Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was very popular in the 70s. We can hear it occasionally even now on the AIR’s Vividh Bharati. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist with RD Burman as the music director.

‘Bhanwar’ (1976) was directed by Bhappie Sonie and had a cast headed by Ashok Kumar, Randhir Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Aruna Irani, Asrani, Ranjeet, Kamini Kaushal, Nadira, Madan Puri etc. Two songs from this movie are already posted on this blog.

We are having the third song today to remember Parveen Babi – today on her 71st birthday. This beautiful lady was born in Junagadh and had her schooling in Ahmedabad. She made her debut opposite Salim Durrani (‘Charitra’, 1973) but her first success was opposite Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Majboor’ (1974). She had a good run at the box office and co-starred with all the heroes of her time. Her career spanned around 15/16 years from 1973 to 1988 with one movie releasing rather late in 1991. She led a lonely life after she stopped acting and withdrew from public eye. She passed away on 20th Jan, 2005.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi today with this song

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I came to know about actress Chhaaya Devi for the first time some time in 2011 when I found her name mentioned in Kidar Sharma’s autobiography, ‘The One And Lonely Kidar Sharma’ (2002) in the context of the shooting of the film ‘Vidyapati’ (1937). At that time, I thought her to be one of many female actors connected with New Theatres who had short acting career. For me, the only female actor of that time who mattered in Kolkata film industry was actor-singer Kanan Devi. What a wrong impression I had about Chhaya Devi when I came to know later that she had a long filmy career of over 5 decades – both in Bangla and Hindi films.

Being born in Bhagalpur and a part of her schooling done in Delhi, Chhaya Devi (1914-27/04/2001) was proficient in Hindi besides her mother tongue, Bengali. Sometime in early 1930s, her family shifted to Kolkata when she was put under the tutelage of K C Dey, the singer and music director. She was trained in Hindustani classical music and sang Khayal and Thumri on All India Radio. She was also trained in Kathak dance. It was on the recommendation of K C Dey that Chhaya Devi got her first bilingual film in Bengali and Hindi under the banner of New Theatres (NT), ‘Sonar Sansaar’/’Sunehra Sansaar’ (1936) which was directed by Devaki Bose.

Chhaya Devi’s next bilingual film for NT in Bengali and Hindi was ‘Vidyapati’ (1937) in which she did the role of Queen Laxmi, which brought her fame. Another NT film, ‘Abhinetri’/’Haar Jeet’ (1940) in which she acted did not find favour with the audience. Outside NT, she did ‘Chowranghee’ (1942) for Fazli Brothers.

After having worked in Kolkata in about 15 films, Chhaya Devi worked in Mumbai with her first film ‘Mera Gaon’ (1942) directed by Sarvottam Badami in which Jairaj was the hero. Probably, she came to Mumbai along with her mentor K C Dey who was the music director for the film. From her filmography, it appears that she had 2-year hiatus from the film industry (1943-45).

From the late 1950s onward, Chhaya Devi had already shifted to doing character roles in films. It is interesting to note that it is during this phase of her career that she became hyper active in doing Bengali films. For example, in the 1960s, she did around 40 films and in the 1970s, the figure was about 30. Her last film was ‘Tomar Rakte Amaar Sohag’ (1993). In all, she worked in about 120 films.

Some of the Hindi films in which Chhaya Devi worked were ‘Sunehra Sansaar’ (1936), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937), ‘Haar Jeet’ (1940), ‘Mera Gaon’ (1942),’Chowranghee’ (1942), ‘Shri Ramanujam’ (1943), ‘Uttara Abhimanyu’ (1946), ‘Ratnadeep’ (1951), ‘Mamta’ (1966), ‘Tu Hi Meri Zindagi’ (1965), ‘Zindagi Zindagi’ (1972), ‘Alaap’ (1977), ‘Rang Birangi’ (1983). These films were mostly bilingual or the remakes of Bengali films.

Recently, I have watched about half a dozen Bengali films directed by Tapan Sinha in which Chhaya Devi had acted in them. I have also watched a few of her other films. What I have realised with my limited exposure to some of her Bengali and Hindi films that Chhaya Devi was a versatile actress. If she was widow, Anandima in ‘Apnajan’ (1968) who is virtually a peacekeeper between two warring groups of unemployed youth, she is equally good in portraying the villainous looking but soft at heart madam (Baijee) in ‘Uttar Falguni’ (1963)/’Mamta’ (1966). Also, her portrayal of a dominating mother was effective in ‘Saat Paake Bandha’ (1963) which was remade in Hindi as ‘Khora Kaagaz’ (1974). In Hindi films, we have Lalita Pawar, Achala Sachdev, Meena Kumari doing their respective specialized roles very convincingly. In my view, Chhaya Devi was ‘three-in-one’ for Bengali films.

Chhaya Devi was not only a talented actress, she was also a good singer. She had the potential to becoming one of the leading singer-actors in Bengali film industry. Alas! It was not to be. While apart from talent, the luck factor plays an import role in making a film artist successful, I feel that in the case of Chhaya Devi, there was another factor which may have put a sort of speed breaker in the early part of her filmy career. And that factor was the successful emergence of actor-singer Kanan Devi, the first female super star of the Indian film industry.

When Chhaya Devi joined the Bengali film industry, Kanan Devi was already on a threshold of becoming a successful actor-singer. Kanan Devi’s stint with NT during 1937-41 and thereafter with M P Productions of P C Barua in 1942-48 did not give Chhaya Devi the much scope to show her histrionic. Incidentally, Chhaya Devi never got opportunity to worked with K L Saigal and also with P C Barua, an eminent director.

One of the Tapan Sinha’s films in which Chhaya Devi has portrayed the role of madam (Baijee) of a brothel was ‘Harmonium’ (1976). In this film, she sings two songs on herself. The film is available for viewing in 5 parts on a video sharing platform. The story in brief as I understood from the film is as under:

In this film, harmonium has been used as props. The harmonium which was first purchased by an aristocrat widower for her daughter for learning music has to be auctioned as the father dies and his estate manager forges his property paper to his name making the daughter orphaned. All through the harmonium’s journey through various section of the society, it is branded as ill luck to the family owning it.

The harmonium now goes to a middle-class home and then to a brothel. The harmonium is used for singing and dancing activities of the brothel. However, a murder takes place in the brothel forcing Baijee to leave the place with the harmonium. Finally, harmonium is bought by a Government officer for his daughter to learn music where the aristocrat’s orphaned daughter is the governess. After seeing the harmonium which was the same as the one bought by her aristocrat father, the governess is painfully reminded of her childhood days and is worried about the ill luck it may bring to the family. The film ends with a song which the governess is teaching to the daughter of Government officer.

As I have mentioned earlier, in this film, Chhaya Devi sings two songs one of which is in Hindi. I am presenting the song ‘armaan kuchh to dil mein tadapte hi rah gaya’. It is a short thumri of less than 2 minutes, written in a ghazal format. The name of the lyricist is not known though in one of the audio clips, the song is attributed to Gulzar saab. But I have not been able to get it confirmed from any other reliable sources. The song has been set to music by Tapan Sinha. I thought that at least the audio clip of SAREGAMA (HMV) may have full song. But it is also of the duration of less than 2 minutes.

This song is one more example of Chhaya Devi’s versatility in acting and singing. Note how nicely she uses the ‘harkat’ and ‘taan’ when she repeats the lines. Also note her gestures, ‘mudras’ and expressions. She may have learnt all these from her training in classical singing and kathak dance training.

“Kabeela”(1976) was produced and directed by Bholu Khosla for Khosla Enterprises, Bombay. The movie had Feroz Khan,Rekha,Bindu(special appearance),Kamini Kaushal, Imtiaz, Premnath, V.Gopal, Sudhir, Shyamkumar, Manju Bansal, Trilok Kapoor(special appearance), Dhumal, Surendranath, Hiralal, Habib, Dumasia, Nawab, Baby Sonia, Darshan, Rammi, Madan Verley, Jagadish Joshi, Sharad Saxena etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Today (10 october 2019) is the 65th birthday (DoB 10 october 1954) of Rekha. Daughter of Gemini Ganeshan and Pushpawalli, both well known movie actors themselves,

Rekha made her debut in Hindi movies with “Saawan Bhaadon”(1970). The movie was a hit. It was like a batsman hitting a century on debut.

Those were the days when Indian cricketers who scored century on debut failed to score another century in their career. A batsman called Gundappa Vishwanath had scored a century on debut at Kanpur in 1969. Like his predecessors, he struggled to score another century and people thought that his test career was doomed. It took him fourteen more tests and four more years before he scored his second test century in Bombay (in february 1973) and broke a big jinx for Indian test cricketers scoring a test century on debut. Subsequently, batsmen like Azharuddin, Saurav Ganguly, Sehwag, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma scored centuries on debut and subsequently scored more centuries.

