Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, so introducing another popular song that got very quickly reused in a subsequent film. This raunchy item number surprised everyone when it came out for the first time. The film is ‘Inkaar’ from 1977. It was cops and robbers story – B-grade cinema but it was done very professionally, giving some true insight into the normal working of the police force.

This song, which is performed by Helen in the film, became very popular in its time. And the wonder part of this song was / is the voice that has rendered it. The voice is of Usha Mangeshkar. One does not hear her voice in item numbers. Maybe part of a twin dance duet singing. But not an out and out item song. Somehow the selection of his voice for the setting clicked absolutely well. The setting of the song in the original film is a roadside tavern – a desi daaru ka adda. A counter for selling liquor and some chairs and tables for the clients to enjoy their glass that cheers. The dancer, Helen, is very much in the native Maharashtrian attire, wearing the dhoti in the typical lavangi style. The scenario, the persona – the singing voice suited everything to a T.

Fast forward to 1984. The film is ‘Andar Baahar’. This is another cops and robbers tale. Jackie Shroff is a police inspector who has lost his senior partner (role played by Parikshit Sahni) to the bullets of criminals. He vows revenge, and for that he takes permission to pull out a jailed criminal (role played by Anil Kapoor), and enrolls him as his partner, because he can identify the gangster boss. Anil Kapoor, who is a hardened criminal otherwise, has a difficult time adjusting to a role on the other side of the law. So within the very first one or two days, taking advantage of his newly given freedom, he disappears from Jackie Shroff’s home. Jackie is worried, on many counts, and sets out to search for him. Following his instincts he goes to the city red light area and his hunch is proved correct. Anil Kapoor is in a binge of drink and dance with a dancing girl of the area, role played by Jaishree T. And the song that is used in this scene is the iconic Usha Mangeshkar number, repeated from the film ‘Inkaar’.

The reuse is a direct replay without re-recording. The song duration is shorter because only one stanza of the song is utilized. Once again, being a repeat song, this does not appear in the Geet Kosh listings for the latter film. I have retained the credits for the song, from the original film – Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan. Incidentally the music director for the latter film is RD Burman.

So another popular song reused in a later film. I accidentally ran into this song, as I was searching for another video clip to complete another post. The song “Hum Ko To Yaari Se Matlab Hai” from film ‘Andar Baahar’ has a sad version that was not getting located. I played thru the film in fast forward mode. It was a short clip but I was able to locate it. In the process, the bonus was the discovery of this repeat song that would have otherwise not been located, as it is not listed. A good chance discovery.

Song –  Tu..u..u Mungdaa, Mungdaa Main Gud Ki Dhali  (Andar Baahar) (1984) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

tu..u..u
mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
tu..u..u
mungdaa ha mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali

aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
aashiq apna
mungdaa mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali

तू॰॰ऊ॰॰ऊ
मूंगड़ा मूंगड़ा
मैं गुड़ की डली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली
तू॰॰ऊ॰॰ऊ
मूंगड़ा मूंगड़ा
मैं गुड़ की डली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली

आपस की चाल
देखे तो लुट जाये
आपस की चाल
देखे तो लुट जाये
तू जिस पे नैना डाल
हाथों से प्याला सटक जाये
तू जिस पे नैना डाल
हाथों से प्याला सटक जाये
आशिक अपना मूंगड़ा
मूंगड़ा मूंगड़ा
मैं गुड़ की डली
कैसा मुल्गा है रे शर्मिला
तुझसे तो मुल्गी भली
कैसा मुल्गा है रे शर्मिला
तुझसे तो मुल्गी भली

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I present here a repeat song that is quite different from the string of songs in this series so far. I shall begin by introducing the original song.

The original song is from the 1953 film – ‘Hamdard’. The song has been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music composition is by Anil Biswas. The original song is in the voice of Manna Dey, and it is already posted on the blog a good eight years ago. That post can be viewed at “Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya”.

The repeat song, this time appearing in the film ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ from 1960. The song is the same, but for the latter film, it has been re-recorded. The music director of the latter film is Ravi. The second recording is different, both with regards to the composition, as well as the singing voice. The latter song has been recorded in the voice of Rafi Sb, in a tune that is quite different from the original.

In the latter film, only the mukhda of the song is present. The full song is not presented. It would be interesting to know whether the latter version of the song was recorded as a complete song, or only the lines that are actually present in the film.

So the repeat song has been re-recorded, using a different tune, and in a different voice. And it is only used partially. There surely are other instances in Hindi films, where snippets of songs from earlier films have been used partially. This case is interesting, in that it has been formally re-recorded, different voice, different tune. As far as I can check, it appears that this is the only instance of its kind, in the category of repeat songs.

Here is another very interesting anecdote about this song. There is actually another instance in Hindi films, where these lines appear, albeit equally briefly. The film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ from 1966. The scenario is played out as follows.

The location is again the restaurant of the hotel. Shammi Kapoor, or Rocky, (also Anil) has just finished singing the song – “Tumne Mujhe Dekha Ho Kar Meharbaan”. He is on the seventh heaven, considering that Asha Parekh, or Sunita has come to his performance of this song. Little does he know that the letter that was supposed to reach her the previous evening has just been delivered to her in the restaurant. Of course, knowing the truth, Sunita is livid at the deception played by Anil. And Anil, on the seventh heaven, has completed the song and launches into a monologue, telling the audience, how lucky he is having found love. He reaches the table where Sunita is sitting, and she is in tears. Continuing the monologue, Anil reaches out for her hand, and starts to speak these lines –

Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya
Ke Chirag Raah Mein Jal Gaye. . .

The unexpected next instant is a shock, as Sunita pulls back her hand and lands a resounding slap on Anil’s cheek.

So a very interesting set of appearances these lines make – from 1953 to 1960 to 1966.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, on his 40th remembrance day.

This snippet also brings back memories of another great performer – Kumkum, who passed away on 28th July, three days ago. In the closing minutes of this film, she makes a decision and leaves her home, to follow the person she loves, no matter that person is a dishonest conman.

Song – Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya  (Tu Nahin Aur Sahi) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Ravi
[Note: The music director for the original tune in ‘Hamdard’ is Anil Biswas.]

Lyrics

tera haath haath mein aa gaya
ke chiraag raah mein jal gaye
mujhe sehal ho gayin manzilen
wo hawa ke rulh bhi badal gaye

tera haath haath mein aa gaya

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया
के चिराग़ राह में जल गए
मुझे सेहल हो गईं मंज़िलें
वो हवा के रुख भी बादल गए

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया
