Today’s song is from the film Nai Duniya-42. The film was made by Circo productions of Chimanlal Trivedi and was directed by A R Kardar, with music by Naushad Ali.

Naushad was my favourite composer. Having come up from scratch to the zenith of popularity and fame, he had put in lot of hard work in early days of his career. Naushad may or may not be the best Composer the HFM ever had, but he certainly was a good example of Rags to Riches story of Filmy Duniya. He rose from the footpath and became one of the most successful composers ever in Hindi Films. Added to this was his good nature, Lucknowi Tahzib and hard work. This made him a man with least enemies ( competitors-yes, but enemies-No ) and on whose name alone films were sold during his peak period.

Naushad was the only composer on whom 6 Documentaries were made. A student Ms.Mala Sinha secured her Ph.D., making Naushad as a subject of her research. Starting with Rs.40 a month, Naushad was the First to demand and get Rs.ONE LAKH per film and was also the first composer to build his own Bungalow in a posh locality of Bombay with a Music room for doing rehearsals.

When he was on the Top, a trailer of film “Dastaan”-1950 featured Naushad on the screen showing crowds shouting ” 40 karod mein ek hi Naushad “. Such was his saleability that A R Kardar, who had always used Naushad for his own gains, was forced to make Naushad his partner in producing films under their banner ” Musical Pictures .

Naushad was undoubtedly the most successful composer HFM ever had. Out of the 65 films that he did in Hindi, 50% had celebrated jubilees. This is a record unmatched so far. His tally was 3 Diamond Jubilees ( Rattan, Baiju Bawra and Mughal-e-Azam ), 6 Golden Jubilees ( Mela, Andaz, Deedar, Aan, Mother India and Gunga Jamuna ) and 23 Silver Jubilees (Station master, Sharda, Namaste, Sanjog, Pehle aap, Kanoon, Keemat, Sanyasi, Anmol Ghadi, Shahjehan, Natak, Dard, Anokhi Ada, Dillagi, Dulari, Babul, Dastaan, Jadoo, Diwana, Udan Khatola, Kohinoor, Mere Mehboob and Ram aur Shyam ).

Naushad was the First winner of Filmfare Award in 1954 for a song in Baiju Bawra. The Award Ceremony was held in Broadway Theatre, Bombay. Ironically, it was bang opposite this Theatre that Naushad had spent his struggling days and Nights on the Footpath ! Naushad recieved several cherished Awards like Dadasaheb Phalke Award, Padma Bhushan, Lata Mangeshkar award, Maharashtra Bhooshan award, Sahitya and Natak Academy award, Saraswati Award, the IFJ and BFJ awards and scores of other awards.

His first 4 films ( Premnagar-40, Kanchan-41, Mala-41 and Darshan-41), however, were with unimpressive music. From the film Sharda-42, his Luck started changing and then there was no looking back at all for the next 25 successive years. This is exceptional talent and unbelievable Luck.

I see 2 reasons which made him successful. One was his hard work. He never ever compromised on rehearsals and however big the singer was (read Lata) he/she had to come to his Music room for rehearsals on a song for at least 7 to 8 days. He never recorded a song unless he was satisfied fully. Secondly, Naushad had tremendous faith and liking for Indian Classical music, which he used extensively in his songs. Almost all his songs had a classical base and he proved that classical music can be made entertaining for the masses, who could not make a difference between 2 Ragas, but would like his simple and hummable tunes. Very rarely his songs were difficult to hum or sing in the bathroom. He always selected singers based on their suitability for the songs.

After a draught of success, Naushad entered the year 1942. Nai Duniya was his 5th and final film before he began his Success Marathon of jubilees. Out of the 3 films in 1942, his other two films Sharda and Station Master celebrated Silver jubilees. It was only this film-Nai Duniya-which did not celebrate a Jubilee, but this film was no less important and it was a Milestone in the history of HFM.

It was in this film that noted actress singer Suraiyya sang her First recorded film song,as Baby Suraiya ( Boot karoon main polish). I have been seeing that there is a lot of confusion about the Debut song of Suraiya as a playback artiste.

Some people claim that the song ‘ Boot karun mai polish’ from film Nai Duniya-1942 is her first song as a Playback singer and some people claim that the song ‘ Panchhi jaa peechhe raha hai bachpan mera’ from film Sharda-1942 is her debut song as a playback singer.
Naushad himself,in one of the interviews , had said that the Nai Duniya song was her first recorded song as a playback singer.
However, Naushad saab is only partly correct. No doubt this song was recorded earlier ( No. N-26055) and the Sharda song was recorded later (No. N-26099).

Both the films were censored in 1942 only. However film Sharda was released first on 23-1-1943 at Minerva Talkies in Bombay, whereas Nai Duniya was released only on 24-4-1944 at Majestic Talkies in Bombay.

Therefore, the Debut song of Suraiya, as a Playback singer is undoubtedly the Sharda song,namely ‘ Panchhi jaa,peechhe raha”.
Only when a song is released on screen , it is called a Debut song, irrespective of when it was recorded.
The dictionary meaning of “to Debut” is- to perform in public for the first time. Since Sharda song was shown to public first, it becomes Suraiya’s Debut song as a Playback singer.

The song from Nai Duniya-“Boot karoon main polish” at best can be called as “the first recorded song for playback”. The Debut song ‘Panchhi jaa peechhe raha’ was posted by Atul ji on 21-2-2011 here.
( Release dates received with thanks from shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji)

This was also the first movie in which Kardar and Naushad came together. Kardar,in fact, was so much impressed with Naushad’s work style, that he decided to employ Naushad, in Kardar Productions ( which he was about to start soon), as a paid composer for Rs. 500 pm. Naushad,on his part, was very happy that he got into a job, which would ensure a sure income every month.

Later this pair gave film after films successfully. Naushad worked with Kardar for 14 films, excluding films made under the banner of Musical Pictures-in which Naushad was an equal partner with Kardar. Nai Duniya was a Circo production ( Cine Industries Recording Company, owned by Chimanlal Trivedi) and Kardar was only a Film Director for this company. Soon this Circo came up for sale. Kardar bought it to start his production company. He also established a studio in the premises. Kardar made a contract with Naushad for 5 years,but he was allowed to work outside,though the first priority would be Kardar films. Even otherwise also,Naushad restricted his films to 2 to 3 per year,as his style of working needed a long time for rehearsals.

