(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#9 – The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

Today’s song is another Bappi Da-Kishore Kumar song which I like very much since the release of its movie. I had not watched this movie and over the years I only remember this song and one other song of this movie which is ‘naina ye barse, milne ko tarse’ which too I like very much. However I had always thought these songs as the compositions of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It was only when I noted down the lyrics of this song for presentation that I came to know that it was a composition of Bappi Lahiri and not Laxmikant Pyarelal.

There are some nice songs given by Bappi Lahiri-Kishore Kumar combination in the eighties till 1987 when Kishore Kumar passed away. I seem to have lost track of many such songs and it is only nowadays that I am getting reaquainted with them on ‘radio programmes’.

Today’s wonderful romantic Kishore Kumar song is one such song. This is from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Mohabbat’.

‘Mohabbat’ (1985) was directed by Bapu. It was produced by Inder Kumar-Ashok Thakariya.
It had Anil Kapoor, Vijayata Pandit, Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Amjad Khan, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Sundar, Shubha Khote, Satish Kaushik, Chitti Babu, Asha, Manmauji, Dev Sharma, Sehgal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.05.1985. Movies with the same title were released in ‘1943’, and ‘1997’ as well.

We have the ‘1943-Mohabbat’ already represented on the blog.

“Mohabbat-1985” has five songs in it which all were written by Indeevar. Music for this film was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Saanson se nahin …mohabbat se chalti hai duniya Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Mehbooba paayi hai maine kaisi… Kishore Kumar
03 Zindagi mein pehla pehla toone … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
04 Apne Laila ka jo pyaar nahin paayegaa Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, chorus
05 Naina ye barse milne ko tarse … Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

Today we are going to listen to a song sung by Kishore Kumar from this movie. This song is lip-synced by Anil Kapoor on screen. Vijayata Pandit is also seen in the picturisation. The song has been shot at some beautiful outdoor locations I think.

With today’s song this movie “Mohabbat-1985” makes its debut on the blog.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

Today (24 october 2022), which is kaartik maas krishn paksh amaawasya in Panchaang is deepaawali, the festival of lights. Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi are worshipped on this day.

Is there some rule that they should be worshipped only on this date ? Is there some rule that they should even be worshipped consciously ?

I have a feeling that majority of us who celebrate deepaawali on this particular day may have reduced it to a ritual imitating our day to day practices. It has sort of turned into like new year resolutions which cannot last for more than a few days after e make them.

If my earlier posts on the earlier occasions of deepaawali festival, I have discussed it in my own way. I have tried to stress the fact that performing the puja of goddess Laxmi in one day of the year will not make her to bless her. She is more likely to bless us if we perform the “puja” of Goddess Saraswati followed by that of Lord Vishwakarma, and that too in the proper way, not in the ritualistic way. “Puja” of Goddess Saraswati basically means educating ourselves, upgrading our skills, doing cutting edge research etc. All that takes years and in case of high tech skills decades and even centuries.

Once we educate ourselves we have to make use of that education to make goods and provide services of acceptable quality that could be sold to consumers. That is basically performing Vishwakarma puja. Based on quality of Saraswati Puja, our quality of Vishwakarma Puja is decided and that decides the degree of blessing from Goddess Laxmi.

To take a simplistic example, if our quality of education and skill is such that we can only manufacture low tech products like say garments, then Godess Laxmi will at the most bless us nominally and we will stay an LDC (least developed nation) or low income group nation. If our skill is of medium level (like say we are able to manufacture and export engineering goods) then we can beome a middle income group country. If our skill sets are such that we can develop cutting edge technology and sell that to rest of the world then we becaome High income group nation. That is when Goddess Laxmi actually starts to bless us abundantly.

Right now, India is a low ncome group nation with a per capita income of just over $ 2000 per annum. We will graduate to a middle income nation when our per capita income crosses $ 4000. It is easier said that done. Our neighbour Sri Lanka continues to hover around this mark and has failed to graduate to the ranks of Middle income group nation because they have failed to upgrade their skills to the level where they could break into the league of middle income group nations.

Likewise there are nations that are perpetually in middle income group ($ 4000 to $ 12000 per capita) but they have failed to break into the league of high income nations (per capita earning of over $ 12000) because that requires a different level of education, skill set and aptitude. This phenomenon is called middle income trap. Countries like Brazil and Argentina have fallen into this middle income trap.

High income group nations are those that have per capita income of above $ 12000. These counries are there because of their stress of high quality education and training, followed by strong manufaturing and services sector.

To cut a long story short, we still have a long long way to go before we can hope to be blessed by Goddess Laxmi adequately. We will hopefully becaome a middle income nation (per capita income of above $ 4000) by end of this decade and will not look back. Becoming a high income nation with a per capita income of above $ 12000 at current prices will take another two decades, depending on the level of education and skills that we are able to achieve for our masses. Hopefully we will reach there three decades from now. But that will not happen if we continue to carry on with our present habits. It is high time we stopped looking at education to be synonymous with acquiring degrees and government jobs. It is high time we shift the gear of our thinking. For long we are moving in second gear, whereas you need to shift to top gear if we have to race on the highway of progress.

I find it strange that the number of Deepaawali related songs in Hindi movies dwindled drastically after the golden era of HFM was over in 1980s.

“Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge”(1986) is one of the exceptions. It was produced by Suresh Bokadia and K C Bokadia and directed by Vijay Reddy for BMB Combines, Madras. The movie, which was a remake of Kannada Hit popular movie “NAA NINNA MAREYALARE”(Translation of Title “I will not forget you”) starring famous Kannada hero Late Dr.Raj Kumar, Julie Lakshmi, Shubha, Leelavathi etc.

The movie “Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge”(1986) had Anil Kapoor, Anita Raj, Padmini Kolhapure,Ashok Kumar, Sushma Seth,Deepak Parashar(in Special appearance),
Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo,Baby Guddoo, Satyen Kapoo,Naval Kishore,Bharat Bhatt etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Mohammad Aziz. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Baby Guddu and Anita Raj.

Lyrics and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

The movie “Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge”(1986) makes its debut with the song.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe Deepaawali. May Goddess Laxmi bless us all in a more fruitful manner than the blessing that most of us are used to from her.

Hullo to all friends

I know it is rather late in the day to wish a ‘Happy Friendship Day’; but as the saying goes ‘Better Late Than Never’.

This morning my husband had a confused look on his face when he started receiving Friendship Day messages. He asked me “when is this day?”. The reason behind the question was – he had received friendship day messages last weekend too, on July 30th to be exact.

My reply (after a lot of googling, need not be the accurate answer)- “July 30th was the International Friendship Day as recognized by the United Nations General Assemby in 2011.”
The next question followed “Then why I am getting messages today?”

My reply – “In India Friendship Day is celebrated on first Sunday of August for some decades now. Personally I don’t know when all this began”.

On thinking deeper, do we really need any of these special days? Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day, Sibling Day, Grandparents Day, Son’s Day, Daughter’s Day, Friendship Day etc. Aren’t these relations part of our emotional framework? I can only see one purpose to these days- acknowledging the existence of these relations in our life when we are fortunate of them being there. Because we miss our friends, parents, and all loved ones when they are not there and away from us for some reason or they have been permanently removed from our life. It is good to appreciate them when they are there and not take them for granted.

Different matter that cynics would say the purpose of these DAYS is to increase the workload of postmen & courier services, greeting card makers and shops selling relevant gifts, flowers and chocolates. (good for economy Emoji) But let us not be cynics.

The first set of best friends or Best Friends Forever (BFF)- as the new generation would put it- were Krishna- Sudama, Karna- Duryodhana (my thinking, I may be wrong too).

All of us have our set of friends who have stood by us through thick and thin, in our good times and bad times. The ‘Friend in need is a friend Indeed” type. We have friends with whom we just need to see or dial and start talking as if there was no gap in between, as if we have been meeting or speaking every single day of the year. Today is the day to acknowledge the importance of all the friends in our life.

Do we have special songs for this occasion in Hindi Films? Yes of course. Any song with the words ‘yaar’, ‘yaari’, ‘dost’, ‘dosti’, will fit the bill for friendship day song and the blog has all the iconic and all-time hit songs that are marked in the ‘Dosti song’ and ‘Friendship song’ category.

August 7th happens to be the birthday of Suresh Wadkar. So we are having a song for Friendship Day in the voice of Suresh Wadkar. It is written by Khurshid Hallauri and composed by RD Burman. It is from the 1989 Vinod Chopra directed ‘Parinda’ a movie whose songs I simply love. The blog has three (there is two-version song) songs from this movie.

Prakashchandra ji had put a query in the comments section of the first song of this film “And Who is Khurshid Hallauri ??, the lyricist, Any one who has information about him, Please share with us.”
This is Avinashji’s reply to that query

“Here is a brief information about Khurshid Hallauri compiled from sources:
Khurshid Hallauri was born in 10 Feb 1938 in Mumbai (?). He is an Indian lyricist writing primarily for Hindi songs in Bollywood films / Albums.
Hallaur or Hallor village is located in Domariyaganj Tehsil of Siddharthnagar district in Uttar Pradesh, India. Domariyaganj is the nearest town to Hallaur village.

There are many of his videos on ‘Youtube’. But I think in movies he has only penned songs for ‘Parinda-1989’.”

Any further information on Khurshid Hallauri is welcome.

The song is filmed on Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor who are childhood friends and are on the way to meet each other after a gap of some years. When the two were away -Anupam Kher for police training and Anil Kapoor for studies. The second singer for this all male duet is Shailendra Singh.
Thanking all my friends for being in my life and wishing Suresh Wadkar on his birthday.

Blog Day :

5070 Post No. : 16991

In one of my earlier articles here, I had mentioned that the month of June is one of my most favorite months. There are several important days in this month and different anniversaries of our close ones too (including me 🙂 ).

Today 5th June is one such important day. It is the ‘World Environment Day’ today.

Here again I will repeat what I have mentioned in my post for the short song “Ye Hanste Huye Phool, Ye Mehka Hua Gulshan”  from film ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) written for ‘Environment Day – 2017’ and posted on the blog on 08.06.2017 (instead of 05.06.2017).

I am approaching today’s post in a different manner. Instead of going into the details of the environmental agencies, their history and purpose, the significant environmental issues being faced by humanity on this planet, etc. I am thinking of our Hindi films and their music. The nature is so intimately connected herein. We cannot imagine our Hindi Film Music without ‘connecting with nature.

 Well, for today I would like to make a little correction in the above lines. That year 2017 the theme of the ‘WED (World Environment Day) was ‘Connecting with Nature’ and I had tried to connect the same with the songs, lyrics and music of our Hindi movies.

This year ‘2022’ the theme of the ‘WED’ is “Only One Earth – Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature”. So I would like to add here that I am thinking of those Hindi Films which carried a ‘message’ related to environment and our planet ‘the earth’. And since this is the blog of songs we need a song to connect this celebration today.

The movie of today ‘Aasmaan Se Gira’ (1991) has a message for all of us in its climax. Today’s song, though doesn’t exactly match the theme of today, it connects to the ‘philosophy of life’ and alerts us that ultimately our destination is ‘one’ and we have leave everything here. So let us leave everything in a good shape, better prospects, and in compassion to the humanity and nature.  Leave the ‘shad-ripus’ (kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, mad, matsar) to attain ‘moksh’. I have listened and watch this song several times and it is an enlightening song woven in comical situation in the movie. The movie also needs to be watched even though it’s a movie for children.

In today’s post I am not going into the details of this movie which I had mentioned in my earlier article with other song of this movie earlier on the blog – “Ghar Jaana Hai Mujhe, Ghar Jaana Hai“. A brief about this movie is given below.

A young prince is being trained for a time when he will grow up to become king. The lonely boy is frustrated at being kept secluded while being taught the art of statesmanship by great scholars. One day while frustrated he is crying for help ‘a strange little man’ arrives in his room.

This ‘little man’ is from another planet. His name is Trishanku. Trishanku was travelling to attend the wedding of his friend, but since the ‘rays of sorrow’ from the little prince caught him on the way he lands there to help the little prince.

The prince and Trishanku exchange views about their own worlds. Trishankhu is homesick and wishes to return back to his planet. He has his three friends from his planet who had earlier lost their way after coming to earth and then stayed back on the planet earth thereafter. Each one of the three knows the ‘part of the mantra’ that will allow Trishanku to go back to his home planet.

The two-escape trying to find ways for Trishankhu to go back. On their journey they develop a deep bonding and it is hard for Trishankhu to let go.

When Trishanku meets each of his three friends, each one gives him one part of the mantra which is presented in the form of a song and that is our song for today. It is picturised in three parts on Anil Kapoor, Sheeba, Sridevi, and Anupam Kher. The forth part of the song is picturised on Trishanku i.e. Raghuveer Yadav who is singing it at the ‘Jantar Mantar’ from where he is supposed to find his way to his planet after singing the ‘mantras’. In all the four parts of the song the little prince i.e. Master Abhishek is present in the picturisation of this song.

Finally Trishanku lands on his planet and he enters the ‘darbaar’ of his master (God of Outer Planet) i.e. ‘Baadshaah-e-Kahkashaan’ played by Amjad Khan. And, there we have the following conversation between ‘Baadshaah-e-Kahkashaan’ and Trishanku, where the master has a message for all on this ‘Planet – The Earth’.

Trishanku – takai t takai t takai t … main aa gaya ‘baadshaah-e-kahkashaan’,
                      andar aane ki ijaazat hai?

Baadshaah – aao … der lagaa di tumne, chuk gaye shaadi, yaad karte rahe sab

Trishanku – main kya karta, ve tinon itni door door thhe ek yahaan, doosra
                      wahaan , teesra jaane kahaan, badi mushqil huyi

Baadshaah – kya dekha tinon ne, pataa nahin … nahin laute… manaa kiya maine,
                       nahin maane
                       moorkh
                       bewaqoof
                       prithvi ke log
                      nahin samajhte
                      itni achchhi prithvi achaanak nahin bani… mehnat lagi.. koshish..
                      tum to thhe… yaad hain?

Trishanku –  haan yaad hain

Baadshaah – barbaad kar diya prithvi ko… tahas nahas… jung golaa barood
                         hathiyaar ladaayi … ped tod todkar nangaa kar diya prithvi ko
                         paani mein zehar … hawaa mein zehar …
                         mutthibhar log, hukumat karte karodon par
                         anaaj hain, bhookhe rehte hain laakhon… anaaj bechkar hathiyaar
                         kharidte hain
                         moorkh!  moorkh!!  moorkh!!!

Trishanku        theek kehte hain …lekin sabhi wahaan aise nahin hai …ek bachchaa hai
                            kautuk …main uski madad karna chaahtaa hoon

Baadshaah        nahin, nahin, nahin, hamaara kaanoon hai, rishta mat banana
                             prithvi ke logon ke saath… madad mat karna un murkhon ki
                             koshish ki thhi pehle kabhi, gayi bekaar… bhool jaao…bhool jaao o

 Trishanku –      theek hai prithviwaale dusht hain, lobhi hain, moorkh hain …ek doosre ka khoon choosnewaale hain, ek jhande ke pichhe aapas mein lad mar jaate hain, anaaj bechkar hathiyaar kharidte hain,  lekin sabhi aise nahin hain..kautuk jaise log bhi hai wahaan, usne yahaan aane mein meri madad ki … main bhi uski madad karna chaahta haoon…

(After this Trishanku tells Baadshaah how good and friendly Kautuk is and what consequences he may be facing after being alone now.)

Kautuk wants to play , wants to fly kite, wants to eat mango.. but Maasheela is such a cruel queen who has prohibited everything for Kautuk and he cannot even go out of his palace… saying this Trishanku breaks into tears and Baadshaah surprisingly asks him what is flowing from his eyes and why. Trishanku explains him that this is the ‘gift’ he got from the ‘people of prithvi’.

Baadshaah orders to bring Maasheela to his darbaar. And when Maasheela (Kalpana Aiyer) threatens Baadshaah of his life, the Baadshaah wants to kill her but Kautuk intervene and request Baadshaah to forgive her and he begs him for her life. 

Trishanku – dekha kitne zulm kiye hain is aurat ne is par, phir bhi ye uske praanon ki bheekh maang rahaa hai…ise kehte hain kshamaa, prem, kautuk jaise aur bhi log hain prithvi par, jab tak aise log hain hamen prithvi se naa-umeed nahin hona chahiye

(Maasheela hugs kautuk and is emotional. She asks kautuk to forgive her misdeeds. She showers her love on kautuk.)

This incident brings tears to the Baadshaah and he forgives all and with the following message…

jaao kautuk jaao… jab tak tum jaise log prithvi par rahenge …prithvi rahegi
jaao aur apne duniya ke logon ko samjhaa do…
aapsi prem khatm ho jaayega kuchh nahin bachega sab kuchh khatm ho jaayegaa

Kautuk returns to prithvi after taking a promise from Trishanku to visit him on his birthday every year.

This heart-warming film by popular TV and film director Pankaj Parashar stars a galaxy of Bollywood stars in guest appearances including Sridevi, Amjad Khan, Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher.

Before we enjoy today’s entertaining song I just wish that may there be many such movies and may such songs which I can present for occasions like today. We need to have more movies to bring the awareness on issues of environment and pollution.

Yesterday, it was there in the news that people are throwing dead animals into canals… Many must have seen the dumping sites where every day garbage heap is dumped and which are slowly turning into big mountains …

And last but not the least … keep watching children’s movies in between … not necessary that all children’s movies are for children only. People can learn a lot from them.

Also I would like to request the film-makers that ‘meaningful movies’ on the issues around us can be made for adult audiences too and they should not limit this for the children only.

It is good to see that in recent years there have been movies coming on ‘environmental issues’ too. We will keep presenting songs from such movies in the future on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

10th October is the birth date of the ageless Bollywood Diva Bhanurekha Ganesan.

I don’t remember which was my first post on the blog on her birthday, but over the last few years I have been trying to write out a song and present her with an actor who was not one of her regular heroes; meaning someone except Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Jeeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Mehra etc. Today’s song is also one such song.

This song is from the 2000 release “Bulandi” which was directed by T. Rama Rao. It had a cast of Rajnikanth (special appearance), Anil Kapoor, Harish (from South Indian films), and Rekha, Raveena Tandon, Aruna Irani along with Shakti Kapoor, Ranjeet, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Paresh Rawal, Sadashiv Amrapurkar in supporting cast. Songs of the movie were penned by Anand Bakshi and tuned by Viju Shah. The playback singers used were Udit Narayan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Anuradha Paudwal, Jaspinder Narula, Sukhwinder Singh, Abhijeet and Alka Yagnik -in short all the popular singers of the 90s.

The movie was the tale of a family of Zamindars which is headed by Rajnikanth who has a sister -Aruna Irani and three sons Anil Kapoor (double role plays two brothers) and Harish Kumar. Rekha plays the zamindar’s elder daughter-in-law who is the bhabhi-maa to her devars. And here I would like to mention that the two Anil Kapoors are not twins. Today’s song happens at the girl’s family meeting the boy’s family ritual and the older Anil Kapoor is the groom-to be. Aruna Irani the would-be atyaa (paternal aunt) starts the song as cue to the coy Bride-to-be who then begins singing and also fantasizing about her hubsand married life etc
There have been many instances when big a star/ actor accepts a role in a film because the main actor/ character is being enacted by a senior star/actor of whom the junior is a fan. Like for example, Amitabh Bachchan played Dilip Kumar’s son in Ramesh Sippy’s “Shakti”. Similarly Rekha played miniscule role in one of Dev Anand’s final movie, “Censor” and also one of Manoj Kumar’s last directorial.

Anil Kapoor did a second rung character in this film as he was sharing screen space with a senior (workwise)-Rekha. And the dance that accompanies sees Rekha and Anil Kapoor matching each other decently well. It is only recently I found out that there is just two year age gap between these two actors but one began working in 1966 (age 12) when the other might have been in school and not even given a thought to what career to pursue. That must be one of the reason why the viewer may feel that Anil Kapoor was acting with a much senior actress, she was a senior only because she was already in the entertainment business for 14 years before Anil made his debut.

The singers for this song are Kavitha Krishnamurthy and Udit Narayan.

Happy birthday to Rekha. May we keep seeing her on the silver screen.

Blog Day :

4772 Post No. : 16521

While we in this blog discuss songs, we also discuss other topics of common interest, like sports (mainly cricket), festivals, history, economy etc.

Tokyo Olympics concluded a few days back. As Indians, we had lots of sporting events to look forward to. Indians were participating in many events. Indians had pinned hopes of medals on quite a few of them, seeing that some of them were actually ranked world number 1, 2, 3 etc in their sports and they were given similar seedings too in the Olympics. But most of these sportspersons disappointed.

On the other hand, there were a few who performed beyond their rankings and managed to win medals. India won a medal (silver) on the very first day of the Olympics. First three medals were won by female athletes. Later, males too joined in winning medals.

Icing on the cake arrived on 7 August 2021, the last day of Olympics. The final medal that India won in these games happened to a track and field medal. It was the very first time that India won a track and field medal. And it turned out to be a GOLD medal, no less !

This gold medal event was in men’s javelin throw. Indians had never taken so much intetest in an atheletics event before this Olympics. I was one of those who followed the event closely. Since India actually won the gold, I dug deep and got all the relevant details of this competition. In this article, I present my findings, which is basically a description of How the Javelin Gold was won in Tokyo Olympics.

There were 32 javelin throwers in the competition. They were divided into two groups, viz Group A and group B, each consisting of 16 athletes.

In the qualification round, each javelin thrower was given three attempts in which to achieve the qualifying marks of 83. 5 meters. Based on the performances, 12 javelin throwers were to qualify for the finals.

In case less than 12 javelin throwers achieved the qualification mark, then the remaining slots were to be filled from those who had hurled the javelin the farthest among the non qualifiers.

Only six javelin throwers (three from group A and three from group B) were able to achieve direct qualification by throwing the javelin beyond 83.5 meters. Here are the details of these six direct qualifiers.

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
Neeraj Chopra (India) 1 (86.65 m) 86.65 m 1 1
J Vetter (Germany) 3 (82.04 m,82.08m, 85.64 m) 85.64 m 2 2
Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 2 (78.50 m, 85.16 m) 85.16 m 1 3
Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 3 (79.27, 78.96 m, 84.93 m) 84.93 m 2 4
L Etelatalo (Finland) 1 (84.50 m ) 84.50 m (SB) 3 5
Julian Weber (Germany) 1 ( 84.41 m) 84.41 m 3 6

Only six javelin throwers could gain direct qualifications. There were six more slots of finalists to be filled. Those six non qualifiers who threw the javelin the farthest were picked to fill the remaining slots. Following six javelin throwers thus gained indirect qualification for the final:-

Gr A Gr B Overall qualification round rank
Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank Name (Country) Attempts Result Group rank
A M Novac (Romania) 3 (83.27 m, 80.90 m, x) 83.27 m (SB) 4 7
V Vesely (Czech) 3 (x, 83.04 m, x) 83.04 m (SB) 5 8
Alaksei Katkavets (BLR) 3 (81.08 m, 81.73 m, 82.72 m) 82.72 m 4 9
Andrian Mardare (Moldova) 3 (80.69, 78.95 m, 82.70 m) 82.70 m 5 10
Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 3 (x, 82.17m, 82.64 m ) 82.64 m 6 11
Kim Amb (Sweden) 3 (82.40 m, 79.87, x ) 82.40 m (SB) 7 12

Thus four javelin throwers from group A and two from group B gained indirect qualification for the final. Remaining 20 javelin throwers (9 from group A and 11 from group B ) were eliminated.

The qualifying mark of 83.50 m does not appear too daunting for the competitors on paper, seeing that the personal best throws of most competitors, including those who failed to qualify was well over 83.5 meters. Some of the non qualifiers in fact had hurled the spear well over 90 m in the past. Some of them were past Olympic medal winners and world champions as well. Those who failed to qualify for the final included Walcott Keshorn (Trinidad and Tobago)-2012 Olympics gold medalist (90.16 m personal best), Julius Yego (Kenya)- 2016 Olympics silver medalist (personal best of 92.72 m), Cheng Chao Tsun (Taipeh)- Asian record holder with 91.36 m throw, Peter Anderson (Grenada)-current world champion (personal best 87.31 m) etc.

But World class sports is played on the field and it depends on performance on the day. Past records and achievements count for little. It is the three throws in the qualifying competition that determine who goes ahead to the finals and who get eliminated. Only six javelin throwers gained direct qualification. The six javelin throwers sneaked in as indirect qualifiers. The last qualifier who qualified could only hurl the spear to a distance of 82.4 meters, more than one meter behind the qualification mark.

Indians were cautiously optimistic about the chances of Neeraj Chopra because his performance during the current season vis a vis the performance of other leading contenders suggested that he was a medal contender.

Many leading contenders were eliminated after the qualifying round. The biggest gold contender was J Vetter of Germany, who had a season’s best of 97. 76 meters achieved in July 2021. But he too was on the verge of elimination in the qualifying stage, before he survived by crossing the qualifying mark on his third and final throw. Neeraj Chopra of India gave Indians a pleasant surprise by easily qualifying on his very first throw, and that throw was the longest throw of the qualifying stage. Thus he qualified as number 1 qualifier among the 12 qualifiers for the final. Vetter qualified as number 2. Pakistan’s Arshad Nadeem qualified at the third place, and Pakistanis suddenly found something to look forward to in the Tokyo Olympics.

The timings of sports telecast of Tokyo Olympics suited India perfectly. The telecast would beging early morning iST and would continue till late evening. Javelin throw finals were scheduled on Saturday 7 August 2021. Unlike the qualifiers, the finals were at night time. It was in the afternoon in India.

The rules for the finals were that all 12 throwers would be given three throws each. The first eight contenders after these three throws would get another three throws each. The throwers would then be ranked based on their best throws.

When the competition began, I took pen and paper and began to note down the throws of the participants. During the first three throws, the sequence of throwers was arbitrary (or so it seemed to me). The number 10 qualifier (Adrian Mardore) threw first followed by Neeraj Chopra (number 1 qualifier), then number 12 qualifier (Kim Amb) followed by number 7 (A M Novak) etc. The first three throws of the twelve throwers in the sequence in which they threw was noted down by me in a table like this :-

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Best throw (m) Standing after three throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 82.84 Eighth
2 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 87.58 First
3 Kim Amb (Sweden) 77.22 78.31 79.69 79.69 Eleventh
4 A M Novac (Romania) 77.03 79.29 x 79.29 Twelfth
5 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 85.44 Second
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 85.30 Third
7 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 83.28 Seventh
8 J Vetter (Germany) 82.52 x x 82.52 Ninth
9 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 84.62 Fourth
10 Pavel Mialeshka (BLR) 82.28 79.35 78.13 82.28 Tenth
11 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 83.98 Fifth
12 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 83.71 Sixth

After the first three throws, bottom four throwers were eliminated. J Vetter, the world record holder and the overwhelming favourite for the gold, had just one legal throw in his first attempt. That throw of 82.52 m kept him in the fourth position till the second round. But he fouled his third round and as many as five throwers threw longer than his 82.52 m in their third attempts. These five throwers advanced, and Vetter was relegated to the ninth position after third round. Thus he was among those four who were eliminated after round three. It was a big upset. The other three people who were eliminated threw lesser distances than what they had thrown during the qualifying stage, and their elimination was no surprise.

The remaining eight contenders then hurled three more throws in the ascending orders of their standing after three throws, viz the person eighth in the standing threw first and the person standing first threw last.

Here are the throws of the eight javelin throwers in the order in which they took their fourth, fifth and sixth attempts.

S No Thrower (Country) First throw (m) Second throw (m) Third throw (m) Fourth throw Fifth throw Sixth throw Best throw (m) Standing after six throws
1 Adrian Mardare (Moldova) 81.16 81.73 82.84 81.90 83.30 81.09 83.30 Seventh
2 Lassi Etelataro (Finland) 78.43 76.59 83.28 79.20 79.99 83.05 83.28 Eighth
3 Aliaskei Katkavets (BLR) 82.49 81.03 83.71 79.24 x x 83.71 Sixth
4 Jakub Vadlejch (Czech) 83.98 x x 82.86 86.67 (SB) x 86.67 Second (SILVER)
5 Arshad Nadeem (Pakistan) 82.40 x 84.62 82.91 81.98 x 84.62 Fifth
6 Julian Weber (Germany) 85.30 77.90 78.00 83.10 85.15 75.72 85.30 Fourth
7 Vitazlav Vesely (Czech) 79.73 80.30 85.44 (SB) x 84.98 x 85.44 Third (BRONZE)
8 Neeraj Chopra (India) 87.03 87.58 76.79 x x 84.24 87.58 First (GOLD)

One can see that six out of eight throwers who were eligible for three additional throws failed to improve upon their best attempts achieved during the first three attempts. There were just two throwers who achieved their best during the fourth, fifth and sixth attempts. They climbed up the rankings and affected the rankings of those whom they overtook.

Adrian Mardore of Moldova, who was eighth after three throws achieved his best throw of 83.30 m in his fifth attempt. With this throw, which was 2 cm better than the best throw of seventh placed Lassi Etelataro of Norway, climbed up to seventh position, relegating Lassi Etelataro to the eighth position in the final standing.

The other thrower who gave his best during the final three throws changed the higher standings in a major way. Jakub Vadlejch of Czech republic had managed just one legal throw during his first three attempts, but that throw was far enough to keep him in top 8. In his fifth attempt, he hurled the javelin to a distance of 86.67 m. It was season’s best performance for him, just like his throw during the qualification stage was his season’s best. With this throw, he climbed upto the second position. Athletes, who were occupying second, third and fourth position were pushed one place down as a result. So, his compatriot Vitaly Vesely, who too had thrown his season’s best throw in the final, had to be content with the bronze. Julian Weber of Germany, who too had achieved season’s best throw in the final, was fourth. Arshad Nadeem of Pakistan, ended up fifth.

One can see that Neeraj Chopra of India led from the front and he was never threatened for the gold. It all sounds so easy with the benefit of hindsight, but it was obviously not as easy at it looks like. In a country known for missing opportunities, allowing opportunities to slip away, choking at the last moment etc, it was such a refreshing change to see an Indian performing like a seasoned pro, grabbing the contest by the scruff of its neck and not allowing others a sniff of a chance. He qualified for the final in just one throw, ending up at number one among all qualifiers. In the final, his first two throws were longer than the throws of all other competitors and so he had sealed his gold in his first two throws itself. It looks so easy if you have a talented sportsman representing you. In reality, it was the very first time that an Indian was winning a Track and Field medal in an Olympics.

Indians would have settled for medal of any hue, even bronze, as their first track and field atheletics medal. The fact that it was a gold has immense significance. European nations keep winning track and field golds, and that changes nothing, but a solitary track and field Gold won by an India will change the fate of atheletics in India, and elsewhere. Let us not forget, even today India is world’s fifth biggest economy. If Indians take to atheletics with the same vengeance with which they take to cricket, then atheletics worldwide will get more popular than what it already is because one sixth of world population lives in India. We have already seen what happened to cricket in India (and worldwide) when India won ODI world cup in 1983, and later T20 World cup in 2007. I can foresee a situation when an atheletics revolution will take place in India in near future.

Those who think that this medal is one off and the normal service will resume after that, I disagree. THis event has changed Indian sports for ever. I can cite an Indian example to prove my point. India was a very weak chess playing nation till 1970s, that too when Chess was a game that originated in India. It was belived that Indians can never become chess grandmasters. It was in 1988 that India had her first chess grandmaster (Vishwanathan Anand). This event popularised chess in India as never before. Vishwanathan Anand went on to become five times world champion, and India today had 69 grand masters in chess. Chess too has an Olympics, called Chess Olympiad, played every two years. How many of us know that India at present is joint world champion in Chess Olympiad (with Russia)! All this had happened in a matter of three decades. I see a similar thing happening in Athletics. Indian economy and market can easily support and sponsor this forthcoming athletics revolution in India.

If one looks at the medal tally of various nations in Olympics, one will find that the medal tally in a way is a refection on the economic development of a nation. The top ten nations in the medal tally are major economies. Most are high income nations and others are just one rung below, viz Middle income group nations. Sporting prowess in a way has some definite correlation with HDI (Human development Index) of a country. There are some notable exceptions (viz some African nations), but otherwise economical development leads to overall betterment in sporting achievements. Hopefully, India too will join the ranks of top medal winners two to three decades from now, like how India has already become a top chess playing nation, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Russia, USA and other chess superpowers.

What is the medal tally that India achieved in Tokyo Olympics ? One gold, two silvers, four bronze. One two ka four, four two ka one. Hindi movie “Ram Lakhan” had already created a song for this occasion, as far back as in 1989, when Vishwanathan Anand was India’s sole chess grandmaster !

Here is this popular song of its time. It is sung by Md Aziz, Anuradha Paudwal, Nitin Mukesh and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. It is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff and others as a dance song.

The other day, Madhuri Dixit’s birthday was celebrated on the blog and it inevitably reminded me of many of her songs. This is one song from the film ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), which is never out of mind, though has been out of sight for many years now. This was in 1989, and my mother and elder sister were already fans of Anil Kapoor. I was not a fan and would call him some uncharitable names, not unprintable but will not mention here. The era of seeing every Amitabh Bachchan film was over, and Subhash Ghai, the producer director of this film was a big name. He was so big that he got to name a few of his heroines, rechristen them literally. Meenakshi, Madhuri and Manisha, Mahima etc. He was fixated or superstitious about naming the heroines beginning with the letter ‘M’. I have seen very few Anil Kapoor songs appearing in the blog. Some newer songs are here, but the many films he did in his earlier period, especially of his jodi with Jackie Shroff, are not here at all. Same is the case with Madhuri Dixit.

Film magazines like Stardust and Filmfare, were still the popular medium of reading and gaining knowledge, useful as well as not so useful. I can say for sure that it has been decades, since I have seen a film magazine in any language. Even doctor’s dispensaries don’t have them. I personally don’t know anyone who buys/reads any such magazines, or if they grace the center-table in any living rooms nowadays. Quite a fall for these publications really. Absence of television has helped, so that I am not even aware of the winners of Filmfare awards these days.

The song in question is a well composed, written and sung, sort of a filmy situation ‘bhakti’ song. Madhuri Dixit is the highlight, as only she could be. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have given a dekho, a ‘retro’ of ‘Pakeeza’ soundtrack and their own ‘Sargam’ soundtrack in the interlude music. The team of Anand Bakshi & L-P were a pro at creating such situational songs. And Lata Mangeshkar was still the backbone of any L-P score, be it the films of the South or Bombay.

What is happening here is the engagement party of Madhuri Dixit, sort of, with Amrish Puri’s son. Jackie Shroff is a police officer, playing the title role of Ram and Anil Kapoor is the younger brother Lakhan. Madhuri is forced to accept this alliance by her father Anupam Kher, with no help from Anil Kapoor, who is away on training as Police Inspector. So, when Madhuri is asked to perform in front of the guests, she starts the bhajan, remonstrating with the Almighty, and complaining to Ram present in the party, directly. Another highlight of the song is the way Jackie Shroff is seen to be preening (in his fine feathers) almost, as the addressee and the brother of Lakhan.

Anyway, when it is Lata Mangeshkar, who is crooning “Ho Ram ji ee eee”, and Madhuri Dixit is on screen, performing, who can stay unmoved.

Remembrance Day   —    Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (of Laxmikant-Pyarelal)

Today is the 23rd remembrance day of Laxmikant S. Kudalkar one half of the music composer duo fondly known as L-P.  They were the sole torch bearers by 1988, of the melodious music of the golden era of HFM.   Though RD Burman was still around, but doing very few films.  L-P it seems never took a breather, till the demise of  Laxmikant on 25.05.1998.  I personally don’t know of any instance where Pyarelal composed a film score alone.

Laxmikant–Pyarelal received won 7 awards and 15 nominations for best music direction in the Filmfare awards.

Filmfare Award for Best Music Director– Won

1965 Dosti
1968 Milan
1970 Jeene Ki Raah
1978 Amar Akbar Anthony
1979 Satyam Shivam Sundaram
1980 Sargam
1981 Karz

They have composed close to 3000 songs out of which 896 are posted.  So the tally is so close to 900 mark.   Today is actually Remembrance Day of Sunil Dutt also.  I could have easily found a song by L-P featuring Sunil Dutt to post, but I was reminded of this wonderful group song from ‘Tezaab’ in a video forward in the family group.

Belgaum city has been put under strict lock down for the extended weekend from Friday to Monday.  The video is maybe shot last year showing empty streets, markets and by-lanes of the city.  It was moving very fast, so I failed to recognise much of the blurred views. This song from ‘Tezaab’ 1988 was playing in the background, so I decided to do this song post.  I have always liked the song for the humming in the background, and night journey in the battered vehicle with a broken wind shield.  Chunky Pandey and his friends are singing this song.  While sad looking Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor are trying to enjoy their antics.  Second stanza is filmed on these two with background singing by Alka Yagnik and Shabbir Kumar.  Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Chunky Pandey.

Peevesie’s Mom would have liked to post this as Chunky Pandey’s song, I suspect.  But I have it as a night song from ‘Tezaab’ by Nitin Mukesh.  That’s how I remembered it and had thought of including it in the ‘Chaandni Raatien’ series.  But since there is no moon visible here, nor it is mentioned in the song, so desisted.

The other day after reading Madhuri’s birthday post on 15th May, I remembered many songs.  Even started one post for a Madhuri song, but could not complete it.  That one is also a hit L-P score.  But for now, that song will have to wait.

For a five-minute song, this is having only 2 stanza’s.  So, I looked for audio version, thinking that it may have an extra stanza.  But there is no extra stanza in the audio version, which is slightly longer with repetition of mukhda.

So, let’s enjoy this hummable, slow, melodious, pensive, meaningful song, written by Javed Akhtar.

And remember Laxmikant Kudalkar, the musician.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, so introducing another popular song that got very quickly reused in a subsequent film. This raunchy item number surprised everyone when it came out for the first time. The film is ‘Inkaar’ from 1977. It was cops and robbers story – B-grade cinema but it was done very professionally, giving some true insight into the normal working of the police force.

This song, which is performed by Helen in the film, became very popular in its time. And the wonder part of this song was / is the voice that has rendered it. The voice is of Usha Mangeshkar. One does not hear her voice in item numbers. Maybe part of a twin dance duet singing. But not an out and out item song. Somehow the selection of his voice for the setting clicked absolutely well. The setting of the song in the original film is a roadside tavern – a desi daaru ka adda. A counter for selling liquor and some chairs and tables for the clients to enjoy their glass that cheers. The dancer, Helen, is very much in the native Maharashtrian attire, wearing the dhoti in the typical lavangi style. The scenario, the persona – the singing voice suited everything to a T.

Fast forward to 1984. The film is ‘Andar Baahar’. This is another cops and robbers tale. Jackie Shroff is a police inspector who has lost his senior partner (role played by Parikshit Sahni) to the bullets of criminals. He vows revenge, and for that he takes permission to pull out a jailed criminal (role played by Anil Kapoor), and enrolls him as his partner, because he can identify the gangster boss. Anil Kapoor, who is a hardened criminal otherwise, has a difficult time adjusting to a role on the other side of the law. So within the very first one or two days, taking advantage of his newly given freedom, he disappears from Jackie Shroff’s home. Jackie is worried, on many counts, and sets out to search for him. Following his instincts he goes to the city red light area and his hunch is proved correct. Anil Kapoor is in a binge of drink and dance with a dancing girl of the area, role played by Jaishree T. And the song that is used in this scene is the iconic Usha Mangeshkar number, repeated from the film ‘Inkaar’.

The reuse is a direct replay without re-recording. The song duration is shorter because only one stanza of the song is utilized. Once again, being a repeat song, this does not appear in the Geet Kosh listings for the latter film. I have retained the credits for the song, from the original film – Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan. Incidentally the music director for the latter film is RD Burman.

So another popular song reused in a later film. I accidentally ran into this song, as I was searching for another video clip to complete another post. The song “Hum Ko To Yaari Se Matlab Hai” from film ‘Andar Baahar’ has a sad version that was not getting located. I played thru the film in fast forward mode. It was a short clip but I was able to locate it. In the process, the bonus was the discovery of this repeat song that would have otherwise not been located, as it is not listed. A good chance discovery.

Song –  Tu..u..u Mungdaa, Mungdaa Main Gud Ki Dhali  (Andar Baahar) (1984) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

tu..u..u
mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
tu..u..u
mungdaa ha mungdaa
main gud ki dali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali
mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali

aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
aashiq apna
mungdaa mungdaa mungdaa
main gud ki dali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali

Hullo Atuldom

7th August- remembrance day of Gulshan Kumar Mehta. It seems like just recently that my husband read the news of his demise from the morning papers and asked me who it was? I just rattled out a list of songs that were written by him and he was surprised that almost all the songs that I mentioned he knew he had heard but without knowing who had written it or other details about the song. Today is this Gulshan Kumar Mehta’s 11th anniversary. He is known popularly as Gulshan Bawra.

The name “Baawra” was goven to him by distributor Shantilal Dave who could not believe that the then 19 year old “Baawra” could write such meaningful lyrics. And this moniker “Baawra” stuck.

As I sat to write this post I found a link on youtube that gave me 45 minutes of Gulshan Bawra songs under the title “Best of Gulshan Bawra” and contained the following songs: tumhe-yaad-hogaa; Aapse humko bicchde huye ek zamaana beet gaya; Hamne jo dekhe sapne; Waada karle saajna tere bina main na rahoon; Le chal le chal mere jeewan saathhi; Jeewan ke har mod pe mil jaayenge hamsafar; Tumko mere dil ne pukaara hai; Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi.

Of the 10 songs in that list I didn’t know only two:- “dil sambhaale sambhalta nahin” and “beete hue din kuch aise hi hain”. But of course all the 10 are present on our blog. And 141 out of the 380 odd songs that he has written, are present in the blog. His first outing in movies was in the 1959 movie “Satta Bazaar” (1959) with the classic ‘tumhe yaad hoga kabhi hum mile the’. His career spanned almost four decades and we have a range of songs to entertain ys from the patriotic Aaj hai do october ka din and ‘mere desh ki dharti’; melodiously romantic ‘chaand ko kya maloom’ and funnily romantic ‘peenewaalon ko peene ka bahana chahiye’. His ‘dukki pe dukki ho’ is as popular as ‘dilbar mere kab tak mujhe’. And I remember having seen him on screen lip syncing ‘deewane hai deewano ko na darr chahiye’ and also enjoying the party in ‘Parivaar’ when Nanda sang ‘aaj hai do october ka din’. He was there on screen in Manoj Kumar directed ‘Upkaar’ as the halwai’s son. His songs have been put to music by Kalyanji Anandji, R D Burman, Shankar Jaikishan. He was awarded the best lyricist Filmfare award for “mere desh ki dharti” and “yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi” which also topped that years Binaca Geetmala.

Thinking of this lyricist on his anniversary with a song from the 1984 release “Andar Baahar”. 1984 was when I had discovered the new crop of good looking actors Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol etc. They looked good and danced/ acted reasonably well too. So I could request my dad to see this movie. He was also a fan of movies which were of the ‘masala’ genre and had some good songs for added pleasure and relaxation. I could never convince him to see any of the Arty movies, but that is another story.

“Andar Baahar” was a movie produced by Romu Sippy and directed by Raj N. Sippy. It had a cast of Jackie Shroff- Anil Kapoor- Parikshit Sahni- Anita Raaj- Danny. This was Moon Moon Sen’s Hindi debut (one of the reasons my dad agreed to come for the movie, he wanted to see Suchitra Sen’s daughter).

The movie had a very simple storyline:- A cop-n-crook story. The crooks led by Danny crack the safe of a bank, and one of them turns greedy and tries to shoot the others out of his way. The sound gets cop Ajay Sahni (Parikshat Sahni) to the spot and one of the team of crooks runs away with the loot. Danny escapes from prison and threatens the absconding Gulshan Grover of killing his sister if he doesn’t return the loot. Gulshan squeals to the cops and inspector Ajay and his friend Ravi Khanna (Jackie) reach the spot. Only this time, in the operations, inspector Ajay is fatally wounded and now inspector Ravi seeks vengeance. With the permission of the commissioner he brings the wounded crook Raja (Anil Kapoor), who is still in his custody, to help him track Shera (Danny) Gulshan etc and bring the movie to a close. In the process Ravi Khanna finds a friend in Raja who takes Ajay’s place in his life.

Now since there are friends in the movie it is mandatory to have a song where the heroes proclaim their love for each other. This is sung by Shailendra Singh and Suresh Wadkar. R D Burman is the music composer. The song has a stamp of RD all over it:- great opening piece and in between the mukhda and antara. We can also hear the harmonica (popularly called mouth organ) through the song.

Incidentally it also happens to be Suresh Wadkar’s 65th birthday. He has been active since 1977 – ‘Paheli’ and ‘Gaman’ (1978). His voice was different from the reigning voices of that time. He also is trained in classical music which is evident in “Saanjh Dhale Gagan Taley” and his numerous songs which need a clear voice at high pitch. We have 71 songs of his on the blog. We have a lot more songs out there for us to learn the range that he can sing in. For today we shall hear him here in this song and wish him a very Happy Birthday.

N.B.: There is a sad version to this song, video of which I am unable to locate.

Video – Part I (Jackie with Parikshat Sahni)(lyrics based on this)

Lyrics

o humko toh yaari se matlab hai

chaahe jhootha ya sahi
baat sach hai yahin yaara

haan humko toh yaari se matlab hai
oo humko toh yaari se matlab hai
yaar ho kaisa bhi
chaahe jhootha ya sahi
baat sach hai yahin yaara

hey ek aur ek toh gyaarah hote hai
ab toh hum wohi gyaarah hain
humko jo koyi aankhen dikhaayega
uski maut ka ishaara hai ae ae

ek aur ek toh gyaarah hote hai
ab toh hum wohi gyaarah hain
humko jo koyi aankhen dikhaayega
uski maut ka ishaara hai

ho jab tak bhi jeeye
yoon hi hasatein rahe
log kuchh bhi kahein yaara

arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
ho humko toh yaari se matlab hai
yaar ho kaisa bhi
chaahe jhootha ya sahi
baat sach hai yahin yaara

hey jeene ko jeete hain
yoon toh sabhi yaaro
jeena usiko kehte hain
jeete nahin jo apne liye hi
auron ke dil mein rehte hai hae hae
jeene ko jeete hain

jeena usiko kehte hai
jeete nahi jo apne liye hi
auron ke dil mein rehte hai
kaun rahega yahaan

kal honge kahaan yaara
hey humko toh yaari se matlab hai
ho humko toh yaari se matlab hai
yaar ho kaisa bhi
chaahe jhootha ya sahi
baat sach hai yahin yaara

hae ab toh hum kabhi
door na honge ji
apna aisa iraada hai
tere liye pyaare
jaan haazir hai
tujhse yeh mera waada hai

ho ab toh hum kabhi
door na honge ji
apna aisa iraada hai
haan tere liye pyaare jaan haazir hai
tujh se yeh mera waada hai

ho ik dooje ka hum
sada baatenge gum
aaj khaale kasam yaara
arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
ho humko toh yaari se matlab hai
yaar ho kaisa bhi
chaahe jhootha ya sahi
baat sach hai yahi yaara
arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
arre humko toh yaari se matlab hai
