“Balidaan”(1971) was produced by Arun Verma and directed by Ravi Tandon. This movie had Manoj Kumar, Saira Banu, Dev Kumar, Anwar Hussan, Bindu, Manmohan etc in it.

This obscure movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the blog. That one song was discussed nine years ago, viz on 22 august 2010 by Raja.

I was not aware of the movie, but it turned out that Ava, our knowldegeable regular was not only aware of the movie, she also pointed out that Ravi Tandon (father of Raveena Tandon) made his debut as a director with this movie.

Now, nine years later, here is the second song from “Balidaan”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is a dance song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle, with a few lines by Mahendra Kapoor. I am unable to tell who is the female dancer lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. She vaguely resembles Bindu, but I cannot be sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. Manoj Kumar lip syncs in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in the picturisation of this dance song. There are many others in the picturisation. I can identify Manmohan among them.

Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

I am unable to get a couple of worrds right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Haay haay re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui(Balidaan)(1971) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

haaye haaye
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
mangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

pukaarte hain mujhko ab jawaan chhokre
kahte hain aao paas mere jaan chhokre
arre har shareef nazar beimaan ho gayi
jawaan hoke main to pareshaan ho gayi
ho deewane chanda haaye deewaane chanda
arre thhaam meri bainya mera aur nahin koi
haaye re daiyya moyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

koi meri kalaai mein kangana fansa gaya
ungli mein pyar se koi chhalla chadha gaya
koi to meri baahon se aake lipat gaya
zulfon ko chhed chhed ke jhumka palat gaya
oye ?? dena haay
?? dena
main tere gale lag lag baar baar royi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

masti se bhari teri ye naadaan jawaani
sab jaante huye bhi ye anjaan jawaani
duniya ki nigaahon mein ye toofaan jawaani
ye teri zindagi ka imtihaan jawaani
o jawaan gori haaye
o jawaan gori
ari aaj tere sab kal tera nahin koi

haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
maangta hai dil kabhi koi kabhi koi
haay
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

“Dil Aur Deewaar” (1978) was directed by K Bapaiyya for Vijaya and Suresh Combines, Madras. The movie had Jeetendra, Mausami Chatterji, Rakesh Roshan, Sarika, Ashok Kumar, Prem Chopra, Vijay Arora, Jagdeep, Roopesh Kumar, Madhu Malini, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Rajan Haksar, Pichoo Kapoor, Jagdish Raj etc in it.

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

I remember having watched the trailer of this movie while watching another movie in a movie hall. The trailer played the theme song of the movie. That theme song has been covered in the past one year ago.

Here is the second song from “Dil Aur Deewaar” (1978) to appear in the song. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song seems to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. It seems certain that the song was lip synced by Jeetendra.


Song-Mujhse poochhen mere meet (Dil Aur Deewaar)(1978) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

mujhse poochhen mere meet
geet kaise bante hain
kya hai bhed
kya hai reet
geet kaise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet

paagal hote hain kuchh log
jinko lagta hai ye rog
paagal hote hain kuchh log
baithhe aahe bharte hain
kaaghaz kaale karte hain
dil mein aati hai jo baat
likhte jaate hain din raat
uspe un deewaanon ko
kisi se ho jaati hai preet
geet aise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet
mujhse poochhen mere meet

geeton ke hain roop anek
unmein se ye roop hai ek
geeton ke hain roop anek
unmein se ye roop hai ek
gori ke matvaare nain
le jaate hain man ka chain
gauri ki matvaari chaal
ban jaati hai sur aur taal
gori ke do meethhe bol
ban jaate hain man sangeet
geet aise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet
geet kaise bante hain
kya hai bhed
kya hai reet
geet kaise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet

# Superstar Child Artist – Jr. Mehmood # 6
————————————————–
(Rafi Sings for Jr. Mehmood # 4)
————————————-

Welcome all to this post of today where we are going to enjoy a song from the 1973 movie ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’.

‘Ek Naari Do Roop-1973’ was directed by Madhusudan for ‘Co-operative Pictures’.

It was produced by S. Srivastava and presented by Shatrughan Sinha.

This movie had Shatrughan Sinha, Rashmi, Iftekhar, Madan Puri, Mehmood Junior, Malika, Lalita Kumar, Kajal, Rajni, Sapru, Chaman Puri, Honey Chhaya, Maruti, Moolchand, Qureshi, Ranvir Raj, Subhash, Master, Sheroo, Ratan, Chikoo, with Nadira and Roopesh Kumar. Asha Sachdev makes a special appearance in this movie.

Screenplay and Dialogues of this movie were written by Madhusudan. Editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar with Babubhai Shah as Assistant.

This movie had total five songs in it.

Lyrics of the songs of this movie were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and Asad Bhopali. (Naqsh Lyallpuri had penned three songs while two songs were penned by Asad Bhopali including <a href="Dil ka soona saaz taraana dhoondhega(Ek naari do roop)(1973)“>the one most well known and popular song from this movie. And incidentally both the songs penned by Asad Bhopali for this movie were sung by Rafi Saab).

So far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog, and today’s song will be the fourth song from this movie being posted on the blog.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Ganesh.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.09.1973…

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about its performance of other trivia associated with this movie. However, from the part of this movie that I have watched, I can say that this movie must be an interesting movie to watch.

‘Ek Naari Do Roop-1973’ had total five songs in it of which three songs have already been posted earlier. After posting the third song from this movie Atul ji had mentioned that he wants to take movie to ‘Yippeeee’dom’ at the earliest possible. 😊

I had then requested him that one song will be shared by me as it was planned by me for this series almost four and half years back. (however, the video or audio of this song was not available then and even now I could not find it’s audio link. It is because one of our most respected and beloved members that we have the video of this song for our enjoyment).

Also, I would like to thank Atul ji for waiting and allow me to share this song here (the first song from this movie to be posted on the blog was naturally the most known song from this movie i.e. ‘dil ka soona saaz taraana dhoondhega’, and it was posted on the 31.07.2008).

In the previous post under this series we have enjoyed the song ‘aisa banoonga actor main yaaron’ … from the movie ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani-1970’. We had also gone through the filmography of Junior Mehmood from 1967 to 1970.

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and it is picturised on Junior Mehmood and others.

With this song all the songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood stands covered, however one more song sung by Rafi Saab is there where Junior Mehmood is present without lip-syncing the song. This information was also shared by Junior Mehmood himself during my first conversation with him.

Following are the other three songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood;

Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

Na koi paisa na ilm

Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

I think there could be more songs (one I have noted) sung by other singers for Junior Mehmood which we have to explore, and thus I am not concluding this series yet. Also, in the next post we can have a look on filmography of Junior Mehmood from 1971-1980.

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Asad Bhopali and music is composed by Ganesh.
This song, may not be that much popular, is still a nice entertaining and hummable song from this movie.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

“Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) was produced and directed by B R Chopra for B R Films, Bombay. This movie was inspired from an American movie called “Lipstick” (1976). The movie was a rape and revenge movie. Many people who thronged to watch “Insaaf Ka Taraazu”(1980) were attracted to the movie hall because of this fact.

The movie had Zeenat Aman, Raj Babbar (new discovery), Deepak Parashar (new discovery), Padmini Kolhapure, Shreeram Lagoo, Simi Garewal, Iftekhar, Jagdish Raj, Vijay Sharma, Prem Sagar, Sunil Dhawan, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Yunus Parvez, Sudha Shivpuri etc in it, with Hiralal in a guest appearance and Dharmendra in a special appearance.

3 Hazaar khwaab haqeeqat ka roop le lenge 14913 8-Mar-19

The three songs that have been covered so far were serious songs all penned by Sahir Ludhianvi. The fourth and final song under discussion is a light hearted happy teasing song picturised on Padmini Kolhapure, Zeenat Aman (playing her sister)and Deepak Parashar (playing her would be jeeja ji). Sahir Ludhianvi demonstrates that he was capable of penning superb light hearted non jhonk songs as well.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 30
——————————————————————————————

May 1st 2019. International Labour Day. Also happens to be the date when the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat came into being from the erstwhile Bombay state in the year 1960. This happened as a consequence of the States Re-organisation Act of 1956 which defined boundaries for the states within India on the basis of languages. The Bombay State, that was formed by this act, was composed of different areas where Marathi, Gujarati, Kutchi and Konkani were spoken. There was a movement since 1956, which demanded that the state of Bombay be re-organised further on the basis of areas where Gujarati and Kutchi was a major language and other where Marathi and Konkani was majorly spoken. So, The Bombay Reorganization Act was enacted in the Indian Parliament on 25th April 1960 and the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra were born on 1st May 1960. That makes Gujarat and Maharashtra 59 years old today.

On the day these two states were born Prafulla Chandra Dey turned 41. He had already made a debut in the world of film music in the ’40s with the movie “Tamanna” which had music by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and had a hit duet with Suraiya “Jago Aayee Usha Ponchi Boley Jago”. From then on he made his way into the hearts of music lovers across the country and sang in many Indian langauges – Bhojpuri,Magadhi, Maithili, Ounjabi, Assamese, Odia, Konkani, Sindhi, Gujarati, Marathi, Konkani, Malayalam and Nepali in addition to Hindi and Bengali.

He was trained in singing initially by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and Ustaad Dabir Khan. He was credited with the success of Indian Classical Movies in Indian commercial movies. How can anyone forget the Raga-based songs “Sur na saje kya gaaun maain” or “Kaun aaya mere mann ke dwaare payal ki jhankar liye”. But his “Aao twist karien” and “ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo” were equally popular. He might have sung his first duet “subah ki pehli kiran” with Kishore Kumar in 1952 but their association on “ek chatur naar karke shingaar” is unforgettable. He has shared the recording studio with all the major singers of the time till the ’90s haing sung under the baton of most of India’s music directors beginning with K.C. Dey in “Tamanna” in 1942 to Shamir Tandon in 2006- that last song of Prafulla Chandra Dey a.k.a Manna Dey has been posted on the blog Duniya Waalon Ko Nahin Kuchh Bhi Khabar. Almost 102 music directors.

Now coming to the Blog Ten Year Challenge the songs that were posted on the 1st of May 2009 were:-
(1) Daa dir daaraa.. meri laadli(Andaaz)(1949) it had 2 comments and the movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(2) Ghadi Ghadi Mora Dil Dhadke (Madhumati)(1958) had 7 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(3) Masti mein chhed ke taraana koyi dil ka (Haqeeqat)(1964) had 4 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED
(4) Naach meri jaan fataafaat (Main Sundar Hoon)(1971) had 11 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!!
(5) Do kadam tum bhi chalo (Ek Haseena Do Deewaane)(1972) had 6 songs with a multiple version song of which 2 are posted. (the sad Mukesh solo version is not yet posted)
(6) Haan pehli baar ek ladki mera haath pakad kar (Aur Kaun)(1979) had 12 comments and 1 out of 4 songs of this movie has been posted

The song with this post is from the 1972 romantic movie “Ek Haseena Do Diwane” which was produced by RG Films Kantibhai Zaveri and directed by S.M. Abbas. the movie had Jeetendra and Babita in the lead with Vinod Khanna as the villain. Om Prakash, Nirupa Roy, Shammi- played the elders and Johnny Walker headed a large supporting cast. The movie’s story in a nutshell as given by wikipedia-
Amar, the Nainital-based, orthodox and traditional person, obtains a degree in Engineering and re-locates to Bombay for employment. After doing so, he decides to assist his friend, Prakash, woo a wealthy and educated woman, Neeta but ends up falling in love and marrying her himself much to the chagrin of her father. Shortly after the marriage, he takes her to visit his widowed-schoolteacher mother, but she has gone on an outing. They return, and shortly thereafter arguments ensue, which escalate to such an extent that Amar assaults her, compelling her to return to her parents’ home. When she insists on a divorce – Amar refuses until and unless she lives with him for 15 days in order to create a false scenario of a happy marriage for his mother.

The song with today’s post is sung by Johnny Walker in the movie with two unknown ladies pestering him. it was a song I loved the instant I saw it. it has interlude music lifted from “Rattan”, “Pyaasa” and “Badi Behan” to add the comic element. It is written by Qamar Jalalabadi and Kalyanji Anandji were the music composers. The song brings out the full range that Manna Da was capable of.

Here I must confess that had I not attended the R.M.I.M last month i would have forgotten that Manna Dey would have turned 100 today if he had been there. Thinking of Manna Dey ……….

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 83 # Remembering Feroz Khan#
—————————————————————————–——

Welcome all to this post of today, where, once again, I am taking you back to a song from the Seventies from a movie which is part of ‘nostalgia’ of my growing years.

In this blog we fondly discuss about ‘songs which bring back memories’. Many of my posts would fall into this ‘category’ as I have tried to share them with the memories of my childhood years and growing years thereafter.

During the ‘blog’s ten thousandth song –milestone’ I had written a post here and mentioned about few songs which for me bring back memories of my childhood and /or growing years.
At that time, I had listed many ‘prominent songs’ for me falling in ‘songs that brings back memories’ category. I had also noted that in future I may come with a second list of such songs which I get reminded time to time due to the connected memories of those years and they surface from vague and dormant memories.

Recently when I was going through this ‘first list’ of mine and noting down the songs which are yet to make it to the blog, I noticed that now very few songs from this list of mine are yet to be posted on the blog. One of these songs is the song being covered today.

And the reason for posting this song today is, it is picturised on actor Feroz Khan whom we fondly remember today on his tenth ‘Remembrance Day’.
(This song also has a female version which is picturised on actress Rekha).

Feroz Khan (25 September 1939 – 27 April 2009), born Zulfikar Ali Shah Khan, was born in Bangalore and he also breath his last in the city of Bangalore on 27th April 2009.

He came to Mumbai (Bombay then) and made his debut in Hindi movies with the movie ‘Didi’ in 1960. Initially he got smaller roles or roles in the second lead. After completing almost a decade in the Hindi Film Industry he ventured into production and direction with the movie ‘Apraadh-1972’.

Though I have not watched many of his movies, but whatever movies I had watched of him have left an indelible impression on my mind since my childhood.

And whenever the Hindi movies of the seventies will be discussed Feroz Khan’s name is going to be surely there. Because he has a special place carved for him in the midst of the so many actors of that decade and his ‘aura’ is something that cannot be forgotten by the ‘fans of the seventies’.

I never forgot the movie ‘Khotey Sikkey-1974’ which I must have watched with my elders earlier and later may be on TV. And for me it is this movie which I remembered most associated with his name. I had also shared a song from this movie when I joined this blog as a lyrics contributor.

Then I remember watching ‘Nagin-1976’, ‘Shankar Shambhu-1976’, ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine-1976’, ‘Kabeela-1976’ and ‘Khoon Aur Paani-1981’ which I clearly remember of watching with my brothers and cousins may be in vacations. I think we also watched ‘Kaala Sona-1975’ and ‘Chunaoti-1979-80’ later, but I don’t remember it now.

‘Qurbaani-1980’ was a big hit in those years and all family watched it together.

Later I watched ‘Safar-191’, ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan-1970’ on TV. ‘Dharmatma-1975’ with friends on VCR (during the VCR days).
In between these years, around 1986-87 I watched ‘Aarzoo-1965’ in theatres in its re-re-released in end eighties.

After that I watched ‘Yalgaar-1992’ and ‘Dayaawan-1988’ in parts (on TV).

I watched ‘Apradh-1972’ again in 2008-2009 by buying its VCD because it had one my favourite songs in it i.e. ‘tum miley pyaar se’.

However I am yet watch his ‘Upaasna-1967’ and ‘Mela-1971’ which I think I should watch sometime in the future.

I will not go into more details about him and thus I will come to the today’s song thanking Feroz Khan for all the entertainment and those lovely memories of his movies he has given to us. His ‘cow boy’ image and specially his ‘dialogue deliveries’ riding on a horse 🙂 are his special features that I am always reminded of with his ‘steering eyes’:) (or may be, because of his image in my mind I am thinking that he might have spent more time sitting on the Horse’s back going by nature of roles he played in the majority of the movies) 🙂

Today’s movie ‘Kabeela-1976’ was directed by Bolu Khosla for ‘Khosla Enterprises, Bombay’. It was a ‘costume drama’ movie. Bolu Khosla was also the producer of this movie.

It had Feroz Khan, Rekha, Kamini Kaushal, Imtiaz, Premnath, V. Gopal, Sudhir, Shyam Kumar, Manju Bansal, Dhoomal, Surendranath, Heeralal, Habib, Baby Soniya, Darshan, Sharad Saxena and others. Bindu and Trilok Kapoor make a Special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by A.K. Agarwal. Screenplay was written by Jayant Dharmadhikari. Akhtar Romani wrote the dialogues of this movie and editing was done by Waman Bhonsle.

This movie had four songs, including one multiple version song (which is being posted today). All its songs were written by Farooque Qaisar and composed to music by Kalyanji-Anandji. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mukesh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.10.1976.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie which since years has been in my memory and it is a ‘catchy’ composition too. This song is in two versions male and female and sung respectively by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

I could not find a separate video for the female version, but we have audio version for our listening pleasure. The female version is picturised on Rekha and male version is picturised on Feroz Khan and who we can see performing in his ‘dynamic-dashing’:) style on this song.

By the way this song ranked at number twenty-five in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1977’.
With this song ‘Kabeela-1976 (or Qabeela-1976’) makes a debut on the blog !!

(I also had the opportunity to introduce ‘Shankar -Shambhu-1976’ on the blog. ‘Naagin-1976’ – I had already shared a song.
And as noted earlier I think this year ‘1976’ had the most impact on my mind relating to songs and movies of that year when I was around 8 years old 🙂 )

Let us enjoy today’s song now.

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Not all journeys have a pre-determined destination.

Sometimes a traveler sets off on a journey, purely with the intention of travel. For how long, which specific places he will travel to, where he will stop, who and what he will encounter…these are all unknown.

All he knows is that he has the desire to travel – and will travel for as long as he has such desire, and the ability to travel.

And it is just as well that he travels without a set destination or time-frame. That would take away from the enjoyment of the journey itself. It is not that the travel is meaningless – it certainly has a purpose. Just that the purpose is to enjoy the journey, not to keep a destination or time-frame in focus.

I’d like to think this blog is one such journey – and Atul is this traveler.

Atul has himself said many times, when he posted his first song on this blog on the 19th of July 2008, he had no idea what it would go on to become. As a music lover, all he wanted was to have a blog of his own. A place where he could post songs of his choice and share his taste with other music lovers. Pretty simple, isn’t it?

At that time, he would’ve been happy if he could have got to a 1000 songs on the blog. That would have been huge.
2000? Amazing!
5000? Are you CRAZY?
10000? Ab bas bhi karo yaar, kuchh zyaada hi ho gaya

But this traveler never stopped travelling. One step at a time, he kept walking. The milestones kept passing by. He acknowledged them – but never stopped. Sort of like “nadiya chale chale re dhaara, chanda chale chale re taara, tumko chalna hoga, tumko chalna hoga”.

Along the way, he met fellow-travellers and became friends with them. They joined him on his journey, so he had company. But he never stopped.

Yes, he might have occasionally slowed down, but the most important thing is – he never stopped.

And that is the only reason we can today celebrate this mega-milestone.

The biggest to date.

15000.

Yes, that’s a thousand songs, fifteen times over.

Mind-boggling.

But, to me, that’s not the whole story.

If you take a flight from Moscow to Vladivostok, it takes about 8 ½ hours.
The Trans Siberian Express train takes about a week.

If I had the time, I know how I’d like to travel.
I’d like to breathe in every moment of the travel – not rush it.

This blog has not rushed through these 15000 songs mindlessly, just for the purpose of statistics. If it had done so, it could’ve reached this milestone much earlier.

No, that was not the idea of this blog at all. Ever.

As I said earlier, Atul’s idea was to share songs with other music-lovers. To have these songs introduced on the blog, discussed in detail with appropriate credits to artistes, with a video/audio and full lyrics.

That was – and continues to be – the format for every single song from day one.

And when you have a format of this type, you want every song to have its own space and time. If you post 20 songs on one day, are you doing justice to each individual song? Won’t it just get lost in the crowd?

So the pace of this blog recognizes this important aspect of music appreciation – don’t overload.

So the bigger story (for me at least) is HOW we have got to 15000.

One song at a time, ranging from 1 to about 7 songs a day (7 itself is a high number), we have come this far over TEN years and NINE months. Yes, we are in our 129th month now. And the posting has not been sporadic – it has been EVERY SINGLE DAY (except for very few days when there’s been no posting).

THAT, for me, is truly astounding.

For ONE person to have THIS level of dedication, commitment and discipline, despite all sorts of constraints along the way – THAT to me is mind-boggling.

Yes, we guest posters have joined on the journey, and posted from time to time. (I’m saying this a bit hesitatingly given my own limited contribution in the last year). But, as Sudhirji pointed out in a recent post, Atul’s posts are 3 times more than all our guest posts put together. That shows the sheer weight-lifting he does.

And mind you, this is just the number of posts. There’s so much more on the blog- the various statistics, by movie, by year, by artiste and so on. And anniversary dates. Atul has truly built a repository for the ages.

That brings me to my next point.

The repository.

It is not that songs aren’t available on the net. Of course they are. There are songs all over the place.

But this blog is different. It doesn’t treat a song as just a song. There’s a narrative about it, a background wherever possible. About the film, the artistes involved. And Atul is a stickler for accuracy, so he does his level best to get the facts and lyrics 100% accurate. It’s not easy with some old songs where the audio itself isn’t clear – but he makes a genuine effort. And that is because of the type of person he is – no shortcuts, no compromises.

All of this means that the reader gets as accurate a source as possible.

Then consider the songs themselves.

Some of these songs are rare songs, which were not even available earlier on the net. Some others were available, but with limited detail. When these songs were made available here, the blog tried to give the song, and its artistes, full respect.

This is what makes this blog a treasure house, a repository for generations.

While on this point, I think I must mention fellow travelers (we call them Atulites) who have contributed greatly to enriching this blog.

Atul will be the first person to admit that his own knowledge of songs and artistes would never have been enough to make the blog what it is today. This is nothing to be ashamed of. All of us know more about some songs and eras, and less about others.

But we thankfully have some “maharathis” (they know who they are, so I won’t name them 🙂 ) who, between them are an ocean of knowledge, and like walking encyclopedias. Their contribution, whether through posts or through comments, is truly outstanding. They have enriched this blog so much, taking it to a different level altogether.

So when we talk of team effort, this is a perfect example of it.

This brings me to my next point of awe.

If this blog had been a commercial venture, I can understand a business posting songs every day, to maximize its views, and earn revenue as a result, through advertising or other means.

But Atul has been doing this as a labour of love. It started as that, in 2008 – and continues to this day with the same intent.

So a labour of love, posting songs every single day, for 129 months at a stretch, to the level of detail and accuracy that this blog has – just pause for a moment to let that sink in.

Pause.

So while we celebrate the 15000 milestone, I request everyone to try to appreciate the true significance of it.

It’s not just the number – it’s the weight of the love and effort that has gone into it. It’s like 15000 kg of love and effort.

Along the way, this blog has done something else too. Possibly unintended initially, but as “Blog Ke Side-Effects” 🙂 , it has brought us Atulites together. Many of us have met each other, we now have a whatsapp group, all thanks to the blog, and Atul.

For me, personally, it has been a very enriching journey. I’ve been fortunate to have been involved right from day one – and along the way I’ve got to know some wonderful people with an amazing level of knowledge about HFM. I’ve got to know SO many songs only through this blog.

I really can’t thank Atul enough for all this.

So even if my participation has been very limited of late, this blog, and everyone associated with it, will always have a very special place in my heart.

And on this occasion, I can only wish that the journey goes on and on as we head towards the next target of 15921. 🙂

A line that comes to mind is “apni pyaar ki gaadi chalti rahe, apni pyaar ki gaadi chalti rahe”. 🙂

Now onto the song for today.

I must admit it wasn’t easy for me to decide on a song for this occasion.

For one, not only has the blog already got 15000 songs, but even the songs still to be posted are mostly relatively new songs ( which I barely know), or lesser-known songs of a much earlier era than mine.

This makes my task somewhat difficult.

A song I had in mind got cancelled out because it had already been posted, so I had to renew my efforts.

But one thing. I did have an idea of the type of song I wanted to post.

I wanted a fun, lively song. After all it is a celebratory occasion, so why not a fun song?

The lyrics didn’t really matter too much, as long as it was a jhakkaas song. 🙂

While looking for random songs, I tend to think of the 1970s as my first choice of decade. The main reason for this is, it is the decade I grew up in – and there’s always a chance I’ll come across a song that I heard in my childhood, and that still happens to not be posted. This has happened on a few occasions with me.

I’ll be the first to admit that the 1970s songs signaled the end of what is popularly known as the golden era of music. By the time the 1970s came along, audience tastes had changed. Not just in India, but around the world. The hippie culture had come in, there was a sense of wanting to break away from the established order of things.

It was only natural that India too would be affected by this trend. Films are a good reflection of society – and films of the 1970s are markedly different from those of an earlier era.

Music, as a very important component of Indian films, also reflected this.

And no one exemplified this better than RD Burman.

RD (or Pancham as he was popularly known) was a trend-setter. Hugely gifted, he experimented a lot, with instruments, tunes and sounds. The audience, already ripe for change, embraced RD’s style wholeheartedly and made him a huge success.

It was not that RD could not compose traditional tunes – he could, and he did. But he also made a deliberate effort to invent his own style, to distinguish himself from his legendary father’s style.

I personally think music, like everything else, evolves. We need to recognize that times keep changing – and music needs an audience too. So if the audience is changing, why wouldn’t music change too?

So, as Tennyson said, “the old order changeth, yielding place to new”.

The song I have picked today is from my schoolboy days. I had heard it a few times then – we used to sing it in school. But somehow I never heard it after that, and had even forgotten all about it.

Recently I came across it again – and was surprised to find it hadn’t been posted yet.

Initially I was thinking of keeping it for an RD occasion, seeing as it has such an RD stamp about it – but then I guess this occasion is as good as any.

If we are celebrating 15000 songs on this blog, and Atul is the architect of it AND is also a 1970s schoolboy, why not a song that he might have heard in those days too?

Dil to maane na….meri jaan, meri jaan aa aa aa aa

Vintage RD & Asha Bhosle.

Ever since this song has come back into my life, I’ve enjoyed listening to it.

I hope you enjoy it too. Jhakkaas enough for you? 🙂

Congratulations to all of us, travelers on this journey, for the 15000-milestone.

And a special thanks to Atul for bringing us all together.

Looking forward to milestone 15921. 🙂

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 29
————————————————

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Dil Ka Nazraana Le O Dildaar Le” – this was the debut post of the 1973 movie “Chalaak” which was directed by someone called RK Banerjee. All these years I had only heard this song. Thanks to the ongoing ten-year challenge series I landed on the post of the song which had been popular in the 70s and is still heard on Vividh Bharti (All India Radio), I learnt that it was a Kiran Kumar – Radha Saluja song, which movie etc.

I landed on that post because of this “Mann Gaaye Wo Taraana“. Now this is another song that was popular on the radio in those days and is still heard sometimes on radio. I learnt that this is a piano song with Alka at the piano and Kiran Kumar in a jeep.

Radha Saluja and Alka are lost to followers of Bollywood and Kiran Kumar has turned to doing character roles or supporting roles since 1988 when we saw him in Rakesh Roshan’s “Khudgarz”. The rest of the cast of this movie comprised of Bhram Bharadwaj, Ajit, Danny, Lalita Kumari, P Jairaj, Gautam Sareen (in friendly appearances) alongwith Keshto Mukherjee, Jayshree T, Jagdish Raj etc. The synopsis of the movie as given on IMDB is

Monica Kapoor (Radha Saluja) lives a wealthy lifestyle in London, England. When she hears that her estranged brother, Kishan (Bhram Bharadwaj), has been killed while traveling in a train, she returns home to India and asks his much younger and drop dead gorgeous widow, Shobha (Alka), to move out so that she could sell the house, pick up the cash, return to London and get married to her boyfriend, Manoj (Danny). She does get to sell the house and compels Shobha to move in with Kishan’s friend, Amar (Kiran Kumar), but Manoj steals the cash and disappears. Humbled by this incident, Monica also moves in with Amar and Shobha, as well as Amar’s younger brother, Chickoo, and ends up falling in love with Amar. She decides to marry him at the Registrar’s Office. When he does not show, she returns home and finds him getting intimate with Shobha. What Monica does not know is that Amar is not who he claims to be but is, in fact, an escaped convict, who is determined to marry Shobha and get her to reveal the secret location of some gold bars.

Looks like it was a typical masaala film (should see it when I get some time).

There were 6 posts on 17th of April 2009:

Koi Humdum Na Raha

Tum Apni Saheli Ko

Raina Beeti Jaaye

Mann Gaaye Wo Taraana

Tera Mera Saath Rahe

Rootha Hai To Manaa Lenge

Of these ‘Jhumroo’, ‘Amar Prem’ and ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ have all their songs on the blog that means these movies have been YYIIPPEEEED! ‘Samaaj Ko Badal Daalo’ has three songs left and ‘Saudaagar’ has two left. ‘Chalaak’ has only two songs on the blog. Here is the third. It is written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Ganesh is the music director. It has playback by Asha Bhonsle.

 

Song – Yahaan Kaun Hai Jo Tera Hai  (Chaalaak) (1973) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Ganesh

Atul Song-A-Day 15K Song Milestone Celebrations – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this special occasion where we are now celebrating Fifteen thousand song-posts on the blog!!!  My heartiest congratulations to Atul ji, Sudhir ji and our respected senior and other team members on the blog and to all of our readers and well-wishers of this blog.

Well, my ‘love story’ (‘Prem Kahaani’, pehle ‘affair’ likhnewaala tha, phir ‘relationship’, phir thhik karke ‘love story’ likha  🙂 ) with this blog started around 2009 and it was because of Sahir Saab’s song ‘Dil Karta O Yaara Dildaara Mera Dil Karta’ (which I was looking because it was in my memory and nostalgic for me). So, thanks are very much due to Sahir Saab and I thank him for that. (I am sure he is accepting it there 🙂 )

My first comment was also on a song penned by Sahir Saab ‘Kashti Ka Khamosh Safar Hai’ – that was in 2009. Still, it took me three years more to become a contributor on this blog which happened in 2012.

How much I loved this blog and how HFM was my hobby earlier and became a passion later, and how HFM and this blog became an important part of my life thereafter, has been mentioned by me in few of my other posts on the blog. So, I will not go into more details on that. Rather I would like to write what I have not said earlier.

I came into writing when I was studying into eighth standard and my first article was published from a district newspaper from Akola then. It was an article about Chetan Chauhan when he was dropped from the playing side of India in test cricket. After that few more articles, all on cricket, were published in the same newspaper that time. Simultaneously after that I was approaching tenth standard and the board examinations, but still cricket was always on top in my mind. I did send few articles to the popular magazines in circulation then, but they were returned with some suggestions to me and that gave me a learning on how to plan and arrange the articles.

However, everything changed after I passed out matriculation and joined vocational subjects in eleventh instead of the subjects I liked most i.e. ‘Arts’. I have mentioned that journey on the blog in this article here. And during these two years I was more on movies and cricket and so as expected I failed in the examination. After that I joined a construction company and start working there and continued to working after that.

Now between all these years i.e. 1985 to 2009 I was working and continuing with my hobby of collecting cassettes, watching movies, listening music. And that was the biggest recreation and motivation for me during all those years. It so happened in 2009 that my close friends working in the same company with me in Kachchh but in different units/departments, push me to take up writing and that is how I started my blog and after that my younger daughter who used to write regularly became a part of that blog.

So finally the circle came to round and life brought me back to my passion of writing after a gap of almost twenty-seven years. And when I came into contact with this blog and started sending my contribution for lyrics earlier in 2012 I thought to give a try for writing articles and my first article appeared on the blog in 2013.

When I became a lyric contributor to the blog, that was my ‘new birth’ and at that point, life started again for me with new purpose, new energy, inspiration and motivation. And all these factors – purpose, energy, inspiration, motivation, celebration, and nostalgia keep growing further as my journey with the blog has been continued and still going …

Many childhood memories of watching movies, of songs from movies of yesteryears, keep surfacing and it was like one memory triggering other memory and bringing close to its related vague memories of those beautiful years. I started getting connected to many incidences which were lying dormant in my memory or which I had forgotten. And, I must say that since coming into the contact with the blog and specially after having HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) when I started sharing song posts of songs with the seventies, I had been transformed to that era only when my age was growing between eight to fifteen years.

In my circles whenever someone asks my age, I always used to tell them that ‘I am only seventeen years old and do not to grow more than that’. But the blog has reduced my age between eight-fifteen and I keep shuffling in that ‘age-era’ only i.e. if I considered up to 1983. And if I considered up to 1980 then my age is twelve years only.

I think I have also mentioned this earlier that finding this blog and being a part of this was a feeling like ‘this was the destination of my life’ and ‘all these years of life I was alive for this purpose only’. Always feeling fortunate and blessed to be a part of this journey and a member of this team …

Meeting some of the team members and seniors in the group during the ‘gang-outs’ has given many unforgettable memories and those are the most cherished moments of my life. And it is going to continue in future too 🙂 . The joy from discussions during such meetings and sharing of thoughts also cannot be expressed in words. And most importantly during such meetings I also got a chance to meet many respected and dedicated ‘like-minded peoples’ who in their own capacity are not less than a ‘encyclopaedia’ about yesteryears Hindi films and Hindi film music.

Thanking again to Atul ji and all other members and this wonderful blog. . . I am trying to express my feelings in the following ‘poem’;

उन यादों को, उन किस्सों को,
उस कहानी को,
शायद इसी दिन के लिए संभाला था
मन गुंजन करता ये भंवर
शायद इसी पल के लिए बेताब था

 दिल का ये भंवर
नादान ही तो था
कुंज कुंज करता गुंजन
भीतर भीतर बेचैन था
मिले जो आप तो ये चहकने लगा
सुरीली यादें बिखेरने लगा
बचपन फिर से मुस्काया
जवानी ने जैसे ली अंगडाई
एक कहानी को मंजिल मिली
कुछ यादों को भूली हुयी तारीख मिली
कुछ किस्सों को एक पड़ाव मिला
तन्हाई को एक महफ़िल मिली
साथी नए नए मिले
सुरीले सफ़र का कारवां मिला

 

And let us now enjoy the song with a vintage Kishore voice from the 1971 movie ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’. (Yes, the year of this movie is to be corrected as ‘1971’ on the blog and for the two posts already posted on the blog. Though in the second post one tag ‘songs of’ is correct i.e. ‘songs of 1971’)

‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ was directed by Randhir Kapoor for R.K. Films, Bombay. This was Randhir Kapoor’s first movie too and he was introduced or launched in style with also given direction of this movie. It was produced by Raj Kapoor.

It had Prithviraj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Babita, Narendranath, Roopesh Kumar, Achala Sachdev, David, Tiwari, Iftekhar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Vishwa Mehra, Sarita, Aarti, Asha Chandra, Shri Ram Shastri, Mansaram, Sumita Khurana, Pardesi, Uma Dutt, Rashid Khan, Mandhir Siyal, Prakash Mishra, Ranveer Raj, Ghanshyam Rohida and others.

Story, Screenplay and Dialogues of this movie were written by Virendra Sinha. Editing of this movie was done by S.R. Kabre. It was passed by Censor Board on 11.11.1971.

This movie has six songs penned by three lyricists – Hasrat Jaipuri (two songs), Neeraj (three songs) and Shaily Shailendra (one song). Music for this movie is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mukesh, and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

I think I have watched some part of this movie or may be the whole movie on TV or somewhere else, but I do not remember it now except I remember vaguely about its storyline. Knowledgeable readers may kindly throw more light on this movie and its songs please.

Two songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog earlier. And the today’s song is the third song of this movie being presented on the blog on the special occasion of ‘Blog’s 15k Songs Festival’ 😊

Today is also the 97th birth anniversary of songwriter Hasrat Jaipuri.

Blog Day : 3912 Post No. : 14971

———————————————–
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 26
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day – the score card was six films, and six songs. The songs posted on that day are listed below.

 

Naino Me Pyaar Dole Sheroo 1957
Kaare Kaare Baadraa Bhaabhi 1957
Jab Baadal Lahraaya Chhoo Mantar 1956
Dil Pukaare Aare Aare Jewel Thief 1967
Tumhaari Nazar Kyun Khafa Ho Gayi Do Kaliyaan 1968
Har Haseen Cheez Ka Main Talabgaar Hoon Saudaagar 1973

 

Out of the six films, five films have since been Yippeee’d on the blog. I notice this interesting push for completing songs of a film. It seems that the preference is always to complete songs of films from 1950s and 1960s. Most of the time, when we are searching for a suitable selection for this Ten Years Challenge series, the films with songs pending are most likely to be not from 1950s and 1960s. I think it is a combination of preference for the melody and music of those two decades, plus the availability. On these two counts, the films from 1950s and 1960s would score the highest, and hence their quicker movement towards Yippeee status.

The film from this list, which still has songs remaining to be posted, belongs to 1973 – ‘Saudaagar’. When this film appeared in the theatres, the one surprising element was the lead pair – Amitabh Bachchan and Nutan, plus Padma Khanna of course. Once one got to know the storyline though, the choice would be rationalized. But at first sight, Nutan – a fairly senior lead actress by that time, paired opposite to an almost rank new comer, Amitabh Bachchan, at first raised some eyebrows. Nutan, having made her transition from child role (‘Hamaari Beti’, 1950) to lead actress roles with ‘Hum Log’ and ‘Nagina’ in 1951, had over two decades of career behind her. Amitabh, on the other hand, was just into the fifth year of his career. Having made a debut with the 1969 film ‘Saat Hindustani’, he was still seen as the Babu Moshai (‘Anand’, 1970), an actor in second lead type roles. No doubt, ‘Zanjeer’ also happened in 1973, and that put him on a fast track as an action hero. But when ‘Saudaagar’, and of course ‘Zanjeer’ were planned and were under production, the phenomenal succcess of the latter film was still into the future. At such a time, the casting of ‘Saudaagar’ surely surprised critics and audiences alike.

The film’s story is a sensitive portrayal of a love triangle, in which one side of the triangle is actually a pretense, nay a fraud, mounted by the male protagonist, for a vested interest, which is to finance his betrothal to his real love interest. It is a plain case of a dishonorable deception, which goes way beyond cheating and defrauding for money – it is a devious fraud on the heart and emotions of gullible and vulnerable widow. Moti (Amitabh) is a young trader in gur (jaggery made from the juice of date palms). Majubee (Nutan) is a relatively older widow, expert in making the jaggery from the date juice. The two have business relations, in that Moti collects the juices from the date palms, brings to Majubee, who makes jaggery from it, and Moti sells it in the market.

Phool Banu appears on the scene, and Moti falls head over heels for her. His efforts to gain a bride are thwarted by Phool Banu’s father, who demands a handsome meher amount for the marriage. Unable to procure the hefty amount demanded, Moti hatches a plan in his mind – he decides to get married to Majubee, and save money on the production process of gur, because he would not have to pay Majubee, once he becomes her husband. Majubee is shocked and surprised by the proposal, refuses at first, but then slowly gives in to the cajoling and pursuance by Moti. They get married. At the end of one season of gur making, Moti saves enough to pay the meher for his desired bride. He divorces Majubee, and immediately marries Phool Banu. Majubee is devastated, and completely broken, at being used such by this devious man, who has used her and defrauded her of her vulnerable honor in life.

But the story does not end here. As it turns out, Phool Banu has no inkling of the gur making proces. Her main interests in life are “Sajna Hai Mujhe Sajna Ke Liye“. Moti, unable to now supply good quality gur in the market, loses his reputation, and his business. The affluence is gone, the reputation is gone, and so is the dream of a happily-ever-after life with his beloved. And the story moves further. . . to be dealt with in another post later. 🙂

The film is produced by the house of Rajshree – Rajshree Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay. It is directed by Sudhendu Roy. Besides the three important stars already named, the impressive cast of actors includes Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V Gopal, CS Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadira, Ras Raj, Paritosh Choudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Rai, Jugnu, Chandu Allahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habeeba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, and Baby Shamina.

Geet Kosh lists seven songs for the film. All the songs are created by the lyricist – MD Ravindra Jain. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen, it is performed by Padma Khanna, as she is walking back home from the river banks, after having crossed it on a boat. Amitabh has seen her, and is following her from the boat itself. Of course Padma Khanna, i.e. Phool Banu, is very much aware that she is being followed by this lanky and handsome young man. So she is playing the siren’s role to the hilt. Introduces herself in the song, she tells her pursuer about herself and her youth, and clearly communicates that she is verily enjoying the attention she is getting from him. In a couple of close shots, Amitabh looks very much like a provoked predator, as he eyes this willing beauty dancing for his benefit.

A catchy song, and enticing words. . . both characters are hunters, laying veritable traps for each other. 🙂
