Blog Day : 3721 Post No. : 14656

By now it seems to have become a routine for me to make only cameos on this blog, triggered either by a memorable event (such as the blog’s tenth anniversary) or a “nudge” from another Atulite. 🙂

I will not seek to correct this impression – for the facts speak for themselves. I will also not make any excuse of “being busy” – that would only be an insult to people like Atul and Sudhir ji who manage to give so much time to the blog, despite so many demands on their time.

So no excuse – mea culpa. Today’s post is also a result of a nudge – this time from Peevisie’s Mom.

It happens to be the birthday of Feroz Khan today – and she called me up to remind me of it. A while ago, she and I had discussed that the popular song “Hamaare Siwa. . .” (‘Apradh’ – 1972) had not yet been posted on the blog – so she called up to remind me that there was an occasion coming up to remedy the situation. 🙂 So here is the post for this song – and to remember Feroz Khan.

I remember writing about Feroz Khan earlier – I think it was a couple of years ago. I haven’t checked that post – and am writing purely from my thoughts of the moment – so kindly excuse me if much of what I say is repetitive.

Feroz Khan, for me, has his own place in Hindi cinema. There are many who had a more successful career than Feroz. Certainly as an actor, he wasn’t rated all too highly, if I’m to be brutally honest. He had his moments, but one would have to be disingenuous about his acting achievements, to put him in the same league as at least a dozen other actors/stars.

And though he was very successful as a producer/director, there have been more successful producers / directors. And yet, for me, Feroz holds his own in Hindi cinema. As a personality, he seemed to me to have something about him that made him different from others. I think it was the way he carried himself.

Much of my exposure to Feroz was, of course, in the 1970s. By that time he had turned producer – so I got to see him both as actor and producer – in films like ‘Apradh’ (1972), ‘Dharmatma’ (1975) and ‘Qurbani’ (1980). All these films have one thing in common – they are all made on a grand scale, with no expenses spared, no corners cut in producing an extravagant spectacle for the audience. Naturally this became the image of Feroz Khan in my mind – and I think, for most people. His films are glamorous, with foreign locales, expensive cars and the like. Feroz seemed to revel in this flamboyant image – and continued it through the 1980s and 90s in films like ‘Janbaaz’ (1986), ‘Dayavan’ (1988) and ‘Yalgaar’ (1992).

If the films made by him are to be taken as representative of his life, one would not be mistaken in saying that Feroz lived life king-size. I enjoyed each one of these films – they were thoroughly entertaining, with a decent story line (which is very important for me!) and good songs too. Most of the songs of films made by Feroz became super-hits, suggesting he had a good ear for music.

And yet, for me, the story doesn’t end here. It is the first half of his career, so very different from the second half, that makes his story fascinating for me. Like I’ve said before, my clearest memories of Feroz are from his films of the 1970s. But he acted in many films in the 1960s too – and any reference to his work that does not mention this would be incomplete.

One of my friends once jokingly said “Feroz Khan probably got into producing his own films because he got fed up of never getting the heroine.” 🙂

Yes, said in jest, but it is true that in many of his films till he began making his own, Feroz missed out. In some early films, he was the villain – so then it’s understandable. But in many other films too, even as the good / semi-good guy, he would end up not getting the heroine. In ‘Oonche Log’ (1964), the heroine dies – in ‘Mela’ (1970), his character dies as he “sacrifices” for his brother. And in films like ‘Aarzoo’ (1965), ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969), ‘Safar’ (1970), ‘Upaasna’ (1971), the heroine loves the other guy. Small consolation maybe that in ‘Darinda’ (1977) he manages to turn the tables on Sunil Dutt for ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969). 🙂

Of course, that was how the script was written – but it always made me feel bad to see Feroz lose out. 🙂 , even though he’d occasionally get to sing lovely songs like “Darpan Ko Dekha. . .”  and “Jo Tumko Ho Pasand. . .” in the process. 🙂

Then there were those black-and-white films of the 60s. Many not well-known, probably then categorized as “B’’ films. Many with Mumtaz, herself then not in the A league. Having both gone through similar careers in the 60s, Feroz and Mumtaz were very good friends – and it’s hardly surprising that Mumtaz was his lead when he produced Apradh (1972).

