“Warrant”(1975) was directed by Pramod Chakraborty for N P International, Bombay. The movie had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Dara Singh, Satish Kaul, Ajit, Pran, Jankidas, Sulochana, Aparna Chaudhary, Seema Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, V Gopal, Birbal, Habeeb, Pal Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti, Viju Khote, Ujagar Singh, Lamba, Ratan Gaurang, Praveen Pal, Bunty, Madan Puri, Joginder etc in it.

The movie is described as a “social” movie in HFGK, but it was an “action” movie, ie Dev Anand style action movie. 🙂

I have not seen the movie, but from what I can guage from the picturisation of the songs, Dev Anand plays a crook escaping from the law with Zeenat Aman as his accomplice. Zeenat Aman would play a similar role with Amitabh Bachchan in “Don”(1978) and that movie, unlike “Warrant” (1975) went on to become a super duper hit mainly thanks to Amitabh Bachchan’s superb performance.

I have noticed that the story line of Dev Anand movies of 1970s used to be great but Dev Saab’s insistence on playing the hero in these movies ensured that the movies failed to do justice to the story and they would get forgotten soon. Thankfully, Dev Saab would often reject some movies and his roles in those movies were then given to some other actor and that actor enacted the roles with aplomb. For instance, Dev saab had rejected the movie “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957). That role was then offered to a strugling actor called Shammi Kapoor and we all know that the movie “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957) launched the career of Shammi Kapoor. 16 years later, Dev saab refused another movie. This movie was then offered to another struggling actor. He played the role so well that the movie launched him as the next big star. That movie, which Dev saab rejected was “Zanjeer”(1973) which was offered to Amitabh Bachchan and the rest is history.

Had Dev saab not rejected “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”(1957) and “Zanjeer”(1973) then HF world may not have discovered Shammi “yahoo” Kapoor and Amitabh “angry young man” Bachchan. And these movies, with Dev Saab in lead roles would have done some moderate business and the movie would have ended up along the lines of say “Warrant”(1975).

I can say the same about other Dev Saab starrer movies like “Ye Gulistaan Hamaara”(1973), “Des Pardes”(1978) etc. They all had great story line, but they failed to do justice to the story line and ended up as normal movies instead of all time super hits.

Coming to “Warrant”(1975), the songs of this movie had caught the imagination of HFM lovers during its time. Its song Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana was a big rage, thanks to the unique “kuk kuk” sound contained in it. Other songs too were very popular.

The movie had four songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog so far.
Here are the details :-

Blog post number Song Date of posting Blog day
102 Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana 18 September 2008 62
10515 Main tumse mohabbat karti hoon 19 November 2014 2315
15323 Ladi najariya ladi chali re phuljhadi 3 December 2019 4155

One can see that the most popular song of the movid, Ruk jaana O jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana was covered in the blog within two months after the launch of the blog. But the second song from the movie was covered six years later. The third song was discussed after another five years.

So a movie with just four songs has not yet been YIPPEED in the blog in nearly 12 years !

Here is the fourth and final song from the movie. This song “suno bhai baaraati” was quite popular during its time.

I have not watched the movie. I watched the picturisation of the song just no. Song is great but the picturisation would not impress people who insist on trying to find logic in the proceedings. The picturisation shows Dev saab and Zeenat Aman being pursued by police. A Christian wedding is taking place in a nearby church. The hero and heroine go and get dressed as groom and bride and give police the slip. I never knew that one can get dressed in wedding dress so fast. where did they locate their dresses so fast ? And how come the people gathered to attend the wedding in the Church started celebrating the fake wedding of our hero and heroine with such gusto and theyeven sang chorus in Konkani in the song ?

Here is the song. It is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I am unable to mnote don the Konkani portion sung by the chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with Konkani to help fill in the Konkani lyrics.

ith this song, all the four songs of “Warrant”(1975) get covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

I have been getting reminders and ‘pokes’ (a term from Facebook) in the form of personal messages from a few Atulites who are asking me why the sudden slump on my part. Now I know what Atulji goes through when all of us question him on “Blank days”. I also am feeling like the first-follower of the blog ‘Rajaji’ who took a few weeks to reach his 200th post with ghodi pe hoke sawaar.

This slump can be attributed to the festival season and having my Mom-in-law for company. I would like to copy-paste a thought that Rajaji has written in his 200th post (sorry for not taking your permission Rajaji)

“No excuses though – if Atul can write up and post songs every single day, I just cannot have an excuse for taking five weeks for one post. :-)”.

In spite of the mentioned reasons I managed to sneak in my post number 399 and that was only 10 days back.

December 3rd is one of those days in the calendar, followed by ASAD, which has two occasions to have special posts. To start of let me wish the “Raunaq-e-blog” a very happy birthday. This was a title bestowed on the recipient in a post three years ago on this date. May she have a healthy, peaceful, musical and joyful day. May her appearances on the blog and WA group be more regular. Wishing our Ben Katie a very happy birthday. On this day I present you a song of the forever PACHCHEES romantic hero of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and the better part of the 80s. May you be as Evergreen and Hyperactive as him.

I went through the filmography of the forever Pachchees Dev Anand and found a few songs of his first decade in the film industry yet to be posted here on the blog. I had almost made up my mind about the song too. One such song was from the movie “Ham Bhi Insaan Hain” (1948) of which the blog has only four from a possible nine songs. But the hurdle for me was the name of the music director “H P Das”. A name new to me; as also the names Amir Banu, Ramola Devi, German, Niharika, Pal, G. Das etc. I decided that this movie and its songs should be handled by the more knowledgeable stalwarts of ASAD. I decided that I shall tread on safe territory and have chosen a song from a movie of the 70s.

I have seen this movie ages ago on Doordarshan and recall that it had something to do with the construction of a bridge to connect India’s North East with the rest of the country. The favoured villain of those times- Pran- played a chieftain of that region who is against the bridge construction as this will lead to the betterment of the locals whom he has kept under his bondage. Sharmila Tagore played the local girl who is ready to take up arms at her Chief’s behest and goes on a mission to sabotage the bridge. Dev Anand played the engineer in-charge of the Bridge Project and also the reason for Sharmila Tagore’s change of opinion about the bridge, its construction, and her chief ‘Deng Do Rani’ (Pran). Johnny Walker, Lalita Pawar, Sujit Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Jayshree T., Keshto Mukherjee, Asrani, Iftikaar etc played supporting characters. The movie had music by S. D. Burman and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The movie’s title was picked up from Allama Iqbal’s patriotic song “Saare Jahaan se Achcha”. In fact “saare jahaan se achcha” features in the movie too in the voice of Sushma Shrestha and chorus.

Gori gori gaaon ki gori re was the first song to be posted. Mera naam yaao mere paas aao was next. Then came this song Naina soyi soyi raina jaage jaage by our in-house encyclopedia who has made some interesting observations about Lata singing with Uncommon Singers. There was another uniqueness about that song- it was possibly the only time when Lata, SD Burman and RD Burman featured together.
The last song to be posted has been Ho tushima ree tushima aa gaya toofaan by Sadanand Kamathji and it was a tribute to Burmanda on his anniversary.

There are three more songs left of which the film version of “Saare Jahaan se Achcha” is one.

Before we get on to the song I must thank Atulji for allowing us as contributors on his blog and posting my mail to him giving details of the song as my first post ever as lyrics- contributor. That prompted me to send a few more lyrics as farmaishes and then the writing bug bit me and the number of days between my posts have been steadily reducing. I know my contributions are not masterpieces but my own thoughts and feelings. How I wish I had the patience of Sadanandji to write well-researched posts. Or the knowledge of Arunkumarji whom I call Guruji or even the resources (read HFGK) of people like Sudhri, Avinashji etc. I must also mention the love of Nahmji’s love for poetry and poets and her posts have been enlightening.

Today’s song is filmed on Dev Anand and a bunch of kids something on the lines wallah kya nazaara hai mausam bada pyaara hai, galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani; hans tu hardam khushiyaan ya-gham etc. These were the songs that followed “Ye Gulsitaan Hamaara” but all were feel-good songs where Dev Anand is trying to cheer the crowd. It is in the voice of Kishore Kumar. It is nine years since Devsaab passed away and it feels like yesterday. Thinking of the fabulously stylish and charming actor who entertained us for decades.

Once again wishing our Ben Katie on her birthday. Let us have all the birthday songs on loop for her.

“Man Pasand” (1980 – censored on 26-6-1980 and released on 11-7-1980) was among the first few movies whose music cassette was purchased by my father along with “Yaarana” when they hit the market. And since then I am a huge fan of their songs. I Know almost all of them by heart.
This was a movie produced by Amit Khanna and directed by Basu Chatterji. Rajesh Roshan was the music director and Amit Khanna himself wrote the lyrics. The movie itself was inspired by the famous stage play by George Bernard Shaw – ‘Pygmalion’ (first published in 1913), and also on the hugely popular iconic film ‘My Fair Lady’ (1964 – Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn). The movie stars Dev Anand, Tina Munim, Girish Karnad, Simple Kapadia, Leela Mishra, Jalal Agha (appears as a guest in the song with this post), Piloo Wadia and Mehmood.

The movie has Dev Anand and Girish Karnad playing best friends, bachelors and musicologists. They encounter a loud and foul-mouthed vendor of ‘datun’ {neem branches} in the late-night local trains of Mumbai. Then and there, Dev (Pratap) throws a challenge that he can transform the unpolished girl into a graceful and talented singer and Karnad (Kashinath) picks up the bet and agrees to marry the girl if Pratap is successful.”

The above is from the last post that I wrote for this movie, in 2018 to celebrate Dev Anand’s 95th birthday.

We revisit the movie today. It has songs in the voice of another legend. When this movie was being made i.e. at the time of recording the songs of this movie, our Nightingale or Saraswathi- incarnate (as she is addressed by her ardent fans) must have been in her late 40s or just turned 50. She had been in the industry for nearly 37-38 years having stepped into the film world at the young age of 13, with the sole aim of supporting her family after the untimely death of her father. There was a time when she was rejected by Sashadhar Mukherjee for having a “thin-voice”. But it is that same “thin-voice” which was used in later years for songs that were filmed as early morning songs- “jaago mohan pyaare jaago” (Jaagte Raho); “jyoti kalash chalke” (Bhabhi Ki Choodiyan); “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” & “Bhor bhaye panghat pe” (Satyam Shivam Sundaram); and the bhajan which Saira Banu lip syncs in the morning hours in “Shaagird” – ‘Kanha kanha aan padi main tere dwar’. These are only a sample of what India’s Nightingale -Lata Mangeshkar – has given us over a career span of about 66-67 years. From the discography available on various websites it looks like she has stopped singing film songs sometime in 2010- that is why I have said that the career span is about 66/67 years. Of course, there was a time when she used to sing for actresses who were 50 years younger to her; then she switched to singing one or at the most two songs per movie after 2001 but has kept her date with recording songs by bringing out non-film albums and bhajans etc. I read somewhere that after a 14-year hiatus she recorded a song for some movie called “Dunno Y—Na Jaane Kyun” (2010).

She is a recipient of various awards including the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 1989, the Padma Bhushan (1969), Padma Vibhushan (1999) and finally the Bharat Ratna in 2001. She definitely is India’s Ratna (Gem), don’t know if we will have another like her ever!!!!

Coming back to the song for this post. This is the song by which Pratap (Dev Anand) introduces a fully trained & graceful Kamli (Tina) to upper class, high-society, party-going friends of his. He showcases her as an accomplishment of his scientific method of music coaching. The song which is composed by Rajesh Roshan as a semi classical number was picturised on a young Tina Munim and gives us a sample of what the ‘Koyal Kanthi’ Lata Mangeshkar is all about. Why I say sample is because this is a very short song. There are other songs where she has sung full classical and semi classical for close to ten minutes or even more. Here I remember another song where, in a Dev Anand movie, S D Burman has given Lata Didi (as the film industry addresses her) an 8½ minute song which has various ragas incorporated in it (any guesses which song I am referring to).

“Man Pasand” has had a rather slow journey on the blog. The movie has 8 songs of which the first one in Mohd. Rafi’s voice was posted in March of 2009. The previous song posted was in 2018 on the occasion of Dev Anand’s birth anniversary.

Here is the penultimate song the post for which began a day before Devsaab’s birth anniversary in 2019.

I can write a lot more about the song and the near-parallel careers of Devsaab and Latadidi in the film industry. But I choose to halt here.
Wishing our dear Lata Mangeshkar, a very Happy 91st birthday. Salute to her on her long innings in the industry.

Dev Anand – 97th Birth Anniversary
—————————————————–
Dharamdev Pishorimal Anand (26 September 1923 – 3 December 2011), is the full name of the dashing, debonair yet chocolate hero of the 50’s, also nicknamed as the ever green actor, he was a hero, director, producer and what not. He is known for never say die attitude and being a gentleman of the old world sense. He formed a trio of superstars with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor in the black n white era.

He was like a shining star which kept shining when all his neighbour, were laid down by age, health and simply lack of motivation. In the old ways, the culture of the film industry was about respect of seniors, treating others including junior artists, with respect and values which were based on humanity and equality in opportunities etc. The background of Dev Anand is an educated family of means. Plus that was an erawhen people with means had rich tastes and it converted into their conduct and dealing with fellow human beings. I have no knowledge how charitable or not Dev Anand himself was, because charity is not just sharing of monetary wealth, but sharing of positivity and knowledge also amounts of charity. Of course, there are people with such meanness in their makeup they will not lift an eyebrow, to facilitate someone else. And if such a person did lift an eyebrow, and someone else was slightly benefitted from it, the former will not like it. Ah…. I don’t know where I am going with this, but this is not towards Dev Anand.

I have recently seen his movies, “Kaala Bazaar” “Manzil” and “Kaala Paani” on youtube. Other unforgettable movie are such classics as “Guide”, “Tere Ghar Ke Saamne , “Jewel theif”, etc. I have read the Wikipedia page on Dev Anand. As I read through it, things got curious, as there is not filmography there. Very few films are mentioned, some of them I am yet to see. Zeenat Aman finds a mention as being discovered by him, but there is no mention of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna”. Also I found amiss the mention of his brothers Vijay Anand and Chetan Anand who were instrumental in his life and career. No mention of his great equation with SDB-RDB and Kishore Kumar.

There is also this line :
“Guru Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Pran, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Nargis, Kishore Kumar, S.D. Burman and R.D. Burman were his closest friends from the film industry.” If a man is known by the company he keeps, than there are no better examples.

The song I am presenting as a tribute to Dev Anand on his 97th birth anniversary is from the film “Amir Garib” (1974). The song comprises of two separate solos, by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, which are the mirror images of each other. The song picturization and the lyrics are also mirroring each other. Both songs are picturised on Dev Anand and Hema malini, singing the two solos. With colourful clothes, a beach, an open jeep on the beach, than the Swimming pool at the Sun & Sand just beyond the Juhubeach(Common in both songs, with extra’s looking like Europeans in colourful swim suits) and a park road with a tonga ride. This is a beach song, tonga song, car song swimming pool song, teasing song, pacifying song all rolled into one.

About version songs which are mirror image of each other, I can recall one song from the film “Himalaya ki god mein”
.
The following three songs from “Ameer Gareeb”(1974)are already posted in the blog :

Song Date posted

The post is by Peevesie’s Mom which has a synopsis of the film. Another trivia is that the first song from this movie appeared on the blog as early as 21.06.2009, within its first year.

In Memory of Meena Kumari :

Mehjabeen Bano, who gained name, fame and huge popularity as Meena Kumari, was born on 1st August 1932. Child artist, tragedy queen, poet and singer, are the various attributes to her name. Had she lived to see this day, she would have been 88 today i.e. the two fat ladies of housie. Really, she was just 40 when she left this world, her temporary abode.

Honestly, I have not seen many of her movies. Some of the earlier movies like “Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam” and “Chiraag kahan aur roshni kahan” I have seen on TV longback. The unforgettable “Dil Apna aur preet praayi” and “Ghazal”, “Kaajal” , “Mere apne” and “Bahu Begum” also on TV. “Pakeeza” is the only film I have seen on the big screen and revisited in recent times. The songs of ‘Pakeeza” are embedded in mind from early childhood, even before I am conscious of listening to radio.

I belong to a family of film buffs, and the only family outings known to my parents and their brothers and sisters was going to watch movies in Theatre. Discussing about the film stars and their lives and their movies was a favourite pastime of all of them. Emphasis has always been on education, doing well in studies, but watching movies was dangled as a prize in front of us while in school. But none of them bought Records or record players as far as I know. I had not seen a record player in my life or touched one till I was in college. One of my college friend’s father had one. That was one L-P record player, kept in his room, alongwith all his prized possessions of school and college days. That was a separate room, a little far from their house where the family lived. So when exams were near and I would go to the friends place and she will take me to that room, where no one would disturb us and it was a quite place. It was in a chawl system, and that room was kept separate and maintained to be used as guest room as and when need arose. So that was my actual ‘darshan’ of a record player. We played some records available on the player sometime. Afraid of damaging it, we left it alone mostly. I recall only one or two names of those records, one of them was ‘Nasbandi” and other may have been “Dastak”.

Then there is the childhood memory of Pakeeza songs. Usually on a Sunday, one of the nieghbours on the floor above us, who had ‘ishq’ with Pakeeza songs, he would play it in on his record player. That sound has never gone away from the consciousness. Right from ‘inhi logon ne’ to ‘thhaare rahiyo’ to “chalte chalte”. Childhood impressions are very strong, there is no denying that. My knowledge of the Gujarati language also belong to the same period. Terms like “advanu nathi” (don’t touch) and “saras chhe” (Its nice) were never forgotten. It was in the BEST officers quarters, so even if we shifted houses, we were in the same building and nieghbours. The kids all played and grew up together even studied together. But we kids would never go to their house as that aunty was a stickler for neatness and cleanliness of the house and the uncle was a disciplinarian sort of person. So that explains why I never actually saw the record player that played “Pakeeza“ songs most Sundays. Let me make it clear that only the songs of Pakeeza were heard from the house and nothing else. Explains the “Ishq” of Pakeeza songs.

Now of course the record playing era is also over. Youtube is, the be all and the serve all for people like me. Meena Kumari, for me is always about her urdu diction and that voice full of emotions. Some of the material read in urdu magazine’s about her is surfacing in the mind. Like someone saying that she was the most beautiful of all the female artists of her time. Meaning, more beautiful than Madhu Bala ? it is difficult to digest. But her voice and diction is the instantly recognizable feature of her persona and more appealing than her beauty, for my generation.

So I found this song of the film “Tamasha” to post on this occasion. I was put up for this post by Peevicie’s Mom. She acted as a prompt or the catalyst for this writeup. The song is a solo of Lata Mangeshkar, picturised on Meena Kumari. Lyricist is Bharat Vyas. The music composer include Manna dey with Khemchand Prakash. It is not clear whether they composed the songs as a team or separately.

The films cast includes Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar and Kishore Kumar.

I will conclude with a factual impression about Meena Kumari, that she was like a rare flower. It bloomed fascinatingly for a long while, but could not deal with its own beauty and frailty. So it wilted fast in neglect of its soul as the real beauty was in the soul.

Hazaaron saal nargis apni be-noori pe roti hai
Tab kahin jaa ke hota hai chaman mein koyi deedawar paida…..


Song-Bhool sakey na ham tumhen aur tum to jaa ke bhool gaye (Tamaasha)(1952) Singer-Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Khemchand Prakash-Manna Dey

Lyrics

Kyun Ankhiyaan bhar aayin een
kyun Phir koyi yaad aaya aaa
Aaaa aaaa
Kyun Ankhiyaan bhar aayin

Bhool sakey na ham tumhen
Aur tum to jaa ke bhool gaye ae
Bhool sakey na ham tumhen
Aur tum to jaa ke bhool gaye ae
Ro ro ke kehta hai dil
kyun dil ko lagaa ke bhool gaye ae
Bhool sakey na ham tumhen

Bewafaa
Ye kya kiyaa aa aa aa aa
Bewafaa aa
Ye kya kiyaa aa
Dil ke badle gham diyaa
Muskuraayi thhi ghadi bhar
Raat din ab roun piyaa aa
Ek pal ab chain na miley
Tum jhalak dikhaa ke bhool gaye ae
Bhool sakey na ham tumhen
Aur tum to jaa ke bhool gaye ae
Bhool sakey na ham tumhen

Kaun si thhi bairan ghadi wo
Jab ke tujh se uljhe nayan
Kaun si thhi bairan ghadi wo
Jab ke tujh se uljhe nayan
Sukh ke meethhe jhoole mein rum jhum
Jhoom uthhaa thhaa paagal sa mann
Din sunehre raatein rupehli ee eee
Tum mile main huyi magan
Aankh khuli to
Maine dekhaa
Dekhaa thhaa ek jhoothha sapan
Sapnon ke sansaar mein
Mera mann bharmaa ke bhool gaye ae
Bhool sakey na ham tumhen
Aur tum to jaa ke bhool gaye ae
Bhool sakey na ham tumhen

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 89 #
—————————————–

Welcome all to this post where once again I take you all back to the songs of seventies.

I originally wanted to present this post during the ‘Diwali festival’ since this song brings back my memories of ‘Diwali vacation’ days of my childhood. L liked this song as well as the other songs from this movie.

The song is from the ‘1975 movie ‘Warrant’. I was around seven years old then when the movie was released in 1975.

‘Warrant-1975’ had Dev Anand in lead role. And today 3rd December 2019 is the eighth ‘remembrance anniversary’ (26.09.1923-03.12.2011) of actor, producer, director Dev Anand.
We pay our tributes to him and will always be grateful for some of the great roles he played in the Hindi movies and also for the memorable and everlasting music which was a part of most of his movie.

Many new Dev Anand movies were getting released in those years when I was growing, but we were not getting to watch them then. Here when I say new movies means movies like ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’, ‘Ameer Ghareeb’, ‘Warrant’, ‘Jaaneman’, ‘Bullet’, ‘Kalaabaaz’, ‘Darling Darling’, ‘Sahib Bahadur’ etc.

Instead in our colony club’s weekly movie screening we were getting to watch many of his old ‘black and white’ movies, like ‘Sarhad’, ‘Bambai Ka Babu’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota hai’, ‘Pocketmaar’, ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Teen Deviyaan’ etc.
And some the movies like ‘Shareef Badmaash’ I watched in a ‘touring talkies’ may be in 1974-75, and I think I watched some of the movies like ‘Joshilaa’, ‘Des Pardes’ during end seventies or early eighties.

I was not a big fan of Dev Anand in my childhood. But my father was a very big fan of him and because of that I became aware of his old movies and songs from them.
And I vaguely remember to have watched ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’, ‘Ye Gulistaan Hamaara’, ‘Heera Panna’, and ‘Chhupa Rustam’ with my father when I was a child.

Later on, I watched many of Dev Anand movies between 1981-1988 and after that. However, for this post I am restricting myself and the discussion to the decade 1971-1980 only. In all the movies which I watched later including his ‘coloured’ and ‘black & white’ movies I always liked his acting, dialogues deliveries and his style.

However, I am still to watch many of his movies from the seventies which weren’t successful but their music was always very good.

Let us have a look at the Dev Anand movies released from 1971-1980:

20 Lootmaar 1980 27.09.1980 Dev Anand Rajesh Roshan Amit Khanna

The songs from this movie ‘Warrant-1975’ are nostalgic for me since my childhood days, and even though I had never watched this movie until I watched it online this year on ‘Diwali’ day.

I think we watched more movies in the summer vacations than the Diwali vacations, naturally because summer vacations would be longer than Diwali vacations.

I always had a very big nostalgia for the famous three movies and their songs which I remember to have watched during the Diwali festival which were released in the same year in 1974.
These are ‘Bidaai’, ‘Roti’, and ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. I have vague memories of watching these movies with elders in the family or may be all of them viz. my grandmother (my grandfather was still against watching of movies), aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.
I have mentioned about this in my ‘song nostalgia’ on the blog here.

Later I read somewhere that these three movies were released on the same day during Diwali of that year i.e.1974 (14.10.1974, knowledgeable readers can please correct me if I am wrong). Though, now equipped with the information in HFGK if we see the dates of their being given the Censor Certificates are;
Bidaai-09.10.1974, Roti-11.10.1974 and Roti, Kapadaa Aur Makaan-13.09.1974.

And those days ‘hit’ movies always used to run over fifteen weeks to twenty-five weeks. So, people like us staying in near by towns from the city would get to watch the movies on holidays or during the vacations when all family members would visit the city where my grand parents were staying.

‘Warrant-1975’ was passed by Censor Board on 01.11.1975 and I think it was around ‘Diwali’ of that year that this movie must have hit the theatres. And that is why I am reminded of its’ song during ‘Diwali festival’ every year. (The songs from this movie were frequently played either on loud speakers or on radio then and that is why they must have made their way to my impressionable mind then.
I also remember the songs of ‘Ameer Ghareeb’ which were played frequently and I didn’t like them then and they were very irritating to me).

Well, all the three movies that I mentioned above viz. ‘Bidaai’, ‘Roti’, and ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’ were declared as hit or super hit movies of that time. However, in comparison to the above movies I was under impression that the today’s movie ‘Warrant-1975’, was not a successful one, but now sources mentioned that it was among the top ten grossers of that year.

‘Warrant-1975’ was directed by Pramod Chakravarty for N.P. International, Bombay.

It was produced by N.P. Singh.

Here is again one more movie which is dedicated to the ‘police forces’ in the country;

“Dedicated to those Officers and men of our police force who suffered and sacrificed their lives so that their countrymen can live in peace”

‘Warrant-1975’ had Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Pran, Dara Singh, Ajit, Satish Kaul, Sulochana, Madan Puri, Jankidas, V.Gopal, Bunty, Aparna Choudhary, Kuljeet, Seema Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, Narbada Shankar, Praveen Paul, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti, Viju Khote, Lambha, Raja Saigal, Rajan Kumar, Manjit, Paul Sharma, Habib, Ujagar, Rajnish, Dhanna, Pehlwan, Birbal, Kirti Kumar, Devdas, Hercules, and many others.

Lalita Pawar, Joginder and Sujit Kumar make friendly appearance in this movie.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues were written by Vrajendra Gaur.
Editing of this movie was done by Narinder Arora.

The movie is an interesting movie to watch except few action scenes where Dev Anand is jumping over the buildings and like that are not easy to digest’😊. They could have been avoided and fight scene suitable to Dev Anand’s image would have been much better.
All the stars perform well to their character in the movie and the movie keeps one engaged till the end.
And most importantly music of this movie is very nice and all songs are very good.

The movie had four songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by R.D. Burman.
Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie where Kishore Kumar had two solos and one duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and other than the duet Lata Mangeshkar had sung one solo song in this movie.
(*HFGK also mentions the name of Asha Bhonsle in the singer’s list of this movie however movie title clearly mentions the name of Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar only).

Only one song from this movie featured in the ‘annual ‘Binaca geetmala’ of 1975’ ranking at number twenty-ninth, and it improved by featuring two songs from this movie in the annual ‘Binaca geetmala of 1976 i.e. Ruk jaana o jaana at number twenty-three and ‘main tumse mohabbat karti hoon’ at number thirty-one.

And so, very rightly these two songs have already been posted on the blog and in accordance of their popularity too. 🙂

Song Posted on
Ruk jaana o jaana hamse do baatein karke chali jaana 18.09.2008
Main tumse mohabbat karti hoon 19.11.2014

Today’s song happens when Mehra (Pran) – Chief of Police and his team (read Jagdish Raj and others) are looking for Jailor Arun (Dev Anand) who is on the run with a murder accused. Police is having the information that Arun would be attending the marriage function of Pyara Singh (Dara Singh)’s sister Guddo (Seema Kapoor).

Pran plays the father of Dev Anand and is a Chief of the Police. Dev Anand being a Jailor also and son of the Police Chief is wanted by Police and is on the run. Jailor Arun had helped and eloped with the accused Dinesh and is sheltering him. The reason being that during a revolt by the prisoners and an attempt of ‘jail-break’ Dinesh saves the life of the Jailor.
Jailor (Dev Anand) wants to know that why a ‘murderer’ saved his life and when he could have run to avoid his hanging which was going to take place soon.
So our Jailor wants to know the ‘truth’ and also look for the ‘asli gunahgaar or qaatil’ of a scientist (Madan Puri), after the accused Dinesh finally breaks the ‘secret’ of his being wrongly ‘trapped’ in the ‘murder-case’ and real ‘qaatil’ and ‘culprits’ are some other people and not him.

The plot is interesting and the presentation is having all the ingredients of the ‘seventies’ movies and one can enjoy the movie and the ‘thrill’ of watching it.

Let us now enjoy the song where Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman perform in disguise (for the police and not for us – the viewers) hiding their real identity in the movie.

Zeenat Aman plays Rita Verma who is the daughter of the deceased scientist Madan Puri and is looking for the killer of her father to take revenge of her father’s death. (But here there is a ‘twist’, and I am leaving that for those interested and want to watch this movie) 😊

As mentioned above the song is composed by R.D. Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.
Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar have given their voices for Dev Anand and Zeenat Aman respectively in this energetic bnagra style dance song.

I hope you will like this song and enjoy it …:)

Today also happens to the birthday of our own Khyati Ben. We wish her a very happy birthday.

Blog Day : 4155 Post No. : 15322

Hullo Atuldom

We are into the last month of 2019. There are a lot of messages being forwarded on WhatsApp and other social media platforms urging the reader to enjoy the last TEEN year in a long time to come, after this the new millennium will be on the threshold of adulthood (India has 21 as the official age at which a person is considered an adult).

Here is the first birthday post for the month. Let us all wish the “raunaq e blog”- titled bestowed on the recipient two years ago on this date- a very Happy Birthday. May she be forever healthy happy cheerful and full of life, as she has been described by Atulji and Sudhirji in their posts in the blog.

I have not gone looking for hitherto unposted Talat Mehmood songs as Atulji had suggested two years back but went with my regular practice of mixing this birthday girl with the flamboyant, evergreen, forever PACHCHEES (25) actor of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s who was forever hyperactive. And going by what the two Sutradhars of our blog have written, our birthday gal sounds to be ‘hyperactive’ and may she be forever PACHCHEES or shall I say “Aththara” (18). Wish you a very happy birthday Ben Katie a.k.a Khyatiben. Lets us have a great time today on your birthday. Let the music begin and play through the day from this end of the globe to your end.

tum jiyo hazaaron saal saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar,
sau saal jiyo tum jaan meri , or the evergreen baar baar din ye aaye.
Let all these and other birthday songs available here and elsewhere be played on loop (as kids we used to say rewind and replay the cassette). Let our dear birthday gal choose a song she likes; we shall play that too on LOOP.

Today we also remember Raju “Guide” on his 8th Remembrance Day with a song that showcases him with his typical mannerisms which I feel he adopted after around 30-35 years in the industry. That typical nod, crooked smile that made ladies go weak at the knees (or was that smile always a killer) etc. This is from the 1982 release “Swami Dada” which was produced and directed by Dev Anand and had a large cast. The ladies in the movie were Rati Agnihotri, Padmini Kolhapure (she was still a teenager), Urmila Bhatt, Sushma Seth, Naaz, Christine O’Neil, Beena, Baby Khushboo etc. The male cast was headed by Dev Anand, Mithun Chakravarty, Naseeruddin Shah, Shakti Kapoor, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tom Alter, Bharat Kapoor, Sudhir etc, this was Jackie Shroff’s first credited screen appearance playing Shakti Kapoor’s confidant.

The first song from this movie was posted exactly seven years back for the same occasion; at that time, I had found this on IMDB.com –

Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

On revisiting imdb I found a little more to go with the above –
Dev Anand is one of the tapori gang, handled by Kulbhushan Kharbanda. He escapes to Western country, only to come back and see that the members of the gang living in same conditions. He, himself have become a spiritual person. Named Swami. In order to break the gang, Dev poses himself as Ringo Dada. Hence the name Swami Dada
Hari Mohan is a saintly person who organizes Hindu prayers and discourses in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. He is called “Swami Dada” by everyone. He has many followers, and devotees who throng in large numbers to hear his sermons. What they do not know that Hari Mohan is a professional thief, and is now conspiring with a young woman, and a group of orphaned children to steal the temple jewellery.

“Swami Dada” had music by RD Burman and Anjaan was the lyricist. The playback for today’s song is by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar.
Thinking of the style icon, winner of Dadasaheb Phalke award (2002), Padma Bhushan (2001), and three-time filmfare award recipient one of which was the life-time achievement in 1993, and a darling of the masses for nearly sixty years who is still an inspiration and will remain one for generations to come thanks to the legacy he has left behind. I am not trying to describe the kind of movies he was associated with or anything about his biography here. Let us just get on to the song.


Song-Galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani (Swaami Dada)(1982) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

paanch ke note mein ab kya dam hai

ho o o dus ka note cigarette ko bhi kam hai
ho o ab hare note ka mol hai kya
socho kuchh oonchi baat zara
ab baat karo toh laakhon ki
dekhenge khwaab karodon ke

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho o ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

aaj sanwar ke dekha jo darpan
apni nazar se sharma gayi ee
kiske hunar ka chal gaya jaadoo
kahaan thi kahaan se kahaan aa gayi
ho mera haar

iss heere ke haar mein kya hai
apna mol toh aanko
tum kya ho kya ban sakte ho
apne dil mein jhaanko
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
jhoothhe nakli sapne dekhe
asli baat na jaani ho o o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani

mil ke mere saath chalo toh
woh duniya dikhlaoon
jeete ji woh jannat kaise
milti hai batlaoon

tumko masheeha maan liya hai
ab jaana hai aur kahaan aan
tumse mile toh dekhe ujaale
varna dhuaan thhe donon jahaan
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
badlen hum aur yoon badlen
ho duniya ko hairaani ho o

galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani
ho badla hai ab daur badal jaayegi kahaani
ho ik banjaaran banegi kal mehlon ki raani
ho o o galiyon galiyon khaak bahut din humne chhaani

Blog Day :

4137 Post No. : 15297 Movie Count :

4214

The date today is 15 november 2019. It was on this day thirty years ago (on 15 november 1989) that Sachin Tendulkar made his test debut. By a remarkable coincidence, it was on this day fifty years ago (viz on 15 november 1969) that Gundappa Vishwanath made his test debut as well.

A test match is being played today (15 november 2019) by India at Indore. It was while watching this match that I became aware that it was exactly thirty and fifty years ago that two Indian batting legends made their test debuts.

These batting legends enhanced the stature of Indian batting. Seeing their batting, lots of batting talents came up in India. If today Indian batting is regarded as the strongest among all test playing nations then Gundappa Vishwanath and Sachin Tendulkar have played inspirational and important roles in that. It was appropriate that Indian batsmen “celebrated” the occasion by dishing out a memorable batting performance today- they hammered 406 runs in one day of test cricket. Last one hour saw more than one hundred runs being scored as T20 rate.

This occasion needs to be celebrated in the blog too, with a suitable song. While searching for a suitable song, I became aware that “Awwal Number”(1990) was a movie that centered around cricket.

“Awwal Number”(1990) was produced and directed by Dev Anand. This movie had Dev Anand, Aamir Khan, Aditya Pancholi, Neeta Puri, Ekta, Sudhir Pandey, Vikram Gokhale, Parikshat Sahni, Ram Mohan, Anjan Srivastava, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, Sameer Khakkar, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Raj Kishore, Manmouji, Mac Mohan, Asha Sharma, Subbiraj, Ajit Vachchani, Aftab Shivdasani etc in it.

I was aware about the movie, but I was not aware that this movie was about cricket. It was not only about cricket, it even had a song about cricket. Just what the doctor ordered, as Ravi Shashstri, in his commentating avatar would have said.

Here is this song. It is sung by Udit Narayan, Amit Kumar and Bappi Lahiri. Amit Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

With this song, “Awwal Number”(1990) makes its debut in the blog.

Thanks to Prakashchandra, I have been able to watch the video of this song. The picturisation shows that this song is picturised on Dev Anand (lip syncing in Bappi Lahiri’s voice), Aditya Pancholi (Amit Kumar’s voice) and Aamir Khan (Udit Narayan’s voice).

Blog Day : 4030 Post No. : 15149

Hullo to all in Atuldom

With today’s post/ song the concerned movie achieves “YYIIPPEEEEhood”- a word on the lines of adulthood; not found in any standard dictionary and a creation of this blog just like “atuldom” and “atulites”.

The movie debuted on the blog on 18th January, 2010 and has had a rather slow run on the blog. The movie itself was huge hit in its time with all its songs still on the minds and lips of HFM lovers. (I was a child and I am not sure if I have seen it in a movie hall but have seen it umpteen times on TV.) I am not going into the minute details about the movie and say that it was directed by Dev Anand for his home production. I will also not say that the songs were written by Anand Bakshi and R D Burman was the music director. But the minute the song is posted the reaction is going to be “yeh abhi baaki hai?!!!” This was the reaction to the previous post from this movie too. In fact, Guruji had wondered how that song had escaped from being posted all these years considering it was THE MOST POPULAR song from the movie. My answer to that query would be “so that we could have that wonderful post from you, Sirji.” And the bigger reaction will be “this movie is not yet YYIIPPEEEED!!!” That is why I say wonders don’t cease in this blog of ours.
We are revisiting “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” today. This movie had seven songs and six songs -one of them being a multi-version song- are already posted.

The details of the songs from the movie that have been covered earlier :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Kaanchi re kaanchi re 2268 18-Jan-10
2 Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai Multiple version song 2838 24-Aug-10
3 Dekho o deewaanon tum ye kaam na karo 5098 4-Dec-11
4 I love you kya khushi kya hai gham 9241 4-Jan-14
5 Dum maaro dum mit jaaye gham 14829 7-Jan-19

The reason to revisit the movie today, is to wish the romantic leading lady -Mumtaz- on her 72nd birthday. She has had a journey in Bollywood that started as child star, extra, heroines’ friend etc in A- grade movies as a teenager and heroine of stunt films with Dara Singh etc. Her first adult role was that of the hero Rajendra Kumar’s sister in “Gehra Daag”. She had to wait a long time before bursting on the top heroine slot. By the time she reached the heroine slot she had played a dancer- vamp etc in “Mere Sanam”, “Khandaan”, “Kaajal’’ etc. Possibly the first time her comic side made itself felt was as ‘Meena’ in Mehmood’s “Pyar Kiye Jaa”. Her best times started with “Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti” where she was heroine to Jeetendra after which she paired him in movies like “Jigri Dost” “Khilona” “Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari” and some more with a guest appearance in “Humjoli”. First time she paired with Rajesh Khanna was in “Do Raaste” followed by “Bandhan” “Roti” “Aap Ki Kasam” etc. She paired opposite the Khan brothers – Feroz and Sanjay- in “Aadmi aur insaan” “Apradh” “Mela” “Dhadakan” “Upasana” etc. So, what I want to highlight here is that many male actors who were lead stars in the movies during the 60s, when Mumtaz played a nimble-footed dancer or second lead-heroine sought her in the 70s to be their main romantic lead; she played heroine to Rajendra Kumar in “Tangewala”. In her career that lasted till 1977 – “Aaina” with Rajesh Khanna was her last as a heroine when she took retirement from movies in favour of family life- she had acted with actors ranging from Dara Singh, Sunil Dutt, Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz and Sanjay Khan. She even did a movie with Amitabh Bachchan as her hero.

Let us wish our “Kaanchi” a long and healthy life. Wish you a very happy birthday Mumu a.k.a Mumtaz.
