“Waardaat”(1981) was produced and directed by Ravikant Nagaich for Gopi Enterprises, Bombay. This movie had Mithun Chakraborty, Kajal Kiran, Shakti Kapoor, Kalpana Iyer, Iftekhar,Birbal, Kesto Mukherjee, Jagdeep, Prem Bedi, Manorama, Praveen Paul, Thyagraj, Randhir, Dinesh Hingoo, Prem Kumar, Sharat etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. They were sung by five singers.

Today (7 november 2019) is the 71st birthday of Usha Uthup. On this occasion, here is a song from “Waardaat”(1981). This song is sung by Usha Uthup and Bappi Lahiri. Ramesh Pant is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Kalypana Iyer and Mithun Chakraborty.

Mithun Chakrborty enjoyed vast popularity among the chawanni chhaap movie goers of those days :). Such audiences were to be found all over India, and more so in eastern part of the country. Front stall movieoers of Bihar (including present day Jharkhand) “ditched” their own Shatrughan Sinha and became fans of Mithun Chakraborty. 🙂

I was among the small minority who did not like Mithun Chakraborty movies. 🙂

If teenagers of Maharashtra celebrated Ganpati festival, then teenagers in Eastern parts celebrated Saraswati Puja in a similarly grand way. Playing hindi movie music in these Saraswati Puja pandals used to be a major activity of these saraswati Puja festivities. Operating the record player and thus deciding which songs to play used to be a much sought after task. I had the proud privilege of being the record player operator in early 1980s at Ranchi. 🙂 I recall playing “disco” songs of those days, including the song under discussion. 🙂

Most Saraswati Puja organisers used to be academically challenged. They would bring their (largely untouched) textbooks in the pandal to be kept at the feet of goddess Saraswati, hoping that pooja thus performed would magically transfer the contents of those text books into their brains. 🙂

With this song, “Waardaat”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo to Atuldom

Its been a few weeks since I wrote a post. I have missed the birthdates of a few of my favourites. I won’t put the blame of these misses on the festival season as then we will have to excuse Atulji his numerous blank dates on the blog which we don’t do; we expect at least one post per day from him.

I get notifications on my mailbox from one of the many music compilation sites which I had stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t open mail notifications that often specially from this site but today I did. It had songs which I had not heard in years. Today’s list began with the song “my name is Suzy” from “An Evening in Paris” and then played a few numbers in various genres.

One of the songs made me sit up. I had never heard this song which was in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I quickly googled for it and found that it was a song penned by Amit Khanna and Bappi Lahiri was the composer. And no, it was not a disco song or nor was it what we generally expect from the Bappi Lahiri baton. I heard it twice and then went looking for its video. I had another shock. It was picturised on Helen and no it was not a typical Helen-style item or cabaret. The expressions she gave in that song reminded me of another Helen- Bappi Lahiri song.

All this put me on a search mode for the details of the song which I heard today. One thing it did was remind me of the song from “Paanch Qaidi”- “Jeena to hai par ae dil kahaan”. But here are the details of the song- it is from a movie called “Josh” which was released in 1981. It starred Vidya Sinha, Helen, Sarika, Sheetal, Amjad Khan, Anil Dhawan, Raj Kiran, Deven Verma, Shakti Kapoor etc. The movie was directed by Raj Sippy. It was his second film after “Inkaar”. The common factor in the two movies being Amjad Khan, Vidya Sinha, Helen and Gurbachan. From what I read about the movie on IMDB.com Amjad Khan played a central character and Vidya Sinha had a role which was different from what she was known to play. If the movie had been successful, we would have had all the main actors in “Hatke” roles but that was not to be.

After hearing the song, I remembered that November 21st was the birthday of our dear Helen. She turned 81 yesterday (21 october 2019). Here is wishing her a healthy life with all her friends and dear ones around her. Here is the song which I liked hope all the followers of the blog like it too.


Song-Sab kuchh to hai sab kuchh toh thha(Josh)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Amit Khanna, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

Today (4 october 2019) is the 67th birthday of Shailendra Singh (DoB 4 october 1952). It is so unbelievable to realise that he is 67 years old. It appears only yesterday that he had made his debut as a playback singer in “Bobby”(1973) as a 20 year old playback singer !

On this occasion, here is a song from “Aapas Ki Baat”(1981). This song is sung by Shailendra Singh and Lata. Dayanath Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anu Malik.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Raj Babbar and Poonam Dhillon.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

She started her playback career in 1940s and she went on to sing till early 2000s, viz for seven decades ! Mindboggling indeed.

She sang just under 5700 songs in Hindi movies according to our estimate. The blog has 3475 of her songs and so we are one of the rare places on internet where so many of her songs can be accessed at one place.

Another 2000 odd of her songs remain uncovered. it is a matter of time before her remaining songs (that are available) will also find representation in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dard”(1981). “Dard”(1981) was produced by Shyam Sundar Shivdasani and directed by Ambreesh Sangal fo Murghan Enterprises, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon, Om Shivpuri, Krishn Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shashi Kiran, Madhup Sharma, Kamaldeep, Harjeet, Poornima Jairam, Mazhar Khan (2), Master Raju etc wih special appearance by Ranjeeta.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Dard”(1981) to appear in the song. This song is sung by Lata. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The song is not lip synced by Hema Malini rather it gets plays in the background.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah

Sanwar sanwar gayee
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Bikhraa hai kaajal fizaa mein
Bheegi bheegi hai shaamein
Boondon ki rimjhim se jaagi
Aag thhandi hawaa mein
Aajaa sanam
ye haseen aag ham
Len dil mein basaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Aanchal kahaan
main kahaan hoon
Ye mujhe hosh kyaa hai
Ye bekhudi toone di hai
Pyaar kaa ye nashaa hai
Sun le zaraa
saaz e dil gaa rahaa
Hai naghmaa teraa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Kaliyon ki ye sej mehke
Raat jaage milan ki
Kho jaayein dhadkan mein teri
Dhadkanen mere mann ki
Aa paas aa
teri har saans mein
Main jaaun samaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah

Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa

——————————
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बनाके आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

बिखरा है काजल फिजा में
भीगी भीगी है शामें
बूंदों की रिमझिम से जागी
आग ठंडी हवा में
आजा सनम
ये हसीं आग हम
ले दिल में बसा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

आँचल कहाँ
मैं कहाँ हूँ
ये मुझे होश क्या है
ये बेखुदी तूने दी है
प्यार का ये नशा है
सुन ले ज़रा
साज़ ए दिल गा रहा
है नगमा तेरा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

कलियों की ये सेज महके
रात जागे मिलन की
खो जाएँ धड़कन में तेरी
धडकने मेरे मन की
आ पास आ
तेरी हर सांस में
मैं जाऊं समा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बना के आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The previous post in this series was delayed by about a week or so. And today’s post, I have been saving this medley song to write about this person, but not sure about which date to bring it on. A chance reminder three days ago, brought up this song and this post, almost immediately.  But then, other priorities intervened as usual, and this post is late by three days. 🙂

The person I write about, in this post, is Ravi Baswani. Yes, the sidekick companion of Naseeruddin Shah in the cult classic ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ of the year 1983.  Coincidental that the posts for these two friends are coming up one after the other. And both are in the same series, and both posts are a medley of songs from the earlier years. One difference is the nature and the composition of the medley of songs – I will come to this point again a little later in the write up. And the second difference – for Naseer we celebrated a birthday anniversary, but for Ravi, the occasion is his remembrance day. Yes – 27th July in the year 2010, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest, quite unexpectedly, and was no more. He was in Haldwani, on the way back to Delhi from Nainital, where he had gone for location scouting for his first full length feature film, as a director. In the prime of his health, and on the top with his career in cinema and theatre – leaves a regret in the mind, that it was not a time to go.

Ravi was born on 29th Sept in the year 1946, in the city of Bulandshehar in UP. His father, Balram Singh, was a doctor by profession, and his mother, Shingaar Kaur, a homemaker. Practically everyone who knows him or knows about him, always presume him to be a Sindhi – Baswani <> Vaswani and so on.  Interestingly, he is not. He belongs to a Jat family, whose correct family name is Baswan. How this surname got transformed into Baswani is an interesting tale by itself. It is a case of a clerical zeal.

As per his own description, his father applied for a passport sometimes in the late 1930s. His application form was processed by a Bangla person. It just came to his mind and he decided that the surname ‘Baswan’ is spelt incorrectly. He assumed in his mind that the correct surname should be Vaswani – a name that one is more familiar with. And being a Bengali speaking person, he decided that the spelling of the surname should be Baswani – i.e. the Bangla version of the pronunciation of Vaswani. The passport got processed, and Ravi’s father’s name was transformed to Balram Singh Baswani for good. All for the zeal of a processing official to set right the name of the applicant. As his father appeared for and got selected for study of medicine, his name was taken from the passport as a reference. And surely enough, the doctor’s degree pronounced his name as Baswani. Beyond that point, his father then made no attempts to get the name rectified. And Baswani got carried into the next generation. Of course, all his uncles and cousins were not so affected – the rest of the clan still continues to be Baswan.

He further says that he could have made a choice to revert to his original family name, when he started his filmi career. But then, when he signed up for his debut film – ‘Chashm e Baddoor’, his father had then passed away just a few weeks earlier. Somehow emotionally he felt compelled not to desert his father’s surname, and decided to keep it.  And that is the name he signed up for life then.

The family moved to Delhi in 1946-47 and settled down in the Connaught Place area. Ravi’s education happened at St Columba’s School and Kirori Mal College (Delhi University). As per his own declaration, there is nothing in his lineage before him remotely connected with stage and acting. But inside him, there was an actor that expressed itself, both at school and at college. He made his debut on stage at the age of six, in a school play. As per his own admission, he fell in love with acting and dramas during his years at the Kirori Mal College.

The dramatics society at the Kirori Mal College, called simply ‘The Players’ is one of the most vibrant, and famous theatre groups in Delhi. Founded by the legendary dramatist, Frank Thakurdas in 1957, this theatre group boasts of some of the biggest names in theatre and cinema, who learned their craft here. The list will impress you – Amitabh Bachchan, Dinesh Thakur, Shakti Kapoor, Satish Kaushik, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, and many more names of the current TV and cinema scene. During his college days, he won the Delhi University’s Best Actor award, at the university lever drama competition.

Ravi says that of course, he had no intention of pursuing acting as a career.  After college, he quite dutifully joined the sales department of a large company. He worked there for two years. During the later part of these two years, something happened. Ravi came down with a case of jaundice, which he himself attributes to excess of alcohol, and was resting up, away from work. During this time, he went to see a play one day. The play was the iconic ‘Evam Indrajeet’, by the famous dramatist Badal Sircar. It was directed by Shyamanand Jalan and Kalyan Chatterjee played the title role. The play is based on the legend of Sisyphus from the Greek mythology. Sisyphus is cursed with the task of pushing and rolling a large rock up a hill. When he reaches the top, the rock rolls down the other side, and he starts all over again, pushing the boulder up the hill now from the other side. This lifelong curse simply continues forever without any respite.

Ravi says, it suddenly struck him right between the eyes – that is what his life was all about. And he asked this question of himself – is that all that there is to life? As soon as he was well enough to go the office, he went into his manager’s room and tendered his resignation, bidding a good farewell to a budding corporate career, once for all.

With no plan for the future in mind, and very little finances to support himself, he took on free lancing in the Delhi theatre circle. He remembers with fascination, the privilege that he had to work with stalwarts of the theatre world such as BM Shah, Mohan Upreti, Om Shivpuri, MK Raina, Joy Michael, Bansi Kaul and Ebrahim Alkazi!

Realizing that acting alone would not support a life, he also started training himself to be stage designer and director. During this time, he got together with some other free lancers like himself and set up a theatre group which was, quite interestingly named Non-Group. In a matter of a short time, this group became a force to reckon with in Delhi’s theatre circuit. Their crowning achievement was organizing non-stop 24 hour play festivals on the leap day (29th Feb) in the years 1976 and 1980, which included dance, drama, music, films and the fine arts.

Ravi notes that the turning point in this wayward journey as a freelancer came his way close to the end of 1970s. Naseeruddin Shah, a very old and close friend on the theatre circuit, landed in Delhi with the script of the film ‘Sparsh’ (1980) in his hands. As Ravi went over the script with Naseer, he writes that he was convinced – here was a National Award in the making for Naseer. His gut feel did pan out as reality a couple of years down the road, as Naseer bagged his first National Award as the best actor, for his sensitive portrayal of a blind man’s challenges in the apathetic world of the normal people.

Ravi writes that after going through the script, he was quite sure it had no role for him, but being the buddy of Naseer, he would have been quite content to even be his light boy. As the things unfolded, Sai Paranjpye, the producer director of this film, assigned the task of props design and management for the film to Ravi. This was his first real introduction to the world of cinema. The one great positive outcome of this endeavor was establishing a great relationship with Sai Paranjpye. So much that when Sai started work on ‘Chashm e Baddoor’ (1981), this time around Ravi had a very meaty role – his debut in the film world, in front of the camera this time.

His role in ‘Chashm e Baddoor’ was nominated for the Filmfare’s Best Comedian award. This was followed up with two more nominations in 1983, for – oh so quite expectedly – ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ and ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’. He bagged the award for ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’ in face of stiff competition against himself (for ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’), and Satish Shah (for ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’). That does create a record of sorts – three nominations for Filmfare award for the first three films of his career; quite so.

Quite early one might say, but he moved into the small screen in 1984 with the comedy serial ‘Idhar Udhar’. And very soon, turned a director for TV serials with ‘Hakke Bakke’ in 1988, and more with ‘Kisse Miyan Biwee Ke’ and ‘Panchhi’. And then on to Sony channel with ‘Just Mohabbat’ and ‘Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin’.

Twenty five feature films in about three decades. He picks the following as his best performances – ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’ (1983), ‘Yaatna’ (1985), ‘Monsoon’ (2005) and ‘Yun Hota To Kya Hota’ (2006). He worked with children theatre a lot – about 400 plays he directed for children of ages from 5 to 17. Best of my work, he says – it left him being a child, permanently.

And then, at the peak of his active life, and in the midst of numerous projects, he was gone – just like that, nine years ago.

Coming to the song – another unlisted repeat song, or rather a medley of songs, from the film ‘Chashm e Baddoor’. This film is one of the most memorable comedies in my listings. It is funny tale of three very close friends, college going students, who live through the most normal college going life and activities for singles of the male species i.e. pursuing girls to strike a relationship. The three friends – Siddharth (Farooque Sheikh), Jomo (Ravi Baswani) and Omi (Rakesh Bedi), share an apartment. There are fun capers of sharking cigarettes on loan from the corner pan-beedi waala (role played by Saeed Jafrey), biking around aimlessly – three on a mobike, efforts to catch attention of ladies, who would be less than interested in their types, etc. Then one day, a new family moves into the neighborhood. There is a young lady Neha in that family (role played by Deepti Naval). And once having seen her, they, or at least the two – Omi and Jomo, are desperate to contact her, and try to build a friendship. With great difficulty they are able to locate her address. And then there is a wager. They will each make an effort to strike a friendship with the lady, and may the best man win.

Omi goes in first, he is mistaken for plumber, asked to make plumbing repairs. Of course he does not know the right end of the tap or the wrench, and has to escape from the house with his dignity and physical features intact.

Jomo goes in second. He masquerades as the younger brother of a Bombay film producer who has come to Delhi in search of fresh talent. He gets into the house, but his outcome is worse than Omi – watch the video clip.

The fun part is that both of them, on return to their penthouse apartment (called a barsaati in Delhi – a single isolated room on the terrace of a house), both of them spin a false yarn on how they were able to impress the lady, and have a initial go ahead for a relationship.

The clip that I have uploaded, gives the Jomo episode from start to finish – the way he loses his dignity and also physical features, and the tall tale that he tells to his friends on return. This clip is a favorite – vintage Ravi Baswani at his best.

And in the bogus and fictitious tale that he spins for his friends, he falls back on a string of old Hindi film songs, to create and convey the lovey-dovey mood of success in setting up a friendly relation with the lady.

Unlike the previous episode, where we had a typical set of songs – all Rafi-Shammi Kapoor songs – this medley has a mix of male, female and duet songs, with multiple singing voices. The treat in this medley is Ravi Baswani, taking on the mantle of Dilip Kumar, Rehman, Joy Mukherjee, Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Sanjeev Kumar, Feroze Khan, Dev Anand, and Sunil Dutt – all short cameos of a few seconds each. My personal favorite is the imitation of Dev Anand – one just has to see to believe it.

Closing this episode and also bringing to close the brief bio on this multi-talented actor and comedian – he never pursued a career. It was the career that kept hounding after him all his life. Alas, gone too soon. Good bye Ravi. . .

[Author’s Note: A fair part of the material for the write up on Ravi Baswani is taken from Ravi’s personal website, which, interestingly, is still active.]

Today 27th June 2019, is the eightieth birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman (27th June, 1939 – 4th Jan, 1994). We fondly remember him on this occasion and will be always thankful to him for giving us all those great nostalgic songs, great music and many everlasting gems.

As I was looking for a special song for this occasion and while going through his filmography, I decided to select a song penned by Nida Fazli. I thought they worked together in very few films so I was interested to introduce a new movie and I finally zeroed on this lesser known movie ‘Mangal Sutra’ (1981). I think even the song of today is a very lesser known and this might be because of this movie going unnoticed then. Even the filmography of RDB on ‘wiki’ does not have this movie in that list. (Since I could not prepare the details of RDB-Nida Fazli movies together I am deferring it for a post in the future).

‘Mangal Sutra’ was directed by B Vijay for Gaurav Films International, Madras. It was produced by Ravi Kumar. Mrs. Chandrika Shah and Mrs. Era Kalra were Associate Producers of this movie. It had Rekha, Anant Nag, Prema Narayan, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, and Om Shivpuri. The supporting cast included Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Rajendranath, BM Vyas, Chand Usmani, Jayshree T, Meena T, Guddi, Jezbel, Swaraj, NS Bedi, Shankar Singh, Vinod, Neeta, Sharma, Jailata, Baby Reema, Viju Khote and Madhu. Shashi Puri makes a guest appearance in the movie. And this movie introduced Master Vineet.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by MD Sundar. Dialogues were written by Snehlata Verma. Editing of this movie was done by P Bhakthavathsalam. Vijaykumar Raichura was the Associate Director of this movie. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.03.1981.

This movie had total five songs penned by Kavi Pradeep (one song) and Nida Fazli (four songs). Asha Bhonsle, Bhupinder Singh, Dilraj Kaur, Lata Mangeshkar, Meena and SP Balasubramaniam had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Music for this film was composed by RD Burman.

One movie by the same title was also made in 1947 (as per note in HFGK-Vol-VI), however no songs from this movie seem to be available as of now.

In the movie this song happens to be on the ‘suhaag raat’ of Anant Nag and Rekha. When I listened to this song for preparation of this post I remember to have listen it somewhere earlier but I had forgotten it. This song is nice duet and as mentioned above in the movie it is on the ‘milan ki raat’ where the newlywed couple sings this song. And for that matter I think this song is for all couples even if they are not ‘just newly wed’, they can enjoy it on anniversary or anniversaries or even on the ‘silver –jubilee’ of their marriage 🙂 . The song is sung by my favourite singers Asha Bhonsle and Bhupinder Singh.

It is unbelievable that twenty five years have passed since our beloved RD Burman has left us in 1994. He left us in January 1994. I was posted at Kota then. I got married in June (on his birth anniversary) and I remember the first Hindi movie me and wife watched together at Kota was ‘1942 – A Love Story’. . .

Once again thanking Pancham Da for the lovely, beautiful, exciting music and moments its music has given to us. Let us now enjoy today’s song. With this song the movie ‘Mangalsutra’ (1981) makes its debut on the blog.

“Kahaani Ek Chor Ki”(1981) was produced by Balubhai Shah and directed by S Ramnathan for Deepak International, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had Jeetendra, Vinod Mehra, Mausami Chatterji, Laxmi, Nirupa Roy, Aruna Irani, Asrani, Madan Puri, A K Hangal, Ranjan, Master Titu, Ranjeet, Bhagwan, Chaandrashekhar, Sundar, Jairaj, Shukla, Major Anand, Mukri, Viju Khote, Yusuf, Raju, Ratna, Madhumati Sharma, Uma Khosla, Manik Chaudhary, Master Laddoo, Chiku etc in it.

This movie, which I had never heard of, despite being in the midst of movie watching spree, had four songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung mainly by Kishore Kumar, with a few words by Hemlata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

The song is ip synced by Vinod Mehra (disguised as a bearded old man) and Laxmi (I hope I have identified her correctly. This song , picturised in a public garden,is apparently a ruse meant to sow seeds of doubt in the mind of Asrani, who is also visible in the songs towards the end.

With this song, “Kahaani Ek Chor Ki”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Karishma ye kya meri jaan ho gaya (Kahaani Ek Chor Ki)(1981) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Hemlata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

karishma ye kya meri jaan ho gaya
karishma ye kya meri jaan ho gaya
tujhse nazren milin

tujhse nazren milin
main jawaan ho gaya
ae buddhe chal hatt
karishma ye kya meri jaan ho gaya
karishma ye kya meri jaan ho gaya
haan

aisi bijli hai tu

jo bhi chhoo le jhatka khaaye
main bhi jhatka kha gaya
jaaneman
aisi titli hai tu
are aisi titli hai tu
tere peechhe main jo bhaaga
barson peechhe aa gaya
aaya thha kis kaam se
kar baitha kya kaam
raam naam ki umar mein
tera hua ghulaam
haaye haaye
budhaape mein bhi imtahaa ho gaya
arre arre arre arre
budhaape mein bhi imtahaa ho gaya
ho ho ho

ghar ka de de pata
ae jaani ghar ka de de pata
yoon raste mein chhed khaani karte
aaye hai sharam
meri jaan maaf karna khaata
maaf karna khata
dhandha khota sahi
lekin banda dil ka hai naram
main logon ki mushqilen
karta hoon aasaan
dhan ke haathon bik gaya
na bechoon imaan
dekho jabhi to khuda
meharbaan ho gaya
hahaaha
waah bade miyaan

dekho khuda meharban ho gaya
tujhse nazren milin
main jawaan ho gaya
tujhse nazren milin
main jawaan ho gaya

“Kudrat”(1981) was produced by B S Khanna and directed by Chetan Anand for Trishakti Productions, Bombay.

This multi starrer movie had Rajkumar, Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Priya Rajwansh, Aruna Irani, Deven Verma, Om Shivpuri, Keshto Mukheri, Shammi, Sapru, Kumar Aditya, Sundar, Vandana Shashtry,, Kalpana aiyyar, Tom Alter, Jolie, Daramveer, Ved Goswami, Raja Duggal, Darshan, Ratna, Rajrani, Ashok Khanna, Sunil Raahi, Pinchoo Kapoor, A K Hangal, Satyen Kappoo, Raj Mehra etc in it.

The movie was a multistarrer but most stars were were past their primes for one reason or the other. So this movie failed to attract me to the movie hall. Even today, I have not watched this movie.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past. The first three songs were covered in early days of the blog viz in 2008 and 2009. The next song was covered in 2013. The penultimate song was covered in 2018.

Here is the details of the songs from the movie that have been covered in the past :-

1 Hamen tumse pyaar kitna Multiple version song 377 12-Dec-08
2 Toone o rangeele kaisa jaadoo kiya 846 4-Mar-09
3 Chhodo sanam kaahe ka gham 1219 4-May-09
4 Dukh sukh ki har ik maala multiple version song 8331 11-Jul-13
5 Saawan nahin bhaadon nahin 14307 27-Apr-18

The eighth and final song from “Kudrat”(1981) is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a get together piano song where an actor (Priya Rajwansh) in this case plays a piano and sings simultaneously- an Herculean task, but people watching Hindi movies have come to regard it as quite an easy task, a baayen haath ka khel. 🙂

The picturisation also shows other main actors viz Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna etc. The song culminates when Hema Malini, accompanied by Vinod Khanna, makes a grand entry to the get together.

With this song, all the songs of “Kudrat”(1981) get covered and “Kudrat”(1981) joins the list of movis that are YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Sajti hai yoon hi mahfil (Kudrat)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

Today’s song is from the 1981 movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan’. And let us start from where I left in my last post with the song of the same movie here.

The movie starts with a phone ringing in a ‘central hall’ 🙂 of a ‘spacious’ bungalow, and as the phone bell is ringing, servants from all corners of the house run to pick it up. However, they are stopped by PA (Deven Verma),
‘thehro telephone ham uthhayenge. Ham bade maalik ke PA hain yane ke Personal Assistant’.

From the other side Bade Maalik (of course Jeetendra) calling at home from a Bussiness tour (I think) informs his PA about Chhote Maalik’s (double Jeetendra) birthday today and instructs him to arrange a ‘shaandaar party’ and call all ‘milnewaale’ to the party in evening. He also tells his PA that he will be reaching by the evening flight. I don’t know why his PA gets surprised and asked ‘Hawaai jahaz se?

‘kya kahaa ham nahin jaa sakte’, what do you mean? that is how Bade Maalik appears on screen, when he is informed by one of his assistants that flight tickets are not available in any of the services, so Bade Maalik tells him that
‘aaj hamaare bete ka janamdin hai, aur aaj ke din ham duniya ke kisi bhi kone mein ho, ghar zaroor pahunchte hain’,

‘I am sorry Sir, aaj ki flight mein ek bhi seat khaali nahin hai’

‘agar seat khaali nahin to ‘Charter a plane’ …

At home the PA is looking for Chhote Maalik as Bade Maalik has left by plane for home, but where is Chhote Maalik? all servants in the house report the PA that Chhote Maalik is nowhere neither in his room nor in the garden ??

And here we have Chhote Maalik Ravikant (Ravi Kapoor or Jeetendra for us 🙂 ) celebrating his birthday with singing and dancing with his girlfriend and others in a club …

While he performs and entertain us on his birthday with this song dance performance in this movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’, in real life, we also wish him a very happy birthday and peaceful and healthy life ahead.

***

Today 7th April 2019 is the seventy-seventh (born on 07.04.1942) birth anniversary of actor Jeetendra.
When I thought of presenting the song under discussion, I was doubtful whether I would be able to write with the same passion as I display for other actors like say Rajesh Khanna. But then I have written on actors other than Rajesh Khanna who are part of the ‘nostalgia’ for me
of my growing years’, when we watched movies without being fans of any specific actor/actress. There were several movies of Jeetendra that I had watched during my growing up years and I thank him for the entertainment, the beautiful memories and many lovely songs from his movies.

I remember I watched many of Jeetendra movies with my Parents and elder ones in the family like Uncles. Those were family drama movies and they were mostly from the producers of South. Here I would mention movies like ‘Farz-1967’, ‘Jeene Ki Raah-1969’, ‘Waaris-1969’, ‘Humjoli-1970’, ‘Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari-1971’, ‘Banphool-1971’ which I vaguely remember some of them. Then movies like ‘Badaltey Rishtey-1978’, ‘Swarg Narak-1978’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane-1979’, ‘The Burning Train-1980’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’.

I watched many of his movies with brothers and cousins in summer vacations and these were mainly the multi-starrer movies of the seventies. And these were movies like ‘Nagin-1976’, ‘Dharam Veer-1977’, ‘Dildaar-1977’, ‘Nalayak-1978’, ‘Aatish-1979’,’Jaani Dushman-1979’ (this I watched alone), ‘Khoon Aur Paani-1981’, ‘Samrat-1982’, ‘Udhar Ka Sindoor-1976’, ‘Kinaara-1977’, ‘Priyatama-1977’, ‘Jal Mahal-1980’, ‘Nishaana-1980’ (which I must have watched during end seventies or early eighties)

This trend continued till ‘Himmatwala’. It was round this time that ‘Souten’ and ‘Avtaar’ were released and then it was mainly Rajesh Khanna for me.

Nebertheless I remember that my grandmother, aunts and others tenants in our building wanting to watch ‘Tohfaa-1984’ had asked me to do the advance booking for this movie and so I watched this movie too.

Around the same time, I watched his ‘Farz-1967’, ‘Khilona-1970’, ‘Ek Bechaara-1972’. I watched ‘Maqsad-1984’ because of Rajesh Khanna.

After that as I grew up and was already working, I watched his ‘Geet Gaya Pathhrone-1964’, ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta-1967’. The other reason watching for ‘Geet Gaya Pathhrone’ was it was V. Shantaram’s movie. Then I watched his ‘Caravan-1971’, and all this was during 1985-1988. I also watched ‘Pataal Bhairavi-1985’ for the fantasy factor in it.

I think I had watched ‘Swarg Se Sunder-1986’, ‘Locket-1986’, ‘Souten Ki Beti-1989’,

I think I watched ‘Parichay-1972’, ‘Aasha-1980’, ‘Karmyogi-1978’ either on TV or VCR much later than above.

I must have watched some of his other movies either in theatre or on TV, like ‘Mere Hamsafar’, ‘Dharti Kahe Pukaar Ke’ etc. but don’t remember them.

Also, I must have watched some of his earlier movies or part of them on TV but I don’t remember.

I don’t remember to have watched any Jeetendra movies after that all these years except when I watched ‘Dil Aur Deewaar-1977’ last year on an online facility and on my mobile phone. This was for post with a song from this movie and since I had nostalgia about this movie’s name but had not watched it in those years.

Watching movies then was always enjoyable and it would be interesting now to watch his movies by conscious selection which I have missed, movies like ‘Mere Huzoor-1968’ (which I don’t remember to have watched) or ‘Boond Jo Ban Gaye Moti-1967’, ‘Jigri Dost-1969’ (of which couple of songs are my favorites) and of course ‘Naya Rastaa-1970’ which has songs penned by Sahir Saab.

‘Deedaar-E-Yaar-1982’ is another movie which I think I should watch. And then ‘Apnapan-1977’, ‘Maang Bharo Sajna-1980’, ‘Arpan-1983’, ‘Nishaan-1983’ (for Kaka), and ‘Mehndi Rang Laayegi-1982’ …

Many more to the wish list … and it is my mistake if I have missed to add any of his ‘must-watch’ movies in the above list, like I remember my seniors liked ‘Meri Aawaaz Suno-1981’ very much then, which I am yet to watch.

Now we come back to today’s song which is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip-synced by Jeetendra. Reena Roy is accompanying him in this performance and we can see many others in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics are by Santosh Anand and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past. Here is the list of these songs already covered in the blog:

1 Tera saath hai to Multiple version song 915 17-Mar-09
2 O meri chammak challo 970 25-Mar-09
3 Megha re megha re 6412 10-Aug-12
4 In haseen waadiyon se 14933 17-Mar-19

This is the final song from this movie ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ and with this ‘Pyaasa Saawan-1981’ has all its songs covered on the blog. 🙂

This song is the 800th song of Laxmikant Pyarelal as music directors.

Once again wishing Jeetendra a very happy birthday today, let us now enjoy this song …

Hullo to Atuldom

Today’s song/ post is to wish a Doe-eyed beauty on her birthday. At the when she was a busy movie star – starring in Bengali and Hindi movies – I had no clue about who she was, where she was from etc, and I didn’t care to find as at that stage in my life I was more of a watcher and not researcher. I have started trying to find things about the people who I used to like back then only now and I am amazed by the things I read and see.

So, today’s Bengali beauty was a convent school teacher to start of, who also tried her hand at modelling, participated in the Femina Miss India contest of 1971 and was judged Miss India World 1971. She went on to represent India at the Miss World 1971 and Queen of the Pacific pageant held in Australia where she was 1st runner-up. She also happens to be Anitha Guha’s niece. I am talking of the beautiful Prema Narayan- who made a name for herself playing Dhanno in the Uttam Kumar -Sharmila Tagore starrer “Amanush”. She was mostly cast as a dancer/ vamp or supporting roles with a western touch to her character. We remember her in songs of “Armaan”. “Ponga Pandit” etc as a person whose eyes are full of mischief.

“Barsaat Ki EkRaat” was a Shakti Samanta produced and directed 1981 release. It starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee, Utpal Dutt, Amjad Khan, Abhi Bhattacharya, Prema Narayan, Sujit Kumar, AsitSen etc. Music was by R. D. Burman& Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. Songs were in the voices of Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle. This is the 3rd song from the movie on our blog. The first two were posted in October 2009. Here is this “in the villain’s den” “disguise song” (please don’t recognise Amitabh Bachchan) with Prema Narayan and chorus trying to distract Amjad Khan so that sneak into Amjad’s den; probably looking for someone. (can’t remember need to see the movie again for that)

Wishing Prema Narayan good health and good times on her birthday today (4 april 2019).

Editor’s note: This song is the one thousandth song of Anand Bakshi is the blog. It is easily the most low key thousandth song post for an artist in the blog. Anand Bakshi becomes the seventh artist and third lyricist to complete 1000 songs in the blog.

manchali ho manchali
kaun si hai ye gali
