Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ऐ’ – ऐ चाँद तू देना गवाही

कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको कहाँ हो

सिर्फ एक गीतों का ही तो आसरा है॰ ॰ ॰ और कहाँ आवाज़ दें तुमको, ना जाने किस जहान् में चले गए॰ ॰ ॰

We arrive at the sixth episode of this series – a lively duet from the 1963 film ‘Holiday In Bombay’.

As I look at the blog statistics, the number of Rafi Sb – Asha Bhosle duets currently stands at 496, prior to this post. These are strictly duet songs. I make this specific distinction because there are another 20 songs in the blog, in which this pair is accompanied by one or more other voices. They are singing together but essentially not is a pure duet format.

‘Holiday In Bombay’ is a film produced under the banner of Yugchhaaya, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The list of actors in this film is, Shashi Kapoor, Vijaya Chaudhary, Rajendra Nath, Naseem Banu, Dhumal, P Kailash, Ulhas, Randhir, Sulochana Chatterjee, Rajan Haksar, Jeevankala, Ram Kumar, Renu Maakad, Heera Sawant, Kundan, BB Bhalla, D Dileep, Nazeer Kashmiri, Hublikar, and Lakshmi Chhaaya.

Geet Kosh lists eight songs for this film written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Anjaan, PL Santoshi and Anwar Farrukhabaadi. This particular song is penned by Anwar. The music direction is by N Datta.

Although the complete film is available online, the video clip of this song is not. I request other folks who might have seen this film, to please add more information about the picturization of this song.

It would be late 1960s, early 1970s – फिल्में देखने का चस्का चढ़ा था। Did not have much more than some fanciful fancies at that time, and very little understanding. I would fancy the heroes, especially Dev Anand, Rajendra Kumar etc. And I would have lasting crush on the leading ladies; generally lasting for a few weeks. I would fancy them to be my leading ladies 😉 – Sadhna, Asha Parekh, Mumtaz, Saira Banu etc.

Besides these two types of fancies, there was, yes one more. This was not so much of a fancy, rather it was more of an abhorrent fright. Of a special person when he appeared on the screen. And a panic would run through the mind and I would clutch a parent’s hand and whisper “oye, Pran aa gaya”.

Such was the dread in the minds of us pre teen kids. Whenever we saw him enter the frame, our hearts were like – now something bad is going to happen. He is going to bully someone, he is going to beat up someone, he is going to insult someone, he is going to cheat someone, he is going to put his weight on a lady and make her scream. . . Ah yes, these were the type of stereotype images that were associated with Pran, and we despised him for all our childhood.

Fast forward now to mid 1990s. I was in the US, and had a long stint in the city of Lansing in Michigan, working on a state govt. project. Lansing is comparatively a small town, despite the fact that it is the capital of Michigan state. There were only two other things besides the state government – the state university and a cornflakes factory owned by Kellogs. And being in Michigan, we were snowed in for six months, and chilled out for another four. We just got a warm season for two months – July and August.

So there was not much to do in that town, other than concentrate on your work. For me, there was a grand saving grace. The small town had a big video library of Hindi films, run by a Pakistani national and a very dear friend, to date – Akbar Bhai. It was not long before I became his best customer, and just for my sake, he would communicate with other dealers in the country and sometimes even travel out, to get the films that I would be requesting of him. I purchased two Toshiba VCRs, bought many packs of VHS tapes, and spent a lot of time copying videos of songs from the VHS tapes that I rented from him.

Sorry for this longish digression, I am coming to the point. The net is that for the few years that I spent in Lansing, I watched and replayed a ton of Hindi films that were available on VHS – of course my choice would taper off after 1970s. In one set of many weeks together, the movies that I rented from him, were a combination of many leading heros, and many genres. But all of them had one thing in common. The villain was Pran. In each and every one of these films, Pran would be getting a hiding of his life in the last 10 to 15 minutes of every film. After having sat through probably a score of films over a period of 4 to 5 weeks, my mind changed and started sympathizing with him. No matter what the film was, he would get beaten up black and blue at the end. And to add insult to injury, he was forced to apologize and plead for forgiveness, or summarily be taken away by the police.

Really telling you, I started to feel sorry for him. And I started to wonder. Day in and day out, he would be shooting films with his co stars, and on every set and every studio floor, he would be taking a beating in front of hundreds of onlookers, every single time. And my mind started to build upon a psychology of such an individual. Of course it did strike me somewhere within this analysis, that yes, money is also involved. But then I rationalized – if I were given money, just for getting beat up every week and in every film I worked in, I would throw away the money, and walk away. But the money angle aside, I used to wonder at this gluttony for punishment. In every film, he misbehaves with ladies, he cons his own family members, he bullies and beats up people. And then, he gets beat up real good for the happy ending of a film. And my mind was like – does this guy never learn? Does he never give up?

