Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 84
————————————————–

This day ten years ago (viz 22 september 2020) was another normal day for the blog, when six songs from six different movies were discussed. First post of the day appeared at 7:29 AM and the final post at 9:12 AM.

Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered
Teri kaafir nigaah kar gayi dil ko tabaah Miss Coca Cola-1955 All Songs covered
Yaad karoon tori batiyaan Mr Lambu-1956 All Songs covered
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham Fashion-1957 06 songs posted
Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

One can see from the above that four out of six movies whose songs were covered ten years ago have been YIPPEED by now,

“Fashion”(1957) was one of the two as yet unYIPPEED movies.

“Fashion”(1957) was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Kuldip Pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Chandrashekhar, Manoj Kumar, Jabeen Jaleel,Sunder, Jabeen Jalil, Jagdish Sethi, Kammo, Leela Misra etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. six songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details :-

Song Posted On
Bahaaron se poochho ・laakh sambhaala magar kho gaya 23.09.2009
Tum aur ham bhool ke gham 22.09.2010
Madbhari hain pyaar ki palkein 05.08.2012
Dharti ki goad mein aasmaan ke chhaaon mein 19.07.2016
Honthon pe tera naam 17.10.2016
Maati ko lajaanaa naa 16.07.2019

It turns out that the last two songs of the movie were multiple version songs. The first part was a multilingual song sung by Sulochana Kadam and Mubarak Begam. The second part in Hindi was sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas was the lyricist. Music was composed by Hemant Kumar.

Part I is listed in HFGK as “Bindu baashi daao more haath, aaj nishi bazaari” which are in Bangla. This song is available as Bharat Ke Lok Geet. This fact is also mentioned in HFGK Part III footnote at page no.349 movie no.697.

On listening to the song, the Bangla portion is not to be found. Marathi, Gujarati, Marwadi and Punjabi portions can be heard. So it appears that the Bangla portion has got omitted for some reason.

Lyrics of this song and other BTYC details were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Lyrics of the first part (the multilingual one) as noted leaves a lot to be desired mainly because of lack of familiarity with the languages. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with these languages to help fill in and suggest additions/ corrections in the lyrics.

With these songs, all the eight songs of “Fashion”(1957) get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Moreover, Hemant Kumar now has 300 songs in the blog as a music director.

“Son of Sindbad” and “Daughter of Sindbad” were both released in 1958. So it seems to me that they were twins. 🙂

“Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) was directed by Ratilal for Starland Productions movie, Bombay. The movie had Jairaj, Nadira, Pran, Maruti, Tiwari, Kamal Kapoor etc in it. The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Daughter of Sindbad”(1958) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi , Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Anjum Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta. Incidentally, Chitragupta was the music director in “Son of Sindbad” (1958) as well.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Lahar chup hai hawa chup hai (Daughter of Sindbad)(1958) Singers-Rafi, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Anjum Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta
Chorus

Lyrics

20th September was the birthday of Mahesh Bhatt. I knew there are numerous films with very good significant song in them produced and directed by Mahesh Bhatt which are not posted and some of these movies are yet to make an appearance in the blog. But it sometimes happens that what is easily available and do-able, never gets done and I neglected a few post, like the post for Hasrat Jaipuri during last week. Peevesie’s mom post of the Hinglish song from “Ham hain raahi pyaar ke” has encouraged me to do a post for this day.

This song from “Aashiqui” (1990) has a very appealing presence in the “Chitrahaar” made by Mahesh Bhatt. I have liked the songs of this film, as do many people of my generation. The only song from this film posted so far is here. In this post a lot about the film and the music is written.

For some months now, the link and lyrics are waiting in drafts for writing a post. The song is ‘Tu…… meri zindagi hai, tu…… meri har khushi hai”. Singer is the dependable Kumar Sanu. The lyrics are credited to Sameer and music to Nadeem-Shrawan”. But there is a catch here: see what I have found in the trivia about this song.

“This song was an adaptation of a Pakistani film song with the same mukhda from the film “Mohabbat Mar NahinSakti” (1977). The original song was composed by Nashad. While lyricist Sameer used the same mukhda as Tasleem Fazli’s original, the antara had different lyrics. The original song had two solo versions sung by Mehdi Hassan and Noor Jehan.”

I had years ago heard a Pakistani song of the same tune and mukhdaa on youtube, by a singer recording for PTV, while looking for this song from Aashiqui. But this information in the trivia is news to me. So I looked up the Noorjehan song and found both audio and video clips :
Audio by Noor jahaan
Video of film song.

The video of Mehdi Hasan version is also available :
Video of Mehdi hasan song
Audio version

Today 21 september is the 94th birth anniversary of Madam Noorjahan, and I find it fitting to give the lyrics of the song from the film “Mohabbat mar nahi sakti”(1977), sung by Noorjahan. The composer is Nashad, who might be the same one who features in the blog with many compositions in the 50’s decade.

Lyrics :

Tu uu uu uu
meri zindagi hai
tuuu
meri har khushi hai
tu hi pyaar tu hi chaahat
tu hi bandagi hai
Tu……
meri zindagi hai

jab tak na dekhoon tujhe
sooraj na nikle ae
jab tak na dekhoon tujhe
sooraj na nikle ae
zulfon ke saaye saaye
maahtaab ubhre
tu hi meraa hosh saathhi
tu hi bekhudi hai
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai
tuuu
meri har khushi hai
tu hi pyaar tu hi chaahat
tu hi bandagi hai
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai

mere labon pe tere
naghme milenge ae
mere labon pe tere
naghme milenge ae
aankhon mein saathhi tere
jazbe milenge ae
mere dil mein tu hi tu hai
teri raushni hai ae
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai

chhod ke duniyaa tujh ko
apnaa banaa loon
chhod ke duniyaa tujhko
apnaa banaa loon
sab se chhupaa ke tujhko o o
dil mein basaa loon
tu hi meri pehli khwaahish
tu hi aakhri hai ae ae
Tuuuuu
meri zindagi hai

So the song presented here is the second song from the film ‘Aashiqui’(1990). This is an indian adaptation of the song original sung by the two legends of across the border. Noor jahan and Mehdi Hasan were stalwarts of their style of singing and Kumar Sanu, singing the indian version was a Kishore Kumar clone, trying to make a name for himself back in 1990. So we will be kind and not make comparisons among unequal creations of the Almighty, whom he may have blessed differently.

But honestly, Kumar Sanu is not doing bad at all. Kumar Sanu’s birthday is also round the corner, on 23rd September. So we celebrate it a bit in advance with this remarkable song.

Dancing has been an integral part of Indian cinema even during the era of silent films. In most of the silent films, dancing was mostly confined to courtesans which the society saw it in a negative way. It was only after sound films came in 1931, the film makers started looking for actors who could also sing and dance. So, multi-tasking was the buzz word for the main actors during the early period of sound films. Some actors like Mumtaz Ali, Sunita Devi, Shahzaadi etc were known for their dancing skills though they also acted in supporting roles. Even some lead actors like Molina Devi of New Theatres (remember her dance in ‘Kaarwaan-e-Hayat’, 1935), Radha Rani of Bombay, Mumtaz Shanti and even Leela Chitnis in the film ‘Kanchan’ (1941) were required to dance as part of their roles. By the start of 1940, Sadhana Bose from Bengal joined Hindi films as a classical dancer in the lead/supporting roles.

A few trained dancers like Sitara Devi and Auzurie joined the Hindi film industry by the middle of 1930s. While Sitara Devi was trained both in Hindustani classical and western dances, Auzurie was trained in folk and western dances. Unfortunately, many of their films of 1930s with dances are not available for viewing. While Sitara Devi graduated to heroine and side heroine’s roles in the 1940s, Auzurie continued to work in the films mainly as a dancer.

The success of Sitara Devi and Auzurie in Hindi films seems to have prompted the film makers to have dance song numbers in most of the Hindi films in mid-40s onward. This gave the more scope for trained dancers to join Hindi films. One of the prominent dancers to join Hindi films was Cuckoo in mid-40s. She set a trend in Hindi films by her dance numbers to have at least one dance sequence in most of the Hindi films in the second half of the 1940s and thereafter. The important of her dance numbers in Hindi films can be gauged by the fact that during 1944-50, she danced in as many as 74 films.