Rekha, after her smashing debut lost her way. Movie critics of those days likened her to Faryal and commented that she was squandering her career like Faryal.

It was during 1978 that Rekha reinvented her in “Ghar”(1978). It was like an ugly duckling has transformed into a swan, with this movie.

And Rekha never looked back since.

On the occasion of her 65th birthday, here is a song from her ugly duckling days, when she was still struggling in Hindi film industry.

This song is sung by Lata. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a background song. Rekha, Feroz Khan.Prem Nath,Hira Lal, Kamini Kaushal and Sharat Saxena are visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

We take this opportunity to wish Rekha a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

Blog Day : 4046 Post No. : 15175

Am writing this post with a heavy heart.
I never expected that I’d be writing a post on this occasion so soon.
But if we’ve learnt anything about life in all our lives, it is that life is unpredictable.
For all the wonderful advancements that science has made, we still don’t know who will live how long. All we know is that everyone has to go some day.

As it turned out, Independence Day 2019 was the day that Vidya Sinha, well-known heroine of (mainly) the 1970s, had to leave us and go.

When I came across the news on Twitter this (15th August) afternoon, I felt immensely sad. She had passed away in the morning.

A few days earlier I had got the news that she was on ventilator, with lung problems. That news shocked me because I had no idea that she was unwell at all. I had not heard about her for years – and then suddenly, boom, you get news like this.

So today, when I read the news of her death, it was not entirely unexpected. But that doesn’t mean it made me any less sad.

Vidya Sinha was part of my childhood, part of my schooldays.

I’ve often said I am a 1970s boy – which means my school life spanned that decade.

It is also the decade that I have most nostalgic memories of – especially with regard to films and music. In the 1980s, I was busy with higher studies, career, moving places etc – life changed quite a bit. And of course, thereafter, other priorities took over.

So it is the 1970s, and my experiences of that decade, the films I watched, the songs I listened to, that have particularly fond memories for me.

And Vidya Sinha was certainly very much part of those fond memories. As it turned out, the main part of her career was totally in that decade. Though she acted in the 80s too (and even later), I will always associate her with the 1970s.

I will not discuss her personal life – to be honest, I don’t know much about it. I am sure there are many other sources that can, and will, provide this. I will myself learn about it only from them.

This post, written so soon after her passing away, is just to pay her my own personal tribute.

Many who have remarked on her death, have referred to her as having the “girl next door” image in her films. And that’s not entirely off the mark. In many of her films, this was the type of role she played. Both her best-known films, Rajnigandha (1974) and Chhoti Si Baat (1976) portrayed her as a woman who you could easily run into in Bombay at a bus stop, waiting for a BEST bus. Or working in an office. She had that unassuming, down-to-earth image about her.

And it was this image that endeared her to many at that time.

That was the time when Hema Malini was the reigning female superstar. Zeenat Aman, Neetu Singh and Raakhee were also popular. Rekha , though not yet the star she was to become, had her fair share of films. Parveen Babi and Reena Roy were beginning to make their mark. Then there were others, like Yogeeta Bali, Moushumi Chatterjee and Sulakshana Pandit, who had their fans too.

Many of these heroines comfortably fitted the requirement of the typical mid-1970s masala film. Stories often had a plot around smuggling, or (if village-based) dacoits. There’d be song-and-dance, a car (or horse) chase, “disguises” – the usual masala stuff. Music was often loud, costumes even louder.

Then you also had the “art” films of the mid-70s. Dominated by Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil.

But there was also room for simple, wholesome entertainment – without the above-mentioned elements. Films of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee specialized in this.

And this is where Vidya Sinha fitted in very comfortably.

She didn’t have a very prolific, or long, career – certainly not by standards of other heroines. She also didn’t have a very wide variety of roles, unlike many other heroines.

But one thing for sure. In almost every film she did, she had a role that you felt was just tailormade for her. Ok, she wasn’t a star like Hema Malini, but the roles themselves needed an understated, non-star type, actor. And no one did that better than Vidya. (In later years, Deepti Naval would do similar roles).

Vidya doesn’t quite get credit for her acting – but I think it could also be because I always felt she didn’t “act”. She just seemed to be natural for her role – you didn’t even notice her “acting”.

