The journey continues … with many miles to go …

‘जिस तरह सुबह के बाद शाम ढलती है, रात होती है, फिर सुबह आती है. आज का डूबा हुआ सूरज कल फिर नयी किरणें लेकर आता है, एक नयी भोर का सन्देश, नया उत्साह और नयी उमंग के साथ. उसी तरह आज जो रेल-गाडी रात को गुज़रती है वो सुबह फिर किसी स्टेशन पर आती है – सवेरे वाली गाडी बन कर’, नए जोश और नए उत्साह के साथ …

And here it arrives … our musical bandwagon …Wishing you all a very ‘Happy New Year-2021’!!!
Let us all be safe, healthy, peaceful and enjoying music wherever we are!!!

We start our journey with this lovely song which is saying ‘din pyaar ke aayenge’ and though here the expressions are of a lover for her love, the message we wish to convey is for all of us or rather for all on this globe – the mankind, the humanity, the nature, the environment, and for our ecological existence. Let the love blossoms and we all enjoy our stay here and do good for others as possible.

Trains have been part of our movies since long and there are many song sequences and scenes picturised on the trains or having trains at the back drop. It will be interesting to study those movies and how effectively trains/railways have been used in various movies. I had started to note down some movie names and looking for this subject landed me on this article here.

It was only during the ‘pandemic’ that this ‘lifeline of the nation’ was stopped, and passenger services had to be discontinued. It never happened earlier in the history of this nation not even during the ‘war’ period.
But now gradually things are coming back to normal and I wish that the ‘normal’ is restored soon in the months to come.

Let us hope that this ‘lifeline of the Nation’ is back to full swing again.

I have always loved the ‘train journeys’ since my childhood and even now I feel it very nostalgic to visit railway stations and travel by train. I wonder, if I still have these feelings that I am excited to see the trains, how the peoples who are staying in the hills and still have not travelled by train or not seen them would feel if they get this opportunity.

Let us also contribute to the safety our ‘lifeline’ and care for its assets. Let us protect it and discourage those who try to damage this national property.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song composed by Pancham Da who have given us some gems of trains songs viz. ‘zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hai jo makaam’ and others. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.
This is from the ‘1986’ movie ‘Sawere Waali Gaadi’ … ‘din pyaar ke aayenge sajaniyaa’

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 99
———————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz 15 December 2010) was a wednesday, viz middle of the week. I was based at Nagpur. After initial struggle early in the year for settling down, I began to post songs at an average of 5 songs a day from
July 2010 onwards. Then there was a temporary slowdown in November 2010. I picked up pace again in december 2010. I notice that I had covered as many as seven songs on 15 december 2010. This was one of the seven occasions in the month when I posted as many as seven articles in a day. The first post appeared at 7:13 AM and the seventh at 9:27 AM. That is the kind of productivity I was capable of ten years ago. ! 🙂

Here is the list of the songs covered that day:-

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

21/10/2020 – 89th Birth anniversary of Shammi Kapoor
————————————————————————

I have in possession for almost a year now, a book titled “Rafinaama” by Isaak Mujawar. One day I just impulsively looked up the book availability on Amazon, and found that only two copies were available. I just ordered it without thinking anything. When the book arrived, then I realized that it was in Marathi. Even for self-proclaimed “kitaabi keeda” like me, sitting down reading it has proven a challenge. Which, I am yet to seriously take up.

Two days ago, I suddenly occurred to me, I am having these books and I should make use of the articles there for writing the various posts. The first book I encountered, for sheer visibility and the size of it, is “eh un dinon ki baat hai” – Urdu Memoirs of Cinema Legends (selected and translated by Yasir Abbasi). So for two days, I have been going through that book.

Since this Shammi Kapoor post is due to be written, I had finalized the song and lyrics are also ready. But the book does not contain anything about Shammi Kapoor and his career. I found “Rafinaama” next, in the drawer that I have kept for such treasures 🙂 never to be seen and touched by anyone.

And lo and behold, I have selected a Rafi song from the film Laila Majnu(1953) for posting on the 89th birth anniversary of Shammi Kapoor and Rafinaama starts with the chapter titiled “Shammi, Rishicha majnucha aawaaj” meaning “majnu’s voice for Shammi and Rishi”.

I am giving a brief roundup of the chapter here :

“Films on Laila Majnu title have been made in hindi film industry in 1922, 1931(2 Movies), 1945, 1953 and 1976. The “Laila Majnu” of 1922 was silent movie and the rest were talkies. Two more movies on the same characters story was differently titled, first “Daastaan-e-Laila Majnu” in 1973 and “Love and God” in 1986. Rafi Sahab’s songs were there in all these movies since 1945. In the 1945 version Rafi sahab has sung two songs but none were actually on Majnu’s character.”

The above chapter in the book says that Rafi’s voice was Majnu’s voice in 1953 film, which is incorrect. Among the 4 songs which Rafi Sahab sang for this three are already posted in the blog. In “Bhar de jholi Allah naam” Rafi sahab’s has sung in 3-4 different voices for different characters, but when Shammi Kapoor comes in line and sings, it’s Talat Mehmood’s voice for him. In the song “Aankhon mein hai tu”, Shammi Kapoor in watching the qawwali being performed, he is not singing at all. Third posted is “Mil gayaa taqdeer se chashmaa yehaan”is a solo Rafi song played in the background during the titles.

The songs posted are listed below:

Song Date posted Remarks
Ae sanam ye zindagi aayi hai lekar khushi 18 December 2010
Aasmaan waale teri duniyaa se jee ghabraa gayaa 28 May 2011
Chal diyaa kaarwaan lut gaye ham yahaan 7 June 2011
Aankhon mein hai tu 3 July 2011
Yaad teri zindagi ka saaz ban kar reh gayi 23 July 2011
Bahaaron ki duniya pukaare tu aa jaa 9 April 2012 MD-Sardar Malik
Ya ilaahi ho mubaarak tujhko ye tera jahaan 10 april 2012
Dekh lee ae ishq teri 24 May 2012 MD-Sardar Malik
Bhar de jholi Allah naam 14 February 2013
Mere sarkaar tere ishq ki duniya ko salaam 25 March 2013
Mil gaya taqdeer se chashmaa yahaan 6 March 2017

The fourth Rafi song from this film is the song of the current post. It is a very short and rapid solo which is played in the background as Laila and Majnu, Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, both die lying in the desert and the sand covers them gradually. This must be the end of the film. So the film is starting and ending with a Rafi song background song. Composer is Ghulam Mohammad and lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni.

This is 12th song to be posted from this film. One more song which is listed/included in the list of this films’ songs is actually not from this film, but this song posted here from another Shammi Kapoor film Chor Bazar (1954), with Sardar Malik’s music. So that means this movie has 13 songs and only one song remains to Yippee this movie. Remaining song is also a special one with Shamshad Begum giving playback to Master Jadeep. (I will try and get this post shortly).

There are a few more chapters dealing with Shammi Kapoori majnu type songs style which were sung by Rafi sahab, and subsequent Shammi Kapoor clones who tried to adopt the same style. The author is of the opinion that the Shammi style of songs which became famous as “yahoo” style did not originate with Junglee and Shankar-Jaikishan, rather the origin can be found in the songs of film “Tum sa nahin dekha” by O. P. Nayyar.

Shammi Kapoor started his film career with 6 films in 1953. He was the son of Prithvi Raj Kapoor and brother of Raj Kapoor, who was well on his way to be a stalwart film maker by then. But Shammi Kapoor must have set out to make his career on his own, there was no official launching by R. K. Films. His filmography lists 146 films from 1953 – 2011. Rockstar 2011 being the last film in which he acted. Up to Andaz 1971, I counted 56 movies of his which include many memorable musical extravaganzas with Rafi sahab’s playback under Shankar-Jaikishan, O.P. Nayyar and R. D. Burman. Early 50’s when he started as a hero, I can see, that the favoured voice for the hero was not Rafi. Rafi was the voice of everyone else in the some films but not the hero. But Naushad Sahab had used Rafi for all songs on Dilip Kumar in ‘Aan” & “Deedar” and for Bharat Bhushan in “Baiju Bawra”. Or it is possible some of them felt insecure, that Rafi’s singing could over shadow them in popularity. Truly, his phenomenal singing was capable was running away with the credits for all the success of film and its music. Naushad was too big before even “Baiju Bawra”, so could maybe whither the onslaught. Other big personalities who were not so big in early 50’s could have felt insecure. We should be glad that, this type of misapprehensions, if existing, were unable to keep Rafi sahab down for long. If a star shines too bright then its neighbors can be forgiven for being apprehensive.

By any account there must be around 180 songs which Rafi sahab sang for Shammi Kapoor, beginning with “Shama Parwaana” with this unforgettable song. This is a definite Rafi-Shammi song with the definite nuances of “Majnu”’and traces of “wehshat zada ishq”, as the curtain behind which Surraiya is listening to the song, is burnt. Such is the effect of Rafi sahab and Shammi Kapoor’s singing. In this film, seen on TV long ago, Rafi sahab has 5 songs including 3 duets with Suraiyya. There is no other male singer here, so all songs sung by Shammi Kapoor were by Rafi sahab.


Song-Milne ki hasrat mein betaabi ke saath (Laila Majnu)(1953) Singer-Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

Milne ki hasrat mein
betaabi ke saathh
reh gaye phailaa ke haay
donon haathh
phool do din hans ke
jee behlaa gaye
aur ye gunche ae
bin khile murjhaa gaye
aaye thehre aur guzre
qaafile
phir na aise
chaahne waale mile ae
maut se kyun
ishq sharmindaa rahe
qais o laila
mar ke bhi zindaa rahe
qais o laila
mar ke bhi zindaa rahe

Today’s song is from the film Alakh Niranjan-1950. This film is based on a story from Nath – Puran. In India, the Nath Sampraday (Sect) is spread over the whole country. In every place it has its local name and own folk lores. Now, what is this Nath Sampraday ? Few years ago, in one of posts, i had given all detailed information about it. To refresh your memory and for the benefit of new readers, here is a short note again on Nath Sampraday.

In the Hindu Sanaatan traditions the worship of Lord Shiva is called Shaivism and the worshippers and followers of Lord Shiva are called Shaivs. Nath Sampradaay is a sub tradition within Shaivism. The followers of this tradition consider Adinath or Lord Shiva as their first Lord. The word Nath implies Master. In this tradition, there is a lineage of nine Gurus or Teachers. The form of sadhna practiced by the followers of this tradition is called Hath Yog (हठ योग).

The first Guru in this lineage is Matsyendra Nath, who is better known as Machhindra Nath. The traditional history recounts that Matsyendra was born under an inauspicious star. This warranted his parents to throw the baby into the ocean. In the ocean the baby was swallowed by a large fish, and he lived and grew up inside the belly of the fish, for many years. The fish swam to the bottom of the ocean where Lord Shiva was imparting the secrets of yoga to Mata Parvati. Matsyendra overheard this discourse and learnt the secrets of yoga. He began to practice this yog sadhana inside the fish’s belly. After twelve years he finally emerged as an enlightened Siddha.

There is a list of Nine Nath Gurus, who are called Navnath. The first Nath Guru is Machhindra. The complete list is as follows

Machhindranath
Gorakhnath
Jalandhar Nath
Kanif Nath (Kanhoba)
Gahini Nath
Raja Bhartrihari Nath (Bharthari)
Revan Sidha Nath
Charpati Nath
Naag Nath

The stories surrounding every Nath Guru, especially the earlier ones, are very exciting, thrilling and entertaining. One must read them from the original Nath Puraan or NavNath Pothi. I have read all of them. These stories are in no way less than any Arabian Night stories. Due to their entertainment value, several films in several languages have been made on the early Gurus like Machhindranath and Gorakhnath.

Films on Machhindranath were made as ‘Maaya Machhindra’ in Hindi, in 1932, 1951, 1960 and 1975. Films on Gorakhnath as ‘Alakh Niranjan’, were made in 1940, 1950 and 1975. Films on Bharthari were made in 1932 and 1944. Films on other Naths were made as ‘Raja Gopichand’ in 1933, 1938 and 1950. Same way films on Naths in Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati and other languages were also made.

Film Alakh Niranjan-50 is a story from Bengal, where Raja Gopichand was ruling. Alakh Niranjan is the call, which a Gosavi gives, when he visits a house for his daily Bhiksha. These Gosavis do not accept cooked food. They take only the raw material, as they are supposed to cook and eat. I remember, when I was a kid and used to visit my Nanihal ( a small village in Marathwada, Maharashtra), few Gosavis used to visit the house and call out loudly “Alakh Niranjan”.It was my duty to give them the wheat or Jowar flour, which they would smilingly store in their multi-pocketed Zolis. Nowadays, even in the remotest villages, one cant find these Gosavis.

The film was directed by a veteran of the silent films – Dada Gunjal. The younger generation is unlikely to have even heard about him, because he ended his career in 1959 only. Director Vishnupant Mathaji Gunjal or simply Dada Gunjal, was born in Kolhapur on 25-1- 1904. He was not interested in education, so after passing his Matriculation, he joined the film industry. Initially he worked in various capacities, but concentrated on Directing the films. He established his own Gunjal Production company at Bombay and directed his first silent film Collegian in 1929. Soon ,realising that producing films was not his cake, he shifted to Directing films for Vishwesh film company, Bombay. Making silent films like Bharati, The Bandit, Vijeta, Bewafa qatil, khabardar, Bhedi khanjar etc.

When Talkie films started, he directed Bhakta ke Bhagwan and Ambarish in 1934. Dada Gunjal directed in all 37 films ( 30 Talkie and 7 Silent). Some of his films were, Bhakta dhruv, Panihari,Aparadhi, Ekadashi, Mata, Mamta, Tulsi, Bhakta ke Bhagwan, Noorjehan, Baraat, Kirti, Pati patni, Alakh Niranjan, Mother India -1938 etc. His last film was Ek Armaan mera-59. Dada Gunjal died on 16-11- 1968.

The music director of this film was Premnath….a case of ‘ Same Name Confusion’ . He is often confused with actor Premnath and his films are credited to the actor’s filmography.

PREMNATH the Music Director was born on 5-7-1918 in Gujranwala,Punjab. He learnt music from experts in Amritsar,Multan and Lahore.He acted in films like Shahr-e-khamoshi and also sang in Sohni Mahiwal-1938.

After marriage,he moved to Bombay. His first film as a Music Director was Rangbhoomi-1946. In this film ,a novice Mohd. Rafi sang many songs for him. His other films were Dharti-47,Chandrahas-47,Sagar’s Pehla pyar-47. He then produced a film ” Chand sitare”-48 under the banner of Ravindra Art productions. Mukesh,Lata and Geeta Roy sang in it. In the film ‘Alakh Niranjan’-50,he used Mohd. Faruqi, Sulochana kadam and Rajkumari.

Premnath gave music to many films of Super pictures of Aspy Irani like Bade Bhaiya-51 and Maya Machhindra-51, in which Surendra, Geeta,Rafi and Shamshad sang. His another film ‘Qatil kaun’ in late 50s was not released. For this film, Rafi, Asha, Manna Dey, Mubarak Begum and Shamshad had given songs.

His films diminished. Sati Vaishalini-59,Main hoon jaadugar-65 and Tarzan in Fairyland-68 were his last films.
After he stopped work as MD,he devoted his time for the welfare of Cine Artists as a trade union leader. As a Secretary,he served the music Directors Assn. for 30 years.

He died on 27-4-1993 at the age of 75 years.

The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Durga Khote, Ulhas, Sapru etc etc. There were 10 songs in the film. Today’s song is the third song here. It is sung by singer Mohammed Faruqi. In fact today’s song is the last song that he sang to end his singing career.

Mohammed Hussain Farooqi,the singer may not be known to many of our readers.

Mohd.Farooqi was born on 17-8-1915 at jhunjhunu in Rajasthan. He was keen on Music from childhood,but his religious Haji father was against it,as he wanted him to become a Teacher.

In 1945,Farooqi came to Bombay with a letter for Khemchand Prakash(originally from Rajasthan).He stayed in old khar with a friend.After an year KP called him to his house.When Farooqi went there,K.L.Saigal was also sitting there.KP asked him to sing a song.He sang Saigal’s ‘So ja rajkumari so ja’.Saigal was impressed and he was employed by Ranjeet Movietone on a princely monthly salary of 200 rupees.
He got his first break with ‘Chcheen lo Azaadi-1947.His song ‘kamzoronki nahi hai duniya’ was popular with freedom fighters.
He sang 15 songs in 12 movies, all with Bulo.C Rani and Hansraj Behl only. His voice and style became very popular,but he had to return to Rajasthan to look after ailing father and his huge property there. He never came back after 1950 and died on 8-2-1990 peacefully.

Aadmi ki talaash
———————————–

abhi mara nahin zindaa hai aadmi shaayad
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
badan ki andhi guphaa mein chhupa hua hogaa
badha ke haathh
har ek raushni ko gul kar do
hawaayen tez hain jhande lapet kar rakh do
jo ho sake to unn aankhon pe pattiyan kas do
na koyi paaon ki aahat
na saanson ki awaaz
daraa huaa hai woh
kuchh aur bhi na dar jaaye
badan ki andhhi guphaa se na kuchh kar jaaye
yahin kahin use dhoondho
wo aaj sadiyon baad
udaas udaas hai
khaamosh hai
akelaa hai
na jaane kab koyi pasli phadak utthe us ki
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
barh anaho to use phir libaas pehnaa do
andheri aankhon mein sooraj ki aag dehkaa do
bahut badi hai yeh basti kahin bhi dafnaa do
abhi maraa nahin
zinda hai aadmi shaayad

Duniya jise kehte hainjaadu kaa Khilona hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai

Nida Fazli , full name Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli (12 October 1938 to 8 February 2016) is referring to the mesmerising charm of all things worldly and the fickle mindedness of the self, which keeps hankering after the things not gained, which may or may not be within reach.

The name ‘Nida’ means “to call”. In easy urdu /hindi it would mean “pukaar”. I had considered this name for my daughter. But I was dissuaded from this name, due to the meaning being so ambiguous. Because a call could be happy and good as the “Azaan”, or it could also be a call for attention is bad times or when one is in difficulty or desperation i.e. pukaar.

Here a song from the 1981 film “Aahistaa aahistaa” as part of for ‘dheere dheere songs’ series, written by Nida Fazli. This is a melodious composition by Khayyam. I am including ‘aahistaa aahistaa” in this series as it essentially means the same as ‘dheere dheere”.

Three songs from this movie have been covered in the blog so far :-

Song Date posted
Kabhi kisi ko muqqammal jahaan nahin miltaa 31 july 2010
Maana teri nazar mein 9 July 2012
Jab koi khwaab chamakta hai haqeeqat ban ke 31 july 2020

Padmini Kolhapure and Kunal Kapoor are singing this song on screen. This was a complicated story, I think based on a novel, with Shammi Kapoor and Nanda being the older generation and host of other actors in the cast.

Here is a duet by Asha Bhonsle and Anwar, as a tribute to Poet Nida Fazli on his birth anniversary.

Blog Day : 4468 Post No. : 15961

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

10/10/2020 – 66th birthday of Rekha
——————————————————-

Today it is the birthday of Rekha, full name Bhanurekha Ganeshan. Some do refer to her as indian “Greta Garbo” for being elusive. However in this era of snooping social media and swooping television media, if someone of her status and lifetime experiences, wants to be a recluse, thumbs up to her. In her time she has been called “Jane Fonda” of India as well for her efforts to resurrect herself as the style icon of the industry. She is remembered for her many memorable characters enacted on the screen.

Back in the 80’s, we the impressionable teenagers, used to hang on to her photos and interviews in magazines. The new generation hasn’t heard of magazines, and google will probably say ‘bullets’, the ones needed to put in the guns, so they can fire. I know about my children, they haven’t experienced the passion and craze for magazines like we did, be it film, sports, politics or finance. I can report that I have spent my hard earned money on all the categories, fortnightly, monthly and weekly.

Yes, back to Rekha and magazine covers. I recall her on one such cover holding the black lady in her hand. Now that I checked, she has 4 filmfare awards of best actress for Khoobsurat & Khoon Bhari Maang, supporting actress in Khilaadiyon ke Khilaadi and last Life time achievement award in 2003. The “K” factor seems to have worked well for her. She used to appear in all the Filmfare award functions as the style icon, often wearing the hyderabadi “Khada dupatta” in its different avatars.

This is the Wikipedia pageWikipedia page on Rekha for more information about her. As per imdb site she has worked in 190 films between 1966 & 2018, having started as a child artist.

The song I have chosen to post today is ‘Raaste pyar ke” 1982, where she was a part of a love triangle with Shabana Azmi and Jeetendra. The gist of the story is Shabana and Rekha are best friends and they both fall in love with Jeetendra. Rekha decides to sacrifice her love for her friend, but then Shabana also finds out about the sacrificial intentions of Rekha and takes measures so that she falls sick and dies in the end, I am not sure. The measure is not a suicide attempt, but eating a lot of ‘green challis”. Jeetenda has not much say in these proceedings.

One song from the film is already posted.

The song under discussion is a nice solo by Lata Mangeshkar, also the title song. The team of Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi do a job in this situational song.

Song-Tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe raaste pyaar ke (Raaste Pyaar Ke)(1982) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Mit gayeen hazaaron jawaaniyan
mit gayeen hazaaron jawaniyan
deni padi jinhen qurbaniyan
jinhe qurbaniyan
yaad aati hain unn ki kahaaniyan
kahaaniyan
zindagi ne jinhe
chhoda maar ke
maar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke ae
raaste pyaar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke
kya pataa kaun kab kahaan
baitth jaaye thhak haar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke

zakhmon ke nishaan silte nahin
silte nahin
zakhmon ke nishaan silte nahin
yaadon ke chaman khilte nahin
bichhde to phir kahin milte nahin
do panchhi kabhi ik daar ke ae
ik daar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke

faisla ye hamen manzoor hai
faisla ye hamen manzoor hai
faasla ye hamen manzoor hai
apni manzil bahot hi door hai
bahot hi door hai
ruk gaye ham kisi ko pukaar ke ae
pukaar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke ae
raaste pyaar ke

iss muhobbat ke qaabil ham nahin
iss muhobbat ke qaabil ham nahin
ham nahin
ham ko apnaa zara bhi gham nahin
koyi khush ho khushi yeh kam nahin
ham chale raat gham ki guzaar ke
guzaar ke
tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe lambe
raaste pyaar ke
raaste pyaar ke
kya pataa kaun kab kahaan
baithh jaaye thak haar ke
thhak haar ke ae
thhak haar ke

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 103 # In Remembrance – Hasrat Jaipuri & Mahendra Kapoor #
——————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from a debutant movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’. I was longing to introduce this movie on the blog since long but was not able to locate its songs and they seem difficult to find. Now they are available uploaded since last year i.e. 2019. Thanks to the uploader.

‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Bhagyashri Productions, Bombay’. It was a ‘social movie’. It had Som Dutt, Komal, Kanhaiyalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Chaman Puri, Jayshree T., Renu, Sundar, Dhanraj Pahalwan, Rajnath, Bedi Sindhara, Lakshami Arya, Rajan Haksar, Uma Dutt, Y.N. Kapoor, Gopi Tak, Honey Irani, Master Ratan, Mehrunnisaa, Durga Khote and others.

This movie had six songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Sonik-Omi. Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, and Komal had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 09.11.1971.

17th September 2020 was the twenty-first Remembrance anniversary of Poet lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri (15.04.1922-17.09.1999). I was looking for a debutant movie then which has lyrics penned by him. However, I could not send my write-up then. Today we are going to introduce this movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein’ which have all songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri on the blog.

Today 27th September 2020 is the twelfth Remembrance anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor (09.01.1934-27.09.2008).

‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ has Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in five songs i.e. in all songs except except one song of the movie. He has sung two solo, two duets and one song having voice of three singers.

As a tribute to Hasrat Jaipuri and Mahendra Kapoor today we listen to this song from the movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ composed by Sonik-Omi.

Only audio of this song is available and I hope it is full song. Also, I think this movie must have been an obscure movie of its and its songs were forgotten easily.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy this song.

(As mentioned above with this song ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ makes its debut on the blog today. (Only ‘one’ movie from alphabet ‘D’ from 1917 remains to be launched now to cover launching of all ‘D’ movies of ‘1971’ on the blog 🙂 )

Dev Anand – 97th Birth Anniversary
—————————————————–
Dharamdev Pishorimal Anand (26 September 1923 – 3 December 2011), is the full name of the dashing, debonair yet chocolate hero of the 50’s, also nicknamed as the ever green actor, he was a hero, director, producer and what not. He is known for never say die attitude and being a gentleman of the old world sense. He formed a trio of superstars with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor in the black n white era.

He was like a shining star which kept shining when all his neighbour, were laid down by age, health and simply lack of motivation. In the old ways, the culture of the film industry was about respect of seniors, treating others including junior artists, with respect and values which were based on humanity and equality in opportunities etc. The background of Dev Anand is an educated family of means. Plus that was an erawhen people with means had rich tastes and it converted into their conduct and dealing with fellow human beings. I have no knowledge how charitable or not Dev Anand himself was, because charity is not just sharing of monetary wealth, but sharing of positivity and knowledge also amounts of charity. Of course, there are people with such meanness in their makeup they will not lift an eyebrow, to facilitate someone else. And if such a person did lift an eyebrow, and someone else was slightly benefitted from it, the former will not like it. Ah…. I don’t know where I am going with this, but this is not towards Dev Anand.

I have recently seen his movies, “Kaala Bazaar” “Manzil” and “Kaala Paani” on youtube. Other unforgettable movie are such classics as “Guide”, “Tere Ghar Ke Saamne , “Jewel theif”, etc. I have read the Wikipedia page on Dev Anand. As I read through it, things got curious, as there is not filmography there. Very few films are mentioned, some of them I am yet to see. Zeenat Aman finds a mention as being discovered by him, but there is no mention of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. Also I found amiss the mention of his brothers Vijay Anand and Chetan Anand who were instrumental in his life and career. No mention of his great equation with SDB-RDB and Kishore Kumar.

There is also this line :
“Guru Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Pran, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Nargis, Kishore Kumar, S.D. Burman and R.D. Burman were his closest friends from the film industry.” If a man is known by the company he keeps, than there are no better examples.

The song I am presenting as a tribute to Dev Anand on his 97th birth anniversary is from the film “Amir Garib” (1974). The song comprises of two separate solos, by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, which are the mirror images of each other. The song picturization and the lyrics are also mirroring each other. Both songs are picturised on Dev Anand and Hema malini, singing the two solos. With colourful clothes, a beach, an open jeep on the beach, than the Swimming pool at the Sun & Sand just beyond the Juhubeach(Common in both songs, with extra’s looking like Europeans in colourful swim suits) and a park road with a tonga ride. This is a beach song, tonga song, car song swimming pool song, teasing song, pacifying song all rolled into one.

About version songs which are mirror image of each other, I can recall one song from the film “Himalaya ki god mein”
.
The following three songs from “Ameer Gareeb”(1974)are already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere pyaale mein sharaab daal de phir dekh tamaasha 21 June 2009
Main aaya hoon leke saaz haathon mein 12 August 2012
Kahin janaab ko mera to intezaar nahin 3 December 2018

The post is by Peevesie’s Mom which has a synopsis of the film. Another trivia is that the first song from this movie appeared on the blog as early as 21.06.2009, within its first year.
