#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet #(Birthday of Actor – Arun Govil )
——————————————-——————————

Today 12th January’2023 is the sixty-fifth birthday of actor Arun Govil. (He was born on 12th January’1958).

Arun Govil made his debut in Hindi Films in 1977 in the movie ‘Paheli’. However the main hero in this movie was Satyajeet. After ‘Paheli-1977’, he quickly graduated to lead roles in Rajshree Production movies such as ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin’, ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ and ‘Radha Aur Seeta’. All these three movies were released in the year ‘1979’. While ‘Raadha Aur Seeta’ didn’t fare well commercially, ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ was a highly successful movie of its time and ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin’ was also a decently successful movie though not on the scale of ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’.

Arun Govil shot to fame with the movie ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’. While he continued to act in movies further he didn’t get that kind of success as ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’. It was much later in 1987-1988 with the TV serial ‘Ramayan’ wherein he played ‘Lord Ram’ that he got the same success and fame. Earlier he had appeared in the TV serial ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ as well.

In between he acted in many movies, mostly as second lead or in supporting roles.

Today on the occasion of the birthday of Arun Govil we will enjoy a song from the movie ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin-1979’.

One well known song from this movie has been posted on the blog for the same occasion in 2018. I had been listening to this song since my growing up days. And I remember this song sung by Shailendra Singh was frequently played on radio then. Though it was a ‘negative song’ in the sense as it speaks of the ‘bebasi’ of the hero 🙂 (as Atul ji had mentioned while presenting this song on the blog in his post here).

While I was aware of this above song I had never attentively listened to the other songs from this movie till today. For this post I checked other songs of this movie and selected a song which has a special ‘touch of music of Raam-Laxman’. (It reminds me of his songs composed for Dada Kondke movies in Marathi.).

None of the songs of ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin-1979’ made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala of 1979’. And for that matter none of the songs of ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ also made it to the ‘top 35 songs of 1979’ (I wonder why?). Though, one song of this movie appeared in the ‘annual Binaca Geetmala list of 1980’ – ‘chaand jaise mukhde pe’ – which stood at no.20 among the top forty songs.

I like the songs of this movie very much and so when I came into contact with this blog I had shared some songs of this movie, while the most known song of this moviewwas already posted on the blog earlier.

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin-1979’ was directed by Satyen Bose for ‘Ruchi Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tarachand Barjatya.

It had Arun Govil, Madhu Kapoor, Urmila Bhatt, Arvind Deshpande, Baby Komal, Om Shivpuri, Gajanan Jagirdar, Amar Shan, Ram Mohan, Mushtaq Merchant, Javed Khan, Birbal, Surendra Kumar, Master Sandeep, C.S. Dubey, Datta Bhatt, Rajan Kapoor, Arjun Bakshi, Brajendra Mohan, Narbada Shankar, Pardesi, Mansaram, Mukund Bannerjee, Radheshyam Dixit, Taneja, Uma Khosla, Madhumita, Hansani Dutt, Veena Kapoor, Raj Verma, Albela and others.

The story idea of this movie was by Sharad Joshi. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Govind Moonis. Editing was done by Mukhtar Ahmed.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.03.1979. (Alphabetically the next movie of this year ‘1979’ was ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’ which was passed by Censor Board on 31.08.1979. Whereas, the third movie of Arun Govil of this year which was ‘Raadha Aur Seeta-1979’, was passed by Censor Board on 27.06.1979
Music for all the three movies was composed by different music directors i.e. Rajkamal for ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do’, Raam-Laxman for ‘Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin’ and Ravindra Jain for ‘Raadha Aur Seeta’.).

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin” has five songs. four were written by Kulwant Jani and one by Ravinder Rawal.
Music for this movie was composed by Raam-Laxman.

Shailendra Sing and Usha Mangeshkar were the two singers whose voices featured in the songs of this movie.

Today’s song is routine ‘question-answer’ or ‘paheli’ (not very difficult one ) song between two lovers which is sung by Shailendra Singh and Usha Mangeshkar. Arun Govil and Madhu Kapoor lip-sync the song on screen.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and wish Arun Govil a ‘very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’ …

Lyrics for today’s song are by Kulwant Jani.

Blog Day :

The recent months have been very different for me as I was going through many things including many thoughts going through my mind. (I will be trying to put them in my write-ups and present them in future on the blog.).

There was a busy work schedule at work whole of July-August as we shifted the whole warehouse from one place to another (around 10 kms from original location). Thereafter it was getting settled at new location and matching the speed with the requirements of Production in the factory. Add to this the daily travel to reach the workplace and coming back to home. I was not getting into the right mood of writing.

And that is the reason I was less active on the blog. But I was never away from listening music and even watching movies in theaters. I had always loved watching movies in theaters and it gives me immense pleasure. So far in the recent one month I have watched four movies in the theaters. I enjoyed all of them.
On the other hand I was getting my daily dose of listening radio especially Vividh Bharati on FM every morning and evening on my way to office and back.

There have been many songs which I get to listen on radio for the first time and in many cases I always wish that I would present them on the blog. But as the days passed I tend to forget the songs listened. The program in the evening, which I listened to most, plays non-stop Hindi song and doesn’t mention the movie-name the songs are from. So over the period, it slips and after few months I get reminded of such songs again or even the songs get played on after a long gap in the same program.

Today’s song is one such song which I had first listened almost more than one and half-year back. I had then thought to present this on the blog. Because this song is a very nice song or rather a gem of a song but not much heard, may be because it is not from the golden period of Hindi songs.

This song is from the film ‘Maashuka’ (1987).

‘Maashuka’ was directed by Arati Bhattacharya for Harshavardhan Films.

She had also written the story of this movie. (Aarti Bhattacharya was a Bengali actress who also worked in Bhojpuri and Hindi movies as actress, script writer and director. From the information given on her wiki page I guess that the actor in his movie Kunaal is the same person whom she married, and who also was an Bhojpuri actor. There is information available on Aarti Bhattacharya on internet which needs to be compiled in detail for presentation).

The film was produced by Rajiv Ranjan Singh. It had Kunaal, Moonmoon Sen, Arun Govil, and Zarina Wahab, with Shoma Anand. Sachin had a friendly appearance in this movie and then there was Amjad Khan above all of them. Paintal, Murli, Asha Sharma, Master Ravi, Bhagwan Sinha, Shivraj, Mukesh Kumar, Anwar, Fanu, Dharm Raj, Maharana, Ratan, Birender, Sushil Yadav, Master Akash, Gupta, Harisharan, S. Madan, Prabha Mishra and others. Pradeep Kumar also had a special appearance in this movie.

Dulal Dey was the screenplay writer and associate director of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Nawab Arzoo.
Editing of this film was done by Bibhuti Bhushan. S Tewari and RK Aroon had written the lyrics of the songs in this movie. Asha Bhonsle, Suresh Wadkar, Shabbir Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Manhar, Ratna Aroon, Subhash and Kunal have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by RK Aroon. This name is new for me and I am not aware much about this music director. Also there is very less information available about him.

This movie had total six songs. Today we listen to a song from this movie which is sung by Shabbir Kumar and penned by Shardanand Tewary.

I think both the lyricist and the music director will make their debut on the blog with the debut of this movie on the blog today.

Incidentally, when I remembered this song on 26th October and checked for biographical details of Shabbir Kumar it was his sixty-ninth birthday on that day. He was born on 26th October 1954.

We belatedly wish Shabbir Kumar a very happy birthday on the blog.

Shabbir Kumar has sung many songs in the eighties and nineties and I too like many of his songs which I would like to present here in follow-up posts.

For today, let us enjoy this wonderful song …

On screen, it is actor Kunaal lip-syncing the song and also seen in the picturisation of this song are Moonmoon Sen and Arun Govil.


Song-Chaand gagan mein hai tanha (Maashuka)(1987) Singer-Shabbir Kumar, Lyrics-Shardanand Tewary, MD-RK Aroon

Hullo Atuldom

So, we have post number 16700 up. Congratulations to Atulji on yet another Hundred. There was a time, not so long back, when we used to have a century every month. Atulji, please confirm, wasn’t there a fastest century too- a century in 16 days? In the run up to my previous post I had noticed that “this date last year” i.e. 15th December 2020, the blog had celebrated its 16100th post with this post which also happened to be the music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan’s 1000th on the blog. I was wondering how Atulji will make post number 16700 special and it is indeed special considering the time-period of that song (1947). Hearty congratulations Atulji.

Let us kick-start the new century with a song from the 1981 release “Shradhanjali”. This was written and directed by Anil Sharma (who was only 21 then), produced by K C Sharma and had Hemant Bhonsle’s music and songs written by Anjaan. Bhupinder Singh, Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, and Shobha Gurtu were the playback singers used.

The movie had a cast headed by Rakhee (in one of her sacrificing Naari roles) and Deepak Parasher was her romantic hero. Arun Govil played her Devar (brother-in-law) who is in awe of her and simply worships her. Madhu Kapoor was Arun Govil’s romantic interest, Sulochana was mother to Deepak Parasher and Arun Govil and Rakhee’s mother-in-law. Suresh Oberoi played the spoke-in-the-wheel that topples Rakhee’s apple cart. Then the movie had K.N. Singh, Jankidas, Yunus Parvez, Manik Dutt, Keshto Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni etc bringing up the supporting cast; all of whose characters together make the movie a ‘sob-story-movie’ which became Rakhee’s forte’ for a few years in the 80s. The Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu Bhopali also makes an appearance in the movie for the song that was sung by Shobha Gurtu.

I have very little knowledge about the Qawwali singer Shakeela Banu, though I have seen the song from ‘Shradhanjali’ a few times in my life. Her facial expressions were very pretty. This is what our dear Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has written about Shakeela Banu Bhopali in his latest post (and I quote, hope he doesn’t mind it)

The other famous qawwal in films was Shakeela Banu Bhopali. She was multitalented. She acted in 32 films, but sang only 4 songs in 3 films. She too gave music to just 1 film- ‘Maze Le Lo’- 1975. She died on 16-12-2002.

This was part of a post that highlighted Jaani Babu Qawwal in Arunkumarji’s current series on ‘songs from artiste name films’

As per what I read somewhere on the internet, she had lost her voice due to the Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984. She passed away of a cardiac arrest on 16th December, 2002.

On to the song that is part of the wedding rituals of Madhu Kapoor and Arun Govil. We can see Suresh Oberoi welcoming the groom and the baaraat of which Arun Govil’s bhabhima (Rakhee) and her chief advisor (K.N. Singh) who is helping her in resurrecting her husband’s business after Suresh Oberoi ruins it and is the cause of Deepak Parasher’s death.


Song-Sainyya doli leke aaye tere dwaare sawere leke jaayenge(Shradhhanjali)(1981) Singer-Shobha Gurtu, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Hemant Bhonsle
Chorus

Lyrics

sainya doli leke
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

gori kar le tu solah singaar
ye din phir na aayenge
gori kar le tu solah singaar
ye din phir na aayenge

sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

maathe pe chanda ki bindiya lagaa doon
haan haan bindiya laga doon
maathe bindiya lagaa doon

ankhiyon mein badra ka kajra saja doon
haan haan kajra sajaa doon
naina kajra saja doon

phoolon ke ras mein
chunri ranga ke
phoolon ke ras mein chunri ranga ke
gale pehna doon
gale pehna doon ye chandrhaar
to raaja lut jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

saj saj ke aaya tere sapnon ka raaja
haan haan sapnon ka raaja
tere sapnon ka raaja

peechhe baaraati
aage aage band baja
haan haan aage band baja
sajeela band baja

gore gore haathon mein hogi varmaala
gore gore hathon mein hogi varmaala
hogi unse
hogi unse teri ankhiyaan chaar
to naina sharmaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

chunri dupatte ka bandhan judega
haan haan bandhan judega
naya bandhan judega

phir saath pheron mein jiyara udega
haan haan jiyara udega
tera jiyara udega
paanv ke neeche neeche honge sitaare
paanv ke neeche neeche honge sitaare
tere aanchal mein
tere aanchal mein hogi bahaar
do pyaase dil mil jaayenge
sainya doli leke aaye tere dwaar
sawere leke jaayenge

Blog Day : 3669 Post No. : 14546

Less than a week ago, we remembered our beloved Rafisaab on his death anniversary.
Today happens to the birth anniversary of another of our beloved legends, Kishore Kumar (popularly referred to as Kishoreda). So we very fondly remember him today and pay tribute to him.

Both Rafisaab and Kishoreda died when just in their 50s – both of them could have easily gone for many more years. But life and death matters are not in our hands – we can only thank them for what they have given us, the legacy they have left behind for generations to relish.

As with Rafisaab, I have written a lot about Kishoreda already on this blog. I am extremely fond of him – as I have said many times, it is never a competition for me between artistes. This isn’t an Olympics event where if one has to get gold, the other can at best aspire for silver.

I remember a poll in the late 70s, where people had to vote on who was the better singer, Kishoreda or Rafisaab. I don’t remember who came up with the poll but those were times when Kishoreda was the reigning star. He himself felt so embarrassed by this poll that he conveyed his unhappiness at it and it ended.

Professional rivalry apart, Kishoreda and Rafisaab had great respect for each other and were actually very good friends. Amit Kumar, Kishoreda’s son, has narrated stories about their friendship. So all this petty thinking is in the minds of people and not those who are the topic of discussion.

Personally, I have always stayed away from discussions trying to pull down one artiste to make the other look better. Thankfully, the world of music is like an ocean – it has room for everyone to contribute to, and partake of, its treasures.

Amongst the artistes, sure, there might be competition to be better than the other – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It only makes one strive to be better.

I remember Laxmikant-Pyarelal saying that if RD Burman came out with a hit album, L-P wanted to do better with their next. And RD had the same competitive spirit. But it was never malicious, or to run down the other.

As music lovers, we benefit from this – we get the best of all worlds.

Now let me talk a little bit more about Kishoreda since this post is a tribute to him.

Where do I start?

With his singing of course.

I am fond of Kishore Kumar the actor too. I’ve seen many of his comedy films of the 50s and 60s.

I am also much-impressed by Kishore Kumar, the producer/director. Contrary to his image of being more of a prankster and comedian, his films Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971) are thought-provoking, sensitive, films with depth. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see a different side of Kishore Kumar.

I am also impressed by Kishore Kumar the composer. He composed almost entirely only for his own films – and did a wonderful job at it.

Considering he was also the writer for his own films, it gives us an idea of what a brilliant all-rounder he was. It is hard enough to do one job, but to do so many so effortlessly requires genius.

And Kishoreda definitely qualifies for this. Much like Sir Gary Sobers, former West Indian cricketer, who, as an all-rounder, could do practically anything on a cricket field.

And yet, despite all this, what Kishoreda will be best-remembered for, and what he absolutely excelled in, was as a singer.

Which is why I would like to discuss more about his singing now.

I’ve said this many times before – I grew up with Kishoreda all around me. Those were the early 70s – and Kishoreda was everywhere. You had to live in that time to realize how much he dominated that period. Or, if you want evidence, just check Binaca Geet Mala lists and you will know.

I don’t need any such evidence – I know that every single day Kishoreda dominated song programmes on radio that were based on the latest Hindi film songs. The female voice might have been largely split between Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, but the male voice was Kishore, Kishore and Kishore.

It was often for Rajesh Khanna, but even when it wasn’t, it was Kishore. It could be Kishore for Shashi Kapoor (Sharmilee) or for Dharmendra (Blackmail) or for Jeetendra (Parichay) or Dev Anand (Gambler) but it was Kishore all the way.

Occasionally there’d be a male voice of a “new” song that was not Kishore. That song often stood out as an exception. It could be Rafisaab or Mukesh or Manna Dey. But it was always the exception, not the norm.

So THIS was the environment in which I grew up. My school classmates used to sing a lot of songs – they were invariably Kishore songs. In particular, I remember songs like “o mere dil ke chain” (which was my favourite at one time), “chalte chalte”, “o maajhi re” and “zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hain”.

But of course there were many more.

My own favourite would keep changing. I had this concept of a favourite song which I’d sing non-stop (driving others crazy) till another favourite took over.

I remember it was at one time “ye shaam mastaani”, then “sama hai suhaana suhaana”, then “jaane ja dhoondhta phir raha” took over, to be displaced by “o mere dil ke chain” (this was favourite for a very long time) and then “tere bina zindagi se koi” took over. There might have been others too, I can’t remember now. In between, there were umpteen songs that I’d sing while taking a break from my favourite. 🙂 Obviously, all to myself only – which is why I am still alive. 🙂

This post is already getting a bit long but I’ll mention one anecdote from school days. I was in 8th Standard. In those days, we’d often ask our teachers for a “free period” – sometimes a teacher would be nice enough to oblige. Boys would then go up to the front of the class and sing songs.

Once our English teacher gave us a “free period”. The best singer in the class, by name Prasad, went up to sing. Suddenly he announced “I’ll sing this song because it is Raja’s favourite”. Now I was quite a favourite of my teacher, maybe because I was reasonably good in English. She immediately looked at me – I am pretty sure she expected an “English” song. Maybe Carpenters or Rolling Stones, or Beatles, or some such group. She probably had that idea about me.

Prasad started singing “o mere dil ke chain”.

I could see the look on my teacher’s face. It was like she had been hit by a brick. A Hindi song? That too a film song? That too, a romantic song? Bhajan hota to phir bhi chal jaata. I turned red, and immediately averted my eyes, looking down throughout, hoping the earth would just open up and swallow me. I was sitting in the front row, right in front of her, so there was no place to hide. Prasad must have sung very well – he always did – but I couldn’t listen to one word. I was too busy lost in my own “misery” to pay attention to anything else.

Somehow I managed to survive – though I think my teacher never quite saw me the same way again. 🙂 Prasad has a lot to answer for. 🙂

Today, this anecdote suddenly came to mind as I was writing this post. Wonderful memories – of Kishore Kumar songs, enjoyed with my classmates in school.

The point is to emphasise how much of an influence Kishore Kumar had on me at that time. Rafisaab came into my life much later.

By the time the 1980s came along I could not keep track of the latest songs. Partly because I got busy, partly because I didn’t like where music was headed. (“Angrezi mein kehte hain” and “shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal”, you know I’m looking at you :-)).
Anyway, it wasn’t Kishore’s fault. His voice was always a delight to listen to.

Now onto the song for today.

This is a song I’d never heard before till Avinashji brought it to my attention a few weeks ago. I’d never even heard of the film.

The original idea was to possibly post it as Kishoreda’s 1100th song on this blog, but since another song took that place, we are posting this as his birthday song. The lyrics are, as usual, by Avinashji.

The song is “geeton mein mere” from Geet Ganga (1982). The film itself makes its debut on this blog today.

It is a pleasant song which grows on me the more I listen to it. I have already listened to it quite a few times.

The lyrics, referring to songs flowing like the Ganga, have a nice feel to them. Anjaan, the lyricist, being a native of Varanasi, had his own style of lyrics, often bringing a Bhojpuri feel to them. And this song referring to the Ganga is in the tradition of other songs written by him which also refer to it – “Ganga kinaare waala”, “maano to main Ganga maa hoon”, “Ganga mein dooba” for example.

The song is picturised on Arun Govil, and as he “sings”, the words resonate with me.

jhoom ke aise ae
geet sunaaun
nafrat mein bhi preet jagaaun
dushman ko bhi meet banaaun
jo dil chhu le ae
geet wo gaaun
swarg utaaraa
saat suron mein bahe re jag saara

Lovely lines – and it is wonderful to listen to Kishore Kumar singing them. Indeed “jo dil chhu le, geet wo gaaun” suits him – he sang many songs that touched our heart.

I hope you like the song too.

On this note, I will end this post as it has already become somewhat long.

All I will say is, Kishore Kumar will always remain in our hearts as a very special person – one of a kind.

Thank you for everything, Kishoreda.

“Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979) was directed by Satyen Bose for Ruchi Films, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Madhu Kapoor, Urmila Bhatt, Arvind Deshpande, Baby Komal, Om shivpuri, Gajanan Jaageerdaar, Amar Shan, Ram Mohan, Mushtaq Merchant, Javed Khan, Birbal, Surendra Kumar, Master Sandeep, C S Dube, Datta Bhatt, Rajan Kapoor, Arjun Bakshi, Vrajendra Mohan, Narbada Shankar, Pardesi, Mansaram, Mukund Bannerji, Radheshyam Diit, Taneja, Uma Khosla, Madhumita, Hansni Dutt, Veena Kapoor etc in it.

This “social” movie had five songs in it.

Today is the 60th birthday of Arun Govil, the hero of the movie who was barely 21 years old at that time. How time flies.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979). This song is sung by Shailendra Sinh and it is picturised on Arun Govil, with a lady, which I presume isv Madhu Kapoor also visible. Kulwant Jaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Laman.

The song is one that I had heard during its days, though I was not aware about its details. when I paid attention to the lyrics I found this song quite a “negative” song where the hero is expressing his “bebasi” throughout the song. Quite a sissy kind of song, if you ask me. Heroes should be tough and determined, not “what can I do” kind of characters. 🙂 He should rather sing -“nahin main nahin dekh sakta tujhe rote huye”. 🙂

Anyway, here is wishing Arun Govil a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.

With this song, “Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin”(1979) makes its debut in the blog.

Song-Mere bas mein agar kuchh hota (Saanch Ko Aanch Nahin)(1979) Shailendra Singh, Kulwant Jaani, Ram Laxman

Lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
saara dard akele sah leta
tujhe main gham koi uthhaane na deta

tu haal mera na jaane
main haal tera na jaanoon
kaisi hai ye majboori
main tum tak aaun kaise
lagta hai ab to aise
yug yug ki hai doori
main hoon bebas warna kisi ko
judaai ke ye kaante bichhaane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota to
aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta

hone do jo hai hona
hai pyaar hamaara sona
toota kaanch nahin hai
ye yaad rahe ae humdum
ek roz milenge hum tum
saanch ko aanch nahin hai
mujhe ye vishwaas na hota
to door tujhe nazron se jaane na deta
mere bas mein agar kuchh hota
to aansu teri aakhon mein aane na deta
saara dard akele sah leta
tujhe main gham koi uthhaane na deta

मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
सारा दर्द अकेले सह लेता
तुझे मैं ग़म कोई उठाने न देता

तू हाल मेरा न जाने
मैं हाल तेरा ना जानूं
कैसी है ये मजबूरी
मैं तुम तक आऊँ कैसे
लगता है अब तो ऐसे
युग युग कि है दूरी
मैं हूँ बेबस वरना किसी को
जुदाई के ये कांटे बिछाने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता

होने दो जो है होना
है प्यार हमारा सोना
टूटा कांच नहीं है
ये याद रहे अये हमदम
एक रोज़ मिलेंगे हम तुम
सांच को आंच नहीं है
मुझे ये विश्वास न होता
तो दूर तुझे नज़रों से जाने न देता
मेरे बस में अगर कुछ होता
तो आंसू तेरी आँखों में आने न देता
सारा दर्द अकेले सह लेता
तुझे मैं ग़म कोई उठाने न देता

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.

Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

Basics of Music- Part III (Raag and Thhaat)
——————————————–

In part I, we introduced swars and mentioned that combination of swars constitutes melody. In part II, we introduced the concept of Rhythm (taal) and mentioned that it is the combination of melody and rhythm that makes music what it is today.

Each of the two parts were quite heavy duty stuff for people not exposed to such stuff earlier. I got some comments on part I, but hardly any for the second part, which may mean that these concepts may have been going above the heads of readers. Nevertheless, these concepts are vital and they needed to be introduced. Here is the third part of the discussion on basics of music.
