#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

A fortnight back, our ‘Sampaadak-Shri’ Shri Atul ji (if you are in Gujarat you will find this reference very common 🙂 ) posted a song for the ‘full moon occurrence’ which was on 06th January’2023. The song though appeared three days later on 09.01.2023. This song was ‘raat chaandni samay suhaana hai’ from the ‘1960’ movie ‘Basant’.

Today we have the ‘darkest night’ i.e. ‘amaavsya’ and I have a song for this occasion too :). I am presenting a song ‘celebrating the kaali raat’. That reminds me these lines ‘ab kisko kyaa milaa ye muqaddar ki baat hai’ from the song ‘ek chaand aasmaan pe hai’… 🙂

Let us come back to tonight’s post …

This song is a song that I got to listen to on radio in recent months. It sounded familiar, though I was not able to put a finger to it. Moreover I felt that the song may aready be there on the blog. But it was not. So the next step was to find out the details of the song, viz know the name of its movie. It turned out to be ‘Agent 009’. Many sources mentioned it as a movie of the year ‘1980’. However this movie is from the year ‘1981’.

Not just that, it turns out that this movie was again released in ‘1983’ with the title ‘Desh Shatru’, replacing the names of the producer-director-story writer of the earlier title ‘Agent 009’.

The movie “Agent 009” was directed by Chaand for ‘S.V.S. Films, Bombay’. And, the revised version ‘Desh Shatru-1983’ had Vijendra Mittal as director.

The star cast of this movie includes Rehana Sultana, Vijendra Mittal, Madhushala, Zareen, Padma Khanna, Bharat Kapoor, Gautam Bhatia, Manhar Desai, Maruti, Jagdish Raj, Mushtaq Merchant, G. Jilani, Vikas Anand, Nalini Singh, Shesh Chand, Suresh Garg, Vinod Kumar, Ramesh Goyal, S.P. Dubey, Manik, Ramkumar, Thapa, Khalil Khan, Sonam Randhawa, Amit Kumar, Ramesh Jindal, Thakurdas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1981, and with the new title ‘Desh Shatru’ it was passed by Censor Board on 12.04.1983.

According to HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) the revised version mentioned the name of the producer-director-writer of the movie as Vijendra Mittal.

Vijendra Mittal was also the lead actor of this re relaesed movie.

“Agent 009-1981/ Desh Shatru-1983” has four songs penned by four different lyricist viz. Verma Malik, Vishweshwar Sharma, Nandi Khanna and Pankaj Gyani.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

Sr.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 He aag lagaa di paani mein Verma Malik Kishore Kumar
02 Maharaja.., heera hoon kohinoor hoon main Nandi Khanna Dilraj Kaur
03 Sun mere Sai baba, Vishweshwar Sharma Chandrani Mukherjee
04 Teri umr ka saal badhha, ye raat matwaali hai … Pankaj Gyani Asha Bhonsle

Today I am presenting a song sung by Asha Bhonsle and composed by Sonik-Omi from this movie.
This song is a nice song to listen to. It seems to be a ‘party’ song , perhaps celebration a birthday as it mentions ‘teri umr ka saal badhha…’…

It is a celebration song, but it also contains words of caution…

Lekin…
Lekin …
Lekin kaali hai
(ye raat 🙂 )

… this song must be having some ‘mystery’ surrounding it 🙂 which we are not privy to.

Readers who have watched either of the movies ‘Agent 009/Desh Shatru’ may be able to tell us more …

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us enjoy this song sung by Asha Bhonsle and written by Pankaj Gyani.

Music (in ‘Pancham’ style) is by Sonik-Omi.

Only the audio of this song is available.

This movie ‘Agent 009-1981/Desh Shatru-1983’ makes their debut on the blog with this song. Also, I think that the lyricist Pankaj Gyani makes a debut as a lyricist on the blog. In the list of lyricist on the statistics page on the blog we have a name Pankaj only but not Pankaj Gyani.

(Note – HFGK mentions both the movies separately as per their year of release and with above information mentioned).

#the Decade of Seventies – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————
(Birth Anniversary – Rajkamal – A tribute)

Today 15th January’2023 is the ninety-fifth birth anniversary of Music Composer Rajkamal ji (born on 15th January 1928 – passed away on 1st September 2005).

Rajkamal has given timeless musical classics such as ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’, ‘Chashm –E-Buddoor’ to Hindi Film Industry and he also composed the music for B.R. Chopra’s ‘epic serial on TV’ – ‘Mahaabharat’.

He had also sung a few songs in Hindi movies. As a tribute to him on his birth anniversary we will listen to a song sung by him from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’.

“Akhand Saubhaagyawati” was directed by Rakesh Nahta for ‘Dhwani Prakash, Bombay’. He was also the producer of this movie.

It had Reeta Bhaduri, Arvind Kumar, Kalpana Deewan, Chandrakant Pandya, Nalin Dave, Kanchan Mattu, Kamini Bhatiya, Krupadev Yanik, Javed Mishra, Chandrakant Thakkar, Vishnu Kumar Vyas, Master Bittoo and others.

HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) mentions in its foot note for this movie that as per Lyricist-Composer Keshav Rathod (Ahmedabad) this movie was originally made in Gujarati language with the title ‘Amar Rahe Taaro Chaandlo’. Its Hindi edition was made as ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’ with re-shooting the whole movie again.
This movie has five songs which were converted to Hindi by Pt. Narendra Sharma from the original songs in Gujarati by Keshav Rathod.

This movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati’ was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1981.

As mentioned above this movie has five songs written by Narendra Sharma and composed to music by Rajkamal.

Rajkamal himself, Hemlata, and Sushma Shreshtha had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Rajkamal.

Only the audio of this song is available now. And I guess that the video of this movie and its songs is not available as of now or I could not find them.

Let us now listen to the today’s song which is ‘ojha’ song and talks about the ‘jantar mantar’ by him.

I have not been able to note down correct words at many places and I would request knowledgeable readers to provide the correct words there. And also throw light on this movie and its songs.

With today’s song this movie ‘Akhand Saubhaagyawati-1981’ makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Barsaat Ki Ek Raat” was a Shakti Samanta produced and directed 1981 release. It starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee, Utpal Dutt, Amjad Khan, Abhi Bhattacharya, Prema Narayan, Sujit Kumar, Asit Sen 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.

The film had 5 songs of which the following 3 are on the blog:

Song Date posted
Apne pyaar ke sapne sach huye 10 October 2009
Haaye wo pardesi man mein kaun disha se aa gaya 11 October 2009
Manchali ho manchali kaun si hai ye gali 4 April 2019

The movie was set in the picturesque North Bengal region- Darjeeling to be exact. Tea gardens formed the backdrop for most songs. It was a made simultaneously in Bengali as “Anusandhan” and was based on a Bengali novel. The Bengali version was more successful as compared to the Hindi one.
Abhi Bhattacharya played an official of the tea gardens and Rakhee was his blind daughter.

Amjad Khan (Kaliram) played the local goonda- element who is a law unto himself and has all the vices possible. Utpal Dutt (Sahuji), who is Amjad Khans’ father in the movie, is also the cause of the areas’ problems. He instigates the workers to strike against Abhi Bhattacharya etc. Additionally, he is involved in cross border smuggling.

Into this set up, Abhijeet (Amitabh Bachchan) walks in. Initially the locals have no clue about who he is. And he gets into a tangle with Kaliram on numerous occasions, today’s song is one such tangle, though a musical one.

It happens on the occasion of Durga Puja. Kaliram tries to impress the local female populace with his “dhol playing” and challenges Abhijeet to outdo him. What follows is a song in the voice of Kishore Kumar and Kaliram being mocked by Abhijeet. We have the blind Rakhi in the audience with Prema Narayan giving hee live updates.

This used to be a song that came regularly on Doordarshan.

We are having the song today to remember Panchamda (birthname:- Rahul Dev Burman) on his 29th remembrance anniversary.

For those who are his fans, it is common knowledge that he was son of legendary music director/ singer Sachin Dev Burman and Meera Burman. People are said to be born into riches Panchamda was born into music.

I have read at various places that SD Burman was proud to be referred to as Pancham’s father in the 70s. He was friends with the music director duo Laxmi-Pyare and has played the harmonica in some songs composed by the duo. The duo have also appeared on-screen in a song was composed by RDB. His closest friends in the industry were Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Kumar, Gulzar, Dev Anand & Gulshan Bawra. The trio of Rajesh Khanna- RDB – Kishore Kumar worked together in 32 films. Panchamda was nominated for around 8 films at the Filmfare and won 4 of them, the last one was posthumously for “1942- A Love Story”.

I can go on writing about his songs which are my personal favorites and may still miss a few lived songs. Today’s song is also one from my playlist.

(Tributes to Mohd Rafi and actor Om Prakash)
————————————————

Today’s post is to pay our tributes to the Legendary Singer Mohd Rafi who was born on this day 24th December in 1924 and passed away on 31st July’1980.

On this occasion I am presenting a song sung by him from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Maan Gaye Ustaad’.

On the screen this song is performed by actor Om Prakash.

That way this post also serves the purpose to pay our tributes to Om Prakash whose birth anniversary was on 19th December.
One of the finest character actors of Hindi Films Om Prakash was born on 19th December’1919 and passed away on 21st February’1998.

Today’s movie “Maan Gaye Ustaad-1981” was directed by Shibu Mitra for ‘Kapoor Films International, Bombay’.

It was produced by S.K. Kapoor.

It had Ashok Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Hema Malini, Ajit, Bindu, Amjad Khan, Pran, Chandrashekhar, Rajendra Nath, Sonia Sahni, Devyani Thakkar, Uttam Sodhi, Johny, Leena Das, Jazbel, Peeloo Wadia, Mohan Choti, Rajan Haksar, Rajan Kapoor, Shetty, Murad, Ghulam Hussain, Moolchand, Gurucharan, Bhola and others.
This movie also had child artistes Ravi Valecha and Baby Suparna.

Character actor Om Prakash made a special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.06.1981.

“Maan Gaye Ustaad-1981” had seven songs, all written by Verma Malik. Music for this movie was composed by Sonik-Omi.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

Sr.No Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Mera ik sawaal hai … maan gaye ustaad Rafi, Dilraj Kaur, Chandrani Mukherjee 12.02.2018
02 Mujhpe bhi to daalo ek nazar Asha Bhonsle
03 Ek chhatri aur ham do Rafi, Asha Bhonsle 03.11.2012
04 Jawaani ki kahaani bhi ajeeb hai Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Ham salaam karte hain Asha Bhonsle, chorus
06 Duniya ke liye main aafat hoon… mujhse nazarein milaane ki jurrat na kar Rafi, Manna Dey 26.11.2012
07 Allah ka naam paak hai wo paak rahega … Rafi

We can see that three songs from this movie ‘Maan Gaye Ustaad’ have been posted on the blog so far. Though this movie has already completed its’ ten-year run on the blog it is yet to be covered with all its songs.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog. Incidentally all the three songs from this movie earlier were presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. On screen it is Om Prakash who lip-syncs this song ‘praising the lord’ and seeking his help for ‘change of heart’ for Amjad Khan. I guess so, since Amjad Khan is also shown driving a car with a child artist in the picturisation of this song.

Let us listen to this beautiful song now…

Blog Day :

5224 Post No. : 17217 Movie Count :

4632

Nowadays it is happening with me regularly that whenever I come across a new song (newer to me) I check for its movie name, and when I became aware of the name of the movie I check it on the blog. I am under the impression that this movie surely is on the blog. But, when I found that the movie is not yet available on the blog, I do not believe it and keep checking many times in various lists  . The recent such instances is the movie ‘Taxi Chor-1980’ and another one is the today’s movie.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Daasi-1981’. I do not know if I was confusing the movie ‘Swaami-1977’ with ‘Daasi’, but I was surprised to note that ‘Daasi-1981’ is yet to make its debut on the blog.

I landed on this movie ‘Daasi-1981’ when I get to listen one of its songs, not the today’s one, on Vividh Bharati. I was planning to present that song which I listened to and liked, but I am leaving that one for another write-up soon.

This is because this movie ‘Daasi-1981’ has Sanjeev Kumar in it and today 6th November 2022 is the thirty-seventh ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Sanjeev Kumar.

Sanjeev Kumar (Haribhai Jethalal Jariwala) was born on 9th July 1938 and passed away on 6th November 1985 at the age of forty-seven only. One of the finest actors of Hindi Cinema Sanjeev Kumar was the most loved actor by of all our group of friends who grew up in the seventies.

We enjoyed his movies a lot and whenever there was a new Sanjeev Kumar movie released every one of us (friends) were eager to watch it as early as possible and then we used to discuss it a lot in our friends’ group meetings.

But I do not remember to have watched the today’s movie of Sanjeev Kumar which was released in 1981. I was studying in ninth standard then (in 1981-1982). It seems that the movie was also a lesser known or a non-successful movie of its time.

‘Daasi-1981’ was directed by Raj Khosla for ‘Gavrav International Productions, Bombay’.
It was produced by Subhash Verma.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, Vikram, Paintal, Siddharth Kak, Radhika Bartakke, Anita Advani, Sundar, Leela Mishra, Dhoomal, Bela, Meena, Rajesh, Arjan Sahni, Gauri Verma, Pooja Verma and others.

This movie had seven songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Ravindra Jain and Rajesh Roshan.

I will be presenting more details of this movie and its songs in my next write-up with a song of this movie.

Today as a tribute to Sanjeev Kumar we will listen to a song from this movie which is sung by Bhupinder Singh and which on screen is performed by Sanjeev Kumar.

Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Rekha, Moushumi Chatterjee, Vikram and others.

In the today’s song the character in the movie ‘under the circumstances’ is trying to justify his drinking … ‘thhodi sharaab pee loon’. So, I don’t think this song should fall under ‘drunkard’ song. But, incidentally recently I listened to ‘Madhushaala’ after a long time and also some ‘drinking motivational songs’ from Hindi movies. Actually, since many years I am longing to do a ‘compilation’ of all ‘these type of songs from Hindi movies’ 🙂
The today’s song reminded me of the following lines from ‘madhushaala’ …

‘dard nashaa hai is madira ka, vigat smritiyaan saathi hain, peeda mein anand jise ho aaye meri madhushaala’ 🙂 (well sometimes it happens … )

Let us listen to today’s song now and watch Sanjeev Kumar performing as a ‘ghazal singer’ …

Song-Thhodi sharaab pee loon(Daasi)(1981) Singer-Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

Log kehte hain main
ek fankaar hoon
apni shohrat se par
main sharamsaar hoon
mujhse poochho agar
to main kuchh bhi nahin
girti tooti huyi
ek deewaar hoon

thhodi sharaab pee loon
thhodi sharaab pee loon
ho jaaye kuchh sahaara aa aa
ae doston tumhen kya
ae doston tumhe kya
ye bhi …

Hullo Atuldom

28th September is the date which is deeply etched in the minds of followers of Hindi Film music. It is the birthdate of the LATA MANGESHKAR. She had a great fan following even among celebrities and in all corners of the earth.

There are pages & pages written about this legend. Every song that she has ever sung has some significance to the listener. Talk to any layman and they will have their own personal playlist featuring songs of this “nightingale”. Invariably the list will have a bhajan, aarathi at the top of the list that will be followed by songs in all moods possible.

Whatever one writes may be a repeat of what has already been written and/or said. Hence I am getting straight to a song. My quest for a song featuring S P Balasubramaniyam and Lata Mangeshkar gave me all the expected results- meaning songs featuring Salman Khan, Jeetendra etc. as also songs from some popular Rajshree Production films. Among all those results I spied a long-forgotten song which featured Rakesh Roshan and Rati Agnihotri. We shall listen to that song today .

The song is from the 1981 released, Rajashekhar directed “Jeene Ki Aarzoo”. It was produced by M. Kumaran, Balasubramanian M. and M. Saravan. That means the production house was AVM Studios of Madras. It was the last Hindi film of the production house, the first one being “Bahar” in 1951 that introduced the Hindi film audiences to a dancing actress Vyjayanthimala.

The music director for “Jeene Ki Aarzoo” was Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan the lyricist. The four songs of the film were sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and S P Balasubramaniyam. Mithun Chakravarthy, Bindiya Goswami, Rakesh Roshan, Rati Agnihotri, Keshto Mukherjee, Rajendranath, Jagdeep, Sujit Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, formed the main cast.

The film was a remake of the director’s own Kannada original “Hunnimeya Rathriyalli” (1980) I have no clue about the plot of the movie but only recall that there was a song featuring Rati in a village belle outfit where she sang about ‘raw mangoes’. Reviews about the movie on online websites say that Mithun Chakravarthy had given a sensational performance and that Rakesh Roshan was good. The reviewer also says that even if the movie itself was not mind-blowing; it was a different kind of film in times when movies were mostly full of ‘Maar-Dhaad’.

Getting on to the song, thinking of Balu sir (whose anniversary was on 25th -two years already!!) and Lata Didi.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 93
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this day i.e., 17th September ’2012 the following songs were posted on the blog.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Aji aawo muhabbat ki khaa le qasam Shehanaayi(1947 ) All songs covered
Tu kaun hai mera keh de baalam Deedaar (1951) All songs covered
Ulajh gaya jiya mera nainon ke jaal mein Jaadu(1951 All songs covered
Lagan lagi hai sajan milan ki Naataa (1955) All songs covered
Aaj rota hai kyun Ghar Ka Chiraag(1967) 5 of 6 songs covered
Kahin daag na lag jaaye Mera Naam Joker(1970) All songs covered
Aansuon ko thham le Chhota Baap(1977) 2 of 6 songs covered
Jahaan pe sawera ho basera wahin hai Baseraa(1981) 1 of 6 songs posted
Chanda re chanda re kabhi to zameen par aa Sapnay(1997) 1 songs posted

From the above table we can see that ten years back ‘this day’ was a great day for the blog as a ‘whopping’ nine songs were posted on that day.

From the above nine movies represented on the blog on that day five movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, we have the following four movies remaining where we can discuss song/s from this movie on the blog today.

– ‘Ghar Ka Chiraag-1967’
– ‘Chhotaa Baap – 1977’
– ‘Baseraa-1981’
– ‘Sapnay-1997’

I am presenting a song from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Baseraa’. One well known song from this movie have already been posted on the blog.

“Basera” was a Rose Movies presentation. It was produced by Ramesh Behl and directed by Ramesh Talwar.
The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Rakhee Gulzar, Rekha, Poonam Dhillon, Ifthekhar, A.K. Hangal, Raj Kiran, Master Vikas, Pardesi, Raj Verama/Chandu, Baby Gazala, Salma, Kirit Vyas, Mrs. H.F. Mistry, Vishwanath, Sudha Chopra, Gulshan/Harjeet, Raj Bharti, Tikka Singh etc in it.

This movie has six songs in it which are all penned by Gulzar.

Gulzar Saab also wrote the screenplay, dialogues, and story of this movie.

Music for this film was composed by R.D. Burman.

Our dear Prakash ji had shared two songs from this movie for the today’s occasion. However, I am presenting a different – lesser heard song from this movie for today’s occasion.

I was not aware of this song till one year back or may be a little more than that. But, during the last one year I had heard it many times on ‘Radio’ (VVB) and since then I have been liking this song very much.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip synced by Raj Kiran and Poonam Dhillon. Many other artists are also seen in the picturisation of this song on screen.

This is the only Kishore Kumar song in this movie ‘Basera-1981’ and on the blog too we surely are due for a Kishore Kumar song now, as the last Kishore song on the blog was posted on 13.08.2022.

More about this movie ‘Baseraa-1981’ and its songs will be covered in future posts of this movie-songs on the blog 😊

Till then let us now listen to today’s song …

I hope that readers will also enjoy this song.

The blog completes 14 years of its existence today (19 july 2008-19 july 2022).

Blog Day :

5114 Post No. : 17061

19 July is a special day for the blog. It was on this day in 2008 that the blog went online with its first post, namely Mile na phool to kaanton se dosti kar li . That was the only post of the day, befitting the name of the blog “Atul Song A Day”. Discussing one song daily was the original idea and the blog stuck to it for 40 days. after that, the blog began to cover more than one song daily. It became “Atul Many Songs A Day”. On some occasions, as many as 12 and even 13 songs were covered in one day. Some exasperated subscribers of the blog complained that they were song lovers, but not that hardcore song lovers that they could handle one song notification in their e mail almost every hour of the day. 🙂

Acronym of the Blog name is ASAD. Depending on the places where I was based during the last 14 years, the blog could be described as ASAD Jabalpuri, ASAD Nagpuri, ASAD Bilaspuri, Asad Barelvi (or ASAD Izatnagri) and ASAD Gorakhpuri. These do not sound right-do I hear some people say that ? Now the blog is finally ASAD Bhopali. 🙂 That sounds right. 🙂 After being posted in different places in different parts of India, I retired from service last june and settled at Bhopal. So the blog from now onwards is likely to be permanently ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

ASAD by the way stands for “Lion” in Arabic. Mind you, Lion, not Tiger. Another set of “Lion” are in news these days namely the lions of Sarnath. 🙂

19 July 2008 was a saturday and unknowingly, it was on this day that the month of Saawan began. That was quite befitting and fortuitous, seeing that “Saawan” is musicaly a very important season for Hindi movie songs. This season has inspired a very large number of songs in Hindi movies.

The blog, after being a song a day blog for the first 40 days of its existence began to cover lots and lots of songs, touching its pinnacle in 2012 when 2071 songs were covered at an average of 5.66 songs every day. But we have seen decline in blog strike rate since then. Only 547 song posts appeared in 2019, at an average of just 1.5 songs a day.

Posts appear in the blog almost every day, almost without fail. Today (19 July 2018) is the 5114th day for the blog. 223 out of these 5114 days (4.3%) have been DOT days (viz days when no posts appeared). The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (4177th day of the blog). So the blog is at present seing a long unbroken streak of 937 days when at least one song is being covered in the blog everyday.

Consistency of effort has seen the blog clock its 17000th song recently (on 12 June 2022). With time, the blog has added new dimensions to it. From a one man show,  it became an online collaboration of limkeminded music lovers coming from various parts of the country,  and some coming from abroad as well. It is very heartening to note that our core group of contributors reflect the unity in diversity that India reprsents. And quite remarkably, the two genders are represented almost equally.

The blog has become a very important part in the lives of many in ways that we are often unaware. For instance, there was this heartwarming post by a lady who mentioned that she played the song Jyoti kalash chhalke(Bhaabhi ki choodiyaan)(1961) every morning for herself as well as her young granddaughter. On several occasions, we have had comments from people who discovered some songs in the blog many decades after they had last heard the song. We also had comments in the blog from relatives of artists who have contributed in the fields of HFM. Our regulars too have had relatives who had contributed in this field.

The blog has helped us connect with each other online as well as offline. Regulars of this blog have had many get togethers as well as one on one meetings over the years. Personally I had the good fortune to meet a few of our regulars. These meetings were extremely memorable experiences that I cherish to this date. Some of these meetings have been covered in articles appearing in the blog. Other regulars have done the same.

In the articles that we have written, we have covered lots and lots of topics,  some of them not even related to music, but they are topics of common interest to most of us. For instance, we have discussed economy, sports, unsung heroes of India, pets, history, geography etc in the blog.

We can go on and on, but let us stop here and get back to our “main” issue of interest, namely music. On this happy occasion, when the blog has completed 14 years, we already had some upbeat songs in the blog. The song under discussion is one that is bound to cheer the audience up even more.

This song is from “Yaaraana”(1981). “Yaaraana”(1981) was produced by H A Nadiadwala and directed by Rakesh Kumar. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Neetu Singh, Tanuja, Amjad Khan, Kader Khan, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Ranjeet, Bharat Bhushan, Viju Khote, Lalita Pawar, Ram Sethi etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it (including two multiple version songs). Six of these songs (including two multiple version songs) have been covered so far.

Here is this song from “Yaaraana”(1981). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

This song is a stage dance song, a Disco dance song in fact, that was the flavour of those days. This is one of few songs from that era, which has stood the test of time and continues to remain popular to this day.

As part of Blog celebration, here is this great song from “Yaaraana”(1981) that is guaranteed to make the day of the music lovers.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and encouragement is the perpetual source of energy that is driving this musical bandwagon on and on. Hoping to reach many more musical destinations and milestones in the times to come.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 68

Blog Day :

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.
