Blog Day : 3653 Post No. : 14509

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 15
———————————————————————

It has been a while since my last post here – and I have no excuses for this. I will not cite “been busy” as an excuse, because, if I’m honest, I could certainly have found time for a post. If anything, the only reason for not posting is my sheer laziness. And laziness is never, and should never be, an acceptable excuse. So, no excuses. Mea culpa.

One thing though. While I might not be posting frequently, this blog is never far from my heart. It might not be apparent from my recent (non-existent) interactions but this is fact. Whether I post here or not, this blog is very special to me. After all, I have been involved with it from day one. So I request everyone to please excuse my prolonged absence. (Some might consider it not such a bad thing. 🙂 )

Anyway, let me get to the point now. I am not the story here – something else is. Something much bigger than me and my mundane blabbering. Yes, this post is part of a series that marks a very special occasion for this blog. An occasion that speaks to an achievement so momentous, so mind-boggling that it calls for a “lifetime achievement award” for the creator of the blog.

This blog, our beloved blog, completes TEN years today – the first post here appeared on 19th July 2008.

I know I will never be able to do justice to the emotions I am experiencing right now. Words just cannot fully express these feelings. But I’ll try to share some of my thoughts on this occasion. They will be rambling, as usual – but I hope that’s ok.

TEN years. In the history of civilizations, TEN years is nothing. Even in inter-stellar references, depending on context, TEN years is nothing.

But in the world of blogging, TEN years of continuous blogging is HUGE. Mind-blowingly awe-inspiringly HUGE. Or, to use a very common American term, AWESOME. The operative word here is “continuous”. Most blogs out here (and there are countless numbers) are started with great enthusiasm. It doesn’t matter what the blog is about – but, much like exercise, the enthusiasm sees a dramatic drop over time. This could be days, weeks, or, for the more dogged, months. The blog marathoners might just push it into a few years, but there is usually a visible decline in tempo – much like a vehicle that has run its mileage, but is being started everyday just so it doesn’t come to a complete halt. Thus you see a post surface on the blog after months – as if to signal the blog (and the writer) is still alive.

I am not exaggerating. Yours truly also has a potpourri-like blog  – started many years ago with considerable enthusiasm. The live update on the situation is that I can’t even remember when I last posted anything on the blog. Must be a few months at least, if not more. And I am in pretty good company. Thousands of blogs suffer this fate.

That is where this Atul-song-a-day blog, so beloved to us, stands out. Separate from all the other blogs out there. It is one thing to clock ten years. There must be plenty of blogs created before 19th July 2008 and still active. But I wonder how many of those have posts almost EVERY SINGLE DAY day since then. And if they do, I am almost sure they must be commercial blogs, run for profit. By probably an army of people dedicated to the job. In comparison, here it is very different.

We have Atul – who started this blog purely as a labour of love. To this day, even ten years later, it remains that. Yes, he’s helped by Sudhir ji now (and that’s a huge help!) but it’s still one hell of an ask to keep posting every single day. But they do it – Atul and Sudhir ji. The rest of us, Atulites, enjoy the blog, discuss songs, write posts at times (cough, cough!) – but it is basically run by Atul and Sudhir ji.

The most amazing thing about this is that they are both very busy people otherwise – so they have plenty to do, even apart from taking care of this blog. And like I’ve said many times before, every post involves a certain degree of effort. There’s no compromise on quality, so it’s not just a hurried hashed job for the sake of posting something. No compromise on accuracy, whether in the lyrics or in the post itself. If it means needing to listen to a song umpteen times (and Atul has done that), so be it! And apart from the post, there are the other features – the analysis, statistics. All of this demands time too. And besides what we see, they are always working on something in the background.

And oh, I forgot to mention, there’s always the risk of infrastructure failing – whether a power failure, or internet connectivity issue. Over these ten years Atul has been posted in multiple towns – each with its infrastructure challenges. When I consider all this, I can only say that it takes a very special level of love and dedication to HFM to be able to achieve so much, with all constraints and demands on their time.

I would also like to compliment and congratulate not just Atul and Sudhir ji, but everyone who has been part of this wonderful journey, in any capacity. There have been many – some stalwarts too (I shall not take names, we all know who they are 🙂 ) – who have contributed to this blog immensely.

Thanks to this blog, we have all come together, from all over the world, from diverse backgrounds – but with music as our common love and bonding factor. Without this blog, that would not have happened.

Of course, on such an occasion, it is normal to also reflect on the journey. My mind goes back to that first song , posted on 19th July 2008. “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” – Rafi Saab’s divine voice, meaningful lyrics by Kaifi Azmi, composition by Roshan. This song started the journey.

My comment appears on 21st July – so two days later. That is because I got to know about the blog only then. Atul and I were part of this cricket forum – both of us share this interest too, apart from music. Although the forum was primarily meant for cricket discussion, we would discuss a lot of other stuff too – mostly fun stuff. Given our interest, we naturally discussed songs too.

Atul and I (and a few others) would post songs on the forum every now and then. Atul had a thread ‘train songs’, I had a thread ‘songs that inspire me’ and so on.

Around this time Atul started a blog to discuss some of his experiences – I remember him blogging about Binaca Geet Mala, and the famous Jaimala programme of Vividh Bharati. Then one fine day, Atul announced on the cricket forum that he had started a new blog for songs. This announcement was on 21st July 2008 – I promptly visited the blog. Read the post, listened to the song – and left a comment. Shalini, another friend on the forum, also was one of the earliest visitors and commenters on the blog.

At that time, the intention was only one song a day. Which explains the blog name.

But of course, with one song a day, you would not get very far even in ten years. And our thirst wouldn’t get quenched. 🙂

In those early days, I used to give Atul a lot of farmaishes. He was obviously posting songs of his liking – I liked them too, but I had so many other songs that I wanted to see on the blog. So I used to send him requests – lists of 10 songs at a time. Not necessarily very famous songs – I remember even giving a farmaish for “Paape Na Sharma” (film ‘Sagaai’, 1966) – a song I distinctly remember from my childhood.

Around that time, Lalitha also joined in. She was a regular commenter – and would give her farmaishes too. For a while, I felt less guilty – I wasn’t the only one making demands on Atul. Poor Atul! He had started with the intention of posting one song of his choice every day. And here he was, trying to cater to long lists of farmaishes – many probably not even songs of his choice. Yet, he didn’t complain (“Aah Bhi Nikle To Ye Pyaar Ki Rusvaai Hai” ?). He tried gamely to post them all – and possibly realized that at one song a day, it wasn’t going to be feasible.

After a while (I don’t know when – Atul would know the exact dates), he switched to multiple songs a day. That was a big boost for thirsty people like me. 🙂  He kept making improvements to the blog. One feature after another. Statistics. Anniversary page. At that time it was totally a one-man show. He somehow managed to keep posting everyday. The write-up was entirely his at the time.

Then, one day, he asked me if I would do a write-up. I was a bit nervous – but said ok. That was the start for me – this is my 201st post. In these 200 posts, I’ve had the opportunity to pay tribute to several artistes on their birth/death anniversaries or blog landmark occasions – all thanks to Atul.

The blog itself now covers 14500+ songs – I would say it is the richest, most composite, repository of HFM on the internet, especially if you consider that it includes many obscure songs, and is a package of lyrics, video/audio AND a write-up for every single song posted. In any case, we are not in competition with anyone – like I’ve said before, this is a labour of love. We keep building the repository – and the process itself is an enjoyable one. For me personally, this blog has enriched my knowledge of HFM SO much I cannot begin to explain in words. I have discovered SO many gems only through this blog.

And oh, the knowledge of Atulites here! I feel SO humbled. I know nothing, and am happy to learn more from our inhouse encyclopaedia, Arunji. Or Sadanandji, whose knowledge is also immense. And others too. The important thing I realize is that I will not get this information anywhere else on the internet – it is in their heads, often coming from a book or an interview or article ages ago. The internet is not as complete (or even as accurate) a source as many think. We need to keep adding new (accurate) content to it.

And this blog is doing a great job in this respect. Even the comments section are a treasure house of trivia and rare information. For example, when Arunji discusses a song from a film, he doesn’t talk only about the film. He talks about the circumstances in which the film was made, the times, the background of the artistes, director, producer and so on. That gives a very different, and much-enriched, perspective of the film. And this, I feel, is something very special on this blog. It is not merely a song video/audio/lyrics effort. There’s a story behind it that brings the song and film seemingly to life.

And I just love those stories. 🙂

Apart from the blog itself, there is the ecosystem that has got created around it. All the people who came together because of the blog but are now good friends, part of whatsapp group and so on. Some of us have met each other too. Music bonds anyway – and this blog has taken the bonding to a different level. And being part of this journey from day one has been an absolute privilege for me. I have enjoyed it thoroughly and cherish every moment.

Talking of the journey brings me to the song for this post. This is from Jawaab (1970). The lyrics have been provided to me by Avinash ji. When I told him I was planning to do a write-up on this song, he immediately offered to provide me with the lyrics – in English and Devanagari. He is so passionate about this blog, and so helpful – thank you SO much, Avinash ji.

I have picked this song for two main reasons. First, I wanted a fun song to reflect a fun occasion. Secondly, and probably more importantly, some of the lyrics completely resonate with me.

zindagi wo kya
na pyaar jis mein ho
saath agar ho saathi dil ka
mazaa safar mein hai

How absolutely true! What is life without love in it? And indeed, the journey of life is made enjoyable, thanks to the presence of friends on this journey. Otherwise it would be a lonely journey.

The same is totally true of this blog. The journey, now of ten years, has been made thoroughly enjoyable, certainly for me, thanks to the presence of friends on this journey.

And

baant na lein kyon aapas mein
jo dard jigar mein hai

Also true. We share good and bad times, as we go through this journey. So I felt this song suits this occasion very well.

As for the picturisation, I quite like the zany dancing of, then Jumping Jack, Jeetendra. Even by his crazy standards, some of the moves here are of a different level. Leena Chandavarkar too, probably trying not to be outdone, comes up with some moves of her own. All in all, a totally fun song which I am sure most people will enjoy.

Thanks for reading this post – and once again, congratulations to everyone who has been a part of this journey.

mazaa safar mein hai

Yes, indeed. 🙂

ज़िंदगी वो क्या

जहां भी देखें आँख कि मस्ती

सहमी सहमी क्यूँ है धड़कन दिल कि
मैं ना जानूं
पड़ न गयी हो आँख किसी कातिल कि
मैं ना जानूं
जब चल जाता है जादू
फिर दिल पर कैसा काबू
हो हो हो हो ओ ओ ओ
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले हम है
होठों पर भी ले आओ
जो बात नज़र में है

ज़िंदगी वो क्या

मज़ा सफ़र में हैं
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले हम है
अकेले तुम हो

“Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) was produced by K L Baria and Johny Whisky and directed by B R Ishara for Varsha Films, Bombay. This “social”movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Jairaj, Asit Sen, Sailesh Kumar, Johny Whiskey, Tarun Bose, Mohan Choti, Kumkum etc in it.

This obscure movie had six obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song picturisation shows the hero (I guess he is Sailesh Kumar) lip syncing this teasing song to Kumkum. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lip syncer.

With this song, “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hans do to muhabbat ho tum (Gunaah Aur Kaanoon)(1970) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hans do to mohabbat ho tum
o roothho to qayaamat ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
hans do to mohabbat ho tum
o roothho to qayaamat ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

jaane gulistaan tum ho hoye
husn e bahaara tum ho
lab ye khile to guncha guncha muskuraaye
har phool mehke
har tamanna jhoom jaaye
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

pyaar ki tum shabnam ho haaye
gaati huyi rimjhim ho o
khili chaandni ka
bheega bheega noor ho tum
khwaab e sahar se jaagi jaagi
hoor ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum

shaam si udti zulfen ho hoy
jaam si jhukti palken
aankhon mein jaise chhalki chhalki

thhodi si peeke
ho gaya hoon main sharaabi
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda

hans do to mohabbat ho tum
o roothho to qayaamat ho tum
ba-khuda
khoob ho tum
ba-khuda

Blog Day : 3535 Post No. : 14200

Yesterday (22 march 2018), the blog was having a dot day till about 8 PM and then three articles were published just as the day was getting over, duly taking care of the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie for the day. Today (23 march 2018), we have had four songs discussed already, and that covers the “debutant” movie song as well as the YIPPEE movie.

But we are not done for the day. People have not noticed that we are onto another landmark. These days we mention the post number in the beginning of the post. The last article had its post number as 14199. So the next article has to be the net century post for the blog, viz post number 14200.

This century post occasion must be the most uneventful as well as the most underprepared century post. I was not sure about the song I was going to pick for the occasion till very late. I thought that I had chosen the song. But that song got changed in the afternoon. In the evening that song got changed again. This song, the 14200th song for the blog will appear at around 11 PM IST, after being finalised at about 8 PM ! In fact I discovered this song and heard it for the first time at 8 PM !

I had decided that this century post would cover a song penned by Kaifi Azmi. so the songs that I kept chosing and changing were all penned by Kaifi Azmi.

It was yesterday evening that I had decided on Kaifi Azmi as the artist to feature for the century song. So I began to research on the songs of Kaifi Azmi. I found, much to my surprise that the list of all songs penned by Kaifi Azmi is not available online, unlike the case for many other artists. Kaifi Azmi has an official site but I found that site a half hearted attempt and there I could not find what I was looking for.

So I spend my time from yesyterday evening till this evening compiling the list of all Kaifi Azmi songs that he has penned in HFM. I arrived at a figure of 351 songs from 88 movies. I was under the impression that Kaifi Azmi was on 199 in the blog and so I was hoping that this song would combine blog century will Kaifi Azmi’s 200th song in the blog. But I found that my earlier calcutaion was incorrect. Kaifi Azmi is on 189 and not quite 199. Nevertheless, now I have a fairly good idea about Kaifi Azmi’s output in Hindi movies.

I find that the music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi worked could be broadly categorised in two categories- First category was those who were lovers of urdu. Second category were those who did not have command over Hindi/ Urdu but they realised the value of a good lyricist.

In the first category, we have music directors like Madan Mohan, Ghulam Mohammad, Khayyam, Jaidev, A R Qureshy, Pt Lachchiram, O P Nayyar, Roshan etc etc. Kaifi Azmi worked with Madan Mohan in 14 movies, which is the highest number of movies for him with one music director. On the other end of the spectrum, he worked with Roshan and O P Nayyar in just one song each. The first song in the blog was sole Roshan composition that Kaifi Azmi penned. So this blog was starged with a rare song though it was not realised at that time. 🙂

The only O P Nayyar composition that was penned by Kaifi Azmi was the lilting title song of “Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi” (1966).

The other category of music directors with whom Kaifi Azmi was associated in HFM were those who had poor command over Hindi/ Urdu. They were mostly Bangla speakers. But what compositions they created with Kaifi Azmi. This category of music directors include names like S D Burman, Hemant Kumar, Kamal Mitra, Bappi Lahiri, Aparesh Lahiri, Robin, Kanu Roy, Dilip Roy etc.

For this occasion, I have chosen a song that must be regarded as a rare song on many counts. This song is a rare song per se, in the sense that I had not heard this song till now, even though this song was composed in 1970, when I as a precocious music loving kid would listen to all HFM that would get played on Radio, loudspeakers etc.

This song can also be desribed as rare because it is a club song as well as a Helen dance song. One does not associate Kaifi Azmi with a Helen dance song, but this song is very much a Helen dance song.

Though the song has dance by Helen, she does not do any lip syncing. The song is a male solo song. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, regarded uncharitably as poor man’s Rafi by some. The song is lip synced as a party song in Shammi Kapoor style. No, it is lip synced neither by Shammi Kapoor nor by Vishwajeet, whom many people rather uncharitably regarded as poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. the song is lip synced by Chandrashekhar who could well be described as a poor man’s Vishwajeet. That would make him poor man’s poor man’s Shammi Kapoor. 🙂 The song does have such self effacing lines as

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar

The picturisation also shows some well known villains in attendance. K N Singh and Jeewan are present on the occasion. Jeewan seems to have understood every word of this heavy duty lyrics, going by his facial expression. 🙂

I got to listen to the song a few times in the process of noting down of the lyrics. I found the song growingon me. It is that kind of song.

So here is this unsung song as the rather unnoticed 14200th song in the blog. This century took a sedate 26 days. Hopefully we will pick up speed in the coming days and weeks.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support, good wishes and encouragement that keep fuelling this musical bandwagon. Let us hope that this bandwagon keep on rolling, like the mythical perpetual motion machine.


Song-Chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein (Daghabaaz)(1970) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Dilip Roy

Lyrics

chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
dekh ke mujhko munh pher lete hain sab
mera chehra gareebi ka hai ishtihaar
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
apne sar pe chita apni rakkhe huye
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
thokaren khaayin duniya ke aage hazaar
aur kisi ne bhi badhke sambhaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
sar agar phodna hai to sar phod lo
saaya dhoondho na chaandi ki deewaar mein
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
pyaar ka geet honthon tak aaya to thha
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
kho gaya aa ke sone ki jhankaar mein
dard patthar ne seene mein paala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
raat dhalti rahi
jashn hota raha
log hanste rahe
koi rota raha
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
shukriya kis jubaan se ada keejiye
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
dil mein kaanta zamaana chubhota raha
mujhko mahfil se lekin nikaala nahin
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein
jaane kya raaz hai kyun ujaala nahin
chhed di maine dil ki ye baaten kahaan
dil ki baaten koi sun’newaala nahin
chaand bhi hai sitaare bhi hain bazm mein

Here is the sixth and final song from “Pardesi”(1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

What a hidden gem of a song it is ! It is a synchronised dance song picturised on Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. The picturisation shows people gathered around the dancers who sing and dance while we have Manmohan Krishna playing “Been” and a gentleman (whom I am unable to identify) playing guitar.

This song can be described as a snake dance song, a dance form which has become quite popular nowadays thanks to Bangladeshi cricketers. 🙂 The snake dance steps of theb Bangladeshi cricketers were taken from the “Nagina”(1986) song Main teri dushman dushman tu meri main naagan to sapera. This dance step has been mass copied by Sri Lankan cricket watching public as well as famous people (like Sunil Gavaskar, for instance) by now. So the “novelty” value of that snake dance step has been lost. Have no worry. Here is another snake dance song, one that is performed by Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. Being a synchronised dance song, it is a fit snake dance song for a pair of Bangladeshi batsmen batting together at the crease. They can dance like Mumtaz and Padma Khanna whenever they feel that that are on the verge of winning a match. 🙂 And do not forget to give credit to me for this wonderful snake dance song. 🙂

With this song, “Pardesi”(1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song-Mere gore ang base pyaar piya tera (Pardesi)(1970) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

mere gore ang base pyar piya tera
mera sab kuch hai tera tu hai sajan mera
din rain tohe dekh jiyoon baalma

rang mein tere rangi main chunri odh ke

pyari sakhiyo ki gali
chali aayi chhod ke
pat jaise man ka khula dwaar piya tera
mera sab kuch hai tera
tu hai sajan mera
din rain tohe dekh jiyoon baalma

kuchh bhi tere siva yaad nahin chaah mein
kuch bhi tere siva
kuchh bhi tere siva yaad nahin chaah mein
teri matwaali bani

teri matwali bani
padi teri baah mein

aaye angana ko tere
aaye angana ko tere
mandir main jaan ke
devata kaha tujhe

Blog Day : 3530 Post No. : 14178

First of all, let me wish all of you a Happy Ugadi and Happy Gudi Padwa today (18 march 2018). I hope those celebrating the occasion are enjoying themselves.

Today also happens to be the birthday of Shashi Kapoor (18 march 1938-4 december 2017), one of our best-known and most loved actors.

The thought is inescapable – and burdened with more than a tinge of sorrow. The thought that, had I written this post on just his previous birthday, I would have been talking of Shashi Kapoor in the present tense. I’d have been saying “is”, instead of “was”.

But that’s life – and death. And we have to accept it.

Ah, Shashi Kapoor!

Where do I start?

Let me start as usual with “my generation”, the 70s.

For me, and I am sure for many Hindi film lovers born in the early 60s, Shashi Kapoor would have been an integral part of their childhood film-watching experience. He was a very familiar face throughout the 70s – whether in solo roles or in multi-starrer films.

Those were the times when Rajesh Khanna (for the first half of the decade) and Amitabh Bachchan (for the second half) ruled. The 70s also saw a whole lot of new actors emerge. There were also some from the earlier decade who continued to enjoy success – Dharmendra, Manoj Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar, Jeetendra to name a few.

And there was Shashi Kapoor.

One thing most people will agree about Shashi Kapoor – he was very handsome. He had this boyishly cute face, bright eyes, and a smile that got accentuated by crooked teeth and a deep dimple. No wonder you often heard of the term “chocolatey good looks” when people talked of Shashi. 🙂

I think girls found Shashi particularly handsome – he was easily my sisters’ favourite. I was very young then in the late 60s, but I still remember that when the one weekly film in our club happened to be a Shashi film, they’d be thrilled. 🙂 Thus I have fond memories of watching at a very young age, in that club, Shashi films like Haseena Maan Jaayegi, Aamne Saamne, Suhana Safar, Ek Shriman Ek Shrimati, Pyar Ka Mausam, Raja Saab, Rootha Na Karo, Jahaan Pyaar Mile and many more. Whether the film was good or not, was secondary. Shashi was a good enough reason to enjoy it. I remember for days after seeing Pyar Ka Mausam, they’d be singing “ni sultana re”. 🙂 And they loved Aamne Saamne’s “nain milaakar chain churaana kiska hai ye kaam”.

Even when we went on holiday to Bombay for the first time in the early 70s, and we decided to watch a movie, the unanimous choice was Sharmeelee, playing at that time. I think my sisters were even hoping to catch sight of Shashi Kapoor somewhere on the streets of Bombay. 🙂 Not even one in a million chance – but one lives on hope. I remember, for days after watching Sharmeelee, the song “khilte hain gul yahaan” was on their lips. 🙂

Back in our village, when we had to travel 25 km to see a film in a cinema hall, they managed to persuade my dad to take them for Jaanwar Aur Insaan (1972). My dad wasn’t into films at all – it’s possible they told him it was a film about animals (jaanwar). Whereas it’s more likely they were interested in the insaan (Shashi). 🙂

Ah, these childhood memories. 🙂

I was fond of Shashi too – from those late 60s films, while my sisters would sing Shashi’s “tum bin jaoon kahaan” in Antakshari, I’d sing “aaye baithe khaaye piye khiske”. A little more matter-of-fact. 🙂

Today, as I am writing this post, with all these memories coming to the fore, it strikes me that even in an era with Rajesh Khanna as superstar (and Amitabh Bachchan later), Shashi had his own following. Like my sisters. 🙂

Sharmeelee (1971) with superhit songs, Jaanwar Aur Insaan (1972), Aa Gale Lag Ja (1973) with superhit songs, Chor Machaye Shor (1974) with the famous “le jaayenge, le jaayenge, dilwaale dulhaniya le jaayenge”, Chori Mera Kaam and Salaakhen (1975), Fakira (1976) with hit songs.

All solo films for Shashi, all successful. Am not counting the multi-starrers, Roti Kapda Aur Makaan (1974), Deewaar (1975) and Kabhie Kabhie (1976).

As the decade progressed, and multi-starrers became more common, Shashi Kapoor was very much part of them, often to be seen opposite reigning superstar Amitabh Bachchan in films like Trishul (1977) and Suhaag (1979).

Yet, he could carry his own in a solo – as was to be seen in Satyam Shivam Sundaram (1978), a film made by his brother, Raj Kapoor.

So Shashi Kapoor was largely a “safe” actor in the 70s – both for viewers and producers. Of course not every film worked (there are many aspect to a film’s success), but, by and large, audiences liked watching him on screen.

Towards the end of the decade, Shashi got into film production too. He produced some well-known films – Junoon (1979), Kalyug (1981), 36 Chowringhee Lane (1981), Vijeta (1982), Utsav (1984).

But in 1984, disaster struck – his dear wife Jennifer passed away, due to cancer. I think after that Shashi was not the same again.

I’ve talked a lot about his films of the 70s, mainly because that’s the decade I have most memories of. Of course his career started much earlier. As a child artiste (a young Raj Kapoor in Aag and Awara), with his first film as an adult being BR Chopra’s controversial Dharamputra (1961). In that film, he had a negative role.

Although he came from the Kapoor khandaan, it was made clear to Shashi that he had to come up on merit. He had his share of struggles early on – and though he managed the odd hit (like in the multi-starrer Waqt), he really had his first mega solo hit only with Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965).

His co-star in that film was, as usual, Nanda. I say “as usual”, because Nanda was his co-star in many films during the 60s. She was a much bigger star than he was – but was happy to be paired opposite him. Shashi later said he was hugely grateful to Nanda for this. Nanda herself said that Shashi was her favourite co-star.

One thing that struck me in obituaries about Shashi Kapoor last December was that almost everyone spoke a lot about Prithvi Theatre. And rightly so.

While there’s no doubt that Shashi Kapoor gained a lot of popularity from cinema, I think in his heart his love was Prithvi Theatre. After all, he had met his wife Jennifer also through theatre in the 1950s. So one of the most satisfying moments for him and for Jennifer must have been to set up Prithvi Theatre in 1978 and fulfil his father Prithviraj Kapoor’s dream of having a permanent location for his Prithvi Theatres (it had been a travelling troupe during Prithviraj’s time).

Many of the obits talked about how dedicated Shashi Kapoor (and Jennifer, when she was alive) was to Prithvi Theatre. Even when he was in very poor health in his final years, he would want to visit and even watch performances.

So no mention of Shashi Kapoor is complete without a mention of Prithvi Theatre.

I’ve not talked about his acting in English-language films or his partnership with Merchant-Ivory. I’ve myself just watched only one of these films – Bombay Talkie (1970), directed by James Ivory. It also starred Jennifer.

I’ve also not mentioned that Shashi Kapoor was considered to be a true gentleman actor. Many of his co-stars, from Sharmila Tagore to Hema Malini to Zeenat Aman, have said this. He was also supposed to have had a good sense of humour, always keeping the set lively.

All in all, Shashi Kapoor was a much-loved person during his lifetime. And for good reason. And you cannot really ask for more than that.

Now for the song for today.

It is from the film “Suhaana Safar” (1970). A film that I remember seeing as a very young boy, but sadly have only very faint memories of. I seem to vaguely remember a bus in which Shashi and Sharmila travel. That’s all I can remember now. 🙂 A good excuse to watch it again. 🙂

The song is the title song. Aha aha aa ye suhaana safar hai, sung by Rafisaab. The lyrics of this song are by Anand Bakshi, music by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The picturisation is of Shashi Kapoor in a jeep, generally giving out positive vibes, talking about travel, hawa, manzil etc. He finds himself behind a bus, and this infectious positive mood catches on with the travelers in the bus too. They join him in the song. Towards the end of the song, Sharmila Tagore (one of the travelers) looks out of the bus, Shashi waves to her – and it looks like he loses control of his jeep. (Am pretty sure it’s nothing serious :-)).

While watching the video and listening to the lyrics, I could not help thinking that this could be a metaphor for the suhaana safar of Shashi Kapoor’s life itself. And the suhaana safar that we have had following his films for decades. Indeed, it has been a wonderful journey – and we are thankful to him for letting us be part of it.

Interestingly, while I was having these thoughts, I got a message from Avinashji. As usual, when I thought of writing a post for Shashi Kapoor today, he had promptly messaged me, and offered to help me with providing the lyrics. Now, while sending me the lyrics, he echoed the exact same thoughts I had! About the suhana safar of Shashi Kapoor and what we have had with Shashi Kapoor. Serendipity. 🙂

I’ll now leave you with this positive song – and with remembering our suhaana safar with Shashi Kapoor.

There are two versions of this song – one by Rafisaab, the other by Suman Kalyanpur.

Blog Day : 3527 Post No. : 14169

The film that we are bringing to the Yippeee-land today, has been waiting for the final song for the last almost three years. The 1970 film ‘Maa Ka Aanchal’ had made its debut on the blog on 10th May, 2012. Exactly three years later, on 10th May, 2015, the fifth song of this film was posted. As I look at these dates, I am tempted to defer this posting to 10th May, just to complete a sequence. But then I thought better of it. 🙂

Given below is the list of five songs from this film that have preceded today’s post, accounting for all the songs listed for this film.

Jaane Kyaa Haal Ho Kal Sheeshe Ka Maikhaane Ka Maa Ka Aanchal 5949 10-May-12
Maa Hai Muhabbat Ka Naam Maa Ka Aanchal 6129 25-Jun-12
Tere Jhoothhe Waade Ka Aitbaar Kiya Maa Ka Aanchal 9240 4-Jan-14
Bhanwar Mein Meri Naiyya Maa Ka Aanchal 9482 22-Feb-14
Maa Kaa Aanchal Laadle Daaman Hai Bhagwaan Ka Maa Ka Aanchal 11115 10-May-15

The film is produced under the banner of Harintaraj films, Bombay, and is directed by Jagdev Bhambri. The cast of actors, as listed in Geet Kosh, is given as Sanjeev Kumar, Anjana, Abhi Bhattacharya, Leela Mishra, Jagdev, Sheela R, Satpal Nishan, Sushma, Johnny Whisky, V Gopal, Gopal Sehgal, Rajkumar Dutt, Deenanath, Abdul, and Master Ratan.

There is a total of six songs in the film. All the songs are written by Kaifi Azmi. The music is from the mind of Madan Mohan. One song of this film “Maa Hai Mohabbat Ka Naam”, is a solo in Rafi Sb’s voice. The remaining 5 songs are all solos, sung by Asha Bhosle. As it today’s song. The video of this song is not available, although the film seems to be in public domain. So I am not able to comment on the on screen picturization. From the way lyrics are presented, it sounds like a mujra song. But then we already have one mujra song in the film – “Tere Jhoothhe Waade Ka Aitbaar Kiya”. Then possibly this could be a romantic song or a seduction song, I cannot say for sure. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

The song itself is a treat of sheer poetry. It has two long antaraas, which are beautiful verses with very little repetition of lines. The mukhda itself is just this short title as noted in the post. The verses are an expression of being high on life and happiness – “Waqt Meharbaan Hai” – and so let us drink and be merry. 🙂

This sixth song today has been an elusive and fruitless search online. Of course, I have been marked as being in error earlier, so I cannot claim that my search method is perfect. But as far as I could make out online, this song is not available as yet. I am uploading this today; with the hope that someone may not revert to me with the message – hey, this is available here and here. 🙂

So with this song we come to the final posting for this film, and we welcome ‘Maa Ka Aanchal’ (1970) to the group of films that are Yippeee’d on our blog.

Song – Waqt Meharbaan Hai  (Maa Ka Aanchal) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics -Kaifi Azmi, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

dilon ka imtihaan hai
dilon ka imtihaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

saji hai bazm e naaz bhi
chhide huye hain saaz bhi
saji hai bazm e naaz bhi
chhide huye hain saaz bhi
zabaan pe dil ka raaz bhi
nazar hai dil nawaaz bhi
kabhi nazar mila ke pee
kabhi nazar jhuka ke pee
dikha ke pee
jhuka ke pee
magar qareeb aa ke pee
behak gaya to darr nahin
ke ji ko kuchh khabar nahin
qareeb abhi sehar nahin
ke raat abhi jawaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

ye daur hai shabaab ka
shabaab ka sharaab ka
ye daur hai shabaab ka
shabaab ka sharaab ka
sawaal ka jawaab ka
sila na dhoondh khwaab ka
ke khwaab ki ye titliyaan
kabhi yahaan kabhi wahaan
bhatak na jaaye kaarwaan
kadam kahaan nazar kahaan
jahaan bhi dil machal gaye
sitaare sab pighal gaye
naye charaag jal gaye
zameen bhi aasmaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

सजी है बज़्म ए नाज़ भी
छिड़े हुये हैं साज भी
सजी है बज़्म ए नाज़ भी
छिड़े हुये हैं साज भी
ज़बाँ पे दिल का राज़ भी
नज़र है दिल नवाज़ भी
कभी नज़र मिला के पी
कभी नज़र झुका के पी
दिखा के पी
झुका के पी
मगर करीब आ के पी
बहक गया तो डर नहीं
के जी को कुछ खबर नहीं
करीब अभी सहर नहीं
के रात अभी जवान है
वक़्त मेहरबान है
वक़्त मेहरबान है
वक़्त मेहरबान है

ये दौर है शबाब का
शबाब का शराब का
ये दौर है शबाब का
शबाब का शराब का
सवाल का जवाब का
सिला ना ढूंढ ख्वाब का
के ख्वाब की ये तितलियाँ
कभी यहाँ कभी वहाँ
भटक ना जाये कारवां
कदम कहाँ नज़र कहाँ
जहां भी दिल मचल गए
सितारे सब पिघल गए
नए चराग जल गए
ज़मीन भी आसमान है
वक़्त मेहरबान है
वक़्त मेहरबान है
वक़्त मेहरबान है

‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ (1971) is different from the serial ‘Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ which came a long time after the movie. The movie was an all-round entertainer. We would not get anything less in a movie where Om Prakash heads the cast and the hero (Sanjay Khan in this case) plays a second fiddle to Om Prakash and Jagdeep. Plus, when the mirch-masalas Lalita Pawar and Shashikala spice up the whole setup, it is but natural that the lead cast (Sanjay Khan and Leena Chandavarkar) become secondary – their presence being needed for the romantic interludes.

I must confess I was unaware of this movie till a few years back – till 2014 to be exact. I chanced upon it on one of the umpteen satellite channels. The title made me sit through what turned out to be an enjoyable family- entertainer (as they used to be called back then) which didn’t make you start crying halfway through. A family-entertainer essentially was one which one could see with the entire family and the viewer will be preached about how to maintain family relationships and a few ladies in the audience will be seen crying into their hankies. This movie was not like that.

So, coming to today’s song we have Om Prakash playing a Sadhu Baba and Sanjay and Jagdeep are his chelaas (I think it means students) with Sunder playing an assistant. In the movie Sanjay is Om Prakash’s son, Sunder – his servant and Jagdeep is Sanjay’s saala (brother-in-law). The song has Shashikala and Lalitha Pawar as ladies who have come with queries to the “antaryaami baba”. Through the song we get a gist of the movie. The song is in the voice of Manna Dey written by Rajendra Krishan, with music composed by RD Burman.

One song from this movie was discussed in 2016 by our Avinashji. On the occasion of Om Prakash’s passing away anniversary today; we shall see him the way he was largely-loved by the public. It is 20 years since he passed away.

In those days we used to live in Chembur, Bombay (not yet Mumbai then) and both Om Prakash and Ashok Kumar lived not very far from where we were. Those were the days when it was still cable TV and not satellite TV. And what did the cable operator providing service to our apartment do, he just stopped service for the day and put up a notice on black card— to enable the public in the area to attend the funeral of our beloved “jija ji” (as Om Prakash’s character was in “’Chupke Chupke”) we are suspending our service for a day. That was how much he was loved.

We can remember so many of his memorable characters – starting from ‘Guddi’ (1971) (that is where I noticed him first) to all his characters in Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies, to ‘Ghar Ho To Aisa’ (1990) (that is the last time I saw him in a movie). Of course, his career spanned 42 years and starting from movies made in Lahore in 1942 to “Ghar Ki Izzat” in 1994 he was a co star to every actor – big or small- and gave his best no matter the size of the role as in ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ (1970).

Thinking of Jija ji today on his anniversary

Song – Suno Re Saadho Ye Sansaaram Ultam Paltam Ho Gaya (Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi) (1970) Singer – Manna Dey, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – RD Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

baaba-leeka

hey..ey
suno re saadho ye sansaaram
ultam paltam ho gaya
kahaan ki bhakti
pooja paatham
thokam thaakam ho gaya
bam bam leharey bam bam
bam bam leharey bam bam
suno re saadho ye sansaaram
ultam paltam ho gaya
kahaan ki bhakti
pooja paatham
thokam thaakam ho gaya
bam bam leharey bam bam
bam bam leharey bam bam

dekho re dekho
dekho re saadho
kalyug ki naari ka namoona
apni hi santaan ko is ne
kas ke lagaaya kaisa choona
apni bahu ko bete se apne
sau gaj door sulaya
prabhu kripa se
phir bhi is ne
chaand sa pota paaya
bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam
phir se
bam bam leharey bam bam

dhanya hai saadho
ye devi bhi
chidiya jaisi bholi bhali
rang birange pankh hai iske
chonch magar hai kaali kaali
apni boodhi saas ko is ne
ghar se maar bhagaaya
jab ye saas bani to is ko
bahu ne mazaa chakhaya
ho bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam
phir se
bam bam leharey bam bam

hey..ey
suno re saadho ye sansaaram
ultam paltam ho gaya
kahaan ki bhakti
pooja paatham
thokam thaakam ho gaya
ho bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam
bolo
bam bam leharey bam bam

bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam
babam bam babam
bam bam bam

बाबा-लीका

हे॰॰ए
सुनो रे साधो ये संसारम्
उल्टम पल्टम हो गया
कहाँ की भक्ति
पूजा पाठम
ठोकम ठाकम हो गया
बम बम लहरे बम बम
बम बम लहरे बम बम
सुनो रे साधो ये संसारम्
उल्टम पल्टम हो गया
कहाँ की भक्ति
पूजा पाठम
ठोकम ठाकम हो गया
बम बम लहरे बम बम
बम बम लहरे बम बम

देखो रे देखो
देखो रे साधो
कलयुग की नारी का नमूना
अपनी ही संतान को इसने
कस के लगाया कैसा चूना
अपनी बहू को बेटे से अपने
सौ गज दूर सुलाया
प्रभु कृपा से
फिर भी इसने
चाँद सा पोता पाया
बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम
फिर से
बम बम लहरे बम बम

धन्य है साधो
ये देवी भी
चिड़िया जैसी भोली भाली
रंग बिरंगे पंख हैं इसके
चोंच मगर है काली काली
अपनी बूढ़ी सास को इसने
घर से मार भगाया
जब ये सास बनी तो इसको
बहू ने मज़ा चखाया
हो बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम
फिर से
बम बम लहरे बम बम

हे॰॰ए
सुनो रे साधो ये संसारम्
उल्टम पल्टम हो गया
कहाँ की भक्ति
पूजा पाठम
ठोकम ठाकम हो गया
हो बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम
बोलो
बम बम लहरे बम बम

बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
बम बम बम
बबम बम बबम
