Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Today 18th July’2021 is the ninth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Rajesh Khanna (29 December 1942- 18 July 2012). He passed away on 18th July’2012 in Mumbai.

On this occasion we pay our tributes to him and remember him with a song from one of his movies.

In this episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon – 8’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies of the year ‘1981’. In the year 1981 following six movies of Rajesh Khanna were released (including Naseeb* where he had a friendly appearance).

05 Naseeb** Manmohan Desai 17.03.1981
06 Qudarat Chetan Anand 27.02.1981

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 6’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and challenging himself in his ‘second innings’. In ‘1981’ he further capitalizes on the success of his movies like ‘Amardeep-1979’,’Thodisi Bewafaai-1980’, and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose-1980’, ‘Phir Wohi Raat-1980’, and ‘Bandish-1980’.

In ‘1981’ he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil E Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’ that had moderate to decent success at the box office and they received critical acclaim.

That all happened forty years ago !

If we go back even further by another ten years, that takes us to ‘1971’. 1971 is behind us by fifty years from now, viz half a century !

That was when Rajesh Khanna ‘era’ was at its zenith. Here is the list of Rajesh Khanna movies released in the year ‘1971’.

(*guest appearance, ** friendly/special appearance)

We notice that all the above movies had great music as was the norm for Kaka movies.

Coming back to today’s song it is from the movie ‘1981’ movie ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

From the movies of Rajesh Khanna released in 1981 the movies ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwaan’, ‘Dil E Naadaan’, and ‘Qudrat’ have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. So, we only have this movie ‘Fifty-Fifty’ left to pick a Rajesh Khanna song from.

Tina Munim was the heroine of Rajesh Khanna in this movie, which was their first movie together. It laid the foundation for their further professional and personal chemistry on-screen and off-screen. That way this movie has a special place in the film career of Rajesh Khanna. That is the reason why I have selected a song from this movie for today’s presentation.

‘Fifty-Fifty’ was directed by Shomu Mukherji who also the producer of this movie.

This movie’s star-cast included Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Kader Khan, Ranjeet, Om Shivpuri, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherjee, Anita Guha, Poornima, P. Jairaj, Sundar Taneja, C.S. Dubey, Jankidas, Shaikh, V. Malhotra, Roopesh Kumar, Shashi Kiran, Anu Dhawan, Johny Whisky, Arvind, Miss Nikki, Kumar, Amid, Jagdeep, Mushtaq, Maruti, Bhagwan Dada, Kamrana, Amar Nath, Mangal Singh, Shyam, Vikram Sharma, Miss Neelu, Master Sakha, Baby Pinky, Teerath and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1981.

“Fifty-Fifty” had seven songs including one three-part song. Lyrics for all the songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

In today’s song Rajesh Khanna is lip-syncing in the voice of Amit Kumar while Tina Munim lip-syncs in the voice of Asha Bhonsle.

Some other artists too can be seen in the picturisation of this Marathi folk dance song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song where Kaka can be seen performing with trademark jigs. 😊

Hullo Atuldom

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” is a title that has been used twice in Bollywood- in 1967 and 1989. The 1967 film had a cast of Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Biswajeet etc and had music by Madan Mohan for songs written by Kaifi Azmi. This was directed and produced by Jagdev Bhambri.
The 1989 film had Rajesh Khanna leading a cast of Neelam, Chunky Pandey, Om Shivpuri, Shafi Inamdaar, Navin Nischol and Dipika Chikhalia in a special appearance. It had music by Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. This one was directed by Sikander Bharti and produced by Rajeev Kumar Choudhry.

The content in both the films seem to be different going by the synopsis available on the internet. But I know for a fact that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1989) was majorly inspired by the 1969 Balraj Sahni- Sadhana- Sanjay Khan starrer “Ek Phool Do Mail”. This statement of mine is sufficient to give the followers an idea about the movie, correct? Of course, there were minor differences in the story. In “Ek Phool Do Mali” (EPDM) Sadhana becomes an unwed mother because she is molested, whereas “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (GKC) had Neelam getting pregnant with Chunky Pandey’s child. In EPDM Sanjay was a mountaineer and GKC had Chunky as a racing enthusiast. Rest of the story was same in both the movies. And both movies had melodious songs.

GKC had eight songs with two songs having happy and sad versions. “Tutak tutak tutak tutiya” was very popular when the movie had released and I think it was inspired by some Punjabi folk song; this one had two versions. Another song ‘yeh kismat hai kya, jaanta hai wahi’ also had two versions. The happy version is when Kumar (Rajesh Khanna) is celebrating his happiness with wife (Deepika) and friends. We see that this song is echoing the thoughts that Dilip Kumar and Shammi Kapoor had put forth in this song.

In the second version we have Rajesh Khanna singing out his life experiences, and says ‘ek thokar lagi, toota sara nasha’.

Bappi Lahiri used Mohammad Aziz, Amit Kumar and Sapna Mukherjee (youtube is crediting Alka Yagnik for this song, need confirmation) for this song and Alisha Chinai and Amit Kumar for ‘Tutak tutak tutiya’. Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Sarika Kapoor (another new name, for me at least) were the other playback singers.
Mohammad Aziz who sang the sad version of today’s song would have celebrated his 67th birthday on July 2nd. He was born in Kolkatta. He sang, primarily, in Hindi, Bengali and Odia films plus some Sufi devotional songs and also various genres in 10 other languages. He was also credited as Munna in some movies. ‘Mard’ by Anu Malik was his breakthrough though the 1984 movie ‘Amber’ with music by Sapan-Jagmohan was his debut in Bollywood. He has sung alongside all the prominent singers of the ’80s and ’90s with music composed by RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Ravindra Jain, Raamlaxman etc; even OP Nayyar and Naushad.

Amit Kumar who has sung the duet with Sapna Mukherjee (or it could be Alka Yagnik, as per the tagging on youtube) celebrates his birthday on July 3rd turns 69!!!!! Is it so!!!!! Unbelieveable!!!! Cannot think of some people as aging, right no 🙂

We have enough fans of Amit Kumar on this blog and everyone knows his history, lineage etc. His last film appearance was in the 1989 release ‘Mamta Ki Chhaon’ which was a movie left incomplete by Kishore Kumar-his father. He had acted in many movies made by his father beginning with “Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” in 1964. He won the Filmfare award for best singer in 1982 for the 1981 release “Love Story”.

Here is remembering Munna a.k.a Mohammad Aziz on his birth anniversary and Wishing Amit Kumar many more Happy Returns. May he continue to entertain us. He is launching a special RD Burman tribute on his birth-date on his YouTube channel… looking forward to it

Happy version (Duet)

Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz)

Song-Ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1989) Singers-Alka Yagnik/ Sapna Mukherjee, Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

Happy version

aadmi kismat se kya
lad paayega bolo yahaan
darr ke kismat se ruka hai
iss zameen pe aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
hooo ooooo
ooooo
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hai wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

jitne oonche ho insaan ke hausle
utne oonche mahal uske kadmon taley
ho jitne oonche ho insaan ke housle
utne unche mahal uske kadmon taley

jinki mehenat ke dam se mahal hai khade
unko rehne ko milte hai kyon jhonpde
unki mehenat main ye akal shaamil na thhi
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
uski mehenat mein hogi kahi kuchh kami
warna kya hai jo kar na sake aadmi

aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banaayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

aaj ka aadmi chaand ko chhoo saka
phir bhi dharti ko khushaal na kar saka
yahaan mehenat se sholon pe bhi gul khile
buri kismat se barsaat mein ghar jale
aaa aaaa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa
ye takraar sadiyon se yoonhi chale
magar ho sake na kabhi faisle
ye sach hai ki mehnat se sab kuchh miley
magar jab ye kismat yahaan saath de
na mehenat hai chhoti na kismat badi
hai donon ke dam pe ye duniya khadi
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain khadi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

——————————————–
Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz )
——————————————–

har dua ek baddua
kyun ban gayi,
pal mein yahaan
bewafa kismat bhi,
uthth gaya sar se aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

ye kismat hai karti ajab faisle
yahaan milke sab kuchh
bhi kuchh na miley
bhatakti hai yoon dar-badar zindagi
ke marke bhi insaan mar na sakey
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri

ek thhokar lagi toota saara nasha
ab hai jaanaa kahaan kuchh nahin hai pata
laake kismat ne chhoda hai kis mod par
jo musaafir thha khud ban gaya raasta
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
