Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 15
————————————————

12th March, ten years ago. Six songs posted, and six films represented that day.  The films are ‘President’ (1937), ‘Paarasmani’ (1963), ‘Mera Gaaon Mera Desh’ (1971), ‘Elaan’ (1971), ‘Anjaana’ (1969), and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’ (1971). On that day, the 1971 film ‘Elaan’ made its debut on our blog with the song “Aap Ki Rai Mere Baare Mein”.

Of the six films appearing that day, four have already been yippeee’d.  Given the set of popular and familiar songs, the films ‘Paarasmani’, ‘Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’ and ‘Anjaana’ have all their songs posted. ‘President’ – the 1937 film featuring KL Saigal and Kanan Devi, still has some songs pending. However today, I pick up the other pending film from that date – ‘Elaan’ of 1971.

The film has 5 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Music is by Shankar Jaikishan.  Two of the songs are already showcased here. The interesting thing about this film is that out of the five songs, one is a solo by Lata ji, one is a solo by Asha ji, and the remaining three feature Sharda as the singer. Two of these three are solos, and one is a duet with Rafi Sb.  This choice of singers underscores the then prevailing rumors about Shankar’s fancy for Sharda, and Jaikishan’s displeasure about this state of affairs.

The duet song, and the song by Lata ji are already posted. Today I bring on board the song by Asha Bhosle. Lyrics for this song are written by Farooque Kaiser. The song is presented as a cabaret dance by Rekha. The setting seems to be the villain’s den. The audience for this performance are Vinod Mehra, sporting a French beard in an effort to disguise his identity, Madan Puri playing the role of the gangster boss, and Jankidas as a senior lieutenant of the boss. A few more junior henchmen are spread out around the room.

The provocative cabaret is presented by Rekha. Back then in 1971, this was just her third film that she was appearing in. Her first film ‘Anjaana Safar’, made ready for release in 1969, ran into some problems with the Censors, and its actual release was delayed by a decade. It was released in 1979 with a change in title – ‘Do Shikaari’. Rekha played the leading lady opposite to Biswajit. Then in 1970 came the film ‘Saawan Bhadon’, opposite to Navin Nischol, which is considered as her debut film. And them in 1971, she appears in this film opposite to Vinod Mehra.

The performance, the dress up – all is very enticing and provocative. Rekha appears to be attempting to emulate Helen as she attempts to entice Vinod Mehra, who is apparently a target of something sinister. The gangster boss is seen adding some drug to the drink for Vinod Mehra. And at the end of the song, we see Vinod falling down unconscious.

The song itself is less familiar, however not unheard. Enjoy the song, and Rekha’s performance – every inch a temptress.

Song – Aaj Tumhaare Kaan Mein Keh Doon Mere Dil Mein Kya Hai  (Elaan) (1971) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Farooque Kaiser, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon
mere dil mein kya hai

aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon
mere dil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega
is mehfil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon
mere dil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega
is mehfil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na

kaise sajan ho
khud mein magan ho
dhadke mera mann
ab to milan ho
kaise sajan ho
khud mein magan ho
dhadke mera mann
ab to milan ho
jaan sakey na mere dilbar
is paayal mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega
is mehfil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
oy hoye hoye hoye
ulajh gaye na

kaun bhala hai
kaun bura hai
aankhon pe teri parda pada hai
kaun bhala hai
kaun bura hai
aankhon pe teri parda pada hai
hanste hanste maar jo daale
us qaatil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega
is mehfil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
na
ulajh gaye na

aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon
mere dil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega
is mehfil mein kya hai
samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na

आज तुम्हारे कान में कह दूँ
मेरे दिल में क्या है

आज तुम्हारे कान में कह दूँ
मेरे दिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
उलझ गए ना
आगे चल के पता चलेगा
इस महफिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
उलझ गए ना
आज तुम्हारे कान में कह दूँ
मेरे दिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
ना
उलझ गए ना
आगे चल के पता चलेगा
इस महफिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
उलझ गए ना

कैसे सजन हो
खुद में मगन हो
धड़के मेरा मन
अब तो मिलन हो
कैसे सजन हो
खुद में मगन हो
धड़के मेरा मन
अब तो मिलन हो
जान सके ना मेरे दिलबर
इस पायल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
उलझ गए ना
आगे चल के पता चलेगा
इस महफिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
ओय होय होय होय
उलझ गए ना

कौन भला है
कौन बुरा है
आँखों पे तेरी परदा पड़ा है
कौन भला है
कौन बुरा है
आँखों पे तेरी परदा पड़ा है
हँसते हँसते मार जो डाले
उस क़ातिल में क्या है

आज तुम्हारे कान में कह दूँ
मेरे दिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
उलझ गए ना
आगे चल के पता चलेगा
इस महफिल में क्या है
समझ गए ना
उलझ गए ना

It was many years ago; as a child I saw the song “Dil Jalta Ha To Jalne De”(‘Pehli Nazar’, 1945) as one of the songs in a Chitrahaar program on Doordarshan. At that time, I had no idea about the actors present on the screen during this song. The image of Motilal that I would later remember and carry with me for a long time, would be the balding, and somewhat comical man from films like ‘Mr. Sampat’ (1952) and ‘Jaagte Raho’ (1956). And it was much later that I would become aware that the young man in this song, with a moustache and a head of full hair is none other than the same Motilal. However, on the first viewing of this song on TV, it was the charming face of the lady love, that enamored me, and the image of that open expression on her face, with expectation and waiting written on it, still remains with me as one the most endearing images of a lady actor on screen.
