The Golden era of HFM was well and truly over after 1980s, with Disco “music” sounding the death knell of HFM as we knew till then. In these “music”, lyrics were all but dispensed with.

HFM continued to have a few nice songs even during the “disco” era. There were still some artists who refused to compromise with quality and refused to stoop to the new low that was set as the new standards of HFM post 1980.

“Saagar”(1985) was one such movie whose music felt like a breath of fresh air during that era. This movie had come from the stables of a well known and well respected production house, one that had given us “Sholay”(1975).

“Saagar”(1985) was Produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Dimple Kapadia, Saeed Jaffrey, Shafi Inamdaar, Nadira, A K Hangal, Madhur Jaffrey, Satish Kaushik, Goga Kapoor, Kiran Vairale, Lilliput, Shobha Khote, Sudhir Pandey, Sharat Saxena, Mushtaq Merchant, Jairaj etc in it.

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

Here is the fourth song from “Saagar”(1985) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Jawed Akhtar, who wrote the script of “Sholay”(1975) alongwith Salim Khan as Salim Jawed, had turned a lyricist by then. “Saagar”(1975) was one of the first (if not the first) movies where he penned lyrics.

R D Burman composed the music.

The song is picturised as a club song where Rishi Kapoor, holding a guitar, is seen lip syncing this song. The song is addressed to his long separated flame (played by Dimple Kapadia). Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia had last actded together in “Bobby”(1973) which was the launch vehcle for Rishi Kapoor as well as Dimple Kapadia. while Rishi Kapoor successfully got launched and established, Dimple Kapadia, in a surprise movie married Rajesh Khanna and vanished from films. It was more than one decade later that she was persuaded to make comeback to movies. She made quite a stunning comback in movie like “Aitbaar”(1985) and “Saagar”(1985).

Music of these movies were quie stunning and played stellar roles in the box office success of these movies.

The song under discussion is one such song. It remains a timeless classic to this day.


Song-Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

ho chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

arre tu kya jaane teri khaatir
kitna hai betaab ye dil
tu kya jaane dekh rahaa hai
kaise kaise khwaab ye dil
dil kehtaa hai tu hai yahaan
to jaataa lamhaa thham jaaye
waqt ka dariyaa behte behte
is manzar mein jam jaaye
toone deewaanaa dil ko banaayaa
is dil par ilzaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

ho aaj mai tujhase door sahi
aur tu mujhse anjaan sahi
tera saath nahin paaun to
khair tera aramaan sahi

lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalalala
lalalalalaa
laalaalaa

ho ye armaan ho
shor nahin ho
khaamoshi ke mele hon
is duniya mein koi nahin ho
ham donon hi akele hon
tere sapne dekh rahaa hoon
aur meraa ab kaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bataa tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

Blog Day : 3578 Post No. : 14326

Today (5 may 2018) is the twelfth rememberance day of Naushad (26 December 1919 – 5 May 2006).

Naushad composed just above 600 songs in 64 Hindi movies. 530 songs from 60 of his movies have been covered in the blog. 49 of these movies have already been YIPPEED in the blog. So unlike other music blogs/ radio stations/ TV stations, who play the usual well known songs as always, we in this blog only have 70 odd Naushad compositions from 15 movies to chose from, seeing that we do not repeat a song in the blog.

Seeing that all Naushad movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED, we only have Naushad songs of 1970s and beyond left to be covered.

Here is a song from “Aaina”(1974) as a tribute to Naushad. This movie was a Kalakendra Films production. It was produced by N Selvaraja and L Duraiswamy and was directed by K Balachandar. The movie had Mumtaz, Rajesh Khanna, A.K.Hangal, Nirupa Roy, Rita Bhaduri,Ratan Chopra, Lalita Pawar, Jayasudha,Adil Aman, Manmohan Krishna, Anjum Savera,Vandana Rane, Yasmin,Baby Seema, Kalpana, Jagdish Raj, Polson, Madhukar, Brahmachari, Suraj, Prem Kumar, Master Paresh Kumar, Master Jaganath, Madan Puri, Suresh Chatwal, Jagdeepetc in it. This movie had Neetu Singh and Dharmendra in special appearances. The film also had Kamal Hasan in it who was also one of the dance directors of the movie.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

This song, the third from the movie, is sung by Lata. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist.

The song is picturised as a radio song on Reeta Bhaduri, who is seen singing this song as a tribute to Mumtaz, who plays the long suffering and scarificing bhartiya naari in the movie, as far as I can tell from the picturisation of this song.

The picturisation also shows many other persons, including Nirupa Roy, listening to the broadcast of this song on radio.


Song-Wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye (Aaina)(1974) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila
kya mila
kya mila

jaise baadal barasta hua
pyaas jag ki bujhaata hai
aa aa aa
jaise baadal barasta hua
pyaas jag ki bujhaata hai
jaise chandan sabhi ke liye
apni kushboo lutaata rahaa aa
yoonhi tum apna jeevan lutaati rahi
par tumhen pyaar kiska mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila

khwaab dekhe hamaare liye
ek pal bhi agar so gayi ee ee
khwaab dekhe hamaare liye
ek pal bhi agar so gayi
tum ho maa saare pariwaar ki ee
sabki fikaron mein tum kho gayi ee
tum ho ma sare pariwar ki ee
sabki fikaron me tum kho gayi ee
tum na biyahi
na hatho me mehndi rachi
aur na maathe ko teeka mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir
unhen kya mila

ek aurat ho meri taraha
phir bhi lagti ho devi mujhe
aa aa
ek aurat ho meri tarha
phir bhi lagti ho devi mujhe
apna sab kuchh mitaaya magar
ik nayi zindagi di mujhe ae
apna sab kuch mitaya magar
ik nayi zindagi di mujhe ae
har andhere mein jalti pighalti rahi
dil tumhen deep jaisa mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila
kya mila
kya mila

Missing Films of 1960s – 46
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we introduce the film ‘Chaar Chakram’ from 1965. Another film by the same name was also produced in 1932. The name ‘Chaar Chakram’ takes off on the more familiar Hindi phrases that tell of the friendship amongst four friends – ‘chaar yaar’ and ‘chandaal chaukdi’.

This film was produced under the banner of PM Pictures, Bombay and directed by Sultan. The star cast listed in the Geet Kosh is very detailed. The lead roles are by Shyam Kumar and Leela Kumari, and the supporting cast is Tuntun, SK Prem, Anjum, Fazal Khan, Haroon, Bhagwan, and another long list of names that are not too familiar – Kenny, Bob, Butter, Jilani, Maqbool, Ajeet, A Siddique, Hameeda, Sabeena, Lawrence, Chand, Doctor, Daud, Ameer, Muhammad Sandow, Ahmed, Zeenat, Purushottam, Bhai Das, and Iqbal.

Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film. All songs are written by Anjaan, and the music compositions are by the lesser know duo of Suresh-Talwar. The singing voice is of Minu Purushottam. So as you would have noticed, today’s song is quite a bit off the regular track, in terms of the artists involved.

The song tells of how the young lady’s heart has been stolen by her beau. His appearance is that of a simpleton. But his eyes cast a magic spell and the young lady is smitten with love.

With this song, the 1965 film ‘Chaar Chakram’ makes its debut on our blog.

Song – O Bhole Bhaale Jawaab Nahin Tera  (Chaar Chakram) (1965) Singer – Minoo Purushottam, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Suresh-Talwar

Lyrics

o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera
naina mila ke
yun muskuraa
chheen liya tu ne
dil mera
dil mera
dil me. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

surat se to hai bada bhola bhaala
par tera andaaz sabse niraala
surat se to hai bada bhola bhaala
par tera andaaz sabse niraala
jaana na maine
kab aa ke tu ne
kiya mere dil mein basera
basera
base. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

teri nigaahon mein hai aisa jaadu
aankhen milin to hua dil bekaabu
teri nigaahon mein hai aisa jaadu
aankhen milin to hua dil bekaabu
mere bhi dil par
zulmi nazar ka
jaadu wahi tu ne phera
re phera
re phe. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

jab se nazar meri tujh se ladi hai
haathon mein ye pyaar ki hathkadi hai
jab se nazar mei tujh se ladi hai
haathon mein ye pyaar ki hathkadi hai
ye hi hai bandhan
jisko ye duniya
kehti hai ulfat ka ghera
re ghera
re ghe. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा
दिल लेने वाले जवाब नहीं तेरा
नैना मिला के
यूं मुस्कुरा के
छीन लिया तूने
दिल मेरा
दिल मेरा
दिल मे॰॰एरा॰॰॰
ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा
दिल लेने वाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

सूरत से तो है बड़ा भोला भाला
पर तेरा अंदाज़ सबसे निराला
सूरत से तो है बड़ा भोला भाला
पर तेरा अंदाज़ सबसे निराला
जाना ना मैंने
कब आ के तूने
किया मेरे दिल में बसेरा
बसेरा
बसे॰॰एरा॰॰॰
ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा
दिल लेने वाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

तेरी निगाहों में है ऐसा जादू
आँखें मिलीं तो हुआ दिल बेकाबू
तेरी निगाहों में है ऐसा जादू
आँखें मिलीं तो हुआ दिल बेकाबू
मेरे भी दिल पर
ज़ुल्मी नज़र का
जादू वही तूने फेरा
रे फेरा
रे फे॰॰एरा॰॰॰
ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा
दिल लेने वाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

जबसे नज़र मेरी तुझसे लड़ी है
हाथों में ये प्यार की हथकड़ी है
जबसे नज़र मेरी तुझसे लड़ी है
हाथों में ये प्यार की हथकड़ी है
ये ही है बंधन
जिसको ये दुनिया
कहती है उल्फ़त का घेरा
रे घेरा
रे घे॰॰एरा॰॰॰
ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा
दिल लेने वाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

khoobsurat haseen, koi tujh sa nahin
aate hain nazar aise chehre magar

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————-

गाता जाये बंजारा

That is the image that forms in the mind. A distant, unfamiliar scenario. A solitary person trudging along a dusty road that leads through farms and fields, passing through towns big and small.

There is a purpose in the pace. There is a steadiness in the tread. There seems to be an unhurried and patient urgency in the forward movement.

Is he searching for someone, for something? Is he expecting a certain destination? I don’t know. The landmarks, they come and go, the milestones pass by. But he appears not to halt anywhere, never seems to take rest. Just a pause at a milestone, sees it with a searching eye, takes another breath, and then presses on.

He seems to be carrying something, slung on the shoulders. Is that an instrument of music? Or is it something else? What is it, I am not able to make out.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“वो चाँद सा चेहरा लिए, छत पर तेरा आना

tu raat khadi thi chhat pe
nee main samjha ke chaand nikla

There is something so uniquely desi about this romantic element – ‘chhat pe’ – ‘on the rooftop’ scenario. If it were the western milieu, the thought would be to go as far as the balcony; the scenario being Juliet present at the balcony and Romeo serenading her from the garden below. No where the western writer has thought of ascending to the terrace, bring in the soubriquet of the moon, and then let the verse take over from there. On the subcontinent, so much romance seems to have happened on the terrace, in the pages of prose and in the lines of verse.

Wow and wow, what a song. Same story, same pattern – production house is obscure, film is obscure, actors not so well accepted as grade A material, music director not so well recognized as top of the line. And that is where we find some the most titillating gems of music. Under different circumstances, this song could have been top of charts. E.g. if this song was performed on screen by, say, Shammi Kapoor, well then it would have been treated as a hit, and would have found its place in the listings of timeless classics of Rafi Sb’s fun songs.

The last post by me in the blog was on 28th february 2016. Nine days have passed since then and I have not posted a single post in the blog during this period !

Some unavoidable reasons kept me away from the blog for this long. Despite my absence, the blog stayed active thanks to posts made by Sudhir Ji. I am extremely thankful to him to keep the musical bandwagon going single handedly for these nine days.

In 1963, when Sunil Dutt lip-synced the songs in the film ‘Gumrah’, that was the time when the name of a till-then-relatively-unknown singer became a household name.  And yes, it also earned him the first of his three Filmfare awards for the best male singer.  The song – “Chalo Ek Baar Phir Se Ajnabi Ban Jaayen Hum Dono”.  The singer – Mahendra Kapoor.

Remembering Mahendra ji on the anniversary of his passing away today – 27th September.
