Mukesh and his Co-Singers –9
———————————————-

Let me begin this post with a disclaimer to make it more interesting.

If you are reading this post, it means the editors have gratefully accepted my take on the subject and for the inclusion of this NFS in the above quoted series.

The series Mukesh and his co-singers had begun with Mukesh’s association with Rafi saab. Thereafter, I have covered a total of 4 each male and female co-singers. Amongst male singers apart from Rafi saab, Talat Mehmood, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey have been covered.
A very important name missing amongst male singers was of course Mahendra Kapoor who not only has some good number of songs with Mukesh, but also had a close and friendly relationship with him. The obvious reason for the delay of this post was the fact that all of the known 12 songs in which they collaborated had already been covered on the blog.

So what do I have in store in this post? Well, when the words “rare” and “Mukesh” appear together anywhere, I take them quite seriously and one of the first thoughts that comes to my mind is if the same has been represented on the blog or if there is any scope for its immediate inclusion.
Thus, a couple of months back, when Zafar bhai of Delhi shared the NFS of the combo from his invaluable collection, I knew I had a chance of making this post.
Before we go into the details as to how this post came about, here is the table of songs with all details and the respective links on the blog. The duo has a dozen songs in which they sang together (triads, quartets and a quintet included) and which are quite familiar and remembered to this day. I shall run through them without much detailing.

S.No Name of the Song Movie (Year of release) Other co-singers if any Music Director Lyricist
1 Kadam kadam se dil de Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen (1959) Manna Dey, Meena Kapoor Anil Biswas Sahir Ludhianvi
2 Hai aag hamaare seene mein Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai (1960) Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar Shankar Jaikishan Shailendra
3 Ik baat kahoon wallaah Shrimaan Satyawad (1960) Suman Kalyanpur Dattaram Gulzar
4 Ham dilli ke daade hain Dilli Ka Dada (1962) N Datta Sahir Ludhianvi
5 Yeh haseen bambai Holiday In Bombay (1963) N Datta Anjaan
6 Har dil jo pyaar karegaa Sangam (1964) Lata Mangeshkar Shankar Jaikishan Shailendra
7 Mera rang de basanti chola Shaheed (1965) Rajendra Mehta Prem Dhawan Prem Dhawan
8 Jo chalaa gayaa usey bhool jaa Saathi (1968) Naushad Majrooh Sultanpuri
9 Zindagi hai kya Satyakaam (1969) Kishore Kumar Laxmikant Pyarelal Kaifi Azmi
10 Dhol bajaa dhol Vishwaas (1969) Usha Timothy, Hemlata Kalyanji Anandji Gulshan Baawra
11 Bheetar-bheetar khaaye chalo Sankalp (1974) Khayyam Kaifi Azmi
12 Kuncham kuncham thodaa thodaa Imaan Dharam (1977) Asha Bhonsle Laxmikant Pyarelal Anand Bakshi
13 Seva Core Ke Jawan NFS (1975) Chorus Khayyam Sahir Ludhianvi

Song No 1 in the table is probably only one of its kind, wherein all 4 singers name starts with the letter “M”.

2 again is a rare song with 5 great singers coming together for a quintet in a classic film.

3 is chirpy and hummable.

4 and 5 are under the composition of N Datta and incidentally both the songs are about our two metro cities.

6 is probably the most known song in the table.

7 is of course a patriotic song sung with much gusto.

8 is a known song, but what most people probably do not know is that the refrain “bhool jaa” is sung by Mahendra Kapoor where as Mukesh sings most of the song.
This was Mukesh’s association with Naushad after nearly two decades. Incidentally, it was my debut post of another series called Mukesh and his composers. That post was sans the table which became a regular feature in my posts later on. I am contemplating writing again on the combo as new information has come to my knowledge.

9 to 12 are quite familiar and readers can easily associate with them just by reading the name of the song.

13 is what this post is all about and so read on.

So, after having come across the posting by Zafar bhai, a quick search on the net and I came across
the following:-
==
The relevant text is as follows.
ASC CORPS SONG

In Oct 1975 the Corps song entitled ‘Seva Corps KeJawan’ was composed and recorded on a 45 RPM disc by HMV. The Corps song depicts in simple language the various facets of the Corps. Shri Sahir Ludhianvi composed the song; Shri Khayyam has scored the music and it is sung by late Mukesh, Mahendra Kapoor and others under the able direction of Shri Yash Chopra, the famous director.

From the picture of the disc that he has shared along with the audio, artists involved in the NFS; the singers, lyricist, composer and this case the director Yash Chopra are quite evident.

And now starts the story, which, as I write; am afraid has no definite answers or conclusions.

Even before the two famed voices start singing the NFS, the prelude composition unmistakably takes us back to the radio days program “Jaimala” on Vividh Bharathi. Yes, the popular signature tune of the program. It’s used once before the voices start singing and thrice at the end of the song. So was the signature tune of Jaimala program used from this particular composition of Khayyam saab or someone else had composed the tune earlier and Khayyam saab took the liberty of burrowing it for obvious reasons?

In this quest, apart from our editors, I sought help from our Avinash ji also. A good friend that he is, instead of helping me, he put up a bigger problem and that too with documentary proof. 

Apparently, the book Khayyam The Man – His Music, researched, compiled and edited by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee has a special mention of this NFS in the footnotes and states that Mukesh is not part of the song.

Well, on listening to the song, it is true that Mukesh’s voice is extremely difficult to identify as Mahendra Kapoor’s strong metallic voice overshadows and looms large in the entire song. However, with due regards to the authors of the book on Khayyam, I have the following to submit.

1. On keener listening at the start of the song, there is indeed a trace of Mukesh’s voice that can be heard separately. It lasts for a very short while though.

2. Again, there seems to be a difference when Mahendra Kapoor is singing in unison with Mukesh and the chorus is rendering its part in the song. I mean, evidently, there is one more voice with Mahendra Kapoor.

3. The official home page of the Indian Army under its section Corps Colour And Song clearly attributes the artists involved in the making of the song and Mukesh is very much mentioned.

4. The gramophone record disk clearly displays Mukesh’s name on it. In fact, Mukesh is printed before Mahendra Kapoor. 🙂

5. A few articles on the net which seem to have copied info from the army website invariably mention Mukesh.

6. There is photograph easily available on the net depicting the two singers. Though there were quite a few private concerts that the two participated, this particular snap because of the attire seems to be very much from the recording of the said NFS. Mukesh also has a book in his left hand and some notes can be seen. I wonder if the same can be deciphered to conclude the matter.

Harish Raghuwanshi’s latest edition of MGK also does not feature this NFS. In my brief interaction with him on email, I was given to understand that he did get this information a few years back but could not lay his hands on the audio. He as such has not ruled out Mukesh’s voice in the song.

So, there are two important aspects to be firmly decided.

1. If Khayyam saab was the original composer of the signature tune used in Jaimala program.
2. The undeniable and irrefutable fact of Mukesh being the co-singer with Mahendra Kapoor in view of the footnote in the book on Khayyam saab.

I leave it to the editors, readers and knowledgeable contributors to throw more light and perceptions on the above two points.

It was important to include a post on Mukesh’s collaboration with Mahendra Kapoor along with the table of songs and I am happy that I got an opportunity to do so with this NFS.

I take this opportunity to thank all the seva core jawans for the invaluable service that they are rendering to our country.

Further, today on 26 January 2023, while we celebrate our 74th Republic Day, let us be thankful and express our sincere gratitude to all the soldiers of our armed forces for the supreme sacrifice they are making in keeping us safe.

Long live our motherland.

Jai Hind.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Missing movies of 1975)
——————————————-——————————

(A tribute to actor Om Puri- On his Remembrance Day)

Today 6th January 2022 is sixth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of one of the finest actors this country has produced. We are all aware of his talent and he has acted in several international films too.

He was born on 18th October 1950 in Ambala-Punjab.

He is none other than our beloved Om Puri. An actor without a face or rather a ‘cinematic face’ as he was ridiculed at the FTII Pune during his days there. I remember, there was an article about him in a Marathi magazine or Newspaper (I do not remember correctly) titled ‘bin chehryacha kalaawant’ (literally meaning ‘an actor without a face’) after ‘Ardhsatya’ had released.

I also remember that I had watched this movie after passing my matriculation exams that year in 1983. Later on I got to watch many of his movies on TV and also watched the show ‘Bharat Ek Khoj’ where he appeared as an actor and was a commentator too.

I also remember his role in ‘Kakkaji Kahin’ – a TV serial- which I like very much. (I wish it should be ‘telecast’ again).

There is a long list of his movies I watched and wherein I like the characters he played. I am not going to mention the list and others details in today’s post here.

His struggles since his childhood days and later on how he reach to the National School of Drama and from there to the FTII Pune and how he reach to the mainstream cinema speaks a lot about his character and the person he was. From FTII Pune to mainstream Cinema and displaying his talent in acting is like a ‘dream story’.

He was famous for his ‘outspokenness’ and calling a spade ‘a spade’ and that many times landed him in controversies too. His personal life had also not gone well for him which hastened his ill health and that may have also been resulted an un-timely death of this ‘greatest actors’.
Missing him is like missing someone from your very near and dear ones.

It was shocking news for me the day he passed away or rather the next day of his death when the news broke in the next day morning to me. (I was at Anand that day. I and my wife had come from Nagpur to meet our daughters who were studying at Vidyanagar then.).

Today as a tribute to him I present a song from a lesser known or obscure movie ‘Chor Chor Chhup Jaa-1975’.
This is said to be the first film of Om Puri.

This movie was a ‘children’s movie’.

It was directed by B.V. Karanth for ‘Children’s Film Society of India’ and ‘Karanth Associates’

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.11.1975.

It had Om Puri (chor), Prasad Tagat (Madhav) and Bandar (Ramu), Dr. N. Ratna, Vishwanath Mirle, Ratna Vishwanath, Aster Anantmurty, Sheela Rao,

Mohan and Zareena are singers whose voices are used in the only song this movie has.

The idea of the story and scenario is by Dr. N. Ratna.

Editing of this movie was done by P. Bhaktavatsalam. The dialogues of this movie were written by Bansi Kaul who was also the Deputy Director of this movie.

Screenplay was written by B.V. Karanth and he also composed the music for this movie.

Here is a short note about what this movie is all about taken from ‘worldcat.org’ –B.V. Karanth page.

Madhav a mute kid has too many wonderful toys, but no friends to play with. He befriends Ramu, a monkey and his owner, a thief. This strange friendship has an unexpected affect. In trying to talk to the monkey, Madhav begins speaking haltingly, while Ramu’s thieving owner moved by the child’s innocence decides to give up stealing.
What happens next?

Luckily this movie is available on ‘Youtube’ and those interested can watch it there.

I am very much thankful to the up-loader of this movie.

I watched this movie and enjoyed it as I always have a liking for such type of movies.

As mentioned about today’s song is sung by Mohan and Zareena (HFGK mentions Rubeena) which on screen is lip synced by Om Puri (first part) and Prasad Tagat (second part).

This is a playful song which happens when the child, the ‘chor’ and the Bandar ‘ramu’ are playing ‘hide and seek’ game and the second part is when the ‘chor’ and his ‘bandar’ leave the kid at his home …

Let us enjoy today’s song and watch the young Om Puri in his first film (if the sources are correct).

#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (missing movies of 1975- Lyricist Ravindra Jain)
————————————

Welcome all to this post which marks my 6th hundredth post on the blog. This year ‘2022’ has been a very good year for me especially in terms of my contributions for the blog. This year I celebrated milestone of ‘five hundredth post’ in the month of ‘April 2022’ and today I reach six hundred posts on the blog. (there is much more to my statistics for the year ‘2020’, ‘2021’ & ‘2022’ , but that is the matter of another post which I would take at appropriate time 🙂 in the future.).

I once again express my gratitude for Atul ji for giving me this opportunity to be associated with this blog. I am also grateful to Sudhir ji and all senior members on the blog for their blessings and always supporting me and appreciating my efforts.

In my earlier post I had mentioned that these days I was looking for songs written by Ravindra Jain.
Ravindra Jain who started his journey into Hindi Film Music in the decade of ‘seventies’ bring with him a ‘freshness’ in the Hindi Film Music with his touch of ‘folk based’ music and some simple poetry in his lyrics.

We are all aware of how Ravindra Jain who was ‘blind’ since his birth went on to become a successful composer in Hindi Film Industry and produced some of the immortal songs for Hindi Film Music. He not only achieved ‘multifaceted’ success in the Film Industry but also composed for TV Serials and wrote songs too.

For today’s occasion I will not go into the details of his biography. Instead, I will present here his filmography since his debut in Hindi movies as a music composer in 1972- to till the end of that decade i.e., 1971-1980.

I have earlier compiled and presented the filmography of Sahir Ludhianvi and Khayyam Saab on the blog. I wish to present to compile and present the filmography of Kavi Pradeep, Pt. Narendra Sharma on the blog in the future.

For this post I have tried and compiled the filmography of Ravindra Jain as a ‘lyricist’ till the year of 1980. For the years 1980s and onwards I have added those movies which have already been represented on the blog till now (and not all the movies of him from 1980 onwards. That I have left for another post in the future).

Let us now have a look over the filmography of Ravindra Jain as mentioned above.

Ravindra Jain as a lyricist has already reached over one hundred songs on the blog.
But still, there are many of his movies from this decade 1971-1980 which have not been presented on the blog. I will also try to bring them on here in the future.

Today I am introducing one such movie from this decade.

Today’s song is from the ‘1975’ movie ‘Salaakhen’.

In my previous post I had mentioned that Ravindra Jain’s compositions from the movies ‘Geet Gaata Chal-1975’, ‘Chitchor-1976’, ‘Fakira-1976’, and etc? ( 🙂 ) did feature in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of the year ‘1976’ …

This ‘etc?’ is the song of today’s which ranked at 29th in the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1976’. This song was composed as well as written by Ravindra Jain.

A sweet-melodious song to listen to …

I would also like to repeat the same about this movie ‘Salaakhen-1975’ that I do not remember to have read about this movie or any discussion about this movie among our friend circle then. And I think this movie was also a non-successful and a forgotten movie of its time.

This date ten years ago (viz 4 September 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Zindagi Aur Toofaan -1975#
—————————————

‘Ek hasrat thhi ke aanchal ka mujhe pyaar miley…Zindagi aur bataa tera iraadaa kya hai’

I have been listening to this song since my childhood and I have been liking it without any apparent reason. May be the overall composition touched me somewhere and it remain in my memory since then. Later, as I grew up and listened to this song, I liked its lyrics very much and continue to enjoy it whenever it was played around on radio or elsewhere.

Despite all that, I neither searched for the details of the song and its movie nor did I search for other songs from the movie.

The song I mentioned above had been posted on the blog on 30.11.2009. That is almost 12 years, 7 months and 11 days (as on 10.07.2022) or 4606 days after the first song of this movie was discussed on the blog.

I came across this movie-title during my daily browsing of the blog recently, and so here I am taking the chance to go through the details of this movie, its songs and also add the second song of this movie on the blog today.

The song I mentioned on the top of this article is from the movie ‘Zindagi Aur Toofaan’ (1975).

I am not aware how this movie had fared on box-office then. But it seemed to be a forgotten and obscure movie of its time. Hindi movie goers of those days must be well aware of the ‘other’ movies released during this year and one can easily guess that this movie must have been forgotten in the spate of the other popular movies of that year.

‘Zindagi Aur Toofaan’ was directed by Umesh Mathur for Kirtimaan Films, Bombay. It was produced by Lalit Mohan and Charu Mitra.

It had Yogita Bali, Sajid Khan, Helen, Sulbha Deshpande, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Appi Umrani, Asit Sen, Mukri, Bhagwan, Sikandar Azam, Shefali Choudhary, Master Shahid, Master Majid, Bharat, Bal Kishan, Rajat Kumar, Balwant Singh, Satyender Verma, Manu Dhawan, Kishan, Daya Devi, Leena Das, Pal Sharma, Chandu, Pardesi, Ratan Gaurang, MA Latif, Mumtaz Begum, Geeta Khanna, CM Nagar, and others.

Rehana Sultana and Rakesh Pande made a guest appearances in this movie.

This movie was based on the famous Hindi novel ‘Talaash’ written by Mahavir Adhikari. Mahavir Adhikari also wrote the story and dialogues of this movie. Screenplay of this movie was written by Umesh Mathur who was the director of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

‘Zindagi Aur Toofaan’ was passed by Censor Board on 06.12.1975 (with a ‘restricted viewing (A) certificate).

This movie had four songs in it. Ram Avtar Tyagi wrote the lyrics for two songs, Indeevar and Ram Bharadwaj wrote lyrics for one song each. Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle, Dilraj Kaur, and Amit Kumar (Amit Gangoli as mentioned in the titles of the movie) had given their voices to the songs of this movie.
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 Ek hasrat thhi ke aanchal ka mujhe pyaar miley Ram Avtar Tyagi Mukesh, Chorus 30.11.2009
02 Main bhi to akela, main bhi to akeli hoon Ram Bharadwaj Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri kashti toofaan mein hichkole khaaye jaaye Indeevar Asha Bhonsle
04 Raat madhosh hai khamosh sitaare jaage Ram Avtar Tyagi Asha Bhonsle, Dilraj Kaur

As mentioned above, only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 30.11.2009. Today I present another song from this movie. It is a solo song sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced by Yogita Bali. Sajid Khan, the hero of the movie is also seen in the picturisation of this song.

It is a nice song to listen to (and watch too). The song somehow sounds like a familiar song. I have not watched this movie yet. So, I cannot say in what context this song happens in the movie.

Let us listen to today’s song now …

Song-Meri kashti toofaan mein hichkole khaaye jaaye (Zindagi aur Toofaan)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein ae

dariyaa hai ye ae zindagani
toofaanon jaisi jawaani
dariyaa hai ye ae zindagani
toofaanon jaisi jawaani
dil mera chanchal
dil mera chanchal
armaanon ki maujon se takraaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein ae ae

main to hoon aisi dhaara
dhoondhoon baahon on ka kinaara
main to hoon aisi dhaara
dhoondhoon baahon on ka kinaara
dil mein hai udaasi ee
dil mein hai udaasi
umr hai pyaasi
pyaasi hi mujhe dubaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein
hichkole khaaye jaaye
tere pyaar ki jo patwaar miley to
mumkin hai bach jaaye
meri kashti toofaan mein ae

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Toofaan -1975#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the movie “Toofaan-1975”.

I have vague memories of watching this movie in my childhood. But I do not remember the movie, its songs, or its story. What I remember is the hero wearing a mask (Zorro type mask) and riding a horse, with a sword in his hand (?).

I had in one of my earlier post on the blog mentioned earlier that I get to watch the movies ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’, ‘Double Cross-1973’ and ‘Toofaan-1975’ on back to back days at small town ‘Malkapur’ in the ‘Vidarbha’ region of Maharashtra (somewhere around 1976-1977).

My parents were on tour to this place for their ‘Marathi play’ to be staged there. I must be around eight-nine years old then. I and my brothers get to watch these movies then. As I mentioned earlier, I carried the memories of one song (or rather their ‘mukhda’ only) each from ‘Do Khilaadi’ and ‘Double Cross’ and from this movie ‘Toofaan’ I remember the masked hero only and the name of the hero i.e. Vikram.

Today I present the first song from this movie ‘Toofaan-1975’ on the blog and this movie is making a debut on the blog today.

‘Toofaan-1975’ was directed by Kedar Kapoor for ‘Sargam Pictures (Pvt.) Ltd., Bombay’.

It had Vikram, Priyadarshini, Roopesh Kumar, Jagdeep, B.M. Vyas, Jeevan, Jayraj, Trilok Kapoor, Sajjan, Rajan Haksar, Abhijit Sen, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Shetty, V. Gopal, Shriram, Ramlal, Vijay Khanna, Urmila Bhatt, Praveen Pal, Meena T., Bahnumati, Sujata and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975.

‘Toofaan-1975’ has seven songs, all of them penned by Ravindra Jain.

Ravindra Jain also composed the music for this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Toofaan toofaan hai mera naam Mohd Rafi
02 O barkha mujhe sach sach bataa Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
03 Pyaar kar, pyaar kar, dhaar kar, dhaar kar Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Baj jaayega baaja baj jaayega Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Reshma mera naam hai, naachna mera kaam hai Asha Bhonsle
06 Chalo koi khel khelen ham Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
07 Sachche ka sachche ka bolbaala Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. It is an ‘introduction type’ song and its lyrics are very simple and straightforward. ( I listen to the other couple of songs from this movie and I find they also have very simple and straightforward lyrics 😊. Our readers will be able to listen to them on the blog as and when they are posted here).

On screen we see the ‘masked hero’ lip syncing this song ( because he doesn’t take out the ‘mask’ and so his face cannot be seen 😊, but he must be Vikram – the hero of this movie 😊 ).
We do not have any option to watch the song as it is because the hero is telling us in the song that ‘karoon main to apne hi jee ki, chaahe kuchh bhi ho anjaam’ 😊. We can see the hero travelling riding on a horse through different terrains and waiving people (villagers) and taking care of them and helping them.

( I guess this movie must have been inspired by the character of ‘Zorro’. We have one more movie like this 😊 )

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to and enjoy today’s song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Ravindra Jain, and he has also composed the music.

By listening to the today’s song we can also guess what the movie is all about …

With the today’s song ‘Toofaan-1975’ makes its debut on the blog and joins the ‘Toofaan’ (s 😊) of ‘1954’, ‘1969’, and ‘1989’ already available on the blog.

That is all for now 😊 let’s listen to the song now …

Editor’s note:-This song from “Toofaan”(1975) is Mohammad Rafi’s 3200th song in the blog and 1500th solo Mohammad Rafi song in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

There are so many possible songs to go with today’s post. Songs that will do justice to the personality and versatile talent of the concerned celebrity.
He was an actor born with acting in his genes. He was not a star-kid but a star-heir, facing the camera for the first time when he was barely 2 or 3 years old. He was seen next as an adolescent playing his father’s Bachpan. All that I have written are well known facts about this actor, who in later years turned a producer-director much like his father. Along with his brothers he tried to keep the studio and banner, set up by his showman father, aloft till 2017 when the iconic property in Mumbai’s Chembur area caught fire and collapsed during the shoot of a television reality show. The brothers then decided to pull down the shutters on a piece of history of Indian cinema.

Regular movie-buffs will know that I am speaking of Raj Kapoor’s sons- Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv and the RK Films and RK Studios. The last movie that came from this banner was “Aa Ab Laut Chalen” (1999) which was directed by Rishi Kapoor. Before that “Prem Granth” (1996) which was directed by Rajiv Kapoor and “Henna” (1991) directed by Randhir Kapoor were the offerings from RK Films both of which had Rishi Kapoor playing the central character.

As I mentioned above Rishi Kapoor had acting in his genes with all the males (before him) from his family, being in the entertainment industry -Prithviraj Kapoor (grandfather), Raj Kapoor (father) Shammi Kapoor & Shashi Kapoor (uncles). Chintu (as Rishi Kapoor used to be addressed fondly) had shared screen space with his uncles and has been directed by his father in a few movies. I doubt if has appeared in any movie with his niece- Karisma and Kareena; but he has acted with his son Ranbir which was incidentally his wife Neetu’s comeback to movies, after she quit the limelight for family life.

The last movie that he faced the camera for, post his return from USA after undergoing treatment for the dreaded C, released on an OTT channel on 31st March 2022. I happened to see this for the love of Chintu and I must say ‘I was not disappointed’.

Chintu was one actor who had always emoted well and things were not any different in “Sharmaji Namkeen”. The unique thing about the film was the way they had two actors play a single character. Maybe a first in Indian movies. Actually, there was about four days shoot left, of the movie, at the time of Chintu’s passing. Paresh Rawal stepped in and the movie was completed. The makers didn’t re-shoot the parts which Chintu had completed. Instead, the transition in the scenes with the two actors was kept seamless and they didn’t try to get a single person to dub for the two actors (both actors spoke in their own voice). I would love to see the movie all over again just to enjoy the smooth handling of the movie. It had all the trademark stuff that fans of Chintu loved him for including the sweaters and mufflers that he was famous for.

Much as I would like to share a song from “Sharmaji Namkeen” in this post I am settling for one of his popular numbers from the ’70s. (Link to Sharmaji songs is not yet available on Youtube).

Today’s song may well be one of those categorized as “How come this song was not posted earlier?”. It features Chintu with Neetu Singh and is written by Gulshan Bawra. Kalyanji Anandji are the music directors of this song that is sung by Shailendra Singh and Asha Bhonsle.

This movie, “Rafoo Chakkar” (1975), was directed by Narinder Bedi and produced by House of Nadiadwalas. It had Faryal, Asrani, Paintal, Rajindernath, Sulochana, Mumtaz Begum, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Shetty, Kamran, etc in addition to the lead pair of Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor. It had six songs of which the blog has the following four.

Song Date of posting
Chhu chhuk chhak chhak Bombay se Baroda tak 4 September 2012
Dil lena buri bala hai 22 August 2013
Tumko mere dil ne pukaara hai 21 January 2014
Bhajan bina chain na aaye Raam 30 June 2020

Let us enjoy the locales of Kashmir and remember how simple life was back in the 70s. The girl needed to educate the guy ‘what love was all about’ 🙂


Song-Kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai (Rafoo Chakkar)(1975) Singers-Shailendra Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai
kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
koi dil pe agar chha jaaye to kya hota hai

wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai

mujhko zulfon ke saaye mein so jaane do sanam
mujhko zulfon ke saaye mein so jaane do sanam
ho raha hai jo dil mein ho jaane do sanam
ho raha hai jo dil mein ho jaane do sanam

baat dil ki dil mein rah jaaye to phir kya hota hai
baat dil ki dil mein rah jaaye to phir kya hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoo e khuda hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai

kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai

kya manzoor hai khuda ko baataao to zara
kya manzoor hai khuda ko bataao to zara

jaan jaaogi, baahon mein aa jaao to zara
jaan jaaogi, baahon mein aa jaao to zara
koi jo baahon mein aa jaaye to phir kya hota hai
koi jo baahon mein aa jaaye to phir kya hota hai

wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai
kisi pe dil agar aa jaaye to kya hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai
wahi hota hai jo manzoor e khuda hota hai

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 17? # Himalay Se Oonchaa-1975 #
————————————————————

‘Himaalaya Se Oonchaa-1975’ was produced by Baboo Mehra and directed by B.S. Thapa for ‘Prakash Mehra Combine, Bombay’.

It had Sunil Dutt, Mallika Sarabhai, Ranjeet, Rakesh Pande, Shiv Kumar, Raju, Bittoo, Nandita Thakur, Achala Sachdev, Sanjana, Ram Mohan, Goga, Yunus Parvez, Sunder, Randhir, Mac Mohan, Jayraj, Karan Deewan, M. Rajan, Kumud Tripathi, Amrit Pal, Narayan, R. P. Sethi, Jankidas, Bhola, Gulshan Bawra, Yograj, B.M. Vyas, B.B. Bhalla, Kirti Kumar, Rajan Kapoor and others. Dev Kumar, Gautam Sarin and Aruna Irani had a friendly appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mohan Kaul. He also co-authored the screenplay writing with Satish Bhatnagar.
Dialogues for this movie were written by Satish Bhatnagar.

Editing of this movie was done by R.D. Mahadik.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.04.1975.

This movie had four songs written by Indeevar (three songs) and Anjaan (one song). Music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Kanchan and Shivangi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Following is the list of songs this movie had (as given on the movie-page of this movie in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980)).

SNo Title of the Song Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Ho… ooparwaale ajab teri maaya Indeevar Manna Dey, chorus
02 O saathi re… pyaar jise kehte hai ik baar kiya jaata hai Indeevar Lata Mangeshkar Being discussed today
03 Raahi o raahi …tere sar pe duaaon ke saaye rahe Indeevar Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 01.06.2013
04 Thhithum… arey kahaan gayaa kidhar gayaa Anjaan Kanchan, Baby Shivangi

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie in my childhood with either my brothers & cousins, or my uncles. I had a big nostalgia of the song ‘raahi o raahi’ from this movie, and when I became a member of this blog, I had shared this song then in 2013. The video of this song was not available then. However, in the recent years the songs of this movie and the movie itself has been made available on internet by enthusiastic music and film lovers. I had in my memory a scene from this movie and that is about some snowy mountains and Sunil Dutt carrying his brothers on his shoulders. I have to watch this movie again to clear my doubt (of some ‘miracle’ happening in the movie?), I am leaving that to be discussed in a separate post in the future.

Today 27th February’2022 is the twenty-fifth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (1 January 1924 – 27 February 1997) of ‘Shyamlal Babu Rai’ who is popularly know to us as ‘lyricist Indeevar’. As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from ‘Himaalay Se Oonchaa-1975’, which will be the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog after 01.06.2013 (when the first song was posted). Though lyrics of the today’s song were also noted around the same time in 2013 it somehow remains to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar and it is lip synced by Mallika Sarabhai. Sunil Dutt is also seen in the picturization of this song.

Music for this movie is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. And as mentioned above lyrics for today’s song is written by Indeevar.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

Song-O saathi re pyaar jisko kehte hain (Himalay Se Ooncha)(1975) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

O saathi re ae ae
O
O saathi re ae ae
Pyaar jisko kehte hain
Ik baar kiya jaata hai
Ho pyaar jisko kehte hain
Ik baar kiya jaata hai
Dil jisko kehte hain
Ek baar diya jaata hai
Ye nazron ka naata hai
Sabse nahin jodaa jaaye
Chaahe dam toote to toote
Par pyaar naa toda jaaye
O saathi re ae ae
O
O saathi re ae ae

Man ki chunariyaa aa aa
Man ki chunariyaa
Man ki chunariyaa
Rangi tere rang mein
Ho rangi tere rang mein
Preet ki dagariyaa
Chali tere sang mein
Ho chali tere sang mein
Parbat bhi sheesh-mahal hain
Tu paas agar sanwariyaa
Tere sang to angaaron pe
Ho aa sakti hai re nindiya
O saathi re ae
O
O saathi re ae ae

Pyaar kiya maine ae
O
Pyaar kiya maine ae
Pyaar kiya maine
Takraar ke bahaane
Takraar ke bahaane
Ikraar kiya maine
Inkaar ke bahaane
Inkaar ke bahaane
Dil kabse thha deewaana
Par hamne aaj pehchaana
Tere bina hain mushkil jeena
Tujhse bichhde tab jaana
O saathi re ae ae
O
O saathi re ae ae

Pyaar jisko kehte hain
Ik baar kiya jaata hai
Dil jisko kehte hain
Ek baar diya jaata hai
Ye nazron ka naata hai
Sabse nahin jodaa jaaye
Chaahe dam toote to toote
Par pyaar naa toda jaaye
O saathi re ae ae
O
O saathi re ae
O saathi re ae

Hullo Atuldom

My family and some members of this world of Atulsongaday, which I like to refer to as Atuldom, know my love for a few actors from the Hindi Film World. Specially the actors who graced the silver screen in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Many of the actors of that period are in the 60 to 75/80+ age group. Actors Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Rekha, Hema Malini, Zeenat Aman, Jaya Bhaduri, Dharmendra, some actors played character roles in that period etc. when they make an appearance on reality television I make it a point to see those episodes and on repeat if possible.

Kaun Banega Crorepati had one such episode on 15th October 2021. It was advertised as ‘Sholay Reunion Special’ (if I got the title right). It was like a reunion of school friends. Hema Malini and Ramesh Sippy were the guests who played the game for some charity. It was cute to see Hemaji and AB Sr. mouthing lines of all the characters – Gabbar Singh, Angrezon ke zamaane ka jailor, Veeru, Jai – whose pictures were flashed on the big screen. Hema Malini did the Jailor’s typical laugh and also “basanti inn kutton ke saamne matt nachna” and I was all eyes and ears. Imagine how soothing it must have been to see a sooper pretty lady, with her typical manner of speech, giving answers to the questions. Here I would like to mention that the questions were ‘made to order’ to enable Ramesh Sippy and Hemaji earn 25l to fund their charities. There were two highlights in the show; one was when Veeru joined the show over video call.
The other and more appropriate (IMO) part of the show was when they brought Reshma Pathan on the show. This is the lady who has played a body double for all the stunts that heroines were shown to be carrying out in the movies of the 70s and 80s. Hemaji and Rameshji showered their praises on this lady for helping out with the stunts in Sholay. They specially mentioned the action scene, after the Holi song, where a child is shown crying near the ‘merry-go-round’ and a lady comes running to rescue the child.

Towards the final section of the program they wished (in advance) The Beautiful Hema Malini for her birthday. I had also thought up a few possible songs to go with this post. Then I happened to see a comment on the blog, by Manohar Lal Dave, who had reminded that 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

We will enjoy this song from “Sanyasi” (1975) of which the blog has five songs. This is the sixth written by Varma Malik and tuned S-J and it is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing the Ever-so- gorgeous, beautiful, elegant DreamGirl on her birthday with this song.

Song-Sun baal brahmchaari main hoon kanya kunwaari (Sanyaasi)(1975) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

tere man mein preet ka rang bhar doon
aaj tapasya bhang kar doon
sun baal brahmchaari
main hoon kanya kunwari

aake khadi hoon dwaare tere
kyun baithha hai aankhen phere
aake khadi hoon dwaare tere
kyun baitha hai aankhen phere
in aankhon ki madira pee le
in aankhon ki madira pee le
chhodne waala hans kar jee le
ari sun roopwati
main hoon sant jati sati (?)
kisi aur pe dore daalo
meri maa mujhe bacha lo

sun baal brahmchaari

aag se jaise lipta paani
hey Raamji duhaai
ye Saroopnakha aayi
apne Lakshman ko sambhaalo
meri maa mujhe bacha lo

sun baal brahmchaari

roop mein mere itni shakti
karne lagega meri bhakti
aaye nikat nikat
hai samaysya vikat
koi iska ticket kata lo
meri maa mujhe bacha lo

sun baal brahmchaari
main hoon kanya kunwaari
sun baal brahmchaari
main hoon kanya kunwaari
tere man me preet ka rang bhar du
aaj tapasya bhang kar doon
sun baal brahmchaari
main hoon kanya kunwaari
sun baal brahmchaari
main hoon kanya kunwaari

Hullo Atuldom

Choosing a song for today’s post was not so easy. We are celebrating our beloved Kishore Kumar’s 92nd birthday and seem to have run out of all popular songs. Songs that are played on the repeat on music channels and FM radio are not for us. We, a tribe that is called Atulites, living in Atulsongaday.me kingdom (Atuldom for short) are not satisfied with oft-repeated songs.

Not that we don’t love a ‘jeewan ke safar mein raahi’; ‘zindagi ke safar mein’; ‘zindagi ka safar’ or ‘zindagi ek safar’ (some songs that say ‘life is a journey’) as much as ‘munna bada pyaara’; ‘chanda o chanda’; ‘soyi ja taara’; or ‘aa ri aa jaa’ and ‘ankhiyon mein chhote chhote sapne sajaay ke’. Atulites also savor ‘ye raatein ye mausam nadi ka kinaara’ along with ‘main hoon jhum jhum jhum jhum jhumroo’.

There are some Atulites for whom the Kishore Kumar era began with ‘mere sapnon ki rani’ and the songs of ‘Padosan’ and all songs of Rajesh Khanna movies of the ’70s (like yours truly).

There are other Atulites who have seen the growth of this actor/singer/composer/ lyricist/ producer/ director from the ’40s. He was a K L Saigal fan (and from what I have read at various places, most singers of that period were Saigal fans) and his first song in Bollywood “marne ki duaayen kyun mangoon” has a rather “Saigal feel” to it. That didn’t stop him from ‘yodelling’ once he discovered that aspect of singing, inspired by Jimmie Rodgers and Tex Morton.

He was equally comfortable singing ‘aake seedhi lagi dil pe jaise katariya’ and ‘mere naina saawan bhadon’. Singing madcap songs like ‘ek chatur naar’ and ‘rafta rafta dekho aankh meri ladi hai’ was as natural as ‘panthhi hoon mein uss path ka’ and ‘aa chal ke tujhe main leke chaloon’.

I am sure any follower of the blog will say ‘there she goes on her worship Kishore Kumar journey’. But that is the male sound I heard maximum in my growing up years. Of course he came to that level after a long and arduous struggle.

He was mentored by SD Burman in his initial years of singing in movies after he got a break in ‘Ziddi’ under Khemchand Prakash’s music direction. Salil Chaudhary, OP Nayyar, Kalyanji Anandji, C. Ramachandra, Madan Mohan and all the music directors of that period have songs of Kishore Kumar that are still in public memory. That doesn’t mean he didn’t sing for the next generation of music directors. Can’t forget ‘inteha ho gayi intezaar ki’ – Bappi Lahiri, ‘Kya mausam hai’ -Rajesh Roshan, ‘tera chehera mujhe gulaab lage’- Anu Malik (oh yes! he has sung for Anu Malik too); and the biggest of the next generation music directors – R D Burman and Laxmi-Pyare- we cannot even list all the wonderful songs that he had sung under their music direction.

He has duets with male as well as female singers and also multi-singer songs best example of multi-singer song being Hum ko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen.

But why did I write ‘we have run out of popular songs’. Out of a possible 2709 songs (that the blog’s stats page says that we have of Kishore Kumar in Bollywood), 1245 have been posted in the blog. Of these 577 are solo songs of Kishore Kumar. That leaves us with 1464 songs to choose from. If I think of songs from the ’70s, we have many non- Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan songs to choose from which were regularly played on Vividh Bharati.

Seeing Randhir Kapoor on Indian Idol over the weekend reminded me of today’s song.
This post from last year gives the story of “Lafange” (1975) in brief. Today’s song helps to establish the character of Gopal played by Randhir Kapoor. It shows how heroes, who play con-men in movies, have gold-plated conscience. They rob the haves and help the have-nots. All heroes are Robinhoods when they play con-men and undergo a character change when they fall in love with the beautiful heroines. Predictable, correct?

Missing singer/actor/producer/director/ composer Kishoreda on his birth anniversary.
