Blog Day :

4991 Post No. : 16885

Today (18 march 2022), the blog had two guest posts so far, and both pertained to Holi. That created some confusion in my mind. I was under the impression that Holika dahan is on the night of 18/19 march and Holi is on 19 march 2022. To add to my confusion, I found out that Railway HQ in Southern Railway, Chennai was open today on 18 march 2022. It turns out that I was out of phase by one day from others. It turns out that even Chennai celebrates holiday today. It is only Southern Railway HQ in Chennai that has decided to work on this day. 🙂

When one looks at the festival category (on the right side of the blog), one finds that the blog has as many as 67 Holi related songs. The second most popular festival is Deepaawali (38 songs) and then Rakhi (24 songs). Looking at the nature of the festivals, it is not very difficult to guess why Holi is the most popular festival for Hind movie makers. It gives then a genuine reason to indulge in a song and dance sequence full of box office hit ingredients, viz color, revelry, two genders dancing together and getting wet thanks to coloured water sprinkled on them from pichkaari.

Even in real life, this festival is popular for similar reasons. And it is popular among trouble makers as well.

On this day, trains remain empty. It is so unlike the occasion of Deepaawali when trains run to full capacity and you cannot have berths in trains. I, not averse to act diferent from the masses, had once (nearly four decades ago)travelled by train on the day of Holi from Jamalpur to Patna and then from Patna to Ranchi. On normal days entering the train itself was a tall order. But on that day, I was perhaps the only occupant of those trains.

With 67 Holi songs under the belt of the blog, some people may feel that we have run out of Holi songs to cover. Nothing can be farther from the truth. There are still lots and lots of Holi songs that are not yet covered in the blog. I have already mentioned it earlier that HOli is the most popular festival among movie makers, and so Holi related songs keep appearing in Hindi movies even today. This genre of song is unlikely to go out of fashion in Hindi movies.

Prakashchandra himself has singlehandedly sent me dozens of Holi realted songs. Moreover, I have discovered some more Holi songs on my own. All these supply of Holi songs will last us for many Holi festivals. 🙂

The Holi song that accompanies this post is from “Banjaarin”(1960). This movie was produced and directed by Ratan KUmar for Ratan Produced by Ratan Kumar for Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini (Debutant), Lalita Kumari, Sunder, Indira Bansal, Chetan Kumar, Shree Bhagwan, Dalpat (in triple role), T.N.Sinha, Bagla, Murari, Prayag Dutt, Hari, Kapoor, Polson, Master Papoo, Bela, Paro, Laxminarayan, Rehana, Geeta, Meera etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Banjaarin”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pardesi (or Pardeshi).

The song is picturised as a Holi festivity song on Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini, Lalita Kumari Sinha, Indira Bansal etc.

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

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a (somewhat belated) happy and safe Holi.

Remarks:- It was pointed out by Mr Partha Chanda, our regular visitor with a keen eyae that the same song was discussed under “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) on 5 april 2020. On checking up, that indeed turned out to be the case. On further investigation, it turned out that the song was originally intended for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957), but it could not be accomodated there. Finally this song was included in “Banjaarin”(1960) which had more or less the same starcast as “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(19557) with some changes.

I thank Nahm, our regular contributor, for pointing out this fact. Since this song was composed for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) so its lyricist is Bharat Vyas and music director is S N Tripathi, unlike other songs of “Banjaarin”(1960) where Pt Madhur is the lyricist and Pardesi is the music director.

I have now replaced the earlier post of 5 april 2020 containing the same song by another Rafi Shamshad Begam duet and penned by the same lyricist (Bharat Vyas).

Blog Day : 3905 Post No. : 14961

———————————————–
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 23
————————————————

On 28th March of 2009, six songs had made their appearance on the blog. The songs and the films represented are listed below.

 

Man Darpan Hai Dushman 1939
Mitti Se Khelte Ho Patita 1953
Sach Kahta Hoon Bahut Haseen Ho Jaali Note 1960
Chanda Re Mori Patiyaan Le Jaa Banjaarin 1960
Baalamwa Bolo Na Bolo Na Picnic 1966
Yoon Na Sharmaa Phailaade Apni Gori Gori Baanhen Parwaana 1971

 

Of these six films, ‘Dushman’ (1939), ‘Patita’ (1953), ‘Jaali Note’ (1960), ‘Picnic’ (1966) and ‘Parwaana’ (1971) have been yippeee’d by now. The 1960 film ‘Banjaarin’ remains. This film has eight songs in all. Three songs have been showcased here. Today, we bring on the fourth song, on the 10th anniversary of this film’s debut here.

‘Banjaarin’ is produced by Ratan, under the banner of Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The film is a costume drama, directed by Jaswant Jhaveri.  The list of actors reads like Kanchan Kamini, Manhar Desai, Lalita Kumari, Sundar, Indira Bansal, Dalpat, Pal Sharma, Neelu, Shri Bhagwan, Bela, TN Sinha, Saroj, Murari, Paro, Prayag, Rehana, Paulson, Geeta, Chetan Kumar, Malika, Sheela R, CH Singh, Shekhar Purohit, Shriram, and S Chaddha.

The eight songs of this film are all penned by Pt Madhur. The music is by Pardesi – a lesser known artist whose name appears as music director for maybe 4 or 5 films only. The singing voice in this song is Geeta Dutt.

The video clip of this song is available. The clip is somewhat dim, and hence much details or even identification of artists on screen is not very feasible. The song is overlapped with a lot of other action in the film. The song itself seems to be a club dance song, or maybe a villain’s den song. There are a number of artists, but I am able to recognize only Sunder. I am not able to identify the main dancer in this song. Is that Sheela Ramani? I am not sure. I would request our more knowledgeable readers to please help with identification of artists.

The song is constructed well. I am hearing it for the first time today. It sure has an interesting rhythm and beat to it, and it has been rendered by Geeta Dutt with the customary zest. Listen and enjoy.

[PS: I have not been able to decipher two words in the first stanza. I request other folks to please help insert the correct words.]

Song – Qismat Ke Khel Tu Khel Khilaadi  (Banjaarin) (1960) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Pandit Madhur, MD – Pardesi

Lyrics

qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi
daanv badha josh mein

qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi

zindagi ki karwaten kaanton pe liye ja
aaya hai duniya mein to kuchh naam kiye ja
zindagi ki karwaten kaanton pe liye ja
aaya hai duniya mein to kuchh naam kiye ja
daanv badha josh mein
rehna magar hosh mein
daanv badha josh mein
rehna magar hosh mein
duniya kahe na anaadi
oo oo oo
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi

jeet kabhi haar baney
haar kabhi jeet
daanv laga zindagi ka khel ki ye reet
daanv badha josh mein
rehna magar hosh mein
daanv badha josh mein
rehna magar hosh mein
duniya kahe na anaadi
oo oo oo
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi

tu kisi se kam nahin majboor nahin hai
aur din bhi kaamyaabi ke ab door nahin hain
tu kisi se kam nahin majboor nahin hai
aur din bhi kaamyaabi ke ab door nahin hain
daanv badha josh mein
rehna magar hosh mein
daanv badha josh mein
rehna magar hosh mein
duniya kahe na anaadi
oo oo oo
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi

daanv badha josh mein

duniya kahe na anaadi
oo oo oo
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi
qismat ke khel tu khel khilaadi
