One of his most well known poems. It tells of the in depth vision of this poet’s mind that has explore the sensitivities of the human mind and this existence. He passed away day before yesterday, on a Sunday afternoon. Went in for a post lunch nap, never to rise again – as simple as that. He was 87.

Born as Nandram Das Bairagi on 10th February, 1931, in Rampura village of district Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh, he had a penchant for writings songs and poems right from his teen years. The manner in which he strung together his verses, and then the way in which he presented them, made him a popular poet at kavi sammelans and cultural programs. People were drawn to this very young man whose words of romanticism, and the social and philosophical messaging brought him to limelight quite early in life. Once at such a gathering, the local candidate for an upcoming election anointed him with the name ‘Balkavi’, and this name then became his signature for life. [This episode is attributed to Kailashnath Katju, a candidate belonging to the Congress party.]

The association with this political outfit became stronger as he moved into election politics. In 1968 he was elected to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly. He won again in 1980, and was a minister in the cabinet till 1984. From 1984 to 1989 he was a member of the Lok Sabha. After this, he was also a member of the Rajya Sabha from 1998 to 2004.

In his heydays, he wrote occasional songs for films, in the decades of 1960s and 1970s. His first film as a songwriter is ‘Gogola’ from 1966. The duet “Zara Keh Do Fizaaon Se Hamen Itna Sataayen Na. . .” became quite popular. Not only had he the ability to write such romantic verses, but also to create such comedy songs as “Bori Bunder Se Borivali, Dekh Li Maine Gali Gali”, also from the same film.  He has written about 40 songs for the following films (as per Geet Kosh listings),

  • Gogola (1966)
  • Do Boond Paani (1971)
  • Reshma Aur Shera (1971)
  • Veer Chhatrsaal (1971)
  • Achhaa Bura (1972)
  • Kshitij (1974)
  • Rani Aur Lalpari (1975)
  • Jaadu Tona (1977)
  • Pal Do Pal Ka Saath (1978)
  • Azaadi Pachchees Baras Ki (UR)
  • Chautha Paalna (UR)
  • Mausam Badla Hai (UR)

His best known and most popular creation is “Tu Chanda Main Chaandni. . .” from ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, that is tuned by Jaidev. In ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’, he worked with SN Tripathi and in ‘Rani Aur Lalpari’, he teamed up with Vasant Desai. His verses from ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’ are poetic gems – “Nimbuwa Pe Aao Mere Ambuba Pe Aao…”, “Gauri Raat Guzaar Do Kar Chakvi Se Baat…”, and “Jaga Rahe Ghanghor Nagaade Bula Rahi Hai Ranbheri…”. His songs in the normal B grade horror film ‘Jaadu Tona’ are way beyond the quality of the film – “Har Sannata Kuchh Kehta Hai, Har Khamoshi Kuchh Gaati Hai. . .” and “Saanwri Saloni Jamna Ka Jeevan, Ganga Ki Umar Paaye Tu. . .”.

Today I present this unusual philosophical song of love from the film ‘Jaadu Tona’ (1977). The music is composed by Hemant Bhosle. The singing voices are of Yesudas and Asha Bhosle. A poignant and curious exchange on the topic of love, that talks not of birds and roses, but tells the tales of silences and the conversations of mind. Well composed in a slow pace for the mood of the song, and equally well rendered by Asha ji and Yesudas.

Bidding goodbye to the poet of simple verses and deep insights. RIP Balkavi Bairaagi ji.

Song – Har Sannaata Kuchh Kehta Hai  (Jaadu Tona) (1977) Singer – Yesudas, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Balkavi Bairaagi, MD – Hemant Bhosle
Yesudas + Asha Bhosle

Lyrics

har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

wo sapnon mein bhi aate hain
to khushboo si chhaa jaati hai
us waqt ka aalam kya hoga
jab baahon mein aa jaayenge
andaaz lagaane waale hi
andaaz lagaaya karte hain
aksar gumsum sapne hi
awaaz lagaaya karte hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kuchh awaazen aisi bhi hain
jo mann hi mann takraati hain
har sannaata kuchh kehta hai
har khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

is aag se jo takraata hai
ye aag usey pee jaati hai
is aag ko jo pee jaata hai
kehte hain khuda ho jaata hai
do chaar gunaahon ki hasrat
chhoti si tamanna maafi ki
insaan hi rehne do mujhko
mujhko na khuda kehlaana hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai
kehte hain khuda ki haalat bhi
kuchh aisi hi ho jaati hai
jab sannaate kuchh kehte hain
jab khaamoshi kuchh gaati hai

हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

वो सपनों में भी आते हैं
तो खुशबू सी छा जाती है
उस वक़्त का आलम क्या होगा
जब बाहों में आ जाएंगे
अंदाज़ लगाने वाले ही
अंदाज़ लगाया करते हैं
अक्सर गुमसुम सपने ही
आवाज़ लगाया करते हैं
सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कुछ आवाज़ें ऐसी भी हैं
जो मन ही मन टकराती हैं
हर सन्नाटा कुछ कहता है
हर खामोशी कुछ गाती है

इस आग से जो टकराता है
ये आग उसे पी जाती है
इस आग को जो पी जाता है
कहते हैं खुदा हो जाता है
दो चार गुनाहों की हसरत
छोटी सी तमन्ना माफी की
इन्सान ही रहने दो मुझको
मुझको खुदा ना कहलाना है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है
कहते हैं खुदा की हालत भी
कुछ ऐसी ही हो जाती है
जब सन्नाटे कुछ कहते हैं
जब खामोशी कुछ गाती है

Thoda Sa Dil Laga Ke Dekh. . .

Film – ‘Musafirkhana’ from 1955, she plays the role Mary, the love interest of Frankie (Johnny Walker). Mary’s mother fancies another match for her daughter, and Frankie is contemplating suicide on that account. As it often happens in films, Mary breaks out into a song, trying to lift up Frankie’s dying spirits.

1958 – she plays the role of Nargis, the bosom friend of Sheela (Nutan), in this confused and comic scenario of mixed identities and true love – ‘Aakhiri Daao’. Funny to note that Nargis is her real name. And casting credit lists her assumed name. Always life is so interesting.

