“Jheel Ke Us Paar”(1973) was produced and directed by Bhappie Sonie forBhappie Sonie Productions, Bombay. This movie was based on a Gulshan Nanda novel of the same name. It had Dharmendra, Mumtaz, Prem Chopra, Junior Mehmood, Ranjeet, Fariyaal, Veena, Anwar Hussain, Ifthikar, Urmila Bhatt, Sujata, Polson, Baby Cheeku, Madan Kenny, Rajan Kapoor, Altamash Ghaznavi, Yogita Bali with guest appearance by Jagdish Raj and special appearance by Pran.

The movie had Six songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Jheel Ke Us Paar”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Mumtaz and Anwar Hussain. I have not watched the movie so I cannot say for sue if Mumtaz plays a blind girl or he pretends to be one in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Hello Atuldom

I am back again with one more birthday post. I was aware of this date- 9th April. For additional reminder Avinashji played my alarm this time. Every year I make mental notes to wish this Bengali Beauty but on the run-up to the date I end up forgetting to write and send a song.
When I shared my experience of seeing the dream girl at Mumbai airport with my friends from school we had a major down-memory-lane session. We remembered who was whose fan at that young age of ours. And my friends were talking of how I was a die-hard Rekha fan and she herself was a Jaya Bhadhuri fan. Actually we were three of us and between us we had Rekha, Jaya and Hema as favourites and the other heroines of those time were also-rans in our opinion. Oh! to be that age again!!! Hope the song with post is liked by my girl-gang.

Jaya Bhaduri (later known as Jaya Bachchan) is an actress who had a naturalistic style of acting in both commercial and middle of the road movies. She debuted at the age of 15 in a Satyajit Ray film in Bengali, joined FTII graduated and made her Hindi debut in the title role of “Guddi” in 1971. This was followed by similar girl-next-door roles in “Mili”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Bawarchi”, “Piya Ka Ghar” etc. She tried to play slightly urban characters in “Jawani Deewani”, “Dil Deewana”, “Naya Din Nayi Raat”, “Parichay”; these characters were independent and had a mind of their own and could make decisions for themselves. Whether girl-next-door or modern, her footing was on-par with the male lead. Her “raat-ki-rani” in “Shor” or “knife sharpener” Mala of “Zanjeer” and Sushma of “Naya Din Nayi Raat” are still remembered fondly. She had the distinction of playing girl-friend, wife, daughter and bhabhi to Sanjeev Kumar. She has played daughter to Dharmendra twice -“Phagun” and “Samadhi”. She had acted in about nine movies with Amitabh as co-star before she took a sabbatical to look after her family.

During her days as lead actress there was one movie with an unusual casting- Gaai aur Gori. I have not seen the movie but from what I have read on IMDB and in the post (Gori o gori prem kar le)by Avinashji for the only song to be posted; the movie was the story of a village belle (something that Jaya Bhaduri had never played) who has a pet cow and her journey through life. “Gaai aur Gori” was a movie were she paired with Shatrughan Sinha (this movie also joins my list of movies to be seen).

Now today’s song has Jaya in the riding a bullock cart through the village singing in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar a song written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. From the video it looks like she has a tomboyish character in the movie. This song reminded me of the “sawaan ka mahina” song from “Milan” in the sense that Lata says the word ‘Shamu’ as ‘Saamu’.
Here is wishing our Guddi a very Happy Birthday

Four films in his debut year. An accomplishment that is not claimed by many other music directors. The year – 1966. And the films – ‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’, ‘Smuggler’, ‘Shera Daku’ and ‘Husn Aur Ishq’. And a sampler of hits from these films – the all time favorite “Hum Tere Bin Jee Na Sakenge Sanam”; the timeless Rafi Sb – Suman Kalyanour duet “Hum Jahaan Hai Wo Maqaam Husn Aur Ishq Hai”; the lilting Mukesh solo “Ae Mere Dil Teri Manzil”; the haunting Lata solo “Intezaar Ka Aalam, Tanhaai Aur Hum”; the racy cabaret number by Lata – “Dil Ka Lagaana Is Duniya Mein”. Songs all made memorable by the lilting tunes mixed with wonderful rhythm and orchestration – the music coming from the mind of Ganesh Prasad Sharma.

Remembering music director Ganesh – he passed away on 28th March, 2000. He was 58.

Ganesh Prasad Sharma, son of the venerable Ram Prasad Sharma, came on to the film scene in early 1960s, working along with the music director duo of Laxmikant Pyaarelal. He was the younger brother of Pyaarelal. His work accompanying his elder brother as and arranger and orchestration expert. As the word got around about his talent, and his ability to create attractive rhythm and orchestration arrangements, and by the middle of the decade he started getting assignments as independent music directors. The rush of assignments was such that he had to turn down some offers, right at the beginning of his career.

Over the years, however, despite creating some very wonderful music for films, his career did not really develop much beyond the initial euphoria. Around mid 1970s, after having composed music for almost 25 films, his career simply faded away. The general opinion is that Ganesh could not get away from the shadow of the more illustrious and successful team of Laxmi-Pyaare. Since he continued to work with L-P also, the quality and characteristics of the music of his own independent films never really stood out as distinct. The similarity between the two threads of music did not allow him to create a truly independent identity for himself.

Today, I present a duet song from the 1973 film ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’. The film is remembered for the iconic favorite in Rafi Sb’s voice – “Dil Ka Soona Saaz Taraana Dhoondega”. The film is produced by the famous BR Ishara under the banner of Co-Operative Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Madhusudan. The cast of actors is listed as Shatrughan Sinha, Rashmi Dhawan, Mehmood (Junior), Iftekhar, Madan Puri, Nadira, Roopesh Kumar, Malika, Chaman Puri, Honey Chhaya, Sapru, Lalita Kumari, Maruti, Kaajal, Rajni, Moolchand, Qureshi, Ranveer Raj, Subhash, Master Sheru, Master Ratan, and Master Chiku, with a guest appearance by Asha Sachdev.

The film has five songs listed. Four of these songs are already showcased on our blog. Today we bring on board the fifth and final song of this film. The song is penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. The singing voices are of Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar. On screen, the song is performed by Shatrughan Sinha and Rashmi Dhawan. The name Rashmi Dhawan is not very familiar as a heroine. Her name can be seen in just one more film ‘Mann Tera Tan Mera’ from 1971, which is also produced by BR Ishara. She had a side role in that film – the lead pair is listed as Anil Dhawan and Rehana Sultana. So apparently, ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’ is the only film of this actress as the heroine.

The song is picturised as a love song, with the protagonists expressing their feelings of first love for each other, in a beach scenario. Shatrughan has a very trim and fresh look in this film,

The post also rings in the Yippeee status for this film. The earlier four songs of this film have appeared in the blog as follows.

A very interesting thing to note here. The first song of this film, posted as far back as on 31st July, 2008, is the first teen song of our blog. And the film is the first teen film. What I mean is that this film made its debut as the 13th song on the blog, and also that it is the 13th film to appear on the blog. 🙂

And further, those were the days when the blog was still following ‘song-a-day’ convention. So it was also the 13th day for the blog. 🙂

Hello Atuldom

She was a child star to start with, facing the camera for the first time, probably at the age of 8 or 9 in 1948. Her father was a successful actor-producer-director of his time, but his death at a young age had this Baby becoming a child actress so that she could support her family. I am referring to Master Vinayak Damodar Karnataki’s daughter Nanda Karnataki a.k.a Nanda.