Naushad became a household name all over India after Rattan-44 However he worked in 4 films that year (Rattan,Geet,Jeevan and Pehle Aap.) Similarly in 1949 also he did 4 films (Dillagi, Andaz,Chandni Raat and Dulari). He did only one film each in a few years like for instance- in 1940-Premnagar, 45-Sanyasi, 53-Udan Khatola, 57-Mother India, 58-Sohni Mahiwal, 61-Ganga Jamuna, 62-Son of India, 63-Mere Mehboob , 64- Leader and in 70- Ganwaar.

Nai Duniya-42 was the First ever film produced by Naushad. Later,of course, he made few more films,though he was never at ease as a Producer. For Nai Duniya-42, singer G M Durrani was his chief Musical Assistant. The film cast was Shobhana Samarth,Mazhar Khan, Jairaj, Wasti, Azurie, Jeevan, Ram Awtar etc. Not many readers may know much about old actor Mazhar Khan ( there was another Mazhar Khan in 70s/80s). He was one of the most versatile actors who shifted from Hero’s roles to character roles easily. In Hindi films, the name Khan has always been present in plenty. From Wazir Mohd.Khan of Alam Ara-1931 to Shahrukh Khan of today, there were more than 50 Khans acting in Hindi films.

Mazhar Khan was born in 1907 in the princely state of Dhar in M.P. After Matriculation, he joined Police force due to his build and height, but soon he was fed up and resigned. He straightaway headed for Bombay looking for work in films. Director Durga Prasad Mishra took him in Imperial studio and he did about 19 Silent films starting with Challenge-1929. When Talkie films started, he went to Calcutta, joined New Theatres and worked with K L Saigal in ‘Subah ka Sitara’-1932. For East India Film co.,he did ‘ Ek din ka Baadshah-33’and Raat ka raja-34 in which he did 8 roles in the film. After a few more films, he returned to Bombay and worked in Ranjit and Minerva Movitone films. His career best role came in 1941 in Shantaram’s Padosi, in which he did the famous role of Hindu Friend Thakur, while Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of his Muslim friend. In the prevailing tense communal atmosphere in the country those days,this film was hailed as a milestone depicting life long friendship of a Hindu and a Muslim.

In 1942, he turned Director and did Meri Duniya-42, Yaad-42, Badi Baat-44, Pehli Nazar-45, Dil ki Duniya-49 etc. His noteworthy films were Noorjehan-32, Bharosa-40, Padosi-41 and Ulzan-42. This role was that of a Blind singer-like K C Dey. His last film was Usha Kiran-52. He died on 24-9-1950, before its release.

When you hear today’s song, first time after 1940,you will find that there is melody and Taal in this song. As if there was a transformation, from 1942 onwards, Naushad’s music underwent a sea change. No wonder,in those days people found these songs had easy tunes and a certain melody in them. Naushad’s journey towards success and popularity began with 1942 films.

Film Nai Duniya had 11 songs. 8 songs are already discussed here. Today’s song is the 9th song. This film had 3 songs exclusively by chorus. This was something most unlike Naushad’s style seen in later years. Naushad would have songs sung by 2-3 or even 4 singers( as in Mother India-57) at a time ,but at no time were there any chorus songs in his films exclusively. May be in this film he tried to emulate Anil Biswas who had a penchant for chorus songs in his films. In one of my earlier posts, I have discussed about the chorus songs of Anil Biswas. After this film,something happened to Naushad and suddenly from his next film Sharda-42, he started giving Hit films. These are some of the unexplained wonders of Hindi films. Here is the song….

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 76# Memories of the Seventies – Composer Rajesh Roshan #
————————————————————————————————–———————-

Welcome all and wishing all a very Happy New Year 2019!!!

May this New Year bring us all peace, prosperity, good health, and growth of our country in all areas which are concerned with the ‘common man’ and which helps to improve the ‘quality of life’ and ‘quality of living’ for the people of this country.

Within few months general elections for the parliament will also be held and people will get a chance to vote for their ‘fate’ and ‘fate’ of the country.

Let ‘positivity’ prevails and let the ‘truth’ triumphs over ‘misleading negativity’ and ‘social evils’ that are still a ‘threat’ for the ‘unity’ and ‘overall development’ of this country.

***

On the beginning of every year I always think that I should share a song which has celebration, a message in it and it should be motivational and/or inspirational too. And the better if it is a group song or having ‘chorus singing’ in it, to give it a sense of ‘collective spirit’ and ‘team spirit’ 🙂

I think the song I am presenting today serves this purpose I am looking for and it also motivates for ‘hard work’ (mehnat) to fulfil the dreams of individual and for the betterment of the society overall.

And the other reason for this article once again is ‘nostalgia’ and ‘songs that brings back memories’ …

It was not suddenly that the song came to my mind. It so happened that one day while I was travelling from my Camp place to work place and just give a look at the Sun which was shining brightly in the morning.

(Normally when I do that, giving a look at the Sun or staring it a while, the first thing coming to my mind is Kapil Dev 🙂 )

But that day when I try to stare at the Sun more, I break into singing these lines … ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’ … yes there is song which I had heard in my childhood, but another moment I confused it with ‘oonchi oonchi baaton se kisi ka pet bharta nahin’, but corrected myself that that the two were different songs.

Somewhere the tune of both of these songs appear to be connected because both songs are composed by the same music director Rajesh Roshan.
However, I had forgotten the name of the movie of this song ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’.

So, I checked about the song and also checked on the blog if it was already covered.
Luckily it was not and thus this opportunity for me to present it here on the blog.

This song is from the 1978 movie ‘Muqqaddar’!!!

Earlier I had planned to send this article during the festival of Diwali, however I could not send it then …

***
When I was still finishing this article, I got to listen the last episode of ‘2018’ of our Primer Minister’s ‘Man Ki Baat’ and also became aware of the recent happenings of the All India DGP/IGP Conference and the awards for ‘National Unity’. Then the PM also highlighted about the many achievements in Sports by India and I when he narrated about a twenty-year-old cyclist and the feat she achieved I real felt very proud about it and was stunned to know that she cycled almost 300 kms every day to complete world tour in 159 days (and to become the ‘first Asian’ to do so) …

At the same time, I was very sad to read a news about a ‘fact check’ for PM’s waiving a train – whether he was ‘waiving an empty train’, which was on its first journey from the newly inaugurated of ‘Bogibeel Bridge’.

This news proves how low we have fallen down in our ‘socio-political’ ‘ethics and morality’. And I am not taking side of any parties involved in this. Even this thought of raising doubt at such an event at this level is very disappointing and it is a sad comment on our day to day affairs where other serious issues are being mocked by peoples having their ‘own selfish motives’.

Let us wish that ‘false propaganda’ and ‘false allegations’ not take over the real concerning issues of our country and let people use the social media with maturity.

Well ‘neki aur badi ki ladaayi jabse duniya bani hai tabse se chali aa rahi hain, agar buraayi na ho to koi achchaayi ko na poochhe, oonchaai ko samajhne ke liye hamehsa nichhayi ko samajhna chaahiye’

And between this ‘neki and badi’ is our Police force who safeguards us and safeguards our Nation in turn from the various ‘crimes’ in our society … I salute to them all and hope they keep up the good work rising above ‘caste, creed, religion, and beliefs’, in the interest of ‘National Unity’ forever …

Our today’s movie – ‘Muqaddar-1978’ is ‘DEDICATED TO, THE TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR SOLDIERS! THE UNSUNG HEROES! THE POLICE!!

And the dialogues mentioned above are not mine … Abdul Bhai (Yunus Parvez) is saying this to Inspector Vijay Saxena (Sanjeev Kumar) in our today’s movie …

Abdul Bhai runs a ‘road side dhaba’ and Inspector Vijay is his daily customer, and when Abdul Bhai suggests Vijay that he should get married so that he doesn’t have to worry about his food …

‘meri shaadi to us din ho gayi thhi jis din main police mein bharti huaa thha’
‘Chori dakaiti murder ye sab ek wafaadaar biwi ki tarah hamesha mere saath lage rehte hai…
‘Aisaa lagta hai Abdul Bhai is duniya se achchhe aadmi uthh gaye hain’

(Sanjeev Kumar at his best and the dialogues of this movie also, I think, very nice, I thought it was Kader Khan, but no, they are by Dr. Balkrishna Mauj)

Meanwhile as Inspector is taking his dinner a ‘bhikhari budhhiya’ comes and ask for ‘kuchh khilaa do’, Vijay asks Abdul Bhai’s assistant to give her food and he will pay for it …
‘main gareeb ki madad karne ke khilaaf nahin hoon Vijay Bhai, lekin kisika haath paaon salaamat ho to use bheekh dena use kaamchor banaana hai’ … (Abdul Bhai’s sincere thoughts …)

‘Abdul Bhai aadmi ka sabse badaa dushman uska pet hai, agar wo bhara rahe to thhik hai, agar khali ho jaaye to dimaag se jhagdaa karta, aur phir kuchh karta hai jise ham pasand nahin karte’ (Inspector Vijay’s statement on reality (fact check? 😊 )

As the Bhikhari Buddhiya is crossing the road a car hits her and run away … Inspector Vijay follows the car, and as usual taking ‘Kaanoon’ in his hands ‘beats the ‘badmaash(s)’ … but then he has to face his senior – played by Jairaj – and his ‘quintessential’ questions (which are valid even today?)

‘jis buddhiya ki khaatir tumne ye sab kuchh kiya hai wo ab bhi maje se bheekh maang rahi hai, aur jinhe jail mein hona chaahiye thha wo asptaal mein pade hain’
‘Police force ko tumne apne haathon ki taaqat aajmaane ka jariyaa samjha hai’(Jairaj)

Sir un logon ne mujhe rishwat dene ki koshish ki hai, samajhte thhe Police ko kharida ja saktaa hai, is tauheen se mera khoon khaul utthaa’

Tumne unhe wahin sazaa dene ki koshish …, Ye dekho aaj ke akhbaar, ‘police maarpit ke liye hai ya rokne ke liye’, Governer, Mayor na jaane kitne phone aa chuke hain,
‘wo sab chaahte hai ke tumhaare khilaaf action liyaa jaaye’

Lekin Sir mujhe unse koi jaati dushmani nahin thhi

Jaati dushmani mujhe bhi tumse nahin hai …

Main tumhe dhaaravi ke ilaake mein transfer karta hoon, Jahaan kuchh sakht kisam ke mujrim active hai … tumhe apni taaqat aazmaane ka poora poora mauqa milega’ Ya to tumhaari sakhti se sudhar jaayenge, ya to wo log tumhe apne aap par kaabu rakhna sikha denge

So, our Inspector is now in Dharavi, and he already has a sincere and dedicated assistant there – Patil (Bharat Kapoor) … who eventually sacrifices his life since he has been asked that ‘is mujrim pe goli mat chalana’ … but mujrim fires on him …

In Dharavi we have Parishit Sahni as a ‘labour leader’ working in a ‘kapada mill’ of Amjad Khan who is also interested in ‘smuggling’ and to become the ‘wealthiest smuggler’ …
Amjad Khan has a sister – played by Rekha – who is interested in social work and has a soft corner towards labors in the ‘basti’ and Ramu Dada is there in the form of Shashi Kapoor who is a ‘spoiled’ younger brother of Parishit Sahni.
Vidya Sinha plays wife of Parishit Sahni, Shashi’s Bhabhi and Rekha’s friend. Paintal is Shashi’s lieutenant and accompanies him whenever he is driving truck and enjoying ‘mujaras’ after the day’s hard work …

Sanjeev Kumar after reaching Dharavi destroys many ‘daaru and matke ka addaas’ and declares to the goons …
“Aaj se jurm ki wo tehniyaa kat gayin hain, jinpe baithhke tum manmaani kiya karte thhe”

Ramu Dada is still not co-operating Inspector Vijay until he realises the real game of the Smugglers …
Vijay is hopeful of rehabilitating Ramu Dada and reform him to the ‘regular stream’ of ‘good people’ …

But how does it happen finally is after the today’s song and I would like the readers interest intact to watch this movie so not going in further details of this movie here … 🙂

Since the beginning of the movie many are waiting for ‘Dushehra’ festival, like Amjad Khan declares bonus to workers as he wants them to work on ‘Dushehre ki Chhutti’ and he can in hide of it arrange ‘smugglers meet’ so that no one doubts …

***
A beggar (Chandu) – deaf and dumb – always asking for money from Amar Babu (Parikshit Sahni), on his advice has given up begging and from the money given by Amar Babu is now making pictures of ‘Ganesh, Sai Baba’, and ‘Shri Ram’ made by Rangoli on the road side …

***

Peoples are celebrating ‘Dushehra’ now and that is where the today’s song happens …

‘The evil -Raavana’s effigy is set with its ten faces of ‘evils’ and Parikshit Sahni, Rekha, Vidya Sinha with the labors in the basti starts celebrating with this song and Shashi Kapoor joins in between ( coming back from his tour to Goa) , and at the end of the celebrations as the Ravana’s effigy is set to fire by the arrows of Parikshit and Shashi Kapoor, enters our Inspector Vijay Saxena – Sanjeev Kumar – for checking of the ‘truck’ driven by Shashi from Goa with smuggled items 😊

***

Blog Day : 3781 Post No. : 14761

I in this blog often talk about “natural” landmarks and “artificial” landmarks for the blog. “Natutral” landmaks for the blog are those that are intuitive, viz. century of songs in the blog, and later century of songs in the blog for an artist, a contributor etc.

Later, when we began to keep track of blog related statistics, we became aware when a duo of singers completed their century of duet songs, or the blog itself completed a century (or its multiple) of days.

Many of these “artificial” (more accurately “derived” or “secondary”) landmarks went unnoticed in the early days of the blog. For instance, we completed several hundred days and also thousand days in the blog but we remain blissfully unaware. In fact, the level of blissful unawareness was such that we did not even noticed it when the blog completed one year of its existence on 19 july 2009. 🙂

We have come a long way since.

While many of these landmarks events have to be created by effort, there are some landmarks that happen on their own. Time related landmarks, viz hundreds of days or thousands of days get achieved with time.

Likewise, number of visitors in the blog also happen with time, though that is dependent on factors like ability of the blog to attract visitors.

This blog had a humble beginning on 19 july 2008. During its early days, it attracted less than 100 visitors daily. There were only 406 visitors for the blog during july 2008, the month when this blog started.

I regarded it as a “landmark” occasion when the blog clocked more than one hundred visits for the first time. It was on 16 august 2008, the day of Rakhi festival, when I covered the iconic Rakhi song Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana .

The blog averaged 31 visitors a day in july 2008 and 72 visitors a day in august 2008 before breaking into the three figure region with 276 visitors per day during september 2008. 23 january 2009 was the first day when this blog received more than one thousand visitors in a day. 1145 visitors arrived on the blog on that day. The blog reached four figure a day mark for the first time during february 2009 with 1069 visitors daily. It was in june 2011 that the 2000 mark was breached for the first time. An average of 2226 visitors visited daily during this month. It took only two more months to reach the 3000 visitors a day mark. August 2011 saw 3109 visitors daily in the blog. The next peak arrived in october 2011. It was not 4000 mark or 5000 mark or even 6000 mark, rather an average of 7224 visiors per day that was achieved in this month ! On one particular day, viz 19 october 2011, as many as 10630 visitors arrived at the site !

It was too good to last though. By now we have settled at an average of over 3000 visitors daily.

In the process, the blog recorded its first one million visits on 25 october 2010, after 829 days. The subsequent million visits have come rather more quickly, as can be expected. The third millionth mark was reached the fastest- in just 152 days. Now a days, it is taking around 300 odd days (nearly ten months ) to reach one million visitos mark.

The blog clocked 10 million visits on 14 january 2018 at around 22:30 IST. The 11th million visitor was clocked on 22 november 2018 at around the same time.

Here is the summary of the eleven million visitors in the blog so far:-

Number of Visitors Date when achieved Blog day days taken for the million visits
1 million 25-Oct-10 829 days 829
2 millions 07-Nov-11 1207 days 378
3 millions 30-Apr-12 1359 days 152
4 millions 10-Dec-12 1606 days 247
5 millions 29-Oct-13 1929 days 323
6 millions 12-Oct-14 2277 days 348
7 millions 04-Jul-15 2542 days 265
8 millions 20-Apr-16 2833 days 291
9 millions 24-Feb-17 3144 days 311
10 millions 14-Jan-18 3466 days 332
11 millions 22-Nov-18 3779 days 313

I was wondering what song to discuss on the occasion. Finally I zeroed in on a joyous song from “Kaala Pathhar”(1979). This song is sung by Rafi, Lata, S K Mahan, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The picturisation shows almost the entire star cast (this was a multi starrer movie !) – viz Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh, Parveen Babi etc.

The video version of this song from “Kaala Patthar”(1979) is nearly six minutes long. But the audio version is even longer (nearly eight minutes long). I have provided both version of the some here.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement. It goes without saying that it was the support and encouragement of music lovers that helped the blog achieve this impressive number of visits from music lovers. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue on its merry ways with many more landmarks to achieve enroute.

Blog Day : 3778 Post No. : 14758

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Once upon a not-so-long a time ago the anniversary page on our blog said that Helen – the dancing diva – celebrates her birthday on 21st October and I had sent this song – “Lovelina, Aa Gaya Main“, from ‘Agent Vinod’ (1977) for the occasion. Then over the years we got enlightened that her birthdate was 21st November. And as I sit to write this, further enlightenment strikes – she turns 80 today!!!! WOW!!! And she has been entertaining us since she was 13, having appeared in ‘Awaara’ in 1951 – that is 67 years in public eye. Of course, the last time I saw her in front of the camera was on satellite television when she appeared on the chat show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ along with another favourite of mine – Asha Parekh. And so far, the last film that she has appeared in is ‘Heroine’ (2012) which is directed by Madhur Bhandarkar and starred Kareena Kapoor in the main lead. In there she portrays the character of a film artiste who is past her prime and is forgotten by the industry.

But the truth is Helen is not a forgotten has-been as far as the industry and her fans are concerned. She is still remembered fondly whenever we hear songs that she had performed to. Her sprightly steps, her outfits which were never garish even when there were sequins and feathers stuck on them, her luxuriant hair done up in various styles – are somethings which no other dancer or actress has ever tried to copy. She was never called a plain item girl, she was always the supporting actress who had some substance to her role even if it was two or three songs, with a few emotional scenes and there were films she was the second heroine pining for the hero and would give up her love or life in the climax so that the lead pair could live HAPPILY EVER AFTER. She has had a HAPPILY EVER AFTER life personally too even though she is her husbands’ (Salim Khan) second wife, theirs is a one big happy family and all of her step children have bonded closely with her. She has an adopted daughter who was given a grand wedding in 2014 and is now a grandma to that girl’s child. Her family is growing and hope her happiness grows too.

‘Ram Balram’ is a 1980 movie produced by Tito and directed by Vijay Anand. The movie was an average success at the box office. It brought Jai (Amitabh) and Veeru (Dharmendra) together after a gap of five years – five years after the super successful ‘Sholay’ (1975). ‘Ram Balram’ was the story of two ‘chachere bhais’ (cousins) who have a score to settle with Ajit – another of their chacha – who is responsible for all the calamities that struck their family. There is also a nautch girl – Tarabai (Helen) – who has some axe to grind against Ajit. As the movie moves to the climax, we have the brothers and Tarabai reaching their goals but in the melee Tarabai dies but not before seeing her daughter (Zeenat Aman) happy and in love with Ram (Dharmendra). Today’s song is a typical ‘trying to distract the villains’ henchmen’. The song is sung by Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Dilraj Kaur. It has both Zeenat Aman and Helen dressed in sarees (unusual for them) dancing a typical Dharmendra dance. The song was written by Anand Bakshi.

I had been reserving this song for a rainy day- for a time when I write a last-minute post. And so here it is to wish both Zeenat Aman (had her birthday on 19th– turned 67) and Helen a very happy birthday.

 

Song – Balram Ne Bahut Samjhaaya Par Ram Ne Dhoka Khaaya (Ram Balram) (1980) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Dilraj Kaur, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Asha Bhosle + Dilraj Kaur
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle + Dilraj Kaur

Lyrics

balram ne bahut samjhaaya
balram ne bahut samjhaaya
par ram ne dhokha khaya
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
jo hona tha ho gaya
jo hona hai ho jaaye  
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

hum pinjre ke panchhi
pinjre ke panchhi
hum pinjare ke panchhi
hum se kitni door bahaarein
door bahaarein
aao mil kar sochen
mil kar sochen
aao mil kar sochen
apni bigdi aap sawaarein
teri saari baatein jaisi lakdi ki talwaarein
lakdi ki talwaarein
lakdi ki talwaar to
talwaar to
mushkil mein kaam na aaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

ho gore mukh pe zulf ye kali
naagan si lehraaye
naagan se rehna door sapere
tujhe das na jaaye
jaan hatheli par jo rakhe
apne pas wo aaye
aane wale aa gaye
aa gaye
dil dhadke haye haye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

jab tak ram ki sena aaye
gaate raho ye gaana
oommm ommmm
jab tak ram ki sena aaye
gaate raho ye gaana
band hai saare darwaaze
har rasta hai anjaana
arre mushkil hai iss rawan ki lanka se bach ke jaana
arre mushkil hai iss rawan ki lanka se bach ke jaana
vinti hai hanuman se
hanuman se
lanka mein aag lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
jo hona tha ho gaya
jo hona hai ho jaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye
ab to ram hi jaan bachaaye
beda paar lagaaye

बलराम ने बहुत समझाया
बलराम ने बहुत समझाया
पर राम ने धोखा खाया
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
जो होना था हो गया
जो होना है हो जाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

हम पिंजरे के पंछी
पिंजरे के पंछी
हम पिंजरे के पंछी
हमसे कितनी दूर बहारें
दूर बहारें
आओ मिल कर सोचें
मिल कर सोचें
आओ मिल कर सोचें
अपनी बिगड़ी आप संवारें
तेरी सारी बातें जैसे लकड़ी की तलवारें
लकड़ी की तलवारें
लकड़ी की तलवार तो
तलवार तो
मुश्किल में काम ना आए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

हो गोरे मुख पे जुल्फ ये काली
नागन सी लहराए
नागन से रहना दूर सपेरे
तुझे डस ना जाये
जान हथेली पर जो रखे
अपने पास वो आए
आने वाले आ गए
आ गए
दिल धड़के हाए हाए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

जब तक राम की सेना आए
गाते रहो ये गाना
ओमम्ममम ओमम्ममम
जब तक राम की सेना आए
गाते रहो ये गाना
बंद हैं सारे दरवाज़े
हर रस्ता है अंजाना
अरे मुश्किल है इस रावण की लंका से बच के जाना
अरे मुश्किल है इस रावण की लंका से बच के जाना
विनती है हनुमान से
हनुमान से
लंका में आग लगाए
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
जो होना था हो गया
जो होना है हो जाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये
अब तो राम ही जान बचाए
बेड़ा पार लगाये

Blog Day : 3778 Post No. : 14757

‘Dhongee’ (censor certificate 23-12-1976), was a movie directed by Ashok Roy and produced by Kant Kumar productions. It seems to have had a delayed release (Wikipedia says it was released 4th May 1979). It has a starcast of Randhir Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Asrani, Sujit Kumar, Farida Jalal, Iftikhar, and Premnath. Rakesh Roshan had a friendly appearance. The lyricist to this movie was Anand Bakshi and music director was Rahul Dev Burman. The movie had five songs and Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar were the playback singers. One song of this film – “Haaye Re Haaye Tera Ghunghta” – has been posted earlier, as a contribution by Pamir Harvey where a brief outline of the movie is provided. This song is popular to this day. I remember that sometime in the late 90s or early 2000 there was a remix version to this song which triggered the memory of this song. As I sat to write this post I discovered that there has been another version of this song which has been used in a recent movie titled ‘Paisa Vasool’ (2004) – I don’t know anything about this recent movie.

Continuing after seeing the movie 🙂

So, ‘Dhongee’ is the usual masaala stuff, with a brother (Randhir Kapoor) and sister (Farida Jalal) loving and helping each other with wooing their prospective fathers-in-laws (Raj Mehra and Satyen Kappu). The brother’s aim is to fulfil his ‘dead’ father’s promise to the groom’s father and see that his sister lives a happy married life. On the way to fulfilling this he meets with an accident and ‘dies’. The insurance amount that his sister gets post the brother’s death is used by his fiancée (Neetu Singh) and her father to get the sister married. This is one part of the movie. But it is not even ‘interval time’ in the movie. Now begins the tale. The brother has actually survived the accident, has been unconscious for about 2 months, tended by a Nepali Gurkha – typically named Bahadur; recovers just in time to remember his sister’s wedding date; rushes home to witness the wedding without being seen by anyone. Now he is guilt-ridden that he has cheated the insurance company and is ready to do any activity that will earn him the money to repay the insurance. Here Bahadur steps in, suggests a name and location change & sends him to Nepal. Randhir Kapoor (Anand) is intrigued that random people around Kathmandu recognise him and escort him to a palace. After a few scenes that show the goings-on in the palace it is revealed that the palace is the headquarters for printing fake notes, belongs to Bahadur alias John and Anand has been cleverly sweet-talked into standing-in for the actual John (Premnath – it was the period when he used to play the BADMAN). Additionally, it is also revealed that the ‘dead’ father is a captive in the palace; the fiancée reaches Kathmandu (on duty, being an air-hostess); sees Anand; goes back; reports to the sister and then the whole family comes to help and rescue the father and brother and finish the movie. The songs are spread through the movie with a mandatory dance with the villain – Premnath is made to sing and dance.

Remembering Premnath today on his birth anniversary, he would have been 92. He was already the cute roly-poly fisherman – Braganza (‘Bobby’, 1973)- when I first became aware of the actor. And through the 70s he was Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh (‘Johnny Mera Naam’, 1970) Khan Badshah (‘Shor’, 1972), Dharmdas ‘Dharmatma‘ (‘Dharmatma’, 1975), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’, 1976), Sir Juda (‘Karz’, 1980) etc. I don’t remember having seen any of his movies where he had played a hero. I remember my father was a fan of the songs pictured on him in Raj Kapoor’s ‘Barsaat’ (1949) – “Patli Kamar Hai Tirchhi Nazar Hai“; “Main Gareebon Ka Dil Hoon Watan Ki Zabaan” from ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955) and “Main Raahi Bhatakne Waala Hoon” from ‘Baadal’ (1951). I recently discovered Vodafone Play – an app offered by Vodafone – which has a section dedicated to old movies, and I discovered ‘Saaqi’ (1952) – an interesting Arabian Nights type fantasy film where he co-starred with Madhubala.

Today’s song has Premnath sharing screen space with Randhir Kapoor (his nephew – ‘bhaanja’, in real life) and Neetu Singh, and shaking a leg outside the Kathmandu temple. I think this was a popular song in the past. Amit Kumar is the playback for Premnath.

Song – Rangon Ki Chhaaon Dhoop Mein (Dhongee) (1976) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – RD Burman

Blog Day : 3758 Post No. : 14728

Happy November to Atuldom

Start of the winters. Bangalore has suddenly turned colder post Navaratri and gearing up for the next most important festival in India – Deepawali.

‘Saajan Bina Suhaagan’ – released in 1978 – was produced and directed by Saawan Kumar Tak. The songs were written by Indeevar and music was by Usha Khanna. When I had heard the songs of this movie I had imagined Usha Khanna to be a rather young person. It was much later I became enlightened that she was also the music director for another set of songs which I love to hear – songs from ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ (1959). But that is not the purpose of this post.

The reason for this post is the small girl in the song who turns a year older today. She must have been all of 11 or 12 at the time of this movie. Movies used to take close to a year or two to complete those days not like present times when we hear of start to finish schedules and the movie quickly reaching the finish-line i.e. the cinema theatre. There were many reasons for the movies of the past taking time to complete and many of those reasons are not there nowadays. I don’t intend to go into the technique changes that film making has undergone.

So, the little girl of the song – Bulbul (Padmini Kolhapure) – is the pet of her parents and sisters. She is in love with her piano and loves to sing. And all is well in paradise till the father (Shreeram Lagoo) finds he is terribly ill and decides to go away from the family to undergo treatment. The mother (Nutan) also is aware of this but keeps it a secret from her daughters. Most of the movie is devoted to showing how the mother copes with the situation and how she has to also shield her daughter Bulbul from any traumatic news as she (Bulbul) too has a congenital heart problem- “hole in the heart” as the movie says. Further problems arise when one hospital ward attenant (TP Jain) starts blackmailing the mother about revealing all secrets to the children. The movie moves on to show how Nutan copes with a sick Bulbul, marriage of the elder daughter Basanti (Radhika Bartake) and a murder charge – Nutan murders TP Jain. So that is a fair idea about the movie.

Today’s song has Barkha (Aarthi Chopra) and Bulbul (Padmini) bullying their “hone waale Jeeja ji” (Vinod Mehra) who is sporting enough to agree to all the pre-wedding conditions that the saalis lay out. Suresh Wadkar, Anuradha Paudwal (who has turned 64 a few days back) and Dilraj Kaur are the playback singers.

So, the little Bulbul – Padmini Kolhapure – is a grown up lady now. She has a large number of movies in her repertoire where she has been a co-actor to most of stalwarts of Bollywood. She has been around since 1974, took a brief sabbatical after her son was born and returned to movies and television; this time playing roles of mother etc. to actors like Shahid Kapoor. And to think she is only as old as the Khans who are still playing the male lead.

Here is wishing the little Padmini a very Happy Birthday.

 

Song – Jeeja Ji Jeeja Ji Hone Waale Jija ji (Sajaan Bina Suhaagan) (1978) Singer – Anuradha Paudwal, Dilraj Kaur, Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Usha Khanna
Anuradha Paudwal + Dilraj Kaur

chhathi shart to suniye
didi ki taarif mein hamesha
nayi kavita roz sunaoge

tulsi ke dohe suna doonga
saatvin ye shart hai hamaari
ki didi bachchee nahin khilayegi
arre didi ko kasht
na doonga kabhi
bachchon ko khud hi sambhaaloonga

meri bhi ek shart suno ji
are bas, bas, bas
shaadi zara honey to do
jo bhi kahogi main maanoonga

Hullo to Atuldom

October was slightly busier than normal. I have missed a few birthdays -dates which I always try to write for. I missed Kishore Kumar’s anniversary, and birthdays of Hema Malini, Ashok Kumar, Vinod Khanna, Smita Patil, Shammi Kapoor and a few for which I had made mental notes for – Sunny Deol, Kadar Khan etc. But unless I write oops! type, mental notes remain in the mind. And even mere typing is not enough I should send it as email too, technology has not yet advanced to the level that one person can read another’s thoughts and convert it into a post. Thank god that there is a small amount of privacy left in these modern technological times.

But my post today (26 october 2018) is not to cry about technology. Today is one of those dates in October which I don’t like to miss; at least for the last 3 years.

It is important for me that I write at least a few words to wish this dear friend of ours on his birthday. I may not be as eloquent as Atulji was in this post of his last year, or as emotional as Archanaji was in this post. I have not known our today’s birthday boy for as long as Pamir Harvey but I agree to everything that he had written in this post and have expressed it a few times in this last few years. He is among those friends with whom there has been a comfort level wherein I just message him or pick up the phone and talk for long without any particular topic (sometimes we do get topical).

As he has said last year in one of his comments and I quote “this blog might have started as a repository for HFM, but over the years, it has spawned close friendships amongst some of us, co-travellers.”

Here is wishing this co-traveller, friend, and fellow Atulite- Rajaji “A very very Happy birthday”. May we see more of you on the blog. And don’t mind if you can’t feed us with your essays even your twit-style writing is thought provoking.

The song with this post is from a rather new movie (by the standards of the blog) considering it released on 5th November, 1999. It was directed by Eeshwar Nivas, for a story by Ram Gopal Verma. The movie tried to portray the criminal-politician nexus using Bihar as the backdrop and its effect on the life of an honest police officer. The movie starred Manoj Bajpai and Sayaji Shinde on the two sides of the law. It won a National Award for best feature film, and represented India at various international film festivals. The songs were penned by Sameer and Amar Akbar Anthony were the music directors. OOPS, Sorry! I mean Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy (I have Shankar Mahadevan call the trio as Amar- Akbar- Anthony in one of his interviews).

Today’s song is sung by Baby Anagha, Kavita Krishnamurthy, and Shankar Mahadevan. It is a typical scene-in-a-middle class home in the morning before the father prepares to leave for work. A very familial situation where Raveena Tandon plays the homemaker – one of the many deglamourized roles she played.

Oh, it is also Raveena Tandon’s birthday today. Let us wish Raveena a long and healthy life and enjoy her in this song.


Song-Mere papa ka gussa (Shool)(1999) Singers-Baby Anagha, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shankar Mahadewan, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Shankar Ehsan Loy

Lyrics

mere papa ka gussa
tam tadam

ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai

jaldi savere main uthti hoon

jaldi savere main uthti hoon

socho socho

inko uthaake
chaai banaake doon main
kapde saare dhoti hoon
main naashta deti hoon
poore ghar ka bojh
apne sar pe main

tumhe bhi main sambhaaloon
inhe bhi main sambhaaloon
kaise bolo,
ho bolo bolo
ayya tere papa ko ghussa jab aata hai

mere papa ka ghussa
tam tadam

main hoon police mein
choron ka peechha
din bhar main karta hoon
aage peechhe
ae daudoon bhaagoon
main hoon police mein
choron ka peechha
din bhar main karta hoon
aage peechhe
ae daudoon bhaagoon
meri majboori koi nahin samjhe yahaan

arre main bhi ghar mein cockroach aur choohon se ladhti hoon
saara din inke main peechhe padti hoon
tum bhi the mere pichhe
lekin shaadi se pehle
main hoon main hoon
boss ghar ki

ayya mere papa ko gussa jab aata hai
dar ke maare tv aur kapaat hil jaata hai
papa ka ghussa kaisa
hai darasingh jaisa

dekho dekho

dekho dekho
haan dekho dekho
mere papa ka gussa

Happy Dussehra Atulites

Today’s song is a modern version of the Ram- Raavan story. It is from the 2001 supernatural thriller “Aks” produced by Amitabh Bachchan and Jhamu Sughand. Director was Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. The movie had a star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Nandita Das, Manoj Bajpai and Amol Palekar in a special appearance. The songs were written by Gulzar and Anu Malik was the music director. Today’s song is in the voices of Amitabh Bachchan, Nandita Das and Kavita Mundra.

I like the touches of modernism that Gulzar has written into the song:
Lanka- Bharat baant diya hai.
Communication systems have changed- the song mentions phone lines are obsolete and emails were in use. (2018 even emails are rare)
And finally- jab tak ram hai raavan rahega (a real mirror to the times we are in)

Jai Bolo Shree Ram Ki.
Jai Maa Durge. Jai Mata Di.

This song from the film Suhaag  (1979) has been waiting in my drafts for a long time now. It is a group song based on Punjabi folk and a popular one at that.

It so happened that when I saw Peevesie’s Mom’s post yesterday on Rekha’s birthday, got an idea in the mind to do a post for Amitabh & Rekhas birthday together with a song of both of them.  There are a lot of songs featuring these two as a couple yet to be posted in the blog.

Somehow I  thought of the song “Naam Re. . . Sabse Bada Tera Naam, O Sheronwaali” from Suhaag, as a trio celebration of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha’s birthdays plus Navratri.  But when I looked up the movie in the list, this song is already posted by Peevesie’s Mom in 2016. So that choice got ruled out.

Further yesterday was blue day for Navratri, there was a photo session of all ladies in the office, which is the norm all over nowadays in Mumbai offices at least. A colleague made a collage of those photos and put it on the status of the office ladies whatsapp group. It so happened she had mistakenly included one group photograph from another office.

When I pointed it out to her, she said “galti se ho gaya re. . .” . I asked my husband if there was a song with the word ‘galti‘ , he said there was no such song but there is a song with the word ‘bhool‘,  e.g. “Hum Se Bhool Ho Gayee Hum Ka Maafi Dai Do” (‘Ram Balram’, 1980). I remembered the song “Hum Se Ka Bhool Hui Jo Ye Sazaa Hum Ko Mili” (‘Janta Hawaldar’, 1979). But since the song from ‘Ram Balram’ has both Rekha & Amitabh I shared the link to that song in the group. I am appreciated for thinking of a song at the drop of a hat, since we have a Hindi film song for all moments and occasions. I have reliable help in this endeavor, what with my husband being a filmy buff, YouTube etc. 🙂

So back to the song – today is yellow day and in this song at least Parveen Babi can be seen in full yellow, sunny splendour. And it has both Rafi  & Asha Singing for Amitabh & Rekha.  Asha Bhosle in giving playback to Parveen Babi too and Shailendra Singh is doing the honours for Shashi Kapoor. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist for this song composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Amitabh Bachchan is in disguise in this song to hide his identity from friend Shashi Kapoor, which is uncovered at the end of the song by Shashi Kapoor. Overall a colourful and enjoyable song to suit a celebratory occasion.

This bhangra song is filmed in the old Blighty’s Hyde Park – London, if I am not mistaken.

I was told by my mother that my father was very fond of Hindi films. He was a fan of V Shantaram and Shanta Apte. He would visit Mangalore (now Mangaluru) just to watch a newly released Hindi film. This was in early 40s, when travelling from my native place (Mulki) to Mangaluru – about 25 kms of distance – was itself an adventure. It used to take almost the whole day. So to watch a film in a theatre in Mangaluru, it was necessary to stay overnight in the city.

Our family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) in around Diwali time in 1951 as my father had got a job in the city. On week days, he was busy with his office work. On Sundays, he would often visit the Fort area where some of his friends from the native place had also shifted. They were part of his amateur musical drama troop in the native place where my father was associated as a music composer. So almost on all Sundays, my father would be with his friends for rehearsal of songs for the musical plays in Konkani and Kannada languages which would be staged during some kind of festivities. So I had no occasion to see films with my parents during 1952-53.

Unfortunately, in July 1954, my father passed away at the age of 42 after a brief period of illness. So the entire responsibility for sustenance of the family fell on my mother. Spending money on watching the films in theatres was the least priority. But as a rule, my mother allowed us to see one film a year in the theatre. As a result, I remember the names of most of the films which I watched during 1954-64.

