Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 7
————————————————

On this day ten years ago (viz on 20 february 2009), six songs from six different movies were presented. Four of these movies have since been YIPPEED in the blog. Of the remaining two movies, one is from 1938 and another is from 1983. The 1938 movie (Shreet Singer) has two songs left to be covered and these songs are not available as far as I am aware.

So that leaves us with the 1983 movie viz “Sweekaar Kiya Maine” as the only eligible movie for our blog 10 year challenge.

“Sweekar Kiya Maine” (1983) was produced by S M Kothari and directed by Zaheer D Lari. The movie had Shabana Azmi, Vinod Mehra, Prema Narayan, Madan Puri etc in it. This movie was a remake of 1954 movie “Adhikaar” with Kishore Kumar and Usha Kiran in title roles. In “Sweekar Kiya Maine” (1983), Vinod Mehra and Shabana Azmi play the same roles.

“Adhikaar”(1954) is already YIPPEED in the blog. Curiously, Kishore Kumar sang a duet song Kamaata hoon bahut kuchh with Geeta Dutt, and in “Sweekaar Kiya Maine”(1983), he sang the same song again- this time with Asha Bhonsle. This duet is not yet covered in the blog.

So far, three songs from “Sweekaar Kiya Maine”(1983) have been covered in the blog. Ten years ago on this day, the blog presented a song, Chaand ke paas jo sitaara hai. Today, ten years later, here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata. Nida Fazli is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

This song is picturised on Shabana Azmi as a stage performance song.

Blog Day :

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Back to writing after a break and am having a problem trying to get my thoughts in order. These last few days I have made a few posts mentally and here I am trying to write about one of my favourite actors who would have turned 99 today.

The year 1972 saw a new genre of films wherein two actors who were past their prime – 61 and 52 was definitely not the age where actors play college students or young characters- were playing the central characters in a movie where the lead actor or the supposed- hero played second fiddle to these two. I am talking of Victoria No 203 by Brij Sadanah. Brij himself made another movie a few years later “Chori Mera Kaam” with these two seniors playing central characters. I am talking of an all-time favourite Jodi of cinelovers – Ashok Kumar and Pran.

S. K. Kapur was another producer -director who made this Jodi the centre of his stories in the moves of 70s and early 80s – Apna Khoon, Shankar Dada, Durga, Maan Gaye Ustaad. But the best tribute to the lovable Jodi was Kapur’s movie “Raja Aur Rana” – it didn’t have a regular actor playing the hero. Puneet Issar made his debut in this movie and was supposed to be a hero but “Raja aur Rana” was essentially Ashok Kumar- Pran all over. They did every antic that they were famous for from the time “Victoria No 203” became a success.

Before I go any further let me clarify one thing- Ashok Kumar and Pran did not team up for the first time in “Victoria No 203”; they have been cast together in movies since the 50s or even before that. Back then they used to play serious characters, mostly the protagonist and the antagonist. “Victoria No 203” changed all that. We saw the comic timing of these two senior actors.

I need to clarify one more thing- both these actors have performed in song situations through their career but post “Victoria 203” that also changed. The ability of these two to switch from insane characters of Raja and Rana can be gauged from the fact that about the same time Ashok Kumar played the grandfather in “Anuraag” and Pran was the grandfather in “Parichay”; Pransaab (as he used to be addressed) also played a regular cigar munching villain in “Roop Tera Mastana” that year. Such great actors and trailblazers – there are no replacements for them only actors who are inspired by them and aspire to be like them.

Today I bring to the blog a song from S. K. Kapur produced and Shibu Mitra directed “Raja Aur Rana”. The cast included Ajit, Shakti Kapoor, Puneet Issar, Madhu Malhotra, Chand Usmani, Aaloka etc etc supporting Ashok Kumar and Pran (Pran was always billed in the credits of movies as “And Pran”).

I have not seen the movie but I fell in love with this super Jodi all over again when I accidentally saw this song a few months back. We have Pransaab cross-dressing in this song and Shakti Kapoor and his henchmen playing the peeping- toms on the “loving couple”. The song was written by Varma Malik and Bappi Lahiri was the music director. We have Kishore Kumar singing for Ashok Kumar and Mahesh Kumar singing for Pransaab – the female voice belongs to Mahesh Kumar about whom our in-house encyclopaedia had written a few lines in a post of his. The post contained a song sung by Mahesh Kumar in dual voice, it seems he could sing in 32 voices.

This is such a cute husband-wife exchange with which we remember the adorable Pransaab on his 99th Birth anniversary.

I would also like to wish a fellow Atulite on his birthday today with lots of fun and music in his life. All the best to Avinashji on his birthday.


