Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Carl Sagan, in his book, ‘Pale Blue Dot’ talks about the picture taken by Voyager I before it left the solar system. Planet Earth, the only home we have known so far appears less than a fraction of a pixel in the picture. It’s on this speck of dust like object in the vast cosmos lived every human, plant and animal we ever know and every civilization.

On this planet the greatest men in a wide variety of fields have left behind their legacies both good and bad. Their lives however great or condemnable have been spent here.  In the vastness of time and space, a few years spent by great men may mean nothing. However, the legacy left behind by such men are recognized and appreciated for generations.

Theatre and entertainment arenas have also seen many a great men and women contribute their art and expertise to mankind. Quite a few are well known and many others are often not credited to the extent to which they should be.

Narrowing down to a movie and further restricting ourselves to Hindi film and non-film songs, the essence of this blog, we are now at the doorsteps of 15 thousand representations.

By these 15k representations, we all have tried to contribute our little efforts in bringing to the fore, the works of film artists – popular, less known and unknown. Amongst the main contributors, the nearly impossible tasks are taken up more experienced and knowledgeable such as Arunkumar ji, Sudhir ji, Sadanand ji etc.  The painstaking efforts in collecting accurate information from various sources and contacts and posting in a concise manner is definitely not an easy task.

Then, there are specialists such as Nalini ji for reminding us of the artist’s anniversaries and Prakash ji for identifying lesser known actors on the screen. Raja ji, whose marathon posts never bore us and we have Avinash ji who pours his heart out in the posts. We have Bharat ji with his expertise and first-hand experience.

There have many others who were more contended with sending only lyrics and a few who keep giving home-works to others. 🙂 A few are more than happy to suggest corrections to the posts and lyrics etc. in the comments section. Then, there are also contributors who vanish for a while and re-appear for special occasions (pun about self intended). 🙂

And, finally we have Atul ji, the fulcrum of our activities and the force that binds us together. Atul ji marches along from one milestone to another. And when he reaches the next milestone, we are all automatically teleported there. 🙂

I never planned for any special song for this occasion. (That again, the leaders will have a plan). But seeing that a great gem of an even greater singer is yet to be posted, I decided to go for his solo.

The singer is Talat Mahmood, of whom quite a lot has already been written on the blog.

My father, an avid fan Talat saab often says that his voice is for royal people. By royal, he means to say people with special taste and I can’t agree with him more. Talat Saab’s melancholic songs sung in blue mood are a class apart, the likes of which one will never get to hear from any other singer.

There are several such songs of Talat Saab which one can hear multiple times and can only admire the grace and dignity in his voice for songs pertaining to even dejection.

The list seems to be endless, but it’s a fact that he sang quite fewer songs compared to his other well-known contemporaries. However, Talat Saab’s voice will always be the triumph of quality over quantity.

The present song which I had not heard in the recent past is also amongst my many favourites of Talat Mahmood. There are stars and the moon in the song in case people are wondering what Carl Sagan had to do with this song in the first place. 🙂 (Kya karein, some starting problems in writing this post)

I pray for the continued longevity on the blog, active participation of all the contributors and readers as well.

Hearty Congratulations to one and all on this great achievement.

Blog Day : 3921 Post No. : 14986

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 28
————————————————

Looking at 13th April of ten years ago, the post score card was six songs.

Ghar Aaya Mera Pardesi Aawaara 1951
Teri Duniya Me Jeene Se To Behtar Hai Ke Mar Jaayen House No 44 1955
Tu Kahan Ye Bataa Is Nasheeli Raat Mein Tere Ghar Ke Saamne 1963
Iktara Bole Yaadgaar 1970
O Neele Parbaton Ki Dhaara Aadmi Aur Insaan 1969
Prem Kahaani Me Ik Ladka Hota Hai Prem Kahaani 1975

Two of the six films represented that day had made their debut – ‘House No. 44’ (1955) and ‘Yaadgaar’ (1970). Of the six films, five are already yippeee’d over the past 10 years. The one film that still awaits all its songs to be posted is ‘Yaadgaar’. Today, we bring to fore the fourth third song of this film, from a total of six songs listed.

Manoj Kumar, having started his career in 1958 with films like ‘Panchaayat’ and ‘Sahaara’, turned a writer and a producer less than a decade later. His first venture was ‘Shaheed’ in released 1965. The film was directed by S Ram Sharma under the banner of KPK Movies, Bombay. Then in 1967, under the new banner of Vishal International, he produced and directed ‘Upkar’. Coming close on the heels of the 1965 conflict with Pakistan, and the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri in Jan 1966, this film rode a wave of popularity on the sentiments of nationalism and social integration, and became one of the major blockbusters of the 1960s. The film also established the image and tag name of Mr. Bharat for him.

In 1970, he followed it up with ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, again from his own banner of Vishal International, another film that is on the same theme of nationalism and Indian culture, further strengthening that image. The fact that the title role he played in these two films has the name ‘Bharat’ helped a lot, of course.

In 1970 came another film that followed in the footsteps of his earlier creations, with the similar socially relevant theme of nationalism and Indian culture. Although not from the banner of Vishal International (the production house was Kunal Chitra, Bombay), the film was directed by S Ram Sharma, an old friend who had also directed ‘Shaheed’ of 1965. As with ‘Shaheed’, the story and screenplay is written by Manoj Kumar himself.

