Fabulous Foot Tappers – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

“What a find. Such a rollicking song.”

This the comment by our own Ava Suri ji, that I find on the YouTube upload page of this song. Yes, ‘rollicking’ is just the right word to describe the tenor of this song. By the way, the YouTube channel on which this is posted is titled ‘The Edwina Channel’. And for those who are familiar, this channel is managed by Dan Thomas (aka Thomas Daniel). Dan has been actively collaborating with dear Greta Memsaab, for cleaning and sprucing up digital videos of old Hindi films, subtitling them and putting them up on the YT. Our dear Raja ji is also part of this effort.

The eighth edition of this series comes on after a long gap. The previous (7th) episode was posted on 5th April earlier this year (which itself was posted after a gap of almost one and a half years after the 6th one). The delay is all mine, and so is the loss. In the interim, at least two or three songs that I had short listed for this series, got posted otherwise. 😦 🙂 So anyway, the search is on for more Fabulous Foot Tappers from the 1950s and 60s.

The Rock n Roll genre of music took shape and evolved in the United States during late 1940s and early 1950s. The phrase “rocking and rolling” originally described the movements of a ship on the ocean. Later, this phrase was used to describe the spiritual fervor of church rituals, especially the Afro-American church denominations. The phrase also started to be used as a term for amorous tryst between lovers. 😉

Developing from a combination of gospel music, jazz music and the R&B (rhythm and blues) of the Afro-American people, this music very soon caught the fancy of the white teenager population in the growing urban centres in America. Moving on from the origins, where the primary musical instrument used to be a piano or a saxophone, in the early 1950s, the guitar took the centre stage, supported by the drums. And soon, as the electric guitar came along, it became by itself, or in combination with the normal guitar, the lead instrument for this music. As this music became popular across the race divide in the US, radio stations started to dedicatedly play this music, and started to refer to it as Rock n Roll.

Hindi films could not be far behind in adapting this music genre into the film songs. From the mid 1950s onwards, we see quite a number of music directors that took this genre and constructed many a wonderful pieces. Listening to them, there is an urge to tap your feet, or even get up and start dancing to these fabulous rocking sounds.

Today’s treat is a great sampling of this genre. Coming from the obscure film ‘Love And Murder’ (1966), this fast paced song is composed by OP Nayyar. Right from the word go, the drum beats take the centre stage, and in the accompanying visuals we see a group of young men and women dancing to the tune of this wonderful rock n roll song. The dancers are led by Edwina. The other young lady accompanying her in the lead movements is identified as Aruna, as per the YT post by Dan.

If this song had not been so positively rollicking, I would have been tempted to use it in the other series titled “Rare Performances – Things Unique and Unexpected”. We have a surprise – an actor who I see lip syncing a song on screen for the first time – Hiralal, the noted villain character from many a films of the Golden Era. He is accompanied very enthusiastically by Suresh. There is one more bearded young man who accompanies them in the lead singing; I request for help from other knowledgeable readers to identify this actor.

I have noted this as a “diversion” song. As the opening shot shows, this song is being performed during late evening time, on open street in front of a building that carries the sign board of a bank. As the song proceeds, we are treated to some shots which explain what is happening – the plan is to rob the bank. Some members of the gang are inside the bank and are attempting to blast open the vault with explosives. Another part of this gang is on the road outside the bank, with loud music, singing and fireworks, obviously to mask the explosive sounds of the misdeeds of the miscreants inside the bank.

The words of this song are penned by Shewan Rizvi. The music, the drum rhythms, the quick-burst paced singing and the energetic dance action on the street, all combine to make a wholly fabulous foot tapper. When I started exploring this film for songs, and came across this one, I am simply not able to resist listening to it every so often for the past few days. As Ava ji has said it, and I repeat – “Such a rollicking song”.

I suggest you put on your dancing shoes, before playing it. 😉

 

Song – Dekhne Waale Dekh Karishma Yaaron Ka (Love And Murder) (1966) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Shewan Rizvi, MD – OP Nayyar
Chorus
Rafi + Chorus

Lyrics

dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

dekh palat ke dhyaan kidhar hai
kisi ki topi kisi ke sar hai
haath safaai bada hunar hai
naam hamaara jaadugar hai
hosh udaa de badey badey hoshiyaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

chhuri bagal mein ram ka naara
galey lagaa ke phere aara
aankhen ho to dekh nazaara
raat mein suraj
din mein taara
kehl yahaan pe paise ki jhankaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

ajab hai naksha aaj shehar ka
kahin chataakha kahin pataakha
door kahin par hua dhamaaka
koi na samjha shukar khuda ka
shehar mien hoga shor ye kal akhbaaron ka
dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

dekhne waale dekh karishma yaaron ka
takht mila ya hoga takhta chaaron ka

देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

देख पलट के ध्यान किधर है
किसी की टोपी किसी के सर है
हाथ सफाई बड़ा हुनर है
नाम हमारा जादूगर है
होश उड़ा दे बड़े बड़े होशियारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

छुरी बगल में राम का नारा
गले लगा के फेरें आरा
आँखें हों तो देख नज़ारा
रात में सूरज दिन में तारा
खेल यहाँ पे पैसे की झंकारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

अजब है नक्शा आज शहर का
कहीं चटाखा कहीं पटाखा
दूर कहीं पर हुआ धमाका
कोई ना समझा शुकर खुदा
शहर में होगा शोर ये कल अखबारों का
देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

देखने वाले देख करिश्मा यारों का
तख्त मिला या होगा तख़्ता चारों का

Song-Koi aata hai koi jaata hai (Naya Kadam)(1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-S P Kalla, MD-Narayan Datt

Lyrics

chhod de man ke ae
bhed bhaav ko
tod de jhoothhi chaar deewaari
janam maran ke ek taar se ae
bandhi hui ye duniya saari

koi aata hai koi jaata hai
koi aata hai koi jaata hai
sukh dukh ke donon paaon par
sansaar ye chalta jaata hai
koi aata hai koi jaata hai

o o o
o o o
o o o
o o o
o o o

ek dagar ke ham sab raahi
manzil ek hamaari
arre bade chhoton ki duniya
basti hai kab nyaari
jaane phir kyun man ka panchhi
maaya mein phans jaata hai
koi aata hai koi jaata hai
koi aata hai koi jaata hai

bhookhe ko roti de apni
khud bhookha so jaaye
auron ka dukh apna samjhe
wo insaan kahaaye
jo matlab ke liye jiye
wo jeete jee mar jaata hai
koi aata hai koi jaata hai
koi aata hai koi jaata hai

Song-Kisi se hamne ye poochha (Gareebi)(1949) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

kisi se hamne ye poochha
mohabbat kis ko kehte hain
nazar ka teer maara aur boley
isko kehte hain
nazar ka teer maara aur boley
isko kehte hain
kisi se hamne ye poochha
mohabbat kis ko kehte hain
nazar ka teer maara aur boley
isko kehte hain
nazar ka teer maara aur boley
isko kehte hain

ada se muskuraaye
dil pe ik bijli gira daali
ada se muskuraaye
dil pe ik bijli gira daali
dil pe bijli gira daali
tadap kar yoon kaha dil ne
tadap kar yoon kaha dil ne
muhabbat isko kehte hain
tadap kar yoon kaha dil ne
muhabbat isko kehte hain

ye kaisa dard hai dil mein
jo dil ko achha lagta hai
ye kaisa dard hai dil mein
jo dil ko achha lagta hai
jo dil ko achha lagta hai
yahi wo dard hai dard e
yahi wo dard hai dard e
mohabbat jisko kehte hain
yahi wo dard hai dard e
mohabbat jisko kehte hain

When it comes to remembering important dates, I plead guilty of being an amnesiac.

There have been occasions in the past when I have forgotten the birthday of my spouse and then I had to invent reasons.
(Statutory warning- Never try this at home. 🙂 )

Fortunately, in a few years time, when our daughter grew up, she would keep track of such dates and that would help me in saving my skin.

Just as I have my daughter to tell me about important dates in my personal life, we have our blog regulars who save my skin by reminding me about important dates (mostly birthdays) of our regulars.

It is Peevesie’s mom and Avinash Scrapwala, who reminded me that today (26 october 2017) was the birthday of Raja. I am very much aware that Raja’s birthday falls in the month of october, but I find it difficult to remember the exact date. Hopefully I will now be able to remember the date in future. I have now devised a memory aid to remember the date. R for Republic day (26 january), R for Raja (26 october). Easy, is it not ! 🙂

I am not the first one to greet Raja on the occasion. A few people had already greeted Raja on our whatapp group just after midnight. And then I also found a few messages, including a writeup, for the occasion on my inbox. And so Peevesie’s mom has already stolen a march over others when it comes to a writeup on the occasion. And one much say that she has given a very accurate and very well thought out description of Raja in her writeup.

So what do I write that has not been written by Peevesie’s mom, and which has not been written by others including me about him in the past ?
Well, I can think of some observations about Raja that we may have missed.

I know Raja from our cricket forum days of 2004. When we began following cricket, the cricketers were older than us. A few years later, a stage came when cricketers in our age group began to play international cricket. It would be an intersting exercise for cricket lovers to find out a cricketer who was born nearly on the same days in the same year. When I carried out this exercise, I found that Raja was born six days after Navjot Singh Sidhu. 🙂 As for me, I was born one month after Ravi Shashtri. 🙂 So both of us chose to be born a few days after two interesting cricketers cum highly entertaining commentators. 🙂

Raja holds a few firsts as far as this blog is concerned. He was the first person to comment on this blog. Subsequently he became the first guest contributor of the blog as well, inadvertently of course. In october 2010, he came over to Nagpur and met me. That was the very first “gangout” for this blog.

“gangout” incidently is a term that was inadvertently coined by Raja himself. 🙂 He had coined a term “Atulism” for my kind of humour during our cricket forum days, even before this blog was started. Then Peevesie’s mom coined the term “Atulite.” Raja derived terms like “Satulite” and “Batulite” from that. 🙂 Coining terms that only the regulars of this blog understand is a Raja speciality. 🙂

Raja too possesses his own kind of sense of humour. Sample this PJ shared by Raja

Among Mysore’s many attractions is its zoo.
A Mysorean, visiting Bangalore told me “You should see our zoo”.
So I watched the Sadhana-Rajendra Kumar starrer “Aarzoo” (1965)

People describing Raja have described his interests in the field of HF and HFM, and also in other fields. One can see that he likes many artists, and at the same time, he does not dislike any artists. He is not one of those biased “fans” who feel the urge to pull down the competitors of an artist in their enthusiasm to prove the superiority of one artist over others.

Apart from films, Raja is interested in politics, sports, trains, social issues etc. Apart from this blog, he sometimes posts his musings in his blog, though quite sporadically.

Current generation people may have difficulty writing more than a few lines on any topic, but Raja is from the era when reading and writing was a major activity for people. People would spend time reading thick books. Then there would be people who would be able to write long articles on subjects of their choice. Raja is one who can write long articles on subjects that interest him. The article for the 5000th post of this blog was a joint writeup by three contributors, starting from Raja. Peevesie’s mom concentrated very hard to read the whole writeup in one go but gave up after going though Raja’s writeup. 🙂 Current generation people do not have that kind of patience. How would Raja describe such low attention span of younger generation ? Something like this (Mirza Musharraf style):

“lahawlwala quwwat…Amma, aaj kal ke bachon ko to tehzeeb-e-intezaar ka zara sa bhi ilm nahin hai….is T20 ne to sabko bigaad rakha hai…hamare zamaane mein baat aur thi…Jab Merchant miya crease par the, to din bhar mein shaayad hi pachaas run bante the.. par unko dekhne ka lutf kuchh aur hi tha…”.

Raja’s writing prowess is noted by all, but few people may have noticed his comments. Whenever I wrote a long article on subjects of my interests (say my pets), I naturally looked for comments. I especially looked for comments by Raja, because Raja writes long and heartwarming comments that have the effect of making the day of the article writer. I cherish his comments that he has written on many of my articles and I often revisit them.

I have taken advantage of Raja’s fondness for Sahir Ludhianvi, Rafi etc and I have sometimes got him to write on them at the eleventh hour. And Raja has always delivered these special writeups promptly and without fail.

We have artists who are moody. Sometimes they do not give any output for many days and sometimes then churn out masterclasses regularly. Raja is like those artists. He is like Dhoni or Misbah ul Haq who would not score runs for many deliveries and then suddenly start dealing in fours and sixes. 🙂 These days he has started to take quick singles. 🙂

Raja tells us that he would often sing songs without realising it, and without noticing its effect on his audience.

In our cricket forum, whenever BCCI (Indian cricket team for he uninitiated) did badly, which was quite a regular thing to happen, Raja and other likeminded cricket followers would come up with hard hitting parodies of appropriate Hindi movie songs. Once we decided to make the screenplay of a masala laden Hindi movie in that forum. I think it was Raja who came up with the lyrics of some masala songs for this movie. 🙂

Raja’s philosophy towards life can be described in this poem that Raja himself came up with sometime back:

na main sant hoon, na tu paak hai
hona to dono ko hi khaak hai
tu bhi jee le, kuchh main bhi jee loon
ek doosre se takraana khatarnaak hai

After remembering the day, one needs to pick a song to greet Raja. Lucky Raja. There are so many songs containing the word Raja that one is spoilt for choice. There are in fact movies which have Raja in the title.

In the past years, I picked some “Raja” songs to greet Raja on his birth anniversary. Even this time, I had selected the perfect song for the occasion that went “Nanhe munne raaja ki saal girah aayi re.”. But guess what ! Raja played spoilsport and discussed this very song, Nanhe munne raaja ki saal girah aayi re (Anand Bhawan) on the occasion of this blog’s anniversary on 19 july 2017 ! It was like a hijacker hijacking himself. 🙂

Being robbed of the perfect Raja birth anniversary song, I had no option but to look for some other song. But why do I need to look for a song with “Raja” in it. there are other songs too that are quite appropriate for the occasion. And so I have picked one such song. It may not have the word Raja in it, and it does not have the Salgirah or its synonyms in the lyrics, but it is a befitting song for the occasion.

Here is this song from “Band Master”(1963). This movie was directed by Ravindra Dave for R L Films, Bombay. This obscure movie had Jagdeep, Azra, Lalita Pawar, Rajan Haksar, Ravikant etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs including the song under question. But on listening to the songs, one can easily identify the voices in all four songs.

Three of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here is the fourth and final song from “Band Master”(1963) to appear in the blog. HFGK may be silent about it, but which music lover will fail to recognise the voice of the one and only Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

I once again take this opportunity to wish Raja a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. May Raja keep bringing sunshine in the lives of all of his praja.

With this song, “Band Master”(1963) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

hum kahin bhi hon
chale aayenge

What an extraordinary promise this is.

We had a small get together of music lovers, earlier in the day today. And for the day it is, part of our conversation revolved around Rafi Sb, and his persona, and his legacy. ‘God’s Own Man’ is the phrase expressed by one of the gathering. Certainly, all people are God’s people. But then some are special. They are ‘God’s Own People’. Humble and giving – the two traits that stand out as shining beacons in this industry that is famous for cutthroat competition, and the rule of money power. So much corruption and cruelty bleeds into it, and in turn, generates more cruelty and heartlessness.

Another year comes along, another 31st of July comes along – and once again, we remember, and pay tribute, to the one and only Rafisaab on this date.
