In recent days the ‘Yippeeee’ activity has taken a backseat on the blog. The ‘Yippeeee’ project too has been slowed down, and it is almost one year now when our ‘Yippeeee Guru’ had appeared last giving his darshan to ‘Yippeeee members like me’. 😊

I wished we should be ‘Yippeeee’ing’ at least one movie in a week if not daily. The last Yippeeee moment on the blog was on 27th July’2021 when the final song of movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ got covered and the movie got YIPPEED.

There are quite a few movies waiting for their final song to be covered in the blog and thus getting admitted to the club of YIPPEED movies.

Today we induct one more movie to the hall of fame of YIPPEELAND. This movie is ‘Saudagar-1973’.

I had watched this movie years back on a TV channel. But until I had not watched this movie, I mainly associated this movie with its songs ‘Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon’ and ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ . I think these two songs were the well-known songs from this movie. But after watching the movie I do like other couple of songs from this movie and mainly the ‘majhi song’ – ‘door hai kinaaraa’ which grows up on us as we listen to it more and more. I like the movie and story content and presentation too.

This movie debuted on the blog on 04.04.2009 with its first song Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon. After that within a gap of less than two weeks the second song of this movie was posted on the blog and this was ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ which got posted on 15.04.2009.

One more known song from this movie i.e., Tera mera saath rahe followed the second song just after a gap of one day and this was posted on 17.04.2009. The fourth song of this movie followed the third song and was posted on next day i.e., on 18.04.2009. The fourth song posted on the blog was ‘Door hai kinaaraa, gehri nadi ki dhaaraa’.

After this fourth song the movie had to wait the next ten years when its fifth song was posted on the blog. This song was presented by Shri. Sudhir ji. He discussed the story and other details of this movie in his post. This fifth song was ‘champa nahin, chameli nahin, main genda nahin, gulaab nahin… main hoon phool baano’. I would request our readers to visit this post to read about the movie in detail. This song was posted in ‘Blog Ten Years Challenge’ on 04.04.2019. This was the fifth song from this movie posted on the blog.

The sixth song of this movie then appeared after a gap of more than a year and was posted on the blog on 09.10.2019. This song was ‘Husn hai ya koi qayaamat hai’. This song-post was presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji as tribute to the music director Ravindra Jain on his Remembrance Day. Peevesie’s Mom ji had also discussed about the story and other details of the movie in her post. I will not repeat them all again here.

Today’s song is the seventh and final song of this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Padma Khanna lip-syncs the song on the screen. Amitabh Bachchan is also seen in the picturization.

“Saudagar-1973” was a ‘Rajshri Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay’ ‘s presentation. It was directed by Sudhendu Roy. It had Nutan, Amitabh Bachchan, Padma Khanna, Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V. Gopal, C.S. Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadir, Rasraj, Paritosh Chaudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Roy, Jugnu, Chandu Ilaahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habiba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiyya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, Baby Shameena and many others.

This movie had seven songs. All songs of this movie were written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Saudagar-1973’ as mentioned in HFGK-Vol-V (1971-1980).

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is from “Zameen Ke Taare” (1960) not to be confused with the modern day “Taare Zameen Par” (2007). Both the movies had children as center of the movies. But that is where the similarities end.

“Zameen Ke Taare” had a cast of Daisy Irani, Honey Irani, Motilal, Achala Sachdev, Prem Kumar, Kiran Kumari, Anwar Hussain, Kumud Tripathi, Tun Tun, etc. I think Mumtaz and Jayshree T. too were in the movie as child actors. It was directed by Chandulal Shah and produced by Navinchandra Shah for Chandra Movies. It had music by S. Mohinder and songs were written by Tanveer Naqvi, Pandit Indra and Anand Bakshi. The movie had Asha Bhonsle, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey and Mohd Rafi as playback singers. It had eight songs of which the blog has the following three.

Song Date of posting
Tinke pe tinka chhutti ke din ka 2 June 2011
Deep gagan ke tum ho 29 November 2016
O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron 8 september 2020

The last song posted (O mere pyaaron zameen ke taaron) had a post by Nahmji. It was an attempt to combine the birthdays of the singing legend Asha Bhonsle and music director of yesteryears S. Mohinder. Almost like what I am attempting with this post. And just like Nahmji, I also realized that the composer of the ’50s and ’60s passed away last September on the 6th, two days before he would have turned 95. I read through this news item which was written by Kushal Gopalka. It gave me a lot of knowledge about the music director of such popular songs as ‘Guzara hua zamaana aata nahi dobaara’ from the 1956 release ‘Shirin Farhad’. If I had not read that article I would not have known that I have heard songs tuned by him and enjoyed them.

Today’s song has the child actors Daisy Irani (Mangoo) and Honey Irani (Tingu) lip-syncing to Asha Bhonsle and Sudha Malhotra. This sweet and cute sounding song is penned by Anand Bakshi. The kids Mangoo and Tingu are on a trip in quest of Bhagwan because they have been told that their mothers have gone to “Bhagwan ka ghar”. In the course of their travels they come in contact with a number of people who provide them with diverse answers about where to find Bhagwan. The songs of the movie are set around these incidents. Rather interesting movie, I managed to see part of it in my quest of locating the actors mentioned in the cast.

With this post I wish my favourite singer Asha Bhonsleji on turning a year older. May she have a healthy and lovely life and may we have the pleasure of hearing her for some more years.


Song-Chunnu patang ko kehta hai kite (Zameen Ke Taare)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-S Mohinder

Today’s song is from the film Shiv Bhakta-1955.

Today (6-9-2021) is the last Monday of the Shrawan month in this part of India (Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Andhra pradesh, telangana,Assam, West Bengal and Tripura). Actually, today is also the last day of this month of shrawan. From tomorrow month of Bhadrapad starts and within few days, will be Ganesh Chaturthi- celebrations for the home coming of Lord Ganesh – the Vighna Harta i.e. संकट मोचक (remover of Obstacles).

Film Shiv Bhakt-55 was made by A.V.M. in Madras. By and large, in my opinion, South India has protected, followed and nurtured the Hindu Dharma and Indian traditions as compared to other parts. Culture is practically the same all over India, but in the south one can still see old traditions and cultural activities followed more. This is my personal observation. As a Marketing Professional I had the opportunity to travel throughout India-even smaller towns- for almost 25 years. In these years i have observed and made notes in my diaries from time to time about the specialties of each state and its people.

Mythological films are very popular in South India. Though the number is less now, still more such films are made in the south than any other part of India. As if a tradition, most of the famous and the well known actors from south began their film careers by first doing a Mythological film. M G Ramchandran-MGR, N T Rama Rao-NTR, A Nageshwar Rao-ANR, Anjali Devi, Sivaji ganeshan and many others began with a religious film. Even Dr. Rajkumar of kannada movies started with a film on a Shiv Bhakt – Bedara kannappa-54.

Today’s film Shiv Bhakta-55 is directed by one legend from the south- H L N Simha or H. Laxmi Nar Simha. His name is not known outside the south, but in the south, especially in the Kannada film world, he was a highly respected personality.

H L N Simha was born on 25-7-1904, at a village Madhalli, in Malavalli in Mandya district of Karnataka. Starting as an actor in Dramas, he soon established his own drama company-” Chandrakala Natak Mandali”,along with a fellow actor Mohd. Peer. His first film was Sanskara Nauka-36,in which he was an actor,writer, screenplay writer and its Director too. He is famous for locating and introducing Dr. Rajkumar into films. Raja Sulochana and Pandaribai are also his discoveries. He was credited for making Dr. Rajkumar work in a Telugu film, under his direction-” Kalahasti Mahatmyam”-54. This was Rajkumar’s only film outside Kannada language !

Mr.Simha served the stage and film industry for nearly half a century. His interest in stage began when he was a young lad and wrote his short play, ‘Destiny Rules Humanity’ and brought it on stage with Mohamed Peer, another renowned stage actor of yesteryears. Later he joined the famous Varadachar Drama Company and began playing minor roles.

Appreciating the stage talent of Mr.Simha, Gubbi Veeranna sent him to Bombay, present Mumbai, for training in film direction. After the training, Mr.Simha joined hands with Mr.Gubbi Veeranna as Assistant Director and produced a silent movie, “His Love Affair”. His major stage play, “Samsara Nouka” (the life’s boat) brought him rich encomiums as a top drama producer and director. It was brought on stage during 1933. Breaking tradition of Pouranic plays, “Samasara Nouke” tread a new path. It became the first social play in Kannada touching upon the prevailing social issues and conditions like dowry, unemployment and widow marriage. Simha played the leading role as Maadhu, while Peer Sab as Sundara in this play, which was staged in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu also, besides in several places in Karnataka.

His role as Shahajan in the same title play and as Chenna in ‘Gouthama Buddha’ play brought him more laurels. Then leading stage personalities like T.P.Kailasam, Pandit Taranath and Thirumale Thatacharya Sharma were among those who lauded the acting abilities of Mr.Simha, apart from his abilities as a director of Kannada plays.

Simha later set up his own troupe, “Simha’s Select Artistes” and produced dramas like “Abba Aa Hudugi”, “Bamgarada Bara”, “Madhakari Nayaka”. Those who acted in these dramas included Rathnakar and M.V.Narayana Rao (who spoke at the function on July 27), film script writer Sorot Aswath, and M.V.Rajamma.

The next phase in the life of Mr.Simha was that of a film producer. Then famous film producer of Madras, Mr. K.Rajagopala Chettiar invited Mr. Simha to produce his famous play “Samsara Nouka’ as a film. Taking up the challenge of producing a social Kannada film for the first time, Mr.Simha introduced to the film industry B.R.Panthulu, M.V.Rajamma, Dikki Madhava Rao, Tamash Madhava Rao, Hunsur Krishnamurthy and Hanumantha Rao, who later became leading personalities in the Kannada film world.

When Mr. Simha was looking for a suitable person for his ‘Bedara Kannappa’, he saw Mutthu Raju, now Dr. Rajkumar, who has now become a household name in the film industry, at Nanjangud and gave him the new name in the lead role. This film became a hit and brought Dr.Rajkumar to limelight. Apart from Dr.Rajkumar, Mr.Simha introduced several other famous personalities like G.V.Iyer, Narasimha Raju, Raja Sulochana, Honnappa Bhagavathar, Raja Shankar, B. Hanumanthachar to the film world.

Mr.Simha’s last film was “Anugraha” in 1970, had a song written by his son, Mr.Sheshachandra. But unfortunately, Mr.Simha was not alive to see the film, when it was released. He passed away on July 3, 1972, leaving a legend behind him, which, unfortunately very few remember today.

The cast of the film Shiv Bhakt-55 was Shahu Modak, Padmini, Ragini, Anant Marathe, Pandari bai,Ramachandra sastry and many others. Lyrics were by G S Nepali and the music was given by Chitragupt. One name in the cast is Pandaribai. She is one south indian actress who worked in many Hindi films Her first Hindi film was ‘Bahar’-51, in which evn Vaijayanti mala had debuted.

Pandari Bai (18-9-1928 to 29 January 2003) was an actress of South Indian languages films, mostly in Kannada language during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. She was born on 18-9-1928 at Bhatkal, Karnatak, to Kaveri Bai and Ranga Rao. She is considered Kannada cinema’s first successful heroine. She has acted as both heroine and mother to stalwarts such as Rajkumar, M. G. Ramachandran, Sivaji Ganesan. She was the heroine in Rajkumar’s debut movie Bedara Kannappa and also Sivaji’s debut movie Parasakthi. She has acted in over 1,000 films in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Bai was honoured by Kalaimamani from the Tamil Nadu government.

Pandaribai began her career in acting in plays based on mythological stories before making her film debut in 1943 with the Kannada language film, Vani. She appeared in the 1954 Kannada film Bedara Kannappa opposite Rajkumar. In the film, she played Neela, wife of Kanna (played by Rajkumar), a hunter. She established herself as a lead actress portraying a woman with a “progressive” image assuming the burdens of a feudal patriarchy in films such as Sant Sakhu (1955) and Rayara Sose (1957). In 1959, she appeared in Abba Aa Hudugi, with her sister Mynavathi. The film is considered a landmark in Kannada cinema.
Later in her career Pandari Bai played the mother of stars older than her, most of whom had played the lead with her in her earlier years. She worked in 27 Hindi films. Her first Hindi film was Bahar-52, in which Vaijayantimala made her Debut in Hindi films. Pandharibai’s Hindi pronunciation initially was typically south indian, but over a period, she improved her diction. Her last Hindi film was Time Bomb-1996. However, after her death on 29-1-2003, 3 more delayed Hindi films were released. She came to be known to Hindi audiences mainly due to her role in the film Bhabhi-57. Some of her famous Hindi films were Panchayat-58, Paigham-59, Rakhwala-71, Apna desh-72 and Sampoorna Ramayan-73.

The story of the film was – The story of the film was-
Manimant and Alka are a happy couple in Gandharva Lok. Due to a curse by Indra, they have to take birth on Earth. They are found in the jungle by a Hunter who adopts them and brings them up. When they are young, they are married as Deena and Neela. They live a happy life, but some bad elements in their tribe spread rumours about them and they are thrown out of the village. Deena is very angry and becomes a nastik (atheist) because, for no fault of theirs, god has punished them. Neela however has deep faith in God.

One day when Deena could not get any animal for hunting, tired he sits at a place, which happens to be a Shiva Temple. The priest Kashinath finds out about him and asks him to repeat the mantra “Om Namah Shivay” continuously till he gets an animal. Deena, without knowing anything about it, starts the Japa and after some time his heart is filled with bhakti Rasa and love for God.

The chief Priest Kailashnath is a bogus person. He steals God’s jewellery and gives it to his dancer girlfriend Rani. When the theft comes to light, Deena is accused of the theft as he was in the temple. For the second time he has to suffer for no fault. Deena and Neela continue the Japa of Om Namah shivay and are ready to give the supreme sacrifice with their lives, when Lord Shiva appears before them and takes them to Gandharvalok again.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle.

Today’s song is from the film Toote khilone-1954. The film was made by Pragati Pictures, Bombay. Produced by N.Mehta, it was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. Though this was a social film, Nanabhai Bhatt was known for Mythological and stunt films. His real name was Yeshwant and pet name was Batuk. he directed his first Hindi film-Muqabala-42, using his name-Batuk Bhatt. Nana and Batuk indicate the small one or the younger one. Obviously Nanabhai was the youngest sibling. Incidentally, he was the father of Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, from his second wife-Shirin bai, one time actress.

The Music Director for this film was my favourite and the Melody maker-Chitragupta, with Dilip Dholakia as his usual assistant. Though he always, invariably, made melodious music, more than most other MDs, Lady Luck did not support him wholeheartedly and he remained an MD for generally B and C grade films. He did get a few films from A grade banners like AVM, but it was not enough to stabilise him in that slot.Toote khilone-54 was actually his almost the first Social film after he composed music from 27 earlier films of B and C grades.Lata mangeshkar was very close to Chitragupta. Initially when Lata increased her fees from 100 to 500 rupees per song, Chitragupta told her, ” Lataji, now I will not be able to afford your songs” To this Lata replied,” whenever you need me, just call me. For you this rate will not apply.” And true to her words, she sang for him and never ever charged him. She took whatever he gave her.

Like Chitragupt, his assistant Dilip Dholakia was also not very lucky as a MD. Chitragupta was a very homely and simple fun loving person.They had a group consisting of Lata, Meena, Usha, prem Dhavan and Dilip Dholakia. They used to have a lot of fun at Chitragupt’s home. Chitragupta was a Lalaji (Kayastha in Bihar). Their Non Veg food used to be very good and Lata relished it very much.

In the late 80’s I got introduced to Chitragupta personally, when my best friend’s daughter got married to his elder son. When Chitragupta came to know that I liked their ” Sattu ki Puree”, he invited me to his home for Lunch and we had Sattu Purees, Aloo saag and kheer to our heart’s content !

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle and chorus. Just a few days back, in my write up for the 1000th post, I had said that the film history gets updated from time to time, whenever there is a New Evidence available. For a long time, it was believed that Asha’s first song was from the film Chunaria, under the baton of Master Hansraj Behl. But now it is proved that she sang her first song in the film ” Andhon ki Duniya”-1947, which was released on 10-1-1948. Chunaria -48 was released at the end of November 1948. Raju Bharatan has given this proof on page 287 of his book ” Asha Bhosle-A Musical Biography.”

The cast of the film Toote Khilone-54 was Shekhar (with the real unusual name of Indriya Daman), Purnima, Gulab, Ranjit Kumari, Master Romi, Ginger the Dog and other humans.

The guest artiste was Asha Mathur. She started her film career in a dramatic way. When she was studying in I.T.College in Lucknow, once Kishore Sahu came there as a Judge in their Beauty Contest. Bina Rai stood first, Asha Mathur was Second and one Indira Panchal was third. Kishore Sahu gave a break to all three in his film Kali Ghata-1951. Bina Rai became a well known actress. Indira Panchal chose to leave films and got married into the famous Mahindra family and Asha Mathur had a chequered career.

One of the few educated actresses of her times, Asha Mathur (Sohan Singh in real life) studied up to B.A. Both Asha Mathur and Bina Roy were introduced by Kishore Sahu in Kali Ghata (1951). While Bina Roy was relatively more successful among the two and did some memorable movies including Anarkali (1953) and Taj Mahal (1963), Asha Mathur was relegated to obscure mythical and costume films including Alif Laila (1953), Rajyogi Bharthari (1954), Malka-E-Alam Noorjehan (1954), Amar Kirtan (1954) etc because of her lackluster performances. Her most memorable role was in Poonam (1952), as a suffering wife of Ashok Kumar. She married famous director of her times Mohan Sehgal and left films. She acted only in 18 films. Her last film was Taqdeer-58.

Asha Mathur is a forgotten name today except for the few popular songs picturized on her – Humsai na poocho koi pyar kya hai (Kali Ghata, 1951) and Baanki adayein dekh na ji dekh na(Amanat, 1955).

Ranjeet Kumari’s name was Ranjit Kaur. She was a sikh from Punjab. She acted in only 8 films, from Matwali Meera-40 to her last film Toote Khilone-54. She got married to actor Ramsingh and moved with him to his village in U.P. to become and remain a housewife till her last day.

One of the beauties of old films was Gulab. The First actress from Kashmir to work as a Heroine in Hindi films was GULAB. Her real name was Saraswati Devi. She was born on 10-6-1908 at Jammu. She joined Krishna Film Company in 1924. Her first silent film ‘Krishna kumar’ came in 1925. She worked in 60 silent films. Her last silent film was ‘Dagabaz Dushman’-32, made by East India Film co.Bombay.

Her first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33, made by Vishnu Cinetone. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. She sang one song ‘more preetam jab ghar aaye’ composed bu Kikubhai Yagnik. Then came Baburao Patel’s ‘Bala Joban’-34, Sewa Sadan-34 and Nai Duniya-34 ( Debut film of Rajkumari and Jayant). In this film Gulab sang 2 songs.

Gulab was very beautiful and quite popular in the film industry. Some of her films were Bambai ki sethani-35, Challenge-37, Bharosa-40, Pyas-41, Ek Raat-42, Station master-42, Gaali-44, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Mirza Sahibaan-47, Lahore-49, Badi Behan-49, stage-51, Post Box 999-58, Chhabili-60 etc etc. She acted in 160 films. Her last film seems to be Haqeeqat-64. She also sang 22 songs in 11 films.

The story of film Toote Khilone-54 , as I found on Cineplot, is…..Pragati Pictures’ “Toote Khilone,” premiered at the Roxy Theatre on March 19th, 1954 is pro­duced by N. Mehta and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt and it is a very good film based on a story-idea whose truth and simplicity invest it with an irresistible appeal.

The deeply moving and very human story, sensitively enacted by Shekhar, Purnima, Asha Mathur and little Romi, tells of a little child and his bewildered sorrow in the midst of do­mestic troubles. Written by Akhtar Mirza, the story centers on a young married couple and their little son who dotes on his mother’s cousin, Sheela. When the mother dies of cancer, Sheela stays on to look after the little boy and eventually marries his father. Trouble arrives in the shape of Sheela’s mother who moves into the happy household and builds up in her daughter a resentment against the child. The poisonous insinuations of the older woman turn Sheela into a confused and bitter foster-mother, but kindness and love triumph when the heart-broken child runs away. The film reaches a cleverly presented climax in which Sheela and her husband find the child safe and all three happily return home.

Playing his role with restraint and sym­pathy is Shekhar who puts on a fine perform­ance as the boy’s father. His portrayal of a man who marries a second time so that his child may have a mother is quite flawless. As the young wife, Purnima is superb. Hers is a natural and convincing performance, done with a fine understanding of the role.

A superb performance comes from Romi, as the little boy caught up in a web of circumst­ances he cannot understand. He is utterly lov­able and, together with the wonderful canine star, Ginger, he walks away with the picture’s honors. Gulab turns in another one of her brilliant cameos as the interfering mother-in-law, and Asha Mathur gives an appealing and warm in­terpretation of the tragic role of Shekhar’s first wife.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from the 1982 release “Raaste Pyaar Ke”. It was directed and produced by V B Rajendra Prasad; essentially meaning it was a South Indian production house. It was a remake of a Telugu hit of the ’70s. It had music by Laxmi-Pyare and songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal, SP Balasubramanyam, Kishore Kumar were the singers used.

The movie had six songs of which the folllowing two are on the blog:

Song Date of posting
Ye waqt na kho jaaye 4 June 2012
Tedhe medhe oonche neeche lambe laambe raaste pyaar ke 10 October 2020

The cast had Shabana Azmi-Rekha-Jeetendra as the main protagonists and Utpal Dutt, Shaukat Kaifi (mother of Shyama- Shabana Azmi), Parikshit Sahni, Ashalata (bhaiyya and bhabhi to Mohan- Jeetendra), Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Nadira (uncle and aunt of Mohan and Sohan). Then we had Om Puri (playing a good friend to Gauri- Rekha), Yunus Parvez, Mazhar Khan, Baby Khusboo (niece to Mohan) also in the movie. The post by Nahmji gives a general idea about the film’s story.

The festival season has begun with the arrival of the months of Aashaada, Shraavan and Bhadrapada. We had Raksha Bandhan, Nariyal Purnima and a few other festivals last weekend. This week it is Gokulashtami/ Krishnashtami/ Janmashtami; call it by any name but we are celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna who is said to have been born on the night of Ashtami (eighth day) after the full moon.

Lord Krishna was born when his parents were held captive by his uncle in Mathura. But at the particular hour, when the Lord was born, the guards, miraculously, were fast asleep. This gave time to Vasudev (the lord’s father) time to transport the new-born across the river Yamuna to Gokul to foster parents Nanda and Yashoda. It was raining heavily that night. He is said to have been transported in a wicker basket with the multiheaded serpent- Vasuki shielding the baby from the rain. So the next day after Janmashtami can be described as Gokulashtami. There are many legends of the lord which are related with great relish by generations of devotees. Stories about how he loved to play pranks on the Gopikas of Brindavan and played Raas-Leela with them, ate freshly churned butter with relish, his friendship with Sudama etc. and many more were bed-time stories that grandparents told their grandkids.

Coming back to the celebrations associated with the festival, different regions of the country celebrate it differently. Even the prasad (offerings to the lord) differs region to region. But the offerings will definitely have preparations of Poha (beaten rice), butter and curds. It is said that these three are most loved by the lord. Then there are devotees who keep whole night vigil praying and singing bhajans and distribute prasad around midnight. They bathe and decorate their idols of the lord, dress him up and put the Balgopal in tiny cradles and pull the cradles with ropes of flower garland.

Today’s multi-singer (Asha- Usha- Kishore) song has Mohan playing a KRISHNA with Shyama, Gauri and their friends; there are ropes of flower garland, flute, mor-mukkut etc. That is the reason for me presenting this song today where the words are for lord Krishna and sung for Mohan the bachpan ka friend (childhood friend) of Shyama and Gauri.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 150 # Year -1971#
———————————————–————————

We are celebrating ‘fifty years’ of the year ‘1971’, and discussing the movies released during that year and their songs.

In one of my earlier post I had mentioned the details of movies released from 01st January’1971 to 30th April’1971.

Today we look at the movies released between 01st May’1971 to 31st August’1971.

Here is the list: –

33 Tere Mere Sapne Vijay Anand 13.05.1971 Y ippeeee’ed
34 Tulasi Vivaah Chandrakant 22.07.1971 3/14 Songs posted

We can see from the above table that three movies viz. ‘Baghaawat’, ‘Dakoo Maan Singh’, and ‘Maayaa Baazaar’ have not yet made their debuts on the blog.

The songs from these three movies seem to be unavailable as of now (as I could not find them). One movie ‘Hulchal’ had no songs in it. That gives us thirty movies from the total of thirty-four movies which have been represented on the blog.

Out of these thirty movies exactly half numbers i.e., fifteen movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, eleven movies from this period 01.05.1971 to 31.08.1971 still have a few songs left to be covered. Out of these eleven movies I have presented songs from ‘Badnaam Basti’, ‘Bahke Kadam’, ‘Brahmaa Vishnu Mahesh’, ‘Iraadaa’ and ‘Shaan E Khuda’.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan’. I had not listened to the songs from this movie earlier and even the name was new to me when I came across it first time. I listened to the today’s song while preparation of this post and liked the song too.

“Puraani Pehchaan-1971” was directed by Kewal Mishra for ‘Durga Films, Bombay’.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Tanuja, Madan Puri, Bela Bose, Shammi, B.B. Bhalla, Tarun Bose, Dhanraj, Dilip Dutt, Johny Whisky, Sangeeta, Rafia Sultana, and others.

This movie had six songs composed by Music Director Bhushan and lyrics for all songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.

Following is the details of the songs of this movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Bachpan ka saath chhoota hai jaise ki khwaab toota hai Asha Bhonsle, chorus
02 Murli naa chhed Kaanha Asha Bhonsle
03 Ye naa hamse poochhiye mil gayaa hai kya hamen Mohd Rafi,Asha Bhonsle 24.12.2012
04 Aye jaan e bahaaraan rooh e chaman Mohd Rafi 27.01.2016
05 Aa aa, aa jaa, mujhe neend aa gayi thhi, kisi dard ne jagaaya Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today
06 Aaj ki raat nahin dil ko jalaane ke liye Asha Bhonsle

Geet Kosh-V mentions that the title for this movie was changed later from ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ which was its initial title given. Also, the 78 RPM records for the soundtracks of this movie were released by this name – ‘Jab Jab Raat Wo Aayee’ only.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1971.

Two songs from this movie ‘Puraani Pehchaan-1971’ have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is Tanuja lip syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Also see in the picturization of this song are Sanjeev Kumar, Bela Bose, Madan Puri and others.

This song seems to be a ‘haunting’ song in the movie. I have not watched this movie, so can’t say much about it.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

The picturization of this song reminds us of similar other songs in Hindi movies, e.g., ‘rulaa ke gayaa sapnaa mera’ from ‘Jewel Thief-1967’ etc. But we do not exactly know in what context the today’s song happens.

However, we can listen and enjoy the today’s song …

As mentioned above singer for today’s song is Asha Bhonsle and lyrics are by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Music is composed by Bhushan.


Song-Mujhe neend aa gayi thhi (Puraani Pehchaan)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Bhushan

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 149 # Qawwalis – 13 #
———————————————–

Today’s song – a qawwali – is from the 1979 movie “Aatish”. Memories of this qawwaali were revived when I was listening to a daily programme on Vividh Bharati. I had earlier shared another song from the same movie. That song too was a result of memories coming alive when I listened to that song on Vividh Bharati. That was in March-2021, and the song was Main nehlaa thhi bas nehlaa ….

When I listened to this ‘qawwali’ I liked it because of its ‘catchy’ tune. The picturisation of this ‘qawwali’ suggests that it takes place in the movie in the ‘villain’s den’ where Neetu Singh is in double role. One of the two disguised persons trying to help is Jeetendra I guess. Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Mukri, Dheeraj Kumar, Madan Puri, Master Raju, and many others.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saxena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan, and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

05 Babu manejara ve he babu, manejara ve Lata, Rafi, Chorus

Today’s qawwali song is only the third such song composed by Ravindra Jain. We have as many as 171 qawwali songs already posted in the blog. I have tried to compile some statistics with respect to Lyricists, Composers and Years of the movies of these qawwali songs posted on the blog.

oh qayaamat hai qayaamat
zaraa sabr karo haq donon ke
zaraa sabr karo haq donon ke
donon ko dilaa kar jaayenge

tumhi pe aajmaayaa

jin guruon ke aise chele hon

wo to naam kamaa kar jaayenge

tum ko bhi dikhaa kar jaayenge

tere chaahnewaale aaye hain

Hullo Atuldom

“Biwi Aur Makaan” (1966) had songs written by Gulzar, which were tuned by Hemant Kumar. It had 10 or 11 songs that were in the voices of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar, Mohd. Rafi etc. The movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and produced by Hemant Kumar. Dialogues (the crux of any comedy movie) were by Rajinder Singh Bedi. Mehmood and Biswajeet headed a cast which also had Kalpana, Shabnam, Padma Khanna, Keshto Mukherjee, Bipin Gupta, Ashish Kumar etc.

The movie was the remake of a Bengali film “Joy Maa Kali Boarding” and an inspiration for the Marathi hit of the ’80s ‘Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi”. In Telugu it was made as “Chitram Bhalare Vichitram”. It has been made in Kannada, Tamil and the story was so inspiring that it had remakes in Bengali in 2017, Punjabi 2014 and Hindi 2009.

The story was of four bachelors who migrate from their villages to the big city. While attempting to access accomodation, they are repeatedly told that rooms will only be rented to married couples, not to bachelors. Frustrated at this, two of them disguise themselves as women, and pose as wives for the other two males. They are able to secure accommodation with the Mishra family. Complications arise when the two “women” fall in love with Mishra’s two lovely daughters – with results that can only be described as hilarious. Keshto Mukherjee’s act ad facial expression as ‘Badi Bahu’ and Biswajeet as the beautiful ‘Choti Bahu’ should be seen at least once. Of course, it was Mehmood’s timing that was the highlight of the film.

The following three songs from the movie are already on the blog:

Song Date of post Post by
Dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi 23 June 2009 (by Atulji)
Jaane kahaan dekha hai 2 June 2014 (by Sudhirji)
Mujhe mohabbat ho gayi hai 22 December 2016 (by Maheshji)

I had commented to the song “dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi” in 2017 after seeing the Marathi version of this movie about how Ashok Saraf matched Mehmood (imho) and Sachin looked as pretty as Biswajeet in the guise of a lady.

We are having this song today to wish the poet-lyricist-author-director- producer- screenwriter Sampooran Singh Kalra a.k.a Gulzar on turning a year older. He was born in 1934 in Dina of Jhelum district which is in present day Pakistan. He is married to actress Rakhee and has a daughter Meghana who is also a director of movies like ‘Filhaal’, ‘Raazi’, Chhapaak’ and such other non-run-of-the-mill movies.

Gulzar (who initially worked under the name Gulzar Deenvi) started his music career with SD Burman in the 1963 classic ‘Bandini’ and worked with many music directors like Salil Chowdhury, Vishal Bhardwaj, A.R. Rehman etc. Can one forget the songs that his pairing with RD Burman gave lovers of Bollywood music. He is a winner of the Padma Bhushan, Sahitya Academy award and Dadasaheb Phalke award. He is a 5 time National award, one Academy award (Oscars) and Grammy too in addition to innumerable Filmfare awards.

It would be a ‘chota munh aur badi baat’ (holding a candle to the sun) kind of situation if I attempt writing anything on such an accomplished personality. So, let us get to today’s song and Just wish our favourite writer/ lyricist/ producer/ director/ screenwriter/ poet a healthy and peaceful time ahead.

Song-Aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin (Biwi Aur Makaan)(1966) Singers-Usha Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics(Based on Audio link)

aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
na main soyi na jaagi sataao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

kaun thha
kaisa thha
bataao naa
koi anjaan si ek pehchaan thhi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
koi anjaan si ek pehchhan thi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
na main boli
na main jaagi
sirf saanson ki awaaz aati rahi
ek aaghosh mein kaid thhi raat bhar
lo bata toh diya sataao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
na jali main
na bujhi main
mere honthon pe saawan baraste rahe
shokh malta raha sediyaan raat bhar
lo bata toh diya ab sataao nahin
jaao jaao hamein yoon banaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupaao nahin

Hullo Atuldom

July 31st. Important date for lovers of Bollywood sangeet. This date-41 years ago- music lovers lost a singer who was a wonderful human being. He went by the name Mohammad Rafi.

We used to have pages and pages written about the greatness of this legend’s voice, singing style, kind-heartedness, etc in the pre-internet era. Then various people took up blogging as a passion and any blog on Bollywood and its music will definitely have atleast a few posts on this great singer. AM I COMPLAINING? NO NOT AT ALL. Because as our very own Rajaji has said in many of his posts ‘one cannot tire of writing or reading about Rafisaab and his persona’.

Similarly, the music channels on satellite television and FM radio will try to outdo each other in playing popular songs sung by Rafisaab. Again, I am stating a statement of fact and not complaining. Because any fan of Bollywood music can never tire of hearing and humming songs sung by this legend who had a smooth and soothing voice.

I have never tried making a personal list of favourite Rafi-songs as I fear that I might miss out on some gem which I have always loved. Maybe my list will start with ‘yaahhooo’, or ‘tel maalish’ on one day and another day may see me start listening from ‘chaand mera dil’ or ‘chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko’. Probably I may add a less heard song like ‘mann mora baawra’, ‘tumne mujhe dekha’, ‘hai duniya usiki zamaana usika’ and by the time I finish listening to all the songs in the list I may have reached ‘kaan mein jhumka taal pe thumka’ and ‘kitna pyaara vaada’ or ‘vaada karle saajna’ with a few soulful numbers in between. I think I should also clarify that the songs that I have mentioned are only a sample of the kind of songs I love to hear and not an exhaustive list.

Now I was looking for a song that would also help me wish a yesteryear actress on turning 74. She was born just as India was gaining Independence from the British rule. She was born in Mumbai to parents of Irani origin. Her sister (Malika) also was an actress and married to Randhawa (brother of Dara Singh); I think these are hints that point towards Mumtaz Askari famous as Mumtaz. Mumtaz’s journey in the movie industry was a tough one starting as a child in 1958, going on to teenage roles in early 60s. As an adult her first role in an A-grade movie was in O P Ralhan’s ‘Gehra Daag’ where she played one of Rajendra Kumar’s sister. Years later, when she was a commercially successful heroine, she was cast as Rajendra Kumar’s heroine in “Taangewala” which released in 1972.

“Taangewala” was a Dimple Films’ presentation and directed by Naresh Kumar meaning it was Rajendra Kumar’s home production. It had songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and tuned by Naushad. Mohd. Rafi, Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle and Lata mangeshkar were the playback singers used. The cast included Sujit Kumar, Bhagwan, Kanhaiyalal, Mohan Choti, Kumud Chuggani, I S Johar, Kaamini Kaushal Mehmood Jr. in addition to Mumtaz and Rajendra Kumar.

It had about seven songs of which the blog has four. Today we shall have the fifth one. Unfortunately I have not seen the movie or been able to lay my hands on a video link. My guess is this Asha- Rafi duet is picturised on the lead pair.

Here is Wishing Mumtaz health and happiness (heard that she is a Cancer survivor) and remembering the one and only Rafisaab who could do justice to any song and was sincere towards every composition that he sang making every song a gem.

This should be Rafi- Asha Bhonsle duet number 547.


Song-Aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar (Taangewaala)(1972) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
saajan tere nainon se jab naina hue chaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

din ye judaai ka re sahaa nahin jaaye
raaton ko akele hamse rahaa nahin jaaye
din ye judaai ka re sahaa nahin jaaye
o raaton ko akele hamse rahaa nahin jaaye
jaane kab
jaane kab sunegi tu dil ki pukaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
o aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar

tere bina bhatke yeh chadhti jawaani
paagal meri bindiya paayaliya deewaani
o tere bina bhatke yeh chadhti jawaani
paagal meri bindiya paayaliya deewaani
aisi bhi kya
arre aisi bhi kya aayi hai jawaani pe bahaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar
saajan tere nainon se jab naina huye chaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ab to leke chal kahin saathi mere mann ke
chal mere angana dulhan meri ban ke
ho ab to leke chal kahin saathi mere mann ke
o chal mere angana dulhan meri ban ke
doli leke ae ae
doli leke aaja re tu kal mere dwaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ki phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
kaleje mein
dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ke phansi pe latke jiyara hamaar

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Today 18th July’2021 is the ninth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Rajesh Khanna (29 December 1942- 18 July 2012). He passed away on 18th July’2012 in Mumbai.

On this occasion we pay our tributes to him and remember him with a song from one of his movies.

In this episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon – 8’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies of the year ‘1981’. In the year 1981 following six movies of Rajesh Khanna were released (including Naseeb* where he had a friendly appearance).

SNo Movie Title Director Passed by Censor Board on
01 Dard Ambarish Sangal 24.07.1981
02 Dhanwan Surendra Mohan 01.07.1981
03 Dil-E-Naadaan C.V. Sridhar 11.12.1981
04 Fifty-Fifty Shomu Mukherji 15.10.1981
05 Naseeb** Manmohan Desai 17.03.1981
06 Qudarat Chetan Anand 27.02.1981

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 6’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and challenging himself in his ‘second innings’. In ‘1981’ he further capitalizes on the success of his movies like ‘Amardeep-1979’,’Thodisi Bewafaai-1980’, and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose-1980’, ‘Phir Wohi Raat-1980’, and ‘Bandish-1980’.

In ‘1981’ he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil E Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’ that had moderate to decent success at the box office and they received critical acclaim.

That all happened forty years ago !

If we go back even further by another ten years, that takes us to ‘1971’. 1971 is behind us by fifty years from now, viz half a century !

That was when Rajesh Khanna ‘era’ was at its zenith. Here is the list of Rajesh Khanna movies released in the year ‘1971’.

(Rajesh Khanna movies – 1971)

SNo Movie Title Director Passed by Censor Board
01 Amar Prem Shakti Samanta 27.11.1971
02 Andaz* Ramesh Sippy 23.04.1971
03 Badnaam Farishte** Qamar Narvi 05.11.1971
04 Chhoti Bahu K.B. Tilak 25.05.1971
05 Dushman Dulal Guha 31.12.1971
06 Guddi** Hrishikesh Mukherjee 14.09.1971

08 Maryaadaa Arvind Sen 12.05.1971
09 Mehboob Ki Mehandi H.S. Rawail 30.01.1971

(*guest appearance, ** friendly/special appearance)

We notice that all the above movies had great music as was the norm for Kaka movies.

Coming back to today’s song it is from the movie ‘1981’ movie ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

From the movies of Rajesh Khanna released in 1981 the movies ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwaan’, ‘Dil E Naadaan’, and ‘Qudrat’ have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. So, we only have this movie ‘Fifty-Fifty’ left to pick a Rajesh Khanna song from.

Tina Munim was the heroine of Rajesh Khanna in this movie, which was their first movie together. It laid the foundation for their further professional and personal chemistry on-screen and off-screen. That way this movie has a special place in the film career of Rajesh Khanna. That is the reason why I have selected a song from this movie for today’s presentation.

‘Fifty-Fifty’ was directed by Shomu Mukherji who also the producer of this movie.

This movie’s star-cast included Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Kader Khan, Ranjeet, Om Shivpuri, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherjee, Anita Guha, Poornima, P. Jairaj, Sundar Taneja, C.S. Dubey, Jankidas, Shaikh, V. Malhotra, Roopesh Kumar, Shashi Kiran, Anu Dhawan, Johny Whisky, Arvind, Miss Nikki, Kumar, Amid, Jagdeep, Mushtaq, Maruti, Bhagwan Dada, Kamrana, Amar Nath, Mangal Singh, Shyam, Vikram Sharma, Miss Neelu, Master Sakha, Baby Pinky, Teerath and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1981.

“Fifty-Fifty” had seven songs including one three-part song. Lyrics for all the songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

In today’s song Rajesh Khanna is lip-syncing in the voice of Amit Kumar while Tina Munim lip-syncs in the voice of Asha Bhonsle.

Some other artists too can be seen in the picturisation of this Marathi folk dance song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song where Kaka can be seen performing with trademark jigs. 😊
