#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet #(Birthday of Actor – Arun Govil )
——————————————-——————————

Today 12th January’2023 is the sixty-fifth birthday of actor Arun Govil. (He was born on 12th January’1958).

Arun Govil made his debut in Hindi Films in 1977 in the movie ‘Paheli’. However the main hero in this movie was Satyajeet. After ‘Paheli-1977’, he quickly graduated to lead roles in Rajshree Production movies such as ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin’, ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ and ‘Radha Aur Seeta’. All these three movies were released in the year ‘1979’. While ‘Raadha Aur Seeta’ didn’t fare well commercially, ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ was a highly successful movie of its time and ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin’ was also a decently successful movie though not on the scale of ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’.

Arun Govil shot to fame with the movie ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’. While he continued to act in movies further he didn’t get that kind of success as ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’. It was much later in 1987-1988 with the TV serial ‘Ramayan’ wherein he played ‘Lord Ram’ that he got the same success and fame. Earlier he had appeared in the TV serial ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ as well.

In between he acted in many movies, mostly as second lead or in supporting roles.

Today on the occasion of the birthday of Arun Govil we will enjoy a song from the movie ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin-1979’.

One well known song from this movie has been posted on the blog for the same occasion in 2018. I had been listening to this song since my growing up days. And I remember this song sung by Shailendra Singh was frequently played on radio then. Though it was a ‘negative song’ in the sense as it speaks of the ‘bebasi’ of the hero 🙂 (as Atul ji had mentioned while presenting this song on the blog in his post here).

While I was aware of this above song I had never attentively listened to the other songs from this movie till today. For this post I checked other songs of this movie and selected a song which has a special ‘touch of music of Raam-Laxman’. (It reminds me of his songs composed for Dada Kondke movies in Marathi.).

None of the songs of ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin-1979’ made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala of 1979’. And for that matter none of the songs of ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ also made it to the ‘top 35 songs of 1979’ (I wonder why?). Though, one song of this movie appeared in the ‘annual Binaca Geetmala list of 1980’ – ‘chaand jaise mukhde pe’ – which stood at no.20 among the top forty songs.

I like the songs of this movie very much and so when I came into contact with this blog I had shared some songs of this movie, while the most known song of this moviewwas already posted on the blog earlier.

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin-1979’ was directed by Satyen Bose for ‘Ruchi Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tarachand Barjatya.

It had Arun Govil, Madhu Kapoor, Urmila Bhatt, Arvind Deshpande, Baby Komal, Om Shivpuri, Gajanan Jagirdar, Amar Shan, Ram Mohan, Mushtaq Merchant, Javed Khan, Birbal, Surendra Kumar, Master Sandeep, C.S. Dubey, Datta Bhatt, Rajan Kapoor, Arjun Bakshi, Brajendra Mohan, Narbada Shankar, Pardesi, Mansaram, Mukund Bannerjee, Radheshyam Dixit, Taneja, Uma Khosla, Madhumita, Hansani Dutt, Veena Kapoor, Raj Verma, Albela and others.

The story idea of this movie was by Sharad Joshi. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Govind Moonis. Editing was done by Mukhtar Ahmed.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.03.1979. (Alphabetically the next movie of this year ‘1979’ was ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ which was passed by Censor Board on 31.08.1979. Whereas, the third movie of Arun Govil of this year which was ‘Raadha Aur Seeta-1979’, was passed by Censor Board on 27.06.1979
Music for all the three movies was composed by different music directors i.e. Rajkamal for ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’, Raam-Laxman for ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin’ and Ravindra Jain for ‘Raadha Aur Seeta’.).

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin” has five songs. four were written by Kulwant Jani and one by Ravinder Rawal.
Music for this movie was composed by Raam-Laxman.

Shailendra Sing and Usha Mangeshkar were the two singers whose voices featured in the songs of this movie.

