(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#1)

Welcome all, to this post which is another of those posts of mine that was planned way back (in February 2019, to be precise)when I presented a song from the 1977 movie ‘Paapi’.

Music for this movie ‘Paapi-1977’ was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Though I had not watched this movie ‘Paapi-1977’, I liked the song that I then presented. Today’s song, also by Bappi Lahiri, came up in the list of suggestions that appeared in ‘YouTube’ with that song.

One comments on YT on this song caught my attention. The comment was about the use of ‘flute & base guitar’ in the today’s song. When I listened to the song I was awestruck. I do not remember to have listened to this song any time before. And also, may be the movie it was from, wasn’t a successful movie this song may have been forgotten easily.

So, it was then that I decided to take up this song for presentation, and was looking for the right occasion. Later on, I decided to send it for posting on 27th November the birth day of composer, singer Bappi Lahiri (sources mentioned him as a dancer, disco musician, and actor and record producer too).

Bappi Lahiri was born on 27th November’1952 in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal to Aparesh Lahiri and Bansari Lahiri who themselves were accomplished Bengali singers and musicians. Both his parents also came from Jalpaiguri.

On 27th November’2019 Bappi Lahiri celebrated his sixty-seventh birthday!!!

Today we belatedly wishing him a ‘very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful musical life ahead’.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview), this year in 2019 he has completed fifty years in his film-music journey. He has many records on his name and also have been conferred by many many awards till now. And he is still going on – rocking.

The first Hindi movie he composed music was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.

I was never a big Bappi Lahiri fan, but I was actively considering writing about Bappi Lahiri compositions. The reason behind this was that here in our camp, we were listening to many of his songs (both as a composer and singer) during our regular parties and I realised that these songs were liked by many and they all have good music, particularly the ‘beats’ which people danced and enjoyed a lot. These were mainly the songs from his ‘disco era’.

One of my bosses particularly loved ‘Jeele le jeele le aayo aayo jeele le’ every time ‘bhaai ye gaana zaroor bajaana’. On one or two occasions when he was asking us to play some ‘English’ or ‘Kenyan’ music I brought him back to the songs of ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, ‘Disco Dancer’ or played other Bappi Lahiri songs.

‘Bambai se aaya mare dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was perhaps the song that first introduced me with the music of Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loud speakers or in orchestras.

Subsequently I got introduced to songs from ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc.
I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I had not watched these movies until now.

I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because they were played by my friends during the summer vacation of 1983 after our 10th board exams were over.

Bappi Lahiri had composed some nice songs in his pre-‘disco era’ that I was not aware of. Subsequently I have discovered a few such songs and I have shared afew of them on the blog.

For example, songs like ‘Ye naina ye kaajal’ from ‘Dil Se Mile Dil-1978’, ‘Sainyya bina ghar soona’ from ‘Aangan Ki Kali-1979’ etc. were shared by me long back.

After ‘Disco Dancer’ it was ‘Himmatwaala-1983’ which I watched with my younger brothers & cousins in the summer vacations (1983) and I liked few of its songs if not all.

Then there were movies where Bappi Lahiri composed songs for the movies from ‘South’ banners where Jeetendra was the main hero. From these movies I remember, ‘Jaani Dost-1983’, ‘Haisiyat-1984’, ‘Tohfaa-1984’ and of course I like all songs from ‘Sharaabi-1984’.
I also liked some of the songs from ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’ which I watched during my stay at Akola (1983-1985).

I didn’t like the songs from ‘Mawaali-1983’. I liked one or two songs from ‘Justice Chaudhary-1983’. I did not watch these movies.

During 1983-85 when I was studying in 11th-12th standard disco music was ruling the charts in India. But I was more inclined to the golden era of HFM then and Rajesh Khanna movies, so I lost the track of many Bappi Lahiri songs and may be even not liking some of them.

However, I like one or two songs from some of the Rajesh Khanna movies where Bappi Lahiri composed the music for them and which were released from 1984-1984 onwards.
In between during this decade i.e. 1981-1990 and onwards 1990 there are movies where I like some of the songs from the movies where Bappi Lahiri had composed the music for. But I am not listing them here all (and maybe I will be taking them in my posts in future on Bappi Da 😊).

So, for this post when I decided to present this song from the 1980 movie ‘Saboot’ I just thought to a look on the movies released in the decade of 1971-1980 and of which the music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

During the preparation of this list I came across many movies of this period when Bappi Da had created some musical gems, that failed to get popular as the movies failed at the box office. The song under discussion is a case in example. I also realized that I liked many of his songs but I may not have given that much attention to the songs composed by him before the ‘disco era’ or even after ‘1985-1986’.

Like, when I came a across the movie name ‘Ek Ladki Badnaam Si’ which was not released, and looked for its songs, I found that already one of its songs has been posted in a detailed post on Bappi Lahiri by Sudhir ji here.

So, instead of going into the other details I will come back to the list of movies where Bappi Lahiri has given music in the decade 1971-1980 starting in 1973 with ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’. Incidentally this movie was introduced on the blog by ‘yours junior’ 🙂 only.

(Also, I got an opportunity to introduce movies ‘Paapi-1977’, ‘Ek Baar Kaho-1980’, ‘Patitaa-1980’ earlier on the blog 🙂 )

‘Saboot-1980’ was directed Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay for ‘The Bharat Pictures, Madras’

It was presented by Abbasi Brothers. It was produced by Raaj Baweja and G.H. Navani.

It had Navin Nischol, Vidya Sinha, Kaajal Kiran, Om Shivpuri and Prem Chopra.

Vinod Mehra makes a friendly appearance in this movie.

While the other cast includes Padma Khanna, Rajendranath, Paintal, Narendranath, Mohan Sherry, Sudhir Dalvi, Amar Mrudulla, Roopesh Kumar, Gauri Varma, Maruti, Mohan Choti, Trilok Kapoor, Rajkishore, Raj Mehra, Darshan, Rajan Kapoor, Sunder Tinea, Moolchand, Sheikh, Jugnu, Birbal, Albela, Azad.

Story of this movie was written by J.K. Ahuja, and Omar Khayyam Saharanpuri wrote the dialogues. Screenplay was written by Kumar Ramsay.

Bal Korde was the editor of this movie and Shyam Ramsay was his co-editor.

This movie had total five songs (including one multiple version song) written by Amit Khanna. Music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Bappi Lahiri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.02.1980 with restricted viewing certificate.

With today’s song ‘Saboot-1980’ makes its debut on the blog.

There is one more song in this movie ‘Jeena bhi koi jeena hai, jab tak tera saath nahin’ which sounds familiar to me and I listened to it and liked it too. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar and is multiple version song.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song where in Kaajal Kiran is lip syncing to Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The song is picturised on Kaajal Kiran and Navin Nischol who seems to be a little hesitant first to the invitation from Kaajal Kiran, but surrenders in the end of the song.
Kajal Kiran or Sunita Kulkarni (her real name) which I became aware only recently celebrated her sixty-first birth anniversary on 18th October (born on 18.10.1958).
She became famous with her debut in ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin-1977’. And after that went on to act in many movies but none of them got the level of ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’. And very few of them were successful to an extent. She retired from the movie scene in around end eighties.

Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay the famous of the seven Ramsay brothers jointly directed this movie. F.U. Ramsay the famous Producer was their father.
Kumar Ramsay, Keshu Ramsay, Arjun Ramsay, Gangu Ramsay and Kiran Ramsay are the other five brothers among the seven Ramsay brothers.
They mainly produced and directed ‘Horror’ movies starting with ‘Do Gaz Zameen Ke Neeche-1972’.

Tulsi Ramsay (born on 29th July’1944) passed away last year on 13th December 2018. He directed many movies and also Producer, Production Designer and Writer.
Shyam Ramsay (born on 17.05.1952) who passed away recently on 18th September 2019 was also director of many movies other than that he was also Producer, editor and writer for many movies.
I think both of them also jointly directed many movies or many movies had the director name as ‘Ramsay Brothers’. I am not mentioning more about the films they produced or directed, because that will require another detailed post.

Coming back to today’s song, the lyrics are by Amit Khanna and music is composed by Bappi Lahiri. This lovely song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar…

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah ha, even this song. 🙂

The film is ‘Alag Alag’ from 1985. Repeating an iconic song from the 1969 film ‘Aradhna’. And surely, the important thing to note is that the repeat would have involved no negotiations etc. The director, Shakti Samant, and the song writer Anand Bakshi, are the same. The producer of ‘Aradhna’ is Shakti Samant, and the producer of ‘Alag Alag’ is Rajesh Khanna, who incidentally appears in both the films. The music director of ‘Aradhna’ is SD Burman, and the music director for ‘Alag Alag’ is his son, RD Burman. I would believe that getting permission to repeat this song would have been quite easy. 🙂

As I checked out the the earlier posted original song (on 13 Jan, 2013) I notice that this repeat song is already identified by Sadanand ji in a comment posted on 31st Oct last year. And so, this song found its entry on the blog via this series. Well, for one, it is not listed in the Geet Kosh. That is the interesting part. There are seven songs listed for this film, and the singers listed against each one. The name Kavita Krishnamurthy, the singing voice of this version of the song, does not appear against any of the listed songs. Then, in the footnote, there is compiled list of playback singers given, which includes Kavita’s name, indicating that she has sung something for this film. If one does not view the film, and is not aware of this repeat performance of this song, one will keep wondering why does Kavita Krishnmurthy’s name appears in the list of playback singers, when she has not lent her voice to any song.

The 1985 film ‘Alag Alag’ is produced by Rajesh Khanna and Kusum Narula, under the banner of Aashirwaad Films International, Bombay. With this film, Rajesh Khanna made his debut as a producer in the industry. A small anecdote is noted – that Kishore Kumar did not accept any payment for his singing assignments in this film. He said that he felt indebted to Rajesh Khanna and ‘Aradhna’ for catapulting his career to a new high, and this being Rajesh’s first film as a producer, he would sing for him without accepting any payments.

The star cast of this film is listed as Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Deven Verma, Sushma Seth, Gita Siddhartha, Urmila Bhatt, Anjana, Raj Rani, Rajesh Puri, Subiraj, Asit Sen, Bharat Bhushan, Bhagwan, Satyen Kappu, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Vikas Anand, Manmauji, Manik Dutt, Sunil Dhawan, Kamal Kanchan, Anoop, Pratap, Surendra, Shyam, Mohit, S Chavan, Gurubachan, with special appearance by Bindu and friendly appearances by Om Prakash and On Shivpuri.

Briefly, the story of this film is,

Tina Munim is a village belle, whose only dream in life is to marry a rich man. She comes to Bombay, meets Rajesh Khanna, and mistakes him for a rich man. When he reveals that he is not a rich man, but is a struggling singer looking for work in the film industry, she dumps him. Later in the film, we find out that he is actually a rich man’s son, who is out on his own, because his parents do not appreciate his desire to be a singer. The next set of events brings Tina to the home of Shashi Kapoor, who is a doctor and is widowed. Pursuing her goal with the single minded devotion, she now attempts to become his wife, This song is placed in the film at this juncture, as she tries to woo him.

The rest of the story is quite intertwined. Shashi Kapoor actually treats Tina Munim as a daughter. Rajesh comes to the doctor to get a false disability certificate as a reference. Tina meets him, confronts him and exposes him. Rajesh leaves, then is involved in an accident in which he loses his voice. He rejoins his family. Shashi Kapoor passes away on account of some illness. Tina is back on the road. With the help of his mother, Rajesh tries to promote Tina as a singer, without letting her know. They meet again, but Rajesh leaves because of his disability. Tina mistakes this to be that Rajesh hates her. And on goes the storyline, inching towards a happily ever after and a miraculous restoration of voice etc. 🙂

We come to this repeat song with a difference. So far in this series, most of the songs that have been reused, are presented as the original recording – barring “Babul Mora. . .” and “I Am A Disco Dancer“, which have been re-recorded in different singing voices. Today’s song also belongs to this latter group – that it is also a re-recorded version and not the original. The original, of course is Kishore Da, and in this female re-rendered version, the singing voice is Kavita Krishnamurthy.

You will notice that Tina’s attire in this song is quite similar to Sharmila’s in the original. An interesting repeat this one is. Enjoy.

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

Missing Films of 1960s – 92
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

For today’s episode of this series, I present this sensuous song from the 1970 film ‘Veer Abhimanyu’.  As the name suggests, this is a mythological film, which based on the historical narrative from the epic Mahabharat. It covers the part of history of Abhimanyu, the son of Arjun. I give a brief summary below.

Abhimanyu is the son of Arjun and Subhadra. As Subhadra is the younger sister of Krishna and Balram, that makes Krishna and Balram uncles (mamma) of Abhimanyu. Being the son and nephew of the three best stalwarts of this epic, Abhimanyu is groomed to become one of the bravest and best warriors amongst the entire Kuru clan (i.e. both the Kaurav and Pandav lineages).

There is a short episode in Mahabharat, where it is narrated how Abhimanyu learnt the art of piercing and entering the Chakravyuh formation on a battlefield. A Chakravyuh is a formidable and impenetrable discus shaped formation of soldiers. The main purpose of this formation is to keep safe the generals and the battle leaders from the enemy warriors. It is a complex structure of intertwined ring formations of soldiers, and is almost impossible to penetrate. When Subhadra was pregnant, carrying Abhimanyu in her womb, one night Arjun was describing the complex structure of this formation, the trick to penetrate and enter it, then how to destroy it from the inside and then exit from the ruins of this formation. It is stated that Abhimanyu learnt this warfare strategy, in his mother’s womb, while Arjun was describing it. As the narrative tells us, after listening to about half of this description, Subhadra drifted into sleep. And so, Abhimanyu could imbibe only the first half of this strategy, i.e. penetrating and entering this formation, but could not get the remaining description on how to exit from it. This partial learning had a very telling consequence on battlefield of Kurukshetra.

As the Mahabharat war started, Abhimanyu was one of the primary architects of the roster of daily victories for the Pandavs. He was just sixteen years old at that time. On the first day of warfare, Abhimanyu engaged Bhisma, his great grandfather, in one-on-one battle. By the end of the day, Bhishma is not able to overcome Abhmanyu, rather by end of the day, Abhimanyu breaks the bow in the hands of Bhishma. And the day ends. On the second day, Abhimanyu attacks Ashwathama, son of Dronacharya, the seer who has taught the Kauravs and Pandavs in the skills and art of waepons and warfare. On hearing that Abhimanyu has attacked Ashwathama, Drona immediately comes to his son’s assistance. Another day long duel happens, and Drona is finally at the mercy of Abhimanyu. And the day ends.

For the third day, Drona devises a deceptive strategy. A part of Kaurav army would engage and draw away Arjun, and Krishna along with him, to a far point from the main battlefield. Then another part of the Kaurav army would form the Chakravyuh, and engage the remaining warriors of the Pandav army, which would expectedly be led by Abhimanyu. To everyone’s knowledge, only two people know the stratagem of how to break the Chakravyuh formation – Arjun and Krishna. And both of them are lured away on a deceptive trail elsewhere. The purpose is to engage and defeat Abhimanyu, without exposing the main warriors of the Kaurav side. To everyone’s surprise, Abhmanyu, instead of being daunted in the face of the Chakravyuh takes on the challenge, breaks it and enters. The Kaurav battle leaders are frightened – that this boy knows the secrets of this strategy. But in fact, Abhimanyu knows only half the strategy, as described above. He nonetheless enters the Chakravyuh. There is a long list of names of warriors on Kaurav side given in the narrative – the ones who are defeated and killed by Abhimanyu on that day. But in the end, being unable to make progress outwards from the Chakravyuh, Abhimanyu is surrounded by the Kaurav warriors, who engage him one-to-many.

Abhimanyu fights till the end. The horses of his chariot are killed, Kripacharya kills his chariot drivers, his chariot is destroyed, his bow is broken by an arrow from behind him, fired by Karna. He takes to fight with sword and shield, then takes on a chariot wheel to stave off his opponents. When the chariot wheel also is broken, he is engaged in gada-yudh (fighting using the mace) by son of Dushaasan. In the end, he is killed by a blow of mace from the behind.

In this episode, the stalwarts of the Kaurav army broke so many rules of warfare engagements, that were conventionally agreed upon by the two armies. There would only be one-on-one battle between warriors; an injured warrior would not be attacked; a warrior not having any weapons or arms would not be attacked; the chariot horses and chariot drivers would not be attacked; no warrior would be attacked from behind. Such was the prowess and the fighting ability of this young warrior, and such was the fear he generated when he penetrated the Chakravyuh that the entire Kaurav army on that day, including Bhishma, Drona, Kripacharya, Karna, Duryodhan, Dushaasan, and many others, put together their strength, and broke umpteen rules of engagement, in their endeavor to take out Abhimanyu from the battle equation.

The amorous side of this narrative is the marriage of Abhimanyu with Uttara.

Abhimanyu’s wife is Uttara, the daughter of King Viraat. Their coming together is also an interesting narrative. When the Pandavs have been exiled, they are supposed to spend twelve years away from from Hastinapur, and after that they have to spend one year in agyaat-vaas – incognito anonymous exile. If by any chance, their whereabouts become known during this last one year, the term of their exile would be extended by another twelve years. During this period of agyaat-vaas, Pandavs take refuge in the kingdom of King Viraat, all being disguised into different roles concealing their real identities.

As part of this masquerade, Arjun takes on the role of Brihannala, an eunuch who teaches music and dance to the children of King Viraat. Later, when their identities are revealed at the end of this period, King Viraat is gratuitous and happy, and proposes to offer his daughter Uttara in marriage to Arjun. Arjun declines the proposal saying that since Uttara is his student, he cannot think of a matrimonial relationship with her. He, in turn proposes to accept her as his daughter-in-law, much to the delight of King Viraat and the entire Pandav family. The Pandav family is rejoicing because, unknown to Arjun, but known to Yudhishtar and Draupadi, Abhimanyu and Uttara have already met and are in love.

When the sad end comes for Abhimanyu in the battlefield, Uttara is carrying his child – Parikshit. Parikshit goes on to inherit the throne of Hasitnapur, as the sole surviving heir of the entire Kuru clan. After the demise of all other male members of the two families in the great war, and after the departure of Pandavas alongwith Draupdi to the Himalayas, Pariskshit becomes the King of this land. His reign also signals the advent of the Kali-yug on this earth.

The song that is presented today, depicts the yearning of Uttara for Abhimanyu. The two have already met, are in love, and the lady is pining for his company. On screen, the role of Uttara is played by Kanchana. The lady who accompanies her is Krishna Kumari, an actress from Tamil / Telugu films. [Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]
She is accompanied by another lady friend, who I am not able to identify. I request other knowledgeable readers to please help identify this actress.

The film is produced under the banner of Shri Rajlakshmi Pictures, Madras, and is directed by V Madhusudan Rao. Quite possibly, this is a Hindi remake of the original Tamil or Telugu version. The star cast is listed as NT Ramarao, Shobhan Babu, Pehalwan Kantarao, Padmanabhan, Kanchana, and G Varalakshmi. Six songs are listed for this film, all are written by Prem Dhawan, and the music is also composed by him.

We have had some recent discussion on sensuous and suggestive songs in the early decades, some of which were ordered to be cut from the film by the Censor Board. This song is quite high in that category of being sensuous and suggestive. And yet, in 1970, this song was allowed by the Censor Board. The social and moral norms change so much over the decades.

However, apart from the visuals, I liked this song for the quality of its verses, the music, and its rendition. A very well created song in my opinion.

Song – Kisne Chhoo Liya Naazuk Tan Haaye Ram  (Veer Abhimanyu) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan

Lyrics

Missing Films of 1960s – 88
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This journey of searching out the missing films is such an interesting exploration of the unheard and less heard gems – or as they say on Radio Ceylon (SLBC now) ‘कम सुने और अनसुने गीत’.

Today’s song is one such rarely heard gem, but oh what exquisitely crafted gem this one is. The film is ‘Haveli’ from 1970. The name sounds as if this would be a film of the horror genre, of course mixed with police and robber crime drama. The one poster of this film that I am able to locate on the net (actually an image with the song on YT), shows the leading lady with a revolver in her hand. The rest of the poster combines the film title logo, and another image of the lead pair. This image does not exhibit any overt horror type flavor – just that the title gives such an impression.

The film is from the banner of Movies Den, Bombay. It is produced by Jawahar Anand and is directed by Sudarshan Babbar. The lead pair is Shailesh Kumar and Nivedita, and the remaining cast is listed as Azra, Heeralal, Manmohan Krishan, Ravikant, Brahm Bhardwaj, Lata Arora, Yunus Parvez, Ridku, Anand Prakash, Jawahar Kapoor, BK, Rahi, Dharmesh, Rajendra Kapoor, Jaishri T, Meenakshi, and Shefali.

The film has 5 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. Four of these songs, including the one being introduced today, are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and one is written by Naseem Sahranpuri. Music for this film and composed by Sapan Jagmohan. The singing voice is Asha Bhosle.

Although I have not seen the video of this song, but still, from the flavor of the words and the style of rendition, this seems to be a sensuous song, possibly even a seduction song. The measured deliberateness with which Asha ji has rendered this song, brings in just that right emphasis making this such an attractively sensuous song.

The cast of actors includes names like Jaishree T, Azra, Meenakshi, Shefali – so I would not even start to guess on whom this song might have been picturized. I request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

But regardless, enjoy this wonderfully sensuous song.

Song – Gesuon Ki Haseen Chhanv Mein Humnasheen  (Haveli) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 10
———————————————————————

I have just finished noting down lyrics of the song I have chosen – it has taken me one hour at least. I have listened to the song close to 4-5 times. I had to listen to some parts again and again trying to figure out what the singer was saying, revise my lyrics and note down which portions were sung by the male or female singer and which was sung by them both. I do this only once in a while, not being the owner of the blog but an occasional participant. It made me appreciate more and more the amount of dedication the usual writers put in. To combine all this with a write up to explain the song, add anecdotes related to the song and sometimes, stories that led to the song is all hard work, believe me. In this age and time of quick fixes, short cuts, bullet points and shortened attention spans it is difficult to even understand this kind of dedication.

Hats off to the owners of the blog (Atul ji and Sudhir ji) and a team of dedicated Atulties who fuel this blog with their enthusiasm. There are many Atulites who are intensely interested in the goings on related to the blog. I find they are all lovely people who share a deep love of music. Their camaraderie is commendable, not only do they discuss the events on the blog, but also try their best to meet up often. I have attended one such meeting and have been awed by the depth of knowledge they have of music and the various ways in which they share their knowledge.

I have chosen a song from a relatively new movie, ‘Yahan’ from 2005. It is the directorial debut of Shoojit Sircar who garnered fame for the movie that came after this, ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012) and ‘Piku’ (2015). This movie, as far as I remember, did not make any waves. I happened to see the movie in a cinema hall and was struck by it. Minissha Lamba impressed me and Jimmy Shergill is always a pleasure to watch. The story is about a Kashmiri girl, Ada, who falls in love with an army captain, Aman (Jimmy Shergill). They face many difficulties after they fall in love. Ada risks being ostracized, even killed, for loving an army officer, and that too, not of the same religion. Similarly, Aman is also labelled as a traitor for dealing with Ada’s brother who is a terrorist. The denouement is over simplistic. It is hard to imagine something as complex as Kashmir problem being solved (even in part) by a few acts of an army captain. The charm of the movie lay in the sweet character of the two protagonists. Aman is an upright man who takes full responsibility for the woman he loves. Ada hopes to find peace and love in Aman after dealing with the constant strife in her life.

Listening closely to this song while noting the lyrics, I was struck by the beautiful words penned by Gulzar, clothed most wonderfully by the lovely music composed by Shantanu Moitra. Shreya Ghoshal sings it beautifully, there are times when her voice drops to a whisper and rises again. There are times when the music fades and lets the singer’s voice do its magic. When Shreya sings “Jhelum Mein Beh Lenge”, it feesl like I am floating in Jhelum. The song drips with love and longing. It is hard for a song to be so beautiful unless all three key elements of it, music, lyrics and singing is at its best. In this song you can hear them at their best.

Enjoy the lovely song and send up thanks to our great Atulji for allowing us a platform to enjoy and share music like this and congratulations to all the creators of the blog and the readers.

Missing Films of 1960s – 45
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I scanned the filmography of Nayyar Sb, presented by Atul ji in his late evening post yesterday, my eyes stopped with a jerk on seeing a ‘0’ in the decade of 1960s. Quick shift to the left and I find that the film is ‘The Killers’ from 1969. And the mind said ‘wow’ again – this film, and that too with Nayyar Sb’s music – how can that be an outsider still. Time to set the record right. So the immediate decision was to debut this film – immediately. 🙂

‘The Killers’ – is a kind of a multi starrer before its time. It brought together Sheikh Mukhtar, Dara Singh and Ajit – all stars in their own right of the genre of stunt / suspense / thriller films. Other players in the star cast are Helen (of course), Bela Bose, Leela Chitnis, Bhagwan, Jagdish Raj, Anwar Husain, Amar, Maruti, Savita, Sushma, Ram Lal, and Kundan etc. And yes, the alternate title of this film, now do not be surprised – ‘Hum Sab Qaatil Hain’, a la ‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain’ and ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’.  😀 😀

The film is produced under the banner of Sangam Films, Bombay, and is directed by Maruti. The six songs in this film are shared between Aziz Kashmiri (2) and SH Bihari(4). This song is written by SH Bihari. Music – yes OP Nayyar Sb.

A wonderfully composed song, that immediately brings to memory, the similarly paced song – “Hum Ne To Dil Ko Aap Ke Kadmon Mein Rakh Diya”, sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle for Nayyar Sb in the film ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965). The use of sitar is simply so exquisite.

On screen, the song has been performed so sensuously by Helen, as she showers her graces on to her beau, role played by Dara Singh. In the initial moments of the song, the gentleman seems spooked, watching the lady wearing a towel, and then getting ready. He has this bowled over astounded expression on his face – almost as if, if he was required to say something, then God help the director.

But all in all, a wonderful composition, and performed equally wonderfully on screen by Helen. This is not a dance song, but she has conducted herself extremely tastefully.

With this, the film ‘The Killers’ makes its debut on our blog. And enjoy this lovely song. And the Helen performance.  🙂

 

Song – Nazren Mila Ke Aap Ne Ehsaan Kar Diya  (The Killers) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

hmmm hmmm hmmm
la la la la laaa lalla
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm

nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
duniya mein aur kuchh bhi nahin
pyaar ke siwa
sab kuchh wafaa ke naam pe
qurbaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya

bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
mushqil tha zindagi ka safar
aap ke bagair
baahon mein le ke aap ne
aasaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
दुनिया में और कुछ भी नहीं
प्यार के सिवा
सब कुछ वफा के नाम पे
कुर्बान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया

बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
मुश्किल था ज़िंदगी का सफर
आप के बगैर
बाहों में ले के आप ने
आसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.

There are people who look forward to the weekends and they raise a silent or may be not so silent hurray as soon as they leave from their office to their home on friday evening. Why are people so happy during weekends and what exactly do they do on weekends ? I feel that working people are happy on realising that they will not have to be at the beck and call of their boss in the office for the next two days. They hope that they would be their own bosses for the next two days. Weekends are especially sweet for those people who feel that they have the misfortune of working with the worst boss in the world. 🙂

Atul often says that inspite of the blog having already clocked five-digit number of songs, there are still plenty of very good songs out there that have still not found their way to the blog.

In my opinion, that is not a bad thing, because it keeps our journey of discovery interesting and exciting. Compiling songs on this blog is as much about the journey as about the destination – and we take as much pleasure in the journey as in getting closer to our destination. We have milestones, minor and major, that keep beckoning to us to approach them – and as we pass each milestone, we not only celebrate it but also set our sights on the next one.