The cast of actors for this film is listed as Nutan, Manoj Kumar, Pran, Prem Chopra, Kamini Kaushal, Mehmood (Junior), Madan Puri, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Lalita Chatterjee, Asit Sen, Lakshmichaya, Shammi, Manmohan, Paulson, Jayshree, Kuljeet, Renu, Raj Kishore, Harbans Pape, Kirti Behal, Manohar, Naidu, Beerbal, Hansraj, Shrinath, Mohan Jerry, Dubey, Sabeena, Manohar Gosvai, Kesho Rana, Brahm Bhardwaj, Sobati, Aleeja, Genius, Darshan M, Ravikant, Chandra, Mohan Chhotu, Narbada Shankar, and Ramlal etc. One cannot help but notice a set of names that had had become regular in the cast of actors in his films – Kamini Kaushal, Pran, Madan Puri, Prem Chopra, Asit Sen, Tiwari, Mohan Choti, Manmohan, Shammi etc.

The theme song of this film is “Iktaara Bole, Sun Sun Kya Kahe Ye Tumse”. The song was a major hit in its time, as the film tried to address the malaise of degradation of social values in the Indian society. The song touches upon a series of topics like population, corruption in routine life, fashion, cold war and deteriorating relations between nations, political leaders, religious dogmas etc. The theme runs in parallel to the romantic love interest between Manoj Kumar and Nutan, touching also upon the class/caste conflict in the society.

This song carries forward this message of class/caste conflict and the desire for social equality. The scenario relates to the class conflict in religion. A number of people are waiting outside a temple, to enter and to worship theie God. But the pujari (priest) at the temple, temporarily halts the entry of devotees into the temple, as the chief patron of the temple is expected shortly. Rana Shamsher Singh (role played by Tiwari) is the rich man who has provided the funding for the temple, and so the temple is known by his name – Rana Mandir. As other devotees wait to enter the temple, a war of words breaks out between Bhanu (name of the role played by Manoj Kumar, thankfully not Bharat, as in ‘Upkar’ and ‘Purab Aur Paschim’) and Rana, which turns into this song that tells about God and his relationship to His devotees. The words tell that God is not necessarily housed in the temple, and that He also manifests Himself in many other locations and endeavors that also involve the poor and the downtrodden of the society.

The words of this song are from the pen of Indeewar, who also wrote the iconic “Kasme Waade Pyaar Wafa Sab. . .” for Manoj Kumar’s ‘Upkar’. The music is by Kalyanji Anandji. This music director duo was the regular MDs for Manoj Kumar’s films – ‘Upkar’, ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Yaadgar’. But come 1972, Manoj Kumar switched to Laxmikant Pyaarelal with his next venture ‘Shor’.

The singing voice is of Mahendra Kapoor, the playback singer that Manoj Kumar preferred for himself. Listen to this typical ‘Bharat’ message that helped further strengthen the image of Mr Bharat.

Song – Wo Khet Mein Milega, Khalihaan Mein Milega  (Yaadgaar) (1970) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
Chorus
Tiwari

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapvaala)

aaye jahaan bhagwaan se pehle
kisi dhanwaan ka naam
us mandir ke dwaar khade khud
royen krishna aur raam

dhanwaan ko pehle miley
bhagwaan ke darshan
darshan ko tarastaa rahey
jo bhakt ho nirdhan
ye dakshina ki reet
ye pandon ke chhalaawe
dukaan mein biktey huye
mandir ke chadhaawe
aise hi agar
aise hi agar dharm ka vyaapar
chalega
bhagwaan ka duniya mein
koi naam na legaa
aisi jageh pe jaa ke tu kuchh bhi na paayega
bhagwaan aisa mandir khud chhod jaayegaa
chhod jaayega
chhod jaayega

bhagwaan raana mandir mein nahin
to aur kahaan milegaa

wo khet mein milega
khalihaan mein milegaa
wo khet mein ae milegaa
khalihaan mein milegaa
bhagwaan to ae bande..ae
bhagwaan to ae bande
insaan mein ae milegaa
wo khet mein milega

dhanwaan jo hai jhoothha..aa
ho ho o o 
shaitaan ke baraabar
aa aa aa aa
nirdhan agar hai sachchaa
bhagwaan ke baraabar
wo dhong mein nahin hai
imaan mein milegaa..aa

ganga se bhi hai paawan
ho ho o o 
mazdoor ka paseena
aa aa aa aa
paani na koi samjhe

आये जहां भगवान से पहले
किसी धनवान का नाम
उस मंदिर के द्वार खड़े खुद
रोयें कृष्ण और राम

धनवान को पहले मिले
भगवान् के दर्शन
दर्शन को तरसता रहे
जो भक्त हो निर्धन
ये दक्षिणा कि रीत
ये पंडों के छलावे
दूकान में बिकते हुए
मंदिर के चढ़ावे
ऐसे ही अगर॰॰र
ऐसे ही अगर धर्म का व्यापार चलेगा
भगवान् का दुनिया में
कोई नाम ना लेगा
ऐसी जगह पे जाके तू कुछ भी न पायेगा
भगवान् ऐसा मंदिर खुद छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा
छोड़ जाएगा

(भगवान् राणा मंदिर में नहीं
तो और कहाँ मिलेगा)

वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में ए मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे॰॰ए
भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

