Blog Day :

I first met him on screen in 1971. The film was ‘Mere Apne’, a story of a destitute old lady fallen on to hard times, intersecting with gang wars between young street smarts. I had heard his name before. In 1968, when Sunil Dutt launched his younger brother Som Dutt via his home production ‘Man Ka Meet’, one also read in the news that another new face was being introduced – name Vinod Khanna.

Remembering Vinod Khanna on his birth anniversary today. He would have been celebrating his 76th year on this planet. He passed away five years ago, on 27th April, after losing a battle with the dreaded cancer.

As the decade of 1960s came to a close, the latter half introduced a few handsome young men to the the Hindi screen, that would go on to make big name for themselves over next few decades – Rishi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Amitabh Bachchan – and yes, Vinod Khanna.

I was verily impressed by his screen presence in ‘Mere Apne’. An attractive physique, a stoic and solemn demeanor that is not easily ruffled, a determined and earnest quietness, an un-agitated dialogue delivery that conveys a commanding confidence. His screen presence felt good and comfortable.

As the decade would progress, there would be more impressive performances that added to his stature as an accomplished actor in Hindi cinema. Starting with the villain’s role in ‘Man Ka Meet’, he went on to doing side roles or shared leads in films like ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, ‘Mastaana’, ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ and ‘Sachcha Jhootha’ (all 1970) and ‘Reshma Aur Shera’ (1971), he moved into the lead role with the film ‘Hum, Tum Aur Who’ (1971) opposite Bharati. That year also witnessed two more of his great perfromances – ‘Mere Apne’ by Gulzar and ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ by Raj Khosla. In the former he share the lead with Shatrughan Sinha, and in the latter with an established Dharmendra. And he stood his ground well in both these outings.

In 1972, we see him as the best friend of the hero in Gulzar’s ‘Parichay’. All this while, his presence in films is growing rapidly. In 1973 he plays the role of an army officer inadvertently caught in an illicit love triangle in ‘Achanak’, a film by Gulzar and KA Abbas. This role earned him a lot of critical acclaim.

In 1974, another very impressive performance in ‘Imtihan’ and also in ‘Haath Ki Safai’. For the latter performance, he got the Filmfare’s Best Supporting Actor award for the year. From 1976 I remember his roles in ‘Shaque’ and ‘Hera Pheri’. Moving on to bigger and better in 1977, we see him in ‘Parvarish’, the outstanding cops and robbers story ‘Inkaar’ and the blockbuster hit ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.

1978 turned out to be yet another big year for him with films like ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’ and ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’. 1979 saw him play the role of Rana ji in Gulzar’s ‘Meera’. And in 1980 he made it big with films like ‘Qurbani’ and ‘The Burning Train’. From 1981 I remember him in ‘Kudrat’, a film by Chetan Anand.

Although Vinod Khanna went on to a brilliant career, the above listed films are the ones that are in my mind as mine, my selection – I have watched them on the big screen.

In 1982, Vinod took a break in his career, to be with Acharya Rajneesh, his spiritual Guru. That break ended in 1986, as he returned to India, after Acharya Rajneesh was made to leave the US by the authorities. Coming back, Vinod rejoined the industry and continued with his career. We see him active in the industry all the way up to 2015. Later, the medical issues overtook his life and he passed away in 2017. His last role was in a film released posthumously in 2020 – ‘Guns Of Banaras’.

The song I present today is from the 1974 film ‘The Cheat’ aka ‘Farebi’. The film is from Jaimini Dewan Productions. (Readers will recall that Jaimini Dewan was the elder brother of actor Karan Dewan). It is directed by Sudesh Issar. The cast of the film is listed as Vinod Khanna, Maushumi Chatterjee, Nirupa Rai, Anwar Hussain, Fariyal, Ranjeet, Randhir, Uma Dutt, Jankidas, Dubey, Naidu, Nishan Singh, Haroon Khan, Madhu Chauhan, Shah Agha, Soni, Ratan Gaurang, Jawahar Chopra, Sunil Sharma, Sat Prakash, and Bindu.

The film has six songs, all have been penned by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The singing voice is that of Kishore Kumar. With this song, the film ‘The Cheat’ makes its debut on our blog.

The lyrics of this song have been provided by dear Prakash ji.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 99
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this day i.e., on 25th September ’2012 the following songs were posted on the blog.

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6712 Aayi gori Raadhika Brij mein bal khaati Gopinath(1948) 4 songs out of 9 posted

6719 Mere yaar ko mere Allah de ek chaand sa pyaara lalla Dacait(1987) One song out of 5 posted

We can from the above table that eight songs eight movies were represented on the blog on that day on 25.09.2012.

Out of these eight movies, so far, only four movies have been Yippeeee’ed on the blog. So, we have four movies available for today where we can present a song on the blog.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Khote Sikkey-1974’. One song from this movie was posted on the blog on this day ten years back. I think this song was my third lyrics contribution appearing on the blog. My first lyrics contribution was posted on the blog on 13.09.2012.

I was aware of this movie and its song jeewan mein tu darna nahin since my childhood days and when I become associated with this blog I shared this song then.

Few months back, I listened to the other songs from this movie. This movie ‘Khote Sikkey’ has only three songs. When I listened to the remaining two songs, I liked one of them very much and noted it down for my write-up. I was supposed to present it on a special occasion, but I got stuck up with my write-up, and so much so that it took me more than a month to come back to writing and send a post to Atul ji.
Well, I am not presenting that song today, and will present it later the blog with the same ‘thoughts’ I wish to present earlier. 😊

“Khote Sikkey-1974” was directed by Narendra Bedi for ‘Mewar Films, Bombay’.

It had Feroz Khan, Narendra Nath, Danny Dengzongpa, Ranjeet, Sudhir, Paintal, Kunwar Ajit, Ajit, Rehana Sultan, Madhuchhanda, Alka, Rajpal, V. Gopal, Johny Whisky, Bhushan Tiwari, Leela Mishra, Mamaji, Jimmy Sikandar, Rekha Chauhan, Raj Katyal, I. A. Pasha, Mansharam, S. Baghel, Trilok Sharma, Hamid, Harish, Kripa Shankar, Satyanarayan, Tilakraj, Khairati, Chandu, Uma Khosla, Manohar, Bhanumati, Kishan Mehta, Master Shaka, and others.

Satyen Kappu, Kamal Kapoor and Master Alankar made friendly appearances in this movie.

This movie had three songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

As mentioned above only one song from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier.

SNo Song-Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jeevan mein tu darna nahin Kishore Kumar, chorus 25.09.2012

Today’s song – the second song from this movie – is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

On screen the today’s song is lip-synced by Rehana and one other actress (whom I am unable to identify) and we can see Sudhir, Ranjeet, Danny, Paintal, Narendra Nath, and others enjoying this ‘mujra’ song, and we can see Feroz Khan (the Client Eastwood in this movie 😊 ) watching them or rather ‘keeping an eye on them all’ from behind the ‘curtains’…

Today 25th September 2022 is also the eighty-third birth anniversary of Feroz Khan (25 September 1939 – 27 April 2009) an actor, producer, and director and one among our many favourites of the seventies …

We pay our tributes to Feroz Khan and thank him for all the lovely memories of his movies he has left for us. Though he has no words or lyrics to perform in the today’s song he is still present there in this song and readers can still watch him in this song and remember this ‘one of his kind of actor’ of Hindi Cinema today.

Let us now enjoy today’s song ..

Blog Day :

5129 Post No. : 17082

Hullo Atuldom

I have always felt that one thought, a stray statement or headline triggers a range of connected and unconnected thoughts and memories.

Today’s post arises from the song “Har Ek Saans Hai Mehmaan Kuchh Pehar Ke Liye” of Avinashji. In this post he has listed songs sung by Bhupinder Singh – the singer who left this mortal world recently. I was listening to the songs listed therein – on YouTube. One song led to another and I ended up listening to Zindagi Cigarette Ka Dhuaan -a song written by Kaifi Azmi and music was by Jaidev.

Jaidev was born Jai Dev Verma on 3rd August 1918 in Nairobi where his father was an official in the railways. He was brought up in Ludhiana and has said that his mother was responsible for instilling the love of music in him as she used to recite the Ramayana soulfully and musically. Looking up Jaidev ji and his life-journey I found that he had also acted in 4-5 mythological/swashbuckling films but soon realized that acting was not his forte. He was the disciple of the sarod maestro Ali Akbar Khan and accompanied him to Bombay and assisted him in composing music for a couple of Chetan Anand films. These films were not successful and Ali Akbar Khan moved on but Jaidev stayed back. He then assisted SD Burman in music composing for such landmark films as ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘House No. 44’, ‘Munimji’, ‘Lajwanti’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ ‘Sujata’, ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ etc. He got his first independent break in Chetan Anand’s ‘Joru Ka Bhai’ (1955). It was the 1961 release ‘Hum Dono’ that brought Jaidev ji to the notice of Hindi film music lovers. This was followed by the songs of ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (Source:- https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/manufocus/outstanding-music-director-jaidev-a-mine-of-talent-that-remained-underexploited-10855/)

Following the unforgettable songs of ‘Hum Dono’ and ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ were songs of ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, ‘Do Boond Paani’, Alaap’, ‘Gharonda’, ‘Dooriyan’, ‘Gaman’ etc and a few more. As the Times of India article headline says he was an “Outstanding Music Director: A Mine of Talent that Remained Underexploited”- his filmography shows only 41 films; many of his compositions are lost in unreleased, unfinished albums. He was said to be Lata Mangeshkar’s favorite composer along with Salil Choudhary and Madan Mohan and Asha Bhonsle was his preferred singer when he composed songs out of the literary works of Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Jaishankar Prasad, Mahadevi Verma etc. His ghazals helped the careers of Peenaz Masani, Hariharan, Chandan Das etc. in the initial stages. Simple, sincere, unassuming and gentle Jaidev ji was someone who didn’t compromise on quality of music. He was an excellent music director who has given some of the best melodies in Indian Cinema.

Thinking of Jaidev ji today on his birth anniversary with this song from ‘Faaslaa’ (1974) whose first song Zindagi Cigarette Ka Dhuaan was posted in 2011. Today’s song is also in Bhupinder’s voice and written by Kaifi Azmi. On screen we have Shabana Azmi and Raman Khanna.


Song-Dil ne tadap tadap ke tadapna sikha diya (Faaslaa)(1974) Singer-Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm
dil ne tadap tadap ke tadapna sikha diya
inaam ab miley ke sazaa
sar jhuka diya
dil ne tadap tadap ke tadapna sikha diya
inaam ab miley ke sazaa
sar jhuka diya

deewaana karke chhod de jo
ik zamaane ko o o
deewana karke chhod de jo
ik zamaane ko
mujhko usi nigaah ne
insaan bana diya aa
mujhko usi nigaah ne
insaan bana diya
inaam ab miley ke sazaa
sar jhuka diya

bas itna jaanta hoon
mujhe tumse pyaar hai ae
aur pyaar mein naa jeet kisi ki na haar hai
iske siwaa jo yaad thha
sab kuchh bhula diya
iske siva jo yaad tha
sab kuchh bhula diya
inaam ab miley ke sazaa
sar jhuka diya
deewana karke chhod de jo
ik zamaane ko
mujhko usi nigaah ne
insaan bana diya aa
hmm hmm hmm

दिल ने तड़प तड़प के तड़पना सिखा दिया

बस इतना जानता हूँ
मुहे तुमसे प्यार है
और प्यार में ना जीत किसी की ना हार है
इसके सिवा जो याद था
सब कुछ भुला दिया
इसके सिवा जो याद था
सब कुछ भुला दिया
इनाम अब मिले के सज़ा

दीवाना कर के छोड़ दे जो

Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 9 # Bhupinder Singh #

———————————————–———————————–——————

[Author’s Note : It is very unfortunate that this article which was in making with me since a very long time is being posted at a time when the ‘legendary voice’ discussed in this article has left us for it’s heavenly abode. . .
I would like to present it as it is where I stopped last and was supposed to add about the biographical information to finish this article. However, I will try to come back in future to present another article having the biographical information of this singer.]

Welcome all to this article where I will be taking you all down memory lane with the voice of Bhupinder Singh.

I am sure this name will immediately fill your minds with those many memorable songs and nostalgia associated with it. We all know this song “Naam Gum Jaayega. . . Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” and we also know the two voices in this song. And there have been albums/programs using the tag-line “aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” or “meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” from this song, for various compilations. And very naturally mostly they were identified or are related with the legendary female voice in this song which is of the ‘legend’ Lata Mangeshkar ji.

However, for me or maybe I can say that for few or many like me, we also remember this song mainly for the male voice in this song which is Bhupinder Singh ji. . . And again, for people like me (I am sure there must be many) this ‘aawaaz hi pehchaan hai’ is the ‘pehchaan’ of the ‘aawaaz’ and the name Bhupinder Singh.

I don’t know where it did start that I fall in love with this ‘gunguni’ aawaaz (as said by Khayyam Saab) which for me is ‘a voice which has pain and compassion’ and yes, it did have a ‘soothing effect’ too. If I try to recollect it now, I remember that I must have watched this movie ‘Kinaara’ (1977) around 1979-80 in our colony club during the weekly screening of movies there.

Among other songs from this movie this song “Naam Gum Jaayega” was the song easily touching the hearts, and not only touching but constantly growing on one’s mind, and it was also a popular song in those days (if I am correct).

But, I think, before that it was “Dil Dhoondhta Hai Phir Wahi Fursat Ke Raat Din (happy version) which I always think I must have listened frequently on radio and especially during the summer vacations when we used to sleep in the courtyard during every summer season in those years… and from this song itself these lines ya garmiyon ki raat jo purwaayiyaan chalen have been connected to my mind with garmi ki chhuttiyaan aur aangan mein letna. . .

And may be after that it was “Do Deewaane Shahar Mein, which is purely nostalgic for me and I like this song very much. This song has been a continued favorite of mine over all these years and whenever I have listened to it, its ‘magic’ on me has been the same effect each and every time – whatever we consider – be it the lyrics, the composition or its singing by Bhupinder Singh and Runa Laila. (For this one song specially and very few other songs, (I think she has very few in HFM), Runa Laila’s voice is one of the voices that I had in my memory, and which also is a part of this series).

During those years may be, I had listened “Sainyya Bina Ghar Soona“, “Ye Paudhe Ye Patte … Man Kahe Main Jhoomoon“, “Rangmahal Ke Dus Darwaaze… Sainyya Nikas Gaye” which got permanently embedded in my memories connected with childhood days. And these songs thereafter became part of my ‘nostalgia’ of those years.

When I started collecting cassettes, I was always looking for these songs for my collection and except the song from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ the other two were very difficult to find and I got them much later when we landed in ‘net-yug’.

I remember I watched ‘Maasoom’ after I passed out my matriculation exams in 1983 and among other songs from this movie I did also like the song “Huzoor Is Kadar Bhi Na Itraa Ke Chaliye“.

Around the same time as I was growing my fascination for Rajesh Khanna movies, and I had become a Rajesh Khanna fan I came to know about this lovely song from ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) “Rut Jawaan Jawaan“.

Then In 1985-1986 I had bought the movie album by T-series for my cassette collection, and I became aware of this song “Yaaro Neelaam Karo Susti” because of the album of the movie ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970).

In mid-eighties, there was this album from HMV, which was a compilation of songs of Bhupinder Singh from films and titled as ‘Karoge Yaad To’ (if I am not wrong), however this cassette has been misplaced somewhere from my collection. Through this album I got introduced to many of his gems which I had not listened earlier, viz.

Mere ghar aana aana zindagi

Thodisi zameen thodaa aasmaan

Koi jab se sharik e caravan hai’

Karoge yaad to

Gulaab jism ka yoonhi nahin khilaa hoga

Ek hi khwaab kai baar dekha hai maine

I still remember that this song “Kisi Nazar Ko Tera Intezaar Aaj Bhi Hai” from the 1985 movie ‘Aitbaar’ had become very popular then and heard frequently on radio and cassette players. I remember I bought the above album from Nehru Place market in New Delhi in one of my official visits there.

But I was always well aware of the song “Hoke Majboor Mujhe” from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), since my childhood days, may be because of my parents and their love for music. This song was played on radio frequently. When I grow up, I got to listened to it frequently on music programs on radio especially in the program of ‘All India Radio’s Urdu Service’. I had bought the cassette of ‘Haqeeqat’ during my stay at Kota from 1988-89 onwards.

When I get associated with this blog, I had shared lyrics of some of the above-mentioned songs and later I had also shared the following songs with articles.

Zindagi phoolon ki nahin, phoolon ki tarah mehki rahe ae’

Koyi jab se shareeq e kaarvaan hain’

Zehar detaa hai mujhe koyi dawaa detaa hain’

Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin’

Nayi umr ke naye sitaaron’

Raat banoon main aur chaand bano tum’

Sooliyon pe chadhke choome aaftaab ko’

Ahl e dil yoon bhi nibhaa lete hain’

Ye zindagi hai chaar pal’

 Listening to the songs sung by Bhupinder Singh has always given me immense pleasure and calmed my mind during various situations in life. It is like applying the ‘spiritual balm’ on one’s wounds. Also, I think that his voice is like a ‘equilibrium’ – always balanced. In happy situations neither you go jumping with his songs and similarly in sad songs you didn’t start crying. It balances the ‘mood’ whatever you are in, and it motivates to move forward from that point of time. It inspires.

Khayyam Saab had mentioned Bhupinder Singh’s voice as ‘a meethhi gunguni awaaz’ and Gulzar Saab said this unki aawaaz ka agar taabiz ban sakta to main zaroor banaa ke pehan leta’.

What to say … such a magical voice has left us now forever.

And readers will note that I have only mentioned about his voice in above write up. We should not forget that he was also an ‘ace instrumentalist’. Naushad Saab had said about Bhupinder Singh that nobody could come to closer to him in performing on guitar.

Bhupinder Singh has been instrumental in many unforgettable hits of HFM where he has played guitar in the songs. There are over three hundred songs where he has performed Guitar. I am not going to list the songs where he played the guitar. Not only Guitar but he also played ‘wood rubaab’. (I am not sure if he played rubaab in film compositions too).

Then there is altogether separate identity of Bhupinder Singh which is as a ‘Ghazal Singer’. That will also require another separate post and I am not going to discuss this in today’s post.

In the recent months I have regularly listened to his many songs and many non-film songs too since I want to finish this write-up. I came across many songs which I wish to bring here on the blog in the future.

I would also like to mention one of his songs which is very close to my heart and which is from the album ‘Karadi Katha – Bandar Bindaas Bandar’, the song is “Ae Dost Bahadur Dost Mere”.

Then here is a link of the song which also I came across in recent past — “Moko Kahaan Dhoondhhe Re Bande

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ (1974) which is written by Yogesh. This song is sung by Bhupinder Singh and is also composed by him. Yes, I think this was the first and last time when he composed a music for a Hindi Film.

So, today on the blog, we introduce music director Bhupinder Singh Soni (or Bhupendra Soni as mentioned in HFGK).

‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for Cine Guild, Bombay. It had Kabir Bedi, Prema Narayan, Gulshan Arora, Poornima, Sudhir, Shah Agha, Mukesh Bhatt, Soni, Randhir Raj, Viju Khote, Kirti Kumar, Sundar, Uma Dutt, Mac Mohan, and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board (after many ‘cuts’ as mentioned by Bhupinder Singh himself in his ‘exclusive interview’ (link given below)) on 13.08.1974 with an ‘A’ certificate (or restricted viewing certificate).

This movie has four songs written by Yogesh and composed to music by Bhupinder Singh. This movie is making its debut on the blog today.

 

Our tributes to our beloved Bhupinder Singh!!!

unki aawaaz hi pehchaan hai … aur sadiyon tak yah pehchaan rahegi …

yah aawaaz is kaainaat mein goonjti rahegi, gungunaati rahegi, gaati rahegi …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahen nahin ham dahr ke liye. . .

zindagi phoolon ki nahin
phoolon ki tarah
mehki rahe ae. . .

Song – Har Ek Saans Hai Mehmaan Kuchh Pehar Ke Liye (Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain) (1974) Singers – Bhupendra, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhupendra

Lyrics 

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans. . .

qafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena aa
kafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena
haseen ab ye nazaarein hain
bas nazar ke liye
har ek saans …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahe nahin ham dahr ke liye

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 41
————————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (5 april 2012) was a relatively “lean” day for the blog. “Only” five songs from five different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5735 Kyaa dekha ab nainon waali Dharmputra(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
5736 Man morey gaa jhoom ke Mangu (1954) 6 songs covered in the blog out of 7
5737 Naiyya meri chalti jaaye My Friend(1974) One song covered out of 4
5738 Rehne do chanda badli mein Chowkidaar(1974) Movie YIPPEED by now
5739 Nateeja hamaari muhabbat ka kyaa hai Puraskaar(1970) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that three movies out of five whose songs figured in the blog ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog.

That leaves us with only two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (5 April 2022). But songs of only one of these movies are available and so practically only one movie is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

That movie is “My Friend”(1974).

“My Friend”(1974) was produced by Poonam Bhai Shah and Naushad and directed by M Rehman for Poonam Pictures Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Rajeev(New find), Prema Narayan, Utpal Dutt, Purnima, Umraani(new find), Jagdeep, Asit Sen, Polson, Tuntun, Badri Prasad, Mona Sayeed, Hakeem, Samson, Rirkoo, Ratna, Moolchand etc in it.

“My Friend”(1974) had four songs in it. The movie made its debut ten years ago and that song covered ten years ago is the only song from this movie in the blog so far.

Today, exactly ten years later, here is the second song from “My Friend”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar with some male chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, it appears to be a cabarat dance song. Though Lata Mangeshkar sang very few cabarat songs, she did sing a few of them, like for instance in “Izzat”(1968) “Inteqam”(1969) for Helen.

Here there is no Helen in the cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 32
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 March 2012) saw four songs from four different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5656 Mit nahin sakta kabhi likha huaa taqdeer ka Sansaar (1951) 6 songs covered so far out of 14
5657 Nasheeli hawaa hai samaa hai suhaana Commercial Pilot Officer(1963) 3 songs covered so far out of 6
5658 Wo zindagi to thhi ab tak teri panaahon mein Neelkamal(1968) Movie YIPPEED by now
5659 Pukaarti hai muhabbat kareeb aa jaao Daastaan e Laila Majnu(1974) One song covered so far out of 11

One movie out of four, whose songs were covered on 19 march 2012 has since been YIPPEED. The other three movies are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) is one of the eligible movies.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) was produced and directed by R L Desai for Chandra Art, Bombay. The movie had Anaamika, Kanwaljit,Dheeraj Kumar(special appearance), Jayshree.T., Satyajeet, K.N.singh, B.M.Vyas, S.N.Tripathi, Dulari, Mohan Sherry etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. One song has been covered so far and that was ten years ago.

So after a gap of exactly ten years, here is the second song from “Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Iqbal Qureshi is the music director.

The song is picturised on Jayshree T, with Anamika and Dhiraj Kumar also visible as royals. Laila Majnu tale is a medieval tale, that is why Jayshree T dance should not be called a cabarat dance, but that dance and also the music sounds and looks every inch a cabarat dance song to me. 🙂 Hindi movies are in any case not known for attentions to details and accuracy of facts.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

“Five Rifles” (1974) was produced and directed by I.S. Johar. I think it was also written by I.S.Johar. Anyone who used to see the movies in the 70s will recall that the male actors – won’t call them protagonist or heroes- were look-alikes of Shashi Kapoor and Rajesh Khanna; credited in the movie’s titles as Shahi Kapoor and Rakesh Khanna. The others in the cast were Ambika Johar (in a double role), Veena, D.K. Sapru, Murad, Kamal Kapoor (in one of his many videshi, police commissioner acts), Anil Johar, Satyadeep etc. and I.S. Johar, of course. The songs of the movie were written by Rajinder Krishan and Indeevar. The movie had five songs and the blog has the following two of them:-

Song Date of post
Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi 30 june 2009
Tera husn allah allah tera roop raam raam 6 June 2018

Avinashji has written a lot of details, about the film, in this post

I don’t recall if I had seen this movie at the time of its release (maybe I had) but saw the movie recently and felt that it spoke about too many things. I.S. Johar had ‘Nashabandi’ (prohibition on sale of liquor), ‘Nasbandi’ (family planning movement of the 70s), freedom-struggle, corrupt ‘Senapati’ of some unnamed kingdom who helps the foreign ruler dethrone the Maharaja etc. all in the story of this movie. Additionally, there was an extended climax which went from the plains to the snow-capped hills in North India with snowmobiles etc. Plus all the gorillas/apes that kept popping here-there-everywhere through the movie. And weird cars which split from the middle, suddenly become flying cars, and amphibians. Just too many things in one movie for the audience to digest; in addition to the two look-alikes and a non-acting heroine. God, I sat through it to see what the song-and-dance was all about. Oh I forgot, a song from “Johar Mehmood in Goa” (1965) was used in the scene where the Apes helping the freedom-fighters are being escorted to Jail.

Today we are having a song where we see Inder Sen Johar (read somewhere that he was Inderjeet Singh Johar, whichever is correct) disguised as a dancer out to hoodwink the ‘Daaroga’ and breaking into a mujra singing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. There is another girl dancing in a black dress outwitting the hawaldars who have accompanied the Daaroga.

I.S. Johar, born on 16th february 1920, was an M.A. in Economics & Politics and before completing LLB. He was born in modern day Pakistan, got stuck in Patiala at the time of partition and could never return. He made his debut in Bollywood in 1949 and also appeared in a few international projects. He was seen in comic roles with tongue-in-cheek dialogues and did serious roles too with subtle ironic or frankly sarcastic jibes at Indian customs, mores, superstitions and institutions. It is 38 years since his passing and 10th March is his anniversary.

Om Prakash Chibber- better known as Om Prakash- was an actor who was seen mainly in character roles, in movies of the late 1950s till the very end of his career i.e. till 1994, “Bhai No 1” that released in 2000 came two years after his passing. He was only 78 at the time of his death.

But telling Om Prakash was a character actor is wrong, just because I saw him first as Sharmila Tagore’s ‘jijaji’ in the hilarious, Hrishikesh Mukherjee directed “Chupke Chupke” in 1975 (I am sure this is a movie I first watched on Doordarshan). He was adorable in this song. Similarly I saw him as Ramlal – father to Mehmood, Kalpana and Rajasree- in “Pyar Kiye Jaa” (again on DD). He was amazing through that film and this scene from “Pyar kiye jaa” (1966) was a standout. There are hundreds of such scenes that I can list out here as an example of what an outstanding actor this artiste was.

He began his career as a radio broadcaster in All India Radio in 1937. I have seen a biographical video somewhere on YouTube which talks of his journey from radio to films and how Dalsukh Pancholi gave him his first break in films in the 1944 release “Daasi” after which he was a regular in Hindi films. Here I should apologize for my ignorance, as to whether Om Prakashji has ever played a hero in any of his films. I do know that his was the central character in many movies where a Sanjay Khan or a Navin Nischol (just to give 2 examples) were the romantic lead as in “Das Lakh” or “Buddha Mil Gaya” . Can anyone forget the characters he played in “Namak Halal”, “Sharaabi”, “Zanjeer”, “Loafer”, “Howrah Bridge”, ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne”, “Azaad”, and and and hundreds of others.

He may have had songs filmed on him in the initial years of his career but the following songs have stayed in my mind

Song Movie (Year) Date of post in the blog
Iint ki dukki paan ka ikka Howrah Bridge (1958) 5 February 2009
Oy buddho lambo lambo Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 3 march 2009
Aayo kahaan se ghanshyam Buddha Mil Gaya (1971) 12 may 2009
Teri patli kamar teri baali umar Dus Laakh (1966) 31 October 2012
Ajab teri kaareegari re kartaar Dus Laakh (1966) 7 September 2013
Suno re saadho ye sansaaram ultam paltam ho gaya Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi (1970) 21 February 2018

Meri patni mujhe sataati hai is a song that I discovered today.

He has had Manna Dey, Mohd. Rafi, Mahendra Kapoor etc giving playback for him. Today we see him singing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice, a song written by Aziz Kashmiri and tuned by Shankar Jaikishan.

“International Crook” (1974) was a movie produced and directed by Pachhi who also played the role of Jamal Pasha in that movie. I have read in some post, in our blog, that Pachhi was Om Prakash’s brother, and when (by chance) I saw the movie recently I was 100% sure (for sometime at least) that Omji was playing a double role. Then it occurred to me that this person had a huge paunch and hence cannot be Om Prakashji.

“International Crook” had six songs of which the blog has this song which was Avinashji’s contribution on the occasion of Dharmendra’s 85th birthday. Today’s song is to recall Om Prakashji, it is 24 years since he left this mortal world.


Song-Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna (International Crook)(1974) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Aziz Kashmiri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

Pehra do hoshiyaari se bhai jaagte rehna

Hullo Atuldom

“Trimoorti” (1974) was produced and directed by Rajendra Bhatia. It had a cast of Parveen Babi, Kanchan Mattoo, Arpana Choudhary, Sanjay Khan, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani, Achala Sachdev, A.K. Hangal, Arvind Trivedi, Gulshan Bawra, Krishnakant, and I.S.Johar, Parveen Paul, Keshto Mukherjee, Sarita Joshi etc. Its music director was Rahul Dev Burman and Gulshan Bawra was the lyricist.

The blog has this song which was posted in 2017 on Parveen Babi’s anniversary.
I was reminded of this movie when I saw one of its song on some channel. The song had Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan uniformly dressed. That made me wonder “what is happening!!!” as actors normally like to standout or look unique etc. I also saw a few other songs and in most of these the heroes are uniformly dressed. I haven’t seen the movie but I presume there must be an element of comedy in it if the song with this post is an indication. It has Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan pampering their mother in the voices of Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar and Bhupinder.

4th January is the remembrance date of Panchamda, a.k.a. Rahul Dev Burman. 3rd January was the 81st birthday of Sanjay Khan and 1st january was the 82nd birthday of Govardhan Asrani known popularly as Asrani. This post wishes Sanjay Khan and Asrani (belated) wishes health and happiness on their birthdays and thank RDB for giving us years of happiness with his music.

Lyrics

achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa
o maa o maa
achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa
o maa o maa
duniya bhar ki khushiyaan humko dene waali
o maa o maa

achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
o maa o maa
o maa o maa

toone jaag jaag ke raaton mein
humen meethhi neend sulaaya hai
teri mamta ke saaye ne humen
sardi garmi se bachaaya hai

har haal mein ye ghar swarg lage
ye to maa teri maaya hai

o maa o maa
o maa o maa
achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
o maa o maa

maara jo kabhi galti pe humen
humse dukh zyaada tujhko hua

hum aansu baha ke chhup ho gaye
lekin maa tera man roya

aisi mamta ki moorat ki
jeevan bhar karte rahe pooja
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali ma
duniya bhar ki khushiyaan humko dene waali maa
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
o maa o maa
