My affair with Sadhna started very tiny. The film was ‘Ek Phool Do Mali’ (1969) and the song was “Sainyaan Le Gayi Jeeya Teri Pehli Nazar”. That image of a beautiful Kashmiri village belle, with that charming and becoming smile captured my mind and my heart. She was being blackmailed by Sanjay to sing a song for him, using her recorded voice in a tape recorder, which he threatened to make public. So in a manner of speaking, the song was of the ‘Dance Under Duress’ category. 🙂 She is somewhat letting it on that her song and dance is a make believe effort. But then Hindi films are Hindi films. And a tiny pre-teen mind is quite inexperienced in these matters; and quite easily enamored by that charming smile, and the gestures of endearment, howsoever artificial they may have been.

In the same year (1969), I also got to see ‘Inteqaam’. The storyline therein is a make believe endeavor to deceive a rich man and his son, and so I was not impressed with her presence and her beauty as much. ‘Ek Phool Do Mali’ would be the compass bearing for me for some time, till I got into my next crush. 🙂

Remembering Sadhna on the anniversary of her birth today – 2nd September.

It would be much later that I would realize that I had actually seen her much earlier in ‘Parakh’ (1960), which I had watched on TV. Actually, it would be many years after that TV viewing that I correctly identified the leading lady as Sadhna. For many years at a stretch, I used to believe that Nutan was the heroine in ‘Parakh’. Many years later when this error was set right in my mind, I went back to see this film once again, to make sure that I had finally identified her correctly in that film.

Later on, the mind got to see her other earlier films on the rewind –  ‘Hum Dono’ (1961), ‘Aarzoo’ (1965), ‘Love In Simla’ (1960), ‘Ek Musafir Ek Haseena’ and ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962), ‘Rajkumar’ (1964), and the quintessential ‘Mere Mehboob’ of 1963. This is the listing of films that I got to see earlier; of course the other films like ‘Prem Patra’ (1962), ‘Man Mauji’ (1962), ‘Wo Kaun THi’ (1964), ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Mera Saaya’ (1966), ‘Dulha Dulhan’ (1964) also followed, albeit later. The ‘Ek Phool Do Mali’ effect was repeated when I got to see ‘Mere Mehboob’. That scene of the first encounter between Husna (Sadhna) and Anwar (Rajendra Kumar) is one of the most unforgettable cinema moments in my mind. All the un-uttered emotions that were spoken just through the eyes, the only part of the face that is partially visible from within the burqa (veil covering the face), emphatically conveyed much more than any words.

Born this day in 1941, Sadhna would have been 78 today. She was born in Karachi, into a Sindhi family. When the partition happened in 1947, the Shivdasani family moved to Bombay. As she has stated in her interviews, she was interested in dramatics right from childhood, and used to participate in school plays. Her uncle (father’s real brother) Hari Shivdasani, was already an established actor in Bombay. Hari had started his career appearing in films, from 1934 – his first film being ‘Dharam Ki Devi’ (1935). So when Sadhna and her family moved to Bombay, she already had a mentor and a significant link into the film industry.

She was just fourteen, when this filmland connection, got her a bit appearance as one of the chorus dancing girls in the 1955 film ‘Shri 420’. Hari Shivdasani himself had a significant role in the film, as one of the coterie of crooked businessmen. The song is the iconinc “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh. . .”. Sadhna is one of the chorus dancers, quite easily identifiable, at least in the first half of the song. Hari Shivdasani is himself present in the group of guests at this party. [Note: Another very notable presence in this song is that of Jaikishan, the music director.] There is anecdotal material which says that Raj Kapoor was somewhat offended with Sadhna, on issues relating to hair style and make up etc., and that Sadhna did not complete the shooting of this song.

During her first year at college, producer director TN Bihari approached her for a secondary role in a Sindhi film ‘Abaana’, released in 1958. Sadhna played the role of the younger sister of the heroine, role played by Sheila Ramani. Star struck as she was, the teenaged Sadhna requested Sheila for her autograph when they first met for shooting. Giving her the autograph, Sheila commented that one day will come when she (Sheila) would be taking autograph from Sadhna – a prophecy that realized itself shortly thereafter.

Things moved fast after this. Sadhna photo appeared in ‘Screen’. The photo came to the notice of Shashadhar Mukhrjee, who invited Sadhna to join the School of Acting that he had established in Filmalya, his production studio. Sadhna joined. ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ (1959) was launched, with Nasir Husain as the director. S Mukherjee gave him the option to select a new heroine opposite Shammi Kapoor, and Nasir Husain picked Asha Parekh, also one of the students at the same school. Sadhna had to wait another year for her formal break into films. S Mukherjee announced ‘Love In Simla’ (1960) as the launch vehicle for his son Joy Mukherjee. The director, RK Nayyar, was also making his directorial debut with this film. Given the option by S Mukherjee, RK Nayyar picked Sadhna as the leading lady for the film. Her film career had now formally started.

For about a decade, her career was a rising graph, and her work was very much appreciated. She appeared along with practically all the big names of that era – Dev Aanand, Raj Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Shashi Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, Manoj Kumar, Joy Mukherjee, Dharmendra, Biswajit, Sanjay, Kishore Kumar, Feroze Khan, Parikshit Sahni, and yes, Rajesh Khanna – one film they shared credits for – ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’ (1972). About 30 films, in a career span of about 15 years, is the sum total of Sadhna’s body of work.

By the end of the decade of 1960s, Sadhna developed some recurring health problems and her films started getting delayed. 1974 saw the release of ‘Geeta Mera Naam’ and ‘Chhote Sarkar’. In 1975 came ‘Vandana’ and a much delayed ‘Amaanat’. After that, there is radio silence in her career, as she chose to stay away from films. Even earlier than that, HS Rawail opted for Vijayantimala for the leading lady in ‘Sunghursh’ (1968), after first considering Sadhna, and so did Pacchi, when he replaced Sadhna with Rajshri for ‘Around The World’ (1967).

Although Sadhna was the heroine of choice for ‘Love In Simla’, the director RK Nayyar (also her future husband), was quite openly unhappy with her looks. In his opinion, Sadhna’s forehead was wide enough to “. . . land a helicopter”. It was suggested that her hair style be changed. And after some research, the choice came to Audrey Hepburn’s hair style in films like ‘Sabrina’ (1954) and ‘Funny Face’ (1957). Audrey Hepburn sported a few locks of hair that were not brushed back, but were thrown forward so as to partially cover her forehead. The hairstyle was adopted, and yes, it became very popular in India, by the name ‘Sadhna Cut’.

Sadhna passed away in 2015, on 25th December.

Today’s song is solo performance on screen by Sadhna. The film is ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ from 1970. The film is produced under the banner of Twinkle Star, Bombay, and is directed by Ramesh Sehgal. The cast of actors is listed as Sadhana, Dharmendra, Biswajeet, Kamini Kaushal, Abhi Bhattacharya, Jagdeep, Nadira, Leela Mishra, Randhir, Jagdish Raj, Meena, Madhumati, and Uday Chandrika.

There are 8 songs listed for this film, all from the pen of Anand Bakshi. The music is from the mind of SD Burman. Singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar.

The story is about two childhood friends, who fall in love with the same lady, who in turns, loves only one of them. The other person is not aware of this reality, and actually tries to get help from his friend to woo the lady. Hmm. . . reminds one of many films – especially ‘Sangam’ (1964). The story progresses on very predictable lines, with sacrifice at the end of the film, by the one who is earlier unaware of his friend’s love, and later regrets after coming to know the truth. However, it is the songs and the music of this film which are something great to write home about. Together, SD Burman and Anand Bakshi have collaborated in about a dozen films and majority of them have wonderful songs that have been hits.

This song is sort of an on stage performance by Sadhna. We can seen Dharmendra, Biswajeet, Abhi Bhattacharya and Nadira in the audience. Biswajeet, the unaware friend, thinks that this song is meant for him, and is quite happy. Dharmendra, who is aware of the triangle, and has been coaxed by Biswajeet to attend this performance, is quite visibly ill at ease during the performance.

I picked this song for the poignant and effective performance by Sadhna, for a song that is somewhat of a somber expression of serious love. The lyrics of this song are adapted from a traditional bhajan originally written by Sant Meerabai.

Lovely song, lovely rendition by a lovely Sadhna. Things can’t get much better than this for the tiny crush in my heart that still sustains.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 10
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 43
——————————————————————————————

As Gajendra ji had commented, couple of episodes ago – I am quite sure the readers are now beyond getting surprised by the songs posted in this series. Yes, some very interesting repeats, but oh well. . .

The interesting thing about today’s post is, well, two things. It is the singer’s Remembrance Day today, as well as, we also are showcasing the song as part of the 10 year challenge series.

10 years ago, this day, six songs were posted. Those were the days, when Atul ji was at his prolific best, and six new songs on the blog was quite the norm. And he followed an interesting convention. The songs he posted on one day, used to be in the incremental chronological order, as you can notice in the short table below.

Chup Hojaa Ameeron Ke Ye Sone Ki Ghadi Hai Bandi 1957 1814
O Pawan Veg Se Udne Waale Ghode Jai Chittod 1961 1815
More Ang Lag Jaa Baalmaa Mera Naam Joker 1970 1816
Gore Gore Gaalon Waale…Kahte Hain Mujhko Haseenon Ka Devtaa Haseenon Ka Devta 1971 1817
Mile Mile Do Badan Khile Khile Do Chaman Blackmail 1973 1818
Pahraa Hai Yahaan Pahraa Badnaam 1975 1819

There were two debut films that day – ‘Jai Chittod’ and ‘Haseenon Ka Devta’. And quite interestingly, both the films are at present miles away from being yippeee’d. Since that day, only one song has been added for ‘Jai Chittod’ (12 songs listed in Geet Kosh), and none for ‘Haseenon Ka Devta’ (6 songs listed in Geet Kosh). The remaining 4 films, ‘Bandi’ (1957), ‘Blackmail’ (1973), ‘Badnaam’ (1975) and ‘Mera Naam Joker’, the magnum opus by Raj Kapoor, have completed their account on the blog.

And yet, today, “Mera Naam Joker’ makes another appearance here, on account of an unlisted song. In that, it is a repeat song from RK’s own film from 1951 – ‘Awaara’. Being his own film, of course it would have been a simple thing to reuse the earlier song.

In the iconic song “Ae Bhai Zara Dekh Ke Chalo”, the poet Neeraj declares,

haan babu ye circus hai
aur ye circus hai show teen ghante ka

pehla ghanta bachpan hai
doosra jawaani hai
teesra buddhaapa hai

The entire film was presented as three chapters, with two intermissions. And quite literally, RK has presented three phases of life in these three segments – childhood, youth, and old age. And in each of these phases, there is a different lady with whom the Joker’s heart gets entangled. And every time, his emotions and timid overtures are eventually disregarded – in face of certain compulsions of life that each one of those lady characters struggle with, in their own lives. In the first phase, there is a mismatch of age. In the second, there is a mismatch of location / language / societal background. And in the third, there is a mismatch of aspirations in life versus the values of life.

The reprisal of this song occurs close to the end of the second segment. The Joker has lost his heart to a circus artist visiting from Russia. And as their visit and stay comes to a close, the lady has to leave, and go back to her own country with her group. The circus manager (role played by Dharmendra), in an earlier conversation, has already cautioned him against getting too friendly with the visitors. That caution has now become a prophesy realized. Marina (role played by Russian actress Kseniya Ryabinkina) has to leave. The Joker is at the airport, with Sher Singh (role played by Dara Singh), his partner in crime, or let’s say, his ustaad in the art of romance. The Joker has come to bid farewell to the departing Russian troupe, and his lady love, who cannot stay. There is a brief exchange between the two lovers, and the lady leaves, planting a kiss on the Joker’s lips, and waving a good bye. Sher Singh asks the Joker as to what the lady has said in her native language. The Joker replies forlornly, that her words reminded him of an old song.

And then this song from two decades earlier is played once again, as a background piece. Marina walks to the plane, and the plane departs. And the verses penned by Shailendra are re-told yet once again in the life of the Joker –

duniya mein tere teer ka
ya taqdeer ka maara hoon. . .

This verse segment is the one that I never seem to have been able to get over all my life.  “That, in this life of mine, I have been vanquished either by my own destiny, or the glance arrows coming from your eyes – I do not know which one.” Such a powerful assertion in just ten words, ensconcing within itself a myriad philosophies of life, in a moment narrating and laying bare everything that can and could have gone wrong in an overwhelmed life. The emotions these ten words evoke inside, lie crumpled, tightly wound like a giant ball of thread, with no end visible – not enough words to unravel it and express it.

This song is probably one of the most recognizable songs ever in the ocean of Hindi film music – not only here in India, but also in many parts of this world, where RK’s films are loved as part of their own cultures. The first few bars of the prelude music start to play, and practically every one can recognize which song is coming up. And so, I remember, the first time I saw ‘Mera Naam Joker’, and this scene played out on the screen, and the Joker tells about being reminded of an old favorite song, and the prelude music begins to play – it was quite a shock of recognition that overpowered the heart. Yes, RK presenting this song at this juncture, makes all the sense, rounds up everything that he has been wanting to say through this film – ‘Mera Naam Joker’ – a wayward truant clown I am in this life.

An interesting throwback on this song – it was also repeated within the original film itself. Regular folks would remember, the closing scene – Nargis and Prithviraj Kapoor are visiting RK in the prison, after he has been incarcerated post his trial. It is a brief meeting – about two minutes or so. And as Nargis is asked to take leave, there is this standard dialogue that RK utters – “. . . meri soorat hi aisi hai”. Overcome by the understated innocence and simplicity, plus the unpretentious hangdog look on his face, Nargis once again rushes back into his arms, and exactly the same stanza starts to play in the background.

A few interesting observations about these two reprisals. Take the music and rendition. The song that plays in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ is very nearly the original, but as one listens carefully, one can make out small pieces of extra orchestral music that S-J have weaved in, merging it with the overall background score of the scene. And in the original film ‘Awaara’, the rendition has a small variation at the end. The words of the last line that Mukesh has sung include a very delicate and lovable “हाय” ~ “haaye” –

haaye. . .
awaara hoon..oon..oon. . .

This addition has made this line oh so much more endearing and adorable. Listening to this last one snippet made my day – more than all the pleasure and emotions that are flowing with the original complete version of the song. So surely, this segment, or at least this last line has been re-recorded, even then back in 1951, and presented separately as the end piece.

Next, in both these reprisals, there is a close, very close proximity of the lady love. In ‘Awaara’, the kiss almost happens – just short of the waving scissors of the censor board. And in ‘Mera Naam Joker’, the kiss does happen, with Marina forcefully planting it on the lips of the Joker. Oh well, I don’t know – should we expect a kiss, whenever this part of the song is played ??  Ha, ha, I am sure you will tell me – it happens only in the reel world. 🙂 🙂

Another cute co-incidence I discovered in the last scene of ‘Awaara’. RK and Nargis are in each others arms, and a loud voice calls out in the background, probably the prison warden or constable – “ओ क़ैदी नंबर 308, चलो” (“O prisoner no. 308, come on move.”). I made a little connect in my mind – I don’t know whether that was the intention of the director and dialogue writer. The number 308 – it rang a bell. 308 –> 30-8 –> 30th August –> Shailendra’s birthday. 🙂 🙂

Back to ‘Mera Naam Joker’, I might as well document it here, for possibly no more posts of this film could be forthcoming in the future. The three ladies who appear in each of the three chapters of this film, just examine the screen names – Mary, Marina, Meena. Sound quite connected, flowing right into each other. You combine Mary and Meena – becomes Marina. Just some musings of the wandering mind. Just like the three magazines that RK, Rajendra Kumar and Padmini are seen browsing through on the flight – Time (Padmini), Fortune (Rajendra Kumar) and Life (RK). 🙂 🙂

And then, back to Mukesh, after all so much wandering of the silly mind over the terrain of anecdotes and co-incidences. Even till late afternoon today, I hadn’t the faintest idea whether I would be writing post for the remembrance day today. Mahesh ji’s post, so wholesome and so satisfying, after posting that in early morning, I was not picking up new ideas to write another post on Mukesh. Later, in the afternoon, I was just browsing through the list of songs etc., and don’t know why, but I decided to check out the 10-year-challenge thing for today. Pulled out the list of songs for 27-08-2009. The title ‘Mera Naam Joker’ jumped out at me immediately, and before I could say bambi, my mind had made a few jumps around, connected other material, and brought out this well baked idea of doing a combined 10-year-challenge and repeat-songs post. Yes, I had this repeat song on my list, and had not yet planned when to post it. The mind made that decision for me today, and quite swiftly so, without taking me along on the steps of decision making.

I am glad I checked this out, and got to make this connection and getting this post out today. In the earlier post today, Mahesh ji has mentioned a figure of ~80% songs of Mukesh being hit songs. I cannot think of any other singer, at this level of prolific output, who can be associated with this high a percentage of successful and popular songs from his or her body of work. And then the second connect came when Arun ji deposited on the Whatsapp group, a reminder of the Mukesh anniversary program on Doordarshan seven years ago. I recalled that this was also the very first question that the person interviewing me and Shikha ji, put to me in this program. That question was – “Mukesh ji has about 800 songs to his credit? Why does it always seem that has sung much more?”

And my answer was exactly on these lines – in any singer’s body of work, there is a certain percentage of songs which are memorable, which became popular, and which are quite well retained in the memory. However, with all other singers, this ratio of popular and memorable songs to their total repertoire, is comparatively lower. By extrapolating this expectation, the mind always thinks that in case of Mukesh, his body of work ought to be much larger, if the number of his popular and memorable songs is so much. This is a very interesting point. After that TV program, I had this very discussion with a number of friends, and mostly we agreed to this conclusion.

No doubt the music director and the poet – they have a very significant contribution towards the creation of a song. But it is the voice of Mukesh, that makes something different out of any song. That is what has made so large a percentage of his songs popular and memorable. A soulful voice – that was my assertion on that TV program also, that – “मुकेश जी की आवाज़ में एक अनोखी आत्मीयता है, जो किसी और गायक में नहीं मिलती”.  There is this so unique a characteristic of his rendition – an effortless exposition of the emotions, expressed in a most relaxing mode.

I feel I could go on and on. But then, not now. Another song, another post – there seems to be so much more one wants to say about this soulful, mellifluous voice – almost divine.

Blog Day : 4035 Post No. : 15159

———————————————–——————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 42
——————————————————————————————

Though I have been discussing Hindi movie songs in the blog for more than a decade now, it is not as if I had watched too many movies during my “formative” years. I recall having watched a few movies in early 1970s, with the last of these movies being “Zindagi Zindagi” (1972) in 1972.

