Hullo Atuldom

Last year, in July, I discovered that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” as a title has been used twice in Bollywood. I have written briefly about this in this post. Then I went on to speak about the “Ghar Ka Chiraag” of the ’80s.

Today we are revisiting “Ghar Ka Chiraag” of the ’60s. Four of its songs are present on the blog.

Song Date of post Reamrks
Aao tumhen bataaoon ke maa kya hai 17 september 2012 (debut on the blog)
Aaj rota hai kyun 17 September 2012 (rare song as it is filmed on Dev Kumar who normally played a baddie.)
Ik paise ka sawaal hai mere daata 14 September 2016 (there is a comment to this post saying that all the big names in the cast had miniscule screen-time)
Jaane kaise chori chori balmaa ne dekha 22 June 2017

The last post from this movie was nearly five years back. The movie had six songs in all, let us take it a step closer to yyiippeeeehood. The songs of the movie were written by Kaifi Azmi and tuned by Madan Mohan. Only three singers were used:- Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi. Jagdev Bhambri was the producer- director and Hrishikesh Mukherjee was the editor. As per the comments posted (to an earlier post) Dev Kumar and Indrani Mukherjee were the lead with Dharmendra and Biswajeet making special appearances. I would like some reader who has more information about the film to enlighten us as to Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Chand Usmani and Abhi Bhattacharya’s roles in the film.

The song from this movie, that Atulji posted, in July 2012, was a rare song as it was filmed on Dev Kumar. Dev Kumar was born Chaman Lal Kohli in 1930 who was a fan of Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand. Hope that explains why he called himself ‘Dev Kumar’ in films. (More on Dev Kumar can be found in this video of Tabassum Talkies)

Today’s song is in memory of Madan Mohan the creator of such wonders as “Dil dhoondhta phir wahi”, “koi patthar se na maare”, “meri yaad mein tum na aansoo bahana”, “tumse bichhad ke chain kahan hum payenge”, “agar mujhse mohabbat hain”, “aap ki nazron ne samjha pyar ke kaabil” and 624 other songs in 93 movies (as per the stats tab of our blog).The blog already has 560 of Madan Mohan’s compositions. Additionally. the stats tab says that three songs written by him and six sung by him are on the blog.

There are stalwarts among the blog’s followers who will tell us that Madanji’s father – Rai Bahadur Chunilal Kohli – desperately tried to keep him away from the film industry. He was schooled in Lahore, Mumbai and Dehradun. His journey in the entertainment world began with All India Radio, where he was a program assistant first at Lucknow then Delhi. He loved singing and 1947/48 saw him record a ghazal or two. He also recorded duets, with Lata Mangeshkar (who considered him to be her brother) under Ghulam Haider for the 1948 released “Shaheed”; but the songs were not used in the movie. Initially he was assistant to composers Shyam Sunder, SD Burman etc. (need confirmation on all of these from the stalwarts among the blog’s followers) He passed away on 14th July 1975 when he was only 51.
I know of at least two movies of the new millennium that paid homage to this maestro who was fond of ghazals in their own small style

(1) the Amitabh Bachchan- Akshay Kumar- Bobby Deol starrer “Ab tumhare hawale watan saathiyo” used the cross-line of one of Madanji’s popular songs from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964)

(2) Yash Chopra’s “Veer Zaara” was a more fitting tribute to the composer (my opinion) where we can enjoy Madanji’s, hitherto, unused tunes.
I have read somewhere that he amassed an amazing record of compositions, the majority of which were either unutilized for lack of appropriate films or alternate tunes for his albums.

Our Rajaji has poured his thoughts on Madan Mohanji into this post.


Song-Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1967) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Kaifi azmi, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
mehlon se kabhi to nikalte ho
dekhe hain kabhi unke aansoo
thhukra ke jinhen tum chalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

kam se kam insaan samjho
in kismat ke maaron ko
aahen chhalni kar denge
sone ki deewaaron ko
patthar dil bhi badal daalo
kapde jaise badalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

nirdhan kaise jeete hain
ye tum kaise jaanoge
apna dil jab tootegaa
sab ka gham (?) pehchaanoge
kaanton par bhi chalo ik din
phoolon per to macahlte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

jiske sapne chheene hain
usko meethhe sapne do
jiske armaan loote hain
usko armaan apne do
kuchh to karke dikhaao tum
baithhe ho aankhen malte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
mehlon se kabhi to nikalte ho
dekhe hain kabhi unke aansoo
thhukra ke jinhen tum chalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

Blog Day :

5069 Post No. : 16988

Today 4th June 2022 is the 86th birth anniversary of actress Nutan, or I must say one of greatest and finest actress of Hindi Cinema. She is undoubtedly my most favorite actress from Hindi movies.

Nutan was born on 4th June 1936 and passed away on 21st February 1991.

Today, in this post I am not going to discuss here detailed biography, but I would only like to list some of her movies which I get to watched till date. I might be forgetting some which I would have watched with elders in the family when I was a child.

I will start with the movie ‘Saraswatichandra-1968’. I still remember that as a child learning in 7th or 8th standard when I get to watch the movie ‘Saraswatichandra (1968)’ (in black and white) during the weekly screening of movies at our colony club we were staying then.

After watching this movie, I have never forgotten this face and the song ‘phool tumhe bheja hai khat mein’. There was a girl in our class having same face cut as that of Nutan, and that girl remained my crush forever thereafter.

Around the same period that is 1976 to 1983 I get to watch her ‘Dil Hi To Hai’, ‘Kanhaiyya’ ‘Chhalia’ in our colony club.

I think I had also watched ‘Anuraag’ and ‘Yaadgaar’ with my parents.

I do not remember correctly but I must have watched ‘Baarish’, ‘Paying Guest’, ‘Seema’ ‘Manzil’, ‘Anari’, ‘Bandini’, ‘Saudagar’, ‘Meri Jung’ on TV.

I watched her ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ many times and that remained one of my ‘all-time favorite movies’. First I watched it on Video cassettes and later-on on TV channels.

I watched her ‘Khaandaan’, ‘Milan’, ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’, ‘Karma’, and ‘Naam’ during my stay at Parli Vaijnath (1985-1988). I had bought the VCD of ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’ recently (2004-2010).

I may be forgetting some movies which I might have watched. But whatever movies of her I watched I had always likened her roles and her acting. I think she was the most gracious and admired and respected heroine of her times.

Today on her birth anniversary I am presenting a song picturised on her in the movie ‘Meharbaan’. I have yet to watch this movie.

“Meharbaan-1967” was directed by A. Bhim Singh for ‘A.V.M., Madras’. It was produced by A.V. Meiyappan. It had Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Mehmood, Sudesh Kumar, Bhalla, Shaymlal, Jankidas, Umesh Sharma, Ramavtaar, Rajkishore, Mukri, Sulochana, Shashikala, Shyama, Raj Mehra, Ramesh Deo, Ashim Kumar, Kumari Padma, Master Levi, Jayanthi, Bharathi and others.

Here is a brief about this movie as taken from ‘Wikipedia’,

Shanti Swarup (Ashok Kumar), a wealthy businessman, lives with his three sons Ram, Shyam, and Sunder; his wife Parvati (Sulochana Latkar); widowed daughter Devki (Shashikala): unmarried daughter Geeta; and adopted orphan Kanhaiya.

Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt) is raised as Shanti Swarup’s family member and he in return is very dedicated to this family, especially his adopters – Shanti and Parvati. They come across Laxmi (Nutan) whose parents, known to the Swarups, died and so they also bring Laxmi into their family. Parvati wants Sunder to marry Laxmi, but Sunder wants to marry his lover, Rachna. Through a dramatic twist of events, Kanhaiya marries Laxmi and Sundar marries Rachna. Shanti arranges for Geeta to marry Ramesh, the son of his friend Lala Karamchand. Financial losses cause Shanti to lose all his wealth. Ram and Shyam refuse to help him at all, and Karamchand cancels the impending marriage. Kanhaiya and Laxmi leave the house due to the instance of Shanti to make him self-dependent and also ill-treatment by his sons. But they are given shelter by Laxmi’s long-lost brother Madhu (Mehmood) who doesn’t reveal his identity to Laxmi. Disheartened, depressed and unable to face anyone, Shanti dies. Even as his palatial house is to be auctioned by Karamchand, who is voracious, a devastated Parvati is on her deathbed as she cannot think of living anywhere else, and only a miracle can save the now ruined family, but Kanhaiya saves Karamchands son Ramesh from a car accident. Thus, Karamchand gives the palatial house in favor of Kanhaiya and on turn reunites with the family and fulfils the wishes of Shanti Swaroop.

