The Golden era of HFM was well and truly over after 1980s, with Disco “music” sounding the death knell of HFM as we knew till then. In these “music”, lyrics were all but dispensed with.

HFM continued to have a few nice songs even during the “disco” era. There were still some artists who refused to compromise with quality and refused to stoop to the new low that was set as the new standards of HFM post 1980.

“Saagar”(1985) was one such movie whose music felt like a breath of fresh air during that era. This movie had come from the stables of a well known and well respected production house, one that had given us “Sholay”(1975).

“Saagar”(1985) was Produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Dimple Kapadia, Saeed Jaffrey, Shafi Inamdaar, Nadira, A K Hangal, Madhur Jaffrey, Satish Kaushik, Goga Kapoor, Kiran Vairale, Lilliput, Shobha Khote, Sudhir Pandey, Sharat Saxena, Mushtaq Merchant, Jairaj etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saagar”(1985) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Jawed Akhtar, who wrote the script of “Sholay”(1975) alongwith Salim Khan as Salim Jawed, had turned a lyricist by then. “Saagar”(1975) was one of the first (if not the first) movies where he penned lyrics.

R D Burman composed the music.

The song is picturised as a club song where Rishi Kapoor, holding a guitar, is seen lip syncing this song. The song is addressed to his long separated flame (played by Dimple Kapadia). Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia had last actded together in “Bobby”(1973) which was the launch vehcle for Rishi Kapoor as well as Dimple Kapadia. while Rishi Kapoor successfully got launched and established, Dimple Kapadia, in a surprise movie married Rajesh Khanna and vanished from films. It was more than one decade later that she was persuaded to make comeback to movies. She made quite a stunning comback in movie like “Aitbaar”(1985) and “Saagar”(1985).

Music of these movies were quie stunning and played stellar roles in the box office success of these movies.

The song under discussion is one such song. It remains a timeless classic to this day.


Song-Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

ho chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

arre tu kya jaane teri khaatir
kitna hai betaab ye dil
tu kya jaane dekh rahaa hai
kaise kaise khwaab ye dil
dil kehtaa hai tu hai yahaan
to jaataa lamhaa thham jaaye
waqt ka dariyaa behte behte
is manzar mein jam jaaye
toone deewaanaa dil ko banaayaa
is dil par ilzaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

ho aaj mai tujhase door sahi
aur tu mujhse anjaan sahi
tera saath nahin paaun to
khair tera aramaan sahi

lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalalala
lalalalalaa
laalaalaa

ho ye armaan ho
shor nahin ho
khaamoshi ke mele hon
is duniya mein koi nahin ho
ham donon hi akele hon
tere sapne dekh rahaa hoon
aur meraa ab kaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bataa tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Only yesterday I saw a rather old episode of the TALK SHOW – back then they used to call it interview (simple)- “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which Tabassum used to host. I am sure all movie/ music lovers would have seen at least one episode on Friday evenings (I think). I used to try and see it without fail. But the episode (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFFwOfs1IWw) I saw yesterday on YouTube I don’t recollect having seen in 1983. Just as well since; when I saw it yesterday it was an eye opener. It featured Anand Bakshi the lyricist.

He spoke at length on various topics, but what stuck with me was his answer to Tabassum’s question about the shelf life of songs, why do modern songs fade from public memory as soon as the movie is out of the theatres. (I have provided the link for those interested). He gave example of one the two most famous songs of the Subhash Ghai directed “Karz” (1980). Way back in 1983, when that interview happened, he didn’t expect that “meri umar ke naujawaanon —om shanti om” would remain for long in public memory, but we know otherwise. It is still very much popular so much so that Farha Khan not only used it for her movie title but also used that entire song in her movie. complete with Subhash Ghai directing Rishi Kapoor. That sequence was in Farha Khan’s movie to introduce her protagonist Om.

There is another Subhash Ghai movie of the 80s which people don’t recall that frequently, but it was a big hit back then. It was one of the three super successful movies of Anil Kapoor that year. I know it was later remade into Tamil (Oru Taayin Shabhatham by T. Rajender) and Telugu and Kannada as well. I am talking of Meri Jung (1985) which starred Girish Karnad, Nutan and Amrish Puri (making the older generation) with Anil Kapoor leading the young brigade of Khushboo (his sister) Meenakshi Seshadri, and Javed Jaffery who made his debut in this movie as Amrish Puri’s wayward son; who has Khushboo falling in love with him; which conveniently helps the two warring advocates -Anil Kapoor and Amrish Puri.

Remember once before I had wondered how multi-talented the advocates in our movies are (In this when Vinod Khanna jumped over walls to get something from Leena Chandavarkar’s room). “Meri Jung” has Anil Kapoor just swallowing some medicine which is supposed to be poison in court to prove his client Bina’s innocence. I am sure no one is allowed to touch evidences like that in court but anything is acceptable in Indian movies. Remember one bottle collecting blood directly from three donors at the same time. (which movie I know the readers will guess. 🙂 )

Since we talked of Meri Jung (1985) let us have a song from the movie today. It is a dance number by the oh-so beautiful Meenakshi Seshadri. How I wish she had not quit movies for familial life but then it was her personal choice to leave when still on top. She has left us a treasure trove of great songs to choose from whenever we think of her.

And why am I thinking of her today? Obviously, its her birthday today (16 november 2017). And what better than a dance number. We are just floored by her beauty and why not she was a Miss India. I was a fan of her’s and loved her movie selections- Jurm, Satyamev Jayate, Daamini, Ghaayal, Swati etc and don’t mind excusing he “Shahenshah” “Ganga Jumna Saraswati” etc (who would say know to sharing screen space with the Amitabh Bachchan.) Post her retirement she is settled in the US going back to her first love – classical dances. She runs a dance academy. Here is wishing her health wealth and happiness in life.

Today’s song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare are the music composers. The song is a dream of Meenakshi and she gets to dance on Mumbai’s Madh Island on a giant PIANO among other things. People didn’t call Subash Ghai a showman just like that. 🙂

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 05
—————————————————-

This melodius singing by Penaaz under the baton of Jaidev will not easily leave your mind long after the last note is played and heard. “Wow’ is what I can say after listening to her.

Today, 21st June is designated as the World Music Day. The reminders checked in quite late in the afternoon today. The historical details about this event are available on the internet, and our dear Arun ji has also summarized them in a brief post on the Whatsapp group.

As I set down thinking about this event, and to search out an appropriate song for today, my mind almost immediately went to the 1985 film ‘Sur Sangam’.  In my mind, this is probably the best film on the theme of classical music, in the recent decades. Times are past that classical music and the legends of this art form used to be the central themes of many a film, especially from the historical perspective, in the decades that coincide with the golden era of Hindi film music. Historical persona such as Tansen and Baiju, Narsi Mehta and Meerabai, Kalidas and Soordas, Kabir and Rani Roopmati have been central themes and central characters of many a film till the decade of 1970s. Beyond that, I cannot easily recall a film whose theme and storyline is based primarily on classical music.

The byline in one of the news programs on the 6th evening was – “फिल्मों का एक युग, मिनटों में सिमट गया” (“filmon ka ek yug, minton mein simat gaya”) (an entire era of (Hindi) filmdom, faded away in a matter of minutes). A completely unexpected departure happened earlier in the day. Very much in the saddle, and very much in the busy prime of his career, Om Puri passed away suddenly. The amount of intensity he packed into his characters, and in his dialogue delivery, it seemed he was going to last forever on the screen. Sixty six years they say. Goodness, it just seems like yesterday that Bhikhu picked up that axe used to cut wood at a cremation ground, and brutally attacked his own sister.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

So now we are all busy discussing the pros and cons of the demonetisation on our WhatsApp group. We are also having a fair number of jokes on the subject. But as our dear thandapani mentioned last week when our PM dropped the demonetisation bomb (as I like to call it) I have also decided to wait and watch for the rush at the banks and cash ATMs. At such a time a few songs ran through my mind. Let us have one of them today.

Today(12 november 2016) is the 70th birthday of Gopal Bedi.

Gopal who, you say?

No surprise if the name doesn’t ring a bell. But if I say “Ranjeet”, it will have instant recall.

Asha ji, one of the leading lady playback singers in Indian cinema, turns 83 today. Seventy of thes 83 years have been spent in an active career, probably the longest such accomplishment by a playback singer. As Sadanand ji indicates in his article (the one before this), he states that she is currently on a concert tour of US. This speaks of the energy and the verve of this personality.

Indian cricket and Bollywood both enjoy enormous popularity among Indians. With the fan following that some of the cricketing stars enjoy, a few producers have toyed with the idea of featuring them in main roles, side roles and also in guest roles in their movies. The underlying idea seems to be to encash their popularity for drawing more movie watchers to the movie halls. But past experiences show that most films featuring cricketers have flopped.