धनवान जो है झूठा॰॰आ
हो हो ओ ओ
शैतान के बराबर
आ आ आ आ
निर्धन अगर है सच्चा
भगवान् के बराबर
वो ढोंग में नहीं है
ईमान में मिलेगा॰॰आ॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गंगा से भी है पावन
हो हो ओ ओ
मजदूर का पसीना
आ आ आ आ
पानी न कोई समझे
अनमोल ये नगीना
ऐसे ही पसीनों के निर्माण में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा

गीता सुना रहा है॰॰ए
आवाज़ में कलों कि॰॰ई
तकदीर लिख रहा है
नोकों से वो हलों की॰॰ई
मजदूर में मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो किसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा

भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा॰॰आ     
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा
वो खेत में मिलेगा
खलिहान में मिलेगा


भगवान् तो ए बन्दे
इंसान में ए मिलेगा

Missing Films of 1960s – 105
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Slowly moving towards closure, we now have less than 10 more films to go for this series, for which songs are available. Then there is a whole batch of about 80 films from this decade, which seem to have disappeared without a trace (so far). I will give the statistics and other details when we come down to the closing post.

The film I present today is ‘Mujhe Seene Se Laga Lo’ from 1969. As the name suggests, this film is most probably about a child seeking acknowledgement and love from one (or both) parents. My surmise is based on checking out the list of songs for this film. Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, and four of these songs are very clearly child related songs – one is a lullaby, then one is a duet with a female voice and a child’s voice, the third is a child’s entreaty requesting for parent’s love, and the fourth is a duet, about a mother searching for a lost child. And incidentally, another film comes to mind – a similar sounding name ‘Aa Galey Lag Jaa’ (1973), which is also a film about a child seeking his father – a very famous and popular song – “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi“.

The other two songs are non-child related. One is a sad/philosophical song in male voice – about departing with a load of sorrows. And the sixth song, which is the song presented today, is a song in female voice – a drunkard song that could well be a club or a bar dance song, or a song of enticement / seduction. Since the video clips are not available, I request our knowledgeable readers who may have seen this film, to please add more information about the song and the film.

The film is produced under the banner of Hari Darshan Chitra, Bombay and is directed by Dutta Dharmadhikari. The cast of actors as per Geet Kosh listings is Bunty, Kumar Sen, Meena Rai, Paresh Kumar, Dharmesh, Akhil Kumar, Ved Bhushan, Santosh Virdi, Gopal Dutt, KS Pawar, Vinod Verma, Ang Pal, Uma Khosla, Gold Flake, Tuntun, and Sarita. You will notice that the list is topped by a child actor – Bunty, supporting the surmise about this being a child centric film. An interesting side note here – the name Bunty rang a faint bell and I checked. My hunch turned out to be correct. Bunty is the same child artist who starred in Chetan Anand’s ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) – another film about an infant child lost in a big city, searching for its parents

The six songs in this film are shared amongst three songwriters – Prem Dhawan, Qamar Jalaalabaadi and Mahendra Dehlvi. The song we present today is from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. Music is by Hansraj Behl.

The singing voice is of Asha Bhosle. As with many other such songs, her rendition is superb – a lady who is so much in stupor, is requesting that the glass of wine be taken from hands, as she may not be able to hold it. One of the best songs in the female drunkard category – my opinion. 🙂

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

Song – Makhmoor Nigaahon Mein Teri Doob Gaye Hum  (Mujhe Seene Se Laga Lo) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Hansraj Behl

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

makhmoor nigaahon mein teri

makhmoor nigaahon mein teri

aao milaayen tujhe hum
saagar ko zara haath se lena

gir na jaaun ladkhadaa ke
dena sahaara aage aa ke
gir na jaaun ladkhadaa ke
dena sahaara aage aa ke
jaao na door
mere huzoor
jaao na door
mere huzoor
behke mere qadam
saagar ko zara haath se lena

saagar ko zara haath se lena

aankhon se tujhko pila doon
saagar ke saagar chhalka doon
aankhon se tujhko pila doon
saagar ke saagar chhalka doon
kuchh tum badho
kuchh hum badhen
kuchh tum badho
kuchh hum badhen
bhool jaayen saare gham
saagar ko zara haath se lena
ke chale hum

makhmoor nigaahon mein teri

Missing Films of 1960s – 104
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yesterday, unbeknownst to myself, I crossed a personal milestone on the blog. I posted my 1300th article, and song. 🙂 The past few weeks, well, months – have been very slow as far as my activity on the blog is concerned. My last century milestone was – believe you me – full eleven months ago. I had crossed the the 1200th mark in May last year. And now it is April. The activity being so low, it did not even come to mind to check and see what my score was. And so, unmindful of it, I reached the 1300th post, and just posted the song.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a prompt message from Avinash ji, congratulating me for the milestone. I scrambled to check on the blog and my excel database. Yes, Avinash ji was right on the dot, and I had missed it. . . wo. . . So this discovery was followed by a brief exchange with Atul ji. We inserted the customary sentence in the banner of the post, announcing the milestone. I told Atul ji how I had missed it myself. His response came back – that yes, he was aware, and was waiting for a special post for the occasion. 😀 😀 And I am like – ye lo, aur phans gaye!!! Here I am, saving the grey cells and the idea energy for the 15K celebration post, and now I have to do one more special just before. Goodness. So I am going to give it a try, do not know what is going to be the outcome.  🙂

Generally, when I run out of ideas, then the easiest starting point I have found is to start dabbling in numbers. (I think Atul ji also does the same. . . 🙂 ). So here goes. Counting this post, our total tally on this blog is 14975. Of these, only 3948 are posts that are guest posts. This computes to ~ 26.4% of the total. The implication here is significant and evident. The remaining 73.6% is the handiwork of our fearless leader – a whopping eleven thousand twenty seven posts have been done by Atul ji. If I extend this analysis to the next logical step – we are at 3914th day of blog’s continued activity. Simple calculation shows that Atul ji has been posting on an average of 3.8 (well, nearly 4) posts on a daily basis, for the past 10 years, 8 months and 19 days – WITHOUT A BREAK. Compare that to the guest posting activity. Normalizing that over the entire stretch of 3914 days, the average guest post over this entire period is 1 (ONE) per day.

I will extrapolate that now, even one step further. Till date, 31 guest posters have been accounted for on our blog, with no. of individual posts ranging from 1 to 1300. Ah yes, I could get into a lot of statistics here trying to compute the normal deviation, the standard deviation, the medians and the percentiles. But I will not bore you with that grand analysis. I present another perspective to this division of effort across the team, which is abundantly spectacular, to say the least. Atul ji has been producing 4 times more posts single handedly in comparison to this platoon of 31 guest posters, ON A DAILY BASIS. Now what do you have to say to that? 🙂 And if you ask me what I have to say to that – this is what I have to say to that – if ever I get into a kabaddi tournament, I will simply desert the game, if Atul ji is in the opposing team. 😀 😀

We all put together are Lilliputians to Atul ji’s Lemuel Gulliver. I have exhausted my entire stock of headgear to doff at this fantastic accomplishment – a prolificacy unparalleled anywhere in the digital domains.

And so, after this analysis, अब मैं क्या कहूँ अपने तेरह सौ के बारे में। 😀 😀 Just this – अगर कबड्डी खेलेंगे तो अतुल जी, मैं आपकी टीम में ही रहूँगा। 😀 😀

But of course, the joy of the journey is massive, and continues undiminished. क्या क्या तो गाने मिल रहे हैं!! और क्या क्या पता चल रहा है कितने ही गुमनाम कलाकारों के बारे में!!

This journey is laden with discoveries so abundant – one is running out of nerve cell memories to keep all this information bounded within. The known and the famous aside, and the well heard and popular aside – the joy of discovering discovering jewels of the diamond quality; and if gold it is 24 carats pure, and if silver – well it is सौ फीसदी टंच (100% pure). Whatever measure you want to throw at it, this travelogue of the discovery of musical gems is the means and the end in itself, a blessed reward unto itself.

Take this song today. The film is ‘Beqasoor’ from 1969. And the mind wants to say – “अब क्या मिसाल दूँ मैं तुम्हारे शबाब की”. I heard this song for the first time today. As I was browsing through the list of remaining films of 1960s, I picked on this film. In the process to locate the songs of this film, I was able to track down two of them online – both Rafi Sb duets, one with Lata Mangeshkar and one with Suman Kalyanpur. Checking the Geet Kosh, I find four songs listed for this film. The remaining two are Asha Bhosle solos, and as far as I could try and track, I am not able to locate these Asha solo numbers anywhere online. So, delving back into my collection, I am immediately able to locate these songs. I play the first one, and immediate reaction is – this song comes online today.

A lilting racy rhythm, a very catchy arrangement of the instruments, and a very appealing construction – quite the handiwork of Dattaram. Words are from the pen of Farooq Qaiser. And the rendering by Asha ji, simply superb. Even in the absence of the video clip, it is easy to surmise that this would be a song of Helen type. As I check out the cast list for this film, I do not find Helen in it, but another name would possibly do justice to this type of a song. The list of actors is given as Dara Singh, Sanjana, Maruti, Ulhas, Shaam Kumar, Ratnamala, Dhanraj, V Gopal, Habeeb, Sadhana Khote, Dilip Dutt, Meenakshi, and Madhumati. Possibilities are more than one. But I would not hazard a guess. I would request the circle of readers and friends – if anyone has seen this film, please add more information about this song and the film itself.

Wonderfully superb discovery. Listen and enjoy.

Missing Films of 1960s – 103
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that we bring on board today is ‘Sati Sulochana’ from 1969. One more film that is rarely heard about, although the video of this film is available. And once again, lovely songs that have not been explored. The sound of this song seems like it was heard on the radio, but that was a long time back.

The music is by SN Tripathi, who incidentally has also directed this film. The film is produced under the banner of SA Films, Bombay. The star cast includes Prithviraj, Anita Dutt, Prem Nath, Raj Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Kanan Kaushal, Sundar, Ram Singh, and Ram Mohan etc.

The story of Sati Sulochana is part of the history of Ramayan.  Sulochana is the daughter of Sheshnaag, the king of serpents. She is married to Meghnaad, the son of Raavan. Meghnaad is also known as Indrajit, for he had once vanquished Lord Indra and captured many sophisticated weapons from him. In the narrative of Ramayan, Sulochana is described as a brave lady who is very supportive of her husband. Eventually, when her husband is killed in the battle with Lakshman, she makes a decision to immolate herself on his pyre.

This story has been made into films on many occasions. The first one on record is the silent film ‘Sati Sulochana’ in 1921. Then this film was produced in Kannada, in 1934, as the first talkie film in Kannada language. In 1935, a Hindi film was also released by this name, under the production banner of Godavari Cinetone. In 1961, this tale was also told in a Telegu film starring NT Ramarao. And then in 1969, we have this Hindi production again.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs of this film. Music is from the mind of SN Tripathi. The songs have been written by Bharat Vyas and BD Mishra. This song is from the pen of Bharat Vyas.  The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, it appears as if the leading lady and one of two of her friends are lip syncing the same playback singing.

The song is picturized as a group dance song, in which the leading lady is being teased by her friends, asking her who is the one who comes into your dreams. The song is a lively exchange between the lady and her sahelis. On screen, I am not able to identify with certainty, the lady who leads the song. Is she Kanan Kaushal? I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help identify her.

Enjoy this lovely lilting melody, one of those songs that should have been more popular.

 

Song – Kaun Tere Sapnon Mein Aata  (Sati Sulochana) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – SN Tripathi
Chorus

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa
aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

hato ri sapne ki na boloon
bhed yeh mann ka na kholoon
jaao ri sakhi jaao
mujhe na yun sataao
khel ye mann ko na bhaata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
megh varan tha
kanak rang tha
mere jeevan mein samaa gaya
chhup ke kaanon mein kuchh bola
haule se ghunghat pat khola
akhiaan ghabraai
main to sharmaai
aage ab kuchh na kaha jaata
koi tere sapnon mein aata

veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
jaan nahin
pehchaan nahin koi
phir bhi wo mann ko bhaaya
preet meri muskaai hai
pooja meri rang laai hai
chhudaaye se na chhoote
tode to nahin toote
janm janmaantar ka naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

हटो री सपने की ना बोलूँ
भेद ये मन का ना खोलूँ
जाओ री सखी जाओ
मुझे ना यूं सताओ
खेल ये मन को ना भाता’
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मेघ वरण था
कनक रंग था
मेरे जीवन में समा गया
छुप के कानों में कुछ बोला
हौले से घूँघट पट खोला
अखियाँ घबराईं
मैं तो शरमाई
आगे अब कुछ ना कहा जाता
कोई तेरे सपनों में आता

वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
जान नहीं
पहचान नहीं कोई
फिर भी वो मन को भाया
प्रीत मेरी मुसकाई है
पूजा मेरी रंग लाई है
छुड़ाए से ना छूटे
तोड़े तो नहीं टूटे
जन्म जन्मांतर का नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

Missing Films of 1960s – 102
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I checked the listings today, I find there still are a good about dozen films of 1960s, and this homework list, that are traceable, available and have to be covered. I was earlier thinking may be just four or five more to go. Ok so, abhi to we are in good stride here, and hope to complete the available list in the next about two weeks. 🙂

Today’s film is ‘Soldier’ from 1969. This film also has an alternate name – ‘Thakur Diler Singh’. And so on YouTube, we find songs available by both names. The film is produced under the banner of PS Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Shyam. An short list of actors – Kumar Ajeet, Deepa, Shyam Kumar, Rajan Haksar, Randhir, Pal Sharma, Parasram, Jagdev, and Bilkis Shabnam.

The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. All songs are from the pen of Aziz Kashmiri, and the music is by the duo of Sonik Omi. Aziz Kashmiri, by this time in his career, was seasoned songwriter. His active career starts at the beginning of the 1940s, and goes all the way to mid 1970s – a recognized body of work of about 230+ songs from about 50 films. To his credit are such notable films as ‘Himmat’ (1941), ‘Iraada’ (1944), ‘Khamosh Nigaahen’ (1946), ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1947),’Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), ‘Dholak’ and ‘Sabz Baagh’ (both 1951), ‘Aag Ka Driya’ and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (both 1953), ‘Dekhi Teri Bambai’ (1961), ‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, ‘Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi’ and ‘Akalmand’ (all 1966) etc. His last film, as per Geet Kosh, is ‘International Crook’ from 1974.

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. Although the video clips of some songs of this film are available, for this particular song, I could locate only the audio clip. From the sound of it, it seems to be a group dance situation. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to add more information about this song.

Another player from 1960s makes its debut on our blog.  Listen to and enjoy this wonderful creation.

Song – Hum Ne Suna Tha Bada Charcha Janaab Ka  (Soldier) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Aziz Kashmiri, MD – Sonik Omi
Chorus

Lyrics

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
koi maane ya na maane
hum huye tere deewaane
jo pyaar kare iqraar kare
to ban jaaye afsaane
hoy bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
chauraahe pe dekha tujhko
lut gayi beech bajariya re
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
kehti hai meri jawaani
kyon qadar na tu ne jaani
ho yaar mere dildaar mere
zaalim hai rut mastaani
hoy gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
itna to batla de akela
kya thi teri marzi
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
कोई माने या ना माने
हम हुये तेरे दीवाने
जो प्यार करे इक़रार करे
तो बन जाये अफसाने
होय बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
चौराहे पे देखा तुझको
लुट गई बीच बजरिया रे
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
कहती है मेरी जवानी
क्यों क़दर ना तू ने जानी
हो यार मेरे दिलदार मेरे
ज़ालिम है रुत मस्तानी
होय गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
इतना तो बतला दे अकेला
क्या थी तेरी मर्ज़ी
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

Missing Films of 1960s – 101
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And yet, once again, another melodious and enchanting song. And once again, from a film that one has not heard anything about. The film is ‘Surya Devta’ from 1969 – as obscure as it can get. I have not heard of this film or its songs, before finding them in the Geet Kosh.

