Hullo Atuldom

I have been getting reminders and ‘pokes’ (a term from Facebook) in the form of personal messages from a few Atulites who are asking me why the sudden slump on my part. Now I know what Atulji goes through when all of us question him on “Blank days”. I also am feeling like the first-follower of the blog ‘Rajaji’ who took a few weeks to reach his 200th post with ghodi pe hoke sawaar.

This slump can be attributed to the festival season and having my Mom-in-law for company. I would like to copy-paste a thought that Rajaji has written in his 200th post (sorry for not taking your permission Rajaji)

“No excuses though – if Atul can write up and post songs every single day, I just cannot have an excuse for taking five weeks for one post. :-)”.

In spite of the mentioned reasons I managed to sneak in my post number 399 and that was only 10 days back.

December 3rd is one of those days in the calendar, followed by ASAD, which has two occasions to have special posts. To start of let me wish the “Raunaq-e-blog” a very happy birthday. This was a title bestowed on the recipient in a post three years ago on this date. May she have a healthy, peaceful, musical and joyful day. May her appearances on the blog and WA group be more regular. Wishing our Ben Katie a very happy birthday. On this day I present you a song of the forever PACHCHEES romantic hero of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and the better part of the 80s. May you be as Evergreen and Hyperactive as him.

I went through the filmography of the forever Pachchees Dev Anand and found a few songs of his first decade in the film industry yet to be posted here on the blog. I had almost made up my mind about the song too. One such song was from the movie “Ham Bhi Insaan Hain” (1948) of which the blog has only four from a possible nine songs. But the hurdle for me was the name of the music director “H P Das”. A name new to me; as also the names Amir Banu, Ramola Devi, German, Niharika, Pal, G. Das etc. I decided that this movie and its songs should be handled by the more knowledgeable stalwarts of ASAD. I decided that I shall tread on safe territory and have chosen a song from a movie of the 70s.

I have seen this movie ages ago on Doordarshan and recall that it had something to do with the construction of a bridge to connect India’s North East with the rest of the country. The favoured villain of those times- Pran- played a chieftain of that region who is against the bridge construction as this will lead to the betterment of the locals whom he has kept under his bondage. Sharmila Tagore played the local girl who is ready to take up arms at her Chief’s behest and goes on a mission to sabotage the bridge. Dev Anand played the engineer in-charge of the Bridge Project and also the reason for Sharmila Tagore’s change of opinion about the bridge, its construction, and her chief ‘Deng Do Rani’ (Pran). Johnny Walker, Lalita Pawar, Sujit Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Jayshree T., Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Iftikaar etc played supporting characters. The movie had music by S. D. Burman and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The movie’s title was picked up from Allama Iqbal’s patriotic song “Saare Jahaan se Achcha”. In fact “saare jahaan se achcha” features in the movie too in the voice of Sushma Shrestha and chorus.

Gori gori gaaon ki gori re was the first song to be posted. Mera naam yaao mere paas aao was next. Then came this song Naina soyi soyi raina jaage jaage by our in-house encyclopedia who has made some interesting observations about Lata singing with Uncommon Singers. There was another uniqueness about that song- it was possibly the only time when Lata, SD Burman and RD Burman featured together.
The last song to be posted has been Ho tushima ree tushima aa gaya toofaan by Sadanand Kamathji and it was a tribute to Burmanda on his anniversary.

There are three more songs left of which the film version of “Saare Jahaan se Achcha” is one.

Before we get on to the song I must thank Atulji for allowing us as contributors on his blog and posting my mail to him giving details of the song as my first post ever as lyrics- contributor. That prompted me to send a few more lyrics as farmaishes and then the writing bug bit me and the number of days between my posts have been steadily reducing. I know my contributions are not masterpieces but my own thoughts and feelings. How I wish I had the patience of Sadanandji to write well-researched posts. Or the knowledge of Arunkumarji whom I call Guruji or even the resources (read HFGK) of people like Sudhri, Avinashji etc. I must also mention the love of Nahmji’s love for poetry and poets and her posts have been enlightening.

Today’s song is filmed on Dev Anand and a bunch of kids something on the lines wallah kya nazaara hai mausam bada pyaara hai, galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani; hans tu hardam khushiyaan ya-gham etc. These were the songs that followed “Ye Gulsitaan Hamaara” but all were feel-good songs where Dev Anand is trying to cheer the crowd. It is in the voice of Kishore Kumar. It is nine years since Devsaab passed away and it feels like yesterday. Thinking of the fabulously stylish and charming actor who entertained us for decades.

Once again wishing our Ben Katie on her birthday. Let us have all the birthday songs on loop for her.

Blog Day :

4517 Post No. : 16072

‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979) haa an impressive list of actors of the new wave films but I do not recall having read or heard about this film. So, I recently watched this film on a video sharing platform. The story of the film was interesting and was in keeping with Basu Chatterjee’s favourite subject – the lives of middle-class people in urban setting.

‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979) was produced under the banner of Jamu Productions and was directed by Basu Chatterjee. The star cast included Shabana Azmi, Shekhar Kapoor, Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab, Dina Pathak, Kiran Vairale, Vidya Sinha, Devendra Khandelwal, Arvind Deshpande etc. The film was based on a short story written by a well-known Hindi writer, Mannu Bhandari. Incidentally, Basu Chatterjee’s ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) was also based on Mannu Bhandari’s short story, ‘Yahi Sach Hai’. She has also written screen-play of the film ‘Swaami’ (1977), directed by Basu Chatterjee. Incidentally, Basu Chatterjee’s maiden directorial venture, ‘Saara Aakash’ (1969) was based on the first part of Rajendra Yadav’s novel of the same name. Rajendra Yadav is the husband of Mannu Bhandari.

Mannu Bhandari is one of the pioneers of Hindi literary movement called ‘Nayi Kahaani’ (New Story). Under this movement, stories are written based on the real-life experiences. She generally writes short stories on middle class women who is financially independent and intellectually capable to share the responsibilities on equal footing with men. Most of the character in her short stories are woman-centric. I have given story-writer’s background just to give an idea as to how the story in the film unfolds.

Shekhar (Shekhar Kapoor) and Lekha (Shabana Azmi) are from small towns who had made Mumbai their work place. Both are in love with each other and wants to get married. But their families are against this marriage because both belong to different castes. One day, both of them get married under Special Marriage Act, without the knowledge of their respective parents and start living in a small rented tenement. In the evening they spend time with their theatre friends with Sushma (Zarina Wahab) and Dinesh (Amol Palekar) being part of their friend circle, among others.

Sushma and Dinesh love each other but Sushma’s father is against this marriage. The real cause for the opposition to the marriage is that Sushma is the only bread-winner for the family, her father being unemployed for months. Both of them are encouraged by Shekhar and Lekha to get registered marriage which they follow and a date is decided for the registered marriage. In the group, there is Sipra (Vidya Sinha) who has lost her husband at a very young age with a small kid to look after. Lekha encourages her to start a play school for the small children and arranges the students and a place to start the play school. She is helped by her theater friends. (I think, the characters of Sushma, Dinesh and Sipra have been introduced just to jextapose the problems which have been faced by Shekhar and Lekha).

In all these efforts and also due to change of climate from town to Mumbai, Lekha is not keeping good health. Shekhar advises her to visit his parent’s house in a small town for few days for a change which she reluctantly agrees. Earlier, she had visited the place with Shekhar after the marriage for a very short stay. This time, Lekha stays for a longer period and during the initial period, she is quite happy with open sky, greenery all around and more importantly, the easy life away from the hustle bustle of Mumbai.

Within a few days of her stay, Lekha realises that all is not well in the house. The house has been divided into two parts with one part being occupied by Shekhar’s uncle and his family. Shekhar’s house is run by his mother (Dina Pathak) and Lekha’s mother-in-law (here after I will call her as ‘matriarch’) who is the final decision-maker in the house. Her father-in-law (Arvind Deshpande) has no say in the running of the house.

Shekhar’s younger brother, Shanker who is studying for BA wants to change his spectacles as his number has changed and he is getting head-ache. But his mother is not prepared to spend money for a new spectacles. On the other hand, she is prepared to spend money for some rituals to be conducted by a swami. Lekha tries to convince the matriarch by saying that Shankar’s study will be affected but it is of no use as she thinks that Shanker wanted to change the spectacle for more fashionable frame. (This shows the misplaced priorities for spending money in a rural/semi-urban setting).

In the house, the elder daughter-in-law who has become widow is looked down by the mother-in-law. Her younger brother, Diwakar (Devendra Khandelwal) occasionally visit her widow sister in the pretext of enquiring her well-being. But the real reason for this visit is to meet Gauri (Kiran Vairale), the younger sister of Shekhar. Both like each other but the matriarch is against Gauri meeting him since he happens to be the brother of her elder daughter-in-law whom she hates. With all these problems, Lekha feels suffocated even under the vast open place and a leisure life. She thinks of returning to Mumbai.

The matriarch finally decides to get Gauri married to a widower who is almost double the age of Gauri. Lekha tries to convince the matriarch that Gauri should get married to Diwakar who not only loves Gauri, but is also educated. Again, the matriarch has her own way and fix the date for Gauri’s marriage with a widower. Lekha is frustrated. She has to stop this marriage. Since Lekha has already decided to return to Mumbai, she tells both Gauri and Diwakar to run away from the town and board the same train in which she is returning to Mumbai. While Gauri agrees, Diwakar develops cold feet and politely refuse to become the part of the escape to Mumbai with Gauri. Lekha has no option but to take Gauri with her to Mumbai to stop her forcible marriage to a aged widower. In this plan, she takes into confidence, the matriarch’s sister-in-law and her elder daughter-in-law.

In Mumbai, Sushma and Dinesh have got married and are staying in Shekhar’s house while Lekha was out of Mumbai. They are happy as their parent have reconciled to the marriage. Shekhar and Lekha offer Dinesh and Sushma to continue to stay in their house until they find a house for themselves. She consoles Gauri that they will look for a suitable bridegroom for her in Mumbai. The film ends with Lekha’s dialogues as under:

‘Hum log yahin achche hain.
Ye muthi bhar aasmaan, ye chhoti si jagah
Lekin yahaan din mein hosla to hai’

[We are happy here (in Mumbai).
A fistful of sky, a small room.
But here there is an encouragement to survive].

I liked two aspects of the film. First, the director has refrained from showing the usual quarrelsome relationship between mother-in-law (Dina Pathak) and the daughter-in-law, Lekha (Shabana Azmi). The villainous elements in mother-in-law is visible but these do not turn into conflicts as Lekha treats her mother-in-law as a product of a small town and understands her psychology. Mother-in-law on the other hand restrains herself while dealing with Lekha as she realises that Lekha is not only financially independent but she is also educated to deal with such situations.

The second aspect of the film which I like is that there is element of realism when Lekha plans the escapes of Gauri and Diwakar to get married in Mumbai by registered marriage. That Diwakar develops cold feet to this plan is in keeping with the psychology of the small town where societal pressure can make the life of his parents miserable if he runs away with a bride to be. Whether Diwakar would eventually comes to Mumbai to get married to Gauri or not has been kept open in the film with a dialogue that if Diwakar does not turn up, Lekha and her friends would arrange for a suitable bridegroom for her.

The entire film is centered around the character of Shabana Azmi with Dina Pathak getting a fairly good exposure in the film. Shekhar Kapoor has early presence in the film. But during Lekha’s visit to town, he is no whre to be seen in the film. Finally, he comes back in the frame only towards the end of the film. The performance of Kiran Vairale as Gauri is very good despite this being her maiden film as per the credit titles. Rest of the cast like Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab, Vidya Sinha, are guest artists in the film.

This film reminded me that there was an adorable actress, Kiran Vairale who has left her mark in the films like ‘Naram Garam’ (1981), ‘Saath-Saath’ (1982), ‘Namkeen’ (1982), ‘Lorie’ (1984), ‘Saagar’ (1985) etc, suddenly vanished from the Hindi films. I checked her filmography and came to know that she has not been seen in films after 1986.

The only personal information I knew about Kiran Vairale at the time of her entry into films was that she was the daughter of Madhusudan Vairale, who was a cabinet minister in Government of Maharashtra and later a Member of Parliament of Indian National Congress from Akola. I found an interview of her, published in E-Times of India, January 28, 2017 which gave me some idea about her filmy career and why she left the films sometime in mid-1980s.

Kiran Vairale was exposed to acting for the first time in 1972 when she was in class XI at St. Anns High School, in Fort, Mumbai. Farooque Shaikh who was to direct a short play for the school, came to her class and out of of those called for audition, she was selected for the lead role in a 45-minute play, ‘Mirza Sahibaan’. After her matriculation, Kiran Vairale joined St Xavier’s College where Farooque Shaikh had studied and had formed Hindi drama/music group. She participated in inter-college dramas.

It was her association with IPTA from 1975 to 1984 which gave Kiran Vairale to brush up her acting. In IPTA, she did four plays with Farooque Shaikh, one among them was ‘Doosra Aadmi’ by Sagar Sarhadi. Later, the play was made into a film by Yashraj Films in 1977 in which she had a side role. Due to her IPTA connection, she got roles in many films during 1977-84, most of which were from top banners.

During her short tenure in Hindi films (1977-86), Kiran Vairale acted in 19 films some of which I have already mentioned above. In addition, she worked in one Kannada film ‘Pallavi Anu Pallavi’ (1983). In most of the films, she got the side roles like hero’s sister or heroine’s friend.

Sometime in the middle of 1980s, Kiran Vairale got married to Syed Fahd Asad Mumtaz, a nephew of Dilip Kumar (his sister, Taj Mumtaz’s son) and migrated to USA. Presently, Kiran Vairale (now Kiran Mumtaz) owns and runs one of the largest immigrant-based recruitment advertising agencies in New York.

Since I have also discussed Kiran Vairale in the article, I am presenting the song, ‘o shaam aayi rango mein rangi huyi’ from ‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979), sung by Lata Mangeshkar which is picturised on Kiran Vairale. The song is written by Yogesh which is set to music by Salil Chowdhury.

It is a boat song in which Shabana Azmi is seen along with Devendra Khandelwal (Kiran Vairale’s love interest in the film) and Desh Maheshwari in the role of Kiran Vairale’s brother.

This is the second song of the film (out of 3 songs) to appear on the Blog. The video clip has got full song but sound quality is not so good while audio clip does not have 3rd antara of the song but sound quality is good.

“Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972) was one movie that had caught my imagination thanks to its songs played on Radio Ceylon. I did not get to see this movie during its time. I would have dearly loved to watch this movie during its time but that did not happen.

By the time I was in a position to watch movies at my will, I was no longer into watching movies.

“Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films Pvt limited, Bombay. The movie had Randheer Kapoor, Rekha, Shatrughan Sinha, Padma Khanna, Sulochana, Fariyaal, Roopesh Kumar, Manmohan Krishn, Randheer, Raj Mehra, Tiwari, Keshav Rana, Ranjeet, Shaam Kumar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Master Ratan, Master Chiku etc in it with Ramesh Dev in a friendly appearance.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog:-

Song post number Date Song
147 13 October 2008 Gum hai kisi ke pyaar mein
252 13 November 2008 Rampur ka waasi hoon main Laxman mera naam
9508 26 February 2014 Albela re ruk jaana
10912 26 February 2015 Kaahe apnon ke kaam nahin aaye tu Multiple version song
15958 10 October 2020 Arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan

One can notice that the movie had made its debut in the blog in 2008, during the initial months of the blog ! It has taken more than 12 years for this movie to finally get YIPPEED. It has taken 4426 days for all its songs to get covered in the blog.

Here is the seventh and final song from “Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Padma Khanna, with villainous characters roaming all around her.

With this song, all the songs of “Rampur Ka Laxman”(1972) get covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day :

4509 Post No. : 16053

Today’s song is a multi-singer song. It is from the 1976 released Madan Mohla produced and directed “Dus Numbri”. It had Hema Malini {who seemed to be favourite of all the heroes of the 50s & 60s and wanted a lease in their career ;-)} Manoj Kumar and a whole lot of Manoj Kumar-movie-regulars viz Premnath, Pran, Kamini Kaushal and Bindu. The movie was a musical with six songs.

I have very vague memories of what the movie was all about. Something to do with Manoj Kumar and Hema’s families being friends at the start of the movie. Then Premnath gets into a group that has interests in printing fake currency, which Om Shivpuri or Pinchoo Kapoor (Hema’s father) accidentally discovers and so is promptly bumped off, which drives her mother crazy due to shock (mother is also played by Hema, that is shown in Kamini Kaushal’s flashback). Some twist in the story leads Hema to a local Aunty’s adda (tavern) and Manoj Kumar becomes a “Dus Numbri” who is out to expose the evil doers of society. He has Pran (a constable) shadowing him for most of the movie and who is later revealed to be a SP or Commissioner. Then we have Bindu, a dancer, who has some clue to the gang of currency-fakers and that gives us a situation for a song where we have Premnath, Manoj Kumar and Pran (in disguise of course) trying to outwit Bindu into parting with the die of the currency printer. Simple 🙂 . It is later that we come to know that even Bindu is also a cop-in-disguise. Here I must add that only Manoj Kumar’s horrible getup doesn’t give him away but all the other two actors can easily be recognized.

Two songs from the movie is already present on the blog. One was contribution by Avinashji –Ye duniya ek numberi to main dus numberi and other by Maheshji- Na tum ho yaar aaloo na hum hain yaar gobhi.
.
Here is the third song with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Mukesh as playback singers. Let us enjoy it and wish Prem Nath Malhotra on his birthday today. He would have been 94 today.

He started his journey in Bollywood with “Ajit” in 1948 (of which we don’t have any songs on the blog). The same year we had Premnath in “Aag” his first association with Raj Kapoor and was RK’s debut as producer- director.

Incidentally Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna was Premnath’s sister and his other sister Uma is Prem Chopra’s wife. Premnath’s brothers Narendranath and Rajendranath were also actors. He married Bina Rai, also an actress, in 1953 and his son’s Prem Kishen and Kailashnath (was called Monty in films) were actors. Prem Kishen’s daughter Akanksha is an actress and son Siddharth Malhotra is a director. (Even in these modern times there is a case of same-name confusion:- there is a Sidharth Malhotra who made his acting debut in Karan Johar’s “Student Of the Year” in 2012 who has no connection to the Premnath family).

We have many movies where Premnath has had his brothers-in-law as co-actors. We have seen him as father of Dimple Kapadia in “Bobby” which was his nephew Rishi Kapoor’s debut as an adult. That is also the first role of Premnath that I recollect. Can’t get enough of the head of a fishing community Braganza who had a peculiar way of speaking.

It was later when some black-n-white were telecast by doordarshan that I learnt that Premnath the actor first began as a hero to the likes of Madhubala, Bina Rai, Nimmi etc.I loved his acting in “Johny Mera Naam”. As also the lovable mama of Hema Malini in “Aap Beeti”, sardaar of “Roti Kapda aur Makaan”, etc. His was the central character of “Dharmatma”. He turned producer director after his marriage to Bina Rai. His last screen appearance was in 1985 in “Hum Dono” after which he reitred from acting. He passed away in 1992- 18 days before his 66th birthhday.

Remembering Premnath !

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 113 # Debutant movie – Neelima-1975
——————————————

‘Neelima-1975’ is making its debut on the blog today. Music for this movie is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. So, we are adding one more Shankar Jaikishan movie on the blog today.

I do not know from where I got it into my mind, but whenever I went through HFGK Vol-V and came across this movie name ‘Neelima-1975’ I had an impression that this movie must have already been covered on the blog. But now it is clear that this movie is yet to be launched on the blog.

‘Neelimaa-1975’ was directed by Pushpa Raj for ‘A.A.N. Productions, Bombay’. It had Zaheeda, Vinod Mehra, Sonia Sahni, Ranjeet, Anjali Kadam, Shahzaad, Nazeer Kashmiri, Rafia Sultana, Sahay, Aarif, Sami, Asgar, Qaiser and others. Anwar Hussain, Suresh, and Sunil Dutt make a special guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.09.1975.

This movie had total three songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan as per details given below;

Song Lyricist
Hamaara yaar hai, ham hai, muhabbat hai , jawaani hai Majrooh Sultanpuri
Tum agar pyaar se dekho to mazaa aa jaaye Anjum Jaipuri
Tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi main wahi, mujhme sanam kya nahin Majrooh Sultanpuri

Today’s song is a duet song in the voices of Mohd Rafi and Aarti Mukherjee. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri (I think I am first time coming across this combination, or maybe I had come a song by them but now I am not remembering it).

Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Only the audio of this song is available. I think that this movie ‘Neelima-1975’ must be an obscure and forgotten movie.

I would request knowledgeable readers and those who have watched this movie to throw more light on this movie and its songs and their picturization. (though video of one song ‘tu jo kahe ban jaaoongi’ is available on internet.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song … after listening to the song it sounds familiar and maybe I have heard it on radio earlier. I hope readers will enjoy the song too. 😊

With this song the movie ‘Neelimaa-1975’ makes its debut on the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 112 # Debutant movie – Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973
——————————————

While discussing this song ‘chhoone na doongi main haath re’ from ‘Zindagi-1964’ Atul ji had given the complete details of filmography(or discography) of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I was looking for a movie where music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan and the movie was yet to be introduced on the blog. The filmography starts from ‘Barsaat-1949’ and the last movie in this list is ‘Love In Bombay-2013’.
The oldest movie in the list not yet introduced on the blog is ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’. I am presenting a song from this movie today.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed for ‘Golden Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tony Walker.

It had Mumtaz, Sameer, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, with Jayshree T., Malka, Randhir, Yunus Parvez, Master Ripple, Baby Deepali, Moolchand Kapoor, Master Ejaz and Chaman Puri and Johny Walker.

This movie was written by Mushtaq Jalili, and editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie had total five songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Here are the details of these songs;

Song Lyricist
Dekho dil na kisi ka toote… pyaar ka rishtaa sachchaa rishta, baaki rishte jhoothhe Indeevar
O ho ho ho … aansoo ko paseene mein badlo … mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai Indeevar
Oye, nakh nakh nakhre waali… de de re dil mera … Shakeel Badayuni
Mera naam hai Flory … Shakeel Badayuni
Haay haay dukhi jaaye mori kamariyaa… Shakeel Badayuni

Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonlse and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The songs in this movie were penned by Shakeel Badayuni (who by the time of release of this movie had passed away on 20.04.1970) and Indeevar.

For today’s presentation I have selected a motivational song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Indeevar. And music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

With today’s song, ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ makes its debut on the blog …

Let us now listen to this song with a message….

Song-Aansoo ko paseene mein badlo (Pyaar Ka Rishtaa)(1973) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

o ho ho ho o

aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai
aansoo ko paseene mein badlo

ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ik pal mein chhupaa hai ik jeewan
ik pal na bitaanaa baaton mein
kismat na sitaaron mein dekho
kismat hai tumhaare haathhon mein
baaton se kuchh bhi nahin hota
haathhon hi se kuchh bantaa hai
mehnat ka naam hai taaj mahal
mehnat ka naam ajanta hai
insaan ka paseena girte hi
patthar se phool nikalta hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai
aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ik roz to daulat ke badle
mehnat ka sikkaa chalnaa hai
mehnat ka sikkaa chalnaa hai
saara sansaar badalnaa hai
jab mehnat ki qeemat hogi
chaandi na kahin chal paayegi
sikkon mein nahin dhal paayegi
mehnat ko nahin chhal paayegi ee
haathon ki haraarat lagte hi *
pal mein faulaad pighalta hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

aansoo ko paseene mein badlo
mehnat se naseeb badaltaa hai
ye itna hi sach hai jitna
sooraj har roz nikalta hai

ओ हो हो हो ओ
ओ हो ओ°°°°°°°°
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

इक पल में छुपा है इक जीवन
इक पल न बिताना बातों में
किस्मत न सितारों में देखो
किस्मत है तुम्हारे हाथों में
बातों से कुछ भी नहीं होता
हाथों ही से कुछ बनता है
मेहनत का नाम है ताज महल
मेहनत का नाम अजंता है
इंसान का पसीना गिरते ही
पत्थर से फूल निकलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

इक रोज़ तो दौलत के बदले
मेहनत का सिक्का चलना है
मेहनत का सिक्का चलना है
सारा संसार बदलना है
जब मेहनत की कीमत होगी
चांदी न कहीं चल पाएगी
सिक्कों में नहीं ढल पाएगी
मेहनत को नहीं छल पाएगी ई
हाथों की हरारत लगते ही *
पल में फौलाद पिघलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है
आँसू को पसीने में बदलो
मेहनत से नसीब बदलता है
ये इतना ही सच है जितना
सूरज हर रोज़ निकलता है

*(श्रवण कड़ी में)
(हाथों की ताक़त के आगे
परबत का दिल भी दहलता है )

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 7
——————————————————–

Today 15th November 2020 is the sixty-fourth birthday of actor Junior Mehmood.

On this occasion here is a ‘birthday’ song which he is performing for other ‘child artists birthday’ in the movie while doing jigs in his own unimitable style.

I had earlier planned to send an older write-up with a song from ‘Bachpan-1969’, which I had sent last year and was not posted. However I am holding it for the future now. Because it is linked with a task now. 😊

Yesterday we celebrated children’s day and enjoyed this song. This song is picturised on various child artists including Junior Mehmood. However as this was his first released movie and he was yet to become a ‘child superstar’ at that time. I did not include this song in this series and rather sent it separately for ‘children’s day’ celebration. I guess the songs from this movie ‘Naunihal-1967’ could be the first instance of Jr Mehmood performing on songs.

Later on, he went on to act in many movies as a child artist and he was very popular among people like me who were born and growing during those years of late sixties and early seventies. He was the most loved child artist of that era.

His acting career continued even as an adult actor. However, he didn’t get the same success and adulation in movies as an adult actor what he received as a ‘child artist’.

As a child artist Junior Mehmood achieved a ‘Superstar’ like status. Many songs were picturised on him wherein he would copy many stars and his guru the famous comedian Mehmood.

So far, we have enjoyed the following six songs in this series;

1) lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

2) Na koi paisa na ilm banaao bambai mein film

3) Mera naam hai Mehmood

4) Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

5) Aisa banoonga actor main yaaron

6) Ham hi jaanen ek torey manwa ki peer

I have marked three more songs of him (brought to my notice by our team members Peevesie’s Mom ji and Prakash ji) for presentation in future posts.

I have mentioned it in one of my earlier post in this series that there could be more songs picturised on him and we will try to bring them here and then compile the list of total songs picturised on him.

Very recently I came across today’s song. This is from the ‘1973’ movie ‘Archana’.

One very popular song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 04.01.2012. I was surprised to see that the post on this popular song has attracted no comments so far.

Perhaps that is why our Atul ji has said this in one of his post here;

“I wonder if someone has ever tried to analyse why people like some songs and not other songs. Why do some songs become timeless classics while others are forgotten after their initial run?”

Coming back to today’s song now let us have the details about this movie in brief.

‘Archana-1973’ was directed by for ‘Vikram Pictures’ Bombay. It had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Snehlata with Jagdeep, Manmohan Krishna, Bobby, Jagridar, V. Gopal, Sulochana, Shabnam, Madhu, Sushila, Shibana and Om Prakash and others.

Jr Mehmood makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Prof. Tamhane, and screenplay was written by Madhusudan Kalaelakar.
Dialogues for this movie were written by Anand Romani, editing of this movie was done by Govind Dalwadi.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 1st October’1973.

This movie has six songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri, Indeevar and Neeraj.

Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi and Manna Dey give their voices to the songs in movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. (coincidentally, nowadays I am incidentally coming across many songs of Shankar-Jaikishan some of them heard earlier and some new for me.

Here is the list of these six songs as per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Posted on
01 Jaise …. preetam se pyaar badhha jaaye Hasrat Jaipuri
02 Jab ham hain tere saath… janamdin tujhko Indeevar
03 Jiyaa mein laaga more baan preet ka Hasrat Jaipuri
04 Tan mann tere rang rangoongee Neeraj 04.01.2012
05 Jaane kis roop ki jaadubhari parchhaayi ho Hasrat Jaipuri
06 Jo dil mein chubha… ab bas mein kahaan Hasrat Jaipuri/Indeevar

Let us now enjoy today’s song where many child artists are seen.
Let us wish Junior Mehmood a ‘very happy birthday today’ and a ‘healthy, peaceful and entertaining’ life ahead.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is written by Indeevar. Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Blog Day :

4500 Post No. : 16037

Welcome all to this post, which should have come yesterday. But as they say ‘it is better late than never’ and as we on the blog say ‘it is never too late (even if the post comes after a long gap (ranging from a week to a month) of a particular special day).
😊
In any case we will be having a song to enjoy, a look-back (or glance? 😊) on the yesteryears or a brief journey ‘down memory lane’ …

I will directly come to the point now and clear the suspense that yesterday 11th November’2020 was the eighty-fourth (born on 11.11.1936) birthday of the gorgeous, beautiful, (plus sober, decent?), cheerful, ever smiling and ‘chulbuli’ actress Mala Sinha.

On the blog we today belatedly wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I got to watch many of her movies from the ‘golden era’ or ‘black & white’ era and later many of her movies from the ‘colored’ era too. I am not going to list them all here because it will be a long list. I would only like to say that I do not remember any single movie of her ‘where I have not liked her performance’. I always like her screen presence and also her appearances in the songs or song sequences.

When I was looking for information about her initial career, I got to learn that she was an approved singer of ‘All India Radio’ but never got to playback singing in movies.
Ot of the twentythree Bangla movies she acted in, she was paired with Uttam Kumar in seven movies. Interested readers can visit for more interesting information on her on ‘wiki’ here.

On the occasion of her birthday I am going to present a song picturized on her from the movie ‘Rivaaj-1972’ which I came across recently. After listening to the song I totally fall in love with this song.

‘Rivaaj-1972’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Sona Films, Madras’. (This movie was dedicated to the memory of the great K. Asif)

It was presented by H. Prasann Chand Nahar. K.C. Bokadia was the producer of this movie.

It had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar (the sub title for Sanjeev Kumar mentions ‘President award winner), Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Jr Mehmood, Baby Gauri and Zeb Rehman.
They were supported by Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Pandri Bai, Mukri, Mrs. Shaukat Kaifi Azmi, Raj Kishore, Swaraj Kumar, Subrato and others.

The story of this movie was written by R. Venkatachalam. Its dialogues were written by Kaifi Azmi.
Editing of this movie was done by R. Bhaskaran.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.08.1972.

The movie had eights songs (including a multiple version song) written by Kaifi Azmi, Indeevar, Hasrat Jaipuri, Anjaan, S.H. Bihari and Neeraj. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers for this movie.

Here is the list of the eight songs of this movie and the songs already posted have been added with their link;

Song Lyricist Posted On
Main teri prem deewaani meera Neeraj Being covered in this post
Tujh mein hoon main mujh mein hai tu S.H. Bihari 09.07.2013
Pyaara pyaara sabse nyaara aanewaala hai koyi hamaara Indeevar
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (male version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (female version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Lagey koi lottery yaa jackpot lagey Anjaan 30.01.2015
Jalaa do jalaa do jaalaa do duniya ko jalaa do Kaifi Azmi 06.11.2020
Phoolon sa mahka huaa ye reshmi tan mera Anjaan

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Today’s song is picturized on Mala Sinha where she is lip-syncing in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Sanjeev Kumar and many others are also seen in the picturization of the song which happens in a temple (the famous Meera temple of Udaipur, as mentioned in the ‘wiki’ page of this movie ‘Rivaaj-1972).

The beautiful lyrics for today’s song are by Neeraj ji.

When I listened to the song for first time around a week or ten days back, I was totally taken up by this song and fall in love with it. It grows upon us if we listen to it again and again.
This beautiful composition of Shankar-Jaikishan is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and I must say what I mentioned for Mala Sinha that I have never came across a single Suman Kalyanpur song which I had not liked and enjoyed.

With the song Suman Kalyanpur has now four hundred song on the blog. Still a long to go to cover her remaining songs. It is still below half way mark if we consider the total 857 songs sung by her in Hindi movies. Today happens to be the 4500th day for the blog. Suman Kalyanpur completing her 400th song in the blog on the 4500th day for the blog sounds quite a befitting occasion.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song …
Ed note:-Moreover, this article is the 300th article for Avinash Scrapwala as a guest contributor in the blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 111 # Debutant movie-Saazish-1975
——————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1975 movie ‘Saazish’.

This movie is making its debut on our blog. It is part of one of my ‘projects’ of bringing ‘movies with same title’ on the blog. We already have a movie with this title released in ‘1959’ represented on the blog. (Incidentally this movie was also launched on the blog with a lyrics contribution sent by me then 😊) (isme meri koi saazish nahin thhi 😊)

There are were two more movies with the same title ‘Saazish’ made in 1988 & 1998, not yet represented in the blog.

‘Saazish-1975’ was directed by Kalidas for ‘Maya Movietone, Bombay’. Kalidas was also the producer of this movie. It had Saira Banu, Dharmendra, Dev Kumar, Rajendra Nath, Madan Puri, Jagdish Raj, Murad, Gayjee, David, Helen etc. Iftekhar and Paintal make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Ranjan Bose. And screenplay and dialogues were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Waman Bhonsle and Guru Dutt Shirali.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.02.1975.

‘Saazish-1975’ has five songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Here are the details of the songs of this movie in order of their appearance (which should be according to the appearing of these songs in the movie) HFGK Vol-V 1971-1980.

Song Singer/s
Na taaj chaahiye na takht chaahiye, tera pyaar chaahiye har waqt chaahiye Asha Bhonsle
Wo bade khushnaseeb hote hain aap jiske kareeb hote hain Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur
Haay phir zaraa zaraa koi teer sa chubha, dil to huaa fidaa Sharda
Tujhe hamne chaaha apna samajh kar Mahendra Kapoor, Saira Banu
How sweet dada ji Asha Bhonsle, Ranu Mukherjee

As I mentioned above, this movie was in my ‘wish-list’ for the ‘project’ of introducing ‘movies with same titles’ on the blog. However, somehow, I had forgotten about this movie due to my attention to other posts. Our dear Prakash ji had also recently sent two songs from this movie for different occasions. But I am leaving them for future posts, because I was looking for a Suman Kalyanpur song composed by Shankar-Jaikishan (for obvious reasons -😊- regulars on the blog and those interested in statistics can guess it easily 😊).

So, today I am presenting a song from this movie sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Suman Kalyanpur.

This song is picturized on Dharmendra and Saira Banu (at foreign locations I guess) where Dharmendra is lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice and Saira Banu is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (obviously 😊).

I have not watched this movie and would like to request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie, its details and its song please.

With the today’s song ‘Saazish-1975’ makes its debut on the blog … (😊 ye zaroor meri saazish ka hissaa hai 😊)

let us now enjoy today’s song from “Saazish”(1975)…

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 110 # Tribute to actor Sanjeev Kumar #
—————————————————————————————

Today 6th November’2020 is the thirty-fifth ‘Remembrance Day’ of India’s one of the most admired and finest actors Sanjeev Kumar. He was born as Haribhai Jethalal Jariwala on in Surat on 9th July’1938. And he passed away due to a severe ‘heart attack’ on 6th November’1985.

A stint at a film school led him to Hindi film Industry and from there it was no looking back for him. He soon proved his versatility and genius in acting and also won prestigious National Film awards for Best actor two times- for ‘Dastak-1970’ and ‘Koshish-1972’.

And after that many awards and praises continued to shower on him for his various roles and class acting in movies.
But destiny has something else in store for him. While he survived a heart attack in 1976 and after that went to US to have a by-pass surgery, but it didn’t help and he suffered a massive heart attack on 06.11.1985 and passed away at the young age of forty-eight only. Though he played many roles of older age person in movies in real life he didn’t get a chance to reach that ‘older age’.

Sanjeev Kumar was an actor that everyone in Our group of cricket loving friends in our colony admired, even though they were ‘great’ fan of someone else.

I am reminded of many of his roles and the movies he acted in when I try to go down mewmory lane. But I will leave that for another post in the future. (I am also not giving here the other details of this movie as per my normal practice and leaving the same to be given with other song/s of this movie to be posted on the blog in near future).

I will now come to today’s song. It is from a movie which I remembered watching during those growing years between 1975-1980.

The movie is a ‘1972’ movie ‘Rivaaj’.

Two songs of this movie, both shared by me, have been posted on the blog earlier which were in my memory. Today’s song was also shared by me around the same time, but somehow it remains to be posted.

I will reproduce the text of my mail that I write to Atul ji then while sharing this song;

“Very happy to share this song, as it was in my vague memory and time to time haunt me some time. finally, I got it and now sharing to you.
though I do not remember the film completely now, but here in this song I got this saffron clad SANJEEV KUMAR as I had mentioned while sharing first song from this 1972 – RIVAAJ.

I am also reproducing a brief about this movie as taken from ‘Wikipedia’ here;

“Mala Sinha plays a young widow and she stays in the temple with her father Pujariji or temple priest played by Nazir Hussain. In the temple itself she meets Shekhar, Sanjeev Kumar, where both fall in love and want to get married, when opposition comes from Shekhar’s mother, Pandari Bai, who is against child widow’s re-marriage. She gets her son married to a woman of her choice played by Zeb Rehman. Lakshmi starts leading the life of a widow. Shekhar’s wife is blessed with a daughter Rajji and starts leading a contented married life, when destiny jolts him with loss of his job and death of his wife with cancer. Rajji happens to witness him lighting the pyre of her mother by Hindu custom, is unable to understand, and suffers a psychological shock thinking that her father had burnt her mother alive and would burn her too! She starts hating him and is scared of him, which further deepens the pain and loss of Shekhar.

Here respite comes for Rajji when her grandmother tells her that her mother will come back in the form of a plant or take up another woman’s form and return to her beloved daughter from God. Rajji goes to the cremation grounds again and sees a plant where her mother had been cremated. She starts talking to it as if it was her mother. Lakshmi who had come to the river nearby, chances to hear Rajji talking to the plant and filled with emotion starts talking back from the back of a small temple of God Hanuman, pretending to be her mother. Rajji is overjoyed and the ritual is repeated everyday with Lakshmi being unaware as to whose daughter Rajji is.
Meanwhile Shekhar saves the life of the wheel chair ridden sister and heiress Sulochana Latkar of Shatrughan Sinha, who appoints him as her estate manager, much to the chagrin of her brother. He is involved in saving her assets from her rogue brother many times which creates ill-will amongst them.

Shekhar is also told by his mother that Rajji meets some woman pretending to be her dead mother and Shekhar discovers that she is no other than Lakshmi who loves his daughter as her own now. Again, Lakshmi is derided by Shekhar’s mother as well as her own father Pujari ji for dreaming of having a family.

Shatrughan Sinha kidnaps Rajji and there ensues a bloody struggle which however nasty, brings back and unites Rajji, Lakshmi and Shekhar, bringing them back to the precincts of the holy Jagdish Ji Temple, the bells resounding the power and glory of God.”

Let us now listen to the today’s song and watch the great Sanjeev Kumar in ‘two-state’ of mind – ‘one totally devastated’ and want to ‘end the world’ as he has lost his beloved wife, and the other one pacifying him to ‘think and hope good fortunes coming to him in the future’.

The lyrics of this song are written by Kaifi Azmi and it is composed to music by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi and Manna Dey are the singers.

Bichhadon ko milaana bhi
Aasaan hain jalna bhi
Aasaan jalaana bhi
ae kaash tujhe aata
Sansaar basaana bhi
Aasaan hai jalna bhi
Aasaan jalaana bhi
