Hullo to Atuldom

Today is a unique happy birthday date. It is not any celebrity’s birthday. It is the birthdate of our beloved blog Atul-song-a-day which has been nicknamed ASAD and all of its followers are called Atulites.

This is one blog which has brought together a lot of Hindi film music lovers from across the world. It must have started as a one-man’s passion for film music but has now become an addiction for a set of music lovers who are equally passionate about Hindi film music. People who have associated themselves with the blog are going to great lengths to find hitherto unheard songs, finding about the life-stories of those associated with those songs etc. We have our own in-house encyclopaedia who has put a lot of time into researching about long forgotten artists, singers, musicians, and also cleared confusion about artist who had same or similar names and were popular about the same period etc. We have an NRA (Non Resident Atulite) who has assigned Sudhir ji a job of finding movies of the 60s’ decade that were lost or forgotten and Sudhir ji has done a great job of finding at least 112 such movies with about 79 left and these may be really unavailable otherwise he would have dug them out too. In addition to this, he has an ongoing series of songs which were reused in movies and I am sure that will give us a minimum of 50 songs.

Sudhir ji and Arunkumar ji (the encyclopaedia) are just two examples of dedicated contributors. We have others whose craze for Hindi film music has been manifested in the form of reading through the “ancient” 😉 issues of Film-India magazine and sharing knowledge gathered from there with us on the blog. Then there is the case of two resident NRAs who collaborate to produce posts to remember their favourite Sahir on his birth and death anniversaries. Of course, one NRA is more active than the other who I expect will surface in the last week of July as the anniversary of his and our favourite Mohd. Rafi is coming up and his activity will continue on to first week of August. (Hope I am not proved wrong) Of course there are those contributors who surface on the really important celebratory occasion of the blogs’ 15000th post, Atulji’s personal 10000, and birthdays of their personal favourite singers Mukesh, Shamshad Begum etc. I must make special mention of the behind the scene contributor who sees to it that the links of songs posted are working links in addition to sending his farmaishes in the form of lyrics.  So Atuldom is a kingdom of a group with varied interests in HFM and who have their own way of making the blog a unique space in cyberland.

As far as my own film music addiction is concerned, I have mentioned many a times how this blog has affected my way of listening to songs. How I have learnt about the life and times of the singers, actors, music directors, and others associated with movie making. And the most important take-away from this blog is a whole new set of friends who are always in touch 24/7 and who receive my phone-calls with a smile (I can feel it in their “Hello”). But I had an altogether different experience the last time I called Sudhir ji; my “hullo Sudhir ji” was met by a good two minute of laughter, such is the camaraderie that he knew exactly what I was going to say. 😊

For all of the above a big thank you to the blog and the blog master Atul. It is only because Atul ji started the blog on 19th July 2008 that we can call ourselves Atulites or Atulwaasis, who are residents of Atuldom.

Exactly a year after it was born, Atulji posted six songs on 19th July 2009. These represented six movies: two from 1969, and one each of 1956, 1954, 1953 and 1949. Of the movies that these songs were from only one is left to be yyippeed!! That is ‘Sambandh’ of 1969. It has 5 songs posted on the blog, out of a possible 11 or 12 , the last being posted in October of 2011. That is a loooong time ago.

So, to take ‘Sambandh’ a step forward we re-visit it today. The movie was produced by Ram Mukherjee; directed by Ajoy Biswas; had Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar for playback singers for songs written by Kavi Pradeep and composed by OP Nayyar. Atul ji has said in one of the previous posts of the songs of this movie that this was an unusual combination- OP Nayyar setting Kavi Pradeep’s words to tune. This movie had Pradeep Kumar and Deb Mukherjee heading the cast which also had Anjana (this was her debut) Sulochana Latkar, Anita Dutt (looks like Anita Guha, must have been Dutt at that time), Achala Sachdev, Vijaya Chaudhary, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Leela Mishra, etc.

The synopsis as given on IMDB is:

Manav Chatterjee’s childhood is spent in a wealthy home where his father, Umakant, is an alcoholic, and his mother a simple housewife, who tries in vain to get his dad to give up on alcohol. This results in differences between his parents, leading to their separation, and him leaving the house to be with his mother. Manav grows up as a cynic, and this cynicism increases when he goes to live with a foster and a very wealthy family. He marries Hiralal’s daughter, Sandhya, and both love each other deeply. But things do not seem to go Manav’s way at all, as he is separated from Sandhya, and after several months finds out that Hirala is about to get Sandhya married – again. Now Manav has changed his name, and is being helped by an unknowing Umakant to try and salvage, what possibly remains, of the rest of this bitter and lonely life.

Here is the list of songs posted this-date-that-year as is the practice in the Ten-Year Challenge,

Gore Gore Mukhde Pe Gesoo Jo Chhaa Gaye Patanga

1949

Bujh Gaye Aasha Ke Diye…Badle Rang Jahaan Ke Shikast

1953

Dil Se Milaa Ke Dil Pyaar Kijiye Taxi Driver

1954

Dil Dil Se Milaakar Dekho Mem Sahib

1956

Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche Sambandh

1969

Saathiyaan Nahin Jaana Ke Ji Na Lage Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke

1969

Hindigeetmala.net (my personal HFGK) lists 12 songs for ‘Sambandh’ of which we have 5 on the blog. Of the twelve, six songs have Asha Bhonsle giving playback, one being a duet with Hemant Kumar. It is difficult to find videos of all the songs that are left to be posted, only audios are available on youtube. Another thing I found was almost all the songs were rather sombre or completely sad. Would love to see the movie to understand why the mood of the songs are so.  And as Atul ji has previously said this is a rather unusual OP Nayyar album with not one peppy number. So, choosing from what is available, here is the Hemant Kumar – Asha song which is a prayer and I would like to know on whom it was filmed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASAD!!!!!
Thank you Atul ji for giving us ASAD.

