Hullo to all Atulwaale

Majrooh Sultanpuri was an Urdu poet and also a lyricist or song writer for Bollywood movies. He was born in 1919 in Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh as Asrar ul Hassan Khan to a father who was a police officer. His father, though, a police officer, was not too keen on his son receiving English education and Majrooh was therefore sent for traditional ‘Madrasa education’ which led to his obtaining the qualification first of Dars-e-Nizami – a seven-year course which concentrated on religious affairs along with proficiency in Arabic and Persian- and then the certificate of Alim.(Personally, I don’t know what Alim is). He thereafter joined Lucknow’s Takmeel-ut-Tib College of Unani. He was a struggling Hakim when he happened to recite one of his ghazals at a mushaira in Sultanpur. The ghazal was a hit with the audience and Majrooh decided to drop his fledgling medical practice and began writing poetry seriously. Soon he was a ‘regular’ at mushairas and a “shagird” i.e. disciple of the then top name in Urdu Mushairas viz: Jigar Moradabadi.

While Majrooh is popular as a film lyricist and is widely known in that capacity, be it known that he also created one of the best-known verses of Urdu poetry, “Main akela hee chala tha janibe manzil magar, log saath aate gaye aur carvan banta gaya!” (I set off alone towards the destination but people joined in and soon it became a caravan!) Majrooh Saab (I think that is how an elder should be addressed) visited Bombay (now Mumbai) to attend a Mushaira where producer A.R. Kardar was part of the audience. He contacted Majroohsaab through Jigar Moradabadi and offered him a chance to write for movies which Majroohsaab refused as he didn’t think highly of them. But he relented on Jigar Moradabadi’s persuasion. Kardar then took him to Naushadsaab who tested whether Majrooh, gave him a tune and asked him to write something to fit that and Majrooh returned with “Jab Usne Gesu Bikhraye, Badal Aaye Jhoom Ke”; Naushad was impressed and they worked together in Majrooh’s first movie “Shahjehan” in 1946.So that then was Majrooh’s entry into movies. His work lasted well into the next millennium with movies that had songs penned by him releasing as late as 2004 – a forgettable masala movie “Ek se Badkar Ek” had “aankhon hi aankhon mein yeh kya baat ho gayi” which was penned by Majroohsaab. And I must say the song was good inspite of the movie.

A small trivia here: 2011 had a movie called “Soundtrack” which had my favourite Majrooh song of all times “ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke” and the makers of this movie were decent enough to give credit to Laxmi-Pyare and Majroohsaab.

In his long innings in Bollywood he had associated with the father S D Burman from “Paying Guest” (or even before that) to “Abhimaan” and with the son R D Burman we had albums like “Caravan” “Yaadon Ki Baraat”“Teesri Manzil” and all the etceteras that anyone cares to add. Majroohsaab also had association with another father -son pair. Can anyone forget “rahe na rahe hum mehka karenge” or “ab kya misaal doon mein tumhare shabab ki” with Roshan’s music? His work with Roshan’s son Rajesh Roshan is nothing less and equally popular. If I am not wrong the association started with “Kunwara Baap” in 1974 and went on with works like “Udhar ka Sindoor’’ “Jay Vijay’’ “Inkaar’’ –remember ’’tu mungda mein gud ki dali’’ was from the pen of Majroohsaab, unbelievable no? the 2001 release “Mujhe meri biwi se bachaao” was the last time Rajesh Roshan got to work with Majroohsaab. Of course, we cannot forget all the other albums the two have associated for in the intervening years – “Doosra Aadmi” “Janta Hawaldaar” “Ek baap chhe bete” etc.

“Doosra Aadmi” was a movie that was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Ramesh Talwar. This was Ramesh Talwar’s debut as director. It was written by Raju Saigal and Sagar Sarhadi and had a cast of Rakhee, Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Parikshat Sahni, Satyen Kappu, Deven Verma, Gita Siddharth, Sheetal etc.

Atulji has posted the first song from this movie in 2008. He had given a brief of the story in that post. He followed it up with a post that had Deven Verma singing a beautiful song.

Here is the next song from this movie which was requested by someone called Bharati in the comments section to the song “Kya Mausam hai”. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It is more of a background song played at a house-party and Rakhee and Rishi waltz to the tune in a dimly lit room with Parikshat Sahni looking not-so-approvingly as he is the only person who knows that Rakhee is looking for Shashi Kapoor in Rishi Kapoor.

Today on the occasion of Majrooh saab’s remembrance day and Rajesh Roshan’s 64th birthday a song they gave us in 1977 i.e. 42 years back.


Song-Aao manaayen jashne mohabbat (Doosra Aadmi)(1977) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan
Both

Lyrics

Aaa
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

hamaari tamanna tumhen pyaar karna
hamein aur karna kya
hamein aur karna kya
mohabbat mein ruswa
huye bhi toh kya hai
duniya se darna kya

aage koyi ilzaam nahin hai
chaahat ke ilzaam ke baad
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthaayen jaam ke baad
aao manaayen

yeh aalam hai jaise
udda jaa raha hoon
tumhein leke baahon mein
tumhein leke baahon mein

tumhaare labon se
hamaare labon tak
nahin koyi raahon mein
kaise koyi
abb dil ko sambhaale
itne haseen paighaam ke baad

aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 12
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day in 2009, the film ‘Darling Darling’ made its debut on our blog. This 1977 production from Fortune Films International, has six songs. The song that brought in this film to our blog is the Kishore Kumar favorite – “Aise Na Mujhe Tum Dekho”.

Then, over the past decade, only one more song of this film was added. And now, in the 10 Year Challenge series, we are bringing on the third song of this film. An interesting side thought – maybe in the years to come, this blog and its data, relating to various stats, as well as patterns of how the films went from debut to yippee, will become fodder for PhD research projects at universities that have film studies departments. Research scholars will be analyzing such data to find correlations between the patterns of appearance of the songs of a film, and the perceived quality of its music, and its popularity curve. Interesting food for thought, right?

This 1977 film of Dev Anand, is not his own Navketan production. It was still the 1970s, and despite a descending graph, Dev Anand was still in demand enough to be called upon by other friendly production houses to play the lead role. In 1977, he was in his 54th year, and still going strong as the hero.

The film, from the banner of Fortune Films International, was directed by Gogi Anand. The star cast of this film reveals many a names which can be considered as fixtures in Dev Anand films; check out the names – Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Mehmood, Jeevan, Nadira, Dhiraj Kumar, Poonam, Durga Khote, Sajjan, Helen, Ranjan, Raj Verma, Shivraj, Shaifali, V Gopal, Jankidas, Hercules, Jhankna Desai, Geeta Khanna, Juliyan, Baby Guddi, Baby Padmini, Monto, Sheikh, Beerbal, Shahid Bijnauri, and Dhanna.

This song is performed in a mental asylum – a device that is used by directors to inject free format comic relief into the storyline. Dev Anand and Mehmood are leading the song performance. Dev Anand is sporting a full  beard as part of a disguise, and Mehmood appears in a tie and his birthday suit – well, almost 🙂 . As the song progresses, one realizes that they are on a search and rescue mission of some sort, as we see interludes of familiar faces as captives under duress. We get fleeting glimpses of Zeenat Aman, Sajjan and Nadira. We have already had a glimpse of Jeevan, in the very first scene of this song, leaving the premises with a large suitcase in his hand. One can also identify junior actor Sheikh, just behind Dev Anand and Mehmood, as the opening lines of this song are being rendered. I am sure there are more junior artists in this crowd of ‘mad’ persons which can be named, but I am not able to identify more.
[Note: Regulars will recall actor Sheikh – he has performed on screen, the iconic qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“, in the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958).]

The song is penned by Anand Bakshi and the music composition is by RD Burman. The singing voices are of Kishore Kumar and Mehmood.

This brings on the third song of this film – across a span of ten years. 🙂

Blog Day : 3877 Post No. : 14900

I began “Blog Ten year challenge (2009-2019)” early this year. As many as ten songs are covered in this series so far. Three other regulars (viz M/s Avinash Scrapwala, Sadanand Kamath and Sudhir Ji) have also chipped in with their articles in this series. In this series, we cover a song from a movie whose song (some other song obviously) was covered in the blog ten years ago on the same day.

There were days when no movies were eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge (2009-2019)” because all the songs covered on that day ten years ago had been YIPPEED by now.

I also noticed that those days in 2009 saw as many as six or seven songs being covered daily. That is in such sharp contrast to the present scene in 2019 where we are barely averaging one song daily thus finally living up to the blog name of “song a day”. 🙂

It basically tells us that a lot of things change in ten years. I was ten years younger in 2009. The blog too was just a few months old and I had a kind of passion and motivation for the blog that I now find impossible to summon for myself.

In one’s younger days, one is not as much in control of one’s life (professional as well as personal) as one becomes later in life. With time, one rises up the ladder in profession life. Simultaneously, ones kids also grow up.

In short, one feels far less in control of one’s life in one’s younger days. Still, that is compensated by youthful energy, passion and motivation. With time, one gains control of one’s life but begins to lose on the gifts of youthful energy, passion and motivation. 🙂

Despite being less in control of my life, I still had time and energy for online activities (which was something new those days). After spending nearly four years in various cricket forums (2004-2008), I began to try my hand in blogging in 2008. This blog was my second blog. My first blog was also related to HFM and associated topics and the articles in that blog were quite exhaustive and time consuming to write. If that blog was like test match, then this song blog was like ODI. 🙂 Much easier and less time consuming. 🙂

Just like ODI is more popular than test cricket, the song blog became popular whereas the other original blog fell by the way side. I posted fifty articles in that blog and then totally stopped updating that. That blog is now lying neglected, with the last post appearing nearly ten years ago in august 2009.

I found posting in the song blog a breeze, that is why I was able to cover six to seven songs everyday in the blog.

That was then ! Today, ten years later, even posting one song a day seems like too much work. Curiously, I had far more workload on me in professional and personal fronts ten years ago. Today I am almost in full control on both fronts. Still my present blog post productivity has taken a major hit. 🙂

There are reasons for that, of course. One reason could be that I posted with an uncluttered mind, like how Sehwag used to bat with an uncluttered mind. In fact, I recall Raja commenting those days that the blog centuries were coming at Sehwag like rate (viz in 14 to 15 days). 🙂

Another cricket concept that we have in the blog is dot day, like how there are dot balls in cricket. The blog more or less lived upto its aim of posting songs everyday come rain or shine, festivals or holidays. But still there are unavaoidable circumstances due to which there have been no posts on certain days. We call those days as dot days for the blog.

When I look at the dot days in the blog, I find that the year 2008 (when this blog began), there were three dot days, viz. 22 sep, 23 sep and 25 september. 2009, the first full year for the blog had as many as 25 dot days. Year 2010 saw a whopping 61 dot days. Year 2011 had 36 dot days.

Situation “improved” in 2012 with only 5 dot days whereas 2013 saw 7 dot days.

Next three years were bad. 2014 had 27, 2015 had 22 and 2016 had 22 dot days.

Amazingly, 2017 was a year with ZERO dot days. So there was a post every day in the year 2017. What an achievement for the blog that year, though I was not aware of it till a few days back.

2018 saw 7 dot days.

So far every day of 2019 has seen at least one post in the blog.

So overall there have been 215 dot days out of 3877 days that the blog has been in existence.

I mentioned above that 2009 had 25 dot days. The first dot day of 2009 was this day ten years ago, viz 28 february 2009.

Now, I would not like today to be a day without posts as part of my ten year challenge. 🙂 It only means that today is a day when blog ten year challenge cannot take place. 🙂

Today 28 february 2019 is the last day of the month. It is the day of clearing hisaab, viz that of milkman etc. It is also the day when many people whose birthday falls in the month superannuate if it was their 60th birthday.

It is a good time for the blog to notch another century, viz century number 149, in other words song post number 14900. This century has taken a glacial 72 days to arrive. The century must have been slow , but looking at the bright side, there was no dot day during these 72 days. 🙂

The song that I have chosen for the occasion is from “Shyam Tere Kitne Naam”(1977). This movie was produced by Vinod Kumar and A Narang and directed by Shantilal Soni. The movie had Sachin, Sarika, Meena T, Manhar Desai, Bharat Bhooshan, Shyama, Jalal Agha, Sunder etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

The song under discussion is sung by Hemlata. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

The song is picturised on Sarika and Sachin, who were a hit jodi of low budget movies in 1970s (mostly produced by Rajshree Productions).

This song marks the birth anniversary of Ravindra Jain (28 february 1944-9 October 2015). This song also happens to be the 100th song of Ravindra Jain in the blog as a music director. So Ravindra Jain becomes the latest centurion in the blog. He is the 36th music director and the 87th artist overall to have one hundred (or above) of his songs showcased in the blog.

As always, I thank one and all for their continuous support and encouragement which keeps fuelling the blog which in turn continues to chug on and on relentlessly in its musical journey.

Blog Day : 3875 Post No. : 14896

Hullo to all in Atuldom

I love masala movies as much as I love movies which are close to reality. I am of the opinion that movies should make us forget our daily tensions as much as entertain us. There were a few movie makers during my growing up years whose films were a must-see for my parents as they were entertaining as well as showed middle-class families and their ways. These movies were generally targeted towards family audiences – ‘Khoobsurat’ (1980), ‘Golmaal’ (1979), ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) etc fell in this category and I must thank Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chaterjee for these gems.

Then there were these absolute entertainers which needed us to keep “logic at home” before going to see them. Else how does one explain the story of a pair of twins one of whom looks much older than the other -‘Dharam Veer’ (1977) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979). How does one explain the jumps in the climax; the heroes begin punching the villains on board a ship – belonging to a Rajput clan- that is anchored at sea but sing romantic songs and songs of friendship in the environs of Kashmir (in ‘Dharam Veer’). Or the heroes are following the villain who has kidnapped their mother through the streets of Mumbai on the way to the Juhu airport (which used to be where people parked their private aircrafts formerly) but strangely the streets look like some foreign land – turns out it was Singapore!! But when the climax scene is getting over, and the villains meet their final fate, all the places that Mumbaikars are familiar with make an appearance on the screen (in ‘Suhaag’).

Now ‘Suhaag’ and ‘Dharam Veer’ are two movies which I must have seen a number of times (have lost count) in spite of all these glaring ‘logic-less-ness’ (I know there is no such word in English language). There are a few other movies which fall under the ‘entertainer without logic’ category- ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Parvarish’ (1977), ‘Naseeb’ (1981), ‘Desh Premee’ (1982), ‘Coolie’ (1983), ‘Mard’ (1985) – which I have seen about 100 times (not exaggerating). And it seems the maker of these Mr. Manmohan Desai had the confidence that his audience will lap it all up without questions.

In recent times I have been seeing these series of videos on YouTube wherein Amitabh Bachchan (the permanent fixture in most of the above-mentioned Manmohan Desai movies) in company of Rishi Kapoor was relating how they enacted all those scenes, as directed by Manji (Manmohan Desai’s pet name apparently) even if they were not personally convinced that there was any logic in the scene. The duo specially drew attention to the “mother of all logiclessness” scene – three people lying in a row and donating blood to an accident victim. Now there is nothing illogical in three people donating blood; but blood from the three being collected into a single bottle? And a single tube carrying blood to the patient!!! And has anyone heard of the blood group of RH. Also, Amitabh pointed out how Manji thought the villains were brainless as they could not see through the disguise of 3 people who have gate-crashed into a wedding and singing on top of their voices – ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’.

Anyway, such were the movies of Manmohan Desai in the 70s. He started making movies in the 60s with ‘Chhalia’ (1960) being his directorial debut. Which was followed by ‘Bluffmaster’ (1963), ‘Budtameez’ (1966), ‘Sachaa Jhootha’ (1970), ‘Kismat’ (1968) etc. Of the 20 films he made in a career span of 29 years 13 were successful. He had writers like Kadar Khan, KK Shukla, Prayag Raj, Salim Javed, Anand Bakshi, Sahir, Qamar Jalalabadi, Gulshan Bawra and Shailendra pen the stories and songs for these movies. He had also worked with Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmi Pyare, RD Burman and Anu Malik for music direction in his movies.

Today’s post is to remember the magic of Manmohan Desai on his 82nd birth anniversary and what better song than the one that shows his logical thinking. One patient getting blood from three donors all at once. 🙂

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 80 # Paapi-1977 #
————————————————————–

When our dear Atul ji recently started an ‘innovative’ initiative under the ‘ten-year challenge’ or ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ I felt excited and browsed through some dates of February 2009 on the blog to check about the songs and the the movies which featured on these dates ten year back.

