As I have said in one of my recent posts, whenever I read something inspiring, be it a poem or an article, it inspires me to write something of my own thoughts. Nowadays there is less and less readable material forthcoming from the print media. The blog and its posts are sometimes savior’s for the intellect. One such article was the post by Sudhir Sir – “Gandhi Tere Desh Mein Ye Kaisa Atyachaar“, on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.  It appeared quite late in the night, but as I read it completely, it was a thoroughly readable and thought provoking post. At least I found it thought provoking and for the next few days the matters and the quotes from the Mahatma’s books, and my own thought relating to them were reverberating in my mind. I wrote a lengthy comment on the post which I am reproducing here.

Sir,

Congratulations on writing such an extensive, studied article on Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophies. Reading it, I realised I haven’t read any of his books.  Being a Kitaabi keeda from childhood hasn’t helped me reach out to any of Mahatma’s books. Where ever I have found a bookshelf and a rack of books I tend to go through the titles and authors. In my defence, I can only say that non-fiction is not my strong case. Nevertheless, it is sad and tragic that the works of such great thinking minds are nowhere to be found in present day libraries.

The para’s you quote from his writings, about non-violence and cowardice; I dare say are the sort of philosophy which is popular as well as non-popular, depending on disparities in viewpoints.

I will quote an incident to explain what I mean. This happened in friends household. The son was playing football with his friends. A few other boys from the neighborhood, came up to one of the boy and started beating him over some fight or rivalry. All the friends including my friend’s son ran away from there. The boy came home and told the parents about this. This was just a school going kid. The father said, how can you do this, being a punjab da puttar, how could you not help your friend. The son said, if tried to help him than they will start hitting me too. Logic here, self-preservation not cowardice, the mother opined.

In the light of the above incident, the Mahatma’s point is first one will try to stop the violence by non-violence. But avoiding the situation altogether is not non- violence, but cowardice.  As opposed to valour.  The will to defend the one in difficult situation. Not just defend, but save. This is valour, opposite of cowardice.

But this is an era of “tamashbeen”.  A vast majority of public now prefers to just be a bystander and watch, rather than doing anything to stop the violence. Which neither here, nor there. This is a side kick of mass media. We are used to watching violence and it doesn’t make us flinch. A humans natural tendency to reject violence is gone. We watch it like it is a natural movie watching experience.

I believe, big cities are little better, with regards to violence of any kind. For the disruption is bigger and inconvenient. Crowd will be of various dispositions in any urban setting, someone will be a local and saner than others. Hopefully.

One more point, I would make here is about the “decay” of creation. The decay in creation is caused by impurities. The very nature of creation in mortal. What has started will end, whatever has lived will die. A natural death. Like some civilisation of the past died, due to natural calamities and became a step for newer civilisation to develop.

It is the truth which is pure. The lies added to it make it impure, and cause decadence. The civilisations that decay and then die of decadence,  rot. No new civilisation can emerge from such decayed rot.

So, we as humans, the superior among all creation, have a duty to preserve this purity in ourselves.

Regards.

I realize that the comment is just one dimensional, and could not carry the total sum of my impressions on the article.   I have said that non-fiction is not my strong case, and here I am, daily trying my hand at writing non-fiction  :).

Now I simply must quote this from the article :

It goes to establish that Gandhi was no ordinary soul, and such souls appear on this planet quite rarely. Albert Einstein has so beautifully summed it up in his tribute – “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”.

Of course I have read this quote before and this is not fiction. Another important thing he highlighted was about the discourse around ‘the relevance of the Mahatma today’.  And films like “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” were just a final stone dropped in the (already dry) pond, through the popular film media, to explain to the second generation Indians born after the end of the Gandhian era, that over dose of Gandhian philosophy like any other philosophy is also capable of creating a ‘chemical locha’ in the mental equilibrium.

May be the decay of this great civilization of homo-sapiens has started. The very nature of creation is temporary; all that exists will be destroyed one day.  The Universe may be infinite, but the only definite thing here is death. So be it, whether it is the death of a philosophy, a society or a world. The very wisdom of this species is in danger of being homogenized with its earlier extinct versions.

If one really gives deep thought about the situation the human race is facing, it feels as if the ‘Qayamat’ is truly underway.  The life we are living is like a tight rope walk of ‘pul-e-siraat‘.  One wrong step and below is hellfire. It’s that difficult to keep to the truth, obey the truth and keep faith in the truth.

But then there is a superior power, the creator, the sustainer and the nourisher of all that exists. As Allama Iqbal said :

mudda’ee laakh buraa chaahe to kya hota hai
wohi hota hai jo manzoor-e-khuda hotaa hai

So I have here a very positive kind of feel good song written by Javed Akhtar from ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ (2001).  The singer is Srinivas and composers are Shankar-Ehsan-Loy.   Yeah, the name of composers has a message in it.  I can try and translate the middle one i.e. ‘Ehsan’.

We all are familiar with word  ‘ehsaan‘ in songs like “Ehsaan Mere Dil Pe Tumhaara Hai Dosto” and “Ehsaan Tera Hoga Mujh Par“. The word ‘ehsan’ is a related word, with a change in meaning.  It means the ‘beauty of good conduct’. Or rather the beauty of best behavior.

The song I am presenting has a dream like quality with Dimple in white, Akshaye Kumar in white, and a white canvas.  The portrait of Dimple gradually develops on the canvas, while the Akshaye is dreaming on of pure water streams, dipping his hand into the stream,  full moon, in a dreamy halo of light and roshni.   In this moon light, all the colours are amalgamated to make a portrait, in which the fragrances are visibly mingling. Moon, stream, clouds, song, rain and butterflies are all in favour – in favour of the flavor of love, that is created of such different matter.  Some physical and some metaphorical matter, to make the billions and trillions of DNA that comprise this universe.

Today, 4th October, is the 88th birthday of Sandhya Mukherjee. The grand old dame is one of the premier playback singers in Bangla cinema. In Hindi films, her contribution is limited to about 30 songs. Her involvement in Hindi films starts with the 1948 film ‘Jhoothi Kasmen’, and her singing assignments are spread over a decade and a half, till the mid 1960s.

A chance encounter with this song prompted the preparation of this post. I came across this song just a few hours ago, and listening to it was love at first hear. Such a lovely melody and arrangement, and such wonderful rendition, this song belongs to that category of unknown and hidden gems, which surprise the listener with their simplicity and beauty. I have listened to it many times since I discovered it earlier in the evening, and I do not seem to be getting enough of it.

The film is ‘Ratnadeep’ from 1952. The film is produced and directed by the legendary Debaki Kumar Bose, for the banner of Chitramaya, Calcutta. The cast of actors is listed as Anuva Gupta, Manju Dey, Molina Devi, Chhaya Devi, Tangamani, Harini, Bakul Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Pahadi Sanyal, Niteesh Mukherji, Tulsi Chakravarty, Kamal Mishra, Raj Kumar Soni, Sudheer  Chakraborty, Gokul Mukherji, and Gauri Shankar. The film is based on the Bangla novel of the same name, written by Prabhat Kumar Mukherjee.

Eight songs are listed for this film. The music director is Robin Chatterji. Two of the songs are traditional bhajans originally composed by Meerbai and Vidyapati. The remaining six songs have been written by the songwriters Pandit Madhur and Mahendra Pran. However, the lyricist for each individual song is not specifically identified.

We wish Sandhya ji a very happy 88th birthday. May she be blessed with many more years of good health and happiness.

Song – Raat Ne Aa Ke Din Ko Chooma, Saanjh Suhaani Aayi  (Ratnadeep) (1952) Singers – Sandhya Mukherji, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

raat ne aa ke
din ko chooma
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi
saanjh suhaani aayi
saanjh suhaani aayi manwa doley
raat ne aa ke
din ko chooma
saanjh suhaani aayi

chanda karey ishaare
koi mujhe pukaare
chanda karey ishaare
kya jaanun main aaj bhala kyon
mann hi mann sharmaai
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi

baalapan ke sapne jaage
jaagi mast jawaani
haaye jaagi mast jawaani
duniya ki har ?? suhaani
?? ban karv itraai
tum ban jaao main o saajan
aawo main tum ban jaaun
ye madmaati saanjh salona
ye madmaati saanjh salona
salona sandesa laai
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi

aankhon se tum dil mein aaye
phir bhi rahe kyon praaye
phir bhi rahe kyon praaye
itna to batla do kyon tum
aaj baney harjaai
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi

रात ने आ के
दिन को चूमा
साँझ सुहानी आई आई
साँझ सुहानी आई
साँझ सुहानी आई मनवा डोले
रात ने आ के

चंदा करे इशारे
कोई मुझे पुकारे

क्या जानूँ मैं आज भला क्यों
मन ही मन शरमाई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई

बालपन के सपने जागे
जागी मस्त जवानी
हाए जागी मस्त जवानी
दुनिया की हर ?? सुहानी

तुम बन जाओ मैं ओ साजन
आवो मैं तुम बन जाऊँ
ये मदमाती साँझ सलोना
ये मदमाती साँझ सलोना
सलोना सँदेसा लाई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई

आँखों से तुम दिल में आए
फिर भी रहे क्यों पराये
फिर भी रहे क्यों पराये
इतना तो बतला दो क्यों तुम
आज बने हरजाई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई

4092 Post No. : 15236

I have been meaning to write a post on Majrooh Sultanpuri for some months now to commemorate the 100th birth Anniversary of a poet and film song writer par excellence.   But as usual one puts somethings on back burner and postpones things for some other time.

Last week I started the lyrics of this song from ‘Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak’ (1988), incidentally on my iPad and saved the file in yahoo mail. But that file is not opening in the any of the computers, so this post again didn’t even start.  Today is 1st October, 2019.  A very nice post by Sadanad Kamath Sir has appeared in the blog, which is quiet inspiring and it gave fresh ammunition to my jaded thoughts to start this write up.

Majrooh Saab’s super success with all music director, big and small, prolific and selective, is not comparable to anyone else.   None of the major song writers in his era can boast a list of composers as comprehensive as him, and more importantly successful, famous and hit songs.  Be it Madan Mohan and SD Burman, Chitragupt and Laxmikant Pyarelal, or RD Burman, Roshan, Rajesh Roshan & Khaiyyam, least of all Naushad & OP Nayyar, C Ramchandra & Salil Chaudhary also. I don’t have to start listing the beautiful lyrical and profound songs, Majrooh Saab wrote with/for all these composers.

Among his contemporaries, Kaifi Azmi, Sahir Ludhianvi, Shailendra, Hasrat Jaipuri, Rajendra Krishnan, Shakeel Badayuni, Qamar Jalaalabadi, later on Indeevar, Anand Bakshi and Gulzar etc., most were aligned with a music director or a film production  group etc.  Music Directors also preferred to work with a single lyricist or a couple at a time.  Among the major composers only SD Burman seemed to have worked with all of the above listed lyricist, as well as Majrooh.

Sahir Ludhianvi was more prone to making tributes to other poets in his songs.  But Majrooh seems to have paid a ‘khiraj-e-aqeedat’ to his fellow progressive poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz in Madan Mohan’s “Chiraag’ song “Teri Aankhon Ke Siwa Duniya Mein Rakha Kya Hai”.  This line is part of the immortal Nazm by Faiz – “Mujh Se Pehli Si Mohabbat Mere Mehboob Na Maang“.

In recent times, I have found that reading good work by others inspires me to write my own thoughts.  This is truer about poetry.  When I listen to some poets work, it given wings to my thoughts too.  I feel like writing something not necessarily on similar lines, better or superior, but some verse, some tributary sentences.

One can only wonder how such great creative minds must have felt when they heard some inspiring work of other greats and felt like expanding on the theme.  In this instance Majrooh Saab has gone on another tangent –

teri aankhon ke siwaa duniya mein rakkha kya hai
ye utthen subha chale, ye jhuken sham dhaley
mera jeena mera marna inhi palkon ke taley

As a poet with a heart that was Majrooh, why won’t he say –

dil me rakh lena ise haathon se ye chhoote na kahin
geet naazuk hai mera sheeshe se bhi toote na kahin

In my earlier tribute post for Majrooh Saab I have stated that just the lyrical poetry in “Rahen Na Rahen Hum, Mehka Karenge” in ‘Mamta’ (1966) is enough to make his place in the ‘Hall of Fame’ of Hindi film music.   Many colourful songs for Nasir Hussain’s films are written by Majrooh Saab for OP Nayyar and RD Burman.

The new age songs written by Majrooh for the film ‘Khaamoshi’ (1996) are among my favourites.  This time I have chosen a song from the 1988 film ‘Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak’ produced by Nasir Hussain and directed by his son Mansoor Khan for launching of Tahir Hussain’s son Aamir Khan. Incidentally dialogues, story and screenplay all are credit to Nasir Hussain.  The song starts with prelude music of clocks going “tick tock tick tock” in a departmental store, where Juhi Chawla has come to shop with her parents, Dalip Tahil and Beena.  She accidentally runs into Aamir Khan, who has promised his parent that he will not meet and talk to Juni Chawla for 6 month (?) or so. Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla belong to two Rajput families who are at logger heads with each other over past broken alliances among the families due to which Dalip Tahil’s sister had committed suicide.

Juhi Chawla and Aamir Khan met during a picnic trip to Mount Abu and fell in love without knowing that their families are having this rivalry.  Due to this, the love story is actually doomed to end in tragedy, but at the time of this song the lovebirds are unaware of this and are happily waiting for the wait period to get over. The singers are Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, and the music is by Anand-Milind. The songwriter is one and only Majrooh Sultanpuri.   If I remember correctly, this was the film which started the trend of abbreviating the name of film as QSQT.

A song of hope and happy endings. A song with birthday parties, picnic on cycles and dreamy dates and marking days in the calendar till happy days are here again.

Song – Ae Mere Humsafar, Ek Zara Intezaar (Qayaamat Se Qayaamat Tak) (1988) Singer – Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Anand Milind

Lyrics 

ae mere
humsafar
ek zara intezaar
sun sadaayen

manzil pyaar ki
ae mere
humsafar
ek zara intezaar
sun sadaayen
de rahi hai

ab hai judaai ka mausam

kyun na thamega toofaan
kaise na milegi
manzil pyaar ki

wahin se khula hai koi rasta
wahin se giri hai deewaar
pyaar ne jahaan pe rakkha hai
jhoom ke qadam ek baar
wahin se khula hai koi rasta
wahin se giri hai deewaar
roke kab ruki hai
manzil pyaar ki
ae mere
humsafar
ek zara intezaar
sun sadaayen
de rahi hai
manzil pyaar ki

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 47
——————————————————————————————

When one discussed a movie of 1940s, one often assums by default that it must be a “boring” movie, one which may not hold the interest of later generation movie goers. And when one finds that this movie has Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in lead roles, people who have seen them in character roles may consider dropping the idea of watching the movie.

But what if I tell you that this movie from 1941 is a laugh riot ? And that this movie was the original inspiration of “Padosan”(1968) ? I am sure that people will suddenly get interested in knowing more about this movie.

“Jhoola”(1941) was directed by Gyan Mukherji for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. This movie, a “social” movie had Leela Chitnis, Ahok Kumar, Shah Nawaz, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Karuna Devi, Shahzadi, Rajkumari Shukla, Meenu Cooper, M A Aziz, Kaazi, Master Laxman, Leeladhar Sharma, Iqbal Bai, B M Dixit, Jyoti, Dulaari, Nana Palsikar etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. This movie has a song that goes Ek chatur naar karkar singaar . Yes, I mentioned that this movie is the original source for “Padosan”(1968) and this song is the inspiration of that famous “Padosan”(1968) Kishore Kumar Manna dey laugh riot.

If “Padosan”(1968) had Mehmood then “Jhoola”(1941) had his father Mumtaz Ali lip syncing the wonderful stage dance song Main to Dilli se dulhan laayaa re.

“Jhoola”(1941) had made its debut in the blog on 26 september 2009, viz exactly ten years ago, with the evergreen song Chali re chali re meri naao chali re .

This day that year ten years ago, the blog was at its usual prolific best. Six songs from six different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Five out of six of those movies have already been covered in the blog. “Jhoola”(1941) remains the only un YIPPEED movie from that day.

Here are the details of the songs that were discussed on 26 september 2009:

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tera mujhse hai pahle ka naata koi Aa Gale Lag Jaa-1973 All Songs covered in the blog
Har aas ashqbaar hai Kinaare Kinaare-1963 All Songs covered in the blog
Dekha naa jaaye socha naa jaaye Mr India-1961 All Songs covered in the blog
Kahaan chhod ke chalaa hai tu Anjaan-1956 All Songs covered in the blog
De bhi chuke ham dil nazraana dil kaa Jaal-1952 All Songs covered in the blog
Chali re chali meri naao chali re Jhoola-1941 05 of 11 songs covered

According to HFGK, the movie had 12 songs. I find that the song Ek chatur naar karkar singaar does not find mention if HFGK. To compensate for that, the song under discussion today gets mentionc twice (as song number 6 and 11). So the count of songs in the movie remains accurate, viz 12.

Today, as part of Blog ten year challenge, here is another song from “Jhoola”(1941). Like the song that was covered ten years ago, this song too is a duet sung by Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis. In the song ten years ago, the leading duo were riding a boat, here they ride a ghodagaadi, and while doing so, Ashok Kumar makes gentle 1940s style passes on Leela Chitnis, asking the love letter back. Leela Chitnis teases him back 1940s style responds 1940s style viz.

Dekho kah doongi
Haan haan dekho kah doongi
Tumhaare man ki batiyaan

and subsequently

Hamri gali mein dekho
Tum kal se aana chhodo
Varna hansengi hamaari sakhiyaan

The lyrics by Kavi Pradeep are quite cute and romantic. The romantic song, in which both make paasses at each other must have been quite a rage in those pre independence days.

Music is composed by Saraswati Devi.

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

Aao basaa len dil ki duniya

Blog Day :

4023 Post No. : 15136

[Ed Note: With sincere apologies to the author and the readers. This write up was delivered to the editors much in advance of the blog anniversary date. It is our oversight that we missed posting it on 19th July. The lapse is regretted.]

As the blog turns 11 today, we can celebrate the first step in the double digit age milestone.  Numerilogically, 11 means 1+1=2 . Does this mean second stage of second phase ?  Or 11 simply means gyarah number ki bus.  Mumbaikar’s know that gyarah number bus means ‘to walk on two feet’.  Walking walking we have reached the 15000 plus figuratively.

So. . . its “Chalte Chalte Mere Ye Geet Yaad Rrakhna. . .  Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. . . Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. . .

Flashback related to this song. . .  My first day in college :

Coming from a girls only Urdu medium school, trepidation crowding the mind, how will I fit in and all that.  Admission was done, fees paid whether I wanted to study Commerce or not, it was a done deal.  Backtracking from a path already taken was a no no… in the family.   It was a good reputed college of Mumbai, my elder sister was happy that at least I got a good college bit more away from the usual Urdu medium crowd, than she had managed.  She had changed streams from Science (which she was very keen to do) to Commerce, at the last moment, just to avoid going to a college (not so good) which was very close to home and right next to the school.

Nobody in the family expected me to do well in Xth as my math was very week.  In the surprised euphoria of me doing well in SSC, the decision was taken to try for the good college, a little away from the residence, involving commute by bus. My elder sister had a big hand in convincing the parents. So no 11 number ki bus for me, rather real BEST buses.

I remember the day of my admission. Two days after the SSC results my father took my elder sister and me to the college. After the procedure was completed, while going back home, my sister had a brain wave of watching a movie, to celebrate my admission to the college and also my 15th birthday. I have said in an earlier post that my elder sister has a great sense of occasion.  My father dropped us to the theatre, waited to get the tickets and left for his office.  The movie was ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’ (1984) with Anita Raj and Raja Bundela.

So, first day of college @ 12 noon, the class started to fill up.  Some of us girls found each other, sat in a row separate from the boys.   Actually now what is known as a column, was a row in the class room. First period happened to be of English.

The lady lecturer asked all of us to introduce ourselves and talk about interests hobbies etc.  One of the boys said he like to sing and the lecturer having found a ‘bakra’ was no going to let go. So the boy ‘marta kya na karta’ sang this song in the class:

Chalte Chalte Mere Ye Geet Yaad Rrakhna. . .  Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. . .

The song as it is, is unforgettable, and with it this event of my first day of college is attached. Our college consisted of a motley crowd of upper, middle and lower crusts’s girls and boys.  It had an ‘Urdu society’ with a Parsi Professor heading it and having its own notice board.  Yes, the notice board was a great source of prestige during those times 🙂 .

The present song post is an almost sufiana song, a critically acclaimed song from the 2006 film ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’.  Very unusual situation for a spectacular song, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.  There are three singers namely Shankar Mahadevan, Carlisa Monterio & Shafqat Amaanat Ali.  Javed Akhtar is one of the lyricists. There is a Wikipedia page dedicated to this song.  (I Wonder – do all songs have a page like this? )   Carlisa Monterio is the female singer who has penned the lines “Love Will Find A Way” as per the page on Wikipedia. I call this song almost sufiana, because it gives that feeling when one listens to the audio only.

It is picturized on Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukherjee, who are married to Priety Zinta and Abhishek Bachchan respectively. The two are also seen planning their respective wedding anniversary celebration, while meeting up from time to time at spectacular locations in Philadalphia, USA. They are both unhappy with their spouses and are still trying to continue in those marriages. Movie characters are rather fickle, not usually seen to be serious about their commitments. No doubt that divorce is sometimes the only way out of an abusive / real bad marriage.  What is real bad and little bad, sort of can be worked at, is again relative. It is commendable that some civilized societies decided to reform and allow divorce as a permitted practice during 20th century. It was hailed as a step towards better rights for women.

Marriages and divorces in films are no mirror for realities. From what I have observed of bad marriages, one partner may be a major cause of discontent, but both partners suffer. Being the chief cause in a bad marriage doesn’t in anyway alleviate the personal sufferings. Parting ways in civilized manner should be a choice, but only if there is no way of reconciliation.

Also, because marriages are made in heaven, as human beings and social animals, we have a duty to safeguard this institution.  Husband and wife’s is the primary relationship on which family is based and develops as a unit, it is the root of the family tree.

So this is a celebratory song for the 11th anniversary of the blog, and song no. 2 of the Mitwa trilogy.  Ideally this would have been the 3rd and final song of the trilogy, but since the Anniversary is here, this song is the one I choose to post.

Happy anniversary to all my fellow travelers on the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

July the 3rd is the date when the son of a favorite singer of mine, who is equally my favourite turns a year younger. It is the 67th birthday of Amit Kumar Ganguly. The all-rounder musician – he is a playback singer and music director in addition to being an actor and director.
He made his acting debut as an 11 or 12-year-old in “Door Gagan Ki Chaon Mein” (1964) and had his father singing for him “aa chal ke tujhe main leke chaloon ek aise gagan ke tale”. He played a mute kid whose eyes conveyed a lot of emotion. His eyes still convey a lot of emotion- we mostly see mischief there. 🙂 His next screen appearance was again with his father in a short role in “Door Ka Rahi” (1971). “Main ik panchchi matwala re” was a song that was recorded for the movie which was later edited out from the final cut of the movie and used inn a later Kishore Kumar production “Mamta Ki Chaon Mein”. Whatever acting he has done is mostly in movies produced by his father. He has acted in about six movies and took on the mantle of director to complete his fathers’ “Mamta ki Chaon Mein” which released in 1989; two years after his father, the legendary Kishore Kumar, passed away.

I have seen a video on youtube where Amit Kumar mentions how his proud father Kishore Kumar presented him on stage as part of a “Kishore Kumar Nite” in the 70s. He has related how the father-son duo had planned on his entry on to the stage and so many other anecdotes are there in that video.

I made some mental notes after seeing that video. Today’s song is selected from those notes- the first song that I discovered in that video has been shared on the blog by Sudhirji – a Madan Mohan marvel “hai shaam badi matwali” from the 1980 release “Chaalbaaz” which was one of the first few songs that he sang outside of his father’s production.

The very first time that he sang for someone other than his father was for the music director duo Sapan- Jagmohan. (I know that either our in-house encyclopedia or Sudhirji have written a brief introduction to this lesser known music director jodi). The movie was “Darwaza” by the Ramsay Brother’s production house.

The movie had a cast of Anju Mahendru, Shyamlee, Anil Dhawan, Imtiaz Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Sheetal, etc etc. The movie had Naqsh Lyallpuri as the lyricist. It movie had around three songs all of them solos -two by Asha Bhonsle and one was by Amit Kumar. “Darwaza” released in 1978, was reasonably popular. I remember we were not allowed to see the movie as it was given an “Adults Only” certificate by the censor board, it was supposed to be a horror movie. I have not yet seen it, 🙂

So here we are wishing our dear Amit Kumar a very happy birthday (belated) with a song which, though not as popular as his “bade achche lagte hain” or other songs of his under R D Burman’s baton, is very soothing to the ears.


Song-Hosh mein ham kahaan (Darwaaza)(1978) singer-Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

hosh mein
hum kahaan
mil gaye ae
do dil jawaan
ye samaa
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na aa
hosh mein
hum kahaan
arre mil gaye
do dil jawaan
ye samaa
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na aa
hosh mein
hum kahaan
arre mil gaye
do dil jawaan

ho o o
ik aag si jaagi mere jazbaat mein
kaise ghata pyaasi rahe barsaat mein
o o
ik aag si jaagi mere jazbaat mein
kaise ghata pyaasi rahe barsaat mein
arre ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan

ho o o
mehke labon ki taazgi de do mujhe
pal bhar mere dil ki khushi de do mujhe
o o o
mehke labon ki taazgi de do mujhe
pal bhar mere dil ki khushi de do mujhe
ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan
ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan
hosh mein
hmm hmm
arre mil gaye

“Dheere Dheere“ –

Dheere Dheere Machal Ae Dil-e-Beqaraar

Dheere Dheere Chal Chaand Gagan Mein

Dheere Se Jaana Bagiyan Mein O Bhanwra

Dheere Se Aa Ja Ri Ankhiyan Mein Nindiyaa Aa Ja Ri Aa Ja

Dheere Dheere Bol Koi Sun Na Le

Dheere Chal Dheere Chal O Bheegi Hawa

O More Sainya Ji Utrenge Paar Re Nadiyaa Dheere  Baho

Pal Pal O Pal Samay Tu Dheere Dheere Chal

Then there are songs have the word in different context, like;

O Gaadi Waale Gaadi Dheere Haank Re

Man Re Tu Kaahe Na Dheer Dharay

And this category of songs cannot be thought of without the superbly melodious “Dheeme Dheeme Gaaun, Dheere Dheere  Gaaun”.

All the above songs are already posted in the blog.  I had actually planned to do a series on ‘dheere dheere’ songs.  I also have plans for a few more such word based theme posts.   But for all these themes I am finding only newer songs.  So the series idea is dropped, will just be preparing random posts for which ever song appeals.

Here I am presenting a song which suits the theme to the ‘T’. Its from the movie ‘Aashiqui’ (1990) which is making its debut here. More than 29 years ago this movie came and the music created a storm. I personally am witness to the rage these songs were. In recent days I have been listening to the songs of this film and I am having to revise my choice of best song in the movie. This song ‘Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana” used to by my favourite and I thought this was the best. But the other songs like the title song “Saanson Ki aroorat Hai Jaise”, “Jaan-e-Jigar Jaan-e-Mann”, “Main Duniya Bhulaa Doonga”,  “Nazar Ke Saamne Jigar Ke Ppaas”, “Ab Tere Bin Jee Lenge Hum”, “Tu Meri Zindagi Hai “, “Dil Ka Aalam Ab Kya Sunaaun Tumhen” etc.  Total 9 songs all are chartbusters. At the time this movie came and songs were so popular, it was a known fact that the songs were all from the Music Bank created by T-series (Gulshan Kumar). I think Mahesh Bhatt may have got to select the songs he wanted for his film. That is the only explanation for such high quality melodious songs in one film, when films used to succeed on only one or two good songs. Such was the condition of film music, despite the ghazal already having made a big comeback in Hindi film music. All songs in a film couldn’t be ghazal recitiations like in ‘Umrao Jaan’, so the film makers were making use of the urdu ghazal selectively.

There was at least one song in the above mentioned list which is a direct lift from an existing older song.

The music of the film was by Nadeem-Shrawan, and the singers were Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal. The lyrics are by Rani Malik for this song. The film had newcomers Anu Agarwal and Rahul Roy for hero and heroine, with support cast of Deepak Tijori as the friend, Reema Laagu as the mother, Tom Alter as the warden, among others.

Here is an excerpt of a review on imdb.com :

“Each and every song of this movie is timeless. Nadeem-Shravan may not be creative and experimental like A. R. Rehman, but it is true that if “melody” had a second name it would be Nadeem-Shravan. “Aashiqui”, “Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin”,”Sadak”, “Saajan”, “Deewana”, “Dil Ka Kya Qusoor”, “Salami”, “Damini”, “Dil Waale”, “Raja Hindustani”, “Jeet”, “Pardes” are examples of this genius combination. Mahesh Bhatt is one of the finest filmmakers we had, but it is sad that his biggest commercial success is probably his weakest work as a director, or probably got overshadowed by the lovable music.”

I can’t agree more with the above para. I don’t know the songs of ‘Dil Waale’ and ‘Jeet’ of the above listed films, but can add ‘Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’ and ‘Dhadkan’ which came much later, to this list. ‘Pardes’ would be the highest point or the culmination of this phenomena called Nadeem-Shrawan.

The music of this film did make a clean sweep of the Filmfare Awards of 1991

Best Music Director : Nadeem Saifi – Shravan Rathod

Best Lyricist : Sameer (For the song “Nazar Ke Saamne”)

Best Playback Singer – Male :
Kumar Sanu  (For the song “Ab Tere Bin”)

Best Playback Singer – Female :
Anuradha Paudwal  (For the song “Nazar Ke Saamne”)

This is the tally of these artists in the blog so far,

Nadeem Shrawan 15
Anuradha Paudwal 35
Kumar Sanu 22
Sameer 30

No wonder that the songs of ‘Aashiqui’ have been rehashed multiple times and reused a couple of times for ‘Aashiqui’ – 2 & 3.  I have come across very very high praise for Nadeem-Shrawan, some go to the extent of calling them SD Burman-ish.  Output wise I am inclined to agree that they were able to maintain a particular standard, which was a difficult task, given the market and commercial requirements.   As for being SDB-ish, I have found a song or two by them to be in the SDB mode.

