Hullo Atuldom

“Bond 303” (1985) was produced B.C. Devra and directed by Ravi Tandon. It was one of those movies that was in the making for a long time.

It was one of the three movies that had Jeetendra play a Spy- an Indian James Bond. His James Bond act began with his ‘mast bahaaron ka main aashiq’ in “Farz” (1967) continued with “Raksha” (1981) {in both these movies Jeetendra was Agent 116}. “Bond 303” was the third in that list.

This spy-movie had all the ingredients, a movie of this genre, required viz: a hero who looks handsome, can shake a leg, do action sequences with ease, and a bevy of lovely ladies. The lovely ladies of ‘Bond 303’ were headed Parveen Babi (in a double role), Jayshree T. and Helen. The list of supporting actors had Prem Chopra, Deven Verma, Tom Alter, Iftikhar, Satyen Kappu, Shreeram Lagoo, Dev Kumar, Yusuf Khan (a.k.a Zebisco of Amar Akbar Anthony).

The story was very simple:

There are terrorist attacks all over the world. Planes, trains, houses are blown to smithereens by unknown rockets! The one to call is India’s super agent Bond 303! When we first meet him he’s preoccupied with a dozen ladies and they all burst out in an intensive song-and-dance number! Bond 303 befriends a young smart scientist, played by the cool Parveen Babi and they start to gather information about the evil organization behind it all. But someone wants to stop them and sooner than you can say “curry” they are in gravy, oops they are in danger!

This Indian spy movie had five songs that were written by Gulshan Bawra and composed by R D Burman. Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, R D Burman, were the playback singers used. Today’s song is in the voices of Amit Kumar, Suresh Wadkar and Kalyani Mitra.

(The blog’s statistics page shows a name Kalyani Das Mitra whose 11 songs are there on the blog. I would like some knowledgeable follower to confirm if Kalyani Mitra and Kalyani Das Mitra are one and the same. The title song of ‘Saawan Ko Aane do’, posted on the blog, has Kalyani Mitra listed as playback singer.)
The song is a typical ‘roothna-manana’ song where Jeetendra and Deven Verma are seen trying to appease Parveen Babi and her companion. (I think that is Meenakshi Thakur, but I am not sure. Prakashchandraji, please help) The ladies are of course putting on an act of being upset with the boys.
We are wishing Suresh Wadkar on his 66th birthday. And remembering Gulshan Bawra on his 12th anniversary.

Hullo Atuldom

“Saagar” (1985) was produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. Its story, screenplay and lyrics were written by Jawed Akhtar and RD Burman was music director. The movie had 7 songs of which the blog has 5 but in my opinion we have covered six songs as the sad version of ‘saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare’ is found in the comments of post; which means that with today’s post “Saagar” will be YYIIPPEEEED!!!

Song Date of post
Maria o Maria 3 September 2008
Saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare 29 November 2008
Yoonhi gaate raho 9 August 2013
Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai 17 June 2018
Sach mere yaar hai 7 November 2020

We can see “Saagar” made its debut in 2008 ( 2 songs) then the next one came 5 years later. The movie waited for another 5 years when Atulji posted ‘chehra hai ya chaand khila hai’ and then we had a song last November.

“Saagar” was a star-studded movie (a term which was very commonly used in those times) with Dimple Kapadia (who was making a return to films), Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Saeed Jaffrey, Nadira, Madhur Jaffrey, Kiran Vairale, Shafi Inaamdar, Satish Kaushik, A K Hangal etc. Kishore Kumar, S P Balasubrahmanyam, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh. ‘Chehra hai ya chaand khila hai’ got Kishore Kumar his 8th Filmfare award. It was a film that was sent as an entry to the Academy Awards in the Foreign Language category. Interestingly, Kamal Haasan was nominated under the Best Actor and Best Actor supporting categories in the Filmfare awards of that year. He won it in the Best Actor category, his only award in Hindi films. Before that, in 1968, Ashok Kumar was nominated in two categories for ‘Aashirwad’. The movie had a very simple story of two friends falling in love with the same girl with an economic classes clash thrown in for good measure.

I had lots of songs to choose from for today’s post to wish Dimple Kapadia on her 64th birthday. This song from ‘Saagar’ gives us a glimpse of how beautiful Dimple is/was. How gorgeous her hair is/was. How elegant she is/was. Though she had signed ‘Saagar’ first other movies like ‘Zakhmi Sher’, ‘Lava’, ‘Manzil Manzil’ etc released first. She has since been seen in many movies where her characters have showed emotions, drama, action etc.

It was not easy writing out the lyrics to this song. There are so many different styles of breathing intonation, I didn’t know if the sound ‘ssh’ with which the song begins is a word or the character catching her breath when the hero touching her. But all-in-all a very romantic song and there is a beautiful play of lights reflecting off the waters of the pool.

Happy Birthday Dimple. may you have many more…

Hullo Atuldom

Last year, this post of mine spoke of “Sholay” inspired movies. Today’s song is from another “Sholay” inspired movie.

“Aandhi Toofan” that released in 1985 was directed by B. Subhash and produced by Pahlaj Nihalani. It had a cast of Hema Malini, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Kajal Kiran, Shatrughan Sinha, Mithun Chakravarthy, Shashi Kapoor (if I remember right, his was a special appearance), Danny, and Raj Kiran, Mac Mohan, Mazhar Khan, Tej Sapru, Sudhir etc. etc.

The cast of this movie has two actors who were part of the Hindi film industry since 1948:- (1) Sajjan who played Hema Malini’s father in “Johnny Mera Naam” was her servant in this one. (2) Raj Mehra who has played senior characters in many movies up till 1993 was Hema’s father in this.

The story was very very simple. Shashi Kapoor, a cop, arrests Balvir (Danny) who in turn wrecks havoc and kills the cop’s family. He then captures the cop who has gone on his trail, ties him up and when the new-bride goes to try and save him Balvir rapes her brutally in addition to killing the cop. The widowed wife (Hema) takes it on herself to seek revenge. She seeks help of two men Ballu (Mithun) and Raghu (Shatru) in this mission. The story is that simple.

I was reminded of today’s because of Prakashchandraji’s comment on this post. Exactly a year back I had a posted for “Gaana Kogile” (singing cuckoo in Kannada) or Isaikkuyil (as in Tamil for cuckoo) or the “Nightingale of South India’s” 82nd birthday. It is a year already and here we are wishing S. Janaki or Janakiamma, as her South Indian fans & film folks call her, on her next birthday. Here is wishing her health and happiness.

The song is a stage dance. We have Hema Malini performing almost like the Shiv-Taandav with flashbacks of the wedding and happenings that followed it. The song was written by Anjaan and Bappi Lahiri is the music director.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is a special day for Kaka fans. It would have been his 78th birthday.

On this occasion here is a song which is from Kaka a.k.a Jatin Khanna popular among his fans as Rajesh Khanna’s productional debut. “Alag Alag” (1985). It was produced by Rajesh Khanna and Kusum Narula, under the banner of Aashirwaad Films International, Bombay.

A small anecdote is noted – that Kishore Kumar did not accept any payment for his singing assignments in this film. He said that he felt indebted to Rajesh Khanna and ‘Aradhana’ for catapulting his career to a new high, and this being Rajesh’s first film as a producer, he would sing for him without accepting any payments.

The star cast of this film is listed as Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Deven Verma, Sushma Seth, Gita Siddhartha, Urmila Bhatt, Anjana, Raj Rani, Rajesh Puri, Subiraj, Asit Sen, Bharat Bhushan, Bhagwan, Satyen Kappu, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Vikas Anand, Manmauji, Manik Dutt, Sunil Dhawan, Gurbachhan, with special appearance by Bindu and friendly appearances by Om Prakash and Om Shivpuri. Music director was Kaka’s favorite RDB who was instrumental in securing Kak’s position as a superstar in the beginning of the ’70s. Anand Bakshi another of those responsible for the Kaka phenomenon was the lyricist. And finally the director was Shakti Samanta- the maker of ‘Aradhana’, ‘Kati Patang’ ‘Amar Prem’ etc. All-in-all the movie had everything that would have ensured a success at the box-office.

It seems that it was inspired from a Pakistani film “Meherbani” that released in 1982. It is remembered for its different story-line and its picturesque locales-Kashmir. I am sure our Nahmji has mentioned this in one of her recent posts about how she went location-spotting on her tour of Kashmir. One of the reviewers of this movie has mentioned that this was a movie where Tina Munim showed sparks of being a dedicated actress.

Sudhirji has given the story of the movie in this writeup. Sudhirji’s post mentions that the Geet Kosh has listed seven songs for this movie in addition to the song that he had unearthed.

Today we will be having the fifth song of ‘Alag Alag’ which is sung by Rajesh Khanna’s voice Kishore Kumar. It is reminiscent of all the melodious and melancholic songs of the period when Kaka was on his upward movement. It has his eyes doing all the speaking. Lata Mangeshkar sings for Tina Munim.

Wishing he was still with us.


Song-Tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin (Alag Alag)(1985) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

aaaaa aaaaa
aaaaa aaaaa
kaagaz kalam dawaat le ye kissa likhe koi

kaagaz kalam dawaat le ye kissa likhe koi
raanjha raanjha karte phir ik heer deewaani hoyi
jab se tujhko dekha aa aa aa
jab se tujhko dekha hai
main sabko bhool gayi hoon
auron ki kya baat karen
main rab ko bhool gayi hoon
tere naam ke siwa aa kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin

kya shaadi kya doli kaise chaar gavaah kya kaazi
duniya se kya lena dena

toone kya kar diya kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin

Hullo Atuldom

“Saagar” (1985) had a cast of Dimple Kapadia, Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Hasaan, Saeed Jaffery, Nadira, Sharat Saxena, Shafi Inaamdar, Satish Kaushik, Lilliput and Madhur Jaffery. It was directed by Ramesh Sippy and was produced by G P Sippy’s ‘Sippy Films’. It was a vehicle for Dimple’s comeback into Bollywood after her sabbatical brought on by marriage and family life. She was making a comeback after a gap of about 11 years. Her heroes were also her age group so they made an eye-pleasing team.

“Saagar” was a simple love story of a rich boy falling in love with a ‘not-so-well off girl’ who helps her father run a tavern in a fishing village . She has a childhood friend (Kamal) who loves her but cannot get himself to profess it. Into this village the rich boy (Rishi) walks in, befriends Raja (Kamal) and falls in love with Mona (Dimple). There is also friendship between the three, almost reminiscent of Raj Kapoor’s “Sangam”. We have Ravi’s (Rishi) grandmother playing the spoke in the cartwheel of the lovers. We also have one friend sacrificing his love for the happiness of the other two.

All-in-all nothing spectacular just that the movie was entertaining and we had the lead actors giving good performances. The songs were written by Javed Akhtar, and RD Burman was the composer. He had Kishore Kumar (who won a Filmfare award for “Saagar kinaare”), Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramaniam, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh singing the songs in the movie.

I am writing this post to wish the superstar of South Indian cinema on his 66th birthday. He has been in the industry from a young age. He began as a child-actor and I have written a brief about him in this post of mine four years ago. So let us get directly to the song and marvel at this actor’s ability to emote with his eyes.

The song is sung by SPB and is a party song which is a celebration of the characters birthday. It has Nadira and Lilliput who are aware of Raja’s feelings and Saeed Jaffery and others who are oblivious. The song also begins with RD’s trademark of making music with unusual instruments; here he has used a comb.

Wishing Kamalhassan all health and happiness today on his 66th birthday.

19/10/2020 – 64th Birthday of Sunny Deol
——————————————-
“Betaab” (1983) was produced by the Vijayta Films banner Dharmendra. This was the debut Hindi film of its lead actors, Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh. Today is Sunny Deol’s birthday, real name Ajay Singh Deol, made his debut at the age of 27 years.

The word “Betaab” evokes the Lata Mangeshkar’s melodious song “ Betaab dil ki tamanna yahi hai” by Madan Mohan in the film “Hanste Zakhm”. For a change, this is one of the films which I have seen, when it was released. I wanted to see the songs of this film for some time now, Sunny Deol’s birthday gave me the excuse. I have seen some of them, looking for a song shot on location. Critically speaking, this is not among the better scores by R. D. Burman. This is very basic, run of the mill music score, none of the RDB versatility being in evidence. May be the 80’s monotony is catching up with me. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist.

The location of the major parts of this film is a valley in Pahalgam, Kashmir, below the road leading to the glacier. The valley is named “Betaab valley”, and all tourist vehicles stop there on the way to Amarnath cave. It is a beautiful location, with the river flowing next to it.

We visited Kashmir in May 2012. I can say that it is one place on earth where time has stood still. I found a multiple locations which were seen in so many films of 60-80’s, the same as seen in the movies. Movie makers favorite location was the Dal Lake. The area surrounding it was a lot different, from what was seen in movies like “Aarzoo”. But I could see many places at Gulmarg and Pahalgam same as it was seen in movies. Seeing the wooden shop fronts in Pahalgam town, I remembered seeing the scene is “Bobby”.

Actually, Pahalgam has much more pristine and beautiful locations and points off the beaten track also, like the area called “Mini Switzerland”. I know the technology is so much advanced, and many megapixel cameras are now available to mankind to capture the nature’s beauty. But it is a fact that the human eye’s capacity is 576 megapixel. As far as I can understand, there is no camera in the world which can click or record at 576 megapixel.

This is what Google says, going to such details on a simple search:
“We see in 576 megapixel definition when our eyes are moving, but a single glance would only be about 5-15 megapixels. What’s more, your eyes naturally have a lot of flaws that a camera or digital screen don’t. For example, you have a built-in blind spot where your optic nerve meets up with your retina.”

Fantastic ! or zabardast ! But the fact remains whatever the camera captures or the digital screen displays, are to be seen and read by human eye. Visual input to the brain is through the eyesight, the brain can read only what the eyes will transmit.

Where I am going with all this? No where. But I can’t say I appreciate the way Google tried to dodge my question:) .

tajalli hai teri ye chaand kyaa hai chaandni kyaa hai
agar nazren salaamat hain to jalwon ki kami kyaa hai

Shakeel Badayuni – Laila Majnu(1953)

But I should not count my chickens here, as artificial intelligence may be able to transmit the perfect digital picture to human mind also, for all I know.

Like I said, give me such outdoorsy songs anytime, I am presenting the Shabbir Kumar Solo from “Betaab” filmed completely on location of the said ‘Betaab Valley”. In the song, Sunny Deol has found a “tasveer” of his childhood sweetheart Amrita Singh, in a magazine. He makes a cut out of the photo and sings this song, at his farm house, where he is shown to be rearing horses, and chickens etc.

In the movie Sunny Deol kidnaps Amrita Singh from her father’s house and keeps her in the farm house (seen the song) in a bid to remind her of their childhood friendship and love.

Some more trivia about the film:

• Singer Sonu Nigam played the role of Sunny Deol’s character as a child in this film.
• This film was remade in Telugu as “Samrat” (1987) and in Kannada as “Karthik” (2011).
• This was Javed Akhtar’s first film as a solo screenwriter after Salim – Javed split.
• Singer Shabbir Kumar got his big break in Hindi films when R.D. Burman got him to sing for all the songs in this film.

The movie must be something special to be remade in Telegu and Kannada, a reversal from what usually happens. I will elaborate the bit about Shabbir Kumar is the trivia above. It was said that, all songs of the film were to be recorded by Kishore Kumar. But since Kishore Kumar was away at the time, and the songs were needed for the scheduled shooting, they were recorded in the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The intention was to re-record the Shabbir Kumar portions afterwards in Kishore Kumar’s voice. But the songs turned out to be so well in Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar’s voices, that it was decided to keep the songs as it is. And thus the career boost for Shabbir Kumar happened.

I will end the post with a dialogue (by Sunny Deol) in the film, where Amrita Singh refuses to eat the food cooked by Sunny Deol. This is the dialogue I have had to repeat sometimes to my kids, 🙂 🙂 if they disagreed with my cooking:

“Khaana hai to yahi khaana hai, nahi khaana hai to bhi yahi khaana hai”

“Aakhir Kyon”(1985) was produced and directed by J Omprakash. Now I realise why this movie title starts with the letter “A”. 🙂

The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Smita Patil, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Asrani, Sujit Kumar, Shubha Khote, Beena Bannerjee etc in it.

THe movie was a archtypical South Indian “social” movie. Peevesie’s mom, while discussing one earlier song from the movie had provided this summary of the story of the movie

That movie had a very topical theme of a wife (Smita Patil) being abandoned by her whimsical husband (Rakesh Roshan) for another girl (Tina Munim). The story goes on to show Smita becoming a TV anchor (she was one prior to coming into movies) and then graduating to a Novelist. Then it turns out that when her husband’s business falls in bad times he approaches her; requests her to write for him; so that he can get their daughter (whom had forcibly kept with himself at the time of separation) married decently. That is the gist of the movie. We also had a partly bald Rajesh Khanna playing a TV (DoorDarshan) cameraman who admires Smita for her rebounding power and is a support to her throughout.

This movie came at a time when DD was the only channel available and people used to have one TV in their drawing rooms. And whole families used to sit and watch whatever was dished out to them. Otherwise I cannot imagine an entire family sitting and watching this kind of a musical show on TV these days. Also those were the days when people used to quote Rani Jhansi in all their speeches. Also Indira Gandhi and Margaret Thatcher were sources of inspiration.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far, with the movie making its debut in the blog in 2008, the first year for the blog !
Here are the details of the song covered in the blog :-

Blog post number Song Date posted
422 Dushman na kare dost ne wo kaam kiya hai 21 December 2008
5603 Saat rang mein khel rahi hai 8 March 2012
9544 Komal hai kamzor nahin tu 8 March 2014
15696 Ek andhera laakh sitaare 2 July 2020

We can see from the table that second and third song from the movie were discussed on 8th march (2012 and 2014) on the occasion of Women’s day. It shows that the movie had some sort of “Women’s empowerment” message in the movie.

Today (17 october 2020) happens to be the birthday anniversary of Smita Patil (17 October 1955- 13 December 1986). On this occasion, here is the fifth and final song from “Aakhir Kyon”(1985) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song is picturised as a get together song where Smita Patil lip syncs this semi classocal song while others, including Tina Munim, Rakesh Roshan and others look on. Tina Munim also uses this opportunity to fantasise about Rakesh Roshan.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, all the five songs of “Aakhir Kyon”(1985) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog. This movie took nearly 12 years (3753 days to be precise) to get YIPPEED.

This song is the 3600th song of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog.

13/10/2020 – 33rd death anniversary of Kishore Kumar
——————————————————————————–

Today is that day when we all remember the phenomenal Kishore Kumar. I should have planned ahead, but could not do so. Firstly I am working on so many posts at once that it is becoming a blur what is done and what is not. Secondly, I was under the weather for the whole weekend, and antibiotics make me more blurred than anything else.

Well, a post is to be done so one must look for a song. There are scores of songs to choose from. I have thought of a song from “Kaaran”, but I found today that it is already posted. Next I thought of the song from Poonam(1981) “main hoon haseena khol darwazaa dil ka”, which is not posted, but it turned out to be Amit Kumar’s song. It is possible for me to confuse Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar songs, as both sing in the same style and have similar voices. For example for a long time I was under the impression that bade achche lagte hain from Baalika Badhu is Kishore Kumar singing.

Then I looked for songs in the year 1980, thinking how there were so many songs which Kishore Kumar sang with Mohammed Rafi sahab. There was a pattern there where songs of major film in 1979, 1980 and 1981,in movies like, Shaan, Abdulla, Dostana, Naseeb, Karz, The Burning Train, Jaani Dusham, Kaala paththar, Raajput, The Great Gambler, Aap ke deewane, Aap to aise na thhe, Aas Paas, Bulandi, Ham Paanch, Raam Balram, Swyamvar , Kaalia, Khuda Qasam, Deedar-e-Yaar etc. were divided among the two of them.

Not specifically looking for Rafi-Kishore song, almost decided on a background Kishore solo from “Apne Paraaye”, which is a sad song, with everyone crying (there are many characters including Shabana Azmi) except Amol Palekar, who is smiling in his inimitable way. This is a “afsardaa” or a despairing category song.

But I moved beyond this one too and have landed on a song from “Zabardast” (1985). I am glad to be listening and viewing this song. I have not seen this movie either, but it was a multi-starrer of a kind and four of those stars are present in this outdoor picnic song. What with school kids carrying colour full flags, school bus, Rajeev Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri with an umbrella as a prop, Bagpiper like music in the interlude, and two cars on Table land of Panchgani.

Give me such songs anytime, I prefer these type of songs to club, party or dance songs. The song starts with Rati Agnihotri and Rajeev Kapoor arguing on Table land, Sunny Deol and Jayaprada march in with the school kids carrying flags. Sunny Deol hands over the white flag to Rati Agnihotri as a peace offering and Rajeev Kapoor starts singing the song. The Umbrella prop is visible throughout.

Song is a solo by Kishore Kumar, entirely sung on screen by Rajeev Kapoor, who is trying to woo Rati Agnihotri. Sunny Deol and Jaya Prada are also present and looking on. A good, catchy and feel good song, composed by R. D. Burman and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

This movie is making its debut here with this song. Out of total 2709 songs recorded by Kishore Kumar 1209 are posted in the blog.
A tribute to the ‘harfanmaula’ on this Remembrance Day.

Lata Mangeshkar – 91st birthday on 28/09/2020
————————————————————————–
Today is the day when the “Nightingale of India”, Lata Mangeshkar was born 91 years ago.

In 1973, she won the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer for the song “Beeti Na Bitaayi” from the film Parichay, composed by R. D. Burman, and written by Gulzar.

In 1975, she again won the National Award, this time for the song “Roothe Roothe Piya” from the film KoraKaghaz, composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

She won her third National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer for her rendition of the song “Yaara Sili Sili” from the film “Lekin”, which was composed by her brother Hridaynath Mangeshkar.

In 2001, Lata Mangeshkar was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honour.
A lot of information about her early days, family background and career progress are available here.

I have selected a song from 1985 to post on this occasion. Scores of her hit, known and popular songs from all decades are yet to be posted, so it was no easy task to arrive at a single song. This is a solo from the film ‘Arjun”, written by Javed Akhtar and composed by R. D. Burman. It is a typical, teasing and appeasing song, where hero Sunny Deol and Heroine Dimple are running around usual garden locations in Mumbai, while Dimple is singing this song by LataMangeshkar. Actually the stanza’s are very uplifting and motivating for someone who is dejected. Sunny deol looking like a petulant child and Dimple is trying to make him see the positive side of things. The encouraging tone sounds less romantic and more children’s song, if only heard. I was a fan of Dimple those days, and saw her few films. I thought I might have seen this one too, but when I found the video, it was clear that I was seeing it for the first time. The catchy tune and song I knew well, but remembered only the mukhda bit with hazy re-collection of words. All these years I have been humming this song, sometimes using “Neeli neeli aankhon”, after “neele neele ambar par” which was also a favourite. My sister would often correct me that it is ‘Bhoori bhoori” not ‘neeli neeli”.

I heard the pop/rock song ‘kokokorina” by Ahmed Rushdi sometime back. Stumbled upon the song at Wikipedia page on Kishore Kumar, to be precise. I heard the song, it didn’t ring a bell, so I had never heard it before. But the song seemed somewhat familiar as if its tune is taking me to some other song. On hearing it a few more times, I landed on this sometime ‘neeli’ and sometime ‘bhoori bhoori aankhon wala ekladka hai” song. I have since searched the net to find if there is a connection, or only I feel like that. Seems I am the only one who could connect these two songs. The RDB page on itwofs.com features as many as 42 songs, linking to inspiration and similar tunes. But this case of “Arjun’ song is not listed there.

I see that in the Wikipedia page also this song is mentioned in relation to RDB songs by Lata in the 80’s :

Some Rahul Dev Burman compositions for Lata in these years include “Aaja Sar-e-Bazaar” in Alibaba Aur 40 Chor (1980), “Bindiya Tarase” in Phir Wohi Raat (1981), “Thodi Si Zameen” in Sitara (1981), “Kya Yahi Pyar Hai” in Rocky (1981), “Dekho Maine Dekha” in Love Story (1981), “Tune O Rangeele” in Kudrat (1981), “Jaane Kaise Kab” in Shakti (1982), “Jab Hum Jawan Honge” in Betaab (1983), which became instantly popular, “Humein Aur Jeene” in Agar Tum Na Hote (1983), “Tujhse Naraaz Nahin” in Masoom (1983), “Kahin Na Ja” and “Jeevan Ke Din” in Bade Dil Wala (1983), “Jaane Kya Baat” in Sunny (1984), “Bhoori Bhoori Aankhon” in Arjun (1985), “Sagar Kinare” in Sagar (1985), “Din Pyar Ke Aayenge” in Savere Wali Gaadi (1986). “Kya Bhala Hai Kya”, “Khamosh Sa Afsana” and “Seeli Hawa Chhoo” in Libaas (1988).

I have made a very brief list of such songs, which starts with ‘tu meri zindagi hai”, and if two posts for today are over, then two more songs in the list remain.

As for the blog, Lata Mangeshkar’s tally stands at 3589 out of 5645.

With sixes galore, turning the matches in IPL, I will end this post with this very positive stanza of the song:

tu maane na maane aisa din aayegaa
jab duniyaa ke chehre se gham dhul jaayegaa
phool khilenge rang hansenge aanchal aanchal
aangan aangan goonjengi khushiyon ki paayal
