#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 115 # Debutant movie – International Crook-1974
——————————————————

In our mission of bringing remaining Shankar-Jaikishan movies on the blog, today we are introducing the movie ‘International Crook-1974’.

Today 8th December is also the eighty-fifth birthday of actor-producer Dharmendra (born on 8th December’1935) who acted in this movie. He is lip syncing and performing on this song from the above movie, and we will enjoy this song while we wish him a ‘very very Happy Birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead’.

‘International Crook’ (alias ‘Kaalaa Baazaar’) was directed by Pachhi for his home productions ‘Pachhi, Bombay’. Pachhi was also the producer and writer of this movie.

The movie had Dharmendra, Saira Banu, Feroz Khan and Om Prakash with Hiralal, Rajan Haksar, Sushila, Rathod, Foreign artists Azar, Lily, Ferooze, Shaheen and supported by Sunder, Manorama, Raj Mehra, Jayshree T., Habib, Sulochana Chatterjee and Jagdeep.

Screenplay of this movie was written by R.S. Chaudhury, editing of this movie was done by Shyam Rajput. Dialogues for this movie were written by Aziz Kashmiri who also wrote the lyrics for all the songs of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.07.1974 with ‘restricted viewing (A) certificate’.

Music for ‘International Crook-1974’ was composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

This movie had six songs sung by Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar and Sharda as given below

Song
Crook crook crook, International crook …
Mere dil mein tu hi tu hai zaraa aitbaar kar le ae
Pyaar ki mujhpe nazar kyaa daali
Bachnaa chorbazaari se bhai jaagte rehna
Husn-e-Iran o meri jaan
Poochha jo pyaar kya hai, sharmaa ke maar daala

I had never gone through this movies’ songs earlier and it was the first time that I was listening to them. Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on-screen Dharmendra is performing with Saira Banu also with him in the picturization the song.

I liked the song and it certainly grows upon us if we listen to it again and again. Also, it has been shot at beautiful outdoor picturesque location (foreign locations, I guess 😊). This song has beautiful lyrics written by Aziz Kashmiri and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its other songs please.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and welcome 😊 ‘International Crook-1974’ on the blog ….

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas while in the video the first stanza seems to be edited or may be there is other link of full song may be).

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 111 # Debutant movie-Saazish-1975
——————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1975 movie ‘Saazish’.

This movie is making its debut on our blog. It is part of one of my ‘projects’ of bringing ‘movies with same title’ on the blog. We already have a movie with this title released in ‘1959’ represented on the blog. (Incidentally this movie was also launched on the blog with a lyrics contribution sent by me then 😊) (isme meri koi saazish nahin thhi 😊)

There are were two more movies with the same title ‘Saazish’ made in 1988 & 1998, not yet represented in the blog.

‘Saazish-1975’ was directed by Kalidas for ‘Maya Movietone, Bombay’. Kalidas was also the producer of this movie. It had Saira Banu, Dharmendra, Dev Kumar, Rajendra Nath, Madan Puri, Jagdish Raj, Murad, Gayjee, David, Helen etc. Iftekhar and Paintal make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Ranjan Bose. And screenplay and dialogues were written by Ramesh Pant. Editing of this movie was done by Waman Bhonsle and Guru Dutt Shirali.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 03.02.1975.

‘Saazish-1975’ has five songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri and composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Here are the details of the songs of this movie in order of their appearance (which should be according to the appearing of these songs in the movie) HFGK Vol-V 1971-1980.

Song Singer/s
Na taaj chaahiye na takht chaahiye, tera pyaar chaahiye har waqt chaahiye Asha Bhonsle
Wo bade khushnaseeb hote hain aap jiske kareeb hote hain Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur
Haay phir zaraa zaraa koi teer sa chubha, dil to huaa fidaa Sharda
Tujhe hamne chaaha apna samajh kar Mahendra Kapoor, Saira Banu
How sweet dada ji Asha Bhonsle, Ranu Mukherjee

As I mentioned above, this movie was in my ‘wish-list’ for the ‘project’ of introducing ‘movies with same titles’ on the blog. However, somehow, I had forgotten about this movie due to my attention to other posts. Our dear Prakash ji had also recently sent two songs from this movie for different occasions. But I am leaving them for future posts, because I was looking for a Suman Kalyanpur song composed by Shankar-Jaikishan (for obvious reasons -😊- regulars on the blog and those interested in statistics can guess it easily 😊).

So, today I am presenting a song from this movie sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Suman Kalyanpur.

This song is picturized on Dharmendra and Saira Banu (at foreign locations I guess) where Dharmendra is lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice and Saira Banu is lip syncing in the voice of Suman Kalyanpur (obviously 😊).

I have not watched this movie and would like to request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie, its details and its song please.

With the today’s song ‘Saazish-1975’ makes its debut on the blog … (😊 ye zaroor meri saazish ka hissaa hai 😊)

let us now enjoy today’s song from “Saazish”(1975)…

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 104# Qeemat-1973 (Happy Birthday – Rekha) #
—————————————- ————————————————–

On the blog, other than sharing songs and posts for special occasions we also simultaneously work on ‘different projects’ from time to time. One of the projects that I have taken up is to introduce ‘movies having same titles’ on the blog.
We also combine launching of new ‘movie’ with special occasions like anniversaries of artists, actors, actresses etc.

Today I am presenting a song from the 1973 movie ‘Qeemat’. We already have a movie titled ‘Qeemat-1946’ on the blog and all its songs have also been covered on the blog.

Movies with the title ‘Qeemat’ (or ‘Keemat’) were also made in the year 1956 and later on recently in 1998.
However, I guess that the songs of the ‘Qeemat-1956’ are difficult to find and may be not available as of now.

Coming back to today’s movie and its song, the song is from ‘Qeemat-1973’ and it is picturised on lead pair of Dharmendra and Rekha of this movie.

Today 10th October is sixty-sixth birth anniversary (born on 10th October’1954) of Bhanurekha Ganeshan or Rekha as we fondly know her. So, today we wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Today’s song is from a movie of ‘1973’ i.e. a movie released almost forty-seven years back. Let us have a look on how this year was for Rekha and the movies she appeared on screen in this year;

SNo Movie Title Date Passed by Censor Board Director Co-Star
01 Anokhi Adaa 03.04.1973 Kundan Kumar Jeetendra
02 Barkhaa Bahaar 15.10.1973 Amar Kumar Navin Nischol
03 Dharmaa 23.11.1973 Chaand Navin Nischol
04 Double Cross 25.10.1973 Gogi Anand Vijay Anand
05 Kahaani Qismat Ki 19.12.1973 Arjun Hingorani Dharmendra
06 Kashamkash 21.11.1973 Feroz Chinoy Feroz Khan
07 Khoon Khoon* 02.06.1973 Mohammad Hussain
08 Namak Haraam 19.11.1973 Hrishikesh Mukherjee Rajesh Khanna
09 Pran Jaaye Par Vachan Na Jaaye 29.12.1973 Ali Raza Sunil Dutt
10 Qeemat 29.06.1973 Ravi Nagaich Dharmendra

*(as ‘Special appearance’)

We can see from the above details that she was paired with Dharmendra in ‘Qeemat’ and ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’. ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’ was one of the super-hit movies of that year.

I am not aware of the today’s movie ‘Qeemat’. I guess it was flop and forgotten movie.
I had watched this movie ‘Keemat-1973’ in 1985-1988 during my stay Parli-Vaijnath and I had earlier mentioned the same in my post here .

I do not remember the story of the movie now, nor do I remember how I felt about the moview back then. This movie was an action packed ‘spy thriller’ movie.

Dharmendra was known as ‘he-man’ those days. Considered the most suitable hero for ‘action packed’ movies, he was in the lead role in this movie along with Rekha, Prem Chopra and others.

1973 was a significant year in Dharmendra’s career as many of his movies released during 1973 were ‘super-hits’ and his roles in these movies were well appreciated.

The year preceding ‘1973’ and succeeding it were also successful years in his film career.
He was nominated for the ‘best actor’ ‘Filmfare award’ for ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat-1973’, however he did not win it.

Here let us have a look at the movies starring Dharmendra released in the year 1973 (in alphabetical order):

SNo Movie Title Date Passed by Censor Board Director Co-Star
01 Blackmail 28.11.1973 Vijay Anand Rakhi
02 Jheel Ke Us Paar 28.08.1973 Bhappi Soni Mumtaz
03 Jugnu 28.07.1973 Pramod Chakravarty Hema Malini
04 Jwaar Bhaataa 16.10.1973 A. Subbarao Saira Banu
05 Kahaani Qismat Ki 19.12.1973 Arjun Hingorani Rekha
06 Loafer 12.03.1973 A. Bhim Singh Mumtaz
07 Phaagun* 08.06.1973 Rajinder Singh Bedi Waheeda Rehman
08 Qeemat 29.06.1973 Ravi Nagaich Rekha
09 Yaadon Ki Baarat 05.10.1973 Nasir Hussain


*(as ‘Special appearance’)

‘Qeemat-1973’ or ‘Keemat-1973’was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti Internationals, Madras’. Ravi Nagaich had also done the photography of this movie. It was produced by P. Mallikharjuna Rao.

It had Dharmendra, Rekha, Prem Chopra, Rajendra Nath, Aagha, Satyen Kappu, Maruti, Murad, Puranik, J.N. Anand, Prem Kumar, Kirti Kumar, Subhash, Suhail, Arjun Kumar, Shabnam, Indira Bansal, Halam, Kalam, Munni, Rani, with Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Ranjeet.

K.N. Singh and Jayadev make a friendly appearance in this movie.

Dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwamitra Adil while the story idea was by Ramjee. V.D. Puranik was the dialogue director for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by N.S. Prakasam.

This movie had total six songs composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. The lyrics for all the six songs were written by Anand Bakshi.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. (The titles of this movie mentioned the name of Ajit Singh in the list of singers, however HFGK Vol V doesn’t mentioned his voice in the songs of this movie in the list on the movie page of this movie).

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. I guess this song would have been the only somewhat ‘known song’ from this movie. Because I remember to have listened to it in my childhood years on the radios and so when I watched the movie in 1987-88, I remember to have heard it earlier.
However, this and other songs of this movie seem to be all forgotten because in the recent years also I have recollections of listening to them on radio.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

‘Qeemat-1973’ was passed by Censor Board on 29.06.1973 under ‘restricted viewing’ (A) certificate.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra and Rekha where Dharmendra in his ‘own’ style is requesting Rekha to forgive him 😊

Let us now listen to this song…!!!

With this song ‘Qeemat-1973’ makes its debut on the blog. 🙂

Hullo Atuldom

“Rajput” was released on 16/04/1982. That was 38 years and six months ago. It was produced by Mushir -Riaz and directed by Vijay Anand. It was the story of a minor kingdom in Rajputana and placed during the time of accession to the Indian Union.

The king of that state (played by Murad) kills himself as he is unable to handle the taking of his kingdom by a decree of the Indian Government. His son Jaipal (Ranjeet) refuses to hand over the kingdom to the government and is almost a tyrant king and has a few dacoits under his payroll. In this background Police Superintendent Dhirendra Singh (Rajesh Khanna) assumes duties in that area and at the same time his parents arrange for his marriage with Janki (Hema Malini). He falls in love with her on sight unaware that she is in love with Manu (Dharmendra). On the day of the wedding with Dhirendra, Janaki is abducted by Jaipal’s nephew (Tej Sapru) as the doli is not its way to the sasural. But Manu kills Tej Sapru, rescues Janki and goes to jail to serve term for the murder. Meantime Janki settles into wedded life. Jaipal’s atrocities are directed towards Manu’s family and he has his father killed, his brother Bhanu (Vinod Khanna) turns a baaghi (an option which all oppressed take in most films of that time) as Jaipal has set his evil eye on Bhanu’s sweetheart Kamli (Ranjeeta). So now Bhanu has become Bhawani and Dhirendra Singh is entrusted the task of hunting down all dacoits of the area. He asks Manu (who has been released from prison for good conduct) to help in this mission. He goes out looking for Bhawani Daaku unaware that he is his own brother. During the course of the movie Dhirendra finds out that the child whom Janki has given birth to, is Manu’s. He finds that Jaipal is the biggest dacoit of the region who blackmails the SP (Rajesh Khanna) to handover the case file which he has prepared in exchange of his son whom he has kidnapped. The movie moves towards the climax when all the heroes join forces to bring Jaipal (Ranjeet) and his gang of bandits to the law and avenge all personal scores. In between all this Jaipal’s daughter (Tina Munim) switches over to Bhanu’s side when he shows her her father’s reality.

Very straight forward story, right? This was a movie that took time in reaching the marquee but was reasonably successful. I see this movie whenever it come on television.

“Rajput” had 6 songs including one two part song. Of this five are posted as under

Song Date of posting
Mere sang sang aaya teri yaadon ka mela Multiple version song 2 September 2008
Bhaagi re bhaagi bhaagi brijbaala 20 March 2011
Kahaaniyaan sunaati hai pawan aati jaati 22 February 2012
Doli ho doli 10 April 2019

Today’s song is the final song. In the movie too it happens just before the climax. It is after Jaya (Tina) learns the truth about her father and the brothers have reunited after Manu (Dharam) discovers that Bhawani is Bhanu (Vinod Khanna). Just before the song Ranjeeta, who is by then the unwed mother of Ranjeet’s child, has joined Bhawani and his team. The song speaks about love for motherland and fighting to overthrow the oppressor.

I would like to state my personal opinion here:- in this post of his Atulji has mentioned that Dharam, Rajesh Khanna and Hema were all towards the end of their careers as lead actors. I beg to differ- Rajesh Khanna’s Souten, Avatar, Amrit etc came after this. As also Hema’s Satte Pe Satta etc were post this. I can agree to your statement about Dharam because in the movies of Dharam, which came after this, we saw him play father-like characters to Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Sunny, Sanjay Dutt etc. But those are my thoughts and I am open to people’s disagreement.

There were comments posted on another song of this movie which said that the mustache didn’t suit the heroes, but they are all entitled to experiment on their looks no? We have heroes, these days, who have lot of facial hair and some even sport extra-long hair.

The purpose of re-visiting this movie is to remember the handsome Vinod Khanna on his 74th birthday today. He was born in Peshawar in 1946, and was raised in Bombay (Mumbai). His first love was cricket, having played the game as a college student. But he soon realized that he couldn’t be a Vishwanath and so pursued his second passion-acting. His career began with “Man Ka Meet” in 1968 as a villain. His next few movies saw him as a supporting actor and/or an antagonist in Rajesh Khanna films of the 70s- “Aan Milo Sajna” for example. He was not averse to playing the second lead too. He appeared in 54 solo hero films and 47 multi-starrers and he was successful in half of each. He had a brief hiatus in the ’80s when he gave up everything to be Acharya Rajneesh’s disciple. He made a comeback in 1984 with “Insaaf”. He was one actor whose sense of rhythm helped him in the song and dance routines which are mandatory in Indian movies. In the last few years of his career we saw him as dad to Salman Khan in “Dabangg” “Wanted” etc. The last movie of VK that I ejoyed was “Ek Rani Aisi Bhi Thi” which saw him play Maharaja Jiwaji Rao Scindia with Hema Malini as his Rani.

Thinking of Vinod Khanna today on his birth anniversary.

Editor’s note:- Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra quite some time back.

Remembrance day of Jaikishan :
———————————–
Today i.e. 12th September, 2020 is 49th death anniversary of Jaikishan, a half of Shankar-Jaikishan.

I have just now read the detailed Wikipedia Page of Shankar-Jaikishan, so will reproduce some para’s which are worthy of mention in terms of Jaikishan’s death anniversary.

“Shankar Jaikishan enjoyed an unrivalled position in the Hindi film industry. During their heyday and even toward the later part of their career, they were the highest paid music directors in the industry. Barring stray exceptions, they were paid more than the leading actors and the promotional material of their films would give them more prominence than anyone else.”

“What can I say… my musical partner in life has gone, what is left of me to say anything more, I had never thought that at such an early age he would leave us all and go; Anyway his good qualities of maintaining goodwill, giving love and receiving love were innate in him and I too don’t have them in me. He used to regularly remind me of my innate quality of being in a boisterous mood all the time and always abrasive with some one or the other and so on and so forthwith…….”
(Shankar on Jaikishan’s death in an interview with AmeenSayani.)

The page also has this to say about Shankar Jaikishan, vis-à-vis different singers :

“Shankar Jaikishan combo worked above all of with Mohd Rafi and secondly Mukesh, and produced numbers of hits and unmatchable gems. Mohd Rafi was their favourite singer despite having good reputation with other playback singers of its time.”

I read somewhere else, that the mukhda of the song “Ye mera prempatra padh kar” from ‘Sangam’ was actually taken from the letter written by Jaikishan to his than fiancée “Priya”. So this could be the instance where Jaikishan unwittingly revealed that he is the composer of the block-buster song. This caused a rift between the two as Jaikishan broke the unwritten agreement between them, of not revealing which of them is the creator of any particular song. Here, Rafi Sahab is said to have intervened and solved the issue between Shankar and Jaikishan, and also later on between Lata Mangeshkar and Shankar in the mid 70’s.

But there is no doubt of the truth here when it is said that “Shankar-Jaikishan, along with other artists, composed “everlasting” and “immortal melodies” in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s.[2] Their best work was noted for being “raga-based and having both lilt and sonority”.

All hindi film music fans agree that they changed the face of hindi film music with “Barsaat” and the success of the film and its music played a big role in this change.

The music I think was versatile and inspiring to new music directors. Theirs was a first of its kind duo, as far as I know who combined their talents and acumen with two lyrcists and made a fearsome foursome. They can also be called fabulous and formidable. They had to be, to be on top of the game for two decades. Shankar-Jaikishan can also be credited for starting the trend of version songs, one male and one female version. Contemporaries and seniors like Naushad and S.D.Burman rarely did it. Naushad in “Mere Mehboob” and S. D. Burman in “Sharmilee” and “Tere Ghar Ke saamne”. But in the later instance, it was both male solos.

I am actually trying to wrap up the long running series on Mohammad Rafi songs, so trying not to look for a Rafi Sahab song for posting on this occasion. But as luck would have it, I found this popular song from ‘Pyaar hi Pyaar’(1969). Moreover this song has a stamp of Shankar-Jaikishan signature style in the orchestration of the music. This is an Asha-Rafi duet, with the fast pace and beat. This is the manifestation of Asha Bhonsle making inroads in the Shankar Jaikishan cap, which started with “Teesri Kasam”. Shankar-Jaikishan were known for Lata only music scores through 50’s and not just for R.K. films. I think the exceptions to this were very rare and few, where Asha, Geeta Dutt or Shamshad Begum got to sing Shankar Jaikishan compositions. Suman Kalyanpur was one such alternative which Shankar Jaikishan tried, in mid- 60’s for duets with Rafi sahab.

I have also tried to find if Shankar Jaikishan ever re-used their own tune to compose songs, but could not find any such songs. Their music was a huge commercial success, so no one else could try and copy their songs.

The song I am presenting in a party song, where Vijayanthi Mala is trying to make Dharmendra jealous, flaunting a dance partner. There are other popular Rafi solos in the film, but this would be the most popular, with the title song of the film ’dekha hai teri aankhon mein pyar hi pyar beshumaar’.

Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma, one halfof the music director Laxmikant-Pyarelal was born on 03/09/1940. So that makes this 80th Birthday of the one of the most proficient, successful and talented musicians of the golden era of hindi film music. It is a well-known fact that both Laxmikant and Pyarelaljistarted their career as players of music instruments in the song recordings. If I am not mistaken, Pyarelalji, was a violinist.

‘Most proficient’ in the film industry’s history is the correct tag for Laxmikant-Pyarelal as they are the composers with the highest no. of songs composed which stands at 2901, in the blog’s stats page.

Laxmikant Pyarelal started as music directors in 1963, they hit the jackpot with Dost (1964). What followed is history, with awards, accolades and they never looked back. They are on record as loyalists of Rafi Sahab till his lifetime, who also sang maximum no of songs for them.

The achievements and success are too many, for me to start listing them. But their association with Anand Bakshi is the longest one, and must be the biggest such combo. I would guess the total songs composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal may have around 2000 written by Anand Bakshi.

On this birthday occasion , I am presenting the song from the film Krodhi (1981), by this very same team/combo of Lakshmikant-Pyarelal with AnandBakshi. The singers are Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar. The was a multi-starrer film by Subhash Ghai. The starcast was Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Maushmi Chatterjee, Zeenat Aman, Shashi Kapoor etc and of course the love birds in the song, Sachin and Ranjeeta. The four songs of the film, which I remember are all nice one’s. But the movie is making a debut here on the blog with this song.

I have seen the movie, so can give a little outline of the story. Dharmendra is a gangster or smuggler, Zeenat Aman works for him and has a lot of regard and respect for him, as he has helped her a lot with the responsibilities. Zeenat Aman meets Shashi Kapoor (Police Inpector ?) at her sister’s wedding. Zeenat Aman and Shashi Kapoor get married, but Shashi Kapoor is not aware of the connection between Zeenat Aman and Dharmendra. The police is looking to arrest Dharmendra but he escapes and takes shelter in a village, where people mistake him for a godman or sadhu. Dharmendra adopts the disguise to escape the police. Sachin and Ranjita are the two characters who don’t make much difference to the story.

In the song, which Sachin and Ranjita are singing in the garden ‘Chameli baagh”, Dharmendra is looking on, and I think later on he helps them in some way or they are both murdered, by the villains. Dharmendra is also reminded of his late wife Maushmi Chatterjee while watching the song. Lata Mangeshkar is play backing for both Ranjita and Maushmi in the song.

The sort of word play which was a signature of Laxmikant Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi songs, is visible in this song.

Hullo Atuldom

This is an attempt to remember two legends of Bollywood with one post.

On reviewing the “anniversaries page” of the blog I found an opportunity to introduce the qawwali song from a 1982 released (exact date being 27/05/1982 meaning the movie is 38 years old), Raj Kumar Kohli produced and directed, multi starrer “Badle Ki Aag” (Flames of Revenge).

The recent stay-at-home gave me the time to sit through this movie. It is a very typical, simple, regular story with a slight twist.

There is a family of father (Kadar Khan), mother (Nirupa Roy), two sons and a daughter. The father in his greed for wealth wipes out his partner’s family but the children of this family escape the mass-murder. Nirupa Roy gets separated from her sons in the course of walking out on her cruel greedy husband. She has her daughter with her. The sons grow up to be dacoits Shera (Dharmendra) and Lakhan (Sunil Dutt) and daughter (Sarika) an aspiring lawyer whose education is funded by Lakhan who has kept in touch with the mother and sister. Lakhan is a do-gooder daku where as Shera is ruthless.

Meanwhile the daughter (Reena Roy) of the affected family has been brought up in a kotha and nurses a desire to revenge her families misfortune. Her brother (Rajeev Anand who was seen in about 5 movies after which he turned producer) grows up to be a cop. There is one more important character in the whole setup- Inspector Amar Verma (Jeetendra) who is the son of Mohanlal Verma (Madan Puri) who is constantly tormented by Shera and Lakhan. Now here is the promised twist- at different times Geeta (Reena Roy) the dancer has had interaction with the three heroes and all of them have developed feelings for her. But she loves the Inspector who has seen her at different times with the other two and misunderstands her. Isn’t that a different kind of love-story. Here I should mention the existence of Bijli (Smita Patil) who loves Shera. Hope the readers have got confused about the very regular story that this movie had. The movie was a success at the Box-Office what with so many stars.

Today’s songs has the three heroes disguised as Qawwals at Janakidas’s son’s wedding. We have Smita Patil dancing around. Here I must admit that this post reminded me of this Qawwali sung by Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Suresh Wadkar. It had music by Laxmikant- Pyarelal and had lyrics by Verma Malik.

Small thoughts after seeing the song on repeat for writing this post- (1) Sunil Dutt and Jeetendra are jumping around and Dharmendra stays put on his mat. (2) Looks like this is the only time when Smita Patil has shared screen time with Jeetendra.

With this song we remember Sunil Dutt and Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on their anniversaries.

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s is a “this happened to me” post. It was a “dream” more than a “dream come true”. A chance to see the Dream Girl in person on my last trip to Mumbai.

So this is what happened- we had just landed at Mumbai airport. I was very tired after a long day followed by a delayed-flight. I told my husband that today i am in no position to walk the distance to the baggage-claim and am planning to hop on to any buggy that ferries passengers and I did. There were two passengers already on that buggy and the lady who was sitting mentioned that the passenger who was in the buggy that overtook us was Hema Malini. And I was disappointed that I had missed having a glimpse of her.

When we reached the drop-off point, I saw that the Dream Girl had just got off and was being courteous with the airport staff and allowing selfies. Very hesitantly I waved out to her and she acknowledged. Then I hinted through action that I would like to come closer and also click pictures with her and she permitted. Then my husband clicked a picture and she said:- “you will not get a good pic from so far, come closer.” And we had one more click which I shared instantly with my children.

My son commented immediately “He has never seen me smile so brilliantly.” But my personal feeling was there can be no smile as Brilliant as that of the Dream Girl -Hema Malini. She still looks a dream, and carries herself so elegantly and majestically. She displayed no airs about being a star or MP i.e. Member of Parliament.

My husband mentioned to her that I was a huge fan of hers and occasionally write about her in the blog. To this she replied- “hope you don’t write anything uncomplimentary”, and I said “oh no, not at all. We write only about the songs and their related movies.” And she gave me her brilliant smile. But this is one encounter that will stay with me forever and I am yet to believe it happened to me.

Recently my husband asked me why I haven’t written about my experience and I said I was waiting for an occasion. Plus I was wondering which song of hers should go with the post, and on what occasion do I present it etc. Today seems to be a good enough occasion. The anniversary of the lyricist of the song.

It is the 18th anniversary of lyricist Anand Bakshi (21 July 1930 – 30 March 2002). He was born Bakshi Anand Prakash Vaid, in Rawalpindi, in modern day Pakistan. His family came to India in the aftermath of partition. Poetry writing was his hobby and when he joined the Indian Army he continued to write whenever time permitted.

All of this are well known facts about Anand Bakshi. We also know that simultaneously he tried marketing his songs to Mumbai film industry. He finally got discharged from the army in 1956 and tried to become a writer or singer but found his foothold as a lyrics writer and “Bhala Aadmi” in 1958 was his first released movie where he wrote four songs.

“Mehndi Lage Mere Haath” with music by Kalyanji Anandji was his first success. And then the songs which found a mark in the hearts and minds of cine-goers never stopped. His wish to sing in movies was fulfilled when he sand “Baaghon mein bahaar aayi” and another solo for “Mom Ki Gudiya” in 1972. he has sung few more songs but written close to 3500 and we have 1036 of them on the blog.

Coming back to today’s song. On my return from Mumbai, last weekend, I saw “Pratiggya”(1975) starring Hema Malini, Dharmendra and Ajit. I don’t remember seeing the movie at the time of its release. This was a movie produced by Dharmendra himself and had “main jat yamla pagla deewana” (the only song from the movie on the blog) which is still in the minds of the fans even after a lapse of 45 years.

Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music directors with whom Anand Bakshi collaborated in 302 movies. As I was writing this I came across the list of movies released in 1975, fifteen of which had songs written by Anand Bakshi, would like to know if it is a record of some kind.

The song with this post comes immediately after the song “jatt yamla pagla deewana” comes to a close. At the end of the song a drunk Ajit Singh (Dharmendra) falls into the river and dreams that Radha (Hema) is Sahibaan and he is Mirza.

So here is this love song where Hema looks a dream in the dream sequence and let us say Thank You to Anand Bakshi for leaving us this gem.


Song-Uthh neend se mirziya jaag jaa (Pratigya)(1975) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal
Chorus

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

uthh neend se mirziya jaag ja aa
teri sahibaan kare pukaar
tu ek akela bhaag jaa aa
tere peechhe ae ae ghudsawaar
vo aa gaye badla lene nu
haan aan aan
tere dushman mere veer
bedardi teer kamaan se ae ae
teri chhaati denge cheer
aisa lagta hai pyaar ke ae
nahin achche kuchh sanjog
humko mar ke bhi soniya aa aa aa
nahin milne denge log

sun sahibaan ?? yaqeen ke
rakh pyaar ki laaj jara
meri bakki(??) se daran farishte
te jatt se dare khuda
aane de unko saamne
hone de lahu-luhaan
chupchaap tamaasha dekh tu u u u u
tere sadke meri jaan
ye baat nahin wo jaante
mere dushman tere veer
jo maar sake mujhe soniye
ae ae ae ae
nahin bana abhi vo teer

‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) is a dubbed Hindi version of Bangla film, ‘Paari’ (1966). Produced by Pranoti Bhattacharya (nee Ghosh, wife of Abhi Bhattacharya) under the banner of New India Pictures, Calcutta, the filmias directed by Jagannath Chatterjee. The main star cast includes Dharmendra, Pranoti Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Bikash Roy, Dilip Roy, Satya Banerjee, Padma Devi, Renuka Roy etc. Dilip Kumar had a guest role of a Warden of Andaman Jail. The film is based on a story written by the famous Bengali writer, Jarasandha (real name: Charu Chandra Chakraborty). Pranoti Ghosh is not new to the Hindi films. Earlier, she had worked in Hindi films like ‘Phulwaari’ (1951), ‘Parichay’ (1954), ‘Jagriti’ (1954), ‘Love Marriage’ (1959) and ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962).

‘Paari’ (1966, Bangla film) is the only film in which Dharmendra got opportunity to work with his childhood idol, Dilip Kumar even though he had only one or two scenes with his idol. However, Dharmendra could not get a full-fledged Hindi film to work with Dilip Kumar. He felt that some ‘jinx’ came on the way and he could not fulfil his dream of working with Dilip Kumar in a Hindi film. The ‘jinxed’ examples are set out below:

Dharmendra was to work in ‘Aadmi’ (1968) with Dilip Kumar but his role ultimately went to Manoj Kumar. In 1979, his dream of working with Dilip Kumar almost became a reality when Nasir Hussain selected Dharmendra and Rishi Kapoor in the role of sons of Dilip Kumar in ‘Zabardust’. However, after a few days of shooting, the film was shelved reportedly due to creative differences between the director and Dilip Kumar about the storyline. Later, Nasir Hussain made the film afresh in 1985 with Sanjeev Kumar, Sunny Deol and Rajiv Kapoor with some changes in the story. BR Chopra selected Dharmendra to play the role of Chandragupta in ‘Chanakya’ (1980s) in which Dilip Kumar had a role of Chanakya. However, the film got shelved due to financial problems faced by the producer. When Dilip Kumar got chance to act and direct ‘Kalinga’ (UR – 1990s), Dharmendra tried his best to get a role for himself but Dilip Kumar told him that he could not be fitted in any worthwhile role in the film.
(These are taken mostly from interviews Dharmendra gave to film journalists at various times).

The chance which Dharmendra got to work with Dilip Kumar in the Bangla film ‘Paari’ (1966) was like a ‘consolation prize’ for him having done only a couple of scenes with Dilip Kumar in the film towards the end. The story of the film which was dubbed in Hindi with a new title as ‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) is as under:

The story is set in the pre-independence period in a rural setting in Bengal. The film starts with a Jail Warden asking Tara Sen (Pranoti Ghosh), a prisoner as to why she has requested to be transferred to Andaman Jail. From here onwards, the story is unfolded in a flash-back mode until her sea journey to Andaman Jail.

Tara is the only daughter of a landlord in a village. She is fond of walking in the midst of nature in the village along with her childhood friend Ghanshyam (Dharmendra) who is looked after by the landlord. Because both of them indulge in some sort of mischiefs in the village, Ghanshyam’s gaurdian sends him to the city for schooling. After few years, Ghanshyam returns to the village as he failed in matriculation examination. He is employed by the landlord. Tara and Ghanshyam like each other but due to societal constraints, they refrain from expressing their love for each other to culminate into a marriage. After all, Tara is the daughter of a wealthy landlord and Ghanshyam is a poor commoner who works for landlord.

Tara’s parents are looking for a suitable boy for her marriage. In the meanwhile, she falls prey to the lust of the village Daroga, Badal Gupta (Abhi Bhattacharya) who is a drunkard and a womaniser. Tara’s parents try their best to take care of her by arranging her marriage with a suitable boy. However, the scandal comes to the notice of the father of the groom, a landlord who humiliate Tara and her father in derogatory words. Ghanshyam gets angry that his employer and Tara are getting insulted. He starts dispersing groom’s side supporters by wielding his lathi which accidentally kills the groom’s father. Ghanshyam is arrested on murder charge. Tara’s father is also under threat of arrest as an accomplice.

With scandal looming on her head coupled with police case, Tara decides to marry Daroga, Badal Gupta provided he drops the charges against her father and Ghanshyam which he agrees. They get married. Tara tries her best to make her husband to mend ways and give up his vices but fails. One day, Tara comes to know that her husband is going to spoil the life of an innocent girl who happens to be her friend. She confronts him. In fits of anger, she stabs her husband resulting in the life-threatening injuries to him. Tara is arrested as she has admitted the crime.

While in hospital, Daroga requests his wife Tara to change her statement to police to say that he accidentally fell on a sharp instrument so that she is saved from the jail and more importantly to preserve his self-respect as he has never been defeated in his life, that too from a woman. Tara refuses to change her statement to the police. Badal dies of stab injuries. Tara is jailed for the murder of her husband.

In the meanwhile, Tara comes to know that the court has awarded Ghanshyam the imprisonment for life and he is jailed in Andaman. She remembers the sacrifice made by Ghanshyam to save her honour and wishes to be with him as he has no one to support in Andaman. She pleads with the Jail Warden to transfer her to Andaman Jail which is granted. The Warden of Andaman Jail (Dilip Kumar) is not prepared to accept her in the Andaman jail as she cannot stay with Ghanshyam as a prisoner who is on parole. The reason is that as per the Jail Manual, only the husband and wife prisoners can stay together not necessarily in prison but in the outskirts of the prison as well.

In the meantime, Warden has gone through their files and suggest to both of them to get married so that they can stay together in Andaman. Both Tara and Ghanshyam are not ready to get married to each other due to their conventional upbringing. The Warden shows his helplessness and orders her repatriation to her original prison. The next day, Tara runs away from the jail. The jail police forces fail to locate her. Ghanshyam is also on lookout for her but returns unsuccessful. The film ends with Ghanshayam returning to his room disappointed only to find Tara sitting in a corner of his room in a semi conscious state. Ghanshyam brings her to consciousness and for the first time they embrace each other.

The highlight of the film is the presence of Dilip Kumar in a special appearance in the role of the Warden of Andaman Jail. His presence suddenly galvanises the film for about the last 15 minutes. His fluency in dialogue delivery with voice control – both in Hindi (Bengali in Bangla version) and English is worth watching. The video of Dilip Kumar’s 15 minutes’ role in the film as a Warden is here for those interested in watching his performance.

‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) has three songs one of which is a Bangla pre-marriage folk song. I am presenting the first song from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is ‘Bandhu Re, Ye mann dole bole kya re koi jaane’ sung by Manna Dey. The song is set to music by Salil Chowdhury on the words of Haneef-Jackie whose names I heard for the first time. I have also listened to the equivalent song in the Bangla version of the film ‘Paari’ (1966) which is written and set to music by Salil Chowdhury. The same tune has been used for the Hindi version song which I feel, is more or less the translation of the Bangla version. Haneef-Jackie seems to be the pseudo names.

A small part of the song under discussion is also used as a background song on the day of the marriage of Tara (Pranoti Ghosh) with Badal Gupta (Abhi Bhattacharya). I like the prelude music of the song with a beautiful combination of musical instruments especially Flute, Sitar and Guitar which is partly available in the video clip but fully available on the audio clip. It is interesting to note that Manna Dey sings second stanza of the song with somewhat Bengali pronunciation.

With this song, ‘Anokha Milan’ (1972) makes its debut in the Blog.

“Jaagir”(1984) was produced and directed by Pramod Chakraborty for Pramod Films, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman, Mithun Chakraborty, Shoma Anand, Amrish Puri, Preeti Sapru, Danny Denzongpa, Ranjeet, Beena Bannerjee, Azad, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, R.S.Chopra, Bob Christo, Tarun Ghosh, Iftekhar, Kamal Kapoor, Praveen Kumar, Pran, Subroto Mahapatra, Baby Pinky, Sujeet Kumar, Mac Mohan, Master Ravi, Amol Sen, Asit Sen, Sunder Taneja, Ashalata Wabgaonkar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

One of these songs was a new year song. Today (1 january 2020) is an ideal occasion to cover this song.

So here is this new year song from “Jaagir”(1984). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a stage dance performance on Zeenat Aman, Dharmendra etc. House full audience, including Raj Kishore, Subroto Mahapatra, Amrish Puri, Shoma Anand, Ranjeet, Preeti Sapru, Praveen Kumar,Sunder Taneja(anouncer) are present on the occasion. Amrish Puri and Ranjeet receive call (on landline phone, brought to them on their chairs) that their nefarious business has been foiled and the main person was donning an orange boiler suit. And Ranjeet recalls having seen this boiler suited man onstage. So he obviously plans his next move as soon as the song finishes. 🙂 Our villains never act till the song performance is over !

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy new year 2020. 2020 has a nice sring about it, especially because we are already familiar with 2020 format of cricket :). Let us hope that this year will see quick fire action in our lives and also in the blog, similar to the action that we are used to seeing in a 2020 game of cricket.

With this song, “Jaagir”(1984) makes its debut in the blog.
