We have Ganpati Festival being celebrated all over. It brings back lot of memories for peoples like me. Especially the memories of the entertainment programs organized over the ten days of this festival. And secondly it’s the ‘prasada’ especially the ‘modaks’ 😊

Those were the years when I was growing. But the excitement and the thrill remain the same even today and savoring the varieties of modaks has only been more interesting and more joyful every year as it comes.

We were staying at Paras (District-Akola, Maharashtra) then. I was born in 1968 and we stayed there up to 1984. Thus, I spent my growing years to ‘mid-teens’ there in a colony for the employees of electricity board for the thermal power plant there.

Every year the Ganpati Festival would be celebrated for all, and it was called ‘Sarwajanik Ganesh Utsav’. A committee of selected members from the employees would be in charge for all the programs to be held during this festival.

The main attractions or the most awaited programs were screening of a movie, orchestras and plays. People were more interested in these as compared to other programs.

Normally the festival always started with ‘sthaapna’ and ‘bhajans’. The following days were spread over containing two orchestra programs, two plays, one movie, one mimicry show, one ‘katha-kathan (story telling)/pravachan/ or ‘one-act-plays.

One day would be specifically reserved for ‘cultural program’ wherein artists from the employees and their families used to perform their acts (song, dance, singing, folk song/dance etc. etc.).

And the last day would be ‘Shri Satyanarayan Katha and Prasad distribution’.

In this episode I am sharing the memories of the ‘naatak’ or ‘Marathi plays.

There were two (amateur) groups in our colony who normally staged Marathi plays.

My parents were part of one group. And both acted in many plays then. (Even I used to participate and act in plays for children then).

There must be many plays which I may have watched and took part in the rehearsals with my parents. I remember to accompany my parents in the rehearsals of the ‘plays’. During the process I would get the complete script embedded in my mind and many times I would help the participant if they forgot their dialogues.
(Later I was also promoted as a ‘prompter’ behind the ‘curtains’ as my voice was suitable for this activity then). (I think I have shared the same in one my posts or in the comments on the blog).

Some of the plays that I vividly remember are ‘taroon turk mhaataare ark’, ‘Rajkaaran gela chulit’, ‘raaygadaala jenvha jaag yete’, ‘thank you mr glad’, ‘ashroonchi jhaali phoole’, ‘sunbai ghar tujhach aahe’ etc.

***

In the ‘mode’ of the festival and the above memories playing in mind when I was browsing our blog couple of days back, I came across the movie ‘Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool’. To my surprise this movie so far had got only two songs posted on the blog and yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’.

The name of this movie reminded me the famous Marathi play ‘Ashroonchi Jhaali Phoole’ on which this movie was based. I am sure I must have watched the play first and the movie much later when it was on a TV channel.

I do not remember now but it is also possible that I may have watched this movie with elders in the family. Because as a grown-up boy when once I heard its’ song ‘jaane kaisa hai mera deewaana’, in my uncle’s collection of songs, I found it a little familiar to me.
After this I got this song it in my collection in 1999-2000 in an Asha Bhonsle-Kishore Kumar compilation. That time I was staying at Bareilly.

Well, the story of this movie ‘Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool-1969’ was written by eminent Marathi Playwright and writer Vasant Shankar Kanetkar. He was awarded the ‘Filmfare award for Best Story’ for this movie.

I had always had a great admiration for him ever since I had watched the play ‘Raaygadaaalaa Jenvha Jaag Yete’ and reading his writings in our school text books.

Vasant Kanetkar was born on 20th March’1922 at a small village Rahimatpur, in Satara District. He was second among the four siblings his parents have. His father Shankar Keshav Kanetkar was a famous Marathi poet, and he wrote by the pen name of ‘Girish’.
Vasant Kanetkar spent his earlier life in Pune, and he graduated from the Ferguson College Pune in Arts and later done his post-graduation (M.A.) from Sangli. During his higher studies he got the guidance from V.S. Khandekar and Kannada litterateur V.K. Gokak whose writings influenced him the most. He also had the influence of Shakespeare’s writings on him.

