#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# The Special Voices of the decade – 2 # Anwar #
———————————————–———————-

Welcome all to this second article under this ‘series’.

In this ‘series’ we are discussing the ‘Special Voices’ which emerged on the horizon of HFM in the years of Seventies, and who in their own way have left an indelible mark in the minds of ‘music lovers’ leaving behind legacy of many many memorable songs.

These ‘Special Voices’ are those singers who make their entry in Hindi Film Music when the legends like Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mukesh, Mahendra Kapoor among Male Singers and Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, among female singers were already ruling the Hindi Film Music scene. Still, these new voices, when they entered into HFM, took the audience by storm. Some of them were successful enough and popular too, and they continue to sustain for a long time.

However, some, though they shine very brightly as they appear on the scene, but were not able to sustain for a long time and slowly fade away from the scene and may be from the memory of many people too. In any case all of them gave us many fabulous songs and memories to cherish forever. Some of these Singers continued to enjoy being favorites among music directors and audience and/ or both and were successful in keeping themselves going and singing.

But some were not lucky enough and were sidelined with or without any reason. Politics, ego, discrimination and hypocrisy play their roles around us in every sphere of life, and Cinema too has always been influenced by these factors. Many talented people have been affected by this. And so, if one compares the number of songs their final tally read one will conclude that they were not successful or popular as the other established singers of their time who were ruling the charts at that time.

But, numbers are not the true test and so in these cases they will not justify the immense talent these people possess.

One of such talented Singer is the name – Anwar Hussain or Anwar as he is better known by. The voice that was said to be the ‘closest’ to, and having a ‘strange resemblance’ with the voice of Rafi Saab.

Anwar was born on 1st February, 1949 in Mumbai. His father Aashiq Hussain was an accomplished harmonium player and assistant to the famous Music Director Ghulam Haider. His father also used to play sitar. This familiar film and music background inspired young Anwar to take on music and singing. Looking at his interest in singing, his father took him to Ustad Abdul Rehman Khan for training in classical music. Here Anwar took a rigorous training for more than ten years.

Simultaneously he was also doing stage shows where he used to sing songs of Rafi Saab. He was noticed by the famous S. Hazara Singh who took him to Poona to sing with his musical group. While Anwar was going around doing the stage shows and singing in marriage functions, he always wanted to do playback singing for movies. His friends were also encouraging him always and telling him that his voice was very much similar to that of Rafi Saab’s voice.

Music director Kamal Rajasthani who was also struggling then to establish himself as a music-director in Hindi film world, spotted Anwar during one of his stage shows and he gave him a break as a playback singer in the movie ‘Mere Ghareeb Nawaaz’ (1973). Kamal Rajasthani also gave him further training to polish his talent.

Anwar made his debut in Hindi films with this song ‘Kasmein Hum Apni Jaan Ki Khaaye Chale Gaye’. Though initially he rehearsed for a different song but was finally given this solo and to sing. It so happened that Rafi Saab was present in the same studio where mixing of this song was being done and when Rafi Saab listened to this song, he asked his secretary when did he recorded this one. One can easily assume that the praise and showering coming straight from the ‘living legend’ then would have been more than enough for someone to establish himself in the industry and make a great career.

However, unfortunately, ‘stars’ were not in favor of Anwar and his career didn’t take off after his debut as he expected it to be. When he recorded his first song he was just twenty years old. So, it was still a long way to go for him. But in spite of the ‘perfect start’ with ‘Mere Ghareeb Nawaaz’, he had to wait for almost four years to get his next chance to sing in Hindi films.

And that too came up after lot of struggle and making visits to several music directors. As told by Anwar himself he used to visit many music directors and play his first recorded song to get work. Many of them appreciated him, but also told him that since Rafi Saab was already there so they didn’t see any reason to have him song for them. In a very recent interview of 2016 Anwar has given vent to his feelings, and his mistakes too, which he admits were mainly responsible to ruin his career in HFM.

Well, coming back to his looking for work, he met many of the leading and famous music directors of that time but nothing materialized. Finally, when he contacted Mehmood who was then busy in the making of ‘Kunwaara Baap’ (1974). He got some respite, as Mehmood assured him to give songs in his next movie ‘Janta Hawaldar’ (1979). Mehmood took him to music director Rajesh Roshan. The latter took him on as a playback singer, without asking him any questions, as he was aware of Mehmood’s ‘music sense’.

And after that as we are all aware the songs of ‘Janta Hawaldar’ were liked immensely by the public specifically “Hamse Ka Bhool Huyi“and “Teri Aankhon Ki Chaahat Mein”.

The song that was first recorded for this movie was “Teri Aankhon Ki Chaahat Mein”. After recording, Mehmood took to play it for Rajesh Khanna who was shooting at ‘Filmalaya Studios’ for another movie. When he listened to this song his reaction was – “Bade dinon ke baad Rafi saab ne bade mood mein gaana gaya hai”.

After this movie he started getting offers and some of his notable songs came in movies like ‘Qurbaani’ (1980), ‘Aahista Aahista’ (1981), ‘Naseeb’ (1981), ‘Prem Rog’ (1982), ‘Vidhaata’ (1982), ‘Arpan’ (1983), ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ (1984), ‘Ham Hain Laajawaab’ (1984), ‘Ye Ishq Nahin Aasan’ (1984), ‘Heer Raanjha’ (1992), etc.

His career lasted for almost twenty years from 1973 to 1993. And as mentioned by him in the interview on RS TV he sang about 1000 to 1500 songs for the movies (I am not aware if this is only for Hindi Movies or it includes other language movies too. Knowledgeable readers are requested to throw more light on this.)

In this same interview the anchor noted and I also vaguely remembered that people initially thought that Anwar was the son of Rafi Saab. It should be noted here that from 1973 to 1980 when Rafi Saab was still alive, he got very less opportunities of singing in movies. Though he got the opportunity to sing with Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Suresh Wadkar, Asha Bhonsle, Sudha Malhotra and others he didn’t get that much if we compare it with other singers and that too specially Rafi Saab himself had said about him that he is the best one who could fill the gap after him.

But nothing magical happened and thus a talented singer’s career come to a sad end.

Other than the songs that I mentioned above I like his “Koyee Pardesi Aaya Pardes Mein  and “Haathon Ki Chand Lakeeron Ka”. I would also like to mention the song “Yaar Dagaa De Gaya Dulhan Ko Le Gaya” which is having his voice along with Manna Dey and Jaspal Singh. Another famous song by him is “Mohabbat Ab Tijaarat Ban Gayi Hai”, which he sang for Jeetendra in 1983 for the film ‘Arpan’ which is his other song I like very much and it was quite popular too in those years.

There are many of his songs which I like or which had been popular, however I have mentioned above only those songs which give me ‘nostalgic’ feeling most. So far (if the data is updated and correct) we have only eleven of his songs posted on the blog; and not a single one of his from the melodious musical ‘Ahista Ahista’ has been posted so far on the blog. But, well, that gives us an opportunity to discuss them in future.

Today’s song is closer to my heart and very nostalgic for me. For today’s post initially, I strongly felt to share the song “Nazar Se Phool Chunti Hai Nazar” from ‘Aahista Aahista’, but I skipped it for future. The second option was the beautiful song from ‘Janta Hawaldar’ – “Teri Aankhon Ki Chaahat Mein” (this was available and shared by me long back in 2012, but still to be posted). However, for today, I have selected this song from ‘Be-Shaque’ (1980). Because this way I can also introduce this movie on the blog.

This was a song in my vague memory and I was sure that it was sung by Mohd Rafi. It was in my wish list of the songs that I wish to see on our blog. Before I could search and prepare for it one fine day I noticed that it has been posted for the film ‘Laal Bangla’ (1966). But when I checked again, I found that it does not have the same lines that were in my memory for so long. Confused, I keep on searching and finally succeeded in getting the song which I think I have heard many many years back. Now I got to know that this is sung by Anwar and not by Mohd Rafi. But interestingly, the music for the films ‘Laal-Bangla’ and the movie for today’s song, is composed by the same music director Usha Khanna. The lyrics of this song are penned by Nandi Khanna.

I have not watched this movie and would request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this film and the songs from this film. Also, I would like to note here that when I shared this song long back I had only the video of this song which has only one stanza. At that time I thought the song was only this one stanza. Now after almost five years I have been able to find the full version of this song (but audio only) which is being presented with this post today.

The film ‘Be-Shaque’ was directed by Kashinath for Surya Gayatri Productions, Bombay. It had Yogita Bali, Mithun Chakravarty, Sonia Sahni, Jalal Agha, Amrish Puri, Asha Chandra, Suresh Chatwal, Mohan Choti, Pental, Raj Bibra and Shakti Kapoor. This movie has four songs (as per HFGK Vol-V) – two penned by Anjaan, and one each by Ravindra Rawal and Nandi Khanna. Music is by Usha Khanna. Anwar, Asha Bhonsle, Suresh Wadkar and Usha Khanna gave their voices to the songs in this movie. On screen this song is lip synced by Mithun Chakravarty.

Today 1st February being the sixty-ninth birth anniversary of Anwar Hussain or Anwar, let us wish a very happy birthday to him and a healthy and peaceful life ahead. Enjoy this wonderful song. . .

“Shaan” (1980) was a movie directed by Ramesh Sippy and produced by Sippy Films. Music was by Rahul Dev Burman and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The credits of the movie show a dancer shaking herself to Usha Uthup’s singing and Mohd. Rafi is credited as late Mohd. Rafi. (The release date of the movie was 12 Dec 1980.) Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and RD were the other singers.

Amitabh Bachchan- Shashi Kapoor- Shatrughan Sinha were the male lead with Sunil Dutt being credited as special appearance. Rakhee- Parveen Babi- Bindiya Goswami were the female lead with Helen and Bindu putting in guest appearances. Johnny Walker headed the supporting cast and Mazhar Khan made his debut in this movie and Kulbhushan Kharbanda got his first villain role, though the movie didn’t do the same wonders for him as Ramesh Sippy’s previous “Sholay” did for Amjad Khan. Salim- Javed were the script writers. The movie was of the typical-Bollywood-masala genre. Sunil Dutt played an upright cop with Amitabh and Shashi as his time-wasting, happy-go-lucky, “naalaayak” brothers who are jolted to being responsible persons when their brother gets gruesomely-murdered. Then the movie follows standard lines of the brothers seeking out the villain with the help of Shatru and entering the villain’s den in disguise as folk dancers etc. in between all this they also find time to con a few people, fall in love with the heroines, have lover’s tiffs (roothna manana etc.) That gives scope for around six/ seven songs in the movie of which two are love songs, one a club dance, etc. etc.

Today’s song is the club dance song which is in the vocals of Asha Bhonsle. The lead actors are present with the one-point mission of relieving Bindu (a maharani of some XYZ riyaasat) of the diamond necklace she is wearing. Bindiya Goswami and Johnny Walker have newly formed a team with Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor whereas Parveen Babi has made her own plans. I remember, at the time when this movie released, there was a lot of debate regarding the opening lines of the song. The version that used to play on the radio made the opener sound like Hema Malini’s voice and what was present on the audio cassettes sounded like Parveen Babi herself. And finally, what appeared onscreen sounded like Asha Bhonsle. At that time, in Binaca Geetmala, Ameen Sayani had remarked on this but now I can’t recall what was the final outcome of the debate on this point. But that need not stop us from enjoying the song today, right?

On the occasion of the 71st birthday of Ramesh Sippy, the maker of movies Andaz, Seeta aur Geeta, Sholay, Shakti, Saagar, Shaan etc. we are having the third song from Shaan. It also helps us in remembering Parveen Babi who passed away on 20th January 2005. The song shows Parveen Babi in what she was best at- a smiling glamourous beauty with luxuriant hair.


Song-Pyaar karne waale pyaar karte hain shaan se (Shaan)(1980) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman
Parveen Babi

Blog Day : 3463 Post No. : 13900

Exactly one month and a day – from the time that we hit the last century milestone. The 13800th song had come on to the blog on 10th Dec. And today, 10th Jan, we arrive at the 13900th station of this musical journey. Many congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. We are into another year now, and folks keeping tabs will agree, the pace of postings, and pace of participations has really picked up in the past 10 days. Or to put a positive twist – in the first 10 days of the year. The mind goes back to the whatsapp message on the group – that new year resolutions are but a matter of interest for about a week into the new year. After that, the crowds on the morning walk are back to the thin normal expected for those early hours of the day. 🙂

But so far, so good – the going has been good in these ten days. And quite truthfully, as of now, we have ready posts from many contributors waiting in the wings to come on board. The limitations are at times either just a specific anniversary or a milestone must be covered, or that a debut and a yippeee song must be part of the day’s menu. On all these counts, we seem to be doing really well so far. But, oh then, it is just 10th Jan as yet. Maybe we will create a new record of determined sustenance this year. Or then, maybe we won’t. Time, as they always say, will tell. 🙂

Welcome all to the 13900th पड़ाव on this long and interesting journey of Hindi film music. On this, 3643rd day of the existence of this blog. For such significant milestones, we conventionally attempt to bring together important milestones for artists or anniversaries of artists. Today, the 10th Jan, is the birth anniversary of two living luminaries of the Hindi film industry.

First we have Basu Chattejee, who turns 87 today. Basu Chatterjee, a name that is synonymous with what is termed as the middle-of-the-road genre of Hindi films. Films that are not big star high budget bonanzas of formulaic composition, and neither they are at the extreme end of the avant-garde. If you think of ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) and ‘Baaton Baaton Mein’ (1979), then that is the genre termed as middle-of-the-road. I remember those were the school days, and it was films like this that none in the family had any objections for us kids to go and watch with friends. For almost a decade, Basu Da’s films were a routine. If it is directed by him, then it is a must watch film.

I have seen almost all of his films as they appeared, during my student years, first school and then college. I was not very familiar with Basu Da as a personality. But his films carried / still carry such an enchanting charisma of natural flow, natural performances, and stories that are closer to real life, but are close in a very endearing sense. The romanticism is nurtured in very natural surroundings. The lead actors are seen waiting at public bus stops, and eating at known regular restaurants. The characters appear to be closer to life – vulnerable, defeat-able, more real than the ‘macho’ heroes of the mainline cinema. The humor is simple, expressed in everyday language. And the story lines – quite natural and rarely getting overdramatic.

That was the cinematic diet that challenged the supremacy of the mainline big budget cinema. Yes, there were other companions of Basu Da on this journey, who share the same penchant for clean and happy entertainment. Of course, Basu Da stands out as the one who has given us wonderful hits year after year, for almost a decade. A quiet sampler of his films from his first decade – ‘Baton Baton Mein’ (1979), ‘Do Ladke Dono Kadke’ (1979), ‘Dillagi’ (1978), ‘Tumhare Liye’ (1978), ‘Swami’ (1977), ‘Safed Jhoot’ (1977), ‘Priyatma’ (1977), ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1977), ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1976), ‘Chitchor’ (1976), ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974), ‘Us Paar’ (1974), ‘Piya Ka Ghar’ (1972), ‘Sara Akash’ (1969). And of course the list does not end here. It continues well into the early 2000s, albeit that it then gets mixed with mainline, big stars films also.

Each of the films listed above merits an individual write up, in as of itself. Many would remember the songless ‘Sara Akash’ – a tale of a newly wed couple and their tribulations of adjusting with each other and with the families. Ascending forward from this, Basu Da has given us delightful fare to watch year in and year out. A dear salute to this master of the understatement of the middle-of-the-road cinema.

The second birthday we celebrate today is Yesudas. At 77 today, exactly 10 years younger to Basu Da, this young man is the owner of that home grown sound of singing that has adorned many a films by Basu Da. We frequently see his presence in Basu Da’s films, starting with ‘Chit Chor’ and ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ both in 1976, almost becoming the ghost voice of Amol Palekar for many of his films. Although he recorded his first song for Hindi cinema in 1971, for the unreleased film ‘Jai Jawaan Jai Kisan’, the first released films for him were the two mentioned, in 1976.

Born in 1940 in Cochin, Yesudas started his singing career with Malayalam films in 1961. He made a siginificant contribution to the films in south Indian regional cinemas, before heading north to Hindi cinema in early 1970s. His debut in the popular Hindi cinema with Basu Da’s films quickly earned him an important recognition as a playback singer of significant merit.

Yesudas has been honored seven times as the Best Playback Singer at the National Awards. About him, music director Ravindra Jain has said that if he ever regains his vision, the first person he wants to see is Yesudas.

Today’s song brings together these two luminaries. The film ‘Apne Paraaye’  (1980) is directed by Basu Da. In the film, Yesudas is the playback voice for Amol Palekar, yet once again. The song is a duet with Asha Bhosle, and on screen this is performed by Amol Palekar and Shabana Azmi.

Ed Note: Our dear Pratap ji has added this information. The story of this film is based on the novel titled ‘Nishkriti’ written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. ‘Nishkriti’ means ‘chhutkaara’.
Ed Note: Dear Arun ji has further added that this novel is the last work of Sharat Chandra, and also his shortest novel. Further, the more appropriate flavor of the meaning of the word ‘Nishkirti’ is ‘deliverance’ or ‘setting free’.

In the story line, the couple and their two children have fallen on hard times, due to machinations and misunderstanding within a family of brothers. Utpal Dutt and Girish Karnad are brothers, both lawyers. Amol Palekar is their younger cousin, who stays in the same household. The envy between the wives of Amol Palekar and Girish Karnad forces Amol to leave the household and go to live in the village home of the family. The misunderstandings between the families reach a high pitch with legal action being initiated by Girish Karnad, at the behest of his wife, against Amol. Eventually, the eldest brother, Utpal Dutt, steps in, to iron out the problems. The family is reunited, with the caveat that Girish Karnad and his wife leave the household and move to another city.

The song is placed in the time when Amol and his family are relegated to the servant’s hut of the family’s village home, and the dishonest and unscrupulous supervisor of their family estate reduces the family to a hand-to-mouth situation. Amol has played the role of the youngest brother who is not perturbed even in the extreme circumstances. In this song, he is telling his ‘mann’, his own self, and also his two sons, that one should be happy and have a song on the lips, no matter what are the difficulties facing oneself.

The sensitive lyrics are from the pen of Yogesh and the softly paced and oh so relaxing composition is tuned by Bhappi Lahidi. A wonder strike that is so different from the ‘disco’ Lahidi that we are more familiar with.

Wishing both Basu Da and Yesudas, many more such celebrations to follow in the coming years.

And once again, congratulations to all members of this bandwagon, on the 139th century song. Surely, we have come a long way. And equally surely, we still have a long way to go. . .  Cheers.


Song – Gaao Mere Mann  (Apne Paraaye) (1980) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhappi Lahidi

Lyrics

gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
job bhi miley yahaan
jitna miley
usi mein khush ho le
poora nahin hota kisi ka
yahaan har sapan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
miley jo gham
to kya hua
bahaaron ke deep saja le
bujhe koi aasha ka diya
to phir se jala le
dukhon se tu haar na raahi
kiye ja jatan
ho oo
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
ro kar chalta hai
hans ke tu chal
chalna tujhe hoga
rukenge na tere liye re
samay ke charan
gaao mere mann
chaahe suraj chamke re chaahe
laga ho grahan
gaao mere mann

गाओ मेरे मन
चाहे सूरज चमके रे चाहे
लगा हो ग्रहण
गाओ मेरे मन
चाहे सूरज चमके रे चाहे
लगा हो ग्रहण
गाओ मेरे मन

जो भी मिले यहाँ
जितना मिले
उसी में खुश हो ले
जो भी मिले यहाँ
जितना मिले
उसी में खुश हो ले
पूरा नहीं होता किसी का
यहाँ हर सपन
गाओ मेरे मन
चाहे सूरज चमके रे चाहे
लगा हो ग्रहण
गाओ मेरे मन

मिले जो ग़म
तो क्या हुआ
बहारों के दीप सजा ले
मिले जो ग़म
तो क्या हुआ
बहारों के दीप सजा ले
बुझे कोई आशा का दिया
तो फिर से जला ले
दुखों से तू हार ना राही
किए जा जतन
हो ओ
गाओ मेरे मन
चाहे सूरज चमके रे चाहे
लगा हो ग्रहण
गाओ मेरे मन

रो कर चलता है
हंस के तू चल
चलना तुझे होगा
रो कर चलता है
हंस के तू चल
चलना तुझे होगा
रुकेंगे ना तेरे लिए रे
समय के चरण
गाओ मेरे मन
चाहे सूरज चमके रे चाहे
लगा हो ग्रहण
गाओ मेरे मन

“Dostaana” (1980) was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Raj Khosla for Dharma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, Helen, Pran, Jaageerdaar, Sajjan, Ifthikhar, K N Singh, Trilok Kapoor, Ruby Meyers, Jagdish Raj, Sudhir, Mc Mohan, Sharat Saena, Sudha Chopda, Paintal (guest appearance), Abhimanyu Sharma, Colonel Kapoor, Mohan Sherry, Birbal, Yunus Parwez, Goga Kapoor, Vikas Anand, Prem Sagar, Keshav Rana, Master Rajesh Valecha, Darshan etc in it.

The movie had Five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. In other words, this movie is lined up for being YIPPEED. I was looking to YIPPEE some other movie today, but I found that I had miscalculated and that movie stil had some other song yet to be covered. Then I looked for another movie and there too I was off by one song. So instead of losing more time, I decided to use this movie which is a low hanging fruit for me, viz I am certain that it is the final song of the movie and secondly its lyrics are readily available with me.

The lyrics of this song has been sent to me by Prakashchandra. The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Most songs of the movie were get-together/ party songs and this song is no exception. This “sentimental” song is lip synced by Zeenat Aman with other lead characters dutifully in attendance.

The songs of this movie were quite popular at that time and continue to be so. Personally I did not like the songs all that much and it is only recently that I have grudgingly started to like them. 🙂

With this song, “Dostaana” (1980) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

PS-Did anyone noticed that Laxmikant Pyarelal have composed for movies titled “Dost”, “Dosti” as well as “Dostaana” ? 🙂 And all these movies are YIPPEED in the blog. 🙂


Song-Kitna aasaan hai kehna bhool jaao (Dostaana)(1980) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
bhool jaao
kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa ho
kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa
o na jaanaa na jaanaa
kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa

bin soche bin samjhe log
maajhi to bann jaate hain
unn ko ye maaloom nahin
ke toofaan bhi aate hain aen aen aen
kitnaa aasaan hai maajhi bann jaanaa
kitnaa mushqil hai paar lagaanaa ho
kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa

haan tumko hai dard badaa
iss duniyaa ki rasmon kaa
ulfat mein jo
khaayeen theen
kyaa hogaa unn kasmon kaa..aaa…aaa
kitnaa aasaan hai waade tod denaa
kitnaa mushqil hai waada nibhaanaa ho
kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa
o na jaanaa na jaanaa
kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao
bhool jaao
bhool jaao

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

Here is the fourth song from “Dostaana” (1980) to appear in the blog. This song is a party song. Amitabh Bachchan, playing a policewala (what else) is present in a get together with Zeenat Aman. His friends request him to sing a song. Zeenat Aman, who knows him as a no nonsense cop is skeptical about his ability to sing a song. She obviously does not known much about the talents that a Hindi movie hero possesses. 🙂

This song then follows, much to the surprise of Zeenat Aman. In this song, certain rather uncharitable observations are made about a scantily clad female out on streets attracting undue attentions from roadside romeos. Hindi movies songs like this should come with a disclaimer that the resemblence or otherwise of the haseena described in the song with the leading lady may or may not be a coincidence. 🙂

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The picturisation shows Amitabh Bachchan lip syncing the song with Zeenat Aman and many others also present.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra long back.


Song-Bahut khoobsoorat jawaan ek ladki (Dostaana)(1980) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

bahut khoobsoorat jawaan ek ladki
kukoo
sadak pe akeli chali ja rahi thhi
fakat naam ko usne pahne thhe kapde
ajanta ki moorat nazar aa rahi thhi
nazar aa rahi thhi
koi manchala us’se takra gaya
koi manchala us’se takra gaya
mere doston
tum karo faisla
khata kiski hai
kisko den ham saza
mere doston
tum karo faisla
khata kiski hai
kisko den ham saza

hua haadsa jo
wo kaise na hota
ke banke qayaamat wo nikli thhi ghar se
wo nikli thhi ghar se
na dekhe koi to sharaafat hai uski
jo dekhe to kuchh bhi chhupe na nazar se
chhupe na nazar se
koi diljala muft maara gaya
koi diljala muft maara gaya
mere doston
tum karo faisla
khata kiski hai
kisko den ham saza
mere doston
tum karo faisla
khata kiski hai
kisko den ham saza

haseen to hamesha haseen thhe magar
haseen to hamesha haseen thhe magar,
kabhi raaston pe nikalte na thhe
badalte thhe wo bhi kai roop lekin
naye roz fashion badalte na thhe
wo badalte na thhe
gaya ek to doosra aa gaya
gaya ek to doosra aa gaya
mere doston
tum karo faisla
khata kiski hai
kisko den ham saza
mere doston
tum karo faisla
khata kiski hai
kisko den ham saza

Hullo to Atuldom

‘Saajan Mere Main Saajan Ki’ is a movie released in 1980. It was directed by Hiren Nag and produced by Ramraj Nahata. It had a star cast of Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, Raj Kiran, Rameshwari, Kaajal Kiran, Shashikala, Dina Pathak, Madan Puri etc. Songs were written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have never seen the movie and so I have no idea what it was all about.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Today’s post is under instructions from my husband- Peevesie’s Dad. Oh yes, he is a silent-satulite (a term coined by team Atulites when referring to spouses of Atulites, the term has no geographical or scientific connotation and will be found only in Atulite-lingo 🙂 ). He had asked me to write a post after we returned from a pilgrimage of Sabarimala, which is the abode of Swami Ayyappa. And as far as possible I fulfil every farmaish/ request of his (actually the children, Peevesie more than her brother, rag the two of us for going out of our way to fulfil each other’s requests- there have been no demands between the two of us only requests).

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

So, we are on that date of the year when we write a special post for a very special person. We have two posts by kids of the 70s who grew up listening to the works of this special person. For once I waited to see what these two are going to say before I pen my own thoughts. This is because I have come to realise that the three of us love the same things about this person- his multi talents- singing (first and foremost), comedy (acting), direction, music direction and he has also written a few songs. We are his fans and he was said to be a huge fan of K.L. Saigal. His aim was to sing like Saigal.

In India, we are often required to attend get togethers (formal/ officials as well as informal/ unofficial etc). Singing of a few film songs is almost always a part of these gatherings, which are sung by enthusiastic singers and their performances are followed by polite clappings.

The songs that are sung on these gatherings are mostly from the golden era originally sung by legends. I often think of that era when these legends were still around me. I would often imagine a gathering where songs were sung not by the enthusiastic singers but by the singers who originally sang these songs. Just imagine participating in a programme where Rafi songs are being sung live by none other than Rafi himself !

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 01
—————————————————-

Thanks to the help of Researchist Sadanandbhai and few more quotes from here and there, this is going to be quite different to my usual writing of short preface to the presentation of the song.

In my series ‘Genius of Jaidev’, I have presented about 60 filmy songs of Jaidevji, which were not covered on our musical Blog. I am unable to locate few more film songs of Jaidev ji, which are obscure, as I am a poor RESEARCHER. (In spite of the fact that I worked for 40 years in a RESEARCH Institute.)
