Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

Blog Day :

When I checked up the list of movies introduced in the blog chronologically (from the first day of the blog), I found that the first 17 movies which were introduced on the blog on the first 17 days (at the rate of one song a day) have been YIPPEED by now.

But the 18th movie which was introduced in the blog on 5 August 2008 is still unYIPPEED. This movie, “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) made a rollicking debut in the blog with a fantastically entertaining song, Guni janon bhakt janon, sung and enacted by Kishore Kumar. Back then this song was a rare and forgotten song for most music lovers and it was specially uploaded on YT by me.

“Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) was directed by P Madhwan for Screen Gems, Madras. This “social” movie had Hema Malini, Ajay Sahni, Om Prakash, Bobby, Jagdeep, Suresh, Maruti, David, Bindu, Shabnam, Tuntun, Birbal, Padmini, Manmohan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Apart from the above mentioned song, only one more song has been covered in the blog.

The Kishore Kumar song of the movie seems to have stolen the march over other aspects of the movie. I was not even aware who were the lead actors of the movie. When I noticed that “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) was the oldest UNYIPPEED movies in the blog, I decided to something about it. While planning to discuss other songs, I realised that Hema Malini was the leading lady in this movie and that today (16 october 2020) happens to be her birthday, I decided to use this opportunity to discuss a song from “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970) which is oicturised on her.

I just realised that this movie is exactly 50 years old ! And I also realised that Hema Malini (DoB 16 october 1948), who was then 22 years old. She is still active in Public life. She is a member of Parliament from Mathura (UP) and she still gived Dance performances. She is seen in several TV ads. Looking at her, it is impossible to believe that she is 72 years old ! She is easily the best example of agelessness.

On the occasion of her birthday, here is this song from “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970). It is sung by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on Hema Malini and a child artist. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the child artist.
PS-Our inhouse artist recognition expert Prakashchandra tells us that the chilfd artist is “wonder child” Bobby.

We in the blog take this opportunity to with Hema Malini a very happy birthday and wish her many happy returns of the day.

Hullo Atuldom

23rd August was the birthday of the beautiful Saira Banu. She was born to yesteryear actress Naseem Banu and producer Mian Ehsan-Ul-Haq in 1944.

She made her debut opposite Shammi Kapoor in 1961 as the OH! so gorgeous Kashmiri ‘Kali’ with her introduction song being “Kaashmir ki kali hoon main mujhse na rootho babuji”. In all the years, since then she has remained gorgeous and aged gracefully. In between then and now, she was an active star in the Hindi film firmament till about 1976 when Prakash Mehra directed “Hera Pheri” released. She appeared in a cameo with her husband Dilip Kumar in Yash Johar produced and Ramesh Talwar directed “Duniya” (1984) as parents of Rishi Kapoor.

One of the movies-Faisla- that she acted in the 70s released in 1988; this was her last official release. But this beauty had the best costars in the 15-16 years that she was active with ‘Padosan’ opposite Sunil Dutt catapulting her to the top league after which “Victoria No 203” opposite Navin Nischol was a big hit. We have seen her opposite Dharmendra in ‘Jwar Bhata’, ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’, ‘Resham Ki Dori’, ‘Pocketmaar’, ‘Chaitali’, and ‘International Crook’. She was in ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, ‘Balidaan’, and ‘Shaadi’ with Manoj Kumar as her hero. But her pairing with Dilip Kumar in ‘Gopi’, ‘Sagina’ and ‘Bairaag’ was after her marriage to her childhood crush.

As I was preparing the post for wishing the beautiful Saira Banu I looked for possible songs and made a discovery. I always thought that the 1970 releases ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ and ‘Gopi’ would have been Yyippeeeed by now. A thought that came because we have 15800+ songs on our blog and we have been active for 12+ years. I find we have four songs of “Purab Aur Paschim” out a possible eight or nine songs. We have
(1) dulhan chali o pahan chali
(2) Hai preet jahaan ki reet sada, a post that has 51 comments, must be a record. The last comment was on 6th August 2018.
(3) koyi jab tumhaara hriday tod de
(4) purwa suhaani aayi re purwa was the last to be posted.

That too eight years ago. How have we missed posting songs from this movie. Chalo let us take it a step forward.

Here is a song that is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhonsle. It is written by Prem Dhawan and set to music by the brothers Kalyanji- Anandji. The song begins with some dialogue between puppets that are dressed as a Jat and Videshi Mem. The whole event is meant to belittle the westernized character played Saira Banu as Preethi the daughter of an Indian brought up in London. It ends when she realizes that she is being made fun of. (Personally I felt that we take this ‘west is bad east is best’ a little too far)

Incidentally, 24th August happens to mark 20 years since Kalyanji Virji Shah (30 June 1928-24 August 2000) said good bye to this world. He was the music director of such hits as “mera jeevan kora kaagaz kora hi reh gaya”, “rote hue aate hai sab hasta hua jo jaayega”, “jiska koi nahi uska toh khuda hai yaaron” (as Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey solos) and the still-so-popular “Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi”. Of course, the songs I have mentioned were all in the 70s and 80s, years when I was growing up and learning to appreciate songs.

But Kalyanji, of the duo, began as a musician in the early 50s. He was the one who played the Clavioline for the songs of ‘Nagin” that were essentially Hemant Kumar scores. Remember the “Nagin-been” from 1954 which has become the signature tune used in all serpent-related songs, scenes and movies? He formed an orchestra group with his brother Anandji, all those years ago, which performed in and around Bombay (as Mumbai used to be called). His arrival in the industry was in, what is called, the golden period of Hindi Film Music when SD Burman, OP Nayyar, Madan Mohan etc were the compeetition. He still managed to get a foothold “Samrat Chandragupt” was his first film. He was officially joined by his brother Anandji, to form the duo, with movies like Satta Bazaar, Chhalia etc. The long journey of the duo gave us many gems and we treasure all of them lovingly. Thank You Kalyanjibhai- Anandjibhai.

Coming back to today’s song- wishing Saira Banu all health and happiness even if a day late & remembering Kalyanjibhai. Here is that song for which the farmaish/ reminder was made on 6th August 2018.

Mukesh and his co-singers – 6
————————————————

Continuing with the series of the collaboration of Mukesh with his co-singers, I bring forth today his songs with Kishore Kumar. We started this series with Rafi saab and have covered only Talat saab as far as male co-singers are concerned. Kishore Kumar would have been an obvious next choice and in continuation I present this post.

Both singers began their career imitating the great KL Saigal. Mukesh sang the iconic song “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De” from ‘Pehli Nazar’ in 1945 but had begun his singing career in 1940 itself. Kishore Kumar began his singing career much later in 1948, with the song “Marne Ki Duayein Kyun Maangoon” under Kemchand Prakash .

While Mukesh with his failed forays in various departments, settled seriously for playback from 1958, Kishore Kumar tasted fair success in his many inroads of films other than playback. Mukesh and Kishore Kumar in spite of being contemporaries had quite different trajectories. As such it is difficult to write in tandem about the two singers.

They collaborated for a total of only 10 songs. That’s about one song in three years. For this reason, I was again under the impression that all songs of the duo must have been covered. However, two songs are yet to be posted and today I present one of them here.

I missed my table formation on Mukesh songs for these several months and am happy to reproduce below the collection of the songs wherein the two singers have sung together in duets, triads and chorus songs.

 

S.No Name of the Song Movie (Year of release) Other co-singers if any Music Director Lyricist
1 Lo mil gayi degree pyar ki Maalkin (1953) Ram Kamlani Roshan Rajendra Krishan
2 Zindagi hai kyaa Satyakaam (1969) Mahendra Kapoor Laxmikant Pyarelal Kaifi Azmi
3 Yeh kaisa aaya zamana Humjoli (1970) Mehmood Laxmikant Pyarelal Anand Bakshi
4 Tik tik tik tik Kal Aaj aur Kal (1971) Asha Bhonsle Shankar Jaikishan Neeraj
5 Haal chaal theek thaak Mere Apne (1971) Salil Chaudhary Gulzar
6 Tere hamsafar geet hain tere  Dharam Karam (1975) Asha Bhonsle RD Burman Majrooh Sultanpuri
7 Na ho bas mein tere kuch Dharam Karam (1975) Poornima RD Burman Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Arre phenk do jam ko Kabeela (1976) Kalyanji Anandji Farooque Kaiser
9 Hum ko tumse ho gaya hai pyar Amar Akbar Anthony (1977) Rafi, Lata Laxmikant Pyarelal Anand Bakshi
10 Jaaneman jaane jaan Chor Mandali (1983) (UR) Dilraj Kaur Kalyanji Anandji GL Rawal

Going through the above list quickly,

  1. Literally a Kishore Kumar solo was off course hijacked by self to represent the last song of Roshan-Mukesh collaboration to be featured on the blog. It was an opportunity I would never have let go and will remain one of my favourite posts on the blog.
  2. Is what Atul ji rightly says in the post is a light-hearted yet philosophical song. Again, he is right in saying that it’s a rare occasion when the 3 renowned singers came together. Going though the list above, we can safely conclude that it is in fact the only occasion.
  3. Featured in this post will be elaborated below and is probably the only one of its kind in HFM.
  4. Was again represented by self to remember composer Jaikishan on his 44th death anniversary. Here Mukesh and Kishore Kumar are singing for an older and younger generation respectively. More on this later.
  5. Has as many as 30 comments in the post and I would like to reproduce a part of Sadananad ji’s interesting observation. I always felt that whenever Kishore Kumar had sung with one or more other male singers, it was his voice which predominated the song. This song is an exception. It is Mukesh who has dominated with his voice lock, stock and barrel.
  6. Has Atul ji writing a befitting post on the many contributions of Sudhir ji to the blog. Another important feature of the post is the introduction of his program telecast on DD on 27 August 2012 on the occasion of Mukesh’s 36th death anniversary. I request readers to read the post again and watch the telecast in which Sudhir ji was invited to share his views.
  7. Of course is the iconic “Ik Din Bik Jaayega Maati Ke Mol which people usually associate with the solo sung by Mukesh. However as rightly pointed out in the post by our Sadanand ji, there are no less than 4 versions of this song in the film and in this particular triad Mukesh is joined by Kishore Kumar and Poornima also known as Sushma Shrestha. This is the only film in which Mukesh and Kishore Kumar have come together for two songs.
  8. This one is yet to be showcased on the blog and will remain the last of the combo to be featured after this post.
  9. Needs no introduction and is a rare and only one of its kind in HFM but also a landmark song to be posted on the blog on the occasion of representation of 11, 111th song on the blog. Again, the efforts, tricks and circumstances that the bosses engaged to bring forth the celebrations is to be read again to be felt, understood, enjoyed and appreciated.
  10. Was presented by Arunkumar ji in his Lost and Found – Gems from unreleased films series. In this unreleased film which took inordinate time for filming, we have an elderly Raj Kapoor and Ashok Kumar cajoling Bindu in the picturization of the song. This was probably the last film that RK acted.

To write about today’s song – we have Mehmood singing/taking for himself in his own voice, we have Kishore Kumar singing for Mehmood and Mukesh again singing for Mehmood. Have I mixed up the actors? 🙂

No. Mehmood played a triple role in this film ‘Humjoli‘ (1970), playing the roles of three generations of a family. But I must correct myself. It is not three, but 4 – a quartet role, probably the only one of its kind in Hindi films. In the last scene of this film, a new born baby makes an appearance on screen, being the son of the third generation Mehmood. And the face of the baby, as shown in the scene – it is again Mehmood himself.

It will be interesting to know if there are any such songs in which different singers have sung for the same actor in the same song. I personally feel it’s quite a rarity.

This film had multi-lingual make, remake, dubbings etc. I suppose, our Dr. Pradeep will have a feast on the issue in the comments section. I leave the stage open for him.

It’s easy to notice in the featured song, Mehmood of the mid-generation enacting Raj Kapoor’s acting, dialogue delivery and even the looks. I suppose it’s from the film JDMGBH.

The other songs from this film are well known. However only 3 out of the 6 songs have been represented as on date and this post covers the fourth featuring the singers under discussion. In this song as well as song no 4 in the list above, Mukesh sings for a mid-generation whereas Kishore sings for the younger one. From these examples, it is sort of evident that film makers and composers preferred Kishore Kumar to sing for newcomers and younger actors. In many of the songs of the 70s, Mukesh was usually resigned to giving playback for boatman, title songs etc. Off course there were huge exceptions such as the film ‘Kabhie Kabhi’ (1976) and the songs sung for Manoj Kumar.

There are quite a few films in which both Mukesh and Kishore Kumar were playback singers though not necessarily singing a duet or a triad in the same song. One such film is off course ‘Kati Patang’ (1971) in which Kishore Kumar has 3 glorious solos. Surprisingly RD Burman roped in Mukesh for another solo playback on Rajesh Khanna. Mukesh very much stands his ground in this solo “Jis Gali Mein Tera Ghar Na Ho Baalmaa“. This song as we all are aware is filmed on the famous Nainital lake. I am discussing this particular song as I have always wondered under what category this song would feature.

I have seen the film and have some fair idea of the plot. However, in this particular song, the look on Asha Parekh is more blank so to say. Rajesh Khanna is more composed than in his other songs sung by Kishore Kumar. The lyrics are somewhat cryptic. And, then Mukesh singing in a rather unusual high pitch. All these aspects put together; I am sure there can be various interpretations as to which genre this song belongs.

Can we have inputs from more knowledgeable readers of more such films in which the two singers sang for the same actor under different circumstances.

Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji of Surat has been kind enough to check the correctness and completeness of the songs in the table and I shall remain indebted to him for the invaluable help rendered.

So, to conclude the rare combination of Mukesh and Kishore Kumar has a total of 10 songs.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

aaj ki raat, ye kaisi raat
ke hum ko neend nahin aati. . .

If the previous song in the series was a lament about lonely nights and the longing that accompanies them, this song today is expressing the opposite emotion. The lovers are together, and the lady is now complaining that her lover does not have an iota of sleep in his eyes, and that she is worried for that.

The gamut of human emotions is spread out wide and far. And whatever be the emotional flavor one may select, one is sure to locate a song from Hindi films that expresses that emotion fairly accurately. Continuing with the saga of sleepless nights, here today we have a flavor of sleeplessness that is expressing a complaint against the lack of sleep on the part of the gentleman. The lady is cajoling and chiding him, trying to induce sleep in his eyes. She is asking him what toy he would like to have, and that she may bring to him that which he desires. But the imploring thread intertwined is that the lack of sleep in his eyes worries her.

Word are crafty. They are a double edge sword that say one thing and mean another. The scenario being played out on screen appears to be one of deception. Apparently Ranjeet is pursuing Navin Nischol, who in turn seems to have taken refuge at Rekha’s home. Now both Rekha and Navin Nischol are inside a room, with Ranjeet sitting outside. And the scenario being played out is as if Rekha is putting a baby to sleep inside the bolted room. The song is telling in words that a mother is trying to put a baby to sleep. That is what a person outside the room would surmise, as one listens to the words of the song emanating from the room. However, the scene, as is being played out inside, there is no baby being put to sleep. Rather, the lovers have been thrown together by themselves in the room. The lady is trying to fend off the advances of the gentleman, and is singing a complaint that there is no sleep in his eyes, and that she would rather that he would take shelter in sleep.

The word and the scenario present an interesting juxtaposition. The film is ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ from 1970. Memory serving right, I remember this film being promoted as the debut film for the lead pair of Navin Nischol and Rekha. As later inputs would clarify, technically this is not the debut film for Rekha, and that her first film ‘Do Shikari’ (1978) was eventually released after a delay of many years. I remember seeing the posters and hoardings for this film as a school going kid. And I also remember that a few songs of this film became very popular and were often played on the radio waves.

The film is produced under the banner of Deluxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Sehgal, a director of certain repute from that era. The list of actors is presented as Navin Nischal, Rekha, Shyama, Jaishri Talpade, Agha, Narendra Nath, Iftikhar, Krishan Dhawan, Ranjeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Sushma, Madhukar, Devi Chand, Pardesi, OP Kohli, Dhruv Kumar, Ajeet Bengali, Mamaji, and Darpan Nille etc.

The films has seven songs, all from the pen of Verma Malik. The music is composed by the duo of Sonik Omi. Two songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here.

Today also is the remembrance day for Manohar Lal Sonik, the senior partner in this duo team of music directors. He had passed away this day (9th July) in the year 1993. This is the reminder nudge from our dear Prakashchandra ji, who has sent in the lyrics for this song.

So this was one of the lesser heard songs in its time, being overshadowed by its more popular siblings like “Sun Sun O Gulabi Kali”, “Kaan Mein Jhumka Chaal Mein Thumka” and “Aankhen Meri Maikhaana, Maikhaana, Maikhaana”. On screen the song is performed by a pre-makeover Rekha, chiding a naughty Navin Nischol, while Ranjeet is seated outside the door of the room.

Listen, view and enjoy.

Hindi songs in Bangla Films: 27
—————————————–

One of the many Bangla films in which Uttam Kumar paired with Supriya Devi was ‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970). The film was directed by Agragami. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Supriya Devi, Nirmal Kumar, Deepa Chatterjee, Asit Baran, Tarun Kumar, Bimal Mitra etc. I have watched the film with English sub-titles on an OTT platform.  The film’s English sub-titles are not as good as they ought to be. They are also not properly synchronized with the scenes. Within these limitations, I could make out the story of the film as under:

Mriganka (Uttam Kumar), an upcoming painter, falls in love with Aditi (Supriya Devi), the singer during their college days. After the completion of college, they decide to get married. Aditi belongs to Christian family with a good financial status in the society whereas Mriganka belongs to an orthodox Hindu middle class family. There is opposition from both the families due to different religious and social status. Both of them get married against the wishes of their respective family. However, Aditi’s father gives some initial financial support to set up the house and also send with them Judith (Deepa Chatterjee), an orphan who has been staying with Aditi’s family since childhood, to support the newly married couple in household work.

With the help of the initial financial support from Aditi’s father, Mriganka gets a large house at a very high rent. He also furnishes the house by buying costly furniture and fixtures. In a short period of their marriage, Mriganka has spent all the money his father-in-law has given to his daughter. He has no income as he is yet to establish himself as a painter of repute. Hence his paintings remain unsold in the exhibitions. Soon, there is a financial crisis for the newly married couple.

Both Mriganka and Aditi meet their common friend Subroto (Nirmal Kumar) to get his guidance as to how to come out of their financial mess. Based on his advice, they move to a smaller house to reduce the rent outgo. Aditi who has been trained in Hindustani classical music decides to take singing as a career and becomes the radio singer. She earns her fees but not enough to run the house. Mriganka is not able to sell his paintings. So, Subroto helps him getting a job in the office. However, being a painter at heart, office work does not interest him. Within short time, he leaves the office job.

In the meanwhile, Aditi has become a famous singer. The gramophone records of her songs are sold like hot cake. She becomes very busy in her singing assignments. She has now become a celebrity. Both are now comfortable on their financial front. However, Mriganka is not able to sell any of his paintings despite getting favourable critical reviews of his paintings. He is not prepared to compromise on the subject of his paintings by which the art lovers can be enticed. Out of frustration, there is constant frictions between Mriganka and Aditi on trivial issues. Mriganka who has been a teetotaler and a non-smoker becomes an alcoholic.  The matter reaches a stage when Aditi misunderstands Mriganka in the company of a female model in her house as a muse for his painting. In the background of intense arguments, Mriganka decides to leave the house. Eventually, Mriganka and Aditi get divorce.

While Aditi’s singing career is on the upper trajectory, Mriganka’s luck is not in his favour. He decides to try his luck out of India by participating in the painting exhibitions in Europe. Despite having differences with his father, Mariganka was fortunate that at the time of the death, his father has left him   his share of savings which has come handy now to finance his trip to Europe. However, Mriganka returns to India without any success in Europe. His health has already started deteriorating forcing him to give up painting.

One day, while coming out of the church, Judith sees Mriganka walking on the road looking very sick. She takes him to her house and nurses him for few days until he recovers from his ill health. Even after that Judith visits Mriganka’s house daily to take care of his food and other daily routine. This information gets passed on to Aditi when Subroto meets her. She gets upset over the ‘scandalous’ relations between Judith and Mriganka but dismisses this information as of no concern to her.

Mriganka gets married to Judith and he is back to painting due to her encouragement. But at the back of her mind, Judith feels that she is indirectly responsible for the separation of Aditi and Mriganka as she had given a false testimony to the divorce court that she had affairs with Mriganka in order to hasten the divorce proceedings under instructions from him. Judith suffers a miscarriage and she dies in the hospital. Aditi attends the burial of Judith where Mriganka and his friend Subroto are present.

The film ends with a scene in which Aditi and Mriganka come out of the burial ground. He is about to go his way when Aditi stops him. Mriganka crosses the road with the support of Aditi holding his hand.

This film is one more example in Bangla films of ending scene being indeterminate leaving it to the audience to interpret in their own way. The first interpretation could be that it was a mere courtesy to help Mriganka to cross the road and drop him in his house in her car. Another interpretation could be that by supporting him to cross the road by holding his hand, they are united as a couple. The third interpretation which looks more probable to me is that Aditi has decided to extend her emotional support to Mriganka after the death of Judith and they remain friends.

At the outset, I thought that the story of the film is akin to Hindi film ‘Abhimaan’ (1973) in which the husband and wife who are professional singers get separated because of ego clashes. But at the end, there is an emotional reunion between the two.

In my view, in ‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970), there are no explicit ego clashes between their respective professions or between man and woman.  Even if it is there, the director has kept that at the low key. The friction points between Mriganka and Aditi arise because the former is not able to spend much time with the latter as she is quite busy in her professional work. Aditi has problem with Mriganka because he spends money on things which are not priorities like alcohol when his own earnings are not enough to get two meals a day. Neither Mriganka has problem with Aditi’s professional pursuit nor Aditi is concerned about Mriganka not able to earn income.

In the height of their frictions, it is Mriganka who decides to go for divorce to give Aditi the space in her professional pursuit. He also knows that she will not divorce him. So, he creates an impression that he has affairs with Judith to get the divorce faster. In sums, I feel that the director has handled the subject with delicate balance, avoiding the label of a feminist to Aditi and a male chauvinist to Mriganka.

‘Bilambita Loy’ (1970) has 5 songs of which one is in Hindi. The song which I am presenting is “Mann Kahaan Laago Mora Chain Ganwaayi Diyo Re’ which is a duet sung by Manna Dey and Aarti Mukherjee. The song is written by Gulzar which is set to music by Nachiketa Ghosh.

The situation of the song is that after becoming popular singer in Bangla songs, a new music director has taken Aditi for the first time to sing a Hindi song to test it in the market. His idea is that if successful, he wants her to accompany him to Mumbai to make her popular in Hindi songs which will also benefit the music director in pursuing his career in Mumbai. However, with so much happening with her in personal front, Aditi finally declines to move out of Kolkata. In real life also, Supriya Devi, after working in Mumbai for 3 films – Begaana’ (1963), ‘Aap Ki Parchhaayian’ (1964) and ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein’ (1964), she bid farewell to Bollywood. It is said that she refused Raj Kapoor’s offer to her of a role in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) which eventually went to Simi.

Blog Day : 4251 Post No. : 15471

Back here on the blog after a fairly long break.
I daresay it would’ve been even longer if it were not a very special occasion today.

From today, we start the centenary celebrations of Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth.
Since he was born on 8th March 1921, today happens to be his 99th birth anniversary.

So yes, it is a very special occasion for Urdu poetry and classic HFM lovers. As a massive Sahir fan, I thought I owed it to him to write a post for the occasion. I’ve written so often about him here, on practically every birth and death anniversary, and have nothing new to say anymore – and yet it feels like a betrayal of sorts to let this day go by, without paying tribute to him.

So when Avinashji, an even bigger Sahir fan than myself, requested me to write a post for Sahir on this occasion, I could not, but agree. 🙂

But I must also admit that for the first time I told Avinashji that I don’t think I’d be in the right mental frame to be able to do this. For me, writing a post here is an investment of emotion – and right now, to be honest, I feel quite empty within. If it were not for Sahir, I don’t think I’d be able to pull myself together for this post.

To Avinashji’s credit, as always, he provided me with a list of songs and lyrics that I could choose from. And left it to me to see whether I could come up with a post. I owe this post to him too.

Ok, enough about myself and my “mental frame” – this post is about Sahir, not about me. 🙂

What can I say about Sahir that I haven’t said before?
Actually nothing.

But since it’s Sahir, whatever I’ve said before can hopefully be repeated, without sounding boring. 🙂
Just like whatever Sahir wrote as social messages, not once but repeatedly in different ways, was never boring, and only meant as a reminder to society, to show people a mirror.

For me, as for many others, Sahir was much more than just a poet or lyricist. Yes, he was a lyricist par excellence. But I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have had this level of regard for him if he’d limited himself to just writing lyrics or poetry on mundane matters, however beautifully worded.

Sahir’s greatness, in my mind, has a lot to do with the topics he chose to express his views on. And the manner of such expression.

Sure, he could write about romance – “abhi na jao chhod kar” will always be one of my all-time favourite romantic songs.

Sure, he could write about heartbreak too – “jaane wo kaise log the jinke pyaar ko pyaar milaa”, another favourite.

Sure, he could write about love in its multitude of shades – is there a more exquisite ode to love than “ye ishq ishq hai ishq ishq”?

Sure, he could write bhajans with consummate ease – “tora mann darpan kehlaaye” and “aan milo aan milo shyam saanwre” are just two examples.

Sure, he could write light-hearted, fun songs too – the first song that comes to mind in this category is an all-time favourite “sar jo tera chakraaye”.

Sure, he could write, and wrote quite often, on a mother’s love for her child – “tu mere pyar ka phool hai”, “tere bachpan ko jawaani ki dua deti hoon” and “tu mere saath rahega munne” come to mind.

And yet, Sahir rises, no, TOWERS, above all others when it comes to writing on social issues.

No one, NO ONE, showed a mirror to society as earnestly as Sahir. It was as if he truly came into his own on these occasions.

Whether he was writing about injustice towards the oppressed, society’s shocking treatment of women, casteism, communalism, labor exploitation, or the futility of war, Sahir’s words were like cries of anguish, straight from the heart. You could feel the raw sincerity in them, even if they were often laced with cynicism, sarcasm or anger. Or, occasionally, even hope.

So many songs come to mind.

“Tu Hindu banega na musalmaan banega” – where Sahir calls out communalism in all its ugliness
“Cheen-o-arab hamara” – where Sahir sarcastically exposes India’s hypocrisy over wealth disparity
“Jinhe naaz hai Hind par wo kahaan hain” – Sahir at his cynical best, showing society a mirror of its ugly reality
“Khuda-e-bartar teri zameen par” – where Sahir busts the myth about the glory of war, pointing out that there are no winners in war, only bloodshed
“Ponchh kar ashq” – where Sahir exhorts the oppressed to rise and demand their rights from the oppressor, pointing out that colour, religion, caste, race can never be above humanity
“Aurat ne janam diya mardon ko” – Sahir’s famous lament about society’s treatment of women
“Wo subah kabhi to aayegi”– where Sahir, in one of his less frequent refrains, chooses hope over despair

and many more.

Every single time asking questions of society, pointing out its flaws, exhorting it to reform.

That each of his songs is STILL relevant more than 50 years after he wrote them, is truly sad, and a reflection of Indian society – but no one can ever fault Sahir for not doing his utmost to put his writing ability to good use. If society is still languishing in darkness, it certainly isn’t Sahir’s fault.

And it is for this particular trait of Sahir’s that he has a very special place in my heart.

Yes, he’d have had his own place in my heart anyway for lyrics like “wo afsaana jise anjaam tak laana na ho mumkin, use ek khoobsoorat mod dekar chhodna achha”.

But his attempt at social awareness, and his speaking truth to power, takes my regard for him to a different level altogether.

If I may say so, and no disrespect meant to any lyricists who have come since, but no one comes close to Sahir’s intensity in this one matter.

Or maybe times have changed too.

Now, coming to the song for today.

Avinashji gave me a few options – of the lot, I picked the title song of “Samaj Ko Badal Daalo” (1970). Lyrics have been provided by Avinashji, of course. 🙂

It’s a lament, not uncharacteristic of Sahir, where he lets loose on society itself, blaming it for its own ills. That it tolerates corruption and crime is the biggest reason society suffers these, in the first place. Reform cannot start unless society decides to step up, and adopt a zero tolerance policy towards these. Hence “samaj ko badal daalo”.

I honestly don’t think it’s a bad assessment of why we are the way we are.

Without coming across as too preachy, let me share a few thoughts quickly.

We Indians love to blame our politicians for everything. We blame them for corruption, for the poor state of our roads, education and healthcare, for dividing society along communal lines – basically everything.

And yes, since they are our leaders, and have power, it’s not unfair to place responsibility and accountability on them.

And yet, where do these politicians come from?

They don’t fall from the skies, they come from amongst US.

So if we’re complaining about corruption and bigotry in our politicians, we first need to acknowledge that we, as a society, are ourselves guilty of these very shortcomings in our character. We carry a lot of baggage historically, and don’t have a particularly high moral compass ourselves. Our politicians then just exploit our weaknesses.

For example, politicians pander to our base instincts, dividing us based on identity, or other group characteristic. And we fall for it. Every single time.

Then again, when it comes to governance, they manage to get away with promises because we don’t make a serious enough effort to hold them accountable anyway. We behave like slaves – and get treated as such. So our leaders end up with power, but no accountability.

This is OUR fault. If we didn’t allow them to exploit us like this, if we raised the bar and held them accountable to us, things would be very different.

So when Sahir writes “samaj ko badal daalo”, it does resonate a lot with me. And hopefully with others too.

End of “preaching”. 🙂

The song itself is sung by Rafisaab, at the start of the film, as credits roll. I remember seeing this film as a young boy – what I remember most about it from that time is that the hero (Parikshat Sahni, who was then still Ajay Sahni) gets stabbed midway in the film and dies. I’d never seen a film till then where the hero dies midway :-), so I couldn’t reconcile easily to this at all.

A few years ago, I watched this film again, just out of curiosity. I wouldn’t call it a bad film as such (I’ve seen worse), but the last 30 minutes or so, are very dark and depressing. After watching this film, it might linger in your mind – and you’re likely to feel sad for a while.

Considering people usually look towards cinema for escapist fare, and don’t want to be reminded of daily miseries of life, this film is definitely not one you should watch if you want a feel-good feeling from the film. Don’t get misled by the fun “tum apni saheli ko” song, picturised on Prem Chopra.

But none of this takes away from Sahir, who is the reason for this post. Rafisaab singing Sahir’s lines are always a joy for me – even if it’s a sad song.

I hope you will also listen to it – and possibly agree that what we need most is for society itself to reform, otherwise we will continue bad practice of the past, and only regress.

In my opinion, the greatest danger to a society is not economic bankruptcy (which, however hard, CAN be corrected through appropriate economic policy), but moral bankruptcy (which eats away at the very fabric of society, and is therefore far more difficult to correct).

Thank you for reading.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

(Ye ek katha jo laakhon logon ke ae
Jeevan ka darpan hai
Desh pita ke charnon mein
Ham sab ki ore se arpan hai)

***

Samaaj ko badal daalo o o
Samaaj ko badal daalo o o o
Samaaj ko badal daalo
Zulm aur loot ke rivaaz ko badal daalo
Samaaj ko badal daalo

Kitne ghar hai jinme aaj raushni nahin
Kitne ghar hai jinme aaj raushni nahin
Kitne ae tan-badan hai jinme zindagi ee nahin
Mulq aur kaum ke mizaaj ko badal daalo o
Mulq aur kaum ke mizaaj ko badal daalo
Samaaj ko badal daalo o
Zulm aur loot ke rivaaz ko badal daalo
Samaaj ko badal daalo o

Sainkdo ki mehnaton par
Ek kyun paley
Sainkdo ki mehnaton par
Ek kyun paley ae
Oonch neech se bharaa
Nizaam kyun chale ae
Aaj hai yahi to
Aise aaj ko badal daalo o
Aaj hai yahi to
Aise aaj ko badal daalo
Samaaj ko badal daalo o
Zulm aur loot ke rivaaz ko badal daalo
Samaaj ko badal daalo