In those days, when I was in school, Hema, being the reigning superstar, was the favourite for many of my friends. In trying to be “hatke” :-), I preferred Vidya, Moushumi, Leena C, even Sulakshana. Their films usually had better storylines, I felt.

I’ve seen most of Vidya’s films of the time – she didn’t act in too many.
The ones that I remember are Rajnigandha (1974), Chhoti Si Baat (1976), Karm (1977), Mukti (1977), Inkaar (1977), Pati Patni Aur Woh (1978), Tumhaare Liye (1978) and Atithee (1978).

I have very fond memories of those times, and of her – which is why it hit harder to hear about her illness, and her death.

She might not be physically around anymore, but her films will remain with us. And memories of her films. I thank her for these at least.

Moving on the song for today, it is from a film Mera Jeevan (1976).

Now this is a film I do not recall seeing. But when I checked the songs, all of them seemed familiar. That’s possibly because at that time, I used to get to listen to a lot of songs, without having any clue about the film. I’d get to hear the song on radio, or through my classmates in school. Or I might even have seen the film at that time, but have no recall of it.

There are 4 songs in this film – of which 3 are already posted. The title song sung by Kishore Kumar “mera jeevan kuchh kaam na aaya” is quite well-known, as is “tera jogi aaya” by Rafisaab. The other song posted already is “Koi mere haathon mein mehendi lagaa de”, sung by Asha Bhosle. I’ve heard this song too in my schooldays.

The song that remains to be posted is “ye sooraj ye chanda ye taare”, sung by Asha Bhosle. From the clip it appears that Vidya Sinha is a teacher at a school, and singing this song to her students.

Lyrics are by MG Hashmat, probably best-known for “mera jeevan koraa kaagaz”. At least, that’s the first time I heard of him.

The song “ye sooraj ye chanda ye taare” is philosophical – talking primarily about life.

Which, given the context of this post, is most apt.

A few lines struck me as particularly poignant

Jeevan khilona hai
Kitna salona hai
Sukh dukh ke aansoo ka
Haar phirona hai
Isi khilone se
Khel rachaana hai
Kya leke aaye the
Kya leke jaana hai

So very true.

We come into this world with nothing, and with nothing we will one day return.

All we leave behind are a legacy, if at all, and memories.

Go well, Vidya Sinha.

Thank you for the memories.

May your soul rest in peace.

Om Shanti.

PS-With this philosophical song, all the songs of “Mera Jeewan”(1976) have been covered in the blog and this movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

“Shankar Shambhu”(1976) was directed by Chaand for A K Movies Bombay. The movie had Feroz Khan, Vinod Khanna, Sulakshana Pandit, Bindu, Jagdeep, Ajeet, Anwar Hussain, Suhir, Sulochana, Jayshree T, Shantanu, Jankidas, Viju Khote, Kishore Sinha etc with guest appearances by Pradeep Kumar and Lalita Pawar.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Shankar Shambhu”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Bindu and Vinod Khanna.

It appears to be a rare song in the sense that it is one of rare occasions when Sahir Ludhianvi must have penned lyrics for Kalyanji Anandji.

This song appears to be a forerunner of the “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”(1978) mujra song “Salaam e ishq meri jaan zara kubool kar le”.


Song-Mera dil churaa kar na aankhen chura (Shankar Shambhu)(1976) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 83 # Remembering Feroz Khan#
—————————————————————————–——

Welcome all to this post of today, where, once again, I am taking you back to a song from the Seventies from a movie which is part of ‘nostalgia’ of my growing years.

In this blog we fondly discuss about ‘songs which bring back memories’. Many of my posts would fall into this ‘category’ as I have tried to share them with the memories of my childhood years and growing years thereafter.

During the ‘blog’s ten thousandth song –milestone’ I had written a post here and mentioned about few songs which for me bring back memories of my childhood and /or growing years.
At that time, I had listed many ‘prominent songs’ for me falling in ‘songs that brings back memories’ category. I had also noted that in future I may come with a second list of such songs which I get reminded time to time due to the connected memories of those years and they surface from vague and dormant memories.

Recently when I was going through this ‘first list’ of mine and noting down the songs which are yet to make it to the blog, I noticed that now very few songs from this list of mine are yet to be posted on the blog. One of these songs is the song being covered today.

And the reason for posting this song today is, it is picturised on actor Feroz Khan whom we fondly remember today on his tenth ‘Remembrance Day’.
(This song also has a female version which is picturised on actress Rekha).

Feroz Khan (25 September 1939 – 27 April 2009), born Zulfikar Ali Shah Khan, was born in Bangalore and he also breath his last in the city of Bangalore on 27th April 2009.

He came to Mumbai (Bombay then) and made his debut in Hindi movies with the movie ‘Didi’ in 1960. Initially he got smaller roles or roles in the second lead. After completing almost a decade in the Hindi Film Industry he ventured into production and direction with the movie ‘Apraadh-1972’.

Though I have not watched many of his movies, but whatever movies I had watched of him have left an indelible impression on my mind since my childhood.

And whenever the Hindi movies of the seventies will be discussed Feroz Khan’s name is going to be surely there. Because he has a special place carved for him in the midst of the so many actors of that decade and his ‘aura’ is something that cannot be forgotten by the ‘fans of the seventies’.

I never forgot the movie ‘Khotey Sikkey-1974’ which I must have watched with my elders earlier and later may be on TV. And for me it is this movie which I remembered most associated with his name. I had also shared a song from this movie when I joined this blog as a lyrics contributor.

Then I remember watching ‘Nagin-1976’, ‘Shankar Shambhu-1976’, ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine-1976’, ‘Kabeela-1976’ and ‘Khoon Aur Paani-1981’ which I clearly remember of watching with my brothers and cousins may be in vacations. I think we also watched ‘Kaala Sona-1975’ and ‘Chunaoti-1979-80’ later, but I don’t remember it now.

‘Qurbaani-1980’ was a big hit in those years and all family watched it together.

Later I watched ‘Safar-191’, ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan-1970’ on TV. ‘Dharmatma-1975’ with friends on VCR (during the VCR days).
In between these years, around 1986-87 I watched ‘Aarzoo-1965’ in theatres in its re-re-released in end eighties.

After that I watched ‘Yalgaar-1992’ and ‘Dayaawan-1988’ in parts (on TV).

I watched ‘Apradh-1972’ again in 2008-2009 by buying its VCD because it had one my favourite songs in it i.e. ‘tum miley pyaar se’.

However I am yet watch his ‘Upaasna-1967’ and ‘Mela-1971’ which I think I should watch sometime in the future.

I will not go into more details about him and thus I will come to the today’s song thanking Feroz Khan for all the entertainment and those lovely memories of his movies he has given to us. His ‘cow boy’ image and specially his ‘dialogue deliveries’ riding on a horse 🙂 are his special features that I am always reminded of with his ‘steering eyes’:) (or may be, because of his image in my mind I am thinking that he might have spent more time sitting on the Horse’s back going by nature of roles he played in the majority of the movies) 🙂

Today’s movie ‘Kabeela-1976’ was directed by Bolu Khosla for ‘Khosla Enterprises, Bombay’. It was a ‘costume drama’ movie. Bolu Khosla was also the producer of this movie.

It had Feroz Khan, Rekha, Kamini Kaushal, Imtiaz, Premnath, V. Gopal, Sudhir, Shyam Kumar, Manju Bansal, Dhoomal, Surendranath, Heeralal, Habib, Baby Soniya, Darshan, Sharad Saxena and others. Bindu and Trilok Kapoor make a Special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by A.K. Agarwal. Screenplay was written by Jayant Dharmadhikari. Akhtar Romani wrote the dialogues of this movie and editing was done by Waman Bhonsle.

This movie had four songs, including one multiple version song (which is being posted today). All its songs were written by Farooque Qaisar and composed to music by Kalyanji-Anandji. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mukesh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.10.1976.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie which since years has been in my memory and it is a ‘catchy’ composition too. This song is in two versions male and female and sung respectively by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

I could not find a separate video for the female version, but we have audio version for our listening pleasure. The female version is picturised on Rekha and male version is picturised on Feroz Khan and who we can see performing in his ‘dynamic-dashing’:) style on this song.

By the way this song ranked at number twenty-five in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1977’.
With this song ‘Kabeela-1976 (or Qabeela-1976’) makes a debut on the blog !!

(I also had the opportunity to introduce ‘Shankar -Shambhu-1976’ on the blog. ‘Naagin-1976’ – I had already shared a song.
And as noted earlier I think this year ‘1976’ had the most impact on my mind relating to songs and movies of that year when I was around 8 years old 🙂 )

Let us enjoy today’s song now.

“Aarambh”(1976) was directed by Gyan Kumar for Prerna Pictures, Calcutta. This obscure social movie had Rakesh Pandey, Rama Vij, Kishore Kapoor, Bipin Gupta, Rohin Kumar, Kalyan Chatterji, Chandrakala, M L Daga, Trilochan Jha, Nanu, B P Tiwari, Madan Sudan, Ravi Yagnik, Surendra Gupta, Tej Bahadur, C R Tenani, Naval Joshi, Akhtar, Gayatri Mukherji, Laxmi Chaaya etc with Master Piyush (new discovery) and Pallavi Mehta (guest role) etc in it.

This movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.
Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been covered so far:-

Here is the fourth and final song from “Aarambh”(1976) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Aarti Mukherji. Shri Shalabh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anand Shankar.

Only the audio of the song is available. Assuing that Rama Vij was the leading lady of the movie, my guess is that this song was picturised on her (playing a wronged lady) standing near a piano (being played by the hero) where she is blessing the hero despite being wronged. 🙂

Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get one word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, all the songs in the movie are now covered and “Aarambh”(1976) joins the list of movies that are YIPPIED in the blog. This movie becomes the 150th movie starting with the letter “A” that has been YIPPIED in the blog. 🙂


Song-Khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe (Aarambh)(1976) Singer-Aarti Mukherji, Lyrics-Shri Shalabh, MD-Anand Shankar

Lyrics

khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe
zindagi pyaar ke saanche mein sada dhalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe

manzilen khud hi miley raah se teri aakar
manzilen khud hi miley raah se teri aakar
tere jazbaat e tamanna ki raushni paa kar
teri azmat mein
azmat mein
nihaan rasme wafa milti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe
khush rahe ae
khush rahe tu

zindagi phoolon bhari geeton bhari ho teri ee
zindagi phoolon bhari geeton bhari ho teri
bas yahi ek dua tere liye hai meri
tere gulshan mein kali kali
khwaabon mein pali khilti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe
zindagi pyaar ke saanche mein sada dhalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu ke khushi ki shama jalti rahe ae
khush rahe tu
khush rahe ae
khush rahe tu

“Mera Jeewan”(1976) was directed by Vindu Shukla for Shreejee International, Bombay. This “social” movie had Vidya Sinha, Ambika Johar, Dushyant, Satyen Kappu, Jairaj, Shivraj, Viju Khote, Dinesh Hingoo, Padma Rani, Arvind Rathod, Baby Guddi, Sunita, Shekhar Purohit, Uday Kumar, Ranveer Raj, Jugnu, Anand Bihari,Harbans Pape, Pardesi, Amrit Patel, Madhavi, Master Ajay, Baby Sabiha etc. A K Hangal (friendly appearance) and Sulochana, Veena and Harindranath Chattopadhyay (special appearances) also figured in the movie.

The movie had four songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past, including the title song which was the most popular song from the movie.

When I checked up on the four songs of this movie, I realised that all the four songs were quite popular during its time before they were forgotten.

Here is the third song from “Mera Jeewan”(1976) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. M G Hashmat is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song is picturised on Vidya Sinha as a “man mein laddoo phootna” genre of song. 🙂

I have not been able to get one word in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blank/ suggest correction as applicable.


Song-Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de (Mera Jeewan)(1976) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-M G Hashmat, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
aaj bole re lagan
jisko kehte hain dulhan
koi kaise sajaa de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de

aaj meri aankhon mein chamke pyaar ki jyoti
seep ke man mein muskaaye armaanon ke moti
khushiyon ke moti
pyaar ki jyoti
khushiyon ke moti
pyaar ki jyoti
aaj meri aankhon mein chamke
pyaar ki jyoti
aaj bole mera man
jisko kehte hain sajan
koi us’se milaa de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de

aaj suni kaanon ne mere
dil ki shehnaai
tod ke pinjra panchhi bhaaga
tooti tanhaai
suni shehnaai
tooti tanhaai
suni shehnaai
tooti tanhaai
aaj suni kaanon ne mere
dil ki shehnaai
jaise udti hai pawan
aur jhhoome re gagan
koi kaise uda de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
aaj bole re lagan
jisko kehte hain dulhan
koi kaise sajaa de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
