Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 44
——————————————————————————————

Seven songs were posted ten years ago. The blog was in its childhood – “Bachpan Ke Din Bhi Kya Din The” 🙂  🙂 .

Only one of these seven was a debut song. The list given below has an interesting observation. All films that made an appearance that day, have since been yippeee’d. Except just the one that made its debut.

Ye Duniya Hai Yahaan Dil Ka Lagaana Kisko Aata Hai Shair 1949 2nd  Yippeee’d
Aaj Gaawat Man Mero Baiju Baawra 1952 6th  Yippeee’d
Ae Kaash Chalte Mil Ke Manzil 1960 3rd  Yippeee’d
Ek Baat Kahoon Wallah Ye Husn Subhan Allah Shrimaan Satyawaadi 1960 2nd  Yippeee’d
Dukh Aur Sukh Ke Raaste Bane Hain Sabke Waaste Hum Dono 1961 5th  Yippeee’d
Aap Jabse Kareeb Aaye Hain Noorjehaan 1967 Deb 3 of 8
Zindagi Khwaab Hai Jaagte Raho 1956 2nd  Yippeee’d

The film is ‘Noorjehaan’ from 1967. Containing eight very wonderful melodies, it is surprising that only three of them have as yet appeared here. With compositions created by the mind of Roshan, there still are very wonderful numbers waiting in the wings for their turn.

I bring on the 4th song of this film today. An all female duet which is decidedly a twin dance song on the screen, is such a wonderful presentation in the voices of Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. The words are from the pen of Shakeel Sb.

Although the film is available, the video of this song is not yet available online. The interesting thing is that this audio only version which is available from Sa Re Ga Ma, is most likely the long version of the song from the sound track. It has three antaraas. As I checked the 78 rpm version of this song, sure enough, it has only two antaraas. The middle antaraa, as listed in the lyrics below, is not available in the 78 rpm recording.

The act of rebellion is the famous motif of the saga of Salim / Jehangir. That the crown and the throne was less important, in the face of the matters of heart, with this heir to the throne of Delhi. A school of historians who have studied the Mughal dynasty, have an opinion – that the persona of Anarkali and that of Noorjehan, that we have been introduced through the pages of history, were probably the same person. The thought here is that eventually Akbar had to give in to the wishes of his only son and Anarkali, the court dancer, became the queen of the Mughal empire. Although, Akbar had his consolation by ensuring that the chronicles of that period, being documented by the then current historians and writers, would write the story as he demanded. Is it speculation? Or is it the truth? Maybe one will never know for certain.

Song – Aa Gaya Lab Pe Afsaana-e-Aashiqi  (Noorjehaan) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Roshan
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

aa gaya lab pe afsaana e aashiqui
ab kisi bhi fasaane ki parwaah nahin

bandagi kar rahe hain mohabbat ki hum
ye nahin jaante kya hai dair o haram
ye nahin jaante kya hai dair o haram
bandagi kar rahe hain mohabbat ki hum
ye nahin jaante kya hai dair o haram
jhuk gayi hai. . .

ab kahin sar jhukaane ki parwaah nahin
aa gaya lab pe afsaana e aashiqui
ab kisi bhi fasaane ki parwaah nahin

Blog Day :

4053 Post No. : 15183

22nd August (yesterday) was the remembrance day of the exceptional, yet unsung music director – Ram Prasad Sharma. He had passed away this day in 1995. May be not easily identifiable by himself, he is probably known more through his sons. His four sons have all been well known musicians and instrumentalists, and all have been connected with the film industry. Two of them are also famous as music directors – Pyaarelal ji, of the Laxmikant Pyaarelal duo, and Ganesh.

Ram Prasad’s biographical and filmographic details have been presented earlier on this blog, in the article on the song “Antul Habi Ke Dekho Kabhi” from the film ‘Magic Carpet’, released in 1964. There is also a detailed article by our dear Arun ji, posted here on the blog – Anmol Fankaar.

Today’s song is also from the same film – ‘Magic Carpet’. The film is directed by Babubhai Mistry, under the banner of Unique Pictures, Bombay. This is stunt cum fantasy film – a typical ‘jaadugar sainyyaan’ type film. The cast of actors includes Chitra, Azaad, Bhagwan, BM Vyas, Bela Bose, Dalpat, Kesri, Bimla Kashmiri, and a host of junior artists, listed as Aroon, Maqbool, Radhe Shyam, Arvind Kumar, Mehroo Bai, Bakshi, Master Kisore, Kalla, Rafiq, Sandow, Dawood, Amir, Musa, Julian, Khalil, Rehman, Salim, Zippy and Nagina.

The film has five songs which are penned by four songwriters – Farooque Kaiser, Shakeel Nomaani, Arsh Farooque and Jia Dehalvi. This song is written by Jia Dehalvi – as the pseudonym suggests, he is from Delhi. 🙂 Music is by Ram Prasad Sharma. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

On screen, the song is performed as a twin dance, with both dancers lip syncing the playback from Asha. The dancers are Chitra and Bela Bose. Now, I am not completely certain, and am open for being corrected. Some familiarity with the performers and the absence of any other name that sounds like a dancer, in the list of actors given above. I request other more knowledgeable friends in the group to please correct or confirm. 🙂

There are two other gentlemen in the frame. I request for help to identify them, as I do not yet have access to software that will help to remove the beards from the faces of men in video clips. 😀 😀 Given the names in the list of actors, I believe one of them could be Dalpat. Please help to identify them.

A lilting dance song this one. Listening to this song, I can hear the sources of inspiration for the torrent of music that flowed from the works of L-P. This, and many others like this from B and C grade films of 1950s and 1960s, form a string of very pleasing memories from the radio listening days. I am sure you will enjoy this.

Song – O Sainyyaan Be-Peer Koi Teer Na Chalaana  (Magic Carpet) (1964) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Jia Dehlavi, MD – Ram Prasad

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 9
————————————————

Great idea this, the ten year challenge series. Works as a great reminder across the years and makes us pay attention to films and songs that have been waiting in the wings for a long time.

Today, I pick that lovely little film from 1965 – ‘Akashdeep’. It had made its debut on our blog ten years ago today – 26th Feb, 2009. Dharmendra was a very fresh face, just about four or five years into his career that year, and Nanda was somewhat senior. Ashok Kumar plays the role of a right thinking but apparently an abrasive mill owner and businessman, with Nimmi in the role of his mute wife. Mehmood plays the younger brother of Ashok Kumar, with Shobha Khote as his wife. Mehmood and his family lives separately from his brother, in relative poverty – he runs a small tea shop. The story of the film is woven around a village community where the mill is major work provider – the story of the workers in conflict with the wealthy capitalists. The film has a socialist message. Ashok Kumar’s intentions are always good, but he is impatient with the people who do not understand his viewpoint. After the conflict, the story comes to a happy ending with Ashok Kumar transforming the factory into a co-operative, giving equal shares to all the workers.

The film has some really memorable songs penned by Majrooh Sb and tuned to wonderful melodies by Chitragupt. We have “Dil Ka Diya Jalaa Ke Gaya”, an enchanting Lata solo played on the gramophone player in the film – the song that introduces Nimmi to Ashok Kumar; then the ecstatic rendition by Rafi Sb – “. . . Mujhe Aap Kis Liye Mil Gaye”, presented on screen by Dharmendra in a soft late evening setting, by the waters of a lake; the lovely duet by Lata and Mahendra Kapoor – “Suniye Jaana. . .” – on screen Dharmendra and Nanda; and the lilting springy Lata solo again – “Miley To Phir Jhuke Nahin. . .” performed by Nanda next to the seashore, late evening setting once again. I list these four songs, for these are the most popular songs of this film and all of them are already showcased here on our blog.

Besides these, there are four more songs in this film. Two of the songs are of the social messaging type, one is a parody song performed as a stage presentation, and the fourth pending song is an all female duet sung by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. As I checked out the online availability, I am surprised to note that this Asha-Usha duet song is not available anywhere. I was curious, for I could not recall having heard this song before. So, pulling it out of my collection, as I played it, I am completely bowled over by the melody construct that Chitragupt has weaved around the words of Mahrooh, and presented it as a twin dance song. Absolutely fresh and lovely presentation, even after more than sixty years.

‘Akashdeep’ is directed by Phani Majumdar – and coincidentally, we have a write up on this talented director published just yesterday by Sadanand ji, with the song “Taaron Se Akhiyaan Milaaun Main”.

So, presenting the fifth song of this film. A very less heard melody, which I am sure you will fancy immediately. Cheers and happy listening.

Missing Films of 1960s – 83
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A delectable discovery, this wonderful duet of Asha ji and Usha ji. And one more film of the 1960s gets added to our blog today.

‘Tarzan 303’ – I was not even aware of this film before I started working on this series. And even now, no information is available, except what is there in the Geet Kosh. Indian film producers have a set fascination for the theme of Tarzan. From 1931 to 1980, no less than 15 films have been produced which contain ‘Tarzan’ in their title. And there probably are some more after 1980 also.

The film being introduced today is a production from the banner of Bhanu Films, Bombay and is directed by Chandrakant. There are four songs listed for this film. All songs are from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music composition is by Harish Dhawan. No information about this music director is forthcoming. As per Geet Kosh, this seems to be the only film for which he has composed the music. I do not know if he is in any way connected with Prem Dhawan. I would request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this unknown music director, as well as about this film.

The cast of actors is listed as Master Chandgiram, Shabnam, K N Singh, Tiwari, Azad, Renu, Johnny Whisky, Bhupendra, Lata Arora, Ravi Singh, Dilip Dutt, Rani Malini, Rajni, Uttam Kumar, V K Verma, Hameed, Khalid, Ramlal Pehalwan, Sato Pehalwan, Rambabu Pehalwan, R Chandra, Ridku, Rizvi, Ramchandra, and Shakeela Bano Bhopali. Quite a standard fare, as expected for a stunt film in the 1960s. Master Chandgi Ram is the name that stands out as a new name. I have presented his brief biosketch in my earlier post from this series itself, when I presented the song “Neele Ambar Se Tumhaare Liye Aayi” of the film ‘Veer Gatotkach’ (1970). Apparently he has appeared only in three films on record, the third one being ‘Maha Shivratri’ from 1972.

The song presented today is a delightful duet sung by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. Quite a quick paced rendition for what seems to be a twin dance song on the screen. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Haaye Haaye Tera Jawaab Kahaan  (Tarzan 303) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Harish Dhawan
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera

neend aati nahin hai sanam
hamen to ab raaton mein
neend aati nahin hai sanam
hamen to ab raaton mein
baithe rehte hain hum raat bhar
ye dil liye haathon mein
kabhi to dekho idhar
meri jaan bas ik nazar
chaahne waale tere hain hum dilruba
haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera

sab pe aate jawaani ki din
magar yun na aate hain
sab pe aate jawaani ki din
magar yun na aate hain
dekh le tujhko jo ek jhalak
nazar na hataate hain
jawaani chadhti rahe
khumaari badhti rahe
deten hain ye duaaen tujhe hum sada
haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera

Missing Films of 1960s – 82
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Our journey of missing 1960s films continues. Coming to the next film – this one is ‘Veer Amar Singh Rathaur’ from 1970.

This film is from the banner of Sudarshan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Radhakant. The cast of actors listed for this film are Dev Kumar, Kumkum, Zeb Rehman, Tiwari, Jeevan, Kamal Kapoor, Johnny Whisky, and Jeevankala amongst others.

A film by this title was also made in 1957 – a slight variation in name – it was titled ‘Amar Singh Rathaur’. The earlier film had Jairaj and Nirupa Roy in lead roles. And it had 12 songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by Sanmukh Babu Upadhyay. The 1970 reprisal has Dev Kumar and Kum Kum in lead roles. And this version has 14 songs all written and composed by Prem Dhawan.

There is possibly another film by this name, released later than 1980, but I am not very certain.

Prem Dhawan, who is known much better as a songwriter, has also worked as a music director for about 15 to 18 films during is career, about 5 of which are Punjabi films. He has mostly worked as a composer for films for which he also has written the songs. In one film, he has composed songs written by Kavi Pradeep (for ‘Kisaan Aur Bhagwa’, 1974) and for one more film, he has composed songs written by Ali Sardar Jafri (for ‘Naxalites’, 1980).

Only the audio of this song is available, but from listening to it, one can surmise that this song is a twin dance song. The singing voices in this all female duet are of Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. I request other readers and friends who may have seen this film, to please add more information about this song, and the film.

A very peppy dance song, that talks about the ill effects of falling in love, and also of the sweet emotions. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Akhiyan Mila Ke Akhiyan  (Veer Amar Singh Rathaur) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

ho akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
ho main to baaz aai
ho main to pachhtaai
ke jaagun ab saari saari ratiyaan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

jab se dekha hai dharti ka chaand
tab se dekha na chanda gagan ka
udd gai ab to aankhon ki neend
hosh kis ko hai ab tan badan ka
ke dagar bhool chali
haaye
ke nagar bhool chali

haaye
bhooli jaati hain bachpan ki sakhiyaan

haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

haaye ye meethi meethi jalan
pyaar kehta hai jis ko zamaana
ab to jitna tadapta hai dil
dard lagta hai utna suhaana
unhin ki baat sochun
haaye
yahi din raat sochun

haaye
kaise un se kahun dil ki batiyaan

haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

koi leta hai jab unka naam
mann hi mann jhoom leti hoon main to
jaane kyon dekh ke aainaa
apna munh choom leti hoon main to
ke khud hi likhti rahoon
haaye
ke khud hi padhti rahoon
oy
jaane kitni hi pyaar bhari patiyaan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

o main to baaz aai
o main to pachhtaai
ke jaagun ab saari saari ratiyaan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

हो अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हो मैं तो बाज़ आई
हो मैं तो पछताई
के जागूँ अब सारी सारी रतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

जब से देखा है धरती का चाँद
तब से देखा ना चंदा गगन का
उड़ गई अब तो आँखों की नींद
होश किसको है तन बदन का
के डगर भूल चली
हाए
के नगर भूल चली
हाए
भूली जाती हूँ बचपन की सखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

हाए ये मीठी मीठी जलन
प्यार कहता है जिसको ज़माना
अब तो जितना तड़पता है दिल
दर्द लगता है उतना सुहाना
उन्हीं की बात सोचूँ
हाए
यही दिन रात सोचूँ
हाए
कैसे उनसे कहूँ दिल की बतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

कोई लेता है जब उनका नाम
मन ही मन झूम लेती हूँ मैं तो
जाने क्यों देख के आईना
अपना मुंह चूम लेती हूँ मैं तो
के खुद ही लिखती रहूँ
हाए
के खुद ही पढ़ती रहूँ
ओय
जाने कितनी ही प्यार भरी पतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

ओ मैं तो बाज़ आई
ओ मैं तो पछताई
के जागूँ अब सारी सारी रतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

Missing Films of 1960s – 80
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aha, good going at 80. If I am lucky, I may get to a century with this series. 🙂

Today’s film is just about at the bottom of the decade. The film name is ‘Ye Khoon Rang Laayega’ from 1970. Considering the alphabetic listing scheme by year, you will find this film at the second last position in GK volume no. 4 (of the regular set of Hindi films of that decade).

Once again, a song that has been sitting in my collection for oh so long. Picked it up today and listened to it for the first time. Music director – Robin Bannerji. And I just do not seem to be getting enough listen of this song. What a wonderful twin dance duet – voices are Usha Mangeshkar and Krishna Kalle. K Kalle’s voice seems to be somewhat subdued in the company of the razor sharp voice of Usha M. But together, they are a magic weaved by the music director. Listening to such songs, one always is left with a craving – wish Robin Bannerji had done more films in his career. But that was not to be. Most of the decade of the 1970s and part of 1980s, was lost in battling ill health, compounded by two unfortunate accidents. He passed away on 27th July, 1986.

The film is from the banner of Sanjay Films, Bombay and is directed by Roshan Bhardwaj. The six listed songs are penned by two lyricists – Anjaan and Yogesh – honor shared equally. This song is written by Yogesh. The star cast of the film is interesting – Helen, Randhawa, Mukri, SK Prem, Uma Dutt, Gul Hamid, Shaam Kumar, Saudagar Singh, Dhanraj, Ridku, Ratnamala, Lalita Desai, Sushma, Poonam Kapoor, Ishwar Bhai, Khurshid Khan, Kesari, Madhumati, Rani, and Lakshmichaya amongst others.

Let’s listen to this wonderfully crafted all female duet. And let’s continue to wonder – about these lesser known but highly talented artists.

Song – Qayaamat Hai Teri Nigaahon Ka Jaadu  (Ye Khoon Rang Laayega) (1970) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Robin Bannerji
Usha Mangeshkar + Krishna Kalle

Lyrics

qayaamat hai teri nigaahon ka jaadu..oo..oo

Missing Films of 1960s – 75
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Thief Of Baghdad’ – a movie that has now became a legend, came to the silver screen almost a hundred years ago, in an era when even Hollywood was still in the silent zone. This archetypal tale adapted from the ‘Tales of a Thousand Nights’ (what we know better as ‘Arabian Nights’), was made into a film by Douglas Fairbanks who wrote the story for the film, produced it and played the lead role. Over the decades, this film has become a seminal benchmark of what fantasy cinema should be. The lavish production was much ahead of its time of the 1920s. In that era, the production cost of the film came to a whopping 1.1 million USD. One has to see to believe the scale of production – towering palaces, fabulous interiors, special effects to blow your mind and a cast of thousands much before Cecil B DeMille put his hand to the camera. This film is available in public domain, and it is a veritable treat to watch.

Over the decades, the film has been remade in Hollywood and also in other parts of the world, sustaining and perpetuating the fantasy of this adorable tale of a petty, brazen, street smart thief whose philosophy in life is “. . . what I like, I take.” His life changes when he sees the sleeping princess and falls in love with her. The plot of the story passes through many twists and turns and magical elements, before the two lovers are joined together. While watching the film, one gets this feeling – haan yes, this is how it happens in the adventure films of Hindi cinema. But the important thing to realize is – here is where it started. This is the original, and what followed are influenced from this one.

In Hindi films, the earliest reference we can garner is a silent film from 1931 – ‘Iraaque Ka Chor’. Although not essentially mentioning Baghdad, and in the absence of any plot details, it is possible that this film follows the Fairbanks original from 1924. Besides the interesting trivia that Baghdad and Basra were probably the only two well known cities of Iraq.

In the era of sound movies, 1934 is the first time this name appears. That year, two films were made – ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’ and ‘Iraaque Ka Chor’. The next in line is the 1946 film ‘Baghdad Ka Chor’, followed again in 1955 by another film of the same name. Then in 1968, we have the Dara Singh starrer ‘Thief Of Baghdad’. In 1977 came another version with the same title, the star cast being led by Shatrughan Sinha, Kabir Bedi and Sulakshana Pandit. In 1978, Kabir Bedi starred in another film by the same name, for TV.

With this song today we bring on board the 1968 film ‘Thief Of Baghdad’. The film is produced by Bohra Brothers and is directed by Shriram. The abbreviated list of actors is Dara Singh, Nishi, Helen, Savita, Jeevankala, P Kailash, BM Vyas, Sheikh, Ravi Kumar, Ram Kumar, Maqbool, Sunanda, Amritrana, Jilani, Sarita Devi, Munshi Munakka, Bijnor, Ramesh Kant, Johnny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Maruti, Rani, Gani, Mohammed Ali, B Sandow, Gulab, Gaffar, Mansoor, Mohammedali Steelman, Vimla, Khursheed and Saudagar Singh. And we see many of them in the video clip of this song.

The information about the songs in Geet Kosh is indicated as being not complete. It lists 5 songs, with indication that more songs are in the film. The film being available, I checked it and I can identify at least one more song which is not listed in Geet Kosh.

The credits of the film identify two songwriters – Aziz Ghaazi and SH Bihari. The writer of this song is not specifically identified. Music is given by Baldev Nath, which most likely is the same person as Baldev Nath Bali or BN Bali.

This song is a raaj darbaar dance song which is performed by Helen and Rani [Jeevankala]. The singing voice is just one, i.e. Asha Bhosle with the lines being shared by the two dancers on screen.
[Ed Note: Thanks to dear Prakash ji for correcting the identification of the lady dancer accompanying Helen in this song.]

In this screen situation, Nishi is the princess who has fallen in love with Dara Singh, a commoner. Dara Singh and his team is captured and are shown in chains. The scheming Wazir, role played by P Kailash (I need help to identify this actor) has imprisoned the King, and has forced the princess to marry him, given that her father and her lover are both his prisoners. So Nishi and this Wazir are seated in the two throne like chairs, and the dance is being performed for the occasion. As per the storyline of this film, Helen performs the role of Dara Singh’s younger sister.
[Ed Note: Once again thanks to dear Prakash ji for identifying the actor playing the role of the Wazir.]

The video clip shows a number of actors. There are two more men in chains. The one in mustard shirt with chains tied to his wrists (again need help to identify this actor) plays the role of Dara Singh’s younger brother in the film. The third person in chains, wearing a black shirt and with chains around his neck is Sheikh. There is a few other actors shown in momentary close up shots, who are also watching this performance. I request other readers and friends to please help identify them.

So with this song, the 1968 film ‘Thief Of Baghdad’ makes its debut on our blog. That also brings the count of films brought on board through this series now to 75. Wow. Let us see how many more we are able to add in the coming weeks. Working on the home work list that Katie Ben prepared for me, we shall not be hitting the century mark on this series, but I think we will get pretty close. 🙂

 

Song – Humko Bhi Marna Hai, Tumko Bhi Marna Hai  (Thief Of Baghdad) (1968) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Baldev Nath

Missing Films of 1960s – 70
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Almost like a déjà-vu happening today.

The year is 1968, one more than the previous episode – we had the film ‘Jungle Ki Hoor’ from `1967 yesterday. Today, the film is ‘Lutera Aur Jaadugar’. The word ‘Jaam’ appears in the song title. And the word ‘tauba-aashiqan’ appears in the body of the song. Other similarities – well they go without saying.  A perfect gem of a song from an unknown film, composed by an equally obscure and unfamiliar music director – Suresh Kumar.

Suresh Kumar – a name that is not easily remembered as a music director. But on checking the Geet Kosh, we find that his outings in the field, in terms of films and songs is not trivial. We are talking here about a career that starts around early 1950s and continues well into the 1980s. Till 1980, the data available in GK, he as about sixty songs from 10 films to his credit as an independent solo music director. And then we also find out that he paired up with another music director M Talwar, and the two composed music under the duo name of Suresh-Talwar. As a duo there are another 80 odd songs from another additional 12 films. That certainly is not an ignorable size of body of work.

The film comes from the banner of Zubi Films, Bombay and is directed by D Raman. The cast of actors is listed as – Azaad, Nishi, Jagdeep, Tabassum, Mohan Choti, Rajan Haksar, Sherry, Meenakshi, Heera Sawant, Ram Raseela, Noorjahan, Zeb Sultan, Bibi Bai, Ghulam Sabir, Jilani, Gopu, Luckyram, Prince Arjun, Nadir, Rajrani, and Praveen Bano. Reading this list, it is clear that this is a B/C grade stunt cum fantasy film.

Seven songs are listed for this film. Two songwriters – Yogesh and Anjaan. This song is from the pen of Yogesh. The song is apparently a twin dance song. The singing voices are of Krishna Kalle and Usha Khanna. Ah yes, the MD appearing as a singer for another MD. Plus another claim to rarity – a very rare combination of singing voices.

Listening to the song, the image comes to mind of two dancers on screen, dancing in a king’s court or in a pub. And possibly one of the on screen dancers may be Nishi herself. A typical ‘maikhaana’ song, done really well, I am sure you will enjoy this discovery.

Song – Jaam Bhar Bhar Ke Pila De Mere Saaqiya  (Lutera Aur Jaadugar) (1968) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Usha Khanna, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Suresh Kumar
Both

Lyrics

jaam bhar bhar ke pila de mere saaqiya
mujhko deewaana bana de mere saaqiya
mere saaqiya
aisi pila naa utre nasha
jaam bhar bhar ke pila de mere saaqiya
mere saaqiya
aisi pila naa utre nasha
jaam bhar bhar ke pila de mere saaqiya

berukhi se tumhari sitamgar
hamen kab tak shikaayat rahegi
dekh le le duaaen hamaari
teri mehfil salaamat rahegi
teri mehfil salaamat rahegi
oo oo oo oo
yun bula ke na dagaa de mere saaqiya
mujhko deewaana bana de mere saaqiya
mere saaqiya
aisi pila naa utre nasha
jaam bhar bhar ke pila de mere saaqiya

haaye tauba-aashiqan baankpan ye
hum hain qurbaan teri adaa pe
jaam kab se hamaara hai khaali
bhar de bhar de zaraa muskuraa ke
bhar de bhar de zaraa muskuraa ke
oo oo oo oo
thodi aankhon ki mila de mere saaqiya
mujhko deewaana bana de mere saaqiya
mere saaqiya
aisi pila naa utre nasha
jaam bhar bhar ke pila de mere saaqiya
mujhko deewaana bana de mere saaqiya
mere saaqiya
aisi pila naa utre nasha
jaam bhar bhar ke pila de mere saaqiya. . .

Here is the sixth and final song from “Pardesi”(1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

What a hidden gem of a song it is ! It is a synchronised dance song picturised on Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. The picturisation shows people gathered around the dancers who sing and dance while we have Manmohan Krishna playing “Been” and a gentleman (whom I am unable to identify) playing guitar.

This song can be described as a snake dance song, a dance form which has become quite popular nowadays thanks to Bangladeshi cricketers. 🙂 The snake dance steps of theb Bangladeshi cricketers were taken from the “Nagina”(1986) song Main teri dushman dushman tu meri main naagan to sapera. This dance step has been mass copied by Sri Lankan cricket watching public as well as famous people (like Sunil Gavaskar, for instance) by now. So the “novelty” value of that snake dance step has been lost. Have no worry. Here is another snake dance song, one that is performed by Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. Being a synchronised dance song, it is a fit snake dance song for a pair of Bangladeshi batsmen batting together at the crease. They can dance like Mumtaz and Padma Khanna whenever they feel that that are on the verge of winning a match. 🙂 And do not forget to give credit to me for this wonderful snake dance song. 🙂

With this song, “Pardesi”(1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Lyrics

din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan..aan
karoon yaad teri batiyaan..aan..aan..aan

din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan
karoon yaad teri batiyaan..aan..aan
piya tu hai kidhar
chadha jaaye re zehar
naagin si dasey ratiyaan
din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan

tere liye chal ke jidhar gayi re
apni hi chhaaya se mein darr gayi re
tere liye chal ke jidhar gayi re
apni hi chhaaya se mein darr gayi re
birhaa..
kuchh kaari..
aisi..
andhiaari..
dhadak rahi
taaron ki chhatiyaan
din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan
karoon yaad teri batiyaan..aan..aan
piya tu hai kidhar
chadha jaaye re zehar
naagin si dasey ratiyaan
din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan

kahaan hain wo jaadu bhare nayan tere
tu hi jo utaare to zehar utrey
kahaan hain wo jaadu bhare nayan tere
tu hi jo utaare to zehar utrey
saajan

khaaun jab dhokhe
hans hans ke nihaaren sakhiyaan

karoon yaad teri batiyaan..aan..aan
piya tu hai kidhar
chadha jaaye re zehar
naagin si dasey ratiyaan
din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan

aana hai to abhi aa ja o sajna
kal tak aaya bhi to jiungi kahaan
aana hai to abhi aa ja o sajna
kal tak aaya bhi to jiungi kahaan
aa re
piya aa re
jhaankun
khadi dwaare
tan pe sajey

din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan
karoon yaad teri batiyaan..aan..aan
piya tu hai kidhar
chadha jaaye re zehar
naagin si dasey ratiyaan
din raat jaley akhiaan..aan..aan

दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
करूँ याद तेरी बतियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ

दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
करूँ याद तेरी बतियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
पिया तू है किधर
चढ़ा जाएरे ज़हर
नागिन सी डसे रतियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ

तेरे लिए चल के जिधर गई रे
अपनी ही छाया से मैं डर गई रे
तेरे लिए चल के जिधर गई रे
अपनी ही छाया से मैं डर गई रे
बिरहा॰॰
कुछ कारी॰॰
ऐसी॰॰
अंधियारी॰॰
धडक रही तारों की छतियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
करूँ याद तेरी बतियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
पिया तू है किधर
चढ़ा जाएरे ज़हर
नागिन सी डसे रतियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ

कहाँ हैं वो जादू भरे नयन तेरे
तू ही जो उतारे तो ज़हर उतरे
कहाँ हैं वो जादू भरे नयन तेरे
तू ही जो उतारे तो ज़हर उतरे
साजन
तेरी हो के
खाऊँ जब धोखे
हंस हंस के निहारें सखियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
करूँ याद तेरी बतियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
पिया तू है किधर
चढ़ा जाएरे ज़हर
नागिन सी डसे रतियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ

आना है तो अभी आ जा ओ सजना
कल तक आया भी तो जियूँगी कहाँ
आना है तो अभी आ जा ओ सजना
कल तक आया भी तो जियूँगी कहाँ
आ रे
पिया आ रे
झाँकूँ
खड़ी द्वारे
तन पे सजे
मैं फूल पतियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
करूँ याद तेरी बतियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
पिया तू है किधर
चढ़ा जाएरे ज़हर
नागिन सी डसे रतियाँ
दिन रात जले अखियाँ॰॰आँ॰॰आँ
