Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) – 8 (1988)

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1988.

In the previous posts under this series we have already seen how the number of movies where music was composed by RD Burman was on a ‘reducing’ trend since 1986, as compared to the previous years from 1981 to 1985. Here is the list of movies from the year 1988 where music for these movies was composed by him.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Rama O Rama’. I was aware of the title song of this movie since long as this song was featured in one of the albums of songs sung by Amit Kumar. Also I did like this song very much.

‘Rama O Rama’ was directed by Mirza Brothers for Mirza Brothers Films Pvt Ltd’. It had Raj Babbar, Kimi Katkar, and debutant Aasif. The cast also included Pran, Raza Murad, Kiran Kumar, and Gulshan Grover. Supporting cast of this movie included Shammi, Shiva, Vishakha, Prabha Mathur, Shaila Khan, Murari Sharma, Rohit, Sridhar, Master Imran, Master Lovely, Baby Aisha, Master Javed, and others.

The story and screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers. And editing of this movie was done by Vijay Pande.

The film has 6 songs. Lyrics for the songs in this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and Usman Aarif. Music is composed by RD Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Mohd Aziz, Jayshree Shivram, Iqbal Siddiqui gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie included the following sound tracks,

Sl. No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz
02 Barson Ke Baad Dekha Aarif Iqbal Siddiqui
03 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Jayshree Shivram
04 Taubaa Aashiq Aur Aisa Anand Bakshi Asha Bhonsle, Mohd. Aziz
05 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Amit Kumar, Jayshree Shivram
06 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz

Today’s song is sung by Amit Kumar and Jayshree Shivram. On screen the male version is lip-synced by debutant Aasif. I am unable to identify the actress lip-syncing the female version on screen.

This was Amit Kumar’s first recording after the death of Kishore Kumar (he has mentioned about this in an interview). We can see the difference in his voice in singing of this song. He does sound like Pancham Da in the alaap “Raama O Raama”. This is a poignant song we can see how he has poured his heart in this song.

I have not watched this movie. But as mentioned above I only remember the today’s song from this movie since long or since 1988/89 I think. Yesterday was the eighty-third birth anniversary of musical genius RD Burman. Let us listen to his this poignant composition. I am sure you will like this composition very much.

With this post the movie ‘Rama O Rama’ makes its debut on the blog.

Blog Day : 4972 Post No. : 16847 Movie Count : 4582

I have in my earlier posts mentioned that nowadays I am getting to listen ‘radio’ for at least ‘two to two and half’ hours every day. And mainly I listen the programmes on Vividh Bharati only.

So, in the morning time it is part of ‘ham hai raahi pyaar ke’ and ‘Bharat ki goonj’ and evening times it is part of or sometimes full edition of ‘Shaam sindoori’, ‘Sangeet sarita’, ‘Jaymala’ etc.
Now that is the daily schedule since 2nd November’2020. This has given me the opportunity to listen variety of songs from the yesteryears and even the songs from recent times. I have come across many unheard songs and some beautiful songs even from the eighties and nineties. I will try to share them as and when possible.

For today’s post I am presenting a song from the 1987 movie ‘Aakhiri Nishchay
’, which I got to listen in a program on ‘Vividh Bharti’.

Though many sources mention this movie’s name as ‘Nishchay’ too. I think the ‘Nishchay-1986’ was later released in ‘1987’ with the title as ‘Aakhiri Nishchay’.
While searching more details for this movie first I landed to the movie name ‘Nishchay’ and later it was cleared, that it is ‘Aakhiri Nishchay’. Though ‘vinyl’ images for ‘Nishchay’ (not to be confused he same name movie ‘Nishchaiy’ of 1992) are also available. (Though ‘Hindi Filmography’ 1986-2013 doesn’t mention any such note for this movie).

‘Nishchay-1986’ or ‘Aakhiri Nishchay-1987’ was directed by K.C. Agarwal for ‘B. Govinda Productions’.

Jairam Chawla was the producer of this movie.

It had Shekhar Suman, Sadhna (south), Seema Vaz, Satish Kaul, Surendra Pal, Sudhir Dalvi, Yunus Parvez, Bali Grover, Ratan Allakh, Jay Chawla, Raja Duggal, Raj Kishore, Asha Sharma, Anil Chaddha and others. The movie also featured a dog – Jackie.

As mentioned in ‘Hindi Filmography (1986-2013)’ this movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.12.1987.

Almost all the sources mentions that this movie had four songs in it. Voices of Mahendra Kapoor, Anup Jalota, Hemalata and Susheel Kumar are used in these songs.

Lyrics for all the four songs were written by Ravindra Jain who is also the music director for this movie.

When today’s song was playing on VVB I liked it very much because of the tune, words and singing of this song which is very beautiful, and this is a ‘sweet’ ‘romantic’ duet. This song is sung by Hemlata and Susheel Kumar.

As mentioned above lyrics for this song have been written by Ravindra Jain who is also the music composer for this movie.

And today 28th February’2022 is the seventy-eighth birth anniversary of music-director, lyricist Ravindra Jain (28 February 1944 – 9 October 2015). On this occasion we pay our tributes to Ravindra Jain and listen to this song written and composed by him.

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

Let us now listen to today’s song …

With this song ‘Aakhiri Nishchay-1987’ makes its debut on the blog …

Song-Aa to gaye hain tere sang tanhaai mein (Aakhiri Nischay)(1988) Singers-Hemlata, Susheel Kumar, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

aa to gaye hain

pyaasa bahut hoon main lekin
itnaa deewaana nahin

o o o o
tu hai meri chaahat se anjaana kya
o ho ho ho o

doon pyaar ka nazraana kya
tujhko shaayad ab tak iska ilm nahin
(ho o o o

tere sang jeene ko
koyi marne lagaa hai

ho o o o hamse wahi ho naa jaaye
khatraa hai jis baat ka

o ho ho ho o o
main hoon tera mujhse ghabraana kya
baahon mein aa aa
sharmaana kya aa

mere hamdam ab to hardam dil mera
teri chaahat ka hi dam bharne lagaa hai

dil ki baatein kehne ka
yahi mausam hai
tujhe paane ko dil
zid karne lagaa hai

aa to gaye hain
tere sang tanhaai mein
ab tanhaai se darr lagne lagaa hai

Hullo Atuldom

21st December 1963 is the date of birth of Shri Govind Arun Ahuja, so that means he steps into the 59th year of his life on 21st December 2021. Govind Arun Ahuja is the son of former actor Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. We all know Govind Arun Ahuja as Govinda, he is the youngest of six children. Many members of his family- niece and nephews- are also into acting as also his daughter Tina.

He saw the Mithun starrer “Disco Dancer” and practiced dancing for hours, made a promotional VHS cassette and circulated it to various production houses in a bid to make in-roads into Bollywood. Anand Singh; who played Amol Palekar’s friend in ‘Gol Maal’ and was the person who mouths the dialogue ‘aao aao mere late lateef’ in the football match scene; was an assistant to Hrishikesh Muherjee; is Govinda’s mama. He is the one who offered him “Tan-Badan” where he was cast opposite Khushboo (who later became a superstar/actor in South Indian films). Around the same year, he also signed up for “Love ’86” and “Ilzaam”. Eventually, “Love ’86” was his first release, followed by “Ilzaam” and then “Tan-Badan”. Of these, “Love ’86” and “Ilzaam” were super successful.

That was the period when the super actors of yesteryears viz.- Raj Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Jeetendra, Dharmendra, Ashok Kumar, Pran, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna etc.- were on their second innings of their career, meaning playing senior characters. Govinda has played second lead and other such characters in movies with these seniors. That was the way his journey in Bollywood started. He has completed 35 years in the entertainment industry. He has been a hero to actresses like Khushboo, Farha, Mandakini, Neelam, Karisma Kapoor, Kimi Katkar, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Meenakshi Seshadri, even Sridevi played his romantic interest in two movies. Any post on Govinda is incomplete without the mention of David Dhawan (who gave him a series of hits with the ‘No.1’ tag), Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor and Johnny Lever- constants in all Govinda films of the ’90s.

Kishore Kumar was very much present around the time that Govinda made his debut and today we are having a Kishore Kumar Asha Bhonsle – a hit jodi- duet on another hit Jodi- Govinda and Neelam. It is from the 1988 release “Hatya” which was directed by Kirti Kumar (Govinda’s brother). The songs of the movie were written by Indeevar and tuned by Bappi Lahirri. It had a cast of Anupam Kher, Raj Kiran, Om Shivpuri, Johnny Lever, Babu Anthony (a tall, lanky & good looking actor of south Indian films who hasd a great physique too), Aparajitha etc along with Baby Sujitha who played a deaf and mute child around whom the story revolves. It was a remake of a Malayalam movie that was originally directed by Fazil who also wrote the movie in for Hindi along with Kadar Khan. The deaf and mute boy , who is a witness to the brutal murder of his mother, is found by Govinda (Sagar) who makes an effort to locate his parents. Sagar gets into trouble with the cops who think that he is the culprit of the child’s mother. After a few twists and turns the real culprit is apprehended and Sagar gets to walk into the sunset with the little boy’s maasi (Sapna a.k.a. Neelam).

I have seen the Tamil, Malayalam as well as the Hindi versions, a very engrossing movie IMO.

Happy Birthday Govinda…

It can be seen from the table of 1988 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 43 songs in 21 movies released in 1988. So she made a recovery of sorts after singing the lowest number of songs in a year in 1987 (just 21).

7 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1988 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 36 songs from movies of 1988 that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs of one movie of 1998, namely “Libaas”(1988) have been covered. So 36 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 20 movies of 1988 are still available for discussion in the blog.

Alphabetically “Dharam Yudhh”(1988) is the first movie of 1988 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dharam Yudhh”(1988) was produced by Pawan Kumar (Secretary of Shatrughan Sinha) and directed by Sudarshan Nag for Amiya’s Bombay. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Shatrughan Sinha, Kimi Katkar, Aditya Pancholi, Suresh Oberoi, Saaniya, Sushma Sheth, Anjana Mumtaz, Ranjeet, Pran, Lalita Kumari(Sinha),Sunil Dhawan, Umesh Khanna, Rajesh Nigam, Prakash Johri, Anurag Sharma, Disco Shanti etc in it. This movie was a remake of Pakistani Punjaabi movie “Wadera”(1985).

“Dharam Yudhh”(1988) had six songs in it. It had one multiple version song which was sung by Lata Maneshkar. Here is that song. This bhai bahan song has two versions (happy and sad). Both are sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Kulwant Jani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The happy version is picturised on Saania aka Saniya and Shatrughan Sinha in happier times with Shatrughan Sinha hoping to perform bidaai of his sister. The sad version shows the sister lying dead and it is her arthi instead of doli that is being carried ! One can also see Sunil Dutt, Lalita Kumari Sinha and Kimmi Katkar in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

Music Composer – Uttam Singh – 02
——————————————–

We are discussing songs composed by Uttam Singh as music director. In the first post we discussed a song from the ‘1983’ movie ‘Painter Babu’ where music was composed by Uttam Singh with Jagdish Khanna.

Uttam Singh and Jagdish Khanna collaborated as music composers together in many movies. After ‘Painter Babu’, they collaborated in ‘Waaris-1988’. The songs of ‘Waaris’ became very popular and the sales of this movies’s music album created records.

Today we will listen to a song from this movie ‘Waaris-1988’.

‘Waaris-1988’ was directed by Ravinder Peepat for ‘G.G. Widescreen’. It was presented by Iqbal Singh Atwal and Amarjit Singh.

This movie was produced by Mrs. Swarn Yograj, Baldev Gill, and J.S. Cheema. It had Smita Patil, Raj Babbar, Amrita Singh, Raj Kiran, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and Amrish Puri.

This movie introduced Navneet Singh. Amrit Pal, Anjana Mumtaz and Pradeep Kumar made special appearances in this movie.

This movie was based on Punjab Novel ‘Kaare Haathi’ written by Sohan Singh Hans. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Baldev Gill. Editing of this movie was done by Subhash Sehgal. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.04.1988.

‘Warris-1988’ had nine songs in it (including one multiple version song). Vermal Malik, Qamar Jalalabadi and Sardar Panchhi were the lyricists for this movie. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Manmohan Singh and Mahendra Kapoor had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above music for this movie was composed by Uttam-Jagdish (Uttam Singh-Jagdish Khanna).

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Man Mohan Singh. On screen it is lip synced by Amrita Singh and Raj Babbar, respectively.

Today 23rd June 2021 is sixty-nineth birth anniversary of actor Raj Babbar. And on this occasion, we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

With today’s melodious song ‘Waaris-1988’ makes its debut on the blog.

‘Waaris-1988’ also joins with ‘Waaris-1954’ and ‘Waaris-1969’ on the blog. (Both ‘Waaris’ of 1954 and 1969 are already ‘Yippeeeed’ on the blog.)

Remembrance Day   —    Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal)

Today is the 23rd remembrance day of Laxmikant S. Kudalkar one half of the music composer duo fondly known as L-P.  They were the sole torch bearers by 1988, of the melodious music of the golden era of HFM.   Though RD Burman was still around, but doing very few films.  L-P it seems never took a breather, till the demise of  Laxmikant on 25.05.1998.  I personally don’t know of any instance where Pyarelal composed a film score alone.

Laxmikant–Pyarelal received won 7 awards and 15 nominations for best music direction in the Filmfare awards.

