दिल तोड़ने वाले, तुझे दिल ढूंढ रहा है
आवाज़ दे तू कौन सी नगरी में छुपा है

But maybe not. जिस नगरी में तुम चले गए हो, वहाँ से आवाज़ इधर नहीं आ सकती। The only sound that remains is the recordings available,

Now this song today has a very interesting peculiarity, that was brought to our group’s notice by Bakshish Singh ji. I will come that shortly.

Today’s song, another vintage Chitragupt creation, which has remained kind of obscure and unfamiliar to the listening public. In its time, the music of this film was quite popular on the radio, especially the Mukesh song “Babam Babam Bam Bam Lehri” and the Kamal Barot song “Suna Hai Jabse Mausam Hai Pyaar Ke Kaabil”. The song presented in this post was also heard on the radio, but now it has been unheard for a long time.

Ramu Dada is a film by Sheikh Mukhtar. It is directed by Adarsh for the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay. The main star cast is listed as Sheikh Mukhtar, Jaimala, Prince Saleem, Honey Irani, Sapru, Nilofer, Rajan Haksar, Jagdish Shrivastav and Chand Usmani etc. In this, the name Prince Saleem is the same person as Salim Khan that we are more familiar with – part of the Salim-Javed team of story writers (‘Sholay’ (1975) et al.), father of actor Salman Khan.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs of this film. Three of these are already showcased on our blog. This post brings on board the fourth song of this film. All the songs are penned by Majrooh Sb and the music is composed by Chitragupt. In this song, Rafi Sb’s voice is accompanied by the voice of Lata ji. On screen, this song is performed by Salim Khan and Jaimala.

Now coming to the interesting peculiarity of this song. This song is one of those that has a slight variation in between the audio and video versions; or in other words, in between the 78 rpm recording and the recording actually filmed. Readers will recall that I discussed another such song earlier in the year – “Rangeen Bahaaron Se Hai Gulzaar China Town” from the 1962 film ‘Chinatown’. This song has a similar peculiarity. The verses noted in the lyrics section below are based on the audio version of this song, taken from the 78 rpm record. That version also supplies the title line for this post, and that is because the Geet Kosh takes this as the original wording for listing. The lines of the mukhda of this song has been modified in the video version.

The mukhda in the audio version is worded as,

Male Voice:
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
Female Voice:
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

In the video version filmed, the mukhda is worded as

Male Voice:
daal bhi de palkon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
Female Voice:
lo na sanam palkon ka naam
preet mein reet badhi jaaye

Please listen to the mukhda rendition in the two versions. When we listen to the audio version, it sounds very normal and correct, nothing is amiss. However, when we listen to the video version, the lines of the mukhda rendition sound somewhat altered and out of sync with the music. The most likely explanation is that these lines have been overlaid on to an earlier version of this song. Meaning that the song was filmed with the version that is present on the 78 rpm records. Then for some reason (unknown at this time), the mukhda lines were re-recorded with the sight variation in words, and then this recording was carefully dubbed onto the existing celluloid reels. However, the dubbing is not perfect. We can clearly make out a slight variation in the pace of music for these lines. And careful examination will also show that the lip sync for the mukhda lines is out of sync.

Having established this variation, however I have not been able to locate any information as to why this change was made, why was this change was so essential and necessary. I request friends and readers to add more information regarding the why of this change.

Meanwhile, check out these variant versions of the song.

Song – Daal Bhi De Zulfon Ki Chhaon  (Ramu Dada) (1961) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics (based on the audio version)

daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

kaahe tera
jalta dil hai bechara
aata nahin
aanchal haath tumhaara
kaahe tera
jalta dil hai bechara
aata nahin
aanchal haath tumhaara
ye rangeen ghata
paa ke hawa

lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye

ye kya hua
uljhi chaal tumhaari
dekho na ji
latt phir bikhri hamaari
ye kya hua
uljhi chaal tumhaari
dekho na ji
latt phir bikhri hamaari
na kyun jaaye bikhar
ham se nazar
ladti jaaye
ke daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

duniya kahe
sajna pyaar bura hai
yehi na ho
to ye duniya bhi kya hai
duniya kahe
sajna pyaar bura hai
yehi na ho
to ye duniya bhi kya hai
ye main dekh rahi
chaah teri
badhti jaaye
ke lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye
daal bhi de zulfon ki chhaaon
zaalima dhoop chadhi jaaye
lo na sanam zulfon ka naam
baat mein baat badhi jaaye

डाल भी दे ज़ुल्फों की छाँव
ज़ालिमा धूप चढ़ी जाये
लो न सनम ज़ुल्फों का नाम
बात में बात बढ़ी जाये
डाल भी दे ज़ुल्फों की छाँव
ज़ालिमा धूप चढ़ी जाये
लो न सनम ज़ुल्फों का नाम
बात में बात बढ़ी जाये

काहे तेरा
जलता दिल है बेचारा
आता नहीं
आँचल हाथ तुम्हारा
काहे तेरा
जलता दिल है बेचारा
आता नहीं
आँचल हाथ तुम्हारा
ये रंगीन घाटा
पा के हवा
उड़ती जाये
लो न सनम ज़ुल्फों का नाम
बात में बात बढ़ी जाये
डाल भी दे ज़ुल्फों की छाँव
ज़ालिमा धूप चढ़ी जाये

ये क्या हुआ
उलझी चाल तुम्हारी
देखो ना जी
लट फिर बिखरी हमारी
ये क्या हुआ
उलझी चाल तुम्हारी
देखो ना जी
लट फिर बिखरी हमारी
ना क्यों जाये बिखर
हमसे नज़र
लड़ती जाये
के डाल भी दे ज़ुल्फों की छाँव
ज़ालिमा धूप चढ़ी जाये
लो न सनम ज़ुल्फों का नाम
बात में बात बढ़ी जाये

दुनिया कहे
सजना प्यार बुरा है
येही ना हो
तो ये दुनिया भी क्या है
दुनिया कहे
सजना प्यार बुरा है
येही ना हो
तो ये दुनिया भी क्या है
ये मैं देख रही
चाह तेरी
बढ़ती जाये
के लो न सनम ज़ुल्फों का नाम
बात में बात बढ़ी जाये
डाल भी दे ज़ुल्फों की छाँव
ज़ालिमा धूप चढ़ी जाये
लो न सनम ज़ुल्फों का नाम
बात में बात बढ़ी जाये

The Golden era of HFM was well and truly over after 1980s, with Disco “music” sounding the death knell of HFM as we knew till then. In these “music”, lyrics were all but dispensed with.

HFM continued to have a few nice songs even during the “disco” era. There were still some artists who refused to compromise with quality and refused to stoop to the new low that was set as the new standards of HFM post 1980.

“Saagar”(1985) was one such movie whose music felt like a breath of fresh air during that era. This movie had come from the stables of a well known and well respected production house, one that had given us “Sholay”(1975).

“Saagar”(1985) was Produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Dimple Kapadia, Saeed Jaffrey, Shafi Inamdaar, Nadira, A K Hangal, Madhur Jaffrey, Satish Kaushik, Goga Kapoor, Kiran Vairale, Lilliput, Shobha Khote, Sudhir Pandey, Sharat Saxena, Mushtaq Merchant, Jairaj etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saagar”(1985) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Jawed Akhtar, who wrote the script of “Sholay”(1975) alongwith Salim Khan as Salim Jawed, had turned a lyricist by then. “Saagar”(1975) was one of the first (if not the first) movies where he penned lyrics.

R D Burman composed the music.

The song is picturised as a club song where Rishi Kapoor, holding a guitar, is seen lip syncing this song. The song is addressed to his long separated flame (played by Dimple Kapadia). Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia had last actded together in “Bobby”(1973) which was the launch vehcle for Rishi Kapoor as well as Dimple Kapadia. while Rishi Kapoor successfully got launched and established, Dimple Kapadia, in a surprise movie married Rajesh Khanna and vanished from films. It was more than one decade later that she was persuaded to make comeback to movies. She made quite a stunning comback in movie like “Aitbaar”(1985) and “Saagar”(1985).

Music of these movies were quie stunning and played stellar roles in the box office success of these movies.

The song under discussion is one such song. It remains a timeless classic to this day.


Song-Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

ho chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

arre tu kya jaane teri khaatir
kitna hai betaab ye dil
tu kya jaane dekh rahaa hai
kaise kaise khwaab ye dil
dil kehtaa hai tu hai yahaan
to jaataa lamhaa thham jaaye
waqt ka dariyaa behte behte
is manzar mein jam jaaye
toone deewaanaa dil ko banaayaa
is dil par ilzaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

ho aaj mai tujhase door sahi
aur tu mujhse anjaan sahi
tera saath nahin paaun to
khair tera aramaan sahi

lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalalala
lalalalalaa
laalaalaa

ho ye armaan ho
shor nahin ho
khaamoshi ke mele hon
is duniya mein koi nahin ho
ham donon hi akele hon
tere sapne dekh rahaa hoon
aur meraa ab kaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bataa tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

Missing Films of 1960s – 48
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Going by just the numbers, possibly the ‘Tarzan’ genre of films is the longest such category of films in the Hindi film industry. In the first five decades (from 1931 to 1980), I have tried to pick out the filmography by manual browsing through the Geet Kosh, I am able to locate a total of 15 films that starts with the word ‘Tarzan’ – and this might well be a record in the history of Hindi films.

Debut film for today is one of these Tarzan films – ‘Tarzan Aur Circus’. This 1965 film is produced under the banner of Sargam Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Shiv Kumar. The brief list of actors includes Azad, Chitra, Sherry, Sundar, Sujata, Rajan Kapoor etc.

The film has six songs listed. All songs are from the pen of Madhukar Rajasthani. And the music is composed by the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram.

The debut song is rendered by Asha Bhosle. The song is an ‘invite’ song in which the lady is trying to incite the gentleman to come and take refuge under the shadow of her tresses. The words by Madhukar Rajasthani are certainly very meaningful. Madhukar Rajasthani, a Hindi poet of significant fame, had some limited forays into the Hindi film industry. He has approximately 18 films to his credits, writing under two names – Madhukar and Madhukar Rajasthani.

A breezy melody from Husnlal-Bhagatram, enjoy this catchy rendition by Asha Bhosle.

 

Song – Meri Zulfon Ki Chhaaon Taley Aa Ja  (Tarzan Aur Circus) (1965) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Madhukar Rajashtani, MD – Husnlal-Bhagatram

Wow and wow, what a song. Same story, same pattern – production house is obscure, film is obscure, actors not so well accepted as grade A material, music director not so well recognized as top of the line. And that is where we find some the most titillating gems of music. Under different circumstances, this song could have been top of charts. E.g. if this song was performed on screen by, say, Shammi Kapoor, well then it would have been treated as a hit, and would have found its place in the listings of timeless classics of Rafi Sb’s fun songs.

Today we are going to discuss about a song and the concerned film, which turned out to a great disappointment, despite boasting of all the ingredients that were required to make it a hit film.

The film Garam Coat-55 was made in a time when Nehru’s socialism was having a great influence on the film industry. Many IPTA workers faced the dilemma of choosing between Stark Communistic approach and socialistic pattern advocated in India. The major difference was that Nehru’s socialism never detested private business or the big private industry, but certainly a concern was voiced for the ‘Have Nots’.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This rare offering comes to this blog at the express request of AK ji. I remember that a while back, someone, maybe AK ji only, had sent a message that this song needs to be searched. At that time, the name of the female singer accompanying Mahendra Kapoor was not known with certainty, and some guesses were being suggested. Anyway, I received a message from AK ji yesterday night, asking whether this song is traceable. I reproduce his message below.

There was a wonderful Mahendar Kapoor song (a duet) in the late 60s/early70s: Teri zulf mein chunke champe ki kaliyaan, teri maang ko motiyon se sazaa dun/ Mera vash chale to ae jaane tamanna, tujhe main bahaaron ki malika bana dun from Jaan Bachi Laakho Paaye, composed by an unheard duo called Ajay-Vishwanath. Very popular on radio, but seems to have vanished. I am surprised that it Is not on YT. Any idea of the song?

Well, yes sir, AK ji, very much have the song and here it is being posted today at your request. 🙂
