Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) -3 (1983)
——————————————————————

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1983.

If we talk actor wise the year ‘1983’ belonged to Rajesh Khanna. He delivered hits like Avtaar, Sautan, and Agar Tum Naa Hote. That readily brings to our mind his favourite music director and lyricist viz. Rahul Dev Burman and Anand Bakshi respectively.

In the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year the song that was a ‘topper’ was a song from Rajesh Khanna movie, but it was composed by Usha Khanna and not Rahul Dev Burman. The song was ‘shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal’. On the 2nd and 3rd spot of this list, were the songs of ‘Nikaah’ composed by Ravi.

There was only one Rajesh Khanna movie that year where Pancham had composed the music. This movie was ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’. Its popular title song ranked twenty-third in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’.

The other Rajesh Khanna movie that found representation in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ was ‘Avtaar’ (its song ‘zindagi mauj udaane ka naam hai’ was at 25th position). (I have not included ‘Disco Dancer-1982 where Kaka had special appearance).

Following movies which were released in 1983 had their music composed by R.D. Burman.

19 Shubh Kaamnaa K. Vishwanath Anjaan 23.07.1983 1 of 5 songs posted

From the above list one song each of ‘Betaab’, ‘Lovers’ and ‘Pukaar’ appeared at spot no.4, 16 and 31 respectively in the annual list of ‘Geetmala – 1983’.

In addition to this one song each from the movies ‘Maasoom’ and ‘Shakti’ ranked at number 11 and 22 respectively. But these were the movies released in 1982.

Two songs – one each from ‘Betaab’ and ‘Maasoom’ appeared in the shadow list of that year’s annual list of Binaca Geetmala.

For today’s presentation I have chosen a song from ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon-1983’. Two movies from the year 1983, where Pancham composed music, have not debuted on the blog out of nineteen movies. One is ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon’ and other is ‘Bindiyaa Chamkegi’.

I am not aware of the songs from ‘Bindiyaa Chamkegi’ and songs of ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon’. But except the one song that is the today’s song from ‘Main Aawaaraa Hoon’. I was aware of this song, but I was not aware the name of the movie it was from.

It is nice sentimental-hummable song ‘kisi ki bewafaai ka sabab ban jaaya karti hai’. I remember this song was played frequently on Radio and cassette recorders in Restaurants and Hotels.
(I was staying at Akola (Maharashtra) then for my 11-12th standard studies 😊)

“Main Aawaaraa Hoon-1983” was directed by Aseem Samanta for his father’s productions ‘Shakti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Shakti Samanta. It had Sanjay Dutt, Rati Agnihotri, Jayaprada, Raj Babbar, Shakti Kapoor, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Satyen Kappu, Shubha Khote, Ramesh Deo, Rashmi Chauhan, Raj Bharati, Dinesh Hingoo, Asit Sen, Madhumalini, Tarun Ghosh, Rajendra Nath, Krishnakant, Birbal, Jugnu, Robin Kar, Manorama and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.11.1983.

“Main Aawaaraa Hoon-1983” had five songs, all written by Anand Bakshi. Music was composed by Rahul Dev Burman.

Following is the list of songs this movie had.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 O mera rastaa meri manzil …main aawaaraa hoon Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Jaane ya na jaane koyi …bolo ji kaisi kahi Kishore Kumar, Alka Yagnik
03 Suna hai tumhe hamse koi shikaayat hai … Asha Bhonsle
04 Kisi ki bewafaai ka sabab ban jaaya karti hai Kishore Kumar
05 Pyaar kise kehte hain ae ae … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle

Let us now listen to today’s song which on screen is lip-synced by Sanjay Dutt in the voice of Kishore Kumar who has sung this song with his special touch. The song grows up on us if we listen to it more than once…

Other than Sanjay Dutt we can see Raj Babbar, Rati Agnihotri, Shubha Khote, Rajendra Nath, Iftekhar, Asit Sen and others in the picturisation of this song.

