“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that I knew little about when I was growing up. I watched this movie in 1978 when my went to college and my movie watching spree began with a vengeance. Those days, I only liked “new” movies and songs and scoffed at “old” movies and songs. But I had heard about old movies, so I would go and watch them when no “new” movie was there for me to watch. The old movies tended to run to empty house and so buying tickets for these movies was not a problem. I wondered if a day will come in future when one would be able to watch “new” movies with the same ease, without needing to queue up and black marketeers having a field day. Believe it or not, today we are actually in that situation where one can buy tickets of even brand new movies without needing to form a queue in the movie hall.

I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in a movie hall called Ratan Talkies. I knew that it was an old movie but still I mustered up enough tolerance within me and went to watch the movie. I was a few minutes late and the movie had already started. When I found that the movie had Raj Kumar (tragedy Kumar) and Meena Kumari (tragedy queen), I wondered if I had made a mistake and I would have to spend a misery filled three hours in the hall. But as soon as the songs of the movie began, I as well as others exclaimed-“arre ye gaana is film ka hai !”. Songs kept coming one after another, with the same collective response from the movie watchers.

Seeing that I had become a regular movie watcher only in that year, I had a lot of catching up to do. I was not aware about many of the actors that were there in the movie. Today, when I look back at the starcast of “Kaajal”(1965), I realise that it was full of big name actors. But when I was watching the movie at that time, I could identify only Raj Kumar, Meena Kumari and Dharmendra, aand that was all !

The movie had eleven songs in it. As many as ten songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

I came to know thanks to some whatsapp messages that today (12 june) is the birthday of Padmini (12 june 1932-24 September 2006). When I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in the movie hall. I had no clue about her. I did not even know that the actress seen in a few songs in the movie was Padmini.

On the occasion of Padmini’s birth anniversary, here is the eleventh and final song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as an archtypical get together song in a palatial home where people gather and politely watch a lady singing (while holding a sitar) and another lady dancing. In this song, Meena Kumari lip syncs while Padmini dances. Look at the people watching the performance. During those days, I did not even recognise Durga Khote !

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that was worth watching for its songs. Today, I would go to the extent of saying that only the songs of the movie must be watched. The story is too melodramatic for me. 🙂

Many decades later (after I began this blog), I came to know that Padmini had two more sisters and they too were dancing stars like her, and that together they were known as Travancore sisters.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, songs of “Kaajal”(1965) are now fully represented in the blog and this movie joins the list of movies that are YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 34
—————————————————————————

The rate of posting of songs in the blog ten years ago was quite similar to the present day rate of posting, even though things were obviously much different in 2010 than what they are now. This day ten years ago (6 june 2010) was a Sunday, when the final of French open tennis tournament was played and Rafael Nadal won his fifth French open title defeating Robin Söderling of Sweden in straight sets. Now a days, no sporting events are taking place.

I find it interesting to note that the world was suffering from the pandemic of Swine Flu between January 2009 till August 2010. But India was not affected as badly as we are today affected with Corona Virus. There was no lockdown of any kind those days, though night running of trains was suspended in Naxalite affected Orissa-Jharkhand-West Bengal region (SE Rly) those days after Maoist insurgents caused derailment of Jnaneshwari express on 28 may 2010. 148 passengers had died in this ghastly accident near Jhargram.

Three songs were posted in the blog on 06.06.2010:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Deewaane aa zaraa nazrein milaa Badaa Aadmi-1961 All songs covered on the blog
Jawaab nahin gore mukhde par til kaale kaa Kangan-1959 All songs covered on the blog
Aaja mere meet re sun ke mere geet re Jahaan Sati Wahaan Bhagwaan- 1965 02 of 05 songs covered

As can be seen, only one movie out of the above three movie still has a few songs left to be covered. In other words, it is the only candidate for “Blog Ten Year Challenge” today.

This movie, “Jahaan Sati Wahaan Bhagwaan”(1965) was directed by Satish Kumar for K S Pictures, Bombay.

The movie had five songs in it Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.
Here are their details:-

Song Posted On
Din Beete ladakpan ke 12.03.2010
Aaja mere meet re sun ke mere geet re 06.06.2010

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. This movie had two lyricists, viz B D Mishra and Madhukar Rajasthani but the lyricist of this song is not known. Music is composed by music director trio Lala Asar Sattar.

The song is picturised as a Lord Shiv Stuti dance song on Anita Guha and others. Among others, Meenaxi and Shirley can also be seen.

Catalyst behind this “Blog Ten Year Challenge” song was Avinash Scrapwala. He got Prakashchandra’s lyrics and also provided the Devnagri script lyrics of the song, while Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra. This happens to be his 1100th lyrics contribution in the blog. Quite an achievement by Prakashchandra. Our congratulations to this silent and prolific “Kasturi Mrig” contributor to the blog.

As a school going student, I was kept in strict discipline which meant going from home to school and back. No watching of movies. Even talking about movies and reading movie magazines were taboo. That did not prevent me from clandestinely reading movie magazines and books lying around the home that was apparently alright for elders to read.

It was in 1978, when I went to college and was allowed freedom as befitting a college goer. And I misused this freedom with abandon. I started watching movies left and right bunking college, as if making up for the lost time.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched many old movies during their re runs. It included not only movies like “Sholay”(1975),”Deewaar”(1975), “Mera Gaaon Merra Desh”(1971) etc etc but also movies from earlier decades.

The movie halls where I watched most of these movies had names like Sujata, Sandhya, Vasundhara etc. But not all movie halls had feminine names. There was an old movie hall called Ratan Talkies. Closeby there was another movie hall called Rupashree which reputedly was the first movie hall of Bihar (which was opened way back in 1930s). Then there was Welfare cinema hall. These three cinema halls were closer to my residence than others. The farthest cinema hall was a “properly” named movie hall called Plaza. It was the kind of name that one found in big places like New Delhi. 🙂

It was in one matinee show in 1978 in Ratan Talkies that I watched “Kaajal”(1965). I did not have much clue about the movie. I found the movie boring in the beginning when I saw tragedy queen Meena Kumari and tragedy Kumar Raj Kumar in the movie. But then the songs began to appear one after the other. With every song, the reaction (mine as well as that of others) was, arre, this song is from this movie ! All iconic songs !

Since I had started my movie watching spree just recently, many actors were “new” for me. I watched Raj Kumar for the first time in this movie. Then there were many others whom I did not recognise at that time and regarded them as lesser actors. When I look back at the cast now, I realise that this movie had a galaxy of big names. The fact that it had Padmini, Mumtaz, Mehmood etc in it apart from the tragedy persons was lost on me. Then yesteryear legend Durga Khote was there too. Dharmendra was there whom I thankfully recognised, having seen him in a few movies earlier.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past. When I look at the writeups of these songs, I realise that the writeups do not do justice to the songs. So I think we need to add some more contents and spice to these writeups. So I request our regulars to contribute their observations on these iconic songs.

Following songs from “Kaajal”(1965) have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the tenth song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This song is picturised as a “bhang” song on Mehmood and Mumtaz. Before I watched this song, I was not even aware that these two were in this movie.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Zara si aur pila do bhang (Kaajal)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

zaraa si aur pila do bhang

O hai ham bhola
zaraa si aur pila do bhang

O hai ham bhola aa
meri to akal huyi hai dang
ye kaisa badlaa tera dhang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa

tere roop ka jhatka khaa ke
meri soyi jawaani jaagi ee

ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang

Tak dhum tak tak tak tum

Kyun thhaam ke dil ko tehle
Jo chot lagi hai sah le ae
Haay haay
Kyun thhaam ke dil ko tehle
Jo chot lagi hai sah le ae
Us baat pe ab zid kaisi
Jo baat na maani pehle
Jo baat na maani pehle

Kyun jhagde mere sang
Main tujhse haar chukaa hoon jung
Ke dil mera dola
o hai ham bhola aa
meri to akal huyi hai dang
ye kaisa badlaa tera dhang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa

(undeciphered words)

mere dil se nikle haaye
gori kyun nakhre dikhlaaye

(undeciphered words)

mere dil se nikle haaye
gori kyun nakhre dikhlaaye
zaraa hans ke gale se lag jaa
tujhe kunwaara pyaar bulaaye
tujhe kunwaara pyaar bulaaye
tere man pe chadh gaya jang
yoonhi ab kyun chamkaaye rang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola

तेरे रूप का झटका खाके
मेरी सोयी जवानी जागी ई

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, a post waiting for some time now to come on board. This post and this song is specially for dear Avinash ji. 🙂 🙂

As you listen to the song, and the words settle down in the mind, you can almost imagine – Avinash ji, on his flight back from Kenya to India, thinking about this song. And then the landing at Mumbai, then passing thru the immigration and baggage collect. He bumps into an old friend while waiting for the bags. The friend asks him where from he is returning. Avinash ji says, Kenya. The friend says – अरे यार, वो भी कोई जगह है देखने की, see, I am returning from Barcelona, now that is a place to visit. And instantly Avinash ji breaks into this song, telling his friend “Tum Ne Dekha Kya Bhala, Gar Na Dekha Aafrika”. And there is a loud applause from the crowd waiting for their baggage.

And then, Avinash ji decides that this song must also be screened for the musical bandwagon on our blog. The Atulites must be made aware – they have missed something significant in life – “तुमने क्या देखा भला, जो ना देखा आफ्रिका”.  🙂

The song is performed as a club dance cum stage dance setting. A fiesty rock and roll number, which should have been heard more. But maybe then, the 1960s was overflowing with such rollicking dance numbers. The film itself, of course did not seem to have made any impact, and so this superb song seems to have dived below the radar of listeners.

The first one to make an entrance is Bela Bose, all made up as a native African belle. Next on the scene is Bhagwan Dada, also in an African attire and face wash. The first stanza goes by. And then, in the second stanza, we have Chandrashekhar make his appearance – a white man, suited and booted, riding in an open car. He declares that he was on way to America (jeez) but then the beauty of Africa and the African ‘माहजबीं’ made him change his mind. Quite a stretch of imagination here by Bakshi Sb (I mean Anand Bakshi 🙂 ), calling a dark and dusky damsel as ‘माहजबीं’ (literal meaning – moon faced).

And then we are on to the third stanza, in which Bhagwan Dada, feeling threatened by the invasion of the white male competitor, advises his heart throb that the fair color is not so fair, if the heart is not in the game.

In the interludes, we see the audience as well as a quartet of sinister looking ‘thugs’ who are apparently up to no good, and most likely are looking for somebody. Could be the scenario is that Bhagwan and Chandrashekhar are on the run followed by this quartet, and they both mingle in with this performance, trying to hide behind the disguises. Now isn’t that so original 🙂

Blog Day : 4209 Post No. : 15404

Greetings all for the celebration today – the anniversary of declaration of our nation as a Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic.

The Constituent Assembly, consisting of 389 eminent people from across all walks of life and all population segments in the country, was established on 6th December, 1946. After a string of debates, which included public debates in different parts of the country, the Assembly agreed to adopt our constitution on 6th November, 1949. And then on 26th January of 1950, the nation of India, that is Bharat, was declared as being governed according to this document which is the supreme law of our land.

The Preamble to the constitution states the following,

WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:

JUSTICE, social, economic and political;

LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;

EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;

and to promote among them all FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty sixth day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.

 

The constitution become the bedrock foundation for enunciating all the defining principles of governance and jurisprudence, which in turn form the source of all the laws that apply to our country and its citizens.

In terms of an identity, a nation is characterized and represented by a set of symbols which identify and define it. Wherever we may be in this world, whatever may be the query about what India is, the answers will always be in terms of certain symbols that are constant and do not change – our flag, our national emblem, our national anthem, our currency, and more.

As a matter of fact, symbols and symbolism form a very imperative part of our lives. All around us, in our everyday environment, we encounter a multitude of symbols that relate to every aspect of our lives. They could be fashion brands, corporate houses, currency, governments, services, road traffic – well, just any class and category of ‘things’ in and around our lives. These symbols are significant artifacts that represent, convey, and inspire a plethora of meanings and emotions relating to our everyday lives and experiences. These symbols may be local or universal. Everywhere in the world, the sign of dollar is a symbol for money. Traffic lights and signs are universal symbols, recognized across national boundaries. Emoticons we use every day now in our communications, are symbols that represents emotions, things, communication snippets. I could go on describing, and there would be no end to how symbols have become such an integral and pervasive part of our lives.

In a world we live in – a fragmented world of divisions that are represented and controlled on the basis of multiple criteria. We are a world of nation states. And the world over, the national identities are represented and underscored by a set of symbols. The flags, the emblem, colors, badges, plants/birds/animals – in fact each nation has a collection of symbols to characterize and epitomize its national identity. In our native Hindi, the word for flag is ‘निशान’ (nishan), which is a synonym for ‘symbol’.

National anniversaries are also in the nature of symbols of a nation. The celebrations of these anniversaries represent a dynamic continuity of the national identity across the pages of history. There is an evolution and transformation that happens with time, but the basic elements and definitions remain a constant. That constancy is an edifice of identity and a hallmark of stability and continuity in the matters of everyday interactions in the lives of the people of the nation. The presence of these symbols in our lives, and their everyday transactions, generates in our hearts a comfortable feeling of being – being an Indian.

For example, encountering the flag – our Tricolour, evokes in the heart, overwhelming emotions of pride, honor, affinity, affection and belonging. These symbols have become so much a part of our existence, that inside ourselves very strong emotions are now linked with these symbols. These symbols are now a cornerstone of our and our country’s existence.

The matter of honor and pride, linked with symbols and the emotions that these symbols evoke, has been a matter of very personal and a very human experience all across the history. The song being presented in this post today is a very forceful and compelling testimony on the inherent relationship between symbols and matter of national honor. Here is a brief slice of history representing a true episode from the annals of the Rajput history. As the reader will go through this song, one will find many symbols – that of patriotism, personal relations and personal sacrifices – being invoked.

The episode tells a piece of history, about Haadi Rani, who is now a folk heroine in Rajasthan. Haadi Rani was the daughter of King Haada Chauhan of the Kingdom of Boondi. She was married to Rawat Ratan Singh Chundaawat of Salumber (in Udaipur). Ratan Singh was the commander of the army of Maharana Raj Singh of Mewar, India was ruled at that time by the sixth Mughal Emperor – Aurangzeb Alamgir.

In a turn of events, the royal Mughal forces invaded Mewar. Maharana Raj Singh sent an urgent emissary to Rawat Ratan Singh, to raise the army and join the battle against Aurangzeb’s forces. As circumstances would have it, Ratan Singh had just been married one week prior. Initially, he was hesitant to leave his newlywed bride, and go to the battlefield. However, Haadi Rani reminded him of his duty towards the king and the kingdom, and prevailed upon him to join the battle. Ratan Singh left Salumber and his bride, and proceeded to join Maharana Raj Singh with his contingent. However, his mind was still engrossed with the amorous affections for Haadi Rani.

Midway from his march towards Udaipur, he sent back a messenger to his palace, with a message for his bride – that she should send him some token symbol of love – ‘प्रेम चिन्ह’, to sustain him through the times he is away from her. On reading the message, Rani sensed the state of mind of her husband, and at first, was quite bewildered as to what she should do. She apprehended that his mind being engrossed with her, he would not be an effective soldier and commander on the battlefield. But quickly she made up her mind, and decided the commit the ultimate sacrifice. She instructed the messenger quite sternly. Then she proceeded to behead herself with a sword. The messenger, very shocked and shaken, followed her instructions, and carried her bleeding head on golden tray, covered with her bridal finery, to Ratan Singh.

Ratan Singh, waiting eagerly for the ‘प्रेम चिन्ह’, received what he never expected in his wildest dreams. Uncovering the tray, he saw the head of his newlywed bride. His grief and his repentance had no bounds, for in a flash he realized what Haadi Rani had done, and why had she done it. As the folklore goes, he picked up the head and slung it around his neck with the tresses that he had once caressed with love. With this demeanor, he launched himself into the battle. It is said that fought valiantly like a man possessed, and led his army to victory against the forces of the Mughal Emperor. Once the victory was attained and the opposition army was in retreat, Ratan Singh alighted from his horse, knelt down on the ground and proceeded to behead himself.

In the intense and turbulent martial history of Rajasthan, this episode stands amongst the most powerful and most emotional, where the honor of the kingdom, and its security is perceived as a paramount commitment, even above personal engagements and requirements. Haadi Rani made the supreme sacrifice for the sake that her commander husband would not be swayed by the thoughts of his recent matrimony, and that the sight that she eventually presented to her husband would have served as a vicious impetus for him to give his utmost in the battle against the enemy.

The symbolism of honor – the trumpets announcing the onset of warfare. The symbolism of love – the ‘प्रेम चिन्ह’ that  Ratan Singh request for. And the symbolism of sacrifice – the ultimate step taken by Haadi Rani. This song converges these symbolisms into itself. A wonderfully emotional and a soul stirring presentation of one of the most chilling episodes of Rajput history.

The song is from the 1965 film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’. In the film, the setting of this song is as follows. A group of students, including Tanuja, Rajeev and Raj Kishore, are visiting another college in another city, for the annual festival of the latter college. As part of the program, all participant colleges are to present a stage item at the festival. This performance is presented by the protagonist group. In the film, Rajeev is the creative spirit of the team, and he completes the writing of this poem just in time for preparing the performance. On stage, the role of Haadi Rani is played by Tanuja, and that of Rawat Ratan Singh by Raj Kishore. We can see Rajeev doing the rendition of the poem on the mike placed in the wings of the stage.

The words of this poem are written by Manmohan Tiwari, the only song of this film that is not written by Neeraj. Music composition is by Roshan. The singing voice is of Manna Dey – the song has been rendered with such flourish and emotional dexterity.

A stirring reminder again today, the price of breathing in free air is defined through examples like this episode from our history. The finale of the song brings us back into convergence of the historical and the present tense – “O Bharat Maa Teri Jai Ho”.

Whatever else may be our compulsions, our personal motivations, our limitations, our interests, I am sure none of us differs about this sentiment – “O Bharat Maa Teri Jai Ho”.

[Ed Note: With this post, all songs of this film are now represented on our blog. The film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ is now yippeee’d.]

Song – Thi Shubh Suhaag Ki Raat Madhur  (Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal) (1965) Singer – Manna Dey, Lyrics – Manmohan Tiwari, MD – Roshan

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

thi shubh suhaag ki raat madhur
madhu chalak rahaa tha kan kan mein
sapne jagtey the nainon mein
armaan machaltey the mann mein
sardaar magan mann jhoom raha
pal pal har ang phadakta tha
honthon par pyaas mahakti thi
praanon mein pyaar dhadakta tha
tab hi ghunghat mein muskaati

tab hi ghunghat mein muskaati
pag paayal cham cham chamkaati
raani antahpur mein aayi
kuch sakuchaati kuch sharmaati

mehndi se haath rache donon
maathe par kumkum ka teeka
gora mukhda muskaa de to
poonam ka chaand lagey pheeka
dheere se badh choodavat ne

dheere se badh choodavat ne
raani ka ghunghat pat khola
nas nas mein kaundh gayi bijli
peepal patte sa tan dola

adharon se adhar miley jab tak
lajja ke toote chhand band
rann-bigul dwaar par goonj uthaa aa
rann-bigul dwaar par goonj uthaa
shehnaayi ka swar huaa mand
bhuj bandhan bhoola aalingan
aalingan bhool gaya chumban
chumban ko bhool gayi saansen
saanson ko bhool gayi dhadkan
taj kar suhaag ki sej saji

taj kar suhaag ki sej saji
bola aa na yuddh ko jaaunga
teri kajraari alkon mein
mann moti aaj guthaaunga

pehle to raani rahi maun
phir kaal jwaal si bhabhak utthi
bin baadal bin barkhaa maano
kya bijli koyi kadak utthi
ghayal naagan si bhaunh taan
ghunghat ukhaadkar yoon boli
talwaar mujhe de do apni
tum pehan raho choodi choli
pinjde mein koyi band sher

pinjde mein koyi band sher
sehsa sote se jaag utthe
yaa aandhi andhad saath liye
jaise pahaad se aag utthe

ho gaya khadaa tan kar ranaa
haathon mein bhaala utthaa liya
har har bam bam bam mahadev
har har bam bam bam mahadev
kah kar rann ko prasthaan kiya

dekha pati ka jab veer vesh
pehle to raani harshaayi
phir sehmi tthitthki akulaayi
aankhon mein badli ghir aayi
paagal si gayi jharokhe par

paagal si gayi jharokhe par
par-kite hansini thi adheer
ghodey par chadhaa dikhaa ranaa
jaise kamaan par chadhaa teer

donon ki aankhen huyi chaar
choodavat phir sudhbudh khoyi
sandesh pathaa kar raani ko
mangwaaya prem chinh koi

sewak ja pahunchaa mehlon mein
raani se maangi sainaani
raani jhijhki phir cheekh utthi
boli kah de mar gayi raani

le khadag haath
phir kahaa thahar
le sainaani
le sainaani
ambar bola
le sainaani
dharti boli
le sainaani

rakh kar chaandi ki thaali mein
sewak bhaaga le sainaani
ranaa adheer bola badhkar
laa
laa
laa
laa
laa sainaani

kapda jab magar hataaya to
rah gaya khada moorat ban kar
lahuluhaan raani ka sir
hansta tha rakha thaali par
sardaar dekh kar chitkaar uttha
haa raani
haa meri raani
adbhut hai teri qurbaani
tu sach much hi hai kshatraani

phir ed lagaayi ghode par
dharti boli jai ho jai ho
haadi raani teri jai ho
o bharat maa teri jai ho
o bharat maa teri jai ho o
teri jai ho
o bharat maa teri jai ho o

————————————————————————————-

थी शुभ सुहाग कि रात मधुर
मधु छलक रहा था कण कण में
सपने जगते थे नैनों में
अरमान मचलते थे मन में
सरदार मगन मन झूम रहा
पल पल हर अंग फड़कता था
होंठों पर प्यास महकती थी
प्राणों में प्यार धड़कता था
तब ही घूँघट में मुस्काती

तब ही घूँघट में मुस्काती
पग पायल छम छम छमकाती
रानी अन्तःपुर में आयी
कुछ सकुचाती कुछ शरमाती

मेहँदी से हाथ रचे दोनों
माथे पर कुमकुम का टिका
गोरा मुखड़ा मुस्का दे तो
पूनम का चाँद लगे फीका
धीरे से बढ़ चूंडावत ने

धीरे से बढ़ चूंडावत ने
रानी का घूँघट पट खोला
नस नस में कौंध गयी बिजली
पीपल पत्ते सा तन डोला

अधरों से अधर मिले जब तक
लज्जा के टूटे छंद बन्द
रण बिगुल द्वार पर गूँज उठा आ

रण बिगुल द्वार पर गूँज उठा
शहनाई का स्वर हुआ मन्द
भुज बंधन भूला आलिंगन
आलिंगन भूल गया चुम्बन
चुम्बन को भूल गयी साँसें
साँसों को भूल गयी धड़कन
तज कर सुहाग कि सेज सजी

तज कर सुहाग कि सेज सजी
बोला॰॰आ न युद्ध को जाऊँगा
तेरी कजरारी अलकों में
मन मोती आज गुंथाऊंगा

पहले तो रानी रही मौन
फिर काल ज्वाल सी भभक उठी
बिन बादल बिन बरखा मानो
क्या बिजली कोई कड़क उठी
घायल नागन सी भौंह तान
घूँघट उखाड़कर यूं बोली
तलवार मुझे दे दो अपनी
तुम पहन रहो चूड़ी चोली
पिंजड़े में कोई बंद शेर

पिंजड़े में कोई बंद शेर
सहसा सोते से जाग उठे
या आंधी अंधड़ साथ लिए
जैसे पहाड़ से आग उठे

हो गया खडा तन कर राणा
हाथों में भाला उठा लिया
हर हर बम बम बम महादेव
हर हर बम बम बम महादेव
कह कर रण को प्रस्थान किया

देखा पति का जब वीर वेश
पहले तो रानी हर्षाई
फिर सहमी ठिठकी अकुलाई
आँखों में बदली घिर आई
पागल सी गयी झरोखे पर

पागल सी गयी झरोखे पर
पर-कटी हंसनी थी अधीर
घोडे पर चढ़ा दिखा राणा
जैसे कमान पर चढ़ा तीर

दोनों कि आँखें हुयी चार
चूंडावत फिर सुधबुध खोयी
सन्देश पठा कर रानी को
मंगवाया प्रेमचिन्ह कोई

सेवक जा पहुंचा महलों में
रानी से मांगी सैनाणी
रानी झिझकी फिर चीख उठी
बोली कह दे मर गयी रानी

ले खड्ग हाथ
फिर कहा ठहर
ले सैनाणी
ले सैनाणी
अम्बर बोला
ले सैनाणी
धरती बोली
ले सैनाणी

रख कर चांदी कि थाली में
सेवक भागा ले सैनाणी
राणा अधीर बोला बढ़कर
ला
ला
ला
ला
ला सैनाणी

कपडा जब मगर हटाया तो
रह गया खडा मूरत बन कर
लहुलुहान रानी का सर
हंसता था रक्खा थाली पर

सरदार देख कर चीत्कार उठा
हा रानी
हा मेरी रानी
अद्भुत है तेरी कुर्बानी
तू सचमुच ही है क्षत्राणी

फिर एड़ लगाई घोड़े पर
धरती बोली जय हो जय हो
हाड़ी रानी तेरी जय हो
ओ भारत माँ तेरी जय हो ओ
ओ भारत माँ तेरी जय हो
तेरी जय हो
ओ भारत माँ तेरी जय हो

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 14

An iconic song from 1965 – absoute gem, absolutely unforgettable. “Kaanton Se Kheench Ke Ye Aanchal. . . Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai” from the 1965 film ‘Guide’. Created by the greats of that era – Shailendra, SD Burman and Lata Mangeshkar. And coming from a film directed by Vijay Anand, one is assured that the picturization would be superlative, which it surely is. The song continues to sustain its beauty even after more than five decades. It is such a genuine treat both visually and aurally.

Eighteen years after this song came into being, it was used again in the 1983 film ‘Qayaamat’. This film is one of the plethora of crime-and-punishment films that crowded the screens during the 1980s and 90s. The main roles are played by Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Smita Patil, Jayaprada and Poonam Dhillon. Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha are close friends. But there is a falling out in their friendship, when Dharmendra is sent to jail, and he holds his police officer friend responsible for it. On returning from jail, he seeks to avenge himself for something that he considers as injustice meted out to him.

I have not seen the film and so will not be able to comment on the sequencing of this song within the storyline. Apparently, Jayaparada is the love interest of Dharmendra, and she appears in flashback in the movie. So there is some tragedy also related here. The occasion for the song is the birthday party of Shatrughan Sinha. Dharmendra is calling on a phone line to greet his friend. He finds out that Smita is about to sing a song at the party. He requests his friend to keep the phone line open so that he can listen. Then the song starts. It starts in the party, and almost immediately Dharmendra rewinds to the past where he sees Jayaprada singing in a very picturesque hillside setting. Rest of the song plays out in this flashback, returning to the party just moments before it ends.

Personally speaking, the song and its theme does not seem to fit into the birthday setting or even the hillside flashback interlude. It seems like force fitted, and completely out of place. But then that is just me.

The song has been reused in its original form. It is not re-recorded. So we get to enjoy the original audio, picturized on a different set of actors, in a different setting.

This song was identified and suggested by our dear Satyajit Rajurkar ji, for inclusion in this series. Thanks Satyajit ji.

कल के अँधेरों से निकल के
देखा है आँखें मलते मलते
हो ओ ओ
कल के अँधेरों से निकल के
देखा है आँखें मलते मलते
हो ओ ओ
फूल ही फूल ज़िंदगी बहार है
तय कर लिया
आ आ आ आ आ आ
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The song is picturised as a rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the daner. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can identify Shyam Kumar and Bhagwan among the audience.


Song-Dil toone kehna maana (Tarzan aur Kingkong)(1965) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Robin Bannerji

Lyrics

dil toone kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

bedardi baalma khudgarzi
bedardi baalma khudgarzi
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
haay pahle churaaye jiyaa phir tadpaaye
bairi badala chukaaye kaise mere ehsaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

jaa julmi dekh li teri yaari
jaa julmi dehk li teri yaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
are ankhiyaan ji waade kare aankhe beisraaye
haay koi thikaana nahin jis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ki
haay re kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana aa aa

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Aalor Pipasa’ (Thirst for Light) was a Bangla film released in January 1965. The film was directed by Tarun Majumdar. The film is available on-line with English sub-titles. The story of the film is about a courtesan (Sandhya Roy) who sacrifices her life for the betterment of her son. The entire story is depicted in the film by way of flash back when a senior doctor (Pahadi Sanyal) tells the story of the courtesan to his junior doctor (Asit Baran). The junior doctor happens to be the courtesan’s son.

Obviously, the story of the film revolves around Sandhya Roy and I must say that she has given an outstanding performance in the film. Hitherto, my knowledge about Sandhya Roy was limited to her Hindi films like ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962), ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ (1964), ‘Jaane Anjaane’ (1971) etc. But in Hindi films she had only secondary roles like Dev Anand’s ‘munhboli bahen’ (adoptive sister) in ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962) where she displays her combative but soft at heart attitudes. The song from the film laakh chupaao chhup na sakega was picturised on her.

In Bangla films, Sandhya Roy has been one of the prominent actresses who has been active in Bangla film industry for over 5 decades starting with lead roles and switching over to character roles. She has worked in more than 100 films. She is also in politics having successfully contested parliamentary election from Mednipur in 2014 on Trinamul Congress ticket.

Sandhya Roy (born 11/04/1941) was born in Nabadwip (West Bengal). However, her family belonged to Khulna (now in Bangla Desh) where her grand father was a landlord. In her childhood, she lost her parents. She was brought up by her maternal uncle at Khulna where she had her early education.

In 1957, Sandhya Roy returned to Kolkata and stayed with her sister. This was the beginning of her unexpected journey to Bangla films. While watching the shooting of the film ‘Mamlar Fol’ (1957), the director saw her and offered her a role in the crowd. Her first full-fledged film was ‘Antariksha’ (1957). After the success of this film, she started getting offers of lead roles in many Bangla films. She remained one of the leading actresses in Bangla films during 1960-80. During this period, she was paired with Biswajeet in about 20 films.

Sandhya Roy had her stint in Hindi films with ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962) which was followed by ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ (1964), ‘Raahgir’ (1969), ‘Jaane Anjaane’ (1971), Bandagi’ (1972) etc. The last Hindi film she acted was ‘Ek Anaar Sau Bimaar’ (2008). However, despite her good acting, she could not actively pursue her career in Hindi films.

From 1980s onward, Sandhya Roy continues to work in Bangla films as a character actress beside pursuing her political career.

Sandhya Roy married Tarun Majumdar, one of the leading directors of Bangla films who had also directed Hindi films, ‘Balika Badhu’ (1967) and ‘Raahgir’ (1969).

‘Aalor Pipasa’ (1965) had nine songs of which as many as 5 songs were Hindi semi-classical songs. This was to be expected since the story of the film revolves around a courtesan who entertains her clients by singing and dancing. The film also has a Sanskrit strotra (hymns) which has been rendered by Hemant Kumar as a background song when credit titles roll in the film.

In the film, Lata Mangeshkar sings two solos for Sandhya Roy of which I have selected the song ‘ghir aayi badariya piya naahi aaye’. The song has been written by Kaifi Azmi which has been set to music by Hemant Kumar.


Song-Ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye (Aalor Pipaasa)(Bangla)(1965) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahi aaye
tan man jale mora birha sataaye
tan man jale mora birha sataaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye

jaa jaa re badra tu pi ko manaa laa
jaa jaa re badra……aa aa aa aa aa
jaa jaa re badra tu pi ko manaa laa
pi ke bina mohe kachhu hi na bhaaye
pi ke bina mohe
pi ke bina mohe kachhu hi na bhaaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye

jeewan hai pyaasa ankhiyaan hain pyaasi
jeewan hai pyaasa ankhiyaan hain pyaasi
jeewan hai pyaasa ankhiyaan hain pyaasi
megha re kaahe ko jhariya lagaaye
megha re kaahe ko
megha re kaahe ko jhariya lagaaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
tan man jale mora birha sataaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye
ghir aayi badariya piya naahin aaye….ye ye

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

By now, I must have watched/heard about 20 Hindi songs from the Bangla films of 1950s-1970s. I have a feeling that there may be a few more Hindi songs in Bangla films which I have yet to explore.

A question came to my mind as to why some Bengali film directors have fascination to incorporate Hindi songs in Bangla films. Is it something to do with realism or the personal preferences of the film directors? After watching some of the videos of the Hindi songs in Bangla films, I have come to the conclusion that it is for the realistic depiction of the situations in the films. Almost, all the Hindi song situations in Bengali films that I have so far watched, belongs to semi-classical genre. The Hindi song situations mostly comprises of mujra dances, a teacher of Hindustani classical vocalist rehearsing with his student, actors in the role of Hindustani classical vocalists giving stage performances etc.

Today, I am presenting a semi-classical traditional dadra, ‘jiya mein laagi aan baan’ from the Bangla film ‘Atithi’ (1965). The film directed by Tapan Sinha is based on a short story of the same title by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. The dadra set in raag Gara has been sung by Meera Banerjee whose name I heard for the first time. A search on the internet revealed that Meera Banerjee was Hindustani classical vocalist belonging to Patiala Gharana. A brief profile of Meera Banerjee culled out from an article in ‘The Hindu’ July 5, 2012 issue is presented below:

Vidushi Meera Banerjee (28/03/1930 – 28/06/2012) was born in Meerut (Uttar Pradesh). Her father, Shailendra Kumar Chatterjee was a musicologist who gave her the initial training in music. Later she was trained by Pandit Chinmay Lahiri. She became the listed artist of All India Radio at the age of 14.

Pandit Harishchandra Bali of Jalandhar (see my note below) who was the Guru of Meera’s father saw her potential as a vocalist and gave her training in some rare bandishes composed by him. From 1950 onward, Meera Banerjee became the disciple of Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan and remained so until his death in 1968.

Meera Banerjee attained the status of one of the prominent Hindustani classical vocalists in the genre of Khayal and Thumri in the 1950s. She participated in the National Programme of Music and other musical festivals in India. She travelled abroad as a part of cultural delegation of Government of India to give performances in various countries. She had won numerous awards for works.

In 1957, she married Pandit Prasoon Banerjee, also a Hindustani classical vocalist who also became the disciple of Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan.

At the later stage of her life, due to poor health, she stopped giving public performances. Meera Banerjee left for her heavenly abode on June 28, 2012 in Kolkata.

———————————————————————————————–

Note : Pandit Harishchandra Bali is the same person as H C Bali who was the music director for about 25 Hindi films during 1930s and 40s. His disciples included Pandit Amarnath Chawla, Husnalal and Bhagatram.

Probably, this may be the only song Meera Banerjee sang for a film. In the film, the song has been partially picturised as part of a medley of three songs which follows one after another. The situations in the film seem to be many families travelling in boats. While the first song is a dadra, the second is a folk song and the last one is the Bangla song.

This dadra song in raag Gara is in the traditional lyrics which was first recorded in 1916 in the voice of Gauhar Jaan. Later, many prominent Hindustani classical singers have rendered this dadra including Meera Banerjee and Rasoolan Bai in a more elaborate way. The music director for the film was Tapan Sinha.
