Blog Day :

5053 Post No. : 16967

In the beginning years of this millennium, we among the last dwellers of last millennium, were kept mesmerized with old Hindi film songs.  This was a willing intoxication, which made it possible to deal all difficulties, happiness, sadness, tragedies etc. that life chose to throw at us.   Often the songs that played randomly in a collection of songs playing on computer would become a subject of discussion.  Once, a close friend said she like this song by Mohammed Rafi Sb a lot:

baa-hosh-o-hawaas mein deewaanaa
ye aaj waseeyat kartaa hoon
ye dil ye jaan mile tumko
main tumse muhabbat kartaa hoon

This song from the film ‘Night In London’ (1967) is posted here.

Another colleague/friend once spoke of this song from ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ (1966) – “Mere Dushman Tu Meri Dosti Ko Tarse“. Now this song is very interesting in its lyrics/poetry which is actually cursing the beloved.  Total and full of ‘bad-duaa’ ie ill wishing – it is to be seen to be believed, what all the poet is wishing on his beloved friend.

mere dil se sitamgar toone achchi dillagi ki hai
ke banke dost apne doston se dushmani ki hai

mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse
mujhe gham dene waale tu khushi ko tarse

 tu phool bane patjhad kaa, tujh pe bahaar na aaye kabhi
meri hi tarah tu tadpe tujhko qaraar na aaye kabhi
jiye tu is tarah ke zindagi ko tarse

itnaa to asar kar jaayen meri wafaayen o bewafaa
ik roz tujhe yaad aayen apni jafaayen o bewafaa
pashemaan hoke roye, tu hansi ko tarse

tere gulshan se zyaadaa veeraan koyi veeraanaa na ho
is duniyaa mein koyi teraa apnaa to kyaa, begaanaa na ho
kisi kaa pyaar kyaa tu berukhi ko tarse

Just falling short of wishing death! ‘jiye tu iss tarah ke zindagi ko tarse’.  There are numerous songs of this situation in Hindi films, too many to count actually.  In the 60’s it can be said, that every other film had this situation song, where the hero or the heroine is wronged, and singing a song lamenting the bewafaai of the beloved.  But I have looked all over the blog and I could not find any other song so full of curses. And this is also the only song on the blog, which is tagged as ‘hate song’ category.  The song still sounds so believable and not odd at all.  All the credit to the team of composers, lyricist and the singer. For this would easily have gone wrong.

There are some more songs, which have somewhat similar emotions and ill-wishes expressed in different forms.  I made a list of songs with those varied expressions.

