(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#10)

Today 27th November’2022 is the seventieth birth anniversary of Composer Singer Bappi Lahiri (27.11.1952-15.02.2022). He passed away this year on 15th February leaving behind the legacy of his ‘disco’ music and many other memorable songs in Hindi Film Music.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview). He has many records on his name and he has been conferred by many many awards time to time.
The first Hindi movie as a music composer was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.

I had mentioned in my earlier post on the blog that the song ‘Bambai se aaya mera dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was my first introduction with Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loud speakers or in orchestras.

After that I remember it was the songs of ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc. I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I never had watched these movies until now. But these songs had become very popular then. I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because in that summer vacation of 1983 after appearing the 10th board exams our group of friends would be listening to the songs of ‘Disco Dancer’ and ‘Nikaah-1983’ on cassette player.

Later on after getting connected with this blog and in the recent years I have come across many of his songs before the ‘disco era’ which in those years I was not aware that they were composed by him, but I liked them and have also shared few of them on the blog.

Still there are many of his songs which I get to listen on radio during my daily listening. There are many such songs which I had been listening and liking without knowing that they have been composed by Bappi Lahiri. I am trying to share them on the blog as possible.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Suraksha-1979’. Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri. I vaguely remember the posters mentioning ‘Gunmaster G-9’ of this movie in those years. I have yet to watch this movie.
This movie is going to make its debut on the blog today.

In the year ‘1979’ the following nine movies where Bappi Lahiri had composed the music were released.

Sno Name of the Film(Year) Date of Censor Board Certificate Lyricist/s
1 Aangan Ki Kali(1979) 15.05.1979 Shaily Shailendra
2 Ahsaas(1979) 23.10.1979 Indeevar, Ravindra Peepat
3 Aur Kaun?(1979) 05.01.1979 Amit Khanna
4 Do Hawaldaar(1979) 06.01.1979 Shaily Shailendra
5 Iqraar(1979) 10.09.1979 Kulwant Jani
6 Jaan E Bahaar(1979) 10.08.1979 Gauhar Kanpuri
7 Lahu Ke Do Rang(1979) 11.09.1979 Farooq Qaiser
8 Shikshaa(1979) 28.12.1978 Gauhar Kanpuri
9 Surakshaa(1979) 01.06.1979 Ramesh Pant, Farooq Qaiser

“Surakshaa-1979” was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for ‘Gopi Enterprises, Madras’.

It had Ranjeeta, Mithoon Chakravarty, Jeevan, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Mala Jaggi, Suresh Oberoi and others.

Tej Saproo and Balaji were introduced on the screen with this movie.

This movie has five songs released with seven sound tracks including one dialogue and one music sound track.

Ramesh Pant wrote four songs and Farooq Qaiser had written one song for this movie.

Today’s song is written by Farooq Qaiser. Singer of the song is Bappi Da himself with Annette and chorus.

This song is played while the titles of the movie are rolling. On screen we can see Mithoon Chakravarty lip-syncing the songs with beautiful girls around him.
This song is heard more nowadays in the musical reality shows where ever there are special episodes on Bappi Lahiri and Mithoon Chakravarty is special judge on the shows. He is a regular feature as ‘special jury’ at many such musical reality shows.

I don’t remember to have listened to this song frequently during those years when the movie was released. However this movie is said to be one of the successful movies of Mithoon Chakravarty then.

Let us now listen to today’s song and pay our tributes to Bappi Lahiri.

(Note – the second stanza mentioned below is not on the audio of this song it is played in the movie though.).

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#9 – The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

Today’s song is another Bappi Da-Kishore Kumar song which I like very much since the release of its movie. I had not watched this movie and over the years I only remember this song and one other song of this movie which is ‘naina ye barse, milne ko tarse’ which too I like very much. However I had always thought these songs as the compositions of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It was only when I noted down the lyrics of this song for presentation that I came to know that it was a composition of Bappi Lahiri and not Laxmikant Pyarelal.

There are some nice songs given by Bappi Lahiri-Kishore Kumar combination in the eighties till 1987 when Kishore Kumar passed away. I seem to have lost track of many such songs and it is only nowadays that I am getting reaquainted with them on ‘radio programmes’.

Today’s wonderful romantic Kishore Kumar song is one such song. This is from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Mohabbat’.

‘Mohabbat’ (1985) was directed by Bapu. It was produced by Inder Kumar-Ashok Thakariya.
It had Anil Kapoor, Vijayata Pandit, Amrish Puri, Shakti Kapoor, Aruna Irani, Amjad Khan, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Sundar, Shubha Khote, Satish Kaushik, Chitti Babu, Asha, Manmauji, Dev Sharma, Sehgal and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.05.1985. Movies with the same title were released in ‘1943’, and ‘1997’ as well.

We have the ‘1943-Mohabbat’ already represented on the blog.

“Mohabbat-1985” has five songs in it which all were written by Indeevar. Music for this film was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Saanson se nahin …mohabbat se chalti hai duniya Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Mehbooba paayi hai maine kaisi… Kishore Kumar
03 Zindagi mein pehla pehla toone … Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
04 Apne Laila ka jo pyaar nahin paayegaa Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, chorus
05 Naina ye barse milne ko tarse … Lata Mangeshkar, chorus

Today we are going to listen to a song sung by Kishore Kumar from this movie. This song is lip-synced by Anil Kapoor on screen. Vijayata Pandit is also seen in the picturisation. The song has been shot at some beautiful outdoor locations I think.

With today’s song this movie “Mohabbat-1985” makes its debut on the blog.

Let us listen to today’s song now…

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#8 – The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

Regulars on the blog must be remembering that I had presented some Bappi Lahiri songs on the blog.

As I said earlier I am not a big Bappi Da fan but I do like many of his compositions. There was a time which I would like to mention as ‘Justice Chaudhary-Mawaali times’ when I was irritated of the songs composed by Bappi Lahiri and didn’t like them. Even today I didn’t like many of his compositions of those years.

But then there are some Bappi Lahiri songs which I liked and was aware of them since before, and some of the songs are those which I like and I was listening to them since years, but I was not aware that they were composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Today’s song is one such song which I recently get to listen on Radio (Vividh Bharati). And I was not aware that this was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

I like this song and thought that it must have been posted on the blog earlier. But that is not the case. This song is yet to be covered on the blog. I remember olistening to this song before and I think it was quite liked by the public too. May be the movie, the song is from, didn’t do well so this song was also forgotten easily.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and that makes it more special and enjoyable and that is another reason that I like this song very much.

The song is from the movie ‘Tai Chor -1980’.

‘Taxi Chor-1980’ was directed by Sushil Vyas for ‘L.D. Enterprises, Bombay’.

It was produced by Lachhman H. Tulsiani, Prakash Bathija and Dilip J. Pariyani.

It had Zarina Wahab, Mithoon Chakravarty, Madan Puri, Abhi Bhattachaya, Bharat Bhushan, Chandrashekhar, Sajjan, Sulochana, Poornima, Indira Bansal, Bhagwan, Rajendra Nath, Dhoomal, Polson, Prem Sagar, Raj Mehra, Murad, Shaikh, Mohammad Ali, Jagdeep, Keshto Mukherjee, Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Mukri ( in special appearance) and others.

The movie also had the new discovery Anita Sarin and Brajesh.

It also had child artists Baby Lata Malik, Kiran Seth, Sagar Brothers, and Naseer.

Story of this movie ‘Taxi Chor-1980’ was written by Dilip J. Pariyani.
Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwanath Pande. Editing of this movie was done by Baburao Barodekar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.08.1980.

Anjaan was the lyricist for this movie who had written all the four songs in this movie.
Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Usha Mangeshkar, Shailendra Singh, Suresh Wadkar and Anwar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by Mithoon Chakaravarty. From the picturisation of this song it is clear the song happens in a stage show. We can also see Zarina Wahab, Jagdeep and many other female artists in the picturisation. I could not identify the other female artist in this song. (we can also see another Mithoon Chakravarty coming to watch this show 🙂 which means this movie could be having a double role of Mithoon Chakravarty. I have yet to watch this movie).

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Hullo Atuldom

28th September is the date which is deeply etched in the minds of followers of Hindi Film music. It is the birthdate of the LATA MANGESHKAR. She had a great fan following even among celebrities and in all corners of the earth.

There are pages & pages written about this legend. Every song that she has ever sung has some significance to the listener. Talk to any layman and they will have their own personal playlist featuring songs of this “nightingale”. Invariably the list will have a bhajan, aarathi at the top of the list that will be followed by songs in all moods possible.

Whatever one writes may be a repeat of what has already been written and/or said. Hence I am getting straight to a song. My quest for a song featuring S P Balasubramaniyam and Lata Mangeshkar gave me all the expected results- meaning songs featuring Salman Khan, Jeetendra etc. as also songs from some popular Rajshree Production films. Among all those results I spied a long-forgotten song which featured Rakesh Roshan and Rati Agnihotri. We shall listen to that song today .

The song is from the 1981 released, Rajashekhar directed “Jeene Ki Aarzoo”. It was produced by M. Kumaran, Balasubramanian M. and M. Saravan. That means the production house was AVM Studios of Madras. It was the last Hindi film of the production house, the first one being “Bahar” in 1951 that introduced the Hindi film audiences to a dancing actress Vyjayanthimala.

The music director for “Jeene Ki Aarzoo” was Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan the lyricist. The four songs of the film were sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and S P Balasubramaniyam. Mithun Chakravarthy, Bindiya Goswami, Rakesh Roshan, Rati Agnihotri, Keshto Mukherjee, Rajendranath, Jagdeep, Sujit Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, formed the main cast.

The film was a remake of the director’s own Kannada original “Hunnimeya Rathriyalli” (1980) I have no clue about the plot of the movie but only recall that there was a song featuring Rati in a village belle outfit where she sang about ‘raw mangoes’. Reviews about the movie on online websites say that Mithun Chakravarthy had given a sensational performance and that Rakesh Roshan was good. The reviewer also says that even if the movie itself was not mind-blowing; it was a different kind of film in times when movies were mostly full of ‘Maar-Dhaad’.

Getting on to the song, thinking of Balu sir (whose anniversary was on 25th -two years already!!) and Lata Didi.

Hullo Atuldom

A special birthday. A landmark birthday. Don’t know what it is called in other parts of the country or world; but I know it as ‘Saptadi‘ meaning 70th birthday. And this post is to wish the concerned celebrity-entertainer who is an all rounder as far as emoting is concerned. He can be a repentant son (as in ‘Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni’ (1989)), cute and lovable father (as in ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai’ (2000)), mean police officer (remember Inspector Laxman Bhide of ‘Insaaf’ (1987)) and the most lovable characters of Nandu to Raja Babu & Crime-Master Go-Go. These are just a few of the varied roles he has enacted in his 47 years in the film industry. I am sure the readers would have guessed that today is the 70th birth date of Shakti Kapoor.

Shakti Kapoor (birth name Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor) is married to Shivangi Kolhapure which makes him jija of Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini (both are actors). He is father to Shraddha Kapoor (she made her Bollywood debut in 2010) and Siddhanth Kapoor (he debuted in 2013 as an actor prior to which he was assistant to director Priyadarshan). As we can see Shakti Kapoor has passed on his passion of acting to his children too. He is an actor who is fairly good at dancing. He made a great team with Kader Khan and Asrani in the films of the 80s and 90s. For the amount of time that he has been in the public sphere there will be many of his roles, scenes, even songs filmed on him that trigger memories.

Today’s song is one such song-dance sequence which I have dug out from memory. It is from the 1987 film ‘Dance Dance’, produced and directed by B Subhash. It hads Shakti Kapoor playing friend and troupe member with upcoming singers/siblings that Mithun and Smita Patil played. He falls in love with the sister (Smita Patil) and also marries her.

The plot has Resham (Shatki Kapoor) going a little wayward after the marriage viz. having extra-marital affairs, ill-treating the pregnant wife etc. Smita Patil dies and towards the climax, Resham reforms and saves Mithun from being shot by Amrish Puri & dies.

‘Dance Dance’ had songs that were essentially dance numbers (what else, the title is a giveaway) written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri who was also the playback singer along with Vijay Benedict and Alisha Chinai. The blog already has the song “Everybody Dance With Pa Pa Pa” from this film.

With this song we also remember Lalji Pandey who passed away this date in 1997. He started his journey in Bollywood in 1953, wrote a lot of good songs through the 60s till the 90s. Many of the songs he wrote are still popular viz. “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriya Kaise Chamke“; “Aapke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Naya Noor Hai“; “Aap Ki Inaayaten Aapke Karam“; “Luk Chhip Luk Chhip Jaao Na“; “Jis Ka Koi Nahin Uska To Khuda Hai Yaaro“. If I mention “Jis Ka Mujhe Tha Intezaar” and “Khaike Paan Banaras Waala” the readers will realize that Lalji Pandey is famous as Anjaan.

He was a lyricist who worked with composers from Datta Dawjekar to OP Nayyar, RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Anu Malik, Chitragupta, and all music directors of his time

Wishing Crime-Master Go-Go a very Happy Birthday and thank you Anjaan ji for this song.

Hullo Atuldom

“Farz Ki Jung” (1989) was a movie produced by Dalwinder Sohal and directed by R.P. Swamy. It was written by Amrit Aryan and released on 17th March 1989. It had a cast of Shashi Kapoor, Dalwinder Sohal, Raza Murad, Amrish Puri, Gita Siddharth, Iftikhar, Anjana Mumtaz, Ashalata, Padma Khanna, Bob Christo, Satyen Kappu, Master Bhagwan, etc. It had Govinda and Neelam too. Music was by Bappi Lahiri and songs were written Naqsh Lyallpuri and Anjaan. Asha Bhonsle, Chandrani Mukherjee, Alisha Chinoy, Vijay Benedict, were the playback singers used. Plus a surprise singer.

The movie was a run-of -the mill story of an honest cop (Shashi kapoor) who is falsely charged with possession of drugs. His mother dies of shock. He is imprisoned and comes out of jail a changed man and becomes a criminal. The stage is now set for his younger brother (Dalwinder Sohal), who has been assigned the task of bringing the criminal to book.

I haven’t seen or heard anything about this film so I am not in a position to know what role Govinda has. But my interest was kindled when I read that this film has a song in the voice of the legendary Mohd. Rafi. (the surprise that I mentioned in a previous paragraph). Possibly it was the only highlight of this movie. I have also read that it was recorded sometime in 1980 for another movie (“Hari Bhari”, I think) which was shelved. That song found a life when it was used in this movie. Thus Govinda became the youngest actor on whom a Mohd. Rafi was filmed.

A few years back when I was looking to see if there was any song of Anil Kapoor sung by Mohd. Rafi (as Anil Kapoor had started his journey in films sometime in 1977, acting debut came in 1980). This song was the closest I could find. But Govinda seems to have been luckier than other debutants of that period- Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav, Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff etc. I don’t even know the box-office fate of this film ‘Farz Ki Jung’ but let us not delve on that.

Today on the occasion of Rafisaab’s 42nd anniversary we are having this song. I am not attempting a biography of this singer, which Hindi film music lover doesn’t know about him; even the new generation cannot escape his magic -the song from “Fanney Khan” (2018) is an example. I am not even going to list out any of my favourite songs sung by the legend for fear making a long list and still not writing out all.

As Mohd. Rafi has sung in a song of his

“Tum mujhe yun bhula na paaoge
jab kabhi bhi sunoge geet mere
sang sang tum bhi gun gunaoge”

humming his songs and thinking of The Mohd. Rafi

Hullo Atuldom

13th July is the birthdate of writer, producer, director Prakash Mehra. He would have been 83. He began his career in the late 1950s as assistant director and production controller etc. before turning director with “Haseena Maan Jayegi” in 1968 which had Babita and Shashi Kapoor in the lead. More films followed many of which were successful and super-successful, as the film industry would say “Silver Jubilees”.

One such movie was “Zanjeer” which helped Amitabh Bachchan get his foot into Bollywood. “Zanjeer” was, possibly, the first film, that brought Pran and Amitabh Bachchan together. It is said that on the heals of a successful “Samadhi” Mehra wanted to make his next with Dharmendra in the lead. But Dharmendra had to opt out due to date constraints. After knocking at the doors of all the big stars of that era Mehra went to see “Bombay To Goa” as per Pran sahab’s (as Mehra and the industry addressed Pran) suggestion; there are some who say it was Salim-Javed who made the suggestion. But whoever the trigger, ‘Talent met Talent’ (as per what Prakash Mehra used to say) – “Zanjeer” happened and an actor’s fate was sealed forever. The duo of Mehra- Bachchan went on to associate in six more ventures the last of which was “Jaadugar”in 1989.

In the remaining 16 movies that Mehra is credited as director (he is credited as director in 22 films) Dharmendra, Raaj Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Sanjay Khan, Vinod Khanna, Randhir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Navin Nischol, Vinod Mehra & Raaj Kumar’s son Puru were the male leads and Babita, Jaya Bhadhuri, Rekha, Hema Malini, Reena Roy, Saira Banu, Rakhee, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Tina Munim, Madhuri Dixit, Shabana Azmi were the female leads. That list only has those starring in movies directed by Prakash Mehra and not those that he wrote, presented or produced; if all those were included the list would have been longer.

Today’s song has Tina Munim playing Pran’s daughter (I am guessing from the lyrics of the song) who is out to shame her father for ‘his stand’ as regards her marriage. This is one kind of ‘father-character’ that Pran excelled in; as we can remember him from “Bobby” “Sharabhi” “Khuda Kasam” etc. We can see Akbar Khan (real life brother of Sanjay and Feroz Khan) as one of the party guests. The other party attendees include Birbal, Dinesh Hingoo, Vikas Anand, Brahmachari, and a bunch of chorus dancers.

This Asha Bhonsle song is written by Lalji Pandey who called himself Anjaan in Hindi Films. Bappi Lahiri was the music director of this song which is from the 1987 release “Muqaddar Ka Faisla”. Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer for the movie which had Raaj Kumar, Rakhee, Raj Babbar, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Akbar Khan, Tina Munim, Ranjeet, Bindu, Om Prakash, Satyen Kapoo, Ram Sethi (most of them regulars in any Prakash Mehra film) and Pran. I haven’t seen the film but enroute to writing this post I saw some of the movie’s songs; it looks like a typical masala film.

Remembering Prakash Mehra today on his birth anniversary and Pran Sahab on his death anniversary (which was on 12th).

As I was writing this post, I also found that Akbar Khan turned 72 last week on 7th. Wishing Akbar Khan (belatedly) for his birthday with good health and good times.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#7 – A tribute to Bappi Da!)

Bappi Da!

16th February 2022 was another sad day for the Hindi Film Music lovers after the news of Bappi Da’s passing away came. Just ten days back we had lost ‘sur-samraadni’ Lata Mangeshkar on 06.02.2022.

Bappi Lahiri passed away at the age of sixty-nine. Nobody expected that, atleast for me it was a shocking news. I had missed the earlier news of his being hospitalized and he was there at the hospital for 29 days, and then was released for his home. But he had to rush back to the hospital again, as Bappi Da’s condition deteriorated.

Whatever be the reason, nobody was ready for this news. Just couple of months back (or less than that, I am forgetting) he was there at ‘Zee TV Sa re ga ma’ show. I had watched this program. Bappi Da’s grandson was also there on this show.

I may not be a great fan of Bappi Lahiri, but I am big fan of his music, particularly some of his songs of ‘pre disco era’ and some songs from ‘disco era’ and post ‘disco-era’ too.

I specifically do not like his music for some Jitendra movies like ‘Mawaali’, ‘Justice Chaudhary’ and films in the same ‘genre’. At that time, I felt his music from these movies irritating too, wherever songs from these movies were played.

But then I was only fifteen-sixteen then and had not listen much of his ‘pre-disco’ era songs and songs in between because I did not paid attention to his music then. As I had mentioned in my earlier post here, I lost the track of his music later or 1985-1986 onwards.

Before that I liked songs of ‘Disco Dancer’, ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, some songs of ‘Himmatwala’ etc etc.

Later, as I grow, I got to listen many of his pre- ‘Himmatwala’ phase songs. I liked many of them. Some of them were regularly played at our (group of Indians in Kenya) week-end parties as I had mentioned earlier here. I am reproducing some text of my earlier write-up on him here. (I hope readers will not mind me of repeating of this text here. But this background is necessary to know how the music of Bappi Lahiri grow on me as years passed) …

Bappi Lahiri was born on 27th November’1952 in Jalpaiguri, West Bengal to Aparesh Lahiri and Bansari Lahiri who themselves were accomplished Bengali singers and musicians. Both his parents also came from Jalpaiguri.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview), this year in 2019 he has completed fifty years in his film-music journey. He has many records on his name and have been conferred by many awards till now. And he is still going on – rocking.

The first Hindi movie he composed music was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.
I was never a big Bappi Lahiri fan, but I was actively considering writing about Bappi Lahiri compositions. The reason behind this was that here in our camp, we were listening to many of his songs (both as a composer and singer) during our regular parties and I realised that these songs were liked by many, and they all have good music, particularly the ‘beats’ which people danced and enjoyed a lot. These were mainly the songs from his ‘disco era’.

One of my bosses particularly loved ‘Jeele le jeele le aayo aayo jeele le’ every time ‘bhaai ye gaana zaroor bajaana’. On one or two occasions when he was asking us to play some ‘English’ or ‘Kenyan’ music I brought him back to the songs of ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, ‘Disco Dancer’ or played other Bappi Lahiri songs.

‘Bambai se aaya mare dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was perhaps the song that first introduced me with the music of Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loudspeakers or in orchestras.

Subsequently I got introduced to songs from ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc.

I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I had not watched these movies until now.
I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because they were played by my friends during the summer vacation of 1983 after our 10th board exams were over.

Bappi Lahiri had composed some nice songs in his pre- ‘disco era’ that I was not aware of. Subsequently I have discovered a few such songs and I have shared a few of them on the blog.

For example, songs like ‘Ye naina ye kaajal’ from ‘Dil Se Mile Dil-1978’, ‘Sainyya bina ghar soona’ from ‘Aangan Ki Kali-1979’ etc. were shared by me long back.
After ‘Disco Dancer’ it was ‘Himmatwaala-1983’ which I watched with my younger brothers & cousins in the summer vacations (1983) and I liked few of its songs if not all.

Then there were movies where Bappi Lahiri composed songs for the movies from ‘South’ banners where Jeetendra was the main hero. From these movies I remember, ‘Jaani Dost-1983’, ‘Haisiyat-1984’, ‘Tohfaa-1984’ and of course I like all songs from ‘Sharaabi-1984’.

I also liked some of the songs from ‘Naukar Biwi Ka-1983’ which I watched during my stay at Akola (1983-1985).

I didn’t like the songs from ‘Mawaali-1983’. I liked one or two songs from ‘Justice Chaudhary-1983’. I did not watch these movies.

During 1983-85 when I was studying in 11th-12th standard disco music was ruling the charts in India. But I was more inclined to the golden era of HFM then and Rajesh Khanna movies, so I lost the track of many Bappi Lahiri songs and may be even not liking some of them.

I had then given a list of movies where Bappi Lahiri composed the songs from the years 1971-1980.

During the preparation of this list, I came across many movies of this period where Bappi Da had created some musical gems, that failed to get popular as the movies failed at the box office.

Like, when I came across the movie name ‘Ek Ladki Badnaam Si’ which was not released, and looked for its songs, I found that already one of its songs has been posted in a detailed post on Bappi Lahiri by Sudhir ji.

Today’s song is also one those forgotten gems. It is from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Paapi’. I had shared a song from this movie earlier.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Lata Mangeshkar passed away on 06.02.2022. Bappi Da had expressed his grief and paying his tribute he had posted his photo with Lata Mangeshkar when he was a child (4 years old) and was sitting in the lap of Lata Mangeshkar. Bappi Da wrote the word “Maa!” only. That is enough to tell us how emotional he was on the loss of Lata Mangeshkar.

Today’s movie “Paapi-1977” had four Lata solos which I had mentioned in my earlier post. And I presented a song which I found little familiar to me.

At that time, I had also said that I will listen the other songs from this movie. But that did not happen. Now, when I thought to pen this write-up as a tribute to Bappi Lahiri, I want to present a Lata Mangeshkar song only and so I go through the songs of this movie.

And I was surprised. How I missed this ‘wonderful’ song earlier and I also do not remember to have heard it anywhere. The year ‘1977’ was Bappi Da’s ‘bambai se aaya mera dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khatir’ making news and was being played everywhere. That was the only Bappi Da song which made it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1977’.

There were five movies in 1977 which had music composed by Bappi Lahiri.

From the nine songs in this movie Lata Mangeshkar has sung as many as four solo songs in this movie.

Rafi Saab had one solo, while Mahendra Kapoor had two solo songs, and Ranu Mukherji and Lorna had sung one duet song in this movie.

Since I have not watched this movie, I can’t say much about it or the songs from this movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs. This movie which had a star cast like Sanjeev Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Zeenat Amaan, Reena Roy, Prem Chopra, Padma Khanna, Madan Puri, Iftekhar, etc. must be an interesting movie to watch, I think.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song from ‘Paapi-1977’ which is performed on screen by Padma Khanna, and we can see Sanjeev Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Reena Roy, and many others in the picturization of this song …

Lata Mangeshkar is the singer of this song penned by Kulwant Jani, and composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …
