My first real jaan-pehchaan with this actor happened in 1970. The film – ‘Anand’. He plays the role of Dr. Prakash Kulkarni, friend of Dr. Bhaskar Bannerji (Amitabh Bachchan). His role was impressive and touching. At the climax of the film, when Anand is battling for his last breaths, Bhaskar is not present. He has gone on a last ditch hunt for a miracle medicine. Prakash is the doctor present in the room besides Renu (Sumita Sanyal), attending to Anand. It is 4.15 early morning.The final moments arrive. Anand requests for the spool tape player to be put on. Prakash realizes – the worst is about to happen. He asks the attending nurse to prepare an injection. And while the tape is playing Anand calls out for Babu Moshai, and his breathing ceases. Prakash is stunned and cannot move. There is horror and grief and dejection writ large on his face. These moments, this expression, the welling of tears in his eyes, and the unwilling acceptance of a final defeat – left an imprint on my mind strong enough to now remember the name of this actor – Ramesh Deo.

And then, the familiar face with now a recognized name – I could see him in many more films that followed. I would also become familiar with his earlier roles in Hindi films starting with ‘Aarti’ in 1962. I would see these earlier films, later as reruns or on Doordarshan. And somehow, he always made an impact on my mind with his performances. In ‘Khilona’ (1970), as Kishore, the wayward ghar-jamaai (resident son-in-law) of the Thakur Suraj Singh’s (Bipin Gupta) household, he is hell bent on throwing out a pregnant Chand (Mumtaz) for obvious inheritance gains. In 1971, one sees him in ‘Mere Apne’ as Arun Gupta, a low middle income householder, who tricks an aged Anandi Devi (Meena Kumari) to come and live in his home as an unpaid full time servant. In ‘Joru Ka Ghulam’ (1972), he is Ramesh, the scheming nephew of the rich businessman Shyamlal (Om Prakash), who continuously siphons off part of whatever money he handles in the business.

Then in ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), he plays the role of barrister P Amarnath, one of the three baddies (along with Harishchandra (Ajit) and Ramakant (Krishan Dhawan)), who commit a fraud at a bank and implicate Ashok (Dharmendra). Later, when Ashok returns and plans revenge against these three, he first destroys them financially through stock market wrangling. At this point in the film, there is a scene with an excellent performance by Ramesh Deo. As the news comes in that all their investment is lost at the stock market, it effects the brain of barrister Amarnath, and he goes mad. There is a two minutes long sequence with an editing gap of 15 seconds in between, which is performed by him. He goes mad, he cries, he laughs, he proclaims he wants to be rich, and then he runs out of the office room. He meets Ashok outside. Ashok is supposedly dead. So there is now a reaction of fear and horror, he runs away from him, crashes into a parked car, then runs off on to the road and is hit by another car. This sequence which is about 700 feet of reel length is supposedly shot as a single performance sequence. His histrionics are impressive and authentic.

Ramesh Deo, a veteran of almost 300 Hindi films, about 200 Marathi films, 30 Marathi stage plays with almost a thousand live performances – passed away on 2nd February earlier this year. Besides the impressive portfolio of stage and screen performances, he also has to his credit being the producer of many TV serials, documentaries and approximately 250 ad films through his own production company – Ramesh Deo Productions. A part of this body of work was also directed by him.

He traces his ancestry to the Rajput clans of Jodhpur. His great grandfather and grandfather were engineers who were part of the team that built the Jodhpur palace. Later they were invited by Shahu Maharaj of Kolhapur, for constructing newer parts of the city. His grandfather was appointed as the chief engineer of the project. Later, his father, who studied law, became the legal advisor in the city administration of Kolhapur.

Ramesh was born in Kolhapur on 30th January, 1926. After his normal school and college education, he got introduced to films through Dinkar Patel, a Marathi film maker, who was a family friend. Once when Dinkar Patel was filming in Kolhapur, Ramesh and a group of his friends went to see the shooting. Quite unexpectedly, Dinkar Patel invited the group to join a scene in a college sequence being filmed, as students. The film was ‘Paatlachi Por’ (released in 1951). As per Ramesh, it was by this chance participation that the film bug bit him, and he decided to make acting as a career. This is in 1950.

He started his career as a junior artist and soon graduated to featured roles. His first notable performance that received critical acclaim was as a villain in ‘Andhala Magto Ek Dola’ (1956). Later, he signed up as a villain for ‘Saata Janmaachaa Sobati’, but was offered the lead instead when the hero was removed. Never typecast, many of his films’ publicity material would have a teaser asking audiences to guess whether he was the hero or villain!

Through the 1950s, Ramesh confined himself to Marathi cinema and stage, Then happened a chance encounter. The drama troupe he was working with was traveling in the rural Maharashtra. Having tea at a roadside tea shop, he realized that no one knew him as an actor. He felt let down within, that after having worked in the industry for almost a decade, he was a nobody for the common man. The same common man would readily recognize and acknowledge Hindi film stars. And he made up his mind to move to Hindi cinema also.

His first role in a Hindi film was in ‘Aarti’ 1962. And after that there was no looking back. In film after film in the sixties, he made a mark for himself, and a firm position in the Hindi film industry as a character artist. At 96, when he passed away, he was still actively working. In a manner of speaking, he died literally with his boots on.

The song being presented today is from the film ‘Love And Murder’ from 1966. The film is produced under the banner of Adarshlok, Bombay and is directed by Raja Paranjape. The brief star cast is listed as Prithviraj, Ramesh Deo, Jaimala, Heeralal, Helen, Kammo, Edwina, and Chandrakant Gokhale. Ramesh Deo plays the role of Ranjit, apparently a small time con-man, but in reality he is the unknown boss of the underworld gang. The plot of the film is available on MuVyz website at Love And Murder – Plot.

On screen, the song is performed by Ramesh Deo. The quality of the video is not very good, and I am not able to identify the lady companion for whom Ramesh is lip syncing this song. I request other knowledgeable readers to please help identify the lady actor in this video clip.

Ramesh Deo – a lasting presence in Marathi and Hindi cinema. A career that goes from 1950 to 2022. Seventy two years of active work in the cinema and theater industry – this must be a record of some sort. He had completed 96 years of his life’s journey when he bid the forever good bye to the world. As mentioned earlier, literally with his boots on – still actively working when he passed away.

He leaves behind his wife and two sons. Seema Deo, his spouse of 59 years, is a lasting romance of his life. This must also be a record of some sorts – the two appeared in more than 50 films as husband wife or as lovers. Ramesh had first seen her in a suburban train while heading to a studio and realized that she too was looking for film work. “That day, I got a plum assignment. We introduced ourselves, became friends, and soon got married,” he had said. Today, their children, actor-filmmaker Ajinkya Deo and filmmaker Abhinay Deo (‘Delhi Belly’) have done them proud.

Peace and divinity be with you Ramesh Deo. It has been an especially long innings. You will always be remembered for the huge variety of roles that you presented.

Good Bye.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 49
————————————————————————————–

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’.

This movie is eligible for representation on the blog today as one of its’ songs was posted ten years back on 02.06.2012.

This day (2 June) that year (in 2012) saw as many as five posts on the blog as per details given below.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Sur saritey kalyaanmayi Prabhu Ki Maaya(1955) 5 of 9 songs posted
Bahut aasaan hai chilman se lagkar muskuraana Rangeen Raatein(1956) All songs covered
Bahut purdard hai ye sunanewaalon Birha Ki Raat(1950) All songs covered
Khudaara yoon dil naa todo Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai(1966) 4 of 7 songs posted
Ye pyaar thhaa ya kuchh aur thhaa Prem Rog(1982) 4 of 6 songs posted

Out of the five movies mentioned above all songs of two movies viz. ‘Rangeen Raatein-1956’ and ‘Birha Ki Raat-1950’ have been covered. That leaves with us three movies viz. ‘Prabhu Ki Maaya-1955’, ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’ and ‘Prem Rog-1982’ that still offers us songs that are yet to be covered.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’. I had not watched this movie and I don’t remember whether I have listened to the songs of this movie except one song ‘nange baazu nangi raanen husn ka ye meyar nahin’, a song that I became aware of when it was posted on the blog.

When our dear Prakash ji sent the lyrics for the remaining songs of this movie I decided to take them, and also become aware about this movie and its songs.

‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai-1966’ was directed by R.K. Nayyar for ‘R.K. Nayyar Films, Bombay’. It was a social movie.

This movie had Ashok Kumar, Joy Mukherjee, Sayra Bano, Motilal, Sayeeda Khan, Madan Kumar, Shyam Chatterjee, Mohsin Abdulla, Badri Prasad, Manmohan and others.

This movie had seven songs (including one multiple version song*) as detailed in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

Lyrics for all the songs of this movie are written by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Ravi.

The list of the songs of this movie is as given below.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Pehle aankh ladaayiye Mohd Rafi 07.05.2012
02 Khudaara yoon dil naa todo Mohd Rafi 02.06.2012
03 Dekho ye deewaana, roz ek kahaani ek fasaana sunaana chaahta hai Asha Bhonsle
04 Nange baazu nangi raanen husn ka ye meyaar nahin Mohd Rafi 27.10.2021
05 Khudaara yoon dil naa todo Asha Bhonsle 02.06.2012
06 Jeene ka agar andaaz aaye to kitni haseen hai zindagi Asha Bhonsle 08.03.2012
07 Koyi aankh milaa ke dekhe, koyi pyaar jataa ke dekhe Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today

*After going through the above list we have something to correct on the statistics of the blog. We need to correct the total number of songs posted to five instead of four, as we have already covered the multiple version song ‘khudaara yoon dil naa todo’.
That gives us only two songs from this movie to be covered on the blog. (It took me sometime to clear this confusion as Prakash ji had sent lyrics for three songs to be covered.
However, the song ‘muhabbat rang laayegi haseena maan jaayegi’ has also been covered and it is the same song which starts with the lines – ‘pehle aankh ladaayiye, phir aage badhh jaayiye’ (Prakash ji – kindly note please)).

That brings us to today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sayeeda Khan is seen performing on this songs with many other female artists, including Saira Bano.

As mentioned above lyrics for today’s song are by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by Ravi.

Let us enjoy today’s song now …

Song-Koi aankh milaa ke dekhe (Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai)(1966) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

koyi aankh milaa ke dekhe
koyi pyaar jataa ke dekhe
dilwaalon leke aayi hoon main
ankhiyon ke baan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

pyaar mein jeenewaale laakhon
marnewaala koyi naa
pyaar mein jeenewaale laakhon
marnewaala koyi naa
ishq di khaatir jaan ka saudaa
karnewaala koyi naa
dilwaale to ek adaa pe hote hain qurbaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

deewaana to pyaar karegaa
zulfon ki zanjeer se ae
deewaana to pyaar karegaa
zulfon ki zanjeer se
paa legaa wo manzil apni
ek nazar ke teer se
ishq mein jaan bachaanewaale
hote hain naadaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

jeenewaala kya jaane jo
marne mein aaraam hai ae
jeenewaala kya jaane jo
marne mein aaraam hai
dopahar ki garmi se to
achchhi thhandi shaam hai
ghaayal ho ja ho jaayegi
har mushqil aasaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi aankh milaa ke dekhe
koyi pyaar jataa ke dekhe
dilwaalon leke aayi hoon main
ankhiyon ke baan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan
koyi hai jo aake rakh de
nishaane pe jaan

This is the tale of a Hindi film director whose first film he wrote and directed, became a super hit. Unfortunately, he also reached the pinnacle of his career as a director with his very first film. The reason was that none of his subsequent films could achieve the same scale of successes as was with his first film. He was associated with Hindi films as a director for nearly 3 decades, but he directed only 6 films. During the same period, he also produced 3 films. His name was Ram Krishna Nayyar, better known in Hindi film industry as R K Nayyar. In my view, he was a director whose expertise was in directing films in the genre of romantic mystery thriller.

Not much information is known about R K Nayyar’s early life. He started his filmi career as an assistant to Raj Kapoor in ‘Aah’ (1953) and to Prakash Arora in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954). He made his debut as a director in Sashadhar Mukerji’s ‘Love in Simla’ (1960). The film became super hit at the box office with debutant lead actors, Joy Mukerji and Sadhana. It is said that R K Nayyar was instrumental in suggesting the fringe hair style which Sadhana used in this film to hide her broad forehead. Her hairstyle became so popular that it became known as ‘Sadhana Cut’.

R K Nayyar’s next directorial venture came after a gap of 3 years in ‘Ye Raasten Hain Pyaar Ke’ (1963). This film was based on the famous Nanavati-Ahuja case of 1959. But the film was only moderately successful. He next directed Sashadhar Mukerji’s ‘Aao Pyaar Karen’ (1964) with Joy Mukerji and Saira Bano in the lead roles. The film did not click on the box office despite having a good musical score by Usha Khanna.

In 1966, R K Nayyar married Sadhana. In the same year, he released his first film as a producer-director, ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai’ (1966) under his own banner, R K Nayyar Films. It was a high budget film with a major part of shooting taking place in Europe. The film did not fare well on the box office front.

Once again after a gap of 3 years, R K Nayyar directed ‘Intaqaam’ (1969) which was produced under the banner of Shaktiman Enterprises with Sadhana and Sanjay Khan in the lead roles. It was a ‘come back’ film for Sadhana after she had some medical issues. ‘Intaqaam’ (1969) was a hit film which should have revived the career of R K Nayyar. But it took him as long as 17 years to direct his next film. ‘Qatl’ (1986) which he also produced. It was his last film as a director. After this, he produced his last film. ‘Pati Parmeshwar’(1989) under R K Nayyar banner but entrusted Madan Joshi, his assistant to direct the film. Both these films flopped at the box office.

I was wondering as to why R K Nayyar had gaps in his filmi career. I got the answer from a rare interview which Sadhana had given sometime in 2012. R K Nayyar had lost a lot of money when his films. ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai’ (1966), ‘Qatl’ (1986) and ‘Pati Parmeshwar’ (1989) flopped at the box office. Loans were to be repaid. Sadhana had almost withdrawn from the films after her persistent medical issues. All these put R K Nayyar in financial crunches affecting his own health. He had become an asthma patient which later became the reason for his death in 1995.

As mentioned earlier, ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai’ (1966) was R K Nayyar’s first film as a producer-director under his own banner, R K Nayyar Films. The star cast included Ashok Kumar, Joy Mukerji, Saira Bano, Motilal, Sayeeda Khan, Hari Shivdasani, Badri Prasad, Mohshin Abdullah, Janakidas, Manmohan etc. The film was a romantic thriller with some good songs. But the film failed to sustain audience’s interest to make it a box office hit film. It is said that the film’s complicated plot with Saira Bano playing the double role with the same name and Joy Mukerji playing imposter confused the average cinema audience.

The film had 7 songs (including one multiple version) of which 4 songs (including one multiple version) have been covered on the Blog. All the songs are written by Rajinder Krishan and set to music by Ravi.

I am presenting the 5th song, ‘nange baazoo nangi taange husn ka ye meyyar nahi’ from the film to appear on the Blog which is sung by Mohammed Rafi. It is picturised on Joy Mukerji when he and Saira Bano are on a visit to Paris for participating in Mr Universe and Miss Universe, respectively.

I was not aware of this song until I heard this song a couple of days back. What invited my attention to this song was the unusual mukhda for a Hindi film song. There are other unusual features of the song:

In the film sound track version, the song starts with antara, ‘tera badan hai raaj khuda kaa’ followed by mukhda, ‘nange baazoo nangi taange’ as a refrain. This is because Joy Mukerji responds in song when Saira Bano says –“kya main ladki nahi hoon?, kya main haseen nahi hoon?” Furthermore, there are 4 antaras in the film sound track version of the song. In the record version, the song starts with mukhda followed by only two antaras – 1st and 4th of the film sound track song probably to accommodate the song within the space of a 78 RPM record.

In the film sound track version, the mukhda is ‘nange baazoo nangi TAANGE’. However, in the record version, mukhda is ‘nange baazoo nangi RAANEN’. ‘Raanen’ is a Urdu word which means ‘thighs’.

In the lyrics, some other unusual Urdu words have been used as under:

Meyaar= Standard, Measurement

Paash= Sprinkle

Khoo-e-uriyaani= Habit of nakedness

Enjoy the song with Mohammed Rafi intoxicatingly singing ‘beemaar’ in the song.

Blog Day :

Today 26th September’2021 is the thirty-secondth Remembrance Anniversary of Legendary Singer and Music Director of yesteryears Hemant Kumar.

Hemant Kumar Mukhopadhyay was born on 16th June 1920 at Benaras, Benaras State under British India.

He passed away on 26th September 1989 at the age of sixty-nine.

As a fan of Hemant Kumar’s voice, I had always liked his singing and his compositions that he has given us in the Hindi Film Music. He also sang in many regional languages including my mother tongue – ‘Marathi’. Ravindra Sangeet sung by him in ‘Bengali language’ is an immortal gift he left for all music connoisseurs.

Here, I am not going to mention his long list of achievements and the various awards and felicitations he received in his career in Music.

Today, as a tribute to him on his ‘Remembrance Day’ I would like to present a song from the 1966 movie – ‘Biwi Aur Makaan’. I had noted this song long back i.e., in 2013 however it still remained to be posted. Later, I tried to get it posted on anniversary of Gulzar and Hemant Kumar, but it could not succeed.

It is a ‘saawan song’ and though the ‘saawan’ month is behind us by now, we still have ‘showers’ continuing in some parts. This song will join the ‘saawan song’ club where we have more than hundred songs already posted.

I became aware of today’s song long back when I was in my ‘teens’. I think I listened to it for the first time on ‘All India Radio’ Urdu service program. After that when I started collecting music ‘cassettes’ I got this song in the ‘Vintage Favorites – Hemant Kumar’ brought by HMV in 1986. I have earlier given the details of other songs in this compilation in my post on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today we are revisiting a movie that released in 1966 and was directed by J B H Wadia. The songs were all written by D.N. Madhok and C Ramchandra was the music director. It had 8 songs of which only 2 are on the blog. These are the ones posted:

Song Remarks
Duniya banaane waale ne post by Sudhirji marking 4200th post of the blog and has a lot of info about the actor Sajjan.
Tasveer bhi dekhi thhi this is also a post by Sudhirji.

Interesting notes are present in this second post about how C Ramchandra and D N Madhok have collaborated only twice (before this movie) and that too in the beginning of their careers.

Both these posts provide links to Memsaab’s blog and the synopsis/ review to the movie. BTW I forgot to mention that we are revisiting “Tasweer”.
As I sat to write this post my aim was to look for movies starring Zulfiqar Ali Shah Khan whose birthday falls on 25th September. He would have turned 82. I was paying particular attention to movies at the start of his career. I stumbled on a few movies where he had made uncredited appearances and the songs associated with them. I found that most of his initial songs are already present on the blog. I also found the song which was his absolute first appearance. I looked up for the song on the blog and also posted a comment pointing to the actor’s presence (that is the reason for my noticing that detail Nahmji).

I am sure the followers of the blog have figured out that I am talking of the very handsome, smart, fashionable, uber-cool icon of Bollywood. An actor, who in the later half of his career made super cool movies which were all phenomenal successes. His movies were peppered with great music, action and emotions. He had a special liking for the Cow-Boy getup. We are remembering Feroz Khan today. Sudhirji’s post of 2017 gives us a lot of insight on Feroz ‘stylish’ Khan and his career, I am sure I can’t better it.

Today’s song see him dance with Helen. We have Kalpana sitting, getting sad and shedding a tear and Sajjan (in a french beard) as part of the audience.

Song-Nazar badli zamaane ki (Tasveer)(1966) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-C Ramchandra
Chorus

Lyrics

nazar badli zamaane ki
na tum badle

wahi hai dil (lara lara)
wahi armaan (lara lara)
wahi wade mohabbat ke (laa laa laa)

jhatak de tu agar gesu
toh yeh mehfil mehek jaaye
jhatak de tu agar gesu
toh yeh mehfil mehek jaaye
tere nazron se takraaye
toh saaghar bhi behek jaaye
na badli woh adaa teri
na zulfon ke makam badle
wahi hai dil
wahi armaan
wahi wade mohabbat ke
(chorus)
nazar badli zamaane ki (lara lara)
na tum badle (lara lara)
na hum badle (lara lara)
wahi hai dil (lara lara)
wahi armaan (lara lara)
wahi wade mohabbat ke (laa laa laa)

tumhaara naam sunte hi
dhadak jaataa hai dil ab bhi
tumhaara naam sunte hi
dhadak jaataa hai dil ab bhi
jo naghma tumne chheda thha
wo dohraata hai dil ab bhi
mile bichhde huye phir se
agar nazrein karam badle
wahi hai dil
wahi armaan
wahi waade mohabbat ke
(chorus)
nazar badli zamaane ki (lara lara)
na tum badle (lara lara)
na hum badle (lara lara)
wahi hai dil (lara lara)
wahi armaan (lara lara)
wahi wade mohabbat ke (laa laa laa)

Hullo Atuldom

“Biwi Aur Makaan” (1966) had songs written by Gulzar, which were tuned by Hemant Kumar. It had 10 or 11 songs that were in the voices of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar, Mohd. Rafi etc. The movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and produced by Hemant Kumar. Dialogues (the crux of any comedy movie) were by Rajinder Singh Bedi. Mehmood and Biswajeet headed a cast which also had Kalpana, Shabnam, Padma Khanna, Keshto Mukherjee, Bipin Gupta, Ashish Kumar etc.

The movie was the remake of a Bengali film “Joy Maa Kali Boarding” and an inspiration for the Marathi hit of the ’80s ‘Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi”. In Telugu it was made as “Chitram Bhalare Vichitram”. It has been made in Kannada, Tamil and the story was so inspiring that it had remakes in Bengali in 2017, Punjabi 2014 and Hindi 2009.

The story was of four bachelors who migrate from their villages to the big city. While attempting to access accomodation, they are repeatedly told that rooms will only be rented to married couples, not to bachelors. Frustrated at this, two of them disguise themselves as women, and pose as wives for the other two males. They are able to secure accommodation with the Mishra family. Complications arise when the two “women” fall in love with Mishra’s two lovely daughters – with results that can only be described as hilarious. Keshto Mukherjee’s act ad facial expression as ‘Badi Bahu’ and Biswajeet as the beautiful ‘Choti Bahu’ should be seen at least once. Of course, it was Mehmood’s timing that was the highlight of the film.

The following three songs from the movie are already on the blog:

Song Date of post Post by
Dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi 23 June 2009 (by Atulji)
Jaane kahaan dekha hai 2 June 2014 (by Sudhirji)
Mujhe mohabbat ho gayi hai 22 December 2016 (by Maheshji)

I had commented to the song “dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi” in 2017 after seeing the Marathi version of this movie about how Ashok Saraf matched Mehmood (imho) and Sachin looked as pretty as Biswajeet in the guise of a lady.

We are having this song today to wish the poet-lyricist-author-director- producer- screenwriter Sampooran Singh Kalra a.k.a Gulzar on turning a year older. He was born in 1934 in Dina of Jhelum district which is in present day Pakistan. He is married to actress Rakhee and has a daughter Meghana who is also a director of movies like ‘Filhaal’, ‘Raazi’, Chhapaak’ and such other non-run-of-the-mill movies.

Gulzar (who initially worked under the name Gulzar Deenvi) started his music career with SD Burman in the 1963 classic ‘Bandini’ and worked with many music directors like Salil Chowdhury, Vishal Bhardwaj, A.R. Rehman etc. Can one forget the songs that his pairing with RD Burman gave lovers of Bollywood music. He is a winner of the Padma Bhushan, Sahitya Academy award and Dadasaheb Phalke award. He is a 5 time National award, one Academy award (Oscars) and Grammy too in addition to innumerable Filmfare awards.

It would be a ‘chota munh aur badi baat’ (holding a candle to the sun) kind of situation if I attempt writing anything on such an accomplished personality. So, let us get to today’s song and Just wish our favourite writer/ lyricist/ producer/ director/ screenwriter/ poet a healthy and peaceful time ahead.

Song-Aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin (Biwi Aur Makaan)(1966) Singers-Usha Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics(Based on Audio link)

aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
na main soyi na jaagi sataao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

kaun thha
kaisa thha
bataao naa
koi anjaan si ek pehchaan thhi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
koi anjaan si ek pehchhan thi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
na main boli
na main jaagi
sirf saanson ki awaaz aati rahi
ek aaghosh mein kaid thhi raat bhar
lo bata toh diya sataao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
na jali main
na bujhi main
mere honthon pe saawan baraste rahe
shokh malta raha sediyaan raat bhar
lo bata toh diya ab sataao nahin
jaao jaao hamein yoon banaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupaao nahin

As many as 104 of these 133 songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 49 movies of 1966 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 33 movies are already covered. So we only have 29 Lata songs belonging to 16 movies of 1966 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Chhota Bhai”(1966). This social movie was directed by K P Atma for Olympic Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nutan, Rehman, Mahesh Kumar, Lalita Paar, Nazeer Hussain, Jageerdar, Randheer, Sulichana, Chatterjee etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it, including four Lata Mangeshkar songs- all being solos. Three songs from the movie (including two Lata Mangeshkar songs) have been covered in the past.

Here is the third Lata Mangeshkar song from “Chhota Bhai”(1965). Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. Going by the picturisation of the other Lata songs in the movie, the song is undoubtedly lip synced by Nutan. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Diya jaage saari raina nindiya na aaye (Chhota Bhai)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

diyaa jaage saari rainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
raah takey vyaakul nainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

sapnaa nahin koi sang kiran ke
geet nahin koi paas pavan ke
aa aa aa aa
sapnaa nahin koi sang kiran ke
soye bhalaa kaise phool chaman ke ae
taaron kaa bhi hai yahi kehnaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

lallaa lalaa lori gaake sunaaun
main apni palakon kaa palanaa banaaun
aa aa aa aa
lallaa lalaa lori gaake sunaaun
mai teri nindiyaa ko kaise bulaaun
teri tarah vo bhi maane na kehnaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
diyaa jage saari rainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

Hullo Atuldom

4th January is the 90th birth anniversary of the on-screen mother of Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Dharmendra, and a few heroines too. She mostly played mother to heroes, at least that is what my personal experience was, fed as I was on movies of the ’70s and ’80s.

But that is not how she began her career. Our in-house encyclopedia whom I prefer calling Guruji has written a post and also in a few of his comments to other posts on the blog that she has played comic characters and stunt roles too in addition to playing Goddesses in mythologicals after having made her debut as heroine in movies of the late ’40s and continuing to play central characters through the ’50s and early ’60s. In post of his Atulji has commented about a 44 year old Nirupa Roy (who this post is dedicated to) playing mother to a 38 year old Shashi Kapoor and 34 year old Amitabh Bachchan who incidentally played the older son.

“Laadla” (1966) had seven songs of which the blog has four songs. One of the songs posted thus far is a two part song and shows Nirupa Roy sing a lullaby to a baby in a pram who grows up to be Sudhir Kumar (of ‘Dosti’ fame). Today’s song show her on a train journey and making her son comfortable on the berth of the compartment. This must have been the first class coach of yore which used to have a lot of space and private washroom etc.; this I am deducing from all the train scenes of old time movies that I have grown up seeing. Personally I have never experienced that luxury, but that is not the matter of this post.

Today’s song has Lata Mangeshkar giving playback to Nirupa’s atma ki awaaz (voice of conscience) and the charming actress shows her distress so well. Heard this song for the first time as I wrote it out for the post and like what Rajinder Krishan has written and Laxmi-Pyare have composed.

Song-Kaun tujhko maa kahega (Laadla)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisiki maa nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin

phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai ae ae
phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai
teri hasti tera darza
teri hasti tera darza
toh fakat maali ka hai
jhhooth ko sach kar dikhaana
iss kadar aasaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin

soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
tu kisi ke aansuon se
tu kisi ke aansuon se
apna munh dhoti hai kyun
jo khushi chheene kisi ki
woh koi insaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin
maa nahin

Mohammed Rafi – 96th birth anniversary

—– Waqt ——-

Yeh waqt kya hai
yeh kya hai aakhir ke jo musalsal guzar raha hai
yeh jab na guzra thha
tab kahan thha
guzar gayaa hai to ab kahan hai
kahin to hogaa
kahan se aaya kidhar gayaa hai
yeh kab se kab tak ka silsilaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai
yeh waqi’ye
haadse
tasaadum
harek gham
aur har ek masarrat
har ek azziyat
har ek lazzat
har ik tabassum
har ek aansoo
har ek naghma
har ek khushboo
woh zakhm ka dard ho
ko ho lams ka jaadoo
khud apni awaaz ho ki mahaul ki sadaayen
yeh zehan mein banti aur bigadti hui fazaayen
woh fikr mein aaye zalzale hon ki dil ki halchal
tamaam ehsaas
saare jazbe
ye jaise patte hain
behte paani ki sateh par
jaise tayrte hain
abhi yehaan hain
abhi wahaan hain
aur ab hain ojhal
dikhaayi detaa nahin hai lekin
yeh kuchh to hai
jo ki beh rahaa hai
yeh kaisa dariya hai
kin pahaadon se aa rahaa hai
yeh kis samandar ko jaa rahaa hai

yeh waqt kya hai
kabhi kabhi main yeh sochtaa hoon
ki chalti gaadi se ped dekho
to aisa lagtaa hai
doosri simt jaa rahe hain
magar haqueeqat mein
ped apni jagah khade hain
to kya yeh mumkin hai
saarisadiyaan
qataar-andar-qataar apni jagah khadi hon
yeh waqt saakit ho
aur ham hi guzar rahe hon
is ek lamhe mein
saare lamhe
tamaam sadiyaan chhupi hui hon
na koyi ‘aayinda
na guzishtaa
jo ho chukaa hai
jo ho rahaa hai
jo hone waala hai
ho rahaa hai
main sochtaa hoon
ki kya yeh mumkin hai
sach ye ho
ki safar mein ham hain
guzarte ham hain
jise samajhte hain ham
guzarta hai
wo thhamaa hai
guzarta hai ye thhamaa huaa hai
ik aayi hai ye bataa huaa hai
hai munjamid
yaa pighal rahaa hai
kise khabar hai
kise pataa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

yeh kaaynaat-e-azeem
lagtaa hai
apni azmat se
aaj bhi mutma’een nahin hai
ki lamha lamha woh
wasee’a-tar aur wasee’a-tar hoti jaa rahi hai
yeh apni baahen pasaarti hai
yeh kehkashaaon ki ungliyon se
nayi khalaaon ko chhoo rahi hai
agar yeh sach hai
to har tasavvur ki had se baahar
magar kahin par
yaqeenan aisa koyi khalaa hai
ki jis ko
in kehkashaaon ki ungliyon ne
ab tak chhuaa nahin hai
khalaa
jahaan kuchh huaa nahin hai
khalaa
ki jis ne kisi se bhi ‘kun’ sunaa nahin hai
jahaan abhi tak khudaa nahinhai
wahan
koyi waqt bhi na hogaa
ye kaayenaat-e-azeem
ik din
chhuegi
is an-chhuye khalaa ko
aur apne saare wajood se
jab pukaaregi
‘kun’
to waqt ko bhi janam milegaa
agar janam hai to maut bhi hai

main sochtaa hoon
yeh sach nahin hai
ki waqt ki koyi ibtidaa hai na intehaa hai
yeh dor lambi bahot hai
lekin
kahin to is dor ka siraa hai
abhi yeh insaan ulajh rahaa hai
ki waqt ke is qafas mein
paida huaa
yahin woh palaa badhaa hai
magar use ‘ilm ho gayaa hai
ke waqt ke iss qafas se baahar bhi ik fazaa hai
to sochtaa hai
vo puchhtaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

– Javed Akhtar –

I had heard a part of the above poem and just decided to reproduce it in a post. But while typing the whole saga, it lost me on the way to the end. I am able to understand it word to word, but to understand what exactly Javedsahab is trying to say or ‘in ke kehne ka tatparya kya hai’, I will have to go deep. Or maybe not so deep and what he says is what he means.
______________________________________________

This terrible year is coming to an end. Human kind has endured a test of psychological strength this year. And has learned (hopefully) that even if places of worship are not open, the Almighty is reachable from anywhere, for the universe, the world and its occupants, owners and tenants, wheelers and dealers, the powerful and the poor, the destitute and the able bodied, are all His creations. The ‘khalaa’ that Javed Akhtar refers to in the poem above, is also the creation of the Almighty creator. So is the concept if ‘waqt’. Whether it is running away from you or towards you. The time is allotted to us, to live on this earth peacefully with other creations. Before I move on, ‘khalaa’ is space, in worldly terms is means ‘empty space’ and in celestial terms it is infinite.

Its Mohammed Rafi Sahab’s 96th birth anniversary on 24/12/2020. Usually for Rafi sahab’s anniversary posts, or for the century posts, Raja ji is invited to do the honors of writing a special post. But I am seizing the opportunity, this time round. It is Rafi Sahab birth anniversary post as well as the 3100th songs post by Rafi sahib on the blog. This post is also my 300th song post, so a special Rafi song is called for this occasion.

Two months ago, I was looking for a song by Usha Timothy to post for her birthday on 8th October. I found a song by her, but it turned out to be a group song. The audio clip was 11 minutes long. The song itself is more than 9 minutes. Myswar.com listed this as a two part song one by Suman Kalyanpur and Usha Timothy and another by Mohammad Rafi and Manna Dey. It is from the 1966 film “Sunehre Kadam” and is composed by Bulo C. Rani. The lyricist is Nyay Sharma.

This is a very special song I have come to realize it while writing the lyrics. I will have to list them so that I don’t miss any points:

1. It has the longest solo rally, for a group song by Rafi sahab and large part of this rally is with minimal music.
2. This must be the only song with these four singers together.
3. The way the repetition of lines is done throughout the song, with singing of the same line in a different way. This is especially true of Rafi sahab’s repeated lines and also Manna De’s. In Rafi sahab’s songs, invariably it can be taken for granted, that the repetition of lines will have variations.
4. The song is a like a relay race, and the one starting it is doing the winner’s lap, with the trophy.

Actually Manna De has a small part to sing but Usha Timothy is having very few lines to sing. Seeing the video was a surprise again. It is a competition sort of song with two artists performing on stage and singing is done by Agha in Rafi’s voice and Shashi Kala in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Rehman is seen standing next to Agha and enjoying his singing, so is a female standing next to Shashi Kala similarly amused by the song. The expressions of quite enjoyment on Rehman’s face can be described perfectly in one word, i. e. “Mehzooz”.

A comment on youtube said that this song based on raag zhinjhoti/maanjhkhamaj. Whether it is true or not, the song does sound unique and stand out as a song to be savoured.

These are the songs from the movie already posted in the blog :

Song Date of posting Remarks
Na baaz aayaa muqadaar mujhe mitaane se 24 June 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Naazuk hoon albeli hoon 2 August 2011 MD- S Mohinder
Maangne se jo maut mil jaati 5 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Ye ghar aapkaa hai chale aayiye jee 25 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Na to inkaar kiya na to iqraar kiya 29 October 2020 MD-Bulo C Rani

The song is like a gorgeous long meal, a smorgasbord. Mohammed Rafi sahab is singing different portions of this song, with relish. And we listeners are mesmerised. The bass of Manna Dey’s parts is in tune with Rafi sahab’s sometimes sweet, sometimes mischievous, nasheeli, some with smooth softness. We can’t actually eat this, but we consume it and our senses absorb the nuances of the song. I just wish the parts where Suman Kalyanpure and Usha Timothy are singing, could be softened a little. They bring a mesmerised person back to earth, but Rafi sahab is back again in the last part of the song, in tandem with Manna Dey and they both bring it to a level field so we are not too sorry the song has ended, and there is no more of it to be heard for the first time.

I actually looked far and wide, to find if there is still more left to be found of this song. Lyrics by Nyay Sharma are equally good and make the most of the tune of the song. But for the large parts of the song, the words were redundant I felt, it was the raag and the rhythm and soft vocal voice singing the words which became paramount. This is a rarity, as it happens only with classical raagaa’s. The only other time I can recall this happening with me, was when I heard Kumar Gandharv here .
Is this what is known as a sum total greater than its parts?
