“Khilaadi”(1968) was directed by Homi Wadia for Basant Pictures Bombay. This “social” movie had Nadia, Dilip Raj, Uma Bhende, Sujata, Sheikh, Suzie, Amarnath, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Vishwas Kunte, Uma Dutt, Dalpat, Habib etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Khilaadi”(1968) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Lala Sattar.

The song is picturised on Dilip Raj and Uma Bhende. Dilip Raj was son of P Jairaj. Uma Bhende, a leading Marathi movie actress, had famously lip synced the popular “Dosti”(1964) song “Gudiya hamse roothi rahogi” earlier.


Song-Pyaar koi kam kam kare (Khilaadi)(1968) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Lala Sattar

Lyrics

pyaar koi kam kam kare
haaye alla
dheer dhare ji zara dheer dhare
kaahe gori chham chham kare
haaye alla
bijli gire ji dil pe bijli gire

pyaar koi kam kam kare
kaahe gori chham chham kare

hove ruswa na meri jawaani
mujhpe itni karo meharbaani
dil hai haazir abhi pyaar kar lo
phir na aayegi rut ye suhaani

duhaai duhaai mere saajna
koi kya karega tera saamna
haaye pyaar koi kam kam kare
haaye allah
dheer dhare ji zara dheer dhare
kaahe gori chham chham kare
haaye alla
bijli gire ji dil pe bijli gire

pyaar koi kam kam kare
kaahe gori chham chham kare

tu jo chaahe to kismat bana loon
dil ki dhadkan mein tujhko chhupa loon

aisi nazron se dekho na balma
hosh apne main kaise sambhaaloon
nasha hai sanam ye mere pyaar ka
bharosa nahin hai tere pyaar ka
haaye kaahe gori chham chham kare
haaye allah
bijli gire ji dil pe bijli gire

pyaar koi kam kam kare
haaye alla
dheer dhare ji zara dheer dhare
kaahe gori chham chham kare
pyaar koi kam kam kare ae ae

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 83 # Remembering Feroz Khan#
—————————————————————————–——

Welcome all to this post of today, where, once again, I am taking you back to a song from the Seventies from a movie which is part of ‘nostalgia’ of my growing years.

In this blog we fondly discuss about ‘songs which bring back memories’. Many of my posts would fall into this ‘category’ as I have tried to share them with the memories of my childhood years and growing years thereafter.

During the ‘blog’s ten thousandth song –milestone’ I had written a post here and mentioned about few songs which for me bring back memories of my childhood and /or growing years.
At that time, I had listed many ‘prominent songs’ for me falling in ‘songs that brings back memories’ category. I had also noted that in future I may come with a second list of such songs which I get reminded time to time due to the connected memories of those years and they surface from vague and dormant memories.

Recently when I was going through this ‘first list’ of mine and noting down the songs which are yet to make it to the blog, I noticed that now very few songs from this list of mine are yet to be posted on the blog. One of these songs is the song being covered today.

And the reason for posting this song today is, it is picturised on actor Feroz Khan whom we fondly remember today on his tenth ‘Remembrance Day’.
(This song also has a female version which is picturised on actress Rekha).

Feroz Khan (25 September 1939 – 27 April 2009), born Zulfikar Ali Shah Khan, was born in Bangalore and he also breath his last in the city of Bangalore on 27th April 2009.

He came to Mumbai (Bombay then) and made his debut in Hindi movies with the movie ‘Didi’ in 1960. Initially he got smaller roles or roles in the second lead. After completing almost a decade in the Hindi Film Industry he ventured into production and direction with the movie ‘Apraadh-1972’.

Though I have not watched many of his movies, but whatever movies I had watched of him have left an indelible impression on my mind since my childhood.

And whenever the Hindi movies of the seventies will be discussed Feroz Khan’s name is going to be surely there. Because he has a special place carved for him in the midst of the so many actors of that decade and his ‘aura’ is something that cannot be forgotten by the ‘fans of the seventies’.

I never forgot the movie ‘Khotey Sikkey-1974’ which I must have watched with my elders earlier and later may be on TV. And for me it is this movie which I remembered most associated with his name. I had also shared a song from this movie when I joined this blog as a lyrics contributor.

Then I remember watching ‘Nagin-1976’, ‘Shankar Shambhu-1976’, ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine-1976’, ‘Kabeela-1976’ and ‘Khoon Aur Paani-1981’ which I clearly remember of watching with my brothers and cousins may be in vacations. I think we also watched ‘Kaala Sona-1975’ and ‘Chunaoti-1979-80’ later, but I don’t remember it now.

‘Qurbaani-1980’ was a big hit in those years and all family watched it together.

Later I watched ‘Safar-191’, ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan-1970’ on TV. ‘Dharmatma-1975’ with friends on VCR (during the VCR days).
In between these years, around 1986-87 I watched ‘Aarzoo-1965’ in theatres in its re-re-released in end eighties.

After that I watched ‘Yalgaar-1992’ and ‘Dayaawan-1988’ in parts (on TV).

I watched ‘Apradh-1972’ again in 2008-2009 by buying its VCD because it had one my favourite songs in it i.e. ‘tum miley pyaar se’.

However I am yet watch his ‘Upaasna-1967’ and ‘Mela-1971’ which I think I should watch sometime in the future.

I will not go into more details about him and thus I will come to the today’s song thanking Feroz Khan for all the entertainment and those lovely memories of his movies he has given to us. His ‘cow boy’ image and specially his ‘dialogue deliveries’ riding on a horse 🙂 are his special features that I am always reminded of with his ‘steering eyes’:) (or may be, because of his image in my mind I am thinking that he might have spent more time sitting on the Horse’s back going by nature of roles he played in the majority of the movies) 🙂

Today’s movie ‘Kabeela-1976’ was directed by Bolu Khosla for ‘Khosla Enterprises, Bombay’. It was a ‘costume drama’ movie. Bolu Khosla was also the producer of this movie.

It had Feroz Khan, Rekha, Kamini Kaushal, Imtiaz, Premnath, V. Gopal, Sudhir, Shyam Kumar, Manju Bansal, Dhoomal, Surendranath, Heeralal, Habib, Baby Soniya, Darshan, Sharad Saxena and others. Bindu and Trilok Kapoor make a Special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by A.K. Agarwal. Screenplay was written by Jayant Dharmadhikari. Akhtar Romani wrote the dialogues of this movie and editing was done by Waman Bhonsle.

This movie had four songs, including one multiple version song (which is being posted today). All its songs were written by Farooque Qaisar and composed to music by Kalyanji-Anandji. Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Mukesh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 20.10.1976.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie which since years has been in my memory and it is a ‘catchy’ composition too. This song is in two versions male and female and sung respectively by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

I could not find a separate video for the female version, but we have audio version for our listening pleasure. The female version is picturised on Rekha and male version is picturised on Feroz Khan and who we can see performing in his ‘dynamic-dashing’:) style on this song.

By the way this song ranked at number twenty-five in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1977’.
With this song ‘Kabeela-1976 (or Qabeela-1976’) makes a debut on the blog !!

(I also had the opportunity to introduce ‘Shankar -Shambhu-1976’ on the blog. ‘Naagin-1976’ – I had already shared a song.
And as noted earlier I think this year ‘1976’ had the most impact on my mind relating to songs and movies of that year when I was around 8 years old 🙂 )

Let us enjoy today’s song now.

Blog Day : 3889 Post No. : 14921

———————————————–
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

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

samajh gaye na
oy hoye hoye hoye

kaun bhala 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

samajh gaye na
na
ulajh gaye na

aaj tumhaare kaan mein keh doon

samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na
aage chal ke pata chalega

samajh gaye na
ulajh gaye na

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 27
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

’ – महफिल में तेरे हुस्न का दीवाना कौन है ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

हम इंतज़ार करेंगे ॰ ॰ ॰ 

Knowing it is futile – no one returns from where you have gone. But still, the heart knows no other emotion. And so we will wait, till whenever we can.

– – – –

This duet song from the 1962 film ‘Rooplekha’ is a real treat. It is vintage Rafi, sung with that signature ‘खुमारी’ and ‘मस्ती’, the inimitable flavors of sounds that only Rafi Sb could render. When I came across this song while searching for a duet of Rafi Sb starting with ‘म’, I was quite excited. The emotion that ran through my mind was the oft represented thought – how come this song is not yet on the blog. Quite a popular favorite from the radio listening days, it is a wonder that this gem has kept away from our blog. And not that this film is new here – already two songs of this film are showcased here. Both solos, one is a wonderful treat from Suman Kalyanpur – “Tu Ne Chura Li Mere Maathe Ki Bindiya” and a bhajan in the voice of Rafi Sb – “Bahjan Bina Baawre”.

Checking out the Geet Kosh, we find that three films with this same title have been released – in 1934, 1939 and 1962. This 1962 film is produced under the banner of Prithvi Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Mohammed Hussain. The six songs in this film are all written by Farooque Kaiser. And the wonderful compositions are from the mind of Nashaad. Regulars will recall that Nashaad is the pseudonym for Shaukat Ali, aka Shaukat Hussain Dehlavi. His first break in Hindi films as a music director was with the film ‘Naghma’ of 1953. And this break came about in very interesting circumstances. Nakshab Jarchvi, the producer director of this film was trying to engage Naushad Sb as the music director for his film. Certain circumstances prevailed and Naushad Sb declined the offer. Somewhat piqued by this response, Nakshab Sb brought in Shaukat Ali, who was working as assistant music director till then, and gave him charge of the music department for his film. And he also suggested to use the pseudonym ‘Nashaad’, in a likely riposte to Naushad Sb’s refusal.

Coming to the star cast of this film, the Geet Kosh lists the following actors Mahipal, Vijaya Chaudhary, Sundar, Raj Adeeb, Shaam Kumar, Krishna Kumari, Amar, Jeevankala, Madhumati, Rafiq, Munshi Munakka, Mohammad Ali, Ghani, Arvind Kumar, Dhondu, Balram, Nazeer Kashmiri, Shri Bhagwan, Pandey Ji, Ravikant, Shamu, Kathana, and Sujata.

On screen, this song is presented as a mujra dance song – a peculiar one – in that the ‘saazinda’ (musician) accompanying the dancer is leading the singing. We see Mahipal playing the sitar and Vijaya Chaudhry doing the dance sequence. There are two other characters in this scenario. One lady, who I guess is Krishna Kumari, and a gentleman I am not able to place a name to the face. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm / correct / add the names for these two artists.

The duet is an exchange of queries and responses between the two artists. Very interesting words, and a very dear composition. The renditions, of course, Rafi Sb and Suman Kalyanpur – one of their best duets in my opinion. Listen and enjoy.

ke tum se qareeb hain

khul jaaye raaz e dil to
qayaamat na ho kahin
darte hain tum ko hum se

khul jaaye ye bhi raaz ke

khul jaaye ye bhi raaz ke deewaana kaun hai
deewaana ho ji

ye shamma jaanti hai parwaana kaun hai
mehfil mein tere husn ka deewaana kaun hai

“Sipahsaalaar”(1956) was produced by F C Mehra and directed by Mohammad Hussain for Eagle Films, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Nadira, Shyam Kumar, Randheer, Kamal Mehra, S Nazeer, Samson, Kumkum, Helen, Cuckkoo, Jagdeesh Kamal, Amrit Rana, Rafiq, Ravikant, Kamal Mohan, Rajan Kapoor, Nazeer Kashmiri, Uma Dutt, Balaram, Sattar, Dhondhu, Habeeb etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it according to HFGK. But it seems that the sixth song (whose record number in not known) has the same lyrics and singers as fifth song, so these songs can be considered as one and the same. So effectively the movie had five songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Sipahsaalaar”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Muusic is composed by Iqbal.

Only the audio of this song is available. The song sounds like a dance song. Going by the sounds of it, this song could have been picturised on Cuckkoo, Kumkum or Helen. I request our kowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this lilting dance song.


Song-Aji o jee tumhen dekh jiya lahraaye (Sipahsalaar)(1956) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Iqbal

Lyrics

aji oh ji

aji oh ji
tumhen dekh jiya lahraaye
zara apni nazar kabhi kar lo udhar
mera ang ang sharmaaye
aji oh ji
tumhen dekh jiya lahraaye
zara apni nazar kabhi kar lo udhar
mera ang ang sharmaaye
aji oh ji

tujhe meri kasam zara sun to balam
tujhe meri kasam zara sun to balam
tera pyaar kare mere dil pe sitam
mere dil pe sitam
mujhe roz roz tadpaaye
aji oh ji
tumhe dekh jiya lahraaye
zara apni nazar kabhi kar lo udhar
mera ang ang sharmaaye
aji oh ji

chup chaap rahoon
kuchh bhi na kahoon
chup chaap raoon
kuchh bhi na kahoon
tera dard piya kab tak main sahoon
kab tak mai sahoon
ye bhed aaj khul jaaye

aji oh ji
tumhe dekh jiya lahraaye
zara apni nazar kabhi kar lo udhar
mera ang ang sharmaaye
aji oh ji

main gaaun yahaan
tum jhoomo wahaan
main gaaun yahaan
tum jhoomo wahaan
wo baat karo bekaar jahaan

hamen dekh dekh jal jaaye

Lullaby was a much loved genre of songs in HFM during its golden era. Majority of lullabies are naturally sung by female singers and picturised on females playing mother to their young ones. The blog has 107 lullabies sung by 18 female singers (and a few male singers as well). Lata Mangeshkar dominates this genre. She has lent her voice in as many as 43 lullabies. Asha Bhonsle is a distant second with 13 lullabies. No other singer is in double figures and that includes legendary female singers like Khursheed Bano, Amirbai Karnataki, Rajkumari, Suraiyya, Geeta Dutt, Suman Kalyanpur etc.

Here is another lullaby song from HFM. This song is from “Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964).

“Aandhi Aur Toofaan”(1964) was directed by Mohammad Hussain for Kamran Films, Bombay. This “stunt” movie had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Kamran, Jeewan, Ratanmala, Amar, Bhagwan, Anjum, Leela, Uma Dutt, Habeeb, Laxmi Chhaaya, Kamal Mohan, Munshi Munaqqa, Qamar, Fajlu, Mustafa, Khursheed, Anand, Arvind Kumar, Balram, Prem, Bihari, Moolchand, Sabir, Maula, Azam, Dawood, Ismail, Honey Irani, Saleem, Hercules etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

This lullaby song is sung by Mubarak Begam. It is the first lullaby song sung by her to appear in the blog. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

The picturisation shows a mother singing this lullaby to her twin kids. I am unable to identify the lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

This movie is from 1964 and I cannot help feel that the kids seen in the picturisation must have been in the same age group as a few of our regulars including myself. 🙂

There have been three Hindi movies titled “Roop Lekha”. They were released in 1934, 1949 and 1962.

“Roop Lekha”(1962) was produced by N N Sippy and directed by Mohammad Hussain for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. Incidentally, “Roop Lekha”(1949) too was directed by Mohammad Hussain.

“Roop Lekha”(1962) had Mahipal and Vijaya Chaudhary in lead roles with Sundar, Raj Adeeb, Shaam Kumar, Krishna Kumari, Amar, Jeewan Kala, Madhumati, Rafiq, Munshi Munaqqa, Mohammad Ali, Ghani, Arvind Kumar, Dondu, Balram, Nazeer Kashmiri etc also figuring in it.

There were six songs in the movie. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Roop Lekha”(1962) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Farooque Kaiser is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naashaad.

The song is picturised as a Raaj darbaar dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer as well as the other actors visible in the picturisation.


Song-Toone churaa li mere maathe ki bindiya (Roop Lekha)(1962) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Farooque Kaiser, MD-Naashaad

Lyrics

toone churaa li mere maathe ki bindiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
toone chura li mere maathe ki bindiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
chor kahoon main tujhe
ya kahoon chhaliya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya

duniya ne tod diya tod diya
duniya ne tod diya
pyaara pyaara sapna
samjhe na koi mere
dil ka tadapna
phirti hoon maari maari
saari nagariya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya

kismat ne chhod diya o chhod diya
o ji mujhe chhod diya
kismat ne chhod diya manzil pe aake
pahunche hain dar pe tere sab kuchh lutaa ke
kisko khabar thhi aise badlegi duniya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
toone chura li mere maathe ki bindiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya

kaagaz ki naav teri
naav teri
kaagaz ki naav teri
kab tak chalegi
takra ke lahron se doob rahegi
jaayegi shyaam(?) teri beech bajariya
beimaan rasiya beimaan rasiya
beiman rasiya o beimaan rasiya
toone churaa li mere maathe ki bindiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya
beimaan rasiya o beimaan rasiya

This song is the 14300th song post in the blog.

(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song

Part II-Chaand Pardesi

If one thinks that posting “blog century” songs is quite a straight forward matter then think again. Though we have posted as many as 142 blog century posts, hardly any of them were easy picks. I had to think hard and long before finding songs befitting the occasion.

As the number of centuries mounted, we began to combine those blog centuries with other special occasions, viz. artist century, contributor century, artist anniversaries etc.

The post under discussion marks the 143rd century for the blog. In other words, it is the song post number 14300 for the blog.

I just mentioned that selecting “blog century” songs is not a trivial matter. Let me describe the thought process/ behind the scene activities that took place before I settled on this particular song as the “blog century” song.

First thing first. I had made up my mind that I would author this post. The reason was simple. I realised that our other contributors, including the usual century author Sudhir Jee were hard pressed for time these days. So I decided that I needed to write this post.

Many of our special posts including century posts have tended to appear towards the midnight, which may be prime time for TV but not for the blog. Blog prime time is day time on a weekday, so I made up my plan that this article should appear by morning today (24 april 2018) which happens to be tuesday.

When the day began, the tally of posts stood at 14297, so it meant that three posts needed to be posted, including two posts prior to the century post.

Did I have any song in mind for the “blog century” post ?

Yes, I had. It was a rare song, and quite a remarkable song. I had discovered this song a few months ago and I had noted down its lyrics as well. It was a long song and noting down the lyrics took a good amount of time. I had earmarked this song as a special song, to be covered as a “blog century” post or any such occasion.

This song had another qualification. I had begun my series of Rafi songs called (Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song. I had begun this series by aiming to cover those music directors who composed just one song with Rafi. I had decided that these songs would be special occasion songs in the blog. The first (and so far only) song in the series was composed by Arun Raghavan. I had combined this song to mark several special occasions, viz. that song was the 2800th Rafi song in the blog and the movie, which got introduced in the blog with the song was the 3800th movie covered in the blog.

My planned song that I had earmarked also fitted the same bill. It was also the only Rafi song composed by that music director.

With time, I realised that this song could be combined to mark another extremely rare occasion which few regulars may be able to guess. It could become the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog !

So I had silently made sure that the tally of Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had gradually inched upto the 499 mark in the blog. 🙂

So, when the time arrived to post the 14300th song article, I had every thing covered. Or that is what I thought.

When I began to search for this song in my hard disk, I was unable to locate it. I had noted down its lyrics spending several hours. I was sure it was there somewhere but where ? I managed to locate the video in my hard disk but not the lyrics.

OK, I will have to note the lyrics again, I thought.

When I began to listen to the song, I received another jolt. This song that I was remembering as a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet had another voice in it. So my carefully laid plans got thrown out of the window immediately.

What to do now ? Now I needed to search for songs composed by other composers who worked with Rafi in just one song. This list is fortunately very much there in my excel sheet, and show I immediately began to search for Rafi songs composed by these one Rafi song composers.

The songs that I located were just solo Rafi songs, and they somehow did not sound worthy of being the blog century song. Nevertheless, one such Rafi song, after repeated listening began to grow upon me and I decided that this song was going to be the song for the occasion. So I noted down the lyrics of the song.

On just a whim, I decided to check up another solo Rafi song composer. And guess what ? This song was very much a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet !

When I listened to the song, I realised that it was an suitable replacement for the song that I had originally planned and which turned out to have more than two voices.

So, I got a song which was the only occasion when this music director got to utlise Rafi’s voice in his compositions. And this song happens to be the 500th Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet in the blog.

This song in question is from a forgotten movie called “Ban Maanush”(1979). It was directed by Kamram Khan for O K Films, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Padma Khanna, Kamran, Uma Dhawan, Mohan Choti, Sundar, Ratan Mala, Monal, Rajan Kapoor, Habeeb, Hamid Khan, Sawan, Chaachi, Sabir, Ramjanam singh, Danny Junior (new discovery), Jagdep (special appearance) etc in it.

“Ban Maanush”(1979) had three songs in it. This song under discussion is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. So “Ban Maanush”(1979) makes its debut with this rare and special song.

The video of this song is very much available. One can see that the song is picturised as a qawwaali song where a gentleman and a lady assisted by their respective teams of chorus sing this song.

Good qawwaali’s in Hindi movies always have great lyrics in them. And this qawwaali is no exception. Farooque Kaiser is done very well in penning the lyrics of this song. Music is composed by Chaand Pardesi.

Qawwaali is one genre of song where picturisation plays as important a role as the lyrics is savouring and enjoying the song. The saying “the song is better heard than seen” does not apply to qawwaalis.

Qawwaalis were normally seen in muslim social movies. In these movies, qaawwaali are one occasion where the two genders are seen interacting with each other in full public view. It is one occasion where the two genders openly use amorous terms and the public (otherwise quite conservative) do not mind. I think this kind of qawwaalis have been invented in Hindi movies and I do not think amir Khusro, the creator of Qawwaali might have imagined that the qawaalis would serve this pupropse, viz helping the two genders (who otherwise remain segregated) to interact with each other and express their feelings with each other.

To help avoid embarrassment that may result if one a male and a female were to sing the song, the lead singers are supported by friends of the same gender to lend moral support by singing in chorus.

Another thing that one notices in these filmy qawwaalis are that the lyrics of this songs are quite liberal and broadminded and not at all conservative and narrow minded. One is readily reminded of the epic qawwaali of “Barsaat Ki Raat”(1960) that covers lots and lots of topics viz. Krishna, Radha, Meera, Buddha, Maseeh etc.

The qawwaali under consideration is a nice “expression of love” genre of qawwaali. I can see that Padma Khanna lip syncs in Asha Bhonsle’s song, but I am unable to identify the gentleman who lip syncs in Rafi’s voice.

This qawwaali is a forgotten gem from my college days which I had never heard before.

In summary, here are the salient features of this song post:-

1. This song is the only Rafi song that music director Chaand Pardesi composed in his career. And what a superb song it is. This article is our way of honouring the one Rafi song music director Chaand Pardesi.

2. This song is the 500th duet song sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. What to say about this feat. These two legends have easily sung the most number of duets songs ever. I have not yet counted the number of duets sung by them, but I have read an estimate this puts this figure to over 800 ! The second most prolific duet singing pair happens to be Rafi-Lata pair. They are a “distant” second with “just” 400 plus duets. 🙂

3. This song is the 14300th song of the blog. The previous blog century was achieved on 23 march 2018. So this century has taken 32 days.

There was a time when we used to clock centuries in 16 days. We may have slowed down, and in the course of this century we even had a dot day, but at least the musical bandwagon is still on the move. And this matters a lot.

We are on the verge of several landmarks in addition to the usual blog century landmarks. Lots of artists are closing in to their century and multiple century marks. Even a regular contributor is stuck on 199 (hint ! hint ! 🙂 ). So there are lots of exciting and interesting events ahead of us.

When one considers this series (pal do pal ka saath), this was only the second episode. There are more music directors with justone Rafi song to their credit. Their time would also come and we will honour them too with similar special write ups.

As for now, I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continuous support for nearly ten years. That reminds me, we are on the verge of completing ten years in another four months. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue to roll on and on and in the process we will find ourselves acquainted with lots and lots of great musical gems, and some of them for the first time.

This special song may well be the first time many of our music lovers will get to listen to this song. Here is this wonderful song from the golden era of HFM. Enjoy !

humne allaah se yaar maanga hain
humne allah se yaar maanga hai

sab kuch khuda se maang liya
uthte nahi hain, mere haath is dua ke baad
humne allah se yaar maanga hai
humne allah se yaar maanga hai

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
duaayen mangne se
chhaanv zulfon ki nahin milti
mohabbat zindagi ki sabse
mushqil aazmaayish hain
tadap hai dard hai aansu hain
ruswaai bhi hai ismein
magar ye aazma lene ke
kaabil aazmaayish hai

ye dil chaahe toote
padenge hum na jhoothhe
tumhare liye bekaraar honge
ye dil chaahe toote
padenge hum na jhhoothhe
tumhaare liye bekarar honge

ye dil chahe toote
padenge hum na jhhoothhe
tumhaare liye bekraar honge
uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

uthhaaye maine naina
to aar paar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge

hum jisko dil de den
usi ke yaar honge
tumhi ek nahin
sab nisaar honge
