Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Welcome all to this post which again is coming after a ‘long gap’ in this series. Well, I hope to conclude this series too at the earliest possible 🙂 .

In this tenth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna – the Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1983. This was the year of Rajesh Khanna. He was back on the top with a bang. I don’t know if I should say this that he was reinstated as the ‘King of Bollywood’ once again.

The successes of the movies ‘Avtaar’, ‘Sautan’, and to an extent of the movie ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’ brought Kaka back into the limelight again. Another movie ‘Nishaan’ starring Kaka which was also released during this year 1983 also performed well at the box-office. Though he had delivered some versatile performances and kept doing different roles during the period 1975 to 1978 he was still far away from that level of success which he had tasted before.

He finally got a big boost in 1983 after his continued good performances, critically acclaimed performances and some commercially hit performances in the previous years i.e. from 1979 to 1982. Hit movies like ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodisi Bewafaai’ (1980); critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose’ (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980); successful movies like ‘Bandish’ in 1980; and then multi-starrer hits like ‘Qudrat’ in 1981, and ‘Raajput’, ‘Ashaanti’, and ‘Dharam Kaanta’ in 1982 had finally paid off. With two back-to-back hits – ‘Avtaar’ and ‘Sautan’, where Kaka was the main lead and a semi-hit like ‘Agar Tum Naa Hote’, brought a new life to Kaka’s filmi career or his ‘second innings’ as it is generally said.

In the year 1983 the following five movies of Rajesh Khanna were released. Although the movie ‘Baabu’ was passed by Censor Board in 1983, I remember it was released in theaters in 1985. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

03 Baabu^ A.C. Trilokchander 01.11.1983
04 Nishaan Surendra Mohan 06.01.1983
05 Sautan Sawan Kumar 24.05.1983

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Avtaar’. And since this year 1983 was a special year for Kaka, I would like to present more posts covering songs from this year. Let us see how it works.

‘Avtaar’ made its debut on the blog on 27.08.2012 with this song “Ho Ooperwaale Tera Jawaab Nahin” and I would like to quote below what Atul ji had written about this movie of Rajesh Khanna.

“Avtaar” (1983) was a movie of Rajesh Khanna during the second innings of his acting career when he was no longer a superstar. The movies in which Rajesh Khanna acted during this phase won critical acclaim though even if Rajesh Khanna came nowhere close to regaining his lost crown.

 

‘Avtaar’ was produced and directed by Mohan Kumar for his home productions Emkay Enterprises. It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sachin, AK Hangal, Sujit Kumar, Rajni Sharma, Madhu Malini, Yunus Parvez, Shashi Puri, Gulshan Grover, Pichoo Kapoor, Ranjan Grewal, Preeti Sapru and others. Madan Puri had a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kumar and Mushtaq Jalili. Screenplay of this movies was written by Mohan Kumar and dialogues were written by Mushtaq Jalili. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Bhatt. It was passed by Censor Board on 27.01.1983. HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in the foot note of this movie page that this film was re-certified with English sub-titles by Censor Board on 06.05.1983.

The movie has five songs (including one two-part song) penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. This is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar, Alka Yagnik, and Mahendra Kapoor. This song is picturized on Shashi Puri-Preeti Sapru, Gulshan Grover-Rajni Sharma. Both couples are lip syncing the voices of Suresh Wadkar and Alka Yagnik. Mahendra Kapoor’s voice is used for background score where we can see Rajesh Khanna working hard in his own garage and preparing himself for a greater challenge.

In the movie this song happens when Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi have left their home as their sons have betrayed them. Sachin (Sewak) accompanies them and arranges a temporary shelter for them. Not only this, after listening the conversation between his master and bibi ji he understands what his master needs. He then donates his blood and from the money for the blood, he buys aujaar (tools) for his master so that he can start his own garage. Rajesh Khanna has an uphill task from here to turn the fortunes while his sons are enjoying with their friends. That is where this song takes place, and we have some meaningful lyrics to listen.

That was all around forty years back now.

And if we go back fifty years i.e. to the year 1973 we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

5047 Post No. : 16960

Today 13th May’2022 is the seventy-sixth birthday of Shri Bishwanath Chatterjee compiler of Hindi Film Geet Kosh Vol-V (1971-1980). Those who have the copy of this Geet Kosh would have read about his brief introduction on the cover page no.2 of this Geet Kosh.
He has also been a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for HGK Vol-I to Vol-IV etc. and a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for the ‘List of Hindi Films (Talkie) – 1931-1987.

He has also been a co-author/co-editor with Vishwas Nerurkar for the books on Khayyam Saab, Kishore Kumar, Vasant Desai and Sudhir Phadke.

Here is a brief about him as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) by Devi Shankar Kanojiya and other details which Shri Chatterjee shared with me. (Devi Shankar Kanojiya a family friend is younger to Bishwanath ji by five years and settled at Kanpur now. He was earlier working in Telecom department of Government of India.).

Bishwanath Chatterjee was born on 13th May’1946 at Nagpur. He is born and brought up at Nagpur only. After his studies he joined the Department of Audit & Accounts (Postal). (This department was later bifurcated in two i.e., Accounts and Audit being separate departments.)
His first posting was at Jaipur (for Jaipur circle) where he stayed for one year i.e. 1970-1971. His next posting was at Bhopal where he stayed till 14.05.1980 and was transferred to Nagpur w.e.f.15.05.1980.
He retired in May’2006 as Director of Accounts (Postal) and now settled in Nagpur. He has a daughter who is happily married and stays abroad with her family. She has a son.

It so happened that around 1966 Bishwanath ji got interested in Hindi Film Music, or rather the HFM attracted him so much that after two years i.e., around 1968 a thought to compile the details of all songs till date, then stems in his mind.
However, in absence of sufficient and required resources he had to suppress the idea temporarily but a strong urge to have such a compilation has already taken deep roots in his mind.
In ‘1975’ he got to know about Harmandir Singh Hamraaz ji through the weekly ‘Screen’ and came into contact with him. He came to know that Hamraz ji was also working on a similar project and in fact almost 50% work of compiling such information has been completed by Hamraz ji till then. So he decided to support full heartedly to Hamraaz ji. And he has been instrumental in preparing the ‘manuscript’ for the first four volumes of ‘Geet Kosh’ and after that he independently compiled the ‘Geet Kosh – Vol-V’.

He also accompanied Shri Hamraaz ji in extensive travels to places like Bombay, Poona, Indore, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Calcutta, for gathering information and meeting various film personalities and film connoisseurs to get accurate information as possible.

In between, in the year of 1975 he founded ‘Saurabh Radio Shrota Sangh’ at Nagpur and also published ‘Saurabh-1977’ (as a co-editor). But due to economic constraints he had to discontinue this publication.

Shri Chatterjee has been a ‘passionate’ student of Hindi Film Music and has keen interests in Hindustani Classical Music. He has his own library consisting of lot of books about films and Geet & Ghazals.

I got a chance to meet him once during my stay at Nagpur in 2015-2017, where our regular reader Shri Avinash Shravane was also with us. It was a ‘film screening’ program by ‘Cine Montage, Nagpur’.
I left Nagpur on 09.03.2017 and since then I am in touch with him on phone-calls. As very rightly mentioned by Shri Kanojiya ji, Bishwanath ji is very humble, generous, enthusiastic and extremely sensible person.

Yesterday evening when I called him he was very happy and enthusiastic as ever. We discussed many topics and shared our thoughts too.

Once again I wish him a very happy birthday today, and a healthy and peaceful, yet’ full of music’al life ahead.

When I think about him I find the today’s song perfectly fit for this occasion as the ‘fragrance of his works and words – in the form of ‘Geet Kosh’ will be there forever –spreading the ‘spring’ of ‘nostalgia and memories’ for generations together.

‘Zindagi phoolon ki nahin
Phoolon ki tarah aa aa mehki rahe ae …’

Today’s song is from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Griha Pravesh’.

‘Griha Pravesh’ was directed by Basu Bhattacharya.

Basu Bhattacharya was also the writer and producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Shamila Tagore, Sarika, Master Bittoo, Sudha Chopra, Manik Dutt, Vimal Joshi, Raj Verma, Nandlal Sharma, R.S. Chopra, Satay Bannerjee, Shashi Jain, Tarun Mujherjee, Nilesh, Khoka Mukherjee, Danny, Master Bharat, and Nitin Sethi.
Dinesh Thakur, Priya Darshini, Ranjan, Devendra and Gulzar made a friendly appearance in this movie.

Script of this movie was written by Gulzar and Basu Bhattacharya.
Editing of this movie was done by Om Prakash Makkar.
Dialogues of this movie were written by Gulzar, and he also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Yesudas, Sulakshana Pandit, Chandrani Mukherjee, Pankaj Mitra, and Bhupendra had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kanu Roy.

Today’s song is sung by Bhupendra Singh and is a background song in the movie. It happens when the titles of this movie are rolling down.

Lyrics are by Gulzar and music is composed by Kanu Roy.

(I had noted this song more than five years back during my stay in Kenya and had earlier saved it for a special post.
Later on our dear Prakash ji had also sent the lyrics for this song with other remaining songs of this movie.).

Today’s song is a comedy song from the film Arabian Nights-1946.

Can there be a child who has not read the story of Alibaba or Alladin or Sindbad the sailor ? All of us have read these stories in our younger days,but not many know that these stories are from ‘Arabian Nights’ or ‘The 1001 Nights’.

These are collections of stories from West and south Asia. The history of this book is very complex.Suffice to say that it is a composite work and that the earliest tales came from India and Persia. Perhaps in the 8th century,these were translated into Arabic and authors from every generation went on adding stories to it.However,the basic Frame story remains the same for centuries.

King Shahriyar of Persia is shocked to discover that not only his brother’s wife but his own wife is not faithful to them.He has both women executed.Having lost faith in women,he orders his Vazir to bring one Virgin everyday to him,for marriage.The next morning,she gets executed,to prevent her from being unfaithful. At one point of time,the Vazir exhausts his supply and he is to be executed the next day.His daughter Sheherzad asks her father to marry her to the King.Her pleading forces him to offer her to the king and they are married.On the first night of Marriage,Sheherzad starts telling a story to the king for whole night,but does not complete it.The story is so interesting that the King postpones her execution.

Second night she continues and the whole night the story remains incomplete….this way she tells him 1001 stories in 1001 nights.Finally a happy King pardons her. These are collectively called “The Arabian Night Stories. Many sources like Sanskrit, Persian, Arabic etc claim to be its root. However Historians’ consensus is that it is a composite work of many authors. Many stories from this book have been made into films in Hollywood and Bollywood.

A cursory look at the Film Title Index-1913 to 2012 by Hamraz ji tells us that the most popular stories are on Allauddin, Alibaba and Sinbad as well as Gul E Bakavli, besides films on other not so well known characters. In the Silent film era, films on Alibaba were made in 1927 (2films), Allauddin in 1927 (2), 1928,1931 Sindbad in 1930(2) and Arabian Nights-1930. During the Talkie films, the first film on Alibaba was in 1932, then in 40,46,54(2),66,76,77,80 and 2004. On Aladdin in 35, 36, 39,41, 49,52 (2), 55, 57,58,66,78, 82(2). On Sindbad in 46(2),52(2),58,65 and 2000.

As always, the creative heads in the story departments of filmmakers invented titles like Alladin ka Beta, Alladin ki Beti, Alladin and Laila. Similarly son and daughter were gifted to Alibaba and Sinbad and films made on them. The funniest title was Sindbad, Alibaba and Allauddin-1965 !

On a quick checking of HFGK entries for the 40’s decade we find that as many as 9 films were made in 1946 alone on these characters. Added were Baghdad ka chor, Hoor E Baghdad Sher E baghdad Arab ka chand and Shah E Misr-in which actor Ajit debuted with his real name Hamid.

Film Arabian Night-46 was made by P R Productions , Bombay, in Calcutta. In those days, many films were made by Bombay Producers in Calcutta with Bangla Artistes. Examples are films Krishnleela-46(producer laxmidas Anand from Bombay), Arabian Nights-46 and Chandrashekhar-48 (Ashok kumar was specially brought from Bombay to act opposite Kanan Devi). Speciality of these films was that Bombay banners preferred Kanan devi as Heroine and Kamal Dasgupta as MD for their films.

Film Arabian Nights-46 was directed by Niren Lahiri. kamal Dasgupta gave music to songs written by Faiyyaz Hashmi-the popular lyricist who could write songs in pure Hindi also. His name is known to NFS loving music lovers all over India. he wrote beautiful Lyrics for NFS sung by Talat Mahmood, Hemant kumar, Jagmohan, Juthika Roy, Pankaj Mullik and others.

Fayyaz was born on 18-6- 1920 at Calcutta. His father, Syed Muhammad Hussain Hashmi Dilgeer was a very famous poet and writer of stage drama. He was director at the top class theater of that time named “ MADAN THEATER LTD.” He knew 8 languages.

Senior lyricist, Faiyyaz Hashmi, passed away in Karachi on Nov 29 th 2011. He shot to fame after penning lyrics for such non-film songs as ;Ye Raatein Ye Mausam; (Pankaj Mullick), ;Tasveer Teri Dil Mera; (Talat Mehmood), ;Dil Ko Hai Tum Se Pyar Kyun; (Jagmohan), ;Bhala Tha Kitna Apna Bachpan; (Hemant Kumar), and so many more rendered by the likes of Juthika Roy and Feroza Begum.

Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi is a legendary song and dialogue writer and above all a true loving person. He is by himself an institution and a common asset of the Indo-Pakistan film-world. His admirers as ever are not confined in national frontiers. Those fond of Hindi / Urdu songs anywhere in the world have affection for him. The emergence of this bright star was evidenced much before independence of India, when Fayyaz Hashmi, still a teenager wrote the most famous song “Tasveer Teri Dil Mera Behla Na Sakhe Gi”. It was recorded in the voice of Talat Mehmood and music was composed by Kamal Das Gupta. This song brought “Talat” to limelight. Music for most of the Fayyaz Hashmi’s songs recorded at Calcutta was composed by Kamal Das Gupta.

The dynamic achievements of young Fayyaz Hashmi and his clarity of expression by using simple words were greatly appreciated by Qazi Nazrul Islam -“Tum mann main doob kar mann ka bhed nikaltey ho. Aasan shubdoon mein mushkil baat kehna buhut mushkil hay”. His unique combination of Urdu, Hindi and Sanskrit words to produce a harmonious song thus became a guideline for the future poets of geets. The transformation of some traditional Bangla songs was also facilitated. He has also written songs in Brij Bhasa and Purbi. His pre-independence songs total to about 1000.

Fayyaz Hashmi wrote his first verse “Chaman main Ghuncha-o-gul ka tabassum dekhne walo – Kabhi tum ne haseen kalyoon ka murjhana bhi dekha hai” when he was in 7th class. As a student of 9th class, he was participating in regular “mushairas”. He got an assignment in the British owned Gramophone Company at DumDum (now called Jessore Road, Kolkotta) India. He served there during 1943 to 1948 period. At that time the average monthly production of record was only 16. Once all the records (16) issued in a month were written by Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi- a record by itself. Some of the evergreen hit songs of Mr. Fayyaz Hashmi are quoted here:

1- Honton se gulfishan hain who – Aankhoon se ashkbar hum Talat Mahmood
2- Do Kafir Aankhoon ne mara Talat Mahmood
3- Dil ko hai tum se pyar kyoon Jag Mohan
4- Aaj use phir dekha hai Jag Mohan
5- Bhala tha kitna apna bachpan Hemant Kumar

Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.

Hullo Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hullo Atuldom

Over the last few days we have had some very wordy posts- wordy in terms of the write up and also length of the song/s. None of these posts were boring, they were educative and informative.

Nahmji’s post was a lesson on Ramadan, Hajj, Umrah, and the pilgrimages to Makka and Madinah and also the protocols being followed in these times of the Pandemic.

This post of Atulji spoke of “Covid 19: Virus and treatment Simplified” as our Avinashji has said in the comments to the post.

In between the two posts we had one by our in-house encyclopedia on his disciplined habits of making handwritten notes about the movies he had seen. In the post he has written a point to which even I subscribe to “Depending on the age of the person, the period of ‘old films’ differs. For an young man of, say 20-25 years old films may mean films which came in the 80’s and 90’s. For people of 30-40 years, films of the 6o’s and 70’s are old films. For people of 45-60 years of age, old films are from the 50’s. Only people in the age bracket of 65 to say 80/85, it is films of the 30’s and 40’s which are old films!”

In addition I was going to mention that the meaning of entertainment and content of the films made in each era reflects the current social scene, problems, and aspirations of the younger generation. This too Guruji has spoken about in this post yesterday.

I have always seen movies with the intention of getting entertained and I love it when there is no logic in what is shown on the Silver-Screen. That is why I like the “RH ka group” and “two jyothis emanating from the eyes of an idol and giving vision to a blind lady” scenes. Similarly I like it when the doctors on-screen say “isko dawa ki nahin dua ki zaroorat hai”. I am sure the medical fraternity must be squirming in their seats when they see the doctors mouthing these words. Same goes for the Police, they are always shown to arrive late at scenes of crime unless the lead actors are playing the cop. But we will focus on the cops of Indian movies in a different post.

The song with this post sees the heroine playing a doctor. She is the resident Doctor who does her rounds, checks on all the patients and smiles lovingly at each one of them (and that should be enough to cure half her patients as her smile is high-voltage). One of her patients has lost his memory in some accident (regular feature in all Indian Movies) and Dr. Sushma (Madhuri Dixit) not only takes care of him but also falls in love with Krishna (name given to the character played by Aditya Pancholi by the hospital) and marries him. Later, the doctor’s friendly Inspector Ranjit Kapoor (Suresh Oberoi) warns her that her husband was set to kill her before the accident and her life may be in danger if he regains his memory. Krishna regains his memory when he has another accident (again normal for Indian Movies) and he again tries to kill the Doctor accusing her of being the cause of his sister’s death. Then the movie follows the usual path of clearing misunderstandings and All Is Well in the end.

This was the plot of “Sailaab” which released 31 years ago in August of 1990. It was a remake of a 1988 Tamil movie which I have seen in the open-air auditorium of the colony where I had lived in the initial years of my married life. “Sailaab” was produced by Surendra Jain and directed by Deepak Balraj Vij. Bappi Lahiri was the music composer of songs written by Javed Akhtar and Anjaan. The playback singers used were Anupama Deshpanse, Amit Kumar, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Sudesh Bhonsle, Asha Bhonsle, and someone called Mangal Singh. The cast comprised of Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Pancholi, Suresh Oberoi, supported by Anand Balraj, Shafi Inamdar, Om Shivpuri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, C S Dubey, Sahila Chadda, Jamuna, Shammi, T.P. Jain etc. I have seen climax of “Sailaab” and must say that it was edge-of-seat experience. The most popular song of this movie won Saroj Khan a Filmfare award for best choreography.

We are having this song to wish Madhuri on her birthday. I don’t think this popular actress of over 70 films needs any introduction. Neither do I need to say that she is a recipient of 6 Filmfare awards and also been awarded the PadmaShri by the government of India in 2008. She made her debut in a Rajshree Productions movie in 1984 and was repeated by the production house in “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun”(1994) a movie that ran to packed houses for 200 days. She has co-starred all the actors (male and female) of the ’80s and ’90s. Then she got married and settled into domestic bliss for a few years and returned with Yashraj films “Aaja Nachle” in 2007. Since then we see her intermittently on-screen and being appreciated for the wide range of characters that she is playing. We also see her on television judging Dance Reality shows.

On to today’s song which is sung by Amit Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is written by Javed Akhtar. Going by the available video it looks like the song plays in parts and these have been uploaded as one whole. This song is almost similar to “tumse milke aisa laga tumse milke” from “Parinda”.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 136 # A tribute to lyricist Verma Malik & Rishi Kapoor#
——————————————-————————————————-—

Today 30th April’2021 is the first ‘Remembrance Day’ of actor Rishi Kapoor. He was born 04th September 1952 and passed away on 30th April 2020 at the age of sixty-seven only.

When I was a growing child in the seventies Rishi Kapoor was a rising star and had started his film career with the 1973 movie ‘Bobby’. I must be five years old then. And as I have mentioned in one of my earlier articles, I had not watched this movie. Maybe I have watched few songs of this movie on TV. Then there were movies like ‘Rafoo Chakkar’, ‘Badalte Rishtey’, ‘Raajaa’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, ‘Jhoothha Kahin Ka’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane’ etc, then ‘Naseeb’’ ‘Ye Waadaa Rahaa’, ‘Karz’, ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhaanaa Hai’ and others which are a part of nostalgia of my growing years. I am not going to list all of them here. But I would like to mention few of his movies which I watched as a grown-up boy, ‘Saagar’, ‘Chaandni’, ‘Bol Radha Bol’, ‘Deewaanaa’, ‘Heena’ etc which I watched during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan).

In the recent years I watched his ‘102 not out’ on TV after his death.

As I mentioned above his movies are part of my growing years and will always be remembered whenever Hindi movies of the seventies-eighties’ are discussed.

He was very active in his personal life too and he spoke his mind on many issues on social media like twitter.

He was smiling even on the day he was hospitalized as we have seen in a video in circulation in media after his hospitalization or just before the night that he left us.

He lived his life to the fullest and his smiling face can never be forgotten.

For today’s occasion I am presenting a song which is a background song from the movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’. If we see the types of roles Rishi Kapoor played on screen and his personal life, he was always a ‘Zindaa Dil’ person.

Let us have a look on the list of movies released in ‘1975’ having actor Rishi Kapoor acted in them.

S. No Name of the movie Actress Passed by Censor Board
01 Khel Khel Mein Neetu Singh 13.05.1975
02 Raajaa Sulakshana Pandit 17.11.1975
03 Rafoo Chakkar Neetu Singh 02.01.1975
04 Zindaa Dil Neetu Singh 15.10.1975

(I sincerely hope that I have not missed any movie in above list)

Today’s song is written by lyricist Verma Malik. We remember him too and pay our homage to him. His ninety-sixth birth anniversary passed on 13th April’2021.
He was born on 13th April 1925 and left this world on 15 March 2009.

Today’s wonderful song also serves as our tribute to him.

Coming back to the today’s movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’, it was directed by Sikander Khanna for ‘S.B. Films International, Bombay’.

It had Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Zahira, Pran, I.S. Johar, Roopesh Kumar, Rajesh Lahar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, C.S. Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Padma Chauhan, Rajrani, Uma Khosla, Master Shailesh, Master Rocky, Baby Fatima, Meenakshi, Goga, Dham Mota, Ghanshyam, Manohar Azad, and K.D. Shorey, Raja Duggal and Sikander Khanna in special appearance.

This was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1975.

This movie had five songs penned by Verma Malik and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi. I guess that this song appears in the movie in parts. HFGK Vol-V mentions this song as one song only. Video for all the parts of this song seems to be un-available.

In the year ‘1975’ Verma Malik wrote lyrics for the following movies.

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aandolan Jaidev
02 Apne Dushman Kalyanji-Anandji
03 Chori Mera Kaam Kalyanji-Anandji
04 Do Jhooth Shankar-Jaikishan
05 Monto Kalyanji-Anandji
06 Raftaar Sonik-Omi
07 Sanyaasi Shankar-Jaikishan
08 Zindaa Dil Laxmikant-Pyarelal
09 Zorro Kalyanji-Anandji

From the songs penned by him in the above movies, only one song made it to the final of Binaca geetmala 1975. It was a song from ‘Sanyaasi-1975’ and it was was at number thirty-two. However, the top two songs of the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ 1975 were written by Verma Malik. They were from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’.

Let us now listen to today’s song (a philosophical song) and pay our tributes to lyricist Verma Malik and actor Rishi Kapoor…

Today’s song, which I guess is played in parts in the movie, are available in audio in several versions. I have selected a version that contains all stanzas .

Chorus

Lyrics

Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aaaa aa

Hanskar har mushkil apnaa
Duniyaa kaa yahi asool
Khilkar jab tak kali hanse naa
Tab tak bane naa phool
Hanste chehre ke sab saathi
Rone ko saath naa koyee
Hansne waalaa bane sitaaraa
Roye to paanv ki dhool
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa

Ik din maut aayegi sabko
Aaj nahin to kal hai
Kisi ki khaatir mar jaana
Ye baat badi mushkil hai
Sadiyon tak wo rahegaa amar
Jo auron pe huaa nichhaawar
Mar kar bhi zindaa rahtaa hai
Wo hi to zindaa dil hai
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa

Pee jaa aankh ke aansu inko
Palkon pe naa tol
Tapak pade jo dharti pe to
Jayegi dharti dol
Jis jeewan mein dukh naa aaye
Wo jeewan bhi kyaa hai
Kabhi nahin Zindaa dil hotey
Gham se daanwaadol
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Phoolon se bhi chaand hai sundar
Chaand se sundar preet
Preet se sundar man apnaa
Man se sundar man ki jeet
Man ki jeet jalaa ke tu kar de
Raushan yaar kaa ghar
Preet mein jeena
Preet mein marnaa
Yahi hai prem ki reet
Kyun ke
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai
Zindagi zindaa dili kaa naam hai

Aa aa aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

Blog Day :

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.10.1983.

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

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

let us now enjoy today’s song …
