Blog Day :

5104 Post No. : 17043

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 10
———————————–
03Jul – 09Jul, 2012

OK so, another week. Just made it in time this time. 🙂

This thing about the ten year recalls and reminiscences, it surely brings up some very interesting  experiences. And I believe, the one connected with this week, will be one of the most interesting. Before getting into the numbers game, let me share this first.

Ten years back, as I was checking out and reviewing the activities on the blog for the seven day period – 3rd July to 9th July, 2012, I came across this very interesting exchange in the comments section of the one of posts of that week. It happened on the 8th of July. That day, as many as 6 posts were published. And the blog achieved a major milestone. The sixth song that got posted on that day is “Ye Wohi Geet Hai Jisko Maine”, in the voice of Kishore Kumar. The film is ‘Maan Jaaiye’ from 1972. The song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and the music is by Jaidev. With this post and song, the blog reached the 6200th milestone.

Writing on the occasion of completing 62 centuries, Atul ji had pointed out that the latest century (from 6101 to 6200) was achieved in 20 days. He also wrote that it was slower than the fastest that the blog had covered till then – which was sixteen days. But also that it was faster than the immediate preceding century (6001 to 6100) which had been accomplished in 27 days. The rest of the article with the post also makes a very interesting reading.

In the comments section, there is an exchange between Atul ji and myself, which is oh so pertinent for this 10 year recall of our own history. I reproduce the comments here verbatim, and I am sure you will see the immediate connection. I had written,

Oh wow,
another century already.

Atul ji,

Sometimes I do get caught unawares. 🙂

Congratulations – a wonder is unfolding, as we go on day by day, adding more to this wonderful collection. Mark my words, dear Atul ji and all other dear friends on this blog. Seven to ten years down the road, we will be viewing this as our own history, and will wonder . . . ‘Oh, did we really came up this path.’

Congratulations again, to ALL.

To my observation, Atul ji had responded as follows,

Thanks.

You are right. If we can continue for ten years at this rate, then the collection of songs here, alongwith the nuggets of valuable informations being gathered will become a priceless source of reference for music lovers.

In the context of where we were at that time, this exchange would have been regarded as wishful thinking. We were about 4 years into this journey as of that date. Our view into the future was more an apprehension rather than an educated expression of planning and resolve. Reading this exchange from 10 years ago, and in the context of where we are today with this journey, we can very aptly term this as visionary. Ha. Sure. Was it really so visionary at that juncture? Of course we did not know. It was an instinctive expression of what-if-then kind of a thought in our minds.

But then reading these words after ten years, it really gives such an exhilarating feeling of triumph and realization – yes, we did make it, and we did make it in great style, with continued strength and sustained consistency for all to see. And more than just a wonder – we HAVE a blog that surely is – “a priceless source of reference for music lovers“.

In the post Atul ji had specifically pointed out that although the pace on the blog may not be chugging along as fast as he would like to (at that time), but that he was very happy with the consistency of effort and the great feeling of continued success that was brought in by the fact that our onward progression continued to bring up milestone after milestone on the blog. Yes, ‘exhilarating’ surely is the right word.

The pace has surely slowed down significantly. But the spirit of continuity and forward progress has never faltered. In four years we had breached the 6200th mark. In the ten years since, we have added almost another eleven thousand posts, another eleven thousand songs, which just wishful thinking back then. As I have written earlier also, we have run out of epithets and qualifiers for this ongoing wonderful journey of music.

And it continues. . . 😀

I return to the numbers game and the review of the postings from that week. The following table contains the day by day information of the posts from that week.

As the table shows, a total of 40 songs were posted in that week, at a daily average of about 5.7 songs per day. Wow. What a powerhouse of energy it has been.

Another week of no repeats – meaning that 40 films got showcased that week. Of these, nine films had made their debut that week. And yes, during that week, one film was Yippeee’d. That is the 1959 film ‘Kavi Kaalidas’, which got Yippeee’d on 5th July of 2012. Since that week, during the past 10 years, another 21 of the 40 films that were represented, have been Yippeee’d.

About the decade preferences, here is the break up

1930s  –  (none)
1940s  –  6
1950s  –  16
1960s  –  10
1970s  –  6
1980s  –  2

As always, the distribution is obviously weighed down in the decades of 50s and 60s.

Of the 40 films from that week, 19 films still continue to have ‘Pending’ status. Of these 19 ‘Pending’ films, for 6 of them the Geet Kosh indicates that maybe all song were not released as gramophone records. We may not see a complete Yippeee status for these films

The song presented today is from the 1960 film ‘Duniya Jhukti Hai’. The songs of this film are from the pen of Rajendra Krishan and music is from the mind of Hemant Kumar. Just to remind readers – this is the film that contains the iconic popular song “Phoolon Se Dosti Hai Kaanton Se Yaari Hai”. This song was posted during the week under review – on 3rd July, 2012. Another very famous and popular song of this film is “Gumsum Sa Ye Jahaan, Ye Raat Ye Hawa”.

Our dear Arun ji has provided the following summary of this film,

DUNIYA JHUKTI HAI (1960) was a Wadia Movietone film, which was a surprise. Wadia Movietone was known only to make stunt or costume films of B grade. This was a social film trying to give a message that Evil work never pays.

Anyway, the producer/director was JBH Wadia himself and the music was by Hemant Kumar, ably assisted by Rizbert, his loyal companion of many movies. This Rizbert was from Goa and was an expert like other Goanese in film industry, in making notation based tunes.

One more interesting point about this film was that there were 3 Agha’s in this film. One was actor Agha Jan, the other was cinematographer Agha Hasham and the third was Agha Jani Kasmiri who wrote the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film.

Mohan is an honest to the core young man, in love with a girl. The girl ditches him by marrying some rich man. Mohan is frustrated and he becomes a gunda, joins a gang of a Boss whom no one has seen. He also changes his name to Bankelal. (Sunil Dutt).

One day this Banke saves a child Munna (Daisy Irani) from drowning and they become close friends as Munna has no father. Munna’s mother Laxmi (Shyama) does not approve this and warns Munna to keep away from Banke, as he is a gunda.

Munna falls ill and Banke visits him, promising him to reform and become a good man. He goes and surrenders to the police, but police want him to help them capture the Boss. The Boss is already looking for Banke as he does not want to lose him. He kidnaps Munna to blackmail Banke to return to his fold. There is a fight and when Banke is about to kill the Boss (BM Vyas), Laxmi reveals that Boss is Munna’s father. Boss runs away but is killed by the police.

Banke marries Laxmi and they live happily with Munna.

The song is a mujra song, which is performed on screen by Kumkum. The quality of the video is not great, and it is difficult to identify the other performers present in the scene. Dear Prakash ji has helped to identify the dancer Kumkum and two other performers present in this clip – Wasti and Kesar.

A wonderfully crafted song that has been performed equally well by Kumkum. A great reminder, and a great recall – where we were ten years ago, and what were our hopes and aspirations.

The lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji. Listen to this less heard, but a really beautiful melody.

Great memories.

Blog Day :

5101 Post No. : 17035

This date (6 july) ten years ago was 6 July 2012. That date saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6183 Sitaaron chaand se keh do Badi Bahu(1951) Movie Yippeee’d by now
6184 Mast nazar ke paimaane chhalke Taatar Ka Chor (1955) 5 songs covered out of 6

We can observe that three movies (out of six) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been Yippeee’d. That leaves us with three movies that are still eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today on 6 July 2022.

‘Pilpili Sahab’ (1954) is one of the eligible movies.

‘Pilpili Sahab’ was produced by Malika Kwatra and NS Kwatra and directed by HS Kwatra for Kwatra Films, Bombay. The movie had Agha, Shyama, Pran, Kuldeep, Sunder, Lalita Kumari, Madan, Pandit ji, Dev Kishen, Paaro, Helen, Naval, Uma Dutt, Iqbal Mishra, Mumtaz, Sant ji, Thakur, Khairaati, Mehmood, Maissey, Rajen Kapoor etc. in it.

The movie has nine songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here is the sixth song from ‘Pilpili Sahab’ to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardul Kwatra.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

नैया भँवर के बीच थी
साहिल पे आ गई
सारी बहार झूम के॰॰ए॰॰ए
महफिल पे आ गई

जिन्हें हम याद करते हैं
जिन्हें हम याद करते हैं
वही तो भूल जाते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है
आज आँसू मुसकुराते हैं
जिन्हें हम याद करते हैं

ग़मों से कोइ कह दे
मेरी दुनिया से चले जाएँ
ग़मों से कोइ कह दे
मेरी दुनिया से चले जाएँ
खुशी के सुर मिले तो
दिल के अरमां गुनगुनाते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है
आज आँसू मुसकुराते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है

मिले हैं आज वो जिनको
सितारों तक में ढूंढा है
मिले हैं आज वो जिनको
सितारों तक में ढूंढा है
हम अपनी ज़िंदगी को
हाए॰॰ए॰॰ए
हम अपनी ज़िंदगी को
उनके कदमों पर झुकाते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है
आज आँसू मुसकुराते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 166 # Missing Films of 1972 – 11#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Parivartan’ which was released in the year 1972. Like the earlier missing movies of this year 1972 this must also be one of the obscure movies of its time.

‘Parivartan’ was directed by DS Sultania for DS Pictures, Calcutta. It had Ranjit Mallick, Heena Kausar, Manisha, Sudha Shivpuri, Bhaskar Choudhury, Anoop Kumar, Ravi Ghosh, Subrat Chatterjee, Lalita Chatterjee, Mam Mukherjee, Smt. Sushila, Shekhar Chatterjee, Dyanesh Mukherjee, Rasraj Chakravarty, Shambhu Bhattacharya, Guddu, Rajiv, Hanumant Sethia, Baba Majgaonkar, Jayshree T, and others. Utpal Dutt and Jalal Agha make guest appearances in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.12.1972 with restricted viewing certificate that is ‘A’ Certificate (for adults only).

This movie has three songs. Songwriters Neeraj and Nawal have penned one song each. For remaining one song the lyricists name is not mentioned in HFGK page of this movie. Two music directors viz. Chand Pardesi and MK Pujari composed one song each and for one song again the composer’s name is not mentioned in HFGK. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Composer
01 Tan Bhi Jaley, Man Bhi Jaley, Raat Bhi Jaley Manna Dey, Hemlata Chand Pardesi
02 Roothho Naa Sarkaar Hamse Pyaar Karo Naa Kishore Kumar MK Pujari
03 Dil Se Mere Jo Tera Dil Miley Not mentioned.          –

Today’s song is written by Neeraj and sung by Manna Dey and Hemlata. I guess it must be picturised on Ranjit Mallick and Heena Kausar. Music for today’s song is composed by Chand Pardesi. With this song the movie ‘Parivartan’ makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post from movie ‘Naag Panchami’ – “Main Nadiya Ki Dhaara Baahen Teri Kinaara” to today’s movie song-post.

*Notes:

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’, ‘Hunterwaali’, ‘Lady James Bond’ and ‘Miss Chaalbaaz’ (Tingoo Agent 000) seem to be unavailable as of now.
  2. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and Hemlata. I came across this song only during the preparation of this post and had never heard it earlier. A good song to listen and only its audio is available. So far one more song from this movie sung by Kishore Kumar is also available on internet sources. However, no video or any additional information about this movie seems to be available now.

Let us now listen to the today’s song and welcome ‘Parivartan-1972’ on the blog 😊

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 09#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Mehmil’. It is one of those movies from the year 1972 which is yet to be represented on the blog.

‘Mehmil’ is directed by Vibhuti Mishra for Mitra Productions, Bombay. The list of actors includes Farah, Shiv Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Vibhuti Mishra, Indrani Dutt, Pratima Devi, Mona, Jayant Bhatt, Pankaj, Tun Tun, Shekhar Purohit, Prem Mubarak, Prem Pujari, Yunus Bihari, Sitara, Lakshmi, Jeniffer, Shareefa, Dulari, Rajkumari and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.10.1972.

This movie has five songs – four penned by Kafil Azar and one song penned by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music for this movie is composed by Sonik-Omi. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Kitna hai soona soona mehmil (Part-1) Asha Bhonsle
02 Hamen milnaa thhik nahin Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri jaan hai sona Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi
04 Kitna hai soona soona mehmil (Part-2) Omi
05 Kaash main ladki hota Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Omi and when I listen this song the very first time, I liked it very much. Omi’s singing in this song is something special that leaves one humming this song after it ends. And it grows as we listen to it more. I had earlier presented the title song of ‘Ek Khilaadi Baawan Pattey’ sung by him. It would be interesting to know how many songs he had sung in HFM so far.

Well, HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) lists the today’s song in two parts. However, on all sources only this Omi version is available. Though some sources give the link with the name of singer Asha Bhonsle but have uploaded the same song sung by Omi. I tried to locate the female version but could not find it so far. Till then we will enjoy this song in the voice of Omi. We will add the female version to today’s post if it is made available later.

The videos of the songs of ‘Mehmil’ are also not available and neither is the movie available online. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Meaning of ‘Mehmil’ as taken from Rekhta.org

(maḥmil n. of place fr ‘to bear, carry,’ c.)

(A maḥmil (n. of place fr ‘to bear, carry,’ &c.), s.m. That by which anything is supported, that in (or on) which anything is borne; that which carries the double load of a camel, a camel’s saddle; a camel litter or dorser (in which women travel).

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 after adding the today’s movie and till the today’s movie alphabetically. Today’s movie is the 76th in this alphabetical list.
Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Maanavta’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Tere Vishal Hriday Ne Paai, Saaton Saagar KI Gehraai“.

*Notes:

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now.
  2. The film ‘Kavi Sammelan’ was a presentation of poetry by selected iconic poets of our country, of that time.
  3. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

Let us now listen to the today’s song. . .

 

Song – Kitna Hai Soona Soona Mehmil Hamaara Re (Mehmil) (1972) Singer – Omi, Lyrics – Kafil Azar, MD – Sonik Omi

Lyrics

kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re ae

kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re
aa jaaye saathi koyi ban ke sahaara re ae
aa jaaye saathi koi
ban ke sahaara re
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

sapnon ka dil mein mela hai ae
phir bhi ye dil akela hai
ho koi hamsafar to ho miley bhola bhaala
le le jo haath haathon mein ae
jaadu ho jiski baaton mein
ke meri nazar ko o lage wo niraala
dekhe zamaana usey itna ho pyaara re ae
aa jaaye saathi ee koi
ban ke sahaara re
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re ae
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

aaya thha ban ke saathi jo o
nikla ajeeb raahi wo
ho mujhe kya samajh ke ae
milaa thha wo jhoothha
chheda jo main afsaana aa
us ko banaaya deewaana
o zara door chalke ae mujh se wo roothha
samjha na baatein meri
haaye bechaara re ae
aaya thha saathi ee koi
ban ke sahaara re ae
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

सपनों का दिल में मेला है
फिर भी ये दिल अकेला है
हो कोई हमसफर तो हो मिले भोला भाला
ले ले जो हाथ हाथों में
जादू हो जिसकी बातों में

देखे ज़माना उसे इतना हो प्यारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

आया था बनके साथी जो

हो मुझे क्या समझ के
मिला था वो झूठा
छेड़ा जो मैंने अफसाना
उसको बनाया दीवाना
ज़रा दूर चल के मुझसे वो रूठा
समझा ना बातें मेरी
हाए बेचारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

From the above table we can see that the songs for the very first movie of 1972 are so far not available. This movie is ‘Aakraant’.

Thereafter the fifth movie ‘Achchhaa Buraa’ has been introduced by us on the blog on 07.01.2022 and that takes us to next missing movie on the blog which is ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’. This movie is the seventeenth movie in this list alphabetically. I could not find the songs for this movie ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’ and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

That brings us to the next movie which is ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’. Today we introduce this movie from 1972 . I was not earlier aware of the songs of this movie and so far listened this today’s song while noting it down only.

Today’s movie ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’ was directed by Umesh Mathur for Vasant Neerja Pictures, Bombay. The star cast of the film includes Anjana, Dheeraj Kumar, Sulochana, Sujata, Manvendra Chitnis, Roopali, Neelam, Pal Sharma, Radheshyam, Satyajit, Mubarak, Pardesi, Ved Bhushan, Nandu Rathi, Indira Bansal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Dhoomal, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.03.1972.

This movie has six songs, and all are written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music for this movie is composed by Rajan Pal. His name is new for me. From the  HFGK listings, it appears that this is the only film for which he has provided the music. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on him.

The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

S. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Jo tum chaahte ho tumhen bhool jaayen Suman Kalyanpur
02 Rangeen thha mera pyaar abhi kal ki baat hai Yash Trikha
03 Sun sun sun o gulaab ki kali Mahendra Kapoor, Krishna Kalle, Yash Trikha.

05 Suno ek baat sanam, man tora ishq Asha Bhonsle
06 O dharti ke chaand, laal mere so jaa Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur, and it is a nice song to listen.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and picturisation of the songs from this movie.

Let us now listen to the today’s song of which only the audio is available …

With this song the movie ‘Bahaaro Phool Barsaao’ makes its debut on the blog 😊

Song – Jo Tum Chaahte Ho Tumhen Bhool Jaayen (Bahaaro Phool Barsaao) (1972) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Rajan Pal

Lyrics

tumhen bhool jaayen ae

जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तो यादों से कह दो के
वो भी ना आयें
जो तुम चाहते हो

जहां मिल के गाये थे

जहां मिल के गाये थे

मिटे हम तो क्या है
सदा खुश रहो तुम
मिटे हम तो क्या है
सदा खुश रहो तुम
हमारे लबों पर
यही हैं दुआएं
तो यादों से कह दो के
वो भी ना आयें
जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ

4680 Post No. : 16360

This post is coming two days late. Talat Sb’s anniversary of passing away was two days ago (9th May). In preparation and delayed, this post remembers Talat Sb, the velvet voiced wonder who is one of the mainstays of the fond memories of the golden age of Hindi film  music – an era when melody was the queen.

A rare and opportune gathering of talented stars, singers, music makers and writers once came together at the coordinates of a place called Bombay (now Mumbai).  Fortune has a timing of its own, and blessed are those who witnessed this gathering, and also those who continue to enjoy their creations and their histrionics. An august assembly that pulled together in 1940s, it continued gathering momentum along with the fervor of the newly independent India.

But as all good things, this assembly waned and started to fade away after three decades of having held spellbound a young nation, with a full spectrum of emotional flavors. The resonance of those times still rings in the ears and flows with the wind and water of this land. The echoes still entertain, still charm and engross multiple generations of music lovers.

Introduction to Talat Sb is not necessary. But the memories are. And more importantly, it is the celebration of the memories that is essential. Celebrities and performers abound in every generation, every century. But the history remembers only them who are remembered by later generations.

Searching for a song from his earlier films, I chanced to find this one which has not yet been posted on our blog. The film is ‘Ratnadeep’ from 1952. As I check the lists, I find that the film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Of these, 5 songs are already showcased on our blog. Talat Sb has sung three songs for this film. Two are duets with Geeta Dutt, and one solo. The two duets are already present here. I bring on the solo song of Talat Sb today.

The film ‘Ratnadeep’ is a production of Chitramaya, Calcutta (now Kolkata) and is produced and directed by Debaki Kumar Bose.  The film is based on the famous novel of same name by Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay (1873-1932). Prabhat Kumar was a barrister by profession and later a professor of law at University of Calcutta. He started writing while still studying at school, and his poems were published in Bangla magazines. He became famous for his short stories which looked at life using a light-hearted lens. As an author he has published more than 100 short stories and 14 novels. ‘Ratnadeep’ is the most well known of his novels.

The cast of actors of this film is listed as Anuva Gupta, Manju Dey, Molina Devi, Chhaya Devi, Tangamani, Harini, Bakul Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Pahadi Sanyal, Niteesh Mukherji, Tulsi Chakravarty, Kamal Mishra, Raj Kumar Soni, Sudheer  Chakraborty, Gokul Mukherji and Gauri Shankar.

Music for this film is composed by Robin Chatterji. Two songs of this film are traditional verses, one by Vidyapati and another by Meerabai. The remaining six songs have been penned by Pt Madhur and Pran Mahendra. However, the sharing of songs between these two lyricists is not known. So the tag for lyricist is indicated as ‘Unattributed’.

This is a true vintage Talat song – the perfect voice picked by the music director to render it. The words in the song tells about unfulfilled love, expressing aspirations and longing for things that could have been. The words are lovely, and the rendition by Talat Sb touches the strings of the heart inside.

Listen and enjoy this lesser known, lesser heard wonderful song of Talat Sb.

 

Song – Agar Dil Ke Taaron Pe Main Chhed Sakta (Ratnadeep) (1952) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Robin Chatterjee

Lyrics

agar dil ke taaron pe
main chhed sakta
nai zindagi ka naya sa taraana
agar dil ke taaron pe

na manzil ki chaahat
mere dil mein hoti
na manzil ki chaahat
mere dil mein hoti
meri pyaas ulfat ke
naghmon mein khoti
mere naqsh e paa hi
mere naqsh e paa hi
bataate thikaana
agar dil ke taaron pe

main lehron ke haa..aathon mein
patwaar de kar
jo baste hain dil mein
unhen saath le kar
bahut door saahil se
le jaata kashti
na wo rehte wo
aur na main meri hasti
na wo rehte wo
aur na main meri hasti
magar haa..aaye
adhoora rahega apna fasaana
nai zindagi ka naya sa taraana
nai zindagi ka naya sa taraana
agar dil ke taaron pe

अगर दिल के तारों पे
मैं छेड़ सकता
नई ज़िंदगी का नया सा तराना
अगर दिल के तारों पे

ना मंज़िल की चाहत
मेरे दिल में होती
ना मंज़िल की चाहत
मेरे दिल में होती
मेरी प्यास उलफत के
नग़मों में खोती
मेरे नक़्श ए पा ही
मेरे नक़्श ए पा ही
बताते ठिकाना
अगर दिल के तारों पे

मैं लहरों के हा॰॰थों में
पतवार दे कर
जो बसते हैं दिल में
उन्हें साथ लेकर
बहुत दूर साहिल से
ले जाता कश्ती
ना वो रहते वो
और ना मैं मेरी हस्ती
ना वो रहते वो
और ना मैं मेरी हस्ती
मगर हा॰॰य
अधूरा रहेगा अपना फसाना
नई ज़िंदगी का नया सा तराना
नई ज़िंदगी का नया सा तराना
अगर दिल के तारों पे

Missing Films of 1960s – 115
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Frankly, I never really thought I would be posting a song for this most obscure of films. The name ‘Flying Horse’, with the accompanying information conspicuous for being so frugally available, kind of put this film near the bottom of the list with the likes of ‘Flight to Assam’ and ‘Mahavat’ (both from 1961), for which the expectation for traceability is kind of low enough to be non-existent.

So consider my surprise, and excitement of course, as I get a message from our Sadanand ji, about 10-12 days ago, with a link to this song, with the details claiming it to be one of the songs of this heretofore wonderfully extinct film. I played the song, I checked out the details – it all seemed to match. The song is listed in Geet Kosh as belonging to this film. This in my opinion, would constitute one of the rarest of the rare finds.

My interest in this song was further heightened, as I read the latter part of Sadanand ji’s message. First part of that dampening effect came when I read further to find that this song, although clearly listed for this film in the Geet Kosh, well, it also appears in the listing of another film. Further inputs from Sadanand ji, and more checking through the Geet Kosh reveals that there is another film titled ‘Saalgirah’, which also includes this song. And the fact that makes this scenario more interesting, as well as intriguing is, that ‘Saalgirah’ is listed as one of the unreleased films from the 1950s. As I tried to search for more info, my efforts were directed towards finding out what would be the common set of information for the two films, so as to establish some link between the two. A little digging revealed that there is only one common link between the two films, and that is the music director. That, in my mind, would serve to be an important linkage that would explain as well as support the scenario. The song would have been earlier prepared and recorded for the film ‘Saalgirah’, but then for whatever reason, the film was shelved. The tunes created would then become intellectual property either of the producer or the music director, depend on the understanding between the two.

Come 1963, and the film ‘Flying Horse’ – the music director chooses to use at least four of the songs prepared for the earlier unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’. So this becomes one of the cases of songs meant for one movie, but used in another movie. And here is an additional piece of information that makes the scenario more interesting. The Geet Kosh listing for the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’ shows that two gramophone records were published for the film, containing 4 of the 5 five songs listed for this unreleased film. Now this publication went on to ensure that the four songs of this film, continued to be available, although the film itself was never completed and released.

As I reviewed the Geet Kosh entries for ‘Flying Horse’, I found that no  gramophone record nos. are listed for it. Presumably then, the two records and four songs originally recorded for ‘Saalgirah’ are likely the only recordings available for these songs. And so with a little agreeable extrapolation, based on the details as contained in Geet Kosh, I am rightly announcing the uncovering of the songs of this rare and obscure film.

And so here we go. The 1963 film ‘Flying Horse’ is directed by Trimurty for the banner of Vishwakala Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors is listed as Krishna Kumari, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Kesari, Ameerbai Karnataki, Shri Bhagwan, Sudha, Madhumati, Omi, Khanna, Pandit Iqbal, Master Mohan, and RS Dubey. It is interesting to note a few familiar names in this cast of actors.

There are seven songs listed for this film. Interestingly, the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’ has only five songs listed. The common denominator is the four songs that were published on gramophone records. The common factor of the music director across the two films also has a little variation. The name of the MD for ‘Saalgirah’ is listed as H Vijay. And the name of MD for ‘Flying Horse’ is listed as Vijay Honawar. Unless this is a coincidence of a superlative order, I would surmise that the two are the same person. Moreover the wordings of the titles of the four songs match exactly. And so does partially, the name of the lyricists. In the film ‘Saalgirah’ two of the four songs are credited to Madhuraj, one song to Munshi Khanjar, and one song to VR Sharma. In the case of ‘Flying Horse’, all the four songs are credited to Madhukar. It is known fact that Madhuraj is the pseudonym used on occasion by the poet Madhukar Rajasthani. And so does match the name of the lyricist also. The unexplained part that remains is why Madhukar Rajasthani is credited with two extra songs, that have been earlier credited to other lyricists. This will need research on available material like film information booklets etc. I cannot comment on this right now.

The singer’s name is listed in the details of the earlier unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’. The singer for this song is Aashima Bannerji. The song itself is a very sad song of unfulfilled love – an expression that borders on a complete resignation to the vagaries of fate.

So, with some collation of available data, part extrapolation, and part tongue-in-cheek gumption, I present here this song which can be termed as a very rare find. Actually, the uploader of this song on YouTube has probably surmised similar conclusions, and has posted this song for the film ‘Flying Horse’. Another fact that Sadanand ji points out is important, this song was played on Radio Ceylon (now Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation 🙂 ) sometimes during 2019, albeit that announcement was for the unreleased film ‘Saalgirah’.

This series of missing films of 1960s, which has showcased 114 films already, over a span of – oh goodness – now almost five years, continues to be alive. In fact in the interim months since the previous two episodes was published in July 2019 and Jan 2020, I have received information input about the availability of songs of a few more films. That is heartening news, and the series is going to be alive for some more episodes. Watch this space for more postings in this series.

Song – Dheere Dheere Jal Re Manwa  (Flying Horse) (1963) Singer – Aashima Bannerji, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vijay Honawar

Lyrics 

aaa aaa aaa aaa
aaa aaa aaa aaa

dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
nainon mein raat dhal rahi
duniya rahi badal re manwa
dheere dheere jal

gaaun kya mann ki veentee
gaaun kya mann ki veentee
geet adhure pyaar ke
geet adhure pyaar ke
praanon mein bkali bhari
praanon mein bkali bhari
aansoo rahe nikal re manwa
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal

jeevan ki shaam ho chuki
jeevan ki shaam ho chuki
aasha ki jyot bujh rahi
aasha ki jyot bujh rahi
mil na sakungi tumse main
mil na sakungi tumse main
sapne rahe machal re manwa
dheere dheere jal re manwa
dheere dheere jal
nainon mein raat dhal rahi
duniya rahi badal re manwa
dheere dheere jal

Today I am presenting a beautiful song from the movie ‘Arpan-1983’. The song is sung by Anwar and as I have mentioned in my post on Anwar I like this song very much.

‘Arpan-1983’ was one of the best musical scores of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I like all songs of this movie and I remember it were very popular then. Though the top three songs in that year’s (1983) annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ were from ‘Souten-1983’ – 01 song and ‘Nikaah-1983’-02 songs respectively at no.1,2 & 3.

However, some of the best music for that year came from Laxmikant-Pyarelal, while Bappi Lahiri and R.D. Burman also gave some of their best musical scores in the same year.

They composed music for as many as twelve movies released in 1983 and the songs from ‘Hero-1983’ released at the end of 1983 ruled the charts in next year i.e. in 1984 and its song ‘tu mera jaanu hai’ ranked at no.1 of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1984.

Two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier (and even if we consider the second song posted from this movie which was on 28.01.2010, this movie is completing ‘ten years’ run on the blog and still to be ‘Yippeeee’ed 😊

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

While Jeetendra is lip-syncing in Anwar’s voice, Parveen Babi, Reena Roy, Raj Babbar and others are also present in the picturization of this song.

1982-83 was my ‘10th standard – educational year’ so I was not supposed to watch many movies in that year. But I remember after appearing the Board exams and exams of my younger brothers we get to watch many movies thereafter. In between, cricket was going on as usual and there was ‘World Cup 1983 win’ too 😊

But this movie ‘Arpan-1983’ still remains to be watched for me and as such I cannot say much about it, though I loved its songs very much. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Usually one chooses songs full of happiness and celebration for these types of occasions to celebrate, but as usual, I choose this haunting song, to celebrate. 🙂

The song is from the 1983 film ‘Sansani – The Sensation’. I have watched this movie one late night for the sake of this haunting song by Asha Bhosle. The movie was just a masala / murder mystery, where at the end the noble characters like Dr. Shriram Lagoo and Jayashree Gadkar turn out to be characters with grey shades. If you are a die-hard fan of Hindi movies of  70`s and early 80`s like me, you may enjoy this  pot-boiler, but watch the movie at your own risk. 🙂

But listen to this song, you may like it audio-wise.

This is an obscure mystery movie produced by Kavita Seth, who is also billed in the credits as “KAVITA – Introducing” as an actress. She is one of the principal lady characters in the movie. She appears wearing a white saree, roaming in the graveyards, and crying for her beloved Shailendra Singh (the playback singer, who got billing as “Friendly Appearance”). Shailendra Singh appears only at the climax, and also in a photograph in front of which the actress cries and sings this haunting song. But he did not get a playback singing chance, which is his original forte.

There is some confusion about the year of release of this movie, LP image of this movie shows the year 1979, censor certificate clearly shows the date 23-6-1983. According to HFGK-6, 1983 is the release of this movie.

The movie was “Dedicated to Late Director Irshad Afzal”, (I guess before the release of the movie the director must have passed away). The movie was produced under the banner of Panorama Pictures. The producer of the movie is Kavita Seth, who also makes her acting debut with this movie. The director’s name is mentioned differently in different sites as Irshad / Irshad Afzal / A Irshad.

The star cast of the movie includes Vinod mehra, Bindiya Goswami, Prem Chopra, Dr Shriram Lagoo, Shailendra Singh (Special Appearance), Kavita (Introducing), Jagdeep, Jayashree T, Jayashree Gadkar, Keshto Mukherjee, Jagdish Raj, Coca Cola, TP Jain, Ali Masood, Nilima, Meena T, Raj Kishore, Amal Sen, M Baig, Amarnath, Dutta Bhatt, Viraj, Gopal, Dina Pathak, Gulshan Grover, Viju Khote etc.

Songs of this film are written by Irshad (who was also the director). Music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. It has been mentioned in the credit sequences of the movie that the assistants to music director are Kersi Lord and Uttam Singh. These two genius composers cum arrangers also contributed to the musical score of this movie to a great extent. Kersi Lord has also done a lot of work with RD Burman.

The musical compositions of the movie are sung by playback singers like Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Bhupender, Varsha Bhosle, and Hemant Bhosle. This movies has got following sound tracks

  1. Asha Bhosle : Phir Teri Yaad
  2. Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar, Bhupinder & Varsha Bhosle : Patthar Ka Hai Sanam
  3. Asha Bhosle, Hemant Bhosle & Chorus : Sansanikhez Koi Baat
  4. Asha Bhosle, Varsha Bhosle : Saqiya Tu Koi
  5. Asha Bhosle, Amit Kumar : Ab Kahaan Jayenge Hum (Happy)
  6. Amit Kumar : Ab Kahaan Jayenge Hum (Sad)
  7. Hemant Bhosle : Theme music

Records of the movie were issued by The Gramophone Company of India Ltd. (aka His Master`s Voice). The movie was shot at outdoor locations of Madras, Bangalore, and Tamilnadu.

On screen this song has been divided into 3 parts. The first stanza features Dina Pathak, Shailendra Singh (i.e. appears in a photograph) and Kavita Seth aka Kavita . The 2nd stanza features Kavita Seth, Dr.Sriram Lagoo, and Vinod Mehra. And the 3rd stanza features Kavita Seth, Vinod Mehra and Jayashree Gadkar.

About the Music Director: Hemant Bhosle is the late son of Asha Bhosle. He passed away on September 28th of 2015. I like his musical compositions of the songs of ‘Taxi Taxie’ (1977). Given below is an incomplete filmography for him. If at all any additions or deletions are there in this regard, please let me know.

  • Taxi-Taxie (Polydor-1977)
  • Jadu Tona (Polydor-1977)
  • Anpadh (Polydor-1978)
  • Damaad (Polydor-1978)
  • Sansani (HMV-1980/Irshad)
  • Sweety (Music India-1980)
  • Nazrana Pyar Ka (Polydor-1980)
  • Shradhanjali (HMV-1981/Anjan)
  • Barrister (HMV-1982/Yogesh)
  • Teri Meri Kahani (TV Movie 1982/Anjaan,B.R.Chopra)
  • Doosra Kinara (1982)
  • Beta (1982/HMV/Anjaan)
  • Bandhan Kachchey Dhaagon Ka (HMV-1983)
  • Raja Jogi (1983)
  • Bachchon Ka Khel (1983/Gulshan Bawra)
  • Dharti Akash (TV Movie 1983)
  • Dharam Shatru (T-series,Super-1985/1988)
  • Bhaago Bhoot Aaya (1985)
  • Aakhiri Sanghursh (1987/1997)

Hemant Bhosle also provided music for some Marathi songs.

About the Lyricist Irshad:  I searched for lyricist Irshad`s other works, but got confused with Irshad who has connection with the Kishore Kumar camp, and has written songs for films such as ‘Door Ka Rahi’ (1971 – which has the famous song “Beqaraar Dil, Tu Gaaye Jaa”), ‘Badhti Ka Naam Dhadi’ (1974) ‘Shabaash Daddy’ (1978) and ‘Chalti Ka Naam Zindagi’ (1982). Irshad also written songs for other movies like ‘Naag Pooja’ (1971), ‘Pattharon Ka Shaher’ (1972) – both for Usha Khanna. Also for ‘Alibaba’ (1976) – Dara Singh starrer with Hansraj Behl as the music director.

I got further confused when I watched the movie credit sequences which displays the photo with garland and agarbatti and lines like “Dedicated to our beloved director – Irshad Afzal”, and further in the credits – “Lyrics, written and directed by IRSHAD”.

I doubt whether all the above Irshads are one and the same. I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help clarify this possible ‘same name confusion’.

One of the comments related to the song in some site is as follows: “Phir Teri Yaad” is a completely mental slice of Indian psych/funk”. I failed to understand this comment, I request someone to please elaborate about this comment.

I will conclude my endless banter here 🙂

Congratulations and best wishes to our blog on its MEGA CELEBRATION. I love everything and everyone related to our blog. Visiting and reading the blog posts gives me immense joy.

Blog Day : 3902 Post No. : 14954

 

‘Bobby’ – a once in a life time sojourn. Smitten by this film, youngsters in any age will not be awed by any other drama of romance.

‘Bobby’ – the heart beat of a generation. Murmurs of that heartbeat continue to be alive decades after. Memories of that first love still makes the blood race through the veins, just as if that primal experience is still happening – for the first time.

‘Bobby’ – never before, and never after – was a story of adolescent love, ever presented with such an alluring composure, and such a charismatic style.

‘Bobby’ – open that page even today, and the freshness of fragrance of that first touch, that first embrace, that first kiss – under a row of Gulmohar trees in full bloom, still has the thump to pummel you off your feet. The ‘flame of the forest’ is ablaze with a riot of red. And so are the raging emotions within – not just the star crossed lovers on screen – it is me too, still floundering and floating in those seminal sensations of love – the moment frozen in time and age, forever. Check out the lover’s tryst at the swimming pool. Every other experience of passionate emotions pales into insignificance in the face of this compelling, electric attraction.

‘Bobby’ – the enduring Perfect Storm – nothing else comes close to capturing that first pubescent surge of hormones – the heart’s first introduction to the fascinating enthrallment of passion and love.

‘Bobby’ – the first steps into the adventures of delight, when the self desires to make space for another for the first time, savoring the first unfamiliar ecstasies of love.

‘Bobby’ – a film, a name, and a girl in a white frock with grey dots and a red piping – standing next to the entrance, near the golden statue of a maiden carrying a pot of water, quenching the thirst of many kinds; and the strains of music that play on that first sighting – “Jeena Yahaan Marna Yahaan, Is Ke Siwa Jaana Kahaan”. As always, the master of melodramatic presentation, RK chose this oh so appropriate music to play when this simple young girl made her first presence on the screen, and into the hearts of million young men – yes – Is Ke Siwa Jaana Kahaan. . .

I have written before about my many crushes on many a beauty of the silver screen. But this was / is the first time I really fell in love. Never heard of this girl before. Dimple Kapadia – no background in films, no links in the industry – and one day, she is just there, standing near the entrance, next to that golden statue. It was just a moment – and she took my heart away. That was just yesterday, but it seems as if an age has passed, and an entire life story of love has been played out. And yet, frozen in time, it still is 1973, and Bobby and me – forever.

As far as I can remember, no other film, no other director had, till that time, tried to tackle the subject of adolescent romance. Yes, there have been many films about childhood friendships that blossom out into love and romance when the protagonists are adults. College going students – yes, many films that have dealt with college romance. The one drawback of these tales was – the lead pair never did look like college students. Senior actors in their thirties, forties and even fifties, attempting to play romantic leads on a college campus. All is well till the movie plays, but once done, the memories remain of the oversize actors trying to fit into very young shoes.

Bobby was different. Bobby was homegrown fresh, young, as young can be. Dimple – all of sixteen years when she stepped into this role. Rishi, albeit not so young, was 21. But with his cupcake Johnson baby looks, he charmed his way into the hearts of a million girls. Take away all the aesthetics, and the story is as old as the ruins of Ranjeet Studios – boy from rich family meets girl from family not of the same social status, they fall in love, and the entire world around them crumbles down upon them. Coming all the way from days of Parsi theatre and silent cinema, this tale has been played over and over again, umpteen times.

And then, after seven decades or so, this tale once again exploded on to the screens, and ignited a whole generation of teenagers – a fire that has not been doused since then. It was not the melodrama that worked; it was, somewhat maybe, the music that worked; it was not the apparently artificial ambience of the Nath affluence – the rich side of the tussle; it was not the exaggerated and affected brash and boisterous Braganza who wears the same undersized suit to every formal scene in the film, (gosh, even the not so affluent have a proper dress sense), and the supporting roles – mother, nanny, friends, society girls, mild brained proposal for making a business alliance – in short, there was nothing in the film that was not done before, even by RK himself, nothing that was new for the cinema screen and for the audiences. What turned out to the winner was the lead pair – two unknown faces whose on screen chemistry tugged at the strings of the heart of the audience, and turned the rest of the oft repeated paraphernalia around them into a very convincing, charming, fascinating tale.

And between the two of them, Bobby comes up trumps to the histrionics of Raja. The film is Bobby, and Bobby all the way. Making innocence and glamour look oh so easy, the images in the mind are forever now – the coy and shy little girl in a frock, who is afraid to step into the lavish party, keeps standing at the entrance; the naïve and innocent little girl, telling about the ‘dhuk-dhuki’ in her heart when she see him; the troubled and broken lady, her heart asunder albeit from a misunderstood conversation, as she too looking on with pleading eyes, but unable to take a step towards him; the screaming pleading young woman, beseeching her grandmother not to lock her up, as Josef physically pulls her away and carries her upstairs at the behest of an agonized but very firm Mrs. Braganza. . . and many more. The images keep playing in the mind. And the film is all about this teen aged girl who is so intensely convinced about her love – you can see it in her face as she pleads with her grandmother – that she will die if separated from Raja; and sitting in the audience seats, one is so starkly convinced that she will, that there are tears streaming and the body muscles want to jump on to the screen and beat the hell out of Josef.

Oh Bobby, Bobby, Bobby – she pulled up a storm, and then – she just walked away. In a manner of speaking, it is good that she did. The legend and the aura of Bobby remained constant, unremitting . . . verily to become perpetual. The Dimple that we see from a decade later is a very different avatar. The memories, the marvel, the legend of Bobby, has remained intact. Nobody could quite portray the coy innocence and purity of heart, as we see Bobby on the screen and in the dreams. And that is very well for me – it is 1973, and Bobby, forever.

I am both sad and glad to get the opportunity for announcing the Yippeee-dom status for this film. After a 10 years travel, finally all the songs of this film are now present on the blog. 🙂  And sad, because we won’t be discussing this Bobby again in any future post. 😦

Eight songs, eight wonderful songs keeping alive the RK tradition for the best in music. The songs created quite a ripple when released, and over the decades, have remained popular with every new generation of teenagers, who simply love the ideas of simple thoughts as in “Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai” and “Hum Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Hon”. 🙂 The seven songs posted earlier happened in the following sequence.

 

1 Main Shaayar To Nahin 869 10-Mar-09
2 Ankhiyon Ko Rahne De 998 30-Mar-09
3 Mujhe Kuchh Kehna Hai 5708 30-Mar-12
4 Jhoothh Bole Kauwwaa Kaate Kaale Kawwe Se Dariyo 13319 8-Jun-17
5 Ham Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Hon Aur Chaabhi Kho Jaaye 14732 3-Nov-18
6 Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo, Bulle Shaa Ye Kehta 14918 10-Mar-19
7 Na Chaahoon Sona Chaandi 14940 20-Mar-19

 

A journey that started 10 years ago, culminates today, with the posting of this fabulous and scintillating party song that carries many layers of silent conversations within itself. We are more than two third of the way into the movie. Nath and Braganza have fallen out big time, with the belligerent Braganza promising all sorts of consequences if Nath’s son is seen anywhere close to his daughter. Bobby is sent off to Goa – a la “Akhiyon Ko Rahne De Akhiyon Ke Aas Paas“. Raja is confined and under watch. New Year eve is nigh. The business driven Nath makes a business driven decision to announce the engagement of his son with the daughter of Mr. Sharma, one of his business associates. No matter that the lady chosen is somewhat retarded, and much below her actual age in mental capacity. Not being able to rebel and speak his mind, unable to confront his father, Raja is in a deadly dilemma about his life.

The party happens. The song happens. And Raja gets the answer for his life. As I said, the song has multiple layers of silent conversations happening. The party and the celebration is one. The parents are agog with delight of having struck two birds with one stone – made a major business gain, and tied down a wayward son into household chains. The joy of Nikki (Farida Jalal) is on a different high – she is getting married into another rich family. Then the song and the performance itself – that speaks of the travesty of love and lovers. Woe becomes he who is wretched enough to be entangled in a snare of love.

And there is the mind of Raja – bewildered, afraid, not believing what is going on around him. His insides are in a shamble, his heart is in agony, and all his parents can think of is an alliance for him, and a grand new year party. A look at him, his lost expressions in the midst of so much dance and revelry. And one is reminded of another RK song –

dhakke pe dhakka, reley pe relaa
hai bheed itni, par dil akela
par dil akela

And the scenario takes you back across two decades of musical and cinematic articulation – the troubled expressions of the face of Raja feeling hopelessly lost amidst the ongoing celebration, threading back to the joker singing at the Bombay carnival (‘Mera Naam Joker’, 1970), leading you back one more layer, to the bumbling hobo, new to the big town, and completely lost in its hustle bustle (‘Shri 420’, 1955). When I see that image, that look on Rishi Kapoor’s face during this party song, my mind goes back these two steps to more of RK’s wonder illustrations.

And then, we have this covert conversation happening between the dancer and the teenager with a troubled mind. The dancer is singing for him, without him realizing it so, at the beginning. In the first stanza, the dancer explains to Raja, the vagaries of love one has to endure. Falling in love does not mean just losing your heart to someone – actually one loses everything in life, one’s entire world and even one’s happiness. Then the dancer goes on to explain the time of adolescence – and this one line in this song is so intensely killing –

ye ek saal
bachpan aur jawaani ke beech ka
bada bura hota hai

And in this one liner, the lyricist has said everything that one needs to be said for the agonies of coming of age. This time of transition and hormonal changes bring in awarenesses that didn’t exist in the mind before. And these awarenesses are confusing, troubling and at times frightening. The call of the dancer’s voice now catches Raja’s attention – who realizes that this song is being sung for him. And in the second stanza, the dancer now reveals an answer. The seed is planted, the way is shown, and the contemplation of an elopement is initiated –

bacha ke aa..aankh
panchhi pinjra le ke ud jaaye to. . .

Lovely choreography here. For a moment, Raja is encircled by other dancers with frightening masks, as if he is caged inside a prison of fear, and the next instant, the dancer is floating away like a bird flying. And the words for the second stanza commence. Just pause and watch again this small magical interlude segment.

The third stanza of this song appears separately and a little later in the film (and is inserted as Part II in the lyrics below). Raja has run away from home, reached the place in Goa where Bobby is confined with her grandmother. He pleads to be allowed to meet, and to be permitted to be married. Grandma locks him up also, and sends message to Bombay. In the night, Raja manages to escape, gets in to Bobby’s room, and now they both flee on the mobike. The third stanza plays now. The burden of this stanza says that this incurable malady of love is under no one’s control, no matter how formidable a learned person (jogi – one who can control the senses and the mind) or how skilled a snake charmer might one be. A snake charmer is supposed to have power to control any snake. The lyrics say that the serpents of love are not even in their control.

The words in the song, the choreography, the covert exchanges happening between the dancer and the teenager – oh so well designed and executed. There is another layer of conversation that gets revealed. Just watch the expressions and try to visualize the mind of the young man as the song progresses. He is troubled, he is lost, he is incensed by the apparent sarcasm that the dancer is singing. And then he catches on. The message of being trapped “Ae. . .  Phansaa” transforms from his original thoughts that he played the game of hearts and lost and got trapped in this pining pain of love. But when Nikki joins the party, and the dancer points out yet once again “Ae. . .  Phansaa” he realizes – not earlier as he was thinking, but the entrapment is happening now, with the new proposed alliance for him. One begins to see a glimmer of understanding dawn in his eyes and his expressions. He is now listening more carefully. And when the second stanza is in progress, one can clearly make out that now he is fully in sync with the dancer, and her words, and the covert messages that she is communicating. And when the words for flying away with the pinjra are aired, the young man is all attention, slowly one feels the mind moving towards a new resolve, a new plan. At the end of this stanza, there is a very brief, but very meaningful pause, a wink, and a twist smile – almost as if saying – ‘Go’. In the film, the next thing we see is the mother, with letter in her hand, announcing with a scream that her son has run away – and the party has not yet ended. And the next thing we see is the young man and the vroooom of the Rajdoot GTS bike.

And I would like to talk about the dancer now, saving that for the last. In my mind, probably the best dance performance by Aruna Irani, across her career. The music is very fast paced, the movements are very energetic, and true to the RK traditions, the woman in her is so vividly and so sensitively, and sensuously presented. It is such a treat to watch this performance. I have lost the count of times that I have replayed this video in the past couple of days as I work to complete this write up. A superlative performance indeed, by her. Her expressions exhibit how much she is enjoying this herself. And very clearly, she is giving everything to this song. The sequences of steps, the movements – wonderfully choreographed and so expressively delivered by her.

The film credits do not include the name of the dance director, but after some digging, I am able to locate the name. The dance director in this film is Sohanlal, of Madras (now Chennai). It is tons of years ago, but I remember having met him in Madras. There was a brief period of time when I was in Madras on a job assignment. And one of my aunts, who stayed in Madras – her family was a tenant in the bungalow of Sohanlal, somewhere in Adyar area. I used to visit my aunt’s family almost on a weekly basis. And on a couple of occasions I even sat in the studio where Sohanlal ji was instructing students for practice.

Back to Aruna Irani. She has a brief but a significant role in the film. The misunderstanding that is caused between the young lovers, inadvertently, she is in the middle of it. In all her scenes, she looks so extremely charming and ravishing. And always on the dot with her presence and dialogue delivery.  A short and a very sweet performance. Of course with this dance as her best one that I can remember.

And so, the last of Bobby songs is now posted. We announce the addition of this film to the list of Yippeee’d films on our blog. Maybe, I won’t be writing any more about this film. But that is not to say that I do not have more to say about the film, and about Bobby – my first love. That is going to remain with me forever. Yes, it is 1973. . . forever.

The film is a benchmark for stories of young romance, that have been told, and as well for the stories that still have to be told. But the legend of ‘Bobby’ will endure.

The songs that have given idioms that have crept into the language of this subcontinent, be it “. . . pyaar mein sauda nahin”, or “. . . par pyaar bhara dil kabhi na todo, is dil mein dilbar rehta”, or even the simple expression that says “. . . mujhe kuchh kehna hai”. And yes, the ice breaker as one attempts to attract the attention of a lady – “main shaayar to nahin. . .”.

And thus I close this post with the reiteration – an expression for all who are always young in the heart. . .

“If you ever have been in love, this film is for you. . .”

bade bade jogi saperon se bas mein nahin
hota hai
us ne liya bairaag
jag se bhaag
ke lagi aag

naaginon ne jise dasaa
dasaa
dasaa
ha ha ha ha ha