As far as my memory goes, the first Hindi film which I watched in a local theatre was ‘Samaaj’ (1954). I do not remember anything about the film except that I saw a big poster of the film as we entered the theatre premises. The next was ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955) which I saw in a local but different theatre. Again I do not remember much of the film except the Zippy, the ape and a song apni chhaaya mein bhagwan bithha le mujhe, sung on the screen by Dilip Kumar. I still remember that during the show, bed bugs in the theatre bothered us a lot.

1956 was a bonus year for me as I got opportunity to see two films – ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956) and ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955). I do not remember as to who took us for ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956). I remember most part of the film as well as some songs. I was impressed with Kishore Kumar’s acting and his song mera naam abdul rahman. But today, this would be my least preferred song compared to all other songs in the film. This was the film in which I started believing that Ashok Kumar was a drunkard in his ‘real life’ because of his drunkard’s acting in the film.

‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955) was my first film which I saw in a theatre located in the city. My maternal uncle has taken me for this film at Metro theatre (Dhobi Talaao) where it had run for more than a year. We had gone for 3.00 – 6.00 pm show. It gave me a great feeling watching my first colour film.

When the show was over at 6.00 pm, we came out of the theatre and found that all the roads were deserted. There were many policemen on the roads. One policeman told my uncle that a curfew has been clamped in this area. We were permitted to walk on the left footpath of the road leading to VT (Chhtrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus) railway station. We came to know later that some people had died in a police firing on a big morcha of Sanyukta Maharashtra Samiti which was demanding a separate Maharashtra State.

My cousin (who was about 15 years elder to me) had got a good job in Mumbai. One day, he told us that he would sponsor to take our entire family as well as a few other relatives to a magnificent theatre to watch a film. The theatre was Liberty and the film was ‘Champakali’ (1957). It was really a magnificent theatre compared to all other theatres I had visited earlier. There was wall to wall carpet probably laid on some soft material as we felt that we were walking on foam mattresses. I do not recall much about the film except one song, chhup gaya koi re door se pukar ke.

I am not able to recall as to which films I saw in 1958 and 1959. Probably, I may not have got to see any film. By 1960, I, my brother and my two cousins had become the fan of Shankar-Jaikishan. Those days, we used to consider O P Nayyar as SJ’s ‘rival’. Now I feel that we ourselves had created this ‘rivalry’ in our mind. Those days, it was thought that the song, tin kanastar peet peet kar gala phaad kar chillaana composed by S-J was aimed at O P Nayyar and we all believed this to be true because it suited us being the fan of S-J. When I listened to this song recently, I felt that it was more of a general observation about copying western tunes with loud orchestration. In fact, this song can be treated as a satire on the current state of Hindi film music.

Anyway, 1960 our entire family went to see ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’ (1960) in a local theatre. I enjoyed not only the songs but the film itself. A couple of scenes got engraved in my mind while watching the film. First, I felt very sad about Meena Kumari’s predicament in the song, ajeeb daastaan hai ye. Second, it amused me when after the end of the dream sequence song, mera dil ab tera o sajna, Raj Kumar was holding the handle of the door of an ambulance and dancing as if he was holding the hand of Meena Kumari.

In 1961, it was ‘Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja’ (1961), again S-J film. We have gone to see this film mainly for its songs. I do not remember about the story of the film. In 1962, I and my younger brother had gone to stay with our cousins during our summer vacation by which time they had shifted to a new resident at Byculla. S-J was still our favourite. We got permission from our aunt to see ‘Aashiq’ (1962) which was running at Ganesh Talkies at Lalbaug. We travelled from Byculla to Lalbaug by tram. The queue for the current ticket (3.00 – 6.00 pm show) was long. We stood in the queue. As we came nearer to the ticket window with just about 10 persons ahead of us, the ‘House Full’ board was displayed. We were hugely disappointed.

After some discussion, we decided to stand in the queue for the next show (6.00 – 9.00 pm). While taking this decision, we were oblivious of the fact that our aunt will get worried if we did not reach home by evening. We watched the film and enjoyed the songs. When we returned home at around 9.30 pm, our cousins got a good dressing down from my aunt. She thought that it was a handiwork of her younger son whereas in reality, it was a collective decision.

I am not able to recall as to which film I saw in 1963. It is quite possible that there was no occasion for me to see any film. In 1964, I got an opportunity to see ‘Sangam’ (1964) with one of my relatives in a local theatre. Except for o mehbooba tere dil ke pass hai and dost dost na raha, all other songs sounded a shade lower in quality than what S-J had composed for ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). I also did not much enjoy watching the film.

By this time, I and my elder cousin had defected to Laxmikant-Pyarelal camp while my younger brother and younger cousin continued to be the fan of S-J. There used to a lot of musical discussion between us mainly on S-J versus L-P. Sometime it would reach a flashing point. In 1965, I had got a job. My elder cousin had shifted to Pune to complete his Engineering degree. With this, our L-P vs. S-J rivalry naturally came to an end.

‘Waqt’ (1965) was the first film which I saw from my own money as I had got a job. From 1965 and 1969, I had watched in the theatres one film almost every week-end (either afternoon show on Saturdays or Matinee show on Sundays). In Economics, there is a law of diminishing marginal utility. This law seemed to have applied to my week-end film watching. Over a period of time, I developed a diminishing interest in films and by 1972, I had almost given up visiting theatres for films. The reason could be that I had been seeing all types of films, many of them could be categorised as craps.

Since then, I visit theatres to watch only those films which my wife wished to see, which had good reviews and I have a liking for the subject of the film. In this process, now we end up watching on average 3-4 films in a year.

‘Raazi’ (2018) was the last film I and my wife saw in a multiplex sometime in May 2018. During the show, one of its songs overwhelmed me so much that it lingered in my mind for a long time. I felt that I should present this song as a part of the article. The song is ‘ungli pakad ke tune chalna sikhaaya thha na’ sung by Vibha Saraf, Harshdeep Kaur and Shankar Mahadeven.

This song takes me to the golden period of Hindi film music in terms of its composition, lyrics and picturisation .. Harshdeep Kaur’s soulful rendition of her part in the song brings out the emotional bond between a father and a daughter.

The song starts with a Kashmiri couplet which is a part of Kashmiri folk song of bidaai:

bae chhasay khanmaej koor
deu mey rukhsat myane bhaijaano

[I am your darling daughter. Come, it is time to bid farewell to me, o brother].

Music Directors, Shankar-Ehsan-Loy has used mostly Kashmiri musical instruments like rabab, dotara and esraj to give a feel of the song from the Kashmir valley.

This is the song which would make any father to shed tears after listening because of its soulful music and lyrics. After all, it has been written by Gulzar who must have had the same pain at the time of the marriage of his daughter, Meghna Gulzar, the director of the film.