My movie watching spree began in 1978 (after six years) when I joined college and got “freedom” that I as a college goer was “supposed” to enjoy. 🙂 And I fully misused my freedom, by watching movies when I should have been attending my classes.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched not just the current movies but also those movies which had come between 1972 and 1978 which I had missed during their time. This included all Amitabh Bachchan hit movies like “Zanjeer” (1973), “Deewaar”(1975), “Sholay” (1975) etc.

When my pre teen movie watching ended in 1972, I had watched very few movies. I could only identify Rajesh Khanna, Tanuja, Mumtaz etc thanks to Rajesh Khanna movies like “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh” (1972) that I got to watch at that time. Thanks to watching “Haqeeqat”(1964) is an open field show at night in my railway colony, I became familiar with Dharmendra. In another such free show, I watched “Dil Diya Dard Liya”(1966) and that is how I became familiar with Dilip Kumar.

That was about it. I had not watched any movies of Rajendra Kumar, Raj Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Hema Malini, Sanjeev Kumar, Saira Bano etc till 1978 !

During my “catching up with lost time” movie watching spree, I watched “Resham Ki Dori”(1974) some time in 1978 or 1979. This movie, as I know now thanks to HFGK, was directed by Atmaram for Modern Pictures Bombay. The movie had Saira Bano, Dharmendra, Kumud Chhugaani, Rajendranath, Sujit Kumar, Sajja, Ramesh Deo, Rajan Haksar, Jayshree T, Kundan, Meena T, Bhagwan, Shabnam, Sapru, Shivraj, Jankidas, Keshav Rana, Sundar, Master Sachin, Ramlal, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Radheshyam, Chaand Usmani (Special appearance), Kanwar Ajit, Suresh, Murad etc in it.

Except Dharmendra, almost every other actor in the movie was “new” and unfamiliar for me. Many of them continued to remain unfamiliar to me for decades. For instance, I was not aware which actress played the sister of Dharmendra in this movie. Somehow I had erroneously assumed that she was called Urmila Bhatt (I find , to my surprise that she is not even there in the cast). Only now, when I checked up the starcast, I realised that the sister had to be Kumud Chhugaani.

The movie had six songs in it. The most popular song of the song was the raakhi song and it was posted exactly ten years ago. So that means that this day ten year ago was the festival of Rakshabandhan. And as was the practice in the blog, Rakhi related songs were discussed on the blog on that day (5 august 2009).

Today, as part of blog ten year challenge (2009-2019), here is a song from “Resham Ki Dori”(1974). This song is a lovers’s song. It is sung by Rafi, with a few sweet nothings uttered by Saira Bano (I guess). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Dharmendra and Saira Bano. It was for the first time in this movie that I had seen Saira Bano in a movie. I had not seen her in “Padosan”(1968) because my elders did not take me to watch this (or other well known movies) of those days.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by avinash Scrapwala.

The song is a bacround song which is picturised as a bidaai song. The picturisation shows Hema Malini is a doli, with this song being played in the background. The picturisation shows Rajesh Khanna (the bridegroom), alongwith Tej Sapru (his father) and other members of Barat party. In a distance Dharmendra is seen astride a horse.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. He points out that he audio of this song is longer than the video by one stanza and more. Lyrics are as per the full audio version.

Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019)-Song number 24
—————————————————-
Nowadays, we generally believe that the golden era of HFM lasted from 1949 till 1980 and after that the general standards of HFM fell down several notches, never to recover again.

When I was growing up in 1970s, I felt that this deterioration of HFM had started in 1970s itself. Some of the songs that later were considered classics were regarded by mediocre by me during those days. For instance, the songs of “Do Chor”(1972) were mediocre for me. Song like Yaari ho gayi yaar se lak tunoo tunoo was jarring to my ears. “Sanyaasi” (1974) songs were downright mediocre as far as I was concerned.

Many Laxmikant Pyarelal compositions of 1970s were chaalu to my ears and I did not like them much. I did not like the songs of “Suhaag”(1979) much but today these songs are considered near classics.

“Aas Paas”(1980) songs were very much mediocre songs to my ears and minds. No wonder that I did not watch this movie. The most chaalu and popular song of the movie was Tum jo chale gaye to hogi badi kharaabi. This movie made its debut in the blog with this song. That was on 31 march 2009, viz exactly ten years ago.

The movie had six songs in it, but only one more song from the movie has since been covered. This second song is Hamko bhi gham ne maara which was posted on 6 december 2013. After that, there has been no more covereage of songs from this movie for more than five years.

Now, thanks to the “blog ten year challenge” series, this movie “Aas Paas”(1980) came to the notice of Avinash Scrapwala and he sent the lyrics of another song from “Aas Paas”(1980).

This song, the third from the movie to appear in the blog, is sung by Rafi and Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is omposed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a typical Punjabi style dance song. It is picturised on Dharmendra, Hema Malini and many other male and female dancers in bright colorful attires. harmendra with his two left feet style dancing makes for a sharp contrast from Hema Malini, a dancing exponent.

As mentioned earlier, I had not watched this movie during its time and I was not even aware of this song till now. So this song comes in the blog exactly ten years after another song appeared in the blog. And at the same time, this song comes to my notice some four decades after it was created. So I suppose this can also form some kind of a challenge series, viz – Songs coming to notice forty year after its creation. 🙂

For now, here is this latest presentation under the “Blog Ten Year Challenge (2009-2019)” series.

Blog Day : 3893 Post No. : 14929

This article touches upon “blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)” but this article is not part of that series. It is not possible to post an article in this series Today (16 march 2019), because movies of all the songs (all six of them) that were covered ten years ago (on 16 march 2009) have already been YIPPEED by now. 🙂

This blog ten year challenge (2009-2019) was started to serve some purpose, though we were not fully clear about them.

Let me try and enumerate them one by one.

Revisit movies that have not been revisited for years
————————————————————————-
Songs and movies that we covered ten years ago and then forgot about those movies once again get our attention. Take “Sharaabi”(1984) for instance. It was as a result of this series that we realised that this movie, despite being introduced in the blog as far back as in 2009 had only three songs in the blog and that no songs from this movie were covered in the blog since 2012 !

The case of “Do Dishaayen”(1982) was specially remarkable. The movie had three songs in it. Two of these songs were covered on consecutive days on 2 and 3 february 2009 and then we forgot all about this movie. Thanks to this series, the third and final song from the movie got covered ten years after its debut in the blog and the movie got YIPPEED on 3 february 2019.

Likewise, movies like “Gomti Ke Kinaare”(1972) etc got fresh lease of life in the blog as a result of this series.

A fillip to YIPPEE project
——————————————
As a result of this series, we found that a few movies whose songs got covered became YIPPEED as well. For instance, when we covered this song from “Sitaaron Se Aage”(1958), this had the added advantage of this movie getting YIPPEED as well.In other case, after we covered a song from a movie, we realised that the movie had one or two songs left and so that movie came under our radar for YIPPYdom.

Bringing back memories
———————————————-
For some regulars (especially those born in 1960s), this series brought back memories of the past.

A better appreciation of the past
————————————————–
The blog has evolved over a period of more than ten years. It has changed a lot. The way songs and movies were chosen in the past has undergone a change with time, though all these changes are mostly inadvertent and largely unplanned. Only some other observers can notice any patterns in the song posts of the blog one decade ago.

Mr Sadanand Kamath, our inhouse HFM researcher, who posted an article in the series carried out some indepth research on the way songs were covered ten years ago. He observed that

during July 19, 2008 to December 31, 2008, an overwhelming number of songs covered were of the films released in the 1960s and 70s with few songs from the 1950s and 1980s. However, the representation of songs from the films released in the 1930s and 40s were negligible. For instance, out of 475 songs covered during the period under reference, only 5 songs pertained to the films released in the 1940s – that too the late 1940s. Not a single songs of films released in the 1930s were covered during the period under reference.

These trends were, however, on the expected lines for two reasons. First, Atul ji, considering his age profile at the time of starting of the Blog, has virtually grown up in the midst of popular songs of the films of 1960s and 70s. Obviously, as a ‘start-up venture’ of his Blog, he would have been influenced by such songs. Secondly, and most importantly, even if he intended to cover the songs of the 1930s and 40s, I doubt whether these songs were available in good numbers on the video sharing platforms in 2008. Youtube was set up in 2005 as a video sharing platform. A random browsing of videos on YT gives me an impression that videos of Hindi film songs were uploaded in good numbers only from 2007 onward and the videos of old film songs (1930s and 40s) were getting uploaded mainly from 2009 onward.

The song under discussion is not a “ten year challenge” song, but this song appears here today as a result of this exercise. Another song from this movie “Raja Jani”(1972) was part of the “ten year challenge” post on 5 march 2019. That post triggered all kinds of nostalgic feelings among regulars. This movie “Raja Jani”(1972) had made its debut on the 22nd day of the blog on 9 august 2008 and it was the 22nd post in the blog. By the time the second post from this movie appeared on 5 april 2009, the blog was more than one thousand songs old. The third song from the movie came after a gap of 5800 songs in 4 november 2012. After that there was a big gap of over six years during which this movie was all but forgotten.

It was on 5 march 2019 that the fourth song from “Raja Jani”(1972) was covered as a part of “blog ten year challenge”. It was then that we realised that the movie was another two songs short of being YIPPEED.

One of these two missing songs has subsequently been covered in the blog.

Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been covered so far:-

Mr Pratap, senior to most of us had watched this movie when it was released. Here is what he has to say about this movie:

I saw the movie when it was released and remember that I enjoyed it mainly due to the songs.

As far as I recall, the story was a standard formula one, Hema Malini is a lost princess, raised by Nadira and earns her living through dances and acrobatics. Dharmendra is the lovable rogue who notices the similarity of Hema with the description of the lost princess in the posters/newspaper ads and thinks up a scheme of passing her off as the princess and get the promised reward. Durga Khote is the grandmother Rajmata who is literally dying for the lost girl. She gladly accepts Hema and soon announces her engagement to the evil Prime Minister Premnath’s still more evil son Prem Chopra. Hema is heartbroken when she learns that Darmendra was using her as a pawn to get the reward and she accepts. Not very original, so you know the rest of the story.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Raja Jani”(1972) to appear in the blog. The song is chronologically the first song of the movie. It is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

One can watch the picturisation and guess what is going on, in the light of the movie synopsis provided earlier.

In this blog, we first cover a song and then regulars post comment about that song. The song is “special” because this song has received comments about it even before it has been posted. These comments were posted in the penultimate song post of course. For instance, Peevesie’s mom commented that

A song that I love, specially “shanno naam uska” line.
I used to substitute shanno with my name. 😉

With this song, all the songs of “Raja Jani” (1972) have been covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPIED in the blog.


Song-Duniya ka mela mele mein ladki (Raja Jaani)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 11
————————————————

5th March, 2009. As many as nine song posted on that day. Of course, from 9 different films. And guess what, over the years, eight of these films have been yippeee’d already. The films are

  • ‘Shahjehaan’ from 1946,
  • ‘Munim ji’ from 1955,
  • ‘Kaala Pani’ from 1958,
  • ‘Goonj Uthi Shehna’ from 1959,
  • ‘Umar Qaid’ from 1961,
  • ‘Bin Baadal Barsaat’ and ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ from 1963,
  • and then ‘Anubhav’ from 1971,
  • and lastly ‘Raja Jaani’ from 1972.

Except for the last listed film above, all the other eight films that appeared on that day have all their songs posted here. And so the only option left to present a 10 year challenge post is a song from ‘Raja Jaani’ from 1972.

The song I present today is performed on screen by Hema Malini, as she is making efforts to woo and evoke the interest in the mind of a reluctant hero – Dharmendra. It was a time when the real life romance of Hema Malini and Dharmendra was just taking off and was coming in the notice of the media and the public. It is speculative to say whether such a real life situation adds to the reel performances. 🙂

The songs of this film are written by Anand Bakshi, and the music is by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar. The performance gets quite close to the category of a ‘seduction’ song.

‘Reel-life’ or ‘Real-life’ – I leave it up to the readers to judge. 😉

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 10
————————————————

Today is 27 february 2019. The day is almost over and the first post of the day is just about coming up. Things were much different on this day ten years ago. On that day (27 february 2009), as many as seven songs were covered. Those were the days when I would discuss six or seven sog a day with ease, and a century of songs would come up in sixteen days or so.

Even I am surprised at the level of energy motivation and passion that I used to possess those days. 🙂

Coming to this day ten years ago, as many as seven songs were covered. Six of these movies have been YIPPEED by now. The only unyippeed movie from that day is “Kaajal”(1965).

“Kaajal”(1965) was directed by Ram Maheshwari for Kalpanalok, Bombay. The movie had Meena Kumari, Raj Kumar, Dharmendra, Padmini, Sailesh Kumar, Helen, Durga Khoy=te, Jageerdar, Tiwari, Mahendra, Gopal Sahgal, Tuntun, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Abhimanyu Sharma, Polson, Rajan Kapoor, Mumtaz, Mehmood etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Eight songs from the movie have been covered in the past. The movie made its debut in the blog on this day ten years ago with the song Tora man darpan kahlaaye.

I had not watched any movies in movie halls from 1972 to 1977. Only after I reached College and got “freedom” that I began to watch movies with a vengeance, as if to make up for lost time. It was during this movie watching spree that I watched “Kaajal” (1965) in 1978 or 1979 in a movie hall called Ratan Talkies in Ranchi. So that was nearly forty years ago. I think that this cinema hall no longer exists. If we have any Ranchi based readers then I request the to help confirm or refute this fact.

When I watched the movie, I kept getting surprised repeatedly by the feeling-“arre, ye gaana is film ka hai”. The movie was full of well known timeless classic songs. Base somewhere in a neighbouring state, Raja too independently felt the same way when he watched this movie.

Coming to today’s song, it is a “shringaar” ras song which is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi, whom I had begun to regard as a creator of conic songs, thanks to a plethora of sungs composed by him that had ended up becoming timeless classics.

This song is picturised on Dharmendra and Padmini. Incidentally, This movie was the first occasion for me to watch Dharmendra, Padmini and many others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila (Kaajal)(1965) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila
jazbaat ko ab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila
jazbaat ko ab mil jaane do
jis tarah mili hai do roohen
us tarah se lab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila

seene se hataa do aanchal ko
shaane se jhatak do zulfon ko
seene se hataa do aanchal ko
shaane se jhatak do zulfon ko
shaane se jhatak do zulfon ko
jaati huyi rangeen ghadiyon ko
rukne ka sabab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila

in paak gunaahon ki ghadiyaan
aati hai magar har raat nahin
in paak gunaahon ki ghadiyaan
aati hai magar har raat nahin
aati hai magar har raat nahin
is raat mein sab kho jaane do
is raat mein sab mil jaane do
muddat ki tamannaaon ka sila

मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला
जज़्बात को अब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला
जज़्बात को अब मिल जाने दो
जिस तरह मिली है दो रूहें
उस तरह से लब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला

सीने से हटा दो आँचल को
शाने से झटक दो जुल्फों को
सीने से हटा दो आँचल को
शाने से झटक दो जुल्फों को ओ
शाने से झटक दो जुल्फों को
जाती हुयी हंगीन घड़ियों को
रुकने का सबब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला

इन पाक गुनाहों कि घड़ियाँ
आती है मगर हर रात नहीं
इन पाक गुनाहों कि घड़ियाँ
आती है मगर हर रात नहीं ई
आती है मगर हर रात नहीं
इस रात में सब खो जाने दो
इस रात में सब मिल जाने दो
मुद्दत की तमन्नाओं का सिला

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 75# Dharmendra- Memories of the Seventies #
————————————————————————————————–

 Welcome all to this article of mine which comes after a long gap of more than a month, and though I am late in sending this article, I hope our editors will consider this for post. And that will also help me in getting back into the ‘article writing’ again, because since last two months I am trying to complete and send some of my unfinished articles, but the schedule at work front and very less time after official work is not allowing me time and the concentration to focus on the articles I wish to share.

Well, with this article I hope I get back into writing and share my thoughts taking you down memory lane into the ‘seventies’ again 🙂

***

8th December 2018 is the 83rd birth anniversary (08.12.1935) of actor Dharam Singh Deol whom we fondly know as Dharmendra. And, ‘maa kasam …’ 🙂 , he will be there in our fond memories of the movies from almost every decade ever since he began his career in the Hindi movies with ‘Dil Bhi Tera Ham Bhi Tere’ (1960) till the very recently released movie ‘Yamla Pagla Deewaana-Phir Se’ (2018).

For me I have fond memories of watching many of his movies with my uncles, like ‘Shikaar’ (1966), ‘Yakeen’ (1969), ‘Kab? Kyun? Aur Kahaan?’ (1970), ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ (1971), ‘Resham Ki Dori’ (1974), ‘Raja Jaani’ (1973), and more. Then I also remember some of his movies which I must have watched with my parents like ‘Yaadon Ki Baarat’ (1973), ‘Dost’ (1974), ‘Sholay’ (1975), ‘Maa’ (1976), ‘Charas’ (1976), ‘Dream Girl’ (1977), ‘The Burning Train’ (1980) etc. I still remember watching his ‘Devar’ (1966), during the Ganpati Festivals on the small 16mm screen in open grounds in the seventies.

Then there were movies which I watched with my brothers and cousins during the ‘summer vacations’ like ‘Dharam-Veer’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Ram Balram’ (1980), ‘Teesri Aaankh’ (1982), ‘Samrat’ (1982), ‘Main Intaqaam Loonga’ (1982). And then movies like ‘Aap Ki Parchhaayiyaan’ (1964), ‘Main Bhi Ladki Hoon’ (1964), ‘Izzat’ (1968), ‘Mere Hamdam Mere Dost’ (1968), ‘Khamoshi’ (1969), ’Sharaafat’ (1970), ‘Samadhi’ (1972), ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’ (1973), ‘Chaitaali’ (1975), ‘Chupke-Chupke’ (1975), ‘Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka’ (1975), ‘Kinaara’ (1977), ‘Blackmail’ (1978), ‘Dillagi’ (1978) which I watched during the weekly screening of movies in the re-creation club building in our colony where we were staying then.

Then, when I was a grown-up boy 🙂 there was a phase in my life when I was learning in 11 -12th std but was less on studies and more on cricket and movies. I watched many of his movies like ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), ‘Pyaar Hi Pyaar’ (1968), ‘Jugnu’ (1973), ‘Patthar Aur Paayal’ (1974), ‘Pratigya’ (1975), and the other movies released during those years (1983-1985) i.e. ‘Naukar Biwi Ka’ (1983), ‘Qayaamat’ (1983), ‘Jeene Nahin Doonga’ (1984), ‘Baazi’ (1984), ‘Dharam Aur Kanoon’ (1984), ‘Jaagir’ (1984), ‘Jhoothha Sach’ (1984), ‘Raj Tilak’ (1984) etc. And then I got to watch some movies like ‘Bandini’ (1963), ‘Neela Aakaash’ (1965), and ‘Satyakaam’ (1969), ‘Phagun’ (1973), on television (‘Doordarshan’) during this period.

The above was when we were still located in the Akola District of Maharashtra (CP & Berar circuit for the movies). And by that time I was already a Rajesh Khanna fan 🙂 . Reading the film magazines then I came to know that it was Dharmendra whose movies were still running good even during the Kaka’s Superstardom days. After that we shifted to Parli Vaijnath – Marathwada region of Maharashtra (and known as in the Nizam Circuit for the movies).

There I had already taken up working in a construction company and during this period till 1988 I watched many of the old and new movies. I remember I watched Dharmendra’s ‘Aaayi Milan Ki Bela’ (1964), ‘Kaajal’ (1965), ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ (1966), ‘Anupama’ (1966), ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ (1966), ‘Phool Aur Patthar’ (1966), ’Aankhen’ (1968), ‘Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke’ (1969), ‘Rakhwaala’ (1971), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Keemat’ (1973), ‘Baghaawat’ (1982), ‘Hukumat’ (1987), ‘Aag Hi Aag’ (1987) etc.

Then I shifted to Kota (Rajasthan) in Nov 1988 for my professional career and there also watching the movies was the ‘main source of entertainment’. I got to watch many old Hindi movies as well as the new ones. I got to watch Dharmendra’s movies like ‘Batwaara’ (1989), ‘Naakabandi’ (1990), ‘Farishtey’ (1991) and after many years I got to watch ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’ (1971) again in a theater. I watched the film repeatedly on consecutive days and enjoyed it a lot. Later on, based at Kota and traveling around places like Nimach, I watched ‘Tehalka’ (1992). I also remember correctly that I watched his ‘Man Ki Aankhen’ (1970), on VHS cassettes on ‘VCR’ we use to hire to watch movies then during our weekly get-together or holiday. Later I bought VCDs of the films ‘Ganga Ki Lehren’ (1964), ‘Dulhan Ek Raat Ki’ (1967), which has one of my favorite songs “Ek Haseen Shaam Ko. . .“.

And there are other movies like ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1968), ‘Bahaarein Phir Bhi Aayengi’ (1966), ‘Chunaoti’ (1980), ‘Do Chor’ (1972), ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ (1970), ’Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Jwaar Bhaata’ (1973), ‘Kahaani Kismat Ki’ (1973), ‘Mohabbat Zindagi Hai’ (1966), ‘Naya Zamaana’ (1971), ‘Razia Sultan’ (1983), ‘Tum Haseen Main Jawaan’ (1970), which I don’t remember correctly but I think I watched them either in theatre or on TV. As I was going through his filmography for this article, I was thinking that there are still many movies of him (till seventies) which I have not watched and should watch them as and when possible.

The latest movies that I have seen of Dharmendra is ‘Apne’ (2007), which I could not watch in theatre when I was in Kachchh-Gujarat and had later bought its DVD and watched with my parents and family at home.

Watching his movies has always been a different experience and entertaining and enjoyable too. I think me, and many others like me, will always be thankful to him for the joy he has given to us through his movies. His fight scenes with Shetty are always a favorite of mine and those were the main attractions from his movies too, wherever Shetty was co-star in the movies he acted.

Then there are songs from his ‘black and white’ movies and many other ‘musicals’ of the ‘seventies’ which I cannot forget and many of them are ‘songs that brings back memories’ for me. I have watched many of his movies more than once and it is always pleasant to watch him on the screen. I cannot forget his ‘emotional speech’ in the ‘Filmfare awards function’ when he was felicitated with the ‘Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award’.

His movies also have many emotional scenes between a ‘mother and son’ where I always find him very natural and touching. For today’s occasion I am presenting a song from the 1976 movie ‘Maa’. As I had mentioned earlier in one of my articles that there are few Hindi movies where an elephant has been a central character in the movies and few of these movies have been a part of my permanent memory since then. I remember to have watched this movie with my parents but have forgotten it now except Dharmendra, the elephants in the movie and this song that I am presenting today.

Though the song is a background song and not lip-synced by Dharmendra, I want to introduce it with this article. (I had earlier sent this song to Atul ji in Oct 2012). Also, this is the song which brings back memories of those years for me. It is part of that ‘nostalgia’ of Hindi movies and the songs for me over the years.

So, I when decided to share an article for Dharmendra’s birth anniversary (now belated), I searched for other songs from his movies where he also lip-synced the songs, or even from this movie ‘Maa’, but I strongly feel sharing of this song sung by Rafi Saab which is a trip down memory lane for me from the movies of Dharmendra of the seventies.

‘Maa-1976’ is edited and directed by M.A. Thirumugam for ‘Devar Films, Madras’. It is produced by Sandow M.M.A. Chinnappa Devar who had also written the story of this movie. It has Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Nirupa Roy, Ranjeet, Padma Khanna, Devar, Om Prakash, Paintal, Bramhachari, Shashi Kiran, Rajan Haksar, Urmila Bhatt, Umesh Sharma, Raj Baldev, Viju, Kalpana, Gemini Balu, Narayan Mustafa, Anand Kumar and others. Dialogues for this movie were written by Inder Raj Anand and editing was done by M.G. Balurao (assisted by K. Ramu). The movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.09.1976.

The movie has total seven songs in it as per HFGK and all the seven songs are written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. HFGK also mentions about two tracks as club dance music and dance music in this movie. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

I am reproducing below the ‘plot summary’ of this movie as mentioned on IMDB

Vijay lives with his mother in a palatial house deep in the jungles in South India where he makes a living trapping animals for circuses, zoos – both nationally and internationally. He meets with beautiful US-returned Nimmi, both fall in love with each other and want to get married. Vijay’s mother cautions them both against separating new-born animals from their birth mothers, but both refuse to listen. Then the unexpected happens, a mother lioness, angered at Vijay for taking her cubs, attacks him, and leaves him badly wounded. With the help of his mother, and Nimmi, Vijay recovers and despite of what happened, and his mother’s warning, he again goes to trap animals – this time a baby elephant for a circus. He does manage to trap the elephant in a pit, but the angered mother elephant pursues them, even after they transport it in a truck. Her maternal and protective instincts come to fore, she overtakes the truck, dismantles it, but is chased away by Vijay and his employees. She turns to attack Vijay, but his mother intervenes – and is instantly attacked and crushed. Holding his mother in his arms, Vijay swears to hunt them the elephant as well as all other animals and kill them one by one, but his dying mother makes him promise that he will not do so, but instead return all cubs to their parents, as well as the baby elephant. Vijay promises to do so, and his mother passes away. Vijay is devastated, in heart-wrenching sorrow & pain, he calls out to his mother, and carries out her promise. He releases all trapped animals, and returns the cubs to the jungle. But returning the baby elephant, Ganesh, is another issue altogether as it has been transported to the city, and must be brought back. When Vijay goes to bring it back, he finds out that the truck had broken down, the elephant had escaped and is lose in the city. He desperately goes around looking for it. In the meantime, back home, the mother elephant is on a rampage, enraged at being separated from its child, it crushes vegetation, attacks villagers, and tears down their dwellings. And the next target that looms before it is none other than Vijay’s beloved – Nimmi…

 Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. The movie ‘Maa’ also makes a debut on the blog today …!!!

Belatedly wishing Dharam ji a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

[Author’s Note: This also serves one of my purpose of introducing movies having ‘same title’ too. We already have the movie ‘Maa-1952’ and ‘Maa-1960’(UR) on the blog. And fortunately, I had the opportunity to share couple of songs from the ‘1952-Maa’ and one song from the ‘1960-Maa’ on the blog].

Blog Day : 3795 Post No. : 14783

Hullo, hi, pranaam. Good day to all of Atuldom.

Today (8 december 2018) we have a handsome man turning a year older. He has crossed 80 a few years ago but that has not reduced his charisma or charm or fan-following. He is still active on the silver-screen, even if only in home productions, and has his sons as his co-stars.

He has had a rather loooonnnngggg journey having started in 1960. He was the son of a village school headmaster in Ludhiana of Punjab. His mother was the one who supported him in fulfilling his dream of being an actor (he has mentioned this in various interviews of his). He was bitten by the acting bug after seeing Dilip Kumar on-screen. To pursue his dream, he entered the Filmfare New Talent Contest and won it. He was launched by Arjun Hingorani in “Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere” in 1960. From then on, he has been entertaining us.

Dharmendra – the he-man with a soft heart. I have read in numerous of his interviews and heard him on television too that his home is always open to anyone who needs his help. The first time I registered this actor or fell in love with him was probably in “Guddi” along with Jaya Bhadhuri (she was also shown to be a Dharmendra fan) or was it in “Seeta aur Geeta”. Or it could be that I saw “Sholay” fell in love with Veeru and then subsequently saw “Guddi” and “Seeta aur Geeta” on Doordarshan and realized who Raka or Dharmendra (he played himself in Guddi) the actor was.

After “Sholay” I have seen many of his movies, even those where he stood next to a bookshelf and sang – “ya dil ki suno duniyawalon ya mujhko abhi chup rehne do” or stood looking out of a window with the “Meghdhoot” in had singing – “tum pukarlo, tumhara intezaar hai”. Loved him even with his heavy lip-sticked- makeup singing “aap ki haseen rukh pe aaj naya noor hai”.

How can anyone forget his pairing with Meena Kumari, Asha Parekh, Waheeda Rehman, Nutan, Vyjayanthimala, Sadhana, Saira Bano, Mumtaz, Babita and all the other ladies of the 60s. He is a lucky guy as he got to romance all the leading ladies of the 70s & 80s. He was sensible enough in not trying to play a romantic lead in the 90s and the few movies where he had heroines it was either Jaya Prada or Sridevi. In the other movies he played a mentor or guardian to the hero or heroine as in “Dadagiri” {1987} he mentors Padmini Kolhapure and helps her in her mission to take revenge against Amrish Puri.

Similarly, in the 1988 “Paap ko jalakar raakh kar doonga” he is shown his to keep his emotions under control in front of his niece played by Farha after her husband is killed by ‘goondas’ and quietly trying to take revenge against the people responsible of the havoc caused in his ‘hasta khelta’ niece’s life. He is an actor who held his ground during the Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan wave.

There are many movies starring Dharmendra and we have covered all his popular ones. Atleast that is what I expected. But I am proved wrong there are many more out there which makes it a difficult job to decide what song to present here. I am taking the easy way out and posting the song which is topmost on my head. It is by the Kishore Kumar- Anand Bakshi- R D Burman trio, from the 1978 Pramod Chakravarty produced and directed “Azaad” which was decently successful at the box office.

It was a typical masala movie where Hema Malini played a rich-spoilt- haughty princess and Dharam an eccentric do-gooder (Ashok) who first has his run-ins with the Rajkumari, teaches her to respect food, the poor etc and finally lands up in a factory owned by her. The movie goes through the routine of the princess trying to humiliate Ashok, then falling in love with him and the evil villains trying every trick to bring the movie to the climax.

Today’s song happens when Hema is in the haughty phase and Dharam wants to protect all of the jungle creatures if possible. The song shows our darling Dharam in his trade mark style of being rough and tough (junglee to an extent) and Prem Chopra to be a little stupid. But this is the perfect song to show who or what we experienced when we saw Dharmendra on screen in the late 70s and early 80s.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday dear Veeru or Garam Dharam alias Dharmendra.

thhaam ke apne dil ko phir tum saamne aana
arre pehle bano nishaana
phir tum teer chalaana
thhaam ke apne dil ko phir tum saamne aana
tum jaise dekhe hain
maine bade saiyyaad
main laila ka majnu
shireen ka farhaad
main aazaad
main aazaad

mujhse bachke rehna
baat bigad jaayegi
saari raat kasam se tumko
neend nahin aayegi
arre mujhse bachke rehna
baat bigad jaayegi
saari raat kasam se tumko
neend nahin aayegi
bhool na paaogi tum
main aaunga yaad
main laila ka majnu
shireen ka farhaad
main aazaad
main aazaad

inn aankhon ke raste
dil mein bas jaaoonga
tum naagin toh main sapera
tumko das jaaoonga
arre inn aankhon ke raste
dil mein bas jaaoonga
tum naagin to main sapera
tumko das jaaoonga
ab karti ho gussa
phir karna fariyaad
main laila ka majnu
shireen ka farhaad
main aazaad
