I started this series in December 2020 with great enthusiasm, just after Geeta Dutt’s 900th song post had appeared in the blog.  The following 6 posts appeared in the series up to June 2021.

Songs at Sl. No. 6, 7, 9, 13, 14, 15, 17, 23 & 24 are not yet posted in the blog.  The song I am presenting today is at Sl. No. 17, i.e. from the film ‘Balyogi Upmanyu’ (1958).  Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this mythological film’s songs composed by Chitragupt.  Here Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar are accompanying Geeta Dutt for singing this song talking of hard work, fruits of hard work, farming, self-confidence, hope and a certain bragging attitude etc.  But the happy spirit of the song is infectious, and one can listen to it again and again.

The following 2 songs of this movie are posted in the blog, making this the 3rd song.

Baalyogi Upmanyu(1958)(2/8) MD-Chitragupta

Duniya Ke Anyaaiyon Anyaay Ki Hoti Khair Nahin

Mann Nirgun Ke Geet Ab Gaata Jaa

I found this song a few days ago, while looking for Chitragupt-Rafi songs, and I thought it is a very enjoyable and nice composition.  All three singers are in sync with the accompanying chorus.  I need to post some solos to even out the series.  There are too many songs by Geeta Dutt in obscure films.  I have not done bad so far, considering the songs were all new songs for me.   Hope to find some known, popular songs not yet posted to fit in the series.

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 7
———————————————————

When I started as a ‘new contributor’ to this blog I had shared a Kishore Kumar song from the movie ‘Paanch Dushman-1973’ to Atul ji.
I was in fact not aware of this song before that, and it was my boss then, who, noticing my interest in music, had asked me about the link of the song.
He in turn was asked by one of his friends who was looking for this song. Both were aware of few lines of this song and about the singer only, and nothing more – like about the movie’s name etc. I was successful in locating this song. Later I also shared it to the blog. This song was posted on the blog on October 03, 2012.

The movie ‘Paanch Dushman-1973’ itself was an ‘obscure movie’ for me. However, our inhouse encyclopaedia Shri. Arunkumar ji, in his comment on this post, had mentioned in detail about this movie which I am reproducing here below.

October 03, 2012
Atul ji,
PAANCH DUSHMAN-1973 was a film made under the banner of M.G.O. Films, Bombay. It was produced by Manu Narang but Directed by Bimal Rawal. The music of R.D. Burman had lyrics from Majrooh. There were 6 songs,3 solos and 3 duets. Solos were by KK-2 and Rafi-1,Duets of Asha/KK-2 and Lata/KK-1.The other songs are better than the above song.
The cast was Lead pair of MANU NARANG and RAJEE,both were first timers.Manu Narang was the son of S.D.Narang, the famous Producer/Director, who himself was a dashing Hero in the 40s.Films like KHAZANCHI-1941 were big hits-not because of Narang, but because of superb Debut by SHAMSHAD Begum in Hindi films. She had sung ALL 9 song-Solos-in the Debut film and created a sort of record, unbroken till today.
Manu Narang was one time the famed Playboy of the 50s and 60s and was in the news for all wrong reasons. There are umpteen stories of him and his Rang reliayan…………
No one can predict why a Hindi film succeeds. This film PAANCH DUSHMAN had the essential ingredients of a successful Masala film. It had a good looking youthful new lead pair, one of the best Music Directors, Best singers, very good story line,5 Villains (Pran, Shatrughna, Manmohan, Vinod khanna and Prem Chopda),
6 comedians (Mehmood, Mukri, Mohan choti, Agha, Sunder and Bramhachary),2 Cabaret dancers (Aruna Irani and Helen) an eternal weeping Maa-Baap (Durga Khote and Nazir Hussain), but HARD LUCK! This murder mystery did not succeed…..
This period in Hindi films was of stories of Smugglers, desh ke Dushman etc. Accordingly, the storyline went like…
Sunil (Manu Narang) is accused of murdering his own brother Raju and a Prostitute. He and his lover Reeta (Rajee) learn that the real motive of the murder was Diamonds. So, to tap the real murderer, Sunil poses as a Dimond merchant cum a Prince. The 5 villains are lured who go after the best Diamonds that he has. Finally, with the help of his friends, lover and a helping Police Inspector (Jagdish Raj), the real culprit is captured.
Despite dances, drama and mystery, fight and little weeping by Hero’s crippled parents, the public showed its back to the film and very quickly, the film went in hiding.

In later years this movie was re-released in ‘1987’ with the title as ‘Daulat Ke Dushman. Though its music was created by none other than our beloved Pancham Da, this movie remained a not-so familiar movie for me.

“Paanch Dushman’ (alias ‘Daulat Ke Dushman) was directed by Bimal Rawal. It was produced by Manu Narang. It had Manu, Rajee, Aruna Irani, Sunder, Mukri, Mohan Choti, Durga Khote, Nassir Hussain, Sujata, Yograj, Jagdish Raj, Brahmachari, Agha, Helen, and Mehmood.
Story, screenplay, and dialogues of this movie were written by Dr Balkishan Mauj.

Editing of this movie was done by H.B. Pathare.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.01.1973. (This movie will turn ‘fifty’ next year 😊)

Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, and Asha Bhonsle, and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie had seven songs (six plus one added later) written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D. Burman.

SNo Song-Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jeana to hai par aye dil kahaan Kishore Kumar 03.10.2012
02 Aaj jamaa hai kunj gali mein Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar

06 Jaana hai hamen to jahaan qaraar miley Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar
07 Sonaa chaandi jhoothhi daulat… Sachchi daulat pyaar * Manna Dey

(Note: – The ‘Addenda’ of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that ‘this movie was later released in 1987 with the title ‘Paanch Dushman’ ‘alias’ ‘Daulat Ke Dushman’, with this additional song ‘Sonaa chaandi jhoothhi daulat, sachchi daulat pyaar … sung by Manna Dey.)

(*appears as first song in the movie in the background of titles)

In 2015 I got my first copy of HFGK i.e., HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) but I had never gone through other songs of this movie since then. Also, they were not available then. Now songs of this movie are uploaded by music lovers and we can now listen to all songs of this movie.

Recently while browsing through the blog, I noticed that only one song of this movie was posted in 2012. Soon this movie will be completing its ‘ten years’ run on the blog without adding the second song. So, I checked and found today’s song which is sung by Rafi Saab. This is the only song sung by him in this movie and that fits the bill for my series of ‘Pancham-Rafi Songs’ where I have discussed songs where Rafi Saab had sung only one song in the movie where music was composed by R.D. Burman.

When I listened to today’s song for this post and listened to its’ link with dialogues, I immediately identified the voice of Mehmood. So, yes! this is a song of Rafi Saab sung for Mehmood.

Let us now enjoy today’s song in Rafi Saab’s voice singing for Mehmood. The song is picturised on Mehmood and Aruna Irani.

Here is this entertaining song …

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 09
———————————————————

96th birth anniversary of O. P. Nayyar

Today, finally we arrive at a Rafi-Asha duet on the occasion of 96th birth anniversary of legendary composer of beautiful songs, OP Nayyar. I am sure, I have long back looked at this duet and saved the link multiple times in different laptops/folders.

I, for one, am most happy that this was somehow missed by all regular contributors to the blog, and not yet posted.  So that I am having a quintessential Rafi-Asha duet by OPN, which is written by Qamar Jalaalabadi.

Qamar Jalaalabadi has already featured in this series.  So, this post in about Rafi Sahab’s association with Asha Bhonsle and OP Nayyar. Film is ‘Basant’ from 1960. The following 10 songs of this film are already posted on the blog:

Baaje Waala Patiyaale Waala
Chori Chori Ik Ishaara Ho Gaya Hai
Duniya Pakki Four Twenty
Hamne Unke Saamne Pehle To Khanjar Rakh Diya
Mere Dil Pe Lagaa De Darling Apne Naam Ki Chit
Mere Lahange Mein Ghunghroo Lagaa De
Nainon Mein Sooraj Ki Kirnen
Peechhe Hat Hat Hat Babu Chhed Naa
Raaste Mein Ik Haseen
Ukkad Dukkad Bamba

To find an OPN-Rafi song, I was just going through the list of songs Music Director-wise page in the blog and I found that right from ‘Baaz’ (1953) which is the third film score for OPN after ‘Aasmaan’ and ‘Chham Chhama Chham’ in 1952, Rafi Sahab is a regular in all his films.  Rafi Sahab has no songs under OPN in the film film ‘Mangu’ (1954).

Significant, popular and hit music scores of OPN-Rafi combination:

 

Year Name of Films
1955 Mr. & Mrs. 55
Musafirkhaana
1956 Bhaagam Bhaag
CID
Choomantar
Hum Sab Chor Hain
Naya Andaaz
Shrimati 420
1957 Johny Walker
Mai Baap
Naya Daur
Qaidi
Tum Sa Nahin Dekha
Ustaad
1958 12 O’clock
Howrah Bridge
Mr. Cartoon MA
Mujrim
Phagun
Sone Ki Chidiya
1959 Do Ustaad
1960 Basant
Jaali Note
Kaplana
Mitti Mein Sona
1962 Ek Musafir Ek Haseena
Hongkong
1963 Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon
1964 Kashmir Ki Kali
1965 Mere Sanam
1966 Aqalmand
Do Dilon Ki Dastaan
Saawan Ki Ghata
Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi
1968 Hamsaaya

This combination gives us a real treat of great songs from mid 50’s to late 60’s. I am getting the feeling that I have missed something in the above list, so it may be worth visiting again.  I have counted 200 plus songs in the excel sheet, so that makes a good sizable portion of all songs composed by OPN in his career.

Total tally of these OPN and Asha Bhonsle songs is as below:

OP Nayyar (1952-1994)

487

71 movies (562)
Asha Bhonsle

2887

7874

As for Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets, 547 of these are posted on the blog.  Compare this with 348 Rafi-Lata duets in the blog. At a guess there are around 450 Rafi-Lata duets, as compared to anything between 650-700 Rafi-Asha duet songs. Rafi-Asha duets are too many to go through at short notice.  So I will surmise to say that these two have sung many iconic and classic songs under numerous music directors, like OPN, SDB, RDB, Ravi, Chitragupt, Kalyanji Anandji etc.

So here’s is song, a duet by OPN in the film ‘Basant’ (1960).  The year 1960 is the peak of OPN, but he was to go on to give greater musical treat to Hindi film music in the 60’s, with Rafi and without Rafi in a rare instance.  His association with Asha Bhonsle is a long one, which eliminated the need for more than one female playback singer in a film’s score.  Asha Bhonsle is the most versatile singer to have graced the Hindi film playback field.  No doubt, OPN has a big role to play in shaping Asha’s career, in the face of stiff competition from her sister Lata Mangeshkar, who ruled the field for more than 30 years.

OP Nayyar has the distinction of having succeeded in the film industry music scene, without having Lata Mangeshkar sing a single song for him.  It makes a big statement about OP Nayyar, to have withstood this sort of situation and survived spectacularly, swimming against the tide.

The song must have been filmed on Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, seeing they are the lead pair of the film.  Johnny Walker and Kammo are another pair in the film, but the song is sounding like a Shammi Kapoor song. So this one is also among the last few Rafi songs on Shammi Kapoor, to be posted here on this blog. Rafi-Shammi Association details have to wait for another day.

We are celebrating fifty years of the year 1972. And we are adding on the blog, the movies of 1972, which so far have not been presented on the blog. There were total 131 movies released in the year 1972. We will be checking this list alphabetically and keep adding such movies which are still missing. In this ‘project’ our today’s movie is ‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’.

I was surprised that this movie has not been presented on the blog till now. I was under the impression that this movie has already been covered on the blog. Well, alphabetically ‘Gaon Hamaaraa Shehar Tumhaaraa’ is the forty-sixth movie from the year 1972 (as per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). In between from alphabet ‘D’ to ‘G’ we find one more movie ‘Fighter Sheela’ of which the songs and other information seems to be unavailable as of now.

*Note: – Songs for films ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Bharat Darshan’ and ‘Fighter Sheela’ seems to be unavailable as of now).

‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ is directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Films, Bombay. He is also the producer of this movie. This movie was presented by Rajendra Kumar. The star cast includes Rajendra Kumar, Rekha, Sujit Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Satyadeep, Shamsher, Aarti, Ajit Sachdev, Sundar, Bhagwan, Kamaldeep, Kanhaiyyalal and others.

Dialogues of this movie are written by Rajinder Krishan. And editing of this movie is done by Govind Dalwadi. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1972.

‘Gaaon Hamaaraa Shehar Tumhaaraa’ had four songs written by Rajinder Krishan and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle had given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

S No Song Title Singer/s
01 Nayi hawaa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chalaa Mohd Rafi
02 Ik pyaar karnewaale ne ik pyaar karnewaale se ye poochha Mohd Rafi
03 Kaise kahoon kis’se kahoon sharm ki hai baat Asha Bhonsle
04 Jaana hai jaana hai door kahin jaana hai Lata Mangeshkar

Today’s song is the first song in the movie, and it is played while the titles roll on. It is sung by Mohd Rafi, and on-screen Rajendra Kumar is lip-syncing the song. Rajendra Kumar is shown carrying his luggage and singing the song and telling the ‘gaaonwaalaas that he is going to ‘shehar’ now.

Some other artists, (whom I am unable to identify) can also be seen in the picturisation of this song which shows Rajendra Kumar’s journey from ‘village’ to ‘city’ and the city is none other than Bombay (current day Mumbai).

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to the today’s song

With the today’s song the movie ‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ makes its debut on the blog.

Song – Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala (Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara) (1972) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala

sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
paani ki boondon ke badle
harey note barsaataa hai
bhar letein hai jholi
jiska jitna zor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
deewaaron ko haath lagaao
to batti jal jaati hai
apne ghar to diya kabhi naa
saari raat jala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
dekha jaayega kismat mein
jo bhi likha hoga
nikal pade jab ghar se
kyun naa karega raam bhala aa
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala
aon Hamaara

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 08
———————————————–

14 Jan – Remembrance Day of Chitragupta

Chitragupta has recorded 260 plus songs with Rafi Sahab for Hindi and Bhojpuri films during the period 1950 to 1980.  Having gone through the whole list of these songs, I have come to the conclusion that I am a creature of radio.  The songs heard on radio long back ring a bell and I am drawn to them.  There are other well-known songs, which I had not heard on the radio as a child, they don’t make this short list of my personal favorites.

Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi Ke Ab Ye Des Hua Begaana

Chali Chali Re Patang Meri Chali Re

Laagi Chhoote Na Ab To Sanam

Deewaana Aadmi Ko Banaati Hain Rotiyaan

Teri Duniya Se Door Chale Ho Ke Majboor

Koi Bata De Dil Hai Jahaan

Mujhe Dard e Dil Ka Pata Na Tha

Jaag Dil e Deewaana Rut Jaagi Vasl e Yaar Ki

Ye Parbaton Ke Daayera Ye Shaam Ka Dhuaan

There are some songs, which I have discovered in recent years and written posts for them too.  But since I can’t recall the tune and the lyrics and the feel of the song, by just looking at the mukhda, is not the songs fault.  So, if some people find their personal favorites missing from the above list of Rafi Sahab’s solos and duets under Chitragupta, they can blame me.