Song-Kisi ki bewafaai ka sabab ban jaaya karti hai(Main Aawaara Hoon)(1983) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics(Based on Audio link)

kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai
mohobbat hi judaai ka
mohobbat hi judaai ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

puraane log chehre par
nayaa chehraa lagaaye
puraane log chehre par
nayaa chehraa lagaaye
miley gairon se hanske
apnon se milte hain aaye
hayaa bhi behayaai ka
hayaa bhi behayaai ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

bachaaya hai hamaari muflisi ne
ham fakeeron ko
bachaaya hai hamaari muflisi ne
ham fakeeron ko
bahot nazdeek se dekha hai hamne
kuchh ameeron ko
ye daulat har buraayi ka
ye daulat har buraayi ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

bane na baat jab koi
to koyi kuchh kahe kaise
bane na baat jab koi
to koyi kuchh kahe kaise
jo kuchh kehna zaroori ho to
insaan chup rahe kaise
ye chup dil ki duhaayi ka
ye chup dil ki duhaayi ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai
mohobbat hi judaai ka
mohobbat hi judaai ka
sabab ban jaya karti hai
kisi ki bewafaai ka
sabab ban jaaya karti hai

किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

पुराने लोग चेहरे पर
नया चेहरा लगाए
पुराने लोग चेहरे पर
नया चेहरा लगाए
मिले गैरों से हंसके
अपनों से मिलते हैं आये
हया भी बेहयाई का
हया भी बेहयाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

बचाया है हमारी मुफलिसी ने
हम फकीरों को
बचाया है हमारी मुफलिसी ने
हम फकीरों को
बहोत नजदीक से देखा है हमने
कुछ अमीरों को
ये दौलत हर बुराई का
ये दौलत हर बुराई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

बने ना बात जब कोई
तो कोई कुछ कहे जैसे
बने ना बात जब कोई
तो कोई कुछ कहे जैसे
जो कुछ कहना ज़रूरी हो तो
इंसान चुप रहे कैसे
ये चुप दिल की दुहाई का
ये चुप दिल की दुहाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
मोहोब्बत ही जुदाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है
किसी की बेवफाई का
सबब बन जाया करती है

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is one that I have been wanting to present on the blog for years. I have kept looking for its link on YouTube and finally found that someone has uploaded it in May 2019. Then I looked for the movie’s songs on our blog and found one song was posted with lyrics contributed by Avinashji.

In the comments to that song Prakshchandraji has written this about the movie:-

“Shubh Kaamna is a remake of famous Telugu hit movie “Shubh Lekha(1982) (directed by the same famous director K.Vishwanath) starring famous Telugu Hero (now turned into politician) Chiranjeevi and Sumalata. The film dealt with the Dowry system and Utpal Dutt`s acting in Shubh kaamna is very good. And the music of Pancham is also very good. Kiran Vairale acted very well. But I think, somehow the southern flavour of the movie was not accepted by northern audience. But I enjoyed the movie very much.”

Prakashji had also mentioned that the videos related to the movie are not easily available.

The movie had a cast of Rati Agnihotri, Kiran Vairale, Ashalata, Rakesh Roshan, Vinod Mehra (think it was a special appearance), Sujit Kumar, Utpal Dutt, Asrani, Omprakash, Satyen Kappu, and South actor Sudhakar played Utpal Dutt’s younger son and Kiran Vairale’s love interest. The songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. I had seen this movie with family at the time of its theatrical release; and loved the concept of the movie. There was something to do with Allwyn watch company in the movie and some portion of the movie was shot in the factory, if my memory is correct. Also the beaches of Andhra Pradesh served as location for much of the movie.

Today’s song is a stage song which has Rakesh Roshan singing at a cultural program at the college where Rati Agnihotri is a lecturer and Kiran Vairale (her sister) is a student. The song is in a few dialects(editor’s- it is in Bangla).

Today happens to be Rakesh Roshan’s birthdate. He started his career at 21 or 22 after the untimely death of his father -the music director Roshan. He began as assistant to director Mohan Kumar in films like ‘Anjaana’. He was recommended by Rajendra Kumar to Soodesh Kumar and he got a supporting role in ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ All through his acting career he has acted in many heroine-centric movies like ‘Paraya Dhan’, ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘Aankhon Aankhon Mein’, ‘Bahurani’, ‘Humari Bahu Alka’ etc. He played a few grey characters too as in ‘Jhootha Kahin Ka’, ‘Dil Aur Deewar’, ‘Daasi’, ‘Aakhir Kyon?’ etc. When he started his own production house his first movie was ‘Aap Ke Deewane’ which starred Tina Munim opposite two heroes- Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan. His next was ‘Kaamchor’ which had Jaya Prada as the central character. this was followed by ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ and ‘Bhagwan Dada’ both of which had Sridevi in important roles. He turned a full-fledged filmmaker i.e. a producer director with ‘Khoon Bhari Maang’ which was on Rekha’s character. ‘Bahurani’ (1989) and ‘Aurat Aurat Aurat’ (1996) where the last movies where he had a substantial part to play. He has since been seen in guest appearances in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, ‘Krrish’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’. He has been in the enterainment industry for 50 years now.

Here is wishing Rakesh Roshan lots of health and happiness as he turns 72.

Hullo Atuldom

18th July 2012- nine years to the date since the first superstar of Bollywood passed away. An actor who charmed his way into the hearts of his (female) fans with a smile that reached his eyes and could express his emotions with his eyes.

The style with which he said “Pushpa, I hate tears”. Or the the way he said “why are you roing?” to his girlfriend (Farida Jalal) who has come to wish him ‘all the best’ as he is leaving for the war.

Can anyone forget “Zindagi aur maut toh uparwale ke haath mein hain jahaanpanaah……” There are numerous such dialogues and sequences that are etched in the collective minds of his fans. But all these superlative scenes and dialogues came in the first few years of his stardom when he gave 15 consecutive hits.

What happened next? A tall lanky man walked in and went on to become the next superstar. But did he actually dislodge our Kaka from his pedestal? Not exactly. Kaka still kept coming up with movies were he was the solo hero, which were decently successful at the Box-Office too. In 1984-85 he had 11 releases of which 8 were hits in spite of the Amitabh mania being at its peak. In fact none of the superstars (past and/or present) Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan or Shahrukh Khan or all those who followed, can say that they have similar crazy fans. There are anecdotes about how female fans threw themselves at his car, how many of them were heart-broken when he got married etc.

I have read Amitabh Bachchan’s blog (that is the only other film-based blog, besides ASAD that I read/follow on such occasions) where he has said “The word ‘Superstar’ was invented for him, and for me it shall ever remain his, and no others .. !! His generation and the generations that follow, shall never be able to describe, or understand his phenomena .. !!”. What more can say about Kaka a.k.a Rajesh Khanna.

He was the highest paid actor for the longest time and he made an eye-pleasing pair with all his heroines of the time. Be it Hema Malini, Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi, Waheeda Rehman, Zeenat, Parveen babi etc. etc. etc. and Sridevi, Jaya Prada, Padmini Kolhapure, Tina Munim etc. from the next set. R D Burman, Kishore Kumar and Rajesh Khanna were a successful team and had worked together in 32 films. He had a keen sense of music and the songs of his movies right from ‘aur kuch der thahar aur kuch der na jaa’ to ‘Jai Jai Shiv Shankar’ to any songs, which any reader wants to add in this list, are well loved and still popular .

Selecting a song for this post was not easy as there are so many songs to choose from. I have tried to find a song which is not by R D Burman and the first song that I thought of is a personal favourite which, I am surprised, is not yet on the blog. In fact, Sudhirji had pointed out the absence of this song on the blog a long time back.

The song is written by Sawan Kumar Tak and composed by Usha Khanna. The song had two versions one by Lata Mangeshkar which was sung on screen by Padmini Kolhapure and the other by Kishore Kumar which was lip synced by (but of course) Rajesh Khanna. Both the versions cannot be classified as happy or sad but the song is very philosophical. Yes, I am talking of “Zindagi pyar ka geet hai” from ‘Soutan’ (1983). I don’t want to get into any discussion about which version is better and has stood the test of time. We shall straight away get to the song.

Here is that ever-so-popular song where we have both actors at their emotional best.

Male version

Female version

Lata Mangeshkar worked with 11 music directors and 18 lyricists in these 33 movies released in 1983. Laxmikant Pyarelal continued to be the most prolific music directors with Lata, with 590 songs in HFM with Lata Mangeshkar by the end of 1983. Shankar Jaikishan with 456 songs in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar were in the second position. Kalyanji Anandji were third with 301 songs. R D Burman with 275 songs overtook C Ramchandra with 274 songs. Other top music directors for Lata Mangeshkar were Chitragupta (239), Madan Mohan (195), S D Burman (179), Roshan (144), Naushad (140), Hemant Kumar (127), Anil Biswas (120), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), Salil Chaudhary (108) and Vasant Desai (104). Together these fifteen music directors composed 3360 songs out of 4655 songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung in Hindi movies till end of 1983. Anand Bakshi with 587 songs was the top lyricist with Lata Mangeshkar. Other leading lyricists with Lata Mangeshkar were Rajinder Krishan (554), Majrooh Sultanpuri (399), Shailendra (361), Hasrat Jaipuri (297), Prem Dhawan (201), Bharat Vyas (193), Shakeel Badayuni (189), Sahir Ludhianvi (161) and Indeewar (118). These ten lyricists had penned 3060 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar till that time.

Lata Mangeshkar collaborated with music directors Chaand Pardesi and Uttam Jagdish for the first time in movies of this year. She also worked with Lyricists Pradeep Kaushik, Sawan Kumar Tak, Sameer, Rana Sahri and Qateel Shifaifor the first time in movies released this year.

Here I have assumed that Chaand Pardesi was different from music director Pardesi with whom Lata mangeshkar had worked in the past. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1983 :

Music of Uttam Singh – 01

#Nostalgia – Summer – 1983 (2) #

When I talk about the summer nostalgia-1983 I cannot forget the today’s movie. And that is why this separate write-up. Because the movie was a special movie for people like me who were interested in Manoj Kumar and his movies. And since his brother was making a debut with three others also making a debut, we (me and my friends) were excited about this movie.

Promotion of this movie on radio had already started earlier when we were already preparing for our board exams (of class Xth). Me and my friends used to discuss about its songs as some were nice songs and already heard frequently during promotion of this movie. Few songs from this movie were also becoming our favorites and we were also eager to watch the debutant actor and actresses of this movie.

The movie is ‘Painter Babu from 1983. The music of this movie is composed by music duo Uttam Singh- Jagdish Khanna. This was their first movie as music director duo. And this was also the first introduction of these names to me.

Well, we get to watch this movie in the vacations after our board examinations were over. After watching and liking this movie we become curious to know more about the music composers of this movie viz. Uttam Singh and Jagdish Khanna. However, after the Board exams it was ‘World Cup-1983’, and around the same time the results for the exams were declared. After that everything took a back seat and looking for admissions to ‘polytechnic’ or ‘11th -12th, become the priority. And that time there was no internet or blog like ‘atulsongaday’, and I was also not into contributing of lyrics or writing about movies and their songs 😊, So everything was deferred for the future.

‘Painter Babu’ was not as much successful on the box office as it was expected to do. But its beautiful songs were liked and enjoyed by music lovers like me. Some of its songs were already popular like “Kab Talak Shamma Jali Yaad Nahin” which has already been posted on the blog on 11.07.2012, more than eight years ago. Since I loved the songs of this movie, I had shared two of its songs after getting associated with this blog. I had noted two songs of this movie long time back, but they remained to be posted.

Today I am presenting this song on birth anniversary of Music Director Uttam Singh.

Uttam Singh was born on 25th May’1948. Today is his seventy-third birth anniversary. On this occasion we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead. (We will discuss more about him and his filmography in the future posts coming on the blog. Till then we move to the today’s movie again.)

‘Painter Babu’ is directed by Ashok for ‘V.I.P. Films, Bombay’. It is produced by Manoj Kumar who also wrote the story and screenplay for this movie and had also done the editing.

The star cast of the film includes Rajiv Goswami (debutant and in title role), Meenakshi Sheshadri (debutant), Neelima (debutant), and Virendra Sharma (also a debutant).  They were supported by Rakesh Bedi, Madan Puri, Om Shivpuri, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Bandini, Ram Mohan, Kamaldeep, Bharat Kapoor, CS Dubey, Birbal, Lalita Kumari, Meena T, Tun Tun, Sundar Taneja, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Shyam Jeet, Walia, Heera, Bhinda, Leela Mishra, Jankidas, Sudhir, Mohan Choti, Shammi, Dinesh Hingoo, Aruna Irani, Kamini Kaushal and others. Singer Mahendra Kapoor had a special role in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.03.1983.

This movie has seven songs written by three lyricists viz. Manoj Kumar, Qamar Jalalabadi and Qateel Shifai. Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar, and Bhupinder Singh have given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of the songs in this movie is as given below.

S.No. Song Title
01 Ho, ham kuchh bhi rakh le naam uskaa
02 Painter Babu, I love you
03 Kab Talak Shamma Jali Yaad Nahin” (Posted 11-07-2012)
04 O mere sajan barsaat mein aa  (Discussed Today)
05 Yaar kapadaa shaandaar hai
06 Hamkaa le chal yaaraa thhandi thhandi nahar ki kinaare
07 Jab yaad ki badli chhaati hai tab aankh meri bhar aati hai

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. On screen Meenakshi Sheshadri is lip syncing for Lata Mangeshkar’s voice and Mahendra Kapoor is singing for himself as plays a ‘boatman’ here in this song. Rajiv Goswami, the hero of the movie is seen in jail in the picturization of this song and many other artists perform on the boat in this song.

This song may remind some of us the song “Kho Gaya Hai Mera Pyaar” from the film ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ (1962) sung by Mahendra Kapoor. In that song the ‘hero’ is searching for his lost love, while in today’s song the heroine is missing her beloved and singing for him.

I have said above that few songs of this movie are very nice. E.g. the song “Kab Talak Shamma Jali Yaad Nahin” posted earlier on the blog, the songs “Jab Yaad Ki Badli Chhaati Hai”, “Hum Kuchh Bhi Rakh Len Naam Uska’ and the song beibg discussed today’s. But surprisingly none of these songs could make it to the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1983. However two other songs from this movie featured in the list – they are “Humka Layi Chal Yaara Thandi Thandi Nehar Ke Kinaare” (at rank 21) and “Yaar Ladki Shaandar Hai” (ranking at number 26).

Let us now listen to the today’s song and take a trip down memory lane (almost) thirty-eight years back. . .

 O mere sajan barsaat mein aa

And also wish a very happy birthday to Uttam Singh. . .

(Lyrics for this song are written by Manoj Kumar as I have noted from some alternate sources. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) does not mention the lyricist’s name for individual songs separately).

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#6)
————————————————
#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #Year-1983 – The year of ‘Himmatwaalaa’
——————————————————————–

We are back for yet another ‘warmer’ summer. Temperatures are already soaring day by day. e are in the midst of the second summer in the ‘pandemic age’. If we compare it to last year’s summer, this year ‘surge of the pandemic’ is decidedly more serious than what it was in the previous year.

For students also, an unusual summer in terms of classes and exams. And that reminds me of the ‘summers’ in my childhood. We would wait for the exams to get over, which would be conducted in March-April. From May it would be vacations till June 7th (or the first or second Monday of June, hope I am correct) when the schools reopened for the next educational year.

The normal planning for the vacations would be to visit grandparents, playing cricket, reading story books, magazines, comics, cricket-samrat’, ‘listening to music on SLBC, ‘Vividh Bharati’ and ‘listening to BBC Khel Samachar etc. on radio’. Watching movies in the nearby city (Akola) would be one more option. Also common in those days were ‘touring talkies’ which would be camping in the season. After a full day of warm summer, one ould enjoy movies in the evening and night shows in these touring talkies which generally would be in open fields.

That was the planning for ‘summer vacations’ but before that we had to go through exams.

When I talk of ‘summer nostalgia’, I cannot forget the summer of the most important year in my life, and that is the year ‘1983’ (educational year 1982-83) when I was in 10th standard and I appeared for the board exams in Mar-1983 (or may be Mar-April-1983).

A crucial year of studies in one’s life according to the general ‘perception’ in our society (in those years, or it is the same even today?) 😊.
However, we were not having those many comforts we have now. There was no TV, no mobile, no internet, no fridge (at our home).
But there was ‘Radio’ or ‘Transistor’ and there were books and newspapers. Other than cricket it was ‘carrom’ ‘badminton’ and other outdoor games etc.

However, my Uncle staying at Koradi (Nagpur) had purchased a ‘Dynora’ ‘b/w’ TV. And India and Pakistan were having a test series. So, somehow, I convinced my parents to allow me to go for few days and watch the matches on TV and come back.

Imagine, on one side all my friends, classmates were tense, and I had bunked my ‘tuitions’ to watch India-Pakistan matches on TV. My tuition teacher asked my parents to please call me back and when I returned from Nagpur, he humbly requested me ‘aata he cricket vagaire soda, ani abhyasaat laksh ghaala’ (forget the cricket now and concentrate on the studies now) And why not he was not even charging me the tuition fees like my other friends.

So, I concentrated on on studies, but still not giving a serious thought to Teacher and Parent’s instructions I continued to at least play half an hour every day and even on examination days, citing the reason of ‘relieving exam stress’ to my parents.

After examinations it was again ‘cricket’ and ‘movies’ too … And when I talk of summer’1983 I cannot forget the movies I watched during the vacation after appearing for the board exams which was like normal exams for me.

Cassette players had already made entry into our colony and a few people possessed them . So, there were songs and movies. Songs of ‘Nikaah’, ‘Disco Dancer’, ‘Himmatwaala’ etc. could be heard anywhere either on radio or ‘tape recorders.’

As a cricket fan, this summer turned out to be the most memorable and unforgettable as Kapil’s Devils clinched the ‘first world cup title’ for India in June’1983.

Given my age that time I was more interested in cricket, movies, books, and study to pass the exams 😊.

Now, when I check the important happenings in our country in that year – 1983 – google had the following results.

● Waiting telephone connections.
● Silk Smitha.
● Khushwant Singh.
● Kapil Dev brings World Cup to India.
● Nellie Massacre tragedy.
● Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

Challenges were still there, and the next year 1984 was a crucial year as we are all aware we lost our Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The previous years to 1983 i.e., 1981 & 1982 saw floods playing havoc in Rajasthan, and Saurashtra & Orissa, respectively.

All was lost for the peoples residing there, but life had to find its way, so the people of this country do, from time immemorial – facing challenges – fighting them – and winning over them and re-creating more than what has been lost. ‘To fight back with more strength after all is lost’ is in the blood of the people of this land.

Ah! but one cannot bring back the lives that are lost.

Today, again, we are facing challenges and our ‘warriors’ from different fields of the society are fighting with the pandemic and helping people going far out of the way of what they could be.

The stories of highest sacrifices done by individuals and group of peoples never cease to hit the media and life goes on …

Here is a song, that could better explain the ‘challenge’, we as ‘human’ must overcome and save our people, help them, and ‘rebuild’ them.

‘The dignity’ of ‘humanity’ should be upheld and protected.

If 1983 was the year of filmy ‘Himmatwaalaa’ the year ‘2020’ and ‘2021’ have been the years of the ‘real heroes’, who have shown exemplary courage during the ‘lock-down-1’ and first phase of the pandemic, and during the second and worst phase of the pandemic.

Whether they are frontline health workers, doctors, social workers, non-governmental organizations providing food and shelters to many, migrant labors, small entrepreneurs, or start-ups … all of them have suffered a lot themselves. and have still helped many to stand in this hour of calamity.

The ‘pandemic challenge’ is not over yet and still a lot needs to be done by all collectively…

Today’s song is the song which I like most from this movie ‘Himmatwaalaa-1983’ and Bappi Lahiri has given this different composition among the other ‘dance-romance-dream’ songs in this movie. Same thing applies to the lyricist Indeever who penned this song.

In the movie the song happens when nearby villages have been washed off due to flood and nature’s fury (in the movie it is shown taking place in Gujarat).
The hero of the movie Jeetendra calls a meeting of the youths and motivates them to join him in collectively helping those who have lost their all.
However, the elders in the town did not agree with Jeetendra and try to prevent their kin from joining him.

This song takes place here when Jeetendra give the clarion call to all singing this song. As it happens the people (Arun Govil and many others) respond to his call and joined him in this mission.

[Ed Note: Delayed by 3 days on our account, this post was received in email just past midnight on 17th March. It should have posted on 18th. The reference to the dates in the article should be taken from 17th March.]

Hullo Atuldom

18th March 2012 was the first time I sent a contribution to Atulji in the form of lyrics of one of Deewaar’s songs – “Maine Tujhe Maanga Tujhe Paaya Hai“. That happened to be Shashi Kapoor’s 74th birthday. That post also marked 300 songs of Sahir Ludhianvi on the blog. It is nine years since then and we touched 700 songs of Sahir on the blog recently. That was post number 5655 for the blog considering that we had touched 2900 on 3rd September 2010 and those days the blog was chugging along at a great speed.

Ever since 2012 March I have tried, rather inconsistently, to send in a post for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday. My last post for the occasion was in 2019, the song being “Kya Karoon Mujhko Time Nahin“. As I re-read that post I found that the first time I participated on the blog was as a commentor (I was a pillion rider to Peevesie that day when she wrote that comment) for a Shashi Kapoor song.

The first Amitabh song that I wrote a post for was, I think, the friendship song of Suhaag. I am glued to the idiot box whenever there is an Shashi Kapoor-Amitabh Bachchan movie playing and I have been indulged by a certain channel of the DTH provider who played ‘Namak Halal’ (1982) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979) yesterday.

As I am writing this post, that particular channel is showing ‘Chori Mera Kaam’ (1975) of which I have very vague memories of, having seen it in the ’70s. The things that I remember is Deven Verma’s character which was called Praveen Bhai, Zeenat Aman and Shashi trying to outsmart each other and because this was a movie directed by Brij it had interesting roles for Ashok Kumar and Pran. It had great music by Kalyanji Anandji.

He must have been a great co-actor as we have seen him with Shatrughan Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Zeenat Aman, Sharmila Tagore, Parveen Babi and so many others. But we can’t forget his pairing with Nanda in the ’60s with whom he featured in 8 films.

He began his career playing the childhood of Raj Kapoor in ‘Awaara’ (1951) etc. and had his first adult role in Yash Chopra’s ‘Dharmaputra’ (1961) going on to act in almost 116 movies of which 60 were solos and 55 multi-starrers. He was a Padma Bhushan winner and was honored with the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 2014, for his contribution to Hindi Cinema.

He was a filmmaker who made movies that were not in the commercial format and got the likes of Shyam Benegal, Govind Nihalani, Aparna Sen, Girish Karnad to direct it. And he used to say that he acted in the regular masala movie so that he could finance the kind of movies that he liked to offer his fans.

I was reminded of today’s song thanks to ‘Chori Mera Kaam’. No, I haven’t discovered any hidden song in that movie. We have already Yippeee’d it. It reminded me of the Zeenat Aman – Shashi Kapoor films. ‘Chori Mera Kaam’ was followed by 10 films like ‘Vakil Babu’ (1982), ‘Bandhan Kachhe Dhaagon Ka’ (1983) etc.

There was this 1983 masala movie ‘Pakhandi’ directed by Samir Ganguly. It had Shashi Kapoor- Zeenat Aman -Asha Parekh- Sanjeev Kumar leading a cast with Ranjeet, Jagdeep, Helen, Leela Mishra as supporting cast. The song is the handiwork of Majrooh Sultanpuri-Laxmi-Pyare-Asha Bhonsle-Kishore Kumar. The video shows Zeenat and Shashi Kapoor participating in a DANCE COMPETITION!!!! Shashi Kapoor dancing???? I will not say that he was a bad dancer but definitely not in the same league as his brother Shammi Kapoor or his nephew Rishi Kapoor. He had a sense of rhythm like his other brother Raj Kapoor and no ‘two- left-feet’ issue like his contemporary Dharmendra. And this song has choreography very different from what we generally see Shashi do. It has prompted me to put this masala movie in my to be seen list.

Blog Day :

4589 Post No. : 16212

Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

Blog Day :

4565 Post No. : 16164

Regulars on the blog would have noticed that I was looking for movies where only one song was posted. Recently I shared some songs where I tried to add a second song to the ‘one song movies’ on the blog.

Then we also noticed that some movies were standing for a long time with ‘only one song’ represented on the blog for a long time. Some were fortunate to get represented with their second song because of the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ started with ‘2009-2019’ songs (from 02.02.2019).

The blog was started in the year 2008. And had the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ got started in 2018 the movies represented in 2008(and having only one song posted) would also have got reviewed and added with their second song.

So, movies introduced on the blog in 2008 missed the opportunity to get reviewed after ten years (and now we can say for around twelve-thirteen years)

I came across one such movie ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974’ which was introduced on the blog on 07.12.2008.
We added the second song of this movie on 14.12.2020 on the blog. The gap of posting between the two songs of above movie being ‘4390’ days.

So, let us wait and see who the winner is 😊

We are not yet concluding the ‘race’ (list) here, but adding one more movie which for now is already ahead of the ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam’ song.

S.No. Song Title Movie-Year First song Second Song Diff in days
01 Pyaar kiyaa nahin jaata ho jaata hai Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974 07.12.2008 —- —-
Achchha lagta hai ye bholaa bhaala sanwariya ___ 14.12.2020 4390 days
02 Lahron ki tarah yaadein Nishaan-1983 13.08.2008 Being presented today 4540 days

(we will keep updating this list if any other song ‘breaks’ the record of the movie ‘Nishaan’).

The first song from this movie ‘Nishaan-1983’ was posted on the blog on 13.08.2008.

‘Nishaan-1983’ was directed Surendra Mohan for ‘Brar Productions’.

It was produced by B.S. Shaad.

It had Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Rekha, Poonam Dhillon, Amrish Puri, Jeevan, Roopesh Kumar, Geeta Siddharth, Vijay Arora, Birbal, Satyen Kappu, C.S. Dubey, Jankidas, Rajan Haksar, Amarnath Mukherjee, Kamaldeep, Kanchan Mattu, Sarwar Kanwar, Shyam, Anand Girdhar, Shammi, Vijay, Baby Pinki, Master Rizwaan and others.

One known song from this movie ‘lahron ki tarah yaadein’ has been posted on the blog as mentioned above.

This movie had total six songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rajesh Roshan.

I remember that one more song from this movie i.e., ‘ankhiyon hi ankhiyon mein teri meri baat chali’ was also a popular song and frequently heard on radio (one may find this a typical L-P composition, but it is not 😊).

Another song which I liked from this movie is ‘beliyaa ab ke ye bahaar koi gul nayaa khilaayegi’.

But I am presenting a lesser heard song from this movie which one may find to be a Rajesh Roshan signature composition.

The song is duet song by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by Rekha and Jeetendra respectively.

let us now enjoy today’s song.

Today 4th January’2021 is the twenty-seventh Remembrance Anniversary of ‘Pancham Da- The genius’ or Rahul Dev Burman ‘the prince of music’.

He was born on 27th June’1939 and he passed away on 4th January’1994 at the age of fifty-four only.

On his Remembrance Day today as a tribute to him I am presenting a song sung by him from the 1983 movie ‘Romance’. For today’s occasion I was looking for a sad song and that also from a ‘debutant movie’. This song is a nice composition and picturized on Kumar Gaurav who is seen roaming in the fields, riverside, hilly areas and some picturesque locations (I don’t know which are these places).

The song though hummable will be liked by those only (I think so) who have not found ‘any purpose of life’ or ‘is missing someone or something in his life’😊 and that is why being annoyed with life the song goes ‘ye zindagi kuchh bhi sahi, par ye mere kis kaam ki’.

Otherwise, it is a nice song to listen and sung well by R.D. Burman with his special musical touch and style.

‘Romance-1983’ was directed by Ramanand Sagar for his home productions ‘Sagar Art Enterprises, Bombay’. Ramanand Sagar was also the producer of this movie. It had Shammi Kapoor, Kumar Gaurav, Poonam Dhillon, with Saeed Jaffrey, Helena Luke, Sushma Seth, Prema Narayan, and Tom Alter. They were supported by Viju Khote, Jugnu, Manmauji, Samrat Kapoor, Dr. Madan Kataria, Randhawa, Jawahar Bhan, Chandan, Yogee, Jitu Vyas, Moolchand.

This movie introduced Christopher, Lilli Put, Jillian. Raj Babbar, Ranjeeta and Ram Sethi make friendly appearance in this movie.

Story, Screenplay and dialogues for this movie were written by Mirza Brothers. Editing of this movie was done by Subhash Sehgal.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.10.1983.

This movie had five songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by R.D. Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Amit Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and R.D. Burman were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by R.D. Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. Music is by R.D. Burman himself as mentioned above.

let us now enjoy today’s song …