There is still a lot of songs left in the ocean of HFM for us to find gems, pearls and corals.

P.S. after writing the post I ran through the movie to see who has lip synced the song. I found that the Hemant Kumar part is no where in the movie and Anita Dutt has lip-synced the Asha Bhonsle part.

Editor’s note-With this song, Hemant Kumar completes 200 songs in the blog as a playback singer.

हे जगत पिता परमात्मा
करो निर्मल मेरी आत्मा
दुख हरो दयालु
अब सुख दो
सब अवगुण मेरे करो क्षमा
प्रभु करो क्षमा

तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये

तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में

मिलते हैं किसी को बिन मांगे ही मोती

कुछ किस्मत वाले सुख से अमृत पीते

कुछ दिल पर रख कर पत्थर जीवन जीते
ओ ओ ओ
कहीं मन पंछी आकाश उड़े
कहीं पाँव पड़ी ज़ंजीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में

Blog Day : 4017 Post No. : 15124

The years roll by – time stops for no one.

And, just like that, it is now 7 years since that day in 2012.

I still remember that day very well – I first got the news on Facebook.

One of my friends had posted “vaada tera vaada”, saying “RIP Rajesh Khanna”.

It shook me – I immediately checked Twitter for validation. (Now Twitter is known to post fake death news from time to time. Not so long ago, they had posted news of Mumtaz’s death – thankfully, fake.) But I wanted a second source.

Sadly, and I realized this very soon with a sinking feeling, the news on 18th July 2012 was not fake. Rajesh Khanna (or Kaka, as he was more affectionately known) HAD passed away. For the past year, he had been suffering from cancer – and the cancer had finally won.

I felt miserable that day. Not that I didn’t know he was suffering from cancer, but I never expected him to go when he did.

That day my Facebook status was
Kya samjhega ye aalam koi
Badaa bhaari hai dil ye mera
Ki le gaye ho saath safar pe tumhaare
Tukda jo kabhi tha dil ye mera

Rubbish poetry, I know – but hey, it did reflect my mood.

Those were the times when I’d seek refuge in my blog. I’d just dump my thoughts onto my blog, for my own sake. It was my way of releasing my feelings, not suppressing them within.

That day too I went to my blog, and wrote a piece for Rajesh Khanna. A personal piece – well, about as personal a piece that one can write about someone he has never met, someone whose many character flaws one acknowledges, and yet someone who was a big part of one’s childhood.

I’ve written about Kaka several times here, and I don’t want to bore readers by repeating stuff.

I’ll just say a few things, and then move on to the song.

Firstly, most times when I discuss Kaka with others (I don’t do much of this anymore), I get the following reactions.
Firstly, a criticism of his acting – mostly his set mannerisms, and his hamming.
Secondly, criticism about him as a person.

I’ve noticed that people who dislike Kaka, tend to dislike him rather intensely. 🙂 On one, or both, of the above counts.

And, I must admit, they would not be wrong.

The first point first.

Without doubt, Kaka’s acting lost its freshness after a few years – and was a big reason for his decline. His superstar success lasted only a few years. During this period, he acted in a whole lot of films. Both he, and his producers, wanted to cash in on his name. Just his name used to be enough to sell a film. Sure, the films were all successful – Kaka holds the record for maximum number of consecutive hits.

But over-exposure comes with its risks. Especially when you’re boxed into a method of acting, expected to conform to set mannerisms, and a set dialogue delivery style. Yes, they made you successful, but style wears out after a while. Kaka’s mannerisms did become an issue. That the storylines also were beginning to get thin, did not help.

Much later in his career, we got to see a different Rajesh Khanna. Not THE superstar anymore, he could afford to act differently, in different roles. Let’s not forget he got his break in films by winning an acting contest, so he couldn’t have been that bad an actor. 🙂

Now, to the second point.

Again, I have to agree. It’s no secret that Kaka allowed success to get to his head. His unprofessional, and possibly even mean, behaviour with colleagues and others, left a lot of people bitter. No doubt many would have been happy to see him go down. A point made even more stark when compared with the upcoming star, Amitabh Bachchan, who was the model professional actor, punctual and polite.

I will not defend Kaka on this front at all. Much later in life, he did realize this himself.

All I will say is, every one of us has failings. Maybe if Kaka’s success had been more gradual, he’d have been a different person. Failure teaches us much more than success – Amitabh had a string of failures before becoming a superstar.

One person’s life is often a lesson for another. Just as people can tell aspiring youngsters “Look at Amitabh – how he struggled early in his career, but his perseverance and professionalism made him a superstar”, they can also say “Look at Rajesh Khanna – how he let success get to his head at a young age, and destroyed his career and relationships”.

One can learn from both.

To me, while I accept these criticisms, I will always remember, and thank, Rajesh Khanna for giving me many wonderful memories in my childhood.