She debuted as Baby Nanda in the 1948 release “Mandir”. Her first adult role was in “Toofan Aur Diya” in 1956 at the age of maybe 17. She had a long career where she acted with as a supporting roles of kid sister, second heroine etc before graduating to heroine roles in the 60s. She paired with Shashi Kapoor in 8 films when he was not yet a successful star. “Jab Jab Phool Khile” helped her have a image change and this was seen in later movies like “Joru Ka Ghulam” and “The Train” (both with Rajesh Khanna), “Abhilasha”, “Beti” opposite Sanjay Khan. She had a successful pairing with Jeetendra too in movies like “Dharti kahe pukaar ke”

This Video that I saw sometime ago on youtube has Tabassum, with whom Nanda had near parallel career and was friends till she passed away in 2014, giving us some insight into Nanda’s life.

I spent some time trying to get the right song to remember this beautiful leading lady of the 60s and 70s. And here is a song from a movie that released in 1973, one of her last as a leading lady, where she is opposite the Bengali actor Ranjit Mallick. One song from this movie has been posted on the blog in 2012.

“Naya Nasha” directed by Hari Dutt and produced by C.V.K. Shastry had Nanda, Ranjit Mallick, Madan Puri, etc. etc in its cast. Our personal encyclopedia has given us an idea of what the movie was about in the comments of the only song from this movie to have appeared on the blog. the movie had four songs here is the second on the sixth anniversary of Baby Nanda i.e. Nanda.


Song-Aao karen baaten (Naya Nasha)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Sapan Chakravorty

Lyrics

ae
aao karen baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
o o pyaar ke din aaye

pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein

aise kyun khoye ho o

aise kyun khoye ho o
rut suhaani mein ae
phir kahaan ye mausam
iss jawaani mein
iss hawaa se
lag rahi hai
aag paani mein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
oo pyaar ke din aaye

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 13
——————————————————————————

In olden days (even today for that matter) Indians were expected to behave in a particular manner. For instance, when it came to their day to day live, most of them were “gareeb” and they were told that they had the sole right on the resources of the nation in the form of doles aka subsidies. All political parties claimed to be pro poor parties and promised to “hataao” gareebi if voted to power. After repeatedly getting voted to power on the plank of hataaoing gareebi, the same politicians now claim to be for the “gareeb”. These “gareeb” are supposed to be gullible possessing of short memory so the politicians can get away despite failing to fulfill their past promises.

Movie makers were no different. They too made movies for the same segment of society that were treated as “gareeb” by the political classes. This section of society was supposed to like movies with escapist stories that bore little resemblance to real life. Depicting real life was considered no no. Movies depicting real life were considered boring. Why would a “gareeb” audience come to the movie hall to watch movies depicting his real dull life ? This was what the movie makers believed in.

Sometimes, some movie makers would make movies with realistic movies. Ordinary movie goers and even press would describe these movies as boring. Most movies like this flopped.

Top stars acted in such movies for creative satisfaction, but the ordinary fans felt betrayed when they would go to the movie hall and find their star sans his usual mannerisms.

Rajesh Khanna is “Aavishkaar” (1973), and Amitabh Bachchan in “Man Aazaad Hoon” (1990) are two such movies that readily comes to my mind.

“Aavishkaar” (1973) was directed by Basu Bhattacharya Aarohi Film Makers Bombay. This movie had Rajesh Khanna, Sharmila Tagore, Dina Gandhi, Denis Clement, Satyen Kappu, Monika Jasnan (child artist), Devendra Khandelwal, Margaret, new discoveries Mahesh Sharma and Minna Johar etc in it.

The movie dealt with a real life “boring” tale, viz the marital life of a couple, played by Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. Fans of superstar Rajesh Khanna, who went to the movie hass expecting a movie like “Aaraadhana”(1969) were disappointed. There was no way juvenile fans (including yours truly) of Rajesh Khanna, who were brought up on stuff like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) were going to like this movie.

This movie was only for “mature” movie goers. Just like “rich” people were looked down upon by “gareeb” people, “mature” people, with their occasional boring movies were looked down upon by people loving “mainstream” movies.