One song from a Feroz “B” film I fondly remember is “Anjaan hai koi” (‘Anjaan Hai Koi’ – 1969). I think this song was quite popular in its time – at least I remember it from my childhood. Other less-known Feroz films I remember are ‘Ek Paheli’ (1971) with Tanuja (“Main Ek Paheli Hoon”) and ‘Anjaan Raahen’ (1974) with Asha Parekh (“Mujhe Nahin Poochhni Tumse Beeti Baatein”).

And of course, ‘Kashmakash’ (1973) and films like ‘Khote Sikke’ (1974) and ‘Kaala Sona’ (1975). The last-two were typical films that could have been made for Feroz – I remember enjoying both of them. 🙂

In general, I liked watching his films, especially of the 70s and later – they were never boring. Feroz himself, while never having pretensions to being a great actor, was fun to watch. And one of my favourite Rafisaab songs is picturised on him – “Jaag Dil-e-Deewaana”. 🙂 (‘Oonche Log’ – 1965).

So today, on his birthday, I have fond memories of Feroz Khan – and want to thank him for making entertaining films, with lovely songs. Today’s song is from ‘Apradh’ (1972) – the once very popular “Hamaare Siwa”. I remember listening to it a lot on radio at the time.

I saw the movie ages ago – sometime in the 70s. Have not seen it since, so I don’t remember anything of the story. I think it was something to do with smuggling, and had a lot of foreign locales, but sorry, I can’t remember any more than this. It’s surprising that in more than 10 years on this blog, the song hasn’t been posted yet. But better late than never, I guess.

So today, on Feroz Khan’s birthday, let’s all enjoy this song from his own film – the first film he produced/directed.

 

Song – Hamaare Siwa Tumhaare Aur Kitne Deewaane Hain (Apradh) (1972) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare?
haan tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
achha?
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

khoobsoorati aur wafaa
dekhi na donon ek jagah
haan haan dekhi na donon ek jagah
hote hain mard bade shakki
baat hai ye bilkul pakki
bholi si
aati ho nazar
haan haan bholi si
aati ho nazar
ho chanchal chaalaak magar
aurat ka dil jaane nahin
aap hamen pehchaane nahin
chhodo chhodo hum bhi sayaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

tum ho pareshaan kis gham se
raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
haan haan raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
apni kaho chhodo meri
karte ho kyon hera pheri
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
sab ko nishaana banaate nahin
khud harjaayee bhanwre ho tum
ek jagah kab thehre ho tum
chhodo chhodo hum to parwaane hain

hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
hmm
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain

हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं

हाँ तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं
कसम से किसी को नहीं मैं जानती

अरे छोड़ो छोड़ो ये तो बहाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं

खूबसूरती और वफा
देखी न दोनों एक जगह
हाँ हाँ देखी न दोनों एक जगह
होते हैं मर्द बड़े शक्की
बात है ये बिलकुल पक्की
भोली सी आती हो नज़र
हो चंचल चालाक मगर
औरत का दिल जाने नहीं
आप हमें पहचाने नहीं
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम भी सयाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

तुम हो परेशान किस ग़म से
राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
हाँ हाँ राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
अपनी कहो छोड़ो मेरी
करते हो क्यों हेरा फेरी
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
सबको निशाना बनाते नहीं
खुद हरजाई भँवरे हो तुम
एक जगह कब ठहरे हो तुम
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम तो परवाने हैं

Hullo Atuldom

7th April 2018 is the 76th birthday of Ravi Kapoor- unbelievable. He has been around in the entertainment industry/ Bollywood since 1959 i.e. close to 60 years. WOW!!! That is a really long time. And we are fans of his and know him as JEETENDRA.

His first on-screen appearance was in V.Shantaram’s “Navrang” as Sandhya’s character’s double. Post that he got his first major break in Shantaram’s “Geet Gaya Pattharo ne”. 1967 saw him in diametrically different avatars in “Gunahon ka Devta” and “Farz”—and 51 years after “Farz” the epithet of “Jumping Jack” still reminds us of Jeetuji and his vigorous dancing prowess. The T-shirt and white shoes became his trademark and suited his lean frame. He has appeared in only about 200 films of which only 80 or so were made-in-south movies most of them remakes of successful Telugu, Tamil and Kannada movies. He was the preferred North-Indian star of that era as far as T. Rama Rao, L.V. Prasad, Rama Naidu and such other South Indian filmmakers were concerned. But there was another set of films that had him in completely subdued character as in “Parichay”, “Mere Humsafar”, “Khushboo”, “Kinara”, “Dharti Kahe Pukaar Ke” and a long list of other movies.

He was loved by the audiences with any heroine he was paired right from Rajshree, Babita, Mala Sinha, Asha Parekh, Nanda and Mumtaz to the next set of ladies like Hema Malini, Rekha, Leena Chandavarkar, Reena Roy, Moushumi, and a few movies with Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi, Neetu Singh and finally Sridevi and JayaPrada.

The above list looks like the roster of the heroines of the film industry. The only name that doesn’t feature in that list is that of Smita Patil as the only movie that featured the two, Smita was opposite to Dharamendra. And the list doesn’t name Rakhee, Jaya Bhadhuri (Bachchan), Bindiya Goswami, Radha, Bhanupriya, Madhavi, Meenakshi Seshadri, Madhuri Dixit etc. as they did only one or two movies each with Jeetuji.:) Phew! That is one long list. I am sure there are other heroines whose names are missing here. 🙂

As far as his acting style is concerned he must have been good to have lasted this long. I am sure people will say that he has survived on his dancing abilities alone, but then his movies with Gulzar at the helm didn’t have any dancing. He was a complete package of n actor who was comfortable with action, emotion, just standing and singing; dancing and singing.

His last silver screen appearance was in Farah Khan’s “Om Shanti Om” in the party song. He also produced a few movies, a business which is being looked after by his able daughter Ekta.

Today on his birthday I thought of all the possible songs and zeroed in on a song that is heard very often on the radio– mostly Vividh Bharathi, my staple source of film songs for years. It is from the 1976 released, L.V. Prasad produced “Udhar Ka Sindoor”. It was a remake of the Telugu movie “Manasullu Devudu”. The cast was headed by Jeetendra, Reena Roy and Asha Parekh with Prema Narayan, Asrani, Dheeraj Kumar, Manju Bansal (Asrani), Om Shivpuri and Urmila Bhat in supporting cast.

Just as a matter of trivia, here I feel like mentioning that Asha Parekh is the same age as Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan and has co-starred as heroine to Jeetuji and RK but has been AB’s Bhabhi (in movies). Also, another point of interest which should be noted is Asha Parekh’s debut as heroine came in 1959 in “Dil Deke Dekho” and Jeetuji first appeared on-screen in 1959 in “Navrang” but as a character’s double.

Coming back to the movie “Udhar Ka Sindoor” (I sat through it to know what the movie was all about). It is a movie full of emotion- love for sister, love and gratitude towards foster-father; pinning to reunite with a lost sister; some drama on finding the sister, a groom for the foster-sister and then some action towards the end as by then the hero has become an inspector on the chase of a gang that forges currency. As it so happens the leader of the gang is the foster-brother who has to be pulled up for all the wrongs that he has committed including raping the lost-sister. That is why I said it was a movie full of EMOTIONS. And since there are two heroines, who happen to be sisters, there is a dose of sacrificing the hero for one another thrown in for good measure :). The hero is the lucky person as he gets to sing romantic songs with one sister and get married to the other and be worshipped by her since he married her despite her blindness.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan was the music director.

Wishing all health and happiness to our “Jumping Jack” Jeetendra.

Shashi Kapoor, after the success of “Chor Machaaye Shor”(1974) was in great demand among producers. Shashi Kapoor signed up indiscriminately to work in all the movie offers that came his way. He had nearly seventy films with him at one stage. Top actors those days gave “dates” to shoot with producers by “shifts”, Shashi Kapoor used to shoot by hours, that is how busy he was.

“Chakkar Pe Chakkar”(1977) was one of those seventy odd movies that Shashi Kapoor had signed up for in the wake of the success of “Chor Machaaye Shor”(1974).

“Chakkar Pe Chakkar”(1977) was directed by Ashok Roy for Bipin Films International, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shashi Kapoor, Rekha, Pran, Madan Puri, Naaz, Amjad Khan, Bindu, Asrani, Raza Murad, Lalita Pawar, Bhagwan, Rajesh Behl, Tarun Ghosh, Bhushan Tiwari, Maruti, Ranveer Raaj, Dhanraj, Ram Mohan, Dilip Dutt, Viju Khote, Shekhar Purohit, Sudhir, Ram Mohan, Leena Das, Paresh Nanda, Rajan Haksar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Chakkar Pe Chakkar”(1977) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji anandji.

The song is picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Rekha as an expression of love genre of song.

With this song, “Chakkar Pe Chakkar”(1977) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Arre kahaan kahaan kis kis din kis kis waqt pe aaoge (Chakkar Pe Chakkar)(1977) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

arre kahaan kahaan kis kis din
kis kis waqt pe aaoge
kahaan kahaan kis kis din
kis kis waqt pe aaoge
jahaan jahaan jis jis din
jab jab mujhe bulaaoge
tum jab jab mujhe bulaaoge

ae kahaan kahaan kis kis din
kis kis wakt pe aaoge
haan jahaan jahaan jis jis din
jab jab mujhe bulaaoge
tum jab jab mujhe bulaaoge

jab mere honthon se
teri yaad lipat jaaye
jab mere honthon se
teri yaad lipat jaaye
aur pyaar dard ban ke
mere dil mein simat jaaye
ho dard tera baant loon main
dard tera baant loon main
jab jab aawaaz lagaaoge
jahaan jahaan jis jis din
jab jab mujhe bulaaoge
tum jab jab mujhe bulaaoge

meri do aankhon mein
har sapna tera ho
meri do aankhon mein
har sapna tera ho
ye raat thahar jaaye
na iska sawera ho
ho

arre sapnon ki baaton ko
sapnon ki baaton ko
kya sach kar ke dikhlaaoge
jahaan jahaan jis jis din
jab jab mujhe bulaaoge
tum jab jab mujhe bulaaoge

arre kahaan kahaan kis kis din
kis kis waqt par aaoge
haan jahaan jahaan jis jis din
jab jab mujhe bulaaoge

“Qurbaani”(1980) was produced and directed by Feroz Khan. The movie had Feroz Khan, Vinod Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Amjad Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Amrish Puri and Kadar Khan etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the four songs from “Qurbaani” (1980) that have already been showcased in the blog:-

Qurbaani qurbaani qurbaani Allah ko pyaari hai qurbaani 11419 25-Sep-15
Laila main Laila 14222 31-Mar-18

The movie was “inspired” from a curry western Italian/German movie called “The Master touch”(1974). The movie has impressive background music by Ennio Moricone whose background music in movies like “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly”, “For a few dollars more” etc are extremely popular till today.

“Qurbaani” (1980) makers looked elsewhere for inspiration for the songs of the movie. While Kalyanji Anandji “arranged” or created music for four songs, as the case may be. one “western” song was composed by Biddu and that song turned out to be one of the freakest hits in the history of HFM. The creaters of this song, viz Nazia Hassan and Biddu could never replicate that success again.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Qurbaani” (1980) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is by Kalyanji Anandji.

While listening to the lyrics of the songs of this movie, I realised that the lyrics writing of Indeewar has not received the credit that he deserved. For instance, he has given a routine Hindi film song situation such wonderful yet simple sounding lyrics that this song has gone on to become an all time classic.

The song is picturised on Zeenat Aman and Feroz Khan on the rugged and picturesque locations of Afghanistan. Some people like it for the picturisation, while some people like it for the singers. This song was one of the last few Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets out of the several hundred songs that they sang together.

With this song, “Qurbaani” (1980) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Kya dekhte ho soorat tumhaari (Qurbaani)(1980) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

kya dekhte ho

soorat tumhaari
kya chaahte ho
chaahat tumhaari
na hum jo keh den

roz roz
roz roz dekhoon tujhe
nayi nayi lage mujhe
angon mein amrit ki dhaara
tere angon mein amrit ki dhaara

dil lene ki dhang teri
seekhi koi rang tere
baaton ka andaaz pyaara
teri baaton ka andaaz pyaara
sharaarat se chehra chamakne laga kyoon
sharaarat se chehra chamakne laga kyoon

yeh rang laayi hai sangat tumhaari
kya dekhte ho
soorat tumhaari

socho zara
socho zara
jaan-e-jigar
beetegi kya tumpe agar
humko jo koi chura le
tumse humko jo koi chura le
kisi ne jo tumhen chheena
naamumkin hai uska jeena
kaise nazar koi daale
tumpe kaise nazar koi daale

pyaar pe apne itna bharosa
pyaar pe apne itna bharosa
itna mohabbat mein fitrat hamaari

Hullo to all in Atuldom

“Maan Gaye Ustaad”(1981) was a Shibu Mitra directed movie.

Chandan Singh (Pran) is a farmer who lives in a village called Ramgarh along with his wife, Malti (Sonia Sahni), and two children, Munna and Munni. One day Malti gets molested by three city goons, Jaikishan (Ajit), Rajan, and Banoo (Rajan Haksar). Chandan intervenes, but is attacked, and Malti is shot dead. The children get separated, while Munna is adopted by a Muslim male named Abba (Om Prakash) and is re-named Shera, Munni is adopted by a Hindu family and re-named Geeta.

Years later the three estranged family members are fated to meet again – this time Geeta is a con-woman, who has a con-man boyfriend, Kishan (Shashi Kapoor), who is on the lookout for the man who killed his photographer brother (Chandrasekhar), and believes that Chandan is the killer; while Chandan, who is now known as Chandan Dada, a hoodlum, has been arrested for killing a man named Rajan; while Shera, a hit-man and hoodlum himself, has feigned his arrest, after accepting a contract from none other than Jaikishan – to kill Chandan!!

The movie then goes through the normal way of first bringing the family together with the help of the song that the father had taught his children before calamity struck the family and they got separated.

The movie was almost like a show case for Pran. He had a song filmed on him and that song appeared three times in the movie. He got to take revenge from the villains, had a beautiful wife in Sonia Sahni, and he also got a qawwali which was a competition between him and Amjad Khan.

But this is not the only movie where he had songs to emote too. We have loved him with Ashok Kumar in so many songs, and I am sure everyone will agree that the most entertaining one was in “Victoria No. 203” – “do bechare bina sahaare dekho pooch pooch kar hare”.

But one cannot forget him with Kishore Kumar either- “Aake seedhi dil pe katariya oh sawariya” (Half Ticket) or Amitabh Bachchan – “Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi”.

And we should not forget that Pran’s innings as a “good” character artist began with his “malang chacha” mouthing “kasme vaade pyaar wafa sab baatein hai” “in Upkaar”.

He began his filmi career in pre-independence era with Yamla Jat, Khajanchi, Chaudhary etc in Lahore in Punjabi. His Hindi film run began with “Khandaan” (1942. Here I feel like mentioning the other “Khandan” (1965) where he played a villain to make the life of the hero Sunil Dutt miserable.

His career in Bombay (Mumbai of today) started with “Ziddi” which was also a break for DevAnand and by 1950 Pran was a premier villain in Bollywood. He was the most sought-after villain opposite Dilip- Raj- Dev through the 50s and 60s. We have seen him being mean to every other hero of that period Dharmendra, Rajendra Kumar, Manoj Kumar, and any other hero we can think of (I am not going into the Roster of the heroes of the sixties here).

During this period, he had a brief role in Manoj Kumar’s “Shaheed” which was not a negative character.

But post “Upkaar” he had a second image change and we could see him as a good grandfather “Parichay”, friend “Zanjeer” “Guddi” “Beimaan” etc alongwith being the badman.

He had a style all his own be it in getting into various getups that went with the character he played or the blowing of smoke rings and holding the cigar or cigarette in a different way I each movie. There are many present-day character actors- Gulshan Grover for example- who swear on Pransaab being their role model much the same way as heroes copy Dilip- Raj- Dev. 🙂

He would have been celebrating his 98th birthday today (12 February 2018). I just could not get this date go by without we posting a song filmed on Pransaab. For today’s song Mohd. Rafi has given his voice alongwith Dilraj Kaur and Chandrani Mukherjee. This song appears about three times in the movie- once in happy times when Chandan Singh is the family man and farmer, once when he is so “good” a prisoner that the jailor Ashok Kumar trusts him to let him play around the jail with his grandson. And finally, at the climax of the movie when his (now grownup) children are tied up by the villain (I am unable to locate that video).

Today also happens to be the birthday of a person who became a friend thanks to this blog. We know him as Avinash Scrapwala. Here I would also like to wish him all the very best in life. Best wishes are also due to another Atulwaasi- Nitin Shah and his wife celebrate their Wedding Anniversary today. Here is wishing them long years of togetherness.

toot padoongi gaddaaron pe

“Do Bhai”(1969) was directed by Brij for Dynamo International, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Mala Sinha, Jeetendra, Jagdeep, Chaand Usmani, Malika, Sheikh Mukhtaar, Hercules, Asit Sen, Maruti, Pal Sharma, Gautam Mukherji, Vinod Sharma, Radheshyam, Ratan Gaurang etc in it.

This social movie had five songs in it. Three of the songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Do Bhai”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and an unknown child voice. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The playful sawaal-jawaab song is picturised on Mala Sinha, where a child (I am unable to identify her) get quite confused from the questions which have only two options viz Good/Bad. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

“Vikramadiyta”(1945) was directed by Vijay Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The historical movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Ratnamala, Baburao Pendharkar, Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Bhagwandas, Jillo etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Vikramadiyta”(1945) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rajkumari and Manna Dey. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair.

I have not been able to get the lyrics of this song right at one place. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the gaps/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable. The lyrics of this romantic song are in chaste Sanskritised Hindi, which to mind is quite appropriate and extremely suitable for a song of this nature. It is a rare song that deserves to be better known among music lovers. To those who may be wondering, this song is about a ras ka lobhi bhanwra getting trapped inside a flower. The lady is wondering why the lotus flower is swaying despite there being no breeze, and the gentleman (King Vikramaditya most probably) explains that is a bhanwra, trapped inside the flower that is trying to come out. Very nice imagination from the poet.


Song-Hain gagan mein baadal thahre huye(Vikramaditya)(1945) Singers-Rajkumari, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Shankar Rao Vyas

Lyrics

aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa
hain gagan mein baadal thahre huye
hain gagan mein baadal thahre huye
aur pawan bhi chal chupchaap raha
aur pawan bhi chal chupchaap raha
hain stheer aaj ban bel vraksh
koi pankhhi na raag alaap raha
koi pankhhi na raag alaap raha

sundar prabhat sheetal kirnen
sundar prabhat sheetal kirnen
tere mann mein sama kya paap raha
tere mann mein sama kya paap raha
hain shaant sarowar ki lahren
hain shaant sarowar ki lahren
yoon kamal bata kyun kaanp raha
phir kaho kamal kyun kaanp raha

sun ri
sun ri bholi
is mein koi
sun ri bholi
is mein koi
kar paap ka paschhataap raha
kar paap ka paschhataap raha
is mein madhukar madhu ka lobhi
is mein madhukar madhu ka lobhi
sandhya ko aa chupchaap raha
sandhya ko aa chupchaap raha
laalach mein bandiwaan hua
laalach mein bandiwaan hua
ab shakti hai apni naap raha
ab shakti hai apni naap raha
hai tadap raha wo mukti ko
hai tadap raha wo mukti ko
is liye kamal hai kaanp raha
is liye kamal hai kaanp raha

हैं गगन में बादल ठहरे हुए
हैं गगन में बादल ठहरे हुए
और पवन भी चल चुपचाप रहा
और पवन भी चल चुपचाप रहा
हैं स्थीर आज बन बेल वृक्ष
कोई पंखी ना राग अलाप रहा
कोई पंखी ना राग अलाप रहा

सुंदर प्रभात शीतल किरणें
सुंदर प्रभात शीतल किरणें
तेरे मन में समा क्या पाप रहा
तेरे मन में समा क्या पाप रहा
हैं शांत सरोवर की लहरें
हैं शांत सरोवर की लहरें
यूं कमल बता क्यों काँप रहा
फिर कहो कमल क्यों काँप रहा

सुन री
सुन री भोली
इस में कोई
सुन री भोली
इस में कोई
कर पाप का पश्चाताप रहा
कर पाप का पश्चाताप रहा
इसमें मधुकर मधु का लोभी
इसमें मधुकर मधु का लोभी
संध्या को आ चुपचाप रहा
संध्या को आ चुपचाप रहा
लालच में बंदीवान हुआ
लालच में बंदीवान हुआ
अब शक्ति अपनी नाप रहा
अब शक्ति अपनी नाप रहा
है तड़प रहा वो मुक्ति को
है तड़प रहा वो मुक्ति को
इस लिए कमल है काँप रहा
इस लिए कमल है काँप रहा

OK so, ‘Ek Ladki Saat Ladke’ from 1961, is the film that today joins the ranks of films with all their songs posted. It is Yippeee-land time for this film. And that’s all folks, that I can say for this film. Another one of the ‘Lost Children’, about whom nothing more is known, nothing more exists in memory. Yes, there is information that is contained in the Geet Kosh. Based on the Geet Kosh inputs, the basic demographics for this film are as follows.

The film is produced and directed by Roop K Shorey. The cast of actors is very brief – Ravinder Kapoor, Ameeta, Majnu, Badri Prasad, and Durga Khote. After having tasted success with ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949) and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (1953), Roop K Shorey tried to repeat a similar sounding formula in this film.  The earlier two films had Motilal and Meena K Shorey as the lead pair, and Vinod as the music director.  But in this film, the only common link is Vinod, who also was replaced by S Mohinder, in unfortunate circumstances.