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

1965 Dosti
1968 Milan
1970 Jeene Ki Raah
1978 Amar Akbar Anthony
1979 Satyam Shivam Sundaram
1980 Sargam
1981 Karz

They have composed close to 3000 songs out of which 896 are posted.  So the tally is so close to 900 mark.   Today is actually Remembrance Day of Sunil Dutt also.  I could have easily found a song by L-P featuring Sunil Dutt to post, but I was reminded of this wonderful group song from ‘Tezaab’ in a video forward in the family group.

Belgaum city has been put under strict lock down for the extended weekend from Friday to Monday.  The video is maybe shot last year showing empty streets, markets and by-lanes of the city.  It was moving very fast, so I failed to recognise much of the blurred views. This song from ‘Tezaab’ 1988 was playing in the background, so I decided to do this song post.  I have always liked the song for the humming in the background, and night journey in the battered vehicle with a broken wind shield.  Chunky Pandey and his friends are singing this song.  While sad looking Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are trying to enjoy their antics.  Second stanza is filmed on these two with background singing by Alka Yagnik and Shabbir Kumar.  Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Chunky Pandey.

Peevesie’s Mom would have liked to post this as Chunky Pandey’s song, I suspect.  But I have it as a night song from ‘Tezaab’ by Nitin Mukesh.  That’s how I remembered it and had thought of including it in the ‘Chaandni Raatien’ series.  But since there is no moon visible here, nor it is mentioned in the song, so desisted.

The other day after reading Madhuri’s birthday post on 15th May, I remembered many songs.  Even started one post for a Madhuri song, but could not complete it.  That one is also a hit L-P score.  But for now, that song will have to wait.

For a five-minute song, this is having only 2 stanza’s.  So, I looked for audio version, thinking that it may have an extra stanza.  But there is no extra stanza in the audio version, which is slightly longer with repetition of mukhda.

So, let’s enjoy this hummable, slow, melodious, pensive, meaningful song, written by Javed Akhtar.

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

Blog Day :

4533 Post No. : 16095 Movie Count :

Today, December 14, 2020 is the 86th birthday of Dadasaheb Phalke Award winner and Padma Bhushan Shyam Benegal who was born on December 14, 1934 in Hyderabad. He set a bench-mark for Hindi film industry by successfully making parallel films. His films became inspirations for some Hindi film producer-directors to venture into the ‘middle of the road’ films (a cross between mainstream and parallel films).

From the childhood, Shyam Benegal was familiar with a movie camera as his father owned a 16mm movie camera to shoot some family events. Besides, he was also exposed to English, Hindi and South Indian films which he used to watch in a theatre in an army cantonment in Secundrabad where his father worked as a professional photographer. In one of his many interviews, he had admitted that in his childhood, he was a film junkie and would watch any type of films.

At the age of 12, Shyam Benegal made his first amateur film of about 10 minutes duration from his father’s movie camera covering the visits of his family friends and relatives in summer vacations and going with them for picnics etc. As he grew up, he had already made up his mind to become a film maker. The success of ‘Baazi’ (1951) made by his cousin, Guru Dutt inspired him to the extent that ‘if Guru Dutt could do it why not me’? But those days, there was not much opportunity to pursue film-making in Hyderabad.

In 1955, Shyam Benegal visited Kolkata and met his uncle who knew that he was interested in film-making. He advised him to first watch a Bangla film made by an unknown person who was a commercial artist and let him know his reaction. The film he watched was Satyajit Ray’s maiden film ‘Pather Panchali’ (1955). For the first time, Shyam Benegal felt that this film was quite different from what he had so far seen in the theatre which included films from Prabhat, New Theatres,Bombay Talkies, Mehboob Khan and even some English films. He took a decision that if at all he became a film maker, he would make films which would be different from the mainstream films and would have his stamp of film-making.

In 1959, after completion of M.A. in Economics from Osmania University, Shyam Benegal came to Mumbai in his pursuit to become a film maker. Much earlier, Guru Dutt had invited him to join him as Assistant Director. But he had declined the offer as he did not want to take that route to become a film-maker. After remaining unemployed for about 6 months, he got a job in an advertising agency as a copyrighter. Within a short period, he became its creative head. During his stints in advertising companies in 1959-66, he made over 900 advertising and documentary films.

The working in advertising and documentary films gave Shyam Benegal the ‘hands on’ experience of all the major departments of film-making. During 1966-73, Shyam Benegal taught at Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune.

During college days, Shyam Benegal had written a script based on what he had witnessed during Telangana Peasants Movement (1946-51). Having gain the experience of film making, he had decided to make a full-length feature film based on his script. For such type of a film, it was difficult to get a financier and more difficult to get a distributor even if the film was made. After many attempts, at last, he got a financier, Mohan Bijlani of Blaze Films for his first film. Blaze Films had distributed many of Shyam Benegal’s advertising films. The title of the film ‘Ankur’ (1974) was suggested by Anant Nag for whom it was his maiden Hindi film.

The success of ‘Ankur’ (1974) resulted in Shyam Bengal’s partnership with Blaze Films in some of his subsequent films like ‘Nishaant’ (1975), ‘Bhumika’ (1977) and ‘Mandi’ (1983). During 1979-81, Shyam Benegal got the opportunity to make ‘Junoon’ (1979) and ‘Kalyug’ (1981) with Shashi Kapoor who not only produced these films but also acted in them.

By 1983, Shyam Benegal had proved his credential as a successful parallel film maker. Almost all his feature films not only recovered the cost of production, but also made money in some films. Despite this, Shyam Benegal had somewhat lean period after “Mandi’ (1983). During this time, Shyam Benegal kept himself busy with directing TV serials – a 15-part ‘Yatra’ (1982) for Indian Railways and a 53-episode ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (1988) for Doordarshan which are regarded as Shyam Benegal’s classic T V serials.

Shyam Benegal was back to the films with his Muslim trilogy, ‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubeida’ (2001). He continues to make films of his choice which are different not only from the mainstream cinemas but also from his earlier films.

I had become aware of Shyam Benegal from his very first film ‘Ankur’ (1974) which I saw in the theatre after its release. Afterwards, I had no opportunity to see any of his subsequent films until I watched some of them in the digital era during the last 5-6 years. So, subsequent to ‘Ankur’ (1974), I always related his name with the Doordarshan serial, ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (1988) which I had watched almost all the episodes during its first telecast.

Before ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’, I had watched other serials shown on Doordarshan like, ‘Hum Log’ (1984), G P Sippy’s ‘Buniyaad’ (1986), Kundan Shah’s ‘Nukkad’ (1986). Ramanand Sagar’ ‘Ramayan’ (1987) etc. But, in my view, none of these could match ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (1988) in terms of grandeurs, technical excellence, performances of the actors, music and above all the brilliant filming of each episode by the director, Shyam Benegal. It was a monumental series encompassing the period from Indus Valley Civilisation to India’s independence. And this vast history and culture of India was to be covered in 53 episodes. I regard ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (1988) as the top classic Doordarshan serial of an epic proportion which is yet to be qualitatively matched by any of the subsequent T.V. serials.

Shyam Benegal had said after many years that it was his sheer madness that made him to undertake such a mammoth work as it involved a lot of research, coordination with the actors and crew members especially when some of them were also working in the films. Furthermore, it was a risky venture involving religious, political and social commentaries over a period of 5000 years of history. Fortunately for him, there was no interferences from Doordarshan, political parties, religious and social organisations during the making as well as during its telecast. After the completion of the shootings, he was glad that he took upon himself this project giving him a great satisfaction and an experience of life time.

The genesis of making ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ for Doordarshan as revealed by Shyam Benegal in a Doordarshan interview goes back to the year 1985 when Doordarshan had already commissioned the serials ‘Ramayan’ (1987) and ‘Mahabharat’ (1988). Once these two religious serials were ready for telecast, they wanted to commission another serial on India’s history and culture for which Shyam Benegal was invited for discussion. He was already in the making of a serial ‘Yatra’ (1986) for Indian Railways to be telecast on Doordarshan.

During the school days, one of the relatives of Shyam Benegal had gifted him a book ‘Discovery of India’ (1944), written by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru while he was in Ahmednagar jail during 1942-46 following his participation in ‘Quit India’ movement in 1942. Shyam Benegal had read this book many times as he grew from boy into his adulthood. He was enamored by the history and diverse culture of India as enumerated in the book. He discussed this subject with the Doordarshan authorities and they approved the subject.

By early 1986, Shayam Benegal started the preliminary work on the T.V. serial for writing the script of ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ with a team of 10 writers which included himself, Shama Zaidi, Vasant Deo, Ashok Mishra among others and 22 eminent historians, each with their specialised fields. Simultaneously, he sent his Art Director and the Production Designer with a team of assistants to Archaeological Survey of India’s Office at New Delhi to research on the relevant periods of artifacts, costumes etc. After spending about 8 months in Delhi and other places all over India, they submitted their works.

After the script, screen-play and dialogues were completed, the shooting started in early 1988 which continued for the next 18 months. A major part of the shooting of all the 53 episodes was done at the Film City, Goregaon where as many as 144 sets were erected during the period of 18 months. Some shootings were also done at few historical locations in some parts of India and the shooting in the open ground and forests in the Western Ghats. Over 500 actors mostly drawn from FTII. National School of Drama and other film training institutes were involved in the shooting. Some of the prominent actors included Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Roshan Seth, K K Raina, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Pallavi Joshi, Aloknath, Pankaj Berry, Ila Arun, Irfan Khan, Vijay Kashyap, Anjaan Srivastav, Mita Vashisht, Tom Alter, Jalal Agha, Urmila Bhatt, Surendra Pal and many more. Some of them had done multiples roles in the serial.

I have given all these details of the serial just to get the readers the enormity of the project which was a herculean task for Shyam Benegal to manage. The end result was that ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ was as popular in terms of viewership as ‘Buniyaad’ and ‘Mahabharat’ according to Doordarshan. Another end result of this serial as Vanraj Bhatia said in a lighter vein was that after the end of 18 months of shooting, Shyam Benegal looked much older than his age.

On the occasion of Shyam Benegal’s 86th birthday, we wish him a happy birth day and pray for his good health and an active life as a film-maker. He has said in an interview a couple of years ago that film-making will remain his passion at any age as long as he is active.

On the occasion of Shyam Benegal’s 86th birthday, I felt that I should select one of many songs from his extravagant T.V. serial, ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ (1988) which he considers to be the toughest assignment he had undertaken so far. Only a couple of songs from this serial have been uploaded on a video sharing platform of which I have selected a Sufi ghazal, ‘zihaal-e-miskeen makun taghaaful’ in Episode-27. This Amir Khusrou’s ghazal is sung in qawwali stayle by Murlidhar who is a singer-actor in Nepali film industry. He is one of the deciples of Pandit Jasraj. I have seen him in an interview on one of the Nepali T.V. Channels and I feel that qawwali may have been picturised on him as well. Vanraj Bhatia is the music director assisted by Kersi Lord and Ashok Patki.

In the serial, the qawwali is preceded by a devotional song of Sant Tukaram. Both the song and the qawwali are reflections of the influences of thoughts and culture of Hindus on Muslims and vice versa during the start of the Bhakti Movement in North India.

One of the main features of the ghazal is that the lines in the first couplet is written half in Persian and other half in Brij Bhasha. Thereafter in rest of the two couplets, the first line is in Persian and the second line in Brij Bhasha.

The actual ghazal has been written as under:

zihaal-e-miskeen makun taghaaful duraaye naina banaaye batiyaan
ki taab-e-hijraan nadaaram-e-jaan na lehu kaaye lagaaye chatiyaan

shabaan-e-hijraan daraaz choon zulf wa rooz-e-waslat choo umr kotah
sakhi piya ko jo main na dekhoon to kaise kaatoon andheri ratiyaan

ba-haqq-e-aan mah ki roz-e-mahshar ba-daad maara fareb ‘Khusro’
sapit mann ke duraaye rakhoon jo jaaye paaun piya ki khatiyaan

The English translation of the ghazal is on the video clip.

There are two more she’rs in the ghazal which have not been included in the qawwali. The omitted two she’rs are as under:

yakayak az dil do chashm jaadoo ba-sad-farebam ba-burd taskeen
kise padi hai jo jaa sunaave piyaare pee ko hamaari batiyaan

choon sham-e-sozaan choon zarra hairaan mehr-e-aan-mah bagashtam aakhir
na neend nainaan na ang chainaan na aap aave na bheje patiyaan

Recently, I came across on internet an offer for sale of an used Extended Play (EP) record of the songs of ‘Aaj Raat Ko’, the film which I had never heard of. The EP was released in 1975 by Polydor India Ltd which had 4 songs – 2 songs on each side. All the songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which were set to music by R D Burman. On checking these songs on one of the video sharing platforms, I found that all the 4 songs were uploaded in audio format. The songs were in the typical mould of R D Burman’s compositions. In one of the audio clips, a record-cover photograph was displayed with a couple of scenes from the film showing Saira Bano, Sujit Kumar and Vinod Mehra. I could not locate the full film on-line.

The description given by the uploader of the audio clip revealed that the film, ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ remained unreleased for reasons unknown. Probably, one of the reasons could be the sudden departure of Vinod Khanna who was one of the main actors in the film, to join Rajneesh in the USA. The film was revived when Vinod Khanna returned from USA in 1985. It got Censor Board certificated on January 25, 1988 under a new title ‘Faisla’ (1988). According to a comment recorded by the son of the producer of the film on the video clip of one of the songs, his father, the producer suffered huge losses due to unprofessional behaviour of some actors and the film was delayed by 13 years. According to him, this film never got released in theaters and was ultimately sold to distributors for paltry sums. The film was released on satellite television.

‘Faisla’ (1988) is now available for watching on one of the video sharing platforms but the print is so bad that images look blurred. There is loss of continuity in some places as a result of which the story in the film looks disjointed. The songs in the film are muted probably on copyright ground.

‘Faisla’(1988) was produced under the banner of Noor Jahan Films and was directed by S Ramanathan. It was a multi-cast film with Ashok Kumar, Saira Bano, Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Mehmood, Sujeet Kumar, Chandrashekhar, Ranjeet, Gajanan Jagirdar, and Bindu forming the main star cast. It is a typical Bollywood film catering to the expectations of the type of film audience who loves masala films having action, dance and comedy, villain etc. As usual, in such type of film, the story ends with victory over the evils.

All the 4 songs which were in the original film ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975, UR) have been retained in ‘Faisla’ (1988). I am presenting the first song ‘champa khili daar palak jhoole pyaar’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by Mohammed Rafi and picturised on Vinod Mehra. Saira Bano is also present in the song sequence. Fortunately, video clip of the song is available in which the song starts with humming and two lines of the song rendered by Asha Bhosle who sings for Saira Bano. The audio clip does not have the humming by Asha Bhosle and is also shorter in terms of duration than the video clip as there is no repetition of lines of antaras. While the audios of the songs have been released under the original title. ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975), the video clip of the song has been taken from ‘Faisla’ (1988).

One can make out from the voice of Mohammed Rafi that song was recorded sometime in early 1970s. During the same period, Mohammed Rafi in combination with Majrooh Sultanpuri and R D Burman had also rendered songs of the same mood, like ‘goriya kahaan tera desh re’ (Caravan, 1971) and ‘gori ke haath mein jaise ye chella’ (Mela, 1971).

With this song, ‘Aaj Raat Ko’ (1975, UR)/Faisala (1988) makes its debut on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

This is a post to wish Suyash Pandey on his 58th birthday (DoB 25 September 1962). His mother was a physician and a personal dietitian to Rekha in the ’80s. His father was in the team of surgeons who performed the first ever heart transplant in India at Mumbai’s KEM Hospital in the 70s. Suyash Pandey’s daughter is also in movies and she made her debut in 2019.

I am talking of the smart, tall and lively actor who is popular as Chunky Pandey (his daughter is Ananya Pandey). He made his debut in 1987 in the Shibu Mitra directed multi-starrer “Aag Hi Aag” playing Moushumi Chatterjee and Dharmendra’s son. That movie was produced by Pahlaj Nihalani. Neelam Kothari was his love-interest in that movie. Chunky’s “Paap Ki Duniya” (1988) was his second with producer Nihalani and director Shibu Mitra. This was also a multi-starrer. It also had Neelam as the female lead. Only difference was, here Neelam was in love with Sunny Deol’s character.

I remember seeing the movie at the time of its release, of course with my all-time moving-seeing companion ‘my dad’. After sitting through the movie, which he enjoyed thoroughly, he said that the story is same as Raj Kapoor’s “Awaara”. That is, the son of an honest cop (Pran) is kidnapped by a notorious criminal (Danny), and is brought up to be a professional thief and criminal (Sunny Deol). The movie has enough twists and turns because of which the criminal’s son (Chunky) is brought up by the cop and he becomes a cop, hot on the heels of the criminals Danny and Sunny. And then everyone finds out their blood-relatives and we have a happy ‘the end’ and Inspector Vijay (Chunky) is happy to see Ashok alias Suraj (Sunny) marrying Aarthi (Neelam).

Chunky is one actor who was mostly seen in multi-starrers and was nominated for the best supporting actor award for his role in “Tezaab”, where he played Anil Kapoor’s friend Baban, who helps Anil (Munna) find Mohini (Madhuri) when Lotiya Pathan (Kiran Kumar) kidnaps her.
But IMHO he was best, playing comic characters – his “Aankhen” with Govinda is the best case to prove my point. Of course, his career took a slight beating when the Khan’s appeared on the Bollywood firmament but he has managed to find a footing in movies of the new millennium and is seen doing varied characters which are not necessarily comedy or romantic and also not the typical character actor type roles.
He was a decent dancer and today’s song is proof of that. It is from “Paap Ki Duniya” which is written by Anjaan and Bappi Lahiri is the music director. S. Janaki and Kishore Kumar are the playback. The song was decently popular in those days when the movie released and is based on some Marathi folk song. I also feel that there may be a Marathi original to this song.

As I was seeing the video (after years) a few things struck me:-
(1) the Marathi saris that Neelam wears are the same colors as the dresses preceding them.
(2) Bappi Lahiri had a field day composing the interlude music which has both western and folk beats.
(3) The choreographer must have enjoyed composing the dance as both the artists were decent dancers. By the way, this song was Inspector Vijay’s fantasy.
A very Happy Birthday to Chunky who has a knack of cracking up at jokes of which he is often the target.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from a movie that released 32 years ago. This movie and song were instrumental in catapulting our today’s birthday girl into the big-league.

She had made her debut in Bollywood in 1984 through a Rajshri Productions movie which had a story similar to the Jaya Bhaduri starrer “Uphaar” of the 70s. Then followed a string of movies; which were not so successful; where she was an “also there” or what is generally termed as a glamour doll. Even 1988 saw her in four movies three of which were commercial failures. So we can term her start to be something like what the Big B experienced in the 70s.

But her fourth release of 1988 (release date 11 November) made her an overnight star along with re-affirming Anil Kapoor’s standing in the industry.

So today’s song is from N.Chandra’s “Tezaab” and with this we are wishing our “Mohini” a.k.a Madhuri Dixit (Nene got added to her name after marriage to Dr. Nene in 1999). Madhuri played a unfortunate, kindhearted and gentle girl who is forced to dance by her father so that his drunken ways are financed. She looked the role of a meek, frail girl but danced brilliantly.

Most Madhuri’s subsequent movies had atleast one great dance number. Who can forget “humko aaj kal hain intezaar”; “mera piya ghar aaya o ramji”; “Tamma tamma loge”; “dhak dhak karne laga” and the cream of them all “choli ke peeche kya hain” to name the most popular ones (there are many more) As I write this I find all the songs that I have mentioned here are yet to make their appearance on the blog except for the song from Khalnayak “choli ke peeche”.

She made an excellent pair with whoever she was cast opposite but the pairing with Anil Kapoor was a different class altogether. They did 18 films together including the 2018 release “Total Dhamaal”. There is a strange camaraderie between the two actors which is evident in any scene that they enact.

She must be among the few actress who have acted with pairs of father and son- Rishi and Ranbir Kapoor, Vinod and Akshaye Khanna for example.
Today’s song has a female and male version. Female playback -Alka Yagnik and male – Amit Kumar. The songs were written by Javed Akhtar and Laxmi-Pyare were the composers.

The male version is shot on the streets of Mumbai and we can see the steps of the famous Asiatic Library; also Akbarally’s which was one of the first departmental store of Mumbai (have done shopping there a few times when the kids were small.)

The Female version is a stage song which ends when a group of bandits or thugs led by Kiran Kumar, invade the scene with the intention to corner Anupam Kher (who played the drunkard father of Mohini). They leave carrying Mohini with them when they cannot find Anupam Kher.

So here is wishing the ever so beautiful brilliant dancer and of a million-bucks smile a long and healthy life and success in all her future ventures too. She still has a lot of time before she calls it a day. She is still very young.

ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah baarah terah
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah

tera karoon,
tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar
aaja piya aayi bahaar
tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar
aaja piya aayi bahaar
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah baarah terah
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah

chaudah ko tera sandesa aaya
chaudah ko tera sandesa aaya,
pandrah ko aaoonga ye kehlaaya
chaudah ko aaya na pandrah ko tu,
tadpaake mujhko toone kya paaya
solah ko bhi
solah ko bhi solah kiye thhe singaar,
aaja piya aayi bahaar
tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar,
aaja piya aayi bahaar
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah

satrah ko samjhi sang chhoot gaya
athharah ko dil toot gaya
ro ro guzaaraa maine saaraa unnees
bees ko dil ke tukde hue bees
phir bhi nahin
phir bhi nahin dil se gaya tera pyaar,
aaja piya aayi bahaar
tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar,
aaja piya aaye bahaar
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah

ikkees beeti,
baayees gayi,
teyees guzari, chaubees gai
pachchees chhabees ne maara mujhe
birha ki chakki mein main pis gayi
din bas
din bas maheene ke hain aur chaar
aaja piya aayi bahaar
tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar,
aaja piya aaye bahaar
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah

din bane hafte re,
hafte maheene,
mahine ban gaye saal
aake zara tu dekh to le
kya hua hai mera haal
deewaani dar dar main phirti hoon
main jeeti hoon naa main marti hoon
tanhaayi ki raaten sehti hoon
aaja aaja
aaja aaja aaja
aaja ke din ginnti rehti hoon
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyaarah baarah terah
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah

tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar,
aaja piya aaye bahaar
tera karoon din gin gin ke intezaar,
aaja piya aaye bahaar
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhai saat aath nau,
dus gyarah barah terah
ek do teen,
chaar paanch chhe saat aath nau,
dus gyaarah baarah terah