Please do not believe the review of “Aavishkaar”(1973) that is carried by wikipedia etc. These reviews are written with the benefit of hindsight by people who were not even born when this movie was released. I remember the reviews carried out in mainstream Hindi media during 1973 which bore no resemblance whatsoever with its review that we now find online.

Coming to the songs of the movie, “Aavishkaar” (1973) had five songs in it. Four of these songs are covered in the past as described hereunder:-

माँ को पुकार कर पूछा बच्चे ने
आया कहाँ से हूँ माँ
बोलो तो

बोलो तो

माँ के स्तनों से उफन पडा दूध
और बह आया आँखों से
उत्तर

तुम तो हमेशा थे
मेरे मन की अभिलाषा में
तन की परिभाषा में
बचपन के गुड़ियाघर में ए
कितनी बार तुझे
खेलते खेलते तोड़ा आ
तोड़ते तोड़ते ए
जोड़ा आ

पाकर खोया और
खो कर पाया आ है
कहाँ से बताऊँ तू आया है
पडा तुझे मैंने कहाँ पाया है

मेरी अमर आशा
सुबह का सपना
माँ और दादी कि
सुनहरी ख्वाईश
प्रेम की परंपरा आ
आग की ख्वाईश

बनी तेरी काया है
कहाँ से बताऊँ तू आया है

“Heeraa”(1973) was produced and directed by Sultan Ahmed for Sultan Ahmad Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Helen, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Mukri, Randhir, Tabassum, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begam, B.B. Bhalla, Polsan, Renuka, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Jankidas, Master Raju, Pahalwan, Habib, Mac Mohan, Maqbool, Bam Lahiri, Abhimanyu Sharma, Master Rajoo etc in it, with friedly appearances by Faryal, Asha Potdar, Shyam Kumar and Satyendra Kappu.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

This song is a Bihar -Eastern UP kind of song where dancing girls were called to perform at important occasions such as weddings etc. In the picturisation, Asha Parekh is getting married and Helen is called upon to dance on the occasion.

Helen lip syncing in Lata’s voice (instead of Asha Bhonsle) and performing a mujra kind of dance (rather than cabarat). This was perhaps the idea of the moviemaker to cast Helen in a “different” kind of role. 🙂


Song-Der na karo piya pyaare (Heera)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aa aa
aa aa
shamma hai
gul bhi hai
bulbul bhi hai
parwaana bhi
raat ki raat ye sab kuchh hai
sahar kuchh bhi nahin
der na karo o
der na karo
piya pyaare
paas aate aate tumhaare
kahin door
kahin door
kahin door na main chali jaaun
der na karo o
piya der na karo
na karo

kaahe jodi
kaahe jodi nigodi piya maine tujhse najariya
dega taana
dega taana
dega taana zamana
hansegi ye saari nagariya
ab to hadd ho gayi intzaar ki
laaj rakh lo piya mere pyar ki
ab to hadd ho gayi intzaar ki
jali jaaun
pyaar ki aag mein
piya der na karo
piya pyaare
paas aate aate tumhaare
kahin doon na main chali jaaun
der na karo o
piya der na karo
na karo

dekhoon raahen
dekhoon raahen
nigaahen bichhaa ke main saari umariyaa a
par zamaana
par zamaana
par zamaana begaana
ye mohlat na dega sanwariya
waqt ko kisne roka
kahin de jaaye na dhokha
gair ka mujhe na kar de
maang mein aag na bhar de
aane waale abhi jo na aayega
dekh lena koi jaan se jaayega
aane waale abhi jo na aayega
chhali jaaun hathhon kismat se
main na chhali jaaun
piya der na karo
piya der na karo
na karo

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 50
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under this series where I am presenting yet another song from the Seventies. The last post presented in this series was also presented by me that too was a song from the year 1973.

The song under discussion is also from a movie of 1973.

Ever since Atul ji started this series it has become my routine to regularly check for movies which are eligible to be discussed in the series in the forthcoming month. I try to find movies that triggers long dormant memories of those days, associated either with the movies or their songs.

I may not necessarily have watched all those movies. In some cases it is only the songs from these movies, frequently being played on the radio or loudspeakers may have left lasting memories in my mind.

The movie for today’s song is a case inn point. I have not watched this movie till now, but I remember its song ‘tere naam ka deewaana, tere dar ko dhoondhtaa hai’ which was arguably the most popular of all the songs of this movie, as it was frequently played on the radio then. I did not like this song those days. Nevertheless this was the song and not any other songs that I associate with its movie.

After many years I listened to ‘honi to hoke rahegi anhoni naa hoye’ and liked it very much.

One more song from this movie which was popular and was played on radio and loudspeakers is the song being presented today. It was only after I browsed the list for the pending songs from this movie that I get to know that this song was from this movie ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’.

I was surprised when I find that this song has not been posted on the blog till now.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie or its songs till now. It was during the preparation of this post that I watched the video of this song for the first time.

Despite their popularity, none of these songs made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year.

Before going into the song let us have a look on the movies represented on the blog ten years ago this day 16th November 2009;

Movies represented on the blog on 16.11.2009 (in descending order);

Gaaon mein peepal peepal ki chhainyya Suraj Aur Chandaa-1973 03 of 06 songs posted
Sajanwaa bairi ho gaye hamaar Teesri Kasam-1966 All Songs Covered in the blog

‘Sooraj Aur Chandaa-1973’ or ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’ was directed by T. Madhava Rao for ‘Suraj Films, Madras’. (It was a costume drama movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol V). It was produced by A.V. Subramaniam. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Meeta (new discovery), Sujeet Kumar, Jagdeep, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shyama, Jairaj, Sajjan, Krishna Kant, Mukri, Ram Mohan, Herucles, Lalita Kumari, Sujata, Mona, Kamal, Bhimraj, Arun Kumar, Prem Kumar, Ravindra and others. Banda makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B. Vittalacharya, and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Krishna Rao.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.05.1973.

This movie had total six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three out of the six songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is the fourth songsfrom this movie to appear on the blog. The song is picturized on Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar where Bindu is lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Also, there are snakes around in the picturisation of this song.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Editor’s note:-This song was quite a well known and hummable song of 1970s. It was a song which one heard without necessaily being aware of its details.

From the lyrics, one would guess that a lady is singing about her beloved who has come from far off.

When one watches the picturisation, all such assumptions get thrown out of the window. What one watches in the picturisation is something mind blowing, inadvertently so.

The song is a “naagin” song, in which a “naagin” is singing this love song to her beloved. “Naagin” is played by Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar is her beloved.

“Naagin”(1954) provided the template of all “Naagin” movies, but this movie “Suraj Aur Chanda” (1973) takes that template to a different plane altogether.

In all other “Naagin” movies, a snake charmer (Sapera) plays the been and the female snake (invariably ichhaadhaari naagin) would turn into a human female and would then perform a dance.In this song, it is different. Here it is the snakes who play the “been” (yes seriously, just watch the picturisation). The snakes do not just play the been, they play the whole orchestra including instruments like Dholak, Tabla, Sitar etc as well. 🙂 And the lead snake Bindu performs the dance.

Snakes playing the music ! It is something unprecedented in the annals of Hindi movies ! I am not aware of any such instance in any other movie.

What an idea ! In my younger days, I would laugh at such a picturisation, but now, I can only be amused at the weirdly imaginative brain of the person behind the picturisation of this song.

This song deserves special recognition, especially for its picturisation.

We in this blog hereby make this song the century song of the blog.

THIS song is the 15300th song post in the blog. This song, marking the 153th century post of the blog is a “special” song in its own way. Picturisation of this song can keep people amused for hours ! 🙂

It appears that Laxmikant Pyarelal had specialised in being music directors of “Naagin” movies of that era. They would compose music for such well known “Naagin” movies like “Nageena”(1986)and “Nigaahen”(1989)” as well. These movies had Sridevi as the ichchaadhaari naagin. Remember ‘balma tum balma ho mere khaali naam ke’ 🙂 ?

So, with this amusingly picturised song, the blog completes another century. An agonisingly slow century that took 72 days. Very much in line with the slowing economy. 🙂

But on a different note, as many as 35 movies made their debut and three movies got YIPPEED during this period.

Thanks are due to all the supporters, well wishers, contributors, regulars and visitors whose continues support ensures that this musical bandwagon keeps chugging along on and on.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 48

Today’s song is from the 1973 movie ‘Heeraa’ which made its debut on the blog on 10th Oct’2009.

Other movies represented on the blog on that day were as follows;
(Movies represented on the blog on 10.10.2009 (in descending order);

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tujh sang preet lagaayi sajnaa ho raamaa Kaamchor-1982 All Songs covered in the blog
Apne pyaar ke sapne sach huye Barsaat Ki Ek Raat-1981 03 of 05 songs covered
Main tujhse milne aayi mandir jaane ke bahaane Heera-1973 03 of 05 songs covered
Arre yaar meri tum bhi ho ghazab Teen Deviyaan-1965 All Songs covered in the blog

Kashtiyaan sab ki kinaare pe pahunch jaati hain,
Naakuda jinka nahin,
Unka khuda hota hain”

Those lines played in the background with the ‘logo’ of Sultan Productions the home production of Producer and director Sultan Ahmed.

That also reminds us of the other production houses’ logos and some of them which played some famous lines and that was also one of the thrilling experiences of watching movies in the seventies.

‘Heera’ or ‘Heeraa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed and it was his home production.

It had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Helen, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Mukri, Randhir, Tabassum, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begam, B.B. Bhalla, Polsan, Renuka, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Jankidas, Master Raju, Pahalwan, Habib, Mac Mohan, Maqbool, Bam Lahiri, Abhimanyu Sharma, Master Rajoo and many others.
Faryal, Asha Potdar, Shyam Kumar, Satyendra Kappu make a friendly appearance in this movie.
The movie also introduced a sheep ‘Kaptaan’.

Story of this movie was written by K.B. Pathak. Dialogues were written by Wajahat Mirza. Wajahat Mirza also shared the screenplay writing K.B. Pathak and Sultan Ahmed. Editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Khanna and Mukri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1973.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) listed six songs on the movie page for this movie, it was however corrected in the addenda that the first song in the list, is actually only few lines of the first song in the movie ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ , and thus reducing the total number of songs of this movie to five.

This song ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ was presented on the blog by our Respected Arun ji and he also had mentioned in brief about this movie and its story. (Wherein only one correction is required that the villain Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) is not arrested b the police in the end of this movie, but he gets killed during the encounter with Heera (Sunil Dutt) and the Police).

I have vague memories of watching this movie either with my Father or my Uncle. And I must be around five or six years old then. After that I have never watched this movie again.

But I always have the nostalgia with me for the song ‘main tujhse milne aayi mandir jaane ke bahaane’ from this movie. I remember this song was very popular then and was frequently played on loud speakers. (however, none of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year). Other than this song the nostalgia related with this movie that I always carried was ‘the daaku, the horses and the guns and the ‘khandahars’ 🙂

Other than the two songs mentioned above the other song which one can remember after listening to it is ‘Jai Ambe Jagdambe Maa Jai Ambe Jagdambe’ which was also heard, may be during ‘Durga Pooja’ festivals only.

And these three songs mentioned above are the three songs from this movie which have been posted in the blog so far.

One can find the today’s song also heard on radio in those days, but I think it was not much popular and forgotten easily thereafter. However this can remind us of the many this type of songs in other movies 😊

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, while two lyricists wrote the songs for this movie, Indeewar three songs and Anjaan two songs.

Today’s song is written by Anjaan and sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is performed by Asha Parekh.

Asha Parekh recently celebrated her 77th birth anniversary on this 2nd October. (She was born on 2nd October 1942). We belatedly wish her a very healthy and peaceful life ahead.

This song happens to be a song in the ‘villain’s den’ where Asha Parekh and her Father Kanhaiyyalal are hostages after Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) has abducted them. And he forces Asha Devi (Asha Parekh) to dance in his den …

‘le baandh le ye ghunghroo… aur aisaa naach ke aaj saari sabhaa mein aag lag jaaye’

Naach …

And that is why this song …

Let us now enjoy this song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.


Song-Aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye (Heera)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

O deewaane tu sun
meri paayal ki dhun
iski jhankaar mein maut ka raag hai
ho koi sangedil
khaaq mein jaaye mil
aaj ghunghroo ke bolon mein wo aag hai
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
mujhe aise tu dekhen kyun
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

kar naa ghaayal mujhe
rang degaa tujhe
har lahu ka jo katraa giregaa yahaan
zulm itnaa na kar
yoon naa hadd se guzar
tu agar hai zameen to koi aasmaan
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
dekho mujhko na chhoona yoon
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne na paaye ae
bujhne na paaye …

Blog Day :

There are some very special memories related to this song. Memories of certain flights of fancy, associated with the expressions and emotions contained here in.

Greetings to Usha Khanna ji, on her 78th birthday today (7th October). It is sixty years now that she made her debut as a music director, way back in 1959 – ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, a film by Filmalya’s Sashadher Mukherjee. She recounts with a glee now, but then she was very nervous. Of course, just seventeen, recently out of school, and so miraculously given a break for a big name Shammi Kapoor starrer film. The first song recorded was “Megha Re Boley. . .”.  She walked into the recording studio with Sonik, who was the arranger for that film. She recalls that some musicians actually whistled at her as she made her way toward the group. And then Sonik told them that she is the music director. Quite a silence of disbelief followed.

Her nervousness was heightened by the fact that she would be directing Rafi Sb for her first song. The rehearsals and the recordings happened. Then at the end of the recording Rafi Sb asked her whether the song was recorded to her satisfaction. She recounts that she was too dazed and overcome by just his presence, and that she stammered in agreement. Then Rafi Sb told her – you are the music director. No matter who the singer is, but you are the boss. Even if I make a mistake, then you should correct me. Usha Khanna says that she was forever in Rafi Sb’s debt for giving her that encouragement and that advise.

More than 4 decades of active career and about 200 films in her portfolio, there are many a memorable songs and melodies that she has created – one of those music directors who would make you hear again. Ah, this one! Usha Khanna? Wow.

Listening to her music, one feels a lot of similarity with OP Nayyar. Of course that was the era that Nayyar Sb ruled with his rhythmic melodies, and other music directors would try to create music inspired by him. So Usha Khanna was also influenced by that style, but then she is not limited to style alone. There is definitely a lot of her own creativity that has gone into her work, else she would not have survived in this industry for four decades. And that too, being of a gender that generally is not associated with the work of a music director. The earlier names we can think of – Jaddan Bai, Bibbo, Saraswati Devi – all names from 1930s and 40s, when the classical music was the forte, and these ladies were trained and grounded in the classical mould.

Not Usha Khanna. She in fact, has no formal training in music. Her father, Manohar Lal Khanna, a lyricist active in the industry from late 1940s to 1960s, was her segue into music. He would write the lyrics and she would informally compose tunes for his songs at home. It was a creative spark and something special about her melodies that capture attention of her fathers industry friends like OP Nayyar and Indeewar. One thing led to another, and she was placed before Sashadher Mukherjee for an interview. The conversation started uncomfortably with singing, and ended very comfortably with music direction. S Mukherji, impressed with her tenacity and consistency (he had asked her to create two new tunes and present to him every day, for a year – think about doing that!!) gave her the first break with ‘Dil Deke Dekho’, and followed it up with ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). After these two films, Usha was quite much on her way. That she was able to sustain her standing in the industry for four decades, speaks volumes about her talent and her approach. Might we also notice that contemporaneous to her, and subsequently, we do not hear of any other lady music director in the industry whose performance has left a mark on the music history of Indian cinema.

Ah yes, about the flights of fancy that I mentioned about, in the first para. Regulars are aware that this song forms a part of a tandem pair. The accompanying song is the hit sung by Mukesh – “Barkha Rani, Zara Jam Ke Barso”. Yes of course, that is the better known and the more popular song in comparison. However, this rendition by Suman Kalynapur is no less pleasant, alluring and engaging. Rather more so. So when this film was released, the teenager in me was still at school. And as with a boy’s fancies at that age, of course, I do not have to put it in words. Suffice to say that right from the time I heard these two songs for the first time, my liking has always been for the Suman Kalyanpur version. The fancy connected with the Mukesh song is that there would be a charming princess for whom the boy in me would sing this song. However, the fancy associated with the Suman Kalyanpur song is that there would be charming beautiful princess who would be singing this song for me. That appealed so much more to me, that my flight of fancy those days was someone singing this song for me. Aaye haaye – the heart still takes a swing at this thought. 🙂

Quick summary – the film is ‘Sabak’ from 1973, produced and directed by Jugal Kishore, songs written by Sawan Kumar and Hasrat Jaipuri, and music by Usha Khanna. The star cast of this film is listed as Shatrughan Sinha, Poonam, Jaishri T, Jugal Kishore, Ranjan, KN Singh, Nazeer Hussain, Master Satyajeet, Chandrashekhar, Brahmchari, Hercules, Mumtaz Begum, Ramesh Dev, Seema, Rajnibala, Maruti, Rajpal, Kishan Kaul, Ved Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Moolchand, Bholanath, Manohar, Jerry, Omi Chopra, Uma Dutt, Pritam Kumar, Raj Verma, Kishan Billa, and Sundar Singh.

Once again, wishing Usha ji a very happy birthday and praying for many more healthy and comfortable returns of this day.

Ah yes, the lyrics of this song have been sent in by our dear Prakashchandra ji.

ज़रा थम के बरसो
पी मेरे आ जाएँ तो
चाहे जम के फिर बरसो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ॰॰ओ

पी को मेरे आने दे
अंग से लग जाने दे
पी को मेरे आने दे
अंग से लग जाने दे
फिर तू दुश्मन
यूं बरसना
जाने पाएँ वो ना रे॰॰ए॰॰ए
बरखा बैरन
ज़रा थम के बरसो
पी मेरे आ जाएँ तो
चाहे जम के फिर बरसो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ॰॰ओ
बरखा बैरन

“Chaalaak”(1973) was directed by T N Sharma and R K Bannerji for Film Dhara, Bombay. This “social” movie had Radha Saluja, Kiran Kumar, Alka, Jayshree T, Brahmchaari, Keshto Mukherji, Jagdeesh Raj, Brahm Bhardwaj, Master Ratan, Uma Dutt, Paresh Nanda, Moolchand, Banjara, Bachan Singh, Elizabeth, Suring=der Khanna, Sheikh, Bhola, Satyarani, Sudakshana Mukherji etc with guest appearances by Maruti, Hercules, Lalita Kumari, and friendly appearances by Ajeet, Gautam Sareen, P Jairaj and Danny Danjongpa.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Chaalaak”(1973). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ganesh.

The song is picturised as a party song. I am unable to identify the lady lip syncing the song in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Danny lip syncs in Kishore Kumar’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lip syncing lady.

The music of the song sounds familiar but that is not because this music was heard earlier. That is because this music was heard years later in a Laxmikant Pyarelal composition, viz “gore nahin ham kaale sahi” in “Deshpremi”(1982). Or is it some other song. I request our knowledeable readers to tell us about the song where this music is reused.
