(A tribute to Lata Mangeshkar on her first ‘Remembrance Anniversary’)

Today we pay our tributes to the greatest singer of our country Late Lata Mangeshkar on her ‘first Remembrance Anniversary’ on 6 February 2023.

She passed away last year in 2022 on this day.

As a tribute to her today I am presenting a ‘lesser-heard’ song from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Aur Kaun’. I was not aware of this song anytime in the past. I was aware of the name of the movie, though which was released in my childhood and was ‘certified’ as an ‘adult movie’, thus ruling out any chances that I would be able to watch it during its first run. . As luck would have it, I never got an opportunity to watch this movie. (Watching it on Internet is the most uncomfortable thing for me so I have not tried it. May be in future if it is required I will try 🙂 ).

Recently when I was browsing the blog and I came across this movie, I noticed that only one song from this movie was posted on the blog and that too long back on 01.05.2009. This song is ‘haan pehli baar ek ladki mera haathh pakad kar….’, which no doubt is the most well-known song from this movie I guess.

At least I can say that I am familiar with this song. But when I looked for the other songs from this movie they didn’t look familiar to me. However, when I listened to the song under discussion in this post,it reminds me of couple ‘pre-Himmatwaala’ period Bappi Lahiri compositions that I had shared in the blog in the past.of songs composed by Bappi Lahiri from the ‘pre-Himmatwaala’ period and those I have shared on the blog so far, namely songs from ‘Paapi-1977’ and ‘Saboot-1980’. One common thing about these songs is that they are sung by none other than Lata Mangeshkar.

So I think this rare song (the ‘YouTube’ link say so) suits the occasion perfectly when we are paying our tributes to Lata Mangeshkar.

This is the only song that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in this movie ‘Aur Kaun-1979’.

Padmini Kapila lip syncs this “bhootiya” “gumnaam hai koi” genre of song on screen and actor Sachin, like archtypical hero of such horror films, tend to get drawn towards the source of the song and thusfalling into the trap trap.(That is my guess from watching the video of this song).

“Aur Kaun-1979” was directed by Tulsi Ramsay and Shyam Ramsay for ‘Ramsay Pictures’ or their home production.

It had Sachin, Rajni Sharma, Padmini Kapila, Roopesh Kumar, Sudhir, Vimal Sahu, Kanchan Mattu, Birbal, Om Shivpuri and others.

Madan Puri and Nazir Hussain had a friendly appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.01.1979.

This movie had four songs (as per detail given below), which were written by Amit Khanna and composed by Bappi Lahiri.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Haan pehli baar Kishore Kumar 01.05.2009
02 Hoon … raat aayi re, ho saath laayi re Bappi Lahiri, Sulakshana Pandit, chorus
03 Aur kaun aayegaa aa Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dilwaali kidhar se aayi hai Vijayeta Pandit, chorus

Today’s song is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Let us now listen to the song, which is the title song of the movie and pay our tributes to Lata Mangeshkar.

(A tribute to Vijay Anand – The Director)
——————————————–

Today 22nd Janunary’202 is the eighty-nineth birth anniversary of Vijay Anand. He was born on 22nd January’1934 and passed away on 23rd February’2004.

Vijay Anand was one of the greatest director and editor of Hindi Cinema. He also produced movies, acted in movies, wrote movies and even wrote lyrics.

Vijay Anand left behind his legacy of movies that are called ‘Vijay Anand movies’ that would be remembered forever and will always be a part of Hindi Cinema History. He has left behind an indelible mark of his ‘art and craftsmanship’ in the movies he has directed and /or edited or both.

I am a big fan of Vijay Anand. I had earlier presented a brief post on him on the blog.

Our seniors on the blog and especially Shri Sudhir ji have written passionate posts on Vijay Anand on the blog. I am reproducing a brief about Vijay Anand that Shri Sudhir ji had mentioned in this post.

Really very few artists and film makers in the industry have been as versatile as Vijay Anand has been. Active in the industry since the early 1950s, Vijay is the youngest of the three Anand brothers. He did have an advantage of two elder siblings, Chetan Anand and Dev Anand, having made a place for themselves in the industry, when he also decided to take the plunge. And under the umbrella of his illustrious seniors, he had the opportunity to delve and develop a multi-faceted career. In a career that spans more than five decades, Vijay Anand, or Goldie as he was known to his friends, made his mark as a screenplay and dialogue writer, as a director, as a producer, as an editor, and as an actor. His works are limited, given the span of his career, but the quality of his work speaks for itself. The films he has directed are outstanding, and he is acknowledged as the best director for picturization of songs, in the Indian film industry. In this aspect of film making, which is supremely significant given the musical nature of Indian cinema, he is without a peer.

Our Shri Sadanand ji had mentioned this while writing about Vijay Anand in this post:-.

This song is our tribute to Vijay Anand whose birth day falls on January 22nd. That he was a talented person from a very young age can be gauged by the fact that at the age of 16, he became assistant director in ‘Afsar’ (1950). Due to a sudden illness of Chetan Anand, who directed the film ‘Funtoosh’ (1954), Vijay Anand directed a song ‘hey meri topi palat ke aa’ in the film at the age of 20. At the age of 23, he scripted and directed a box office hit ‘Nau Do Gyarah’ (1957).

There is one detailed post on Vijay Anand written by Shri Sudhir ji with the song ‘andhi parja andha raja takey ser bhaaji takey ser khaaja’ presented on the blog on 22nd Jaunary’2018 as a tribute to Vijay Anand on his birth anniversary.

In this post on the birth anniversary of Vijay Anand we today pay our tributes to him and listen to a song from one of the movies. He produced, directed, wrote, edited and also wrote three out of the seven songs in this movie.

We are all aware that the movies by ‘Navketans’ always had good music and they are known for their music as well. If one browse this blog and check the list of movies which are directed by Vijay Anand one can see that almost all of them have been covered with all of their songs on the blog or as we say they have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog, except the surprise which is the today’s movie.

Today’s movie is ‘Chhupaa Rustom-1973’.

Here is a brief about this movie mentioned by Shri Sudhir ji in his post on the blog.

‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973) is a crime thriller from the house of Navketan. Produced by Dev Anand, the film is directed by Vijay Anand. It is for this film that Goldie shares the credits for song writing with Neeraj. The film is loosely based on the action thriller novel ‘Fear Is The Key’ by the British author Alistair MacLean. The acting credits are impressive and include Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Vijay Anand, Bindu, Prem Chopra, Ajit, Sajjan, Veena, Premnath, AK Hangal, Rashid Khan, Shyam Kumar, Sudhir, Uma Dutt, Kaamraan, Nawab, and many more. The music composition is by SD Burman.
The storyline revolves around a treasure city of gold that is discovered under the glaciers of Himalayas by an archaeologist, played by AK Hangal. The information about the probable existence of such a treasure is also with a group of gangsters led by Ajit. Weather conditions go bad, Hangal is separated from his team and lands up at the camp of gangsters. Recognizing him, the gangsters capture him. He is tortured, but refuses to give the location information to Ajit. Meanwhile, Dev Anand, who is the son of Hangal, begins to search for his father, after losing contact with him. He is actually a police officer, and Vijay Anand is an associate. The storyline follows their efforts to track his father. The trail takes them to the wedding of Hema Malini, daughter of a rich man (Sajjan). The awkward alliance is with Prem Chopra, son of Ajit, for reasons of business coercion. Dev and his team kidnap Hema Malini, and get Ajit and his henchmen after them. The ruse is to somehow get the gangsters interested in Dev Anand, as the only person who can decipher the secret diary of Hangal, who is in the Ajit’s custody. After more machinations, finally Dev Anand leads Ajit and Prem Chopra to the treasure, only to trap them in the underground vault, and extract their confessions under the fear of death.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my father when was a child. I do not remember anything about this movie except the today’s song (which is a qawwali) of which the ‘mukhda’ has always been in my memory may be it has been imbibed on my mind since years. And then the other song which I am familiar is from this movie is of course ‘dheere se jaana khatiyan mein’.

Though during all these years I do not remember to have attentively listened to any songs of this movie and that is why when I checked and found that lyrics for the remaining songs of this movie have been lying shared by Prakash ji.

And what a song this is, rather a ‘qawwali’ penned by none other than Neeraj ji, composed by S.D. Burman and sung by Manna Dey.

The thrill of listening and watching this ‘qawwali’ cannot be explained in words.
Just enjoy it!!!

Dev Anand is performing on screen and we can see Sajjan, Hema Malini, Ajit, Prem Chopra and others in the picturisation of this song.

We remember Vijay Anand and pay our tributes to the DIRECTOR in him!!!

——————————————-——————————

Today’s song in this series is from the movie ‘Jeewan Sukh’.

I guess this was an obscure movie of its time and it must have been forgotten easily. I could not find any video of this movie on internet and I think that this also seems to be unavailable as of now on internet.

“Jeewan Sukh-1973” was directed by Debu Sen for ‘Suman Productions’.

It had Dheeraj, Monica (New discovery), Nargis Banu, Anand Chaini, Nazeer Hussain, Dhumal, Asit Sen, Darshan, Niliman Pal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Praveen Pal, Mushtaq, Shirli, Bihari, Jhumru, Prakash Thapa, Hardeep, Dhananjay, Sanjana, Jankidas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.03.1973.

This movie has four songs written by three lyricists. Naqsh Lyallpuri had written two songs, and Janisar Akhtar and Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ had written one song each.

Music of this movie was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Do nigaahen teri, do nigaahen meri Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
02 Meri paayal kahin na kuchh kah de Naqsh Lyallpuri Asha Bhonsle
03 Hans le gaa le, jee le mere pyaare Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’ Manna Dey
04 Ab kisliye uthhayen ehsaan zindagi ke Janisar Akhtar Naseem Banu

Today this movie ‘Jeewan Sukh-1973’ makes its debut on the blog with a song sung by Manna Dey.
Lyrics are are Ved Kumar ‘Saroj’, who, I guess, will also be making a debut on the blog as Lyrics writer.

Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

As mentioned above only audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs and other information about this movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Editor’s note:-This song is the 600th song of Manna Dey in the blog as a playback singer.

Today’s song is the Title song from the film Chameli ki shaadi-1986.

This is one of my favourite films, amongst the hundreds of films that I have seen since the 1940’s decade. As such I love seeing genuine comedy films. Every Hindi film has atleast one or two comedy scenes. In earlier films, there used to be a specialist actor – the Comedian. Nowadays, especially from the Amitabh times, the film’s Hero does the comedy scenes, stunt scenes and emotional scenes himself, thus eliminating the comedy specialists totally. After Asrani, paintal and others of their ilk, I don’t think any major comedy specialist rose in Hindi films.

The first comedy film, after the Talkie films started, was made almost immediately. It was made by Ranjit Movietone and the film was “Bhutia Mahal”-1932. We do not know about its plot or any other information , other than what is given in the HFGK. Subsequently many comedy films came. The first ever comedy film which I remember having seen was ” Ek thi Ladki ”-1949. I really enjoyed that film. Later on I have seen it several times. Being fond of comedy films, I never missed them. In the 50’s there were several films like Bhagam Bhag, New Delhi, Hum sab chor hain etc etc. During the VCR times, I saw many comedy films-some new some repeat times. Though I had stopped visiting Cinema halls since the 80’s, most newer comedy films were watched either on VCR or the TV. Film Chameli ki shaadi-1986 is one of the Top Ten comedy films I ever saw.

Anil kapoor is not my favourite actor, nor is Amrita Singh. The director Basu Chatterjee, of course, was my favourite. One of the other actors of this film-Amjad khan’s image was etched as Gabbar Singh in my mind. However, in this film he proved his versatility in doing a comic role too. Annu kapoor, pankaj Kapoor and Bharati Achrekar are known experts and they too chipped in their comedy parts.

Anil Kapoor actually started his career with acting in different languages. His first film was Hamare Tumhare-1979, his other film was a Telugu film-‘ Vansh vriksham’-1980 and a Kannada film ‘ Pallavi Anupallavi’-1983. His career took a positive turn with the film ‘ Mashal ‘-1984. I have seen his films, Mr. India-87, Tezab-88, Ram lakhan-89, Bibi No.1-99 and Nayak-2000. Not many actually, considering his large number of films in Hindi.

As far as Amrita Singh is considered, honestly, I always considered her with masculine features and her marriage with 12 years younger Saif Ali khan and her conversion was keeping her low in my eyes. I have seen only one of her films and that was Chameli ki Shaadi-1986. She has done a superb job in it. Hats off to Basu Chatterjee, who used all her typical girlish characteristics. Here is the film’s story….

