5145 Post No. : 17107 Movie Count :

Today 19th of August 2022 is the third ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of the legendary music director Mohammed Zahur “Khayyam” Hashmi Saab, whom we fondly know as Khayyam Saab.

He was born on 18th February 1927 in a village Rahon in the District of Jalandhar – Punjab.

From Jalandhar he came to Delhi and from Delhi to Lahore to Mumbai again back to Lahore and finally to Mumbai to start his career in Hindi Films in 1948. He started his musical career as a Singer first, singing a duet in the movie ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (1947) with Zohrabai Ambalewali. And later got his first assignment to compose music for the movie ‘Heer Ranjha’ (1948).

As per the statistics given in the book ‘Khayyam – The Man – His Music’, researched, compiled, and edited by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee, since 1948 to 2007 Khayyam Saab composed music for 55 movies (released) for 321 songs. As many as 17 movies where he composed music for 60 songs were not released for various reasons. Some of them were shelved and were not completed.

He had also given music to 194 non-filmy songs composed for various albums including patriotic songs and others. He also composed music for 8 TV serials composing 45 songs.

On our blog we have so far covered 201 songs composed by Khayyam Saab.

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Tere Shahar Mein’ (1986) in which Khayyam Saab was the music director.

‘Tere Shahar Mein’ was directed by for Sagar Sarhadi for Mahesheka Films Pvt Ltd., Bombay. It was produced by SS Broca. It had Naseeruddin Shah, Smita Patil, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Dipti Naval, Marc Zuber and others.

This movie had four songs composed by Khayyam Saab. Two songs were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri. Bashar Nawaz and Amir Minai had penned one song each. [Source for this detailed information is the book ‘Khayyam- The Man-His Music’ by Vishwas Nerurkar and Bishwanath Chatterjee.]

I guess that this movie was not released at all. Because very less information is available about the movie and video of the songs or others is not available. The ‘Hindi Filmography – 1986-2000’ mentions only the names of the Producer, Director, and Music Director for this movie title.

But luckily audio of the songs from this movie is available. I came across today’s song only few months back and loved it very much. The song is a gem of song but very less heard.

Today’s song is sung by Singer Bhupinder Singh.

Lyricist for this song is Bashar Nawaz. Incidentally yesterday, 18th August was his birth anniversary. Here is a brief about him taken from ‘Wikipedia’.

Bashar Nawaz (18 August 1935 – 9 July 2015) was one of the prominent progressive Urdu Poet, critic, and lyricist, who penned the song “Karoge Yaad To” in the film ‘Bazaar’ (1982). He picked up the ‘Pulotsav Samman’ and ‘Ghalib Award’ for his contribution to Urdu literature.

He had written lyrics for a few Hindi films such as ‘Bazaar’, ‘Lorie’ and ‘Jaan e Wafa’. Ghulam Ali, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Aziz, Asha Bhosle, Talat Aziz, Bhupinder, and Mehdi Hasan among others have given voice to his ghazals.

He also wrote 13 episodes of the TV serial ‘Amir Khusro’, which was telecast on Doordarshan in 1983. Bashar also penned 26 episodes of the musical opera ‘Saare Jahan se Accha Hindustan Hamara’, which was broadcast by All India Radio. He scripted a serial on Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, which was televised on Doordarshan in 2000.

Nawaz’s poems have been translated into Marathi, Hindi, Punjabi, and Kannada and published in journals and anthologies. As many as ten of his poems have been translated into English by Zaheer Ali. Anwar Saeed from Pakistan has made special mention of Bashar Nawaz in his book ‘Short History of Urdu Literature’. His ghazals and poems have been included in almost all the anthologies of best Urdu poetry from 1960 onward, said noted Urdu poet Khan Shamim. On 9 July 2015, Bashar Nawaz died at the age of 79 in Aurangabad (Maharashtra).

Let us now listen to the today’s lovely song sung by Bhupinder Singh and composed by Khayyam Saab. Lyrics are written by Bashar Nawaz as mentioned above.

With this song the movie ‘Tere Shahar Mein’ makes its debut on the blog.

Our tributes to Khayyam Saab !!!
His immortal compositions will live forever and will continue to mesmerize the coming generations with the magic of his music !!!

Hullo Atuldom

I have always felt that one thought, a stray statement or headline triggers a range of connected and unconnected thoughts and memories.

Today’s post arises from the song “Har Ek Saans Hai Mehmaan Kuchh Pehar Ke Liye” of Avinashji. In this post he has listed songs sung by Bhupinder Singh – the singer who left this mortal world recently. I was listening to the songs listed therein – on YouTube. One song led to another and I ended up listening to Zindagi Cigarette Ka Dhuaan -a song written by Kaifi Azmi and music was by Jaidev.

Jaidev was born Jai Dev Verma on 3rd August 1918 in Nairobi where his father was an official in the railways. He was brought up in Ludhiana and has said that his mother was responsible for instilling the love of music in him as she used to recite the Ramayana soulfully and musically. Looking up Jaidev ji and his life-journey I found that he had also acted in 4-5 mythological/swashbuckling films but soon realized that acting was not his forte. He was the disciple of the sarod maestro Ali Akbar Khan and accompanied him to Bombay and assisted him in composing music for a couple of Chetan Anand films. These films were not successful and Ali Akbar Khan moved on but Jaidev stayed back. He then assisted SD Burman in music composing for such landmark films as ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘House No. 44’, ‘Munimji’, ‘Lajwanti’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ ‘Sujata’, ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ etc. He got his first independent break in Chetan Anand’s ‘Joru Ka Bhai’ (1955). It was the 1961 release ‘Hum Dono’ that brought Jaidev ji to the notice of Hindi film music lovers. This was followed by the songs of ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ (Source:- https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/manufocus/outstanding-music-director-jaidev-a-mine-of-talent-that-remained-underexploited-10855/)

Following the unforgettable songs of ‘Hum Dono’ and ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ were songs of ‘Reshma Aur Shera’, ‘Do Boond Paani’, Alaap’, ‘Gharonda’, ‘Dooriyan’, ‘Gaman’ etc and a few more. As the Times of India article headline says he was an “Outstanding Music Director: A Mine of Talent that Remained Underexploited”- his filmography shows only 41 films; many of his compositions are lost in unreleased, unfinished albums. He was said to be Lata Mangeshkar’s favorite composer along with Salil Choudhary and Madan Mohan and Asha Bhonsle was his preferred singer when he composed songs out of the literary works of Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Jaishankar Prasad, Mahadevi Verma etc. His ghazals helped the careers of Peenaz Masani, Hariharan, Chandan Das etc. in the initial stages. Simple, sincere, unassuming and gentle Jaidev ji was someone who didn’t compromise on quality of music. He was an excellent music director who has given some of the best melodies in Indian Cinema.

Thinking of Jaidev ji today on his birth anniversary with this song from ‘Faaslaa’ (1974) whose first song Zindagi Cigarette Ka Dhuaan was posted in 2011. Today’s song is also in Bhupinder’s voice and written by Kaifi Azmi. On screen we have Shabana Azmi and Raman Khanna.


Song-Dil ne tadap tadap ke tadapna sikha diya (Faaslaa)(1974) Singer-Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm

dil ne tadap tadap ke tadapna sikha diya
inaam ab miley ke sazaa

dil ne tadap tadap ke tadapna sikha diya

deewaana karke chhod de jo

deewana karke chhod de jo
ik zamaane ko
mujhko usi nigaah ne
insaan bana diya aa
mujhko usi nigaah ne

inaam ab miley ke sazaa

bas itna jaanta hoon
mujhe tumse pyaar hai ae
aur pyaar mein naa jeet kisi ki na haar hai
iske siwaa jo yaad thha
sab kuchh bhula diya
iske siva jo yaad tha
sab kuchh bhula diya
inaam ab miley ke sazaa
sar jhuka diya
deewana karke chhod de jo
ik zamaane ko
mujhko usi nigaah ne
insaan bana diya aa
hmm hmm hmm

Blog Day :

5047 Post No. : 16960

Today 13th May’2022 is the seventy-sixth birthday of Shri Bishwanath Chatterjee compiler of Hindi Film Geet Kosh Vol-V (1971-1980). Those who have the copy of this Geet Kosh would have read about his brief introduction on the cover page no.2 of this Geet Kosh.
He has also been a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for HGK Vol-I to Vol-IV etc. and a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for the ‘List of Hindi Films (Talkie) – 1931-1987.

He has also been a co-author/co-editor with Vishwas Nerurkar for the books on Khayyam Saab, Kishore Kumar, Vasant Desai and Sudhir Phadke.

Here is a brief about him as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) by Devi Shankar Kanojiya and other details which Shri Chatterjee shared with me. (Devi Shankar Kanojiya a family friend is younger to Bishwanath ji by five years and settled at Kanpur now. He was earlier working in Telecom department of Government of India.).

Bishwanath Chatterjee was born on 13th May’1946 at Nagpur. He is born and brought up at Nagpur only. After his studies he joined the Department of Audit & Accounts (Postal). (This department was later bifurcated in two i.e., Accounts and Audit being separate departments.)
His first posting was at Jaipur (for Jaipur circle) where he stayed for one year i.e. 1970-1971. His next posting was at Bhopal where he stayed till 14.05.1980 and was transferred to Nagpur w.e.f.15.05.1980.
He retired in May’2006 as Director of Accounts (Postal) and now settled in Nagpur. He has a daughter who is happily married and stays abroad with her family. She has a son.

It so happened that around 1966 Bishwanath ji got interested in Hindi Film Music, or rather the HFM attracted him so much that after two years i.e., around 1968 a thought to compile the details of all songs till date, then stems in his mind.
However, in absence of sufficient and required resources he had to suppress the idea temporarily but a strong urge to have such a compilation has already taken deep roots in his mind.
In ‘1975’ he got to know about Harmandir Singh Hamraaz ji through the weekly ‘Screen’ and came into contact with him. He came to know that Hamraz ji was also working on a similar project and in fact almost 50% work of compiling such information has been completed by Hamraz ji till then. So he decided to support full heartedly to Hamraaz ji. And he has been instrumental in preparing the ‘manuscript’ for the first four volumes of ‘Geet Kosh’ and after that he independently compiled the ‘Geet Kosh – Vol-V’.

He also accompanied Shri Hamraaz ji in extensive travels to places like Bombay, Poona, Indore, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Calcutta, for gathering information and meeting various film personalities and film connoisseurs to get accurate information as possible.

In between, in the year of 1975 he founded ‘Saurabh Radio Shrota Sangh’ at Nagpur and also published ‘Saurabh-1977’ (as a co-editor). But due to economic constraints he had to discontinue this publication.

Shri Chatterjee has been a ‘passionate’ student of Hindi Film Music and has keen interests in Hindustani Classical Music. He has his own library consisting of lot of books about films and Geet & Ghazals.

I got a chance to meet him once during my stay at Nagpur in 2015-2017, where our regular reader Shri Avinash Shravane was also with us. It was a ‘film screening’ program by ‘Cine Montage, Nagpur’.
I left Nagpur on 09.03.2017 and since then I am in touch with him on phone-calls. As very rightly mentioned by Shri Kanojiya ji, Bishwanath ji is very humble, generous, enthusiastic and extremely sensible person.

Yesterday evening when I called him he was very happy and enthusiastic as ever. We discussed many topics and shared our thoughts too.

Once again I wish him a very happy birthday today, and a healthy and peaceful, yet’ full of music’al life ahead.

When I think about him I find the today’s song perfectly fit for this occasion as the ‘fragrance of his works and words – in the form of ‘Geet Kosh’ will be there forever –spreading the ‘spring’ of ‘nostalgia and memories’ for generations together.

‘Zindagi phoolon ki nahin
Phoolon ki tarah aa aa mehki rahe ae …’

Today’s song is from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Griha Pravesh’.

‘Griha Pravesh’ was directed by Basu Bhattacharya.

Basu Bhattacharya was also the writer and producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Shamila Tagore, Sarika, Master Bittoo, Sudha Chopra, Manik Dutt, Vimal Joshi, Raj Verma, Nandlal Sharma, R.S. Chopra, Satay Bannerjee, Shashi Jain, Tarun Mujherjee, Nilesh, Khoka Mukherjee, Danny, Master Bharat, and Nitin Sethi.
Dinesh Thakur, Priya Darshini, Ranjan, Devendra and Gulzar made a friendly appearance in this movie.

Script of this movie was written by Gulzar and Basu Bhattacharya.
Editing of this movie was done by Om Prakash Makkar.
Dialogues of this movie were written by Gulzar, and he also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Yesudas, Sulakshana Pandit, Chandrani Mukherjee, Pankaj Mitra, and Bhupendra had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kanu Roy.

Today’s song is sung by Bhupendra Singh and is a background song in the movie. It happens when the titles of this movie are rolling down.

Lyrics are by Gulzar and music is composed by Kanu Roy.

(I had noted this song more than five years back during my stay in Kenya and had earlier saved it for a special post.
Later on our dear Prakash ji had also sent the lyrics for this song with other remaining songs of this movie.).

Hullo Atuldom

“Trimoorti” (1974) was produced and directed by Rajendra Bhatia. It had a cast of Parveen Babi, Kanchan Mattoo, Arpana Choudhary, Sanjay Khan, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani, Achala Sachdev, A.K. Hangal, Arvind Trivedi, Gulshan Bawra, Krishnakant, and I.S.Johar, Parveen Paul, Keshto Mukherjee, Sarita Joshi etc. Its music director was Rahul Dev Burman and Gulshan Bawra was the lyricist.

The blog has this song which was posted in 2017 on Parveen Babi’s anniversary.
I was reminded of this movie when I saw one of its song on some channel. The song had Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan uniformly dressed. That made me wonder “what is happening!!!” as actors normally like to standout or look unique etc. I also saw a few other songs and in most of these the heroes are uniformly dressed. I haven’t seen the movie but I presume there must be an element of comedy in it if the song with this post is an indication. It has Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan pampering their mother in the voices of Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar and Bhupinder.

4th January is the remembrance date of Panchamda, a.k.a. Rahul Dev Burman. 3rd January was the 81st birthday of Sanjay Khan and 1st january was the 82nd birthday of Govardhan Asrani known popularly as Asrani. This post wishes Sanjay Khan and Asrani (belated) wishes health and happiness on their birthdays and thank RDB for giving us years of happiness with his music.

Hullo Atuldom

2015 was the first time I wrote a post for this celebrity’s birthday. I will not say that I am a huge fan of his but I definitely like is work. He is one of the many actors who are in the film industry due to the legendary Pransaab i.e. this celebrity is inspired by or may even be a fan of Pransaab and has enacted a variety of characters on-screen much like the legend Pransaab.

Today’s celebrity began by doing inconsequential roles from 1975 after arriving in MAYANAGARI Bombay from New Delhi where Kirorimal College was his Alma-mater and is also trained from Pune’s FTII. He may have been in blink-and-miss roles in some Dara Singh and Arjun Hingorani films before Sunil Dutt cast him in the role of an antagonist in his son’s (Sanjay Dutt) launch movie ‘Rocky’ and also the named him Shakti Kapoor, his birthname was Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor. His next two big movies were Feroz Khan’s ‘Qurbani’ (1980) which released before ‘Rocky’ (1981) and Subhash Ghai’s ‘Hero’ (1983). 1983 also had him appear in Sridevi’s Bollywood debut ‘Himmatwala’. 1981 saw him in big and small roles in ‘Naseeb’, ‘Poonam’, ‘Kaatilon Ke kaatil’, ‘Wardaat’, ‘Dhanwaan”, ‘Aapas Ki Baat’ etc. But the standout or big films of his initial days are definitely ‘Rocky’, ‘Qurbani’, ‘Hero’ and ‘Himmatwala’. But even in that period we do recall him as Kadar Khan’s younger son in ‘Naseeb’, the free-loading Portuguese Captain Gomes in ‘Armaan’ (1981), the totla (lisping) Mangal in ‘Satte Pe Satta’ (1982), and then there were more.

Post ‘Himmatwala’ he was a permanent fixture in many South Indian productions which had him team up with Kadar Khan, Asrani and Aruna Irani in movies like ‘Mawaali'(1983), ‘Tohfa’ (1984), ‘Maqsad’ (1984) etc. He was seen in comic characters in ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1989), ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ (1994) etc. He is one of the few actors whose looks could pass him off as a ‘good guy’ before the main characters of the movie realise that he was up to ‘no-good’, he is and was extremely good-looking. He was a decent enough dancer too as we have witnessed in ‘Rocky’, ‘Hero’, ‘Dance Dance’ (alongside Mithun Chakraborty), ‘Inquilaab’ (alongside Amitabh Bachchan in a guest appearance), and all the ‘n’ number of Govinda movies of the early ’90s starting with ‘Raja Babu’ (1994).

The trigger for today’s song is a social media app. There is a group dedicated to (what else) Bollywood music where the host sets some theme and group members post song-links of the songs they remember, the only condition being that particular song should not have been already posted by another member. Bollywood music treasure-pot being what it is, many songs will be common on multiple themes, but that is allowed. The theme over the last two days was songs whose lyrics include words and phrases related to STARS ( तारा, तारे, सितारा, सितारे etc.) One member posted the song which I am presenting here, today. I was looking for the word related to ‘stars’ in the the song, through the song, considering it is one of my all-time loved song. So I asked the person who posted it: “where are the stars in the song?” And he replied “at the absolute beginning”. Silly me!!! forgot the start of the song itself!!Emoji
This song is an all-male chorus by Bhupinder, R D Burman, Sapan Chakravarthy, Gulshan Bawra and The Kishore Kumar. Except for Amitabh Bachchan lip syncing mostly to Kishore Kumar all other singers are used randomly for the various actors with RDB doing all the extra vocals and Gulshan Bawra doing the “Haaye”. It is written by Gulshan Bawra and tuned by R D Burman It is filmed on a set of characters who are called Ravi, Som, Mangal, Budh, Guru, Shukra and Shani (usually addressed in a modern way as Sunny). The characters are all brothers who are living by themselves on a large farm; if the story was set in any part of the US of A then it may have been called a Ranch. An elegant lady enters the life of these bachelors as their Bhabhi (eldest wife’s brother of course) and is shocked to see the condition that the brothers live in. She first transforms their Huliya (appearance), teaches them etiquette ands also how to be good and cordial to ladies. Promptly, all the younger brothers also find beautiful girls and cupid strikes. The result of cupid striking is today’s song. After writing all this do I need to name the movie ?

I shall simply add why I love Shakti Kapoor in this song:- he gives a different expression to each “Haay”. I have heard or read an anecdote by Sachin (Pilgaonkar who played Shani a.k.a Sunny in the movie) that the large jeep used in this song had its bonnet open and Paintal (played Budh sometimes addressed as Buddhu) nearly fell onto the bonnet as shown in the song. I will also identify the other brothers- Ravi was Amitabh Bachchan, Som was Sudhir, Guru was Kanwaljit Singh, and Shukra was Vikram Sahu (also credited as Vimal Sahu in some places, was son of yesteryear actor/producer/director Kishore Sahu).

Let us listen to this lively song and wish Shakti Kapoor on his birthday.

‘Kahaan Tak Aasmaan Hai-1984’ was directed by Mahmood Qureshi for ‘Shaily Suman Productions, New Delhi’. It had Kanwaljeet, Deepa, Dr Shreeram Lagoo, A.K. Hangal, Ashalata, Arpada Chaudhari, Rakesh Bedi and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.06.1984.

This movie had as many as seven songs – all written by Kaifi Azmi and music was composed by Raghunath Seth. Asha Bhonsle, Bhupinder, Anuradha Paudwal and Kailash Shrivastava had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

S.No. Song title Singer/s
01 Aaj mujhe seene se lagaa lo, pyaas bujhaa do Asha Bhonsle
02 Aao wahaan tanhaayi mein tahlen Bhupinder Singh, Anuradha Paudwal
03 Ho, cham cham chikaaraa haay… Asha Bhonsle
04 Jab bhi choom letaa hoon in haseen aankhon ko Bhupinder Singh
05 Koyi jab se shareeq e kaaravaan hai Bhupinder Singh
06 Raastaa bhi haseen, hamsafar bhi haseen Kailash Shrivastava
07 Ho zulfon ki ghataayen tere liye mere yaar Asha Bhonsle

Today I am presenting the song number five as mentioned above i.e., ‘koyi jab se shariik -e-kaaravaan hai’ sung by Bhupinder Singh.

I had listened to this song for the first time on the ‘cassette’ brought out by HMV, which was a compilation of the songs sung by Bhupinder Singh. I think the compilation cassette was titled as ‘Karoge Yaad To …’ and had many of the beautiful songs sung by Bhupinder Singh. I remember, I had gifted this cassette to one of my colleagues later, who liked these songs very much. That was in 86-87 or 87-88, if I remember correctly.

Since then, I have not forgotten this song as I like it very much, but all these years I do not remember to have heard it anywhere else such as on Radio or TV programs. I think this movie ‘Kahaan Tak Aasmaan Hai-1984’ was an obscure movie of its time and it as forgotten easily. Though I have not listened to the songs of this movie other than the today’s one, I think the other songs too required a listening as the music is score by Raghunath Seth. Also, the verses having written by Kaifi Azmi makes it special.

Today 6th February 2021 is the eighty-first birthday of singer Bhupinder Singh (born on 06th Feb’1940). On this occasion we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

With today’s song, the movie ‘Kahaan Tak Aasmaan Hai-1984’ makes its debut on the blog.

let us now enjoy this wonderful song …

Today 6th January’2021 is thirty-fourth Remembrance Anniversary of Music Director Jaidev (born on 3 August 1918 and passed away on 6th January’ 1987).

When I checked his filmography, I noted that he has given music to only forty-two movies (including one Nepali movie) though his first movie as music director came in 1955 – ‘Joru Ka Bhai’ and the last movie he composed music was ‘Zumbish-1986’ (if data in the sources on net is correct).

In his film career Jaidev has given us unforgettable music and even some immortal songs which will always be cherished by music lovers.

Earlier I wished to present this post with his complete filmography, however I could not compile the data in time to send this post. And since I do not want to miss this opportunity to share this song which I first listened to on radio and later had in my collection in a ‘two cassette set’ – ‘Yaad Aati Rahi -A Homage to Jaidev – brought by HMV in ‘1987’. I had bought this set on 17.12.1987 in my collection.

This album contains songs from ‘Ham Dono-1961’, ‘Samundari Daaku-1956’, ‘Joru Ka Bhai-1955’, ‘Anjali-1957’, ‘Kinaare-Kinaare-1963’, ‘Mujhe Jeene Do-1963’, ‘Do Boond Paani-1971’, ‘Aayi Teri Yaad-1980’, ‘Prem Parbat-1973’, ‘Maan Jaayiye-1972’, ‘Alaap-1977’, ‘Reshma Aur Shera-1971’, ‘Gaman-1978’, ‘Dooriyaan-1979’, ‘Parinay-1974’, ‘Gharonda-1977’, and ‘Tumhaare Liye-1978’. (This way I have tried to note his notable movies here)

And it contains one song from the movie ‘Wohi Baat’. I was aware of this song since then and may be had heard it on radio too. In the cassette it has the Asha Bhonsle version.
However, one day I was just humming this song and I remember it was in my collection. But I was under the impression that it was a song sung by Bhupinder Singh. Maybe I had sometime heard this in the voice of Bhupinder Singh on radio.
So, when I checked the blog, I was surprised that this song has not been posted yet. Then I looked for it on the internet and found both versions of this song.

The movie name was mentioned as ‘Wohi Baat’. Finally, when I checked the HFGK Vol- V (1981-1985), I became aware of the details of this movie and other information about this movie that it was released under the ‘title’ as ‘Sameera-1982’, though the music was released on gramophone records under the title ‘Wohi Baat’.

Today on Jaidev’s ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ I wish to introduce this wonderful song (and the movie too) on the blog.

‘Sameeraa-1982’ was directed by Vinay Shukla for ‘Sanket Chitra, Bombay’.

It had Parikshit Sahni, Shabana Azmi (as Sameeraa), Mithun Chakravarty, Amol Palekar and others.
This movie was based on the story written by Kamleshwar. Vinay Shukla who directed this movie had also written it.
K.K. Mahajan and Hasubhai J. Shah were the producers of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.04.1982.

As per HFGK Vol -V five songs were recorded for this movie but details of only four songs is available. The title for the fifth song is left blank.

All the songs for this movie were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and music was composed by Jaidev.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song sung by Bhupinder Singh and Asha Bhonsle as two different solo versions and pay our tribute to Jaidev and his immortal music.

With today’s song ‘Sameeraa-1982’ makes its debut on the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

There is a test match on, ‘Down Under’, and I am recalling the words of Sunny Gavaskar. He had hosted a short tele-series in the late 80s. He had also written his autobiography “Sunny Days”.

What I am quoting here and often prior to today, is something that I have read in “Sunny Days” or heard it on the said serial. It could also be Sunny Gavaskar in his avatar as a commentator. His advice to the batsmen used to be that “One should always reach the milestone of say a 50 or 100 with a four, six or at the most run two runs. This would cover up for any score that the scorer had inadvertently credited to extras”. Possibly this may have been due to his experiences at the start of his career when scorers used to do their work manually.

My reason for quoting Sunny Bhai (as he is sometimes addressed by his co-commentators) is that it has been a while since my last post, that had been a milestone for me. And following Sunnybhai’s advice my quick single (next post) should have come a few days back. But that has not been. I had many posts in mind for various birthdays and anniversaries but I have been away. But, as the elders say ‘better late than never’.

So coming to today’s post it is to wish an actor who is blessed with a good voice almost equaling Amitabh Bachchan’s baritone, a good height again almost equal to Mr. Bachchan and looks that far surpasses many of his contemporaries. He was born in Quetta in present day Pakistan a year before independence, educated in Hyderabad (in India) and was a Tennis and Swimming champion.

His career in the entertainment industry began with Radio Shows (which he got thanks to his voice) and stage plays. He is also trained at FTII. On relocating to Mumbai his experience on radio and stage kept him going and his looks helped him gain modelling assignments; I remember him in ads for ‘Lifebouy soap’ and also ‘Charminar cigarettes’. His Bollywood debut happened in 1977 with “Jeewan Mukt” but it was his role in “Laawaaris” as a potter that is my first recall of him. Hope that rings a bell in the mind of the readers.

Yes, I am speaking of the National Award winning, still handsome Suresh Oberoi. He turns a year older today. He has done a few romantic roles too in his career which are overshadowed by the character roles he has played. We can recall him as ‘Mukhi’ in “Mirch Masaala”, the tormentor in “Coolie”,”Shraddhanjali”, etc. He has played an inspector in a number of movies and may be holding the record for the third highest by an actor after Jagdish Raj and Iftikaar. 🙂

Today’s song is from the 1982 released, Satyen Bose directed “Tumhare Bina”. It had Suresh Oberoi and Swaroop Sampat playing a couple and parents to a little boy. He is a film producer whose wife is suspicious of his relation with a beautiful actress (Simple Kapadia). The couple separate and Robin Dutt (Suresh Oberoi) is forced to abduct his son, go into hiding etc. The movie had songs penned by Govind Moonis and tuned by Raam Laxman. Bhupinder Singh, Behroz Chatterjee (never heard this name before), Manhar Udhas, and Gurpreet Kaur (not heard this name too) were the playback singers used. Apparently the movie was a remake of Kramer v/s Kramer.

Today we have a song which shows that Suresh Oberoi would have made a good romantic hero too. It is duet by Bhupinder and Behroz Chatterjee.

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today 18th July is the Remembrance Day of Rajesh Khanna. He passed away on 18th July 2012. As a tribute to him here is song from the 1980 movie ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’.

My last post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna-The Phenomenon’ came almost one and half year back on his birth anniversary. In that post I had discussed a song from the 1979 movie ‘Amardeep’ and for today’s post we move to Rajesh Khanna movies in 1980.

The seventies ended on a positive note for Rajesh Khanna with ‘Amardeep’ being a hit at the box office. But, then 1980 was more like ‘turning around’ year for him on a positive note. And few of his movies performed well at the box office though only one of them viz. ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’ became a ‘hit’ movie.

If we look back on the year 1980 from the point of view of Rajesh Khanna’s film career this was an important year for him – after his fourteen years in the film industry and recovering back after a string of commercially unsuccessful movies at the box-office.

However, these unsuccessful movies saw him playing different roles and it was like if he himself was trying to get out of his ‘Rajesh Khanna’ image and maybe it was a time for him where as an ‘actor’ he was doing an introspection of self.

As an actor he was looking for stronger roles. Nobody could have imagined that any star but Rajesh Khanna will be playing a role of a ‘psychopath who rapes and kills young women’ in those times in Hindi movies, but Kaka accepted this role in ‘Red Rose’. The movie was praised by all though it bombed at the box office. But it is considered a fine piece of the talent of the director Bharathiraja and Rajesh Khanna’s performance in it.

The other four movies of the same year 1980 viz ‘Phir Wohi Raat’, ‘Aanchal’, ‘Bandish’ and the today’s movie ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’ also had him playing different roles a like a ‘psychiatrist’ in the ‘horror’ genre ‘Phir Wohi Raat’, a villager in ‘Aanchal’, a medical college student in ‘Bandish’ and a rich jeweler’s son in ‘Thodi Si Bewafaai’.

He appeared in the following movies in 1980;

‘Thodi Si Bewafaai-1980’ was directed by Esmayeel Shroff for Konark Kombine International. It was produced by Nand Mirani and Srichand Asrani, while Rashid Ismail was the co-producer of this movie. It was presented by Nand B. Mansharamaney. Subhash Sonik was the chief assistant director of this movie. Vasant Katkar was the art director of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Rajoo. Esmayeel Shroff was the writer of this movie and its dialogues of this movie were written by Moin-ud-din. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.04.1980.

It had Rajesh Khanna, Shabana Azmi, Sushant Ray, Padmini Kolhapure, Deven Verma, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, AK Hangal, Jalal Agha, Shashi Kiran, Raja Bakshi, Urmila Bhatt, Gayatri, Gouri Khorana, Preeti Ganguly, Deena Pathak, Leela Mishra, Madhu Chauhan, Lalita Kumari, Murad, Dharamveer, Moolchand, Ramavtar, Manmauji, Jameel, Kishore, Sunder Taneja, Gopal Sirkar, Mani and others. This movie introduced Dr. Maya Alagh.

This movie had total six songs written by Gulzar and composed by Khayyam Saab. Singers Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Sulakshana Pandit, Anwar, Jagjit Kaur and Bhupendra had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Today’s song is a background song (cum theme song too) sung by Bhupinder Singh.

This song is in three parts – first part happens as the movie starts with court proceedings where the court rules in favor of Neema (Shabana Azmi) and allows her to live separately from Arun Choudhary (Rajesh Khanna). The court also gives the custody of their child to Neema and allows Arun to meet the child for two hours once in a week on Sunday. As Neema, her child, her brother and Arun came out of the court, Arun once again tries to convince Neema to think about her decision but she is adamant and leaves with the child. Here the titles of the movie are rolling and the song continues.

Second part happens when Neema visits an optical shop for getting her spectacles repaired. The shop owner is Deven Verma and Arun (Rajesh Khanna) is working there. Here again very less dialogue is exchanged between them and Neema leaves the shop as Arun keeps watching her. The second part plays in the background here.

Third part of this song gets played when Arun visits Neema after a gap of twelve years to get his son back with him (as allowed by the court when the child completes fourteen years of age). However, he is told by Neema that Nandu (Sushant Ray) their son has gone to Bombay without telling her. Arun leaves in fury threatening Neema to meet once again in court. As he leaves Neema, who is shattered in grief, regrets to herself …

meraa to jeewan ujad gayaa …
main muqadamaa jeet kar haar gayi
tum muqadamaa haar kar jeet gaye
tumhaare liye Nandu sab kuchh hai, aur main kuchh bhi nahin,
ek baar mujhe bulaa kar to dekh liyaa hota, saaraa jeewan tumhaare pichhe pichhe chalti rehti …

Enjoy the words of Gulzar Saab, and Bhupinder Singh’s voice a perfect fit for such poignant philosophical songs and Khayyam Saab’s timeless music.

I have deliberately selected this background theme song for today where we can watch and enjoy the nuanced performances by both Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi.

Enjoy the ‘times’ and ‘charisma’ of Superstar – Rajesh Khanna. . .

kehnewaalon ka kuchh nahin jaata
sehnewaale kamaal karte hain
kaun dhoondhe jawaab dardon ke
log to bas sawaal karte hain aen
aaj bichhde hain

आज बिछड़े हैं
आज बिछड़े हैं
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए

आज बिछड़े हैं
आज बिछड़े है
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए

ज़ख्म दिखते नहीं अभी लेकिन
ज़ख्म दिखते नहीं अभी लेकिन
ठंडे होंगे तो दर्द निकलेगा आ
तैश उतरेगा वक़्त का जब भी
चेहरा अन्दर से ज़र्द निकलेगा आ आ आ

आज बिछड़े हैं
आज बिछड़े है
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए

कहनेवालों का कुछ नहीं जाता
सहनेवाले कमाल करते हैं
कौन ढूंढें जवाब दर्दों के
लोग तो बस सवाल करते है
आज बिछड़े हैं
आज बिछड़े है
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए

आज बिछड़े है
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए

कल जो आएगा जाने क्या होगा
कल जो आएगा जाने क्या होगा
बीत जाए जो कल नहीं आते ए
वक़्त कि शाख तोड़ने वालों
टूटी शाखों पे फल नहीं आते
आज बिछड़े हैं
आज बिछड़े है
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए

कच्ची मिटटी हैं
दिल भी इंसा भी
देखने ही में सख्त लगता है ए
आँसू पोंछे के आंसूओं के निशाँ
खुश्क होने में वक़्त लगता है ए ए
आज बिछड़े हैं
आज बिछड़े है
कल का डर भी नहीं
ज़िन्दगी इतनी मुख़्तसर भी नहीं
आज बिछड़े हैं ए
आज बिछड़े हैं ए
आज बिछड़े हैं ए
