To keep up our New Year resolution of one movie getting Yippeeeed per day I found that the 1982 Manmohan Desai produced & directed “Desh Premee” falls short by a song to achieve YIPPEEHOOD.

The movie had six songs (referred myswar.com for this information) of which the blog has 5 songs. The songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi -Pyare were the music directors. The movie had one song by Mohd. Rafi- his last in a Manmohan Desai movie (that is the left over song). Manmohan Desai with Laxmi-Pyare and Mohd. Rafi had created a magical era of Bollywood music. This movie had Shammi Kapoor in a supporting role with the Bengali superstar of that era- Uttam Kumar; but both didn’t have any song to lip-sync. The movie payed tribute to Mehmood’s Hydrabadi- character from “Gumnaam” and we had Amitabh Bachchan dressing up; as Mehmood had done in Gumnaam and singing “Khatoon Ki Khidmat Me” in a Hyderabadi lingo in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Laxmikant’s voice was used for both Prem Chopra and Amitabh in the song “Gore Nahin Hum Kaale Sahi”; the only time he sang in movies (credits of the movie shows his name as Laxmikant Karpe.) This was one movie where Parveen Babi didn’t sing a song. Though it was an “Average” movie everywhere else it was a “Golden Jubilee” at Hyderabad’s Ramakrishna (I remember that as the movie hall where I saw Sholay for the first time in my life). The film paid tribute to Mohd. Rafi and Uttam Kumar both of whom died two years before the movie released. It’s censor cerificate has the date 6-3-1982 and it was released on 23-04-1982.

So here is the last song. It is filmed in a Basti- Bharat Nagar; trust Manji (thats how Amitabh refers to Manmohan Desai in his interviews) to make things very clear to the public. It is shown to be a refugee camp of sorts and has Premnath playing a Nair- South Indian, Shammi Kapoor a Sardar- North Indian of course, Uttam Kumar a Bengali- Indian from east, and Parikshit Sahni representing western India and a muslim for added effect; things cannot be more explicit than this- right? The song preaches to love our fellow Indians and respect the ideals of the nation.
Foot Note: just saw the title sequence of the movie and I recommend it for the thought behind how Amitabh’s blood is shown dripping from his leg and “Inquilaab Zindabad” is formed. Hatsoff to MANJI.

Erich Segal’s immortal novel “Love Story” has inspired quite a few movies. The first such movie was a Hollywood movie of the same name that was released in 1970, a few months after this novel was released on 14 february 1970.

Hindi movies have also joined the bandwagon. “Ankhiyon ke Jharokhon se” (1978) was based on “Love Story”. A Rajshree Productions release, this movie was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Hiren Nag. Vrajendra Gaur as the writer had adapted this story, Indianising the movie as much as he could.

Putting songs is one of the obvious ways of Indianising a foreign story. And it must be said that the songs of this movie served to create just the right ambiance for the story to move.

Like the novel, the end is revealed in the very beginning of the movie. If “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se” (1978) still did well at the bo office then one of the major reasons for that were its songs that were superbly created and integrated with the story.

The fact that this story was adapted from “Love Story” the novel was not known to me when I bunked my afternoon practical class to watch this movie in matinee show one evening in 1978. I did not like the movie much because of its tragic end (revealed right at the beginning) and also because of the story line that I felt were quite contrived and artificial. The reason for that was of course the foreign nature of the source material, as one can see.

If people still lapped up the movie, it was because of its music. What superbly created songs by Ravindra Jain ! He used Hemlata as his femmale playback singer and I found her voice quite high quality honey like in these songs. Surprisingly, no other music director would use her voice and her career faded just as Ravindra Jain’s did.

Coming to “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978), this movie had six songs in it. Three of them have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is a collection of “dohas” that we used to study in our Hindi textbooks those days. These “dohas” of poets like Rahim, Kabeer, Tulsidas etc contain invaluable lessons of life, delivered tersely and succinctly.

I am quite surprised that these “dohas” did not find places in too many movie songs. This song was one of the very few such songs.

Students of later generations do not get exposed to such poems I feel. As a result many of the words in these poems have ended up becoming alien to them. Lyrics of this song is available online and each one copies from each other, but the lyrics are noted down by later generation music enthusiasts who are not familiar with these poms as as a result the lyrics of this song available online contain serious inaccuracies.

The song is sung by Hemalata and Jaspal Singh. The song is picturised on Ranjeeta and Sachin who are shown contesting in a “poetry contest” in their college.

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

Here is this nice collection of Hindi “Dohas” in this song.

I have not been able to get one word right (may be more). I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable in the lyrics.


Song-Bade badaai na karen bade na bolen bol (Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se)(1978) Hemlata, Jaspal Singh, Ravindra Jain Ravindra Jain

bade badaayi na karen
bade na bolen bol
bade badaayi na karen
bade na bolen bol
rahiman heera kab kahe
laakh taka mero mol
rahima
laakh taka mero mol

jo baden ko laghu kahen
nahin rahim ghati jaayen
jo baden ko laghu kahen
nahin rahim ghati jaayen
girdhar murlidhar kahe
kachhu dukh maanat naahin
rahima
kachhu dukh maanat naahin

gyaani se kahiye kaha
kahat kabir lajaaye
gyaani se kahiye kaha
kahat kabir lajaaye
andhe aage naachte
kala akaarath jaaye
kabira

aisi baani boliye
mann ka aapa khoye
aisi baani boliye
mann ka aapa khoye
auran ko sheetal kare
aaphu sheetal hoye
kabira
aap hu sheetal hoye

aawat hi harse nahin
nainan nahin saneh
aawat hi harse nahin
nainan nahin saneh
tulsi kahaa na jaayiye
chaahe kanchan barse meh
re tulsi
kanchan barse meh

bura jo dekhan main chala
bura na milya koye
bura jo dekhan main chala
bura na milya koye
jo dil khoja aapna
mujhse bura na koye
kabeera

bigdi baat bane nahin
laakh karo kin koy
bigdi baat bane nahin
laakh karo kin koy
rahiman bigde doodh ko
mathe na maakhan hoy

mathe na maakhan hoy

rahiman dhaaga prem ka
mat todo chatkaay
rahiman dhaaga prem ka
mat todo chatkaay
toote se phir na jude
jude gaanthh pad jaaye
rahima
jude gaanthh pad jaaye

“Matwaala”(1958) was directed by M A Thirumugam for Saraswati Pictures. The movie had Ranjan, Baliah, Anjali Devi, E. V. Saroja, P. S. Verappan, M. K. Radha etc in it.

This obscure movie had seven obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Matwaala”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Hargovind is the lyricist. Music is composed by R Sudarshanam.

Only the audio of this song is avaialable. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. The word “Matwaala” figures a few times in the song and that makes this song the theme cum title song of the movie.

With this song, “Matwaala”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Sach ki hogi jeet sadaa (Matwaala)(1958) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hargovind, MD-R Sudarshanam

Lyrics

sach ki hogi jeet sada
aur jhooth ki hogi haar
kaaghaj ke phulo pe kaise
aa sakti hai bahaar

jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

baadal garje bijli kadke
toofaan shor machaaye
manzil ka matwaala raahi
aage badhta jaaye
hanste hanste har mushqil
aasaan bana hi lega aa aa
aasaan bana hi lega
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega

door ho kinaara bhale door ho
kitna wo thhaka haara majboor ho
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
ismein hi jeet maane jeet dilwaala
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

Fareed Tonki’s “Raste Alag-Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai” is my all-time favourite lyrical message of religious tolerance, harmony and mutual respect. It drives home the poignant truism for the faithful that God, by whichever name, is after all One.
