As we can see from above details none of the movies represented on the blog on 20.11.2009 have achieved Yippeeee’ed status so far.

I am today presenting a song from from the movie ‘Badalte Rishtey-1978’, which, as is my wont is from the seventies.

I have vague recollections of watching this movie with my parents and brothers. I must be around eleven years then. I must have liked the movie and its songs. That is why I never forgot its ‘title song’ and couple of ohter songs. When I started collecting cassettes for my music library in 1985-86, I was on the look out for the songs of this movie. Later on, I got them into my collection.

In cassette it came in combination with the songs of ‘Doosra Aadmi-1977’ when I bought it in 1997.

The songs I like most from ‘Badalte Rishtey’ includes the title song and the song ‘meri saanson ko jo …’
Another song that I liked a lot is the song being represented today.

I remember this song very well but I had forgotten that this song had Rishi Kapoor performing it on the screen. I was under the impression that it was Jeetendra. It was only when I watched the video of this song during the preparation of this post that I realized that the song was lip synced by Rishi Kapoor, while Jeetendra and Reena Roy are also present in the picturisation of this song.

I remember this movie being well appreciated and it was a good ‘entertainer’.

“Badaltey Rishtey-1978” was directed by R. Jhalani for ‘Vijayshree Pictures, Bombay’. Sudesh Kumar was the producer of this movie while it was presented by Gobindram Ahuja.

It had Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, Reena Roy, Asrani, A.K. Hangal, Pinchu Kapoor, Shubha Khote, Urmila Bhatt, Dina Pathak, Master Raju, Onkar, Madan Joshi, Pardesi, Raja Duggal, Makhan Singh, Chander Dhani, Mrs.Kaushal, Kheura, many others and the members of the ‘Himachal Skiing Club, Simla’.

The movie introduced Shashi Bala Saxena and Rachna Bhatt. Its dialogues were written by Madan Joshi. Editing of this movie was done by B. Prasad. Diljit Singh Bugge was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mahendra Sarai and screenplay was written by Phani Majumdar.

This movie had total five songs in it. Lyrics for all the five songs were penned by Anjaan and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Anuradha Paudwal, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as given below;

Song Posted on
Na jaane kaise pal mein badal jaate hain 19.11.2008
Meri saanson ko jo mahka rahi hai 20.11.2009
Tum chaahe hamko pasand na karo 01.06.2019

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

Though the title song of this movie was quite popular, other songs too were quite nice, hummable and popular. However, only the title from this movie make it to the annual Binaca Geetmala list of the year 1979, and it ranked on number four that year.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.11.1978.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song in Rafi Saab’s voice, and Rishi Kapoor (at his best in such situations 🙂 ) lipsyncing in an accusing tone for his lost love and pretending to sacrifice his love to save many from destroying their lives. 🙂

He befriends Jeetendra specifically so that he could sow seeds of ‘nafrat’ in Reena Roy’s mind about him who otherwise was not able to forgot her past life when she was in love with Rishi Kapoor.
Lots of twists and turns, but we only come to know about him when Asrani discloses his reality towards the end of the movie.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a walk down memory lane for me. I had seen this movie with my dad in the movie hall and subsequently he had purchased the cassette of its songs too. The songs from this album along with those of “Yaraana”, “Qurbaani” and “Sholay” used to be played constantly on holidays and I had learnt all the songs from these ‘by heart’ prompting the elders in the family to comment that if I had shown similar passion in studies I would have been a topper, not that I was a bad student but I used to top only in mathematics and was reasonably good at all other extra or co-curricular activities.

But that is not the subject of this post.

The subject of this post is Zeenat Aman. It is her birthday today and I would like to present this song to emphasise on how stylish she was.
The song is from the 1978 release “Heeralal Pannalal” about which Atulji has written a very interesting post with this song .

“Heeralal Pannalal” made its debut on the blog with the Pancham- Asha Bhonsle duet on the occasion of Amjad Khans’ birthday. The next song posted for Premnath’s birthday was the second version of the first song posted. It was treated as two posts as the lyrics were different and RD had given entirely different look to them. The movie has six songs and the fourth came on the blog for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday and the fifth one is here for Zeenat’s birthday. I think we should rename this movie as Birthday Special. Whatsay?

The songs were the handiwork of Majrooh and R D Burman. Today’s song is a stage song. The song happens as the two innocent and kind hearted heroes are trying to run away from some goons and land up (drop on would be more correct) on the stage as the heroines are awaiting the arrival of two professional dancers to help them in some inter college competition. The professionals walk-in just as song is coming to a close. This is the first time that the couples meet.

Let us pray for the speedy recovery of Lata Mangeshkar who sings today’s song with Asha, Bupinder and Kishore Kumar.
Happy Birthday to you Zeenie a.k.a Zeenat Aman.

hullo Atuldom

B. R. Chopra’s romantic comedy “Pati Patni Aur Woh”, based on the “seven-year itch” of Hollywood starring Marilyn Monroe made its blog debut on 25th February 2009 with the most famous song of the movie thhande thhande paani se nahaana chaahiye. After three years na aaj thha na kal thha was posted on the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s Birthdate. After almost a full year Sudhirji gave us this article on a song which can be called as a “movie inside a movie” song.

All the posts with these songs give us a fair idea of what a fun movie “Pati, Patni Aur Woh” was. Hence, I am not writing any gist of the movie. The idea to revisit this movie came as there are promos of a modern version of this movie being shown on Television these days. I found that there are five songs in the movie and three have been posted on the blog. On going through YouTube, I could find only four songs from the movie. (resolution: shall sit through the movie one of these days to see if it has the missing song). I remember that “o duniya ke rakhwale” was used in the movie, actually only one line of the mukhda, when Sanjeev Kumar wants to reset his alarm clock. That was in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor.

I am trying desperately to refrain from writing what a fine actor Harihar Jethalal Jariwala -popular as Sanjeev Kumar- was, or about his comic timing or about his smart looks and smile. I am also not going to list out the wonderful movies that he has acted in or how much I love seeing him in emotional scenes. We have a brilliant post by Sudhirji mujhko to qaatil ki itni pehchaan hai which will give us a picture of the kind of actor Haribhai (as his friends in the industry addressed him).

Today on the occasion of the 34th remembrance day of Haribhai we can have the last available song from “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor, written by Anand Bakshi and Ravindra Jain was the composer. This lively song is at the wedding of friends of the lead couple, who later go ahead and get married (in the movie 🙂 ). The song kind of follows the qawwali format. This was one of the movies where Sanjeev Kumar acted his age and was not an aged person meaning senior citizen.


Song-Ladki cycle waali (Pati Patni Aur Woh)(1978) Singers-Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

ladki cyclewaali
o o ladki cyclewaali
de gayi raste mein
hoye ae de gayi raste mein
ek pyaar bhari gaali
hoye ladki cyclewaali ee ee

gaali pe chhod diya aa aa
gaali pe chhod diya
aise deewaane ka
tum jaise deewaane ka
sar kyun nahin tod diya
ho o o gaali pe chhod diya aa aa aa

ek chaand sa mukhda hai
hoye ek chaand sa mukhda hai
jiske dupatte ka
ye ae jiske dupatte ka
ek reshmi tukda hai
tukda hai ji
ek chaand sa mukhda hai ae ae
badnaam toh karte ho
o o badnam toh karte ho
naam nahin lete
kyun naam nahi lete
kya maar se darte ho
hoye badnaam toh karte ho o o

kothe te kaanv bole
o bole kothe te kaanv bole
us din ko dekhu
main us din ko dekhoon
jis din tu haan bole
hoye kothe te kaaan bole
mumkin ye mail nahin ee ee
mumkin ye mail nahin
BA pass hoon main
o o BA pass hoon main
koi daswin fail nahi
ja ja mumkin ye mail nahi ee ee

shaabba shabba kudiye shawa
o mundiye shaabba shabba

kya naam tumhaara hai
ho o kya naam tumhara hai
umr toh khaasi hai
ho oo umr toh khaasi hai
ab tak tu kunwaara hai
hoo kya naam tumhara hai ae ae

tu jaldi jawaan hoti
haye je tu jaldi jawaan hoti
toh shaayad tu hi
hoye toh shaayad tuhi
mere bachchon ki maan hoti
hoye tu jo jaldi jawaan hoti ee ee

Just like so many more human endeavors, wherein the concepts and philosophical models of ‘-isms’ are all so correct and convincing, and their practical implications and implementations are so faulty and distorted that the discussions about the defects and flaws, also sounds very convincing in the hindsight.

Take Communism for example. The writings of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Illych Lenin – as they write about the class struggle between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’, and lucidly present their ideas on how to address this social divide, for the betterment of humanity – are so very a convincing, palpable and substantial, that it is easy to be convinced about the failings and deficiencies of the capitalist / imperialistic model of the world order, which should be replaced everywhere with the model of Communist social order. When Marx passed away in 1883, the debate on this subject was quite vigorous both amongst the elite and the working class in the countries of Europe.

Not long thereafter, the revolution of the working class came about in 1917, in Russia, under the leadership of Lenin. A new model of state and governance, and a new social order was established. The history is replete with the narrative of violence and misery that accompanied this change, but the Communist movement had come on to stay. Over the next three decades, this model of a new social order spread to other neighboring states – towards the west of the erstwhile USSR, which formed the countries in eastern European bloc and towards the South East, i.e. China.

For all the populism and the PR that was a big budget activity in the USSR, the model did not quite stick for very long. Within our own lifetimes, we have witnessed the downfall of Communism in 1980s – the so called perestroika or restructuring of the social order and government in the USSR, now Russia. The theories of the great philosophers of the late 19th century, did not quite hold on together when implemented and the rubber met the road. Although China still holds out with their powerful Communist Party supported by their strong army, the Communistic form of social order did last, albeit just for about seven decades.

A similar pageant has played out and is playing out, in India. The ‘-ism’ that is associated with Mahatma Gandhi, that Munna Bhai so endearingly likes to call ‘Gandhi-giri’ (‘Lagey Raho Munna Bhai’, 2006), has seen its prime during the early decades of the twentieth century, and its subsequent devaluation in the closing decades of the same twentieth century. I remember – in the 1980s and 90s, around the time of his birth anniversary (2nd October) every year, one was treated to editorials and articles in newspapers, and panel discussions on Doordarshan, with titles that were variations on “The Relevance of Gandhi Today”. Even then, my mind used to react that as a society, we have apparently lost Gandhi and his ideals, if now that the intelligentsia is beginning to discuss the relevance. Just so strongly underscores the fact that the question of relevance comes to fore, when the storm of doubts and disbelief is surging strong in the society. That discussion still continues.

Where and what are the fault lines? I had read his autobiography – ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’ way back when I was in college. I was, and honestly I still am, deeply impressed, influenced, overwhelmed by honesty and simplicity with which he has laid bare his persona and his internal turmoils, his candid admissions of his faults, expressions of his ideals and idealistic resolutions, and the strength of character to personally follow and implement those ideals in practical life. It is a frightening tale of development of a human mind from the basic animalistic existence to literally a sainthood. It goes to establish that Gandhi was no ordinary soul, and such souls appear on this planet quite rarely. Albert Einstein has so beautifully summed it up in his tribute – “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth”

A time was, at the turn of the century, when the nation was seeking a simple philosophy in leadership. Here was a teacher, who did not just teach. In fact he refused to teach or direct others, for things that he himself had not practiced and not lived through himself. A hallmark of a true saint, whose existence within his own mind, and as seen by those around him, is starkly the same. My readings about the Tolstoy Farm that he established in South Africa in 1910, are such an impactful influence. And also a conviction that this soul is an honest and truthful spiritual leader, who will not lead his flock astray for personal or ideological gains.

For all his goodness and his saintly leadership of the people, his words and his teachings stand at crossroads today. The retinue of his followers diminishing over time, and bevy of protesters calling out their criticisms and insults – their tribe is incessantly increasing. Where is the fallacy? Is there an aberration that we see on the radar of history?

A lot has been written and continues to be written about him. But I really wonder how many of us are actually, really reading him. He has written extensively, and not just one book. His complete works including his articles and speeches, will form a complete section of a good size library. Many years ago, maybe more than three decades ago, I read the following in one of his articles printed in 1927 in the journal ‘Young India’. Countering all that I had read till then, and had been hearing about his philosophy of ahimsa (non-violence), here was a paragraph that stunned me with its clarity of thought and perfection of logic.

“My creed of non-violence is an extremely active force. It has no room for cowardice or even weakness. There is hope for a violent man to be someday non-violent, but there is none for a coward. I have therefore said more than once in these pages that if we do not know how to defend ourselves, our women and our places of worship by the force of suffering, i.e., nonviolence, we must, if we are men, be at least able to defend all these by fighting.”

All his life, he incessantly tried to differentiate for his followers, the distinction he made between non-violence and cowardice. In the same journal, in another article, even earlier in 1920, he writes,

“I do believe that, where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence…. But I believe that non-violence is infinitely superior to violence, forgiveness is more manly than punishment. Forgiveness adorns a soldier. But abstinence is forgiveness only when there is the power to punish; it is meaningless when it pretend to proceed from a helpless creature.”

At another place, his words on this same theme are

“Where choice is set between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence. . . I prefer to use arms in defense of honor rather than remain the vile witness of dishonor. . .”

Are we, in this age and these circumstances, aware of this strong advocacy of the above distinction he makes between the oh so terribly misunderstood themes of non-violence vs cowardice? And are we teaching, nay even projecting the correct understanding of all that this great soul stood for all his life?

The generation that had spent time with him, that had experienced his influence and his aura first hand, is already relegated to history. Well, almost. The survivors of that generation are very few. In another few years, maybe a decade or so, we shall not be hearing of a Gandhian anymore. For the newer crop of followers that we see, Gandhi is more of a political crutch, and face to be put on the currency notes, nothing much more than that.

Where lies the answer to the ‘WHY’ connected with this scenario? I do not know. There are many an ill of the human tendencies and human traits that we can expound to explain. But probably the answer lies deeper – deeper inside the very constitution of this existence itself. A simple axiom that makes up the destiny of everything that we can observe. Simply put – everything decays. Ensconced in these two simple words is the terrible and profound truth that applies to everything in this universe, and to the universe itself. I will posit it from two different directions that I am aware of.

One – our scriptures. It is written in our scriptures, in the sections where the creation of this universe is described, that when He created this universe, it was perfect, in every possible way that can be thought of. But this perfection lasted for just that first instant of creation. This perfect universe started to decay in the very next instant. It is stated so, in our books. And this decay encompasses everything that is material and even non-material in existence. That is the progression of the ‘yugas’ (eras) that we are so familiar with in our scheme of the universe and its passage through time. The good shall diminish and the things will always be progressively worse.

Two – from the perspective the study of the physical nature of this universe as a subject – Physics. There is a branch of this study called Thermodynamics, which deals with the energy within a system, and all aspects related to it. This branch of physics was formalized as a subject through the research work, both physical and philosophical, of scientists in the 18th and 19th centuries – names like Count Rumford, Sadi Carnot, William Thomson, Gibbs, James Maxwell etc. Based on their works, this branch now has a set of laws called the Laws of Thermodynamics, which are time tested and form the foundations of a huge segment of physical sciences. The second of these laws has a very simple, very interesting statement, and a very profound implication for the entire universe itself. The law states that –

“The total entropy of an isolated system can never decrease over time.”

The key element to understand in this statement is ‘entropy’. Simply defined, entropy is the measure of the state of disorderliness in a physical system. Going by this law, a deduction that can be inferred immediately is that in any physical system, the disorderliness will always increase with time. To put it even more simply, and bluntly, every system will always and only, decay with time. That brings us back to a concurrence with the assertions contained in our scriptures.

And so, as with everything, the social systems will also decay with time. I am sure I do not need to explain this statement further. People with awareness of history, and also, the awareness of the experiences of a lifetime, will concur.

Truth, however, remains unchanged. In all the rigmarole of the eras and human evolution, and the transitions of history that we are aware of, the only thing that remains unchanged is the Truth. In Hindi, the word is ‘सत्य’ which comes from the root ‘सत्’. If I may draw an analogous word from the English language, it would be ‘stat’ or ‘static’, which also means – un-moving, at rest, unchanging. Truth, in this creation, and as a conceptual idea, remains static unchanged, in this tumultuous ocean of creation that is eternally in a chaos of constant change and decay.

The concept of this unchanging Truth is discussed and described quite at length in our scriptures. A basic characteristic of this Truth is that not just that it is unchanging, but it is also inert and passive. It does not DO anything. It just IS.

That thread now brings us back to the Mahatma again. Here is one person who realized quite early in life, the nature of this Truth, as is evident from the title of his autobiography – ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’. Understanding the passive and inactive nature of Truth, he set out on a journey to experiment with it, to understand it better. That realization, and his unflinching endeavor to pursue and investigate it, is what makes him stand out as a giant amongst men. He belongs to that list of a handful people in the history of the human civilization who have raised this query within themselves, and have encountered the answer. For that, he is a Mahatma – the extraordinary soul, and a notch above the Atma – the ordinary souls, who can be counted in millions.

The song being presented today, belongs to the 1978 film ‘Nasbandi. The period of history covered in this film is that of June 1975 to January 1977, during which Emergency was proclaimed in our country. I am not going into the politics behind this episode. Enough to say that in 1977, when the elections were held, the powers that proclaimed and benefitted from this state of emergency, lost, and a new political equation was written into history of India. The film deals with the topic of forced sterilization of menfolk, one of the key ingredients of the political battle in 1977.

The film is produced by Johar Films, and is directed by IS Johar. The name is sufficient to give an idea of what kind of a comical spoof this film is. Especially when we have IS Johar and Rajendranath playing the lead roles.

Geet Kosh lists seven songs for this film, written by Indeewar, Rajendra Krishan and Hullad Muradabaadi. This particular song is written by Indeevar and the music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. This is a background song in the film, rendered by Kishore Kumar.

The song is a regretful complaint about the state of the nation, and a supplication to the Mahatma – as to the social and political conditions prevailing. That the dream of a disciplined and amiable social edifice that the Mahatama had envisioned, was in shambles. The instances of regrets are many, and the passing years and decades, have only added to them. None of them have been is taken away.

And that brings us back to the thread of the continuous decay, everywhere.

The philosophies and the visions of great men are like beacons of light in the thick fog of chaos and uncertainty that this universe, this existence is. And that existence is steadily moving towards more chaos, more uncertainty. That is the nature of existence itself. These great men – Nanak, Buddha, Abraham, Moses Prophet Mohammed, Christ, Socrates, Gandhi, Zoroaster, Kabeer, and many more – have been the extraordinary souls that have realized the Truth of this existence. Their messages to the humankind are an effort to make more of us ordinary souls understand this path, and its goal. But this world is what it is. Despite that so many extraordinary souls have visited and tried to spread this message. Or maybe, we can say that this world is what it is today, because of these enlightened souls – it would have been even a worse present, had these men not visited this earth.

O Gandhi, the vision of society that you shared with us, lies unread in books no one reads anymore, in libraries that no one visits any more.

And thieves have stolen the ‘बकरी’ (goat) whose milk had nourished your soul.

जनता की आवाज़ है ये
सुन ले ओ बापू गांधी
ये कैसा हाहाकार देश में
ये कैसी आग की आँधी
कहाँ गई वो तेरी अहिंसा॰ ॰ ॰
कहाँ गई वो तेरी अहिंसा
कहाँ गया वो प्यार
गांधी तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार
बापू तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार
एक भारत में बन गए
जालियाँवाले बाग हज़ार
गांधी तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार
बापू तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार

तूने जब आवाज़ लगाई
सारा हिन्दोस्तान उठा
सारा हिन्दोस्तान उठा
अंग्रेजों के दिल भी दहले
ऐसा एक तूफान उठा
ऐसा एक तूफान उठा
खुशी खुशी तेरे कहने पर
भारतवासी जेल गए
सीने पे गोली झेल गए
अपने प्राणों पर खेल गए
अपने प्राणों पर खेल गए
नाम पे तेरे लाखों जवाँ
दुनिया के सब दुख भूल गए
दुल्हन का घूँघट बिन खोले ही
फांसी पर झूल गए
फांसी पे वो झूल गए
तू स्वराज ले आया॰ ॰ ॰
तू स्वराज ले आया
हम तो फिर भी रहे लाचार
गांधी तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार
बापू तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार

आज़ादी की जंग लड़ा था
इसीलिए क्या हिन्दोस्तान
इसीलिए क्या हिन्दोस्तान
अरे न्याय मांगने न्यायालय में
जा ना सके कोई इंसान
जा ना सके कोई इंसान
कितने ही निर्दोष यहाँ
मीसा के अंदर बंद हुये
अंधे कूंए में कितने ही
आज़ाद समंदर बंद हुये
आज़ाद समंदर बंद हुये
इस्मत लूटा करते हैं जो
बन कर राज के पहरेदार
अपनी सत्ता रखने को जो
छीनें जनता के अधिकार
छीनें जनता के अधिकार
गांधी तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार
बापू तेरे देश में
ये कैसा अत्याचार

देखी कहीं कलम-बंदी
देखी कहीं ज़ुबान बंदी
देखी कहीं ज़ुबान बंदी
डर की हुकूमत हर दी पर भी
सारा हिन्दोस्तान बंदी
सारा हिन्दोस्तान बंदी
नसबंदी के नाम पे ज़ुल्म हुए
वो दुखिओं-दीनों पर
लगता था लटका हो जैसे
प्रजातंत्र संगीनों पर
प्रजातंत्र संगीनों पर
तुर्कमान वो गेट आसमान
टूटा जहां ज़मीनों पर
चला दिये बुलडोज़र जब
बेबस लोगों के सीनों पर

सारे देश पे ज़ुल्म ओ सितम के
घोर अंधेरे जब छाए
घोर अंधेरे जब छाए
तब प्रकाश की किरणें ले कर
जयप्रकाश आगे आए

अरे जो भी हुकूमत ज़ुल्म करेगी

जो भी हुकूमत ज़ुल्म करेगी

Hullo Atuldom

“Khoon Ki Pukar” released in 1978 – censor certificate is dated 29-5-1978. It was directed by Ramesh Ahuja and produced by Tahir Husain’s T. V. Films Pvt. Ltd. It had a cast headed by Vinod Khanna and Shabana Azmi with Aruna Irani, Amjad Khan, Roopesh Kumar, Krishnakant and Pran as main supporting characters. The movie opens with the lines in “buland awaaz” (have always wondered whose voice it was)

khudi ko kar buland itna, ke har takdeer se pehle,
khuda bande se khud pooche, bata teri raza kya hai

which translates as

Make yourself so worthy that before deciding your fate God shall ask you what you wish for!

This was standard for all movies made by Tahir Husain. The movie’s songs were written by Hasrat Jaipuri (2) and Gauhar Kanpuri (5). Bappi Lahiri was the music director. The seven songs were rendered by Lata Mangeshkar (3 solos and 2 duets), Kishore Kumar (1 solo and 1 duet), Anuradha Paudwal (1), and Mohd. Rafi (only a duet).

I have been seeing this movie as and when time has been permitting over the last couple of days and this is what I have seen –

” After the murder of his wife, and his son’s kidnapping, Dr. Vidya Bhushan (Pran) decides to devote the rest of his life as a Poojary, living on the premises of a princely-donated temple, hoping and praying that one day he will be reunited with his estranged son. One day a wounded bandit named Sher Singh (Vinod Khanna) comes to the temple and Pran treats him back to health. He not only shields the man from the police, but also lies to the townspeople that the man’s name is Amrit, When Amrit recovers, he is grateful to Vidya for looking after him, and he falls in love with a town belle by the name of Shalu (Shabana Azmi). What Vidya does not know is that Amrit is really interested in the gold and jewellery hidden in a secret underground chamber below the temple; and what Amrit does not know is Shalu is seeking vengeance against Sher Singh for killing her father.”

From the above it is evident that the movie was a typical Bollywood-masala-movie relying heavily on the tried and tested ‘lost and found’ theme and ‘dacoits and revenge’ for additional leverage with the audience. Vinod Khanna and Shabana Azmi were a popular on-screen couple from the 1976 released “Shaque” to “Lahu Ke do Rang” which came in 1979 after which VK suddenly left everything and went off to Rajneesh Ashram. They did about 7 films as romantic pair and this must be one of the only movies were VK played a nasty dacoit after he turned to playing the main hero roles. Of course, this dacoit is the hero of the movie or as the stars of Bollywood like to say – character with grey-shades which gets reformed eventually, 😊

Today’s song is penned by Hasrat Jaipuri whose 20th anniversary was on 17th of September. On screen it is performed by Shabana and VK for a song sung by Lata and Kishore.
This song is also meant to wish Shabana Azmi on her 69th birthday. We all know that she was born on 18 September to poet Kaifi Azmi and his actress wife Shaukat Azmi. She is supremely talented and has won 5 National Awards for Best Actress over the years from her debut film “Ankur” in 1975 to 1999 for “Godmother”; she is also a Padma Award winner along with being a social and Women’s Rights activist.

It was not by design that I chose this song today. My aim was just to see if Shabana had worked in any movie produced by Tahir Husain and I landed on this. Why did I look for a Tahir Husain movie? Because I wanted to remember him on his 81st birth anniversary which is on 19th September. Tahir Husain – who was brother of Nasir Hussain and father of actors Aamir Khan and Faizal Khan. Tahir Husain also produced a few movies beginning with the 1971 “Caravan” till “Madhosh” in 1994. We have seen him in front of the camera in a few films directed by his brother Nasir Husain.

So, here is today’s song which starts with a couplet

ये इश्क़ नहीं आसान बस इतना समझ लीजिये
एक आग का दरिया है और डूब के जाना है

I have heard this couplet a number of times in my life and I decided to google to find its poet/ shaayar. First google came up with Jigar Moradabadi’s name, then I also found these lines attributed to Mirza Ghalib. Now I am confused. I hope there is someone in the followers of this blog who will tell who wrote this first. But Hasrat Jaipuri has begun the song with the couplet and let us enjoy it.

P.S.: I love the way Vinod Khanna walks dressed as the groom in the middle of the song. 🙂


Song-Ye ishq nahin aaasaan itna hi samajh leeje (Khoon Ki Pukaar)(1978) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

yeh ishq nahin aasaan
itna hi samajh leeje ae
ek aag ka dariya hai
aur doob ke jaana hai
samjhe buddhu
aah!nahin
nahin samjha

pyaar taqdeer jagmagaata hai
rang jeewan mein jamaata hai
pyar bandook toh nahin nadaan
sabko insaan yeh banaata hai
abhi bhi nahin samjhein
ab bhi bhi nahi samjha

mohabbat karke dekho
kisi pe marke dekho
mohabbat aag bhar de
ke patthar mom kar de
ooo
jab tak dil par chot na khaaye
pyaar ki manzil koi na paaye
tum dikhlaa do pyaar ki manzil
apni samajh mein kuchh nahin aaye

saathi mere ban jaana
samjhoge afsaana
saathi mere ban jaana
samjhoge afsaana
o jaane jaana pyaar ko na jaana
o jaane jaana pyaar ko na jaana
humse seekho pyaar ka jaadu chalaana aa
pehle aankh milaana,
phir gale se lagaana
samjhe
samajh gaya

jab se tum aayin zindgaani mein
lag gayi aag jaise paani mein
ek hulchal si ho gayi paida ha aa
meri khaamosh naujawaani mein

abhi toh ibtida hai
abhi dekha hi kya hai
mohabbat zindagi hai
mohabbat hi khuda hai
hoooo
lagti ho tum to pyaar ki devi
manmandir mein aan baso ji

aayi samajh mein pyar ki geeta
pyaar kiya bhagwan ko jeeta
main hoon tera deewaana
main hoon tera parwaana
main hoon tera deewaana,
main hoon tera parwaana
o jaane jaana pyaar maine jaana
o jaane jaana pyaar maine jaana

humse sikho pyar ka, jaadu chalaana aa
pehle aankh milaana
phir gale se lagaana
phir gale se lagaana

Happy Friendship day to all in Atuldom

As I have said in my post last year, the first Sunday of August is celebrated in many parts of the world as Friendship day. All the proverbs or sayings connected with Friends and Friendship come rushing to the mind viz. “a friend in need is a friend indeed”; “a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out”; “every gift from your friend is a wish for your happiness”; “a friends’ eye is like a good mirror”; etc.

At the same time I can recollect numerous songs from Bollywood connected with friendship and friends like “doston se pyaar kiya dushmanon se badle liya” (which subsequently Usha Uthup used to sing as “doston se pyaar kiya dushmano se bahut pyaar kiya” in all her concerts); “ae yaar sun yaari teri mujhe zindagi se bhi pyaari hai”; and the most popular of them all- “ye dosti hum nahin todenge”.

It is really fortunate to have friends on whom one can rely. It is an experience where in, one can just pick up the phone and begin talking as if there was no break in the one-to-one interaction, or any lapse of time in between one meeting or chat and another. And I must say I experienced it. So much so, that around the beginning of June a few friends of mine from my college days decided to meet up at the place of one amongst us and spend a few days together.

Much like the gangout that I had with my blog friends in April end. That gangout was decided at short notice, even the venue changed from Guruji’s place to Kamathji’s place as Guruji had to urgently rush out of Mumbai. It was a hangout that fell in place as Sudhirji intimated that he will be in Mumbai at that time with Bakshishji for company, for almost a week. And I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of meeting the two of them, and made it aware that I will have only a few hours at my disposal before catching my return bus to Bangalore. And the hangout happened with Bharatji, Sudhirji, Bakshishji and Nitinji.

We had a very gracious and efficient host in Kamathji and his family. I simply loved the attention they gave us. Nitinji and Bharatji had already arrived when I reached the venue and then the bell rang. We all expected it to be the Dilliwales but it turned to be our ever-smiling IN-HOUSE ENCYCLOPAEDIA. That was the best surprise that could have been sprung on the gang as we were without information about his location. And the sweet/ cute person that he is, he decided to meet us as soon as he landed in Mumbai – just that morning. Then the Dilliwales walked in and we had quorum so to speak. We managed to spend a joyful time where Sudhirji and Bakshishji spoke of their time well-spent over the last two days doing what we all enjoy- listening to music.

So, when birds of the same feather flock together there is a whole lot of Music, Masti And Magic. (this last 3 Ms is the slogan of one of the many music channels on satellite television). Like it happened when I met my gang of college friends in the heart of summer and the country reeling under temperatures of 40-49 degrees Celsius. But that didn’t stop us from getting out into the sun and seeing a part of the country which we had never visited. And when it got too hot, we just whiled away the time in the comfort of the air-conditioned room, talking of old times and catching up on 30 years of gossip, with platefuls of snacks and mugs full of tea/ coffee. Yes, I had met a particular friend after that many years but we never felt that it was that long back. There was no awkwardness. That is what friends and friendship is about I suppose.

We have numerous Hindi film songs where gangs of girl friends pick up their cycles and go about singing like Saira Banu did in Padosan or Nutan did in Anaari and Chhaliya. Heroes are no different and we have seen Rajendra Kumar in Aas Ka Panchchi; Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan with their group of friends in Aap Ke Deewane etc. But our movie stars also sing along with their friends in open topped cars and jeeps and we end up having songs like “chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de”; “Manubhai motor chale pom pom pom”.

Now there is a similarity in the two open topped car songs that I have mentioned. Though the two songs are 24 years apart, and they show the heroes frolicking about they are singing in the same voice. That of Kishore Kumar.

Kishore Kumar who would have been 90 today. Unbelievable!!! But then we are not fortunate to have him amongst us. We are fortunate that we have his songs- songs that tickle us into laughter, bring a smile to our lips, nudge us out of bad moods. And we are grateful to lord almighty for this singer, actor, producer, director and music composer who lived amongst us mortals. Whose friendship with Dev Anand, RD Burman, Rajesh Khanna etc is well known. His voice was instrumental in shaping the careers of many actors till Anil Kapoor, Sunjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav etc.

Today’s song is from the 1978 Surinder Kapoor produced, Sikandar Khanna directed “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which starred Rishi Kapoor and Moushumi Chatterjee in lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Amjad Khan, Asrani, Ranjeet, Helen, Paintal Mukri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo etc. Mithun Chakravarthy played one of Rishi Kapoor’s many friends in the movie. The songs were written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music composers.

I have seen this movie years ago but the story of the movie as given on IMDB.com is as follows (and is accurate I must say) —
Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, shall not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions. One: That he marries a woman of Rai’s choice, Shalini, who shall inherit half of the property; and in order for Vishal to inherit all of the property he must re-locate to their farmhouse in a village, cultivate a piece of land, and grow some crops on it within one year. Needless to say, Vishal is enraged at this, and neither of the two conditions are acceptable to him. However, he reconsiders this, and he and half a dozen friends travel to the village, set a comfortable albeit accommodations, and attempt to cultivate the land. Things do not go as planned, as Vishal and his friends are accused of molesting and raping a village belle, which leads to her suicide. His friends, noticing the changed atmosphere, disappear, leaving Vishal alone to carry out the mammoth task of cultivating the land on his own, without help or support, and angry villagers who may expel him from their village. It looks like Vishal is on his way of losing everything he had ever hoped, prayed, and taken for granted.

From the above story it is evident that friends can make or break one’s life. There is a line in the other song that I have mentioned above

“chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de” which is how friendships should be

“baant kar jo khaaye us pe apne jaan-o-dil lutaa
jo bachaaye maal us ko jooti’on ka haar de”

Let your heart and your life be beholden
For a buddy who shares his food with you
But for him, who scrimps and keeps safe his things
Be sure to present him with a garland of shoes”

-this I have copy pasted from the post that Sudhirji had written for the song.

Happy Birthday to our Kishore Kumar

August 1st

Important for me, used to be my mom’s birthday. Thinking of her has only reinforced my feelings that the song with this post convey. She was one lively person who smiled through her illness and never let us know how much pain she was going through. She was always ready to accompany my dad on whatever tour he chose to organise. And I am sure they enjoyed every bit of their time and life together. That is the exact feeling that today’s song speaks of.

“Live life as if there are no tomorrows” – Kal Kya Hoga Kis Ko Pata, Abhi Zindagi Ka Le Lo Mazaa.

August 1st also happens to be the birth anniversaries of Meena Kumari and Bhagwan Dada. Meena Kumari, born Mahjabeen Bano, would have been 86 and Bhagwan Dada, born Bhagwan Abhaji Palav, would have been 103.

Both the actors had their share of fame and were lead actors in many movies. Master Bhagwan, as Bhagwan Dada used to be known in the early years, started his career in the era of silent films. And Meena Kumari stepped into films as a child artist sometimes in the early 1940s. They were part of a few movies together where Meena Kumari was the heroine and Bhagwan lead the comic side plot for example ‘Bandish’ (1955), ‘Main Bhi Ladki Hoon’ (1964} etc.

They had successful careers through the 1960s. We lost Meena Kumari in the beginning of the 70s but Bhagwan Dada was still there and I remember seeing him in many movies doing his signature step dance. In the initial stages of my movie watching I was unaware that he was such a huge star of his times. I always saw him as a side-kick or a dancer who was given prominence in various group dance numbers. Much later I happened to see his songs of ‘Albela’ and I realized that he was being copied by the actors of the 70s – HE was their inspiration. After associating with this blog, I read about his life and times and felt sad that what went up had to go down too. Probably he too subscribed to the thoughts of today’s song and lived in his “todays as if there were no tomorrows”.

Rose Movies’ ‘Kasme Vaade’ (1978) was produced and directed by Ramesh Behl. It had Rakhee, Neetu Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, Randhir Kapoor in the main lead with Rekha in a guest appearance and Amjad Khan in special appearance. Master Bhagwan (Dada) was there for one song at the start of the film. That song was meant to show the happy-go-lucky character of Randhir Kapoor. We find RK on a night out with his cronies, running amok in the streets doing wheelies etc. (it is obvious that all the motor bike stunts are by a body double) and that is the situation for today’s song.

I had always wanted to present this song on the blog to highlight Bhagwan Dada’s steps and dancing. Finally, here it is.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

July the 3rd is the date when the son of a favorite singer of mine, who is equally my favourite turns a year younger. It is the 67th birthday of Amit Kumar Ganguly. The all-rounder musician – he is a playback singer and music director in addition to being an actor and director.
He made his acting debut as an 11 or 12-year-old in “Door Gagan Ki Chaon Mein” (1964) and had his father singing for him “aa chal ke tujhe main leke chaloon ek aise gagan ke tale”. He played a mute kid whose eyes conveyed a lot of emotion. His eyes still convey a lot of emotion- we mostly see mischief there. 🙂 His next screen appearance was again with his father in a short role in “Door Ka Rahi” (1971). “Main ik panchchi matwala re” was a song that was recorded for the movie which was later edited out from the final cut of the movie and used inn a later Kishore Kumar production “Mamta Ki Chaon Mein”. Whatever acting he has done is mostly in movies produced by his father. He has acted in about six movies and took on the mantle of director to complete his fathers’ “Mamta ki Chaon Mein” which released in 1989; two years after his father, the legendary Kishore Kumar, passed away.

I have seen a video on youtube where Amit Kumar mentions how his proud father Kishore Kumar presented him on stage as part of a “Kishore Kumar Nite” in the 70s. He has related how the father-son duo had planned on his entry on to the stage and so many other anecdotes are there in that video.

I made some mental notes after seeing that video. Today’s song is selected from those notes- the first song that I discovered in that video has been shared on the blog by Sudhirji – a Madan Mohan marvel “hai shaam badi matwali” from the 1980 release “Chaalbaaz” which was one of the first few songs that he sang outside of his father’s production.

The very first time that he sang for someone other than his father was for the music director duo Sapan- Jagmohan. (I know that either our in-house encyclopedia or Sudhirji have written a brief introduction to this lesser known music director jodi). The movie was “Darwaza” by the Ramsay Brother’s production house.

The movie had a cast of Anju Mahendru, Shyamlee, Anil Dhawan, Imtiaz Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Sheetal, etc etc. The movie had Naqsh Lyallpuri as the lyricist. It movie had around three songs all of them solos -two by Asha Bhonsle and one was by Amit Kumar. “Darwaza” released in 1978, was reasonably popular. I remember we were not allowed to see the movie as it was given an “Adults Only” certificate by the censor board, it was supposed to be a horror movie. I have not yet seen it, 🙂

So here we are wishing our dear Amit Kumar a very happy birthday (belated) with a song which, though not as popular as his “bade achche lagte hain” or other songs of his under R D Burman’s baton, is very soothing to the ears.


Song-Hosh mein ham kahaan (Darwaaza)(1978) singer-Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

hosh mein
hum kahaan
mil gaye ae
do dil jawaan
ye samaa
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na aa
hosh mein
hum kahaan
arre mil gaye
do dil jawaan
ye samaa
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na aa
hosh mein
hum kahaan
arre mil gaye
do dil jawaan

ho o o
ik aag si jaagi mere jazbaat mein
kaise ghata pyaasi rahe barsaat mein
o o
ik aag si jaagi mere jazbaat mein
kaise ghata pyaasi rahe barsaat mein
arre ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan

ho o o
mehke labon ki taazgi de do mujhe
pal bhar mere dil ki khushi de do mujhe
o o o
mehke labon ki taazgi de do mujhe
pal bhar mere dil ki khushi de do mujhe
ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan
ye sama
aisi waisi baaton mein kho jaaye na
hosh mein hum kahaan
arre mil gaye do dil jawaan
hosh mein
hmm hmm
arre mil gaye

Blog Day : 3970 Post No. : 15054

Peevesie’s mom is one blog regular who keeps in touch with me on phone almost on a regular basis. Nearly one month ago, she phoned to enquire whether my daughter was at Mumbai seeing that summer vacations had started in Mumbai colleges. So I informed her that my daughter, and also my wife, were on their way to join me for their respective vacations.

So it came as no surprise to Peevesie’s mom when my posts during the last month were reduced to a trickle.

Day before yesterday, Peevesie’s mom phoned me informing me that she had sent a late article in the evening and whether I would be able to post it. I informed her that I was on the job. She enquired why I was not posting my articles in the blog. I was posting guest articles all right but she was interested about my “man ki baat”” kind of articles. I informed her that my wife was still around and I would be able to post by “well” researched article only after I am away from the watchful eyes of my wife, which would be from the afternoon of 1 june 2019. 🙂

Then the talk veered to the TV programme that I was watching. She asked whether I was watching the world cup cricket match or the swearing in ceremony of Indian ministers. I informed her that I was watching the later, viz the swearing in ceremony.

We agreed that Indians were busy for the last one month and a half in General elections and now they would get busy following cricket world cup for the next one month and a half. Peevesie’s mom is not aware that I would stay busy after the cricket world cup as well, seeing that Premier Kabaddi League would start immediately after cricket world cup.

My wife stayed with me for nearly one month and she is leaving in the afternoon. So the excuse of there being no time for blogging will no longer be there for me. 🙂

There are lots of topics that I would have loved to discuss but I could not find time. I can even hold forth on a subject like “JCK ki khudaai” if I can find time and I apply my mind to it. 🙂 Yesterday, I was actually invited to watch “JCB ki khudaai” inside my workplace. 🙂

Right now, I was trying to post one article a day. Hopefully I will be in a position to be able to post several articles a day which used to happen so regularly in the past. I could try to turn the clock back a decade, when there used to be six or seven songs a day everyday. 🙂

“Badalte Rishte”(1978) was directed by R Jhalani for Vijayshree pictures Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, Reena Roy, Asrani, A K Hangal, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shubha Khote, Urmila Bhatt, Deena pathak, Master Raju, Omkar, Madan Joshi, Pardesi, Raja Duggal, Makhan Singh, Chandar Dhaani, Chandra Prabha, etc in it, with new discoveries Shashi Bala Saxena and Rachna Bhatt.

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

This song, the third song from the movie, is sung by Kishore Kumar and Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This “naa naa followed by haan haan” kind of “iqraar” song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Reena Roy.

This movie is from 1978, a year when I becan to watch movies with a vengeance. But I did not watch this movie and I was not aware of this song. So this song is a “new”song for me and I haerd this song for the first time today, more than four decades after this song was created.


Song-Tum chaahe hamko pasand na karo (Badalte Rishte)(1978) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

tum chaahe humko pasand na karo
par tum humko pasand ho
pasand ho
par tum humko pasand ho
chhaliya jo sau sau roop badle ae ae
wo humen kaise pasand ho
pasand ho
wo humen kaise pasand ho

chhaanv jaise baadal ki
dhoop jaise saawan ki
waise na jaane kis pal tum badlo
baat jaise sapne ki
rang jaise mausam ka
waise na jaane kis pal
tum badlo

deewaane ko kyun tadpaana
tum jo humen dil se pasand kar lo
apni to kismat buland ho
buland ho
apni to kismat buland ho
chhaliya jo sau sau roop badle ae ae
wo humen kaise pasand ho
pasand ho
wo humen kaise pasand ho

bin soche dil kho ke
pyaar mein paagal hoke
tum in bahaaron mein kabhi ee khoyi nahin
ye bahaaren bolengi
bhed dil ke kholengi
dil mein tumhaare siva to koi nahin
laakh manaaya dil na maana
hum kaise tumko pasand na karen
jab tum dil ko pasand ho
pasand ho
haan tum dil ko pasand ho
haan tum humko pasand ho
pasand ho
haan tum humko pasand ho
