Hullo Atuldom

This post is thanks to the morning programs aired by Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) and Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati today.

The first song that I heard this morning was from the 1967 Bharat Bhushan starrer “Taqdeer”; a song from “Gateway Of India” (1957) was just over. And Jyoti Parmarji announced that the segment was a tribute to yesteryear actor Bharat Bhushan (14th June 1920- 27th January 1992).

The next segment played songs from “Thokar” (1953), Taxi 555 (1958), “Saaranga” (1960) etc; and Jyotiji said that the segment was remembering Sardar Malik (13th January 1930- 27th January 2006).

I am sure if I had listened further, I would have heard some lovely songs of Zia Sarhadi Sahab (1917- 27th January 1997). This youtube link will give us the songs played in that segment.

Then around 9.30 a.m. I switched on to Vividh Bharati and I landed on their “aaj ke fankaar” and I discovered that today is LOIN’s birth anniversary too.

So many yesteryear populars’ anniversaries. So I set out on my favourite activity- trying to find a movie or song featuring at least two of those who are being remebered today. And I had my EUREKAAA!!!! moment sometime back.

Today we are having a song sung by Mohd. Rafi, written by Madan Mohan (not the music director, please note) & Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and composed by Sardar Malik. It is from the movie “Maa Ke Aansoo” (1959). It was a movie which had Hamid Ali Khan, Nalini Jaywant, Neelam, Lalita Pawar, Agha, Ajit Kumar etc. Dhirubhai Desai was the director and more details about the movie can be had in this post Meri jholi ko bhar de of December 27th, 2011. Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has given a brief about the movie in the comments to the post.

I am sure that it is well-known that Hamid Ali Khan was popular as Ajit. He started as an extra in many of his initial films to feed himself. He changed his name to Ajit on the advise of Nanabhai Bhatt. and played the main protagonist in films till sometime in the 60s when he switched to playing character roles and was most sought after villain in movies of the late 60s and most of the 70s. His character in “Kalicharan” (1976) pompously called himself “LOIN” of course that was his way of pronouncing the word Lion; similarly his “Rabbert” for Robert, “Mona Darling” are all unforgettable.
He would have been 101 today.

Sardar Malik passed away this date in 2006. He was active in Hindi Films from late 1940s and gave music for nearly 600 songs. I could readily recollect all the songs that SLBC played this morning. I just thought I will mention here that his children and grand children are connected with the music industry as singers, music directors etc. I also feel like mentioning that Hasrat Jaipuri was his wife’s brother.

Today’s song in this series is from the movie ‘Jeewan Sukh’.

I guess this was an obscure movie of its time and it must have been forgotten easily. I could not find any video of this movie on internet and I think that this also seems to be unavailable as of now on internet.

“Jeewan Sukh-1973” was directed by Debu Sen for ‘Suman Productions’.

It had Dheeraj, Monica (New discovery), Nargis Banu, Anand Chaini, Nazeer Hussain, Dhumal, Asit Sen, Darshan, Niliman Pal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Praveen Pal, Mushtaq, Shirli, Bihari, Jhumru, Prakash Thapa, Hardeep, Dhananjay, Sanjana, Jankidas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

This movie has four songs written by three lyricists. Naqsh Lyallpuri had written two songs, and Janisar Akhtar and Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ had written one song each.

Music of this movie was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Do nigaahen teri, do nigaahen meri Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar

03 Hans le gaa le, jee le mere pyaare Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ Manna Dey

Today this movie ‘Jeewan Sukh-1973’ makes its debut on the blog with a song sung by Manna Dey.
Lyrics are are Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’, who, I guess, will also be making a debut on the blog as Lyrics writer.

Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

As mentioned above only audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs and other information about this movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Today’s song is from a Telugu Language film which was dubbed in Hindi and named as Jaisingh-1959.

Till 1947, Hindi films were made mostly in Bombay,Lahore,Calcutta, Kolhapur and Poona. Most studios were located in these cities. South Indian language films were made mainly in Madras and Bangla films were made in Calcutta and Dhaka. The Partition in 1947 changed the picture completely. Wholesale polarisation took place.Producers of Hindi films had to flee from Lahore,leaving everything behind them and some artistes from Bombay left for Pakistan. Thus, after Partition, the exclusive centre for production of Hindi films was only Bombay. By 1950 things settled in India and Pakistan Film Industry.

Telugu film producers shifted to Hyderabad,Kannada films to Bangalore and Malayalam to Kerala. Madras, however,still made films other than Tamil,like Telugu Hindi etc. But now it was only Remakes of successful Tamil films or dubbed films.The 50s saw many Hindi films dubbed from southern languages(Read Tamil/Telugu). Initially,they were Mythological, Fantasy or costume films. In the 60s,however, even social films were remade.

Film production in Madras is very methodical and professional.They make films as per plans and in planned time.For this reason,in the 60s to 80s many Hindi film actors volunteered to to make films in south.The producers in south too had their favourites. In the Music area, there were, Ravi, C.Ramchandra or Madan Mohan, for lyrics and story, Rajinder krishna and Pradeep, and preferred actors were Jeetendra, Rajendra Kumar, Sunil Dutt and Mehmood.

Though Polarisation took place in film production, the attraction to come to Bombay and work here continued. Artistes from various centres still came to Bombay.
The biggest contribution came from Bengal,in music,direction and acting areas.Artistes from South tried their hand with Hindi films,either by Remade or dubbed films. Thus the greatest south actors like Sivaji Ganeshan,M G Ramchandran ,N T Rama Rao, A.Nageshwar Rao, Jailalita, Janaki, Susheela, Bhanumathi, Prem Nazir of the older generation and Rajanikanth, Kamal Hasan and Chiranjeevi from the next Generation were seen in Hindi films. Only Dr.Rajkumar, the Kannada Superstar never worked in Hindi films. In fact,except for just 1 Telugu film, Shri Kalahasti Mahatmyam-1954, Dr.Rajkumar never worked in any other language film.

In the music department also, many composers like K.Narayan Rao, S.Rajeshwar Rao, C R Subramanyam, E Shankar, R Sudershanam, Ramesh Naidu, Adi Narayanrao, Vishwanath-Rammurthy,Lingappa etc worked in Hindi films.

There was one name from South,which was so famous,but it is surprising that he too gave music to Hindi Films.His name was GHANTASALA.

The major difficulty for southern artistes was speaking in Hindi. Due to this, they hesitated to work in Hindi films and instead, preferred dubbing their hit films in Hindi, released them on All India basis and hoped for becoming famous. Initially, in the period of the 50’s and 60’s decades, there was a spate of dubbed films, as well as some remade films in Hindi. Later on and now of course only hit films are remade in Hindi. The count of dubbed films has gone down considerably. These days, I find that even hit films of Hindi are also remade in southern languages.

The original Telugu film was Jaisimha-1955. It was dubbed in Hindi and released in 1959 as Jai Singh. The cast of the film was Waheeda Rehman, Anjali Devi, N.T.Rama Rao (known popularly as NTR ), S.V.Ranga Rao, Relangi, Gummadi, Kanta Rao Rajnala and others. Waheeda Rehman had acted in this film before coming to Bombay for Hindi films.

The Telugu film was released on the Dussehra day-21st Oct 1955 in Hyderabad.NTR was extremely popular and there was a huge rush on the first day itself.The music of Jayasimha,by T.V.Raju was excellent.There were 10 songs and they were sung by stalwarts like,Jikki,P.Susheela,Ghantasala,P.Leela,R.Balasaraswati Devi,K.Rani,M.S.Rao,P.Nageshwar Rao etc.

The Hindi version has only 8 songs and ALL songs have the same tunes as in Telugu.The Hindi film MD was Ramesh Naidu,ably assisted by S.L.Merchant. The singers were Lata, Geeta, Usha, Manna Dey and P.Susheela ( who has sung 44 songs in Hindi in 20 films). The story of the film was a routine for a Costume film, but it became a hit film in Telugu, because of N.T.Rama Rao. In Hindi, however, it had an average audience.

JAI SINGH-1959 was a dubbed film in Hindi,which came after a 4 years’ gap. I have seen both the Telugu and the Hindi versions. The story was….

Jai singh(NTR) is an orphan Prince of Malwa state,who is brought up lovingly by the wife of the wicked Wazir Rudra Singh(SV Ranga rao).He wants to kill Jaisingh,but jaisingh escapes and reaches Magadh Desh,where he rescues Padmini(Waheeda Rehman),the princess from the robbers.They fall in love.
Jaisingh stays with his loyal but crippled soldier Randhir (Gummadi),whose daughter Kalindi(Anjali Devi)loves Jaisingh,who treats her as his sister.
The king of magadh is imprisoned by the rebels,but Jaisingh rescues him.Then Padmini is kidnapped.Meanwhile Rudra singh sends his senapathi and captures Jaisingh,to kill him.
Kalindi reaches the jail,rescues Jaisingh and dies in the fighting which follows,thus sacrificing her life for her love.
Jaisingh then fights Rudra singh,kills him and then rescues Padmini also.
They get married and live happily thereafter.

The Hero of this film N.T.Rama Rao (NTR) was a very famous and popular actor in the south. NTR founded his production company NAT with an intention to make message oriented movies. Though his first two productions, Pitchi Pullaiah and Thodudongalu won critical appreciation, they left him with a huge monetary loss. A disheartened NTR told his production chief and relative Atluri Pundarikakshaiah that they should sell their cars and henceforth travel by bicycles. His producer-brother Nandamuri Trivikrama Rao and Pundarikakshaiah suggested to him that they should make a folk tale for their next venture. NTR also felt it was a safe bet to produce folklore as three of his starrers in a row, Pathala Bhairavi , Chandirani , and Rechukka were big hits. Thus was born the story of Jayasimha .

In this film an actor Gummadi has done the role of an old soldier- Randhir, whose daughter is Anjali Devi. That time Gummadi was an young man below 30, but he did the role of an aged, old man. Later in his memoirs, Gummadi wrote ” “After shooting the song, Jaya Jaya Sri Rama, I removed the makeup and sat next to NTR. Anjali Devi asked NTR ‘who is this boy?’ NTR had a hearty laugh and replied, ‘Till now he is the one who acted as your father.’ I can never forget the surprised expression on Anjali Devi’s face. As an actor it was the most memorable moment in my life.”

Normally we do not know much about Southern actors or actresses. Today, let us know more about NTR. Nandmuri Tarak Rama Rao ( 28-5-1923 to 18-1-1996) was an actor and a Politician from Andhra Pradesh. He was undoubtedly one of the most popular actors in his hay days. That is why, probably, his many hit films were either remade or mostly dubbed in Hindi – the maximum number than any other south artiste – 23 films. His contemporaries like Sivaji Ganesan, MGR, Gemini Ganesan etc were far behind him in this race.

He was born in a small village in Krishna District of Andhra coming under the then Madras Presidency. He was adopted by his childless Uncle and Aunty. He matriculated in 1940 and graduated from Guntur college in 1947. He first joined Government service as a Sub-Registrar but quit in 21 days to seek film roles. While studying, he was married to his maternal cousin in 1943 from whom he had 8 sons and 4 daughters- a full dozen children.

He debuted in the film “Mana Desam “-1949, directed by L.V.Prasad. Then there was no looking back. In the 50’s, he became very popular by doing roles of Rama, Krishna and Karna in mythological films. Later he did many films of the ” Robin Hood ‘type. He acted in Telugu and Tamil films. In 1982, he left films and founded Telugu Desam Party to safeguard regional pride. He was Chief Minister of A.P. from 1983 to 1995. He died on 18-1-1996. He was given Padmashree in 1968.

As I am from Hyderabad and know Telugu language, I have seen many of his films. He had a typical Drama Type acting style, like all other south artistes of his times. He founded his own film company and studio called National Art Theatre ( NAT), and produced over 30 films.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey.

Today’s song is from the film Nagad Narayan-1943. This was a film made by New Hans Pictures, Bombay. The director was Hindi/Marathi veteran- Vishram Bedekar. Songs were written by Kavi Bekal, Kavi Shamim and Munshi Dil. The MD was Shridhar Parsekar.

Film Nagad narayan was a bilingual film made in Hindi and Marathi (with a title of ‘ पैसा बोलतो आहे ‘ means The money is talking ). Marathi was the first language to make bilingual Talkie films regularly since 1932. The very first Marathi Talkie film- अयोध्येचा राजा , was also made in Hindi as Ayodhya ka Raja, simultaneously. This was purely a business move on the part of Marathi film makers. Though the Marathi film industry was growing by the day, it also wanted to capture the biggest All India Hindi market.

This was followed by the Bengal film industry and every successful Bengali film was remade in Hindi or was simultaneously made bilingual in Bangla and Hindi. By this, not only the filmmakers were benefited, but the audience of All India was also enjoying the feast of the best of Bangla and Marathi films. One offshoot of this bilingual game was that many Marathi artistes – actors, directors and MDs and singers also entered the Hindi films. Thus along with the audiences, the industries also benefited by this activity.

In due course of time i.e. by 1948, the Southern film industry too entered this fray of Multilingual films. In the South, the trend was to make films in 3 or more languages at the same time or make their remakes later in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi. Comparatively Malayalam and Kannada film industries were late to play this multilingual game. By the decade of 1950, the Marathi and Bangla film industries had their own playing fields in sufficiently big size and they reduced making bilingual films. The South took the advantage and continued making films in Hindi even in the from the 50’s to the end of the 70’s decades. Later on Dubbing the Southern films became cheaper and more frequent than making bilingual or remaking the films in Hindi.

Because of the Bilingual system of Marathi and Hindi films, many Music Directors from Marathi entered Hindi films. MDs like Dada Chandekar,Govindrao Tembe, Keshavrao Bhole, S.P.Rane, Prof. B.R.Deodhar, Baurao ketkar, Annasaheb Mainkar, K.R.Gore, Master krishnarao, Datta Korgaonkar (K.Datta) etc gave music to early Hindi films. It was followed by Vasant Desai, Datta Davjekar, Snehal Bhatkar, Sudhir Phadke etc etc.

There were many small-time MDs from Marathi films like C.Balaji aka Balaji Chaugule-for example, who remained unknown. In this rush and jumble of competetion for survival few really meritorious but commercially unsuccessful Music Directors appeared like Comets and disappeared.

Shridhar Parsekar, composer of today’s film, was one such Gem, who had immense talent but insufficient Luck. And when he became famous and in demand for his music, he fell victim of Alcohol and embraced death in very pitiable conditions. Here is his story….

From the crop of Musicians from GOA,there was one outstanding Musician- SHRIDHAR PARSEKAR, who was a singer,an All India Famous Violin Player,composer of many Marathi songs/films/dramas and few Hindi films.He was an expert in playing almost 10 different instruments.

SHRIDHAR PARSEKAR was born in 1920 in Goa. From the childhood he was a lover of Music and learnt classical Music first from his uncle Parshuram buwa Parsekar and he was trained by him in playing various instruments like Harmonium, Jaltarang, Tabla and Violin.He was a disciple of Gajanan Buwa Joshi a noted musician.He operated a Band in Bardez-Goa and played Violin,Clarionet,harmonium and many other instruments.He was a Genius and soon became a name for playing Violin.

He came to Mumbai and continued learning Music here under many well known gurus, like Khadeem Hussain Khan, Natthan Khan and Awar Hussain. Soon he was performing in stage shows doing Jugalbandis with stars of the day like Ravishanker, Vilayat Khan and Akbar Ali Khan. Kishen Maharaj was very pleased with him. For some time he joined AIR-Bombay as a Musician and got friendly with Ustad Alla Rakha who also worked in AIR. R G Ramnathkar, who got him the Radio job, also taught him many Raaga/Raaginis. Parsekar did Radio work for 6 years.

Later he worked as assitant to Music Director Annasaheb Mainkar and then started as MD for Marathi Films and stage dramas.His music in dramas like Bhakta Damaji, Paisa bolto ahe, Kuber and Kanyadaan was very popular.He also recorded many Bhavgeets and Natyageets from reputed singers in Marathi. HMV and Odeon took out his records. Singers like Jyotsna Bhole, Saraswati Rane, Hirabai Badodekar,Vatsala Kumthekar and Master Krishnarao Chonkar also sang for him. One of his songs- ” Vithal Vithal Gajari,awaghi dum dumali Pandhari ” ( विठ्ठल विठ्ठल गजरी, अवघी दुमदुमली पंढरी ) from Bhakta Damaji is so popular that it is sold even today.

With Marathi films, recording of private songs, stage shows with prominent musicians,Shridhar had every happiness with him.He had a Bungalow,cars,bank balance, name, fame and plenty of demand. He wrote a book on Music-‘Swar Ninad’.

And then it happened !

He became an Alcoholic. Normally, a person becomes Alcoholic when he is unsuccessful, but this was an opposite case. While on the top of success he became an Alcoholic. He used to drink day and night.

Once there was a jugalbandi programme of him with Ustad Vilayat khan. Shridhar came fully drunk to the Theatre. Vilayat Khan scolded him and left the show. Such things kept on happening leading to his downfall.

He stopped getting work and all his wealth, house, cars etc was sold for liquor. His condition was such that he would play Violin on streets and earn money. Lata Mangeshkar has narrated an incident, which I read in a book ” From Noorjehan to Lata ” by Isak Mujawar. Book says…

” one day Lata’s car stopped in the traffic. Out of curiosity she peeped out to see what happened. There was a person in tattered clothes playing a violin beautifully and people had gathered to listen to him. Some people gave him alms. She asked the driver if he knew that person. The driver replied that it was Parsekar buwa. She got down, went to Parsekar and told him to come with her. She will look after him now. On this, Parsekar replied that her father had asked him to look after their family, which he could not do, so why should she look after him. If she wants to help, just give some money. She gave him 50 rupees and he almost ran away from there….probably to the wine shop ! “-

Finally Shridhar Parsekar died of liver Cirrhosis on 10-9- 1964 ! He was only 44 years old !! Such a brilliant artist wasted by Alcohol.So Sad ! Pt.Ravi Shankar and Vilayat Khan had personally met his family after his death,so much was the respect for his talent !!

In addition to 7 Marathi films, Shridhar Parsekar gave music to five Hindi films like, Nagad Narayan-43,Mahakavi Kalidas-44, Meri Amanat-47, Andhon ka Sahara-48 and Gokul ka Raja-54. He composed 45 songs in these films. He sang 5 songs in 2 films, Andhon ka sahara-48 and Gokul ka Raja-54. Many famous singers sang for him, like, Minakshi, Khan Mastana, Rajkumari, Master Krishnarao, Mohantara, Vinodini Dikshit etc.

Pt. Ravi Shankar shared his memories of Sridhar-: “I knew Sridhar. He was a wonderful violinist, a disciple of Gajananrao Joshi. Sridhar Parsekar was a staff artist at AIR Bombay when Alla Rakha was also a staff member there. This is the period I knew him in the early forties. He was a smart young fellow, dark and very good looking. He came to hear me a lot and I also heard him a lot. I played one duet with him as I did with his Guru in the late 40’s in Bombay. It was a wonderful duet I played with him and Alla Rakha accompanied us. Along with many other musicians Kishen Maharaj was sitting in the front. I admired him as a musician and I have always felt very sad how he ruined his life and killed himself with his addiction to alcohol.”

In 1993, the violinist V.G. Jog said about Parsekar…. “Sridhar Parsekar was a tayyar and sweet violinist. Excellent presentation. SP used to call me Bandu Jog! The tragedy was that such a big artiste did not maintain his kala. Before preparing any students, he passed away and that caused me great sadness. Else there might have been excellent violinists in India today. When he was at his peak, I was just a student, but AIR programs were greatly appreciated and he was also a great composer especially for Marathi films. Ramakrishnabua Vaze blessed him. He learnt from Gajananrao Joshi and once he played a Jugalbandhi with Ravi Shankar.”

Film Nagad Narayan was directed by Vishram Bedekar. Born as Vishwanath Chintamani Bedekar,on 13-8-1906 at Amravati,Maharashtra,he took the name Vishram,once he started writing. After graduation,he did his Post-graduation in English Literature from Nagpur university. He went to Poona in 1930 to do a Teaching job. Here he met his student cum future wife Balutai Khare…who was one of the First girls riding on Bicycles to college,in those days. They got married in 1938.She became Malati Bedekar,a famous Marathi writer later on. His first novel ” Ranangan” came out in 1939,while he was in the film business.

He started with Sangeet Natak company Balwant Sangeet Mandali as playwright-lyricist. Moved to film-making when the theatre group expanded its box-office draw by producing Krishnarjun Yuddha, starring the group’s writer-actor Chintamanrao Kolhatkar. Unlike other films produced by Sangeet Natak companies (e.g. Lalit Kaladarsh), the film succeeded commercially and he co-directed three more with the group’s owner-producer Vamanrao N. Bhatt. Scripted the mythological Pundalik (1936) and, according to his autobiography, co-d the film with V.N. Bhatt. Briefly studied film-making in the UK (1938); published his first novel, Ranangan (1938), on his return. Joined Prabhat briefly to write Shantaram’s Shejari/Padosi (1941), returning to the studio to script Ramshastri (1944, a re-edited version of which, credited to him, was later released as a children’s film entitled Ramshastri Ka Nyay) and to direct Guru Dutt’s début, Lakhrani. This was the first film in which Guru Dutt played a role and also did its Choreography. It was here that Guru Dutt met Dev Anand,who had joined Prabhat as an apprentice.

He made classic melodramas for Baburao Pendharkar’s New Huns, Baburao Pai’s Famous Pics and Minerva Movietone. Wrote Shantaram’s Amar Bhoopali (1951). Directed some of the Ramsay Brothers’ early productions (Rustom Sohrab, Ek Nannhi Munni Ladki Thi). Works in the modernist frame defined by K. Narayan Kale’s generation and G.B. Shaw; most of his literary and filmic work recasts stereotypes of pre-WW1 Marathi social reform novels into the declamatory style of prose melodrama with increasingly complex storylines. As playwright, works include Brahmakumari, Vaje Paool Apule and Tilak Ani Agarkar (1980). Also scripted his films. Published autobiography, Ek Jhaad Ani Don Pakshi (1985).

Vishram Bedekar divided his life and time between writing and films. He was a trained Cinematographer and Director from London in those days. He wrote several Dramas in marathi. After directing 28 films in Marathi and Hindi,he left films after doing Bharat ke shaeed-1972. In 1985 he wrote his autobiography in Marathi- एक झाड आणि दोन पक्षी-. He got the Sahitya Academy Award for this book. He is the only Film director with such laurels. Vishram Bedekar died in Pune on 30-10-1998,at the age of 92 years.

Here is an excellent song from the film Nagad Narayan-1943, sung by Rajkumari, Khan mastana and chorus. The song was provided to me by our friend Deepak Choudhari ji and was uploaded for me by another stalwart Sadanand Kamath ji. Thanks to both.

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this post which again is coming after a ‘long gap’ in this series. Well, I hope to conclude this series too at the earliest possible 🙂 .

In this tenth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna – the Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1983. This was the year of Rajesh Khanna. He was back on the top with a bang. I don’t know if I should say this that he was reinstated as the ‘King of Bollywood’ once again.

The successes of the movies ‘Avtaar’, ‘Sautan’, and to an extent of the movie ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’ brought Kaka back into the limelight again. Another movie ‘Nishaan’ starring Kaka which was also released during this year 1983 also performed well at the box-office. Though he had delivered some versatile performances and kept doing different roles during the period 1975 to 1978 he was still far away from that level of success which he had tasted before.

He finally got a big boost in 1983 after his continued good performances, critically acclaimed performances and some commercially hit performances in the previous years i.e. from 1979 to 1982. Hit movies like ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodisi Bewafaai’ (1980); critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose’ (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980); successful movies like ‘Bandish’ in 1980; and then multi-starrer hits like ‘Qudrat’ in 1981, and ‘Raajput’, ‘Ashaanti’, and ‘Dharam Kaanta’ in 1982 had finally paid off. With two back-to-back hits – ‘Avtaar’ and ‘Sautan’, where Kaka was the main lead and a semi-hit like ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’, brought a new life to Kaka’s filmi career or his ‘second innings’ as it is generally said.

In the year 1983 the following five movies of Rajesh Khanna were released. Although the movie ‘Baabu’ was passed by Censor Board in 1983, I remember it was released in theaters in 1985. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

Sl. No. Movie Title Director Censor Date
01 Agar Tum Na Hote Lekh Tandon 27.10.1983
02 Avtaar Mohan Kumar 27.01.1983
03 Baabu^ A.C. Trilokchander 01.11.1983
04 Nishaan Surendra Mohan 06.01.1983
05 Sautan Sawan Kumar 24.05.1983

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Avtaar’. And since this year 1983 was a special year for Kaka, I would like to present more posts covering songs from this year. Let us see how it works.

‘Avtaar’ made its debut on the blog on 27.08.2012 with this song “Ho Ooperwaale Tera Jawaab Nahin” and I would like to quote below what Atul ji had written about this movie of Rajesh Khanna.

“Avtaar” (1983) was a movie of Rajesh Khanna during the second innings of his acting career when he was no longer a superstar. The movies in which Rajesh Khanna acted during this phase won critical acclaim though even if Rajesh Khanna came nowhere close to regaining his lost crown.

 

‘Avtaar’ was produced and directed by Mohan Kumar for his home productions Emkay Enterprises. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sachin, AK Hangal, Sujit Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Madhu Malini, Yunus Parvez, Shashi Puri, Gulshan Grover, Pichoo Kapoor, Ranjan Grewal, Preeti Sapru and others. Madan Puri had a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kumar and Mushtaq Jalili. Screenplay of this movies was written by Mohan Kumar and dialogues were written by Mushtaq Jalili. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Bhatt. It was passed by Censor Board on 27.01.1983. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that this film was re-certified with English sub-titles by Censor Board on 06.05.1983.

The movie has five songs (including one two-part song) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. This is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Alka Yagnik, and Mahendra Kapoor. This song is picturized on Shashi Puri-Preeti Sapru, Gulshan Grover-Rajni Sharma. Both couples are lip syncing the voices of Suresh Wadkar and Alka Yagnik. Mahendra Kapoor’s voice is used for background score where we can see Rajesh Khanna working hard in his own garage and preparing himself for a greater challenge.

In the movie this song happens when Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi have left their home as their sons have betrayed them. Sachin (Sewak) accompanies them and arranges a temporary shelter for them. Not only this, after listening the conversation between his master and bibi ji he understands what his master needs. He then donates his blood and from the money for the blood, he buys aujaar (tools) for his master so that he can start his own garage. Rajesh Khanna has an uphill task from here to turn the fortunes while his sons are enjoying with their friends. That is where this song takes place, and we have some meaningful lyrics to listen.

That was all around forty years back now.

And if we go back fifty years i.e. to the year 1973 we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 58
————————————————————————————–

This date (29 June) ten years ago (2012) saw four songs from four movies getting covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Blog Post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks

Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) -7 (1987)
—————————————————————
In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1987.

In this year ‘1987’ too we can see a decline in total number of movies where R.D. Burman had composed music, in comparison to the years 1984 and 1985 where he had composed music for 17 & 18 movies respectively.

In ‘1987’ R.D. Burman had composed music for nine movies as per details given below.

9 Mardonwaali Baat Brij Indeevar 31.12.1987 0

From the above table we can also see that only three movies out of nine movies where R.D. Burman had composed music are represented on the blog.

Today we introduce one more movie from ‘Pancham’s movies of ‘1987’. This movie is ‘Apne Apne’, which is alphabetically the first movie in the above table.

“Apne Apne-1987” was directed by Ramesh Behl for ‘Rose Movies’. Ramesh Behl was also the producer of this movie.

It had Jeetendra, Rekha, Karan Shah, Mandakini, with Satish Shah, Atlee Brar, Dan Dhanoa, Sushma Seth, Bina, Babli, Anjana, Ghanshyam, Chandu, Pandurang Boloor, Lata, Sheela, Leena, Mina, Tina, Rupa, Omi Chopra, Surendre, Rahi, Vasu, Iqbal, Rakesh, Reshma Aurora, Anthony, Prakash, and Kader Khan.
Hema Malini had a special appearance in this movie.

This movie was written by Aziz Qaisi. Sunder Shetty was the editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.03.1987.

Lyrics for the songs of this movie were written by Gulshan Bawra. And music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, R.D. Burman had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer
01 Apne apne se lage hamen Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar
02 Idhar bhi tu, udhar bhi tu Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar
03 Toone kiya kya jaadoo R.D. Burman
04 Teri yaad mein neend nahin aayee Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar
05 Jo socha bhi na tha wo honewaala hai Asha Bhonsle
06 Gyaan daan hi sabse badaa hai Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song appears in two parts in the movie. Tthe first part is lip-synced by Rekha. We can see Jeetendra and others (including many child artists) in the picturisation of this part.

The second part is picturised on Mandakini, with others present in the picturisation of this song. After listening to this part-2, I can guess that the video clip for part-2 is including two stanzas on different situations. The last stanza plays in the background when Rekha is about to die in this movie. And we can see Hemal Malini, Jeetendra, Mandakini, Karan Shah, Bina present there.

This composition is a wonderful composition to listen to. Lyrics are by Gulshan Bawra and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

Let us now listen to today’s song.

“Fariyaad”(1964) was produced and directed by Kidar Sharma for Show People, Bombay. The movie had Ashok, Zeb Rehman aka Preeti Bala, Dilip Dutt, Mohan Choti, Achala Sachdev, Gyani, Gopal Sehgal, Bela Bose, Apsara, Malik, Maria, Tuntun, Sayeeda, Najma, Shabani, Raj Maria etc in it.

“Fariyaad”(1964) had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here are the details of the songs covered so far:-

Blog post number Song Singer (s)
1510 Haal e dil unko sunaanaa thaa Suman Kalyanpur
3634 Wo dekho dekh rahaa thhaa papeehaa Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur
5705 Aapne huzoor mujhe kya se kya bana diya Suman Kalyanpur, Rafi
5921 Tu ne teri nazar ne mujhe kaafir bana diyaa Rafi, Mubarak Begam
16260 Dilli se do behnen aayin Mahendra Kapoor, Mubarak Begam

The sixth and final song from the movie is sung by Mubarak Begam and Suman Kalyapur. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar.

As can be noticed from the lyrics, this song is about Chinese aggression on a totally unprepared India in 1962. It exhorts the youth of India to come forward to protect the nation.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the songs of “Fariyaad”(1964) have been covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 15#
——————————————

Today we add the movie ‘Samaantaa’ (1972) on the blog.

‘Samaantaa’ was directed by Nitin Bose for Parijaat Films, Bombay. It had Snehlata, Dheeraj, Aashu, Brahmachari, Ranjeeta Thakur, Uma Dhawan, Murad, Sapru, BM Vyas, Shivraj, Rajan Kapoor, Gulab Mokashi, Manekraj, Preetam, Harendranath Chattopadhyay, Chandrakant, Nathalal, Annu, Pradeep, Milap, and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.12.1972.

This movie had three songs written by two songwriters – two songs by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and one song by Omkar Verma. Music for this movie was composed by Nitin-Mangesh. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Song Title

Singer/s

Lyricist

01

Main To Chup Hi Rahoongi Na Kahoongi, Asha Bhonsle Qamar Jalaalabaadi

02

Saathiyon, Sun Lo Zaraa Ye Daastaan, Mohd Rafi Qamar Jalaalabaadi

03

Is Duniya Mein Rehnewaale Sab Hon Ek Samaan Manna Dey Omkar Verma

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. It is a long song. HFGK doesn’t mention the record numbers for this movie. Given the length of the two parts, it is very likely that this long song is accommodated on two sides of a 78 rpm record, hence is it available in two parts on the YouTube. The movie itself seems to be an obscure movie of its time. I could not find the video of this song. However, the audio for both the parts is available. Lyrics for today’s song are by Omkar Verma and music is composed by Nitin-Mangesh.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post – “Le Ke Main To Champa Chameli Babu” from the movie ‘Rut Rangeelee Aayee’, to today’s movie song-post.

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’, ‘Hunterwaali’, ‘Lady James Bond’, ‘Miss Chaalbaaz’ (Tingoo Agent 000) and ‘Rajdhani Express’ seem to be unavailable as of now.
  2. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadu Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song can be termed as a ‘social awareness song’ to promote ‘equality’ (samaantaa) amongst all in the society. As the video of this song is not available, we do not know on whom it is picturised in the movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

With this song, the movie ‘Samaantaa’ makes its debut on the blog. Let us now listen to the today’s song and welcome this movie on the blog 😊

Over to the song now. . .
