passage of one decade. Then we have ‘Sankalp’ from 1974, which has since been Yippeee’d. And the film ‘Baawarchi’ from 1972 – after accounting for the song posted earlier today, the film’s tally is now at 5 out of a total of 6 song, with just one more song remaining for the film to be declared as Yippeee’d.

The first film in the order of posting, on 24th May 2011 is ‘Dhoop Chhaon’ from 1935. This film is just one shy of reaching the Yippeee status. The last remaining song is available in public domain – “Aaj Mero Ghar Mohan Aayo”, sung by KC Dey. The second film, ‘Hatim Tai’ of 1956 has 3 songs more to be posted, and all are available. The fourth film that day – ‘Aakhiri Sajda’, had made its debut that day, and it has since been Yippeee’d.

Now we come to an interesting and difficult film to discuss – ‘Paakeezah’ of 1971. Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Of these, 6 are full songs in their individual capacity. All these songs are composed by music director Ghulam Mohammed. The remaining three songs, composed by Naushad Sb, are actually thumris that appear in the film as background songs. And they do not appear fully. The problem we face is that actually in the film there are many more of these background thumris. On the blog Nahm ji has already posted one such unlisted thumri – “Dekh To Dil Ke Jaan Se Uthhta Hai“. Checking on the internet, there are articles available that list many thumris, all of which are partially played in the film, in background. A good article is “The Lost Thumris of Paakeezah“.

There is another interesting aspect to this film. It is now known that actually, many more songs were recorded than are present in the film. In fact, the erstwhile HMV company has also released another LP titled ‘Paakeezah Rang Barang’ in 1977, which contains 9 additional songs, all composed by Ghulam Mohammed, all recorded for the film, and later were not included in the film. It has many interesting tracks including the female solo version of the song “Chalo Dildar Chalo” in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. None of these have as yet made their appearance on the blog.

If we consider all the above, then the total songs that were recorded for ‘Paakezah’ is more than 20. It is going to be a very interesting follow up on how to handle this film, moving forward. Decidedly, this film has not yet been Yippeee’s in the true sense.

Also on 24th May 2011, the film ‘Aakhiri Sajda’ made its debut. This is technically the last film for which music director Sajjad Husain has composed the music. The five songs of this film were posted in quick succession between 24th May and 9th June. In just about two weeks, this film got Yippeee’d. I need to check whether this is a record of some sort.

25th May 2011 is an interesting day in blog history. On this day, four films were featured. Three of these films made their debut and one film got Yippeee’d. The first film listed on this day is ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ (1935), which is followed by three films of actor director V Shantaram viz.’Dr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani’ (1948), ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957), and ‘Geet Gaya Patharon Ne’ (1964). Of these, ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ was Yippeee’d that day, and the other three made their debut.  For the three films pending, all songs are available. And possibly for ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ we may have more than the 10 songs listed in GK, after the film itself has been discovered and made available in public domain.

After a dot day on 26th May 2011, 5 songs are posted on 27th May. Of the five films that are featured that day, ‘Pagle’ (1950) made its debut. Further, we have an interesting situation for two films – ‘Bhakt Surdas’ (1942) and ‘Narsinh Avtar’ (1949). Both have one song each that is not traceable, at least not yet. In fact, the film ‘Bhakt Surdas’ can already be declared conditionally Yippeee’d – all available songs (14 out of the listed 15) are now posted on the blog. There have been rumors abound for some years now that copy of this film has surfaced, and it might be available with a collector in Canada. This info has not been confirmed so far, and the film itself has not yet surfaced in public domain.

An interesting side note for the 1951 film ‘Afsaana’, already Yippeee’d. Three films by this title were released – in 1938, 1951 and 1966. The 1938 film ‘Madhur Milan’ has an alternate title ‘Afsaana’. No songs of this film are listed as available. The interesting thing is that there is one more film by the same title, that is listed in Geet Kosh, in the unreleased films category. It has a whopping 12 songs listed as recorded, and all are available in public domain. This film has not yet made debut on our blog.

Then we come to 28th May 2011. Three songs are posted. The film ‘Laila Majnu’ of 1953 is already Yippeee’d. The other two films are in the same situation – both films have one song that is untraceable in public domain. By the same yardstick, the 1938 film ‘Street Singer’ may be declared conditionally Yippeee’d – 12 of the 13 songs are already posted.

29th May 2011 is a dot day.

That completed the week’s posts.

A day late, maybe. I am using one pending song from the 1949 film ‘Uddhaar’ for today’s post. The film has a total of 9 songs, of which 4 are posted. Here is the fifth song of this film, in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. The song is penned by Narendra Sharma and the music is by Vasant Desai. I desist from giving more details about the film and the song here, as the article already has become quite long. Maybe in another later post of one of the songs of this film.

All in all, a very interesting week it has been. We have identified two films that can already qualify for conditional Yippeee status. And have raised a few interesting questions about the film ‘Paakeezah’.

Let us now get going with the song from ‘Udhhaar’. The lyrics for this song have been provided by Prakash ji.

Song – Rangeen Gagan Peeche Chhoota  (Uddhaar) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Narendra Sharma, MD – Vasant Desai

रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
अनुराग और अरमानों का
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
ओ साक़ी
राज हंसिनी का
ओ साक़ी
राज हंसिनी का
सुख सपनों से नाता टूटा
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा

बह गए अश्क़ रह गई आग
बह गए अश्क़ रह गई आग
शबनम से शोले उठे जाग
नाहक अपने ही हाथों से
हमने नसीब अपना लूटा
अनुराग और अरमानों का
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा

कच्ची टहनी और नई कली
कच्ची टहनी और नई कली
गुल हीं के हाथों गई छली
दिल नाज़ुक फूल के प्याले सा
दिल नाज़ुक फूल के प्याले सा
एक ठोकर लगते ही टूटा
अनुराग और अरमानों का
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
ओ साक़ी
राज हंसिनी का
सुख सपनों से नाता टूटा
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा

Blog Day :

Remembrance Day   —    Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal)

Today is the 23rd remembrance day of Laxmikant S. Kudalkar one half of the music composer duo fondly known as L-P.  They were the sole torch bearers by 1988, of the melodious music of the golden era of HFM.   Though RD Burman was still around, but doing very few films.  L-P it seems never took a breather, till the demise of  Laxmikant on 25.05.1998.  I personally don’t know of any instance where Pyarelal composed a film score alone.