Song-Aji sunte ho (Raja Aur Rana)(1983) Singers-Mahesh Kumar, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

haaye haaye
haaye haaye haaye
aji sunte ho
o aji sunte ho
haan sunta hoon
aji sunte ho
lekar tum akhbaar ka panna
race ke ghode ginte ho
o aji sunte ho
koi vaid bulaao
koi doctor laao
hakeem mangaao
aji sunte ho

mujhe nauwaan lagaa hai
ik dard jagaa hai
haaye yahaan se uthha
aur yahaan gayaa hai
shaadi na hoti
main aaj na roti
dulhan na banti
bacche na janti
zaalim ye mahina
mera dhadke hai seena
tu dekh le apna
ye kaarnaama
kyun mujhe phansaaya
kar kar ke drama
ki toone mujhse
kartoot hai koi
tu mard nahin hai
jinn bhoot hai koi
o aji sunte ho
o aji sunte ho
haan sunta hoon

oye
ab kyun roti hai meri dulhan
pyaari tumhen yaad nahi aati
ab kyun roti hai meri dulhan
pyaari tumhen yaad nahin aati
woh baatein saari
har roz tu kehti
mujhe sair kara de
mujhe ticket manga de
mujhe film dikha de
chal India gate mein
zara ghoom ke aayen
aur Tajmahal mein
hum khaana khaayen
tu surkhi laali
powder bhi lagaati
aur daal ke surma
tu teer chalaati
tu karke fashion
har roz aa jaati
aur kehti le chal
mujhe Juhu Chowpati
wahaan paani puri
tu khoob udaati
kabhi idli dosa
kabhi kulfi khaati
main ho gaya kadka
palle nahin paayi
tera sair sapaata
kha gaya kamaayi
o bhool gayi tu
jab maze udaati
ab dard uthha toh
phir kyun chillaati
main sunta hoon
jeb mein kitne paise reh gaye
baitha baitha ginta hoon
main sunta hoon

munnu ke paapa
tera karoon siyaapa
mujhe hichki aaye (hitchki)
mera ji machlaaye (hitchki)
mujhe saans na aaye (hitchki)
mera sar chakraaye
mera munh bedardi
kya halaat kar di
main baithhi baithhi
khaaun hichkaule
koi amma amma
ander se bole
tu roz yeh kehta
ke munda hoga
agar tujhpe gaya woh
koi gunda hoga
main aath maheene
mushqil se bitaaye
tu pyaqr se ek din
nahin poochhne aaye
o aji sunte ho
koi vaidh bulaao
koi doctor laao
hakeem mangao
o aji sunte ho

kyon taane deti
sapnon ki raani
tere dushman mar jaayen
teri jiye jawaani
pehla aur dooja
kab tumhen laga thha
na tujhko khabar thhi
na mujhko pata thha
phir teeje maheene
meri khench rajaai
toone aadhi raat ko
khushkhabri sunaai
aur chauthhe paanchve
jab tu ghabraai
aur chhathe maheene
tujhe ulti aayi
main bhaag ke aaya
tujhe paass bulaaya
tujhe maalish ki thi
tujhe tel lagaaya
chhodo ab gussa
aa tujhe sula doon
tu thhak chuki hai
tere paanv daba doon
hai hai hai hai hai hai hai hai

biwi ke har koi (some sound by Ashok Kumar)
hai paanv dabaata
tu tel lagaake
ehsaan jataata
kis baat ke liye
phir tu akadta
gharwaala hoke
mere sar pe chadhta
aurat ka farz hai
bacchon ko janna
koi toone anokha
nahin kaam ye karna

mere paass na aana
batti na bujhaana
mujhe seeti bajaa ke
nahin kabhi bulana
meri tauba tauba
kaanon ko pakdoon
hai meri galti
main naak bhi ragdoon

jhaado na bhaashan
ka milta ration
hai ye situation
karwaao operation
dono nasbandi
chal kar karwaayen
kyun apne desh ki
aabaadi badhaayen

is mehangaai mein
ek baccha kaafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi
aage se tauba
aage se maafi

Muzzafar Ali, the producer-director of some of the parallel films has been very proud of the Awadhi culture. His father was the raja of Kotwara which is located in Lakhimpur Kheri district, a part of Awadh region. Moreover, he had completed his schooling in Lucknow, the centre of Awadhi culture. His sensibility towards Awadhi culture can be judged from his films, Gaman’ (1978), ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981), Aagaman’ (1984), ‘Anjuman’ (1986) and the last one, “Jaanisaar’ (2015) with Awadh as background. “More than a ‘royal’, I am ‘loyal’ to my root – Awadh” says Muzzafar Ali.

In ‘Gaman’ (1978), the young Ghulam Hasan goes to Mumbai from Lucknow in search of employment opportunity and ultimately become a taxi driver living in a slum. His wife and the ailing mother live in Lucknow eagerly waiting for his return. But he has no saving after working as a taxi driver for months to visit his native place. True to his love for Awadh, Muzzafar Ali chose the location in Kotwara for shooting a part of the film covering the scenes of Ghulam Hasan’s wife and his ailing mother. The dialogues during the scenes in the film in the native village between Ghulam Hasan, his wife and mother were in Awadhi.

Muzzafar Ali was so much into Awadh that for ‘Gaman’ (1978), he had first approached Amitabh Bachchan who is also from the Awadh region, for the role of Ghulam Hasan (The reason could be that there were many dialogues in the film in Awadhi). Amitabh Bachchan had first agreed to do the role in principle. However, later he felt that his ‘angry young man’ image would be affected by doing the role in the film. So he declined the offer. The role went to Farooque Shaikh. (This was revealed by Mazzafar Ali in a documentary video film).

In ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981), Muzaffar Ali takes us to the heartland of Awadhi culture – Lucknow-Faizabad belt in the film. The film depicts the nawabi Lucknow with its all grandeur – the language, the costumes, the sets etc. Probably, after his first experience of film production with ‘Gaman’ (1978), Muzzafar Ali became wiser. So he built into this film, some elements of commercial films like selecting Rekha for the role of Umrao Jaan. On a second thought, Asha Bhonsle was selected to sing songs for Rekha. He also selected the well-known theatre actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Shaukat Azmi, Deena Pathak, Gajanan Jagirdar to give the film a strong acting prowess in subsidiary roles. The mixing this ‘parallel’ film with commercial elements paid a rich dividend to Muzzafar Ali in that even after 37 years, this film has remained in the bloodstream of cinema fans.

‘Aagaman’ (1984) was Muzaffar Ali’s 3rd film, making it a part of the trilogy of films with the commonality of Awadhi culture. The film was produced by Uttar Pradesh Sugarcane Seed and Development Corporation under the banner of Integrated Films and was directed by Muzzafar Ali. The star cast included Suresh Oberoi, Bharat Bhushan, Saeed Jaffrey, Anupam Kher (his debut film), Dilip Dhawan, Deepa (her debut film), Sudhir Pandey, Yunus Parvez, Raj Bisaria, Javed Khan, Anjaan Srivastav etc.

It was the idea of Muzzaffar Ali to Vishwanath Pratap Singh, the then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh to commission a feature film highlighting the plights of sugarcane growers in Lakhimpur Kheri, which is called the ‘sugar bowl of Uttar Pradesh’. Most of the shooting of the film had taken place in Kotwar and around.

It is surprising that ‘Aagaman’ (1984) is not available for watching online. It appears that the DVD of the film is also not available for sale. I remember that in one of the programmes on Doordarhsan, Muzzafar Ali had mentioned that the sound negatives of both ‘Aagaman’ (1984) and ‘Anjuman’ (1986) were lost/destroyed. That means that the only chance to see the film is from the private collectors. I find that video clips of most of the songs of ‘Aagaman’ (1984) are available online.

Anyway, the broad story line of the film as I understand from some online sources is that a sugar mill owner of a village has been exploiting the sugarcane growers by not paying them remunerative prices. As a result, sugarcane growers remained poor and debtors. A young man from the village after completion of his education from Lucknow takes up the issue of sugarcane growers with the sugar mill owner. But his efforts do not bear fruit as there are vested interests in the village. Ultimately, with great persuasion, he makes reasons to sugarcane growers to set up a cooperative sugar mill. Now they not only get the fair price for the sugarcane but being the members of the cooperative sugar mill, they also share the profits from the mill.

The film has 8 songs out of which as many as 7 songs were composed on the published nazms of Faiz Ahmed Faiz. The remaining one song was written by Hasrat Jaipuri. All the songs were set to music by Padma Vibhushan Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan. It was his first film as a music director.

I am presenting the first song ‘nisaar mein teri galiyon ke ae watan ke jahaan’ from the film which is a nazm written by Faiz Ahmed Faiz. He wrote this nazm in the backdrop of the establishment of Pakistan’s first military government in 1958 when many repressive measures were taken. Dissents were not tolerated. There was censorship on the newspapers. Political leaders and intellectuals were arrested and imprisoned. The song is rendered by Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan.

Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan (born 03/03/1931) is the doyen of Rampur-Sahaswan Gharana and is highly respected among the new generation of Hindustani classical singers. He has a large number of his disciples/trainees which include Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, Kamal Barot, Suresh Wadkar, Hariharan, A R Rahman, Alisha Chinoy, Sonu Nigam, Shaan etc. I propose to write a detailed article on him sometime later.

The song in the video clip is somewhat shorter than the record version of the song due to a few lines repeated in the latter version. Furthermore, the order in which antara parts of the song is recorded in record version is different than the order in the sound track.

With this song, ‘Aagaman’ (1983) makes its debut in the Blog. The singer-composer also makes his debut in the blog.

Song-Nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan (Aagaman)(1983) Singer-Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan, Lyrics-Faiz Ahmad Faiz, MD-Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan

Lyrics (based on video clip)

nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan
chali hai rasm ke koi na sar uthha ke chale ae
nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan
jo koi chaahne waala tawaaf ko nikle
nazar churaa ke chale jism-o-jaan bachaa ke chale
nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan

bahut hain zulm ke dast-e-bahaana joo ke liye
jo chand ahl-e-junoon tere naam leva hain
bane hain ahl-e-hawas muddai bhi munsif bhi
kise vakil karen kis se munsafi chaahen
magar guzaarne waalon ke din guzarte hain
tere firaaq mein hi subah-o-shaam karten hain
nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan

yoon hi hamesha ulajhti rahi hai zulm se khalq
na unki rasm nayi hai na apni reet nayi
yoon hi hamesha khilaayen hain hamne aag mein phool
na unki haar nayi hai na apni jeet nayi
isi sabab se falak ka gila nahin karte
tere firaaq mein hum dil bura nahin karte
nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan

gar aaj tujhse juda hain to kal baham honge
ye raat bhar ki judaai to koi baat nahin
gar aaj auj pe hain taala-e-raqib to kya
ye chaar din ki khudaai to koi baat nahin
jo tujhse ahd-e-wafa ustawaar rakhte hain
ilaaj-e-gardish-e-lail-o-nihaar rakhte hain
nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan

bujha jo rauzan-e-zindaan to dil ye samjha hai
ke teri maang sitaaron se bhar gayi hogi
chamak uthhe hain salaasal to hamne jaana
ke ab sahar tere rukh par bhi kar gayi hogi
garaz-e-tasawwur-e-shaam-o-sahar mein jeete hain
giraft-e-saaya-e-deewaar-o-dar mein jeete hain
nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan

nisaar main teri galiyon pe ae watan ke jahaan
chali hai rasam ke koi na sar utha ke chale
jo koi chaahne waala tawaaf ko nikle
nazar churaaake chale jism-o-jaan bachaake chale

O my country! I bow to your streets.
They have decreed a custom that none shall walk holding his head high.
If any one wishes to take a round of walk,
walk sneakily, walk with a bend body (to avoid detection).

bahut hai zulm ke dast-e-bahaana-joo ke liye
jo chand ahl–e-junoon tera naam leva hain
bane hain ahl-e-hawas mudaai bhi munsif bhi
kise vakil kare kis se munsafi chaahen
magar gujaarne waalon ke din gujarten hain
tere firaaq mein hi subah-o-shaam karten hain

There are many excuses to continue the oppression
for some crazy people in the guise of your name.
With power of lust, they are both the plaintiff and the judge,
Whom to appoint lawyer and from whom does get justice?
But one has to persist with these hard times for days.
In separation from you, they spend time from dawn to dusk.

yoon hi hamesha uljhati rahi hai zulm se khalq
na unki rasm nayi hai na apni reet nayi
yoon hi humesha khilaayen hain humne aag mein phool
na unki haar nayi hai na apni jeet nayi
isi sabab se falak ka gila nahi karte
tere firaaq mein hum dil bura nahi karte

As always, we reel under oppression.
Neither their rituals nor our traditions is new
As always we have made flowers to bloom in fire
Neither their defeat, nor our victory is new
We do not blame the sky
Nor we feel bad in our hearts for separation from you.

gar aaj tujhse juda hai to kal baham honge
ye raat bhar ki judaai to koi baat nahin
gar aaj auj pe hai taale-e-raqib to kya
ye chaar din ki khudaai to koi baat nahin
jo tujhse ahd-e-wafa ustuvaar rakhte hain
ilaaj-e-gardish-e-lail-o-nahaar rakhte hain

Though separated today, tomorrow we shall be re-united.
Separation is only for the night it does not matter.
If today our rivals are at the peak of powers, so what?
These four days of divinity do not matter.
Those who love you keep a firm belief in you.
We keep the remedy of revolution day and night.

bujha jo rauzan-e-zindaan to dil ye samjha hai
ke teri maang sitaaron se bhar gayi hogi
chamak uthi hai salasil to hamne jaana hai
ke ab sahar tere rukh par bhikar gayi hogi
garaz-e-tasawwur-e-shaam-o-sahar mein jeete hain
giraft-e-saya-o-deewaar-o-dar mein jeete hain

When lights in the prison dim, my heart has felt
that your forehead has been lighted with stars.
When my chains have sparkled, I have known
that the dawn must have straggled upon your face.
We live by imagining the dawn and dusk
We live in the shadows of the high prison walls

“Sautan” (1983) was produced and directed by Sawan Kumar Tak. Tghe movie was a “social” movie starring Rajesh Khanna, Padmini Kolhapure, Tina Munim, Pran, Prem Chopra, Shreeram Lagoo, Shashikala, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Arora, Satyendra Kapooo, Roopesh Kumar, Yunus Parvez, T P Jain etc in it.

This movie is remembered the most for its song, Shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal dil mein aaya hai . Purists, such as Raja, heartily dislike this song, but non purist folks, who form the majority of population loved this song. There are lots and lots of people who regard this song as a timeless classic. 🙂

The song was about the mummy of the girl inviting the gentleman for chai, obviously to have a “chai pe charcha”. 🙂 The gentleman, aware what the mummy is up to, is reluctant, but gets himself persuaded to partake of that chai with the mummy.

What happens later ? The song under discussion happens in the aftermath of that event. The gentleman gets married to the lady and soon thereafter we find him singing this song where saasu and sasura are likened to teerath and wife is likened to Chaaron dhaam. 🙂 Every married man with readily agree. 🙂

Here is this song from “Sautan”(1983) which is sung by Kishore Kumar. Sawan Kumar Tak is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

The song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Teena Munim.

Atul ji, in many of his posts presenting Kishore Kumar songs from the eighties has mentioned this, that though the golden era of music was over by the beginning of eighties, still many gem songs also happened to be created in the decade of eighties, and particularly in case of Kishore Kumar songs. And one of the reasons for this may be because Kishore Kumar’s peak period started in 1970 and lasted till his death in 1987.

I am presenting one such song today which is from the 1984 movie ‘Farishta’. Movies by this name have also been released in earlier decades, notably in 1958 and 1968, we had movies with the same title.

This film was Pran Saab’s presentation for his home production Sikand Films (which I was not aware of till writing of this post). It is directed by Sunil Sikand (Pran Saab’s son), who was also the producer and story writer of this movie. He also co-authored the screenplay with Tapan Chakravarty.

The cast of actors includes Ashok Kumar, Kanwaljeet Singh, Master Raju, Ambika Shourie, Danny and Pran. Bharat Bhushan, Azaad and Master Rajiv Bhatia also have supporting roles in this movie. Smita Patil makes a special appearance in this movie. The movie introduced – Shera – a wonder dog in this movie.

(Other credits: Sudesh Iyer was the Chief Assistant Director; David Dhawan was the editor; of this movie; Gyandev Agnihotri wrote the scenario; and the dialogues were written by Pradeep Roy Choudhary. It was passed by Censor Board on 13.10.1983.).

Lyrics for this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and the music is composed by RD Burman. Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Anuradha Paudwal and Master Vivek Bajaj gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Kishore Kumar which is performed on screen by Pran Saab. Master Raju and others can be seen in the picturization of this song. With this song the movie ‘Farishta’ makes its debut on the blog today.

“Razia Sultan”(1983) was produced by Chitra Bharat and directed by G P Pawar and Kamal Amrohi. The movie had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Parveen Babi, Pradeep Kumar, Ajit, Vijayendra Ghatge, Jankidas, Sohrab Modi, Veena, Shahu Modak, Heena Kausar, Shree Bhagwan, Husn Banu, Anu Dhawan, Sapru, Mahipal, Roopmala, Reshma, Shakila, Maruti, Sarika, Tajdar Amrohi, Radha Saluja, Madhu Malini, Chitra, Sujata, B M Vyas, Anis Sabri, Geeta Kapoor, Mumtaz Begum, Naseem, Aarti Chopra, M M Baig, Amarjeet, Kalpana, Balraj etc in it.

This is a movie from 1983, and so I have no HFGK available to consult to find out he number of songs in the movie. Going by online sources, I have counted seven songs in the movie. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these five songs:-

Ae dile naadaan 150 14-Oct-08
Aayi zanjeer ki jhankaar Khuda khair kare 368 10-Dec-08
Tera hijr mera naseeb hai 374 11-Dec-08
Khwaab ban kar koyee aayegaa 7508 14-Feb-13
Jalta hai badan 8075 10-May-13

I find that “Hariyaala Banna aaya re” and ae khuda shukr tera” appear to be the two songs from the movie that are yet to be covered. On watching the picturisation, I find that both these songs are picturised together in the movie and so in effect they are reated as two songs in one. Asha Bhonsle, Jagjit Kaur and female chorus sing for ladies playing sahelis of Razia Sultan, the dulhan (Hema Malini) whereas Bhupinder Singh, Mahendra Kapoor and male chorus sing fopr friends of Yakut, the dulha (played by Dharmendra). So in effect, two wedding songs get combined into one in the picturisation.

So in effect both songs need to be covered in one article, viz this article. It seems that the female song is penned by Nida Fazli and male song by Kaif Bhopali. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter. The music is of course composed by Khayyam.

So, with these two songs, all the songs of “Razia Sultan”(1983) have been covered. With this, “Razia Sultan”(1983) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Kaun Kaise”(1983) was produced by Raj Valia and directed by Anil Ganguly for R V Productions, Bombay. The movie, which was a suspense movie, had Mithun Chakraborthy, Ranjeeta Kaur, Deepak Parashar, Anita Raj, Deven Verma, Ardhendu Bose, Prem Krishan, Narendranath, Bharat Kapoor, Beena, Ritika Singh, Asha Sharma, Dinesh Hingoo, Shubha Khote, Janki Das, Rajrani Sethi, Jagdish Raj, Neelu Arora, Zunuvia, Taneja, Ashok Gupta, A.A.Deepak, Indrajit Mukarji, Ratnakar, Prema, Dinesh.P., Kumari, Diwakar, Raju, Mohamed, Mehboob, Arpana Chowdhry, Gita Siddharth etc in it.

“Kaun Kaise”(1983) had five songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Kaun Kaise”(1983) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a disco dance song on Mithun Chakraborty who is seen mobbed by girls. Mithun Chakraborty was known for figuring in disco dance songs those days in every movie, even in movies where his roles called for more restrained behaviour, as in this movie. Here he plays a police inspector who is out to solve a murder mystery. But then Hindi movie heroes and heroines cannot help but break into a song and dance routine even if they are shown deaf and dumb -for instance Jayaprada in “Sargam”(1978). So Mithun da, a police inspector singing and dancing in a rather un police official like manner should not, and did not raise any eyebrows. 🙂

This movie had come about at a time when I had stopped following Hindi movies and I was neither aware of this movie nor its songs. The song itself is quite hummable.This song is not counted among the best known songs of those days, so it means that this song and the movie may not have done all that well.

With this song, “Kaun Kaise”(1983) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the first birth date, after the death of a personality who passed away at the age of 79 in December 2017. He retired from in front of the camera in 1999 after nearly 58 years of active Bollywood life. Amitabh Bachchan held him in high esteem and was always grateful to him for co-starring in ‘Deewar’ (1975) in a kind of second-hero role inspite of being much more senior and popular actor at the time when that film was being made.

Yes, today Shashi Kapoor would have turned 80. It is really saddening to remember him today. Infact, this last six to twelve months have been bad to fans of Bollywood; having lost personalities/ celebrities like Om Puri, Vinod Khanna, Sridevi, Shashi Kapoor etc. expectedly and unexpectedly. Vinod Khanna and Shashi Kapoor were ill for sometime but Om Puri’s and Sridevi’s deaths were shocking. But we never know what god has in store for us.

But let us snap out of this mood and enjoy the song with this post. It is from the 1983 film ‘Bandhan Kachchey Dhaagon Ka’. It is a song in the voice of Usha Uthup, Asha Bhonsle and Suresh Wadkar. It has music by Hemant Bhonsle, and lyrics by Anjaan. The movie was produced by KC Sharma and written and directed by Anil Sharma. The movie explored the relation between a happily married couple when faced with a new unexpected entrant in their life. Actually the husband is unaware that he has a son from a previous girlfriend (I don’t remember exactly if it is a previous girlfriend or an encounter with a particularly beautiful business associate). The child’s mother, Zeenat Aman, is bringing up the child as a single parent when she discovers she is terminally ill. So she sends the child across to its father without telling the child that “this is your father”. But the situation, much like in ‘Masoom’ (also in 1983) is enough to topple the apple cart of the family which takes the couple up to the threshold of divorce.

This movie came when Shashi Kapoor was looking younger than his age. When he was living a much-loved life. It never showed in his acting or his countenance that he was worried about his sick wife Jennifer. But when she died of cancer Shashi Kapoor was so heart broken that he suddenly aged, gained weight for a movie-role and then didn’t bother to loose it. Suddenly he was seen in fatherly and grand-fatherly roles when he was only  in his 40s and then took complete retirement from movies in 1999 at the age of 60. And then he was seen regularly at Mumbai’s Prithvi Theatre which he had set up with his wife. The last Bollywood movie he was seen in was ‘Akela’.

Remembering him today with this song in which he seen enjoying himself with Kalpana Iyer, Zeenat Aman and a group of rain dance revellers. And please note he has different dancing style in this song. 🙂

“Muqaddar Ki Baat” was produced by Bimla L Khaitan and directed by Kamal H Thakur. The movie had Neeta Mehta, Deepak Parashar, Rameshwari etc in it. This movie never saw the light of the day, though its records were released in 1983. There were eight songs in a 33 RPM record. These songs were sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Pushpa Pagdhare. Indeewar, Noor Ahmad and Bimla Khaitan (producer) were the three lyricists. Music was composed by O P Nayyar. Mahendra Kapoor had three solos, Pushpa Pagdhare had two solos, while there were three duets by the two.

Here is the first song from “Muqaddar Ki Baat”(1983) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor, Bimla Khaitan is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the details of this movie.

With this song, “Muqaddar Ki Baat” (1983)(unreleased) makes its debut in the blog. Now, all O P Nayyar movies (except one) have found representation in the blog. Now, “Zidd”(1994) is the only movie with O P Nayyar’s music that is not represented in the blog.

Blog Day : 3490 Post No. : 14022

First of all, I have to express my gratitude to this blog once again, it is only because of this blog that am able to share this post here. Though I have already shared many posts earlier, but today the personality I am writing about is of such a great stature that it is my fortune and blessings of this blog that I am able to do this.

Today we remember Ramchandra Narayandutt Dwivedi whom we fondly admire and respect as ‘Kavi Pradeep’ or ‘Rashtra Kavi Pradeep’ on the anniversary of his birth. He was born on 6th February,1915 and passed away on 11th December,1998 leaving behind a great legacy or even I can say a ‘heritage’ – a national heritage of his immortal poems and his ‘voice’.

I am short of words to add an adjective to describe his ‘voice’, because it cannot be expressed in words. It is an altogether a very different experience or rather divine experience to listen the songs sung by him. For that matter I think people like me who were born in end sixties and seventies or may be little later and even extending to the eighties, must have in their childhood heard his voice/songs playing on loud speakers, radio and in the earlier years of TV in India.

I cannot forget “Aao Bachcho Tumhein Dikhaayein“, and “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo“, one penned and sung by him and other penned by him, which were/are a ‘must’ on every Independence Day and Republic Day. And how rightly he said the value of ‘our hard fought freedom’ when he is talking to the new generation in this song “Hum Laaye Hain Toofaan Se Kishti Nikaal Ke’.

Then there are few songs which we used to listen when we grow up but can only understand their depth after we actually matured as adults. These are the philosophical song like “Dekh Tere Sansaar Ki Haalat“,  “Mukhda Dekh Le Praani“, “Pinjre Ke Panchhi Re“, “Doosron Ka Dukhdaa Door Karne Waale“, “Kabhi Dhoop Kabhi Chhaaon“, “Hum Ne Jag Ki Ajab Tasweer Dekhi“, “Koi Laakh Kare Chaturaayi“. Listening to these and songs sung by him have always given me a great motivation and inspiration other than giving peace to mind whenever I have felt like down with spirits or depressed and struggling with our day to day adversities.

He always wrote and sung with passion, pouring his heart and his feelings into his creations, and thus his songs whether patriotic, devotional or philosophical, when we listen to them, always take us to an altogether different ‘planet’ that is the magic of his words and his voice.

Like the song “Tere Dwaar Khadaa Bhagwaan“, I have never felt tired of listening to this song. I can listen to it many many times in one go. Then his song on the partition of India – “Aaj Ke Insaan Ko Ye Kya Ho Gaya“; one can just imagine the agony in his feelings and the ‘pain’ this ‘poet’ is going through on the degrading human values.

I would like to share here an incident which proves that if one gets a chance to listen to his songs they straight way take to one’s heart and mind forever and even the new generation cannot escape from his ‘passionate’ and ‘inspirational’ voice if they get that right atmosphere around where his songs are listened to. I was at Kota, in Rajasthan at that time in 1988-89. I had bought this compilation of Kavi Pradeep’s songs released by HMV. I presented this to one of my Senior Colleagues who was from Paudi Garhwal. He had a son and a daughter who was around 4-5 years old at that time.

After a gap of around 6-7 years when I was on tour to New Delhi I got a chance to visit this senior of mine and stay with them. As we were discussing his daughter came to me and said ‘Uncle, aap wahi Uncle ho na jinhone hamen Kavi Pradeep ji ki cassette di thi’.

What I want to put here is that if we the citizens of this country nurture good values, of course including the great heritage of our history, arts and culture, and pass them on to new generations, it will be certainly of a great help to instil in them the love for the nation and respect towards the great freedom fighters, soldiers of this country, the country – the land itself and our historical and cultural values.

Hindi movies already are doing great job in the service of nation and national integration. And Kavi Pradeep’s contribution in this cause is simply great and his poetry and songs need to be continuously passed on to the new generation to rouse patriotic values and love for the nation and its great historical heritage.

On this blog we always have this opportunity to share the works of such great persons and their art which they use as a ‘medium’ to reach people and in service of the ‘greater cause’ – ‘the nation’. And we have a long long way to go in this purpose of sharing his poetry /songs that he wrote for Hindi Movies. As per the ‘statistics’ page of this blog, we have till now posted only 167 (I hope this is the latest updated figures) out of the 531 songs he wrote for HFM.

Today I am sharing one of his songs which is written and sung by himself. This song, when I initially sent almost three years ago to Atul ji, I thought was a non-filmy song. As the link available then didn’t mention anything about this song. However, thanks to this book ‘Kavi Pradeep Ka Hindi Sahitya Mein Avdaan’ by Dr. Dinesh Chandra Awasthi which I got few months back and came to know that this song is actually from a ‘recent’ 1983 movie ‘Jai Baba Amarnath’ and not from a yesteryears movie or an NFS.

I like this song very much and it is ‘philosophical’ background song in the movie (as can be seen from the video of this song available now) and in the picturization of this song we can see Vikram Gokhale, Bina and others.

‘Jai Baba Amarnath’ was directed by BR Ishara for ‘King Movies’. It was produced by Badriprasad Joshi. It had Vikram Gokhale, Beena, Mahipal, BM Vyas, Surya Kumar, Anant Marathe, Maheshwari, Master Vikas, Mohan Choti, Meghna, Ratna Bhushan, Nayna Bhatt, Champshi Bhai, Ashalata, Bhagwan, Tun Tun, S Madan, Surekha Rane, Karunakar Pathak, Baiju Raja, Nanak Singh, Lakhan, Amit, Mishrilal, Hangama, Jaya Kaushalya, and Mahesh Desai.

The songs in this movie were sung by Kavi Pradeep, Mahendra Kapoor, Usha Khanna, Suresh Wadkar, Chandrani Mukerjee and Dilraj Kaur. The records were released by ‘Music India’. Sujit Sen and Subramaniam were Assistant Directors for this movie. SA Kadar was the Chief Assistant Director. Dahya Bhai was the Cameraman for this movie. The editing for this movie was done by LD Bhatia. Story of this movie was written by Pandit R Priyadarshi. Kavi Pradeep wrote the songs for this movie and music was composed by Usha Khanna.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.01.1983.

I have to confess here that I wished to write a detailed biographical write up (though I am not good in doing it like our senior members and other members) on Kavi Pradeep. I had actually started with it, but could not devote the time required, and so I am presenting a much briefer article about him. But that does not deprive us in enjoying this wonderful creation in his loving memory in our hearts. I will try to write his biographical sketch with more information about the movies he worked for in another article, as possible.

Let us now enjoy this philosophical yet motivational song, which is written and sung by Kavi Pradeep and composed by Usha Khanna. The movie ‘Jai Baba Amarnath’ makes its debut today on our blog.

 

Song – Udti Chidiya Behta Paani (Jai Baba Amarnath) (1983) Singer – Kavi Pradeep, Lyrics – Kavi Pradeep, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

udti chidiya..aa..aa
behta paani..ee..ee
inki kahaani kisne jaani
udti chidiyaa..aa..aa
behta paani..ee..ee
inki kahaani ee kisne jaani
duniya waalo suno
isi ko kehte zindagani
udti chidiya
behta paani
inki kahaani kisne jaani

jeewan to hai ek ramta jogi re
bhatakta jogi
kise pata kiski shaam
kal kahaan hogi re
kal kahaan hogi
dharti waalo suno
ye hain shabd aasmaani
udti chidiya..aa 
behta paani.ee
inki kahaani  kisne jaani

bada hi ajeeb hai ye
duniya ka mela
duniya ka mela
karodon ki bheed mein hai
har koi akela
yahaan har koi akela
sun’ne waalo suno
ye hai santon ki vaani
udti chidiya..aa 
behta paani..ee
inki kahaani  kisne jaani

sansaar ke hain bade
tedhe medhe raaste
tedhe medhe raaste
ye tamaam raaste hain
hum sab ke waaste
hum sab ke waaste
chalne waalo suno safar mein
rakhna saavdhani
udti chidiya..aa
behta paani..ee
inki kahaani..ee kisne jaani
udti chidiya..aa
behta paani..ee
inki kahaani..ee kisne jaani

उड़ती चिड़िया॰॰आ॰॰आ
बहता पानी॰॰ई॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी किसने जानी
उडती चिड़िया॰॰आ॰॰आ
बहता पानी॰॰ई॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी॰॰ई किसने जानी
दुनिया वालो सुनो
इसीको कहते ज़िंदगानी
उडती चिड़िया॰॰आ
बहता पानी॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी किसने जानी

जीवन तो है एक रमता जोगी रे
भटकता जोगी
किसे पता किसकी शाम
कल कहाँ होगी रे
कल कहाँ होगी
धरती वालो सुनो
ये हैं शब्द आसमानी
उडती चिड़िया॰॰आ
बहता पानी॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी॰॰ई किसने जानी

बड़ा ही अजीब है ये
दुनिया का मेला
दुनिया का मेला
करोड़ों कि भीड़ में है
हर कोई अकेला
यहाँ हर कोई अकेला
सुनने वालो सुनो
ये है संतों कि वाणी
उडती चिड़िया॰॰आ
बहता पानी॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी॰॰ई किसने जानी

संसार के हैं बड़े
टेढ़े मेढे रास्ते
टेढ़े मेढे रास्ते
ये तमाम रास्ते हैं
हम सब के वास्ते
हम सब के वास्ते
चलने वालो सुनो सफर में
रखना सावधानी
उडती चिड़िया बहता पानी॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी॰॰ई किसने जानी
उडती चिड़िया॰॰आ
बहता पानी॰॰ई
इनकी कहानी॰॰ई किसने जानी
