Remembrance day of Jaikishan :
———————————–
Today i.e. 12th September, 2020 is 49th death anniversary of Jaikishan, a half of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have just now read the detailed Wikipedia Page of Shankar-Jaikishan, so will reproduce some para’s which are worthy of mention in terms of Jaikishan’s death anniversary.

“Shankar Jaikishan enjoyed an unrivalled position in the Hindi film industry. During their heyday and even toward the later part of their career, they were the highest paid music directors in the industry. Barring stray exceptions, they were paid more than the leading actors and the promotional material of their films would give them more prominence than anyone else.”

“What can I say… my musical partner in life has gone, what is left of me to say anything more, I had never thought that at such an early age he would leave us all and go; Anyway his good qualities of maintaining goodwill, giving love and receiving love were innate in him and I too don’t have them in me. He used to regularly remind me of my innate quality of being in a boisterous mood all the time and always abrasive with some one or the other and so on and so forthwith…….”
(Shankar on Jaikishan’s death in an interview with AmeenSayani.)

The page also has this to say about Shankar Jaikishan, vis-à-vis different singers :

“Shankar Jaikishan combo worked above all of with Mohd Rafi and secondly Mukesh, and produced numbers of hits and unmatchable gems. Mohd Rafi was their favourite singer despite having good reputation with other playback singers of its time.”

I read somewhere else, that the mukhda of the song “Ye mera prempatra padh kar” from ‘Sangam’ was actually taken from the letter written by Jaikishan to his than fiancée “Priya”. So this could be the instance where Jaikishan unwittingly revealed that he is the composer of the block-buster song. This caused a rift between the two as Jaikishan broke the unwritten agreement between them, of not revealing which of them is the creator of any particular song. Here, Rafi Sahab is said to have intervened and solved the issue between Shankar and Jaikishan, and also later on between Lata Mangeshkar and Shankar in the mid 70’s.

But there is no doubt of the truth here when it is said that “Shankar-Jaikishan, along with other artists, composed “everlasting” and “immortal melodies” in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.[2] Their best work was noted for being “raga-based and having both lilt and sonority”.

All hindi film music fans agree that they changed the face of hindi film music with “Barsaat” and the success of the film and its music played a big role in this change.

The music I think was versatile and inspiring to new music directors. Theirs was a first of its kind duo, as far as I know who combined their talents and acumen with two lyrcists and made a fearsome foursome. They can also be called fabulous and formidable. They had to be, to be on top of the game for two decades. Shankar-Jaikishan can also be credited for starting the trend of version songs, one male and one female version. Contemporaries and seniors like Naushad and S.D.Burman rarely did it. Naushad in “Mere Mehboob” and S. D. Burman in “Sharmilee” and “Tere Ghar Ke saamne”. But in the later instance, it was both male solos.

I am actually trying to wrap up the long running series on Mohammad Rafi songs, so trying not to look for a Rafi Sahab song for posting on this occasion. But as luck would have it, I found this popular song from ‘Pyaar hi Pyaar’(1969). Moreover this song has a stamp of Shankar-Jaikishan signature style in the orchestration of the music. This is an Asha-Rafi duet, with the fast pace and beat. This is the manifestation of Asha Bhonsle making inroads in the Shankar Jaikishan cap, which started with “Teesri Kasam”. Shankar-Jaikishan were known for Lata only music scores through 50’s and not just for R.K. films. I think the exceptions to this were very rare and few, where Asha, Geeta Dutt or Shamshad Begum got to sing Shankar Jaikishan compositions. Suman Kalyanpur was one such alternative which Shankar Jaikishan tried, in mid- 60’s for duets with Rafi sahab.

I have also tried to find if Shankar Jaikishan ever re-used their own tune to compose songs, but could not find any such songs. Their music was a huge commercial success, so no one else could try and copy their songs.

The song I am presenting in a party song, where Vijayanthi Mala is trying to make Dharmendra jealous, flaunting a dance partner. There are other popular Rafi solos in the film, but this would be the most popular, with the title song of the film ’dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyar hi pyar beshumaar’.

Remembrance day of Mukri :

Mukri also spelled as Muqri was an Indian film actor, who worked as a comedian in Hindi films. Born as Muhammad Umar Mukri in Alibagh, in Kokani Muslim Family, he started his film career with the film Pratima along with noted film actor Dilip Kumar in 1945. Born of 5th January 1922, he left for heavenly abode on 4th September’2000 at the age of 72 years.

Mukri was seen in many films in character roles and comic role. One movie which comes to mind in ‘Ram aur Shyam”. Here also he featured with Dilip Kumar as his friend.

Today is the 20th death anniversary, so as a tribute, I have found a wonderful comic song picturized on Mukri and Mehmood. The film is ‘Madhavi’(1969), with Laxmikant –Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi as music director and lyricist. The movie had very good songs, I hear. This is the only Rafi song picturized on Mukri which remained to be posted, going by the information is Rafi sahab’s excel sheet. I expect, Mukri may not be as prolific as Mehmood, Johhny Walker or Agha. So there are most likely fewer songs where he actually sings. In this song Manna De is giving playback for Mehmood and Rafi Sahab is singing for Mukri. Now, in the absence of song video, how can I be certain of this ? I have searched on youtube, though the movie “Madhavi” is available, video of only one song is there. All other songs, only audio is available, including the song being posted. Actually, on closer inspection, there are voices of both Mehmood and Mukri are there is the song along with the singers. This is a comic song in real terms, maybe a rip-off on “Padosan” songs.

It was my husband who confirmed the playback for Mehmood and Mukri. As I was noting the lyrics this evening, he asked from where I had found this song from ‘Madhavi”. This is not a known song for me, but may husband knows the songs of this film very well.

The name did ring a bell that I had contributed the lyrics of Lata solo of the two songs posted :

parda hata de mukhda dikha de
saanjh sawere adharon pe mere

My husband also helpfully given the story outline of this costume drama film of Kings, Princes and Princesses. Sanjay Khan is a prince and Deepa, in title role of Madhavi, is a princess. Mehmood and Mukri are all part of the Sanjay Khan’s entourage. This songs is performed on stage. Pran is the Senapati of Sanjay Khan, and he has this dialogue as his ‘takiya kalaam” :

“Shaadi karungaa to sirf madhavi se, warna maut se !”

“Toofaan”(1969) was produced by S J Rajdeo and directed by Radhakant for Sargam Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Dara Singh, Anita, N.A.Ansari, Helen, adhumati, Bipin Gupta, Azad, Shabana, Sabeena, Johny Whisky, Rajan Kapoor, Jeevankala, Ratnamala, Aravind Pandya, Uma Datt, Dilip Dutt, Shri Bhagwan, Uma Khosla, Raja Bhai, Chandrakant, Master Dillu, Baby Shamshad, Ram Rasila, Dalpat Bhai, Yaseen, Badshah, Maulana, Maqbool etc in it.

“Toofaan”(1969) had five songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Today (18 june 2020) is the remembrance day of music director Daan Singh. (1927- 18 june 2011). He did not get too many opportiunities in HFM, but he created immortal songs in the few movies that he got. For instance, “My Love”(1970) had sucj=h timeless classics as Wo tere pyaar ka gham and Zikr hota hai jab qayamat ka .

His unreleased movie “Bhool Na Jaana” had such timeless classics as Gham e dil kisase kahoon , Mere humnasheen mere humnawaan and Pukaaro mujhe naam lekar pukaaro .

What a pity that “Toofaan”(1969) and “My Love” (1970) were the only released movie of Daan Singh during his heydays. Much later, he got to compose music in “Bawander”(2000), but true to his wretched luck, here also the songs were not picturised and they are available only in audio form.

As a tribute to Daan Singh, here is an all female duet from “Toofaan”(1969). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Akhtar Romani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Daan Singh.

Only the audio of the song is available. The video of the movie and the song do not appear to be available online as of now. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 24
—————————————————————————

“Anmol Moti”(1969) was produced and directed by S D Narang. The movie had Jeetendra, Babita, Rajendra Nath, Jayant, Aruna Irani, Shabnam, Jagdeep, Jayant, DK Sapru, Veena, Tuntun, Saul George, Gajanan Jagirdar, Jeevan, Hari Shivadasani, Jagdish Raj, Meena T, Prakash Thapa, Niranjan Sharma, Iftekhar, Uma Datt, Kanu Roy, Tiwari, Abhimanyu Sharma, Om Sahani, Baby Meena, Baby Mozal, Baby Neena, Basant, Hansa, Khursheed, Lajpat Mehra, Miss Gillain, Miss Kerian, Moolchand, Moses, Mrs Hacker, Narbada Shankar, Raj Deep, Rajan Kapoor, Ramesh, Ramlal, Razak, Sham, Sudha, Sundeep, Susheela, Uma Khosla etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past. The movie had made its debut ten years ago on this very day with the song Ae jaane chaman tera goraa badan .

That day ten years ago saw only two songs covered in the blog. The other song apart from the “Anmol Moti”(1969) debut song was Akela hoon main hamsafar dhoondhhta hoon from “Jaal”(1969). This movie has since been YIPPEED in the blog.

Only two songs from “Anmol Moti”(1969) have been covered in the blog. So there is choice of as many as four songs today as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post. As it is, Prakashchandra as well as Avinash Scrapwala both sent songs for this challenge, and they sent different songs ! Prakashchandra sent his contribution earlier, so I am going with the song sent by him as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This is one song that I have listened to a lot of time. It is one of those iconic songs that I used to listen to during my formative years, even though I had no clue what movie these songs were from. I have listened to this song many a times, on loudspeakers as well as Radio. It is only now, more than 50 years later, on this day 25 April 2020 that I have come to know that this iconic song is from “Anmol Moti”(1969). I can be that kind of a tubelight. 🙂

The song is picturised as a boat/ river song on Babita, with Jeetendra also making a belated appearance. Many other ladies (who appear like foreigners, perhaps from Soviet Union) are also seen in the picturisation, performing synchronised swimming, underwater swimming etc.

As mentioned earlier, lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who pips Avinash Scrapwala to the post for this “Blog Ten Year Challenge” opportunity.

Song-Dil tu hamaar lai le (Jaalsaaz)(1969) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-G S Kohli

Lyrics

dil tu hamaar lai le
thhoda thhoda pyaar dai de
dil tu humaar lai le
thhoda thhoda pyaar dai de
jahaan mein charche honge
log kya kehte honge
meri kasam
keh de sanam
humko daga na dai bey
dil tu humaar lai le
thhoda thhoda pyaar dai de
dil tu humaar lai le

nain tumse miley
ho o o o o o
nain tumse miley
mil ke sharma gayey
dil machalne laga
hum to lehra gaye
jis taraf dekhiye
tum hi tum ho sanam
ae mohabbat bata
hum kahaan aa gaye
baar baar mera manva doley
dol dol kar bas ye boley
meri kasam
keh de sanam
humko daga na dai bey
dil tu humaar lai le
thhoda thhoda pyaar dai de
dil tu humaar le le

door baithho nahin
ho o o o
door baithho nahin
paass aaya karo
log jalte rahey
tum jalaaya karo
pyaar mera kabhi
kam na hoga zara
mere dilbar mujhe aajmaaya karo
chhod chhod ye waade jhoothhe
neend chain kyun mera loote
meri kasam
keh de sanam
humko daga na dai bey
dil tu humaar lai le
thhoda thhoda pyaar dai de
dil tu humaar lai le

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 16

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah yes, this one too. This iconic and popular song from the 1969 film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, reappeared in a shorter version in the 1972 film ‘Baazigar’. Albeit the use of this song is somewhat casual, and does not seem to fulfill any purpose, symbolic or otherwise. Seems like a time filler, as one goes through the initial part of the film.

The original from the film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ is a quite a well picturized song, with the reality of the situation moving into a surreal dream where the real village people performing the song are replaced by the hero and heroine, in heroine’s mind. All the songs of this film became very popular, and did contribute significantly to the rising graph of Jeetendra as a hero.

Fast forward three years later. The film ‘Baazigar’ in 1972, was a potential launch vehicle for Roopesh Kumar (cousin brother of actress Mumtaz), as a hero. He had made his debut in 1965, in supporting roles, both as a comic villain and in character riles. This was the first, and likely the only film in which he appears in the role of a hero.

Roopesh’s real name was Abbas Farashahi. He was born in Bombay on 16th Jan, 1946 (okay, just a week back was his birth anniversary, would have been 74). His father, Ali Asgar Farashahi had a very good restaurant and bakery business.  However, being involved in dramatics in school and college, he was more interested to make a career in films. With some support from his cousin sister Mumtaz, he started working in small supporting roles. His first appearance is in the film ‘Tarzan and King Kong’ in 1965.

He appeared in over 120 films from 1965 through 1995. The list of his films do make an impressive reading. Here is a partial list of his films from the period till 1980 – ‘Sapno Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Aadmi aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ (1969), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971), ‘Andaaz’ (1971), ‘Raampur Ka Lakshman’ (1972), ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Prabhat’ (1973), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Insaaniyat’ (1974), ‘Zinda Dil’ (1975), ‘Nagin’ (1976), ‘Karm’ (1977), ‘Dildaar’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), ‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979), ‘The Great Gambler’ (1979), ‘Lok Parlok’ (1979), ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) etc.

Hmm. . . interesting to note that he also appeared in ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, the original film for the song being presented today.

He also produced and directed two films – ‘Hai Meri Jaan’ (1991) and ‘Meri Aan’ (1993).

Roopesh Kumar passed away quite unexpectedly, at a young age of 49. He was attending the Filmfare awards program of 1995. He suffered a severe heart attack while at the program, and passed away on way to the hospital.

The song presented today is picturized as a game being played at a picnic. This is a picnic with a difference. The only participants are the leading lady, Vijaylalitha and her pet animals – a horse named Chetak and a dog named Tommy. These are the screen names of these pets. Their real names, as per the credits are Joker and Johny respectively. The song is being played on a gramophone, and the game – well you can view it in the accompanying video. The song seems to have been edited, as it appears to end abruptly after playing one full stanza and getting into the start of the second stanza.

Ah yes, this 1972 film makes its debut on our blog today.

Overall, a very casual re-use in my opinion.

Song – Aa Mere Humjoli Aa, Khelen Aankh Micholi Aa  (Baazigar) (1972) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And so, we do get to a song in Saigal Sb’s voice song in this series. Memory serving right, I would have preferred to start the series with this song. But oh well. Actually, we do have a Saigal Sb song earlier in this series. But that song – “Babul Mora, Naihar Chhooto Hi Jaaye”, is rerecorded in Jagjit Singh Chitra Singh voices.

Remembering the memorable singer KL Saigal Sb – it is 73 years today, since this Divine Voice departed from this mortal world. The singer has gone away, his voice, the sound captured in the songs recorded by him, are still alive.

The re-use film is ‘Do Raaste’ (1969) and this song is used as a backdrop in two places in the film. In both scenes, the song is being played from a 78 rpm record on an old styled gramophone. Almost the entire cast of the film gets presented in the two short clips. We see Balraj Sahni, Veena, Kamini Kaushal, Rajesh Khanna, Junior Mehmood and Jayant in the first clip. There is a lady actor sitting with Kamini Kaushal in the first part – is she Kumud Bole? Also, the baby girl with Junior Mehmood – I have seen her in other films also, but I am unable to put a name to her face. Then in the second clip, in addition to the above listed cast, we also have Prem Chopra, Bindu and Mumtaz. And yes, it is Krishnakant who gazes back at us from his perch in the portrait on the wall.

In its time, ‘Do Raaste’ was a popular hit film. Rajesh Khanna was the rising star at that time, plus the music of the film became very popular. Times were when a middle class joint family homes, were presented on screen quite realistically so. The story of the film is a typical loving family scenario, and then we have unhappiness and strife intervene – a new lady joining the household and sows the seeds of step-brotherly misunderstandings. The divide goes to extremes, before things get reformed and patched up. And then it is a joint happy family all over again.

This song appears twice in the film, once at the beginning, when everything is in a relaxed mood, and the household is the blessed ‘nyaara bangla’. And then, this song is presented again close to the end of the film, when all misunderstandings have been removed, and whole family reunites and returns once again to the ‘nyaara bangla‘.

In both the scenes, the song is being played on an old gramophone, which is manually operated. It has a big sound horn attached, as we remember from the old HMV logo. Ah, the pleasures of pure sounds from the 78 rpm records – no electronics, just a very authentic reproduction of the original sound as stored in electric impulses on the shellac. The wonders that were, without the later technologies and advancements. No creation of sound reproduction technology can even come close to the sound of a 78 rpm record playing on an HMV 102 machine – hand cranked, not even electricity to power the turntable. It continues to be a marvel of that age, which is also exemplified by another unique accomplishment – single mike recording with orchestra and multiple singers. The marvels of modern acoustic technology pale in comparison.

The song also brings back the memories of the heady days in the year 2011, going across the months of May through September. The blog was a ‘song-a-day’ platform for Saigal Sb songs. By the time we ended, we had brought on board all the Hindi/Urdu songs of Saigal Sb, which are available in public domain. The mind just cannot believe it is already more than 8 years ago that we went on that exhilarating journey. The joy of getting that done was surely a wondrous taste. But then I also think with some melancholy – that no more Saigal Sb songs are to be posted on our blog. Today’s post in this series is a device that makes us remember and revisit this miracle of nature that was – the voice of Saigal Sb. I take back my words – I would prefer to use ‘is’ instead of ‘was’. I am sure you will agree – for the voice continues to be with us. That peerless, unmatched, incomparable voice, that can only be replayed now.

Our dear Arun ji has mentioned in his previous post – “Door. . . Bahut Door” from yesterday – it was Raj Khosla’s (producer director of ‘Do Raaste’) own childhood memories that probably brought this song into the film. His father loved KL Saigal songs that would often play the records at home on an old gramophone. Those memories were relived by Raj Khosla himself, as he directed ‘Do Raaste’. Wonderful revival, wonderful renewal, wonderful memory stimulant. Thanks Raj Khosla ji, and thanks to Arun ji for bringing in this connect.

The original credits of this song are – lyrics by Kedar Sharma and music by RC Boral. Singing voice of course, is the inimitable Saigal Sb. Listen yet once again to this wondrous original voice – a benefaction of God Himself.

 

Song – Ik Bangala Baney Nyaara  (Do Raaste) (1969) Singers – KL Saigal, Lyrics – Kedar Sharma, MD – RC Boral

Lyrics

ek bangla baney nyaara
ek bangla baney nyaara
rahe kunba jis mein saara
ek bangla baney nyaara
ek bangla baney nyaara

sone ka bangla, chandan ka jangla

vishvakarma ke dvaara

ati sundar pyaara pyaara
ek bangla baney nyaara
ek bangla baney nyaara

Here is that date again.

The 25th of October is a date that many Hindi film lovers, and lovers of shaayari, remember with some pain. For it was on the 25th of October 1980 that one of the tallest figures of the industry, and certainly of the world of poetry, bade farewell to us.

Sahir Ludhianvi.

I’m usually careful with my choice of adjectives, especially when using them in the superlative. But in the case of Sahir, I don’t have the slightest hesitation in saying “one of the tallest”. For he comfortably satisfies this criterion.

There have been more famous figures in the industry.

And there have certainly been more popular and liked figures in the industry. If anything, Sahir, with his uncompromising nature, and and ego and mood to match, wasn’t the easiest person to get along with.

And yet, when it comes to stature, that too in his particular field, Sahir was truly a giant.
Without belittling any of the others who also produced outstanding work in the form of lyrics, Sahir always seemed to be in a league of his own.

They say that an actor is not real – after all, it is his job to act. He is only putting on a show. Which is one reason Kishore Kumar preferred singing to acting. He felt a singer can put his heart and soul into a song, whereas an actor’s job is to pretend.

A lyricist goes a step further than even a singer.

While a singer can put his heart and soul into a song, he does not create it. He only renders it.

The text comes from the lyricist.

And therefore the lyricist has the best chance of putting his heart and soul into his creation. He talks to his audience through his lines. He can use his poetry as an outlet for his thoughts, his feelings, his joys and his frustrations.

And I feel no one did this better than Sahir.

With Sahir, what you saw was what you got.

Sahir was pretty much an open book in terms of his preferences, his likes and dislikes. Nothing duplicitous or fake about him. He had strong views on certain topics, and he had absolutely no qualms about expressing them.

He even got into trouble early in his life with the Government of Pakistan for this reason – and fled Lahore (and thus, Pakistan) to come to India in 1949.

Imagine if this had not happened. Imagine what might have been lost to us.

Whatever issues Indians might have with the Government of Pakistan, I thank the Pakistan Government, on behalf of all Indians, for creating an “enabling” environment for Sahir to move to India. 🙂

And Sahir never looked back.

From “thandi hawayen” (Naujawan-1951), the song that got him noticed, to “pal do pal ka saath hamaara” (The Burning Train-1980), one of the last films for which he wrote lyrics, Sahir was one of the most highly regarded lyricists of his time.

I remember saying this before. When Sahir passed away, I only knew his name as a lyricist. In those days, still a teenager, I had limited knowledge of song details. I’d know the song, and the singer. Yes, some chance I’d know the composer, but unless I’d listened carefully to the lyricist’s name while listening to it on radio, not much chance I’d know the lyricist. In those days, to be honest, I enjoyed songs without knowing whether it was a Majrooh or Sahir or Shailendra or Hasrat Jaipuri song.

With this limited knowledge, I read the obituary on Sahir in the Illustrated Weekly of India in 1980. It was a fairly long obituary, and naturally many of his songs were mentioned.

That was when it hit me.

Oh, “aage bhi jaane na tu” was Sahir’s?

And “ye raat ye chaandni phir kahaan”?

Oh, and “udey jab jab zulfen teri” also?

And “abhi na jao chhod kar”?

And “zindagi bhar nahin bhoolegi wo barsaat ki raat?”

And “tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega”?

Oh, and “jeevan ke safar mein raahi” also?

And “tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana le”?

There were many more – and each one was a song I knew, a classic. Yet, such was my pathetic knowledge at the time of who the lyricist was, that I never realized these were all Sahir.

At that time, if you’d asked me to mention a few Sahir songs, I’d have come up with Pyaasa and Kabhie Kabhie songs. These I always knew as Sahir songs. But I am ashamed now to think of how ignorant I otherwise was.

It was only at that moment I realized what a legend Sahir had been. And what the world had lost.

After that, I paid a lot more attention to the lyricist, while listening to songs.

And often it was Sahir.

Much later in life, I read that it was only on Sahir’s insistence that All India Radio itself started mentioning the name of the lyricist also, in its radio programmes.

It was not only the name of the lyricist, but also the lyrics themselves, that I started paying attention to.

And that is when I realized that Sahir’s lyrics were different.

They were deep, they conveyed an emotion that came from the heart – and often a strong emotion at that. They were not the “baith ja, baith gayi, khadi ho ja, khadi ho gayi” types.

If today lyrics are a very big, in fact the biggest, part of my love for a song, it is entirely due to Sahir. I listen to lyrics carefully today – no appreciation of a song is complete for me, without appreciating the lyrics.

Whether Sahir was writing romantic poetry (“abhi na jao chhod kar”) or mocking the government for its failures (“cheen-o-Arab hamaara”), whether he was lamenting the state of society (“jinhe naaz hai Hind par wo kahaan hain”), or trying to uplift those seemingly with no hope (“wo subah kabhi to aayegi”), whether he was exhorting the oppressed to fight for their rights (“ponchh kar ashq” , “na munh chhupa ke jiyo”), or showing a mirror to society about its treatment of women (“aurat ne janam diya mardon ko”), whether he was trying to promote communal harmony (“tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega”), or talking about the futility of war (“khuda-e-bartar”), every single time Sahir’s lyrics tugged at your heart strings.

Not just because the poetry was beautiful and the lyrics powerful (which they absolutely were), but because you could feel that every word was written with heart and soul. No wonder it went straight from Sahir’s heart to our hearts.

You could feel Sahir’s anguish and despair when he says “ye duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai”. Or his cynicism when he says “aasmaan pe hai khuda aur zameen pe hum, aajkal wo is taraf dekhta hai kam”.

At the same time, you could feel the romance in the air, with “tum agar saath dene ka waada karo” and “parbaton ke pedon par”. Just listen to poetry like “thehre thehre paani mein, geet sarsaraate hain….bheege bheege jhonkon mein, khushbuon ka deraa hai”. Waah!
And “abhi na jao chhod kar”, one of my alltime favourites, and surely one of the most perfect songs ever in every respect.

Sahir’s poetry for the hurt felt by the jilted lover was no less powerful. “Jaane wo kaise log the jinke pyaar ko pyaar milaa”. Or lines like “laut rahi hain meri sadaayen, deewaaron se sar takra ke….haath pakad kar chalne waale, ho gaye rukhsat haath chhuda ke (sad version of in hawaon mein)”. And of course, “chalo ek baar phir se ajnabi ban jaayen hum dono” with lines like “wo afsaana jisey anjaam tak laana na ho mumkin, usey ek khoobsoorat mod dekar chhodna achha”.

Then you have the Barsaat Ki Raat qawwalis. Roshan’s masterpiece “na to karwaan ki talaash hai” merging into “ye ishq ishq hai ishq ishq” is one of the greatest ever compositions in Hindi cinema, with Sahir’s contribution in lyrics being no less significant. With lines like “jo dawaa ke naam pe zeher do, us chaaraagar ki talaash hai”.

I can go on and on. Dharamputra, Taj Mahal, Aaj Aur Kal, Mujhe Jeene Do, Chitralekha, Kaajal, Waqt, Neel Kamal, Humraaz, Bahu Begum, Aadmi Aur Insaan. Each one with memorable lyrics. One of my favourites is “poochhe koi ki dard-e-wafaa kaun de gaya, raaton ko jaagne ki sazaa kaun de gaya…kehne se ho malaal, to hum kya jawaab dein….duniya kare sawaal, to hum kya jawaab dein”.

Although Sahir was less productive in the 70s, he still came up with poetry that reminded us of Sahir of yore. The 70s was a decade where poetry began steadily losing ground to more “chaalu” lyrics. Urdu also began losing ground in the process.

This was a development that Sahir could not prevent, but did leave him disillusioned. His “main pal do pal ka shaayar hoon” very correctly represents his then state of mind. He continued to write though, but mostly for the Chopra family’s films, for films like Karm, Trishul, Insaaf Ka Tarazu, Kaala Patthar and The Burning Train.

Since Sahir started as a poet, and moved into film song lyrics, the sense of poetry comes across strongly in his lyrics. Much like with Kaifi Azmi.

So much for Sahir’s poetry. No one can do justice to it in one article. I’ve barely scraped the surface.

But what really makes me put Sahir on a different pedestal altogether is not the QUALITY of his poetry, but the CONTENT of his poetry.

Clearly Sahir was a rebel, a non-conformist.

And his poetry often reflected this, since he wrote straight from the heart.

But importantly, he never shied away from expressing his views. He never tried to be politically correct. He showed society a mirror, whether society liked it or not. For example, his line “kaho ji tum kya kya khareedoge, yahaan to har cheez bikti hai” is a much underrated, but powerful, line, in my opinion.

Yes, he railed and ranted – whether it made a difference or not. “Samaj ko badal daalo” he wrote.

Today, 39 years after his death, we are still languishing with most of the ills that existed in Sahir’s time, and which he spoke against.

It is a sad commentary of our times that many of his laments feel just as relevant today as they felt then. Yes, “aurat ne janam diya mardon ko, mardon ne usey bazaar diya” and “tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega, insaan ki aulad hai insaan banega” are just as relevant in 2019, as they were in 1958-59.

If Sahir were alive today, he’d probably be writing just as strongly today as he wrote then. The issues haven’t gone, sadly only Sahir has.

That’s a sobering thought.

Now, let’s move on to the song for today.

It’s from the 1969 film, Paisa Ya Pyaar.

As has now become customary :-), the lyrics for this song have been sent to me by Avinashji.

I remember seeing this film as a young boy, but I don’t remember the story now. It was a remake of a Tamil film Panama Paasama, starring Gemini Ganesan and Saroja Devi, which was a pretty big hit at the time. In fact, the name Panama Paasama, translates in Hindi to Paisa Ya Pyaar.

I remember the song “Ber lo, ber lo” was a lift from the very popular “yelantha pazham yelantha pazham” song of Panama Paasama. 🙂

But today’s song is different. It is a typical Sahir song – Insaan ne paise ke liye.

Here, Sahir’s lament is about how money destroys relationships. He talks about how people lose everything, even their own self-respect, for money. He concludes by saying that love is the biggest wealth there is.

The song is sung by Hemant Kumar, music composed by Ravi.

Please do listen.

I’d like to end by saying that Sahir was wrong in one respect.

He wrote

“kal koi mujh ko yaad kare
kyon koi mujhko yaad kare
masroof zamaana mere liye
kyon waqt apna barbaad kare”

Sahir saab, I can only say you grossly underestimated our love and respect for you.

jo aapse mila hai, wo itna hai anmol
roz sunte hain, aap hi ke hum bol
aap ko bhool jaayen, ye mumkin nahin
aap ki yaad na aaye, aisa koi din nahin

Thank you SO MUCH for what you’ve given us, Sahir saab.

And, very importantly, for just being you.

Song-Insaanon ne paise ke liye aapas ka pyaar mita daala (Paisa Ya Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhainvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics (based on audio link) (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa
Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa
Hanste baste ghar phoonk diye
Dharti ko narak banaa daalaa

Mitti se nikaala sone ko
Sone se banaaye mahal magar
Mitti se nikaala sone ko
Sone se banaaye mahal magar
Jazbaat ke naazuk rishton ko
Mitti ke taley dafnaa daalaa
Insaanon ne
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

Deen aur dharam ko haar diya
Neki ko badi par waar diyaa
Deen aur dharam ko haar diya
Neki ko badi par waar diyaa
Mandir Masjid aur Girjon ko
Bankon ki bhent chadhaa daalaa
Insaanon ne
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

Daulat ki hawas mein logon ne
Kya kya na kiya is duniya mein
Kya kya na kiya is duniya mein
Chaahat izzat mehnat gairat
Sabkaa neelaam uthhaa daalaa
Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

Pyaar apne jagah khud daulat hai
Ye baat na samjhi insaan ne
Pyaar apne jagah khud daulat hai
Ye baat na samjhi ee insaan ne
Kudrat ke banaayi daulat ka
Sikkon mein mol lagaa daalaa
Insaanon ne ae
Paise ke liye
Aapas ka pyaar mitaa daalaa

इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला
इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला
हँसते बसते घर फूँक दिए
धरती को नरक बना डाला

मिटटी से निकाला सोने को
सोने से बनाए महल मगर
मिटटी से निकाला सोने को
सोने से बनाए महल मगर
जज़्बात के नाज़ुक रिश्तों को
मिटटी के तले दफना डाला
इंसानों ने
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

दीन और धरम को हार दिया
नेकी को बदी पर वार दिया
दीन और धरम को हार दिया
नेकी को बदी पर वार दिया
मंदिर मस्जिद और गिरिजों को
बैंकों की भेंट चढ़ा डाला
इंसानों ने
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

दौलत की हवस में लोगों ने
क्या क्या न किया इस दुनिया में
क्या क्या न किया इस दुनिया में
चाहत इज्ज़त मेहनत गैरत
सबका नीलाम उठा डाला
इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

प्यार अपने जहाँ खुद दौलत है
ये बात न समझी इंसान ने
प्यार अपने जहाँ खुद दौलत है
ये बात न समझी ई इंसान ने
कुदरत के बनायी दौलत का
सिक्कों में मोल लगा डाला
इंसानों ने ए
पैसे के लिए
आपस का प्यार मिटा डाला

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.

Lyrics

hey jagat pita parmatma

dukh haro dayalu
ab sukh do
sab avgun mere

parbhu karo Kshama
parbhu karo kshama
hey jagat pita parmatma

aaaa aaaaa

tumko to karodon saal huye
batlaao gagan gambhir
is pyaari pyaari duniya mein
kyun alag alag taqdeer
tumko to karodon saal huye
batlaao gagan gambhir
is pyaari pyaari duniya mein
kyun alag alag taqdeer

milte hain kisi ko bin maange hi moti
oo oo oo
koi maange lekin bheekh naseeb na hoti
oo oo oo
kya soch ke hai malik ne rachi
ye do rangi tasveer
is pyaari pyaari duniya mein
kyun alag alag taqdeer
tumko to karodon saal huye
batlaao gagan gambhir
is pyaari pyaari duniya mein
kyun alag alag taqdeer

kuch kismatwaale sukh se amrit peete
oo oo oo
kuch dil par rakh pathar jeewan jeete
oo oo oo
kahin mann panchhi aakaash ude
kahin paanv padi zanjeer
is pyaari pyaari duniya mein
kyun alag alag taqdeer
tumko to karodon saal huye
batlaao gagan gambhir
is pyaari pyaari duniya mein
kyun alag alag taqdeer

kyun alag alag taqdeer

kyun alag alag taqdeer

kyun alag alag taqdeer

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

आss आsss
आss आsss

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

मिलते हैं किसी को बिन मांगे ही मोती
ओ ओ ओ
कोई मांगे भी तो भीख नसीब ना होती
ओ ओ ओ
क्या सोच के है मालिक ने रची
ये दो रंगी तस्वीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
तुमको तो करोड़ों साल हुये
बतलाओ गगन गंभीर
इस प्यारी प्यारी दुनिया में
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

कुछ किस्मत वाले सुख से अमृत पीते
ओ ओ ओ
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
क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर

क्यों अलग अलग तक़दीर
