It can be seen from the table of 1990 that Lata Mangeshkar sang just 13 songs in 10 movies released in 1990.
3 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1990 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs from two movies (two songs each from “Aaj Ka Arjun” and one song from “Jeene Do”) have been covered. That leaves us with 10 songs from 8 movies of 1990 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Aag Ka Darya”(1990) is the first movie of 1990 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aag Ka Darya”(1990) was produced by R Venkatraman and directed by S V Rajendra Singh. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Rekha, Amrita Singh, Avtar Gill, Padmini Kolhapure etc in it.

“Aag Ka Darya”(1990)had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Out of the remaining five songs, one song is a Lata Shabbir Kumar duet.

Here is that song. It is penned by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is the last song that Rajinder Krishan penned for Lata Mangeshkar. As mentioned earlier, Rajinder Krishan penned 555 songs (in 157 movies) in all for Lata Mangeshkar. These songs were released between 1949 and 1990.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhana hai
ek aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga aa
jis raat chandaniya se ye chaand khafa hoga
us raat ke raahi ka socha bhi hai kya hoga
raste mein andhera hai aur door thhikaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
vo ghar bhi koi ghar hai deevaar na ho jismein
us pyaar ki kya keemat takraar na ho jismein
gussa to manaane ka bas ek bahaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai

bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye ae
bhoole se koi aansu aankhon mein agar aaye
vo dil ki amaanat hai mitti mein na mil jaaye
ulfat ka vo moti hai palkon mein chhupaaaa hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
ik aag ka dariya hai aur paar bhi jaana hai ae
rishta ye mohabbat ka donon ko nibhaana hai
donon ko nibhaana hai
donon ko nibhaana hai

Sixty-five years have passed since ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955) -JJPB for short – was released. I had seen the film in a theatre in South Mumbai either in 1955 or 1956 (this film had run for nearly 2 years in a single theatre in Mumbai). But I had no recollection of much of the film. It was only after I watched some parts of the film on the video sharing platforms over a period of time, I could connect some scenes from the film I saw in my childhood. The film still evokes interest of the cinema lovers especially of those who relish the classical dance/music.

I am now in a better position the appreciate a bold and somewhat adventurous decision Shantaram took to produce and direct JJPB with the classical dance as a theme. If not handled properly, the theme could have turned the film into a documentary rather than a feature film. It was a high budget film in a technicolour extravaganza. Shantaram’s bold and daring decision to make JJPB has be admired in the backdrop of the following handicaps he faced:

(1) The successive failures at the box office of ‘Surang’ (1953) and ‘Subah Ka Taara’ (1954), both directed by V Shantaram had already put a financial strain on his banner, Rajkamal Kala Mandir. Under the circumstances, producing a film with a classical dance theme which Shantaram had never handled in the past, that too in technicolour was fraught with a huge financial risk.

(2) There were examples in the 1940s when Sagar Movietone made ‘Kumkum The Dancer’ (1940) and Wadia Movietone made ‘Court Dancer/Raj Nartaki’ (1941) with classical dance theme. The results were not encouraging. Both these films failed at the box office putting the financial strains on the respective banners. Eventually, Sagar Movietone had to be merged with National Studio and Wadia Movietone got split between Wadia Brothers and the Wadia Studio was sold to V Shantaram.

(3) It was a high budget film but the lead actors in the film were non-stars – a handicap for the box office collections. The lead actor, Gopi Krishna was just emerging as a choreographer in a couple of films while the lead actress, Sandhya had acted in two Hindi films prior to getting the lead role of a dancer in JJPB. Moreover, she was not a trained classical dancer like Vyjayantimala who had already became a star actor-dancer and had the capacity to attract the crowd in the theatres much higher than that of Sandhya.

Despite these handicaps, going ahead with JJPB showed the confidence level of Shantaram as a director and a master craftsman of the cinema medium. Probably, Shantaram may have felt that with his technicolour film, he was in a better postion to present the classical dance theme than what Sagar Movietone and Wadia Movietone had made in 1940-41. He put Sandhya under Gopikrishna for the intensive dance training for over a year which included training during the shooting of the film as well.

Shantaram was very successful in winning over the audience who had rejected his previous two films. He made the Indian classical dances visually appealing to the audience by presenting them in a hybrid choreography, coupled with the lavish settings. The visuals in Technicolour appealed to the audience. The film became Shantaram’s most successful films on the box office front. More than the commercial success of the film, it was personal satisfaction for Shantaram as a producer-director when JJPB won the National Award and the Filmfare Award for the Best Film for 1955.