The film is produced by Alice Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Sharad Desai. The cast of actors is listed as Nirupa Roy, Ashish Kumar, Manimala, Sapru, Jeevan, Shekhar, Amrit Patel, Sarita Khatau, P Kailash, Sarita Devi, Shukla, Dalpat, Bhoj Kumar, and Kapoor.

The film has six songs listed. The lyrics are written by two poets – Madan and Bharat Vyas. Today’s song is written by Madan. The music is composed by Avinash Vyas. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

As I am preparing this post, and checking the genre categories, I realize that this song is an opposite genre of the “Please Don’t Go” type songs. Something like “Please Let Me Go” song. 🙂 I can think of one or two other such songs.

But what a lovely melodious composition, and what a lovely rendering by Suman Kalyanpur. A song that surely should have been more heard and more known.

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Jaane De, O Bedardi Jaane De  (Surya Devta) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Madan, MD – Avinash Vyas

 

Lyrics

jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
chaaron taraf pehra hai sainyyaan
is bairi sansaar ka
ab milne ki ghadiyaan guzar gayin re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
janam janam se hoon main teri
kar mujh pe vishwaas re
more kajre ki kor bigad gayi re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
चारों तरफ पहरा हैं सैंय्या
इस बैरी संसार का
अब मिलने की घड़ियाँ गुज़र गईं रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
जनम जनम से हूँ मैं तेरी
कर मुझ पे विश्वास रे
मोरे कजरे को कोर बिगड़ गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

Missing Films of 1960s – 100
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, finally, we get to a new type of century today. This series of bringing on board the missing films of 1960s becomes the series that has clocked 100 posts – a first one for our blog. This series got initiated three and half years ago on 30th September, 2015, and we arrive at the century station for it, at the rate of about 2 to 3 songs per month on average. The pace could have been faster, yes, but well, we have what we have. 🙂

As you must be aware, this series got kicked off by the efforts of Khyati Ben. She got into the exercise to check how many films of the 1960s (period from 1961 to 1970) have been brought on board our blog, and which ones are still waiting to be included. She came up with a list of some 190+ films, still waiting in the wings. The analysis resulted in this exercise, to bring on board as many of these 190+ films are traceable / available. And it got assigned to yours truly. 🙂

I will wait to present the final analysis of numbers, as there is still about seven of eight more films that are traceable and will be represented here. So bear with me for a little more time for that.

The film that we bring on board today is an obscure and lesser known film by the name ‘Ek Masoom’ from 1969. The interesting thing about this film is that although the gramophone records of this film have been available, the film itself was not available for a very long time. Finally, the film surfaced about a year ago, and I acquired a copy of it through a collector friend. Video clips of some of the songs are now available on the YouTube.

The film is produced under the banner of GNS Films Bombay, and is directed by Akhtar Khalid. The cast of actors listed for this film is Tanuja, Saleem Durrani, Prem Chopra, Surendra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Uma, Azra, Sulochana, Helen, Jagdeep, Murad, Mohan Choti, and Baby Masoom. I have a concern about this list. The name of Saleem Durrani is included. However, I have seen the film, and the Saleem Durrani (the cricketer) that we are familiar with, is not visible in this film. The lead actor opposite to Tanuja is a different person. One possibility is that this actor also has the name Saleem Durrani, or has used this name in this film. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please help to identify the male actor in this song. The face is completely new and unfamiliar.

The film itself is a cops and robbers tale and Mohan Choti plays the role of a gangster boss. The lead person, whom we are trying to identify, plays a triple role in this film. He appears in different situations with different names, causing a lot of confusion to the people around him. And then finally, there is court room drama where all the three appear one by one, and the mystery of the correct identity is solved.

The film does not have much to write home about. The direction and editing is below par and leaves a lot to be desired. The storyline moves with fits and starts. But the songs – now that is a different story, as usual. Seven songs are listed for this film. The music is by N Dutta. The lyricist’s name is just very, very unfamiliar – Fareed Tonki. As I checked some more, I find his name in just one more film – ‘Zaalim Tera Jawab Nahin’ (1960), and one unreleased film ‘Aqidat Ke Phool’. Checking on our blog, I find that one creation by him is posted here. This is a famous non-film qawwaali – “Raste Alag Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai”. So the gentleman is represented already on our blog, although no other information is traceable so far about him. His name, Fareed Tonki, suggest that he may be from the town named Tonk, in Rajasthan.

The song that I present today is an exquisite duet of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle – such a lovely lost gem this one is. The composition is easy paced and and light, and the rendition is very soft and soothing. A very pleasing song to hear to. (Of course, the song is much better heard than viewed.) On screen, it is Tanuja, and this gentleman that I am not able to identify.

Song – Poochh Le Dil Se Mere Ho Na Agar Mera Yakeen  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

hmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
hmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
hmmmm hmmmm hmmmm hmmm

pooch le
dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
main mohabbat hoon
mohabbat ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
ae sanam
teri kasam
mujhko to hai tujh pe yakeen
par zamaane ka ye kehna
hai ke tu mera nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

har taraf phaili hain ye
rangeeniaan rukhsaar ki
har taraf phaili hain ye
rangeeniaan rukhsaar ki
tere hi dum se to hai
shadaabiaan gulzar ki
tu jahaan rakhe kadam
phool khilen laakhon wahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

saamne tu hai mere
aur main tujhe dekha karoon
saamne tu hai mere
aur main tujhe dekha karoon
tere jalwon mein ab
shaam o sehar khoi rahoon
chhod ke daaman tera
jaaun na main aur kahin
ae sanam
teri kasam
mujhko to hai tujh pe yakeen

dil mera hai aaina
gar hai nazar pehchaan le
pehle hi pehchaan ke
dil hai diya ye jaan le
hum se kyon duniya jaley
ulfat koi jurm nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
main mohabbat hoon
mohabbat ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

मुझको तो है तुझ पे यकीं
पर ज़माने का ये कहना
है के तू मेरा नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

हर तरफ फैली हैं ये
रंगीनियाँ रुखसार की
हर तरफ फैली हैं ये
रंगीनियाँ रुखसार की
तेरे ही दम से तो है
शादाबियाँ गुलज़ार की
तू जहां रखे कदम
फूल खिलें लाखों वहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

सामने तू है मेरे
और मैं तुझे देखा करूँ
सामने तू है मेरे
और मैं तुझे देखा करूँ
तेरे जलवों में अब
शाम ओ सहर खोई राहून
छोड़ के दामन तेरा
जाऊँ ना मैं और कहीं
ए सनम
तेरी कसम
मुझको तो है तुझ पे यकीं

दिल मेरा है आईना
गर है नज़र पहचान ले
पहले ही पहचान के
दिल है दिया ये जान ले
हम से क्यों दुनिया जले
उलफत कोई जुर्म नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
मैं मोहब्बत हूँ
मोहब्बत के सिवा कुछ भी नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

Blog Day : 3904 Post No. : 14958

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 22
————————————————

This day, ten years ago, the songs that we were listening to are listed below,

 

Dukh Ke Ab Din Beetat Naahin Devdas 1935
Antam Fantam Chhod De Babu Hum Sab Chor Hain 1956
Hai Kali Kali Ke Lab Par Lala Rukh 1958
Jaa Re Beimaan Tujhe Jaan Liyaa Private Secretary 1962
Dil Ki Girah Khol Do Raat Aur Din 1967
Apni Aadat Hai Sabko Salaam Karnaa Pyaar Deewaana 1972

 

Six songs were posted, six films represented. Over the past 10 years, four of these films have completed their run of songs – ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958) and ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967).

For the remaining two films, the score card says –

‘Private Secretary’ (1962) – 4 songs posted out of total 7 listed, and
‘Pyaar Deewaana’ (1972) – 2 songs posted out of total 8 listed.

So in preparation for the Ten Year Challenge post for today, as I started to scan the remaining songs of these two films, I had to stop right at the first song that I checked, for I knew it has to be this one today. The song is a stage dance song from the film ‘Private Secretary’. The listing in the Geet Kosh is not fully informative, because the song title listed is actually the lead in verse to the song. The burden of the song comes later, and it was not apparent when I read the song title. But when I played this song – my goodness, I am amazed that a song of this caliber has been lying unnoticed for all these years. That is the reason for the urgency in my mind to post this.

This song was frequently heard on the air waves during the radio listening days, and so it is a very familiar and a favorite song from that time. After the leading verse, as soon as Lata ji starts to croon “O O O Saanwre. . .”, I just sat up straight with surprise – my God, this song, this lovely melody. Not yet posted. Hiding where all these years. And I knew it has to get posted right away.

The film ‘Private Secretary’ is produced under the banner of Radiant Movies, Bombay and is directed by Chander. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Jaishri Gadkar, NA Ansari, Mohan Choti, Poornima, Raja Gosavi, Neelam, Jerry, TN Sinha, Manohar Geer, Raj Kumar, Ravi Khanna, Kashi, CN Kapoor, Athawale, and Umakant. The seven songs listed are all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by Dilip Dholakia. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar.

The song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar on screen, as a stage performance. In the beginning of the song, we can see Ashok Kumar and Mohan Choti as part of the audience. A wonderful song and an equally wonderful performance – the song merits to be on the list of best dance songs.

Listen to this charming melody. And tell me. Did you have the same reaction as I did?

Song – O Saanwre, Aa Ja Pyaar Liyei  (Private Secretary) (1962) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Dilip Dholakia

dil ko bichhaaya hai
raahon mein tumhaari
jaane kab kismet jaagegi hamaari
dil ko bichhaaya hai
dil ko bichhaaya hai
raahon mein tumhaari
jaane kab kismet jaagegi hamaari
din jaaye raat aaye
dil se na aag jaaye
saanson mein goonje tera naam re
oo oo
o saanware
aa jaa pyaar liye
gaati bahaar liye
ke tere bina morey naina huvey

पी के दरस को तरस गई अखियाँ
बिन सावन के बरसे अखियाँ

कित गए रसिया
ओ मन बसिया
का से मन की
बोलूँ रे बतियाँ

आssss आsssss आssss आsssss
आsssssss आsssss आsssss आssssssss
आsss आss आss आs
आsss आss आss आs
आsss आss आss आs
ओ ओ सांवरे
आ जा प्यार लिए
गाती बहार लिए
के तेरे बिना मोरे नैना हुवे
बावरे
ओ सांवरे
आ जा प्यार लिए
गाती बहार लिए
के तेरे बिना मोरे नैना हुवे
बावरे
ओ सांवरे

जबसे सुरतिया आँखों में समाई
हमको तो लागे सारी दुनिया पराई
जबसे सुरतिया आँखों में समाई
जबसे सुरतिया आँखों में समाई
हमको तो लागे सारी दुनिया पराई
मिलने की प्यास लिए
एक यही आस लिए
बैठी रहूँ मैं सुबह शाम रे
ओ ओ ओ
ओ सांवरे
आ जा प्यार लिए
गाती बहार लिए
के तेरे बिना मोरे नैना हुवे
बावरे
ओ सांवरे

दिल को बिछाया है
राहों में तुम्हारी
जाने कब किस्मत जागेगी हमारी
दिल को बिछाया है
दिल को बिछाया है
राहों में तुम्हारी
जाने कब किस्मत जागेगी हमारी
दिन जाये रात आए
दिल से ना आग जाये
साँसों में गूँजे तेरा नाम रे
ओ ओ
ओ सांवरे
आ जा प्यार लिए
गाती बहार लिए
के तेरे बिना मोरे नैना हुवे
बावरे
ओ ओ ओ सांवरे

Missing Films of 1960s – 99
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK wow, we are at 99 for this series today. 🙂

The surprising thing is that this film is not yet on the blog. It is not obscure, it is not unfamiliar, it is not starring unfamiliar faces, it does not contain unfamiliar or unheard songs, and the songs are good to be heard. So then, how come?

Well, we come to it today. The film we are bringing on today is ‘Shart’ from 1969. Of course, its namesake from 1954 has legendary music and songs. The 1969 ‘Shart’ does not compare to the quality of music of the earlier one. But still, given the era we were in during late 1960s, we are still talking of primary rated artists who came together for this song. In their own right, these artists had already established themselves in the industry.

Music is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The lyrics are written by Anand Bakshi. And the singer of this song is Asha Bhosle. The lead pair in this film is Mumtaz and Sanjay (later known by the name Sanjay Khan). By 1969, both had made their presence felt on the box office. Mumtaz, having struggled thru from being a junior artist and then playing many a C grade films, had by this time graduated to A and B class cinema. Sanjay, being the younger brother of Feroze Khan already had a head start – appearing in big banner films opposite to top line leading ladies already.

The film was produced under the banner of Shankar Movies, Bombay, and was directed by Kewal Mishra. The star cast of this film, in addition to the lead pair mentioned above, is listed as Kumud Chhugani, Rajendra Nath, KN Singh, Ramesh Dev, Rajan Haksar, Heeralal, Shammi, Meena Rai, Murad, Ravikant, Tuntun, Ravi Khanna, and Hercules.

I do not readily recall the storyline. The song is group dance song, with Mumtaz as the lead dancer and a group of sahelis supporting her. We catch a glimpse of Ramesh Deo in the beginning of the clip. And Sanjay is seen watching this dance performance. The peculiar thing about this song is that in between we see that the lead dancer is switched, and we see another lady leading the dance, wearing exactly the same attire as Mumtaz. I request our circle of knowledgeable readers to please help identify this other lady.

It seems that the leading man, Sanjay, is equally perplexed. There is a look of baffled curiosity on his face, as he tries to figure out how the lady is being switched, as the song progresses. From a distance, it cannot be clearly made out, but in closer shots, there definitely is a switching of lead performer happening. Again, request is for those who may have seen this film, to please add information to explain this situation.

The song itself is a lovely Asha rendition, and the performance by Mumtaz is simply too good. Very energetic and very involved with the scene, she is of course the star attraction in this clip.

And after this post – we have the century post of this series coming up. Watch this space for more. 🙂 🙂

Song – Chori Se Sainyyaan Ne Mohe Pukaara  (Shart) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

chori se sainyyaan ne mohe pukaara
re chupke se maine bhi kiya ishaara
re kali kali jaan gayi

sunti hain mere prem ki batiyaan
ae suno

karte hain batiyaan
padh ke log mere naam ki patiyaan
dheere dheere baaten huin
chori mulaqaaten huin
kali kali jaan gayi
gali gali mach gaya shor
chori se sainyyaan ne mohe pukaara
re chupke se maine bhi kiya ishaara
re kali kali jaan gayi

चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा
रे चुपके से मैंने भी किया इशारा
रे कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा
रे चुपके से मैंने भी किया इशारा
रे कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
कली कली जान गई
ओय गली गली मच गया शोर

पहले थी चम्पा
फिर बनी गोरी
पड़ गया अब मेरा नाम चकोरी
ए सुनो
ए देखो
ओ लोगो
उड़ गई बैरन नींदिया मोरी
पकड़ी गई मेरे मन की चोरी
भेद ना ये काम आया
दोष मेरे नाम आया
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा
रे चुपके से मैंने भी किया इशारा
रे कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
कली कली जान गई
ओय गली गली मच गया शोर

मैं क्या जानूँ
छुपके सखियाँ
सुनीत हैं मेरे प्रेम की बतियाँ
ए सुनो
ए देखो
ओ लोगो
मैं क्या जानूँ
करते हैं बतियाँ
पढ़ के लोग मेरे नाम की पतियाँ
धीरे धीरे बातें हुईं
चोरी मुलाकातें हुईं
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा
रे चुपके से मैंने भी किया इशारा
रे कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शो॰॰ओर
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शो॰॰ओर
