ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 9
———————————————————————

My last post on our blog has been sometime back. I have been meaning to write about this song which has a couple of rare occurrences in the Hindi Film and Music world and was waiting for an opportune moment.

Recently, I have been fighting my own battles on my health front, having been hospitalised for surgical and advanced interventional pain management procedures, more than a couple of times in the last one year. I have diabetes, which is under control, however it has caused neuropathy in both my feet causing severe pain with tingling and burning sensations. I would like to take this opportunity to create awareness amongst all the readers of this blog that diabetes can be very dangerous and draining and that one should take care of their feet. One’s feet bear the entire weight of one’s body but always fail to get the attention and good care, as with other parts of the body.

Well, coming back to today’s post. Late last month, we, the regular (and irregular) contributors of this blog were told by our beloved SudhirJi, that the blog was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its creation and that song posts were expected from all the contributors. However, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t stick up to the deadline of sending in our contributions. However, Sudhir Ji would not relent and sent me another request to send in my post. This made me very embarrassed and I made a promise to myself that come what may, I will write my post and send it today, three days after my second extended deadline.

My association with this blog actually started around two years after I started my Facebook group – Rare Hindi Film Songs in 2010. In searching for old and rare songs to post, I would often visit the blog and later I came to know that even Atul Ji, the creator of this blog was a member and a regular visitor of my group. However, it took me almost 4 years to write my first post – for the song “Chup Chup Chup Kyon Baithe Ho” – and send it to Atul Ji for moderation and posting. Since then, I have been sending in my posts in bursts, start and stop.

Till date I have just posted about 20 odd songs, but I feel so much drawn to the Atulites group that I feel I have come to my home group amongst these various people across the world, who share similar passion and views. In particular, Avinash Ji and Sudhir Ji seem to like my kind of songs from movies of the 70s and early eighties, not that others are not encouraging.

My heartiest congratulations to Atul Ji, ASAD, Atulites and all the people who love HFM, on the 10th anniversary of this endeavour !!!

Now coming to today’s song. As I have mentioned above, this is a special song for me as it has a few rare characteristics associated with it, in the HFM world and also since it is quite a rare song. It is from the Pran, Navin Nischol and Rekha starrer ‘Dharma’ released in 1973. Two other songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog. For those who haven’t seen the movie or have forgotten it, the plot summary can be read here on IMDB.

Now, coming to this song with ‘Two Rare Occurrences’ for a Hindi movie!

It is an almost eight minute long song, starting with a straight cut and paste of the song “Aur Mera Naam Hai Jameela” sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the 1967 film ‘Night in London’ (composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and penned by Anand Bakshi). In both the films, Helen is the dancer performing this song on screen. But of course, the choreography is different in the two films. In this clip from ‘Dharma’, only one stanza of the original song from ‘Night In London’ is included and it is about 2 minutes in duration. Well this is one rare thing.

The second and most important rare thing about this song is that after Helen’s initial lip syncing to this cut-paste song, the actual song, sung by Asha Bhosle, is lip synced by four of the best cabaret dancers of that era. Of course after the Numero Uno – Helen – who’s in the first part. The subsequent segments are performed by Faryal, Sonia Sahani, Jayashree T and Bindu.

The video opens with Helen beginning the dance with some male dancers. The music has already begun. We can also see Ramesh Deo with Asit Sen, who is watching the dance wide-eyed and lecherously. They go to another dance bar and Faryal starts her part followed by Sonia Sahni performing in the third bar. In the fourth bar, Jayashree T is performing bhangra. In the last bar, they do drugs with drinks while Bindu is performing. In this film, Madan Puri and Ramesh Deo are together shown to cheat rich men by taking them to clubs and tempting them with wine and women. The song shows Seth Garib Das (Asit Sen) is being trapped by them and this cabaret number is organized for him.

I hope all of you like the interesting facts of this song as well as the song. Please comment.


Song – Arey Saaqi Jo Kal Ki Hai Bachi Baaki (Dharma) (1973) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Omi, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Sonik-Omi

Lyrics

yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

har ek dil ko dhadakne ki aadat huyi
main jis gali se bhi guzri qayamat huyi
log nazren bichaane lage
log nazren bichaane lage
haal dil ka sunaane lage
yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
utha parda
dekh jalwa
ke sheeshe mein
jawani ab utar jaaye
arey saaqi

rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
aa
rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
soyi hui jawani ko
tu chhoo ke zara jaga ja
meri nigahein, aadayen ye baahein bulaayen
veeraa. . .
hahh veeraa. . .aah
la laa la laa la laa la laa

o ho
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
arey saaqi

dil le ja nishaani
badi meherbaani
haaye dil le jaa nishaani
badi meherbaani
teri jiyegi
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
o mere dil jaani
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
ho mere dil jaani
haaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajana..aa..aa. . .

dum mein dum hai to dum laga
duniya kya hai nasha hi nasha
aasmaan ke baadal to
kuchh bhi nahin
mazaa to tab hai ke
zameen pe baadal bana
mere humdum
raat hai kam
ke baaton mein
ye saari
raat na jaaye
mere humdum. . .

यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

हर एक दिल को धड़कने की आदत हुई
मैं जिस गली से भी गुज़री क़यामत हुई
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
हाल दिल का सुनाने लगे
यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
उठा पर्दा
देख जलवा
के शीशे में
जवानी अब उतार जाये
अरे साक़ी

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा
सोई हुई जवानी को
तू छू के ज़रा जगा जा
मेरी निगाहें अदाएं ये बाहें बुलाएँ
वीरा॰ ॰ ॰
हाहह वीरा॰ ॰ ॰ आहह

ओ हो
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
अरे साक़ी

दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
हाय दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
तेरी जिएगी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
ओ मेरे दिल जानी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
हो मेरे दिल जानी
हाए वे सुन सजना

तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

दम में दम है तो दम लगा
दुनिया क्या है नशा ही नशा
आसमां के बादल तो
कुछ भी नहीं
मज़ा तो तब है के
ज़मीं पे बादल बना
मेरे हमदम
रात है कम
के बातों में
ये सारी
रात ना जाये
मेरे हमदम॰ ॰ ॰

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet #60 # Missing RD Burman movies of 1971-1980
—————————————————————————————————-

 Today 4th January is the twenty third ‘Remembrance Day’ (27th June’1939- 04th January’1994) of the ‘versatile genius’ RD Burman or our beloved Pancham Da. On this occasion here is a song from the movie ‘Rani Mera Naam’ from  1972.

The film was directed by KSR Das for ‘Balkrishna Movies, Madras’. It had Vijaylalita, Premnath, Ajit, Madan Puri, Anwar Hussain, Iftikhaar, Natrajan, Jagdeep, Jayshree T, Faryal and Baby Sridevi. Vinod Mehra did a special appearance in this movie. Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Pandari Bai made guest appearances while Ashok Kumar and Om Prakash made friendly appearances in this movie.

This movie has four songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by RD Burman. There are three solos of Asha Bhonsle, and one duet song sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.04.1972. By introducing this movie on the blog, we are adding one more of RD Burman’s missing movies from 1971-1980 on the blog.

As it happens with me while introducing a new movie on the blog, this time also, I was in dilemma about the song to be shared first. Finally, I decided to go by the first song in the movie as listed in HFGK. This song is picturized on Faryal – the yesteryears’ actress who has performed many dances including many cabarets in those days.The video link also gives her date of birth which is 3rd November 1945, which matches with her date of birth an mentioned on the anniversary page of the blog.

I am not aware much about her personal life. I remember watching her in many movies of the seventies. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light about the actress and her movies and on the songs of this movie ‘Rani Mera Naam’. I am reproducing below the information about her as available and taken from Wikipedia. The page is available here

 

Faryal (born 3 November 1945 in Syria) is an Indian film actress and dancer of mixed Indian and Arabic descent working in Hindi films. She was a popular Bollywood cabaret dancer and actress in the 1960s and 70’s.

Faryal was born in the Damascus area of Syria on 3 November 1945 to an Indian father and a Syrian mother. She completed her education at Loretto Convent, Simla, Cathedral High School and St. Xavier’s College, Bombay. Faryal worked for a while as an air hostess in Air India before joining films. She is a product of the ‘Filma­Iaya School of Acting’.

Faryal entered Bollywood in 1965 in the black-n-white movie ‘Zindagi aur Maut’, as a lead role opposite Pradeep Kumar. This film contained famous song “Dil Laga Kar Hum Ye Samjhe” sung solo by Asha Bhonsle and Mahender Kapoor. Both these songs are available on YouTube. Faryal was liked by people and resulted in her getting lead role in film ‘Biradari’ (1966) opposite Shashi Kapoor. The movie was a total flop. She was noted for her role as a cabaret dancer in the movie ‘Jewel Thief’ released in 1967. After the movie’s release, offers started pouring in. In an interview in 1973, Faryal stated that “Ever since Goldie cast me in that glamorous dancer’s role in Je­wel Thief,  film makers have looked upon me as an “excel­lent cabaret dancer”.” Whereas in reality I have never learnt dancing,” “I don’t even like dancing; I rather hate it”. At first afraid of being typecast, Faryal was reluctant to accept the numerous offers that she received soon after the release of Jewel Thief. But gradually she realized that if she refused the roles there were ten others ready to replace her. And now the bath tub scene in ‘Apradh’ released in 1972 had given me an even worse image”. Faryal retired from movies in 1984 after her performance as the girlfriend of Jeetendra in ‘Gold Medal’.

 Let us now enjoy the song under discussion …

The best thing about Holi songs is that in most cases, the message of colors is immediately apparent in the coloring of the lyrics. The songs get created in the spirit of Holi itself. It is a social and group celebrations, and the songs of this festival are sung by multiple singers, and performed by a multitude of players on the screen. And as we sit down to color code the lyrics, the resulting view is as colorful as the festival itself.

Greetings to Faryal on her birthday today (3rd November).

When she appeared on the film scene in 1965-66, the she was christened as the Sophia Loren of the Indian film industry. Considered to be one of the more daring cabaret dancers on screen, she actually expressed her extreme dislike for it, stating that primarily she is not a dancer, she never trained to be. But that is the industry and the type casting for you.

I love to liken the journey of this blog to a non stop long distance travel by road. As long as the vehicle and the road are working smoothly, one tends to pass milestones after milestones in no time. It is only when one is forced to push the brake down that one realises how fast one was travelling !

Sizzlers of the 60s – the phrase brings a handful of names to the mind. Of course, we have Helen and Bela Bose. And there are some performances by Aruna Irani, Laxmi Chhaaya. But talking of performances worthy of burning down the projection screens, the one name that you cannot do without is Faryal. This fairy queen of cabaret was a strong contender for the number two spot behind Helen, for long years in the 60s and 70s. Her dance numbers in films like ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967) (on instrumental music) and ‘Taxi Driver’ (1973) “Pyaar Karte Ho Yaar. . .” are some of the most fascinating cabarets in Hindi cinema.

Perhaps there is something about me which makes me always root for the underdog in any situation. In the very first men’s singles Wimbledon tennis final I followed, I rooted for the 40-year old Ken Rosewall as he was brutally brushed aside by the 22-year old all-conquering Jimmy Connors.
