Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 16

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah yes, this one too. This iconic and popular song from the 1969 film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, reappeared in a shorter version in the 1972 film ‘Baazigar’. Albeit the use of this song is somewhat casual, and does not seem to fulfill any purpose, symbolic or otherwise. Seems like a time filler, as one goes through the initial part of the film.

The original from the film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ is a quite a well picturized song, with the reality of the situation moving into a surreal dream where the real village people performing the song are replaced by the hero and heroine, in heroine’s mind. All the songs of this film became very popular, and did contribute significantly to the rising graph of Jeetendra as a hero.

Fast forward three years later. The film ‘Baazigar’ in 1972, was a potential launch vehicle for Roopesh Kumar (cousin brother of actress Mumtaz), as a hero. He had made his debut in 1965, in supporting roles, both as a comic villain and in character riles. This was the first, and likely the only film in which he appears in the role of a hero.

Roopesh’s real name was Abbas Farashahi. He was born in Bombay on 16th Jan, 1946 (okay, just a week back was his birth anniversary, would have been 74). His father, Ali Asgar Farashahi had a very good restaurant and bakery business.  However, being involved in dramatics in school and college, he was more interested to make a career in films. With some support from his cousin sister Mumtaz, he started working in small supporting roles. His first appearance is in the film ‘Tarzan and King Kong’ in 1965.

He appeared in over 120 films from 1965 through 1995. The list of his films do make an impressive reading. Here is a partial list of his films from the period till 1980 – ‘Sapno Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Aadmi aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ (1969), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971), ‘Andaaz’ (1971), ‘Raampur Ka Lakshman’ (1972), ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Prabhat’ (1973), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Insaaniyat’ (1974), ‘Zinda Dil’ (1975), ‘Nagin’ (1976), ‘Karm’ (1977), ‘Dildaar’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), ‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979), ‘The Great Gambler’ (1979), ‘Lok Parlok’ (1979), ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) etc.

Hmm. . . interesting to note that he also appeared in ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, the original film for the song being presented today.

He also produced and directed two films – ‘Hai Meri Jaan’ (1991) and ‘Meri Aan’ (1993).

Roopesh Kumar passed away quite unexpectedly, at a young age of 49. He was attending the Filmfare awards program of 1995. He suffered a severe heart attack while at the program, and passed away on way to the hospital.

The song presented today is picturized as a game being played at a picnic. This is a picnic with a difference. The only participants are the leading lady, Vijaylalitha and her pet animals – a horse named Chetak and a dog named Tommy. These are the screen names of these pets. Their real names, as per the credits are Joker and Johny respectively. The song is being played on a gramophone, and the game – well you can view it in the accompanying video. The song seems to have been edited, as it appears to end abruptly after playing one full stanza and getting into the start of the second stanza.

Ah yes, this 1972 film makes its debut on our blog today.

Overall, a very casual re-use in my opinion.

Song – Aa Mere Humjoli Aa, Khelen Aankh Micholi Aa  (Baazigar) (1972) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Chorus

Blog Day : 4206 Post No. : 15396

Today 23rd January (2020) is the 123rd birth anniversary of one of the greatest ‘sons of this soil’, a great visionary, courageous and brave leader Subhash Chandra Bose.

On this occasion, today I am presenting a song from the ‘1966’ movie ‘Netaji Subhashchandra Bose-1966’.

If we look at the movies made on the life of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, we have the following movies represented on the blog so far.

SNo Movie Year of the movie
01 Pehla Aadmi 1950
02 Netaji Subhashchandra Bose 1966
03 Subhash Chandra 1978
04 Bose- The forgotten hero 2004

Other films inspired by Subhash Bose and INA are,

  1. ’Samadhi’ (1950) was inspired from Indian National Army and it had couple of patriotic songs too).
  2. ‘Ami Subhash Bolchi’ (2011) (Bangla) – a film about a social movement in Bengal inspired by the vision of Subhash Bose (something akin to ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ (2006)).
  3. ‘Raag Desh’ (2017) – a film about the famous Red Fort trials in which the leading soldiers of INA, Colonel Prem Sahgal, Colonel Gurbaksh Singh Dhillon, and Major General Shah Nawaz Khan, were tried by the British Govt. for sedition and waging war against the British Empire. They were sentenced to deportation for life, but the public outcry in favor of these soldiers was so great that the British were forced to release all the defendants. The protest slogan of ‘Sehgal-Dhillon-Shah Nawaz’ became very popular amongst the masses.
  4. ‘Gumnaami’ (2019) – a film based on the Mukherjee Commission Hearings during 1999 to 2005, which investigated the question whether Subhash Bose had died in a plane crash in Taiwan (in 1946).

*(I would request our knowledgeable readers to correct and suggest if  there are any other movies that may have been missed above).

‘Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’ was directed by Hemen Gupta for ‘Adarshlok, Bombay’.

The cast of this movie included Abhi Bhattacharya, Jaimala, Bipin Gupta, Ulhas, Maxworth, Padma Devi, Niranjan Sharma, N.R. Madholkar, Leela Mishra, Rajeshwar Dayal, Sudarshan Sethi, Mouni Chatterjee, Kant Kumar, Paresh Kumar, Munshi Niyamatulla, Kishan Raj, Mohan Kaul, Jaisingh, Sawant, Kamal Kapoor, Moore, Vulga, Supariwala, Panna Kapoor, Harry, Pears and Kelli.

This movie had five songs penned by Kavi Pradeep and composed to music by Salil Chaudhary. Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Savita Bannerjee, Hemant Kumar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier. Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog. As per HFGK this song is sung by Mohd Rafi, Hemant Kumar and chorus.

As mentioned above lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep and music is by Salil Chaudhary.

Let us listen to this song and pay our tributes and salute to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and his contribution in the freedom struggle of India.

Hullo Atuldom

Listening to music is a pastime. And if it is film songs – all the more good. Plus if it is HFM I couldn’t ask for more- anyone who knows me knows this. Fellow atulites included. Followers of the blog also are aware that “vividh bharati” the radio station, is my reminder diary.

So soon as I heard the program remembering Parveen Babi – of the lustrous hair- I looked for hitherto unposted songs and found many possibilities.

I have zeroed in on a song where she is romancing Jeetendra or trying to stop him from getting into trouble. I must admit that I know two songs from this movie, one of which, a Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhonsle duet Naye puraane saal mein ek raat baaki has been posted by Sudhirji in 2014.

The movie “Raksha” had a total of five songs, the handiwork of the trusted pair of RD Burman- Anand Bakshi. The movie was supposed to be a spy movie with Jeetendra’s character having the code name ‘Agent 116’. For added measure Parveen Babi also had two names – Chanda and Bijli. Today we have the Jeetendra lip syncing to Mohd. Rafi and Asha is the female playback.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi on the occasion of her anniversary.


Song-Main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (Raksha)(1981) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

main chalta Hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do

yakeen karo kisi tarah
milenge kal issi tarah
yakeen karo kisi tarah
milenge kal issi tarah
kal toh kitni door hai
mera dil majboor hai
thehero thodi der toh
dil ka haal sunane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do

lallaalala laalalalala
laalalalalala
abhi mile abhi chale
rahe mujhe bade gile
abhi mile abhi chale
rahe mujhe bade gile

sab gile mit jaayenge
jab gale lag jaayenge
itni door baithe ho
thoda paas toh aane do
hmmm hmmm rurururururu
main chalta hoon mujhe jaane do (rururururu)

khuli hawa haseen Samaa
ruko zara chale kahaan
khuli hawa haseen Samaa
ruko zara chale kahaan

ek toh kaam zaroori hai
dooje kuchch majboori hai
donon baatein jhoothi hain
yeh hain saaf bahaane do
rurururururu

main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do
chale jaana
honthon pe dil ki baat aane do

o main chalta hoon
mujhe jaane do
laa laa laa la la la la laa

Mohammed Rafi : The incomparable (II) – Song No. 15
———————————————————————–
It is very much true even today that the title of ‘Sone ki chidiya” suits India very well. This guileless person, named Mohammad Rafi is one of the genuine golden feathers of this ‘Sone ki Chidiya”

“Sona” in material terms as we all know is Gold, as in precious metal. And in our country traditionally and religiously Gold is treated as Goddess Laxmi. Other cultures in the world treat it as a precious metal and metal alone. But we in india have been revering “Gold” as much more than a costly metal. It is equated with wealth and prosperity. If a percentage of the country’s household are super rich, a bigger percentage of households are comprising of the so called middle classes and all of these people have amassed gold reserves in the families. I have seen women, mostly housewives saving up to buy gold jewelry. My own mother used to save up to years, so that she could get some small gold jewellery pieces. My mother’s savings habit has saved many a rainy day, if we believe the stories she tells of this event or that event. Many times the relatives will be in trouble and some or the other need will arise in the household and her savings or even gold jewellery was the only thing to be cashed.

It boggles the imagination to ascertain the quantum of gold stashed away in small or minute holdings even, over crores of households. And most of it will hopefully be useful in their hours of need. If a small token of wealth is not useful in saving a life or a way of paying a child’s school fees, than it is not ‘laxmi’, not really.

Southern India and it’s cultural make up is famous for flaunting its obsession with gold. Temples and shrines all over the country are reportedly laden with gold and jewelry, naturally donated by the devotees.

Since ancient times, the regions of present day india were part of the larger region broadly known as ‘Hind’ or ‘Hindustan’. This region is sometimes described as ‘sone ki chidiya’ in legends and ‘daastaan’. By now even if it has broken into many pieces and fragments, with conflict and strife spread over the whole region, with malice towards one and all, inside these fragmented nation states and elsewhere, it is worth reminding ourselves of the history and cultural heritage of our ancestors. A sense of preservation needs to prevail in our collective deeds, if this flourishing civilized society, invaded for centuries on end, and yet surviving all trials and tribulations, because of its thinkers, philosophers, poets, musicians and sant mahatma’s, is to continue the journey into eternity. Languages, arts and cultural values and music has always been the backbone of this heritage.

Some months ago I had written one article in hindi titled “sone ki chidiya” for the office magazine. I am including that article here for the readers benefit and contemplation.

