Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-8 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)
—————————————————————————————————–

In this series ‘Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors’ today we have discussed Sahir Ludjainvi’s collaboration with Music directors upto ‘seven movies’. After seven-movies collaborations we move to double figures. Today’s music director with Sahir is N. Datta.

If we look at the total number of songs written by Sahir i.e.,717 as per HFGK and the total number of songs up to ‘seven-movie collaboration’ which is 347 songs from movies, which gives us 48% songs from these collaborations. (Out of these 347 songs 328 songs have already been posted on the blog.)

After this we have only three music directors left to be discussed. I am sure everybody is aware of these three ‘great’ collaborations though the very old and first one ended abruptly after ‘Pyaasa-1957’ i.e., Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration.

Today we look into one of these ‘three’ great collaborations of Sahir and that is with music director N. Datta.

This fabulous collaboration created many memorable songs gems and gave us many unforgettable gems in Hindi Film Music history.

Sahir Ludhianvi and N. Datta collaborated in ‘seventeen’ movies including one song for one ‘un-released’ movie.

Here is the details of their movies together;

Total 103 108 109

Sahir Ludhianvi and N. Datta collaborated in ‘seventeen’ movies (including one un-released movie) and out of 717 songs as per HFGK the number of songs Sahir-N. Datta collaboration had given us 108 songs i.e., 15% of total number of songs.

If we go through the list of movies (as given above), we have two movies yet to be covered with all of their songs. These two movies are ‘Dilli Ka Daada-1962’ and ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.
For ‘Dilli Ka Daada-1962’ only one Sahir song is pending and I guess this song is yet not available and/or difficult to find. So, we move to the next movie which is ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.

‘Chehre Pe Chehraa-1980’ was directed by Raj Tilak, for ‘Tilak Movies, Bombay’.

Raj Tilak was also the producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Vinod Mehra, Sulakshana Pandit, Amol Palekar, Rajani Sharma, Shree Ram Lagoo, Iftekhar, Shammi, Suresh Chatwal, Kumar Aditya, Prem Sagar and others.

Shatrughan Sinha and Amjad Khan make special appearances in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Raj Marbrose and dialogues were written by Kadar Khan. Editing of this movie was done by Madhu Sinhaa.

This movie is said to be based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘Dr. Jeykll & Mr. Hyde’ and it was passed by Censor Board on 21.05.1980 with restricted viewing certificate (i.e., ‘A’).

This movie had six songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by N. Datta. Background music for this movie was given by Salil Chaudhary.

Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Sulakshana Pandit had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) following is the list of songs of this movie;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01) Aa aa aa… ye raat nek raat hai Manna Dey, chorus
02) Jaam, le jaam, pakad jaam Asha Bhonsle

04) Main hoon pari, adaaon bhari Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05) Tumse kehnaa hai ki dushwaar Sulakshana Pandit
06) Aa kuchh karen is haseen raat mein Dilraj Kaur, chorus

Let us now enjoy today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced on screen by Rekha. This is a club-dance number where we can see many other artists and Sanjeev Kumar makes his entry towards the end of the performance …

Let us have a look at the following table where after including the ‘Sahir-N. Dutta’ collaboration (today’s song not included) we get the following statistics so far;

We have been discussing movies where one song was posted long ago and it took ages before the second song was posted on the blog. The ‘ten-year challenge’ gives us opportunities for posting songs of such movies which have been on the blog and running well 😊, and also movies which took almost twelve years to get all their songs covered on the blog after their debut. (Latest case being the movie ‘Warrant-1975’ which was ‘Yippeeee’ed’ recently. The first song of ‘Warrant-1975’ was posted on the blog in September’2008).

Then there are movies whose songs get posted on ‘regular intervals’ like ‘Olympic’ games or ‘world cup cricket’ 😊

Today we are presenting a song from a movie where the earlier songs appeared on the blog at ‘regular interval’ of ‘four years’. This movie is ‘The Burning Train-1980’.

It debuted on the blog with the famous ‘qawwali’ Pal do pal ka saath hamaaraa which was posted on 08.12.2008.
Then the second this movie was posted on 17.10.2012 – Teri hai zameen tera aasmaan .
Third song got posted on 08.12.2016 which wasWaada, haan jee waada, jab tak amber par taare….

Incidentally the last post of 08.12.2016 was also presented by me. The song talks about ‘waadaa’, but we could not keep our ‘promise’ to post a song after four years i.e.in ‘2020’, even though two songs were lying ready with us. Today’s song , quite appropriately says ‘kisi ke waade pe kyun aitbaar hamne kiya’. 😊. Nevertheless, if not in ‘December-2020’ we are doing it now in ‘February-2021’…

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was directed by Ravi Chopra for B.R. Films, Bombay. It was produced by B.R. Chopra. Ravi Chopra also wrote the story of this movie. It had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi, Neetu Singh, Danny, Vinod Mehra, Jeetendra, Navin Nischol, Simi, Asha Sachdev, Padmini Kapila, Romesh Sharma, Payal, Asrani, Ranjeet, Iftekhar, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Rajendranath, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Padma Khanna, Komila Virk, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherji, Paintal, Dinesh Thakur, Yunus Parvez, Shammi, Ravindra Kapoor, T.P. Jain, Jankidas, Jagdish Raj, Gufi, Sudha Shivpuri, M. Rajan, Uma Dhawan, Mac Mohan, Anand Balraj, Prem Bedi, Master Bittoo, Baby Khushboo, Junior Danny, Master Romy, Master Salim and others. Madan Puri, Chandrashekhar, Satyen Kappu and Urmila Bhatt make a guest appearance in this movie.

Its screenplay and dialogues were written by Kamleshwar ji. Pran Mehra was the chief editor for this movie and S.B. Mane and R.P. Bapat assisted him.

This movie was passed by Censor Board 20.03.1980.

This movie had six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by R.D. Burman.
Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Padmini Kolhapure and Sushma Shreshtha and Usha Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. Here are the details of all the six songs in this movie;

“Phir Wahi Raat”(1980) was produced by N N Sippy and directed by Danny Denzongpa. This suspense film had Rajesh Khanna, Kim, Danny Denzongpa, Aruna Irani, Jagdeep, A K Hangal, Tamanna, Lalita Pawar, Shashikala, Suresh Oberoi, Bhagwan Dada, Mukri, Om Shivpuri, Shubha Khote etc in it.

I have not watched this movie, but the movie appears quite an interesting movie, going by the story as contained in its wikipedia page:

Asha(Kim) lives in a hostel and troubled by the nightmares of her deceased aunt. The hostel warden (Lalita Pawar) and her friend Shobha (Aruna Irani) take her to a psychiatrist Dr Vijay (Rajesh Khanna). Doctor finds nothing wrong with her and advises her to get away from old memories. Parents of other girl’s from the hostel complains the administration about Asha’s behaviour and she was told to vacate the place.

Asha decides to go to her ancestral home. Dr Vijay and Shobha accompanies her. The huge manor is taken care of by Vishwanath (A.K. Hanglal) and his daughter Gauri (Tamanna). Dr Vijay and Asha develop a bond and after a few days Dr Vijay goes back to city for some work. Same night Asha sees a scary looking woman walking in the corridors. The woman keeps haunting her every night and Asha’s condition worsens. Dr Vijay comes back to help her and meets Asha’s cousin Ashok (Danny) in the manor.

Dr Vijay and Ashok plan a big party on the occasion of Asha’s birthday. Ashok calls his wife who lives abroad to join them. Ashok’s wife arrives, when Asha is cutting her birthday cake. Asha gets shocked to see her as she is the same woman who is haunting her from last many days in the house. She gets panicked and stabs Ashok’s wife, who succumbs to her injuries and dies on the spot. Police inspector Sharma (Suresh Oberoi), who is a guest of the party arrests Asha on the charge of murder. The court suspends the hearing as Asha’s condition is not stable and she is not suitable to go through the legal process.

Dr Vijay treats Asha and tries to get the answer why Asha killed Ashok’s wife. He tells Asha that Ashok’s wife arrives in India on the same day and there is no possibility that Asha saw her before her birthday in that house. But Asha is adamant that it was Ashok’s wife who was haunting her.

Gauri also gets killed after a few days. Shobha starts watching another woman walking around the house. Dr Vijay investigates further with the help of Inspector Sharma and solve the mystery at the end exposing a web of lies and greed.

This story piqued my interest and I have thought of watching this movie to find about the mystery. Watching this movie on the big screen during its original run in 1980 would have been the best way to watch the movie. Watching this movie 40 years, and that too on a tiny laptop, sitting alone would not be the same. 95 % of the thril and anticipation and suspence of watcing the movie with others would be missing.

The movie had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Phir Wahi Raat”(1980) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Sushma Shreshtha. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a car song on Rajesh Khanna, Aruna Irani and Kim.

The tune of the some sounds familiar. It is same as that of Meri soni meri tamanna jhoothha nahin hai mera pyaar (Yaadon Ki Baaraat). If this movie is called “Phir Wahi Raat”, then this tune can be called “Phir Wahi tune”. 🙂

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala long ago. Today happens to be his birthday. So we take this opportunity to wish him happy birthday and many happy returns of the day,

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Welcome all to this seventh article in the series ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon’. When I took up this series, I thought I will try to share articles on regular basis at least monthly, and so that within a year or so the series will get completed.

However, it has been more than five years now and some articles which I initially planned are yet to come … so we continue. And, instead of moving to the next year i.e., 1981 from the last post which presented a song of 1980, we will be enjoying a song again from a 1980 movie of Rajesh Khanna.