With Cuckoo’s popularity as a dancer, some more prominent dancers joined Hindi films like Kumkum in 1947, Mohana Cabral in 1948, Roopmala in 1949, Sheila Vaz, Helen and Padmini, all in 1951. By the middle of 1950s, Hindi film makers had a good number of dancers to choose. One of the dancers who joined Hindi films in the second half of 1950s was Minu Mumtaz. Based on the book, ‘Mehmood – A Man of Many Moods’ (2005) by Hanif Zaveri and ‘The Incredibly Beautiful Minoo Mumtaz’ in YouTube Channel, ‘Tabassum Talkies’, I have attempted a short write-up covering the life story of Minu Mumtaz below:

Minu Mumtaz (real name: Malikunnisa Ali) was born on April 26, 1942 in Mumbai. She was one of the eight siblings of Mumtaz Ali, the popular dancer, singer and supporting actor of the Bombay Talkies in the 1930s and 40s. Mehmood, the comedian was her elder brother and the actor Anwar Ali was her youngest brother.

The family which was enjoying from the money and fame of Mumtaz Ali in the 40s, drifted to poverty due to his excessive drinking. He lost all money, houses, cars and even household items just to satisfy his addiction to drinking. With this, the responsibility of looking after a large family fell on Mehmood, being the eldest son. But he was not getting enough money from his odd jobs to look after a large family. It was Minu Mumtaz who thought of working in the films. She had learnt dance from her father and used to perform dances in her father’s dance troupe, ‘Mumtaz Ali Nites’. But her mother was against any one working in the films as she felt that it was the films which made her husband, Mumtaz Ali the victim of drinking habit.

But the financial condition in the family had become extremely precarious. A time came when it was difficult to manage even two-time meals. One day Minu Mumtaz along with her elder sister, Khairunnisa met Nanubhai Vakil for work in his film who was directing ‘Sakhi Hatim’ (1955. When he came to know that she was the daughter of Mumtaz Ali, he gave her a small role in the film. This was the beginning of her filmy career. She got more films with her dance numbers. With her song in ‘CID’ (1956), she got recognition as a good dancer. Thereafter, there was no looking back for Minu Mumtaz as she got many films, enhancing her status from a dancer to character actors, side roles with the heroines and in a few films even as a heroine.

During the shooting of her film ‘Bandhan’ (1956), Meena Kumari, who had become the sister-in-law of Mehmood, having married her younger sister, Madhu in 1952, gave Malikannisa the screen name ‘Meenu’ to rhyme with Meena. Because of the efforts of Minu Mumtaz, the family got to live in a comfortable position. Mehmood used to say that Minu Mumtaz is not her younger sister but she is like an elder brother to him. Of course, after his box office hit film, ‘Chhoti Bahen’ (1959), Mehmood’s luck also turned for the better in his filmy career to become a star comedian and later the producer and the director.

Minu Mumtaz married S. A. Akbar in 1963 who had directed Mehmood’s ‘Chhote Nawab’ (1961). The family first shifted to Kuwait and thereafter moved to Canada where she resides now.

I have gone through Minu Mumtaz’s filmography as well as songs picturised on her which throws some interesting information. During her active years of filmy career, Minu Mumtaz worked in around 75+ films. Almost equal numbers of songs have been picturised on her. In some films, she had more than one song to her credit. She was in the lead roles in ‘Black Cat’ (1959) and ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Baat’ (1959).

Johny Walker was like a member of the entire Mumtaz Ali family and he was consulted on important family matters. The marriage of Mehmood with Madhu was decided fixed in Johny Walker’s house. I feel that Johny Walker has been instrumental in pushing up her filmy career at least in the initial stages. This is borne out by the fact that Minu Mumtaz worked with Johny Walker in as many as 23 films of which in most of these films, she paired with him. Her brother, Mehmood had worked with her in 14 films of which 9 films pertain to the years when Mehmood had not firmly established in Hindi film industry.

As I said earlier, around 75 songs have been picturised on Minu Mumtaz. Our Blog has covered as many as 69 songs. I have given below links of a few of her popular songs for ready reference:

main hoon Johny badaa toofaani – ‘Maai Baap’ (1957)

boojh mera kya naam re – ‘C.I.D.’ (1956)

aji chale aao aji chale aao – ‘Halaaku’ (1956)

meri jaan meri jaan pyaar kisi se – ‘Yahudi’ (1958)

sitaare raah takte hain – ‘Black Cat’ (1959)

jaanu jaanu re chhupke kaun aaya – ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ (1959)

saaqiyaa aaj mujhe neend nahin aayegi – ‘Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam’ (1962)

thodi der ke liye mere ho jaao – ‘Akeli Mat Jaiyyo’ (1963)

On the basis of the listing of Minu Mumtaz songs on the Blog as well as the video clips of her songs available on the video sharing platforms, I have been able to identify six songs picturised on Minu Mumtaz for which video clips are available and are yet to be covered in the Blog. I present one of those six songs from the film ‘Jagga Daaku’ (1959). The song is ‘teri kasam tujhko sanam pyaar kiya re’ sung by Geeta Dutt. Obviously, the song is picurised as a dance by Minu Mumtaz. Jairaj is present in the entire duration of the song. The song is written by B D Mishra which is set to music by S N Tripathi.

Unfortunately, the picture as well as audio qualities of the song on video clip are not good. At two places, there are breaks in the song. So, I have based the lyrics on the audio clip which has a better-quality audio.

As happened with me when I heard the song, I am sure that most of the senior visitors to the Blog would recall that they had heard this song long back but did not relate to the film.

This is the second song to appear in the Blog out of 6 songs in ‘Jagga Daaku’ (1959).

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from film Daku ki Ladki-54. I remember, there was a film in 1933 with the same title, featuring Sulochana, Dinshaw Bilimorea, Ghulam Mohd. Hadi etc. In that film, Ghulam Mohd. had done the role of the Daku, Sulochana was Daku’s Ladki and Dinshaw was the Police Officer.Ghulam Mohd. was known as ” The Prince of Imperial Film Company”, in those days.

Today’s film was made by Harish Productions. Naturally, the director and the Producer was Tara Harish only. Music was by Hemant Kumar. The cast of the film was Geeta Bali, Sheikh Mukhtar, Arjun, Shivraj, Rajan Kapoor, Mukri, Sankatha Prasad, Cuckoo etc etc.

The word “Daku” regularly appeared in the film titles right from the time Talkie films started. There were a total 32 films starting with the word Daku. When the film Daku ki Ladki came in 1933, as if to counter it, a film called Daku ka Ladka came in 1935. Thank God Daku’s family did not expand further ! Interestingly, there were 16 films based on female Dakus and only 7 films on Male Dakus. I wonder, what is the Hindi word for female Daku. A Dakin ? or a Dakuin ? or is it enough just to say He Daku and She Daku ? While female Dakus were honoured by calling them Daku Rani in 5 films and Daku Maharani in 1 film, the poor He Dakus had prosaic titles like Daku Bhupat or Daku Mansoor etc.etc.

When I took up discussing the 50’s film songs, I found that a lot of melodious and good songs to be yet to be discussed. Today’s song is one such song. To listen to Lata and Hemant Kumar is nothing short of a Bliss. Out of 2 such duets from this film one had remained to be discussed. In one of her interviews, Lata had said that she had always enjoyed singing duets with Hemant Kumar. She also said ” I used to feel as if some Sadhu was singing when I heard him singing a song”.

In the Costume drama Daku ki Ladki-54, Ravi Shankar Sharma was Hemant’s assistant in composing music.In few Hemant Kumar films, Ravi has sung songs, including this film. Later on when Ravi himself became a famous and successful composer, he made Hemant Kumar sing in his films. HK was a very respected person in the industry. When he came to Bombay his Hindi was not so good. Like all Bangla people, he had inherent difficulty in pronunciation of certain Hindi words. This was because, in Bangla language, there are no such sounds as plain ” A ” (अ ). So, Arun becomes Orun and Lata becomes Lota. With great practice and hard work, he improved his Hindi. Initially, even Geeta Roy had this problem.

In the cast of the film, you will see a name Shivraj. Not much is known about this good actor. Sometimes I feel some actors have such features that they are fixed for certain roles only and they are misfits in another role. For example, can you ever imagine Rashid Khan or Kanhaiyalal in a role of a sophisticated Millionnnaire ? Or Aruna Irani or Padma Khanna in a Mythological Devi’s role ? They may be good actors, but their physical features and style of acting restricts them to certain roles only. This is true even in case of big stars. Thus, Ashok Kumar became a laughing stock as Abhimanyu or warrier Humayun in full war gear.

The name SHIVRAJ in the cast always created curiosity in my mind. I had seen this actor in several films. I was unable to get any information on him anywhere. His role as the meek husband of Kaushalya (Manorama) in the film Seeta aur Geeta-72 is unforgettable. When I started work on this post, I tried again. This time I found an article – actually an Obituary – on him in The Hindu, dated 4-6-2017. Of course it described in it only about his different roles. From some other source, I got his date of Birth and Death and a little other information.

Shivraj was born on 11-6-1920 in Madhya Pradesh. His full name was Shivraj Pandey. After doing his graduation, he came to Bombay in search of a good job, but joined the film industry. To start with he worked in Minerva as an assistant in administration, He did some film roles too without getting credited. He left Minerva and got a role in the film Sarai ke bahar-47. This was a film made by National studios. His next films were Ziddi, Majboor, Batohi, and Asha all in 1948. Then there was no looking back. Shivraj acted in 212 films. He directed 1 film, Jaani Dushman-57. He retired from work in 2000, but his last released film was Yaar meri zindgi-2008. Shivraj died on 4-6-2017.

There is also a name Arjun in the cast. Now this is a ‘ Same Name Confusion ‘ artiste. Arjun was the Hero in film Malhar-51, opposite actress Shammi (Nargis Rabadi). His name is confused with Music director C.Arjun and many people wrongly presume that C.Arjun acted in the film Malhar. This Arjun is different. His name was Arjun Bakshi Gill. His first film was Naujawan-51, then came Malhar-51.Later he acted in Daku ki Ladki-54 etc. He wrote screenplays and went on doing small roles in films. He migrated to Canada and opened a Music shop. A RMIM member met him there, and recognised Arjun as Malhar Hero. Arjun died in 2001. His daughter Jyoti Bakshi was also an actress, who died in pitiable condition in 2003.

Finally, let us take a look at dancer Cuckoo.

It was 1944. The talkies were already around for 15 years. Devika Rani and Shobana Samarth had already established their glowing presence but it was still a time when nice girls didn’t even become leading ladies, let alone do roles where they had to wriggle their hips — however tastefully — and bare flesh, which at the time meant shoulders and maybe a bit of leg. At such a time, a pretty, fresh-faced Anglo-Indian girl with eyes that danced as enchantingly as her feet appeared in two films — “Pehli Nazar”- 1945 (in which Mukesh made his debut with “Dil Jalta hai toh jalne de”) and “Mujrim -1944.” The girl’s name in the film’s credits was listed simply as “Cuckoo.” Cuckoo was perhaps the first of the most well known dancing queens of Indian Cinema. She was born on 4-2-1928. Her predecessors were many, including a dancer called Azurie, who it is said Cuckoo modeled herself on. But in terms of the sheer body of work and its impact, Cuckoo would have to be the first among Hindi cinema’s dancing queens. It was with her that “cabaret” became an almost indispensable part of films made between the 1950s and 1970s.

Her debut in 1944 was an instant hit and in the space of just the next five years, she had appeared in an incredible 49 films, including Mehboob Khan’s “Anokhi Ada” (1948), H. S. Rawail’s “Patanga” (1949) and Devendra Goel’s “Aankhen” (1950). The only major filmmaker of the time who did not feature Cuckoo in his films was V. Shantaram. In a lot of her films, her role was just a song but its impact was so electrifying that distributors considered it almost as indispensable as the heroine. Like the Helen-Asha combination later on, in many of these songs, Cuckoo’s screen `voice’ was Shamshad Begum. Together, they were responsible for some unforgettable hits.

Mehboob Khan’s films proved to be the turning points in Cuckoo’s career. Her dance numbers in hisAnokhi Ada established her as the leading dancer of the time; and Andaz, a romantic melodrama featuring Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, and Nargis, gave the dancer an opportunity to showcase her acting skills.During her peak period,she was getting Rs.6000/- per dance appearance.

Cuckoo remained the top dancer of Hindi films till she was displaced by Helen and such dancer-actresses as Vyjayanthimala.Cuckoo gave dances in about 76 films. Ironically, it was Cuckoo who had initiated a 13-year-old Helen into films as a chorus dancer.Cuckoo continued to dance until the beginning of the 1960s, the last few years as part of the chorus dancing.It has been recently confirmed that Cuckoo’s real name was Cuckoo Moray.Cuckoo died a slow lingering death, due to Cancer on 30-9-1981 penniless and unattended. No one from the Film industry attended her cremation. (Thanks for some information from Cineplot and from the book”Tujhe mere geet bulate hain” by Sanjeev Tanwar).

Today’s song is a delightful duet of Lata and Hemant Kumar. Let us now enjoy it….


Song-Nazron se chhup gaya hai taqdeer ka saweraa (Daaku Ki Ladki)(1954) Singer-Lata, Hemant Kumar , Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

nazron se ae
chhup gaya hai ae ae
taqdeer kaa aa savera

nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
ham rah gaye tadap kar
munh zindagi ne phera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera

duniya mein ham ye kaisi taqdeer le ke aaye
tukde dil-o-jigar ke
ashkon mein muskuraaye
hansti hai mujhpe kismat
rota hai pyaar meraa

girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera

aaja ki dil liye hai maayoosiyaan nazar mein
ek shamma jal rahi hai
teri yaad ki jigar mein
baaki hai har taraf ab chhaaya hua andhera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa
nazron se chhup gaya hai
taqdeer kaa savera
girta hai jo bhi aansu
leta hai naam teraa

This article is the 15900th song post for the blog

Blog Day :

4447 Post No. : 15900

So we reach another blog century with this post. This century materializes in 39 days, which appears like a fast century vis a vis the previous eleven centuries that took an average of 61 days each. These eleven centuries were took nearly two years (from August 2018 till July 2020). If we look at the rate of centuries ten years ago, then we had achieved a blog century on 20 september 2010 as well. That was the 30th century for the blog and that had been achieved in 17 days flat !. Eleven centuries (viz 20th century to 30th century were achieved at an average rate of 33 days per century.

The quickest rate of centuries were achieved during 2011 and 2012. Calendar year of 2012 saw 21 blog centuries, a record not surpassed since ! These 21 centuries were achieved at an average rate of one century every 18th day !

When I try to think about the by now barely believable rate of posts and centuries in the past, I can pinpoint a few reasons. And I also learn a few lessons from them.

Ten years ago, I was ten years younger. at that stage in my life, I was perhaps at the most productive and creative stage of my life. My enery level and motivation level were on a different plane. I also realise that my eyesight was still good and I did not need glasses to read fine prints. It was sometime in 2011 that I began to realise that my eyesight was going downhill. That is when I needed glasses for the first time. With that being the case, it was no longer possible for me to pore over the computer screen with the same comfort as before. This may be one reason why I hav slowed down. I need to take breaks from computer for the sake of my eyes, which was not the case prior to 2011.

Secondly, at that stage, I found it easy to wake up early in the morning and staying up late as well. My wife complained that I was neglecting my health by not getting enough sleep. Her constant nagging has finally had its effect on me. For the last two years, I no longer wake up at 5 AM in the morning and finish off six or seven posts for the day in three hours.

25 september 2011 was a crazy day when as many as 13 writeups were posted. First post appeared at 8:10 PM and the last post at 23:59 PM ! It means that I devoted the entire day at the computer doing nothing but posting articles all th time ! The same feat was repeated on 6 september 2012. The first post of the day appeared at 7:32 AM. The thirteenth and final post of the day appeared at 23:47 PM and that marked the 66th blog century for the blog !

Those were crazy days for the blog! The concepts of movies making their debuts, moving getting YIPPEED in the blog etc were not known. I did not have access to HFGK, so I was blissfully unaware if all the songs of a movie were covered in the blog. Unburdened by all these considerations, and helped by the fact that most well known songs of well known movies were still up for grabs, we had no problem finding sngs to discuss. All those songs, not yet dscovered were like low hanging fruits that were easy to pluck. We have dealt with all those low handing fruits and now we are dealing with songs that were relatively less popular and lesser known. I was gifted HFGK on july 2014 by our two Maharathi contributors Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Jee, on the occasion of the blog completing 10000th post. By that time, we were also on to concepts like individual artists centuries, blog contributors centuries etc. We had also evolved the concept of YIPPEE thanks to the ever enthusiastic Pradeep Raghunathan. All these factors meant that we had to do more research that before to locate specific songs that met specific requirements.

These days we are not able to score our centuries at Sehwag like rate (16-17 days) but even scoring centuries at test match rate is not bad. What matters is that the musical juggesrnaut keeps moving and does not remain stand still. We have managed to remain free of a DOT day in the blog for this entire calendar year 2020. There were three DOT days in 2019, 7 in 2018 and ZERO in 2017. So we have ben like a non stop musical bandwagon for the last four years with hardly any stoppages. And let us hope that it continues that way.

Another thing where we had managed to staay true to form is in the selection of our Century songs. We manage to come up with special songs for such special occasions. Seeing that we have had 158 Blog centuries so far, we have discussed 158 special songs on these occasions. 158 is not a small number by any stretch of imagination. One would need more than 8 hours to listen to these special songs !

The 15900th song of the blog is a special song as well. It is special because

(i) it is a rare and obscure song
(ii) the singer is also obscure, though she comes from a well known musical family
(iii) The song is one that has been reused in at least two movies, both obscure.

The song is from “Bhed”(1950). This movie was produced by Amba Cinetone(Jal K Baliwala Productions Bombay). That is all that HFGK contains for this movie. HFGK tells us that this movie had at least nine songs in it, may be more. Mukul Roy (brother of Geeta Roy, later Geeta Dutt) was the music director.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed so far. All these three songs were sung by Geeta Dutt.

Here is another song from “Bhed”(1950). Is it sung by Geeta Dutt ? No, it is sung by Lakshmi Roy, sister of Geeta Dutt. Geeta Dutt is a legendary singer in HFM, but her sister Lakshmi Roy has sung very few songs in HFM. Most of her songs are duets with other singers. This song is an axception. It is a solo song.

This song is penned by Madhukar Rajasthani.

I made another interesting discovery. Five songs from “Bhed” (1953) were later reused in “Do Bahaadur”(1953). Unlike “Bhed”(1950), details of starcast of “Do Bahaadur”(1953) is known. “Do Bahaadur”(1953) was produced by Nari Cawasji and drected by Baburao Pahalwan for Baghdad Pictures under supervision of Shantaram Athwale. The movie had John Cawas, Shanta Patel, Rohini, Dalpat, Goldstein, Rajni, Chitalkar, Dilawar, Baby Balo, Aziz Premi, Madhu Apte, Ali, Baburao Pahalwan etc in it.

This movie too had music by Mukul Roy. The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs were same as those of “Bhed”(1950). the sixth song was taken from “Ustaad Pedro”(1951).

Such cut and paste job for music did not help the cause of “Do Bahaadur”(1953). For that matter even “Bhed”(1950) is a rare and forgotten movie.

Coming to Lakshmi Roy, she married producer director Pramod Chakraborty. Unlike her unfortunate sister Geeta, she enjoyed a long and happy married life.

As the 15900th song of the blog, here is this rare and special song from “Bhed”(1950).

A blog century on 20 september 2010 and a blog century on 20 september 2020 as well. So we have mnaged to achieve a different kind of “Blog Ten Year Challenge” today with this post. 🙂

As we can see, we are now just one more century away from the magic 16000 mark. Here is hoping that we will not just reach that landmark but also reach many distant landmarks in future. I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement.

As discussed above, “Chhota Bhai”(1966) made its debut in the blog ten years ago on this day. That article was written by Raja.

Today as part of “Blog Ten Year Cahllenge”, here is another song from “Chhota Bhai”(1966). The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxnikant Pyarelal.

HFGK mentions this song as just one song. But the movie has this song in two versions-happy version and sad version. In both versions some unidentified voice can also be heard.
Both versions are lip synced by Nutan. Rehman, Mahesh Kumar and Lata Sinha can also be seen in both versions. Lalita Pawar is visible in the sad version.

Hullo Atuldom

“Ham Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke” (1993) had six songs, four of which are already on the blog as under,

Bambai Se Gayi Poona, Poona Se Gayi Dilli” – a wonderful post describing life at the various “pur”s and one “Nagar” and had 31 comments

Yoon Hi Kat Jaayega Safar Saath Chalne Se” – 3000th day of blog, post by Rajaji

Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se Dilbar Ka” – has a synopsis of the movie

and “Mujhse Muhabbat Ka Izhaar Karta“.

Here is the next one.

It is inside a garment Factory. Aamir Khan (Rahul) is trying to get his sister’s or jija’s factory running so that he can look after his niece and nephew/s who are not in a mood to accept him as their  guardian. To add to Rahul’s troubles the ladies working in the factory are in a mood to ‘rag’ their new boss. The songs were written by Sameer and tuned by Nadeem Shravan. It is sung by Kedarnath Bhattacharya popular as Kumar Sanu.

We are revisiting this movie to remember Tahir Hussain on his birth anniversary (19th September 1938- 10th february 2010) who was the producer of HHRPK (acronym of the movie). Incidentally Aamir Khan (hero of HHRPK) is his son and he was the main lead in two movies of TV Films, Tahir Hussain’s production house. Tahir Hussain, who was the brother of Nasir Hussain (maker of some classics of the 60s, 70s, 80s etc.) has classics like ‘Caravan’ (1971), ‘Anamika’ (1973), ‘Zakhmee’ (1975) etc. to his name as producer. He was the director of ‘Tum Mere Ho’ starring Aamir Khan in 1990.

20th September also happens to be the birth-date of the director of HHRPK -Mahesh Bhatt. He turns 72. He is known for movies that focused on relationships for example ‘Arth’, ‘Saransh’, even his initial ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ showed the relation between half-brothers played by Vinod Khanna and Danny almost like ‘Naam’ starring Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt. Mahesh Bhatt movies also had other regular Bollywood masala in it – action, emotion, drama and great music/ songs.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, so introducing another popular song that got very quickly reused in a subsequent film. This raunchy item number surprised everyone when it came out for the first time. The film is ‘Inkaar’ from 1977. It was cops and robbers story – B-grade cinema but it was done very professionally, giving some true insight into the normal working of the police force.

This song, which is performed by Helen in the film, became very popular in its time. And the wonder part of this song was / is the voice that has rendered it. The voice is of Usha Mangeshkar. One does not hear her voice in item numbers. Maybe part of a twin dance duet singing. But not an out and out item song. Somehow the selection of his voice for the setting clicked absolutely well. The setting of the song in the original film is a roadside tavern – a desi daaru ka adda. A counter for selling liquor and some chairs and tables for the clients to enjoy their glass that cheers. The dancer, Helen, is very much in the native Maharashtrian attire, wearing the dhoti in the typical lavangi style. The scenario, the persona – the singing voice suited everything to a T.

Fast forward to 1984. The film is ‘Andar Baahar’. This is another cops and robbers tale. Jackie Shroff is a police inspector who has lost his senior partner (role played by Parikshit Sahni) to the bullets of criminals. He vows revenge, and for that he takes permission to pull out a jailed criminal (role played by Anil Kapoor), and enrolls him as his partner, because he can identify the gangster boss. Anil Kapoor, who is a hardened criminal otherwise, has a difficult time adjusting to a role on the other side of the law. So within the very first one or two days, taking advantage of his newly given freedom, he disappears from Jackie Shroff’s home. Jackie is worried, on many counts, and sets out to search for him. Following his instincts he goes to the city red light area and his hunch is proved correct. Anil Kapoor is in a binge of drink and dance with a dancing girl of the area, role played by Jaishree T. And the song that is used in this scene is the iconic Usha Mangeshkar number, repeated from the film ‘Inkaar’.

The reuse is a direct replay without re-recording. The song duration is shorter because only one stanza of the song is utilized. Once again, being a repeat song, this does not appear in the Geet Kosh listings for the latter film. I have retained the credits for the song, from the original film – Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan. Incidentally the music director for the latter film is RD Burman.

So another popular song reused in a later film. I accidentally ran into this song, as I was searching for another video clip to complete another post. The song “Hum Ko To Yaari Se Matlab Hai” from film ‘Andar Baahar’ has a sad version that was not getting located. I played thru the film in fast forward mode. It was a short clip but I was able to locate it. In the process, the bonus was the discovery of this repeat song that would have otherwise not been located, as it is not listed. A good chance discovery.

Song –  Tu..u..u Mungdaa, Mungdaa Main Gud Ki Dhali  (Andar Baahar) (1984) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

tu..u..u
mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
tu..u..u
mungdaa ha mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali

aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
aashiq apna
mungdaa mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali

तू॰॰ऊ॰॰ऊ
मूंगड़ा मूंगड़ा
मैं गुड़ की डली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली
तू॰॰ऊ॰॰ऊ
मूंगड़ा मूंगड़ा
मैं गुड़ की डली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली
मंगता है तो आ जा रसिया
नाहीं तो मैं ये चली

आपस की चाल
देखे तो लुट जाये
आपस की चाल
देखे तो लुट जाये
तू जिस पे नैना डाल
हाथों से प्याला सटक जाये
तू जिस पे नैना डाल
हाथों से प्याला सटक जाये
आशिक अपना मूंगड़ा
मूंगड़ा मूंगड़ा
मैं गुड़ की डली
कैसा मुल्गा है रे शर्मिला
तुझसे तो मुल्गी भली
कैसा मुल्गा है रे शर्मिला
तुझसे तो मुल्गी भली
