“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.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 62
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was in cruise mode, merrily covering six songs every day. 28 august 2010, the day exactly ten years ago was no exception. First song of the day got posted at 7:01 AM and sixth post at 8 :34 AM !

Ten years back the following songs were posted on the blog;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Kyaa bataaun muhabbat hai kyaa Parbat-1952 All songs covered
Dil ke phaphole jal uthe seene ke daag se Parichay-1954 03 songs posted
Tum ek baar muhabbat ka imithaan to lo Baabar-1960 All songs covered
Meri aankhon se koyi neend liye jaata hai Pooja Ke Phool-1964 All songs covered*
Binaa badraa ki bijuriyaa kaise chamke Bandhan-1969 04 songs posted
Saath mein pyaaraa saathi hai Dil Daulat Duniyaa-1972 03 songs posted

Three out of six movies have since been YIPPEED. Other three movies are still up for grabs as far as today’s blog ten year challenge is concerned.

So, here is a song from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972), the latest of the six movies, and perhaps the most obscure of the six movies that were covered ten years ago.

Three songs from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972) have been covered so far :-

Song Posted On
Saath mein pyaaraa saathi hai 28.08.2020
Masti aur jawaani ho 18.07.2013
Ruk meri raani…. o monalisa 18.07.2017

Here is the fourth song from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Lyrics is supposedly a joint effort of Hasrat Jaipuri and Neeraj (according to HFGK). Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Rajesh Khanna and Sadhana were in lead roles, this song was almost certainly picturised on them. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.
Mr Anekant, our knowledgeable reader informs us that the song was picturised on Jagdeep and Helen.

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

Rehnuma, starring Rehana Sultan and Vinod Mehra, is an uncompleted movie of the early 1970s. I haven’t been able to find any more details about it on the Internet, and would request knowledgeable Atulites to throw some light on it.

In 1972, Madan Mohan recorded four songs for this film penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri, but the movie got shelved for some reason … and the songs were just lost. But later they were found on his tapes after his demise and released by his family on a rare LP … and were included in the album Tere Bagair released by YRF Music.

Mere Ashqo.n Ka Gham Na Kar Aye Dil is one of the four soulful numbers from that ill-fated movie, vocalised by Sur Saraswati Lata Mangeshkar as only she can. This emotional ghazal with a typical Madan Mohan style melody is presented with modern arrangements as was perhaps the requirement of the film.

The link here is of a brief audio clip of Madan Mohan trying out different variations of tunes when composing this song before finalizing the version recorded in Lata’s vocals. It is accessible on YouTube here.

If this number was actually filmed, it’s reasonable to assume that it would have been on Rehana Sultan. Its actual video clip is not available, but a version of the song voiced-over on the Bollywood Venus Madhubala from an assortment of clips from her various movies can be viewed here.

Singer Bella Sulakhe presented this number credibly in a live show which is worth a watch here.

Song–Mere Ashqon Ka Gham Na Kar Ae Dil (Rehnuma)(UR)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar aye dil
Apni barbaadiyon se dar ae dil
Apni barbaadiyon se dar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar aye dil

Silsila rok beeti baaton ka
Silsila rok beeti baaton ka
Silsila rok beeti baaton ka
Warna tadpega raat bhar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil

Raah sunsaan hai andhera hai
Raah sunsaan hai andhera hai
Raah sunsaan hai andhera hai
Kaise tay hoga yeh safar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil

Teer barsaaye chaand ki kirnen
Teer barsaaye chaand ki kirnen
Teer barsaaye chaand ki kirnen
Raat ke nange jism par ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil
Apni barbaadiyon se dar, ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil
Ae dil
Ae dil
Ae dil
Ae dil

I cut my HFM teeth in late 1960s when old order was giving way to new. Old order meant Rafi as the male playback singer of choice, Shammi Kapoor as the heart throb, and Shankar Jaikishan as the music directors of choice for big banners. In a matter of a few years or so, the musical order was turned upside down. When the dus settled, we found Shammi Kapoor being replaced by Rajesh Khanna, Rafi by Kishore Kumar and Shankar Jaikishan by R D Burman.

I became a young music lover sometime in mid to late 1960s. From being used to Rafi voice blaring from loudspeakers, I found a new male voice beginning to blare out of loudspeakers. Alongwith rest of the population, I too was mesmerised by this voice. The vesry first time I listened to the voice of Kishore Kumar, i loved it. the song was the iconic “Padosan”(1968) song-“mere saamne waali khidki”.

Rajesh Khanna meanwhile took the movie world by storm with “Aradhana”(1969), and that was followed by a string of hits. I would have loved to watch all those Rajesh Khanna songs, but I ended up watching “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh”(1971), that is all. By the time my movie watchin spree began in right earnest in june 1978, Rajesh Khanna had lost his crown as the first superstar of Hindi movies. That crown had passed on to Amitabh Bachchan.

Unlike Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Kumar never lost the crown of the top male playback singer. He continued to hold this crown troughout his life, till 1987. What longevity ! It is not easy to hold on to the top spot, as we see from the example of Rajesh Khanna. If Kishore Kumar could do it for close to two decades till his death, they this speaks highly of his durability and saleability. In fact, I feel that he almost singlehandedly held up the quality of playback singing during 1980s after all other leading playback singers had passed away.

On the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s 91st birth anniversary today on 4 august 2020 here is an archtypical Rajesh Khanna song sung by Kishore Kumar. The song is a duet from “Shahzaada”(1972). This movie was directed by K Shankar for Amar Chhaaya, Bombay. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Raakhee, Madan Puri, Veena, Karan Dewan, Pandari Bai, Jairaj, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Gulshan Baawra, Badri Prasad, Halam, Varalakshmi, Shreeram Shastri etc in it. The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Shehzaada”(1972) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The song is penned by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by RD Burman. This roothhna manaana genre of song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Raakhi.

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

Today, 18th July, is the fourth remembrance day of the renowned singer, Mubarak Begum. In 2016, she had passed away in Bombay, at the age of 80, after a protracted illness.

A very unique voice that stands apart from all her contemporary singers, her repertoire of songs rendered reads like a list of favorites all the way through. Our dear friend Girdharilal ji of Jodhpur has painstakingly compiled a near exhaustive list of her songs in films. This includes songs in Hindi films, unreleased films, regional language films and also three films from Pakistan. The total number of films across all categories for which she has sung, is close to 135, and the total number of songs is close to 215. There is also a very small number of known non-film songs also that she has rendered.

She started her singing career in Hindi films in 1949, with the film ‘Aaiye’, in which she sang “Mujhe Aane Lagi Angdaai Re” under the music direction of Shaukat Haidri, also known as Nashaad later in his career. The list of films indicates that she was actively singing in films till as late As early to mid 1980s, a career that well stretched across three decades. The number of 215 may not sound very impressive given the duration of active years in the industry, but as mentioned earlier, the list is near stocked with favorite songs one after the other. An impressive portfolio, given that she – by her own admission, and as written by other observers about her – was not at all skilled at networking and self promotion in the industry.

Mubarak Begum had come to Delhi for a live program in October 2012. Our dear friend AK ji (of Songs of Yore) and myself got the opportunity for a personal meeting with her. One thing that she mentioned with stress was that it happened many times with her, that a recording was done, and then it was never used, or the song got re-recorded in another voice, without any information to her. She said that she lost many an opportunity this way, for her songs being published on gramophone records. Not many may know this, but she had recorded a song for ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960) under the baton of Naushad Sb – a trio song in which she accompanied Lata Mangeshkar and Shamshad Begum. That song was later scrapped from the film.

Today, I present this very lesser known song from an obscure film from 1972 – ‘Naarad Leela’. As the name may indicate, this a mythological film produced under the banner of Neena Films, Bombay and is directed by Dhirubahi Desai. The cast of actors listed for this film are Shahu Modak, Sushma, BM Vyas, Indira Billi, SN Tripathi, Madhumati, Jeevan, Himmat Singh Chauhan, Lata Arora, Madhuri, AK Tiwari, Shri Bhagwan, Anjali Devi, Pal Sharma, Uma Khosla, Moolraj Rajda, Lakkiram, Om Prakash, Digvijay Narayan, Asit Sen, Tuntun, Yashodhara Katju, Parbha Desai, and Satyajeet. The songs of this film are penned by Madan and he music is given by Narayan Dutt.

On screen, this song is performed by Tuntun (originally Uma Devi), as she tries to woo and entice a bearded ascetic. Given the beard, I am not able to put name to this face in the video clip. I request other knowledgeable readers to please help identify this actor. And also add more information about the film.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by our dear Prakash ji.

“Bandagi” (1972) was a “social” movie which was directed by K Shankar for MCR Films, Madras. The movie had Vinod Mehra, Sandhya Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar, Ramesh Deo, Sundar, Birbal, Shivraj, Prem Kumar, Gemini Balu, Indira Bansal, Shammi, Shabnam, Pandhari Bai, Padma Khanna, Jagdeep etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. !972 was a time when I was as my precocious best as far as listening to Hindi movie songs on loudspeakers and radio was concerned. But I must admit that I never heard any songs of this movie. I was not even aware of the name of the movie till now ! So it is clear that the movie did not do well at the box office.

One song from the movie has been discussed in the past. Here is the second song from “Bandagi”(1972) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The picturisation shows Vinod Mehra (badminton racquet in hand) singing this teasing cum flattering song for Sandhya Roy (also holding a badminton racquet). The same song picturised over a Shammi Kapoor or Jeetendra would have made this song a hit song. Sadly Vinod Mehra never had the charisma of a top romantic hero. Investing on penny stocks like Vinod Mehra and Sandhya Roy and hoping to make handsome profits neither works in stock market nor in Hindi movies. 🙂


Song-Mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai (Bandagi)(1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

haaye
o
waah waah
kya kehne hain

mera yaar
mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
kambakht bahaaron ka kaleja jalta hai
o mera yaar
o mera yaar
o mera yaar
o mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
hey hey

uff mastaani
haay bhari jawani
uff mastaani
bhari jawaani
jaise chadhti nadiya ka paani
mukhde ko
mukhde ko dekh ke sooraj aankhen malta hai ae ae
o mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
hey hey

rang badan ka
haay chandan jaisa
rang badan ka chandan jaisa
chalta phirta ek chaman sa
sharma ke
sharma ke din bhi waqt se pehle dhalta hai ae ae
mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
sadqe

roop ki barkha
aise barse
roop ki barkha aise barse
dhoop bhi chhup jaaye darte darte
palko ke
palko ke saaye me ik shola sa tapta hai ae ae
mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
o mera yaar
o mera yaar
o mera yaaaar
o mera yaar zulf mein phool laga ke chalta hai