Today’s song is routine ‘question-answer’ or ‘paheli’ (not very difficult one ) song between two lovers which is sung by Shailendra Singh and Usha Mangeshkar. Arun Govil and Madhu Kapoor lip-sync the song on screen.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and wish Arun Govil a ‘very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’ …

Lyrics for today’s song are by Kulwant Jani.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#10)

Today 27th November’2022 is the seventieth birth anniversary of Composer Singer Bappi Lahiri (27.11.1952-15.02.2022). He passed away this year on 15th February leaving behind the legacy of his ‘disco’ music and many other memorable songs in Hindi Film Music.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview). He has many records on his name and he has been conferred by many many awards time to time.
The first Hindi movie as a music composer was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.

I had mentioned in my earlier post on the blog that the song ‘Bambai se aaya mera dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was my first introduction with Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loud speakers or in orchestras.

After that I remember it was the songs of ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc. I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I never had watched these movies until now. But these songs had become very popular then. I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because in that summer vacation of 1983 after appearing the 10th board exams our group of friends would be listening to the songs of ‘Disco Dancer’ and ‘Nikaah-1983’ on cassette player.

Later on after getting connected with this blog and in the recent years I have come across many of his songs before the ‘disco era’ which in those years I was not aware that they were composed by him, but I liked them and have also shared few of them on the blog.

Still there are many of his songs which I get to listen on radio during my daily listening. There are many such songs which I had been listening and liking without knowing that they have been composed by Bappi Lahiri. I am trying to share them on the blog as possible.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Suraksha-1979’. Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri. I vaguely remember the posters mentioning ‘Gunmaster G-9’ of this movie in those years. I have yet to watch this movie.
This movie is going to make its debut on the blog today.

In the year ‘1979’ the following nine movies where Bappi Lahiri had composed the music were released.

Sno Name of the Film(Year) Date of Censor Board Certificate Lyricist/s
1 Aangan Ki Kali(1979) 15.05.1979 Shaily Shailendra
2 Ahsaas(1979) 23.10.1979 Indeevar, Ravindra Peepat
3 Aur Kaun?(1979) 05.01.1979 Amit Khanna
4 Do Hawaldaar(1979) 06.01.1979 Shaily Shailendra
5 Iqraar(1979) 10.09.1979 Kulwant Jani
6 Jaan E Bahaar(1979) 10.08.1979 Gauhar Kanpuri
7 Lahu Ke Do Rang(1979) 11.09.1979 Farooq Qaiser
8 Shikshaa(1979) 28.12.1978 Gauhar Kanpuri
9 Surakshaa(1979) 01.06.1979 Ramesh Pant, Farooq Qaiser

“Surakshaa-1979” was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for ‘Gopi Enterprises, Madras’.

It had Ranjeeta, Mithoon Chakravarty, Jeevan, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Mala Jaggi, Suresh Oberoi and others.

Tej Saproo and Balaji were introduced on the screen with this movie.

This movie has five songs released with seven sound tracks including one dialogue and one music sound track.

Ramesh Pant wrote four songs and Farooq Qaiser had written one song for this movie.

Today’s song is written by Farooq Qaiser. Singer of the song is Bappi Da himself with Annette and chorus.

This song is played while the titles of the movie are rolling. On screen we can see Mithoon Chakravarty lip-syncing the songs with beautiful girls around him.
This song is heard more nowadays in the musical reality shows where ever there are special episodes on Bappi Lahiri and Mithoon Chakravarty is special judge on the shows. He is a regular feature as ‘special jury’ at many such musical reality shows.

I don’t remember to have listened to this song frequently during those years when the movie was released. However this movie is said to be one of the successful movies of Mithoon Chakravarty then.

Let us now listen to today’s song and pay our tributes to Bappi Lahiri.

(Note – the second stanza mentioned below is not on the audio of this song it is played in the movie though.).

Hullo Atuldom

Todays’ song is from a forgotten movie of the late 1970s “Bagula Bhagat” (1979). It was directed by Harmesh Malhotra and produced by Gullu Sippy. It had a cast of Ashok Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Shabana Azmi, Kamini Kaushal, Padma Khanna, Mehmood Jr. etc. I think I saw a short video of the movie online somewhere and think I spied Anwar Hussain and Goga Kapoor as his henchman. It had music by Kalyanji Anandji and songs written by Anjaan. Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Amit Kumar and Asha Bhonsle as playback singers. The movie was written by Subhash Ghai and Bhalla.

I have no clue about the story of the movie, date of release etc. I landed on this movie in my quest for a song lip-synced by Ashok Kumar and sung by Kishore Kumar. I found the video of the movie on YouTube which is uploaded in three parts. It begins with a convict’s failed attempt at jumping a prison. Shatrughan Sinha plays a smart-alec who does small odd jobs of helping smugglers transport their illicit stuff for small remunerations. He is assigned a task by Anwar Hussain to help someone escape from prison.

The song with this post is when Shatru lands in prison to finish the assignment given and sees Ashok Kumar being hailed as a prisoner who is well known amongst inmates. Kishore Kumar is the voice for his brother Ashok Kumar and Amit Kumar sings for Shatru.

The song reminds of ‘do bechaare bina sahare’, from Victoria No. 203. There was a period in the 70s when we had many such Kishore Kumar- Ashok Kumar songs meaning Kishoreda singing for Dada Moni. And my hope is that we don’t run out of such songs as they are best to remember the brothers on their anniversaries. 13th October is Dada Moni Ashok Kumar’s birth anniversay and Kishoreda’s death anniversary. This pair of brothers have been responsible for entertaining audiences from the 30s when Dada Moni stepped into Bombay Talkies as lab assistant. And after a few years he stepped in front of the camera it is a different matter that he had not hankered after that career. He was busy in front of the screen for almost six decades.

Kishoreda, Dada Moni’s youngest brother, began his career as a chorus singer at Bombay Talkies and got his first independent break in 1948 with “Ziddi”. His first screen appearance may have been in 1946 “Shikari” which starred his older brother but he played the lead for the first time in 1951. He has more discography to his name compared to filmography. But this was one entertaining family where their sister was married to a producer, their other brother was also an actor. Amit Kumar followed his dad of being a singer/actor and Preethi Ganguly also went on to become an actor. Dada Moni’s granddaughter is actress Anuradha Patel, son-in-law was Deven Verma. So much talent in one family.

Thinking of the Ganguly brothers Ashok Kumar and Kishore Kumar .

badi taqleef hoti hai
machal ke jab bhi aankhon se
chhalak jaate hain do aansoon
machalke jab bhi aankhon se
chhalak jaate hain do aansoon
machal ke ae jab bhi aankhon se
chhalak jaate hain do aansoon

Hullo Atuldom

A few songs are playing in my head since morning.
1) Rimjhim gire saawan(Manzil)(1979)
2) Bheegi bheegi raaton mein (Ajnabi)
3) Tere mere pyaar ki jo baat chali (Aankh Michauli)
4) Aaj rapat jaayen to hamen na uthhaiyyo (Namak Halal)
5) Ab ke saawan mein jee darey (Jaise Ko Taisa)

No prizes for guessing the connection between these songs- they are all Rain songs. And why was I thinking of these songs? Giving the answer as “Rainy Season or Monsoon” (and India is having a fairly good monsoon I must say) doesn’t bring out the romance associated with these songs. But if we say that it is the month of “Saawan or Shravan” then the rains and the ‘jhoolas’ and all traditionally romantic Indian aspects play in our mind’s eye. As I set out to hear and see the above listed songs I also ended up hearing this less heard (unheard should be the correct word here) song “Jhoom jhoom naach rahi barkha bahaar hai (Duniya Kya Jaane)“. Then I went on to listen to a few ‘post Rain’ songs like ‘Ek ladki bheegee bhaagee si (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi)‘, ‘Roop tera mastaana (Aradhana)‘.

The trigger for the listening session was the program on Radio Ceylon this morning which gave me this rimjhim-gire-saawan-sulag-sulag-jaaye-man/ (in its one and half hour program). Of course radio Ceylon didn’t play the song as a ‘Rain Song’ but as a Kishore Kumar song. Why? Because today is KISHORE KUMAR’s birth anniversary. He would have been 93.

Almost all online HFM sharing portals and apps are putting out playlists which promise the listener hours of song listening pleasure. We at ASAD are a lot that is not satisfied with the regular lists, correct? No, NO. Don’t get me wrong. We are not upset when someone plays a song from ‘Jhumroo’, ‘Jewel Thief’, Blackmail’, ‘Manzil’, ‘Amar Prem’, ‘Rampur Ka Laxman’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’. ‘Lal Patthar’, etc. etc. Atulites don’t complain at the content present in the preset playlists anyone offers, we just go and make our own lists and from these we post songs that are great on the ears and not yet present on the blog.
Of course today I did hear a FUN- Kishore Kumar song which I haven’t heard before. It was from the 1968 release ‘Shrimaanji’ and it had lot of fun elements in it- the lyrics, the tune and accompanying sounds that Kishoreda excelled in. This is the song Iss duniyaa mein pyaare do kaam karnaa (Shrimaanji) .
I also heard one song that I had forgotten, Aansuon ko thhaam le (Chhotaa Baap).

What I am trying to show by posting the links to the songs which I heard today is that this blog has covered songs by Kishoreda in all his moods – many rare songs which were popular once upon a time but now forgotten are also there in this blog.

I was looking at the statistics page of the blog and found that the blog has 1283 songs of Kishoreda as singer, 33 as music director and 6 as lyricist. Looking up the stats is a fun job and here are some more numbers:-

144 songs of Kishoreda for Rajesh Khanna.
590 solo songs
21 duets with Shamshad Begum
13 duets with Geeta Dutt
19 duets with Mohd Rafi
only 1 duet with Mukesh
7 duets with Mannada songs
6 duets with Mahendra Kapoor songs

Here are some expected numbers:- 218 duets with Lata Mangeshkar and 263 with Asha Bhonsle.

The above are the numbers present on the blog and not what Kishoreda accomplished in his career. I would have loved to do a similar exercise of Kishoreda’s collaboration with lyricists and music directors to see the numbers that we have on the blog, maybe next time.

I have a whole set of songs in my mind across various genres and moods. I am settling for a song from a fun movie. The movie had Kishore Kumar as the producer, director, actor, music director, and singer. The cast had Amit Kumar, Yogita Bali, Mehmood, S.N. Banerjee, Jayshree T., Madan Puri, Bhagwan, and a host of supporting actors. It could possibly have been a launch vehicle for Amit Kumar as an actor and south Indian actress Jaya Sudha made her Hindi debut with this film- ‘Shabash Daddy’ (1979)

The other singers used in the movie were Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Sulakshana Pandit, and Mehmood. Irshad Jalili and Gulshan Bawra were two other lyricists of the movie.

I remember having seen it on release all those years ago in 1979 but don’t find it anywhere for repeat viewing. It was the story of a retired army officer Col. Chhaju Singh (Kishore Kumar) who falls in love with a beautiful fisher-woman when he has a son of marriageable age. There were a lot of comments back then that this was their family life playing out on screen as Kishore Kumar had just married Yogita Bali.

I am sure many purists will feel that today’s song shows Kishoreda grossly overacting. And not doing justice to the talent that he was. But that is the way he was – mostly too good and gross at times.

Thinking of the multi-talented highly energetic entertainer with this song written, composed and sung by Kishore Kumar. I feel that the female voice accompanying is of Yogita Bali (I may be wrong)

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 50
————————————————————————————–

Welcome all to this post under ‘blog ten-year challenge’ of ‘2012-2022’. Ten years ago, in the year 2012 the blog was around four years old and already going great in terms of ‘daily posts’ on the blog.

In the year ‘2008’ there were 475 songs posted on the blog from ‘July’ to ‘December-2008’. The average was around 3 songs or posts per day.

However, the blog celebrated a ‘musical feast’ for next four years I must say. Let us have a look on the total number of posts from ‘2009 to 2012’ on the blog as per following.

Year Total posts Average per day
2009 1768 4.84
2010 1167 3.20
2011 1819 4.98
2012 2071 5.66

We can see that the year ‘2012’ saw a total of ‘2071 posts’ at the rate of almost six songs per day. And that remains the ‘highest score’ for the blog in a ‘year’ so far, till date.

The next year i.e., ‘2013’ the figures tried hard to catch ‘2000’ but could reach to ‘1916’ posts only.

From here onwards i.e., the next four years viz. ‘2014’, ‘2015’, ‘2016’ and ‘2017’ the blog averaged 1159 posts per year at the rate of ‘03’ song posts per day.
And going further down in the next four years i.e., ‘2018’ to ‘2021’ the average rate of posts per year was 721 only at an average of ‘02’ songs per day.

And this year ‘2022’ till now, the average maintained so far again comes to 2 posts per day. 😊

So, we have seen that the year ‘2012’ was a very special year for the blog. Posts were raining down at the rate of ‘more than five’ per day.

Coming back to today’s day, 4th June, this date ten years back i.e., in 2012 saw as many as nine articles posted on the blog as per details given below.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Jo tum kar sakte ho main kar saktaa hoon badh ke Adaa(1951) All songs covered
Phool bagiya mein bhanwre aaye Zindagi Aur Khwaab(1961) All songs covered
Dil mera tumhaari adaayein le gayi Gauri(1968) All songs covered
Pathh bhoola ke aaya musaafir Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein(1964) All songs covered
Mere yaar tu chhod gham Love In Canada(1979) 01 of 04 songs posted
Ek to soorat pyaari aur oopar se ye naaz Vallaah Kya Baat Hai(1962) All songs covered
Kayi din se dil hai bekal Dulhan Ek Raat Ki(1966) All songs covered
Ye waqt na kho jaaye Raaste Pyaar Ke(1982) 03 of 06 songs posted
Raaste mein ik haseen Basant(1960) 11 of 14 songs posted

From the above table we can see that out of the nine movies represented on the blog on 04.06.2012 six movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’.

That leaves us with three movies viz. ‘Love in Canada-1979’, ‘Raaste Pyaar Ke-1982’ and ‘Basant-1960’ that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Love In Canada-1979’.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions in the ‘addenda’ for this movie that this movie was an imported movie from the year ‘1979’.

‘Love in Canada-1979’ was directed by S. Ramnathan for ‘Tyagi Films Limited’. It had Vinod Mehra, Maushumi Chatterjee, Shelly Homik (Miss Teen Canada/new discovery), Jeetendra (in special appearance), Asrani, Aruna Irani, Iftekhar, Indrani Mukherji, Abrar Alvi, and others.

This movie had four songs (including one two-part song). Lyrics for three songs (including one two-part song) were written by Yogesh and one song was penned by Sharon Prabhakar.

Music for this movie was composed by Hemant Kumar.

Mohd Rafi, Hemant Kumar, Arti Mukherjee, Lata Mangeshkar, and Sharon Prabhakar had given their voices to the song of this move.

This movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time, though it seems to be available on internet, I had not watched this movie. All songs from this movie are new for me.
Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra who has also shared the links of the song and link of the movie too, with other details of this movie.

As mentioned above Lyrics for the today’s song are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Let us listen to the today’s song now which has good meaningful verses …

I hope readers will enjoy this song …

Blog Day :

5058 Post No. : 16972

Today 24th May’2022 is the (1 October 1919 − 24 May 2000) twenty-second ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of legendary lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri.

On our blog more than one thousand one hundred songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri are already posted.

Today 24th May’2022 is sixty-seventh birth anniversary (born on 24th May’1955) of Music Director (& lyricist too) Rajesh Roshan.
As per statistics mentioned on the blog Rajesh Roshan has composed music for more than 842 songs. Out of these 842 songs, 153 songs are covered in the blog.

Majrooh Sultanpuri as a lyricist, and Rajesh Roshan as a music-director have collaborated in many movies. They have given Hindi Films many memorable compositions.

Their association started with Rajesh Roshan’s debut movie ‘Kunwaaraa Baap-1974’ and continued till ‘Kya Kehna-2000’, in between delivering many hit, popular and memorable songs.

Today we are going to listen to one such composition where the lyrics are written by Majrooh ji and music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The today’s song is from the movie ‘Janta Hawaldar-1979’.

“Jantaa Hawaldaar-1979” was directed by Mehmood for ‘Balaji Pictures, Bombay’.

It was produced by Manoherlal P. Chhabria and Manoher P. Jaisingh.

It had Ashok Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Yogita Bali, Kanhaiyyalal, Shailendra, Leela Chitnis, Lalita Pawar, Dhoomal, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Coca Cola, Bhushan Tiwari, Shobhana, Narendra Nath, Shobha Khote, Mehmood and others.

Hema Malini had a ‘above all’ appearance in this movie.

Abrar Alvi was the writer of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Vishwanath Narvekar. Story of this movie was written by Mehmood.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.01.1979.

Here is a brief about this movie as mentioned on ‘Wikipedia’.

Janta Havaldar (transl. The people’s Havildar) is a 1979 Indian Hindi-language film directed by Mehmood, with Rajesh Khanna playing the title role, paired opposite Yogita Bali. The film has Ashok Kumar and Hema Malini making extended guest appearances. This film was not commercially successful at the time of its release. However, over the years, the film has been appreciated by the audiences in its screening on television and has gained a cult following over the years. This movie has songs sung by a newcomer Anwar as Kishore Kumar refused to sing for the movie as it had his ex-wife Yogita Bali in the lead.

This movie has five songs (including one two-part song), all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this movie was composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Here is the list of songs this movie has (along with their status on the blog).

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Age Julekha kahaan hai ri tu Mehmood, Eunuchs Yet to be posted
02 Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein Anwar Being discussed today
03 Aadhi roti saara kabaab Lata, Anwar, chorus 29.12.2018
04 Sa re ga ma pa dha ni sa …O kimaam Ali khan Usha Mangeshkar, Mehmood, chorus Yet to be posted
05 a) Hamse ka bhool huyi (part 1) Anwar 29.12.2013
05 b) Thokaren hamko qubool raah kisi ko mil jaaye (part 2) Anwar 29.12.2013

Today’s song is sung by Anwar. It is lip synced by Rajesh Khanna. Also seen in the picturization of this song is Yogita Bali. One stanza of this song is repeated as sad version (in background I presume) which is available in the audio link only.

Two well known songs from this movie have been discussed by Peevesie’s Mom ji on the blog and incidentally both were discussed on the birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna.

Today’s song is also a well known and popular song from this movie. I think this song should be in top songs of Majrooh Sultanpuri (and for composer Rajesh Roshan too). Anwar is the singer of this soulful song. In fact, this should also be in ‘top songs’ list of songs sung by Singer Anwar.

Let us listen to the today’s song now…

तेरी आँखों की चाहत में

Blog Day :

5047 Post No. : 16960

Today 13th May’2022 is the seventy-sixth birthday of Shri Bishwanath Chatterjee compiler of Hindi Film Geet Kosh Vol-V (1971-1980). Those who have the copy of this Geet Kosh would have read about his brief introduction on the cover page no.2 of this Geet Kosh.
He has also been a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for HGK Vol-I to Vol-IV etc. and a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for the ‘List of Hindi Films (Talkie) – 1931-1987.

He has also been a co-author/co-editor with Vishwas Nerurkar for the books on Khayyam Saab, Kishore Kumar, Vasant Desai and Sudhir Phadke.

Here is a brief about him as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) by Devi Shankar Kanojiya and other details which Shri Chatterjee shared with me. (Devi Shankar Kanojiya a family friend is younger to Bishwanath ji by five years and settled at Kanpur now. He was earlier working in Telecom department of Government of India.).

Bishwanath Chatterjee was born on 13th May’1946 at Nagpur. He is born and brought up at Nagpur only. After his studies he joined the Department of Audit & Accounts (Postal). (This department was later bifurcated in two i.e., Accounts and Audit being separate departments.)
His first posting was at Jaipur (for Jaipur circle) where he stayed for one year i.e. 1970-1971. His next posting was at Bhopal where he stayed till 14.05.1980 and was transferred to Nagpur w.e.f.15.05.1980.
He retired in May’2006 as Director of Accounts (Postal) and now settled in Nagpur. He has a daughter who is happily married and stays abroad with her family. She has a son.

It so happened that around 1966 Bishwanath ji got interested in Hindi Film Music, or rather the HFM attracted him so much that after two years i.e., around 1968 a thought to compile the details of all songs till date, then stems in his mind.
However, in absence of sufficient and required resources he had to suppress the idea temporarily but a strong urge to have such a compilation has already taken deep roots in his mind.
In ‘1975’ he got to know about Harmandir Singh Hamraaz ji through the weekly ‘Screen’ and came into contact with him. He came to know that Hamraz ji was also working on a similar project and in fact almost 50% work of compiling such information has been completed by Hamraz ji till then. So he decided to support full heartedly to Hamraaz ji. And he has been instrumental in preparing the ‘manuscript’ for the first four volumes of ‘Geet Kosh’ and after that he independently compiled the ‘Geet Kosh – Vol-V’.

He also accompanied Shri Hamraaz ji in extensive travels to places like Bombay, Poona, Indore, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Calcutta, for gathering information and meeting various film personalities and film connoisseurs to get accurate information as possible.

In between, in the year of 1975 he founded ‘Saurabh Radio Shrota Sangh’ at Nagpur and also published ‘Saurabh-1977’ (as a co-editor). But due to economic constraints he had to discontinue this publication.

Shri Chatterjee has been a ‘passionate’ student of Hindi Film Music and has keen interests in Hindustani Classical Music. He has his own library consisting of lot of books about films and Geet & Ghazals.

I got a chance to meet him once during my stay at Nagpur in 2015-2017, where our regular reader Shri Avinash Shravane was also with us. It was a ‘film screening’ program by ‘Cine Montage, Nagpur’.
I left Nagpur on 09.03.2017 and since then I am in touch with him on phone-calls. As very rightly mentioned by Shri Kanojiya ji, Bishwanath ji is very humble, generous, enthusiastic and extremely sensible person.

Yesterday evening when I called him he was very happy and enthusiastic as ever. We discussed many topics and shared our thoughts too.

Once again I wish him a very happy birthday today, and a healthy and peaceful, yet’ full of music’al life ahead.

When I think about him I find the today’s song perfectly fit for this occasion as the ‘fragrance of his works and words – in the form of ‘Geet Kosh’ will be there forever –spreading the ‘spring’ of ‘nostalgia and memories’ for generations together.

‘Zindagi phoolon ki nahin
Phoolon ki tarah aa aa mehki rahe ae …’

Today’s song is from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Griha Pravesh’.

‘Griha Pravesh’ was directed by Basu Bhattacharya.

Basu Bhattacharya was also the writer and producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Shamila Tagore, Sarika, Master Bittoo, Sudha Chopra, Manik Dutt, Vimal Joshi, Raj Verma, Nandlal Sharma, R.S. Chopra, Satay Bannerjee, Shashi Jain, Tarun Mujherjee, Nilesh, Khoka Mukherjee, Danny, Master Bharat, and Nitin Sethi.

“Naukar” (1979) was produced by Ismail Memon & Govind Ahuja, directed by Ismail Memon, music was composed by R D Burman and the songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers used for the five songs, three of which are on the blog.

Ankhiyon mein chhote chhote sapne sajaay ke was a song which came twice in the movie- once when Sanjeeev Kumar is singing to put his daughter to sleep and once when Jaya Bhaduri sings; i.e. there is a Lata Mangeshkar version and a Kishore Kumar version.
Pallo latke re mhaaro pallo latke is the other song.

On a recent trip to Rajasthan I heard this later song being sung by the local folk singers and R D Burman may have been inspired by them is the thought I had.

This was a long-in-the-making movie as Jaya Bhaduri had retired from acting post marriage and kids. Also the makers were said to have run into financial trouble. It was in the making since 1973 and that was the initial cause of the delay. It was finally completed five years later and turned out to be a hit and also earned Jaya Bhaduri a best actress award – must have made those distributors who thought that she was a cold proposition eat their words.Emoji

The movie was the story of a wealthy widower Amar (Sanjeev Kumar) who swaps his identity with his servant Dayal (Mehmood) when he sets out to look for a bride who will be a good mother to his daughter too. He lands up in the house of Shanti Swarup (Manmohan Krishna) and Durga Devi (Lalita Pawar) who have daughters of marriageable age -Madhu Malini and Meena T.

But the girls have other plans- one falls in love with Dayal and the other is in love with Vijay (Shailendra Singh) who happens to be Dayal’s brother.

There is one more entity in the Shanti Swarup household- Geeta (Jaya Bhaduri) who happens to be Durga Devi’s friend’s daughter who is treated as a non-entity by Durga Devi and her daughters.

Amar -‘the Naukar’ and his daughter take a liking to Geeta who also has a soft-corner for the motherless child.

So that then is the synopsis of this movie which we are revisiting today after 9 years (last post for this movie was on 04-04-2013) on the occasion of the 74th birthday of Jaya Bhaduri who married Amitabh Bachchan to become Jaya Bachchan, mother of Abhishek & Shweta Bachchan, mother-in-law to Aishwarya Rai & Nikhil Nanda and grand mother of Navya Naveli, Agastya & Aradhya.

She was born in Jabalpur to Tarun Kumar & Indira Bhaduri and made her acting debut in a Bengali film directed by Satyajit Ray “Mahanagar” (1963) at the age of 15. Her Hindi film debut came in 1971 “Guddi” (this is known worldwide).

Let us wish this highly talented actress, who acted in just 32 films upto 1975 – Sholay, Mili and Chupke Chupke were her 1975 releases. She returned to films with ‘Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Ma’ in 1998. Of course, she lent her voice to the characters played by Tina Munim and Poonam Dhillon in “Yeh Vaada Raha” and played a small role in Mehmood’s “Ek Baap Aur Chhe Bete”. She came out of retirement for ‘Silsila’ in 1981.

Wishing Jaya Bhaduri health happiness and joy on her birthday.

Song-Aaya na karo gudiya mere paas (Naukar)(1979) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
dukh mera sun ke tum ho jaaogi udaas
aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
dukh mera sun ke tum ho jaaogi udaas

main toh woh hoon
ke duniya mein aaye hain jo
aansoon peene ke liye
mera jeena kya jeena
ke jeeti hoon main
yoonhi jeene ke liye
sapna koi na koi aas
aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
dukh mera sun ke tum ho jaaogi udaas

mujhko mamta ki pyaasi tumhaari nazar
kar deti hai bekaraar
maa ke aanchal ka saaya main de na sakoon
kitna chaahoon baar baar
kuchh bhi nahin hai mere paas
aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
aaya na karo
gudiya mere paas
dukh mera sun ke tum ho jaaogi udaas
hmm hmmm hmmm hmm hmm
hmmm hmm hmmm hmm hmm
hmmm hmm hmmm hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