Anyway, the songs of this movie are on their way to becoming sort of folklore/folk songs in the next century 🙂 🙂 , at the current rate and trends.

Song – Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana (Aashiqui) (1990) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics – Rani Malik, MD – Nadeem Shravan

Lyrics

dheere dheere se
meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se
dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna jaane jaana

dheere dheere se

dheere dheere se
dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna
jaane jaana
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana

jab se tujhe dekha
dil ko kahin aaraam nahin
mere hothon pe ek tere siwa
koi naam nahin
apna bhi haal tumhaare jaisa
hai saajan
bas yaad tujhe karte hain
aur koyi kaam nahin
ban gayaa hoon main
teraa deewaana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaana
oo dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa

tu ne bhi aksar mujh ko jagaaya
raaton mein
aur neend churaai
meethi meethi baaton mein
tu ne bhi beshaq
mujh ko kitna tadpaaya
phir bhi teri har ek adaa pe
pyaar aaya
aa jaa aa jaa ab kaisa sharmaanaa
dheere dheere se dil ko churaana
oo dheered heere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa
tum se pyaar hamen hai kitna jaane jaanaa aa
tum se mil kar tum ko hai bataana
dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
dheere dheere se dil ko churaanaa

धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना
ओह ….
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर

जब से तुझे देखा
दिल को कहीं आराम नहीं
मेरे होंठों पे एक तेरे सिवा
कोई नाम नहीं
अपना भी हाल तुम्हारे जैसा

बस याद तुझे करते हैं
और कोई काम नहीं
बन गया हूँ मैं
तेरा दीवाना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना

तू ने भी अक्सर मुझ को 
जगाया रातों में 
और नींद चुराई 
मीठी मीठी बातों में
तू ने भी बेशक
मुझ को कितना तड़पाया
फिर भी तेरी हर एक अदा पे
प्यार आया
आ जा आ जा अब कैसा
शरमाना
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना
तुम से प्यार हमें है
कितना जाने जानां
तुम से मिल कर
तुम को है बताना
धीरे धीरे से
मेरी ज़िंदगी में आना आ
धीरे धीरे से
दिल को चुराना

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is so heartening to see our beloved blog reaching yet another big milestone of 15000 songs being posted! Over a decade plus of hard work by all involved has made this possible but above all it has been Atul ji’s steadfast disciplined hard work which has led to it. I first of all congratulate him for this achievement. Your dedication, hard work and encouragement is always inspiring us. I have run out of hats to raise for all the wonderful work you have been doing here on this blog. May God always bless you and give you strength to achieve all your goals in your personal and official life.

I also wish to thank all the other contributors who have all become my friends during the journey of this blog. It has been a pleasure knowing you and Its always enjoyable meeting all of you. I think we should celebrate soon with a celebratory party Hangout (online or offline) with all of us meeting in spite of the time zone differences which separate us but love for music at the end of the day never fails to join us. Keep smiling always and be ever happy all of you!

For today’s song post I have chosen a song I was in love with when the movie released. This movie had some lovely songs under the baton of ace composers Jatin-Lalit and it makes its debut on the blog with this song. The movie was directed by a favourite director of mine, Kundan Shah whose film ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ (1983) is a delightful watch for all avid movie lovers even today years after its release (I shudder to hear talks of it being remade. Classics should be best left untouched. ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hai’ (1980) was touched just last week and all critics unanimously agree it was best left untouched). The movie’s name of course is ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ which was a 1994 release. Many big names and soon to be big names participated in this delightful movie whose main details are as given below:-

Movie: Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1994)
Director: Kundan Shah
Starcast: Shahrukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Deepak Tijori, Rita Bhaduri, Satish Shah, Anjan Srivastav, Goga Kapoor, Tiku Talsania, Ravi Baswani, Naseeruddin Shah, Juhi Chawla
Producer: Vikram Mehrohtra
Banner: Shemaroo Video Pvt Ltd
Release Date: February 25th 1994

This is how Wikipedia describes the movie:-

‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ (lit. Sometimes yes, Sometimes no) is a  1994 Indian Hindi romantic coming-of-age comedy film directed by Kundan Shah and starring Shah Rukh Khan, Suchitra Krishnamurthy, Deepak Tijori and Naseeruddin Shah. This is one of the rare mainstream Hindi movies in which the hero plays the role of a loser. It is widely considered to be one of Shah Rukh Khan’s best performances, and he has said that it is his favourite film. He received the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance for his role. Produced on a budget of ₹1.4 crore, the film grossed ₹5.5 crore, equivalent to ₹84 crore (US$12 million) adjusted for inflation. At the 39th Filmfare Awards, it won the Critics Award for Best Film and the Critics Award for Best Actor for Shah Rukh Khan, who also won the Best Actor award for ‘Baazigar’ (1993) at the same ceremony.

I still remember seeing this slice of life movie in a theatre. I was now old enough to go to a theatre by myself and I made the most of the period watching many of the good movies of the period. In spite of the movie being released during exam times, my parents permitted me to watch it and I enjoyed watching it. All the actors in the movie had done really good roles. Suchitra Krishnamurthy had made her acting debut with the movie. Many critics didn’t like her acting but I felt she tried her best giving a genuineness to the performance. She didn’t appear in much movies due to her personal life decisions but I have liked the few and far between movies she did. During the pop boom, she had done a handful of albums too whose cassettes I have enjoyed in those days. ‘Dole Dole’ was a particular favourite with me. Deepak Tijori who was the other lead also did a wonderful role. He was a competent actor and I feel its sad that we have not been able to see much of him for many years. He’s been more active in the field of direction though. As it is I love movies set in Goa and have thoroughly enjoyed movies set there.

Not many may be knowing that this movie was also remade in Telugu by the name Swapnalokam (1999) starring Jagapathi Babu.

Here is the plot of the movie:-

Sunil (Shah Rukh Khan) is woken up from his dream of marrying the girl he loves, Anna (Suchitra Krishnamurthy), by Sunil’s sister (Sadiya Siddiqui). Sunil is a happy-go-lucky scamp who loves music and is not interested in studies, which bothers his father, Vinayak (Anjan Srivastav). Sunil, Anna, and Chris (Deepak Tijori) are 3 members of a 6-person music band, who are looking to make it big. Anna rejoins the group after being away for a while, which makes Chris happy too, as he too loves Anna. After Anna reenters his life, Sunil begins to try and change his ways in order to get Anna to fall in love with him.

During a performance at a friend’s wedding, Sunil realizes that Anna and Chris have some chemistry between them. Sunil is devastated, so he decides to create a rift between Anna and Chris. Sunil eventually gets caught in his own web of lies. Anna, furious with Sunil for such a betrayal, slaps him and decides to never talk to Sunil ever after. Sunil is thrown out of the band for being a miscreant. However, as luck were to have it, fortune favours Sunil who saves the band from being heckled at a local club performance by putting on a stellar show, so the entire band forgives and forgets.

Meanwhile, Anna’s father has been giving thought to getting her settled in life and decides that Chris is worthy of the honour. He makes his intentions known to approach Chris’ parents with a proposal. However, Chris’ parents have other ideas and decide Chris’ marriage to their friend’s daughter. Anna and her family are dejected.

Sunil consoles Anna during this time and the tide slowly turns in his favour. Anna’s father, having realized that Sunil will love and take care of Anna, convinces Anna to marry Sunil. Sunil is overjoyed until he realizes Anna still loves Chris. Sunil decides to reunite the two and get them married. On the wedding day, as Chris and Anna are about to exchange rings, Chris’ ring slips out of his hand and rolls out of sight. Everybody starts searching for it. Sunil spots the ring but feigns ignorance, even as his younger sister gazes at him with a heavy heart. Eventually, Chris locates the ring and the couple gets married.

Just after the wedding, Sunil is shown sitting on the sidewalk, dejected and heartbroken. By happenstance, a random girl (Juhi Chawla in a guest appearance), who is lost and is seeking directions, approaches Sunil. Sometime later, Sunil and the girl are seen walking in the moonlight and talking merrily.

Anthony and Vasco, two criminals who are a part of the story, see Sunil with the new girl and break the fourth wall, saying that Sunil will be alright. The criminals hear the police siren and immediately scamper away as the credits roll.

If you’ve not watched the movie yet, do catch this feel good movie. It had some of the best performances and the late Renu Saluja had also edited it well. I heard sometime back that Shah Rukh Khan has bought the rights of the movie. Don’t know if he’s planning to remake it but its definitely one of his best and sincere performances. The movie was a sleeper hit and made more than double (nearly 5.5 crores) on the box office in those days.

The song’s lyrics have been very thoughtfully written by Majrooh Sultanpuri sahib and sung lovingly by the flavour of those days, Kumar Sanu. The combination of Majrooh Sahib with Jatin-Lalit was one of the top combinations for me in the 1990s. Just like the song, I pray that we never wake up from the suroor of good music we all live in all the time and keep singing songs of our love for music as well as each other.

Song – Ae Kaash Ke Ab Hosh Mein Hum Aane Na Paayen (Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa) (1994) Singer – Kumar Sanu, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Jatin Lalit

Lyrics

ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane naa paayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane naa paayen

khilti mehakti
yeh zulfon ki shaam
hanste khanakte
yeh hothhon ke jaam
khilti mehakti
yeh zulfon ki shaam
hanste khanakte
yeh hothon ke jaam
aa jhoom ke saaz uthhayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum hosh mein
ab aane na paayen

laa laa laall laa
laalla laa laa laa
laa laa laa laa la laall laa

ho bas agar tum hamaare sanam
hum to sitaaron pe rakh den kadam
ho bas agar tum hamaare sanam
hum to sitaaron pe rakh den kadam
saaraa jahaan bhool jaayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
bas naghme tere pyaar ke
gaate hi jaayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen
ae kaash ke hum
hosh mein ab aane na paayen

ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में

बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में
अब आने ना पायें
ए काश के हम होश में

खिलती महकती

खिलती महकती
ये ज़ुल्फों की शाम
हँसते खनकते

आ झूम के साज़ उठायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में

सारा जहाँ भूल जायें
बस नग़मे तेरे प्यार के
गाते ही जायें
ए काश के हम होश में

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this special occasion where we are now celebrating Fifteen thousand song-posts on the blog!!!  My heartiest congratulations to Atul ji, Sudhir ji and our respected senior and other team members on the blog and to all of our readers and well-wishers of this blog.

Well, my ‘love story’ (‘Prem Kahaani’, pehle ‘affair’ likhnewaala tha, phir ‘relationship’, phir thhik karke ‘love story’ likha  🙂 ) with this blog started around 2009 and it was because of Sahir Saab’s song ‘Dil Karta O Yaara Dildaara Mera Dil Karta’ (which I was looking because it was in my memory and nostalgic for me). So, thanks are very much due to Sahir Saab and I thank him for that. (I am sure he is accepting it there 🙂 )

My first comment was also on a song penned by Sahir Saab ‘Kashti Ka Khamosh Safar Hai’ – that was in 2009. Still, it took me three years more to become a contributor on this blog which happened in 2012.

How much I loved this blog and how HFM was my hobby earlier and became a passion later, and how HFM and this blog became an important part of my life thereafter, has been mentioned by me in few of my other posts on the blog. So, I will not go into more details on that. Rather I would like to write what I have not said earlier.

I came into writing when I was studying into eighth standard and my first article was published from a district newspaper from Akola then. It was an article about Chetan Chauhan when he was dropped from the playing side of India in test cricket. After that few more articles, all on cricket, were published in the same newspaper that time. Simultaneously after that I was approaching tenth standard and the board examinations, but still cricket was always on top in my mind. I did send few articles to the popular magazines in circulation then, but they were returned with some suggestions to me and that gave me a learning on how to plan and arrange the articles.

However, everything changed after I passed out matriculation and joined vocational subjects in eleventh instead of the subjects I liked most i.e. ‘Arts’. I have mentioned that journey on the blog in this article here. And during these two years I was more on movies and cricket and so as expected I failed in the examination. After that I joined a construction company and start working there and continued to working after that.

Now between all these years i.e. 1985 to 2009 I was working and continuing with my hobby of collecting cassettes, watching movies, listening music. And that was the biggest recreation and motivation for me during all those years. It so happened in 2009 that my close friends working in the same company with me in Kachchh but in different units/departments, push me to take up writing and that is how I started my blog and after that my younger daughter who used to write regularly became a part of that blog.

So finally the circle came to round and life brought me back to my passion of writing after a gap of almost twenty-seven years. And when I came into contact with this blog and started sending my contribution for lyrics earlier in 2012 I thought to give a try for writing articles and my first article appeared on the blog in 2013.

When I became a lyric contributor to the blog, that was my ‘new birth’ and at that point, life started again for me with new purpose, new energy, inspiration and motivation. And all these factors – purpose, energy, inspiration, motivation, celebration, and nostalgia keep growing further as my journey with the blog has been continued and still going …

Many childhood memories of watching movies, of songs from movies of yesteryears, keep surfacing and it was like one memory triggering other memory and bringing close to its related vague memories of those beautiful years. I started getting connected to many incidences which were lying dormant in my memory or which I had forgotten. And, I must say that since coming into the contact with the blog and specially after having HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) when I started sharing song posts of songs with the seventies, I had been transformed to that era only when my age was growing between eight to fifteen years.

In my circles whenever someone asks my age, I always used to tell them that ‘I am only seventeen years old and do not to grow more than that’. But the blog has reduced my age between eight-fifteen and I keep shuffling in that ‘age-era’ only i.e. if I considered up to 1983. And if I considered up to 1980 then my age is twelve years only.

I think I have also mentioned this earlier that finding this blog and being a part of this was a feeling like ‘this was the destination of my life’ and ‘all these years of life I was alive for this purpose only’. Always feeling fortunate and blessed to be a part of this journey and a member of this team …

Meeting some of the team members and seniors in the group during the ‘gang-outs’ has given many unforgettable memories and those are the most cherished moments of my life. And it is going to continue in future too 🙂 . The joy from discussions during such meetings and sharing of thoughts also cannot be expressed in words. And most importantly during such meetings I also got a chance to meet many respected and dedicated ‘like-minded peoples’ who in their own capacity are not less than a ‘encyclopaedia’ about yesteryears Hindi films and Hindi film music.

Thanking again to Atul ji and all other members and this wonderful blog. . . I am trying to express my feelings in the following ‘poem’;

उन यादों को, उन किस्सों को,
उस कहानी को,
शायद इसी दिन के लिए संभाला था
मन गुंजन करता ये भंवर
शायद इसी पल के लिए बेताब था

 दिल का ये भंवर
नादान ही तो था
कुंज कुंज करता गुंजन
भीतर भीतर बेचैन था
मिले जो आप तो ये चहकने लगा
सुरीली यादें बिखेरने लगा
बचपन फिर से मुस्काया
जवानी ने जैसे ली अंगडाई
एक कहानी को मंजिल मिली
कुछ यादों को भूली हुयी तारीख मिली
कुछ किस्सों को एक पड़ाव मिला
तन्हाई को एक महफ़िल मिली
साथी नए नए मिले
सुरीले सफ़र का कारवां मिला

 

And let us now enjoy the song with a vintage Kishore voice from the 1971 movie ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’. (Yes, the year of this movie is to be corrected as ‘1971’ on the blog and for the two posts already posted on the blog. Though in the second post one tag ‘songs of’ is correct i.e. ‘songs of 1971’)

‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ was directed by Randhir Kapoor for R.K. Films, Bombay. This was Randhir Kapoor’s first movie too and he was introduced or launched in style with also given direction of this movie. It was produced by Raj Kapoor.

It had Prithviraj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Babita, Narendranath, Roopesh Kumar, Achala Sachdev, David, Tiwari, Iftekhar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Vishwa Mehra, Sarita, Aarti, Asha Chandra, Shri Ram Shastri, Mansaram, Sumita Khurana, Pardesi, Uma Dutt, Rashid Khan, Mandhir Siyal, Prakash Mishra, Ranveer Raj, Ghanshyam Rohida and others.

Story, Screenplay and Dialogues of this movie were written by Virendra Sinha. Editing of this movie was done by S.R. Kabre. It was passed by Censor Board on 11.11.1971.

This movie has six songs penned by three lyricists – Hasrat Jaipuri (two songs), Neeraj (three songs) and Shaily Shailendra (one song). Music for this movie is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mukesh, and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

I think I have watched some part of this movie or may be the whole movie on TV or somewhere else, but I do not remember it now except I remember vaguely about its storyline. Knowledgeable readers may kindly throw more light on this movie and its songs please.

Two songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog earlier. And the today’s song is the third song of this movie being presented on the blog on the special occasion of ‘Blog’s 15k Songs Festival’ 😊

Today is also the 97th birth anniversary of songwriter Hasrat Jaipuri.

Blog Day : 3882 Post No. : 14908

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 11
————————————————

5th March, 2009. As many as nine song posted on that day. Of course, from 9 different films. And guess what, over the years, eight of these films have been yippeee’d already. The films are

  • ‘Shahjehaan’ from 1946,
  • ‘Munim ji’ from 1955,
  • ‘Kaala Pani’ from 1958,
  • ‘Goonj Uthi Shehna’ from 1959,
  • ‘Umar Qaid’ from 1961,
  • ‘Bin Baadal Barsaat’ and ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ from 1963,
  • and then ‘Anubhav’ from 1971,
  • and lastly ‘Raja Jaani’ from 1972.

Except for the last listed film above, all the other eight films that appeared on that day have all their songs posted here. And so the only option left to present a 10 year challenge post is a song from ‘Raja Jaani’ from 1972.

The song I present today is performed on screen by Hema Malini, as she is making efforts to woo and evoke the interest in the mind of a reluctant hero – Dharmendra. It was a time when the real life romance of Hema Malini and Dharmendra was just taking off and was coming in the notice of the media and the public. It is speculative to say whether such a real life situation adds to the reel performances. 🙂

The songs of this film are written by Anand Bakshi, and the music is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar. The performance gets quite close to the category of a ‘seduction’ song.

‘Reel-life’ or ‘Real-life’ – I leave it up to the readers to judge. 😉

 

Song – Aa Aa Ja, Aa Jaa, Kuchh Keh Jaa, Kuchh Sun Jaa  (Raja Jaani) (1972) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics
