Missing Films of 1960s – 94
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With every episode, we are closing in on clearing all the pending and available films for representation here on our blog. Today, we bring on the 1969 film ‘Pyaar’.

The word ‘Pyaar’ is likely to be one of those which are probably the most used in film titles. I have not done the search, but yes, it would be very interesting to take out a statistics on how many films have this word in their title. That being an interesting exercise in itself, I would take this to the next level – to check how many films are titled simply ‘Pyaar’. In the first five volumes of Geet Kosh, i.e. 1931 to 1980, there have been three films which are so titled. The years are 1940, 1950 and 1969.

The 1969 ‘Pyaar’ is produced under the banner of Film Makers, Calcutta, and is directed by Prahlad Sharma. The cast of actors includes Soma Salkar, Suraj, Sangeeta, Prem, Kavita, Biren, Shekhar, Alka, Jahar Rai, Baby Samli Rai, and Pandit Natwar etc. Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, all of them from the pen of Prahlad Sharma (the director himself). Music is from the mind of V Balsara.

This particular song is a solo sung by Rafi Sb. The hero is trying impress upon his heart throb, not to walk away alone, but to be together. In the process, he tells her about the difficulties trying the negotiate the life’s passages alone.

With this post, we have now introduced 94 films that were earlier not represented on the blog. A few more films are yet waiting to be posted. 🙂

 

Song – Akad Ke Kahaan Chale Meri Jaan  (Pyaar) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Prahlad Sharma, MD – V Balsara

Lyrics

akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan

bada lamba jeevan ka safar
nahin manzil ki tumhen khabar
ghiregi toofaan mein kashti
milegi tumko nahin dagar
samjhi
hamen tum le lo apne saath
kinaare se lag jaaoge
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan

zara aane do mast bahaar
aah haa
khiloge kaliyon se dildaar
aah haa
gulabi hothon ka pee zehar
marenge bhanwre roz hazaar
oh ho ho ho
hiran si aankhon mein le nasha
hamen madhosh banaaoge
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna . . . . gumaan

aji sun lo mere hamdam
nahin ye nakhron ka mausam
zamaane se hum do pyaase
badi hai donon or jalan
haaye
hamaare pehlu mein aao
yakeen hai pyaas bujhaaoge
akele chal na paaoge
meet mere tum kho jaaoge
abhi to kamsin ho nadaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan
akad ke kahaan chale meri jaan
karo na itna haaye gumaan

अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान

बड़ा लंबा जीवन का सफर
नहीं मंज़िल की तुम्हें खबर
घिरेगी तूफाँ में कश्ती
मिलेगी तुमको नहीं डगर
समझी
हमें तुम ले लो अपने साथ
किनारे से लग जाओगे
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान

ज़रा आने दो मस्त बहार
आ हा
खिलोगे कलियों से दिलदार
आह हा
गुलाबी होठों का पी ज़हर
मरेंगे भँवरे रोज़ हज़ार
ओ हो हो हो
हिरण सी आँखों में ले नशा
हमें मदहोश बनाओगे
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना ॰ ॰ ॰ ॰ गुमान

अजी सुन लो मेरे हमदम
नहीं ये नखरों का मौसम
जमाने से हम दो प्यासे
बड़ी हैं दोनों ओर जलन
हाए
हमारे पहलू में आओ
यकीं है प्यास बुझाओगे
अकेले चल ना पाओगे
मीत मेरे तुम खो जाओगे
अभी तो कमसिन हो नादान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान
अकड़ के कहाँ चले मेरी जान
करो ना इतना हाए गुमान

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 16
————————————————

15 songs have been covered so far in the ‘ten-year challenge’ on the blog so far and this will be the 16th post in the series.

As we proceed in this journey, it is getting more and more interesting at least as far as I am concerned. I was not associated with the blog ten years ago, so my browsing through the blog for posts of those days give me an interesting singh on the way posts were appearing on the blog ten year ago. My first comment on the blog would appear on the blog on 15.09.2009.

This process of visiting or revisiting or re-revisiting brings back memories associated with those movies or songs that were covered those days. Some of these movies are those which I have watched when I was growing and some are when I was already a grown up (:) ) person, like from 1989 onwards.

Coming back to the movies of songs that were presented on 13.03.2009 we have the following list;

‘Naiyya-1979’
‘Zakhmee-1975’
‘Saajan-1969’
‘Chitchor-1976’
‘Parwaana-1971’
‘Haqeeqat-1964’
‘Bandhan-1940’
‘Dushman-1939’

All the movies except ‘Saajan-1969’ have achieved ‘all songs covered’ (Yippeeee:) ) status on the blog.

I remember to have watched ‘Saajan-1969’ either during mid-seventies or in late seventies. And since then two songs from this movie were always in my memory and nostalgic for me. Both of these songs viz. ‘resham ki dori’ and ‘saajan saajan pukaaroon galiyon mein’ have already been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is a classical based song where Asha Parekh is performing on a stage. Watching this reminds me of many of her classical dance-based performances in other movies, and which I think were a regular feature in the movies she acted in given her prowess in classical dance.

When I initially checked the songs from ‘Saajan-1969’ I thought I had come across a longer version of this song (or maybe I am mistaken) , but finally at the time of drafting this article I could locateonly a shorter video link.
However, I looked for the audio of this song which has two stanzas, though only one stanza is there in the in movie available online. Knowledgeable readers are requested to throw more light on this. Or maybe, I guess, this song was edited in the movie.

‘Saajan-1969’ was produced and directed by Mohan Sehgal for ‘Delux Films, Bombay’. It had Asha Parekh, Manoj Kumar, Om Prakash, Shabnam, Sulochana, Madan Puri, Jagirdar, Sapru, Raj Mehra, S.P. Sinha, Jankidas, Brahm Bharadwaj, Shammi, Lata Bose, Murad, Iftekhar, Ratan Gaurang, Mirajkar, Parasram, and Narmada Shankar.

This movie had total seven tracks including one music track and one multiple version song. All songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
So far four songs (including one multiple version song) from this movie have been covered.

Today’s song is the fifth song from this movie being posted and that would leave us with only one song remaining to be posted from this movie to take it to the ‘Yippeeee land’ 🙂 (however this remaining song doesn’t seem to be available either on video or audio, we need to search and check or knowledgeable readers can advice and throw more light on this)

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Missing Films of 1960s – 93
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this song, we introduce the film ‘Nai Zindagi’ from 1969. As I check the Geet Kosh listings, I find two more films with the same name – one from 1943 and the second from 1951. The 1943 film has Sheikh Mukhtar and Anees Khaatoon as the lead pair. In the 1951 movie, the lead pair is Nirupa Roy and Amarnath. The one in 1969 has Dev Kumar and Kumkum as the lead stars.

This film is produced under the banner of Naaz Productions and is directed by Dada Pathaare. The star cast of this film is listed as Prithviraj, Kumkum, Dev Kumar, Jeevan, Kan Mohan, Meenakshi, Niranjan Sharma, Jagirdar, Ratnamala, Gopikrishan, and Madhumati.

The film has 6 songs, all written by Prem Dhawan. Music is composed by Chitragupt. The song presented today is rendered by Lata Mangeshkar. In this song, the lady is expressing her desire to meet her beloved again, calling out to him – that her tresses are flowing like a snake, and he should come as a snake charmer. Given that Kumkum is the leading lady, my thought is that this song could have been performed by her on the screen. But that is just a guess. I request other knowledgeable friends who may have seen this film, to please add more information about the film and this song.

With this post, the 1969 film ‘Nai Zindagi’ makes a debut on our blog.

 

Song – Bikhri Hain Laten Naagan Ki Tarah  (Nai Zindagi) (1969) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh
tu ban ke sapera aa jaa

bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh
tu ban ke sapera aa jaa
bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh. . .

bhooli
kabhi raahen
milte hi tumse nigaahen
oo oo oo
bhooli kabhi raahen
milte hi tumse nigaahen
behki nazar to hum behke
behki nazar to hum behke
bheki dagar kadam behke
kahaan jaaun
ye to bata jaa
bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh
tu ban ke sapera aa jaa
bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh. . .

chal di
tere sang mein
mohey rang le apne hi rang mein
oo oo oo
chal di
tere sang mein
mohey rang le apne hi rang mein
mann ka diya jala baithi
mann ka diya jala baithi
sapne tere saja baithi
piya mujhko galey laga ja
bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh
tu ban ke sapera aa jaa
bikhri hain laten nagan ki tareh. . .

Blog Day : 3779 Post No. : 14759

For me, this is a crush that still endures – a crush that I have never gotten over. Since the days when I first saw her in ‘Talash’ (1969) – and the song – “Kar Le Pyaar Karne Ke Din Hain Yahi” – a part of me has always remained smitten with her image and her thoughts. Helen, aah Helen – the ultimate danseuse of the silver screen. Helen – whose art has established the gold benchmark as a dancer, for all measures – from the past, and maybe, forever in the future. For sincerely, till this time, no other dancer has come close to this ultimate – in grace, in innovation, in energy, in movement – in every aspect of this art form.

It is said that the classical dance forms of India, are probably the most expressive traditional dances. The dancers are coached to develop the enhanced expressions for all the human emotions. The artist is taught not just to exhibit a series of well coordinated movements, which of course is very pleasing to the senses, but it is imperative for them to also communicate the emotions through the facial expressions, body language and the finer movements like twitching and trembling of specific muscles and body parts. The art of the Kathak, Bharat Natyam, Khatakali, etc. is so very refined in this aspect, and the aspiring artists are trained from a very young age.

As far as I am aware, Helen simply started dancing in films (in her teens, as early as when she was 13). She probably has no formal training in any dance form. And yet, seeing Helen on screen, in all the dancing forms, is an experience that flows across and covers the entire spectrum of human emotions and human exchange. In a career that spans almost seven decades, from the end of 1940s to the present day, she has likely appeared in 600+ films, and has regaled the audiences with that many colors and flavors of practically any dance form that may exist on this planet – rhumba, prancing, conga, frolic, folk, swing, rock n’ roll, spin, skip, step, samba, kabuki, disco, cabaret, jive, jump, cha cha cha, foxtrot, cavort, flamenco, waltz, boogie, santoso, flit, jig, jitterbug, hustle, gambol, polka, hop, sway, bunny hop, tap, shimmy, careen, salsa, mambo etc. – and of course, lavani and bhangra too. 🙂

Seeing her in so many different avatars of dancing, one is convinced that rhythm is naturally ingrained into her, and that there is almost a divine intervention here that allows her to pick up any choreography and perform exceedingly pleasing movements to it. The expression of emotions come to her so naturally – and the graceful flow of movements that is so excellently effortless – when she is in front of the camera, she actually knows what she is into. Such realization in the mind brings about a natural performance that simply cannot be executed in any better way. Unlike many of her ilk that have also performed on the Indian screen – yes, she knows, she is fully aware of what she is into.

There are a handful of rare performances by her that are not accompanied by any song. One of the finest, and in my humble opinion, her best such performance is a songless dance from the film ‘Hulchul’ (1971). Folks may remember this stage dance – for the variety of dance forms that are packed into this maybe 9 or 10 minutes performance, the multiple emotions that flow through it, and the significant message this dance experience is attempting to convey. (I tried to bring on this dance clip to our blog, but Atul ji is uncertain whether it qualifies. 😉 Maybe, I will try again.)

For me and my puppy-love heart, Helen is an ageless wonder that I adore. Sweet sixteen – that is what she is in my books, and that is how she is going to be, always.

And that also brings up today the most appropriate song of hers – to wish her a very happy birthday. The film is ‘Toofaan’ from 1969. The words are from the pen of Akhtar Romani. Music for this peppy and well paced dance number is created by Daan Singh. The singing voice – Asha Bhosle, probably the longest lasting partnership of singing voice and dancing steps on the Hindi screen.

Sharing the screen with Helen in this song is Dara Singh, whose birth anniversary just came two days ago (19th Nov). With this song we also remember him – he would have been 90 this year.

The dance is a typical folk dance from north India, performed in a very rural setting. Just see how wonderfully, this ordained Queen of the Cabaret – how wonderfully she is executing this oh so typically a rural folk dance.

And the words of the mukhda,

laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

Dear Helen, always young, always fresh, always sixteen – always sweet sixteen – forever.

Song – Laaga Mohe Ab Ki Baar (Toofaan) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Akhtar Romani, MD – Daan Singh

Lyrics

laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal
duniya pukaare solah baras ki
dekho chali re kataar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

nainon mein kajra
zulfon mein gajra
haathon mein mehndi racha ke
gaalon pe laali
pairon mein paayal
maathe pe bindiya sajaa ke
dekhoon jo darpan awaaz aaye..e..e..e
dekhoon jo darpan awaaz aaye
khil ye gayo re singaar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

logon ke darr se
mein apne ghar se
panghat mein ja na sakoon
panghat to kya
main apne hi angnaa
ghoonghat hataa na sakoon
ghoonghat jo sarke awaaz aaye..e..e..e
ghoonghat jo sarke awaaz aaye
hamri bhi kismat sanwaar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal
duniya pukaare solah baras ki
dekho chali re kataar
o baanke piya sun sun ke rang bhayo laal
laaga mohe ab ki baar
o baanke piya pandrah pe ek nayo saal

My affair with Tanuja (one of the many that I had during my school years) started when I first saw her in a film on Doordarshan. If I remember correctly, it was ‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’ from 1966. The song was “Aapke Haseen Rukh . . .”. The way this song is filmed, Tanuja looks such a pretty enchanting young lady, as the camera pans in on her with sunlight behind, the rays of the sun diffracting from her open tresses. At that time, I did not even know her name. Just that face, and the vision of sunlight reflecting from her hair, and I lost my heart to her.

Next meeting with her was probably ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967). Being a supporting role, she was on the screen much lesser than the leading lady. And I still did not know her name – I had not yet learnt to remember the names in the credits at the beginning of the film and then mapping them to the actual people who appeared on the screen.

The encounters were infrequent; but the enchantment would continue for some more time, occasionally reinforced by chance photos in Filmfare or Madhuri magazines, and songs in Chitrahaar. It would be much, much later that I would pick up the earlier threads with films like ‘Hamaari Yaad Aayegi’ (1961), ‘Mem Didi’ (1961), ‘Benazir’ (1964) and ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965), ‘Anubhav’ (1971), ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ (1971), ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971) and ‘Do Chor’ (1972). In the contemporary mode, I met her again in ‘Imtihaan’ (1972) and ‘Hamraahi’ (1974). And fell in love all over again with “O Mere Dil Ke Chain. . .” – ‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’ (1972); while still struggling to get into my teens. 🙂

Tanuja – the naughty, sometimes ferocious, playful, mischievous – an incisive smile and a twinkling gleam in the eyes. The best image in the mind is when she makes changes to her household in ‘Anubhav’, and Sanjeev Kumar comes home from work, and she opens the door, grabs him by his necktie and pulls him behind her into the house. Or her first encounter with Vinod Khanna in ‘Imtihan’ and she drenches him by mistake, with the garden hose. Many such images overflow in the mind – including the startling somewhat senior role of Padmini Kolhapure’s elder sister in law in ‘Prem Rog’ (1982). That was sure a let down to the discerning teen-end mind, who believed that Tanuja could never, would never grow up from her impish presence. A teen-age heart shattered, and a puppy love story spun off into oblivion. 😦  🙂

Tanuja – the second daughter of Shobhna Samarth, and younger sister of Nutan, was born in Bombay on 23rd Sep, 1943. Into the films as a child artist by 1950, she made her maiden appearance as Nutan’s younger sister on screen in ‘Hamari Beti’ (1950). She continued to appear in films as a child artist. Her first senior romantic role was in 1961 – Kedar Sharma’s film ‘Hamari Yaad Aayegi’. And then a progressive career that continues to be active till the present time. She is 75 years (as of yesterday).

A grand happy birthday to Tanuja, as I remember my puppy crush on her with the lines I used to hum for her – “Yaari Ho Gai Yaar Se Lak Tunu Tunu”. 😀

You wouldn’t believe it, but I was totally unaware till the time yesterday as I started checking out the available material on her life and career, that she is Kajol’s mother. You can call me anything, but that is the fact that is. 😀

In my opinion, the film ‘Gustaakhi Maaf’ (1969) is one of the best comedies of Hindi screen. I saw this film for the first time on Doordarshan (what else), sometimes in second half of 1970s. Tanuja in a double role, paired opposite to Sanjeev Kumar and Sujit Kumar, playing two artist brothers in the film, who own a photo studio shop.

The film’s twin role is Tanuja’s handiwork. Twin sisters separated at childbirth. One remains in the town, and the second one is taken away to another destination. Fate would have it, that after twenty years, the sister living away, returns to visit this town. In the town, the other sister is already quite fitfully romantically involved with Sujit Kumar, the elder of the two brothers. The appearance of the twin sister of course creates numerous hilarious problems, but the high point comes when the out of town sister falls for Sanjeev Kumar, the younger brother. These scenes are some of the best in the film – Tanuja is trying to woo Sanjeev Kumar out of genuine interest, and Sanjeev is horrified and appalled that his future sister-in-law, and the bride to be of his elder brother, is playing romantic hooky with him. With nobody the wiser, the situation creates confusions galore, as all well wishers get together and carry off the in-town sister to a mental asylum in a straight jacket, believing whole heartedly that the young lady is struck with the split personality syndrome. And when the senior doctor at the asylum turns out to be V Gopal, one can imagine what twists and turns the situations will take. By a directorial intervention, the out of town sister also appears at the asylum – she is in search of someone else. With both the twins now present in the hospital, and everyone still unaware of what the crux of the problem is, it does carry all the ingredients to carry the situation towards a hilarious climax extremum. Happy ending of course, all sorted out and the two brothers get twin sister wives.

The song presented with this post is from the passage that the out of town sister is trying to woo Sanjeev Kumar, who is completely convinced that his future sister in law is making an ‘illegal‘ pass at him. The lady wants a portrait to be done in a scenic setting. Convinced that his future sis in law has lost it, Sanjeev tries to humour her by going along with the charade. But once reaching the scenic spot, when the lady breaks into a song of longing, that is too much for Sanjeev, and he tries to wriggle his way out of the situation.

Seriously, if you have not yet watched this film, then add it your list of things to do before departing from the planet. Till about a couple of years ago, this film was extremely unavailable, and a rare possession. But today, it is available on YT, so the rarity angle is gone. However, the humorous confusions angle is still the prime draw for this film.

Song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, with music by Sapan Jagmohan. Singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. And the fun part is watching Tanuja’s antics and expressions as she, armed with this song, tries to take on the fortifications of a bewildered young man. A real treat to watch.

Many happy returns of the day, Tanuja ji – may the laughter never cease.

Song – Sajna Mera Jiyara Jaley (Gustakhi Maaf) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

“Raahgeer”(1969) was directed by Tarun Majumdar for Geetanjali-Chitradeep, Calcutta. The movie had Vishwajeet, Sandya Roy, Shashikala, Padma, Nirupa Roy, basant Chaudhary, Kanhaiyalal, Anwar Hussain, Pahadi Sanyal, Ifthikar, Prasenjit, Asit Sen, Chaman Puri, Savita Chatterji, Ram Avtar, Rasheed Khan, C S Dubey etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it, and the songs were suprize packages. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Raahgeer”(1969) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Just listen to this rare song. You will agree with me that this movie contains lots of surprise packages and this song is one of them.


Song-Baabu ghabraate hain (Raahgeer)(1969) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

babu ghabraate hain
babu ghabrate hain
chori chori aankhon se
chori chori aankhon se teer chalaate hain
beebi sach kehti ho
beebi sach kehti ho
chonch to hai baahar
aur ande mein rehti ho
beebi sach kahti ho

chhaila mere rangeele
dikhne mein bhole se
chakhne mein zahreele
dikhne mein gudiya ho
bholi bhaali samjhe thhe
mirchi ki pudiya ho

chale thhe gulaab lene dekho phulwaadi se
chale thhe gulaab lene dekho phulwaadi se
kaanton se ulajh baithe babu ye anaadi se
ah
pada nahin paala abhi aapka khilaadi se
tinke nikaalo beebi choron ki daadhi se
choron se rishta hai
choron se uljho jaake
banda farishta hai

umm hmm
fariste aapse hote hain aaj hi jaana
fariste aapse hote hain aaj hi jaana
zameen pe kaise huaa kahiye aapka aana
khuda ne aapko apna salaam bheja hai
mizaaj poochhne
aa haan mijaaj poochhne ko ye ghulaam bheja hai

waah
suna hai aapke rishte se chanda maama hain
khuda ke paas wahaan aapka nishaama hai
he he
kamaal karte hain
har baat boojh lete hain
biraadari ko
biraadari ko badi zaldi soongh lete hain

ye gamchha baandh ke kya haandi saaf karte hain
ham aapson ki tabeeyat ko saaf karte hain
ja tumhaare jaise bade majnu maare phirte hain
ki laila laila gali mein pukaar phirten hain

tumhi ko laila banaaya hai to jawaab nahin
kahin khuda ki tabeeyat bhi to kharaab nahi
bater jaisi do aankhen laga ke bhej diya
ya seedha kabr se waapas uthha ke bhej diya
jahaan mein aap jaisi aur koi cheez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin
tameez seekho agar baat ki tameez nahin

There are some artists who are known for playing serious roles and then there are some others who are known for their light hearted roles. What happens when the twains meet ?

When the actor playing light hearted stuff is Kishore Kumar then one can be assured that he would have the effect of spreading cheers and laughter all around even if he is in the company of serious looking people.

In the past, we have seen Kishore Kumar acting opposite tragedy queens like Meena Kumari and Nutan, and the results were comedy movies.

Here is another such example. Here Kishore Kumar ties up with a somble lyricist (Gulzar) and a sombre music director (Hemant Kumar). And what is the result ? A rip roariring comic song.

Here is this song from “Raahgeer”(1969). This comedy sung is sung to the tune of “Om Jai Jagdeesh Hare”. But it is no bhajan. This song takes the micky out of “Vaidhya” viz village doctors. Just listen to this rip roaring song. Surprisingly, this song has ended up becoming an obscure song. It deserrves to find its place among Kishore Kumar’s memorable comedy songs.


Song-Vaidh ke palle pade (Raahgeer)(1969) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

hmhm
ang ang mein aag lagi hai
arre arre haab
jod jod mein jwaala
chooran goli dawa na de to
dede zahar ka pyaala
haan aan aan aan aan

vaidh ke palle pade
kaise vaid ke palle pade
marta mar jaaye rog se rogi
vaidh se kaun lade
aise vaidh se kaun lade
vaidh ke palle pade
kaise vaidh ke palle pade
arre marta mar jaaye rog se rogi
vaidh se kaun lade
aise vaidh se kaun lade
haan

roz savere mandir jaaye
om namah shivaay
namah namah namah namah namah
paise na parsaad chadhaaye
kahta hai koi le gaya haiga
bhagwan de de mauqa aisa
bhagwan de de
he he he he he he
ke sabko taap chade
kaise vaidh ke palle pade
vaidh ke palle pade
kaise vaidh ke palle pade
arre marta mar jaaye rog se rogi
vaidh se kaun lade
aise vaidh se kaun lade

vaid ne ek sansaar basaaya
har praani beemaar banaaya
vaid ne ek sansaar basaaya
har praani beemaar banaaya
kaanon se bahre bechaare
rone se andhe hon saare
rone se
ae ae ae ae ae ae hey
hey
arre hanse to daant jhade
kaise vaidh ke palle pade
vaidh ke palle pade
kaise vaidh ke palle pade
arre marta mar jaaye rog se rogi
vaidh se kaun lade
aise vaidh se kaun lade

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

boley re
Boley re boley morni boley
Boley boley re boley morni boley
saj dhaj ke jab chale morni
baadal ka dil doley

Boley boley re boley morni boley

chhoo lene ko tarse koi
o o o
chhoo lene ko tarse koi
paas koi aane ko
paana mushqil
?? tadapta hai har dil paane ko
aise jalwe kahaan milenge
dil ke bahlaane ko
Boley boley re
boley morni boley
Boley boley re
boley morni boley

mahangi hai daulat ke daamon
o o o
mahangi hai daulat ke daamon
dil ke daamon sasti
ang ang se teer chale aur
saaye mein chhalke masti
halchal mein pad gayi hai dekho
dil waalon ki basti
Boley boley re boley morni boley
Boley boley re boley morni boley

Tujhe kiya o kitna mana (Jaalsaaz)(1969) Singers-Suman Kalyanpur, Krishna Kalle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-G S Kohli

Lyrics

tujhe kiya o kitna mana
chori chori ye tera dekhna
hoy
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye

tujhe kiya o kitna mana
chori chori ye tera dekhna
hoy
uyi allah sab log samjh gaye
uyi allah sab log samjh gaye

bindiya hanse lajaaye kajra
bairi kangna khanke
aa ha
laakh chhupaaya phir bhi khul gaye
bhed ye saare man ke
aa aa
teri nazar to daga kar gayi ee
teri kasam main to mar gayi
duniya ye saari muskaaye haaye
dil mera sharam se dooba jaaye haaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye

tujhe kiya o kitna mana
chori chori ye tera dekhna
haaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye

dekh ke tujhko dil dhadke
bin dekhe raha na jaaye
aa ha
dil ki haalat aisi ho to
kya koi samjhaaye
aa aa aa
tere bina kahin karaar nahin
o tera koi aitbaar nahin
kyu mujhe itna sataaye
haay julmi re
kyun aise tadpaaye haay
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye

tujhe kiya o kitna mana
chori chori ye tera dekhna
haaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye
uyi allah sab log samajh gaye

After completing the recording, Mukesh had commented – people will remember you for this song. He was talking to the music director, and was expressing his emotions having just rendered a beautiful composition. The music director – Daan Singh. The song – “Wo Tere Pyaar Ka Gham” (from the film ‘My Love’ (1970)). Prophetic words, in some ways, yes, because this song is still on the list of favorites of the lovers of this music. But does everyone remember Daan Singh in connection with this song – I am not sure.