I never did see the film ‘Guddi’ (1971) in its first runs. I would get to see it many years later, maybe on Doordarshan or maybe on a VHS play. An inkling of the true nature of this gentleman – I encountered for the first time in this film. Kusum (a teenager, role played by Jaya), who is smitten with a crush for actor Dharmendra, is taken to Bombay by her uncle, Utpal Dutt, and is given a tour of the film studios – a view of how the films are actually made, and what these stars are in real life behind the scenes. So there is a scene, in which Jaya is with Dharmendra, and Pran walks by. They greet each other; and Kusum is hiding behind Dharmendra in fear. Dharmendra admires Pran’s wrist watch, and Pran immediately takes it off and presents it to Dharmendra. After Pran leaves, Jaya reacts strongly, insisting to Dharmendra to return the watch – “इस में कोई चाल है” is what she says. Dharmendra starts to laugh, and then explains. That Pran Saab in real life is an impeccable gentleman, a complete reverse of what his screen image is. He is an amiable, a very friendly, a very kind and a very helpful person.

Along with Guddi (Kusum), it was also a wiping away of a fanciful sheen in my mind, associated with the person called Pran. Then of course, from 1967 onwards, he had started appearing in character roles other than as a villain, and had a complete makeover of his outward personality over the next few years.

But that image has sustained, because the films exist. That is what typecasting does to you. In reality, Pran is somewhat of a popular name in north India, amongst Punjabi and Hindi speaking families. In the 1950s and 60s, the dread of his roles was so great that actually, families stopped naming their children with the word Pran, and its variations. The Gabbar Singh gloat about “बीस बीस कोस तक॰ ॰ ॰” was still to come many years later. 😀 😀

Today (12th Feb) is the birth anniversary of Pran Saab. I have picked this song from the 1964 film ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ for the anniversary remembrance today. Yes, there is a particular reason. It is one of the rare occasions, when Pran Saab has lip sync-ed a song, and danced on screen, from the era of his continued reign as the arch villain of Hindi films. Of course, after 1967 and ‘Upkar’, when he transitioned into character roles, and that too in a big and significant way, he got to perform many a song on screen. In fact, there was a period of time in 1970s and 80s that specific and meaty roles were written for him, and the screen performance almost always included a song lip synced by him. But in the era till the 1960s, he just has an occasional song assigned to him.

Although I have not made a definitive search for them, I recall the following; the duet “Jise Dhoondhti Phirti Hai Meri Nazar” from the film ‘Sheesh Mahal’ (1950); then the fun song from ‘Munim ji’ (1955) – “Dil Ki Umangen Hain Jawaan”. This latter song is also a unique piece of music – Pran Saab has sung for himself in this song. Yes, of course, the iconic “Hai Aag Hamaare Seene Mein. . . Hum Bhi Hain, Tum Bhi Ho” from the musical bonanza ‘Jis Desh Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). Sterling performance, as Pran Saab rides two horses simultaneously, standing on the back of the horses, one foot on each horse.

And then we come to today’s song. The song is a dance sequence being performed by Gopikrishan Maharaj and Madhumati. In the three antaraa song, the middle antaraa turns out to be a fantasy play, as Pran, who is actually an audience on the side, daydreams himself to be performing the song, along with Sandhya Roy. the lady companion that I am not able to name. So the middle antaraa is performed on screen by Pran Saab and Sandhya Roy his lady companion. Now this performance, a folk dance type steps, trying to emulate someone none other than the great Gopikrishan Maharaj himself, is a type of performance that one does not associate with him (at least in this phase of his career), and none other that I have seen in any other film. I request our knowledgeable friends and readers on the blog to please add more such instances, if they are aware. And yes, the request also includes help to identify the actress who is his lady companion in this clip.
[Ed Note: The lady companion in this clip is identified as Bengali actress Sandhya Roy, as per the inputs provided by Shri Partha Chanda.]

‘Pooja Ke Phool’ is the typical south Indian family drama that is produced by the prestigious banner of AVM and directed by Bheem Singh. The extreme emotionalism of such family dramas, plus the complexity (zaniness??) of the plots and sub plots, sometimes makes this category of films insufferable. So in this film, Pran is the husband of the niece of Dharmendra. Forget the age factor, even the appearances of the characters do not do justice to them. To top it, he (Pran) is also having an amorous fling on the side. In this song, we see him come to see this street performance along with his lady love from the extra-marital affair. Dharmendra too, chances to be on the spot. He sees the two together, and walks away in anger. A little later in the film, the lady starts to demand rights and shares as a wife. She threatens to kill him. The two meet, and in the melee that ensues, the lady gets killed. Mohan Choti is an eyewitness. However, Dharmendra takes on the blame, just so that his niece’s life and home is not jeopardized. Case comes to the court. Ashok Kumar is the public prosecutor, and he has this personal thing against Dharmendra – he has ditched Ashok Kumar’s daughter, and married someone else. Now enter the daughter, Mala Sinha, who is also a lawyer. She comes to the court as the defense lawyer for Dharmendra. Despite his repeated confessions in the court, the case is made to continue. Dharmendra and Mala Sinha were an amorous pair once, but circumstances led Dharmendra to marry a blind girl (Nimmi). If all this does not sound too complicated yet, maybe it is time to watch the film itself. 😀 😀

Not saying too many things about the film, I must confess that I am quite bowled over by the music and the songs. The list if songs is quite impressive, as given below.

Dil Todna Kisi Ka Ye Zindagi Nahin Hai 2886 1-Sep-10

Banda Parwar. . . Raat Ke Andhere Mein Yun Chori Chori Chale Kidhar 14034 8-Feb-18

The songs of this film have been penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

I would like to write about one more thing, related to this song. The choreography of this dance is done by Gopikrishan Maharaj himself. And that simply is excellent. The dance movements are very imaginatively sequenced, and very excellently executed, including the facial expressions and the twitching of eyebrows. The pace of the song and the pace of the singing is – fast. And the dance steps themselves are so energetic and so beautifully arranged. Pran Saab surely has his work cut out as he takes on the 2nd antaraa on screen.

So now let us enjoy this wonderful peppy dance number. And remember this very lovable villain of the Hindi cinema.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

dushman hon jab chaaron taraf
hon haath tumhaare khaali
bolo bachchon
kaise karoge tum apni rakhwaali

main bataaun
ye phaulaadi haath hamare
dushman se takrayen

ye phauladi haath hamaare dushman se takraayen
ye phauladi haath hamare dushman se takraayen
kat ja ye sar chaahe lekin
sar ko nahin jhukaayen

har mushkil mein har keemat pe
rahenge hum aazaad
sau baaton ki ek baat hai
isko rakhna yaad
maan gaye ustaad tumko
maan gaye ustaad
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do
ye main tumpe chhodta hoon
achcha do kharaab do
mera ek sawaal hai
sawaal ka jawaab do

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

/‘ऊ’/

‘ए’ – एक दिल हैं एक जान हैं

तुम मुझे यूं भुला ना पाओगे
जब कभी भी सुनोगे गीत मेरे
संग संग तुम भी गुनगुनाओगे॰ ॰ ॰

क्या सच ब्यान कर गए आप, रफी साब॰ ॰ ॰

Your voice, and your songs are so imprinted on the memory, that the mind sings along the verses, every time it hears any of your songs. These memories are now lifelong; they will not be deserted till the last breath.

Moving forward with the series of duets – I am skipping ‘ऊ’ because no duet song starting with this vowel is available. So I come to ‘ए’, as the starting letter for today’s song.

This song is from the 1976 film ‘Shaque’, a taut psychological thriller starring Shabana Azmi, Vinod Khanna, Utpal Dutt, Bindu, Durga Khote, Farida Jalal, Master Atul, Arvind Deshpande, Suhas Bhalekar, Satya Kumar Patil, VP Kaale, and AK Banerjee. The film is produced and directed by the husbsand-wife team of Aruna and Vikas, under their own banner – Avikam, Bombay. The five songs in this film are penned by Gulzar (four) and Hafiz (one), and the music direction is by Vasant Desai. This was the last film that Vasant Desai composed the music for, before his unfortunate demise in an unexpected and zany lift accident.

The film deals with a slinking doubt that creeps into the lives of a happily settled couple. Doubts, that go way back into the past, when the couple were less affluent, and a criminal event had happened at the workplace of the husband. The circumstances of the event eventually left the case open, as the guilt of any specific individual could not be established. Years later, that lack of closure becomes the source of doubt and distrust between the couple. The film is very down to earth and very sensibly handled by the director’s team.

This song is one of that rare category of songs that seems to be have been created and recorded as a complete song, but then are used partially in the film, plus they re not released in any other format. So the part of the song that is included on the film’s sound track is the only part that is available. Folks will recall the unlisted song of film ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) – “Peechhe Peechhe Duniya Aage Aage Hum“, that got posted in July last year as a partial song which is available only on the film’s soundtrack. That is a similar example. Then in the 1987 film ‘Susman’, there are one or maybe two bhajans by Kabir, that play in the background, in many parts, throughout the film. They too are not available, other than from the film’s soundtrack. Another example that comes to mind is the complete ghazal “Dil Ka Bharosa To Nahin” from the 1961 film ‘Shama’ – that too is not available anywhere else other than the sound track only. I am sure there are many more such songs and partial songs sitting only in the film’s soundtrack waiting to be discovered.

The online link that is provided actually plays the song more than once. The actual length of the available snippet is just a tad over one minute. The uploader has created a longer piece by splicing and pasting together the available snippet multiple times.

Even this one minute snippet is a wonderful example of how Vasant Desai has taken the free metre verses penned by Gulzar and weaved them into a delectable song. Enjoy this minute long sojourn of beautiful sound.

Song – Ek Dil Hai Ek Jaan Hai Ek Jaan e Jaan (Shaque) (1976) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Vasant Desai

The Yippeee film for today is the 1969 ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’. Belonging to the B/C grade thriller cum social category, the film is produced under the banner of Ashok Films, Bombay, and is directed by Devraj. The star cast of the film includes Dev Kumar, Sonia Sahni, Shahida, Dev Dutt, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Murad, Rajan Haksar amongst others.

The film is a variation on the traditional lost-and-found theme. The variation in this case is that a child is lost; later on he grows up to be a criminal and then found by the parents. The story line is summarized as follows,

Dev Kumar is a bad character, and is on the run from the police. He is the long lost son of Murad and Mridula Rani, who have been searching for him for years, based on the description of a locket that the child was wearing when he got separated from his parents. The child has grown up into a criminal, and actually he knows he is the son of Murad. But because he is a criminal, he refuses to go back to his parents, for the fear of bringing bad name to them. Murad and his family also suspect this to be true, but are not certain.

To reach his son, Murad plans a way to trap him, with the help of police. The criminal son is in love with Sonia Sahni. Murad arranges a stage show in which he brings Sonia Sahni to perform a dance. The plan is put in place, with the expectation that Dev Kumar will find some way or the other come to the program to watch his beloved. The expected happens. Dev Kumar enters the theatre in disguise, but then removes it once he is inside. The police inspector Rajan Haksar is watching the audience and he locates Dev Kumar. By the time the performance comes to an end, he is enters the box section where Dev Kumar is sitting, and takes him into custody. The film moves towards a happy-ending as Rajan Haksar takes the criminal Dev Kumar, not to the police station but to Murad’s residence. After all is sorted out and everybody is happy, the inspector then takes the criminal with him, saying that he will try for a pardon or a light sentence for him.

The film has five songs listed, one of which is a multi version song that appears two times in the film, once as a solo in Rafi Sb’s voice and the second time as a solo in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The 4+1 songs already posted on the blog are listed as under,

Apne Naam Ke Kareeb Mera Bhi Naam Likh Lo 3712 30-Mar-11 Mohammed Rafi
Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchaan Jaate 5935 7-May-12 Mohammed Rafi
Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchaan Jaate 5935 7-May-12 Lata Mangeshkar
Na Jaane Peer Dil Ki Bepeer Baalma 9905 14-Jun-14 Lata Mangeshkar
Raat Ke Andhere Mein 14039 09-Feb-28 Asha Bhosle

In the Geet Kosh listing, it is indicated as if some more songs may be in the film. However, Atul ji, while posting the penultimate song of this film, had done a fast-forward review of the film, and confirms that the 5+1 songs listed in the Geet Kosh are the only songs in the film, and no more.

This is one of the very few films that Prem Dhawan has written the songs, as well as composed the music for. I have written about this in the two earlier posts of the songs of this film, listed at number 1 and number 4 above.

The songs of this film are a veritable treat for the aficionados. Almost all the songs became very popular in their time and were frequently heard on the radio waves. “Apne Naame Ke Kareeb. . .”, the two versions of “Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchan Jaate” and the stage dance song “Na Jaane Peer Dil Ki. . .” have been some the all time favorites of the listeners.

Today’s song is a duet, or maybe a so-called duet, in the voices of Rafi Sb and Usha Timothy. I say ‘so-called’, because in the song, most of the singing is done by Rafi Sb, and Usha Timothy just gets to add the words “thoda thoda” once in each refrain. So literally speaking, it is “thoda thoda” contribution by her to this song. On screen, the song is picturized on Dev Dutt and Shahida.

This song too, is a delightful offering, maybe lesser known in comparison to its more popular siblings in this film. But still a pleasure to listen to. Enjoy.

And plus let us celebrate the film ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’ joining the list of films with all songs posted, on the blog. Cheers.

 

Song – Hothon Pe Inkaar Thoda Thoda  (Raat Ke Andhere Mein) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Usha Timothy, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan

ओ ओ

ओ संगदिल हसीना
माथे पे क्यों पसीना
पत्थर भी पिघलते हैं
देखा था ये कभी ना

के होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

इतने बुरे हम नहीं
का आँखें चुराओ
कतरा के यूं ना चलो
ना दामन बचाओ
इक दिन किसी पे तो आएगा दिल
इक दिन कोई लेके जाएगा दिल
कर लो हमीं पे एतबार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

होता ना हमसे जो प्यार
तो क्यों शर्माते
छुप छुप के यूं मेरी जान
तुम मिलने ना आते
मिल के नज़र यूं ही झुकती नहीं
ये वो लगी है जो छुपती नहीं
तेरा भी दिल है बेक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

मिलने की है आरज़ू
तो कैसी ये दूरी
तेरी मेरी दास्तान
रहे ना अधूरी
कब तक अकेले मेरा दिल जले
तड़पाने वाले आ लग जा गले
मिल जाये हमको क़रार
हाहं थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाहाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

/‘ई’/

‘उ’ – उठो बुलबुलों तोड़ दो तीलियाँ

दिल की आवाज़ भी सुन॰ ॰ ॰

वो अगर चे सुन सकते, हम तो सुनाते ही रहते॰ ॰ ॰

But now, the voice has gone to distant lands unknown, where our call will not reach, and his voice will not come back again. It seems like a thing of yesterday that I saw him perform live on Doordarshan; or that I read about another award in the Filmfare magazine, that he had stood up and walked up to receive. The mind simply does not believe that he has not been with us mortals for the past almost four decades. कहाँ से ले के आएँ, अपने बूते की बात नहीं॰ ॰ ॰ दिल को ही समझाना पड़ता है।

Moving forward with the series of duets – I have to skip ‘ई’ because no duet song starting with this vowel is available. So I come to ‘उ’, as the starting letter for today’s song.

As I was searching for such a song, I came across this song from ‘Khaamosh Sipaahi’ of 1950, and I listened to it in complete amazement. And I listened to it again and again, and again. The composition by Hansraj Behl – it is so unique and so different, that I wonder whether such an arrangement has been attempted in any other songs.

The leading voices in this ‘duet’ song are of Rafi Sb and Geeta Roy/Dutt. But the entire song is arranged as a chorus song. The individual voices of the lead singers are not heard separately even once. There are lines by the chorus of male voices, and there lines by the chorus of female voices, and then there are lines by chorus of male plus female voices. The beauty and the redeeming feature of this singing is how the various voices have been arranged. When the male chorus is heard, then Rafi Sb’s voice is very clearly discernible a little above the chorus of male voices. When the female chorus is heard, then Geeta Roy’s voice is clearly discernible a little above the chorus on female voices.

I am not able to immediately recall another song which has been arranged with such meticulous attention to the sound of the lead voices in a chorus of voices. Really beautifully done.

And the words by DN Madhok Sb, they simply take one along with the emotions of an army preparing for battle. Yes, that is right, this song has been designed as a slow paced marching song of the warriors.

I have no information about this film – ‘Khamosh Sipahi’, and I request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this film and the picturization of this song. But the words indicate that it is a song that is exhorting people for a struggle. Given the time period (1950), it would seem that the song is urging the warriors, either for the freedom struggle or maybe the first invasion of Kashmir by Pakistani marauders (in 1948). Maybe it is the freedom struggle – the refrain of the song is

utho bulbulo
tod do teeliaan

The words are urging the timid and frail nightingale birds, to rise and break the ‘teeliaan’. This word ‘teeliaan’ here refers to the wooden twigs or splinters that are used to make cages for small birds.

The song, slow paced as it is, it still has a very exhilarating effect on the mind and the heart. The slow pace is almost a haunting that takes over the mind. And the mind wants to listen to this sound again and again. Such a wonderful creation – and I would lay all the kudos on Hansraj Behl for the composition, the arrangement  of the minimal music, and such a beautiful play of chorus voices entwined around the lead voices – it is simply amazing. There is some leading violin music, but after that when the singing starts, there simply is no music except for a very low rhythm of drum beats. The entire creation is so enchanting.

Just listen to this, and be amazed.

PS: There is one word in the lyrics of the first antaraa, that I am not sure that I have got it correct. Maybe it is, maybe the meaning fits in, or maybe not. I request other readers to please help confirm or correct this word. 🙂

Song – Utho Bulbulo Tod Do Teeliyaan (Khamosh Sipaahi) (1950) Singer – Geeta Roy/Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Hansraj Behl
Mohammed Rafi + Male Chorus
Geeta Roy/Dutt + Female Chorus
Rafi + Geeta + All Chorus

Lyrics

utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo

tumhaare liye abr ghir ghir ke aaye
abr ghir ghir ke aaye
khushi jholion mein wo bhar bhar ke laaye
wo bhar bhar ke laaye
wo bhoola hua phir banega samaan
utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo

himaala ne tum ko pukaara hai aao
pukaara hai aao
meri chotiyon par wohi geet gaao
meri chotiyon par wohi geet gaao
ke sun kar dehal jaaye saara jahaan
utho bulbulo
tod to teeliaan
kahaan qaid thandi hawaayen kahaan
utho bulbulo

mujhe khabr hai par kate hain tumhaare
par kate hain tumhaare
utho waqt deta hai tum ko ishaare
ho tum ko ishaare
gaya waqt phir jaa ke aaye kahaan
utho bulbulo
utho bulbulo
utho bulbulo

In the year 1969, “Mere Sapnon Ki Rani Kab Aayegi Tu” – the song from ‘Aradhana’ had taken the entire nation by storm. So many things of this song became such dear memories, that have lasted for decades. Of course, the melody (Sachin Da) and its rendition (Kishore Kumar) are absolutely superlative. The song, and its popularity paved the way and propelled Rajesh Khanna towards super stardom. And the other things about this song – well the parallel drive of the army jeep and the toy train is one. Sharmila Tagore sittings in the window seat in the train is absolutely ravishing with her smile and dimpled cheeks. She is reading a novel, rather pretending to read, as her eyes and mind are on the antics of the young man in the jeep. Ah yes, and the novel she has in her hand – a very popular thriller writer of that era – Alistair Maclean; and the title of novel – ‘When Eight Bells Toll’. (No, no, don’t worry, I will not get into the story line of the novel 🙂 ).

Let’s see, what else. Aah yes, the almost edge of the cliff driving, one handed driving, while playing the mouth organ, with a scampering hearted young man, jumping about in the jeep at the same time. And the man behind the wheel, in a black leather hat – Sujit Kumar. This single handed driving on the cliff edge while playing the mouth organ with the other hand, besought Sujit Kumar a memorable imagery, that embedded in the collective memory much more than his career till then. And it also kind of shifted his career path – more towards character roles in A grade cinema.

Remembering Sujit Kumar on his birth anniversary today (7th February).

Sujit Kumar was born this day in 1934, in the city of Benaras. His family were rich landowners for generations in that area. An unlikely, unexpected and a very hesitant entrant into the film world, Sujit had never planned to or dreamed of being a film star. Going through his school and college in a very normal traditional manner, the plans for him was to go to UK for higher studies and get an MBA degree.

It was chance, or a mistake, or destiny – at college he participated in a stage play. The play was judged as very successful and was sent as an entry to a college play competition. More destiny – Phani Majumdar, renowned director of his times, was invited to judge the competition. Sujit’s play was adjudged the winner, and Sujit Kumar adjudged as the best actor in the competition. Phani Da talked with him, and suggested joining films. He invited him to join as assistant director on the then current project – ‘Akaashdeep’ (1965), with a promise to take on Sujit as a hero in the following film he would produce.

The destiny turned fickle; ‘Akaashdeep’ was a commercial let down, and Phani Da could not have a next project to work on with a newcomer. Sujit remembers his predicament – on one hand he was to go to London for MBA and now he was forced to make rounds of film producers offices in search of work. He was very disheartened. He got into other films as an assistant director – like ‘Apna Bana Ke Dekho’ and ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’.

Around early to mid 1960s, the Bhojpuri film industry began taking roots. The first film ‘Ganga Maiya Tohey Piyari Chadhaibo’ was released in 1962, to a great success. Its producers, Nazir Husain and director Kundan Shah, then approached Sujit Kumar for their next project. Sujit was very excited with the offer and started to prepare for the role. Just less than a week prior to the start of shooting schedule, he was informed that he had been removed from the film. Rumors had it that Aseem Kumar, the hero of the earlier ‘Ganga Maiya Tohey Piyari Chadhaibo’, went to meet Kum Kum, the heroine of that earlier film, and through her, he influenced the producer director to retain Aseem Kumar as the hero.

Sujit was very dejected. But then the destiny did another flip. Bachubhai Shah, another producer starting his venture into Bhojpuri films, approached him for his first project. Sujit, cautious to the extreme, requested for a meeting with the heroine, Naaz, to make sure he does not get dumped once again. After the meeting, all was well. The film ‘Bidesiya’ went on to be one of the greatest hits of the Bhojpuri cinema.

Time was also when Sujit started to get lead roles in Hindi films, albeit in B and C grade thriller type films. A sampler list – ‘Ek Saal Pehle’ (1965), ‘Laal Bangla’ (1966), ‘Labela’ (1966), ‘Ek Raaz’ (1960s), ‘Lamboo in Hong Kong’ (1967), ‘Sub Ka Ustad’ (1967), ‘Lahu Pukaarega’ (1968), ‘Gunda’ (1969), and ‘Mangu Dada’ (1970). In parallel, his career in A grade films as a character artist was also shaping up simultaneously. He appeared in a number of films in supporting roles – ‘Ladka Ladki’ (1966), ‘Pati Patni’ (1966), ‘Jaal’ (1967), ‘Aankhen’ (1968), ‘Aulaad’ (1968), ‘Aradhna’ (1969), ‘Ittefaq’ (1969), ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ (1970), and so on. A special mention here needs to be made of the 1969 film ‘Gustakhi Maaf’. In this comedy film, Sujeet Kumar and Sanjeev Kumar teamed up to play the roles of two brothers, who get entangled with a double roled Tanuja, making for one of the most rollicking comedies of the 1960s.

Past the 1970 milestone, Sujit Kumar’s career took off in two directions – a very successful lead actor in Bhojpuri films, and a very successful and sought after character actor in Hindi films. Later on, he also turned a producer, making some big name films like ‘Anubhav’ (1986), ‘Aasmaan Se Ooncha’ (1989), ‘Ganga Kahe Pukar Ke’ (Bhojpuri) (1991), ‘Khel’ (1992), ‘Daraar’ (1996), ‘Champion’ (2000) and ‘Aetbaar’ (2004).

Sujit Kumar passed away on 5th February, in 2010, after a long fight with cancer.

Today’s song is from the 1969 film ‘Gunda’. The film is produced under the banner of Smart Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohammed Husain. The cast of actors consists of Sheikh Mukhtar, Sujit Kumar, Jayanti, NA Ansari, Bhagwan, Helen, Bela Bose, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Shaam Kumar, Shefali, Mumtaz Begum, Uma Dutt, Mohan Jerry, Satish, Sharifa, and Fatima etc.

The film has six songs, written by three song writers – Anjaan, Shadaab, and Dev Kohli. Music for this film is composed by GS Kohli. One song of this film is already showcased here on our blog. This is the second song of this film, coming on board today. The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, the song is performed by Sujit Kumar and Jayanti.

A wonderful duet, that is a expression of love song. The gentleman is quite keen to announce to the world, his love for the lady. And the lady is reticent, and asks the gentleman to wait. Enjoy this tete-a-tete between lovers.

Song – Haan Hum Ne Pyaar Kiya Keh Den Zamaane Se  (Gunda) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – GS Kohli

Lyrics

haan hum ne pyaar kiya
keh den zamaane se
abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
o ho abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
pyaar kabhi chhupta hai
aise chhupaane se
kabhi nahin
na na kabhi nahin
meri jaan kabhi nahin
na na kabhi nahin

tumhin se pyaar kiya hai
isey chhupaayen kyon
kiya hai zurm hum ne kya
nazar churaayen kyon
kiya hai pyaar magar aisi koi baat na kar
zamaane waale hum pe ungliyaan uthaayen kyon
zamaana kya hai
zamaane ne kis ka saath diya
hamaari baat karo
hum ne tumse pyaar kiya
deewaane yun na sataa
yun na sataa
yun na sataa
ab to dil ka raaz keh de
dil ke deewaane se
abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
meri jaan abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
haan hum ne pyaar kiya
keh den zamaane se
abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
o ho abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin

ghata si zulf aaj khul ke mehak jaane de
dhalak raha hai ye aanchal to dhalak jaane de
sambaahlo khud ko abhi aise beqaraar na ho
balaa se dil behak raha hai
behak jaane de
teri adaayen jab yun dil ko beqaraar karen
dabaa ke dard kab talak yun intezaar karen
na chhed aise sanam
tujhko qasam
meri qasam
ab to dil se milne de
dil kisi bahaane se
abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
meri jaan abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
ho oo oo
haan hum ne pyaar kiya
keh den zamaane se
abhi nahin
na na abhi nahin
o ho abhi nahin
meri jaan abhi nahin
pyaar kabhi chhupta hai
aise chhupaane se
kabhi nahin
na na kabhi nahin
meri jaan kabhi nahin
na na kabhi nahin

हाँ हमने प्यार किया
कह दें ज़माने से
अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
ओ हो अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
प्यार कभी छुपता है
ऐसे छुपाने से
कभी नहीं
ना ना कभी नहीं
मेरी जां कभी नहीं
ना ना कभी नहीं

तुम्हीं से प्यार किया है
इसे छुपाएं क्यों
किया है ज़ुर्म हमने क्या
नज़र चुराएँ क्यों’
किया है प्यार मगर ऐसी कोई बात ना कर
ज़माने वाले हम पे उँगलियाँ उठाएँ क्यों
ज़माना क्या है
ज़माने ने किस का साथ दिया
हमारी बात करो
हमने तुमसे प्यार किया
दीवाने यूं ना सता
यूं ना सता
यूं ना सता
अब तो दिल का राज़ कह दे
दिल के दीवाने से
अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
मेरी जां अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
हाँ हमने प्यार किया
कह दें ज़माने से
अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
ओ हो अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं

घटा सी जुल्फ आज खुल के महक जाने दे
ढलक रहा है ये आँचल तो ढलक जाने दे
संभालो खुद को अभी ऐसे बेक़रार ना हो
बला से दिल बहक रहा है
बहक जाने दे
तेरी अदाएं जब यूं दिल को बेक़रार करें
दबा के दर्द कब तलक यूं इंतज़ार करें
ना छेड़ ऐसे सनम
तुझको क़सम
मेरी क़सम
अब तो दिल से मिलने दे
दिल किसी बहाने से
अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
मेरी जां अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
हो ओ ओ
हाँ हमने प्यार किया
कह दें ज़माने से
अभी नहीं
ना ना अभी नहीं
ओ हो अभी नहीं
मेरी जां अभी नहीं
प्यार कभी छुपता है
ऐसे छुपाने से
कभी नहीं
ना ना कभी नहीं
मेरी जां कभी नहीं
ना ना कभी नहीं

‘Kab Kyun Aur Kahaan’ (1970) was directed by Arjun Hingorani for Kapleshwar Films, Bombay. This ‘social’ movie had Dharmendra, Babita, Pran, Helen, Ashu, Dhumal, Asit Sen, Mohan Choti, Hari Shivdasani, Jankidas, Hiralal, Sujata, Shetty, Keshav Rana, Master Ratan, Murad, Yunus, Susheela, Ranveer Raj etc in it.

This movie had four songs in it. Two of these songs were covered in the blog in 2013.

The third song from the movie was covered in February 2018, viz after a long gap of over 1800 days. 🙂

The details of the songs discussed in the past are as under:

Ye aankhen jhuki jhuki si 8593 25-Aug-13
Ho gaye tere ho gaye 14011 4-Feb-18

Here is the next song, which is the fourth and final song from the movie. This song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

The song is picturised on Babita and Dharmendra as an “expression of love” genre of song with “pranay nivedan” being the sub genre. The gentleman requests “pyaar” and the lady responds with “nahin nahin” and “kabhi nahin” with metronomic precision. But experienced duet song listeners like me know that the lyrics of the last stanza of the song would change colour signifying that the “kabhi nahin” has been repealed and replaced with consent. 🙂

The song is picturised nicely at picturesque locations. I wonder if the locations shown in the picturisation still retain the same picture postcard beauty. Seeing that the picturisation took place half a century ago, it is highly unlikely that the localities retain the same appearance now.

With this delightful romantic song, ‘Kab Kyun Aur Kahaan’ (1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

tu bhi meri kismat likh de
apne pyaar ke kaajal se ae
chhod meri raahen

pyaar tujhe maange na milegaa
jaan bhale le le

main hoon phir bhi pyaase ka pyaasa
paas hai amrit ka pyaala aa
paas hai amrit ka pyaala
allaah kaise chhudaaun main palla
padaa hai paagal se paala aa
pyaar se dil bhar de
nahin nahin
hum pe karam kar de
kabhi nahin
varna hum mar jaayenge o zaalim
naam tera le le
haaye allaah

लो मिल गईं लहरों से लहरें
मिलें हैं बादल बादल से
मिलें हैं बादल बादल से
हो कोई दिल बंधा हुआ है
किसी ना किसी के आँचल से
किसी ना किसी के आँचल से
तू भी मेरी किस्मत लिख दे
अपने प्यार के काजल से
छोड़ मेरी राहें
नहीं नहीं
छोड़ मेरी बाहें
कभी नहीं
प्यार तुझे मांगे ना मिलेगा
जान भले ले ले
अल्लाह अल्लाह

प्यार शमा ने दिया किसी को
सारी सारी रात जली॰॰ई
सारी सारी रात जली
प्यार कली ने दिया किसी को
सारे चमन में बात चली॰॰ई
सारे चमन में बात चली
मैंने तुझको ज़रा सा चाहा
रुसवा हो गई गली गली
प्यार से दिल भर दे
ऊँ हूँ
हम पे करम कर दे
कभी नहीं
वरना हम मर जाएँगे ओ ज़ालिम
नाम तेरा ले ले
हाए अल्लाह

मैं हूँ फिर भी प्यासे का प्यासा
पास है अमृत का प्याला॰॰आ
पास है अमृत का प्याला
अल्लाह कैसे छुड़ाऊँ मैं पल्ला
पड़ा है पागल से पाला॰॰आ
प्यार से दिल भर दे
नहीं नहीं
हम पे करम कर दे

वरना हम मर जाएँगे ओ ज़ालिम

“Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) was directed by Raj Khosla for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay, the home production of Pradeep Kumar. The movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Shashikala, Rehman, B Nandi, Jagdeep, Nazeer Hussain, Tuntun etc in it.

This “social” movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Do Dilon Ki Daastaan”(1966) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised as a ghoda gaadi song, and the lip syncer is addressing the ghoda in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Chal beta left chal beta right(Do Dilon Ki Daastaan)(1966) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

arre ho o
ban thhan kar aaya tere dwaare
gori ee ee
ik man basiyaa aa aa

aaya karke bhes niraala
le ke kaandhe pe doshaala
tere pyaar ka hai ye maara
tere darshan ka matwaala
aaya karke bhes nirala
le ke kaandhe pe doshaala
tere pyaar ka hai ye maara

leke chaand sitaare
gori ab to samajh le

sar pe jeet ka sehra

tere pyaar ka hai ye maara
tere darshan ka matwaala
aaya karke bhes niraala

ho aaya door se chal ke(?) teri nagri
tera saajan albela
laaya sang khushi ka mela
ho bhaag jagaane aaya
tujh se preet nibhaane aaya
o sun le tujhko
pyaar mein doobe geet sunaane aaya
hai ye raagi bada niraala
tere naam ki japta maala
tere pyaar ka hai ye maara

tujhe jiski hai aas
aaya wo hi tere paass
zara naina to mila le
bujhe nazron ki pyaas
o tujhe jiski hai aas
aaya wo hi tere paas
zara naina to mila le
bujhe nazron ki pyaas
aaya leke dil ki jholi
maange preet ka ujaala
tere pyaar ka hai ye maara
tere darshan ka matwaala
aaya karke bhes niraala
ha ha ha aa
