 Welcome all to this article of mine which comes after a long gap of more than a month, and though I am late in sending this article, I hope our editors will consider this for post. And that will also help me in getting back into the ‘article writing’ again, because since last two months I am trying to complete and send some of my unfinished articles, but the schedule at work front and very less time after official work is not allowing me time and the concentration to focus on the articles I wish to share.

Well, with this article I hope I get back into writing and share my thoughts taking you down memory lane into the ‘seventies’ again 🙂

***

8th December 2018 is the 83rd birth anniversary (08.12.1935) of actor Dharam Singh Deol whom we fondly know as Dharmendra. And, ‘maa kasam …’ 🙂 , he will be there in our fond memories of the movies from almost every decade ever since he began his career in the Hindi movies with ‘Dil Bhi Tera Ham Bhi Tere’ (1960) till the very recently released movie ‘Yamla Pagla Deewaana-Phir Se’ (2018).

For me I have fond memories of watching many of his movies with my uncles, like ‘Shikaar’ (1966), ‘Yakeen’ (1969), ‘Kab? Kyun? Aur Kahaan?’ (1970), ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ (1971), ‘Resham Ki Dori’ (1974), ‘Raja Jaani’ (1973), and more. Then I also remember some of his movies which I must have watched with my parents like ‘Yaadon Ki Baarat’ (1973), ‘Dost’ (1974), ‘Sholay’ (1975), ‘Maa’ (1976), ‘Charas’ (1976), ‘Dream Girl’ (1977), ‘The Burning Train’ (1980) etc. I still remember watching his ‘Devar’ (1966), during the Ganpati Festivals on the small 16mm screen in open grounds in the seventies.

Then there were movies which I watched with my brothers and cousins during the ‘summer vacations’ like ‘Dharam-Veer’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Ram Balram’ (1980), ‘Teesri Aaankh’ (1982), ‘Samrat’ (1982), ‘Main Intaqaam Loonga’ (1982). And then movies like ‘Aap Ki Parchhaayiyaan’ (1964), ‘Main Bhi Ladki Hoon’ (1964), ‘Izzat’ (1968), ‘Mere Hamdam Mere Dost’ (1968), ‘Khamoshi’ (1969), ’Sharaafat’ (1970), ‘Samadhi’ (1972), ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’ (1973), ‘Chaitaali’ (1975), ‘Chupke-Chupke’ (1975), ‘Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka’ (1975), ‘Kinaara’ (1977), ‘Blackmail’ (1978), ‘Dillagi’ (1978) which I watched during the weekly screening of movies in the re-creation club building in our colony where we were staying then.

Then, when I was a grown-up boy 🙂 there was a phase in my life when I was learning in 11 -12th std but was less on studies and more on cricket and movies. I watched many of his movies like ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), ‘Pyaar Hi Pyaar’ (1968), ‘Jugnu’ (1973), ‘Patthar Aur Paayal’ (1974), ‘Pratigya’ (1975), and the other movies released during those years (1983-1985) i.e. ‘Naukar Biwi Ka’ (1983), ‘Qayaamat’ (1983), ‘Jeene Nahin Doonga’ (1984), ‘Baazi’ (1984), ‘Dharam Aur Kanoon’ (1984), ‘Jaagir’ (1984), ‘Jhoothha Sach’ (1984), ‘Raj Tilak’ (1984) etc. And then I got to watch some movies like ‘Bandini’ (1963), ‘Neela Aakaash’ (1965), and ‘Satyakaam’ (1969), ‘Phagun’ (1973), on television (‘Doordarshan’) during this period.

The above was when we were still located in the Akola District of Maharashtra (CP & Berar circuit for the movies). And by that time I was already a Rajesh Khanna fan 🙂 . Reading the film magazines then I came to know that it was Dharmendra whose movies were still running good even during the Kaka’s Superstardom days. After that we shifted to Parli Vaijnath – Marathwada region of Maharashtra (and known as in the Nizam Circuit for the movies).

There I had already taken up working in a construction company and during this period till 1988 I watched many of the old and new movies. I remember I watched Dharmendra’s ‘Aaayi Milan Ki Bela’ (1964), ‘Kaajal’ (1965), ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ (1966), ‘Anupama’ (1966), ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ (1966), ‘Phool Aur Patthar’ (1966), ’Aankhen’ (1968), ‘Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke’ (1969), ‘Rakhwaala’ (1971), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Keemat’ (1973), ‘Baghaawat’ (1982), ‘Hukumat’ (1987), ‘Aag Hi Aag’ (1987) etc.

Then I shifted to Kota (Rajasthan) in Nov 1988 for my professional career and there also watching the movies was the ‘main source of entertainment’. I got to watch many old Hindi movies as well as the new ones. I got to watch Dharmendra’s movies like ‘Batwaara’ (1989), ‘Naakabandi’ (1990), ‘Farishtey’ (1991) and after many years I got to watch ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ (1971) again in a theater. I watched the film repeatedly on consecutive days and enjoyed it a lot. Later on, based at Kota and traveling around places like Nimach, I watched ‘Tehalka’ (1992). I also remember correctly that I watched his ‘Man Ki Aankhen’ (1970), on VHS cassettes on ‘VCR’ we use to hire to watch movies then during our weekly get-together or holiday. Later I bought VCDs of the films ‘Ganga Ki Lehren’ (1964), ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’ (1967), which has one of my favorite songs “Ek Haseen Shaam Ko. . .“.

And there are other movies like ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1968), ‘Bahaarein Phir Bhi Aayengi’ (1966), ‘Chunaoti’ (1980), ‘Do Chor’ (1972), ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ (1970), ’Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ (1973), ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’ (1973), ‘Mohabbat Zindagi Hai’ (1966), ‘Naya Zamaana’ (1971), ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983), ‘Tum Haseen Main Jawaan’ (1970), which I don’t remember correctly but I think I watched them either in theatre or on TV. As I was going through his filmography for this article, I was thinking that there are still many movies of him (till seventies) which I have not watched and should watch them as and when possible.

The latest movies that I have seen of Dharmendra is ‘Apne’ (2007), which I could not watch in theatre when I was in Kachchh-Gujarat and had later bought its DVD and watched with my parents and family at home.

Watching his movies has always been a different experience and entertaining and enjoyable too. I think me, and many others like me, will always be thankful to him for the joy he has given to us through his movies. His fight scenes with Shetty are always a favorite of mine and those were the main attractions from his movies too, wherever Shetty was co-star in the movies he acted.

Then there are songs from his ‘black and white’ movies and many other ‘musicals’ of the ‘seventies’ which I cannot forget and many of them are ‘songs that brings back memories’ for me. I have watched many of his movies more than once and it is always pleasant to watch him on the screen. I cannot forget his ‘emotional speech’ in the ‘Filmfare awards function’ when he was felicitated with the ‘Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award’.

His movies also have many emotional scenes between a ‘mother and son’ where I always find him very natural and touching. For today’s occasion I am presenting a song from the 1976 movie ‘Maa’. As I had mentioned earlier in one of my articles that there are few Hindi movies where an elephant has been a central character in the movies and few of these movies have been a part of my permanent memory since then. I remember to have watched this movie with my parents but have forgotten it now except Dharmendra, the elephants in the movie and this song that I am presenting today.

Though the song is a background song and not lip-synced by Dharmendra, I want to introduce it with this article. (I had earlier sent this song to Atul ji in Oct 2012). Also, this is the song which brings back memories of those years for me. It is part of that ‘nostalgia’ of Hindi movies and the songs for me over the years.

So, I when decided to share an article for Dharmendra’s birth anniversary (now belated), I searched for other songs from his movies where he also lip-synced the songs, or even from this movie ‘Maa’, but I strongly feel sharing of this song sung by Rafi Saab which is a trip down memory lane for me from the movies of Dharmendra of the seventies.

‘Maa-1976’ is edited and directed by M.A. Thirumugam for ‘Devar Films, Madras’. It is produced by Sandow M.M.A. Chinnappa Devar who had also written the story of this movie. It has Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Nirupa Roy, Ranjeet, Padma Khanna, Devar, Om Prakash, Paintal, Bramhachari, Shashi Kiran, Rajan Haksar, Urmila Bhatt, Umesh Sharma, Raj Baldev, Viju, Kalpana, Gemini Balu, Narayan Mustafa, Anand Kumar and others. Dialogues for this movie were written by Inder Raj Anand and editing was done by M.G. Balurao (assisted by K. Ramu). The movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.09.1976.

The movie has total seven songs in it as per HFGK and all the seven songs are written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. HFGK also mentions about two tracks as club dance music and dance music in this movie. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

I am reproducing below the ‘plot summary’ of this movie as mentioned on IMDB

Vijay lives with his mother in a palatial house deep in the jungles in South India where he makes a living trapping animals for circuses, zoos – both nationally and internationally. He meets with beautiful US-returned Nimmi, both fall in love with each other and want to get married. Vijay’s mother cautions them both against separating new-born animals from their birth mothers, but both refuse to listen. Then the unexpected happens, a mother lioness, angered at Vijay for taking her cubs, attacks him, and leaves him badly wounded. With the help of his mother, and Nimmi, Vijay recovers and despite of what happened, and his mother’s warning, he again goes to trap animals – this time a baby elephant for a circus. He does manage to trap the elephant in a pit, but the angered mother elephant pursues them, even after they transport it in a truck. Her maternal and protective instincts come to fore, she overtakes the truck, dismantles it, but is chased away by Vijay and his employees. She turns to attack Vijay, but his mother intervenes – and is instantly attacked and crushed. Holding his mother in his arms, Vijay swears to hunt them the elephant as well as all other animals and kill them one by one, but his dying mother makes him promise that he will not do so, but instead return all cubs to their parents, as well as the baby elephant. Vijay promises to do so, and his mother passes away. Vijay is devastated, in heart-wrenching sorrow & pain, he calls out to his mother, and carries out her promise. He releases all trapped animals, and returns the cubs to the jungle. But returning the baby elephant, Ganesh, is another issue altogether as it has been transported to the city, and must be brought back. When Vijay goes to bring it back, he finds out that the truck had broken down, the elephant had escaped and is lose in the city. He desperately goes around looking for it. In the meantime, back home, the mother elephant is on a rampage, enraged at being separated from its child, it crushes vegetation, attacks villagers, and tears down their dwellings. And the next target that looms before it is none other than Vijay’s beloved – Nimmi…

 Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. The movie ‘Maa’ also makes a debut on the blog today …!!!

Belatedly wishing Dharam ji a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

[Author’s Note: This also serves one of my purpose of introducing movies having ‘same title’ too. We already have the movie ‘Maa-1952’ and ‘Maa-1960’(UR) on the blog. And fortunately, I had the opportunity to share couple of songs from the ‘1952-Maa’ and one song from the ‘1960-Maa’ on the blog].

माँ आ आ

माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
मैंने ममता को पहचाना
मैं बच्चों के दर्द को जाना
तुझको खोकर माँ आ आ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
माँ आ आ °°°°°°

माँ एक जैसी होती है
बच्चे इक जैसे होते है
चोट लगे तो इंसानों कि तरह
पशु भी रोते हैं
बिछड़े हुओं को मैंने मिलाया
मैंने अपना क़र्ज़ चुकाया
तुझको खोकर माँ आ आ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
माँ आ आ

तू सच कहती थी ई
किसीकी बद्दुआ लग जाती है
तू सच कहती थी ई
किसीकी बद्दुआ लग जाती है
अपनी ही बन्दूक से गोली
खुद पे भी चल जाती है
मैंने कैसा खेल ये खेला
रोऊँ बैठा आज अकेला
तुझको खोकर माँ आ आ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
मैंने ममता को पहचाना
मैं बच्चों के दर्द को जाना
तुझको खोकर माँ आ आ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
माँ तुझे ढूढूं कहाँ आ
माँ आ आ°°°

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 30
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ल’ – लीजिये दिल का नज़राना, लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना ॰ ॰ ॰

आवाज़ दे कर हमें तुम बुलाओ ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Ah yes, that is what the heart desires, but sadly, that will happen no more. . . you are so far away now, that our supplications so sent, do not reach you any more.

– – – –

OK, wow, another gem from the radio listening days. And what a wonderful reminder this song is. The film is ‘Naya Kanoon’ from 1965, and Rafi Sb is accompanied by Asha Bhosle in this song. Given that Madan Mohan is the music director, I am a little surprised that Lata does not figure in this film at all. Eight songs in all, with four female solos, and one duet (this one) – all carry the voice of Asha Bhosle. Possibly this recording may have been done during the time when there was a stand off between Lata ji and Rafi Sb. Still surprising that Madan Mohan did not get Lata to sing even one of the solo songs. Or possibly, other reasons, circumstances may have intervened.

The film is directed by RC Talwar for the banner of Manchanda Productions, Bombay. The main star cast is listed as Ashok Kumar, Vaijayantimala, Bharat Bhushan, Poornima, Nishi, Leela Mishra, Badri Prasad, Kamal Mehra, and Om Prakash among others. There are eight songs in this film, or may be seven, because one song is a multi version song sung as a solo by both Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. All songs are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri, except one, which is written by Saraswati Kumar Deepak.

On screen, this song is filmed a recording studio song. The two singers – Bharat Bhushan and Vijayantimala, are recording this song in a studio. Or maybe the song is being broadcast live.  As we see the three stanzas, there are short visual interludes, and the dresses of the two artistes are different in each stanza. The intervening scenes convey a message as if displaying the rising popularity, as well as prosperity of the singer.

Bharat Bhushan in this 1965 film is a distant call from his heydays of ‘Baiju Baawra’ in 1952. Decidedly not looking any younger, but he is also looking much more morose. As the visual clip starts and the music comes on, the mind gets into position for a fast paced light hearted duet. But the expression on the face of the hero conveys as if he is going to break into “Maayoos To Hoon Waade Se Tere. . .” 🙂 🙂 .

Regardless, a very breezy composition which will tickle a few memories in the minds of radio listeners.  Listen and relive those memories.

 

Song – Lijiye Dil Ka Nazraana, Lijiye Aankh Ka Shukraana  (Naya Kanoon) (1965) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics 

lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi

aankh ne dekha to dil ne paa liya
meethi baaton ne hamne behka liya
pyaar mein hum bhi tumhaare ho gaye
tum miley to hum khushi se kho gaye
kadmon mein khada hai deewaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

dil bade armaan se laaya hoon main
ye kali toofaan se laaya hoon main
meri palken jhuk rahi hain laaj se
tum hamaare ho chuke ho aaj se
aaya hai shama ka parwaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

aur bhi duniya mein laakhon chaand hain
aapke aage magar wo maand hain
aur bhi duniya mein laakhon phool hain
aapke aage magar wo dhool hain
haazir hai tumhaara mastaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana
ye preet banegi afsaana
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
bolo to sahi hai kya marzi
lijiye dil ka nazraana
lijiye aankh ka shukraana

लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना
ये प्रीत बनेगी अफसाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना
ये प्रीत बनेगी अफसाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी

आंख ने देखा तो दिल ने पा लिया
मीठी बातों ने हमने बहका लिया
प्यार में हम भी तुम्हारे हो गए
तुम मिले तो हम खुशी से खो गए
कदमों में खड़ा है दीवाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना

दिल बड़े अरमान से लाया हूँ मैं
ये काली तूफान से लाया हूँ मैं
मेरी पलकें झुक रही हैं लाज से
तुम हमारे हो चुके हो आज से
आया है शमा का परवाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना

और भी दुनिया में लाखों चाँद हैं
आपके आगे मगर वो माँद हैं
और भी दुनिया में लाखों फूल हैं
आपके आगे मगर वो धूल हैं
हाजिर है तुम्हारा मस्ताना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना
ये प्रीत बनेगी अफसाना
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
बोलो तो सही है क्या मर्ज़ी
लीजिये दिल का नज़राना
लीजिये आँख का शुक्राना

“Dharma”(1973) was directed by Chaand for Kapoor Films Bombay. This “social” movie had Naaveen Nischol, Rekha, Pran, Bindu, Ajeet, Ramesh Deo, Madan Puri, Faryal, Anjali Kadam, Paro, Asit Sen, Mohan Choti, Jayshree T, Rajan Haksar, Sonia Sahni etc in it.

The lead pair, the lyricist as well as the music directors are same as that of “Saawan Bhaado”(1970), so it appears to me that the makers of this movie had signed them up hoping to replicate the success of “Saawan Bhaado”(1970).

“Dharma”(1973) had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these three songs from the movie:-

Main teri gunahgaar hoon 8339 13-Jul-13
Arre saaqi jo kal ki hai bachi baaqi 14501 18-Jul-18

Here is the fourth and final song from “Dharma”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a teasing song along the lines of “Saawan Bhaado”(1970) song Kaan mein jhumka chaal me thumka.

The song is sung by Rafi. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonik Omi. Exactly the same musical team as “Saawan Bhaado”(1970). The song is picturised on the same actors as well, viz on Navin Nischol and Rekha.

I have provided the audio as well as video link of the song. There is slight variation in the lyrics of the two versions in the last stanza.

With this song, “Dharma”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Dulhan”(1958) was produced by A A Nadiadwala and directed by V M Vyas for Pushpa Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Nirupa Roy, Rajkumar, Bhagwan, Nanda, Jageerdaar, Sheila Kashmiri, Manorama, Agha, Jeewan, Indira Bansal, Munshi Munaqqa, Maqbool, Iqbal, Kanchan, Ansari, Moti (the dog) etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Dulhan”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is a duet sung by Shamshad Begam and Rafi. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is sung in a rock and roll style (which was quite popular in India at that time. The song is picturised as a club dance song. One can see Bhagwan lip syncing in Rafi’s voice. I am unable to identify the lady who lip syncs in Shamshad Begam’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

With this song, the blog now has 4800 songs from the decade of 1950s (1951 to 1960), which is easily the most well represented decade in the blog.

Blog Day : 3781 Post No. : 14761

I in this blog often talk about “natural” landmarks and “artificial” landmarks for the blog. “Natutral” landmaks for the blog are those that are intuitive, viz. century of songs in the blog, and later century of songs in the blog for an artist, a contributor etc.

Later, when we began to keep track of blog related statistics, we became aware when a duo of singers completed their century of duet songs, or the blog itself completed a century (or its multiple) of days.

Many of these “artificial” (more accurately “derived” or “secondary”) landmarks went unnoticed in the early days of the blog. For instance, we completed several hundred days and also thousand days in the blog but we remain blissfully unaware. In fact, the level of blissful unawareness was such that we did not even noticed it when the blog completed one year of its existence on 19 july 2009. 🙂

We have come a long way since.

While many of these landmarks events have to be created by effort, there are some landmarks that happen on their own. Time related landmarks, viz hundreds of days or thousands of days get achieved with time.

Likewise, number of visitors in the blog also happen with time, though that is dependent on factors like ability of the blog to attract visitors.

This blog had a humble beginning on 19 july 2008. During its early days, it attracted less than 100 visitors daily. There were only 406 visitors for the blog during july 2008, the month when this blog started.

I regarded it as a “landmark” occasion when the blog clocked more than one hundred visits for the first time. It was on 16 august 2008, the day of Rakhi festival, when I covered the iconic Rakhi song Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana .

The blog averaged 31 visitors a day in july 2008 and 72 visitors a day in august 2008 before breaking into the three figure region with 276 visitors per day during september 2008. 23 january 2009 was the first day when this blog received more than one thousand visitors in a day. 1145 visitors arrived on the blog on that day. The blog reached four figure a day mark for the first time during february 2009 with 1069 visitors daily. It was in june 2011 that the 2000 mark was breached for the first time. An average of 2226 visitors visited daily during this month. It took only two more months to reach the 3000 visitors a day mark. August 2011 saw 3109 visitors daily in the blog. The next peak arrived in october 2011. It was not 4000 mark or 5000 mark or even 6000 mark, rather an average of 7224 visiors per day that was achieved in this month ! On one particular day, viz 19 october 2011, as many as 10630 visitors arrived at the site !

It was too good to last though. By now we have settled at an average of over 3000 visitors daily.

In the process, the blog recorded its first one million visits on 25 october 2010, after 829 days. The subsequent million visits have come rather more quickly, as can be expected. The third millionth mark was reached the fastest- in just 152 days. Now a days, it is taking around 300 odd days (nearly ten months ) to reach one million visitos mark.

The blog clocked 10 million visits on 14 january 2018 at around 22:30 IST. The 11th million visitor was clocked on 22 november 2018 at around the same time.

Here is the summary of the eleven million visitors in the blog so far:-

Number of Visitors Date when achieved Blog day days taken for the million visits
1 million 25-Oct-10 829 days 829
2 millions 07-Nov-11 1207 days 378
3 millions 30-Apr-12 1359 days 152
4 millions 10-Dec-12 1606 days 247
5 millions 29-Oct-13 1929 days 323
6 millions 12-Oct-14 2277 days 348
7 millions 04-Jul-15 2542 days 265
8 millions 20-Apr-16 2833 days 291
9 millions 24-Feb-17 3144 days 311
10 millions 14-Jan-18 3466 days 332
11 millions 22-Nov-18 3779 days 313

I was wondering what song to discuss on the occasion. Finally I zeroed in on a joyous song from “Kaala Pathhar”(1979). This song is sung by Rafi, Lata, S K Mahan, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The picturisation shows almost the entire star cast (this was a multi starrer movie !) – viz Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh, Parveen Babi etc.

The video version of this song from “Kaala Patthar”(1979) is nearly six minutes long. But the audio version is even longer (nearly eight minutes long). I have provided both version of the some here.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement. It goes without saying that it was the support and encouragement of music lovers that helped the blog achieve this impressive number of visits from music lovers. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue on its merry ways with many more landmarks to achieve enroute.

Blog Day : 3778 Post No. : 14758

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Once upon a not-so-long a time ago the anniversary page on our blog said that Helen – the dancing diva – celebrates her birthday on 21st October and I had sent this song – “Lovelina, Aa Gaya Main“, from ‘Agent Vinod’ (1977) for the occasion. Then over the years we got enlightened that her birthdate was 21st November. And as I sit to write this, further enlightenment strikes – she turns 80 today!!!! WOW!!! And she has been entertaining us since she was 13, having appeared in ‘Awaara’ in 1951 – that is 67 years in public eye. Of course, the last time I saw her in front of the camera was on satellite television when she appeared on the chat show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ along with another favourite of mine – Asha Parekh. And so far, the last film that she has appeared in is ‘Heroine’ (2012) which is directed by Madhur Bhandarkar and starred Kareena Kapoor in the main lead. In there she portrays the character of a film artiste who is past her prime and is forgotten by the industry.

But the truth is Helen is not a forgotten has-been as far as the industry and her fans are concerned. She is still remembered fondly whenever we hear songs that she had performed to. Her sprightly steps, her outfits which were never garish even when there were sequins and feathers stuck on them, her luxuriant hair done up in various styles – are somethings which no other dancer or actress has ever tried to copy. She was never called a plain item girl, she was always the supporting actress who had some substance to her role even if it was two or three songs, with a few emotional scenes and there were films she was the second heroine pining for the hero and would give up her love or life in the climax so that the lead pair could live HAPPILY EVER AFTER. She has had a HAPPILY EVER AFTER life personally too even though she is her husbands’ (Salim Khan) second wife, theirs is a one big happy family and all of her step children have bonded closely with her. She has an adopted daughter who was given a grand wedding in 2014 and is now a grandma to that girl’s child. Her family is growing and hope her happiness grows too.

‘Ram Balram’ is a 1980 movie produced by Tito and directed by Vijay Anand. The movie was an average success at the box office. It brought Jai (Amitabh) and Veeru (Dharmendra) together after a gap of five years – five years after the super successful ‘Sholay’ (1975). ‘Ram Balram’ was the story of two ‘chachere bhais’ (cousins) who have a score to settle with Ajit – another of their chacha – who is responsible for all the calamities that struck their family. There is also a nautch girl – Tarabai (Helen) – who has some axe to grind against Ajit. As the movie moves to the climax, we have the brothers and Tarabai reaching their goals but in the melee Tarabai dies but not before seeing her daughter (Zeenat Aman) happy and in love with Ram (Dharmendra). Today’s song is a typical ‘trying to distract the villains’ henchmen’. The song is sung by Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Dilraj Kaur. It has both Zeenat Aman and Helen dressed in sarees (unusual for them) dancing a typical Dharmendra dance. The song was written by Anand Bakshi.

I had been reserving this song for a rainy day- for a time when I write a last-minute post. And so here it is to wish both Zeenat Aman (had her birthday on 19th– turned 67) and Helen a very happy birthday.

 

Song – Balram Ne Bahut Samjhaaya Par Ram Ne Dhoka Khaaya (Ram Balram) (1980) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Dilraj Kaur, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Asha Bhosle + Dilraj Kaur
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle + Dilraj Kaur

Lyrics

balram ne bahut samjhaaya
balram ne bahut samjhaaya
par ram ne dhokha khaya
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
jo hona tha ho gaya
jo hona hai ho jaaye  
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

hum pinjre ke panchhi
pinjre ke panchhi
hum pinjare ke panchhi
hum se kitni door bahaarein
door bahaarein
aao mil kar sochen
mil kar sochen
aao mil kar sochen
apni bigdi aap sawaarein
teri saari baatein jaisi lakdi ki talwaarein
lakdi ki talwaarein
lakdi ki talwaar to
talwaar to
mushkil mein kaam na aaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

ho gore mukh pe zulf ye kali
naagan si lehraaye
naagan se rehna door sapere
tujhe das na jaaye
jaan hatheli par jo rakhe
apne pas wo aaye
aane wale aa gaye
aa gaye
dil dhadke haye haye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

jab tak ram ki sena aaye
gaate raho ye gaana
oommm ommmm
jab tak ram ki sena aaye
gaate raho ye gaana
band hai saare darwaaze
har rasta hai anjaana
arre mushkil hai iss rawan ki lanka se bach ke jaana
arre mushkil hai iss rawan ki lanka se bach ke jaana
vinti hai hanuman se
hanuman se
lanka mein aag lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
jo hona tha ho gaya
jo hona hai ho jaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

बलराम ने बहुत समझाया
बलराम ने बहुत समझाया
पर राम ने धोखा खाया
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
जो होना था हो गया
जो होना है हो जाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

हम पिंजरे के पंछी
पिंजरे के पंछी
हम पिंजरे के पंछी
हमसे कितनी दूर बहारें
दूर बहारें
आओ मिल कर सोचें
मिल कर सोचें
आओ मिल कर सोचें
अपनी बिगड़ी आप संवारें
तेरी सारी बातें जैसे लकड़ी की तलवारें
लकड़ी की तलवारें
लकड़ी की तलवार तो
तलवार तो
मुश्किल में काम ना आए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

हो गोरे मुख पे जुल्फ ये काली
नागन सी लहराए
नागन से रहना दूर सपेरे
तुझे डस ना जाये
जान हथेली पर जो रखे
अपने पास वो आए
आने वाले आ गए
आ गए
दिल धड़के हाए हाए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

जब तक राम की सेना आए
गाते रहो ये गाना
ओमम्ममम ओमम्ममम
जब तक राम की सेना आए
गाते रहो ये गाना
बंद हैं सारे दरवाज़े
हर रस्ता है अंजाना
अरे मुश्किल है इस रावण की लंका से बच के जाना
अरे मुश्किल है इस रावण की लंका से बच के जाना
विनती है हनुमान से
हनुमान से
लंका में आग लगाए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
जो होना था हो गया
जो होना है हो जाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 29
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘र’ – रात अंधेरी, गई गई गई ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

वो जब याद आए, बहुत याद आए ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Your own words are so prophetic. The memories of your songs, when they descend upon the mind – it is a deluge that covers the mind.

– – – –

Another day, another letter of the alphabet, and another fabulous duet – Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle.

This song is from the 1960 film ‘Rangeela Raja’. This is a stunt film which was produced under the banner of Diamond Jubilee Films, and was produced and directed by Ismail. The cast of actors in this film is listed as Kumkum, Mahipal, Shashikala, Meenu Mumtaz, Bhagwan, Dhanraj, Jayant, Kammo, Uma Dutt, Chand Burque, Satish, Kesari, Zippy, and Pintu.

Geet Kosh lists eight songs of this film. One song is already showcased here, this is the second song of this film to come on board. All the songs have been penned by Asad Bhopali, and the music director is Pt Shivram. This song sounds like a group dance song which is celebrating some kind of success, emphasized by the opening lines of the song,

raat andheri,    gayi gayi gayi gayi
bhor suhaani,   bhai bhai bhai bhai

Another wonderful memory from the radio listening days. A zippy pace that picks up speed as the song comes to a close. And a quick mixture of singing voices and the chorus. Delectable creation. 🙂

“Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) was Directed by Durgesh Kumar and Santoshi for Durgesh Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Kumkum, Kamaljeet, Mumtaz, Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Mohan Choti, Murad, aruna Irani, Johny Whisky, Kamal Mehra, Parshuram, Mirza Musharraf, Tuntun, Balam, Kathana, Jerry, Jankidas, Baroon Van Hizi, Kingkong etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it and most were qawwaalis as can be guessed from the title. Ten songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

The eleventh and final song from the movie was apparently not included in the movie. Only its audio was released and this song is available.

Despite the song being available, I was not taking it up because this song was a duet with Rafi’s voice in it. Seeing that Sudhir jee was covering Rafi duets in his marathon series “Rafi duets अ से ह तक “, I was not taking chances because in the past I have posted songs that Sudhir Jee had reserved for some special occasions and with my memory being what it is, I had forgotten about that.

So, I double checked. Sudhir Jee is now onto the letter य while this duet from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) begins with an earlier letter viz प which was already covered in the previous post. So this song was “safe” to be covered. 🙂

So, here is the eleventh and final song from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

Here are the details of the earlier ten songs from the movie:-

This song, the eleventh and final song was excluded from the movie as far as I can tell. In case it was picturised, it would have been on the lead pair of Kamaljeet and Kumkum.

With this song,all the songs of “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
PS-It has pointed out by Mr Sadanand Kamath that the video of this song is available. And the song is indeed picturised on the lead pair.

Song-Pyaar ki hasraten khaaq mein mil gayin (Qawwaali Ki Raat)(1964) Singer-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics

pyaar ki hasraten khaaq mein mil gayin
pyar ki hasraten khaaq mein mil gayin
do kadam chalke do humsafar jal gaye
do kadam chalke do humsafar jal gaye
zindagi aag banti hai jis mod par
zindagi aag banti hai jis mod par
donon raahi usi mod par jal gaye

do kadam chalke do humsafar jal gaye

aisi bijli giri shaakh gulzaar par
aashiyaana bachaaya to par jal gaye
aashiyaana bachaaya to par jal gaye

kuchh na baaqi raha zindagi mein meri
kuchh na baaqi raha zindagi mein meri
ek dhuaan reh gaya dil jigar jal gaye
do kadam chal ke do humsafar jal gaye

aah roki to seene se shole uthhe
ban gaye ashq aankhon mein chingaariyaan
ban gaye ashq aankhon mein chingariyaan
do mohabbat bhare dil sulagne lage
yaani do aarzuon ke ghar jal gaye

do kadam chal ke do humsafar jal gaye

ashqe gham chashme nam se ye keh kar dhale
ashqe gham chashme nam se ye keh kar dhale
pyaar ki aag mein yoon na koi jale
pyaar ki aag mein yoon na koi jale
aatishe ishq mein koi shola nahin
aatishe ishq mein koi shola nahin
phir bhi is aag mein ghar ke ghar jal gaye

do kadam chal ke do humsafar jal gaye
donon raahi usi mod par jal gaye

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 28
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘य’ – ये भीगी भीगी रात गगन पर तारों की बारात ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

हम बेखुदी में तुमको पुकारे चले गए ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Seems to be like another life time, that we have been waiting, and calling out for you, in the wilderness of nowhere. Alas, but it is not to be. . .

– – – –

Really spoilt for choices with the letter ‘य’. And I settle for this delightful twosome of a song – Geeta Dutt with Rafi Sb. The film is an obscure ‘Doctor Z’ from 1959. Produced and directed by Jaal, the films comes from the banner of Baliwala Films, Bombay. The star cast of this film is listed as Shakeela, Mahipal, Heeralal, Helen, Vinod Diwani, Krishna Kumari, Sundar, Mirza Musharraf, Dalpat, Tuntun, Nasreen, Shetty, Bhudo Advani, Homi, Rusi, Bismillah, Baburao Pehalwan, Radheshyam, Rafiq, Hanuman, Bala Ram, Dhondu, MK Hasan, Karandiker, and Sheetal Kumar.

The film has total of eight songs listed, out which, two songs, as per the Geet Kosh, are probably not released on gramophone records. The songs have been written by Akhtar Romani, and the music is by Manohar. This Manohar is the blind music director Manohar Lal Sonik, who was the senior partner in the team of music director duo – Sonik-Omi.

One song of this film is already present on our blog. It was posted on 9th Nov, 2011. And today, after almost full seven years, the second song of this film finds its place here.

The singing voices are of Rafi Sb, accompanied by Geeta Dutt. A delightful duet presented as a conversation between lovers, it is quite a treat to hear to this song. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ye Bheegi Bheegi Raat Gagan Par Taaron Ki Baraat  (Doctor Z) (1959) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Akhtar Romani, MD – Manohar
Geeta Dutt + Mohammed Rafi

Lyrics 

ye bheegi bheegi raat
gagan par taaron ki baraat
chali kis paar hai
zara dil par rakh kar haath
bata de aise mein ye baat
ke kitna pyaar hai
ye bheegi bheegi raat
gagan par taaron ki baraat
chali kis paar hai
zara dil par rakh kar haath
bata de aise mein ye baat
ke kitna pyaar hai

o ho ho ho ho ho
o ho ho ho ho ho
o ho ho ho ho ho
ho ho..oo ho ho..oo

bhatke huye musaafir
manzil ko pa hi gaye
ulfat ke do safeene
saahil pea aa hi gaye
bhatke huye musaafir
manzil ko pa hi gaye
ulfat ke do safeene
saahil pea aa hi gaye
main kaise kahoon ye baat
ke aata sapnon mein har raat
koi dildaar hai
zara dil par rakh kar haath
bata de aise mein ye baat
ke kitna pyaar hai

jitna haseen hai mausam
utna hi tu bhi haseen
jee chaahe aaj ruk jaaye
saara zamaana yahin
jitna haseen hai mausam
utna hi tu bhi haseen
jee chaahe aaj ruk jaaye
saara zamaana yahin
de haat mein mere haath
ke chhoote ab na kabhi ye saath
yahi iqraar hai
ye kitni badi hai baat
ke tujhko pyaar hai mere saath
ke du dildaar hai
zara dil par rakh kar haath
bata de aise mein ye baat
ke kitna pyaar hai

ye bheegi bheegi raat
gagan par taaron ki baraat
chali kis paar hai
aa haa
zara dil par rakh kar haath
bata de aise mein ye baat
ke kitna pyaar hai

o ho ho ho ho ho
o ho ho ho ho ho
o ho ho ho ho ho
ho ho..oo ho ho..oo
ho ho..oo ho ho..oo
ho ho..oo ho ho..oo

ये भीगी भीगी रात
गगन पर तारों की बारात
चली किस पार है
ज़रा दिल पर रख कर हाथ
बता दे ऐसे में ये बात
के कितना प्यार है
ये भीगी भीगी रात
गगन पर तारों की बारात
चली किस पार है
ज़रा दिल पर रख कर हाथ

ओ हो हो हो हो हो
ओ हो हो हो हो हो

उल्फ़त के दो सफीने
साहिल पे आ ही गए
भटके हुये मुसाफिर
मंज़िल को पा ही गए
उल्फ़त के दो सफीने
साहिल पे आ ही गए
मैं कैसे कहूँ ये बात
के आता सपनों में हर रात
कोई दिलदार है
ज़रा दिल पर रख कर हाथ
बता दे ऐसे में ये बात
के कितना प्यार है

जितना हसीं है मौसम
उतना ही तू भी हसीं
जी चाहे आज रुक जाये
सारा ज़माना यहीं
जितना हसीं है मौसम
उतना ही तू भी हसीं
जी चाहे आज रुक जाये
सारा ज़माना यहीं

के छूटे अब ना कभी ये साथ
यही इक़रार है
ये कितनी बड़ी है बात
के तुझको प्यार है मेरे साथ
के तू दिलदार है
ज़रा दिल पर रख कर हाथ
बता दे ऐसे में ये बात

ये भीगी भीगी रात
गगन पर तारों की बारात

बता दे ऐसे में ये बात

ओ हो हो हो हो हो
ओ हो हो हो हो हो

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 27
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

’ – महफिल में तेरे हुस्न का दीवाना कौन है ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

हम इंतज़ार करेंगे ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Knowing it is futile – no one returns from where you have gone. But still, the heart knows no other emotion. And so we will wait, till whenever we can.

– – – –

This duet song from the 1962 film ‘Rooplekha’ is a real treat. It is vintage Rafi, sung with that signature ‘खुमारी’ and ‘मस्ती’, the inimitable flavors of sounds that only Rafi Sb could render. When I came across this song while searching for a duet of Rafi Sb starting with ‘म’, I was quite excited. The emotion that ran through my mind was the oft represented thought – how come this song is not yet on the blog. Quite a popular favorite from the radio listening days, it is a wonder that this gem has kept away from our blog. And not that this film is new here – already two songs of this film are showcased here. Both solos, one is a wonderful treat from Suman Kalyanpur – “Tu Ne Chura Li Mere Maathe Ki Bindiya” and a bhajan in the voice of Rafi Sb – “Bahjan Bina Baawre”.

Checking out the Geet Kosh, we find that three films with this same title have been released – in 1934, 1939 and 1962. This 1962 film is produced under the banner of Prithvi Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Mohammed Hussain. The six songs in this film are all written by Farooque Kaiser. And the wonderful compositions are from the mind of Nashaad. Regulars will recall that Nashaad is the pseudonym for Shaukat Ali, aka Shaukat Hussain Dehlavi. His first break in Hindi films as a music director was with the film ‘Naghma’ of 1953. And this break came about in very interesting circumstances. Nakshab Jarchvi, the producer director of this film was trying to engage Naushad Sb as the music director for his film. Certain circumstances prevailed and Naushad Sb declined the offer. Somewhat piqued by this response, Nakshab Sb brought in Shaukat Ali, who was working as assistant music director till then, and gave him charge of the music department for his film. And he also suggested to use the pseudonym ‘Nashaad’, in a likely riposte to Naushad Sb’s refusal.

Coming to the star cast of this film, the Geet Kosh lists the following actors Mahipal, Vijaya Chaudhary, Sundar, Raj Adeeb, Shaam Kumar, Krishna Kumari, Amar, Jeevankala, Madhumati, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Mohammad Ali, Ghani, Arvind Kumar, Dhondu, Balram, Nazeer Kashmiri, Shri Bhagwan, Pandey Ji, Ravikant, Shamu, Kathana, and Sujata.

On screen, this song is presented as a mujra dance song – a peculiar one – in that the ‘saazinda’ (musician) accompanying the dancer is leading the singing. We see Mahipal playing the sitar and Vijaya Chaudhry doing the dance sequence. There are two other characters in this scenario. One lady, who I guess is Krishna Kumari, and a gentleman I am not able to place a name to the face. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm / correct / add the names for these two artists.

The duet is an exchange of queries and responses between the two artists. Very interesting words, and a very dear composition. The renditions, of course, Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur – one of their best duets in my opinion. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Mehfil Mein Tere Husn Ka Deewaana Kaun Hai  (Rooplekha) (1962) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Farooque Kaiser, MD – Nashaad

qayaamat na ho kahin
darte hain tum ko hum se
mohabbat na ho kahin
haaye
khul jaaye ye bhi raaz ke
deewaana kaun hai
khul jaaye ye bhi raaz ke deewaana kaun hai
deewaana ho ji
parwaana ho ji
mastaana kaun hai
ye shamma jaanti hai parwaana kaun hai
mehfil mein tere husn ka deewaana kaun hai