Lyrics

1 Mere Mehboob Qayaamat Hogi meri tarah tu aahen bhare
tu bhi kisi se pyaar karey
aur rahe wo tujhse parey
toone O sanam dhaaye hain sitam
to ye tu bhool na jaana
ke na tujhpe bhi inaayat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob qayaamat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein mohabbat hogi
2 Jo Unki Tamanna Hai Barbaad Ho Ja jo unki tamannaa hai, barbaad ho jaa
to ai dil muhabbat ki kismat banaa de
tadap aur tadap kar abhi jaan de de
yoon marte hain mar jaane waale, dikhaa de
3 Mohabbat Ab Tijaarat Ban Gayi Hai kabhi thha naam iska
bewafaai
magar ab aajkal ye behayaayee
shareefon ki sharaafat ban gayi hai
tijaarat ab mohabbat ban gayi hai
mohabbat ab tijaarat ban gayi hai
tijaarat ab mohabbat ban gayi hai
4 Gairon Pe Karam Apnon Pe Sitam ham bhi the tere manzoor-e-nazar, dil chaahe to ab iqraar na kar
sau teer chalaa seene pe magar, begaanon se milkar waar na kar
begaanon se milkar waar na kar
bemaut kahin mar jaayen na ham
ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar,
Ghairon pe karam apnon pe sitam, ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar
rahne de abhi thodaa saa bharam,
ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar
5 Guzre Hain Aaj Ishq Mein Hum Us Maqaam Se humko na ye gumaan thha,
o sangdil sanam
raah-e-waffa se tere
behak jaayenge kadam
chhalkega zehar bhi teri
aankho ke jaam se
guzre hain aaj ishq mein
hum us maqaam se
guzre hain
o bewaffa,
tera bhi yoon hi toot jaaye dil
tu bhi tadap tadap ke
pukaare ke haaye dil
tera bhi saamnaa ho kabhi,
gham ki shaam se
guzre hain
6 Main Teri Dushman Dushman Tu Mera sab ki jubaan par meri kahaani
mera dasa huwa maange na paani
sabki jubaan par meri kahaani
mera dasa huwa maange na paani
tera tamaasha sab dekhenge
kya hota hai ab dekhenge
dekhega tu na kal ka savera
main naagan tu sapera aa aa
7 Neend Ud Jaaye Teri Chain Se Sone Waale neend ud jaaye teri
chain se sone waale
ye duaa maangte hain
nain ye rone waale
maine ki hain jafaayen
mujhse kyun ho wafaayen
lag gayin mujhko mere
pyaar ki bad-duaayen
tu wafaa karta ham to thhe
tu wafaa karta ham to thhe
bewafa hone waale
neend ud jaaye teri
chain se sone waale
8 Kya Se Kya Ho Gaya Bewafaa Tere Pyaar Mein kyaa se kyaa ho gayaa
bewafaa aaaa
tere pyaar mein
chaahaa kyaa kyaa milaa
bewafaa aaaa
tere pyaar mein
chalo suhaanaa bharam to tootaa
jaanaa ke husn kyaa hai
kahti hai jisko pyaar duniyaa
kyaa cheez kyaa balaa hai
dil ne kyaa naa sahaa
bewafaa aaa aaa
tere pyaar mein
9 Din Dhal Jaaye Haaye Raat Na Jaaye pyaar me jinke sab jag chhoda
aur huye badnaam
unke hi haathon haal hua ye
baithe hain dil ko thaam
apne kabhi the ab hain paraaye
Din dhal jaaye haay raat na jaaye
10 Mo Se Chhal Kiye Jaaye samajhaake main to haari
haan dhamkaaya dini gaari, aur karoon bhi kyaa
dekho moraa jiyraa
haan jiyraa tadpaaye, jiyraa tadpaaye
mohe haay haay dekho sainyaa beimaan
mose chal, mose chal, mose chal kiye jaaye,
11 Bahaaron Ne Mera Chaman Loot Kar mujhe kyaa pataa thaa kabhi ishq mein
raqeebon ko kaasid banaate nahin
raqeebon ko kaasid banaate nahin
khataa ho gayi mujhse kaasid mere
tere haath paighaam kyun de diyaa
bahaaron ne meraa chaman lootkar
12 Meri Zindagi Mein Tum Kyun Aaye haay buri dukhiyaa dil ki
meraa dard badhaao naa baalam
meraa sabr padaa tumse jo kahin
jal jaaoge tum mar jaayenge ham
jal jaaoge tum mar jaayenge ham
dukhiyaa-dil ki wo haay hai
dukhiyaa-dil ki wo haay hai
jo saare zamaane ko sulagaaye
meri zindagi mein tum kyun aaye
13 Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
taqdeer ke bair kiya hai
taqdeer se lad loongi main
main tod chalun
main tod chalun ek pal mein
tod chalun ek pal mein
duniya ka har dastoor
magar tere pyar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoom majboor
thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahun to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor

 

Here is a list of some of my all-time favourite songs by Rafi sahab in the similar situations:

Patthar Ke Sanam Tujhe Hum Ne Mohabbat Ka Khuda Jaana – ‘Patthar Ke Sanam’ (1967)
Dil Ke Jharokhe Mein Tujhko Bitha Kar – ‘Brahmchari’ (1968)
Aaj Ki Raat Mere Dil Ki Salaami Le Le – ‘Ram Aur Shyam’ (1967)
Dil Jo Na Keh Saka – ‘Bheegi Raat’ (1965)
Teri Zulfon Se Judaai To Nahin Maangi Thi – ‘Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai’ (1961)
Rang Aur Noor Ki Baraat Kise Pesh Karun – ‘Ghazal’ (1964)

There are more similar/different songs created for Hindi films for such situations, where dejected lovers either drown in self-pity or end up giving ‘bad-dua’ in a smaller/kinder way, to the beloved.  But most songs of this genre are praying for the happiness of the beloved, who has deceived them, has indulged in ‘bewafaai’ for want of similar expressive word in the English language.  An excellent case in point is this pensive Lata song – “Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Ye“, filmed on Meena Kumari in ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraai’ (1960). Shankar-Jaikishan and Shailendra created this classic song with just the right touch of melancholy and congratulatory mood. With a dose of resignation.

Most songs in this genre, also turn out to be popular, be it the pensive songs of Mukesh, Lata, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood or Mohammed Rafi.  So the well known songs are all posted. Looking for the theme, I ended up with “Tu Pyaar Hai Kisi Aur Ka” song in ‘Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin’ (1991) by Kumar Sanu. Quite a decent composition with innovative lyrics, that one.

I was sure all well-known Rafi songs in this genre are posted. But as luck would have it, I found the link of this Rafi solo in one of my saved files, which I was just randomly checking. This is a well-known song from the film ‘Dhadkan’ (1972).  Composer is Ravi who also wrote this song with Ali Jalili.  Ali Jalili is an unknown poet for the blog, as this is the first song by him to be posted.   Avinash ji is doing a series of 70’s decade missing movies, so he may be able to find some other films where Ali Jalili has written lyrics. Ali Jalili has written one more song in the same film with Ravi, “Tumse Nazar Mili”, which was also used for advertisement of different products.  My guess is he must be someone connected with advertising jingles, more so as he has collaborated with Ravi, not a regular poet for writing the two songs in this film.

The song is filmed as a wedding reception song, where Sanjay Khan is singing this song for congratulating the bride Mumtaz and groom Roopesh Kumar.  The real feelings of Sanjay Khan are evident, but he is trying to disguise them and give blessings to the couple.

Two songs of the film are already posted in the blog, so this is the 3rd song.

Jab Toone Kuchh Na Kiya
Main To Chala Jidhar Chale Rasta

I have done posts of some songs of the late 70’s and early 80’s, but very few songs of early 70’s. This song has a very deeply meaningful and emotional core, as we expect from Ravi’s compositions usually.  There is the Punjabi dholak music in the background which carries the rhythm of the song.  And Rafi Sb’s singing is again out of this world.  For me this is a known song, as it used to be played regularly on radio.  Again, when one really listens to it with a critical ear, with the aim of judging its merit with other such type of songs, a few are listed above, it is revealed as a fabulous song on all counts.  More fabulous for being a 70’s song.  By now Ravi is a seasoned and senior composer, with huge successes behind him and much more experience of how to get the best out of Rafi.  And Rafi Sb has delivered spectacularly in this song, the only one in the film.  Subtle changes in the way some words are sung in every repeated line, and those are again different for every time he sings the mukhda.  I refuse to believe that anyone else could do so much variation in a single voice, same rhythm and level, two stanza song, in live recording.

The pauses in the lines and words of a line, and starting the next word at the same level as before the pause, what superb control in the vocals. I am not a technical person, in the matter of singing, but if anyone can explain this phenomenon to me, I will be thankful to them. It sounds as a modern-day recording done bit by bit, line by line, and mixed afterwards. Practice makes things perfect and well-rehearsed is the forte of Rafi Sb. But the question is how well rehearsed and how much perfect. I can just conclude that the farishta in the guise of a singer is giving the same dedicated 200 % to a song composed for a new actor of 70’s, as he gave to all his songs, repeated in live shows, which won him accolades and a place is history.

jis ko mila ho ye haseen tohfaa aa
badaa hi naseeb waala hai wo jag mein
haathh mein ho jis ke aisi pyaari rekha
aisi nyaari rekha
aaj haar bhi kahe
tujhe jeet mubaarak
aaj haar bhi kahe
tujhe jeet mubaarak
yeh saaz naya geet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak
mere dost tujhe tera meet mubaarak

Blog Day :

5004 Post No. : 16904

Today’s song is from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Suhaana Safar’.

Many of my articles are prompted when my memory gets triggered while listeneing to (or thinking about) songs of movies that I watched long ago.

Today’s post is one such post.

I was travelling to pick up my elder daughter from her new working place which is around 150 kms from Vadodara ( a journey of around two hours and forty-five minutes long). I was travelling to bring her back home for ‘holi’ vacation and her marriage vacation 🙂 (her marriage is scheduled this week). 🙂

I was travelling in the afternoon. When I switched on to ‘vividh bharati’ on 93.9FM’ I got to listen to this program ‘kuchh baatein kuchh geet’. It is a ‘theme’ based program where the audience also share their thoughts related to the theme and request for songs of their choice according to the theme.

During this program I got to listen to this song ‘aha aha aa ye suhaana safar’ (as the theme for that day of 17th March 2022 was ‘suhaana’ or ‘suhawnaapan’ etc.

I liked this song very much. It brought back memories of watching this movie when I must be around seven-eight years old. This movie was screened at the weekly screening of movies at the colony club where we then resided.

Though I do not remember this movie now, but this song is permanently embedded on my mind. I had shared this song as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog.

I must be between two-three years old when this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ had released. Recently I came across many movies of ‘end-sixties’ or from the years – 1968 to 1971 where songs from some of the movies are part of my nostalgia of those years.

I am sure some songs may be getting embedded on my impressionable mind then where the elders must have carried me to movies they watched or some songs were played frequently on the radio, when I was growing, and thus they become part of my vague memories.

I had earlier attempted to list down the songs which makes me feel nostalgic and those songs which bring back old memories, in this post.

I am thinking to revisit movies in chronological order -from the year of my birth i.e. 1968 to 1983-85 when I become a grown up boy and had completed my 10+2 education. I am sure this will be an interesting ‘journey’. But that is a part of another ‘series’ 🙂 of posts.

Coming back to the today’s post now …

When I reached back to my ‘base station’’ I browsed the blog and noted that this movie ‘Suhaana Safar’ is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. On checking the remaining two songs I find the song under discussion more suitable for today’s presentation as the song is happening on a ‘marriage function’ in the movie.

“Suhaana Safar -1970” was directed by Vijay for ‘Century Films, Bombay’.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, David, Manmohan Krishna, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan, K.N. Singh, Tiwari, Sunder, Randhir, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Sherry, and others.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Five songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog as given below.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Aha aha ye suhaana safar Mohd Rafi 18.03.2018

05 Saari khushiyaan hai muhabbat ki … Mohd Rafi 21.06.2009
06 Aha aha ye suhaana safar Suman Kalyanpur 18.03.2018

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This vigorous dance song is lip synced by Jayshree T. She has given an energetic and enthusiastic performance in this song which is highly enjoyable to watch.

Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Shashi Kapoor and many other male-female artists.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and say ‘Yippeeee’ to this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ on the blog.

(When I had already noted the lyrics of this song and noting the date of the earlier posts, I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 08.03.2022. And as usual lyrics of the remaining two songs from this movie were also sent by our dear Prakash ji for that day.)

“Durga”(1939) was produced by Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai and directed by Franz Osten for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Rama Shukul, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Peethawala, Saroj Borkar, Balwant singh, Lalita Deulkar etc in it.

“Durga”(1939) had ten songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the third song from “Durga”(1939) to appear in the blog.

Devika Rani is the singer. Lyrics are penned by Narendranath Tuli. Saraswati Devi is the music director.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Devika Rani herself.

From the lyrics it is seen that the song is a “wedding” song. Whether it is a gudda gudiya wedding song or a real wedding song is not known, seeing that video of the song is not available.

Nevertheless, the fact that this song came to my notice just now and it is getting discussed today validates the oft made observation that some higher forces are overseeing this blog and it is these higher forces that often decide what songs are covered in this blog on what day. 🙂 The daughter of one of our regulars got married today and fate ordained that the blog celebrates the occasion with this song from the yore.

So we take this occasion to greet the recently wedded daughter of our regular contributor Avinash Scrapwala. We all wish Shivani and Jeegar a very happy, prosperous and long married life.


Song-Nanhi Bitiya Byaah Rachaaye (Durga) (1939) Singer-Devika Rani, Lyrics-Narendranath Tuli, MD-Saraswati Devi

Lyrics

Nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye

Nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye
dulha chadh haathi par aaye
baaje dhol mridang

laal chunariya kesari choli
sheesh chadhe chandal aur roli

baapu aaye doli chadhaaye
naina chham chham neer bahaaye
baapu aaye doli chadhaaye
naina chham chham neer bahaaye

Hullo Atuldom

In the (almost) 14 years of its existence, there have been many changes in the lives of those associated with atulsongaday.me.

Our Atulji has shifted base a few times in these years. If I am not wrong his daughter has qualified to be a doctor as also Nahmji’s son and Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji’s (Guruji) grandson/s have also become doctors. Peevesie who entered the world of ASAD and was called the youngest follower turning to contributor and mouthpiece (for the blog) among her friends and family has since become a working adult and even has a life-partner as also Nahmji’s daughter. Avinashji has also shifted base a few times and also had an overseas stint in the years in between. Maheshji (Mukesh Fan is his second name) has returned to Motherland and is no longer an NRA (non-resident atulite). I know that similar changes, in life & on the work front, have happened in the lives of other Atulites too. I have myself graduated from being a full-time mother to a leisurely-paced mother.

There is a lesser-known Atulite who has contributed only one post as a guest-poster (she took over the mantle of youngest contributor). Her forte’ is that she is musically inclined as her father (a hyper-active atulite). I know that she also pens verses which are very meaningful. She had given her father this post on his birthday six years back. She was welcomed wholeheartedly by atulites who wanted more from her but her preoccupation with education and other activities may not have given her time to contribute more to the blog. But the song with that post was so meaningful, it would have been appropriate for today. She has grownup into a young adult and is stepping into a new phase of her life. Here is wishing her all the best for the future.

There is a happy event happening in the life of our Guruji too in the next few days. Wishing him lots of joy and all the best to his grandson.

“Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai” is a title that was first used in Hindi films in 1961 which was written and directed by Nasir Husain and had his time-tested formula of hero impersonating, heroine falling in love with the impersonator, misunderstandings creeping in due to the villain and heroine’s father, and finally the hero and heroine getting married with the blessings of all elders. The movie was littered with great songs.

The title was repeated again in 1998. This time the director was Deepak Sareen who had started his career as assistant to Yash Chopra in ‘Deewar’. He had been assistant in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Mashaal’ and ‘Faasle’ before independently directing ‘Ranbhoomi’, ‘Aaina’, ‘Gaddar’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai’, and ‘Albela’. This romantic film had a skirt-chaser for a hero who is disliked by the girl initially. He woos her by promising to give up his errant ways, convinces both families that they are ready to marry. But the twist in the tale comes in the form of the hero’s son from a previous girlfriend who insists that he will tell-all to the fiancee if the hero doesn’t tell himself. The story comes to a happy ending with the girl and the child forgiving the hero and ‘THE END’

AR Rehman – The Musician of 21st Century – 3

84th Birthday of Waheeda Rehman on 3rd February 2022

46th Birthday of Abhishek Bachchan on 5th February 2022

The songs of the movie ‘Delhi-6’ are among my favorite music scores by AR Rehman. I rate this qawwaali from the movie, for which I wrote a post back in 2012 as among the best of hindi film songs in this genre.  The links of two songs posted in the blog are given below:

Arziyaan saari main chehre pe likh ke laaya hoon (Delhi 6)
Ye Dilli hai mere yaar (Delhi 6)

 

AR Rehman is also a product of advertising industry, as he started his career is advertising. The one ad I remember is of ‘Garden-Vareili” as composed by AR Rehman. He soon proved his mettle as a talented musician at a very young age working in Tamil and Hindi films, mainly with Mani Rathnam.  Many of his severest critics will agree that, ARR revolutionized the Hindi film music scene in the 90’s and changed the sound of songs completely.  Few of the other musicians have been able to imitate him or his style.  Most of them thought it better to keep to sufiaana or import some songs from other countries like Pakistan or Egypt etc. then try to surpass ARR in creativity.  In many aspects this revolution is even bigger than the reinvention of HFM in 1950 with ‘Barsaat’, by Shankar-Jaikishan.  I am not going towards RDB reinvention, as I have a different opinion about that than the popular conception.

So, Rehman was here, working simultaneously in Mumbai and South, with more focus on southern language films.  This continued till he went truly international and collaborated with other musicians of the west and worked in Hollywood.  Among all these, the Bollywood film work was never his sole focus.  He diversified and did select few films for the Hindi film industry.  The biggies and the not so biggies did go to Chennai to rope him in to give music to their films.  And he has been selective about the projects he takes.  Although he has given 1 or 2 music scores which were not up to the mark, in my opinion.

But overall, his work is critically acclaimed, in all the big banner films like ‘Lagaan’, ‘Guru’, ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘1947 Earth’, ‘Yuvraaj’ etc. and the Jewel in the crown song of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.  His mini bio is here.

Recently, he has been seen performing live at a special Pavilion dedicated for him and his troupe at DUBAIEXPO2020.  We did go to explore the expo, but ARR was not performing in the first week.  We landed in Dubai the night before the EXPO was to open, so the ‘raunaq’ at Dubai airport was to be seen to be believed.  But that is a subject of another post.

As post no. 3 of the series, I am presenting this song from ‘Delhi-6’, which has folk origins, or ‘traditional’ as the lyrics are credited. Though some sources are crediting Prasoon Joshi as the lyricist.  Unusual song for ARR, but the hall mark of his fusion and composition with vocals, where musical instruments could be used is visible.   And ARR thrives on the unusual, those who have followed his career will agree.

Waheeda Rehman, the graceful dancing star and an actor of repute of last century and a character actor in current century, celebrated her 84th birthday two days ago.  Born in 1938, which makes her just 18 years old when she debuted in Hindi films with ‘CID’ (1956).  I am presently watching that movie (in installments), so can vouch that she does look very young, despite the heavily made up/get up in the film.   Lot of other information about her is available here.

Abhishek Bachchan is celebrating his 46th birthday today.  As is the ‘chalan’ nowadays for celebrities, he must be somewhere exotic to ring in the birthday.

Both Waheeda Rehman and Abhishek Bachchan are featuring in this song, where Waheeda Rehman, Aditi Rao Hydari, Supriya Pathak and others are singing the song on screen, playback by Rekha Bharadwaj.  Sonam Kapoor and Om puri are also seen, who are not taking part in the song, filmed on the terrace of the houses in old Delhi area of Chaandni Chowk.

I think Abhishek Bachchan is an underrated and under utilized actor in the Hindi film scene.  It can’t have been easy to follow in the giant leaps of Amitabh Bachchan and the remarkable footsteps of Jaya Bachchan.

Simple orchestration and simple filming.   This is a folk song, and it mentions the town of Raipur in the stanza.

What could the term “Sasural genda phool” mean ? I think it means, though ‘sasural’ or the ‘In-laws place’ looks like a Marigold, but our attachment is full of fragrance is great and long lasting.  The appearances can be deceptive.

gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na

gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na

ye to milne milaane ki raat hai

ai ai o
gori ghoonghat mein
mukhda chupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai

aaj ki raat zara chup rahna
dil ki baaten na balam se kahna
wo agar chheden to bal kha jaana
unki baaton mein na tu aa jaana
mard ki zaat ko tu kya jaane
kya jaane
bade chaalaak hain ye deewaane
kabhi painyya padenge kabhi vinti karenge
un se kahna ke jaao sataao na
arre ye to nakhre dikhaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein haaye daiyya

ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai

This movie had Bharat Bhushan, Pradeep Kumar, Bina Rai, Asha Parekh, Leela Chitnis, Rajendranath, Rehman, Agha etc. This was a Madrasi style movie, but curiously enough, its story was inspired from a Bangla story. It was an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s 1906 Bengali story “Noukadubi”.

The movie had ten songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Ghoonghat”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Hullo Atuldom

So, we have post number 16700 up. Congratulations to Atulji on yet another Hundred. There was a time, not so long back, when we used to have a century every month. Atulji, please confirm, wasn’t there a fastest century too- a century in 16 days? In the run up to my previous post I had noticed that “this date last year” i.e. 15th December 2020, the blog had celebrated its 16100th post with this post which also happened to be the music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan’s 1000th on the blog. I was wondering how Atulji will make post number 16700 special and it is indeed special considering the time-period of that song (1947). Hearty congratulations Atulji.

Let us kick-start the new century with a song from the 1981 release “Shradhanjali”. This was written and directed by Anil Sharma (who was only 21 then), produced by K C Sharma and had Hemant Bhonsle’s music and songs written by Anjaan. Bhupinder Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, and Shobha Gurtu were the playback singers used.

The movie had a cast headed by Rakhee (in one of her sacrificing Naari roles) and Deepak Parasher was her romantic hero. Arun Govil played her Devar (brother-in-law) who is in awe of her and simply worships her. Madhu Kapoor was Arun Govil’s romantic interest, Sulochana was mother to Deepak Parasher and Arun Govil and Rakhee’s mother-in-law. Suresh Oberoi played the spoke-in-the-wheel that topples Rakhee’s apple cart. Then the movie had K.N. Singh, Jankidas, Yunus Parvez, Manik Dutt, Keshto Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni etc bringing up the supporting cast; all of whose characters together make the movie a ‘sob-story-movie’ which became Rakhee’s forte’ for a few years in the 80s. The Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu Bhopali also makes an appearance in the movie for the song that was sung by Shobha Gurtu.

I have very little knowledge about the Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu, though I have seen the song from ‘Shradhanjali’ a few times in my life. Her facial expressions were very pretty. This is what our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has written about Shakeela Banu Bhopali in his latest post (and I quote, hope he doesn’t mind it)

The other famous qawwal in films was Shakeela Banu Bhopali. She was multitalented. She acted in 32 films, but sang only 4 songs in 3 films. She too gave music to just 1 film- ‘Maze Le Lo’- 1975. She died on 16-12-2002.

This was part of a post that highlighted Jaani Babu Qawwal in Arunkumarji’s current series on ‘songs from artiste name films’

As per what I read somewhere on the internet, she had lost her voice due to the Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984. She passed away of a cardiac arrest on 16th December, 2002.

On to the song that is part of the wedding rituals of Madhu Kapoor and Arun Govil. We can see Suresh Oberoi welcoming the groom and the baaraat of which Arun Govil’s bhabhima (Rakhee) and her chief advisor (K.N. Singh) who is helping her in resurrecting her husband’s business after Suresh Oberoi ruins it and is the cause of Deepak Parasher’s death.


Song-Sainyya doli leke aaye tere dwaare sawere leke jaayenge(Shradhhanjali)(1981) Singer-Shobha Gurtu, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Hemant Bhonsle
Chorus

Lyrics

sainya doli leke
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

gori kar le tu solah singaar
ye din phir na aayenge
gori kar le tu solah singaar
ye din phir na aayenge

sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

maathe pe chanda ki bindiya lagaa doon
haan haan bindiya laga doon
maathe bindiya lagaa doon

ankhiyon mein badra ka kajra saja doon
haan haan kajra sajaa doon
naina kajra saja doon

phoolon ke ras mein
chunri ranga ke
phoolon ke ras mein chunri ranga ke
gale pehna doon
gale pehna doon ye chandrhaar
to raaja lut jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

saj saj ke aaya tere sapnon ka raaja
haan haan sapnon ka raaja
tere sapnon ka raaja

peechhe baaraati
aage aage band baja
haan haan aage band baja
sajeela band baja

gore gore haathon mein hogi varmaala
gore gore hathon mein hogi varmaala
hogi unse
hogi unse teri ankhiyaan chaar
to naina sharmaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

chunri dupatte ka bandhan judega
haan haan bandhan judega
naya bandhan judega

phir saath pheron mein jiyara udega
haan haan jiyara udega
tera jiyara udega
paanv ke neeche neeche honge sitaare
paanv ke neeche neeche honge sitaare
tere aanchal mein
tere aanchal mein hogi bahaar
do pyaase dil mil jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

Hullo Atuldom

Chal chameli baagh mein was a post by our Nahmji to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma (one-half of the Laxmi-Pyare duo) on his 80th birthday. The song was from Shubash Ghai’s “Krodhi”. The post also gives us a brief synopsis of the movie, the cast and people associated with the music of the film.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle as playback for Shashi Kapoor and Zeenat Aman. It is a song at the wedding of Zeenat’s sister (Madhu Malhotra is the actress) and of the chhed-chhaad variety where the ‘ladkiwaale’ and ‘ladkewaale’ keep talking of the benevolence of the bride and groom towards each other. It was a song which I had in memory for a long time and Nahmji’s post last year brought it out of cold-storage (so to speak).

We remember the cute gentleman ‘Shashi Kapoor’ today on his 4th death anniversary today. He had a long run on the silver screen having begun as a child actor in the late 40s with movies like his brother, Raj Kapoor’s directorial “Aag” & “Awaara”. He had played the childhood of Ashok Kumar in ‘Sangram’ and Bharat Bhushan in ‘Dana Paani’, he was credited as Master Shashiraj in these movies. An interesting trivia that I just recollected is that he has played Ashok Kumar’s son in a few films in the ’70s and ’80s and Bharat Bhushan’s son in ‘Pyar Ka Mausam’ (there may be other such movies too).

He made a charming pair with all of his female co-stars be it Nanda, Mumtaz, Rekha, Rakhee, Hema, Parveen Babi, Sharmila Tagore, Babita and many others. He was cast opposite Indrani Mukherjee in his first adult role in ‘Dharmputra’ and his final film appearance was in the 1998 Pakistani-British epic biographical film ‘Jinnah’ where he was the narrator.

I was particularly in love with his pairing with Amitabh Bachchan, the two appeared together in 12 films starting with ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. He had acted in about 116 films of which 61 were as solo hero and 55 were multi-starrers. At one point in his career his older brother Raj Kapoor had called him a ‘Taxi’ as he was working in many movies at the same time.

Let us also take this opportunity to wish our own Zeenie Baby on turning 70 this year. Her birthday was on 19th November. For fans of Bollywood, who were young or kids in the ’70s, it may be difficult to believe that Zeenat Aman turned 70. Zeenat- who was a style icon in her days. An actress who was not always cast as the typical Bharatiya Nari. An actress who was comfortable in whatever she wore even if it was a two-piece bikini- which was, not exactly, a preferred costume of the actresses of her period specially if they played the main lead. She had a unique style and diction for delivering her dialogues which made her the perfect choice for playing modern convent-educated characters back then. She was a decent dancer too.

Missing the super cute Balbir Raj Kapoor a.k.a. Shashi Kapoor and wishing health and happiness to Zeenat Aman.

maano hamaara ehsaan

ho o ho o o

ladka tumhaara kanwaara rah jaata
ladka tumhaara kanwaara rah jaata
ji maano hamaara ehsaan

maano hamaara ehsaan
ke ladki ne haan kar di

o ladke ke doston

o ladke ke doston
pehle tum yeh kaam karo
ladki lene aaye ho
jhuk kar hamko salaam karo o o

jhuk kar hamko salaam karo
ladki ki saheliyon

ham jo zidd par aayenge
ladki lene aaye hain
tumko bhi le jaayenge

jaane kaise maan gaye
ladki jaadugarni hai
jaan gaye pehchaan gaye
ham jaan gaye pehchaan gaye
ladke ne sau kat likhe
tab ham ne ikraar kiya
ladki ko iss shaadi pe
mushkil se taiyyaar kiya

mushkil se taiyyaar kiya
saari ki saari taiyyaari rah jaati
saari ki saari taiyyaari rah jaati
ji maano hamaara ehsaan

maano hamaara ehsaan
ke ladke ne haan kar di

maano hamaara ehsaan
ke ladki ne haan kar di

ke ladke ne haan kar di
ke ladki ne haan kar di
ke ladke ne haan kar di
ke ladki ne haan kar di
