Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The heart must have missed a beat – on reading the title of this post. Goodness. . . this wonderful iconic song, 65 years ago – it captured the imagination and the hearts of a generation, nay, many a generation of young hearts in love. This unforgettable song is imprinted on the sands of memory, never to be erased by any winds that may blow, till the end of life.

The golden age of melody was at its peak. The manner in which Shailendra knit together the words and lines of this love song – cannot be and has not been bettered since. The melody and the orchestration conceived by Shanker Jaikishan – the arrangement of the instruments, the preludes, the interludes, the rhythm – everything just perfect in this song. The renditions – Manna Da and Lata – the voices working together seamlessly – rising and falling in unison, and in apposition, complementing, merging – the “aa haa haa” lines going up all the way to the clouds. The lines

pyaar jo toota
saath jo chhoota

receding into the depths of somber apprehensions, and then suddenly a rising declaration of a resolution,

chaand na chamkega kabhi

the rendition volume going up all the way to the moon. The resolve expressed with such a dignified confidence in the nature’s machinations. The moon – no it will never stop shining, and thus, by implication, this love will never be broken, this companionship will never part. And suddenly, instinctively, unknowingly there is a lump in the throat and a warm moisture on the corners of the eyelids. Yes, yes – that is what love is – the poet, the music-waala, the singers – yes, they have got it just right, on the dot. Yes that is what love is, what it ought to be. Such noble souls lived in that golden era – who could feel it right, and conjure up an imagination, combining the words, the music and the sound – and then tell it to us so simply – that no further discourse would be necessary.

I am reminded of another quintessential song from the same film –

ramaiya vasta vaiya
maine dil tujhko diya

And once again, the simplest of words, the simplest verse one can conjure up – and there is no better way, no better words invented, before or since, to say – I love you.

And the scene, the depiction – the conceptualization – a master presenter is at work here. Here is an emotional entanglement coming to fruition in the hearts of two young people, almost at the very bottom of the ladder of social significance. A part time employee at a laundry, who has “borrowed” a suit that has come for cleaning, and his shoes are in tatters. A self employed teacher, who gives basic education to the underprivileged children in the backyard of her own home. But then love does not check on social status, or verify your bank balances, before making a burrow into the hearts. That love is simple. That love is without embellishments. That love is honest and innocent. That simply is love, and it happens, just happens.

The overcast skies, the lashing rains, the amused witness – the chaiwaala (tea seller), the incidental umbrella, the handy tootle that the young man plays, the happenstance of three cheruby toddlers in raincoats – all put together in a scenario that simply cannot now be erased from the memory’s palette.

The emotional expressions of the leading pair are just as consummate and accomplished as the scenario itself. The sharing of the umbrella becomes such a pivotal exchange. The young man offers it to the lady. And she hands it back, seeing him getting drenched. He takes it, but then sees that she is in the same plight, so immediately offers it back to her. She once again takes it, and with a helplessness writ large on her face, sees him getting drenched once again. And then the inevitable happens. With her eyes clenched, and her lips trembling with apprehension, she inches closer to him – dawning of the realization that one must share when there is a need. And the two come close now, holding the same umbrella – realizing that in love, one has to share, one has to hold together, and one has to steady each other against the squall of the winds and outpourings of this ruthless world.

And then the song begins – question by the young man, not specifically directed at her, but at himself too. And the lady answers, for both of them together – “. . . Maaloom Nahin Hai Kahaan Manzil . . .”. One of the supreme examples of cinema at its very best, in telling about emotions that shake a heart when the love is just starting to take baby steps in there. Marvellous . . . simply marvelous – much more than the best of the words can express.

Um. . . kind of got carried away with the original. 🙂

25 years after the release of the original, this song was used once again in the 1979 film ‘Salaam Memsaab’. And the manner of use is so very innovative. A little earlier, back in 1970, when ‘Mera Naam Joke’ was released, at the beginning of part II we see Raj Kapoor at the Bombay Carnival, hosting a bioscope stand, singing “Kehta Ha Joker, Saara Zamaana. . .”. And as he sings, he is operating the bioscope in which we are treated to clips of his earlier films, especially ‘Awaara’ and ‘Shri 420’. It is fun to watch those clips in fast forward mode.

In ‘Salaam Memsaab’, a similar presentation is used. A little background. Radha (role played by Zarina Wahab) and Sunder (role played by Asrani) are two young people, friends and in love. They are the street tamaasha people who sing and dance on the roadside to earn their living. Sunder has high aspirations, and wants to become rich quickly. Radha also has aspirations, but she is averse to making compromises with her principles of honesty and truthfulness. They work together, but this difference in their view of life generates arguments.

Near the beginning of the film, just about half hour into it, Radha chances to see a bioscope man, playing his machine near the Gateway of India. She gets in line and starts watching – she gets in when the song “Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua Hai. . .” is starting to play. We can see her enjoying the show, and then as the lead pair comes on at the beginning of the song, she gets into a different dreamy dimension of fantasy, and instead of seeing Raj Kapoor and Nargis on the screen, she sees herself and Sunder there, performing the same song, singing and expressing their newly discovered love for each other. She is fascinated, and the entire song is replayed on the screen in front of her, performed now by the two new lovers.

This is a very innovative presentation. In the singing parts of the clip, we can see Radha and Sunder performing, and in the other parts of the clip, the director uses the original footage and scenes. The entire song moves back and forth between the now Radha and Sunder, and the earlier scenes. Very interestingly edited and put together. E.g. when the line “Phir Bhi Rahengi Nishaaniyan” is playing, the scene clips back to the original version and we see the three toddlers with raincoats, toddling through the rain. Readers may recall that in the original version, the three kids are the children of Raj Kapoor – Ritu, Randhir and Rishi. The clip cuts back and forth between the current version, shown in subdued colors and shades, and the original version shown in black and white. Very intelligently designed.

In her dream of wide open eyes, Radha sees herself and Sunder, in an exact image of the hero and heroine on screen. As one watches their movements and expressions, the effort has been made to create an exact replica not just of the scenario, but also of the performance and expressions. You can open up two windows in the video playing software, and play the two songs, this one and the original, side by side. One is amazed by the effort made by Zarina and Asrani to replicate the performance as nearly as possible. Ah, we know it is not Raj Kapoor and it is not Nargis. But still it is a very impressive performance to see.

The film ‘Salaam Memsaab’ is produced under the banner of Roshan Films, Bombay and is directed by Asrani himself. The cast of actors includes Asrani, Zarina Wahab, Ranjeet, Manju Bansal, Rahman, Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Jugnu, Leela Mishra, Sulochana (Senior), Tom Alter, CS Dubey, Arvind Rathore, Anand Girdhar, Amol Sen, Dilip Tahil, Nilu Arora, Master Jeetu, Yusuf, and Raju, with friendly appearances by Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Yogita Bali, and Rishi Kapoor. The songs of this film are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and the music is by RD Burman. Seven songs are listed for this film which have been rendered by Mohamed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.

This song, being a reuse, is not listed in Geet Kosh. And as I mentioned in an earlier episode of this series, it is not easy to track down such re-use songs, unless one has actually seen the film(s). I had also written that since I started this series, I have been getting inputs from many friends, from our bandwagon and also from others in our music lovers group, about such reuse songs. Since these songs are generally not listed, such inputs from friends has really added many interesting reuse scenarios that I was not aware of.

Today’s song was sent in as a suggestion from Anekant ji. He is a regular contributor in our comments section, and I am sure all are familiar with him. Not being aware of this reuse song, I am delighted to get this input from him. A real wonderful song, and a real wonderful reuse after twenty five years – from 1954 to 1979 to 2019 – and forty more, when we are now reading about it once again. 🙂

A reuse that takes you into a fantasy land of a dream of wide awake eyes. I am sure all of us have had some similar experience some time or another in our lives. Apologies for the digression, but I just remembered another such on screen ‘dream of wide awake eyes’ which I just cannot resist mentioning. 🙂 For all those who have seen and remember ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1972). Yes, I am referring to the song “Jaaneman Jaaneman Tere Do Nayan”. Amol Palekar is watching the film in a theatre. Onscreen the song is being performed by Dharmendra and Hema Malini. And within a few seconds, Amol Palekar goes into this ‘dream of wide awake eyes’, and through his eyes, we see the song being performed on screen by himself and Vidya Sinha. The reverie is quiet painfully broken as the villain appears at the end of the song and hits the hero with a belt. (Just from that split second profile, my feeling has been that it was actor Manmohan, the villain I mean.)

Ah so, we have a new category of songs to mull over – ‘dream of wide awake eyes’. And I am sure the readers will recall many such songs in Hindi films – yes, we do that a lot. 🙂

Enjoy today’s wonderful reuse treat and let’s wait for the next – what more such entertaining surprises are coming up.

India is a country of festivals. India is also a country of colours. So, it follows naturally that there should be a festival of colours as well in India. Indeed that is the case and that festival is called Holi.

Today (21 march 2019) is Holi, the festival of colour. Holi is the most favourite festival as far as Hindi aand other Indian language movies are concerned. This festival offers all the opportunities that Hindi movie makers so look forward to, viz to slip in a song and dance situation.

Hindi movie makers want a situation where both genders should be seen dancing together, teasing each other, taking liberties with each other, and yet the other party not objecting- this festival offers all these opportunities, possibilities and more. No wonder Hindi (and Indian) movie makers have utilised Holi festival opportunities to the full and continue to do so. Even new Hindi movies, who are otherwise known for forgettable songs in them continue to come up with Holi songs that manage to be longer lasting that other songs of the movie. Take the example of the Holi song that Sudhir Jee posted first thing in the morning. It is a song from 2013. I was not aware of this song and even Sudhir Jee became aware of the song only a while back, but what a song it is! Here is a song from this century where lyrics is the star just like how it used to be in the Golden era of HFM.

This is the eleventh Holi for this blog. Since this festival is the MFF (most favourite festival) of Hindi movies so one can be certain to have a steady supply of Holi festival songs to cover in the blog, even though we have already covered most well known Holi songs including timeless Holi songs.

As many as 57 Holi songs have been covered in the blog so far on 10 previous occasions, which works out to a whopping average of nearly six holi festival songs each year (5.7 per holi day, to be precise)! It is a higher average than the daily post average of the blog (3.8 songs per day) at the moment.

Different festivals remain topical for different duration of time. If we do not post a writeup within this time then the post loses its relevance. In case of Holi, it is the first half of the day mostly when people are mostly in festive mood, though it spills over to the afternoon as well. Same is the case for Republic day and Independence day as well, where Indians feel at their most patriotic during the first half of the day !

It is already afternoon, and I should have been prompt like Sudhir Jee, who scheduled his Holi festival song for posting early in the morning , after dong all the writeup earlier. I, on the other hand find myself behaving like a student who is trying hard to study his text books after the time is all but over. 🙂

I have Prakashchandra for my rescue though. He has sent so many Holi festival songs that they will easily last me a few more Holi festivals.

If Sudhir Jee chose a Holi song from 21st century, I have chosen a Holi festival song from 1981, when the Golden Era of HFM had just ended and baton was being exchanged between Golden era artists and non golden era artists so to say.

“Aapas Ki Baat”(1981) was produced by Salim Akhtar and directed by Harmesh Malhotra for Citizen pictures, Bombay. The movie had Raj Babbar, Poonam Dhillon,Shakti Kapoor, Bharat Kapoor, Huma Khan, Narendranath, Asrani,Dina Pathak, Purnima,Abhi Bhattacharya, Kalpana Iyer, Madhu Malhotra, Bhushan Tiwari,Janaki Dass,Ajay, Sunder, Azad Irani, Rammurti Chatrurvedi, Sunder Taneja, Dolly, Khushboo,Moolchand, Kirti,Goga Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it.

This Holi song from “Aapas Ki Baat”(1981) is the first song from the movie to get covered in the blog. This song is sung by the Golden Era singers viz Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle with chorus. Lyrics are by Anjaan. Music is composed by Anu Malik.

The song is picturised on Raj Babbar and Kalpana Iyer with lots of other dancers. Asrani, Moolchand, Bhooshan Tiwari etc are prominently visible alongwith others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who as is his wont, specially mentioned that the audio is a bit longer than the video version. Incidentally the video of this song has ended up becoming rare to find.

With this song, “Aapas Ki Baat”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Holi.

‘Dhongee’ (censor certificate 23-12-1976), was a movie directed by Ashok Roy and produced by Kant Kumar productions. It seems to have had a delayed release (Wikipedia says it was released 4th May 1979). It has a starcast of Randhir Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Asrani, Sujit Kumar, Farida Jalal, Iftikhar, and Premnath. Rakesh Roshan had a friendly appearance. The lyricist to this movie was Anand Bakshi and music director was Rahul Dev Burman. The movie had five songs and Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar were the playback singers. One song of this film – “Haaye Re Haaye Tera Ghunghta” – has been posted earlier, as a contribution by Pamir Harvey where a brief outline of the movie is provided. This song is popular to this day. I remember that sometime in the late 90s or early 2000 there was a remix version to this song which triggered the memory of this song. As I sat to write this post I discovered that there has been another version of this song which has been used in a recent movie titled ‘Paisa Vasool’ (2004) – I don’t know anything about this recent movie.

Continuing after seeing the movie 🙂

So, ‘Dhongee’ is the usual masaala stuff, with a brother (Randhir Kapoor) and sister (Farida Jalal) loving and helping each other with wooing their prospective fathers-in-laws (Raj Mehra and Satyen Kappu). The brother’s aim is to fulfil his ‘dead’ father’s promise to the groom’s father and see that his sister lives a happy married life. On the way to fulfilling this he meets with an accident and ‘dies’. The insurance amount that his sister gets post the brother’s death is used by his fiancée (Neetu Singh) and her father to get the sister married. This is one part of the movie. But it is not even ‘interval time’ in the movie. Now begins the tale. The brother has actually survived the accident, has been unconscious for about 2 months, tended by a Nepali Gurkha – typically named Bahadur; recovers just in time to remember his sister’s wedding date; rushes home to witness the wedding without being seen by anyone. Now he is guilt-ridden that he has cheated the insurance company and is ready to do any activity that will earn him the money to repay the insurance. Here Bahadur steps in, suggests a name and location change & sends him to Nepal. Randhir Kapoor (Anand) is intrigued that random people around Kathmandu recognise him and escort him to a palace. After a few scenes that show the goings-on in the palace it is revealed that the palace is the headquarters for printing fake notes, belongs to Bahadur alias John and Anand has been cleverly sweet-talked into standing-in for the actual John (Premnath – it was the period when he used to play the BADMAN). Additionally, it is also revealed that the ‘dead’ father is a captive in the palace; the fiancée reaches Kathmandu (on duty, being an air-hostess); sees Anand; goes back; reports to the sister and then the whole family comes to help and rescue the father and brother and finish the movie. The songs are spread through the movie with a mandatory dance with the villain – Premnath is made to sing and dance.

Remembering Premnath today on his birth anniversary, he would have been 92. He was already the cute roly-poly fisherman – Braganza (‘Bobby’, 1973)- when I first became aware of the actor. And through the 70s he was Rai Saab Bhupendra Singh (‘Johnny Mera Naam’, 1970) Khan Badshah (‘Shor’, 1972), Dharmdas ‘Dharmatma‘ (‘Dharmatma’, 1975), IG Khanna (‘Kalicharan’, 1976), Sir Juda (‘Karz’, 1980) etc. I don’t remember having seen any of his movies where he had played a hero. I remember my father was a fan of the songs pictured on him in Raj Kapoor’s ‘Barsaat’ (1949) – “Patli Kamar Hai Tirchhi Nazar Hai“; “Main Gareebon Ka Dil Hoon Watan Ki Zabaan” from ‘Aab-e-Hayaat’ (1955) and “Main Raahi Bhatakne Waala Hoon” from ‘Baadal’ (1951). I recently discovered Vodafone Play – an app offered by Vodafone – which has a section dedicated to old movies, and I discovered ‘Saaqi’ (1952) – an interesting Arabian Nights type fantasy film where he co-starred with Madhubala.

Today’s song has Premnath sharing screen space with Randhir Kapoor (his nephew – ‘bhaanja’, in real life) and Neetu Singh, and shaking a leg outside the Kathmandu temple. I think this was a popular song in the past. Amit Kumar is the playback for Premnath.

The songs covered so far included one club song, one expression of love song and one mujra cum diversion song. If one has some experience of Hindi movie songs, then onecan easily guess the genre of the missing song. If there is a club song and a mujra song then where is a song sung by the housewife , singing about domestic bliss ? 🙂

Indeed, the fourth and the final song from “Charitraheen”(1974) is a pativrata Bharteeya naari” genre of song. 🙂 It is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised on Yogita Bali and Sanjeev Kumar, with Asrani also briefly visible.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Charitraheen”(1974) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Lyrics

jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai

jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din main raaja banuga
tera hi tota kehta hai

sooraj ho balwaan

yaaron banta hai wo sikandar
sooraj ho balwaan
tez chandar

powerful hon grah
tabhi to kar lenge maal andar
jogi
jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din main raaja banoonga

ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai

mitne ko har cheez mit jaaye
haathon se rekha na jaaye
mitne ko har cheez mit jaaye
haathon se rekha na jaaye
aji mutthi mein hai kismat apni
phir tu kyon ghabraaye
jogi
jogi o jogi
bhaag mein mere likha hai
ek din tu raaja banega
tera hi tota kehta hai
ek din main raaja banoonga
tera hi tota kehta hai

June 27th (2016) is a date with RD Burman. It is his 77th birth anniversary. We know so many things about RD Burman by heart. We don’t require a wikipedia or any other site to tell us that he was son of SD Burman the music director of the golden era. We need no site to tell us that Ashok Kumar was the one who gave him the nickname Pancham. We know that he used to be addressed as Panchamda. We know that he had a knack of making music with a spoon and a glass like he did for the song from “Yaadon Ki Baraat”– Churaa liya hai tumne jo dil ko. He had worked with all the best song writers and singers of his time. He was comfortable giving music based on ragas or western beats.
