Today’s song is from a South Indian film, dubbed into Hindi – Piya Milan-1958.

The decade of the 50’s saw almost a spate of Hindi films from South. Some were dubbed, some were remakes and a few were first made in Hindi before they were remade into Tamil or Telugu etc.

Film Titles having the word ” Piya” were made in every decade since the advent of the Talkie films, till the end of the Century.

30’s – Piya Pyaare-1934, Piya ki Jogan-1936
40″s – Piya Milaqn-1945, Piya Ghar Aaja-1947
50″s – Piya (UR), Piya Milan-1958
60″s – Piya Milan ki Aas-1961
70’s – Piya Ka Ghar-1972
80’s – Piya Milan 1985
90’s – Piya ki Jogan-1997.

Except the 2 films of the 30’s and the un released film, I have seem most other films. I consider ‘ Piya Ka Ghar”-1972 as the best among the ‘Piya’ films. It was a remake of a Hit Marathi film – Mumbaicha Jawai-1970. It was directed by my favourite Basu Chaterjee. A genuinely talented actress Jaya Bhaduri was cast opposite a very handsome Non Actor Anil Dhavan in this film.

Film “Piya Milan” was originally a Tamil film MARMAVEERA-56, dubbed in Hindi by R R Productions. The film was originally made by Jubilee films, Madras. The star cast was Shri Ram, Vyjayantimala, Raja Sulochana, V.Nagaiah, T S Baliah, P S Veerappa, Tanghvelu, Chandra Babu etc.

The Hindi version was directed by Raghunath and the music was by Ramesh Naidu. Most songs were having the same tunes as given by the Tamil original’s composer S.Vedhu. The Hindi songs were written by Harsh(3) and Hasrat Jaipuri(6).

The greatest attraction of this film was the Guest appearance by N T Rama Rao, Sivaji Ganeshan and Gemini Ganeshan.

These are the heavyweight actors of the south. Since the 1950’s decade, every south artiste’s dream was to shine in Hindi film industry, because Hindi films meant All India fame and an honour. In this dream many actresses achieved success, but comparatively actors were almost nowhere. The only name perhaps could be taken was that of actor Ranjan and few more. However, Jamuna, Vaijayantimala, Hema malini, Ragini, Padmini, Rekha and many more actresses from South became famous in Hindi films. Likewise when the Tamil and Telugu industry became a big one, many actresses like Khushbu etc from the Hindi land became famous in South films. Somehow males could not achieve this.

One of the major problems for south Indian artistes is the Hindi language. The actresses like Vaijayantimala, Hema Malini and Rekha became experts, but Southern actors could not cross this hurdle. N.T.Ramarao ( 28-5-1923 to 18-1-1996) too tried hard. He featured in 23 Hindi films which were mostly dubbed films barring few. One film Brahmarshi Vishwamitra-1991 was even directed by him. Sivaji Ganeshan (1-10-1927 to 21-7-2001) a winner of the prestigious ” Dadasaheb Phalke Award” in 1996, also featured in 19 Hindi films. Gemini Ganesan-real name R.Ganesan ( 17-11-1920 to 22-3-2005) was actress Rekha’s father. He acted in 24 Hindi films.

Similarly many music directors also had the same desire to shine in Hindi films, but had the same problem of language. One of these MDs was P.Ramesh Naidu who gave music to the Hindi film Piya Milan-1958.

Pasupuleti Ramesh Naidu (Born 18-10-1933,Died 2-9-2005) was born in Kondapalli in Krishna District (Andhra Pradesh). He was so obsessed with music that he ran away and landed in Bombay when he was 14 year old. B R Chopra took him under his wings and Ramesh learnt Instrumentation and orchestration in HMV at Bombay.

He started his music career at the age of 17 years with a Marathi film ” Bhandawal Paahije “-1950, produced, Directed and acted by Kishore Sahu. After a few years he went back to Andhra and got married. He got a son also and then he came to Bombay, on his way to Calcutta. he spent 10 years there giving music to Bangla, Oriya and Nepali films.

He was invited to Madras and he gave music to Amma mata-72. He settled there with his family. He gave music in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films. He came to Bombay from time to time to give music to Dubbed and Remade films from the South. He also gave music in a few Bhojpuri films. His Hindi films were Hamlet-54, Jay Simha-54, Piya Milan-58, Nartaki Chitra-65, Ganga Bhavani-79, Azaadi ki Oar-86,and Hum bhi kuch kam nahin-1983.

His first south film was Dampatyam-57 and last was Ish Gup chup-1993. He surpassed Salil Chaudhari by giving music in 10 Indian languages( Salil da gave music in 9 . Ramesh Naidu got the National Award for the film ‘Megh Sandesham’.

Naidu left this world on 2-9-2005, at Hyderabad.

PIYA MILAN-1958 was a story of Kings, Queens and the palace matters. The storyline was…

Maharaja Kulasekhara is the king of Kurni Empire. He has a beautiful daughter Vijaya (Vyjayanti mala), who is in love with a young rich boy, Mahinder (Shri Ram).

Maharaja Parakram Bahu of the neighbouring kingdom comes calling and before going back proposes to Vijaya. he is told that she is already engaged and this alliance is not possible.

Parakram goes back enraged. He consults his vazir, Nari and they decide to destroy Kulasekhara.

They tempt Srimantha, the commander of Kulshekar and then attack Kurni, capture the Maharaja and abduct Vijaya.

The kingdom is then given to Shrimantha. Shrimantha and his cronies torture the poor Janata and loot them.

Suddenly, a masked man called PARAMVEER appears from nowhere and protects the oppressed janata. He also punishes the cronies and Looters.

Meanwhile Parakram Bahu decided to marry Vijaya forcibly.

Getting this news, Paramveer attacks Parakram Bahu in the night ,captures him and rescues the princess Vijaya.

Then Param veer leads a mutiny and defeats Srimantha and rescues Maharaja Kulasekhara.

Finally, it is revealed that Param Veer is no one else but Mahinder ,the fiance of Vijaya.

All is well, after this.

Today’s song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and Om Verma. I do not know anything about this singer and even after my attempts, I failed to get his information from any known source. But it does seem that this was his only song in a Hindi film. The video shows the song shot on Helen and an actor whom I could not recognise. May be he was from the south.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from the 1982 release “Raaste Pyaar Ke”. It was directed and produced by V B Rajendra Prasad; essentially meaning it was a South Indian production house. It was a remake of a Telugu hit of the ’70s. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal, SP Balasubramanyam, Kishore Kumar were the singers used.

The movie had six songs of which the folllowing two are on the blog:

Song Date of posting
Ye waqt na kho jaaye 4 June 2012
Tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe laambe raaste pyaar ke 10 October 2020

The cast had Shabana Azmi-Rekha-Jeetendra as the main protagonists and Utpal Dutt, Shaukat Kaifi (mother of Shyama- Shabana Azmi), Parikshit Sahni, Ashalata (bhaiyya and bhabhi to Mohan- Jeetendra), Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Nadira (uncle and aunt of Mohan and Sohan). Then we had Om Puri (playing a good friend to Gauri- Rekha), Yunus Parvez, Mazhar Khan, Baby Khusboo (niece to Mohan) also in the movie. The post by Nahmji gives a general idea about the film’s story.

The festival season has begun with the arrival of the months of Aashaada, Shraavan and Bhadrapada. We had Raksha Bandhan, Nariyal Purnima and a few other festivals last weekend. This week it is Gokulashtami/ Krishnashtami/ Janmashtami; call it by any name but we are celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna who is said to have been born on the night of Ashtami (eighth day) after the full moon.

Lord Krishna was born when his parents were held captive by his uncle in Mathura. But at the particular hour, when the Lord was born, the guards, miraculously, were fast asleep. This gave time to Vasudev (the lord’s father) time to transport the new-born across the river Yamuna to Gokul to foster parents Nanda and Yashoda. It was raining heavily that night. He is said to have been transported in a wicker basket with the multiheaded serpent- Vasuki shielding the baby from the rain. So the next day after Janmashtami can be described as Gokulashtami. There are many legends of the lord which are related with great relish by generations of devotees. Stories about how he loved to play pranks on the Gopikas of Brindavan and played Raas-Leela with them, ate freshly churned butter with relish, his friendship with Sudama etc. and many more were bed-time stories that grandparents told their grandkids.

Coming back to the celebrations associated with the festival, different regions of the country celebrate it differently. Even the prasad (offerings to the lord) differs region to region. But the offerings will definitely have preparations of Poha (beaten rice), butter and curds. It is said that these three are most loved by the lord. Then there are devotees who keep whole night vigil praying and singing bhajans and distribute prasad around midnight. They bathe and decorate their idols of the lord, dress him up and put the Balgopal in tiny cradles and pull the cradles with ropes of flower garland.

Today’s multi-singer (Asha- Usha- Kishore) song has Mohan playing a KRISHNA with Shyama, Gauri and their friends; there are ropes of flower garland, flute, mor-mukkut etc. That is the reason for me presenting this song today where the words are for lord Krishna and sung for Mohan the bachpan ka friend (childhood friend) of Shyama and Gauri.

Hullo Atuldom

“Biwi Aur Makaan” (1966) had songs written by Gulzar, which were tuned by Hemant Kumar. It had 10 or 11 songs that were in the voices of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar, Mohd. Rafi etc. The movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and produced by Hemant Kumar. Dialogues (the crux of any comedy movie) were by Rajinder Singh Bedi. Mehmood and Biswajeet headed a cast which also had Kalpana, Shabnam, Padma Khanna, Keshto Mukherjee, Bipin Gupta, Ashish Kumar etc.

The movie was the remake of a Bengali film “Joy Maa Kali Boarding” and an inspiration for the Marathi hit of the ’80s ‘Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi”. In Telugu it was made as “Chitram Bhalare Vichitram”. It has been made in Kannada, Tamil and the story was so inspiring that it had remakes in Bengali in 2017, Punjabi 2014 and Hindi 2009.

The story was of four bachelors who migrate from their villages to the big city. While attempting to access accomodation, they are repeatedly told that rooms will only be rented to married couples, not to bachelors. Frustrated at this, two of them disguise themselves as women, and pose as wives for the other two males. They are able to secure accommodation with the Mishra family. Complications arise when the two “women” fall in love with Mishra’s two lovely daughters – with results that can only be described as hilarious. Keshto Mukherjee’s act ad facial expression as ‘Badi Bahu’ and Biswajeet as the beautiful ‘Choti Bahu’ should be seen at least once. Of course, it was Mehmood’s timing that was the highlight of the film.

The following three songs from the movie are already on the blog:

Song Date of post Post by
Dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi 23 June 2009 (by Atulji)
Jaane kahaan dekha hai 2 June 2014 (by Sudhirji)
Mujhe mohabbat ho gayi hai 22 December 2016 (by Maheshji)

I had commented to the song “dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi” in 2017 after seeing the Marathi version of this movie about how Ashok Saraf matched Mehmood (imho) and Sachin looked as pretty as Biswajeet in the guise of a lady.

We are having this song today to wish the poet-lyricist-author-director- producer- screenwriter Sampooran Singh Kalra a.k.a Gulzar on turning a year older. He was born in 1934 in Dina of Jhelum district which is in present day Pakistan. He is married to actress Rakhee and has a daughter Meghana who is also a director of movies like ‘Filhaal’, ‘Raazi’, Chhapaak’ and such other non-run-of-the-mill movies.

Gulzar (who initially worked under the name Gulzar Deenvi) started his music career with SD Burman in the 1963 classic ‘Bandini’ and worked with many music directors like Salil Chowdhury, Vishal Bhardwaj, A.R. Rehman etc. Can one forget the songs that his pairing with RD Burman gave lovers of Bollywood music. He is a winner of the Padma Bhushan, Sahitya Academy award and Dadasaheb Phalke award. He is a 5 time National award, one Academy award (Oscars) and Grammy too in addition to innumerable Filmfare awards.

It would be a ‘chota munh aur badi baat’ (holding a candle to the sun) kind of situation if I attempt writing anything on such an accomplished personality. So, let us get to today’s song and Just wish our favourite writer/ lyricist/ producer/ director/ screenwriter/ poet a healthy and peaceful time ahead.

Song-Aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin (Biwi Aur Makaan)(1966) Singers-Usha Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics(Based on Audio link)

aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
na main soyi na jaagi sataao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

kaun thha
kaisa thha
bataao naa
koi anjaan si ek pehchaan thhi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
koi anjaan si ek pehchhan thi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
na main boli
na main jaagi
sirf saanson ki awaaz aati rahi
ek aaghosh mein kaid thhi raat bhar
lo bata toh diya sataao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
na jali main
na bujhi main
mere honthon pe saawan baraste rahe
shokh malta raha sediyaan raat bhar
lo bata toh diya ab sataao nahin
jaao jaao hamein yoon banaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupaao nahin

“Parvarish” (1977) was one of the four movies that was directed by Manmohan Desai in 1977. It was produced by A A Nadiadwala. It had a small starcast headed by Shammi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Tom Alter, Yusuf Khan (Zebisco of Amar Akbar Anthony which also released in 1977) plus some of Manmohan Desai’s favourite actors of that year viz. Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Kadar Khan and Amjad Khan. Kadar Khan also was in-charge of the dialogues.

The movie’s songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Laxmi Pyare. Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh and Lata- Asha- Usha were the playback singers used for the six songs of the movie, five of which are there on the blog as under.

High time we took this movie, which first appeared on the blog in 2009, to “Yyiippeeee” station. And July 8th is a good date to do so as it is the 63rd birthday of the sweet-cute-charming-elegant-beautiful Neetu Singh a.k.a Baby Sonia of the gorgeous smile. She was born in Delhi in a Sikh family with the birth name Harneet Kaur. She began as a child actor in the late ’60s as baby Sonia with movies like ‘Suraj’, ‘Dus Lakh’, ‘Do Dooni Chaar’ etc. was seen as an adolescent in ‘Pavitra Paapi’ ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ etc before turning to adult roles with ‘Rickshawala’ ‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’ etc in 1973.

She had a good successful career of nearly 10-12 years as an adult before she bade goodbye to stardom to raise a family. We all know she is Bahu of the Kapoor-Khandaan, Mrs. Rishi Kapoor, mother of actor Ranbir Kapoor, etc.. But she is also Neetu Singh (Kapoor to the present generation of moviegoers) and we are all her fans. Here is wishing her good health and cheer. Happy Birthday Baby Sonia.

Today’s song is a stage song where Amjad Khan is the chief guest and Neetu and Shabo (Desai didn’t break his head in naming his heroines) are the qawwali artists on the stage and use the situation to ‘take shots’ at Amjad Khan (ex. daku Mangal Singh) who was the cause of the death of their parents (Ram Sethi and Chand Usmani in blink and miss appearances). If I remember correctly, this was the song just before the climax of the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Usha Mangeshkar.

#the Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 8 # Usha Mangeshkar #
———————————————–———————————–—————— ——-

Welcome all to the eighth article in this series. Today’s voice is Usha Mangeshkar.
Today’s voice needs no introduction as all of us like minded people are aware about her family members and how she joined her elder sisters in singing for movies.
We are also aware of how she has carved a niche for herself among the many singers who ruled the hearts of millions of cine goers and HFM lovers in all these years.

A detailed write-up about Usha Mangeshkar has already been done by our inhouse encyclopedia Shri Arun ji in his post here.

I am reproducing the following text from his write-up (with his due permission) here.

Born on the 15th of December 1935, at Sangli, Usha is the 4th and the youngest sister of Mangeshkars. The line-up is very regular-exactly 2 year’s difference in the ages of the siblings-
Lata born in 1929
Meena born in 1931
Asha born in 1933
Usha born in 1935
Hridaynath born in 1937.

When master Deenanath died in 1942, Lata, all of 13 years, had to act and sing in films to earn money for the family. Meena, not so keen on singing chose to stay at home and look after the Mother and young Usha and Hridaynath. Asha joined her sister in acting, singing and earning money for the family. Usha was just 7-year-old, so she too remained at home. Besides singing, she was interested in Painting, so she took lessons from the famous painter of those days, M.R. Achrekar. In addition, she also continued learning Music from Pt. Tulsidas Sharma, K. Mahavir and Sushant Maharaj.

When Asha left suddenly and went away-in 1948- with Ganpatrao Bhonsle, twice her age, the family got a terrible jolt. The financial responsibility now fell only on Lata Mangeshkar. At the age of 19 years, Usha decided to start earning herself by singing in films and C. Ramchandra gave her the break with a song” Bhabhi aayee” from ‘Subah ka Tara’-1954. Her very first song became so popular that she was flooded with children’s song offers. Her next popular song was ‘Aplam chaplam’ from Azaad, also by C. Ramchandra.

Usha Mangeshkar’s voice was thereafter used for many children songs. For me, the oldest memory of her children song is the song from ‘Waapas-1969’ which I have presented on the blog and the song is ‘jhunjhuna jhunjhuna’.

Thereafter as I get involved more with Bollywood songs, I became aware of many of her earlier songs. Like when I came into the contact with this blog, and became a Sahir fan, I got to listened her duet song with Asha Bhonsle from the ‘1955’ movie ‘Devdas’ i.e., ‘o albele panchhi tera door thhikaana hai’.

She also got to sing many duet songs with her sister and other female singers in HFM. Many of such duets have been popular and are favorites of music lovers.

And then come the most important period of her singing careers which the ‘decade of seventies 1971-1980’.

During these years, her voice not only featured in many songs but her many songs become popular too. It will not be inappropriate to say that her singing career was at its ‘peak’ during the years of ‘seventies’. That was for Hindi as well as Marathi movies.

For Marathi movies her voice was there in every Dada Kondke movie which became ‘Jubilee Hits’. I remember many songs from such movies that were frequently played on loudspeakers everywhere during festivals and other programs.
Also, the songs from the movie ‘Pinjara-1972’ went on to became huge hits with her voice appearing in six of the nine songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Ram Kadam.

In 1975 came the movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ which was big hit and so were its songs. Usha Mangeshkar’s voice featured in three of the seven songs in this movie. All the three songs sung by her were popular among the masses. Music for this movie was composed by C. Arjun. The song ‘Main to aarti utaaroon re Santoshi Maata ki’ became hugely popular and it remained her all time big hit and highlight of her Hindi movie singing career.

In 1977 came the movie ‘Inkaar’ and its song ‘mungdaa mungdaa main gud ki dali’ was a runaway hit and it was also the favorite of almost each orchestra programs happening then.

I would also like to mention few of her songs here which I like very much.

‘Sainaath tere hazaaron haath’ from ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba-1977’,

‘ye jeena hai angoor ka daanaa’ from the movie ‘Khatta Meethha-1977’,

‘mujhe pyaar ka tohfaa de ke’ from the movie ‘Kaalaa Patthar-1979’, which was not included in the movie,
‘sultaanaa sultaanaa mera naam hai sultaanaa’ from the movie ‘Taraanaa-1979’,
And in the later years songs like ‘goron ki naa kaalon ki’, the unforgettable ‘shaam rangeen huyi hai tere aanchal ki tarah’ … There might be other notable songs too which I might be missing here.

And that is the reason that Usha Mangeshkar, because of the many songs of her in the seventies, and many nostalgic moments for us, people like me, who were growing in the seventies, is the voice in this series.

And I must mention here the today’s song which is the very special song for me, as it still has the same effect on me, whenever I listen to it or watch it on the video or other video media.
When I was noting it down for this post and watching it I still get the goose-pimples, because of the singing of this song, the overall composition and the picturization of this song, that is embedded in my mind since my childhood. Specially the landing of Santoshi Maa in the ‘mrityu-lok’ from the ‘swarg-lok’ 😊

So, even if Usha Mangeshkar had sung only this song, she would still have the voice for me in this series for the nostalgia associated with this song for me.

This song is from the 1975 movie ‘Jai Santosh Maa’. Lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep and music is composed by C. Arjun.

On screen this song is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal and many others with Anita Guha as Santoshi Maa can be seen in the picturization of this song.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma. It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’. Bharat Bhushan makes a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and that is exactly the same day forty-six years back. I checked, it was Wednesday on this date and may be the movie was released the coming Friday after that. (Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this).

(Editor’s note- The movie was released on 15 August 1975, which was a friday-and India’s independence day. Another movie called “Sholay”(1975) was also released on the same day.)

Today is Friday and what a better day to present this song today.

Let us now listen to this wonderful song…

I hope you like the song as I do. 😊

Geeta Dutt – Solos and Duets (05)
———————————–————–

Geeta Dutt – Solos and Duets (05)
———————————–————–

Among the first few songs, I had selected for posting in this series, is this group song, with folksy tune.  The film is ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1958), the music is composed by Chitragupt and lyricist is Prem Dhawan.  The title of the film evokes memories of late Sridevi and her double role and the comic act in the film of same title in the year 1989.

The song is a brief one for a group song and the lyrics are very colorful, and not just because of the color-coding.  Reminds me of a famous song, a truet of Lata-Rafi-Mukesh, with choruses and Rafi Sahab’s alaaps – “Ramaiyyaa Vastavaiyya“. This is a famous song, and we know all about this one.

Present song is not so famous one, but for all I know it might have been a hit and popular one in 1958.  Singers are Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar.   I found it last year on YouTube and saved it for this series, as it sounded folksy and peppy, with the clap sounds enhancing the enjoyment.  Apart from ‘Qawwalis’ and the ‘Tappa’ genre, the folk forms use the clap as a rhythmic addition in the song, which must be enjoyable for those not actually singing or playing music instrument, as they can also participate.  Hindi film songs are a dime a dozen for using ‘claps’ in songs.

A few such songs (non-Qawwali) which come to mind :

Laara Lappa Laara Lappa Laai Rakhda” – from ‘Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949)
Na munh Chhupa Ke Jiyo” – from ‘Hamraaz’ (1967)
Is Duniya Mein Jeena Hai To Sun Lo Meri Baat” – from ‘Gumnaam’ (1965)
Ye Chaand Sa Roshan Chehra” – from ‘Kashmir KI Kali’ (1964)
Suno Jaana Suno Jaana Mere Pehlu Se Mat Jaana” – from ‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain” (1965)

Also there are many ‘garba’ songs which have women dancing with accompanying hand claps.

I have found a pdf file containing list of all Hindi film songs by Geeta Dutt.  But I don’t know a way of sorting data, if it is possible in pdf file.  I will try to get it converted in excel, that will make it easy to sort data.  For example, we can know how many songs Geeta Dutt sang for Chitragupt in her career.

Atulji is doing a great job of collating information of all Lata mangeshkar’s songs year wise  viz-a-viz songs posted in the blog.   I can see that a similar collation of data is possible with a list of all songs of Geeta Dutt, with the help of this pdf file.

Okay, I found a way.  I searched and found 94 times Chitragupt’s name in the pdf list of Geeta Dutt’s songs.  So here goes the stats:

Sr. no. Name of singer/s Total songs with Chitragupt Songs posted in the blog
1 Geeta Dutt 94 48
2 Geeta Dutt-Rafi 28* 19
3 Geeta-Rafi-Usha Mangeshkar 2 1

*Includes 4 truets, two with Usha Mangeshkar and two with S Balbir.

Done with the stats, so let us move to the song, of which only audio is available.

Song – Hamen Maar Gayi Re Tirchhi Najariyaa Tori (Chaalbaaz) (1958), Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Geeta Dutt, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Rajesh Khanna – Birth Anniversary on 29/12/2020
—————————————————————-

Rajesh Khanna, the first superstar of hindi films, was born as Jatin Khanna on 29/12/1942 at Amritsar, Punjab. He is said to have had 17 solo hits from 1969 to 1971. This might be the only thing where Rajesh Khanna is ahead of superstar of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan. He holds the record of 48 Platinum Jubilee hits and 26 Golden jubilee hits plus 22 silver jubilee hits. Certainly overtook the Silver Jubilee star Rajendra Kumar in a big way, who had 25 silver Jubilees in his time.

Not, really having lived through the era of ‘Rajesh Khanna phenomena’, makes the experience that much less effective, but I have read a lot about it in urdu film magazine “Shama”. I can also vouch for his versatility as actor, who was comfortable in any type of character. Even through the superstardom, the quality of real story based meaningful films was maintained. With his performance in films like Anand, Safar, Khamoshi, Bawarchi, Mere Jeewan saathi, Amar Prem, Aradhana, Bahaaron ke Sapne, Namak Haram etc. he proved his mettle as an versatile actor.

As a tribute on his 78th birth anniversary, I am presenting a song from ‘Disco Dancer’ 1982, where Rajesh Khanna had a special appearance. There are quite a few special appearances and guest appearances in his filmography, which shows he did remember the benefactors in his life and did return the favours if he could. He did many number of films with Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Manmohan Desai, J. Om Prakash and Shakti Samant.

The song is a multiple version song, composed by Bappi Lahiri and written by Anjaan. Suresh Wadkar is giving playback to Rajesh Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar is singing for a child artist playing the young Mithun Chakravorty. This happy version is a ‘road side tamasha’ category song as Rajesh Khanna and the child perform in the streets. The child artist could be Baby Pinky. The sad version is a climax situation song in the auditorium, where again Rajesh Khanna is trying to coax a grown up disco star Mithun Chakravorty to start singing. This is a solo version of Suresh Wadkar.

A Trivia about this film:
Rajesh Khanna agreed to make a small appearance in this film without charging a fee. He did so to return a favour he owed to the film’s producer, director B. Subhash. It was Subhash who had recommended Rajesh Khanna to the producers of “Thodi si Bewafaii” (1980) when they were considering Sanjeev Kumar for the film’s lead role. The success of “Thodi si Bewafaii” helped stabilise Khanna’s career at a time when his films were bombing one after the other.

These two songs from this film are so far posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Krishna dharti pe aa jaa tu 12 April 201
I am a Disco dancer 16 June 2018

A last memory about Rajesh Khanna is a poetry loving character who is seen carrying around and reading a small book of Urdu poetry in this song of ‘Anand’. The book could be Sahir Ludhianvi’s “Parchhaiyaan”, but I am not sure.

It is a great tribute to the love of the language if a Bengali set up film shows a book in urdu script. The Bengali itself being a rich language, literature wise and status wise. It could have been Rajesh Khanna’s own choice.

Version 1 (happy):

Version 2 (sad) :

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)–Song No.101
———————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 december 2010) saw seven songs getting covered from seven movies. First song of the day was covered at 9:19 AM and the final song at 1:01 PM. So unlike other days, when all songs would get covered before 10 AM, this day I struggled to publish the songs of the day.

Here are the details of the seven songs covered that day:-

Blog post number Song Movie (year) Remarks
3374 Tum kyaa jaano more maathe ki bindiyaa ka mol Kaneez(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
3375 Muhabbat par bahaar aati jahaan gulzaar ho jaataa Shair (1949) Movie YIPPED by now
3376 Duniyaa waalon badaa hai mushqil apne dil ko todnaa Chhoti Bhaabhi(1950) Seven songs covered out of nine
3377 Dil le gaya ji koi dil le gayaa Sanam(1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
3378 Mere chaand mere laal re Deewaana(1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
3379 Aji o suno to 12 O’clock(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now
3380 Ham jee lenge bin tumhaare…tum meri zindagi ho Dillagi (1966) 4 songs covered out of 7

One can see that five out of seven movies whose songs were discussed ten years ago have since been YIPPEED.

“Dillagi”(1966) is one of the unYIPPEED movies and so it is one of the two movies eligible for blog ten year challenge today.

“Dillagi”(1966) was produced by Tony Walker and directed by S Bannerjee for Golden Films, Bombay. The movie had Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Bela Bose, Johny Walker, Nazima, Vijay Kumar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Amar, Keshav, Khurshid, Hammad, Tuntun, Moolchand, Pravin Paul, Tony Walker, Bela Bose, Zeb Sultana, Shabana, Roop Kumari, Ravi Kant, Ratan Gaurang, Tulsi, Aziz, Maqsood, Manjeet, Abdul Jabbar, Suresh, N.Misra, Samarlal Damani, Ajay Kumar, Abdul Kader, Baxi, Shrfu, Edwina etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it and four of these songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Dillagi”(1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Musc is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The fun teasing song is picturised as a party song on Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Tony Walker or Vijay Kumar, Chinoo Shikari, Edwina etc.

I heard this fun song during my early childhood and I loved the lyrics, especially the words kabootar kabootar thrown in the lyrics for no apparent reasons other than to make it a fun song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4528 Post No. : 16089

15 August 1975 saw the release of a movie that went on to become an all time surprise hit. No, I am not talking about “Sholay”(1975) which was released on that date. “Sholay”(1975) was a big budget multistarrer movie and it was expected to do well at the box office, at least by the makers of the movie, if not the trade pundits.

Another movie was released on 15 august 1975. It was a low key release in a few movie halls. This movie was expected to do a modest business and was expected to last just one or two weeks in movie halls before being replaced by other movies.

But surprisingly, this movie, which had no big stars, and which was a religious movie (that was considered infra dig by city bred movie goers) began to draw crowds that was comparable to the crowd thronging to watch “Sholay”(1975).

Seeing that this movie was made on a shoe strong budget, this movie turned out to be one of the most profitable movie ever for its makers. People would offer prayer in the movie hall and perform aarti. This goddess, which few people were aware of, suddenly found a pride of place among the pantheon of Gods.

This movie, a surprise all time super duper hit, was produced by Satram Rohara and directed by Vijay Sharma for Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay had Kanan Kaushal, Ashish Kumar, Anita Guha (playing the title role), Bharat Bhushan, Rajani Bala, Bela Bose, B. M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Manohar Desai, Dilip Dutta, Mahipal, Padmarani, Leela Mishra, Sushila Devi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. The movie makers had roped in C Arjun ( largely a music director of B grade movies) as the music director. Kavi Pradeep, a top lyricist of 1940s and 1950s, but more or less out of work by that time, was signed up as the lyricist. He was an inspired choice as the lyricist, seeing that penning religious songs and patriotic songs was his strong suit.

All the songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became hugely popular and they remain so. Kavi Pradeep, in addition to penning the lyrics, also sung two songs in the movie in his characteristic style and these songs became all time classics.

Today (11 December 2020) is the 22nd remembrance day of Kavi Pradeep(6 February 1915 – 11 December 1998). On this occasion, here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975). This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar who found herself in the role of leading female playback singer in the movie, which was rare for her, as she normally got one song in most movies, for some side actors.

This song happens to be the 200th song of Usha Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog. It is quite a befitting song to mark her double century in the blog.

This song, a prayer to Santoshi Maa, is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala (long long ago).
