‘Shatranj Ke Khilaadi’ (1977) was Satyajit Ray’s first and only Hindi feature film which was based on a short-story by the same name written by Munshi Premchand. The film was produced by Suresh Jindal under the banner of Devki Chitra. From the low budget black and white Bangla films, Satyajit Ray charted his way into high budget Hindi colour film with multi-star cast with Mumbai and Kolkata based actors and also actors from the West. The actors included Sanjeev Kumar, Saeed Jaffrey, Amjad Khan, Shabana Azmi, Farida Jalal, Victor Bannerji, Richard Attenborough, Tom Alter, Barry John, Farooque Shaikh, David Abraham, Veena etc.

After successfully producing his first Hindi film ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), Producer, Suresh Jindal in a chance meeting with Satyajit Ray sometime in 1974 requested him to direct for him a Hindi film, or an English film. If not, he is prepared to produce a Bengali film for him to direct. Satyajit Ray’s reaction to his request was positive as he said that he himself was thinking of directing a Hindi film. This opened their partnership of making ‘Shatranj Ke Khilaadi’ (1977).

From 1974 to 1976, the time was spent mostly on a detailed research on the subject including meetings with scholars in India and the UK. Both Satyajit Ray and Suresh Jindal visited various places in India and abroad which had connection with the story of the film for checking the authenticity of the historical events and also for the selection of authentic props. The visits included havelis of Lucknow and Jaipur, thakur baris of North Calcutta (Kolkata), museums and libraries of Hyderabad and London etc. The shooting of the film was delayed by few months due to non-availability of Sanjeev Kumar for health reasons. The film’s shooting finally commenced in December 1976 and wound up by June 1977. For details about the making of this film, one can read the book ‘My Adventures with Satyajit Ray : The Making of Shatranj Ke Khiladi’ by Suresh Jindal (Harper Collins, 2017).

I had covered in detail the story of the film while discussing one of the songs from the film, Kaanha main tose haari. Just to recapitulate in short, the story is set in the background of the impending take over of Awadh by the British troops as they feel that the Nawab of Awadh, Wajid Ali Shah is busier with singing, dancing and poetry reciting sessions than governing his kingdom. On the other hand, two of the aristocrats of Nawab are unmindful of what is in store for Awadh and of their families, as they are addicted to playing chess. At the end of film, Satyajit Roy has highlighted situational irony in which while Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, in order to avoid bloodshed, abdicates Awadh to Britishers, the chess playing aristocrats continue to play chess at a far-off place from their houses in order to avoid calls from Nawab to fight the Britisher troops. In the event, a bloody fight ensues between the two on a trivial chess move in which they are prepared to kill each other.

The film had 5 songs of which two songs have been covered in the Blog. Of the remaining 3 songs, 2 songs are partially used in the film although the record versions of them are longer. The remaining one song ‘hindola jhoole shyam’ which I am presenting here was deleted from the film before its the release. The song is rendered by Calcutta Youth Choir (as a chorus) which is set to music by Satyajit Ray. The lyrics are written by Wajid Ali Shah. Incidentally, Calcutta Youth Choir was set in 1958 by Ruma Guha Thakurta along with Salil Chowdhury and Satyajit Ray.

The long prelude and the last interlude music with short taraana would indicate that this song has been written for Kathak dance performance or for a musical play on Krishna. The verses were written by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah. The last stanza has some Urdu words. Some of the Urdu poets like Nazeer Akbaradbadi and Hasrat Mohani have written many poems in praise of the beauty of Lord Krishna and on his divine love for Radha in the mixed language of Urdu and Awadhi/Brij.

I was eager to know as to where this deleted song would have appeared in the film. I had read that Nawab Wajid Ali Shah had written plays about Lord Krishna and his raasleela with Radha in which, sometime he himself used to perform as Krishna. With this background, I guess this song would have fitted in the beginning of the film, during which a short Kathak dance is being performed by Wajid Ali Shah (Amjad Khan) as Lord Krishan along with Radha and other dancers.

The song is not only pleasing to ears but also soothing to the mind.

“Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was directed by Lekh Tandon for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prem Kishan, Rameshwari (new find), Shyamali, Madan Puri, Ifthikhar, Shivraj, Sundar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Nandlal Sharma, Pardesi, Ratan Gauraang, Chandu Allahabadi, Jagdeep, Leela Mishra, Savita Bajaj, Piloo Wadia, Rashmi, Veena Kapoor, Shashikala, Suresh Rokde, Deepak Puri, Tajendra Gupta etc in it.

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

I have fond memories of watching this movie by bunking my college classes. 🙂 Not once but five times. That is how much I liked this movie after I watched it the first time. 🙂

Rameshwari, debutant leading lady was the biggest reason for the successt of the movie. This remained her first and last hit as a leading lady. Today few moviegoers remember her but those days she was a big name and she took exception when she was mistaken for Rekha, who was a nobody in comparison. 🙂

Songs of “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) played a big role in attracting moviegoers to the movie halls. All songs were nice to listen to.

Here is the seventh song from “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) to appear in the blog. It is sung by Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist and composer.

The song is picturised as a family get together song where Rameshwari, playing Kammo is asked to sing a song. Like an aadarsh Bhartiya naari that she portrays in the movie, she of course sings nice songs that never fails to wins over her audience. 🙂


Song-Ab ranjish e khushi se bahaar o khizaan se kya (Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Hemlata, Ravindra Jain, Ravindra Jain

ab ranjish e khushi se
bahaar o khizaan se kya aa
ab ranjish e khushi se
bahaar o khizaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain
hamko jahaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

unka khayaal unki talab unki aarzoo u
unka khayaal unki talab unki aarzoo u
jis dil mein ho woh maange kisi meharbaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

hamne charaag rakh diya toofaan ke saamne ae
hamne charaag rakh diya toofaan ke saamne ae
peechhe hatega ishq kisi imtihaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

koyi chale chale na chale
ham to chal pade ae
koyi chale chale na chale
ham to chal pade ae
manzil ki jisko dhun ho
usey kaarvaan se kya aa
manzil ki jisko dhun ho

ye baat sochne ki hai
wo hoke meharbaan aan
yeh baat sochne ki hai
wo hoke meharbaan aan
poochhenge haal e dil to
kahenge jubaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain
ham ko jhaan se kya
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-20) – Song No. 1
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this first post under the ‘Blog 10-Year Challenge’ in this year “2020”, where we will be going back to the movies represented on the blog in the year “2010”.

Today we begin our journey in this year with a not-so-popular but yet a nice hummable song from the movie ‘Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977’. I had planned the post in the month of December’2019 itself when I had browsed for the movies represented in the month of January’2010.

However, I had not selected the song for the post then. The song that readily came to my mind was the ‘title song’ of this movie and since it had not been posted I thought I would present this one. But when I listened to the other song remaining from this movie, I like it and presenting the same today, since it also talks of a ‘journey’ and a ‘continuing journey’ without reaching the ‘destination’.😊

We, on the blog, have already entered in the thirteenth ‘calendar year’ for the blog since its inception in 2008, and we have still a long way to go and many new ‘topics’ to be explored and this song perfectly sets the tune for another entertaining musical year ahead …

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier;

Song Posted on
mashrique-se-jo-nikle-maghrib-mein-kho-gaye 07.01.2010
I-am-in-love-you-are-in-love 18.07.2013
mere-gorey-gaalon-ka 20.03.2014

This movie had total five songs in it and the two remaining songs to be posted are;
‘nahin dekha kabhi pehle … main aashiq hoon bahaaron ka’
‘tera dil kya kehta hai mera dil to ye kehta hai’

(and if the listing of songs given in HFGK Vol V is in correct order of appearance of the songs in this movie, the above two songs remaining are the first and the last song appearing in this movie).

