Hullo Atuldom

Kaahe ko byaahi bides posted on 30 march 2014 is a post where I had thanked all the lyrics writers of film songs for highlighting emotions of human beings and particularly women. I had said “WOW” to writers who cared for feelings of the Female of the human species. Specially the feelings at the time of “Bidaai” after the wedding rituals.

In that post I had also mentioned that songs with the heading/ title “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” has appeared twice on the blog until that date -30/03/2014. It is nearly 9 years since and fresh reviewing shows that we have the following songs posted with the said title

Song Movie (Year) Date of post Remarks
Lakhi baabul mere kaaahe ko deenhi bides Suhaagraat (1948) 7 December 2011 Credited to Amir Khusro
Kaaahe ko byaahi bides Heer Ranjha (1948) 8 December 2011
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Nadirshah (1968) 25 February 2013
kaahe ko byaahi bides Aadha Din Aadhi Raat (1977) 30 March 2014
Kaahe ko byaahi bades Jailor (1938) 7 August 2018 (post by Arunji)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides re lakhi baabul morey Jhankaar(1942) 24 February 2020 (post by Arunji & credited to Amir Khusro.)
Kaahe ko byaahi bides Umraao Jaan (1981) 4 March 2022 (credited to Amir Khusro)

As can be seen from the above we have seven versions of “Kaahe ko byaahi bides” of which ‘suhaagraat”(1948) “Umrao Jaan” (1981) & ” Jhankaar” (1942) give credit to Amir Khusro for the song. One version each have been credited to Wali Sahab, Kamal Amrohi, Majrooh Sultanpuri & Anand Bakshi. Another interesting result of this review- two of the posts are exhaustive, highly informative writeups by our in-house encyclopaedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji.

This is what he has said in his post dated 07/08/2018 about the use of this song in films :-

Today’s song is “Kaahe Ko Byaahi Bides”. This is a famous song by Amir Khusro. This has been used in several films like, Jhankaar-42, Heer Ranjha-48, Nadir Shah-68, Suhag Raat-48, Maang Bharo Sajna-80 and Umrao Jaan-2009, in addition to today’s song from film Jailor-38. It is also sung as a NFS by many famous singers. Mostly in films, the original song is mixed with some new lyrics and the credit is given to film’s lyricist. In film Jailor-38 too, the lyricist’s name is given as Kamal Amrohi.

All of what I have written above will make readers wonder where I am getting.

Of course I am presenting another version with this post. It is in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurthy, written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Laxmi-Pyare. It is from the 1980 release “Maang Bharo Sajna” which was directed by T. Rama Rao and produced by A. Poornachandra Rao.

It had Rekha- Moushumi Chatterjee – Jeetendra heading a cast which also had Kajal Kiran, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Parveen Paul, Yunus Parvez, Mohan Choti etc. The plot was essentially, an oft-repeated, melodrama where the hero falls in love & marries one heroine but has to, later, marry the other heroine who may have been selected by his family. At the time of the second marriage, the hero may believe that the first wife is dead or lost to him (as the case maybe) thus making the second marriage valid. Then the first wife will make a reappearance and then the complications will begin, leading to everyone being ready to sacrifice their love. Matters will get more interesting (for the audience) if the heroines are friends and infants are also present, then the climax will have one lady dying so that the other one live the rest of her life peacefully. This was the outline of most triangular love-stories, but was a hit-formula adopted by filmmakers to fill their coffers.

Today’s song comes at the close of the movie where we have a dying Rekha being accepted by Moushumi Chatterjee as her husband’s first wife. She instructs her husband to fill Rekha’s ‘Maang’ with Sindoor.

With this post we wish Kavita Krishnamurthy on turning a year older. This was one of her first recording for Hindi films. Of course, she had recorded ‘aayega aayega… aayega aanewaala” under Vilayat Khan’s music direction for “Kaadambari” (1975) and here is the post to that song as written by Sudhirji in his series “Songs Repeated In Hindi Films”.

That makes the song from “Kaadambari” her debut in Hindi films, which was followed by a song in Kannada under Bhaskar Chandavarkar’s music direction. Today’s song from “Maang Bharo Sajna” happened to be her first in the 1980s; however songs from “Pyar Jhukta Nahin” (1985) got her recognition; though there were other films between 1980 & 1985 were Kavita Krishnamurthy had sung songs most of which under Laxmi-Pyare’s music direction.

I had a very sweet experience last weekend. I got an opportunity to wish today’s birthday girl on the occasion of Sankranti. I interacted with her for a few minutes, wished her etc. She was gracious enough to let me click pictures with her. She told me that Bangalore is, now her favourite city, when I told her that I had met her once before too, on a flight from Bangalore to Mumbai.

Here is the song.


Song-Kaahe ko byaahi bides (Maang Bharo Sajna)(1980) Singer-Kavita Krishnamurthy, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kaahe ko byaahi bides

He founded his banner ‘Shakti Films’ in 1957. He produced and directed many films under this banner.

His movies like ‘Aradhana’, ‘Amar Prem’ and ‘Kati Patang’ among others are milestone movies in Hindi Film History.

Today on the occasion of his birth anniversary here is a song from the ‘1982’ movie ‘Ayyaash’.

Over to the song now…

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.

Hullo Atuldom

I must thank our Atulite, Prakashchandraji, for idea about the movie to accompany this post.

Here are the songs that were posted on the blog on 29/12/2012:-

Kis ki sadaayen mujhko bulaayen Red Rose(1980) (Lyrics by Prakashchandraji) 9:10 pm
Shakti de maa Ashaanti(1982) (Lyrics by Avinashji) 9:40 pm

29/12/2012 was a Saturday. As can be seen from the above list Atulji posted the first song at 7.38 in the morning. 12 songs were posted, 6 of which were guest posts from which 4 were by Sudhirji (he was also very active on the blog then) and one each by Nahmji & Arunkumarji.

The last three posts on that date had lyrics contributed by Avinashji, Prakashchandraji and Khyatiji; all three of which were songs featuring Rajesh Khanna for his birthday. It was the first birthdate after Kaka’s death in July that year; we were remembering him on what would have been his 70th birthday.

The song that was contributed by Avinashji was from “Ashanti” an Eagle Film’s production. Hatt jaao deewaane aaye was a song from the 1960 release “Singapore” which was also an Eagle Films’ production that was directed by Shakti Samanta. (that must have been unplanned, I am sure).

“Ashanti” (1982), a movie produced by Parvesh Mehra & Rajiv Mehra of Eagle Film’s and directed by Umesh Mehra. It had music by R.D. Burman with Anand Bakshi as the lyricist. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh were the playback singers used. The following three songs from this movie are on the blog.

Shakti de maa 29 december 2012
Laungi mirchi main Kolhapur ki 19 November 2019
Na tujhse na mujhse 29 December 2021

“Ashanti” was one of the multi-starrers of that year. It had Rajesh Khanna heading a cast of Shabana Azmi, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Mithun Chakravarthy, Kanwaljeet, Amrish Puri, Satyen Kappu, Jeevan Ramesh Deo, Nadira, Pinchoo kapoor, Narendranath, Monty Nath, and many more known faces that formed the supporting cast. It was an action film and was the story of an honest & dedicated police officer played by Rajesh Khanna who intercepts a bank robbery but is himself caught with the suitcase of stolen money, tried in the court and jailed. Further twists in the tale lead him to loosing a leg too. On his release from prison he seeks out the wrong doers and for this he has help from the three heroines and Shankar Dada played by Mithun. If my memory is correct, one of the heroines is also the lost daughter of Amrish Puri who is the cause of all the troubles of the police officer. The movie comes to a close after a lot of drama and high voltage action.

Today’s song has the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Amit Kumar. The song is picturised as a disco dance song on Zeenat Aman and Kanwaljeet. Rajesh Khanna is present among the audience. He is seen seated around a table with Shabana Azmi and he is seen looking furtively as befits a police officer on an important sectet mission.

Missing Kaka a.k.a Rajesh (first Superstar of Bollywood) Khanna on what would have been his 80th birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

“Awaargi” (1990) was directed by Mahesh Bhatt, story-screenplay-dialogues were written by Suraj Sanim, and produced by P. Raghunath (who happened to be Hema Malini’s uncle). The movie opens with a message ‘Thanking Hema Malini’. Anu Malik was the music composer with Anand Bakshi writing most of its songs. Playback singers used were Asha Bhonsle, Mohd. Aziz, Lata Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal; the Ghazal Maestro Ghulam Ali sang the melodious “Chamkate Chaand Ko Toota Hua Taara Banaa Dalaa” which was was written by Asad Bhopali. (Recently I saw this, sung by a youngster, on satellite TV, and I was hooked on to it and the songs of the movie itself).

Meenakshi Sheshadri-Anil Kapoor-Govinda formed the main lead and Anupam Kher headed the supporting cast of Satish Kaushik, Paresh Rawal, Avtar Gill, Mahesh Anand, Deepak Qazir, Ghanshyam etc. This was a movie that was long in the making and finally released 4 years after it was announced. This was one of the two movies that had Anil Kapoor & Govinda in the lead; the other being “Deewaana Mastaana”; both were love triangles but completely different from each other.
“Awaargi” was the story of Azaad (Anil Kapoor) rescuing a girl – Meena (Meenakshi)- from a brothel and how he helps her attain her dream of becoming a singer. For this he introduces her to a hotel owner (Deepak Qazir). Here she is spotted by a stage singer -Dhiren (Govinda)- who offers her a place in his troop and thus begins her journey to reach her dreams. Then, of course, there is the usual of Azaad falling in love with her and not being able to express it when he feels that Meena is in love with Dhiren. In between the confusion among the lovers there is also the ‘tadka’ of some gang lords – Paresh Rawal & Anupam Kher- wanting Meena back in the brothel.

I have seen this movie a decade back and don’t recall how it ends; but I am sure one of the guys would have given up his love for the lady; or (just maybe) the lady would have decided who she wanted in her life. This was a movie where Govinda and Anil Kapoor played serious characters with Anil Kapoor’s Azaad being the ‘Tapori’ that he was adept at playing back then.

Today we are having the song with which Meena makes her stage debut with Dhirens’ help. It is in the voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Aziz. It shows the two dancers in tandem to movements set by Saroj Khan.

With this post we are wishing the actor/dancer/singer/comedian Govinda who also tried his hand at being a Parliamentarian for a term as an elected member of the Lower House (Lok Sabha). He has taken a step closer to being 60.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Remembrance Day – Shashi Kapoor)
—————————————

Today we pay our tributes to yesteryears’ actor Shashi Kapoor. He passed away on this day 4th December in 2017. He was born on 18th March’1938.

On this occasion I am presenting a song from the 1978 movie ‘Aahuti’.

Shashi Kapoor was a regular feature in many of the movies in the seventies and many multi-starrer movies especially. Today’s movie is one such movie which I had watched in my childhood and being a story of three brothers it touched me and since then is there in my memory. Though, I do not remember the whole movie now except for its songs.

‘Aahuti’ was directed by Ashok Bhushan for ‘Basho Productions, Bombay’.

It had Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Rakesh Roshan, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev, Kamini Kaushal, Ajit, Madan Puri, Paintal, Krishan Dhawan, Raj Mehra, Kuljeet, Dulari, Birbal, Rajan Kapoor, Ranjana Sachdev, Preeti Ganguly, Ranbeer Raj, Pal Sharma, Darshan Arora, Dharmveer, Master Romi, Master Rajesh, Master Ravi and others.

Pradeep Kumar makes a ‘special appearance’ in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.04.1978.

This movie had six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Following is the list of songs in this movie;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Is duniya mein kaun sanwaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-1) Mahendra Kapoor, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
02 Is duniya mein kaun sanwaare sab ke bigde kaam (Part-2) Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Manhar, chorus
03 Kaash aisaa hota Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 04.08.2016
04 Saathi mere saathi rut aati jaati Mohd Rafi, Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 22.07.2018
05 Naukri sau ki hazaar ki Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, chorus
06 Jugni ik ladki ka naam Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 04.04.2021

So far three songs from the above have been earlier posted on the blog.

I had mentioned in my previous post with a song of this movie that the two songs from this movie which brings back memories for me are ‘Is duniya mein kaun sanwaare sab ke bigde kaam’ and the second one is the today’s song ‘Naukri sau ki hazaar ki’. This song is lying since long now and today we are going to listen and watch it ‘remembering Shashi Kapoor’ and also Parveen Babi both of whom appeared in many movies of the ‘seventies’.

Let us now listen to today’s beautiful song which is sung by Kishore Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal. The song is lip-synced by Shashi Kapoor and Parveen Babi respectively.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (Remembering Dev Anand)
—————————————

Today 3rd December’2022 is the eleventh ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ (born on 26th September 1923 – passed away on 3rd December 2011) of the legendary actor Dev Anand.

My father was a big big fan of Dev Anand (BTW I am also a Dev Saab’s fan too) and may be because of that I got to watch many of his movies in my childhood which I remember vaguely. In my childhood we were staying in colony of State Electricity Board and there used to be a weekly screening of Hindi movies which mostly were the older and older movies. Because getting newly released movies were a ‘costly affair’ for the ‘colony club committee’. In this weekly screening I get to watch many of Dev Anand’s black and white movies e.g. ‘Sarhad’, ‘Sharaabi’, ‘Bambai Ka Babu’, etc. and some older movies of sixties and early seventies too. This was the period from 1975 onward and 1977-to-1983 for me, if I remember correctly. Since watching movies and listening songs on radio was common for all in our family I get those songs imbibed on my mind also develop a liking for HFM of golden period e.g. the song ‘hai apnaa dil to aawaraa’ and many other songs. Why I am mentioning only this song is because it was the most favourites of my father and he used to play it on ‘mouth organ’ frequently and in the colony cultural programmes held during festivals.

Well there is long list of Dev Anand’s movies and songs which are favourites of me and even my family today. Like the song ‘phoolon ke rang se’, ‘dil ka bhandwar kare pukaar’, ‘hai apnaa dil to aawaraa’ etc which my daughters too like very much and they are always there in their playlists.

I get to listen to many Dev-Kishore-RDB combination songs daily on FM channels on radio and it is always a great pleasure to listen to them.

What I want to bring to the notice of the readers is that Dev Anand’s magic spell is still upon us and it will be there as long as Hindi movies and HFM will be there. It is not only the people of older generations of my generation who are the ‘fans’ of Dev Anand but even the newer generations and music lovers have fallen in love of him and his songs.

On the occasion of Dev Anand’s ‘remembrance day’ today I am presenting a lesser heard song from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Prem Shastra’. I vaguely remember that this movie was scheduled to be screened in our ‘colony’ in the early eighties but it was cancelled later.

“Prem Shastra-1974” was directed by B.R. Ishara for ‘Nalanda Arts, Bombay.

It was produced by Amar Jeet.

It had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Bindu, I.S. Johar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Sajjan, Anwar Hussain, Murad, Asit Sen, David, Mumtaz Begam, Dulari, Manhar Desai, Mohan Sheri, Lajwanti Sharma, Amrut Patel, Mishrilal and others.

Rehman and Anju Mahendru had a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B.R. Ishara who also directed this movie.
Editing of this movie was done by I.M. Kunnu.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.07.1974 with ‘restricted viewing’ certificate. (However in the later years the ‘restricted viewing’ condition was removed for this movie.).

“Prem Shaastra” had seven soundtracks released with five songs, one theme music track, and one title music soundtrack.

All the songs for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music for them was composed by Lamikant-Pyarelal.

Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle are the only two voices who have sung the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is Dev Anand lip-syncing the song in his ‘characteristic style’. Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Bindu and many others.

I had been longing to introduce this movie on the blog since long and earlier I had planned to present a duet song from this movie. But finally I decided on the today’s song which is a nice song and if we listen to it few times it grows on us.

I had mentioned in my earlier write-ups that I liked such ‘drink driven’ 🙂 songs very much and when you have Kishore Kumar and a Dev Anand combination you are surely going to love it. (Around a month back I had presented a song where the hero of the movie is sings ‘thhodi sharaab pi loon, ho jaaye kuchh sahaara, aye doston tumhe kya ye bhi nahin ganwaara’, but today’s hero is different he publicly ‘announces’ that ‘main sharaab pi rahaa hoon’ 🙂 and warns nobody should ‘disturb’ him):)

Let us listen to today’s song now…

(Note – The audio version of this songs has one extra stanza (the first one) which is not there in the video version of this song.).

With today’s song ‘Prem Shaastra-1974’ makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

“Sohni Mahiwal” (1984) was a Indo-Russian historical romance drama film based on the story of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ – one of the four popular tragic love stories of Punjab & Sindh region; the other three being Sassi Punnun, Mirza Sahiban, & Heer Ranjha; I am sure there may be more such stories in folklore.
“Sohni Mahiwal” has been made by the Hindi film industry a few times- songs from the 1946 and 1958 versions are there on the blog. I have read somewhere that in 1977 BR Films had announced a Punjabi version too with Rajesh Khanna and Neetu Singh in the lead, it never reached completion.

The 1984 version was produced by F.C. Mehra and directed by Umesh Mehra & Latif Faiziyev. This was the second collaboration of the Mehras with the Russians after “Alibaba aur 40 Chor” (1980). At the insistence of the Russians a special role was created for Zeenat Aman- they had liked her in ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’. This was one of Anu Malik’s (the music director for this film) earliest major film.
Sunny Deol and Poonam Dhillon played the star-crossed lovers- this was Sunny Deol’s second film, he was shooting for this when ‘Betaab’ released. Pran, Tanuja, Gulshan Grover, Rakesh Bedi, alongwith a few Russian actors formed the rest of the cast. Shammi Kapoor (a friend of F.C. Mehra) had a tiny guest role and Zeenat Aman was in a supporting role of Zarina the Bandit.

“Hare Rama Hare Krishna” released in January of 1971 i.e. 51 years ago. Pre-production and related activities may have started atleast a year or two earlier i.e. sometime in 1969 or 1970- 52/53 years back. That means our today’s birthday girl has been around in the industry for close to 53 years- unbelievable. Prior to that she was a model who went on to participate in the Femina Miss India contest and on winning there represented India at the Miss Asia- Pacific beauty pageant and winning that title too.

‘Zeenat Aman’ a name that is associated with roles that were different from what the heroines of that era played. It is not as if she didn’t play roles of Saree-clad ladies but most of them were not the wimpy-weepy types. She was most sought after for roles of ladies who were more modern in their looks and thinking. She was a trend setter who didn’t shy away from flaunting her well looked after appearance.
Today when she is turning an year older we shall see her in this dance number from “Sohni Mahiwal” singing an Anand Bakshi written song which was play-backed by Asha Bhonsle. This dance is to help Mahiwal reach the marriage venue of Sohni’s wedding and help the lovers unite. That is Zarina the bandit has a heart of gold.

Wishing Zeenie Baby (as she used to be called fondly) all health and cheer.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Indian Idol’ a program that is aired on a satellite television channel has episodes that have contestants sing songs that are topical or paying tribute to legends of yesteryears. So we have had episodes dedicated to Kalyanji-Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Tanuja, Sharmila Tagore etc. I was super disappointed to have missed a few episodes- ones that celebrated Kishore Kumar, 75 years of Rajshri Productions etc. Thanks to Apps of the various channels we are able to see these episodes at will and the one episode I regretted missing is the one that was telecast on 5th November. It was a supremely surprising episode that featured Meenakshi Seshadri.

Yes, Meenakshi Seshadri is in the country currently and this must have been her first public appearance. She spoke of her life post marriage and how she didn’t regret giving up acting & the fame/grind associated with life in front of the camera. She spoke of how she is learning to cook and that itself was so cutely said that she came across as being totally humble. She still has looks that will make people fall in love with her all over again, after all these years.
Today she is turning a year older and let us wish her All the Best for her future endeavours. She is still continuing her dance and recitals, maybe that is the secret of her looking the way she currently does.

The song with this post is from “Shahanshah” (1988) which had music by Amar-Utpal & lyrics by Anand Bakshi. The song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. It shows Meenakshi Seshadri performing in a dance form that is completely different from her forte’. She looks comfortable even in an ‘Item Number’.
In the run up to this post I revisited the only song posted, from “Shahanhshah” and discovered a vital piece of information in that post. Don’t know how I missed what is mentioned there- Amar-Utpal are the sons of the legendary Anil Biswas.

Happy Birthday Shashikala Seshadri popular as Meenakshi Seshadri.


Song-Gardish mein jab jaam aayenge (Shahanshah)(1988) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Amar Utpal

“Dhun-1996” was directed by Mahesh Bhatt. It was produced by Beena Aziz. It had Talat Aziz, Sangeeta Bijlani, Swapna, Anupam Kher, Avtar Gill, Mushtaq Khan, Javed Khan, Makrand Deshpande, Suhas Bhalekar, G.P. Singh and others.

Lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.01.1996.

Today 11th November 2022 is the sixty-seventh birthday of the renowned Ghazal Singer Talat Aziz.

Talat Aziz was born on 11th November 1956 in Hyderabad, India.

Here is a brief about his biography and his journey to films which I have taken from an online website which had this long biography of him mentioned with one of his LP record. I have not taken it in all but edited it for a brief presentation here today.

***

Aziz was born to Abdul Azeem Khan and Sajida Abid, a famous Urdu writer and poet. He attended Hyderabad Public School and then joined The Indian Institute of Management and Commerce for his B.Com (Hons) Course.

His family loved fine arts and used to organise Mehfils in their house, inviting artists and poets like Jagjit Singh and Jan Nisar Akhtar. This greatly influenced him and he started learning music from an early age. Aziz is married to Bina Aziz, a famous painter and art curator. They have two sons, Adnan Aziz and Shayaan Aziz.

Talat Aziz took his initial training in music from Kirana Gharana. He was trained primarily by Ustad Samad Khan and later by Ustad Faiyyaz Ahmed Khan. After the initial training, Aziz learnt music from the Ghazal maestro Mehdi Hassan. On many occasions, like on a concert tour of the US and Canada in 1986, he shared the stage with him on concerts in India and abroad. Mehdi Hasan Saheb once remarked on Talat’s purity of voice and how well he learnt and imbibed Mehdi Saheb’s knowledge and ‘gaayaki’ and yet carving his own path.

He released his first album in Feb 1980, under the baton of Jagjit Singh. Jagjit Singh composed this album titled ‘Jagjit Singh presents Talat Aziz’. This was a runaway hit and the ghazals from this album like ‘Kaise Sukoon Paoon, Chahenge Tujhe par… to name a few which are still favourites of all ghazal lovers.
Subsequently in 1981 Khayyam Saheb the legendary music director introduced Talat Aziz in the classic film ‘Umrao Jaan’ with the famous ghazal’ Zindagi Jab bhi’ and followed it by ‘Bazaar’, with the immortal ghazal ‘ Phir Chhidi Raat’ which he sang along with Lata Mangeshkar.

He has also sung film songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal in the film Dhun (where he also acted as a main lead and sang a bhajan along with Mehdi Hasan). Also the song he sung under Rajesh Roshan in the film ‘Daddy ‘ Aaina mujhse meri’ which became very popular.

All these numbers are still most sought after in his concerts. Talat has also composed music for ‘TV serials’ and has also acted in several of them. He composed music for ‘tele-serials’ like ‘Deewar’, ‘Baaz’, ‘Adhikaar’, ‘Ghutan’, ‘Sailaab’, ‘Aashirwaad’ and the magnum opus, ‘Noorjehan’. He also composed the music and sang too for a feature film titled ‘Majaz-Ae Ghame dil’ recently in ‘2016’. This film was produced by Shakeel Akhtar and was a biography of the iconic poet ‘Majaz Luckhnawi’. As an actor he has acted in serials like ‘Sahil’, ‘Manzil’, ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Parayee’ and Noorjehan a TV serial written by Nida Fazli.

***

There is a long list of his celebrity friends from his fraternity and of course from the film industry as well. There are many famous public and political personalities who appreciated him and are a big admirers of him. There is also a long list of his concerts and the feathers which he has in his cap coming for the appreciation of his art and love people showered on him.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Dhun’. This song has been in my memory since long though I am now forgetting the dates. I think the album of this movie was released in ‘1991’ as mentioned in the above article, but as per’ Hindi Filmography’ (1986-2000) this movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.01.1996.

(I am some time loosing track of those years in my life 🙂 ).

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

The above article also mentions the following about this movie.

‘Dhun’ which was directed by Mahesh Bhatt where had Talat Aziz and his co-stars were Anupam Kher and Sangeeta Bijlani with the music by Laxmikant Pyarelal and lyrics by Anand Bakshi. The music album was released by HMV in 1991 at a glittering event where all the who’s who of the Indian Film industry were present. The music album was a hit. Songs like ‘Yaad Aane wale’, ‘Laagi Prem dhun laagi’, ‘Main Aatma’ are still remembered by music lovers. One interesting fact is that Mehdi Hasan sang a bhajan along with Talat “Main aatma tu Parmaatma” for the first time in an Indian film.

When I fall in love with music I was always aware of the songs Talat Aziz sung for ‘Umrao Jaan’ and ‘Baazaar’ but during those years (1985-1988) I came across his ghazal album ‘Suroor’ which had the ‘ghazal’ ‘aisa lagtaa hai zindagi tum ho’ which I liked very much and love it very much even now. Those days one of my bosses who was interested more in listening ghazals had a lot of collection of cassettes and I got to listen many of Talat Aziz’s albums then.

Today, I am more than happy that I had this opportunity to present a song and wishing a very happy birthday to Talaz Aziz Saab on the blog.

We wish him a very happy and cheerful birthday with a happy, healthy, wealthy and peaceful life ahead in the future.

Let us now enjoy today’s composition …

With this song, this movie ‘Dhun-1996’ makes its debut on the blog.

ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho jaagi
prem dhun jaagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
prem ki dhun mein
ek deewaanaa
saari raat na soya
prem ki dhun mein
ek deewaani
saari raat jaagi
re jaagi
laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho jaagi prem dhun jaagi

sabse chhupke
chori chori
miltey rahe chaand chakori
sabse chhupke
chori chori
miltey rahe chaand chakori
khoob chali ye aankh michauri
aankh michauri
jab tak baat rahi ghar mein
ye bhed na koyi jaanaa
akhbaaron mein khabar chhapi
jab ladki ghar se bhaagi re bhaagi
laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho jaagi prem dhun jaagi

prem
prem ka koyi naam na lena
haathon se dil thhaam na lena
prem ka koyi naam na lena
haathon se dil thhaam na lena
sar pe ye ilzaam na lena
naam na lena
prem se isiliye to sabko
log manaa karte hain
prem mein chhodke duniya
kitne log huye bairaagi
re laagi
laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho jaagi prem dhun jaagi

la la la la la la la la la la laa
la la la la la laa
la la la la la la la la la la laa
la la la la la laa

koyi isko chhoo na paaye
aankhon se dekhi na jaaye
koyi isko chhoo na paaye
aankhon se dekhi na jaaye
cheez hai ye kya haaye haaye
haaye haaye
prem ki dhun aataa jaata
ik mast hawaa ka jhonka
koyi pakad sakaa na peechhe
saari duniya bhaagi
re bhaagi
laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi

ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi

prem ki dhun jo sun letaa
wo rehtaa nahin akela
laakhon aur hazaaron uske
ban jaate hain saathi
re saathi
laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho jaagi prem dhun laagi

(ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho jaagi prem dhun jaagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
ho laagi prem dhun laagi
