Hullo Atuldom

“Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki” was a 1978 movie produced and directed by Raj Khosla. it was given certificate on 14th July 1978 and released on 4th August 1978. It starred Nutan, Asha Parekh, Vinod Khanna, Vijay Anand, Deb Mukherji, Neeta Mehta and introduced Geeta Behl to Bollywood. The movie was based on the Marathi novel “Ashi Tujhi Preet” by Chandrakant Kakodkar. The songs were written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Laxmikant- Pyarelal.

The story was of an aristocrat (Vijay Anand) who falls in love with a dancer (Asha Parekh) whom he has rescued but he can’t marry as his mother has lined up a girl- Nutan (Sanjukta) from a family of equal social standing which he obeys on being forced by the dancer. He has a child from each of them but the dancer dies after giving birth to the child. And soon the Thakur also dies in a riding accident leaving his legal wife in-charge of bringing up both the kids. She admits Tulsi’s child in a boarding school and brings him home when he grows up and confesses publicly that he (Vinod Khanna) is her husband’s son. Then the movie goes through a few twists and turns where the legitimate son (Deb Mukherji) does a lot of illegitimate and wrong activities for which the other son takes all the blame. There comes a point when he- Vinod Khanna- leaves the house but returns on learning that there is a threat to his brother’s life and comes to his rescue. And then the movie ends on a happy note.

The movie had seven songs of which the title song “Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki” was posted by Atulji on 2nd August, 2011. That song runs through the length of the movie with the sad part “main tera kya le jaungi” (which Prakashchandraji has provided in the comments section) coming twice in the movie. There is one more sad part “mat ro behna andar jake” which too Prakashchandraji has posted as comment along with the other sad version in November 2015. So that accounts for three songs. Two other songs “chaap tilak sab chheeni re” and possibly the only song in the movie with some romance in it “yeh khidki jo bandh rehti hai” have also been posted.

Today’s song (the sixth from the movie) runs through 3 minutes of the titles which stop in the middle and restart after Asha Parekh (Tulsi) runs away through the window. The song is used to establish that Asha Parekh plays the character of a NAUTCH girl or tawaif in simple language. It is sung on- screen by a lady whose name is not there in the titles but of-screen, meaning playback is by Shobha Gurtu.

Shobha Gurtu was an accomplished Hindustani Classical singer who made a name singing light classical music, mainly Thumris, and had an “Abhinaya filled” full throated voice.

Born in Belgaum, Karnataka on 8th February 1925, and initially trained by her mother Menekabai Shirodkar in the Jaipur- Atruali Gharana style of Hindustani classical singing she specialised in Thumri, Dadra, Kajri, Hori etc.

Possibly the first time I sat up and took notice of a singer who had a voice which was different from that of the reigning singers of that period was when I heard “sainyya doli leke aaye tere dwaar” from “Shraddanjali” in 1981. But I don’t consider myself a yardstick to measure a great singer. But I must say as I sat to write this post and ran through the list of songs sung by Shobha Gurtu (8 february 1925-27 september 2004) in Hindi movies, my jaw dropped as I found she had started with “Pakeezah” in 1972 and “Phagun” in 1973. And also, that I know many of the Hindi film songs sung by her without knowing details about the song.

Remembering her today (8 february 2018) with this song. She would have been 93.

“Swarg Narak”(1978) was Produced by B Nagi Reddi and directed by Dasari Narayan Rao for Vijaya Productions Pvt Ltd.(Madras). The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Jeetendra,Vinod Mehra, Moushumi Chatterjee, Shabana Azmi,Shobhini Singh, Kamini Kaushal,Farita Boyce,Helen,Vijayalakshmi,Baby Gowri,Baby Sumathi,Paintal,Aditya,Vimal Sahu, Swaraj Kumar, Prem Kumar, Saleem,Subba Rao,Madhukar,Kiran, Pandey,Ram Mohan, Muthalif. In addtions, Madan Puri,A.K.Hangal,Prema Narayan made special appearances, while ITanuja made a friendly appearance. Other friendly appearances were by Jagdeep, Om Shivpuri, Raj Mehra, Shammi, Vikram Gokhale, Komilla Virk, Birbal, Pandhari Bai, Adil Aman etc.

The movie was a typically Chandamama magazine kind of tale, because it was a made by the owners of Chandamama. The movie had four songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Despite being aware that only one song was left to be covered, I was unable to cover the final song from the movie. For one, this is a rather complicated song. HFGK mentions it as a song in two parts, viz part a sung by Lata and part b sung by Christine. In reality it is one continous song where one stanza is a sung by Lata in Sanskrit and that is followed by one stanza in English by Christine and so on. The full audio of the song is rather elusive.

The sanskrit portion is basically shloks from Geeta. HFGK mentions them as shloks number 20 and 22 from chapter II and shlok number 34 from chapter 9. The English portion are penned by Harindranath Chattopadhyay. The picturisation shows a devout wife (played by Shabana Azmi reciting Geeta Shloks) in a bid to save the life of her mother in law whereas the wayward husband (played by Vinod Mehra) is drinking in a bar in the company of disagreeable people such as Komila Virk. There isone bar dancer (I am unable to identify her) who lip syncs the English song.

Movie audience were supposed to sympathise and praise the devout lady and abuse the wayward man. I had watched this movie (duly bunking my college classes) and had joined the mainstream audience in reacting in the predictable way.

Here is this elusive song, with tough lyrics since they are in Sanskrit and English. 🙂 All the hard work of noting down the lyrics are done by Prakashchandra who has also provided all the details about the movie.

With this song, “Swarg Narak”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from a film called ‘College Girl’ from 1978.  It is produced by Shantilal Soni and directed by SD Narang. The star cast includes Sachin, Bindiya Goswami, Rita Bhadhuri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Urmilla Bhatt, Paintal, Bhagwan, Heena Kausar, Sudhir, Shobhana Shah, Jagdish Raj, Karan Diwan, Chand Usmani amongst others.

The film has seven songs of which the most famous is “Pyar Manga Hai Tumhi Se Na Inkaar Karo” which is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Indeevar. This is already posted on our blog. Another song by Mohd. Rafi “Phoolon Ki Tarah Wo Hansti Thi” which is penned by Dev Kohli has also been posted. And I agree with Atul ji, as he has written in that post – If Bappi Lahiri’s songs like this did not get popular then one should not blame him for later on composing songs of the nature that required less creativity but yielded rich dividends for him.”

Now here is the third song from the movie. This is another surprise from Bappi Lahiri. First, it is a bhajan and he has Bharat Vyas (!!!) as the lyricist. Ok it is in Yesudas’s voice, not surprising as Yesudas has sung for Bappi Lahiri in ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ and ‘Haisiyat’. But when I came across this song the surprises didn’t end. The song is lip-synced by Dr. Shriram Lagoo. I can think of only one or two other movies where Shriram Lagoo has had songs to lip sync – one in ‘Dooriyan – “Khota Paisa Nahin Chalega” (playback by KN Sharma) and the other in ‘Kinaara’ – “Meethe Bol Boley Boley Paayaliya“(playback by Bhupinder).

The bhajan starts at the home and then the family proceeds to a temple which reminds me of a temple attached to an ashram in Mumbai’s Vile Parle area, which I have frequented a number of times before marriage. It was a very peaceful place with lot of space for us children to run about. Going by what we see in the song it looks like Bindiya is sad about something as her eyes are constantly moist and Rita Bhadhuri looks like the more playful of the two sisters. Chandrani Mukherjee’s is the female voice in this song.

Yesterday, 10th January was Yesudas’ birthday. He turned 77. He is a maestro of classical music and is a huge fan of his guru Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar, Dr. M Balamurali Krishna and Mohd Rafi. Having started his playback career in the 60s in Malayalam followed by the other South Indian languages his Hindi debut came in 1971; though the first movie that released with a song sung by him is ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ in 1976 followed by ‘Chitchor’. He then went on to sing for many Bollywood movies. He has been awarded the Padmashri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has won the national award seven times for best playback singing. He has sung in almost all Indian languages except Konkani, Assamese and Kashmiri. Just as the “Venkateswara Suprabhatam”, the good morning shloka played at Balaji temple in Tirupathi, is associated with MS Subbalakshmi, “Harivarasanam” – the good night shloka played at Ayyappa Temple in Sabarimala – is in the voice of KJ Yesudas.