I also mentioned in my comments on the blog that I would try to contribute as possible for this ‘challenge’ too. However, since I already have few of my earlier articles to be finished and other topics on my list, I could not contribute much to it till now. But I can see few opportunities for me in the coming days of this month 🙂

When I checked the songs posted ten years back for February 9th, I find that all the movies that were represeted that day viz. ‘Kismat-1968’, ‘Jugnu-1973’, ‘Brahmachari-1968’, ‘Sadhna-1958’, ‘Udan Khatola-1955’, ‘Paapi-1953’ and ‘Badi Bahan-1949’ have already been Yippeeeed’ on the blog or all songs from these movies have been covered on the blog.

The name of this movie ‘Paapi-1953’ reminded me of ‘Paapi-1977’. Though I had not watched this movie ‘Paapi-1977’, its name had been in my vague memory since my childhood and whenever I had been going through HFGK Vol. V, I had always thought of presenting a song from this movie since it belongs to the ‘Seventies’. This would also serve my purpose of ‘introducing the movie with same titles’ on the blog.

On our blog we already have ‘Paapi-1943’ and ‘Paapi-1953’ launched earlier.

Today ‘Paapi-1977’ makes its debut on the blog …

‘Paapi-1977’ was produced and directed by O.P. Ralhan for his home productions ‘Ralhan Productions. Bombay’. O.P. Ralhan also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Editing for this movie was done by Vasant Borkar.

It had Sunil Dutt, Sanjeev Kumar, Zeenat Aman, Reena Roy, Prem Chopra, Padma Khanna, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, Durga Khote, Jagdish Raj, Jatin, Appi Umrani, Dhanraj, Tuntun, Moolchand, Baby Deepa, Rajan Kapoor, Master Vikas, and Alka with O.P. Ralhan, Kamaldeep, Rajnath, Sheela, Ratan Gaurang, Jawahar Kaul and others.

Danny Dengzongpa makes a special appearance in this movie. Hina Kausar, Manmohan Krishan, Kamal Kapoor, Nana Palsikar, Sudhir makes a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.01.1977.

As per HFGK there are nine songs in this movie written by Naqsh Lyallpuri (five songs), Kulwant Jani (three songs) and Harindranath Chatopadhyay (one song). Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mahendra Kapoor, Ranu Mukherji and Miss Lorna had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri. And on listening to few songs from this movie one may think of its composed by Pancham Da, same like the music of ‘Chhaila Babu-1977’ which was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal in R.D. Burman style 🙂
I do not remember it, but I don’t think that I had listened to any of the songs from this movie earlier. Except the song that I am presenting today which after listening sound somewhat familiar to me or may be which I had heard on radio earlier. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and lyrics are by Naqsh Lyallpuri.
Also, I think that the songs from this movie may have been forgotten and none of them became popular.

From the nine songs in this movie Lata Mangeshkar has sung as many as four solo songs in this movie. Rafi Saab had one solo, while Mahendra Kapoor had two solo songs, and Ranu Mukherji and Lorna had sung one duet song in this movie.

On listening few times this song grows and I like it too.

Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri as mentioned above.

Since I have not watched this movie, I can’t say much about it or the songs from this movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs. Though, going by the star-cast of this movie I think this must be an ‘entertaining’ and ‘interesting to watch’ movie…

Let us now enjoy the today’s song from ‘Paapi-1977’ which is performed on screen by Zeenat Aman and we can see Prem Chopra, Padma Khanna, and others in the picturization of this song …

Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 4
———————————————

“Parvarish”(1977) was directed by Manmohan Desai for A G Films, Bombay. This movie had Shammi Kpoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Nitu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Kadar Khan, Amjad Khan, Dev Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Hina Kausar, Master Ratan, Master Tito, Chand Usmani, Sheikh, Bhushan Tiwari, Viju Khote, Tom Alter, Yusuf, Meena, Baby Shalu, Moolchand etc in it.

This movie has six songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past. This movie made its debut in the blog on 7 february 2009, viz on this day ten years ago. The song was Aji thahro zara thahro.. Jaate ho jaane jaana.

So this movie provided me an opportunity to discuss another song from the movie after exactly ten years. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This song is picturised on Nitu Singh and Amitabh Bachchan. I vaguely recall that our two heroes Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna play cops and the two heroines Neetu Singh and Shabana Azmi play small time crooks. This being a Hindi movie that too a Manmohan Desai movie, such twains are bound to meet and fall in love after initial chhed chhad etc.

I did not watch any movies from 1972 and 1977 and this movie, like many great movies of my formative years fell in this period. I watched this movie much later in 1980s during summer vacations. Watching the movie nearly one decade later in second or third run of the movie was not th same as it would have been if the movie was released in 1977.

This song, nevetheless is a good song to listen to, and it was a popular song of its time.

So, here is a song from a movie released in 1977 which watched by me in 1984, whose first song was covered in the blog on 7 february 2009 and whose fourth song is being covered in the blog on 7 february 2019. How time seems to have flown as hypersonic speed !


Song-Aaiye shauq se kahiye(Parvarish)(1977) Singers- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

hmm mm mm
hmm hmm
hmm mm mm

jo yoon hai to teri baanhon mein jeena sabse behtar hai

ye sach hai sabse behtar hai

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 79 # Remembering Director Tapan Sinha – His movies #
——————————————————————————————————————–

In our film industry we have many personalities who have left indelible mark of their craftsmanship and genius through their contribution to the Indian film Industry.

Some of them achieved this in spite of producing or directing very few films. Such few personalities have immortalized themselves in the history of Indian Cinema through their works.

Today we pay our tributes to one such personality – one of the most prominent directors Shri.Tapan Sinha. He can be considered to be in the leagues of Shri.Satyajit Ray, Shri.Mrinal Sen, and Shri.Ritwik Ghatak. He was conferred with the highest honors for films the ‘Dadasaheb Phalke’ award in 2006.

Today 15th January 2019 is the tenth ‘Remembrance Day’ of Tapan Sinha (02.10.1924 – 15.01.2009).

The ‘nuances of life reality’ in his works and the ‘greatness of his efforts’ behind the presentations on ‘screen’ as we get to watch, cannot be detailed in one article here.

To put in short about him, I am reproducing below the text mentioned in the blurb on the jacket of the VCD (of film ‘Safed Haathi -1977).

“He is arguably the most uncompromising film maker outside the orbit of parallel cinema. And his awe-inspiring body of work can possibly be matched by only a – Mrinal Sen or a Satyajit Ray. He is the grand old man of cinema– Tapan Sinha.

His filmography presents an amazing variety of subjects. Even when the Director has profusely entertained the audience, he has done it every time, with a new yarn promising new experiences for the filmgoers. And these have not been ordinary crowd-pleasers nor have they seemed mired in familiar formulas. A veritable commander of the box-office, Tapan Sinha has offered many super hit films in succession – namely- ‘Hatey Bazaare’, ‘Aapnjan’, ‘Ekhani’, ‘Safed Haathi’ etc creating a record that is unsurpassed even today.

Yet in each of these films, adapted faithfully from widely read literary works and neatly told, a serious observer may discover the creative burst that raises a popular work to an artistic level. This nonchalant mastery of spinning pleasurable surprises right on the screen has been discernible in all his films, even including his work containing raw realities of life like ‘Apanjan’ or ‘Raja’.

His major works have been in Bangla films and in Hindi he has produced/directed – ‘Zindagi-Zindagi-1972’, ‘Sagina-1974’, ‘Safed Haathi-1977’, ‘Aadmi aur Aurat-1982’ and ‘Aaj Ka Robinhood-1987’, and the last one ‘Anokha Moti-2000’.
(Ref wiki page on Tapan Sinha)

Out of the above movies I remember to have watched ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut’ and ‘Safed Haathi’ on ‘doordarshan’.
On our blog we have already covered all songs from the film ‘Sagina-1974’ and ‘Zindagi-Zindagi-1972’.

Today we introduce a song from the film ‘Safed Haathi-1976’ which was directed by Tapan Sinha, and this movie ‘Safed Haathi-1976’ make its debut on the blog today.

‘Safed Haathi-1977’ (alias ‘White Elephant’) was directed by Tapan Sinha. It was a ‘Neelkamal Movies, Calcutta’ presentation.
It was produced by R.A. Jalan and Pratap Agarwal.

Subodh Roy was the editor of this movie. Its dialogues were written by Hridayesh Pandey.
Tapan Sinha who directed this movie had also written the story and screenplay of this movie.

The film had Shatrughan Sinha (in special appearance), Vijay Arora, Sadhu Mehar, Mala Jaggi, Gayatri, Kalyan Chatterjee, Bhaskar Choudhary, Vishwa Guha Thakurta, Reena Barua and Utpal Dutt as its cast. Child artist Ashwani makes a debut in this movie.

Music of this film was composed by Ravindra Jain who also wrote the lyrics of the four songs in this film. Yesudas, Hemlata, Ravindra Jain, Nirmala Mishra gave their voices to the songs in this film.

This movie was passed by Censor board on 18.10.1977.

(While giving the details of this movie HFGK Vol-V makes a note that from the ‘booklet’ of this movie it comes to light that it was earlier titled as ‘Puraskar’ (The Prize))

As mentioned above, I had watched this movie earlier on ‘Doordarshan’ (may be sometime around 1991-92) and I remember how thrilled I was then and I always like to watch movies that have some ‘message’ in it and watching a movie which has ‘elephant’ as a ‘central character’ always fascinates me.
In this movie too watching ‘Airaavat’ or the ‘white elephant’ whenever he appears on the screen is very very interesting and touching.

So, few years back I had bought the VCD of this movie so that I can watch it again with my family at home. I always thought that such movies should be watched by all irrespective of what our age is.

I would not like to discuss more on the story of this movie since I wish that one should watch this movie and enjoy its thrill, its message and its learning. Review of this movie is available at ‘Memsaab Story’ too.

This movie was awarded National Film Award for Best Children’s Film in 1978.
It also got a ‘Special Jury Award’ in the Sixth Competitive Festival “The Child in Our Time” 1983 in Mifed, Milan, Italy.
It participated in several prestigious International film festivals where it received high acclaim and was well appreciated for its contemporary theme, preservation of flora and fauna and emphasis on qualities of chivalry, adventure and integrity of character in children.

Today we get introduced ourselves to this first song of the movie on our blog which is sung by Yesudas and written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song from this movie ‘Safed Haathi’ and pay our tributes to Late Shri.Tapan Sinha ji on the blog here today …

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 6 # Yesudas #
———————————————–———————————–——————

I recall listening to a song frequently on radio when I was around seventh or eight years old. The voice was very attractive and it had something special which captivated my young mind then.
There was one Mr. Abu who held from Kerala and was my Father’s friend (may be because of their drinking habits 🙂 residing in the same colony). He used to praise this new Singer a lot and liked his songs very much. My Father had even started learning ‘Malayalam’ from him and he had started learning how to write ‘Malayalam’ words too 🙂 in register.

As years passed and we were getting more and more memorable songs from this Singer though the quantity was not that much as compared to the other established singers in HFM.

