Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 21
———————————————–

Ashapurna Devi (1909-1995) was a Bengali novelist who wrote more than 200 novels, over 2000 short stories and over 50 children’s books during her life time. It is to her credit that she could contribute so much to the Bengali literature despite being born in a very conservative Bengali joint family in which female members of the household were not allowed to attend school. For male members, private teachers were appointed who will teach them in their home. It is during this time, Ashapurna Devi learnt Bengali alphabets albeit clandestinely when her brothers were being taught in the house. She won many coveted literary awards including Jnanpith Award for her novel Prothom Protishruti (The First Promise) in 1976.

Many films have been made based on the novels and stories written by Ashapurna Devi. Some of them are ‘Agni Pariksha’ (Bangla, 1954), ‘Padikkathai Methai’ ( Tamil, 1960), ‘Chhaaya Surya’ (Bangla, 1963), ‘Mavana Magalu’ (Kannada, 1965), ‘Chhoti Si Mulaaqat’ (Hindi, 1967), ‘Baluchari’ (Bangla, 1968), ‘Prothom Protishruti’ (Bangla, 1971) ‘Anindita’ (Bangla, 1972), ‘Chaitali’ (Bangla, 1971 and Hindi, 1975), ‘Tapasya’ (Hindi, 1976), and ‘Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi’ (2008). The list is not exhaustive.

‘Chaitali’ (1971, Bangla film) was one of the films based on a story of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. The film was directed by Sudhir Mukherjee. The main cast included Biswajeet, Tanjua, Basanta Chowdhury, Jahar Ray, Tarun Kumar, Biren Chatterjee, Manmohan etc.

Although a few of Ashapurna Devi’s novels and short stories have been translated in English and published, I could not locate the story of Chaitali on-line. Probably, this story may be a part of the collections of her stories in Bangla only which I cannot read. The film is available on a video sharing platform in three parts without English sub-titles. So, my understanding of the story of the film is based the visuals and some Hindi dialogues given to the characters of Lajjo (Tanuja), Nawab Sahab (Basanta Chowdhury) and Kumar Sahab (Manmohan) in it.

The film starts with Amitabh, (Biswajit), an engineer travelling from his home town on transfer to his new place of work to oversee the construction of new road (The outdoor shooting of the place with hills and the snow-capped mountains appears to be somewhere between Siliguri and Darjeeling). He is taken to the site office and thereafter to his quarters with a caretaker attached to it. On the very first day, Kumar Sahab (Manmohan) who is not only one of the contractors for the road work but also a notorious local bully, visits the quarter to meet Amitabh. He refuses to meet him by saying that he would prefer official meetings in the site office only. This create the first friction between Kumar Sahab and Amitabh.

Lajjo (Tanuja), an orphaned girl from Hindi heartland stays with her tyrannical aunt in the neighborhoods of Amitabh’s quarters. Because, she has no one else to share her feelings, she finds solace in spending time in the house of an old man, Nawab Sahab (Basanta Chowdhury) who is her neighbour. Nawab Sahab is an admirer of Gurudev Rabindra Tagore’s works. He has taken the task of translating some of Tagore’s works in Urdu and Persians. He is also into music.

Lajjo is a milkmaid who supplies milk to Amitabh’s quarters in the morning. There is always some friction between Lajjo and the caretaker over the late supplies of milk or the quality of milk. But Amitabh always take a sympathetic disposition towards Lajjo whenever his caretaker complains against her. Sometime, Lajjo also does household works in the quarters. Over a period of time, Amitabh develops soft corner for her. He starts teaching her Bangla alphabets and conversation in Bangla which she picks up fast. This is not liked by Nawab Sahab and he gives subtle hint to Amitabh. So, now on, he keeps a distance with Lajjo.

Simultaneously, Amitabh has problems with the quality of road work done by Kumar. So, he postpones the payments of his bills for work done until he personally inspects the road. He also orders his staff to bring out old files pertaining to Kumar’s work. This creates panic for Kumar. He engages his henchmen to intercept Amitabh while on an inspection trip in the forest. However, due to heavy rains and landslides, he is not able to visit the place. In the quarters, the caretaker is worried as he thinks that Amitabh is caught in the landslides. After hearing this news, Laajo who has also kept a distance from Amitabh due to Nawab Sahab insistence, runs to search for him. She finds Amitabh safe in a tent. The meeting ignites their love for each other. They return home after the rains have subsided.

Having failed in an attempt to immobilise Amitabh and also to make his old files missing, Kumar plans a conspiracy in which he pays money to Lajjo’s aunt to facilitate her kidnapping. While going to fetch waters from the river, Lajjo gets kidnapped by his henchmen and blames Amitabh for it since both have been last seen together while returning from his inspection duty and both are missing since then. The fact is that Amitabh has gone to his hometown to meet his brother.

When Amitabh returns from home town, police arrests him on charge of kidnapping Lajjo. He is taken to the police station. However, before he is being questioned, Lajjo’s aunt under pressure from Nawab Sahab confesses her role in Lajjo’s kidnapping. She is arrested. Lajjo runs away from the kidnappers and reaches the police station to tell her side of the story. Amitabh is released and Lajjo comes back and visit Nawab Sahab’s house only to find that Kumar and his henchmen have cornered Nawab Sahab. In the scuffle between him and Kumar, Nawab Sahab gets seriously injured from the bullet fired by Kumar. Before, he could recapture Lajjo, police forces get hold of him and he is arrested. Nawab Sahab dies and Lajjo becomes once again an orphan with her aunt in the jail and Nawab Sahab dead. The film ends with Amitabh and Lajjo meeting at the burial ground who would now take care of her.

Many internet sites refer the Hindi version, ‘Chaitali’ (1975) produced under the banner of Bimal Roy Productions, as a remake of the Bangla version of the film. But it is not so. There are subtle differences between the two versions of the film. In Bangla version, the character of the hero is that of an Engineer who is posted on the site office to oversee the road construction work. In the Hindi version, the hero is a professor in the college and stays in a joint family. Secondly, the character of Lajjo (Chaitali) in Bangla version is different than in Hindi version in which she has been shown as a kleptomaniac and she get reformed after working with a loving joint family.

Rinki Bhattacharya, the daughter of Bimal Roy in a very recent interview (February 2020) has revealed that her father had planned the film with a title ‘Sahara’ based on Ashapurna Devi’s short story ‘Chaitali’ and some shots were filmed in early 1966 with Dharmendra and Sharmila Tagore. But he fell ill on the set from which he never recovered. After a gap of 8 years, the film was started afresh under the direction of Hrishikesh Mukherjee with the ‘Chaitali’ as the title of the film replacing Sharmila Tagore with Saira Banu. The film did not fare well on the box office.

In keeping with the Hindi speaking role of Chaitali, the Bangla version of the film had 3 Hindi songs out of 8 songs. I am presenting one of the two Lata solos, ‘paayal baaj gayi aaj meri laaj gayi’ which is written by Anand Bakshi. All the songs (Hindi and Bangla) in the film were set to music by S D Burman. The tune of the song appears to be based on a Nepali folk song to me.

It is interesting to note that after ‘Samar’ (1950, Bangla film), S D Burman had not composed songs in any Bangla films until ‘Chaitali’ (1971) and this film became his last Bangla film as well.

Preamble of the Indian Constitution

WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:

JUSTICE, social, economic and political;

LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;

EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;

and to promote among them all FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty sixth day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.

 

Components of Preamble
1. It is indicated by the Preamble that the source of authority of the Constitution lies with the people of India.
2. Preamble declares India to be a sovereign, socialist, secular and democratic republic.
3. The objectives stated by the Preamble are to secure justice, liberty, equality to all citizens and promote fraternity to maintain unity and integrity of the nation.
4. The date is mentioned in the preamble when it was adopted i.e. November 26, 1949.

Key Words In The Preamble

1. Sovereign

The term ‘Sovereign’ which is proclaimed by the Preamble means that India has its own independent authority and it is not a dominion of any other external power. In the country, the legislature has the power to make laws which is subjected to certain limitations.

2. Socialist

The term ‘Socialist’ was added in the Preamble by 42nd Amendment, 1976 which means the achievement of socialist ends through democratic means. It is basically a ‘Democratic Socialism’ that holds faith in a mixed economy where both private and public sectors co-exist side by side.

3. Secular

The term ‘Secular’ was incorporated in the Preamble by 42nd Constitutional Amendment, 1976 which means that all the religions in India get equal respect, protection and support from the state.

4. Democratic

The term ‘Democratic’ implies that the Constitution of India has an established form of Constitution which gets its authority from the will of the people expressed in an election.

5. Republic

The term ‘Republic’ indicates that the head of the state is elected by the people directly or indirectly. In India, the President is the head of the state and he is elected indirectly by the people.

BR Ambedkar said about the preamble:-

It was, indeed, a way of life, which recognizes liberty, equality, and fraternity as the principles of life and which cannot be divorced from each other: Liberty cannot be divorced from equality; equality cannot be divorced from liberty. Nor can liberty and equality be divorced from fraternity. Without equality, liberty would produce the supremacy of the few over the many. Equality without liberty would kill individual initiative. Without fraternity, liberty and equality could not become a natural course of things.

As today we all are celebrating the 71 Republic Day , being the day of inception of the constitution of India, I thought that we should start this post with ‘The Preamble to the Constitution’.  The Preamble though is very much part of the constitution itself.

I have the great pleasure of writing the post on this song celebrating the very appropriateness of the justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. This is also the song which brought me to this blog incidentally on 25th of January 2011, and this was my first comment on this blog’s farmaish page.

I have surfed the net all over for this song/nazm:

khud jiyo auron ko bhi jeene do,
yehi to hai zindagi ka raasta,
tumhien aman ka shanti ka vasta,

This is not available even on youtube. i am very much surprised did not anticipate this difficulty. This was widely used in school assembly , and i found on some website that today itself that it is sung by the great Mohammed Rafi (also). Frankly i was expecting many versions (by various singers). If u could find and just send the lyrics at least, on urgent basis. i shall be ever grateful.

It was exactly 9 years ago that I stumbled upon this blog and life as I knew it before, changed for me.  In many ways I can define the journey of my life before and after 26th January 2011.

Now about the page “Readers farmaishes” :  I wonder at how beautifully the word “Farmaish” has adapted to its Anglicized plural ‘farmaishes’. Another unique word which require a few sentences to get at the spirit of it, in any other language.  Google’s English is showing the pathetically legal “Petition”, or it is most likely a Victorian equivalent. The concept of ‘farmaishi programme’ is so intrinsically Indian, be it a much indulged child’s or an overindulged housewife’s.  Or it fits us ‘spoilt-for-choices’ lovers of Hindi film music.

So it turns out that all those years ago I was looking for the lyrics of this song and in my search found that it is a Rafi song picturized on Prithvi Raj Kapoor in a classroom singing in front of school children. That time, the archives page of the website of Films Division of India was empty. I was searching the youtube intermittently for this song, in the hope that it will surface somehow.  I tried everything I could for this was a Rafi song and no effort was to be spared.  As luck would have it a few months ago I again searched for it and this time found a FDI film ‘Khud Jiyo Auron Ko Bhi Jeene Do’ in the Films Division archives pages. I requested Sudhir Sir to try and find the song, if it exists.

A few days ago Sudhir Sir had emailed me that the song is located and he had the video of the song, but it was not Rafi Sahab’s song. A decade old search has come to an end. All the info pertaining to it was correct, except for the singing voice. But when I heard the song today, when Sudhir Sir, sent the upload link to me, I am so glad that I persisted in the search, my search and quest is very much justified. Though it is not in Rafi Sahab’s voice, but a wonderfully worthy song written, composed and sung by the multi-talented Prem Dhawan. All the thanks and gratitude we the listeners, the beneficiaries of hard work of Sudhir Sir, can give to him, are just not enough.

The tune, voice, rendition and the lyrics are all soothing to the jaded soul.

“Chandan”(1971) was produced and directed by Kewal Mishra for Kewal Art Production, Bombay. The movie had The movie had Som Dutt, Joginder Shelly, Komal aka Poonam Sinha, Jayashree.T., Zeb Rehman, Dilip Dutt, Ramesh Deo, Ram Mohan, Birbal, Mohan Choti, V.Gopal, Kishan, Meenakshi, Renu Joshi, M.Sahgal, Coca cola, Dhanraj, Asi Dutt, Kishan, Kishore Kumar etc in it.

Som Dutt, the brother of Sunil Dutt, was launched by Sunil Dutt with “Man Ka Meet”(1968). Instead of Som Dutt gettinmg launched, that film helped Vinod Khanna getting launched.

It can be seen that Kewal Mishra saw enough in Som Dutt to sign him up as the hero for his movie. Seeing that the movie ended up belly up at the box office. I have no idea what he thought about this flop venture of his.

Not just the movie, even its songs ended up as forgotten.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. That was in 2013. While covering that song, I had mentioned that I had never heard of that movie and the song. Same can be said about this song under discussion as well. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mukesh. Omkar Verma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sonik Omi.

The song is picturised as a typical chhed chhad turning into love kind of song on Komal (later better known as wife of Shatrughan Sinha) and Som Dutt. I found it a nice hummable song the very first time I listed to it.


Song-Ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan (Chandan)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Mukesh, Lyrics-Omkar Verma, MD-Sonik Omi

Lyrics

ho kaahe chhede
ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri baali umariya
ja ja ja
ho kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri baali umariya
o
oho ri gori hoga tera ehsaan
milaa le zara mujhse najariya

na na na na na
kaahe chhede mujhe re beiman
abhi hai meri baali umariya

masti bhari ye teri chikni jawaani
bol hai ri gori kiske liye

arre ja re deewaane tere jaise kayi
dekh ke re mujhe fisla kiye
masti bhari ye teri chikni jawaani
bol hai ri gori kiske liye

ja ja re deewaane tere jaise kayi
dekh ke re mujhe fisla kiye
ho gori sadiyon se main hoon tera deewaana
o chal deewaane tu paas mere aana na
tu maar dil pe najar ka nishaana
ho aaj ye shikaari bana anjaan
dekho ji dekho pakde machhariya
sun le sun le
ho gori hoga tera ehsaan
milaa le zara mujhse najariya

kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri bali umariya

jhootha hai tu re daghaabaaz chhaliya
dil mein re tere chor chhupa hai
oho mujhko hi samhje hai tu chor goriye
tujhpe mera jahaan luta hai

haaye jhoothha hai tu re daghaabaaz chhaliya
dil mein re tere chor chhupa hai
oho mujhko hi samhje hai tu chor goriye
tujhpe mera jahaan luta hai

o teri baaton pe main na aitbaar karoon
ho gori janmon se tujhko main to pyaar karoon
o sun deewaane zamane se dar tu
o gori kahna mera zara maan
banaa le mujhe apna sanwariya

kaahe chhede mujhe re beimaan
abhi hai meri baali umariya
gori hoga tera ehsaan
milaa le zara mujhse najariya

Commemorating Naushad Sahab’s 100th birth anniversary on 25th December 2019 :
————————————————————————————
Naushad Sahab’s journey as a music director is an astounding journey of 65 years beginning from 1940 to 2005. This is as in active working career. Born in Lucknow on 25th December, 1919, he completed his journey of the mortal existence on 5th May, 2006, in Mumbai. He is described as a composer, music director, film producer, writer, and a poet. Also credited for being the major contributor towards incorporating Hindustani classical into film music right from the 40’s.

I have just now found a portion of the thumri extracted from the movie “Paakezah” where it plays in the background in one of the scene’s. I have often seen references to the lost thumris of “Paakeezah”. They all have been used in the film in different scenes.

This particular thumri is having a famous ghazal by Mir Taqi Mir ‘dekh to dil ke jaan se utthtaa hai …..ye dhuaan sa kahan se utthtaa hai”. This ghazal has been immortalized by many singers in recorded version too. One of those versions by Mehdi Hasan was used in the background of one scene in Sai Pranjpe’s “Chashme Bad-door”. That also is a one memorable scene, where the friends sharing accommodation in Delhi, sharing much more including their cigarette’s are Farooq Shaikh, Rakesh Bedi and Ravi Baswani, while this ghazal is playing in the background. The full ghazal’s link is here.

I am giving the link here as those interested can see the full ghazal and can try and understand the spirit of it through meaning of words and terms also.

In the stats page, there are 3 songs credited to Mir Taqi Mir, so this should be the fourth. Two songs namely Patta patta boota boota from “Ek nazar” and dikhaayi diye yoon ke bekhud kiya I could connect with Mir Taqi Mir. Third one I couldn’t find.

He finds mention in this Mirza Ghalib Sha’ir:

Rekhte ke ek tumhi ustaad nahi Ghalib
Kehte hain agle zamaane mein koi ‘Mir’ bhi thha
Actually in the portion of this ghazal used in the film is only two sha’irs with words in the matla’a changed. Actual words are like this :
ishq ik ‘Mir’ bhari patthar hai
kab ye tujh na-tawaan se utthta hai

Here is the word “na-tawaan”. I have just recently written a hindi poem, which has this word “na-tawaan”, which I simply must share here.

आहट
जो मैं सुनती हूँ अँधेरों में
वो आहट, क्या तुम्हें भी सूनाई देती है
इन दीवारों की गहरी खौफनाक दराडों में
अनगिनत नातवां चींटियाँ दफन हैं
इन चींटियों को क्या हक़ था
की वो महलों के ख्वाब देखतीं
खुद को बुलबुल जान कर
गुलिस्ताँ में चहचहाती
क्या यह उनका अपना गुलिस्ताँ था
फिर क्यूँ वो इतना खिलखिलाती थीं ?
फिर जो भारी गूंज उठी गुलिस्ताँ में
बुलबुलों का चहचहाना बंद हो गया
क्यूंकी एक खूबसूरत इमारत जो बननी थी
उस में कुछ खुश्क रंगों की ज़रूरत थी
अति सुंदर, रंगीन, अंतिम लिबादा ओढ़े
सामने वही खूबसूरत इमारत खड़ी है
जो मैं सुनती हूँ अँधेरों में
वो आहट, क्या तुम्हें सूनाई देती है ।

This small portion of the ghazal in thumri format is composed by Naushad and singer is Naseem Chopra. This song is a debut for Naseem Chopra in the blog, as her name is not featuring in the ‘stats’ page.

Lyrics

Dekh to dil ke jaan se utthtaa hai ae
Ye dhuaan sa kahaan se utthtaa hai
Ye dhuaan sa kahaan se utthtaa hai
Ishq ek ‘Mir’ bhaari patthar hai
Ishq ek ‘Mir’ bhaari patthar hai
Bojh itnaa kahaan se utthtaa hai
Ye dhuaan sa kahaan se utthtaa hai

देख तो दिल के जाँ से उठता है
ये धुआँ सा कहाँ से उठता है
ये धुआँ सा कहाँ से उठता है
इश्क़ एक ‘मीर’ भारी पत्थर है
इश्क़ एक ‘मीर’ भारी पत्थर है
बोझ इतना कहाँ से उठता है
ये धुआँ सा कहाँ से उठता है

Blog Day : 4161 Post No. : 15331

8th December is the 75th birthday of Rinku or Begum Ayesha Sultana Khan who also is known by the name Sharmila Tagore. What was not known is that she was born in Hyderabad. (I didn’t know, the stalwarts of the blog may be aware). She looked so delicate and fragile in “Kashmir Ki Kali” (1964) – her Hindi debut, having debuted in Bengali in 1959 through Satyajit Ray’s “Apur Sansar”; the need to protect her from Pran must have come naturally to Shammi Kapoor. She has a super-sweet smile too with deeeep dimples that form whenever she smiles. It was not as if she excelled only in glamourous baby-doll type of roles; she was comfortable even when she played the roles of mother and daughter – Chanda/ Kajri- in Gulzar’s “Mausam” (1975). 1975 saw her in five movies “Mausam”, “Chupke Chupke”, “Faraar”, “Amanush”, “Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka” and the character she played in each of them were completely different from each other.

I started following her from “Chupke Chupke” and then have seen many of her movies from the 60s and 70s on various media- Doordarshan, Satellite Television, YouTube etc. Had been very impressed by her in “Kashmir Ki Kali”, “Anupama”, “Satyakam” and “Viruddh” in the recent times. She was last seen on-screen in 2010 released “Break Ke Baad”. But videos of this elegant lady can be seen on YouTube in interviews etc where she speaks of her life and career and how her sister Oindrila Tagore (Tinku) played Mini, the central child character, in Tapan Sinha’s 1957 “Kabuliwala”.

She speaks of how she was given very short sentences to speak in her first Hindi movie by Shakthi Samanta etc (saw all this on the Zee TV show ‘Jeena Isi ka Naam Hai’).

For the occasion today let us have a song from the 1971 released, K B Tilak directed “Chhoti Bahu” in which she stars with her co-star of several box-office hits – Rajesh Khanna. She paired with him in seven successful movies beginning with “Aradhana” in 1969 and following it up with Amar Prem, Chhoti Bahu, Safar, Daag, Raja Rani, Aavishkaar and Maalik. She had a good pairing with Dharmendra too beginning with Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anupama and Devar, Mere Humdam Mere Dost, Satyakam, Chupke Chupke, EK Mahal Ho Sapno ka and the last time we saw the pair together was in Sunny. She also had some good films with Shashi Kapoor- Waqt, Aamne Saamne, New Delhi Times, Suhana Safar etc.

Today’s song reminds me of another song with a similar theme – “Chanda hai tum mera suraj hai tu”. And also “Bada natkhat hai re Krishna Kanhaiya”, she did emote well in these song situations, we could see a lot of love for kids in those expressive eyes
“Chhoti Bahu” had six songs and debuted on the blog with he re Kanhaiyya kisko kahega tu maiyya in Kishore Kumar’s voice. The song is more or less the gist of the movie where we have Nirupa Roy as the equivalent of Devaki and Sharmila as the Yashoda of the young baby Sarika who is called either Kishan or Kanhaiya (have seen the movie ages back, should see again). This was followed by the Mohd Rafi sung ye raat hai pyaasi pyaasi. The third song posted was dulhaniya bata de ree . Today we have the fourth wherein a happy, young girl is seen playing “mother” to her favourite doll. As the movie progresses, we get to know that she cannot beget children of her own so her ‘jethani’ gives her the responsibility of being the mother to baby Sarika.
Wishing our Sharmila ‘dimpled’ Tagore a Happy Birthday.

Blog Day : 4140 Post No. : 15302

Today (18 november 2019) is thr 118th birth anniversary of V Shantaram (18 november 1901- 30 october 1990).

When one looks at the career of V Shantaram, one can only be amazed. He made his debut as an actor in 1921 in a silent movie “Surekha Haran”(1921). His last movie was as a director in “Jhanjhaar”(1987).

After acting in a few silent moves, he turned director with “Netaji Palkar.”

He acted, produced and directed many movies, including some movies that are considered landmark movies in the annals of Indian cinema.

“Ayodhyache Raja”(1932), directed by him under “Prabhat Films” was the first Marathi talkie. It was also made in Hindi as “Ayodhya Ka Raja”(1932). “Maaya Machhindra”(1932) also came in the same year. “Amar Jyoti”(1936), “Aadmi”(1939) and “Padosi”(1941) were some well known Prabhat talkies films directed by him.

He then left Prabhat and formed Rajkamal Kala Mandir. More than twenty movies were produced by Rajkamal. “Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani”(1946), “Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje”(1955), “Do Aankhen Baarah Haath”(1957), “Navrang”(1959), “Stree”(1961), “Sehra”(1963), “Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne”(1964) etc were some of his memorable movies under this banner.

On the occasion of his birth anniversary, here is a song from “Jal Bin Machhli Nrity Bin Bijli”(1971). This movie was produced and directed by V Shantaram. The movie had Abhijeet(Introducing),Sandhya, Dina Gandhi aka Dina Pathak, Raja Paranjape, Vatsala Deshmukh, Iftekhar, Birbal, Vasant Parekh, Ravindra, Paresh Nanda, Nanda, Basant and new artists Minal, Praveen Kumar, child star Sushant Ray.

The song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is preceded by several minutes of dance. And what a dance performance ! A few days ago, I had discussed a “snake” dance which I thought was one of a kind. Here is another one of a kind dance. It is picturised as a “snake-peacock-Eagle” dance. The dance director Praveen Kumar has done a great job choreographing this dance. Incidentally, the term choreography was not known those days.

The dance is picturised on Sandhya and Minal. Abhijeet and Raja Paranjpe are also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

The song (including the dance) is nearly ten minutes long. And every second of this long song is worth watching.

Hullo to Atuldom

Today we wish the smart handsome light-eyed actor, producer, director, screen writer and editor Rakesh Roshan on his 70th birthday with lots of health and happiness- discovered as I sat to write this that he is also a cancer conqueror. Very heart-warming to learn that.

We all know that he started at a rather young age in the film industry as an assistant to Mohan Kumar during the making of “Anjaana” due to the untimely death of his father – Roshanlal Nagrath; the music director of “Baawre Nain” fame “Roshan”. (I don’t intend to list Roshan’s albums here).

Rakesh Roshan had “Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani” as his first release in 1970. It was a supporting role where the most popular song of the movie “sama hai suhaana suhaana” was lip synced by Jalal Agha and Rakesh Roshan and Bharathi were only part of the group that shakes a leg to the song. This movie was followed by movies like “Seema”; “Ankhon Ankhon Mein”; “Paraya Dhan”; “Man Mandir” and a host of others where mostly he was either a supporting actor. There were movies where he was the lead but the stories were mostly heroine-centric as in “Khoobsurat”; “Kaamchor”; “Bahu Ki Awaz”; “Bahurani” etc. He has had successful movies with Rishi Kapoor beginning with “Khel Khel Mein” “Jhootha Kahin Ka”; “Aap Ke Deewane” and their friendship is such that Rishi did a guest appearance in Rakesh’s directorial debut “Khudgarz”. Similarly, his friendship with Sujit Kumar, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra and the pranks that they play on each other are some of the anecdotes that each of these actors don’t tire relating. Of course, he had his share of solo hero movies where the heroines were equally important – for example “Ek Kunwari Ek Kunwara” with Leena Chandavarkar, “Nafrat” with Yogita Bali; “Humari Bahu Alka” with Bindiya Goswami; “Shubh Kaamna” with Rati Agnihotri etc.

His pairing with Rekha gave us movies like “Khoobsurat” which was followed by “Neeyat”; “Daasi”; “Jeevan Dhara”; and when he turned director Rekha got the best movie of her life (my personal feeling) “Khoon Bhari Maang” which kind of resurrected Rekha’s career. She went on to even accept the role of Hrithik’s mother in Rakesh’s directorial “Koi Mil Gaya” and also played Hrithik’s grandmother in its sequel “Krrish”. It is quite well known that Rakesh Roshan likes to name all his films with titles that begin with K. He has tasted success with all the movies he has produced beginning with “Khudgarz” in 1987.

Today we have a song from one of his initial movie “Seema” (1971) which was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar and directed by Surendra Mohan and Bharathi (of South Indian movies) was his co-star. The movie also had Kabir Bedi and Simi Garewal in the cast. The most famous song of this movie “Jab bhi yeh dil udaas hota hai” is already on the blog along with two other songs.

Here is the fourth song of the movie with Rakesh Roshan trying to woo Bharathi in a manner, which in the current times and even earlier (I suppose) would amount to eve teasing. In most of the songs of this type we see the lady smiling and falling in love with ‘the tormentor’ but not in this song. The song also shows that Rakesh or Duggu, as he is addressed by his friends, was a decent dancer and didn’t indulge in stomping of the feet, or exhibiting two left feet etc. As I was seeing the video to note the lyrics there is a point in the song where he mimics a lady and I recollected that portion of “Aap Ke Deewane” where he comes dressed as a lady teacher for Tina Munim.

“Seema” had music by Shankar Jaikishan and the movie opens with a tribute to Jaikishanji. Today’s song is written by Verma Malik and it is sung by Kishore Kumar.

Once again Happy Birthday to Rakesh Roshan.
