“Ek Hans Ka Joda”(1975) was directed by Avtar Bhogal for Punch Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Anil Dhawan, Zaahira, Utpal Dutt, Indrani Mukherji, Ifthikar, Achla Sachdev, Anwar Hussain, Brahm Bhardwaj, Prabhu Dayal, Birbal, B Bhalla, Mama, Pushpanjali, Manorama, Sudama, Shreedhar Naik, Sunil Hattangadi, Madhu, Madhavi, Dolly, Sitara, V Gopal, with Anjali Kadam (guest appearance), and Dharmveer (new discovery) and Ajit Singh (new discovery).

Raja, while discussing an earlier song from the movie, had given an overview of the story of this movie. Here is what he had to say about this movie:-

Vijay Arora (Anil) and Zaheera (Tina) are madly in love with each other. But he’s from a poor family, she’s from a rich family. Though their parents object, Zaheera’s grandfather (Utpal Dutt) is more modern in his thinking. He suggests they could have a “trial marriage” for a couple of months to see whether their love could really stand the test of life’s real tribulations. They’d have to live on Anil’s meagre earnings. And they’d get to spend only the daytime together, nights would have to be in respective homes.

The story then goes on to show how they cope with these conditions. How their families try to separate them through misunderstanding. And how, finally (it being a Hindi movie), their love prevails against all odds.

I remember finding the movie ok. Not excellent but watchable. But then I usually start watching such movies with zero expectations anyway so I’m rarely disappointed. ? At least it had some sort of a storyline and wasn’t the typical masala movie of the times.

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

Here is the fifth and final song from the movie. This song is the title song, as well as the movie opening song which plays in the background and credits appear on the screen.

This song is sung by Ajit Singh, the “new discovery” of this movie who was a leading popo singer of India. A comment on the YT link of this song mentions that Ajit Singh was the composer of this song as well, and I have gone with this detail, though HFGK mentions Jaidev as the composer for this movie.

Gauhar Kanpuri is the lyricist.

With this song, “Ek Hans Ka Joda”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

‘Dil Aur Deewaar’ (1978) was directed by K Bapaiyya for Vijaya and Suresh Combines, Madras. The movie had Jeetendra, Mausami Chatterji, Rakesh Roshan, Sarika, Ashok Kumar, Prem Chopra, Vijay Arora, Jagdeep, Roopesh Kumar, Madhu Malini, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Rajan Haksar, Pichoo Kapoor, Jagdish Raj etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

Today (7 april 2018) is the 76th birthday of Jeetendra. On this occasion, here is a song from ‘Dil Aur Deewaar’ (1978). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised on Jeetendra and Mouhumi Chatterji as an “expression of love” song. The song is picturised in a garden. Could it be the same Vrindavan Garden that was visible in the earlier song posted today ? I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the garden.

With this song, which is also the title song of the movie, ‘Dil Aur Deewaar’ (1978) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Yesterday (27 march 2018) was World Theatre Day. I learnt about this in the morning yesterday, as I was listening to the Vividh Bharati. Apparently, this was initiated in the year 1961, by The International Theatre Institute. It is celebrated annually on 27thMarch.

We have a number of actors in Bollywood, both past and present, who started their acting career on stage. Many of them never miss an opportunity to go back to act in a play or theatre reading etc. “We cannot forget the immediate response that we get from the audiences” is the most heard sentiment from these actors who keep going back to do theatre. And then, we have had actors who have performed ‘in front of the camera’ as they would perform ‘in front of a live audience’ – remember Sohrab Modi and Prithviraj Kapoor (in some of his initial movies). But the later generation of actors adopted different styles for theatre and movies. Also improved sound systems in theatres must have helped in later years; when one didn’t have to speak in ‘loud booming voices’ so as to be heard in the last rows.

Today with this post I am thinking of Farooque Shaikh who also did a lot of theatre and who would have been 70 on 25th March, just two days back (he passed away in 2013). I also remember Om Puri who was a product of National School of Drama along with Naseeruddin Shah. And yes, how can one forget our dear Shashi Kapoor and his work in bringing theatre to the layman through his Prithvi Theatre also helping many theatre groups in the process by giving a platform to exhibit their art.

Yesterday’s Indian Express (online edition) has an article on how the Twitterati are celebrating the day- http://indianexpress.com/article/trending/trending-globally/what-is-world-theatre-day-twitter-reactions-5112818/. The article begins with Shakespeare’s famous quote from “As You Like It” –

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.”

Strangely or coincidentally the song that I zeroed in for also says exactly the same thing. I had thought of it the moment I heard about the ‘World Theatre Day’. Then I sat through looking up articles on the internet and I referred Wikipedia for additional information and in the process landed on what Indian Express site had.

The song is written by a lyricist – Anand Bakshi – whose work I admire because he is one of the poets who puts the common man’s thoughts in poetry format (there are few more lyricists who do that but more on that later). The music is composed by Laxmi-Pyaare and playback is by Asha Bhonsle for Moushumi Chatterjee, whose presence is making Sulochana and Raj Mehra uncomfortable, while Vijay Arora and Nazeema are visibly squirming (would like to know why 😉). Then there is Jayshree T. dancing and Hari Shivdasani enjoying himself. There is also Snehlata (in white saree) who seems to be the happiest among the girls at the party. There are some more familiar faces in the party, which I am unable to name immediately. I request other readers to please help add more names to this video clip.

The film is directed by Sohanlal Kanwar and is one of the movies that has Subhash Ghai in its cast.

Blog Day : 3530 Post No. : 14178

First of all, let me wish all of you a Happy Ugadi and Happy Gudi Padwa today (18 march 2018). I hope those celebrating the occasion are enjoying themselves.

Today also happens to be the birthday of Shashi Kapoor (18 march 1938-4 december 2017), one of our best-known and most loved actors.

The thought is inescapable – and burdened with more than a tinge of sorrow. The thought that, had I written this post on just his previous birthday, I would have been talking of Shashi Kapoor in the present tense. I’d have been saying “is”, instead of “was”.

But that’s life – and death. And we have to accept it.

Ah, Shashi Kapoor!

Where do I start?

Let me start as usual with “my generation”, the 70s.

For me, and I am sure for many Hindi film lovers born in the early 60s, Shashi Kapoor would have been an integral part of their childhood film-watching experience. He was a very familiar face throughout the 70s – whether in solo roles or in multi-starrer films.

Those were the times when Rajesh Khanna (for the first half of the decade) and Amitabh Bachchan (for the second half) ruled. The 70s also saw a whole lot of new actors emerge. There were also some from the earlier decade who continued to enjoy success – Dharmendra, Manoj Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar, Jeetendra to name a few.

And there was Shashi Kapoor.

One thing most people will agree about Shashi Kapoor – he was very handsome. He had this boyishly cute face, bright eyes, and a smile that got accentuated by crooked teeth and a deep dimple. No wonder you often heard of the term “chocolatey good looks” when people talked of Shashi. 🙂

I think girls found Shashi particularly handsome – he was easily my sisters’ favourite. I was very young then in the late 60s, but I still remember that when the one weekly film in our club happened to be a Shashi film, they’d be thrilled. 🙂 Thus I have fond memories of watching at a very young age, in that club, Shashi films like Haseena Maan Jaayegi, Aamne Saamne, Suhana Safar, Ek Shriman Ek Shrimati, Pyar Ka Mausam, Raja Saab, Rootha Na Karo, Jahaan Pyaar Mile and many more. Whether the film was good or not, was secondary. Shashi was a good enough reason to enjoy it. I remember for days after seeing Pyar Ka Mausam, they’d be singing “ni sultana re”. 🙂 And they loved Aamne Saamne’s “nain milaakar chain churaana kiska hai ye kaam”.

Even when we went on holiday to Bombay for the first time in the early 70s, and we decided to watch a movie, the unanimous choice was Sharmeelee, playing at that time. I think my sisters were even hoping to catch sight of Shashi Kapoor somewhere on the streets of Bombay. 🙂 Not even one in a million chance – but one lives on hope. I remember, for days after watching Sharmeelee, the song “khilte hain gul yahaan” was on their lips. 🙂

Back in our village, when we had to travel 25 km to see a film in a cinema hall, they managed to persuade my dad to take them for Jaanwar Aur Insaan (1972). My dad wasn’t into films at all – it’s possible they told him it was a film about animals (jaanwar). Whereas it’s more likely they were interested in the insaan (Shashi). 🙂

Ah, these childhood memories. 🙂

I was fond of Shashi too – from those late 60s films, while my sisters would sing Shashi’s “tum bin jaoon kahaan” in Antakshari, I’d sing “aaye baithe khaaye piye khiske”. A little more matter-of-fact. 🙂

Today, as I am writing this post, with all these memories coming to the fore, it strikes me that even in an era with Rajesh Khanna as superstar (and Amitabh Bachchan later), Shashi had his own following. Like my sisters. 🙂

Sharmeelee (1971) with superhit songs, Jaanwar Aur Insaan (1972), Aa Gale Lag Ja (1973) with superhit songs, Chor Machaye Shor (1974) with the famous “le jaayenge, le jaayenge, dilwaale dulhaniya le jaayenge”, Chori Mera Kaam and Salaakhen (1975), Fakira (1976) with hit songs.

All solo films for Shashi, all successful. Am not counting the multi-starrers, Roti Kapda Aur Makaan (1974), Deewaar (1975) and Kabhie Kabhie (1976).

As the decade progressed, and multi-starrers became more common, Shashi Kapoor was very much part of them, often to be seen opposite reigning superstar Amitabh Bachchan in films like Trishul (1977) and Suhaag (1979).

Yet, he could carry his own in a solo – as was to be seen in Satyam Shivam Sundaram (1978), a film made by his brother, Raj Kapoor.

So Shashi Kapoor was largely a “safe” actor in the 70s – both for viewers and producers. Of course not every film worked (there are many aspect to a film’s success), but, by and large, audiences liked watching him on screen.

Towards the end of the decade, Shashi got into film production too. He produced some well-known films – Junoon (1979), Kalyug (1981), 36 Chowringhee Lane (1981), Vijeta (1982), Utsav (1984).

But in 1984, disaster struck – his dear wife Jennifer passed away, due to cancer. I think after that Shashi was not the same again.

I’ve talked a lot about his films of the 70s, mainly because that’s the decade I have most memories of. Of course his career started much earlier. As a child artiste (a young Raj Kapoor in Aag and Awara), with his first film as an adult being BR Chopra’s controversial Dharamputra (1961). In that film, he had a negative role.

Although he came from the Kapoor khandaan, it was made clear to Shashi that he had to come up on merit. He had his share of struggles early on – and though he managed the odd hit (like in the multi-starrer Waqt), he really had his first mega solo hit only with Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965).

His co-star in that film was, as usual, Nanda. I say “as usual”, because Nanda was his co-star in many films during the 60s. She was a much bigger star than he was – but was happy to be paired opposite him. Shashi later said he was hugely grateful to Nanda for this. Nanda herself said that Shashi was her favourite co-star.

One thing that struck me in obituaries about Shashi Kapoor last December was that almost everyone spoke a lot about Prithvi Theatre. And rightly so.

While there’s no doubt that Shashi Kapoor gained a lot of popularity from cinema, I think in his heart his love was Prithvi Theatre. After all, he had met his wife Jennifer also through theatre in the 1950s. So one of the most satisfying moments for him and for Jennifer must have been to set up Prithvi Theatre in 1978 and fulfil his father Prithviraj Kapoor’s dream of having a permanent location for his Prithvi Theatres (it had been a travelling troupe during Prithviraj’s time).

Many of the obits talked about how dedicated Shashi Kapoor (and Jennifer, when she was alive) was to Prithvi Theatre. Even when he was in very poor health in his final years, he would want to visit and even watch performances.

So no mention of Shashi Kapoor is complete without a mention of Prithvi Theatre.

I’ve not talked about his acting in English-language films or his partnership with Merchant-Ivory. I’ve myself just watched only one of these films – Bombay Talkie (1970), directed by James Ivory. It also starred Jennifer.

I’ve also not mentioned that Shashi Kapoor was considered to be a true gentleman actor. Many of his co-stars, from Sharmila Tagore to Hema Malini to Zeenat Aman, have said this. He was also supposed to have had a good sense of humour, always keeping the set lively.

All in all, Shashi Kapoor was a much-loved person during his lifetime. And for good reason. And you cannot really ask for more than that.

Now for the song for today.

It is from the film “Suhaana Safar” (1970). A film that I remember seeing as a very young boy, but sadly have only very faint memories of. I seem to vaguely remember a bus in which Shashi and Sharmila travel. That’s all I can remember now. 🙂 A good excuse to watch it again. 🙂

The song is the title song. Aha aha aa ye suhaana safar hai, sung by Rafisaab. The lyrics of this song are by Anand Bakshi, music by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The picturisation is of Shashi Kapoor in a jeep, generally giving out positive vibes, talking about travel, hawa, manzil etc. He finds himself behind a bus, and this infectious positive mood catches on with the travelers in the bus too. They join him in the song. Towards the end of the song, Sharmila Tagore (one of the travelers) looks out of the bus, Shashi waves to her – and it looks like he loses control of his jeep. (Am pretty sure it’s nothing serious :-)).

While watching the video and listening to the lyrics, I could not help thinking that this could be a metaphor for the suhaana safar of Shashi Kapoor’s life itself. And the suhaana safar that we have had following his films for decades. Indeed, it has been a wonderful journey – and we are thankful to him for letting us be part of it.

Interestingly, while I was having these thoughts, I got a message from Avinashji. As usual, when I thought of writing a post for Shashi Kapoor today, he had promptly messaged me, and offered to help me with providing the lyrics. Now, while sending me the lyrics, he echoed the exact same thoughts I had! About the suhana safar of Shashi Kapoor and what we have had with Shashi Kapoor. Serendipity. 🙂

I’ll now leave you with this positive song – and with remembering our suhaana safar with Shashi Kapoor.

There are two versions of this song – one by Rafisaab, the other by Suman Kalyanpur.

Blog Day : 3515 Post No. : 14119

Regulars know that we in this blog are pursuing two new year resolutions with missionary zeal- one is posting a “debutant” movie song and another is posting a “YIPPEE” movie song.

We are into the first week of march 2018, and we have so far stuck to these new year resolutions. This is a proof that we in the blog are far more serious about our new year resulutions that majority of people. 🙂

Posting a “debutant” movie song is a relatively rather straight forward matter. I need to look for movies that are not yet represented. We still have a couple to thousands movies (at least) that are yet to make their debuts in the blog so finding one “debutant” movie song daily is not much of a challenge.

Posting a “YIPPEE” movie song daily is increasingly becoming challenging through. Unlike “debutant” movie song mission, “”YIPPEE” mission requires that all but one song of the movie to be YIPPEED must have been covered. Moreover, we need to have a list of such YIPPIable” movie available with us. Thirdly, that missing song should be available.

Let us leave aise the unavailable final song movies. The movies where the final songs are available also cannot be discussed just like that. Many of these songs turn out to be special songs requiring special treatment on special occasions. For example, I had a few songs waiting to be YIPPEED because their final song was a Holi festival song. Yesterday, on the occasion of Holi, I used up one song song to finally ensure that “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) got YIPPEED yesterday (on 2 march 2018).

It is very essential for us to keep posting songs to make sure that more and more movies become YIPPIable. For the last few days, I have been unable to devote much time on the blog and I was content covering the “debutant” and “YIPPEE” movie songs and I did not bother making more movies YIPPIable.

So today (3 march 2018), I found myself paying the price. 🙂 I was struggling to pick songs that I could use today. I picked one song, but that song was so special that I decided that it had to be used on a special occasion. then I looked at another song. I listened to it and realised that this song was no less special and it also deserved its special writeup. Then I looked at another YIPPIable movie, but i found the lyrics of the final song almost undecipherable and so that song and movie too had to be discarded from consideration. There were other songs too but they could not have been touched for some special reasons or the other.

It was evening and 7 AM and I began to despair. I resolved that I would not let that situation come if I somehow managed to find a suitable YIPPIABLE for for today.

It was after 7 PM in the evening that a song came to my rescue. This song was sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala in the past and he had reminded me a few days back that this song was the final song from the movie. My record showed that this movie had two songs left to be covered. This song turned out to be a multiple version song ! So this song indeed fitted the bill.

That is not all. Listening to the song made me realise that there are some divine forces at work as far as this blog is concerned. This song is a “song with a message” and it is a message that I was in need of being reminded of. This song tells us that when we feel helpless then we should pray to the Almighty and he will show the way. Now in Hindi movies, we have so many songs where people are seen “remonstrating with the Almighty” where people are seen trying to shame/ abuse the Almighty. We have lots of such songs in Hindi movies as well as in this blog. Personally I regard these songs are songs of people living in denial which is quite common in our parts of the world. We do no work hard enough/ smart enough/ long enough and then we tend to find a scapegoat to blame for our inadequacy. The Almighty is that scapegoat in a large number of such situations.

It is my firm belief that if you work hard enough/ smart enough/ long enough, then, with a little bit of luck in your favour, you will get what you desrve. I like and subscribe to the comparison of our destiny being like a bank locker. This locker has two keys and both keys must be applied simulutaneously for our destiny to get unlocked. The key with us is work, the key with the bank manager (Almighty) is luck. When we remonsrtate the Almighty for our failures, then it is mostly a case where the Almighty is used his key but the remonstrator had not bothered to use his/her key (working hard enough/ smart enough/ long enough). If someone belives that Almighty is responsible for his/ her miseries then I have little sympathy for such people.

Coming to the song under discussion, I find the song quite a nice and soothing song. It is a philosophical song and a song with a message. And it is a song that will give strenght to people who may be feeling low in life at the moment.

In a somewhat lighter vein, I must say that I was feeling low because I was not able to find a YIPPIable song for the day and this song came to my rescue. It was like the Almghty coming to our rescue with just the perfect song ! We are using our key and the almighty used his key just in the nick of time. our thanks goes to the Almighty who hepled us. It proves that the almighty too likes to help people who are silently going about their tasks. 🙂

The song has two versions. One version is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. This song is lip synced by Om Shivpuri playing a Swami in front of his disciples. Only the audio of the other version is available. it is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle and chorus.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Lyrics (including the devnagri lyrics) of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. The movie, in case I failed to mention it earlier, is “Karm”(1977). This movie was produced and directed by B R Chopra for B R Productins, Bombay. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Vidya Sinha, Shabana Azmi, Ifthikhar, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Achla Sachdev, Manmohan Krishn, Pinchoo Kapoor, Nana Palsikar, S N Bannerji, Jagdis Raj, Keshav Rana, Nazeer Kashmiri, Master Bittu, Bobby Grewal, Jankidas, Madhu Chauhan, Sudha Shivpuri, Seema, R S Chopra, Sahgal, Sunil Dhawan, Abhimanyu Sharma, Prem Sagar etc, with guest appearances by Prema Narayan, Roopesh Kumar, Dines Thakur and Naaz.

The yippeee film for today the 1972 production by Manoj Kumar – ‘Shor’.

There was a period in the career of Manoj Kumar, where every film he touched has either been a hit, or it has commanded a cult status over the years. Starting with ‘Shaheed’ in 1965, and right up to ‘Kranti’ in 1981, he produced, directed and acted in a string of hit films, that have become memorable icons over the years. It was ‘Shaheed’ in 1965, then ‘Upkar’ in 1967, then ‘Poorab Aur Pashchim’ and ‘Yaadgar’ in 1970, then ‘Shor’ in 1972, ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makan’ in 1974, and then ‘Kranti’ in 1981. Of these, the 1972 production of ‘Shor’ is kind of the odd one out – it is not really a patriotic / nationalist theme, that is Manoj Kumar’s forte, that earned him the nickname of Mr Bhaarat. After 1981, Manoj Kumar seemed to have lost his touch, and after a string of indifferent productions – ‘Painter Babu’ (1983), ‘Kalyug Aur Ramayan’ (1987), and ‘Clerk’ (1989), he kind of let go the production / direction stance.

Coming back to ‘Shor’, not just that it was a little different from the normal ‘nationalist’ genre of Manoj Kumar, it is also counted as the least successful film, commercially, in his career as a producer / director – from the period of ‘Shaheed’ to ‘Kranti’. And then, like a few other handful of examples, this film gained a cult status over the decades. And that was, not in the least due to the fantastic songs and music of this film.

Having said that, it surely needs to be recognized and acknowledged that – looking at the list of his films from ‘Shaheed’ to ‘Kranti’ – he belongs to that select band of producers/directors that have had a Midas touch as far as music and songs are concerned. A quick review of his films listed above will lend credence to this statement. Even if, for the sake of argument only, if this set of films is viewed for quality features and box office attractions, then even if one wants to discount other aspects related to the film, one will not be able to discount these films for the sake of the music and songs.

One reason that ‘Shor’, after its initial lukewarm reception at the box office, continued to build into a cult film status, is its wonderful, and even powerful, music and songs.  Let’s take look at the list of songs of this film. It seems to be short in the list, but the impact and profundity of these songs, stands out all by itself.

Paani re paani teraa rang kaisaa 1658 21-Jul-09
Ik pyaar ka naghmaa hai 1675 24-Jul-09
Jeewan Chalne Ka Naam 5555 1-Mar-12
Shehnaai Baje Na Baje 14003 2-Feb-18

 

My favorite amongst these is of course the one that talks about the colors of water – “Paani Re Paani Tera Rang Kaisa”. The words of this song are just so dear. Every line, every stanza has its own flavor, and impact. In the three stanzas, the question posed in the mukhda is answered in different ways. And the last one – which will touch a chord of the life’s hope within each human being – is simply the best – “Sau Saal Jeene Ki Ummeedon Jaisa”.

Then we have the supremely inspirational song of hope and progress – “Jeevan Chalne Ka Naam” – a song that plays through the days of the hopeful endaeavor, as the hero attempts to break a record of continuous cycling effort. An event and a song that bring together an entire community – a pinnacle of synthesis of emotions coming together as one.

And then the song that has, along with “Paani Re Paani. . .”, garnered the cult status – this time in the genre of love songs. Every time I listen to this line – “Zindagi Aur Kuchh Bhi Nahin, Teri Meri Kahaani Hai”, it sends shiver down my spine. The sheer simplicity of words, put together to express one of the most profound essays in the multiplicity of human existence. In eventual analysis, actually in this life, there is nothing more than the self. And practically every tale is eventually a tale of the self. But love changes all that. When there is love, then the tale is of ‘you and me’ put together – and there really is nothing else in life actually. “Ik Pyaar Ka Naghma Hai” – life is but simply a song of love, yours and my love. One of THE best expressions that puts in a definitive and ultimate response to the query of “what is love”.

Another aspect of his musical expression I would like to discuss. What we see here is the shades of Raj Kapoor and Goldie Anand – as far as the construction and the presentation of the song is concerned. Manoj Kumar really has that Midas touch to get the best out of the team of songwriter + music director + singers. The songs of his films are some of the best-in-class creations that will be listed right up there with the ones that are considered as top creations, as well as presentations. He also has a knack of putting together the most appropriate scenario, and most convincingly, to bring the song in and merge it quite so seamlessly with the flow of the story line. His song presentations are simply out of the ordinary, in a special category all by themselves. Take your thoughts back to the songs like “Jogi Hum to Lut Gaye Tere Pyaar Mein” from ‘Shaheed’; “Aayee Jhoom Ke Basant” from ‘Upkar’; “Main Na Bhoolunga. . .” from ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’; “Ab Ke Baras Tujhe. . .” and “Zindagi Ki Na Toote Ladi” from ‘Kranti’. And the one that is the closest to my heart as a special favorite – “Hai Preet Jahaan Ki Reet Sada” from ‘Purab Aur Paschim”. That I am picking these songs as a sampler does not mean that the remaining songs do not jell. Each one does. Just that the space does not permit me to write about each one of them, what all I wish to write.

The song presented today, comes on to the screen with an already prefaced history, in the film. The three stanzas in this song are directed towards three men who are coincidentally present and watching the dance performance, Rani (role played by Jaya Bhaduri), is a worldly wise young lady, and a street urchin at that. To compete with and to secure herself in this most perilous environment in which she exists, she has to become one of them, with a tongue that can abuse an curse the most evil, and hands that are adept in swinging the blade of a deadly knife. Her standard masquerade to cheat people, i.e. men, and rob them, is to appear on a less traversed road in the late evening, and pose as a helpless damsel looking for help. And when a victim gets interested, she will start screaming to draw the attention of whatever is the sparse crowd, crying for help against the man. The poor victim, is painted as a trying to outrage her modesty. She blackmails them to cough up some money, in exchange for her to keep quiet.

Prior to this song, these three men are each party to such encounters with her. The first one – a regular junior artist whose name I am not able to recall right away, is a meek fellow who gets conned by Rani. The second one is Shankar (role played by Manoj Kumar), who turns the tables on her, and dares her to shout and gather attention. And the third one is also local street smart mawaali (role played by Manmohan), who fancies Rani to be easy meat for his spurious intentions. For a change, as Rani does a street dance performance, striving also to make some honest money, the three gentlemen appear one by one, to be dealt with appropriately.

Jaya’s performance as Rani is just superb. In 1972, she is very fresh from IFTI, Pune, and her portrayal of a near vagabond and street smart character is quite so convincing. We also see Premnath as the Pathan friend of Shankar, Master Satyajeet as Deepak, the mute son of Shankar, and Manmohan as the local mawaali. Once again, I request help from the more knowledgeable readers to help identify the very familiar junior artist behind the bespectacled thin old man who appears in the first stanza.

So with this post, we bring to a close, the discussion on this cult classic film from Manoj Kumar. Wonderful songs and music galore from his films. Welcome ‘Shor’ to Yippeee-land.

Blog Day : 3468 Post No. : 13923

Now, none of the regulars can say they have not heard this song. In a film that boasts of more than one song that competes for the title of the best song in the film, this song surely is one of the best songs in this film. Wow – that sure is saying something for the quality of songs of this film. In 1962, music director Ravi has been active as an independent music director for about seven years now, and he already has about 30 films behind him, that he has composed for. His films include such notable hits as ‘Ek Saal’ (1957), ‘Dilli Ka Thug’ (1958), ‘Ghar Sansaar’ (1958), ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960), ‘Ghunghat’ (1960), ‘Gharaana’ (1961), ‘Modern Girl’ (1961), ‘Bombay Ka Chor’ (1962) and many more. And then in 1962, out comes this Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen starrer called ‘China Town’ – and the popular response is “Baar Baar Dekho, Hazaar Baar Dekho”. Oh yes, the songs of this film – one just does not feel done with them, no matter how many times you have heard them.

Produced and directed by Shakti Samant, the cast of actors includes such notables – Shammi Kapoor, Shakila, Helen, Madan Puri, SN Bannerjee, Keshav Rana, TunTun, Rashid Khan, Polson, Samson, Shetty, Jeevankala, Mridula and about twenty more names.  Songwriter of all the eight songs in this film is Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music, already mentioned, is by Ravi.

Eight songs in all, seven of which have already been showcased on our blog. And we come to the yippeee night for this film, brining on board this last, but not the least, songs of this film. It is a lovely composition, and just by listening to it, even without the visual, the image that comes to mind is – Helen. Ravi has tried to recreate the magic of “Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu” – albeit a slower pace, and has done a great composition.

But wait. What is this that I discover? The song that we have always heard in the film, and also as generally available in most uploads – goodness that song is missing from the listings in Geet Kosh. This question took up most of my time today afternoon and evening. I must admit that either I have been forgetful, or plain ignorant. Other folks may already know this, but this song has two versions, which, as I discovered after some leg work on the internet and searching my own collection, are quite different from each other, in terms of wordings. The tune and the melody is exactly the same but the words are noticeably different.

The Geet Kosh listing shows the title of this song as “Laakhon Haseenon Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. But as we play the video clip of this film, this song appears as the film beginning song, with the title line changed to “Rangeen Bahaaron Se Hai Gulzar China Town”. This latter version is the one that is the most available in all the searches one makes online. It is almost as if the former version does not exist. I checked in my collection, and am relieved to find that I have both versions in the folder of this film. And then, with some more intense search online, I am finally also able to locate a Sa Re Ga Ma upload, which is the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. The upload comment specifically states that this recording is from the vinyl record prepared from the sound track. There is some error here possibly, because the sound track version is “Rangeen Bahaaron Se”. I checked some more and then I am able to locate an Eraksoldies upload of an SLBC (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corp) program that presents all songs of this film. Knowing this is an SLBC recording, these songs are quite surely from 78 rpm records. And this selection contains the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version. I checked again in my collection, and sure enough, this version in my collection also is from a 78 rpm recording. So anyways. . .

What may have been the reason to make two versions, is not clear at this time. We know that it was an era that all songs were recorded twice, once for the 78 rpm record, and once for the final sound track. We see many instances that the two versions are different, in that there is either a different antaraa, or an additional antaraa in the sound track version. More noticeably, the difference in the two versions generally is the music – different lengths of preludes and interludes, maybe an extra couplet in the beginning, subtle variations in the music arrangement and the instruments used. However, it is only rarely that we see that there is a considerable variation in the wordings of different lines themselves. It is generally accepted that the 78 rpm version is released first. Also generally that both versions are recorded simultaneously. But yes, there are known cases where these two recordings may have been done at different points in time, as per circumstantial requirements. Recall the song of ‘Chhalia’ (1960) in which the song “Chhalia Mera Naam. . .” was re-recorded for sound track after the censors raised objections to some words in the original recording.

By that logic, it would seem that the “Laakhon Haseenon” waala version is recorded earlier and the “Rangeen Bahaaron Se” version which appears in the sound track was probably done later. The former, 78 rpm version carries two antaraas, and the latter soundtrack version carries three antaraas. And there is a sizeable modifications of words themselves. Now what prompted these wording changes – that needs to be explored. I would request our knowledgeable readers and friends to please add information related to this query.

The earlier songs posted for this film are listed below.

Baar Baar Dekho Hazaar Baar Dekho 617 25-Jan-09
Dekho Ji Ek Baalaa Jogi 3486 2-Feb-11
Yamma Yamma Yamma Tu Parwaana Main Shamma 4858 21-Oct-11
Hum Se Na Poochho Hum Kahaan Chale 11688 24-Dec-15
Ye Rang Na Chhootega Ulfat Ki Nishaani Hai 13586 15-Sep-17
Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar China Chin Chin Chu 13917 14-Jan-18

 

Of the above listed songs, the “Yamma Yamma Yamma. . .” song actually includes two songs, which are listed at nos. 5 and 6 in the Geet Kosh. And the song “Bada Qaatil Hai Mera Yaar. . .” is the song listed at no. 8 in the Geet Kosh.

So we bring to Yippeee land, this most musical film, that started its journey on our blog close to – goodness, nine years. Wow. Maybe one day we shall do an analysis on the patterns in the time taken to bring all songs of a film on board. Maybe it brings out some interesting results.

Enjoy both these “Rangeen Bahaaren” and “Laakhon Haseeen” versions of the song. And welcome ‘China Town’ to Yippeee land. 🙂

[Ed Note: Ah yes, and the titling on the video clip (it is uploaded in the Rajshri channel) is also incorrect. They have captioned the upload as “Thandi Bahaaron Se. . .” whereas it is very clearly heard as ‘Rangeen Bahaaron Se. . .”.]

