# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 6 # Yesudas #
———————————————–———————————–——————

I recall listening to a song frequently on radio when I was around seventh or eight years old. The voice was very attractive and it had something special which captivated my young mind then.
There was one Mr. Abu who held from Kerala and was my Father’s friend (may be because of their drinking habits 🙂 residing in the same colony). He used to praise this new Singer a lot and liked his songs very much. My Father had even started learning ‘Malayalam’ from him and he had started learning how to write ‘Malayalam’ words too 🙂 in register.

As years passed and we were getting more and more memorable songs from this Singer though the quantity was not that much as compared to the other established singers in HFM.

Still, the songs coming from his voice were gaining popularity as well as it were creating a special place in the hearts of people, as the movies he was singing in were also coming from directors from special genre who were making off-beat movies then in the era already dominated by multi-starrer movies.

Nevertheless, the songs were adding to the list of ‘all time memorable songs’ and ‘nostalgia’ for peoples like me …

Today this singer turns to seventy-nine. He was born on in kerala.

I will not go into his biography in details because it has been covered in two of earlier posts on the blog.

Instead I will give below the name of the movies he sings in from 1971 since his debut in an ‘un-released’ Hindi movie, but compiled up to 1980 only, since I have the Geet Kosh for this period available with me.

Though our today’s Singer keep singing till recently in Hindi movies. But if we come to his statistics Hindi movies, we will not be able to judge his extra-ordinary talent and the ‘divine’ presence he has left by singing nearly fifty thousand songs in many national and international languages in his career spanning fifty years!!

He has been honoured with many national awards in singing as well as been conferred upon with our national civilian awards too and the list of awards is so BIG that one can only imagine his extra ordinary contribution to music as well as the society in turn…

I think, one who has grown up in the years of seventies can never ever forget this voice and those beautiful lovely songs …

Let us now start my journey through his songs …

Or let me remind you of this non-filmy song first … ‘teesta nadi si tu chanchalaa, main bhi hoon bachpan se manchalaa’

Our today’s singer is the male voice in this song (though the other voice i.e. the female voice too is ‘nostalgic’ for me … 

‘Gori teraa gaaon badaa pyaara’ – it was ruling the charts in 1976 and even after forty two years it is the same, even the new generation likes it when they get to listened to it..
But my favorite at that time was the other one from the same movie ‘Aaj se pehle ae aaj se jyadaa’ .

‘Jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan’ from ‘Chhotisi Baat-1975’ had already stolen people’s hearts and their eyes open to read and learn more about this male voice in this song …

Two years later he was in a rebellious still melodious mood when he sings ‘Kitaabon mein chhaptein hain chaahat ke kisse’

Then who will ever forget ‘sunayna sunayna’ .

The same year he was praising his beloved with ‘chaand jaise mukhde pe’.

However, the one close to my heart and growing every time for all these years is ‘tere bina soona more man ka mandir aa re aa re aa’

A year before in 1978 his ‘dil ke tukde tukde kar ke muskuraa ke chal diye’, was also keep us mesmerised (but I was not liking much then, till I became a fully grown up adult 🙂 )

And as the years passed this list also keep adding on and on …

‘ka karu sajni ee’
‘kahaan se aaye badraa’
‘madhuban Khushboo deta hai’
‘maana ho tum behad haseen’

From the early eighties I like;

‘beeti huyi raat ki sunaati hai kahaani’

‘dheere dheere subah huyi’

I can keep listing many many of his favourites of mine but I have to stop …
And as I was browsing his filmography, I was reminded of this lovely number … just to refresh the memories of yours too;

‘jeewan path pe ek rath ke do pahiye ban chalte jaayen’

I cannot stop without mentioning these two;

‘Shyaam rang ranga re’
And
‘Shadaj ne paaya ye vardaan’

(in HFGK Vol V I could not find the name of this UR movie ‘Tansen’ or maybe I have missed it…)

Then I remember I had specially brought his ‘non-filmy’ album ‘Sitaaron mein tu hi’ in 2000-2001 (when I was in Bareilly. I do not have cassette with me to mention more about it here)

But I have to stop here and presenting this article in this series a little differently I will leave you with the list of movies he sung from 1971 to 1980;

(** details not available about number of songs of each Singer)

Other than this he has sung in many languages (national and international) and that way the ‘madhuban’ of his ‘gaayaki’ will always be remain blossomed all over and let the ‘Madhuban’ of his songs and those unforgettable memories be with us forever till we are here and for the coming generations too- unki gaayki ka ye Madhur-sumadhur-mehakta huaa madhuban hamesha geeton se chhalakta rahega’

Kattassery Joseph Yesudas” or Yesudas as we fondly know him …
(born on 10th January’ 1940)

Bas naam hi kaafi hai!!! Is naam ke ‘parimandal’ mein hi ‘swarg’ hai …

“Pyaare panchhi baahon mein
Gaati koyal raahon mein
Dharti pe yahi to khushi hai
Apni duniya mein aansoo bhi nahin hai”

‘Safed Jhoothh’ was directed by Basu Chatterjee for ‘Matrichhaaya, Bombay’. (this was the first movie by ‘Matrichhaaya’). Basu Chatterjee also wrote the Screenplay and dialogues of this movie.
It was presented by Raj Rajpal. It was produced by Asim Kumar.

It had Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Mitthu Mukherji, Deven Verma, Vidya Sinha, Manik Dutt, Abu Shivani, Amol Sen, Khalid Roy, Devraj Sinha, Prabir Roy, Somnath Pardesi, Pradeep Mukherji, Milan Mukherji, Vinay Chhibbar, Arup Ganguly, Umesh Kaalbag and many others.

This movie introduced new discovery Renuka.
Pradeep Kumar and Amol Palekar makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Samresh Basu. Editing of this movie was done by V.N. Mayekar.

Music of this film was composed by Shyamal Mitra. And all the four songs in this movie were penned by lyricist Yogesh.
Asha Bhonsle, Shyamal Mitra and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Yesudas and the movie ‘Safed Jhoothh’ is making a debut on this blog with this lovely song …

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1977.

Let us enjoy this song wishing Yesudas ji a very very happy birthday (albeit a day later) and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Lyrics for this song were sent by Peevesie’s Mom ji and I remember many times in her comments she mentions that ‘how the die-hard fans’ can forget an anniversary of their beloved actor/actress or Singer, so … yes Yesudas fans can never forget this nostalgic gem 😊

Thank you, Peevesie’s Mom ji!!!

Going by the association of Yesudas with the movies of Basu Chatterjee, I think, this song perfectly fits for this presentation here …

(And I must thank both of our editors who patiently waited for my sending of this article to them. It took time for me to compile the filmography going through each page of HFGK except the appendices and corrigendum. I cannot claim that the list given by me is exhaustive and corrections/suggestions are most welcome.

‘Zid na karo’ aisa khayaal to aaya, but since I had planned that for this article on Yesudas ji I will at least try to give the filmography of his songs from 1971 to 1980, so I have tried my best…)

(note – I have noted the lyrics as per the movie version + audio version)

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie’s Mom)

Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Har ghadi din rainaa aa aa
Chain ab aaye naa
Man kahe mera saathi ee ee
Ab kahin jaaye naa
Ye milan mein khoyi
Ab naa shaam dhaley ae ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
do yahaan saathhi miley
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Zindagi mein aise ae ae ae
Din kabhi aate hain
Rasmon ke bandhan mein ae ae
Meet bandh jaate hain
Phir mehak uthhte hain
Tan ke phool khile ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले ए

Today’s song is from the film Nai Duniya-42. The film was made by Circo productions of Chimanlal Trivedi and was directed by A R Kardar, with music by Naushad Ali.

Naushad was my favourite composer. Having come up from scratch to the zenith of popularity and fame, he had put in lot of hard work in early days of his career. Naushad may or may not be the best Composer the HFM ever had, but he certainly was a good example of Rags to Riches story of Filmy Duniya. He rose from the footpath and became one of the most successful composers ever in Hindi Films. Added to this was his good nature, Lucknowi Tahzib and hard work. This made him a man with least enemies ( competitors-yes, but enemies-No ) and on whose name alone films were sold during his peak period.

Naushad was the only composer on whom 6 Documentaries were made. A student Ms.Mala Sinha secured her Ph.D., making Naushad as a subject of her research. Starting with Rs.40 a month, Naushad was the First to demand and get Rs.ONE LAKH per film and was also the first composer to build his own Bungalow in a posh locality of Bombay with a Music room for doing rehearsals.

When he was on the Top, a trailer of film “Dastaan”-1950 featured Naushad on the screen showing crowds shouting ” 40 karod mein ek hi Naushad “. Such was his saleability that A R Kardar, who had always used Naushad for his own gains, was forced to make Naushad his partner in producing films under their banner ” Musical Pictures .

Naushad was undoubtedly the most successful composer HFM ever had. Out of the 65 films that he did in Hindi, 50% had celebrated jubilees. This is a record unmatched so far. His tally was 3 Diamond Jubilees ( Rattan, Baiju Bawra and Mughal-e-Azam ), 6 Golden Jubilees ( Mela, Andaz, Deedar, Aan, Mother India and Gunga Jamuna ) and 23 Silver Jubilees (Station master, Sharda, Namaste, Sanjog, Pehle aap, Kanoon, Keemat, Sanyasi, Anmol Ghadi, Shahjehan, Natak, Dard, Anokhi Ada, Dillagi, Dulari, Babul, Dastaan, Jadoo, Diwana, Udan Khatola, Kohinoor, Mere Mehboob and Ram aur Shyam ).

Naushad was the First winner of Filmfare Award in 1954 for a song in Baiju Bawra. The Award Ceremony was held in Broadway Theatre, Bombay. Ironically, it was bang opposite this Theatre that Naushad had spent his struggling days and Nights on the Footpath ! Naushad recieved several cherished Awards like Dadasaheb Phalke Award, Padma Bhushan, Lata Mangeshkar award, Maharashtra Bhooshan award, Sahitya and Natak Academy award, Saraswati Award, the IFJ and BFJ awards and scores of other awards.

His first 4 films ( Premnagar-40, Kanchan-41, Mala-41 and Darshan-41), however, were with unimpressive music. From the film Sharda-42, his Luck started changing and then there was no looking back at all for the next 25 successive years. This is exceptional talent and unbelievable Luck.

I see 2 reasons which made him successful. One was his hard work. He never ever compromised on rehearsals and however big the singer was (read Lata) he/she had to come to his Music room for rehearsals on a song for at least 7 to 8 days. He never recorded a song unless he was satisfied fully. Secondly, Naushad had tremendous faith and liking for Indian Classical music, which he used extensively in his songs. Almost all his songs had a classical base and he proved that classical music can be made entertaining for the masses, who could not make a difference between 2 Ragas, but would like his simple and hummable tunes. Very rarely his songs were difficult to hum or sing in the bathroom. He always selected singers based on their suitability for the songs.

After a draught of success, Naushad entered the year 1942. Nai Duniya was his 5th and final film before he began his Success Marathon of jubilees. Out of the 3 films in 1942, his other two films Sharda and Station Master celebrated Silver jubilees. It was only this film-Nai Duniya-which did not celebrate a Jubilee, but this film was no less important and it was a Milestone in the history of HFM.

It was in this film that noted actress singer Suraiyya sang her First recorded film song,as Baby Suraiya ( Boot karoon main polish). I have been seeing that there is a lot of confusion about the Debut song of Suraiya as a playback artiste.

Some people claim that the song ‘ Boot karun mai polish’ from film Nai Duniya-1942 is her first song as a Playback singer and some people claim that the song ‘ Panchhi jaa peechhe raha hai bachpan mera’ from film Sharda-1942 is her debut song as a playback singer.
Naushad himself,in one of the interviews , had said that the Nai Duniya song was her first recorded song as a playback singer.
However, Naushad saab is only partly correct. No doubt this song was recorded earlier ( No. N-26055) and the Sharda song was recorded later (No. N-26099).

Both the films were censored in 1942 only. However film Sharda was released first on 23-1-1943 at Minerva Talkies in Bombay, whereas Nai Duniya was released only on 24-4-1944 at Majestic Talkies in Bombay.

Therefore, the Debut song of Suraiya, as a Playback singer is undoubtedly the Sharda song,namely ‘ Panchhi jaa,peechhe raha”.
Only when a song is released on screen , it is called a Debut song, irrespective of when it was recorded.
The dictionary meaning of “to Debut” is- to perform in public for the first time. Since Sharda song was shown to public first, it becomes Suraiya’s Debut song as a Playback singer.

The song from Nai Duniya-“Boot karoon main polish” at best can be called as “the first recorded song for playback”. The Debut song ‘Panchhi jaa peechhe raha’ was posted by Atul ji on 21-2-2011 here.
( Release dates received with thanks from shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji)

This was also the first movie in which Kardar and Naushad came together. Kardar,in fact, was so much impressed with Naushad’s work style, that he decided to employ Naushad, in Kardar Productions ( which he was about to start soon), as a paid composer for Rs. 500 pm. Naushad,on his part, was very happy that he got into a job, which would ensure a sure income every month.

Later this pair gave film after films successfully. Naushad worked with Kardar for 14 films, excluding films made under the banner of Musical Pictures-in which Naushad was an equal partner with Kardar. Nai Duniya was a Circo production ( Cine Industries Recording Company, owned by Chimanlal Trivedi) and Kardar was only a Film Director for this company. Soon this Circo came up for sale. Kardar bought it to start his production company. He also established a studio in the premises. Kardar made a contract with Naushad for 5 years,but he was allowed to work outside,though the first priority would be Kardar films. Even otherwise also,Naushad restricted his films to 2 to 3 per year,as his style of working needed a long time for rehearsals.

Naushad became a household name all over India after Rattan-44 However he worked in 4 films that year (Rattan,Geet,Jeevan and Pehle Aap.) Similarly in 1949 also he did 4 films (Dillagi, Andaz,Chandni Raat and Dulari). He did only one film each in a few years like for instance- in 1940-Premnagar, 45-Sanyasi, 53-Udan Khatola, 57-Mother India, 58-Sohni Mahiwal, 61-Ganga Jamuna, 62-Son of India, 63-Mere Mehboob , 64- Leader and in 70- Ganwaar.

Nai Duniya-42 was the First ever film produced by Naushad. Later,of course, he made few more films,though he was never at ease as a Producer. For Nai Duniya-42, singer G M Durrani was his chief Musical Assistant. The film cast was Shobhana Samarth,Mazhar Khan, Jairaj, Wasti, Azurie, Jeevan, Ram Awtar etc. Not many readers may know much about old actor Mazhar Khan ( there was another Mazhar Khan in 70s/80s). He was one of the most versatile actors who shifted from Hero’s roles to character roles easily. In Hindi films, the name Khan has always been present in plenty. From Wazir Mohd.Khan of Alam Ara-1931 to Shahrukh Khan of today, there were more than 50 Khans acting in Hindi films.

Mazhar Khan was born in 1907 in the princely state of Dhar in M.P. After Matriculation, he joined Police force due to his build and height, but soon he was fed up and resigned. He straightaway headed for Bombay looking for work in films. Director Durga Prasad Mishra took him in Imperial studio and he did about 19 Silent films starting with Challenge-1929. When Talkie films started, he went to Calcutta, joined New Theatres and worked with K L Saigal in ‘Subah ka Sitara’-1932. For East India Film co.,he did ‘ Ek din ka Baadshah-33’and Raat ka raja-34 in which he did 8 roles in the film. After a few more films, he returned to Bombay and worked in Ranjit and Minerva Movitone films. His career best role came in 1941 in Shantaram’s Padosi, in which he did the famous role of Hindu Friend Thakur, while Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of his Muslim friend. In the prevailing tense communal atmosphere in the country those days,this film was hailed as a milestone depicting life long friendship of a Hindu and a Muslim.

In 1942, he turned Director and did Meri Duniya-42, Yaad-42, Badi Baat-44, Pehli Nazar-45, Dil ki Duniya-49 etc. His noteworthy films were Noorjehan-32, Bharosa-40, Padosi-41 and Ulzan-42. This role was that of a Blind singer-like K C Dey. His last film was Usha Kiran-52. He died on 24-9-1950, before its release.

When you hear today’s song, first time after 1940,you will find that there is melody and Taal in this song. As if there was a transformation, from 1942 onwards, Naushad’s music underwent a sea change. No wonder,in those days people found these songs had easy tunes and a certain melody in them. Naushad’s journey towards success and popularity began with 1942 films.

Film Nai Duniya had 11 songs. 8 songs are already discussed here. Today’s song is the 9th song. This film had 3 songs exclusively by chorus. This was something most unlike Naushad’s style seen in later years. Naushad would have songs sung by 2-3 or even 4 singers( as in Mother India-57) at a time ,but at no time were there any chorus songs in his films exclusively. May be in this film he tried to emulate Anil Biswas who had a penchant for chorus songs in his films. In one of my earlier posts, I have discussed about the chorus songs of Anil Biswas. After this film,something happened to Naushad and suddenly from his next film Sharda-42, he started giving Hit films. These are some of the unexplained wonders of Hindi films. Here is the song….

Blog Day : 3828 Post No. : 14833

Today’s song is from film Hum kisi se kam nahin-77, made under the banner of Nasir Hussain films.

This is the 3rd consecutive song from the 70s that I am discussing. Do not wonder whether I have shifted sides- from writing on films of 30s and 40s to the 70s. Possibly, for the time being, this is the last one from this period. Actually, I have nothing against the musical or film aspect of the period 70s and beyond. It is only that, mostly they are not of my likings. Of course, I have always said that , ” Everything that was made before 70s was not all good, as much as everything made after 70s was not bad either.”

Good or bad depends upon the personal perceptions, because these are opinions. If you measure them on a scale- like say-durability, then it is measurable and no one can deny the durability quotient of old songs vis-a- vis songs after 70s. A lot can be said on this issue, but not today and not here. Anyway, to each his own !

Why do people like a movie ? If the correct answer was known to anybody, he would be a Trillionnaire in no time ! However, when this question is asked to a common man on the street, the answers one would get would be 1. Story is good. 2. Acting is good. 3. Music is good. 4. I like this Hero/Heroine and many such explanations. My observation is that Music and Songs is one major reason for a movie to be popular and successful. There are many examples like Albela-51, Baiju Bawra-52, Anarkali-53, almost all films of Saigal, most Noorjehan and Suraiya films and most films made by Producer, Director and Writer Nasir Hussain.

Nasir Hussain probably had received from God, the formula for successful films-for a short term use. Out of his 13 films, first 10 were hit films- primarily due to Romance and excellent music. It is said that being a script and story writer himself he used one story for all his films-with some variations, of course- and the time he changed the story his films became a flop. Shammi kapoor, whose sinking career took up turn because of the Nasir Hussain film ” Tumsa nahin dekha”-57, had once said, ” we have heard stories of Marwadis coming here with just one Lota and building empires. Here was a man who used one story for his films for 30 years and succeeded !”

Mohammed Nasir Hussain Khan aka Nasir Hussain was born on 2-2-1931 ( wiki says it is 16-11-1926) in Bhopal.His family was related to Maulana Abul Kalam Azaad. While studying in Lucknow University, he wrote several dramas for A.I.R., Lucknow. He even got First prize for 2 consecutive years in the University writing competition .( one of these stories were used to make film ‘ Baharon ke Sapne’). In 1948, he came to Bombay and joined Filmistan.

His first story was for film Shabnam-49, jointly with Qamar Jalalabadi. Independently he wrote story/screenplay/dialogues for Shabistan-51, Anarkali-53, Shart-54, Munimji-55 and Paying Guest-57. Then he wrote Tumsa Nahin Dekha and insisted to direct the film himself. Tolaram Jalan, the owner of Filmistan was not ready to give it to a New director, but when NH threatened to quit, he relented unwillingly but cut the film’s budget. Nasir took Shammi Kapoor ( who had given 9 flops in a row) and new comer Ameeta and made the low budget film Tumsa Nahin Dekha-57.

When Tolaram Jalan saw the film, he was not happy at all,but the film celebrated Jubilees in 30 cities in India. Nasir Hussain got Rs. 10000/- for the story and his salary for 8 months, Rs.8000/- a total of Rs 18000 for this successful film ! When his mentor Shashdhar Mukherjee left Filmistan, to start his own ‘ Filmalaya Studios’, Nasir also left. For this new company. he made Dil Deke Dekho- 59, introducing Asha parekh as New Heroine. The film was a Hit , but he got only Rs. 25000- . Nasir decided that only his own company can give him more money.

With just Rs. 10,000/- in pocket he established his own Nasir Hussain Films Ltd. and made ‘ Jab pyar kisise hota hai-61. Another Hit. Then he made Phir wohi dil laya hoon-63, Teesri manzil-66. Baharon ke sapne-67, Pyar ka Mausam-69, Carvan-71, Yadon ki baraat-73 and Hum kisise kam nahin-77.

For film Teesri manzil-66, the film started with Dev Anand as the Hero. After 2 reels’ shooting, Dev had some differences and he left the film. Shammi Kapoor was roped in. The film was directed by Vijay Anand and for the first time R D Burman was taken for providing Music. Later on Nasir Hussain, Majrooh Sultanpuri and RD Burman collaborated for another 5 films.R D Burman continued till 1985, doing in all 9 films for Nasir Hussain.

After his films in 1981,84 and 85 flopped serially, Nasir Hussain stopped direction and wrote screen play and dialogues for Qayamat se Qayamat taq-88 and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar-92. His nephew Amir Khan was launched in these films. Nasir Hussain died on 13-3-2002 after a Heart attack.

Actors Asha Parekh, Rajendra Nath , Sidhu, Malika and Krishan Mehta owe their career to Nasir Hussain. Shammi Kapoor ,a struggling actor was given a new identity by him & thanks to him, Shammi Kapoor reached at the pinnacle of popularity. Even Amita became a hit property overnight by the success of Tum Sa Nahin Dekha,

While he encouraged new comers, he did not forget the veteran actors ,who had passed their prime . Late B M Vyas ,who was getting roles only in period/religious/Arabian Night movies was chosen by Nasir Hussain for an important role in main stream movie Tum Sa Nahin Dekha. Old timer Wasti ,who regaled the audiences with his natural acting in Sanjog , Rattan, Pugree made in forties and many Punjabi & Hindi movies later on , was passing through a bad phase . Nasir honored him by offering the roles of substance in Dil Deke Dekho,Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai & Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon. He rekindled the fond memories of the forties ,when he signed actors of proven caliber like Rajinder Singh, Mubarak, Kanu Roy, Raj Mehra ,Mumtaz Ali , Surendra Nath & many more . Here I’ll specifically mention the name of Nasir Khan & Bharat Bhushan ,who were passing through the most difficult phase of their lives . The benign film maker Nasir took them in his movies Yaadon Ki Baraat & Pyar Ka Mausam respectively ,just to assure them that they have not been forgotten and the industry recognizes their contribution . It is my strong belief that it was the blessings of those grateful old timer actors ,which made Nasir Hussain so prosperous and successful.

Nasir Hussain had that typical story formula in most of his films of “overhearing” ! In Tumsa Nahi Dekha, Pran overhears about Shammi Kapoor arriving & after stealing Shammi Kapoor’s recommendation letter, introduces himself as Shankar (Shammi Kapoor) . In Dil Deke Dekho, JPKSHH & Pyar Ka Mausam, the heroes concerned, overhear the heroine speaking about a comedian’s arriving (mostly as a marriage candidate) & after packing the comedian back,the hero banks on the name of the comedian. In Teesri Manzil, Shammi Kapoor overhears Asha Parekh speak, that she has come there to take revenge on himself (Rocky) and implies to Asha & her friends that he is different person named Anil Kumar Sona .
Even though with this common formula in most of his films , all his movies did well at the theatre on the basis of good songs & music !

There was a letter from a reader, in Filmfare, which stated thus, ” It is not at all important to pay attention to that so-called Hindi movie critic group who always referred and called Nasir Hussain as man of the movie with Escapism themes all the time to make his movie at box office hit. Working men need to have some kind of entertainment after spending hours and hours in heaps of works and concerned chores. Naturally there grows the tendency to escape from daily reality by engaging in daydreaming, fantasy….and there comes Nasir Hussain with this magical stick plus his established style of screenplay writing and later directing evergreen chocolate hero viz. Dev Anand…rebellious Shammi Kapoor…smiling Joy Mukherjee….charming Shashi Kapoor….handsome Jeetendra….and there was all time beautiful dancing lady ever present in her gorgeous smile…Asha Parekh who worked with these heroes with her fresh enthusiasm. What else an ordinary cine goer wish to have while spending his money for a ticket at window ? Apart from main hero and heroine there were devoted character actors playing various parts . ”

The Hero of the film Hum kisise kam nahin-77 was Rishi Kapoor, born on 4-9-1952. His first entry through Mera Naam Joker-70 fetched him a Film fare award. His debut as a Hero in Bobby-73 also brought him an award from filmfare. He is one actor who is popular even after he retired from films-not fully though. A film The Body-2019, was just released last week, directed by Jitu Joseph.His son Ranbir Kapoor is carrying the Kapoor mantle very ably.

Rishi Kapoor aka Chintoo has some different records on his name. He is the only actor having had 45 different heroines with whom he was cast. He also worked with 20 New entrant Heroines in their Debut films. He was Hero to seniors like Shabana Azmi, Rekha, Rakhee and Hema ( she was launched by his father), then with Madhuri, Shridevi, Tina Munim and Raveena Tandon. He worked with Simi Garewal in film Karz-1980, after his first film Mera Naam Joker-70. Some of his New heroines were Dimple, Kajal Kiran, Bhavna Bhatt, Ashwini Bhave, Radhika, Farah, Vinita, Zeba, Divya, Naseem, Rukhsaar etc etc. He acted in 162 films and also directed 1 film-Aa ab laut chale-99. He lent his voice in 7 songs in 6 films.

Today’s song is a copy of the famous Abba song ” Mama Mia”. So be it, seeing the youthful Rishi and Kajal Kiran singing and dancing is a real treat, in this video. Enjoy….
( For this article I have used information from Yadon ki Baraat by S Kanekar, The Hindu, wiki, MuVyz, HFGK, article by M N Sardana ji in woh din yaad karo and my notes)

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 78 # Singer – Mahendra Kapoor #
—————————————————————————-

Today 9th January is the birth anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor (9 January 1934 – 27 September 2008). Had he been alive today he would have been eighty-five years old.

On today’s occasion here is a song from the 1972 movie ‘Maalik’ sung by Mahendra Kapoor and composed by Kalyanji -Anandji. Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan.

I have vague memories of watching this film on ‘Doordarshan’ and do not remember it now. In my childhood I had been hearing this song ‘Kanhaiyya Kanhaiyya Tujhe Aana Padega’ on loud speakers during the ‘Janmashtami’ festival. This song was very popular in those years. And after watching this movie ‘Maalik’ on ‘Doordarshan’ around 1983-1985, I came to know it was from this movie. However today on the occasion of birth anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor, I am presenting herewith another Krishna song from the same film.

‘Maalik’ was directed by A Bhim Singh for Bharat Movies, Madras. It was produced by Vasu Menon. It had Sharmila Tagore, Rajesh Khanna, Deven Verma, Sonia Sahni, Bipin Gupta, Shivraj, Umesh Sharma, NS Bedi, Prem Kumar, Kabir Kumar, Baby Pinki and Ashok Kumar (in a special appearance). Story for this movie was written by Balamurugan. Dialogues of this movie were written by Rajinder Krishan (who also wrote the lyrics for all songs in this movie). Editing of this movie was done by A Paul Doraisingam. NS Bedi was also the dialogue director of this movie. This movie was passed by the Censor Board on 26.10.1972.

Rajesh Khanna played a different role in this movie from what was expected from him then and that too when he was on the peak of his career. May be because of that the movie didn’t fare well at the box-office, and may be because people might not have like to watch Rajesh Khanna in this type of role.

Our group of friends then who were the fans of Rajesh Khanna, did not like this movie much when we watched it on ‘Doordarshan’ then in 1983-85. And I remember next day we had discussed this movie and Kaka’s role in it at length. (But that is the matter for another article on Rajesh Khanna series. 🙂

The brief about this movie ‘Maalik-1972’ as given on IMDB is as below;

Rajesh and Savitri are in love, and soon they get married. They soon realize that they have a number of differences, the main one being that while Rajesh is a devout Hindu and worships Lord Krishna, Savitri does not believe in God. This leads to a number of arguments, yet both continue on with their married life. Soon a child is born to them. Unfortunately, the child is born without hands and legs. Both are anguished by this, and decide to placate God by visiting various places of worship all over India, little knowing that the truth lies elsewhere.

This movie has total thirteen songs as listed in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). Out of these thirteen songs, the singer’s name has not been mentioned for one song. Out of the remaining twelve songs we have one solo sung by Kishore Kumar, one solo by Lata Mangeshkar, three solo songs sung by Mahendra Kapoor and seven duets of Mahendra Kapoor with Lata Mangeshkar. That way, including the multiple version songs we have Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in as many as ten songs in this movie.

There was one movie made with the same title as ‘Maalik’ in ‘1958’. Five songs from this 1958 movie are already posted on our blog.

Today ‘Maalik’ of 1972 makes its debut on the blog. Here is this first song from this movie appearing here which is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and chorus.

Let us now listen to the today’s song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and chorus.

Radhe Krishna bol mukh se
tero kya laage re mol

Song – Radhe Krishna Bol Mukh Se (Maalik) (1972) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishna, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Missing Films of 1960s – 90
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What a wonderful gem of a song this one is. The memory banks hold this from the radio listening days. Such a beautiful semi-classical creation, and also very popular in its time – I am amazed it has waited so long in the wings to make its place here on our blog.

The film is ‘Harishchandra Taramati’ from 1970. It is produced under the banner of Kala Mandal, Bombay and is directed by BK Adarsh. Star cast of this film is listed as Pradeep Kumar, Jaimala, Boby, BM Vyas, Jeevan, Shyama, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Bela Bose, Bipin Gupta, Helen, Madhumati, Jaishri Talpade, Tuntun, Sapru, Manorama, and Mehmood (Junior) etc.

The seven songs of this film are all written by Virendra Mishra and the music is created by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. The singing voice in this song is Lata ji, supported by chorus.

As I am checking the films from 1970, I came across this film, but it did not ring any bells at first. The mind is more familiar with the other film of same name from 1963, whose songs are penned by Kavi Pradeep. But then, as I checked the list of songs in this film, the mind sat up with a jerk when I read the title line of this song. All I could think of then was – WOW.

This song is such an exquisite creation, and such a pleasurable experience to listen. The opening verses simply capture the heart,

rimim jhimimwa
suno balamwa
naram garam hui saram
jhuke nainwa

For reference purposes, I checked the Raag-o-Pedia compiled by Shri KL Pandey. The listing informs us that this song is composed using three Raags – Bhairavi, Khamaaj and Malkauns.

As I started this post day before yesterday, I did not have access to the video of this song. Keen to know on whom this song is picturized, I started searching for this film. It turned out that although this film is more recent vintage than similar named films from 1952 and 1963, yet this one is more rare in terms of availability. After some messages exchanged with my other collector friends, I was able to secure the video clip of this song from one of them. The clip is not of good quality; it appears that it has been extracted from a VHS tape that has been over used. I have now uploaded this clip. Despite the poor quality, one can make out that this dance song is filmed on Helen, and a group of supporting dancers, and that Pradeep Kumar is the sole audience of this performance.

In the film, Pradeep Kumar plays the lead role of Raja Harishchandra. Sage Vishwamitra, who is jealous of his fame of truthfulness and righteousness, resolves to test the limits of Harishchandra’s good attributes. As the first step, he sends Menaka, the apsara from swarg lok to woo and enchant Harishchandra. Regulars will recall that Menaka is the same apsara whom Indra, the king of swarg lok, had sent to disturb the penance and meditation of Vishwamitra. In that episode, Vishwamitra had lost the battle, and was swayed by Menaka’s enchanting beauty. Now, he sends the very same apsara to sway the sensibility of Harishchandra. In the film, this episode is presented as a dream sequence.

Just listen to this song, as it makes its way through multiple ragas, all coming together for such a perfect listening experience. A wonderful re-discovery.

“Ek Naari Do Roop” (1973) was directed by Madhusudan for Cooperative Pictures Bombay. This “social” movie had Shatrughan Sinha, Rashmi, Asha Sachdev, Jr Mehmood, Ifthikar, Madan Puri, Nadira, Roopesh Kumar, Malika, Chaman Puri, Haneychhaaya, Sapru, Lalita Kumara, Maruti, Kajal, Rajni, Moolchand, Qureshi, Ranveer Raj, Subhash, Master Sheroo, Master Ratan, Master Cheekoo etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog. The iconic Rafi song, Dil ka soona saaz taraana dhoondhega was the first song from the movie to be covered on 31 july 2008. The second song from the movie was covered four years later in 2013, which was nearly six years ago !

Though the movie is best known for its iconic Rafi song, the other songs in the movie were also wonderful songs to listen to. In fact, when I played the remaining songs, each one of them sounded so pleasing to my ears that I wondered which song I should save for some special occasion. May be that is the reason why I have not been able to cover these songs in the blog.

Instead of any further procrastination, here is the third song from “Ek Naari Do Roop” (1973) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is theb lyricist. Music is composed by Ganesh.

The song is picturised on Rashmi (I guess) and Shatrughan Sinha, with another lady looking on from a distance. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the two ladies seen in the picturisation.

Listening to the song gives one a feeling that the tune resembles another song- and then one realises that the tune is same as the song Main tere ishq me mar na jaaun kahin(Loafer)(1973).

What is the reason for the resemblence ? Both songs were created in the same year. “Loafer”(1973) had music by Laxmikant Pyarelal, where Pyarelal was the brother of Ganesh. Both these movies had Gorakh (brother of Pyarelal and Ganesh) as music arranger. Loafer song was sung by Lata. So it was a special case of same tune being composed by one pair of brothers and sung by another pair of sisters. 🙂

The “Loafer”(1973) song became quite popular. The fact that the song was picturised on Mumtaz obviously had something to do with the popularity of that song. This “Ek Naari Do Roop” (1973) on the other hand was lip synced by an unknown lady who continued to remain unknown even after this movie.

PS-Our inhouse face recognition expert Prakashchandra points out that I had got my identification wrong. It is Asha Sachdev who lip syncs the song while Rashmi looks on from a distance. Prakashchandra also tells us that Rashmi marry Anil Dhawan.

This song is a nice song to listen to, on its own. The same is the case with the other two songs from the movie that remain to be covered. It may have taken more than ten years for three songs of “Ek Naari Do Roop” (1973) out of five to get covered. Now that I have noticed this fact, One can be sure that the remaining songs will find their way into the blog sooner rather than later. 🙂

Song-Zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho (Ek Naari Do Roop)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Ganesh

Lyrics

zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho
zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho
muskuraane se gham paas aata nahin
zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho
muskuraane se gham paas aata nahin
kya haqeeqat hai gulshan mein us phool ki
kya haqeeqat hai gulshan me us phool ki
jo bahaaron ka daaman sajaata nahin
zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho

wo fasaana bano jo kahe har jabaan
geet aisa bano jisko gaaye jahaan
wo fasaana bano jo kahe har jabaan
geet aisa bano jisko gaaye jahaan
dard ke saaz par jisko gaana pade
dard ke saaz par jisko gaana pade
aisa naghma koi gungunaata nahin
zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho

aane waale ghamon ka ho gham kis liye
hum karen apni aankhon ko nam kis liye
aane waale ghamon ka ho gham kis liye
hum karen apni aankhon ko nam kis liye
jo sitaara andheron se darta rahe
jo sitaara andheron se darta rahe
raushni ban ke wo jagmagaata nahin
zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho
muskuraane se gham paas aata nahin
zindagi mein sada muskuraate raho

Wonder pe Thunder !

Today’s song is from film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (1971). When I found that this very popular and famous song of the early 70s was yet to be covered in the blog, my first reaction was to disbelieve it. I was almost sure that there was some mistake. I scanned the entire ‘H’ alphabet film list, bur could not see this song under any heading. Then I checked the year wise and MD wise lists – with same result. I was wondering how this song has escaped from the keen eyes of our contributors, who are specialists in the songs of the 70s ! At the end of it, I even checked with Atul ji, who confirmed that the song, indeed, was yet to be covered by us. This was a bonanza for me.

This is one of the songs of RD Burman, which I liked very much. Comparatively, he was one of the new composers in those times – in my opinion – though he had already done about 40 films before ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (HRHK). In last few years I had liked few songs from his earlier films like ‘Parichay’ (1972), ‘Seeta aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Caravan’ (1971), ‘Kati Patang’ (1970) and ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966). However, he suffered in my hands, due to my biased view of film songs of the period of 70s and beyond and except few more songs of RD Burman, I never liked his music, which in general I felt, was too loud and mostly copied from other sources (see several U-Tube videos on this issue, as a proof). However, I concede that he was a worthy son of a worthy composer compared to some other composer-son composers and that his music was much better than theirs and that he lasted for a longer period, cut short only by his sudden death in 1994, at the age of 55 years.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle and chorus and its video shows that it was sung on screen by a Hippie Girl (Zeenat Aman) amidst a smoking Hippie crowd. Somewhere in the year 1966, I had visited Goa (Panaji) to participate in a conference. During my visit, we had 2 free days and we roamed around the beautiful beaches of Goa. Goa had been liberated from the Portuguese about 6 years back and the Indian tourists did not have enough time yet to spoil the beaches and cities of Goa. So we could really enjoy our trip. During our beach visits we saw many Hippie groups, behaving in a ‘who cares’ attitude on the beaches. No wonder, many of my colleagues took their photographs to show in their respective private circles. That was a time when the Hippie culture had spread around the world.

Hippie (also spelled hippy) people were members of a counter cultural movement during the 1960s and 1970s, that rejected the mores of mainstream American life. The movement originated on college campuses in the United States, and also spread to other countries. Hippies felt alienated from middle-class society, which they saw as dominated by materialism and repression, and they developed their own distinctive lifestyle. They favoured long hair and casual, often unconventional, attire, sometimes in ‘psychedelic’ colours.

Many males grew beards, and both men and women wore sandals and beads. Long flowing granny dresses were popular with women, and rimless granny glasses with both men and women. Hippies commonly took up communal or cooperative living arrangements, and they often adopted vegetarian diets based on unprocessed foods and practiced holistic medicine. Hippies tended to be dropouts from society, foregoing regular jobs and careers, although some developed small businesses that catered to other hippies.

Hippies advocated non-violence and love, a popular phrase being “Make love, not war,” for which they were sometimes called ‘flower children’. They promoted openness and tolerance as alternatives to the restrictions and regimentation they saw in the middle-class society. Hippies often practiced open sexual relationships and lived in various types of family groups. They commonly sought spiritual guidance from sources outside the Judeo-Christian tradition, particularly Buddhism and other Eastern religions. Hippies promoted the recreational use of hallucinogenic drugs, particularly marijuana and LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), in so-called head trips, justifying the practice as a way of expanding consciousness.

By the mid-1970s the movement had waned, and by the 1980s hippies had given way to a new generation of young people who were intent on making careers for themselves in business and who came to be known as yuppies (young urban professionals). Nonetheless, hippies continued to have an influence on the wider culture, seen, for example, in more relaxed attitudes toward sex, in the new concern for the environment, and in a widespread lessening of formality.

Film HRHK was Dev Anand’s idea. Initially, he wanted Zahida to become its Heroine. She, however rejected the offer when she learnt that in the film, she would be Dev’s sister – Jasbir. Dev Anand also wanted SD Burman to do the music. When Dada heard the original story, in which Zeenat falls in love with Dev, not knowing that he was her brother, Dada flatly refused the film and also advised Dev to change the story, as Indian public would be averse to an incest story. Eventually RD Burman was selected as MD.

Similarly, this song – “Dum Maaro Dum” was originally to be a duet of Usha Uthup and Lata Mangeshkar. Possibly Asha Bhosle, who was on the verge of leaving OPN and joining RD Burman (who had applied for a divorce with Rita –  his wife) scuttled the plan and the song came to Asha as a solo and another duet with usha Uthup. RD burman then changed the whole tune of the song, using Asha’s skill of singing in higher pitches.

All songs of this film became popular, especially “Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka Sabka Kehna Hai” and “Dum Maaro Dum” were heard everywhere. The lyrics of the song “Dum Maaro Dum” were very apt to indicate and describe the philosophy and frustration of the younger generation in that period –

duniya ne hum ko diya kya
duniya se hum ne liya kya
hum sab ki parvah karen kyun
sabne hamara kiya kya

All this clearly indicated what was eating the minds of young people.

Fortunately, 70s was the period when the Hippie culture was on decline worldwide. As such, this type of philosophy and such cult did not fit into the Indian mind set in any case. Therefore, this culture did not grow much here and had a natural end – like everywhere else in the world.

Two interesting anecdotes about this film. One, Dev Anand in his autobiography -“Romancing With Life “, published in 2007, had confessed that during this film, he had fallen in love with Zeenat. He was to make a confession to her, when he learnt that she had gone very close to Raj Kapoor. In one party, he also saw Raj kapoor hugging Zeenat and she was responding to him. Dev was disillusioned. He knew that Zeenat was keen to work in RK’s film ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’, and that all this was due to that only. He simply removed her thought from his mind.

Second is about the Burmans. In the program ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’, Pancham narrated that – “Papa used to go for morning walk everyday in Juhu. People recognised him and would say, look, SD Burman is going. One day he came back very excited. He told me, today people recognised me and said, Look RD Burman’s father is going. Papa was proud of me that my music in HRHK was famous and popular.”

Nandu Chawathe- a leading fiddler and violinist was associated with Pancham in those days. This person – Nandu Chawathe, was a guest in one of our get togethers of Atulites in Mumbai, thanks to one of our members Nitin ji Shah. He had played some songs on his violin in that meeting,  Chawathe says that Dev Anand was very much upset, when Asha replaced Lata and Pancham took time to compose the new tune for Asha Bhosle. The final product, however, pleased Dev Anand.

The story of the film, as given in wiki, is –

In the background of the rise of the International Hare Krishna movement in the 1970s, is a Montreal-based family of the Jaiswals, consisting of mom, dad, son, Prashant, and daughter, Jasbir. Due to differences, Mr and Mrs Jaiswal separate, leaving Jasbir with dad, and Prashant with his mom. Eventually Prashant and his mom travel to India, leaving father and daughter behind in Montreal. Mr. Jaiswal remarries, and brings his new wife to live in his home. Jasbir is told by her nanny that her mother & brother are dead. Back in India Prashant is sent to a boarding school and his father makes sure that none of Prashant’s letters reach Jasbir, so that it would be easy on her part to get over emotional trauma. Jasbir is upset with her inconsiderate step-mother and ignorant father who is deeply immersed in his business.

Years later, Prashant has grown up to be a pilot. He has received a letter from his dad that Jasbir, who had rebelled and left home, is now located in Kathmandu, Nepal, with a group of hippies. Prashant decides to find his sister and hopefully get her back to the family. When Prashant lands in Kathmandu he does not find Jasbir, but instead finds Janice, who is indeed his sister with a new name. Janice has no recollection of her childhood, and is always in the company of hippies spending most of her time consuming alcohol & drugs with them.

Janice lives with the hippies in the property rented out by local landlord Drona. Drona’s real business is stealing ancient artifacts from Kathmandu and selling it to foreign nationals. Michael, one of the hippies, is the one who does all the dirty work for him. Janice’s boyfriend Deepak misunderstands that Prashant is trying to woo Janice, hence they exchange a few blows every time they meet. Meanwhile, Drona has an eye on Shanti, a local salesgirl working in one of the shops owned by him. Shanti has feelings for Prashant which creates one more enemy for him. Later Prashant and Shanti elope and get married. At the same time a precious idol is stolen from local temple by Michael, which he hides in Janice’s house. Prashant secretly observes all this. Drona tries to frame Shanti for theft by secretly planting another stolen artifact in her house. Later he spreads the word that since the day Prashant has arrived idols are being stolen and he is stalking local girls.

The police commissioner is a friend of Prashant’s father, and has already received a letter stating the purpose of Prashant’s visit to Kathmandu. He suspects that Drona is trying to frame Prashant because he has married Shanti. He gets a search warrant for the entire property of Drona and recovers a diary which has contact details of his friends abroad who help him sell the stolen artifacts. The police also recover the stolen artifact from Shanti’s home, squarely blaming Prashant for it. Shanti is deeply hurt by this and looks around for Prashant. Prashant meanwhile is with Janice, trying to convince her that he is her brother, who she had been told dead long back. Michael overhears the conversation & conspires to put the blame on the brother-sister duo. Taking advantage of the situation Drona and Michael instigate the locals against Prashant by framing him for the theft and duping Shanti under pretext of marriage. The hippies and the locals are now ready to bash Prashant the moment they come across him.

When Prashant again tries to meet Janice, the hippies give him a solid thrashing. The police commissioner intervenes and Prashant is saved. At the same time the true face of Drona is uncovered and he meets his end trying to run away from police. Janice sees that both her parents have arrived to meet her and realizes that Prashant is indeed her brother. Janice is deeply hurt that her parents had to see her in this state. She runs away from them and commits suicide. In her suicide note she tells Prashant how deeply she loved him and she never intended him to find her in this state and suicide was the only way out for her.

‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’ (released on 9-12-1971) was a Landmark film for Navketan – a film production company, which could boast of a world record (yet unbeaten) that the company was run for 62 years by the same person who established it in 1949 ! The cult song “Dum Maaro Dum” became so popular that no function was complete without this song for the next 10 years! Enjoy this song here today…..

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 77 # Reena Roy’s Birth Anniversary #
———————————————————————————————————-

In my growing years, in the seventies, Hema Malini was the leading name among the actresses in the Hindi movies and she ruled the ‘screen’ in those years 1971-1980 and extended thereafter till 1986 if we can consider it.

During those years there were many other heroines on the Hindi Movie scene who lit up the screen with their presence and performances.

One of these names is ‘Reena Roy’, whose growth in her career coincided with the growth of people like me (those born in early seventies) in our lives. She made her debut in the 1972 movie ‘Zaroorat’. A year or more later in 1973 came her sizzling dance number ‘ab ke saawan mein jee darey’ in ‘Jaise Ko Taisa’ with actor Jeetendra’.

In 1975 one of her song from ‘Zakhmee’ ‘jalta hai jiya mera bheegi bheegi raaton mein’ with Rakesh Roshan also got some popularity.

Till 1976 she had acted in about twelve movies (as per her ‘filmography’ on ‘wiki’).

In 1976 there were six movies of her released viz. ‘Sangram’, ‘Gumraah’,’Barood’, ‘Naagin’, ‘Kaalicharan’ and ‘Udhar Ka Sindoor’.

With her role in ‘Naagin-1976’ she rose to the top and with the success of ‘Kaalicharan’ her pairing with Shatrughan Sinha became popular and both of them acted in many films thereafter.
She was nominated in the ‘best actress’ category for her role in ‘Naagin-1976’ which she lost to Rakhee in ‘Tapasya’. After ‘Nagin-1976’ she was nominated in the ‘best actress’ category for her role in the ‘1980 movie – Aasha’ which she lost again, this time to Rekha for her role in ‘Khoobsurat’.

In between she was declared winner of the ‘Filmfare’ award in the ‘best supporting actress’ category for her role in ‘Apnaapan -1977’ which she did not accepted citing the reason that the role in ‘Apnaapan’ was not a supporting role but was like a ‘lead role’.

For me, I would say that I liked her performances in all the movies that I have watched of her so far. I remember ‘Naagin-1976’, ‘Badalte Rishtey-1978’, ‘Jaani Dushman-1979’,’Yaari Dushmani-1979’,’Be-reham-1980’, then ‘Naseeb’, ‘Rocky’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan’ – all of 1981.

After that as a grown-up boy I watched her in ‘Main Intaqaam Loonga’, ‘Dard Ka Rishta’, ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ in 1982, and ‘Andhaa Kaanoon’. (In 1982 as many as fourteen of her movies were released (as per wikipedia)).

Then I watched her ‘Naukar Biwi Ka’ in 1983, ‘Raaj Tilak’, ‘Asha Jyoti’, in 1984 (I vaguely remember to have watched her ‘Intehaa-1984’ with Raj Babbar).
I watched ‘Baghaawat’ in 1985-86 and ‘Karmyogi-1978’ on video cassette around 1990 but do not remember it now.

‘Aasha-1980’ I watched on TV sometime around 1990-91 I think and ‘Kaalicharan-1976’ around 1999 on TV.
Well, I still have to watch many of her famous movies like ‘Arpan’, ‘Ghulami’, ‘Gautam Govinda’, ‘Jwaalamukhi’, ‘Vishwanath’ (I think I watched it in parts on some tv channel) and many others.

Today let us watch a song from the 1978 movie ‘Vishwanaath’ performed by Reena Roy on screen. I didn’t get to watch this movie and vaguely remember of watching some of its parts on ‘TV’, as mentioned above, may be some years back. (However, I sincerely wish to watch it now as and when possible.)

So far two songs of this movie have been posted on the blog and one ‘jab jab jo jo hona hai’ with a ‘passionate’ and ‘interesting’ post by our Santosh Ojha ji and other one ‘hawa se halki hoon aaj’ by Atul ji with the contribution coming from Prakash ji.

I would request readers to go through this post ‘jab jab jo jo hona hai’ too to get a ‘feel’ of this wonderful movie of the ‘seventies’.

“Vishwanaath-1978” was directed by Subhash Ghai for ‘Ramayan Chitra’, Bombay’.

It had Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Premnath, Pran, Rita Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Sulochana, Iftikhar, Jagdish Raj, Randhir, Sapru, Yusuf Khan, Viju Khote, Sudhir, Madhu Chauhan, Keshav Rana, Suresh Desai, and Ashok Khanna.

Parikshit Sahni, Rakesh Pande, Lalita Pawar, Mukri, Bharat Bhushan, Satyen Kappu and Ranjeet make a special appearance in this movie.

This movie had total six songs penned by Vitthalbhai Patel- two songs, M.G. Hashmat – one song, Rajkavi Tulsi – one song and Anjan – two songs.

Music for this movie was composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Manna Dey gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.01.1978.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and written by Anjaan. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful racy composition by Rajesh Roshan which Reena Roy performs on screen in a ‘villain’s den’. And going by its songs available on YT I think this movie has more than one song in the ‘villain’s den’ song category. Also, I must admit here that I was not aware of this song, few years back, till this post and I came across it while searching for other songs. I don’t even remember if I have heard it earlier somewhere.

As I listened to it many times for the preparation of this post it grew upon me. The composition is something special, I think. And since the preparation of this post I have listened to it many many times now.

Asha Bhonsle’s singing and the tune set to it by Rajesh Roshan no doubt is magical.

The heroine is performing this song in the villain’s den ‘straight way’ challenging him and its music is very much supporting the ‘revengeful’ feelings of the heroine, of course, supported by Shatrughan Sinha and Pran (in disguise). Reena Roy has performed with full zeal and energy on this song.

Today 7th January 2019 is the sixty-second birth anniversary of actress Reena Roy (born on 07.01.1957). Wishing her here a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life in future, let us now enjoy this wonderful song composed by Rajesh Roshan and written by Anjaan.

Song-Wo din na rahe raaten na rahin (Manzoor)(1949) Singer-Ila Ghosh, Lyrics-Pt Bhushan, MD-Pankaj Mullick

Lyrics

Wo din na rahe ae ae
raaten na rahin
apne bigde begaane
sab sukh ke saathi chhoot gaye
dukh aaya hamen manaane ae ae
armaanon ki ik bagiya thhi ee
armaanon ki ik bagiya thhi
har daal pe sukh ka jhoola thha
har kali madhur muskaati thhi
har phool khushi se phoola thha
ik halki ee ee ee
ik aisi ulti hawa chali
toote sab sapne suhaane
apne bhi huye begaane

aasha thhi
aasha thhi jeewaan saagar se
munh maange moti paayenge
dil dil ii bhaasha samjhega
nainon ko nain lubhaayenge
ab dil ki ee ee
ab dil ki ye dukh bhari kahaani gaaun
?? jise sunaaun
apne bhi huye begaane

Today, Jaunuary 5th is 37th death anniversary of our dear Chitalkar Ramchandra. How can we miss our Anna Saheb today from our musical Blog, ASAD?

So here is a song from 1949 film “Namoona”, sung by the undisputed Gaan Saraswati, Hema Hardikar.

A social film produced by M & T Films, Bombay, (for those who wonder at this name, a little info that the city Mumbai was called ‘Bombaay’ then.) and directed by Heera Singh, the cast included Kamini Kaushal, Dev Aanand, Kishore Sahu, Leela Chitnis, Cuckoo Moray, Gulab, Pratima Devi, Madan Puri, Heera Sinha, Shyama, Shanti Madhok, Sanyal, Narmada Shankar, S Bose, Niranjan, CP Dixit, CL Shah, Gopal Sharma, Madan Shetty, BN Avasthi, Swartha, Malhotra and others.

There were six Lyricist viz, PL Santoshi, Nakhshab, A Shah Shikarpuri, Gulshan Jalalabadi and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. Music was set by our Anna Saheb Chitalkar Ramchandra. There were nine songs, 4 Hemaji’s solos one duet of Hema-Rafi and 4 songs by Shamshad Begum. Six songs are already present in our Blog.

On the occasion of 37th remembrance anniversary of C Ramachandra, I have selected a pathos filled song of my liking which is a rare song with GOOD taste. The song is ‘mujh ko sazaayen deke kisi ke gunaah ki’ from Namoona 1949. The song is sung by Hema. The lyrics are penned by Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. The composition is melodious.

Editor note-Those who wonder who Hema Hardikar is, that is the original name of Lata Mangeshkar. 🙂

Song-Mujhko sazaayen de ke kisi ke gunaah ki (Namoona)(1949) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics (Provided by Sadanand Kamath)

Mujhko sazaayen de ke kisi ke gunaah ki ee
bhagwaan toone kyun
bhagwaan toone kyun
meri duniya tabaah ki
Mujhko sazaayen de ke kisi ke gunaah ki ee
bhagwaan toone kyun
bhagwaan toone kyun
meri duniya tabaah ki
mujhko sazaayen de ke

nanhe se ek dil ko diye toone gham pe gham
nanhe se ek dil ko diye toone gham pe gham
is zindagi ki raah mein ab thhak gaye kadam
main dhool bhi na ban saki preetam ke raah ki ee
bhagwaan toone kyun
bhagwaan toone kyun
meri duniya tabaah ki
mujhko sazaayen de ke

ab kya kahoon ke dard se main choor choor hoon
ab kya kahoon ke dard se main choor choor hoon
mujhko in aansuon ki kasam bekusoor hoon
tujhko pukaare bebasi meri nigaah ki
bhagwaan toone kyun
bhagwaan toone kyun
meri duniya tabaah ki ee
mujhko sazaayen de ke

duniya mein ab mere liye koi khushi nahin
duniya mein ab mere liye koi khushi nahin
jeene ko jee rahi hoon magar zindagi nahin
ab maut se karoongi main soorat nibaahti(?)
bhagwaan toone kyun
bhagwaan toone kyun
meri duniya tabaah ki
mujhko sazaayen de ke