Since JJPB was all about Indian classical dances, it was apparent that the songs need to be based on the Hindustani classical music. It is said that some well-wishers of Shantaram including Vasant Desai had suggested him to entrust the music direction of the film to Naushad who had emerged as a star music director in the classical genre after the phenomenal success of his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952). But Shantaram entrusted the music direction to Vasant Desai. It is interesting to note that after ‘Dahej’ (1950), as a music director, Vasant Desai was not associated with Shantaram’s subsequent films, ‘Parchhaain’ (1952), ‘Surang’ (1953), ‘Teen Batti Chaar Raasta’ (1953) and ‘Subah Ka Taara’ (1954).

In his zeal to prove the confidence reposed on him by his mentor, Vasant Desai travelled all over India to pick up the best musicians for his music team for JJPB. In Jammu, he picked up Shiv Kumar Sharma, an upcoming Santoor player who was still in his teen at that time. From Banaras, he picked up Pandit Samta Prasad, the renowned Tabla player. Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan of Indore played sitar for Vasant Desai. In JJPB, Santoor as a musical instrument was used for the first time which later became a part of many Hindi film songs and background music.

After almost all the songs had been recorded, Vasant Desai had composed the title song in raga ‘Darbari’ for which he persuaded Ustad Amir Khan to sing. Ustad Amir Khan arrived at the recording studio for the final rehearsal and recording. At the last moment, Vasant Desai felt that he should get consent of Shantaram before the recording. So, he invited him to the recording studio to listen to the final rehearsal. Upon listening to the rehearsal, Shantaram was unhappy. He called Vasant Desai to an adjoining room and advised him to cancel the recording and suggested to either change the tune or the singer or both. Somehow Vasant Desai, on some pretext, persuaded Ustad Amir Khan to come for the recording the next day.

A nervous Vasant Desai reached home and sat down quietly. He did not know what was wrong with the composition and could not sleep that night. Early morning, it dawned to him that all the dances in the film had very fast tempo and rhythm whereas his tune was in very slow tempo and so were the aalaaps. Vasant Desai composed the same song in Raga Adana in very fast tempo and aalaaps. He rehearsed the new tune with Ustad Amir Khan in the presence of Shantaram who was pleased with the new composition. [Source of this triva on title song -”Journal of SIRC”, Annual 2012].

I am presenting here the much talked about title song, ‘jhanak jhanak paayal baaje’ rendered by Ustad Amir Khan. The words are of Hasrat Jaipuri and the music composition is of Vasant Desai.

The title song became so popular that Ustad Amir Khan used to get ‘farmaish’ in his public concerts to sing the title song. Later, Ustad Amir Khan started singing a much-elongated version of this song (nearly 9 minutes) in his concerts and the gramophone record for the same was released. Ustad Amir Khan sang live the title song of the film on the occasion of the diamond jubilee (60th week) celebration of the film in the presence of the distinguished guests at the Liberty cinema in Mumbai.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Paanch” was a movie that released towards the end of 1980. It was presented by S K Films Enterprises and was produced by Surinder Kapoor having Boney Kapoor as executive producer. It was directed by Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana known professionally as Bapu. It had a huge star cast headed by Sanjeev Kumar, Shabana Azmi, Deepti Naval, Amrish Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakravarthy, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Uday Chandra, Aruna Irani, Dulari, Gita Siddharth, Roopesh Kumar, A K Hangal and Kanhaiyalal along with a whole set of known faces that constitute the firmament of Bollywood’s supporting actors.

The movie was a remake of the 1978 Kannada film “Paduvaaralli Pandavaru” which in itself was an adaptation of the Mahabharata. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Playback singers used were also the gems of Bollywood: – Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Shailendra Singh, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Anwar and Usha Uthup.

The movie had around 8 songs and made its debut on the blog with this song/ post by Sudhirji in 2016. Its been 5 years since that post and it is high time we have another song, unfortunately I have found links to audios of all the songs. But I have seen these songs and movies eons back and so I can tell that today’s song is being lip synced by Naseer, Mithun, Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover and Uday Chandra (playback was by Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh, Anwar and Suresh Wadkar). It has these youngsters protesting the tyrannical ways of the local Zamindar (Amrish Puri) who is helped in his mission of ruling the small region in rural India by his munim (Kanhaiyalal in one of his brilliant acts as Munim). The youngsters are guided in their job by Sanjeev Kumar playing Krishna who incidentally happens to be the brother of the Zamindar. I remember that the little sounds that are off-beat in the song (Amit Kumar’s voice) were lip synced by Mithun. How I wish we had the video, my personal recommendation would be to see the movie to enjoy the full essence of the songs and see actors like Gulshan Grover and Raj Babbar in ‘hatke’ (different) avatars.

We are having this song today to wish Raj Babbar on his 69th birthday; my initial reaction when I discovered his age was “Oh! Is he that old!!!” Next was almost all the actors who played ‘paandavs’ in “Ham Paanch” are in the same age bracket and this man, along with Gulshan Grover I suppose, are the youngest. Raj Babbar, who was born in Agra- UP, made his way to movies through NSD. He was first hated for the character that he played in B R Chopra’s ‘Insaaf Ka Tarazu’ in 1980 which released around the same time as ‘Ham Paanch’. Prior to that he had appeared in ‘Kissa Kursi kaa’.

He had around 7 releases in 1980 with ‘Aap Toh Aise Na the’; Insaaf Ka Tarazu’; ‘Sau Din Saas Ke’ and ‘Ham Paanch’ still being in public memory. He has appeared in a few Punjabi movies too. He is an actor who has played all kinds of characters- positive, negative and grey too. Sometime in the ’90s he switched to playing fatherly characters which could be negative too. He was a three-time member of the Lok Sabha and two-time member of the Rajya Sabha. His children Juhi and Arya from his wife Nadira and Prateik from Smita Patil (to whom he was married till her death due to complications in child-birth) are all actors. He has also produced a few movies.

If we had the video of the songs of this movie we would have also been able to the see the fantastic-large eyed-baritone voiced Amrish Puri in what he was excellent in that period. He would have turned 89 on 22nd June had he been around.

Here is wishing Raj Babbar health and happiness and thank you for entertaining us for close to 45 years.
Editor’s note:- With this song, Laxmikant Pyarelal now have 900 songs in the blog as music directors.

We all are witnessing a once in a century pandemic that is taking a heavy toll of precious human lives. There is information overload on this topic. Much of the “information” that we are being bombarded with is not useful, and may even be harmful.

I have been observing all this. I have tried to figure out what is going on. I have tried to piece together useful information about this virus. Here I would present my take on this pandemic and how I think we should deal with the situation.

It seems that very few people actually have an idea how covid infection takes place and how it spreads. Awareness about how to protect oneself against this virus also seems low among people. The outcome of low awareness about this virus has led to disastrous consequences as we all have seen.

In a situation where most people are pressing the panic button and losing their heads, we need to take a calm look at things so that we know how to deal with this situation. I will try to keep it as simple and easy to understand as is possible.

covid 19 virus can be likened to a well trained terrorist group. It is trained and armed and indoctinated outside our borders. Then they are sent across the border to create terrorist acts within our border. Here terrorists are equivalent to covid 19 virus, whereas our country is like our body.

How do these terrorists cross the border ? If they find no security across the border, then they just sneak in unchallenged. If security is tight then they try to sneak in while their army resort to shelling across the border to divert the attention of our security forces. These terrorists then try to sneak in.

These terrorists, if they sneak in, try to create terror attacks wherever they can. If security is tight, then their attempts are foiled most of the time. If security is slack or the terrorists get local support then they are able to create serious damage.

If the terrorists are able to fan out inside the whole country then they can create terror attacks all over the country. All this happened in India with regularity not too far back. This is the most severe kind of terror attacks that India has seen.

With this background, that all Indians can readily identify with, I will try to explain how covid 19 virus acts in a similar way.

Covid 19 virus tries to gain entry into human body. It is a respiratory virus, so it can only enter our body through the external respiratory parts, viz nose and mouth, and also through eyes. So if our body is a country then nose and mouth and eyes are our border posts through which this virus tries to gain entry. When this virus was unknown, it had a free passage into the human body through nose and mouth of unsuspecting victims. When its existence became known then people began wearing masks. It is as if earlier the borders were unmanned but now they need tight security. Face masks are the border security force that that guard our entrances (nose and mouth).

If nose and mouth are guarded then still the virus may lurk in, seeking to enter when the guard is down, viz when the face mark is removed. People do remove face masks when they feel that there is no virus around. Virus lurks in the air, on the person, on clothes, exposed part of the body etc. If a person touches something (on his person or any object containing virus) and then touches his nose or mouth, this is the opening that the virus needed. It then enters the respiratory tract of the body. Now you know why there is so much stress on sanitising objects, hands etc. This also shows us what is the importance of six feet distance. If people stand far off, then the chances of virus getting transmitted from one person to another reduces considerably.

If despite all precautions, some virus enters the respiratory system, its quantity (viral load) will be low. If we are outright careless (no mask, no social distancing) then our respiratory system may receive a heavy viral load.

What happens when the virus manages to enter the respiratory system dodging the mask? It depends on the preparedness near the border.

Masks at the nose are like BSF who guard the border. If the terrorists cross the border, then they have to face the army, who are stationed near the border. In case of covid infection, the army that confronts the virus is known as body’ immunity system. It is basically white blood cells of blood. These WBC are the army soldiers to deal with the infiltrators. These WBCs are trained to tackle known viruses that they have tackled in the past. As soon as they come across a previously known virus, they are immediately able to mobilise anti bodies to tackle that virus. The antibodies can be readily and rapidly deployed. On the other hand, when a new virus, viz covid 19 virus enters about which the WBCs have no previous information, then WBCs take some time to get prepared. As WBCs gather more information about the new virus, they begin to create anti bodies to tackle the virus. But for a new virus, especially if a heavy viral load had entered the respiratory system, the WBCs response may turn out to be slow and inadequate. In the meanwhile the virus is able to do considerable damage to the respiratory system. By the time the WBCs begin to create antibodies, it may be too late.

So, If the viral load is less, then the virus is stopped there itself. If viral load is heavy and the person is not vaccinated then the virus may overwhelm the immunity system and enter further into the body, namely the lungs. Lungs are like the different states of the country. The terrorists have now spread throughout the country, and now they can wreak severe damage. The security in the interior of the country is in the hands of police, which is far too ill equipped to deal with such security threats than the army. Same is the case with the immunity system of the body, which is helpless if the virus gains access to the lungs.

Let us say that the person was already vaccinated. In that case, the immunity system was familiar with this virus. So as soon as the virus entered the respiratory system, the WBCs, being already aware about the nature of the virus, will be able to deploy antibodies immediately. So a vaccinated body is like a country with a strong well trained and well prepared army near the border. In that case most of the infiltrating virus would get neutralised there itself.

If the immunity is weak and person is not vaccinated, then the virus overwhelms the resistance at the entrance and invades the lungs. In that situation, the virus starts rapidly infecting the lungs that are unprotected and are now at their mercy. The virus damages the alveoli (tiny air sacs). The function of the alveolus is to transfer oxygen to the blood vessels. These blood vessels or capillaries carry the oxygen to the RBCs (Red blood cells). It is the RBCs that finally deliver the oxygen to all the internal organs in the body.

The virus works by damaging the wall and the lining of the alveolus and capillaries. The debris from the damage(exudate) , which is plasma protein accumulates on the alveolus wall and thickens the lining. As the walls’ thicken, the transfer of oxygen to the red blood cells is impaired. The thicker the wall gets, the more difficult it gets to transfer oxygen to the red blood cells, which causes difficulty in breathing as the body is running short of oxygen. And the lack of oxygen to the internal organs results in a deficit in the body and impairs the functioning of the organs. At this juncture, the body fights to increase oxygen intake.

And the first response of the body is to destroy the virus and prevent its replication, but if the individual has weaker immunity then the body is unable to stop the virus, and this aggravates the crisis.

As the air sacs are damaged, there is an influx of liquid which is mostly inflamed cells and protein and this fluid build-up leads to pneumonia. This further impairs the oxygen intake by the lungs and hinders the oxygen exchange. Due to the novelty of the Covid 19 strain, there is no immediate treatment to directly cure pneumonia in Covid 19 patients and they are mostly given supportive care.

There are some key indicators that the doctors use to judge the onset and severity of this severe condition called Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in infected individuals:

(1)Hypoxia – Low oxygen levels in the blood, due to damage to the alveolus

(2)Breathing difficulties and shortness of breath

(3)Chest x-rays of the lungs exhibit an opaque and glassy look against the black background

(4)Worsening symptoms over the course of time, from the day of detection of the virus

Is there no hope if the virus reach the lungs ? There is ! And it is this fact which is the most important thing to understand about this virus. The ammunition of the virus gets exhausted in nine days and so the virus gets ineffective nine days after it enters the body. If the damage to the body can be kept as low as possible though medication and other means then after nine days the recovery process begins. So the patient must be kept alive for nine days. If it can be achieved then he or she will survive. Forget low damage, even patients who suffered over 80% damage to their lungs have survived !

Virus may have become ineffective but it may have taken a heavy toll on the lungs by that time. The patient must lie prone on his/ her tummy and try to clear the contents of the lungs by coughing them out. Coughed up exudate (phlegm) would be variously coloured when the infection is severe. After a few days the colour would keep changing, from catechu colour (most severe) to black color (less severe)and finally as the infection reduces, the phlegm would become white. Finally phlegm would stop.

As the phlegm comes out, space is created in the lung and that makes breathing easier. Patients who are hospitalised and they have oxygen fitted on them mistakenly believe that they only have to keep lying down passively without doing anything. Not taking any proactive action to clear up the phlegm in their lungs is a mistake because in that case the situation will keep getting worse because the oxygen being pumped into their lungs will have no place to go in the lungs. If oxygen cannot reach the lungs then naturally they cannot be sent to RBC and from there to various parts of the body, and that would lead to serious complications.

It is seen that not just patients, even medical practitioners are often not very helpful (mainly because of their lack of experience). For instance, when a patient goes for chest x ray or HRCT, the report just states the facts, without any expert and helpful comments. A typical (and actual) HRCT report stated- “CT severity score of -36/40”

What will a normal patient do on reading the above ! He/ she will most probably die of shock if not covid because it indicates that the damage to the lung is over 80 %. Fortunately, the above patient happened to be the sister of my wife. My wife told her sister that she did not have to worry. The virus had done all it could and now the lung condition was only going to improve. To make space in the lungs, she advised her sister to do exercises that would expel the phlegm (technical term for this substance is exudate) stuck in her lungs. My wife’s sister followed the advice scrupulously. There was noticeable improvement in her condition. After a couple of weeks, her scan showed perfectly clear lung condition !

It was not the first case where my wife helped save a life. Last year, her brother too had suffered from covid and he too had delayed getting himself checked and treated, leading to a lung condition that was even worse. Even there, correct and timely advice by my wife helped save the life of her brother.

In my wife’s opinion, Rohit Sardana, the news anchor faced a similar situation as faced by her brother and sister and he could have been saved if he had received correct medical advice of the kind that she gave to her brother and sister. In Rohit Sardana’s case, he was in home isolation and he was making good recovery and was feeling better. It was on the advice of some well meaning colleague that he got his HRCT done. The HRCT showed similar severity as in case of my sister in law. But Rohit Sardana did not have the advantage of a good doctor’s advice who would tell him that the worst was over for him. Looking at the severity of his lung report, he went into shock and got himself admitted to a hospital, where he died soon thereafter.

So, to summarise all the above discussion, it can be said that the best protection against covid 19 is a properly worn mask. Do all in your ability to ensure that the virus cannot enter your respiratory system. The virus can enter your respiratory system only through nose and mouth (and in exceptional cases through eyes). Protect these entrances to your respiratory system with your life. If in rare cases virus does get in, only a light load of virus gets in if you have taken precautions, so that your present immunity system can deal with it. Do not be foolhardy to offer a free passage to the virus by going around without mask. Allowing a huge viral load to enter your respiratory system believing that you have a great immunity system is nothing but suicide. Such people will be mercilessly shown their mortality by the virus. Once the virus attacks your lung, then you will be forced to run around from pillar to post, but all these efforts will largely be fruitless. A mask costing a few rupees, and a disciplined lifestyle is more effective in preventing covid than all that desperate scramble clamouring for hospital beds, oxygen, remdesivir etc, and all that at black market prices.

And please get yourself vaccinated at the first opportunity available. India is one of the few countries that can produce its own vaccines and so India is not dependent on foreign supplies (which are difficult to come by). Most people are getting it for free in government facilities. but if some private hospitals are offering it against payment, then pay for it, avoid long waiting lists of government hospitals and get yourself vaccinated. Paying a few hundreds, or even a couple of thousands of rupees for the doses of this vaccine is fully worth it as will protect you from this deadly virus.

While discussing this deadly respiratory disease, I had decided that this article should be accompanied by a song dealing with “Saans”. The first “saans” song that I was reminded of was this song of “Aashiqui”(1990) but I thought that this song was already covered. On checking up, I heaved a sigh of relief (pun unintended) because this song was not yet covered in the blog.

Produced by Gulshan Kumar and Mukesh Bhatt and directed by Mahesh Bhatt, “Aashiqui”(1990) had Rahul Roy, Anu Agarwal, Reema Lagoo, Deepak Tijori, Avtar Gill, Tom Alter, Mushtaq Khan, Javed Khan, Sunil Rege, Homi Wadia, Anang Desai etc in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

This movie turned out to be a musical blockbuster. The story of the movie was quite run of the mill and no great shakes, but the music made the movie a super duper hit.

The song under discussion has two versions. THe movie begins with the male version sung by Kumar Sanu. This song is picturised as a hotel/ club song. Rahul Roy lip syncs the song. Sameer is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nadeem Shrawan.

The female version song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal. Its video does not seem to be available. I had watched this movie in New Delhi and I vaguely recall having seen the female version also. But its video does not seem to be available now. In any case, it was the male version which was the more popular.

The song likens the need for a “sanam” to the need for “saans”. We take “saans” for granted, but not any longer, seeing the clamour of medical oxygen in these times. One never imagined that a time may come when one would be willing to pay money to be able to breath oxygen artificially. God has given us the ability to breathe this air for free. Let us hope that we will continue to be able to avail of this gift of being able to breathe naturally.

Today (12 May 2021) is also International Nurses’ day. On this occasion, let us all hail and appreciate the great service that they and other medical personnel are rendering in combating this pandemic.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 136 # A tribute to lyricist Verma Malik & Rishi Kapoor#
——————————————-————————————————-—

Today 30th April’2021 is the first ‘Remembrance Day’ of actor Rishi Kapoor. He was born 04th September 1952 and passed away on 30th April 2020 at the age of sixty-seven only.

When I was a growing child in the seventies Rishi Kapoor was a rising star and had started his film career with the 1973 movie ‘Bobby’. I must be five years old then. And as I have mentioned in one of my earlier articles, I had not watched this movie. Maybe I have watched few songs of this movie on TV. Then there were movies like ‘Rafoo Chakkar’, ‘Badalte Rishtey’, ‘Raajaa’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, ‘Jhoothha Kahin Ka’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane’ etc, then ‘Naseeb’’ ‘Ye Waadaa Rahaa’, ‘Karz’, ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhaanaa Hai’ and others which are a part of nostalgia of my growing years. I am not going to list all of them here. But I would like to mention few of his movies which I watched as a grown-up boy, ‘Saagar’, ‘Chaandni’, ‘Bol Radha Bol’, ‘Deewaanaa’, ‘Heena’ etc which I watched during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan).

In the recent years I watched his ‘102 not out’ on TV after his death.

As I mentioned above his movies are part of my growing years and will always be remembered whenever Hindi movies of the seventies-eighties’ are discussed.

He was very active in his personal life too and he spoke his mind on many issues on social media like twitter.

He was smiling even on the day he was hospitalized as we have seen in a video in circulation in media after his hospitalization or just before the night that he left us.

He lived his life to the fullest and his smiling face can never be forgotten.

For today’s occasion I am presenting a song which is a background song from the movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’. If we see the types of roles Rishi Kapoor played on screen and his personal life, he was always a ‘Zindaa Dil’ person.

Let us have a look on the list of movies released in ‘1975’ having actor Rishi Kapoor acted in them.

S. No Name of the movie Actress Passed by Censor Board
01 Khel Khel Mein Neetu Singh 13.05.1975
02 Raajaa Sulakshana Pandit 17.11.1975
03 Rafoo Chakkar Neetu Singh 02.01.1975
04 Zindaa Dil Neetu Singh 15.10.1975

(I sincerely hope that I have not missed any movie in above list)

Today’s song is written by lyricist Verma Malik. We remember him too and pay our homage to him. His ninety-sixth birth anniversary passed on 13th April’2021.
He was born on 13th April 1925 and left this world on 15 March 2009.

Today’s wonderful song also serves as our tribute to him.

Coming back to the today’s movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’, it was directed by Sikander Khanna for ‘S.B. Films International, Bombay’.

It had Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Zahira, Pran, I.S. Johar, Roopesh Kumar, Rajesh Lahar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, C.S. Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Padma Chauhan, Rajrani, Uma Khosla, Master Shailesh, Master Rocky, Baby Fatima, Meenakshi, Goga, Dham Mota, Ghanshyam, Manohar Azad, and K.D. Shorey, Raja Duggal and Sikander Khanna in special appearance.

This was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1975.

This movie had five songs penned by Verma Malik and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

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

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi. I guess that this song appears in the movie in parts. HFGK Vol-V mentions this song as one song only. Video for all the parts of this song seems to be un-available.

In the year ‘1975’ Verma Malik wrote lyrics for the following movies.

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aandolan Jaidev
02 Apne Dushman Kalyanji-Anandji
03 Chori Mera Kaam Kalyanji-Anandji
04 Do Jhooth Shankar-Jaikishan
05 Monto Kalyanji-Anandji
06 Raftaar Sonik-Omi
07 Sanyaasi Shankar-Jaikishan
08 Zindaa Dil Laxmikant-Pyarelal
09 Zorro Kalyanji-Anandji

From the songs penned by him in the above movies, only one song made it to the final of Binaca geetmala 1975. It was a song from ‘Sanyaasi-1975’ and it was was at number thirty-two. However, the top two songs of the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ 1975 were written by Verma Malik. They were from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’.

Let us now listen to today’s song (a philosophical song) and pay our tributes to lyricist Verma Malik and actor Rishi Kapoor…

Today’s song, which I guess is played in parts in the movie, are available in audio in several versions. I have selected a version that contains all stanzas .

Hullo Atuldom

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vasisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The Kishore Kumar song has not yet been posted.

Today’s song is the surprise of the movie. I suppose this was the only song that Sridevi has sung in Hindi films. Of course, there is a song in Balu Mahendra directed “Sadma” where Sridevi’s voice was heard along with Kamal Haasan’s in the story-song ‘ek dafa ek jungle tha’ where she giggles and gives reaction to whatever Kamal was saying.

The song with this post is something which I have always wondered about. Whether it is a fantasy or flashback. I have seen this movie a number of times and I have not been able to decide. It has been shot in the picturesque Switzerland. It is one of the songs where the heroine is seen dressed environment appropriately. It also is a lesson for the lover to never meet his love without gifts.

We remember our beloved “khwaabon ki Shehzaadi” Sridevi who left us on 24th February 2018 today. She left her family, friends and countless fans shocked when the news broke over news channels in the wee hours of 25th. The general reaction was “it cannot be true”. How can a person who was so full of vitality and healthy and eagerly expecting her daughter’s first bow on the Bollywood firmament “just go!!!!” She herself just had had a release “Mom” and was seen at various award functions and TV channels. A lasting memory for me, personally, was from the TV dance reality show where she was seen shaking a leg with her contemporary Madhuri Dixit and it was a soothing sight for sore eyes. There have been posts on our blog which have her life-story, list of co-stars etc.
Thank you Sridevi for having entertained us through your life-time having started as a child-actor.

Hullo Atuldom

We are on the last date of the first month of the 21st year of the 21st century.

January happens to be a cold month in the northern hemisphere of the earth. And India is in the middle of having winter which is characterized by fog, mist, cold winds etc depending on the Latitude that one resides on. When I used to be in Mumbai, the closest I came to experiencing ‘Sardi’, ‘Thandi’ etc was in the last week of December or first week of January. That too in the morning hours, till about 8 o’clock, then the thermometer would read round about 27 and 30 degrees Celsius during the day. I don’t remember seeing fog or mist there, but I had different climatic experiences once we shifted to Bangalore. I have seen all winter related features which last from November to January end with temperatures dropping to 10 degrees etc. Now in my current station, which is in the midst of lots of greenery and away from the hustle bustle of city-life, though the temperature did not touch 10 degrees on any day, we have been experiencing thick fog, cold winds, cold floors, etc.

All this talk of winter and cold climate, in addition to sharing pictures of fog with friends and family reminded me of a whole set of songs:- ‘jab chali thandi hawa’, ‘thandi hawaa yeh chaandni suhaani’, ‘thandi hawaa kaali ghaata aa hi gayi jhoom ke’, ‘thandi hawaayen lehraake aayen’, ‘thandi thandi hawaa mein dil lalchaaye’, ‘mujhko thand lag rahi hain’ etc etc.

The songs that I have mentioned are all popular numbers from their times. But the movies of the new century are no different. They also have songs where the different characters are reacting to cold climates with lots of guts- it takes a lot of guts to shoot these songs in cold climates, with snow etc for added effect and in costumes that are of the thinnest fabric possible like chiffon, lace etc. (Possibly the only climate appropriate dressing was Saira Banu in ‘Junglee’ and some other heroines of the ’60s and Hema Malini in a few movies of the ’70s, recently I re-saw “Dost”.) For further enhancement of the scene we may even see short dresses with long boots. My sympathies with all the female actors who have done those songs and scenes. And what do the male actors wear in such songs- long coats, mufflers, gloves etc.

In the build up to this post I recalled a 23 year old song. This song was shot in the cold climes of Australia. I had mentioned this movie to fellow-atulites, on our WhatsApp group last week, when the India- Australia cricket series was on. The uniqueness about this song is the heroine is dressed in climate appropriate clothes and we have the hero trying to be MANLY and showing of his biceps etc in half-jacket and jeans. I also read the heroine reminiscing about how the actor was shivering during the shoot.

I am talking of Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol. The movie was “Soldier” which was released in 1998. It was produced by Ramesh Taurani of Tips Records and directed by the director-duo: brothers Abbas-Mustan. It had Anu Malik as music director and Sameer was the lyricist. It was the third highest grossing album of 1998 behind “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dil Se”.

This was Preity Zinta’s debut movie though she had signed “Kya Kehna” before this. “Dil Se” and “Soldier” have billed Preity Zinta as debutant; Preity had a supporting role in “Dil Se”. She was born in Shimla on 31st January. So today is her Birthday. Last I had written a post for her birthday was when she turned 40.

She has taken a sabbatical from acting a few times since 2009 for the sake of her IPL team. She has married her long-time American partner in 2016. In her career of almost 25 years, she has acted with all the top actors of the ’90s and later years. She has also acted in a movie with Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor where her character was negative and Schizophrenic. She was praised for her portrayal of the character. She also appeared alongside The Big B in an English language film that was directed by Rituparno Ghosh “The Last Lear” in 2007, this was a film-inside-a-film drama. She has also played the traditional glamorous actress in movies. She has shared screen space with top actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukherjee etc too.

Today’s song is to wish Bobby Deol too, even if belatedly for his birthday which was on 27th, he turned 52. Born as Vijay Singh Deol into the film industry as the youngest child of Dharmendra and Prakash Kaur. He first faced the camera when he was 5 or 6 year old as the baby Dharam in “Dharam Veer” (1977). His first adult role was in “Barsaat” (1995) where another star-child Twinkle Khanna made her debut. He has one more “Barsaat” (2005) in the list of his films. He has appeared in a few mutli-starrers and also shared screen space with his father and brother in a few of their home productions. The “Yamla Pagla Deewana” series was good to see due to the Deols even if the story was lame, tame or weak. It is always entertaining to see the Deols.

The journey continues … with many miles to go …

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teri bahaar laayenge sajaniyaa
Aaya hai sandesa ye sawere waali gaadi se

Padi kankari aankhon se nikal jaayegi

Padi kankari aankhon se nikal jaayegi
Ye maili chunariya meri
Badal jaayegi
Dekho mandlaaye kaise ban ki Titliyaan
Jaise main hoon phulwaa bahaar ka

Teri bahaar laayenge sajaniyaa
Aaya hai sandesa ye severe waali gaadi se

Teri dhun mein choor
Ho o o
Teri raah mein o saajan
Teri dhun mein choor
Khuli dhoop mein ithlaati
phiri door door
Mil ke sunaaungi
kaise hans hans ke
Jhelaa maine dukh intezaar ka aa
Ho o o
Din pyaar ke aayenge sajaniyaa
Teri bahaar laayenge sajaniyaa
Aaya hai sandesa ye severe waali gaadi se
Mere dildaar ka aa

Suno ae hawaa koyi mera
Bulaaye mujhe ae
Ho o
Suno ae hawaa koyi mera
Bulaaye mujhe ae
Ye rut aur ye hariyaali
na bhaaye mujhe ae
Bas rahaa ab to hamaari ankhiyan mein
Sapnaa balamwa ke dwaar ka
Ho o o o
Din pyaar ke aayenge sajaniyaa
Teri bahaar laayenge sajaniyaa
Aaya hai sandesa ye severe waali gaadi se
Mere dildaar ka aa
Aaya hai sandesa ye severe waali gaadi se
Mere dildaar ka aa

दिन प्यार के आयेंगे सजनिया
तेरी बहार लायेंगे सजनिया
आया है संदेसा ये सवेरे वाली गाडी से
मेरे दिलदार का आ
दिन प्यार के आयेंगे सजनिया
तेरी बहार लायेंगे सजनिया
आया है संदेसा ये सवेरे वाली गाडी से
मेरे दिलदार का आ

पड़ी कंकरी आँखों से निकल जायेगी
हो ओ
पड़ी कंकरी आँखों से निकल जायेगी
ये मैली चुनरिया मेरी
बदल जायेगी
देखो मंडलाए कैसे बन की तितलियाँ
जैसे मैं हूँ फुलवा बहार का
हो ओ ओ
दिन प्यार के आयेंगे सजनिया
तेरी बहार लायेंगे सजनिया
आया है संदेसा ये सवेरे वाली गाडी से
मेरे दिलदार का आ

तेरी राह में ओ साजन
तेरी धुन में चूर
हो ओ
तेरी राह में ओ साजन
तेरी धुन में चूर
खुली धूप में इठलाती फिरी दूर दूर
मिल के सुनाउंगी
कैसे हंस हंस के
झेला मैंने दुःख इंतज़ार का आ
हो ओ ओ ओ
दिन प्यार के आयेंगे सजनिया
तेरी बहार लायेंगे सजनिया
आया है संदेसा ये सवेरे वाली गाडी से
मेरे दिलदार का आ

सुनो अय हवा कोई मेरा
बुलाये मुझे ए
हो ओ
सुनो अय हवा कोई मेरा
बुलाये मुझे ए
ये रुत और ये हरियाली न भाये मुझे ए
बस रहा अब तो हमारी अंखियन में
सपना बलमवा के द्वार का
हो ओ ओ ओ
दिन प्यार के आयेंगे सजनिया
तेरी बहार लायेंगे सजनिया
आया है संदेसा ये सवेरे वाली गाडी से
मेरे दिलदार का आ
आया है संदेसा ये सवेरे वाली गाडी से
मेरे दिलदार का आ

Blog Day :

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

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

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

Blog post number Song Movie Year Remarks
3346 Balam mohe chhedo naa Daasi 1944 6 songs covered out of 11
3347 Gaaye jaa geet milan ke tu apni lagan ke Melaa 1948 YIPPEED by now
3348 Dharak dharak tere bin mera jiyaraa Singaar 1949 YIPPEED by now

One can notice that five out of 7 movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED.

“Bambai Raat Ki Baahon Mein”(1967) is one movie that made its debut ten years ago and that is the only song from that movie to appear in the blog so far.