Wishing a belated happy birthday to the ‘Gana Gandharva Dasettan’, as the Malayalees love to address him, alias Yesudas.

Song – Nahin Chaahiye Rang Mahal (College Girl) (1978) Singer – Yesudas, Chandrani Mukherji, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Bappi Lahidi
Yesudas + Chandrani

Lyrics

nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali hooo
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
nahi chahiye heere moti. . .
nahi chahiye heere moti
na ratnon ki khaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
kisi ke aage hath na phailaayen. . .
apni mehnat ka sukh paaye
itna de vardaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali ho
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

नहीं चाहिए रंग महल
ना धन दौलत की शान
हम तो मांगें तुझसे मालिक
एक संतोष का दान
के घर घर में खुशहाली हो
सदा सुख की हरियाली हो॰॰॰
नहीं चाहिए रंग महल
ना धन दौलत की शान
हम तो मांगें तुझसे मालिक
एक संतोष का दान

तूने हमको जनम दिया है
तू ही पालनहार
तेरी दया से फूलें फलें
हम सबका घर संसार
तूने हमको जनम दिया है
तू ही पालनहार
तेरी दया से फूलें फलें
हम सबका घर संसार
नहीं चाहिये हीरे मोती॰॰॰
नहीं चाहिये हीरे मोती
ना रत्नों की खान
हम तो मांगें तुझसे मालिक
एक संतोष का दान

सुख के बदले दुख देने की
अगर भावना तेरी
दुख को सहने की शक्ति दे
यही प्रार्थना मेरी
सुख के बदले दुख देने की
अगर भावना तेरी
दुख को सहने की शक्ति दे
यही प्रार्थना मेरी
किसी के आगे हाथ ना फैलाएँ॰॰॰
अपनी मेहनत का सुख पाएँ
इतना दे वरदान
हम तो मांगें तुझसे मालिक
एक संतोष का दान

The small girl in the song with this post celebrates her 52nd birthday today—unbelievable she is so young. The birthday list on our blog says she is 1965 born, also the Filmfare awards list page says she was all of 15 when in 1980 she won the Best Supporting Actress award for her depiction of a rape victim (in ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’). She seems to have been around forever. I just do not want to use the phrase ‘past her prime.’ Come to think of it she is younger to the Khans who are ruling the industry these days.

Under this series today we have this beautiful ‘Sufi Qawwali’ composed by C.Arjun and which is written by none other than Sahir Ludhianvi for the movie ‘Nawaab Sahib-1978’. I have vague memories of watching this movie in late seventies or early eighties, but I do not remember much about this movie or its story line. The only memory of this movie that I had carried over in my growing years and thereafter was this song ‘Hum Mein Hai Kya Ke Hamen Koi Haseena Chaahe’ sung by Mohd Rafi.

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

Here is a song from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. It is written by Anjaan and Kalyanji Anandji are the music directors. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar.

This movie had great songs. All Eight of them. But a lousy story line (I can see a whole lot of Atulites chuckling right Rajaji?)

Yesterday (27 april 2017), sometime around noon, I got to hear the very sad news that Vinod Khanna had passed away.
I had logged onto Twitter for a bit – and immediately saw a tweet saying “One of the most handsome actors of Hindi movies. RIP”. My heart sank. Soon it was clear that the person being discussed, and now trending as a hashtag, was our own beloved Vinod Khanna.

Recently a picture of Vinod Khanna had been circulating on social media. It shocked many (including myself) as it showed him in a very frail condition. I, for one, was not even aware that he was ailing. But nowadays, with advances in medical science, you tend to expect recovery, especially for someone barely 70.

It was not to be.

The end was therefore unexpected for me – and I think, for many.

This post under this series is not in chronological order as far as my ongoing reminiscences about Rajesh Khanna movies are concerned. But this post fits in this series about Rajesh Khanna. This particular movie “Chakravyooh”(1978) was critically acclaimed for the performance of Rajesh Khanna as also for ‘its offbeat story line’ which was at variance with typical Rajesh Khanna-romantic movies that we were used to.
