Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 14
——————————————————————————

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

saanwri ghata se shabaab barse
baadal se chham chham sharaab barse

dilon ke raaz khule

Hindi movie songs cover lots of ground as far as depicting various human feelings as well as activities of Indians are concerned. But there are still a few regular activities that have been sadly underrepresented. For instance, there are hardly any songs for an activity as common as buying and selling of vegetables.

I have noticed that majority of Hindi movie characters do not seem to do anything for their living, at least as far as songs are concerned. Most songs are about feelings of happiness, sadness, love etc. There are very few songs about the activities that help people make a living.

I have discussed almost all the well known Holi songs of Hindi movies in this blog. But that does not mean that I have discussed all the holi songs of Hindi movies. There are lesser known Holi songs from Hindi movies too that are interesting songs on their own right.