Looking back ten years back i.e. on 07.10.2010 the following two movies were represented on the blog ten years back (in ascending order of presentation).

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Gudiya hamse roothi rahogi Dosti-1964 All songs covered on the blog
Mashrique se jo aaye … Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977 03 of 05 songs posted so far

“Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977” was directed by J. Omprakash for ‘Shiv Kala Mandir’, Bombay. S.K. Chand was its Chief Assistant Director.

“Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977” was produced by K.K. Talwar and Raj Bathija. It had Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Danny Dengongpa with Asrani and Om Prakash. Sulochana makes a special appearance in this movie. Its supporting cast includes Rehman, Preeti Ganguly, Pinchoo Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Julie and Nadira.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Ram Kelkar. Its dialogues were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Dave and Prakash Dave.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.11.1977.

This movie had total five songs in it and only Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar gave their voices to the songs in this movie where Lata Mangeshkar had one solo song, Kishore Kumar had three solo songs and there was only one duet sung by them.

Lyrics for all the five songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to appear on the blog.

I think that, other than the title song of this movie and the song ‘I am in love’, the other songs were not very much popular, though I find the today’s song a nice hummable and an enjoying one. (also, I do not remember to have listened to the today’s song earlier before taking it for the presentation in this post).

I have not watched this movie so I cannot say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …

Let us now enjoy this song …

(The songs is picturized on Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman and many others are seen in the picturization of this song which is picturized on foreign locations).

“Parvarish”(1977) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films, Bombay. This movie had Shammi Kpoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Nitu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Kadar Khan, Amjad Khan, Dev Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Hina Kausar, Master Ratan, Master Tito, Chand Usmani, Sheikh, Bhushan Tiwari, Viju Khote, Tom Alter, Yusuf, Meena, Baby Shalu, Moolchand etc in it.

This movie had six songs in it. Four of these 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 and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised on Shabana Azmi and Nitu Singh who play pickpockets on the streets of Bombay.While Nitu Singh was a natural in such a role, Shabana Azmi was a total misfit in this role. So movie makers rightly avoided goving her similar non serious roles in future.

“Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was directed by Lekh Tandon for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prem Kishan, Rameshwari (new find), Shyamali, Madan Puri, Ifthikhar, Shivraj, Sundar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Nandlal Sharma, Pardesi, Ratan Gauraang, Chandu Allahabadi, Jagdeep, Leela Mishra, Savita Bajaj, Piloo Wadia, Rashmi, Veena Kapoor, Shashikala, Suresh Rokde, Deepak Puri, Tajendra Gupta etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

I have written many things about this movie while discussing the previous songs. This was a movie whose name initially put me off. But when I found this movie going on and on and refusing to get replaces from the movie hall where it was being shown, then I decided to watch it. And I fel in love with this movie. So much so that I watched the movie again and again- for a total of five times.

Rameshwari the new find was the person behind the success of this movie. This movie no longer remained just a movie. Moviewatchers identified with Rameshwari and fell in love with her. That is the kind of magic her maiden appearance created at the box office.

It was the first time that I watched a Rajshree Productions movie. With my expectations raised sky high, I went to watch the next Rajshree Productions movie called “Paheli”(1977) and it turned out to be a big let down as far as I was concerned.

And when I watched the next Rameshwari movie, called “Iqraar” (1979), this movie as well as Rameshwari turned out to be huge disappointment.

Songs of “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) were a big reason for the success of the movie. All songs were nice to listen to.

Here is the sixth song from “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) to appear in the blog. It is sung by Hemlata whose voice sounded sweet, divine and inspired when singing uner the baton of Ravindra Jain. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist and composer.

THe movie does not seem to be available online. The song was picturised on Rameshwari.


Song-Jahaan prem ka paawan diyara jare (Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
ho o ho ho
ho o o o ho
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare
jahaan bolen bachan sab neeh bhare
usi angna mein
usi dvaare pe
beete hamra bhi jeevan raam kare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

kaun nadi ki ham hain lahar
kaho aake mila re kinaara
jog likhe bin sambhav naahin
aisa milan hamaara
in charnon se ab ghar na pare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

jis ka naahin apna koi
jo keh de use apna re
us ki karuna us ki daya ka
utre na karaj utaare
jiya chaahe wahin jiyen wahin pe maren
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae
jahaan bolen bachan sab neeh bhare
usi angna mein
usi dvaare pe
beete hamra bhi
jeevan raam kare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

“Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) an archtypically Manmohan Desai directed movie, reminds me of an indulgent parent who, when he comes back home to his little ones brings them lots and lot of goodies that the kids were so eagerly looking forward to. The kids just would not have enough of the goodies.

The movie, a multistarrer, which was a new fashion in India, after the success of “Sholay”(1975), boasted a who is who of stars of those days- Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Shabana azmi, Neetu Singh were the three romantic pairs. Pran and Nirupa Roy play the parents. Villains are Jeewan, Ranjeet, Yusuf Khan. Other characters in the movie include Mukri, Nazeer Hussain, Kamal Kapoor, Pratima Devi etc. Even Helen makes a cameo appearance.

Most people who are into HFM have already watched this movie. That too multiple times. If you are an Indian, then this movie must have influences you in one way or the other. This movie has scenes, dialogues, coincidences etc that have become stuff of legends. They also are constant source of jokes, memes, amusing anecdotes etc.

This movie had seven songs. Six songs from this movie have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been discussed in the past :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 My name is Anthony Gonsalves 3040 28-Sep-10
2 Parda hai parda 9189 23-Dec-13
3 Hamko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen 11111 9-May-15
4 Anhoni ko honi kar de honi ko anhoni 11963 31-Mar-16
4 Khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin 14896 26-Feb-19
5 Shirdi waale Saibaba aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali 15199 4-Sep-19

The discussions of these songs in the movie were no less fun than the fun that we may have had while watching this movie.

This song made its debut in the blog with the song My name is Anthony Gonsalves . The date was 29 september 2010. It was a guest post by a guest poster who had discovered the blog just a few months ago. Santosh Ojha, the contributor, was a diehard Amitabh Bachchan fan and he had watched this movie in Nagpur during its first run just days before his class X examination, not once but thrice !

His observations on the movie scenes and story, alongwith his school day experiences, makes this writeup a great fun to read.
In fact, this song itself has an amusing beginning:

You see the whole country of this system
is juxtapositioned by the hemoglobin in the atmosphere ,
because you are a sophisticated rhetorician
intoxicated by the exuberance of your own verbosity

🙂

The next song was covered three years later in 2013. This too was a guest post, and it was by Peevesie’s mom, who may have watched this movie a few million times.

The third song writeup from this movie turned out to be a very very special occasion for the blog. This song was the only song in history that has the voices of Mukesh, Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata together. This song was the post number 11111 for the blog and it was written by our own Sudhir Jee. It was a century post for him as well as for all the abovementioned legendary singer. It was a century post for Laxmikant Pyarelal as well.

Four more songs have been covered after that. Writeup for these songs were by Peevesie’s mom. Four writeups out of six ! It just shown how much the songs of this movie mean to her !

What is the only song left to be covered ? It is yet another fun song viz “Tayyab Ali Pyaar ka dushman hay haay”. This song is sung by Rafi and chorus, with a few words by Mukri. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a song where Akbar (Rishi Kapoor) is seen heckling Tayyab Ali (Mukri), the father of Salma (Neetu Singh), for coming in the way of their love.

This song, like the other songs of this movie, is best enjoyed while watching the movie in a movie hall in 1970s. The response of the public, especially the coin throwing front staller junta (appropriately names chawanni chaap janta 🙂 ) is an experience that can no longer be savoured. This experience has become extinct with time.

Incidentally, unlike Santosh Ojha, I myself had not watched this movie during its first run. My movie watching spree began in 1978, and I watched this movie during its second run, which is not the same as watching it during its maiden run, of course.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

We are into September. The month has begun with on an auspicious note with the arrival of the elephant-headed god, Lord Ganesh or Gajanan or Vighneshwar or Ekdanta or Vinayak or Ganpati- different names for the same god. For which Atulji had posted a “Ganpati Bappa Morya” song. The birthday list for September began with the ‘pouring out of a true fan’s feelings for his idol post’ on Sadhana by Sudhirji.

Here is my post to wish my favourite actor on turning a year older. He has been out of the country for the last year undergoing treatment for the dreaded C. Though out of the country he has been in public eye with constant reports of how he is recovering and that he is expected back in the country in the not-so-distant future. I am wishing Rishi Raj Kapoor on his 67th birthday. May he return to the pink of health and continue what he does best – give us lots of entertaining movies like his last few – “Mulk” (2018) directed by Anubhav Sinha which was poles apart from his “102 Not Out” directed by Umesh Shukla. He played varied characters in “Kapoor and Sons” (2016), “Besharam” (2013), “Patiala House” (2011), “Agneepath” (2012), “Do Dooni Char” (2010), “Student of the year” (2012), – post his decision in 1999 to stop trying to play the romantic lead we have seen Chintu (as his is fondly called) in different avatars. He must be the only actor from the 70s and 80s (other than Amitabh of course) to be considered for playing near-central characters which are not necessarily young.

Now for a few words on today’s song

It is from a 42-year-old movie. It has been on the air-waves and all the music channels of television ever since. And it falls right in the category of “how come this song was not posted earlier?”. But then we will find many of Chintu’s songs eligible for this category and our blog will always have fodder for posting :). The last time I heard this on radio was, may be last week, when I was driving to the airport in Mumbai (my brother was dropping me) or driving home from the airport with my son after touch down at Bangalore (that means twice on the same day). That is how frequently the song gets played. Then on entering the house I found my husband surfing channels and again this song. And next day morning doordarshan played it on their weekly musical “Rangoli”. So that made it 4 times in 24 hours and am I complaining about the number of repeats? No, not at all!! Why? Because I like the elements that the maker of the movie has put into the song. In fact, the maker is known for putting that kind of elements in the whole movie and almost all his movies.

Here I am talking of Shri Manmohan Desai and his habit of showing us incredible, illogical and unbelievable things in his movies, and how the audiences have lapped those up with eyes closed. Remember the blood donation scene in “Amar Akbar Anthony”? The song sequence in “Mard” has a tiger escorting the mother towards a boat so that she can cross to the other bank where her son is singing in the temple. Unforgettable.

Today’s song has the eternal mother – Nirupa Roy – escaping from the clutches of Jeevan and Ranjeet (they were a team in the 70s). She is shown running towards an open-air temple where we have Chintu singing a qawwali in praise of Sai Baba. The mother comes in crawling (tired after all the running and falls that she has had enroute) moves slowly towards the Baba’s idol unseen by the devotees present in the temple. Just as Chintu sings the line – “tu bichhadon ko milaaye, bujhe deepak jalaaye” we see two tiny specks of jyot (light of the diyas) emerge from the Baba’s eyes and enter the lady’s eyes – here I must mention that the lady is blind too, a result of an accident at the start of the movie. And now she can see three kids beckoning her – on the Baba’s smiling face. Such chamatkaars (magical happening) used to be Manmohan Desai’s forte. The song or qawwali comes to a close and she declares to whoever is ready to hear that “ab mein dekh sakti hoon” (I have my vision back); I pity all the eye doctors of that time, I am sure they would have prayed to Baba that they don’t go out of business. 🙂

So today on the occasion of Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor’s birthday let us wish him health and happiness through this chamatkaari song that was written by Anand Bakshi, sung by Mohd. Rafi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Incidentally 3rd September was the 80th birthday of Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma – Pyarelal of the music director duo Laxmi-Pyare. Let us wish him too health and happiness.

Blog Day : 4028 Post No. : 15144

Today, 29th July, is the 66 birthday for Anoop Jalota, the renowned singer of classical and semi-classical music. Known as the Bhajan Samrat, his forte is in the arena of religious bhajans and devotional songs. Here is wishing him many many happy returns of this day.

Anoop was born this day in 1953, in Nainital. His late father, Purushottam Das Jalota has also been a renowned singer of devotional songs himself. Anoop got his initial education in classical music at the Bhatkhande Music Institute in Lucknow. He started his singing career as a chorus singer at All India Radio. Over the years, he has sung popular sugam sangeet and ghazals also. But he has not been as famous and successful in that area. He started singing devotional songs and for that, he has become very popular. He was honored with the award of Padam Shri in 2012.

His songs in Hindi films are quite limited, although I do find two songs by him already on our blog. Today’s song is from the 1977 film ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba’. This song is written by Pandurang Dixit and its music is also composed by him. On screen, this song is performed by Manmohan Krishan.

The film is produced by the Sarla Charities Trust, and is directed by Ashok V Bhushan. It is a screen adaptation of the biographical book on Sai Baba by the late Shri Govindrao Dhabolkar. The cast of actors includes Sudhir Dalvi in the title role, Manmohan Krishan, Raj Mehra, B M Vyas, Usha Chauhan, Beerbal, Nazeer Kashmiri, C S Dubey, Gurbachan Singh, Jyotsana Kirpekar, Preetam Balley, Vatsala Deshmukh, Ratanmala Pandit, Bhawna, Master Teeto, and Master Raju. The film has many special and guest appearances, viz., Rajendra Kumar, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Premnath, Manoj Kumar, Madan Puri, Sachin, Dhiraj Kumar, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Satish, and Kuljeet.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Some are traditional, and the remaining are penned by Dev Krishan, Manoj Kumar and Pandurang Dixit. The latter is also the music director  for this film. One song of this film is already showcased here on our blog.

In this song, the on screen performer is Manmohan Krishan. He is leading a few others, including some police personnel and taking them to the place where Sai Baba resides.

This song was recorded in 1977, when Anoop would have been just 24 years of age. One can make out the difference in the quality of the voice – in this song and his singing 40 years hence, in the current period.

The Bhajan itself is written and composed very beautifully. Exhorting the listener to meditate on the universality of the message of brotherhood, and the underlying unity and commonalities of all the religions and beliefs. That is the message of Sai Baba – ‘Sab Ka Maalik Ek’ – that the Supreme One is the One and same for all people.

Song – Sumar Manwa. . . Sumar Re Panchtatva Suvichaar  (Shirdi Ke Sai Baba) (1977) Singer – Anup Jalota, Lyrics – Pandurang Dixit, MD – Pandurang Dixit

Blog Day :

3990 Post No. : 15083

I have so many things to write about that sometimes they (those things crowding my thoughts) don’t let me sleep at night. Wish I had the habit of writing the diary. . . those “dear diary“, outpourings would have helped as a sounding board, more effectively than this blog.

Once upon a time I did start a daily diary, but that did not develop to the level of habit. Then many years ago a colleague advised in all seriousness that I should write down the daily thoughts, clearly impressed with the way I was able to warm to any topic and give a one minute lecture to an assorted audience or whoever was around me. I wasn’t really enamoured by that particular lady and I have never used her as a sounding board or even a ‘complaint register’. I tried to avoid talking about much of anything with her or say only as much as necessary, but she has a knack of introducing topics into conversation and getting people to open up.

I am not too choosy about whom I befriend, but if I develop a dislike of someone, then it gets fixed in my attitude for all times. I have tried very hard to get rid of this fallacy, and try to give second, third chances to people for redeeming themselves. I do this sort of exercise of finding excuses for people, whom I consider my friends, whenever they don’t behave as expected, on regular basis. This positivity of trying to always look at the brighter side, is good within a limit.

Till recently, I used to get very irritated with my parents same habit. So much so that I wrote in one of the posts, that my Mom looks at all things with her colour tinted glasses or ‘rangeen chashma’. This way she can see others in whichever colour she wants. Unn ko duniya bahut rangeen dikhaayi deti hai. In the sense that they live by the maxim that “hum achche to duniya achchi”.

I know the colleague who advised me to write down the thoughts etc., meant well. But I am unable to warm towards her till date, despite her being very close to a very close friend. With her natural ability and curiosity I suspect that she is able to gather all the information. Good for her, if she is happy then I don’t mind. We do meet occasionally as colleagues and also in common friend circles, but maybe I will be able to think of her also as a friend in future.

This lady also had some more well meaning advice to offer, on the topic of improving my daughter s complexion. This was many years ago. I was able to take in that advice from one ear, and throw it out of the other. Really she was simpleton, like my own mother and others. I hope that by now she has learnt differently.

Last week , Sudhir sir posted the song “Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain”, in the repeat songs series. Some of the comments in the ‘Gumnaam’ song posts asked to know the meaning of those words of the mukhda. “Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain” expresses an appeal against a deep rooted malice/prejudice in the society, which is blatant in the belief that only white is beautiful and black is not. Obviously the same malice is still prevalent if one goes by the no. of products available in the market for skin fairness. Nothing wrong if people want to make their skin fairer by these products, but the fact remains, this improvement or whatever, will only be skin deep. Nothing to do with core of the soul inside the skin. Food for thought.

Here is a song from the film ‘Minoo’ (1977), dealing with the same contrast of gora and kaala. The ‘Gumnaam’ song, took a funny route and this song in the voice of Antara Chaudhary is riding on a child’s innocence and a black goat named Kaali. Salil Chaudhari is the music director, and the lyrics are written by Yogesh. There was also a popular song in this film “Teri Galiyon Mein Hum Aaye”, which is already posted.

Today’s song used to play a lot on the radio when the movie was new. My younger brother was born in 1976, and my elder sister used to sing this carrying our baby brother along.

Oh. . . there are many such stories and happenings, some related and others not related to film songs. I just hope I am able to pen them down and share with all my fellow bloggers and fans of Hindi Film music.

Hullo to all Atulwaale

Majrooh Sultanpuri was an Urdu poet and also a lyricist or song writer for Bollywood movies. He was born in 1919 in Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh as Asrar ul Hassan Khan to a father who was a police officer. His father, though, a police officer, was not too keen on his son receiving English education and Majrooh was therefore sent for traditional ‘Madrasa education’ which led to his obtaining the qualification first of Dars-e-Nizami – a seven-year course which concentrated on religious affairs along with proficiency in Arabic and Persian- and then the certificate of Alim.(Personally, I don’t know what Alim is). He thereafter joined Lucknow’s Takmeel-ut-Tib College of Unani. He was a struggling Hakim when he happened to recite one of his ghazals at a mushaira in Sultanpur. The ghazal was a hit with the audience and Majrooh decided to drop his fledgling medical practice and began writing poetry seriously. Soon he was a ‘regular’ at mushairas and a “shagird” i.e. disciple of the then top name in Urdu Mushairas viz: Jigar Moradabadi.

While Majrooh is popular as a film lyricist and is widely known in that capacity, be it known that he also created one of the best-known verses of Urdu poetry, “Main akela hee chala tha janibe manzil magar, log saath aate gaye aur carvan banta gaya!” (I set off alone towards the destination but people joined in and soon it became a caravan!) Majrooh Saab (I think that is how an elder should be addressed) visited Bombay (now Mumbai) to attend a Mushaira where producer A.R. Kardar was part of the audience. He contacted Majroohsaab through Jigar Moradabadi and offered him a chance to write for movies which Majroohsaab refused as he didn’t think highly of them. But he relented on Jigar Moradabadi’s persuasion. Kardar then took him to Naushadsaab who tested whether Majrooh, gave him a tune and asked him to write something to fit that and Majrooh returned with “Jab Usne Gesu Bikhraye, Badal Aaye Jhoom Ke”; Naushad was impressed and they worked together in Majrooh’s first movie “Shahjehan” in 1946.So that then was Majrooh’s entry into movies. His work lasted well into the next millennium with movies that had songs penned by him releasing as late as 2004 – a forgettable masala movie “Ek se Badkar Ek” had “aankhon hi aankhon mein yeh kya baat ho gayi” which was penned by Majroohsaab. And I must say the song was good inspite of the movie.

A small trivia here: 2011 had a movie called “Soundtrack” which had my favourite Majrooh song of all times “ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke” and the makers of this movie were decent enough to give credit to Laxmi-Pyare and Majroohsaab.

In his long innings in Bollywood he had associated with the father S D Burman from “Paying Guest” (or even before that) to “Abhimaan” and with the son R D Burman we had albums like “Caravan” “Yaadon Ki Baraat”“Teesri Manzil” and all the etceteras that anyone cares to add. Majroohsaab also had association with another father -son pair. Can anyone forget “rahe na rahe hum mehka karenge” or “ab kya misaal doon mein tumhare shabab ki” with Roshan’s music? His work with Roshan’s son Rajesh Roshan is nothing less and equally popular. If I am not wrong the association started with “Kunwara Baap” in 1974 and went on with works like “Udhar ka Sindoor’’ “Jay Vijay’’ “Inkaar’’ –remember ’’tu mungda mein gud ki dali’’ was from the pen of Majroohsaab, unbelievable no? the 2001 release “Mujhe meri biwi se bachaao” was the last time Rajesh Roshan got to work with Majroohsaab. Of course, we cannot forget all the other albums the two have associated for in the intervening years – “Doosra Aadmi” “Janta Hawaldaar” “Ek baap chhe bete” etc.

“Doosra Aadmi” was a movie that was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Ramesh Talwar. This was Ramesh Talwar’s debut as director. It was written by Raju Saigal and Sagar Sarhadi and had a cast of Rakhee, Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Parikshat Sahni, Satyen Kappu, Deven Verma, Gita Siddharth, Sheetal etc.

Atulji has posted the first song from this movie in 2008. He had given a brief of the story in that post. He followed it up with a post that had Deven Verma singing a beautiful song.

Here is the next song from this movie which was requested by someone called Bharati in the comments section to the song “Kya Mausam hai”. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It is more of a background song played at a house-party and Rakhee and Rishi waltz to the tune in a dimly lit room with Parikshat Sahni looking not-so-approvingly as he is the only person who knows that Rakhee is looking for Shashi Kapoor in Rishi Kapoor.

Today on the occasion of Majrooh saab’s remembrance day and Rajesh Roshan’s 64th birthday a song they gave us in 1977 i.e. 42 years back.

Lyrics

Aaa
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

hamaari tamanna tumhen pyaar karna
hamein aur karna kya
hamein aur karna kya
mohabbat mein ruswa
huye bhi toh kya hai
duniya se darna kya

aage koyi ilzaam nahin hai
chaahat ke ilzaam ke baad
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthaayen jaam ke baad
aao manaayen

yeh aalam hai jaise
udda jaa raha hoon
tumhein leke baahon mein
tumhein leke baahon mein

tumhaare labon se
hamaare labon tak
nahin koyi raahon mein
kaise koyi
abb dil ko sambhaale
itne haseen paighaam ke baad

aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen
