Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 114
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this date viz on 16th October 2012, five songs from five different movies were covered on the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6861 Ambuaa ki daal daali jhoom rahi hai aali Vidhyapati (1937) Movie YIPPEED by now
6862 Tum bhi wohi ho main bhi wohi hoon Siskiyaan (UR)(1952) Unreleased movie. Number of songs unknown

6864 Ye mausam bheega bheega hai Dharti (1970) Movie YIPPEED by now
6865 Kisi shaayar ki ghazal dream girl Dream Girl (1977) 5 songs out of six covered

We can see from the above that four movies (out of six) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago (16 october 2012) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. Out of remaining two movies, one movie was unreleased and totl number of songs recorded for that movie is not known. Other songs of that unrelaesed movie may not be available either.

That leaves us with only one movie that is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (16 october 2022).

That movie is “Dream Girl”(1977).

“Dream Girl”(1977) was produced by I K Bahl & Jaya Chakravorty and directed by Pramod Chakravorty for Trimurty Films, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Prem Chopra, Lalita Pawar, Dina Pathak, Komila Wirk, Alka, Pinchoo Kapoor, S.N.Bannerjee, Sapru, Parveen Paul, Birbal, Kuljeet, Shaikh, Lalita Kumari(Sinha), Dube, Satyen Kapoo, Ritu Kamal, Madhu Chauhan, Kamal, Julie, Millie, Ratna, Madhup Sharma, Jagdish Raj, Rajan Kapoor, Mirza,  Mohan,  Jaswant, Darshan, Shidke, Bihari, Randhir, Dhumal, Master Chintoo, Rajoo, Alankar, Ladoo, Padmini Kolhapure, Chikoo, Bunty, Bobby, Madhu Malini,Jang Bahadur, Pallavi, Komal, Titoo, Romy, Ravi, Abbas, Asrani etc. The movie also had Seema deo, Ramesh deo, Mohan Choti and Sujit Kumar in special appearances.

“Dream Girl”(1977) had six songs in it. Five songs have already been covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Blog post number song Date of post Singer (s)
6865 Kisi shaayar ki ghazal dream girl 16 october 2012 Kishore Kumar
8843 Duniya ke log kitne achche hote 16 october 2013 Asha Bhonsle
10969 Hua kya agar tu zara bewafa hai 24 march 2015 Hema Malini, Kishore Kumar
15975 Chhuppa chhuppi khelen aao Multiple version song 16 october 2020 Lata Mangeshkar

One can notice that all songs (except one song) of “Dream Girl”(1977) have appeared on the blog on 16 october of various years. That is no coincidence. This date happens to be the birthday of Hema Malini (DoB 16 october 1948). Moreover, all these posts have been by different posters, all obviously great fans of Hema Malini.

It must be said that Hema Malini had aged gracefully. She still appears in advertisements and helps sell household products like water filter. If a person unfamiliar with Hema Malini is informed that she is 74 years old then he/she will refuse to accept it ! That is how young and well preserved she looks.

Peevesie’s mom, who was the poster of Duniya ke log kitne achche hote the Hema Malini birthday article on 16 october 2013, had the good fortune of once meeting Hema Malini personally at an airport and Hema Malini graciously agreed to get herself photographed with Peevesie’s mom. 🙂

Hema Malini was a Rajya Sabha member from 2003 to 2009. Today Hema Malini is a Member of Lok Sabha from Mathura (UP). She has no connections with Mathura or UP,  still she continues to win parliamentary election from this seat comfortably. Today she is into her second term as an MP from Mathura. It shows how popular she still is all over India.

She obviously looks after the needs of her constituency. I can vouch for that. I was posted at Izatnagar workshop (Bareilly) which is located near Mathura. I received a letter from her that the Railbus running between Mathura and Vrindawan had become overaged and gone out of order. A new rail bus may kindly be manufactured in Izatnagar workshop for this service. I wondered why railbus, clearly a loss making proposition should be manufactured. Hema Malini clearly had influence among the higher echelons of Railways, because a senior officer from North Central Railway (under whose jurisdiction Mathura falls), visited me and convinced me why manufacturing this railbus was important for Mathura as well as for Railways.

This new railbus, manufactured in Izatnagar Railway workshop, is today an important tourist attraction in Mathura. 🙂

We take this opportunity to wish Hema Malini a very happy birthday. Let there be many more returns of the day.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dream Girl”(1977) that is bound to chear everyone up. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The lilting music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The song is lip synced by Hema Malini. Sujeeet Kumar, Dharmendra, Asrani, Rajrani, Mohan Choti etc can also be seen in the picturisation.

With this song, the sixth and final song from “Dream Girl”(1977), all the songs of the movie have now been covered in the blog. With this song, “Dream Girl”(1977) joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Lyrics of this song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today 4th August 2022 is the ninety-third birth anniversary (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) of Kishore Kumar.

For the music lovers and readers associated with this blog today is another great day and we remember Kishore Da today and pay our tributes to him today here on the blog.

Today I have been late in sending this post to our editors and I sincerely hope that they will get time to consider and post this one. For more than a month now there is a ‘special project’ going at my workplace and because of this I am getting very less time to participate in blog activities. Though I wish to write and send many posts and many songs keep going through my mind on daily basis, but I am unable to concentrate and put in my energy on writing. I hope things to get back to normal after this ‘two months’ project gets over.

Today’s post got delayed because I was unable to make my mind up while making the selection. There are so many Kishore Kumar songs yet to be posted on the blog.
Since today is his birth anniversary I first looked for a happy song, then a fun song, then a romantic song, only a solo song, inspirational song, motivational song etc etc.

There was one song lying since years and pending to be posted, but it was a duet song and I did not wish to post a duet on this occasion today. I even noted two other songs, but then decided to send other.

Finally, I selected a Pancham composition which is in a sombre mood. Nevertheless listening to Kishore Kumar’s voice in this soulful song will bring back many memories for the readers. Poetry in the song by Majrooh Saab is also very nice and philosophical. The music prelude, the guitar and the mouth organ in between used in this composition is also very nice to listen to.

The movie and its songs were not much popular during its time. Nevertheless the overall musical score for this movie by Pancham Da is very very nice.

So here I am presenting a song from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Sitamgar’.

‘Sitamgar-1985’ was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal.

It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar, and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania, and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie.

V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D. Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra who is riding on a horse. It reminds us of many songs with similar picturisation.

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

The audio version is having three stanzas while the video of this song is of only two stanzas.

Let us now listen to the great voice Kishore Kumar and take a journey down memory lane …

Blog Day :

Remembering Mohammed Rafi on his 42nd death anniversary.

This is the date, which brings me back from a brief hiatus.
Over the years we have been celebrating this anniversary with various contributors and writers pouring their own thought out about Rafi Sahab in innumerable posts in the blog.

Rafi Sahab is the 2nd highest contributor to the blog, with 3202 songs posted and first is inevitably Lata Mangeshkar with 3793 songs. These two are closely followed by Asha Bhonsle with 2955 songs posted in the blog. Among these giant artists, Rafi Sahab held his own. No other male singer is in the same league with such volume of songs.

As usual, looking for a song to post, I got hold of a few Rafi songs from the 50’s decade, and saved the links and info on a new file. The final selection was a fun and mischief song, and I thought I always end up posting a happy sounding song for death anniversary and a sad song for birth anniversary. Then just as I was to start writing the post, I thought of the film Aas Paas (1980) and found that the film’s following 3 songs only are posted:

Song Date of post
Tum jo chale gaye to hogi badi kharaabi 31 March 2009
Hamko bhi gham ne maara 6 December 2013
Shahar mein charcha hai 31 March 2019

This leaves the last film song recorded by Rafi sahab, not posted. So, I decided that it is time for this one to feature on this 42nd anniversary. This is a four liner snippet(Qata’a), but the sheer significance and the world of meanings and emotions expressed in the words by Anand Bakshi, compositions by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and the melodiously emotive voice of Rafi Sahab, makes this a classic on its own. He gives his all and more to these four lines in his own fashion, as only he could.

A trivia about the film, related to Rafi sahab:

• Director J. Om Prakash dedicated this film to singer Mohammed Rafi. The dedication in the film’s opening credits read “I dedicate this film to Mohd. Rafi, a great friend, a great human being and a great singer. He sang the last song of his life for this film. His loving memory will live forever with his songs.”.

“Aas Paas” was only one of the spates of films, in which Rafi sahab’s songs were there and some where no songs were there, which were dedicated to him. As per Wikipedia page, after his death, numerous Hindi movies were dedicated to Rafi, including: Allah Rakha, Mard, Coolie, Desh-Premee, Naseeb, Aas-Paas and Heeralal-Pannalal.

The major hit films of 1980, Qurbani (1980), Dostana (1980), Karz (1980), The Burning Train (1980), Abdullah (1980), Shaan (1980), Aasha (1980), Aap To Aise Na The (1980), Naseeb (1981) and Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai (1981) had Rafi songs.

I have heard Pyarelal of Laxmikant Pyarelal duo, talk of this song’s recording in various interviews and TV shows. Rafi sahab had recorded the duet “Shehar mein charcha hai’ for the film and was about to leave the recording studio. Laxmikant Pyarelal suddenly remembered that this snippet to play at the end of the film is also to be recorded. They requested him to record it too, and as usual Rafi Sahab had no qualms in doing as requested. Another version of the same day’s events says that, after recording the snippet, Rafi sahab was leaving, and uncharacteristically, he asked Laxmikant Pyarelal, “Achha to main chalun?”. The duo was perplexed, as Rafi sahab never asked for permission in this way. A few days later the end came on the night of 31st July.

This was the way it was meant to happen, was written in destiny. Fitting too in a way, that Rafi sahab’s last song should be with a team with whom he sang highest no. of songs. As a swan song, this song has left an indelible mark on the memories of our generation and for generations to come.

One cannot help but wonder, where would we be, how incomplete we would have been without this eternal voice, the unabashed ‘aashique’ for romantic songs, the qawwal who could call himself ‘Mansoor’ and also ‘Akbar Ilahbadi’ , who routinely would switch to 4 different voices while singing for 4 bit actors, in the same breath. The one, who was called the God’s voice and the one who could effortlessly emote, while singing any type of song in any meter and at any pitch.

The voice of carefree Dev Anand, the generous Sunil Dutt, the mischief of Shammi Kapoor, the majnooniyat of Rishi Kapoor, the rustic suaveness of Dilip Kumar, the ‘jin’ness of Mehmood, the tipsy Johnny walker, the earnest tragedy of Guru Dutt, the seriousness of Bharat Bhooshan, the cut n dried Rajendra Kumar, the aristocrat Raj Kumar, the brash Jeetendra, the chocolaty Navin Nischal and Sanjay Khan, and the crispy wit of Shashi Kapoor, the unevenness of Rajesh Khanna and the heady rise of Amitabh Bachchan.

Did we really get to capture 100 shades of rainbow colours and still complaining……ungrateful? Having witnessed a pinnacle of human civilization, a miraculous creation of God Almighty, I am forever thankful and grateful, for being born in the Rafi era and not before.

Memories of visit to London in September 2021

This post has been a long time in arriving actually.  We went to UK not as tourist, but to see family, mainly the daughter of the family and the new grand-daughter.  We came back to Mumbai in October’21.  Lot of water has flown down the bridge since then and the grand daughter is growing by leaps and bounds since we were with her, by the grace of Almighty.