Laxmikant–Pyarelal received won 7 awards and 15 nominations for best music direction in the Filmfare awards.

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

1965 Dosti
1968 Milan
1970 Jeene Ki Raah
1978 Amar Akbar Anthony
1979 Satyam Shivam Sundaram
1980 Sargam
1981 Karz

They have composed close to 3000 songs out of which 896 are posted.  So the tally is so close to 900 mark.   Today is actually Remembrance Day of Sunil Dutt also.  I could have easily found a song by L-P featuring Sunil Dutt to post, but I was reminded of this wonderful group song from ‘Tezaab’ in a video forward in the family group.

Belgaum city has been put under strict lock down for the extended weekend from Friday to Monday.  The video is maybe shot last year showing empty streets, markets and by-lanes of the city.  It was moving very fast, so I failed to recognise much of the blurred views. This song from ‘Tezaab’ 1988 was playing in the background, so I decided to do this song post.  I have always liked the song for the humming in the background, and night journey in the battered vehicle with a broken wind shield.  Chunky Pandey and his friends are singing this song.  While sad looking Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are trying to enjoy their antics.  Second stanza is filmed on these two with background singing by Alka Yagnik and Shabbir Kumar.  Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Chunky Pandey.

Peevesie’s Mom would have liked to post this as Chunky Pandey’s song, I suspect.  But I have it as a night song from ‘Tezaab’ by Nitin Mukesh.  That’s how I remembered it and had thought of including it in the ‘Chaandni Raatien’ series.  But since there is no moon visible here, nor it is mentioned in the song, so desisted.

The other day after reading Madhuri’s birthday post on 15th May, I remembered many songs.  Even started one post for a Madhuri song, but could not complete it.  That one is also a hit L-P score.  But for now, that song will have to wait.

For a five-minute song, this is having only 2 stanza’s.  So, I looked for audio version, thinking that it may have an extra stanza.  But there is no extra stanza in the audio version, which is slightly longer with repetition of mukhda.

So, let’s enjoy this hummable, slow, melodious, pensive, meaningful song, written by Javed Akhtar.

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

kuchh meri suno
kuchh apni kaho
ho paas to aise ea
chup na raho o
ham paas bhi hain
aur door bhi hain
azaad bhi hain
majboor bhi hain
kyun pyar ka mausam
beet gayaa
kyun ham se zamaana
jeet gayaa aa
har ghadi mera dil
gham ke ghere mein hai ea
zindagi door tak ab
andhere mein hai
andhere mein hai ea ea
andhere mein hai

ho so gayeen een

o saari manzilein en
so gayaa hai rastaa
so gaya ye jahaan (hmmmm)
so gaya aasmaan (hmmmm)
so gaya ye jahaan (hmmmm)
so gaya aasmaan (hmmmm)

Hindi Script Lyrics
(Provided by Sudhir)
————————————————————

हम्ममम म्ममममम
हम्ममम म्ममममम
हम्ममम म्ममममम
हम्ममम म्ममममम

सो गया ये जहां
सो गया आसमान
सो गया ये जहां
सो गया आसमान
सो गईं॰॰॰
हैं सारी मंज़िलें
सो गया है रस्ता
सो गया ये जहां (हम्ममम)
सो गया आसमान (हम्ममम)
सो गईं॰॰॰ (हम्ममम)
हैं सारी मंज़िलें (हम्ममम)
ओ सारी मंज़िलें (हम्ममम)
सो गया है रस्ता (हम्ममम)
सो गया ये जहां (हम्ममम)
सो गया आसमान (हम्ममम)

रात आई तो वो जिनके घर थे
वो घर को गए सो गए
रात आई तो हम जैसे
आवारा फिर निकले
राहों में और खो गए
इस गली उस गली
इस नगर उस नगर
जाएँ भी कहाँ
जाना चाहें अगर
हो ओ सो गईं॰॰॰ (हम्ममम)
हैं सारी मंज़िलें (हम्ममम)
ओ सारी मंज़िलें
सो गया है रस्ता
सो गया ये जहां
सो गया आसमान
सो गया ये जहां
सो गया आसमान

कुछ मेरी सुनो
कुछ अपनी कहो
हो पास तो ऐसे॰॰॰
चुप न रहो
हम पास भी हैं
और दूर भी हैं
आज़ाद भी हैं
मजबूर भी हैं
क्यूँ प्यार का मौसम
बीत गया
क्यूँ हमसे ज़माना
जीत गया
हर घड़ी मेरा दिल’
ग़म के घेरे में है
ज़िंदगी दूर तक अब
अंधेरे में है
अंधेरे में है॰॰॰
अंधेरे में है

हो सो गईं॰॰॰
हैं सारी मंज़िलें
ओ सारी मंज़िलें
सो गया है रस्ता
सो गया ये जहां (हम्ममम)
सो गया आसमान (हम्ममम)
सो गया ये जहां (हम्ममम)
सो गया आसमान (हम्ममम)

हम्ममम म्ममममम
हम्ममम म्ममममम
हम्ममम म्ममममम
हम्ममम म्ममममम
