27th August – a traveling tour, a distant land, and an unexpected loss; a loss that is as numbing even today, as shattering as it was when it happened then. 1976, and a hotel in Detroit, USA. The soul of the voice and the voice of the soul – both were stilled forever. A life of just 53 years. And a singing career that was wonderfully placed. Both cut short by the matters of the heart – matters that could not be set right.

Today, we remember Mukesh, through his songs, in an effort to re-live the times. And to enjoy the listening pleasure that this voice still continues to be forty two years after his departure.

Mahesh ji’s wonderful selection “Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai” from an obscure film ‘Subhash Chandra’ has already posted earlier in the day today. Here is one more song in the memory of this soulful voice.

The film is ‘Aayega Aanewaala’ from 1967. This film is produced and directed by Kewal Misra for his home company, Kewal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors reads as follows – Kumkum, Sanjeev Kumar, Sabita Chatterjee, Ram Mohan, Kundan, Rajan Haksar, Chaman Puri, Uma Khosla, Ravi Khanna, Bela Bose, Khairati, and Agha.

There are six songs in this film, all written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and the music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. One song of this film has already been posted here. This is the second song coming on board.

The filming location for this song is Simla (in Himachal Pradesh) – a very scenic and a popular vacation resort, right from the pre-independence days. The song is picturized as what appears to be a picnic song. Sanjeev Kumrar is wooing and teasing Kum Kum, telling her that he is a seasoned player, and that he is not easily perturbed.

The song is a lively, playful song. In the voice of Mukesh, it becomes more endearing. The voice suits all types of emotions – even naughty playfulness. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Hum Wo Nahin Jo Aapke Kadmon Mein Dil Ko Rakh Den (Aayega Aanewaala) (1967) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
teri nazar ka raaz hain hum
bade zamaana saaz hain hum
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
badi haseen hain ye adaayen
kaho hamen na aazmaayen
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum
tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum  
tumhen kasam hai maan jaao
hamen ye tewar na dikhaao
kyon ke zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

“Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) was Directed by Durgesh Kumar and Santoshi for Durgesh Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Kumkum, Kamaljeet, Mumtaz, Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Mohan Choti, Murad, aruna Irani, Johny Whisky, Kamal Mehra, Parshuram, Mirza Musharraf, Tuntun, Balam, Kathana, Jerry, Jankidas, Baroon Van Hizi, Kingkong etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it and most were qawwaalis as can be guessed from the title. Nine songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

Here is the tenth song from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

This song is lip synced by Tuntun who is seen wooing a well built gentleman and singing this “expression of love” song for his benefit in what is a reversal of role of genders in Hindi movie songs. The gentleman looks like the jinn of Alladin’s chirag to me. 🙂 I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify him.


Song-Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai (Qawwaali Ki Raat)(1964) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics

mujhe tumse muhabbat hai

mujhe tumse muhabbat hai

yaqeen kar lo
ke is dil mein
tum hi tum thhe
tum hi tum ho
khuda samjhe mohabbat ko
jo is dil ko na tum samjho mohabbat naam hai
jiska badi naazuk hakikat hai
muhabbat hai
muhabbat hai
mujhe tumse muhabbat hai
muhabbat hai
muhabbat hai
khuda bhi gavaah hai
khuda bhi gavaah hai

muhabbat mein sukoon e dil
kabhi haasil nahin hota
wahaan rukti hai ye kashti
jahaan saahil nahin hota
wo saahil par nahin aate
jinhen toofaan ki hasrat hai
muhabbat hai

mujhe tumse muhabbat hai
muhabbat hai

khuda bhi gavaah hai
khuda bhi gavaah hai

Hullo Atuldom

I know of two movies that go by the name ‘Duniya’. One was in 1968 which had Dev Anand and Vyjayantimala in the lead and the second ‘Duniya’ (1984) had Dev Anand’s contemporary Dilip Kumar with Ashok Kumar in central roles around which Rishi Kapoor and Amrita Singh’s characters were built.

The ‘Duniya’ that came in 1968 was directed by T Prakash Rao and had a lot of popular songs like “Dooriyan Nazdeekiyan”; “Falsafa Pyar Ka Tum Kya Jaano”; the fun song “Tu Hi Meri Laxmi Tu Hi Meri Chhaaya” etc. SH Bihari, Gopaldas ‘Neeraj’, Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri were the lyricists and Shankar-Jaikishan were the music directors.

On going through the blog, I found that one more ‘Duniya’ is listed, which released in 1948 and had C Ramchandra for composer. I don’t have any knowledge about this movie other than the fact that on this blog all the songs from this movie are covered. For that matter even the 1968 movie has all its songs on the blog.

So now that brings us to ‘Duniya’ which released in 1984. It was produced by Yash Johar of Dharma Productions and directed by Ramesh Talwar of ‘Baseraa’ and ‘Doosra Aadmi’ fame. Its story, screenplay & dialogues are credited to Javed Akhtar. It had an impressive cast headed by Ashok Kumar and Dilip Kumar (as I have said earlier) ably supported by their colleagues of the 1950s and 1960s viz: Pran, Pradeep Kumar, and Prem Chopra. Saira Banu made a special appearance, her sole release after she retired in 1976/77. (One of her movies with Vinod Mehra as co-star, completed in 1976 released in 1988.) ‘Duniya’ also had Amrish Puri to complete the trio who wreak havoc in the life of Mohan Kumar (Dilip Kumar) which leads to the family getting separated, wife dying etc.  This means that the movie belonged to the action/ drama/ revenge genre. This movie had RD Burman’s music for songs penned by Javed Akhtar.

There is a re-run by the satellite channel Zee Classic of it programme ‘Classic Legends with Javed Akhtar’ which is basically a guided biography of legends who gave Hindi film industry some iconic movies and music. I happened to see an episode of this where RD Burman’s music was showcased. In the course of the programme Javed Akhtar has mentioned a song from ‘Duniya’ (1984).

As we all know a song is made when poetry is set to tune in a manner that it can be sung. There are times when the reverse can also happen. A musician thinks of a tune and has a song written to go with it. Javed Akhtar spoke of a song where RD had a tune for which the mukhda (opening stanza) would end in a tune that follows the tune of “Tanhaayi Mein Tadpaane Ko” from SD Burman’s song “Jeewan Ke Safar Mein Raahi” from ‘Munim ji’ (1955).  He was telling it was almost as if RD was paying tribute to his father.

Today on RD’s 78th birth anniversary I think we should have this particular song. ‘Duniya’ was not that successful and I don’t think any of its songs are in public memory. Even I remembered it only when I heard Javed Akhtar mention it. Everytime a movie flops, it takes its music of the movie down with it. I think this is what happened to the songs of this film.

So here is the song which was written by Javed Akhtar for a tune set by RD Burman inspired by his father’s tune. It is sung by Kishore Kumar to Rishi Kapoor’s lip-syncing. We can also see Amrish Puri overseeing the actions of Rishi Kapoor and Javed Khan, the fellow who walks away with Amrita’s bag.

Missing Films of 1960s – 71
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Although into the seventies now, in terms of songs covered in this series, still there is a lot more to cover. Many more films from the 1960s are still waiting for their debut here on our blog.

Today’s film is ‘Sakhi Lutera’ from 1969. As discussed in some earlier post, the word ‘sakhi‘ here is not the Hindi word with the meaning – a lady friend. The word in the film title is an Urdu word that means – generous, munificent, a person who is liberal in giving to others. As you may be already guessing, and rightly so, this film is about the legendary thief Robin Hood, who steals from the rich and distributes to the poor.

In the annals of Hindi films, there are many films made on this legend. There is ‘Sakhi Lutera’ in 1934, then again in 1955 and then this one in 1969. We also have ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ in 1965 and then ‘Sakhi Robin’ in 1962. There may be more, I have done a quick search to locate these films.

This film is produced under the banner of Shahnaaz Films, Bombay and is directed by Rustom B Irani. The cast of this film is listed as Azad, Tabassum, Hercules, Chandrakala, Sheikh, Jaani Babu, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Ram Raseela, Habeeb, Sushma, Heeru Anand, Heera Sawant, Malik, Eruch Tarapur, Desai, Pintu, Toto, Haroon, Shafi, Daud, and Muhammad Sandow etc.

Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film. All songs are written by Aziz Ghaazi and the music is composed by BN Bali (aka Baldev Nath Bali). This song is sung by Krishna Kalle. On screen we see a very young Tabassum singing this song and trying to woo Azaad, who plays the role of Robin Hood. One of the films for which the video is available in public domain.

Enjoy this lovely song.

Song – Socha Hai Tum Se Pyaar Karun, Kya Khyaal Hai  (Sakhi Lutera) (1969) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Aziz Ghaazi, MD – BN Bali

Lyrics

socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

dil mein sama ke rehte ho
nazron se door door
ek baar muskura ke idhar
dekh lo huzoor
kadmon pe dil nisaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

tabeer kya ye sach hai
mohabbat ke khwaab ki
jo kuchh bata rahi hain
nigaahen janaab ki
main in ka aitbaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

maine to tum ko chaaha sanam
dil aur jaan se
hasrat yahi hai keh do kabhi
tum bhi zubaan se
kab tak ye intezaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai
socha hai tum se pyaar karun
kya khyaal hai
kaho ji
kya khyaal hai

kaho bhi na. . .

सोचा है तुमसे प्यार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है
सोचा है तुमसे प्यार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है

दिल में समा के रहते हो
नज़रों से दूर दूर
एक बार मुस्कुरा के इधर
देख लो हुज़ूर
कदमों पे दिल निसार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है
सोचा है तुमसे प्यार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है

ताबीर क्या ये सच है
मोहब्बत के ख्वाब की
जो कुछ बता रही हैं
निगाहें जनाब की
मैं इनका एतबार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है
सोचा है तुमसे प्यार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है

मैंने तो तुमको चाहा सनम
दिल और जान से
हसरत यही है कह दो कभी
तुम भी ज़ुबान से
कब तक ये इंतज़ार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है
सोचा है तुमसे प्यार करूँ
क्या ख्याल है
कहो जी
क्या ख्याल है

“Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) was directed by Naseem for Pushpaanjali Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Shammi Kapoor, Jabeen Jalil, Anwar, Achla sachdev, Nazeer Hussain, Ifthikhar, Radhika, Hammad, Manohar, Prem Sagar, Nirmal, Poonam, Heera, Shashibalka, Shujaat, Pyare, Sooraj etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered. Here are the details of these five songs:-

Here is the sixth and final song from “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) to appear in the blog. The song is basically sung by Asha Bhonsle with some humming by a male voice. Left to my own devices, I would have guessed that Shammi Kapoor himself has done the humming, but HFGK informs us that this song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Agha Sarwar who was assistant music director of this movie. HFGK also informs us that the record of the song only contains the name of Asha Bhonsle.

I think that the song is an Asha Bhonsle solo but since HFGK contains the name of the male hummer so let us go with HFGK and treat this song as a duet song.

The song is picturised on Jabeen Jaleel who is seen wooing Shammi Kapoor in a beach (Chaupati, I guess).

Vishwamitra Adil is the lyricist.

Two songs in the movie were composed by Jaidev and remining four songs were composed by Bipin Baabul. This song is a Bipin Baabul composition.

With this song, “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

This song also becomes the 500th song from Hindi movies that were released in the year 1959. “Raat Ke Raahi”(1959) becomes the 50th movie of 1959 to be YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Remembering today a producer- director who started his career in Bollywood in the year 1948. Our in-house encyclopaedia has already enlightened us that this was as a writer for an AR Kardar film of Filmistan. The other Filmistan movies that carry his name as writer are ‘Anarkali’ (1953), ‘Munimji’ (1955), and ‘Paying Guest’ (1957).

Recently Zee Classic ran a series which was hosted by the writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar called ‘Classic Legends’ which tried to give an insider’s view on the legendary film personalities. I happened to see the episode which featured this writer- producer- director or to put it in one phrase “Film Maker”.  Javed Saab talked about the various genres under which films are made in India and said that this particular film-maker made movies in a genre called ‘Rom-Com Musical’.

The person whom we are remembering today on his 15th death anniversary – Nasir Hussain, was one who thought up this kind of entertaining movies. But then we had ample doses of romance and comedy in all movies made in India and music is a must for our movies be they suspense thrillers or murder mysteries, or even vendetta movies.

Nasir Hussain gave us all these ingredients in equal measure in many of his movies. So, what if ‘Yaadon Ki Baarat’ (1973) was vendetta of a boy who witnessed his parents’ murder. We still had seven songs in the movie of which 3 were romantic. Similarly, ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) had Asha Parekh trying to solve her sister’s death – so, it can be called a murder mystery. This movie too had 6 songs of which 2 were pure romantic numbers and one was a total comedy, in addition to all the situational comedy that kept occurring through the movie. Then he also made movies where the family gets separated in the first few minutes and then the poor protagonist -simply put ‘the hero’ – goes through the paces of the movie trying to look for his lost mother or father, wooing the wealthy heiress, singing a few songs in the process etc. Almost all of Nasir Hussain’s movies followed the same story in the sixties. He changed his storyline somewhat for ‘Caravan’ (1971) and ‘Bahaaron Ke Sapne’ (1967), later on in the mid-eighties we had ‘Manzil Manzil’ (1984) with the story of a separated family coming back together in the climax. The later part of the seventies had two Nasir Hussain movies with only romance and songs as their backbone – ‘Hum Kisise Kam Nahin’ (1977) and ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai’ (1981).

There were a few constants in Nasir Saab’s movies namely – Majrooh Sultanpuri, Asha Parekh, Rajendranath, and a character that used to walk-in swinging a racquet calling himself Subodh Mukherjee. Of course, from the 1966 ‘Teesri Manzil’ RD Burman was his constant for music direction, an association that lasted for almost 19 years till the 1984 ‘Zabardast’. Even when his son Mansoor Khan took over the direction of movies of Nasir Hussain Films ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ (1988) and ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar’ (1992) Nasir Saab continued to write the script and dialogues. He was possibly the first to have back-to-back songs or four songs-in-a-row kind of situations – remember “Megha Re Bole Ghanan Ghanan” and “Bade Hain Dil Ke Kaale” (film ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, 1959). “Aap Ke Kamre Mein Koi Rehta Hai” (‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’, 1973) had three parts to it.  And then of course the foursome “Chaand Mera Dil“, “Aa Dil Kya Mehfil Hai Tere”, “Tum Kya Jaano Mohabbat Kya Hai” and “Mil Gaya Hum Ko Saathi” came all together in ‘Hum Kisise Kam Nahin’ (1977).

On going through the list of Nasir Hussain’s movies posted on our blog I find that many of his movies have already been Yippeee’d. ‘Hum Kisise Kam Nahin’ has been shown as having 5/6 songs posted. On reviewing the list, I found that the one song from the four-song medley has been posted. Which means it is not 5/6 but 5/9 posted.

Let us enjoy this second song from the dance competition medley. Not in this clip, but towards the end of the this four song medley, Amjad Khan also makes an entrance into this scene.

Thank you Nasir Saab for leaving us enjoyable movies

As noted in the past, “Chaar Paise”(1955) was not released, still the prints of the movie are available. The video of the songs of the movie are also available.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Chaar Paise”(1955) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Lata. Sartaj Rahmani is the lyricist. Music is composed by B D Burman.

Picturisation shows that it is a roothhna-manaana song with roles reversed. Here Kishore Kumar is sulking and the lady is trying her best to appease Kishore Kumar, with her singing accompanied by dancing, of course.

The lady is not Shyama, so going by the cast, I guess her to be Nishi. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

It is a delightful sulking-appeasing song, and if I understand the mechanism of such songs correctly that Kishore Kumar would respond favourably by the time the song ends. 🙂

With this song, “Chaar Paise”(1955) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Shamma parwaana shamma parwaana (Chaar Paise)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sartaj Rahmani, MD-B D Burman

duniya mein hai paagal premi

ek deewaani ee
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana

jiska saajan roothh gaya ho
aakar prem dwaare

jiska saajan roothh gaya ho

vo dukhiyaari preet ki maari
ro ro rain guzaare
ro ro rain guzaare
roz sunaaya jaata hai
ye dard bhara afsaana aa
ek deewaani

shamma parwaana

khel samajh kar prem se khele
duniya phir pachhtaaye ae
duniya phir pachhtaaye
khel samajh kar prem se khele
duniya phir pachhtaaye
khel nahin ye prem hai pagle
jaan bhi ismein jaaye
jaan bhi ismein jaaye
donon mohabbat karne waale
dete hain nazraana
ek deewaani
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana
shamma parwaana
ho
shamma parwaana aa
ek deewaani
ek deewaana

Missing Films of 1960s – 58
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

1966 and 1967 appears to be very fertile years, as far as discovering obscure films and songs is concerned. I start searching for the films from these years, and I continue finding films and songs that seem to have been lost in time. A good number of them have already appeared online in one form or another. But there is still a good set that seem to be as yet unavailable online.

Today’s film – ‘Sheba And Hercules’ from 1967, is one of them. After some earlier comments from some readers on the blog and also some followers on YouTube, which corrected my statement about the song being posted for the first time, I try to be more cautious, and apply more effort to search the song before posting. So for this song today, I searched using many different options, but I am not able to trace any song of this film online. But I do not claim that the song is making a debut online, because I have been held in error of such statements before. So I will say that as far as my searches could show, I did not find this film and this song online as yet.

The name of the film itself indicates an obscure and a lost film. As dear Arun ji has also noted in one of his articles earlier, we can depend on the producers of Hindi films to create links across histories and across geographies; even to the extent of combining factual history and fictional characters. This endeavor to connect and to integrate disparate persona, events and aeons, is really ‘commendable’ – these producers and these films are working towards not just national integration, but also international integration. These producers deserve a big applause for their effort. 🙂

Case in point is this film. I am going by the title – since I have no clue as to the content and the storyline of the film. Hercules is a Roman God whose stories are part of the Roman Mythology. Incidentally, in Greek mythology also, a similar Hero/God appears, with a slightly altered name – Heracles. There are many similarities in the stories of these two, across these two cultures.

Queen Sheba is very much a historical persona, whose details are found in Biblical history, and from there connects are found in Jewish and Islamic history also. There is archaeological evidence that also supports this historical records. Sheba was the Queen of the kingdom of Saba – area in the southern Arabic peninsula that is current day Yemen. Her historical record is contemporaneous with King Solomon, who was the king of Israel in circa 970-931 BC. There is a detailed record of Queen Sheba’s visit to Israel, accompanied by a grand retinue, and of bringing many gifts of spices, dry fruits and other items, loaded on camels. The Jewish history records that the spices brought by Queen Sheba were of the type never seen and used before in Israel. There is a record of their conversations, in which Sheba asks many questions from Solomon, who is considered to be the wisest man who ever lived on this earth. After being satisfied with the answers she receives, she returns to her lands. Historians have recorded this visit as one of the earliest examples of a trade and cultural exchange delegation going from one nation to another.

But I digress. The point I am trying to arrive at is the these two mythological / historical personae – Hercules and Sheba – could never have possibly been contemporaneous in person. However, still, the producers of Hindi films have found a happy meeting ground for these two, in the film titled ‘Sheba And Hercules’. I would request other readers and friends to please add some information about the storyline of this film.

The film is a costume drama produced under the banner of Meena Films, Bombay and is directed by BS Chaudhry. The star cast includes Randhawa, Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Heeralal, Kamal Mehra, Tuntun, Rajan Kapoor, Trilok Singh, and Saudagar Singh amongst others. Geet Kosh tells us that there are six songs in this film. All songs have been written by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and the music is by a gentleman named Chandan. Now this is a name that I have not encountered before. As I tried to look through the Geet Kosh, I am not able to locate any other reference to this name as a music director. Quite likely, this person, as many others who have given music in one or two films, would probably have been an assistant music director, and then got a chance to try his hand as an independent artist. But after one outing, did not get any more work in the industry.

The singing voice in this song is of Krishna Kalle. This is a song of ‘expression of love’, in which the lady is expressing her magnanimity that she is a benefactor, and that as a favor unto him, she has fallen in love with the gentleman to whom this song is being addressed. Now that is quite a thought. 🙂

So with this song, the film ‘Sheba And Hercules’ makes a debut on our blog. And so does the music director Chandan. I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film, and the music director.

Song – Jaao Ji Tum Pe Hum Merbaan Ho Gaye  (Sheba And Hercules) (1967) Singer – Krishna Kalle, Lyrics – Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD – Chandan

The Yippeee film for today is the 1969 ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’. Belonging to the B/C grade thriller cum social category, the film is produced under the banner of Ashok Films, Bombay, and is directed by Devraj. The star cast of the film includes Dev Kumar, Sonia Sahni, Shahida, Dev Dutt, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Murad, Rajan Haksar amongst others.

The film is a variation on the traditional lost-and-found theme. The variation in this case is that a child is lost; later on he grows up to be a criminal and then found by the parents. The story line is summarized as follows,

Dev Kumar is a bad character, and is on the run from the police. He is the long lost son of Murad and Mridula Rani, who have been searching for him for years, based on the description of a locket that the child was wearing when he got separated from his parents. The child has grown up into a criminal, and actually he knows he is the son of Murad. But because he is a criminal, he refuses to go back to his parents, for the fear of bringing bad name to them. Murad and his family also suspect this to be true, but are not certain.

To reach his son, Murad plans a way to trap him, with the help of police. The criminal son is in love with Sonia Sahni. Murad arranges a stage show in which he brings Sonia Sahni to perform a dance. The plan is put in place, with the expectation that Dev Kumar will find some way or the other come to the program to watch his beloved. The expected happens. Dev Kumar enters the theatre in disguise, but then removes it once he is inside. The police inspector Rajan Haksar is watching the audience and he locates Dev Kumar. By the time the performance comes to an end, he is enters the box section where Dev Kumar is sitting, and takes him into custody. The film moves towards a happy-ending as Rajan Haksar takes the criminal Dev Kumar, not to the police station but to Murad’s residence. After all is sorted out and everybody is happy, the inspector then takes the criminal with him, saying that he will try for a pardon or a light sentence for him.

The film has five songs listed, one of which is a multi version song that appears two times in the film, once as a solo in Rafi Sb’s voice and the second time as a solo in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. The 4+1 songs already posted on the blog are listed as under,

Apne Naam Ke Kareeb Mera Bhi Naam Likh Lo 3712 30-Mar-11 Mohammed Rafi
Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchaan Jaate 5935 7-May-12 Mohammed Rafi
Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchaan Jaate 5935 7-May-12 Lata Mangeshkar
Na Jaane Peer Dil Ki Bepeer Baalma 9905 14-Jun-14 Lata Mangeshkar
Raat Ke Andhere Mein 14039 09-Feb-28 Asha Bhosle

In the Geet Kosh listing, it is indicated as if some more songs may be in the film. However, Atul ji, while posting the penultimate song of this film, had done a fast-forward review of the film, and confirms that the 5+1 songs listed in the Geet Kosh are the only songs in the film, and no more.

This is one of the very few films that Prem Dhawan has written the songs, as well as composed the music for. I have written about this in the two earlier posts of the songs of this film, listed at number 1 and number 4 above.

The songs of this film are a veritable treat for the aficionados. Almost all the songs became very popular in their time and were frequently heard on the radio waves. “Apne Naame Ke Kareeb. . .”, the two versions of “Agar Bewafa Tujhko Pehchan Jaate” and the stage dance song “Na Jaane Peer Dil Ki. . .” have been some the all time favorites of the listeners.

Today’s song is a duet, or maybe a so-called duet, in the voices of Rafi Sb and Usha Timothy. I say ‘so-called’, because in the song, most of the singing is done by Rafi Sb, and Usha Timothy just gets to add the words “thoda thoda” once in each refrain. So literally speaking, it is “thoda thoda” contribution by her to this song. On screen, the song is picturized on Dev Dutt and Shahida.

This song too, is a delightful offering, maybe lesser known in comparison to its more popular siblings in this film. But still a pleasure to listen to. Enjoy.

And plus let us celebrate the film ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’ joining the list of films with all songs posted, on the blog. Cheers.

 

Song – Hothon Pe Inkaar Thoda Thoda  (Raat Ke Andhere Mein) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Usha Timothy, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan

Lyrics

o sangdil haseena
maathe pe kyon paseena
pathar bhi pighalte hai
dekha tha ye kabhi na

ke hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda
haan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

itne burey hum nahin
ke aankhen churaao
katra ke yun na chalo
na daaman bachaao
ik din kisi pe to aayega dil
ik din koi le ke jaayega dil
kar lo hameen pe aitbaar
thoda thoda
haan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

hota na hum se jo pyaar
to kyon sharmaate
chhup chhup ke yun meri jaan
tum milne na aate
mil ke nazar yun hi jhukti nahin
ye wo lagi hai jo chhupti nahin
tera bhi dil hai beqaraar
thoda thoda
haan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

milne ki hai aarzoo
to kaisi ye doori
teri meri dastaan
rahe na adhoori
kab tak akele mera dil jaley
tadpaane waale aa lag ja galey
mil jaaye hum ko qaraar
hahn thoda thoda
haahan
hothon pe inkaar
thoda thoda
aankhon mein iqraar
thoda thoda
tu maane na maane
tujhe bhi to hum se hai pyaar
thoda thoda

ओ ओ

ओ संगदिल हसीना
माथे पे क्यों पसीना
पत्थर भी पिघलते हैं
देखा था ये कभी ना

के होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

इतने बुरे हम नहीं
का आँखें चुराओ
कतरा के यूं ना चलो
ना दामन बचाओ
इक दिन किसी पे तो आएगा दिल
इक दिन कोई लेके जाएगा दिल
कर लो हमीं पे एतबार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

होता ना हमसे जो प्यार
तो क्यों शर्माते
छुप छुप के यूं मेरी जान
तुम मिलने ना आते
मिल के नज़र यूं ही झुकती नहीं
ये वो लगी है जो छुपती नहीं
तेरा भी दिल है बेक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा

मिलने की है आरज़ू
तो कैसी ये दूरी
तेरी मेरी दास्तान
रहे ना अधूरी
कब तक अकेले मेरा दिल जले
तड़पाने वाले आ लग जा गले
मिल जाये हमको क़रार
हाहं थोड़ा थोड़ा
हाहाँ
होठों पे इंकार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
आँखों में इक़रार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
तू माने ना माने
तुझे भी तो हमसे है प्यार
थोड़ा थोड़ा