A composer with a huge talent, which was matched in his lifetime only by the immense neglect with which the industry has treated him. He had blessings from maestros like Khemchand Prakash and Anil Biswas, but the tinsel world in Bombay did not welcome him enough. The tracks from the unreleased film ‘Bhool Na Jaana’ (c 1965) should have been a sign for any discerning producer concerned with the quality of music in his films. But it was not to be so. Daan Singh spent a few frustrating years in Bombay, and then returned to Jaipur, and continued to work at the AIR Jaipur station.

A career that talks of just maybe five films. ‘Bhool Na Jaana’, mid sixties, unreleased; ‘Toofaan’, 1969, a Dara Singh action film; ‘My Love’, 1970, a romantic story with big name stars – Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore – did not succeed at box office; ‘Bawandar’, 2000, in the final edit, all songs went off screen, and the music remained just on the album; ‘Bhobar’, 2011, Rajasthani film, one song.

And then, on June 18, 2011 itself, he passed away after a brief illness – unsung, un-acknowledged. A sad conclusion, especially when one has heard his creations. Seven years have passed – we honor and remember him on this day.

Today’s song is from the 1969 film ‘Toofaan’. Although an action/adventure film for the B-grade circuit, the music of this film simply great. Here is a soft romantic number sung by Asha Bhosle. The lyrics are written by Akhtar Romani. On screen, the song is performed by actress Anita, who is attempting to entice and seduce Dara Singh, probably in preparation for the arrival of other members of the gang.

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Husn Mein Bhi Hai Nasha  (Toofaan) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Akhtar Romani, MD – Daan Singh

Lyrics

husn mein bhi hai nasha
jaam mein bhi hai nasha
peene waale dekh pee ke
farq hai donon mein kya
husn mein bhi hai nasha
jaam mein bhi hai nasha

ye adaayen ye nazaare
ye lachak ye shokhiyaan
tujhko masti mein pukaare
koi tera meharbaan
aag ye tu ne lagaai
aag ye tu hi bujha
husn mein bhi hai nasha
jaam mein bhi hai nasha

aaj dil behke to behke
hosh ka mat naam le
aaj dil behke to behke
hosh ka mat naam le
do ghadi madhosh reh ke
bekhudi se kaam le
khud bhi pee aankhon se meri
aur mujhko bhi pila
husn mein bhi hai nasha
jaam mein bhi hai nasha

aaj har parda utha de
tujhko chaahat ki kasam
aaj har doori mita de
tujhko teri hi kasam
main bana doon husn tujhko
ishq tu mujhko bana
husn mein bhi hai nasha
jaam mein bhi hai nasha
peene waale dekh pee ke’
farq hai donon mein kya
husn mein bhi hai nasha
jaam mein bhi hai nasha

हुस्न में भी है नशा
जाम में भी है नशा
पीने वाले देख पी के
फर्क है दोनों में क्या
हुस्न में भी है नशा
जाम में भी है नशा

ये अदाए एं ये नज़ारे
ये लचक ये शोखियाँ
तुझको मस्ती में पुकारे
कोई तेरा मेहरबाँ
आग ये तु ने लगाई
आग ये तू ही बुझा
हुस्न में भी है नशा
जाम में भी है नशा

आज दिल बहके तो बहके
होश का मत नाम ले
आज दिल बहके तो बहके
होश का मत नाम ले
दो घड़ी मदहोश रह के
बेखुदी से काम ले
खुद भी पी आँखों से मेरी
और मुझको भी पिला
हुस्न में भी है नशा
जाम में भी है नशा

आज हर पर्दा उठा दे
तुझको चाहत की कसम
आज हर दूरी मिटा दे
तुझको तेरी ही कसम
मैं बना दूँ हुस्न तुझको
इश्क़ तू मुझको बना
हुस्न में भी है नशा
जाम में भी है नशा
पीने वाले देख पी के
फर्क है दोनों में क्या
हुस्न में भी है नशा
जाम में भी है नशा
