Hullo Atuldom

‘Prem Rog’ (1982) was a film produced by Raj Kapoor’s RK Film’s and directed by Raj Kapoor himself. It had Rishi Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor from the Kapoor clan heading the cast with Padmini Kolhapure, Nanda, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raza Murad, Leela Mishra, Sushma Seth, Bindu, Om Prakash, Kiran Vairale featuring in prominent roles/characters. Vijendra Ghatge, Rajendranath, Tanuja, Asha Sachdev, Monty Nath, Dulari and Dina Pathak featured in either special or guest appearances.

The story was based on the issue of widow remarriage which I am sure is never a dated topic. There is a very poignant dialogue which Shammi Kapoor (as Bade Raja Thakur) says towards the end of the film which meant that “we (The Thakurs) lay down rules for the public to follow and move on in life but in reality we are ourselves bound by age-old customs.” (The original dialogue, as written by Jainendra Jain is “हम लोग दोहरी ज़िंदगी जीते हैं, दूसरों के लिए और, अपने लिए कुछ और। ये सब दिखावा है। मगर हमारे यहाँ विधवा की दूसरी शादी नहीं हुआ करती।”).  The story was written by Smt. Kamna Chandra. Pandit Narendra Sharma and Santosh Anand were the lyricists and Laxmikant Pyarelal were the music directors. Sudha Malhotra, Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar and Anwar were the playback singers used.

An interesting titbit on the film is that it was the first time that Shammi Kapoor acted in a RK Film, almost 30 years after Raj Kapoor established the banner. Although they had appeared together in ‘Char Dil Char Rahen’ in 1959 and also appeared in a guest appearance in a song of Manmohan Desai’s 1981 release ‘Naseeb’. Raj Kapoor had cast Shashi Kapoor in his ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (SSS) (1978) and a few of the earlier films of RK Banner.

‘SSS’ had Padmini Kolhapure play the childhood of Zeenat Aman and ‘Prem Rog’ (after four years since “SSS”) saw Padmini play one of her first adult roles. (Nasir Hussain’s ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’ also had Padmini play an adult role and that released before ‘Prem Rog’) Padmini went on to win the Filmfare award for Best Actress in that year.

We have four songs from film on the blog. Today we are revisiting the film on the occasion of Rishi Kapoor’s birth anniversary- he would have turned 70. He had some different types of roles post 2000 with films like ‘Raju Chacha’, ‘Kuchh Khatti Kuchh Meethi’, ‘Agneepath’ etc and he tasted a different success. The highlight of this period of his career was his on-screen reunion with Amitabh Bachchan in “102 Not Out” when both played old-aged father-son duo.

He was nominated in the Best Supporting actor and Best Actor in a Comic role for playing a 90-year-old grandfather whose heart-attack is instrumental in bringing his dysfunctional family together for a ‘final family photo’ which will be captioned “Kapoor & Sons, since 1921” (that was also the title of the movie). Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor won the Filmfare for this role. Other than this he was an National Award winner for ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970), Filmfare award winner for ‘Bobby’ (1973).

With today’s song we shall also wish (belatedly) Pyarelal Sharma of the Laxmi-Pyare duo on turning a year younger on 3rd September. He has given us so many lovely, melodious moments since the early 60s in the company of Laxmikant Kudalkar after having started as assistants to the big-names of Bollywood music. In all 174 songs composed by the duo appeared in the Finals of Binaca Geetmala. The stats page of the blog says they have composed 2900 songs, in about 635 films, of which the blog has 942 i.e. we are not even halfway in covering the songs composed by Laxmi-Pyare. The first film of the duo came in 1963 and the last film on which they worked together was in 1998. Pyarelal has been seen on Television in recent times as special judge on many musical shows. Wishing him good health.

Here is the song in the voice of Suresh Wadkar that comes at the start of the movie. It shows Rishi Kapoor dressed simply in a shirt devoid of the blazers, jerseys and mufflers that he was famous for. The song is written by Santosh Anand.

aisi hai is rog ki maaya

कुछ समझा और कुछ समझ ना पाया

दिल वाले का दिल भर आया

जा तन लागे वो तन जाने
जा तन लागे वो तन जाने
ऐसी है इस रोग की माया
मेरी इस हालत को
हाँ मेरी इस हालत को को नज़र ना लगाओ

मैं हूँ प्रेम रोगी

यारो है वो किस्मत वाला
प्रेम रोग जिसे लग जाता है
सुख दुख का उसे होश नहीं है
अपनी लौ में राम जाता है
हर पल खुद ही खुद हँसता है
हर पल खुद ही खुद रोता है
ये रोग ला-इलाज सही
फिर भी कुछ कराओ
ओ जाओ जाओ जाओ
अरे जाओ जाओ जाओ

Blog Day :

5141 Post No. : 17102 Movie Count :

Today (15 August 2022) is the 76th Independence day for India.So India has completed 75 years of independence. I have seen 60 Independence days. It is the 15th Independence day for the blog. This constitutes a nice 5:4:1 ratio.

Only 15 years had passed since independence when I was born. The country was still ruled by its first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) and first President (Dr Rajendra Prasad). The country was still trying to find its feet. When I look back at the situation of India those days, India was in as bad shape as the most underdeveloped countries in Africa. The literacy rate was abysmal. Life expectancy was 32 years.

Here I present some important indices that India had in 1947. I have also provided figures for the same indices in 1962, 2008 and 2022. The change in values over the years have been quite remarkable.

Life expectancy in india in years
1947 1962 2008 2022
32 42 66 70

We can see that the life expectancy in India has become more than doubled from 32 years to 70 years.

Infant mortality rate (per 1000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
218 157 49 27

Infant mortality rate was quite alarming till a few decades ago. The figure of 27 deaths per 1000 live births is still unsatisfactory but it is a vast improvement from the figure of 1947.

Maternal mortality rate (per 100000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
2000 1000 212 103

The Maternal mortality rate had improved by nearly 20 times in 75 years.

Literacy rate in India in %
1947 1962 2008 2022
12 % 29 % 70 % 77%

India was among the most illiterate nations on earth. Today Indian literacy rate is quite high and that has enabled India to take rapid strides in economic activities that require skilled manpower, viz service sector and manufacturing sector.

Population of India in crores
1947 1962 2008 2022
34 cr 47 cr 121 cr 140 cr

Indian population had quadrupled in 75 years.

Human Development Index
1947 1962 2008 2022
NA NA 0.563 0.645

Human development index was devised in 1990. It consists of indices of health, education and standard of living. As health, education and standard of living improves, so does HDI.

Agriculture production in Million tonnes
1947 1962 2008 2022
50 Million Tonnes (50 % of GDP) 71 Million tonnes 216 million tonnes 316 Million tonnes (17%)

Population has quadrupled whereas food grain production had increased more than six times. It had happened while agriculture sector is now contributing less than 20 % of GDP,  while it was over 50 % of GDP in 1947.

GDP in billion $
1947 1962 2008 2022
24 42 1200 3200

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

GDP per capita in $
1947 1962 2008 2022
70 90 1000 2277

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

One can notice that India, despite its problems, including wrong policy decisions and adverse geo political circumstances, has come up a long way in last 75 years. Now India seems poised to take its rightful place among the nations of the world. It is a matter of time (three decades in my estimate) before India will join the list of advanced nations of the world.

There are lots of things that can be mentioned here, but the above tables give us clear idea about the progress that India has made in various areas.

On this occasion, here is a song from an unreleased movie called ‘Aaj Watan Ne Hamen Pukaara’ (1970). The movie was made under the banner of Sangam Productions, Bombay. That is all the information that is known about this movie.

This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Bismil Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohinder Kaur.

Lyrics of this rare song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 76th independence day.

Blog Day :

5130 Post No. : 17085

Today 4th August 2022 is the ninety-third birth anniversary (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) of Kishore Kumar.

For the music lovers and readers associated with this blog today is another great day and we remember Kishore Da today and pay our tributes to him today here on the blog.

Today I have been late in sending this post to our editors and I sincerely hope that they will get time to consider and post this one. For more than a month now there is a ‘special project’ going at my workplace and because of this I am getting very less time to participate in blog activities. Though I wish to write and send many posts and many songs keep going through my mind on daily basis, but I am unable to concentrate and put in my energy on writing. I hope things to get back to normal after this ‘two months’ project gets over.

Today’s post got delayed because I was unable to make my mind up while making the selection. There are so many Kishore Kumar songs yet to be posted on the blog.
Since today is his birth anniversary I first looked for a happy song, then a fun song, then a romantic song, only a solo song, inspirational song, motivational song etc etc.

There was one song lying since years and pending to be posted, but it was a duet song and I did not wish to post a duet on this occasion today. I even noted two other songs, but then decided to send other.

Finally, I selected a Pancham composition which is in a sombre mood. Nevertheless listening to Kishore Kumar’s voice in this soulful song will bring back many memories for the readers. Poetry in the song by Majrooh Saab is also very nice and philosophical. The music prelude, the guitar and the mouth organ in between used in this composition is also very nice to listen to.

The movie and its songs were not much popular during its time. Nevertheless the overall musical score for this movie by Pancham Da is very very nice.

So here I am presenting a song from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Sitamgar’.

‘Sitamgar-1985’ was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal.

It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar, and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania, and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie.

V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D. Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra who is riding on a horse. It reminds us of many songs with similar picturisation.

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

The audio version is having three stanzas while the video of this song is of only two stanzas.

Let us now listen to the great voice Kishore Kumar and take a journey down memory lane …

Blog Day :

5083 Post No. : 17007

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ (1984).

One song from this movie has been posted on the blog by our Respected Sadanand ji, – “Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye“. In his write up Sadanand ji has mentioned Indian cricket and Bollywood both enjoy enormous popularity among Indians”. Yes! Very rightly said by him and this has the case been with most of our country-men and particularly people like me who have grown up in the ‘seventies’. We loved movies and cricket at the same level and they have been an integral part of our ‘life’s journey’.

Today I will add a little to the nostalgia about cricket, a song from a movie where a cricketer was the main lead and memories of the month of June. As I had mentioned earlier ‘June’ has been special month for me for many reasons. It has birth anniversaries and other anniversaries of closed ones and many other important things of my personal journey.

Other than the personal anniversaries we have anniversaries related to cricket 😊, anniversary of my passing out board exam in June 1983 😊, and anniversaries of many movies and memories of many movies released in 1983. We have birth anniversary and remembrance days of many artists etc.

1983 had been a special year for me and particularly the summer of 1983. Every summer brings back many memories of the 1983 summer to me. India won its first Cricket World Cup in June 1983. The movie ‘83’ which was released in December 2021 revived the thrill and nostalgia of the 1983 cricket world cup. I watched this movie twice on its First day (i.e. first Friday) and again on ‘second Friday’ in theater. Recently again I watched this movie on OTT as I was alone at home 😊.

In this article I am not going to discuss the ‘Summer of 1983’ or ‘June of 1983’ anymore. But I will be taking you back to the summer of 1982. Indian cricket team was on tour to England in that summer of 1982.

Yes, I still remember how I jumped out of my bed, when I was listening to the commentary of radio of the second test of India vs England Test match that was played from June 24 to 28 at Manchester during India’s tour of England in 1982. It was 27th of June (since 1994 this day become very special day of my life, and yes, we have Pancham’s birthday on the same day too  😊).

27th June, 1982 was the fourth day of this test and the time in India then must have been around 10 or 10:30 pm (I do not remember it exactly now). I was lying down on bed and listening to the commentary of this match on radio. And I jumped from my bed and sat on my toes in half standing position when the commentator was giving a ball by ball commentary of the over England’s bowler Bob Willis (who was also the captain of England). The batsman on strike was India’s Sandeep Patil. The first ball was hit for a four and then followed four after four…

This was the famous ‘six fours of Sandeep Patil in an over…

Sandeep Patil made his test debut in 1980 and played his last ODI in 1986. He was always in news for his ‘destructive batting’ and ‘other than cricket’ activities. From cricket I always remember his 174 against Australia, then the ‘world cup’, and when he was specially called for a test with Pakistan at Nagpur (Oct’1983) where he landed by a special ‘air-craft’ provided Maharashtra Government.

In between his cricket career he had also done a movie. Today we are going to listen to a song from this movie. Though this movie was not a success it was in news and especially the chemistry between Sandeep Patil and the heroine of the movie Debashree Roy was a talk among our senior friends at that time. I have not watched this movie.

‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ was directed by Vijay Singh for VS Productions, Bombay. Vijay Singh not only directed this movie, but he was also the producer of this movie and had written dialogues of this movie and had done the editing of this movie too. The star cast of the movie has Poonam Dhillon, Sandeep Patil, Debashree Roy, Ram Sethi, Iftekhar, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Narendra Nath, Birbal, Jugnu, Raj Anand, Chunnu Mehra, Vinay Mandke, Indrajeet Ahluwalia, and others. Sayyad Kirmani, Barrister Sheshrao Wankhede, Prabhu Desai, Vishwas Raut, Ashok Mankad, and Pinki had made a friendly appearance in this movie. Shakti Kapoor had made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.09.1984.

The movie has seven songs written by two songwriters – Dev Kohli (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (two songs). Music for this movie was composed by Vijay Singh himself. So, he had donned the ‘hats’ of Producer-Director-Editor-Dialogue writer and Music Director of this movie). Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Welcome To The Orkay Nite … Pehli Nazar Mein Pyaar Huaa Dev Kohli Suniti Devi, Vinay Mandke, Aenet, chorus
02 Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe Zameen Aasmaan Ye Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar
03 Aa Ja Mere Sanam, Baithhe Hain Raahon Mein Palken Bichha Ke Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
05 Geet Mere Honthhon Ko De Gaya Koi Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
06 Is Dafaa Ham Na Ghataaon Ki Tarah Chhaayenge Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
07 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Ashok Khare

HFGK mentions the following names in the singer’s list of this movie i.e. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Suniti Devi, Ashok Khare, Vinay Mandke, and Vijay Singh. Today’s song is duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar and on screen it is lip synced by Poonam Dhillon and Sandeep Patil.

Lyrics for the today’s songs are by Ravindra Peepat and music is composed by Vijay Singh.

As Sadanandji has mentioned in his post “The only plus point in the movie, if I may say so, is its music”. This movie has nice songs and I like all the songs of this movie except the songs listed at serial no. 1 in the above table which I think I had not listened or I do not remember it. Incidentally the first song from this movie was also posted in the month of June on 18.06.2016 :).

Let us enjoy the today’s song now…

Today’s song is from the film ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ (1961).

Generally, I like to write on films from the 30’s to the 50’s decade, which is my comfort zone. I feel homely and on friendly ground when I write about those old films. Films after 1960 are NOT a ‘ NO- NO ‘ for me, but unless I find either the film or the song interesting, I normally do not choose that song. That way and to allay any misunderstanding in our readers’ minds, let me stress here that I have written more than 200 posts on films from 1960 to 2013 also. Actually since there is still so much scope in the first 3 decades of talkie films, turning to the films of 60+ songs is not that common.

Just for my own information, I was curious about when was the last song from the 60’s discussed by me. I took out my long books wherein I first hand write my articles, backwards from my post on the 12th June 2022. I was surprised to find that my last song-post for a film of 1962 (‘Sautela Bhai’) was on 6-12-2020 ! That’s a cool gap of 176 posts in between !!

The usual question comes as to what is an ‘Old Film’ ? It all depends on the person’s age who wants to know the answer. Over a period of last so many years I got the following answer….

For a Person Aged An Old Film is From
20-30 years films of and prior to 1990
30-40 1980
40-50 1970
50-60 1960
60-70 1950
70-80 1940
80++ 1930

For youngsters of 20-30 years, songs of 1930 are antiques, 1940’s are Grandpa’s choices, 50 & 60’s are Dad’s favorites and 70 & 80’s are very old songs ! So, one can see the connection between the age and the period of film songs to label it differently !

Now coming to today’s song ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ (KPKD) was a costume/stunt drama. The title of this film has an interesting history behind it.

During the 30’s and the 40’s there was a comedian named Noor Mohammed. Based on his role as Charlie Chaplin including his dress, mustache, hat, stick, talk and walk, he was nicknamed as Charlie. There was a time when this Charlie was extremely popular all over India. He used to sing his own songs too. He became so famous and popular that films were sold in his name . He started to get special songs shot on him in almost every film – much before Johnny Walker in the 50s. He sang his own songs. He left Ranjit Studios and was the first actor to become a ‘free-lance‘ breaking the studio system. Some of his films and songs therein were famous all over India. In the film ‘Sanjog’ (1943), he sang “Palat, Tera Dhyan Kidhar Hai“. This line became so famous that young boys in colleges used this line for calling girls, in those days. In the film ‘Dhandhora’ (1941), he sang “Ek Do Teen Char Paanch Chhe Saat Aath Nau Dus Gyara Bara,Teri Nazar Ne Mujhe Mara“. Raj Kapoor used “Ek Do Teen Aaja Mausam Hai Rangeen” (film ‘Awaara’ (1951)) and later Madhuri Dixit’s “Ek Do Teen” (film ‘Tezaab’ (1988)) became very famous. In the film ‘Taqdeer’ (1943) he sang ”Thank You, Mention Not” and “I Am Very Very Sorry”. These too became popular.

Based on Charlie’s song “Palat, Tera Dhyan Kidhar Hai” this film’s title was finalized as ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’. For reasons unknown to others, the Censor board objected to this title and asked the makers to change it. After a lot of arguments, the makers finally had to change it to ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. I have seen this film. Neither the original nor the revised title had any connection with the story of the film.

This was the first and the only film directed by actor CS aka Chandrashekhar Dubey. I could not get enough information about Dubey from anywhere. He used to live somewhere in the Seven Bungalows area of Andheri west, where I have been living since long time. I used to see him along with his friends sitting in a hotel nearby sometimes. After searching a lot, I came across a short note on him by Mr. MN Sardana ji on the FB page of ‘Wo Din Yaad Karo’. For our readers, I reproduce it here after adapting and adding my information to it from my notes.

Chandrashekhar Dubey aka C Dubey was born on 4-9-1924 at Village Kannod of Dewas District in the then Central Provinces (now Madhya Pradesh). During his college education, he was very active in politics and had been in jail during the Quit India movement too. He had his quota of struggle, when he arrived at Mumbai to become someone .

Luckily he found his Godfather in film maker Amiya Chakraborty, who noticed him and took him under his wings. Dubey, became his Man Friday. He was spot boy, production executive, prompter and assistant director all rolled into one, besides doing small roles in the films made by Mars & Movies and other production Houses . His first film was ‘Devdaasi’ (1945).

Filmmaker Guru Dutt gave him the role of a doctor in ‘Mr & Mrs 55’ (1955), which got him much needed publicity. In the famous movie ‘Seema’, made by his mentor Amiya Chakraborty, Dubey was assigned the role of a street ruffian cum thief, who made the life of heroine Nutan miserable. People found Dubey quite amusing and he became a full time actor. In 1957 Amiya Chakraborty passed away suddenly due to heart attack, leaving his movie ‘Kathputli’ incomplete, which was completed by Nitin Bos. Totally dedicated to his late master Amiya Chakraborty, Dubey did not leave the company. Ajit Chakraborty took the reins of the company and made ‘Ardhangini’ in 1959 and ‘Apne Huye Paraye’ in 1964 and Dubey gave him his full support and services.

While he was established as a character actor, he now wanted to exhibit his other skills by directing a film He got a chance in 1960 to direct a light hearted entertaining movie ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’. It was a modest movie and had an experienced artist Anoop Kumar And a new bee Preeti Bala as lead players. Anoop Kumar had appeared in many movies in supporting roles and had done a variety of roles like hero, comedian, villain and sympathetic roles. In the 1952 movie ‘Rani’, which was made by Jupiter Pictures, Madras and directed by LV Prasad , he did a swashbuckling role of a warrior, opposite the great actress of South Bhanumathi, who was a versatile singer also.

Preeti Bala was raw and had only a faint idea about acting. Instead of changing the style of acting, she changed her name as Zeb Rehman, which did not bring any change to her destiny. She was in news during sixties when she did body double of Madhubala in few movies like ‘Half Ticket’, ‘BoyFriend’ and ‘Passport’, since Madhubala was ailing and it was not possible for her to attend the shooting. The movie ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’ had music by Gunjan. The movie, when completed and sold, faced a big hurdle, when Censor Board refused to certify the movie. Their main objection was related to the title of the film, which they found offensive and denigrating. Producer tried to justify the title, but our prude and adamant Censor Board refused to budge and insisted on changing the title. Since publicity material including lobby cards were already printed, film makers reluctantly renamed the movie as ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. The movie when released in 1961, did not do good for any one and all those connected with the movie were disappointed. Since the movie had flopped, it poured cold water on the ambition of music composer Gunjan, director Dubey and the lead players. Producers duo Nanda and Gupta after losing substantial money downed the shutter of their company.

CS Dubey was a good character actor. He acted in 196 films. His last film was ‘Antim Nyay’ (1993). He died on 28-9-1993, but after his death, his 8 films were released – the last one being ‘Yaar Meri Zindagi’ (2008).

(Thanks to Mr. M.N.Sardana ji).

The film’s music director was Gunjan. Who was Gunjan? Most people do not know that Gunjan was another name under which singer/composer GM Durrani gave music. As Gunjan he also gave music to film ‘State Express’ (1961). Earlier in his career, he gave music to films like ‘Angoori’ (1943), ‘Vijayalaxmi’ (1943) and ‘Dhadkan’ (1946) under his real name.

The cast of the film was Anoop Kumar, Preeti Bala (aka Zeb Rehman), Durga Khote, Daljit, Iftikhar, Majnu, Polson, Dalda, Jeevankala etc.

‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ was truly an obscure movie. It was clearly a B grade film with the appropriate star cast. The Hero Anoop kumar was in double role in this film (as if one Anoop was not enough !).

The film was produced by Balendra Gupta and NC Nanda, under the banner of Movie Hits (indicating hopes), and was directed by CS Dubey or Chandrashekhar Dubey, a small time actor in those days. Dubey was a veteran, having started his career from the 30s and he used his knowledge of old films in this.The original title of this film was ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’.

Later on the title was changed to ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. However neither the audience ‘zara bhi palat ke dekh’ nor their kismet changed jara bhi !

The lyricists were Akhtar Romani and Sadiq Nazmi. Story and screenplay by Sri Prakash and Dialogues by Suman Romani.

The story of the film was….

The story had nothing remarkable and it was highly predictable. Prince Kunwar (Anoop Kumar) is studying in UK when his father dies and the king appoints him as his successor, instead of his elder brother Samsher (Daljit), who is a gone case, indulging in wine, women and gambling. Kunwar starts for India. Samsher wants to kill him. Loyal Diwan ji and another sardar, Mansingh are escorting Kunwar when they are attacked. Diwanji is killed, Kunwar is injured seriously and thrown in a river presuming dead, but Mansingh escapes. Mansingh, one day finds Badloo (Anup Kumar), who looks same to same as Kunwar. Mansingh does not know that he is a barber. Mansingh makes him the Kunwar and brings him to the capital of Kingdom. Princess Kiran (Preeti Bala) who is engaged to Kunwar suspects Badloo.

The real Kunwar is saved by people of Imlipur as Badloo and brought to his ‘mother’ (Durga Khote). Kunwar understands the situation and keeps quiet till opportune moment comes. Finally he contacts Kiran and they together expose the impostor prince, kill Samsher in a fight and reunite themselves as a reward.

In the early 60s, when the Film industry was churning out excellent movies after movies, it was hardly expected that such a film would succeed. The film got what it deserved. A peaceful rest in the cans !

The mukhda remains the same as the original title of the film “Zara Palat Ke Dekh”.

HFGK mentions Manna Dey and chorus, but the voice of S Balbir is also there in the song.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Toofaan -1975#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the movie “Toofaan-1975”.

I have vague memories of watching this movie in my childhood. But I do not remember the movie, its songs, or its story. What I remember is the hero wearing a mask (Zorro type mask) and riding a horse, with a sword in his hand (?).

I had in one of my earlier post on the blog mentioned earlier that I get to watch the movies ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’, ‘Double Cross-1973’ and ‘Toofaan-1975’ on back to back days at small town ‘Malkapur’ in the ‘Vidarbha’ region of Maharashtra (somewhere around 1976-1977).

My parents were on tour to this place for their ‘Marathi play’ to be staged there. I must be around eight-nine years old then. I and my brothers get to watch these movies then. As I mentioned earlier, I carried the memories of one song (or rather their ‘mukhda’ only) each from ‘Do Khilaadi’ and ‘Double Cross’ and from this movie ‘Toofaan’ I remember the masked hero only and the name of the hero i.e. Vikram.

Today I present the first song from this movie ‘Toofaan-1975’ on the blog and this movie is making a debut on the blog today.

‘Toofaan-1975’ was directed by Kedar Kapoor for ‘Sargam Pictures (Pvt.) Ltd., Bombay’.

It had Vikram, Priyadarshini, Roopesh Kumar, Jagdeep, B.M. Vyas, Jeevan, Jayraj, Trilok Kapoor, Sajjan, Rajan Haksar, Abhijit Sen, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Shetty, V. Gopal, Shriram, Ramlal, Vijay Khanna, Urmila Bhatt, Praveen Pal, Meena T., Bahnumati, Sujata and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975.

‘Toofaan-1975’ has seven songs, all of them penned by Ravindra Jain.

Ravindra Jain also composed the music for this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Toofaan toofaan hai mera naam Mohd Rafi
02 O barkha mujhe sach sach bataa Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
03 Pyaar kar, pyaar kar, dhaar kar, dhaar kar Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Baj jaayega baaja baj jaayega Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Reshma mera naam hai, naachna mera kaam hai Asha Bhonsle
06 Chalo koi khel khelen ham Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
07 Sachche ka sachche ka bolbaala Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. It is an ‘introduction type’ song and its lyrics are very simple and straightforward. ( I listen to the other couple of songs from this movie and I find they also have very simple and straightforward lyrics 😊. Our readers will be able to listen to them on the blog as and when they are posted here).

On screen we see the ‘masked hero’ lip syncing this song ( because he doesn’t take out the ‘mask’ and so his face cannot be seen 😊, but he must be Vikram – the hero of this movie 😊 ).
We do not have any option to watch the song as it is because the hero is telling us in the song that ‘karoon main to apne hi jee ki, chaahe kuchh bhi ho anjaam’ 😊. We can see the hero travelling riding on a horse through different terrains and waiving people (villagers) and taking care of them and helping them.

( I guess this movie must have been inspired by the character of ‘Zorro’. We have one more movie like this 😊 )

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

Let us listen to and enjoy today’s song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Ravindra Jain, and he has also composed the music.

Hullo Atuldom

The song in this post is the perfect candidate for the “how come this song was not posted earlier” category. It being the most popular song of the film. There have been three songs posted on the blog, out of eight (I think) that this movie has, and this song is mentioned in at least two of these posts.

Avinash ji, in his post of the song “Jeene Ko To Jeete Hain Sabhi“, wondered how today’s song missed a place in that year’s Top 30 of the famous Binaca Geetmala.

Nahm ji has given the complete story of this movie in her post of the song “Mil Gayeen Aaj Do Lehren“. She has also pointed towards the connection between the song in that post with today’s song.

The movie had made it’s debut on the blog with the song “Maine Tujhe Kabhi Kuchh Kaha Tha“.

I am talking of ‘Ye Vaada Raha’ (1982) which was directed by Kapil Kapoor for Rose Movies, Bombay. It was produced by Ramesh Behl. It had Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim, Poonam Dhillon, Sarika, Rakhi, Rakesh Bedi, Iftekhar, Agha, Sundar, Gulshan Bawra, Hari Shivdasani, and others. Shammi Kapoor made a special appearance in this movie. The film has six (but I think I have counted eight songs because one is a multi-version song) songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Revisiting ‘Ye Vaadaa Rahaa’ today on the occasion of Gulshan Bawra’s birth anniversary. He would have been 85 today. He was associated with many popular songs in his career – songs which were tuned by Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmikant Pyarelal, RD Burman and other music composers of the 70s, 80s and 90s. The last movie for which he penned songs was the Akshay Kumar- Twinkle Khanna starrer ‘Zulmi’ which released in 1999. It had music by Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen; he had also appeared on the screen in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle with Rishi performing a waltz with an imaginary partner and then Poonam joins him. The video that I found on YouTube has all the versions stitched together. So, the second part of the song begins 3 minutes into the video where Tina Munim is reminiscing her days with Rishi Kapoor. I am unable to find videos where the three versions are separate.


Song-Tu, Tu Hai Wahi Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha (Ye vaada Raha)(1982) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-RD Burman
Both

Lyrics

la la la la la laa
la la la la la la

la la la la la lala la la
tu tu hai wahi dil ne jise apna kaha
tu hai jahaan main hoon vahaan
ab to ye jeena tere bin hai saza
ho mil jaayen is tarah do lehren jis tarah
ho mil jaayen is tarah do lehre jis tarah
phir ho naa juda
haan yeh vaada raha
la la la la la la
la la la la la

main aawaaz hoon toh tu hai geet mera
main aawaaz hoon toh tu hai geet mera
jahaan se niraala manmeet mera
mil jaayen is tarah
do lehren jis tarah
ho mil jaayen is tarah
do lehren jis tarah
phir ho naa juda
haan ye vaada raha

kisi mod pe bhi naa yeh saath toote
mere haath se teraa daaman naa chhoote

la la
la la la la
la la la
kabhi khwaab mein bhi tu mujhase naa roothhe
mere pyaar ki koyi khushiyaan naa loote
mil jaayen iss tarah
do lehren jis tarah
ho o mil jaayen iss tarah
do lehren jis tarah
phir ho naa juda
haan ye vaada raha
tu tu hai wahi
dil ne jise apna kaha
tu hai jahaan main hoon vahaan
ab to ye jeeina tere bin hai saza

tujhe main jahaan ki nazar se chura loon
kahin dil ke kone mein tujhko chhupa loon
kabhi zindagi mein pade mushkilen to
mujhe tu sambhaale tujhe main sambhaaloon

ho mil jaayen iss tarah
do lehren jis tarah
ho mil jaayen iss tarah
do lehren jis tarah
phir ho naa juda haan ye vaada raha
tu tu hai wahi
dil ne jise apna kaha
tu hai jahaan main hoon vaha
ab to ye jina tere bin hai saza
ho la la la la la la
lalalalala
phir ho naa juda
haan ye vaada raha
ye vaada raha