On to 1960 and ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’. Now she is Sheela, the naughty and playful nurse, who is reprimanded by the head nurse for putting on too much lipstick. Then it is ‘Half Ticket’ in 1962. As Lily, a partner in crime with Raja Babu (Pran) – the scene is simply hilarious, as she tries again and again to pat Vijay’s (Kishore Kumar) bottom – actually his back pocket, searching for an expensive diamond that Raja Babu has hidden there. There is a whole music and dance sequence, with a tape recorder keeping company, as she tries to extract the stolen goods from Vijay, without letting him know.

In 1965, she is Stella, the au pair companion to Rita (Nanda), in the musical romantic drama ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’. 1970, moving into senior roles; the film is ‘Purab Aur Paschim’, and she herself is Rita, the British Indian wife of Sharma (Madan Puri), always with a smoking cigarette in her hand.

Fast forward forty years, to 2012 – she is very much on screen, this time playing the mother in law to Nargis (Daisy Irani) and grandmother of Farhad (Boman Irani) in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi’.

6th March earlier this year, she passed away in her sleep, just some weeks short of her 89th birthday. A memorable career for more than six decades, with quite over 200 films in her portfolio, and a number of very successful TV serials thrown in for good measure. Nargis Rabadi – she would have been 89 today.

Born this day in 1929, Nargis’ father was a priest in the Parsi temple. She was just 3 years old when her father passed away. Her mother raised her two daughters, working as a cook at the Parsi community festivals. After completing her studies, her elder sister got a job as an office secretary at Johnson & Johnson. So when Nargis completed her studies, she also came to Johnson & Johnson, working in the packaging department.

A close family friend and uncle, Chinuu Mama, was associated with the film industry. One thing led to another, and Nargis was introduced to Sheikh Mukhtar, who at that time was searching for a second lead lady for his film ‘Ustad Pedro’ (1951). At first, he was concerned that Nargis may not be able to handle the Hindi/Urdu dialogue, being a Parsi. But Nargis talked to him and the director Harish, and they were convinced she could do the role. That’s how she got her first break in films.

And with the first break, she also got a new name. The film’s director was concerned that her name might be confused with another rising star of those years – Nargis. And so he suggested her to change her name to Shammi. She did, and the name served her well for the remainder of her life. In later years, she became to be better known as Shammi Aunty.

Stringing through the cameos above, an interesting thing emerges. Her name is Nargis. She changes that to Shammi. In the 1958 film ‘Aakhiri Daao’, her name in credit appears as ‘Shammi’, and her screen name is Nargis. Then in 2012, her screen name is not clearly evident (in ‘Shirin Farhad. . .’), but then her daughter in law (Daisy Irani) has the screen name of Nargis. 🙂

Alongside ‘Ustad Pedro’, Harish was also directing another film at the same time – ‘Malhaar’ (produced by Mukesh, the singer). Impressed by her performance during the shooting of ‘Ustad Pedro’, he cast her as the heroine of ‘Malhaar’ opposite to another new face, Arjun. Although ‘Ustad Pedro’ did good business and was popular, ‘Malhaar’ failed to impress at the box office. The prospects of growing as a leading lady in the industry slowly receded.

But on the other hand, she became very much in demand for second lead female roles. Especially if the role demanded some comic goofiness, Shammi was quite the first name that the producers thought of. With little breaks here and there, she continued her cinematic journey, playing oh so many an endearing roles, leaving behind indelible memories. The wide eyed shocked look on her face as she opens the door to find her grandson (Boman Irani) standing there, as if coming out of a melee – is simply priceless. So many more of such moments flicker through the mind’s eye, as I pull together this piece today.

The song that I present today, however, is on a more somber note, the words expressing the very emotion that the heart wants to convey – “तुम चले॰॰॰ क्यों चले”. The film is ‘Awaara Ladki’ from 1967. This is an Asha Bhosle solo rendition that is picturized on a much younger Shammi. In the clip, we also see Sudesh Kumar – with a very lost look on his face, walking away from her, and then the song begins.

It is a peculiar situation – I am reminded of the one earlier song that I had posted from this film. The emotional mood of the song and the situation of that song is precisely the same – Sudesh Kumar + lost look + walking away, only the lady singing that song is different. It is Sheela Ramani singing “Arre Jaane Waale Nazar To Mila Ja”. Discovery of these two similar songs indicate some sort of a love triangle in the film’s story. Interesting – prompts me to watch this film.

This song is not listed in the Geet Kosh, although the print does indicate that there are more songs than the four listed. Music is by Dhaniram, and the uploader of this video clip, a dear friend Dharmesh from Rohtak, has indicated that the lyrics are from the pen of Kaif Irfani. So I will go by that information for now.

Bidding a good bye to a dear goofy artist, and to the long innings she has played on screen. Rest in peace, Nargis; or maybe I should say, wallow in mirth Shammi Aunty, wherever you are.

Adios and farewell.

 

Song – Tum Chale. . . Kyon Chale  (Awaara Ladki) (1967) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Kaif Irfani, MD – Dhaniram

Missing Films of 1960s – 65
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Back to hunting in the 1960s once again. ‘Mr Murder’ from 1969 is as rare and obscure as one can think of. This very sweet melody is already published on YouTube, only partially though. I am uploading the more complete version today.

The film ‘Mr Murder’ is produced under the banner of Bundelkhand Films, Bombay and is directed by NA Ansari. The main star cast is listed as Naqi Jahan, Krishan Mehta, Ansari, Chand Usmani, and Rajan Kapoor.

The five songs in this film have been composed by the music director duo of Sonik Omi. Sonik Omi had made their debut as a team three years earlier in 1966, with the musically successful ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’  ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ (1966). After that, this film in 1969 is just their fifth outing. The names of Shakeel Badayuni and Qamar Jalaalabaadi are listed as songwriters for this film. This song is written by Shakeel Sb.

The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. A very sweet song that should not have become as unknown as it has become. Listen and enjoy.

[Ed Note: Sonik Omi’s first film is ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ and not ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’. The correction has been made in the article. Thanks to Satyajit ji for catching the error.]

Song – Hum To Dil Jaan Dono Hi Kho Baithe  (Mr Murder) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Sonik Omi

Lyrics

hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

ye baharon ka mausam
ye thandi hawa
tujh se pehle mazaa in mein
kuchh bhi na tha
ye baharon ka mausam
ye thandi hawa
tujh se pehle mazaa in mein
kuchh bhi na tha
aaj har cheez mein
ik naya rang hai
pyaar ka dhang hai
tu mere sang hai
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

tum mujhe is tarah
mere dilbar miley
jaise ik pyaase panchhi ko saagar miley
tum mujhe is tarah
mere dilbar miley
jaise ik pyaase panchhi ko saagar miley
tum ko paaya to
dil ko khushi mil gayi
zindagi mil gayi
bekhudi mil gayi
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe
tujh se aankh kya mili
ke tere ho baithe
hum to dil jaan donon hi kho baithe

हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

ये बहारों का मौसम
ये ठंडी हवा
तुझसे पहले मज़ा इन में
कुछ भी ना था
ये बहारों का मौसम
ये ठंडी हवा
तुझसे पहले मज़ा इन में
कुछ भी ना था
आज हर चीज़ में
इक नया रंग है
प्यार का ढंग है
तू मेरे संग है
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

तुम मुझे इस तरह
मेरे दिलबर मिले
जैसे इक प्यासे पंछी को सागर मिले
तुम मुझे इस तरह
मेरे दिलबर मिले
जैसे इक प्यासे पंछी को सागर मिले
तुम को पाया तो
दिल को खुशी मिल गई
ज़िंदगी मिल गई
बेखुदी मिल गई
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे
तुझसे आँख क्या मिली
के तेरे हो बैठे
हम तो दिल जान दोनों ही खो बैठे

Blog Day : 3554 Post No. : 14261

So, minus 1 and plus 1, we still got to the 100th Yippeee film yesterday.

Minus 1 because on 3rd April, Atul ji had announced the Yippeee-ing of the film ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983), after posting its ‘sixth + seventh’ songs together – an announcement that turned out to be incorrect. Avinash ji pointed out that there is still one more song to be posted from this film. With some more leg work and info-search we now have more detailed info about the song list of this film. Below is the details of the songs of ‘Razia Sultan’ that I had shared with Atul ji the same day, in email.

I just checked the 1981-90  volume compiled by Jagdish Purohit and Ghulam Qureshi, with the involvement of Suman Chaurasia of Indore. This volume was published as the HFM lovers were/are waiting for Hamraaz ji to bring out his next volume.

In this volume, the compilers have listed 12 songs for this film. Since ‘Razia Sultan’ is a well known film, and a landmark in itself, I am sure lots of information sources are available and there is less chance that the compilers would be in error. In a musical film like this, number of songs certainly would not be limited to 6/7.

The list of all songs, as per this volume, is

  1. Ae Dil e Nadaan
  2. Aayi Zanjeer Ki Jhankar
  3. Naghma e Mohabbat
  4. Jalta Hai Badan
  5. Hariyala Banna
  6. Ae Khuda Shukr Tera
  7. Khwaab Ban Kar Koi Aayega
  8. Tera Hijr Mera Naseeb Hai
  9. Taraana e Jashn e Taajpsohi
  10. Shubh Ghadi Aayi Re
  11. Ae Dil e Nadaan (this may be part 2, or a reprisal)
  12. Falak Se Awaaz Hai

As per our blog listing, we have as yet covered 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and possibly 11. As per the singer list, the songs 9 and 10 seem to important loaded songs; 9 has 4 singers and 10 has 6 singers. Both these songs have Ustad Faiyaaz Ahmed Khan, and Ustad Niaz Ahmed Khan in the list of singers.

Just like maybe Pakeezaah, the remaining songs are probably less heard, less popular ones, which may drop from the collective memory.  You may recall that the non-Ghalib items in Mirza Ghalib (3 in number) remained obscure for quite a long time, since the radio and the radio listening public focused on the Ghalib creations in this film.

So that was minus 1 for 3rd April.

However, Atul ji is quick to also point out that back on 16th Jan, we had actually Yippeee’d two films together on the same day. That had happened, because both Atul ji and I were separately working on two different Yippeee posts, and our communications to each other regarding the posts seemed to have crossed but not read by each other. So in quick succession, both he and I posted two Yippeee songs that day – “Gaadi Dilli Waali Chali” (‘Delhi Junction’, 1960) and “Soyi Soyi Chaandni Hai. . .” (‘Khazaana’, 1951). In his write up, Atul ji has noted that,

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

In fact, as Atul ji was hastening to complete the above Yippeee post for that day, I was equally busy on my keyboard, and almost simultaneously – a difference of about 45 minutes, I too posted the Yippeee post for the day, only to realize immediately that the work is now duplicated. So I immediately went back into my post and added this footnote,

[Ed Note: It was only after this song got posted that I took a breather, only to notice that Atul ji has also already welcomed another film (the previous post) to Yippeee-land today. It most certainly seems like the ‘yippeee-ing hour’, what with two films racing to Yippeee-land, just within minutes of each other. 😀 😀 ]

So, the two miscues cancelled each other out, and we are firmly able to announce that 100 Yippeee films have happened in the first 100 days of this calendar year (Gregorian). 🙂

Now, moving beyond the century yesterday, we come to ‘IOI’ of the Yippeee train today. Atul ji had posted the penultimate song of this film yesterday. Yes, I refer to the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’ – a film that has a full list of very memorable songs. This film made its debut on our blog way back on 12th Nov, 2010. Just see the list below of the songs posted so far. Each one of these songs is a veritable gem – in a mood that is so representative of the music of the 1960s.

Main To Tere Haseen Khayaalon Mein Kho Gayaa Sangraam 1965 3195 12-Nov-10
Masti Mein Doley Jiyaa Ho Sangraam 1965 4270 25-Jul-11
Dam Dam Dam Dam Damroo Baaje Sangraam 1965 10405 25-Oct-14
O Tera Chhup Chhup Ke Chale Aana Sangraam 1965 14093 23-Feb-18
Nikla sainyya chaalbaaz re Sangraam 1965 14255 10-Apr-18

These songs represent a music that was full of verve, full of energy, full of a joyous expression of love, taking in a lot of influence of the western rock and pop genres. Rhythm was more or less the dominant temper of this music, which was made for a popular taste that was already initiated by an increasing influence of western rhythms on the young minds of this nation. The decade of the 1960s was the time when the joys of freedom and the pain of partition were both tending to fade into paler shades, getting better of the passing generations.

The film is produced under the banner of Film India, Bombay, and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. The cast of actors includes Dara Singh, Geetanjali, Randhawa, Swarn Kumari, Maruti, Aruna Irani, Uma Dutt, Ratnamala, Mridula, Vishwas Kunte, Amrit Rana, Yunus Parvez, Baijnath, Helen, and King Kong.

After his earlier cameo appearances in films of 1950s, the first lead role that Dara Singh landed was in the film ‘King Kong’ of 1962. This was followed by ‘Aawaara Abdullah’ in 1963, then ‘Ek Tha Alibaba’, ‘King of Carnival’, ‘Rustom e Baghdad’, also 1963. In 1964, we see him in ‘Aandhi Aur Toofaan’, ‘Aaya Toofaan’, ‘Hercules’, ‘Dara Singh’ (yes, a film titled after his own name), ‘Rustom e Rome’, ‘Baadshah’, ‘Veer Bhimsen’. So when we come to 1965, Dara Singh has already appeared in a lead role in 12 films in just three years. The reason I am making this observation is that when I viewed this film in preparation for this post, I found a very interesting aspect. In this film, he is accompanied in the star cast by his younger brother Randhawa. The two brothers have already appeared together in ‘Aawaara Abdullah’, ‘Hercules’ and ‘Veer Bhimsen’. This is their fourth film together. As I viewed this film, I realized that the dialogues of both are dubbed in voices other than their own. I have not had time to sample once again his earlier films (some of which I know I have seen earlier) to ascertain whether this dubbing aspect is present in any of his earlier films. I do remember reading, well a long time back, that in the initial years of his career, his diction of Hindi/Urdu dialogues was less than desirable, as his voice had a very strong Punjabi accent to it. But I did not realize that he would be going through more than a dozen films and still be required to have his dialogues dubbed. The voice of the dubbing artist is very familiar, but I am not able to place a name to it right now.

The film is a costume drama with a strong element of palace intrigues and lost and found siblings stories. The corrupt Wazir (prime minister) has the king assassinated, and usurps the throne for himself. The king has two sons. The nanny for the two children is able to escape the bloodshed in the palace, along with one of the princes. The Wazir kind of adopts the second son, and raises him on a diet of lies and misinformation, hiding the truth about the death of the king, his father. The Wazir has a daughter, whom he wants to get married to the prince-in-custody. The prince-in-custody also fancies the lady. But the lady had lost her heart to a commoner in one of the villages in the kingdom, during some interludes that are very conveniently created by the story writers. The person she fancies, is actually the other prince, who had been taken away by the nanny and was raised by her in anonymity. So the tale of this film is about how the two brothers at first are enemies on account of fancying the same lady; then some way through the film, the truth about siblings is revealed and they become a team to vanquish the scheming Wazir and reclaim their father’s kingdom. And yes, the younger sibling gracefully steps aside for his elder brother to take over. 🙂

The one more interesting thing that I note about this film is the long drawn fighting sequences. Regular fans of Dara Singh films will recall the name King Kong. Yes, we had a wrestler by this name in that era when freestyle wrestling was a hugely popular spectator sport with the likes of Dara Singh, Randhawa, Goldstein, Imam Bux, Sheikh Ali, Hamida Pehalwan and of course the Great Gama Pehalwan etc. being the big names billed for such events. Believe it or not, but that was an era when for a freestyle wrestling match between some great names, one could expect anywhere from 1 Lakh to 2 Lakh spectators to be present (a Lakh is 100,000).

King Kong was a hugely bulky wrestler. His real name was Emile Czaja, and he was of mixed Indian – Australian descent, born in Hungary. He became a professional wrestler in the sub-continent and also appeared for bouts in all of south east Asia and Japan etc. Like Dara Singh he also migrated into Hindi films during the late 1950s and 60s, and appeared in many films generally as part of the villain’s team that would give a thrashing the heores to start with, and then at the end, get a beating of their lives at the hands of the lead wrestler. On YouTube, there are a few video footage clips of actual wrestling matches between Dara Singh and King Kong. Both of them appeared in many Hindi films together.

King Kong makes an appearance in this film also, as one of the henchmen of the devious Wazir. He has an additional significant presence in this film, as he also plays the father to the the young lady (Aruna Irani) who is the love interest of Maruti, the sidekick of Dara Singh in the film, making up a very detailed CSP (comic side plot). He fights on the side of the baddies, but eventually gives in to the goodies, since his daughter is in love with one of the goodies team member.

Ah yes, so I was talking about the long drawn out fight sequences in the film. They begin to appear almost from the start of the film, continue regularly throughout. Given these segments, the CSP and the songs, the actual story and dialogues have very little room to maneuver themselves. Everything other than the fight sequences seem to be in a hurry to get themselves done with. 🙂

Today’s song is the sixth song in the film. And what a rollicking dance song this one is. The trio of music directors – Lala Asar and Sattaar seem to be outdoing themselves in getting through the songs of this film. The song is filmed as a group dance song. The occasion is that the Wazir’s daughter has fled her father’s palace, choosing to come to the village where Dara Singh resides with his mother (actually his nanny from the royal babyhood days). The Wazir’s soldiers are chasing her, and they have been given a good beating by Dara Singh, Maruti and their team. This song is a celebration of their victory. We see Dara Singh and Geetanjali (Wazir’s daughter) and Dara Singh’s ‘mother’ seated prominently amongst the audience watching this performance. Maruti is part of this group dance. The video clip that is available is somewhat out of focus, on account of colors being splayed a little, as the photochemicals on the celluloid have aged. The face of the lead dancer is not very clear, and before I hazard a guess as to her identity, I request other friends and readers to please help identify this actress.

Enjoy this final song from this film to make it on to the billboard of our blog. And with that, we announce the Yippeee-dom status to this film. All aboard.

1971 – the turn of a decade, that took away, and was destined to take away, many things that were loved and prized in the industry.

The 1960s ended; and with that, an era came to close. An era, when music and melody ruled supreme in Hindi films. Shades of things to come had already started to appear in this decade. And the transition would be sort of complete by the time the world turned into the 1970s.

Connecting this thought with the turn of that decade and some of the people connected with the film that we are bringing in to Yippeee land tonight.

1971 – it was the year when Jaikishan passed away. I remember that issue of Filmfare where this news was announced. I would be too young to know anything much about the music and the music makers of Hindi films, and Jaikishan was just another name to me at that time. All the details and their significance would fill in many years later. That day, that issue of Filmfare, the one thing that stuck to my mind was – there is so little color in this issue, so much black and white it is. Just 41 years – not an age to go. But then, as always, our arguments and desires stand nowhere in this arena.

1971 – and the closure of the young baby faced flamboyance of the Golden Boy of the Sixties. Yes, Shammi Kapoor. Having blasted through the decade with an average of almost 3 musical hits of his own peculiar genre every year, the baby face was getting puffy, as was the midriff. 1971 was the time that he bade farewell to the lead roles and after the release of ‘Andaaz’, ‘Jaane Anjaane’, ‘Preetam’ and ‘Jawaan Mohabbat’ that same year, the next that we see him is three years later – 1974, as Dhoopu, the boisterous owner of the ‘Dhoop Chhaon’ café, all stacked with a beard on his face and suspenders to hold up his pants. There was this one exception though – the film ‘Chhote Sarkar’ with him in the lead role opposite to Sadhna, was released in 1974. But that we know was a much delayed release of a film from mid 1960s, on account of Sadhna’s health problems.

1971 – the perky and the chirpy Sunita of ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966), was still being readily cast opposite to the newer crop of heroes – Jeetendra and ‘Caravan’ (1971); Rajesh Khanna and ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ (1970); Navin Nischol and ‘Nadaan’ (1971); Vijay Arora and ‘Rakhi Aur Hathkadi’ (1972) et al. But these releases were also interspersed with other screenplays where Asha is one of the two pairs in the film, obviously the elder one – ‘Samadhi’ (1972), ‘Heera’ (1973), ‘Anjaan Raahen’ (1974), ‘Zakhmee’ (1975) et al; the transition successfully moving towards senior roles, undoubtedly.

Many a facet of an old order changed or were changing when 1971 turned on. Through the rest of the decade, we would see the passage of oh so dearly loved legendary singers – Mukesh, Rafi Sb. The color of Hindi film music would be changed. . . forever.

‘Jawaan Mohabbat’ – a film to be remembered, not just for the good music – some of its songs are so readily recall-able as listening favorites on the radio, but also as the phasing out of two very attractive leading artists who had ruled the industry top line for the entire decade of the 1960s. Asha had her debut opposite to Shammi Kapoor in the 1959 film ‘Dil Deke Dekho’. The two would be paired again as love birds three more times during the next twelve years – ‘Teesri Manzil’ in 1966, ‘Pagla Kahin Ka’ in 1970 and the Yippeee film of today – ‘Jawaan Mohabbat’ in 1972. ‘Jawaan Mohabbat’ – it was about young hearts in love. But in 1972, the future of these young hearts was all but moving to senior elevations in the screenplay.

The film is produced under the banner of Rupanjali Films, Bombay and is directed by Bhappi Soni. The cast of actors of this film is listed as Shammi Kapoor, Asha Parekh, Balraj Sahni, Rajendra Nath, Nirupa Roy, Pran, Shashikala, Dhumal, Raj Mehra, Madhavi, Krishan Dhawan, Kumud Tripathi, Baby Sarika, Mansaram, Ravikant, Sujata, Madhumati, Daisy Irani, Madan Kenny, and Vimal Chadha.

The seven songs of this film are shared amongst three writers, with Hasrat Jaipuri leading the honors with five songs and Rajendra Krishan and Shailendra doing one song each. S-J have composed the music in their own typical orchestral signatures. The earlier posted songs are listed here again for your review and recall.

Na Rootho Rootho Na Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 577 19-Jan-09
Zulmo Sitam Ko Bhi Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 744 14-Feb-09
Jab Muhabbat Jawaan Hoti Hai Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 1043 6-Apr-09
Mere Sapnon Ki Raani Tum Nahin Ho Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 6958 6-Nov-12
O Mil Gayi O Mil Gayi Mere Sapnon Ki Raani Mujhko Mil Gayi Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 6958 6-Nov-12
Jawaan Mohabbat Jahaan Jahaan Hai Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 7861 9-Apr-13
Nazar Mein Rang Aur Masti Bhara Toofaan Le Ke Jawaan Mohabbat 1971 14216 29-Mar-18

Today’s final song of this film to find its place on our blog, is a solo sung by Asha Bhosle. From the words and the style of singing, it appears to be a song of enticement. A song that would most likely be performed on screen by someone like Helen. However, not seeing her name in the list of actors, my guess is that this song is performed by Shashikala.

A wonderful recall of many thoughts and people, as we bring to close the list of songs of this film on our blog – ‘Jawaan Mohabbat’ of 1971 joins the Yippeee club, with all its songs now showcased here.

Hullo Atuldom

Yesterday (27 march 2018) was World Theatre Day. I learnt about this in the morning yesterday, as I was listening to the Vividh Bharati. Apparently, this was initiated in the year 1961, by The International Theatre Institute. It is celebrated annually on 27thMarch.

We have a number of actors in Bollywood, both past and present, who started their acting career on stage. Many of them never miss an opportunity to go back to act in a play or theatre reading etc. “We cannot forget the immediate response that we get from the audiences” is the most heard sentiment from these actors who keep going back to do theatre. And then, we have had actors who have performed ‘in front of the camera’ as they would perform ‘in front of a live audience’ – remember Sohrab Modi and Prithviraj Kapoor (in some of his initial movies). But the later generation of actors adopted different styles for theatre and movies. Also improved sound systems in theatres must have helped in later years; when one didn’t have to speak in ‘loud booming voices’ so as to be heard in the last rows.

Today with this post I am thinking of Farooque Shaikh who also did a lot of theatre and who would have been 70 on 25th March, just two days back (he passed away in 2013). I also remember Om Puri who was a product of National School of Drama along with Naseeruddin Shah. And yes, how can one forget our dear Shashi Kapoor and his work in bringing theatre to the layman through his Prithvi Theatre also helping many theatre groups in the process by giving a platform to exhibit their art.

Yesterday’s Indian Express (online edition) has an article on how the Twitterati are celebrating the day- http://indianexpress.com/article/trending/trending-globally/what-is-world-theatre-day-twitter-reactions-5112818/. The article begins with Shakespeare’s famous quote from “As You Like It” –

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.”

Strangely or coincidentally the song that I zeroed in for also says exactly the same thing. I had thought of it the moment I heard about the ‘World Theatre Day’. Then I sat through looking up articles on the internet and I referred Wikipedia for additional information and in the process landed on what Indian Express site had.

The song is written by a lyricist – Anand Bakshi – whose work I admire because he is one of the poets who puts the common man’s thoughts in poetry format (there are few more lyricists who do that but more on that later). The music is composed by Laxmi-Pyaare and playback is by Asha Bhonsle for Moushumi Chatterjee, whose presence is making Sulochana and Raj Mehra uncomfortable, while Vijay Arora and Nazeema are visibly squirming (would like to know why 😉). Then there is Jayshree T. dancing and Hari Shivdasani enjoying himself. There is also Snehlata (in white saree) who seems to be the happiest among the girls at the party. There are some more familiar faces in the party, which I am unable to name immediately. I request other readers to please help add more names to this video clip.

The film is directed by Sohanlal Kanwar and is one of the movies that has Subhash Ghai in its cast.

Blog Day : 3537 Post No. : 14207

An interesting observation regarding the Yippeee process for the film that is getting Yippeee’d today. Regular readers would have noticed a pattern in the manner that the films are getting Yippeee’d these days. Generally, in the case of films with just two or three songs remaining to be posted, the last two (or last three) songs kind of appear at a very rapid pace, almost on a daily basis, one right on top of the other. With such films, the penultimate one (or two) songs appear in quick succession followed by the final song of the film, on the next day.

Not in the case of the film being Yippeee’d today. On examining the list of songs of this film as they appear in the table below, the penultimate song of this film came on board on 12th Jan, 2018. And its Yippeee song today appears after a gap of almost two and a half months. And the reason for this delay – it is yours truly, of course. 🙂

When the penultimate song got posted on 12th Jan earlier this year, I immediately sent a note to Atul ji, requesting for doing the Yippeee honors for this film. The reason is that I wanted to bring on board the video of the song. Apparently the earlier posted songs of the film ‘Bus Conductor’, from 1959, were in video form, as one can make out from the write-ups of the first three songs of this film posted. These first three songs came on board on 2009, 2014 and 2016, and they were earlier available in video form. Now, these songs are no longer available, and the YT account of the erstwhile uploader has been blocked due to “multiple copyright infringements”. So the video clips of these songs are no longer available online. (Once again, the caveat – as far as I can search it online 🙂 ).

I have been able to acquire the video of this film through one of my good friends. I do not wish to say that we are the only ones having a this video film. Quite possibly, the video version is also in the hands of other friends, known or unknown. So anyway, I wanted to upload the video of this song for this post today. But as I was checking the previous posts for this film, I realized what had happened, Then I decided not to post the video clip of the song on YT. And the link that I am using in this post for now, is the audio upload of this song by Sa Re Ga Ma.
[Ed Note: The video clip of the song is now added on Vimeo, as suggested by Atul ji. The link is added below.]

And so, with this song, today we add the 1959 film ‘Bus Conductor’ to the list of films having all their songs showcased on our blog.

The film is a production from the banner of Sharda Films, Bombay, produced by Ashok Bhambri. It is a social drama, directed by Dwarka Khosla. The cast of actors, as listed in the Geet Kosh, reads like – Shyama, Premnath, Amarnath, Maruti, Satish Batra, Sujata, Umesh Sharma, Ramlal, Khairati, Narbada Shankar, Ameer Bano, Sadhna, Surya Kumari, Helen, Kanchanmala, Sheela Vaz and Cuckoo. An interesting aside here. Maruti, whose name appears in the list actors, plays the role of a dance teacher in the film. He is the friend of the hero, played by Premnath. As I was watching the credits of the film, I discovered that the story of this film is written by Maruti himself.

The film has six songs. All the songs are written by Noor Devasi. And the music has been composed by the duo of Bipin-Babul. The five songs of this film posted earlier, are listed below.

Dil Se Main Mujh Se Dil Takra Gaya Bus Conductor 1491 23-Jun-09
Zindagi Mein Rang Bhara Hai Pyaar Ka Bus Conductor 10550 29-Nov-14
Man Mein Tere Kyaa Hai Bataa De Gori Bus Conductor 12625 27-Nov-16
Daanv Chalne Ko Hai Bus Conductor 13613 26-Sep-17
Paas Hamaare Aaiye Bus Conductor 13909 12-Jan-18

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle, and in the film it is presented as a dream sequence. Shyama is sleeping, and she sees a dream in which she is singing this song, as she plays the sitar, and that she is also dancing to this song. The sequence is filmed as alternating shots that show Shyama playing the sitar and singing, and also dancing simultaneously. Surely possible in a dream sequence only.

As I was checking out the earlier posts, I came across the query from Atul ji himself, as to what is the ‘Bus Conductor’ connection in the film. So I checked out the video. The role of the bus conductor in the film is played by Premnath, who is otherwise a rich person, belonging to an affluent family. The reason that he goes underground and becomes a bus conductor, is explained in the beginning of the film.

Premnath belongs to a very rich family of landlords. He is an aspiring writer, albeit an unsuccessful one. He writes short stories, and sends them for publication to different magazines. His stories are always getting rejected. And so he makes a decision that he will leave his home and its luxuries, and live like a common person, search for a job, and work to earn a living – all this for a learning experience of life, so that he is able to genuinely write about life and people, and make his stories more convincing.

There is an emotionally charged scene in the beginning of the film, in which we see him receive some more rejections in mail, and we see an outburst in which he tells his bhabhi (wife of elder brother) that he is leaving home, and will return only when he has achieved success as a writer. He declares that he forgoes all the comforts and luxuries of his rich-person life, will go out into the world to fend for himself, get a firsthand experience of a common man’s life, and write about it. With this loud and emotionally charged declaration, he departs from his home to start a new life incognito. I must add that the performance by Premnath in this scene, did not sound very convincing to me.

So he leaves his luxuries and finds a job as a bus conductor. The rest of the film is about his interactions with people. He makes friends with Maruti, who lives in a chawl and dreams about being a choreographer in films. He meets Shyama who is also from a rich family, but is forced to ride a bus one day when her car breaks down. She forgets her bag on the bus, giving an opportunity to the make-believe bus conductor to play the honest good Samaritan and take the bag to her home. Which of course leads to more things, as expected.

He also witnesses a murder, as one passenger alighting from his bus is pushed under the wheels of the bus itself – he tries to chase the culprit but is unable to apprehend him. The person behind the murder is connected with Shyama’s family, and story gets into the expected filmy complexities.

Of course, all is well in the end, as the rich girl gets a rich husband to be, the murder is solved and the culprit apprehended – rather killed as he runs on to a railway track as he is being chased by the hero and the police. If the writer wrote a new story and it got published; I must have missed that sequence in the quick review that I did of this film. And the rich-boy-masqerading-as-a-poor-boy returns home to his luxuries with his lady love.

On the whole, it is quite an un-convincing plot, with equally un-convincing performances. And as is always the case, it is the songs that draw us.

But nonetheless, one more film to be Yippeee’d on our blog.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is the first birth date, after the death of a personality who passed away at the age of 79 in December 2017. He retired from in front of the camera in 1999 after nearly 58 years of active Bollywood life. Amitabh Bachchan held him in high esteem and was always grateful to him for co-starring in ‘Deewar’ (1975) in a kind of second-hero role inspite of being much more senior and popular actor at the time when that film was being made.

Yes, today Shashi Kapoor would have turned 80. It is really saddening to remember him today. Infact, this last six to twelve months have been bad to fans of Bollywood; having lost personalities/ celebrities like Om Puri, Vinod Khanna, Sridevi, Shashi Kapoor etc. expectedly and unexpectedly. Vinod Khanna and Shashi Kapoor were ill for sometime but Om Puri’s and Sridevi’s deaths were shocking. But we never know what god has in store for us.

But let us snap out of this mood and enjoy the song with this post. It is from the 1983 film ‘Bandhan Kachchey Dhaagon Ka’. It is a song in the voice of Usha Uthup, Asha Bhonsle and Suresh Wadkar. It has music by Hemant Bhonsle, and lyrics by Anjaan. The movie was produced by KC Sharma and written and directed by Anil Sharma. The movie explored the relation between a happily married couple when faced with a new unexpected entrant in their life. Actually the husband is unaware that he has a son from a previous girlfriend (I don’t remember exactly if it is a previous girlfriend or an encounter with a particularly beautiful business associate). The child’s mother, Zeenat Aman, is bringing up the child as a single parent when she discovers she is terminally ill. So she sends the child across to its father without telling the child that “this is your father”. But the situation, much like in ‘Masoom’ (also in 1983) is enough to topple the apple cart of the family which takes the couple up to the threshold of divorce.

This movie came when Shashi Kapoor was looking younger than his age. When he was living a much-loved life. It never showed in his acting or his countenance that he was worried about his sick wife Jennifer. But when she died of cancer Shashi Kapoor was so heart broken that he suddenly aged, gained weight for a movie-role and then didn’t bother to loose it. Suddenly he was seen in fatherly and grand-fatherly roles when he was only  in his 40s and then took complete retirement from movies in 1999 at the age of 60. And then he was seen regularly at Mumbai’s Prithvi Theatre which he had set up with his wife. The last Bollywood movie he was seen in was ‘Akela’.

Remembering him today with this song in which he seen enjoying himself with Kalpana Iyer, Zeenat Aman and a group of rain dance revellers. And please note he has different dancing style in this song. 🙂

The film that we are bringing to the Yippeee-land today, has been waiting for the final song for the last almost three years. The 1970 film ‘Maa Ka Aanchal’ had made its debut on the blog on 10th May, 2012. Exactly three years later, on 10th May, 2015, the fifth song of this film was posted. As I look at these dates, I am tempted to defer this posting to 10th May, just to complete a sequence. But then I thought better of it. 🙂

Given below is the list of five songs from this film that have preceded today’s post, accounting for all the songs listed for this film.

Jaane Kyaa Haal Ho Kal Sheeshe Ka Maikhaane Ka Maa Ka Aanchal 5949 10-May-12
Maa Hai Muhabbat Ka Naam Maa Ka Aanchal 6129 25-Jun-12
Tere Jhoothhe Waade Ka Aitbaar Kiya Maa Ka Aanchal 9240 4-Jan-14
Bhanwar Mein Meri Naiyya Maa Ka Aanchal 9482 22-Feb-14
Maa Kaa Aanchal Laadle Daaman Hai Bhagwaan Ka Maa Ka Aanchal 11115 10-May-15

The film is produced under the banner of Harintaraj films, Bombay, and is directed by Jagdev Bhambri. The cast of actors, as listed in Geet Kosh, is given as Sanjeev Kumar, Anjana, Abhi Bhattacharya, Leela Mishra, Jagdev, Sheela R, Satpal Nishan, Sushma, Johnny Whisky, V Gopal, Gopal Sehgal, Rajkumar Dutt, Deenanath, Abdul, and Master Ratan.

There is a total of six songs in the film. All the songs are written by Kaifi Azmi. The music is from the mind of Madan Mohan. One song of this film “Maa Hai Mohabbat Ka Naam”, is a solo in Rafi Sb’s voice. The remaining 5 songs are all solos, sung by Asha Bhosle. As it today’s song. The video of this song is not available, although the film seems to be in public domain. So I am not able to comment on the on screen picturization. From the way lyrics are presented, it sounds like a mujra song. But then we already have one mujra song in the film – “Tere Jhoothhe Waade Ka Aitbaar Kiya”. Then possibly this could be a romantic song or a seduction song, I cannot say for sure. I request other knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

The song itself is a treat of sheer poetry. It has two long antaraas, which are beautiful verses with very little repetition of lines. The mukhda itself is just this short title as noted in the post. The verses are an expression of being high on life and happiness – “Waqt Meharbaan Hai” – and so let us drink and be merry. 🙂

This sixth song today has been an elusive and fruitless search online. Of course, I have been marked as being in error earlier, so I cannot claim that my search method is perfect. But as far as I could make out online, this song is not available as yet. I am uploading this today; with the hope that someone may not revert to me with the message – hey, this is available here and here. 🙂

So with this song we come to the final posting for this film, and we welcome ‘Maa Ka Aanchal’ (1970) to the group of films that are Yippeee’d on our blog.

Song – Waqt Meharbaan Hai  (Maa Ka Aanchal) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics -Kaifi Azmi, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

dilon ka imtihaan hai
dilon ka imtihaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

saji hai bazm e naaz bhi
chhide huye hain saaz bhi
saji hai bazm e naaz bhi
chhide huye hain saaz bhi
zabaan pe dil ka raaz bhi
nazar hai dil nawaaz bhi
kabhi nazar mila ke pee
kabhi nazar jhuka ke pee
dikha ke pee
jhuka ke pee
magar qareeb aa ke pee
behak gaya to darr nahin
ke ji ko kuchh khabar nahin
qareeb abhi sehar nahin
ke raat abhi jawaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

ye daur hai shabaab ka
shabaab ka sharaab ka
ye daur hai shabaab ka
shabaab ka sharaab ka
sawaal ka jawaab ka
sila na dhoondh khwaab ka
ke khwaab ki ye titliyaan
kabhi yahaan kabhi wahaan
bhatak na jaaye kaarwaan
kadam kahaan nazar kahaan
jahaan bhi dil machal gaye
sitaare sab pighal gaye
naye charaag jal gaye
zameen bhi aasmaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai
waqt meharbaan hai

‘क’ – कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

ना जाने कौन ये आवाज़ देता है॰ ॰ ॰

The sounds of his voice keep reverberating in the valleys of the mind – the voice that carries a million musical memories of an entire lifetime, unforgettable.

Today’s song in this series is a delightful exchange of young hearts in love. The film is ‘Salaam Memsaab’ from 1961. On screen, the song is performed by a very young Subiraj, and a very enchanting Kum Kum. It is always such a joy to watch Kum Kum on screen with that scintillating smile and the twinkle in the eyes that goes along with it. In a chirpy naughty mood, her expressions and her movements are such a pleasure to see. However, in this clip, I must say, her dance movements are just the typical signature dance steps of Bhagwan. Now Bhagwan is also in this film, and it is a matter of conjecture whether he had some say in the choreography and songs picurization. Maybe he did, the steps in this clip are so very much Bhagwan.

The film is produced by an entity that is called the Young Technicians Unit – Baria Films, and is directed by K Parvez. The star cast is listed as

Kumkum, Subiraj, KN Singh, Sheikh, Bhagwan, Meena, Wasi Khan, Arvind Kumar, Ahmed Patni, S Malik, Bir, and Naazi. Music for this film is composed by Ravi. The eight songs in this film are written by four songwriters – Asad Bhopali, SH Bihari, Priyadarshi and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. This particular song is from the pen of Asad Bhopali.

The singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle. The song is a lover’s tete-a-tete with the young Subiraj pursuing Kum Kum. At first, he is responsible for making her fall, then he tries to appease her by asking her “कहिए कैसा मिजाज है॰॰॰”.

A fun song, that is also such a wonderful melodious memory from the radio listening days. Listen and enjoy.

Lyrics

kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey
nahin nahin aapko samajhne lagey
o kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey
nahin nahin aapko samajhne lagey
o kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka

jis din se pyaar hua
dil beqaraar hua
jeena dushvaar hua teri kasam
jis din se pyaar hua
dil beqaraar hua
jeena dushvaar hua teri kasam
yun na sataaya karo
dil na jalaaya karo
kasmen na khaaya karo jhoothe sanam
tera deewaana hoon teri kasam
kya bharosa hai mardon ki zaat ka
kya iraada hai aakhir janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey
nahin nahin aapko samajhne lagey
kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka

nazron ne jaan liya
dil ne pehchaan liya
lo hum ne maan liya apna tumhen
nazron ne jaan liya
dil ne pehchaan liya
lo hum ne maan liya apna tumhen
mushkil se baat bani
dil ko bas hai ye khushi
tumne samjha to sahi apna mujhe
dekho ji aise na dekho hamen
o saara jhagdha tha itni si baat ka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey
nahin nahin aapko samajhne lagey
o kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka

ye rut ye pyaara samaan
dil ki duniya hai jawaan
ye baaten roz kahaan jaane wafaa
ye rut ye pyaara samaan
dil ki duniya hai jawaan
ye baaten roz kahaan jaane wafaa
aise mein dil bhi mera
masti mein jhoom utha
halka halka sa nasha chhaane laga
ab zindagi ka mazaa aane laga
kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka
arey arey aap to bigadne lagey
nahin nahin aapko samajhne lagey
kahiye kaisa mizaaj hai aapka
hum se kya vaasta hai janaab ka

aaa aaa aaaa aaaaa
ho ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
aaa aaa aaaa aaaaa
ho ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
aaa aaa aaaa aaaaa
ho ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
ओ कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
ओ कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

जिस दिन से प्यार हुआ
दिल बेक़रार हुआ
जीना दुश्वार हुआ तेरी कसम
जिस दिन से प्यार हुआ
दिल बेक़रार हुआ
जीना दुश्वार हुआ तेरी कसम
यूं ना सताया करो
दिल ना जलाया करो
कसमें ना खाया करो झूठे सनम
तेरा दीवाना हूँ तेरी कसम
क्या भरोसा है मर्दों की ज़ात का
क्या इरादा है आखिर जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

नज़रों ने जान लिया
दिल ने पहचान लिया
लो हमने मान लिया अपना तुम्हें
नज़रों ने जान लिया
दिल ने पहचान लिया
लो हमने मान लिया अपना तुम्हें
मुश्किल से बात बनी
दिल को है बस ये खुशी
तुमने समझा तो सही अपना मुझे
देखो जी ऐसे नहीं देखो हमें
ओ सारा झगड़ा था इतनी से बात का
हम से क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका

ये रुत ये प्यारा समां
दिल की दुनिया है जवां
ये बातें रोज़ कहाँ जान ए वफा
ये रुत ये प्यारा समां
दिल की दुनिया है जवां
ये बातें रोज़ कहाँ जान ए वफा
ऐसे में दिल भी मेरा
मस्ती में झूम उठा
हल्का हल्का सा नशा छाने लगा
अब ज़िंदगी का मज़ा आने लगा
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का
अरे अरे आप तो बिगड़ने लगे
नहीं नहीं आपको समझने लगे
कहिए कैसा मिज़ाज है आपका
हमसे क्या वास्ता है जनाब का

आss आss आsss आssss
हो ओs ओs ओs ओs ओs
आss आss आsss आssss
हो ओs ओs ओs ओs ओs
आss आss आsss आssss
हो ओs ओs ओs ओs ओs
