#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

(The movie – ‘Saaraansh-1984’)

“Saaraansh-1984” is a landmark movie in the careers of director Mahesh Bhatt and debutant actor Anupam Kher.

The two songs in the movie were composed by Ajit Varman. A detailed writeup on him was posted in the blog, penned by Peevesie’s mom jee.

Varman, born in Calcutta in 1947, was fascinated by Music from early childhood, and had a flair for it. He ran away from home when he was sixteen. Living rough for the next few years, he learnt music (vocals, piano, harmonium, drums ) on the go. He calls piano a ‘complete musical instrument. He would loiter about while a church choir sang or would peep into Salil Chaudhary’s home when he was rehearsing a tune. Noting the boy’s interest in music Salil Da took him at musician in his orchestra. He got a chance to work with Pankaj Mullick, Satyajit Ray and Hemant Kumar too.

Varman came to Bombay (Mumbai) in 1970 to join Salil Da, who was an established composer by then. The soft bongo in Anand’s ‘kahin door jab din dhhal jaaye’ was played by Varman. A chance encounter with music arranger Sebastian D’ Souza opened the doors to the orchestra of Shankar-Jaikishan who were working on ‘Mera Naam Joker’. He later worked with Laxmikant-Pyarelal too.

The credits of low budget Muslim social ‘Noor E Ilaahi-1976’ shows Babloo-Dheeraj as music directors. Babloo actually is the nickname of Ajit Varman. The songs were well received, but, the partnership didn’t last.

(Among beautiful Sufiyana Qawwalis, romantic duets and bidai songs, there is a good rendition by Anwar of Bahadur Shah Jafar’s ‘Na kisi ki aankh ka noor hoon’, immortalized by Rafi Saab and S.N. Tripathi in Laal Quilaa-1960.).

Varman and Govind Nihalani stayed in the same lodge in Bandra (?) and Nihalani was aware of Varman’s prowess for and ability in music. ‘If ever, I become a director, you will be my composer’ the ace cinematographer had said. He kept his word when he debuted as a director with ‘Aakrosh-1980’. The gripping tale had fitting back ground music and for the song ‘kaanha re’ Varman received ‘Sur-Singaar Samsad’s’ Swami Haridas award. He recreated the magic again in Nihalani’s next movie ‘Vijeta-1982’ and ‘Ardh-Satya-1983’.

He worked with Mahesh Bhatt in ‘Saaraansh-1984’, ‘Janam-1985’ and ‘Jeewan Sandhya-1984 (Tele film). His total movies are about twenty plus. ‘Yeh Aashiqui Meri’ was his last. ‘Life is Beautiful-20212’ has his back ground score.

He took pride in being a musician, arranger, conductor and composer all himself. He scored music for several ‘tele-serials’ – Imtihaan, Agni, Apne Jaise types.

Believing firmly in work ethics and not lobbying for work, the assignments stopped coming. Married twice, both marriages ended in divorce. I think he had one son and one daughter. Poverty and ill-health led to depression. He died a lonely death in a Mumbai Hospital on 15th December’2016. The neighbors had to pool money for his treatment and funeral with zero help/attendance from the film industry.

The song under discussion is the second and final song of ‘Saaraansh’. Touching lyrics by Vasant Dev, beautifully sung by Amit Kumar (who sang the most number of Varman’s songs). The picturisation will make you emotional with ‘dard’ almost palpable on Anupam Kher’s face. Rohini Hattangadi, Soni Razdan, Madan Jain are among the others seen here.

Vasant Dev received the ‘best lyricist’ award at the 32nd National Film Awards.

With this song ‘Saaraansh-1984’ gets ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Perhaps it is the first time when a movie with more than one song is being ‘Yippeeee’ed on the same day of its debut.

I am immensely grateful to dear Avinash ji for his technical support/assistance. He did it willingly as if it were his own post. I stand indebted Avinash ji. But, the troubles have just started for you Avinash ji!! 🙂

Let us listen to this song, “har ghadi dhhal rahi shaam hai”- just as sun is setting in the west.

Tribute to Lata Mangeshkar – 2

Yaraa seeli seeli
birha ki raat ka jalnaa
dholaa seeli seeli
yeh bhi koyi jeenaa hai
yeh bhi koyi marnaa

O how slow is the night(lamp)
Burning to ambers, Oh love
Oh love, the slow burn
of the lonely lamp.
is this way of the living?
Or it is the way of the dead.

tooti hui choodiyon se
jodoon yeh kalaayi main ae
pichhli gali mein jaane
kya chhod aayi main
beetee huyi galiyon se ae
phir se guzarna yaraa

broken are they,
the bangles I try to adorn.
(They were whole once-my loved ones)
In the lane behind me,
What have I left behind.
(something in the previous life)
Those same lanes, call me,
I must pass by them again, love.

pairon mein na saaya koyi
sar pe na saayin re
mere saathh jaaye naa
meri parchhaayi re
baahar ujaalaa hai
andar veeraana

No one beside me, no shade (for feet).
No Lord(benevolent),
even to care for me.
No one goes with me,
not even my shadow.
All brightness is on the outside.
Inside it is all dark and desolate, my love.

In 1990, I was fascinated with this song. Not seen the song anywhere, only heard it on the radio. I don’t remember what else I knew about it, only that Dimple Kapadia was the actress, singing this on screen. I was working in a private firm’s office in Santacruz. There was this girl working there called ‘Heather’, who was looking to change jobs. She asked me to accompany her for interview somewhere at Bandra. In my turn, I also persuaded her to come with me to watch this movie at Liberty Cinema. After the interview, we reached the city and were late for the movie. It had already started, and ‘Heather tried to change my mind, about wasting the ticket money. But having gone so far, I was not in the mood to go back home without watching the movie. It was 3 to 3:30, almost 1 hour of the movie was over. We got the tickets and went inside the hall. In that red carpeted hall, it was as if we were alone in there. Soon interval came, and to our astonishment, there was no one to be seen. Heather said it is not safe to sit in there for us 2 girls and we should just get out. Finally, some I came to my senses we left the cinema.

That incident in 1991, and my ‘khwaahish’ to see this movie remained unfulfilled. Until a few years ago, when I again remembered this film and saw it on YouTube. Ah! What would we have done without YouTube. All the while I was listening to this song, and may have seen it somewhere on TV. Or found it on YouTube.

The awards list of this song is also impressive.
• 1991 – Filmfare Awards – Best Lyricist – Gulzar
• 1990 – National Film Awards – Best Female Playback Singer – Lata Mangeshkar
• 1990 – National Film Awards – Best Lyrics – Gulzar
Trivia:
This song was based on the Punjabi song “Ve Main Chori Chori” composed and sung by the Pakistani folk artist Reshma.
The folk flavour of this song, and the fresh analogies that Gulzar has made in lyrics of this song, made it very special. The super rendition by Lata Mangeshkar has also won her the National Award, yet again.

The following 3 songs are posted in the blog.

Song Date of posting
Main ek sadi se baithhi hoon 6 February 2022
Suniye jee araj mhaaro 26 October 2012
Surmayee shaam is tarah aaye (Lekin) 18 august 2022

This song is a significant one as the film music scene was just picking up, sufiana and Punjabi folk was gaining momentum. Here again, the relevance of Lata Mangeshkar, as a grand doyen of female playback singers, was established. She was singing for R. D. Burman, Laxminkant Pyarelal, of the old brigade and also for new breed of musician through the 90’s.

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

(The movie – ‘Saaraansh-1984’, and tribute to Singer Bhupinder Singh)

Some movies touch you deeply, pull at your heart strings and get embedded permanently in your very being. It could be due the theme, the direction, or in the majority of the instances, the performances.

A few that have had such an effect on me are BOOT POLISH, MOTHER INDIA, SAHAB BIBI AUR GHULAM, DOST, KASTURI NIVASA (Kannada), MAUSAM, MOONRAM PIRAI (original Tamil version of Sadmaa), MASOOM, NAYAGAN, RUDAALI, BLACK.

The movie that is making its debut on the blog today is one such movie.

“SAARAANSH-1984” where a 29 year old NSD Graduate Anupam Kher debuted in the role of a 65 years old retired School Teacher, moved me to the very core. Kher’s acting and Mahesh Bhatt’s direction was superb in this movie.

Bhatt wrote the story, screenplay (with Sujit Sen), and dialogues written by Sujit Sen and Amit Khanna made the movie an emotional roller coaster ride. Able support was provided by Rohini Hattangadi, Neelu Phule, and Suhas Bhalekar.

Soni Razdan, Madan Jain, Akash Khurana, Alok Nath etc were in the cast.

Produced by Tarachand Barjatya of Rajshri Pictures the other credits of this movie are as;
Cinematography – Adeep Tandon, Editing-David Dhawan, Costumes-Amal Allana, Make up-S. Jayanta, Sound-Hitendra Ghosh, Art Direction – Madhukar Shinde.

The struggle of an old father coming into terms with the greatest loss of his life – the murdering of his only son in New York, his wife’s attempts at finding solace in the rituals and Pundits, standing up for a young woman whom they had taken as Paying Guest (against a local politician and his goons), contemplating suicide together earlier – the events unfold like a ‘tragic poem’ on the celluloid, but without losing hope for the final ‘ALL is WELL’.

Sanjeev Kumar, the thespian (with Sholay, Mausam, Zindagi, and Arjun Pandit, Trishul behind him) was the choice (in spite of Kher having been finalized by Mr. Bhatt) for the role by the Producers. But, Kher’s brilliant performance won him the ‘Filmfare Award’ for the Best Actor. Bhatt and Shinde also won for Story and Art Direction respectively.

The honor at the National Awards went to Naseeruddin Shah that year for ‘PAAR’. But Vasant Dev won the Best Lyricist award for ‘Saaraansh’.

This movie was India’s official entry for the Academy Award for the ‘Best Foreign Language Film’. It was included in the Panorama section of the 1984-IFFI. At the 14th Moscow International Film Festival, it was nominated for the ‘Golden Prize’ and Bhatt was given a ‘special prize’.

(At the ‘Filmfare Awards’, the other nominations for the film were for Best Film, Director, Actress and supporting actress- almost all the major categories).

So far for Mahesh Bhatt his movies ‘Arth’, ‘Naam’, ‘Janam’, ‘Aashiqui’, ‘Sadak’, ‘Dil Hai Ke Maantaa Nahin’, ‘Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke’, ‘Sir’, ‘Daddy’, ‘Zakhm’ etc have won him critical acclaim and many were commercially successful too. But to me ‘Saaransh’ is his most sensitive work same like Anupam Kher’s sensitive performance in this movie among his other movies.

Today’s song is a beautifully created and equally well picturised one. Kher, Hattangadi, Bhalekar and Alok Nath are the known faces here. Sung hauntingly by Bhupinder Singh, the lyrics are by Vasant Dev and music by Ajit Verman.

As mentioned earlier, Vasant Dev was given the ‘best lyricist award’ at the 32nd National Film Festivals.

Today is Bhupinder Singh’s birth anniversary (born on 6th February’1940). Surprisingly his voice features in two other favorite movies I have listed above.

This part was conceived on the 18th July’2022 the day Bhupinder Singh left for his heavenly journey and was informed to Avinash ji.

Lyrics noted are as per the audio of this song which is a longer version than the video, and provided by Avinash Scrapwala.

I am grateful to dear Avinash Scrapwala ji for his technical help. I feel lost with these things. He reminded me often, waited patiently and helped to make this post happen. (As mentioned above it was conceived on the day Bhupinder Singh left for his heavenly journey i.e. 18th July’2022, a gestation period of nearly nine months!!!)

Thanks also to all our ASAD friends who constantly goaded me to make a start.

Let us pay our tributes to Bhupinder Singh with this song.

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

A fortnight back, our ‘Sampaadak-Shri’ Shri Atul ji (if you are in Gujarat you will find this reference very common 🙂 ) posted a song for the ‘full moon occurrence’ which was on 06th January’2023. The song though appeared three days later on 09.01.2023. This song was ‘raat chaandni samay suhaana hai’ from the ‘1960’ movie ‘Basant’.

Today we have the ‘darkest night’ i.e. ‘amaavsya’ and I have a song for this occasion too :). I am presenting a song ‘celebrating the kaali raat’. That reminds me these lines ‘ab kisko kyaa milaa ye muqaddar ki baat hai’ from the song ‘ek chaand aasmaan pe hai’… 🙂

Let us come back to tonight’s post …

This song is a song that I got to listen to on radio in recent months. It sounded familiar, though I was not able to put a finger to it. Moreover I felt that the song may aready be there on the blog. But it was not. So the next step was to find out the details of the song, viz know the name of its movie. It turned out to be ‘Agent 009’. Many sources mentioned it as a movie of the year ‘1980’. However this movie is from the year ‘1981’.

Not just that, it turns out that this movie was again released in ‘1983’ with the title ‘Desh Shatru’, replacing the names of the producer-director-story writer of the earlier title ‘Agent 009’.

The movie “Agent 009” was directed by Chaand for ‘S.V.S. Films, Bombay’. And, the revised version ‘Desh Shatru-1983’ had Vijendra Mittal as director.

The star cast of this movie includes Rehana Sultana, Vijendra Mittal, Madhushala, Zareen, Padma Khanna, Bharat Kapoor, Gautam Bhatia, Manhar Desai, Maruti, Jagdish Raj, Mushtaq Merchant, G. Jilani, Vikas Anand, Nalini Singh, Shesh Chand, Suresh Garg, Vinod Kumar, Ramesh Goyal, S.P. Dubey, Manik, Ramkumar, Thapa, Khalil Khan, Sonam Randhawa, Amit Kumar, Ramesh Jindal, Thakurdas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1981, and with the new title ‘Desh Shatru’ it was passed by Censor Board on 12.04.1983.

According to HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) the revised version mentioned the name of the producer-director-writer of the movie as Vijendra Mittal.

Vijendra Mittal was also the lead actor of this re relaesed movie.

“Agent 009-1981/ Desh Shatru-1983” has four songs penned by four different lyricist viz. Verma Malik, Vishweshwar Sharma, Nandi Khanna and Pankaj Gyani.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

Sr.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 He aag lagaa di paani mein Verma Malik Kishore Kumar
02 Maharaja.., heera hoon kohinoor hoon main Nandi Khanna Dilraj Kaur
03 Sun mere Sai baba, Vishweshwar Sharma Chandrani Mukherjee
04 Teri umr ka saal badhha, ye raat matwaali hai … Pankaj Gyani Asha Bhonsle

Today I am presenting a song sung by Asha Bhonsle and composed by Sonik-Omi from this movie.
This song is a nice song to listen to. It seems to be a ‘party’ song , perhaps celebration a birthday as it mentions ‘teri umr ka saal badhha…’…

It is a celebration song, but it also contains words of caution…

Lekin…
Lekin …
Lekin kaali hai
(ye raat 🙂 )

… this song must be having some ‘mystery’ surrounding it 🙂 which we are not privy to.

Readers who have watched either of the movies ‘Agent 009/Desh Shatru’ may be able to tell us more …

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

Let us enjoy this song sung by Asha Bhonsle and written by Pankaj Gyani.

Music (in ‘Pancham’ style) is by Sonik-Omi.

Only the audio of this song is available.

This movie ‘Agent 009-1981/Desh Shatru-1983’ makes their debut on the blog with this song. Also, I think that the lyricist Pankaj Gyani makes a debut as a lyricist on the blog. In the list of lyricist on the statistics page on the blog we have a name Pankaj only but not Pankaj Gyani.

(Note – HFGK mentions both the movies separately as per their year of release and with above information mentioned).

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————
(Birth Anniversary – Maya Govind – A tribute)

Today 17th January’2023 is the eighty-third birth anniversary of poet lyricist Maya Govind.
She was born on 17th January’1940 and she passed away last year on 06th April’2022 at the age of eighty-two.

I had in my earlier post last year mentioned about her in detail. This post had come in the month of February’2022 last year. Two months later, we had the news of her sad demise.

Today as we pay our tributes to her. I am reproducing the same text here which is about her biographical details and journey into films.

Maya Govind is said to have challenged the male dominance in the lyrics writing in movies and had established a distinguished place for her in lyrics writing in Hindi movies.

Maya Govind was born on 17th January’1940 in Lucknow. Her father (Harnath Vahal) was a cloth merchant in Lucknow. Maya Govind and her two younger sisters were the three siblings When Maya Govind was still a child her father lost his eyesight. His wife – Maya Govind’s mother – was a housewife, and all his children were small kids. So, all his shops and slowly his house too was taken over by his relatives. That forced her mother to take shelter in a rented house.

When Maya Govind was only five years old, she lost her father which left the family in bad economic condition. In this situation her maternal uncle helped them to survive and to get education to the children. Maya Govind was the eldest among the three sisters. She completed her B.A. and B’ Ed.

Maya Govind got married while she was in her first year of B’ Ed. However, her marriage didn’t last long, and she returned to her mother within three months of her marriage. She continued doing B’ Ed and joined a four-year course in ‘Bhatkhande Sangeet Vidyalaya’. She also learned ‘Kathhak’ from Shambhu Maharaj. She did plays for Radio in Lucknow. Later she started teaching at Bal Vidya Mandir Lucknow. During this she keep doing acting in plays and joined the famous stage artist Kunwar Kalyan Singh.

She had been writing poetry since she was eleven years old. Once when Bharat Bhushan and his brother producer Ramesh Chandra (better known as R. Chandra) spotted her during their visit to her school and impressed by her poetry R. Chandra asked her to visit Bombay. That was in 1966.
R. Chandra offered her three movies to write lyrics for (these were ‘Mushaira’, ‘Megh Malhar’, and ‘Baap Bete’). She wrote eleven songs for ‘Mushaira’ and returned to Lucknow. Suddenly R. Chandra died in between, and only two songs were recorded then under the baton of Music Director Khayyam. (Later R. Chandra’s son Rakesh Chandra included these two songs in the movie ‘Muthhi Bhar Chawal’ in ‘1975’.)

In 1965-66 Govind Arora (alias Ram Govind)- a famous writer and stage personality – came to Lucknow from Samastipur, Bihar to look artistes for his plays. Maya Govind was offered the lead role. During this association they become close friends and got married in 1967. Ram Govind too got settled in Lucknow. Both founded the ‘Darpan Naatya Sanstha’ in Lucknow.

In 1972 Maya Govind came to Bombay to participate in a ‘Kavi Sammelan’ where one among the audience was the famous producer director Ramanand Sagar. Impressed by her poetry he signed Maya Govind for lyrics writing for his movie ‘Jalte Badan’ which was released in 1973. In this movie she wrote all the lyrics for all the four songs in the movie. Around the same time, she came into contact with Guru Dutt’s brother Atmaram who was making the movie ‘Aarop-1974’ then. He offered her lyrics writing for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by the legendary Bhupen Hazarika. The song ‘nainon mein darpan hai’ got popular from this movie.

During this time famous producer Tarachand Badjatya recorded three poems of Maya Govind for a private album. Tarachand Badjatya also offered her to perform in his movie titled ‘Kavi Sammelan-1972’.
In 1988 Maya Govind set up her own production house- ‘Bahar Productions’ which produced ‘Tohfa Mohabbat ka’ which was not a commercial success and later she launched movie ‘Taandav’ which was shelved after shooting of 13 reels due to financial problems. Her recent movie as lyricist was ‘Baazar-E-Husn’ under Khayyam Saab.

Today as a tribute to Maya Govind we are going to listen to a beautiful song written by her from the movie ‘Baawri-1982’.

“Baawri-1982” was directed by A.C. Trilokchander for ‘G.G.K. Enterprises’. It was produced by G. Gopalkrishnan.

‘Baawri’ had the star cast of Raeksh Roshan, Jayaprada (in title role), Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Nirupa Roy, Asrani, Seema Deo, Kamal Deep, Sunil Dhawan, P. Joshi, A. Shakuntala, Yogeeta Bali and others.

This movie introduced Vikrant Dutt.

‘Baawri’ has six songs written by Maya Govind and they were composed by Khayyam Saab.

Maya Govind and Khayyam had collaborated in the following films.

1. Mutthi Bhar Chawal(1975) 02 songs
2. Baawri(1982 ) 06 songs
3. Razia Sultan(1983 ) 01 song
4. Banaras-1918 A Love Story(2006) 01 song
5. Yaatra-The Journey(2006) 01 song

Not many songs. I wish they could have collaborated more so that we would have got many memorable songs to cherish.

Today’s song from ‘Baawri-1982’ is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Yesudas. It is a very nice song with equally beautiful poetry, singing and composition. I like this song very much.

Lyrics for this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Earlier one song from this movie has been posted on the blog long back in 2012. This song also is another wonderful divine composition by Khayyam Saab with pure verses by Maya Govind.

Let us listen to today’s song and pay our tributes to Maya Govind. This song is performed on screen by Rakesh Roshan and Jayaprada having some illuminating locations and illuminating performance (?) 🙂

Today’s song is the Title song from the film Chameli ki shaadi-1986.

This is one of my favourite films, amongst the hundreds of films that I have seen since the 1940’s decade. As such I love seeing genuine comedy films. Every Hindi film has atleast one or two comedy scenes. In earlier films, there used to be a specialist actor – the Comedian. Nowadays, especially from the Amitabh times, the film’s Hero does the comedy scenes, stunt scenes and emotional scenes himself, thus eliminating the comedy specialists totally. After Asrani, paintal and others of their ilk, I don’t think any major comedy specialist rose in Hindi films.

The first comedy film, after the Talkie films started, was made almost immediately. It was made by Ranjit Movietone and the film was “Bhutia Mahal”-1932. We do not know about its plot or any other information , other than what is given in the HFGK. Subsequently many comedy films came. The first ever comedy film which I remember having seen was ” Ek thi Ladki ”-1949. I really enjoyed that film. Later on I have seen it several times. Being fond of comedy films, I never missed them. In the 50’s there were several films like Bhagam Bhag, New Delhi, Hum sab chor hain etc etc. During the VCR times, I saw many comedy films-some new some repeat times. Though I had stopped visiting Cinema halls since the 80’s, most newer comedy films were watched either on VCR or the TV. Film Chameli ki shaadi-1986 is one of the Top Ten comedy films I ever saw.

Anil kapoor is not my favourite actor, nor is Amrita Singh. The director Basu Chatterjee, of course, was my favourite. One of the other actors of this film-Amjad khan’s image was etched as Gabbar Singh in my mind. However, in this film he proved his versatility in doing a comic role too. Annu kapoor, pankaj Kapoor and Bharati Achrekar are known experts and they too chipped in their comedy parts.

Anil Kapoor actually started his career with acting in different languages. His first film was Hamare Tumhare-1979, his other film was a Telugu film-‘ Vansh vriksham’-1980 and a Kannada film ‘ Pallavi Anupallavi’-1983. His career took a positive turn with the film ‘ Mashal ‘-1984. I have seen his films, Mr. India-87, Tezab-88, Ram lakhan-89, Bibi No.1-99 and Nayak-2000. Not many actually, considering his large number of films in Hindi.

As far as Amrita Singh is considered, honestly, I always considered her with masculine features and her marriage with 12 years younger Saif Ali khan and her conversion was keeping her low in my eyes. I have seen only one of her films and that was Chameli ki Shaadi-1986. She has done a superb job in it. Hats off to Basu Chatterjee, who used all her typical girlish characteristics. Here is the film’s story….

Charandas is a fledgling wrestler who lives with brother Bhajandas. According to Bhajandas, Charandas should marry and start a family of his own. But Charan is hell bent on becoming a wrestler and is even ready to remain a bachelor until 40 as per the norms of Mastram. However, one day, Charan’s thoughts are challenged when he sees Chameli at Kallumal’s coal depot. He realizes that to marry her, he may have to leave Mastram’s Akhara.

Charan does so and seeks help from Advocate Harish, a close friend of his brother. Harish appreciates Charan’s love and is ready to help him. Charan dares to confess his love to Chameli. On other hand, Anita, Chameli’s best friend is also convinced of Chameli’s true love. The lover duo start meeting secretly. One day, however, the love affair is exposed when a relative of Chameli spots the duo in a restaurant.

The respective families soon take up cudgels against their wards and make it clear that they won’t allow inter-caste marriage. Chameli is kept under house arrest and her parents decide to have her marry one of their acquaintances. Charan learns of this development. Mastram is surprisingly supportive of Charan’s love. He explains that just as bachelorhood is a challenge for would-be wrestlers, a lover should not back out from the challenge posed by the world.

Mastram, along with Charan’s friends, backs the lovers to overcome the obstacles. Here, Champa calls in the help of her rogue brother Chhadam Lal aka Chhadmi against Charan. With the help of Harish and all his friends, Charan chalks out a plan to rescue Chameli from her house. As per the plan, Charan abducts Chameli from her own house, while Harish sees to it that the duo legally get married. Charan and Chameli are initially frightened, but Harish convinces them by telling them that as long as people do not dare to marry outside the caste like them, Indians will never be truly united.

Meanwhile, on learning that Chameli is missing, her parents lodge a complaint against Charan. They proceed to the place where Charan and Chameli are going to get married. Meanwhile, Bhajandas also comes with his men to disrupt the marriage. Both the parties have arrived late, as Charandas and Chameli are legally husband and wife now. They vent their ire on Harish, who according to them is responsible for corrupting the duo. Harish takes Kallumal aside and explains that if the marriage is permitted by him, he will garner votes of both the castes in the election because his son in law is the leader of all the young people and also has support from the akhadas.

Convinced by the argument of Harish, Kallumal relents because of being enticed by the illusion of winning the local election. Similarly, Harish tells Bhajandas that an influential Kallumal is sure to win the elections. If Bhajandas accepts the marriage, he will get special perks for his coal business thanks to Kallumal. Besides, he will get coal and cement at a subsidized rate from Kallumal. Bhajandas becomes greedy and relents. In the end, Chameli and Charandas are united with the blessing from both the parties.

I sometimes see the comedy scene videos of this film on YouTube and get myself cheered up. My most favourite scene is when Anil, Amrita and Komal toton a big Hotel for a date. I have seen this video so many times, that I have learnt that YouTube has decided to ban me from seeing it anymore ! Now that the name of Komal has come up here, how many of us know anything about this lovely looking dance expert who was also known as ” Rupini ” ? Here is some information about her which will surprise the readers, I am sure.

Komal Mahuvakar was born in Mumbai in a well educated family. Her father was a Lawyer and mother a famous Dietician, attached to big Hospitals like Leelavati, Breach Candy and Jaslok. While schooling, she learnt classical dancing. She was accidentally spotted by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and he met her parents. He offered Child roles to her in films like Mili-1975, Kotwal Saab-1977 and Khoobsurat-1980. She also worked in films like Des pardes-78 and Saanch ko aanch nahin-1979. She did her first film as a Heroine -Payal ki Jhankaar-1980.

After this she took a new name “RUPINI ” and went Southwards. We know many south indian actresses like Rekha, Hema Malini, Padmini, Shri Devi etc, who made a name in Hindi films. But we do not know much about Bombay girls going south and making a name for themselves. Komal Mahuvakar aka ‘ Rupini’ worked in 35 Tamil films, 10 Kannada films, 5 Malayalam films and 2 Telugu films. She also worked in 19 Hindi films upto 1989. Rest of the time, she was busy working in the South.

She left films in 1996. She married Mr. Raina, a successful Businessman, having a big Bungalow in Chembur, Mumbai. They have 1 daughter – Anisha. Komal and her husband have opened a big Heart Hospital in Chembur. She also started Dance classes for aspirants. presently she is leading an active life in Mumbai.

In the beginning of Talkie films, most heroes had to sing their songs themselves and it was a troublesome job for the Music Directors to make the non-singer hero sing a song as per their tune. There were some stars who knew or had the singing skill, like actor Surendra (152 songs in 40 films), with whom it was no problem. When the playback system came into full swing in the early 1940’s, the Music Directors heaved a sigh of relief. Actually, Naushad is on record having said ” it was tedious hard work to get the non-singer actors to sing a song. Playback has freed us from this torture !” Thereafter everything seemed to be in order. Actors acted and singers gave them playback.

Then at the end of the 40’s Raj kapoor sang 3 songs for himself in 3 films. He was of course a trained singer, but it started a different trend. His brother Shammi kapoor sang 1 song in his film-Jeewan Jyoti-1953. His younger brother Shashi kapoor sang 2 songs in 2 of his films. Both were non singers. The next generation saw many more actors singing their own songs. This was the time when Actors ruled the industry. The MDs or producers had no guts to say No to them.

Akshay Kumar sang 6 songs in 6 films.
Shatrughna Sinha sang 9 songs in 9 films.
Amir Khan sang 13 songs in 10 films.
Shahrukh khan sang 10 songs in 10 films.

Above all, can you imagine, the Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has sung 64 songs in 44 films !!! (all stats from muVyz).

None of these actors were trained singers. No wonder Anil kapoor also wanted to sing in his own films. He has sung 4 songs in 4 films. His first song was in Chameli ki Shaadi-1986. The others were from Andaz-94, Hamara dil aapke paas hai-2000 and tashan-2008. I read somewhere that Anil approached the MD Kalyanji-Anand ji and requested them for a song in this film.When they agreed, he cautioned them that it was his first time and that they should make it very simple to sing. As a way out, a Title song was created. He did quite a good job of it with hard work during rehearsals and the song was passed in the first take of recording itself !

Today’s song has a lilting, simple but haunting tune. Anil Kapoor sang it nicely. Enjoy his Debut song…

#the Decade of Seventies – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————
(Birth Anniversary – Rajkamal – A tribute)

Today 15th January’2023 is the ninety-fifth birth anniversary of Music Composer Rajkamal ji (born on 15th January 1928 – passed away on 1st September 2005).

Rajkamal has given timeless musical classics such as ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’, ‘Chashm –E-Buddoor’ to Hindi Film Industry and he also composed the music for B.R. Chopra’s ‘epic serial on TV’ – ‘Mahaabharat’.

He had also sung a few songs in Hindi movies. As a tribute to him on his birth anniversary we will listen to a song sung by him from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’.

“Akhand Saubhaagyawati” was directed by Rakesh Nahta for ‘Dhwani Prakash, Bombay’. He was also the producer of this movie.

It had Reeta Bhaduri, Arvind Kumar, Kalpana Deewan, Chandrakant Pandya, Nalin Dave, Kanchan Mattu, Kamini Bhatiya, Krupadev Yanik, Javed Mishra, Chandrakant Thakkar, Vishnu Kumar Vyas, Master Bittoo and others.

HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in its foot note for this movie that as per Lyricist-Composer Keshav Rathod (Ahmedabad) this movie was originally made in Gujarati language with the title ‘Amar Rahe Taaro Chaandlo’. Its Hindi edition was made as ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’ with re-shooting the whole movie again.
This movie has five songs which were converted to Hindi by Pt. Narendra Sharma from the original songs in Gujarati by Keshav Rathod.

This movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’ was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1981.

As mentioned above this movie has five songs written by Narendra Sharma and composed to music by Rajkamal.

Rajkamal himself, Hemlata, and Sushma Shreshtha had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Rajkamal.

Only the audio of this song is available now. And I guess that the video of this movie and its songs is not available as of now or I could not find them.

Let us now listen to the today’s song which is ‘ojha’ song and talks about the ‘jantar mantar’ by him.

I have not been able to note down correct words at many places and I would request knowledgeable readers to provide the correct words there. And also throw light on this movie and its songs.

With today’s song this movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati-1981’ makes its debut on the blog.

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post which marks the fifth post on the blog today. When I woke up in the morning today and saw the mail notification of the first post on the blog today, I started guessing about where it was heading for ecause I had sent a couple of posts for the day as well to our editors yesterday.

When I was on my morning walk I just thought about the order in which the posts would appear. When I reached home and checked the mails it was done exactly how I had hoped it should be.

There was a post each from the decades of 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, so I just thought why not a one from 1980s to finish the today’s tally of posts. (And that will also give an ‘auspicious’ figure of ‘five’ posts in the day today). 🙂

There already was a reason for a song from the 1980s. I was longing for the few weeks to share a song from this ‘era’ to mark a ‘special occasion’ with a song from a ‘special movie’. The matter was already in the mind and all I had to do was to put it in black and white. So I noted the song which I had in mind planned. Before going for the preparation of the detailed post I thought about browsing the blog and jtally the figures once.

Here, there was a ‘twist’ in store and what I noticed was that the blog was not ready for the special occasion as of now and some tweaking was called for. So in the meanwhile, I have picked another song.

Regulars on the blog must be aware that the ‘year’ ‘1983’ was an ‘important’ year for me as I passed out my 10th standard exams that year and then there are many other things from this year including ‘movies’ and ‘nostalgia’ and overall above the ‘Prudential Cricket World Cup’ win of India.

We will directly come to the movies now. So in the year 1983 the total number of ‘Hindi’ movies released is ‘130’. Out of these ‘130’ movies ‘46’ movies have already been represented on the blog. (The detailed excel sheet is being hold for the ‘special post’ later.)

The ‘annual hits of Binaca Geetmala’ included the songs from today’s movie whereas the songs of that movie which I was supposed to present ‘had not found a place’ in that list may be because of ‘recordon ki bikri, aur shrotaa sanghon ki raay’ …

Nevertheless, I like songs of today’s movie just as well. I was longing to share this song which is being presented today, though this particular song of this movie was not there in the ‘annual hit list’. (Our dear Prakash ji had also sent couple of other songs from this movie earlier).

Here is the movie …

“Ek Jaan Hain Hum-1983” was directed by Rajeev Mehra for ‘Eagle Films’.

It had Shammi Kapoor, Rajeev Kapoor, Divya Rana, Pran, Tanuja, Kiran Vairale Rakesh Bedi, Monty, Gulshan Grover and others.

This movie has six songs written by Anjaan and music for this movie was composed by Anu Malik.

People like me who watched this movie expected Rajeev Kapoor to be the new generations Shammi Kapoor, and I think Rajeev Kapoor also tried to do that. But it did not happen somehow.

While watching the movie and listening the songs of this movie I feel that the ‘crew’ of this movie also tried to do ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ type music and songs.

I leave it to readers for their comments as well.

Today’s song is sung by Shabbir Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is Rajeev Kapoor and Divya Rana.

Lyrics are by Anjaan and music is composed by Anu Malik.

With today’s song this movie ‘Ek Jaan Hain Hum-1983’ makes its debut on the blog today…

Enjoy 🙂

Today’s song is from the ‘1988’ movie ‘Waaris’.

Through this song we pay our tributes to Lyricist Qamar Jalalabadi whose twentieth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ falls today on 9th January 2023. He was born on 9th March’1917 and he passed away on 9th January’2003.

Here is the list of songs in this movie which I have taken from the ‘vinyl LP cover’ of this movie.

One song from this movie – mere pyaar ki umar ho itni sanam – has been posted on the blog on 23.06.2021.

Today we listen to another good song from this movie which is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and composed by Uttam Singh-Jagdish Khanna.
As mentioned above lyrics are by Qamar Jalalabadi.

If my memory serves me right then this song plays in the background in the movie and appears in parts in the movie. I vaguely remember that I had watched this movie on TV..

I hope readers will enjoy this song which I like very much.

Let us now listen to today’s song …
