#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 94 # Kalyanji-Anandji – Year 1975
———————————————–———————————————

Today 30th June 2020 is 92nd birth anniversary of Kalyanjibhai Virjibhai Shah (30 June 1928 – 24 August 2000) of the great music director duo Kalyanji-Anandji.

On this occasion as a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1975’ movie ‘Rafoo Chakkar’. I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my parents and brothers in my childhood. I was just around seven years old then (considering the date of release of this movie). However, the songs of this movie have always remained in my memory. I think they were very popular in those years and were frequently heard on loud speakers and radio. Particularly the songs ‘chhuk chhuk chhak chhak Bombay se Baroda tak’, ‘tumko mere dil ne’, ‘kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai’, ‘dil lena buri balaa hai’, ‘ae zamaane tu kar le sitam pe sitam’…

Almost all songs from this movie were good and I have a big nostalgia of the songs of this movie. So, when I became a member of this blog I had shared a couple of songs, and one of them ‘tumko mere dil ne’ was posted on 21.01.2014 (much later according to me, because when I joined the blog I always thought all songs of the seventies must be already there . 🙂

‘Tum ko mere dil ne’ has always been my big favorite and so is ‘kisi pe dil agar’ but then there is one more song from this movie which brings back memories for me and I am going to present this song today.
And since this song was pending since 2013, I thought I should go with it instead of taking another song when I was thinking of a post on this occasion today. All these years this song has been in my dormant memory associated with the name of this movie ‘Rafoo Chakkar’. I have no recollection of having watched this movie again either in theatre or on TV channels. I have only watched a couple of its songs on TV. I may have watched parts of this movie when it was being aired on TV.

“Rafoo Chakkar-1975’ was a presentation from the ‘House of Nadiadwala’. It was produced by I.A. Nadiadwala for ‘M.I. Films Pvt Ltd’. This movie was directed by Narinder Bedi.

Ajay Kumar was the chief assistant director while assistant director was Kapil Kapoor. Raj Bedi was the dialogue director.

Story of this movie was written by Jayant Dharmadhikari, whereas the dialogues were written by Kadar Khan. K.K. Shukla had written the screenplay of this movie.

Editing of this movie was done by Babubhai Thakkar.

It had Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Rajindernath, Faryal, Asrani, Master Chikkoo with Paintal, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Sulochana, Mumtaz Begum, Shetty, Viju Khote, Shamim, Surender Shetty, K.N. Singh, Sudhir, Bhagwan, MacMohan, Man Mohan, Habib, Jankidas, M. Rajan, Tiwari, Mohan Sherry, Hiralal, Rajan Haksar, Goga, Dalpat, Sapru and Kamran.

Lyrics were written by Gulshan Bawra and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Shailendra Singh, Kanchan, Mahesh Kumar and Aziz Nazan were the playback singers who had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Jaikumar conducted the music while Frank Fernand was the arranger and Babla was the assistant in music of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 02.01.1975.

In 1975 there were a ‘dozen’ of movies where Kalyanji-Anandji had composed the music for them. Here is the list;

Sno. Title Year Passed by Censor Board Lyricist Represented on the Blog</
1 Anokhaa 1975 02.04.1975 Indeewar, Sawan Kumar N
2 Apne Dushman 1975 19.11.1975 Verma Malik, Qamar Jalalabadi N

11 Uljhan 1975 31.10.1975 M.G. Hashmat Y
12 Zoro 1975 31.10.1975 Verma Malik

None of the songs of this movie “Rafoo Chakkar-1975” make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year. And only two compositions of Kalyanji-Anandji featured in that year’s list one from the previous years’ release ‘Haath Ki Safaai-1974’ i.e. ‘waadaa kar le sajnaa’ at number six and another from the movie ‘Dharmaatma-1975’ which was ‘tere chehre mein wo jaadu hai’ at number thirty-one.

The title song of ‘Uljhan-1975’ figured at number eleven in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1976’.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song which is sung by Aziz Nazan and Kanchan. On screen Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh are lip syncing the voices of Aziz Nazan and Kanchan whereas we can see Rajindernath, Paintal, Sulochana, Mumtaz Begum and many others in the picturization of this song.
Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Rajindernath and Paintal are performing ‘hippies’ in disguise (not for viewers) to get release of the captivated Sulochana and Mumtaz Begum.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Even this one – you might say. Aah yes, even this one. 🙂

This song from ‘Mahal’ in 1949, probably has the most recognized prelude across the entire history of Hindi Film Song. It has become the signature song of the earlier decades of Hindi cinema. No representative selection of Lata ji’s songs would ever be considered complete without it.

The all too familiar picturization – the girl on the swing then the empty swing, the lonely boat in the river, the stunningly beautiful features of Kamini (Madhubala) – the song and its images are now an unforgettable montage. There is a whole traditional lore that now accompanies this song, which has achieved a cult status over the decades.

‘Kadambari’ from 1975, is delicate love story of young hearts which has some unconventional twists to it. The film is based on the novel ‘Dharti Sagar te Sippiyan’ written by Amrita Pritam. The film is produced under the banner of Madhu Creation Picture Pvt Ltd, Bombay and is directed by HK Verma. The star cast lis listed as Shabana Azmi, Vijay Arora, Arpana Choudhary, Jeet Surendra, Ajeet Singh, Mona, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, and V Gopal etc.

The film has two songs. One is written by Amrita Pritam herself –“Ambar Ki Ek Paak Suraahi, Baadal Ka Ek Jaam Uthaakar”, composed by Ustad Vilayat Khan and sung by Asha Bhosle, and the second one is “Kyon Hum Tum Rahen Akele”, written by Geetanjali Singh and is composed and sung by Ajeet Singh.

As per the official listings, that is all the songs in this film. In fact both the songs are already present on our blog and in that sense the film is already yippeee’d.

But wait, here is the surprise that was mentioned in a message early morning today. The film carries this iconic song – a repeat version, which in of itself, has a significant importance. The song is not reused in its original form. It has been re-recorded in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurty, and reused in this film. The important point here is that this is the debut recording of a film song by Kavita Krishnamurty in Hindi films – her first song. And she gets to re-render this classic masterpiece.

The song appears in the film in two parts. One stanza is performed close to the beginning of the film. The occasion is the birthday party of Chetna (Shabana Azmi). A very close and dear friend, Amit (Vijay Arora) is still awaited to join. In this mood, Chetna sings one stanza of this song – “Deepak Bagair Kaise Parwaane Jal Rahe Hain“.

The second stanza – “Bhatki Huyi Jawaani. . .” appears sometime before the end of the film. This stanza appears in the background. The situation is that a chance meeting happens between Chetna and Sheetal (Aparna Chaudhry) after many years. Both are in passing through difficult time in life, both are single and both are awaiting the men they love to return to them. Sheetal is in love with Sudhir (Jeet Surendra), who is the brother of Chetna.

As Chetna departs from Sheetal’s home, the song starts to play, with the visual cutting back and forth between Sheetal at home, with paintbrush and canvas, and Chetna in a three wheeler heading back to her home. “Maanjhi Bagair Naiya Saahil Ko Dhoondhti Hai” – the two friends are like directionless boats at sea, searching for the shores.

A brief summary of the storyline,

Chetna and Amit are childhood friends, and are in love. Amit has a past that he once reveals to Chetna – that he is an illegitimate child. His mother was a victim of a violent assault, and the man responsible neither did own up, nor accepted the lady. Amit’s mother (Chand Usmani) single handedly brings up Amit and educates him to be a doctor. Amit reveals that he has such a reverence for his mother that he has taken a vow never to marry, not sure how the prospective addition to the family would treat his mother and whether she would understand the painful past in the family.

To Chetna it becomes clear that Amit will not marry. She is heartbroken, but then she promises herself she will never pursue him for matrimony. An interlude happens in between, and Chetna is now carrying Amit’s child. She hides this fact from everyone, including Amit, moves to Bombay from Delhi on the pretext of a job, stays there for a couple of years, has the child and then returns home with a story about an unfortunate family where the parents passed away leaving behind this newborn child. So she has adopted the child.

The parallel love saga of Sheetal and Sudhir is also not working out well, and the two are not seeing each other. Both are in pain, but both are restraining. Chetna meets with Sheetal and talks with her to coax her back and rebuild the relationship with Sudhir.

In the meantime, Chetna and Amit are also back to their normal exchanges. Amit’s mother, who has always liked Chetna, starts to help with taking care of the child. Some observations, some exchanges, something about the child and Amit’s mother comes to realize that the child’s father is Amit, her son. Situations progress to an amiable juncture where this fact gets revealed and is accepted by everybody. Both couples are back together once again.

It is a sensitively handled drama of love. There are no emotional overplays in the film. Every situation is underplayed and intelligently handled. Love stories are not always dependent on villains and stern parents to play out their saga. In some cases, it is the protagonists themselves who provide the interesting and unexpected turns to the story. ‘Kadambari’ is one such story.

The reuse of the two stanzas of this song are also very imaginative and very appropriately linked into the specific situations and story flow.

And yes, by the way, as per the ten year challenge chart published early morning today, ‘Kadambari’ made its debut 10 years ago today. Quite appropriately, we bring on this post, and add the repeat song to the list of songs of this film on our blog. The song has been suggested to me by Dear Avinash ji, who has also sent us both the set of lyrics – in Hindi and English.

A mysterious and dreary night of a palace from 1949 got transformed into a birthday party at a middle class home in Delhi in 1975. Watch, listen and enjoy.

Blog Day :

sone ko ham kalandar
aate hain bori bandar. . .

Yes, one of the very well known landmarks of Bombay (now Mumbai). And a very historic landmark at that. A lot has changed over the decades, but let us talk about the origins first.

As I searched for the meaning of the word Bori Bunder, I came across the following definition – a storage house for sacks; translating ‘bori’ as the sack made from jute thread, and ‘bunder’ identified as a variation of ‘bhandaar’ i.e. a storage house. This latter meaning is incorrect in my opinion. Some people who want to populate the Wikipedia and write with a modern mindset, probably are not aware that there are things called dictionaries for Hindi also. A quick check shows that ‘bunder’ (बंदर) is short form of ‘bundergaah’ (बन्दरगाह) which means a seaport, where ships come and stay for some time.

So anyways, coming back to the original thread. The claim for fame for Bori Bunder is that it is the first railway station built in India, and from where the first passenger train service was started on 16th April, 1853. This last Thursday, 16th April, the country celebrated the 167th anniversary or let us say, birthday of the Indian Railways as an organization. This post has been in the making good part of the past week. And so belated wishes to all, and especially to our fearless leader. 🙂

Yes, a lot has changed since that fateful date in 1853. The original Bori Bunder station was rebuilt in a much larger format. The construction started in 1878 by a railway company founded in London – Great Indian Peninsula Railway and it took 9 years for the work to complete on this magnificent Gothic style buiding. In 1888 It was inaugurated as, to honor the milestone of 50 years of the reign of Queent Victoria, the then monarch of England. The initials VT (for Victoria Terminus) are still in widespread use in the local parlance in Bombay. Then, more than a century later, in 1996, the then current state government in Maharashtra renamed this iconic heritage site as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, in the honor of the valiant Maratha leader and king Chhatrapati Shivaji, who established the Maratha Empire.

Ah but, I digress again. Let’s get back to the original thread. April 16th. The year is 1853. The first war of Independence (1857) is still four years hence. Time is 3.30 pm in the afternoon. A train waits on the Bori Bunder station – the boiler all steamed up, the smoke from the coal fires in the heart of the rising from the chimney of the locomotive, a band all ready to pom-pom, and a row of 21 cannons all set for the firing salute. The bands start to play. The 21 gun salute is initiated. There is a hurrah – approx 400 passengers on the train and an equal or more number on the platform. At 3.35, the crankshaft starts to chug, the train starts to move slowly, and picking up speed, slithers out of the station, all 14 carriages of it. The destination – a small town named Tanna, a distance of 21 miles north east from Bori Bunder. The train left at a fair clip of about 20 miles per hour, and completed the journey in just about one hour plus. And the history was recorded – that the first rail service in India, which carried passengers. Certainly a very significant red letter day in the history of India.

As I said, lot has changed. So has Tanna – it is now called Thane.

So, I did mention ‘passenger rail service’. Yes, the train tracks have been around in India since as early as 1835. Prior to the 1853 trip, all the train projects in India were related to haulage of construction material, timber and goods etc. Many of these earlier rail services were not even driven by locomotives, but in some places by horses, and even men. I garnered and edited the below summary from www.irfca.org which is the official website of the Indian Railways Fan Club – Ah yes we do have a fan club for railways – it was news to me too. 🙂

Whew, and this is just the highlights from the first three decades of railway establishment activity in the country. Covering the entire history just in highlights will take probably 8 to 10 such posts. I will pause here and present some current statistics. By the way, after the partition, GIPR was reorganized and packaged as the Central Railway of the Indian Railways.

Currently, the Indian Railway system is the fourth largest in the world today, with over 68,000 km of route coverage, with running track length of 87,040 kms. The total trackage including yards, sidings etc. stands at 113,993 kms. It is the largest single employer in the country with over thirteen lac employees. In terms of passenger volumes, I had read in an article some years back, that at any given point in time, 1% of our country’s population is riding in trains. That, my friends, is a massive number. By that measure, I am sure the Indian Railway system is the largest in the world.

The most important highlight for the members of this blog is that this blog manages the Mechanical Workshop of North East Railways, in Gorakhpur. 🙂 🙂

Coming to the song presented with this post. A brief background. The idea about this song was shared with me, during my search for the song “Khud Jiyo Auron Ko Bhi Jeene Do” which had been requested by Nahm ji. In course of my search, as I was checking the Films Division sources, another input that I got was that there are two songs which were also produced by Films Division, relating to Indian Railways. And possibly these songs are also in the voice of Rafi Sb. I checked with other friends in my circle, especially the Rafi Sb specialists. They confirmed that they have heard about these two songs but the songs themselves have not been traced so far. Later, when Ahsaan Bhai (of Hapur) passed on to me the song that Nahm ji had requested, he confirmed that Films Division does list two documentaries about Indian Railways which possibly could contain these two songs. But the documentaries themselves are not available.

I then turned to my friends in the Railways itself. Of course, Atul ji is the first person I sent request to help trace these documentaries. And the next person I talked with is Shri KL Pandey ji, the retired additional member of Rail Board. Readers and friends would be more familiar with him as the person behind the monumental work he has done to identify the classical raag basis of Hindi film songs. To date, he has cataloged more than 18 thousand Hindi film songs with complete raag analysis. He referred to his network inside the rail ministry, and then quickly sent me the link to the web site of the Indian Railways Fan Club. This fan club has unearthed the original Films Division documentaries, and has published them on its web site.

About this song. It turns out to be in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and not Rafi Sb. The songwriter and the music director is Prem Dhawan. It is a long song, almost 9 minutes in duration. I could not ascertain the date on this documentary. The Films Division archives page says the database is not available. My guess is that this documentary would have been made sometimes uin 1974-75 time frame.

The shutdown of the complete rail services is in progress currently, in step with the nationwide lockdown on account of the COVID-19 infection spread. Some parts of media have highlighted this as the first ever time that the railways have been shut down totally. However, this is not a true statement. Some parts of media have also recalled the one solitary occasion in the past, when a similar total shutdown had occurred.

In May of 1974, there was a total strike called by the coordination committee of all the trade unions of railway employees. The strike was led by the late George Fernandes, a senior leader of the Socialist party. That strike had lasted for 20 days from 8th to 27th May of 1974, that was the first and the biggest disruption of countrywide services of the railways. Never before, under any emergent circumstances had the complete railway system been shut down. I have memories of those hot days of the summer of 1974, when the rail service across the country had been shut down, and that was the major topic of discussion at home and in the newspapers. This documentary was most probably created just after this strike, so I guess it must have been in 1974 or 1975 at the latest.

A big salute to the entire Indian Railways – the lifeline of our country. That theme is highlighted in this song. The visuals are from more than four decades ago. But the intent and the message of this song remains unchanged. A rare and marathon song, Mahendra Kapoor at his typical best. Enjoy.

एक हैं वो जो देश की खातिर

लाखों रूपइए लगते हैं
इन पर खर्चा करने वाले
आप भी हैं

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 18
—————————————————————————

‘Do Jaasoos-1975’ was directed by Naresh Kumar for ‘Dimple Films, Bombay’. He was also the producer of this movie. It had Raj Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar, Prem Chopra, Aruna Irani, Kamal Kapoor, Manmohan Krishan, Ram Mohan, Asit Sen, Randhir, Jagdish Raj, Appi Umrani, Dulari, V. Gopal, Madhu Apte, Ratna, Moolchand, Ratan Gaurang, Bachan Singh and others.

This movie introduced Shailendra Singh and Bhavna Bhatt as an actor and it was mentioned in titles as ‘introducing Bobby singer…’ and ‘Teenager’ for Bhavna Bhatt respectively.

Farida Jalal, Alka, Sanjana, Sundar, Ram Avtaar made friendly appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by K.A. Narayan. Dialogues were written by Irshad and editing was done by Govind Dalwadi.

This movie had total seven songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri (five songs), Rajkavi Tulsi (one song) and one song was uncredited (as per HFGK Vol V 1971-1980).

Music for this movie was composed by Ravindra Jain.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.05.1975.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

“Do Jaasoos-1975” made its debut on the blog exactly ten years ago on this day (8 april 2010) and thus this movie completes its ten-year run on the blog and this movie is not yet YIPPEED till now despite getting introduced in the blog one decade ago :).

Total three songs were represented on the blog on 08.04.2010 including a song from this movie;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Purvaiyya leke chali meri naiyya Do Jaasoos-1975 04 of 07 songs posted
Meri jaan meri jaan kehna maano Do Chor-1972 All songs posted
Koyi nazraanaa le kar aaya hoon main Aan Milo Sajana-1970 All songs posted

I remember to have watched this movie ‘Do Jaasoos’ in my childhood with elders in the family but have forgotten it now. Two songs from this movie i.e. ‘Purvaiyya leke chali meri naiyya’ and ‘Do jaasoos karen mahsoos’ have remained imprinted in my memory and I have a big nostalgia for them. Later, when I grew up and started my collection of songs, I was on the look out for these songs, and my search for these songs ended much later.

The only other song from this movie that I vaguely remember was ‘chadh gayi chadh gayi angoor ki beti chadh gayi’ and I had decided to present it today and had also sought permission 🙂 from Mahesh ji (Mukesh ji’s greatest fan) but when I browsed through other songs of this movie I selected this one another cheerful, refreshing and pleasant song sung by Shailendra Singh and Lata Mangeshkar. This song is picturized on Shailendra Singh himself and on Bhavna Bhatt.

I don’t remember to have heard this song in the recent years, or even I feel I like I have not heard it earlier or may have forgotten it over the years.

(Note: – In the details of this movie in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980), HFGK mentions Ravindra Jain as co-lyricist for all songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri. However, no details/reason has been mentioned for this in the addendum/corrigendum in HFGK.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this.
Also, HFGK doesn’t mention lyricist name for the song ‘Happy new year’.)

Following songs from “Do Jaasoos-1975” have been posted on the blog till now :-

Song Posted On
Purvaiyya leke chali meri naiyya 08.04.2010
Saal mubaarak sahib jee 01.01.2012
Happy new year to you 01.01.2013
Do jaasoos karen mehsoos 02.06.2018

let us now enjoy this lovely duet song from “Do Jaasoos”(1975). Incidentally exactly the same singers and actors sing and lip sync this song who figured in the debut song of the movie ten years ago on the same day ! Needless to say that the lyricists and Music director also remain the same. 🙂

Blog Day: 4273 Post No.: 15505

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s is a “this happened to me” post. It was a “dream” more than a “dream come true”. A chance to see the Dream Girl in person on my last trip to Mumbai.

So this is what happened- we had just landed at Mumbai airport. I was very tired after a long day followed by a delayed-flight. I told my husband that today i am in no position to walk the distance to the baggage-claim and am planning to hop on to any buggy that ferries passengers and I did. There were two passengers already on that buggy and the lady who was sitting mentioned that the passenger who was in the buggy that overtook us was Hema Malini. And I was disappointed that I had missed having a glimpse of her.

When we reached the drop-off point, I saw that the Dream Girl had just got off and was being courteous with the airport staff and allowing selfies. Very hesitantly I waved out to her and she acknowledged. Then I hinted through action that I would like to come closer and also click pictures with her and she permitted. Then my husband clicked a picture and she said:- “you will not get a good pic from so far, come closer.” And we had one more click which I shared instantly with my children.

My son commented immediately “He has never seen me smile so brilliantly.” But my personal feeling was there can be no smile as Brilliant as that of the Dream Girl -Hema Malini. She still looks a dream, and carries herself so elegantly and majestically. She displayed no airs about being a star or MP i.e. Member of Parliament.

My husband mentioned to her that I was a huge fan of hers and occasionally write about her in the blog. To this she replied- “hope you don’t write anything uncomplimentary”, and I said “oh no, not at all. We write only about the songs and their related movies.” And she gave me her brilliant smile. But this is one encounter that will stay with me forever and I am yet to believe it happened to me.

Recently my husband asked me why I haven’t written about my experience and I said I was waiting for an occasion. Plus I was wondering which song of hers should go with the post, and on what occasion do I present it etc. Today seems to be a good enough occasion. The anniversary of the lyricist of the song.

It is the 18th anniversary of lyricist Anand Bakshi (21 July 1930 – 30 March 2002). He was born Bakshi Anand Prakash Vaid, in Rawalpindi, in modern day Pakistan. His family came to India in the aftermath of partition. Poetry writing was his hobby and when he joined the Indian Army he continued to write whenever time permitted.

All of this are well known facts about Anand Bakshi. We also know that simultaneously he tried marketing his songs to Mumbai film industry. He finally got discharged from the army in 1956 and tried to become a writer or singer but found his foothold as a lyrics writer and “Bhala Aadmi” in 1958 was his first released movie where he wrote four songs.

“Mehndi Lage Mere Haath” with music by Kalyanji Anandji was his first success. And then the songs which found a mark in the hearts and minds of cine-goers never stopped. His wish to sing in movies was fulfilled when he sand “Baaghon mein bahaar aayi” and another solo for “Mom Ki Gudiya” in 1972. he has sung few more songs but written close to 3500 and we have 1036 of them on the blog.

Coming back to today’s song. On my return from Mumbai, last weekend, I saw “Pratiggya”(1975) starring Hema Malini, Dharmendra and Ajit. I don’t remember seeing the movie at the time of its release. This was a movie produced by Dharmendra himself and had “main jat yamla pagla deewana” (the only song from the movie on the blog) which is still in the minds of the fans even after a lapse of 45 years.

Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music directors with whom Anand Bakshi collaborated in 302 movies. As I was writing this I came across the list of movies released in 1975, fifteen of which had songs written by Anand Bakshi, would like to know if it is a record of some kind.

The song with this post comes immediately after the song “jatt yamla pagla deewana” comes to a close. At the end of the song a drunk Ajit Singh (Dharmendra) falls into the river and dreams that Radha (Hema) is Sahibaan and he is Mirza.

So here is this love song where Hema looks a dream in the dream sequence and let us say Thank You to Anand Bakshi for leaving us this gem.


Song-Uthh neend se mirziya jaag jaa (Pratigya)(1975) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

uthh neend se mirziya jaag ja aa
teri sahibaan kare pukaar
tu ek akela bhaag jaa aa
tere peechhe ae ae ghudsawaar
vo aa gaye badla lene nu
haan aan aan
tere dushman mere veer
bedardi teer kamaan se ae ae
teri chhaati denge cheer
aisa lagta hai pyaar ke ae
nahin achche kuchh sanjog
humko mar ke bhi soniya aa aa aa
nahin milne denge log

sun sahibaan ?? yaqeen ke
rakh pyaar ki laaj jara
meri bakki(??) se daran farishte
te jatt se dare khuda
aane de unko saamne
hone de lahu-luhaan
chupchaap tamaasha dekh tu u u u u
tere sadke meri jaan
ye baat nahin wo jaante
mere dushman tere veer
jo maar sake mujhe soniye
ae ae ae ae
nahin bana abhi vo teer

o o o o o

Today (18 february 2020) is the birth anniversary of Jaan Nisaar Akhtar (18 February 1914 – 19 August 1976) as well as Khayyam (18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019). Curiously, Their birth anniversary as well as death anniversary fall on the same days (though in different years).

As a tribute to them, here is the third and final song from “Sandhya”(1975). This song is sung by Sulakshana Pandit. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. music is composed by Khayyam.

Only the audio of the song is available. It sounds like a mujra song to me. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this rare song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

ye dilwaale jo dil de kar

machhal jaayen jo aankhon mein hansi dekhen

hansi mein
gham ke pehloo
kis ne dekhe hain aen

hansi mein

woh aansoo kis ne dekhe hain

kabhi chaahein ke ras pee len
nazaaron ka
kabhi chaahein ke tan rach len
bahaaron ka
mehkte phool ye kab
todna chaahein
lapakte ae haath kaliyaan
todnaa aaa chaahein aen aen aen aen
jo shaakhein toot’ti hain
unn ke baazoo kis ne dekhe hain aen
jo shaakhein toot`ti hain
unn ke baazoo kis ne dekhe hain aen

husn-ae-shamma tera
sabki aankhon ka nashaa
pyaar parwaane karein
raqs deewaane karein
par tere dil ki lagi
koi samjha na kabhi
sab ki padti hai nazar
tere jalwon pe magar a a a
dhuaan ban kar
bikhar ke tere gesoo
kis ne dekhe hain
jo palkon par nahin aate
woh aansoo kis ne dekhe hain

I was aware that today is the birth anniversary of Pran, but I was not aware that today is his 100th birth anniversary !

It was on this day 100 years ago that Pran (12 February 1920 – 12 July 2013) was born.

Pran was born in Lahore and he made his debut in films in Lahore in early 1940s. There, he soon graduated to lead roles. In “Khaandaan”(1942), he had acted opposite Noorjehaan. . After partition, he came to Bombay where he was a nobody and so he had to start from scratch there.

It was in Bombay that Pran began to get the roles of a villain and it waas in these roles that he made his mark. He started his stint in Bombay with “Ziddi”(1948). He played villains but no two roles of his were same. In every movie he brought something new to his acting. And his acting was so convincing that ordinary movie goers dreaded and dipised his roles. Very few people in India named their sons as Pran. That is the kind of impression he had created in the minds of movie goers. 🙂

In 1960s, his dark roles gradually started to become less dark, with doses of kindness and comedy in them and a time came when he became a character artist, beginning from “Upkaar”(1967). The distributors of “Upkaar”(1967) were very nervous, unsure how this new role of Pran would be received by the moviegoers who were so used to see him as a dreaded villain. Fortunately, the movie was a big hit and Praan’s role as Malang Chaacha was loved by moviegoers.

Pran had got to sing very few songs on screen as a villain, but he started to get songs as a character artist. And this process started with “Upkaar”(1967) itself. The song Kasme waade pyaar wafa turned out to be a much loved song, much to the relief of Kalkyanji Anandji, who were dreading that their composition would flop because it was to be picturised on Pran !

Subsequently, Pran has figured in quite a few songs in Hindi movies. And these songs became surprise hits. For instance, “Zanjeer”(1973) song Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi became the most popular song of the year in Binaca geetmala ! “Kasauti”(1974) song, Ham bolega to bologe ki bolta hai was my favourite song durings its time. Same was the case with the song Daru ki bottle me sahab paani bharta hai from “Majboor”(1974).

On the occasion of the 100th birth anniversary of Pran, here is a song from “Zindaadil”(1975). The song is sung by Lata, Shailendra Singh and Mahendra Kapoor. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a get together song. It is lip synced by Rishi Kapoor, Zaahira, Neetu singh and Pran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. Incidentally, he too shares his birthday with Pran. So we take this opportunity to wish him a happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. Today also happens to be the wedding aniversary of our regular Nitin Shah. We wish him and his better half on this occasion.

Quite a lively and appropriate song for the occasion it is.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the date when we think of our favourite innovator of the 70s and 80s. The songs he composed for his debut, in the 1961 released “Chhote Nawaab”, were of a different flavour from the music he created in his later years. Of course, I don’t need to mention that today is Pachamda a.k.a R D Burman’s remembrance day.

It is 26 years since his passing and we, his fans, still talk of him in present tense. We do not tire of describing his love for experimenting with sounds- using a glass and spoon or broom and comb to create the opening note of a song; or asking an artist to gargle warm water to provide a dramatic effect to a scene. Asha Bhonsle has often mentioned how she had to practice breathing to sing “piya tu ab toh aaja”.

My quest for a song to go with this post lead me to the blog’s “List-of-songs-by-movies” page of the blog and I found that we have yiippeeeed all of RD’s initial movies viz: – Chhote Nawab, Bhoot Bangla, Teesra Kaun, Teesri Manzil, Pati Patni, Chandan ka palna, Bahaaron Ke Sapne, Abhilasha, Pyaar Ka Mausam, and Waaris i.e. his contribution to the world of HFM in the 60s has been fully represented on the blog.

Of the movies of the next decade, the more popular ones are yiippeeeed and that is a longer list which I recommend the readers to find for themselves. Same is the case with movies of the 80s where we find that many popular movies are yet to even debut on the blog and some are one or two songs away from being yyiippeeeed. That means we are spoiled for choice as to which song will go with the post. Then the next point to be considered is whether we want a song sung by Panchamda or just a song with just his music. Then I thought if I wanted a solo, duet- all male or male-female duet etc etc. The possible songs kept changing even as I wrote the post and finally, I did an akad-bakad-bambe-boo and landed on this song which will help the concerned movie attain Yiippeeeehood.

Following songs from the movie have been covered so far:

Sapna mera toot gaya
Hamne tumko dekha tumne hamko dekha aise
khullam khulla pyaar karenge hum donon
Ek main aur ek tu

For the story and personal thoughts connected with “Khel Khel Mein” a visit to the above posts will suffice. Today’s song is perfect for the weather North of India and many parts of the northern hemisphere of the world are currently experiencing- supremely cold winds and snow in many areas. I have seen this movie a number of times. If I am not wrong, other than at the time of its release in the 70s, only the mukhada and first antara are there in the movie. With this Khel Khel Mein has attained Yyiippeeeehood.

Let us get to the song without much ado. It is an RDB- Gulshan Bawra- Kishore Kumar- Asha Bhosle classic.


Song-Aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye (Khel Khel Mein)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Bawra, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

aaye lo pyaar ke din aaye

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

sang chalein toh manzil door nahin hai
jahaan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
ho ho ho
sang chale to manzil dur nahin hai
arre jahan bhi tu hai manzil meri wahin hai
yeh kaarvaan chalta rahe
chaahe jahaan jalta rahe
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re

aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare
iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
ho ho ho
yoon hi rahein nazar mein jawaan nazaare

iss vaadi mein gunje geet hamare
hansti rahe yeh zindagi
badhti rahe dil ki lagi

aaye lo pyar ke din aaye
mil jaane de apne saaye
wo bhi is tarah,
mil jayen jis tarah
lehron se lehrein jawaan hoke
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re,
aaja re aaja re
aaja re aaja re
aaye lo pyar ke din aaye

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 89 #
—————————————–

Welcome all to this post where once again I take you all back to the songs of seventies.

I originally wanted to present this post during the ‘Diwali festival’ since this song brings back my memories of ‘Diwali vacation’ days of my childhood. L liked this song as well as the other songs from this movie.

The song is from the ‘1975 movie ‘Warrant’. I was around seven years old then when the movie was released in 1975.

‘Warrant-1975’ had Dev Anand in lead role. And today 3rd December 2019 is the eighth ‘remembrance anniversary’ (26.09.1923-03.12.2011) of actor, producer, director Dev Anand.
We pay our tributes to him and will always be grateful for some of the great roles he played in the Hindi movies and also for the memorable and everlasting music which was a part of most of his movie.

Many new Dev Anand movies were getting released in those years when I was growing, but we were not getting to watch them then. Here when I say new movies means movies like ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’, ‘Ameer Ghareeb’, ‘Warrant’, ‘Jaaneman’, ‘Bullet’, ‘Kalaabaaz’, ‘Darling Darling’, ‘Sahib Bahadur’ etc.

Instead in our colony club’s weekly movie screening we were getting to watch many of his old ‘black and white’ movies, like ‘Sarhad’, ‘Bambai Ka Babu’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota hai’, ‘Pocketmaar’, ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Teen Deviyaan’ etc.
And some the movies like ‘Shareef Badmaash’ I watched in a ‘touring talkies’ may be in 1974-75, and I think I watched some of the movies like ‘Joshilaa’, ‘Des Pardes’ during end seventies or early eighties.

I was not a big fan of Dev Anand in my childhood. But my father was a very big fan of him and because of that I became aware of his old movies and songs from them.
And I vaguely remember to have watched ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’, ‘Heera Panna’, and ‘Chhupa Rustam’ with my father when I was a child.

Later on, I watched many of Dev Anand movies between 1981-1988 and after that. However, for this post I am restricting myself and the discussion to the decade 1971-1980 only. In all the movies which I watched later including his ‘coloured’ and ‘black & white’ movies I always liked his acting, dialogues deliveries and his style.

However, I am still to watch many of his movies from the seventies which weren’t successful but their music was always very good.

Let us have a look at the Dev Anand movies released from 1971-1980:

20 Lootmaar 1980 27.09.1980 Dev Anand Rajesh Roshan Amit Khanna

The songs from this movie ‘Warrant-1975’ are nostalgic for me since my childhood days, and even though I had never watched this movie until I watched it online this year on ‘Diwali’ day.

I think we watched more movies in the summer vacations than the Diwali vacations, naturally because summer vacations would be longer than Diwali vacations.

I always had a very big nostalgia for the famous three movies and their songs which I remember to have watched during the Diwali festival which were released in the same year in 1974.
These are ‘Bidaai’, ‘Roti’, and ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. I have vague memories of watching these movies with elders in the family or may be all of them viz. my grandmother (my grandfather was still against watching of movies), aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.
I have mentioned about this in my ‘song nostalgia’ on the blog here.

Later I read somewhere that these three movies were released on the same day during Diwali of that year i.e.1974 (14.10.1974, knowledgeable readers can please correct me if I am wrong). Though, now equipped with the information in HFGK if we see the dates of their being given the Censor Certificates are;
Bidaai-09.10.1974, Roti-11.10.1974 and Roti, Kapadaa Aur Makaan-13.09.1974.

And those days ‘hit’ movies always used to run over fifteen weeks to twenty-five weeks. So, people like us staying in near by towns from the city would get to watch the movies on holidays or during the vacations when all family members would visit the city where my grand parents were staying.

‘Warrant-1975’ was passed by Censor Board on 01.11.1975 and I think it was around ‘Diwali’ of that year that this movie must have hit the theatres. And that is why I am reminded of its’ song during ‘Diwali festival’ every year. (The songs from this movie were frequently played either on loud speakers or on radio then and that is why they must have made their way to my impressionable mind then.
I also remember the songs of ‘Ameer Ghareeb’ which were played frequently and I didn’t like them then and they were very irritating to me).

Well, all the three movies that I mentioned above viz. ‘Bidaai’, ‘Roti’, and ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’ were declared as hit or super hit movies of that time. However, in comparison to the above movies I was under impression that the today’s movie ‘Warrant-1975’, was not a successful one, but now sources mentioned that it was among the top ten grossers of that year.

‘Warrant-1975’ was directed by Pramod Chakravarty for N.P. International, Bombay.

It was produced by N.P. Singh.

Here is again one more movie which is dedicated to the ‘police forces’ in the country;

“Dedicated to those Officers and men of our police force who suffered and sacrificed their lives so that their countrymen can live in peace”

‘Warrant-1975’ had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Pran, Dara Singh, Ajit, Satish Kaul, Sulochana, Madan Puri, Jankidas, V.Gopal, Bunty, Aparna Choudhary, Kuljeet, Seema Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, Narbada Shankar, Praveen Paul, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti, Viju Khote, Lambha, Raja Saigal, Rajan Kumar, Manjit, Paul Sharma, Habib, Ujagar, Rajnish, Dhanna, Pehlwan, Birbal, Kirti Kumar, Devdas, Hercules, and many others.

Lalita Pawar, Joginder and Sujit Kumar make friendly appearance in this movie.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues were written by Vrajendra Gaur.
Editing of this movie was done by Narinder Arora.

The movie is an interesting movie to watch except few action scenes where Dev Anand is jumping over the buildings and like that are not easy to digest’😊. They could have been avoided and fight scene suitable to Dev Anand’s image would have been much better.
All the stars perform well to their character in the movie and the movie keeps one engaged till the end.
And most importantly music of this movie is very nice and all songs are very good.

The movie had four songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by R.D. Burman.
Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie where Kishore Kumar had two solos and one duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and other than the duet Lata Mangeshkar had sung one solo song in this movie.
(*HFGK also mentions the name of Asha Bhonsle in the singer’s list of this movie however movie title clearly mentions the name of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar only).

Only one song from this movie featured in the ‘annual ‘Binaca geetmala’ of 1975’ ranking at number twenty-ninth, and it improved by featuring two songs from this movie in the annual ‘Binaca geetmala of 1976 i.e. Ruk jaana o jaana at number twenty-three and ‘main tumse mohabbat karti hoon’ at number thirty-one.

And so, very rightly these two songs have already been posted on the blog and in accordance of their popularity too. 🙂

Song Posted on
Ruk jaana o jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana 18.09.2008
Main tumse mohabbat karti hoon 19.11.2014

Today’s song happens when Mehra (Pran) – Chief of Police and his team (read Jagdish Raj and others) are looking for Jailor Arun (Dev Anand) who is on the run with a murder accused. Police is having the information that Arun would be attending the marriage function of Pyara Singh (Dara Singh)’s sister Guddo (Seema Kapoor).

Pran plays the father of Dev Anand and is a Chief of the Police. Dev Anand being a Jailor also and son of the Police Chief is wanted by Police and is on the run. Jailor Arun had helped and eloped with the accused Dinesh and is sheltering him. The reason being that during a revolt by the prisoners and an attempt of ‘jail-break’ Dinesh saves the life of the Jailor.
Jailor (Dev Anand) wants to know that why a ‘murderer’ saved his life and when he could have run to avoid his hanging which was going to take place soon.
So our Jailor wants to know the ‘truth’ and also look for the ‘asli gunahgaar or qaatil’ of a scientist (Madan Puri), after the accused Dinesh finally breaks the ‘secret’ of his being wrongly ‘trapped’ in the ‘murder-case’ and real ‘qaatil’ and ‘culprits’ are some other people and not him.

The plot is interesting and the presentation is having all the ingredients of the ‘seventies’ movies and one can enjoy the movie and the ‘thrill’ of watching it.

Let us now enjoy the song where Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman perform in disguise (for the police and not for us – the viewers) hiding their real identity in the movie.

Zeenat Aman plays Rita Verma who is the daughter of the deceased scientist Madan Puri and is looking for the killer of her father to take revenge of her father’s death. (But here there is a ‘twist’, and I am leaving that for those interested and want to watch this movie) 😊

As mentioned above the song is composed by R.D. Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.
Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar have given their voices for Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman respectively in this energetic bnagra style dance song.

I hope you will like this song and enjoy it …:)

Today also happens to the birthday of our own Khyati Ben. We wish her a very happy birthday.
