Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 49
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under this series where I am presenting yet another song from the Seventies. The last post presented in this series was also presented by me that too was a song from the year 1973.

The song under discussion is also from a movie of 1973.

Ever since Atul ji started this series it has become my routine to regularly check for movies which are eligible to be discussed in the series in the forthcoming month. I try to find movies that triggers long dormant memories of those days, associated either with the movies or their songs.

I may not necessarily have watched all those movies. In some cases it is only the songs from these movies, frequently being played on the radio or loudspeakers may have left lasting memories in my mind.

The movie for today’s song is a case inn point. I have not watched this movie till now, but I remember its song ‘tere naam ka deewaana, tere dar ko dhoondhtaa hai’ which was arguably the most popular of all the songs of this movie, as it was frequently played on the radio then. I did not like this song those days. Nevertheless this was the song and not any other songs that I associate with its movie.

After many years I listened to ‘honi to hoke rahegi anhoni naa hoye’ and liked it very much.

One more song from this movie which was popular and was played on radio and loudspeakers is the song being presented today. It was only after I browsed the list for the pending songs from this movie that I get to know that this song was from this movie ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’.

I was surprised when I find that this song has not been posted on the blog till now.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie or its songs till now. It was during the preparation of this post that I watched the video of this song for the first time.

Despite their popularity, popular none of these songs made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year.

Before going into the song let us have a look on the movies represented on the blog ten years ago this day 16th November 2009;

Movies represented on the blog on 16.11.2009 (in descending order);

Gaaon mein peepal peepal ki chhainyya Suraj Aur Chandaa-1973 03 of 06 songs posted
Sajanwaa bairi ho gaye hamaar Teesri Kasam-1966 All Songs Covered in the blog

‘Sooraj Aur Chandaa-1973’ or ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’ was directed by T. Madhava Rao for ‘Suraj Films, Madras’. (It was a costume drama movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol V). It was produced by A.V. Subramaniam. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Meeta (new discovery), Sujeet Kumar, Jagdeep, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shyama, Jairaj, Sajjan, Krishna Kant, Mukri, Ram Mohan, Herucles, Lalita Kumari, Sujata, Mona, Kamal, Bhimraj, Arun Kumar, Prem Kumar, Ravindra and others. Banda makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B. Vittalacharya, and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Krishna Rao.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.05.1973.

This movie had total six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three out of the six songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is the fourth songsfrom this movie to appear on the blog. The song is picturized on Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar where Bindu is lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Also, there are snakes around in the picturisation of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Editor’s note:-This song was quite a well known and hummable song of 1970s. It was a song which one heard without necessaily being aware of its details.

From the lyrics, one would guess that a lady is singing about her beloved who has come from far off.

When one watches the picturisation, all such assumptions get thrown out of the window. What one watches in the picturisation is something mind blowing, inadvertently so.

The song is a “naagin” song, in which a “naagin” is singing this love song to her beloved. “Naagin” is played by Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar is her beloved.

“Naagin”(1954) provided the template of all “Naagin” movies, but this movie “Suraj Aur Chanda” (1973) takes that template to a different plane altogether.

In all other “Naagin” movies, a snake charmer (Sapera) plays the been and the female snake (invariably ichhaadhaari naagin) would turn into a human female and would then perform a dance.In this song, it is different. Here it is the snakes who play the “been” (yes seriously, just watch the picturisation). The snakes do not just play the been, they play the whole orchestra including instruments like Dholak, Tabla, Sitar etc as well. 🙂 And the lead snake Bindu performs the dance.

Snakes playing the music ! It is something unprecedented in the annals of Hindi movies ! I am not aware of any such instance in any other movie.

What an idea ! In my younger days, I would laugh at such a picturisation, but now, I can only be amused at the weirdly imaginative brain of the person behind the picturisation of this song.

This song deserves special recognition, especially for its picturisation.

We in this blog hereby make this song the century song of the blog.

THIS song is the 15300th song post in the blog. This song, marking the 153th century post of the blog is a “special” song in its own way. Picturisation of this song can keep people amused for hours ! 🙂

It appears that Laxmikant Pyarelal had specialised in being music directors of “Naagin” movies of that era. He would compose music for such well known “Naagin” movies like “Nageena”(1986)and “Nigaahen”(1989)” as well. These movies had Sridevi as the ichchaadhaari naagin. Remember ‘balma tum balma ho mere khaali naam ke’ 🙂 ?

So, with this amusingly picturised song, the blog completes another century. An agonisingly slow century that took 72 days. Very much in line with the slowing economy. 🙂

But on a different note, as many as 35 movies made their debut and three movies got YIPPEED during this period.

Thanks are due to all the supporters, well wishers, contributors, regulars and visitors whose continues support ensures that this musical bandwagon keeps chugging along on and on.

hullo Atuldom

B. R. Chopra’s romantic comedy “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, based on the “seven-year itch” of Hollywood starring Marilyn Monroe made its blog debut on 25th February 2009 with the most famous song of the movie thhande thhande paani se nahaana chaahiye. After three years na aaj thha na kal thha was posted on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s Birthdate. After almost a full year Sudhirji gave us this article on a song which can be called as a “movie inside a movie” song.

All the posts with these songs give us a fair idea of what a fun movie “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” was. Hence, I am not writing any gist of the movie. The idea to revisit this movie came as there are promos of a modern version of this movie being shown on Television these days. I found that there are five songs in the movie and three have been posted on the blog. On going through YouTube, I could find only four songs from the movie. (resolution: shall sit through the movie one of these days to see if it has the missing song). I remember that “o duniya ke rakhwale” was used in the movie, actually only one line of the mukhda, when Sanjeev Kumar wants to reset his alarm clock. That was in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor.

I am trying desperately to refrain from writing what a fine actor Harihar Jethalal Jariwala -popular as Sanjeev Kumar- was, or about his comic timing or about his smart looks and smile. I am also not going to list out the wonderful movies that he has acted in or how much I love seeing him in emotional scenes. We have a brilliant post by Sudhirji mujhko to qaatil ki itni pehchaan hai which will give us a picture of the kind of actor Haribhai (as his friends in the industry addressed him).

Today on the occasion of the 34th remembrance day of Haribhai we can have the last available song from “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor, written by Anand Bakshi and Ravindra Jain was the composer. This lively song is at the wedding of friends of the lead couple, who later go ahead and get married (in the movie 🙂 ). The song kind of follows the qawwali format. This was one of the movies where Sanjeev Kumar acted his age and was not an aged person meaning senior citizen.


Song-Ladki cycle waali (Pati Patni Aur Woh)(1978) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

ladki cyclewaali
o o ladki cyclewaali
de gayi raste mein
hoye ae de gayi raste mein
ek pyaar bhari gaali
hoye ladki cyclewaali ee ee

gaali pe chhod diya aa aa
gaali pe chhod diya
aise deewaane ka
tum jaise deewaane ka
sar kyun nahin tod diya
ho o o gaali pe chhod diya aa aa aa

ek chaand sa mukhda hai
hoye ek chaand sa mukhda hai
jiske dupatte ka
ye ae jiske dupatte ka
ek reshmi tukda hai
tukda hai ji
ek chaand sa mukhda hai ae ae
badnaam toh karte ho
o o badnam toh karte ho
naam nahin lete
kyun naam nahi lete
kya maar se darte ho
hoye badnaam toh karte ho o o

kothe te kaanv bole
o bole kothe te kaanv bole
us din ko dekhu
main us din ko dekhoon
jis din tu haan bole
hoye kothe te kaaan bole
mumkin ye mail nahin ee ee
mumkin ye mail nahin
BA pass hoon main
o o BA pass hoon main
koi daswin fail nahi
ja ja mumkin ye mail nahi ee ee

shaabba shabba kudiye shawa
o mundiye shaabba shabba

kya naam tumhaara hai
ho o kya naam tumhara hai
umr toh khaasi hai
ho oo umr toh khaasi hai
ab tak tu kunwaara hai
hoo kya naam tumhara hai ae ae

tu jaldi
haye ni je
tu jaldi jawaan hoti
haye je tu jaldi jawaan hoti
toh shaayad tu hi
hoye toh shaayad tuhi
mere bachchon ki maan hoti
hoye tu jo jaldi jawaan hoti ee ee

Blog Day :

4127 Post No. : 15284 Movie Count :

4207

Today 5th November is the eighth remembrance anniversary of Bhupen Hazarika (8 September 1926 – 5 November 2011). I am not adding any adjectives before his name because they will not do justice to describe the ‘personality’ he was, the monumental work he has done, the legacy he has left behind, and finally the ‘human for humanity’ he was.

I have always wanted to write an article on him since I came in to the contact with the blog. And that was only about how I get introduced to the ‘World of Bhupen Hazarika’ through his album ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’ (2/1993) and his songs like from the movies that I know ‘Rudaali’ (1993) and others, and the famous non-film song “O Ganga Behti Ho Kyon. . .”.

I still remember the day 14th May 1993 (I was staying at Kota-Rajasthan then) when I bought ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’ on HMV Cassette and me and one of my colleagues from Bengal listened to it. First time I just listened and was curious to know from my friend about the information on Bhupen Hazarika that he was aware of. Thereafter that evening I keep listening to the cassette changing sides till I went to sleep. That was the magic of the voice of Bhupen Hazarika and also the lyrics of the songs describing the various ‘common individuals in the society – the poor, the downtrodden, the suppressed ones’ and specially depicting the culture of Assam.

Around the same time, I think (June-July of 1993) the songs of ‘Rudaali’ were released and had became popular so the cassette of ‘Rudaali’ too became a part of my collection. Before that the Dadasaheb Phalke award for 1992 was announced; it was conferred on Shri. Bhupen Hazarika for his outstanding contribution to Indian cinema and music. After that I think his album with the song “O Ganga Behti Ho Kyon. . .”, couple of songs from ‘Darmiyaan’ (1997) and other non-film songs was released which I bought during my stay at Bareilly.

I was also always remembering the title song from the TV serial ‘Lohit Kinaare’, I think it had the voice of Bhupen Da (if I am not wrong) , but in spite of my continuous search for it I have not been able to find it till date. In between over the years I was only aware of his Assamese and Bengali version of his song “Aawaara Hoon. . .”, which is “Moi Eti Jajabor” in Assamese and “Ami Ek Jajabor” in Bengali. And of course of the Assamese and Bengali versions of the song “O Ganga Behti Ho Kyon. . .” i.e. “Bistirno Parore Ahankh Janore” and “Bistirno Duparer Ashankha Manusher’ respectively.

All these years all of his collection that I was having was always motivating me whenever I listened to the songs and I always cherished this valuable collection with me. After that almost a year back during my regular browsing I got to read about his personal life, his journey from his early years that made Dangor Moina, a child from Sadia, into a towering personality – Bhupen Hazarika. And I realized that one has to read more and more, or if possible, one has to literally live the life of Bhupen Hazarika to understand Bhupen Hazarika in its true ‘human’ spirit. And that surely requires a very detailed post separately.

On his birth anniversary this year (8th September, 2019) when Atul ji presented a post with his song “Ek Kali Do Pattiyaan” and mentioned about the original Assamese version of that song, I immediately checked for it and listen. And I was very excited and happy to enjoy it in Assamese language.

Just a couple of weeks later, there was a discussion on the song on ‘Brahmaputra’ in the ‘Atulites-whatsapp’ group where Atul ji mentioned about the folk singer Kalpana Patowary, so just one day I searched for her songs and came across a link of her performance in the TV musical program ‘Junoon’ where after her performance one of the judges Ila Arun asks her to sing the song of Bhupen Hazarika i.e. “Manuhe Manuhar Babe. . .”. So I looked for this song. When I listened to it first time I was lost in that song and from that day there is not a single day when I have not listened to this and other songs of Bhupen Hazarika in Assamese and Bengali whether I understand it or not.

But, as Bhupen Da himself mentioned in one of his interviews , what MF Hussain had said about him that “. . . when he sings – he paints.”. Here, I would like to add that not only we get to see the picture in front of us, but when he sings, we get involved in those feelings and emotions of those characters that Bhupen Da is singing about, and we unknowingly step into the soul of those characters.

Well, Atul ji’s post and the discussion on the group prompted me to look for the original Assamese and Bengali versions for his songs from the album ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’. I keep finding them and also found some of them which are given in the table below for those who are interested to listen them. Rather I would request all to please listen to them to understand the ‘nuances’ (as Gulzar saab has said in his commentary in the album ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’) of the characters.

Song Title (Hindi) Assamese song Bangla Song
Dola Ho Dola Dola He Dola Dola He Dola
Yeh Kiski Sadaa Hai Pratidhwani Suno Pratidhwani Shuni
Us Din Ki Baat Hai Porokhi Puwaate Tulunga
Kitne Hi Saagar Saagar Sangamat Saagar Sangame
Haan Aawaaraa Hoon Moi Eti Jajabor Aami Ek Jajabor
Main Aur Mera Saaya Moi aru mor saa
Ek Kali Do Pattiyaan Ekti kuri duti paata
Aalsi Saawan Badri Udaaye Ek khana megh bheshe elo aakashe

I would request our knowledgeable readers to correct me wherever I had made a mistake and also please provide either the Bangla or Assamese version for the Hindi songs that I have been unable to find in the above list. Also, I would apologize if I have made any mistake in the text while mentioning the songs title in either Assamese or Bengali elsewhere in this post.

Now, coming back to “Manuhe Manuhar Babe”, I found one video link wherein Bhupen Da himself is performing on this song and the details mentioned that this song was composed by him in 1964. And there, just this thought crossed my mind to check if there is a Hindi version of this song since it was the oldest song of Bhupen Da so I thought this should have been naturally translated in Hindi long back and this song both in Assamese and Bengali “Manush Manusher Jonno” (that Atul ji mentioned in his post ), are very popular one. But I could not gather the exact translated words for this song in Hindi if at all the song was made. But finally, I got it when I was listening to the various links available for the song “Insaanon Ne Paise Ke Liye” for Sahir Saab’s Remembrance Day.

So, when I was browsing for the song “Insaanon Ne Paise Ke Liye”, I noticed a link in the suggestions having Bhupen Da’s song “Insaan Insaan Ke Liye” and as I listened to it I had got the song I was looking for. And not just that it was already in the movie which was a Hindi version of ‘Chameli Memsaab’, I also got to listen another one “O Bideshi Bandhu”. What a song that is too. . . as we keep listening they keep growing more and more. . . and more. . .

And nowadays, there is not a single day when I do not listen to Bhupen Da’s song in Assamese or Bengali (even though I do not understand the words fully. But I must say they are very sweet, melodious and healing too). For example, I have listened innumerable times to “Akhom Dekhor Bagisare Sowali” in the voice of Usha Mangeshkar. And then its Bangla version “Asom Desher Meye Aami”. However, it seems that this song was not translated and included in the Hindi version of this movie.

Then there are few songs like “Shahid Pronaamo Tomak” which I like very much. And one song that Bhupen Da has mentioned in the interview (that I referred to above)  “Agnijugor. . .  Nuton Akhom Gadhi, Nutan Bharat Gadhi” which I need to listen, but so far have not found the link for it.

Now I also wish to learn Assamese and Bangla. And as many peoples say very rightly that we should always try and learn the Indian languages other than our mother tongue too. And that is the magic of our rich cultural heritage and of our ‘Unity in Diversity’. Even Bhupen Da an ambassador of ‘humanity’ also plays his role in the process of ‘national integration’ when he talks about that in the above interview.

And that bring us to the song of today, which has been taken from the Hindi moive ‘Chameli Memsaab’ (1979). Bhupen Da won the national award for the ‘Best Music Director’ for the Assamese movie ‘Chameli Memsaab’ at the 23rd National Awards – 1975.

‘Chameli Memsaab’ (Hindi) was directed by Ajit Lahiri for Elem Films, Calcutta. It has Abha Dhuliya, Tom Alter, Freddy Stroud, John McKenzie, Mrs. Freddy Stroud, Carol Alter, Pallavi Mehta, Master Raju, Sushant Sanyal, Mithoon Chakravarty and others. HFGK does not mention about the date of passing of this movie by the Censor Board.

This movie has four songs including one multiple version song. Lyrics for the songs are written by Gajanan Sharma (three songs) and Deep Narayan Mitholiya (one song). Music is composed by Bhupen Hazarika. Bhupen Hazarika, Kamal Ganguly, Arundhati Holme Choudhary and Ila Basu gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Bhupen Hazarika and Kamal Ganguly and the lyrics are by Deep Narayan Mitholiya (I think singer Kamal Ganguly and lyricist Deep Narayan Mitholiya will be making a debut on this blog).

Let us now enjoy today’s song and welcome ‘Chameli Memsaab’ (1979) on the blog. Let us also remember the great human being Shri Bhupen Hazarika. And remember that we still have a long way to go to explore the writer, composer and singer Bhupen Hazarika.

Thanking Bhupen Da for the vast musical treasure trove of the ‘soul and fragrance of India’

This song, containing the phrase “Kora kaaghaz”, which was there in a song of “Aradhana”(1969) as well, is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore.

I came to know about actress Chhaaya Devi for the first time some time in 2011 when I found her name mentioned in Kidar Sharma’s autobiography, ‘The One And Lonely Kidar Sharma’ (2002) in the context of the shooting of the film ‘Vidyapati’ (1937). At that time, I thought her to be one of many female actors connected with New Theatres who had short acting career. For me, the only female actor of that time who mattered in Kolkata film industry was actor-singer Kanan Devi. What a wrong impression I had about Chhaya Devi when I came to know later that she had a long filmy career of over 5 decades – both in Bangla and Hindi films.

Being born in Bhagalpur and a part of her schooling done in Delhi, Chhaya Devi (1914-27/04/2001) was proficient in Hindi besides her mother tongue, Bengali. Sometime in early 1930s, her family shifted to Kolkata when she was put under the tutelage of K C Dey, the singer and music director. She was trained in Hindustani classical music and sang Khayal and Thumri on All India Radio. She was also trained in Kathak dance. It was on the recommendation of K C Dey that Chhaya Devi got her first bilingual film in Bengali and Hindi under the banner of New Theatres (NT), ‘Sonar Sansaar’/’Sunehra Sansaar’ (1936) which was directed by Devaki Bose.

Chhaya Devi’s next bilingual film for NT in Bengali and Hindi was ‘Vidyapati’ (1937) in which she did the role of Queen Laxmi, which brought her fame. Another NT film, ‘Abhinetri’/’Haar Jeet’ (1940) in which she acted did not find favour with the audience. Outside NT, she did ‘Chowranghee’ (1942) for Fazli Brothers.

After having worked in Kolkata in about 15 films, Chhaya Devi worked in Mumbai with her first film ‘Mera Gaon’ (1942) directed by Sarvottam Badami in which Jairaj was the hero. Probably, she came to Mumbai along with her mentor K C Dey who was the music director for the film. From her filmography, it appears that she had 2-year hiatus from the film industry (1943-45).

From the late 1950s onward, Chhaya Devi had already shifted to doing character roles in films. It is interesting to note that it is during this phase of her career that she became hyper active in doing Bengali films. For example, in the 1960s, she did around 40 films and in the 1970s, the figure was about 30. Her last film was ‘Tomar Rakte Amaar Sohag’ (1993). In all, she worked in about 120 films.

Some of the Hindi films in which Chhaya Devi worked were ‘Sunehra Sansaar’ (1936), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937), ‘Haar Jeet’ (1940), ‘Mera Gaon’ (1942),’Chowranghee’ (1942), ‘Shri Ramanujam’ (1943), ‘Uttara Abhimanyu’ (1946), ‘Ratnadeep’ (1951), ‘Mamta’ (1966), ‘Tu Hi Meri Zindagi’ (1965), ‘Zindagi Zindagi’ (1972), ‘Alaap’ (1977), ‘Rang Birangi’ (1983). These films were mostly bilingual or the remakes of Bengali films.

Recently, I have watched about half a dozen Bengali films directed by Tapan Sinha in which Chhaya Devi had acted in them. I have also watched a few of her other films. What I have realised with my limited exposure to some of her Bengali and Hindi films that Chhaya Devi was a versatile actress. If she was widow, Anandima in ‘Apnajan’ (1968) who is virtually a peacekeeper between two warring groups of unemployed youth, she is equally good in portraying the villainous looking but soft at heart madam (Baijee) in ‘Uttar Falguni’ (1963)/’Mamta’ (1966). Also, her portrayal of a dominating mother was effective in ‘Saat Paake Bandha’ (1963) which was remade in Hindi as ‘Khora Kaagaz’ (1974). In Hindi films, we have Lalita Pawar, Achala Sachdev, Meena Kumari doing their respective specialized roles very convincingly. In my view, Chhaya Devi was ‘three-in-one’ for Bengali films.

Chhaya Devi was not only a talented actress, she was also a good singer. She had the potential to becoming one of the leading singer-actors in Bengali film industry. Alas! It was not to be. While apart from talent, the luck factor plays an import role in making a film artist successful, I feel that in the case of Chhaya Devi, there was another factor which may have put a sort of speed breaker in the early part of her filmy career. And that factor was the successful emergence of actor-singer Kanan Devi, the first female super star of the Indian film industry.

When Chhaya Devi joined the Bengali film industry, Kanan Devi was already on a threshold of becoming a successful actor-singer. Kanan Devi’s stint with NT during 1937-41 and thereafter with M P Productions of P C Barua in 1942-48 did not give Chhaya Devi the much scope to show her histrionic. Incidentally, Chhaya Devi never got opportunity to worked with K L Saigal and also with P C Barua, an eminent director.

One of the Tapan Sinha’s films in which Chhaya Devi has portrayed the role of madam (Baijee) of a brothel was ‘Harmonium’ (1976). In this film, she sings two songs on herself. The film is available for viewing in 5 parts on a video sharing platform. The story in brief as I understood from the film is as under:

In this film, harmonium has been used as props. The harmonium which was first purchased by an aristocrat widower for her daughter for learning music has to be auctioned as the father dies and his estate manager forges his property paper to his name making the daughter orphaned. All through the harmonium’s journey through various section of the society, it is branded as ill luck to the family owning it.

The harmonium now goes to a middle-class home and then to a brothel. The harmonium is used for singing and dancing activities of the brothel. However, a murder takes place in the brothel forcing Baijee to leave the place with the harmonium. Finally, harmonium is bought by a Government officer for his daughter to learn music where the aristocrat’s orphaned daughter is the governess. After seeing the harmonium which was the same as the one bought by her aristocrat father, the governess is painfully reminded of her childhood days and is worried about the ill luck it may bring to the family. The film ends with a song which the governess is teaching to the daughter of Government officer.

As I have mentioned earlier, in this film, Chhaya Devi sings two songs one of which is in Hindi. I am presenting the song ‘armaan kuchh to dil mein tadapte hi rah gaya’. It is a short thumri of less than 2 minutes, written in a ghazal format. The name of the lyricist is not known though in one of the audio clips, the song is attributed to Gulzar saab. But I have not been able to get it confirmed from any other reliable sources. The song has been set to music by Tapan Sinha. I thought that at least the audio clip of SAREGAMA (HMV) may have full song. But it is also of the duration of less than 2 minutes.

This song is one more example of Chhaya Devi’s versatility in acting and singing. Note how nicely she uses the ‘harkat’ and ‘taan’ when she repeats the lines. Also note her gestures, ‘mudras’ and expressions. She may have learnt all these from her training in classical singing and kathak dance training.

“Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was directed by Lekh Tandon for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prem Kishan, Rameshwari (new find), Shyamali, Madan Puri, Ifthikhar, Shivraj, Sundar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Nandlal Sharma, Pardesi, Ratan Gauraang, Chandu Allahabadi, Jagdeep, Leela Mishra, Savita Bajaj, Piloo Wadia, Rashmi, Veena Kapoor, Shashikala, Suresh Rokde, Deepak Puri, Tajendra Gupta etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

I have written many things about this movie while discussing the previous songs. This was a movie whose name initially put me off. But when I found this movie going on and on and refusing to get replaces from the movie hall where it was being shown, then I decided to watch it. And I fel in love with this movie. So much so that I watched the movie again and again- for a total of five times.

Rameshwari the new find was the person behind the success of this movie. This movie no longer remained just a movie. Moviewatchers identified with Rameshwari and fell in love with her. That is the kind of magic her maiden appearance created at the box office.

It was the first time that I watched a Rajshree Productions movie. With my expectations raised sky high, I went to watch the next Rajshree Productions movie called “Paheli”(1977) and it turned out to be a big let down as far as I was concerned.

And when I watched the next Rameshwari movie, called “Iqraar” (1979), this movie as well as Rameshwari turned out to be huge disappointment.

Songs of “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) were a big reason for the success of the movie. All songs were nice to listen to.

Here is the sixth song from “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) to appear in the blog. It is sung by Hemlata whose voice sounded sweet, divine and inspired when singing uner the baton of Ravindra Jain. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist and composer.

THe movie does not seem to be available online. The song was picturised on Rameshwari.


Song-Jahaan prem ka paawan diyara jare (Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
ho o ho ho
ho o o o ho
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare
jahaan bolen bachan sab neeh bhare
usi angna mein
usi dvaare pe
beete hamra bhi jeevan raam kare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

kaun nadi ki ham hain lahar
kaho aake mila re kinaara
jog likhe bin sambhav naahin
aisa milan hamaara
in charnon se ab ghar na pare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

jis ka naahin apna koi
jo keh de use apna re
us ki karuna us ki daya ka
utre na karaj utaare
jiya chaahe wahin jiyen wahin pe maren
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae
jahaan bolen bachan sab neeh bhare
usi angna mein

beete hamra bhi
jeevan raam kare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

Amitabh Bachhchan, the star of the Millennium, was born in the than Allahabad (which is the English name of city named Ilahbad in Urdu) on 11.10.1942. His given name is Inquilab Srivastava, as per Wikipedia. This is a surprise for me and surely for many people, as a never heard fact. Also has the distinction of acting as the hero in the film ‘Inquilab’ not named after him :-). His father did name him after the slogan of freedom movement “Inquilab Zindabad”. I have never heard of anyone named ‘inquilab’, but have a friend named ‘Kranti’ which is the same thing with change in language only.

So, on 11.10.2019, he is celebrating 77th birthday as the most celebrated star actor and film personality. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shree in 1984, the Padma Bhushan in 2001 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2015 The Government of France honoured him with its highest civilian honour, “Knight of the Legion of Honour”, in 2007 for his exceptional career in the world of cinema and beyond. As per Wikipedia page again, he has won 15 filmfare awards, the most nominated actor with 41 nominations so far and still counting.

His achievements include 4 national awards and Dada Saheb Phalke award for “Lifetime Achievement”.

Luckily, I had the lyrics of this song from the film “Shaan” (1980) ready to present as the birthday celebration post. I said in my reply to Peevecie’s Mom’s comments on this post that BEST buses is a topic of another post. I had this song in mind, most of which is picturized on a BEST double decker bus. “BEST” was formerly Bombay Electricity Supply and Transport, now it is renamed as ‘Brihan Mumbai Electricity Supply and Transport”. My father has been saying this to us right from the beginning that though BEST’s face are the buses which have been the more reliable lifeline of Bombay since almost a century now, its main business and source of income is the electricity supply to the city areas.

If I have to write about the BEST than the story has to start with my father. It is in family folklore that my father had after completing engineering had the option of coming to Mumbai (than Bombay) or to go to Lucknow to join the Railways. This was in the early 60’s, and Bombay was a known place of people in the family, who used to visit it for business purposes also. Also my mother’s ‘Maternal uncle’ had studied in Grant Medical College in the 40’s and everyone was familiar with the city. There was a job in hand in Lucknow, which is an unknown place, nobody in the family had ever been and far away from Belgaum. The family was in favour of Bombay as my father’s sister was already staying here at Kalyan. The decision was left to my father’s youngest sister, who voted in favour of Bambai. So he came to Bombay and joined BEST as a “foreman” trainee. There is a lot more I want to write about my father’s journey (most of it is related to BEST), but will save it for another post. Sometimes I do wonder, if he had gone to Lucknow instead of coming to Mumbai, how different the things would have turned out. I envy the people who have spent their formative years in Lucknow(met a few in my working life), their diction of Urdu language. Some of them, though convent educated did speak a fluent form of spoken khari boli which is closer in diction and grammar to the Urdu that our teachers taught us, compared to my own, the so called Urdu medium product, with our typical bambaiyya dialect. More of the royal ‘aap’ and ‘hum’ in the conversations of people of my generations who spent years in Lucknow, or thereabouts, even as far as some northern cities of Madhya Pradesh.

Will go back to Amitabh Bachchan for now. The first movie I am aware of watching in the theatre is “Do aur do Paanch”, with a similar star cast of Amitabh, Shashi Kapoor and Parween Babi, similar to ‘Shaan’ I mean. Incidently both these films were released in the same year. But we all saw “Do aur do paanch” at Belgaum during summer vacations, whereas “Shaan” was seen in Mumbai. Thereafter, Amitabh Bachchan movies were seen regularly, with the whole family. The movies of before 1980 are all seen on TV, but the movies after 1980, including “Silsila”, “Kaalia”, “Namak Halaal”, ‘Naseeb”,”KhudgarzKhuddaar”, “bemisaal”, ‘Laawaris” etc. I remember watching in theatre.

My personal favorite Amitabh films are not the comic or multistarrers, but his solo films like ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Bemisaal”, ‘Kaalia”, “Abhimaan” ‘Anand’ etc. Among the films of the new millennia, I have seen a few, but missed most of them. He is without doubt the longest running superstar of the hindi film industry.

So here in this song there are four singers, Kishore Kumar for Amitabh Bachchan, Mohammed Rafi for Shashi Kapoor, Asha Bhosle for Parveen Babi and Usha Mangeshkar for Bindiya Goswami. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist and is composed by R. D. Burman.

The film is ‘Shaan’(1980), also mentioned in para 4 above.

Kashtiyaan sab ki kinaare pe pahunch jaati hain,

Those lines played in the background with the ‘logo’ of Sultan Productions the home production of Producer and director Sultan Ahmed.

That also reminds us of the other production houses’ logos and some of them which played some famous lines and that was also one of the thrilling experiences of watching movies in the seventies.

‘Heera’ or ‘Heeraa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed and it was his home production.

It had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Helen, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Mukri, Randhir, Tabassum, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begam, B.B. Bhalla, Polsan, Renuka, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Jankidas, Master Raju, Pahalwan, Habib, Mac Mohan, Maqbool, Bam Lahiri, Abhimanyu Sharma, Master Rajoo and many others.
Faryal, Asha Potdar, Shyam Kumar, Satyendra Kappu make a friendly appearance in this movie.
The movie also introduced a sheep ‘Kaptaan’.

Story of this movie was written by K.B. Pathak. Dialogues were written by Wajahat Mirza. Wajahat Mirza also shared the screenplay writing K.B. Pathak and Sultan Ahmed. Editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Khanna and Mukri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1973.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) listed six songs on the movie page for this movie, it was however corrected in the addenda that the first song in the list, is actually only few lines of the first song in the movie ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ , and thus reducing the total number of songs of this movie to five.

This song ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ was presented on the blog by our Respected Arun ji and he also had mentioned in brief about this movie and its story. (Wherein only one correction is required that the villain Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) is not arrested b the police in the end of this movie, but he gets killed during the encounter with Heera (Sunil Dutt) and the Police).

I have vague memories of watching this movie either with my Father or my Uncle. And I must be around five or six years old then. After that I have never watched this movie again.

But I always have the nostalgia with me for the song ‘main tujhse milne aayi mandir jaane ke bahaane’ from this movie. I remember this song was very popular then and was frequently played on loud speakers. (however, none of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year). Other than this song the nostalgia related with this movie that I always carried was ‘the daaku, the horses and the guns and the ‘khandahars’ 🙂

Other than the two songs mentioned above the other song which one can remember after listening to it is ‘Jai Ambe Jagdambe Maa Jai Ambe Jagdambe’ which was also heard, may be during ‘Durga Pooja’ festivals only.

And these three songs mentioned above are the three songs from this movie which have been posted in the blog so far.

One can find the today’s song also heard on radio in those days, but I think it was not much popular and forgotten easily thereafter. However this can remind us of the many this type of songs in other movies 😊

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, while two lyricists wrote the songs for this movie, Indeewar three songs and Anjaan two songs.

Today’s song is written by Anjaan and sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is performed by Asha Parekh.

Asha Parekh recently celebrated her 77th birth anniversary on this 2nd October. (She was born on 2nd October 1942). We belatedly wish her a very healthy and peaceful life ahead.

This song happens to be a song in the ‘villain’s den’ where Asha Parekh and her Father Kanhaiyyalal are hostages after Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) has abducted them. And he forces Asha Devi (Asha Parekh) to dance in his den …

‘le baandh le ye ghunghroo… aur aisaa naach ke aaj saari sabhaa mein aag lag jaaye’

Naach …

And that is why this song …

Let us now enjoy this song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.


Song-Aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye (Heera)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

O deewaane tu sun
meri paayal ki dhun
iski jhankaar mein maut ka raag hai
ho koi sangedil
khaaq mein jaaye mil
aaj ghunghroo ke bolon mein wo aag hai
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
mujhe aise tu dekhen kyun
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

kar naa ghaayal mujhe
rang degaa tujhe
har lahu ka jo katraa giregaa yahaan
zulm itnaa na kar
yoon naa hadd se guzar
tu agar hai zameen to koi aasmaan
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
dekho mujhko na chhoona yoon
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne na paaye ae
bujhne na paaye …

आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए
आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए

ओ दिवाने तू सुन
मेरी पायल की धुन
इसकी झंकार में मौत का राग है
हो कोई संगदिल
खाक में जाए मिल
आज घुंघरू के बोलों में वो आग है
जा रे जा आ
जा रे जा
जा रे जा आ
मुझे ऐसे तू देखें क्यूँ
आँख जो मिलाऊं तो आग लग जाए
आँख जो मिलाऊं तो आग लग जाए ए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए

कर ना घायल मुझे
रंग देगा तुझे
हर लहू का जो कतरा गिरेगा यहाँ
ज़ुल्म इतना ना कर
यूं ना हद से गुज़र
तू अगर है ज़मीन तो कोई आसमान
जा रे जा आ
जा रे जा
जा रे जा आ
देखो मुझको ना छूना यूं
हाथ ना लगा तू के आग लग जाए
हाथ ना लगा तू के आग लग जाए ए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए … … …

“Kabeela”(1976) was produced and directed by Bholu Khosla for Khosla Enterprises, Bombay. The movie had Feroz Khan,Rekha,Bindu(special appearance),Kamini Kaushal, Imtiaz, Premnath, V.Gopal, Sudhir, Shyamkumar, Manju Bansal, Trilok Kapoor(special appearance), Dhumal, Surendranath, Hiralal, Habib, Dumasia, Nawab, Baby Sonia, Darshan, Rammi, Madan Verley, Jagadish Joshi, Sharad Saxena etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Today (10 october 2019) is the 65th birthday (DoB 10 october 1954) of Rekha. Daughter of Gemini Ganeshan and Pushpawalli, both well known movie actors themselves,

Rekha made her debut in Hindi movies with “Saawan Bhaadon”(1970). The movie was a hit. It was like a batsman hitting a century on debut.

Those were the days when Indian cricketers who scored century on debut failed to score another century in their career. A batsman called Gundappa Vishwanath had scored a century on debut at Kanpur in 1969. Like his predecessors, he struggled to score another century and people thought that his test career was doomed. It took him fourteen more tests and four more years before he scored his second test century in Bombay (in february 1973) and broke a big jinx for Indian test cricketers scoring a test century on debut. Subsequently, batsmen like Azharuddin, Saurav Ganguly, Sehwag, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma scored centuries on debut and subsequently scored more centuries.

Rekha, after her smashing debut lost her way. Movie critics of those days likened her to Faryal and commented that she was squandering her career like Faryal.

It was during 1978 that Rekha reinvented her in “Ghar”(1978). It was like an ugly duckling has transformed into a swan, with this movie.

And Rekha never looked back since.

On the occasion of her 65th birthday, here is a song from her ugly duckling days, when she was still struggling in Hindi film industry.

This song is sung by Lata. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a background song. Rekha, Feroz Khan.Prem Nath,Hira Lal, Kamini Kaushal and Sharat Saxena are visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

We take this opportunity to wish Rekha a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

hans kar yahaan khiley thhe
sajnaa
yeh woh jagah hai
hum tum jahaan miley the ae
do phool zindagi ke
hans kar yahaan khiley thhe ae

aawaaz tere dil ki
raahon se aa rahi hai
aawaaz tere dil ki
raahon se aa rahi hai
khushboo tere badan ki
baahon se aa rahi hai
jaanaa thhaa door ham se
jaanaa thhaa door ham se
kyun pyaar se miley thhe ae
do phool zindagi ke ae
hans kar yahaan khiley thhe
sajnaa aa aa aa
sajnaa aa aa aa
sajnaaa aa
sajnaa aa
