Today’s song is from the film “Hum bhi kuchh kam nahin” -1958.

The film, as per its story belongs to a Costume and imaginary genre, but HFGK mentions it as a ” Social ” film. I wonder why ? The cast of the film consisted of Ameeta, Ranjan, Sumitra, P. Kailash, Kanu Roy, Majnu, Ram Avtar, Manju and others. The 7 songs of this film were written by Anand Bakshi, Rahil Gorakhpuri, Kaif Irfani and Sharki Bhopali. The lyricist Rahil Gorakhpuri wrote 30 songs in 12 films from Sun to le haseena-58 to Aaja Sanam-75. In addition, as Anwar in the pair Javed-Anwar, he wrote songs in 8 films. Javed in this pair was Manohar Lal Khanna – father of Composer Usha Khanna. The Music Director for today’s film was S.D.Batish. The film was directed by Raman Desai.

Now, this name Raman Desai is a strong case of ” Same Name Confusion”, because there was another Hindi film Director Raman Desai operating during the same period. Their fathers’ names were different but never mentioned anywhere. Sometimes Raman Desai of today’s film was mentioned as Raman Lal Desai in the film credits-like this film. With this small clue, I found out information about these two film directors to differentiate them from each others. Here we go….
RAMAN (Lalbhai) DESAI

Ramanlal Lalbhai Desai was born on 6-9-1915 at Ahmedabad ( some sources indicate different year and place). His father was a Station master in the BBCI Railway ( Bombay-Baroda and Central India Railway). He was educated in Bombay and he studied up to Inter-Arts. He soon left his studies to work as an assistant cameraman and assistant Director, in Paramount Pictures for Thief of Baghdad-34. In 1935 he shifted to Ganesh Movietone but came back to Paramount. He was assistant director in Fairy of the flute-36, Guru Ghantal-37 ,Black ghost-37, Burqawali-36, Aladdin-33, Vagabond lover-38, Madhur bansari-39 etc. He co-directed films like Patriot-37, Darpan-41 and Mere Saajan-41, in Rex Pictures. He was a good editor and a musician.

He became a full fledged Director with Daughter of the jungle-42, Mohabbat ki jeet-43, Circus girl-43, Bhagata Bhoot-43, Rangila Dost-44, Aadhar-45, Qismat ka Dhani-46, Jadui putali-46, Tiger man-47, Naqli Heera-48, Dhanwale-48, Dilwale-48, Roshni-49,Sangeeta-50, Aab e Hayaat-55, Hum bhi kuch kam nahin -58, Minister-59 and Jalim tera jawab nahin-60. He turned to Gujarati films and directed Sole saaj singar-77 and Kul deepak-78.
He was working as a Production supervisor for the film Nastik-54 (credited).

(Thanks to Shri. Harish Raghuwanshi ji for some info used here along with my notes).

RAMAN (Bhimbhai) DESAI

Raman B Desai was born in Bilimora, Gujarat, on 28-4-1918. At the age of 20 years, he joined Wadia Movietone as an assistant Director. He assisted Director Chaturbhuj Doshi for quite some time.

He became an independent Director with Pehli Pehchan in 1947. Then came Narad Muni-49, Raja Harishchandra-52, Hari Darshan-53, Naag Panchami-53, Chakradhari-54, Rajyogi Bharthari-54, Navaratri-55, Waman Avatar-55, Ram Navami-56, Naag Mani-57, Chandi Pooja-57, Grihalaxmi-59 (he also produced it) and Amar jyoti-1965. He also directed 6 Gujarati films. Due to his expertise in religious films, he was known as ” King of Mythological Films”.

Raman B Desai expired on 22-12-1997. ( He should not be mistaken for another director Raman Lal Desai, who operated in the same period and directed films like Aab-e-Hayaat-55 and Sangeeta-50 etc).

The name KANU ROY in today’s film cast is another instance of ” Same name confusion “. There was a composer (and an actor also) by the name Kanu Roy who gave music in a few films. Most people and many internet sites, including IMDB, consider these two different persons as one and claim films for acting and music together, as if he was an actor and a composer – a Two In One person !

In Hindi films this happened routinely, but in the early era of Talkie films. Master Krishna rao, Vinayak rao Patwardhan, Master Mohammed, Badriprashad, Vithaldas Panchotiya etc can be quoted as actor/composers. Lately, only the name of Kishore Kumar comes to mind in this category, off hand. Let us see who these two Kanu Roys were…

Kanu Roy (the Actor) was in reality a name for Nalini Ranjan Roy, born at Jabalpore. He was very fond of acting and so landed at Bombay Talkies,a company started by 2 Benagalese- Himanshu Roy and Devika Rani. Those days many people from Bengal used to come to Bombay Talkies, but only the capable ones like Amiya Chakravarty, Shashadhar Mukherjee or Ashok Kumar etc could make their careers here. Kanu Roy started his acting career with the film Basant-1942. His name Nalini was sounding like a Girl’s name in Bombay ( there were already a dozen Nalinis working in films those days), so it was changed and he opted for Kanu, his pet name in the house. Thus Kanu Roy came into films. Due to his good looks, he even became a lead actor in a few films. Nazrana-46 (UR) was one such film where he was working opposite Kamini Kaushal. Kanu Roy worked in 46 films from 42 to 83 ( kisi se naa kehna). Kanu Roy also left Bombay Talkies along with S.Mukherjee and others and joined Filmistan. He was in many Filmistan films like, Mahal, Munim ji, Nastik, Naagin, Jagriti etc. He acted in a Bangla film ‘Samar’too in 1950.

The other Kanu Roy (MD) was an extremely talented music composer of Bengali and Hindi cinema during 1960s and 1970s.. An unsung hero of Indian cinema, despite giving some wonderful songs to Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey, he got very little opportunities in Hindi cinema. He composed songs for Basu Battacharya’s introspective trilogy on marital discord in an urban setting, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Avishkar’ and ‘Griha Pravesh’ in the 1970s, and best remembered for giving the last but finest songs to Geeta Dutt – Meri Jaan Mujhe Jaan Na Kaho, Koi Chupke Se Aake and Mera Dil Jo Mera Hota. Ironically she died 6 months after she made a comeback to playback singing for the last time.

Kanu Roy hailed from West Bengal. He was born on 9th December 1912, in a poor family in the outskirts of Kolkata. During his early days he worked as a welder at Howrah Bridge, engaged in repairing work of the bridge. He worked as an assistant to Salil Chowdhury during his early days. As a full-fledged music composer, Basu Battacharya introduced him to Hindi cinema through Uski Kahani in 1966. He gave some of the finest songs to Geeta Dutt such as three songs of Anubhav (her last and final recordings), Aaj Ki Kali Ghata of Uski Kahani etc. He also composed music for Shyamla, which was recensored as Woh phir na aayee in 1981. ‘Geeton Ki Duniya Mein Sargam’ and ‘Khali Pyala Dhundla Darpan’ of Sparsh, ‘Hasne Ki Chaah’ of Aavishkar and ‘Boliye Surilee Boliyan’ of Grihapravesh are memorable songs of Kanu Roy. He gave music to only 8 films, namely Uski kahani-66, Anubhav-71, Avishkar-74, umhara kallu-75, Mayuri-75, Shyamala-79, Griha Pravesh-79 and Sparsh-1980.

He passed away on December 20, 1981, aged 69. . A less-known but extremely talented music director, very little data is available about him on net, In his colleague Gulzar’s words he was a simple person with a humming song always on his lips, and that he never quarreled or mingled with others. Some people and sites describe him as Geeta Dutt’s brother, but he was not her brother. Her brother was Mukul Roy.

HUM BHI KUCHH KAM NAHEEN-1958 was a typical B grade film specially made for the front benchers. As these types of films go, it had a story of king, vazir, a rebel, a princess, a joker, stunt fight, few good songs and lot of big animals like,Horses,Elephants tigers etc.

The hero was Ranjan(Ramnarayan Venkatramana Sarma, born in Madras in 1918 and died in USA in 1983) whose name spelt lot of Sword fighting(in real life too Ranjan was an expert Sword fighter).His name guaranteed lot of fighting,stunts and duet songs around trees.In this film also all this was present.
The story, s/play and dialogues were by Ramprakash Ashk.The music was by S.D.Batish who started his singing career in 1944 and Composer career in 1948 with Chupke chupke.Then came Balma, Patjhad, Khush Raho, Bahu beti, betaab, Amar kirtan, Rooprekha, Haar jeet, Toofan, Deewar, Ek arman mera, Saajish, Tipu sultan, Jalim tera jawab nahin, etc. He gave music as Nirmal Kumar in Lal Nishan and Nakhrewali also.

Batish who shifted to UK in 1964,moved to Santacruz,California-USA,in 1970 till he died there in 2006.(He used to say,’ I shifted from Santacruz,Bombay to Santacruz USA’).

Usman(Ranjan) and Mamubhai(Majnu) were fast friends.Usman was a young manwho did nothing, Mamu was King’s employee.Yar Khan(P.Kailash) the evil and crook Vazir of the king was waiting for a chance to usurp the throne.He kidnapped Zubeida(Manju),sister of Usman and took her to his palace where she commits a suicide.Now Usman wants his revenge.

Princess Zarina(Ameeta) is returning from her hunting trip.She is attacked by Yarkhan’s goons,but Usman saves her.They dutifully fall in love and she promises to help him.When the y reach the palace Usman is attacked by Yar khan’s soldiers but is saved by Zarina.There is Salma(Sumitra) court dancer,who also loves Usman and promises her help.

Finally Yar khan, croockedly captures both Usman and the King and blackmails Zarina to marry him or else……
Salma,Mamubhai and other loyalists rescue Usman.There is a terrific Sword fighting(obviously to use Ranjan’s skills) in which Yar khan is killed by Usman.The king returns with a bandbaja and Usman gets the job of Vazir and princess Zarina as his salary.

Today’s song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhosle and obviously is a Road Show song. Enjoy….

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # A tribute to lyricist Verma Malik#
————————————

Today 15th March’2022 is the thirteenth Remembrance anniversary of lyricist Verma Malik (13 April 1925 – 15 March 2009).

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Be-imaan’. All songs for this movie were written by Verma Malik.

For today’s presentation I was looking for a song specially from the seventies and the year ‘1972’, as we are already celebrating ‘fifty’ years of the year ‘1972’.

‘Be-imaan’ had all the songs penned by Verma Malik and had also brought him his second ‘Filmfare’ award too.

Secondly, other than its songs the movie was also the most ‘controversial’ movie of that year because of the way it was adjusted the winner of best movie award at the filmfare awards function at the expense of other more desrving movies.

“Beimaan-1972” was directed by Sohan Lal Kanwar for his home productions ‘Filmnagar, Bombay’.

It had Manoj Kumar, Rakhi, Nazeema, Snehlata, Prem Chopra, Prem Nath, Pran, Murad, Sulochana, Raj Mehra, Brahm Bharadwaj, Gulshan Bawra, Rajpal, Sahbeena, Dulari, Sudarshan Sethi, Aarti, Vishal Dutt, O.P. Kohli, Tun Tun, V. Gopal, Rajrani, Sheikh, Ravi Thakur, Kamaldeep, Lata Bose, Kedar Sehgal, Deepak, Sikander Lamba, Parvez, Ayyub, Shankar, Ramesh, Khodu Baba, Mustafa, Uma, Neeta, and others.

(HFGK Vol-V (1971-981) mentions 05.06.1972 as the date of certification by Censor Board of this movie. However, the version of this movie available on internet mentions 28.11.1972 as the certification date by Censor Board.)

“Beimaan” had seven songs written by Vermal Malik and composed to music by Shankar-Jaikishan.
Following is the list of songs of this movie as given in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Na izzat ki chinta…jai bolo beimaan ki Mukesh, chorus 07.02.2013
02 Ye raakhi bandhan hai aisa Lata, Mukesh 24.08.2010
03 Neela neela kurta, chudidar pajama Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Chorus
04 Chali saj ke hai dil ko mila ke Sharda, Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Dekho ji raat ko zulam ho gaya Asha Bhonsle 23.09.2016
06 Bam ragad… ham do mast malang pilaayen bhar bhar thhande jaam Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor Being discussed today
07 Kitni kism ki beimaani… jai bolo beimaan ki Mukesh 07.02.2013

The title song of this movie ‘Jai bolo beimaan ki’ stood sixth in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1972. Other than this the ‘raakhi’ song of the movie was also a very popular song.

I had a big nostalgia of the songs of this movie because one of my uncles had brought the Record Player and he had a LP record of this movie songs. When I started my own music collection, I had a big attraction for the songs of this movie and the other Manoj Kumar movie ‘Pehchaan-1970’. Audio cassettes were generally available for ‘Pehchaan-Beimaan’ songs in one cassette.

I think the songs of ‘Pehchaan-1970’ were also very popular and heard frequently on ‘Radio’ then. My Uncles used to remind me of the ‘ye gangaram ki samajh’ song every time during a family ‘get-together’. They said that they used to tease me with this song when I was a child and was ‘quite’ a healthy child 😊 (I don’t know why I used to be annoyed then on people calling me ‘Gangaram’ 😊)

Coming back to today’s song from ‘Beimaan-1972’, the picturisation shows Pran and Manoj Kumar lip-sync the song in the voices of Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor respectively.

The situation and context of the song is anybody’s guess.

Other than Manoj Kumar and Pran, the picturisation shows one actress whom I am unable to identif. Many other artists are visible in the picturisation of this song.

Let us now listen to today’s entertaining song and pay our tributes to lyricist Verma Malik.

This song also reminds me another song of Manoj Kumar-Pran ‘jodi’ in the similar situations in the movie ‘Dus Numberi’ and the song is ‘na tum ho yaar aalu naa ham hai yaar gobhi’ .

Rajesh Khanna – Birth Anniversary on 29/12/2020
—————————————————————-

Rajesh Khanna, the first superstar of hindi films, was born as Jatin Khanna on 29/12/1942 at Amritsar, Punjab. He is said to have had 17 solo hits from 1969 to 1971. This might be the only thing where Rajesh Khanna is ahead of superstar of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan. He holds the record of 48 Platinum Jubilee hits and 26 Golden jubilee hits plus 22 silver jubilee hits. Certainly overtook the Silver Jubilee star Rajendra Kumar in a big way, who had 25 silver Jubilees in his time.

Not, really having lived through the era of ‘Rajesh Khanna phenomena’, makes the experience that much less effective, but I have read a lot about it in urdu film magazine “Shama”. I can also vouch for his versatility as actor, who was comfortable in any type of character. Even through the superstardom, the quality of real story based meaningful films was maintained. With his performance in films like Anand, Safar, Khamoshi, Bawarchi, Mere Jeewan saathi, Amar Prem, Aradhana, Bahaaron ke Sapne, Namak Haram etc. he proved his mettle as an versatile actor.

As a tribute on his 78th birth anniversary, I am presenting a song from ‘Disco Dancer’ 1982, where Rajesh Khanna had a special appearance. There are quite a few special appearances and guest appearances in his filmography, which shows he did remember the benefactors in his life and did return the favours if he could. He did many number of films with Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Manmohan Desai, J. Om Prakash and Shakti Samant.

The song is a multiple version song, composed by Bappi Lahiri and written by Anjaan. Suresh Wadkar is giving playback to Rajesh Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar is singing for a child artist playing the young Mithun Chakravorty. This happy version is a ‘road side tamasha’ category song as Rajesh Khanna and the child perform in the streets. The child artist could be Baby Pinky. The sad version is a climax situation song in the auditorium, where again Rajesh Khanna is trying to coax a grown up disco star Mithun Chakravorty to start singing. This is a solo version of Suresh Wadkar.

A Trivia about this film:
Rajesh Khanna agreed to make a small appearance in this film without charging a fee. He did so to return a favour he owed to the film’s producer, director B. Subhash. It was Subhash who had recommended Rajesh Khanna to the producers of “Thodi si Bewafaii” (1980) when they were considering Sanjeev Kumar for the film’s lead role. The success of “Thodi si Bewafaii” helped stabilise Khanna’s career at a time when his films were bombing one after the other.

These two songs from this film are so far posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Krishna dharti pe aa jaa tu 12 April 201
I am a Disco dancer 16 June 2018

A last memory about Rajesh Khanna is a poetry loving character who is seen carrying around and reading a small book of Urdu poetry in this song of ‘Anand’. The book could be Sahir Ludhianvi’s “Parchhaiyaan”, but I am not sure.

It is a great tribute to the love of the language if a Bengali set up film shows a book in urdu script. The Bengali itself being a rich language, literature wise and status wise. It could have been Rajesh Khanna’s own choice.

“Ek Phool Ek Bhool”(1968) was directed by Kidar Kapoor. This “social drama” had Dev Kumar, Zeb Rehman, Jayanti, Sudhir, Madan Puri, KN Singh, Helen, Dulari, Sunder etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog. Both songs were covered in 2012 and after that there has been no activity for songs of this movie in the blog,

After the passage of eight years, here is another song from “Ek Phool Ek Bhool”(1968) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is picturised as a roadside tamasha song where a lady performs a dance song, assisted by a few colleagues accompanying her on musical instruments like dholak etc. A group of bystanders dutyfully gather around the performers in a circle. The most well known song of this genre is the “Zanjeer” (1973) song- Deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye .

I am unable to identify the lady performing the dance while the lead pair look on as part of the audience. I can identify Birbal as the dholakiya. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other artists seen in the picturisation.

Song-O kahaan leke dil chale (Ek Phool Ek Bhool)(1968) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

o kahaan leke dil chale mere sainya manchale
o kahaan leke dil chale mere sainya manchale
kaahe ko itni doori
laga bhi lo gale
o kahaan leke dil chale mere sainya manchale
o kahaan leke dil chale mere sainya manchale

rok lenge tumhen nainon ke teer se
nainon ke teer se
baandh lenge ji zulfon ki zanjeer se
ae ji zanjeer se
na tum ja sakoge door na rahenge faasle
na tum ja sakoge door na rahenge faasle
kaahe ko itni doori
laga bhi lo gale
o kahaan leke dil chale mere saiya manchale

aaj tak tumne mujhse kinaara kiya
haan kinaara kiya
phir bhi dekho tumhen maine pa hi liya
haan jee pa hi liya
sooni sooni raahon mein diye pyaar ke jale
o sooni sooni raahon mein diye pyaar ke jale
kaahe ko itni doori
laga bhi lo gale
o kahaan leke dil chale mere sainya manchale

roothhi ye chutkiyon mein mana lenge hum
haan mana lenge hum
aur apna tumhe phir bana lenge hum
haan bana lenge hum
sachche kar lenge sapne
jo sapne aankhon mein paley
sachche kar lenge sapne
jo sapne aankhon mein paley
kaahe ko itni doori laga bhi lo gale
o kahaan leke dil chale
mere sainya manchale
o kahaan leke dil chale
mere sainya manchale

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 19

29/09/2020 – 88th birth anniversary of Mehmood
—————————————————————
Mehmood Ali (29 September 1932 – 23 July 2004), popularly known simply as Mehmood, was an Indian actor, writer, singer, director and producer best known for playing comic roles in Hindi films. Today we are celebrating his 88th birth anniversary. Only other person I can think of with so many talents is Kishore Kumar. Even that I am not sure if, Kishore Kumar ever wrote any film stories though he is credited as a song writer, I think.

A veteran of 300 films, he can be called India’s national comedian, some may differ. But to differ is everyone’s not so basic right. The premise for calling him the national comedian are many, one of them could be this fact that he has 25 filmfare nominations. That amounts to at least one nomination every year from 1954 onwards. It is not so straight forward. As per information given on Wikipedia, the award for Best performance in a comic role started only in 1967. So Mehmood was nominated for Best supporting actor 6 times between 1954 and 1966. Rest of the nineteen nominations could be in continuation up to 1985. By late 70’s Mehmood significance as a comedien or a need for a comedien in films had diminished. From late 70’s the comic character as well as a Vamp/dancer character were diminishing, as the heroes and heroine’s usurped them. For a while there, a thought struck that, if they could they would have done away with playback singers too, if they could. Than playback singers also would have been out of the work force as well with the defunct comic actor and dancer/vamp starlets. Fanciful thoughts these.

If the ‘Best performance in a comic role’ is initiated as late as 1967, many like Agha, Bhagwan and Johnny Walker missed out on them. In the 90’s we did see, some heroes nominated for “Best performance in a Negative role”, “ Best performance in a comic role” etc.

Back to Mehmood who started his career as a child artist, in “Qismat” 1943. He produced a number of films, story of some of them like ‘Ek baap chhe bête”,’Bhoot Bangla” “Safed ghoda kaala sawaar” & “ Janta Hawaldar”. So this was a talented and multi-faceted personalty. Many memorable character and comedy with a twist of tragedy roles assessed by Mehmood are too many to list. The youngest brother of ‘Beti-Bete”, the international faqeer in ‘Aankhen”, the kabaadiwala son in law in ‘Neel Kamal”, to the madrasi music teacher in “Padosan”, to the recalcitrant son to Om Prakash who has a passion for filmmaking in “Pyaar kiye jaa”, and the kaala, dilwala in “Gumnaam”. The difference from other comic actors and Mehmood is the versatility of his talents, and he was usually accompanied by a love interest in the films. There was a parallel story going on with these comic actors, side by side with the main story. Even in the not so run of the mill films, this was a regular thing. And songs to sing is a foregone conclusion, romantic or comic.

After a few lack luster recent post, I have made some special efforts here in this posts, to make some observations of my own. It may be the 50’s Rafi song, which brings this out of me. I had begun to feel jaded and incinerated, with so many 80’s and 90’s , even 70’s songs I have written the posts for recently.

It feels good to go back to the 50’s. The song in question is from “Mr. Qartoon MA”(1958). Rafi Sahab is singing here for both Mehmood and Johnny Walker. Johny Walker and Mehmood are disguised as sadhu’s and singing this song on the street, in front of their love interest’s hostel or house. The song is special for being a comic song, roadside tamasha song, sadhu’s song, disguise song etc etc. The music director for this film O. P. Nayyar and surprisingly lyricist is Hasrat Jaipuri, on his rare picnic outside the Shankar-Jaikshan. Not that anyone is complaining, if it gives us songs like ‘Tere Ghar Ke saamne” when Hasrat Jaipuri ventured out of the foursome fold.

I have had the fortune of posting a few O. P. Nayyar songs in the distant past, but before this post cannot recall any songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri, for which I have written a post. Also the posts for Shankar-Jaikishan songs, are rare ones for me.

The audio and film version are slightly different in this song. Audio is shorter than the film version and a line in the mukhda which is repeated is changed as “ab hari om”.

These four songs from this film are already posted in the blog:

Chanda chaley jhoom ke baadarwa ko choom ke
Dil tera deewaana o mastaani bulbul
Main main main main cartoon Multiple part song
Mera dil ghabraaye meri aankh sharmaaye

This is song no. 19 in series of Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II), also a tribute for Mehmood. I don’t want to repeat my earlier requests for having a separate category tag for ‘Mehmood” song. I see that there is one such tag for Johny walker song. The is a need for ‘Agha song” also for that matter. Many all-time classic songs are sung onscreen by these comic actors.

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 17
————————————————————————–
20/08/2020 – Death anniversary of Avinash Vyas
———————————————————————————–

The names of both Avinash Vyas and Bharat Vyas remind everyone of mythological movies and their bhajans and religious songs. On this death anniversary, I found a song, a Rafi solo with a difference. It is nothing like a bhajan or a mythological situation song, but appears to be roadside tamasha category song.

This is a fun song from the film Aadhi roti (1957). This movie has actors like Prem Adeeb, Master Bhagwan, Sulochana Latkar, Daisy Irani and Manorama. The songs are composed by Avinash Vyas and written by (unrelated) Bharat Vyas. As per the Rafi excel sheet, this song is performed on screen by Master Bhagwan. It figures as it does sound like a Bhagwan Dada song.

Three songs from the film are posted as below :
teri duniya mein aa kar bhi
so jaa re so jaa mere laal
main gori gori gori gori chhori

Actually the lullaby song “so ja re so jaa mere laal” is a multiple version song, with one more sad solo by GeetaDutt and a sad version by Rafi Sahab. I am glad that I visited the songs of this movie today. The sad version is something else and I don’t want to stop listening to it. Reminds me of another multiple version sad, lullaby song where Rafi Sahab scores a unbeaten ton in cricketing parlance: aaj kal mein dhal gaya. Composing a song, bringing it to the best possible shape and rehearsing it, till you get the perfect rendition with true expression must be as much hard work as it takes to complete a century in the test match. But then “Beti Bete” was in 1964, with Shankar-Jaikishan being so busy that they were canning more than one song in a day, as per some reports. So here Rafi Sahab and also other singers had to deliver the right take much quickly and had not much opportunity to be pedantic.

Excel sheet is also listing many Rafi songs composed by Avinash Vyas for Gujrati films. I would have attempted to post a gujrati song, especially the ‘Garba” songs like ‘mehnditevaavi’. But I hesitated, due to my half knowledge of the language. A Marathi song should be a safer bet to add in this series.

Avinash Vyas may not be one of the greats of the golden era of hindi film songs. This is a 1957 song, just about the right time when the composers had finally digested that a phenomena like Rafi Sahab exists. S. D.Burman was in his peak with films like “Pyaasa”, “paying Guest” etc., O. P. Nayyar was also getting into his groove and played a masterstroke with “Naya Daur”. Madan Mohan was still getting there with “Gateway of India”. But I feel strongly, that a couple of songs from this film “Aadhi Roti”, especially the lori song is a quality creation, deserves to hold its head high. This “lori” Rafi version has overshadowed the song I am posting here, as I heard it just now, after the present song and prepared the lyrics.

But I liked this song a lot too, for its peppy and mischievous spirit and Rafi sahab’s expertise and perfect delivery and timing in singing it. Another song, where it feels as if, more than one person is singing it, when actually only Rafi Sahab’s voice is there and no chorus to accompany. And plus also the fact that he seems to have so much time to sing not just the words, but accompany them with a lot of his typical ‘murkiyan’. All of this is done within the blink of an eye. Well, almost.

Any wonder that I wish, I was a butterfly on the wall, when all these recordings were happening in the recording studios.

This Rafi solo is presented, as a tribute to Avinash Vyas on his remembrance day.

“Baabul Ki Galiyaan”(1972) was directed by Satya Dev Narang for Narang Films Combines, Bombay. This “social” movie had Hema Malini, Sanjay Khan, Sonia Sahni, Jagdeep, Shatrughan Sinha, David, Asit Sen, Manmohan Krishna, Bipin Gupta, Jayshree T, Savita, Brahmchaari, Kuljeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Satyen Kappu, Tuntun, Hiralal, S N Bannerji, Bharm Bhardwaj, C S Dubey, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Birbal, Majnu, Abhimanyu Sharma, Pal Sharma, Tiwari, Ramesh Kumar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song (the most popular song from the movie) has already been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song appears 3904 days after the first song appeared in the blog on 3 november 2008.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a nagin dance song on Hema Malini. So Mushfiqur Rahim, the Bangladeshi wicketkeeper batsman has another Naagin dance song for his reference and necessary action. 🙂

The picturisation shows a snake charmer playing been and making a snake to sway (what people mistakenly believe to be snake dance), with Sanjay Khan looking on. I thought that the sapera is Bhagwan, but the star cast does not mention his name. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify him.


Song-Bairi chhod de mera raasta (Baabul Ki Galiyaan)(1972) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de
bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de

thhar thhar kaanpe naazuk tan mora
it ut doley bebas mann mora
thhar thhar kaape naazuk tan mora
it ut doley bebas mann mora
main to chali thhi pi ki nagariya
rok li toone kaahe dagariya
jaane de
ab jaane de
bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de

bedardi kyun peechhe pada hai mere
laaj ke maare painyaan padoon main tere
bedardi kyun peechhe pada hai mere
laaj ke maare painyaan padoon main tere
der bhayi to sang saheli
daal na den koi jhhoothi paheli
ab jaane de
ab jaane de
bairi chhod de mera raasta
tujhe baali umar ka vaasta
ab jaane de
ab jaane de

Blog Day : 3893 Post No. : 14929

This article touches upon “blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)” but this article is not part of that series. It is not possible to post an article in this series Today (16 march 2019), because movies of all the songs (all six of them) that were covered ten years ago (on 16 march 2009) have already been YIPPEED by now. 🙂

This blog ten year challenge (2009-2019) was started to serve some purpose, though we were not fully clear about them.

Let me try and enumerate them one by one.

Revisit movies that have not been revisited for years
————————————————————————-
Songs and movies that we covered ten years ago and then forgot about those movies once again get our attention. Take “Sharaabi”(1984) for instance. It was as a result of this series that we realised that this movie, despite being introduced in the blog as far back as in 2009 had only three songs in the blog and that no songs from this movie were covered in the blog since 2012 !

The case of “Do Dishaayen”(1982) was specially remarkable. The movie had three songs in it. Two of these songs were covered on consecutive days on 2 and 3 february 2009 and then we forgot all about this movie. Thanks to this series, the third and final song from the movie got covered ten years after its debut in the blog and the movie got YIPPEED on 3 february 2019.

Likewise, movies like “Gomti Ke Kinaare”(1972) etc got fresh lease of life in the blog as a result of this series.

A fillip to YIPPEE project
——————————————
As a result of this series, we found that a few movies whose songs got covered became YIPPEED as well. For instance, when we covered this song from “Sitaaron Se Aage”(1958), this had the added advantage of this movie getting YIPPEED as well.In other case, after we covered a song from a movie, we realised that the movie had one or two songs left and so that movie came under our radar for YIPPYdom.

Bringing back memories
———————————————-
For some regulars (especially those born in 1960s), this series brought back memories of the past.

A better appreciation of the past
————————————————–
The blog has evolved over a period of more than ten years. It has changed a lot. The way songs and movies were chosen in the past has undergone a change with time, though all these changes are mostly inadvertent and largely unplanned. Only some other observers can notice any patterns in the song posts of the blog one decade ago.

Mr Sadanand Kamath, our inhouse HFM researcher, who posted an article in the series carried out some indepth research on the way songs were covered ten years ago. He observed that

during July 19, 2008 to December 31, 2008, an overwhelming number of songs covered were of the films released in the 1960s and 70s with few songs from the 1950s and 1980s. However, the representation of songs from the films released in the 1930s and 40s were negligible. For instance, out of 475 songs covered during the period under reference, only 5 songs pertained to the films released in the 1940s – that too the late 1940s. Not a single songs of films released in the 1930s were covered during the period under reference.

These trends were, however, on the expected lines for two reasons. First, Atul ji, considering his age profile at the time of starting of the Blog, has virtually grown up in the midst of popular songs of the films of 1960s and 70s. Obviously, as a ‘start-up venture’ of his Blog, he would have been influenced by such songs. Secondly, and most importantly, even if he intended to cover the songs of the 1930s and 40s, I doubt whether these songs were available in good numbers on the video sharing platforms in 2008. Youtube was set up in 2005 as a video sharing platform. A random browsing of videos on YT gives me an impression that videos of Hindi film songs were uploaded in good numbers only from 2007 onward and the videos of old film songs (1930s and 40s) were getting uploaded mainly from 2009 onward.

The song under discussion is not a “ten year challenge” song, but this song appears here today as a result of this exercise. Another song from this movie “Raja Jani”(1972) was part of the “ten year challenge” post on 5 march 2019. That post triggered all kinds of nostalgic feelings among regulars. This movie “Raja Jani”(1972) had made its debut on the 22nd day of the blog on 9 august 2008 and it was the 22nd post in the blog. By the time the second post from this movie appeared on 5 april 2009, the blog was more than one thousand songs old. The third song from the movie came after a gap of 5800 songs in 4 november 2012. After that there was a big gap of over six years during which this movie was all but forgotten.

It was on 5 march 2019 that the fourth song from “Raja Jani”(1972) was covered as a part of “blog ten year challenge”. It was then that we realised that the movie was another two songs short of being YIPPEED.

One of these two missing songs has subsequently been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been covered so far:-

Mr Pratap, senior to most of us had watched this movie when it was released. Here is what he has to say about this movie:

I saw the movie when it was released and remember that I enjoyed it mainly due to the songs.

As far as I recall, the story was a standard formula one, Hema Malini is a lost princess, raised by Nadira and earns her living through dances and acrobatics. Dharmendra is the lovable rogue who notices the similarity of Hema with the description of the lost princess in the posters/newspaper ads and thinks up a scheme of passing her off as the princess and get the promised reward. Durga Khote is the grandmother Rajmata who is literally dying for the lost girl. She gladly accepts Hema and soon announces her engagement to the evil Prime Minister Premnath’s still more evil son Prem Chopra. Hema is heartbroken when she learns that Darmendra was using her as a pawn to get the reward and she accepts. Not very original, so you know the rest of the story.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Raja Jani”(1972) to appear in the blog. The song is chronologically the first song of the movie. It is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

One can watch the picturisation and guess what is going on, in the light of the movie synopsis provided earlier.

In this blog, we first cover a song and then regulars post comment about that song. The song is “special” because this song has received comments about it even before it has been posted. These comments were posted in the penultimate song post of course. For instance, Peevesie’s mom commented that

A song that I love, specially “shanno naam uska” line.
I used to substitute shanno with my name. 😉

With this song, all the songs of “Raja Jani” (1972) have been covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPIED in the blog.

Song-Duniya ka mela mele mein ladki (Raja Jaani)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska
duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska
gaal uske gulaabi
chaal uski sharaabi
o baabu o laala sabko salaam uska
duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska

tauba o meri tauba
karte hain sab ishaare
tauba o meri tauba
kiski taraf vo dekhe
aashiq hai uske saare
kiski taraf vo dekhe
o o o
sabki aankho me baske
sabko dekhe vo has ke
sabka dil bahlaana jo thahra kaam uska
duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska

kahte hain log uski
jaadu bhari hai baaten
kahte hain log uski
aankhon mein har kisi ki
katne lagi hai raaten
aankhon mein har kisi ki
o o o
neend uski udaaye
chain uska churaye
aaj kal shahar mein hai charcha aam uska
duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska

dekho to ek tamaasha
ye khoob ban gaya hai
dekho to ek tamaasha
har ek us haseen ka
mahboob ban gaya hai
har ek us haseen ka
o o o
koi aankhen bichaaye
naaz koi uthaaye
jaise har ik deewaana hai
ghulaam uska
duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska
gaal uske gulaabi
chaal uski sharaabi
o baabu o laala sabko salaam uska
duniya ka mela
mele mein ladki
ladki akeli shanno naam uska