That tilt of the head, that smile, that kurta, that dialogue delivery – today people might mock all of this, but in those days, these are what millions swooned over. That “Pushpa, I hate tears” line is still one of the best-known lines in Hindi cinema.

His films of that era made me feel good when I saw them in the early 70s. Later, when I saw them again, I’d still smile at “rona kabhi nahin rona”, “yahaan wahaan saare”, “nainon mein nindiya hai”, “ye shaam mastaani” and a whole lot of other songs. They’d bring back memories of my childhood.

Like one of my best friends (in class I) would always sing “pyaar deewana hota hai” from Kati Patang. It was his favourite song. I liked it a lot too, but I’d counter him with “ye shaam mastaani”. I know it sounds silly, but these are not just songs for me – they have memories attached to them. Like the incident attached to “o mere dil ke chain” – I’ve discussed the incident here earlier.

And that’s the thing. Each person’s memories are different, and therefore connect with someone is different. And while I acknowledge all Kaka’s failings, I also want to give him back a little bit of that love that I got from watching his films during my childhood.

That’s also the reason for this post. I haven’t written for a while now, but Avinashji requested me to write a post for this occasion. I was hesitant, since I sincerely believe I’ve lost my writing ability. I even told Avinashji “I can’t write anything longer than a tweet now” :-). But he was kind enough to share with me a whole lot of Kaka songs not posted yet, so I could easily pick one.

Now to the song.

Initially I thought of posting a sad song, considering it is on Kaka’s death anniversary. But then I thought again.

What I’d like to remember most of Kaka is the joy I got from watching his films, from before his decline. I think, from up there, he’d also probably like most people to remember him for those films.

So today’s song is from one of his early films – Bandhan (1969). I remember seeing this film long ago, though I don’t remember the story now.

By the way, it is exactly 50 years since this film was released. 1969 was a milestone year for Kaka – this was the year he became a superstar with Aradhana. And Do Raaste was a huge hit too.

The song “jaana hai to jao” shows early glimpses of the superstar-to-be. One can see some of those mannerisms that would become his hallmark in the coming years. And it is always fun to see Kaka and Mumtaz together, even if this was a less-known film than their more famous films to come.

The song is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Not surprising that Mahendra Kapoor was used, considering music is by Kalyanji-Anandji. The MK-KA combo had a huge hit with Upkar (1967), so KA were happy to use MK again. And at that time, Rajesh Khanna was “just another hero”. Kishore Kumar had not yet become his voice. In fact, in this film, even Mukesh sings a happy song for Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

I hope you like the song.

Thanks for the memories, Kaka.

Whatever the world might say about you, remember, when it comes to romance in film,

“tere hi to sar pe mohabbat ka taaj hai”.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

un aankhon mein neend kahaan
jin aankhon se preetam door basey. . .

It was October of 2017, a year and 8 months ago. The previous episode of this series was posted then. After that – this long gap. There have been many a sleepless nights in the intervening months. Yet, somehow I could not get back into the groove with this series. And actually, and inadvertently I should say, two songs that I was saving for this series, got posted otherwise, depleting my list of song. Anyhow, not an issue – the wealth of the Hindi film song still will reveal more songs for this category. 🙂

‘Ek Masoom’, a film from 1969, appears to be a film that likely took some time to get going, get completed and released. This film was rare and unavailable for decades, and it has been recently unearthed and then made available in public domain.

It is a lesser known film of Tanuja, who is paired opposite to a gentleman named Salim Durrani. Yes, the name sounds very familiar, but this gentleman is not the India’s cricketing great, as even I had jumped to conclude first time when I read this name. The cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared in one film – BR Ishaara’s ‘Charitraheen’ (1973). The Salim Durrani appearing in ‘Ek Masoom’ is a different person. From checking the Geet Kosh, it seems that this film is the only one in which this non-cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared, just like his cricketing namesake.

The story of this film is the theme of same-face-confusion. A mix up is caused when two individuals who look exactly alike, happen to inadvertently wander into the life space of one another. One of the characters has links to the world of crime. And so, the mix up results in some predictable situations, where one individual is arrested for the crimes of the other. The matters reach the court, and are finally settled when both of them eventually reach the courtroom at the same time, come face to face with each other, and mix up is sorted out.

Of course, in the interim, the lives of the people connected with this same-face duo, become topsy turvy. The gentleman who is the straight and shareef person, is the love interest of Tanuja. But when the suspicions are cast on his actions and his character, misunderstandings are created, bringing agony to the lady.

This song is the result of that agony Tanuja is undergoing, spending sleepless nights – awaiting for some sign of good hope that may dispel her apprehensions, and clear the air around the man she loves.

And so the refrain from the poet –

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya

 The sleepless nights bother those hearts that are torn asunder with the storms of emotions and anxiety. These storms will keep one awake. Thoughts of what could have been and what may possibly happen, rage through the mind. And the sleep – it is far, far away from the eyes.

Another sleepless night. And another song of sleepless nights.

Song – Jo Na Poore Hon Un Armaanon Ne Soney Na Diya  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
din to kya shab ko bhi
deewaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya

jo na poore hon

yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
lakh chaaha magar afsaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
raat bhar shamma ko parwaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
दिन तो क्या शब को भी
दीवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
लाख चाहा मगर अफसानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
रात भर शम्मा को परवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

Slowly moving towards closure, we now have less than 10 more films to go for this series, for which songs are available. Then there is a whole batch of about 80 films from this decade, which seem to have disappeared without a trace (so far). I will give the statistics and other details when we come down to the closing post.

The film I present today is ‘Mujhe Seene Se Laga Lo’ from 1969. As the name suggests, this film is most probably about a child seeking acknowledgement and love from one (or both) parents. My surmise is based on checking out the list of songs for this film. Geet Kosh lists 6 songs for this film, and four of these songs are very clearly child related songs – one is a lullaby, then one is a duet with a female voice and a child’s voice, the third is a child’s entreaty requesting for parent’s love, and the fourth is a duet, about a mother searching for a lost child. And incidentally, another film comes to mind – a similar sounding name ‘Aa Galey Lag Jaa’ (1973), which is also a film about a child seeking his father – a very famous and popular song – “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Naata Koi“.

The other two songs are non-child related. One is a sad/philosophical song in male voice – about departing with a load of sorrows. And the sixth song, which is the song presented today, is a song in female voice – a drunkard song that could well be a club or a bar dance song, or a song of enticement / seduction. Since the video clips are not available, I request our knowledgeable readers who may have seen this film, to please add more information about the song and the film.

The film is produced under the banner of Hari Darshan Chitra, Bombay and is directed by Dutta Dharmadhikari. The cast of actors as per Geet Kosh listings is Bunty, Kumar Sen, Meena Rai, Paresh Kumar, Dharmesh, Akhil Kumar, Ved Bhushan, Santosh Virdi, Gopal Dutt, KS Pawar, Vinod Verma, Ang Pal, Uma Khosla, Gold Flake, Tuntun, and Sarita. You will notice that the list is topped by a child actor – Bunty, supporting the surmise about this being a child centric film. An interesting side note here – the name Bunty rang a faint bell and I checked. My hunch turned out to be correct. Bunty is the same child artist who starred in Chetan Anand’s ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) – another film about an infant child lost in a big city, searching for its parents

The six songs in this film are shared amongst three songwriters – Prem Dhawan, Qamar Jalaalabaadi and Mahendra Dehlvi. The song we present today is from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. Music is by Hansraj Behl.

The singing voice is of Asha Bhosle. As with many other such songs, her rendition is superb – a lady who is so much in stupor, is requesting that the glass of wine be taken from hands, as she may not be able to hold it. One of the best songs in the female drunkard category – my opinion. 🙂

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

Song – Makhmoor Nigaahon Mein Teri Doob Gaye Hum  (Mujhe Seene Se Laga Lo) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Hansraj Behl

Missing Films of 1960s – 104
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yesterday, unbeknownst to myself, I crossed a personal milestone on the blog. I posted my 1300th article, and song. 🙂 The past few weeks, well, months – have been very slow as far as my activity on the blog is concerned. My last century milestone was – believe you me – full eleven months ago. I had crossed the the 1200th mark in May last year. And now it is April. The activity being so low, it did not even come to mind to check and see what my score was. And so, unmindful of it, I reached the 1300th post, and just posted the song.

Imagine my surprise when I saw a prompt message from Avinash ji, congratulating me for the milestone. I scrambled to check on the blog and my excel database. Yes, Avinash ji was right on the dot, and I had missed it. . . wo. . . So this discovery was followed by a brief exchange with Atul ji. We inserted the customary sentence in the banner of the post, announcing the milestone. I told Atul ji how I had missed it myself. His response came back – that yes, he was aware, and was waiting for a special post for the occasion. 😀 😀 And I am like – ye lo, aur phans gaye!!! Here I am, saving the grey cells and the idea energy for the 15K celebration post, and now I have to do one more special just before. Goodness. So I am going to give it a try, do not know what is going to be the outcome.  🙂

Generally, when I run out of ideas, then the easiest starting point I have found is to start dabbling in numbers. (I think Atul ji also does the same. . . 🙂 ). So here goes. Counting this post, our total tally on this blog is 14975. Of these, only 3948 are posts that are guest posts. This computes to ~ 26.4% of the total. The implication here is significant and evident. The remaining 73.6% is the handiwork of our fearless leader – a whopping eleven thousand twenty seven posts have been done by Atul ji. If I extend this analysis to the next logical step – we are at 3914th day of blog’s continued activity. Simple calculation shows that Atul ji has been posting on an average of 3.8 (well, nearly 4) posts on a daily basis, for the past 10 years, 8 months and 19 days – WITHOUT A BREAK. Compare that to the guest posting activity. Normalizing that over the entire stretch of 3914 days, the average guest post over this entire period is 1 (ONE) per day.

I will extrapolate that now, even one step further. Till date, 31 guest posters have been accounted for on our blog, with no. of individual posts ranging from 1 to 1300. Ah yes, I could get into a lot of statistics here trying to compute the normal deviation, the standard deviation, the medians and the percentiles. But I will not bore you with that grand analysis. I present another perspective to this division of effort across the team, which is abundantly spectacular, to say the least. Atul ji has been producing 4 times more posts single handedly in comparison to this platoon of 31 guest posters, ON A DAILY BASIS. Now what do you have to say to that? 🙂 And if you ask me what I have to say to that – this is what I have to say to that – if ever I get into a kabaddi tournament, I will simply desert the game, if Atul ji is in the opposing team. 😀 😀

We all put together are Lilliputians to Atul ji’s Lemuel Gulliver. I have exhausted my entire stock of headgear to doff at this fantastic accomplishment – a prolificacy unparalleled anywhere in the digital domains.

And so, after this analysis, अब मैं क्या कहूँ अपने तेरह सौ के बारे में। 😀 😀 Just this – अगर कबड्डी खेलेंगे तो अतुल जी, मैं आपकी टीम में ही रहूँगा। 😀 😀

But of course, the joy of the journey is massive, and continues undiminished. क्या क्या तो गाने मिल रहे हैं!! और क्या क्या पता चल रहा है कितने ही गुमनाम कलाकारों के बारे में!!

This journey is laden with discoveries so abundant – one is running out of nerve cell memories to keep all this information bounded within. The known and the famous aside, and the well heard and popular aside – the joy of discovering discovering jewels of the diamond quality; and if gold it is 24 carats pure, and if silver – well it is सौ फीसदी टंच (100% pure). Whatever measure you want to throw at it, this travelogue of the discovery of musical gems is the means and the end in itself, a blessed reward unto itself.

Take this song today. The film is ‘Beqasoor’ from 1969. And the mind wants to say – “अब क्या मिसाल दूँ मैं तुम्हारे शबाब की”. I heard this song for the first time today. As I was browsing through the list of remaining films of 1960s, I picked on this film. In the process to locate the songs of this film, I was able to track down two of them online – both Rafi Sb duets, one with Lata Mangeshkar and one with Suman Kalyanpur. Checking the Geet Kosh, I find four songs listed for this film. The remaining two are Asha Bhosle solos, and as far as I could try and track, I am not able to locate these Asha solo numbers anywhere online. So, delving back into my collection, I am immediately able to locate these songs. I play the first one, and immediate reaction is – this song comes online today.

A lilting racy rhythm, a very catchy arrangement of the instruments, and a very appealing construction – quite the handiwork of Dattaram. Words are from the pen of Farooq Qaiser. And the rendering by Asha ji, simply superb. Even in the absence of the video clip, it is easy to surmise that this would be a song of Helen type. As I check out the cast list for this film, I do not find Helen in it, but another name would possibly do justice to this type of a song. The list of actors is given as Dara Singh, Sanjana, Maruti, Ulhas, Shaam Kumar, Ratnamala, Dhanraj, V Gopal, Habeeb, Sadhana Khote, Dilip Dutt, Meenakshi, and Madhumati. Possibilities are more than one. But I would not hazard a guess. I would request the circle of readers and friends – if anyone has seen this film, please add more information about this song and the film itself.

Wonderfully superb discovery. Listen and enjoy.

Missing Films of 1960s – 103
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that we bring on board today is ‘Sati Sulochana’ from 1969. One more film that is rarely heard about, although the video of this film is available. And once again, lovely songs that have not been explored. The sound of this song seems like it was heard on the radio, but that was a long time back.

The music is by SN Tripathi, who incidentally has also directed this film. The film is produced under the banner of SA Films, Bombay. The star cast includes Prithviraj, Anita Dutt, Prem Nath, Raj Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Kanan Kaushal, Sundar, Ram Singh, and Ram Mohan etc.

The story of Sati Sulochana is part of the history of Ramayan.  Sulochana is the daughter of Sheshnaag, the king of serpents. She is married to Meghnaad, the son of Raavan. Meghnaad is also known as Indrajit, for he had once vanquished Lord Indra and captured many sophisticated weapons from him. In the narrative of Ramayan, Sulochana is described as a brave lady who is very supportive of her husband. Eventually, when her husband is killed in the battle with Lakshman, she makes a decision to immolate herself on his pyre.

This story has been made into films on many occasions. The first one on record is the silent film ‘Sati Sulochana’ in 1921. Then this film was produced in Kannada, in 1934, as the first talkie film in Kannada language. In 1935, a Hindi film was also released by this name, under the production banner of Godavari Cinetone. In 1961, this tale was also told in a Telegu film starring NT Ramarao. And then in 1969, we have this Hindi production again.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs of this film. Music is from the mind of SN Tripathi. The songs have been written by Bharat Vyas and BD Mishra. This song is from the pen of Bharat Vyas.  The singing voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. On screen, it appears as if the leading lady and one of two of her friends are lip syncing the same playback singing.

The song is picturized as a group dance song, in which the leading lady is being teased by her friends, asking her who is the one who comes into your dreams. The song is a lively exchange between the lady and her sahelis. On screen, I am not able to identify with certainty, the lady who leads the song. Is she Kanan Kaushal? I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please help identify her.

Enjoy this lovely lilting melody, one of those songs that should have been more popular.

 

Song – Kaun Tere Sapnon Mein Aata  (Sati Sulochana) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – SN Tripathi
Chorus

Lyrics

aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa
aaa aaaaaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaaa

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

hato ri sapne ki na boloon
bhed yeh mann ka na kholoon
jaao ri sakhi jaao
mujhe na yun sataao
khel ye mann ko na bhaata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
main to soi thi
neend mein khoi thi
chup ke se koi aa gaya
megh varan tha
kanak rang tha
mere jeevan mein samaa gaya
chhup ke kaanon mein kuchh bola
haule se ghunghat pat khola
akhiaan ghabraai
main to sharmaai
aage ab kuchh na kaha jaata
koi tere sapnon mein aata

veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
veer purush tha
kandhe dhanush tha
mukh pe tej samaaya
jaan nahin
pehchaan nahin koi
phir bhi wo mann ko bhaaya
preet meri muskaai hai
pooja meri rang laai hai
chhudaaye se na chhoote
tode to nahin toote
janm janmaantar ka naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

kaun tere sapnon mein aata
aa ke nainon mein muskaata
bataao na bataao
hum ko ye bataao
jud gaya kis se ye naata
kaun tere sapnon mein aata