– सोने की चिड़िया –
मकानी हूँ के आज़ाद –ए-मकां हूँ
जहां में हूँ के ख़ुद सारा जहाँ हूँ
वो अपनी लामकानी में रहें मस्त
मुझे इतना बता दें मैं कहाँ हूँ
कुछ दिन पहले मैं अपनी बहन के साथ एक मॉल में गयी । वहाँ घूमते हुए और दुकानों की चकाचौंध देखते हुए अचानक मेरी बहन जो वर्षों से गल्फ में बसी है, कहने लगी की यह बात बहुत उपयुक्त है की यह देश पिछले दो से तीन सौ सालों में दोबारा से ‘सोने की चिड़िया’ बन गया।
प्राचीन काल में हमारा भारत देश सोने की चिड़िया के नाम से मशहूर था यह सब तो हम ने किताबों में बचपन से पढ़ा है। यही वजह थी की हजारों सालों से इस सर – ज़मीन पर विदेशी हुकमुरानों ने बार बार आक्रमण किए । कुछ लोगों ने लूट मार की तो कुछ लोगों ने यहां की तहजीब में रच बस कर इसे और निखारा और संवारा और इस धरती का ‘सोने की चिड़िया’ खिताब को सदियों से बने रहने में अपनी अपनी भूमिका निभाई।

यह भी सम्झना आवश्यक है की ये वो ज़माना था जब सब तरफ ‘ माइट इस राइट ‘ का चलन था , जो कोई भी अपनी भारी भरकम सेना ले कर किसी दूसरे के राज्य पे आक्रमण कर फतेह कर ले वो राज्य उस का हो गया । और इस तरह इस फतेह किए हुए राज्याओं पर राज्य बनाए रखने के लिए ‘फ़िज़िकल माइट’ का बहुत महत्व होता था ।

ऊपर मैंने आक्रमण करने वाले हुकमूरानों के संदर्भ में न चाहते हुए या यूं कहें की बड़ा हिचकिचाते हुए विदेशी शब्द का प्रयोग किया। उस काल में तो हर क्षेत्र के लोग अपने आस पास के इलाक़ो के बाहर हर जगह को विदेश ही समझते होंगे । जबकि यह देश और विदेश की कल्पना उन्नीसवी / बीसवीं सदी में ही जागृत हो कर पूरे विश्व में फैल गयी और एक प्रकार का विभाजन हुआ और अलग अलग ‘nation states’ का चलन चला, चल क्या निकला , पूरा विश्व छोटे छोटे टुकड़ों में बट गया। कहीं मज़हब, कहीं भाषा, कहीं संस्कृति तो कहीं कुछ और, हर एक मुल्क अपनी अपनी सीमाओं में बंद हो गया । यह कैसा सोचों का, विचारों को, नदियों का, हवाओं का, पहाड़ों का, खेतों का, शहराहों का, शहर-क़स्बों का, तंग घाटियों का, द्वीपों का, क़िस्से कहानियों का, गीतों और रागों का, और जाने क्या क्या कुछ….. बटवारा हो गया । साथ ही बंटवारा हुआ प्राकृतिक संसाधनों का और कुदरत की दी हुई बेशुमार नयमतों का । बट गईं मानवता की धार्णएं और 21वी सदी में तो ऐसा लगता है की यह धरनाएं सिर्फ किताबों में सीमित हैं। पिछले युग के राजे महाराजे अपनी ताक़त के बल बूते राज्य करते और आज भी नेशन स्टेट्स अपना ‘पॉलिटिकल माइट ‘ इस्तेमाल कर न सिर्फ स्टेट पर बल्कि दूसरे स्टेट्स की प्रकृतिक संसाधनों पर भी अपना नियंत्रण बनाते हैं और उसे बनाए रखने के लिए हर एक मानव्य/अमानव्य हत्यारों का इस्तेमाल करने से बिलकुल संकोच नहीं करते। और इसी से ज़मीर के साथ conflict वाली स्टीथि भी है की जो कोई कार्य या विचार धारणा मेरे लिए सही है तो वही सोच और धारणा दूसरे के लिए गलत है । मुझे नहीं लगता की इस सृष्टि की रचना का उद्देश्य यह होगा की मानविक समाज इस तरह देशों, प्रान्तों ,भाषाओं और इन सब के प्रेम की आड़ में अपने अपने अहंकारों की, आत्महित के दायरे में, और चक्रव्युह में फंस कर, एक दूसरे से सदैव संघर्ष और तुछ लड़ाईयाँ लड़ता रहे। क्यूंकी आज भी जब हम आपस के संघर्ष को , अपने नजरियों का दायरा बड़ा कर के देखें तो यह सब तुछ ही हैं।
आज मानवता पूरी तरह से बटी हुई है । यह वो मनुष्य जाति है जो इस ब्रह्माण्ड में ईश्वर की सर्वश्रेष्ठ रचना है । सारी की सारी रचनाओं में सर्वश्रेष्ठ होना क्या होता है ये शायद हम मनुष्यों को रास न आया।

ऐसी अंतर्राश्त्र्य अनुशासन तथा सामाजिक तंत्र के चलते किसी एक व्यक्ति, कोन्सोर्टिउम, कॉर्पोरेट, या व्यवस्था या कोई नेशन-स्टेट को सोने की चिड़िया बने रहने में जो मनव्य मूल्यों के त्याग की आवश्यकता थी वो तो हमारी अर्थव्यवस्था कर ही चुकी है और इस की मानवता ने भारी क़ीमत भी चुकाई है और चुका रहें हैं हम सब ही व्यक्तिगत सतह पर। सिर्फ यह है की इस क्षति का और उस के परिणामों का आभास कुछ ही लोग कर पा रहे हैं।

एक और अनुभव जो पिछले कुछ महीनों में मुझे छू गया , उस का विवरण यहाँ करना उपयुक्त है।

मैं मुंबईकर हूँ और यही पली बढ़ी होने के कारण मुझे यहाँ के विद्यालयों के प्रति लगाव है। मेरे माता पिता के बाकी परिवार के सभी लोग बेलगाम (कर्नाटक) में रचे बसे हैं और हर तरफ फैल गए हैं। मेरे छोटे मामा के बेटे ने कुछ वर्ष पूर्व बेलगाम से पढ़ाई पूरी की थी, और नेत्र विशेषज्ञ के रूप में केरल में प्रशिक्षण कर रहा है। मैं ने उसे फोन किया यह पुछने की मैं मेरे बेटे के लिए मुंबई के अलावा कौन से कॉलेज में प्रवेश को प्राथमिकता दूँ। सारी औपचारिकताएँ समाप्त होते ही मैं ने मुद्दे की बात छेड़ दी । मेरी सारी बात सुनते ही पहली बात जो मेरे ममेरे भाई ने कही वो यह थी की आप अपने बेटे को बेलगाम में क्यूँ नहीं दाखिला दिलाते? मैं इस प्रश्न को सुन परेशान हो उठी, की यह सवाल मेरे दिल-ओ-दिमाग में दूर दूर तक नहीं आया। मैं ने अपने लहजे के पूरे आश्चर्य को बिलकुल भी न छिपाते हुए कहा की मुंबई और महाराष्ट्र में इतने अच्छे और नामचीन कॉलेज के होते हुए भी मैं मेरे बेटे के लिए बेलगाम का कॉलेज क्यूँ चुनुंगी । पर वो तो बिलकुल भी प्रभावित न हुआ मेरी बात से और अपने बिन्दु पर टिका रहा और कहा “क्यूँ बेलगाम की जीएमसी तो कर्नाटक के चोटी के 3 कॉलेज में है अच्छे कॉलेज की शिक्षा से काफ़ी फर्क पड़ता है “ । मैं ने कहा की ऐसा होगा लेकिन जब मैं मुंबई निवासी हूँ और यहाँ के 5 में से 4 कॉलेज पूरे देश की किसी भी सूची में चोटी के पंद्रह या बीस के अंदर ही आती हैं तो बेलगाम के कॉलेज के बारे मुझे विचार की भी आवश्यकता नहीं लगती।

इतनी बातचित के बाद भी मेरा ममेरा भाई मेरे दृष्टिकोण को नहीं समझ पा रहा था, तो अंत में मैं ने उस से कह दिया के वो अपने मित्र मण्डल में जो की महाराष्ट्र में पढे हैं उन से सलाह कर के मुझे यहां के कॉलेज की आपस में श्रेणी की सही सही जानकारी दे दे ताकि मेरे बेटे को उस के श्रेणी के अनुकूल मुंबई या मुंबई के बाहर के कॉलेज में प्रवेश मिल सके।

इस वार्तालाप के बाद मैं सोच में पड़ गयी कि वो एक चिकित्सीय व्यवसायिक होने के बावजूद क्यूँ नहीं समझ पा रहा या मान रहा की मैं मुंबई में हूँ जो की हमारे देश की दूसरी बडी जगह है चिकित्सीय शिक्षा के लिए, दिल्ली के बाद । फिर जब सोच की इंतेहा पर समझ आया की वो तो उस का दृष्टिकोण था । ऐसा बिल्कुल नहीं था की वह मेरी बात समझने की क्षमता नहीं रखता । लेकिन यह दोष उसके दृष्टिकोण का था जो उस को उसकी सोच के दायरे से बाहर देखने ही नहीं देता। क्यूंकी वो खुद बेलगाम से हैं और पढ़ाई पूरी वही की और अब भी वहीं जा के बसने की कामना करता है, और उसे अपने शहर और कॉलेज के प्रति बहुत गर्व भी है । यह सब जब मेरे दिमाग में और यादों के पर्दों से बाहर आया, तो प्रतीत हुआ की उस का नज़रिया उस को रोक रहा था मेरे नजरिये को देखने से । उस की सोच की सीमा वहीं तक सीमित है और वो उस से आगे देख नहीं पा रहा।

यही काम तो है सीमाओं का जो की मानवता को बांधने में, इस की मानसिक रूप से मर्यादित करने में सफल हो गयी हैं। सोच की सीमाएं, चाह की सीमाएं, अनजानी चीजों को देखने परखने में संकोच और ऐसी सीमित करने वाली मानसिक पीड़ाओं से हमारा समाज और सामाजिक-तंत्र बंधा हुआ है। हर कोई अपनी सोच और अपने दृष्टिकोण के आगे, बाहर या आस पास और उस से दूर पनपने वाली बेहतर और उच्च चीजों या बातों को अपनी पहुँच से बाहर पता है। ऐसा क्यूँ है ?

और देखिये क्या कहते हैं अललमा इकबाल :

सितारों से आगे जहां और भी हैं ।
अभी इश्क़ के इम्तेहान और भी हैं ।
तिही ज़िंदगी से नहीं ये फ़ज़ाएं
येहां सैकड़ों कारवाँ और भी हैं ।
कनाअत न कर आलम-ए-रंग-ओ-बु पर
चमन और भी हैं आशियाँ और भी हैं।
अगर खो गया एक नशेमन तो क्या ग़म
मुक़ामात-ए-आह-व-फुगाँ और भी हैं।
तू शाहीन है परवाज़ है तेरा काम
तेरे सामने आसमां और भी हैं ।
इसी रोज़-व-शब में उलझ कर न रेह जा
के तेरे ज़मान-व-मकां और भी हैं ।
गए दिन के तन्हा था मैं अंजुमन में
येहां अब मेरे राज़दान और भी हैं ।

Also remembering this song :

jahaan daal par sone ki chidiya karti hai baseraa
woh bhaarat desh hai meraa

The Rafi song featured here is from the film ‘Johar in Kashmir’. The word ‘Johar’ means, a jewel or a gem and pearl. ‘jawahrat’ – is a word for collection of precious jewels, diamonds, pearls etc. ‘Johar’ also means talent or stupendous ability etc.

This song is written by Indeevar and composed by Kalyanji Anandji. The tune is reminding me of Jis ka koi nahin uska to Khuda hai yaaron from Laawaris.

Rafi sahab has rendered this song with his customary gusto. ‘Gusto’ is a word that Atulji used a lot in respect of Rafi songs years ago.

The message in the song is quite apparent. The I S Johar is the dervaish, giving sermons to all and sundry that the day of judgement is not far and none of the oppressors (those committing excesses on fellow beings) will be forgiven and allowed to go scot free.

Essentially what the dervaish is doing is trying to warn the oppressors to be afraid of God almighty and his wrath, ask for his forgiveness while there is still time. It is like trying to help the oppressors, by convincing them to stop the bad deeds and obtain forgiveness from the God Almighty.

Like this hadith:

Allah’s messenger (pbuh) said, ‘Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one.”
People asked “O Allah’s Messenger! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?”
The Prophet said, “By preventing him from oppressing others.”

Blog Day : 4178 Post No. : 15354

Yesterday (25 december 2019) was the birth centenary of Naushad (25 december 1919- 5 May 2006). The special occasion called for a post but my internet connection let me down and that day ended up becoming a dot day- the third such day in the year.

According to my calculations Naushad had composed music for 601 songs in 64 Hindi movies.

61 out of these 64 movies are represented in the blog. The first four movies where Naushad was the music director are “Prem Nagar”(1940), “Darshan”(1941), “Maala”(1941) and “Nayi Duniya” (1942). All available songs of these movies are covered in the blog but still some songs (unavailale as of now) are not posted so these movies are unYIPPEED. After that, each and every Naushad movie beginning from “Sharda”(1942) till “Ganwaar”(1970) are already YIPPEED in the blog ! Moreover, two more movies viz “Aaina”(1974) and “Dharam Kaanta”(1982) are also YIPPEED.

The only Naushad movies (apart from the four movies of 1940s), whose songs are not fully covered in the blog are “Paakeeza”(1971), “Taangewaala”(1972), “My Friend”(1974), “Sunahra Sansaar”(1975), “Chambal Ki Raani”(1979), “Love and God”(1986), “Aawaaz De kahaan Hai”(1990), “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993), “Guddu”(1995) and “Taj Mahal”(2005).

Overall 535 out of 601 Naushad compositions are already showcased in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Taangewaala”(1972). This song is sung by Rafi. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The song is picturised as a Tanga song, with Rajendra Kumar playing the Taangewaala and driving the taanga holding a small child his arms. It is very risky, according to present day safety standards. Rajendra Kumar would get fined heavily and his tonga driver licence cancelled by traffic police if he was to operate in present day India. 🙂

This song is an appropriate song for the occasion because Rafi too had his birth anniversary on 24 december, one day prior to Naushad’s birth anniversary.


Song-Thhap thhup thhip ki taal pe mera ghoda chaal dikhaaye(Taangewaala)(1972) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

Thhap thhup thhip ki taal pe mera ghoda chaal dikhaaye
lipat lipat ke taange ke sang raah guzarti jaaye
Thhap thhup thhip ki taal pe mera ghoda chaal dikhaaye
lipat lipat ke taange ke sang raah guzarti jaaye
daada daan
daadaa daan
daada daan
daadaa daan

chhail chhabeela ghhoda hai
chaal chale hai saajan ki
chhail chhabeela ghhoda hai
chaal chale hai saajan ki
peechhe peechhe taanga hai
doli jaise dulhan ki
peechhe peechhe taanga hai
doli jaise dulhan ki
zaalim yoon lehraaye ke jaise
koi sharaabi jaaye ae ae
Thhap thhup thhip ki taal pe mera ghoda chaal dikhaaye
lipat lipat ke taange ke sang raah guzarti jaaye
kaaka jee
o maamaa jee
ho zara bach ke
ho zara hatt ke

mandir koi jaata hai
masjid se koi aata hai
mandir koi jaata hai
masjid se koi aata hai
ye dilwaala sabko hi
manzil tak pahunchaata hai
ho ye dilwaala sabko hi
manzil tak pahunchaata hai
taanga mera pyaar bhara dil
jo chaahe aa jaaye
Thhap thhup thhip ki taal pe mera ghoda chaal dikhaaye
lipat lipat ke taange ke sang raah guzarti jaaye
hurr
ho ho

Mohammed Rafi : The Incomparable (II) – Song No. 14
———————————————————

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 95th birth anniversary :

Someone once told me that to become cynical you first had to be an idealist and it was the loss of those ideals that created the disillusionment. But than what is an idealist if not an individual with independent thinking and with the added ability to incorporate diverse ideas. And cynicism is bound to be an integral part of any ideological theory if it seeks to negate the perceived or real concepts of injustice against humanity. Critical analysis of any ideological concepts will possibly make the ideologist a cynic if the said ideology is not perfect enough or as perfect as the ideologist wanted it to be. Cynical person is often very critical of things and situations and their repercussions. While as an idealist, will find a lot to express about the idea rather than focusing on criticism of anything else. That makes cynicism the anti-thesis of idealism. On the other hand, idealism if it seeks to unilaterally implement a social order in a given society is regressive to its intellectual and overall progress as a civilization, since it seeks no introspection and encourages narrow thoughts. Whereas a cynic will look at all things surrounding it and might even be able to look beyond it.

It looks like I want to have my cake and eat it too. Isn’t it ?

Of course, in the complex scheme of nature, nothing is as simple as the above monologue. Things are almost always multi-layered and multi-hued. There is also the matter of view-points, one can put in a blob of prejudices and rigidity. But overall there is also a certain accounting for taste.

I am remembering a word of Urdu which is “zarf”. This word is almost always pre-fixed with “aa’laa” and it becomes “Aa’la Zarf”. Urdu is the language of ‘adab’ i.e. respectfulness and ‘adaab’ i.e. principles. Any student or seeker of these two qualities will end up with the ‘zarf’, which is better taste, with or without the prefix.

It can be as domestic as the idealism of my brother against the cynicism/pragmatism/practicality of my own.

And what does one call people who do not expect anything from anyone? Not loyalty, not goodness of heart, nothing. And these are often the neediest, in terms of attention and togetherness.

This was certainly Rafi sahab. This type of personalities which who have refused to claim any material benefits, were without ambitions or nor made demands on anyone. It must have been so easy to convince him that he has sung so many songs that he can approach the “Guinness book of world record” for singing highest number of songs.

The other day I saw a video on youtube, where the presenter is trying to analyse, what made Mohammed Rafi such an exceptional person. He says this about Rafi Sahab : “ Unhen pata hi nahi thha ke duniya mein sharafat ke ilaawa bhi koyi cheez hai ”. “Sharafat” is too simple a word in my understanding which just is a way of life that includes simplicity, honesty and integrity. But when I googled it, I found nobility, civility, good manners. So my own definition is more integral and personal than google’s definition. To be “Shareef” on personal level is one thing, but to believe that there is no other thing in the world apart from “Sharafat” is another thing altogether. We see quotable quote which say similar things like to think and believe the best about others also. These type of exhortations are common is all social, religious set ups across the board.

To be on that plane where you see the best in others and believe the best about others, discarding all negative notions about anything and anybody, what a blissful state that must be. Rafi Sahab had this inherent quality without trying to achieve it. Truly blessed by the Almighty. Where is the ‘Zarf” in all this ? ‘zarf’ cannot be left behind, because it is also high ideals and values. By all accounts Rafi Sahab never let go of his ‘zarf’, without ever realising those high ideals/values were chronicled widely in literature and philosophies. I hope that he was always giving thanks to the Almighty for these known and unknown blessings. It is a fact that we the ignorant humans are unable to know in what all ways the Almighty has blessed us all.

I am presenting a solo song by Rafi song from the film ‘Mera Geet’ (1946). The composer is Shankar Rao Vyas and Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. My favourite period for Rafi Sahabs songs in actually 1950’s. It is picturised on Susheel Kumar as per the excel sheet. I am aware that huge no of Rafi songs from 50’s are yet to be posted in the blog. There are a few songs from 40’s also are available for posting. For the last few months I was trying to do the series of ‘Dheere dheere” songs and some other newer songs of post-Rafi era.

Hopefully, the new year we will see more songs by Rafi Sahab in the blog,

The audio link available is reasonably clean and clear, unlike most songs of this period.


Song-Aapas ke jhagdon ne dekho Bharat ko barbaad kiya(Mera Geet)(1946) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Shankar Rao Vyas

Lyrics

aapas ke jhagdon ne dekho
bharat ko barbaad kiya
jinka thha mohtaaj zamaana
aaj unhen mohtaaj kiya
aapas mein ham rahen jhagadte
gairon ne aa raaj kiya
jinka thha mohtaaj zamaana
aaj unhen mohtaaj kiya

kabhi mere iss bharaat mein bhi jee
doodh ki nadiyan behti thhi
thhi doodh ki nadiyaan behti thheen
dhan dhaan ke thhe kothhaar bhare
aanand mein duniya rehti thhi
dhan dhaan ke thhe kothhaar bhare
aanand mein duniya rehti thhi
thha kuber ka bhandaar yahaan
heeron ki hoti kheti thhi
mitti ka sonaa bantaa thha
anmol yahaan ki reti thhi
mitti ka sonaa bantaa thha
anmol yahaan ki reti thhi
aaj ussi gulshan ko dekho
kusum(?) ? ? ka raaj kiya
jinka thha mohtaaj zamaana
aaj unhen mohtaaj kiya

kabhi mere gulshan ki daaliyaan
hari bhari lehraati thhin
haan hari bhari lehraati thhin
jhoom jhoom ke sundar kaliyaan
geet suhaane gaati thheen
jhoom jhoom ke sundar kaliyaan

thhaa saraswati ka vaas yahaan
daulat insaan ki daasi thi
thhey roz naye tyohaar yahaan

jinka thha mohtaaj zamaana
aaj unhen mohtaaj kiya

naye taraane sunte sunte
bhool gaye ham apnaa taal
gairon ke sang chalte chalte
bhool gaye ham apni chaal
aish mauj fashion mein phans kar
aaj huaa bhaarat kangaal
aaj huaa bhaarat kangaal
roti roti khade pukaaren
bhaarat maa ke laakhon laal
roti roti khade pukaaren
bhaarat maa ke laakhon laal
roti eee

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 95th birth anniversary :

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is for a song from the 1981 release “Zamaane ko Dikhaana Hai” which was produced and directed by Nasir Hussain. It marked the debut of Padmini Kolhapure as an adult; prior to this she had acted as a child star in numerous movies. The music department was handled by Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman. The songs were play-backed by Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh, Mohd. Rafi and Pancham. Nasir Hussain took a few scenes from his “Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hain” – song on train top; runaway girl from “Caravan” and a song & dance competition inspired from “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”. Additionally, there are multiple songs in a scene as in “Yaadon Ki Baraat” and “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin”.

The story of the movie was very simple and straight: – a rich man, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo (may his soul rest in peace) has two sons Ramesh (Randhir Kapoor in a guest appearance) and Ravi (Rishi Kapoor). Ramesh (the older son) loves and marries a not-so-rich girl and so is banished from the household. All this happens during the absence of the younger Ravi who convinces his dad to forgive his BHAIYYA and sets out to bring his brother back. He finds that his bhaiyya and bhabhi are dead leaving their baby in the care of the bhabhi’s sister Kanchan (Padmini Kolhapure). Now his job is to convince Kanchan of his good intentions, fall in love with her in the process and take her & his nephew home but not before the movie runs through its set of twists and turns. Then there is also the rich man’s bad brother to take care of before the movie comes to an ‘ALL IS WELL THAT ENDS WELL’ close.

The movie had fairly popular songs, two of which are already on the blog. Today’s song is a multi- version song. Also, one of the version forms part of the multiple song set that I mentioned. In one version we have a song and dance competition where Vijay Arora (guest appearance) along with his partner (Aarti Gupta- also in guest appearance) challenges Rishi to the floor. But he is too drunk to get off the chair. So, Padmini takes to the floor sings & moves a leg and Rishi Kapoor joins and they compete with good support from the kids in the audience.

The second version with different stanzas has a drunk Padmini leading the song where the lovers fantasize about their future. We had Mohd. Rafi and Asha Bhosle giving their voices to the two songs.

This movie released about a year after Rafi saab’s death. This post is also to celebrate the 95th birth anniversary of Padmashri Mohd Rafi.
Rafi saab- the man who started his career in films in 1944 with a song under Shyam Sunder’s baton. In the career that spanned 36 years he had lent his voice for all the actors who have graced the silver screen in that time frame. He also appeared on-screen in two films. He was the favourite singer of an entire generation and the following generation too. People loved his Halke-Phulke songs as much as his classical based songs. He had great control on his voice and could go full-throated or soft in the same song. Don’t know why god stopped making singers like him and no matter how much one sounded like Rafi saab they couldn’t sing like him and none of his clones or apes or people who claimed to have been inspired by him reached that height of popularity. And I have heard and read in various places that he was a very humble human being. Like the song which Amitabh sang in a movie (in Mohd. Aziz’s voice) in 1990 “na phankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya, Mohd. Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya”; we, his fans, too miss him.

Wishing that Rafi Saab was still with us and thanking god for giving us such a divine-voiced singer let us enjoy today’s song.

Blog Day : 4163 Post No. : 15335

Today is 97th birthday of the thespian Dilip Kumar. Dilip Kumar, real name Yusuf Khan is the most revered and copied star of this film Industry. The second most inspiring and copied star would be Mohammed Rafi’s voice. Because truly the voice was the star in Rafi Sahab’s case.

Dilip Kumar has had a fruitful and successful career of more than 50 years. This has again been equalled only by Amitabh Bachchan in recent years.

Dilip Kumar is like a lone man standing from the pre-independence era. Again he has only Lata Mangeshkar for company. Also yesteryears actress Nimmi(Born 1933) is giving him company, but she is more than a decade younger than Dilip Kumar. Nimmi was a co-star in significant films in Dilip Kumar’s career, namely Amar, Aan and Deedar. I feel she was type cast in this as the third angle in a triangle.

Dilip Kumar is the true ‘Gulfaam’ of the hindi film world. There was a Urdu Magazine by that name back in the 80’s which I had thought was dedicated to Dilip Kumar, as almost every issue had Dilip Kumar on its cover. I found a very interesting article on “The lost world of Urdu film magazines” in the net, link is here.

Dilip Kumar has often been described as an institution, by many of the later day film stalwarts, especially by the actors.
I have found the genesis of acting style of all the major superstars of hindi film industry can be found in Dilip Kumar’s style of acting.
As per the excel sheet of “Mohammed Rafi songs”, there are roughly 60 songs where Rafi Sahab gave playback for Dilip Kumar. This include one small ditty from Ganga Jamuna and the small snippet of a beautiful song from ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955). The list misses a song from “Kranti” (1981), “chana jor garam baabu” where Rafi Sahab sang just this line for Dilip Kumar :

Mera chana hai apni marzi ka
Ye dushman hai khudgarzi ka
Sar kafan baandh ke nikla hai
Deewana hai ye pagla hai
Mit jaane ko mit jaayega
Aazaad watan kar jaayegaa

I am presenting here the small snippet from the film ‘Insaaniyat”(1955) , which is composed by C. Ramchandra. Lyrics are by Rajendra Krishan and Dilip Kumar is singing this with obvious enjoyment while driving a bullock cart. I tried finding a whole song, which was not available. It may have been recorded as a full- fledged song, but I could not find it on youtube.
Some of my favourite songs by Rafi songs on Dilip Kumar are :

1. Dil mein chhupa ke pyaar ka toofaan le chale
2. maan mera ehsaan arre naadaan
3. Huye ham jinke liye barbaad
4. Meri kahaani bhoolne waale
5. Nain lad jainhe to manwa maa kasak
6. Ude jab jab zulfen teri
7. Ye desh hai veer jawaanon ka
8. Na tu zamaneen ke liye hai

So presenting a small but appealing ditty in Rafi Sahab voice to celebrate Dilip Kumar Sahab’s 97th birthday today.


Song-Gori kar le tu aaj singaar (Insaaniyat)(1955) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rjinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

Hoye ye ye
Ha haa aaa haa
Gori kar le tu aaj singaar
Rasiyaa dwaare khade
Gori kar le tu aaj singaar
Rasiyaa dwaare khade
Gori kar le tu
Ho Gori kar le tu aaj singaar
Rasiyaa dwaare khade
Gori kar le tu aaj singaar
Rasiyaa dwaare khade
Gori kar le tu aaj singaar
Rasiyaa dwaare khade
Ho oo ooo
Ah haa aaa haa

Hullo Atuldom

“Tum Haseen Main Jawaan” produced and directed by Bhappie Soni, released in 1970. The movie had six songs of which three were written by Hasrat Jaipuri, two by Indivar and one by Rajinder Krishan with Shankar Jaikishan as music directors. The cast was headed by Hema Malini and Dharmendra with Helen, Anjali Kadam, Helen, Sulochana Latkar, Rajendranath, Dhumal, Anwar Hussain, Mohan Choti, Iftikhar and PRAN. The story screenplay etc was the handiwork of Sachin Bhowmick. I have seen this movie a long time ago on Television and this is the basic storyline-

Sunil (Dharam) is a merchant navy officer (if I remember right), and has had numerous affairs with a number of attractive young women. One day he meets with beautiful Anuradha (Hema), and falls in love with her. Anuradha too loves him, and she is introduced to his mom (Sulochana). Anuradha has another admirer in Ranjeet (Pran), who informs Sunil and his mom, that Anuradha is deceiving them, and is the mother of a baby boy. Sunil and his mother are shocked, and will have nothing to do with Anuradha. Then the child, in question, is kidnapped, and held for ransom. It is then Sunil comes to know the shocking truth behind the abduction, which will change his life forever.

The movie had other typical masalas in it – like Helen a dancer with a golden heart, a sobbing sister, a family missing their elder daughter etc.

The movie made its blog debut with this song. I heard that song after years today as I was writing this and felt the song reminded me of the song “mere paas aao nazar toh milao” from “Sunghursh” (I don’t mind if people say I am wrong). Atulji followed this up with song. I would like to make it clear here that Dharam is asking Hema’s help to look after the baby that he has found i.e. he wants her to be its Nanny. And let me also add, that it suits Hema’s purpose as she is looking for a safe haven for that child whom she is shielding from its uncle played by Pran.
The last song from this movie came with a post by Rajaji to wish Hema Malini on her 69th birthday.

The song with today’s post is something I love to watch for its cuteness. Hema Malini was supremely sweet, cute etc. in those days (none of which has lessened with age, mind you). On hearing it without the video one would expect Shammi Kapoor enacting it but we have a very handsome Dharam on-screen. And the “jhatakdaar” steps is the cutest part of the song IMHO.

And why are we having this song today ? To wish the He-man, Garam Dharam on his 84th birthday. Dharmendra who started his career in the early 60s is a huge Dilip Kumar fan. He has acted in close to 300 movies in all these years. He was nominated 4 for the best actor Filmfare award but won only the Life Time achievement award in 1997. He is a Padma Bhushan recipient and has been darling of the masses who have lapped up his pairing with Meena Kumari, Nutan, Sharmila Tagore, Asha Parekh and Mala Sinha etc, but nothing to match the pairing with Hema Malini. They did about 35 films together and were romantically paired in 31; of these 20 were hits and 15 flops.

Let us have a song of this super-hit jodi today and say (belatedly) “Happy Birthday Dharmendraji”
