Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 6
———————————–————––—

Remembering Mohammed Rafi Sahab on his 41st remembrance day :

Writing a post of a song by Mohammed Rafi Sahab is almost a second nature thing for me. I have not counted but nearly 50 % on my post must be of his songs, the exalted one, who was especially blessed by the Almighty with a life, spend smiling and spreading smiles as far as I know. Some people do want to remember him by the sad songs which he sang with equal spirit, giving them his all, that the song, situation and composition demanded, the same as he did for other songs. I found this photo, and see who has the widest smile of them all: <a href=”https://in.pinterest.com/pin/46724914867514223/&#8221; this and this this .

There are platitudes and eulogies and tributes paid in honour of celebrities, when they pass away, nowadays it is usually on social media. And then there is the sea of humanity, that erupted on a rainy friday of Ramadhan 1980 on the streets of Bandra and Juhu. It was 1980, not the time when the dwellers of this city could afford a new umbrella every monsoon. So it was black umbrellas galore on the tv screen, and many people who were without umbrella, having come out to brave the weather or travelled overnight from other parts of the country. They all had one aim, to accompany their beloved Rafi Sahab to the final destination. To walk two steps alongwith the ‘janaza’ of a ‘nek banda’, with the prayers for the departed soul’s maghfirah on every lip and in the heart.

I realized the real pain of losing someone close and dear 9 years ago, when my elder sister expired. A few days after that, my father said that he didn’t know what to ask from the Almighty in du’aa, as most of my du’aa was for her health and long life. In my turn I told him that though we all are grieving and crying on her passing away, but the tears and sadness is all for us actually. The thought of living on without that dear one, makes us feel lonely and bereft.

A year before she died, I had visited her in Bangalore. She was over the top to have me visit her, and we went to a lot of places. One day we both were going somewhere and we passed a ‘qabrastaan’ where her mother-in-law was buried. She said a prayer and told me we should always recite the prayer whenever we pass a qabrastan. The prayer roughly translates as “today you are resting here, we shall follow you tomorrow, for sure”.

Some similar thoughts on passing away of Rafi sahab are expressed in this song written by Anand Bakshi. This is a unique song in the film ‘Kroadh’ where Amitabh Bachchan is called on stage to pay tribute of Rafi Sahab on his 9th death anniversary programme. Amitabh Bachchan says a few sentences and starts singing the song:

na fankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya…
Mohammed Rafi tu bahot yaad aayaa….

The singer here is Mohammed Aziz who himself has passed away a few months ago. He has sung this song in memory of his idol very feelingly and there are tears in the eyes of Amitabh as he sings on stage and also the audience who are watching it. The scenes of ‘janaaza’ that Amitabh Bachchan is seen as recalling, were truly witnessed by him as well as Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant Pyarelal(possibly). I am sure about Amitabh Bachchan having witnessed it funeral as I have seen a photographs of him with Amjad Khan, Vinod Khanna and Rajesh Khanna. Here is the article where he Amitabh remembers the same.
This article has some rare photos of the fateful day.

The song is so appropriate for this occasion, that I am neglecting to post a song by Rafi Sahab himself. But this song expresses the feelings of Mohammed Aziz, Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Anand Bakshi, as the record holder for having written highest no. of film songs must be the lyricist with the highest no. of songs written for Rafi Sahab too. Laxmikant-Pyarelal are also having similar record with Rafi Sahab. Right from ‘Dosti’ and ‘Parasmani’, they were the one’s who justified the ‘Dosti’ and stood with Rafi Sahab through his thick and thin.

These artists composed and performed the song 9 years after Rafi Sahab’s passing away, and gave words and expression to the feelings of millions of his fans throughout the world.

Today 23rd March 2021 is the ninetieth remembrance anniversary of martyr dome of Sardar Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. They were hanged to death by the British regime on 23rd March 1931.

On this occasion as a tribute in remembrance of these great sons of this soil here is a song from the movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ (2002).

As I had mentioned in my earlier post on the blog, in the year 2002 there were three movies released on the life of Bhagat Singh;

  • 23rd March 1931 Shaheed
  • The Legend of Bhagat Singh
  • Shaheed-E-Azam

I would like to reproduce here what Dharmendra expressed about this movie his home production, (as appearing on the blurb of the audio cassette);

It is not the first time in the history of Indian Cinema that a film has been inspired by India’s favorite revolutionary. And quite honestly, it might not even be the last. This Sikh youth of character so powerful and deep represents the meaning of true patriotism and fearlessness to one and all. It can be assured that every time a movie is made on Bhagat Singh, not one person leaves the cinema hall carrying the same heart with which he arrives. It is not just his sacrifice that moves you; his biggest revolutionary thought and his smallest patriotic action, stir your blood inside. Bhagat Singh cannot be imitated, no matter how impressed you might feel. And yet, the one reason he chose death over life was to create a thousand of his kind so that each one of them could bear the depth of the same patriotic fervor to serve their country.
– Dharmendra

I was staying at Bareilly when this movie was released in 2002 and I had watched both the movies simultaneously i.e. ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ and ‘23rd March 1931-Shaheed’. I remember both the movie were welcomed by huge crowds in their first week of release and thereafter ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ had a good run on the box office, better than the today’s movie.

‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ was directed by Guddu Dhanoa for ‘Sunny Super Sound Presentation’. It was produced by Dharmendra.

It had Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Amrita Singh, Rahul Dev, Akshay Anand, Vicky Ahuja, Divya Dutta, Raja Bundela, Suresh Oberoi, Shakti Kapoor, Vivek Shauq, Samaresh Rautrai, Indal Singh, Sanjay Tripathi, Tej Sapru, Rajesh Khera, Deepak Sharma, Suresh Chatwal, Sachin Khedekar, Manoj Tiwari, Rana Jung Bahadur, Ishrat Ali, Imran Khan, Master Atit, Master Honey and Aishwarya Rai (in friendly appearance).

Screenplay of this movie is written by Sutanu Gupta and Dialogues of this movie are written by Sanjay S. Masoom Editing of this movie is done by Keshav Naidu. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.2002.

This movie has seven songs, written by Dev Kohli. The song “Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna” by Ramprasad Bismil was included in the movie and with it the total number of songs makes it to eight. Songs in this film are sung by Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Vinod Rathod, Hans Ran Hans (as per titles of the movie) and Bhupinder Singh, Mohd Salamat and Veer Rajendra (as mentioned in the blurb of the audio cassette of this movie and in addition to the names mentioned in the titles of the movie).

Today’s song is sung by Veer Rajinder and lyrics are by Dev Kohli. This song is in two parts (or may be three parts) in the movie as per video links available in the domain.

With the today’s song this movie ‘23rd March 1931 Shaheed’ (2002) makes its debut on the blog.

Let us now listen to the today’s song. . .

Hullo Atuldom

“Atulsongaday”- our favourite blog- is 16200+ posts old. We are still discovering popular songs and exclaiming ‘how come this has not yet been posted’. The song with this post is one that will get similar thoughts in the minds of the regular followers.

It is from a movie that I saw in the theatres at the time of its release and fell in love with its lead actors. Of course, falling in love with the moving images on the silver screen is something that I have been a victim of since “Seeta aur Geeta”, “Aradhana” and all the other movies that fall in my list of personal favourites. Small wonder then that I liked what I saw in “Betaab” and it is in the list of movies that I see every time I come across it. Also, the young star-crossed couple that Amrita Singh -Sunny Deol portrayed looked every bit in love with each other, that means they are good actors who did justice to Rahul Rawail’s (the director) judgement in casting them. Finally, ‘star-crossed lovers’ has always been a hit-formula in Indian movies and I am a fan of that formula since “Bobby”.

“Betaab” (1983) was produced by Vijayta Films which is essentially Dharmendra’s production house and Bikram Singh Dehal was the producer. Javed Akhtar was the writer, Anand Bakshi the lyricist and RD Burman was the music director. Shabbir Kumar (for whom this was a breakthrough movie) and Lata Mangeshkar were the playback singers. Nirupa Roy and Shammi Kapoor played parents, Prem Chopra the spoilsport, and Annu Kapoor, Birbal, Sunder etc were in supporting roles.

Interestingly, there is a scene in the start of the movie, where Amrita Singh (Roma Singh/Dingy in the movie) goes to fill petrol and the person who played the petrol pump attendant was actor Sunder’s son. That scene was to show the haughtiness of Roma’s character who later gets tamed and toned down after falling in love with Sunny. The two families are shown to be old-time friends who part ways and when Sunny’s family falls on bad times, Roma’s father, Shammi Kapoor, doesn’t acknowledge them as now they are on different economic levels. The movie travels the usual path of the lovers revolting against the tough father and his restrictions etc. and eventually getting back together for an ‘all is well’ ending.

Amrita Singh, who was a debutant in “Betaab” alongwith Sunny Deol, has her birthday today. And she is not a lady who hides her age and has been bold enough to act in all types of roles. She was amazing as a selfish sister in Deepak Sareen directed and Yash Chopra produced “Aaina” in 1994 and that fetched her the best supporting actor award. She has also enacted a negative character in the television serial “Kaavyanjali” and won an award there too. I saw the movie “2 States” in 2014 just to see her and Revathi (of south films), two actresses of the 80s and 90s whose work I enjoy.

Amrita was a heroine i.e playing a girl in love; screaming when the villain walks in; trying to get in the good books of the hero, his mother and other sundry family members in many of her initial movies. At the same time, she also tried her comic timing in “Chameli Ki Shaadi”; played a girl jilted by her man and still going ahead to give birth to his son in “CID” (1990) where Vinod Khanna was her hero. She has been paired with Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Vinod Khanna, Rajesh Khanna, Rajnikant, Raj Babbar, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie etc. of the next generation. When she co-starred with Shahrukh Khan in “Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman” she played a grey character and with Salman Khan in “Suryavanshi” she played the wandering ‘atma’ (soul) of a departed princess who is waiting to be re-united with her lover. She has had the guts to play a totally heartless businesswoman in “Kalyug” (2005) which was all about secret cameras, porn videos and international rackets dealing with these crimes. She had a break in her career when she married Saif Ali Khan in the 90s, had kids etc. She returned to face the camera with “23rd March 1931: Shaheed” as Bhagat Singh’s (played by Bobby Deol) mother. Her daughter Sara has made her debut in Bollywood through “Kedarnath” in 2018.

Here is wishing Amrita Singh all happiness and success in her future ventures too with this song that was her debut in Bollywood. This song appears in parts in the movie with the two also running around as kids when this song plays in the background (just remembered this bit.)

19/10/2020 – 64th Birthday of Sunny Deol
——————————————-
“Betaab” (1983) was produced by the Vijayta Films banner Dharmendra. This was the debut Hindi film of its lead actors, Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh. Today is Sunny Deol’s birthday, real name Ajay Singh Deol, made his debut at the age of 27 years.

The word “Betaab” evokes the Lata Mangeshkar’s melodious song “ Betaab dil ki tamanna yahi hai” by Madan Mohan in the film “Hanste Zakhm”. For a change, this is one of the films which I have seen, when it was released. I wanted to see the songs of this film for some time now, Sunny Deol’s birthday gave me the excuse. I have seen some of them, looking for a song shot on location. Critically speaking, this is not among the better scores by R. D. Burman. This is very basic, run of the mill music score, none of the RDB versatility being in evidence. May be the 80’s monotony is catching up with me. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist.

The location of the major parts of this film is a valley in Pahalgam, Kashmir, below the road leading to the glacier. The valley is named “Betaab valley”, and all tourist vehicles stop there on the way to Amarnath cave. It is a beautiful location, with the river flowing next to it.

We visited Kashmir in May 2012. I can say that it is one place on earth where time has stood still. I found a multiple locations which were seen in so many films of 60-80’s, the same as seen in the movies. Movie makers favorite location was the Dal Lake. The area surrounding it was a lot different, from what was seen in movies like “Aarzoo”. But I could see many places at Gulmarg and Pahalgam same as it was seen in movies. Seeing the wooden shop fronts in Pahalgam town, I remembered seeing the scene is “Bobby”.

Actually, Pahalgam has much more pristine and beautiful locations and points off the beaten track also, like the area called “Mini Switzerland”. I know the technology is so much advanced, and many megapixel cameras are now available to mankind to capture the nature’s beauty. But it is a fact that the human eye’s capacity is 576 megapixel. As far as I can understand, there is no camera in the world which can click or record at 576 megapixel.

This is what Google says, going to such details on a simple search:
“We see in 576 megapixel definition when our eyes are moving, but a single glance would only be about 5-15 megapixels. What’s more, your eyes naturally have a lot of flaws that a camera or digital screen don’t. For example, you have a built-in blind spot where your optic nerve meets up with your retina.”

Fantastic ! or zabardast ! But the fact remains whatever the camera captures or the digital screen displays, are to be seen and read by human eye. Visual input to the brain is through the eyesight, the brain can read only what the eyes will transmit.

Where I am going with all this? No where. But I can’t say I appreciate the way Google tried to dodge my question:) .

tajalli hai teri ye chaand kyaa hai chaandni kyaa hai
agar nazren salaamat hain to jalwon ki kami kyaa hai

Shakeel Badayuni – Laila Majnu(1953)

But I should not count my chickens here, as artificial intelligence may be able to transmit the perfect digital picture to human mind also, for all I know.

Like I said, give me such outdoorsy songs anytime, I am presenting the Shabbir Kumar Solo from “Betaab” filmed completely on location of the said ‘Betaab Valley”. In the song, Sunny Deol has found a “tasveer” of his childhood sweetheart Amrita Singh, in a magazine. He makes a cut out of the photo and sings this song, at his farm house, where he is shown to be rearing horses, and chickens etc.

In the movie Sunny Deol kidnaps Amrita Singh from her father’s house and keeps her in the farm house (seen the song) in a bid to remind her of their childhood friendship and love.

Some more trivia about the film:

• Singer Sonu Nigam played the role of Sunny Deol’s character as a child in this film.
• This film was remade in Telugu as “Samrat” (1987) and in Kannada as “Karthik” (2011).
• This was Javed Akhtar’s first film as a solo screenwriter after Salim – Javed split.
• Singer Shabbir Kumar got his big break in Hindi films when R.D. Burman got him to sing for all the songs in this film.

The movie must be something special to be remade in Telegu and Kannada, a reversal from what usually happens. I will elaborate the bit about Shabbir Kumar is the trivia above. It was said that, all songs of the film were to be recorded by Kishore Kumar. But since Kishore Kumar was away at the time, and the songs were needed for the scheduled shooting, they were recorded in the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The intention was to re-record the Shabbir Kumar portions afterwards in Kishore Kumar’s voice. But the songs turned out to be so well in Shabbir Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar’s voices, that it was decided to keep the songs as it is. And thus the career boost for Shabbir Kumar happened.

I will end the post with a dialogue (by Sunny Deol) in the film, where Amrita Singh refuses to eat the food cooked by Sunny Deol. This is the dialogue I have had to repeat sometimes to my kids, 🙂 🙂 if they disagreed with my cooking:

“Khaana hai to yahi khaana hai, nahi khaana hai to bhi yahi khaana hai”

Hullo Atuldom

I know of two movies that go by the name ‘Duniya’. One was in 1968 which had Dev Anand and Vyjayantimala in the lead and the second ‘Duniya’ (1984) had Dev Anand’s contemporary Dilip Kumar with Ashok Kumar in central roles around which Rishi Kapoor and Amrita Singh’s characters were built.

The ‘Duniya’ that came in 1968 was directed by T Prakash Rao and had a lot of popular songs like “Dooriyan Nazdeekiyan”; “Falsafa Pyar Ka Tum Kya Jaano”; the fun song “Tu Hi Meri Laxmi Tu Hi Meri Chhaaya” etc. SH Bihari, Gopaldas ‘Neeraj’, Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri were the lyricists and Shankar-Jaikishan were the music directors.

On going through the blog, I found that one more ‘Duniya’ is listed, which released in 1948 and had C Ramchandra for composer. I don’t have any knowledge about this movie other than the fact that on this blog all the songs from this movie are covered. For that matter even the 1968 movie has all its songs on the blog.

So now that brings us to ‘Duniya’ which released in 1984. It was produced by Yash Johar of Dharma Productions and directed by Ramesh Talwar of ‘Baseraa’ and ‘Doosra Aadmi’ fame. Its story, screenplay & dialogues are credited to Javed Akhtar. It had an impressive cast headed by Ashok Kumar and Dilip Kumar (as I have said earlier) ably supported by their colleagues of the 1950s and 1960s viz: Pran, Pradeep Kumar, and Prem Chopra. Saira Banu made a special appearance, her sole release after she retired in 1976/77. (One of her movies with Vinod Mehra as co-star, completed in 1976 released in 1988.) ‘Duniya’ also had Amrish Puri to complete the trio who wreak havoc in the life of Mohan Kumar (Dilip Kumar) which leads to the family getting separated, wife dying etc.  This means that the movie belonged to the action/ drama/ revenge genre. This movie had RD Burman’s music for songs penned by Javed Akhtar.

There is a re-run by the satellite channel Zee Classic of it programme ‘Classic Legends with Javed Akhtar’ which is basically a guided biography of legends who gave Hindi film industry some iconic movies and music. I happened to see an episode of this where RD Burman’s music was showcased. In the course of the programme Javed Akhtar has mentioned a song from ‘Duniya’ (1984).

As we all know a song is made when poetry is set to tune in a manner that it can be sung. There are times when the reverse can also happen. A musician thinks of a tune and has a song written to go with it. Javed Akhtar spoke of a song where RD had a tune for which the mukhda (opening stanza) would end in a tune that follows the tune of “Tanhaayi Mein Tadpaane Ko” from SD Burman’s song “Jeewan Ke Safar Mein Raahi” from ‘Munim ji’ (1955).  He was telling it was almost as if RD was paying tribute to his father.

Today on RD’s 78th birth anniversary I think we should have this particular song. ‘Duniya’ was not that successful and I don’t think any of its songs are in public memory. Even I remembered it only when I heard Javed Akhtar mention it. Everytime a movie flops, it takes its music of the movie down with it. I think this is what happened to the songs of this film.

So here is the song which was written by Javed Akhtar for a tune set by RD Burman inspired by his father’s tune. It is sung by Kishore Kumar to Rishi Kapoor’s lip-syncing. We can also see Amrish Puri overseeing the actions of Rishi Kapoor and Javed Khan, the fellow who walks away with Amrita’s bag.

tu chand nagar ki shehzaadi
mai is dharti ka banjaara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