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

हटो री सपने की ना बोलूँ
भेद ये मन का ना खोलूँ
जाओ री सखी जाओ
मुझे ना यूं सताओ
खेल ये मन को ना भाता’
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मैं तो सोई थी
नींद में खोई थी
चुपके से कोई आ गया
मेघ वरण था
कनक रंग था
मेरे जीवन में समा गया
छुप के कानों में कुछ बोला
हौले से घूँघट पट खोला
अखियाँ घबराईं
मैं तो शरमाई
आगे अब कुछ ना कहा जाता
कोई तेरे सपनों में आता

वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
वीर पुरुष था
कांधे धनुष था
मुख पे तेज समाया
जान नहीं
पहचान नहीं कोई
फिर भी वो मन को भाया
प्रीत मेरी मुसकाई है
पूजा मेरी रंग लाई है
छुड़ाए से ना छूटे
तोड़े तो नहीं टूटे
जन्म जन्मांतर का नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

कौन तेरे सपनों में आता
आ के नैनों में मुस्काता
बताओ ना बताओ
हम को ये बताओ
जुड़ गया किस से ये नाता
कौन तेरे सपनों में आता

Missing Films of 1960s – 102
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I checked the listings today, I find there still are a good about dozen films of 1960s, and this homework list, that are traceable, available and have to be covered. I was earlier thinking may be just four or five more to go. Ok so, abhi to we are in good stride here, and hope to complete the available list in the next about two weeks. 🙂

Today’s film is ‘Soldier’ from 1969. This film also has an alternate name – ‘Thakur Diler Singh’. And so on YouTube, we find songs available by both names. The film is produced under the banner of PS Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Shyam. An short list of actors – Kumar Ajeet, Deepa, Shyam Kumar, Rajan Haksar, Randhir, Pal Sharma, Parasram, Jagdev, and Bilkis Shabnam.

The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. All songs are from the pen of Aziz Kashmiri, and the music is by the duo of Sonik Omi. Aziz Kashmiri, by this time in his career, was seasoned songwriter. His active career starts at the beginning of the 1940s, and goes all the way to mid 1970s – a recognized body of work of about 230+ songs from about 50 films. To his credit are such notable films as ‘Himmat’ (1941), ‘Iraada’ (1944), ‘Khamosh Nigaahen’ (1946), ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1947),’Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), ‘Dholak’ and ‘Sabz Baagh’ (both 1951), ‘Aag Ka Driya’ and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (both 1953), ‘Dekhi Teri Bambai’ (1961), ‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, ‘Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi’ and ‘Akalmand’ (all 1966) etc. His last film, as per Geet Kosh, is ‘International Crook’ from 1974.

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. Although the video clips of some songs of this film are available, for this particular song, I could locate only the audio clip. From the sound of it, it seems to be a group dance situation. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to add more information about this song.

Another player from 1960s makes its debut on our blog.  Listen to and enjoy this wonderful creation.

Song – Hum Ne Suna Tha Bada Charcha Janaab Ka  (Soldier) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Aziz Kashmiri, MD – Sonik Omi
Chorus

Lyrics

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
koi maane ya na maane
hum huye tere deewaane
jo pyaar kare iqraar kare
to ban jaaye afsaane
hoy bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
chauraahe pe dekha tujhko
lut gayi beech bajariya re
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
kehti hai meri jawaani
kyon qadar na tu ne jaani
ho yaar mere dildaar mere
zaalim hai rut mastaani
hoy gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
itna to batla de akela
kya thi teri marzi
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
कोई माने या ना माने
हम हुये तेरे दीवाने
जो प्यार करे इक़रार करे
तो बन जाये अफसाने
होय बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
चौराहे पे देखा तुझको
लुट गई बीच बजरिया रे
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
कहती है मेरी जवानी
क्यों क़दर ना तू ने जानी
हो यार मेरे दिलदार मेरे
ज़ालिम है रुत मस्तानी
होय गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
इतना तो बतला दे अकेला
क्या थी तेरी मर्ज़ी
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

Missing Films of 1960s – 101
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And yet, once again, another melodious and enchanting song. And once again, from a film that one has not heard anything about. The film is ‘Surya Devta’ from 1969 – as obscure as it can get. I have not heard of this film or its songs, before finding them in the Geet Kosh.

The film is produced by Alice Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Sharad Desai. The cast of actors is listed as Nirupa Roy, Ashish Kumar, Manimala, Sapru, Jeevan, Shekhar, Amrit Patel, Sarita Khatau, P Kailash, Sarita Devi, Shukla, Dalpat, Bhoj Kumar, and Kapoor.

The film has six songs listed. The lyrics are written by two poets – Madan and Bharat Vyas. Today’s song is written by Madan. The music is composed by Avinash Vyas. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

As I am preparing this post, and checking the genre categories, I realize that this song is an opposite genre of the “Please Don’t Go” type songs. Something like “Please Let Me Go” song. 🙂 I can think of one or two other such songs.

But what a lovely melodious composition, and what a lovely rendering by Suman Kalyanpur. A song that surely should have been more heard and more known.

