“Sautan” (1983) was produced and directed by Sawan Kumar Tak. Tghe movie was a “social” movie starring Rajesh Khanna, Padmini Kolhapure, Tina Munim, Pran, Prem Chopra, Shreeram Lagoo, Shashikala, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Arora, Satyendra Kapooo, Roopesh Kumar, Yunus Parvez, T P Jain etc in it.

This movie is remembered the most for its song, Shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal dil mein aaya hai . Purists, such as Raja, heartily dislike this song, but non purist folks, who form the majority of population loved this song. There are lots and lots of people who regard this song as a timeless classic. 🙂

The song was about the mummy of the girl inviting the gentleman for chai, obviously to have a “chai pe charcha”. 🙂 The gentleman, aware what the mummy is up to, is reluctant, but gets himself persuaded to partake of that chai with the mummy.

What happens later ? The song under discussion happens in the aftermath of that event. The gentleman gets married to the lady and soon thereafter we find him singing this song where saasu and sasura are likened to teerath and wife is likened to Chaaron dhaam. 🙂 Every married man with readily agree. 🙂

Here is this song from “Sautan”(1983) which is sung by Kishore Kumar. Sawan Kumar Tak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Teena Munim.

Lyrics

arre saasu teerath

nahin nahin nahin nahin
gharwaali ki hi hi

The Hindi movie music has undergone changes with time. It is seen that the music style of the dominant music director of the era is ofter copied by other music directors. For instance, there were occasions when Madan Mohan, Roshan etc copied the music style of O P Nayyar, whereas Kalyanji Anandji’s music sounded like Shankar Jaikishan during late 1950s to mid 1960s. Music directors copied the music style of R D Burman during 1970s.

1980s was the era of disco music and Bappi Lahiri was the most sought after music director of those days. It was a mixed feeling for music lovers to find senior music directors like Laxmikant Pyarelal composing Bappi Lahiri kind of music during 1970s.

Here is a song where as music director like Khayyam has composed a Bappi Lahiri like song. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and it is picturised on Rajesh Khanna wielding a guitar on stage while many spectators watch his performance. His song seems the have the kind of effect on Jaya Prada (seated among the audience)that this song intended, namely to make her feel like a “bewafa”. Shatrughan Sinha is also seated beside her but he is none the wiser about what is going on in the mind of Jaya Prada.

Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Greetings to dear Atul ji, and best wishes for many many happy returns of today.

The 1977 film ‘Chhaila Baabu’ is joining the ‘Yippeee Club’ of movies or ‘movies having all their songs covered’ on the blog. Indeed, a long wait for me and particularly for this song which was the first that I shared when I was still only a ‘year-old’ contributor on the blog. Other songs of this movie which I shared later were lucky and got posted before the today’s song. This song is the one which I cannot forget since my childhood, may be because this being a ‘mother-son’ song. I must be 9-10 years old when I had watched this movie with my parents in my childhood.

The part-I of this song and even the part-II is on screen performed by Achala Sachdev whom we mainly remember for playing a mother or thereafter grandmother in Yash Raj films. When I glance through the list of the films she acted in I realized that I have watched many of them but cannot recollect now.

Also I found that not much information is available about her on the domain (except there is page on wiki about her) and mainly other articles which were posted after she passed away on 30.12.2012 , and about how she was ignored by the film personalities in her last days. May be our seniors can do a detailed post on her with one of the songs performed by her on screen. Or maybe it is there and I am not aware, if so, please forgive me.

As I am not aware of her initial films and whether she got a lead role or second lead and if at all there are any songs which she performed on screen, except the another one, that I know, is from the 1970 film ‘Heer Ranjha’, where all the Bhabhi’s dance on their devar’s (Rajkumar’s) marriage preparations – ‘Naache Ang Ve . . .’ a beautiful composition by Madan Mohan ji.

Achala Sachdev was born in Peshawar (now in Pakistan) on 3rd May 1920. She acted in over 130 films (as per info on wiki). She began her filmi career with ‘Fashionable Wife’ in 1938 and ‘Na Tum Jaano na Ham’ (2002) was her last film. She died on April 30, 2012 at Pune. She was 91 then.

The move ‘Chhaila Babu’ was Produced by Shomu Mukherjee and Directed by Joy Mukherjee. It was a ‘suspense thriller’. It had Rajesh Khanna in title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, accompanied by Zeenat Aman, Asrani, Ranjeet, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev, Macmohan, P Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor and Om Shivpuri. Since in my earlier write ups about the songs of this movie I have already mentioned about the details of this movie and my nostalgia associated with its’ songs, and so I will not repeat it here.

But something that I would like to mention here is about Joy Mukherjee as a ‘director’ of this movie. Earlier I had read about his directing the movie ‘Humsaaya’ (1968), but I had forgotten about it. Though I must mention here that I had watched many of Joy Mukherjee’s movie in my teen years when I was studying in 11th -12th. And I liked all his movies very much and have watched them repeatedly; especially ‘Shagird’ (1967), ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ (1963), ‘Door Ki Aawaaz’ (1964), and ‘Love In Tokyo’ (1966). In those days i.e. 1983-85, old movie were still being screened in theatres sometime in four shows or noon shows only and they used to run packed houses. Specially in the city of Akola (Maharashtra) (CP & Berar circuit for movies) many old movies used to run packed houses and I watched many old movies during those years there. ‘Ziddi’ (1964) I think I watched on Doordarshan.

I got the VCD of ‘Ek Baar Muskuraa Do’ (1972) just four-five years back from an ‘online’ store. Then I had also watched ‘Love in Shimla’ (1960) during my school days during the weekly screening of movie in our ‘colony recreation club’. And its song Alif Zabar Aa Alif Zer Ae Alif Pesh O ’ has been in my memory since then. I do not remember correctly now if I had watched his ‘Ek Musaafir Ek Haseena’ (1962), but since I have the cassette of this movie, as I like the songs of this movie very much, and maybe I had watched some of its songs on TV, it also remains one of my favorites.

Coming to the songs of his movies – which was another main factor for me to watch his movies repeatedly. Our in house Encyclopedia Shri Arun ji had already done a detailed post on Joy Mukherjee here , while presenting a song from his movie ‘Love In Bombay’ (2013(1971)). This was Joy’s third directorial venture after ‘Humsaaya’ & ‘Chhaila Babu’.

HFGK Vol V mentions that today’s song in three parts and it noted down the first part as a ‘happy version’, whereas from the song one can guess and take it as a ‘sad song’ or ‘missing the beloved song. The first part in its picturization shows the mother (Achala Sachdev) remembering the ‘happy memories’ while singing this song searching for her lost son (Rajesh Khanna). And the in the second part while only the ‘mukhda’ of the first version is repeated only, the third part is in the voice of Kishore Kumar and starts with different lines. However, since HFGK mention this song in three version it was required to watch this movie again and clear the confusion.
[Ed Note: In this presentation, the parts 2 and 3, as mentioned in HFGK, are together presented as part II, as per the video clips.]

When Atul ji was in a ‘Yippeeee’ mode again during the first four months of this year I had sent him reminder for this song and also with a request to throw light on this song if possible. Finally, a week before I watched this movie online (most uncomfortable way to watch a movie for me, but then … we have to 😊).

The 1st part of the song is where the mother, Achala Sachdev is searching for her son, who ‘bachpan mein bichhad gaya’. It includes flashback of the mother-child playing – ‘happy memories’ included 😊. Now when this child grows up as Rajesh Khanna, he remembers this song and use to sing it on the ‘mouth organ’ gifted to him by his mother on his birthday. The second part of Lata for this song is only a repeat of first few lines of the earlier part 1 of this song. And the third part is the Kishore Kumar version of this song, in which the mother-son get re-united.

The earlier songs from the movie are posted on our blog, as per the details given below;

Hullo to all in Atuldom

My post today (27 april 2018) should be read after reading what our dear Rajaji wrote last year in this post of his. In there he has poured a lot of love for the handsome actor- producer- (and lastly) a politician. He has spoken for all the fans of Vinod Khanna.

It is simply unbelievable that a year has passed since this most charming actor passed away. I remember how shocked I was on reading the news on our WhatsApp group that day. The news must have broken on the news channels about noon, around the time when Vividh Bharati – All India Radio’s commercial channel- starts their farmaishie filmy gaane etc. I used to have this habit of listening to this programme, with headphones on, as I commute around (I have stopped it since). Now that day, I was most happy with the content of the programme as every single song was from a Vinod Khanna movie and all of which I simply love. It occurred to me that those songs were being played as a tribute to the departed artist, only when I read all the WA messages on returning home. It was very very saddening. But then life is like that, and apparently Vinod was ill for sometime before his death. And as Rajaji has mentioned in his post last year, there were photographs being shared on social media of a rather sick Vinod, but I always thought that must be a look for some forthcoming movie. But that was not how it was to be.

I cannot forget the look on his face when he is listening to the recorded message from his wife. And then the pain on discovering that his wife has been unfaithful- in Gulzar’s song less wonder “Achanak”. Can remember how he smartly outwits Jeetendra’s father as villain in “Anokhi Ada”. Thinking of him singing “nainon mein darpan hain darpan mein koi dekoon jise subaha shaam” with Saira Banu on a cycle in “Aarop”.

After having made his debut in 1968 through Sunil Dutt’s “Man Ka Meet” and doing roles of secondary characters as Manoj Kumar’s friend in “Purab Aur Paschim”; Shammi Kapoor’s younger brother who loses track of ‘good and bad’ in “Jaan Pehchaan”; an inspector out to nab the smuggler (Rajesh Khanna) in “Sachha Jhootha”; and a few villainous characters we saw him as a confused educated unemployed man in “Mere Apne” which was followed by “Achanak” and a small blink and miss role in “Parichay”- all of which were made by Gulzar. No mention of Vinod Khanna is complete without thinking of the “Jabbar Singh” he played in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh”- he was unforgettable, he is unforgettable, we can’t forget him.

How can we forget him- when the radio plays “priye praneshwari” or “koi hota jisko apna” or “bambai se aaya mera dost” or “ruk jaana nahin tu kahi haarke” or “darbaar mein uparwaale ke” or “bhaagi re bhaagi re brijbala kanha ne pakda rang dala” or “lagi aaj saawan ki phir who jagi hai” and all the other famous and not so famous songs featuring him.

Though his pairing with Amitabh was always enjoyed we cannot forget that he paired well with Feroz Khan, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Sunil Dutt etc. As I was writing this post I wondered if he has never worked with Sanjeev Kumar and I saw that among yesterday’s posts is a song from “Chowkidaar” which had Sanjeev Kumar and VK is also there. The later year heroes Govinda, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan etc also co-starred with him playing an elder brother or father figure to them. He has done more than two movies each with most of the heroines of his era; be it Leena Chandavarkar, Bharati, Saira Banu, Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Parveen Babi, Reena Roy, Shaban Azmi, Rekha, Yogita Bali etc. and in his second innings Dimple Kapadia, Meenakshi, Madhuri, Madhavi, Jaya Prada, Sridevi etc. God, he had a good career and we were well entertained by him.

“Kudrat” was one of the movies where he co-starred Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini. It also had Raaj Kumar and Priya Rajvansh in important roles. It was directed by Chetan Anand and had rebirth as its theme. It had great songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Qateel Shifai and R D Burman was the music director. The song with this post is written by Majrooh and sung by Suresh Wadkar and Asha Bhonsle. It is a typical pahadi folk song performed by local dancers and as is the norm in Indian films the stars in the audience are drawn in to dance and shake a hip or leg with the performers. So, we can see Vinod Khanna starting the dance and trying to drag Hema Malini into it. This is followed by Aruna Irani (who plays the missing link between the two births of the main characters) Rajesh Khanna and Priya joining in. The song is meant to transport Hema into memories of her past birth and give her hints of link between Madho and Paro, Vinod catches Hema staring at Rajesh Khanna. And from here the story moves towards what the purpose of the movie is – getting justice for Madho and Paro (Rajesh and Hema) for the crime done to them by Raaj Kumar, father of Priya in this movie.

Thinking of the handsome Vinod Khanna today.

This is the 900th song of Anand Bakshi as a lyricist in the blog.

When one looks at it, R D Burman, Rajesh Khanna, and Kishore Kumar rose to the top, taking the film world by storm almost simultaneously. In many of these movies, the three in fact worked together as well.

But their careers diverged as far as staying at the top was concerned. While Kishore Kumar remained at the top throughout his life, Rajesh Khanna’s superstardom deserted him by the mid 1970s. R D Burman continued to rule throughout 1970s, before he found himself upstaged, not by better music, but by music of the nature that testified to the fact that the saying “if you cannot dazzle them by brilliance, baffle them by bulshitting” applied to HFM after 1980s. R D Burman could not cope with that kind of music that began the vogue after 11980s and he slowly began to lose ground and assignmet, before finding a late second wind with “1942 a Love Story”(1994) which came a bit too late for him as he has already expired by the time music of this movie began to make waves.

One can notice that while Rajesh Khanna saw a meteoric rise and then fall, R D Burman maintained his brilliance for much longer. If fact, the music that R D Burman created in the second half of 1970s was arguably better that those composed in the first half of 1970s. While majority of R D Burman compositions in first half are inspired by Western music, the second half finds him using more and more Indian kind of music.

“Mehbooba”(1976) is a case in point. The songs of this movie present some very fine examples of semi classical songs. This movie finds R D Burman composing songs based on Raag Bihag, Raag Darbari Kaanda as well as Raag Shivranjani. One of these songs, viz

“Mehbooba”(1976) was produced by Musheer-Riaz andit was directed by Shakti Samanta. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Yogita Bali, Manmohan Krishan, Nazir Hussain, Sujit Kumar, Asrani, Asha Sachdev, Prem Chopra, Meena.T., Harindranath Chattopadhyaya, Chandrashekhar, Leela Mishra, Madan Puri, Master Alankar, Birbal, UmaDutt, Raj Rani, Abhimanyu Sharma, Ram Murti Chaturvedi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. seven of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past. Here are the details of these seven songs posted in the blog:

Parbat ke peeche chambe da gaaon 410 19-Dec-08
Gori tori paijaniya 411 20-Dec-08
Mere naina saawan bhaadon phir bhi mera man pyaasa Multiple version song 480 1-Jan-09
Main tawaayaf hoon mujra karoongi 10692 13-Jan-15
Haseenon mere paas aao 11710 30-Dec-15
Jamuna kinaare aaja chhaliya pukaare aaja 13948 20-Jan-18

That leaves us with the eighth and final song from “Mehbooba”(1976). This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and music is of course composed by R D Burman. It is an extremely sweet and melodious folk music based song which is picturised as a “panghat” song on Hema Malini and sahelis, while Rajesh Khanna looks on from a distance. He acts and grabs Hema Malini’s kalaai only after the song gets over. Good to see him not interrupting the song midway. Our heroes and also villians certainly have taste for HFM music. 🙂

With this song, “Mehbooba”(1976) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

And unnoticeably, R D Burman touches 900 songs as a lyricist in the blog with this spng.

“Dharam Kaanta” (1982) was produced and directed by Sultan Ahmad for Sultan Ahmad Productions, Bombay. The movie had Raaj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Waheeda Rehman, Reena Roy, Sulakshana Pandit, Amjad Khan, Satyen Kappu, Om Prakash, Nazir Hussain, Mukri, Hina Kausar, Nisar Ahmad Khan, Sheetal, Purnima etc in it.

This Daaku-drama tale would not have been out of place if it was released in 1960s, but a story like this was an anachronism in 1980s. If one asks me, even the main actors signed up for this movie were by and large past their sell by date.

The movie had five songs in it. three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Dharam Kaanta” (1982) to appear in the blog. The song is s “villain’s den” genre of song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced by Reena Roy, with other main characters of the movie also present. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Yesterday (7 january 2018) was the birthday of Reena Roy. So this song serves as a belated bithday greetings for her as well.


Song-Teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki (Dharam Kaanta)(1982) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
aa aa aa
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki
haaye
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

tu sharaabi hai
tere haath mein paimaana hai
meri aankhon mein chhalakta hua maikhaana hai
hum wo saaqi hain jo deewaana bana dete hain
jaam khaali ho to nazron se pila dete hain

ye jawani ye ada
iska hai aur nasha
jaam ye jisne piya
mast hokar wo gira
zara nigaah uthha deewaane
jara nigah uthha deewaane
aaj nikal jaaye tamanna dil ki
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
haan
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

pyaar mein jaan ki parwaah nahin ki jaati
dil mein ho dard magar aah nahin ki jaati
pyaar karte hain jo ghar baar luta dete hain
qatl ho jaaye to qaatil ko dua dete hain
kya khabar tujhko bhala
pyaar hai kaisi bala
aag us dil mein lagi
shola is dil mein uthha
ishaara mera samajh le dilbar
ishaara mera samajh le dilbar
baat nahin aisi koi musqil ki
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
haan teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

naam mera bhi hai bijli
muqaddar waala hai
na samjhna ki akela tu hi dilwaala hai
chhed dono mein chalegi to maza aayega
aag se aag milegi to maza aayega
kuchh teri baat bane
kuchh meri baat bane
raat dhalne de zara
phir koi ba bane
kisi ka tu bhi agar ghaayal ho
kisi ka tu bhi agar ghqayal ho
jaanega phir baat kisi ghaayal ki
teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
aa teri meri hai nazar qaatil ki
khair nahin khair nahin mehfil ki

Anand Bakshi- R. D. Burman- Kishore Kumar- Rajesh Khanna. This is one combination that spelt wonders for all Hindi film music lovers across the globe. This is a combo which gave us melodies, in the 70s, in films like Kati Patang, The Train, Apna Desh, Amar Prem, Raja Rani, Namak Haraam, Aap Ki Kasam, Ajnabee etc. The trend followed in the 80s too with movies like Ashanti, Hum Dono (yes there are three films by this name in Bollywood), Awaaz, Alag Alag, etc.

Ok why am I listing all this? Because I have been listening to a lot of RD Burman songs since morning and thinking how his music sounds good even after a lapse of about 35 years. Of course, he did compose music in films in the 90s but most of the movies (with RDB music) post 1988 kept failing at the box office. So much so, that his musical contribution went mostly unnoticed—”Gardish” in 1993 with a song like “Hum na samjhe thhe baat bas itni si khwab seeshe ki duniya pathar ki” etc. The magic seemed to have vanished. An anecdote by Vidoo Vinod Chopra goes like this: he had gone to sign RD for his “1942-A Love Story”. And wen he heard what RD had composed he was not happy with the way it sounded. Vinod Chopra has said in many interviews that RD didn’t know why his music was not working amongst his fans and he was finding it difficult to find his moorings. And the final score that we hear in that movie came out after ‘N’ number of sittings. But unfortunately, RD never lived to enjoy his success post “1942- a Love Story”.

But we, the fans of RD Burman, clutch at any song of his that triggers memories of his great days. And today I have one such song from the 1984 release “Awaaz”. This movie starred Rajesh Khanna, Rakesh Roshan, Suresh Oberoi, Jaya Prada, Supriya Pathak, Amrish Puri, Madan Puri etc. the movie had one other distinction – it was a coming together of the Rajesh- Shakti Samanta team post “Anurodh” in 1977. Today’s song is a party song. Probably a marriage anniversary of Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Prada where we find his sister Supriya Pathak, friend Suresh Oberoi with his wife (in the movie 🙂 ) Beena, and Rakesh Roshan as his to-be brother-in-law enjoying the song. Only one Song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Missing you R D Burman.

Just five days ago, I’d written a post here paying tribute to one of the most loved legends of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, on his birth anniversary. Referred to by many (including me) as Rafisaab, he was a giant in his field. Yet  he remained humble to his last day, never letting success get to his head. He treated everyone with great respect and, in turn, earned the respect of everyone he interacted with.

Today we pay tribute to another legend of the industry on his birth anniversary. Also a superstar in his own right, albeit for a relatively short period of time, he was possibly the best antithesis of Rafisaab in terms of letting success get to his head, treating everyone with great respect, and in turn, earning respect of everyone he interacted with. Thus his career, and his life, turned out to be very different from Rafisaab’s. Everyone goes through ups and downs in his career – and both this person and Rafisaab are not exceptions to this phenomenon.

Yet, even in his “downs”, there were those who stood by Rafisaab. The goodwill he had earned earlier stood him in good stead. On the other hand though, this other legendary person was not so lucky. His airs and rather dismissive (to use the most charitable term I can think of) treatment of others during his heyday, came back to haunt him when he was on his way down.  He hadn’t built enough goodwill, his relationships were damaged – this only hastened his downfall. Although he made a somewhat modest recovery later, and even admitted to his earlier mistakes, his image as an arrogant, even mean and vindictive, person stayed till his last day.

This world can be so unforgiving.

By now, I’m sure everyone knows who I am talking about. The one-time superstar of Hindi cinema, the one who at one time could deliver a superhit even if the main character in his film was an elephant, the one whose mere smile and slight shake of the head had audiences in a swoon, the one who set off a rage of buttoned-up silk kurtas as a fashion trend – yes, I am talking about Rajesh Khanna.

He would have been 75 today if he’d been alive. But he didn’t live to even see 70 – he died in 2012, when still just 69. Although he’d been ailing for a while, news of his death still shocked me – I wrote a blogpost on the occasion on my blog, in tribute to him.

See, here’s the thing. I don’t, for one moment, defend Rajesh Khanna for all his wrongdoings, his arrogance, any charges that anyone might level against him. If true, he must rightly be called out for them.  So  if anyone is trying to troll me by pointing out his failings (this happens sometimes) and expecting me to defend Rajesh Khanna, it won’t work – I will probably wholeheartedly agree with them. I am not living in denial about his misdeeds.

Yet, I can also not deny that Rajesh Khanna’s films provided me with a lot of entertainment and fun in my childhood days, of which I still have very fond memories. It just so happened that his superstar days coincided almost exactly with the time that I was watching Hindi films as a young boy. I have a sort of attachment towards him that is hard to explain –  considering everything else. It of course need not have been so. Atul too is of my era – and he has no such attachment.  Fair enough. I happen to have it – and even now, I sometimes watch videos of Rajesh Khanna songs of that 1969-1973 period, and get transported to that period.

I distinctly remember watching him then in songs like “Gussa Itna Haseen Hai  To Pyar Kaisa Hoga” (‘Maryada’), “Yahaan Wahaan Saare Jahaan Mein Tera Raaj Hai” (‘Aan Milo Sajna’), “Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, and “Pyaar Deewaana Hota Hai” (all three from ‘Kati Patang’ – one of my favourite films at the time),  “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona” (‘Apna Desh’), “Vaada Tera Vaada” (‘Dushman’), “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” (‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’)  and many more songs – and enjoying these songs and his mannerisms a lot.

I was very young then – and initially thought he was singing these songs himself. 🙂 When I was told he was only the actor in front of the camera and that someone else (in this case, Kishore Kumar) was the singer, I remember being a bit disappointed. But that did not take away from the enjoyment of the songs, or his mannerisms, or the films. Later on, when his mannerisms became forced and began to jar, the long hair (which was a fashion at the time)  made him look less appealing to me, and the quality of films too began dropping, the charm wore off, not only for India’s masses, but also for me. (After all, I also belonged to those masses).

But for the memories of those few early years, I have always had a soft corner for Rajesh Khanna. That sideways tilt of the head, that dialogue delivery (check out the dialogue just before the song “Daanton Taley Dabaa Kar Honth” from ‘Doli’ – the video is available on YouTube – and you will know what I mean). These are the memories of him I always keep with me. I have not watched many of his later films – maybe because I want to keep his 1969-73 image in my mind and not  a 1985 one. Having said that, I’ve heard that some of his 1980s films are worth a watch – so I think I will give them a try.

So, to summarise, yes, Rajesh Khanna had a lot of faults – more than probably any other actor. But he also had a meteoric rise that no other actor had – and , while he need not have let success get to his head – he was also only human. Sometimes maybe you do need extremes to make a point.

Maybe it is examples like Rafisaab (or probably for a more modern generation, Rahul Dravid) and Rajesh Khanna that can be held up for youngsters. When you achieve success, make sure you don’t lose your head. Make sure you follow the Rafisaab (or Dravid) example, not the Rajesh Khanna one. I don’t think Rajesh Khanna himself would mind this. Much later in life, he did realize his mistakes – and warned other youngsters not to fall prey to their own success. A lesson learnt the hard way.

Coming to the song for today. As always with Rajesh Khanna songs, I prefer to roll back the years and  go back to the Rajesh Khanna of 1969-73. The film si ‘Joru Ka Ghulaam’ (1972) – one of the films I distinctly remember from my childhood days. It is not one of Rajesh’s biggest hits, but I remember quite liking the film when I saw it. One of its songs,  “Nainon Mein, Nindiya Hai”, was very popular in its time. But the other songs were also fairly well-known, as was not uncommon for songs from Rajesh Khanna films at the time.

The song is “Baras Gayi Re Taras Gayi Re”. I had marked this song for a write-up the last time I wrote about Rajesh Khanna, but at the last minute, I decided to go with “O Monalisa” from ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’. I was a bit surprised to find that this song was still available for posting – so here goes.

The lyrics have been provided by Avinashji, who, as everyone knows is a big Rajesh Khanna fan. Even bigger than I am. So when I decided to write this up, he immediately offered to provide the lyrics. I gladly accepted. Thank you, Avinashji.

Hope you enjoy this song. It is written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 59 # Rajesh Khanna’s 75th birth anniversary
———————————————–——————————————————-

Today 29th December 2017 is the 75th birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (29.12.1942-18.07.2012).

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Chhaila Babu’.

In the year 1977 there were nine movies (including ‘Tyaag’ which was passed by Censor Board in 1976) of Rajesh Khanna as per following;

SNo Movie Year Date Passed by Censor Board
01 Tyaag 1977 29.07.1976 *
02 Anurodh 1977 31.01.1977
03 Chhaila Babu 1977 20.04.1977
04 Karm 1977 27.04.1977
05 Chalta Purza 1977 16.06.1977
06 Hatyara (Special Appearance) 1977 04.07.1977
07 Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka 1977 18.11.1977
08 Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein 1977 04.11.1977
09 Tinku (Special Appearance) 1977 01.12.1977

From the above list one can conclude that this is a list of flop movies, except ‘Chhaila Babu’ which was a ‘commercially successful movie’, though nowhere in the league as Rajesh Khanna’s earlier hit movies.
Movies like ‘Karm’, ‘Anurodh’, and ‘Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein’ were ‘critically acclaimed’ though.

‘Chhaila Babu – 1977’ a ‘suspense thriller’ was a Mukherji Brothers Presentation. It was produced by Shomu Mukherjee who also wrote the story and screenplay of this film.

It was directed by Joy Mukherjee.

It had Rajesh Khanna in title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, and accompanied by Zeenat Amaan, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev and Ranjeet.

Supported by Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor, Mac Mohan, Manmohan, Sherry, Gulshan Arora, Ashim Kumar, Shyam, Guru Darshan, Manik Dutt, Qureshi, Uttam, Yeshraj, Vinod Thakkar, Harun, Johny Whisky, Dhanna, Master Salim, Aziz Asser, Raghubir, Prem and others.

Its lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi, and music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Dialogues of this film were written by Kader Khan and it was edited by B.S. Glaad.

I have vague memories of watching this movie with my parents and vaguely remember the movie’s storyline and songs.
I have earlier shared two songs of this movie ‘Kal raat sadak pe ek ladki ’ and ‘Hamko nikaaloge ghar se sajan pachhtaaoge ’.

The most popular song of this movie Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye was the first song to be posted on the blog and it was discussed by Atul ji way back in 2008 (08.12.2008).

The other two songs were posted on 29.12.2014 and 04.02.2015 respectively.

As per HFGK this movie had total Seven songs (including one multiple version song). But, I think it should be six only. This needs to be checked and shall be discussed in future with the remaining song of this movie). Out of these seven songs we have so far three songs already covered on the blog.

I can say that all the songs from this movie are nice hummable song though only this song Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye could make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ that year in 1977 and so far it had been the most popular song from this movie. It was ranked 18th in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1977.

However, going back to the songs of this movie and listening to them after a gap of so many years is an interesting exercise and it brings back fond memories of those years.

Today’s song ‘main baaboo chhaila’ is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip synced by Rajesh Khanna on screen. The picturisation of this song shows Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Asrani is following them.

After watching the video, I thought it must be shot on the locations in Kashmir (? though not sure), (as the film’s titles do not mention names of any outdoor shooting locations). However, the titles did mention the name of ‘Filmalaya Studios’ where the movie or its parts must have been shot).

Let us revive the magic of ‘Kishore Kumar-Rajesh Khanna’ Jodi, with Kaka’s favorite lyrics writer – Anand Bakshi – there, but for a change – composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us now enjoy today’s song!!

Ye jo apne peechhe daude

“Raja Rani” was a 1973 movie which was directed by Sachin Bhowmik – otherwise known to be a story and screenplay writer; it was produced by Jagdish Kumar.

The movie had a star cast led by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore (who seemed to look younger in this movie as compared to Aradhana of 1969 ??). The supporting cast consisted of David, Iftikar, Raj Mehra, Bhram Bharadwaj, Asit Sen, Suresh, Naaz. Dulari etc. Anand Bakshi wrote songs which tunes by R.D. Burman.

I have seen this movie so long back that it feels like another time and space and age but the synopsis given on Wikipedia helped stir my memory. Here it is:

A young widow commits suicide when she is compelled to forgo her modesty to save her child from illness. The child runs away on seeing his dead mother and becomes a thief named Raja. Raja is a very handsome and intelligent thief who manages to steal and escape from police every time.

He lives with his friend Tony who dreams of marrying his girlfriend Mary. Raja once steals at a home during night and police chase him. To escape from police, he enters into a marriage hall and in the bridegroom’s room. He finds a letter of groom who ran away as he does want to marry the girl his father arranged for him. Raja disguises himself as groom veiling his face with flowers when original groom’s father knocks the door. Raja eventually marries the girl in the marriage hall.

He feels troubled on whatever happened and he escapes from the room during the nuptial night without even seeing who is his wife as she has also veiled her face with wedding dress. The groom’s father and the bride misunderstand that original groom has escaped from the hall. Raja is caught by police and he sent to jail for six months. The original groom dies in an accident on the same night. Nirmala (the girl whom Raja married) is thrown out by her in-laws as she is an unlucky girl because of which their son died. Nirmala returns to her uncle’s home where she is not welcomed due to their financial position. She wanders everywhere and she finds no help from anybody rather try to spoil her modesty. She turns to a courtesan and dances for her living.

Raja is released from jail and he searches for the girl he married. When he does not find the whereabouts of that girl he returns to his normal life of stealing. He hires a room and stays with his friend Tony near the place where Nirmala, now courtesan Rani, resides. Raja visits Rani’s home to escape from police and he sees Rani dancing. Something makes him feel bad and he slaps Rani and throws away one of the clients who tried to misbehave with her. Rani does not get angry but she likes Raja slapping her. Rani and Raja, without knowing about their relation to each other, start to develop a feeling of love towards each other.

Rani insists Raja to stop stealing and Raja insists she stop dancing. Both decide to live a decent life. Rani changes the mind of one of her clients and because of which his wife accepts her as her sister as she saved her husband from doing wrong. Raja finds a job as school van conductor. But he loses his job when the school finds he was thief before. Raja and Rani do a small business of selling snacks but are charged for child theft one day. The father of the child is the man whom Rani changed from becoming bad. Rani and Raja are released and they become good friends of the man’s family.

The wife of the person invites to their child’s birthday party and gives her good saree and necklace to wear on that day. Rani loses the necklace given by the man’s wife. To return the necklace they struggle a lot as it costs in thousands. Raja and Rani are compelled to break the promise made to each other without each other’s knowledge. Raja goes to steal in home and gets caught. He finds Rani dancing in front of the owner of the house. When the owner of the house tries to misbehave with Rani, Raja rushes to save her. In a struggle, the owner is killed and Raja is blamed for that.

Did Raja really kill the owner? What happened to the necklace which both have lost? Did Raja and Rani know who they are to each other? This forms the rest of the story.

Two songs from this movie has been posted so far- one in 2008 and second in 2009, that itself is another age and time. The blog has come a long way since.

Today (8 december 2017) on the occasion of the 73rd birthday of Rinku Tagore alias Begum Ayesha Sultana wife of ex-Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. Ok let me make it simple. It is Sharmila Tagore’s birthday. She is a descendent of Rabindranath Tagore as both her parents were grand children of Rabindranath’s maternal and paternal brothers.

On researching about Sharmila I found that the little girl in Tapan Sinha’s 1957 ‘Kabuliwala’was her sister Tinku Tagore. Her children Saif and Soha have also followed in her footsteps to become actors of repute and even her daughter and son in-laws are actors of repute- Kareena and Kunal Khemmu.

Today’s song sees her with Rajesh Khanna walking the streets and beaches of Mumbai playback is by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics

hmmm
hmmm

chori chori le chala main
tumko tumse hi churaa ke

tu mera raaja
main teri raani
chal padi main saath tere
saari duniya ko bhula ke

main teri raani
tu mera raaja

ham donon ne dekha hai ek sapna
kahin pe chhota sa ek ghar hai apna
o ham donon ne dekha hai ek sapna
kahin pe chhota sa ek ghar hai apna

aangan mein utri hai chaandni raatein
ham baithhe karte hain prem ki baatein
ye baatein
ye raatein
bhool jaayen hum
toh hamen
yaad dilaana
ho bhool na jaana
kya
main ek chor
tu meri raani
main ek chor
tu meri raani
chori chori le chala main
tumko tumse hi churaa ke
main ek chor
tu meri raani
main ek chor

kismat ne toh hamko dukh hi baante
apne raste mein bikhraaye kaante
kismat ne toh hamko dukh hi baante
apne raste mein bikhraaye kaante
ho
hamne sajaai pyaar se apni galiyaan
kaante chun chun ke bikhraayi kaliyaan
ye kaliyaan ye galiyaan
bhool jaayen ham
toh hamen
yaad dilaana
ho bhool na jaana

kya
tu mera raaja
main teri raani
tu mera raaja
main teri raani
chal padi main saath tere
saari duniya ko bhula ke
tu mera raaja
main teri raani
tu mera raaja

main ek chor
tu meri raani
main ek chor
tu meri raani
chori chori le chala main
tumko tumse hi churaa ke
mai ek chor
tu meri raani
tu mera raaja
tu meri raani
tu mera raaja
tu meri raani
