‘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.

Blog Day : 3727 Post No. : 14666

Today, October 1st is the birth anniversary of two iconic personalities of Hindi film music. Both started their career in Hindi film industry in Bombay (Mumbai) in 1946 – one as a music director and the other as a lyricist. Yes, it is Sachin Dev Burman’s 112th birth anniversary and Majrooh Sultanpuri’s 99th birth anniversary. Both have been my favourites amongst the music directors and lyricists of the golden era of Hindi film music. Both seem to have been made for each other. SD Burman was one of the earliest pioneers in introducing the concept of ‘tune first lyrics later’ in Hindi film music while Majrooh Sultanpuri was master in writing lyrics to the tune.

I found both of them to be non-conformists in their respective fields.  SD Burman’s compositions did not leave trails to identify them as SD Burman type of music. In my younger days, it was not easy for me to identify the songs composed by SD Burman. Had I not known in advance, I would have difficulties in knowing that songs of ‘Baazi’ (1951), ’Pyaasa’ (1957) and  ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957) were composed by the same music director. Majrooh Sultanpuri on the other hand wrote lyrics of varied moods and of all genres with ease. Another common factor between these two stalwarts was that both were called as ‘old man with young heart’. If SD Burman could composed Roop Tera Mastaana at the age of 64, Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote lyrics for Raat Shabnami Bheegi Chaandni at the age of 77.

Despite both SD Burman and Majrooh Sultanpuri starting their filmy career in 1946, it took about 11 years for both of them to work together in Navketan’s  ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), though the other collaboration, ‘Paying Guest’ (1957) was released first. The main reason was that SD Burman was already working with Sahir Ludhianvi since 1951. It was only when SD Burman stopped engaging Sahir after ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) that he found Majrooh Sultanpuri as a suitable lyricist partner. From 1957 till SD Burman’s death in October 1975, both of them worked together in 20 films composing 137 songs.

I have already written about Majrooh Sultanpuri last year while covering the song Nanha Mora Doley Mori Anganiaa. So in this article, I propose to discuss only the musical career of SD Burman.

Sachin Da (1/10/1906 – 31/10/1975) was born in Comilla, a part of Tripura at that time (now in Bangladesh). He belonged to Tripura’s royal family in which his father, Nabadwip Chandra Dev Burman, was the next in line to Tripura Royalty. However, due to some palace machinations, Nabadwip Burman was denied his right as the next king of Tripura because of which he along with his family shifted to Comilla. SD Burman’s childhood years in Comilla became his training ground for music as he became enthralled by the folk music of what was then known as East Bengal.

After graduation from a Comilla college, SD Burman enrolled for Master’s degree in English in the University of Calcutta in 1924. However, he soon gave up his studies to become the disciple of Krishna Chandra Dey (KC Dey). Later, he continued his musical training under Ustad Badal Khan and Pandit Bhishamdev Chatopadhyay.  The royal family of Tripura were the connoisseurs of Hindustani classical music. They resented SD Burman’s indulgence in singing and recording folk songs for earning as it was below dignity for a royal member of family to earn from the music. They also felt that folk songs were not meant for royalty as they were sung by the lower strata of the society. Because of this, SD Burman did not get the traditional royal welcome when he visited Agrtala after his marriage with Meera in 1938.

In 1932, SD Burman left Tripura for Calcutta (Kolkata) for pursuing his interest in music. In the same year, he approached HMV for his first recording of a non-filmy Bengali song. However, he failed in the audition test. Luckily for him, Hindustan Musical Products (Hindustan Records) offered to record his first gramophone song. The song became a major success for Hindustan Records. During 1932-1946, SD Burman recorded over 100 non-films, mostly Bengali and some filmy Bengali songs most of which became commercially successful.

Despite success as a singer in non-film songs, SD Burman had to face disappointment in 1933 when a song sung by him in the film ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933) was deleted and was recorded afresh in the voice of Pahadi Sanyal due to the internal politics of New Theatre. In 1935, SD Burman got an opportunity to do a minor role of a beggar in Madhu Bose’s film ‘Selima’ (1935) in which he was to sing a song. At first, SD Burman refused telling that he would be ostracised from the Tripura royal family if they came to know that he was working in a film. However, Madhu Bose assured him that no one would recognise him in his make-up of a beggar with beard and moustache. So this became SD Burman’s first film song as an actor-singer.

Sometime in 1942, SD Burman got an offer from Chandulal Shah to join Ranjit Movietone as music director. The offer was declined as he did not relish the idea of leaving Kolkata. In the next two years, he found that he was not able  to get enough opportunity to compose music for Bangla films as all important banners had their own music directors in their pay rolls. These music directors would offer him to sing as a playback singer which he would not agree as his wish was to become a music director. At this juncture, he took a decision that he would not sing for any other music directors and he would sing his own compositions for films not as a playback singer but as background singer. He maintained that stand consistently after he became a part of the Bombay (Mumbai) film industry in 1946.

In early 1940s, Bengal was reeling under the worst famine. The film industry was adversely affected. There was an exodus from Kolkata to Mumbai film industry for a different reason. SD Burman knew that despite his liking for Kolkata, he had to move to Mumbai to be able to achieve his dream of becoming a music director. In October 1944, SD Burman along with his family landed in Mumbai on the invitation from Rai Bahadur Chunnilal and Sashadhar Mukherjee who had formed Filmistan with Ashok Kumar, Gyan Mukherjee and other technicians, a breakaway group from Bombay Talkies.  Burman joined Filmistan as music director.

In Mumbai, SD Burman’s greatest handicap was his inability to fully understand Hindi, leave aside Urdu.  This handicap willy-nilly made him the pioneering in ‘tune first lyrics later’ concept in Hindi film song compositions. It is said that in his first two films with Filmistan, C Ramchandra helped SD Burman in music arrangements. I guess, as a newcomer, it was difficult for him to arrange musicians and communicate with them.

His first film as a music director was ‘Shikaari’ (1946) followed by ‘Aath Din’ (1946), both produced under the banner of Filmistan.  The music of ‘Shikari’ (1946) did not create much interest in the common public though studio hands appreciated newness in his music compositions. However, songs of ‘Aath Din’ (1946) especially two songs sung by SD Burman and Pehle Na Samjhaa Pyaar Tha by Ameerbai Karnataki became popular and made him a different class of music director well-versed with the then East Bengal folk music.

SD Burman was not satisfied with his music in these two films as he did not find anyone in the streets singing his songs. On the contrary, he found his servant always humming the songs from ‘Rattan’ (1944). He felt that unless his songs became popular on the streets, his presence as a music director would never be felt in Bombay film industry.

In the meanwhile, Sashadhar Mukherjee allowed him to take up the music direction in the films outside Filmistan. In 1947, he did two films outside Filmistan – ‘Chitor Vijay’ (1947) and ‘Dil Ki Rani’ (1947) both having Raj Kapoor and Madhubala as lead pairs. Neither the films fared well on the box office front nor did the songs become popular. The only point of interest in ‘Dil Ki Rani’ (1947) was that SD Burman made Raj Kapoor to sing in his own voice a song, O Duniya Ke Rehne Waalo Bolo Kahaan Gaya Chitchor.

Filmistan entrusted SD Burman with the music direction of ‘Do Bhai’ (1947). Sashadhar Mukherjee was a hard task master who rarely got satisfied with the tunes SD Burman composed for this film. Fed up with the constant rejections of tunes by Sashadhar Mukherjee, one day, SD Burman decided to have a show down with his boss. Probably after that he would think of leaving Filmistan and go back to Kolkata. To his surprise, Sashadhar Mukherjee at once approved the first tune he played on the harmonium and asked him record the song at the earliest. The song was Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya sung by Geeta Roy (later Dutt). This song made Geeta Roy a star playback singer overnight. The film was a box office success. For the first time, SD Burman heard his servant humming this song which made him very happy. In 1948, he composed songs from ‘Vidya’ (1948). It was his first film with Dev Anand and Suraiya. The film did not fare well on the box office but one song  Laayi Khushi Ki Duniya, picturised on Dev Anand and Suraiya, became very popular.

Filmistan’s ‘Shabnam’ (1949) can be regarded as SD Burman’s first real successful film as a music director as all the songs of the films became very popular. For SD Burman, it was one of his most satisfying period of his musical career as he found the songs of ‘Shabnam’ being heard on the street quite often. He even heard the labourers at Bandra Railway Station, singing one of the songs from this film in tandem with their track maintenance work.

In 1950s, SD Burman did not have much success as a music director. ‘Afsar’ (1950) was his first film for Navketan – a film production company started by Chetan Anand and Dev Anand. The film did not fare well at the box office although two songs – Naina Deewaane Ek Nahin Maane and Man Mor Huaa Matwaala became popular. ‘Pyaar’ (1950) also did not have a great run. SD Burman was now depressed that even after 5 years of his stint as a music director in Bombay film industry, he has not established himself as a successful music director. With this thought in mind, he decided to leave Mumbai and return to Kolkata.

At that time, Ashok Kumar was reviving Bombay Talkies by producing ‘Mashaal’ (1950) for which SD Burman was entrusted with the music direction. His leaving at a crucial juncture would have affected the film. After much persuasion by Ashok Kumar, SD Burman stayed back to complete the music direction of the film with a condition that after the completion of his work, he would return to Kolkata.

It so happened that ‘Mashaal’ (1950) became a box office hit film. Almost all the songs of the film became very popular. But it was Manna Dey’s song,  Upar Gagan Vishaal which drew attention of the common folk. With this song, Manna Dey seemed have announced that he had, at last, arrived in the world of Hindi film music. Manna Dey had worked as an Assistant Music Director for SD Burman but he got his first chance to sing under his baton only in ‘Mashaal’ (1950).

With the success of ‘Mashaal’ (1950), producers lined up for signing SD Burman for their films which included ‘Bahaar’ (1951), ‘Buzdil’ (1951), ‘Ek Nazar’ (1951), ‘Naujawaan’ (1951) and ‘Sazaa’ (1951). All these films had very popular songs some of which are still remembered today like Sainya Dil Mein Aana Re, Jhan Jhan Jhan Jhan Paayal Baaje, Thandi Hawaayen Lehra Ke Aayen and Tum Na Jaane Kis Jahaan Mein Kho Gaye.

But one film SD Burman  did in 1951 gave a tremendous boost to his career as a music director – it was Navketan’s ‘Baazi’ (1951). It was Guru Dutt’s first directorial venture. SD Burman’s musical treatment in this film was quite a contrast to what he had so far churned out. There were no Bengali traces in the songs. Instead, he predominantly used western and Punjabi beats. In fact, he turned Sahir Ludhinavi’s philosophical ghazal, Tadbeer Se Bigdi Huyi Taqdeer Banaa Le  into a seductive club song. All the songs of ‘Baazi’ (1951) became super hits. The success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) made SD Burman almost a permanent fixture with Navketan Banner until ‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973). By now, he had dropped the idea of shifting to Kolkata.

The musical success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) created a successful pair of Sahir Ludhianvi and SD Burman. During 1951-57, both of them created 138 songs in 18 films. Unfortunately, due to clash of egos, they did not work together after ‘Pyaasa’ (1957).

I will not go into further details of his successful films as they are in large numbers. But there are a few films which I consider as classic insofar as SD Burman’s music is concerned. They are ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954), ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), ‘Paying Guest’ (1957), ‘Kaala Paani’ (1958), ‘Sujata’ (1959), ‘Kaala Baazar’ (1960), ‘Bandini’ (1963) ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Aradhana’ (1969), ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970), ‘Sharmilee’ (1971), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971), and ‘Abhimaan’ (1973). But within these films, there were high points in SD Burman’s musical career – ‘Baazi’ (1951), ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Aradhana’ (1969) and ‘Abhimaan’ (1973).

During 1946 until his death in October 31, 1975 SD Burman composed music for 90 films (including one unreleased film) comprising 673 songs (666 songs if I exclude 7 songs from the unreleased film). This gives an annual average of 3 films. According to those who had closely worked with SD Burman, he would consider him to be ‘busy’ if he had two films on hand. He considered himself ‘very busy’ if he had 3 films on hand. He would not take any more musical assignments until he completed one of the three films on hand. So the annual average of 3 films are within the parameter he set for himself.

It was during the recording the song, Badi Sooni Sooni Hai Zindagi Ye Zindagi  from ‘Mili’ (1975) that SD Burman got paralytic attack and was shifted to Bombay Hospital. Later, RD Burman completed the recording of the song. What an irony! When Kishore Kumar was singing this song for recording, his mentor was in the hospital in deep coma. SD Burman remained in coma for the next 5 months until his end came on October 31, 1975.

Since the article has already become very lengthy, I propose to write a second part of the article covering some other aspects of SD Burman’s Hindi film music on his Remembrance Day on October 31, 2018. There are hundreds of anecdotes in the life of SD Burman – some known and some unknown to me – which makes his musical journey very interesting. While Gulzar called him ‘Prince of Music’, Pandit Hari Prasad Charasia referred him as ‘Sangeet Sant’ (Saint of Music). Kersi Lord, who worked with SD Burman as a drummer and later as an accordionist for a very long time, called him ‘an old man with a young heart’ insofar as his music was concerned. Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, the santoor player called SD Burman as a wonderful person with child-like innocence.

I will end this article with a statement that SD Burman was a music director who remained at the zenith of his musical career in Hindi film industry since the success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) until his death on October 31, 1975. Even 5 year hiatus with Lata Mangeshkar (1957-62) did not affect his musical career. Some of the films for which SD Burman composed music may have failed at the box office but his music did not fail.

On the occasion of 112th birth anniversary of SD Burman and 99th birth anniversary of Majrooh Sultanpuri, I present one of their creations from ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958). The film was produced by VL Narasu, a coffee plantation magnate from the South India. The film starred Ashok Kumar, Vyjayantimala, Jagdish Sethi, Johny Walker, Shammi, Iftekhar, Raja Sulochana, Leela Mishra, Manmohan Krishna etc.

The film seems to have jinxed from the very beginning. Gyan Mukherjee was originally assigned to direct the film. He had even completed musical sitting with SD Burman. The film went into shooting floor in 1956. However, Gyan Mukherjee fell ill and was diagnosed with brain tumour. He was also afflicted by Parkinson’s disease. He passed away in November 1956. Ashok Kumar had to rope in Satyen Bose to direct the film (As revealed by late Sachin Bhowmick and quoted in ‘SD Burman – The Prince Musician’ – Anirudh Bhattacharjee & Balaji Vittal (2018).

During the making of the film, SD Burman got into tiff with Lata Mangeshkar on the issue of re-recording of the song, Sainya Kaise Dhaaroon Dheer as he wished to record the song afresh with some changes in the tune. Since Lata was leaving for a foreign trip, she could not give him the date, nor she could commit to give a priority date on her return from the trip. This enraged SD Burman to such an extent that he stopped engaging Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer for the next 5 years. He got the above-mentioned song recorded in the voice of Asha Bhonsle. But she could not render the song the way S D Burman wanted. So he retained the originally recorded Lata version for the film. The remaining songs which were to be sung by Lata in the films were rendered by Asha Bhonsle (3) and Geeta Dutt (1).

After about 8 years from this incidence, SD Burman got his original wish fulfilled. Lata Mangeshkar recorded a song based on the tune of the song referred to above. The result was the culmination of a new song for the film ‘Guide’ (1965). The song was Mo Se Chhal Kiye Jaaye Dekho Sainya Beimaan. Incidentally, as I checked from the credit titles, Hiralal was one of the choreographers for both ‘Sitaaron Se Aage’ (1958) and ‘Guide’ (1965).

‘Sitaaron se Aage’ (1958) got delayed and finally released sometime in early 1958. The film was a musical extravaganza with Vyjayantimala performing a number of semi-classical dances in the film. A feature of the songs in this film was that  SD Burman used Western scores in a couple of songs like Chanda Ki Chaandni Ka Jaadoo and Mehfil Mein Aaaye Wo Aaj Dheere Se that sounded like waltz music.

So far 7 songs (out of 9 including one multiple version song) from this film have been covered in the Blog. I present the 8th song – ‘Aa Khilte Hain Gul, O Mere Bulbul’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song was written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and picturised on Vyjayantimala as a dance song. The song is not only melodious but rhythmic as well.

[Author’s Note: Some of the information on SD Burman’s early life and early musical career has been sourced from ‘SD Burman – The World of His Music’ by Khagesh Dev Burman (translated from Bengali by SK Ray Chaudhuri), 2013.]

# Superstar Child Artist – Jr. Mehmood # 4
————————————————–
(Rafi Sings for Jr. Mehmood # 3)
————————————-
Greetings to all for the ongoing ‘Ganesh Festival’…!!!

I have many fond memories of ‘Ganpati Utsav’ being held in our colony premises and the ‘various cultural programs’ held during the ‘ten-day’ festival.

For us children then, the main attractions were ‘Orchestras’, ‘Dramas’ and a ‘movie’ if at all it could be arranged and screened in open ground and where we used to watch it from either side of the screen.:)

Among the other programs like ‘orchestra’ and ‘drama’ which would be performed by artists coming from different locations there was also a ‘drama’ and ‘cultural program’ by artists from our colony and students from schools. I was always a part of the ‘drama’ team of juniors as a ‘performer’ and also was a part of the ‘seniors’ for ‘prompting’ behind the stage if some artist forgot the ‘dialogues’. My voice was suitable for that purpose at that time. 🙂

That reminds me of one of my friends who used to do mimicry of Mehmood and Junior Mehmood on stage during such programs. And that also reminds me of ‘the musical nights being held that time with some special star also performing therein’. But, since such programs would be held at the city about 25/30 kms from the place we were staying then, it was not possible for us children to attend such programs.

Junior Mehmood was among the ‘star performer’ in those years and that reminder bring us to this fourth article in the series of articles covering songs performed by or picturized on Junior Mehmood and lip synced by him on screen in Hindi Movies.

Initially I started this series discussing the songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood and the following two songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood have been discussed earlier;

1) Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey (Rivaaz)(1972)

2) Na Koi Paisa Na Ilm Banaao Bambai Mein Film (Bansi Birju) (1972)

Thereafter we extended this series to cover the songs sung by other singers (mainly female singers, I think so 🙂 ) for Junior Mehmood. And those songs which are yet to be discussed on the blog.

Thus, we have the following song as the third post in this series which was posted on 15th November, 2017;

3) Mera Naam Hai Mehmood.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Tanhaai-1972’.

‘Tanhaai-1972’ was ‘S.B. Films’ presentation, directed by Jagdish Nirula for ‘Chitrashala, Bombay’. This film was produced by S.I. Shivadasani.

It had Rehana Sultan, Anil Dhawan, Shatrughan Sinha, Jagdev, Lakshmi Chhaya, Iftekhar, Poornima, Dulia, Randhir, Baby Chintu, Lalita Kumari, Jankidas, Moolchand, Arpana, Master Shahid, Jagdish Raj, Kirti, Madhu, Jery, Bhola
And Mehmood Junior.

The movie introduced Ashok Khanna.

Story & Screenplay of this film was by Sadhram Sapru. Its dialogues were written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Editing for this movie was done by Govind Dalwadi.

Its music was composed by Usha Khanna and the four songs of this film were penned by Asad Bhopali – three songs and Amanullah Khan Aman – one song.

The film had three solo songs- two by Asha Bhonsle, one by Kishore Kumar which has already been discussed here, and one song sung by Mohd Rafi, Usha Khanna (and Junior Mehmood (as per HFGK), however the titles of this movie did not mention the name of Junior Mehmood under ‘Playback’.

The film was passed by Censor Board on 23rd October’1972.

As per the filmography of Jr. Mehmood available on various sources on the internet he acted in many movies since his first release to this movie “Tanhaai-1972”.
However, these sources where his filmography has been mentioned does not mention the name of this movie ‘Tanhaai-1972’ in their list. (So, the complete list of his movies/filmography needs to checked and authenticated to have accurate number of movies if we need to discuss them year wise.)

Also, till the release of this movie “Tanhaai-1972” Junior Mehmood was a part of many movies which were successful at the box office and he was seen in many Rajesh Khanna movies like ‘Do Raaste-1969’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna-1970’, ‘Kati Patang-1970’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi-1971’, ‘Chhoti Bahu-1971’, ‘Dil Daulat Duniya-1972’ and other movies.

I had mentioned in my earlier post and many of us are aware of that Junior Mehmood shot to fame from the ‘1968 movie – Brahmachari’ where he performed on Mehmood’s famous ‘ham kaale hain to kya huaa dilwaale hain’ from ‘Gumnaam-1965’’.

He repeats once again performing on Mehmood’s famous ‘mehbooba mehbooba bana leo mujhe dulha’ from ‘Saadhu Aur Shaitaan-1968’ in the movie ‘Johar Mehmood in Hong Kong-1971’ where on screen he performs in the presence of his guru Mehmood and I.S.Johar. (Peevesie’s Mom ji have recently discussed this song from ‘Saadhu Aur Shaitaan-1968’ on the blog).

Mehmood Fans and moviegoers are well aware of Mehmood’s – ‘Kapoor’s three generation act- Prithviraj, Raj and Randhir, in the song ‘Ye kaisa aayaa zamaanaa…’, in the movie ‘Hamjoli-1970’.

Surprisingly this song is yet to be posted on the blog. (may be Mehmood fans in the group are aware and want to give us a surprise 🙂 )

Junior Mehmood tried to repeat a similar act in the song ‘birhaa ki rain’ which is being presented here today.

Taking inspiration from the above song from ‘Hamjoli-1970’ and continuing his ‘genius’ further, and in fact going a step further of his Guru Mehmood, Junior Mehmood did this ‘four roles’ (additionally enacting a female artist, Aruna Irani, I guess…) act in today’s song.

Initially I had planned this song post to be shared in Oct’15 and it was then that the first draft of this article was prepared, however later it got delayed and the song from the movie ‘Baalak-1969’ was posted.

I have not watched this movie ‘Tanhaai-1972’, however our beloved Raja Saab had mentioned of watching this movie in his post presenting the first song from this movie – ‘saawan mein kahin aag na lag jaaye chaman ko’ on the blog.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Blog Day : 3620 Post No. : 14427

16th June is the birthday of the disco dancer who had to struggle a lot in his career initially. But then “sabr’ ka phal meetha hota hai” and his stars changed after the success of B. Subhash’s “Disco Dancer” in 1982.

We are today wishing Gourang Chakraborty a.k.a Mithun Chakravarty on his 68th birthday.

He was a graduate from FTII and was the national award winner for his debut movie “Mrigaya” (1976) which was a Mrinal Sen direction. Then followed a spate of successful and semi-successful movies “Suraksha”, “Wardat”, “Wanted”, “Pyar Jhukta Nahi”, “Prem Vivah” etc. The last 2 named showcased him in characters that were diametrically opposite to what he played in the action-packed “Suraksha”, “Wardat” (a sequel to Suraksha) & “Wanted”. All these movies made him dear to those producers who couldn’t afford big stars like Amitabh Bachchan etc., as most of his successful movies were low-budget films to start off but in raked in the moolah at the Box-Office and that is what matters in the final analysis. The success of “Disco Dancer” went on to endorse his style of acting and dancing and youngsters copy his style to this day. He must have done close to 100 movies in the 90s itself in spite of it being the period when the Khans were on their upward movement. The turn of the millennium saw him in supporting roles that were comic, villainous, benevolent etc.

Rohit Shetty’s “Golmaal 3” had him re-visiting his “Disco Dancer” where he danced the song that made him popular. It was re-recorded and reshot with a few changes- the original was a stage song; this one was in a discotheque. And after the song we have a typical Indian film scene where the heroines’ rich father asks him to forget the girl in exchange for money & the self-respecting (swabhimaani) hero refuses to take the money. All-in-all a hilarious tribute to everything that Bollywood and Indian movies showcase.

Todays’ song from “Disco Dancer” is sung by Vijay Benedict written by Anjaan and music is by Bappi Lahiri. Kamal and Suresh Bhatt were the choreographers for the movie. People say that this song changed Bappida’s fortunes. Also though there are many who will cry that this movie and its songs changed the face of Bollywood music. But I will not get into that debate here. Let us all just say Happy birthday Mithunda. 🙂

Hullo Atuldom

Back to writing after a gap of 3 weeks. Lovely three weeks. Spent among the hills of North- East India and South India. Must thank my nephew for insisting that I accompany them. If the Himalayas and its snow-clad peaks are a heavenly sight so are the mountain ranges of the Nilgiris in the south – the common feature being acres of tea gardens. For the second weekend outing to the Nilgiris, I hold my son and niece responsible.

Trust humans to spoil a good thing. Where there was a lot of discipline among the locals at both places; tourists have ruined Ooty as much as say Lonavla, Khandala or Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra. Thankfully Sikkim has not faced much tourist onslaught and so is much cleaner. The air in these hill stations are so pollution free one doesn’t feel like returning to pavilion and the reality of daily routine. I am sure our Sadanand ji will be nodding in agreement being an avid traveller and having visited many such pristine locations. Hope I am right?

More about my travels some other time, I will get straight to the topic of this post.

This post is to wish the lady with the dazzling smile a very happy birthday. Unbelievable that she turned 51 yesterday. The dancer who out-dances her co-star without meaning to and effortlessly at that. But she is not all song and dance only; she is great in exhibiting all emotions with her eyes, face and voice. Just like the heroines of yesteryear, specially Madhubala, with whom she used to be constantly compared. Yes yes. I am speaking of Madhuri Dixit (now Nene). Having made her debut in movies through the 1984 Rajshri Productions ‘Abodh’ and tasting success with ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, etc. she made a place for herself among the top-ranked heroines of Bollywood. Her teaming with Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Jackie Shroff (all the reigning stars of that period) was well received by the audiences. In the later half of the 90s she also teamed successfully with the 3Khans. She was lucky to have roles written specially for her as in Prakash Jha’s ‘Mrityudand’ and MF Hussain’s ‘Gaja Gamini’.

As much as I love Madhuri and her movies with their songs and dances, there are some songs of her’s which I don’t approve of. For example, her song in the movie ‘Anjaam’ – “Athraa Baras Ki Kunwaari Kali Thi. . . Choodi Tooti Chane Ke Khet Mein” or the song from ‘Khalnayak’ – “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”; and then there is ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya O Ram ji” in ‘Yaarana’ or even “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” from ‘Beta’. All these songs and some more of that type, which made Madhuri Dixit a dancing-star, are full of double meanings and were lapped up by the public. But there also is a greater number of Madhuri songs which are just as popular and have more ‘decent’ lyrics. For example, “Didi Tera Devar Deewana”, and her songs from ‘Devadas’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Sangeet’ etc. (no, I am not going to list her filmography here 🙂 ). The song with this post is one such song.

It is from Rajkumar Santoshi’s 2000 release ‘Pukaar’ (making a debut on the blog).  The main cast of this film is Madhuri with Anil Kapoor and Namrata Shirodkar and a supporting cast of Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Rohini Hattangadi, KD Chandran, Neeraj Vora, Danny and Prabhu Deva (just for a song). It is a well-made film based on espionage in the army and had a love triangle added for spice which gives the central characters a lot of scope to showcase their ‘sacrificing attitudes’. The songs are penned by Javed Akhtar and AR Rehman is the composer. This song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Kavita Krishnamurty. It is a stage show to celebrate some event in the army cantonment. The song shows Madhuri decently matching steps to Prabhu Deva’s vigorous dance. Anil Kapoor, Namrata and the other members of the cast are in the audience which join in towards the song’s climax.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Madhuri!

“Dillagi”(1978) was Produced by Kanwar Ajit Singh andBikram Singh Dehal and directed by Basu Chatterjee for BikramJeet Films International, Bombay. This movie had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Mithu Mukherjee, Devan Verma, Asrani, Urmeela Bhatt, Ritu Kamal, Preeti Ganguly, Kajri, Anjali Paigankar, Manjita,Poornima Jairam, Dulari, Lalita Kumari, Rajan Kapoor,Shobhana Shah,Geetanjali,Manik Chowdhury,Guffi Paintal, Qamar Khan, Bina Bawa etc in it with Friendly appearance by Keshto Mukherjee and Brahmachari and unfriendly Special appearance by Shatrughan Sinha. 🙂

It was described as a “social” movie but it was a romantic comedy bordering on soft erotica. That is what I felt about this movie when I watched it in 1978 (duly bunking my college 🙂 ).

I was perhaps a bit too young and immature for a movie with this story line at that time. With the benefit of hindsight, now I feel that it is a nice movie to be watched with one’s lover/ spouse, rather than a movie to be watched with one’s siblings/ parents etc.

The movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these songs :-

Baadal to aaye lahra ke chhaaye 14234 4-Apr-18

With time, the movie, and moreso its songs have ended up becoming obscure.

The fourth and final song, the song under discussion is perhaps the most obscure out of the four songs of the movie. This song is sung by Lata and Nitin Mukesh. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song is picturised as a romantic stage performance song on Hema Malini and Dharmendra dressed like Shakuntala and Dushyanta, immortalised by Kalidas in his Sanskrit epic “Abhigyan Shakuntala”. Lyrics by Yogesh are in pure Sanskritised Hindi, as befitting the genre, and they sound quite appropriate for the picturisation.

Mithu Mukherjee, Preeti Ganguly, Poornima Jairam etc are also visible in the picturisation as backstage support persons. 🙂

Lyrics of this song as well as other details were provided by Prakashchandra, who informed me that the audio version of the song is longer than the video version.

With this song, “Dillagi”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Bandhe Haath”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Picturisation shos that it is a “tribal” dance song. A “tribal” dance song in Hindi consists of skimpily dressed dancers, wearing strange outfits / masks etc that are vaguely of African or Red Indian origin.

The main female dancer is a skimpily clad Mumtaz who makes sure that the movie makers save money hiring a Helen or Padma Khanna for this dance sequence. She alongwith other similarly dressed females perform this dance in the presence of a housefull auditorium.

Whenever such performances take place in a Hindi movie, one can be rest assured that baddies would be swarming the place. This song is no exception. We find a galaxy of baddies, led by Ajit, Madan Puri etc marking their attendance. They are looking for Amitabh Bachchan, who like the baddies would invariably find himself in the vicinity of such a dance performance.

SAmitab Bachchan may be hiding in the outfit of a Sheikh, but he cannot escape from Ajit’s eagle eyes, who then passes on the intelligence to his minions as well as a policeman (Ram Mohan ?). What is the standard way in which our Hindi movie heroes try to hide from the baddies ? The join the dance performance. How an uninvited dancer can join in the performance and how the back stage organisers allow this to happen is something that we will never know. And how the hero is aware of the lyrics as well as the corrrect dance steps for the dance is also something that is a mystery to all. This supposedly disguised hero then lip syncs and dances loudly and quite prominently which is their standard attempt to hide from the baddies. :).

That is not all, we find another disguised dancer (O P Ralhan ?) joining in, no doubt easily dodging the back stage managers to the performance, and he too starts to sing and dance loudly. In his part of the song and dance, he “discreetly” passes on the information that baddies are in hot pursuit of him.

It all sounds quite silly really, but we are so used to such dance performances that we do not bat out eyelids. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the people who are visible in the picturisation of this song.

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

Here is the fourth song from “Aankh Michauli”(1962) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Though the singer is credited as Lata, it appears to me that the voice sounds a bit different, may be like Usha Mangeshkar. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the voice. Other Lata songs in the movie , which are picturised on Mala Sinha, sound properly Lata like to me.

The song is picturised as a stage performance song on a lady who is not Mala Sinha. Going by the cast, the only name that I can think of for the dancer is Kusum Thakkar. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.
