————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 7 February 2013, six songs from six different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7460 Phulbagiya mein bulbul boley Raani Roopmati (1959) Movie YIPPEED by now

7465 Ye khilti kali koi le Shin Shinaaki Boobbla Boo (1952) Movie YIPPEED by now

We observe that four movies (out of six) whose songs were covered in the blog on this date ten years ago (on 7 February 2023) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with two movies that are unYIPPEED and therefore eligible for Blog Ten YEar CHallenge today (7 February 2023).

“Nawab Sirajudaula”(1967) is the first of two BTYC eligible movies today. This movie was produced and directed by Ramchandra Thakur for Lok Bharati, Bombay. The movie had Bharat Bhushan, Kalpana(aka Kalpana Mohan), Manhar Desai, Johny Walker, Naseeb Banu, Daisy Irani, Moti Sagar, David, B.M.Vyas, P.Kailash, Rajan Haksar, Murad, S.Nazir, Chandrima Bhaduri, Dalpat, Narbada Shankar, Majnu etc in it.

“Nawab Sirajudaula”(1967) had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered so far.

Here is the third song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Only audio of the song is available. It sounds like a mujra song to me. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Gawaah-1979’ which is making its debut on the blog with this song.
Though a recent movie by the standards of this blog this seems to be an obscure movie of its time. None of its video is available on the internet and so far audio is also available for one song only.

I do not remember to have heard or read about this movie in the past. It is only through HFGK that I become aware of this movie from the ‘seventies’.

“Gawaah-1979” was directed by A. Salaam for ‘New Era Movies’.

It had Samit, Roohi, Ajit, Bobby, Veena, Meena T., Sujit Kumar (in friendly appearance), Madan Puri, Heeralal, Bela Bose, Asit Sen, Kamal Kapoor, Satyen Kappu, Kundan, Habib, Mukri, Bhagwan, Sundar, Mohan Choti, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Rajan Haksar, Mirza Musharraf, Babli, Rajani Bala, Sardar Mouji Singh, Hashmat and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.09.1979.

“Gawaah-1979” has three songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri(two songs) and Tabish Sultanpuri (one song).

Music for this movie was composed by Jay Kumar Parte.

Today (28 January 2023) is the 16th remembrance day of O P Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). He ruled the roost in HFM during 1950s and 1960s, and that too on his own terms. Imagine not using the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in his songs and still managing to create great songs. Curiously, he found his playback singer of choice in Lata Mangeshkar’s family itself, in the form of her younger sinter Asha Bhonsle. There is no doubt that it was O P Nayyar who offered Asha Bhonsle the opportunity to become a playback singer second only to her illustrious elder sister.

This association of Asha Bhonsle and O P Nayyar lasted nearly two years before they had an acrimonious break up.

We as music lovers are more interested in music and less on the personal affairs of those creating them. As far as O P Nayyar is concerned, he worked in 73 movies (give or take a few). As many as 50 of his movies, including almost all of his movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED in the blog. The few unYIPPEED movies of those decades are unYIPPEED because the balance songs are unavailable.

So we have to movies in the later part of O P Nayyar’s career, if we want to discuss songs composed by him.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) is one of his less known movie. It was produced and directed by Kamran, a B grade movie maker (Father of Farah and Sajid Khan) for Rainbow Films, Bombay. The movie had Dev Mukherji, Nandita Bose (making debut), Jalal Agha, Rupesh Kumar, Anwar Ali, Nikita, Tiwari, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Anjum, Birbal, Maruti, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begum, Shefali, Raj Rani, Mehboob, Jayshree T etc in it.

The movie flopped and so the songs of this movie had no change to get popular because they were not heard by most music lovers.

“Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog.

As a tribute of O P Nayyar, here is the second sonng from “Aisa Bhi Hota Hai”(1971) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P nayyar of course.

It is a sweet song to listen to. The song sounds like the songs she sang under O P Nayyar’s baton during those years.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This song is the 500th song of OP Nayyar in the blog as a music director. This is the final century of O P Nayyar seeing that O P Nayyar composed around 570 songs in all. That means we are within striking distance of covering all available O P Nayyar compositions in the blog.

We take this oppotunity to play our tribute to the legendary music director O P Nayyar.


Song-Chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle (Aisa Bhi Hota Hai)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

ek hansi iski hai saari duniya meri
ek muskaan sau saal ki zindagi
mujhko duniya mein ab aur kya chaahiye
mil gayi hai zamaane ki saari khushi
maine barson jo dekha thha sapna
aaj kismat se poora hua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

har ghadi har samay muskuraata hua
phool sa bachpana meri baahon mein ho
laal mera bada hoke jaaye jahaan
kaamyaabi sada iski raahon mein ho
door har dum rahe gham ke saye
ye hamesha hi meri dua hai
apne chhote se ghar mein ujaala
ab sada ke liye ho gaya hai
chaand raaton ko nikle na nikle
din mein sooraj na chamke to kya hai
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla
lalalalla
lalalarlala
lalalalla

Govind Nihalani joined Hindi film industry as a Cinematographer in 1974. In the initial period, he mainly worked with Shyam Benegal as a Cinematographer, both for his documentary and feature films. In 1980, he turned director and directed some socially relevant films such as ‘Aakrosh’ (1980), Vijeta (1982), ‘Ardha Satya’ (1983), ‘Aghaat’ (1985), ‘Drishti’ (1990), ‘Drohkaal’ (1994), ‘Hazaar Chauraasi Ki Maa’ (1998). Almost all his films, both as a Cinematographer and the Director were critically acclaimed.

With ‘Thakshak’ (1999), Govind Nihalani made his first attempt (and probably the last) in producing and directing a commercial genre of Hindi film, also called ‘the mainstream Bollywood’ film. In his interview held sometime in December 1999 which was published on the ‘Rediff On The Net’, Govind Nihalani revealed that Ajay Devgan was keen to work with him and he had a script ready to fit the role for him. Manmohan Shetty, who had produced some of Govind Nihalani offbeat films, was requesting him to make a film for the wider audience also. The eagerness of Ajay Devgan to work with him, getting Manmohan Shetty to finance the film and an opportunity to experiment with a different genre of film, prompted him to make ‘Thakshak’ (1999). Ajay Devgan and Tabu were the lead pair with Amrish Puri, Rahul Bose, Govind Namdev, Nethra Raghuraman, A K Hangal, Ravi Patwardhan, Uttara Baokar etc. in supporting roles.

As revealed by Govind Nihalani in a separate interview, producing and directing a commercial film was a new experience for him. His earlier films were made with a small budget, and he did not have the pressure of box office success. Hence, he made his earlier films without interference from any quarters. While making ‘Thakshak’, though he did not have any problem with his main actors, there were pressures from the distributors to make some changes in the script of the film with their own suggestions when they were shown the rushes of the film. That the film took 2 years to complete (as against his earlier films which he completed in less than one year) would indicate that he had to compromise on his script which Govind Nihalani had originally written.

I had not watched the film when it was released. In fact, I did not have any idea about the story of the film. The only thing I knew about the film at that time was a dance song picturised on Tabu which I liked and therefore had watched the song on TV music channels a few times. Sometime back, that dance song came back to my mind and I refreshed my memory by watching the video clip of the song. I liked the song so much that I marked in my mind to write an article on this song for the Blog. Subsequently, I also watched the film on You Tube.

‘Thakshak’ (1999) is a romantic crime thriller. The story of the film was in keeping with the socio-political situations in the country, particularly in Mumbai of Builders-Underworlds-politicians nexus. Ishaan (Ajay Devgan), is the son of Nahar Singh (Amrish Puri), the partner in the real estate business of Jodha Bhai (Ravi Patwardhan) who in reality is a gangster. Sunny (Rahul Bose), the grandson of Jodha Bhai and Ishaan are great friends. But their temperament is quite different. Sunny believes that the power flows from the barrel of a gun. Ishaan reminds him that that the one who thrives on the power of gun can also get killed by the same gun. The subtle temperament of Ishaan is further soften when he meets his lady love Suman (Tabu). The influence of Suman on Ishaan turns him to shed the violent life of the underworld to the decent life of a common man. But Ishaan is in dilemma as his oath of allegiance to Sunny to remain with him as his partner in crime and his conscious telling him to follow the life like a common man like his idealistic romantic partner, Suman. A further complications in these relationship – Ishaan and Sunny and Ishaan and Suman develops when Suman is the witness to the crime committed by Sunny in killing the owner of an old house to grab the plot where Ishaan is the partner in the crime. How the emerging situations themselves force Ishaan to come out of his moral obligations toward Sunny and follow the path of humanity is the finale of the film.

Now my 2 cents on the film. The story of a criminal trying to live a decent life like a common man has been tried in Hindi films many time. But in ‘Thakshak’, Govind Nihalani has given somewhat different treatment in that he has projected Ishaan caught in a moral dilemma of protecting his gangster friend, Sunny against whom his lady love, Suman has testified. The emotional upheaval Ishaan goes through has been well presented. All the three main actors – Ajay Devgan, Tabu and Rahul Bose have performed very well. However, the momentum of the story slows down due to 8 songs in the film most of which do not fit into the story of the film. Also, in my view, there was no need for the role of Nethra Raghuraman as a night club dancer on whom 2 songs have been picturised. I guess these are the additions which may have been suggested by the distributors. I feel that the story, screenplay, and dialogues with the exclusions of some songs and some unwarranted scenes would have turned the film into an absorbing thriller. Nonetheless, the film is interesting to watch at least once.

‘Thakshak’ (1999) has 8 songs, written by Mehboob (6) Sukhwinder Singh (1) and Sukhwinder Singh-Tejpal Kaur (1) which were set to music by A R Rahman. None of the songs has been represented on the Blog. I present the first song to appear on the Blog which is my most favourite song from the film. The song is ‘mujhe rang de range de mujhe rang de’ which is a semi-classical dance song. At the same time, the music composition sounds like that of a qawwali song.

The song is written by Sukhwinder Singh jointly with Tejpal Kaur and rendered by Asha Bhosle. There are some Punjabi words in the lyrics.

There is an interesting trivia as to how Sukhwinder Singh got to write this song as well as one more song for the film. He had come to ‘Chennai to meet A R Rahman for the first time. He was composing tunes for ‘Thakshak’ (1999). A R Rahman asked him whether he can write songs. Sukhwinder Singh promptly nodded and wrote the song under discussion. When Rahman asked him to pen one more song, Sukhwinder Singh told him that he has come to get some singing assignments from him. Rahman kept his promise and gave him to sing chal chhainyya chhainyya chhainyya chhainyya from ‘Dil Se’ (1998).[Source: The Asian Age, May 16, 2016].

While listening to this song, I felt that there is some spiritual feel in the opening lines of the songs as it is repeated several times. I remembered that Hazrat Amir Khusrow had written a Sufi Kalam, ‘mohe apne hi rang mein rang de’. This has become inspiration for some lyricists of Hindi films to include this spiritual element. One example is the song, o rangrez, tere rang dariya mein from ‘Bhaag Milka Bhaag’ (2013).

According to Sukaina Nagpal, the song was choreographed by her mother, Saroj Khan. [Source: Rediff interview appeared on July 3, 2020]. It is a 7+ minutes dance song picturised on Tabu who is not a trained dancer. Yet, she has performed the dance gracefully. The confidence of the Choreographer in the dancing ability of Tabu can be judged from the fact that she was covered in mid-shot frame to capture her hand gestures, expressions, and steps most of the time. Some of her shots were of longer durations, which is possible only when it is picturised on a trained dancer. Note Tabu’s expression and hand gestures at 5:36-5:42 in line with the lyrics. Probably, she must have toiled a lot during the rehearsals. All the supportive dancers did very well in synchronization of dancing steps as well as expressions and gestures. For example, watch 3:52 – 4:22 of the video clip. This is, in my view, one of the best dances choreographed by Saroj Khan in Hindi films.

I think after S D Burman, A R Rahman is one among the current music directors who is expert in picking the right playback singer suitable to his style of songs. In this film, he has used Hema Sardesai, Sujata Trivedi, and Alisha Chinoy among female playback singers for other songs. It is said that A R Rahman selects a playback singer only after he has composed the tune and the music for a song. His musical compositions decide the playback singer. For the song under discussion, he has used Asha Bhosle’s voice. And it turned out to be the right choice. Note how Asha Bhosle takes the octave leap from lower to higher pitch effortlessly. Towards the end of the song, her aalaaps are mesmerising. The song ends with Tabu going into a trance true of a Sufi singing.

Lastly, I must make a special mention of the flute interlude in the song from 2:58 to 3:34. I guess, it was played by Flautist, Naveen Kumar who has been continuously associated with A R Rahman since ‘Roja’ (1992) until he moved to Mumbai in 2003. Thereafter, Naveen Kumar played flute for A R Rahman, albeit occasionally.

I can watch the video clip of this song umpteen time because all those who are associated with song have done exceedingly well to make it a classic dance song.

Hullo Atuldom

Wishing everyone of us a Very Happy Republic Day.

गणतंत्र दिवस की शुभकामनायें

This was my post last year for the occasion. & in that post I had lamented about ignorance among many citizens regarding the significance of 26th January and why it was chosen to be Republic Day.

“The 308 members of the Constituent Assembly, of thenewly Independent India, signed hand-written copies (in Hindi and English) of the Constitution of India on 24th January 1950 after much deliberation and some changes. The Constitution was adopted and came into effect throughout the country from 26th January 1950. Dr. Rajendra Prasad started his tenure as first President of India and the Constituent Assembly became the Parliament of India.

That makes January 26th 2023 India’s 73rd Republic Day”.

(I don’t mind making the above paragraph part of my posts every time I write for 26th January)

There are certain events attached with the Republic Day celebrations which I love to see, when shown live on Television and in repeat if I have missed the live telecast.

I like the way Doordarshan shows a brief history about how we attained Independence, how the Constituent Assembly was setup, and the signing of the Constitution itself. This is normally followed by the live telecast rom New Delhi’s India Gate where the Prime Ministers of India pay homage at the Amar Jawaan Jyoti which is at India Gate, to the departed soldiers; I love the serene atmosphere around the whole scene, the two-minute silence etc. Then the Prime Minister drives down Rajpath towards the saluting base and awaits the arrival of the President Of India who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Armed Forces. The National Flag is Unfurled, National Anthem is played, Awards for exemplary bravery on the warfront are conferred to recipients and then the Parade commences showcasing India’s Defence capabilities, Cultural and Social Heritage. The Armed Forces participate in the March Past accompanied by their bands; plus there are the NCC, Bharat Scouts & Guides, school children and Tableaus from the various states and Government agencies forming the second part of the parade. The climax of the parade is the Brilliant Fly-past by the Indian Air Force- showing us formations, showering Flower petals on Rajpath etc.

The event comes to a close with the singing of Jana-Gana-Mana. and the Presidential Cavalcade departs followed by the Prime Minister and other dignitaries. I am always amazed by the Horses that form the President’s Bodyguards- their heads are still when the National Anthem is on. The events of the Republic Day come to a close with the Beating the Retreat ceremony on 29th January, this is another charming event. Specially how the Marching soldiers walk back into the sunset and darkness at the end of the parade and the Lights come on at North Block, South Block and Parliament House. This event is held at Vijay Chowk and has trumpeters, buglers, pipe & drum bands of the three-wings of the Armed Forces.

A few changes have taken place in the last few years- Rajpath has been renamed as Kartavya Path and the Amar Jawaan Jyoti from India Gate has been shifted and merged with the eternal flame at the National War Memorial which is close by.

It is my tiny wish to be able to witness the events live atleast once in my life, but then as my dear family has always said we may not be able to get a close enough seat and see things as clearly. True, I don’t disagree. It is similar to saying that when we see a cricket match in a stadium we may not be able to see all the madness in all the stands of the stadium like we see on TV. But then the charged atmosphere at any venue cannot be felt in the TV, correct or not? I can say this based on my experiences gained at the various music concerts that I have attended over the last few years.

Let us get back to 26th January.

There are a few songs that are played on these National days- Saare Jahan Se Achcha, Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite hymn ‘Vaishnava Janato’ and Jhanda Ooncha rahe hamara- by the bands in the parades.

We all know that ‘Saare Jahaan Se Achcha’ was written by Allama Mohammad Iqbal in 1904. We know that Jana Gana Mana was by Gurdev Rabindranath Tagore. Vande Maatram was by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.

But, personally, I was unaware about the other most important song that we are taught as kids in school- Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Hamaara. Only yesterday I came across a post in our blog by (who else) Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji. It enlightened me to the fact this was first used in a film in 1938 (any wonder that I like to call him Guruji).

What set me on this quest was a video that I saw recently on TV where I saw Rajnikanth accompanied by Sridevi, Swapna, A K Hangal and I think I spied Macmohan, walking along the lanes of some hilly region, in company of some locals, with the Tricolour in their hands and singing “Jhanda Ooncha Rahe Humara”. On further digging I came to know that it was from the 1991 released, Anil Sharma directed “Farishtay”. It was sung by Shabbir Kumar and the female version has Asha Bhonsle’s voice. Bappi Lahiri is the music composer. Lyrics have been credited to Shyamlal Gupta Parshad.

I looked up about the lyricist and this is what I found- Shyamlal Gupta Parshad belonged to Kanpur and had vowed to walk barefoot till India got freedom from the British rule. Shyamlal Gupta was born as the third child to Vishveshwar Parshad and Kaushalya Devi on September 9, 1896. He penned this song on March 4, 1924.

His song was recognised as the flag song by the All India Congress Committee and was sung for the first time on Jallianwala Baug Diwas 0n 13th April 1924; at Phoolbagh Kanpur in the presence of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Sarojini Naidu sung it in 1938 at the Haripura Session of the Congress where Mahatma Gandhi’s was present.

All this and more on Syamlal Gupta Prashad his family and there current status is available in this article which was the source from which I wrote the above paragraph.

Let us now hear the song from Farishtay (I would love to know if the movie makers have been true to what Shyamlal Gupta Parshad wrote all those years ago). But I can feel that the basic tune is same as the one that was used in the 1938 ‘Fearless Nadia’ film.

Let the us all say “Hum sab bhartiya hain”, “Saare Jahaan se achcha hindustan humara”, ‘Jhanda Ooncha rahe humara” and say with pride
Vande Maatram
Jai Hind
Happy Republic day to Indians

Blog Day :

5305 Post No. : 17382

Today is the 74th Republic Day of India, i.e. Bharat. I congratulate all Atulites on this occasion. हार्दिक बधाई और अभिनंदन ।

Have you ever wondered why we have both Independence Day and Republic Day – 2 days of national celebrations ? How many of us really know the difference between these two days ? Let me explain….

After a long British rule, India became an Independent Nation on 15 th August 1947. The British handed over reins of the country to the people of India ( but not before promoting hatred and dividing the Akhand Bharat into 2 Nations on the basis of Religions). When we became Independent, we did not adopt any form of Government and India continued to take Queen Elizabeth as its head of country and also continued following the British Constitution, as we did not have our own Constitution by then. India still had a Governor General appointed by the British Government, of course on the advice of the Government of the newly formed Independent Dominion of India from 21-6-1948 to 26-1-1950. C. RajGopalachary took over as India’s first native Governor General of the Dominion of India from 21-6-1948 onwards.

After independence, India started work on its own new Constitution from 29-8-1947 to 26-11-1949. The total period was 2 years 11 months and 18 days, including 141 days for final drafting. The Constitution Committee was presided by Dr. B. R. Ambedkar and it had 6 other members, namely K. M. Munshi, Mohd. Saadullah, A. K. Iyer, G. S. Ayyangar, N. Madhav Rao ( replacing B. L. Mittar who resigned due to ill health) and D. P. Khetan.

India accepted the new Constitution on 26-1-1950 declaring the nation as the Democratic Republic of India. From 15-8-1947 to 26-1-1950, the head of the country was the Prime Minister but from 26-1-1950, the Head of the country is the President of India. The post of Governor General was abolished and the British rule ended finally ! So, on Independence day, India came from the hands of the British to our hands ( actually it came to the hands of the ruling Congress party ) and on Republic Day India became a form of Government ruled by the Representatives of the people of India.

One more interesting thing which many people are not aware of. On the 15 th August 1947,being the head of the Government the then Prime Minister of India hoisted the Indian Flag. Therefore on every Independence day, the Prime Minister hoists the Flag and because from 26th January 1950, the President became the head of the Government, on every 26 th January the President unfurls the flag. On Independence day the flag is hoisted from below to the top of the pole, but on Republic day the flag is tied at the top and is only unfurled (not hoisted). In spite of so many years of Independence, people do not understand this and the flag is hoisted even on the 26th January in many places !

Today’s song is an inspirational song from the film Hum bhi kuchh kam nahin-1958. It is sung by Asha bhosle and chorus. The mukhada of the song is “Inquilab Zindabad”.

” Inquilab Zindabad ” was first coined by Maulana Hasrat Mohani in 1921 and it soon became a favourite with freedom Fighters. It is an Urdu word, which comes from the Arabic root of ” Inqlab” – which means change, transformation. The Freedom Fighters shouted this slogan to demand change in the governance of the country i.e. Independence.

The first song in a Hindi film using this slogan as its mukhda was in the film ” Shah E Misar “-1946, a film of actor Ajit’s Debut in his real name of Hamid. For reasons best known to Nehru and the Congress, ” Vande Mataram ” was not selected as the National Anthem. Instead, “Jan gana man” became India’s National Anthem. The first film song having ” Jan Gan Man ” in its music was the film ” Insaan ya Shaitan “-1933.

The Hindi film industry was never famous for making Patriotic films in a sizable number. Infact, when I started counting films made on national heroes, I was not only shocked but was utterly unhappy to find a miniscule number of patriotic films on Indian Heroes. For example, I found 6 films were made on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose-in 1947, 1950,1962,1966,1978 1nd 2004. 5 films were made on Shaheed Bhagat Singh and 3 films were made on Chhatrapati Shivaji. Few films were made on Rana Pratap, Gandhi ji, Padmini, Jhansi ki Rani, Kargil and Udham Singh. These are my cursory observations. There must be some more Patriotic films made in general, but not many on individual Heroes. This, when from 1931 to June 2017, a total of 12891 Hindi films were made !

Similarly, patriotic songs in Hindi films were also much less in number. Apart from films on specific Heroes, some songs were included even in social and family genre films. One can understand the helplessness of filmmakers in making Patriotic films and songs before Independence, due to fear of British backlash. After talkie films started, till Independence in 1946 it was only 16 years, while after 1947 till today, it is more than 70 odd years now. Therefore the reluctance to make films on different Patriotic Heroes and themes is not understandable.

Making patriotic songs before Independence was too risky to invite action from the British government. We all know how Kavi Pradeep had to go underground to avoid arrest by police for the song ” door hato aye duniya walo” in the film Kismet-1943. However, there was atleast one Music Director – Master Mohammed in the early years of Talkie films, who was a specialist in making Patriotic songs in his films and he was never stopped or punished by the British.

Master Mohammed started his career as an actor and composer in Krishnatone’s ” Harishchandra”-1931-one of the earliest Talkie films in the first year itself. He composed 20 songs in ” Seeta swayamvar”-1933. Same year he acted and composed music for India’s First Talkie Fantasy film “Lal E Yaman”-33. He used to sing songs in his films. He was MD of many films of Fearless Nadia, from her First big film ” Hunterwali ” -1935 to ” Sher E Baghdad”-46. He gave music to 24 films, composing 217 songs and sang 41 songs in 18 films. He also acted in 23 films.

His speciality was patriotic songs in his films. Some of his famous songs were, Hum watan ke-jai Bharat-36 and Zanda uncha rahe hamara-Lutaru Lalna-38. Another song from his film, “Jagat ka sapna” was based on Hindu-Muslim Unity. In his every film, there used to be a patriotic song. His last film as an actor was ” Flying Prince “-1946. His last film as a composer was Sati Seeta-46.

The music director of today’s song was S.D.Batish. I have a lot of respect for S D Batish,who did a marvelous job of promoting Indian Music in the UK and USA. He is one of those rare people who left the film world, but continued serving Indian Music, by turning a corner in Life. Such people are few in this world. The monumental work he did for Indian Music in foreign lands is unparalleled. An important point is that he did not do this service to Music for his personal gains. For his sustenance,he had opened a Restaurant in Santa Cruz,California,which was providing him enough for a comfortable living in the USA.

Now let us listen to this inspiring song….

————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 23 January 2013, six songs from six movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

We observe that three movies (out of six movies) whose songs were represented in the blog on this date ten years ago (viz on 23 January 2013) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three unYIPPEED movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today(23 January 2023).

Chronologically the oldest of the three unYIPPEED movies is “Maikhaana”(1967).

“Maikhaana”(1967) was produced and directed by Kidar Sharma for Show People, Bombay. The movie had Bambi, Zeb Rehman, Sailesh Kumar, Madhuraj, R.Sheila, Johnny Whiskey etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Maikhaana”(1967) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bhushan.

Only audio of the song is avilable. One can guess that it is picturised as a synchronised dance songs on two female dancers. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

We observe that two movies (out of six movies) whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date (viz 22 January 2013) have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (22 January 2023).

Three of the four movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge have already been taken up today and their songs covered in the blog.

The final BTYC eligible movie of the day is “Double Cross”(1973). The movie was produced by Yash Kohli and directed by Gogi Anand for Pasupti Pictures Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Vijay Anand, Rekha and Asha Sachdev in lead roles. The movie also had Devkumar, Madan Puri, Rajeeta Thakur, Kuljeet, Sulochana(Ruby), Mohan Choti, Sunder, Indra(Indira) Bansal, Capt.Manmohan, Polson, V.Gopal, Birbal, Raj Kishore, Habib, Mama, Ramesh, Lala Nazir, Jullien, Sammi, Shanti, D.Kumar, Dhanna, Baby Nalina, Sujata, Ratna, Zarina, Marie, Pushpa Varma, Parvati Shirodkar etc in it. David and Manmohan had made guest appearances.

Today is the 89th birth anniversary of Vijay Anand (22 January 1934-23 February 2004). He not only acted as hero in this movie, he was also involved in the movieas screenplay writer, Dialogue writing and Editing !

The song under discussion is a highly appropriate song for the occasion. The dialogues that precede the song has Vijay Anand breaking this news to Rekha that it was his birthday today. And then the duo break into this song in celebration. 🙂

Here is this song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

It is a song that I am listening for the first time, some 50 years after this song was created. It sounds as fresh and lively as it must have sounder 50 years ago. That is what is called timeless music.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
————————————————————————

A fortnight back, our ‘Sampaadak-Shri’ Shri Atul ji (if you are in Gujarat you will find this reference very common 🙂 ) posted a song for the ‘full moon occurrence’ which was on 06th January’2023. The song though appeared three days later on 09.01.2023. This song was ‘raat chaandni samay suhaana hai’ from the ‘1960’ movie ‘Basant’.

Today we have the ‘darkest night’ i.e. ‘amaavsya’ and I have a song for this occasion too :). I am presenting a song ‘celebrating the kaali raat’. That reminds me these lines ‘ab kisko kyaa milaa ye muqaddar ki baat hai’ from the song ‘ek chaand aasmaan pe hai’… 🙂

Let us come back to tonight’s post …

This song is a song that I got to listen to on radio in recent months. It sounded familiar, though I was not able to put a finger to it. Moreover I felt that the song may aready be there on the blog. But it was not. So the next step was to find out the details of the song, viz know the name of its movie. It turned out to be ‘Agent 009’. Many sources mentioned it as a movie of the year ‘1980’. However this movie is from the year ‘1981’.

Not just that, it turns out that this movie was again released in ‘1983’ with the title ‘Desh Shatru’, replacing the names of the producer-director-story writer of the earlier title ‘Agent 009’.

The movie “Agent 009” was directed by Chaand for ‘S.V.S. Films, Bombay’. And, the revised version ‘Desh Shatru-1983’ had Vijendra Mittal as director.

The star cast of this movie includes Rehana Sultana, Vijendra Mittal, Madhushala, Zareen, Padma Khanna, Bharat Kapoor, Gautam Bhatia, Manhar Desai, Maruti, Jagdish Raj, Mushtaq Merchant, G. Jilani, Vikas Anand, Nalini Singh, Shesh Chand, Suresh Garg, Vinod Kumar, Ramesh Goyal, S.P. Dubey, Manik, Ramkumar, Thapa, Khalil Khan, Sonam Randhawa, Amit Kumar, Ramesh Jindal, Thakurdas and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1981, and with the new title ‘Desh Shatru’ it was passed by Censor Board on 12.04.1983.

According to HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985) the revised version mentioned the name of the producer-director-writer of the movie as Vijendra Mittal.

Vijendra Mittal was also the lead actor of this re relaesed movie.

“Agent 009-1981/ Desh Shatru-1983” has four songs penned by four different lyricist viz. Verma Malik, Vishweshwar Sharma, Nandi Khanna and Pankaj Gyani.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

Sr.No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s
01 He aag lagaa di paani mein Verma Malik Kishore Kumar
02 Maharaja.., heera hoon kohinoor hoon main Nandi Khanna Dilraj Kaur
03 Sun mere Sai baba, Vishweshwar Sharma Chandrani Mukherjee
04 Teri umr ka saal badhha, ye raat matwaali hai … Pankaj Gyani Asha Bhonsle

Today I am presenting a song sung by Asha Bhonsle and composed by Sonik-Omi from this movie.
This song is a nice song to listen to. It seems to be a ‘party’ song , perhaps celebration a birthday as it mentions ‘teri umr ka saal badhha…’…

It is a celebration song, but it also contains words of caution…

Lekin…
Lekin …
Lekin kaali hai
(ye raat 🙂 )

… this song must be having some ‘mystery’ surrounding it 🙂 which we are not privy to.

Readers who have watched either of the movies ‘Agent 009/Desh Shatru’ may be able to tell us more …

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us enjoy this song sung by Asha Bhonsle and written by Pankaj Gyani.

Music (in ‘Pancham’ style) is by Sonik-Omi.

Only the audio of this song is available.

This movie ‘Agent 009-1981/Desh Shatru-1983’ makes their debut on the blog with this song. Also, I think that the lyricist Pankaj Gyani makes a debut as a lyricist on the blog. In the list of lyricist on the statistics page on the blog we have a name Pankaj only but not Pankaj Gyani.

(Note – HFGK mentions both the movies separately as per their year of release and with above information mentioned).

Song-Ye raat matwaali hai (Agent 009)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Pankaj Gyani, MD-Sonik Omi

Lyrics

teri umar ka saal badhha
lagtaa hai aaj deewaali hai
teri umar ka saal badhha
lagtaa hai aaj deewaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
lekin

lekin kaali hai
teri umar ka saal badhha
lagtaa hai aaj deewaali hai
teri umar ka saal badhha
lagtaa hai aaj deewaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
lekin

lekin kaali hai

aaye ho jazbaat liye
dil ki haseen saugaat liye
aaye ho jazbaat liye
dil ki haseen saugaat liye
nazron ke ye nazraane ae ae
nazron ke ye nazraane
tere liye hain deewaane
ye raat matwaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
lekin
lekin
lekin kaali hai

hansee khushi jee bhar jee le
meri nigaahon se pee le ae
hansee khushi jee bhar jee le
meri nigaahon se pee le
poore kar le sab armaan
aan aa aa
poore kar le sab armaan
kya jaane kal honge kahaan
ye raat matwaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
lekin
lekin
lekin kaali hai

aaj raat deewaani hai
nazar nazar mastaani hai
aaj raat deewaani hai
nazar nazar mastaani hai
dil bhi jawaan
aur husn jawaan
dil bhi jawaan
aur husn jawaan
qatl ke hain saare saamaan
ye raat matwaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
lekin
lekin
lekin kaali hai
teri umar ka saal badhha
lagtaa hai aaj deewaali hai
teri umar ka saal badhha
lagtaa hai aaj deewaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai
ye raat matwaali hai ae
lekin
lekin
lekin kaali hai
