This is the last song and culmination of a short series of posts about inspired/copied songs. The team of creators of this song from Sangharsh(1999) is Jatin-Lalit, Sameer and Sonu Nigam. This inspiration behind this song is the OPN song from “Ek Musaafir Ek Hasina”.

This is the list of the five songs posted so far in this series:

Song Posted on
Tu meri zindagi hai 21 Sep 2020
Bhoori bhoori aankhon waala ek ladka hai 28 Sep 2020
Love ki ghanti baj gayi meri 28 Sep 2020
Raaja ko raani se pyaar ho gaya 1 Oct 2020
Saathiya tu mere sapnon ka meet hai 6 Oct 2020

Before internet and Youtube, it may have been easy to simply copy or lift a song created by someone else and pass it off as your own. Lay persons who are not actually conversant with music and composition process would not be able to find a link.

There is the famed instance of Madan Mohan doing this sort of thing, and using the tune from Sajjad Hussain’s “Sangdil” song “Ye hawa ye raat ye chaandni”, for his song “Tujhe kya sunaaun main dilruba” in “Aakhri Daao” (1958). In fact Madan Mohan went on to use the same tune for the song “hai isi mein pyar ki aabroo” in Anpadh (1962).

In fact, the tune is also very similar for this ghazal rendition in Laal Qila.

Coming back to the song from Sangharsh(1999), the singer Sonu Nigam is trying to sing the style of Kishore Kumar, which he does in many songs, but here the precedent is a Rafi rendition. It appears to a deliberate attempt to make the song sound different from the “Ek Musafir Ek Haseena” song.

I have seen this movie on cable TV, so can try to give a bit of the background. It was about the horrors of ‘child sacrifice’ and black magic like issues that are a part of ancient dogmas prevalent in some parts. Practices like child sacrifice for attaining immortality. Ashutosh Rana played the character of the tantric/fanatic, which is looking to sacrifice a particular child of certain physical attributes, at a particular time and hour determined by some principles of black magic on a full moon night. The takeaway of the film was Ashutosh Rana’s performance as the tantric.

Priety Zinta is a police officers who is assigned to solve this case of case of saving the child kidnapped by the tantric.

Akshay Kumar is a professor in jail, the crime is unclear. Priety Zinta needs Akshay’s help to solve the case and save the child from being sacrificed.

The topic was certainly unique, never dealt before in hindi films. Priety Zinta visits Akshay Kumar in jail and he manages to spook her so much that she calls her friend Aman Verma in Delhi to share her fear and insecurity. Aman Verma is trying to reassure her divert her attention from her fears of past and present by singing this song on the phone.

So this is a phone song too. The funny part is Aman Verma’s phone goes dead while is song is still going on, he goes to a public phone booth to complete the song. Complete it does, with the donkeys surrounding the phone booth 🙂 🙂

When I looked at the lyrics of this song, I quickly made some guesses about this song and its movie:-

1. This movie is directed by David Dhawan.

2. Music is by Anu Malik

3. The song is picturised as a chaalu dance song on klead pair of Govinda and Karishma Kapoor.

When I watched the picturisation and saw the details of the movie, I found that I had hit the bulls’s eye on 1 and 2. I was wrong in 3. The song was picturised not on Govinda and Karisha Kapoor but on Akshay Kumar and Juhi Chawla.

This movie was called “Mr and Mrs Khilaadi” (1997). May be I should have paid attention to the title to guess the hero. If the title had the word “Khilaadi” in it, then it used to be an Akshay Kumar starrer. If the title had the phrase “number one” in it, then that used to be Govinda starrer, duly directed by David Dhawan.

The movie “Mr and Mrs Khilaadi” (1997) was produced by Keshu Ramsey and directed by David Dhawan. The movie had Akshay Kumar, Juhi Chawla, Kader Khan, Gulshan Grover, Johny Lever, Satish Kaushik, Anjala Zaveri, Paresh Rawal, Birbal, Guddi Maruti, Mac Mohan, Himani Shivpuri, Upasna Singh, Rakesh Bedi, Anil Dhawan, Kishore Bhanushali, Jack Gaud, Raj Kishore etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. This song is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Abhijeet and P0ornima. Dev Kohli is the lyricist. The lyrics are obviously inspired from the popular political slogan of Bihar those days that was -“Jab rak rahega samose mein aalu tab tak Bihar mein rahega Laalu.”

Thankfully that politician has proved to be more fallible than the humble aalu.

One obviously watches this song and listens to it with very low expectations, and so the song turns out to be a good fun to watch and listen to. The song has somer witty lines. In adduition to aaalu and samosa, the lyrics rope in idly and dosa as well;. 🙂

The dance that the two acors are seen performing is not disco, or ramba samba or any such known dance form. It is nothing more than aerobics exercises. 🙂

Here is this fun song from “Mr and Mrs Khilaadi” (1997) first thing in the morning. Only if I could somehow get a samosa, or even idly and dosa at this time in the morning. Alas, I have to make do with just a morning cup of tea. 🙂


Song-Jab tak rahega samose mein aalo (Mr and Mrs Khilaadi) (1997) Singers-Abhijeet, Poornima, Lyrics- Dev Kohli, MD-Anu Malik

Lyrics

chipki rahegi tujhse ye shaalu

jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
tera rahoonga o meri shaalu

chatni bina pheeka laage samosa
chatni bhi aayegi kar le bharosa
haaye chatni bina pheeka laage samosa
chatni bhi aayegi kar le bharosa
main teri idli hoon tu mera dosa
ho jaaye garma garam ek bosa

jab tak rahega samose mein aalu

lalala lalala
lalala lalalalaa

tere liye ki hai sabse ladaai
toh kya dekht hai pakad le kalaai
tere liye ki hai sabse ladaai
toh kya dekhta hai pakad le kalaai
ke meri mohabbat tujhe kheench laayi
mere baap ka ban gaya tu jamaai
arre na na arre na na arre na na
arre na na
haan haan
arre haan haan
arre haan haan
arre haan haan

jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
tera rahoonga o meri shaalu
jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
chipki rahegi tujhse ye shaalu

jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
tera rahoonga o meri shaalu
jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
tera rahoonga o meri shaalu
jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
chipki rahegi tujhse ye shaalu

jab tak rahega samose mein aalu
tera rahoonga o meri shaalu

If there was a national season in India, it would probably be the monsoons. Across the country, the arrivals of rains is awaited and celebrated, not only traditional ways but also in very personal ways. Someone might have their mother making Adrak wali chai (ginger tea) and pakodas for them, while someone else might have a standing date with Bandra Bandstand. We all have some beautiful memories of rain that rerun in our heads when the first rains hit the dry soil wherever we are.

This song won the Filmfare award for Best female playback singer of 2008, for Shreya Ghoshal. Shreya Ghoshal is one find of the decade as far as female playback singers are concerned. She is here there everywhere, in all films. She has dominated the female playback scene for some years now. With Lata and Asha both almost out of contention and singing few songs, there was a gap which is filled somewhat first by Alka Yagnik in the 90’s and than by Shreya Ghoshal. I especially like her solo songs. Of course, nobody can quite dominate a field like Lata and Asha did for 40 odd years. The field is wide open now and with more competetion from all around. But Shreya Ghoshal is most talented of the lot and sounds good in all types of songs.