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing A.R. Rahman a very Happy Birthday!!! He turns 51 today. This music director started his life at a young age of 11 when he played in the orchestra of composers of the stature of Illyaraja, M. S. Viswanathan, M.K. Arjunan (of the Malayalam industry) etc. He has accompanied Zakir Hussain (Hindustani music), Kunnaikudi Vaidyanathan (Carnatic music) etc. on world tours. He is a trained Key- board player along with mastering the piano, synthesizer, harmonium and guitar but is a self-confessed fan of the synthesizer as he feels it is an ideal combination of music and technology. He is known to combine western classical music and carnatic music with folk, reggae, jazz rock etc which gives hours of listening pleasure.

His debut in movies came after his stint as a jingle composer for ads. His first movie was Mani Ratnam’s “Roja” (1992) which got him that year’s national award. His Bollywood debut came in 1995 with Ram Gopal Varma’s “Rangeela” though he was already famous in the Hindi-speaking regions of India through the dubbed versions of his South-Indian films.

Today on his birthday we will have a song from his Hindi debut film “Rangeela”. This movie is the story of a young girl (Urmila Matondkar) who is a chorus dancer in the movies with a passion for filmy dances. She has a childhood friend (Amir Khan) who sells movie tickets outside cinema halls in black. There is also Jackie Shroff who plays a matinee idol who spots this chorus dancer as she practices in the early morning hours on the beach side. He promotes her in the industry and she becomes a star but when it comes to love and marriage, she goes back to her childhood friend. So that then was the story of Rangeela in short.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Aditya Narayan and Mehboob was the lyricist. The song is Urmila’s dream sequence where she is seen dancing through the streets of Navi Mumbai and the local train station in that area of Mumbai. This movie got A.R. Rahman two of his fifteen (Hindi) Filmfare awards – Best Music and R D Burman award for best new talent. {He has sixteen Filmfare awards for his South Indian films}. The movie gave Urmila Matondkar and her designer Manish Malhotra instant recognition in the movies. The film marked the return of Asha Bhonsle with two songs, she had long retired from accepting playback singer awards like her sister. She received a Filmfare special award for the other song – Tanha tanha yahaan pe jeena”.


Song-Yaai re yaai re zor laga ke naache re (Rangeela)(1995) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Aditya Narayan, Lyrics-Mehboob Kotwal MD-A R Rahman

Lyrics

yaai re

mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re

yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re
rang rang rangeela re

itne chehron mein apne chehre ki pehchaan toh ho
pehchaan toh ho
bade bade naamon mein apna bhi naam o nishan toh ho
pehchan toh ho
jeene mein phir toh kya baat ho o
din naya aur nayi raat ho o
har ghadi bas khushi saath ho o o
yaai re
yaai re
zor laga ke naache re
yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re (rangeela re)
rang rang rangeela re (rangeela re)

arrey
yaaron mere paas toh aao
meri mushqil door bhagaao
cadbury bole main meetha hoon
amul bole main meetha hoon
horlicks bole main achchha hoon
complan bole main achchha hoon
kya sabne socha main bachcha hoon
chocolate khane me tension hai
doodh peene mein tension hai
tension tension tension

laanat hai ji us par
duniya mein hi rehkar
duniya me jo jeene ke andaaz ko naa jane
maathe ya haathon pe
chaand ya taaron mein
kismat ko dhoondhe par khud mein kya hai ye naa jaane
khudpe hi hamko yakeen ho,
mushkilen raah ki aasaan ho
donon haathon mein ye jahaan ho o
yaai re
yaai re
zor laga ke naache re
yaai re
yaai re
mil ke dhoom machaaye re
chal mere sang sang
le le duniya ke rang
ho ja rangeela re
rangeela re ae
rang rang rangeela re

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 59 # Rajesh Khanna’s 75th birth anniversary
———————————————–——————————————————-

Today 29th December 2017 is the 75th birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (29.12.1942-18.07.2012).

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Chhaila Babu’.

In the year 1977 there were nine movies (including ‘Tyaag’ which was passed by Censor Board in 1976) of Rajesh Khanna as per following;

SNo Movie Year Date Passed by Censor Board
01 Tyaag 1977 29.07.1976 *
02 Anurodh 1977 31.01.1977
03 Chhaila Babu 1977 20.04.1977
04 Karm 1977 27.04.1977
05 Chalta Purza 1977 16.06.1977
06 Hatyara (Special Appearance) 1977 04.07.1977
07 Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka 1977 18.11.1977
08 Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein 1977 04.11.1977
09 Tinku (Special Appearance) 1977 01.12.1977

From the above list one can conclude that this is a list of flop movies, except ‘Chhaila Babu’ which was a ‘commercially successful movie’, though nowhere in the league as Rajesh Khanna’s earlier hit movies.
Movies like ‘Karm’, ‘Anurodh’, and ‘Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein’ were ‘critically acclaimed’ though.

‘Chhaila Babu – 1977’ a ‘suspense thriller’ was a Mukherji Brothers Presentation. It was produced by Shomu Mukherjee who also wrote the story and screenplay of this film.

It was directed by Joy Mukherjee.

It had Rajesh Khanna in title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, and accompanied by Zeenat Amaan, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev and Ranjeet.

Supported by Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor, Mac Mohan, Manmohan, Sherry, Gulshan Arora, Ashim Kumar, Shyam, Guru Darshan, Manik Dutt, Qureshi, Uttam, Yeshraj, Vinod Thakkar, Harun, Johny Whisky, Dhanna, Master Salim, Aziz Asser, Raghubir, Prem and others.

Its lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi, and music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Dialogues of this film were written by Kader Khan and it was edited by B.S. Glaad.

I have vague memories of watching this movie with my parents and vaguely remember the movie’s storyline and songs.
I have earlier shared two songs of this movie ‘Kal raat sadak pe ek ladki ’ and ‘Hamko nikaaloge ghar se sajan pachhtaaoge ’.

The most popular song of this movie Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye was the first song to be posted on the blog and it was discussed by Atul ji way back in 2008 (08.12.2008).

The other two songs were posted on 29.12.2014 and 04.02.2015 respectively.

As per HFGK this movie had total Seven songs (including one multiple version song). But, I think it should be six only. This needs to be checked and shall be discussed in future with the remaining song of this movie). Out of these seven songs we have so far three songs already covered on the blog.

I can say that all the songs from this movie are nice hummable song though only this song Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye could make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ that year in 1977 and so far it had been the most popular song from this movie. It was ranked 18th in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1977.

However, going back to the songs of this movie and listening to them after a gap of so many years is an interesting exercise and it brings back fond memories of those years.

Today’s song ‘main baaboo chhaila’ is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip synced by Rajesh Khanna on screen. The picturisation of this song shows Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Asrani is following them.

After watching the video, I thought it must be shot on the locations in Kashmir (? though not sure), (as the film’s titles do not mention names of any outdoor shooting locations). However, the titles did mention the name of ‘Filmalaya Studios’ where the movie or its parts must have been shot).

Let us revive the magic of ‘Kishore Kumar-Rajesh Khanna’ Jodi, with Kaka’s favorite lyrics writer – Anand Bakshi – there, but for a change – composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us now enjoy today’s song!!

Ye jo apne peechhe daude
Beemaari peechha na chhode
Aise premi aise paagal
Duniya mein milte hain thhode
Jaane ye hain paan ka chhakkaa
Ya chidiyaa ka nehlaa
Aaj se main ban gayaa re Majnoon
Dekh ke tujhko lailaa
Ha ha haa haa

Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa

Ham jaise deewaane aksar
Jaan bhi de dete hain hans kar
Ham jaise deewaane aksar
Jaan bhi de dete hain hans kar
Gham na kar bas shauq se dilbar
Teer chalaaye ja seene par
Toot gaya dil mera to kya
Tera dil to behlaa
Aaj se main ban gayaa re Majnoon
Dekh ke tujhko lailaa
Oye chhailaa
Hey
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo

Ye naam thaa meraa pehlaa

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 58 # Remembering Singer-Poet – Kavi Pradeep #
———————————————–—————————————————-

Today (11th December, 2017 is the nineteenth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.02.1915 – 11.12.1998) of Ramchandra Narayanji Dwivedi whom we fondly remember and whose name has been engraved in the history of Indian Cinema and Poetry as Kavi Pradeep.

On this occasion here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa-1975” which is penned by Kavi Pradeep (he has written all the six songs for this movie) and also lent his voice to the background version of this (today’s) song in the movie.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma.
It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’.

Bharat Bhushan makes an ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The seventies was a very special decade for Hindi movies. It saw the emergence of the first superstar of the industry and later on the rise of an angry young man on screen. Action films, formula films, multi starrer movies came to the fore in this decade. Story presentation and action underwent changes from the earlier decades. Towards the end of the decade, we found disco music entering in Hindi film music in a big way.

This decade also saw one of the greatest mythological hit of all times viz. ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ in 1975.

Released in the same year as Sholay, this was a low budget movie but later on created records for collection. I have blurred memories about tales that many women started ‘santoshi maata vrat’ after watching this movie.

All the songs of this movie were very popular. Today’s song in particular holds a special nostalgic value for me.

I was just above 7 years old at that time. I remember that we watched both Sholay and Jai Santoshi Maa on the same day at Akola. I remember the name of the theatres. ‘Shalini’ talkies, which had that typical theatre like built inside and ‘Manek’ talkies – one of the old in the city and still maintained well and spacious.

Today when I checked the release dates of both these movies, I find that “Jai Santoshi Maa” was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and “Sholay” was passed by Censor Board on 12.08.1975).

The song being presented today has two versions. One version is sung by Kavi Pradeep and the other by Mahendra Kapoor with chorus in both of them. music is given by C. Arjun and lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep ji.

This song, oozing with devotion and spirituality has a calming effect on me and it puts me at peace. No wonder that this is a song that I like to listen to again and again.

(Note: – In HFGK Vol-V this song is mentioned as appearing at number two and six, which normally should be in the order of appearing of the songs in the movie. However, I would like to mention here that this needs to be corrected in HFGK as in the movie this song appears at number one and two respectively in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Kavi Pradeep.

HFGK mentions the song ‘main to aarti utaaroon re’ at number one while in the movie it comes at number number five. And, at number six is the last song of the movie ‘madad karo he… madad karo santoshi maata’).

Let us now listen to this wonderful song …