This is because I wish to include today’s song in this series and I constantly felt that I should not move ahead without this lovely song. After all, ‘1980’ was a special year for Kaka and it was like a turning point in his career as after this he was back and had started delivering hits on regular intervals.

But before moving ahead we will have a look on the articles posted in this series so far,

SN Song
1) Haseenon mere paas aao
2) Mahaa shoonya ke mahaan vistaar mein
3) Baby ghar chalo, ghar tum bin hai soonaa
4) Chal chal aage nikal
5) Tum nahin maanoge
6) Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin

Today’s post is to pay our tributes to Rajesh Khanna on his birth anniversary. That way it is a big day on the blog specially for Rajesh Khanna fans (or people like me 😊).

Today 29th December’2020 is the seventy-eighth birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (Jatin Khanna – his original name). He was born on 29th December’1942 and passed away on 18th July’2012.
He would have turned seventy-eight had he been alive today.

Rajesh Khanna made his debut in Bollywood with the movie ‘Aakhri Khat’ in 1966. However, it was only after three years i.e., in 1969 that his movie ‘Aradhana’ got released and he rose to stardom and popularity, which nobody had witnessed and tasted before.

In 1969 there were six movies of Rajesh Khanna released and they were viz. ‘Aradhana’, ‘Bandhan’, ‘Do Raaste’, ‘Doli’, ‘Itefaq’ and ‘Khamoshi’.
So that was exactly more than fifty years ago now, and coming to think of the end of this year 2020 his movies released in ‘1970’ will become ‘fifty years old’ now.

In 1970 following movies of Rajesh Khanna were released;

SNo Movie Title Director
01 Aan Milo Sajna Mukul Dutt
02 Anand Hrishikesh Mukherjee
03 Kati Patang Shakti Samanta
04 Sachcha Jhootha Manmohan Desai
05 Safar Asit Sen
06 The Train Ravikant Nagaich

The next year i.e., ‘1971’ was another big year for him which saw seven of his movies releasing in the year viz. ‘Amar Prem’, ‘Andaz’, Chhoti Bahu’,’Dushman’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Maryada’, and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’.

Looking back at the movies of Rajesh Khanna released in these three consecutive years (1969-1970-1971) makes me to try and visualise how people were responding to his movies ? specially when we read about the ‘mass hysteria’ he created then, and people thronging outside his bungalow to get a ‘glimpse’ of him or ‘girls’ leaving their ‘lips’ on his car and if that was not sufficient, they were also writing him letters with their ‘blood’. All seems like reading a ‘fairy tale’. But that was how the country was under the ‘severe’ grip of ‘Kaka’s charisma’ then. Today nobody will believe that such things happened then. Only those who have witnessed and lived through those years will be able to share about how it was then?

I bet, even today, if all the above movies (and others in later years from 1972 onwards) are released back-to-back and if one watches them, he will definitely fall in love with Rajesh Khanna.

Other main thing associated with Rajesh Khanna’s movies was their songs. Almost all the movies (not all of the 1980s) have a very good music and some have given us the gems of the songs of Hindi Film Music then. The picturization of the ‘song sequences’ and Kaka’s performing on them with his charismatic style and jigs also made the songs special. Songs created by R.D. Burman-Anand Bakshi-Kishore Kumar will always be remembered in the history of HFM of that era.

If somebody happens to come across HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980), please do read the complimentary messages on the release of this ‘geet-kosh’.

Here is what Music Critic Raju Bharatan had said about this decade; (I am reproducing it below);

“The music we created lives” says Naushad Ali, “because it is music with a soul, a tradition.” Such music also lives because now there is the Hindi Film Geet Kosh for each song to come dancing before our eyes. And, I remember, it was Bishwa Nath Chattejee who, some 15 years back corrected some factual errors I had made in my ‘Forty years of Naushad’ story in “The Illustrated Weekly.” Also, some five years back, I remember basing almost my entire four-page article on Sachin Dev Burman on the SD Geet Kosh so painstakingly presented by Bishwa Nath Chatterjee in his ‘Saurabh-77’.
I have therefore no doubt that Bishwanath will do a similar thorough job on the 1971-1980 HFGK. This 1971-1980 decade, in my opinion, is the most important Geet Kosh for our record, since this was the decade in which our Film music underwent a metamorphosis. Browsing through this 1971-80 Geet Kosh, we are sure to get a composite idea of why our composers could not by 1980, call the tune the way they did in 1971, the year in which that Musical Superstar, Rajesh Khanna, rose to his peak. Even without looking at this Geet Kosh, I can testify that Bishwa Nath Chatterjee has done a momentous job. …. ….”

So, Kaka was a ‘Musical Superstar’ too and music of his movies always had to be good if not great always. Though, many of his movies of the eighties surrendered to the popular demand and the music produced was same as in the league of the other movies of those years. (That we will be discussing in the future posts under this series on the blog).

Today we enjoy a lovely song from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Bandish’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I remember this song since my childhood days as it used to play on radio for the promotion of this movie. I like this song very much though the other song of this movie ‘rang bhare mausam se rang churaake’ was more popular, I think.

Today’s song also happens to be picturized on Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini like the above song.

By the way, let us also have a look on the blog ten-years back this day. Here are the details of songs posted by our dear Atul ji on 29.12.2010 on the blog;

SN Song
1) Ham dono do premi duniya chhod chalen
2) Karwaten badalte rahen saari raat ham
3) Bye bye miss good night kal phir milenge
4) Rimjhim rimjhim dekho baras rahi raat
5) Pasand aa gayi ik kaafir haseena
6) Aayo re aayo re aayo re saawan aayo re
7) Aa jaao aa bhi jaao

So, we had seven posts in a single day – all Rajesh Khanna songs – all posts done by Atul ji, including two songs from ‘Bandhan-1969’. I think that makes many things clear and no body should have doubt now as who else other than me and Raja ji is the great fan of Rajesh Khanna. 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song and remember Kaka …

Hindi songs in Malayalam films-2
—————————————————
Hullo Atuldom

I am not attempting a tribute to the great favorite of millions of Hindi film music lovers. I am sure there are many Atulites who are competent and will do a great job of it.

I am just presenting HFM lovers a song which is not from a Hindi movie. I landed on this song as I was going through the discography of the singer whose voice has mesmerized an entire generation and his fans exist across the length and breadth of this vast country and beyond the boundaries. His fan following is not bounded by language barriers as we know that he has sung in various Indian and foreign languages.

So without beating around the bush, I shall straight away get to the song. It is from the 27th June, 1980 released, Malayalam movie “Thaliritta Kinakkal”. ‘Thalir’ means tender leaf and ‘Kinakkal’ means dreams. So the title should loosely translate to ‘Tender Dreams’.

It was directed by P. Gopikumar, Jamal Kochangadi was the story, screenplay and dialogue writer. When I read the cast of the movie I was astonished to find Madhu Malini and Tanuja’s names; of course I am aware that Madhu Malini (sister in many Hindi movies of the ’80s) had done a few movies in Malayalam. But Tanuja!!! (I need to see this movie). More importantly for the sake of the song with this post.

I was amused to see the actor – Padmadalakshan (who was more popular as Kuthiravattam Pappu) – lip syncing to this wonderful voice of HFM. I immediately showed the video of the song to my dear Mom-in-law as I was having trouble recalling the name of the lady to whom the song was being addressed. She instantly pointed the direction and I recalled the various characters that this lady has played in Malayalam movies; beginning her career in 1957 till her death in 2009; her last release was in 2004. This lady goes by the name Adoor Bhavani. She was a Kerala Sangeetha Natak Academy award winning stage actress as well as popular enough to have appeared in about 450 films. She was also associated with Kerala People’s Art Club.

Coming back to the song. The makers of this movie, being huge fans of the Hindi film legend were keen on getting him to record for them. The legend commented that he needed a few weeks to learn the pronunciation of the language and also the meaning as without that he would not be able to impart the right emotions. Don’t we know this about our legend- how meticulous he was about each and every song that he has recorded. Whether it were his ‘halke-phulke’ “yahoo-type” songs, “bapu ki yeh amar kahaani” type patriotic songs, or any ghazal, bhajan, highly romantic or supremely melodious sad numbers. This legend was a go-to for songs of every genre and actor and emotion and pitch. There has been no replacement for him.

I seem to be straying.

So, as I said earlier, there are fans of this legend across the country and it is a small wonder that the makers of “Thaliritta Kinnakal” approached the legend and he didn’t refuse them. But I would surely love to know what transpired in the interim and the legend ended up recording a Hindi song for the Malayalam film.

Thus, we are having a Hindi song from a Malayalam film, sung by our very own Mohd. Rafi saab (I am sure I didn’t have to mention the playback singer’s name) which is lip synced by Kuthiravattam Pappu addressing Adoor Bhavani. We see, as the song is coming to a close, Adoor Bhavani is actually dancing to the song that is playing on a Two-in-one. I vividly recall that it was customary for all gulf-returnees to get one for their dear ones back home. We also see that ‘Pappu’ spies Bhavani and calls Madhu Malini too, to enjoy the sight of the 50-year-old lady’s antics.

The composer is Jithin Shyam and Aayish Kamal is the lyricist.

I would like to mention here that both these talented actors of Malayalam are impersonating characters usually played by Prem Nazir and Jayabharathi (the pair known for romantic duets of those times). I am assuming that this is part of the comic-romantic-sub plot of the movie something that our Mehmood used to excel in with either Shubha Khote or Aruna Irani in tow.
Wishing that our Rafisaab was here, in this mortal world, to see us, his fans, going crazy on his 96th birthday.


Song-Jaadoo hai meethha meethha jaana meri baaton mein (Thaliritta Kinakkal)(Malayalam)(1980) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Aayish Kamal, MD-Jithin Shyam

Lyrics

shabaab leke woh
jaane shabaab aaya hai
utar ke jaise yahaan
aaftaab aaya hai
tujh ko o
chaand sitaare salaam
kehte hain
teri aankhen hain ya koi jaam

jaadu hai meetha meetha

apna bana hi loonga

jaadu hai meetha meetha

chaahat pe zor kisi baat ka kabhi na chala
shama jali toh wahin aake parwaana jala
chaahat ke rog se bacha hai yahaan kaun bhala
ae mere dil tu u u u
ho na beqaabu u u u
haan
saara zamaana dekha tujh sa mila na koi
mehfil mein aaya tere pyaar ka deewaana koi
jalwe lutaate huye
chhed de taraana koi
hai yehi maukaa aa aa aa aa
yoon toh na sharmaa aa aa aa aa
haan
jaadu hai meetha meetha
jaana meri baaton mein

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 108 # Tribute to Lyricist – Anjaan #
——————————————————————————–

Today 28th Oct’2020 is the ninetieth birth anniversary (born on 28.10.1930 in Varanasi) of Lalji Pandey better known to us by his pen-name ‘Anjaan’.

As per our blog statistics he has written over 1300 songs during his career in Hindi movies. Most of his works were in collaborations with composers Kalyanji–Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, R. D. Burman and Bappi Lahiri.

He passed away at the age of sixty-six on 3rd of Septemeber’1997 in Mumbai.

On his ‘birth anniversary’ I was looking for a song from a new movie where he had penned all the songs.

I am taking the readers to the decade of seventies. Today we will listen to an enjoyable song from that decade. This song was frequently heard on radio those days. It was perhahs the only known song from the movie.

I have not watched this movie so I am in no position to discuss much about it.

The movie is “Jwaalaamukhi”(1980). So it is another same name movie getting introduced in the blog.

“Jwaalaamukhi-1980” was directed by Prakash Mehra for Baboo Mehra Productions, Bombay. It had Waheeda Rehman, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Vinod Mehra, Shabana Azmi, Bindu, Kader Khan, Shreeram Lagoo, Pran, Ram Sethi, Bhola, Yunus Parvez, Shivraj, Asha Chandra, Mumtaz Begam, Goga, Kirti, Uttam Sodi, Jugnu and others.

Amjad Khan, Aruna Irani and Raj Babbar had ‘special appearance’ in the movie.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.12.1980.

I do not remember how this movie had fared at the box office so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

The movie had five songs including a music track as mentioned in HFGK and listed below (our new practice now onwards while introducing a movie 😊)

All the songs were written by Anjaan and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

None of the songs from this movie made it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ of 1981 (as the movie was released in December’1980).
When I thought that the today’s song should be more popular as I liked it listening then too and could have made to the list or ‘shadow list’ of the ‘binaca geetmala’ (or songs that could not make it to the finals as compiled by Anil Bhargava), to my surprise it was not. However, one other song from this movie “Paan, beedi, cigarette, tambaaku, na sharaab, ham ko nasha hai muhabbat ka janaab’ sung by Kishore Kumar made it to this ‘shadow’ list.

List of songs in this movie as appearing in HFGK (1971-1980) Vol-V.

Song Title Singer
1) Hum tere bina bhi nahin jee sakte … Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata
2) Hmm hmm tujhe sab pyaar karte hai…ye chehre pe chehraa Kishore Kumar
3) Kabhi tumne kisi ko phaansaa … Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
4) Hmm welcome …. hamko to nashaa muhabbat ka hai janaab Kishore Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha
5) Music –

let us now enjoy this wonderful and highly hummable song. It is picturized on Shabana Azmi, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra and Reena Roy who are performing on the song while many others are seen in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

“Man Pasand” (1980 – censored on 26-6-1980 and released on 11-7-1980) was among the first few movies whose music cassette was purchased by my father along with “Yaarana” when they hit the market. And since then I am a huge fan of their songs. I Know almost all of them by heart.
This was a movie produced by Amit Khanna and directed by Basu Chatterji. Rajesh Roshan was the music director and Amit Khanna himself wrote the lyrics. The movie itself was inspired by the famous stage play by George Bernard Shaw – ‘Pygmalion’ (first published in 1913), and also on the hugely popular iconic film ‘My Fair Lady’ (1964 – Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn). The movie stars Dev Anand, Tina Munim, Girish Karnad, Simple Kapadia, Leela Mishra, Jalal Agha (appears as a guest in the song with this post), Piloo Wadia and Mehmood.

The movie has Dev Anand and Girish Karnad playing best friends, bachelors and musicologists. They encounter a loud and foul-mouthed vendor of ‘datun’ {neem branches} in the late-night local trains of Mumbai. Then and there, Dev (Pratap) throws a challenge that he can transform the unpolished girl into a graceful and talented singer and Karnad (Kashinath) picks up the bet and agrees to marry the girl if Pratap is successful.”

The above is from the last post that I wrote for this movie, in 2018 to celebrate Dev Anand’s 95th birthday.

We revisit the movie today. It has songs in the voice of another legend. When this movie was being made i.e. at the time of recording the songs of this movie, our Nightingale or Saraswathi- incarnate (as she is addressed by her ardent fans) must have been in her late 40s or just turned 50. She had been in the industry for nearly 37-38 years having stepped into the film world at the young age of 13, with the sole aim of supporting her family after the untimely death of her father. There was a time when she was rejected by Sashadhar Mukherjee for having a “thin-voice”. But it is that same “thin-voice” which was used in later years for songs that were filmed as early morning songs- “jaago mohan pyaare jaago” (Jaagte Raho); “jyoti kalash chalke” (Bhabhi Ki Choodiyan); “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” & “Bhor bhaye panghat pe” (Satyam Shivam Sundaram); and the bhajan which Saira Banu lip syncs in the morning hours in “Shaagird” – ‘Kanha kanha aan padi main tere dwar’. These are only a sample of what India’s Nightingale -Lata Mangeshkar – has given us over a career span of about 66-67 years. From the discography available on various websites it looks like she has stopped singing film songs sometime in 2010- that is why I have said that the career span is about 66/67 years. Of course, there was a time when she used to sing for actresses who were 50 years younger to her; then she switched to singing one or at the most two songs per movie after 2001 but has kept her date with recording songs by bringing out non-film albums and bhajans etc. I read somewhere that after a 14-year hiatus she recorded a song for some movie called “Dunno Y—Na Jaane Kyun” (2010).

She is a recipient of various awards including the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 1989, the Padma Bhushan (1969), Padma Vibhushan (1999) and finally the Bharat Ratna in 2001. She definitely is India’s Ratna (Gem), don’t know if we will have another like her ever!!!!

Coming back to the song for this post. This is the song by which Pratap (Dev Anand) introduces a fully trained & graceful Kamli (Tina) to upper class, high-society, party-going friends of his. He showcases her as an accomplishment of his scientific method of music coaching. The song which is composed by Rajesh Roshan as a semi classical number was picturised on a young Tina Munim and gives us a sample of what the ‘Koyal Kanthi’ Lata Mangeshkar is all about. Why I say sample is because this is a very short song. There are other songs where she has sung full classical and semi classical for close to ten minutes or even more. Here I remember another song where, in a Dev Anand movie, S D Burman has given Lata Didi (as the film industry addresses her) an 8½ minute song which has various ragas incorporated in it (any guesses which song I am referring to).

“Man Pasand” has had a rather slow journey on the blog. The movie has 8 songs of which the first one in Mohd. Rafi’s voice was posted in March of 2009. The previous song posted was in 2018 on the occasion of Dev Anand’s birth anniversary.

Here is the penultimate song the post for which began a day before Devsaab’s birth anniversary in 2019.

I can write a lot more about the song and the near-parallel careers of Devsaab and Latadidi in the film industry. But I choose to halt here.
Wishing our dear Lata Mangeshkar, a very Happy 91st birthday. Salute to her on her long innings in the industry.

64th Birthday of Ranjeeta Kaur – 22.09.2020
———————————————————
I wish life could be just a song for the road just like this song on a motorcycle. A song heard in childhood, mainly on radio. In 1980 we had a T.V. at home, but that was only aired in the evening. The radio could be heard during the day also, but they were on air for specific hours only, be it “vividh bharati” or “All india Radio”, of which urdu service was the one for film songs. All these years the lyrics of the song complete with the first stanza have stayed in the memory. After the advent of youtube, I may have looked up this song too alongwith many other old songs.

I have seen quite a few films of Ranjeeta while she was active in the 80’s, as I and my mother used to like her innocent, homely looks. Many of these films were B grade low-budget films like ‘Qismat”, “Tarana” and ‘Khwaab” to name a few. She was paired with Mithun Chakrovorty in these films. I was under the impression that “Ankhiyon ke jharoke se”(1978) was a debut film for her, whereas she had appeared in the hit film “Laila Majnu” in 1976, opposite Rishi Kapoor. Both these are notable films of her career. But there after she appeared in few A grade films in bit roles like ‘‘Rajput”, “Satte Pe Satta” and “Krodhi”. Films like “Ham se Badhkar kaun”, “Aap to aise na the”, “Ustadi Ustad se” and “Tarana” are all seen and forgotten films.

As Ranjeeta Kaur turns 64 today, I am presenting this happy romantic song where she is singing this duet on motorcycle and the beach. The name of the film is “Khwaab”(1980) and singers are Hemlata and Yasudas. The lyricist and music director is Ravindra Jain.

Two songs from the film are posted.
Tu hi wo haseen hai
Ek aas liye vishwaas liye

“Khwaab” is one of its kind title as I could find no other film with the title as ‘Khwab” or ‘Khwaab”. The word means dream, and this year 2020 is turning out like a bad dream. I am sure all of us have had this feeling that we are asleep and embroiled in a bad dream, and hope fervently that we will wake up soon and this whole tragic crisis will disappear. Hope that it will dissolve like a bad dream, is soon forgotten.

Let us go to the song, which I would have categorized as a “in the family way songs” seeing the words of first stanza, but this one is not such a song. I have a few songs for this category in mind. Let us see when I get around to those songs. They are mostly 80’s/90’s songs, so this can be a precursor to that series.

This song starts with the urdu alphabet ‘khai’ making it one of rare songs for ‘antakshari” 🙂 . Only other song I can remember is “khwaab ho tum ya koyi haqeeqat kaun ho tum batlaao……..”. Not that most people bother with the fine distinction between the ‘kh’ of “khilauna” and ‘kh’ of ‘Khwaab’. I can wish all I want for a way of distinguishing it in the English script, with a dot or some such thing. Rekhta.com has adopted an entirely different way of spelling the urdu /hindi words in English script, which is rather complicated even for someone like me. Urdu is a language with fewest dictionary words. Sometimes the same word is used for different meanings in different situation. One example is the word “taarikh” which means “date” and history, but not inclusive. Then there is the confusion with ‘q’ and ‘k’.

Common words where K is correct are :
Mushkil – difficulty
Ashk – tear (aansoo)
Rashk – envy
Shak – doubt
Kalaam – spoken word or talk
Shikwa – grievance
Shikayat – complaint
Shaukat – power or dignity

Q is appropriate here :
Qalam – pen
Ishq – love
Raqs – dance
Qalb – heart
Sadaqah – charity (sort of)
Beqaraar – restless, disturbed
Shauq – deep interest, zeal
Qataar – line, queue or array
Iqraar – acceptance or agree, promise

And there is added complication of words where ‘Q’ is compulsorily written as ‘que’ as it is done in ‘Ishque’ or ‘aashiqui’ or some names such as siddique and taarique. I have not gotten to two different alphabet with different sounds for whom the alphabet ‘t’ is used. The ‘t’ of ‘taara’ is different from the ‘t’ of ‘totaa’. There is confusion galore for the untutored. So we let it be, the ‘no pain no gain’ school of thought be brushed under the carpet 🙂 .

Now that I have heard the song two three times, I have realized that it remained in the memory because of its very sweet and melodious sound. It is memorable for the lyrics as well as tune and the singing of both Hemlata and Yasudas.


Song-Ham khwaab ko badal denge haqeeqat mein (Khwaab)(1980) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein

mil ke rahenge donon
armaanon ki jannat mein
ham apne khwaab ko
badal denge ae
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge ae
haqeeqat mein

chhotaa sa ek ghar hogaa
haan chhotaa sa ek ghar hogaa
aur ghar mein honge
saanwle salone

hanste bolte khilaune
ham do hamaare do
nahin nahin
mere do tumhaare do
kat jaayegaa ye jeewan
unhi ki hifaajat mein
ham apne khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein

kabhi kabhi
beete dinon par
jaayegi jab nazar
oo ooo
sochenge kitne haseen thhe
woh shaam woh sehar

oo ooo
sochenge kitne haseen thhe
woh shaam woh sehar

nit aayengi bahaaren
nit khilenge phool suhaane
oo hoo ooo
nit aayengi bahaaren
nit khilenge phool suhaane

yoonhi rahenge zamaanon tak
khushiyon ke zamaane
aa haa haa
aa haa haa
ham tum judaa na honge
ab to kisi soorat mein
ham apne khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein
ham khwaab ko
badal denge
haqeeqat mein

Hullo atuldom

Many times I find a celebrity’s birthday and then look for a song featuring him/ her. Then, there are times when I see or hear a song and look for the birth-dates or anniversaries of those related with that song. In both the scenarios the post is nearly ready due to readily available songs. There is a third scenario where when I visit the birth-dates/ anniversary page of our blog and I see a birthday of an artiste, whose work I like, coming up, I rush to look for possible songs and find it difficult to zero in on anyone because there are too may options. So to make selection easy, I make things more complicated by trying to find debut songs of the person, adding a condition that the person should be seen lip-syncing and if he/she is dancing in the song or at-least shaking a leg that would be a BONUS.

So today we are celebrating the 70th birthday of an actor who made un-credited appearances in ‘Aman’ (1967) and ‘Aan Baan’ (1972). Shyam Benegal was the one who first cast him as Vishwam in ‘Nishant’ in 1975 and there began his journey in the parallel cinema of the Indian Film industry. His foray into commercial cinema came about when he played one of the Pandavs in ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) which was not a mythological movie but a movie with a social message. From then on, he has straddled cinema of various genres and been successful enough to last till today. He has given memorable performances and has been a recipient of the National Award and Filmfare award for the best actor three times. Additionally he has been awarded the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan.

Initially we saw him as a costar to Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil. Then with ‘Katha’ (1982) Deepti Naval became his heroine and his movies could be said to have become commercially viable when we saw him with Rekha in two movies – ‘Umrao Jaan’ (1981) and ‘Ijaazat’ (1987). I think he did one more movie with Rekha I can’t recollect. Here I am not talking of Rekha movies where this actor played negative characters meaning played a villain (being the right term). Oh yes, this actor has played villain and hero in traditionally masala films. Just goes to show how versatile he is.

I am sure the readers have guessed that I am talking of Naseeruddin Shah. I loved what Sudhirji wrote in his post for the song “Kisi Na Kisi Se Kabhi Na Kabhi (Medley)” last year on the same occasion. I think we should revisit it.

For today let us see him sing and dance with Mithun Chakravarty and Yogita Bali. So “Oye oye. . . Tirchi Topiwaale” was not the first time he tried to dance.  Here he has played Mithun’s friend and Yogeeta’s brother. The song is from the romantic thriller ‘Khwaab’ (1980) which was directed by Shakti Samanta. It had songs written and composed by Ravindra Jain. Today’s song is sung by Jaspal Singh, Suresh Wadkar and Hemlata. The story of the movie is present in the only song of the movie that has been posted in the monsoon of 2015 – “Tu Hi Wo Haseen Hai“.

Happy Birthday to Naseeruddin Shah – stay healthy and may we have more from you.

Song – Ek Aas Liye Vishwaas Liye  (Khwaab) (1980) Singer – Suresh Wadkar, Jaspal Singh, Hemlata, Lyrics – Ravindra Jain, MD – Ravindra Jain
Suresh Wadkar + Jaspal Singh + Hemlata

Lyrics 

ooo hohohoooooho
ooo hoho hoooo ho
aaa aaaaa
(ooo hoho hoooo ho)
aaa aaaaa
(ooo hoho hoooo ho)

ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe
jisey aas na ho 
jisey aas na ho 
vishwas na ho
wo kya dhoondhe kahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

ahaa ahaa haa lalala laa 
ohohoho oooo
ahaa ahaa haa lalala laa 
ohohoho oooo

dharti se aasman tak 
manzilon ke silsile
wo kya karey jisey manzil
mil ke bhi na miley
yun bhi hota hai jeewan mein 
rehta chhupa mann mein
mere saathi
mil jaata hai wo bina dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

sapna ho jin mein koi 
soti nahin hain woh aankhen
saathi adhure sapne 
meri bhi aankhon mein jhaanken
har sukh se juda dukh hai 
dukh ka apna sukh hai
mere saathi
sab kuch na miley yahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera mann manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

ahaa ahaa haa lalala laa 
ohohoho oooo

nit bhor ki ye laali 
deti sandesha zindagi ka
jis ne andhere kaate 
hoga savera bhi usi ka
koi meet sahara de to
jeene ka ishaara de to
mere sathi
wahin manzil tu jahaan dhoondhe
ek aas liye
vishwas liye 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe 
mera man manzil ke nishaan dhoondhe

ओ हो हो होsssss हो
ओ हो हो होsssहो
आss आssss
(ओ हो हो होsssहो)
आss आssss
(ओ हो हो होsssहो)

इक आस लिए
विश्वास लिए
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे
इक आस लिए
विश्वास लिए
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे
जिसे आस ना हो
जिसे आस ना हो
विश्वास ना हो
वो क्या ढूँढे कहाँ ढूँढे
इक आस लिए
विश्वास लिए
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे

आहा आहा हा लाल्लाल्ला ला
ओहो हो हो ओsss
आहा आहा हा लाल्लाल्ला ला
ओहो हो हो ओsss

धरती से आसमान तक
मंज़िलों के सिलसिले
वो की करे जिसे मंज़िल
मिल के भी ना मिले
यूं भी होता है जीवन में
रहता है छुपा मन में
मेरे साथी
मिल जाता है वो बिना ढूँढे
इक आस लिए
विश्वास लिए
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे

सपना हो जिन में कोई
सोती नहीं वो आँखें
साथी अधूरे सपने
मेरी भी आँखों में झाँकें
हर सुख से जुड़ा दुख है
दुख का अपना सुख है
मेरे साथी
सब कुछ ना मिले यहाँ ढूँढे
इक आस लिए
विश्वास लिए
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे

आहा आहा हा लाल्लाल्ला ला
ओहो हो हो ओsss

नित भोर की ये लाली
देती सँदेसा ज़िंदगी का
जिसने अंधेरे काटे
होगा सवेरा भी उसी का
कोई मीत सहारा दे तो
जीने का इशारा दे तो
मेरे साथी
वहीं मंज़िल तू जहां ढूँढे
इक आस लिए
विश्वास लिए
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे
मेरा मन मंज़िल के निशां ढूँढे
