Rewind back – goodness – 46 years. This song is from 1971, and the dear melody that we all love is quite alive and well.

Two names that we remember, and honor today – Chitragupt and Kaifi Azmi. Today, it is the birth anniversary of Kaifi Azmi and it is the passing away remembrance day for Chitragupt.

Back in 1971, Chitragupt is passing through his silver anniversary in the tinsel town, and Kaifi Azmi is celebrating his 20th in the same industry.

Chitragupt, born in 1917, started his career with Hindi films in 1945-46. In 1971, his journey has thus far passed through about 130 films, and he has composed approximately 930 songs so far. Kaifi Azmi, born in 1919, started to write for Hindi films in 1951. In 1971, he has thus far written approximately 225 songs for about 50 films.

With such illustrious and prolific careers behind them, it is a wonder that these two stalwarts did not get together till 1970 – almost two decades and more, that both of them had been active in the industry. Their coming together film in 1970 is ‘Hamaara Adhikar’. Then, in 1971, both collaborated once again for creating the songs for ‘Saaz Aur Sanam’. And then, that’s it. These two are the only films, and a handful of songs that these two worked on together.

‘Saaz Aur Sanam’ is a production from the banner of Wadia Movietone and is directed by JBH Wadia. The list of actors reads like – Premendra, Rekha, Suresh Chatwal, Sapru, Purnima, Bhagwan, Asit Sen, Kirti Kumar, Panna Kapoor, Bismillah, Dalda, Rajni Bala, Renu, Brahmachari, Ratan Kumar, Hercules, Dayanand, and Arvind etc.

Premendra is a name that we encounter for the first time in the film ‘Deedaar’ of 1970. He appears in ‘Holi Aayee Re, again in 1970, then in two films in 1971 – ‘Duniya Kya Jaane’ and ‘Saaz Aur Sanam’. And then this name does not appear any more in the listings. Four films, and that’s it. Rekha, who has just made her debut, also in 1970 with the film ‘Saawan Bhadon’ (opposite to Navin Nischol), continues to be active in the Hindi film industry to date.

The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar. The song is performed on screen by Rekha. The two protagonists – Rekha and Premendra – are both in their night-wear. It is clearly a ‘roothna – manaana’ category of song. Premendra is the one who is doing the sulking, and Rekha is the one who is trying to appease him. the hints of playfulness and naughtiness that we would see more of in her subsequent films, are quite visible in this song. Plus the original analysis that Atul ji has once done – it takes about three and a half minutes to “appease” a “sulking” hero or heroine, as the case may be. 🙂

A heartfelt salute to Chitragupt and to Kaifi Azmi on this day today. And a dearly wonderful song to celebrate. Listen and enjoy.

phoolon ke rang se
dil ki kalam se
tujh ko likhi roz paati

Nirantar Neeraj’ – the name of a stage program that has been created by the Ibaadat group, on the life and works of this distinguished poet of this sub continent. [Ed Note: Ibaadat Foundation (www.ibaadatindia.org) is a non-profit group of lovers of poetry and film music, who conduct regular stage shows in various cities. Each of their programs is focused on an eminent poet. ‘Nirantar Neeraj’ was first staged in Delhi, in September 2014.] When I read the title of the, it enamoured me so much. A feeling of profundity follows the sound of this title.

Gopaldas Saxena ‘Neeraj’, turns 92 today. We all wish for him continued – ‘nirantar’ – time of good health, comfort and above all, creative passions.

Neeraj has had a patchy relationship with the Hindi film industry. But despite that, the gems that have come from this partnership are simply too great to be overlooked. He made his debut in the film world with the film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965). The director of this film, R Chandra, an earlier acquaintance of Neeraj, was highly influenced by his famous poem “Kaarwan Guzar Gaya Gubaar Dekhte Rahe”. His vision for the film was to present the essence of this poem as the theme of the film. How successful he was in translating this theme into the film is a matter of judgment. The film did not do well at the box office. However, its songs went on to become very famous and popular – “Dekhti Hi Raho Aaj Darpan Na Tum”, “Aaj Ki Raat Badi Shokh Badi Natkhat Hai”, “Mero Saiyyaan Gulabia Ko Phool”, and of course the theme song.

In terms of timeline, his first songs appeared in the film ‘Cha Cha Cha’ which was released in 1964. The two songs in the voice of Rafi Sb, and composed by Iqbal Qureshi, have stood the test of time – “Subah Na Aayi, Shaam Na Aayi” and “Wo Hum Na The Wo Tum Na The”. Till this day, when these song are heard, one is struck by the sheer poetic content.

In 1965, came another film which, by industry standards, also did not do too well on the box office. However, its song – well that is another story. The film is “Tu Hi Meri Zindagi” – a film about Goa’s struggle for independence from Portuguese rule. The film has not stayed in the collective memory of the filmgoers. Maybe, the songs even were not very popular. But the songs, created in partnership with the music director Rono Deb Mukherjee, themselves are a shining gems, each one of them. Listen to “Ye Kaun Thak Ke So Raha Hai Gulmohar Ki Chhaon Mein”; or “Mere Watan Ka Hai Tu Wo Ratan” (happy version); or “Aadam Ka Lahu”; or “Mere Himaalay Ke Paasbaanon”.

Coming to work with Shankar Jaikishan for the film ‘Kanyadaan’ (1968), the initial working relationship was quite ‘explosive’, especially with Shankar. S-J requested for a love song, and Neeraj returned to them with a poem that spanned three handwritten pages. Shankar was ‘snappy’, but then decided to work with the poet. A very hard give and take had to happen to convert this poem into a film song of three minutes. But the end result of this was the fabulous love song that broke all broadcasting records in that year – “Likhe Jo Khat Tujhe. . .”.

Neeraj used to teach at the Dharam Samaj College in Aligarh. In 1970, he got an invitation from Dev Anand to come to Bombay and stay for a week at his expenses. Dev Anand was preparing for ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970). SD Burman was very cautious, and not confident that Neeraj would assimilate well into his music, with predefined situations and pre-prepared tunes. When Neeraj arrived in Bombay, Dev Sb immediately took him to meet Burmam Da. Dada already had a tune in mind, and wanted lyrics set to the tune and the situation. He explained that a girl sees her beau at a party in the company of another lady, and the circumstances are such that the beau is not recognizing her. The song should be of a complaint, frustration, depression, sarcasm – all this Burman Da piled on to Neeraj. So much that even Neeraj himself became hesitant and unsure. To top it, Burman Da also informed that the song has to start with the words “Rangeela Re”. Neeraj returned from the meeting, not sure about his own nerve. He mentioned this to Dev, and Dev said, you have a week to make it happen. If it does not happen, then no problem, you are still my guest for a week in Bombay.

In his hotel room, Neeraj worked the night, and next morning met again with Dev Anand to tell him he has something he would like to show to Burman Da. They immediately drove down to the latter’s residence. Neeraj handed him the paper with the lyrics he had written for the tune and for the situation. One look at the lyrics, and Burman Da said to Dev Anand – you may leave now, the two of us have work to do.

This started a partnership that Neeraj says he really enjoyed in the industry. After ‘Prem Pujari’ they went on to work together on such memorable films as ‘Gambler’ (1971), ‘Sharmeeli’ (1971), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971) and ‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973). A scan through the song lists of these films is enough to send a shiver down the spine.

The other close partnership that he enjoyed working with was Shankar Jaikishan. After ‘Kanyadaan’, their partnership continued with ‘Duniya’ (1968) – “Ye Dharti Hindustan Ki”; ‘Chanda Aur Bijli’ (1969) – “Kaal Ka Pahiya Ghoome Bhaiya”; ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) – “Ae Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo” (1970); ‘Pehchaan’ (1970) – “Bas Yahi Apradh Main Har Baar Karta Hoon”; ‘Umang’ (1970); ‘Ek Naari Ek Brahmchari” (1971); ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971) – “Tik Tik. . . Chalti Jaaye Ghadi”; ‘Laal Pathar’ (1971) – “Sooni Sooni Saans Ki Sitar Par”; ‘Patanga’ (1971) – “Jhoom Ke Ga Yun Aaj Mere Dil”; and some more.
There is an interesting note that Neeraj shares about the song “Ae Bhai. . .”. When this song was presented to S-J, Shankar’s mood was sitched off – such bland and blank verses, he could not get himself to compose a tune for this song. The song finally turned out after Neeraj and Shankar both worked together for the composition.

Working closely with some of the best and the most successful music directors in the industry, turned out to be both a blessing and a curse. Blessing that we see a heady proliferation of magical songs created by Neeraj together with these music directors, in the period from 1965 to about 1972. And then there is a tapering down of this creative streak. In Neeraj’s own words, he got caught in a cycle of near depression, when in quick succession his music director partners departed – first Roshan in 1967, then Jaikishan in 1971 and finally SD Burman in 1973. These departures created a vacuum in his life that was depressing enough for him to pack his bags and move back to Aligarh and to academics.

He continued to work sporadically, but not many people from Bombay called upon him any more. Dev Anand and Vijay Anand were the only film persona who continued to call upon Neeraj to pen songs for them. Neeraj was associated with Dev and Navketan right till the film ‘Chargesheet’ which released in 2011, and Dev Anand playing the lead at 82. 🙂

At 92, Neeraj currently is the chancellor of the Mangalayatan University in Aligarh. At 92, he has health limitations. But the poet in him is still very active. A recent couplet from him

ab to mazhab bhi koi chalaaya jaaye
ke insaan ko insaan banaaya jaaye
aag behti hai ganga mein jehlum mein bhi
tum bataao kahaan jaa ke nahaaya jaaye

For today’s song I turn to the film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ from 1971. This song is a light hearted dance song which is performed by Hema Malini on the screen, inside the screen that we watch. Meaning that the situation is the Dev Anand and Mumtaz are on a ‘date’ at a village ‘mela’ (i.e. before they are married in the film), and they get into a tent cinema to watch a film. And this song is playing in the film that they are watching. So this maybe a unique situation wherein a complete song is performed on the screen that is being watched by the actors we are watching on our screen.

From the looks of it, Dev Anand is hugely enamoured by the actress on the screen, much to the chagrin of Mumtaz, whose pleasure of the evening suddenly evaporates, as she looks at Dev Anand watching Hema Malini with fascination. 🙂

Interesting to hear such light hearted verses coming from Neeraj. But you know, that is not an isolated incident. Sample some of his other songs – “Sunday Ko Pyaar Hua, Monday Iqraar Hua” from ‘Kanyadaan’, “Darr Lage To Gaana Ga” from ‘Yaar Mera’ (1971) and “Dheere Se Jaana Khatiyan Mein” from ‘Chhupa Rustom’ (1973).

But this song, is still so very special. Note the huge variation in the metre of different parts of lyrics. And kudos to Burman Da to have seamlessly knitted together the song with such a variety of lengths of singing lines. Quite a masterpiece it is.

And then once again, heartful wishes to Neeraj ji – continue ‘nirantar‘.

[Ed Note: Part of the material for this write up is adapted from an interview with Neeraj published in the Hindu of May 21, 2015.]

[Ed Note: Although the video clip is quite adequate in itself, the audio link is also presented, not for the sound of the song, but for the image that is accompanying it. The image shows Asha Bhosle standing next to a seated Kersi Lord – musician and instrumentalist par excellence. Kersi had a very close working relationship with SD Burman. At first I wondered why someone has created this audio post this way. But then when I listened to this song again, it was clear. I suggest the readers also to listen to this song closely, and more than once if possible. There are many little special sound effects and variations in the instrumentation, that make this song really so magical. That is all Kersi Lord’s handiwork. 🙂 ]

“Ek din Aadhi Raat”(1971), an obscure “Social” movie was directed by Kamal Sharma for Mahesh Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Kumkum, Sujeet Kumar, Aruna Irani, Asit Sen, Praveen Paul, Meenakshi, Mohan Choti, Baldev Mehta, Master Dev Anand, Niraml Anand etc, with guest appearances by Manmohan, Jagdev and Lata Sinha.

One song from this movie has ben covered in the past.

Today (25 december 2017) is Christmas. Those who are kids and kids at heart think of Santa Claus the moment Chrishmas is mentioned. And he lives in North Pole.

If you live in North of India (like I do), it is extremely cold and foggy all over. So we are getting North pole like weather without needing to go there and get an idea of the place where Santa Claus resides. 🙂

Here is a Happy Chrishmas song from “Ek din Aadhi Raat”(1971) which is a party song about Christmas. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

I am unable to identify the lip syncer of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

I take this opportunity to wish Merry Chrishmas to all.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 57 #
———————————————–—————-

In a few of my earlier posts on the blog, I have discussed how some songs become part of our memories and keep haunting us from time to time, either for some reasons or sometimes without any reasons.

Some songs bring back memories and some just bring back feeling of nostalgia. There are some songs that stay with us because they are part of our growing years.

We keep looking for such separated at childhood songs for our listening pleasure and/or nostalgia till we manage to locate them.

Today’s song is one such song which hadstayed in my memory over the years and and one that I was looking for since 1985-86 when I started collecting cassettes of songs.

This song was still there in my memory and had continued to stay undetected even two decades later when I discovered this blog.

It was only when I got my first copy of HFGK of the decade 1971-1980 (i.e. Vol-V) that I found out the name of this movie the song was from. It was more that one year later that I had realised that this song was not yet covered here.

Whenever I find un discussed songs like this, I start imagining in my mind that the song may have been a special song, being held back for some special occasion. Sometimes such songs do get discussed, but not necessarily on a special occasion and often without much fanfare either when I would feel that the song was worthy of better covereage. 😊

I decided to watch this movie ‘Patanga-1971’ which is available on YT which was the name of the movie this “special” song was from.

The reason why this song was stuck up in my mind could be because I may have watched the movie with my Parents or Uncles in my early childhood when I was too young to recall much. I must have been three and half years or little more then as the dates of the release of the movie suggests. I also feel that this song (from this movie) may have been a frequently played song on radio during those years.

I would categorise this song is the same category of my nostalgic songs as ‘Kaisa jaadu daalaa ma banarasi roomaal waala’ and ‘Joode mein gajra mat baandho’ which haunting me for many years before I finally managed to locate them.

Coming back to the song being presented today, if you watch the movie, you will find no reason for this song to be there in the movie where it appears. It just comes as a ‘filler’ and has no connection with the storyline or no connected events also. (That is what I can conclude by watching the movie till this song and a little more after the song is over).

The movie itself, as other song posts of this movie suggests, was not a success I think, and moves forward on a predictable story line, except that Ajit does not plays a villain’s role in this movie.

The song is very nice to listen to and watch too. Jayshree T and the actor (I am unable to identify the actor?) have given a rocking performance on the soulful singing of Asha Bhonsle and Rafi Saab.

Lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri are also very good and Shankar Jaikishan’s music is as expected and melodious.

Now, it was only the ‘mukhda’ of this song ‘patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye…’ and there after only its tune that was there playing in my mind over all these years. While preparing this post I have now listened to it and watched it many times.

This is the fifth song (including one multiple version) to be posted on the blog. Four songs have been posted earlier on the blog which also includes the more popular (?) ‘Thodaa ruk jaayegi to tera kyaa jaayegaa’ .

I am not aware how today’s song fared at that time and would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on it and the movie.

(Note: – In HFGK, Vol -V 1971-1980 under song list of the songs of this movie today’s song is mentioned at number two while in the movie it is on number four and I don’t know if it is just by mistake or there is any reason for that).

‘Patanga-1971’ (or Patangaa-1971) was directed by Kedar Kapoor for K.R. Films, Bombay.

It was produced by Kedar Kapoor and R.S. Sharma.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Vimi, Ajit, Sajjan, Wasti, Ashok Kapoor, Laxmi Chhaya, Zeb Rehman, Jagdish Raj, Ram Mohan, Leela Mishra, Pravin Paul, Geeta, Amina Bai, Ram Avtaar, Shekhar Purohit, Prem, Shiv Chander, Ravinder Kumar, Haroon, Lal, Nasir, Balram, Santosh, Rajkumar, Basant, Jayshree T and Rajinder Nath.

Story of this movie was written by Vinod Kumar. Screenplay and dialogues were written by Pt.Mukhram Sharma.
Editing of this movie was done by B.S.Glaad.

There are eight songs (seven+one) in this movie, with one song having two parts. Lyrics of these songs are written by Neeraj (four songs), Hasrat Jaipuri (three songs) and Indeewar (one song).

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar – Jaikishan (assited by Dattram and Sabastian).
This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.08.1971.

As mentioned above the today’s song is the fifth song of this movie being posted today after a gap of almost two years.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song.

Patangaa aa
Patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye
Ye deepak jhoom jhoom lehraaye
Patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye
Ye deepak jhoom jhoom lehraaye ae
Ye deepak lau usi se lagaaye
Patangaa bhed jaan naa paaye
Ye deepak lau usi se lagaaye
Patangaa bhed jaan naa paaye

Man ki agan ko haaye nahin jaanaa aa
Aag se khela ye parwaanaa aa
Man ki agan ko haaye nahin jaanaa aa
Aag se khela ye parwaanaa aa
Man ki lagi hai tan ujiyaaraa
Jalte rehna bhaag hamaaraa
O o o
Ye batiyaan kaun tujhe samjhaaye
Ye batiyaan kaun tujhe samjhaaye

Patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye
Ye deepak jhoom jhoom lehraaye ae
Ye deepak lau usi se lagaaye
Patangaa bhed jaan naa paaye ae

Kaam hai aasaan hunh
bas mar jaana aa
Kaam hai mushkil
khud ko jalaana aa
Kaam hai aasaan
haan bas mar jaana aa
Kaam hai mushkil
khud ko jalaana aa

Tore milan mein jaan to jaaye
Pyaar ki lekin aan na jaaye
O o o
Hamesha preet ki reet nibhaaye
Hamesha preet ki reet nibhaaye
Ye deepak lau usi se lagaaye
Patangaa bhed jaan naa paaye

Patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye
Ye deepak jhoom jhoom lehraaye ae

Tera ujaala paaun jahaan par
Pankh pasaare aaun wahaan par
Haaye
Tera ujaala paaun jahaan par
Pankh pasaare aaoon wahaan par
Bhor bhaye tak panth nihaaroon
Tere liye main umr guzaaroon
Ho o o
Mujhe to aur koyi naa bhaaye
Mujhe to aur koyi naa bhaaye

Patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye
Ye deepak jhoom jhoom lehraaye ae
Ye deepak lau usi se lagaaye
Patangaa bhed jaan naa paaye ae

Patangaa jal jal jal mar jaaye
Ye deepak jhoom jhoom lehraaye ae

ओ लहरिये वाली
ओ मोतियोंवाली
ओ लहरा
ओ लहरा
ओ लहरा आ

बम

होए

हाय हाय

पतंगा आ
पतंगा जल जल जल मर जाए
ये दीपक झूम झूम लहराए
पतंगा जल जल जल मर जाए
ये दीपक झूम झूम लहराए ए
ये दीपक लौ उसी से लगाए
पतंगा भेद जान ना पाए
ये दीपक लौ उसी से लगाए
पतंगा भेद जान ना पाए

मन की अगन को हाय नहीं जाना आ
आग से खेला ये परवाना आ
मन की अगन को हाय नहीं जाना आ
आग से खेला ये परवाना आ
मन की लगे है तन उजियारा
जलते रहना भाग हमारा
ओ ओ ओ
ये बतिया कौन तुझे समझाए
ये बतिया कौन तुझे समझाए

पतंगा जल जल जल मर जाए
ये दीपक झूम झूम लहराए ए
ये दीपक लौ उसी से लगाए
पतंगा भेद जान ना पाए ए

काम है आसान हुंह
बस मर जाना आ
काम है मुश्किल
खुद को जलाना आ
काम है आसान बस मर जाना आ
काम है मुश्किल खुद को जलाना आ

तोरे मिलन में जान तो जाए
प्यार की लेकिन आन न जाए
ओ ओ ओ
हमेशा प्रीत की रीत निभाये
हमेशा प्रीत की रीत निभाये
ये दीपक लौ उसी से लगाए
पतंगा भेद जान ना पाए ए

पतंगा जल जल जल मर जाए
ये दीपक झूम झूम लहराए ए

तेरा उजाला पाऊं जहां पर
पंख पसारे आऊँ वहाँ पर
हाए
तेरा उजाला पाऊं जहां पर
पंख पसारे आऊँ वहाँ पर
भोर भये तक पंथ निहारूं
तेरे लिए मैं उम्र गुजारूं
हो ओ ओ
मुझे तो और कोई ना भाए
मुझे तो और कोई ना भाए

पतंगा जल जल जल मर जाए
ये दीपक झूम झूम लहराए ए
ये दीपक लौ उसी से लगाए
पतंगा भेद जान ना पाए ए

पतंगा जल जल जल मर जाए
ये दीपक झूम झूम लहराए ए

hum kahin bhi hon
chale aayenge

What an extraordinary promise this is.

We had a small get together of music lovers, earlier in the day today. And for the day it is, part of our conversation revolved around Rafi Sb, and his persona, and his legacy. ‘God’s Own Man’ is the phrase expressed by one of the gathering. Certainly, all people are God’s people. But then some are special. They are ‘God’s Own People’. Humble and giving – the two traits that stand out as shining beacons in this industry that is famous for cutthroat competition, and the rule of money power. So much corruption and cruelty bleeds into it, and in turn, generates more cruelty and heartlessness.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 36

“सावन की परी चुप चुप है खड़ी

I came across this song for the first time, few weeks ago. It has been sitting in the hard disk for quite some time now, one of a set of songs of Rafi Sb that Bakshish Singh ji gave to me. On some prompting thought in the mind, I just played this song, as I was searching for a song starting with ‘स’, and goodness, just could not believe that this wonderful gem of a song has been sitting away from mainstream listening. Later, when I checked online, this song is posted on YT more than once, implying it is not so rare as I would imagine. Oh but, what a song, what a song.
