#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 79 # Remembering Director Tapan Sinha – His movies #
——————————————————————————————————————–

In our film industry we have many personalities who have left indelible mark of their craftsmanship and genius through their contribution to the Indian film Industry.

Some of them achieved this in spite of producing or directing very few films. Such few personalities have immortalized themselves in the history of Indian Cinema through their works.

Today we pay our tributes to one such personality – one of the most prominent directors Shri.Tapan Sinha. He can be considered to be in the leagues of Shri.Satyajit Ray, Shri.Mrinal Sen, and Shri.Ritwik Ghatak. He was conferred with the highest honors for films the ‘Dadasaheb Phalke’ award in 2006.

Today 15th January 2019 is the tenth ‘Remembrance Day’ of Tapan Sinha (02.10.1924 – 15.01.2009).

The ‘nuances of life reality’ in his works and the ‘greatness of his efforts’ behind the presentations on ‘screen’ as we get to watch, cannot be detailed in one article here.

To put in short about him, I am reproducing below the text mentioned in the blurb on the jacket of the VCD (of film ‘Safed Haathi -1977).

“He is arguably the most uncompromising film maker outside the orbit of parallel cinema. And his awe-inspiring body of work can possibly be matched by only a – Mrinal Sen or a Satyajit Ray. He is the grand old man of cinema– Tapan Sinha.

His filmography presents an amazing variety of subjects. Even when the Director has profusely entertained the audience, he has done it every time, with a new yarn promising new experiences for the filmgoers. And these have not been ordinary crowd-pleasers nor have they seemed mired in familiar formulas. A veritable commander of the box-office, Tapan Sinha has offered many super hit films in succession – namely- ‘Hatey Bazaare’, ‘Aapnjan’, ‘Ekhani’, ‘Safed Haathi’ etc creating a record that is unsurpassed even today.

Yet in each of these films, adapted faithfully from widely read literary works and neatly told, a serious observer may discover the creative burst that raises a popular work to an artistic level. This nonchalant mastery of spinning pleasurable surprises right on the screen has been discernible in all his films, even including his work containing raw realities of life like ‘Apanjan’ or ‘Raja’.

His major works have been in Bangla films and in Hindi he has produced/directed – ‘Zindagi-Zindagi-1972’, ‘Sagina-1974’, ‘Safed Haathi-1977’, ‘Aadmi aur Aurat-1982’ and ‘Aaj Ka Robinhood-1987’, and the last one ‘Anokha Moti-2000’.
(Ref wiki page on Tapan Sinha)

Out of the above movies I remember to have watched ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut’ and ‘Safed Haathi’ on ‘doordarshan’.
On our blog we have already covered all songs from the film ‘Sagina-1974’ and ‘Zindagi-Zindagi-1972’.

Today we introduce a song from the film ‘Safed Haathi-1976’ which was directed by Tapan Sinha, and this movie ‘Safed Haathi-1976’ make its debut on the blog today.

‘Safed Haathi-1977’ (alias ‘White Elephant’) was directed by Tapan Sinha. It was a ‘Neelkamal Movies, Calcutta’ presentation.
It was produced by R.A. Jalan and Pratap Agarwal.

Subodh Roy was the editor of this movie. Its dialogues were written by Hridayesh Pandey.
Tapan Sinha who directed this movie had also written the story and screenplay of this movie.

The film had Shatrughan Sinha (in special appearance), Vijay Arora, Sadhu Mehar, Mala Jaggi, Gayatri, Kalyan Chatterjee, Bhaskar Choudhary, Vishwa Guha Thakurta, Reena Barua and Utpal Dutt as its cast. Child artist Ashwani makes a debut in this movie.

Music of this film was composed by Ravindra Jain who also wrote the lyrics of the four songs in this film. Yesudas, Hemlata, Ravindra Jain, Nirmala Mishra gave their voices to the songs in this film.

This movie was passed by Censor board on 18.10.1977.

(While giving the details of this movie HFGK Vol-V makes a note that from the ‘booklet’ of this movie it comes to light that it was earlier titled as ‘Puraskar’ (The Prize))

As mentioned above, I had watched this movie earlier on ‘Doordarshan’ (may be sometime around 1991-92) and I remember how thrilled I was then and I always like to watch movies that have some ‘message’ in it and watching a movie which has ‘elephant’ as a ‘central character’ always fascinates me.
In this movie too watching ‘Airaavat’ or the ‘white elephant’ whenever he appears on the screen is very very interesting and touching.

So, few years back I had bought the VCD of this movie so that I can watch it again with my family at home. I always thought that such movies should be watched by all irrespective of what our age is.

I would not like to discuss more on the story of this movie since I wish that one should watch this movie and enjoy its thrill, its message and its learning. Review of this movie is available at ‘Memsaab Story’ too.

This movie was awarded National Film Award for Best Children’s Film in 1978.
It also got a ‘Special Jury Award’ in the Sixth Competitive Festival “The Child in Our Time” 1983 in Mifed, Milan, Italy.
It participated in several prestigious International film festivals where it received high acclaim and was well appreciated for its contemporary theme, preservation of flora and fauna and emphasis on qualities of chivalry, adventure and integrity of character in children.

Today we get introduced ourselves to this first song of the movie on our blog which is sung by Yesudas and written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song from this movie ‘Safed Haathi’ and pay our tributes to Late Shri.Tapan Sinha ji on the blog here today …

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 6 # Yesudas #
———————————————–———————————–——————

I recall listening to a song frequently on radio when I was around seventh or eight years old. The voice was very attractive and it had something special which captivated my young mind then.
There was one Mr. Abu who held from Kerala and was my Father’s friend (may be because of their drinking habits 🙂 residing in the same colony). He used to praise this new Singer a lot and liked his songs very much. My Father had even started learning ‘Malayalam’ from him and he had started learning how to write ‘Malayalam’ words too 🙂 in register.

As years passed and we were getting more and more memorable songs from this Singer though the quantity was not that much as compared to the other established singers in HFM.

Still, the songs coming from his voice were gaining popularity as well as it were creating a special place in the hearts of people, as the movies he was singing in were also coming from directors from special genre who were making off-beat movies then in the era already dominated by multi-starrer movies.

Nevertheless, the songs were adding to the list of ‘all time memorable songs’ and ‘nostalgia’ for peoples like me …

Today this singer turns to seventy-nine. He was born on in kerala.

I will not go into his biography in details because it has been covered in two of earlier posts on the blog.

Instead I will give below the name of the movies he sings in from 1971 since his debut in an ‘un-released’ Hindi movie, but compiled up to 1980 only, since I have the Geet Kosh for this period available with me.

Though our today’s Singer keep singing till recently in Hindi movies. But if we come to his statistics Hindi movies, we will not be able to judge his extra-ordinary talent and the ‘divine’ presence he has left by singing nearly fifty thousand songs in many national and international languages in his career spanning fifty years!!

He has been honoured with many national awards in singing as well as been conferred upon with our national civilian awards too and the list of awards is so BIG that one can only imagine his extra ordinary contribution to music as well as the society in turn…

I think, one who has grown up in the years of seventies can never ever forget this voice and those beautiful lovely songs …

Let us now start my journey through his songs …

Or let me remind you of this non-filmy song first … ‘teesta nadi si tu chanchalaa, main bhi hoon bachpan se manchalaa’

Our today’s singer is the male voice in this song (though the other voice i.e. the female voice too is ‘nostalgic’ for me … 

‘Gori teraa gaaon badaa pyaara’ – it was ruling the charts in 1976 and even after forty two years it is the same, even the new generation likes it when they get to listened to it..
But my favorite at that time was the other one from the same movie ‘Aaj se pehle ae aaj se jyadaa’ .

‘Jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan’ from ‘Chhotisi Baat-1975’ had already stolen people’s hearts and their eyes open to read and learn more about this male voice in this song …

Two years later he was in a rebellious still melodious mood when he sings ‘Kitaabon mein chhaptein hain chaahat ke kisse’

Then who will ever forget ‘sunayna sunayna’ .

The same year he was praising his beloved with ‘chaand jaise mukhde pe’.

However, the one close to my heart and growing every time for all these years is ‘tere bina soona more man ka mandir aa re aa re aa’

A year before in 1978 his ‘dil ke tukde tukde kar ke muskuraa ke chal diye’, was also keep us mesmerised (but I was not liking much then, till I became a fully grown up adult 🙂 )

And as the years passed this list also keep adding on and on …

‘ka karu sajni ee’
‘kahaan se aaye badraa’
‘madhuban Khushboo deta hai’
‘maana ho tum behad haseen’

From the early eighties I like;

‘beeti huyi raat ki sunaati hai kahaani’

‘dheere dheere subah huyi’

I can keep listing many many of his favourites of mine but I have to stop …
And as I was browsing his filmography, I was reminded of this lovely number … just to refresh the memories of yours too;

‘jeewan path pe ek rath ke do pahiye ban chalte jaayen’

I cannot stop without mentioning these two;

‘Shyaam rang ranga re’
And
‘Shadaj ne paaya ye vardaan’

(in HFGK Vol V I could not find the name of this UR movie ‘Tansen’ or maybe I have missed it…)

Then I remember I had specially brought his ‘non-filmy’ album ‘Sitaaron mein tu hi’ in 2000-2001 (when I was in Bareilly. I do not have cassette with me to mention more about it here)

But I have to stop here and presenting this article in this series a little differently I will leave you with the list of movies he sung from 1971 to 1980;

(** details not available about number of songs of each Singer)

Other than this he has sung in many languages (national and international) and that way the ‘madhuban’ of his ‘gaayaki’ will always be remain blossomed all over and let the ‘Madhuban’ of his songs and those unforgettable memories be with us forever till we are here and for the coming generations too- unki gaayki ka ye Madhur-sumadhur-mehakta huaa madhuban hamesha geeton se chhalakta rahega’

Kattassery Joseph Yesudas” or Yesudas as we fondly know him …
(born on 10th January’ 1940)

Bas naam hi kaafi hai!!! Is naam ke ‘parimandal’ mein hi ‘swarg’ hai …

“Pyaare panchhi baahon mein
Gaati koyal raahon mein
Dharti pe yahi to khushi hai
Apni duniya mein aansoo bhi nahin hai”

***

‘Safed Jhoothh’ was directed by Basu Chatterjee for ‘Matrichhaaya, Bombay’. (this was the first movie by ‘Matrichhaaya’). Basu Chatterjee also wrote the Screenplay and dialogues of this movie.
It was presented by Raj Rajpal. It was produced by Asim Kumar.

It had Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Mitthu Mukherji, Deven Verma, Vidya Sinha, Manik Dutt, Abu Shivani, Amol Sen, Khalid Roy, Devraj Sinha, Prabir Roy, Somnath Pardesi, Pradeep Mukherji, Milan Mukherji, Vinay Chhibbar, Arup Ganguly, Umesh Kaalbag and many others.

This movie introduced new discovery Renuka.
Pradeep Kumar and Amol Palekar makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Samresh Basu. Editing of this movie was done by V.N. Mayekar.

Music of this film was composed by Shyamal Mitra. And all the four songs in this movie were penned by lyricist Yogesh.
Asha Bhonsle, Shyamal Mitra and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Yesudas and the movie ‘Safed Jhoothh’ is making a debut on this blog with this lovely song …

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1977.

Let us enjoy this song wishing Yesudas ji a very very happy birthday (albeit a day later) and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Lyrics for this song were sent by Peevesie’s Mom ji and I remember many times in her comments she mentions that ‘how the die-hard fans’ can forget an anniversary of their beloved actor/actress or Singer, so … yes Yesudas fans can never forget this nostalgic gem 😊

Thank you, Peevesie’s Mom ji!!!

Going by the association of Yesudas with the movies of Basu Chatterjee, I think, this song perfectly fits for this presentation here …

(And I must thank both of our editors who patiently waited for my sending of this article to them. It took time for me to compile the filmography going through each page of HFGK except the appendices and corrigendum. I cannot claim that the list given by me is exhaustive and corrections/suggestions are most welcome.

‘Zid na karo’ aisa khayaal to aaya, but since I had planned that for this article on Yesudas ji I will at least try to give the filmography of his songs from 1971 to 1980, so I have tried my best…)

(note – I have noted the lyrics as per the movie version + audio version)

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie’s Mom)

Neele ambar ke taley ae

Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Har ghadi din rainaa aa aa
Chain ab aaye naa
Man kahe mera saathi ee ee
Ab kahin jaaye naa
Ye milan mein khoyi
Ab naa shaam dhaley ae ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
do yahaan saathhi miley
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Zindagi mein aise ae ae ae
Din kabhi aate hain
Rasmon ke bandhan mein ae ae
Meet bandh jaate hain
Phir mehak uthhte hain
Tan ke phool khile ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from a film called ‘College Girl’ from 1978.  It is produced by Shantilal Soni and directed by SD Narang. The star cast includes Sachin, Bindiya Goswami, Rita Bhadhuri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Urmilla Bhatt, Paintal, Bhagwan, Heena Kausar, Sudhir, Shobhana Shah, Jagdish Raj, Karan Diwan, Chand Usmani amongst others.

The film has seven songs of which the most famous is “Pyar Manga Hai Tumhi Se Na Inkaar Karo” which is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Indeevar. This is already posted on our blog. Another song by Mohd. Rafi “Phoolon Ki Tarah Wo Hansti Thi” which is penned by Dev Kohli has also been posted. And I agree with Atul ji, as he has written in that post – If Bappi Lahiri’s songs like this did not get popular then one should not blame him for later on composing songs of the nature that required less creativity but yielded rich dividends for him.”

Now here is the third song from the movie. This is another surprise from Bappi Lahiri. First, it is a bhajan and he has Bharat Vyas (!!!) as the lyricist. Ok it is in Yesudas’s voice, not surprising as Yesudas has sung for Bappi Lahiri in ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ and ‘Haisiyat’. But when I came across this song the surprises didn’t end. The song is lip-synced by Dr. Shriram Lagoo. I can think of only one or two other movies where Shriram Lagoo has had songs to lip sync – one in ‘Dooriyan – “Khota Paisa Nahin Chalega” (playback by KN Sharma) and the other in ‘Kinaara’ – “Meethe Bol Boley Boley Paayaliya“(playback by Bhupinder).

The bhajan starts at the home and then the family proceeds to a temple which reminds me of a temple attached to an ashram in Mumbai’s Vile Parle area, which I have frequented a number of times before marriage. It was a very peaceful place with lot of space for us children to run about. Going by what we see in the song it looks like Bindiya is sad about something as her eyes are constantly moist and Rita Bhadhuri looks like the more playful of the two sisters. Chandrani Mukherjee’s is the female voice in this song.

Yesterday, 10th January was Yesudas’ birthday. He turned 77. He is a maestro of classical music and is a huge fan of his guru Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar, Dr. M Balamurali Krishna and Mohd Rafi. Having started his playback career in the 60s in Malayalam followed by the other South Indian languages his Hindi debut came in 1971; though the first movie that released with a song sung by him is ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ in 1976 followed by ‘Chitchor’. He then went on to sing for many Bollywood movies. He has been awarded the Padmashri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has won the national award seven times for best playback singing. He has sung in almost all Indian languages except Konkani, Assamese and Kashmiri. Just as the “Venkateswara Suprabhatam”, the good morning shloka played at Balaji temple in Tirupathi, is associated with MS Subbalakshmi, “Harivarasanam” – the good night shloka played at Ayyappa Temple in Sabarimala – is in the voice of KJ Yesudas.

Wishing a belated happy birthday to the ‘Gana Gandharva Dasettan’, as the Malayalees love to address him, alias Yesudas.

Lyrics

nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali hooo
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
tu ne humko janam diya hai
tu hi paalan haar
teri daya se phoole phale
hum sab ka ghar sansaar
nahi chahiye heere moti. . .
nahi chahiye heere moti
na ratnon ki khaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
kisi ke aage hath na phailaayen. . .
apni mehnat ka sukh paaye
itna de vardaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali ho
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13900

Exactly one month and a day – from the time that we hit the last century milestone. The 13800th song had come on to the blog on 10th Dec. And today, 10th Jan, we arrive at the 13900th station of this musical journey. Many congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. We are into another year now, and folks keeping tabs will agree, the pace of postings, and pace of participations has really picked up in the past 10 days. Or to put a positive twist – in the first 10 days of the year. The mind goes back to the whatsapp message on the group – that new year resolutions are but a matter of interest for about a week into the new year. After that, the crowds on the morning walk are back to the thin normal expected for those early hours of the day. 🙂

But so far, so good – the going has been good in these ten days. And quite truthfully, as of now, we have ready posts from many contributors waiting in the wings to come on board. The limitations are at times either just a specific anniversary or a milestone must be covered, or that a debut and a yippeee song must be part of the day’s menu. On all these counts, we seem to be doing really well so far. But, oh then, it is just 10th Jan as yet. Maybe we will create a new record of determined sustenance this year. Or then, maybe we won’t. Time, as they always say, will tell. 🙂

Welcome all to the 13900th पड़ाव on this long and interesting journey of Hindi film music. On this, 3643rd day of the existence of this blog. For such significant milestones, we conventionally attempt to bring together important milestones for artists or anniversaries of artists. Today, the 10th Jan, is the birth anniversary of two living luminaries of the Hindi film industry.

First we have Basu Chattejee, who turns 87 today. Basu Chatterjee, a name that is synonymous with what is termed as the middle-of-the-road genre of Hindi films. Films that are not big star high budget bonanzas of formulaic composition, and neither they are at the extreme end of the avant-garde. If you think of ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) and ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), then that is the genre termed as middle-of-the-road. I remember those were the school days, and it was films like this that none in the family had any objections for us kids to go and watch with friends. For almost a decade, Basu Da’s films were a routine. If it is directed by him, then it is a must watch film.

I have seen almost all of his films as they appeared, during my student years, first school and then college. I was not very familiar with Basu Da as a personality. But his films carried / still carry such an enchanting charisma of natural flow, natural performances, and stories that are closer to real life, but are close in a very endearing sense. The romanticism is nurtured in very natural surroundings. The lead actors are seen waiting at public bus stops, and eating at known regular restaurants. The characters appear to be closer to life – vulnerable, defeat-able, more real than the ‘macho’ heroes of the mainline cinema. The humor is simple, expressed in everyday language. And the story lines – quite natural and rarely getting overdramatic.

That was the cinematic diet that challenged the supremacy of the mainline big budget cinema. Yes, there were other companions of Basu Da on this journey, who share the same penchant for clean and happy entertainment. Of course, Basu Da stands out as the one who has given us wonderful hits year after year, for almost a decade. A quiet sampler of his films from his first decade – ‘Baton Baton Mein’ (1979), ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ (1979), ‘Dillagi’ (1978), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Swami’ (1977), ‘Safed Jhoot’ (1977), ‘Priyatma’ (1977), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1976), ‘Chitchor’ (1976), ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), ‘Us Paar’ (1974), ‘Piya Ka Ghar’ (1972), ‘Sara Akash’ (1969). And of course the list does not end here. It continues well into the early 2000s, albeit that it then gets mixed with mainline, big stars films also.

Each of the films listed above merits an individual write up, in as of itself. Many would remember the songless ‘Sara Akash’ – a tale of a newly wed couple and their tribulations of adjusting with each other and with the families. Ascending forward from this, Basu Da has given us delightful fare to watch year in and year out. A dear salute to this master of the understatement of the middle-of-the-road cinema.

The second birthday we celebrate today is Yesudas. At 77 today, exactly 10 years younger to Basu Da, this young man is the owner of that home grown sound of singing that has adorned many a films by Basu Da. We frequently see his presence in Basu Da’s films, starting with ‘Chit Chor’ and ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ both in 1976, almost becoming the ghost voice of Amol Palekar for many of his films. Although he recorded his first song for Hindi cinema in 1971, for the unreleased film ‘Jai Jawaan Jai Kisan’, the first released films for him were the two mentioned, in 1976.

Born in 1940 in Cochin, Yesudas started his singing career with Malayalam films in 1961. He made a siginificant contribution to the films in south Indian regional cinemas, before heading north to Hindi cinema in early 1970s. His debut in the popular Hindi cinema with Basu Da’s films quickly earned him an important recognition as a playback singer of significant merit.

Yesudas has been honored seven times as the Best Playback Singer at the National Awards. About him, music director Ravindra Jain has said that if he ever regains his vision, the first person he wants to see is Yesudas.

Today’s song brings together these two luminaries. The film ‘Apne Paraaye’  (1980) is directed by Basu Da. In the film, Yesudas is the playback voice for Amol Palekar, yet once again. The song is a duet with Asha Bhosle, and on screen this is performed by Amol Palekar and Shabana Azmi.

Ed Note: Our dear Pratap ji has added this information. The story of this film is based on the novel titled ‘Nishkriti’ written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. ‘Nishkriti’ means ‘chhutkaara’.
Ed Note: Dear Arun ji has further added that this novel is the last work of Sharat Chandra, and also his shortest novel. Further, the more appropriate flavor of the meaning of the word ‘Nishkirti’ is ‘deliverance’ or ‘setting free’.

In the story line, the couple and their two children have fallen on hard times, due to machinations and misunderstanding within a family of brothers. Utpal Dutt and Girish Karnad are brothers, both lawyers. Amol Palekar is their younger cousin, who stays in the same household. The envy between the wives of Amol Palekar and Girish Karnad forces Amol to leave the household and go to live in the village home of the family. The misunderstandings between the families reach a high pitch with legal action being initiated by Girish Karnad, at the behest of his wife, against Amol. Eventually, the eldest brother, Utpal Dutt, steps in, to iron out the problems. The family is reunited, with the caveat that Girish Karnad and his wife leave the household and move to another city.

The song is placed in the time when Amol and his family are relegated to the servant’s hut of the family’s village home, and the dishonest and unscrupulous supervisor of their family estate reduces the family to a hand-to-mouth situation. Amol has played the role of the youngest brother who is not perturbed even in the extreme circumstances. In this song, he is telling his ‘mann’, his own self, and also his two sons, that one should be happy and have a song on the lips, no matter what are the difficulties facing oneself.

The sensitive lyrics are from the pen of Yogesh and the softly paced and oh so relaxing composition is tuned by Bhappi Lahidi. A wonder strike that is so different from the ‘disco’ Lahidi that we are more familiar with.

Wishing both Basu Da and Yesudas, many more such celebrations to follow in the coming years.

And once again, congratulations to all members of this bandwagon, on the 139th century song. Surely, we have come a long way. And equally surely, we still have a long way to go. . .  Cheers.


Song – Gaao Mere Mann  (Apne Paraaye) (1980) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhappi Lahidi

Lyrics

gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
poora nahin hota kisi ka
yahaan har sapan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
bujhe koi aasha ka diya
to phir se jala le
dukhon se tu haar na raahi
kiye ja jatan
ho oo
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
rukenge na tere liye re
samay ke charan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13898

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.


Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

“Naiyya”(1979) was directed by Prashant Nanda for Chanda Pictures, Bombay. I became aware of this fact when I discussed the earlier songs from this movie. Initially I was under the impression that this movie was a Rajshree Productions movie and once again I reverted back to the same impression with passage of time 🙂

The movie had Zarina Wahab, Prashant Nanda (new discovery for Hindi movies), Baldev Khosa, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Mohammad Mohsin (another new discovery), Jageerdaar, Dinesh Hingoo, Nandlal Sharma, c S Dubey, Shail Chaturvedi, Shivraj, Amrish Puri, Pardesi, Om Tripathi, Shankar Bhake, Manmauji, Rooplekha etc, along with guest appearances by Sulochana, Shubha Khote and Jayshree T.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of them have been covered in the past. Here is the fourth song from “Naiyya”(1979) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Yesudas and Suresh Wadkar. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Prashant Nanda, Baldev Khosa (I hope I have identified him correctly) and Zarina Wahab.


Song-Tera kuchh khoya ho…Geeta raani Geeta raani hans de zara (Naiyya)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Yesterday, 16thJune 2017, was the 97th birth anniversary of singer- music director-producer-director Hemant Mukherjee alias Hemant Kumar. He started out his music journey in 1935 on All India Radio with “Amar Ganete Ele Nabarupi Chirantanii” under the influence of his friend Subhas Mukhopadhayay. Hemant Da’s music career was primarily mentored by the Bengali musician, Sailesh Duttagupta. In his early life Hemant Da used to follow the famous Bengali singer Pankaj Mullick. For this he was nicknamed as “Chhoto Pankaj”. In an interview on television in the early 1980s, Hemanta had mentioned that he had also received classical music training from Ustad Faiyaz Khan’s student Phanibhusan Banerjee.

This article marks the 1000th song contribution by Prakashchandra in the blog.

We in this blog have nearly thirty odd people, may be a little more, who could be called blog regulars. They visit the blog regularly, comment on it regularly and they are contributors to the blog as well, in one way or the other.

I have met a few blog regulars over the years and I have interacted with several others on phone, e mail, whatsapp etc. Blog regulars too have met each other either personally or on whatsapp, facebook, email, phone etc. We these days have get togethers of regulars which we call “gangout”, which is a word of our own making. Nearly a dozen gangouts of blog regulars have already taken place so far.
