“Taxi Driver”(1973) was produced and directed by Mohammad Hussain for M H Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Helen, Vishal Anand aka Bhisham Kohli(Chalte Chalte fame), Anupama, Habib, Asit Sen, Munshi Munaqqa, Nazir Kashmiri, Uma Dutt, Ratna Mala, JankiDAss, Tuntun, Paro, Upendra Trivedi, Mohan Choti, Shabnam, Bhagwan dada, Sham Kumar,Dada Curtey, Prabha Desai, Jerry, Sabir, Gul Hamid, Maqbul, Dog Prince, Faryal, Jayashree T, Jagdeep, Randhir etc. in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs from the movie have been discussed in the blog. Here is the sixth and final song from “Taxi Driver”(1973) to figure in the blog.

This song, the least known song from the movie, is sung by two unknown singers called Badri and Ambar Kumar. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

In this song, two bemused visitors to Bombay get a culture shock looking at the ways of the Bombay residents in general and Bombay ladies in particular. Only the audio of this song is available so we cannot tell how and on whom this song is picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Taxi Driver”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Na inka rang asli hai na inka roop asli hai (Taxi driver)(1973) Singers-Badri, Ambar Kumar, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai
ye bambai hai haseenon ki
yahaan har cheez naqli hai
na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai
ye bambai hai haseenon ki
yahaan har cheez naqli hai
na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai

pahan kar bhai ki lungi
chali hai sair ko bahna
meri maano to tum aisi bala se door hi rahna
chipak kar rah gayi taangon se ye patloon angrezi
chipak kar rah gayi taangon se ye patloon angrezi
ye kapde aise pahne hain ke jaise kuchh nahin pahna
ye kapde aise pahne hain ke jaise kuchh nahin pahna
lage hain is ko par jhoothe
ye dhokhebaaz titli hai
ye bambai hai haseenon ki
yahaan har cheez naqli hai
na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai

laga ke surkhi aur laali
kiya hai laal gaalon ko
banaaya ghonsla chidiyon ka
apne sir ke baalon ko
na iski aankh mein jaadu
na iski chaal mein masti
na iski aankh mein jaadu
na iski chaal mein masti
bana daala hai andha
isne saare aankh waalon ko
bana daala hai andha
isne saare aankh waalon ko
ye baahar se hai naarangi
magar andar se imli hai
ye bambai hai haseenon ki
yahaan har cheez naqli hai
na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai

ye nakhre aise karti hain
ke jaise cheeni gudiya hai
magar nazdeek se dekho
to ye painsath ki budhhiya hai
pati bhi iska ghabraata hai
ghar waale bhi darte hain
pati bhi iska ghabraata hai
ghar waale bhi darte hain
na ud jaaye kahin haathon se
ye sone ki chidiya hai
na ud jaaye kahin haathon se
ye sone ki chidiya hai
ye soorat se lage devi
magar aafat ki putli hai
ye bambai hai haseenon ki
yahaan har cheez naqli hai
na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai
ye bambai hai haseenon ki
yahaan har cheez naqli hai
na inka rang asli hai
na inka roop asli hai

Hullo to all in Atuldom

What is special today (16 october 2016)? It is the birthday of Hema-Dream Girl- Malini. She is still a dream to look at.

I had been to this show last month here in Bangalore where she was in chat with Kabir Bedi. (I had mentioned this in the post on Dev Anand’s birth anniversary.) It made my hair stand on end (as they say in Hindi- rongte khade ho gaye!)to see my favourite, since I was a child, at such close proximity. I felt like a kid once again. They played a clip from “Seeta aur Geeta”, the one where Manorama goes to the police station with Satyen Kappu to coax a very naughty Geeta to go home with them. The scene with the dialogue-“neeche aa beti.” To which Geeta replies: “oopar aa moti”. My mother used to tell me that as a child I had caught this dialogue and kept repeating it from the time we stepped out of the theatre after seeing the movie.

… a lilting voice […]
falling softer than petals from blown roses on the grass,
and then lingering on and echoing endlessly…

(excerpted from an article by Anup Kumar Pande, published in the Hindu dated December 17, 2004).

A description more decent, more appropriate, I have not been able to find, or even be able to conjure up. The word ‘grace’, characterizes this persona, in ways more than one. And in all ways, nothing more appropriate would appeal – the ‘grace’ of the Almighty, that was gifted to her; the ‘grace’ with which she carried this gift through a lifetime that can only be described as matchlessly supreme; and the ‘grace’ with which she conducted her life, and herself, in an era wherein being blemish-less is a dream accomplishment.

The Voice of Mukesh #69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film industry has seen many stars, who, by logical analysis, should not have been. Let me mention the names of four male singers, who have become legends now – Saigal Sb, Rafi Sb, Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Besides all four of them being singers who have rendered songs that have become timeless in their essence and popularity, there is one more common thread that runs through their lives. None of these four had any recognized formal training in classical music. And yet, their voice, their renditions, the emotional alchemy contained therein – has an element of something that can only be attributed to providence.

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

सच्ची, बहुत दिन हो गए बंबई गए। चलिए, फिर एक बार चलते हैं, मायानगरी में, एक बहुत ही अनूठे और अनसुने गीत के साथ।

Really, many days now since the last visit to Bombay. So I take you there once again today, along with a very rare, almost unheard and a very out of the ordinary song.

It has been exactly ‘a year and a week’ now, since I received (on 12.02.2015) my first HFGK copy for the Volume –V of HFGK i.e. for the films during the decade of 1971 to 1980.

With each passing day, whenever I glance through its pages, I am reminded of the huge task still to be accomplished to get the balance songs of this period to the blog.

People who are into stock markets try to guess the movement of shares based on past pattern of their price movement. I think that the principles of stock market indexes can be used to make guesses about my activities as well. If lots of songs are being discussed then it could mean that I have lots of time at my disposal, little pressure of work, family, pets etc and that my internet connection, electricity connection etc are co operating. 🙂
