“Khilona”(1970) was directed by Chandar Vohra for Prasad Productions, Madras. the movie had Sanjeev Kumar,, Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Durga Khote, Bipin Gupta, Ramesh Deo, Chaand Usmaani, Shabnam, Malika, Jaishree, Shatrughan Singha, Jagdeep, Aruna Roy, Mridula, Jagnu Jain, Guddi, Master Satyajit etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Khilona”(1970) to appear in the blog. This song is a Hinglish song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a “making someone jealous” genre of light hearted song. I have not seen the movie, so I can only guess what the picturisation is all about. it appears to me that Jagdeep wants to amke his wife (played by Malika) jealous and for that he plays the ruse of singing this romantic son with Rosie (played by Shabnam) in a part. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell me if my guess is correct.

With this song, “Khilona”(1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Roz roz rosie tumko pyaar karta hai (Khilona)(1970) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Special Voices of the 1970s – 1 # Shailendra Singh #
———————————————–———————————-

We have already begun yet another new year full of music and nostalgia on this blog. As we leave the past year behind us, it must have added some memories and moments to cherish for every one of us and in turn adding more memorable moments to our existing ‘nostalgia bank’.

Some may have got opportunities to travel, (I wish one should travel a lot) and meet peoples from different walks of life, enjoy the diversity of our own culture by visiting parts of the country hitherto not visited and enjoy the variety of cuisines across our great country (or may be abroad, if one gets a chance) and leave behind and gather some unforgettable memories and learnings too 🙂

Aadmi musaafir hai aata jaata hai

And that is how days and years pass by and we continue with the journey of our life still missing those beautiful days but enjoying relishing the memories (Beete Huye Lamhon Ki Kasak Saath To Hogi) and the times, which after a gap of some years become more and more nostalgic for us. And ‘nostalgia’ is yet another, or stronger, reason (for me it is) that we enjoy music, movies, and the memories associated and connected with them.

In my childhood days this song “Sabko Mubaarak Naya Saal” used to be played on New Year day and another song “Khush Hai Zamaana Aaj Pehli Taarikh Hai” was a favorite on every first day of a new month. And like this many other songs that we have been listening over the years or that one listens during different stages of life easily become part of our memories. We also keep adding new songs by listening or watching them in new movies around. Or even some old songs which we are listening first time and they were not known to us till this date.

Now if one is associated with a blog called atulsongaday.me and who is aware of that till 1980 only we have around 40,000 songs from Hindi movies, one is surely to get more ‘aware’ of many songs and looking to it as a ‘creation’ and not merely holding one’s list of favorite songs which one has been carrying over the years and had not been aware of the ‘treasure trove’ of ‘movie songs’ one has not listened to.

Some songs continue with their old listeners with new addition of more songs and some older songs/voices tend to find new listeners /fans from new generations too. And as Gulzar Saab has rightly put it in one of his albums ‘Fursat Ke Raat Din’…

geet kabhi boodhhe nahin hote
unke chehron par jhurriyaan nahin girti….

wo palte rehte hain, chalte rehte hain

Beginning of a new year also gives us an opportunity to start new things and make new resolutions too. In one of my previous employment, my boss always said that the first day or ‘pehli taarikh’ is always the best day to start a new thing or take on a new goal if one is wishing to do so. This post was supposed to be there on 1st Jan, but it got delayed due to ‘technical problems’ 🙂 and later on due to ‘unforeseen situations’ – no, no, not ‘acts of God’ 🙂 . Nevertheless, if we listen to the song and what has been said in this song, one can take the words (said in this song) for ones ‘new year resolution’ too 🙂

And as a part of initiating something ‘new’ in this ‘new year’ I am going to share this new series representing my thoughts and songs sung by some ‘special voices’ (I don’t know if I can call them as ‘unique voices’) which were there in the ‘decade of seventies’ and yes in their own way they have left an indelible mark on the minds of music lovers – may be only for those who have grown up during end sixties – to end seventies – or even till early eighties.

I sincerely hope that all of us are going to enjoy these voices who have been part of my growing years and may be of others of my era too.

The voice – Singer Shailendra Singh

Singer and actor Shailendra Singh was born in Mumbai on 4th October 1952. He came from a Punjabi family but since he grow up in Mumbai he could not talk fluently in Punjabi (even till date, I think).

Shailendra Singh’s father was associated with V. Shantaram ji as a Chief Assistant Director and later on with Rajshri Productions (as a ‘Publicity Officer’ from ‘Dosti’), so he comes from a family having ‘film background’ and it was natural for him to get attracted to movies. After his schooling with ‘Hill Green High School’, Feder Road, Bombay, he joined the St Xavier’s College in Mumbai but later he left his studies in third year as he was interested in acting, and given to his looks he wanted to be an actor. So, he joined the ‘Film and Television Institute’ at Pune when he was around eighteen in 1971 in acting course.

He was also learning music or rather singing from his childhood days but not to become as a ‘playback singer’. He was more interested in singing ‘ghazals’ first and was singing the ‘film songs’ as an ‘amateurish’. It so happened that Raj Kapoor was looking for a new voice to launch Rishi Kapoor in ‘Bobby’ (1973). VP Sathe (of ‘Bombay Publicity’) was a close friend of Shailendra Singh’s father. And VP Sathe and KA Abbas had been working jointly as script writer for Raj Kapoor.

Now being close to Shailendra Singh’s family VP Sathe was aware of Shailendra Singh’s singing abilities. So, when Raj Kapoor was looking for a new voice he suggested Shailendra Singh’s name. At that time Shailendra Singh was pursuing his course in acting at the FTII, Poona and was in second year (of two-year course). He was called for the voice test by Raj Kapoor. Raj Kapoor took him to Laxmikant-Pyarelal where Laxmikant take his test with four or five musicians (and one them was Rajesh Roshan).

After few days Shailendra Singh was told about his selection and the first song he recorded was “Main Shaayar To Nahin” for ‘Bobby’ (1973). This was also the ‘muhurat‘ song for the film. Lata Mangeshkar was also present there to bless him on the occasion.

Shailendra Singh has very high regards for all the legendary singers – Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh, Manna Dey, and Mahendra Kapoor – and who were senior to him when he joined the industry. And he get a chance to sing with them which till then was his dream. He is a great fan of Rafi Saab and among the singers Rafi Saab is his idol.  The song “Tere Mere Sapne Ab Ek Rang Hain” sung by Rafi Saab is his most favorite Rafi song. So when he got this opportunity to sing with Rafi Saab, it was like a dream coming true for him. The first duet he sang with Rafi Saab is for this movie ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977); and the song – “Bure Kaam Ka Bura Natija, Kyun Bhai Chacha, Haan Bhatija”. This song stood at number twenty-one of the annual Binaca Geetmala of that year 1977.

He was spotted by Manmohan Desai to sing for this movie when he was already selected for ‘Bobby’. However, Manmohan Desai assured Raj Kapoor that his movie will be released only after ‘Bobby’ was released. The songs of ‘Bobby’ became very popular then and Shailendra Singh was nominated for the ‘Best Male Playback Singer’ for the song “Main Shaayar To Nahin’. But the he didn’t win for that.

He got his first acting break for the movie ‘Do Jaasoos’ (1975). Later on, he also acted in his father’s home production ‘Agreement’ (1980), and he has had a guest appearance in ‘Naukar’ (1979) and Mehmood’s – ‘Janta Hawaldar’ (1979). He acted in a Bengali film as a hero with Aparna Sen and the movie was ‘Ajosro Dhanyobaad (Many Many Thanks).

I remember watching ‘Do Jaasoos’ with my uncle and its songs are there in my memory since then. And particularly this one song of the movie – “Purvaiyya Le Ke Chali Meri Naiyya’ sung by Shailendra Singh and Lata Mangeshkar is the one which whenever I listen I get transported to that timeline and gives me entirely different nostalgic feeling again.

In my childhood the songs from the movie ‘Bobby’ were also there and they were frequently played on loudspeakers/radio, but may be since I had not watched this movie its songs did not appeal much to my impressionable mind. Whereas songs from the movie ‘Rafoo Chakkar’ and particularly this song “Tumko o Mere Dil Ne” is another one which is my all-time favorite and it brings back memories.

Then there are songs like “Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi Aisa Ho Jaata Hai“, “Gumche Lage Hain Gehne”, “Meri Dilruba Tujhko Aana Padega”, “Mere Bas Mein Agar Kuchh Hota”, “Hum Ne Tum Ko Dekha, Tum Ne Hum Ko Dekha Aise“, “Hoga Tumse Pyaara Kaun’ (from the early eighties). There are many of his songs which I like or which have been popular, however I have mentioned above only those songs which give me ‘nostalgic’ feeling most.

His singing career had been active during the seventies and eighties but later on the new offerings to him got reduced (as told by him in his interview available on YT) as new singers keep coming. So far “Jaipur Se Nikli Gaadi” for ‘Gurudev-1993’, has remained as his last song for the movies.

Coming back to the movie of the song being presented today – ‘Chacha Bhatija’ is a ‘Dreamland’ presentation. It was produced by Baldev Pushkarna and MM Malhotra, and is directed by Manmohan Desai. The star cast includes Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Randhir Kapoor, Yogita Bali, Rehman, Anwar Hussain, Indrani Mukherjee, Jeevan, Roopesh Kumar, Sonia Sahani, Hari Shivdasani, Dev Kumar, Durga Khote, Satyajit, Tuntun, Sunder, Bhagwan, Hercules and Keshto Mukherjee. The lyrics of this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant – Pyarelal composed the music. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Shailendra Singh gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Story of this movie is written by Prayag Raj. Its screenplay and dialogues are written by Salim-Javed. This movie was edited by Kamlakar. It was passed by Censor Board on 08.03.1977.

 I remember watching this movie in my childhood (may be with my parents), and almost all of its songs have remained in my memory since then. The movie has total seven songs in it. And I think that all its songs are nice hummable songs though only one song from this movie make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ that year in 1977 and the song was – “Bure Kaam Ka Bura Natija, Kyun Bhai Chacha, Haan Bhatija”.

However, today’s song is closer to my heart and very nostalgic for me. Randhir Kapoor is lip syncing for Shailendra Singh’s voice and we can see Yogita Bali, Roopesh Kumar, Rehman and others in the picturisation of this song.

In the video version of this song there are only two stanzas whereas the audio that I had taken from online sources seven-eight years back is having three stanzas. Both versions are provided with the song.

(Sources – Shailendra Singh’s interview on Rajya Sabha TV and Divine Melodies available on YouTube).

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song …

Hindi movie songs of the golden era tended to have certain standard son situations. The lyricists were asked to provide lyrics for those situations. And it must be said that the lyricists often managed to do some value additions of their own even in these routine song situations.

Take mujra songs for instance. Almost every Hindi movie of those days tended to have a mujra song situation. This blog itself has as many as 207 mujra songs as of now. And quite a few of these songs have ended up becoming memorable songs.

“Joru Ka Ghulam”(1972) was a “social” movie which was directed by A Bhim Singh for United Four, Bombay. The movie had Nanda, Rajesh Khanna, Om Prakash, Sharad Kumar, Maneesha, Achla Sachdev, Kedar Sahgal, Ramesh Deo, Gurnaam, Mridula, Jayshree T, Narbada Shankar, Kabeer, Moolchand etc with guest appearances by Komal, Manmohan Krishn, Nana Palsikar and Ifthikar.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs (every song being of a separate genre) have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth and final song from the movie. And this song happens to be a mujra song. It is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Anand Bakshi has come up with interesting lyrics for this mujra song. The song is picturised on Jayshree T and Ramesh Deo plays her customer in the kotha.

I had never heard this song before and I must say that I liked this song right from the very firdst time that i heard it, which was today, some 46 years after this song was released. 🙂

With this song, “Joru Ka Ghulam”(1972) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Jaam par jaam peene se kya faaydaa (Joru Ka Ghulaam)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

“Dostaana” (1980) was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Raj Khosla for Dharma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, Helen, Pran, Jaageerdaar, Sajjan, Ifthikhar, K N Singh, Trilok Kapoor, Ruby Meyers, Jagdish Raj, Sudhir, Mc Mohan, Sharat Saena, Sudha Chopda, Paintal (guest appearance), Abhimanyu Sharma, Colonel Kapoor, Mohan Sherry, Birbal, Yunus Parwez, Goga Kapoor, Vikas Anand, Prem Sagar, Keshav Rana, Master Rajesh Valecha, Darshan etc in it.

The movie had Five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. In other words, this movie is lined up for being YIPPEED. I was looking to YIPPEE some other movie today, but I found that I had miscalculated and that movie stil had some other song yet to be covered. Then I looked for another movie and there too I was off by one song. So instead of losing more time, I decided to use this movie which is a low hanging fruit for me, viz I am certain that it is the final song of the movie and secondly its lyrics are readily available with me.

The lyrics of this song has been sent to me by Prakashchandra. The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Most songs of the movie were get-together/ party songs and this song is no exception. This “sentimental” song is lip synced by Zeenat Aman with other lead characters dutifully in attendance.

The songs of this movie were quite popular at that time and continue to be so. Personally I did not like the songs all that much and it is only recently that I have grudgingly started to like them. 🙂

With this song, “Dostaana” (1980) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

PS-Did anyone noticed that Laxmikant Pyarelal have composed for movies titled “Dost”, “Dosti” as well as “Dostaana” ? 🙂 And all these movies are YIPPEED in the blog. 🙂


Song-Kitna aasaan hai kehna bhool jaao (Dostaana)(1980) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

kitnaa aasaan hai kehnaa bhool jaao

kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa ho

kitnaa mushqil hai par bhool jaanaa

Today (4 january 2017) is the 23rd death anniversary of R D Burman (27 june 1939- 4 january 1994). He was only 54 years old when he passed away which is considered prime of one’s life in most fields. To HFM followers like me, he was a legend since late 1960s itself, when he was just in his late 20s and early 30s.

The influence of R D Burman on HFM is something that can not be visualised by those who did not live during that era. I have read someone’s view based on statistics that late 1960s and 1970s was the era of Laxmikant Pyarelal rather than R D Burman. The person obviously did not live through the era and did not experience the phenomena of R D Burman first hand.

A lot has been written on R D Burman by now and there is no use repeating all that because most people are already aware of those facts.

With the benefit of hindsight, one feels that R D Burman had it easy because he was the son of a legendary music director, but that was hardly the case. Getting the first break as an independent music director was a tall order and he got this break thanks to Mehmood. The musical scores of his debut movie “Chhote Nawaab”(1961) did satisfactorily well, but R D Burman failed to get any assignments after that. It was again Mehmood who gave him his second assignment four years later, which was “Bhoot Bangla”(1965).

The turning point for R D Burman was landing the assignment of “Teesri Manzil”(1966) and for that he was required to convince Shammi Kapoor who was a diehard Shankar Jaikishan supporter. How R D Burman won over Shammi Kapoor is a tale that is well known to R D Burman fans. That episode was a turning point, not just for the career of R D Burman, but for HFM as well.

