‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) was produced and directed by Atma Ram under the banner of Guru Dutt Films Combined. The star cast included Dev Anand and Sharmila Tagore in the lead roles supported by Pran, Iftikhar, Sujit Kumar, Johny Walker, Jaishree T, Lalita Pawar, Kanan Kaushal, Ramesh Deo, Raj Mehra, Keshav Rana, Janakidas etc.

The story is woven around a bridge which is being constructed over Dihing River in North-East India for a good connectivity. But the local tribals are oppose to it. They think that this is one way of imposing the slavery on the local tribes in the name of infrastructural development. This sentiment is exploited by some foreign agents who instigate the tribal chieftain to destroy the under-construction bridge. It is at this point, Dev Anand as an Intelligence Bureau Officer is sent to supervise the construction of the bridge without any hindrances.

How Dev Anand achieves the objective by overcoming the tribal opposition to construction of the bridge is the rest of the story that moves forward. If the film was to be made in English, it would have been apt to name the film as ‘The Bridge on the River Dihing’ on the lines of a well- known Hollywood film ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’.

The film’s outdoor shooting was done in Assam (near Digboi where a bridge was under construction), Meghalaya, and Arunachal Pradesh. During the shooting of the film, the crew faced the hostile crowd led by the Naga Students Federation in Shillong. Some stone throwing incidences were also reported. The Naga students felt that it was a politically motivated film to insult the Naga tribal culture. Sharmila Tagore played the role of a Naga girl named ‘Sekrenyi’ which is the name of the holy festival of Angami Naga tribe. It is said that with the intervention of Bhupen Hazarika, the shooting of the film went on smoothly thereafter. The name of Sharmila Tagore’s character in the film was changed to ‘Soo Reni’.

In my younger days, I had read in the newspapers about the opposition of local tribals in laying the railway tracks in Meghalaya (Guwahati to Byrnihat). I understand that this line is yet to be operational. The same problem is faced for the railway track between Silchar and Imphal in Manipur. The main worry the local tribals is that good connectivity would lead to the influx of outsiders in their tribal belts threatening their own existence and culture. I feel that ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) was a ‘half-baked’ attempt to remove tribal population’s worries about the likely cultural dominance by the rest of India over the North-East’s tribal culture.

At the time of the release of the film, Naga Students Federation took out the protest march for banning the film on the ground of undermining the Naga tribal culture. They also felt that a couple of songs in the film sounded racial. In any case, they opposed the released of the film in Nagaland and Meghalaya. There were violent protests on the streets of Shillong. Finally, the film was released in 1973 after incorporating a notice in the film itself that ‘customs depicted in film, folk dances, dresses etc have no parallel with any of the tribes in Nagaland’. Some songs’ wordings were also changed to appease the protestors.

Initially, Danny Denzongpa was to perform the role of Dev Anand’s local associate in the film. S D Burman had already recorded a song in Danny voice along with Lata Mangeshkar. However, Johny Walker insisted with Atma Ram that he should also get a role in the film. Atma Ram agreed to take Johny Walker in place of Danny. However, Danny’s first song as a playback singer was retained which was picturised on Johny Walker. I personally feel that the role of a local person would have fitted well on Danny because of his facial feature. But at that time, Danny was a newcomer to protest. His consolation must have been the debut song he sang under the baton of S D Burman which was well appreciated.

‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) had 7 songs of which six songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Six songs have been covered on the Blog, details of which areas under:

I am presenting the 7th and the final song, ‘kya ye zindagi hai kaisi bebasi hai’ from the film which is rendered by Lata Mangeshkar, S D Burman and chorus. The song is written by Anand Bakshi. The song has its uniqueness in that when Lata Mengeshkar sings, the chorus voices parallelly sing some words which I am unable to decipher.

With this song, all the songs from the film ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’ (1972) have been covered on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

My family and some members of this world of Atulsongaday, which I like to refer to as Atuldom, know my love for a few actors from the Hindi Film World. Specially the actors who graced the silver screen in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Many of the actors of that period are in the 60 to 75/80+ age group. Actors Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Rekha, Hema Malini, Zeenat Aman, Jaya Bhaduri, Dharmendra, some actors played character roles in that period etc. when they make an appearance on reality television I make it a point to see those episodes and on repeat if possible.

Kaun Banega Crorepati had one such episode on 15th October 2021. It was advertised as ‘Sholay Reunion Special’ (if I got the title right). It was like a reunion of school friends. Hema Malini and Ramesh Sippy were the guests who played the game for some charity. It was cute to see Hemaji and AB Sr. mouthing lines of all the characters – Gabbar Singh, Angrezon ke zamaane ka jailor, Veeru, Jai – whose pictures were flashed on the big screen. Hema Malini did the Jailor’s typical laugh and also “basanti inn kutton ke saamne matt nachna” and I was all eyes and ears. Imagine how soothing it must have been to see a sooper pretty lady, with her typical manner of speech, giving answers to the questions. Here I would like to mention that the questions were ‘made to order’ to enable Ramesh Sippy and Hemaji earn 25l to fund their charities. There were two highlights in the show; one was when Veeru joined the show over video call.
The other and more appropriate (IMO) part of the show was when they brought Reshma Pathan on the show. This is the lady who has played a body double for all the stunts that heroines were shown to be carrying out in the movies of the 70s and 80s. Hemaji and Rameshji showered their praises on this lady for helping out with the stunts in Sholay. They specially mentioned the action scene, after the Holi song, where a child is shown crying near the ‘merry-go-round’ and a lady comes running to rescue the child.

Towards the final section of the program they wished (in advance) The Beautiful Hema Malini for her birthday. I had also thought up a few possible songs to go with this post. Then I happened to see a comment on the blog, by Manohar Lal Dave, who had reminded that 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

We will enjoy this song from “Sanyasi” (1975) of which the blog has five songs. This is the sixth written by Varma Malik and tuned S-J and it is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing the Ever-so- gorgeous, beautiful, elegant DreamGirl on her birthday with this song.

‘Sonal’ (1973) was an obscure film which was produced under the banner of A K Productions. The film was directed by Prabhat Mukherjee. The star cast included Mallika Sarabhai and Jatin Khanna in the lead roles supported by Iftikhar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Sulochana, Sona, Gurnam Singh, Tarun Ghosh etc. It was debut film for Mallika Sarabhai and Jatin Khanna. The film’s censor certificate was issued on December 26, 1973. I am not sure if the film was released.

The name of the film’s director, Prabhat Mukherjee (1917-1997) sounded familiar to me as I had come across his name in the context of Arundhati Devi while doing a series ‘Hindi Songs in Bangla Films’ for the Blog. Arundhati Devi was the actor-singer and director of many Bangla films. She has acted with Prabhat Mukherjee in Bangla films during 1950-56.

According to Indrani Maitra, the sister of Prabhat Mukherjee, he had started his career with All India Radio, Calcutta (Kolkata) in the early 1940s. Thereafter, he switched over to Bangla films as an actor from 1950. He turned writer-director with his Bangla film ‘Maa” (1956) in which Arundhati Devi was the lead actress with Asit Baran. Prabhat Mukherjee and Arundhati Devi got married in 1955 but their marriage was short-lived resulting in a divorce in 1957 after which Aundhati Devi got married to Tapan Sinha. Prabhat Mukherjee got married for the second time, but this marriage too resulted in a divorce.

Prabhat Mukherjee also directed films in Oriya, Assamese and Hindi. ‘Shayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’ (1972) was his first Hindi film as a director in which Balraj Sahni acted with his son, Parikshat Sahni. Apart from ‘Sonal’ (1973), he also directed ‘Chimni Ka Dhuan’ (1973) with Motilal and Balraj Sahni. It appears that both these films may have got delayed in their censor certification and releases.

Prabhat Mukherjee continued to be associated with Bangla films into 1980s. While on his filmy career front, he won as many as 5 National Awards for his films that included Bangla, Oriya and Assamese during 1959-64, on a personal front, he was emotionally affected by his two divorces. To get the peace of mind, he visited Dwarkamai in Shirdi which was the place where Shri Sai Baba spent a major part of his life until his death. Here, Prabhat Mukherjee found peace, courage and strength to face the life. He devoted most of of his time studying and teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba. He also wrote a book ‘Redemption at Shirdi’ in Bengali which was later translated into English by his sister, Indrani Maitra and got published after his death in 1997.

The film ‘Sonal’ (1973) is not available for viewing on any on-line platforms. So, I had to rely on film’s booklet giving the synopsis of the story which was reproduced on ‘Cinemaazi’ in Hindi. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

College going Sonal (Mallika Sarabhai) has grown up under the loving care of her sister-in-law (Sulochana Latkar). During a family picnic, Sonal meets Dr. Rajeev (Jatin Khanna) who has been working in a leprosy hospital as a part of his desire to serve such patients. He has only two aims in his life – to conduct research to eradicate leprosy and to look after his deaf and mute sister.

Both Sonal and Dr. Rajeev meets regularly which culminates into liking for each other. They wish to get married. However, Sonal’s elder brother (Iftikhar) who is well educated and a lawyer, opposes the marriage taking an conservative view. It is his wife (Sonal’s sister-in-law) who is not so much educated but has a liberal attitude, arranges for the marriage.

Rajeev remains busy with his hospital as well as his research works for which he is assisted by Laxmi (Sona). Over a period of time, Sonal becomes jealous of Laxmi who is with Dr Rajeev most of the time. Laxmi on the other hand is jealous of Sonal who is very much loved by Rajeev. Neither Sonal could understand the importance of Laxmi in Dr. Rajeev’s research work not Laxmi understands Dr Rajeev’s love for his wife.

The situation reaches a flash point when Dr Rajeev’s close associate in research work becomes a catalyst for creating a rift between Sonal and Dr Rajeev which leads to their separation. Neither her lawyer-brother’s conservative attitudes nor a sympathetic attitude of her sister-in-law can bring the reproachment between Sonal and Dr Rajeev. Finally, the realisation on the part of Soanl that both she and Dr Rajeec are the soulmate and the external factors should not affect their relationship, gets them united.

‘Sonal’ (1973) has 4 songs written by Yogesh Gaud which are set to music by Manna Dey. In fact, after a gap of over 15 years, Manna Dey took the baton as a music director of this film which was his last film as a music director.

I present the first song ‘deewaangi deewaangi ye pyaar ki’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Manna Dey and Usha Rege. On the basis of the lyrics, it appears that the song has benn picturised on Jatin Khanna and Mallika Sarabhai during their courtship.

With this song, ‘Sonal’ (1973) makes its debut on the Blog.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 151 # Qawwalis – 14 #
———————————————————————

Qawwalis were common in Hindi films when I was growing up(1968-1983). As I grww watching them in the movies in my childhood, some qawwalis left lasting impression on my impressionable mind.

Qawwalis like ‘raaz ki baat kehdoon to’, ‘jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi’, ‘shirdiwaale sai baba’, ‘raat abhi baaki hai baat abhi baaki hai’, ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’, were the most heard qawwalis when I was growing.

‘Chadhhta sooraj dheere dheere dhalta hai dhal jaayega’ was a favourite of all ‘orchestras’ and one person from a Orchestra from Jalgaon used to sing it so well that always left the audience ‘spell-bound’. I remember this qawwali ever since.

All these qawwalisgrew up on me as I grew up in my life.

I have a special fascination for this genre of music. It always takes me to an entirely different ‘musical world’.

In the movies of ‘seventies’ qawwalis were a major attraction in the movies. Qawwalis like ‘ham to jhuk kar salaam karte hain’, ‘ham lootne aayen hain’, etc. were liked very much by the audience. There may be many more which I could have missed to mention here.

Jaani Babu Qawwal, Shakila Bano Bhopali and Aziz Nazan were the names I particularly remember whenever there was a discussion on qawwalis.
And as I had mentioned in my posts earlier that another name which I vaguely remembered was Shankar-Shambhu. At that age I could not understand the greatness of these peoples, and it is only after coming into the contact of this blog, that I got to read, learn, and know about these stalwarts in Qawwalis.

There was a phase when disco made an entry into HFM in mid-eighties to let us say till mid-nineties when Qawwalis took a little backseat (I think), otherwise they were always likened and had always been an integral part of HFM. In the recent years we have seen many Qawwalis in Hindi Films. The new digital age, technological advances in music instruments have enriched the presentation of Qawwalis. Movie makers have been experimenting by including ‘qawwali song’ or ‘fusion qawwali songs’ in their movies.

In Hindi movies qawwalis are woven with the story topic of the movie. So, we have ‘’romantic qawwalis’, ‘men vs women’, ‘husn aur ishq’, ‘celebrating a festival’, ‘devotional qawwalis’, ‘chor-police’, ‘marriage celebration’, ‘mujrim-munsif’, ‘scoring peanuts over each other’ (Atulogy), ‘nok-jhonk’, ‘teasing each other’, ‘musical competition’, and other types of qawwalis in our movies.

Or it may be a competition of poetry between two groups (read men and women mostly) where ‘qawwalis’ would perfectly fit into the plot of a movie.

In many movies they have been used to keep the suspense intact where actors, actresses would disguise themselves and enter the villain’s den to rescue their partners/friends caught by the villain. Or sometimes the villain will kidnap close relatives of the hero or heroine in the movie and ask for a ‘hefty’ ransom. And the hero/heroine would plan a song or disguise as a ‘musical-troupe’ to enter the ‘villain’s den’ to rescue a ‘child’, ‘relatives’ or a ‘famous scientist’ or a ‘police commissioner’ who would have been kidnaped by the villain or his associates.

To mis-lead the villain the hero/heroine or their friends and well-wishers would sing a qawwali and simultaneously free the innocent ones caught by the villain. Sometimes this would happen just before the climax of the movie.

In our movies we also have qawwalis where we see ‘lawful elements(police, CID) and the unlawful elements(goondas, or burglar, thieves)’ have a ‘qawwali muqaabla’ in “disguise”.

I am not a competent person to write or discuss about the technicalities of Qawwalis. But since I like them very much, I had undertaken this series and have presented some qawwalis from the ‘decade of seventies or 1971-to-1980’.

If we look on the statistics of the qawwalis already posted on the blog till today’s song, we get the following details (which could be of interest to music connoisseurs).

6) Na tum hato na ham haten
7) Us jaan e do aalam ka jalwaa
8) Kaun hai mujrim kaun hai munsif

Today’s qawwali happens when the movie is already having some interesting ‘twists and turn’ in its story. I am not going to detail it more to keep intact the interest of those who would like to or have to watch this interesting movie.

I remember when the movie was released one of my classmates had watched it soon after its release and he was full praise for Sanjeev Kumar and others’ performances in this movie.

Sanjeev Kumar was common favourite of all us friends. And in our circle of juniors and seniors we often discussed about his roles, and everybody would have likened his performance in each of his movies then.
We now move to the today’s song.

It is picturised on Moushumi Chatterjee and the actor whom I am unable to identify.

We can see Keshto Mukherjee, Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy with many others present in the picturisation of this song.
Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Lyrics are by Verma Malik and music is composed by

Let us now enjoy today’s qawwali watching Moushumi Chatterjee’s charming performance and Keshto Mukherjee’s special antics. 😊

Hullo Atuldom

Day 1 of Sharad Navratr. Ashwin Navratr. Various names for the same festival, various ways to celebrate. I have received pictures of ‘Ghatta-sthapana’, ‘Devi Shailputri’, and of course the South Indian ‘Bomma Kolu’ (or Golu depending on your mother tongue). There is a lot of beauty in the manner in which we decorate our Gods and enjoy the festival. There are special offerings, poojas, archanas, bhajans and BHOJANS too (going by the name ‘Bhog’). Then there is the ever so colour raas garba in Western India, Gujarat and Maharashtra in particular. (May not be organised on a grand scale this year, as we are still worried about the consequences of the Pandemic. Grandeur can wait)

Here is a Devi Maa bhajan to kick-off the festivites. It is from the 1978 release ‘Khoon Ki Pukaar’, the synposis of which is there in this post. The movie was directed by Ramesh Ahuja for Tahir Hussain’s TV Films. It had songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri and Gauhar Kanpuri and music director was Bappi Lahiri. Today’s song is sung by Mohd. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar and on-screen, both, Pran and Vinod Khanna lip-sync to Rafisaab’s voice and Aruna Irani sings in Lata didi’s voice. We can also see Shabana Azmi and Reeta Bhaduri seated among the devotees of the temple.

As per what I have seen a few years back, this song is used by Amjad Khan (Daku Zaalim Singh) to send a message to Daku Sher Singh (VK); who is recovering under the care of pujari Baba (ex. Dr. Bhushan played by Pran); through Bijli (Aruna Irani). That should make viewers understand what Aruna Irani and VK are exchanging in sign language (‘ishaaron ishaaron mein’ sounds better, I suppose)

With this we also remember the ever oh-so-handsome and oh-so-good looking Vinod Khanna for his birth anniversary which was yesterday. He would have been only 75.

Blog Day :

4825 Post No. : 16604

Today’s song is from the ‘1973’ movie ‘Samjhauta’. This movie had five songs already p0sted on the blog and it has been waiting for its final song since 17.07.2021, when the last song of this movie was posted.

The remaining song of this movie was already sent by our dear Prakash ji. I was about to send it with regular details to Atul ji so that we can ‘Yippeeee’ this movie.

However, when I listened to the song, its lyrics triggered some thoughts and what follows below are some real-life situations that I came across and the thoughts that came to my mind.

***
#Flashback-1, Year 2010#

Let me tell you one incidence. One fine day I was coming back, after finishing my work at the Bank at its Mundra (Kachchh) Port Branch. I was driving and on the way to my home in Mundra.

On the way there was a young lad waiving for lift. I give him lift and drive to Mundra. On reaching his destination he got off from the car and said thanks. I just enquired about him and came to know that he had finished his diploma in Mech Engineering just few months back and he was looking for a job.

He came from MP to his relatives at Mundra for job prospectus in their organisation, but that organisation did not oblige relatives of employees for job, so he was looking for other prospects.

The organisation where I was working were looking for candidates for my department i.e., Stores. So, I asked this guy to send his CV so that I can call him for an interview with the recruitment committee members.

However, there were some changes in the recruitment plans at our organisation, so it was all cancelled for then.

This guy later left Mundra to his hometown in MP and later I came to know that he got a job in a company having their works at Nagpur.

I was happy to know this.

During this period this guy was always in touch with me, as we share the same interests i.e., reading and writing.

***

I had in one of my post have mentioned how I started my professional journey and how people and my seniors helped me to become what I am today.
I will always be grateful to them for giving me the opportunity to learn and grow.

Yes, some people like me are lucky enough to get ‘right push’ whereas many like me may be deprived of opportunities or that just one chance to prove themselves, and they might have been lost permanently in oblivion. After all it is a game of luck first and your hard work later, but combination of both always.

Inheriting the generousness from my parents and other generous people who helped me, it was very natural for me to help people as and when possible, given the resources I had.

The exposure I got at the workplace was also in favour as I got to be in ‘decision-making’ positions in all my professional life except the earlier few years. After that most of the time I was as an in-charge of something or other or Head of the Department for my function (in middle management layer).
Simultaneously with working I had joined learning through distance education mode. I was also attending many behavioural and functional trainings on my own. Sometimes these would be sponsored by my employer too. This all helped a lot in the growth of me professionally, personally, and functionally.

As usual for the position of a departmental head people always keep approaching for employment either for their near and dear ones, or distant relatives or friends and their relatives. Given my nature I always tried to help and give opportunity to people coming to me irrespective of their caste, creed, religion, and region.

I always tried to select people on the merit basis and those who are ready to work hard.
Since I had myself already gone through a tough route, I expect others to put that much of effort to gain the knowledge of the subject at work. Also, I wanted to ensure that no injustice is done to anybody.

Secondly, I was very much interested in training the new recruits, explaining them the processes and the needs of complying with the standards, by arranging various training programs for them.
I always enjoyed the joy of training somebody and imparting the training on functional as well as behavioural and the management standards. I was always ready to share whatever I know about anything.

I also wanted the boys to give their 100% percent and enjoy the work. Keep trying, learn new things and share all that I give to them. And so that simultaneously they can grow in their personal and professional life. (I must mention here that all of them who worked under me keep in touch with me even after my leaving the organisation and they fondly remember me. )

Sometimes I may have been more possessive for something, but whatever I had done was to achieve excellence in the function and to reduce the response time by giving prompt service to our customers – either internal or external.

During this process I was also exploring my ‘purpose’ of life. I want to realise what my true potential was. I meet my motivational guru Late Shri. Rooshikumar Pandya around this time in 2010.

My morale was very high during those days and I had also joined a new organisation as a ‘Manager’. I had also taken membership and later become a life member of AMA & QCFI in the quest of learning more. I was all enjoying this with my work.

It was then when I had got published my daughter’s poem when she was studying in VIIth standard only.
So overall I was just moving upward in all spheres of life.

#Flashback -2, Year 2015 …

I was at Nagpur and working with an engineering construction company. Before that in December’2014 I had left my job and was looking for job opportunities. I had contacted some of my close contacts – my ex-bosses – and that is how I finally landed in Nagpur.

Here I had the responsibility of maintaining supply of materials to the various sites running in different parts of the country. (It was during this period that I attended the Atulites’ gang-outs too).

Along with the responsibility at corporate office I was given an independent charge to look after our site works at Mundi (near Khandwa). We were also hiring peoples for different sites.

This guy, whom I mentioned above, who had met me at Mundra, was looking for a job. He had left the job at Nagpur, after working one year there he later joined studies for graduation in engineering. Now he had completed his studies and was looking for job opportunity.

He contacted me with a request to help him. I recommended him to my immediate senior to give him a chance.
What I was asked by my senior was how I knew this person and how he knew me?
I told the above incidence of giving lift to this person and what followed next.
(Some of my colleagues also crack jokes on me what I was doing).

How do I trust a guy whom I had meet only once and that too on the road? was the next question.

Chairman of this company was the same person who had given me a chance to work when he was my Site In charge at Parli – Vaijnath (in 1985) when I was working in construction line as a ‘storekeeper’ and had just started my journey of industrial working.

I told my senior (vice president) that we should give an opportunity to this person so that he can start earning something and shape his career further, in the same way how I was given an opportunity in the past. If I had not been given an opportunity to work in my earlier days, I would never have reached where I am today.

This person was included in the team, and he served there for almost two years. In between he was always discussing with me about his interests and each time I guided him to follow what his heart dctated. I also encouraged him as and when required.
(My guru had given us a ‘mantra’ ‘do whatever you want, but excel in whatever you do’.
This person then started uploading his ‘poetry recitation videos’ on YouTube.

Later he left the company to ‘realise his true potential’ and soon found his ‘purpose of life’. He keeps uploading his videos of ‘poem recitation’ on ‘YouTube’. Slowly his followers keep increasing on ‘YT’ and ‘Instagram’.

Meanwhile I left for Kenya for a job opportunity (where one of my ex-bosses was a director and there was a suitable opportunity suiting my profile).

***

I came back from Kenya after completing a project and I was there for almost three years.
The guy in my story is now famous as a ‘motivational speaker’, and famous for his ‘motivational poems’ and other ‘poems’ recitation’. His videos are watched and seen by many on YouTube and on Instagram.

He had also published a book of his writings.

Even today whenever we discuss he fondly remembers that day and always tells me ‘Sir, that day has changed my life forever, it is because of you whatever I have achieved today’.

***

“I quote a few lines from today’s song below

kitney hi taansen gumnaam rah gaye ae
ek mauka naa milaa to
naakaam ho gaye
tulsidas kayee hain
kayee tagore bhi yahaan
ek aap hi na samjhen
hain ghaalib aur bhi yahaan
hain laakhon kalaakaar
paarkhi ki kami hai
heerey to hain hazaar
jauhari ki kami hai

That reminded me of the following ‘sanskrit shloka’ which my guru used to quote in his training programs.

“Aamantram aksharon naasti
Naasti mulamanaushdham
Ayogya puroshoh naasti
Yojaksya tatra durlabh”

‘There is not a single letter of an alphabet out of which you cannot make a ‘mantra’,
There is not a single root of a tree out of which you cannot make a ‘medicine’,
There is not a single person who is unfit or incapable,
The one who brings out mantra from a letter of an alphabet, medicine from the root of a tree, and the best of people, those people are rare’

***

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar. It is lip synced by Anil Dhawan on screen. We can also see Pradeep Kumar, Ajitesh Bannerjee, Junior artiste Maqsood, and dancer Chinoo Rajput and many others in the picturisation of this song.

Hullo Atuldom

I am super charged as I sit to write this post. I don’t know how to express my SURPRISE that the songs of this movie are yet to appear on the blog. I made a quick call to Atulji to confirm that this movie has not yet made its debut. I was making sure that it doesn’t appear under any other spelling. Atulji said that he is aware that it is yet to debut, so let us have it.

This 1980 release is a fantasy film based on a story from the Arabian Nights. Something that every child would have grown up reading, hence I am refraining from giving the story/ synopsis. I shall just say that this film had a generous dose of romance and romantic songs along with good quality action scenes. The film was an Indo-Soviet joint venture with the Uzbek director Latif Faiziyev and Indian director Umesh Mehra directing a set of Bollywood stars/actors and some Russian, Caucasian and Central Asian actors. Anand Bakshi and RD Burman were in charge of the songs that are popular till today and only three singers were used- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

Before I present the song I would like to go into flashback with this song. That was to wish the actor Prem Chopra on his birthday. In there I had mentioned how his pairing with Rajesh Khanna was sure formula for success in the early 70s- he appeared in 19 movies as a co-actor of Rajesh Khanna.

Another actor with whom he was acceptable to the audiences was Dharmendra with whom he has appeared in around 30 films.

There are other actors with whom he has been regularly appreciated with and has done sizeable number of films – like 16 with Manoj Kumar, 24 with Amitabh Bachchan. I would like to know the count of films that Prem Chopra appeared, with respect to other prominent actors like Dev Anand, Jeetendra, Feroz Khan, Sunil Dutt, Rishi Kapoor etc. I know for sure that he has acted in 4 movies with his idol Dilip Kumar.

In my post of the 23rd September 2018, I had also mentioned how there were numerous songs where the heroines will sing love songs with the characters played by Chopra in order to get a response from the hero. Today’s song is similar to Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972) with a minor difference. Here we have the heroine dancing to the tunes of the hero. The ultimate aim being to rescue the girl from her predicament and an unwanted marriage with the wily Shamsher (Prem Chopra). Here the hero Alibaba (Dharmendra) has come as a Jadugar and has promised Shamsher that he will do some ‘mumbo-jumbo’ and get Marjina (Hema Malini) agree to his marriage proposal. For starters, the Jadugar gets Shamsher to dance and Marjina stands like a statue. But when she sees her lost ‘paayal’ (called ‘ghungroo’ in the song) she recognizes the Jadugar and joins him in the song-n-dance routine.

I have read in one of Prem Chopra’s interviews in the past, that he is scared of snakes and that he was petrified to shoot this song as the last stanza has a snake appearing out of nowhere. So possibly the priceless expression that he has given was not acting.

Prem Chopra has been a great supporting actor for almost 61 years. He began his career with a Punjabi film in 1960, followed by brief roles in ‘Hum Hindustani’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ etc. ‘Shaheed’ along side Manoj Kumar can be said to be his breakthrough film. ‘Upkaar’ and ‘Do Raaste’ also need to be mentioned as they presented him with different types of characters in spite of being Gray-shaded.It is well-known that he is connected to the Kapoor Khandaan as his wife and Raj Kapoor’s wife were sisters so that also makes him a brother-in-law to Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath and Narendra Nath.
Here is wishing this Tall and Handsome actor on his 86th birthday good health and lots of happiness.

Presenting ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’ (1980) on the blog, with this song, which I have written without hearing the video. After writing the lyrics I heard the song and found one error in what I had noted. I found that in all these years (41 years) I was singing this one line bas hadd kar di o bedardi wrong.


Song-Jaadugar jaadoo kar jaayega(Alibaba Aur 40 Chor)(1980) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Blog Day :

4811 Post No. : 16580

In recent days the ‘Yippeeee’ activity has taken a backseat on the blog. The ‘Yippeeee’ project too has been slowed down, and it is almost one year now when our ‘Yippeeee Guru’ had appeared last giving his darshan to ‘Yippeeee members like me’. 😊

I wished we should be ‘Yippeeee’ing’ at least one movie in a week if not daily. The last Yippeeee moment on the blog was on 27th July’2021 when the final song of movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ got covered and the movie got YIPPEED.

There are quite a few movies waiting for their final song to be covered in the blog and thus getting admitted to the club of YIPPEED movies.

Today we induct one more movie to the hall of fame of YIPPEELAND. This movie is ‘Saudagar-1973’.

I had watched this movie years back on a TV channel. But until I had not watched this movie, I mainly associated this movie with its songs ‘Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon’ and ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ . I think these two songs were the well-known songs from this movie. But after watching the movie I do like other couple of songs from this movie and mainly the ‘majhi song’ – ‘door hai kinaaraa’ which grows up on us as we listen to it more and more. I like the movie and story content and presentation too.

This movie debuted on the blog on 04.04.2009 with its first song Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon. After that within a gap of less than two weeks the second song of this movie was posted on the blog and this was ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ which got posted on 15.04.2009.

One more known song from this movie i.e., Tera mera saath rahe followed the second song just after a gap of one day and this was posted on 17.04.2009. The fourth song of this movie followed the third song and was posted on next day i.e., on 18.04.2009. The fourth song posted on the blog was ‘Door hai kinaaraa, gehri nadi ki dhaaraa’.

After this fourth song the movie had to wait the next ten years when its fifth song was posted on the blog. This song was presented by Shri. Sudhir ji. He discussed the story and other details of this movie in his post. This fifth song was ‘champa nahin, chameli nahin, main genda nahin, gulaab nahin… main hoon phool baano’. I would request our readers to visit this post to read about the movie in detail. This song was posted in ‘Blog Ten Years Challenge’ on 04.04.2019. This was the fifth song from this movie posted on the blog.

The sixth song of this movie then appeared after a gap of more than a year and was posted on the blog on 09.10.2019. This song was ‘Husn hai ya koi qayaamat hai’. This song-post was presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji as tribute to the music director Ravindra Jain on his Remembrance Day. Peevesie’s Mom ji had also discussed about the story and other details of the movie in her post. I will not repeat them all again here.

Today’s song is the seventh and final song of this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Padma Khanna lip-syncs the song on the screen. Amitabh Bachchan is also seen in the picturization.

“Saudagar-1973” was a ‘Rajshri Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay’ ‘s presentation. It was directed by Sudhendu Roy. It had Nutan, Amitabh Bachchan, Padma Khanna, Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V. Gopal, C.S. Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadir, Rasraj, Paritosh Chaudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Roy, Jugnu, Chandu Ilaahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habiba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiyya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, Baby Shameena and many others.

This movie had seven songs. All songs of this movie were written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Saudagar-1973’ as mentioned in HFGK-Vol-V (1971-1980).

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 150 # Year -1971#
———————————————–————————

We are celebrating ‘fifty years’ of the year ‘1971’, and discussing the movies released during that year and their songs.

In one of my earlier post I had mentioned the details of movies released from 01st January’1971 to 30th April’1971.

Today we look at the movies released between 01st May’1971 to 31st August’1971.

Here is the list: –

33 Tere Mere Sapne Vijay Anand 13.05.1971 Y ippeeee’ed
34 Tulasi Vivaah Chandrakant 22.07.1971 3/14 Songs posted

We can see from the above table that three movies viz. ‘Baghaawat’, ‘Dakoo Maan Singh’, and ‘Maayaa Baazaar’ have not yet made their debuts on the blog.

The songs from these three movies seem to be unavailable as of now (as I could not find them). One movie ‘Hulchal’ had no songs in it. That gives us thirty movies from the total of thirty-four movies which have been represented on the blog.

Out of these thirty movies exactly half numbers i.e., fifteen movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, eleven movies from this period 01.05.1971 to 31.08.1971 still have a few songs left to be covered. Out of these eleven movies I have presented songs from ‘Badnaam Basti’, ‘Bahke Kadam’, ‘Brahmaa Vishnu Mahesh’, ‘Iraadaa’ and ‘Shaan E Khuda’.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan’. I had not listened to the songs from this movie earlier and even the name was new to me when I came across it first time. I listened to the today’s song while preparation of this post and liked the song too.

“Puraani Pehchaan-1971” was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Durga Films, Bombay’.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Tanuja, Madan Puri, Bela Bose, Shammi, B.B. Bhalla, Tarun Bose, Dhanraj, Dilip Dutt, Johny Whisky, Sangeeta, Rafia Sultana, and others.

This movie had six songs composed by Music Director Bhushan and lyrics for all songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Following is the details of the songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Bachpan ka saath chhoota hai jaise ki khwaab toota hai Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Murli naa chhed Kaanha Asha Bhonsle
03 Ye naa hamse poochhiye mil gayaa hai kya hamen Mohd Rafi,Asha Bhonsle 24.12.2012
04 Aye jaan e bahaaraan rooh e chaman Mohd Rafi 27.01.2016
05 Aa aa, aa jaa, mujhe neend aa gayi thhi, kisi dard ne jagaaya Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today
06 Aaj ki raat nahin dil ko jalaane ke liye Asha Bhonsle

Geet Kosh-V mentions that the title for this movie was changed later from ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ which was its initial title given. Also, the 78 RPM records for the soundtracks of this movie were released by this name – ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ only.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1971.

Two songs from this movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan-1971’ have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is Tanuja lip syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also see in the picturization of this song are Sanjeev Kumar, Bela Bose, Madan Puri and others.

This song seems to be a ‘haunting’ song in the movie. I have not watched this movie, so can’t say much about it.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

The picturization of this song reminds us of similar other songs in Hindi movies, e.g., ‘rulaa ke gayaa sapnaa mera’ from ‘Jewel Thief-1967’ etc. But we do not exactly know in what context the today’s song happens.

However, we can listen and enjoy the today’s song …

As mentioned above singer for today’s song is Asha Bhonsle and lyrics are by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music is composed by Bhushan.

Blog Day :

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was suitable for 19th August. 19th was the remembrance day of Khayyam the music composer who began his journey in Bollywood in 1947, when he sang a song with Zohrabai Ambalewali. His first as a music director was in 1948 as ‘Sharmaji’ of the ‘Sharmaji-Varmaji’ composer Duo. The statistics page of the blog says that Khayyam saab has given music to 377 songs in 42 movies. That may seem too little when compared with music directors who were active during that period; but each song of his were ‘pure pleasure on the ears’. Songs like ‘shaam-e-gham ki kasam’ (1953) or ‘tum apna ranj-o-gham’ (1964) are still popular as also the hits from the ’70s and ’80s: ‘aa jaa re, aa jaa re o mere dilbar aa jaa’, ‘kabhi kabhi mere dil mein khayal aata hai’, ‘dikhayi diye yun ke bekhud kiya’, and many more that I grew up listening to, of course at that age only the songs used to play in my head, I never knew details about singer, composer, lyricist etc.

The song with this post is also one such song, one that was only heard and details of which I gathered at the time of writing this post. I had heard it in the ’80s at the time “Noorie” released. Possibly not as often as the other popular songs from “Noorie” viz. Aa jaa re and Chori chori koi aaye.

“Noorie” (1979) was a movie directed by Manmohan Krishna (the popular character actor of those times) under Yash Chopra’s production. It had a cast of lesser known actors (at that time) like Poonam Dhillon, Farooque Sheikh, Bharat Kapoor, Iftikhar, Madan Puri, Gita Siddharth, Padma Khanna etc. The movie was a simple love story with the lovers being separated due to the death of the girl and in the final scene the lovers are united when they are buried beside each other. In the interim Bharat Kapoor (who plays a negative character) upturns the love cart of the lovers by killing the girl’s father, sending the boy away on a made-up-errand, raping the girl etc., which has the girl committing suicide. The boy returns, learns the cause of his beloved’s death and in his bid to avenge it, is killed. Here I shall add that the bad-man or villain also doesn’t escape punishment as the girl’s pet dog eventually kills him.

The playback singers used in that movie were Pamela Chopra, Jagjit Kaur, Asha Bhonsle, Anwar, Lata Mangeshkar, Nitin Mukesh and Mahendra Kapoor and S. K. Mahan (the character actor who used to be mostly seen in Yash Chopra movies. He is the one in the orange jacket at the beginning of this song). Of the 6 songs three (one song has two-versions)were written by Jan Nisar Akhtar, 2 by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and one by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Today’s song is written by Jan Nisar Akhtar whose remembrance day also happened to be 19th August.

Jan Nisar Akhtar has penned some memorable songs in a career spanning about 30 years but he was essentially a writer of poems, ghazals and nazms. He was awarded the 1976 Sahitya Academy award for his work ‘Khaak-e-dil’ a collection of poetry. His legacy is being carried forward by his son Jaaved Akhtar and grandchildren Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar.

The song is in the voices of Pamela Chopra, Mahendra Kapoor, S K Mahan and Jagjit Kaur who died a few days back on 15th August. I am not attempting an tribute to the (recently) departed singer of such wonderful songs as ‘dekh lo aaj hum ko jee bhar ke’; ‘kaahe ko biyaahi bides’; ‘saada chidiyaan da champa ve’ etc. Jagjit Kaur’s end came a few days before her husband Khayyam saab’s anniversary. Must be a measure of the love between the musical couple.


Song-Aashiq ho to aisa ho (Noorie)(1979) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, S K Mahan, Pamela Chopra, Jagjit Kaur, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Khayyam
Mahendra Kapoor + S K Mahan
Pamela Chopra + Jagjit Kaur

aazma humko kabhi
pyaar hi pyaar hain hum

jaan dene ke liye
tujpe taiyaar hain hum

hum koi ghair nahin
tere gumkhaar hain hum

aaaa aaaa aaaaa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

husn waale koi jaadu sa jaga dete hain
yaar do roz mein yaaron ko bhula dete hain
baat jab kehte nasha ishq ka taari bhi rahe
husn se pyaar rahe

yaaron se yaari bhi rahe
yaaron se yaari bhi rahe
yaaron se yaari bhi rahe
yaaron se ae ae
yaaron se yaari bhi rahe ae ae ae
ke aashiq ho toh

ja ja ja
ke dilbar ho toh

ke ke ke ke ke
ke aashiq ho toh aisa ho
ke dilbar ho toh aisi ho
ke aashiq
ke dilbar
ke aashiq
dilbar
ke aashiq
dilbar
aashiq ho toh aisa ho
ke dilbar ho toh aisi ho