“Meharbaan-1967” had seven songs written by Rajinder Krishan. Following is the list of songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

Song-Saari duniya mein dekhe hain do anpadh naadaan (Meharbaan)(1967) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Saari duniya mein dekhe hain
Do anpadh naadaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan
Saari duniya mein dekhe hain
Do anpadh naadaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan

Jisne ye sansaar banaaya
Bolo kisne usey padhaaya
Jisne ye sansaar banaaya
Bolo kisne usey padhaaya
Duniya ko sikhlaane waala
Kiske ghar se seekh ke aaya
Is par bhi wo naam ka bhola
Baante sabko gyaan
Baante sabko gyaan
Saari duniya mein dekhe hain
Do anpadh naadaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan

Kahaan padhe ye chaand sitaare
Jo dete jag ko ujiyaare
Kahaan padhe ye chaand sitaare
Jo dete jag ko ujiyaare
Us gyaani se moorakh achha
Jo duniya ke kaam sanwaare
Paas hai jiske dhan sewa ka
Wo sachchaa dhanwaan
Wo sachchaa dhanwaan
Saari duniya mein dekhe hain
Do anpadh naadaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan

Jo apne bal ko pehchaane
Haar kisi se kyun wo maane
Jo apne bal ko pehchaane
Haar kisi se kyun wo maane
Karm ko apne dharam jo samjhe
Kaun aayega usey jhukaane
Chhod udaasi kahe ye daasi
O bhole insaan
O bhole insaan
Saari duniya mein dekhe hain
Do anpadh naadaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan
Ik tum dooje bhagwaan

5059 Post No. : 16973

Today 25th May’2022 is Remembrance Day of actor Sunil Dutt (born as Balraj Dutt, 6 June 1929 — 25 May 2005).

Sunil Dutt was active in ‘films’ around us when I was growing up in seventies. I remember to have watched his ‘black & white’ movies like ‘Ek Phool Chaar Kaante’, ‘Main Chup Rahoongi’, ‘Beti Bete’, ‘Gaban’, and movies like ‘Padosan’ and ‘Reshma Aur Shera’ in our colony club when I was a child. I do not remember correctly but I think I had also watched his ‘Post Box no.999’ as well.

Then I have vague memories of watching some of his movies with my parents, or brothers and cousins, and /or elders (like my Uncle) in the family. These are movies like ‘Sadhu Aur Shaitan’, ‘Heera’, ‘Himalay Se Ooncha’, ‘Nagin’, ‘Nehle Pe Dehla’, ‘Shaan’, ‘Yaari Dushmani’, etc.

I watched ‘Jaani Dushman’ alone as my Dad gave me ‘conditional permission’ that I will not take my younger brothers to watch the movie with me. (But the permission came only after I was punished 🙂 the day before it. I had mentioned this episode in my post on the movie ‘Jaani Dushman’.)

As a child we were always interested in watching movies irrespective of the star cast and I enjoyed watching all the above movies.

I get to watch his ‘Rocky’, ‘Dard Ka Rishta’, ‘Raaj Tilak’, ‘Watan Ke Rakhwaale’ ‘Mother India’, ‘Gumraah’, ‘Hamraaz’, ‘Mera Saaya’, ‘Insaan Jaag Uttha’, ‘Amrapali’, ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’, ‘Waqt’, ‘Khandan’ (these I watched during the years from 1983 to 1988. I passed out matriculation in 1983, stayed Akola with my grandparents for my study (but actually playing cricket and watching movies than focusing on studies. From 1985 to 1988 I was staying at Parli Vaijnath (Maharashtra)).

The movies I mentioned above are not appearing in their chronological order of release.

From the above movies, I remember I had watched ‘Padosan’ again in later years also on VCR, TV and online.

In the recent years I had watched his ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ in 2006 in Kachchh. And very recently I watched his ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ online in 2017 when I was in Kenya.

I have not watched today’s movie which is ‘Meharbaan-1967’.

“Meharbaan-1967” was directed by A. Bhim Singh for ‘A.V.M., Madras’. It was produced by A.V. Meiyappan.

It had Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Mehmood, Sudesh Kumar, Bhalla, Shaymlal, Jankidas, Umesh Sharma, Ramavtaar, Rajkishore, Mukri, Sulochana, Shashikala, Shyama, Raj Mehra, Ramesh Deo, Ashim Kumar, Kumari Padma, Master Levi, Jayanthi, Bharathi and others.

Song-Aayegaa aayegaa ik chhail chhabeela aayegaa (Meharbaan)(1967) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
Ik din jo meri chhoti si
Gudiya ko le jaayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega

Bhool ja bachpan ki rang raliyaan
Aaye din sharmaane ke
Bhool ja bachpan ki rang raliyaan
Aaye din sharmaane ke
Chhod ke roti sang saheli
Saajan ke ghar jaane ke
Chaahe ghabraaye
Chaahe muhkdaa chhupaaye
Aane waala to aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega

Laakh chhupa le humse lekin
Chaal teri ye kehti hai
Laakh chhupa le humse lekin
Chaal teri ye kehti hai
Soorat ik albele ki
Teri ankhiyon mein rehti hai
Kaisi bal khaaye
Yahi aas lagaaye
Kab aane waala aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
haan
Aa

Do din ka ab tera basera
Baabul ke is aangan mein
Do din ka ab tera basera
Baabul ke is aangan mein
Kaisa hoga desh piya ka
Jaagi hai chinta man mein
Chain na aaye
Yahi soch sataaye
Ab aane waala aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabila aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabila aayega

Ik din jo meri chhoti si
Gudiya ko le jaayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
Aayega aayega
Ik chhail chhabeela aayega
Aayega aayega

‘Meharbaan’ was directed by A Bhim Singh for AVM, Madras’. It was produced by AV Meiyappan.

It had Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Mehmood, Sudesh Kumar, Bhalla, Shaymlal, Jankidas, Umesh Sharma, Ramavtaar, Rajkishore, Mukri, Sulochana, Shashikala, Shyama, Raj Mehra, Ramesh Deo, Ashim Kumar, Kumari Padma, Master Levi, Jayanthi, Bharathi and others.

‘Meharbaan’ had seven songs that were written by Rajinder Krishan. Following is the list of songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Mera Gadhaa Gadhon Ka Leader Mohd Rafi, Mehmood 09.12.2016

06 Saari Duniya Mein Dekhe Hain Do Anpadh Naadaan Lata Mangeshkar
07 Ik Raaja Ki Sun Lo Kahaani Mohd Rafi 06.06.2021

This movie made its debut on the blog on 21.01.2013 with its song “Ae Mere Dost Ae Mere Humdum” which I had myself shared then as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog. This song is a solo song by Rafi Saab. The second song from this movie, “Mera Gadhaa Gadhon Ka Leader“,  which appeared on the blog was sung by Rafi Saab and Mehmood. This song was posted on 09.12.2016 which is almost after a gap of four years.

The most beautiful and well known song from this movie ” Ik Raaja Ki Sun Lo Kahaani“, a multiple version song – one duet and other solo – was posted on the blog on 06.06.2021 and that was almost after a gap of four and half years from the second song posted on the blog.

I had read about this movie (‘Meharbaan’) earlier when the movie ‘Swarg’ (1990) was released. I had watched ‘Swarg’ then for Rajesh Khanna.

So the name of this movie ‘Meharbaan’ had in my memory since then. When I became associated with this blog, I was under the impression that the songs from this movie should be already there. However, I was in for a surprise when I realized that none of the songs from this movie ‘Meharbaan’ were posted on the blog. I listened to the songs from this movie and noted down the lyrics of all the songs then itself in 2013. This movie will be completing its ten-year run on the blog.

All the songs of ‘Meharbaan’ are composed by the legendary music director Ravi Shankar Sharma known to us as Ravi. Today 3rd March, 2022 is the ninety-sixth birth anniversary of music director Ravi (3 March 1926 – 7 March 2012). On this occasion let us listen to this composition of Ravi. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle. This song, a semi classical song is the only song that Asha Bhonsle sung in this movie.

Only audio of the today’s song is available. (This was the case even then in 2013) I think this song may not have been included in the movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this song and today’s movie.

“Naseehat”(1967) was produced by Dara Singh (Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati , Mohan Choti, etc.

Memsaab, when she was active in her blogging, had done a detailed review of this movie in her characteristic inimitable style.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here are their details:-

Blog post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
2226 Zara dekhiye meri saadgi 9 December 2009 Mahendra Kapoor
5305 Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo 16 January 2012 Asha Bhonsle
13739 Mujhko deewaana na kar 18 November 2017 Asha Bhonsle
16771 Aankhon se ishaara karke hamen 16 January 2022 Asha Bhonsle
16798 Teri aankhon ne in aankhon se jo baat kahi 28 January 2022 Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot, Mahendra Kapoor

Seeing that O P Nayyar was the music director, he had composed some listing music. He tended to have one male singer and one female singer who would sing for all the characters of the movie. The female singer of the movie, namely Asha Bhonsle, is thus used to give playback to the heroine REajshree (south) is three songs. In one song, she gives playback to Helen. In another song, (where Kamal Barot is another female singer), Asha Bhonsle gives playback to Helen clone, namely Madhumati.

If Asha Bhonsle was the female playback singer of choice for O P Nayyar, Rafi was his male playback singer of choice. But those days he had a falling off with Rafi, so he was forced to use another voice, namely Mahendra Kapoor for his male playback singing. This movie is one such movie.

Here is thew sixth and final song of “Naseehat”(1967) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is of course by O P Nayyar.

Mahendra Kapoor had three songs in this movie. He had given playback for three different actors in these three songs.

In the song under discussion, Mahendra Kapoor givbes playback for Mohan Choti, who is seen wooing a lady whom I am unable to identify. This song appears to be part of comic side plot where another comedian pair are likewise seen running around trees in the recommended way of carrying out romance in Hindi movies of those days.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, all the songs of “Naseehat”(1967) have been covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Ya ke tum pe meri jaan shabaab aa gaya (Naseehat)(1967) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

‘Naseehat’ (1967) was produced by Dara Singh (though Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

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

Today (28 January 2022) is the 17th remembrance day of OP Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). On this occasion here is a song from “Naseehat”(1967).

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot and Mahendra Kapoor. SH Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by OP Nayyar.

The song is picturised as a dance song aboard a cruise liner. The music begins as a Beatles type western tune on guitar, but it soon gets converted into an arch-typical OP Nayyar punjabi bhangda dance music. The female dancers could be Helen or even her clone Madumati (both figure in the star cast). Male dancer could be Randhawa. I am not sure So I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancers and others seen in the picturisation.

[Ed Note: As dear Prakash ji confirms, the lead dancers are Madhumati and Sheila Ramchandra, and two of the supporting dancers are Manjula and late Saroj Khan.]


Song-Teri aankhon ne in aankhon se jo baat kahi (Naseehat)(1967) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Kamal Barot, Lyrics-SH Bihari, MD-OP Nayyar
Asha Bhonsle + Kamal Barot
Asha Bhonsle + Kamal Barot + Mahendra Kapoor

Lyrics

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 8
————————————————————————————–

Today 16th January’2022 is the ninetysixth birth anniversary (16.01.1926 – 28.01.2007) of Omkar Prasad Nayyar whom we know by the name of O.P. Nayyar.

His name and music need no introduction. He was the ‘legend’ and has given us many songs to listen and cherish forever. He crafted a special place for his music in the annals of HFM and his music will be loved till it lives on this planet.

I am big fan of OPN’s music and thought that I was aware of all his movies where he composed music for. So, when I got this mail from our dear Prakash ji containing a song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’ I was surprised as the name of the movie didn’t ring any song in my mind. I feel very awkward or rather shameful of myself that I was not aware of this movie and its songs.

Well, so I decided to present this song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’, and that way I can listen the other songs of this movie too.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 09.12.2009 with its song ‘Zaraa dekhiye meri saadgi’ and after that only two songs from this movie have been added on the blog so far. One on 16.01.2012 and one on 18.11.2017.

Today after ten years of 16.01.2012 the movie becomes eligible for one of its songs under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge – 2012-2022’. (Incidentally one more movie where music is composed by O.P. Nayyar is eligible today under BTYC as its’ songs were presented on 16.01.2012 and this movie is yet to be Yippeeee’ed. This movie is ‘Kalpana-1960).

Let us see the list of movies represented on the blog ten years back on 16.01.2012.

Here is the list.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai/a> Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs posted
Beqasi hadd se jab guzar jaaye/a> Kalpana (1960) 5 songs posted
Ye hariyaali aur ye raastaa Hariyaali Aur Raastaa(1962) All Songs covered
Aankhen hamaari hon sapne tumhaare hon Mere Armaan Mere Sapne (1963) 3 songs posted
Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo Naseehat(1967) 3 of 6 songs posted/td>
Muhabbat ho gayee jinse Kahin Din Kahin Raat(1968) All Songs covered

As mentioned above today we listen to a song from ‘Naseehat-1967’.

This movie was produced by Dara Singh (as mentioned by Atul ji in one of earlier posts).

‘Nasihat’ or ‘Naseehat-1967’ was directed by Om Patwar for ‘Deedar Movies, Bombay’.
It had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

This movie had seven soundtracks including one music track and that left us with six songs which are listed below.

Four songs out of six were written by S.H. Bihari (1,2,4 & 5 from the below list) and two songs were written by Aziz Kashmiri (3 & 6 in the below list)

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by O.P. Nayyar.

Hullo Atuldom

“Mehrban” (1967) as spelt in the titles of the movie was an AVM (Madras) production written and directed by A. Bhimsingh. It’s cast was headed by Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Sunil Dutt and had Ramesh Deo, Shyama, Ashim kumar, Jayanthi, Shashikala, Bharathi, Mehmood, Soodesh Kumar and Sulochana Latkar. The dialogues and lyrics were written by Rajinder Kishan and Ravi was the music director. The movie had seven songs of which the blog has the following two.

Song Date of posting
Ae mere dost ae mere hamdam 21 January 2013
Mera gadha gadhon ka leader 9 December 2016

As we can see this movie last made its appearance in 2016 with a wonderful post by Rajaji who was pushed to write by Avinashji. Infact, for the both songs posted, Avinashji was the lyrics contributor.

The 2013 post had a brief synopsis of the movie. It equated the movie to the 1990 David Dhawan directed Rajesh Khanna- Govinda starrer “Swarg”. I happened to see “Mehrbaan” recently and realised that the similarity is limited. Yes, Rajesh Khanna played the rich-man in “Swarg” similar to Ashok Kumar’s character in “Mehrban”. Govinda played the orphan who is devoted to the family similar to Sunil Dutt’s character in “Mehrban”.

The variations in the 1967 movie is that the wealthy couple Shanti Swarup (Ashok Kumar) and Parvati (Sulochana) have three sons and two daughters in addition to being the adoptive parents of Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt). (In “Swarg” the wealthy couple are childess) They also bring in Laxmi (Nutan) whose parents were known to them and who die leaving Laxmi to fend for herself. So, as we can see it is a full house. That gives the story all kinds of good, bad and ugly characters which helps the writer to gives us a three-hour long movie with lots of ‘rona-dhona’ ‘kasam khana and khilana’ etc. i.e. a highly emotional movie. The end is predictable in that all the family members come together and live happily, once again.

Just remembered another variation between “Swarg” and “Mehrban”. In “Swarg” Krishna (Govinda) becomes rich by acting in movies, buys back the property of his ‘sahabji’ (Rajesh Khanna) and teaches the errant brothers a lesson or two before bringing them back to apologise for all the wrongs that they have done. Kanhaiya of ‘Mehrban’ doesn’t wait to earn riches before coming back to set matters right in the adoptive family. Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt) has Laxmi (whom he marries before being sent away from the home by Sulochana) for support whereas Krishna does it with the help of his friend ‘Airport’ (Satish Kaushik).
Also, in ‘Swarg’ Sahabji’s wife dies of shock and in ‘Mehrban’ Shanti Swarup dies leaving his wife to the mercy of his ungrateful children.

‘Swarg’ was said to be a remake of ‘Mehrban’ which itself was a remake from the 1960 Tamil hit ‘Padikkadha Medhai’ (Uneducated Genius) which in turn was a remake of the 1953 Bengali movie ‘Jog Biyog’ which was based on the novel of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. So, that means this story will hold good in any time and age.

We are revisiting this movie today with a duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi but (surprise) it is not a romantic song. In fact, the movie doesn’t have any romantic song, in the true sense of the term. There is a Lata Mangeshkar solo which has Nutan pacifying a sad Sunil Dutt. This song relates the story of Shanti Swarup to his grandchildren.

This is one of five movies where Nutan and Sunil Dutt played the lead. As I was looking up the anniversaries tab of the blog I found that the birth-dates of the two were one day apart. I wondered what scenario it would have been, back then, when the shooting of the movies were on. Nutan would have turned 85 on 4th June and Sunil (birth-name Balraj) Dutt would have been 92. Just a passing thought, their sons are actors too and have acted together in a few movies.

Editor’s note-Lyrics of this song, which turns out to be a multiple version song, were sent by Avinash Scrapwala long ago.

apne malik ke kadmon mein ro ro ke
khush hota charan uske dho dho ke
apna tan man nichhavar woh karta raha
ek ishaare pe malik ke marta raha
hai kahaani magar baat kal hi ki hai
na samjhna ise tum pura..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni

—————————
Rafi solo version
————————–
Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani
Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani

Pehle rehte the saagar kinaare
Ab samaaye dilon mein hamaare
Yaad unki rahegi jahaan mein
Jab talak hai ye chaand aur taare
Jo naa mitaaye mitegi kisi se
Chhodi hai aisi nishaani

Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani
Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani
