Rajesh Khanna – Birth Anniversary on 29/12/2020
—————————————————————-

Rajesh Khanna, the first superstar of hindi films, was born as Jatin Khanna on 29/12/1942 at Amritsar, Punjab. He is said to have had 17 solo hits from 1969 to 1971. This might be the only thing where Rajesh Khanna is ahead of superstar of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan. He holds the record of 48 Platinum Jubilee hits and 26 Golden jubilee hits plus 22 silver jubilee hits. Certainly overtook the Silver Jubilee star Rajendra Kumar in a big way, who had 25 silver Jubilees in his time.

Not, really having lived through the era of ‘Rajesh Khanna phenomena’, makes the experience that much less effective, but I have read a lot about it in urdu film magazine “Shama”. I can also vouch for his versatility as actor, who was comfortable in any type of character. Even through the superstardom, the quality of real story based meaningful films was maintained. With his performance in films like Anand, Safar, Khamoshi, Bawarchi, Mere Jeewan saathi, Amar Prem, Aradhana, Bahaaron ke Sapne, Namak Haram etc. he proved his mettle as an versatile actor.

As a tribute on his 78th birth anniversary, I am presenting a song from ‘Disco Dancer’ 1982, where Rajesh Khanna had a special appearance. There are quite a few special appearances and guest appearances in his filmography, which shows he did remember the benefactors in his life and did return the favours if he could. He did many number of films with Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Manmohan Desai, J. Om Prakash and Shakti Samant.

The song is a multiple version song, composed by Bappi Lahiri and written by Anjaan. Suresh Wadkar is giving playback to Rajesh Khanna and Usha Mangeshkar is singing for a child artist playing the young Mithun Chakravorty. This happy version is a ‘road side tamasha’ category song as Rajesh Khanna and the child perform in the streets. The child artist could be Baby Pinky. The sad version is a climax situation song in the auditorium, where again Rajesh Khanna is trying to coax a grown up disco star Mithun Chakravorty to start singing. This is a solo version of Suresh Wadkar.

A Trivia about this film:
Rajesh Khanna agreed to make a small appearance in this film without charging a fee. He did so to return a favour he owed to the film’s producer, director B. Subhash. It was Subhash who had recommended Rajesh Khanna to the producers of “Thodi si Bewafaii” (1980) when they were considering Sanjeev Kumar for the film’s lead role. The success of “Thodi si Bewafaii” helped stabilise Khanna’s career at a time when his films were bombing one after the other.

These two songs from this film are so far posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Krishna dharti pe aa jaa tu 12 April 201
I am a Disco dancer 16 June 2018

A last memory about Rajesh Khanna is a poetry loving character who is seen carrying around and reading a small book of Urdu poetry in this song of ‘Anand’. The book could be Sahir Ludhianvi’s “Parchhaiyaan”, but I am not sure.

It is a great tribute to the love of the language if a Bengali set up film shows a book in urdu script. The Bengali itself being a rich language, literature wise and status wise. It could have been Rajesh Khanna’s own choice.

Version 1 (happy):

Version 2 (sad) :

Hullo Atuldom

21st December happens to be the birthday of an entertainer who is the son of yesteryear (meaning the ’40s and ’50s) actor-producer Arun Kumar Ahuja and singer-actress Nirmala Devi. He is part of a family of 5 children -3 sisters and 2 brothers. All the children of Arun Ahuja are connected to the entertainment industry either directly or because of their children. The oldest daughter- Pushpa’s son Vinay Anand is an actor; second daughter- Padma’s son Krushna Abhishek and Arati Singh are actors; third daughter -Kamini herself is a writer, music director, singer, anchor etc.- daughter Ragini and son Amit are actors. Next of Arun Ahuja’s children is Kirti Kumar who is a director and an occasional actor. Then comes our today’s birthday boy- Govind Ahuja who gained popularity as Govinda.

Govinda started his career as an actor doing roles that were not necessarily in the comedy genre but showcased all aspects of acting viz. action, emotion, dancing etc. I remember having read his interview in magazines at the time of his debut, about how he had circulated his VHS tape to various production house that emphasized his dancing skills. I also recall reading how he had auditioned for a character in B R Chopra’s tele-series ‘Mahabharat’ before being signed by his maternal uncle Anand Singh (who happened to be Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s assistant in movies like ‘Khoobsurat’ and also played the character of Rakesh Roshan’s doctor friend in that). But ‘Tan Badan’ released after ‘Ilzaam’ and ‘Love 86’. Neelam was his heroine in many of his movies in that period.

Then he found his comic timing when he teamed up with David Dhawan in the ’90s and we found him cast opposite Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Juhi Chawla etc. We have seen him play second lead in movies of the late ’80s where Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatru, Jeetu etc. played main protagonists. And Govinda says that those were learning experiences for him.

Currently we see him sharing screen-time with the likes of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

Govinda has received 12 Filmfare nominations including best actor, best performance in a comic role and even a Best Villain. Yes he has played a villain too and he was very good at it in the N. Chandra directed 2000 release ‘Shikaari’. He has won 3 filmfare and numerous other awards.

It looks like his favourite male co-actors have been Shakti Kapoor (42 films), Kadar Khan (41 films), Johnny Lever (22 films), Satish Kaushik and Paresh Rawal (14 films with each).

Today’s song is from a movie that was released in 1989 but is not remembered by many I suppose. It had music by Bappi Lahiri; Anjaan and Naqsh Lyallpuri were the lyricists. From what I read on IMDB.com the story appears to be the usual masala stuff of an honest cop deciding that honesty doesn’t pay and having to encounter his own brother who has grown up to be an honest cop out to nab the cop-turned-criminal.

The cast was headed by Shashi Kapoor (possibly one of his last releases), Neelam Kothari and Govinda with Amrish Puri, Bob Christo, etc were in the supporting cast.
Here is this song from this movie. It is sung by Shabbir Kumar and AnuradhaChandrani Mukherjee. Lyricist is not known.

The song is picturised on Govinda and Neelam. It is quite a hummable song to listen to, even though the song failed to get popular.

“Farz Ki Jung”(1989) makes its debut with this song.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#4)
————————————————————
#the Decade of Eighties – 1981 – 1990 #
———————————————————–——
We have discussed ‘rail’ songs in our blog from time to time. Train and/or railways have always been my favorite subject and I always love to travel in trains whenever possible. I have many fond memories associated with my various journeys in narrow gauge, meter gauge and broad-gauge trains.

Other members of this blog also like to write about rail/train. Railways, there improvement, and possibility of high -speed trains to cover two long distance points in minimum time possible, is the favorite topic of many ‘Atulites’ and specially of Raja Saab.

And our leader Atul ji has also time to time discussed rail songs in his posts. It was couple of years back (or precisely in the month of May’2018) that there was some discussion about ‘railways and high-speed trains’ in the ‘Atulites WhatsApp’ group.

It started with Raja Saab expressing his wish for an overnight journey train between SBC-CSTM. He also mentioned that maybe he is a bit spoilt 😊 by high speed travels (by train) in Europe.

Well the discussion was a long one and I am not going to reproduced it all here. (Rather I will keep some points from it for another write-up in the future).

During the discussion Atul ji said that ‘as an insider (in railways)’ he can bring the various suggestions to the attention of the higher authorities or even through his posts on the blog he can throw light on many issues and can even take a series of articles connecting ‘rail/train’ issues if we can suggest him some good songs from Hindi movies.

As usually I am, being an over-enthusiastic person 😊, I search and send many songs to our editors. Atul ji had also wrote some good posts and presented some good songs. However, no song from the lot I sent was selected for a post (till now 😊).

Today I am presenting one of the songs from this lot.

So far, on the blog we have ninety-eight songs under ‘Rail songs’ and many of them are timeless classics like ‘zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hain jo makaam’ composed by R.D. Burman, ‘Gaadi bulaa rahi hai’ by Laxmikant-Pyarelal etc etc.

I think R.D. Burman composed many songs in this ‘genre’ and it would be interesting to know how many other lyricists and composers are involved in creating rail songs and who are the toppers.

But then, it again is the subject matter of another post (may be the next post in this ‘genre’ could be presented with these statistics with a rail song).

One of the other Pancham composed rail song that immediately comes to mind is ‘ham dono do premi duniya chhod chale’ from ‘Ajnabi-1974’ which was picturized with Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman on a ‘freight train’ jumping on ‘haystacks’. (Atul ji’s terminology) and I am specially mentioning this song now because
if we watch today’s song it immediately reminds us of the above song.

However, today’s song is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

And today 27th November 2020 is his sixty-eighth birth anniversary.

On this occasion wishing Bappi Lahiri a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead let us enjoy the today’s song picturized on Mithun Chakravarty and Ranjeeta, also seen is Shakti Kapoor in the picturization of this song.
(This song is also picturized on a ‘freight-train’ 😊)

‘Tarkeeb-1982’ was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for ‘Venus Combines, Madras’. Ravikant Nagaich also did the photography of this movie. It was produced by S. Krishnamurthy.

Story of this movie was written by Taarakaraamaa and dialogues of this movie were written by Ramesh Pant.
Editing of this movie was done by N.M. Shankar. It had Ranjeeta, Mithun Chakravarty, Shakti Kapoor, Rakesh Pande, Sharat Saxena, Paintal, Mukri, Beena, Parveen Pal, Naaz, Dinesh Hingoo, Leena Das, Dinesh Sharma, Kalpana Ayyer, Prem Bedi, Guddi, Madan Puri and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.11.1982.

This movie had six songs written by Anjaan and its music was composed by Bappi Lahiri. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, S. Janaki, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, S.P. Balasubramaniam and Bappi Lahiri have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie ‘Tarkeeb-1982’ makes its debut on the blog and so does Bappi Da makes a debut in the category of ‘rail songs’ (if I am not wrong 😊) on the blog.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Their voices are lip synced by Mithun Chakraborty and Ranjeeta respectively.

Arey chhuk chhuk gaadi
Jab jab boley

Hullo Atuldom

This is a post to wish Suyash Pandey on his 58th birthday (DoB 25 September 1962). His mother was a physician and a personal dietitian to Rekha in the ’80s. His father was in the team of surgeons who performed the first ever heart transplant in India at Mumbai’s KEM Hospital in the 70s. Suyash Pandey’s daughter is also in movies and she made her debut in 2019.

I am talking of the smart, tall and lively actor who is popular as Chunky Pandey (his daughter is Ananya Pandey). He made his debut in 1987 in the Shibu Mitra directed multi-starrer “Aag Hi Aag” playing Moushumi Chatterjee and Dharmendra’s son. That movie was produced by Pahlaj Nihalani. Neelam Kothari was his love-interest in that movie. Chunky’s “Paap Ki Duniya” (1988) was his second with producer Nihalani and director Shibu Mitra. This was also a multi-starrer. It also had Neelam as the female lead. Only difference was, here Neelam was in love with Sunny Deol’s character.

I remember seeing the movie at the time of its release, of course with my all-time moving-seeing companion ‘my dad’. After sitting through the movie, which he enjoyed thoroughly, he said that the story is same as Raj Kapoor’s “Awaara”. That is, the son of an honest cop (Pran) is kidnapped by a notorious criminal (Danny), and is brought up to be a professional thief and criminal (Sunny Deol). The movie has enough twists and turns because of which the criminal’s son (Chunky) is brought up by the cop and he becomes a cop, hot on the heels of the criminals Danny and Sunny. And then everyone finds out their blood-relatives and we have a happy ‘the end’ and Inspector Vijay (Chunky) is happy to see Ashok alias Suraj (Sunny) marrying Aarthi (Neelam).

Chunky is one actor who was mostly seen in multi-starrers and was nominated for the best supporting actor award for his role in “Tezaab”, where he played Anil Kapoor’s friend Baban, who helps Anil (Munna) find Mohini (Madhuri) when Lotiya Pathan (Kiran Kumar) kidnaps her.
But IMHO he was best, playing comic characters – his “Aankhen” with Govinda is the best case to prove my point. Of course, his career took a slight beating when the Khan’s appeared on the Bollywood firmament but he has managed to find a footing in movies of the new millennium and is seen doing varied characters which are not necessarily comedy or romantic and also not the typical character actor type roles.
He was a decent dancer and today’s song is proof of that. It is from “Paap Ki Duniya” which is written by Anjaan and Bappi Lahiri is the music director. S. Janaki and Kishore Kumar are the playback. The song was decently popular in those days when the movie released and is based on some Marathi folk song. I also feel that there may be a Marathi original to this song.

As I was seeing the video (after years) a few things struck me:-
(1) the Marathi saris that Neelam wears are the same colors as the dresses preceding them.
(2) Bappi Lahiri had a field day composing the interlude music which has both western and folk beats.
(3) The choreographer must have enjoyed composing the dance as both the artists were decent dancers. By the way, this song was Inspector Vijay’s fantasy.
A very Happy Birthday to Chunky who has a knack of cracking up at jokes of which he is often the target.


Song-Mera dil tota ban jaaye kaisa mithhu mithhu bole haaye(Paap Ki Duniya)(1988) Singers-Kishore Kumar, S Janaki, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

mera dil tota ban jaaye,
kaisa mithu mithu bole haye
mera dil tota ban jaaye,
kaisa mithu mithu bole haaye

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is because of this song. This song reminded me how amused I used to be whenever I saw it.

Atulji has mentioned the starcast of “Tohfa”, the movie of which the above song is. He has mentioned that he felt the props comprising of saris was imaginative. If he had seen the movie he would have understood the reason for the ‘Sari’ prop. I am sure there will be some followers of the blog who have not seen the movie and definitely some followers would have seen. They will remember that in the scene preceding the song Jeetendra has gifted Jaya Prada a decent looking sari as he is appreciative of her way of taking care of his mother in his absence. She is in awe of him and when his mother asks her if she would like to be her daughter-in-law she fantasizes the song. Like I mentioned to my mother “ek saree mila toh itne saree khwaab mein aa gaye”; how typical!!!! (I had wanted to write all this in the comments that day, but reserved it for this post)

In all this Jeetendra has not been consulted by his mother (Urmila Bhatt). If she had, he would have told her that he was in love with another girl from the village. Now who is this other girl? She is Lalitha (Sridevi) who is also Janaki’s (Jaya Prada’s) sister. Janaki has been doing odd jobs around the village and helping out in households so that she can look after herself and her sister. Her only aim being that her sister should graduate and have a good life. Without knowing that Lalitha and Ram babu (Jeetendra) are already in love Janaki entrusts Rambabu with the responsibility of helping Lalitha with her studies. This gives them enough time to flirt and romance. One such meeting of Rambabu and Lalitha happens near a pond and he accidentally (may be on purpose too, don’t remember) kicks her Kalash (brass pot) into the water. The song that follows has numerous Kalash as prop. I am sure this idea was borrowed from the super-hit song of “Himmatwala” (1983).

Both these movies had many things in common.
(1) Music director was Bappi Lahiri. (2) Lyricist was Indeevar. (3) Hero was Jeetendra. (4) Both were made in South essentially as remakes of Telugu movies. (5) Both were directed by K. Raghavendra Rao: ‘Tohfa’ being a remake of his Telugu hit ‘Devatha’ released in 1982 & ‘Himmatwala’ remake of ‘Ooruki Monagadu’ a 1981 release. (6) Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of both. (7) Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and S P Balasubramaniam were the playback singers.

The only thing that I would love to find out is who was the choreographer for the two movies. These movies had some unique dance steps almost equivalent of Aerobics. That may be an explanation of why Jeetendra looked so fit in those movies. 😉

A post about either ‘Himmatwala’ or ‘Tohfa’ or any of the few 10-15 movies of that period that were made with Jeetu by these South Indian makers will be incomplete without mentioning one more common factor- the trio of Kadar Khan- Shakti Kapoor- Asrani in the supporting cast. Jeetu used to say that he used to like working in the southern industry setup as they were very organized and punctual in their working. That may also be an explanation to why so many of Jeetu’s contemporary actors also tried their luck down south with positive results.

This discussion about the South Indian film industry is getting a bit too long and I am missing the purpose of this post.

As I was writing I made a discovery:- “Himmatwala” is yet to make a debut on the blog. I couldn’t believe it and made a call to Atulji to confirm. Now I am in a fix, which song to have with this post. The song from “Tohfa” which I have described or its inspiration from “Himmawala”. And both songs feature the birthday girl under discussion. She was beautiful in both.

So here is wishing the beautiful Sridevi (13 august 1963- 24 feb 2018) was with us and turned 56 on 13 August 2020. Let us think of her with this colourful song that made her the darling of the audience. The purists may have run down the songs of this period but we must admire the effort and imagination in erecting a set with pots and cart wheels. Also I admire Sridevi that she has danced barefoot in what must have been scorching hot sand.

Blog Day :

4400 Post No. : 15782

Today (4 August 2020) is the 91st birth anniversary of Kishore Kumar (4 August 1929- 13 october 1987). And incidentally, today is the 4400th day for the blog !

Three articles from three regulars discussing Kishore Kumar have already appeared on the blog today. It is interesting to note that all the three regulars decided to discuss three songs from the decade of 1980s.

The golden era of HFM, which began in 1949, ended in 1980. People who lived through the golden era can notice a palpable lack of overall quality in HFM after 1980. There were quite a few reasons for that. I have given this matter some thought and I have come up with some interesting observations. I will use those observations some other time in some other article. Here I will mention it in brief that the golden era of HFM began when Indian classical base (melody based) was wedded with western classical base (symphony based). This marriage, which gave us the best of both the worlds, got dissolved in 1980. Western symphony was replaced by western cacophony while lyrics of the songs were dispensed with.

Another reason was gradual demise of the doyens of HFM maestroes. Shailendra (1966), Roshan (1968), Shakeel Badayuni (1970), Jaikishan (1971), Geeta Dutt (1972), Madan Mohan , Vasant Desai, S D Burman (all 1975), Mukesh (1976) and Rafi (1980) left the scene one after the other creating big voids. With the demise of Rafi on 31 july 1980, the HFM golden era literally ended.

If we still have a few songs worth listening to in 1980s, then they are invariably the creations of those who began their careers during the golden era and they had the musical wherewithals to create quality music. It was the old guard that kept creating good music in 1980s.

One will notice that majority of memorable songs of 1980s were sung by old guard, viz Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. This state of affairs continued till late 1980s when Kishore Kumar died in 1987. R D Burman, who was sticking to Kishore Kumar confided in Amit Kumar that his music was unlikely to remain the same with the absence of Kishore Kumar.

Ironically, the music director who was the most responsible for the demise of HFM golden era, viz Bappi Lahiri, was also the music director who created the most number of memorable songs post 1980s. And no prizes for guessing who were the singers in these songs. When Bappi Lahiri was not creating forgettable (but saleable) disco numbers, he was also creating golden era quality songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Unlike the golden era hit songs, these 1980s era songs were light on lyrics, making them chaalu songs. Still, these songs became popular because the singers could carry off these songs with inane lyrics with aplomb.

There are several Bappi Lahiri chaalu songs that Kishore Kumar turned into timeless classics. Some examples are movies like “Namakhalaal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984), “Aaj Ka Arjun”(1990). Incidentally , all these songs had Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles.

Then there were Jeetendra starrers where the lyrics were of even more “Chaalu” variery. But Kishore Kumar turned even those songs into classics. In these songs he often had the company of Asha Bhonsle, who could be regarded as his female version among playback singers, as far as singing versatility was concerned.

As a tribute to Kishore Kumar, here is the title song of “Tohfa”(1984). This movie was produced by D Ramanaidu and directed by K Raghvendra Rao for Suresh Productions, Madras. This archtypical Madrasi movie (Hindi remake) of 1980s had Jeetendra, JayaPrada, Sridevi, Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Mohan Choti, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Jayshree T, Master Rinku etc in it, with friendly appearance by Asrani.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Jayaprada and Jeetendra. They are seen prancing, with Saris of all varieties forming the background as well as the prop. Quite an imaginative picturisation.

And as observed earlier, the song on its own is nothing much to write home about. Still, this is one of those songs that had stood the test of time and it is still regarded as one of the popular songs of its era. Much of the credit for this has to go to the singers, viz Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Just like R D Burman’s music suffered after the demise of Kishore Kumar, bappi Lahiri’s music too failed to reach the same heights in the absence of Kishore Kumar’s vocals. It shows the calibre of Kishore Kumar’s singing abilities who with his Midas touch could convert a seemingly mediocre song into a timeless classic.

Personally, I found the music of 1980s bearably enjoyable, mainly because of songs like this. And unsurprisingly, most such songs had the voice of Kishore Kumar in them.

Enjoy this song. This song demostrates that one can act silly and it can be still enjoyable and fun for all concerned, provided you have the calibre to carry it off.

Hullo Atuldom

Holi kab hai? kab hai holi? kab? kab?” – these are the famous lines mouthed by the most dreaded daaku of Ramgarh. He was wanted ‘dead or alive’ and carried a reward of ‘pachhas hazaar’ on his head. And from his den he declared rather pompously “Yahan se pachhas pachhas kos door gaon mein … jab bachcha raat ko rota hai, toh maa kehti hai bete so ja … so ja nahi to Gabbar Singh aa jayega”. With the most simple and not-so-profound dialogues like ‘Kitne Aadmi The’, ‘Jo Darr Gaya Samjho Marr Gaya’ andTera kya hoga Kalia’, Gabbar Singh alias Amjad Khan had arrived on the Bollywood scene, giving life to one of the most celebrated and iconic characters in Hindi cinema.

Born in undivided India’s Peshawar in 1940, he was the first child of actor Jayant (Zakaria Khan). He was a bright student who had a Masters in Philosophy and loved to read English poets like Keats and Wordsworth and could debate on political theories or philosophies of Plato, Socrates and even Dr. Radhakrishnan. After his M.Phil he ventured on to the world of theatre to give a chance to his passion of acting that he had inherited from his father. That is where he was spotted by the writer duo Salim-Javed who recommended him to Ramesh Sippy and rest of the story is well known to all the fans of this wonderful actor.

That was 1975. Post ‘Sholay’ Amjad Khan went on to live a number of memorable characters on celluloid. Can anyone forget the risk-taking best friend Bishan of Kishan (Amitabh) in ‘Yaarana’,  or the funny policeman of Kumar Gaurav’s debut ‘Love Story’. He was unforgettable as Nawab Wajid Ali Shah in Satyajit Ray’s ‘Shatranj Ke Khiladi’. What versatility. He was happy that his directors and writers saw more than a villain or a daaku in him and thanked them for not typecasting him else, we would never have seen his comic timing and his mastery in emoting any kind of role.

Today it is 28 years since his passing and we have a song that shows him trying to shake a leg with Mithun. The song is penned by Farooq Kaiser and set to tune by Bappi Lahiri. It is from the 1985 release ‘Maa Kasam’ which was directed by Shibu Mitra & had a cast of Mithun, Amjad Khan, Ranjeet, Divya Rana, Sushma Seth and Pran. It was a typical masala movie complete with dances where the lead actors are in disguise etc.

I stumbled on this song recently and filed it away to post it in remembrance of Amjad Khan. It is sung by Mohd Aziz, Vijay Benedict and Parvati Khan. We also have Kalpana Iyer as part of the group dance. We can also see Guddi Maruti and Sundar present in this clip. Just to know why everyone is dressed in tribal outfits which the Red Indians will claim as their traditional wear I need to see this movie.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 40
——————————————————————————

Ten years back on 06.07.2010 three songs from three movies were represented on the blog:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Gori hain kalaayiyaan tu lade mujhe hari hari choodiyaan Aaj Ka Arjun-1990 02 songs posted
Sajna mera dil tera dil gayaa mil Jhoola-1962 All songs covered
Piyaa piyaa naa laage moraa jiyaa Phagun-1958 All songs covered

Two movies ‘Jhoola-1962’ and ‘Phagun-1958’ have already been YIPPEED, so we have only one movie viz. ‘Aaj Ka Arjun-1990’ which is eligible for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ today (6 july 2020).

I remember that I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan) when this movie ‘Aaj Ka Arjun’ was released. Two of its songs had become very much popular. The song ‘chali aana tu paan ki dukaan pe’ was played on cassette-recorder in every ‘paan-shop’ in the ‘gali’ and ‘nukkad’ 😊 while the other song ‘gori hain kalaayiyaan’ was also played and could be heard everywhere (specially in Rajasthan).

Befittingly these two songs have already been covered on the blog. It proves that the same two songs were considered the most popular by the editor of the blog as well. 🙂

Song Posted On
Chali aana tu paan ki dukaan pe saadhe teen baje 26.05.2009
Gori hain kalaayiyaan tu lade mujhe hari hari choodiyaan 06.07.2010

I had never watched this movie (for me it was a ‘No Amitabh movie’ years those days), so when our Prakash ji sent the lyrics of the today’s song, I had no recollections of having listening to this song. Other than the above mentioned two songs of this movie I was not aware of remember any other songs of this movie. However, when I listened to today’s song, I liked it. I may have heard this song in the past but the song may have failed to register with me in the past.

This song is in two versions- one is sung by Amit Kumar and the other by Lata Mangeshkar.

“Aaj Ka Arjun-1990” was directed by K.C. Bokadia for BMB Productions. K.C. Bokadia was also the producer of this movie. It had Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Prada, Radhika, Suresh Oberoi, Kiran Kumar and Amrish Puri. The movie introduced Rishabh Shukla on the big screen.

Asrani and Anupam Kher make special appearance in this movie. The above cast was supported by Preeti Sapru, Baby Guddu, Bramhachari, Praveen Kumar, Anirudh Agarwal, Junior Mehmood, Ram Kumar and Vikas Anand.

Story of this movie was written by P. Vasu and screenplay was written by Santosh Saroj. Dialogues of this movie were written by Anirudh Tiwari. Saroj Khan and Chinni Prakash were the choreographers for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Alka Yagnik, Shabbir Kumar, Mohd Aziz and Amit Kumar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Anjaan was the lyricist for the songs in this movie and music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.08.1990.

Let us now listen to today’s multiple version song. It is sung by Amit Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. Lyrics are by Anjaan and music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 93 # Remembering Lyricist Gauhar Kanpuri
—————————————–—————————————–
(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri # 3)

In one of my posts on the blog I had mentioned that the month of ‘June’ had many important days or anniversaries of film personalities (and the team members of this blog too).

Today 29th June is the ‘Remembrance Day’ of lyricist Gauhar Kanpuri. He passed away in the year 2002. He was active during the decade of seventies and thereafter till his death in 2002.

As per information available online he wrote lyrics for many songs of Hindi movies (more than one hundred fifty songs for around fifty-six movies). The detailed information about his filmography needs to be compiled. Also, I could not find much detailed information about his biography. (I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the information available on him).

He wrote the famous title song of ‘Saawan Ko Aane Do-1979’, then songs for the movies like ‘Zakhmee-1975’, ‘Do Khiladi-1976’, ‘Phir Janam Lenge Ham-1977’, ‘Haiwaan-1977’, ‘Dada-1978’, ‘Dulha Bikta Hai-1982’, ‘Woh Jo Haseena-1983’, and many others, and including ‘Baazigar-1993’ of the nineties.

I may have missed some of his movies where the songs were popular, but then, as I said above, the list of his filmography needs to be compiled from authentic sources.

Today’s song is from the movie “Shikshaa-1978”. All songs for this movie were written by him. Music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

I have mentioned it in my earlier post here that there are many Bappi Lahiri compositions before early eighties or his ‘pre-Himmatwaala period which are very nice and needs to be discussed here. And in this case like in this movie ‘Shikshaa-1978’ we have the frequently heard ‘yaari hai phoolon se meri yaari hai’ sung by Bappi Lahiri and the gem ‘teri chhotisi ek bhool ne’ sung by Yesudas and other songs.

But, for today’s presentation I have selected this beautiful ‘Raam ‘Bhajan’ sung by Chandrani Mukherjee which I think was a lesser heard song from this movie. I was also not aware of this song till few weeks before and had not heard it earlier. And when I listened to it first time and second time and more it keeps growing on and I liked this song very much.

Gauhar Kanpuri has a long association with Bappi Lahiri and most of his works have compositions by Bappi Lahiri.

For this post I have compiled his list of movies with Bappi Lahiri in the decade of 1971 to 1980 where they had nine movies together;

“Shikshaa-1978” was directed by S. Ramnathan for ‘New Horizon Films, Bombay’. It had Rajkiran, Benjamin Gilani, Shashi Saxena, Jagdeep, Iftekhar, Urmila Bhatt, Pinchoo Kapoor, Krishna Dhawan, Surendra Kumar, Vikrant Taneja, Viju Khote, Brijen Mohan, Babbanlal and others. This movie introduced Sushma Verma, Master Sandeep and Bina Banerjee.
Bhagwan, Mukri, Jairaj, Shobha Khote, Pilu Wadia and Ritu Kamal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had total five songs plus one music track as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The lyrics for the songs (all songs) were penned by Gauhar Kanpuri.

As mentioned above music was composed by Bappi Lahiri (assisted by Bansari Lahiri, Anil & Arun).

Arti Mukherjee, Anuradha Paudwal, Bappi Lahiri, Chandrani Mukherjee, Shailendra Singh and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.12.1978.

Let us now enjoy today’s song – a soulful rendition by Chandrani Mukherjee and lip synced on screen by Bina Banerjee. Also seen in picturization of this song are Benjamin Gilani, Rajkiran, Master Sandeep and others.

With this song the movie “Shikshaa-1978” makes its debut on the blog…

Blog Day :

4364 Post No. : 15690 Movie Count :

“Jaan e Bahaar”(1979) was produced by Prakash Agrawal and directed by Prakash Kapoor for Nav Chitra Bombay. This movie had Sachin,Sarika, Jagdeep,Paintal, Indrani Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor, Madan Puri, Kanhaiya Lal, Lalita Pawar, Manju Bansal, Rajguru, Bhagwan Dada, Mushtaq merchant, Manhar Desai, Viju Khote, Renu, Ram Avtar, Bhagwan Sinha, Munshi Munnaka, Satyabhan Sinha, Pappu, Rasool, Sheikh, Ramesh Goel, Anu Dhavan, Sangeeta Bhosle, Deependra, Ashok.L.,Sattar Bhai, Manohar, Subhash Ohri, Baijnath, Masterjee, Ashat Kapoor, Vinod Sharma, B.C.Mahor, Sitaram, Aslam Khan, Satya Devi, Khushal, Raaj Anand, Rustum-e-Hind, Suresh Jain, Ashok Bhatia, with friendly appearances by Padma Khanna, Junior Mehmood, Asrani and Dheeraj Kumar.

Today (29 june 2020) is the 18th remembrance day of Gauhar Kanpuri.

I associate the name of Gauhar Kanpuri with the “Zakhmi”(1975) songs Abhi abhi thi dushmani and Jalta hai jiya mera. He also penned some other well known songs such as Jhoomta saawan dekho aaya (Do Khilaadi)(1976) , Allah karam karna Maula tu reham karna (Dada)(1978), Tumhe geeton mein dhaaloongaa (Saawan Ko Aane Do)(1979) etc. He continued to write lyrics for movies well into 1980 and even 1990s, but I remember him mostly for his songs of 1970s mentioned earlier.

As a tribute to Gauhar Kanpuri, here is the first (out of 5 songs) song from “Jaan e Bahaar”(1979). This song is sung by Rafi, Runa Laila and Anand Kumar Chitragupta. Gauhar Kanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri. The song is picturised on Sachin, Sarika, Jagdeep and Kanhaiyalal. Sachin and Jagdeep share Rafi’s voice while Kaanhaiyalal lip syncs in Anand Kumar Chitragupta’s voice.

The picturisation is supposed to be a romantic cum comedy song, but I find the picturisation a big let down. Moviegoers of those days (inlcuding I myself) had wisely kept away from patronising this movie and the movie deservedly flopped at the box office.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Jaan e Bahaar”(1979) makes its debut in the blog.
