“Rivaaj” (1972) was produced by K C Bokadia and directed by T Prakash Rao. The movie had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Pandhari Bhai, Mukri, Gauri, Jayshree T, Raj Kishore, Zeb Rehman, Mehmood Junior etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it (including one multiple version song). Four songs have been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the song in the movie:-

Today (28 January 2021) is the 84rd birthday of Suman Kalyanpur (DoB 28 Jauary 1937). On this occasion, here is a song from “Rivaaj”(1972). This song is sung by Suman LKalyanpur. Indeevar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is lip synced by Mala Sinha and it is picturised as a god bharai ceremony song, as can be guessed from the lyrics of the song. Many people are seen in the picturisation. I can only identify Sanjeev Kumar. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

We take this opportunit to wish Suman Kalyanpur a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

72nd Republic Day – 26/01/2021
———————————————————-

dekho kaheen barbaad na hove ye bageecha
dekho kaheen barbaad na hove ye bageecha
isko hriday ke khoon se Baapu ne hai seencha
rakkha hai ye chiraag shaheedon ne baal ke,
iss desh ko rakhna mere bachchon sambhaal ke
ham laaye hain toofaan se kishti nikaal ke
iss desh ko rakhna mere bachchon sambhaal ke

For the last 13-14 years, I have seen that always original soundtracks of patriotic songs are played on every national festival day morning for at least 2 hours in the flag hoisting ceremony held at the building, adjacent to mine. Every year I am hoping that these songs, some of them very old are being played in my building, but no, they are in the next building:-). Always it is the case of ‘dur ke dhol suhaane’ to express in the hindustani parlance.

I was not motivated enough to write a post for today, till I heard the above quoted Rafi song from the film Jaagriti (1954), in between the two flag hoisting ceremonies I attended this morning. Plus I remembered this rendition of ‘Tarana-e-hindi’ from Ye Gulistan hamaara(1972).

I am producing the complete ghazal by Dr. Allama Iqbal, which I had meant to do a post to commemorate another anniversary, but since today is the day of patriotic songs, here it is:

Saare jahaan se achchha hindostan hamaara
Ham bulbulen hain iss ki ye gulsitaan hamaara

Gurbat mein hon agar ham rehta hai dil watan mein
Samjho vahin hamen bhi dil ho jahaan hamaara

Parbat wo sab se oonchaa ham-saaya aasmaan ka
Wo santari hamaara wo paasbaan hamaaraa

Godi mein khelti hain iss ki hazaaron nadiyaan
Gulshan hai jin ke dam se rashk-e-jinaan hamaara

Aye aab-rud-e-ganga wo din hai yaad tujh ko
Utra tere kinaare jab kaarwaan hamaara
Mazhab nahin sikhaata aapas mein bair rakhnaa
Hindi hain ham watan hai hindostaan hamaara

Yunaan o misr o rumaa sab mit gaye jahaan se
Ab tak magar hai baaqi naam-o-nishaan hamaara

Kuchh baat hai ki hasti mit-ti nahin hamaari
Sadiyon rahaa hai dushman daur-e-zamaan hamaara

‘Iqbal’ koyi mahram apna nahin jahaan mein
Maalum kya kisi ko dard-e-nihaan hamaara

Ist, 3rd, 4th and 6th sha’ir of the above is so well known that there is no song in the world to compare in popularity. As poetical expression of national/regional pride also this is an international legend, and will be so till the civilization survives. Maybe someone down the line would have thought of saying it this simply, but Dr. Iqbal thought of it first. Such a quote, I don’t think would sound this natural and believable in any other language. Dr. Iqbal wrote this as a childrens song and named it ‘taraana-e-hindi”.

There are many things in our vast country that we can be proud of, but the idea of India is the core of it. This type of poetry was needed back then, in the British India, to awaken the national fervour and make people yearn for the possession of the wealth, natural resources and the artistic genius, this country possessed and still possesses.

Yunaan o Misr o Rumaa sab mit gaye jahaan se
Ab tak magar hai baaqi naam-o-nishaan hamaara

Yunaan is Greece, Misr is Egypt and Rumaa is Rome (meaning Roman Empire here).

Kuchh baat hai ki hasti mit-ti nahin hamaari
Sadiyon rahaa hai dushman daur-e-zamaan hamaara

Iqbal knew his stuff and what he was talking about and to whom he was saying it. He wrote the poem before the world wars and the British were yet to complete 50 years of total domination in this region. And some 40 years before the end of 2nd world war, which were to finally break the backbone of the British Empire. It was first published on 16th August 1904, in the weekly journal Ittehad (Unity).

I know that the roots of the idea of Pakistan or a separate nation for muslims was to stem from the ‘taraan-e-milli’ which Dr. Iqbal wrote as a sequel to ‘taraana-e-hindi’ as per some theorists. But what is supposed to happen to the core idea of India which was the cultural diversity the intellectual world still swears by, is the point to ponder. This was the pluralism Iqbal was talking about a whole concept, it was destined to end up like:

Iss dil ke tukde hazaar huye
Koyi yehaan gira koyi wahaan giraa

The fact of the matter is, the Britishers, were the foreigners who never wanted to amalgamate with this country and they had their masters back home, whose coffers they were sent to fill. They left only those places intact in their wake, which they could ensure would be ruled by the European races and their generation. With India and other vast colonies like Arab world, they did not succeed in doing it. Instead, they managed to ensure that they would leave them divided, so that they can never rise against the European powers, for generations to come. They did this with the help of vested interests in the Arab world and India. The lies may be multiple but the truth is always one. It is still a matter of conjecture, who played in whose hands and ended up losing the power of numbers, a fact which is amply demonstrated by the growth of China in our times.

The British did not just divide the real idea of India, they divided the natural and human resources of the region, whom they tried to achieve control of, for more than 2 centuries, only to relinquish the full control within 100 years of gaining it. These facts and the time lines tell their own story. ‘Break the powers you can’t control” was the name of the game.

I feel this story is yet to be told in its full inglorious detail. Because even if it is late, the truth can never be suppressed forever. And we are living the era of ‘True lies’ by our own admission.

Here is the song to commemorate the Republic day 2021. Composition is credited to SDB and Pandit Ravi Shankar in the films soundtrack and singers are Sushma Shrestha and various artists. The full rendition is in chorus, as it befits the composition.


Song-Saare jahaan se achcha Hindostan hamaara (Ye Gulistaan Hamaara)(1972) Singers-Sushma Shreshtha, Lyrics-Allama Iqbal, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

Saare jahaan se achchha

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-2 – (one movie collaboration only)
——————————————————————————————-

Welcome all to today’s post. In this series we will have a song from ‘Sahir & his music directors’ for ‘one movie association’ only. We have discussed this ‘one movie collaboration’ in the first article of this series here.

We are taking a ‘pause’ here instead of moving to ‘two movie collaboration’ movies of Sahir & his music directors.

Thus, I will say this article as a ‘pause post’ here in this series.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’. So far, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog and it was (the only popular or known song) ‘bol meri gudiya gudde ke sang jaayegi’.
This first song from this movie was posted on 24.01.2009. So, in the next couple of months this would be celebrating its twelve years on the blog. With this song being discussed today, that song would now have company. 😊

The other reason for covering a song from this movie is that I do not remember to have listened to the songs of this movie as frequently as most other songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi that I have listened to frequently and.

I have not watched this movie. But I remember to have heard the song ‘bol meri gudiya gudde ke sang jaayegi’ on radio and loud speakers in my childhood days.

‘Bhai Ho To Aisa-1972’ was directed by Manmohan Desai for ‘A.K. Movies, Bombay’. It was produced by A.K. Nadiadwala. It had Jeetendra, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Bipin Gupta, Tiwari, Bela Bose, Viju Khote, Praveen Paul, Jankidas and Jagdeep with Indrani Mukherjee, Jayshree T, Jeevan, Ranjeet, Bobby, Sapru.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by K.P. Pathak and dialogues were written by Prayag Raj. Kamlakar was the editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.05.1972.

This movie had five songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Sonik-Omi.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar were the singers for the songs in this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ho…chor…hamne phansaaya Lata Mangeshkar
02 Bol meri gudiya gudde ke sang jaayegi Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 24.01.2009
03 Aa jaa meri jawaani ko mastaani ko Lata Mangeshkar Being discussed today
04 Ae phooljhadi ae gulchhadi Mohd Rafi
05 Sun le naagraja sun le mere devta Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen it is performed by Jayshree T. If one looks at the video without listening the full song somebody could well mistake it for a song sung by Asha Bhonsle.

But this is a different song where we see Jayshree T performing in front of two ‘daakus’ (Jeetendra and Jagdeep) who have kidnapped Mama (Jeevan with his daughter) and all this is done to ensure that Mama (Jeevan) believes that there is a ‘hamshakal’ of Bharat (Jeetendra) and he can tell his big brother Ram Singh (Shatrughan Sinha) about this, who is planning to kill Bharat, to get all the estate of his father on his name. However, the movie ends with everything going well as planned by the ‘director’ for the ‘audience’ 😊

I am reproducing below a brief about this movie as given on IMDB which can be helpful to understand the overall ‘plot’ 😊

“Thakur is a rich and wealthy man. He has two sons, the elder is Ram, who is married but frequents a prostitute Munnibai. The second son is Bharat, who is unmarried, and is good, virtuous, and devoted to his family, and expected to marry Roopa. While disciplining his elder son, Thakur has a heart-attack and passes away, leaving the administration of the estate to his younger son and daughter-in-law, the wife of Ram, Gayatri. This does not auger well with Ram and Mamaji, and they attempt to force Bharat to sign the estate over to them. When they fail, they conspire to kill him, and take over the estate from Gayatri. Bharat overhears this, and goes along with Ram’s plan to kill him. He then returns as Daaku Mangal Singh, his look-alike, in order to set things right. Things seem to be going well, until Bharat finds himself in a tight corner when he is accused of killing himself.”

Let us now listen to today’s song … and add one more song to the tally of songs of ‘Bhai Ho To Aisa-1972’ …

Hullo Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blog Day :

4500 Post No. : 16037

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.08.1972.

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

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

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

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The movie is a ‘1972’ movie ‘Rivaaj’.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blog Day : 4467 Post No. : 15958

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s date(10 cctober 2020) is rather unique. Fellow ASAD follower Satyajitji, from down-under, pointed it out. 10102020- “never before, never again” was the reaction to that from another regular follower of the blog. Of course it is a “unique arrangement of the numbers that form the date which is appreciated by our brain”. A true statement by our in-house encyclopaedia.

Today’s post is a rather difficult one too. Never before have I faced such a dilemma. It is a case of too many options. I sifted through a whole lot of songs before I made a choice.

The song features a heroine who was not so great-looking when she made her debut in 1970. She was extremely ordinary. Very gawky. She has said in many of her interviews that she was very uncomfortable wearing all those funny, awkward dresses and costumes. She was not happy doing the dance steps she was made to perform. She was cast opposite heroes old enough to be her father- she was hardly 13 or 14 when she made her debut. She didn’t have an elder to guide her in choosing films like her contemporary Hema Malini who had her mother with her at every stage in her career.

Her first film was not in Hindi though; it was in Telugu as a child actress- not one but two- one as a 4-year old in 1958 and next in 1966 when she was 12. Her next film was in Kannada with Dr. Rajkumar as the male lead in 1969.

But she accepted all that came her way. She has survived in an industry where fortunes change every Friday. She learnt the art of perfect make-up first. Then followed it up with some strict regimen and went from gawky to gorgeous. She was already good at emoting and dancing she just polished them up and learnt from her job and gave it all she had. For some of her heroes she was a lucky mascot and sure route to success whenever their career hit a few flops. And Jeetendra has said this in so many words once. And she doesn’t tire of admitting that if given a second chance she will love to walk the same path again.

I need not specify that I am talking of Bhanurekha Ganesan who is popular as Rekha- the sweet heart of a whole generation of moviegoers. There was a time when Hema Malini was my personal favourite as also the favourite of a few of my classmates. Then I saw “Khoobsurat” 1980 (I don’t tire of telling this) following it up with “Agreement” “Jal Mahal” and the best of the times-“Umrao Jaan”. “Umrao Jaan” was the best in terms of acting, direction, songs and small wonder that she was awarded the National Award for the best Actress for that year. I had seen a few of Rekha’s movies prior to “Khoobsurat” too but most of those movies had her playing the typical film heroine where she just had to look an eye-candy flutter her eyelashes, sing a song too and scream her way through. But she was earnest in all of those too.

She was cast in many two-heroine movies like “Nagin” (this had more than two heroines), “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, “Ram Balram” etc. She was heroine to actors of the 60s- Raj Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Biswajeet, Deb Mukherjee, Sanjeev Kumar (I am sure I am missing a few) and actors who made their debut in the later years of the 60s- Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan etc. She has also paired with Navin Nischol (hero in her debut film), Anil Dhawan, Randhir Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, even Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty. Some actors who were her fans as youngsters also got to be her hero- Anil Kapoor (another ageless wonder who has done two with her), Akshay Kumar for example. But Rekha herself did movies with Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand (whose fan she was) rather late in their careers. She was Shashi Kapoor’s Vasantsena in “Utsav” and Rakesh Roshan’s avenging angel in “Khoon Bhari Maang”.

Sorry I can go on and on and people will say a fan is at work here. But I cannot get enough of her and when I chanced upon this video of Hema Malini’s 70th birthday I was supremely pleased as it gave me both my favourites in one video. Such a lot of camaraderie between the two beauties, difficult to choose who is more beautiful

Getting to today’s song, it is from a movie which was directed by Manmohan Desai. As per the tradition of Manmohan Desai movies we have Randhir Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha as brothers who get separated as children. Both like the same girl but the girl likes the simpleton from the village who has respect for even a night-club dancer. I shall not give the story of the movie will just give the name of the movie- Rampur Ka Laxman.

Wishing our ageless diva a very happy birthday with this song which shows her in one of those costumes that I spoke of earlier. It doesn’t compliment her and that hairdo was the standard which all heroines sported back then. Plus not to miss the kilos of makeup that she had on. If my memory is correct this was a song at the birthday party of the character played by Rekha and we have Sulochana (who was the mother of the heroes playing Rekha’s nanny), Roopesh Kumar, Raj Mehra, and a smart young looking Ranjeet (who is waiting in the wings for spoiling the party).

Song-Arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan (Rampur Ka Laxman)(1972) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyon mere yaar
maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali
arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

jo bhi kare pyaar
main uska yaar
ghalat mujhe na samajhna
main to yahaan
aaya hoon milan ke liye
main subah shaam sabka ghulaam
itna magar yaad rakhna
bura hoon main
bas dushman ke liye
ulfat ke jo pyaase ho tum
chaahat ka hoon mai nbhi sawaali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise waha
kyon mere yar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

abhi ye sama hai meharbaan
jhoom ke jeele deewaane
kaisi ee haaye mastaani raat hai ae
zindagi ka lele maza
phir kya ho kaun jaane
bhaai mere ae
kuchh na tere haath hai
do char pal lehraake chal
hai zindagi kab rukne waali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

khel hansi aadat meri
chup rehna main na jaanoon
maine yahi ab tak jaana nahin
tum bhi mere
tum bhi mere
sabko apna hi maanoon
par ye dil sabka deewaana nahin
aur jispe hai deewaana dil
uski ada sabse niraali
pyaar ka samya kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 101 # Remembering Salil Chowdhury #
————————————————————————————

Today 5th September 2020 is the twenty-fifth (19 November 1922 – 5 September 1995) ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ great music director and also lyricist, writer and poet Salil Chowdhary.

Salil Chowdhury has given us some of the unforgettable and even immortal songs in movies like ‘Do Bigha Zameen-1953’, ‘Naukri-1954’, ‘Jaagte Raho-1956’, ‘Madhumati-1958’, ‘Parakh-1960’, ‘Chhayaa-1961’, ‘Anand-1971’, ‘Mere Apne-1971’, ‘Rajnigandha-1974’ and many many others. There is a long list of his achievements and recognitions which very well deserved a detailed post. However today we will discuss a lesser known movie where music is composed by him.

Today’s song is from a movie ‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’.

I came across this song almost seven years back and it is lying pending since then. That time the very less information was available with me about his movie. After that I got information from HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The movie had also become available online for some time before becoming unavailable again.

Here are the details about his movie.

‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Lakshmi Enterprise’ and ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee Unit’. Saroj Bannerjee, Susheela Kamat, Nitin Mukesh and Shakeel Chandra were assistant directors. The movie was presented by Ashok Hira and Kishore Kanungo

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Nityanand Dutt and D.N. Mukherjee were his associates.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Gulzar. Additional scenes were written by Salil Chowdhary and lyrics were written by Yogesh.

Das Dhaimade was the Editor in chief for this movie whereas Subhash Gupta was the sound editor. Editing was done by Shanker Pradhan, Shreedhar Mishra, Khan Zaman Khan and Anil Pradhan. Biren Tripathy was the Dialogue director of this movie. Anil Ghosh was the associate director and controller of production.

This movie had Vijay Arora, Robi Ghosh, Meeta Faiyyaz, Naarghita, Kumud Damle, Meher Banu, Rajni Bala, Sabeena, Sunita, Tun Tun. Kali Bannerjee, Utpal Dutt, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee. They were supported by S. N. Banerjee, Raj Verma, Bhola, Noni, Tarun Ghosh, Mukund Babu, Sudha, Sarita Devi, Shreedhar, Jagjit, Meena Rai and others.

Manna Dey, Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita had given their voice to the two songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Salil Chowdhury. Kanu Ghosh and Shashikant assisted him in music.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.11.1972.

Today’s song is a background song played while the titles of the movie are rolling. Earlier video links were available which now seem to have become obsolete and only the audio of this song is available.

This song is sung by Manna Dey. This movie had total two songs and the other song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Salil Chowdhury.

With this song ‘Sabse Badaa Suh-1972’ makes its debut on the blog.