Upon returning, I found myself under pressure to find a song good enough, to write a post covering the visit.  I looked, searched and watched, found many songs, newer ones mainly filmed in the UK, and some also showing locations of the London city.  It has been a favorite location for Hindi film picturization of film makers since the 60’s, i.e. when the trend of filming on location really started in the industry. Unfortunately, I was less than satisfied with the newer songs, and characteristically, was reluctant to post a new song, which had song/dance, band/bajaa/baraat routine. The songs were quite good in their own genre, I might yet post at least one of them.

And all this while, Avinash ji has been doing a series of the songs of 70’s decade and his posts appear regularly. Now Avinash ji has also acquired a new degree, I have deduced from the Peevisie’s Mom’s post.  Congratulations to the happy parents and best wishes for the daughter and the son-in-law.

One lucky day, while browsing the YouTube, I found this Rafi-Asha duet from the film ‘Professor Pyarelal’ (1981).  It is a happy sounding romantic song and a much heard on the radio, which makes it a dear familiar friend, in my opinion.  The song is filmed in London, mostly around the city center area, around Thames River, Westminster Abbey, the London Clock Tower etc.  The famous London Tower Bridge is also visible in all its centuries old splendor.

Centuries old splendor is the term I was looking for to describe the architectural beauty of London city and its many monuments.  It is evident that it is one of the oldest surviving cities of the world.  And it has managed to maintain its beauty and its instinct for survival, adaptability to the modern times and modern architectural and infrastructure requirements can only be applauded and wondered at.

My search for a suitable song for this post ended the day I saw this song on YouTube.  But the actual writing kept getting deferred.  I thought this was a late 70’s song, and was apprehensive that Avinash ji or someone else may post this song and I will lose the opportunity to write this post.  Now I find that this movie is from 1981.  But the songs were released and popular for some years before the movie eventually released after production delays.

Getting back to the brief about our visit. As soon as we arrived in UK, various scheduling and planning for visits to different places were underway.  My uncle, our host, insisted upon a visit to London city.  The planning for the London city was so short, due to the leave constraints of my son-in-law, that I was on the verge of postponing it to the next visit.  But the window of opportunity, and my son’s contention that everybody is going to ask, “hey you went to England and didn’t see London!”, decided in favor of the visit, so it happened.

London and some other landmark locations of England are a part of the consciousness. Just as we exist, these buildings – man made creations – also exist, and are famous for the events, known as historical turning points. Unlike other major cities of the modern world, London has seen wars too and has been destroyed and built again many times over, from what ever history I have read about it. England, on the whole has had a most violent history, in the medieval and pre-medieval eras. The fault lines between the Welsh, Scots, Irish and Brits, is evident even today in the various ruins and forts, and castles.  But they did learn their lesson that divided they fall, decided to unite at some given point in history to conquer the world.  I think it was the threat of the Romans that eventually united the British Isles. The glue could only have been an ideology of self-interest, binding the factions despite bitter animosity and gruesome wars behind them. Maybe the Protestant church had something to do with it, so Britain rose to great heights as a dominant civilization in the world and they were motivated enough to write and re-write the worlds history, literally and figuratively.  British historians are also a notorious breed.  Their language, is the dominant language in the world for centuries now.  The rise of the British Empire took centuries to happen, where as the fall was swift in the 19th and 20th century.  But the cultural and linguistic dominance continues to remain on top now, and for the foreseeable future too in the 21st century.  Willingness to adapt to other cultures and language habits is said to be a major factor in the success of the English language.   Historically speaking, the Roman empire was greater and more successful in the world, before the new found land of Americas.  But the impact is all but lost in today’s world.  The geopolitical scenario keeps changing with time and passing of centuries. These changes happen faster now in a matter of decades.  There are catalysts recognizable and visible to these power shifts. This is a very heavy and deep topic, so better to leave it here.

Yes, I had to chalk out a fool proof plan and schedule, wherein a few places I wanted to visit, were not missed.  Lords cricket ground and Thames River cruise were two things I was not willing to miss.  So we worked around this, to do the Lords tour, city ride in the red bus, short cruise of Thames river, Madame Tussaud’s, Harrods, a long walk inside the Hyde Park, especially where equestrian clubs are situated, visit to Science Museum and Natural History Museum (free entry), Bakers Street and Sherlock Holmes Museum, etc.  We gave a miss to Tower of London and Buckingham Palace tours, as they were more time consuming and also expensive. The London Eye is also a popular choice, which we could not take.  Other tourist locations in UK also have a giant wheel rides, as an attraction. The Giant wheel is a common feature in other places, like Dubai, Sydney, etc. I am wondering why we don’t have a thing like this in Mumbai.

We were based in Manchester, so could visit the nearby areas too like Lake District, North Wales, Blackpool, Lancaster, Chester, Preston etc. We passed through Oxford too on our way back from London. When we had arrived in UK, everyone told us the weather is good for only 2-3 days, so enjoy as much as you can, as it is really foul from September onward.  But luckily the weather held for the entire period of our stay, and we had rains to enjoy only in North Wales and for an hour or two in London, while we were riding the red bus and we had to cross the Bridge near Westminster on foot as we missed the stop for the Westminster Pier.  A part of the song I am presenting is filmed on the same bridge, where Zeenat Aman is standing in the middle of the road and crosses to join Dharmendra on the curb. The famous Tower Bridge is now painted in azure blue. I find that the Bridge has been painted blue since 1977, but in the song, it is not looking blue, so the song was filmed before 1977, it would seem.

Some trivia about the film:

This film took so long to complete – five years – and its plot was so convoluted that after director Brij had finished shooting it, nobody could figure out how to put the film together. The producers had then called in Hrishikesh Mukherjee to edit and salvage the film. He was credited prominently in the film’s posters and publicity material.

Astonishingly, no part of the city which is showcased as the beautiful attractions, looks old or dilapidated. All of them look freshly painted and well maintained, except for the bridges on the Thames River and the Westminster Abbey, which is the family church of the British Royals. London is best enjoyed on foot, I was told and I agree. After covering a few miles on foot, in and around Exhibition Street, Marylebone, Kensington, Hyde Park, we can be surprised and find the unexpected. In fact, the most parts of UK are best enjoyed on foot, which is the common consensus. Walking trails are taken as granted in different parts of UK.

I am told that the whole of UK is connected through rivers and canals and one can go from anywhere to anywhere on a boat. I was mentally prepared to be impressed by all that I was going to see in this visit, but was more than impressed and wish to do more trips which include visits to the remaining places in England, Scotland and Wales.

We took a pre-booked guided tour of the Lord’s cricket ground at the MCC.  Seeing the many Indian in the group taking the tour, the guide asked us “Where is Sachin Tendulkar’s home?”.  The common answer was the obvious – Mumbai.  But the guide insisted that “No. Sachin’s home is right here in Marylebone.” No surprises there too, for the evidence is everywhere in London especially, that who can afford to, would prefer to stay in London. On the other hand, Sachin Tendulkar was here in Mumbai in February 2022, as we all saw him attending the funeral of Lata Mangeshkar.  Incidentally, I could not find Sachin Tendulkar’s name in the list of Test centurions at the Lords. Extensive lists are put up inside the Pavilion, of all centurions and also 5+ wicket takers in an innings.  The guide was in full form and regaled us with a story about the ‘death row’ in the viewers gallery or members gallery.  There are two such galleries, one for the home team and one for the away team. As both India and West Indies are ‘away teams’, I guess the away team gallery was the one, where Kapil Dev stood with the Prudential Cup trophy after his team’s victory in 1983 World Cup. The original Prudential Cup is still there in the small Museum for memorabilia, related to the MCC.

I have read and heard at various places, that London was the favourite place in the world for Rafi Sahab also. He is said to have been fond of the city, as his sons are settled there.

I can go on remembering things and my impressions of the visit, but the post is got to end somewhere. The song being presented in this post is filmed in London on Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman. Rafi Sahab and Asha Bhonsle are giving playback to them in the song written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This duet is typical of the Kalyanji-Anandji style of duet composition, sounding very similar to the Rafi-Asha duet from ‘Qurbani’. We the radio fans, listened to the song in late 70’s, loved and liked it, but had all but forgotten it. Even the links on YouTube are few, with only one video available.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film ‘The Burning Train -1980’.

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was the 275th movie to be introduced on the blog on the 143rd day of the blog (on 8 december 2008) . Today the number of movies launched on the blog has reached 4562 on 12 January 2022. These numbers give us some idea of the long journey of the movie ‘The Burning Train” on the blog. 😊

The first song from this movie was posted on 08.12.2008. Today, 4784 days later(on 12.01.2022) we are posting the final song from this movie. So, “The Burning Train-1980” finally arrives at its destination YIPPEE station on the blog today. It becomes the 1304th movie to get YIPPEED in the blog.

“The Burning Train-1980” was one of the most ambitious movies from the Chopras’ (B.R. Chopra Films). It had a long list of star-artists performing in it.
I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my parents when I was a child. Later, as I grew, I kept reading about this movie and kept listening to its songs as I liked them all. I think this movie should be ‘one of the most discussed or hyped but less successful commercially movie ’ of its time.

I loved to watch this movie whenever it was played on Cable TV or TV channels. It must have been liked by many like me and may be many in the new generations in eighties, nineties and more. This movie has good songs written by Sahir and composed by R.D. Burman. Especially its qawwali ‘pal do pal ka saath hamaara’ is liked even today.

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was directed by Ravi Chopra for B.R. Films, Bombay. It was produced by B.R. Chopra. Ravi Chopra also wrote the story of this movie.

It had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi, Neetu Singh, Danny, Vinod Mehra, Jeetendra, Navin Nischol, Simi, Asha Sachdev, Padmini Kapila, Romesh Sharma, Payal, Asrani, Ranjeet, Iftekhar, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Rajendra Nath, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Padma Khanna, Komila Virk, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherji, Paintal, Dinesh Thakur, Yunus Parvez, Shammi, Ravindra Kapoor, T.P. Jain, Jankidas, Jagdish Raj, Gufi, Sudha Shivpuri, M. Rajan, Uma Dhawan, Mac Mohan, Anand Balraj, Prem Bedi, Master Bittoo, Baby Khushboo, Junior Danny, Master Romy, Master Salim and others.

Madan Puri, Chandrashekhar, Satyen Kappu and Urmila Bhatt make a guest appearance in this movie.
Its screenplay and dialogues were written by Kamleshwar ji. Pran Mehra was the chief editor for this movie and S.B. Mane and R.P. Bapat assisted him. This movie was passed by Censor Board 20.03.1980.

This movie had six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by R.D. Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Padmini Kolhapure and Sushma Shreshtha and Usha Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier. Here are the details of all the six songs of this movie.

Hullo Atuldom

“Azaad” (1978) made its debut on the blog in 2014 with this song. The post contains details of the movie and its synopsis.

After four years, on the occasion of Dharam Paaji’s birthday I had sent this song on the blog. Therein I have stated how I came to appreciate Dharmendra the actor, the songs of his which I love etc.

I was looking for possible songs to post for Dharam Paaji’s 86th birthday. I went through all the Dharmendra movies that are on the blog; movies with one or two songs left to attain YYIIPPEEEEhood. Then I looked for popular movies of the ’80s, ’90s and later which featured our favourite actor/ star. I found numerous possible songs but decided to go back to “Azaad”. That is story of how this song find a place on the blog today.

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, written by Anand Bakshi and tuned by RDB. We see our Dharam Paaji on a journey on Horseback in search of greener pastures, away from his hometown after he promises his bhabhi that he will mend his ways and not get into unnecessary squabbles.

Wishing a very Happy Birthday to our dearest Veeru a.k.a Dharam Paaji. May he be healthy witty and happy with all his family and close people.

Hullo Atuldom

I am super charged as I sit to write this post. I don’t know how to express my SURPRISE that the songs of this movie are yet to appear on the blog. I made a quick call to Atulji to confirm that this movie has not yet made its debut. I was making sure that it doesn’t appear under any other spelling. Atulji said that he is aware that it is yet to debut, so let us have it.

This 1980 release is a fantasy film based on a story from the Arabian Nights. Something that every child would have grown up reading, hence I am refraining from giving the story/ synopsis. I shall just say that this film had a generous dose of romance and romantic songs along with good quality action scenes. The film was an Indo-Soviet joint venture with the Uzbek director Latif Faiziyev and Indian director Umesh Mehra directing a set of Bollywood stars/actors and some Russian, Caucasian and Central Asian actors. Anand Bakshi and RD Burman were in charge of the songs that are popular till today and only three singers were used- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

Before I present the song I would like to go into flashback with this song. That was to wish the actor Prem Chopra on his birthday. In there I had mentioned how his pairing with Rajesh Khanna was sure formula for success in the early 70s- he appeared in 19 movies as a co-actor of Rajesh Khanna.

Another actor with whom he was acceptable to the audiences was Dharmendra with whom he has appeared in around 30 films.

There are other actors with whom he has been regularly appreciated with and has done sizeable number of films – like 16 with Manoj Kumar, 24 with Amitabh Bachchan. I would like to know the count of films that Prem Chopra appeared, with respect to other prominent actors like Dev Anand, Jeetendra, Feroz Khan, Sunil Dutt, Rishi Kapoor etc. I know for sure that he has acted in 4 movies with his idol Dilip Kumar.

In my post of the 23rd September 2018, I had also mentioned how there were numerous songs where the heroines will sing love songs with the characters played by Chopra in order to get a response from the hero. Today’s song is similar to Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972) with a minor difference. Here we have the heroine dancing to the tunes of the hero. The ultimate aim being to rescue the girl from her predicament and an unwanted marriage with the wily Shamsher (Prem Chopra). Here the hero Alibaba (Dharmendra) has come as a Jadugar and has promised Shamsher that he will do some ‘mumbo-jumbo’ and get Marjina (Hema Malini) agree to his marriage proposal. For starters, the Jadugar gets Shamsher to dance and Marjina stands like a statue. But when she sees her lost ‘paayal’ (called ‘ghungroo’ in the song) she recognizes the Jadugar and joins him in the song-n-dance routine.

I have read in one of Prem Chopra’s interviews in the past, that he is scared of snakes and that he was petrified to shoot this song as the last stanza has a snake appearing out of nowhere. So possibly the priceless expression that he has given was not acting.

Prem Chopra has been a great supporting actor for almost 61 years. He began his career with a Punjabi film in 1960, followed by brief roles in ‘Hum Hindustani’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ etc. ‘Shaheed’ along side Manoj Kumar can be said to be his breakthrough film. ‘Upkaar’ and ‘Do Raaste’ also need to be mentioned as they presented him with different types of characters in spite of being Gray-shaded.It is well-known that he is connected to the Kapoor Khandaan as his wife and Raj Kapoor’s wife were sisters so that also makes him a brother-in-law to Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath and Narendra Nath.
Here is wishing this Tall and Handsome actor on his 86th birthday good health and lots of happiness.

Presenting ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’ (1980) on the blog, with this song, which I have written without hearing the video. After writing the lyrics I heard the song and found one error in what I had noted. I found that in all these years (41 years) I was singing this one line bas hadd kar di o bedardi wrong.

1 song sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1987 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 20 songs from movies of 1987 that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 1 movie of 1987 (“Diljala”) has been covered in the blog. So 20 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 11 movies of 1987 are still available for discussion in the blog.

Alphabetically “Aag hi Aag”(1987) is the first movie of 1987 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

Blog Day :

4720 Post No. : 16430

Welcome all to this post. We are discussing movies who made their debuts on the blog in its initial days and then they remain with ‘only one song posted’ on the blog for a long time or specifically more than ten years of gap.  Under this condition the today’s movie is ‘Sharaafat’ (1970)’.

This movie made its debut on the blog with its only known song (I think so) ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’ on 02.11.2008. So, today after a gap of 4614 days (including 20.06.2021) or twelve years, seven months, and nine days we are going to listen the second song from this movie.

‘Sharaafat’ was directed by Asit Sen for ‘Seven Arts Pictures, Bombay’. It had Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Soniya Sahni, Jagdeep, Abhi Bhattacharya, Kanhaiyalal, Sapru, Shabnam, Zebunnisa, Roopesh Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Poornima, Paro Devi, Jankidas, Brahm Bharadwaj, Chandrima Bhaduri, Kundan, Kesho Rana, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Tun Tun, Raj Kishore, Ajay Kashmiri, Prakash Mishra, Machhar, Dilip Dutt, Ratan Gaurang, Wajid Khan, Ravikant, Shefali, Bilkis, Jagdish Bhalla and many others.

This movie had six songs which are all female solo songs, five sung by Lata Mangeshkar and one solo by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics for all songs of this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Following is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer
01 Mera rastaa rok rahe hain ye parbat anjaane … Lata Mangeshkar
02 Duniya ne sun li hai chhupke apni prem kahaani … Lata Mangeshkar
03 Pehle naa dekha jaise kisi ne, aise mujhe aaj dekha Lata Mangeshkar
04 Jeewandaata jagat pitaa tum Lata Mangeshkar
05 Sharaafat chhod di maine Lata Mangeshkar
06 Main manaaun bhalaa kis tarah aapko Asha Bhonsle

I do not remember to have watched this movie but I was always aware of its most popular song ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’. And for today’s post when I was looking for the other songs from this movie, I thought I will listen all and then decide. I listen to the today’s song and found it somewhat familiar, so I am presenting this song today.

The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and the gorgeous looking Hema Malini has lip synced it on screen. We can also see Dharmendra in his characteristic charming style of those years.

I hope you will also like this today’s song as I liked … it is something special 😊

Song – Mera Rasta Rok Rahe Hain Ye Parbat Anjaane (Sharafat) (1970) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Lakshmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

mera rasta rok rahe hain
ye parbat anjaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane

mera rasta rok rahe hain
ye parbat anjaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

parde mein jaise koi baat hai
jaane ujaala hai ke raat hai ae
parde mein jaise koi baat hai
jaane ujaala hai ke raat hai
chanchal man kehta hai chal chal
darr na chhode aanchal
o phoolon ki galiyaan hai yaa
kaanton ke veeraane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane ae

paaon mein gham ki zanjeer hai
man mein khushi ki tasveer hai
paaon mein gham ki zanjeer hai
man mein khushi ki tasveer hai
aashaa mujhko aage kheenche
aur niraasha pichhe ae ae
kis ki maanoon
aur kiski na maanoon
dil deewaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane ae
main is paar khadi ye sochoon
kya us paar hai jaane ae

मेरा रस्ता रोक रहे हैं
ये परबत अनजाने ए
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने

मेरा रस्ता रोक रहे हैं
ये परबत अनजाने ए
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने

आ आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ

परदे में जैसे कोई बात है
जाने उजाला है के रात है ए
परदे में जैसे कोई बात है
जाने उजाला है के रात है
चंचल मन कहता है चल चल
डर ना छोड़े आँचल
ओ फूलों कि गलियाँ है या
काँटों के वीराने ए
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने

पाँवो में ग़म कि ज़ंजीर है
मन में ख़ुशी कि तस्वीर है
पाँवो में ग़म कि ज़ंजीर है
मन में ख़ुशी कि तस्वीर है
आशा मुझको आगे खींचे
और निराशा पीछे ए ए
किसकी मानूं
और किसकी ना मानूं
दिल दीवाने ए
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने
मैं इस पार खड़ी ये सोचूँ
क्या उस पार है जाने