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Jaane De, O Bedardi Jaane De  (Surya Devta) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Madan, MD – Avinash Vyas

 

Lyrics

jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
rok ke meri raah
naam badnaam na kar mere pyaar ka
chaaron taraf pehra hai sainyyaan
is bairi sansaar ka
ab milne ki ghadiyaan guzar gayin re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
door rahoongi tan se sainyyaan
mann to hai tere paas re
janam janam se hoon main teri
kar mujh pe vishwaas re
more kajre ki kor bigad gayi re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de
morey maathe ki bindiya bikhar gai re
koi poochhega to kya kahungi main
jaane de
oo bedardi jaane de

जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
ओ ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
रोक के मेरी राह
नाम बदनाम ना कर मेरे प्यार का
चारों तरफ पहरा हैं सैंय्या
इस बैरी संसार का
अब मिलने की घड़ियाँ गुज़र गईं रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
दूर रहूँगी तन से सैंय्या
मन तो है तेरे पास रे
जनम जनम से हूँ मैं तेरी
कर मुझ पे विश्वास रे
मोरे कजरे को कोर बिगड़ गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे
मेरी माथे की बिंदिया बिखर गई रे
कोई पूछेगा तो क्या कहूँगी मैं
जाने दे
ओ बेदर्दी जाने दे

Missing Films of 1960s – 100
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Ah, finally, we get to a new type of century today. This series of bringing on board the missing films of 1960s becomes the series that has clocked 100 posts – a first one for our blog. This series got initiated three and half years ago on 30th September, 2015, and we arrive at the century station for it, at the rate of about 2 to 3 songs per month on average. The pace could have been faster, yes, but well, we have what we have. 🙂

As you must be aware, this series got kicked off by the efforts of Khyati Ben. She got into the exercise to check how many films of the 1960s (period from 1961 to 1970) have been brought on board our blog, and which ones are still waiting to be included. She came up with a list of some 190+ films, still waiting in the wings. The analysis resulted in this exercise, to bring on board as many of these 190+ films are traceable / available. And it got assigned to yours truly. 🙂

I will wait to present the final analysis of numbers, as there is still about seven of eight more films that are traceable and will be represented here. So bear with me for a little more time for that.

The film that we bring on board today is an obscure and lesser known film by the name ‘Ek Masoom’ from 1969. The interesting thing about this film is that although the gramophone records of this film have been available, the film itself was not available for a very long time. Finally, the film surfaced about a year ago, and I acquired a copy of it through a collector friend. Video clips of some of the songs are now available on the YouTube.

The film is produced under the banner of GNS Films Bombay, and is directed by Akhtar Khalid. The cast of actors listed for this film is Tanuja, Saleem Durrani, Prem Chopra, Surendra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Uma, Azra, Sulochana, Helen, Jagdeep, Murad, Mohan Choti, and Baby Masoom. I have a concern about this list. The name of Saleem Durrani is included. However, I have seen the film, and the Saleem Durrani (the cricketer) that we are familiar with, is not visible in this film. The lead actor opposite to Tanuja is a different person. One possibility is that this actor also has the name Saleem Durrani, or has used this name in this film. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please help to identify the male actor in this song. The face is completely new and unfamiliar.

The film itself is a cops and robbers tale and Mohan Choti plays the role of a gangster boss. The lead person, whom we are trying to identify, plays a triple role in this film. He appears in different situations with different names, causing a lot of confusion to the people around him. And then finally, there is court room drama where all the three appear one by one, and the mystery of the correct identity is solved.

The film does not have much to write home about. The direction and editing is below par and leaves a lot to be desired. The storyline moves with fits and starts. But the songs – now that is a different story, as usual. Seven songs are listed for this film. The music is by N Dutta. The lyricist’s name is just very, very unfamiliar – Fareed Tonki. As I checked some more, I find his name in just one more film – ‘Zaalim Tera Jawab Nahin’ (1960), and one unreleased film ‘Aqidat Ke Phool’. Checking on our blog, I find that one creation by him is posted here. This is a famous non-film qawwaali – “Raste Alag Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai”. So the gentleman is represented already on our blog, although no other information is traceable so far about him. His name, Fareed Tonki, suggest that he may be from the town named Tonk, in Rajasthan.

The song that I present today is an exquisite duet of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle – such a lovely lost gem this one is. The composition is easy paced and and light, and the rendition is very soft and soothing. A very pleasing song to hear to. (Of course, the song is much better heard than viewed.) On screen, it is Tanuja, and this gentleman that I am not able to identify.

Song – Poochh Le Dil Se Mere Ho Na Agar Mera Yakeen  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta
Mohammed Rafi + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

hmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
hmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
hmmmm hmmmm hmmmm hmmm

pooch le
dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
main mohabbat hoon
mohabbat ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
ae sanam
teri kasam
mujhko to hai tujh pe yakeen
par zamaane ka ye kehna
hai ke tu mera nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

har taraf phaili hain ye
rangeeniaan rukhsaar ki
har taraf phaili hain ye
rangeeniaan rukhsaar ki
tere hi dum se to hai
shadaabiaan gulzar ki
tu jahaan rakhe kadam
phool khilen laakhon wahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

saamne tu hai mere
aur main tujhe dekha karoon
saamne tu hai mere
aur main tujhe dekha karoon
tere jalwon mein ab
shaam o sehar khoi rahoon
chhod ke daaman tera
jaaun na main aur kahin
ae sanam
teri kasam
mujhko to hai tujh pe yakeen

dil mera hai aaina
gar hai nazar pehchaan le
pehle hi pehchaan ke
dil hai diya ye jaan le
hum se kyon duniya jaley
ulfat koi jurm nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen
main mohabbat hoon
mohabbat ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin
pooch le dil se mere
ho na agar mera yakeen

हम्मममम म्मममम म्मम
हम्मममम म्मममम म्मम
हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्म

पूछ ले
दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
मैं मोहब्बत हूँ
मोहब्बत के सिवा कुछ भी नहीं
ए सनम
तेरी कसम
मुझको तो है तुझ पे यकीं
पर ज़माने का ये कहना
है के तू मेरा नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

हर तरफ फैली हैं ये
रंगीनियाँ रुखसार की
हर तरफ फैली हैं ये
रंगीनियाँ रुखसार की
तेरे ही दम से तो है
शादाबियाँ गुलज़ार की
तू जहां रखे कदम
फूल खिलें लाखों वहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

सामने तू है मेरे
और मैं तुझे देखा करूँ
सामने तू है मेरे
और मैं तुझे देखा करूँ
तेरे जलवों में अब
शाम ओ सहर खोई राहून
छोड़ के दामन तेरा
जाऊँ ना मैं और कहीं
ए सनम
तेरी कसम
मुझको तो है तुझ पे यकीं

दिल मेरा है आईना
गर है नज़र पहचान ले
पहले ही पहचान के
दिल है दिया ये जान ले
हम से क्यों दुनिया जले
उलफत कोई जुर्म नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं
मैं मोहब्बत हूँ
मोहब्बत के सिवा कुछ भी नहीं
पूछ ले दिल से मेरे
हो ना अगर मेरा यकीं

Missing Films of 1960s – 99
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK wow, we are at 99 for this series today. 🙂

The surprising thing is that this film is not yet on the blog. It is not obscure, it is not unfamiliar, it is not starring unfamiliar faces, it does not contain unfamiliar or unheard songs, and the songs are good to be heard. So then, how come?

Well, we come to it today. The film we are bringing on today is ‘Shart’ from 1969. Of course, its namesake from 1954 has legendary music and songs. The 1969 ‘Shart’ does not compare to the quality of music of the earlier one. But still, given the era we were in during late 1960s, we are still talking of primary rated artists who came together for this song. In their own right, these artists had already established themselves in the industry.

Music is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The lyrics are written by Anand Bakshi. And the singer of this song is Asha Bhosle. The lead pair in this film is Mumtaz and Sanjay (later known by the name Sanjay Khan). By 1969, both had made their presence felt on the box office. Mumtaz, having struggled thru from being a junior artist and then playing many a C grade films, had by this time graduated to A and B class cinema. Sanjay, being the younger brother of Feroze Khan already had a head start – appearing in big banner films opposite to top line leading ladies already.

The film was produced under the banner of Shankar Movies, Bombay, and was directed by Kewal Mishra. The star cast of this film, in addition to the lead pair mentioned above, is listed as Kumud Chhugani, Rajendra Nath, KN Singh, Ramesh Dev, Rajan Haksar, Heeralal, Shammi, Meena Rai, Murad, Ravikant, Tuntun, Ravi Khanna, and Hercules.

I do not readily recall the storyline. The song is group dance song, with Mumtaz as the lead dancer and a group of sahelis supporting her. We catch a glimpse of Ramesh Deo in the beginning of the clip. And Sanjay is seen watching this dance performance. The peculiar thing about this song is that in between we see that the lead dancer is switched, and we see another lady leading the dance, wearing exactly the same attire as Mumtaz. I request our circle of knowledgeable readers to please help identify this other lady.

It seems that the leading man, Sanjay, is equally perplexed. There is a look of baffled curiosity on his face, as he tries to figure out how the lady is being switched, as the song progresses. From a distance, it cannot be clearly made out, but in closer shots, there definitely is a switching of lead performer happening. Again, request is for those who may have seen this film, to please add information to explain this situation.

The song itself is a lovely Asha rendition, and the performance by Mumtaz is simply too good. Very energetic and very involved with the scene, she is of course the star attraction in this clip.

And after this post – we have the century post of this series coming up. Watch this space for more. 🙂 🙂

Song – Chori Se Sainyyaan Ne Mohe Pukaara  (Shart) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

chori se sainyyaan ne mohe pukaara
re chupke se maine bhi kiya ishaara

padh ke log mere naam ki patiyaan
dheere dheere baaten huin
chori mulaqaaten huin
kali kali jaan gayi

चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा
रे चुपके से मैंने भी किया इशारा
रे कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा

गली गली मच गया शोर

ओय गली गली मच गया शोर

पहले थी चम्पा

पड़ गया अब मेरा नाम चकोरी
ए सुनो

उड़ गई बैरन नींदिया मोरी
पकड़ी गई मेरे मन की चोरी
भेद ना ये काम आया
दोष मेरे नाम आया

ए सुनो

पढ़ के लोग मेरे नाम की पतियाँ
धीरे धीरे बातें हुईं
चोरी मुलाकातें हुईं
कली कली जान गई
गली गली मच गया शोर
चोरी से सैयां ने मोहे पुकारा
रे चुपके से मैंने भी किया इशारा