Charandas is a fledgling wrestler who lives with brother Bhajandas. According to Bhajandas, Charandas should marry and start a family of his own. But Charan is hell bent on becoming a wrestler and is even ready to remain a bachelor until 40 as per the norms of Mastram. However, one day, Charan’s thoughts are challenged when he sees Chameli at Kallumal’s coal depot. He realizes that to marry her, he may have to leave Mastram’s Akhara.

Charan does so and seeks help from Advocate Harish, a close friend of his brother. Harish appreciates Charan’s love and is ready to help him. Charan dares to confess his love to Chameli. On other hand, Anita, Chameli’s best friend is also convinced of Chameli’s true love. The lover duo start meeting secretly. One day, however, the love affair is exposed when a relative of Chameli spots the duo in a restaurant.

The respective families soon take up cudgels against their wards and make it clear that they won’t allow inter-caste marriage. Chameli is kept under house arrest and her parents decide to have her marry one of their acquaintances. Charan learns of this development. Mastram is surprisingly supportive of Charan’s love. He explains that just as bachelorhood is a challenge for would-be wrestlers, a lover should not back out from the challenge posed by the world.

Mastram, along with Charan’s friends, backs the lovers to overcome the obstacles. Here, Champa calls in the help of her rogue brother Chhadam Lal aka Chhadmi against Charan. With the help of Harish and all his friends, Charan chalks out a plan to rescue Chameli from her house. As per the plan, Charan abducts Chameli from her own house, while Harish sees to it that the duo legally get married. Charan and Chameli are initially frightened, but Harish convinces them by telling them that as long as people do not dare to marry outside the caste like them, Indians will never be truly united.

Meanwhile, on learning that Chameli is missing, her parents lodge a complaint against Charan. They proceed to the place where Charan and Chameli are going to get married. Meanwhile, Bhajandas also comes with his men to disrupt the marriage. Both the parties have arrived late, as Charandas and Chameli are legally husband and wife now. They vent their ire on Harish, who according to them is responsible for corrupting the duo. Harish takes Kallumal aside and explains that if the marriage is permitted by him, he will garner votes of both the castes in the election because his son in law is the leader of all the young people and also has support from the akhadas.

Convinced by the argument of Harish, Kallumal relents because of being enticed by the illusion of winning the local election. Similarly, Harish tells Bhajandas that an influential Kallumal is sure to win the elections. If Bhajandas accepts the marriage, he will get special perks for his coal business thanks to Kallumal. Besides, he will get coal and cement at a subsidized rate from Kallumal. Bhajandas becomes greedy and relents. In the end, Chameli and Charandas are united with the blessing from both the parties.

I sometimes see the comedy scene videos of this film on YouTube and get myself cheered up. My most favourite scene is when Anil, Amrita and Komal toton a big Hotel for a date. I have seen this video so many times, that I have learnt that YouTube has decided to ban me from seeing it anymore ! Now that the name of Komal has come up here, how many of us know anything about this lovely looking dance expert who was also known as ” Rupini ” ? Here is some information about her which will surprise the readers, I am sure.

Komal Mahuvakar was born in Mumbai in a well educated family. Her father was a Lawyer and mother a famous Dietician, attached to big Hospitals like Leelavati, Breach Candy and Jaslok. While schooling, she learnt classical dancing. She was accidentally spotted by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and he met her parents. He offered Child roles to her in films like Mili-1975, Kotwal Saab-1977 and Khoobsurat-1980. She also worked in films like Des pardes-78 and Saanch ko aanch nahin-1979. She did her first film as a Heroine -Payal ki Jhankaar-1980.

After this she took a new name “RUPINI ” and went Southwards. We know many south indian actresses like Rekha, Hema Malini, Padmini, Shri Devi etc, who made a name in Hindi films. But we do not know much about Bombay girls going south and making a name for themselves. Komal Mahuvakar aka ‘ Rupini’ worked in 35 Tamil films, 10 Kannada films, 5 Malayalam films and 2 Telugu films. She also worked in 19 Hindi films upto 1989. Rest of the time, she was busy working in the South.

She left films in 1996. She married Mr. Raina, a successful Businessman, having a big Bungalow in Chembur, Mumbai. They have 1 daughter – Anisha. Komal and her husband have opened a big Heart Hospital in Chembur. She also started Dance classes for aspirants. presently she is leading an active life in Mumbai.

In the beginning of Talkie films, most heroes had to sing their songs themselves and it was a troublesome job for the Music Directors to make the non-singer hero sing a song as per their tune. There were some stars who knew or had the singing skill, like actor Surendra (152 songs in 40 films), with whom it was no problem. When the playback system came into full swing in the early 1940’s, the Music Directors heaved a sigh of relief. Actually, Naushad is on record having said ” it was tedious hard work to get the non-singer actors to sing a song. Playback has freed us from this torture !” Thereafter everything seemed to be in order. Actors acted and singers gave them playback.

Then at the end of the 40’s Raj kapoor sang 3 songs for himself in 3 films. He was of course a trained singer, but it started a different trend. His brother Shammi kapoor sang 1 song in his film-Jeewan Jyoti-1953. His younger brother Shashi kapoor sang 2 songs in 2 of his films. Both were non singers. The next generation saw many more actors singing their own songs. This was the time when Actors ruled the industry. The MDs or producers had no guts to say No to them.

Akshay Kumar sang 6 songs in 6 films.
Shatrughna Sinha sang 9 songs in 9 films.
Amir Khan sang 13 songs in 10 films.
Shahrukh khan sang 10 songs in 10 films.

Above all, can you imagine, the Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has sung 64 songs in 44 films !!! (all stats from muVyz).

None of these actors were trained singers. No wonder Anil kapoor also wanted to sing in his own films. He has sung 4 songs in 4 films. His first song was in Chameli ki Shaadi-1986. The others were from Andaz-94, Hamara dil aapke paas hai-2000 and tashan-2008. I read somewhere that Anil approached the MD Kalyanji-Anand ji and requested them for a song in this film.When they agreed, he cautioned them that it was his first time and that they should make it very simple to sing. As a way out, a Title song was created. He did quite a good job of it with hard work during rehearsals and the song was passed in the first take of recording itself !

Today’s song has a lilting, simple but haunting tune. Anil Kapoor sang it nicely. Enjoy his Debut song…

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Actress Rameshwari’s Birthday)
——————————————-——————————

Today 6th January is the birthday of actress Rameshwari or Talluri Rameshwari.

She made her debut in Hindi movies with ‘Dulhan Wahi Jo Piyar Man Bhaaye-1977’.

Starting from a humble beginning in a ‘middle class family’ and making to films was an exciting journey for her and it just happened that what she dreamed keep coming her way and in spite of her ‘middle class environment’ at home she ended up in making a career in films. Though she did not do many films later after getting married and having children.

Here is an interesting article about her and her journey into the films which I come across during the preparation of this post. I would request interested readers to go through this detailed article to read about Rameshwari and her experiences while working in the movies.

For today’s presentation I have selected a song from the movie “Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki”(1980).

“Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki” was directed by Hiren Nag for ‘Ranglok Films, Bombay. It had Ashok Kumar, Rameshwari, Raj Kiran, Shashikala, Madan Puri, Dina Pathak, Sundar, Raj Babbar, Tun Tun and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.10.1980.

“Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki” has five songs all written by Ravindra Jain. He also composed the music for this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ek chidiya bina par ki Hemlata, Minoo Purushottam, Chetan

05 Hi honey hi hi honey Manna Dey, Dilraj Kaur, chorus 13.10.2017

As can be seen from the above table only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog. That song was posted on 13.10.2017.

Today’s song is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog today.

It is sung by Hemlata and it is picturised on Rameshwari. Raj Kiran and others can also be seen in the picturisation.

Let us listen to today’s song, which is the title song of the movie, and wish Rameshwari a very happy birthday and a happy, healthy, and peaceful life ahead…

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1975)
——————————————-——————————

(A tribute to actor Om Puri- On his Remembrance Day)

Today 6th January 2022 is sixth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of one of the finest actors this country has produced. We are all aware of his talent and he has acted in several international films too.

He was born on 18th October 1950 in Ambala-Punjab.

He is none other than our beloved Om Puri. An actor without a face or rather a ‘cinematic face’ as he was ridiculed at the FTII Pune during his days there. I remember, there was an article about him in a Marathi magazine or Newspaper (I do not remember correctly) titled ‘bin chehryacha kalaawant’ (literally meaning ‘an actor without a face’) after ‘Ardhsatya’ had released.

I also remember that I had watched this movie after passing my matriculation exams that year in 1983. Later on I got to watch many of his movies on TV and also watched the show ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ where he appeared as an actor and was a commentator too.

I also remember his role in ‘Kakkaji Kahin’ – a TV serial- which I like very much. (I wish it should be ‘telecast’ again).

There is a long list of his movies I watched and wherein I like the characters he played. I am not going to mention the list and others details in today’s post here.

His struggles since his childhood days and later on how he reach to the National School of Drama and from there to the FTII Pune and how he reach to the mainstream cinema speaks a lot about his character and the person he was. From FTII Pune to mainstream Cinema and displaying his talent in acting is like a ‘dream story’.

He was famous for his ‘outspokenness’ and calling a spade ‘a spade’ and that many times landed him in controversies too. His personal life had also not gone well for him which hastened his ill health and that may have also been resulted an un-timely death of this ‘greatest actors’.
Missing him is like missing someone from your very near and dear ones.

It was shocking news for me the day he passed away or rather the next day of his death when the news broke in the next day morning to me. (I was at Anand that day. I and my wife had come from Nagpur to meet our daughters who were studying at Vidyanagar then.).

Today as a tribute to him I present a song from a lesser known or obscure movie ‘Chor Chor Chhup Jaa-1975’.
This is said to be the first film of Om Puri.

This movie was a ‘children’s movie’.

It was directed by B.V. Karanth for ‘Children’s Film Society of India’ and ‘Karanth Associates’

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.11.1975.

It had Om Puri (chor), Prasad Tagat (Madhav) and Bandar (Ramu), Dr. N. Ratna, Vishwanath Mirle, Ratna Vishwanath, Aster Anantmurty, Sheela Rao,

Mohan and Zareena are singers whose voices are used in the only song this movie has.

The idea of the story and scenario is by Dr. N. Ratna.

Editing of this movie was done by P. Bhaktavatsalam. The dialogues of this movie were written by Bansi Kaul who was also the Deputy Director of this movie.

Screenplay was written by B.V. Karanth and he also composed the music for this movie.

Here is a short note about what this movie is all about taken from ‘worldcat.org’ –B.V. Karanth page.

Madhav a mute kid has too many wonderful toys, but no friends to play with. He befriends Ramu, a monkey and his owner, a thief. This strange friendship has an unexpected affect. In trying to talk to the monkey, Madhav begins speaking haltingly, while Ramu’s thieving owner moved by the child’s innocence decides to give up stealing.
What happens next?

Luckily this movie is available on ‘Youtube’ and those interested can watch it there.

I am very much thankful to the up-loader of this movie.

I watched this movie and enjoyed it as I always have a liking for such type of movies.

As mentioned about today’s song is sung by Mohan and Zareena (HFGK mentions Rubeena) which on screen is lip synced by Om Puri (first part) and Prasad Tagat (second part).

This is a playful song which happens when the child, the ‘chor’ and the Bandar ‘ramu’ are playing ‘hide and seek’ game and the second part is when the ‘chor’ and his ‘bandar’ leave the kid at his home …

Let us enjoy today’s song and watch the young Om Puri in his first film (if the sources are correct).

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet #
—————————————–
(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri# 11– The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

We still have one day to go to enter the new year ‘2023’. However, celebrations have started in other parts of the world and generally the joyful atmosphere prevails in this part too. For many people the ‘new year fever’ begins from the day of ‘Christmas’ and continues till first week of January in the new year.

For many like me everyday is new day and a new beginning. It begins with music everyday and ends with music every day while the daily routine & activities continues including functions at individual workplaces.

We cannot say that all may be in the same jovial mood. Many might be in sombre mood for one reason or another. While some people may be celebrating, others might be performing duty. People of armed forces and law enforcing agencies are cases in point.

At my workplace the principal employer is celebrating annual day, so they arranged a sports day and conducted matches on 25th Dec and the remaining matches are to be held on 31st Dec. Then on 30th they arranged a ‘special lunch’ for all including workmen, as well as ‘awards’ for services and discipline at the end of the day.

However, my department i.e., the people working in the Warehouse had to back-off from participating in sports and all other recreational activities due to an audit planned in the first week of the new year.

Everybody of us will be working on saturday (31st) and Sunday(first day of the year) compulsorily, while all others will be celebrating on these two days that happen to be natural holidays.

Nevertheless me and my colleagues accompanying me in everyday travel from home to office and office to home are going to celebrate with ‘music’ as we celebrate everyday while travelling. And will celebrate the memories of movies during the little ‘relaxation’ timings at workplace.

At the end of every year, I wish that the last one week or few days should be celebrated with a ‘party’ song and with a song of ‘ a new year’.

Today’s song is a party song and from the video of this song we can see that it is happening at party for a ‘new year’…

So here is this well-known song not posted on the blog so far…

This song is from the movie ‘Dil Se Mile Dil-1978’.

“Dil Se Mile Dil-1978” was directed by Bhishm Kohli for ‘Kailashpati Pictures, Bombay’. It had Bhishm Kohli, Shyamli, Om Shivpuri, Leela Mishra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Gautam Sarin, Jayshree T., Madhup Sharma, Bharat Kapoor, Julie, Shankar Bhake, Vimal Chopra, Shriram Shastri, Gurbachan, Adolf Fernandes, Vijay Bali, Mahendra Tyagi, Salim Khan, and others.

Mehmood, Shakti Kapoor and Lalita Pawar had guest appearances in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.08.1978.

This movie has five songs (including one two-part song) written by Amit Khanna.
Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Here is the list of songs of this movie :-

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 He… haathon mein mere bhi mehndi lagaao Sulakshana Pandit, Vijayeta Pandit
02 Dil se miley dil … (in two parts) Kishore Kumar (chorus)
03 Ye nainaa ye kaajal Kishore Kumar 13 October 2014
04 Ae… chhodo bhi ye nakhhara karo pyaar ham se Lata Mangeshkar
05 Aabraa kadaabra hinchi…aflaatoon Bappi Lahiri, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar, and I remember this song was frequently heard in those years. This song was on ‘paaydaan’ number twenty-six in the list of ‘annual Binaca Geetmala of 1978’ among the top ‘34’ songs of that year.
However, I didn’t like this song during its time that came during my growing years, and I found it irritating whenever it played on the radio.
I had never listened to it attentively unlike now while preparing for this post. On the other hand, I like the other Kishore Kumar song from this movie which is ‘ye nainaa ye kaajal’. I had shared it on the blog when I become associated with this blog. The first time I fell in love with this song was in ‘1987’ when HMV had released a ‘four-cassette’ album as ‘ a tribute to the legend – Kishore Kumar’ after he had passed away.

I think this movie was screened at our colony during the weekly screening of movie. But I do not remember anything about this movie and its details.

Today’s song is lip-synced on screen by Bhishm Kohli who used to act like ‘Dev Anand’ and I guess it is actress Shyamli sitting there as we see in the picturisation of the song. The picturisation also shows some regular faces of Hindi movies (whom I am unable to identify by names).

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and lyrics are written by Amit Khanna.
Bappi Lahiri is the composer of this today’s song.

Let us listen to this wonderful song now and enjoy music …

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Bikhhre Moti-1971)
—————————————

Theme songs and or background songs is the common feature in Hindi films. I think it was more common especially in the Hindi movies from the seventies. Such songs also help to push the narrative of the story. They also help to show the growth and transformation of the characters through different phases of life in the movie.

I had always liked such songs very much as most of the time their lyrics are quite philosophical and motivational in general.

I am planning to present such songs yet to be presented here in the coming future. Today’s song is one such song from the ‘1971’ movie ‘Bikhre Moti’. I was under the impression that this movie has already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. May be I was confused with the other movies having ‘Moti’ in their titles.

“Bikhre Moti-1971” was directed by Chanakya for ‘Gita Shree Films’.

It was produced by Omee Arora.

It had Jeetendra, Babita, Sujit Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tarun Bose, Asit Sen, Shabnam, Irshad Panjtan, Murad, Uma Dutt, C.S. Dubey, Chand, Yusuf, Prem, Roma, Baby Shobha, Baby Nasarat, Master Ratan, Master Manoj, with Helen and Kamini Kaushal.

Story of this movie was written by C. Kugunathan. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwamitra Adil.
Editing of this film was done by Ramrao.

This movie had five songs in it (including today’s song which is played in parts in the movie).
Lyrics for all the songs of this movie were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this film was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the brief about this movie, which I have taken as it is from the movie link available on ‘YouTube’.

Sulochana (Kamini Kaushal) is a young mother who accepts forced widow-hood and has to leave her home with her two sons. She gets involved in an accident while saving the life of a millionaire’s only daughter Leela and ends up losing her two sons.
The millionaire, by his will, names Sulochana as the guardian of Leela before his death. Fate ordains her sons Anand (Jeetendra) and Gopi (Sujit Kumar) to grow up in totally different environments. Anand gets rescued by Inspector Ram Prakash (Nazir Hussain) and grows up to be a police officer while Gopi grows to be a notorious criminal.
Unaware of their relationship, Gopi and Anand become arch enemies, when they both fall in love with Leela (Babita). Gopi sets out to end Anand and takes the help of Jeevan (Tarun Bose) a murderer released from jail. (Unquote)
Jeevan is the person who is none other than the father of the two siblings Anand and Gopi?
So, what happens next? , That is something to watch in the movie.

The above brief will also give readers a background about the today’s ‘background’ 🙂 song.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor who has sung many such background songs and they suited him too.

Video of this song is not available. And the audio available does not have the third stanza of this song. Also the first three lines before the ‘mukhda’ of this song are not available on the audios that I have been able to come across so far.

If one carefully goes through the lyrics of these first three lines of the song and the lyrics of the third stanza of this song one can easily guess that what is ‘lost at the start of the movie’, ‘all comes back’ at the end of the movie.

Also, from the song it is clear that the ‘central character’ in this song is ‘Sulochana’ ‘the mother’ played by Kamini Kaushal.

(The first part of this song is played immediately at the beginning of the movie after the ‘production logo’ (at 00:51 to 03:48). The titles are rolled as the first stanza is played in the background and end with it there. This is when Sulochana is devastated as her husband deserts her with the two children.

The second time this song is played in the movie at 14:21 to 16:31 where the first stanza is played again and this time the second stanza is played in addition to the first one. This part happens when Sulochana has already been separated from her two sons and she is at the millionaire’s home and wants to leave them. However the daughter of the millionaire, the doctor and other members in that family requests her to help and take care of the little girl who by now thinks Sulochana as her mother.

The third stanza of this song is played at the ‘happy end (:) ) of this movie at 02:14:07 to 2:15:19 where the movie ends. The separated family finally gets united in the end of the movie and this third part of the song is played then.)

‘Bikhre Moti-1971’ has five songs in it as per list given below.

SNo. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jalti rahe teri mamta ki jyoti Mahendra Kapoor Being presented today
02 Main bhi sochoon door khada ae kaun hai Asha Bhonsle
03 Ye jo ladki hai Mohd Rafi, Lata 03.09.2014
04 O zaraa dekh chalna haay haay haay Mohd Rafi
05 Ek nazar chaahoon main halki halki Asha Bhonsle

As we can see from the above table only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog so far.

Today’s song sung by Mahendra Kapoor is the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

With this song, Mahendra Kapoor now has 400 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

Song-Jalti rahe meri mamta ki jyoti (Bikhre Moti)(1971) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

toota haar
chhoot gaya teekaa

reh gaye nain a rote
vidhwaa ho gayi
ye suhaagan
apne piyaa ke hote

jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

raam ki leela
kaun bataaye
dekh jo kismat
tujhko dikhaaye ae
is mele ki reet yahi hai
milta jaaye ae
bichhadtaa jaaye
honi ki palak roti hai
teri aankh nahin roti
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

sooraj dooba
chaand bujhaa re
jaane kidhar gaye
toot ke tare ae ae
ab to rain basar karni hai
bas ye soch ke
chup ho jaa re
tera pyaar na sone paaye
taqdeer rahe soti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti

muskaa le tu
ankhiyaan bhar ke ae
rut aayegi aur nikhar ae ae
waapas aaya
haar galey ka
kahaan jaayenge moti bikhar ke
o bhar le maang
lagaa le tikaa
teri aur badhhe jyoti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti ee
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti
ro nahin maa jo
tere pyaar ke bikhre moti ee
jalti rahe
teri mamta ki jyoti
