Today (11 August 2022) is Rakshabandhan. This is the 15th Rakshabandhan for this blog. The first Rakshabandhan for the blog fell on 16 August 2008. That day saw the iconic Rakshabandhan song namely Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana (Chhoti Bahan)(1959) getting covered on the blog.

On those early days, only one song was discussed in a day. Subsequently multiple songs began to be covered daily. Festival days were no exception. So more than one Rakshabandhan songs were also discussed in the subsequent occasions.

Till now as many as 24 Rakshabandhan songs have been covered on the blog. Most of these songs (if not all) are sung in the female voice and lip synced by a female character playing the Rakhi tying sister.

The Rakshabandhan song under discussion today is different in quite a few respects. It is sung by a male singer. It is a “sales pitch” song where Rakhi is being sold. The song is sung by Amit Kumar (though HFGK is silent about the name of the singer). It is picturised on Vinod Khanna disguised as an old Rakhi seller. So this song is a “disguise” song as well. Rakesh Roshan and Pradeep Kumar are also seen in the picturisation.

This song is from ‘Hatyaara’ (1977). The movie was produced by Sunil Sharma and JR Shah and directed by Surendra Mohan for Sunil Arts, Bombay. The movie had Vinod Khanna, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, Priyadarshini, Nirupa Roy, Pran, Dev Kumar, Man Mohan, Kanahiyalal, Raj Mehra, Chand Usmani, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sunder, Gulshan Bawra, Sahu Modak, Johny Whisky, Sabeena, Shyam, Shefali, Rajkumar, Premji, Bihari, Moolchand, Hamid, Raj Malhotra, Rajkishore, Nazir Kashmiri, Omi, Harun Khan, CL Shah, Jugnu, Kedarnath Sehgal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Baby Prerna, Master Bittu, Master Raju, Master Rajesh Valecha etc. The movie also had guest appearances by Pradeep Kumar, Laxmi Chhaaya and Mehmood.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered so far.

Here is this second song from ‘Hatyaara’ (1977). The movie had three lyricists in it but the lyricist of this song is no known. This song only appears in the movie. Its records were not made. Music direction was by Kalyanji Anandji.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the missing details of the song (viz lyricist).

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

हो ओ राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो

अरे हिन्दी फिल्मों के सटार

जैसे जया और गुलज़ार
जिन को है राखी से प्यार
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो

तुम भी छोड़ो सोच विचार
राखी ले लो हवलदार
बहनें करेंगी तुमसे प्यार
जल्दी बनोगे थानेदार
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो
हो ले लो ओ
ले लो जी ले लो
राखी ले लो जी ले लो

Hullo Atuldom

Back after a small absence where I terribly missed my favourite addiction- writing for the blog. Various reasons, primary being a minor mishap which has put my right hand in cast, and taken me away from the comfort of my desktop. But here I am, at the first available opportunity, when I got a few minutes with my computer. I have promised myself that I will write a very short post and obey the well-meaning advice of my friends of the blog and outside of the blog.

This post is to remember the female superstar of Indian Film Industry whose anniversary it is on 24th February. The star who was also a National award-winning actress, who had highly emotive eyes, a fabulous hold on comedy and a dancer of a calibre of her own, left us shocked by departing from this mortal world on this date two years ago. She made a beautiful pair with all her co actors be it Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil and other ladies as also Kamalhasan, Rajnikanth, (who were her co-stars in her debut film as an adult)and all the actors of her times in the Indian film industry- name any hero or actor and you can have a movie of hers with him irrespective of the language. We have her in at least one movie with even Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Nasiruddin Shah, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt etc. It is difficult to point out who she paired successfully with or was eye-catching with.

Today’s song featuring this superstar/ actress is from an inane-typical-masala Bollywood dishoom-dishoom film that released in 1990. It was produced by MP Jain and directed by Shibu Mitra. It had a star cast which was led by Sridevi and Dharmendra along with Sonam, Chunky Pandey, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Anupam Kher, AmrishPuri, Dara Singh, Satyen Kappu as the masalas of the movie.

The music director was the flavour of those years -Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. I haven’t seen “Naakabandi”(1990) and don’t intend to either but I remember two songs from the movie – one by Usha Uthup and another is by Asha Bhonsle.

Today’s song is by Asha Bhonsle. It shows Sridevi’s dancing and emoting expertise. I am sure Saroj Khan would have been the choreographer. The situation of the song seems to be an audition in front of Sadashiv Amrapurkar (hope I am right in recognising) but is a stage song. But definitely Anjaan has given an appropriate description Sridevi through the song – she was “kamaal” in all departments of acting.

As I was seeing the video of the song, I kept feeling “how sweet?” specially at the point where she mouths Gabbar Singh’s dialogues and we have Sambha (Mcmohan) and Kaalia (VijuKhote) reacting. Really pleasing choreography.
Missing you Sridevi

Song-Rekha ko dekha toone Hema ko dekha (Naakaabandi)(1990) Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, Md-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

thhaam thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
thhaam thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
Rekha ko dekha tune Hema ko dekha
Nargis ko dekha tune Nutan ko dekha
zara idhar palat kar dekh
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
thhaam thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam

Madhubala jaisi beauty hai meri
Asha Parekh jaisi chaal
talent Meena Kumari ka mujh mein
Zeenat ka jalwa jalaal
hai Sadhana ki wo saadgi bhi
Mumtaz waala dhamaal
Mala Waheeda ki sab khoobiyaan hain
Vyjayanthi ke sab kamaal
Rekha ko dekha tune Hema ko dekha
Nargis ko dekha tune Nutan ko dekha
zara idhar palat kar dekh
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
thhaam thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam haay

dance karna jaanoon
romance karna jaanoon
jo chahe mujhse karva lo

hero
heroine
comedian
villain ka dialogue koi bulwa lo
arre o sambha
kitne aadmi thhe
bahut naa-insaafi hai
goli chhe aur aadmi teen
ha ha ha ha ha ha
dhishum dhishum dhishum dhishum
ab tera kyahoga re kaaliya

Rekha ko dekha tune Hema ko dekha
Nargis ko dekha tune Nutan ko dekha
zara idhar palat kar dekh
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
thhaam thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam zara dil ko le thhaam

ho tragedy role ya comedy role
har role mein hoon main fit
jo bhi mujhe role dega film mein
uski film hogi hit
kar doongi ek din
chhutti main sabki
kaayam karoongi misaal
picture mein dega jo chance mujh ko
ho jaayega maalamaal

Rekha ko dekha tune Hema ko dekha
Nargis ko dekha tune Nutan ko dekha
zara idhar palat kar dekh
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
main lagti hoon
sridevi lagti hoon
thhaam thhaam
zara dil ko le thhaam
dil ko le thhaam
zara dil ko le thhaam
thaam thaam
zara dil ko le thaam
dil ko le thhaam
zara dil ko le thhaam

pujaari husn ka hoon main
na deewaana jawaani ka

I heard these lines in the inimitable voice of Mohammed Rafi yesterday on Radio Rafi. I was looking for details regarding this song in the Database at mohdrafi.com, so not paying much attention to the radio playing. As the words of the poem registered, it caught my attention. I managed to catch the last line in the audio clip “pujaari husn ka hoon main”.

Gosh, it has been a long trek already, and the night is very late as I complete the preparation and the write up for this post. And I am thinking about the 29 months, that seem to have flown by already. I had signed up for getting email notifications from this blog on 1st October, 2010, and today, it is exactly 2 years and 5 months. And what a heady and euphoric journey it has been so far. And all along the way, it has been raining music – most wonderful, and the best. Many beloved and favorites, many loving memories refreshed again with the help of friends on this bandwagon, and yes, so many, oh so many unheard gems to fall in love with on the first hear.

There is something special about Johnny Walker lip synching Rafi. One is that Rafi Sb of course sings with the true sound of fun and jest, as required by the situation. Along with that, Johnny Walker’s antics, the twitch of his smile and the twinkle in his eyes are more than enough to convince you that he too is thoroughly enjoying himself as he is performing. Take any song of these two together and one can feel the heightened quantum of fun and entertainment.

“Aji Bas Shukriya” (1958) was a movie starring Johny Walker and Geeta Bali. Yes, this movie had Johny Walker as the hero.

As can be guessed, this movie was a light hearted movie with fun songs in it.
