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’

Song-Din pyaar ke aayenge sajaniya (Sawere waali Gaadi)(1986) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Din pyaar ke aayenge sajaniyaa
Teri bahaar laayenge sajaniyaa
Aaya hai sandesa ye severe waali gaadi se
Mere dildaar ka aa
Din pyaar ke aayenge sajaniyaa
Teri bahaar laayenge sajaniyaa
Aaya hai sandesa ye sawere waali gaadi se
Mere dildaar ka aa

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

Teri raah mein o saajan
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

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.

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

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

Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

Today’s song is from the film Alakh Niranjan-1950. This film is based on a story from Nath – Puran. In India, the Nath Sampraday (Sect) is spread over the whole country. In every place it has its local name and own folk lores. Now, what is this Nath Sampraday ? Few years ago, in one of posts, i had given all detailed information about it. To refresh your memory and for the benefit of new readers, here is a short note again on Nath Sampraday.

In the Hindu Sanaatan traditions the worship of Lord Shiva is called Shaivism and the worshippers and followers of Lord Shiva are called Shaivs. Nath Sampradaay is a sub tradition within Shaivism. The followers of this tradition consider Adinath or Lord Shiva as their first Lord. The word Nath implies Master. In this tradition, there is a lineage of nine Gurus or Teachers. The form of sadhna practiced by the followers of this tradition is called Hath Yog (हठ योग).

The first Guru in this lineage is Matsyendra Nath, who is better known as Machhindra Nath. The traditional history recounts that Matsyendra was born under an inauspicious star. This warranted his parents to throw the baby into the ocean. In the ocean the baby was swallowed by a large fish, and he lived and grew up inside the belly of the fish, for many years. The fish swam to the bottom of the ocean where Lord Shiva was imparting the secrets of yoga to Mata Parvati. Matsyendra overheard this discourse and learnt the secrets of yoga. He began to practice this yog sadhana inside the fish’s belly. After twelve years he finally emerged as an enlightened Siddha.

There is a list of Nine Nath Gurus, who are called Navnath. The first Nath Guru is Machhindra. The complete list is as follows

Machhindranath
Gorakhnath
Jalandhar Nath
Kanif Nath (Kanhoba)
Gahini Nath
Raja Bhartrihari Nath (Bharthari)
Revan Sidha Nath
Charpati Nath
Naag Nath

The stories surrounding every Nath Guru, especially the earlier ones, are very exciting, thrilling and entertaining. One must read them from the original Nath Puraan or NavNath Pothi. I have read all of them. These stories are in no way less than any Arabian Night stories. Due to their entertainment value, several films in several languages have been made on the early Gurus like Machhindranath and Gorakhnath.

Films on Machhindranath were made as ‘Maaya Machhindra’ in Hindi, in 1932, 1951, 1960 and 1975. Films on Gorakhnath as ‘Alakh Niranjan’, were made in 1940, 1950 and 1975. Films on Bharthari were made in 1932 and 1944. Films on other Naths were made as ‘Raja Gopichand’ in 1933, 1938 and 1950. Same way films on Naths in Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati and other languages were also made.

Film Alakh Niranjan-50 is a story from Bengal, where Raja Gopichand was ruling. Alakh Niranjan is the call, which a Gosavi gives, when he visits a house for his daily Bhiksha. These Gosavis do not accept cooked food. They take only the raw material, as they are supposed to cook and eat. I remember, when I was a kid and used to visit my Nanihal ( a small village in Marathwada, Maharashtra), few Gosavis used to visit the house and call out loudly “Alakh Niranjan”.It was my duty to give them the wheat or Jowar flour, which they would smilingly store in their multi-pocketed Zolis. Nowadays, even in the remotest villages, one cant find these Gosavis.

The film was directed by a veteran of the silent films – Dada Gunjal. The younger generation is unlikely to have even heard about him, because he ended his career in 1959 only. Director Vishnupant Mathaji Gunjal or simply Dada Gunjal, was born in Kolhapur on 25-1- 1904. He was not interested in education, so after passing his Matriculation, he joined the film industry. Initially he worked in various capacities, but concentrated on Directing the films. He established his own Gunjal Production company at Bombay and directed his first silent film Collegian in 1929. Soon ,realising that producing films was not his cake, he shifted to Directing films for Vishwesh film company, Bombay. Making silent films like Bharati, The Bandit, Vijeta, Bewafa qatil, khabardar, Bhedi khanjar etc.

When Talkie films started, he directed Bhakta ke Bhagwan and Ambarish in 1934. Dada Gunjal directed in all 37 films ( 30 Talkie and 7 Silent). Some of his films were, Bhakta dhruv, Panihari,Aparadhi, Ekadashi, Mata, Mamta, Tulsi, Bhakta ke Bhagwan, Noorjehan, Baraat, Kirti, Pati patni, Alakh Niranjan, Mother India -1938 etc. His last film was Ek Armaan mera-59. Dada Gunjal died on 16-11- 1968.

The music director of this film was Premnath….a case of ‘ Same Name Confusion’ . He is often confused with actor Premnath and his films are credited to the actor’s filmography.

PREMNATH the Music Director was born on 5-7-1918 in Gujranwala,Punjab. He learnt music from experts in Amritsar,Multan and Lahore.He acted in films like Shahr-e-khamoshi and also sang in Sohni Mahiwal-1938.

After marriage,he moved to Bombay. His first film as a Music Director was Rangbhoomi-1946. In this film ,a novice Mohd. Rafi sang many songs for him. His other films were Dharti-47,Chandrahas-47,Sagar’s Pehla pyar-47. He then produced a film ” Chand sitare”-48 under the banner of Ravindra Art productions. Mukesh,Lata and Geeta Roy sang in it. In the film ‘Alakh Niranjan’-50,he used Mohd. Faruqi, Sulochana kadam and Rajkumari.

Premnath gave music to many films of Super pictures of Aspy Irani like Bade Bhaiya-51 and Maya Machhindra-51, in which Surendra, Geeta,Rafi and Shamshad sang. His another film ‘Qatil kaun’ in late 50s was not released. For this film, Rafi, Asha, Manna Dey, Mubarak Begum and Shamshad had given songs.

His films diminished. Sati Vaishalini-59,Main hoon jaadugar-65 and Tarzan in Fairyland-68 were his last films.
After he stopped work as MD,he devoted his time for the welfare of Cine Artists as a trade union leader. As a Secretary,he served the music Directors Assn. for 30 years.

He died on 27-4-1993 at the age of 75 years.

The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Durga Khote, Ulhas, Sapru etc etc. There were 10 songs in the film. Today’s song is the third song here. It is sung by singer Mohammed Faruqi. In fact today’s song is the last song that he sang to end his singing career.

Mohammed Hussain Farooqi,the singer may not be known to many of our readers.

Mohd.Farooqi was born on 17-8-1915 at jhunjhunu in Rajasthan. He was keen on Music from childhood,but his religious Haji father was against it,as he wanted him to become a Teacher.

In 1945,Farooqi came to Bombay with a letter for Khemchand Prakash(originally from Rajasthan).He stayed in old khar with a friend.After an year KP called him to his house.When Farooqi went there,K.L.Saigal was also sitting there.KP asked him to sing a song.He sang Saigal’s ‘So ja rajkumari so ja’.Saigal was impressed and he was employed by Ranjeet Movietone on a princely monthly salary of 200 rupees.
He got his first break with ‘Chcheen lo Azaadi-1947.His song ‘kamzoronki nahi hai duniya’ was popular with freedom fighters.
He sang 15 songs in 12 movies, all with Bulo.C Rani and Hansraj Behl only. His voice and style became very popular,but he had to return to Rajasthan to look after ailing father and his huge property there. He never came back after 1950 and died on 8-2-1990 peacefully.

The story of the film shows how Raja Gopichand changes his mindset about the Nath Sampraday, to which his mother also belongs, how he renounces his Throne and how he joins as a Gosavi of the Nath Sampradaya.

Aadmi ki talaash
———————————–

abhi mara nahin zindaa hai aadmi shaayad
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
badan ki andhi guphaa mein chhupa hua hogaa
badha ke haathh
har ek raushni ko gul kar do
hawaayen tez hain jhande lapet kar rakh do
jo ho sake to unn aankhon pe pattiyan kas do
na koyi paaon ki aahat
na saanson ki awaaz
daraa huaa hai woh
kuchh aur bhi na dar jaaye
badan ki andhhi guphaa se na kuchh kar jaaye
yahin kahin use dhoondho
wo aaj sadiyon baad
udaas udaas hai
khaamosh hai
akelaa hai
na jaane kab koyi pasli phadak utthe us ki
yahin kahin use dhoondho yahin kahin hogaa
barh anaho to use phir libaas pehnaa do
andheri aankhon mein sooraj ki aag dehkaa do
bahut badi hai yeh basti kahin bhi dafnaa do
abhi maraa nahin
zinda hai aadmi shaayad

Duniya jise kehte hainjaadu kaa Khilona hai
Mil jaaye to mitti hai kho jaaye to sona hai

Nida Fazli , full name Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli (12 October 1938 to 8 February 2016) is referring to the mesmerising charm of all things worldly and the fickle mindedness of the self, which keeps hankering after the things not gained, which may or may not be within reach.

The name ‘Nida’ means “to call”. In easy urdu /hindi it would mean “pukaar”. I had considered this name for my daughter. But I was dissuaded from this name, due to the meaning being so ambiguous. Because a call could be happy and good as the “Azaan”, or it could also be a call for attention is bad times or when one is in difficulty or desperation i.e. pukaar.

Here a song from the 1981 film “Aahistaa aahistaa” as part of for ‘dheere dheere songs’ series, written by Nida Fazli. This is a melodious composition by Khayyam. I am including ‘aahistaa aahistaa” in this series as it essentially means the same as ‘dheere dheere”.

Three songs from this movie have been covered in the blog so far :-

Song Date posted
Kabhi kisi ko muqqammal jahaan nahin miltaa 31 july 2010
Maana teri nazar mein 9 July 2012
Jab koi khwaab chamakta hai haqeeqat ban ke 31 july 2020

Padmini Kolhapure and Kunal Kapoor are singing this song on screen. This was a complicated story, I think based on a novel, with Shammi Kapoor and Nanda being the older generation and host of other actors in the cast.

Here is a duet by Asha Bhonsle and Anwar, as a tribute to Poet Nida Fazli on his birth anniversary.

10/10/2020 – 66th birthday of Rekha
——————————————————-

Today it is the birthday of Rekha, full name Bhanurekha Ganeshan. Some do refer to her as indian “Greta Garbo” for being elusive. However in this era of snooping social media and swooping television media, if someone of her status and lifetime experiences, wants to be a recluse, thumbs up to her. In her time she has been called “Jane Fonda” of India as well for her efforts to resurrect herself as the style icon of the industry. She is remembered for her many memorable characters enacted on the screen.

Back in the 80’s, we the impressionable teenagers, used to hang on to her photos and interviews in magazines. The new generation hasn’t heard of magazines, and google will probably say ‘bullets’, the ones needed to put in the guns, so they can fire. I know about my children, they haven’t experienced the passion and craze for magazines like we did, be it film, sports, politics or finance. I can report that I have spent my hard earned money on all the categories, fortnightly, monthly and weekly.

Yes, back to Rekha and magazine covers. I recall her on one such cover holding the black lady in her hand. Now that I checked, she has 4 filmfare awards of best actress for Khoobsurat & Khoon Bhari Maang, supporting actress in Khilaadiyon ke Khilaadi and last Life time achievement award in 2003. The “K” factor seems to have worked well for her. She used to appear in all the Filmfare award functions as the style icon, often wearing the hyderabadi “Khada dupatta” in its different avatars.

This is the Wikipedia pageWikipedia page on Rekha for more information about her. As per imdb site she has worked in 190 films between 1966 & 2018, having started as a child artist.

The song I have chosen to post today is ‘Raaste pyar ke” 1982, where she was a part of a love triangle with Shabana Azmi and Jeetendra. The gist of the story is Shabana and Rekha are best friends and they both fall in love with Jeetendra. Rekha decides to sacrifice her love for her friend, but then Shabana also finds out about the sacrificial intentions of Rekha and takes measures so that she falls sick and dies in the end, I am not sure. The measure is not a suicide attempt, but eating a lot of ‘green challis”. Jeetenda has not much say in these proceedings.

One song from the film is already posted.

The song under discussion is a nice solo by Lata Mangeshkar, also the title song. The team of Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi do a job in this situational song.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 103 # In Remembrance – Hasrat Jaipuri & Mahendra Kapoor #
——————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from a debutant movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’. I was longing to introduce this movie on the blog since long but was not able to locate its songs and they seem difficult to find. Now they are available uploaded since last year i.e. 2019. Thanks to the uploader.

‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Bhagyashri Productions, Bombay’. It was a ‘social movie’. It had Som Dutt, Komal, Kanhaiyalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Chaman Puri, Jayshree T., Renu, Sundar, Dhanraj Pahalwan, Rajnath, Bedi Sindhara, Lakshami Arya, Rajan Haksar, Uma Dutt, Y.N. Kapoor, Gopi Tak, Honey Irani, Master Ratan, Mehrunnisaa, Durga Khote and others.

This movie had six songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Sonik-Omi. Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, and Komal had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 09.11.1971.

17th September 2020 was the twenty-first Remembrance anniversary of Poet lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri (15.04.1922-17.09.1999). I was looking for a debutant movie then which has lyrics penned by him. However, I could not send my write-up then. Today we are going to introduce this movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein’ which have all songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri on the blog.

Today 27th September 2020 is the twelfth Remembrance anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor (09.01.1934-27.09.2008).

‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ has Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in five songs i.e. in all songs except except one song of the movie. He has sung two solo, two duets and one song having voice of three singers.

As a tribute to Hasrat Jaipuri and Mahendra Kapoor today we listen to this song from the movie ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ composed by Sonik-Omi.

Only audio of this song is available and I hope it is full song. Also, I think this movie must have been an obscure movie of its and its songs were forgotten easily.

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

Let us now enjoy this song.

(As mentioned above with this song ‘Dharti Ki God Mein-1971’ makes its debut on the blog today. (Only ‘one’ movie from alphabet ‘D’ from 1917 remains to be launched now to cover launching of all ‘D’ movies of ‘1971’ on the blog 🙂 )

Blog Day:

23 rd September was Tanuja’s 77th Birthday and 25th September, 2020 is the 81st birth Anniversary of Feroze Khan. Incidentally, these two have acted opposite each other in at least one film, i.e. Ek Paheli (1971). These are three songs already posted in the blog from this film :

Aansoo ki ek boond hoon main
kaahe karta hai tu itna shor…tera mera ik rasta
Mera tumhaaera saath to sadiyon ka saath hai

I have seen a few songs yesterday while deciding which one to post, they are mostly in the same genre of songs where the heroine Tanuja is singing in some ruined fort like locality with a cemetery inside the ruins. I found one more song of similar setting, where the face of lady singing the song is not shown, so I could not be sure that it is Tanuja. In the song that I have selected, the smiling Tanuja is very much visible and in her customary stylish self with high heels and a small handbag dangling from one hand. The formal attire with the party dress also is not suitable for the location where she is singing the song and leading a curious Feroze khan inside the cavernous ruins of the fort, in broad daylight. She is looking like no “bhoot’, so no bhoot or rooh in this song. SumanKalyanpure is the singer of this song composed by UshaKhanna. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist.

I can find a lot of similarities between these two actors of yesteryears. Both were stylish and good looking. While Tanuja came from a film family and must have been surrounded by the family connections in the film industry, Feroz Khan was an outsider. They both had siblings in the film industry, but I think Tanuja’s sister Nutan was estranged from her family. From the filmography it is seen that most of Feroze Khan’s films are with Mumtaz. They must have a good personal equation also, much like common people do, which results in their children marrying each other. I have read somewhere these two, Mumtaz and Feroz Khan became great friends during their struggling days and Amitabh Bachchan was also a part of this friendly circle, also a struggler.

There are a lot of bad and worst things being said, heard, written and repeated about the film industry and its so called ‘movers and shakers’, in recent times. It is a known fact that all that glitters is not gold. There are always dark and murkier things below the surface. And those who choose to be part of it are going in the murky waters with their eyes open. There are hardly any secrets in this world anymore, let alone the film industry. We as outsiders can only be this much detached and away from the ugliness, and try to maintain the façade of art and culture, and hide our knowledge and apprehension behind beautiful music, or what else we find good and appreciable.

In the 50’s and 60’s decades, there were people going in the industry to make a living or decent living. Some were maybe so impoverished that, there was hardly a choice to make, between flesh trade or do hard labour in the film studio as extra artist. And there are always ambitious people ready to give all and compromise all for either easy money or name and fame, or to be rid of financial ruin caused by their family members. Too much money or too little, it is a factor. Nepotism exists here too as it does everywhere else, in any form.

This is what MeenaKumari means when she says :

Aabl apaa koyi iss dasht mein aaya hogaa
Warna aandhi mein diya kisne jalaaya hogaa

Or when she says this :

Jalti bujhti si roshni ke pare
Simta simta sa ek makaan tanhaa

This was an insider view, saying things through poetry, what cannot be said for fear of losing its charm, glitter and shine.

The two actors Feroze Khan and Tanuja have spent their lives in the industry, been right in the thick of things. We can certainly say a few good things about these two, that they were talented and their successes were due to their talent and hard work.


Song-Main ek paheli hoon barson se akeli hoon (Ek Paheli)(1971) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

Main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
mujhe jaan’ne walaaa koyi nahin
pehchanne waalaa koyi nahin
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

mere paas aa
mere meharbaan
na de door hi se
sadaa mujhe ae
main hoon ik charaagh
bujhaa huaa
tu jalaa sakey to
jalaa mujhe
tu jalaa sakey to
jalaa mujhe
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

meri kab se hai
yahi aarzoo
ke mujhe galey se
lagaaye tu
tere dil ka dard
mitaaun main
mere dil ki pyaas
bujhaaye tu
mere dil ki pyaas
bujhaaye tu
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon

tujhe kya khabar
ke tere liye
main na jaane kab se
udaas hoon
meraa pyaar dekh ke
har ghadi
tere saathh hoon
tere paas hoon
tere saathh hoon
tere paas hoon
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
mujhe jaan’ne waalaa koyi nahin
pehchaan’ne waalaa koyi nahin
main ek paheli hoon
barson se akeli hoon