The very first R D Burman composition that I may have heard in my life has to be “mere saamne waali khidki mein ik chaand ka tukda rehta hai”. It was evening time in late 1960s and this song was played on radio. I instantly loved this song. I was too young to know about the concept of music directors, lyricists etc. I only knew that it was the singer who did all the work. 🙂 And I was not even aware who the singer was, seeing that this voice did not resemble Rafi or Mukesh, the only two male singers that I was familiar with at that time. It was my “mama”, who was at hand who exclaimed that Atul liked Kishore Kumar. That is when Ibecame aware that this song was sung by a singer called Kishore Kumar.

The fact that this song was composed by R D Burman became known to me a few years later when I became aware about the concept of music director and lyricist.

The very first time I heard R D Burman singing was when I watched the movie “Apna Desh”(1972). The fact that one is allowed to sing in a movie with that kind of voice was a paradigm shifting experience for me. 🙂

During late 1960s to entire 1970s, I was a diehard R D Burman (and Kishore Kumar) fan. Most great songs of that era were composed by R D Burman. No doubt there were other leading composers as well, but it was R D Burman who was the golden standard at that time. Most other music directors would often try to compose music like R D Burman and those compositions would often end up as pale imitation.

It is not that I liked all R D Burman compositions. There were some of his songs that I regarded as examples of falling standards of HFM as well as that of R D Burman. For instance , I disliked songs of “Do Chor”(1972), “Chalta Purza”(1976), “Khel Khel Mein” (1975), “Jhoothha Kahin Ka”(1979) etc. And today the songs of these movies are counted as iconic songs ! Even I have grudgingly started liking them because even the “low” quality fare dished by R d Burman is of far better quality that the “best” stuff of music directors who followed in HFM in 1980s and beyond.

Two songs of R D Burman have already been covered in the blog today as a tribute to him. I originally did not plan to discuss him. My aim was to discuss a YIPPEE movie song for the day and I had originally selected compositon of another music director. But I could not locate that writeup. On glancing through the various movies of R D Burman, I realised that there were a few of his movies where just one song was left to be covered.

That is how I zeroed in on this R D Burman composition from “Baalika Badhu”(1976). This movie was directed by Tarun Majumdar for Shakti Films, Bombay. The movie, which was a remake of a Banngla movie by the same name, had Sachin, Rajni Sharma (title role and new discovery), Kajri, Asrani, A K Hangal, Om Shivpuri, Asit Sen, Urmila Bhatt, Preeti Ganguly, Manik Dutt, Master Panna, Leela Mishra, Subrat, Amal sen, Keshav Rana, Shameem, Shailly Shailendra, Kanu Roy, Mukund, S N Banneji, Shanti Chatterji, Birbal, Polson, Darshan, Nandu Bhattacharya etc, with special appearances by Prem Narayan and Paintal.

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have already been covered. The sixth and final song was elusive when I last searched for it. But when I searched for it again today, I was in luck and I could locate it. and it appears a suitable song for the occasion as well.

The audio record of this song is sung by Anand Bakshi who is the lyricist as well, Music is of course composed by R d Burman. The picturised versions are partial (gets played twice, or may be on more occasins as background song). The picturised version is sung by Bhupinder Singh.

With this song, all songs from “Baalika Badhu”(1976) have been covered in the blog and thus “Baalika Badhu”(1976) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. And this movie becomes the 62nd R D Burman to be YIPPEED in the blog.

dekhen pahunche kaun kahaan par
raahi nikla gaata hansta
dekhen pahunche kaun kahaan par
raahi nikla gaata hansta
sabki apni-apni manzil
apnaa-apnaa rastaa

lagaa hai aana jaana

chaar dinon kaa mel re bhaiyaa
jisne saare khel rachaaye
chaar dinon kaa mel re bhaiyaa
jisne saare khel rachaaye
maan bachcho se milne aaye
phir waapas ghar jaaye
o jogi
ye dastoor puraana
lagaa hai aana jaana
jagat musaafir khaana
lagaa hai aana jaana

Anand Bakshi- R. D. Burman- Kishore Kumar- Rajesh Khanna. This is one combination that spelt wonders for all Hindi film music lovers across the globe. This is a combo which gave us melodies, in the 70s, in films like Kati Patang, The Train, Apna Desh, Amar Prem, Raja Rani, Namak Haraam, Aap Ki Kasam, Ajnabee etc. The trend followed in the 80s too with movies like Ashanti, Hum Dono (yes there are three films by this name in Bollywood), Awaaz, Alag Alag, etc.

Ok why am I listing all this? Because I have been listening to a lot of RD Burman songs since morning and thinking how his music sounds good even after a lapse of about 35 years. Of course, he did compose music in films in the 90s but most of the movies (with RDB music) post 1988 kept failing at the box office. So much so, that his musical contribution went mostly unnoticed—”Gardish” in 1993 with a song like “Hum na samjhe thhe baat bas itni si khwab seeshe ki duniya pathar ki” etc. The magic seemed to have vanished. An anecdote by Vidoo Vinod Chopra goes like this: he had gone to sign RD for his “1942-A Love Story”. And wen he heard what RD had composed he was not happy with the way it sounded. Vinod Chopra has said in many interviews that RD didn’t know why his music was not working amongst his fans and he was finding it difficult to find his moorings. And the final score that we hear in that movie came out after ‘N’ number of sittings. But unfortunately, RD never lived to enjoy his success post “1942- a Love Story”.

But we, the fans of RD Burman, clutch at any song of his that triggers memories of his great days. And today I have one such song from the 1984 release “Awaaz”. This movie starred Rajesh Khanna, Rakesh Roshan, Suresh Oberoi, Jaya Prada, Supriya Pathak, Amrish Puri, Madan Puri etc. the movie had one other distinction – it was a coming together of the Rajesh- Shakti Samanta team post “Anurodh” in 1977. Today’s song is a party song. Probably a marriage anniversary of Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Prada where we find his sister Supriya Pathak, friend Suresh Oberoi with his wife (in the movie 🙂 ) Beena, and Rakesh Roshan as his to-be brother-in-law enjoying the song. Only one Song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Missing you R D Burman.

“Dostaana” (1980) was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Raj Khosla for Dharma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, Helen, Pran, Jaageerdaar, Sajjan, Ifthikhar, K N Singh, Trilok Kapoor, Ruby Meyers, Jagdish Raj, Sudhir, Mc Mohan, Sharat Saena, Sudha Chopda, Paintal (guest appearance), Abhimanyu Sharma, Colonel Kapoor, Mohan Sherry, Birbal, Yunus Parwez, Goga Kapoor, Vikas Anand, Prem Sagar, Keshav Rana, Master Rajesh Valecha, Darshan etc in it.

The movie had Five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Dostaana” (1980) to appear in the blog. This song is a party song. Amitabh Bachchan, playing a policewala (what else) is present in a get together with Zeenat Aman. His friends request him to sing a song. Zeenat Aman, who knows him as a no nonsense cop is skeptical about his ability to sing a song. She obviously does not known much about the talents that a Hindi movie hero possesses. 🙂

This song then follows, much to the surprise of Zeenat Aman. In this song, certain rather uncharitable observations are made about a scantily clad female out on streets attracting undue attentions from roadside romeos. Hindi movies songs like this should come with a disclaimer that the resemblence or otherwise of the haseena described in the song with the leading lady may or may not be a coincidence. 🙂

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The picturisation shows Amitabh Bachchan lip syncing the song with Zeenat Aman and many others also present.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra long back.


Song-Bahut khoobsoorat jawaan ek ladki (Dostaana)(1980) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

bahut khoobsoorat jawaan ek ladki
kukoo
sadak pe akeli chali ja rahi thhi
fakat naam ko usne pahne thhe kapde
ajanta ki moorat nazar aa rahi thhi

wo nikli thhi ghar se
na dekhe koi to sharaafat hai uski
jo dekhe to kuchh bhi chhupe na nazar se
chhupe na nazar se
koi diljala muft maara gaya
koi diljala muft maara gaya
mere doston
tum karo faisla

haseen to hamesha haseen thhe magar
haseen to hamesha haseen thhe magar,
kabhi raaston pe nikalte na thhe
badalte thhe wo bhi kai roop lekin
naye roz fashion badalte na thhe

Just five days ago, I’d written a post here paying tribute to one of the most loved legends of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, on his birth anniversary. Referred to by many (including me) as Rafisaab, he was a giant in his field. Yet  he remained humble to his last day, never letting success get to his head. He treated everyone with great respect and, in turn, earned the respect of everyone he interacted with.

Today we pay tribute to another legend of the industry on his birth anniversary. Also a superstar in his own right, albeit for a relatively short period of time, he was possibly the best antithesis of Rafisaab in terms of letting success get to his head, treating everyone with great respect, and in turn, earning respect of everyone he interacted with. Thus his career, and his life, turned out to be very different from Rafisaab’s. Everyone goes through ups and downs in his career – and both this person and Rafisaab are not exceptions to this phenomenon.

Yet, even in his “downs”, there were those who stood by Rafisaab. The goodwill he had earned earlier stood him in good stead. On the other hand though, this other legendary person was not so lucky. His airs and rather dismissive (to use the most charitable term I can think of) treatment of others during his heyday, came back to haunt him when he was on his way down.  He hadn’t built enough goodwill, his relationships were damaged – this only hastened his downfall. Although he made a somewhat modest recovery later, and even admitted to his earlier mistakes, his image as an arrogant, even mean and vindictive, person stayed till his last day.

This world can be so unforgiving.

By now, I’m sure everyone knows who I am talking about. The one-time superstar of Hindi cinema, the one who at one time could deliver a superhit even if the main character in his film was an elephant, the one whose mere smile and slight shake of the head had audiences in a swoon, the one who set off a rage of buttoned-up silk kurtas as a fashion trend – yes, I am talking about Rajesh Khanna.

He would have been 75 today if he’d been alive. But he didn’t live to even see 70 – he died in 2012, when still just 69. Although he’d been ailing for a while, news of his death still shocked me – I wrote a blogpost on the occasion on my blog, in tribute to him.

See, here’s the thing. I don’t, for one moment, defend Rajesh Khanna for all his wrongdoings, his arrogance, any charges that anyone might level against him. If true, he must rightly be called out for them.  So  if anyone is trying to troll me by pointing out his failings (this happens sometimes) and expecting me to defend Rajesh Khanna, it won’t work – I will probably wholeheartedly agree with them. I am not living in denial about his misdeeds.

Yet, I can also not deny that Rajesh Khanna’s films provided me with a lot of entertainment and fun in my childhood days, of which I still have very fond memories. It just so happened that his superstar days coincided almost exactly with the time that I was watching Hindi films as a young boy. I have a sort of attachment towards him that is hard to explain –  considering everything else. It of course need not have been so. Atul too is of my era – and he has no such attachment.  Fair enough. I happen to have it – and even now, I sometimes watch videos of Rajesh Khanna songs of that 1969-1973 period, and get transported to that period.

I distinctly remember watching him then in songs like “Gussa Itna Haseen Hai  To Pyar Kaisa Hoga” (‘Maryada’), “Yahaan Wahaan Saare Jahaan Mein Tera Raaj Hai” (‘Aan Milo Sajna’), “Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, and “Pyaar Deewaana Hota Hai” (all three from ‘Kati Patang’ – one of my favourite films at the time),  “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona” (‘Apna Desh’), “Vaada Tera Vaada” (‘Dushman’), “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” (‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’)  and many more songs – and enjoying these songs and his mannerisms a lot.

I was very young then – and initially thought he was singing these songs himself. 🙂 When I was told he was only the actor in front of the camera and that someone else (in this case, Kishore Kumar) was the singer, I remember being a bit disappointed. But that did not take away from the enjoyment of the songs, or his mannerisms, or the films. Later on, when his mannerisms became forced and began to jar, the long hair (which was a fashion at the time)  made him look less appealing to me, and the quality of films too began dropping, the charm wore off, not only for India’s masses, but also for me. (After all, I also belonged to those masses).

But for the memories of those few early years, I have always had a soft corner for Rajesh Khanna. That sideways tilt of the head, that dialogue delivery (check out the dialogue just before the song “Daanton Taley Dabaa Kar Honth” from ‘Doli’ – the video is available on YouTube – and you will know what I mean). These are the memories of him I always keep with me. I have not watched many of his later films – maybe because I want to keep his 1969-73 image in my mind and not  a 1985 one. Having said that, I’ve heard that some of his 1980s films are worth a watch – so I think I will give them a try.

So, to summarise, yes, Rajesh Khanna had a lot of faults – more than probably any other actor. But he also had a meteoric rise that no other actor had – and , while he need not have let success get to his head – he was also only human. Sometimes maybe you do need extremes to make a point.

Maybe it is examples like Rafisaab (or probably for a more modern generation, Rahul Dravid) and Rajesh Khanna that can be held up for youngsters. When you achieve success, make sure you don’t lose your head. Make sure you follow the Rafisaab (or Dravid) example, not the Rajesh Khanna one. I don’t think Rajesh Khanna himself would mind this. Much later in life, he did realize his mistakes – and warned other youngsters not to fall prey to their own success. A lesson learnt the hard way.

Coming to the song for today. As always with Rajesh Khanna songs, I prefer to roll back the years and  go back to the Rajesh Khanna of 1969-73. The film si ‘Joru Ka Ghulaam’ (1972) – one of the films I distinctly remember from my childhood days. It is not one of Rajesh’s biggest hits, but I remember quite liking the film when I saw it. One of its songs,  “Nainon Mein, Nindiya Hai”, was very popular in its time. But the other songs were also fairly well-known, as was not uncommon for songs from Rajesh Khanna films at the time.

The song is “Baras Gayi Re Taras Gayi Re”. I had marked this song for a write-up the last time I wrote about Rajesh Khanna, but at the last minute, I decided to go with “O Monalisa” from ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’. I was a bit surprised to find that this song was still available for posting – so here goes.

The lyrics have been provided by Avinashji, who, as everyone knows is a big Rajesh Khanna fan. Even bigger than I am. So when I decided to write this up, he immediately offered to provide the lyrics. I gladly accepted. Thank you, Avinashji.

Hope you enjoy this song. It is written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 59 # Rajesh Khanna’s 75th birth anniversary
———————————————–——————————————————-

Today 29th December 2017 is the 75th birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (29.12.1942-18.07.2012).

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Chhaila Babu’.

In the year 1977 there were nine movies (including ‘Tyaag’ which was passed by Censor Board in 1976) of Rajesh Khanna as per following;

SNo Movie Year Date Passed by Censor Board
01 Tyaag 1977 29.07.1976 *
02 Anurodh 1977 31.01.1977
03 Chhaila Babu 1977 20.04.1977
04 Karm 1977 27.04.1977
05 Chalta Purza 1977 16.06.1977
06 Hatyara (Special Appearance) 1977 04.07.1977
07 Aashiq Hoon Bahaaron Ka 1977 18.11.1977
08 Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein 1977 04.11.1977
09 Tinku (Special Appearance) 1977 01.12.1977

From the above list one can conclude that this is a list of flop movies, except ‘Chhaila Babu’ which was a ‘commercially successful movie’, though nowhere in the league as Rajesh Khanna’s earlier hit movies.
Movies like ‘Karm’, ‘Anurodh’, and ‘Palkon Ki Chhaaon Mein’ were ‘critically acclaimed’ though.

‘Chhaila Babu – 1977’ a ‘suspense thriller’ was a Mukherji Brothers Presentation. It was produced by Shomu Mukherjee who also wrote the story and screenplay of this film.

It was directed by Joy Mukherjee.

It had Rajesh Khanna in title role of ‘Chhaila Babu’, and accompanied by Zeenat Amaan, Asrani, Om Shivpuri, Padma Khanna, Achala Sachdev and Ranjeet.

Supported by Jairaj, Ravindra Kapoor, Mac Mohan, Manmohan, Sherry, Gulshan Arora, Ashim Kumar, Shyam, Guru Darshan, Manik Dutt, Qureshi, Uttam, Yeshraj, Vinod Thakkar, Harun, Johny Whisky, Dhanna, Master Salim, Aziz Asser, Raghubir, Prem and others.

Its lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi, and music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Dialogues of this film were written by Kader Khan and it was edited by B.S. Glaad.

I have vague memories of watching this movie with my parents and vaguely remember the movie’s storyline and songs.
I have earlier shared two songs of this movie ‘Kal raat sadak pe ek ladki ’ and ‘Hamko nikaaloge ghar se sajan pachhtaaoge ’.

The most popular song of this movie Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye was the first song to be posted on the blog and it was discussed by Atul ji way back in 2008 (08.12.2008).

The other two songs were posted on 29.12.2014 and 04.02.2015 respectively.

As per HFGK this movie had total Seven songs (including one multiple version song). But, I think it should be six only. This needs to be checked and shall be discussed in future with the remaining song of this movie). Out of these seven songs we have so far three songs already covered on the blog.

I can say that all the songs from this movie are nice hummable song though only this song Yaar dildaar tujhe kaisa chhaahiye could make it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ that year in 1977 and so far it had been the most popular song from this movie. It was ranked 18th in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1977.

However, going back to the songs of this movie and listening to them after a gap of so many years is an interesting exercise and it brings back fond memories of those years.

Today’s song ‘main baaboo chhaila’ is sung by Kishore Kumar and lip synced by Rajesh Khanna on screen. The picturisation of this song shows Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman and Asrani is following them.

After watching the video, I thought it must be shot on the locations in Kashmir (? though not sure), (as the film’s titles do not mention names of any outdoor shooting locations). However, the titles did mention the name of ‘Filmalaya Studios’ where the movie or its parts must have been shot).

Let us revive the magic of ‘Kishore Kumar-Rajesh Khanna’ Jodi, with Kaka’s favorite lyrics writer – Anand Bakshi – there, but for a change – composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us now enjoy today’s song!!

Beemaari peechha na chhode
Aise premi aise paagal
Duniya mein milte hain thhode
Jaane ye hain paan ka chhakkaa
Ya chidiyaa ka nehlaa
Aaj se main ban gayaa re Majnoon
Dekh ke tujhko lailaa
Ha ha haa haa
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa

Hmm o ho o
La la la la la la la la la laa

Ham jaise deewaane aksar
Jaan bhi de dete hain hans kar
Ham jaise deewaane aksar
Jaan bhi de dete hain hans kar
Gham na kar bas shauq se dilbar
Teer chalaaye ja seene par
Toot gaya dil mera to kya
Tera dil to behlaa
Aaj se main ban gayaa re Majnoon
Dekh ke tujhko lailaa
Oye chhailaa
Hey
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa

Ye naam thaa meraa pehlaa
Hmm hmm
Aaj se main ban gayaa re Majnoon
Hmm hmm hmm hmm
Dekh ke tujhko lailaa
Hmm hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm
Main baaboo chhailaa
Chhailaa baaboo
Baaboo chhailaa

La la la la laa
La la la la laa
La la la la laa

लूई शे ए ए
ओ हो हो हो मैं बाबू छैला

सुन ले दिल का ये अफसाना
तेरा मेरा प्यार पुराना
सुन ले दिल का ये अफसाना
तेरा मेरा प्यार पुराना
माना एक बहरूपिया हूँ मैं
लेकिन तेरा हूँ दीवाना
आदत मेरी बुरी सही पर
दिल का मैं नहीं मैला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू

ह हा हां हां

(राजेश खन्ना, जीनत अमान और असरानी के बीच के संवाद जो यहाँ पर शामिल नहीं किये गए हैं)

ये जो अपने पीछे दौड़े
बिमारी पीछा न छोड़े
ये जो अपने पीछे दौड़े
बिमारी पीछा न छोड़े
ऐसे प्रेमी ऐसे पागल
दुनिया में मिलते हैं थोड़े
जाने ये हैं पान का छक्का
या चिड़िया का नहला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
देख के तुझको लैला
ह हा हां हां
मैं बाबू छैला
छैला बाबू

हम जैसे दीवाने अक्सर
जान भी दे देते हैं हंस कर
हम जैसे दीवाने अक्सर
जान भी दे देते हैं हंस कर
गम न कर बस शौक़ से दिलबर
तीर चलाये जा सीने पर
टूट गया दिल मेरा तो क्या
तेरा दिल तो बहला
आज से मैं बन गया रे मजनू
देख के तुझको लैला
ओये छैला
हे

Hullo to Atuldom

We have had two posts today celebrating the birth anniversary of the one and only Mohd. Rafi. And both were excellent posts. Our Avinashji has managed to remember Mahipal’s birth anniversary too. Great job!

Today also happens to be the birthdate of an actor/ star shining in Bollywood since 1984. I won’t say he didn’t struggle to find his place in Bollywood. I won’t say that being the son of a producer made things easy for him. He began by playing one the many young characters in Umesh Mehra’s “Humare Tumhare”. He assisted director Bapu who was then directing “Hum Paanch”. I am talking of Anil Kapoor. It is hard to believe he turns 61 today. I saw a recent movie of his, this morning on one satellite channel where his physique matches his young nephew- Arjun Kapoor- who was his co-actor. I seem to have been seen a lot of movies of his post 1990 when he played a mentor obsessive of his protégé- Taal. He has played a mentally retarded man who is a very understanding and supportive husband in Eeshwar, a modern city educated son of a proud village headman who gets his priorities right when he sees his father hacked to death in Viraasat. Oh, definitely he is a master of all genres when in front of the camera including comedy. I can list out all his collaborations with David Dhawan to prove my point here. But I will pick a movie called “Deewana Mastana” and the rest of the post will explain why this particular movie.

There is one other actor who had his birthday this week. He too, like Anil Kapoor, belonged to a family connected with Bollywood. His father was an actor in the forties till mid-fifties and mother was a classical singer of the Patiala Gharana and also an actress of the forties. Our actor/ star who is their son is one of Arun Kumar Ahuja and Nirmala Devi’s six children- Govinda. His birthday was on 21st and he turned 54 only!!? Should be considering he was born in 1963. He too began his journey in Bollywood in the 80s, playing second fiddle to the likes of Raj Kumar – Marte Dum Tak, Dilip Kumar- Izzatdaar; Dharamendra – Dadagiri and a few more; Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Rajnikant , Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Jeeteedra and all the top stars of that period. He played into the hearts of the audience with his dancing abilities which he had honed after seeing Mithun in Disco Dancer. I remember I was floored by the way he danced in Pahlaj Nihalani’s “Ilzaam” to the “street dancer” song. But he found his comic capabilities on teaming up with David Dhawan and then we were drowned in a sea of ‘No:1’ movies.
Though Deewana Mastana didn’t carry the ‘No:1’ tag it was still a rib-tickler. We had Anil Kapoor as Raja ganging-up with Johnny Lever as Ghafoor against Govinda as Bunnu and trying to woo the beautiful Psychiatrist Dr. Neha (Juhi Chawla). And without resorting to buffoonery these two keep the proceedings lively. All the comedy is through the dialogues. There is one particular scene where Bunnu and Raja discus all the movies that ever-had love-triangles in them and how eventually one person has to sacrifice his love but the movie had a unique ending with both the suitors losing the girl 🙂 .

Today’s song is a party number where the whole cast joins the lead three. It is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the composers. Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Udit Narayan and Vinod Rathod are the singers. The movie was produced by Ketan Desai.

Happy Birthday to Anil Kapoor and belated wishes to Govinda.

Lyrics

Laa lara laa
ishq hazaaron karte hain
par aashiq sabka naam nahin
yeh sab ke bas ka kaam nahin

head ya tail
head ya tail
pyar mohabbat dil ka khel
head ya tail
head ya tail
pyar mohabbat dil ka khel
iss khel mein koi hai pass
iss khel mein koi hai pass
koi hai pass
to koi hai fail

hey
head ya tail

head ya tail
pyar mohabbat dil ka khel
head ya tail

head ya tail
pyar mohabbat dil ka khel
is khel me koi hai pas
is khel mein koi hai paas
koi hai paas
toh koi hai fail

head ya tail
head ya tail
pyaar mohabbat dil ka khel

do dilon ke beech mein jo aayega
aayega
muft mein bemaut maaraa jaayega
do dilon ke beech mein jo aayega
aayega
muft mein bemaut maraa jaayega
dekhta hi reh jaayega villain
arre dekhta hi reh jaayega villain
hero heroine ko le jaayega

haan aaj ho ya kal
hoga do dilon ka mel
hoga do dilon ka mel
hey head ya tail
head ya tail
arre pyaar mohabbat dil ka khel

bade bade haar gaye

iss khel mein
thhode paagal khaane gaye
thhode jail mein
thhode jail mein
arre bade bade haar gaye
iss khel mein
thhode paagal khaane gaye
thhode jail mein
dariya mein doob gaya thha mahiwaal
dariya mein doob gaya thha mahiwaal
raanjhe ka ho gaya thha majnu sa haal
romeo ka ho gaya thha heart fail

ho gaya thha heart fail
hey head ya tail
head ya tail
pyaar mohabbat dil ka khel
is khel mein koi hai pass
is khel mein koi hai pass
koi hai pass
toh koi hai fail
head ya tail

head ya tail
pyaar mohabbat dil ka khel
bolo head ya tail
head
