Hullo Atuldom

Day 1 of Sharad Navratr. Ashwin Navratr. Various names for the same festival, various ways to celebrate. I have received pictures of ‘Ghatta-sthapana’, ‘Devi Shailputri’, and of course the South Indian ‘Bomma Kolu’ (or Golu depending on your mother tongue). There is a lot of beauty in the manner in which we decorate our Gods and enjoy the festival. There are special offerings, poojas, archanas, bhajans and BHOJANS too (going by the name ‘Bhog’). Then there is the ever so colour raas garba in Western India, Gujarat and Maharashtra in particular. (May not be organised on a grand scale this year, as we are still worried about the consequences of the Pandemic. Grandeur can wait)

Here is a Devi Maa bhajan to kick-off the festivites. It is from the 1978 release ‘Khoon Ki Pukaar’, the synposis of which is there in this post. The movie was directed by Ramesh Ahuja for Tahir Hussain’s TV Films. It had songs penned by Hasrat Jaipuri and Gauhar Kanpuri and music director was Bappi Lahiri. Today’s song is sung by Mohd. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar and on-screen, both, Pran and Vinod Khanna lip-sync to Rafisaab’s voice and Aruna Irani sings in Lata didi’s voice. We can also see Shabana Azmi and Reeta Bhaduri seated among the devotees of the temple.

As per what I have seen a few years back, this song is used by Amjad Khan (Daku Zaalim Singh) to send a message to Daku Sher Singh (VK); who is recovering under the care of pujari Baba (ex. Dr. Bhushan played by Pran); through Bijli (Aruna Irani). That should make viewers understand what Aruna Irani and VK are exchanging in sign language (‘ishaaron ishaaron mein’ sounds better, I suppose)

With this we also remember the ever oh-so-handsome and oh-so-good looking Vinod Khanna for his birth anniversary which was yesterday. He would have been only 75.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 129 # A tribute to Parveen Babi #
——————————————-—-

Today 4th April 2021 is the sixty-seventh birth anniversary of actress Parveen Babi(04.04.1954 – 20.01.2005). She would have been sixty-six years old today had she been alive. She left this world at the age of fifty-one years old only on 20th January’2005.

She started her career in Hindi Films with the movie ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer-1974’ though her movie ‘Charitra-1973’ was released earlier before ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’. She went on to act in many movies with leading actors of the ‘seventies’ and was held successful actress like other leading heroines of those years.
I am not going into her detailed biography and filmography in this article. I leave it for another article in the future. But I would like to mention here that I do not remember a single movie of Parveen Babi that I watched and had not liked her presence on the screen 😊 The memories of those movies are unforgettable.

In this article today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Aahutee (or Aahuti)-1978’. This a ‘beautiful reminder’ of those years was played on ‘Vividh Bharati’ couple of weeks back. As I listened to it, I find this song familiar but I had forgotten the movie name. Later on, I checked and found the movie name and I remembered to have watched this movie with my brothers and cousins in the summer vacations of that year ‘1978’. I do not remember the movie now, but I remember that it was story of ‘three brothers.’ In those years all such movies having stories woven around ‘three brothers’ and ‘lost and found’ stories would easily attract me and my younger brothers as we were three siblings (all males) to our parents. ‘Aahuti’ was one such movie among many others that used to be produced in those ‘multi-starrer’ days. This movie had couple of songs which brings back memories for me.

‘Aahuti’ was directed by Ashok Bhushan for ‘Basho Productions, Bombay’. It had Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev, Kamini Kaushal, Ajit, Madan Puri, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Raj Mehra, Kuljeet, Dulari, Birbal, Rajan Kapoor, Ranjana Sachdev, Preeti Ganguly, Ranbeer Raj, Pal Sharma, Darshan Arora, Dharmveer, Master Romi, Master Rajesh, Master Ravi and others.

Pradeep Kumar makes a ‘special appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.04.1978.

This movie had six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Following is the list of songs this movie had;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-1) Mahendra Kapoor, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
02 Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-2) Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Manhar, chorus
03 Kaash aisaa hota Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 04.08.2016
04 Saathi mere saathi rut aati jaati Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 22.07.2018
05 Naukri sau ki hazaar ki Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
06 Jugni ik ladki ka naam Lata Mangeshkar, chorus Being discussed today

Only two songs from the above have been earlier posted on the blog.

As I mentioned above, two songs from this movie which brings back memories for me are ‘Is duniya mein kaun sawaare sab ke bigde kaam’ and ‘Naukri sau ki hazaar ki’, the later one has been shared long back but yet to be posted.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus and on screen it is performed by Parveen Babi and many other female artists. Also seen in the picturization of this song are Shashi Kapoor, Krishan Dhawan and others. Today’s song is beautiful reminder of the ‘Parveen Babi’ days at the box office. And what to say about Lata Mangeshkar’s singing? … just listen and enjoy this song 😊

The situation hen this song takes place can be guessed by any one after watching this song (an archtypical song situation of those years) 😊

let us now listen and enjoy today’s song based on Punjabi folk music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal …

Our tributes to Parveen Babi!

Most of us are familiar with this lovely song ‘ham dono milke kaaghaz pe dil ke chitthi likhenge, jawaab aayegaa’ from the movie ‘Tumhaari Kasam-1978’. This song used to be played frequently on radio when I was growing up(going by the release date of the movie I was just above ten years of age then).

I like this song very much and so when I prepared my list of songs that bring back memories this was by default included in my list. But what about other songs from this movie? I think they were not notable songs and were easily forgotten?

I was not aware about the other songs from this movie until this article when I looked upon to present a song from this movie on the blog.

‘Tumhaari Kasam-1978’ had made its debut on the blog well in the initial days of the blog i.e., on 04.10.2008.
So, today after a gap of ’12 years,05 months, and twenty-one days (‘4555’ days – including 24.03.2021) we are adding the second song of this movie. And I have deliberately chosen a lesser-known song from this movie sung by Preeti Sagar and lip synced on screen by Master Rajoo.

“Tumhaari Kasam-1978” was directed by Ravi Chopra for ‘Associated Films & Finance Corporation’. It was produced by C.V.K. Shastry.

This movie had Jeetendra, Navin Nischol, Moushumi Chatterjee, Padmini Kapila, Master Rajoo, Vimal Ahuja, Jagdish Raj, Prem Sagar, Achala Sachdev, Narbada Shankar, Lina Das, Ranjeet Sood, Anand Balraj, R.S. Chopra, Master Shaka and others. Komila Virk, Alka, Roopesh Kumar and Pradeep Kumar make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Tikam. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Kamleshwar.
Pran Mehra was the Chief Editor for this movie and Editing was done by S.B. Mane with Pradeep Mehra as his assistant.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 09.03.1978.

This movie had four songs (including one two-part song) written by Anand Bakshi. Music was composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle, Preeti Sagar and Kishore Kumar give their voices to the songs in this movie.

here is a brief about this movie taken from ‘Wikipedia’;

Vidya (Moushumi Chatterjee) and Raja (Raju Shrestha) live in poverty. They get separated due to certain circumstances. Vidya starts working at Anand’s (Jeetendra) house as a maid. Raja is forced to beg for a local gang. While Vidya is attending to her chores, the alcoholic, Anand, tries to molest her. She escapes but is unfortunately hit by a speeding vehicle driven by Sunil Verma (Navin Nischol). This accident makes her visually impaired. The guilt-ridden Anand wants to apologize to Vidya. Will she accept the apology? Will Vidya reunite with her brother?

here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ye naa hogaa, nahin hoga hoga…ham donon milke kaaghaz pe dil ke Asha Bhonsle, Mukesh 04.10.2008
02 Mera naam Raaja, main bheekh maangu kaise Preeti Sagar Being presented today
03 Hmm, zu zu … main husn ka hoon deewaanaa Kishore Kumar
04 Aye mast hawaa ye to bataa kis waqt yahaan Lata Mangeshkar
05 Ae ladki pyaar karegi, tu mera aitbaar karegi

(in two parts) Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar
*HFGK included the ‘title music track’ of this movie as the sixth soundtrack*

I have not watched this movie and only thing I associate this movie name is its ‘Asha-Mukesh’ duet so far. Also, I think this movie was not successful on the box office.

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

Let us now listen to today’s song which also has the ‘signature touch’ of Rajesh Roshan. As mentioned above Master Rajoo is lip-syncing for Preeti Sagar’s voice and also seen in the picturization of the song are Anand Balraj, Moushumi Chatterjee and many others.


Song-Mera naam Raaja main bheekh maangoon kaise (Tumhaari Kasam)(1978) Singer-Preeti Sagar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

mera naam raaja
main bheekh maangoon kaise

bolo jiyun kaise
mera naam raaja aa
mera naam raaja
main bheekh maangoon kaise

din bhar bhaagoon
raat ko jaagoon
maa se sune loriyaan
bachche mere jaise
bheekh main naa maangoon to
bolo jiyun kaise

bheekh main inse maangoon
qismat ko ye Manzoor thha

bheekh main naa maangoon to
bolo jiyun kaise
mera naam raaja aa

Hullo Atuldom

“Khoon Ka Badla Khoon” (1978) had songs by the hit team of S.H. Bihari- O.P.Nayyar; the team that gave us “kajra mohabbatwala”, “haule haule chalo more saajna”, taarif karoon kya uski”, “bahut shukriya badi meherbaani” and many more such hits in the ’60s.

“KKBK” had Vani Jairam, Pushpa Pagdhare, Uttara Kelkar, Mohd. Rafi for playback singers. It was directed by K. Parvez a.k.a Kalpataru and produced by Ratan Mohan. It had seven or eight songs of which the blog has only one song.

The cast included Bindu, Asha Sachdev, Mahendra Sandhu, Vinod Khanna, Ajit, Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Iftekar, Imtiaz Khan, Sudhir etc. Seeing that the movie had so many actresses who could dance, makes it clear why OPN used three different female playback singers.

“KKBK” seems to be one of the movies where Asha Sachdev must have been the main female protagonist or to put it simple -the heroine. Also the poster of the movie suggests that Vinod Khanna may have been paired with Bindu
Here is the next song from ‘KKBK’ on the occasion of Omkar Prasad Nayyar’s 14th remembrance day. It is sung by Vani Jairam. It was and is frequently heard on radio. Vani Jairam had four solos in the movie of which this is the most popular. I found a very short video which suggests that Asha Sachdev is out to woo Mahedra Sandhu who seems to be some kind of under-cover officer. Also the video shows Ajit giving instructions to his ‘No 9’ etc as was the norm in all movies featuring Ajit in that period of time.

The poster that is accompanying the longer version of the song, as is available on youtube shows a rather smart and handsome Vinod Khanna, trying to shoot some one even as he is on the run.
The brief synopsis of the film that is available on IMDB.com says this: The story-line of the film revolves around a Crime Branch’s Officer and a courageous girl from another agency, they are appointed to catch a criminal gang who leaves a trade mark at their every crime scene.

So, that means it was a run-of-the-mill masala thriller that should have been entertaining for the masses. I would love to know how it fared at the box-office.
This is song number 184 of S.H. Bihari and 484 of O P Nayyar who should be thanked for the legacy that is there for us to enjoy

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 117 #Happy Birthday Reena Roy
———————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1978’ movie ‘Karmayogi’. I was longing to share a song from this movie and launch this movie on the blog since long (actually for many years now 😊).

However, the song I had earlier planned to share is not today’s song, but a different song from this movie.

Today’s song was heard frequently on radio and loudspeakers in those days when I was about ten and half years old (considering the date of censor certificate of this movie).

The reason for introducing this song today here on the blog is to celebrate and wish yesteryears beautiful actress Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’ today. She turns sixty-three today (born on 7th January’1957).

We wish her a safe, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I had in my earlier post mentioned about Reena Roy’s movies that I watched and liked too, so I am not going to repeat the same here. We will straightway come to today’s movie and the song.

‘Karmayogi-1978’ was directed by Ram Maheshwari for ‘A.R. Productions, Bombay’. It was produced by Anil Suri. It had Mala Sinha, Rajkumar, Jeetendra, Rekha, Reena Roy, Ajit, Nazeer Hussain, Jagirdar, Yogita Bali, Sudhir Dalvi, Dheeraj, Kanhaiyalal, Jagdeep, Dhoomal, Mushtaq Merchant, Omkar Ema, Chandrashekhar, Jagdish Raj, Master Abbas, Master Parvez, Master Rajiv, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1978.

This movie had six songs, including one multiple version song. Lyrics for all songs were written by Verma Malik and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey were the playback singers for this movie.
Lata Mangeshkar had sung only one solo song in this movie and this is the same song being presented today.
None of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1978’ or 1979. However, today’s song made it to the ‘shadow list’ of songs or ‘songs of the next rung’ of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1979.

I had watched this movie on VCR during my stay at Kota circa 1990-1991. Though I have now forgotten the story of the movie, but I always remember a song from this movie. That song is another song sung by Asha Bhonsle and picturized 0n Rekha.

I had forgotten about today’s song but recently when I checked the Asha Bhonsle song for a post, I rediscovered this Lata Mangeshkar song. After listening to it, I recalled that this song was playedfrequently on loudspeakers during its time.

That is all for this post today. We wait for the next interesting post with other song of this movie. Till then let us once again wish Reena Roy a ‘very happy birthday’, and listen to today’s lovely song …

As mentioned above this song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lyrics are penned by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

With today’s song ‘Karmayogi-1978’ makes its debut on the blog. 😊

Blog Day :

4524 Post No. : 16084

Sometime in September 2019, there was an article written by Khalid Mohammed in ‘Mumbai Mirror’ which highlighted the plight of 92 years old music director and musicologist, Vanraj Bhatia. He was penniless and was struggling to meet his daily requirements including his medical expenses. He was mostly bedridden. He had not done his medical check-up for a long time due to paucity of money. To meet his daily expenses, he had started selling his old antique utensils which he had collected over a period of time.

We have heard this type of situation faced by some Hindi film artists earlier also. For instance, film artists like Chandramohan, Master Nissar, Khan Mastana, G M Durrani, Rajkumari Dubey, Sridhar Parsekar, Master Bhagwan, Parshuram, Cuckoo, Bharat Bhushan, Vimi, A K Hangal, Raj Kiran, Satish Kaul etc have gone through such abject poverty. But what is shocking is that in the 21st Century, even a person of the caliber of Vanraj Bhatia has to go through the vagaries of adverse financial conditions. And his precaurious conditions have remained unknown to most of his associates who had worked with him in the past. It was only when journalist, Editor and film director, Khalid Mohammed visited his house, the conditions of the recipient of the Lili Boulanger Memorial Fund Award (1957), National Film Award (1988) for the best music director, Sangeet Natak Akademi Award(1989) and Padma Shri Award (2012) became known.

Fortunately, within 48 hours from the article appearing in ‘Mumbai Mirror’, followed by breaking this news on social media, some of his old friends and admirers promptly raised funds for him. The Indian Performing Right Society (IPRS) chairman, Javed Akhtar also arranged to hand over a cheque to him within a couple of days of breaking the news. During the making of ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996), Vanraj Bhatia has a fight with Javed Akhtar in regard to a song for which Vanraj wanted the lyrics first and Javed Akhtar wanted the tune first. But this incidence did not affect Javed Akhtar in taking a prompt initiative in IPRS for the financial aid to this talented and intellectual musicologist.

Within a week from this news break, Dilip Tahil to whom Vanraj Bhatia gave his first break as a singer in a play, announced a book project on the life of Vanraj Bhatia which will be written by Khalid Mohammed. Amir Khan came forward to sponsor the book. Now, this is an interesting development as I feel that this is in recognition of the immense contributions Vanraj Bhatia has made in the Indian music scene which need to be brought to the notice of people in general and music admirers in particular. Many people may not be aware of his name even though some of his Hindi film songs may be known to them.

I have gone through his interviews in magazines/newspapers/digital newspapers and also on Rajya Sabha TV. Based on these interviews, I am confident that the proposed book on Vanraj Bhatia would not only turn out to be interesting one but would also generate royalty for him. He is not only an unique music director, he also seems to be an independent minded person if I read him correctly.

Vanraj Bhatia (B.31/05/1927) was born in Mumbai in a middle-class family who had shifted to Mumbai from Kutch during the period of boom in textile mills giving opportunity for business in cloth. His father was a cloth merchant. The young Vanraj was enrolled in New Era High School which was set up in 1930. The school also provided some vocational courses in addition to normal syllabus. Vanraj took the vocational course in Hindustani classical music and stood first in every year in the class.

After completion of his high school, Vanraj was enrolled in Elphinstone College with Sanskrit as an additional subject. Knowing his proficiency in Sanskrit, Vanraj’s professor was keen that he chose Sanskrit for his M.A. However, after graduation, Vanraj completed his M.A. in English literature in 1949.

During his teenage days, he had developed an interest in Western classical music. Under Dr. Manek Bhagat, he learned piano and studied the Western classical music for 4 years mastering all the works of Beethoven and Mozart. He wanted to pursue the further study in the Western classical music by going abroad. But his father was not able to financially support him. His close relatives were strongly opposed to his making music as a profession. which was seen by then in low esteem.

Finally, he got permission from his father with a condition that he would support his study abroad only for six months. Fortunately, Vanraj got scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London for 1951-54. After graduating with a gold medal in 1954, Vanraj got Rockefeller Scholarship for five years from 1954 to 1958 at Conservatoire de Paris.

The first advertising jingle Vanraj composed after returning to India in 1959 was for Shakti Mills which was produced by Durga Khote. The financial condition of Vanraj’s family was not good. He required some steady income to support the family. He took up the assignment in Delhi University as Reader in Western Musicology in 1960. He did not enjoy the work as there was no creativity. In 1964, he resigned from his post in Delhi University and returned to Mumbai to work as a full-time composer for advertising films. He did many advertising jingles which included his popular advertising jingles for Liril soap and Garden Vareli saaris.

During this period, Vanraj came into contact with Shyam Benegal who was also in the field of making advertising films. Vanraj worked for Shyam Benegal for the first time for his advertising film on Finlay Mills for which Vanraj composed advertising jingles. Both of them worked together in many advertising and documentary films. When Shyam Benegal ventured into making his first feature film ‘Ankur’ (1974), he assigned the background music to Vanraj Bhatia (it was a song-less film).

Vanraj Bhatia composed his first filmy songs in Shyam Benegal’s ‘Nishaant’ (1975). His next film. ‘Manthan’ (1976) had only one song, mero gaam kaatha paarey rendered by Preeti Sagar who used to sing for him for his advertising jingles. The song became very popular in which he experimented mixing of various dialects due to which people from Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh identified themselves with the song. Vanraj Bhatia became the regular collaborator with Shyam Benegal for 16 films until 2000 after which he virtually retired from the films as he had developed other interests in music.

According to Shyam Benegal, he and Vanraj Bhatia often fought during the sessions of song compositions. But at the end, the result was excellent. He created the perfect balance of Hindustani classical music and Western classical music. In an interview, Vanraj Bhatia had said that during his teenage days, he was influenced by the song compositions of R C Boral and Pankaj Mullick. According to him, they were the only music directors at that time who knew the use of harmony in their melodies through orchestration.

There is no indication in any of his interviews as to why he avoided the mainstream Hindi films or it was other way round. But he did take few mainstream Hindi films for background music such as ‘Ajooba’ (1991), ‘Beta’ (1992), ‘Damini’ (1993), ‘Ghatak’ (1996), ‘Pardes’ (1997), ‘Chinagate’ (1998) etc. The work of background music in these films gave him the opportunity and the satisfaction to showcase his talent in Western music.

Vanraj Bhatia, by and large confined himself to music direction of the parallel cinemas. In addition to working with Shyam Benegal, he has also worked with other directors of parallel cinemas such as Aparna Sen (‘36 Chowringhee Lane’, 1981), Kundan Shah (‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’, 1983), Saeed Akhtar Mirza (‘Mohan Joshi Haazir Ho’, 1984), Prakash Jha (‘Hip Hip Hurray’, 1984)), Ashok Tyagi (‘Shurkhiyaan’, 1985), Govind Nihalani (‘Tamas’, 1987) etc.

In a career spanning over 5 decades, Vanraj Bhatia made significant contributions to music across all forms. He started with advertisement jingles which numbered over 6000. He had also provided music to over 50 documentaries. He has been the music director about 35 films. He has also composed music for about a dozen classical TV serials like ‘Khandaan’ (1985), ‘Yatra’ (1986), ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (1988), ‘Wagle Ki Duniya (1988) etc. He composed music for many plays – both Hindi and English. He has made a mark in Western classical music by cutting about a dozen each of albums on his solo piano and chamber music. He composed the spiritual music albums like ‘Indian Meditation Music’ (1999), ‘Anant’ (2001), ‘The Bhagavad Gita’ (2002), ‘The Spirit of Upanishads’ (2007) etc.

One of Vanraj Bhatia’s musical work which was very close to his heart was producing an opera, ‘Agni-Varsha’ in English, based on Girish Karnad’s Kannada play ‘Agni Mattu Male’ (1995). The first two acts were staged in Mumbai in 2017. Later, one lady, Judith Kellock did two performances in New York. The opera received good response. He was working on the third act of the opera which appears to be ready. Unfortunately, due to his medical condition, the work has remained to be staged.

Unfortunately, most people are unaware of Vanraj Bhatia’s contributions in the field of music probably because he was not associated with mainstream Hindi films.

For Vanraj Bhatia, ‘Junoon’ (1978) was his first high budget film produced by Shashi Kapoor and directed by Shyam Benegal. The high budget of the film allowed him to engage the top playback singers, Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle for the first time for him besides the luxury of having a higher number of musicians than what he normally uses in low budget films. The film had 4 songs written by Amir Khusro, Jigar Muradabadi, Yogesh Praveen and 16th Century English poet, Christopher Marlowe (for English song). One song has been covered on the Blog.

I am presenting the 2nd song, a kajri, ‘saawan ki aayi bahaar re’ written by Yogesh Praveen and set to music by Vanraj Bhatia. The record version has 4 stanzas with orchestration, rendered by Asha Bhosle. The sound track version in the film has first, second and fourth stanzas of which first two stanzas are sung by Varsha Bhosle (Asha Bhosle’s daughter) without orchestration. Varsha Bhosle’s part of the song is picturised on Dipti Naval while Nafisa Ali is helping her in swinging. Jennifer Kapoor and Sushma Seth are sitting on the ground. The second stanza is again repeated by Asha Bhosle in the film in a different situation. She also sings the 4th stanza in another situation.

Although it is a ‘saawan’ song, it is also presented as ‘pre-marriage’ song in the second stanza and ‘separation’ song in the 4th stanza in the film. The 3rd stanza has not been included in the filmy version.

Hullo Atuldom

This post is to say Yyiippeeee to one more movie of the ’70s.
“Badaltey Rishtey” (1978) produced by Sudesh Kumar and directed by R Jhalani, had story by Mahendra Saral.

This movie had a very funny story-line—

Rishi Kapoor and Reena Roy are in love but there is some astrologer who predicts that Reena roy is slated to loose her husband within a month of her marriage. So she decides to accept Jeetendra’s proposal of marriage so that she can save Rishi Kapoor and marry him later.
But like all Hindi movies the heroine has to fall in love with her husband. Then she takes it upon herself to save her husband from Rishi Kapoor’s plans to kill Jeetendra. But it turns out in the end that Jeetendra all along knew what who was upto and that Rishi Kapoor was only play acting in conjunction with Reena Roy’s brother to make her realize that “pati hi parmeshwar hota hai”
a very typical family drama movie.

This is what I had written in the comments to one of songs of the film. Recently I found out that A. K. Hangal was the astrologer who happens to be Reena Roy’s brother’s (Asrani) father-in-law who makes that weird prediction that leads to the twists and turns in the movie.
Four out of the five songs, in this film, were written by Anjaan and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist for meri-saanson-ko-jo-mahka-rahi-hai/ . Suman Kalyanpur, Lata Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal, Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi and Mahendra Kapoor were the playback singers.
The four songs, from this film, already present on the blog are

Song Date posted
Na jaane kaise pal me badal jaate hai 19 November 2008
Meri saanson ko jo mahkaa rahi hai 20 November 2009
Tum chaahe hamko pasand na karo 1 June 2019
Wo wo na rahe jinke liye ham thhey beqaraar 20 November 2019

Here is the fifth and final song. I had mentioned this song, in the comments of this post.. It is a romantic genre song where we see Rishi Kapoor trying to get Reena out of her bad mood. They are talking about ‘kar toh daro mat yaar, daro toh karo mat pyaar’.

This seemed to be the mood for many of the songs featuring Chintu (Rishi Kapoor’s pet name) in the 70s. Remember “Khullam khulla pyar karenge hum dono”. Looks like he didn’t believe in hiding his feelings from the world. That was evident in those times too, when all other actors and actresses hid their personal love stories behind the “we are just good friends” refrain, we could see Chintu with Neetu being open about their relation. An older Chintu was known to voice his opinions on the various social media channels about things that he felt was not correct or were out-of-place. Infact, Chintu’s commissioned biography is also titled “Khullam Khulla- Rishi Kapoor Uncensored”. That book has many interesting tales from his life about how his father asked his mother’s permission before casting him in the role of the young Raj in “Mera Naam Joker” which went on to fetch Chintu his first award of Best Child Artist at the National film awards that year.

He goes on to describe how he sneaked away from the conversation at the dinner table between his parents and started preening before the mirror and practicing his signature so that he can be prepared to give Autographs. In the book, Chintu also mentions how he was chosen for Bobby and how there was no great introduction scene for his character even though he was the film-maker’s son. That means there was no NEPOTISM there or special privileges given to him by Raj Kapoor, infact for the song “main shaayar toh nahin” the dance director was giving steps to Aruna Irani and not Chintu (as mentioned in the book); that explains Chintu’s awkward movements in that song. But he had a sense of rhythm that saw him shake a leg as if he was an accomplished dancer.

4rd September is the first birthday of Chintu after he lost his battle with the dreaded C in April this year. He would have been 68. We have enough of his work to entertain us for years to come. Thanks to the various channel and other video sharing platforms we can relish his songs where he dances with a Sridevi, Jaya Prada, Madhuri Dixit, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Poonam Dhillon, and all the heroines that he had worked with from his debut (as an adult) opposite Dimple in Bobby (1973).

Here is the last song from Badaltey Rishtey in the voices of Anuradha Paudwal and Kishore Kumar.


Song-Gumsum si khoyi khoyi (Badalte Rishtey)(1978) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

jaan ke mat anjaan bano
tum meri uljhan kya samjho
har pal darta hai mera mann
socha karta hai mera mann
meri kismat mein hai ya nahin
ban’na kabhi tumhaari dulhan

socha bhi toh ye kya socha
mujh par nahin hai bharosa kya aa
socha bhi toh ye kya socha
mujh par nahin hai bharosa kya
us aasmaan se poochho
yeh dharti degi gawaahi
jeewan ke safar mein hum tum

daro to karo mat pyaar
karo to daro mat yaar
socho mat muskuraao
mere saath aao
gao ek baar
arre gaao na
daro toh karo mat pyaar
karo toh daro mat yaar

hum dono ke do hi achhe

kam se kam hon to do darjan
bhara bhara sa lage ghar aangan

arre baap re baap
kya soch rahi ho
mera nahin to kuch desh ka socho
bas darr gaye
dhat
daro toh karo mat pyaar
karo toh daro mat yaar
daro toh karo mat pyaar
karo toh daro mat yaar

pyaar me apne dam hai toh
kismat maanegi haar

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, yes, this one too.

And I am very sure most of us would not have heard, or even heard of, the third stanza in this song. Ah yes, that is the wonderful bonus we have from the repeat use of this song. I was not even aware of the existence of a third stanza of this song, before my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai (of Hapur) introduced me to this repeat song in the 1978 film ‘Nasbandi’. That was a few months ago. In wayward manner, i.e. without any proper identification etc., this song is available on you tube. And unless one is aware of what one is looking for, one is bound to miss it.

And the third stanza – I wonder where and how IS Johar was able to lay his hands on the extended version of this song. Is the film availabl somewhere? Food, and quite wholesome food at that, for thought. The repeat use is the original recording in the voice of Rafi Sb. And as such, it is not listed in the Geet Kosh, for the film ‘Nasbandi’.

Definitely, the best of the fast paced super foot tappers sung by Rafi Sb. Listening to this, one can but not cease being amazed in wonder at the spectrum of the range that Rafi Sb has rendered over the near four and a half decades of his career as a playback singer in Indian cinema.

The original song, from the film ‘Mr X’ from 1957. The film is sadly not available, not traceable at present. And so one cannot write about the picturization. However, one thing that Ahsaan Bhai has confirmed with certainty that this song is performed on screen by Johnny Walker, in the original.

The repeat song in the film ‘Nasbandi’ is presented, in original, as a background song. Now, ‘Nasbandi’ is  Johar Films production. And knowing the penchant IS Johar has for spoofing and presenting a near gobbledygook farce of the normal situations, one must see this clip with a barrelful of salt, keeping on the side, all the sensible understanding of the real world, or even the reel world. The fun in his films is very much in-your-face farce.

IS Johar was an acknowledged intellectual and man of letters. Only that his capabilities in this arena got directed towards comedy and fun. One can sense that he is making a film for fun, and in that process he is making fun of a lot of established ideas, and even well known people. He went on to produce many films of this calibre.

Another thing that I want to highlight is his penchant for the motor bike. In practically all his films that I have seen, there is one or more scene of motorbike riding, and in some cases, real dare-devilry motorbike riding, be it ‘Johar in Kashmir’ (1966), ‘Johar and Mehmood in Goa’ (1965), or ‘Johar and Mehmood in Hong Kong’ (1971). In this film too, the same gimmickry appears. This song is all about extreme motorbike riding, with display of driving skills underwater, driving on rail tracks, ascending and descending stair cases, besides the other nominal tricks of motorbike riding. One enjoys the song of course. But one also realizes – it is in the film just for the heck of it. 🙂

Ah but, this post is not about IS Johar and his films. It is the recall of this iconic song sung by Rafi Sb, and as mentioned above, the wondrous discovery of a third stanza of this song.

40 years ago, this divine virtuous voice, departed from this world of the mundane. And the world became lesser so with his departure. The artist that he was, and the humane person that was him, only rarely one finds these two attributes of eminence so pleasantly enmeshed together.

Just like water – it will take shape of whatever container one pours into. And it will take up the color of whatever it is mixed with. That is the artist in Rafi Sb. His voice in the background, almost always sounded as the voice of the actor in front. That is what water does – accepts everything, becomes everything.

Such is the same – as with Rafi Sb.

Amen.

Yesterday, 24th July, was the 40th remembrance day of the ‘Mahanayak’, as he is fondly referred to by his fans and friends.

Uttam Kumar, was born as Arun Kumar Chatterji on 3rd September, 1926 in Calcutta (now Kolkata). After his schooling, he joined college, but was not able to complete his graduation. He joined the amateur stage drama group – Suhrid Samaj, which was owned by his extended joint family, Starting from humble beginnings in amateur theatre, he went on to become the most successful actor in Bengali cinema. He rode the waves of popularity and continued to be a beloved icon of Bangla cinema. He was still at the height of his professional career when he passed away all too soon at the age of 54, this day in 1980.

‘Bandi’ from 1978, is one of the short list of Hindi films that he appeared in. Here is a song from that film, a romantic duet that he performs with Sulakshana Pandit. The words of this song are written by Indeewar and the music is by Shyamal Mitra.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Peevesie’s Mom.

A song to honor the memory of the ‘Mahanayak’ -Uttam Kumar.

Lyrics (Provided by Peevesie’s Mom)

jisey yaar ka sachcha pyaar miley
usey saare jahaan ki daulat kya
jisey yaar ka sachcha pyaar miley
usey saare jahaan ki daulat kya
teri aankhon mein chamke pyaar agar
heeron ki mujhko zaroorat kya
duniya mein jiska mol nahin
wo kya hai 
pyaar
pyaar
pyaar

tu jo saath ho 
dil ke paas ho
har gham hai gawaara
bharti nahin nigaah tera
kar ke nazaara
humraaz tu 
mera saaz tu
mere dil ka tu gehna
hai swarg se pyaara mujhe
teri baahon mein rehna
jab dekhoon main tujhko
lagta hai mujhko
rab ka hua deedar
jisey yaar ka sachcha pyaar miley
usey saare jahaan ki daulat kya
teri aankhon mein chamke pyaar agar
heeron ki mujhko zaroorat kya

tera sahaara 
main ban jaaun
mera sahaara tu ho
ang mila ke aise 
sang chaloon jaise
phool ke sang khusboo ho
tera sahaara 
main ban jaaun
mera sahaara tu ho
ang mila ke aise 
sang chaloon jaise
phool ke sang khusboo ho
tum jaise rakhoge waise rahungi
karti hun iqraar
jisey yaar ka sachcha pyaar miley
usey saare jahaan ki daulat kya
teri aankhon mein chamke pyaar agar
heeron ki mujhko zaroorat kya
duniya mein jiska mol nahin
wo kya hai 
pyaar
pyaar
pyaar

जिसे यार का सच्चा प्यार मिले
उसे सारे जहां की दौलत क्या
जिसे यार का सच्चा प्यार मिले
उसे सारे जहां की दौलत क्या
तेरी आँखों में चमके प्यार अगर
हीरों की मुझको ज़रूरत क्या
दुनिया में जिसका मोल नहीं
वो क्या है
प्यार
प्यार
प्यार

तू जो साथ हो
दिल के पास हो
हर ग़म है गवारा
भरती नहीं निगाह तेरा
करके इशारा
हमराज़ तू
मेरा साज़ तू
मेरे दिल का तू गहना
है स्वर्ग से प्यारा मुझे
तेरी बाहों में रहना
जब देखूँ मैं तुझको
लगता है मुझको
रब का हुआ दीदार
जिसे यार का सच्चा प्यार मिले
उसे सारे जहां की दौलत क्या
तेरी आँखों में चमके प्यार अगर
हीरों की मुझको ज़रूरत क्या

तेरा सहारा
मैं बन जाऊँ
मेरा सहारा तू हो
अंग मिला के ऐसे
संग चलूँ जैसे
फूल के संग खुशबू हो
तेरा सहारा
मैं बन जाऊँ
मेरा सहारा तू हो
अंग मिला के ऐसे
संग चलूँ जैसे
फूल के संग खुशबू हो
तुम जैसे रखोगे वैसे रहूँगी
करती हूँ इक़रार
जिसे यार का सच्चा प्यार मिले
उसे सारे जहां की दौलत क्या
तेरी आँखों में चमके प्यार अगर
हीरों की मुझको ज़रूरत क्या
दुनिया में जिसका मोल नहीं