Still, the songs coming from his voice were gaining popularity as well as it were creating a special place in the hearts of people, as the movies he was singing in were also coming from directors from special genre who were making off-beat movies then in the era already dominated by multi-starrer movies.

Nevertheless, the songs were adding to the list of ‘all time memorable songs’ and ‘nostalgia’ for peoples like me …

Today this singer turns to seventy-nine. He was born on in kerala.

I will not go into his biography in details because it has been covered in two of earlier posts on the blog.

Instead I will give below the name of the movies he sings in from 1971 since his debut in an ‘un-released’ Hindi movie, but compiled up to 1980 only, since I have the Geet Kosh for this period available with me.

Though our today’s Singer keep singing till recently in Hindi movies. But if we come to his statistics Hindi movies, we will not be able to judge his extra-ordinary talent and the ‘divine’ presence he has left by singing nearly fifty thousand songs in many national and international languages in his career spanning fifty years!!

He has been honoured with many national awards in singing as well as been conferred upon with our national civilian awards too and the list of awards is so BIG that one can only imagine his extra ordinary contribution to music as well as the society in turn…

I think, one who has grown up in the years of seventies can never ever forget this voice and those beautiful lovely songs …

Let us now start my journey through his songs …

Or let me remind you of this non-filmy song first … ‘teesta nadi si tu chanchalaa, main bhi hoon bachpan se manchalaa’

Our today’s singer is the male voice in this song (though the other voice i.e. the female voice too is ‘nostalgic’ for me … 

‘Gori teraa gaaon badaa pyaara’ – it was ruling the charts in 1976 and even after forty two years it is the same, even the new generation likes it when they get to listened to it..
But my favorite at that time was the other one from the same movie ‘Aaj se pehle ae aaj se jyadaa’ .

‘Jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan’ from ‘Chhotisi Baat-1975’ had already stolen people’s hearts and their eyes open to read and learn more about this male voice in this song …

Two years later he was in a rebellious still melodious mood when he sings ‘Kitaabon mein chhaptein hain chaahat ke kisse’

Then who will ever forget ‘sunayna sunayna’ .

The same year he was praising his beloved with ‘chaand jaise mukhde pe’.

However, the one close to my heart and growing every time for all these years is ‘tere bina soona more man ka mandir aa re aa re aa’

A year before in 1978 his ‘dil ke tukde tukde kar ke muskuraa ke chal diye’, was also keep us mesmerised (but I was not liking much then, till I became a fully grown up adult 🙂 )

And as the years passed this list also keep adding on and on …

‘ka karu sajni ee’
‘kahaan se aaye badraa’
‘madhuban Khushboo deta hai’
‘maana ho tum behad haseen’

From the early eighties I like;

‘beeti huyi raat ki sunaati hai kahaani’

‘dheere dheere subah huyi’

I can keep listing many many of his favourites of mine but I have to stop …
And as I was browsing his filmography, I was reminded of this lovely number … just to refresh the memories of yours too;

‘jeewan path pe ek rath ke do pahiye ban chalte jaayen’

I cannot stop without mentioning these two;

‘Shyaam rang ranga re’
And
‘Shadaj ne paaya ye vardaan’

(in HFGK Vol V I could not find the name of this UR movie ‘Tansen’ or maybe I have missed it…)

Then I remember I had specially brought his ‘non-filmy’ album ‘Sitaaron mein tu hi’ in 2000-2001 (when I was in Bareilly. I do not have cassette with me to mention more about it here)

But I have to stop here and presenting this article in this series a little differently I will leave you with the list of movies he sung from 1971 to 1980;

Other than this he has sung in many languages (national and international) and that way the ‘madhuban’ of his ‘gaayaki’ will always be remain blossomed all over and let the ‘Madhuban’ of his songs and those unforgettable memories be with us forever till we are here and for the coming generations too- unki gaayki ka ye Madhur-sumadhur-mehakta huaa madhuban hamesha geeton se chhalakta rahega’

Kattassery Joseph Yesudas” or Yesudas as we fondly know him …
(born on 10th January’ 1940)

Bas naam hi kaafi hai!!! Is naam ke ‘parimandal’ mein hi ‘swarg’ hai …

“Pyaare panchhi baahon mein
Gaati koyal raahon mein
Dharti pe yahi to khushi hai
Apni duniya mein aansoo bhi nahin hai”

***

‘Safed Jhoothh’ was directed by Basu Chatterjee for ‘Matrichhaaya, Bombay’. (this was the first movie by ‘Matrichhaaya’). Basu Chatterjee also wrote the Screenplay and dialogues of this movie.
It was presented by Raj Rajpal. It was produced by Asim Kumar.

It had Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Mitthu Mukherji, Deven Verma, Vidya Sinha, Manik Dutt, Abu Shivani, Amol Sen, Khalid Roy, Devraj Sinha, Prabir Roy, Somnath Pardesi, Pradeep Mukherji, Milan Mukherji, Vinay Chhibbar, Arup Ganguly, Umesh Kaalbag and many others.

This movie introduced new discovery Renuka.
Pradeep Kumar and Amol Palekar makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Samresh Basu. Editing of this movie was done by V.N. Mayekar.

Music of this film was composed by Shyamal Mitra. And all the four songs in this movie were penned by lyricist Yogesh.
Asha Bhonsle, Shyamal Mitra and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Yesudas and the movie ‘Safed Jhoothh’ is making a debut on this blog with this lovely song …

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1977.

Let us enjoy this song wishing Yesudas ji a very very happy birthday (albeit a day later) and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Lyrics for this song were sent by Peevesie’s Mom ji and I remember many times in her comments she mentions that ‘how the die-hard fans’ can forget an anniversary of their beloved actor/actress or Singer, so … yes Yesudas fans can never forget this nostalgic gem 😊

Thank you, Peevesie’s Mom ji!!!

Going by the association of Yesudas with the movies of Basu Chatterjee, I think, this song perfectly fits for this presentation here …

(And I must thank both of our editors who patiently waited for my sending of this article to them. It took time for me to compile the filmography going through each page of HFGK except the appendices and corrigendum. I cannot claim that the list given by me is exhaustive and corrections/suggestions are most welcome.

‘Zid na karo’ aisa khayaal to aaya, but since I had planned that for this article on Yesudas ji I will at least try to give the filmography of his songs from 1971 to 1980, so I have tried my best…)

(note – I have noted the lyrics as per the movie version + audio version)

Song-Neele ambar ke taley (Safed Jhhooothh)(1977)Singer-Yesudas, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Shyamal Mitra

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie’s Mom)

Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Har ghadi din rainaa aa aa
Chain ab aaye naa
Man kahe mera saathi ee ee
Ab kahin jaaye naa
Ye milan mein khoyi
Ab naa shaam dhaley ae ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
do yahaan saathhi miley
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Zindagi mein aise ae ae ae
Din kabhi aate hain
Rasmon ke bandhan mein ae ae
Meet bandh jaate hain
Phir mehak uthhte hain
Tan ke phool khile ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

नीले अम्बर के तले ए

छलके छलके अरमान दिल के

हर घडी दिन रैना आ आ
चैन अब आये ना
मन कहे मेरा साथी ई ई
अब कहीं जाए ना
ये मिलन में खोयी ई
अब ना शाम ढले ए ए ए
नीले अम्बर के तले ए
दो यहाँ साथी मिले ए
छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले

ज़िन्दगी में ऐसे ए ए ए
दिन कभी आते हैं
रस्मों के बंधन में ए ए
मीत बंध जाते हैं
फिर महक उठते हैं
तन के फूल खिले ए ए ए
नीले अम्बर के तले ए
दो यहाँ साथी मिले ए
छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले ए

Blog Day : 3828 Post No. : 14833

Today’s song is from film Hum kisi se kam nahin-77, made under the banner of Nasir Hussain films.

This is the 3rd consecutive song from the 70s that I am discussing. Do not wonder whether I have shifted sides- from writing on films of 30s and 40s to the 70s. Possibly, for the time being, this is the last one from this period. Actually, I have nothing against the musical or film aspect of the period 70s and beyond. It is only that, mostly they are not of my likings. Of course, I have always said that , ” Everything that was made before 70s was not all good, as much as everything made after 70s was not bad either.”

Good or bad depends upon the personal perceptions, because these are opinions. If you measure them on a scale- like say-durability, then it is measurable and no one can deny the durability quotient of old songs vis-a- vis songs after 70s. A lot can be said on this issue, but not today and not here. Anyway, to each his own !

Why do people like a movie ? If the correct answer was known to anybody, he would be a Trillionnaire in no time ! However, when this question is asked to a common man on the street, the answers one would get would be 1. Story is good. 2. Acting is good. 3. Music is good. 4. I like this Hero/Heroine and many such explanations. My observation is that Music and Songs is one major reason for a movie to be popular and successful. There are many examples like Albela-51, Baiju Bawra-52, Anarkali-53, almost all films of Saigal, most Noorjehan and Suraiya films and most films made by Producer, Director and Writer Nasir Hussain.

Nasir Hussain probably had received from God, the formula for successful films-for a short term use. Out of his 13 films, first 10 were hit films- primarily due to Romance and excellent music. It is said that being a script and story writer himself he used one story for all his films-with some variations, of course- and the time he changed the story his films became a flop. Shammi kapoor, whose sinking career took up turn because of the Nasir Hussain film ” Tumsa nahin dekha”-57, had once said, ” we have heard stories of Marwadis coming here with just one Lota and building empires. Here was a man who used one story for his films for 30 years and succeeded !”

Mohammed Nasir Hussain Khan aka Nasir Hussain was born on 2-2-1931 ( wiki says it is 16-11-1926) in Bhopal.His family was related to Maulana Abul Kalam Azaad. While studying in Lucknow University, he wrote several dramas for A.I.R., Lucknow. He even got First prize for 2 consecutive years in the University writing competition .( one of these stories were used to make film ‘ Baharon ke Sapne’). In 1948, he came to Bombay and joined Filmistan.

His first story was for film Shabnam-49, jointly with Qamar Jalalabadi. Independently he wrote story/screenplay/dialogues for Shabistan-51, Anarkali-53, Shart-54, Munimji-55 and Paying Guest-57. Then he wrote Tumsa Nahin Dekha and insisted to direct the film himself. Tolaram Jalan, the owner of Filmistan was not ready to give it to a New director, but when NH threatened to quit, he relented unwillingly but cut the film’s budget. Nasir took Shammi Kapoor ( who had given 9 flops in a row) and new comer Ameeta and made the low budget film Tumsa Nahin Dekha-57.

When Tolaram Jalan saw the film, he was not happy at all,but the film celebrated Jubilees in 30 cities in India. Nasir Hussain got Rs. 10000/- for the story and his salary for 8 months, Rs.8000/- a total of Rs 18000 for this successful film ! When his mentor Shashdhar Mukherjee left Filmistan, to start his own ‘ Filmalaya Studios’, Nasir also left. For this new company. he made Dil Deke Dekho- 59, introducing Asha parekh as New Heroine. The film was a Hit , but he got only Rs. 25000- . Nasir decided that only his own company can give him more money.

With just Rs. 10,000/- in pocket he established his own Nasir Hussain Films Ltd. and made ‘ Jab pyar kisise hota hai-61. Another Hit. Then he made Phir wohi dil laya hoon-63, Teesri manzil-66. Baharon ke sapne-67, Pyar ka Mausam-69, Carvan-71, Yadon ki baraat-73 and Hum kisise kam nahin-77.

For film Teesri manzil-66, the film started with Dev Anand as the Hero. After 2 reels’ shooting, Dev had some differences and he left the film. Shammi Kapoor was roped in. The film was directed by Vijay Anand and for the first time R D Burman was taken for providing Music. Later on Nasir Hussain, Majrooh Sultanpuri and RD Burman collaborated for another 5 films.R D Burman continued till 1985, doing in all 9 films for Nasir Hussain.

After his films in 1981,84 and 85 flopped serially, Nasir Hussain stopped direction and wrote screen play and dialogues for Qayamat se Qayamat taq-88 and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar-92. His nephew Amir Khan was launched in these films. Nasir Hussain died on 13-3-2002 after a Heart attack.

Actors Asha Parekh, Rajendra Nath , Sidhu, Malika and Krishan Mehta owe their career to Nasir Hussain. Shammi Kapoor ,a struggling actor was given a new identity by him & thanks to him, Shammi Kapoor reached at the pinnacle of popularity. Even Amita became a hit property overnight by the success of Tum Sa Nahin Dekha,

While he encouraged new comers, he did not forget the veteran actors ,who had passed their prime . Late B M Vyas ,who was getting roles only in period/religious/Arabian Night movies was chosen by Nasir Hussain for an important role in main stream movie Tum Sa Nahin Dekha. Old timer Wasti ,who regaled the audiences with his natural acting in Sanjog , Rattan, Pugree made in forties and many Punjabi & Hindi movies later on , was passing through a bad phase . Nasir honored him by offering the roles of substance in Dil Deke Dekho,Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai & Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon. He rekindled the fond memories of the forties ,when he signed actors of proven caliber like Rajinder Singh, Mubarak, Kanu Roy, Raj Mehra ,Mumtaz Ali , Surendra Nath & many more . Here I’ll specifically mention the name of Nasir Khan & Bharat Bhushan ,who were passing through the most difficult phase of their lives . The benign film maker Nasir took them in his movies Yaadon Ki Baraat & Pyar Ka Mausam respectively ,just to assure them that they have not been forgotten and the industry recognizes their contribution . It is my strong belief that it was the blessings of those grateful old timer actors ,which made Nasir Hussain so prosperous and successful.

Nasir Hussain had that typical story formula in most of his films of “overhearing” ! In Tumsa Nahi Dekha, Pran overhears about Shammi Kapoor arriving & after stealing Shammi Kapoor’s recommendation letter, introduces himself as Shankar (Shammi Kapoor) . In Dil Deke Dekho, JPKSHH & Pyar Ka Mausam, the heroes concerned, overhear the heroine speaking about a comedian’s arriving (mostly as a marriage candidate) & after packing the comedian back,the hero banks on the name of the comedian. In Teesri Manzil, Shammi Kapoor overhears Asha Parekh speak, that she has come there to take revenge on himself (Rocky) and implies to Asha & her friends that he is different person named Anil Kumar Sona .
Even though with this common formula in most of his films , all his movies did well at the theatre on the basis of good songs & music !

There was a letter from a reader, in Filmfare, which stated thus, ” It is not at all important to pay attention to that so-called Hindi movie critic group who always referred and called Nasir Hussain as man of the movie with Escapism themes all the time to make his movie at box office hit. Working men need to have some kind of entertainment after spending hours and hours in heaps of works and concerned chores. Naturally there grows the tendency to escape from daily reality by engaging in daydreaming, fantasy….and there comes Nasir Hussain with this magical stick plus his established style of screenplay writing and later directing evergreen chocolate hero viz. Dev Anand…rebellious Shammi Kapoor…smiling Joy Mukherjee….charming Shashi Kapoor….handsome Jeetendra….and there was all time beautiful dancing lady ever present in her gorgeous smile…Asha Parekh who worked with these heroes with her fresh enthusiasm. What else an ordinary cine goer wish to have while spending his money for a ticket at window ? Apart from main hero and heroine there were devoted character actors playing various parts . ”

The Hero of the film Hum kisise kam nahin-77 was Rishi Kapoor, born on 4-9-1952. His first entry through Mera Naam Joker-70 fetched him a Film fare award. His debut as a Hero in Bobby-73 also brought him an award from filmfare. He is one actor who is popular even after he retired from films-not fully though. A film The Body-2019, was just released last week, directed by Jitu Joseph.His son Ranbir Kapoor is carrying the Kapoor mantle very ably.

Rishi Kapoor aka Chintoo has some different records on his name. He is the only actor having had 45 different heroines with whom he was cast. He also worked with 20 New entrant Heroines in their Debut films. He was Hero to seniors like Shabana Azmi, Rekha, Rakhee and Hema ( she was launched by his father), then with Madhuri, Shridevi, Tina Munim and Raveena Tandon. He worked with Simi Garewal in film Karz-1980, after his first film Mera Naam Joker-70. Some of his New heroines were Dimple, Kajal Kiran, Bhavna Bhatt, Ashwini Bhave, Radhika, Farah, Vinita, Zeba, Divya, Naseem, Rukhsaar etc etc. He acted in 162 films and also directed 1 film-Aa ab laut chale-99. He lent his voice in 7 songs in 6 films.

Today’s song is a copy of the famous Abba song ” Mama Mia”. So be it, seeing the youthful Rishi and Kajal Kiran singing and dancing is a real treat, in this video. Enjoy….
