Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 14
——————————————————————————

In my personal opinion, “Namak Halaal”(1982) is one movie that had come at a critical juncture in the history of HFM and also in my personal life as well. 1982 was a time when the golden era of HFM was over. Songs and also movies were plainly becoming ridiculously rubbish. This was my personal opinion and many others shared this view.

But common people, what is often described as the LCD (Lowest common denominator) could not care less. This section of moviegoers, who are not much into thinngs like class, taste etc and are more into instant gratification loved whatever was being dished at that time.

And what was that ? That was disco. Most of them mindless, brainless kind of it. Standard formula of those days was to fill the movie with a few loud disco music where lyrics did not matter much. The lyricist only had to fit in a few arbitrary words including the word Disco, and the lyrics was done. Music director had an easier time. They only had to lift tunes of disco music from west. This lifting was shameless and blatant, without giving any credit to the original composer , and obviously without buying its rights.

The person who was almost singlehandedly responsible for this rot was Bappi Lahiri.

But Bappi Lahiri was not always like that. He started his career in mid 1970s and created some veryfine compositions. His music was so catchy that I often mistook his composition for R D Burman compositions, which is real high praise for a music director. It was he who composed such catchy and often iconic songs such as Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna(Chalte Chalte)(1976), Aali re aali re Holi(Zakhmee)(1975), Pyaar maanga hai tumhi se(College Girl)(1978), Maana ho tum behad haseen (Toote Khilone) , Haan pahli baar ik ladki mera haath pakadkar (Aur Kaun), Hamse nazar to milaao (Ikraar), Tumhaaraa pyaar chaahiye mujhe jeene ke liye (Manokaamna) etc.

The problem with these tunes was that most of these tunes were class but these movies and its songs often went unnoticed. As a result, Bappi Lahiri’s career was going nowhere. So he finally decided that “to hell with class. I will compose music that sells.” So he started creating plagiarised disco songs. These songs were so popular that the entire music industy was forced to copy his disco music. And that sounded the death knell for the golden era of HFM.

Ironically, Bappi Lahiri kept producing some classy compositions even during the post Goolden era. My simple observation is that he did so when he used golden era singers in movies of golden era directors. On rest of the occasions, when mediocre producers and directors along with mediocre starcast was used, Bappi Lahiri would produce mediocre plagiarised music, and he would insist on giving playback for the hero in such movies.

“Namak Halaal”(1982) was directed by a golden era director namely Prakash Mehra. This movie, which was produced by Satyendra Pal for Chaudhary Enterprises, Bombay was a A grade movie with top stars of the day. Amitabh Bachchan was the hero. Others in the movie were Waheeda Rehman, Shashi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Smita Patil, Satyen Kappu, Ashalata, Harish, Chandrashekhar, Dev Kumar, R S Chopra, Tuntun, Asha Chandra, Aazaad, Bob Cristo, Viju Khote, Jinder Walia, Nandita Thakur, Ram Sethi, Ranjeet Sood, Om Prakash, Ranjeet etc, with special appearances by Suresh Oberoi and Kamal Kapoor.

I had watched this movie by bunking my college (so what is new 🙂 ). Being a movie goer of high standards, I did not like the movie much. Having watched the movie, I went to the college the next day in what was the college recreation room which has facilities for indoor games like carrom board, TT etc. Some sports magazines were also available there.

There a few staff were playing carrom. While playing it, one of the staff, who had watched the movie, animatedly described the movie in glowing terms to his colleagues, leaving others suitably impressed and overwhelmed. He certainly made them eager to watch the song. I was listening to the discussion and I too got inflenced and realised that the movie was not all that bad that I had thought. This movie indeed was fun to watch. subsequently, I have watched parts of this movie and realised that this movie has some parts that have become all time classic scenes. For instance, there is this scene where hotel manager (played by Ranjeet) asks hairon Singh (played by Amitabh Bachchan) if he can speak English. The scene that follows can amuse movie goers even today. It is this movie that gave us a classic dialogue- “Moochhen ho to Nathhulal jaisi warna na hon.”

The movie had five songs in it. These songs had the golden era singers in it. Kishore Kumar sang for Amitabh Bachchan and his singing made all the difference. No one else could have sung these songs with so much energy, verve and midas touch. And the picturisation of these songs were fantastic. There are cases when poor picturisation destroys the effect of a great song. But that is not the case in this movie. all the songs have been picturised superbly. watching the picturisation of these songs is a highly entertaining and fulfilling experience.

Four of these songs have been covere in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Pag ghunghroo baandh Meera naachi thi 143 11-Oct-2008
2 Jawaan jaaneman haseen dilruba 2364 27-Mar-2010
3 Raat baaqi baat baaqi 8622 1-Sep-2013
4 Thhodi si jo pee li hai 14951 23-Mar-2019

One can see that the previous song from the movie was covered more that one year ago. After covering that song, I had become aware that only one song from the movie remained. But this song was such a song that it deserved a befitting writeup, and that required time. And I for some reason or the other was not able to find time for a writeup.

So I kept dilly dallying and things kept getting delayed. Finally a time came when I was informed that “Namak Halaal”(1982) becomes eligible for the blog ten year challenge. I informed other potential writers- “Dont dare touch it. It is my song.” 🙂

So here I am, finally forced to bring thing song onboard in the blog.

This song “aaj rapat jaaye to hamen na uthhaiyo” is a rain song extraordinaire. And it becomes so because it had been sung with gusto by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. It is difficult to think of any other singers who could have sung this song with this much aplomb.

The song was picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil as a rain song. In rain songs, the actors , especially the lady gets dangerously wet. This song is one of the most dangerously wet sari song of them all. We are aware of several occasions when censors have ordered that songs be deleted because they found the picturisation as objectionable. Some examples being Balmaa khuli hawaa mein (Kashmir Ki Kali) and Jaata kahaan hai deewaane sab kuchh yahaan hai sanam (CID). Censors found the depiction of the female character objectionable in these songs. So these songs were deleted from the movie. Only their audio remain. and I need not tell you how popular these songs are.

When I posted the previous song from the movie, which was Thhodi si jo pee li hai , and which happened to be posted on 3900th day of the blog, our beloved Khyati jee censured me as well as Sudhir jee.

Congratulations Atulji and team on reaching this milestone.
I am thinking what kind of spell ASAD is under recently? Aap nashe waali baat kar rahe ho, seedhe shaade Sudhurbhai pichkaari maarne ki baat kar rahe hai… Just concerned or rather worried. 😉
Regards
Khyati

My comment was:

Agla jo gaana bacha hua hai is movie ka, that will increase your anxiety about us even more. That song is- aaj rapat jaaye. 🙂 🙂

Khyati jee commented

That song should be played/posted behind the curtain. Bachhon pe bura asar padega. 😉

The picturisation of this song is indeed like that. Fortunately Indian censors had become more liberal since the days of 1950s and 1960s and this song passed muster with the censors. The fact that this movie was directed by a heavyweight diirector and starred the biggest star of the day, who also had strong political connections must have certainly helped.

So, here is this song, the fifth and final song from “Namak Halaal”(1982). as part of blog ten year challenge. With this song, all the songs of “Namak Halaal”(1982) have been covered and this movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Under Sudhirji’s current series “Songs repeated in hindi films” he posted Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si on March 17th, that reminded me that Farooque Sheikh’s Birth anniversary was round the corner. he would have turned 72 today (25 march 2020).

I was reading up about Farooque Sheikh ((25 March 1948 – 28 December 2013) and discovered he was the son of a lawyer and was a law graduate himself. He had leanings towards theatre and met his future wife Roopa and future co-star Shabana Azmi on the stages of St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai.

His first released movie was M.S. Sathyu’s “Garam Hawa”. What followed was a list of movies that represented the meaningful cinema of the 70s and 80s, movies that were neither ART or COMMERCIAL but more of the MIDDLE-OF-THE-ROAD kind; movies that the middle class audiences of those times identified with. We saw him in Chashme Baddoor, Katha, Rang Birangi, Ek Baar Chale Aao, Faasle, Ab Aayega Maza, Biwi Ho Toh Aisi etc.
Today we shall have a song from “Biwi Ho Toh Aisi” which had an unusual pairing. We were used to seeing Farooque with Deepti Naval in most films back then, but “BHTA” had Farooque pairing with Rekha romantically, and Kadar Khan and Bindu played his parents and Salman Khan (this was Salman Khan’s debut movie) played his brother.

This was not the first time that Rekha teamed up with Farooque Sheikh. He had played a Nawaab who was in love with Umrao in Umrao Jaan. There was one other movie with the same pairing but we see Farooque Sheikh playing the typical romantic Bollywood hero here.
Here is today’s song.

phool gulaab ka

Hullo Atuldom

Back after a small absence where I terribly missed my favourite addiction- writing for the blog. Various reasons, primary being a minor mishap which has put my right hand in cast, and taken me away from the comfort of my desktop. But here I am, at the first available opportunity, when I got a few minutes with my computer. I have promised myself that I will write a very short post and obey the well-meaning advice of my friends of the blog and outside of the blog.

This post is to remember the female superstar of Indian Film Industry whose anniversary it is on 24th February. The star who was also a National award-winning actress, who had highly emotive eyes, a fabulous hold on comedy and a dancer of a calibre of her own, left us shocked by departing from this mortal world on this date two years ago. She made a beautiful pair with all her co actors be it Jaya Prada, Poonam Dhillon, Smita Patil and other ladies as also Kamalhasan, Rajnikanth, (who were her co-stars in her debut film as an adult)and all the actors of her times in the Indian film industry- name any hero or actor and you can have a movie of hers with him irrespective of the language. We have her in at least one movie with even Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Nasiruddin Shah, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt etc. It is difficult to point out who she paired successfully with or was eye-catching with.

Today’s song featuring this superstar/ actress is from an inane-typical-masala Bollywood dishoom-dishoom film that released in 1990. It was produced by MP Jain and directed by Shibu Mitra. It had a star cast which was led by Sridevi and Dharmendra along with Sonam, Chunky Pandey, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Anupam Kher, AmrishPuri, Dara Singh, Satyen Kappu as the masalas of the movie.

The music director was the flavour of those years -Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. I haven’t seen “Naakabandi”(1990) and don’t intend to either but I remember two songs from the movie – one by Usha Uthup and another is by Asha Bhonsle.

Today’s song is by Asha Bhonsle. It shows Sridevi’s dancing and emoting expertise. I am sure Saroj Khan would have been the choreographer. The situation of the song seems to be an audition in front of Sadashiv Amrapurkar (hope I am right in recognising) but is a stage song. But definitely Anjaan has given an appropriate description Sridevi through the song – she was “kamaal” in all departments of acting.

As I was seeing the video of the song, I kept feeling “how sweet?” specially at the point where she mouths Gabbar Singh’s dialogues and we have Sambha (Mcmohan) and Kaalia (VijuKhote) reacting. Really pleasing choreography.
Missing you Sridevi


Song-Rekha ko dekha toone Hema ko dekha (Naakaabandi)(1990) Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, Md-Bappi Lahiri

Hullo Atuldom

Sometimes a sudden tune or memory or word sends the mind looking for a song or visual connection. So, a few days back it was a tune in my head that sent me looking for today’s song. I remembered, rather vaguely, that the song had Ashok Kumar dancing away merrily. I remember having seen it eons ago on Doordarshan – the one source of most of my nostalgia.

I hunted down the song. I found the name of the movie it was from. Searched for it on YouTube. Enjoyed my first encounter with that movie thoroughly. It has been listed on IMDB.com under “action, crime, drama” genre. It should also have been categorised as “comedy”.

The movie had a huge cast- a set of dancing actresses headed by Shashikala, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Helen, Jayshree T., Meena T. and Shubha Khote & Manorama. The male line up was headed by Ashok Kumar, Ranjeet, Sujit Kumar, Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Jagdeep, Viju Khote, Krishan Dhawan, Chandrashekhar, Coca Cola, Pinchoo Kapoor, Birbal, Yusuf Khan (Zabisco from Amar Akbar Anthony), Babban, Pakoda Kader etc. There were a few more known faces which were billed as guest appearance- Amjad Khan, special appearance- Danny and friendly appearance -Mehmood.

There were many movies back then where we had known faces putting in appearances in these categories as a gesture to the maker of the movie. And I think I know why Mehmood did this movie as the maker S. Ramanathan had been a co-director on “Bombay to Goa”.

This movie begins on a night where Ranjeet (one of the serious persons throughout the movie) is hatching a plot to steal diamonds from the vault of Pinchoo Kapoor’s residence in the company of Sujit Kumar (he plays a dead body for half the movie)- that is where the crime angle is. As the plan is being executed Pinchoo Kapoor is shot dead (crime angle again). But he Dials 100 with the help of his pet Pomeranian -that is one intelligent pet which has a good part to play in helping recognize the lost daughters of the family. That is when the ‘drama angle’ comes into play when the pet recognizes one daughter because of her locket, takes her to the bungalow where the loyal servant of the house enquires about the girl whose photo is in the locket. Further family-drama comes into play when it turns out that the girl in possession of the above mentioned locket is also the younger daughter of the family and in the absolute climax of the movie the sisters unite and with the aide of the hero and practically the entire cast catches Ranjeet and hands him over to the cops headed by Krishan Dhawan and Chandrashekhar.

Of course, we have to sit through the movie, from the murder to reach the climax (only place where there is dishoom- dishoom in the movie), through a not-so-boring movie. Danny was a revelation as far as his comic timing was concerned. I will not spell here what transpires through the movie and spoil the fun for anyone who may wish to see this movie.

Today’s song features the tenants of Manorama’s apartment as they gather to wish the newly-engaged hero -heroine (every Bollywood movie worth its name needs a jodi) Vinod Mehra and Bindiya Goswami. Everyone is singing and having the time of their life except Bindiya Goswami. The song is sung by Manna Dey (for all the males present), Asha Bhonsle (for the females) and Bappi Lahiri for Vinod Mehra. Anjaan wrote the song and Bappida was the music director for this S. Ramanathan directed “Dial 100” which released on 2nd April 1982.

Here is the song where Ashok Kumar leads along with Aruna Irani and the rest of those present join. I have always loved songs where Ashok Kumar visibly enjoys himself. Let us also enjoy this song.

Thinking of Dada Moni today on his anniversary.

Blog Day : 4155 Post No. : 15322

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2019. There are a lot of messages being forwarded on WhatsApp and other social media platforms urging the reader to enjoy the last TEEN year in a long time to come, after this the new millennium will be on the threshold of adulthood (India has 21 as the official age at which a person is considered an adult).

Here is the first birthday post for the month. Let us all wish the “raunaq e blog”- titled bestowed on the recipient two years ago on this date- a very Happy Birthday. May she be forever healthy happy cheerful and full of life, as she has been described by Atulji and Sudhirji in their posts in the blog.

I have not gone looking for hitherto unposted Talat Mehmood songs as Atulji had suggested two years back but went with my regular practice of mixing this birthday girl with the flamboyant, evergreen, forever PACHCHEES (25) actor of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s who was forever hyperactive. And going by what the two Sutradhars of our blog have written, our birthday gal sounds to be ‘hyperactive’ and may she be forever PACHCHEES or shall I say “Aththara” (18). Wish you a very happy birthday Ben Katie a.k.a Khyatiben. Lets us have a great time today on your birthday. Let the music begin and play through the day from this end of the globe to your end.

tum jiyo hazaaron saal saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar,
sau saal jiyo tum jaan meri , or the evergreen baar baar din ye aaye.
Let all these and other birthday songs available here and elsewhere be played on loop (as kids we used to say rewind and replay the cassette). Let our dear birthday gal choose a song she likes; we shall play that too on LOOP.

Today we also remember Raju “Guide” on his 8th Remembrance Day with a song that showcases him with his typical mannerisms which I feel he adopted after around 30-35 years in the industry. That typical nod, crooked smile that made ladies go weak at the knees (or was that smile always a killer) etc. This is from the 1982 release “Swami Dada” which was produced and directed by Dev Anand and had a large cast. The ladies in the movie were Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure (she was still a teenager), Urmila Bhatt, Sushma Seth, Naaz, Christine O’Neil, Beena, Baby Khushboo etc. The male cast was headed by Dev Anand, Mithun Chakravarty, Naseeruddin Shah, Shakti Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tom Alter, Bharat Kapoor, Sudhir etc, this was Jackie Shroff’s first credited screen appearance playing Shakti Kapoor’s confidant.

The first song from this movie was posted exactly seven years back for the same occasion; at that time, I had found this on IMDB.com –

Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

On revisiting imdb I found a little more to go with the above –
Dev Anand is one of the tapori gang, handled by Kulbhushan Kharbanda. He escapes to Western country, only to come back and see that the members of the gang living in same conditions. He, himself have become a spiritual person. Named Swami. In order to break the gang, Dev poses himself as Ringo Dada. Hence the name Swami Dada
Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

“Swami Dada” had music by RD Burman and Anjaan was the lyricist. The playback for today’s song is by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar.
Thinking of the style icon, winner of Dadasaheb Phalke award (2002), Padma Bhushan (2001), and three-time filmfare award recipient one of which was the life-time achievement in 1993, and a darling of the masses for nearly sixty years who is still an inspiration and will remain one for generations to come thanks to the legacy he has left behind. I am not trying to describe the kind of movies he was associated with or anything about his biography here. Let us just get on to the song.


Song-Galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani (Swaami Dada)(1982) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

paanch ke note mein ab kya dam hai

ho o o dus ka note cigarette ko bhi kam hai
ho o ab hare note ka mol hai kya
socho kuchh oonchi baat zara
ab baat karo toh laakhon ki
dekhenge khwaab karodon ke

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho o ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

aaj sanwar ke dekha jo darpan
apni nazar se sharma gayi ee
kiske hunar ka chal gaya jaadoo
kahaan thi kahaan se kahaan aa gayi
ho mera haar

iss heere ke haar mein kya hai
apna mol toh aanko
tum kya ho kya ban sakte ho
apne dil mein jhaanko
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
asli baat na jaani ho o o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani

mil ke mere saath chalo toh
woh duniya dikhlaoon
jeete ji woh jannat kaise
milti hai batlaoon

tumko masheeha maan liya hai
ab jaana hai aur kahaan aan
tumse mile toh dekhe ujaale
varna dhuaan thhe donon jahaan
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
ho duniya ko hairaani ho o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

“Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) was directed by A Shamsheer for Amrit Kala Mandir, Bombay. the movie had Randhawa, Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Shyam Kumar, Bela Bose, Rani, Heera Saawant, Rajen Kapoor, Bhagwan, Roopesh Kumar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tarzan and Kingkong”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The song is picturised as a rajdarbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the daner. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. One can identify Shyam Kumar and Bhagwan among the audience.


Song-Dil toone kehna maana (Tarzan aur Kingkong)(1965) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Robin Bannerji

Lyrics

dil toone kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

bedardi baalma khudgarzi
bedardi baalma khudgarzi
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
main samjhoon main jaanoon re teri marji
haay pahle churaaye jiyaa phir tadpaaye
bairi badala chukaaye kaise mere ehsaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ka
haay kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana

jaa julmi dekh li teri yaari
jaa julmi dehk li teri yaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
o chhaliyaa hai jhoothi ye dildaari
are ankhiyaan ji waade kare aankhe beisraaye
haay koi thikaana nahin jis beimaan ka aa aa
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
kuchh bhi bharosa nahin
jiski jubaan ki
haay re kehna maana kis beimaan ka aa aa
dil toone kehna maana aa aa

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 51
——————————————————————————
Songs from following movies were covered in the blog ten years ago on 20th November’2009 (in descending order);

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Meri saanson ko jo mahka rahi hai Badalte Rishtey-1978 03 of 05 songs posted
Tere naam ka deewaana tere ghar ko dhoondhta hai Suraj Aur Chandaa-1973 04 of 06 songs posted
Chale bajaa ke seeti jeewan ki raahon mein Zamaanaa-1957 03 of 07 songs posted
Sainyya dekh dekh dekh main hoon laakhon mein ek Police Detective-1960 03 of 06 songs posted

As we can see from above details none of the movies represented on the blog on 20.11.2009 have achieved Yippeeee’ed status so far.

I am today presenting a song from from the movie ‘Badalte Rishtey-1978’, which, as is my wont is from the seventies.

I have vague recollections of watching this movie with my parents and brothers. I must be around eleven years then. I must have liked the movie and its songs. That is why I never forgot its ‘title song’ and couple of ohter songs. When I started collecting cassettes for my music library in 1985-86, I was on the look out for the songs of this movie. Later on, I got them into my collection.

In cassette it came in combination with the songs of ‘Doosra Aadmi-1977’ when I bought it in 1997.

The songs I like most from ‘Badalte Rishtey’ includes the title song and the song ‘meri saanson ko jo …’
Another song that I liked a lot is the song being represented today.

I remember this song very well but I had forgotten that this song had Rishi Kapoor performing it on the screen. I was under the impression that it was Jeetendra. It was only when I watched the video of this song during the preparation of this post that I realized that the song was lip synced by Rishi Kapoor, while Jeetendra and Reena Roy are also present in the picturisation of this song.

I remember this movie being well appreciated and it was a good ‘entertainer’.

“Badaltey Rishtey-1978” was directed by R. Jhalani for ‘Vijayshree Pictures, Bombay’. Sudesh Kumar was the producer of this movie while it was presented by Gobindram Ahuja.

It had Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, Reena Roy, Asrani, A.K. Hangal, Pinchu Kapoor, Shubha Khote, Urmila Bhatt, Dina Pathak, Master Raju, Onkar, Madan Joshi, Pardesi, Raja Duggal, Makhan Singh, Chander Dhani, Mrs.Kaushal, Kheura, many others and the members of the ‘Himachal Skiing Club, Simla’.

The movie introduced Shashi Bala Saxena and Rachna Bhatt. Its dialogues were written by Madan Joshi. Editing of this movie was done by B. Prasad. Diljit Singh Bugge was the Chief Assistant Director of this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Mahendra Sarai and screenplay was written by Phani Majumdar.

This movie had total five songs in it. Lyrics for all the five songs were penned by Anjaan and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Anuradha Paudwal, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog as given below;

Song Posted on
Na jaane kaise pal mein badal jaate hain 19.11.2008
Meri saanson ko jo mahka rahi hai 20.11.2009
Tum chaahe hamko pasand na karo 01.06.2019

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Though the title song of this movie was quite popular, other songs too were quite nice, hummable and popular. However, only the title from this movie make it to the annual Binaca Geetmala list of the year 1979, and it ranked on number four that year.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.11.1978.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song in Rafi Saab’s voice, and Rishi Kapoor (at his best in such situations 🙂 ) lipsyncing in an accusing tone for his lost love and pretending to sacrifice his love to save many from destroying their lives. 🙂

He befriends Jeetendra specifically so that he could sow seeds of ‘nafrat’ in Reena Roy’s mind about him who otherwise was not able to forgot her past life when she was in love with Rishi Kapoor.
Lots of twists and turns, but we only come to know about him when Asrani discloses his reality towards the end of the movie.

वो वो ना रहे
जिनके लिए ए हम थे बेक़रार
वो वो ना रहे
जिनके लिए ए हम थे बेक़रार
अब किसका इंतज़ार

आ आ आ आ आ
होना था जो हुआ जो हुआ

टूट गया झूठा ऐतबार
अब किसका इंतज़ार
अजी कैसा इंतज़ार

इक फूल टूटने से तो
उजड़ा नहीं चमन
इक फूल टूटने से तो
उजड़ा नहीं चमन

गुलशन में और भी है
हसींन फूल बेशुमार
अब किसका इंतज़ार

जिनके लिए ए हम थे बेक़रार
वो वो ना रहे

नाकामयाब इश्क सही

जिनके लिए ए हम थे बेक़रार
वो वो ना रहे

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 48
——————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1973 movie ‘Heeraa’ which made its debut on the blog on 10th Oct’2009.

Other movies represented on the blog on that day were as follows;
(Movies represented on the blog on 10.10.2009 (in descending order);

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tujh sang preet lagaayi sajnaa ho raamaa Kaamchor-1982 All Songs covered in the blog
Apne pyaar ke sapne sach huye Barsaat Ki Ek Raat-1981 03 of 05 songs covered
Main tujhse milne aayi mandir jaane ke bahaane Heera-1973 03 of 05 songs covered
Arre yaar meri tum bhi ho ghazab Teen Deviyaan-1965 All Songs covered in the blog

Kashtiyaan sab ki kinaare pe pahunch jaati hain,
Naakuda jinka nahin,
Unka khuda hota hain”

Those lines played in the background with the ‘logo’ of Sultan Productions the home production of Producer and director Sultan Ahmed.

That also reminds us of the other production houses’ logos and some of them which played some famous lines and that was also one of the thrilling experiences of watching movies in the seventies.

‘Heera’ or ‘Heeraa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed and it was his home production.

It had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Farida Jalal, Shatrughan Sinha, Helen, Kanhaiyyalal, Anwar Hussain, Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Mukri, Randhir, Tabassum, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begam, B.B. Bhalla, Polsan, Renuka, Keshav Rana, Abhimanyu Sharma, Jankidas, Master Raju, Pahalwan, Habib, Mac Mohan, Maqbool, Bam Lahiri, Abhimanyu Sharma, Master Rajoo and many others.
Faryal, Asha Potdar, Shyam Kumar, Satyendra Kappu make a friendly appearance in this movie.
The movie also introduced a sheep ‘Kaptaan’.

Story of this movie was written by K.B. Pathak. Dialogues were written by Wajahat Mirza. Wajahat Mirza also shared the screenplay writing K.B. Pathak and Sultan Ahmed. Editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Khanna and Mukri gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.10.1973.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) listed six songs on the movie page for this movie, it was however corrected in the addenda that the first song in the list, is actually only few lines of the first song in the movie ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ , and thus reducing the total number of songs of this movie to five.

This song ‘ek chhokariya beech bajariya’ was presented on the blog by our Respected Arun ji and he also had mentioned in brief about this movie and its story. (Wherein only one correction is required that the villain Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) is not arrested b the police in the end of this movie, but he gets killed during the encounter with Heera (Sunil Dutt) and the Police).

I have vague memories of watching this movie either with my Father or my Uncle. And I must be around five or six years old then. After that I have never watched this movie again.

But I always have the nostalgia with me for the song ‘main tujhse milne aayi mandir jaane ke bahaane’ from this movie. I remember this song was very popular then and was frequently played on loud speakers. (however, none of the songs from this movie made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year). Other than this song the nostalgia related with this movie that I always carried was ‘the daaku, the horses and the guns and the ‘khandahars’ 🙂

Other than the two songs mentioned above the other song which one can remember after listening to it is ‘Jai Ambe Jagdambe Maa Jai Ambe Jagdambe’ which was also heard, may be during ‘Durga Pooja’ festivals only.

And these three songs mentioned above are the three songs from this movie which have been posted in the blog so far.

One can find the today’s song also heard on radio in those days, but I think it was not much popular and forgotten easily thereafter. However this can remind us of the many this type of songs in other movies 😊

Music for this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, while two lyricists wrote the songs for this movie, Indeewar three songs and Anjaan two songs.

Today’s song is written by Anjaan and sung by Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is performed by Asha Parekh.

Asha Parekh recently celebrated her 77th birth anniversary on this 2nd October. (She was born on 2nd October 1942). We belatedly wish her a very healthy and peaceful life ahead.

This song happens to be a song in the ‘villain’s den’ where Asha Parekh and her Father Kanhaiyyalal are hostages after Balwant (Shatrughan Sinha) has abducted them. And he forces Asha Devi (Asha Parekh) to dance in his den …

‘le baandh le ye ghunghroo… aur aisaa naach ke aaj saari sabhaa mein aag lag jaaye’

Naach …

And that is why this song …

Let us now enjoy this song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.


Song-Aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye (Heera)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aaj naachoon aise ke aag lag jaaye
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

O deewaane tu sun
meri paayal ki dhun
iski jhankaar mein maut ka raag hai
ho koi sangedil
khaaq mein jaaye mil
aaj ghunghroo ke bolon mein wo aag hai
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
mujhe aise tu dekhen kyun
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye
aankh jo milaaun to aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne naa paaye ae
bujhne naa paaye

kar naa ghaayal mujhe
rang degaa tujhe
har lahu ka jo katraa giregaa yahaan
zulm itnaa na kar
yoon naa hadd se guzar
tu agar hai zameen to koi aasmaan
jaa re jaa aa
jaa re jaa
jaa re jaa aa
dekho mujhko na chhoona yoon
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye
haath naa lagaa tu
ke aag lag jaaye ae
aag lage aisi ke bujhne na paaye ae
bujhne na paaye …

आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए
आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आज नाचूँ ऐसे के आग लग जाए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए

ओ दिवाने तू सुन
मेरी पायल की धुन
इसकी झंकार में मौत का राग है
हो कोई संगदिल
खाक में जाए मिल
आज घुंघरू के बोलों में वो आग है
जा रे जा आ
जा रे जा
जा रे जा आ
मुझे ऐसे तू देखें क्यूँ
आँख जो मिलाऊं तो आग लग जाए
आँख जो मिलाऊं तो आग लग जाए ए
आग लगे ऐसी के बुझने ना पाए ए
बुझने ना पाए

कर ना घायल मुझे
रंग देगा तुझे
हर लहू का जो कतरा गिरेगा यहाँ
ज़ुल्म इतना ना कर
यूं ना हद से गुज़र
तू अगर है ज़मीन तो कोई आसमान
जा रे जा आ
जा रे जा
जा रे जा आ
देखो मुझको ना छूना यूं
हाथ ना लगा तू के आग लग जाए
हाथ ना लगा तू के आग लग जाए ए

Hullo Atuldom

The 80s was a period when there were a whole set of “Made in South” movies. Movies essentially remakes of popular and successful Telugu, Tamil and Kannada movies. Movies with nearly same formula- one hero and two heroines, both ladies loving the hero equally with the hero behaving courteously with one and loving the other passionately. To add further twist, the heroines will be sisters (as in Tohfa), childhood best friends (as in Raaste Pyar Ke), or meet accidentally and become good friends (as in Maang Bharo Sajna and Asha Jyoti).

All the movies would have good songs which used to be popular in the 80s and 90s but may have been forgotten since. The most important aspect of these movies used to be that one of the heroines would sacrifice her love or never reveal her love so that the other can lead a happy life with her partner/ husband etc. The hero in most of these South-made movies was Jeetendra and the heroines were mostly Rekha, Reena Roy, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi Chatterjee, Jaya Prada or Sridevi. Taking note of the success of Jeetendra in these movies Rajesh Khanna also acted in a few South-made movies.

Asha Jyoti was one of them. The movie had five songs with Anuradha Paudwal, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar as playback singers. Anjaan was the lyricist and Laxmi Pyare were the music directors. One song has been posted from the movie. In that post Atulji has speculated about the status of the relations between the main cast. I have seen this movie a long time back and here is the story of the movie, hope that it clears all speculations. 🙂

Asha Jyoti (1984) had Rajesh Khanna, Reena Roy and Rekha as the main cast. The film was directed by Dasari Narayana Rao, who had also directed Aaj Ka M.L.A. Ram Avtar with Khanna in the lead role and music was given by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film is remake of Telugu Movie Srivari Muchatlu (1981).

Ramesh Chander (Om Shivpuri), a businessman, asks his son Deepak (Rajesh Khanna), a musician, if he would marry his childhood friend Asha (Rekha), but Deepak keeps declining this idea. Deepak falls in love with one of his fans named Jyoti (Reena Roy), a dancer, and he informs his parents by telegram that he has chosen a girl. Deepak promises to pay off the debts owed by Jyoti’s father. But when Deepak reaches his home in Bombay (now Mumbai), he finds that Ramesh has committed suicide due to bankruptcy. Ramesh expresses his last wish that his second wife and her daughter be taken care of. Deepak is delayed in Bombay and is unable to return to Kashmir.

In Kashmir, Jyoti’s creditor asks her father for money, but Jyoti expresses her inability to pay, so the creditor warns Jyoti’s father she will be in grave trouble. When Deepak does arrive at Jyoti’s house, her father lies, saying that he has married her off to the creditor. Deepak is heartbroken and returns home.

Seth Badri Prasad (Madan Puri), a rich man and childhood friend of Ramesh, bails Deepak out from bankruptcy and gets Ramesh’s creditors to not to file suit against Deepak and to auction the bungalow that he would buy. Deepak feels indebted to Prasad. Badri Prasad had been forcing his friend Ramesh Chander to ask Deepak to marry Asha, daughter of Badri Prasad. After Deepak returns to Bombay, his mother suggests to him that he should now get settled in his life and bring some happiness in his life and so he marries Asha. During the wedding, Deepak observes a woman similar to Jyoti. Deepak searches for the Jyoti lookalike and finds the woman was actually Jyoti.

Now Deepak knows that Jyoti was not married to Hukumchand (Roopesh Kumar) and that her father had lied to him. Jyoti had come to Bombay in search of Deepak and tells him that she is the mother of Deepak’s child. Deepak decides to end his marriage with Asha and to tell Asha the truth, but Jyoti insists that Asha would not be able to remarry as society might discard her. Jyoti asks Deepak to act as if they had never met and be a loyal husband of Asha, so that Jyoti can take care of Deepak’s child.

Later, Jyoti becomes a popular dance teacher in her city. Asha decides to learn dancing form Jyoti and they become close friends. Asha discloses that her husband is not loving her and he does not even come close to her. Jyoti visits Asha’s home and learns that Asha is none other than Deepak’s wife. Jyoti tells Deepak to be a true husband to Asha and give Asha the pleasures of married life.

Asha learns that Jyoti and Deepak were lovers before her marriage to Deepak and suspects they are having an affair. Asha found that Deepak and Jyoti are well-wishers of Asha, are innocent and victims of the unpredictable nature of fate. After coming to know the truth, Asha and Jyoti decide to sacrifice their respective lives to let the other live a nice happy married life with Deepak.

Sitting through the movie was not a pain. I loved the way the ladies (over) dressed in silk sarees and had extra long hair plaited in the traditional South Indian Style complete with a garden full of flowers on their hair and heavy jewellery. There was a time in my life when I yearned to have hair like my idol -Rekha- sported in these movies. These movies also showed that Rekha was an artist who followed all instructions of the choreographer and enacted the semi-classical dances that were there in the movie, as can be seen in the song of this movie that is already posted. She also had large eyes that conveyed a variety of emotions.

Today’s song comes towards the end of the movie where we have Asha dressing up Jyoti as a bride and trying to rectify the wrong that fate has delivered on Deepak and his Jyoti (the movies in this genre excelled in naming their characters). We also see that Deepak and Jyoti are not comfortable with this turn of events but Asha prevails on them and we have this Asha Bhonsle play backed song.

I am sure the readers have guessed why I chose a song that has the “oh! so beautiful!” Rekha for today’s post. Yes, she turns a year older today and it has become a compulsion for me that write atleast a small post to wish her.
Wish you a very happy birthday Rekhaji.


Song-Aayi pehli milan ki wo raat (Asha Jyoti)(1984) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

ho o o
kitne saawan pyaase tarse
tabhi suhaagan raat aati hai
aati hai toh
pyaar se mann ka kora aanchal bhar jaati hai
kora aanchal bhar jaati hai ae
pyaase mann pe huyi kya barsaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
yeh hai do saanson ka sangam
apne jiya ko bas mein rakhna
dil ki dhadkan jaaye na thham
kaisi hoti hai
kaisi hoti hai pehli mulaakaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
pyaar se saajan ka mann jeete
wahi dulhan hai yahaan suhaagan
o o o o
kiski jeet huyi re kiski maat
sawere hume batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

Jaane Jaana Yoon Na Dekho Aaj Nafrat Se Mujhe” – this lovely lilting from the 1963 film ‘Faulaad’, is the creation of the songwriter Anjaan. A poet who has given us some of the most wonderful gems of the Hindi screen. Songs like “Pipraa Ke Patwaa Sarikhe Doley Manwaa” (‘Godaan’, 1963), “Bahaaro Thaam Lo Ab Dil, Mera Mehboob Aata Hai”(‘Namaste ji’, 1965), “Aap Ke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Nayaa Noor Hai”(‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, 1966),  “Aaj Tumse Door Ho Kar, Aise Royaa Mera Pyaar”(‘Ek Raat’, 1967), and “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriyaa Kaise Chamke”(‘Bandhan’, 1969) – and on to “Rotey Huye Aate Hain Sab, Hansta Hua Jo Jaayegaa. . .”(‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’, 1978), “Maano To Main Ganga Maa Hoon, Naa Maano Te Behtaa Paani”(‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’, 1978), “O Khaike Paan Barnaaras Waala” (‘Don’, 1978), “Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi” (‘Namak Halaal’, 1982), “Gori Hain Kalaayi’aan, Tu La De Mujhe Hari Hari Choodiyaan” (‘Aaj Ka Arjun’, 1990). And many more.

Remembering Anjaan on the 22nd anniversary of his passing away, earlier this week (3rd September).

Today, I present another wonderful song penned by him – a song that has been forgotten and has remained obscure for decades. The film is equally obscure – ‘Lady of the Lake’ from 1960. The film is produced and directed by AM Khan, under his own banner of AM Khan Productions, Bombay. It is a fantasy cum stunt film. The list of actors includes Azad, Krishna Kumari, Shaam Kumar, Sherry, Jai, Neelima, Shahgul, Ram, Fani Tinchar, Jilani, Jameela, Baby Leela, OK, Avtar, Maqbool, Robert, and Burhan etc.

The film has nine songs shared between three songwriters. Five songs are written by Anjaan, one by Saba Afghani and the remaining three by Munshi Naayab. Two songs of this film are already represented on our blog.  Today’s song is also from the pen of Anjaan. Music for all the songs is composed by the music director duo of Suresh-Talwar.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by Nitin Shah.

This song is a duet in the voices of Geeta Dutt and Mahendra Kapoor. Here is duet combination of two well known singers, who came together very rarely during their careers. There may probably be fifteen or maybe less, songs that they have sung together.

A wonderful lilting melody that should have been heard more often. I am sure you would agree.

 


Song – Sun Re O Chhalia, Boley Kya Paayaliya (Lady Of The Lake) (1960) Singers – Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Suresh-Talwar

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

sun re o chhaliya
boley kya paayaliya
chhed ke dil ke taar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja
o tere bina ratiya
o re mann basiya
soona laage sansaar
sajanwa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

kab se baithi raah mein teri
baalam aas lagaaye
ho oo oo balam aas lagaaye
itne din ke baad miley bhi
to tum rahe paraaye
ho oo oo
do dil milne na paaye
behki adaayen
tujh ko bulaayen
dil hai bada beqraar
sajanwa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

jaadu ajab chalaaye gori
tera roop suhaana
ho oo oo tera roop suhana
pehli jhalak mili jab teri
dil ho gaya deewana
haaye ab isey kahaan hai jaana
ruk ja re ruk ja
palkon mein chhup ja
kar le ji bhar pyaar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja
o sun re o chhaliya
boley kya paayaliya
chhed ke dil ke taar
sajanawa aaj na ja
balamwa aaj na ja

सुन रे ओ छलिया
बोले क्या पायलिया
छेड़ के दिल के तार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
ओ तेरे बिना रसिया
ओ रे मन बसिया
सूना लगे संसार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

कब से बैठी राह में तेरी’
बालम आस लगाए
हो ओ ओ बालम आस लगाए
इतने दिन के बाद मिले भी
तो तुम रहे पराये
हो ओ ओ
दो दिल मिलने ना पाये
बहकी अदाएँ
तुझ को बुलाएँ
दिल है बड़ा बेक़रार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा

जादू अजब चलाये गोरी
तेरा रूप सुहाना
हो ओ ओ तेरा रूप सुहाना
पहली झलक मिली जब तेरी
दिल हो गया दीवाना
हाय अबे इसे कहाँ है जाना
रुक जा रे रुक जा
पलकों में छुप जा
कर ले जी भर प्यार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
ओ सुन रे ओ छलिया
बोले क्या पायलिया
छेड़ के दिल के तार
सजनवा आज न जा
बलमवा आज न जा
