#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 92 # R.D. Burman – Year 1977
———————————————–———————————————

It is another important day today for all of us today (27 june 2020). Remembering the ‘genius’ Music Director Rahul Dev Burman – ‘Pancham’ on his eighty-first birth anniversary today.

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song composed by him from the movie ‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’.

I do not know how many of our readers are aware of this movie and its’ songs. There may be many, and surely most Pancham fans are aware of the movie and its songs.

However, I became aware of this movie only six years ago when I got my copy of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). Since then, I was longing to share the songs from this movie. But somehow it didn’t work out, mainly because I was unable to locate the songs of this movie.

I had never listened to the songs of this movie earlier. For that matter I had never even heard the name of this movie. This movie must have sunk badly at the box office and as a result it must have ended up becoming an obscure movie of its time.

The movie had some beautiful songs in it that were created by none other than the genius music director Rahul Dev Burman.

When I listened to the songs of this movie during the preparation of this post, I liked them very much. And I hope that our readers too will find the song enjoyable.

This is a movie of 1977. 1977 is also an important year in the history of India (socio-politically). However here on the blog we will only discuss the movies and music (of Pancham) of that year.

Some of us will readily recall the blockbuster musical hit of that year i.e. ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, which also had music by R D Burman.

Then there were other movies like ‘Kinaara’, ‘Mukti’, ‘Kitaab’, ‘Karm’ etc where the music was composed by R.D. Burman.
Then there were movies like ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Dharam Veer’, ‘Aap Ki Khaatir’, ‘Yehi Hai Zindagi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Apnaapan’, ‘Dulhan Wahi Jo Piyaa Man Bhaaye’, ‘Khoon Pasinaa’, ‘Swami’, ‘Anurodh’, etc etc… where the other music directors composed the music and the music of these movies too were very popular.

The song that ranked at number one of that year’s annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list was from the previous years’ ‘Laila Majnu’, and in 1978 it was from ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se’. The song ‘Kyaa huaa tera waadaa’ from ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’ ranked at number three in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1978.

None of the songs from today’s movie ‘Jeewan Mukt’ featured in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1977’. (or 1978).

In 1977 there were as many as ten movies where R D Burman sas the music director. Details of the representation of these movies in the blog is show here :-

10 Mukti 1977 14.02.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes/Yippeeee’ed

‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’ was directed by Sudhendu Roy for S.R. Productions, Bombay. It had Lakshmi, Parikshit Sahni, Girish Karnad, Mala Jaggi, Sudha Shivpuri, Pawan Dutt, Meena Rai, Master Gautam, Ashok Razdan, Dhanna, Asha Lata, Suresh Oberoi, Dinshaw Dazi, Shrimati Mistri and others.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had total four songs, all were solo songs sung by Asha Bhonsle. (however, on internet I came across a song sung by Kishore Kumar and it is uploaded as an ‘unreleased song from this movie- ‘Jeewan Mukt’, which needs to be checked and confirmed. HFGK doesn’t mention this song).

Lyricist Yogesh wrote the songs for this movie and music was composed by R.D. Burman.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.08.1977.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced on screen by Lakshmi. Master Gautam (I guess) is the kid seen with her. Some other artists including two playing a village cuple are also seen in the picturisation.

Let us enjoy today’s song which is said to be inspired from a ‘western song’ (guesses?).

The book ‘R.D. Burman- The Man, The Music’ also mentions one other song from this movie ‘Jeewan Mukt’ where Pancham Da had taken inspiration from the music composed by a famous ‘western group’, but then that is the ‘inspiration’ for another post. Till then let us all enjoy this song and pay our tributes to our beloved Pancham Da.

With this song ‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’ makes its debut on the blog. With this song, all released movies of 1977 that had music by R D Burman find representation on the blog. 🙂

Hullo Atuldom

Continuing from last year, next song from “Doosra Aadmi”.

Movie made a debut on this blog with kya mausam hai , the most popular song. The next song to be posted was maathe pe lagaaike bindiya.

aao manaayen jashn e muhabbat was posted last year on this date to remember Majrooh Sultanpuri on his anniversary and also to wish Rajesh Roshan on his birthday.

This not-so-popular movie of the Rishi Kapoor -Neetu Singh jodi is rather slow moving on our blog as can be seen from the fact that after two songs in 2008 the next appeared in 2019. It had six songs here is the fourth today for the same purpose as last year – remembering Majroohsaab and wishing Rajesh Roshan a happy birthday.

We, the regular HFM fans, know that the movie had Shashi Kapoor in a guest role and Rakhee, Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor were part of the love quadrangle tha formed the basis of the movie. I say quadrangle because when Rakhee sees Rishi for the first time (in the movie) she feels that her dead fiance (Shashi Kapoor) is back. At the same time a married Rishi Kapoor takes a liking to Rakhee and her independent way of living which has adverse effects on his family life. Deven Verma and Parikshit Shani played important characters in the movie.

Today we have the typical roothna-manana song sung by Kishore Kumar and Pamela Chopra. The song teaches that it takes a few stanzas by the best songwriter to pacify a upset/angry lover or wife. And she may also join you in singing a few lines towards the end of the song. I don’t think this formula works in real-life.


Song-Jaan meri roothh gayi (Doosra Aadmi)(1977) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Pamela Chopra, Lyris-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan
Both

Lyrics

jaan meri rooth gayi
jaane kyun hamse
aafat mein
aafat mein pad gayi jaan
ho ho o
jaan meri rooth gayi jaane kyun hamse
aafat mein
hey
aafat mein pad gayi jaan
arre laakh kahoon ek nahin maane kasam se
aafat mein
haaye
aafat mein pad gayi jaan
ho ho jaan meri rooth gayi re

ho o ho o ho
ban jaao shola
ya chingaari
chhodoon nahin mai baanh tumhaari
ya yeh tamaasha dekhegi duniya
ya phir maano baat hamaari
ladna bhi hai tumse sanam
milna bhi tumse
aafat mein
hey hey
aafat mein pad gayi jaan
ho ho jaan meri rooth gayi re

naak pe gussa
aankhon mein masti
thhodi garajti thhodi barasti
naak pe gussa
ankhon mein masti
thhodi garajti thhodi barasti
choom naa le koi
aisi ada pe
honthon se chup hai
aankhon se hansti
peechhe hi pad jaaye bacho
peechhe hi pad jaaye bacho aise sanam se
aafat mein
aafat mein pad gayi jaan
ho ho

lakh kahoon ek nahin mane kasam se
aafat mein

hy hey
aafat mein pad gayi jaan
ho ho
jaan meri maan gayi maan gayi jaanoo
aafat se
hoye hoye
aafat se bach gayi jaan
ho ho
jaan meri maan gayi ee re ae

“Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was directed by Lekh Tandon for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prem Kishan, Rameshwari (new find), Shyamali, Madan Puri, Ifthikhar, Shivraj, Sundar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Nandlal Sharma, Pardesi, Ratan Gauraang, Chandu Allahabadi, Jagdeep, Leela Mishra, Savita Bajaj, Piloo Wadia, Rashmi, Veena Kapoor, Shashikala, Suresh Rokde, Deepak Puri, Tajendra Gupta etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Details of the seven songs covered in the blog are :-

1 Le to aaye ho hamen sapno ke gaaon me 1118 18-April-2009

7 Ab ranjish e khushi se bahaar o khizaan se kya 15429 11-Feb-2020

The chronology of the posting of the songs makes for an interesting reading. After the start of this blog, I have been to five different places viz Jabalpur, Nagpur, Bilaspur, Izatnagar (Bareilly) and Gorakhpur, in that order. First two songs were covered during 2009 when I was in Jabalpur. The next two songs wwere covered in 2015. First of them was discussed when I was at Bilaspur. Next was discussed when I had gone to Izatnagar (Bareilly). The last three songs from the movie have been discussed while I am based at Gorakhpur. So my stay at Nagpur was the only period for the blog that did not see any song from the movie getting discussed.

I have fond memories of misusing my newfound freedom, using that to bunk college classes and watching movies. I watched this movie five times, that is how much I liked the movie. I was not alone. This movie had a longer run in Ranchi (where I was based those days ) than Sholay.

The heroine Rameshwari was the star attraction of the movie. nfortunately she could not capitalise on this dream beginning to her career and she fell by the wayside soon thereafter.

The music of the movie served as the Pied Piper that attracted me to the movie hall repeatedly.

As noted earlier, the movie had eight songs in it. All songs were nice to listen to. The songs that were discussed in the earlier days of the blog were the most popular songs from the movie.

Here is the eighth and final song from “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Hemlata. Ravondra Jain is the lyricist as well as music director. Only the audio of the song seems to be available online. I had watched the movie and I recall this dukhiyaari song being lip synced by Rameshwari in the movie. So this song was very much there in the movie.

With this song, “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. The movie thus gets YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Shyama ho Shyama (Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

‘Shatranj Ke Khilaadi’ (1977) was Satyajit Ray’s first and only Hindi feature film which was based on a short-story by the same name written by Munshi Premchand. The film was produced by Suresh Jindal under the banner of Devki Chitra. From the low budget black and white Bangla films, Satyajit Ray charted his way into high budget Hindi colour film with multi-star cast with Mumbai and Kolkata based actors and also actors from the West. The actors included Sanjeev Kumar, Saeed Jaffrey, Amjad Khan, Shabana Azmi, Farida Jalal, Victor Bannerji, Richard Attenborough, Tom Alter, Barry John, Farooque Shaikh, David Abraham, Veena etc.

After successfully producing his first Hindi film ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), Producer, Suresh Jindal in a chance meeting with Satyajit Ray sometime in 1974 requested him to direct for him a Hindi film, or an English film. If not, he is prepared to produce a Bengali film for him to direct. Satyajit Ray’s reaction to his request was positive as he said that he himself was thinking of directing a Hindi film. This opened their partnership of making ‘Shatranj Ke Khilaadi’ (1977).

From 1974 to 1976, the time was spent mostly on a detailed research on the subject including meetings with scholars in India and the UK. Both Satyajit Ray and Suresh Jindal visited various places in India and abroad which had connection with the story of the film for checking the authenticity of the historical events and also for the selection of authentic props. The visits included havelis of Lucknow and Jaipur, thakur baris of North Calcutta (Kolkata), museums and libraries of Hyderabad and London etc. The shooting of the film was delayed by few months due to non-availability of Sanjeev Kumar for health reasons. The film’s shooting finally commenced in December 1976 and wound up by June 1977. For details about the making of this film, one can read the book ‘My Adventures with Satyajit Ray : The Making of Shatranj Ke Khiladi’ by Suresh Jindal (Harper Collins, 2017).

I had covered in detail the story of the film while discussing one of the songs from the film, Kaanha main tose haari. Just to recapitulate in short, the story is set in the background of the impending take over of Awadh by the British troops as they feel that the Nawab of Awadh, Wajid Ali Shah is busier with singing, dancing and poetry reciting sessions than governing his kingdom. On the other hand, two of the aristocrats of Nawab are unmindful of what is in store for Awadh and of their families, as they are addicted to playing chess. At the end of film, Satyajit Roy has highlighted situational irony in which while Nawab Wajid Ali Shah, in order to avoid bloodshed, abdicates Awadh to Britishers, the chess playing aristocrats continue to play chess at a far-off place from their houses in order to avoid calls from Nawab to fight the Britisher troops. In the event, a bloody fight ensues between the two on a trivial chess move in which they are prepared to kill each other.

The film had 5 songs of which two songs have been covered in the Blog. Of the remaining 3 songs, 2 songs are partially used in the film although the record versions of them are longer. The remaining one song ‘hindola jhoole shyam’ which I am presenting here was deleted from the film before its the release. The song is rendered by Calcutta Youth Choir (as a chorus) which is set to music by Satyajit Ray. The lyrics are written by Wajid Ali Shah. Incidentally, Calcutta Youth Choir was set in 1958 by Ruma Guha Thakurta along with Salil Chowdhury and Satyajit Ray.

The long prelude and the last interlude music with short taraana would indicate that this song has been written for Kathak dance performance or for a musical play on Krishna. The verses were written by Nawab Wajid Ali Shah. The last stanza has some Urdu words. Some of the Urdu poets like Nazeer Akbaradbadi and Hasrat Mohani have written many poems in praise of the beauty of Lord Krishna and on his divine love for Radha in the mixed language of Urdu and Awadhi/Brij.

I was eager to know as to where this deleted song would have appeared in the film. I had read that Nawab Wajid Ali Shah had written plays about Lord Krishna and his raasleela with Radha in which, sometime he himself used to perform as Krishna. With this background, I guess this song would have fitted in the beginning of the film, during which a short Kathak dance is being performed by Wajid Ali Shah (Amjad Khan) as Lord Krishan along with Radha and other dancers.

The song is not only pleasing to ears but also soothing to the mind.

“Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was directed by Lekh Tandon for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prem Kishan, Rameshwari (new find), Shyamali, Madan Puri, Ifthikhar, Shivraj, Sundar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Nandlal Sharma, Pardesi, Ratan Gauraang, Chandu Allahabadi, Jagdeep, Leela Mishra, Savita Bajaj, Piloo Wadia, Rashmi, Veena Kapoor, Shashikala, Suresh Rokde, Deepak Puri, Tajendra Gupta etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past.

I have fond memories of watching this movie by bunking my college classes. 🙂 Not once but five times. That is how much I liked this movie after I watched it the first time. 🙂

Rameshwari, debutant leading lady was the biggest reason for the successt of the movie. This remained her first and last hit as a leading lady. Today few moviegoers remember her but those days she was a big name and she took exception when she was mistaken for Rekha, who was a nobody in comparison. 🙂

Songs of “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) played a big role in attracting moviegoers to the movie halls. All songs were nice to listen to.

Here is the seventh song from “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) to appear in the blog. It is sung by Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist and composer.

The song is picturised as a family get together song where Rameshwari, playing Kammo is asked to sing a song. Like an aadarsh Bhartiya naari that she portrays in the movie, she of course sings nice songs that never fails to wins over her audience. 🙂


Song-Ab ranjish e khushi se bahaar o khizaan se kya (Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Hemlata, Ravindra Jain, Ravindra Jain

ab ranjish e khushi se
bahaar o khizaan se kya aa

unka khayaal unki talab unki aarzoo u
unka khayaal unki talab unki aarzoo u
jis dil mein ho woh maange kisi meharbaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

hamne charaag rakh diya toofaan ke saamne ae
hamne charaag rakh diya toofaan ke saamne ae
peechhe hatega ishq kisi imtihaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

koyi chale chale na chale
ham to chal pade ae
koyi chale chale na chale
ham to chal pade ae
manzil ki jisko dhun ho
usey kaarvaan se kya aa
manzil ki jisko dhun ho

ye baat sochne ki hai
wo hoke meharbaan aan
yeh baat sochne ki hai
wo hoke meharbaan aan
poochhenge haal e dil to
kahenge jubaan se kya aa
mahv e khayaal yaar hain
ham ko jhaan se kya
mahv e khayaal yaar hain

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-20) – Song No. 1
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this first post under the ‘Blog 10-Year Challenge’ in this year “2020”, where we will be going back to the movies represented on the blog in the year “2010”.

Today we begin our journey in this year with a not-so-popular but yet a nice hummable song from the movie ‘Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977’. I had planned the post in the month of December’2019 itself when I had browsed for the movies represented in the month of January’2010.

However, I had not selected the song for the post then. The song that readily came to my mind was the ‘title song’ of this movie and since it had not been posted I thought I would present this one. But when I listened to the other song remaining from this movie, I like it and presenting the same today, since it also talks of a ‘journey’ and a ‘continuing journey’ without reaching the ‘destination’.😊

We, on the blog, have already entered in the thirteenth ‘calendar year’ for the blog since its inception in 2008, and we have still a long way to go and many new ‘topics’ to be explored and this song perfectly sets the tune for another entertaining musical year ahead …

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier;

Song Posted on
mashrique-se-jo-nikle-maghrib-mein-kho-gaye 07.01.2010
I-am-in-love-you-are-in-love 18.07.2013
mere-gorey-gaalon-ka 20.03.2014

This movie had total five songs in it and the two remaining songs to be posted are;
‘nahin dekha kabhi pehle … main aashiq hoon bahaaron ka’
‘tera dil kya kehta hai mera dil to ye kehta hai’

(and if the listing of songs given in HFGK Vol V is in correct order of appearance of the songs in this movie, the above two songs remaining are the first and the last song appearing in this movie).

Looking back ten years back i.e. on 07.10.2010 the following two movies were represented on the blog ten years back (in ascending order of presentation).

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Gudiya hamse roothi rahogi Dosti-1964 All songs covered on the blog
Mashrique se jo aaye … Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977 03 of 05 songs posted so far

“Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977” was directed by J. Omprakash for ‘Shiv Kala Mandir’, Bombay. S.K. Chand was its Chief Assistant Director.

“Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka-1977” was produced by K.K. Talwar and Raj Bathija. It had Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Danny Dengongpa with Asrani and Om Prakash. Sulochana makes a special appearance in this movie. Its supporting cast includes Rehman, Preeti Ganguly, Pinchoo Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Julie and Nadira.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Ram Kelkar. Its dialogues were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Pratap Dave and Prakash Dave.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.11.1977.

This movie had total five songs in it and only Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar gave their voices to the songs in this movie where Lata Mangeshkar had one solo song, Kishore Kumar had three solo songs and there was only one duet sung by them.

Lyrics for all the five songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to appear on the blog.

I think that, other than the title song of this movie and the song ‘I am in love’, the other songs were not very much popular, though I find the today’s song a nice hummable and an enjoying one. (also, I do not remember to have listened to the today’s song earlier before taking it for the presentation in this post).

I have not watched this movie so I cannot say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …

Let us now enjoy this song …

(The songs is picturized on Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman and many others are seen in the picturization of this song which is picturized on foreign locations).

“Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was directed by Lekh Tandon for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prem Kishan, Rameshwari (new find), Shyamali, Madan Puri, Ifthikhar, Shivraj, Sundar, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Nandlal Sharma, Pardesi, Ratan Gauraang, Chandu Allahabadi, Jagdeep, Leela Mishra, Savita Bajaj, Piloo Wadia, Rashmi, Veena Kapoor, Shashikala, Suresh Rokde, Deepak Puri, Tajendra Gupta etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

I have written many things about this movie while discussing the previous songs. This was a movie whose name initially put me off. But when I found this movie going on and on and refusing to get replaces from the movie hall where it was being shown, then I decided to watch it. And I fel in love with this movie. So much so that I watched the movie again and again- for a total of five times.

Rameshwari the new find was the person behind the success of this movie. This movie no longer remained just a movie. Moviewatchers identified with Rameshwari and fell in love with her. That is the kind of magic her maiden appearance created at the box office.

It was the first time that I watched a Rajshree Productions movie. With my expectations raised sky high, I went to watch the next Rajshree Productions movie called “Paheli”(1977) and it turned out to be a big let down as far as I was concerned.

And when I watched the next Rameshwari movie, called “Iqraar” (1979), this movie as well as Rameshwari turned out to be huge disappointment.

Songs of “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) were a big reason for the success of the movie. All songs were nice to listen to.

Here is the sixth song from “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) to appear in the blog. It is sung by Hemlata whose voice sounded sweet, divine and inspired when singing uner the baton of Ravindra Jain. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist and composer.

THe movie does not seem to be available online. The song was picturised on Rameshwari.


Song-Jahaan prem ka paawan diyara jare (Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye)(1977) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
ho o ho ho
ho o o o ho
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare
jahaan bolen bachan sab neeh bhare
usi angna mein
usi dvaare pe
beete hamra bhi jeevan raam kare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

kaun nadi ki ham hain lahar
kaho aake mila re kinaara
jog likhe bin sambhav naahin
aisa milan hamaara
in charnon se ab ghar na pare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

jis ka naahin apna koi
jo keh de use apna re
us ki karuna us ki daya ka
utre na karaj utaare
jiya chaahe wahin jiyen wahin pe maren
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae
jahaan bolen bachan sab neeh bhare
usi angna mein
usi dvaare pe
beete hamra bhi
jeevan raam kare
jahaan prem ka paavan diyara jare ae ae ho

“Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) an archtypically Manmohan Desai directed movie, reminds me of an indulgent parent who, when he comes back home to his little ones brings them lots and lot of goodies that the kids were so eagerly looking forward to. The kids just would not have enough of the goodies.

The movie, a multistarrer, which was a new fashion in India, after the success of “Sholay”(1975), boasted a who is who of stars of those days- Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Shabana azmi, Neetu Singh were the three romantic pairs. Pran and Nirupa Roy play the parents. Villains are Jeewan, Ranjeet, Yusuf Khan. Other characters in the movie include Mukri, Nazeer Hussain, Kamal Kapoor, Pratima Devi etc. Even Helen makes a cameo appearance.

Most people who are into HFM have already watched this movie. That too multiple times. If you are an Indian, then this movie must have influences you in one way or the other. This movie has scenes, dialogues, coincidences etc that have become stuff of legends. They also are constant source of jokes, memes, amusing anecdotes etc.

This movie had seven songs. Six songs from this movie have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been discussed in the past :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 My name is Anthony Gonsalves 3040 28-Sep-10
2 Parda hai parda 9189 23-Dec-13
3 Hamko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen 11111 9-May-15
4 Anhoni ko honi kar de honi ko anhoni 11963 31-Mar-16
4 Khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin 14896 26-Feb-19
5 Shirdi waale Saibaba aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali 15199 4-Sep-19

The discussions of these songs in the movie were no less fun than the fun that we may have had while watching this movie.

This song made its debut in the blog with the song My name is Anthony Gonsalves . The date was 29 september 2010. It was a guest post by a guest poster who had discovered the blog just a few months ago. Santosh Ojha, the contributor, was a diehard Amitabh Bachchan fan and he had watched this movie in Nagpur during its first run just days before his class X examination, not once but thrice !

His observations on the movie scenes and story, alongwith his school day experiences, makes this writeup a great fun to read.
In fact, this song itself has an amusing beginning:

You see the whole country of this system
is juxtapositioned by the hemoglobin in the atmosphere ,
because you are a sophisticated rhetorician
intoxicated by the exuberance of your own verbosity

🙂

The next song was covered three years later in 2013. This too was a guest post, and it was by Peevesie’s mom, who may have watched this movie a few million times.

The third song writeup from this movie turned out to be a very very special occasion for the blog. This song was the only song in history that has the voices of Mukesh, Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata together. This song was the post number 11111 for the blog and it was written by our own Sudhir Jee. It was a century post for him as well as for all the abovementioned legendary singer. It was a century post for Laxmikant Pyarelal as well.

Four more songs have been covered after that. Writeup for these songs were by Peevesie’s mom. Four writeups out of six ! It just shown how much the songs of this movie mean to her !

What is the only song left to be covered ? It is yet another fun song viz “Tayyab Ali Pyaar ka dushman hay haay”. This song is sung by Rafi and chorus, with a few words by Mukri. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a song where Akbar (Rishi Kapoor) is seen heckling Tayyab Ali (Mukri), the father of Salma (Neetu Singh), for coming in the way of their love.

This song, like the other songs of this movie, is best enjoyed while watching the movie in a movie hall in 1970s. The response of the public, especially the coin throwing front staller junta (appropriately names chawanni chaap janta 🙂 ) is an experience that can no longer be savoured. This experience has become extinct with time.

Incidentally, unlike Santosh Ojha, I myself had not watched this movie during its first run. My movie watching spree began in 1978, and I watched this movie during its second run, which is not the same as watching it during its maiden run, of course.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

We are into September. The month has begun with on an auspicious note with the arrival of the elephant-headed god, Lord Ganesh or Gajanan or Vighneshwar or Ekdanta or Vinayak or Ganpati- different names for the same god. For which Atulji had posted a “Ganpati Bappa Morya” song. The birthday list for September began with the ‘pouring out of a true fan’s feelings for his idol post’ on Sadhana by Sudhirji.

Here is my post to wish my favourite actor on turning a year older. He has been out of the country for the last year undergoing treatment for the dreaded C. Though out of the country he has been in public eye with constant reports of how he is recovering and that he is expected back in the country in the not-so-distant future. I am wishing Rishi Raj Kapoor on his 67th birthday. May he return to the pink of health and continue what he does best – give us lots of entertaining movies like his last few – “Mulk” (2018) directed by Anubhav Sinha which was poles apart from his “102 Not Out” directed by Umesh Shukla. He played varied characters in “Kapoor and Sons” (2016), “Besharam” (2013), “Patiala House” (2011), “Agneepath” (2012), “Do Dooni Char” (2010), “Student of the year” (2012), – post his decision in 1999 to stop trying to play the romantic lead we have seen Chintu (as his is fondly called) in different avatars. He must be the only actor from the 70s and 80s (other than Amitabh of course) to be considered for playing near-central characters which are not necessarily young.

Now for a few words on today’s song

It is from a 42-year-old movie. It has been on the air-waves and all the music channels of television ever since. And it falls right in the category of “how come this song was not posted earlier?”. But then we will find many of Chintu’s songs eligible for this category and our blog will always have fodder for posting :). The last time I heard this on radio was, may be last week, when I was driving to the airport in Mumbai (my brother was dropping me) or driving home from the airport with my son after touch down at Bangalore (that means twice on the same day). That is how frequently the song gets played. Then on entering the house I found my husband surfing channels and again this song. And next day morning doordarshan played it on their weekly musical “Rangoli”. So that made it 4 times in 24 hours and am I complaining about the number of repeats? No, not at all!! Why? Because I like the elements that the maker of the movie has put into the song. In fact, the maker is known for putting that kind of elements in the whole movie and almost all his movies.

Here I am talking of Shri Manmohan Desai and his habit of showing us incredible, illogical and unbelievable things in his movies, and how the audiences have lapped those up with eyes closed. Remember the blood donation scene in “Amar Akbar Anthony”? The song sequence in “Mard” has a tiger escorting the mother towards a boat so that she can cross to the other bank where her son is singing in the temple. Unforgettable.

Today’s song has the eternal mother – Nirupa Roy – escaping from the clutches of Jeevan and Ranjeet (they were a team in the 70s). She is shown running towards an open-air temple where we have Chintu singing a qawwali in praise of Sai Baba. The mother comes in crawling (tired after all the running and falls that she has had enroute) moves slowly towards the Baba’s idol unseen by the devotees present in the temple. Just as Chintu sings the line – “tu bichhadon ko milaaye, bujhe deepak jalaaye” we see two tiny specks of jyot (light of the diyas) emerge from the Baba’s eyes and enter the lady’s eyes – here I must mention that the lady is blind too, a result of an accident at the start of the movie. And now she can see three kids beckoning her – on the Baba’s smiling face. Such chamatkaars (magical happening) used to be Manmohan Desai’s forte. The song or qawwali comes to a close and she declares to whoever is ready to hear that “ab mein dekh sakti hoon” (I have my vision back); I pity all the eye doctors of that time, I am sure they would have prayed to Baba that they don’t go out of business. 🙂

So today on the occasion of Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor’s birthday let us wish him health and happiness through this chamatkaari song that was written by Anand Bakshi, sung by Mohd. Rafi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Incidentally 3rd September was the 80th birthday of Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma – Pyarelal of the music director duo Laxmi-Pyare. Let us wish him too health and happiness.

usse toone sambhaala

tu bichhdon ko milaaye
bujhe deepak jalaaye
tu bichhado ko milaaye
bujhe deepak jalaaye
tu bichhdo ko milaaye
bujhe deepak jalaaye

ye gham ki raatein
raatein ye kaali
inko bana de id aur diwaali
shirdi waale sai baba
aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali

lab pe duaayen
ankhon mein aansoon
dil mein ummeedein par jholi khaali
shirdi vaale sai baba
aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali
shirdi vaale
(shirdi waale)
sai baba (sai baba)
aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali
shirdi vaale
(shirdi walein)
sai baba (sai baba)
aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali
