Hullo Atuldom

Kaahe ko byaahi bides posted on 30 march 2014 is a post where I had thanked all the lyrics writers of film songs for highlighting emotions of human beings and particularly women. I had said “WOW” to writers who cared for feelings of the Female of the human species. Specially the feelings at the time of “Bidaai” after the wedding rituals.

In that post I had also mentioned that songs with the heading/ title “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” has appeared twice on the blog until that date -30/03/2014. It is nearly 9 years since and fresh reviewing shows that we have the following songs posted with the said title

Song Movie (Year) Date of post Remarks
Lakhi baabul mere kaaahe ko deenhi bides Suhaagraat (1948) 7 December 2011 Credited to Amir Khusro
Kaaahe ko byaahi bides Heer Ranjha (1948) 8 December 2011
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Nadirshah (1968) 25 February 2013
kaahe ko byaahi bides Aadha Din Aadhi Raat (1977) 30 March 2014
Kaahe ko byaahi bades Jailor (1938) 7 August 2018 (post by Arunji)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides re lakhi baabul morey Jhankaar(1942) 24 February 2020 (post by Arunji & credited to Amir Khusro.)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Umraao Jaan (1981) 4 March 2022 (credited to Amir Khusro)

As can be seen from the above we have seven versions of “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” of which ‘suhaagraat”(1948) “Umrao Jaan” (1981) & ” Jhankaar” (1942) give credit to Amir Khusro for the song. One version each have been credited to Wali Sahab, Kamal Amrohi, Majrooh Sultanpuri & Anand Bakshi. Another interesting result of this review- two of the posts are exhaustive, highly informative writeups by our in-house encyclopaedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji.

This is what he has said in his post dated 07/08/2018 about the use of this song in films :-

Today’s song is “Kaahe Ko Byaahi Bides”. This is a famous song by Amir Khusro. This has been used in several films like, Jhankaar-42, Heer Ranjha-48, Nadir Shah-68, Suhag Raat-48, Maang Bharo Sajna-80 and Umrao Jaan-2009, in addition to today’s song from film Jailor-38. It is also sung as a NFS by many famous singers. Mostly in films, the original song is mixed with some new lyrics and the credit is given to film’s lyricist. In film Jailor-38 too, the lyricist’s name is given as Kamal Amrohi.

All of what I have written above will make readers wonder where I am getting.

Of course I am presenting another version with this post. It is in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurthy, written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Laxmi-Pyare. It is from the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” which was directed by T. Rama Rao and produced by A. Poornachandra Rao.

It had Rekha- Moushumi Chatterjee – Jeetendra heading a cast which also had Kajal Kiran, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Parveen Paul, Yunus Parvez, Mohan Choti etc. The plot was essentially, an oft-repeated, melodrama where the hero falls in love & marries one heroine but has to, later, marry the other heroine who may have been selected by his family. At the time of the second marriage, the hero may believe that the first wife is dead or lost to him (as the case maybe) thus making the second marriage valid. Then the first wife will make a reappearance and then the complications will begin, leading to everyone being ready to sacrifice their love. Matters will get more interesting (for the audience) if the heroines are friends and infants are also present, then the climax will have one lady dying so that the other one live the rest of her life peacefully. This was the outline of most triangular love-stories, but was a hit-formula adopted by filmmakers to fill their coffers.

Today’s song comes at the close of the movie where we have a dying Rekha being accepted by Moushumi Chatterjee as her husband’s first wife. She instructs her husband to fill Rekha’s ‘Maang’ with Sindoor.

With this post we wish Kavita Krishnamurthy on turning a year older. This was one of her first recording for Hindi films. Of course, she had recorded ‘aayega aayega… aayega aanewaala” under Vilayat Khan’s music direction for “Kaadambari” (1975) and here is the post to that song as written by Sudhirji in his series “Songs Repeated In Hindi Films”.

That makes the song from “Kaadambari” her debut in Hindi films, which was followed by a song in Kannada under Bhaskar Chandavarkar’s music direction. Today’s song from “Maang Bharo Sajna” happened to be her first in the 1980s; however songs from “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” (1985) got her recognition; though there were other films between 1980 & 1985 were Kavita Krishnamurthy had sung songs most of which under Laxmi-Pyare’s music direction.

I had a very sweet experience last weekend. I got an opportunity to wish today’s birthday girl on the occasion of Sankranti. I interacted with her for a few minutes, wished her etc. She was gracious enough to let me click pictures with her. She told me that Bangalore is, now her favourite city, when I told her that I had met her once before too, on a flight from Bangalore to Mumbai.

Here is the song.


Song-Kaahe ko byaahi bides (Maang Bharo Sajna)(1980) Singer-Kavita Krishnamurthy, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Blog Day :

5241 Post No. : 17238

Today we celebrate a combined anniversary of two singers. Two singers who were contemporary, two singers who were very good friends, two singers whose voices were considered almost similar. It is the birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (nee Roy), and the remembrance day of Meena Kapoor.

23rd November – Geeta Ji was born in the year 1930 in Idilpur village (now in Bangladesh), into a zamindar family. In early 1940s, they moved to Calcutta (now Kolkata) and then to Bombay (now Mumbai) in mid 1940s.  The same date in 2017, Meena ji passed away in Kolkata, after some years of illness. She was in Delhi till 2003, the year when Anil Da (Anil Biswas) passed away, and then she moved to Kolkata.

Geeta ji started her singing career in 1945, with the film ‘Aadhaar’ under the music direction of SN Tripathi. Her last released film is ‘Anubhav’ from 1971, and then ‘Midnight’ from 1972, which remained unreleased.

Meena ji started her career in 1946. Two films with her playback singing were released that year – ‘Door Chalen’ under the music direction of KC Dey, and ‘Eight Days’ under the music direction of SD Burman. Her last singing assignment is recorded for the 1965 film ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’, with music by Anil Biswas.

As I thought of writing a combined post for these two singing ladies, I tried to search for a duet sung by them. As per the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate only three duets they have sung. Two of them are already posted here on our blog. The first one is from the film ‘Aadhi Raat’ (1950) – “Main Ne Balam Se Poochhaa Miloge Kahaan”, and the second one is from the film ‘Jalte Deep’ also from 1950 – “Aayi Milan Ki Raat Karo Meethhi Meethhi Baat”. The third duet listed in Geet Kosh is from 1951 film ‘Ghaayal’. The song is “Tera Kisi Pe Aaye Dil…”. This song is not yet posted on our blog. And for good reason. This song is not yet traceable in public domain. The funny thing is that the song on the ‘palat’ (other) side of the record (GE 8739) is very much available – “Dil Toota Hua, Pal Pal Tujhe Pukaare” (singer is Meena Kapoor) and also posted on our blog. But as I started inquiring yesterday evening from my trusted circle of collector friends, all of the replied that this song is somehow not yet available.

But then today late morning, I got information about two other duet songs of this pair, which was very heartening. Just as a side, film ‘Ghaayal’ of 1951 has one other song in which the voices of these two ladies appear. However, this one is a trio song accompanied by GM Durrani. It is a long song, on both sides of the record (no. GE8740) which means it is about 6 minutes long. I was actually preparing to use this trio song for today’s post, but then I got two responses from two dear friends, both sharing information about one duet song each. Very interesting development indeed.

First I got to see a message from dear Gajendra Khanna ji (Bengaluru based) in which he shared info about another duet song. This one is from the 1948 film ‘Hip Hip Hurray’ (aka ‘Chaube ji’) and the song title is “Hum Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Jaan Gaye Ji”. The Geet Kosh does not list the singer names for this song. I tried to confirm this information, checking with another dear friend Zafar Bhai (based in Delhi-6), and he sent me the image of the record of this song. The reason that GK does not list the singer names is because the record itself does not carry these names. On checking back with Gajendra Ji, he shared with me the audio of the song, and said that the identification is based on the voices on the track. So we found another duet song.

And then almost immediately Zafar Bhai also responded with an additional song. This turns out to be a NFS duet, that makes it all the more rare. The fact that there are really very rare duet NFS songs (of any pair of singers), being able to locate one with these two voices, which have otherwise also not sung too many songs together, makes is rarer than rare.

I decided to go ahead with this NFS song, and dear Zafar Bhai immediately obliged by posting it on YouTube. All the additional delays that bring this post to almost 9 pm in the evening, are my doing. :D) :D)

The lyrics of this song are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani, an eminent poet of his time. Music is from the mind of Vedpal Verma, one of the lesser heard names in Hindi films, who has otherwise a notable portfolio of 70 songs from about a dozen films (this info is till 1980, and there may be more work done by this MD beyond 1980).

The song is a ‘bidaai’ song. A hoary tradition of this land – a song that is sung to bid farewell to a new bride as she starts her journey to a new home, a new family and a new life partner. The words are so wonderfully appropriate. My identification of the voices is that the first stanza is in the voice of Geeta ji and the second stanza is in the voice of Meena ji. I may be wrong, as I am not a good judge of voices. The record label unmistakably carries both names. In case my identification is in error, please let me know and I will make necessary changes.

In the beginning of the song there are a few lines that have been recited by an unidentified male voice. Could it be the poet himself? I cannot say.

Two very beautiful voices, and two very beautiful ladies. Good friends, but singing together only occasionally. Enjoy this very rare treat of an NFS duet song, with lots of thanks to Zafar Bhai for making my day.

 

Song – Jaa Ri Laadli Apne Ghar Ko (NFS) (1952) Singer – Geeta Roy (Dutt), Meena Kapoor, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajasthani, MD – Vedpal Verma

kaisa milan ye kaisa bichhudna

kaisi jag ki reet re

kaise hain ye meet
goonj raha kaanon mein ab tak
wahi vidaai geet

yaad hamaari karna
saath tumhaare meri duaaen
phoolo phalo khush rehna

oo oo oooo
bachpan ke sab sangi saathi
bachpan ke sab sangi saathi
bhulat naahin bhulaaye
man chhoda babul ki nagri
man chhoda babul ki nagri
tan doli mein jaaye

door kahin wo le ke bansi
baar baar ye gaaye
ja ri laadli apne ghar ko
yaad hamaari karna
saath tumhaare meri duaaen
phoolo phalo khush rehna
ja ri laadli

कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसा मिलन ये कैसा बिछुड़ना
कैसी जग की रीत रे
कैसी जग की रीत
दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते
दे दी बिदा मोहे हँसते हँसते
कैसे हैं ये मीत
गूंज रहा कानों में अब तक
वही विदाई गीत
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

ओ ओ ओ
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
बचपन के सब संगी साथी
भूलत नहीं भुलाए
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
मन छोड़ा बाबुल की नगरी
तन डोली में जाये
तन डोली में जाये
दूर कहीं वो ले के बांसुरी
बार बार ये गाये
जा री लाड़ली अपने घर को
याद हमारी करना
साथ तुम्हारे मेरी दुआएं
फूलो फलो खुश रहना
जा री लाड़ली

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.

Sl. No.

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.

तमन्नाओं कि दुनिया
यूं तो हर इन्सान बसाता है
मगर पाता वही है
जो…. यहां तक़्दीर लाता है

मेरे दोस्त तुझे
तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
ये साज़ नया गीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक

खेली है बहार से ये फूलों कि कली
ख्वाबों कि दुल्हन बड़े नाज़ों में पली
खेली है बहार से ये फूलों कि कली
ख्वाबों कि दुल्हन बड़े नाज़ों में पली
पलकों पे बिठाना ऐसे सुख देना अ अ
याद न करे ये कभी बाबुल कि गली ई
अपने बाबुल कि गली
गाए खुशि के तराने
ऐसी प्रीत मुबारक
गाए खुशी के तराने
ऐसी प्रीत मुबारक
ये साज़ नया गीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक

चमके क्यों न तारा उस की क़िस्मत का
जिस को मिला हो ये हसीन तोह्फ़ा
चमके क्यों न तारा उस की क़िस्मत का
जिस को मिला हो ये हसीन तोह्फ़ा
बड़ा ही नसीब वाला है वो जग में
हाथ में हो जिस के ऐसी प्यारी रेखा
ऐसी न्यारी रेखा
आज हार भी कहे
तुझे जीत मुबारक
आज हार भी कहे
तुझे जीत मुबारक
ये साज़ नया गीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक
मेरे दोस्त तुझे तेरा मीत मुबारक

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.

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

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’

“Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai” (1998) starred Twinkle Khanna, Farida Jalal, Himani Shivpuri, Namrata Shirodkar (guest appearance), Salman Khan, Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever, Saeed Jaffery, and Master Aditya Narayan. The movie had songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Jatin-Lalit. Today we are having the movie debuting with a song sung by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam. It has the whole cast except Aditya Narayan enjoying the engagement of Salman and Twinkle.

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.

Song-Gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na (Ghoonghat)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
hamen gusse se
haan hamen gusse se aankhen dikhaao na
ye to hansne hansaane ki raat hai

aaj tu kaahe ko sharmaati hai
ye ghadi roz nahin aati hai
aane waale hain piya milne ko
phool hain dil ke tere khilne ko
tujhko rasiya ki nazar lootegi lootegi
aaj nainon ki sharam tootegi
kaahe tere ye nain
tera dil hai bechain
sakhi hamse yoon daaman chhudaao na
ye to milne milaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein
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
gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
hamen gusse se aankhen dikhaao na
ye to hansne hansaane ki raat hai

“Ghoonghat”(1960) was produced by S S Wasan and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini Studios, Madras. 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.

The song is picturised as a marriage ritual song. The song is lip synced by Bina Rai who plays the silently sacrificing lady, a character that was the cornerstone of Hindi movies of these days.

The bride is played by a very young Asha Parekh.

Chorus

Lyrics

Jaa ri sakhi saj dhaj ke

jaa ri sakhi saj dhaj ke
apne pee ke dwaare

tu khushiyon se jholi bhar le
dekh na aansu hamaare ae ae
jaa ri sakhi saj dhaj ke
apne pee ke dwaare

ik ghar ujde
ik bas jaaye
hai yahi jag ki reeti
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

o
jaa ri dulhaniya
dekh na mudke
sakhiyon pe kya beeti
hmm mm hmm
hmm mm hmm

apni apni kismat hai ye
koi jeete koi haare ae ae ae
ja ri sakhi saj dhaj ke
apne pee ke dwaare
