[Ed Note: Delayed by 3 days on our account, this post was received in email just past midnight on 17th March. It should have posted on 18th. The reference to the dates in the article should be taken from 17th March.]

Hullo Atuldom

18th March 2012 was the first time I sent a contribution to Atulji in the form of lyrics of one of Deewaar’s songs – “Maine Tujhe Maanga Tujhe Paaya Hai“. That happened to be Shashi Kapoor’s 74th birthday. That post also marked 300 songs of Sahir Ludhianvi on the blog. It is nine years since then and we touched 700 songs of Sahir on the blog recently. That was post number 5655 for the blog considering that we had touched 2900 on 3rd September 2010 and those days the blog was chugging along at a great speed.

Ever since 2012 March I have tried, rather inconsistently, to send in a post for Shashi Kapoor’s birthday. My last post for the occasion was in 2019, the song being “Kya Karoon Mujhko Time Nahin“. As I re-read that post I found that the first time I participated on the blog was as a commentor (I was a pillion rider to Peevesie that day when she wrote that comment) for a Shashi Kapoor song.

The first Amitabh song that I wrote a post for was, I think, the friendship song of Suhaag. I am glued to the idiot box whenever there is an Shashi Kapoor-Amitabh Bachchan movie playing and I have been indulged by a certain channel of the DTH provider who played ‘Namak Halal’ (1982) and ‘Suhaag’ (1979) yesterday.

As I am writing this post, that particular channel is showing ‘Chori Mera Kaam’ (1975) of which I have very vague memories of, having seen it in the ’70s. The things that I remember is Deven Verma’s character which was called Praveen Bhai, Zeenat Aman and Shashi trying to outsmart each other and because this was a movie directed by Brij it had interesting roles for Ashok Kumar and Pran. It had great music by Kalyanji Anandji.

He must have been a great co-actor as we have seen him with Shatrughan Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Hema Malini, Rakhee, Zeenat Aman, Sharmila Tagore, Parveen Babi and so many others. But we can’t forget his pairing with Nanda in the ’60s with whom he featured in 8 films.

He began his career playing the childhood of Raj Kapoor in ‘Awaara’ (1951) etc. and had his first adult role in Yash Chopra’s ‘Dharmaputra’ (1961) going on to act in almost 116 movies of which 60 were solos and 55 multi-starrers. He was a Padma Bhushan winner and was honored with the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 2014, for his contribution to Hindi Cinema.

He was a filmmaker who made movies that were not in the commercial format and got the likes of Shyam Benegal, Govind Nihalani, Aparna Sen, Girish Karnad to direct it. And he used to say that he acted in the regular masala movie so that he could finance the kind of movies that he liked to offer his fans.

I was reminded of today’s song thanks to ‘Chori Mera Kaam’. No, I haven’t discovered any hidden song in that movie. We have already Yippeee’d it. It reminded me of the Zeenat Aman – Shashi Kapoor films. ‘Chori Mera Kaam’ was followed by 10 films like ‘Vakil Babu’ (1982), ‘Bandhan Kachhe Dhaagon Ka’ (1983) etc.

There was this 1983 masala movie ‘Pakhandi’ directed by Samir Ganguly. It had Shashi Kapoor- Zeenat Aman -Asha Parekh- Sanjeev Kumar leading a cast with Ranjeet, Jagdeep, Helen, Leela Mishra as supporting cast. The song is the handiwork of Majrooh Sultanpuri-Laxmi-Pyare-Asha Bhonsle-Kishore Kumar. The video shows Zeenat and Shashi Kapoor participating in a DANCE COMPETITION!!!! Shashi Kapoor dancing???? I will not say that he was a bad dancer but definitely not in the same league as his brother Shammi Kapoor or his nephew Rishi Kapoor. He had a sense of rhythm like his other brother Raj Kapoor and no ‘two- left-feet’ issue like his contemporary Dharmendra. And this song has choreography very different from what we generally see Shashi do. It has prompted me to put this masala movie in my to be seen list.

This Week, That Year – 4
———————————–
20Sep – 26Sep, 2010

Post by post analysis of the weekly output – is an exercise that is getting more involved and detailed. As we progress, we are finding newer varieties and newer variations that add on to a now growing list of things to look at and check for. OK, so let us see what insight this week brings in.

Let’s first do the numbers. The challenge analysis and other details are presented in the table below. With one dot day (on 23rd Sep), this week saw as many as 34 posts. Except for one repeat, all songs are from different movies. So, 33 movies got featured that week. As many as 12 films made their debut. And of the 33 films that were showcased that week, 22 films have been yippeee’d over the past 10 years. Of the remaining 11, I am shifting two film to the twilight zone of Conditional Yippeee status, which I had proposed last week. The films are ‘Panchaayat’ from 1958 and ‘Dr Vidya’ from 1962 – I will give more details little later in write up.

I will highlight one change in notation. Last week I had proposed that for the songs which are listed for the film, but which are possibly not available in any format, will be denoted by ‘LFe’ – short for ‘Lost Forever’. Now there is a rethink about this terminology. At least one response to me was that ‘Lost Forever’ is a despairing notation, putting a sort of finality to the issue. So I propose to change this terminology to ‘UT’ indicating that the song is ‘Untraceable’ at least for now.

Two major milestones were announced this week. With the sixth song posted on 20th Sep, 2010, the blog reached the 3000th post. Given where we were at that time, ten years back, this was an enviable milestone in itself. Looking back, it may seem not very significant, on account of where we have now reached. But at that time, breaching the 3000 barrier was a great event. With the same song, we also had the first 1000th milestone for an individual artist. This very same song also became the 1000th song by Lata ji, posted on our blog. This was the first such accomplishment on the blog, for an artist.

We had just one guest post this week. Raja ji has done the post for the 3000th song plus the 1000th song of Lata Mangeshkar.

This week, we see many interesting variations and differences in the information that is available about the songs contained in specific films. Here are the details,

  1. ‘Deewaana’ (1952) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. Then the footnote to this film indicates that one more song was recorded for this film in the voice of Shamshad Begum. The inference to be drawn is that this 9th song is an unused song from this film. This song is also available, and has been posted on our blog.
  2. ‘Panchaayat’ (1958) – the gap in information is quite remarkable here. There is one song listed in Geet Kosh that is simply not traceable anywhere. The words of the song are “Main Ye Soch Kar Us Ke Dar Se Utha Tha”. Ah yes, rings a bell. This song appears in the 1964 film ‘Haqeeqat’. I replayed the movie to check, but did not find even a snippet of this song.
    However, viewing the film gave me some good information. The theme song of this film, “Mil Ke Baitho Jodo Bandhan” is a multi part song that appears in the film five times. We have this song on the blog, but we only have the portion that is heard in background as the film titles are being presented on screen. This song recurs on four more occasions later in the film.
    So two updates to this film that must be put on the blog. First, the theme song has to be updated for all the multi part segments. Second, then this film should be declared Conditional Yippeee, because the song “Main Ye Soch Kar. . .”, in all likelihood will remain untraceable, as far as this film is concerned.
  3. ‘Parwaana’ (1947) – Geet Kosh lists 9 songs, whereas we on the blog had added two more which we have extracted from the film soundtrack. One of them – “Balam To Pe Sabar Pade” is a very special song. This is the very last recording of KL Saigal Sb. It is an incomplete recording. However, the director has used this as a background song near the end of the film, by modifying the situations somewhat.
  4. ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs, whereas in the film there is one more song, actually a qawwaali, in the voice of Shamshad Begum and Usha Mangeshkar. So on the blog, we have one more song than the list in Geet Kosh.
  5. ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960) – On the blog we have one additional song, actually a snippet that is played at the end of the film. This snippet is not listed in the Geet Kosh.
  6. ‘Dr Vidya’ (1962) – This song list mismatch here is quite confusing. There are seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, out of which the song a serial no. 2 “Yahi Din Hain Bhanware Mann Arey Tum Nahin Samajhte” is not traceable. It does not appear to match with any other song in the film. And then there are two songs in the film which are not listed in the Geet Kosh. There is a fun qawwaali – “Yoon Hans Hans Kar Dekho Na Idhar”, which is performed on screen by Helen and Prem Chopra. And then there is this romantic song of promises to meet again – “Main Kal Phir Miloongi Isi Gulsitaan Mein”. So we have 8 songs of this film already posted, and there is one still pending whose fate is not known. Possibly then ‘Dr Vidya’ also merits to declared Conditional Yippeee.
  7. ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – This film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. However, on our blog, we have one more additional song posted, which is essentially a poem rendition.
  8. ‘Doctor’ (1941) – I had mentioned about this film in the previous episode of this series. There is a small bit of confusion in the song list of this film in the Geet Kosh. GK lists 11 songs for this film. This film was declared as Yippeee’d on 29th August, 2014. In that post, Atul ji had written that ten songs of this film are already posted, and the eleventh song was being posted, declaring this film to be Yippeee’d. However, as we examine the lists, there is a bit of confusion that prevails overall.
    For starters, the song “Aai Nit Nai Rut Ki Bahaar” is listed twice in GK, once with Ila Ghosh as the singer, and once with Pankaj Mullick as the singer. This threw me off so completely, that I spent three four days two weeks ago, trying to trace the Pankaj Babu version of this song. Most responses I got from within the circle of collector friends was that this song does not exist. Secondly, the iconic Pankaj Babu song – “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar” is not listed in GK. I went over the GK entries in detail, including the addenda and the corrigenda. But could locate no other information.
    After some back and forth discussions, it is concluded that there is an error in the GK listings, in that the song listed in GK at serial no. 11 – “Aayi Nit Nari Rut Ki Bahaar” in the voice of Pankaj Babu, is incorrect, and that the words of this song should be “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar”. If this change is made, then the listings can be reconciled correctly.
    There is still one more variation in the GK listing and the blog list. The GK listing shows the two songs viz. “Kab Tak Niraasha Ki Andhiyaari” and “Bhai Jagat Ujiyaari Dekho” as two separate songs. On our blog, these two songs appear in the same post, so essentially the blog list does not show the latter song.

Now a word about the song covered in this post. The film is ‘Zindagi Ya Toofaan’ from 1958. As per the Geet Kosh, this film has 10 songs listed. All the songs come from the pen of J Nakshab, a name that we are also familiar as Nakshab Jarchavi. Music is composed by Nashaad.

The film is produced under the banner of Serafim Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Nakshab Jarchavi, the lyricist. The cast of actors is briefly given as Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Minoo Mumtaz, Johnny Walker, and Yakub. The film tells the story about the love of a young man, role played by Pradeep Kumar, for a dancing girl, role played by Nutan. Nine songs of this film are already posted here on our blog. This is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board.

The song itself is a wonderful expression in words about the exchanges that happen between the lover and the beloved. Each couplet, each line is such a beautiful visualization of that relationship. The video clip for this song could not be located. So it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. Given the music and rendition, one can surmise that this song is presented as a mujra on screen. Expectedly, the song is performed by Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz. Both are dancing girls entertaining the guests, which would include Praeep Kumar and Yakub.

This wonderful ghazal presented as a mujra, is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board, and we can declare this film to be Yippeee’d now.

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 81
————————————————–

OK, so finally ‘Anmol Ghadi’ got yippeee’d this week, on the very first day of the week. And Atul ji, still waiting for you to clear the mystery behind this yippeee.

Once again, a very prolific week, the pace of post updates continues in full swing. Except that one day this week, we scored only a single. But for the rest of the week, it was all sixes with one extra run from an overthrow.

The blog scored 38 posts this week. Of these 38, we had only one guest post for the week – by Santosh Ojha ji. A total of 36 films made their appearance, with two films scoring two appearances each. We had 1 film that reached yippeee status. A whopping 15 films made their debut this week. That is close to almost half the films that got featured that week.  Since that week was done with, of the 36 films featured, 26 films have been formally and fully yippeee’d. Ten of them are still awaiting their numbers to be fully showcased. Given below is the detailed chart for the week. You will notice a new column and new notations today. I will explain them later in this write up.

You may notice that I used the phrase ‘formally and fully’ to qualify the yippeee status of the films. The reason I used this phrase is the following. As we are making progress towards our ideal of bringing on board all the Hindi film songs, we do find ourselves against certain difficult limitations. These have to do with – one, non availability of certain songs, and two, erroneous or missing information about some films and songs. I will highlight these situations as we progressively face them. For this week, here are the difficult situations that I came across.

The first one is the film ‘Mukhdaa’ from 1951. This film debuted on our blog on 16th Sep ten years back. The film has 11 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. We have located and posted 9 of them over the past decade. The remaining two are practically untraceable. Firstly, of the 11 songs listed, one was never put on a gramophone record, as the producers planned for and contracted with HMV for only 5 discs, which means 10 songs in all. The song at serial no. 6 – “Dekho Jee Pehli Baar, Kiya Hai Tumse Pyaar” was never released on a gramophone record. Then comes a footnote in the Geet Kosh which states that one record, N36900 was ordered, but then cancelled later on. It never got published, although the songs were recorded. This record was supposed to carry the two songs at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale Mehlon Mein Hans Rahe Hain” and serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee, Palle Nahin Maal Jee”. So that would mean that we should have 3 missing songs and not 2.

But wait, here is one more interesting twist in the story. It seems that after cancelling the publication of the record N36900, the producers went ahead and commissioned one more record, with number N50008. Looking at the huge gap in the series number of the records, it is clear that the latter record (N50008) was ordered much later than 1951. Strangely, this newly ordered record now carried the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal. . .” and the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri, Meri Teri”. This latter song at serial no. 10 was already published and is available as one side of the record with number N36870, the flip side of which carries the song at serial no. 5 – “Neele Se Dupatte Pe Hain Peeli Peeli Dhaariyaan”. The net outcome of these, what I shall call – confusing decisions – is that the song at serial no. 10 – “Jaa Teri Meri. . .” is now available on two distinct published gramophone records for this film. And the song at serial no. 3 – “Mehlon Ke Rehne Waale. . .” has got lost, probably forever. The saving grace is that the song at serial no. 7 – “Poochhiye Na Haal Jee. . .” is now available. It might also have been lost forever, but for this confusing set of decisions, which saved this song for posterity. And so the songs at serial no. 6 (this one not planned at all for release on gramophone record) and the song at serial no. 3 (unpublished due to cancellation of one gramophone record), are likely never going to surface. They may still be existing on some original spool tapes from the original recordings, and/or they may be on the soundtrack of the film. However, since both these items are not yet available in public domain, and with very little likelhood that they will make an appearance in the future, we could label them as LFe (Lost Forever). That does leave us two songs short of ever declaring this film as yippeee’d.

Coming to the second similar instance, also from this week. The film is ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ from 1962. It had made its debut on our blog on 23rd Dec, 2008. The seventh song of this film was posted on 24th Sep, 2011. Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. The missing song is the one at serial no. 5 – “Sahil Ki Taraf Kashti Le Chal, Toofaan Ke Thapede Sehna Kya”. As per the listing, this song was recorded in the voice of Hemant Kumar. This song never got published on a gramophone record. Now eight total songs will completely fit on 4 gramophone discs. But the producer seems to have taken a decision to completely omit this song. In fact, the song at serial no. 6 – “Bhanwra Bada Naadaan Haaye”, makes appearance on two gramophone discs nos. N54036 and N54038, while the above mentioned song in Hemant Kumar’s voice has been completely axed from any publication. It does not exist in the film. The film information booklet lists this song, and that is just about it. Here is one more case where a song qualifies to be labeled as LFe. And that also leaves the film ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ one song short of being declared as yippeee’d.

Based on the above discussed circumstances, these two films will never reach the Yippeee status. So I have a proposal here to address this situation. In the face of such stern circumstances, I propose that we introduce a Yippeee variant status – ‘Conditional Yippeee’ – to be indicated as ‘Yc’ in our charts and tables. In such cases, when we come to the conclusion that it is (almost) impossible that one or more songs of a certain film will ever be traced, we may declare that film to be Conditinally Yippeee’d, once all the possibly available songs are accounted for on our blog. The proposal is presented for consideration of the team, and I would request other members to please present their views and comments. In the table above of the week’s status ten years ago, I am provisionally marking these two films as ‘Yc’, pending agreement by the team,

This week we have one more case of a partial missing song in a multi part / multi version scenario. In the case of the film ‘Chaand Mere Aaja’ from 1957. The main theme song of the film – “Chaand Ko Dekho Ji” / “Chaand Mere Aa Ja Re” – has one additional part, identified as the sad version. Details of this part are provided by dear Prakash ji, including the additional lyrics. Just that we as editors have not yet gotten around to update the post itself. In fact, the HFGK listing shows 7 songs, which include this sad version of the song. This sad version of the song is not released on gramophone discs, and is available only from the film itself. My effort is to get this post updated within a day, and be able to change the pending status of this film from ‘0.5’ to ‘0’. And by the way, the Geet Kosh listing has one incomplete information relating to this song. It lists Lata Mangeshkar as the singer of this part. However, as we view the video, we find that this part is in the voices of both Rafi Sb and Lata ji.

Let me come to the song for today. This discussion on errors and limitations has become quite long. I also wanted to write about the film ‘Doctor’ of 1941 and the related info error in the Geet Kosh. I encountered this error the previous week. But I will write about it in the next episode of this series.

‘Hercules’ of 1964, has quite a dubious distinction to note. The first song, the debut of this film, came on board on 18th September, 2010. Today, I bring on board the second song of this film. Interesting that this film has been in hibernation for a full decade, despite the fact that there are some wonderful songs pending for this film. As is evidenced by the song in this post – a Helen dance song in a royal darbaar setting. The words come from the pen of Anand Bakshi, the music is from the mind of N Datta and the singing voice is Asha Bhosle. On screen we see Dara Singh, as Hercules, in chains, possibly being prepared for execution. Other actors we see in this not so clear a video clip, are Nishi, BM Vyas, Maruti Rao, Leela Misra, P Kailash and Indira Billi.

Helen’s performance is her usual self – so wonderfully elegant and graceful, even as she gives a sensuous performance. The ease with which she is coordinating the dance movements, the lip syncing, the facial expressions et al – she is a master class all by herself.

I request the readers to please do comment on the proposed ’Conditional Yippeee’ status and the associated notation introduced in this week’s chart. Thanks.

Blog Day :

4438 Post No. : 15879

Some years back, I recall having seen for the first time on the internet the photo features of Hindi film stars such as Madhubala, Nalini Jaywant and Begum Para in ‘Life’ magazine. These photographs were taken by the magazine’s well known photographer, James Burke in 1951 who was posted in India.  From the standard of 1951, these photographs would have ranked as bold. But one more actress also featured in that magazine – the featured photos were bolder than those of the stars I mentioned earlier. Subsequently, I had also seen her images appearing in ‘Filmindia’ magazines of 1948 and 1949. The actress in the photoshoot of 1951 was Mohana Cabral.

Today, September 11th is the 30th Remembrance Day of Mohana Cabral who died of heart attack this day of the year 1990 in France where she had been staying with her husband and daughter since 1986.

Mohana Cabral (03/02/1929 – 11/09/1990) whose real name was Mona Cabral, was born in Socorro in Bardez taluqa of North Goa in Konkani speaking Christian family. In early 1930s, the family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) when her father changed his job to Bombay-based Hindustan Construction Company. Mohana did her initial schooling at Victoria High School in Mahim. Later. she was put in a boarding school in Pune where she completed her high school.  In Pune, she joined as a telephone operator in a telephone company. It is through connecting the long distance telephone calls that Mohana got acquainted with some of the film stars of that time including Nargis, Begum Para and Pratima Dasgupta.

Mohana got introduced to Kishore Sahu who offered her a role in his film ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949) which was her debut film though ‘Aag’ (1948) was released first without her name being accredited in the film.  Kishore Sahu changed her name from Mona to screen name, Mohana which got attached with her during the rest of her life not only in films but also in the Konkani plays and singing career.

Sometime in 1948, Mohana got involved with Konkani ‘Tiatr’ in Mumbai. (‘Tiatr’ is a Portuguese word used in Goa for ‘theatre’ for the Konkani dramas encompassing music, dance, and singing. In a way, it is akin to Marathi ‘Sangeet Natak or musical dramas). Her debut Konkani drama was ‘Cortub Avoichem’ (1948) which was directed by the pioneer of Goan Konkani Tiatr, C Alvares, the producer, director, actor, song writer and the singer. In fact, Alvares was instrumental in encouraging girls to play the female roles in his dramas and introduced Mohana and her younger sister, Ophelia. In 1952, Mohana got actively involved with Konkani tiatr in Mumbai, mostly collaborating with C Alvares as an actor-singer and worked in about a dozen plays. Both the sisters were actor-singers in Konkani Tiatr in Mumbai and later in Goa. In fact, in Goa, Mohana is known more as a tiatrist than the Hindi film actress.

In 1951, Mohana met Edward Downing, a Royal Indian Air Force pilot in a hotel where the shooting of her film ‘Sansaar’ (1951) was in progress. They got married in 1951 and had a son, Mark. Unfortunately, her husband died in a plane accident in less than two years of their marriage. In 1955, Mohana got married for the second time with John D’frates who was working for the United Nations and got posted at Beirut.  With this posting, Mohana bid adieu to Hindi film industry. Her last shoot was for the film, ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

In Beirut, Mohana learnt Arabic and began producing dance programmes for Television. She also acted in a couple of dramas on Television. After spending many years in Beirut, her husband got posting in Vienna from where he retired in 1986. Post retirement, Mohana and her family settled in France. Mohana was very much interested in Goan Konkani Tiatr. She would regularly visit India on holidays and act in Konkani dramas in Goa. During the period of her visits, she had also cut a few discs of her non-filmy Konkani songs, some with her mentor, C Alvares.

Mohana died of a heart-attack in France on September 11, 1990 when she was 61. [Thanks for the inputs from Shishir Sharma’s Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on Mohana posted on May 13, 2015 and an article in ‘The Navhind Times, Panaji, Goa dated April 6, 2020].

It is interesting to note from her filmography that how quickly Mohana established herself in Hindi film industry. In ‘Aag’ (1948), she had one song role though her first debut film was ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949). In 1949, she had acted in as many as 6 films. 1950 was a blank year for her as probably she got associated with Konkani plays in Mumbai. In 1951 and 1952 she did 5 films each. 1953 and 1954 was again lean years for her. In 1955, she did 4 films before quitting the film industry. In all, she acted in 26 films in her short span of 6 years in the film industry. The full filmography of Mohana is given below:

1948: Aag.
1949: Chaar Din, Jagriti, Kamal, Patanga, Rimjhim, Saawan Aaya Re.
1951: Adaa, Naadaan, Nageena, Sagaai, Sansaar.
1952: Aashiana, Chham Chhama Chham, Najaria, Saloni, Saaqi.
1953: Shole.
1954: Danka, Dost, Shart.
1955: Insaaniyat, Marine Drive, Sau Ka Note, Teerandaz.
1956: Taksaal.

I had noticed in the advertisements of films for which she worked in 1949-50 that  her name was written either in bold or capital letters. That shows that Mohana was popular among the audience of that time and her name mattered for the success of the films. In most of her films, she got roles of a ‘side kick’ to the comedians like Gope, Agha and as a singer-dancer.  Her popularity can be gauged from the fact that in most of her films, Mohana will have at least one song picturised on her. Some of the songs picturised on her for which video clips are available for watching are listed below:

Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji chamke taare – ‘Aag’ (1948)

Pyaar ke jahaan ki niraali sarkaar hai – ‘Patanga’ (1949)

My my my my my dear – ‘Nageena’ (1951)

O baabu kaise dil karoon qaaboo – ‘Sagaai’ (1951)

Lucknow chalo ab raani – ‘Sansaar’ (1951)

Haseena sambhal sambhal ke chal – ‘Saaqi’ (1952)

O madam do se ho gaye ek ham – ‘Aashiana’ (1952)

Dil mera hai deewaana – ‘Shart’ (1954)

Mohana has also rendered two songs on herself in the film ‘Rimjhim’ (1949).

On the occasion of Mohana’s 30th Remembrance Day, I present a song “Aisi Nainwa Ki Laagi Kataar” from ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955) rendered by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan which is set to music by C Ramchandra. The song is picturised on Mohana as a part of a ploy to wood wink a soldier to stripe out his uniform to be used for disguising Mangal (Dilip Kumar) as soldier to gain access to the prison to facilitate the release of Bhanupratap (Dev Anand).

In the video clip, there are only two stanzas where as the audio clip contains the full song of four stanzas. This is the 10th song to appear on the Blog out of 17 songs in ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

Blog Day :

This Week, That Year – 1

Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 56
————————————————–
Reviewing the week of Aug16 – Aug22, I just thought of doing the analysis in one more way – to just see where all we had been and what all were we listening to during the time from the start of the blog on 19Jul2008 to 22Aug2010. Interesting things appeared.

It all started with thought – what is the distribution of songs across the decades in the week under review. I did a quick sort check and came up with the following data. This week we had seen 31 songs posted in all. And these 31 songs were distributed according to decade as follows,

1930s

1

1940s

4

1950s

16

1960s

9

1970s

1

The distribution is quite as expected – of the 31 songs, 25 songs (80%) are from the decades of 50s and 60s. Goodness, aren’t these the most favorite years of practically all listeners of Hindi film music.

The thought then prompted me to take a view of the total songs posted thus far, i.e. till 22Aug of 2010. By the end of that week, the total number of posts was 2827, and the total number of songs posted was 2928. The 100 odd more songs are due to multiple songs being included in a single post – multipart and multi version songs.

And the results are pretty much along the same lines, as expected. The overall distribution for all songs till 22Aug2010 stands as follows,

1930s 26
1940s 228
1950s 972
1960s 1069
1970s 511
1980s 89
1990s 30
2000s 5

The overall % of the songs from 50s and 60s dips a little – down to 71%, but still, overwhelmingly most songs are still coming from that era. There is a sizeable interest in the 1970s – 17%. I am sure that is due to the fact that we are still listening to our favorite artists from the Golden Era. To approximately round off, the 30s-40s component is 8% and for 80s and beyond the allocation is 4%. In tabular form, as follows

30s-40s 8%
50s-60s 71%
70s 17%
80s+ 4%

Well, much as expected – the distribution of the listening and selection preferences of this group. Well, not maybe every week, but I will try to revisit this analysis after 2/3 months, and see the evolution of our selection preferences with time.

Let’s do the numbers for that week. Total posts that came on board that week is 31. Number of films represented is 27, with four films making a double appearance. Four films had made their debut that week, and no films were yippeee’d. However, since that week over the past 10 years, 24 of these films have been yippeee’d and seven remain pending. Also, that week we had one dot day.

The special event recorded for that week was a blog century. I have now inserted another column in the chart to track the appearance of century milestones. On 16 Aug 2010, the song “Jaan Pehchaan Ho” from the 1966 film ‘Gumnaam’ clocked in on the 28th century milestone for the blog. It was the 2800th post to come on board. Going back to revisit some of these posts, it is very enlightening. It is a delight to recall and refresh the large amount of trivia that is now silently sitting in the electrons on this blog’s storage. About this post – this was a special request post that Greta Memsaab had written for the blog. At 2800 posts, this was only the 12th guest post till then, and the second on by Memsaab. Poring through the article and the comments, one learns and re-learns so much more about these songs – names of the guitarists, name of the dancers, the fleeting appearance by Helen, the fact that the lead in dance music is lifted from the song “Teen Kanastar Peet Peet Kar” (‘Love Marriage’, 1957), and that an ad by Heinken has used this song – the entire lead in music and the mukhda of the song, in the voice of Rafi Sb. It is a revival experience par excellence.

And so, getting into this week. Seven films, and eight challenge opportunities for the team members. I must acknowledge that members are sending in challenge contributions – lyrics and sometimes articles too. And we need more of that. Gear up, and happy posting.

‘Raagini’ of 1958 is one of the two films pending for today’s date. The song being presented is a stage dance song, and as the performance rolls to the end, one finds that it is actually dream sequence song. It is being played out in a dream being experienced by Padmini, as she visualizes herself to be Anaarkali, dancing in the court of Prince Saleem, that is Kishore Kumar, the person she is love with.

The lyrics of this song are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi, the music is composed by OP Nayar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

With this post, the film ‘Raagini’ moves closer to gaining yippeee status, with just one more song pending.

[Author’s Note: This post is the beginning of a weekly series that is about the story of this blog. This story has already been appearing as the weekly challenge information being shared on Whatsapp group. In discussion with Atul ji, we agreed that the weekly presentation of this evolving story has become as good as a post by itself. And so we decided that the weekly information post on Whatsapp will also be duplicated as a post on the blog itself, making a more firm documentation of this story. Hence, this series.]

Blog Day :

4393 Post No. : 15761

Screenplay is the first stage when a film is said to be born on paper. A screenplay writer translates the story/script from its literary form to an audio-visual presentation incorporating the ideas of the directors as to how each character is to be presented, the mood of the scenes, the surrounding environments, the stance of dialogue deliveries, the camera angles, lighting etc. Some screenplay writers also incorporate the dialogues. Directors like Satyajit Ray would write the screenplay in sketch form, visually presenting the scenes in each sheet of paper, something like what we used to see RK Laxman’s ‘You Said It’ in newspapers. In other words, screenplay is a complete document, representing a film in a paper format.

In a professional set-up, a director of the film would like to have with him a bound copy of the screenplay, a copy of which he would also handed over to each one of main actors, cinematographer, art director, sound engineer, choreographer, lyricists, music directors etc. before the film’s shooting commences. Some of the directors like Bimal Roy used to follow the system (as revealed by Dilip Kumar in an interview) while directors like Guru Dutt did not give much importance to this system as quite often, he used to make changes in the screenplay at the spur of the moment  while shooting (as revealed by Abrar Alvi in his book, ‘Ten Years With Guru Dutt’). In our office parlance, we can call screenplay as a manual of instructions for all those who are closely associated with the making of a particular film.

From the above description, it is apparent as to how important the role of screenplay writers have in the making of films. Unfortunately, most of the screenplay writers are ‘faceless’ in the sense that their faces seldom appear on the film magazines. It was Salim-Javed, the duo who, as a story, screenplay and dialogue writer, attained the status of stars during 1970s and early 80s and their faces became familiar to most of the cinema-lovers.

I am discussing in this article, one of the most prominent ‘faceless’ screenplay writers, an introvert who kept a low profile despite writing screenplays for many Hindi films for over 3 decades, which became popular. Some of his works attained the classic status such as ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Devdas’ (1955), ‘Sujata’ (1959), ‘Bandini’ (1963), ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966), ‘Abhiman’ (1971). He is the Bengali novelist and short-story writer, dancer, theatre actor and the director, Nabendu Ghosh who became a screenplay writer by default.

I came to know about Nabendu Ghosh for the first time about 3 years back when I was going through a book ‘Gulzar in Conversations with Nasreen Muni Kabir’ and Gulzar’s many interviews on the newspapers. In the book and the interviews, Gulzar gave credit to Nabendu Ghosh in shaping his career as a screenplay writer. I became interested in knowing him in details only when I came to know that he had made a statement as early as in 1945 that if at all he joined the film industry, it would be only under Bimal Roy. I found this statement surprising because in Bengali literary circle, he had already attained the status of a star writer due to popularity of his novels and short stories.

During the past few days, I have read books and interviews on Nabendu Ghosh given by his colleagues in the film industry, his own interview on Vividh Bharati and the extracts from his Bengali autobiography, ‘Eka Naukar Yatri’ (‘Traveler of the Lonely Boat’) translated in English by his daughter, Ratnottama Sengupta. On the basis of these sources, I have written his profile incorporating the important events in his life which is given below:

Nabendu Bhushan Ghosh (27/03/1916 – 15/12/2007) was born in Dhaka where he did his early schooling. The family shifted to Patna when his father, an advocate started practicing at the Patna High Court. Nabendu continued his secondary school in Patna and continued his college there completing MA in English literature. During his Patna days, Nabendu joined a local theatre group where he acted, mostly in the female role. He also learnt dancing at Uday Shankar’s Almora Cultural Centre.

Nabendu got a job in DIG’s office in Patna. However, during Quit India Movement, he wrote articles against the British rules. For this, he got warning from his sympathetic superiors from the office not to indulge in writing anti-British articles. Instead of heeding their advice, he preferred to resign from the job and shifted to Kolkata in 1944 where his life as a novelist and short story writers began. By the end of 1940s, Nabendu had became a star writer as his novels and short stories were very popular. During this period, he had written stories depicting almost every aspects of life in Bengal – the famine, the tram, the strike, the rationing, communal violence, partitions victims etc.

On a visit to Rajshahi (now in Bangla Desh) sometime in 1945, he watched a Bangla film ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1945) in a theatre. The film had influenced him so much that he took a vow that if he ever become a writer for the films, it would be for Bimal Roy, the director of the film. Probably, this was more like an emotional reaction to the film rather than his serious intention at that time. After a couple of years, Nabendu had a chance meeting with Bimal Roy in Kolkata who was impressed with writings. But it was not until 1951 when Ashok Kumar invited Bimal Roy to direct the film ‘Maa’ (1952) that Bimal Roy thought of taking Nabendu along with him.

Both for Bimal Roy and Nabendu Ghosh, the migration to Mumbai was not by choice but because of the compelling circumstances. With the creation of East Pakistan (now Bangla Desh), the markets for Bangla films and the Bangla novels and short stories had considerably dwindled thanks to the then East Pakistan Government’s policy of suppressing Bangla language in favour of Urdu. What was thought to be a temporary assignment in Mumbai in 1951 became a long creative association between Bimal Roy and Nabendu Ghosh from 1951 to 1966 as a screenplay writer in 9 films besides doing cameo roles in ‘Do Bhiga Zameen’ (1953) and ‘Sujata’ (1959).

During his 3 decades of association with Hindi films, Nabendu Ghosh wrote screenplay for a little over 30 films which included apart from Bimal Roy’s films mentioned above, films like ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Baadbaan’ (1954), ‘Milap’ (1955), ‘Detective’ (1958), ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Laal Pathar’ (1971), ‘Abhiman’ (1973), “Pratigya’ (1975), ‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’ (1978), ‘Krodhi’ (1981) etc. He also directed ‘Trishagni’ (1988) which gave him the National Film Award for the best debut director. Sometime in the middle of his filmy career, he had directed ‘Doctor Babu‘ (based on Phanishwarnath Renu’s story, ‘Maila Aanchal’) with Dharmendra and Jaya Bahaduri in the lead roles and RD Burman as the music director. When 70% of the film was canned, the producer of the film died leaving the film unfinished.

In 1995, he directed a television serial for Doordarshan, ‘Anmol Moti’ on Ashok Kumar. He directed Children Film Society’s ‘Netraheen Sakshi’ and for Ministry of Health, the film ‘Ladkiyaan’ (1997). He was a visiting faculty at FTII and conducted workshops on screenplay writing during 1967 to 1980. During his life time, Nabendu wrote 26 Bengali novels, 18 collections of Bengali short stories and his only English book – ‘Ashok Kumar – His Life and Times’.

Nabendu Ghosh passed away in Kolkata on December 15, 2007 at a ripe age of 91. Nabendu Ghosh’s last novel, ‘Kadam Kadam’ based on the experiences of character actor, Nazir Hussain in INA, was released during his birth centenary year 2016.

If we go through the list of the films for which Nabendu Ghosh wrote screenplays, it would be observed that most of the films were based on stories from literature. His screenplay writings were so powerful that even in respect of women displayed in the films as fallen from the grace from the eyes of the society, the cine audience loved those characters like Chandramukhi in ‘Devdas’ (1955), Kalyani in ‘Bandini’ (1963), Bijli in ‘Chanda Aur Bijli’ (1965), Hirabai in ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) and Chandni in ‘Sharafat’ (1970). Raj Kapoor had said after the release of ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) that Nabendu Ghosh’s screenplay brought in him the character of  ‘Hiraman’ more than that of Raj Kapoor.

Ratnottama Sengupta, the daughter of Nabendu Ghosh directed one-hour documentary film, ‘And They Made Classic Films’ on the bonding between Bimal Roy and her father based on his interviews. The film was shown at 23rd Kolkata International Film Festival, 2017. One of the interesting anecdotes which Ratnottama Sengupta narrated from the documentary film is –

“On the first day of shoot of ‘Devdas’ (1955), Dilip Kumar was in a tense mood walking up and down on the studio floor. When Nabendu Ghosh asked the reason, Dilip Kumar said that all three are sitting on his shoulders, referring to Pramathesh Barua who directed ‘Devdas’ (1935), KL Saigal who acted in it and Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay who wrote the novel. She said that Nabendu Ghosh buried all three ghosts and painted a fresh picture of Devdas in his screen-play in such a way that even today when we talk of Devads, we think of Dilip Kumar.” [Quoted in an article by Anuj Kumar in ‘The Hindu’, January 5, 2018).

There were some pitfalls in Nabendu Ghosh’s filmy career also. He never got credit for writing screenplay for the film ‘Madhumati’ (1958). In fact, there is no mention of screenplay writer in the credit title of the film. When Guru Dutt selected one of his stories and wanted him to write screenplay for ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) on his story, Nabendu Ghosh declined by saying that he was busy with the screenplay of ‘Sujata’. He gave his story to Guru Dutt requesting him to get the screenplay written by someone else. When the film was released, Nabendu Ghosh was surprised to note that he was not credited in the film as a story writer while Abrar Alvi was duly credited as screenplay and dialogue writer.

‘Baadbaan’ (1954) for which Nabendu Ghosh wrote the screen-play, is regarded as a classic film though the film did not fare well at the box office. Vijay Anand who claimed in an interview at Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute, Kolkata in 2003 that he had seen this film 10 times. He regards it as a piece of literature appearing on the screen. It was more of a screenplay writer’s triumph than the director.

I am presenting a song “Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko” from ‘Baadbaan’ (1954) which is rendered by Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Indeevar which is set to music by Timir Baran-S K Pal. In this song, Asha Bhosle seems to be trying to sing like Lata Mangeshkar, that too the way Lata has sung in ‘Anarkali’ (1953). Of course, this is my hunch.

Song – Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko (Baadbaan) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Timir Baran, SK Pal

Lyrics

thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahoon to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahoon to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor
 
beh jaaye na teri duniya
aansoo na bahaaungi main
beh jaaye na teri duniya
aansoo na bahaaungi main
meri haaye na tujhko jalaa de
tere paas na aaungi main
mujhe dekhe na teri nazren
dekhe na teri nazren
ho jaaun itni door
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor
 
baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
taqdeer ke bair kiya hai
taqdeer se lad loongi main
main tod chalun
main tod chalun ek pal mein
tod chalun ek pal mein
duniya ka har dastoor
magar tere pyar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoom majboor

thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahun to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor

Blog Day :

4390 Post No. : 15756

Today, 25th July is the 24th anniversary of the passing away of GS Kohli, one of the most talented musician and music director in Hindi cinema’s Golden age.

Gursharan Singh Kohli was born in 1928. As a child and young man, he learnt to play dholak and many other musical instruments. He was just 24 years when he started working with the famous music director OP Nayar, as his assistant. He continued to be Nayar Sb’s assistant music director till the end of 1960s, even though he had started his own career as an independent music director with the film ‘Lambe Haath’ in 1960.

He went on to create wonderful music for films like ‘Shikari’ (1963), ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ (1965) and ‘Namaste ji’ (also 1965). Despite scoring some of the most popular hit songs of the 1960s, his career remained confined to B and C grade cinema. His last film as an independent music director was ‘Jaalsaaz’ in 1969.

Today we present this enchanting cabaret song from the 1966 film ‘Do Matwaale’. The song is penned by Farooq Qaiser and is sung by Asha Bhosle. On screen, the song is performed by Helen, as a club dance song, in the inimitable way that only Helen can perform. Present in the scene also we can see the actress Malika, and two Sikh gentlemen, who actually are Randhawa and Madan Puri in disguise.

The lyrics of this song were sent in by Prakashchandra ji.

Another very enamoring dance number by Helen, who performs to the music of GS Kohli.

हटा दो जाम
नज़र से नज़र मिला साक़ी
रहूँ ना होश में
ऐसी मुझे पीला साक़ी
(हिक)
हटा दो जाम
नज़र से नज़र मिला साक़ी
रहूँ ना होश में
ऐसी मुझे पीला साक़ी
हटा दो जा॰॰आम
हटा दो जा॰॰आम

सभी ने छोड़ दिया
कह के हमको दीवाना
हमारे वास्ते
सब कुछ यही है मयखाना
हमारे वास्ते
सब कुछ यही है मयखाना
नहीं है कोई हमारा
तेरे सिवा साक़ी
रहूँ ना होश में
ऐसी मुझे पीला साक़ी
हटा दो जा॰॰आम
हटा दो जा॰॰आम

यहाँ पे लोग
मुकद्दर बनाने आते हैं
दिलों को जोड़ने
ग़म को भुलाने आते हैं
दिलों को जोड़ने
ग़म को भुलाने आते हैं
दुआएं मांग
के उतरे ना ये नशा साक़ी
रहूँ ना होश में
ऐसी मुझे पीला साक़ी

हटा दो जाम
नज़र से नज़र मिला साक़ी
रहूँ ना होश में
ऐसी मुझे पीला साक़ी
हटा दो जा॰॰आम
हटा दो जा॰॰आम

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 42
——————————————————————————

From the three movies eligible for the ‘blog ten-year’ challenge today, we have already represented one today in the morning and taking this another one to add to the celebrations for today. This song is from the 1964 movie ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ and it is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. This song is picturised on Mehmood and Shubha Khote, where the two lovers are singing and enjoying in their ‘famous’ style 😊

As mentioned in the earlier post total four songs were represented on the blog on 19.07.2010 including a song from this movie ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ (1964).

Song  Movie title-Year  Remarks
 Aaj Hamen Ban Behad Bhaata  Amar Jyoti (1936)  06 songs posted
 Sataayega Kise Tu Aasmaan Jab Hum Nahin Honge  Sheesham (1952)  07 songs posted
 Main Rickshaw Waala  Chhoti Behen (1959)  All songs covered
 Aayegaa Koi Hamraaz Mere Pyaar Ka  Phoolon Ki Sej (1964)  05 songs posted

Two of the above listed films, i.e. ‘Amar Jyoti’ (1936) and ‘Phoolon Ki Sejh’ had made their debut on the blog that day.

‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ has total nine songs (including one three-part song) which are all written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music for this movie is composed by Aadi Narayan Rao. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie. So far, the following songs from ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ have been posted on the blog;

Song  Posted On
 Aayegaa Koi Hamraaz Mere Pyaar Ka  19.07.2010
 Aa Tu Aa Zara Dil Mein Aa  06.07.2012
 Taaron Ki Aankhon Ka Taraa Tu  07.04.2013
 Aa Bhi Ja Rasiya  09.06.2014
 Jaane Mujhe Kya Ho Gaya  14.08.2017

Seven songs of this film have already been covered on the blog, including the multiple version song ‘Taaron Ki Aankhon Ka Taara Tu’. So now, song are now left to be covered. One song being posted today will leave this movie only one short of ‘Yippeeee Land’ 😊

When I checked the earlier song posts of this movie, I noted that one song from this movie Aa Bhi Ja Rasiya was covered by our respected late Bharatbhai under his ‘Raag Maalikaa’ series (this was song number 12 in that series).

On this day today when our blog is celebrating 12th birth anniversary I take this opportunity to remember and pay our tributes to Bharatbhai who is not with us this year to celebrate this occasion. We all miss him today.

But I am sure wherever he is, he is enjoying this ‘musical journey’ and showering his blessings to this blog and on all ‘Atulites’ today.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

aaj ki raat, ye kaisi raat
ke hum ko neend nahin aati. . .

If the previous song in the series was a lament about lonely nights and the longing that accompanies them, this song today is expressing the opposite emotion. The lovers are together, and the lady is now complaining that her lover does not have an iota of sleep in his eyes, and that she is worried for that.

The gamut of human emotions is spread out wide and far. And whatever be the emotional flavor one may select, one is sure to locate a song from Hindi films that expresses that emotion fairly accurately. Continuing with the saga of sleepless nights, here today we have a flavor of sleeplessness that is expressing a complaint against the lack of sleep on the part of the gentleman. The lady is cajoling and chiding him, trying to induce sleep in his eyes. She is asking him what toy he would like to have, and that she may bring to him that which he desires. But the imploring thread intertwined is that the lack of sleep in his eyes worries her.

Word are crafty. They are a double edge sword that say one thing and mean another. The scenario being played out on screen appears to be one of deception. Apparently Ranjeet is pursuing Navin Nischol, who in turn seems to have taken refuge at Rekha’s home. Now both Rekha and Navin Nischol are inside a room, with Ranjeet sitting outside. And the scenario being played out is as if Rekha is putting a baby to sleep inside the bolted room. The song is telling in words that a mother is trying to put a baby to sleep. That is what a person outside the room would surmise, as one listens to the words of the song emanating from the room. However, the scene, as is being played out inside, there is no baby being put to sleep. Rather, the lovers have been thrown together by themselves in the room. The lady is trying to fend off the advances of the gentleman, and is singing a complaint that there is no sleep in his eyes, and that she would rather that he would take shelter in sleep.

The word and the scenario present an interesting juxtaposition. The film is ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ from 1970. Memory serving right, I remember this film being promoted as the debut film for the lead pair of Navin Nischol and Rekha. As later inputs would clarify, technically this is not the debut film for Rekha, and that her first film ‘Do Shikari’ (1978) was eventually released after a delay of many years. I remember seeing the posters and hoardings for this film as a school going kid. And I also remember that a few songs of this film became very popular and were often played on the radio waves.

The film is produced under the banner of Deluxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Sehgal, a director of certain repute from that era. The list of actors is presented as Navin Nischal, Rekha, Shyama, Jaishri Talpade, Agha, Narendra Nath, Iftikhar, Krishan Dhawan, Ranjeet, Chandrima Bhaduri, Sushma, Madhukar, Devi Chand, Pardesi, OP Kohli, Dhruv Kumar, Ajeet Bengali, Mamaji, and Darpan Nille etc.

The films has seven songs, all from the pen of Verma Malik. The music is composed by the duo of Sonik Omi. Two songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. This is the third song to find its place here.

Today also is the remembrance day for Manohar Lal Sonik, the senior partner in this duo team of music directors. He had passed away this day (9th July) in the year 1993. This is the reminder nudge from our dear Prakashchandra ji, who has sent in the lyrics for this song.

So this was one of the lesser heard songs in its time, being overshadowed by its more popular siblings like “Sun Sun O Gulabi Kali”, “Kaan Mein Jhumka Chaal Mein Thumka” and “Aankhen Meri Maikhaana, Maikhaana, Maikhaana”. On screen the song is performed by a pre-makeover Rekha, chiding a naughty Navin Nischol, while Ranjeet is seated outside the door of the room.

Listen, view and enjoy.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 95 #
——————————————

Today’s song is from the 1974 movie ‘Hawas’. This movie is mostly known by its song “Teri Galiyon Mein Na Rakkhenge Kadam“. I remember that this song was frequently played on radio and loud speakers in those years. And I too associate this movie only with this song and had never tried to listen to the other songs of this movie. And yes, I never get to watch this movie until now.

So, when our dear Prakash ji had sent a song from this movie, I was eager to know about the other songs from this movie. So far, two songs (including the song mentioned above) from this movie have been posted on the blog.

‘Hawas’ is directed by Sawan Kumar for ‘Mercury Productions’. He was also the producer, storywriter and the lyricist of this movie. The star cast includes Anil Dhawan, Neetu Singh, Bindu, Vidya Sinha, Shiv Kumar, Fariyal, Pradeep Kumar, Randhawa and Mehmood. Supported by Pichoo Kapoor, Ashok Khanna, Randhir, Asit Sen, Shera, Basant, Neelam, Nelu, Sharmilee, Jugnu, and Coca-cola. Rekha and Vinod Mehra made friendly appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie is written by Sawan Kumar while the screenplay was written by Bimal Dutt. Dialogues were written by Ameen Sayani and editing of this movie was done by YG Chouhan. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.06.1974 with ‘restricted viewing’ certificate.

This movie has five songs sung by Asha Bhonsle (four songs) and Mohd Rafi (one solo song).  Lyrics for all the five songs are written by Sawan Kumar and music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Today, 8th July is the sixty-second birth anniversary of actress Neetu Singh (born on 08th July, 1958). On this occasion here is a song from this movie picturized on her. She is lip-syncing Asha Bhonsle’s voice on the screen and many other female artists and Anil Dhawan can be seen in the picturization of this song.

I had never listened to this song earlier. It’s lovely song and grows upon if we listen to it more and more.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

कल रात उस ने ए

कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ
कल रात उस ने
कभी इस करवट अ अ अ अ अ अ
कभी उस करवट अ अ अ
दीवाना रहा
कभी तन से लिपट
कभी मन से लिपटता
हाँ कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ आ
कल रात उस ने

बड़ा दीवाना है
वो तो प्रेम के राग सुनाये
बड़ा दीवाना है
वो तो प्रेम के राग सुनाये
मोरी कोरी चुनर
मोहे लगता है डर
कहीं मैली ना हो जाए
मोहे पास बुलाये
मैं ना जाऊं खुद आये
उसे लाज ना आये
मोहे अंग लगाए
फिर सारे दीप बुझाए
डरके बोली
ओ हमजोली
कल का वादा
बिलकुल पक्का
वो मुस्कुराता रहा
कभी ऐसे पलट अ अ अ अ अ अ
कभी वैसे पलट अ अ अ
दीवाना रहा
कभी तन से लिपट
कभी मन से लिपटता
हाँ कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ आ
कल रात उस ने

क्या किया

बड़ा नटखट है वो
बन गया रे कृष्ण कन्हाई
बड़ा नटखट है वो
बन गया रे कृष्ण कन्हाई
मैं जमुना में
नहाने गयी
और उस ने चाल चलाई
मेरी साड़ी चुराई
मेरी अंगियां चुराई
मैं पैय्यां पड़ी
मैंने बिनती करी
नहीं माना रे राम दुहाई
बोला राधा
संगम होगा
मैं क्या कहती
वादा जो था
मैं शर्माती रही
कभी ऐसे सिमट अ अ अ अ अ अ
कभी वैसे सिमट अ अ अ
दीवाना रहा
कभी तन से लिपट
कभी मन से लिपटता
हाँ कल रात उस ने
सपने में
मुझको छेड़ा आ आ
कल रात उस ने