He joined the H.P.T. Arts college of Gokhale Education Society in Nashik and later went to become a professor and life member of this institute. He took on to writing short stories and novels during his services, and his first play ‘vedyanche ghar unhaat’ (Madman have his home in Sun/heat) came in 1957.
His play ‘raaygadaala jenvha jaag yete’ (When Raaygadaa awakens) brought him more fame and admiration and went on to become a milestone play in the history of Marathi Plays.

The Sangeet Naatak Academy awarded this play as the ‘Best Indian Play’ in 1964.

‘Ashroonchi Jhali Phoole’ was the next to bring him more fame and it was a commercially successful play too.
His ‘plays’ give a new life to Marathi theatre in terms of creativity and commercial success.
In his writing career of over fifty-four years, he penned down forty-two plays, four novels, many short stories along with writing for films, writing screen plays for TV etc etc.

He presided over the ‘Marathi Sahitya Sammelan in 1988’. He was felicitated with the ‘Maharashtra Gaurav Puraskar’ in 1990 and was honored with Padma Shri in 1992 for his accomplishments in writing. His writings have been translated into many languages.
He passed away on 30th January ‘2001.

I am reproducing here the plot of this play ‘Ashroonchi Jhaali Phooley’ (Tears have become Flowers) as given on the ‘wiki-page’ of this play.

The movie ‘Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool is based on this story.

The play depicts the turns in fortunes in the lives of the two main protagonists, Vidyanand, a professor of mathematics, and his young protégé Lalya.
Professor Vidyanand is a morally upright, brilliant professor of mathematics in a college in a town in Maharashtra. He comes across an intransigent student, Lalyaa, and succeeds in reforming him. Lalya graduates from college and enters the Indian Police Service as a cadet. Meanwhile, his college is taken over by a local politician, Dharmappa, who also has strong criminal links. Dharmappa wants to exploit the college for commercial gain. When Vidyanand resists, Dharmappa subverts Vidyanand’s own colleagues to implicate him falsely under embezzlement charges.

Vidyanand is removed from his position and is thrown in jail. In jail, he undergoes a transformation, and comes out as a hardened criminal, bent on enacting revenge against those who falsely implicated him. He teams up with his childhood friend turned con-man, Shambhu Mahadev, and puts in motion a plan to defraud the politician who has ruined his life.

In the meantime, Lalya, who is now a senior police officer, is assigned to apprehend Vidyanand. Lalya, oblivious to Vidyanand’s transformation, embarks on this mission. Eventually, Vidyanand achieves his revenge, but in the process finds he has lost his moral center and compromised the very values he has stood for. In the end, Vidyanand is apprehended by his protégé, but finds redemption in the fact that his life as a teacher caused his protégé Lalya to reform himself.

“Aansoo Ban Gaye Phool-1969” was directed by Satyen Bose for ‘Anoop Kumar Productions’. It was produced by S.M. Sagar and Anoop Kumar. It had Ashok Kumar, Deb Mukherjee, Alka, Nirupa Roy, Raj Mehra, Anoop Kumar, Rakesh, with Helen and Pran. They were supported by Kumud Tripathi, Manik Dutt, Kumari Uma, Mughni Abbasi, Shekhar Purohit, Janki Das, Tarun Ghosh, Bazid Khan, Radhey Shyam, Gautam Mukherjee, Pardesi, Uma Dutt, Madhup Sharma, Prakash Misra, Behari, M.A. Latif, Vinod Sharma, Lalit Kapoor, Genius, Ramlal, Amrit Rana, Nadir, Deepak, Aziz Siddiqui, and Habib.

As mentioned above story of this movie was written by Vasant S. Kanetkar.
Screenplay of this movie was written by Nabendu Ghosh, and dialogues were written by Govind Moonis.
Editing of this movie was done by Wamanrao (which I guess is Wamanrao Bhonsle of the duo Waman Bhonsle-Guru Dutt Shirali).

This movie had five songs in it. Lyrics for four songs were written by Taj Bhopali and Govind Moonis penned one song.

Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle lent their voices to songs of this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Following is the list of songs in this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Election mein maalik ke ladke khade hain Kishore Kumar, chorus

04 O o suno to jaani o o meri kahaani Asha Bhonsle
05 Meharbaan mehboob dilbar jaan-e-man Asha Bhonsle 16.05.2009

(* Note – Song number 03 mentioned above does not feature in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) in the list of songs of this movie. I have not come across any corrigendum or addendum regarding this. However, this song is very much there in the movie that is available online. I am not aware if this was added to the movie after its release?

So, the total number of songs of this movie are five and it needs to be corrected on the blog. This is also a song that does not find mention in HFGK.)

Today’s song is the third song of this movie to be posted on the blog. The earlier two songs of this movie posted on the blog were posted in the month of May’2009. That means the third song of this movie is coming after long gap of 4507 days (including 16.09.2021).

Today’s beautiful romantic song is sung by Kishore Kumar. We have Debu Mukherjee lip-syncing it on screen for Alka.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Missing Films of 1960s – 117
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A surprise discovery if ever there was one. And I have missed it all these years, having see this film long back.

‘Saara Akaash’ from 1969 – it has always been represented and listed as a songless film. This impression is so much ingrained into the system and it never came to mind to consider otherwise. So it was a great surprise to come across this clip from the film on YouTube. And suddenly the memories of this film had to be modified.

‘Sara Aakash’ (‘The Whole Sky’) is a film based on the novel of the same name, written by Rajendra Yadav. This was Yadav’s debut novel. The film marks the debut of Basu Chatterjee as director, and was also the first film of cinematographer KK Mahajan.  The film has background score by Salil Chaudhry.

The film is regarded as one of those which pioneered the New Wave cinema in India, along with ‘Uski Roti’ and ‘Bhuvan Shome’ which were also released the same year.

The star cast of the film includes Rakesh Pandey, Madhu Chakravarty, Nandita Thakur, AK Hangal, Dina Pathak, Mani Kaul, Shaily Shailendra, Jalaal Agha, Tarla Mehta, Aarti Boley and Om Prakash Gautam amongst others. Renowned film maker Mani Kaul appeared in this film, in what is considered as his only substantial screen appearance.

Set in the contemporary mid 1960s milieu of a traditional middle class joint family in Agra, the film deals with internal conflicts of a newlywed couple, both of whom find themselves unprepared for domestic life. Agra-based collegian, Samar Thakur (Rakesh Pandey), lives in a joint family consisting of his father (AK Hangal), mother (Dina Pathak), brother Amar (Mani Kaul) and his wife (Tarla Mehta); as well as a married sister, Munni, estranged from her husband. Samar is is prevailed upon by the family to marry Prabha (Madhu Chakravarty), a matriculate, much to his chagrin as this interferes with his future plans. The marriage does take place, and he soon finds that they are incompatible. The matters come to a head and Prabha leaves her matrimonial home to return to her parent’s home. She returns after four months. Family tensions continue, but then also we see a bonding emerge between the two, moving towards a healthy understanding.

KK Mahjan received the 1969 National Award for B&W cinematography, and Basu Chatterji received the Filmfare award for best screenplay.

The discovery of this background song in the film changes the status of this film, and it now becomes the 117th episode in the series on Missing Films of 1960s.

The song itself is a piece of traditional music of North India, and is played at wedding time. The words of this song indicate that the ladies on the girl’s side are singing this song, addressing the groom and tell him things about the members of his family, in a good spirited banter.

There is another version of this traditional song – it has been used in the film ‘Dushmani’ (1995). In this version, the song is presented as a praise for the bride, as she gets ready for the wedding ceremony and is being adorned with fine dress and jewellery. The song is available on YouTube as “Banno Teri Ankhiyaan Surmedaani“. On screen this song is performed by Neena Gupta.

A couple of interesting trivia.
The film ‘Saara Akaash’ was shot in the residential house of Rajendra Yadav. On a visit, when Basu Chatterji saw the house, his response was that this is the perfect setting for the film.
Dina Pathak appears in both films – in ‘Saara Akaash’ as the mother of the protagonist. In ‘Dushmani’ she appears at the grandmother of the bride Manisha Koirala.

With this post we have brought on board the 117th film in this series.


Song – Banne Re Teri Akhiyaan Surmedaani (Saara Akaash) (1969) Singer – [Unattributed], Lyrics – Traditional, MD – Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

A celebration of 100 years of Sahir Ludhianvi – his 700th song being posted on our blog.

A hundred years today. Being celebrated by the 700th post on our blog.

Sahir Ludhianvi – the “. . . Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, who would be actually “. . . Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar. . .“, being relevant for all times, and responsive to all the pitfalls and tragedies of the human experience. But then also, never to be discounted for romanticism a la “Ye Raat Ye Chaandni Phir Kahaan. . .” and “Yoon To Hamne Laakh Haseen Dekhe Hain“, or even as “Phir Na Keeje Meri Gustaakh Nigaahi Ka Gila“, or the upbeat strings of “Mere Labon Pe Dekho Aaj Bhi Taraane Hain. . .“, or even the most in depth portrayal of the bhakti (devotion) sentiment, as in “Aan Milo Aan Milo Shyaam Saanwre“, and “Tum Bansi Ho Main Taan, Ham Tum Do Nahin” and even more intense in “Aaj Sajan Mohey Ang Laga Lo. . .“.

Yes, it is the poet who is Har Ik Pal Ka Shaayar, touching all the facets of experiences of life, from the time when a child is pining for the moon as a toy, and all the way to the derelict conclusion of the human life as in “Lo Apna Jahaan Duniyawaalo, Hum Is Duniya Ko Chhod Chale“.

Sahir Sb seemed to have an affinity for the phrase ‘pal do pal’. We hear these words in ‘Railway Platform’ (1957) –

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara, Pal Do Pal Ki Yaari
Aaj Ruke To Kal Karni Hai Chalne Ki Tayaari
Basti Basti Parvat Parvat. . .

Repeated in ‘Mehmaan’ (1974)

. . .
Pal Do Pal Dhoom Machha Ley
Yoon Mar Mat Mar Mat Yaaraa

In ‘Zameer’ (1975), he would write

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal
Do Pal. . .

Then again in ‘Burning Train’ (1980), reminding us of the shades of ‘Railway Platform’

Pal Do Pal Ka Saath Hamaara
Pal Do Pal Ke Yaaraane Hain. . .

And yes, ‘Kabhi Kabhi’ (1976) of course,

Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shaayar Hoon
Pal Do Pal Meri Kahaani Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Hasti Hai
Pal Do Pal Meri Jawaani Hai

In ‘Pyaasa’ of 1957, he had posed three very profound questions in the lines of poetry he wrote for that film. At a personal level, the query was “Jaane Wo Kaise Log The Jin Ke Pyaar Ko Pyaar Mila“. On the plane of social strife and stigma he had asked “Jinhen Naaz Hai Hind Par Wo Kahaan Hain“. And then, the ultimate question of life that he has posed is “Ye Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai“. The film gains its depths, attempting to interpret and address these questions. And more than sixty years later, these questions continue to haunt the discerning mind. Timeless queries, one would say, but still, crystallized for once in words by Sahir.

There is this one incisive insight that the poet possesses, or maybe the other way round, this incisive insight possesses the poet. Each verse, each song that he has penned in his lifetime, goes well beyond the simple words that he wrote. His words, his lines offer you, nay they force you to take a pause and think – what profundity, in just this simple arrangement of 8, 10 or 15 words. And the thought will stay in the mind for much much longer that what it took to simply read the words for once.

This life, ‘zindagi’ – the incisive insight brings out so many facets that the poet examined it. In 1954, he penned the following for ‘Taxi Driver’

Ae Meri Zindagi
Aaj Raat Jhoom Le, Aasmaan Ko Choom Le
Kis Ko Pata Hai Kal Aaye Ke Na Aaye. . .

For ‘Munim Ji’in 1955, he wrote

Ek Taraf Haseen Jalwe Hain
Ik Taraf Jawaani
Zindagi Hai Zinda. . .

In 1958, his words for ‘Light House’ are

Tang Aa Chuke Hain Kashmakash-e-Zindagi Se Hum
Thukra Na Den Jahaan Ko Kahin Be-dilee Se Hum

With 1960 came ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ and the promising words are

Zindagi Bhar Nahin Bhoolegi Wo Barsaat Ki Raat. . .

1962, and it is ‘Hum Dono’, with the lines

Main Zindagi Ka Sath Nibhata Chala Gaya. . .

With ‘Aaj Aur Kal’, 1963, ‘Zindagi’ was a most depressing thought.

Maut Kitni Bhi Sangdil Ho Magar
Zindagi Se To Meharbaan Hogi

‘Chandi Ki Deewaar’ and 1964, another depressing sentiment

Kahin Qaraar Na Ho Aur Kahin Khushi Na Miley
Hamaare Baad Kisi Ko Ye Zindagi Na Mile

And then, a refreshing thought in 1965, with these lines in ‘Shagoon’,

Ham Hain Maayoos Magar Itne Bhi Maayoos Nahin
Ek Na Ek Din To Yah Ashqon Ki Ladi Tootegi
Ek Na Ek Din To Chhatenge Ye Ghamon Ke Baadal
Ek Na Ek Din To Ujaale Ki Kiran Phootegi
Zindagi Zulm Sahi Zabr Sahi Gham Hi Sahi

On to 1969, and the life is a happenstance – film is ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’,

Zindagi Ittefaaq Hai
Kal Bhi Ittefaaq Thi Aaj Bhi Ittefaaq Hai

And in the same film, we have the sobering sentiment as,

Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Khushi Ke Phool Bhi
Zindagi Ki Raah Mein Ghamon Ki Dhool Bhi
Zindagi Kabhi Yaqeen Kabhi Gumaan Hai
Har Qadam Pe Teraa-Meraa Imtahaan Hai
Zindagi Ke Rang Kai Re Saathi Re. . .

Come 1975, and it is ‘Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka’; the refrain once again is downbeat as in

Dekha Hai Zindagi Ko Kuchh Itna Qareeb Se
Chehre Tamaam Lagne Lage Hain Ajeeb Se

But then it is ‘Zameer’ in the same year that bounces back to say,

Zindagi Hansne Gaane Ke Liye Hai Pal Do Pal
Ise Khona Nahin Kho Ke Rona Nahin

Plus a more sobering thought, from the same film,

Tum Bhi Chalo Hum Bhi Chalen
Chalti Rahe Zindagi
Naa Zameen Manzil Naa Aasmaan
Zindagi Hai Zindagi

With ‘Kaala Pathar’ in 1979 came the motorcycling song that infused the bubbling spirit of freedom and hope.

Jaate Huye Qadmon Se
Aate Huye Qadmon Se
Bhari Rahegi Raahguzar
Jo Ham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ik Raastaa Hai Zindagi
Jo Tham Gaye To Kuchh Nahin
Ye Qadam Kisi Muqaam Pe
Jo Jam Gaye To Kuchh Nahin

Coming to the song being presented today. It is a wonder that I thought of, as I listened to this song today after a very long time. Yes, a child pining for getting the moon to play with. And with the ‘बाल हठ’ (a child’s obduracy), it is an overwhelming experience to be able to convince the child and talk it out of its impossible wish. As I listened, I am reminded of the story from the Ramayan – the passage where Ram, as a toddler, one day gets into His mind that he wants the moon to play with. No amount of coaxing and appeasing and promises by the parents and others can talk Him out of His insistence. And the accompanying wailing and waving of arms is making Kaushalya and Dashrath very worried and uncomfortable. Rajguru, Vashishth ji is summoned for help. He arrives and says, well, if the child is wanting the moon, give Him the moon. The parents are confused, and ask Vashishth ji, as to how to make that happen.

Rajguru asks for a large dish (‘परात’) with raised edges. The dish is placed in front of the child, and is filled with water. Instantly, the likeness of the moon is reflected in the water in the dish. So Vashishth ji beckons the child and points to the reflection and says, here is the moon, now play. So the toddler Ram, seeing that the moon is now so close, puts His hands in water, but swish and splash as He may, He is not able to hold in hand, the reflection that can be seen with the eyes. But the splashing play pleases Him, and the wailing is forgotten.

Sahir Sb is addressing the same situation in this song, likely that the child is insisting on visiting ‘Chanda Mama’. And as is the rule in Hindi films – well, you have a song to for a three-minute-disposition-of-a-difficult-situation. The lines in the song are actually trying to reason with the child, based on some simple logic statements, that aim at convincing the child that they (the three bad men in the film) are much better suited to be ‘Mamma’ to the child than the distant moon.

So there is arguments like, hads ‘Chanda Mama’ ever visited you? Has ‘Chanda Mama’ ever invited you to his place. He just sits in the sky and creates a fake uproar. Where as we (the three bad men in the film) are with you every day. We play with you, we take care of you and bring you toys. And so, as is wont in Hindi films, all it takes is three minutes of music and song to change the mind of any individual in any situation. Start the song, and you can time the mind conversion almost exactly to 3 minutes (maybe plus a few more seconds).

The video of this song is not available, but it most certainly is picturized on Geeta (role played by Baby Rani) who plays the upset little child, wanting the moon, and the three bad men – Govind, Joseph and Nazir (roles played by Pran, Ajit and Anwar Hussain respectively). The singing voice for the three bad men are back played by Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Manhar. The singing voice is not identified for a few lines at the end of the song, which are apparently lip synced by the child.

The film is ‘Nanha Farishta’ from 1969. A film by T Prakash Rao, is a touching tale of three criminals whose lives are transformed by the love a small child girl they have kidnapped. The star cast of this film includes Pran, Ajit, Anwar Hussain, Baby Rani, Padmini, Pandharibai, Balraj Sahni, Johnny Walker, Suresh, Mukri, Raj Mehra, Sunder, Maruti, and Prem Kumar.

The film has four songs, all penned by Sahir Sb. The music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji. Two of the four songs are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here, as the centenary celebration of this gifted poet. And we also add the celebration of adding the 700th song by Sahir Sb to our blog.

A very refreshingly joyful song – yes, Sahir Sb had the versatility to pen such gems also.

Listen and enjoy.

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-9 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)

In my earlier post in this series, I had mentioned that after the ‘seven-movie’ collaborations we have only three collaborations left and that they are ‘more than ten-movie collaborations’ with music directors N. Datta, S.D. Burman and Ravi.

So, out of total 717 songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi as per the total of HFGK 48% songs i.e., 347 songs are with music directors other than the above three music directors.

We have covered one of these ‘three-big’ collaborations i.e., Sahir-N. Datta collaboration in the earlier post. They collaborated for seventeen (17) movies including one un-released movie i.e., ‘Picnic-1960’. And the total number of songs from this collaboration are 108 (as per HFGK).
If we include the post before this the total number of songs now on the blog for Sahir- N Datta collaboration is 104.

Now we move to the next big collaboration which as per the total number of movies is with S.D. Burman, and Sahir and S.D. Burman collaborated for ‘eighteen’ (18) movies creating 134 songs. If we add the ‘verses’ from ‘Pyaasa-1957’ and two snippets (from ‘House no.44-1955’ and ‘Funtoosh-1956’ (as given in the book ‘The People’s Poet’ by Akshay Manwani) the total comes to 140. Well, we have 135 songs already posted on the blog for this collaboration.

I am not giving the details of movies of ‘Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration’ in today’s post. I am leaving it to be covered in another post which will be coming on a very special occasion.
However, we can have a look of the summary of Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration which is as given below;

S.no. MD Songs of lyricist in the blog Song penned by lyricist in movie as per HFGK Song penned by lyricist in movie as per the book -The People’s Poet
01 S.D. BURMAN 135 134 140

Today we are move to the next ‘one of the three great collaborations’ which is Sahir and music director Ravi.

But here we will take a pause, and listen to one of the songs of this association from the oldest pending movie ‘not yippeeee’ed’ on the blog which is ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’. (I am taking this liberty to cover one more song in this series 😊)

‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’ was directed by Jawar N Sitaraman for ‘Gemini Productions, Madras’. It had Ashok Kumar, Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Tanuja, Shashikala, Jagirdar, Aseem Kumar, Abhimanyu Sharma, Gopal Krishnan, Sharad Kumar, Lalita Kumari, Praveen Pal, Sarita Devi and others.

This movie had five songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Ravi.

So far, three songs of this movie have been posted on the blog. Today we listen to the fourth song of this movie which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and performed on screen by Mala Sinha.
I have not watched this movie ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar’, but when I listened to the today’s song it looks like a familiar song but not much heard or frequently played song.

And the composition by Ravi also appears to be a ‘Shankar-Jaikishan’ style composition.
That is what I think 😊

let us now listen to the today’s song …


Song-Jaane kyun baar baar baar mera dil (Paisa Ya Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

jis’se milte nahin
bilkul hi khayaalaat tere
kyun pareshaan hai uske liye
jazbaat tere
jab bhi wo mujhse milaa
usne sataaya mujhe
mujhko buraa to lagaa
phir bhi wo bhaayaa mujhe ae
jab bhi wo mujhse milaa
usne sataaya mujhe
mujhko buraa to lagaa
phir bhi wo bhaayaa mujhe
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

jo tere husn ki tauheen kare
us’se naa mil
jo kisi doosri sajdhaj pe mare
us’se naa mil
mujhko to jo bhi dekhe
raahon mein aahen bhare
main kyun kisi pe maroon
mujh pe zamaana marey
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

ho sake to koyi
sangeen sazaa de usko
tere qaabil nahin wo
dil se bhulaa de usko
usko bhulaaun kaise
itnaa bataa do mujhe
uska iraadaa kya hai
kuchh to bataa do mujhe
usko bhulaaun kaise
itnaa bataa do mujhe
uska iraadaa kya hai
kuchh to bataa do mujhe
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 movies of 1969 are already covered in the blog. So 20 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 13 movies of 1969 still remain to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1969 that offeres us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Beti”(1969).

Here is a Lata Mangeshkar song from “Beti”(1969). Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonik Omi.

Only the audio of the song appears to be available. The song is a bhajan. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics

chhod ke tera daar main giridhar

kis’se kahoon on dukh dard
bandhi jab tujhse ae ae ae
preet ki dor

shyaam dhun laagi
hari naam dhun laagi

shyaam dhun laagi
hari naam dhun laagi
mere man mein base nand laala

mere man mein base nand laala
ho o

“Tamanna”(1969) was directed by K P Atma for K S Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Shashikala, Agha, Nazima, Deven Verma, Nazeer Hussain, Sulochana, Sajjan, Achla Sachdev, Asit Sen, Krishn Dhaan, Rasheed Khan, Narbada Shankar, Kesri, Khairaati, Vimal Raj, Moolchand, Radheshyam, Sayyad, Md Ibrahim, Fatima, Santosh etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. To of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tamanna”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Rafi and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The O P Nayyarish Punjabi dance music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Mala Sinha, Biswajeet and others. It is a song that deserved to be better knon, but it ended up as an obscure song from an qually obscure movie.

Unnoticeably, ith this song, Kalyanji Anandji complete their 600th song in the blog as music directors.

We go to the older movie first which is ‘Nanha Farishta-1969’. One song from this movie was posted on the blog on 14.11.2014.

‘Nanha Farishta-1969’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Vijaya International, Madras’. It was produced by B. Nagi Reddi and Chakrapani. This movie was presented by B Nagi Reddi.

The playback singers for this movie are Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Manhar (the titles of the movie also mentioned the name of Balbir in the list of playback singers, however HFGK has not mentioned Balbir’s name for any song of this movie)

HFGK mentions the following four songs from this movie;

Song Posted On

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

Blog Day :

4518 Post No. : 16075

Some regulars of the blog are more keen eyed than most people and they keep looking for important events taking place in the blog. One important event happened in the blog yesterday. I became aware of it mainly because some regulars pointed it out in our whatsapp group.

On this day in the afternoon, the blog silently registered its 14 millionth visitor. The blog began 12 years ago on 19 july 2008 and it took the blog 4517 days to reach this magic figure on 29 november 2020.

Here is a summary of all the million visitors that have taken place in the blog so far :-

Visitor number Date achieved Blog day number Days taken for the million hits Remarks
1 million 25 October 2010 829 829 Slowest one million @ 1206 visitors per day
2 millions 7 November 2011 1207 378 @2645 visitors per day
3 millions 7 April 2012 1359 152 Fastest one million @ 6579 visitors per day
4 millions 10 December 2012 1606 247 @ 4049 visitors per day
5 millions 29 October 2013 1929 323 @3096 visitors per day
6 millions 12 October 2014 2277 348 @2873 visitors per day
7 millions 4 July 2015 2542 265 @ 3773 visitors per day
8 millions 20 April 2016 2833 291 @ 3436 visitors per day
9 millions 24 February 2017 3143 310 @ 3226 visitors per day
10 millions 14 January 2018 3467 324 @ 3086 visitors per day
11 millions 22 November 2018 3779 312 @ 3205 visitors per day
12 millions 4 July 2019 4003 224 @ 4464 visitors per day
13 millions 8 February 2020 4222 219 @ 4566 visitors per day
14 millions 29 November 2020 4517 295 @ 3390 visitors per day

Overall rate of visitors till now is 3099 visitors per day.

The above table shows that the blog, despite dealing in a non populist topic in a non TRP seeking manner, still draws a regular stream of visitors. It certainly serves as a source of encouragement for us.

I remember that the blog used to have visitors in trickles (in double figures in a day) during its early days. It was on 16 august 2008 that the blog touched three figures in a day for the first time. It was on 23 january 2009 (189th day of the blog) when more than one thousand visitors visited the blog for the first time. 5 August 2009 saw more than 2000 visitors for the first time in a day. The blog has even seen over ten thousand visits in a day. Here are the details:-

Date Number of visitors Blog day Remarks
19 July 2008 4 1 Only four visitors on the first day. Only occasion of single digit visitors in a day
20 July 2008 12 2 First time the blog reached double figure of visitors on the second day of the blog
16 August 2008 253 29 First time the blog reached three figures of visitors in a day
23 January 2009 1145 189 First time the blog reached four figures of visitors in a day
29 August 2009 2071 407 First time the blog reached 2000 visitors in a day
15 July 2011 3060 1092 First time the blog reached 3000 visitors in a day
4 October 2011 4137 1173 First time the blog reached 4000 visitors in a day
7 October 2011 5379 1176 First time the blog reached 5000 visitors in a day
9 October 2011 6082 1178 First time the blog reached 6000 visitors in a day
10 October 2011 7561 1179 First time the blog reached 7000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 8000 visitors in a day
12 October 2011 9824 1181 First time the blog reached 9000 visitors in a day
19 October 2011 10630 1188 First and only time the blog reached 10000 visitors in a day

It took the blog more than 1000 days before it could get 3000 plus visitors in a day. But then all of a sudden, the blog touched heights of 4000 plus, 5000 plus, 6000 plus, 7000 plus, 8000 plus , 9000 plus and 10000 plus visits in a day in the month of October 2011, all within 15 days !

All these figures are interesting figures and they have been achieved without making any conscious attempts. In fact, we are not even aware how and why these visitors find us. All we know from wordpress stats is that the blog gets hits from all around the globe. Indiais the major country where this blog gets viewed the most and USA comes second. Other major countries from where this blog gets viewed are UK, Pakistan, Malaysia, Canada, UAE, Mauritius, Australia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, South Africa etc.

All we can conclude from the above is that Hindi movie music, especially those created decades ago, enjoy good following all around the world among music lovers of Indian origin and sometimes even among non Indian origin persons. People who are looking for difficult to find songs are likely to find their way into the blog. Some of them, after stumbling upon the blog may decide to bookmark the blog for further reference.

It gives us encouragement to find that we are visited even by people who are themselves associated with HFM and they sometimes post messages in the blog or contact us as well.

The figures about visitors to the blog are in a way a reflection on the fact that the work being done in the blog for old HF songs is being noticed and appreciated. And this is just the reward that we, like most normal human beings seek. Such appreciation is just the tonic that keeps us motivated and make us do this work regularly without taking any breaks.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati”(1969). This song is sung by Rafi and Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Only the audio of the song is available as of now. This movie was produced by Surinder Kapoor and directed by Bhappi Sanie for Amar Chhaya Productions. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Babita, Kamini Kaushal, Om Prakash, Helen, Rajendra Nath, Laxmi Chhaya, Mumtaz Begum, Mohan Choti, Dhumal, Hari Shivdasani, Sudhir, Sulochana Latkar, Sujata, Snehlata, Jagadish Kamal, Maqbool, Devi Chand, Baba Benjamin, Shobha, Madan Kenny etc in it. So, my guess is that thd song was picturised on Shashi Kapoor and Babita. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.