 Today is the 31st death anniversary of veteran music director Chitagupta, who has composed 1000 plus song in his long career from 1940’s to 80’s. In commemoration, I am discussing a Rafi solo, composed by Chitragupta and written by Manohar Khanna for the film ‘Zindagi ke Mele’(1956). Only two songs from this film are posted in the blog.

Kar Le Ri Solah Singaar
Tu Meri Heroine Main Tera Hero

It is said that Chitragupta never reached the status of A grade music directors.  But from where I can see, it doesn’t make any difference in the long run.  Because his compositions have survived the test of time, just like most of the melodious and memorable work done by all the music directors of the golden era of Hindi film music.  The field was crowded in the 50’s with talented and established MD’s and also with new aspirants.  The songs of all the composers are equally appreciated and loved.  I have always found the unheard (by me) songs of Chitragupt, very melodious and likable, with a spirit of their own.  They make their mark and leave an impression, with their rustic flavor.  I always make it a point to listen to his songs whenever they appear in the blog, especially solo songs of Lata Mangeshkar.  500 of these songs are already posted in the blog, as can be seen in the table.

Chitragupta 500 139 movies (1057)
Manohar Lal Khanna 46

The song is lamenting the society and its remorseless, paralyzed state in the face of injustice.  ‘Duniya Waalon’ are the mute spectators of an unjust practice, which those suffering it do not deserve.  And those who standby and do nothing to stop the injustice, cruelty and ugliness in the society are to be equally held responsible, because they had the means to oppose the practice and should have raised their voices.  But they chose to do nothing, and there have been very few social reformers in India who have actively worked to stop this practice of ‘dahej’.  The experience of civilizational development has shown that making criminal laws, has not worked in reducing the crimes.  Crimes continue to increase, despite stringent laws.  The reforms have to stem from the value system in the society.   Like many other social evils, the ‘dahej’ and dowry system has become a part of the landscape in our enlightened society.  Here we think that we are the culture and we have learnt to turn the other way, in the name of civilized and appropriate behavior.

The truth camouflaged into lies and lies camouflaged as truth.

The movie title ‘Zindagi Ke Mele’ reminds me of the iconic song, this unforgettable Rafi solo :

ye zindagi ke mele
ye zindagi ke mele
duniyaa mein kam na honge
afsos ham na honge


Song – Saji Sajaai Dulhan Reh Gayi Baabul Neer Bahaaye (Zindagi Ke Mele) (1956) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Manohar Khanna, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

dhan se baandhe..ea
preet ka bandhan..nn

ye iss jag ki..ee reet

kaisa tumhaara nyaaye
saji sajaayi

bhagwaan aag lag jaaye..ea..ea
bhagwaan aag lag jaaye
maathhe lagaa hai daag jo kaala
iss ko kaun mitaaye
o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye
saji sajaayi

baabul neer bahaaye
o duniyaa waalo
kaisa tumhaara nyaaye

It was the 19th death anniversary of Qamar Jalaalabadi on 9th January 2022. Some months ago, I found this very sweet and sad solo song by Rafi Sahab and it is been in my drafts all this while. The movie is ‘Gauna’ of 1950. Lyricist is Qamar Jalaalabadi and composers are Husnlal-Bhagatram.

It is a poignant rendition of a short 4 sha’ir ghazal. The following three songs from this movie are posted in the blog out of total 7 songs.

This is a very interesting music score actually with songs by Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar and Shamshad begum, along-with a Shamshad-Geeta duet, remaining to be posted. This will be a treat to discover, listen and post one by one.

This is the present tally of the creators of this song, in the blog:

C Ramchandra – 40th remembrance day anniversary on 05/01/2022
—————————————————————————
Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 7
—————————————————-

Rafi sahab sang 80 + songs under C. Ramchandra, starting from 1946 to 1977 beginning with Bachchon ka Khel(1) and Safar(2) in 1946. This is followed by 6 songs in ‘Saajan’(1947), two each in “Khidki’ and ‘Nadiya ke Paar’ in 1948.

Two of the most melodious Solos, which made both Rafi sahab and C. Ramchandra , famous have seen the light of day by this time. ‘These are ‘keh ke bhi na aaye tum, ab chhupne lage taare’ in Safar 1946 and ‘ham ko tumhaara hi aasra tum hamaare ho na ho’ in Saajan 1947. Geeta Dutt, Lalita Deulkar and Shamshad Begum feature in group songs and duets with Rafi in all these films till 1949.

Then there is Duniya 1949 with Suraiyya, where Rafi sahab sings two duets and two solos.

‘Namoona’ 1949 has the first ever Rafi-Lata Duet (tadpa ke mujhe ab chhod diya ) under C. Ramchandra.

There are no more solos for Rafi Sahab, till ‘Insaaniyat’ 1955, where Rafi Sahab is part of 11 songs including 5 solos, out of total 17 songs in the film. The journey continued with films like Lutera 1955, ‘Nausherwan-e-adil’ in 1957, ‘Amar Deep’ in 1958, ‘Paigham’ in 1959 and ‘Sarhad’ in 1960. Here they both take a break from each other, I mean C. Ramchandra and Rafi Sahab, till 1970 where they work together for “Rootha na karo”. Lastly Rafi Sahab sings teams up with C. Ramchandra in 1977 for the film ‘Akbar Saleem Anarkali’ where he sings 3 duets with the south Indian legend P. Susheela.

The association seems inconsistent, with gaps in between, and appears inadequate. But by 1960 Rafi Sahab had made his name as the foremost playback singer and C. Ramchandra’s career was petering out. The fact that C. Ramchandra himself was a singer of repute, could have been one of the reasons for there being so less songs in the 50’s decade. While Rafi sahab was giving block buster musical scores for established and non-established composers through 50’s, C. Ramchandra was also making great music with films like ‘Anarkali’, Shabistaan, Albela, Azaad and Navrang etc.

The song I am presenting in this tribute post on remembrance day for C. Ramchandra is a duet song from the film ‘Saanwariya’ 1949. Lalita Deulekar is the co-singer in this song, which is written by P. L. Santoshi. I have counted 30+ songs written by P. L. Santoshi in the excel sheet of Rafi songs, between 1948 to 1968. With Lalita Deulkar, there are total 8 songs including 2 group songs.

Here is the total no. of songs to the credit of all three, composer, lyricist and co singer and the songs posted in the blog:

Artist Songs in blog Songs in HFM career
C Ramchandra(1942-1978) 556 110 movies(907)
P L Santoshi 212 664
Lalita Dewoolkar 34

The following 6 songs from Sanwariya (1949) are already posted in the blog:

Song Date of post
Preet kiye pachhtaayee re saanwariya 30 september 2012
Duaa dene waalon hamen do duaayen 2 October 2012
Jaani re hum jaani re 22 January 2013
Chale gaye angrez english gaana nahin achcha 5 May 2014
Oonchi neechi hai sadak ghoda jaaye na bhadak 29 July 2016
Bedard zamaane mein dekho…Duniya waalon dil khol hanso 20 December 2017

The present song in 7th out of ten songs in the film. Only audio link is available, but from the lyrics it appears to be a ‘holi’ song. Quite a spirited song with chorus and the chhed-chhad mode, which is usually the case with holi songs.

While writing down the lyrics, I had to take the help of head phones, as this is a very old song, almost 73 years old. The audio quality is sometimes very poor, and this song record is the same. But surprisingly or not so surprisingly, its Rafi sahab’s voice which is crystal clear and stands out as the humanely divine sound, in the portions he sings alone and along-with chorus also. He sounds more amazing in the last stanza ‘kahat kabir……’ part and the inevitable alaap in between.

If anyone present in that recording studio in 1948-49, is still alive today, surely could not have forgotten the sound of the echoing divinity of the singing voice, where it seems as if the primitive microphone in front of Rafi sahab is much too hungry to absorb his powerful voice. Or was the technique for echo in sound recording was in use back then?

I will hold this thought, till I find another amazing rendition by Rafi Sahab.

Song Date of post Singer(s)
Maine ek ladki pasand kar li 30 August 2008 Rafi
Teri haseen nigaah ka ehsaanmand hoon 4 January 2012 Rafi-Lata

As “blog Ten Year Challenge” today (4 January 2022), here is a song from “Devi”(1970). The song is sung by Rafi and a kid voice, credited as a kid who would later be known as Baba Sahgal.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Baby Sarika. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Blog Day :

4915 Post No. : 16737 Movie Count :

I count the minutes the days the hours. . .
I count the stars. . .

Days, then weeks, then months – on to years and decades. The march of time incessantly continues. Superimposed on this unremitting progression is a calendar that allows us to measure passages of time. The philosophers of yore had no tools other than observation and contemplation, by which they used to measure natural phenomena. And then this measurement and contemplation over long periods of time uncovered patterns of celestial movements which tied into the the design of changing climate on earth. And thus was born the concept of calendar and measures of years. Over a period of time it got refined into a detailed structure that we now see as twelve months and 365 days. Of course with further refinements of leap years and leap centuries to make accurate adjustments to synchronize the this framework with the precise movement of Sun in our skies.

As aeons progressed, the year became a substantive measure of passage of time that fitted well into the cycle of seasons, and hence into the cycle of agriculture and farming of crops. This was the basic standard that started it all – there is nothing more critical in the world than food for survival. Air and water are available, but food – it has to be grown.

So the year became a standard of passages in life. The human life, its works and its achievements got tied with the cycle of years. Age of humans, education, performance measures of all kinds et al, got tied to the cycle of years. Longevity of relationships and the apparent joy of happiness, trust and loyalty, financial turnovers – you name it. Everything happens with the passage of years.

And the year also become the benchmark of celebrations, be it birthdays, anniversaries etc., everything is in terms of number of years.

And this pyramid is completed when we celebrate the passage of the ‘year’ itself. From time immemorial, different races, different nations, different belief systems, different working systems, and more – have identified their own regulated time points within a year, when the completion of one year is announced. Within our own country we have multiple celebrations around the year, when we announce the dawn of a new year. And so have many other countries, religions and sects of people.

The Gregorian calendar is the most prevalent and accepted calendar around the world at present times. And hence the start of a fresh year as per this calendar is also a celebration that has been accepted worldwide. Come 1st January, and the dawn of the New Year is celebrated across all nations and across all time zones. So that brings us to the celebration of the New Year on our blog also.

Over the past thirteen plus years, we have celebrated this day fourteen times, starting with 1st January 2009, and counting up to today i.e. 2022. As I tried to trace out the songs which are specifically New Year celebration songs, I could locate only 11 songs that have been used so far on this blog. No doubt the celebration and greetings messages are contained in some more posts that are dated 31st Dec and 1st Jan. But not all those songs are specifically New Year celebration songs. Here is the list of these eleven songs. In case I have missed any, please leave a comment, and I shall update this table.

Ye Saal Ki Aakhhri Raat Hai Beraham 1980 31-Dec-11
Saal Mubaarak Saahib Jee Do Jaasoos 1975 1-Jan-12
Naya Saal Aaye Tamaashe Dikhaaye Nazraana Pyaar Ka 1980 1-Jan-12

Sach Kehta Hai Ye Saara Zamaana Jaagir 1984 1-Jan-20

Our dear Prakash Chandra ji has been very diligent with ferreting out songs for special occasions, and he has been very helpful in the past in getting details about New Year celebration songs to Atul ji and myself. Actually two of his suggested songs are still waiting. As I was trying to use one of them for this post, I discovered that the links provided were not functional at this time. So for today, we are using this song from the 1977 film ‘Zehreeli’. The film makes its debut on our blog today.

‘Zehreeli’ is a run-of-the-mill crime and punishment tale. A B-grade movie, that most likely came and went without raising much interest. The film comes from the production house of Amba Films,Bombay and is directed by VN Reddy, who is also the cinematographer of this film. The star cast of this film is listed as Neetu Singh, Shailendra Singh, Bindu, Jalal Agha, Imtiaz, Virendra, Jairaj, Purnima, Sharat Saxena, Jagirdar, Satish Arora, Nandita Thakur and others.

As per Geet Kosh, there are three songs in this film. The music director for this film is Sharda, whom we better know as a singer.  As I check the MD details on the blog, we already have four songs on board, that have been composed by her. This now is the fifth song composed by her to be showcased here.

Two songs of this film are penned by Vithalbhai Patel and one song is written by Abhilaash. This song is from the pen of Vithalbhai Patel. The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi and Aarti Mukherji. On screen, Bindu is lip syncing the voice of Aarti Mukherji. I had a hard time trying to identify the gentleman who lip syncs Rafi Sb’s voice. The name is M Naidu, and he is also the choreographer for the film. I must thank my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai, an ardent fan of Rafi Sb, for this identification.

The song is somewhat peculiar. It has only one stanza after the mukhda, and it was also an exercise to confirm that this is the complete version. The audio of the song, and also the song on screen has a longer duration. More than half the duration of the song is simply music and dance by Bindu. Oh well, the powers that may be. It is a song of Happy New Year message, so here we are.

This is the opening song of the film immediately after the credits are displayed on screen.

And so, it is a goodbye to the dear 2021, and a welcome to the fresh and new 2022.
Wishing all readers, friends and fellow band-wagoneers, a Very Happy and Peaceful New Year.

gaya saal gaya aur naya saal aaya

[sounds of revelry and laughter]

har nazar mein pyaar ki hai roshni

Happy New Year

हे
जवां समा जवां बहार
चमन मुस्कुराया
गया साल गया और नया साल आया
जवां समा जवां बहार
चमन मुस्कुराया
गया साल गया और नया साल आया
दिल में प्यार का नशा
झूमती दिशा दिशा
चारों ओर जादू सा छा गया
चारों ओर जादू सा छा गया

[आमोद प्रमोद और हंसी के शब्द]

हर नज़र में प्यार की है रोशनी
मुस्कुरा रही है नई ज़िंदगी
हर अदा लगे हमें भली भली
बाहों में आ गई है हर खुशी
मुझसे कोई मुझको ही चुरा गया
आँखों में तारे सजा गया

हे
जवां समा जवां बहार
चमन मुस्कुराया
गया साल गया और नया साल आया

हैप्पी न्यू यीयर

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 21
—————————————————

My favorite genre of Rafi song is not really a ‘bhajan’ per se but the the period often professed by me to find the most appealing of all periods is the 50’s. And for some time now, I have not posted a 50’s Rafi solo. A song again on a higher octave, this is a devotional song sung with chorus, in the movie ‘Aastik’ (1956). Music Director is Narayanan Dutt and it is written by SP Kalla.

As marking the anniversary’s or events go, this is an occasion to beat all anniversaries. But obviously some famously in tune entities who redefined the term “When in Rome do as the Romans do” have missed the flight. Or do they only commemorate birthdays and not death days? But then they do so with Rafi Sahab’s birthdays too on December 24.

Remembering the incomparable Rafi Sb on the 97 anniversary of his birth.

Here is the 50’s devotional song by Rafi Sahab with chorus, to enhance the listening experience of Rafi Sahab’s songs and paying tributes to the Legend. On screen, this song is performed by Shahu Modak.

Fondly that we all remember Rafi Sahab on this day, and we have missed him, even down to the latest blockbuster that we hear all over. Someone or other we find striving to achieve the spirit of Rafi Sahab’s singing or try to put soul into words like he did.

Jag ghoomeya thhaare jaisa na koyee. . .
